halcyon days.

halcyon days.

HEY GUYS, I’M GOING ON VACATION.

Won’t have access to PS or photo taking stuff, but will probably be on SL anyway on my laptop.

The phrase “halcyon days” has always meant a lot to me, for a few different reasons. The best raiding guild I was ever in was called Halcyon, and I still am friends with people I met in that guild four years ago. It’s also a reference to Bleach. :v

See you on the other side of the pond!

I’ve been regressing into my old weeb habits. I spent the past few days rewatching the first 3 seasons of Bleach, which even now I still love despite all the weird shit that’s happened to it. I think the strength of the show and the manga has always been its characters; it’s certainly one of the biggest draws it has.

Admittedly, the first time I saw the Soul Society arc and got the twist and all the drama I was hooked. So maybe I’m biased.

I’ve been kicking around an OC for the series in my head so I figured I would flesh it out a bit here.

So I really like Overwatch. Pharah’s in my top three most played heroes, and I in general just adore her aesthetic. I’ve been wanting to do some “casual” Overwatch hero pictures and with the release of Vae’s new jewelry at N21 and at ROMP, I finally felt like I was ready to do it. Also, I had to add the wedjat tattoo in Photoshop ’cause I couldn’t find a good Omega or Catwa one inworld. Hint hint makeup designers.

Wheeeeeee.

Wearing a bunch of new stuff in this one! Shoutouts to the lovely Alice of Alice Project for review copies of her hair for HAIR FAIR ’16 (OMG, btw) and Vae, of course, for the beautiful jewelry set she’s done for The Epiphany.

“They call her Widowmaker,” he says, mouth twisting in a wry smile. 

I roll my eyes at him. “Nice cliche,” I say in response. “Let me guess, she’s a ruthless killer, best in the department. No one can hold a candle to her. Right?”

He shifts uncomfortably. “Well,” he starts, “yeah. But she didn’t start out with just anyone, dude. She killed her–“

He cuts himself off at the sound of heels clicking over cement. She passes by us, and as she does her green eyes, poisonous bright, lock with mine, and I want to cringe away from the look I see in them. There’s nothing there, just a yawning void. I blink first. She keeps walking, leaving behind the scent of orchids.

I turn back to him and he grimaces. “Who did she kill?” I ask him, my voice hoarse and whispery. He doesn’t look at me as he answers.

“Her husband.”

There’s so much good stuff coming out right now that I don’t even know where to begin with it all. So I kind of tossed a bunch of things together because I’ve been wearing this outfit for like, 3 days, and I’m in love with it. (Obviously the shirt is new.)

Oh, I finally caved and got a Catwa head. I’m pretty much in love with this one.
