A Good Time

Today I saw a lot of stuff I liked and just decided to put them all on at the same time. It works, right?  Shylah Honey’s latest makes me want to get out my crimper and go to town.

Reunion

The Walking Dead returned last week and with it my love of 9pm on Sundays, even if I do have to cover my eyes through about 50% of the show each week. I always like to pick a scene from each episode to try to approximate, and this one was one of my favorites. The only difficulty was how to get all the guns and things on them and have them still be able to hug. You can find all my past Walking Dead tribute photos here.

Florence

I loved this gorgeous jewelry set from Florence the minute I saw it, and knew I would have to find a way to work it into a photo. Caelan Hancroft continues to crank out beautiful piece after beautiful piece. Ikon Innovia’s beautiful Hope eyes sparkle through my lustrous locks from Damselfly.

Obsession

My Slink Obsession has begun and it’s hard not to be obsessed with the many Slink accesory items available. Probably my favorite so far are the That Night sandals from Bliensen+MaiTai, but I am am feeling the love for many items. My Slink Obsession runs through the 22nd of August and features items for all Slink body attachments.

The Black Magic nails from Wicked Peach were so cute that I was obliged to take a close-up photo to show them better.

The Pain Tithe

I’ve written about Laini Taylor’s outstanding novels Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Days of Blood and Starlight before, but since it’s Halloween-time all of my favorite creepy characters are making their way to the forefront of my mind. So today we have Karou, a chimera soul in a human body, stuck between two worlds and creating bodies for for the endangered chimera race. Karou has to make do with what she can find though, so some of her bodies are a bit unusual

102913a

A downside to this magic is that it must be paid for with physical pain, so Karou is pretty beat up looking all of the time, since she is building an army. I wouldn’t trade places with her, but I still want her blue hair!

Catch Up

It has been a few days since I was able to blog so I have a few pictures to throw in this time. To begin, one of my favorite items from Fameshed this round is the gorgeous spring dress from Valentina E.

060613a

 

Endra Graves opened a clothing store a couple of months ago called Gatsby’s, so Endra now offers lovely mesh clothing designs as well as jewelry, for which she is best known. This little red and black number is adorable. Also a favorite is the Millie skin from Belleza that was out for Fifty Linden Fridays last week. I look forward to seeing Millie in more tones! And if Ivey Deschanel’s gorgeous Helena dress last week wasn’t enough for you, she has also released these bold mesh earrings.

New at Snatch

The new Helena dress from Ivey Deschanel is beautiful and elegant. It comes with eight different color options with black detailing on the back of the bodice. It gave me a good reason to put on a gown for once!

    When I saw this pic of flickr I was like WOAH that is a gorgeous dress and showcasing photo, but to learn that it is from Snatch… even MORE woah! It’s a step away from her usual style but man is it gorgeous!!!

    Thank you so much! Beautiful pic <3

Snow Day

Do any of you have a friend that not only lets you dress them up for pictures but also tolerates snow being stuffed in their face? I do.

Clearly he’s a keeper. Stewart is bearing the switch to mesh clothing with good grace…most of the time. And he does wear it well!

121112c

And speaking of keepers, there is so much fabulous mesh goodness flying around this holiday season. The Frostbite Cottage has been a huge hit since Collabor88 opened last Saturday. I personally haven’t wanted to take off Trill Zapatero’s  gorgeous knitted sweaters since the minute they came out. And Scout Danger of Sanctuaire has made a wonderful mesh tree in three different versions, undecorated, lights only or fully decorated. Add to that the lovely mesh giftboxes from Cory Edo and my cozy boots from KKC, and I am one happy girl.

Happy Halloween

Here’s wishing everyone a safe and fun-filled holiday. Tonight I showcase my favorite spooky haunt this year, the Calas Galadhon Journey to the Lost City sim. It’s fantastically done and as creepy as you could wish for.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Feldgrau

In front of the barracks,
In front of the main gate,
Stood a lamppost,
If it still stands out front,
So will we see each other there again,
By the lamppost we’ll stand,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Our two shadows
Looked like one.
That we were so much in love,
Anyone could see at a glance.
And everyone will see it,
When we stand by the lamppost,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Already called the guard,
“They’re blowing taps.
That could cost you three days!”
“Comrade, I’ll be right there.”
Then we said farewell,
How much would I have rather gone with you,
With you, Lili Marleen.

It knows your footsteps,
Your beautiful walk.
It burns every evening,
Although it forgot me long ago.
And if a mishap should befall me,
Who will stand by the lamppost,
With you, Lili Marleen?

Out of the silent space,
Out of the depths of the earth,
Lifts me as in a dream
Your loving mouth.
When the nocturnal mists swirl,
I will be standing by the lamppost,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Lili Marleen, German Love Song

Thanks to Stewart for the idea this week. Since our color got a bit military I made him dress up as a soldier. This song was a favorite of both German and Allied soldiers during World War II. At the bottom of this post I have pasted a video for anyone wanting to hear the real thing!

Congratulations to Caroline Endersleigh, who wins the Maitreya dress from last week. Send me an IM in-world to let me know which color you would like!

For next week, I will give away a gift card from Sn@tch. Ivey Deschanel is one of the great cornerstones of SL fashion and her recent mesh work is to die for. You know the drill!

    Love the idea! You’re a beautiful Lili Marlen:)

  2. Nicandra Laval

    War is terrible..as even can be felt in the sad song too. Mixed feelings seeing the german uniform too many innocent people died because of that terrible war,Eliza..but you look beautiful as Lili Marleen

  3. Alexandra

    This is fantastic ! You actually show the essence of feldgrau. Love your Lilli Marlene re-enactment unter die Lanterne.

  4. Softpaw Sommer

    Wow, your photos are so romantic.

  5. Sama Yalin

    Love the first picture: romantic and also a bit melancholic. There must have been many couples like that, where the young man never returned home.

  6. Rudhmellowen

    WOW, just wow!!! I love the romance and the history
