I'll Be Waiting For the End of My Broken Heart



{These Photos Taken at Pigeon Island}

Can I talk to you all as friends? Can I pretend that we're close...that we've been friends for years and I am writing you a letter? In the past few weeks, months...I've not been too honest with you. I've told you real life has kept me busy and I didn't go in depth with it and I don't really want to. I know you have your problems and I am but another person, I don't want to burden you...but I wanted to let you know I am dealing with a lot. Physically, mentally, emotionally. Winter is never the best time to be around me anyway. Maybe it's this place I live in, the lack of Vitamin D is real! Lol. Don't worry though I am taking massive supplements!
With everything going on, blogging has been so hard for me to do. Not for lack of anything, the images in my head are never lacking. If I could grab the images right out of my head, I'd have over a hundred blog posts a day! But being real in my posts has been a struggle and I want to always be that. I want to be just the same Gia that I was the day I posted Ms. Zombcakes for the world to see! But the Gia in front of you right now is a broken one and so that is what I am giving you. So I will try to be honest with you from now on, and maybe my pictures might seem odd or sad but if they are, know that I am allowing you a glimpse into my head and feel free to share hugs. <3 So moving on...

Sn@tch I love you so! For years I have followed this shop and Ivey (owner of Sn@tch) never seems to let me down. Constant new releases at such great prices, snaggables, fishing at the mainstore and of course the riot boards that we all love! And if you meet a newbie, make sure to send them there! She's got a killer packet that often tempts me to make a new avi randomly lol.

Avi Choice Awards voting has started and I was so surprised when a notecard was sent to me, informing me that I was nominated. Honestly I checked to see if it was a mistake or something. I don't know how that happened but to place me amongst some of the bloggers that I admire most for their talent and photography skills, I've already won. I'm just little Gia amongst a sea of bloggers, having fun showcasing some of my favs and talking about randomness so for someone to notice what I'm doing...I'm just beyond words. I am there, Sn@tch is there right along with so many others, so make sure to head over and vote for some of your favs. It's not like it's a trophy or anything...but like I always say, a smile is a smile, in real life or in SL! That smile is worth more than anything!
Vote right here!! ---->http://avichoiceawards.com/fashion-awards-vote-here/

At His Majestys Command



{These Photos Taken At Whispering Windz}

My apologies loves, how I do wish I could blog all day every day but real life is so hectic right now and not being nice to me so I am struggling a bit but trying to be around as much as possible!
I recently had a 'Tudors' binge on Netflix. Ugh, what can I say? It's a guilty pleasure! One of the many. But if you wanna rewind just a tad, my obsession with this era started when I was a wee lil girl and I ran into my older sisters readers digest book on the supernatural. One of the stories was on the ghost of Anne Boleyn and it went into a little bit of her history and I remember thinking to myself...how damn tragic it was and how bad it would have been to live back then as a woman. 
Anyway, Dead Dollz sent me this lil loverly gown after my Tudors binge and Death Row Designs released this amazing table (stuffed pig included!) all at We <3 Roleplay so I smashed them together with The Tudors at heart...and then this lil shop came up out of nowhere and dropped the infamous Anne Boleyn necklace down for The Witching Hour event and I ran. I literally ran as soon as the event opened and snagged it right up. It's a gacha with several different options so of course, I chose to wear the blood spattered one...in typical Gia fashion!
The table and its entire layout was just amazing. I find DRD to still, after all this time to honestly just be one of those shops in SL that just can't fail me. *Crosses fingers* And better darn well not! Lol 
For the roleplayers, this is simply a must have in your homes, taverns, etc! Easy enough to catch a few dwarves wandering around this table as it would be to put a few thrones down and serve a King and Queen here. It comes with animations too PG and R rated *wink wink* With all of this, it only has a total of 26 LI, can seat up to 8 people and also has other chairs available for purchase with more animations included in them.
A big thank you to Whispering Windz for allowing me to play around in their wonderful Tudor-ish sim! The tavern was just what I had in mind but the whole sim is definitely worth paying it a visit. 

Back again soon! Yes yes I promise this time! No, seriously! <3

We All Float Down Here




Oh...are we supposed to be decking the halls already? Not in Gia's World kiddies! It might forever look like Halloween because that's what makes Gia happy in Gia's World!
Cirque de Seraphim started several days ago and I made sure to pop in and snag a few goodies. Surprisingly what I had the most fun with was poses but you know me, I love my poses. But there's a ton of stuff from clothing to decor, poses, shoes, accessories and everything else in between.
Some of my favs are there and I had to show off their goodies!
Now, if you've been a resident in Gia's World for awhile, you know Dark Passions is always included or around somewhere but usually on my nails, did you know she occasionally plays with clothes too?! She does! She made a cute lil ringmaster outfit I had to play around in for awhile.

I do have a confession, my confession is this...when it comes to carnie/cirque/freak show I am bias and I love taking photos based on those themes! So yes, I may flood you a bit in pics this time but go ahead and admit it, you enjoy it! <3

Okay okay...back soon with more my luffs! Go to Cirque de Seraphim and grab some stuff!

And Death Climbs Up the Steps One by One...



