Otherworldly

Frou Frou

A lingerie-focused event sounds like just the thing for Second Life and in this post I am showing the first of two releases from Voluptas Virtualis for Frou Frou. Also featured are some lovely new earrings from the Plastik, a pavillion from Trompe Loeil and the new VIP Group Gift from Truth.

Here Comes the Sun

It took its time, but I think its safe to say that summer is finally here. Of course, the Swedish summer is notorious for being very changeable and sometimes quite wet and chilly, so you can’t always tell it apart from late spring and early autumn. Today, however, the weather is nice (if a bit windy) and I am just indoors because I am still tired after a weekend of dog shows and related activities. But at least that gives me a chance to catch up on some blogging and today it is all about the swimwear.

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.

Watercolours

Candied Violets is a new store from Sohma Dix behind Paper Moon and Hekate. It has a more modern, but still quite whimsical style, and I am showing one item from its first batch of releases. And speaking of the other two stores, they have just returned after a hiatus and are both offering reopening sales that you will want to check out.

Ethereal Lounging

The March round of We Love Role-Play opens at 3 pm today. I wont be home by then, so I will have to check it out in a few days, but fortunately I have some shiny things to show you as a sneak peak. Judging by the previews, this round will have a good mix of items, but the jewellery may be particularly outstanding this time as evidenced by these releases from Luminary, Aisling and ieQED. You are also getting a better look at the Rebecca skin which Adam n Eve will be releasing the Skin Fair.

Alchemy Returned

Alchemy Immortalis are back. While their beautiful sims have not returned with them, they have opened up an in-world shop once again, and already there is a huge new release available—a massive collection of Art Deco inspired rings. There are few things as hard as rings to do justice in a photo, so please make sure to take a look at the rings in their store where they have been rezzed out and can be viewed in amazing, intricate detail. What I will try to do in this post, however, is to tell you a bit about them (as well as the other items featured in these shots).

Dame a la Licorne

More unicorn treasures today, from the Last Unicorn round of Enchantment. This includes the first item I have blogged by Les Encantades as well as several pieces by the Plastik and a contribution from Hekate.

More ROMPing Around

My last ROMP post was, all considered, rather demure. But with the Saxton Bedroom from Jian, things heat up considerably. You can also get a good look in these shots at the full-body freckles from PXL and some new items for the relaunched My Slink Obsession event.

Bar Hopping

The May edition of My Attic at the Deck is in full swing and Bushu is once again participating with a new pair of sexy, dangerously high heels that give you legs that seem to go on forever. Paired with a little black dress from the Plastik, I was all set to leave my usual fantasy worlds behind for a night out.

An Invitation

I am still digging my way out of a bit of a hole, but I do have a lot of inspiring things in my inventory that wants my attention, such as this outfit by the Plastik which I’ve had on for some days but not quite found the right setting for. But then I picked up one of Trompe Loeil‘s new items for Collabor88 and it started coming together.

Inspired By

Not my usual style, but I wanted to do something that fit a pose set that I picked up from elymode. Then I spotted the bodysuit from Luxuria for Fifty Linden Friday and Ran suggested that I go with the white version (you also get a black and a nude) and use a more austere build than what we normally go for.

Cold Daggers

Elymode is back. After a long hiatus, Elysium Eilde has returned to Second Life and reopened her store with new clothes, makeup and poses. I am showing one of the new lingerie sets in this post and it comes with a full set of appliers for Slink, Belleza and Omega.

I am also teasing a few releases that will be available at Gothmas by Gaslight when it opens tomorrow. This is where you’ll want to do your holiday shopping if you prefer it with a dark twist.
