Last evening we celebrated Christmas with my family and my Love. For the first time, we hosted the Christmas dinner, although mom provided the actual food. We provided our house and all the decoration, which, by the by, turned out fantastic. Unfortunately I had to work during the day, but my boss was so nice to let me go home earlier (thanks boss!). After dinner, presents happened. There were so many presents under the tree! The present I offered were all wrapped in leopard paper with black ribbon and custom name tags with golden lettering. Here come some pictures.
♥ My Christmas hat is black. Like my soul... ♥
♥ Cosiness at home and Christmas dinner table. ♥
♥ Fancy lemon cake, sponsored by grandparent; Glühwein (German weird thing of spiced warm wine) at a Christmas fair lat Sunday and a cake snowman, yum ánd cute! ♥
♥ My happy pink festive tree. This years theme of tree decorations; sweets. The tree contains full cakes, cake slices, (real) candy canes, cupcakes, a tea cup with can and ice creams.Previous themes were Alice in wonderland and Black. ♥
♥ My little town, at a first-Christmas-day-walk.Lovely, the quietness on the streets! ♥
Lately I've been playing a lot on the Johnny Woof server, especially on free days like these. Since I joined last October, I've got to know many cool people from all over the world, although the majority of players is from Belgium and UK I believe. Johnny (the owner of the server) himself is from the US.
I absolutely love how this server had a great community and people know each other and help each other. The cities are pretty and the people are friendly and talkative.
♥ A massive mushroom and new rose bushes. And Johnny (owner) and me. ♥
These days I have been helping Moe (people who are on the server will know who I mean) with the design of his castle walls and making him a special bridge. Before that I helped Omega to make his flying castle look good from under, since I have flying abilities and he doesn't. Often I'm also online just to socialize.
♥ This morning the Christmas tree in Entropia had presents under it! I received diamond boots with the 'Bunnyhop' enchantment on them! ♥
The main server is survival, but there is also a creative world with plots and in development are hunger games, mini games and a skyblock server extension. When joining you enter at the server hub, from which you can choose what world to go to. And one of the greatest things; there is a separate 'mineworld' that you can enter at any time, where you can mine, collect resources, destroy and grief all you want; it gets reset every week. :)
Survival/ No PvP/ 24-7/ Chest locks/ Protected build/ No Whitelist
This is my little online world with my online friends. I totally recommend this server for anyone who likes Minecraft. server ip: mc.johnnywoof.us and website: www.johnnywoof.us
"Why are they doing this? Why are they doing this? They said when you got here, the whole thing started. Who are you? What are you? Where did you come from? I think you're the cause of all this. I think you're evil! EVIL!"
-From: The Birds, 1963
At Halloween we started watching Hitchcock's 1963 'The Birds'. Due to partiness, we stopped half way and postponed the second half to one month later. Now, last Friday we watched the remainder. Our main conclusion was that movies were so different back then! Not full of action and heavy fighting. Scenes were much less hurried, there was actually time for characters to just sit down, light their cigarette (on the elementary school's playground!) and look around. Also the small amount of dialogue was surprising, which definitely added to the creepy mood.
♥ Crows and Seagulls. Way too many of them. ♥
♥ Tippi Hedren, actress of the main character. ♥
♥ And look who's here, on the corner of my mirror, evaluating my make-up before I leave home. ♥
♥ These dead pretties have been accompanying me often, recently. The ring is from a long time ago (Accessorize), the earrings are my most recent purchase (Six). ♥
As for some other birds:
♥ Beautiful in its simplicity. BlackBaroque uses old book prints and mixes them into strange compilations and print them on vintage book pages. This one is still on my wish-list! ♥
Before summer I started reading the Lauren Kate books, drawn to them by their cover print. I was looking for some easy reading, juicy surrealistic love story and this series totally fulfills those needs. It is a four-book struggle of human Luce and angel Daniel. Can you imagine how already that difference would make a love life complicated? Not to mention that it seems Luce and Daniel have met in the past. Many times... Ow, the romantic drama!
♥ From first to most recent with original titles: Fallen, Torment, Passion & Rapture. In between another book of this series was released -Fallen in Love- , with earlier love stories, which I haven't read yet. ♥
♥ Currently I'm halfway the fourth part. I read nearly every evening when I get in my comfy bed. Often I go to bed early so I can read. ♥
♥ I particulairy enjoyed the second one -Torment. It had the most beautiful scenery, on a cliff-side elitary school, where people live together serenely, the sea wind is like a calming melody, where every breakfast is a royal meal with the freshest ingredients and the flowers bloom freshly every morning. I could almost feel the sun on my face when reading it. ♥
♥ I'm in a brooch- and ring-buying mood lately. Here two of my brooches; the upper from a long time ago (vintage) and the lower from Accessorize. Since I took this picture about three weeks ago, I purchased two more; a silver snake and a skull cameo. ♥
♥ The wall decoration is a vintage soviet lamp (judging by its power socket) that my friends E and S bought for my house and I made a frame around it (wood, second hand) with real velvet background. I love the result! ♥
♥Enderman. Mob in Minecraft. 1/3rd taller than human character. Teleports. Gets hurt by water. Becomes angry when looked at and opens its mouth with black teeth and starts vibrating. Purple eyes. Harmless when left alone. Takes blocks to move them around.♥
Since Minecon 2013 just happened, I thought this would be a nice moment to post my photos of last years Minecon in Disneyland Paris. Together with C(a friend I met through Minecraft), my brother and bf we spent two days in Disneyland Paris. I cosplayed as a sexy enderman, because "endermen are so cute" (quoting myself at the costume contest in front of 700 people)! I made it to the top 5 in the costume contest and I totally loved being on stage.
