Meet the Ravens. Part Deux.

One big creepy happy family!
One day while taking an evening stroll at Ironwood Hills we found the sweetest young man just wandering around with his batty sister in his arms. He asked us if we could help him hunt for his family, as they seemed to have left them there. So after an evening of searching and speaking to the local residents we had grown so attached to the youngins we just had to take them in. They are such an utter delight. For the most part Zorphan is content to play quietly play with his toys while his sweet lil sister just wants to be cuddled and nuzzle your neck. I mean she really likes to just nuzzle whoever is holding her, it's truly precious.
So yes Mr. Raven and I have officially adopted and we are one big happy family now.  

With the Haunting event still in fully force at Ironwood Hills I was able to do a little shopping while we searched for the kiddos missing parents. I found the Bloodshed Bento gloves from Wicca's Wardrobe to be a perfect accessory for my Maven dress from ISON. I also knew that with two kids joining our home we were likely to need a hand in caring for them now and then, so I picked up a couple from CLAVv. Zorphan just loves shiny and bloody things so he had to have the FML knife from Hotdog, but I did say no way to the pet rodent after he cut it in half. I was afraid an undead rat would give his sister nightmares as she just seemed agitated when he let the blood drop on her. Now you know I can't pass up a new coffin, especially the lost souls one from Crate that comes with it's own ravens. 

Dark Passions Events - Trick or Treat lane is now open! Be sure to stop in and look for all the awesome treats left out by the designers, like this bindi from Astara. It even includes a color HUD! Astara also has matching earrings for sale at Trick or Treat Lane. I will have more about this event in a few days so keep watch here or check their website for all the event details and shopping guide.

Meet The Ravens

  Meet The Ravens.   

Here's a lil peek into our unwedding. The thing about special occasions is they need special dresses and this amazing design from Ison was perfect for this. Honestly, I knew the moment I tried the demo on, that it would be my unwedding dress. It drapes wonderfully and shows just enough skin to be absolutely delicious.  

You can see the Ison vendor pic here: Mia by Ison on Flickr.  

How perfect is the Nevermore tattoo by Karved for the new bride of a Raven? You can find it on marketplace. It comes with two tones of Omega appliers and guys, it's unisex!  So you and your sweetie can match!  

I have to say that I am the happiest I have ever been in my 10 years in SL. By some wonderful chance of fate, I have met the kindest, most amazing man. Asbjorn Raven says I am his muse, but in truth he inspires me everyday. His creativity, his heart, and his compassion fill me with hope for many, many amazing moments together, sharing our lives and our dreams. He brings to me a sense of peace and happiness that I find myself smiling about every day. His darkness matches mine, in a way that just fits. 

He is my Viking, my Raven, my Love.  

Most of the pics on this post are indeed Mr. Raven's. You can see his work here on Flickr. Be sure to check out his gallery, The Raven's Nest Cafe & Gallery in world. Feel free to explore the garden, make use of the photo studio and back drops (teleports located by the back door of the gallery) or just enjoy the current exhibition while lounging in the cafe. All are welcome at any time! Keep tabs on the scheduled events at The Raven's Nest on the gallery facebook page. We look forward to seeing you there!

Ironwood Hills "Haunting" Oct 1-31, 2018

Ironwood Hills
October 1-31, 2018

Ironwood Hills newest game is amazing! 
It's a creepfest of fun and prizes. The game is free, and ran by a HUD you pick up at the entrance. Follow the clues, meet the people, hear the story and unlock each step on your HUD so you can claim the prizes at the end.  
 Prizes?  Yes, prizes! Oh so many! 39 prizes from some of the gods of SL creep. If those prizes aren't enough this is actually a shopping event also. You can stop in and shop the booths without doing the game. Great spots for pics too, but you knew that already because it's Ironwood Hills. 

First and last pics in this set are by Asbjorn Raven. For more shots of our adventure visit his Flickr.

We had so much fun going through the Haunting game, it really was fabulous, but let's talk event designers.   

Join the scream team with this bloody cheerleader set from 1313 Mockingbird Lane. This would make a great Halloween costume for all those parties ya got coming in the next few weeks. There are a few colors to choose from each with a different "school" name. 

    As I was styling this look, the collaboration pieces from Clemmm and The White Crow were delivered.  OMG this body make up is great, really great. Even on my pale skin. Same with the eyes. I can tell you I will be using these items long after Halloween ends.   

YAY for creepy things, right?
Speaking of creepy things, what girl doesn't dream of a big old peeper around their neck? The Bulb necklace from Cubic Cherry is a bit of campy fun. And with the color HUD you can make sure your eye always looks good on your dress.  

As always your links are below.
Happy Haunting!

Fall is finally upon us, when the air starts to feel a bit crisp and we can begin to look forward to the fabulous season ahead. The colors of our palettes change to the hues of the season and late night strolls have a magical feel to them. Oh how I love this time of year!

A Mermaid's Tale

Who says mermaids have to be pastel and glittery, all full of sparkling wonder? Sometimes a mermaid's tale is a bit more tragic, a bit more heart wrenching than one can imagine. Sometimes these enchanted creatures of the sea are caught in a net of surreality.  Ruled by their Dark Passions, their inner siren may strike out leaving them alone in a pool of mystery to wonder who's blood in on their hands as they are caught in a forever Nightmare. 

Beautiful Darklings, hurry over to the Mermaid Cove before it ends on the 13th to get your hands on this fabulous polish set from Dark Passions. The bloody version I am wearing is only 1L as part of the event's hunt. Of course there is a pretty pastel version and a "clean" dark version .. you know for those days when you not feeling bloody. 
You can catch your girls up with the Handsie Covers from Nightmare available on the Marketplace. Not only are they super sexy, but the color HUD allows you to seriously mix and match the pasties, hands and chain.  I will be looking for more excuses to wear these, that's for sure.
Styling and shopping details are below. 
Happy Shopping!
