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.
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.
Feeling like you should be treated like royalty? Then you will want to take a look at my unboxing video for the Treasure Chest for March. Its theme is “Royal Treatment” and it includes 12 designers, each with their own interpretation of what that might be. The teaser photo reveals a few of the things you will find in the box, but to see all of the goodies you will have to watch the video. If you like what you see, the Treasure Chest now costs L$3000, but if you had signed up before the reveal it would have been L$1500, so keep that in mind for next month if you would like to give the only roleplay oriented subscription box on the grid a try.
It is feeling a little odd to be setting up photos with a spring/summer feel when we’ve suddenly had a mass of snow dumped on us in real life, just as it was starting to feel like the beginning of spring. But that’s March for you. Fortunately, the weather is a bit more predictable in Second Life, which is to say it is exactly what I need at any given moment. In this case, I wanted a beautiful forest to show off this lovely statue from Noble Creations together with a few other thing from the new round of We Love Role-Play.
This look started with the Miwa hair from Wasabi Pills, which is available at the current round of Uber in two variant styles. I generally don’t do cute very well, so ponytails can be a challenge, but this style I think lent itself well to a more fetishy style using a set from Voluptas Virtualis that I did not get around to blogging while the Fetish Fair was still on. I paired that with suspenders and stockings by alaskametro and added earrings and heels from the Plastik.
One of my favourite pieces from the just released February Treasure Chest was the Sacrificial Rite set from Souzou Eien, so naturally I wanted to build a scene around it. Then I had this gorgeous cloak from Noble Creations and it seemed a shame to distract with other clothing, so I just added a few accessories. Besides, a red cloak and no clothing is best for performing sacrifices, everyone knows that.
Given the scarcity of gorgeous male historical/fantasy clothing in Second Life (unless you’re a grungy barbarian), I am always really thrilled when I come across something that I know Ran will want for his avatar. One brand that is sure to never disappoint in that regard is Junbug’s male side brand/sub brand, fittingly named Heathcliff. At the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, she has a gorgeous set of tunics and matching knee breeches which I promptly spent some money on and then passed over to Ran with orders for him to get dressed. As it happened, I had a new dress to blog, so we made it a little scene in a tavern.
We Love Role-Play have opened their February round and I have to say this looks like a particularly nice one. Its always a high-quality event, but even so I came away from there with an unusually high number of demos to go through. The first item I will be showing off, however, is a set of review copies from the Muses, paired with new releases from Aisling and Wasabi Pills. And I am still in my LightStar Athena head.
The (Fetish Fair) just opened today and Aisling has three new releases there as part of their Voluptas Virtualis sub brand. This post focuses on one of them, a very revealing harness that mixes leather and lace. Also new is my hair from Wasabi Pills and an eyeshadow from Adam n Eve, available at the Linden Lab Shop Your Heart Out event.
A few weeks ago I picked up the Curvaceous pose set from oOo Studio and it turned out to be just what I needed for this post about Aisling’s second ROMP release, the Zina lingerie. As a backdrop I am using the Grande Royale Bed from Roawenwood which really lives up to its name by being quite large and opulent.
A new round of ROMP, the event for elegant kink, opened today and my first post (it tends to end up being more than one when it comes to ROMP) features Roawenwood and Aisling. The latter brand have two new sets out at the event, both under the new sub brand of Voluptas Virtualis. I am more than a little thrilled to finally have some superb mesh lingerie for Slink Physique to play with. Sadly, many other great sets at the event were Maitreya only.
I am continuing my quest to recreate various of my shapes using LeLutka’s Simone, with varying success. I am pretty pleased with this attempt, especially with the Heidi applier from PXL, which I’ve had around to blog for a good while but not been able to until now as I didn’t have a LeLutka head earlier. That is certainly one aspect I am looking forward to know that I have a bento head, namely being able to do some skin shopping and skin blogging again as there has been a bit of a shortage of system head skins of late.
It is soon time to start shaking off the food coma of the holidays and get back to work. But today is still one of the lazy days of year (especially since its half a storm outside) so I decided to play around a bit with my pony. Well, my alt-as-a-pony, but that’s good enough for me. I am still waiting for someone to release a set of tack that’s right for a medieval/fantasy look, so until then the basic bridle and a saddle pad will have to do as my adventurer sets out in her new outfit from Aisling.
Yesterday, Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie plurked that she had a new release. She managed to make it sound very intriguing by saying that it made her blush, so I headed right over to her store to check it out. I didn’t have time to find it before she dropped a folder on me and said that she’d like to see what I’d write about it. The name of the item was the “Pet Pillow” and that alone had me hurrying back to my sim to check it out. As you might guess, this post will be heading into NSFW territory, even though the pillow is actually for solo use. But trust me, it is very useful even so and there are a total of 100 animations packed into it. As a result, this post has 10 images below the cut, so it might take a little time to load.
It started with a fancy gown and a fancy hair, but then I slipped on a blindfold with a Cyclopean jewel and suddenly I was no longer thinking of fancy Christmas parties. A fortune teller, perhaps? No, too grand for that. And Ran had mentioned the “oracle queen” from the Artesia comic, which stuck with me even though the clothing is not at all right for it. But it still gave me the inspiration to dig out one of the thrones (I have collected a few) in my inventory.
