Otherworldly

Crusader

Among the releases for the current round of We Love Role-Play are a set of armour each for male and female avatars by Noble Creations, each including fits for several different mesh bodies. To show off the female armour in appropriate surroundings, I setup in the stone circle from LORE with the gorgeous castle from Fanatik in the background. I also brought on my four-legged alt wearing the Teegle Bento Horse Avatar and a new tack set from Cheval D’or.

Shadow Box Unboxing October 2017

The second Shadow Box from Death Row Designs was released earlier this week, once again presenting a Light and a Dark version of a similar set of decor items. Do note that it says “similar” and not “identical”; the idea with the Shadow Box is not simply to recolour and do some small tweaks to the dark versions—sometimes they can be substantially different, but still on the same basic theme.

As with the first one, I have a video to share, though this is more of a reveal than an unboxing as I really wanted to show the items arranged as I might use them rather than simply rezzed out at random. To learn more about Shadow Box and how to subscribe, make sure to visit the DRD website linked above. And remember, if you get all six boxes in a series, there is a bonus item at the end.

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.

Looting All the Boxes

The Lootbox Gacha is opening later today and I have a preview for you from the Plastik. It inspired me to setup a little scene to show off a selection of all the pieces available in the Apothecari Gacha. The Lootbox event is a little different from other gachas in that it offers a Lootbox in addition to regular rares and commons, which can offer things like special sets of commons, ultra rares, etc. I’ve seen a couple more sets in addition to the one from the Plastik and they look like a lot of fun.

Deco(c)rate Unboxing June 2017

After a break for a few months, I picked up the June Deco(c)rate and did another unboxing video. The theme of “Enchanted Dreams” sounded like it would be right up my alley and I was definitely quite pleased by what I found in the crate.

Gypsy Girl

A few days ago, Truth sent a new hair to his VIP group. This group has been excellent value but this gift was particularly interesting as it is the first release with brand new textures as well as a styling hud that offers four styles in one. The best way to show it was of course to make a little video, in which I also show off releases from deviousMind, the Plastik and Anachron.

Fantasy Faire 2017 - The Rose

They call her the Rose. Never forget that all roses have thorns. This one might hide hers, and the sweet scent of her flowers will distract you, but you would do best to handle her with caution.

I’ve spent a fair bit of time at the Rose sim since the Fantasy Faire opened, and between this dress by the Muses and a brand-new mask from Illusions, I couldn’t help but to imagine a mysterious courtesan who might just make her home in this kind of place.

Into Another World

With the help of a few pieces from Genre—most notably the amazing Underworld Gate from Anachron—I am preparing myself to step into the Fairelands as the Fantasy Faire 2017 is about to begin. The blogger preview starts today and then the Fairelands opens to everyone tomorrow. I have a few little previews to share with you today and there will be plenty more over the 10 days that the Faire is open.

Victorian Belle

I really like the field of tulips from Little Branch for the Victoriana round of Genre, so today I changed around the season on one of my sky landscapes and planted some tulips around the ballet academy build from Nomad. I think it turned out to be a rather charming backdrop for the gown from Anachron, also from Genre.

Victoriana

A new round of Genre is opening today at noon SL time. The theme for this round is Victoriana and in my first post as a Genre blogger I hope to give you a little taste of what you can expect. As you may remember, Genre changed its format last round, moving to a permanent build (rather than a new one for each round) and doing away with the L$100 max price. A discount is still offered, but this gives designers more flexibility in what they can make for the event.

Pirate Girl

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.

Defender

I had picked up two sets of sword poses from Genre’s Viking round when it opened, but it wasn’t until the latest release from Noble Creations—Warrior Girl—landed in my inventory that I came up with how to use them. The result includes a good dose of fantasy clich├ęs, from the horned helmet to the scant clothing. But no chainmail bikini, not this time.

Treasure Chest Unboxing February 2017

As with my previous post, this one was delayed due to our website issues. The actual unboxing video and the accompanying photo were posted yesterday, so this is mostly to add the credits for my initial outfit since I go over the various items from the Treasure Chest itself in the video.

Sweet and Tasty

With our website woes sorted out (upgrading never goes as planned) I can catch up on two posts that were supposed to be done yesterday but which turned into just Flickr posts for the time being. The first features new lingerie from alaskametro together with a very sweet gacha from the Plastik.

Enchanted Woods

Since I spent the weekend at a couple of dog show’s in Norway I was only able to visit Enchantment yesterday to peruse what Cinderella had inspired this round’s designers to create. It turned out to be quite a nice collection, capturing different facets of the fairy tale. There were, as one would expect, quite a few stunning ballgowns, but what also caught my eye was this shorter dress by the Muses. It seemed like the sort of thing one might wear when wandering about an enchanted wood…
