Since i started pinning Orcsy has been amazing in helping me out, with Fifty Linden Friday pinnings and random previews for events as well as sales and promotions, and i had to make a blog post thanking her so the other Sunday we finally got to take pic for it, using some of her poses. I did mess a lot with these on photoshop just to experiment, i wanted for the pictures to be as colourful and bright as she is.

Anyways here we are in our favourite rollerskating outfits (is not unusual to see us in matching outfits, or even seeing two elys running around yard sales or hunts) and also bring you not just pics but updates with a few new boards for upcoming events: The Mens Dept. opens today and is almost pinned down, i will finish it in a few hours when i get home, Skin Fair 2013 already as a pinboard and opens on the 15th, also on the 15th starts The Boutique and i promise previews soon, and before that we have COLLABOR88 on the 8th.

Tomorrow i´ll bring you all my usual pinning of Woeful Wednesday, and don´t forget to check all the other regular events still going strong and a bunch of new additions to my Spring Fever pinboard a mix of new releases and blog post by some amazing bloggers.

See you all later and i hope this week is treating you all well.

Fairies in the dust

Standard

Fairy Tales in 2012 is just ending and this is my last article on this amazing event that will certainly spark everyone´s imagination, as we travel to fairy land.

And like on the others before we talk about women´s roles in Fairy Tales and those same roles evolution, this time is for the fairies, the Fay people of old times, that used to be ugly little creatures, that would glamour (yes that was when the word was born) young men into their land thru their magic powers and offer them food so to keep them prisoners for years or centuries, they would also steal babies and do other devious things, they where powerful, to some point and incredibly feared, with kings and queens and constantly fooling the sight, and the many times the brain and heart of humans.

Slowly with time they stopped being feared and seen as cute little things nature associated and of the garden variety like if suddenly creatures who were as much feared as gods or storms became tiny birds for admiration, only later do we see them in Fairy Tales, even when these have very little Fairies at all in the fairy godfather role, where they are a poor substitute for the never existent mother, a powerless creature who basically offers advise, and who´s only role is to advance the story, and who´s only power is a move of a wand or a bag of dust.

Later on we see another twist of the fairy evolution, again thanks to Disney and mostly the image of Tinkerbell, they become miniatures, with butterfly wings and with a more infantilized look then before, or the middle aged clumsy woman who does her job only god knows how.

Oh i do miss the creatures of power of old times, instead of the more childish images of today, when Tales of the Fay where scary and of warning and very far from any form of Fairy Tales even older versions, where happy endings where rare and stories a lot more brutally honest.

So ignore my ramblings if you wish but don´t ignore this event, since there is a lot to choose from and not much time left to shop.

By the way earlier today before going out for a wonderful afternoon in the sun i wrote my first official Zombie Popcorn blog and for those interested you can find it here: I´m not a zombie but i do love popcorns.

… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

Standard

The title of today´s blog is part of a quote, by a comedian i admire a lot, Joanna Lumley, and the full quote goes like this:

I find it a great antidote… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

And today i bring you all of them, lipstick is the most important one today probably and part of a blogger challenge started by Cajsa Lilliehook,  so for it i picked this pretty skin from essences available at  CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, and one of the several lipstick options that come with it. I also bring you a lot of Hairspray in this new Clawtooth, hair made specially for COLLABOR88 .

Also from COLLABOR88 are these gorgeous shoes from Ingenue (available in several colours)  and the lovely dress by Schadenfreude ( available in a wide diversity of patterns, and sizes, including kid size).

And last  but not least mirrors, the thing about mirrors is, it´s fine when you hold up them to yourself, to admire your look, to look for faults in it, but with what i do have issues, is when people insist on holding up mirrors to others expecting to see their own reflection.

So i would love to see a lot less mirrors about at the end of the day,  a mirror only reflects what is there, not your wishes, and reflecting your wishes on others, steals them of their own reflection, making all those holding mirrors look foolish.

And this long rant is basically about feeling good about oneself, wearing what we love, what we choose, and not being held hostage to the mirrors other wave at us.
