After a very busy first weekend of December, I am trying to slow the pace down a bit and enjoy the build-up to the holidays by slowly getting into a Christmas mood. This dress by Faida and Velvet Whip was not intended as a Christmas dress, but I would definitely like to have it for a Christmas party, especially in this frosty silver colour. The dress is will be available at We Love Role-Play when it opens in a few hours, together with a L$50 Christmas special. The earrings I am wearing are in fact the L$50 item from another vendor, Bliensen + MaiTai. Make sure to check all the stalls so that you don’t miss any of them!
My hair is a new style by Wasabi, available with and without bangs and featuring a pretty texture-change ribbon. It is out at Tannenbaum and so is the candle from the Plastik, which includes holdable versions for both your left and right hand as well as a rezzable version. A HUD provides plenty of texture options.
Sometimes, even virtual floors need a good scrubbing. Of course, when your scrub bucket is made by Dutchie, you may end up being distracted from your work and things are very likely to get dirty rather than clean! Though there are two actual scrubbing animations and if you’d like to keep your roleplay safe for work, there’s a PG version. This, however, is the adult version, which has 30 couple animations and 2 sequences.
It is almost time for the October round of La vie en pose (it opens on the 10th and runs until the 25th) and it will be offering you plenty of fall-themed poses, props and backdrops. I went for another occult-themed setup myself using poses from WetCat, a backdrop from Cubic Cherry and decor from Dark Secrets. But it all started with the fabulous Bellatrix outfit from Velvet Whip and Faida, which I accessorized with rings from lassitude & ennui and a hair from Wasabi. I think the end result has something of a “sexy superhero witch” vibe.
I definitely have a weakness for the Oops! line from Faida and Velvet Whip, with clothing that transforms from perfectly elegant and innocent to more than a little naughty with a simple click. The pieces are all scripted for roleplay interactions as well, with the option to allow another avatar to do the stripping. There are also optional emotes to go with the various stages of clothing removal.
Their latest release, available at We Love Role-Play, struck me as somewhat Roman-inspired, so I added a hairstyle in a similar vein by Bliensen + MaiTai (also from WLRP) and headed to our bath house by Tia. I am also wearing a collar and a set of cuffs from the Plastik for the Fetish Fair.
You never know what you will find when you step inside of a fairy ring. It might be best to bring a friendly imp along—but keep in mind that imp’s love mischief!
The fairy ring is by Roawenwood and both the hair and the dress are new releases for the July round of We Love Role-Play, from the Dreaming Thicket and Velvet Whip & Faida. The imp is an earlier gacha release by lassitude & ennui.
A new pose event is just around the corner. La vie en pose opens July 10th (and runs until July 25th) and will feature poses, props, animations, backdrops and phototools. This should be a great event for photograpers and storytellers! I´ll be featuring a selection of the available exclusives from the fair, starting with this pose prop from Velvet Whip - Genie in a jar. To outfit my genie, I picked the recent Lootbox release from deviousMind, Nite & Daey.
After spending last week in Spain at an academic conference about Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire, we got back home just in time to watch and review the final episode of GoT. Given that this meant getting up at 3 am and not being back into bed until about 5.30 am, Monday was kind of a blur. But today I felt some energy returning and was able to setup the shot that I had initially planned to do before going to Spain. It includes pieces from the Iron Throne-round of Enchantment as well as from the current round of We Love Role-Play.
The Ice and Fire event opens on April 3rd and of course I will be blogging it. Even though we’re already starting to get crazy busy now that the start of season 8 is less than two weeks away, I wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to have fun drawing some inspiration from Westeros for a few posts. After all, I have bought all these castles and medieval buildings for a reason!
First up is a beautiful gown that is a collaboration between Faida and Velvet Whip together with one of a set of six pendants by Adam n Eve. For the background, I decided to setup my Iron Throne from Death Row Designs in the Dungan Castle by Fanatik. Not quite the Red Keep, but pretty good! I could have used some dragon skulls for the walls, though.
When Fanatik came out with their river set, I wished for a waterfall in my post about it. I don’t know if that had anything to do with it, but a week or so ago they released a matching waterfall. Naturally, I had to pick it up, though it took me a while to get around to featuring it in a post. But when I wanted to do a dreamy forest scene to feature Faida’s and Velvet Whip’s collaboration for Enchantment, the waterfall turned out to be the perfect backdrop when set at the edge of the forest from Studio Skye. I am also teasing another of the new Adam n Eve skins that will be out at Skin Fair 2019 and the gorgeous hair is by Wasabi.
Faida and Velvet Whip has another collaboration from their “Oops!” line out at We Love Role-Play. This is a line of scripted clothing for roleplay, which allows parts of the outfit to be removed when it is clicked by the wearer or someone else who is allowed to control the outfit. When someone else does it, the action can be accompanied by roleplaying emotes. I’ll show a couple of the options in this post, so it will be getting progressively more nsfw. The gorgeous hair I am wearing is the latest group gift for Truth’s VIP group; it has so many different ways of wearing it that you will be seeing a lot of it.
Faida and Velvet Whip have started collaborating on a line of interactive clothing they call “Oops!”. The latest release is out at We Love Role-Play and Titania was kind enough to send it to me. I had been eyeing the earlier releases but since they are fitted for Maitreya, I was a little uncertain how they would work on Slink Physique. It turns out it works pretty well, though I did have to switch the alpha cuts around between the different stages of the dress so doing a video as I had first intended wasn’t ideal. In the more undressed versions, I also had to make some small edits to the images where the alpha cuts didn’t line up right, so if you want to use the outfits for actual roleplay, I do definitely recommend wearing them on the Maitreya body. But since most people aren’t as stubborn as me about sticking to just Slink, that shouldn’t be a problem. ;)
The Victoriana round of Genre is now open and its time for me to showcase a couple of more items that you will find there. One is from a staple here at the blog, a lovely gown from Senzafine, and the other is a piece of decor from Velvet Whip, a brand I have featured on a few occasions in the past but not with any regularity. I’ve also got another Skin Fair release to show as well as a new item from the Plastik.
After a brief absence, the Muses are back with four new gowns and it wasn’t easy for me to decide which one to pick up. But I managed to make up my mind and the gown I did pick went beautifully with Aisling’s release for the upcoming round of Enchantment which opens later today. Also covered in this post are Fantasy Gacha Carnival pieces from Velvet Whip and SWaGGa as well as a new hair from Magika.
The 5th Midwinter Fair is almost upon us, opening at noon today. The fair will be offering new releases, sales, gachas and a blogger expo. After a day in town at Christmas markets, I am kicking off my coverage of the fair with a warm and elegant gown from Velvet Whip, here paired with a hair from Oblivion for Hairology and a skin from PXL for the Winter Gacha Festival.
