The Darkest Corners of My Mind Are Yours...

Can you embrace all that Gothness above? You better! World Goth Fair is right around the corner and then you're going to get a nice bombardment of all that is Gia! But for now...I am having SOOOO much fun with Pose Fair's awesome finds! Seriously, we can make the outfit and get the look together but what would our pictures be without poses? The poses make or break a picture in my opinion. That's why I love my fellow blog friends that give credit to the poses they're using in photos and who created them. Same as any other creator, it takes talent, originality, creativity and lots of it!
I admit that I am a pose collector in Second Life. I get upset (seriously) if there is a pose shop that I am not familiar with. If you're wondering...I was familiar with almost all at the Pose Fair. The ones I didn't know, I got familiar with real quick!

So this awesome crow pose prop is a find at The Pose Fair. There were several up for grabs but this one I loved most. Yes, because I like things dark looking and what not but also because one of the poses reminded me of the movie 'The Birds" haha, actually all the poses did! Aaaand I love that movie.
So about this pose prop, it has a land impact of 5. The wall textures are modifiable, however I did not modify them, I just preferred to show the original.  I also made the walls transparent and slid the prop to the edge of my platform for another insanely awesome look. It's a very fun prop to play with!

As for my gown...oh the luff!! I stalked down AD Creations because...there probably isn't one thing in this shop that I don't love! All pieces of art! Original mesh, very gothy, very unique! Expect to see it blogged so much. Also make your way to the shop yourself to see it's awesomeness!

My gloves are pretty badass. They're fitted mesh and have a nice HUD that lets you change your hand positions. That's right...no slink needed! *gasp* Yep, prepare to have them on at all times. I love them!

Back in a bit with more AH-MAY-ZING stuffs! <3

Flame Job... {Pose Fair 2014}

 {All photos taken at Dark Eden-Horror Roleplay Sim}

Once again loves, I am back with some awesomeness!!

So what you're looking at here is another one of my absolute fav looks in Second Life! I have several but the Psychobilly look just rocks my socks! And it's a pretty challenging look to accomplish in Second Life because not many really do it right. Or if you do find it...it just falls short of being bad ass. And to be psychobilly, you have GOT to have your badassery maxed!

DRBC. Yep. That's who did it again. These tops are at Suicide Dollz (which opened Sunday!) for 100L...why does she love us so much?! We'll never know. Not only with this lil design either, there are several different ones to collect. One cannot simply wear one without the other so I made sure to strap on the newly released Bad Ballet Platforms by FK! Designs I love love love them!

And while I was out and about wanting a nice little bloody place for my shoot...I ran right into a place that I ended up hanging around in for awhile. It's an upcoming horror roleplay sim. Such awesome sights. I had a chance to bug the owner and talk to her about the storyline...sounds pretty awesome! Although I think it's all in German but hey, Google translate for the win!I will definitely be back for another photo shoot and boy if I could manage time right, I would try my best to join the roleplay!

Also featuring another Pose Fair awesome find by Vibe Poses, which is quickly on the rise for Gia's favorite poses in Second Life! Their poses range from artsy to casual, sitting and more! Definitely make them a staple amongst your poses! You will not be disappointed!

From my tattoo to my necklace, and everything in between....you will most likely see Gia in this often!

Back again soon! <3

All I Have to Do Is Dream...{Pose Fair 2014}

{Taken at Mystara}
Hello luvs! I hope everyone has had a chance to make it into Pose Fair! If you haven't, don't worry! It doesn't end till May 3rd so, you still have a bit to get in there and get what you want but you don't have forever! I was quite taken back by the set up and maybe overwhelmed at first but navigating it is quite easy. However, I will try to provide you all with direct TP's to the shops I am going to be showcasing.
In the theme of all things 'Spring', I found this pose/prop to be very adorable. This prop actually includes 15 different poses (these are just the ones I loved the most!) Also only 5 land impact. So pose for a photo or keep it in your place because it is adorbs! Either way, win win! The extra little floating cloud near me is also included

When I saw Sn@tch's new releases...I knew this Babydoll top was the one to use here! So many cute new Sn@tch releases! Maybe you are supposed to wear leggings with it...I'm sure you can but I chose not to! Actually...note here: wear panties at least! floating up in the air and realizing you don't have undies on can be quite a :o moment.

Be back in a few with more poses and more awesomeness! <3

"From the Ashes I Will Rise Again.."

 {Taken at Imaginaria}

I am so on top of these late at night blog posts!  I'm a bit on the sickly side right now *sniffles* so that is my excuse for this evening. In any case...yes I did rest a bit today but also wanted to show you this lovliness by Silken Moon. This isn't the only shade either! Make sure to follow Silken Moon on Facebook to keep updated with new releases and what the head lady is up to! I'm also wearing the Silken Moon skin and so I tossed the mask aside to allow you a cleaner view...

I love pale skins and with that red gown it just made it all the better! I know you can't see my shoes but, I stopped in Kustom 9 (as per usual!) and thought these were adorable!

