Runic Necklaces and Punk Rock Hair

None gave me bread, none brought a horn.
Then low to earth I looked.
I caught up the runes, roaring I took them,
And fainting, back I fell.

-Odin’s Rune Song, author unknown

So *paper moon* had a lovely necklace at We ❤ RP which is now in their store- the Runic Necklace.  I was going to finally get around to babbling about it and lo and behold, there was new hair from Exile.  Continue reading

Spiderweb Ascot suit from Paradoxical!

Just in time for your Halloween needs, Paradoxical has a new design out: the Spiderweb Ascot suit. here’s a pic…

I just love it!  Fully mesh, and meticulously done textures really make it sing.

The suit’s available at the Halloween Hellraiser party that Paradox Messmer (yes, the designer for Paradoxical) is organizing; it’s a fundraiser event for the Mental Health America charity, which helps folks who have mental illness. So you’re not only getting a nice seasonal suit but you’re also helping out those in need.

The event is a a 2 day party with 10 DJs playing from 12pm noon-10pm SLT each day both Saturday (oct 18th) and Sunday (Oct 19th) and there will be exclusive Halloween-themed goodies from 16 great designers: Madrid Solo, Faster Pussycat, Vero Modero, Death Rocker Bettie Crocker, Goth1c0, Razor and more, with 50% of sales of these items going to the cause.
The event is going on at Terre des Mortes Saturday and Sunday, so you should stop by and see what tickles your fancy: with a suit like this available, I’m sure there’s going to be some other lovely stuff- and I KNOW the DJs will be great fun!

Here’s another shot of the suit in a less cool tone of light:

Echo Beach, Far Away in Time (yes, two posts in a few hours!)

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I’m an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I’ll be back at Echo Beach some day

So Paradoxical is the shop of someone I’ve known inworld for years, Paradox Messmer (whose blog is over here).  He’d done a promo image recently for a new top he came up with (he’s only done just a few items, and he’s already texturing things this well!), and I was saving up my pennies, so he threw me a copy of the top. It’s named Solaris: it made me want to go wander on the beach in the afternoon.

I really love the way he’s gotten such a solid knit texture baked into the thing- and it really hangs nicely, too. Good stuff, and hey, at L$150, isn’t it worth a shot?
You can find his marketplace shop here (and yes, there are demos!).

Additionally, this is my 201st post on this blog: I am surprised the anniversary snuck up on me so thoroughly!
