Chasing Cthulhu

Ahoy Mateys!
Yes yes, Gia had a little was much needed. I don't ever feel the need to announce it here. I guess I just feel secure enough with you all and know that YOU know I will be back soon enough. So far, it's worked for us pretty well. I hope I am finding you all in good health and stuff.
I stated in a previous blog post that I ran into a podcast I love. Not only that, the whole podcast world blew right up for me and since then I've found several. Another one I love is the H.P. Lovecraft podcast. It's basically a couple of dudes talking about the works of, of course, none other than, H.P. Lovecraft. I'm oh...kind of a Lovecraft fan!
Anyway, I was so excited after the podcast that while on break at my RL job, I brought it up and, silly me, I guess I assumed everyone knew Lovecraft! Nope, I just looked like a nerd I guess. nobody knew what I was talking about and so when I went into short descriptions of some of my favorite stories (Of course starting with 'The Call of Cthulhu'!), it sparked a pretty interesting discussion. One of my co-workers blurted out, 'Oh I read romance novels and occasionally a mystery but I don't really read that guy stuff.' .....Excuse me?! What exactly is 'Guy Stuff' when it comes to reading? Can you even label it like that and have it make any kind of sense? I know it was just her ignorance. Surely not all of us women are supposed to read romance novels all day, right?! Please tell me I am right. If that's not the case, well then...I guess I'm a dude! Along with all the rest of the women that love sci-fi? Lovecraft? Whatever she was trying to say. She couldn't really answer me when I did ask her what exactly she meant. She responded with a 'Oh you know, guys mostly read that kind of stuff.' I had to laugh. I informed her I fell in love with Lovecraft and that whole entire genre when I was just a kid. I had siblings that brought me into it but still.
It irritates me that THAT mindset even exists. It honestly has to stop. It's what keeps me from making any kind of friends in RL. It's so very hard to find another woman who I can sit down with and discuss for example Lovecraft, or my love for the horror genre or gaming even! Maybe it's just in my neck of the woods, is it? Do any of you run into this issue in RL or in SL? They like pink, I like black. They like Hallmark Channel, I am horror....etc, etc, etc.  One of the many reasons I love Second Life! It has brought so many of my fellow weirdos close to me and so even though they're not right next door, I do have friends.
So with all thoughts of finding Cthulhu, I set out on a voyage!
Remarkable Oblivion again just always amazes me. Enchantment this round is pretty epic so I hope you've all been out there to snag all the stuff. I know it's hard with all the events going on. Even us as bloggers (at least me, lemme speak for myself here lol) have a hard time keeping up with alllll of these events. I love them though, especially when they are themed. I think it pushes the designers to get creative and I love seeing what they will come up with! Dead Dollz was another fav of mine for this round of Enchantment, Cerberus Xing too! All featured here. I wont hold you any longer though, but will be back soon! <3

"She's A Myth That I Have to Believe In.."

{Taken at Ironwood Hills}

Places in Second Life have slowly started to become covered in all the fluffy white stuff...yes, I do mean snow. Right now, I appreciate it. I am from the northern part of the U.S. so I grew up around many feet of snow during the winter. Winter just isn't winter unless you have to navigate icy roads and can sit in the back yard building igloos. Well, we tried anyway. We never actually could get to the ceiling part of it, we'd just get some pretty high walls going before my siblings wanted to start an all out snowball war and then...the walls were no more. 
The sim owners in Second Life have such talent though. I don't know how they manage to pull an entire place together. The smallest details are always what get me. Ironwood Hills has been a favorite of mine, several of my blog pictures are linked back to it. Creepy and gorgeous with one of the best graveyards in Second Life. Make sure to pay it a visit.
Remarkable Oblivion has given us some more wings to play with. So many of us are still in the RO wings that were released awhile ago. Just like those, these are also gorgeous! With a darker vibe though, at least that's how I saw it. These are available at We <3 Roleplay, be sure not to miss them!
I will see you again soon luvs!  Much to show, so little time <3

Summoning Spirits, Snuggling Cats

Hey guys and dolls! Welcome to another day in Gia's World. I hope you're all doing well, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

