For some reason, I had the hardest time getting this photo sorted out. I don’t know how many different locations and backdrops I tried before finally deciding to slip into this new dress from the Muses and all of a sudden getting the idea that it looked a bit pirate-y. The tattoos from Silentsparrow (for this past 50 Linden Friday) may not be classical pirate tattoos exactly, but why be limited by that? I am also giving you a second look at one of Adam n Eve’s Skin Fair exclusives, subtly made up with some makeup from alaskametro.
I have branched out into another brand of bento mesh heads with the Barbara head from GA.EG and of course that was a good excuse for making another video. I discuss the features of the head, take a look at how it responds to sliders and test a few skins on it. Also showcased in this video and the accompanying photo are a couple of new skins from Adam n Eve, a corset from Schadenfreude and Silentsparrow, hair from Wasabi Pills and a couple of new releases from the Plastik and alaskametro.
Today saw the release of the first Deco(c)rate, another subscription box from MadPea Productions. As the (rather clever) name suggests, this is a box focused not on wearables but instead on home and garden items, and the theme for the first round was “November Rain”. While I expected that the box would have a mainly modern focus, I still decided to take a chance on the first one since I do enjoy having a lot of props and builds on hand. It turned out to have been a very good decision as there are a lot of great pieces in this first Deco(c)rate.
For this round of We Love Role-Play, lassitude & ennui has created what can only be described as a classic female sword & sorcery outfit. My first thought was to shoot these pictures at Kingdom of Sand, which has been my go-to place for desert environments for years…only to learn that it disappeared last year! Fortunately, I came across the Tajukistan Tahari sim and its gladiatorial arena was just what I needed. Still, Kingdom of Sand will be greatly missed as a photo location and I think I will need to make another effort to turn our own little desert corner into something more usable. Alas, my landscaping skills are limited. But, enough about that!
The Fetish Fair ends on September 2nd, so you’re nearing your last chance to check out what’s on offer. Roawenwood has two new releases at the fair, both at a 50% discount, and I am taking a look at one of them in this post: the Enchained dance set.
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.
Fortunately, I don’t need my voice to write a blog post, because its been mostly gone for the last few days thanks to this virus. I’ve also had an incredibly sore throat and I am just so done with being sick right now. The weather has been glorious (if a bit too hot) and I’ve mostly been coughing in bed. But, enough about my misery and onto a mix of new items from among others Noble Creations, ieQED and Silentsparrow. I decided to setup this scene in our new castle by Fanatik—if I am going to decorate every room, I will need a lot of new furnishings!
I am somewhat distracted at the moment as I am getting up at 3 am tomorrow morning to get ready for my first-even official dressage competition. But, before I head to bed much earlier than usual, I wanted to show off the latest tattoo release from Silentsparrow together with some steampunk-inspired wings from Noble Creations.
Tuli has a beautiful new skin out at the Skin Fair and she’s a definite must to demo if you like pale skins (but naturally there are darker tones than this as well). Silentsparrow also has a new release out, another beautiful tattoo, and I am showing an early look at alaskametro‘s next release for Whore Couture.
The latest release from Silent Sparrow, a beautiful tattoo, inspired me to ditch my clothes and head for the woods wearing nothing but the latest set from ieQED. I opted for summery woods this time, however, even though it is still very much winter here in Sweden. But I do like having our sim setup to cater to different seasons all at once, even if it perhaps lacks in cohesion that way.
Alright, alright, Despite my earlier protests, it would appear I have been bitten by the gatcha bug. And for once, I’ve had a bit of a luck: at the March round of the Arcade I managed to win one of the rare carousels from Culprit. Normally, pink isn’t my thing (though I’ve started to change my mind of late) but when you have a carousel with unicorns and one is pink with hearts on…well, you don’t have much choice, do you? And, as it happened, this gave me the perfect use for the adorable Monoceros Constellation Tattoo from Silentsparrow for the current round of Collaborr88.
