Time Will See Us Realign

{This Photo taken at Small Town Green}

I've loved the Small Town Green sim for awhile now. There are little spots all over the place to capture a great moment in SL or just to sit and lounge in. This hidden and overgrown railroad track is one of my favorite little spots. Although it doesn't have build turned on, it's still a great place for bloggers/photographers etc who enjoy their outdoorsy pics. 
I knew -just- where I wanted to take this photo and I knew just want I wanted to pair up my featured item with! I am featuring Death Row Designs at A Secret Affair. The Secret Affair this round was amazing! My compliments to all parties involved. My lindens were flailed all over the place! If you haven't been there, make sure to pay it a visit and grab this gorgeous armor by DRD! 
As for my hair, don't you love it?! Ugh Moon! Both of the Moon hairs available at N21 are out of this Slworld Amazing! At least in my personal opinion. You will definitely want them both! I am crossing my fingers in hopes that only more curly hairs will come to our SL, preferably ones without flex! Not that U have anything against it myself, what you wear is your business. After all, this is YOUR SL and nobody can dress up your doll except you. I simply dont miss it going into my body whenever I move =)
Okay okay, I got so much more to show you and don't be surprised if you see this hair and the curly hair blogged several thousand times. I can't seem to get enough of them!

"I Take My Time And I Always Win.." (Breaking Bad Spoiler Alert!)


{These Photos Taken at The Wastelands-Brookland Northyard}

Alright, alright...I know this photo probably has so many of you thrown off. Like, "Why oh why did Gia pose all purdy next to a head on a turtle?!" I have two words for you...Breaking Bad.
If you're a fan, then you know exactly why the turtle has a severed head on it (although it was a tortoise I think lol) and why it says what it does on that turtle. If you don't watch Breaking Bad then I am sorry...that you've chose to miss out on an incredibly awesome show with an amazing story line and top notch acting.
If you've just recently decided to watch it, look away! I hope I didn't spoil that lil bit of the story line for you. 
But ANYWAY! When Dead Dollz dropped this on me in a package called 'The Heisenberg Collection', I chose this dress first. All of the dresses are amazing but this one simply caught the eye (and well the name of course). You -cannot- hand Gia something with that title on the package and a dress named 'Tortuga' without seeing a bit of gore in the pic. The dress cut and style are so simple but so elegant, giving it a ton of dress up options and even making it comfortable enough for me to just kick off my heels and prance around like so. 
The awesome head on the Turtle is by 'Swagga' and is at the Level Up event this round in all its gorey glory! The theme for that event is 'Survival Horror' and I loved it! This head is animated with different pose options that will make you giggle...or vomit, either way, fun stuff!
My jewelry is by the ever amazing RealEvil Industries which seem to continuously be making things that I can put to use. This set is at the Jewelry Fair too along with their other awesome creations for that event. 

Coming back around soon with more goodies!

Say 'Pumpkin Spice Latte' Three Times


{These Photos taken at Neva River}

There is something about Autumn. All of everything about it. The smell, the colors, the feeling. I love it! By far my favorite season.  Spirits always seem to be lifted. It seems to take a lot to bring me down during this time of year. 
I have a dear friend in my real life who will text me bright and early in the morning and say something like, 'Hey woman! You wanna have coffee with me?" which usually means us sitting on the porch and sipping lovely coffee while chatting/bitching about randomness. In all honesty, I avoid this as much as possible during the summer. I can't stand the heat or the bugs...but during this time of year, I make every effort to have the coffee ready to go by the time she sends the text. I do live for mornings like this. When the coffee is perfect, I'm relaxed and dressed and I can just lounge and enjoy the sweet Autumn morning. 
Enjoy the colors loves!!

Coin-Operated


{Top photo taken at Rossers Landing bottom was at my lil platform}

Did you all make it to A Clockwork Spiral yet? If not, get to it! There's soooo much to show you all and two weeks just isn't enough time in Gia's World! Another one of my favs was this avatar set by Fallen Gods Inc. With such a complete set up, It made my blogging life super simple. It includes the dress of course, shoes, skin, hair, gloves, top hat, brolly and shape (however I used my own in these photos). 
While I was out and about, I had a fellow SL'er send me a portrait she took of me while I was AFK. She found the look to be quite interesting. The look made me feel very statuesque, not doll-like but still coin-operated. 
My bottom photo is unedited! *GASP* not a touch of photoshop on it.  I just feel like messing with it at all was unnecessary. The goodies in the bottom pic are located at A Clockwork Spiral too (with the exception of a couple, the girls portrait and the small suitcase). All by 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] which never cease to amaze me with their creativity and originality and quality! (Yas, I fan girl them).
Okay okay, enough of my ramblings. Just make sure to hit up A Clockwork Spiral and have a ball. It'll only be around till October 1st and then you have another year to wait!

