Endangered Species

This month's endangered specie is the Horned Puffin, a beautiful sea bird. Click to adopt it.

The specie breeds on the coasts of Siberia, Alaska and British Columbia, nesting in rocky cavities, and eating mainly fish (that they catch, by diving into the sea) but can also squid and some crustaceans.

The Horned Puffin has its habitat endangered due to the introduction of rats in several of their breeding/nesting islands.

Here's a picture of this adorable auk:

I find the face magnificent! What do you think?

100 Million members: here comes the whipped cream

(just to make myself clear: I hate whipped cream since the last time I ate it because I was vomitting all night. cheers)

Stardoll is being more generous than it has been in last 100 or so years

Since I'm not going to do any of these (except spending my 100 free stardollars. Woohoo. I'm rather enjoying myself today) and I'm in a very good mood today, I'll thank Stardoll for giving those 100 Stardollars even for non-ss members (I'm not going to mention how everything non-superstar can be bought for about 100 sd in all. Enjoy yourself too). Usually those "gifts" turned out to be just stuff members would be selling on starbazaar later (or wiser members just recycling them because they know nobody would be going to buy them - except that Valentine's day Gift-o-meter when after that I bought that awesome black jacket on starbazaar), and speaking of gifts, stardoll is giving out free items for members who upgrade their ss status or renew it

Corset Dress

This dress is originally from the Fallen Angel shop and I personally adore it. It looks great with a pair of boots and a few accessories but, unfortunately, I haven't seen any medoll wearing it these days. I don't know its original price but I payed 16$ for mine and you can find it easily on starbazaar. That's how it looks like on Stardoll:

In real life, corset dresses can have lots of shapes and colors so the picture below was the closest real live version I've found:

I think these alternative pieces of clothing look amazing so there you have some more brilliant Corset Dresses:

Do any of you enjoy these dresses on real life? Wear any?

The Joker Reproduction

I haven't seen such creativity on Stardoll for some time. I'm talking about dzastaa16, the user who recreated The Joker character on her page through the medoll and suite:

I personally think it looks magnificent. Opinions?

Barbed Wire Bed

This gorgeous bed can be found in the Evening Falls shop, it costs 21$ and it's restricted to Superstar members. As any item from the store, it looks brilliant and it's great for creating dark suites so if you're planning to create a bedroom, this bed would be a great option.

Stardoll got inspired by Jimmie Martin creation (also called Barbed Wire Bed). He's a furniture designer and his making is spectacular so I totally recommend you to check his art, by clicking here.
Back to the bed, here's a photo of the real life version:

New Dot + Doreé Collection

So, Stardoll's non-sparkling make up store got updated.

We got some new eyeliners, lipsticks, blushes, eye pencils, mascaras and shade sticks. The colour scheme is bright and shocking, and my attention went to the Tigerlily Mascara, for bright red eyelashes and the TechnoGoth Eyepencil, which has a great deep purple colour.

The collection isn't the best one so far, but some interesting things were released. See it for yourself:

Also Doreé was refreshed.

There are six new hair colours, all light and slightly pale and, as usual, matching highlighters.

What do you think of them?

New PPQ Floor

A new floor has been added to the PPQ of Mayfair store. The dominant color is black, everything is Superstar, as usual, and the prices range between 22$ and 40$. The collection looks like this:

I think the Nightflow Cape Coat looks great but it's too overpriced (40$). Buying anything?

Gold Skull Cup

There's a goblet in the Evening Falls shop, called Gold Skull Cup. It costs 8$ and it's superstar (shocker). I don't think I could ever drink out of it if I had it in real life, it's way too scary, but the idea is excellent though.

So is the real life version. It's part of Alchemy Gothic's Arca collection. It's called Lord Byron Goblet. Lord Byron was a poet in case you didn't know. He wrote Don Juan (you probably know it, right?) and I think his skull is portrayed on the goblet. I find all this fascinating.

