Genre: Rebel Yell

Previously posted @ Prim Dolls.

This is a bit of a departure from my usual look.

Looking for Trouble

The theme for Genre this month is Sons of Genre, and Bikers have taken over. This is the biggest break from my style that I’ve ever done; the Apocalypse and Dark Magic both brought out the power of Dark Deo, but I still managed something clean cut and even a little sweet or Medieval at times. This time… there is no sweet left. There is no cute, no giggle, not even the shine of gossamer wings outside of the flash of rainbow on my Noctis biker goggles. Available alone or combined with a wide variety of scary helmets (we’ll see if I can work any of THEM into a look!) the rainbow lenses are only one of the five options, and the goggle section itself has three metal designs. The goggles are also editable, which means if you want to fit the strap to a finicky bald head, like I did, it’s totally easy.

My spikes and eyeshadow (the latter a little concealed, I’ll admit!) are both from The Stringer Mausoleum, whose style seems oddly perfect for this intersection of grimy reality and dangerous fantasy. The spiky head is also editable so I could make sure the flat part of each spike fit nicely to my skull, and the effect is striking – if distinctly non-Deoish. There are five other colors besides this metallic blue, for all of your “HEADPETTERS BEWARE!” needs. And finally, tucked over my Rosal corset neck (not available at Genre) is a thick chain necklace from Painfully Divine, which looks both divine and somewhat painful! I love how heavy it is, each link easily as wide as two fingers, and the curve around the neck is perfect – especially over a particularly thin neck. It’s available in three dark and heavy colors, but I’d love to also see it shined up and in even more shades – it walks a line between decorative and substantial that I find quite appealing.

Feh!

Continuing the theme of “not your average Deo,” even my wings have been traded in by the cutest bit of my ensemble – this backpack from Distorted Dreams. I tremble to call it cute – I am a scary biker chick who eats glass for breakfast! – but it really is adorable, and would work as well on the back of a schoolgirl as it does as the wings of a terrifying creature like myself! It is also editable – I’m sensing a theme here! – which means the sometimes irritating shoulder pieces can be changed to fit an outfit or a pose; a blessing for backpacks! My final accessory in an outfit which seems to be more accessory than outfit is a pair of terrifying skull-wing rings from Eclectica. There are two color sets available, one the darker rough-and-tumble shades and the other slightly brighter, as if maybe there could be a happy ending once the enemies are put in the ground – or at least a hardcore drive off a cliff! The black outline on them gives an almost comic-book feel, the edges sharp enough to cut.

All of my accessories combine to support the jeans-and-chaps and tank top combo from The Annex. I’m used to seeing flowing dresses and ruffles from them, so this brief and somewhat hardcore offering is eye opening – and one of the reasons why Genre can be such fun. The tank is embellished with a loosely laced opening in the front and the sizes would fit a whole range of avatars on Second Life. The Jeans and chaps are amazing, and one of my favorite bits of clothing available at this event. The hip fit is very low, which isn’t even close to my usual style, but which works with this outfit, and the added layer of leather over the legs and bucked around the waist draws a lot of attention to some of my nicer features while still seeming realistic. The added large buckles down the sides, and the stud detailing of the belt, makes this seem like something a Scary Momma would wear when out on a ride – though I’ll admit the white bodystocking from Reasonable Desires and all of the corsetry from Rosal (neither available at Genre) is a tad less realistic. Although this is a lot less skin than I often show, it feels like it’s a lot more due to what skin is shown off and how – I think I pulled off dangerously sexy pretty well, even if I do say so myself!

Genre: Reversal of Fortune

Previously posted @ Prim Dolls.

I am not only decked out in a bunch of amazing Genre exclusives, but I also built a fun set in the moonlight from the same source; the Dark Arts has been fertile for pushing my style in directions it doesn’t often go and this time I did a cool teal look for an icy fortune teller, in contrast to the fiery fanatic of my first look. I also went significantly sleeker and more modern, wanting a high contrast with my prior appearance.

Neither Eyes to See

My outfit is actually a combination of items from two stores – a mini-dress turned shirt from Vengeful Threads, and a pair of leggings from Sn@tch that match so perfectly that they seem made for each other. Both of them are textured with rich colors – a deep black with pale gray highlights, and a wonderfully rich teal that fades in and out of the blackness it is placed upon. The teal seems almost enameled, with hints of the black base beneath and some lovely light edges around the flames of the halter top. The Vengeful Threads halter top itself is quite sexy, with the teardrop cutout and low slung sides holding up a spiked waistband. I love the shift from dominant teal to dominant black, with the veves glowing magically out of the darkness of the skirt. This same effect is echoed on the leggings from Sn@tch – a black background with a pattern of inverted crosses glowing out of it. The effect is nearly a smooth one until the ankles, when the fabric buckles naturally and forms a perfect base for either the standard Second Life foot or the SLink feet I used here. The two together work wonderfully together and make a cohesive look that forms the basis for a truly impressive selection of accessories.

