A rustic wooden bed with texture options (three wood colours, five fabric colours) and many, many animations is the featured item of this post. The Vilnai bed comes from Roawenwood but it is by no means limited to a roleplay setup. The style and texturing of the bed will fit into any rustic home. It is also done in the same wood style as the bondage star previously released from Roawenwood and briefly seen in this post.
Also shown in this post are two new hairs: Marcus (unisex style) from Wasabi and Bewkie, the March VIP Group Gift from Truth.
Stardust has three lovely sets of tattoos out at the Skin Fair (which is approaching its end, so make sure to visit if you haven’t already!) and to best show them off I needed a no clothing scenario. Fortunately, I also had this chair from Roawenwood to blog, which in addition to male and female single poses has several menus of couple poses. I decided to make use of my favourite little desert camp (with gorgeous tents from Paper Moon) and called in Ran to play the noble with the pretty serving girl. He was happy to oblige. ;)
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.
Today, I will have to settle for being predictable with the mood of my post. I really couldn’t do anything else once I tried out the Heartstones Lovers Dance Circle from Roawenwood; it has a really lovely selection of standing couple poses, something I suddenly realised I have way too little off. I had a very hard time picking which poses to shoot and I kept wishing I had done this as another video just to show more of it. It also turned out to be an excellent way to show off two new We Love Role-Play releases—a gown from Senzafine and a hair from Tableau Vivant—and a Noble Creations release for Enchantment.
Spending the morning at the stables is always a good way to start the day. I am helping start up a horse that has been resting after an injury and this time of the year the cold weather can make that a rather “exciting” affair. Fortunately, she’s very well behaved and has been keeping all hooves on the ground. I suppose I should add a “knock on wood” here, because you never know.
My Second Life is rather undressed at the moment; I have ended up with a variety of more or less naughty things to review. In this post, a harness from Voluptas Virtualis plus decor from the Plastik and Roawenwood. I will need to feature the Roawenwood item in more detail later on, I didn’t have a playmate on hand for these photos. I’ve also made another shape for Vista’s new Diana head, this time for an alaskametro skin.
Last Friday Vista Animations released their second bento mesh head, Diana. As I had purchased Lia when it came out and been very pleasantly surprised by its quality, I wasted no time in demoing and ultimately buying Diana. It certainly did not hurt that she is currently on sale for L$2000 (regular price will be L$2500) PLUS if you purchased Lia already and buy Diana on the Marketplace, you get an instant rebate of another L$1000 which makes it a truly excellent deal.
Since I already had a vlog in mind for Roawenwood’s We Love Role-Play release, I decided to combine this with a look at Diana as well. Also featured is a new outfit from Dreaming Thicket and a new hair from Stealthic.
Roawenwood has a delicious Valentine and Anti-Valentine gacha out at the Gacha Garden, with a table full of cookies, cupcakes and assorted treats whether you are blissfully in love or have a distinctly darker outlook on things. For this setup, I went with the latter option and filled the table with such treats as Broken Hearts Cookies and Voodoo Doll Cookies, among others. On the table you can also see the Seed of Inspiration, a bird cage with some charming contents.
It is not easy to find motivation to stay at the computer when we finally have some snow outside. Or time, for that matter, since the dog would prefer to be outside playing all the time. (Un)fortunately, the snow also came with a rather cold northern wind, which makes cozying up inside a little more appealing. The dog still insists, though, and sighs in a very suffering fashion if he doesn’t get what he want.
Given the cold, I opted for a warmer scenario for this post. I had picked up this rug with massage and cuddle animations from Roawenwood during a prior 25 Linden Tuesday and it came in handy for shooting one of the new sets from Voluptas Virtualis.
Alaskametro has recently released added three new faces to her skinline and I will be featuring them one at a time. And since she releases all her skins for LeLutka, Catwa and Omega (plus as system skins, even!), I will be featuring each of them on a different mesh head from LightStar. I really wish more brands would include Omega versions of their skins, to allow for more variety in head and skin combinations.
The first skin featured is Harmony, an in-store release of a skin in two darker tones, which I’ve decided to pair with the Maya head. Also shown in this post is a bodysuit from Voluptas Virtualis and a suspenion rack from Roawenwood.
Alaskametro has a skin and cosmetics gacha out at On9 called Lady Venom and that seemed like just the right thing to pair with this leather mini dress from Voluptas Virtualias and the short, tousled style by Wasabi Pills. I struggled with the right setting for this (I am really out of my comfort zone with modern looks these days—clearly, I need to work on it) but decided that this dominatrix couch from Roawenwood had a nice look and some suitable poses.
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.
This will be quick and dirty (well, okay, it could have been dirtier…) since we got back from two weeks of vacation yesterday and are taking off for the WorldCon in Helsinki in a few hours. I haven’t had the chance to blog at all during my vacation as the connection was too poor and my laptop too sluggish, so I have a list a mile long of review copies to get through. I’ve also not had the chance to check out any events that opened in this time frame, but most of the catch-up will have to wait until next Monday when I am back home for real. In the meantime, I simply had to show one of the many new releases from Voluptas Virtualis as well as the new skin from alskametro and two new releases from the Plastik.
Between a whirlwind trip to Madrid for a book signing and interview and packing for our proper vacation, I haven’t had a chance to blog for a good while. As it happened, the wait led to a nice opportunity to pair up Roawenwood’s latest set with a new collaboration from Fallen Gods and Faida. It also allowed for some naughty shots, and I never turn down an opportunity for those.
I am a little bit behind, only now getting around to giving you a look at the Vintage Fair. But I am starting to be less and less eager to beat down the doors of an event on the first day—much nicer to be able to browse with a bit less lag. As the Vintage Fair stretches over two whole sim, you will need a fair bit of time to go through it even with less of a crowd around, so now is definitely a good time. In this post, I am taking a look at Adam n Eve, deviousMind, Roawenwood and Paper Moon, plus a hair from Wasabi Pills (not from the Vintage Fair).
I will have to be a little briefer than usual today as I’ve done something to the right side of my neck that makes using my right arm quite uncomfortable. I didn’t even manage to ride my full hour today, and that’s how you know something is serious since I have suffered through riding lessons with all sorts of aches and pains. ;)
Anyway, what I have for you today is a campsite from Roawenwood, a harness from Noble Creations and a pair of very useful applier tights from Stitched—for both male and female avatars, yay. As you can see, I am “Frey” today, wearing a new group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins on my LightStar head.
