Side Quest: This is my nature, to nurture.

[[Oh, pure innocence, how you once crowned my skull and left me wondering of simpler things. These blossoms once virginal, though always beautiful – now symbolize a death to befall us all. And now the darker realms I roam; forever seeking to sate an appetite to a carnal core. Such is a clean slate now marked by wanton ink that delves to the bone. Some may even say my blood is tainted by the trials I’ve endured, but alas I strive on to take on this world and the next. These wastelands with apocalyptic geists are outside my window, while I wait to reach another high.]]

So in this Side Quest issue, I was very much inspired by the mundane of nature and its clash with the modern world. Such an artistic scene is very popular in the video game and animation pop culture, so of course I thought, why not. To start off my fashion exhibit, some focal points are the ‘nature’ pieces I used: firstly that from an up and coming designer by the name of Iskra Bellic, owner of {INDOcile}. I was very much humbled with the opportunity to bring her creations into my world and in turn, show them all to my audience. The Mystikal Staff in Silver (shown above) is also available in Gold, and can be found on her marketplace here. While her collection is small, I personally sense a lot of potential to flood forth and for us to see lots more in the near future. I always get giddy of that aspect and hope all of you are as well. Secondly, are the head and mouth pieces from a Japanese shop by the name of *NAMINOKE, owned by Taiko McCaw. Available at the Depraved Nation: Luck Of The Irish Gacha Fair, you too can add these adorable creations to your own ensemble. Other events featured are that of [Bodify], which is where you’ll find my naughty little Gettin’ Handy Garter by the lovely Scarlett Loxingly, owner of The Scarlett Letter; there is also a new round of Suicide Dollz (a bi-weekly event) open in which you can find [geek.]‘s Got Capped Collars, available in 8 different colours. The Big Show definitely has its own audience, considering The Boobie Show and The Azz Show are now all in one glorious package. And not to forsake the men and uni-sex seeking readers, The Men’s Dept. has also re-opened its doors for the month of March with an array of discounted clothing, hair, accessories, and then some to suit everywhere from top quality creators all across the grid. Now to bring attention to one Fair that I attempted to avoid, but couldn’t and am glad I didn’t: The Skin Fair 2014! And the winner winner for me is the beautiful new Romy skin by none other than -Glam Affair-. I cannot even begin to express the beauty of this skin, with all the unique styling options with the available eye, eyebrows, lipsticks, and nose palates exclusively available at the Skin Fair. And a little treat is that -Glam Affair- has finally released beautiful Loudmouth appliers with an array of lipsticks to cater each skin tone! Ah, it is all so wonderful, but be forewarned there are 3 sims of skin designers all connected – so, with so much talent gathered in one spot, be sure to choose your look wisely! Expect me to be showing off this skin for many posts to come. But in the meantime, I expect you all to be hopscotching across these events and enjoying yourselves!

Side Quest: Real badasses eat chocolate chip cookies!

[[With our salvation in turmoil, we pray our days to survival and the good graces of luck. Skill is indeed innate, so the free-for-all will take its toll, and perhaps the exhaustion will reset our minds to being benevolent creatures. I walk this planet, fending off abominations whether they wear a monster or human mask; most lack any heart. But a settlement shall keep me grounded and perhaps I’ll find out if I am the hero or the villain.]]

So, it was bound to happen: my wandering back to my roots of blogging my take on modern fashion attire inspired by my view of games, writing-muse, and of course, music. [geek.], C h a r y., [Pumpkin], and -UtopiaH- have definitely aided in attire or accessories when I feel SecondLife Gorean Evolved rules and regulations just aren’t my cup o’ tea. So, in this issue I am introducing my ‘Side Quests‘, which will enable me to traverse all the realms of SL and in turn showcase a myriad of styles. But do not fret, The Red Witch will always remain, and I am sure a lot of my loyal readers will take notice of how there will always be a sliver of Her in any plane. On to the news: Depraved Nation‘s Luck Of The Irish Gacha Fair has begun, featuring an amazing selection of designers and creations for you to partake in. As per all of their events, their organization and collaboration never fails to impress my eyes and want of style.
