~Noa at Enchanted Photopia~

While checking in on Facebook today, I saw this great youtube video posted for Enchanted Photopia.  I watched the entire video and was so inspired by it, I knew I had to go explore the place further.  What an incredibly magical place, full of vignettes featuring familiar animated movie characters and scenes.  Trust me, that description does not do this wonderful place justice.  At the very least watch the video…but it is very much worth the visit!

Enchanted Photopia was the perfect backdrop to try to capture my fun outfit; featuring the Noa dress from Sascha’s Designs.  The Noa dress is the latest release form Sascha’s…you have the choice of purchasing three separate HUDs and each has a choice of six different dress textures. I will show all three HUDs below.  The dress texture I am wearing in the first photo is from the Noa No.2 HUD…I really love the Sugar Skull feel of the graphic.

The Noa No.1 HUD has stripes, plaids, florals and paisleys…a great mixture with choices suitable for any occasion.
SAS - Noa No. 1 Dress

The Noa No. 2 HUD features Candy Skull designs that would be great for creating a very Retro Rocker or Kawaii look.

The Noa No. 3 HUD has a mixture of florals, plaid, a plain white and a celestial looking black pattern; a great mix to suit any style mood.

I styled my look a little more on the Kawaii side and chose the Sunday Hair (Rainbows) from+Spellbound+,  MARYJANE Wedges (Romance) from Reign, the {Turquoise} necklace and bangles from Ariskea (previously available for purchase at the 21 event), the Tiger lily ring from MG-Maxis Gossamer, and my fabulous nail appliers are from the new Romantic Sparks polish collection by ZOZ!  My incredible Immortal Eyes are the latest mesh eye release from Ikon…these eyes are just amazing!

~Cold November Rain~

Cold November Rain4

Oops!  She stayed way past bedtime at the Halloween Party last night and now she’s trudging home, through the rain, in her party clothes.  Good thing her adorable SEY Bat Cape is latex and she wore her Athor boots.  The umbrella she snagged on the way out the door is from Salt and the fabulous dress with the poof skirt is the first group gift from Auxiliary.

How Alice-inWonderland adorable is this Halloween Dress from AMERIE?!!  It matches perfectly with the equally adorable Pumpkin Bag from :SEY…BOTH are gifties from The Ghost of Halloween Hunt.  This hunt is an absolute blast to do…you search for the little ghosts that flit about and click on them for your prize…but beware…some of the apparitions are tricksters and you’ll end up with one on your head!!  I felt like a real Ghost Buster…so much fun hunting these little BOO monsters.

The swaggerific Halloween shoes (orange and black skull design with ankle socks!) are from *{ SeVered GarDeN }* on the Marketplace for the amazingly low price of 40L!!!  The fishnet stockings were part of an old group gift from N-core Design (free to join).

Her Etchaflesh Corset is Boudoir Fly…

LpD, Etchaflesh, Boudoir2

There are still several more days till Halloween…that means many more opportunities to get your haunt on!  Earlier I told you about the [Etchaflesh/Virtual Props] Trick and Treats Hunt; where you can score fabulous mesh corsets and/or pose/prop sets…AND you can go back everyday to do the hunt over to score another prize…WIN! (no group join required).  Sooo I went back and filled up my HUD with candy to cash in on this fabulous mesh corset; which you can see a bit better in the second pic.  I paired the corset with this delicious little plum colored, ruffled skirt (5L) from – Quintessência Store – on the Marketplace…and these HOT _Dietrish Nouveau_BLACK knee high boots from *ATHOR* (0L group gift/free to join).

Last week Precious Restless sent out a notice in the Boudoir Group (free to join) that there was a new member gift waiting for all their ghouls to grab…well this Wearable Giant Fly came along just in time…since my broom was in the shop for repairs.  Isn’t he fantastic?  I think I’ll call him Igor. ;p;p

Now, a girl can’t just get all dolled up with no place to go…so I headed straight for Journey to the Lost City which is the hauntingly spectacular build from Tymus Tenk and Truck Meredith…owners of the sublime Calas Galadhon sims.  If you haven’t been to these park sims…they are an absolute MUST SEE.  I can’t begin to tell you how incredibly detailed they are landscaped…Truck and Ty spend endless hours landscaping and decorating them for every season.  There is so much to explore and enjoy…and now they have this wonderful Halloween adventure…search for the golden idol in the castle and you will be admitted to the Lost City…just beware of the perils on the way!  I took my trusty Staff of Hatred from Wylde Arts ~WA~ on the Marketplace (not free, but half price @ 150L)…to cast dark rain on any rogue corpses.

I know you’re wondering how I keep my ethereal good looks…it is all thanks to this *Andrea Witch* skin and eyes from *LpD* (group gifts/free to join).  My lovely raven curls are the Halloween 2012 group gift (free to join) compliments of Dura.  My sparkly Glitter Skull earrings are another wonderful Halloween  (FREE/no group required) from [dirty.little.secret]…and the Witch necklace and witch hat are group gifts from NCParis (free to join).
