Jinx has a whole gacha full of huge animesh lions at the Fantasy Faire and the idea came to me of using a building set from Jammin to construct part of a ruined desert temple where these giant beasts still hold sway, attended by a mysterious veiled priestess. The veil by the Dreaming Thicket, available in several gorgeous colours, is also from the Fantasy Faire, as is the outfit from Evie’s Closet, the hair from Wasabi (the second of their two releases for the faire) and the tattoos from Stardust.
Evangeline Miles of Evie’s Closet has returned to creating for Second Life after a bit of a hiatus. Before the advent of mesh, her flexi gowns stood out from the crowd as she always managed to give them an ethereal feel. It is not easy to translate that to mesh, but I think that the textures and colours of her latest release capture some of that quality. There’s almost a feeling of watercolours over the texturing, and that gives the gown a lovely flow that suggests movement.
Today is generally the year’s laziest (or possibly second laziest after January 1st) day for me. There’s nothing more that has to get finished in time for Christmas (we celebrate on the 24th in Sweden) and there’s lots of yummy leftovers. So its all about curling up with a book and puttering about with things like wintry photos in Second Life.
The September round of We Love Role-Play is now open and my first item of choice is the Miriel gown from Evie’s Closet. I am very happy to see Evangeline Miles move into mesh gowns—mesh gowns, thankfully, are much more forgiving of non-standard sized shapes than, say, mesh pants—and this is a lovely high fantasy design. I’ve paired it with the Curiata jewellery from Illusions and the latest release from Wasabi Pills, Robin. I am also wearing yet another newly acquired Skin Shop skin.
I didn’t shop as much as might have at the various sales over the last weekend, but I did make sure to pick up a naughty little number from Solange. I am not much for keeping my blog entirely SFW, I am afraid. ;) I thought it looked particularly fetching together with the Zodiac offering from Evie’s Closet, a delicate “bridle” that comes in two beautifully ornamented versions.
