Aisling launched their new brand Voluptas Virtualis some months ago, but it is only just now that the brand has received its own, separate store space as well as a subscriber group all of its own. From now on, the idea is that medieval/fantasy items go under the Aisling brand and more modern items, with a sexy and elegant feel, go under Voluptas Virtualis. The bodysuit I am showing today is one such item.
A few weeks ago I picked up the Curvaceous pose set from oOo Studio and it turned out to be just what I needed for this post about Aisling’s second ROMP release, the Zina lingerie. As a backdrop I am using the Grande Royale Bed from Roawenwood which really lives up to its name by being quite large and opulent.
I am continuing my quest to recreate various of my shapes using LeLutka’s Simone, with varying success. I am pretty pleased with this attempt, especially with the Heidi applier from PXL, which I’ve had around to blog for a good while but not been able to until now as I didn’t have a LeLutka head earlier. That is certainly one aspect I am looking forward to know that I have a bento head, namely being able to do some skin shopping and skin blogging again as there has been a bit of a shortage of system head skins of late.
The 6th Midwinter Fair has opened its doors, welcoming visitors to a sample a mix of new releases, gachas and best-selling items from 50 creators. The line-up mixes well-known names such as Junbug, Faida, Fallen Gods and Bliensen+MaiTai with brands that I am less familiar with and it is one of those that I am featuring in these shots, together with some new jewellery pieces from the Plastik.
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.
I paid a visit (aka, I spent way too long trying to teleport there) to the Arcade yesterday and tried my luck on a couple of machines. Fortunately for my virtual wallet, which took a hit with the recent sales, there weren’t too many machines that tempted me (and some of those that did tempt me did not offer Slink sizes). But Blueberry’s Show Time set caught my eye and the machine was kind enough to let me put together a full look after a few tries.
Yesterday was one of those days where I had to indulge in some virtual retail therapy to cheer myself up, so I picked up some landscaping sets from Studio Skye that I have been eyeing for a while and did some rebuilding of the winter corner of our sim. I am rather liking the result and decided to use it as the backdrop for a new video, where I look at another animated/customisable hair from Little Bones and some new makeups from the Plastik.
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.
I have been engaging in a lot of rereading lately and my latest choice may be inspiring a few more or less NSFW pictures as I decided that it was finally time (well overdue, really) to revisit Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series. I had (shame on me) almost forgotten how delicious that series can be. Now, if only someone in Second Life would make an appropriate set of eyes for an anguisette and perhaps a few marques as well…
But I digress (a little, anyway). However, certain elements of Kushiel’s Dart did inspire these shots. But when I started putting it together, it was also with a mind to show off the lovely stockings from Senzafine, so the clothing (or lack thereof) have a lot to do with that as well.
This past weekend I decided to take the plunge and start a site redesign. So far, its looking similar, but underneath it should be more responsive and work on more screen sizes. I also plan to rework the overall look, but first I need all the basics sorted out. Until then, things may get a little messy from time to time, with links not working and so on. So, that absorbed my time for the last few days, but today I managed to finally get another video done. This one features another animated hair from Little Bones as well as an animated corset from the Plastik.
The annual horror game from Pulse Games opened a couple of days ago and I thought it would be fun to make a video of part of the game play. There will be some spoilers but the video does not cover the whole game so there are still plenty of surprises left. And as usual there’s tons of prizes to pick up as you move through the various locations and it is definitely not easy to find all of them! The game starts at Sn@tch and spans across multiple sims. Just one tip if you head out there before watching my video—mind the bees!
For all those with a virtual sweet tooth, the Candy Fair is now running. I mixed up a few things from the fair with some pieces from Salem and the Epiphany for my sweet but naughty little witch. Trick or treat!
Last week was all about our dog, as we prepared for and went to a training camp. Now we’re back home and while we’re recovering from a rather intensive weekend I thought I’d squeeze in some photos. The first set features a dress by alaskametro (as well as an eyeshadow from the same brand) together with a new hair with attitude from Wasabi Pills.
The golden round of The Secret Affair has already provided me with material for several posts and I am not quite done yet. This time I’ve come to the releases by Noble Creations and Paper Moon, which I have paired with a new Omega applier lingerie from the Muses.
Bliensen + MaiTai has released a necklace and a matching pair of earrings at two different events; the Eulalia necklace at Lost and Found (soon available at the mainstore, the Flickr notes) and the Eulalia earrings at We Love Role-Play. It has been a while since I focused just on a set of accessories with close-ups like these, but these pieces really deserved to be highlighted. Gold and silver versions are included and the earrings come with four different stone options. The Flickr notes that the necklace is inspired by Etruscan jewellery and I think they would make superb accessories for any roleplay look. In this case, I paired them with the Gilded Net outfit from the Muses.
