It´s tragic

Standard

A lot happens today, and you guys know i like doing a blog post every now and then, specially when there is a new event in town, Which is the case of Oneword that should be now open.

 

So every edition of this event is themed by one word, the first edition is Tragedy, and i fell in love with this new MINA hair for it.

But Oneword is not the only event starting today, FaMESHed is back with a new edition like clockwork every month, and it´s where i bought this lovely structured dress from Mutresse, with plenty of colour options, and which i tinted slightly darker for a more noir feel NS Qa pwerfwct fro the new released shoes from Hucci.

Also since it´s Carnaval time and Madi Grass and even tho i don´t personally do hunts in SL but i was over at Papermoon the last shop on the list of 104 that take part in this Spring edition of The Twisted Hunt, one of the eldest and best know hunts in SL, and i wanted a picture themed for the holiday and for that used Sohma´s pretty setup with her hunt gift.

Have fun today guys, plenty to do on the grid for those who celebrate the world wide holidays like me and get to enjoy some extra free time or a long weekend.

See you all soon with more news and events.

Darkness is coming

Standard

Slowly falling over us all as the A new Twisted Hunt arrives, starting tomorrow, also starting tomorrow is another hunt, The Summer Harvest Hunt, which i will bring you guys soon over at the The Ego Co. blog.

But let´s start with The Twisted Hunt, one of my favourites, always with a dark theme, always with an amazing list of creators, some more well known others sorta of new, here i bring you guys a small preview from it, this gorgeous mesh necklace by House of Rain, that you might remember from The Goth Fair, and occasional blogs, i love mesh jewelry, and i love the detail it brings, also i like it even more when it´s copy and mod, the best thing for any mesh jewelry, that ended all scaling problems of small prims, allowing you to resize it and fit it to perfection when unrigged, like this beautiful necklace, that shows, a barren tree under a jeweled moon.

I missed doing a more dark look, and for this one, i picked a random skin from Glam Affair, an older one from a long lost Dressing Room, and added something new to the look, one of Nomine´s first mesh releases, in this lovely Shapirre tone, perfect for the mood of another gorgeous Garden of Dreams scene.

The dress has two versions, one of them short and another long, with cut out sides and perfect to show of your back.

So guys, prepare yourselves for an amazing weekend and month hunting, don´t we all love a good hunt? I´ll be seeing you all soon with more hunt goodies, have a wonderful weekend.

Coming soon…

Standard

This month has been so busy, not just with events in sl but also with new shops sending me blogger packs that I have and will continue to show of, those shops being: Geometry, {bilo}, CoLLisions, 22769 and Dare Designs, this has helped me a lot in blogging since not only do I have more to play with in my pictures, but I also have more variety, and most of it already associated with amazing events I already cover.

The Blogrun of feeds also slowly grows with more entries as I apply the blog to them, and spend more time checking feeds myself.

I keep trying to cover as many events as possible including some hunts like i did this month to The Twisted Hunt, The Steam Hunt and last week and over the next The Home and Garden Market Hunt. I do try and keep up with hunts as best as possible, but as you see it is impossible to covert only 1% of all the ones in the grid.

I´ve been also trying to cover all the pictures in the Luna Jubilee´s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, and probably doing a few more in the future.

Next month I plan to keep covering my favourite monthly events like COLLABOR88, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Blue, The Gallery Gift Shop, Flux and the new My Attic. But I do have news as it comes to major events upcoming.

First I will start with World Goth Day on the 22nd of May that is having an officially sanctioned event in SL The World Goth Fair 2012 and will also include a hunt The WGD Nightstalker Hunt 2012, I was lucky to be invited by my good friend Axi to be an official blogger for the Fair with other amazing bloggers as: Shadowed Darkfury from SL Freebie Hunters, Sonya Marmurek  from Astalianda and  Rudhmellowen Laguna from Seraphim.

Second i´ve also been accepted as a blogger for Fantasy Faire.

