Wrapping Up the Charity Event DEbRA - Featuring !Lyrical B!zarre Templates, ~ghee, Sabra Style, DE Boutique, October's 4Seasons and Dulce Secrets

I was sure I was done with Halloween but with this terrific hat from Kylie Sabra at Sabra Style sharing her version of a Good Witch Galinda's hat, I had to don it for my photos last night. I've really just had a blast with all of your fun little things, all that you've created from cyborg eyes to creepy spiders to good witch's hats. Fun!
I have the second to the last item on today that I want to share from the week long DEbRA event. This dress from Lyrical B!zarre Templates supports the ongoing research and needs of the The Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Associate of America. You can read more about it and donate directly to the cause if you visit debra.org and hopefully you will drop by the event in world before it closes its doors tonight.
DE Boutique has new shoes, a selection of them including the pair seen here. I love the name of them simply because the name is long and complicated, Kirazissimo. It sounds like a friend's pet name, like Kira and bellissimo smushed together for the fun of it. For whatever reason, it doesn't change the fact that they're heels designed with a closed toe, simple and chic in several colors.

Dulce Secrets created a set of mesh eyes recently for one of the events and when I entered the word 'purple' into my trusty dusty help me make some order out of my inventory search button, I found them! So this is a rare time you see me not wearing the eyes that are traditionally in just about every style I create.

~ghee has some cramazing smash hot new tights they created for the recent AW14 fashion release and I've found so many uses for them. I got all 12 colors so I could mix and match and one was a deep purple suited excellently to add warmth to my look. Sexy. Practical. Super chic. Life is good.

Sharing Halloween With One of Carrie's Lingerie Model/Assistants -- Featuring Carrie's Lingerie, Chop Zuey and Truth

I dropped by Carrie's Lingerie, late last night in my world. Every now and then I have an insomniac's night. Thank heavens it never got as bad as "The Narrator" in Fight Club or Trevor Resnik from The Machinist. When I have those odd hours, I'm grateful for the people who live in other time zones around the world. I get a brief but fun chance to catch up in their worlds while mine is a bit topsy turvy. When I visited, I asked the Model/Assistant on duty if she'd pose in one of the photos I took. She looked so spooktacular, I just wanted to absorb the fun of it and play. That's one reason I love Halloween. It's primarily fun in our day and age (and yes I know it came from times long past that were not quite so sure the day 'fun') and a good reason to remind myself not to take this life or any too seriously. Sometimes we need to be silly and dress like a pumpkin or dance with a grape vine.
Starla aka starla.connor wore Carrie's full avi Spider Lady that included the awesome dark skin called Dark Fantasy. I was all in red and gold wearing Sami, the Group Gift for the VIP members of her store. I also had on one of the brand new texture change sets from Chop Zuey that were released last weekend. I love how all of the pieces she created, from short playful day dresses to long formal evening wear, the hats and bows, jewelry and everything could mix and match even as she honored one of the most colorful artists Romero Britto, a contemporary Modern/Pop artist that certainly inspired Ms. Belle to colorful delights in his honor! And I would be remiss if I did not comment on the hair by Truth. I've used some of October's 4Seasons darker tones more recently and I love the multiple shades of black that Truth created. They have that touch of realism.
I believe this is my final Halloween blog, but who knows. If it is or if it isn't, I hope you find a way to celebrate a spirited end of this month as we all look ahead to the wonderfully crazy holiday months ahead. Hang on to your hats. It's going to be a wild ride!!

Scaryn All Of You, Even Scaryn Me! -- Featuring Tresor Couture, October's 4Seasons and blackLiquid

Another Scaryn styling comes straight out of the mind of KarenSunshine, creator, designer and owner of Tresor Couture. I took this awesomely fun outfit over to the best Haunted House on the grid up at Carrie's Lingerie VIP, and took some photographs. Oh how fun.
I love playing dress up. Elvira, but suddenly the Country Song began playing in my head. Oh make it stop. Make it stop! LOL blackLiquid made some great blood red nails for appliers and October's 4Seasons has a Seduction Gloss out called Red Vines. All worked well together to make this spooktacular look for today's notes and blog.
Hope you're having fun with all the designers fun and frolicsome side as Halloween draws nigh - and I'm going to change my name from Scaryn to something very Holidays-y so be on the look out this weekend for something sweet as Christmas on your friends list to pop up!

Designer Showcase Begins Once More - November -- Featuring 1 Hundred and Loordes of London, Both Designers at Designer Showcase

1 Hundred and Loordes of London both have new items out for Designer Showcase November. The new really sexy pale lilac lingerie I'm wearing comes from 1 Hundred.
Called a Diva Bodysuit, it's alluring for all the right reasons and there are many color choices so you're sure to find the one that suits you best. Paired with it, a pair of wedges from Loordes of London, the pairs are # (Numbered) and this pair is #7.
I've got one of the new Lily Skin Tone (Angelina) skins on and because the Lily tone can be Spring or Autumn, it was perfect to go with this delicate color pairing and the casual side updo from Analog Dog.

Moody Days and Perfect Makeup -- Featuring October's 4Seasons, Chop Zuey, Boudoir and Tresor Couture

It's been a long time since something or someone made me cry 'online'. I forgot how it felt. We share our hearts with various people for many different reasons. We extend trust slowly, and then we hope that we're going to survive that moment, and the next. Of course we do survive, and maybe as models, with pixelated mascara and eyeliner, our makeup never runs, but I think the tears fall down somewhere in our hearts. I question myself, my ability to relate to others, and my connections here in this virtual world after days like today. And I'm so glad that not too many days like today exist in my world.
I often tell people that life is too short to get upset or stay upset. I know this more because of the health scares I've had and because I live with kidney disease. I don't expect special treatment. I would really dislike that. I'm already the china doll that everyone's afraid to touch in my world off line. To live that online too, well I just couldn't. So I'm here, in a beautiful gown, hair by one of my favorite designers, alone on the floor of a grand ballroom and realizing that sometimes, it's very sad to be alone, and other times, it's just what I need. I don't know about this moment right now. I don't often write 'moody' notes. It's just hitting me harder than it should, maybe because I haven't let the door open for long in a long time and haven't had so many 'moody' moments.
I'm grateful to the designers who support me, friends I've made in this business, places I've gotten to go and events in which I've participated. I love the lady behind the name Tresor Couture. She does a lot for the world around her and I treasure people like that. Yes, Tresor - treasure. It fits. I wouldn't be the same person if I didn't have Ms. Oooh October in my life and the chance to wear her skins exclusively is a privilege. I can't imagine Second Life without Chop Zuey and Boudoir and all of the high class designers who've been here, creating, designing, and letting me taste a little nibble from their world. It helps me disappear for a little while, into another world, and it doesn't hurt, not for a little while, anyway.
