I'm just not able to get into the Christmas spirit this year, so I decided to apply for Grinch school. It turns out you get assigned your own personal, um, thingie, like the one from :{MV}: - the Saint Reaper Statue.

Grinch in Training

He taught me all the Grinch tricks.  Now, I just need to put antlers on my dog.

It's the Grinch training, probably, that makes me like wreaths with bats.  If you're like me, and prefer your holidays dark and scary, head over to -= FORSAKEN =- for some Twisted Krissmuss goodies.  They make perfect gifts because they're transferable, and batty.  They have biohazard bat necklaces in numerous colors, the "key to the beyond" necklace featured above, a crazy/awesome Christmas visor, and batty Christmas wreaths.

Purely Angelic Winter



The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tyrant spell has bound me
And I cannot, cannot go.

The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow.
And the storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.


Clouds beyond clouds above me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
But nothing dear can move me;
I will not, cannot go.

~ Emily Bronte

I Have a New Favorite Tattoo Shop

I've spend the last 2 1/2 years in SL looking for the perfect tattoo.  In that process, I've gathered lot of tattoos:

Tattoos that are just right are really hard to find, and don't get me wrong, I have a lot of really amazing tattoos.  But, I was really excited to find a new shop called Cannibelle owned by Annabelle Couturier.  Her tattoos are really well done.  They're not too dark, not too light, not too much, and not too little.  I feel sort of like Goldilocks when she found just the right porridge.


Here I'm showing you my favorites, the first on the left is the Yva tattoo, which was a group gift.  The middle tattoo is called the Joan tattoo.  It comes in black & white or full color with faded and fresh options.  The tattoo on the right is called the Danika tattoo.  It is one of those bright, happy kind of tattoos and it comes in faded and fresh options in black and white only.

Annabelle also makes lingerie, and I am wearing a new release called Agnes.  It comes in a number of light colors and is only 59L per set and only 249L for a fatpack of six colors.

This is why I'm a scrooge

I'm not feeling the holiday spirit this year.  In fact, I'm a bit of a scrooge.  If I had a choice, I'd just skip the whole holiday season, but there are some awesome things going on that keep me from turning into an axe murder.  For example:

This hunt runs from December 1st to the 31st and all proceeds benefit Relay for Life.  There are two paths - a human path and a hybrid path.  If you want to go on the human path, start at -=Forsaken=- and make a $100L donation to the RFL kiosk at the entrance.  From there, you will get a badge that will allow you to get ALL the hunt prizes from that path.  There are 83 stores on the human path and 62 stores on the mutant path (which starts at Pop Tart and Urban Assault -- SLURL)

-=Forsaken=- has this "Epic bat of skull smashingness" as their hunt gift.  It's probably a good idea to pick it up for this hunt.  You'll probably need it.

This is why I'm a scrooge

-=Forsaken=- is also participating in the A Very Scary Christmas Hunt.   Now, that is my kind of hunt!  You can get this Stabby Cane for absolutely free.  The hunt runs from December 1st to the 31st.  
This is why I'm a scrooge

I really hate it when that happens!

Another hunt to look forward to is a mini hunt at JeSyLiLo.  Just look for the letters hidden around the shop spelling out J e S y L i L o.  There are skins, tattoos, clothes, and even shoes there for free!

This is why I'm a scrooge

Now, I know what you're thinking at this point.  "Isabeal, those boots!  OMG!  They're kick ass!" And you're absolutely right.  They are!  They're a new release from -=Forsaken=-, and they are awesome.  I might never take them off.

Kick ass boots!

To blog or not to blog

I am really thankful for all the wonderful designers in SL and for all the hard (and often under-appreciated/under-paid) work they do.  As a blogger, I can only do my little bit to support them by my purchases and perhaps some promotion via the feeds.  I blog in the hopes that someone else will see something from my post, think it is as cute as I do, and go out and support the creator.

