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. 😉

Real life has been kind of miserable lately–guy troubles are the best, let me tell you–and I felt like I was so done with all of it. I wanted to wash my hands of it and not care anymore. It didn’t work, but I feel a little bit better when I play dress up, and I ended up deciding to just make a blog post. 😀

The skirt I’m wearing here is the free group gift from Vinyl, which is featured on the new Lenox & Blueberry sim. Most SL residents know by now that Blueberry and its associated stores (Addams, Bueno, Just Because, etc) are becoming incredibly popular due to their high quality products and fitmesh options for nearly all of the major mesh bodies on the market. I have to say, I really like this skirt a lot. It’s beautifully made, and–as you’ll see the more I post–I love anything post-apocalyptic or grungy or blood-stained. This fits all three! It’s called the Zeppelin skirt (after Led Zeppelin, of course), and I think it’s fantastic.

I also really, really like that the clothes at Vinyl are named after musicians or bands, especially since most of them are bands I grew up listening to.

The top is a cute knotted piece, the Kelly Tank by Tee*fy, at the round of Collabor88 that just ended. There are a ton of options and colors, but as a Redditor the NOPE shirt appealed to me the most. The shirt is available in standard sizing and fitmesh options for Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies.

Makeup-wise I’m wearing two relatively new releases from Nox, which is my favorite makeup store on the grid at the moment. I love their colors, interesting concepts, and fun styles, and since Anya puts out a new shadow or lip at every round of The Dressing Room Fusion, I snap them up instantly. Right now I have on the Toxic Shadow from the last round of TDRF, and their new Decay Lip for the Mix event. Still rocking my Izzie’s tattoo from my last post as well!

Finally, I picked up these kickass dragonscale bracelets from The Instruments, which had a Game of Thrones-inspired round that ends on July 9th. They come in three different colors–black, gold, and silver–and come with a HUD to change some of the scales in a stripe pattern. As I said before, anything snake-themed gets my vote, and I love how they look on my hands. They come rigged for Slink casual hands, system avatar hands, and an unrigged version. I’ve also got on the Master’s Ring from Proclivity at Romp, and on my left wrist is the new Edge Cuff from Lost Junction, also at Romp.
