I am a little bit behind, only now getting around to giving you a look at the Vintage Fair. But I am starting to be less and less eager to beat down the doors of an event on the first day—much nicer to be able to browse with a bit less lag. As the Vintage Fair stretches over two whole sim, you will need a fair bit of time to go through it even with less of a crowd around, so now is definitely a good time. In this post, I am taking a look at Adam n Eve, deviousMind, Roawenwood and Paper Moon, plus a hair from Wasabi Pills (not from the Vintage Fair).
After a break for a few months, I picked up the June Deco(c)rate and did another unboxing video. The theme of “Enchanted Dreams” sounded like it would be right up my alley and I was definitely quite pleased by what I found in the crate.
I will have to be a little briefer than usual today as I’ve done something to the right side of my neck that makes using my right arm quite uncomfortable. I didn’t even manage to ride my full hour today, and that’s how you know something is serious since I have suffered through riding lessons with all sorts of aches and pains. ;)
Anyway, what I have for you today is a campsite from Roawenwood, a harness from Noble Creations and a pair of very useful applier tights from Stitched—for both male and female avatars, yay. As you can see, I am “Frey” today, wearing a new group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins on my LightStar head.
It took its time, but I think its safe to say that summer is finally here. Of course, the Swedish summer is notorious for being very changeable and sometimes quite wet and chilly, so you can’t always tell it apart from late spring and early autumn. Today, however, the weather is nice (if a bit windy) and I am just indoors because I am still tired after a weekend of dog shows and related activities. But at least that gives me a chance to catch up on some blogging and today it is all about the swimwear.
After a week of being buried beneath a paper on the Romantic image of the Middle Ages, I’ve taken off for space and found an abandoned ship. Or is it abandoned? It seems there might be a surprising visitor on board. Both the ship by 22769 and the spacesuit from Anachron are both from the current round of Genre, which unsurprisingly is themed Sci-Fi.
The Fantasy Gacha Carnival tends to feature some very elaborate fantasy sets and the May round is no different. One of the more spectacular sets that you can play for is Aisling’s Satrinah outfit, of which I am showing one version in this post. I went for the pieces that give it a fantasy harem girl look, with a veil and various pieces of jewellery accompanying the main outfit. But there are also additional pieces to give yourself a much more fantastical look, such as horns, demon eyes or snake eyes and even a pair of wearable snakes that wrap around your body.
deviousMind has a fun lingerie set out for ROMP, so I grabbed one of the commons from the gacha and setup by the pool in one of our NotSoBad houses. They’re getting on in years but still have their uses, though admittedly it is a bit frustrating that they are so large. I am glad that for the most part, builds in Second Life are a bit smaller these days. Sometimes epic is nice, but you don’t always want to look like you walked into a giant’s castle!
It is refreshing to be out of my usual wheelhouse for a bit. This all started with the Anthophila book from the Plastik, a beautifully decorated tome adorned with bees. This prompted a more ...scholarly look, or at the very least something of a librarian look, which was accomplished through clothing from alaskametro and another release from the Plastik, the Hololense glasses.
We Love Role-Play’s May round (with lots of gifts available, as it is the 4th anniversary for the event) is still going strong but without being completely full, so now is the time to check out some of the great items available. In this post, I paired the huge tavern set from Aisling with a gown from Roawenwood, for the perfect rustic scene. I also called in Ran once again, still in his Arthur head from LightStar, albeit with a different shape.
Elaborate sets with a lot of poses are hard to do justice with just static images and writing, so when I got the opportunity to blog the Devil’s Playground set from Roawenwood, a video seemed like the natural choice, albeit with some limitations. Rather than ending up in a situation where the video needed to be restricted due to content, I opted to not show the naughtier poses, though hopefully going through the menues still gives a good sense of what the set has to offer. Also featured in the video is a gacha set from deviousMind and a new male bento head from LightStar.
The beautiful gowns from Senzafine always inspire me and the latest release, Aradia, is no different. I fell in love with the texturing of this gown as soon as I put it on and it offers some truly sumptuous colour combinations. Blue is not normally the colour I reach for first, but this version—called Moonlight—was just too lovely to pass up and I used it as the inspiration for the rest of the setting.
A few days ago, Truth sent a new hair to his VIP group. This group has been excellent value but this gift was particularly interesting as it is the first release with brand new textures as well as a styling hud that offers four styles in one. The best way to show it was of course to make a little video, in which I also show off releases from deviousMind, the Plastik and Anachron.
Aisling has two elaborate gachas out for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and together with We Love Role-Play releases from the Muses and Paper Moon, it lent itself to a touch of oriental fantasy featuring a desert night and a hard-to-resist invitation.
We’ve had a few days of glorious weather, more summer than spring, and the woods have really come to life with budding trees and bird song everywhere. It put me in the mood for a forest scene, which also happened to suit one of several new releases from Noble Creations quite well. And once I had settled on the vine-covered bird cage, it seemed appropriate to continue on the theme of locks by using a new gacha from deviousMind.