♥ My costume's main focus was my face; I wore purple lenses (for the fist time in my life!) and heavily purple eye make-up. Since endermen have these pretty purple sparkles around them, I put purple glitters around my eyes. Have you ever noticed the teeth of endies are black? well, so were mine. And the tooth-paint was disgusting!! Also, it had to be removed with nearly pure alcohol. ♥
♥ Other than that, endies are tall and slender, so the perfect opportunity rose to wear my highest shiny black heels (Bordello's), a corset and the tightest leggins and turtle-neck i could find. My grass block was hand-crafted and functioned as a purse to hold my sigs in. For two days I held my arms straight, holding that huge cube. Lot of people commented me on how nice i stayed in my role the whole two days. ♥
♥ On stage with CaptainSparklez and Lydia. ♥
♥ I made out with Jeb. ♥ ♥ Ok, not really. But we're on a pic together! ♥
♥ Other endies I met. My head wasn't as square as theirs.♥
♥ Near water. People actually threw drops of water at me! ♥
Currently I'm playing at the JohnnyWoof server (mc.johnnywoof.us), a 24/7 survival multiplayer with handly plugins. Previously I played on Strontkever an CobbleCobble.
♥ Witch Hazel and Graveyard dust. welcome to the All Hallows Eve. Dress code: Anything cute, creepy or weird.♥
♥ I think we made awesome undead be awesome. ♥
♥ Dead and celebrating. ♥
♥Halloween booze and Halloween candies in Halloween bowls. For the past three weeks my house has been full of fake spiders and bats and cobwebs. Most of the decorations are DIY. ♥ ♥ Also, the raven is guarding Munchkin Bites that I totally won (as human!). ♥
♥ Outfit: Boots (Demonia), white men's shirt size 47 (largest i could find). The bolts came on a headband, but i made them into hair-clips (Confetti). ♥ Hair: teased, hair mousse and half a hair donut on the back. ♥ Make up: lip-liner in 2 colors, random red lipstick, black eye liner and different colors of foundation (Dior).
About 10 days ago was the first time I was awakened from the dead. For weeks, my Maker has been preparing me; collecting the best guts, best limbs and the best pieces of skin from different humans. Just a day before, some of my flesh started to crack, so some of my stitches were still really fresh. But it worked. My Maker's project worked; I lived, breathed and had brain activity. The one thing the maker didn't think of was clothing. When I woke, i was bare. He gave me his shirt to wear, promising me he would buy me pretty dresses soon. But for now, all I had to cover my self was this shapeless white shirt.
Only hours before the party Maker taught me how to move. In the crowd I observed other humans moving and I mimicked their movements. They looked at me weirdly, but I feel I did well! After hours of dancing with the humans and other monsters, my bolts started to hurt and stitches were dissolving. I needed to recharge again. So I slept.
One week later Maker brought me alive again. The party was in my residence. My undead and groovy friends were invited and the house brought in a mood of romantic darkness with a veil of mystery. Some of my body parts were changed again. A part of my skull was added, and a new side to my face. Most of my wounds had healed and the stitches removed. Only minor parts still needed stitching. I was still wearing the same white shirt, but it is okay. I remember it from last time. Again, I lived and I even had memories.
After the party at my own residence, I danced at a party in town. My friends were there with me. I danced until i was near collapsing and my skin started to dissolve. Then I slept, but I remember I fell asleep once before and I did not wake for a week! Will I ever wake up again to dance? I guess there are still some medical issues with this body that need fixing...
As autumn is working very hard to get itself noticed, I can't help myself but to enjoy the shortening days and the trees and plants changing shades. Soon the trees will be empty and the bushes will be brown. So for now, let's enjoy this dance of colors!
♥ This is one of the churches in the town I live in and I am in love with the vegetation growing on it! The red leaves were last week, aren't they pretty! ♥
♥ As it was at the end of last summer. ♥
♥ The same church, with focus on the leadlight window you can see when peeking inside through the small window. It is striking me how I managed to take two pictures that are very similar with a two month difference. ♥
♥ Cute fluffy wool pumpkins. awww! Saw them at the town fair. ♥ ♥ Sunday outfit. Simple long black dress (Jane Norman), Leather jacket against rising coldness (Tally Weijl) and the usual boots (van Haren). ♥