In case anyone is interested, here's one of Byron's songs:


So we'll go no more a roving
so late into the night
Though the heart be still as loving
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears the sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And Love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon.

Idoru Bloomers

Some time ago, along with the amazing Goth Idoru Doll, Stardoll released a black bloomers which are really rare to see in any medoll nowadays. I personally adore them in Gothic looks, it looks really different from the usual outfits I see out there. You can purchase them at the Fallen Angel store for 4$ and they're non-superstar which is great. Here's how they look like:

In real life, they're called Gothic/Lolita Bloomers and, in my opinion, they look amazing. I've eventually found two pictures that look really similar to the Stardoll version:

And two more Bloomers versions:

Interview with Angel_of_HIM

Angel_of_HIM is known all over Stardoll. She's friendly, she has an amazing suite with all 14 rooms decorated - and I'm talking about gorgeous decorations, not just freebies. She had a lot of time to decorate them too, she's been on Stardoll since 2006. She owns loads of rares and she has amazing style. What I like most is her presentation, which really presents her.

Do you like Harry Potter?
Yes ! It's a story & world I'm fascinated by since I started reading the first book.

What is the meaning of life?
I don't know. I know the path I want to go and what I want to accomplish. Everybody else has to find what they think is their goal in life. And I believe that we are made or sent here by someone or something.. what they intended us to do here.. we'll find out someday.. ;]

What is your favorite paranormal creature?
Definitely Ghosts. There is nothing else that scares and fascinates me so much at the same time.
I'm a true believer of paranormal and extraterrestrial. 'The Truth Is Out There' -__^

Have you ever had an imaginary friend?

Do you drink Coffee?
I'm not a fan of the classic coffee-milk-sugar thing. If I have coffee it's only when I'm out and there is a coffeeshop where I can get fancy coffee like a 'Vanilla Latte' or 'Dark Moccacino'.

What was your first favorite band or singer?
I don't even really remember. When I first got into music I was really young and never had a favorite.

How would you describe yourself in 1 word?
Can't. You need waaaay more than one word to describe me xD

Do you like your country?
I love Austria. It just has the right amount of modernness and tradition.

What do you do when you are bored?
Stardoll.. When that bores me I watch YouTube shows like 'Autopsy – Mysterious murders' and 'Medical Detectives'. I have a weird passion for shows about crime and murder..
If then internet also starts to bore me I start to clean O.o

Anything else you'd like to tell our readers?
Be yourself. :] May sound cheesy but that's how I live my life.

Fabolous, right? Now here's a photo of her:

Don't forget to click and feed her guestbook!

Pre-100 Million Users Party

Stardoll started celebrating too early.

The commemorative items are, in my opinion, the worse ones so far.

We got some black glasses with a city skyline on top of them, two rectangles with the same skyline inside (they do remind me a lot of the experience How do ants live in space) in hot pink and black, not very expensive and non-Superstar. For Superstar members, Stardoll released two dark blue dresses.

See the items for yourself:

Please note that not every item in the image is related to the 100 Million users campaign.

New Pop Shop floors

Stardoll has decided to release two new floors on Pop Shop store with the New York theme. Some items are really cheap and also non-superstar, which is great. Pictures below:

One item in particular caught my attention. I loved the Brooklyn Bridge, it's great for New York lovers creations. Unfortunately, it's for Superstar members only and it costs 10$. Brooklyn Bridge:

Did any of you buy something?

New Miss Sixty Collection

Usually I like Miss Sixty. Bright colors, interesting patterns.
Not this time, however.
Hew floor hasn't been installed yet, and you can find them in 'New' section or via Search. Except, it shows different prices here and there:

Wtf was that?
And btw, clothes are horrible.

March Collectible

Aaand this month we have a lovely juggling clown (I've been dreaming to learn juggling for a long time, I probably should start doing that). I don't usually like clowns, but this one seems fine. She (? All the previous ones were girls) has red hair, too. (I love red hair)
