Otherworldly

In a Pickle

Roawenwood’s latest release is not for the timid, as the somewhat NSFW name (see credits!) would suggest. There are plenty of couple poses (even some threesome poses) and they’re all rather forceful. The fact that this is an outdoor scene as well made me think of Greek nymphs fleeing amourous gods in the woodlands, and that’s where we ended up with this setup, even though the Mara outfit from Adam n Eve has more of a Gorean than Grecian feel to it. I am also wearing Wasabi’s latest hair, Pickle, which gave me the title for the post. Finally, I have another new alaskametro skin, this one is called Yazmin and is available at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival benefiting Doctors Without Borders.

Market Day

There’s a new event in town, the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, which features items for Legacy Perky, Maitreya Lara’s Petite add-on and the Petite add-on for Slink Physique Original and Slink Physique Hourglass. In short, the body variations that offer support for a smaller bust. In this post, I am featuring a tunic by Faida & Velvet Whip which I am wearing on the Legacy Perky body. To set the scene, I am using two different releases from Roawenwood plus a very atmospheric backdrop from Paleto. I am also wearing another skin from the alaskametro Garden Party hunt.

Bringing the Heat

The unusually warm weather has changed into a regular Swedish summer with cooler temperatures and plenty of rain. Time then, to bring the heat in Second Life, with some naughty play using a bondage wall rack from Roawenwood that comes in an RLV and a non-RLV version. This decorative set includes an array of whips, floggers and paddles and includes 20 couple animations. There’s definitely nothing PG about this set, though there is a sweet cuddle for use at the end of the play session. The bondage rack is part of the Kivna Karcero series of furniture and decor so there are several matching pieces out already.

I am, btw, absolutely in love with the curl texture on the latest Stealthic release, Embers. I hope we’ll get more styles using it.

Roleplay Redeux

Redeux opens today at noon SL time and there you will find the Townhall from Del-ka Aedilis at 50% off. This is quite a large build (footprint is 26 x 27 m
and land impact is 174) with an open arched gallery, a spacious courtyard and several rooms both on the first and second floor. In one of the rooms on the second floor, I setup the Scribery Alcove from Roawenwood for the current round of We Love Role-Play. Both Ran and I are wearing new outfits from the Muses and these can also be found at We Love Role-Play.

The Palace Treasure

I’ve had this build, using components from Jammin, sitting around half-finished for ages. But this week I tired of that corner of the sim looking less put together than the rest and with considerable help from Ran with the alignment of the pieces it finally got sorted out. The decor might still get a few things added to it, but I am pretty happy about where it is at now. Not so coincidentally, it turned out to be the perfect spot for showing of some new pretties from Skin Within, deviousMind and Stealthic.

Mistress Angela

The latest releases from Voluptas Virtualis are both for the current round of the Fetish Fair, so it is no wonder that they paired very well with the Kivna Karcero Throne from Roawenwood which features both maledom and femdom animations, with more room given to the latter. The Angela outfit with the Duchess ballet heels definitely called for the poses from the femdom menues, so I called in Ran to be my boytoy.

Fantasy Faire 2020 - The Duchess

I ran out of a bit of steam after the first week of more intensive Fantasy Faire blogging, but now I am back to remind you that you have until May 10th to explore and shop at the 18 sims that make up the Fairelands. For this post, I decided to focus a lot on decor items, featuring pieces from Harshlands, the Looking Glass and Roawenwood, as well as a lovely dress from Belle Epoque which actually is a tie-in to the pieces from Harshland.

Ravishing Rafferty at Skin Fair 2020

It can hardly have passed anyone by that the biggest skin event of the SL year, the Skin Fair, opened on the 13th of March and will continue until the 29th. Right now the two sims are still pretty packed, but it has started easing up a tiny bit, at least when it isn’t peak hours. I’ve got a booth there myself this year, with four new Kanon shapes, though the one I am using in this post is actually not one of them. I had made mine to go with the three exclusive skins by Adam n Eve, and then sachi went and added a fourth just as the fair was about to open! So, I’ve made a shape for the Rafferty skin using LeLutka Erin, but I haven’t had time to package it yet.

