Horror (Haute) Movie Character

This week's meme was to recreate a movie character in SL.  It is also the beginning of this month's Horror Haute and the theme is Japanese horror.  So, of course, I had to recreate the character of one of my very favorite horror movies, The Ring.

This was made easy because Botanica Diabolique has the TV for sale at Horror Haute for only 99L!  Add to that Stargazer's Yurei Ghost skin and The Stringer Mausoleum's Deep Well Eyes, and you have the makings for a wonderful Samara.

I couldn't find just the right hair for her, so I ended up Photoshopping hair in front of her face.  Hairmakers!  We need a nice Samara hair!

Meet Me on the Bridge

She used to be able to tell stories, to remember her childhood, and to laugh at the jokes her friends would tell her.  That was before she met the killer on the bridge.  From a distance, the killer looked fairly normal, but as she moved closer, she began to feel it - that sense of dread and fear - when its too overwhelming to run but every molecule in your body wants to get away.  Those white glowing eyes sent a chill down her spine that she would never forget.  The cold stare cut through her mind like a freezing wind and took all the warmth from her soul.  She was never the same after that.  After the encounter on that bridge.

Inspiration Recreation

A few days ago, Arora Zanzibar issued a blogger challenge to recreate one of a series of photos.  A couple years ago, she recreated a photo that I posted on Plurk.  So, here is my recreation of one of her photos!

Blogger's Challenge - January

This was really fun!  I just used some things I had already in my inventory and then made the pose.  If anyone else wants to recreate this photo, the pose is available for free in my shop, Dimma.

Butterfly Says Be Quiet

Butterfly Says Be Quiet

Tintable things are the best thing ever.  This new dress by +Blue Blood+, for example, is totally tintable, as are my eyebrows.  And, one of the benefits of buying white hair in SL is that I can make it almost any color I want.  Yeah. I cheat.

Anyway, today was a day for events.  You definitely should go to Genre.  There are tons of great deals, and it's not crowded at all.  And Cari McKeenan, owner of The Little Branch (and creator of the beautiful weeping willow behind me) was so sweet to me.  It's nice getting a thank you IM from a designer.  You can find her season changing willow trees at Genre for only 99L.

* Lyrics from Buffy, the Musical

Leaf on the Wind

Leaf on the Wind is a fund raiser for one of my Plurk friends, Scarlet Chandrayaan (owner of Alouette), Amy in RL. She is battling cancer, at only 26 years old, and has a dream to visit London. LotW's goal is to help her get there.  Amy is a sweetheart, and I hope you will support her dream.


I used to live in London. It's one of my very favorite cities (and I've been to a lot of cities). I was an Eastender for awhile, in East Ham, then lived in West Hampstead. I would walk to my job off Oxford street from West Hampstead along Abbey Rd. and cross the street right where the Beatles crossed on the cover of their album.  I did that every Tuesday.  I loved everything about London, but I did have to eventually go back home. I hope Amy can have as wonderful an experience as I had. There is so much to do and see.


When you go to London, Amy, go to the museums, shop on Oxford street, eat greasy food at a cafe, drink a pint in a pub, see a West End show, ride the Tube and a double decker bus, and ask around to see if anyone wants to hire me. I'd move back in a red hot minute.


Oh, and don't forget, they drink their tea with milk over there, and they take their tea very seriously.  I've never had tea as good as when I was in London.  My thoughts are with you, Amy.  I know you'll get there.

Back to Dead

I can't stay out of the dark for long. I belong in the dark. In dark corners. In hallways that go on forever.  Hiding. Blending in.

Back to Dead

I would rather be invisible, unseen, and free.

Back to Dead

Hide me away. I don't like the light.

When I was in high school, I avoided cameras so much that the only picture of me in the yearbook my senior year was from the half time at a football game.  I twirled a rifle in the band.  In the photo, I was lying on the grass while a sousaphone player stepped over me.  It was an action shot.  I think I'm the only one who knows that was me lying on the grass. 

Cameras are easier to deal with when you're an avatar.  Sometimes.  That SL smile, though *shakes head*.  I think it makes for a perfect awkward yearbook photo.  So, here is my contribution to Strawberry Singh's yearbook challenge.

School Portrait

School PortraitMy trick for the second life smile is to take two pictures. One without the smile, and one with the smile. Then I layer the smile on top in Gimp. I erase the smiling squinty eyes so that the non-smiling normal eyes show through. It makes for a bit of a less awkward smile.   I used the anypose HUD (like Berry).  It's a very handy thing to have.

Another trick is to catch a picture of that halfway point between smiling and not smiling. I did that in this photo on the left, but I felt like the bigger smile was a bit more yearbook-like.

My memories of high school were not good.  I do sometimes miss tossing that rifle up in the air, though.
