A bit dark and steamy…

BlogPost_99A

Hello Dear Fabulous Ones,

Do you feel a bit dark?  How about a bit Steamy?  Are you interested in helping out a great cause? Well, If you answered yes to any of these questions.. I have an event for you.

Check out:

A Clockwork Spiral 2013

what is it you might ask?  Well… This is a shopping and music event featuring steampunk/goth, dieselpunk/goth and dark Victoriana to help raise money for the National Kidney Foundation

This runs from September 18-22, 2013.  One thing to note –>> This event is being held on an ADULT rated sim, though as I was walking through it, I couldn’t really see anything that would be above Moderate.. but is always good to note such things….

After I picked up all the stuff to make myself look steamy, I ran over to New Babbage to snap a picture for you all…. Huge thanks to Devin Vaughn who was kind enough to point me in a good direction to take this picture in a Steampunk environment.

Leading A Dangerous Beauty

DBL1

Last week Kyle sent me an IM to let me know about this stunning new group gift from Dressed by Lexi.  He knew I’d be all over showing this beautiful gown, and he was right!  I asked him if he would accompany me in the photos if I promised not to dance on his toes and as per usual ‘Kyle Style’ he arrived all spiffed up  in a tuxedo, that is not only free, but very dashing too.  The James Tuxedo can be found at Jazzitude hidden in the A Walk To Remember Hunt icon.

The latest group gift from Dressed by Lexi is the stunningly elegant Dangerous Beauty Gown in the shade of midnight.  It also comes with a pillbox hat/mini veil, not shown because I also wanted to share with you these sparkling Nightfall Orchid Eyes that are a free gift at Poetic Colors.  The Dangerous Beauty Necklace decorating my neck can be found right beside the group  gift at Dressed by Lexi, sold in a set with face jewels, and earrings for 99L.

The “Shall We Dance” pose used in these photos is priced at 5L in the Adorkable clearance section up in the loft.

DBL2Life is a dance.  Sometimes you lead and sometimes you follow.”

Gothmas by Gaslight

Dark Water Designs - Gothic by Gaslight Tuxedo, DemotiK - Gothic PennyLoafer, InSpired Designs  - Gent's Cane

I found four holiday ensembles on the Gothmas by Gaslight Hunt that will make your Gothmas (or which ever holiday you celebrate) a tad more special. I’ll start off with the Gothic by Gaslight Tuxedo from Dark Water Designs. My footwear for this tux is the Gothic PennyLoafers from DemotiK . I accented the look with the Gent’s Cane from InSpired Designs.

My next look comes from Indigo Oddities. The Thanatos Outfit also includes shoes, a top hat, a monocle,  and a cane.

Indigo Oddities - Thanatos

Avatar Bizarre also has a gift in the hunt. The Amaranthus Suit comes with boots and gloves.

Avatar Bizarre - Amaranthus  Suit

finally, the Cranberry and Pine Gothic Christmas Outfit is the hunt prize at Lyrieal’s . Everyone will know it’s Gothmas when you walk into the room in this outfit. The boots are accented with holly.

Merry Gothmas to all, and to all a good night!
