and this may be the last time I'll ever see a blood sunrise

So, Rue news today.

(from the Avatars album; Rue's "Cassiopeia" eyes and "Shaman" Hallows-striped horns)

Remember way back when I mentioned I had an all-eye entry in the works? October pretty much pinned me to the ground early, and it's only slightly let up, so I'm putting these out when I can, and that will likely eat the first week of November as well. Alas.

These are the eyes in "Cerise", which--or so Wikipedia tells me--generally indicates an uncooked, pulped cherry-tone: basically, a very vibrant, slightly blued pinkish-red. In these eyes, with the triple pupil, they seem to just radiate the color.

These are the eyes in Fuchsia, a similar but slightly varied red-pink (more red than pink).

Next up, the eyes in Grape, a good, sturdy purplish for all purplish occasions, or a really strong-tannin merlot, depending on your reference set.

This is Nebula, and I really, really like the shifting mix of shades. This isn't the best picture, but when these are actually worn, there's at least three solid pink tones that weave around the triple pupil.

The "Temptation" eyes are another great shade, with tones of red, pink, orange and yellow surrounding a golden-green triad pupil.

And finally, the last in the Bloom set, "Wine", which comes across as an iced burgundy, with lots of magenta and rosepetal tones.

More coming!

(The horns in this series are also from Rue, there's more information on them here; the short version is that you can get a metric ton of unusual hair, Hallow-striped horns, and several "Halloween"-style eyes for the low, low price of thirty Lindens. How? Well, those are the three skulls Miss Ruina set out for Eclectic Desires' Halloween Maze hunt. The hair for this shoot is from Discord Designs [fairly sure it's no longer available], the skin is from MoMo [also may not be available], the lip tattoos are from Pin Me Down [acquired during World Goth Month], and the forehead jewels are from the Arachnos skin set at Fallen Gods [it comes with spider back-arms and the Arachnos skin as well; it's for the next day or so only on the Lucky Fortune machine].)
