The Beauty of Roses

Published May 4, 2014 by lola79hienrichs

Roses have been revered throughout time as a symbol of love and mystery. As I was traipsing through Fantasy Faire 2014, I noticed this beautiful maiden. She invited me into her humble abode and began to dress me as royalty. I was so ecstatic because I was only a humble servant who was never treated to such luxuries.

As the day continued, she had me repeat these sayings over and over. I was unsure what she was doing but I eventually caught on. She had realized that there was something different with me, I had untapped powers that I had never knew of. My powers were drawn from nature so she began to teach me a few spells.

The Beauty of Roses
Here I am wearing items from stores I have never heard of : .aisling. and Sweet Lies. The lovely crown was prepared by .aisling. and the beautiful dress was prepared by Sweet Lies. Using the medallion necklace from [AZE] Jewelry designs as my talisman, I was able to control my power and I surrounded myself with rose petals from nearby rose bushes.

The Beauty of Roses
I was amazed at what I had done, and lo and behold the people of the court began bowing to me. The maiden who had pampered me had announced that I was the saviour that was foretold in legends past. I was a little taken back by the news but I knew better than to question the legends in front of the people of the court.

The Beauty of Roses
I had also curtsied back to the people of the court as a sign of respect and also to accept their trust. Once the court was cleared, I had begun to interrogate the maiden. She showed me the books and in the books there was a drawing of a woman that looked just like me. I was mesmerized and frightened at the same time.

It had turned out that I was not a person born of the era, but I was a immortal being who had forgotten my memory and in the library there were several memoirs to help me regain my memory and also to relearn the spells I had once taken for granted.

The picture below was me playing around with windlight, I started off wearing the dress that jackal released as a RFL item at Fantasy Faire but this morning I decided to wear a different dress.
More releases @ World Goth Fair

I decided on a dress from a store that is new to me, ^v^DRBC^v^. I loved the texture work and it was sexy and worked well with the macabre jewelry set.

Last but not least, I need to talk about this skin. Really fellow goths on my plurk timeline how have I not ever heard of this store. Faerycat Designs created one of the most beautiful gothic skins and you can purchase lipsticks seperately. I went for a more classic gothic look and used one of the dark red colors with lip liner. Also, I can’t forget about the appliers for SLINK hands and feet. I had to play with my new SL mesh hands now and I finally was able to with the skin applier hud. I threw on some nails from Kosh to finish my look.

Sn@tch & Nuuna’s Skins @ World Goth Fair

Published May 26, 2013 by lola79hienrichs

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.

Draconic Kiss @ World Goth Fair

Published May 21, 2013 by lola79hienrichs

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”.

:{MV}: at World Goth Fair

Published May 16, 2013 by lola79hienrichs

So about a month ago I discovered :{MV}: aka Malfean Visions owned by Lokii Violet. I was so excited to find a new goth store with a ton of amazing items. I loved how all her creations intermingled with each other. What I really lusted for were her boots and shoes. I mean this lady makes some sexy shoes and boots. And well since I like to hoard I welcomed them to inventory wholeheartedly.

There are three special outfits set out as exclusive items at WGF. I am going to showcase all of them. And yes this post is going to be picture heavy since I also wanted to showcase the lovely skin by Voshie Paine for la petite morte. Voshie has 6 makeup versions for the ophelia skin line and the 6th makeup version is an exclusive version for WGF.

First up is the Isabella Dress. I chose the color Vitae because it sounded all kinds of exotic to me. Lo and behold it was a beautiful dark red color. I love the lace piping detail on the bodice and the intricate fabric detail. I especially loved the skirt, it reminded me of the styles of skirts that are currently in right now, the high/low skirts.
:{MV}: at World Goth Fair
So this is the closeup. You can get a better view of the top and the amazing posture collar that you can also purchase at
:{MV}: booth.

The second outfit is the Bad Habit Dress. This dress is a strapless tube dress with wonderful texture work. It features a upside down crucifix as a design on the bottom of the dress so I pulled out one of my fave makeups from Sn@tch to match the dress. The dress is short and sexy and shows a fun playful side with just a splash of color. The texture work is amazing as always.

Now is the up-close version so you can see the makeup and the texturing on the dress.

Last but not least is the Hallows Dress. This outfit comes with a underbra corset and a posture collar along with a lovely pair of boots. I loved how beautiful the pieces worked together and I didn’t have a hard time fixing things to my size (i.e. the prim skirt). I loved the rich colorful texture work and I can’t believe but Lokii got me to wear pink items 2 times in this post LOL.

Plastik @ World Goth Fair

Published May 15, 2013 by lola79hienrichs

One of the things I love about Aikea, creator behind the brand Plastik, is her ability to create lovely gothic skins and clothing to match. So its not a surprise that she is involved with World Goth Fair. In this post I’m showcasing her new skin, new tanktop, and new dress. I accented the outfits with pieces from other stores that are also participating in World Goth Fair.

So…my face I wanted to keep it simple this time around but I wanted dramatic eye makeup. While walking around World Goth Fair I saw this beautiful makeup by mock cosmetics. The eyelashes from Kosh made it pop more but I decided to take them off during my tank top pics. The dress I am wearing in the below picture is called “Nadia – Ribs” and I love how it shows some skin to be sexy but leaves a little to the imagination. The necklace I chose to accent the look is from The Little Bat and its a 50% donation item for WGF.
Plastik @ World Goth Fair

So this is the full body look. I thought it would be fun to use the cloud by for a more dramatic picture. See alot of people think that goths are all doom and gloom and have this dark aura following them. So this goes out to you, for not really knowing what a goth truly is.
Plastik @ World Goth Fair

The last item I will be showing you is the “Mayalie Top – Muerte”. I chose muerte because I assumed it had to do with sugar skulls and I was right. I decided to pair up the top with pieces from :{mv}: because I felt they added to the aesthetic of the tank top. This time around I am wearing a necklace by Draconic Kiss, one of my fave Gothic Lolita stores in SL.

The last picture is a closeup of the tank top and the eyemakeup. I am also wearing eyes from RUE and they are amazing!

Adoness & Beautiful Freak @ World Goth Fair

Published May 14, 2013 by lola79hienrichs

It is that time of year when us goths get to revel in all the new designs from our favorite designers as well as discover new designers. World Goth Fair has been around in SL for a few years and it is scheduled to open its doors on the 15th of May. The charity that benefits from this event is the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. If you are not familiar with the back-story I’ll give you a brief summary. Sophie, a goth, was living in London and one day a group of teenagers decided to beat her and her friend to death, just because they were perceived as goth. This is a huge issue in Europe and our donations can help those in need who have been afflicted by such beatings.

So let me divulge into the awesomeness I have been able to grab so far. I have a beautiful dress from adoness, its a classic victorian dress that is perfect for steampunk RP. Adoness also has 2 jewelry sets available but I am only showcasing the diamond set, there is also ruby available at her booth.

In the above pic, I accented the face with makeup and eyes that are to be released by Beautiful Freak at World Goth Fair. I swear there are a ton of colors to choose from and I love the doodle effect around the eyes.

Last but not least a full view of the dress. You can see how beautiful the texturing is and a portion of the hoop skirt.
