The Cryptozoology of Pandora's Box

Attending glitzy parties was never really her idea of fun... Ball gowns and looking pretty can be fun but she's not very good at dancing! While looking for a bathroom, the inquisitive Rudh stumbled upon a dusty library - the library of one of the oldest houses in town is something that cannot be passed by - and so she found herself in the barely illuminated room, opening a dusty tome...
The book, it turns out, is an old Cryptozoology text called "The Monsters of Pandora's Box", inside were illustrations of some weird and wonderful creatures that had Rudh transfixed, not noticing as a small box hidden in the corner of the room... Pandora's Box of Monsters was awake!!
That's right, it's time for this month's Pandora's Box to open it's dark little lid and reveal the treasures within... I warn you things are about to get a little Monstrous - the theme of this month being Monsters...
The book that Rudh is reading is actually one of the awesome Pandora's Box goodies from Candle and Cauldron this month - along with a really gorgeous map that will make an appearance here soon I feel - I'll tell you more about the box in a few minutes but want to share with you something else in this photo that's simply stunning...
I was officially allowed to become a blogger for the store Oubliette this week - it's the darker side of Petite Mort's owner that is brought to lift within Oubliette - and as soon as I saw this dress I HAD to share it with you. It's a Lucretia Gown - one of 6 different colours, shown here in Onyx - that is available at the Midsummer Enchantment Event, and well frankly, it's hard to pick just one because the colours are all so gorgeous!
Back to the Box though... CALLING ALL THE MONSTERS...
As a basic reminder, the best place to go to sign up for your box is the Pandora's Box HQ. Now that the box has been opened the cost will be 2500L, which will allow you to join the group and get your box - bear in mind though that you only have until May 30th to do so - and all those wonderful goodies will be yours. Then after the last day in May the group will be emptied and sign up begins for the following month's box - which if you join the group before the release date will be 1500L! You can get more information about this at the Pandora's Box Website!! 
For now though, take some time to read this book with me, as we turn the pages you never know what monsters may be revealed in Pandora's Box...

Hair: Truth - Imani in Redhead

New Dress, New Parasol and a sudden urgent need for CHINESE FOOD!

I feel like doing something pretty today... Don't look so shocked, sometimes it happens. Admittedly not often but I may be sent something by a designer - and although it's not my usual style of attire - I can often say I feel inspired to try something new... Today is one of those days, and today's outfit was helped by the fact that I knew the perfect location for this pretty look... 
For some reason it struck me as a little Asian inspired - I don't know why - perhaps it was the addition of a free gift that came from the designer of this outfit... I couldn't help myself, I slipped into full on Disney Princess mode LOL... 
Walking around in the beautiful set at WHOLE WHEAT, twirling this parasol - which is the free gift from Petite Mort that I mentioned before - singing songs from Disney's Mulan and developing a craving for Chinese Food... Dammit, now I want something sweet and sour! 
The dress - like the parasol - is a new release from Petite Mort, that can be found at the latest round of Trés Chic. Whereas the gift is available in just the one colour, this dress comes in an array of different colours and make such a lovely collection of summer dresses that it was hard to pick the colour. 
I have to cut this short though, I am craving some Chinese Food... I have to go, NOW... LOL

What is she wearing;
Parasol: Petite Mort - Peacock Parasol (Gift Available until July 10th at Trés Chic
Hair: [monso] - Yeri in Red 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Choker: *BOOM* - Precious Bow Choker in Marshmallow 
Dress: Petite Mort - Essmie Dress in Turquoise (Available until July 10th at Trés Chic

