Sometimes with fashion, you have to take a break from being serious and just have fun. That is what I did for this look. I took a few things I got review copies of and thought to myself “You know what you should do with these Gabe? Make yourself a unicorn.” So I went with it. This is what I came up with.

Halloween is in nine days! Are you excited? I am super excited! In the spirit of Halloween, I created a Grim Reaper inspired look.
Remember a few post ago I did that picture with the stripper pole. The event Fair which it is from is on a new cycle. Unlike last cycle there are a few male items mainly the make up (which is unisex) and the pants. The pants are part of an outfit that also comes with a top and shoes (I think shoes) but for this look I only used the pants. I will be using more fair items in later post.

Because it is October and because Cinema is still going on I thought it would be best to do a really creepy look. The look uses many things from the event things you would never think go together but I find work really well. The look ended up looking a little on the creepy side so I had a little fun with it and created this image
In some cultures demons and bad temptations take on human forms. Inspired by this, I created a story line for this look. Meet Fumigant (the laitan word for smoke). Not get get all PSA on you, but smoking is bad for your heath. But the funny thing is when smoking first came out it was seem as a glamours thing. This look is glamours in my option. That along with the pose gave me the idea of Fumigant.

Hello Darlings. I have returned. This new game called Real Life stole me a way for a while and made me build a model of a stage design out of cardboard and paper. For those who do not know me in the real life, I cannot build. I can’t cut a straight line or draw a straight line. So this project took me forever and it still looks like a hot mess. However that is not the point of this post. Today, I have two post for you this one that you are reading now and a later one which will be submitted here soon after. For this post I wanted to bring attention to an event I am looking forward to. That event is called Cinema
Cinema is the brain child of a wonderful woman in Secondlife life by the name of RubyStarlight Writer and her brand Hottie Cooterati. This event is similar to one she put on last year with the “Festival of Sin” but using film genres instead of the seven deadly sins. Like FoS the designers are split into groups. On the top of my head, I do not know all the groups. But I do know that these is a film noir group, action, horror, I want to say romance and porn. Yes porn.
What I find really cool about this event is the different ways that designers take the theme they picked. For example, one brand who was assigned porn did these very amusing dildo high heel shoes (which I grabbed up right away). Some of the designers even went so far to design their vendor ads to look like movie posters. Pididdle has my favorite one so far. The event itself does not open to the public until October 13th so keep your eyes open.
October is coming up real soon and I for one cannot wait. The month holds my favorite Holiday which is Halloween. I am going to challenge myself to create a Halloween look every day for the month of October. In fact. I think I am going to issue a Blog Challenge! I challenge my fellow bloggers to join me in the Halloween fun for what I am going to call the 31 days of Halloween. I will write up more details about it later. But knowing me, I had to get a head start.
So the look above is not really a costume. But the look was inspired off this really cool ring/hand thingy I found off of the second life market place. You can see it better in the image I am going to put bellow the cut, but just because I want to show the details, here is a close up of the hands for this look.
I also am changing the way I blog. I will no longer be doing a headshot. However instead, I will be linking to face details like this one here. While I am on the subject of headshot. Can I just express how much of a money whole the store Truth is? I try not to go to his store because every time I do, I end up buying a few hairs. I think I own around…a lot. I own a lot.

Before I get to today’s look I want to make a quick update on my last post. Being the forgetful person I am, I kinda, well lost the log on info for the password I set the formspring account to. Which is all fine and dandy but I also forgot the password for the account. Mind you I wrote that long post super late at night. So, I made a new one. You can leave your styling challenges and request here. I also am rethinking of renaming that little project maybe… I don’t know.
Now lets return to today’s blog look.
I was going to start my alter ego project today but I was kinda thrown off when I got bit by the inspiration bug that fell out of one of the new CheerNo hairs. The Milan hair is my favorite of the three releases simply because I can see my face. I am not saying the other CheerNo hairs are bad. It’s just right now my thing is having two different color eyes and I’ll admit, being the narcissist I am I like to see off my face. Plus the hair also shows off the Tableu Vivent skin at the Fairy Tail event taking place on a platform above the Glam Afair sim. The surl to the event can be found here.
I have decided that this week is going to be Fantasy week. Every day this week I will highlight something I found at the current Fantasy Faire 2012. It gives me a change to play with my avatar a little bit more than normal as well as play with different fantasy creatures. Today I am a faun. But not just any old “Oh hey I live in a forest and play a flute” faun. No, I am the Faun from the Boarder. Or The Faun from Mexico.
Fantasy Faire 2012 is now in full swing. It is a fantasy themed event with many sims. I like this event because it gives me a chance to play dress up and have fun with my outfits. Today I was dressed like a demon.
So, Menswear Fashion week is almost here and I for one am excited. It is going to be a sim full of men’s items and some of those stores will be releasing items exclusive to the fair. With that being said. I will be blogging some of the review items I get from designers. These items will not be for sale until the Fashion Week Starts on the 23rd.
