I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go
Walkin’ with a dead man over my shoulder
Waiting for an invitation to arrive
Goin’ to a party where no one’s still alive
My mood can only be described as Glam-o-ween. I wanted to be playfully wicked, sublimely sexy, festively dark, and maybe a touch sinister. Luckily for me, I decided to pop over to Legendaire for the latest group gift and found the perfect dress to set the foundation for the ambiance I wished to create. I dug into my bag o’ accessories and found just the right touches to meet my goal.
Trust Me, I’m a Legend.
Legendaire is such a great shop to be a VIP member in. They are oodles of gifts to be snagged, and a good flow of new ones to keep it all fresh. There are 29L deals every week, and surprise boxes spread throughout the store in a sort of mini-hunt, where you can get deeply discounted items. The Legendaire group is currently 50L to join.
The “Kate Dress” that I am wearing is the latest group gift, just set out a few days ago. I was pretty excited when I opened it and found this festive orange color in the HUD, along with 7 other colors to chose from. I love the sexy drape of the dress along the back, and the sparkly shimmer made my inner little girl giddy. This dress comes in several sizes, XS-L, as well as Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza. There’s also a pair of two-toned pumps in the box, but they aren’t pictured here.
Accessories are a Web of Endless Possibilities
So, a glittery orange dress doesn’t scream Glam-o-ween on its own. Lucky for me, I had a few itsy glizty spiders to give my look that creepy edge I wanted. Both the clutch and the hand spider are current group gifts at Glint. There are actually three Halloween Clutches in the gift, along with this spider there are skeleton and ghost ones in different colors and patterns. Glint is somewhere I go often, there’s 7seas fishing, hunt participation, weekly sales, a 500L gift card raffle each week, and a couple of lucky letter boards. Being in the group will also let you wrack up store credit every time you make a purchase. Best of all, the Glint group is FREE to join!
The dark crystal “Halloween Spider Necklace” is a FREE gift from Hilly Haalan. I’m thinking it was part of an outfit and I set the necklace aside in my jewelry folder so that I could pair it up with various things and not forget about it. I’ve blogged about Hilly before so you can read more about her wonderful shop in that post.
The orange crystal earrings I am wearing are part of the “Orange Crystal Set in Silver- 3 Piece Set” that I picked up for 1 linden at Beloved Jewelry. Also in the set are a necklace and ring (not pictured, there is such a thing as TOO much jewelry on at once.) While you are there, is a whole section of 1 linden jewelry, a FREE gift for the Fab Free Group, and several past group gifts on the desk. The group is FREE to join, and gifts are sent through group notices on a regular basis.
Hair and makeup are brought to you today courtesy of Truth, ATIA, and Dulce Secrets. My lovely updo is “Adeline” found in the discount section at Truth for 50L. I’ve once again slicked on the “Persimmon” lipstick from ATIA, a marketplace buy for 25L that I get multiple uses of. The last detail is the smoky onyx eyeshadow that I found in a huge box of makeup by Dulce Secrets set out at The Free Dove.
The very last detail is my manicure, which is a FREE gift from Dark Passions at the Guest List Event on the Flawless sim, the same event I got the “This is Halloween Dance” I gushed about in my last article. I just realized, that I’ve been to 3 events that Dark Passions had nail polish up as free gifts, and loved and blogged all 3!
Tripping the Dark Fantastic
Finally, I slipped into my shoes to head out for a night on the grid. I paired these patent leather high heeled Mary Janes that I took out of the box of the “Feronia Burlesque Style Complete Outfit” that I got this week from a lucky chair of Brii Underground. Glam-o-ween complete, it was time to get my Monster Mash on.
It’s a dead man’s party
Who could ask for more?
Everybody’s comin’; leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door…