Sleepy me needs a Spring Cleaning

Oh my gosh... I am so sleepy! HellBone had to get up early for work this morning but that shouldn't normally be an issue... The bigger issue is that we went out again last night and didn't get home till late! It's a sign that I'm getting too old for this LOL... You may remember I mentioned a Five Finger Death Punch concert last week, well that was all over the media because it wasn't their finest hour, and last night we were able to go see them again for a FREE make-it-all-better concert... IT WAS TOTES AMAZEBALLS! I'm so happy that we got to see them shine again, even if it was without front man Ivan Moody... Still enough of that rambling, right now I'm tired - have after gig sleep syndrome LOL - and just want to chillax somewhere cool today! 
Rudh, however, is being put to work... I have things to share with you, and even though she's dead tired - some might say an Insomnia Addict thanks's to the new make-up from Nightmare - she's a trooper, hence the helmet LOL... 
This new Nightmare make-up can be found at the new Spring Cleaning Event, which starts today and runs until the 30th. At this event you will find 35 different stores have put out discounted items - and even though it's Spring Cleaning don't let the name fool you a LOT have new exclusives! 
NOW, there is a bit of a difference with this event too, so let me explain... There are two ways to buy the things at this event! Buy right there at the event - where there will be a small discount on the items - OR touch the purple flower located over the ad of the item in question. This will give you a LM and a hunt hint, and then all you need to do is go to the store for a BIGGER discount! This make-up for example, is priced at 199L at the event, but if you go to the Nightmare Mainstore to hunt then it's priced up at 120L!! Understand? All you need to do to get the locations and hints, OR buy the item is to head to the Spring Cleaning Event
Now I know that in the picture the make-up is looking pretty but maybe a bit harder to see, SO if you look below, Rudh has been good and is sharing the store ad, just to give you a better idea at what you'd be buying! 

What is she wearing;
Helmet: Lewd - Narcolepsy Helmet 
Hair: [monso] - Yeri in Red 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Eye Make-up: Nightmare - Insomnia Addict (Available until June 30th at Spring Cleaning Event
Lipstick: Izzie's - Insomnia 
Dress: miss chelsea - Lili Tee Dress in Grey 
Pose: Signature Pose - Pretty Hurts

A long walk to Nowhere

Job hunting is massively difficult, and I seem to be walking around in circles, walking on the road to no where... It's hard to find a job in a country where you don't really know the language. I'm pushing myself and hoping that everything will work out but I feel like I'm just walking around and around and getting no where fast. It's rather draining, and my happy vibe from earlier this week has slowly withered away... I'm stuck, wandering, and feeling fairly empty... 
Feels like I'm walking down an abandoned road... 
Luckily I had a friend with me, my adorable little Pibble Puppy - an adoption from the recent Jian collection at The Arcade - because everyone needs someone that they can rely on, and he makes me smile, always being cute and silly. I couldn't help but find myself smiling as I wandered the route to Nowhere, and wound up at a little bar in the WHOLE WHEAT region. 
It seems like relief after all that wandering and loneliness, needing to wash her dusty jeans and shirt - from Blueberry and cheeky - and the backpack on her back feeling a little heavy, I guess that I'm channelling my inner feelings out into pictures. 
For now I guess I have to just keep on walking! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Rumor in Redheads 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: cheeky - Phara, My Morning Shirt in Black (Available until June 22nd at Suicide Dollz
Bag: DRD - Wasteland Backpack in Brown  
Jeans: Blueberry - Mia Jeans in Faded 
Pose: Image Essentials - Vogue 2 (Available until June 24th at Jersey Shore
Dog: Jian - Playful Pibbles in 7. White Companion Pup (Available until June 30th at The Arcade

Tattoos on a Biker Chick

One of my favourite things about SL is that I can be covered in tattoos and scars... I'm never normally seen without at least one scar on my face and my major tattoo all over my torso and arms, but the reason I love them so much here is possibly because I'm too chicken to have anything done in RL. I want a RL tattoo, I have the idea in my mind, and am in talks with a friend of HellBone's to possibly get one, but when it comes to Rudh, I have no problem covering her in tattoos because, well, Pain Free!!! 
I've worn tattoos for a long while now, and I will admit that I tend to be a little picky about them... I LOVE Mandala style tattoos, don't ask me why, I know there are so many different styles out there and it's just the one that I seem most in love with. There are also a LOT of stores that cater to my favourite style tattoos, but I have to say that I am always drawn back to the tattoos at White Widow. I love their quality, and designs, and this "Spotlight" Tattoo is one that I have worn for a long while now. It was exciting to think about tattoos, when I discovered this awesome little tattoo shop at TM8, while looking for a location to show off my adorable new top, and tease with the cute new pants too... 
The tops of these pants that you can see are a bit of a tease I know, they are a new release from WONDERLOST at the Vintage Fair, and I'm hoping to be able to show you them full length sometime soon LOL... It was the top though that I really wanted to share with you right now. It's a new release from Nightmare - which can be picked up at the main store - and it's cute with the top and bra combination. The Bra comes in a few different colours, and the tops have varying things written on them, many of them labels for MC members, such as President, Sgt@Arms and Prospect. I've asked Nightmare's owner if there will ever be a Secretary one added because well, that's the one I really need, but for now being labelled an asshole works because it makes me laugh! Many people would probably agree with it! I'm hoping there are at least a few that wouldn't?! 
Plus it's really handy to show off all that extra space which would be perfect for a new tattoo... What should I get I wonder?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Rumor in Redhead 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tattoos: [White Widow] - Spotlight in Black 
Top & Bra: Nightmare - Cryst Top Set 
Jeans: WONDERLOST - Donna Bell Bottom Jeans (Available until June 25th at Vintage Fair
Pose: Image Essentials - Vogue 4 (Available until June 24th at Jersey Shore