{These Photos taken at Missing Mile}

Oh my loves, my deepest apologies for not being here for you! But if you know me then I am sure you understand why. Halloween is such a busy time for my little family and right after it is Dia de los Muertos which we have celebrated for many many many generations in our family. Far beyond sugar skulls  and face paints, it is something we hold dear and sacred. From the feast to the clothing we chose to wear for three days straight. Music, altars, photographs, homemade candles, homemade sweetbreads and our family favorites. It's something I am hoping to keep going strong so that generations to come will continue the tradition. So you see? I wasn't ignoring a single one of you, that I promise. 
Of course I will come back to you with DRBC breathing some life back into me, so to speak. 
I had a chance to celebrate a lil bit of my Dia de los Muertos with some friends at The Rubb that always throw the best Day of the Dead bash evar! It is a day long event (literally) and attending their events is almost like attending class. You will want to bring a pen and paper and take note because these people know their music like no other. I always come back from their events searching down artists and buying tunes online! This is the outfit I rocked there that day.
I paired up my DRBC with a splash of Eudora, Swallow, Exile and an awesome Baiastice find! Grab em' and snag em' below and I will be back soon with more stuff n thangs <3

I missed your faces so much! *smooooooch*

When Worlds Collide

{This Photo taken at Insilico}

I don't know if when I started blogging I thought it was going to be an easy thing to do...I don't think I did but in any case, I doubt I really knew what I was getting myself into lol. Now don't get me wrong. I love it, I honestly do. Though at times, I seem to put myself into predicaments that I just have to shake my head about....and at times I am blessed to run into several things at one time that fit like pieces to a puzzle. 
This is one of those times. 
My lovely futuristic get-up is by the one and only Frost Kit of FK! Designs. Not new at all to Gia's World, in fact he's one of the ones I admire so much because of his insane talent with texturing! Familiarize yourself with his shop, I promise you will not regret it and while you're doing so, snag this outfit. Oh man, I love it long time! For many reasons. It's a full mesh suit and the body build on it is adorable! From bewbs to butt it will make you a narcissist with your avi. I slapped it together with some newness from A&Y and made a nice mash-up for a cyber femme-fatale!
You can hardly see my nails so here you go...

Unedited pic of another badassery by Dark Passions! Please don't ever get tired of seeing Dark Passions in Gia's World because my nails are pretty much exclusively done by her! What can I say? I love my gothy and spookiness and she does it all with on occasional floral print even!
Okay loves. I shall be back again soon <3

There's Things With Horns & Saucer Eyes!!


{These Photos Taken At Pumpkin Town}

I'm so glad I finally made it over to Pumpkin Town! Such a cute little place that brought back so many childhood Halloween memories. Definitely pay it a visit if you haven't. 

So today is the FINAL day for Vintage & Cool and in typical Gia fashion, I had to sneak in a last post before it's gone and we don't see it again for awhile. 
I had to get in some Goth1co love, it's a shop that has long been in my Second Life, since the beginning of my days. I'm always happy to see that Keishi (owner of Goth1co), keeps involved in events, hunts, etc and keeps the shop alive. It's good to see the shops that were around in my first days of SL still going strong. Goth1co for The Vintage & Cool Fair had a psychobilly swirl to it and so it won me over. I'll admit that though I love love my rockabilly stuff, psychobilly will win me over hands down!
I complimented it all with a cute bag I snagged from The Little Bat for the Kawaii vs. Creepy Gacha, I love it sooooo!! Spooky and cute at the same time I had to have it on me. Speaking of spooky and cute, MishMish I love love you! Cutest lil monsters evar for the Tag Gacha  and I took them out to Trick or Treat with me in the top pic. To complete the look I rounded it off with a nice new pale skin from Skindustrial Bodyworks. A new bloody makeup set is available for this months round of Horror Haute and those smexy red lips are in the package with appliers for Nyam AND Loudmouth. The skin isnt available yet but will be soon and believe me, for my gothy and pale skin lovers, you're going to want it!
Heels by L. Warwick of course for N21 along with the other awesomeness there. Make sure to snag them!

What I wanted to say before I go though is that I hope you all really enjoyed yourselves this season. Try to remember what it was like as a kid. I know its not the same for all of us. Some of us are Halloween lovers and some of us enjoy Christmas more...but when I was a kid, it was alllll about Halloween. It was such a big event in our family. We almost never bought costumes because making them homemade was always way better and so much more fun. Anyway those masks from the 80's were a hazard!
That's what I tried to base my top picture on...the spirit of Halloween and never losing it. 
I am sure I will see you all again before then but have a blast, we only have a few days left till Halloween and YOU only have a few hours left before Vintage & Cool is over! <3

"Baby It's Just You I'm Thinkin' Of!"



{These photos taken at Dyess Colony}

The Vintage & Cool event is almost over and I still feel like I've not even tapped into anything so I really hope you've all been there and looked around and of course, I know most of you snagged this outfit. The dress was honestly one of my favorites of the event, are we allowed to say that? Haha. Well it's true! With it's simplicity, soft floral print texture, it really did embody the theme of the event. Great job Delirium Style! The dress has so many different prints to chose from, make sure to check them all out and, it's a fair EXCLUSIVE so don't miss it!! I paired it with Eudora's Vintage & Cool release which complimented each other well with another soft floral print design on the wedges and a HUD that allows you multiple color options on the material as well as the wood part of the wedge.
I decided on doing a school girl kinda look with this outfit because...I've always loved the vintage style and being able to enjoy a teenage life during that era, I think, would have been amazing! Albeit heartbreaking! As it seems so many of the icons were so tragically/abruptly taken. Although I am in Johnny Cash's boyhood home of Dyess Colony (in SL) my heart was wrapped around Elvis during this post...well all of them. Elvis, James Dean, Patsy, Buddy Holly, Ritchie...we could go on forever, I love them all! So my post is dedicated to them, the ones that kept/keep our heads in the clouds, make us sing along and keep us in an era far better than the one we're in right now!

Oh I got more to show you, gimmie a sec <3