Walking Blind

The first set of accessories all come from one store – Zanzibar creationZ – and work together wonderfully. Firstly the circlet with the soft sea green sliver of moon is one of a variety of crowns with a similar design but different seals on the gray metal “shadow”, each representing a different demon from the Ars Goetia. All of the colors come with a different sigil and is named for the demon represented by that sigil – so take care whom you place upon your brow! They come in packs of two – for example, my Leraje circlet also comes with Amon in red. Also from ZcZ is the rings in blackened metal on my fingers – worked in the shapes of runes from Norse and Germanic cultures. Manaz, Uruz, Othilo, Dagaz, and Sowilo make up both hands, placed on various fingers with Sowilo tucked before the second knuckle. They’re fit for the SLink Relaxed hand but each ring is editable independently to fit them to any hand of your choice. They are also resizable, which means that even on my unusually sized girl paw it was a matter of stretching them a little to make them fit. At the same time, I added the symbolic black and white manicure and pedicure from ZcZ, including a variety of other symbols – including the anhk one I’m using. I love them for their simplicity, and for symbols with directions there are options for coloring the nails appropriately.

Lambent Glow

ZcZ set a high bar for accessories, but luckily the rest of my accessories clear it handily! Over my eyes is an amazing mask and horns from BluPrintz with lovely dangling crystals. It’s color change between several options – I’m showing bone horns with a black mask and yellow jewels, but there are tons of other options for other looks. I found the fit to be easy and there are even small bands which hook over the ears for verisimilitude. I paired it with the lipstick from Sn@tch – also featured above for leggings – a dull color with simple sheen which is a perfect match for the brighter, gleaming eyeshadows you can pick up with it. The final touch to my whole look is this amazing, color change via HUD necklace from LOULOU&CO, which comes in eye and gem styles. I chose the eye, of course, since I even seers need some way to see! It fits perfectly into the keyhole of my Vengeful Threads dress, and the petals and beads can all be shifted to different colors and patterns. It’s a creepy and yet lovely accessory that I think all of the blind seers will be selecting from now on!

Walking into my Fortune

The backdrop I build is in the forests of Lasting City, a lovely sim designed and created by my dear friend Charlie. I shamelessly took over a grove, filling it first with the fountain and stone surround from Frogstar, which also include the curving stone frame and the hanging glow stones. I love the use of materials on this in particular – the stone looks slightly damp in the moonlight, catching the light sharply in contrast with the softer and duller ground. In the center I placed an enlarged crystal ball from Noctis – the one with the skeletal hands holding the stone in place. It also moves as you look into it – an eerie effect even in a much smaller globe. Arranged around the fountain are a set of candles in cross bases from Artisan Fantasy, seven total candle colors available. The wood is set to gleam glossily and the candles themselves give off a soft, golden glow. And finally, tucked off to the side and captured above in the shot that took in my non-Genre shoes is a wonderfully programmed Tarot Deck from Anachron which uses the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck that passed into public domain. There are a bunch of spreads available, and more astonishingly the deck is set to give a short description of the card, with additional notes if it’s reversed. It’s an amazing set for Tarot Readings in Second Life, and I can’t recommend it enough!

Witching Genre

Previously posted @ Another World.

This is a great week to shop if you like all things dark.  Between this week’s The Witching Hour and this month’s Genre, you’ll be all set.  The theme for Genre is “The Dark Arts.”

I absolutely love this snake necklace from Goth1c0.  It’s in their gacha at The Witching Hour.  The necklaces are rares and there are gorgeous snake bracelets to grab as well.  You can preview everything here.

Witching

This gorgeous dress is by Squishy Fluff for Genre.  I just love the St. Peter’s crosses and the pentacle print.  The darkness inspired me to return to Bentham Forest for a visit.  It’s just as gorgeously dark as ever.

Welcome to my Playground

Genre‘s theme is the Dark Arts this round, and the inspiration covers a lot of ground – from traditional practices of Tarot and Demonology to popular fiction. It also gave me a chance to get in touch with shadow!Deo, who lurks in the places least seen and comes out… well, best to leave those considerations unspoken. My face is made up of a combination of things; layered underneath is the base tattoo from Spyralle, meant to go with a variety of forehead decorations – foreheads were popular this month! It’s a webwork design you’ll see more of in future posts, but I liked the effect of the lacy edges under my mask, an incredible creation from Eclectica. It’s formed and textured like leather, ridged and edged very realistically with simple, smooth curling horns coming from the temples. I love the texturing on this in particular, from the gleam of the eyes to how each section captures the light. It looks sharp and wild, yet still retains it’s mask-like quality, which I really appreciate. My jewelry is also from Eclectica, but isn’t a release at Genre, and after this round of Genre is over, the mask will join the rest of Eclectica‘s creations at her store.

