Splendor

I promised more of a proper skin review for the Serene skin from Imabee and that is what you’ll be getting today, enhanced by a just a small part of the extensive jewellery collection released by aisling for the jewellery fair as well as an example of the massive set of manicures and pedicures recently released by alaskametro.

A Rare Jewel

A lovely gown from We Love Role-Play, a taste of the jewellery fair and a new skin form the basis for this post. In the coming days, I expect to revisit the jewellery fair and do a full review of the skin (and its Physique appliers), but for now I am staying dressed (for once!).

Buccaneer

This all started with lassitude & ennui’s gorgeous Buccaneer Boots for We Love Role-Play. Initially, I found myself at a loss for what to wear with them as my fantasy/history inventory consists of around 95% gowns, but then I remembered the Mirdain outfit by Senzafine. I accessorised with some gacha pieces from Sax Shepherd Designs and stayed in my new skin from Pink Fuel, topping off with a new hair from Truth.

Pink Fuelled

It has been quite some time since I did a proper skin review with a detailed look at a body. There simply haven’t been much in the way of new skins to look at if by new I mean not just a new face on a previously existing body. I did take a few looks at how various favourite skin lines of mine look on Slink’s Physique mesh body but that’s the closest I’ve gotten to full skin reviews in a while. Until now, that is, and even then it isn’t a brand-new body as such, but it is a (largely) new-to-me body. I have been eyeing Pink Fuel for a while, tempted by the many body options supplied, but none of the faces have been quite to my liking. That is, none of the “normal” faces; I really liked the Drow skin which I did feature in an earlier review, albeit without actually going over the body in detail. I’ll be sorting out that oversight in this review where I will be looking at the brand-new group gift from Pink Fuel (I joined the group—which costs L$250—after seeing the preview of this face on Plurk) together with the Slink Physique appliers.

WTT: Culprit Carousels

Not a blog today, but an attempt to sort out a little gacha problem. You see, last time Culprit had horse carousels at the Arcade, I ended up with three of the Eku-Ine Unicorn Rides. I would love to trade these against the Eku-ine Horse Ride from the same Arcade round or the new Immortals Unicorns Ride from the current round.

If you’re interested in either trade, just contact Freyja Nemeth in-world.

Caged

The Enchantment is about to fade away. At the end of this weekend, the Bluebeard round will close and the special prizes that you can get by buying a qualifying product and filling it with stamps from all the participating stores will be gone for good. You can see all the prizes on Enchantment’s website and I am featuring two of them in this post, from the Muses and Frogstar.

The cage prop is also a limited deal from Culprit for this round of the Neighbourhood.

Rustic Retreat

In the course of making a brave but probably futile attempt at organising my inventory, I dug out a few pieces I had failed to blog from Trompe Loeil and On a Lark and paired these with more current releases from, again, On a Lark and also ieQED for We Love Role-Play and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

Pirate Princess

Now that Slink has brought out an update to the Physique mesh body, I really needed to get some less dressed photos done. The Tortuga Princess gacha set from aisling for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival turned out to be just what I needed, especially in combination with the Garden Pavilion from Dysfunctional Designs for Collabor88.

Dystopian Carnivale

My roleplay looks are usually fantasy or history inspired, but Eudora 3D’s Carnivale outfit from We Love Role-Play‘s August round called for different surroundings. I thought there was something slightly dark and twisted about the outfit and the Forbidden City sim offered just the right surroundings. With the Carnivale outfit I am wearing a pair of sexy sandals from Bushu shoes.

Sun Queen

We’re back home again from the WorldCon in London (where we had a fabulous time) and even though I picked up a bit of a cold as a souvenir, I really wanted to start catching up on some of the events that I did not manage to cover enough before leaving. To start, I am revisiting the current round of We Love Role-Play as well as adding in a dash of La Metallique, a special round of L’accessoires.

Opulence

A late-night quickie so that I get one more post in before I disappear for a few days to go to the WorldCon in London. The current rounds of Enchantment and We Love Role-Play provided so many great outfits and accessories that I feel as if I am still only scratching the surface. I will simply have to keep scratching when I come home!

Eastern Promises

Aisling has created two stunning jewellery sets for the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The Sadhana is designed to have an Asian feel, which reminded me that I had a lovely tea house from Convair to blog. It seemed like a good setting for this seductive dancing girl, wearing a stunning array of jewellery and an eye-catching gown from deviousMind.

Spellbound

Today’s post is taking its title from the Spellbound pose & prop set from Picture This! I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to create something with it, so I started piecing together an enchantress from the great variety of releases at this month’s We Love Role-Play. I did “cheat” a bit with the hair; this style is actually a Hair Fair release from Calico, but it is similar to the style available at We Love Role-Play, but without hair framing the face, which allowed me to show off the jewellery better.

Greyscale

We Love Role-Play opens its August round today and it looks like a very strong collection. I’ve gone for an all-out fantasy look for my first post from this round, featuring new items from Lumae, Trap and Alchemy as well as a new hair from Wasabi Pills and horns from an earlier round by the Plastik. There are so many great accessories at the event this time that

A Perilous Princess

August 1st is almost here now and with it the new round of Enchantment, inspired by Bluebeard. In this version, the curious princess has decided that a bloody key is likely to lead to bloody murder, so she makes sure to be ready for her husband’s wrath.
