We're Gonna Ride The Race Cars...

...We're gonna dance on fire
We're the girls of Le Disko
Supersonic overdrive...

So recently I had the opportunity to meet and begin working with one of Second Life's awesome designers, DJ A.F.I. who is the creative genius behind the AFI Designs clothing brand.  Known far and wide for her stunning haute couture fashions, she has decided to veer slightly from the high fashion path and enter the darkness!  So naturally I totally wanted to jump on board with that...we need more dark designers in sl!  I can't even tell you how excited I am to see what kind of new lovelies she comes up with...AFI Designs is one to watch folks!  Now, since she's decided to go in a new fashion direction that also warrants a new store which is being built right this minute.  Until it's complete you have to get your fashion fix on the Marketplace and the link for AFI Designs is here.  If you're one of those who prefer shopping in-world just give it a little time and your patience will be rewarded!  

The first of many future AFI Designs beauties is shown here, a stunning little dress called Damaged.  It features cut-out holes throughout the skirt giving a teasing little peekaboo look, showing off plenty of skin while still keeping those important areas covered.  It comes in the standard 5 mesh sizes and has a pair of nude tintable underwear as well as some pasties if you need a little modesty along the low-cut bust line.  The bodice has a rich velvety look to it while the skirt features a sassy yet subtle polka dot pattern.  Feisty and demure at the same time, you need this dress!

For my nails I naturally went to the sl Nail Goddess B over at Dark Passions - Koffin Nails who never fails to have the perfect design for whatever look I'm wearing.  This time of course was no exception and her Lots O Dots set matched this dress like they were made for each other.  These nails come in 6 colors with a black ombre option for each color giving you a total of 12 options in one HUD.  Total bargain!

Then of course there were the eyes.....ohhhh the eyes.  When I like a designer I tend to go way overboard and buy nearly everything they have.  Then later, I have no clue what it is I'm looking for in the giant sea of greatness.  I find it's actually easier to look through my inventory by looking through the marketplace.  So when I need to pick eyes, I pop onto the VerseEye store to figure out what to use from my inventory.  Imagine me gasping in delight and glee when I stumbled upon a line that I didn't have!!!  How did I miss these?  The Dragon Wind set has 4 variations and each is better than the last.  Intense colors, heart-stopping detail, no clue how I hadn't seen these before!  I quickly snatched 'em up and haven't been able to take them off since!

It's astounding..........

Time is fleeting
Madness takes it's toll.


Greeting Ghoulish ones!  Have you made it over to the slGoth Magazine's TIMEKILLER event yet?  You really need to hurry. Time hasn't ran out yet, but it soon will. The event ends on Jan. 18, 2015. There has been some awesome entertainment each night, including concerts on the big screen and some pretty fab DJ's. So be sure to check the magazine's page for all the latest details.

My outfit today is from Thanks for All the Nebulae! again and just like the pieces I showed you a few days ago, it's pretty wonderful and currently available at TIMEKILLER. The lace detail on the skirt is absolutely lovely and look at how sexy that top is! It really is, isn't it? 
I am wearing another beautiful TIMEKILLER nail design from DarkPassions. This lovely design features all kinds of fun cogs and gears in a selection of metallic shades. It's totally perfect for goth and steampunk looks. And seriously it has "time warp" in the name.  I know that when I read that I cant help but sing a bit of the song from RHPS. Gotta love that!

Of course I slid some DeadPool, VerseEye and Mystic Canvass into this look.  Shoes, eyes and my skin all from the best designers on the grid. Yes, I do have a biased opinion, but there is a reason why I go back to some items over and over again. Because they are FABULOUS!

slGoth Magazine hosts TIMEKILLER January 9-18, 2015

It's time to celebrate 2015 in epic gothic style. The long running Second Life magazine slGoth is hosting a festival to kick off the new year. Not only are there 15 fabulous creators participating, but there are DJs and some lovely gothic storytelling. There are also some great movies and concert footage gracing the big screen at various scheduled times. Check the TIMEKILLER page for more details.

My outfit includes some lovely pieces from the event. This amazingly shapely corset from BYRNE is an event exclusive and also is available in a lighter version. The ribbon shoulder straps are truly unique and lovely.
My pants are from Thanks for All the Nebulae! and fit like a dream. The dainty lil Armilla Macabre necklace is also from TfAtN and will only be available during this event. I am wearing the gold and red version, but the set includes 4 color variations. All for 99L! It really is a lovely piece of work. 
Of course my nails are Koffin Nails from Dark Passions, you knew that already. But did you know that this lovely Time Killer set is not only on sale during the event for only 80L, but also BCreative Wilde from Dark Passions is donating 20% of the sale price to the slGoth magazine from all purchases during the event? How cool is that?  As always each HUD has multiple color choices and you get both a mani HUD and a Pedi HUD for that price.

All the shots for this blog were taken on the big clock tower at Morphe Inc. directly across from slGoth magazine.  The clock tower, called Visis Obscurum is truly magnificent in both it's detail and it's grandeur. You really should take a peek at it while you are on the sim.

The Artistic Side of Sneak Peek

There is still time to run over to the December Sneak Peek event. Not much though, so you'd better hurry.

My lovely little outfit is all from Petit Chat. This entire outfit is based on her original artwork which you can view here: Antigravity . Trust me you want to take a minute to click that link. The piece is gorgeous. Now if you have been following your Macabre Beauties you would know Dante already showed you this outfit here: Try And Enjoy The Here And Now, but I thought I would try to show you a different styling.  I decided to do a lil search for an art gallery to take pics in and amazingly I landed in the Petit Chat Gallery. How perfect is that?  

The gallery and store are pretty fab and make for a lovely picture spot. Trinity, the designer has some great, unique items out that are not only really fun but are fabulous for posing some pics. When you are done wandering the gallery and gardens be sure to head over to the mainstore for a bit of shopping. You will be glad you did.

This outfit includes all the usual standard sizes and also a fitted mesh version. There is a lovely selection of alpha layers to help you find the one that is most suited for your needs. It's super handy to have the boots, skirt and jacket all on one.  Yes, I said boots! They are included in the outfit!