Many ways to wear these and I decided to add them to my SL edition of 'Lucy in the Garden' ala Bram Stokers Dracula. Couldn't you tell?! Along with my awesome pedicure done by Dark Passions, which you will see blogged often because they're just doing it for me! She seems to get my style and love for all things...dark! (Hence the name of the shop :P)

Also, Pose Fair is right around the corner! The pose in the top photo is one that I found there. It includes the Arabian Veil and the pose. A HUD is sold separately for color change options.  Such awesome poses that I will be haulin' some serious butt to show you!! So stay tuned loves!

sTEAL My Retro Luvin' Heart!

Something about Spring and Summer that brings out the retro lover in me. Well, it's there all the time but, more so during those two seasons. I love that in that era, class happened at ALL times! "Hunny, be right back! Just going to grab a few things at the grocery store." And of course, you see the lady dolled up from head to toe. Serving pancakes to the family as the hubby then grabs his briefcase and heads out to work...but not before that loving smooch is given! The kids smile and run waving to her as they're off to school and she does the dishes and plans the menu for the rest of the week with a Colgate smile! HAH! It's a dream. 

I seriously spend so much time at this sim because there isn't one corner of it that I don't love. And...it's so quiet! There's nothing over the top there. It is just so realistically retro that...it makes me feel right at home.
Who else to wear there but my DRBC? Of Course!! You're not doing retro right if you're not in DRBC. Don't argue.

Honestly had a helluva time choosing which one of these dresses to share with you because each of them bring out a different vibe. This teal color being played with is one of the newer colors being featured and I fell in love...all over again! *le sigh!*
Perfect excuse to pair with my Eudora wedges and hand bag! Eudora has become a shoe shop that I admit, I fan girl for. Quality in the texture, originality they have got it all!

These are my wedges. I caress them lovingly. Well, not really but my goodness! One of my favorites!

The handbag came with it too and all with a HUD to change colors to your liking. Don't worry, you'll probably see these blogged several times over.

Can't forget my manicure! Dark Passions is just being soooo busy! One of the main places I will go to get my SL nails done. I was so delighted to see Dark Passions at the cosmetic fair this round! And YES, it started!

There are actually 12 different prints for these nails and an adorable polka dot version too! Don't miss Dark Passions at the cosmetic fair <3

In A World That's Black and White...

What can I say except...Zibska challenges me. The past week has not been an easy one in my RL so...when I tried this outfit on and saw that awesome head piece...it reminded me of things I am dealing with. Feeling a bit dark and gloomy but able to embrace all that is beautiful. Still trying to learn and grow from things that have hurt me, including myself but feeling like I just...am always reaching and never obtaining. I'm sure a lot of you can relate to that...and maybe a lot of you don't or don't want to. 
The place I visited there was AMAZING! A piece of art in SL that I could also relate to.

Both of these photos were taken there. Zibska's outfits are truly a work of art in Second Life. It takes a certain style and a certain love to embrace something that is so unique and gorgeous.

So as I was about to finish this blog, she released another head piece that I wanted to show too so you get hit with a double bang!

I switched up a few things, including my scenery. These last two photos were taken at Violator Headquarters. They always have a nice set up there and it was perfect for what I had in mind.
Another amazing work of art by Zibska! It was definitely a head turner. But it embodied my thoughts of Spring! 

Once again, this is me slimming down the amount of photos I am posting. I couldn't help myself! I still have a ton more I want to delve into. 
This style isn't for everyone but you'd be amazed at what you can find and what you might fall in love with in Zibska's shop. 
Look at the other lovely Zibska art work here on her flickr and keep updated with new Zibska releases <3

Don't Sit under the Apple Tree With Anyone Else But Meeee!

I know I said I was going to limit the amount of pics per post but...yeah this is me limiting! I loved all over this outfit and the scene in general. I was just like "Ok, let me pose here." No Wait!

Right here!

I crave fruits like no other during this time of year and allll through the summer. The when fall arrives, it's more vegetables. That's just my thing I suppose.
If I could though, I would easily spend all my money on fruit while grocery shopping. So, of course I had to do a spring pic with tons of fruitage!

I ran into a plethora of cuteness! Sn@tch released these cute lil dresses and I thought they were soooo cute! How to dress them up? So many ways! I went for a more casual/cute look instead of the super fancy. It's something comfortable and cool that I would definitely rock in my RL. Sn@tch has already released even more! I can't keep up! Make sure to click on the link above to follow Sn@tch on Facebook or follow on Flickr. AND...the dress has a super cute bow that attaches right over the bosom, I just didn't want to wear it for the pics (or *cough* I may have forgot to attach it, edited all the pics and was like awwwww daaaaaaaaaaaaamn! *cough*)
Also, Sn@tch is spoiling us with goodies at such a low price! Look for this...
at the mainstore attached to some of the outfits to find an awesome outfit at an insanely low price! It's why we love our Sn@tch!

My tattoo is another Reckless fav! It's just one of those tattoos that make you adore it from every angle. Check out my sponsor page above to follow Reckless!

The shoes are another new fav! I'll be keeping my eye on this little shop to see what comes up next!
