When it gets colder outside, you need to do what you can to stay warm. The Naughty gacha from deviousMind together with this throne from Roawenwood seemed to me like an excellent way of heating things up. Of course, I had to rope in (ahem) some help from Ran, but fortunately he did not need much persuading. ;) In keeping with the seasonal theme, I added a fabulous hair with an optional string of lights from Wasabi as well as some additional decor from Libertine.
As soon as I spotted the Imperial gacha by Enfant Terrible, I knew I had to play it a few times to get something together for Ran. He’s often too busy to be doing much shopping himself these days, but he’s happy to have things found for him and then get called for some photos. With my usual gacha luck, I didn’t get any rares or accessories, just several different colours of the main outfit, but it is quite nice on its own. I also picked up one of the laurels from the Marketplace and then set the scene with decor items from Libertine. My own outfit is from the Dreaming Thicket and my hair is an upcoming release from Stealthic.
A week of Fantasy Faire blogging did a number on my creativity, because after we’d been off to the year’s first boxer show, I found myself unable to think of a photo for several days. In the end, I decided it was time to play around with our setup of Libertine furniture and props again. That turned out to be just the right framing for the latest release from Voluptas Virtualis, a zippered little number that doesn’t cover too much.
At first, this was going to be all about this nifty Grecian-inspired armour from Noble Creations. But then I ended up making a new shape and using a new skin from Skin Fair, so of course I had to add in some nice body shots as well, though I passed on doing close ups of all tones since I had decided on this bright red hair and it really didn’t go with the darker tones.
Time has rather run away from me this week, in part because I’ve ended up spending too much time trying to reorganize and clean up a room to fit in a treadmill for our dog. As a result, I have been waltzing around in the new gacha set from Voluptas Virtualis for a few days without getting around to doing the blog. In the end, I ended up deciding to show off some of the options included on the HUD through a video. This also allowed me to demonstrate the bento animations included with the Snowlace Cookies from the Plastik. I also took the opportunity to highlight some perennial decor favourites.
After two days of at least a little bit of cold weather and sunlight, its back to dreary and grey. Breeze, our boxer, is quite disappointed that he didn’t get to go tracking today as well (two days in a row counts as a new habit for him), but I had to focus on some less fun stuff such as book keeping. I also wanted to show off a recent acquisition, namely the Nicolina bathing tub from Trompe Loeil, available at the current round of FaMESHed. It went nicely together with some pieces from Libertine’s “In Praise of Bacchus” set and the Rustic Fireplace from HEXtraordinary for a past Deco(c)rate. I am not precisely wearing much, but I do want to point out the pretty crown from lassitude & ennui. I also had planned to show off the Logan head from Logo that Ran is wearing, but none of the shots turned out to be quite right for showing the head.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
