The Attic Witch

There is a new round of We <3 Role-Play going strong, and as always I found something fun to challenge my creativity. Koy released these awesome, witchy poses, and I’d just purchased the Vespertine skybox from the current round of Collabor88… and I knew they’d go perfectly together! This seductive gown is from Distorted Dreams, and is also available at We <3 Role-Play.

The Attic Witch

Ploom has a new hair release, in two versions, for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. I’m wearing Mystic 2 here. I love the curly, wispy hairbase this one comes with so much.

Cirque De Seraphim

Tomorrow at 12 pm SLT an amazing event, months in the making, will open to the public. Cirque De Seraphim is a fundraising event that will benefit the ASPCA. This is an event that is incredibly personal for me and my husband because our first dog was adopted at the ASPCA headquarters in Manhattan. He’d been hit by a car as a baby, and the ASPCA saved his life, and when he was ready, put him up for adoption. He was an amazing dog. Incredibly smart, sweet and born with wanderlust, just like his humans. We took him on many adventures in the nine years he was with us… and I still miss him every day. Arthur’s story can be read in full on the Cirque blog, along with a photo collage.

In the meantime, this event looks amazing and has so many talented designers who were willing to share their profits to benefit animal welfare. Please be sure you check out the official event blog for the maps, full opening information and sneak peeks at what will be available. Also, you can read the stories of other shelter pets who found forever homes with those involved in this amazing event here.

And if the blog sneak peeks aren’t enough for you, check out the Flickr group for even more!

On a final note, I want to add that winter is often the most difficult time for shelters. This event is perfectly timed to provide a much needed boost in funding for the ASPCA and all the work they do for animals. If you are participating, thank you. My Arthur got the chance to live and be a part of my life because of people who shared so generously of their money and time… you are giving other animals that same chance with your acts of kindness.

Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween. I’ll be blogging some pics of my home all decked out for the holiday in days to come, but for now I have a couple of other pics to share.

This first picture features some items from Collabor88′s current round, which has dark, moody colors and lots of spookiness! These boots and dress are from ISON. The boots are so amazing. They move so perfectly with my av and I love the ruched detailing on them. The slip dress is just freakin’ stunning. The way it gathers around the belly, and the wrinkles, god the wrinkles. I’ve spent way more time than is probably normal just admiring the wrinkles… the attention to detail in both of these pieces makes ISON creator Harry Hyx a genius in my opinion. My witchy broom pose is from Ploom and the hair, so delightfully messy, is from Exile and also is at Collabor88. The pumpkin pile is courtesy of What Next, and the spooky plank signs are from Sari-Sari.

Witchy Woman

This next pic features a new release from Pixel Mode, the Woodlands hot tub, which is currently available at The Liaison Collaborative. I fell in love with the rustic charm of this release, and decided to dress it up a bit for a Halloween hot tubbing party, with some help from What Next, Fetch, Ploom and Belleza. The adorable skin I am wearing is one of Belleza’s new group gifts (the other one is in the previous picture in this post!). My hair is from Ploom. It’s called Oh Deer, and includes two versions. One has a built in, deer inspired headband. The other has space for headbands inspired by other animals (sold separately). I’m wearing that version with the cat ears! The headbands are actually compatible with three new Ploom releases, so be sure to check them out.

Halloween Hot Tubbing

However you celebrate today, whether it’s Samhain and a religious festival, or just secular Halloween fun, I hope you enjoy! As for me? Well, I’ll be making Mummy Dogs and watching It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown with my husband tonight!

Miss October

In a month full of events there are two that are definitely worth a visit. One is the epic, interactive, incredible HavenHollow. If you go, bring a friend (or more than one). And if your computer can handle it, go through on ultra. I was able to, thanks to my recently acquired new video card, and it was really spectacular.

Another is L’Amitie Fall Market, a small, intimate gathering of talented designers offering adorable items.

This pic features the adorable Little Granny avatar from The Secret Store, which you can purchase at the HavenHollow Souvenir Shop. This avatar includes an adorable AO and a hud to change the colors of Granny’s glasses, sweater, skirt and slippers. There are also some free gifts at HavenHollow’s Souvenir Shop, including a cookie tray from The Secret Store that works with the Granny av.

The bench Granny is rather saucily lounging on is from Consignment for L’Amitie. This bench features 8 metal and plank colors, as well as season change leaves, making it perfect for year round use!

Miss October

HavenHollow closes at 11:59 pm on Halloween.

L’Amitie Fall Market runs through November 2nd.

Don’t miss out! Check them out today.

Autumn Fantasy

The Mystic Realms Faire ends tomorrow, so if you haven’t checked this event out yet, don’t wait! It’s two sims full of fantasy.

I wanted to share some of my finds from the event. First, I love this hair from Exile so much. The crown is optional, as well as texture change. My jewelry is also from Mystic Realms, by Cae. My gorgeous skin is the newly released Grace from Belleza.

Wood Elf

Koy released some awesome poses, complete with crossbow prop, for this event. And FATEplay has a new outfit, Surie, which is available in three different versions and plenty of color choices. This is my favorite version. The boots are included, too!

Defender of the Wood

For Mystic Realms, Consignment released this adorable little Planter’s Habitat home. The mushroom seat and faeries sign are part of this set.

Autumn Fantasy

Be sure to check out this great event before it ends tomorrow!

PS. Charisma and I were originally going to blog together for this, and my internet was rude. But she’s taken her pic and will be blogging it soon. Meanwhile, she said I could share it here. Be sure to check her blog for her credits soon!

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

Here, have a cupcake

So Charisma asked me to pose with her this morning so she could get in a last Candy Fair post using this adorable pose from Infiniti. But of course, she had to be a brat. Here, she said. Have a cupcake, she said. Then… SMOOSH. Cake and icing all over my face. Still, all things considered, for her this is pretty tame. :D

Anyway, I decided… I’m here. We look adorable. I’m gonna shoot it, too. So you get a rare second blog in one day from me!

Here, have a cupcake.

Our dresses and CJ’s hair are from Collabor88′s October round, which is so wonderfully spooky and perfect for the season.

Temptation

So, if you haven’t heard, Uber did a 50 Shades theme this round. I will readily admit I couldn’t read the book(s). I started the first one, got about 30 pages in and the writing just hurt my brain. It was just that bad. But if it’s your thing, cool. Admittedly, I despised Twilight (though I did finish the first book in that series), and since it was fan fic that inspired this book (still not sure I make that connection, btw), maybe it’s not shocking I hated this, too.

But even if you hated the book(s) like me, you’ll find Uber is full of sexy, sultry goodness. Seriously, like this bedroom set from Sway’s. I loved this in part because it’s so not what I’m used to from Sway’s, and it really works. The pile of clothes, the shirt on the lamp, the unmade bed… it all draws you in. The sultry hair is Exile, also for Uber. My stupidly sexy shoes are from L.Warwick for My SLink Obsession, but as you can see here they also include a version for Belleza’s Venus body.

Temptation

This beautiful skin is Belleza’s Mae for the Vintage & Cool Fair, which opens tomorrow. I particularly loved the black liner and red lips with my new silvery grey eyes from Buzzeri, which recently reopened in world.

Key to my heart

I’ll have more from Uber, along with so.many.other.events soon… ALL THE EVENTS.

<3

PS. The title of this blog post comes from CJ… she was there when I was shooting this scene and she kept accusing me of tempting her. To do what, only god knows.
