Treasure Chest Unboxing March 2017

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.

High Seas Romance

I just couldn’t resist using the fabulous Neptune’s Revenge from Rustica for another set of photos. With the fantastic Roslyn gown from Junbug and a pretty companion wearing the fabulous Marquis outfit from Last Ride I think there is a distinct romance cover vibe about these shots.

Deco(c)rate Unboxing November 2016

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.

Flowering Lace

The Gacha Garden is full of a new crop of flowers, among them another beautiful set of applier lingerie from Luxuria. I am “cheating” a bit, however, because what I am wearing in these photos is actually the Seed of Inspiration, the special prize awarded every 20 pulls on a specific machine. That said, the regular version of the Grazia lingerie, as the set is called, is also a very pretty design. I just couldn’t resist the black and red combination that is unique to the Seed of Inspiration. The regular set comes in 9 common colours and 1 rare (black) and has the same cut of panty but a bra instead of a bustier.

Correction

As you may have noticed, I’ve started changing up the credits again, going back to the more traditional approach of having them at the end. I am still figuring out precisely how I want to do the linking (store or page, for example), so expect it to fluctuate a bit more. Some of the older entries may also end up displaying a bit weirdly as I work on tweaking some of the blog setup in preparation for a larger makeover. But, enough about that! Today, it seems I have been a naughty girl…

Treasure Chest Unboxing October 2016

The first Treasure Chest is here and I’ve got a long unboxing video for you. I did plenty of talking in the video, so I won’t make this post too lengthy, other than to say that I am following it up with credits for what Ran and I are wearing initially as well as with photo of my initial outfit. I am not giving separate credits for all of the Treasure Chest items since I go through those in detail in the video. Plus, you can also check out the Treasure Chest website and see all the designers and their items there.

Crafty

Suddenly, it is ferociously hot here and of course I had picked today for a thorough house cleaning. Perhaps that is why I was inspired to make this photo of someone working in warm conditions! New releases by Roawenwood, Tableau Vivant and ieQED are featured in this “crafty” post.

Dominant

This started out as a bit of a fantasy rogue, but I am not sure quite where it ended up. A bit more modern, I think, despite most of the pieces coming from various rounds of We Love Role-Play, such as the gorgeous boots by lassitude & ennui and the fur collar by Noble Creations.

Hidden Gems

I recently reread Judith Tarr’s Alamut (which I cannot recommend enough if you like history, fantasy and romance) and it put me in the mood to do some desert scenes. Fortunately, Aisling and Bliensen+MaiTai had just the right items out at We Love Role-Play.

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.

A Feast for Two

After a brief absence, the Muses are back with four new gowns and it wasn’t easy for me to decide which one to pick up. But I managed to make up my mind and the gown I did pick went beautifully with Aisling’s release for the upcoming round of Enchantment which opens later today. Also covered in this post are Fantasy Gacha Carnival pieces from Velvet Whip and SWaGGa as well as a new hair from Magika.

Shaded Comfort

The weather could not be more wintry in real life right now, as we just had some 30 cm of snow overnight. Glorious, I say, though quite the contrast to shooting the newest house from Barnesworth Anubis in our little desert. Also featured is a lovely dress by the Plastik, a classic updo from EMO-tions and an elegant furniture set from Roawenwood.

Sword-Maiden of the North

It is almost We Love Role-Play time and in addition to a great line-up of items for sale, there is also a hunt and a bunch of gifts. In this post, I am showing items from Noble Creations, ieQED and lassitude & ennui. At the same time, that always-frustrating gacha, the Arcade, is also going on and even though I stuck to a single machine my budget went out the window without a completion. Fortunately, the set in question—MadPea‘s Return of the Light—included some pretty cool pieces for use on their own.

Secret Affairs

I am still wandering about in our new build, this time in the dark dungeons below the upper levels. They are a little bare still as we search for suitable furnishings, but I am already feeling at home there. This post, however, is about a striking new updo hair from Calico for the Secret Affair as well as another lovely piece of jewellery from Aisling for We Love Role-Play.

Rustic Retreat

The season has definitely changed, it was quite cold when we trained our dog Sunday evening, so what better event to dive into than the Seasons Story? It features new releases by for example Jian and Wasabi Pills. I’ve combined this with a sale find from Sn@tch and a ring with a bite from Eclectica.
