Not everyone knows this, but I’m actually a Spaniard. My mother is from Spain, and I’m a dual citizen and bilingual. I’ve wanted to do a sort of Spanish-themed image for awhile now, and with the release of this lovely hair from Beusy I felt I could finally get something I wanted. I had to combine it with Kaorinette’s beautiful cheek brands, of course!

Btw, if you haven’t gone already, Beusy is offering both of her hairs at N21 for L$375 each for the full fatpack. It’s an incredible deal, so don’t miss out.

Rewind.

What a fun, adorable event, honestly. I’m a 90’s kid, and everything that the designers have put out has given me an almost physical wave of nostalgia. Hell, the two gachas by Plastik and CureMore (the Cureless/Moon Amore collaboration brand) are basically my childhood in a box.

Moon tickled my grunge-loving self with her two new hairstyles, and for once I picked the shorter hair. She named them Lithium and Sex Type Thing–two of my favorite songs of pretty much all time.

It’s absolutely worth heading over to check out the awesome stuff available. I’ll be going back for a few more things shortly.

Thanks to both Vae and Kaorinette for the adorable gachas. ♥

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.

She smiled, and to my surprise I saw not the simple neat fangs of the Kindred but rather a mouthful of shark’s teeth, the color of old ivory even in the moonlight and marked with stains whose origins I did not wish to dwell on.

“Nagaraja,” I breathed, and she smiled wider still. 

“You know something of my kin?” she asked, her voice accented–British, perhaps, almost certainly by way of India. I nodded. I could feel her gaze even behind the dark glasses she wore. I could not show weakness; she was a predator unlike any of her kind. 

She laughed suddenly, a quick, sharp sound like a sliver of broken glass, and then all traces of mirth vanished, replaced by a cunning look that made the hairs on the back of my neck rise. 

“If you know us, then you’ll know that we prefer to remain sequestered away, locked in labs and morgues and high rise apartments sealed against the sun.” Her look turned scornful, and she shook her head. “I am not such a…what’s the phrase? Wet blanket, I believe?” She paused briefly, studying me, and I realized she truly wanted a response.

“Yes,” I said, after pausing for a moment myself. I started to say something else, but stopped, strangely not wanting to give offense. Her mouth twitched.

“You think to ask why I violate the Masquerade, don’t you?” She drew closer, and I realized I had made a terrible mistake.

I found it hard, it’s hard to find
oh well, whatever, never mind

Been in a grunge mood lately. Naturally I had to go to Vinyl, right? Kind of a short entry today as I’m feeling pretty bushed from work, but I’ve been listening to my 90s music playlist all afternoon and this just had to be a thing.

I’m fairly old in terms of the internet community these days, especially in the gaming crowd. Most of the people that play in my Dota 2 league are in their early 20s or even younger. They don’t really know anything about the bands I grew up listening to, or why grunge was such a thing for the whole “disaffected youth” demographic. Music has never been an “answer” for me the way it has been for other people, but there are songs I just remember over and over, and listen to over and over, and they feel timeless to me, like I’m a teenager again.

Not that I would ever want that, mind.
