Hellebore

Hellebore 1

I have a huge weakness for unusual skins so I was delighted when I found Nuuna Nitely‘s store. This particular skin was just L$1 from the ‘Freebies and Cheapies’ wall and includes eyes to complete a very striking look. I’m pretty sure I’ll be making a return visit soon as there are other items I neeeeeed!

The hand-jewelry from Vika is something I’ve had my eye on for a while and I was really happy to find a use for it – the bones sit over system hands and have a chain to the wrist and finger (a version without nails is also included in the pack). Personally I think the design is stunning and seriously underpriced at just L$99 – not that I’m gonna argue with a bargain!

This dramatic hair is a gift at the always-fabulous Zibska and comes with 5 colours in the pack. To finish it off I used a free hairbase from Amacci – this particular style has soft curls at the neck and temples which I just adore; their huge hairbase fatpacks are completely free and well worth picking up!

In an attempt to keep with the somewhat surreal theme I modded my shape more than usual: elongating the body, flattening the chest and rounding the belly a bit. I also wanted a pretty basic pose to keep the line nice and straight and to fit the emptiness of the overall mood. I couldn’t find exactly what I had in mind so I ventured into creating something myself from scratch using Animare – I’d only ever used it to tweak hand positions before but the HUD and online instructions are really user-friendly so I got what I needed without too many problems. Obviously, this is just a really simple pose that I made for my own use – but if anyone thinks it might come in handy for them too just give me a shout in-world and I’ll be more than happy to pass along a free copy.

Once I’d put this look together I knew where I had to go to take shots – the fantastic Cherry Manga‘s Insanity sim. It’s breathtaking, as always, and strikes a chord with me that I find difficult to put into words (so I’ll just use some of my old ones if you don’t mind). It’s desolate but beautiful and definitely thought-provoking, and I highly recommend a visit.

Finally, I have some exciting news (well, it’s exciting to me!): I’ve been added to Seraphim’s event blogging team and they’ve all been immensely welcoming and fab. I’ve got a lot to learn but I’m so happy to be a part of a project I’ve been a huge admirer of for such a long time! ❤ *dances*

Scroll down for full credits and I’ll be back soon!

Until then,

all best wishes ❤