"Ours is the Magick, Ours Is The Power"


{These Photos Taken at A Clockwork Spiral}

Full Steam ahead! A Clockwork Spiral is up and rollin'! There are a number of events that make Gia's World tremble with excitement and this is one of them. I always look forward to how themes inspire people. It's like taking a peek into their mind for a moment. The mind you're catching a glimpse of belongs to none other than one of Gia's World favorites (evar) DRBC! Last year, I wasn't yet a full on blogger during this event but I was already madly in love with DRBC. I saw the dress that was going to be featured at A Clockwork Spiral 2013 (which I blogged here!) and I had to have it! So I went there specifically for that dress but came out with bags and bags of goodies! DRBC is mostly vintage, rockabilly and psychobilly but it never stops her from venturing out and taking over other genres as well and I am SO glad for that! Because as we know, I am eclectic as all hell with my fashion! Yep, I'm that selfish, I simply want it all and enjoy doing so!
This years featured dress is also a mind blowing one! It's also pretty awesome to compare the two and see how much DRBC has evolved since then. The dress allowed me to get in storytelling mode and that is my favorite thing about blogging. Putting together an outfit is one thing but laying out a story for it is quite the other!
This event, besides being a place to upgrade your Steampunk wardrobe, decor, etc...is also an event you want to shop at because a portion of the featured items go to The National Kidney Foundation. Designers for this event were given the option to give 100% of their featured items proceeds to the Kidney Foundation or to make two items, both with 50% of the proceeds going to the Kidney Foundation, in either case...it is a great reason to (and completely justifies the spending of L$$$!) have a blast spending money on some amazing things. 
Also don't forget that Cursed events are a bunch of party-hardy people. Haha! That means clubbin' will be had throughout the duration of the event and these parties are ones you will love! Crowd is always pleasant, convos are always interesting, and weird but who doesn't like how weird compliments interesting?! And of course, the music is the best by some of the best music mentors on the grid!

Homage to the Women of Metal




I recently had a conversation with a friend on Facebook about ladies of Symphonic Metal. Although it is a well known genre and loved by many, it is not something I see posted often on Facebook or talked about in general. So when a great band popped up, I was all too willing to jump in on the convo. I also have a good friend on Flickr who made many awesome tributes to Rock Gods...but not one woman was featured. I've never understood why women often get left in the background of the Metal genre in general, when they can rock out just as hard, and just as passionately as any of the men can. There's nothing I find more awesome than a woman on stage singing her heart out, sweating and head banging with the best of them!
Etchaflesh dropped this one on me the other day and although I thought of the many ways I would pose...after that convo, I knew how this had to be done.

This is my homage to the women of metal. Not only the ones that are the singers, but the ones that kick ass on instruments as well! We salute you with horns up babeh!! <3

So Vulnerable...But It's Alright



Well hello again!

I honestly hope that something recognized here in Gia's World is that the style never remains stagnant. Although I love goth, steampunk, rockabilly, etc...it is never that all day everyday. The fashion world is far too vast for me to only explore and appreciate one style. If only I had the time (and nothing else to do) I could blog allll day and we'd go through a ton of different options!

So I got this 'Lil Black Dress' kinda vibe going on. This is a lil black dress I just adored. With it's quality texturing, super sexy lace but nice lil simple cut, it snagged me. I'm glad I waited a few to blog it because with the Jewelry Fair right around the corner, I was able to snatch up some gorgeous adornments for my lil black dress.

The dress is a limited edition special by Dead Dollz at the 24 Squared event. Have you been there? I hope so! And if you haven't you have several days left to get in. Make a stop in Dead Dollz and snag this. So many ways to doll it up, this is simply mine.
Don't forget my fav nail place evar is there too! Hit up Dark Passions and snag the limited edition elegance that matched perfectly with my dress! Here's a closie...
