Otherworldly

Blue Belladonna

The first photo was easy enough, but the second one for this post gave me fits for a while. Doing justice to the delicate accessories from the Plastik was anything but easy and of course I had made it harder on myself by including three different pieces. I am fairly happy with the end result, but do click through on the image for a larger version, or check it out on my flickr.

In Praise of Bacchus

Alia Baroque, best known for Fallen Gods, also has the delicious sub-brand called Libertine where he puts out decor from various eras. For the latest round of the Secret Affair, he has released “In Praise of Bacchus”, so that is what we’re doing today. The set can be purchased as a complete set or you can pick out individual decor pages. For a detailed look at what is available in the set, check out Alia’s post. The setup that I am showing in the post is what you get when you use the rezzer from the Adult package to setup a prepared scene.

A Little Extra Frou Frou

I mentioned the Frou Frou event a little while ago and I thought it might be time for a reminder in the form of the second new release for the event from Voluptas Virtualis. This time, it is paired together with the newest Wasabi Pills hair from Ultra and an old favourite as far as furniture goes from Libertine.

Fetish Flair

The (Fetish Fair) just opened today and Aisling has three new releases there as part of their Voluptas Virtualis sub brand. This post focuses on one of them, a very revealing harness that mixes leather and lace. Also new is my hair from Wasabi Pills and an eyeshadow from Adam n Eve, available at the Linden Lab Shop Your Heart Out event.

Last Call for Fetish Fair

The Fetish Fair ends on September 2nd, so you’re nearing your last chance to check out what’s on offer. Roawenwood has two new releases at the fair, both at a 50% discount, and I am taking a look at one of them in this post: the Enchained dance set.

Spank Me

I missed the opening of ROMP due to computer issues, so I have some catching up to do to show off some kinky goodness. First up are a set of sexy tops and miniskirts by the Plastik as well as some demanding stockings by Luxuria. I headed down to the little den we have setup with Alia Baroque’s gorgeous Marquis as it seemed like just the right location for these outfits.

Enthroned Again

A throne makes a much better statement than chair, don’t you think? Though, admittedly, they don’t tend to be that comfortable; I’ve tried out a few of the Iron Throne replicas at various events and they could definitely use some padding. Still, something about sitting on a throne—especially when dressed for the occasion—- makes me want to start giving commands. It is probably a good idea that the only thrones I actually own are virtual, like this Iron Queen Throne from Entity for the current round of Genre. That’s also where you can get a hold of the tapestries from Dysfunctionality, which are something I’ve missed in Second Life for a long time.

Skin Fair: Adam n Eve’s Oliver

Time to put the Adam back into Adam n Eve. Yes, sachi Vixen did not just make several female skins for the Skin Fair, she also made a new male face. This means Ran got to be both behind and in front of the camera for once, with me just providing a lot of opinions on poses. He also made his way over to Mina Hair to pick up a hair from her current 50% off sale.

Curved Lines

I have to say, the Marylebone Flat from Barnesworth Anubis has inspired me to play around quite a bit with different furnishings. It is a really interesting space which works very nicely for a lot of pieces I’ve wanted to cover for a while. So, in addition to some sexy upcoming lingerie from Alaskametro, a cool necklace from the Plastik and new hair from Wasabi Pills, this post also features furniture from Rustica and Noble Creations.

Benched

Its been rather dreadful weather today, so the idea of slipping into something comfortable in front of a fireplace certainly appeals. Of course, the latest outfit from Aisling, available at the Whimsical event, is perhaps more dead-sexy than comfortable. Also featured in this post are new releases from Noble Creations, Libertine and Barnesworth Anubis.

Christmas Ornaments

We just finished putting up our RL tree, which put me in the mood for a tree in SL as well. I brought out the fantastic Christmas tree from Libertine from 2014 which has an amazing scripted system for decorating it with ornaments that you can obtain from various sources. There’s a new version out this year at the Midwinter Fair and new ornaments in a gacha there; you will need the 2015 version of the tree to use both 2014 and 2015 ornaments.

Maya

Tuli has released a full skinline for Maya, whom we got a sneak peek of in witchy makeup. Now she’s out in the full range of skin tones (0-7) and with regular makeups on tattoo layers. I paired her with a cosy recent release from Jian and a few finds from the Gacha Garden.

Waiting for You

More from the Epiphany gacha today and this time it is another excellent collaboration between Faida and Fallen Gods, combined with a Hair Fair release by LeLutka and a new group gift skin from Tuli. The final touch is a pair of new Bushu shoes, coming for My Attic’s next round.

Decorative

I had no idea what forniphilia meant before Elysium Eilde of elymode sent me her two releases for Indulgence, an event exploring the naughtier side of Second Life (which in fact is not the only side, though it is certainly a fun one…). It took me a while to get around to these poses & props, mostly because both Ran and I are always exhausted at this point in June when we’ve spent far too many weeks covering Game of Thrones, leaving us little time for playing around in SL. But I did manage to drag him in today for just long enough to get these photos done.

Fairy Love

What would Valentine’s Day be without a touch of nudity? I felt that the Justine couch from Libertine definitely needed to be showcased more and I thought it made a fine setting for showing off the Fairy Rings jewellery & stilettos from Sax Shepherd Designs for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Add to that a few sultry makeups from elymode for the Cosmetic Fair and nothing else is really needed.
