Sascha's Designs Nikki Black Gown Premiering Now at SWANK Events October - A Stunning & Necessary Evil to Add to Your Wardrobe Collection

Halloween is a most unusual time of celebration and superstition. 
Overlapping Fall & Winter Seasons, it also symbolizes the subject life and death. 

Its origins go back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when 
people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts.

Today, it has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about a day 
of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults alike.

Swank Events brings this celebration to Second Life with its Halloween Haunt and Ride fashions. An exemplary example of this is the SAS Nikki Black Gothic Gown.

From the darkest caverns of your mind, wearing this gothic gown takes 
you between two worlds – one good and one evil. 

The evil is a transcendental place of darkness ruled 
by a powerful, secretive and elite few. Don't be afraid to join them.

To possess or be possessed is the ultimate question in life. 

The dark world can be alluringly dangerous unless you possess 
a killer sense of style along with a bold presence of mind 
(to thwart the demons which seek to own your soul). 

I wear the ITI Pointy Cross Necklace to help protect my soul 
from these demons which seek to do it harm.

This beautiful black strapless Sascha's Designs Nikki Black Gown is
vampiress in appearance, making it truly a stunning and
necessary evil to add to your formal wardrobe collection. 

This gown is adorned with poisonous black shoulder claw-like feather decorations. 

Its full length, body hugging slinky silhouette transcends to the floor 
in mermaid fashion with an elegant sweeper skirt, first impressing 
and then enthralling any potential victims with its elegant appearance.

For Halloween, unleash your inner vampiric instincts in 
this gorgeous and slinky number. 

Adorning the Carol G. Black Rose Tattoo with !IT! Pointy Cross Necklace

It's a necessary evil to seduce your favorite goblin.

This Selene Creations Margaux Club Dress makes a sexy addition to your wardrobe collection. 

Whether you want an all-over shade of one color, two-color solid blocking or even add
a bit of sexy lace, this number delivers with its HUD driven menu applier. 

This dress also has split hem eyelet & ribbon color-change options to fit your mood and tenacity.
Its halter top and tight mini skirt also play up your best assets for a flattering effect. 

I chose the colors of red and black. As you may know, there is no color which commands 
more attention quite like red. Combined with black they become partners in crime - 
potent & lethal shades which conjure up images of romantic indulgences and hot lovemaking. 

These colors are for the woman who isn’t afraid of turning heads for all the right reasons. 

Red is commonly associated with power and passion. Historically speaking, red has been 
the tried and true classic when it comes to lipstick and fingernail polish, serving as the 
grown-up sister to the color pink when you decide that want to dress like a sensual cat. 

Adding the mystique black to the forceful red shade has been scientifically 
proven to physically raise a man’s blood pressure and breathing rates! 

So…whether you’re looking for that perfect hot number to impress your special 
someone, or you just simply want to own the club next time you go out 
prowling, red and black are the lethal weapons of choice to consider.

And, BTW, the red carpet is red for a reason!

Darkness Seduced - A Poem by Becky Kénaan

"As darkness seduces our love and our fate 
We struggle our flesh to meld as we mate 

Your love brings color to my streaks of grey, 
beckoning your seeds as I give myself away 

As you cover my body with your sensual kisses 
Your touches fulfill my most intimate, midnight wishes 

My hips beneath you motion and keep 
Finally dawn's passion cries out, our bodies now weep 

A moment's intoxicating embrace we now share 
As we become one in womb's most inner lair 

Nay, this bond grows deep within us more 
As we lay as one summoning our inner core 

Once again life is reborn into the night 
With darkness' veil, its mystery, and delight."

Carol G.Tatto's "A Cat's Way" harmonizes seamlessly with this gown's stunning appearance.

Swank Event Halloween Haunt & Ride Premieres Selene Creations Morticia Black Dress - The Perfect Mind-Haunting Dress for Gomez to Ravage You

When I see the name "Morticia" during the Halloween Season, 
I immediately think of Morticia in the Addams Family played 
by Anjelica Huston and the dark side of her glamour. 

Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Grandmama, Wednesday, Pugsley
and Thing originally appeared on Televison in the 1960's. 
The Addams Family movie brought the pale gang to the cinema. 

MC Hammer even wrote an Award-Winning Song for the Movie

Morticia's character was all about deadly perfection - from her long black hair 
to her hemlock poison lips down to her sensuous, black Gothic dresses. 
Her nails were always immaculate, and her skin was kissed 
with an unearthly pallor radiant glow.

Morticia Addams also brought something languorously sexy to the television role she played. 
As a small child, it was something that I could clearly see but not quite yet understand. 
It was not until my late teens that I recognized it as Morticia’s stunning sensuality.

I once dressed the part of Morticia Addams for Halloween. The store-bought 
Morticia dresses could never come close to reaching the perfection of her looks. 

That said, my mother and I created my dress for Halloween. I also remember 
how much fun it was to perfect the makeup and to wear the long black wig.

Selene Creations Morticia dress is a funeral black with deadly yet sensual flair. 
The dress features a black laced and ruffled bandeau bodice top with the sternum 
revealed yet with not much cleavage shown. 

