I was struggling a bit with how to do my next post for the Eastern Asia round of Genre, until I realised that the bridge from Yasyn was a lot larger than I had thought and would work quite well to span one of the deep canyons in this mesh landscape. With that in place, the rest quickly took shape and I went off and picked up one of the pose packs from Eternal Dreams.
I am a little bit behind, only now getting around to giving you a look at the Vintage Fair. But I am starting to be less and less eager to beat down the doors of an event on the first day—much nicer to be able to browse with a bit less lag. As the Vintage Fair stretches over two whole sim, you will need a fair bit of time to go through it even with less of a crowd around, so now is definitely a good time. In this post, I am taking a look at Adam n Eve, deviousMind, Roawenwood and Paper Moon, plus a hair from Wasabi Pills (not from the Vintage Fair).
deviousMind has a fun lingerie set out for ROMP, so I grabbed one of the commons from the gacha and setup by the pool in one of our NotSoBad houses. They’re getting on in years but still have their uses, though admittedly it is a bit frustrating that they are so large. I am glad that for the most part, builds in Second Life are a bit smaller these days. Sometimes epic is nice, but you don’t always want to look like you walked into a giant’s castle!
Elaborate sets with a lot of poses are hard to do justice with just static images and writing, so when I got the opportunity to blog the Devil’s Playground set from Roawenwood, a video seemed like the natural choice, albeit with some limitations. Rather than ending up in a situation where the video needed to be restricted due to content, I opted to not show the naughtier poses, though hopefully going through the menues still gives a good sense of what the set has to offer. Also featured in the video is a gacha set from deviousMind and a new male bento head from LightStar.
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.
We’ve had a few days of glorious weather, more summer than spring, and the woods have really come to life with budding trees and bird song everywhere. It put me in the mood for a forest scene, which also happened to suit one of several new releases from Noble Creations quite well. And once I had settled on the vine-covered bird cage, it seemed appropriate to continue on the theme of locks by using a new gacha from deviousMind.
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.
Chandra Meehan of deviousMind dropped her latest creation on me the other day and it inspired me to shed my clothes and take a dip in the Nile—well, in our little desert oasis, anyway, which I spruced up with some new cattails from Dysfunctional. There’s a few other pieces from We Love Role-Play in the mix as well, plus new makeups for anyBODY from alaskametro.
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.
Its time to queue up to get into the Gacha Garden once again and I’ve got a video for you showing the beautiful Seraphim wings from lassitude & ennui that is just one of many gachas available at this round. As a bonus you also get another look at the bento horse avatar from Teegle, now outfitted with a new skin and some new poses, and the sexy and awesome Valkyrie set from deviousMind.
A bit of magic might be exactly what I need to have some luck with gachas. I really wanted to put together a full set of the Wicca outfit from deviousMind and the machine was not prepared to co-operate at first (sometimes, nothing is so frustrating as a duplicate rare when all you wanted was a common of a certain colour). Fortunately, I did manage before I broke my budget entirely and with that hurdle out of the way, I was able to put together a magical little scene using items from Roawenwood and Paper Moon.
The second Deco(c)rate from MadPea Productions is out today and I have done another unboxing video to show off its contents. I also took the opportunity to show off the winter version of one of the Landscapes Unlimited mesh landscapes and matching off-sim surrounds that I bought on their recent sale and it made a great backdrop for the items in the Winter Nostaglia Deco(c)rate. In the video you also get to see new hair from Wasabi Pills and a new necklace from the Plastik.
This month Genre welcomes you to the Burlesque round. With pieces from Senzafine and deviousMind, I decided to stage the scene of a painting in progress. The Kiki masque from Senzafine comes in six colours and makes for a lovely accessory for both lingerie and gowns. And Lola la Riche from deviousMind is a very sexy jewelled harness for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass. The updo is from Calico for Hairology and is called Luna II
In the last two days new rounds of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and Collarbor88 have opened, threatening to do serious damage to my virtual wallet. The look I ended up putting together started with a jewellery set from Aisling and was completed by a dress from deviousMind and hair by Exile.
For my second visit to the Fantasy Faire, I went to the Fairelands Junction, built by Balderdash and sponsored by Roawenwood. While these two stores can be found on the sim, it is not a regular shopping sim, but instead it features portals to the other sims of the Fairelands. However, the beautiful build by Balderash certainly deserves to be shown off and if you like the gorgeous trees and flowers, these can be found in the Balderdash shop on the sim.
