I spent a whole week putting this particular look together and that is pretty rare for me since normally I can put a look together in a few minutes. I absolutely love anything that has to do with octopi. I saw this skirt on another blogger’s flickr stream, and she always has the most beautiful outfits put together her name is Harleyquinn Constantine and this is her blog. I knew that the hair I had received from Koy would be perfect for this look. I believe its the perfect unisex hairstyle. And it comes in a variety of hair colors. But if you are like me you should totally fatpack it because then you will have all the colors.
I finally went to Collabor88 this month, and I noticed that The Secret Store had several different versions of the top that I wanted to grab. So I grabbed a corset version in red because I knew it would go perfectly with my skirt. As I was shopping in Collabor88 I received a group notice from N-Core stating that they had a new pair of shoes as a group gift. I ran and got my lovely new shoes.
I was smiling at myself because I had attained a pretty rocking rockabilly look unintentionally. As you can see I am wearing a hand tattoo which is by Moon Amore, the place where I also got my skirt, I loved the unique beauty of how the octopus was laid out on the hand. This particular hand tattoo comes in a pack of 3 tattoos called the “Waves Pack”. Now Moon Amore is a new store to me and from what I see its still in its beginning phases but it has a lot of potential. If you are into kawaii items it is the perfect place to go. I should mention that the skirt is texture changing via a hud so there are multiple textures available for you to wear. Not to mention the prices are pretty affordable. I also picked up a freckles tattoo layer that I can’t wait to try out soon.
Oh hello there! So I figured I’d ask before I rabble beyond control on the following picture collages? Do you think I should quit with the collages and do separate posts for each look (blog post) or continue with this style so that I don’t inundate you with my pictures galore.
Just in case you are wondering, I am often called “Pocket Lola” by friends due to my size in SL. I love to dress in different styles but often find myself caught between gothic and kawaii. In this post I will like to showcase to you some of the looks I put together, I know its a long post put I promise not to ramble.
At this past Skin Fair I was able to pick up the following items: .tsg. Eun-Seo Shape and .tsg. Eun-Seo X tone skin. I am also wearing the following throughout all pictures: .tsg. Tintable Blush , .tsg. Luminate – Hazel eyes, and Slink AvEnhance Hands Female – Splayed.
The Kawaii Cutie
Thanks to stores like .tsg., Blah!, and more I see myself gravitating towards Kawaii Style with a bit Ero Style thrown in. I like pastel colors a lot and lately you can actually see me wearing pink in world which is a rarity. What I love about this look is how the perfect accessories can complete the outfit.

The Rockabilly Vixen
I have always had a soft spot for Rockabilly Fashion in my heart. I love how they mix vintage wear with their own flair. Although I do kind of look like a girl from the 60’s getting her nerd on.

The Sexy Rocker
To me this is how I would like to see myself on stage, a mix between Shakira and Santana from Glee. They both have such amazing looks and are beautiful in their own rights. I’m not a huge fan of animal prints but this outfit I put together seemed to meld well together. Goth1c0 has been a longtime favorite store of mine and I am so happy to see they are creating so many items lately.

The Gothic Beauty
This look basically revolved around the leggings I picked up at the Rock Attitude Fashion Fair by Malfean Visions. I swear I collect just about everything Lokii creates when I actually do wander outside my tiny box. I love how she is able to cover all fashion styles and still add a gothic edge to each item.

Today I’m focusing on two brands for this particular post. The first is the lovely skin by +Nuuna’s Skins+ and the other is the lovely partial mesh outfit from Sn@tch. Nuuna is known for her beautiful makeup tattoos and recently her skins have been garnering much needed acclaim. Nuuna has always been super talented. Even before she opened her store I loved her blog and the looks she created with each post. When she came out with a store, I bought a few things. But I always know if I want uniquely beautiful makeup I can go to her store. The skin I purchased at World Goth Fair during Blogger Preview Day was the exclusive version and it was pretty affordable at 300L. As for Sn@tch I think I have sang my praises of Ivey many of times on this blog. The outfit she has set out as a exclusive item is available in a gajillion colors as always.
Up first I’m going to give you a close-up of the corset and the wonderful skin. I am wearing another pair of eyes from RUE called princess. And I accented my outfit with accessories from Bliensen + MaiTai.
The outfit also comes with gloves and leather pants. I decided to wear my fave pair of heels with the outfit by N-Core, but you can wear a nice pair of boots with the outfit also.
One of the few stores I shopped at when I was beginning my phase of gothic lolita in SL was at Draconic Kiss I loved all her dresses and I loved that you could win them also in a lucky chair. Oh how I stalked that chair with a vengeance. The prices at Draconic Kiss were pretty reasonable and she was one of a handfull of EGL designers that gave items on all clothing layers. When sculpts became more prevalent in clothing, she dove head forward into creating lots of lovely sculpted items. She is not just a EGL designer she also designs some of the most rad costumes ever. For a while we hadn’t heard from the creator behind Draconic Kiss and then out of nowhere she released her first mesh dress. It was so beautiful with the floral designs on the skirt.
Now you are wondering…Hey Lola! quit with the yapping and show us some pictures already. So I will digress into my first picture. The first item being offered by Draconic Kiss is the Lillabeth Outfit that features a mesh corset and skirt that are menu driven by a hud. This particular item is a 100% donation item for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. I am always wearing the Black Widow Necklace which is a 50% donation to WGF.
This is an upclose picture of the texture work.
The last outfit is called “Wilted Blossoms” and is a 50% donation. This particular outfit is available in several colors. I love the floral detail on the dress. I am wearing the color “Putrid”.
Too late – this is not the answer
I need to pack it in
I can’t pull your heart together with just my voice alone
A thousand shards of glass I came to meet you in
You cut the peace out of me
I have always been a fan of Apocalyptica, and lately I have found myself being drawn to this song more and more over the past few weeks. I wasn’t going to share what I was going through but I figure what the heck. I lost my grandfather on the 28th of February due to several complication with Alzheimer’s Disease. All I knew was that the moment I found out the news I felt my heart break into pieces and what solidified it even more was taking a red-eye to New York only to find my Grandmother not dealing well with his loss.
So this post is in honor of my Grandparents and also how I feel at the moment. I knew I needed to do something more than just a fallen angel concept. I wanted to add more sorrow and pain to the image but without being overly traumatic.
From this picture I am attempting to show you the angels fall from grace, although I realized just now that I didn’t get a really great pic of the broken wings.
After fumbling over a look, I finally decided on this one. Skin is a favorite by Nomine, Roses by Glam Affair, Eyes & Body Tats by Chus, Facial Piercings by ni.ju, outfit and angel wings is from a new to me store called “X-plosion”.
So contrary to what many may think, NO Phire and I are not a couple in SL although we do take delight in our little crazy trists in blogging. So we are asking, all you SL men out there, would you take a chance with one of us and be our valentine? We are pretty and have a wide variety of clothes at our disposal to wear if you are willing to choose one of us. We do prefer that the both of us get dates even if it is just for one night. Phire is East Coast time and Lola is SL Time. We are both American girls with a rather interesting sense of humor.
And here is another picture to help you make your decision.
I bet you are wondering which one is Lola and which one is Phire. Well its pretty obvious. I really tried hard to look like Phire but I just can’t do it lol, so I’m the one with the short dress & curvy body and spiked headband. Phire is the tall and slender woman with a nice caboose.
I leave you with a rather interesting video from Ukraine. You are welcome ❤