The Prince’s Property

In time for Valentine’s Day, Roawenwood has put out a set which I guess one could call romantic BDSM at We Love Role-Play, the “Yearning Heart Collaring Ceremony”. Well, that was an excellent excuse for breaking out a silk set from the Plastik/Petrichor & Lune for myself and getting Ran to wear a newly bought and very princely necklace from Old Treasures for the current round of Enchantment. Which, btw, I will be showing you more things from soon since I may have acquired yet another Teeglepet horse.

Behave

La vie en pose, the naughty edition, is now open. Infiniti is taking part with a set of single poses and a couple pose using a riding crop, and this time I elected to focus on the couple pose. It is called Behave and I love the dynamic it creates between the characters—just who is in charge here?

For the outfits as well as the decor, both Ran and I dug into our inventories. Ran is wearing Stitched and I am wearing Roawenwood, whereas the decor is a mix of Roawenwood and Senzafine.

Snowstorm and Slink News

For this post, I combined a new release from Slink and a pretty, wintery gacha from Fallen Gods with some beautiful seasonal decor items from Libertine and Roawenwood. The Slink release might possibly have called for a video, but I’ve experimented with just showing it with an animated gif. What is it, then? You’ll have to read on and see. First, I wanted to highlight the Snowstorm gacha from Fallen Gods, which you can find at The Liasion Collaborative. It is a unisex tattoo gacha with snow flakes in gold, white and ice (blue) for head and body which includes both Omega appliers and BOM layers.

Winter Warmth

I would never find the time to change up our sim with the seasons, but I do like having a permanent winter area and it is probably one of my favourite parts of the sim. I love snowy trees and the way light and shadow plays on snow. It was of course the perfect spot to setup the firepit from Roawenwood, so that I could warm myself by it while wrapped in this lovely gown from Junbug. To the existing forest, I added some variety in the shape of a few of the dead trees released by Dysfunctionality for 50 Linden Friday.

Against the Wall

Sometimes, the right place for a bit of romance (alright, naughtiness) is a secluded corner of the castle, leaning up against a tapestry that keeps the cold stone wall away from you. After all, beds and couches can get a bit tedious in the long run. That’s when Roawenwood has your back (quite literally) with this new release for We Love Role-Play. The “Up Against the Wall Hanging Tapestry” offers nine different textures, 1 casual talking animation, 17 cuddles & kisses and 19 adult animations. I quite like the animation selection and it is a really nice way to have access to couple animations in locations where, for example, a bed would be out of place.

A Last Romp

The current round of Romp ends tomorrow, so I wanted to squeeze in a look at two things from the event—a furniture set from Roawenwood and a pair of stockings from Luxuria. The furniture has poses for two and three avatars at once as well, but I didn’t have any extra bodies handy for these photos. The idea is that it is a “kennel” bed set (for girls, not dogs, even if my dogs would have liked the lower bed!) with solo animations that include various lays, a set of tasks (knitting, sewing, embroidering) and a set of beauty routine animations. The work animations auto-rez and attach props, but the beauty ones don’t, which I am not sure whether that is intentional or a glitch. There is also a “sisters” menu for two avatars, with hairbrushing and gossping, an adult menu for two female avatars, and a threesome menu (two females, one male) with cuddles and sex. The style of the set is pretty versatile, here I have it in a fairly rustic setting but I could see this kind of wood finish in a more modern room too.

Luxuria’s Heaven Thigh Highs (the writing on the back reads “this way to heaven”), which includes both appliers and system layers, comes in eight colours for easy matching with lingerie—or with nothing at all. ;)

Autumn Redeux

Redeux is now open for the October round, running from the 14th to the 21st. There are plenty of discounted items on offer, including a L$50 offer from each merchant, and you will find everything from fashion to home & garden items. I decided to begin with a feature of the latter, showing some medieval buildings from Harshlands and some autumn decor by Artisan Fantasy.
