Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time

The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama
But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma
And then the world moves on, but one thing’s for sure
Maybe I got mine, but you’ll all get yours

Oh, look what you made me do.

Sometimes I come up against things in SL that make me retaliate by pushing the envelope even fucking more, and this week has been no exception. In fact, just 30 minutes before I started writing this post, I was the recipient of homophobic abuse in a large group chat. And you know what that brings on, right?

ALL THE FUCKING MAKEUP AND HEELS.

Okay, I had it all on anyway, but eh. How apropos, right?

Let us begin, my sartorial darlings, with the eyes in the pic above. (That is, if you can tear yourself away from my eye-scratchin’ fingernail. Sorry to say that polish is no longer available, but we’ll move onto accessories in a bit.)

The eyes are the Enchanted Eyes by Avi-Glam. I’m wearing the silvery-grey pair from Pack 3. These eyes come in Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega versions, and they also include a pair of mesh eyes and Avi-Glam’s own applier. Note that, with the Catwa and Lelutka HUDs you can change the colour of left and right eyes independently of each other. Here’s a quick screenshot of all three Catwa HUDs:

Moving onto the hair, and once again I’m having a [Bad Hair Day] (and honestly, I love the fact that all this glorious mussed hair comes from a store named exactly that!) with this style called Kalon. I’m using the reds HUDs here, both for the base colour and the tinting, but you can mix and match any HUDs from any colour packs that you buy.

And, volte-face, we have the Hairbase02, also from [BAD HAIR DAY]. This comes in tintable Catwa and Omega appliers as well as tintable tattoo layers, and you get three versions: one each with the cutout on left or right side, and one with it on both sides:

Yeah, I know you’re here for the bitch heels. You’re always  here for the bitch heels, aintcha? Revel, my darlings, for they are GLORIOUS and made just for boys.

They’re the simply-named Men Boots  by Cubura, who also have another pair of male-only heels in their Marketplace store. They come in fits for Adam, Slink, Signature, and TMP. You have no fucking idea  how happy I am to have these. And no, they’re not just black; they include a several-colour HUD, for those of you that aren’t Princes of Darkness, or whatever ;-)

Piercings by Cerberus Xing. These are old favourites, in single mesh pieces, so they’re a doddle to manually edit to fit. The harness is part of an outfit by Gabriel, and the shirt is from a rare (oh yes, I struck the jackpot on that one) gacha fatpack by Boys To The Bone. Not sure if it’s still available, since it was out at one of the main menswear events a few months ago.

And, of course, I needed fishnets and hotpants to finish this one off. Some tricksy fiddling with the Slink Physique body HUD let this one work. Fishnets from [email protected]’s fabulous 2016 Omega applier collection on the tattoo layer, then my beloved Second Skin Leather Pants  Omega applier (also by [email protected]) on the underwear layer, set to mask (otherwise the fishnets vanish thanks to SL’s good ol’ alpha glitch) and with the leg visibility clicked off, so only the ‘shorts’ section shows.

But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I’ve got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!
