"On November 4th of 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT Community at a grassroots level, with many new political and protest organizations being formed in response. 

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest in response, which features subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silences by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest. 
While inspired by the passage of Prop 8, the scope of the NOH8 Campaign has since grown to stand against discrimination and bullying of all kinds. The message of "No Hate" can be interpreted and applied broadly, and speaks to each person in their own way. 

The NOH8 Campaign itself is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest." (Please visit NoH8Campaign.com for more information.)


With Chicago Pride Parade [fb] coming this weekend , this was something near and dear to my heart I wanted to do and share.

Love each other. Unconditionally and without prejudice. 

We are brothers and sisters to all living things, 
and nothing else, neither race nor colour nor religion nor sex, 
should be more important than this one deepest, 
most extraordinary thing connecting us.
                                               ~ Albert Schweitzer

When the rest of the world is still fast asleep, 
or just beginning to stretch from their slumber.
When even the sun is still slow to rise,
is where I find my quietest time.
The birds quietly sing to us,
a soft breeze brushes through open windows.
Take the time to connect with the nature all around you,
most especially during this the days quietest time.

The lovely Eden of Eden Moon has released these oh so pretty and ever so comfy kimono inspired Aimi Dresses. So pretty I was inspired to redo a room to take on their Asian feel, the kittens seem rather pleased with their new place to play and comfy fabrics to cuddle on me with too. hehee

 And because I kept things simple I don't have the small bits to share here, so instead I give you all of the pretty colors available and the lovely fabrics used on the skirt, bow and top/back.

EEEnough!!
Not another step closer,

before you lose a limb.
They're mine!
Their souls belong to me. 
They got their wish, 
they knew what that meant. 
They got what they wanted, 
and signed on the dotted line. 
I gave them all of their time, 
but now - they're mine.

 Cubic Cherry Kre-ations has been on a roll with loveliness, and although I was becoming frustrated at rl for keeping me from blogging it - it all worked out for the best when I got to work with a bit of all at once. With a couple finishing touches from Cute Poison, everything fell into place.

 Have you been to Tales of Fantasy yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Cubic Cherry has a gacha of these beautiful Hator Horn head pieces that come in eight colors (including two rares). Although I am sad I wasn't able to get this post out in time as The Night Blindfold was introduced at the last round of Suicide Dollz which has just past, for that I am so sorry - but you can find them in shop now! And I'm in love with my new Miseria Collar from Cute Poison that comes in three different metals.

Everyone needs some time to unwind. 
A bit of time to kick back and relax. 
To do what ever you wish or simply nothing at all.
Sunday Funday can have it all - that's all up to you!

The girls and I decided to hit the beach and soak up some pixel sun, of course as soon as he heard the car keys Killer was in for the ride too. And with the gorgeous new swimsuits from both Death Rocker Bettie Crocker and Allure it was harder to pick just one than it was to find a suit that fit perfectly (if only rl were as easy! Amiright? hehee). So with a couple of accessories from Cute Poison that we simply couldn't do without we were on our way.

The lovely Dizzy of Death Rocker Bettie Crocker has pulled together these amazingly textured (as always!) and super adorable, Bathing Beauty, one piece swimsuits that you can find at the current round of Suicide Dollz in 11 different colors/designs, including some of her signature fabrics that I just love so much.
For the accessories addict in all of us, she's also made these beautiful Pentacle Earrings in the 12 birthstones for this round of Pre-Release Gatcha Garden too.
Speaking of things I love and accessories, have you checked out the piercings at Cute Poison lately? The ease of adjusting the mesh is just awesome! And her huds are just as lovely, with different colors and metals for each section. Just perfect!

Also with a list of colors and designs to choose from is the sexy Halter vNeck Swimsuit from Allure, that I picked up in black of course, it hugs and sits on the curves in just the right way in all of the right places - with no slipping! hehee
I've also finaaaally picked a skin for my WowMeh mesh body, from (Red)Mint, and I. Am. In. Love! The skin is perfect - I love the freckles so much! Everything is highlight, shades and placed just perfectly - and this WowMeh body?! WOW, is right! Can I just admit right now that I'm in love with my own breasts and bottom? Cause, yeah - they're gorgeous! Let's just leave it at that for now. XD

 One of my favorite Death Rocker Bettie Crocker signature fabrics is the Creature Feature, so I was  so happy to see she used it on one of her new Bathing Beauty swimsuits. Which also comes with a hud to change the bow color and an optional skull attachment for the center. 
Cute Poisons  Melting Earrings just go all to well with the fabric I think, but then when I played the Drippy Necklace gacha machine at Adore & Abhor and Munster came out - it was all just meant to be.
