Life in the Dark

 

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill

I went to three different events for this look. I found the head piece at The Chapter Four by Lode. Then, I headed over to Kustom9 and found this wonderfully textured hair by stealthic. Finally, I ended my shopping trip at Collabor88 and I bought this beautiful ruffle dress by ISON. I loved everyone of these events.

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” Helen Keller

I’d like to say to those residents being effected by Hurricane Irma, please stay safe. I hope other residents donate to the many causes helping out people effected from this storm. Again please stay safe. https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-irma-donations

I chose this quote because it reminds me of the trials and suffering of my grandmother. Cancer is a wicked thing. She’s currently battling stage 4 cancer. Sometimes strength comes in the most difficult of times. She fights to stay alive. Yet, she talks with everyone.

I digress. This outfit above is from this month’s arcade. The crown, wings, and dress are from Birdy.  Please check out my credits for further details.

This month’s Uber was excellent. Boy my pockets are empty. Between uber, the arcade, and soon Collabor88, I am going to be very broke. This dress is by Dead Dollz and called Bebe. I also found glitter eyeshadow by Izzie’s called evening glitter shadow. I love the detail. After going to Uber, I headed over to Tres Chic and found this hair by Doux called Shanna. If you like the above outfit, please check my credits below.

So there’s not much time before Romp closes. However, I wanted to get a blog post out before it did. I love Romp and I very rarely blog this event. I bought this wonderful outfit from Moon Amore. I’ve been a fan of theirs for quite some time now. I also bought a hand harness from Astralia. Even though you can’t see it that well in the photo, I highly recommend it. The detail is on point. Romp closes August 25, so there’s not much time to head over there. They have sultry clothes and some yummy furniture. Check it out.

A Quiet Hour

rest_001.6 - Copy

 

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

John Lubbock

I found this quote, while lamenting about my time off. I couldn’t have said it better. Sometimes people require quiet and silence from everything around them. I am no exception. I took time to enjoy the sound of crickets, hear ocean waves, sleep, and eat really good food. I let myself give into doing absolutely nothing. I feel more relaxed than I have been in quite some time. I recharged my batteries and I’m ready to face the world again–kind of.

Let me explain. A few weeks ago, someone on plurk talked about how their blog changed, when they were going through things in rl. Their blogs became short and to the point. I thought it was good advice. Many people use sl to escape, work, socialize, be creative, and so many other reasons. I don’t want to disrupt that peace any more. I’d rather remain mute or get to the point rather quickly. Maybe this will be a permanent change with my blog or maybe it will change over time. But for right now, I shall get to the point and discuss events.

Now that being said, lets talk about my outfit in the above photo. My hair, flower crown, dress, and bracelets came from this month’s round at Collabor88. This month is their birthday celebration. It’s one of my favorite events. You will find bright colors, which reminded me of the mod trend in the 60’s. Everything is colorful and bright. I was very happy with this round, since all of those colors tend to lift me up, when I’m down. I hope that the colorful round at C88 lifts you up too.

Uber was fantastic this round. I bought out the place. This dress is from Erratic and my glasses are from Minimal. The sword is from Violet Seduction at the Epiphany.

Please be kind to each other and to yourself.

Note added: I will be taking some time off from blogging this month.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage”.
Lao Tzu

I’ve wanted to do this picture, since the creation of this blog. I’m so happy to finally take this picture. I waited to gain some editing skills—and the right outfit. I’m happy to do this picture because there’s so much representation in this one little photo–that has surrounded my time in second life. We all choose our path. Mine contained creative characters, caring people, sometimes difficult people as well, and a few that provided laughs (when I really needed them).

The moment that I knew this picture needed to be made, I looked forward to sharing it with the one person who would appreciate it the most. I believe in signs and omens. So when the epiphany was filled with Asian inspired items and those few things that reminded me of a person that surrounded me in my second life, I knew what it meant. It was time to do this picture. Of course, I wish there was a better time to do this picture–perhaps a year or so ago. But timing has always been an issue for me–nothing is ever convenient. BUT, maybe it is the perfect time. Hopefully that person meant to see it–reads this post.

Then, I found this wonderful quote that sums up so many things for me. It’s personal and relevant–and on the nose. I have such a friend that has been there over the years. He gave me strength in some of my darkest of hours. I had the blessing of courage, but I also needed strength. It’s a very valued trait to have, especially when your journey in life requires it. Yet, I imagine everyone must need a bit of strength to get through real life–as well as second life. Maybe the person who gives you strength is miles away. Maybe they’re family, a beloved friend, or maybe they’re even a stranger. Where ever you find strength, cherish them while you have them. This post is dedicated to the one person who was my strength, during my most difficult of times. Kitsunes will forever be in my heart.

Okay, now lets talk about how I got to this lovely picture–THE EPIPHANY! I love this event so much. I love gachas. Three different companies helped me to create this wonderful picture–Cureless, The Ugly and Beautiful, and Zenith. The wheels in the background are from The Ugly and Beautiful. They’re called Firey Green Wanyudo at the epiphany. My kimono, umbrella, and gold fish in hand all come from Zenith (Shen Le) gacha. The Zenko kitsune beside me in the above photo is from Cureless. All of these items can be found at the epiphany. So try your luck at this wonderful gacha event!!!

Be Good To One Another!
