Backcountry Dust

The tour is over and I’m goin’ home
Home to my baby, the bike of my own
So good to hear her, so nice and so clean
Hard to believe it, she’s just like a dream

-AC DC

Oh yeah, let’s get down with the music!

First off I have to make a huge correction, the hair from Mithral Apothecary that I wore the other day, isn’t from Kustom9, but it is this hair, Olive. Oops! As usual, Evadne outdoes herself and make such beautiful hair. I really like how it is blown out, yet sleek, perfect for the outfit and mood I am going for today.

Powder Pack for Lelutka just released the September box, and I found so many things I want to share with you. Today I am wearing .ARISE.‘s Carol Makeup Set, both the lipstick and the eyeshadow. I am in love with the eyeshadow’s metallic textures. Such a well-done job by Helga. I am also wearing new eyes by [ MUDSKIN ]. Instead of blue, they are a mysterious violet, which is perfect because they are called the “Soul Eyes.” These could become permanent so I will play around with them a little more to see how I like them, or if I want to play around with different eyes in the future.

The top I am wearing is a new mainstore release from Blueberry. The top and the included dress are cute and sexy all at the same time and really makes me think I should really follow Blueberry‘s new releases more often!

Backcountry Dust

The jewelry is from Yummy at Collabor88‘s Birthday round which will be closing shortly. I thought the chunkiness of the necklace would be a nice contrast against the softer and lightness of the dress.

The boots are from A N E from the most recent Fifty Linden Friday. They are totally hot and I love them. Plus I was able to get them in two colors. I don’t wear a lot of boots, but these are perfect for my style.

Everyday Zombie Couture

I can just hear The Cranberries.

https://gyazo.com/f82d66910647174a926bc6eef0d5d754

Toxic air particles can you into a wheezing, infected individual. Use protection.

So I have another dystopian vision for you today. The gas mask from Cubic Cherry from Thereafter certainly fits the bill. The textures are phenomenal, and you can a variety of colors and options to chose from the color change HUD. I get to relive my childhood love of the PlayStation One classic, Bust-a-Groove, which was a rhythm game with all sorts music and dance styles and the techno character was named Gas-O, who naturally came with his gas mask.

I am also wearing two new makeups from alaskametro<3. For the eyeshadow, I am wearing her Cairo set at On9 which is with duo colors and a heavy liner. In the middle picture, I am wearing her Mistress lipstick at anyBODY which has a nice sexy liner to give it that sex appeal.

The Vinyl dress is from a brand new gacha event, Pocket Gacha! Yes, another gacha event, BUT, one that is HUD based and can be played anywhere! Now no more laggy sims because of all the scripts and overly complex avatars aren’t in one place. You can purchase tokens (1 token for every L$1) or just give the HUD permission to take out money from your personal account. Some designers give the option to purchase all the items at copy permissions, which is amazing! Pull prices vary from 50 tokens/L$ to 100 tokens/L$. Personally, I like the token system so I don’t end up spending my balance on gacha items, but it seems like people prefer giving permission.

Everyday Zombie Couture

I am becoming more enamored with using Windlights as my lighting for my photos, I am still wearing my Glam Affair Artic skin and it looks positively bone white.

There are a few more new items in the pictures. My hair is from Mirthral Apothecary for this month’s Kustom9. I thought it was a pretty hairstyle, perfect for more romantic, feminine blogs, but I love how it looks in the post-apocalyptic context. The sandals are fri.day‘s contribution to last week’s Fifty Linden Friday. I really like the straps and grommets on it. You can’t quite see it in the pictures with the gas mask, but I am wearing OXIDE‘s Nox choker, which is also from Thereafter.

Magical Sunset

A sky of orange, pink, and purple is an opulent one.

 https://gyazo.com/e12c40433eaaa9d64a110bd66b44baab

Playing the harp is a hard business.

Today I have for you a new sponsor, alaskametro<3! As you already know I am a huge fan of Alaska’s work and to be a blogger for her means a great deal. I am wearing three of her new releases. The Bali eyeshadow in the purple tone and the London lipstick in the reddish-nude tone, both are at On9, ending the last day of the month! The nails are from the Tropical/Shimmer set at the Cosmetic Fair, along with her Orchid lipstick. The Cosmetic Fair ends on the 30th.

I am also wearing Cubic Cherry‘s {Lovely Tears} set which is at Blush, which has been open for a couple days. It is all things kawaii and pastel. Tears and stars and hearts are color changeable in a variety of colors via a HUD; you can also make them transparent which is cool, but I like the boldness of the solid versions. Please note that the bright, white stars are from CURELESS [+] at a recent Fifty Linden Friday.

Sunset Magic

The dress is from Poppy at Whimsical and features lovely peony buds on the lower part of the dress. It comes in a variety of color combos so be sure to check it out. The hair is from Yse Salon, which is another new brand to me, at Hairology. The textures are perfect and I love how smooth the hair is.

Fire Country

I thought I would try something a little darker, both in the imagery and the actual lighting of the photos.

https://gyazo.com/3d77b1463870c21f86ec547083d10584

It isn’t terribly dark by SL standards so there is that!

Today, I’m wearing the two pieces put out by imbue. at SaNaRae‘s July Round. The knit top has a great texture. I really liked the layers/scallops and knew I had to get it. The jean skirt is also nice and I like the patterned pockets. The pockets come in three styles, normal and two patterns. Be sure to hurry to SaNaRae as this round closes in just a few days!

The hair is from Mithral Apothecary at Hairology. Mithral is one of my favorite hair brands because of her lovely ginger options. I like an orangey auburn/copper, not too dark or red, not neon orange. I will not buy hairs with the wrong color texture, so I really love it when I find a ginger that is perfect and give all my business to them. I also like Mithral‘s general style of meshing so I always enjoy trying on her hair.

In other news, I actually went to ROMP this round because I was trying to find a nice body suit, but I didn’t find any that worked for me. In addition to the body suit, I was looking for some nice domme shoes because every girl needs to stomp on their sub. I thought these from [BREATHE], which is quickly becoming a fixture on the event circuit, so I snatched these epic sandals right up. I also picked up poses from an lar [poses] without trying them so I was thrilled to find them perfect for blogging.

Rust Country

The jewelry is from two events happening now, Rewind and The Coven. The padlock septum is from The Horror!~, who is coming back from a short hiatus, at Rewind: 70’s Punk. Included in the pack are four metals and two versions, plain and one with an anarchy symbol.

The necklace is from The Coven sponsor .:Supernatural:. It comes with another necklace for layering and comes in either gold or silver. .:Supernatural:. has more necklaces out at her booth so be sure to make a visit at The Coven.
