The Ice and Fire event is now open and you have until April 13th to check it out. For my second post about it, I selected the full costume from deviousMind inspired by a certain Red Priestess as well as one of the giant animesh direwolves from Jinx. I then setup a truly “Ice and Fire” inspired scene with a big bonfire in the middle of the snow and ice.
If it wasn’t for the very brisk wind, today would have been very spring-like. So when it came to taking some pretty photos of this floral-adorned lingerie by Voluptas Virtualis, I decided it was time to step outside (virtually speaking, anyhow) and pose beneath the always blooming apple tree. I thought the result was quite charming, especially with the very freckled Ines skin from LAQ, here shown on the Maya head from LightStar. The skin is available at the Skin Fair which closes tomorrow, so if you have yet to check it out, get yourself over there!
You have a bit more time to check out the Lelia lingerie at Belle, which continues until the 3rd of April. The matching Melia choker, on the other hand, is available as a gift at the Voluptas Virtualis mainstore.
For today’s little scene, I browsed through my Dutchie folder and came across this writing desk and chair combination. It has some perfectly modest animations for various innocent activities at your desk, like reading a book, writing or working on your computer (or being in Second Life!), but then it also has a set labelled “Skype” which are a bit less modest. That seemed like the perfect match for the Giulia set from Voluptas Virtualis, which is out now at the current round of Kinky.
We’re almost at the end of the year and of course at the end of December, which means that another round of We Love Role-Play is about to wrap up. I wanted to show off another outfit from it, the Abaddon Aftermath set by Noble Creations. The mix of leather, lace and torn pieces does perhaps look more post-apocalyptic than fantasy, but I thought it would look pretty good in a castle as well. And then I decided that I also needed to show off my Teegle Bento Horse Avatar again, especially as I am waiting eagerly for the Teeglepet Animesh Horse to come out.
I managed to find a little time between preparing various dishes for Christmas to make a new vlog for Otherworldly, focusing on Vista’s new bento head and a few other items, such as recent releases from lassitude & ennui and paper moon. As usual, I have the credits at the end of the post. And yes, the Astrology contest I mention in the video is still going on, so check it out.
I am not a coffee drinker (which is pretty unusual in Sweden!) and while I do like tea, my favourite hot drink indulgence is without a doubt hot chocolate. Best drunk in winter, of course, especially outdoors at a Christmas market where you often get it flavoured with cinnamon. Delicious! So, for my second Redeux post for this round, I setup the hot cocoa stand from Roawenwood as a backdrop.
I spent the day doing some Christmas shopping (mostly various edible things, yum) and after surviving the crowds that had descended on Gothenburg today I decided that I wanted to setup a very tranquil-feeling scene for today’s photos. What better spot than our little northern corner of ice and snow? It was also perfect for showing off two new releases for Redeux, which is running from December 14th to December 21st, offering a great mix of designers showcasing both new exclusive items and discounted items.
But that is not all the newness that I have for you today. I am wearing the brand new Emily head from Vista, which may be my favourite so far of their heads, and I also need to tell you about a promotion from Astrology that gives you the chance to win the entire store.
This is of course a weekend full of great deals in Second Life and I thought I would share just a few from the flood of Black Friday/Black Weekend sales. I rather prefer the virtual sales in Second Life to the physical ones; they satisfy the shopping urge without making me feel horribly consumerist. After all, a mesh head or two more won’t tax the environment that much! I haven’t actually shopped LOGO’s fantastic sale yet (75% off their heads and hud!), but Ran did pick up their second male head since he’s been very happy with the first one. However, I do have a hair to share from Astrology (50% off all regularly priced items) and a skin from Lumae (70% off all 2018 skins with Skin Addiction group tag). Plus this “swamp girl” outfit from Noble Creations, though that is not a sale item but a new release for Whimsical. Finally, Serendipity does have several heavily discounted pose sets right now, plus 50% on everything else.
The Blush event is closing in just a couple of days, so if you have not checked it out, make room for it on your calendar promptly. Otherwise you will miss, among other things, this sexy corset and the Primrose ribbon necklace, both from Voluptas Virtualis. The pose shown here is from oOo Studio’s 50 Linden Friday set for this week; not sure if it is still out for just L$50 or not.
Time for another set from the Lootbox gacha. This one comes from deviousMind and is called Bastet for the Egyptian cat-headed goddess. No surprise, then, that it is full of Egyptian imagery and features a cat-head mask as well. The particular version shown in these images is the Goddess Rare in beautiful turquoise. On top of that, there is a secret rare as well.
Astrology is a new hair brand from the creator behind Alice Project, featuring among other things a custom HUD which allows you to pick your twenty favourite colours to make your own mix pack. I decided it could be fun to show it off in a video, in which I also try out some of the other features of the HUD. If I ramble even more than usual, it might have something to do with having gotten up at 4 am to take part in a working dog trial for the first time. I did manage to retroactively sort out that the two hairs featured in the video will be available at Hairology on the 10th of May. The first style from Astrology, called Magenta, is available at Uber already.
