Dia de los Muertos and a witchy day in the neighborhood!

I think blogging has to be one of the most fun jobs in the world!  What other job lets you get the most wonderful stuff, for FREE, and then lets you take pictures of the items and post them?  You get to use your imagination and showcase the items in a way that is interesting and fun.  I love my job!

Especially at this time of the year – Halloween is the best. Holiday. Ever!  And when you add Dia de los Muertos to the mix … it’s just paradise!  And two of my favorite designers have made outfits that are perfect for these very important holidays.

First, La Bella Boutique {LBB} has an amazing Day of the Dead outfit and accessories!  I found a cemetery in the Sonora, Mexico sim and came up with this story:

She comes to the cemetery, every year at this time, to remember her loved ones – and especially one very special loved one, who died too soon.  She comes in her full Dia de los Muertos outfit, including makeup, headdresses of white and red roses, eyepatch, dress and shoes.  She sits in front of her family’s gravestones and ponders, feeling the spirits of her family surrounding her, comforting her.  She closes her eyes and lets the peace flow into her heart.  As she feels the time to leave approach, she picks up the stuffed bat, then the stuffed rag doll, and places them on the grave.  As she does, her lips turn into bloody ones, and a few drops of the blood falls on the steps to the grave.  She nods her approval.  She has left a bit of herself behind, as she does every year.  Thanking her ancestors, she leaves to make her way home.

And if you’d like to make your own story from these amazing items, the Bat Doll, Rag Doll, and Bloody Lipstick can all be found at the mainstore in group gifts – and the group is free! LM: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Everstream/174/215/3001.  The Monsterpack Makeup, which includes a headband of roses, makeups and lipsticks, and a hud to apply and change colors for all mesh heads and Omega, can be found at the Uncharted Event.  This event starts on the 5th at 3 pm SLT and closes on the 20th at 3 pm SLT.  To get there, here is the LM: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lake%20Destiny/114/97/2178.  And for the Dia de los Muertos outfit itself, which includes the sexy, flounced dress, decorated shoes, eyepatch and rose headband and a hud to change colors and textures, it can be found at the Ultim8te Event, from Oct 9th to Nov 2nd.  A few days to wait, but oh-so-worth it!  Here’s the LM to get there: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Alabama%20Sunshine/137/194/1108.

(Oh, and btw, {LBB} is looking for bloggers!  Just go to the main store and click on the Blogotex!)


Next designer is Sadie Dubratt, who owns Kitty Creations and Black Larl Designs.  She makes the most fabulous clothing, furnishings, etc. for medieval and Gorean RP as well as some more modern designs.  All of them are made very well and many of them VERY sexy!  For this set of clothing, I came up with another tale:

Once upon a time, a demoness who was easily bored went out to look over her pumpkins.  She adored pumpkins; she even wore a hat with pumpkins all around it.  She had cast a spell that would automatically change her clothing every few minutes, and it worked to perfection this day, as she began on the porch with the ultra-sexy Diamante dress in Purple, with silver patches for her … well, most intimate parts.  She walked off the porch after casting a spell to make it rain that afternoon – the lawn looked a bit dry for her taste.  She wanders around the yard, occasionally crouching down to look at a particular set of pumpkins as her outfit changes to Lexia in Lavender.  By the time she gets to her pumpkin patch, she has changed to Melissa in Purple.  She smiles at the pumpkins, looking wonderfully roundish and orange.  She thought, I will have to open the property to mortals soon, so they can get pumpkins – and I can get food!  Mortals’ essences do taste so wonderful …!

These fashions are on sale this week, so be sure to HURRY before it’s all gone!  Here’s your ride:  LM: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sadleirian/177/149/548.
