Gothmas Awakens the Bride

I told you Gothmas by Gaslight was right around the corner! It's here! It started! This is an event for those of us that can embrace the darker side of this holiday and all the beauty of it!
Right now I am feeling semi overwhelmed with everything that this event has to offer lol so much to show so first things first, I had to show some DRBC luff!
Though there are a few options for you from DRBC, I am showcasing this amazing lil gown. I immediately thought of my fellow roleplayers, and people that roam the medieval sims. This is a gown you wont want to pass up. So simple but very pretty. I ran into this gorgeous photo online and it inspired the bride to awaken and celebrate the holidays! So of course, I couldn't think of a better dress or brand to bring the Bride to life with than my beloved DRBC.

Make sure to click on that Gothmas by Gaslight link above to get your shopping maps, join the Cursed Shoppers group, and keep updated on Club Gothika's schedule for the duration of the event because they party hard!
But I will not keep you! Head over and hopefully we will bump into each other at one of the Gothika gatherings! <3

World So Cold

{This Photo Taken Here}

One of the lil quirks I have with Second Life photos, especially during these winter months is that it seems like...nobody cares that their avatar is standing out in the middle of lingerie (for example!). I personally like to layout a storyline for my photos...and I know, that's just MY personal preference and not everyone has to do that. That's just fine. But if you're standing in the snow butt ass nekkid, I would like to know why. So I sat on this photo for a minute for that exact issue. I had to ask myself if I would take a stroll if the winter chill would nip at my bare shoulders and legs...depending on the situation...yes. Have you ever been so angry that you don't feel the weather? The sting of the winter wind on your face is nothing in comparison to the feeling that is completely engulfing you. 

I loved this dress by Skindustrial Bodyworks. It is available in several colors just in time for dances, parties, gatherings, date nights around this holiday season so make sure to grab them all!

Be back in a bit luvs!

Winter In Versailles

{This Photo Taken Here}

In typical Gia fashion, I am getting this post out way later than anticipated, though I've had this picture (or one similar to it!) in mind since I saw these heels. I honestly do let my wardrobe inspire me. I wouldn't know how to pull this sort of thing off otherwise.
By now I am SURE everyone has been to Uber but I hope you've made sure to grab Eudora's awesome heels that are there or their items that you see anywhere because if you see Eudora, you're guaranteed some of the best quality on the grid. These heels are so very feminine and with the HUD that they come with, they give you a plethora of fashion options to dress them up or down, this is just the way they inspired me. 
I mashed them up with some goodies from other events and had a ball trying to find just the right place for my picture. What?! Is nobody else in SL obsessed with Versailles like me? Geeeze. 
Anyway, Gia's World is going to be super busy so I'm chopping the pics! I shall give you an eye full in one pic, I promise <3 With Gothmas By Gaslight around the corner and some super busy sponsors, I bounce in anticipation! So see you all in a few! *le smooooch*

The Ghost of Christmas Past

My dearest apologies for not getting this blog out like daaaaays ago but you see I have a good reason, which will be located on the bottom of this post.
After a lil talk with my friend Anika, I decided that this house was far too great to just feature a few pictures of it here and there, I wanted to do something different.
This house and all of the awesome little knick-knacks in it are by Death Row Designs and are available at the Arcade this December round. Oh ho ho so many things at the Arcade that just made me want to slap the designers lovingly with my lindens. Lol. But this is definitely one of the gacha machines you're not going to want to miss.
With the attention to detail and the nice warmth the little quirky house gives, it's simply a must have for this time of year and one you'll want to put out every Christmas! My favorite part of the house was of course dear old Ebenezer's bedroom. You can just tell how much work was put into all of this. Death Row Designs is a team now and I think they do a damn great job together! They always leave me eagerly anticipating their next project.
So this was my first time in a loooong time playing with video, and then on top of that I decided to get a new program so you might be seeing more videos from me (maybe, no promises! Time permitting!! Gia is a busy busy lady). So be nice as far as judging lol and enjoy my little walk through of Ebenezer's house and I hope it entices you to go snag it and enjoy its warmth this holiday season...before the Ghost of Christmas Past comes to haunt you! Also, don't forget to grab the awesome lil snow man that is a free gift from DRD at the Arcade featured in the beginning of the video with and without sound effects. <3

Back soon my loves!

Big Bada Boom!

