Shadow Box Unboxing December 2017

I have been way too busy the last few days but now I finally managed to make time for setting up and filming the fourth Shadow Box in the first series of six from Death Row Designs. Once again I opted for more of a reveal than an unboxing, since I felt it would not do the items justice to simply rez them out. And there were so many of them that I had to make use of four rooms in my Hartwick Manor from Apple Fall to display both the Light and the Dark version.

Shadow Box Unboxing November 2017

The third Shadow Box in the first series of six from Death Row Designs was released yesterday. As with the second one, I decided to more of a reveal than an unboxing, to show the items in a planned setup. I admit, the theme of this box threw me for a little loop at first, since it is not the kind of furnishings that I tend to use in Second Life. However, after rezzing everything out, I really took a liking to the Dark version in particular.

The Silver Lady

While I did not manage to win the massive castle from the Bloodcroft Castle Gacha by Death Row Designs, I did come away with some very nice furnishings that I decided to setup in my castle from Fanatik to make a cosy, gothic scene. The fireplace, in particular, is gorgeously detailed. Then I dressed up in the Claire gown from the Muses and took my place as the lady of the manor.

Welcome to My Lair

Bento attachments are a good excuse for another video to show them off in the best way. For example, the rares from the newest deviousMind gacha, where the movement created by animating bento bones adds another layer of realism. Well, maybe realism isn’t quite the right word when speaking of a succubus, but it certainly looks good either way! I also took the opportunity to show off some recently acquired companions from HEXtraordinary and Jian as well as a new skin by the Plastik and new hair by Analog Dog. The decor is a mix of Noble Creations and Death Row Designs.

Shadow Box Unboxing October 2017

The second Shadow Box from Death Row Designs was released earlier this week, once again presenting a Light and a Dark version of a similar set of decor items. Do note that it says “similar” and not “identical”; the idea with the Shadow Box is not simply to recolour and do some small tweaks to the dark versions—sometimes they can be substantially different, but still on the same basic theme.

As with the first one, I have a video to share, though this is more of a reveal than an unboxing as I really wanted to show the items arranged as I might use them rather than simply rezzed out at random.

A Lonely Seat

The latter half of May was eaten up by illness and scrambling to meet deadlines, so I am still behind on my reviews. But even though last month’s We Love Role-Play is over and the new one is just around the corner, I just had to combine a preview from Aisling from the new round with on my favourite items from the last round. After all, who can resist having their very own Iron Throne?

Fantasy Faire: Lady of the Twilight

The sim of Dangarnon (built by Death Row Designs) portrays a fallen, darkness-claimed version of one of last years sims, the kingdom of Andolys. I dared to venture out into this dark city and found a little corner of reminders of its original glory.
