The lovely part of autumn is in the past now, with all the leaves torn down by wind and darkened to a rather unattractive brown by rain. Fortunately, it is easy to recall it in Second Life, where the autumn trees are always at their prettiest, with crisp leaves of red and gold.
I have been engaging in a lot of rereading lately and my latest choice may be inspiring a few more or less NSFW pictures as I decided that it was finally time (well overdue, really) to revisit Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series. I had (shame on me) almost forgotten how delicious that series can be. Now, if only someone in Second Life would make an appropriate set of eyes for an anguisette and perhaps a few marques as well…
But I digress (a little, anyway). However, certain elements of Kushiel’s Dart did inspire these shots. But when I started putting it together, it was also with a mind to show off the lovely stockings from Senzafine, so the clothing (or lack thereof) have a lot to do with that as well.
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!
Its that time of the year again, when Second Life fills up with pumpkins and all manners of ghostly and scary creatures. Halloween may still be a few weeks away, but the season of the macabre is in full swing in-world. The Salem event opened a few days ago, offering both regular items and gachas, and there’s definitely a feel of Autumn and Halloween over We Love Role-Play as well. And guess what? There’s another video to go with this post. I just couldn’t help myself after I setup my little witchy retreat and filled it with bats flitting here and there.
This month Genre welcomes you to the Burlesque round. With pieces from Senzafine and deviousMind, I decided to stage the scene of a painting in progress. The Kiki masque from Senzafine comes in six colours and makes for a lovely accessory for both lingerie and gowns. And Lola la Riche from deviousMind is a very sexy jewelled harness for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass. The updo is from Calico for Hairology and is called Luna II
Roawenwood made this lovely harp in three wood colours for Indie Teepee. I struggled a little at first in finding a setting that I liked for the harp, but then I remember this little island that I made in my latest reshaping of the sim and where I had placed the stone circle from HEXtraordinary. The setting then determined the rest of the items, a more modern look than I had at first envisioned but with a touch of whimsy about it.
I am feeling knackered after a jumping lesson on a horse that must have a fair bit of sloth mixed into its genes. Whew. But even so, I managed to stage a little scene to show off the latest gown from Senzafine together with some furnishings from Noble Creations. And I dragged on Ran to do double duty as photographer and pretty prop.
This one is almost all about We Love Role-Play, which underscores what a great round the current one is. And not just for the girls as there’s definitely some nice things for the guys available as well, as evidenced by Ran’s presence in these photos.
The sim of Dangarnon (built by Death Row Designs) portrays a fallen, darkness-claimed version of one of last years sims, the kingdom of Andolys. I dared to venture out into this dark city and found a little corner of reminders of its original glory.
There are thousands of hairstyles available in Second Life, yet it can still be hard to find more specialized styles for roleplay looks, so I am always thrilled when I come across one such as the style offered by Anachron at Genre’s medieval round. Finding a gown to go with such a hair is certainly much easier than the reverse; thanks to talented creators like Synjari Myriam of Senzafine I am rarely lacking a new dress for the occasion.
Roleplay-oriented gowns in Second Life are quite often on the fancier side, suitable for the ladies of the realm. But sometimes you want to portray other sides of the story and fortunately Senzafine has a new gown out at Genre‘s Medieval round (which is awesome in general) which is perfect for that purpose. Feel like playing Cinderella before she found her prince? Now you have the right dress for the occasion. And if you visit We Love Role-Play, you can pick up a great oven and cookware set from Noble Creations so that you can get your work done too.
I wasn’t quite sure in what direction to take this post, but then the new wolves from Jian for We Love Role-Play (which opens today!) landed in my inventory. All of a sudden, a more gothic scene was born, in a dark and lonely manor out on the English moors. A grand bookcase from Noble Creations helps set the scene and a few pieces of heirloom jewellery from the Plastik finishes off the look.
I only came across the brand Noble Creations quite recently, but I was intrigued by what I saw of their releases. When the opportunity arose to apply as a blogger for them, I decided to give it a go. The first releases I will have the chance to feature are their offerings forThe Fantasy Collective, which opened Sunday at noon.
The Fantasy Collective has just opened and Tuli has another skin with a Halloween theme out for this event. As it happened, I thought it went rather nicely with Senzafine‘s latest release. The resulting look was what I wore as I checked out Carver’s End, this year’s horror survival game from Pulse games.
