Otherworldly

Cold Silence

The Silent Light build from 8f8 was one of my favourite items from the January Deco(c)rate that I unboxed just a few days ago, so of course I had to feature it on its own as well. It seemed to me it would make a nice backdrop for the other key items in this post, which are a current and an upcoming release from the Plastik.

His Pet

Yesterday, Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie plurked that she had a new release. She managed to make it sound very intriguing by saying that it made her blush, so I headed right over to her store to check it out. I didn’t have time to find it before she dropped a folder on me and said that she’d like to see what I’d write about it. The name of the item was the “Pet Pillow” and that alone had me hurrying back to my sim to check it out. As you might guess, this post will be heading into NSFW territory, even though the pillow is actually for solo use. But trust me, it is very useful even so and there are a total of 100 animations packed into it. As a result, this post has 10 images below the cut, so it might take a little time to load.

Treasure Chest Unboxing December 2016

Its time for another unboxing video, and this time around it is the Treasure Chest that I am diving into. As usual, I’ll provide a bit of extra information in this post as well as credits for what was worn during the video and for the shot included below. For the full list of designers in the chest and their items, the official website is the best resource.

The Winter Court

Bento is finally here for real now that it has been added to the official SL client (and a non-beta of Firestorm with Bento should be just around the corner) and Damien Fate of FATEplay has released a couple of things he had been sitting on for a while. One of them is the Lanne cloak and to show it off more fully I decided that a video was in order. The video also showcases the Elven Throne from HEXtraordinary, a new release for We Love Role-Play as well as items from Senzafine, paper moon and the the Plastik.

Chaotic

Truth recently started up a VIP group which will be getting an exclusive hair per month. I believe the joining fee is lower for the first month (I think it was L$265 at the moment) and with two hairs already available for members that is a fabulous deal. I hadn’t been too keen on the first member style, but then this Sugar hair was added to the group and since I am always in desperate need of good updos it was an easy decision. It also turned out to be an excellent hair for showing off a pair of new earrings and also this new fantasy skin, both from the Plastik.

Last Call for Fetish Fair

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.

Hidden Gems

I recently reread Judith Tarr’s Alamut (which I cannot recommend enough if you like history, fantasy and romance) and it put me in the mood to do some desert scenes. Fortunately, Aisling and Bliensen+MaiTai had just the right items out at We Love Role-Play.

Tea for Two

Noble Creations has a new furniture set out for the Fantasy Collective and it inspired me and Ran to bring out the outfits we bought at Genre’s Regency round, from the Muses and Last Ride, respectively.

My second visit to the Midwinter Fair takes a look at another lovely gown, this one from Figment, as well as at some mischievous squirrels from HEXtraordinary.

Noble Huntress

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 New Art

A new round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival has started and Aisling is participating with an elaborate, art nouveau-inspired jewellery set. I decided to stage the shot in one of our little patches of woodland, using the Titania’s Feast set from the Muses as part of the scene. I am also wearing a pair of brand new mesh eyes from PXL.

Hidden in the Desert

I have tried swearing off gachas more than once, but sometimes a release crops up that is just too tempting. Such was the case when I saw the previews for Ane‘s Moroccan Market gacha for The Chapter Four. Fortunately, I managed to get enough pieces to put together the build (alas, still missing the filler walls) without spending too much, giving me a nice backdrop for some photos.

Battlefield Babe

Its We Love Role-Play time again and I am a Bikini Battlefield Babe courtesy of Aisling’s and PXL’s new event releases, as well as a new hair from Truth.

Disrobed

This all started with this robe from Peqe for The Secret Affair, which appealed to my naughty side and definitely needed to be showcased. But it took me a while to come up with the rest of the pieces, which ended up being hair by Truth, accessories by Zaara and some lovely lights in the background by Jian.

Ode to Cora

I am still having fun with the various Slink updates in that “ooh, new shiny toy” way. Of the two mesh heads, I usually use Emma since I feel she looks a bit more classical and mature, but I have to say that the revised Becky looks very nice with several of the skins available at Adam n Eve. Here I am using Taliya and the resulting cute but sassy look seemed just right for the Cora top and skirt from elymode for the Whore Couture Fair 4 which opens tomorrow (March 1).