And I am so excited for it, I love doing Fantasy pictures, and I love experimenting and already know how amazing the designers assigned to me are, so I know for sure I will have good things to blog, but it´s a surprise.

Another event I´m anticipating is Keep Calm and Keep Shopping! a smaller and new event I know, but looking extremely promising.

These are a few of the events i can remember atm, for the next few months I´m sure more will come, and i will do my best to keep myself on top of them. Remember people to hit me with news or suggestions, either here or on plurk/twitter.

The Power of Guardians

Standard

Another day and a few more things from the The Twisted Hunt This time we speak about guardians and their power, guardians not only to locations but also too feelings.

We are each our own guardian, putting up walls that protects us hoping those wall won´t end up isolating us, it´s sometimes a thin balance between those.

We did not choose to be the guardians of the gate, but there is no one else.

Twisted

One of the hardest hunts on the grid, and one I really wanted to blog, but since is so hard I have not yet managed to grab many things, but I will try slowly to blog as much of it as possible, so here I present you a little bit of   The Twisted Hunt Spring 2012.

A Blog about Blogging :O

Standard

I´m pretty new at blogging, so I thought I should do at least one post on how the blog works, affiliations or lack of them, that sort of stuff.

Well I blog whatever I can and have available time for basically, I try to give time to special events in SL, like I have these past few months with, Back to Black, Festival of Sin, EPOCH Legend, Mix+Mesh, March Mesh Madness, and also the regular monthly or weekly events like, COLLABOR88 Flux, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Room Blue, Lazy Sundays and a few more others.

I also try on top of that to add a few hunts to the list, like I did with Gothmas by Gaslight Hunt, and soon The Twisted and Steam Hunts, as soon has I have the available time. This of course is not easy there are always so many events I can cover and there is also so many available lindens to spend, and that brings us to my next point.

99% of the items I review, use on photographs come out of my pocket, meaning I rush to the events (usually on Sundays mornings, when most US folks are still asleep) and spend my lindens on things I really like or would look good in pictures, so I can end up with a few things in my inventory that won´t be blogged right away, but will sit there waiting for the right opportunity to come out in the future.

I do get a few Blogger packs, I don´t aproach merchants and ask for things I will volunteer when they offer or ask about blogger on Plurk if I like the shop and feel I can actually blog their things and fit them into my posts, one of the few shops that sends me blogger review packs and is amazingly generous with those is CoLLisions, I will not claim to mark all blogger preview items, I would rather focus on the events they are a part of, but I am very upfront about it and will address them at least every now and them here, I will also never ever blog something I don´t like, or that does not fit in with the overall look.

Now another point here Gifts, I get some gifts from creators sometimes, from those I know well, most of them I met in SLUniverse where I am a frequent poster, usually I saw them progress their work and tested demos for them helping if needed with fitting tips, but mostly they are for me talented friends, and I will not mark their items as gifts I would never ever also never blog anything I would not like myself or didn´t fit the style again, i´m just very lucky to know these people, and share their creations.

Regular shops I post about, you will find quite a few, my elikatira and Mynerva addiction is legendary how much I have fun with M.O.C.K. Cosmetics is also apparent (and I´m lucky to know Mockie and see the dinamic in her group which is one of the few payed ones I do belong too), .( bewildebeest ) and PixelDolls both now closet, and {bilo} reopening soon, but I also love to try new things, always inside my own comfort zones.

Now another issue is comfort zones, well about that, I don´t really do sexy or underwear pics, I´m a silly prude about that for some reason, I do try to step out of it tho, but never anything that would make me uncomfortable.

At the end of the day I´m just having a lot of fun taking pics and running around teh grid experimenting new things, and trying not to take myself too seriously, hopefully I learn something while doing it, I´m sure i will make mistakes and screw up sometimes, let´s just hope it doesn´t happen that often.

As for style well check my blog I love experimenting :D and mostly having fun.