This is a month where I just embrace all my introvert and I look forward to my weekends of snuggling and warm drinks. You know, a nice 'Netflix and chill'. BTW...oh my goodness, did you know that phrase there, 'Netflix and chill' means something sexual?! I didn't. Out of sheer boredom, I looked it up and guess what, it means to invite someone over and...basically have sex while Netflix is going in the background. I don't get people these days haha. I am known to turn even the most innocent things into something pervy but that is just random. I don't mean random in a good way either...I more so mean that it doesn't make any damn sense. Be creative. And they ruined it for the rest of us that actually just want to chill while watching Netflix damn it! I guess this is where my age starts showing. Damn kids and their ridiculousness! Lol-
Speaking of, I devoured 'Ghost Adventures' on Netflix. I love it. I mean, I know the guys are silly but that's what makes the show for me. Who doesn't love Spooky with a side of Silly? It reminded me just how much I am in love with all things paranormal. Paranormal everything has been taking over my days lately so, pre prepared for future pics that may be inspired by my love for the paranormal!
But anyway, there are many things I love about The Pose Shop but one of the main things is that she surely can capture a realistic cozy pose and bring it into our SL. I so love my poses! I hope you've had a chance to check out the Sad November event. If you have, I hope you stopped at The Pose Shop's booth and snagged these adorbs poses!! This is a Sad November Exclusive so once it's going you're never going to see it again EVAR! Lol dramatics. Just go get it. You will love the snugs.
My DRBC top went right with my creepy but cute vibe here. That is DRBC though! Creepy and Cute! This top is on the market place only right now. To my 'goths' and darker people, this is a great addition for your fall wardrobe! With its attached sweater, and the many different prints, you will want this one around!
I will see you all again in just a bit, I've already got a pic going and I am super excited for it but in the mean time, yes, snuggle all the kitties with me! <3

Thanks to my Kuppy for letting me use her crib!

November Harvest

{Taken at Elysion}

I so hate saying good-bye to October...but I know all good things must come to an end. And just to be a sarcastic ass, I always make sure to share the countdown till next Halloween, there's always a person out there that'll get butt hurt about it!
Even though we say goodbye to October, November and December still warm the heart...maybe not in the same way but that's just a cluster of months I am learning to really love. I know some of us get really down around December. It's a stressful time of year! The one thing I can do is make sure to not focus on me. Mind you, I am not saying that will be the solution to YOUR problems, I am simply saying that is how I am wired and how I work around the 'C' word blues *CoughCHRISTMASCough*. For example, I focus on how excited the kids in my life are about the holidays. They seem to share their excitement with me, if only for a moment.

This time of the year is always an amazing time to bring around those warm colors, knit sweaters and all the cozy things! I am looking forward to a lot of the events coming up because I know they will deliver just this!

Speaking of the 'warm colors, soft undertones, etc etc...I simply adore Glam Affair! It seriously doesn't matter if I am wearing a mesh head or my normal head, Glam Affair just makes all the adorbs happen. So I couldn't help but put together a picture that would not only highlight the skin but show how much it inspires me and reminds me of the beauty in this Autumn Harvest.

Halloween Is Everyday - Gia's World LoTD

{Taken at Saint Pete City}

I am seriously amazed at how fast time goes by. I swear I just posted the other day. This is what happens in the life of a very busy woman! So many pictures floating around in my head, ideas, outfits...and sometimes I feel like I actually did blog it when in fact, was only a thought. 
Halloween in just a few days and in the spirit of it all, I have been enjoying a podcast. I am new to the podcast world and maybe I shouldn't have crossed over because I am hooked! So a friend suggested I listen to Darkness Radio, have any of you listened in? It's paranormal talk radio. I simply cannot get enough of it. There is nothing I love more than some spooky with a side serving of goofy! I've already caught up with them since their September podcasts haha. They need to get to work. I work full time, that means they have to entertain me for 8 hours! 
So yeah, besides scary movies and stuff, I've been enjoying my spookiness via podcast too. 
I have a LoTD kinda post going on today. I thought it was pretty appropriate attire for us 'gothy' or 'nu goth' lovers during this time of year. It is still a lil warm (depending where you live!) but can get nice and breezy, maybe a bit too breezy so you'll want a sweater nearby. 
I gathered some of my faves and a new DRBC release for this adorbs look. I hope you all are having a fab week! Go listen to the podcasts, go play grabby hands at Suicide Dollz for this awesome top that comes in multiple prints! Then get your butts right back here to Gia's World. I've got some more stuff and thangs to share <3

