I lost my grandfather Sunday, August 13, 2017, to his unending battle with cancer. It started as prostate cancer and moved into his bones, he was frail and fragile at the end and in so much pain. I’ve lost not one, but two of the most important men in my life this year, my step-father in January and now my grandfather. They taught me so much about life it’s hard to imagine them gone. The song at the end of this video is from Linkin Park, another great lost this year, Chester Bennington had a way of making you feel his music, you didn’t just listen to Linkin Park, you felt the emotions. This song is very emotional for me because the lights around me keep going out.
When I first saw that Reve Obscura was working on a brand new gacha set I knew it would be mine. A total of 6 poses with props in all with 5 commons and 1 rare and at only 50L a pull you definitely want to collect these. This one happens to be rare and it comes with the speaker, guitar, and cigarette. This pose set is available at the main store location.
Pose (new): Reve Obscura – Rocked Out Bento Pose Rare
I’ve said it before and probably will say it a lot, but I absolutely love when 2 creators make items that work so well together. Today it’s a brand new top from Vinyl available at Mesh Body Addicts Fair until August 21 and these awesome pants from Riot for 70’s Punk Rewind. Xayalith, the top from Vinyl comes in 17 individual colors and the Jennifer Skinnies from Riot comes in 40 kinds of leather, 14 plaids, and 18 suedes. The HUD also includes 9 metal options. For both items, you can purchase them individually or as a fatpack.
These shoes went perfectly with the look I was trying to create. From KC Couture, the HUD options on this pair of shoes are out of this world. With 40 color options for each piece of the shoe, 5 metals, and 4 metallic wedge options you can customize these shoes for just about anything.
Shoes: KC Couture – Gillian Wedges
West End Chloe is the shape that made me fall in L-O-V-E with my Catwa Catya head. Out of the box it is perfection, this one has some slight modifications but overall the face is mostly how it comes out of the box. I prefer a taller shape so I made my body a bit different.
Shape: West End – Chloe Catwa Catya Shape
I love Minimal backdrops, this one was from the last round of The Epiphany and is one of 9 available.
Backdrop: Minimal – Illusions III-2
Stealthic is always looking for new ways to make the hair he creates new and fresh. The newest option is the “animated hair”. Each hair comes with a style HUD so you have the option of 4 different styles but now you can toggle them to change randomly, just like real life. Who ever leaves their hair alone, really!? There is a GIF below this description so you can see the animation in action. This hair is part of the birthday round of Collabor88 going on right now!
This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and was released for Aloha Fair, which ended on August 10. I blogged this the other day and dummy me forgot to change skins in my excitement over the pose, outfit, hair, etc and my complete and total lack of concentration due to the grief of losing my grandfather. This skin is still amazing either way.

Mesange released a new set of eyes for the Hipster Men Event that began August 13. As with all Mesange eyes, they are unisex, come in 15 colors and work with Omega. There is also standard eyes and Mesange mesh eyes and HUD for those that don’t own their own mesh eyes.
Blushes Boutique has a new main store release with Desire. Desire is a lipstick that comes in two different HUDs. They are one shade of lipstick with different sayings etched into it. Mine says Emo Sad.
Lipstick (new): Blushes Boutique – Desire 2
I haven’t blogged a set of nails in a while but when I put this look together I knew only one place would have nails to go with it; Dark Passions – Koffin Nails. These nails were released a while ago for an event, and at the time I was an official blogger for Bcreative, but they were totally relevant to my look so I’m sharing them again.
Nails: Dark Passions – Koffin Nails – Black Star
Piercings: Code-5 – Alonza Piercing Set
