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’ve finally gotten some proper winter temperatures (but no snow, alas) so it seems perfect to warm things up with a review of Dutchie’s latest release, the Cocktail Lovers Chair. As it is packed full of carefully chosen animations, I opted for doing a video to show a selection of the PG couple animations as well as preview some of the additional menus available in the adult version of the chair. In addition to that, I have included a selection of photos with this post. There are naked pixels below, though nothing too raunchy even if there is plenty of options for that among the animations. The Adult chair comes 20 female and 20 male solo animations, 20 cuddles and kisses, 80 FP and sex animations and 11 sequences. It includes auto-attaching props (PG and Adult) and supports auto-tilting for Aeros (Adult only). Both versions of the chair offer 3 texture options for the fabric.
The Jaz hair from Wasabi, their release for the ongoing round of Uber, also includes a version with a hat. The bra & knickers from Junbug (which I picked up at her massive sale) include three versions for the bra and two for the knickers, at varying stages of undress.
Time for another video, this time to take a closer look at the animated chess set from Dutchie. The set includes a version where you sit on the floor and one where you sit at a table. It is the latter that is shown in the video and I talk a bit about how you may need to adjust the size of the table and chairs to work with the seated animations included in the chess set. Also featured in the video are a pair of new outfits from Caverna Obscura, a matching pair of Grecian/Roman tunics.
Faida and Velvet Whip have started collaborating on a line of interactive clothing they call “Oops!”. The latest release is out at We Love Role-Play and Titania was kind enough to send it to me. I had been eyeing the earlier releases but since they are fitted for Maitreya, I was a little uncertain how they would work on Slink Physique. It turns out it works pretty well, though I did have to switch the alpha cuts around between the different stages of the dress so doing a video as I had first intended wasn’t ideal. In the more undressed versions, I also had to make some small edits to the images where the alpha cuts didn’t line up right, so if you want to use the outfits for actual roleplay, I do definitely recommend wearing them on the Maitreya body. But since most people aren’t as stubborn as me about sticking to just Slink, that shouldn’t be a problem. ;)
No, indeed, it is not. Fantasy Faire 2018 was supposed to end today, but the Fairelands will now be around until May 7th. Official programming will still end today, but you will be able to continue shopping, exploring, doing the quest and of course donating to RFL. I will be gone for a couple of days myself and when I come back I do have some non-Fantasy Faire blogging lined up, but I hope to show a few more favourites before the 7th.
To celebrate that today is not the end, both Ran and I went shopping at Silvan Moon Designs, picking up a nice set of RFL retexturings of a pair of her outfits which we both paired with Wasabi hairs. I also added a jewelery set from Acios and used the Mythril Roleplay HUD for the bow and the curtsey. The house and the furniture set are from Rustica.
Now that I have started doing vlogs, I seem to come across opportunities for doing them on a regular basis. Take the Performer Chair from Dutchie (PG version here), for example. How could I not showcase this with a video? It is great for photos, too, but that’s the beauty of combining blogs and vlogs, I can do both. Video is also a great way to show off the rigging of mesh clothing, such as this new bodysuit and harness from the Plastik.
For sexy photos, I often opt for strong colours, like red or black. But here I took a liking to the contrast between the very naughty outfit from deviousMind with the pale ivory colour, which also is reflected in the decor of the room. It actually started with the mesh stockings from Salt & Pepper, since the colour I won from the gacha was this pale cream. I then picked the best match from the “Making You Blush” set by deviousMind (which is available in quite an array of colours, with each set containing to complimentary hues) and pondered where to shoot it. I remembered that I still had the bedroom from December’s Shadow Box setup, though the bed didn’t have any adult poses. Enter the laptop from Dutchie and all of a sudden I had my scene, which I then framed as voyeuristicly viewed through the window. More than enough for a blush, I think!
During the weekend Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie dropped her latest creation on me—a sauna! Since it definitely needed both photos and a video to do it justice, it took a few days before I found the time to properly play with it. I kept the video PG (there is a PG as well as the Adult aka “Swinger” version of the sauna) but the photos in this post are rather more NSFW. Alas, neither me nor Ran have any alts setup with mesh bodies, so we couldn’t test out the poses intended for more than two avatars, but I do give a look at the menus to give a sense of what’s available.
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.
There’s another new event lurking around the corner, Fetish Fair. It opens August 19th and I have a couple of previews in this post, from Aisling and PXL. Also, a pair of Wicked booties from lassitude & ennui for Enchantment, which is ongoing.
Roslin Petion of Luxuria is putting out a steady stream of sexy applier lingerie, with one of her latest offerings being for the Gacha Garden. I decided to pair it with a new release from Aisling and a new hair from Wasabi Pills, while also taking the opportunity to show off another tone of alaskametro’s/a> new skin, this time on the classic avatar head rather than a mesh head.
I have ended up with a lot of naughty bits and pieces waiting to be blogged, in part due to the new adult gacha event called Objets d’Amour, brought to Second Life by the creators behind ROMP. My first pick from there is a lingerie set by Luxuria, which thematically went very well with a previous ROMP item by Dutchie.
A new round of Romp, as always full of elegant kink, starts tomorrow (October 2nd). Two of the participating brands are Dutchie and Aisling and as it would happen their releases went rather well together. Now, I do want to stress before anyone dives into this post that it is most definitely NSFW. That was hard to avoid when Dutchie went and released a whole playroom full of furniture. In fact, it is such a large release that this post only looks at three of the five new items and even then it just scratches the surface as there’s over 200 animations in total. And guys, if your equipment is by Aeros, you will appreciate the new auto-tilting feature of these pieces.
ieQED has put out another set of body jewellery and I took that as an opportunity to show off Tuli’s Willow skin and her Slink appliers in yet another tone. As it happened, the body jewellery also went quite well with the latest jewellery release from Jian.
When previewing the Festival of Sin II, I was very pleased to see that one of the participating designers was Solange. I used to wear her silks and other outfits quite a bit, so it is nice to see her back and doing mesh—and naughty mesh, at that. And while I was playing around with poses, trying to come up with how to photo this look, I had a surprise folder from Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie land in my inventory with her latest release. That turned out to be just what I needed.