Gone A Bit Batty

{Taken at Ironwood Hills}

Hello my lovelies! It's the weekend! Let us rejoice! The long work weeks make the weekend that much sweeter. 
So Halloween is officially 8 days away! I swear this month just flies by so fast! If there's ever a time when I can relate just a lil to being bipolar, it's during October. You get that high in the beginning of the month. All the sweet smells of Autumn that start in September are only intensified and it is so intoxicating! As the end of the month comes (so damn quickly!) the high just drops and it is upsetting. We need a pause button in life. Someone get on that!  
In other news though!
There's a little event going on in Second Life called 'The Truth About Bats & Avies' brought to you by SL Goth. Several designers from SL have gathered together in an effort to bring awareness of the rapid decline in the bat population, white nose syndrome, and other things threatening their existence. Proceeds from the event will benefit Bat World Sanctuary which is the only accredited bat sanctuary in the world. How I admire that there are people like that in this world. If only I were a rich woman. I bought things from this event with a smile because it's for a great cause and because there's so much awesomeness there. Other designers include: Spellbound, Sn@tch, The Little Bat, Livid, and More! Make sure to check it out!

I couldn't think of a better brand to be there to support the bats than DRBC. In case you haven't had a chance to get up close and personal (woohoo!) with Ms. Dizzy, owner of DRBC, she is an absolute lover of bats! And I don't mean using them as a cute lil print on clothing (although she does that so well too!) I mean she just simply thinks they're adorbs! So it is no surprise to me to see DRBC there with a gorgeous batty dress! The dress is called 'Vampira' and it so reminded me of Vampira. 
The quest to look like Vampira in SL I thought would be a simple one but it wasn't. Just so you know SL hair creators...there is no Vampira hair in SL! We (I had Dizzy helping me look for hair lol) scoured SL for hair similar to Vampira's. My requirements were the center part and the hairline and if possible, I wanted the vintage curls at the bottom. Nothing was found. Not.Ever! Spellbound had the closest thing that I wanted. The hairline was there because you're originally supposed to wear barrettes with it. The bottom of my hair is edited in the top pic to curl under. Originally, it hangs a bit straighter. 
Dark Passions Koffin Nails is also participating in the event with some adorbs batty nail appliers for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza. I even included a closie for them, I loved them that much <3
Go grab all the thangs! Have a spooktacular weekend! I will see you all again very soon! Make sure to follow Gia's World on Facebook too! I am all over the place. Plurk, Twitter, Flickr

Voyeurism...They Like To Watch

The thing about watching's naughty, you're not supposed to do it...and so it's a turn on (to some!). What you might not know is that the person you're watching, might actually like it. So who is the real perv? Haha. I mean, so long as you don't include murder....
I think one of the first movies that exposed me to 'Voyeurism' was the movie 'Psycho'. I was too young at the time to know it was even called that. This amazingness by DRD will remind you of just that. The other movie that exposed me to it was 'Sliver'....anybody watched that one? One of the Baldwins and Sharon Stone...pretty steamy stuff and so much voyeurism!
TAG Gacha is up and at em' this round! Such a great one! I hope you've all took some time out to enjoy it, and I mean that...honestly it takes some time haha. But I don't mind hopping around to all the stores for some shopping fun. It's always great to see what they will come up with.

Here is a picture of the outside of the Motel!

And here's some of my personal faves, unedited shots of the Motel. Remember you can teleport to a Demo that is rezzed out for you right at DRD! (linked below)

Good luck in snagging it all, make sure to check gacha yardsales and trade with people! It's okay to be social in a social game! Lol Sometimes <3