It has a sexy sheer midsection which bands in a gothic repetitive pattern around the waist 
of its sheer mini skirt with silhouettes of dead tree-trunk pattern embroidery. 

It comes with very sexy string panties and black strapped open-toe 
high knee boots for your favorite Halloween haunt.

With this fabulous Selene Creations Morticia Black Dress you just might consider getting a Lurch of your very own to run all of your errands for you so that you can just 
swan around SL dressed just like this! 

I’m thinking YES, ABSOLUTELY!

BYRNE Miko Kimono & Shorts Outfit EXCLUSIVE Release for Swank Events September “Tokyo Mix.”

Originally, the word "kimono" was the Japanese term for clothing. 

The traditional kimono first came into existence during the Heian period (794-1192 AD).
Today, the word “kimono” is specifically used to reference this traditional Japanese clothing.

Over time, as the practice of wearing kimonos in layers came into fashion, Japanese people paid special attention to how kimonos of different colors looked together.

As such, they developed a heightened sensitivity to color. 

Typically, color combinations represented either the environmental, 
the seasonal or the political class colors to which a geisha belonged. 
It was during this time that traditional Japanese color combinations evolved.

The Byrne Miko Black Kimono in Flora that I am modeling reflects the Nami patterning, 
layering and environmental color theme of this splendid outfit in modern context.

The Miko Kimono & Shorts Outfit is EXCLUSIVE for Swank Events September “Tokyo Mix.”

This banded V-neck printed kimono comes with a layered 
& sheer patterned skirt with back Otaibo bow and booty shorts. 

The Byrne Miko Kimono comes in three different environmental themes – 
Sky, Floral and Sea in both black and white versions.

It is materials enabled and designed for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya Fit Mesh Avatars

When I look at this beautiful Miko Kimono, I think of nature and its biophilic influences. 
The term Biophilia means love of life or love of nature (bio=life/nature + philia=love). 

The concept originated as a scientific hypothesis introduced in the 
early 1980's by Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson.

Biophillia is a feeling which is innate within us all. It is the instinctive satisfaction we experience through our contact with nature - like the experience of sitting on the beach looking at a sunset, when walking along a nature trail or by a stream in the forest.

The Japanese are very good in using nature’s beauty to express this. Natural colors and patterns can be used as powerful fashion design elements which can express a range of beautiful emotions. It can instill a sense of calmness, well-being, melancholy or happiness. 

The repetitive fan or "Nami" (wave) patterns on this kimono are derived from nature’s equations. These are called “fractal” patterns. Fractal patterns in nature are formed from chaotic equations containing repeating patterns of complexity and magnitude. 

Fractals are a natural wonder – both iterative and recursive. I love how it is masterfully 
woven into this modern-day interpretation of the kimono.

The Obi, Obijime and back Otaibo are wonderfully done with 
each theme having its own unique color attributes.

Pink Ice Proudly Presents the Gabriella Mesh Halter Top & Pants Outfit - 100% of Proceeds Going to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

This Pink Ice Gabriella two-piece outfit is comprised of a stylish 
mini mesh halter top with matching low rise mesh fitted flaired pants.  

To appreciate the fabulous styling attributes of this outfit,
it is befitting to look back in time.

During the 1960s and 1970s there were many changes seen in
the fashion world. It was a time when conservative leisure
dressing was no longer considered as prestigious.

Instead, the fashion forward period was inspired by the space race - 
ushering in a wide palette of colors & material technology advances.

Scandalously low hip hugger pants were born. Pants cut low on the hips, 
instead of the waist, revealed the sensuous curve of girls’ bodies with bare midriff. 

These belly-button exposers arrived during a high time for androgynous fashion, 
with both men and women exposing their skin… and loving it.

This dramatic style was the first to reveal the midriff in a casual way, 
shocking the conservative world, stirring up trouble in everyday wear. 

Hip huggers not only hugged the hips, but highlighted the belly button
 in a bold fashion move. First worn by the daring models, hip-huggers found 
their niche in the swinging 60’s, when revealing the body was “de rigueur.”

Fast forwarding to the 21st Century, the styles that we now see pants are not as 
low as those in the 1960s.  Today's waist is somewhat higher with banded trim or belts, 
giving off the illusion of low-cut pants while covering a bit more of the body

This Ice Pink Gabriella Top and Pant Outfit is a modern day interpretation, 
reminiscent of that period only with more gorgeous flair and styling attributes. 

Although the pants are worn "riding" low to expose a suggestive peek at the buttocks, 
they are just being slightly “cheeky.” This outfit was created with a rich, sexy &
stretchy sheen fitting materials look, giving it a vogue and sophisticated appearance. 

I love the trendy high neckline of the halter and how the material of the top
gathers at the collar. The halter collar goes scrupulously well with its black 
back cross straps and the waist & cuff bands of the pants. 

This outfit comes in Red, Blue, Black, Purple and Pink Silver (as modeled).


Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, 
epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. 

MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective 
of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

This Event Runs from Saturday, September 16th through Sunday, October 1st.