Baphomet is my Pal

My dress is from Wimey, and manages to somehow be both adorable and menacing – a Wimey special, in my experience. I am a sucker for outfits with snakes on them, and this one does not disappoint – with a python lovingly hugging waist and breast both. The snake part is textured with a dappled metallic effect, like beaten metal, while the corset top and skirt both have the heavy, thick quality of leather. I particularly like the embossed pattern on the bodice and how the bottom v of the bodice is more heavily creased, as if the wearer has sat a lot in it. The effect is a wearable garment, even though it’s all leather. I added on some flash nails from Vengeful Threads, a field of red trees on a black background – certainly appropriate for the overall look and very slick. My shoes, in contrast, look like they were decoupaged from old Tarot cards – a fun and misty effect from Sense-able Fashions. The shoe shape itself is simple, a perfect base for the overlaying of brightly colored cards to really be shown at their best.

Step on Nails

The final touch to my demonic fashion is a curse from BluPrintz – swirling flames which can be connected by a series of particles to form stars of different numbers of points – from three to twelve. The options for colors are immense – there is a way to change both colors of the flames as well as the color of the links; I went with a dull, bloody red for the star, and left the points as bright orange and red flames. In addition to flames swirling behind, there is a second set included which swirls around the body perpendicular to it – rather like the magical effects of anime, or what happened last week when I summoned that… oh, well… nevermind. It’s not important.It’s definitely critical to make it to Genre before …whatever happened last week catches up with us, though – remember, salt and circles, and try to make sure what you summon isn’t on the same side of the barrier as you are.

Genre: Surprise Party

Previously posted @ Prim Dolls.

Hips Don't Lie

I’m squeezing in one last Genre post – this time doing my best to show off some of the decorative items which are available through the end of today. My outfit – this confection of balloons somehow attached to my body, is from DeviousMind and is a great deal of fun! It comes with a ton of appliers for different bodies – L.inc, Belleza Venus, and Lolas Tango – some textured pieces to cover the critical pieces, and different versions of the bustle as well as particle ribbons for the hand which kick in when one moves. It’s enormous fun for a burlesque outfit or similar style event, which is what inspired me to pull out the Bliensen + MaiTai party cake, which is set up for a dancer hopping out of it and performing for the crowd! It comes with two hiding locations, plus several “pop out of the cake” events (singing, clapping), and several more dances. It also delivers accessories for each appropriate step, like a microphone for singing to the crowd, and even a cake top hat! I’m definitely keeping this in my inventory for someone’s surprise party, or even as a club crowd pleaser.

Catching the Last Rays of Light

Once I got started, I couldn’t help but fill in the rest of the room. First I pulled out banners and star lights from Spyralle, all of them brightly decorated with Spyralle‘s signature bright patterns. They are editable, with the banners flexi on large boxes which means they can be resized to fit different areas of the house and made either fullbright or not. I absolutely adore the colors and brightness they bring to the party! In one corner I set up a table with party accessories in red and green from Bauwerk. This is one of my first times interacting with their creations, and they really are lovely. The accessories can all be mixed and matched as you wish, and I love the random combination of the cups and letters spelling out “Happy Birthday.”

Dinner is Awesome

This set could also work well for Christmas, being the proper hues, and it’s all copy-ok, meaning you can fill a wall with chairs to park the pizza on, like I did. The pizza is from Lost Junction, and is nicely textured. It includes full pies and single pieces on plates, which I was able to set down here and there as if this were a snapshot in the middle of a party. They also put out a gift of pizza slice nails for everyone who nibbles when nervous! And finally, tucked off to one side I placed a sideboard from Frogstar, all set up for sending invitations and wrapping gifts. This would be a charming addition to any living room, indicating one is the type of householder who is always at the ready – I particularly liked the touch of blackboard squares to write the contents of drawers on, and may end up stealing that idea for offline drawers.

Ready for any Party

Upstairs, I set up the perfect little nest for a little girl. Hanging overhead is a lovely runner of cloth from Paper Moon, available with and without tassels and including simple wooden beams for hanging from ceilings. Under it I placed this gorgeous trundle bed from Noctis, it’s blankets and pillows texture-change between four colors which can be mixed and matched. It’s also available with the trundle pulled out or pushed in, and there’s a lovely set of accessories to be fitted on top and into the built-in shelving. This is perfect for a guest room, or even the bed in a loft. Finally, tucked between the bed and the window I put a lovely children’s tea set from Distorted Dreams, the tablecloth a lovely mix of blues. The tea set can come either attached or not, and there is an additional tea cup for drinking as one feeds ones teddy bears the best imaginary tea! There’s less than twenty-four hours left before the Genre Celebration ends, but I hope you have a chance to swing by and pick up what catches your eyes – be it the perfect party outfit, or some fun furniture for entertaining.

