Otherworldly

Money, Money, Money

The Festival of Sin is still going strong. If Lust and Wrath aren’t your favourite sins, how about Greed? LAP has several great pose & prop sets to express a love for money with. Of course, a little Lust on the side is necessary, here in the form of the sexy Lussuria sets from elymode.

March Mesh Madness

Using mesh yet? If so, you’ll definitely want to pay a visit to the first all mesh event, the March Mesh Madness which opens on March 1st. If you’re not yet a mesh user, this is a great opportunity to give a mesh viewer a trial and have a look at what can be accomplished with mesh.

Rough and Tumble

Another post today? Indeed, we’re trying to make up for the lethargy following our visit to London over the weekend. For this post, how about a combination of Wrath and Lust from the Festival of Sin? It certainly doesn’t hurt (well, maybe a little) when one leads to the other…

Wrathful and Gloomy

For the Festival of Sin, Tableau Vivant has released a set of tableaus depicting different sins. They are wonderful, mood-filled pieces that can be used either with the included poses or as the backdrop for any pose you might want to use. I decided to try both approaches for these photos.

Short, but Sinful

The very cool Festival of Sin opened this Saturday. After my initial preview post, I had hoped to have more photos out during the weekend, but it proved much too hectic as myself and my partner (who of course happens to be my blog partner and photographer as well) spent the weekend in London shooting a little something for HBO UK to promote the upcoming DVD release of Game of Thrones. I didn’t even manage to post this one shot we did just before taking off, featuring the Sin-exclusive releases from Sn@tch and Dark Mouse.

The First Sin

Are you ready to sin? The Festival of Sin begins this Saturday, the 18th of February, and offers a sim full of delightful vices. Whether you are feeling Lustful or Wrathful or if you favour another poison, there’s bound to be something for you. I’m in the middle of packing for a trip over the weekend, but of course I had to make sure to shoot some of my favourite finds so far; the Carnal dress from Solange, the makeups from elymode, the shoes from Ingenue and the poses from Adorkable. There’s also a glimpse of the necklace from Caroline’s Jewelry, but I’ll need a closeup of that later on.

Pretty Girls

I do like it when several recent acquisitions just come together as if made for each other. Nomine just released the Jailbait series, a set of Lolita-inspired dresses, and as it happened they went perfectly with the new mesh hair from elikatira, the Flutter boots from lassitude & ennui for the Back to Black event which opens today and the new group gift from Adam n Eve, the Amaris skin with a special Valentine makeup. I am also wearing mesh lashes from Beetlebones (you get a pack of 10 styles for L$250 and they are indeed easier to fit than non-mesh lashes) and using the new Glitterati poses from Collabor88, Formality.

Undressed in Style

I’ve said it before but it bears repeating: I love dressing up in just lingerie and jewellery. A new release from the talented camilla Yosuke of Insolence is today’s pretty underthings and the jewellery—which is all mesh—comes from a new and exciting brand called (after its creator) Maxi Gossamer, which so far can be found only on the Marketplace.

Festive Flux

Flux is a new themed event with a great collection of talented creators taking part. The first installment is running from February 1st to February 27th and is Mardi Gras-themed. So, lots of green, purple and gold and plenty of festive items. I’ll be showing just a few examples in this first post, featuring designs from Sn@tch, Somnia and Schadenfreude. I am also wearing the latest skin from Adam n Eve and a new mesh hair from Wasabi Pills.

Dreaming in Space

This blog has definitely been living up to its name lately, with assorted otherworldly creatures being featured. And there’s more, since has released another batch of very unusual skins. Darker versions of the Fae skins, additional Neko skins and something distinctly more Sci-Fi than Fantasy, Android skins. If you want a low-prim way to a fantastic look, check these out.

Sweet Petites

They’re tiny, they’re amazing and they are mesh. The Petites are a new joint venture from several talented creators—Yabusaka, Fallen Gods and Wasabi Pills—that have joined together to produce a line of small mesh avatars. Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods provides an excellent introduction and I will try my best to convey some of my impressions of these adorable little avatars.

Slithering About

I promised some more looks at the new skins from Nomine, and here’s the second one, the Reptile skin. This is something very different from your usual skin fare.

Midnight Fae

Feel like slipping out of your human skin and into something very different? Then you should head over to Nomine to check out the latest release from Munchflower: a range of truly imaginative skins for several fantastical creatures. You can become a dazzling Fae, a lovely Mermaid, a feral Neko or a scaled, slithery Reptile.

The Fae skin inspired me to head over to the beautiful Chakryn Forest and I hope to bring you a look at the other fantasy skins in coming posts. Of course, you can also take a look at them on the Nomine webpage.

Natalie

Over at Adam n Eve, sachi has been on a tear lately, releasing two new skins (and preparing several more for release). I am very fond of what she has achieved with her latest skins and I really wanted to try and get better at what I keep calling “fancy headshots” to do them justice. So, here’s one attempt, using the brand-new Natalie skin.

Libertines

A touch (or rather more) of decadence is never wrong and the Marquis set from Libertine by Alia Baroque (best known as the creator behind Fallen Gods) delivers just that. It is a sumptuous furniture ensemble packed with animations, from elegant and languid sits (including plenty of sits for male avatars) to steamy threesomes. There are also many props included, some just for decorative purposes and others to be used with some of the animations. For those who prefer to keep their animations mature rather than adult, a version with just those poses is also included for each piece of furniture.

We’re starting off the photos rather tame, but it gets a little steamer inside. And do click through to the larger versions; I wanted to show these in the full width so they had to be sized down quite a bit to fit on the blog.
