Crystal flowers

It was always hard work to get the dreamflowers. She had to manage to dream herself to them. She was a great dreamer but this was a really difficult task. Those dreamflowers only grow in dreams which contained nothing but them. So she had to manage to imagine emptyness. It was one of the hardest task for a dreamscout but she knew how important it was that the wizzards always had enough of those plants. They were the most important ingredient in the spells which healed broken hearts.
Crystals and free clothes
The Looking Glass have always a gift hidden somewhere on their sim. This month its a set of crystals. The ones from the picture which look like plants belong to this gift. They are well made and not primmy. The set contains five crystals. The gift is hidden somewhere on the looking glass sim. You could find the hint to find the gift in the little town on the same sim. The sim is really beautiful so it is fun to search there and there are some groupgifts available as well. House of Fox takes part in the current For the Love of hunt. In this one the participating stores set one of their items on 1L$. The jumper on the picture is this item from said store. The primparts include an resizescript and the textures are very pretty. The boots are a current groupgift from Tainted. They also come with a resizescript. I like all the leatherbands on them. The necklace is an other freebie. I won it on the Southpaw lucky chair.

Crystals: Crystal Cave Rocks - The Looking Glass Gift (0 L$ hidden somewhere on the sim)

Mature Dreams

Elvira was happy. She had not supposed that she would be able to pass the test. But surprisingly enough she didn't fail at all. Now she was allowed to show her ears in public. It was a test all had to pass if they wanted to be seen as mature. The easy part was answering a bunch of questions about the history of the society of dream. But then it became tricky. They had to create a dream. Elvira had hoped that she would get the task to create a beautiful dream. She was known for having some talent for those dreams.

But instead of this she got the task she did not want at all. Creating a nightmare. This was the moment when she was sure that she would fail. First she thought about monsters, tentacles, thin hairy legs with clawed feet. But the time she had been given to design the dream was to short to create scary sounds so she decided to improvise. The dream she created was one of the most horrible ones which had been ever created. It was about waking, getting ready for work, going to work, working, going back home, watching a boring tv-show, going to bed. Everyday for the rest of the dreamers life. None of the testers wanted that the dream would ever be used. But they kept it hidden in a safe. Just in case that they would need to torture somebody.
New Wasabi Pills hair
Wasabi Pills released new hair which is available in two versions. Its called Kiki. The haircut looks like a bob which is a bit more feathery at the tips. There is one version which has two long streaks at the front and one without the streaks like on the picture. As all hair from Wasabi Pills it is available in many colours and has a resizescript. When owning some more hair from this store fitting hair becomes really comfy and easy as normaly it is possible to use the same values to make the hair fit, as they seem to be built in the same size. The ears are the Depraved Urban Wreckage Hunt gift from gauged. The hunt includes a lot of great stores for more informations its worth to take a look at the huntwebsite. They are amazingly easy to tint and the button in the earlobe can be textured in several ways. The gift includes a hud for tinting and texturing. The gothy dress comes from Aliza Karu. The system parts come on the jacket, trouser and glove layer. The prim parts do not include a resize script but it wasn't tricky in my opinion to make them fit my avatar. I like the collar with the lace and the lacing in the front very much. It might look very nice with other outfits for example combined with a short dress which does not cover the shoulders. The bleeding nose is a facetattoo from hysteria and the eyes come of course from Sterling Artistry.

Hair: Hair: /Wasabi Pills/ Kiki II Hair (250 L$ for one colour 1500 L$ for the fatpack)
Dress: [ALIZA KARU] Line goth dress (450 L$)
Ears: :GAUGED: Elf Ear (Ver2) - URBAN WRECKAGE (0 L$ Depraved Urban Wreckage Hunt)
Blood: ~.:.Hysteria.:.~ Bleeding (35 L$)
Eyes: Sterling Artistry DragonEyes_IndigoFrost (60 L$)

Sometimes I read Avatars in Motion. Its my favourite second life travel blog. So I found Alice: Madness Returns where I took the pictures for this blogpost. The poses come from DARE but this store is closed so they are most likely not available anymore.

[brothers of gloom]

When the lovely Miss Nuuna Nitely released her latest male skin, the 'Ellivu', I knew that I needed to have it - come what may! I'm still not quite sure if it was the sharp contrast between black and white that attracted me, or the fact that it looks so gorgeously gloomy; I've always had a fetish for bones and anything related, and this is what you get here: lots of delicious, beautiful bones all over the place (errr, skin).

In combination with the 'tunnel eyes' from {nestle my bosom} you can easily achieve the look of some nasty, walking dead that's been brought back to life by an experienced voodoo priestess seeking for revenge - and who needs nipples in that case, anyway?

And psssst... ladies, there is a female version available as well!

Skins: +Nuuna+ - Ellivu male (both skins in one pack for a mere of 250 L$)
Hair: :KM: - Mash Wolf No1 (streaks are colourchange)
Eyes: {nestle my bosom}- tunnel eyes (no longer available)

Pants: [ Cynful ] CapeyoJeans - white and black