{These Photos Taken At Hangars Liquides}

Neeeeedless to say, I just had a ball playing with these pics! I've been experimenting more in photoshop with lighting and blur of course and doing a Fifth Element action shot was the perfect project for the job! 
DRBC dropped a loverly little dress for the anniversary round of Suicide Dollz! Happy Anniversary Suicide Dollz! With over 60 designers participating, this is a round you most definitely do not want to miss! Well, don't miss any round but if you miss this one it's a high five to the forehead for you! Lol

So, it's been my goal since the beginning of the creation of Gia's World to show you things that I simply adore, admire, look forward to, etc., in Second Life. Main one of course is the many designers who I fan girl over because of their talent. Of course, without saying much, you all know one of the designers who I love long time but there's a reason of course! And I really hope you can see that here. The reason I chose to blog the plan white Leeloo dress (Although there is another dress available with a color HUD!), is because of the texture. Although I had fun in photoshop with my pictures, I really wanted to show the texture of my dress in my bottom portrait. I didn't photoshop the dress AT ALL in the bottom pic. Played with my skin, hair, lighting but not the dress.  While in SL I have seen so much mesh clothes that is supposed to be white but it looks like it had paint dumped on it rather than any texture at all...but if I've done my job right, you can see clearly that this dress has an insanely great texture to it! I just have to applaud her on a job well done as there aren't too many that do white on mesh like so. 
With that being said, keep your eyes locked on DRBC as I know this month is a busy one and the releases are a comin'! Gothmas by Gaslight and Horror Festive are right around the corner. Click on the DRBC Facebook link above to keep updated on all things DRBC and to see what she has lined up for upcoming events.

Busy busy days in Gia's World! Eyes here ladies and Gents! <3

Ain't No Party Like A BookWorm Party!

{These Photos Taken At Frisland}

The Geeks n' Nerds Event has come around again. This is my second year participating in it...and my second year not feeling like a geek or a nerd according to their items lol. Don't get me wrong, I say nothing bad about them because I love designers. They put a lot of work into what they do...I'm just saying I guess my definition of a geek or a nerd is kind of off. 
I got called a 'nerd' a lot because I usually carried around random books (I still do). Books to read randomly, poetry, old favs, classic American literature, classic horror of course, biographies,...and then there's that side of me that is allll about Middle Earth. When people see me carrying around my Lord of the Ring books or The Hobbit, I get "the look". That's a look I don't mind though. Yes I do in fact indulge in a book or two. Yes I have in fact shut out the world and read a book in a day and yes I have cried over a book, got mad over an ending and rage quit reading several books when they got stupid. *coughFIFTYSHADEScough*
I also get the look when I mention that I am a gamer. For some reason, all these years later...girls are still looked at oddly when we mention gaming or our love for it. I don't get it. I've been a gamer since I fell in love with Atari when I was a lil girl. It was console first and now PC is my luff n stuff and I could never go back to console (shh console lovers, just take it). My love for PC gaming has out lasted several relationships so you can't pin it on that horrible misconception people have 'Oh she games for her boyfriend", no no no...they can't keep up with me! 
I made sure to represent not only my love for reading but my PC love too! Though not in typical Gia fashion, I was willing to take on the challenge of rocking these shoes out because Lindsey Warwick is that damn badass. Her high quality textures never cease to amaze so, no...the shoe is not something I would typically wear but you cannot deny talent and she has it. Although the nerd in me does love the lil control command on the shoe lol.  And as you can see, when you want to, you can rock anything out!

2181 Days...

{These Photos Taken At The Wastelands}

Our world is a vicious one and the fight is endless...and even when you think you've made it, you can finally relax, take that little breath and kick your feet up, there's always someone else there to knock you back on your ass. Welcome to reality. 
There is something to be thankful for though...and I really had to search for this one so, feel special. I think we've all read that Facebook picture that rolls across our feed several hundred times a day that says "Be Kind, For Everyone You Meet Is Fighting A Hard Battle", but look into it, think about it. It holds so much truth. Nobody knows what you or I are going through. I know, I can at least be thankful I've made it this far...since in this past year I've seen people who I thought to be far greater than I crumble under a battle I fight every single day. So hold your heads high, fight the battle, but be considerate. Be Thankful for what you have and for what you don't have...tomorrow is never promised. 

What is promised is that DRBC keeps me insanely busy! I'm like YEAH I can finally blog this! And here comes another release! Not complaining though! If I am busy so are you! All my sponsors keep me busy! The trench badassery I have on has literally DAYS left before it is out of Suicide Dollz so grab it before it's gone foreverrrr!!! (or until she puts it on the marketplace lol) And then keep your eyes locked on the next round of Suicide Dollz because it's a stunner! I'll try my damnedest to get right on it! 
Also, take your butts to Genre if you haven't been there already. I've already blogged a few things from there in my last post and my wonderful peg leg by DRD is there as well and it is a MUST HAVE! 

2nd pose from the top, welcome to a pose shop that Gia fan girls over! Yes I fan girl over poses. It's no secret that I simply adore my pose makers and even more so when they include poses in their props because for bloggers like me, it can take me forever to get pics done but their props help so much to create the mood and offer so many ideas. This pose is by The Pose Shop owned by Piper Patrucci who, thus far has been a peach and a half when it comes to customer service and random chat. From snuggly poses to sexy poses, standing poses, relaxed and kicked back on a chair poses, skater girl poses, cutesy Christmas time're bound to find something you'll like. Expect to see this pose shop lots in Gia's World!

Okay okay, enough babbling, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrated <3
See you all again really soon! *le smooch*