To blog, or not to blog

So, I want to give an extra special thank you to the following creators who are responsible for this look:

I made the shape.  If you absolutely love it and want to buy it, send me an IM.  I'll sell it to you cheap.  :-)

What the

Have you ever seen something out of the corner of your eye, and when you turned to look, it was gone?  You swear it was a monster, or a gargoyle that moved, or maybe a ghost.  Maybe it was just a trick of the light.  Maybe you didn't really see anything at all.

What the?

Have you ever caught your reflection in a window and didn't recognize yourself?  It's nice when you think, "Wow, she's gorgeous!  Oh, wait, that's me!"

What the?

But what if those two phenomenon happen at the same time?  You see a reflection, and it's a strange version of you, but you also see something else - something sinister or dangerous.  It's following you, and you don't know why.  You can only catch it out of the corner of your eye, then it goes away.

What the?

Here is another beautiful dress from Kouse's Sanctum.  Winter is coming where I live, but this dress makes me think of sunshine.

by Emily Brontë

The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tyrant spell has bound me
And I cannot, cannot go.

The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow.
And the storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.

Clouds beyond clouds above me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
But nothing dear can move me;
I will not, cannot go.

I've only been wearing this dress by Tres Blah for Collabor88 for a week, and I've only been wanting to blog this dress for a week, but I haven't had the time.  It's one of maybe two pink dresses I own, and I love it.  Yes, I know it's all been blogged to death, and I know I might have a bit of a reputation for being anti-pink, but you know what?  I don't care.  :-P


BTW, these Meredith glasses by Artilleri are EXACTLY like my RL glasses.  I get all kinds of compliments on them in RL.  I love it when my worlds cross.

Vampire Slayer

Bare Rose is having a small hunt, and this vampire slayer outfit is the prize (along with the Mesh necklace).  The hunt will only take you a few minutes to complete.  It was really fun.

At the end of the hunt, you have to slay the vampire. Don't worry, he's not very fast.

Happy Halloween

My favorite holiday.  I will be so sad on Tuesday when it is all over.

Happy Halloween

Don't eat too much candy (as if there is such a thing).

Did you know that the fears of poison candy are based on urban legends?  Check out the Urban Legends Reference Page.  It's not candy that is going to get the kids.  It's ZOMBIES!  Seriously.  Think about it.  Why DOES the CDC have a preparedness plan for a zombie apocalypse?  I think they're not telling us something.

Happy Halloween

That's OK.  I have my zombie kitteh to protect me!

I never really wanted to be part of a reality TV show, but somehow, I ended up here.  After seeing the horrors, experiencing the most frightening moments of my life, I think I'm going to make it out.  I'm so relieved!  Now, that's the door I came in, so....

Sad Vamp

True Blood is one of my all time favorite shows, and I am fascinated by the tears of blood shed by the vampires - soulless creatures who feel pain, loss, and remorse.  I haven't seen realistic blood tears in SL until I found these by LuNi. They are beautiful. I haven't taken them off since I bought them.

It Wasn't a Dingo

She heard a cry in the dark.  What was there?  A pram, old and torn up.  And inside?  Yes, a baby.

She always thought about becoming a mother, even though it seemed so strange.

No.  Mothering was not for her.  Babies don't seem to like graveyards and swamps and horrible places.
She has other plans.

She's so tiny you might miss her.  Can you see her wings?

I caught her in a jar and took her home.  I think fairies like iPads.

Twisted Unseelie

If you've been living under a rock, you might not realize that the Twisted Hunt is going on now until the end of September.  The gifts, as always, are fantastic.  Here are just a couple:

Twisted Unseelie

The throne is from Lemons & Cream, the outfit from [LuNi], and the makeup from Sn@tch.

If you've never been on the Twisted Hunt, be prepared.  It has a reputation for being the hardest hunt on the grid.  You will want to be sure to join the group, and read my post "How to Hunt Without Driving Yourself (or Others) Crazy."

Good luck!  Here is a taxi to the starting point:  +DV8+
