Walking

I go out walking, after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just like we used to do
I’m always walking, after midnight
Searching for you

-“Walking After Midnight”,  Patsy Cline

As long as this is the case, I may as well walk beautifully in this gorgeous mesh gown from Mashooka.

When Summer’s End Is Nighing

So here’s an end of roaming
On eves when autumn nighs:
The ear too fondly listens
For summer’s parting sighs,
And then the heart replies.

This crisp and lovely jacket from PHILO pushed my mood even more firmly in the direction of the end of summer—the sea-like color, however, reminds me that the end has not come yet! And since I was thinking of things passed and things to come, I chose to wear Jamman’s Zodiac sign necklace. I show my own sign, Leo, here, but if I wanted to be an Aries or whatever the necklace includes all the signs of the zodiac.

The new cycle began today at the Designer’s Circle and I am wearing two of the new offerings today—first my pants from a new outfit called Dina from Crank Design, and my bag from the supremely talented JaneDark Miles at Beauty Code. The bag is available in black and white, for 5oL. I actually used the white version in a post a while back, you can see it here.

    What a sharp look! And such a lovely jacket. The excerpt of the poem? Took my breath away!

Crank

In looking around for a dark, gothic-esque place to take photos today I stumbled upon the Orbis of Cruor sim. It didn’t look extremely dark but I liked the colors and textures. After awhile the sim owner, Aridis Inaka, asked if there was some reason I was just standing around for like half an hour, and so we laughed and got to talking. Like many sim owners, Aridis got a little tired of doing all the same thing on her sim and has been making some changes—although she does maintain one club that the most gothic of gothies would love. Today I am only showing a building as a backdrop, but stay tuned for more from this great sim!

Crank Design just released this cute outfit called Nora and as I was in the mood for a little something different, this fit the bill! I call this my sissy goth look, since to be hard core I would need streaks or black lipstick or far more piercings, and would need to be a lot whiter. Smile And finally, I found some gorgeous but slightly creepy jewelry from Yelka Crumb. I just can’t stop looking at it!
