I am dominated by one thing, an irresistible, burning attraction towards the abstract.

So let’s see what events we have hiding in this post tonight… Got some Tres Chic, good good… some Sanarae, always a plus… N21, always a fav.. and the money taking Epiphany!… Yes it’s been open for a while and it’s still kicking. Just when I thought I looked at every gacha there, apparently I seem to always miss one.. And I usually like the one I missed. XD
Please do bare with me as I slowly get back in touch with my sexy side.. It’s something I’m not good at in real life and it’s definitely transferring into secondlife. XD I swear it can be hard to be asexual sometimes, I be losing those connections with my photos because my tuchus keeps blushing. Gotta get out of them comfort zones sometimes though right? Can’t stay afraid of everything forever… >. < Even though it’s easier too.
Alrighty, lets break down how LumiPro was used this time shall we? When it comes to the lines on my arms, Lumi plays a big part to adding shine to my body and not me PSing it in. I really suck at adding body lighting lines, I try but I can’t really grasp it. Since the sign in the back is red neon, I decided to add a red lighting to shine on me so I could blend in better with the background. I hope that helps understand some how much lighting can help in a picture. I’m still learning myself so we can learn together! Wishing you happy shopping. ♥

LUMIPro was used in this picture to make it so I can still show the detail in the shoe. Sure I got shadows to work in my favor but it was also making the heels dark as well. XD So I added on the good ol LUMIPro lighting and had to make it subtle as ever just so I can still get the heels to pop. Just a little tip I thought I’d share.
A new round of Kinky just started and there is a special price on these heels I’m wearing. If you’d like them without the blood there’s always the originals there too. I couldn’t help that these bloody heels and me listening to Taylor Swift totally inspired this song. I don’t know the exact imagery the song was suppose to give but it totally gave me this when I first heard it. Best freaking time to come up with this idea since it’s ooooone more day til Halloween. This month was filled with a lot of inspirational items, don’t think my wallet has ever been so empty. I’m going to have some fun trying to blog everything I bought this month alone lol. It’s just gonna have to spill into November. XD
I think the one thing I like about this picture is that I can apply any kind of story to this picture. It could be a stripper who was jipped or a love deprived wife who caught her husband cheating… It could be so many things and I love that. X3 Wishing you happy shopping. ♥

I’ve been digging into my inventory lately, finding all old things and seeing if they have an update for it. Came across my cybernetic eye that I use to loooove shooting people with. Seriously, feeling like a one eye cyclops is like a comic nerd’s dream. Then watching Underworld and various movies that surprisingly have at least one character with changing eye colors; I didn’t want to detach it. X3 When you look at it far away it’s striking isn’t it? Like having one lycan eye. XD Ok enough showing my geek colors.
This whole set in the PocketGacha is giving me life though. I didn’t know whether to feel like the rainy blues or take a trip to the future. Sooo I decided to do both, I mean why else would I have a cybernetic heart? XD I had to get the old one replaced, memory was full. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
Every human walks around with a certain kind of sadness. They may not wear it on their sleeves, but it’s there if you look deep.

Just one of those days where a permanent cloud is hanging above my head. A day where it’s best to just stay to oneself until the crude clouds disperse. Why is everything so heavy?
On a positive note, I use to be a really big hunt whore back in the early days and would jump on any hunt I could find. Mainly because you learn about new places and stores, etc. Well this month there’s the Once Upon a Nightmare hunt, man did it make me feel young again. I’m only like halfway done but I am loving everything I am getting. Which is pretty rare, don’t let the others tell you any different! Makes me want to get back into hunting a bit more often but with how I sleep I need a long duration hunt like this one. I’m really glad it’s bringing people back to designers mainstores and out of events. Not that events are bad but mainstores need just as much love. ♥
There’s also a new round of The Trunk Show that started earlier this month on the 19th. I swear this event just makes me want to get married but that’s not written in the stars for my SL unfortunately. However, I can just crash someone’s random wedding going on. (I kid, of course.) Bust in on some of them photos, make a person ask ‘who’s that?’ lol
A big thanks to Funky Banana for sharing the place and a huge thank you to Salt & Pepper for still having the sim there. lol You know how hard it is to find places that actually stay in SL? Sometimes frustrating because of how lovely the decor is. XD Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
Fashion is the only game you can win by breaking the rules.
Here is my little announcement of GizzA getting ready to start over basically, in case you didn’t already know. All the items shall be retired as the designer starts anew with the brand name GIZ SEORN. Apparently if you join before the sale is done there is a surprise awaiting inside the group. If I did my math right, tomorrow is the end of the sale or the last day, depending on how he does it. So if you haven’t already taken advantage of the 50-75% sale at GizzA you better round up and hurry!
With that being said, the one event that makes me have to pull my money out fast and in a hurry if I don’t want to miss out on something big… Limit8. This white backdrop is a limit8 exclusive, oh yes the limit is so on. Mind you there is the other option to buy the non limited colorful edition with 5 colors. But if you wanted this white one, I hope you beat the rush. Best part is it being land impact light, with my little land that’s very important to me lol. I can’t do sandboxes all the time. XD Actually now that I think about it I think I need to go back to Limit8 real quick… Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!
– Percy Bysshe Shelley
Full bloom is here in this picture it could almost make you weep. 😉 After a bit of sponsor love I wanted to revisit my autumn home and show it a little bit more lovings. (Thinking of changing it again soon.) See, lookie there I even cut a heart into a leaf to show my love for the Fall season. I just wish my house heat would keep me warm when I run out of tea. X3
Howeva! In SecondLife I feel no chill so let the my dress have holes! ♥ Makes it feel more like a knitted sweater to me, that and the texturing. Speaking of texturing, have you seen the texture on this dress?! Don’t let the render ads shoo you away from a really good dress. I’ve seen recently more people don’t want to buy ads that are rendered. All I have to say to that is DEMO! As long as there is a demo there’s no reason to complain. I can never stress enough to demo everything I’m wearing and I do mean everything. I can preach the quality but it all comes down to your own tastes. ♥
Okay, so, dress aside let’s talk about this wig of mine. It’s been patiently sitting in my inventory waiting for me to blog it. I have to say it’s one of my favorite hairs I really love cute bobs! And this one just lifts my spirits up. I could not wait to frame it on my blog.
I just realized how much I just typed your eyes off to read but I’m going to try something different from now on. Get back to my old blogging roots of when I started back on curvethedulce. I’m going to highlight 2-3 items per blog post from now on. Sort of give a spotlight to some items that really helped me create a look. I’m also hoping it gives an interesting read as well. lol I hope everyone enjoys this change as much as I will typing it. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥

Alright, first before anything else lemme just gush about these nails at Tres Chic. Now I’ve always missed having mix match designs on my nails instead of a full set of the same design. Well these nails have the option to do your hands and feet with a color mix! To me it’s a step in the right direction for random nails and I love it. With that being said, how goes everyone’s Epiphany gambling? I’m trying to hold off as long as I can until next paycheck but I reaally want to try a couple of them. It’s going to be a long stretch for anyone to sell extras in yardsales. lol So I’m pretty much gonna have to play… man I hope these gachas are nicer. XD Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