Genre: It’s Like Magic

Previously posted @ Prim Dolls.

Entirely Too Much Glee

Genre’s theme is celebration, and it definitely offers up a lot to celebrate about! My fun party dress, with layers of skirt I particularly appreciate, is from Anachron and comes in a wide variety of colors and decorative additions. I love the multiple colors woven into the skirts, the delicate rope belt, and the way Anachron used materials to add texture into some of the levels – you can see it along the rim of the green skirt, catching the light beautifully. It moves very well, folding up in soft curves when my leg goes up and adapting well to wider stances that can sometimes bring heartache to skirt wearers. I also like that the bodice line isn’t straight  the angles up to either side set this apart from many other sleeveless gowns of a similar silhouette, as does the symbols woven into the center panel and flanked by darker bands textured very much like leather. I’m also wearing a very sweet, golden ring from Oddfish Studios on my right hand – I didn’t get the best shot of it, but it’s a lovely bit of glitter that has an accompanying pose for couples, letting them gaze lovingly into each others eyes. I love the shape of the ring, scroll edges supporting a single stone and with the words “Love that moves the Sun and other stars” along the band. It’s absolutely lovely.

Rocky Landing

My final bit from Genre for this look is my top hat from BluPrintz and the HUD which comes with it is so incredibly detailed it blows me away! It lets you tint every part of the hat separately into any color you want – yes, any color; all of them. It has a veil (not shown) and comes in clean and tattered versions. If you want a top hat, this is the hat to buy! The shape is lovely as well, with a tapered edge and the cutest, thinnest brim. I am beyond thrilled with it and how I was able to easily fit it to my hair – something not always easy with hats! My final note is about my adorable shoes from The Little Bat, the freebie that accompanies today’s look. They were a midnight mania, which has now been shifted out for a cute platform in orange, and she has new midnight manias regularly, often including some very nice shoes – one of the harder things to find for freebie hunters. Definitely swing by and check out what’s on offer – and maybe pick up an outfit or two while you’re there!

Glissando

This month’s Genre is Celebratory, a Third Anniversary Party filled with shine and glamor and edged on all sides with a pretty ribbon of silly. As events go, it’s one of the longer ones and inspires a cavalcade of unusual clothing and accessories. That sheer variety is on display all over this month’s event – clothing crossing several ages, accessories for many different types of avatars, and some wonderful celebratory items to decorate homes and accentuate parties. Nowhere is this more obvious than this dress from Blue Blood, a fluffy confection that combines an elegant Mandarin collar with puffed lantern sleeves and bodice reminiscent of Fifties’ cocktail dresses. It transitions smoothly into the wide, ruffled skirt, and the combination of the catch along the collar and the dividing line down the center of the dress adds interest. It comes with a fatpack of colors divided into light and dark, twelve options in all, and each of them combine two tones of color – a brighter, shiny half, and a slightly dull, leatheresque half. Clever use of materials adds to the sense of texture and shine on the dress, making the tentacles seem embossed into the surface as well as making each half seem like a different type of surface. In addition to my eternal favorite, tentacles, there is also a skyline version of the dress which you can see me wearing in my DDR post.

Reverse Modulation

Goth1c0 also blessed us with colorful fatpacks, offering up a wide variety of textures on these charming zippered heels with the platform base. Unlike a lot of fatpacks, where the different textures are color variations on a theme, these boots include this fun, blue embossed pattern, animal print, a fun spiderweb, and even some skulls and crossed bones – ten options in all – and four metal colors. The shapes of the openings are wonderfully fun, each zipper hanging free off to the side. I love the silver detailing along the base and the pipe-shaped heel with it’s cute, rounded center. One of the things I love about the SLink high feet is that they offer up options for cut-out, boot style heels that show off the smooth foot beneath. The style of shoe also let me show off my fantastic nails to good effect – another Genre offering, this time from Sense-able Fashion. I chose one of the puzzle nails, an interlocking pattern of blues which seemed made for this overall look. There are two other sets, all of them brightly colored and fun, a valuable way to bring your celebrations all the way to your fingertips. And just in case you want to celebrate down to your marrow, The Stringer Mausoleum made an amazing set of starburst eyes in a variety of shades – each one eerie and pale, and yet somehow compelling. There is a wearable demo in gray in addition to the purchasable colors, and each comes with such incredible options – petite eyes, mesh eyes, legacy eyes, and a system layer – that even the pickiest eyeophile would be pleased.
