Nightmare Before Halloween Part 1 of 2

“I’ll be ready by the time you get here,” Lucy said, her phone pressed against her ear as she applied her eyeliner. She wanted to look her best, so she used a steady hand even though her heart beat faster the longer she talked to him.

“I hope so,” the voice of her best friend came from the other end of the line. “We’re on our way now, and you know how fast Erza drives.”

“Yeah, yeah,” the blonde teen laughed, almost messing up her makeup. “I promise I’ll be good.”

“Okay, see you soon, Luce.”

She smiled, loving the silly nickname he gave her. “You too, Natsu.”

Lucy hung up her phone, relieved that now she could apply her makeup without trying to hold a conversation, but worried because she really did know how fast Erza drove. She almost wished the vehicle would suck up some of her energy in the process, since it might slow her down.

When she was satisfied with her face, she stood up and walked over to her full-length mirror. She gave herself a little twirl, smiling that all the hard work she did paid off. Lucy decided this year for Halloween she was going to go as her favorite zodiac sign, Aquarius.

She spent countless hours sewing her costume together, getting stabbed multiple times by her needles as she worked with her raw material to create -in her opinion- a masterpiece. Most of her golden hair was down, while some of it was pulled into two high pigtails. Green bows tied off her hair, matching the rest of her costume. She had sleeves that started halfway down her upper arm, coming down to her wrists. They were the same green as her bows, with yellow ruffles underneath.

A halter top swimsuit adorned her torso. She used a thick material to make the top, so it was warm despite the cold air that came with this time of the year. She drew Aquarius’s symbol right under her collarbone, making sure to get it nice and dark so everyone could see it. She used a special body paint that wasn’t supposed to smudge, so she hoped it would last for the night.

Lucy’s skirt was uneven, part of it coming up high on her upper thigh while the other part came down to her mid-thigh. The skirt was green, with yellow ruffles sewn on the waistband and on the hem. A matching yellow ribbon was tied around her thigh on the part where her skirt came up higher.

Her outfit was complete with a pair of brown strapped sandals. With her lack of pockets, she’d have to rely on Natsu to carry her phone and wallet, but he doubted he’d mind. He was always willing to help.

A light pink blush dusted her cheeks when she thought about her best friend. They met two years ago at a Halloween party. Coincidentally it was also thrown at Fairy Tail, just like the one they were attending tonight would be.

Lucy had decided a few weeks ago that tonight she was going to confess to Natsu Dragneel. She was going to tell him how she felt about him. She was just unsure how much she should say. The truth was the girl was hopelessly in love with the boy, and had been for the better part of the last year. However, she didn’t want to come on too strong. He’d never given her any reasons to suspect that maybe he liked her back, so professing her love for him was risky.

The blonde teen knew the best course of action would be to tell him that she liked him first. It wouldn’t be a lie. Despite loving him, she still liked him a lot. He was a great friend, funny, kind, and so full of happiness. Plus he was hot as fuck! She enjoyed spending time with Natsu, and tonight would be no different.

One-Piece Swimsuits for Spring

Whether you’ve got an upcoming springtime getaway or you’re just planning ahead for summer, now is a great time to start looking for swimwear. One-piece suits are no longer for the drab and frumpy - crazy cut-outs, exciting patterns, and fun details are helping one-pieces make a huge comeback. Here are some pretty one-piece swimsuits to help tide you over until summer is here. 

The floral print evokes spring, while the cute bow and keyhole add even more feminine touches. The contrast piping traces the bodice and continues along the bustier-style top.

Nanatte Lepore One-Piece Lover Swimsuit

The simple silhouette of this suit is offset by the classic damask pattern that sweeps from front to back, adding visual contrast.

Carmen Marc Valvo One-Piece Rococo Revival Swimsuit

Bring back the 90s with this funky strapless suit! Neon colorblocking, mesh panels, and - surprise - a bow at the back!

Beach Riot The Heatwave One-Piece Swimsuit

This demure monochromatic one-piece is anything but boring. The paneled geometric pattern is mirrored by the cut of the deep-v and halter top.

Tomas Maier Paneled Swimsuit

The gorgeous Pucci print on this suit is the perfect blue hue for a day by the pool. The spaghetti halter straps are complemented by the empire waist drawstring.

Emilio Pucci One-Piece Plunging Swimsuit

This suit may be 1950s-inspired, but it’s anything but dated. The retro style and pretty polka dot print are figure-flattering for a woman of any era.

Dolce&Gabbana Polka-Dot Swimsuit

The green banana leaves and plunging neckline make this the swimsuit version of J.Lo’s dress from the 2000 Grammys! The knot at the bottom of the plunging neckline adds a bit of textural interest.

Letarte Banana-Leaf One-Piece Swimsuit

This maillot is perfect for a tropical escape. The eye-catchingly bright print enhances the simple lines of the suit, and the built-in tank provides a bit of extra coverage.

Oh man, this depresses me so much. I decided that I need to organize my incomplete projects and (hopefully) motivate myself to finish and upload some of them, so I took pictures of a few of my current Create-A-Sim undertakings. (But not all of them. I got bored fast, lol.) From top to bottom, left to right:

  1. Peter Pan Collar Toddler Top
  2. Sweater Dress for Girls
  3. Rolled Up Jeans for Children (and an Un-rolled Version)
  4. Girls’ One-Piece Halter Top Swimsuit (and Two-Piece Variation)
  5. Simple Women’s Blouse
  6. Sheer Sweetheart Top Dress
  7. Casual Button Down Shirt for Women
  8. De-Bowed Bun Hair

Most of these are 90% complete or more, except for the lower LODs and taking thumbnail and preview pictures. But I hate doing those things. :’(
