DANCE RITUALS OF THE RY’LEH

“Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.”— H.P. Lovecraft

 

Greetings fashion gems across the grid! Our annual Lovecraftian festival known as “Lovefest” has been inaugurated with a wonderful opening gala! The music maestro known as “The Dark Doll”  one Fitch Lekvoda was absolute delectable and deviously spooky.  It set my avatar in the mood to dance, the following night over at Club Zero the club’s PR department dedicated their weekly  “Fantasy Friday” theme to Lovefest with the event so fondly titled “Cthulhu & The Numbers of the Beast”  a certain Ry’leh disciple found herself there and was it truly a spectacle to behold.  When you go to a dance club you are there mainly for the music. Oh yes it’s nice to look on point and join a group dance hud to oscillate with your friends.  Yet in the end its always about the beat of the music a gateway to the soul.  So the question gets dared ask.  What would a Ry’leh disciple  dance to?  What invisible rthythm’s that only they can hear? In this blog we did an homage to Lovefest both past and present.  Decor are from recent Lovefest festivals of 2016 & 2017 featuring eye popping items from MORBID FLESH, Simply Shelby Pixelancer, Unzipped,Btd, ~*Souzou Eien*~,Zero % and many more!  With this post I focused less on fashion and more  of the decorating angle. However I do wish to give kudos on the skin one of my favorite Drow skins from Lure and to give that spooky allure the “Desire” skin and course its not Lovecraft without something of tentacular proportions.  From Sweet Thing.  we have one “Tentacle Embrace”.  I hope everyone so far is enjoying the festivities of Lovefest 2017 so far!

IN SEARCH OF THAT INNSMOUTH RITZ

Omnibus in foro S.P.D.

“That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.”–  H.P. Lovecraft

“Yea though I walk in the valley of shadows, I shall fear no evil, my wickedry is that of my own doing.” Come ye villains and  sometime heroes its time for the spooky and morose to annually gather for the Lovefest 2017 Festival!  Every year the Society of Innsmouth plans and puts together  Lovefest a celebration of the birthday of famed horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (Cthulhu’s Daddy)! It is a collaboration of many designers and builders across the grid of Second Life that come together and celebrate all that is Lovecraft.  This year our artists have outdone themselves with a theme of “Into The Depths”  (I know that phrase does sound familiar doesn’t it? lol). Join us starting from August 17th-27th a plethora of performances, a market of yummy shoppable items to purchase, spooky commaderie, and a masquerade ball there’s plenty to see and do this year. Speaking of yummy items to be purchased featured below is a fabulous dress by [EvelineInTheBox] called “Adella” which will be available at Lovefest this year, comes in both popular mesh body sizes, standard sizes,various colors, and also fitted mesh! Paired with one of  my favorite hairs “THEA” from .:EMO-tions: and the white pearl was the jewel theme of choice. Topping it off  with some strappy heels from #Empire the lovely “Lotus” heels to create a simple but signature look.  The ambiance I was trying to capture with  the photos was myself as an Innsmouth Resident on my way to a “gathering of sorts”.  Now what kind of “sorts” I shall leave it up to the reader of course to figure out. Stay tuned and make sure you make it to Lovefest this one of a kind festival in SL!

“BON SNOW WHITE”

Omnibus in foro S.P.D.

“Mirror Mirror on the wall, Who is the fairest of them all?”— Evil Queen Grimhilde- The Brothers Grimm

Ever wondered if life could truly be a fairy tale?  You know at the end of the day, you don’t have to work the Prince Charming is actually charming and you slayed all the evil step parents.  The story of Snow White has been a long fascination for me.  A princess gets mistreated her entire existence.  For simply being considered “beautiful” by everyone else around her.  This causes her step parent to have  a deep rooted hatred and even several assassination attempts.But if you read the tale of Snow White carefully, never ever did she consider herself to be the “Fairest of them all” it was everyone else.  I know kinda eye opening when you actually think about it. So in today’s concept we give ode to the lovely “Snow White” this time with a bit of modern vintage flair.  The “Bon Bon” outfit from .::{Solstice}::. gives our Snow White some shimmy to sashay what the Brothers Grimm of Linden Labs gave her.  I am quite fond of the outfit as I find it accentuates curves most gracefully and its also compatible for the mesh bodies.  Another treat found were the “Xenira” eyes from Sucidal Unborn a very new release which they were awesome to include catwa and omega appliers! And to give our BonBon the vixenish look I discovered a very cute eyeshadow at the recent round of .Suicide DollZ. the latest from .ARISE. the “Rina” eyeshadow.   I decided to keep true to famed verses of the fairy tale, so for a pale skin we went with the “Varda” skin from Lumae, for ravenesque tresses- I did two hairs  for my longer look the lovely “Thea” from .:EMO-tions:.  and the “Widow” hair from  DOE.  for my updo.  Yes I will admit my “Snow White” may not be so innocent but it is perhaps she may have learned a thing or two from the wicked queen. So how about them apples?  ;-P

“A WHIMSICAL DANDY”(***SPECIAL ONE SHOT PHOTO***)

Omnibus in foro S.P.D.

