I’m quite sure I’m not the only one who had a gothy/punk faze when they first came to SL. Back when I started all those years ago, there was only one place that catered to all your dark needs, and that was Goth1c0. I wore their spike cuffs for 2 years straight, and stomped around in the biggest boots on the grid looking menacing and taking no prisoners. It’s a store that holds a dear place in my heart, and I’m sure lots of ’06/’07 babies feel the same. It was an absolute joy to me to rediscover this awesome store the other day.
The Rusher outfit is decostructed gorgeousness held together by a beautiful posture collar. It also comes with garters, undies, 2 options for the leather sleeve and shoulder pad and a whole lotta sass! It does not however come with pasties, but as I have 5468745867839 different kinds of pasties in my inventory that wasnt a problem for me!
The Militia dress is nipped and tucked in all the right places and appeals to my love of military apparel. The stockings are so detailed, I just adore them…not least for the fact that fishnet is a tough nut to crack in SL! My skin is Natasha, by moi. As the Skin and Shape expo is closing today, Natasha will now be available at my main store at the Deck. Look out for the notice when it’s all set and ready to go!

I haz the flu, for the second time in 3 weeks, bloody London and it’s stoopid weather! However, nothing could stop me doing this post as it’s about my very favorite store in SL. Silent Sparrow has long been a store I love, ever since I got a Halloween outfit there in ’07. My “Not So White Wedding” outfit remains in my inv to this day, which cannot be said of alot of purchases I made that year. In fact, piece for piece, my Silent Sparrow folder is the largest, unashamedly so :P
The Sprocket suit in Ash was one I didn’t actually own yet, but being a boy this week gave me the perfect opportunity to scoop it up and take it home.
The Ryou suit in Dove is a gorgeous suit, for either guys or girls. I also wanted to show it for the departure colour wise from Hya’s usual offerings. It really is spectacular, and I would have bought it for the pants alone, deadset perfect in every way.
And I couldn’t let Halloween go by without some blood. The Aconite suit is one I first saw on Ms Ach, and I wanted it soooo bad. Justice ended up buying it for me, as my account was having an epic cannot buy lindens phase, which seems to happen about once a year. The blood isn’t overdone, I love the bandages….all of em. I wanted to wear a tuff boy skin, so I chose my Inflict scrummyness. This particular one was a gift a few months ago, to celebrate the launch of the range, it’s a tad darker than I would usually go for, but works wonderfully for this post. These are some seriously stunning skins, Jussy flipped when she saw that at the Skin/Shape expo, and I spent hours standing in that booth just staring! Ok, entirely enough talking from me, go buy shit :P Ash out.
There is much sadness. After spending a blissful 2 weeks with my love, sadly time is up and he went home yesterday. However, on the plus side, we got engaged :P And now after moving to London just a few weeks ago, I’ll be moving to Seattle next year! I’m kinda glad I can still be a bit of a gypsy, it just wouldn’t be *me* if I wasn’t trotting round the globe with mini Ash in tow.
So for the first time in ages, here I am on the grid, looking for trouble and trying very hard not to shop. Paradisis clothes always have the power to cheer me up, especially the skirt that looks suspiciously like a belt :P
I’ve paired a few oldtime faves with an amazing coat from Jeckalicious, which I scored for free as part of the Demonology Hunt. It really is an amazing gift, so many ways to wear it and loads of options, Ash=happy. Now it’s back to emoing, I may just spam Flickr with moody pics full of diffuse glow :p Ash Out.

When I first rezzed in SL, I remember discovering places like Goth1co and just wowing. I spent much of my first year in Nomine skins, black hair and Goth1co clothes and accessories. I moved away from that look after a time, then through Freestyle, discovered designers such as Katatonik and Ghanima of Blueblood fame.
This latest release from Blueblood is just stunning. It’s called “Sublime” and it really does it’s name justice. I’ve shown it here in red, my all time fave colour :P The dress also comes in teal, purple, pink and black, so all bases are covered.
It’s the beautiful little touches that make Ghanima’s clothes stand out for me, the wee ruffles on the bloomers, the matching cross embroidered on the stockings. You have a choice of long or short sleeved, always nice to have options. And of course, no dolly is complete without shoes, these are the ones I mentioned previously from Unique Needs….wicked! Ash Out.
