I have a great fondness for fairy-tales and my book shelves bear evidence of this, being home to a number of different collections of classic fairy-tales as well as various modern retellings and reworkings. Once I knew I wanted to photo the Lucrezia gown from the Muses—out now at the February round of We Love Role-Play, which has a brand new and quite striking build—in front of a window in my castle from Fanatik, a spinning wheel seemed like the perfect fairy tale decor item. Fortunately, I had one from Cheeky Pea from an earlier Deco(c)rate. It also seemed appropriate to decorate the walls with some tapestries from Paper Moon.
Just a bit of a cosy winter scene for today, featuring a new hair from Wasabi Pills and a new-ish outfit from Paper Moon that has just the right feel for cuddling up in comfort and style. We did finally get some RL snow as well, though today it is melting again and making everything terribly slippery. So much for the nice walk in the woods we had planned with the dog for today.
It is no secret that I love virtual lingerie and for several years the Insolence brand, created by camilla Yosuke, was one of my favourites in Second Life. Then the releases stopped coming and once I moved to a mesh body I could no longer wear the existing pieces either. But a few weeks ago, a surprise notice arrived. Insolence was back, with mesh lingerie. The initial release was only for the Maitreya body, but the release notice promised that versions for other mesh bodies would be coming along. And just before I took off for Barcelona, the Slink versions (for the original and the hourglass body) arrived.
Today saw the release of the first Deco(c)rate, another subscription box from MadPea Productions. As the (rather clever) name suggests, this is a box focused not on wearables but instead on home and garden items, and the theme for the first round was “November Rain”. While I expected that the box would have a mainly modern focus, I still decided to take a chance on the first one since I do enjoy having a lot of props and builds on hand. It turned out to have been a very good decision as there are a lot of great pieces in this first Deco(c)rate.
