It probably won’t last over Christmas, but right now it is pretty and white outside my RL window as well, making it particularly appealing to setup another cosy holiday scene in SL too. For this one, I decided to use the dining set by also Known as from Redeux while I dressed warmly in knits from Applique Chic and the Plastik (I am also wearing a cute pair of heels that are matched to the leg warmers) and wore a new hair (with metallic antler accessory) from Wasabi. Poses are, once more, by Serendipity.
This is of course a weekend full of great deals in Second Life and I thought I would share just a few from the flood of Black Friday/Black Weekend sales. I rather prefer the virtual sales in Second Life to the physical ones; they satisfy the shopping urge without making me feel horribly consumerist. After all, a mesh head or two more won’t tax the environment that much! I haven’t actually shopped LOGO’s fantastic sale yet (75% off their heads and hud!), but Ran did pick up their second male head since he’s been very happy with the first one. However, I do have a hair to share from Astrology (50% off all regularly priced items) and a skin from Lumae (70% off all 2018 skins with Skin Addiction group tag). Plus this “swamp girl” outfit from Noble Creations, though that is not a sale item but a new release for Whimsical. Finally, Serendipity does have several heavily discounted pose sets right now, plus 50% on everything else.
Without any help from cute cartoon animals, this Cinderella has to sort out a gown for the ball on her own. I just love the kind of scenes you can setup with well-made roleplay props and some of the best definitely come from Roawenwood. The latest set is out at We Love Role-Play and offers not only a few different work animations but also options for rezzing different in-progress garments on the dummy. The top and skirt seen here is one such option, the dress shown in the background another.
Before sending me this outfit, Chandra Meehan of deviousMind asked if I was up for it, given what I said in my last post about spiders. I assured her that as long as the spiders weren’t animesh and crawling all over me, I would probably be fine. That said, there are a lot of spiders in this outfit! And I am not even wearing all of them here; there are a few more flexi add-ons, some applier layers (with or without blood) and some other hair/head ornaments (with spiders, of course). Additionally, there’s a nice accessory available for the Once Upon a Nightmare hunt.
Every witch needs a familiar—a cat, a raven or maybe a rat? In this case, two of them, a cuddly companion on my shoulder and a cheeky little fellow wandering on my worktable. Both come from Jian’s gacha at the Epiphany, with the shoulder companion being the rare item. Jian has been doing almost exclusively animal gachas or animal sets of late and are a great source for pets and companions. I hope they move into animesh when that is released, that would be really interesting.
I might be getting ahead of myself seasonally, but I couldn’t resist a wintry landscape for the very grey-themed look I had created with Lumae’s Elentari skin, Grier from Wasabi and the Fiona dress in grey from lassitude & ennui. As it happened, I had a couple of very nice bargains from Redeux to show off as well, one being the Winter Castle modular set from Mushilu (just L$100!). The other? A lovely pose set from Serendipity.
I just got the opportunity to start blogging for Lumae and since they are currently having a big sale and a photo contest it seemed like a perfect time to introduce the brand here on my blog even though there is no new release out right now. You can read more about the sale and the photo contest on Lumae’s Facebook page.
Lumae releases faces for a range of different heads, including Omega, and provides both natural and fantasy skin tones. The skin I picked for this post is made for LeLutka and she is called Deia, here shown in T6 (out of 8 in total). At the end of the post, I have included a list of what is included with a purchase of Deia.
They call her the Rose. Never forget that all roses have thorns. This one might hide hers, and the sweet scent of her flowers will distract you, but you would do best to handle her with caution.
I’ve spent a fair bit of time at the Rose sim since the Fantasy Faire opened, and between this dress by the Muses and a brand-new mask from Illusions, I couldn’t help but to imagine a mysterious courtesan who might just make her home in this kind of place.
I really like the field of tulips from Little Branch for the Victoriana round of Genre, so today I changed around the season on one of my sky landscapes and planted some tulips around the ballet academy build from Nomad. I think it turned out to be a rather charming backdrop for the gown from Anachron, also from Genre.
The Victoriana round of Genre is now open and its time for me to showcase a couple of more items that you will find there. One is from a staple here at the blog, a lovely gown from Senzafine, and the other is a piece of decor from Velvet Whip, a brand I have featured on a few occasions in the past but not with any regularity. I’ve also got another Skin Fair release to show as well as a new item from the Plastik.
We Love Role-Play opens its August round today and it looks like a very strong collection. I’ve gone for an all-out fantasy look for my first post from this round, featuring new items from Lumae, Trap and Alchemy as well as a new hair from Wasabi Pills and horns from an earlier round by the Plastik. There are so many great accessories at the event this time that
