Between a whirlwind trip to Madrid for a book signing and interview and packing for our proper vacation, I haven’t had a chance to blog for a good while. As it happened, the wait led to a nice opportunity to pair up Roawenwood’s latest set with a new collaboration from Fallen Gods and Faida. It also allowed for some naughty shots, and I never turn down an opportunity for those.
Feeling like you should be treated like royalty? Then you will want to take a look at my unboxing video for the Treasure Chest for March. Its theme is “Royal Treatment” and it includes 12 designers, each with their own interpretation of what that might be. The teaser photo reveals a few of the things you will find in the box, but to see all of the goodies you will have to watch the video. If you like what you see, the Treasure Chest now costs L$3000, but if you had signed up before the reveal it would have been L$1500, so keep that in mind for next month if you would like to give the only roleplay oriented subscription box on the grid a try.
Given the scarcity of gorgeous male historical/fantasy clothing in Second Life (unless you’re a grungy barbarian), I am always really thrilled when I come across something that I know Ran will want for his avatar. One brand that is sure to never disappoint in that regard is Junbug’s male side brand/sub brand, fittingly named Heathcliff. At the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, she has a gorgeous set of tunics and matching knee breeches which I promptly spent some money on and then passed over to Ran with orders for him to get dressed. As it happened, I had a new dress to blog, so we made it a little scene in a tavern.
The last two days it seems like half the grid (at least) have been trying to get into the Epiphany. And no wonder, really, because there are some very cool gachas this time around. I’ll be featuring just a taste of two of them in this post, the Terra Decor Gacha from the Plastik and the Cadeau, Costume Edition by Fallen Gods & Faida.
Have you been to Hair Fair yet? If not, there’s four sims of hair waiting to be thoroughly demoed. And if you already have gone through it once, take a second round (I thoroughly recommend cam-shopping from one of the two extra sims provided for that purpose). It is for a good cause, after all, and you can never have enough hair! If long styles are your passion, you definitely need to check out these three styles from Wasabi Pills.
It isn’t just Romp that is giving a look at the kinkier side of Second Life right now. The current round of the Fantasy Collective caters to a particular kind of fantasies and it is there that we find this bold Courtesan gown from Fallen Gods & Faida. Another pair of ongoing events are the Secret Affair and of course Hair Fair, both represented with new releases from Noble Creations and LeLutka.
A few days still remain of the Fantasy Faire, but I am taking a little semi-break to sneak in some other items as well. With this saucy Faida & Fallen Gods collaboration from the Epiphany, I decided that some lounging about on the opulent Justine couch (also by Fallen Gods) would be just the right environment. The hair, however, is actually from the Fantasy Faire and by Wasabi Pills.
The Gacha Garden opens a new round on February 1st and the Plastik is participating with a striking jewellery set. I decided to head down to our new little oasis (still under construction, but getting there) to show off one beautiful colour combination on the rares from the set.
Another day, another winter scene, but I love the season and want to enjoy it as much as possible while it lasts. Today, I am doing so in an outfit with influences from the east courtesy of Fallen Gods and Faida, accessorized by the Plastik and in the company of a wise old owl from Jian.
I had an unwanted visitor this week in the shape of a cold, so I have spent a few frustrated days getting nothing at all done and seeing various things build up, including the number of review copies in my inventory. I’ll be playing catch-up for a while, I can tell, so I might as well dive in right away to give you some new releases from Zaara, Aisling, Fallen Gods & Faida and Jian.
As I mentioned earlier, the commons from the Plaisir set by Fallen Gods and Faida for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival are very pretty. So, today I am wearing half of the set, combined with an upcoming necklace from Aisling.
I have slipped a bit behind on my blogging of late, but this time it is Second Life itself that is to blame. More specifically, Jammin’s various construction sets. I had been eyeing those for a good while, and when the brand-new Dungeon Construction Set came out, I decided that with that set I could probably construct something castle-like. Not quite a castle yet, since the existing sets don’t quite lend themselves to a full-scale castle, but the dungeon set definitely offers a lot of new interior space options. So, our work in progress is the backdrop for this photo session, which also includes a dress from Fallen Gods and Faida, a necklace from Aisling and a statue from Paper Moon and the Muses under the Visage name.
A new round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival has started and Aisling is participating with an elaborate, art nouveau-inspired jewellery set. I decided to stage the shot in one of our little patches of woodland, using the Titania’s Feast set from the Muses as part of the scene. I am also wearing a pair of brand new mesh eyes from PXL.
Fallen Gods has some fabulous new releases out for Wayward Halloween, including a charming Victorian-inspired gown created in collaboration with Faida. It seemed like a good fit for a library setting (courtesy of the library skybox from Garden of Dreams), especially together with some occult books from Paper Moon.
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.
