At his head a grass-green turf, at his heels a stone.

Standard

Hello and i hope you all have a great monday, as you know i´ve been spending a lot of time with my Pinterest , and less doing my regular blogging but i´ve been having fun tho, and i think that sort of shows in my latest posts, and even if they are less frequent, the quality and dedication seems to be improving in my humble opinion.

Ely:
Shape: mine
Skin: Mynerva  –  Milena
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer – Eyelashes – Groomed

Dress: The Muses – Nimue
Necklace: Maxi Gossamer – Sparkly Rocker
Flowers: BOOM – Nature’s Crown

Pose by Picture This! Poses – Ophelia

Well anyways i do like to think i am somehow improving, don´t we all? Isin´t that the reason we go out everyday and work harder, giving a little bit more of ourselves each single day?

But that is not what this blog post is about, not even i know very well what it is about to be honest, i just had these pics planned in ages, and never got around to do them, mostly due to time limitations, or lack of some components for it.

And over last week i was incredibly nostalgic about one event i will miss terribly this year: Crazy Hair Hunt, probably the only hunt i do from start to end, and that apparently won´t have an edition this year, but anyways, i managed to satisfy my need for quirky and different  hair with a trip to EMO-tions, and found this model that seemed perfect for this idea i´ve had for a few months, i already had the pose, which are sometimes for me the basic foundation of any picture, i already had the flowers and the dress, and could finally do my portrait of Ophelia, a young noblewoman driven into madness by the violence of the men around her, mumbling truths in her madness.

I didn´t want to portray her as a young virginal girl as often she´s seem, but has a rightful noblewoman strong and faithful until her world came tumbling down around her, and a lot more relatable to modern women who juggle so much on their daily live.

So here she is a reminder that things can end, and lives can change and tragedy could hit us all at any given time, leaving us weak and ready to give up.

And again those who know me know this is a far from a melancholia filled post, but again my usually practical side that says don´t take things for granted, and learn from stories, isin´t that what cautionary tales are there for?

Well see you all laters with more news and i hope everyone has a  good start of the week.

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.

World Goth Fair part 2

Standard

Another lovely batch of Goth Fair goodies, as you know i´ve been blogging The World Goth Fair that goes from the 15th and lasts all the way to the 31st of May, and it will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation with the full support of the good people of World Goth Day. Also part of the World Goth Day SL celebrations is the ongoing WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st, you can find a list of all hunt participants here.

And today i bring you another batch of cool stores and some more gothy items, let´s start of with Avatar Bizarre that has this beautiful Marie Antoinette gown in black and also one of their now famous adorable wearable Cthulhus this one of mercy as fair exclusive items (the little cthulhu i´ll show later) in this case paired with one of The Little Bat, gatcha collars.

I also bring you today another gatcha price this one from ezura, the cute little lolita dress available in several colors at their gatcha paired with this gorgeous House of Rain necklace and earings set, a new shop that made it´s debut at the Hunt and fair. Now HoR does partial mesh jewelry which i am totally in love with, since i can easily resize it to fit my petite avatar and that you will be seeing around here a lot, on the backdrop of my second picture you can see the amazing photo that is the donation item for the Virtual Alchemy Photography, i´m also featuring another one of the muses dresses here, and i have a feeling you will see more around the blog.

Another thing you will se a lot are lassitude & ennui shoes, and why you may ask? Because i simply adore them, and not only do they rock the goth look, but the shop is also a surprise addition to the fair. Another shop in the fair but hard to blog about but very well worth to mention,  hard to blog because it sells sculpted creators packs, and worth to mention because of it´s quality, is Girl Not Included.

Also included in this post are a few more goodies from The Summer Beauty Festival, that is still running and will run until the  25th, so still time to shop for some makeup.

World Goth Fair part 1

Standard

Yes   The World Goth Fair is about to start, well we still have one more day to wait, it actually starts on the 15th and last all the way to the 31st of May, and it will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation with the full support of the good people of World Goth Day.

And i spent all weekend photographing previews of fair items, the theme of this year is Canivale and it can be easily seen thru the fair build that ranges from several booths that spread across two sims, Dark Eternity and Cursed (one a Mature and the other an Adult sim, linked here are the gatcha tents slurls), over the next two weeks i will try to bring you the old, the new and maybe something blue in between, those who know me, know goth is way far from my casual style, but this is sl and we all need to climb outside our comfort and usual zones, i do enjoy dressing up and ely is totally going goth for the rest of the month, this time for a good cause.

There will be no fixed teleport points during the fair and lm´s to every store booth will be accessible on the website with a direct SLurl there, there also a lot of gatchas, and i do love gatchas, those will be found either at the shop booth, and also at the two gatchas tents around the fair.

Today for you i bring you a couple of shops, first The Little Bat, The embrace yourself dress i´m wearing on the first pics will go 100%  to charity, There are also 3 variations of the Molly skin, that i will be wearing a lot over the next week made exclusively for the fair, and a few more items like dresses, and the pair of eyes you see me wearing also, their gatcha items are some lovely collars, you will see me wearing latter over the week. I had never heard of The Little Bat to be honest, but was amazingly surprised at the effort not only put into the fair but t the quality of the offers. Another shop i had never heard about is DemotiK and here on the 3rd pic you will see me wearing one of their charity items in my petite form, and they also have a lot more items exclusively for the Fair, one of them the shoes i am also wearing on first picture. Also added to the last picture is a freebie gift found at the Gothic Toys booth this adorable spooky shack in a jar.

Another shop i love is Pin me Down, a regular Zombie Popcorn brand, and that I have been blogging for sometime, I love their edgy and certainly different makeups, Pin me down is offering a whole new set of gorgeous makeup called Doomsday, you will see later, and oh god it´s so beautiful and it comes in so many colours, they also have some uber cute Lip markings, as seen on first pic, and a bunch of eyeliners on their gatcha machine, you will certainly see me wearing those a lot.

Last but not least the muses, the muses offers a wide selection of mesh mixed in with system layers, that will fit any avatar out the box, like the dress i´m wearing here on the second picture, and gives us an amazing selection in classic and classy goth wear,   or sexy depending on your desires, like you will see on my next posts about the fair.

To the mix i have been adding some makeups from The Summer Beauty Festival, that is still running and will run until the  25th, so still more than 10 days to shop there.

Remember that still going is also the The WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st, you can find a list of all hunt participants here and is also a part of World Goth Day SL Celebrations.
