Cherry Bomb

Diner_004

As a temporary reprieve from the horror and bloodsucking gore of the season, I thought I’d post this wee number harking back to a more innocent time. The skirt is gorgeous isn’t it? It’s by Lis at the Marketplace and is called “Strawberry Lolita.” Of course, it costs a handsome zero Lindens.  I’m guessing from the name it’s intended more as a kawaii item, but I think it works perfectly as a 1950’s skirt too. If this wasn’t Second Life you’d need some seriously starched petticoats to keep that baby aloft!

Photos at the wonderful Silver King Diner. Drop by for a cheeseburger & cherry cola and while you’re there grab free roller skates or rezz up an awesome scooter! Anastasia careered around wildly on hers for a while until she became wedged in a security barrier. Good times!

Salem Bound

Witch house_008

Have you visited the latest Fantasy Creator’s Showcase Event – Allhallow’s? Filled with skew-whiff rickety houses showcasing specially selected wares from talented creators in the field, each vendor has also put out a free gift hidden in a giant pumpkin. They are relatively easy to find and the gifts are a cut above, in my humble opinion. It runs from Sept 2 – Oct 31 so there’s still plenty of time.

While there, check out the Little Old Witch Brewery. by Boudoir. A beautifully detailed little home and workshop for the magically inclined.

All items $L0.

Anastasia wears –

Dress – The Chattel of Salem. Kitty Creations, Medieval Fantasy Hunt 2015 prize. It also comes with an interactive Medieval Iron collar for the masochistic amongst us. The men’s prize also included is called The Barbarian of Salem, so I think you can see how this is all going! (I had a little trouble with fitting as the alpha doesn’t extend all that far, but by putting Anastasia on a crash diet and down to her thinnest we got there!)

Lipstick – pink. From multi-colored lipstick basics. TILLY, Marketplace.

Asylum Alice

Asylum_005

In honour of Halloween…my favourite season in Second Life offering so much exquisite Gothiness…here is an old favourite from The Little Bat. Alice in Wonderland so lends itself to feakishness doesn’t it? And whimsy too. A theme so many of us love. This outfit also came with a Cheshire grin…not worn as it creeped me out too much!
