Grease Paint and Monkey Brains

Death is on the Midway 
Gambling with souls
Roulette on the wire 
Ace is in the hole
I sink beneath the feeling 
Moon is in my hands
A crooked wheel of Twenty-One
I just don't understand - NO!
Laugh - Yeah - Drown and Laugh
Your life is over 
Grease Paint and Monkey Brains - White Zombie


So did you notice that these pics are way better than usual? My wonderful and amazing friend Danne Guardian took them. I am so excited to not only get to do a pic with him (he's the creepy clown in the top image) but just love having him here on Macabre Beauty. If you are not already following Danne on Flickr be sure to pop over and show him some love.

So many great events this time of year, of course the Darkness Chamber Fair - Halloween is still in full swing and just a few days ago Trick or Treat Lane opened up at Dark Passions Events. Both events have some of our favorite dark designers. Coming home after shopping them is like bringing home that fat bag of candy after a night of trick or treating.  
How cute is my body suit? Ok yeah I don't do kitty looks, but seriously look at that tail?  So, so cute!
Leave it to Dark Passions to bring us some wonderfully creepy polish for the season. Love the zombie hands!
I am wearing a lovely lipstick from Psycho Barbie. The Catwa applier HUD includes 10 beautifully outlined shades.
If you look closely you will see that half of this post is W:6. This brand offers so much variety for us darklings. From accessories to hair, you can find so many items to love at W:6. 
The first image includes a pose from Serendipity Poses, from the Madera set which is a TDCF exclusive. Seriously it's time to get out to the events and shop!

Happy Haunting!

~Welcome To My Cemetery ~

October 11- November 1, 2017
Welcome to my Cemetery, won't you come in?



Pose from Serendipity: madara... exclusive for TDCF

The detail in the tombstones is really lovely.
This pose is from the "amalia..." pose set from Serendipity

My friend Grim is also available for purchase from Angelic Designs at TDCF

It's that time of year darklings! When everything on the grid turns wonderfully creepy and deliciously spooky. Don't ya just love it?
It's also time for another round of The Darkness Chamber Fair. This time around the theme is "Halloween." Well, of course it is! As always there is tons of fab creepiness at TDCF!  I'm like a kid going through my candy haul with all the goodies at the event!

So my location for this set of pics, is actually a build from Angelic Designs you can purchase for a hugely discounted rate at TDCF. I have to say I am tempted to take down my lil skybox home and live in this cemetery forever. Complete with sounds and sit animations it is absolutely to die for!  

And of course you need to dress up for all cemetery visits, so with my lovely gown from The 100 I feel wonderfully pretty. The Wendy Halloween Gown includes a texture HUD giving you quite a few options. The Luna Choker from Astara is an enchanting piece. It's beautifully delicate and makes for a graceful accessory for any look.  

W:6 has the crowning touch with this headpiece, available in both black or red its really stunning in it's elegance. My eyes are also from W:6, include four different versions in both the Catwa applier and mesh versions.  

Serendipity Poses are back at TDCF again with a few different pose packs. As always they are wonderfully lively poses and capture such a great sense of movement in them.  

What girl doesn't like a bit of makeup? Even dead girls like to look pretty, so I have finished up this look some lovely shadow from W:6 currently available at the E/M event and of course some Dark Passions polish. Now look closely at this polish set, the insides of the nails are a different color! So while you have a super somber and sexy black manicure you get the subtle accent of color coming from the inside of your nails. I so love this! So much! 

As always, shopping links are after the designer's ads.

We can all be a little bit of enough

Sept. 16 - Oct. 1, 2017

Time to hurry yourself over for some last shopping trips through the SOS Festival. It ends soon and you don't want to miss out. The event really is for a fabulous cause, which is in need of support more than ever lately.



Sept. 16 - Oct. 1, 2017


I have to admit I have felt really honored to be a part of the blog team for this event. I have so much respect for the skilled men and women of Doctors Without Borders and the work they do. I know to some our individual efforts here in SL may not seem like much, may not seem like enough to make a difference. 
 But if we all go support this event, we can each help be a little bit of enough.
 Together we can all be enough, at least for one day.
So before it's over, before the next tragedy hits the tv news, go shop, enjoy and help be part of enough. 

As always I have some of my beloved sponsors also in this post. From this super slinky sexy dress from Psycho Barbie, to my perfect manicure from Dark Passions, to my shape from Pin Up, these are the brands that always are fabulous! 
    
Links and details are below. 
Happy Shopping!

Sept. 16 - Oct. 1, 2017


With the recent events of the past few days there is no better time to visit the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. Even now Doctors Without Borders has teams working in Mexico to help with victims of the earthquakes. You can read about it here.
Seriously it's not just 4 sims of shopping, but there are also a ton of events happening, including live performers and fashion shows. You can see all the events here: SOS Events. Be sure to check out the amazing prizes in the raffle (even Truth gift cards!) and a whole slew of auction boards. 
All proceeds go to benefit this more than worthy cause, so as we sit here in our homes, safe lets take a few minutes to contribute in at least this little way.

As you look through this post you will notice so many of the items I am wearing are indeed from the SOS Festival in addition to some more fabulous items from my wonderful and amazing sponsors and a few more designers to finish off the look. As always all the links you need are below.

S.O.S. - Spoonful of Sugar a Benefit for Doctors Without Borders


Hello darklings, today I have something really different than my usual posts. I want to share with you an event that opens on Saturday Sept 16. 
The Spoonful Of Sugar Festival is a wonderfully huge event benefiting Medecins San Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders (MSF.) 

What better cause than this amazing organization that brings so much help and care to people in the most dire of circumstances and situations? Doctors Without Borders brings medical care and aid in some of the worst places without prejudice towards race, religion or politics. You can read more about MSF at their website and also at the S.O.S. Festival website.

So I took an early morning walk yesterday and snapped a few pics to show you just how awesome this event is. With what looks like close to 150 vendors there is seriously something for everybody. A portion of all the items sold at this event will go to Doctors Without Borders
Not only are there stores and stores filled with shopping, but I saw a gacha orchard, an auction and a raffle area all of which had some really great items.  There will also be fashion shows and live music at the stage area. Be sure to look for the lil sugar bowls at each store for some fabulous gifts!

To find out the events schedule and so many more details check the Spoonful of Sugar website.

Below are a few pics from my morning walk, I do so hope they inspire you to come out and support this event. With so much going on in this world so many are struggling, even if we can't individually do much, we can each do a little and together we make a difference. 

Sept. 16 - Oct. 1, 2017


When you land at S.O. S. you will start here at the train station. Which is your source for everything you need to know and of course being a train station it has all your travel needs covered (click the grey signs for a list of all stores on each sim.) 

So many pretty spots on the shopping sims.

This is just a partial view of 1 of the 4 shopping sims. There are some seriously fab stores here, from high fashion to some of  our beloved alt style brands, everything is represented. One complete sim is dedicated to landscape and furniture with some really lovely items on display.

Cerridwen's Cauldron always has the most gorgeous items that shine with a brilliant life all their own. 

S.O.S. exclusive set from Amam Cara Designs - this chair is so adorable! Look at the bunny hands and feet! *SQUEALS*  Yes, I may have squealed when I saw it. It has a huge texture hud with some really great designs, from daises to a couple textures that say for "Daddy's Princess."

I made a friend at Fluid Designs display. How adorable is he?

Although this isn't event related I just have to say I am so loving this new skin form 7 Deadly Skins. There are three new tones, including this one "cloud" which is so soft, pretty and gorgeously pale.
