Probably one of the weirder offerings in this round of Genre, The Stringer Mausoleum has offered these…headpieces for their Twilight Zone-inspired item. The hair comes in multiple different colors and actually sits backward on your head to create this peculiar, almost unsettling illusion.

I love the flowers and butterflies, personally, and applaud TSM for making something very unlike what we are used to seeing.

Feel free to check it (and the mesh eyes TSM also did for this round) out at Genre.

My first post for Genre! This month’s theme is “The Twilight Zone”. I really quite liked the Occultism Dining Set by Entity, so I wanted to show it off first. The chair has a variety of fun poses, animated and static, and it looks very nice with dramatic lighting.

If you’re interested in checking it out, I’ve included the taxi below in the credits. This round should definitely not be missed! It opens September 15th, so be ready!

IT HAPPENED!

The Dota 2 Reborn client finally launched, and with it, the Source 2 engine that we’d been waiting for. Once that happened I realized I’d been slacking super hard on my {ancients} series, which are outfits made in SL to represent Dota heroes. I present one of my favorite heroes in the game and in my top 3 most played–Traxex, the Drow Ranger.

When I first started doing these outfits, I didn’t have a blog, so I usually would post a quick blurb about the hero on Flickr and just went from there. But now I have a bit of space to sort of explain why I chose what I did.

To start off with, when I saw that Shantia of Zoul Creations was releasing a Drow skin for We ♥ RP, I knew I would finally be able to do a Traxex post. The skin is absolutely beautiful, wonderfully detailed with lots of appliers for mesh bodies (plus Omega) and with multiple makeup and brow options. After studying Traxex’s ingame model, I learned that she did NOT have white eyebrows; she has black ones, so I chose those brows for this picture. Her older model had facial tattoos that Mochi of Pink Fuel matched perfectly, included with her Sora Alabaster skin, so I wore them and tinted them to match the original Drow Ranger model.

The hair was another perfect fit, and I have to again thank Nova Faerye of Little Bones for providing me with a great customer experience. This hair was an older release she did for Uber in October of last year, and it was not in her store. I contacted her via NC and she responded super quick, offering me a discount on the product and sending it over right away. I loved how the lacing in the hair was very reminiscent of the icon for Traxex’s Gust ability, and that alone was enough to make it the right choice for this character.

For the clothes and jewelry, I lucked out–Foxes provided this sweater as an FLF release, along with the matching leggings, and it was something I’d been lusting after for awhile. In Traxex’s lore she’s an extremely solitary person, and this is reflected ingame as well–her Marksmanship ultimate is disabled if you’re within 400 units of her. Her Gust ability also knocks people away from her, and her Frost Arrows apply a heavy slow, so a giant “FUCK OFF” seemed to fit just right. These awesome thigh-high sneakers from Reign at an old Uber round were evocative of Traxex’s thigh-high boots, so that got tacked on too. I knew I wanted shorts as well to leave that Zettai Ryouiki zone open. The crossed arrow necklace from Kenzie was likewise a natural choice for Traxex. I mean, she’s an archer. It’s kind of her thing.

So! I’m really happy with how this turned out, and hope everyone else enjoys it too.

Woah, Nellie.

It’s been a month since I posted (!!) and boy am I salty about that. Real life decided to finally push Real Life 2: Back with a Vengeance to theaters, so I’ve been handling school, new hours at work, and preparing for the kitchen demolition in my house (redoing it finally!).

However, summer’s basically on its death knell, and the new round of Collabor88 with its Muted Coven theme is like water after a long run. Like many of my fellow bloggers and SL residents, I live for fall, and love the dark, Halloween-y themed stuff we’re going to be seeing for the next month or two. C88 was actually an insane treasure trove of new releases and I couldn’t just pick one thing to show off. My GetMeIn HUD went through quite a workout, let me tell you.

So, where to begin? Maybe with the wonderful new hair from Little Bones? (What, me relentlessly stanning for Little Bones?) This one’s called Spectre, which happens to be the name of one of my favorite Dota 2 heroes, and I love the sleek, refined look of this hair. It comes with and without the hat, but since everyone and their mother’s been channeling the AHS Coven look, I figured I would too.

The collar is from Baiastice and goes with their Bia dress, which I also purchased, but is a really lovely stand-alone piece. I really love crows and ravens and other corvids, so these feathers were just perfect. The cute pentagram necklace from Yummy looks like it was made to fit right over it.

Loving this top from Pixicat–as far as I’m concerned, Pixicat does no wrong; I can think of maybe ONE release they’ve had recently that I didn’t immediately salivate over. While the Tee*fy skirt I’m wearing here has its own top (and the Pixicat top its own skirt) I liked the pairing of the two together, finishing with the kickass ankle boots from fri.day, a brand I’ve loved 5eva. Both Pixicat and Tee*fy have killed it with their Maitreya fits, and fri.day has likewise offered all of her new releases for the Maitreya feet, making it a snap to wear everything right away.

Finally, these new scars from Izzie’s at The Dressing Room Fusion have become my latest obsession and I’ve layered them all on with gusto. Coming in multiple different skin tones with a huge variety of options to mix and match, they further reaffirmed my adoration of Izzie’s, and are definitely worth a pickup if you like that kinda look.

Now taking applications for membership in the Bitches of Eastwick. 😉
