UnFrozen

The world is frozen, quiet. As if…waiting. Waiting for the sun to arrive and bring it to life once more. The winter solstice has passed (I’m rather late, I know) and the world will come full circle. It will, hopefully, soon be time for it to be un-frozen and come alive again.

Winter White

Yep. A while ago I was mourning the arrival of a damp and dreary autumn…but not any more! It’s December! Time for snowy landscapes and wonderful warm winter wear. Oh, and posing in said wonderful warm winter wear up against those snowy landscapes. Nothing like a change in the weather to inspire one’s muse once again!

This Way Comes

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…”

I’m not about to argue semantics with William Shakespeare, seeing as how he’s dead and all, but he really didn’t paint MacBeth’s witches with an attractive brush, did he? I suppose in his defense it’s not like he was the only one to conjure (haha) up images of craggy crones cloaked in black, stooped over boiling cauldrons. It’s an image perfect for costume parties. And while black might be the preferred clothing colour choice nowadays- at least for drama- I do prefer to glam things up a little bit while trying to keep up witchy appearances.

This Way Comes

Decorating helps set up a proper seasonal mood, too! I look forward all year to putting out the Halloween finery. So go forth and dress in your spiderweb tights and witchy buckle shoes, adorn your homes with gravestones and scarecrows, and if you happen to see spectral things dancing through your yard, just out of the corner of your eye, just remember that the veil is thinning…

Dirty Old Town

I think I can stop hoping that summer is still trying to stick around. The weather has definitely changed around here- it seems to have gone from warm and sunny to grey and wet overnight! All in all, though, I don’t mind too much…while a spell of of warmth and sun is always welcomed, I do so enjoy autumn. The leaves turn brilliant colours, the earth is well hydrated once more, and I get to overdose on all things pumpkin while snuggling up in front of my fireplace.

The only thing that leaves me a bit flat is the dullness of the city. When the skies are grey and there’s rain in the air, there no denying that all that concrete does nothing to stir the imagination. That may be why red is such a favourite colour to wear this time of year, because it is so delightfully defiant of all that grey! Black and red are a nice contrast to the monochrome, and cooler temperatures are a nice excuse to dust off the hats and boots.

Dreamed a dream, by the old canal
I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town…”

I Dream In Colour

I Dream In Colour

Perhaps I do, perhaps I don’t…it’s difficult to say for sure because I rarely remember them! But it amuses me greatly to think that they could look something like this. Just imagine- images so colourful you can almost taste them. And pretty things from my favourite stores certainly help in giving them life! If you haven’t yet done your round through the Taste The Rainbow hunt, I would recommend it. It’s a small hunt, as Second Life hunts go, so if you’re like me and are easily overwhelmed with massive grid-wide hunts then this small ‘taste’ of a hunt is sure to satisfy you.

The colourful scoop:
Kalina top from The Plastik [Taste The Rainbow hunt]
Metallic lipstick in Pink from Pink Fuel [Taste The Rainbow hunt]
Alyx skin in Vanilla from Pink Fuel
Fight hair in Blonde 07 by elikatira
Glitterotica eyeliner in Heathers Glitter from Mock Cosmetics
Jemma abalone earrings from Sn@tch
Wild Full Thick lashes from Maxi Gossamer
Pearl eyes in Vineyard from Poetic Colors