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.” —Rudyard Kipling

Greetings Second Lifers!  Yes its been a while, but those of us who dwell in the depths have been busy with mostly RL things of here and there.  But I for the moment have returned to the depths and I offer this wonderful photo! As most of you are aware that the grid has done that “Bento” thing.  And my avatar is no exception, I recently purchased the “Catya” Bento Mesh head from Catwa and I tell you.  I am amazed. Yes there is quite a learning curve if you have never used a mesh head before.  Yes you will want to pull your hair out, curse the designer, and other things out of mass frustration.  But the quality of it cannot be match.  It’s the awesome yo.  The fact you can customize your own face in pure mesh is worth it.  Trust me ladies its so very worth it.  So this is a very special one shot photo done by the wonderful London Amaterasu Hecate-Tunwarm (my waifu ya’ll!) forever in gratitude of her endless creativity she takes my avatar to new levels.  With this concept its very playful feminine dandy with a dash of Victorian burlesque.  I look forward to 2017 “The Year of Bento” within our Second Lives.

DEVIL’S BRIS

Omnibus in foro S.P.D.

“Build a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day.  Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.” —-Terry Pratchett

The star sign Sagittarius is associated with fire.  Did you know that?  I mean we all know about the Centaur association but fire too?  An excellent combination to say the least.  Now my astrological sign is Gemini and its element is “Air” but hey that’s besides the point.   When you think of “Fire” what do you think?  The strength, the power, the destruction, or the cleansing?  Well Lady Falta and the house of Sugar Mesh  brings you a smoking top with its own fire .  The “Candy” Top will surely set hearts on fire and then some.  Its cute, sexy, fits perfectly, and gives a great midriff look as far as tops go.  With today’s concept I went with something engulfed with flames.  I decided for a Doo-Wop  rockabilly concept and found these adorable Cherry Capris at Goth1c0 to go along with the “Candy” halter top.  What can I say the devil in me came out and I wonder if it can bring out the fire in you 😛

FAWN SEEKS SANTA FOR A NEW JINGLE

Omnibus in foro S.P.D

“Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy.”—-Edwin Osgood  Grover

Tis the season of Yuletide mirth, mischief, and the mass gathering of loot from other people.  Even on the grid of second life, those we call Second Lifers get all up in the mood for winter.  You will see glacial kingdoms, winter wonderlands, and yep you guessed it Santas Workshop makes an appearance.   But what that’s not all folks, when there is winter there is also some serious smoking hot fashion.  As you can take for example the lovely “Jella” dress from sponsor BLASPHEMIC.  A lovely lace like ensemble that accentuates the curves quite nicely.  The “Jella” dress comes in mesh body compatibility and every size known to woman plus many a color including a very nice holly-like red which I found most delightful!   Also while you can ladies pick up the new “Glitteratti” heels from REIGN. I know Reign made a glittery shoe *gasp gasp gasp* and they are wonderful I can truly attest! With today’s concept I went back to my old skin tone of caramel to create a Fawn, her goal you say?  Is to find Santa she needs a new jingle in her step lol!    Those of those us who dwell in the depths encourage and wish all grid folk a Happy Holiday season.  May you rack up as much loot as the best Buccaneer and find your partridge in a pear tree 😀

“GONE FERAL”

Omnibus in foro S.P.D.

“All good things are wild, and free.”—Henry David Thoreau

There is something to getting in touch with your “Inner Wild Child”-  I mean we all have them. They lurk about in the inner depths of your mental psyche, just begging to be let out. The clawing, scratching, tearing of any barrier that separates you from said beast.  Sometimes mine likes to come out and say hello every one in a while.  It’s good for the soul every once in occasion.  Like recently with the newest group gift from.:Soul:.with the Fala Ethereal-Leopard skin, which is a group gift from good ole Charlie Senpai.  The catch is you have to catch the lucky chair in your legacy name, not an easy feat.  Took myself three days, but three days well worth it! I mean those leopard spots are just fierce! You can also simply the buy the skin if you don’t want to go through the wheel-of-lucky-chairs but whatever you decide may the odds may ever be in your favor lol.  So another gem that was sent to me were the new leg straps from sponsor BLASPHEMIC which are exclusive for Maitreya body and it does come in as usual different hues.  They fit actually most seamless and great for those wilder looks.  With today’s concept  I wanted something most Fantasy like to go with the skin.  So I did a complete Fantasy style leopardess, complete with hawk talons, dragon eyes, and leopard skin.  I go where the wild things are so come follow me 😀