Fairytale Poetry

Mirror Mirror on my Blog, 
I'm peeking through the strange blue fog.
Trying to see the Doll today, 
she's brutally scarred and bloody, hooray. 
A Crown of Belial upon her dead head, 
a dirty face mask that's soaked in blood red. 
This Living Dead Doll's a Zombie Queen, 
looking back at me from my PC Screen. 
I know, I know I got a little creative today, but for some reason while I was editing this picture, it became a little bit of a fairytale in my mind... I couldn't help it, my mind just ran away with me. 
It started with the amazing new wounds released by CUREMORE in the Scar Tissue Gacha. It's a collection with some amazing new facial wounds - which I HAD TO HAVE - plus eyes, wounds for the body and hands and the dirty looking masks too... It was hard to choose which I wanted to share here, so I went for an eye scar, cheek scar, some allergic eyes and a mask - but rest assured this isn't going to be the last time you see this set mentioned! 
It was the addition of the Crown of Belial - a Nightmare Release for the current round of Suicide Dollz - that sparked the seeds of Fairytale Villain in my mind. 

What is she wearing;
Crown: Nightmare - Crown of Belial (Available until June 25th at Suicide Dollz
Hair: Truth - Wind in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Eyes, Facial Scars & Mask: Curemore - Scar Tissue Gacha Items 
Pose: Image Essentials - Vogue 2 (Available until June 24th at Jersey Shore

Pandora's Box for June!

Last month saw the opening of the very first Pandora's Box, and it was awesome when the box did finally open... BUT that wasn't a one time thing... This month the box will open again. 
On June 22nd, the Loot Box that is Pandora's Box will once again open to reveal some awesome goodies for those of you that love the Alternative lifestyle. This month it's all about MONSTERS!!! YES MONSTERS!!! I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED I CANNOT WAIT!!!!! 
If you want the Loot Box though, now is the time to start thinking about it... Until June 22nd sign ups for the box will cost 1500L, but after this date the price will go up... More details are listed below... 
How does Pandora's Box work? To get your hands on a Pandora's Box loot box, you pay a set amount of money - in the case of the Pandora's Box the initial amount is 1500L - and are able to join a group, which you need to remain a member of until the box is released on the 22nd of each month. Then on the 22nd of the month, if you're in the group, you will be sent your very own Pandora's Box filled with goodies from 10 different designers - that you can see listed in the picture above - and that's where the chance comes into play, because there's a chance you won't like things inside, but there's also a chance that you will LOVE everything in the box... Risk is, you won't know what you're getting till you get the box!!!!! Isn't it exciting?!
HOWEVER, if you decide you want to wait until things start being shown off by bloggers and designers alike, then you're able to do so... After the box is released on the 22nd of the month, the group will remain open - although the cost to join will increase to 2500L - and you will be able to get all the goodies inside! If this is your plan though you will need to hurry! On the 30th of each month, the group will be cleared and the whole process will start again for the coming month!! 
Sounds simple right? If you have more questions then you may want to check out the Pandora's Box Website, and then head on down to thePandora's Box HQ or one of the sponsoring stores to subscribe at the Pandora's Box Vendors or search for the Pandora's Box group in-world!!!
I'm really excited to see where this alternative loot box will take us and cannot wait to see the surprises inside!!!! Let's release those Monsters shall we?!
