Otherworldly

Back to School

This is all rather inappropriate, but once I got the Alice boots from lassitude & ennui and the thigh high socks from Luxuria, I couldn’t help but to pair them with a couple of recent gachas—Anachron’s School Book Gacha and Roawenwood’s Kinky Back to School Gacha. My inventory is distinctly short on school uniforms, so went for the Vickie corset from Voluptas Virtualis, which I have shown before but which has so many colour and texture options that it certainly doesn’t hurt to show it again.

Bound

The first edition of the Bound subscription box came out today at midnight SL time (I believe you can still subscribe for 24 hours after the release and get it for L$2000) and I have a preview for you in the shape of the item from Voluptas Virtualis, a sexy harness and mask with lots of options via the included HUD. I paired it with a pair of stockings from Luxuria and a new hair from Wasabi Pills with a bit of an edge to it.

LightStar Marian

Following my video review of LightStar’s Athena mesh head, I am now taking a look at the second female Bento head from LightStar. This one is called Marian and has a softer look than Athena, who has a bolder face. Like Athena, Marian will soon be updated to 1.3, but what you are seeing here is version 1.2. The updates are taking a little longer than I might have indicated in my video and this is because the creator has decided to merge the different head layers into one object as well as merge the different HUDs into one. This will definitely offer a better user experience and deal with some of the concerns I voiced in the video. The updated heads will also include a matching body applier. For these photos, however, I am once again using PXL’s Heidi applier, this time in the SunKissed tone.

Industrial Flowers

With so many events having started around the same time in January, it is easy for some to go overlooked next to others. For example, have you been to ROMP or spent all your time trying to get into the Epiphany? If gachas aren’t your fancy, but a bit of elegant kink is, then you don’t want to risk missing the current round of ROMP. After all, who doesn’t need some pole dancing poses and dead-sexy lingerie? Also featured in this post is a new release from the Plastik for Shiny Shabby.

Deco(c)rate Unboxing January 2017

A new year and a new Deco(c)rate. I couldn’t resist subscribing for January as well since I liked the two previous boxes and since the previews looked tempting. The theme, “Frozen Elegance”, also sounded like it would suit me well. As it happens, it most definitely did and I was very pleased with the contents of this Deco(c)rate. I ramble on about this at some length in the unboxing video, which is a little later than usual since I spent most of Sunday at a dog show. I will blame it on being tired that I forgot to take off the HUD for the FATElashes, apologies if that is distracting to have on the video. I seem to mentally edit out the presence of my HUDs.

The Big Slink Update

A few days ago, Siddean Munro announced that a big update of all three Slink bodies has been completed. She also released video tutorials for the core feature of the update, namely the brand new HUD. I have been playing with the new HUD for a while and I’ve found it a huge improvement both in terms of layout and functionality. To add my own spin to the tutorials available, I decided to spend Christmas Day recording another video.

LeLutka Simone

It took a lot of demoing, tweaking and thinking, but eventually I did decide to purchase LeLutka’s Bento-enabled mesh head, Simone. And even though there’s already a great video by Strawberry Singh looking at the head in detail, I wanted to make one myself, discussing some of my thoughts about mesh heads and shape-making for mesh heads. I talk a bit about what I like (and don’t like quite so much) about the head, go over some of the functions of the hud and test a few different shapes that I have been working on for this head.

Lazy Holidays

I am a little tired after a day spent in town, for Christmas markets and that last bit of holiday shopping, so a couple of lazy, laidback shots seemed about right. I’ve put together a few items from the December Deco(c)rate and found myself some pretty things to wear, including another release from the Midwinter Fair.

Quiet Time

Trompe Loeil offers both a cottage and a sofa for the December round of Collabor88 and it was the sofa that caught my eye, with its elegant curved lines and rich leather textures. It also seemed like an excellent way to show off some lingerie from Luxuria and to get Ran down to his boxers.

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.

Nowhere

The annual horror game from Pulse Games opened a couple of days ago and I thought it would be fun to make a video of part of the game play. There will be some spoilers but the video does not cover the whole game so there are still plenty of surprises left. And as usual there’s tons of prizes to pick up as you move through the various locations and it is definitely not easy to find all of them!  The game starts at Sn@tch and spans across multiple sims. Just one tip if you head out there before watching my video—mind the bees!

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…

Bed of Roses

A beautiful set of lingerie from Luxuria, soon to be released at The Liaison Collaborative which opens later today, draped in body jewellery by Aisling and with the scene accentuated by decorations and trinkets by the latter brand, in both cases from We Love Role-Play. Quite the change from the shots I did earlier today, but that is a big part of the charm of Second Life for me.

Briony in Bondage

Roslin Petion of Luxuria is putting out a steady stream of sexy applier lingerie, with one of her latest offerings being for the Gacha Garden. I decided to pair it with a new release from Aisling and a new hair from Wasabi Pills, while also taking the opportunity to show off another tone of alaskametro’s/a> new skin, this time on the classic avatar head rather than a mesh head.

Scrub it, boy!

Romp opened yesterday and is celebrating its anniversary with an opulent two-sim fair, full of naughty treats. I decided to make use of a prop from Roawenwood from a previous round of Romp to give Ran something to do while I dressed myself up in new releases from Luxuria and Aisling. The gorgeous hair I am wearing is actually the gift from Analog Dog at Hair Fair, which opened today.
