Winter Hunt

While Autumn has just arrived in RL, I decided to skip ahead a bit for this photo and placed my cosy new cave from E-mesh in our virtual “North”. Together with other Genre pieces from Paper Moon and Nantra as well as tattoos by Fallen Gods, I got myself ready for a snowy hunt.

Hard Edges

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.

Vanity

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.

Golden Light

The Secret Affair is now open and as already teased in my previous post, this round is all about gold. Aisling has a veritable cornucopia of different releases out and I also pulled out some favourites of mine from their previous releases to complete this look. Add to that some gorgeous curls from Wasabi Pills for the Crossroads and a stunning Grecian temple from Fallen Gods.

Gilded Promises

When it comes to fashion and appearance, Second Life offers the whole spectrum from realism to over-the-top fantasies of all kinds. I tend to play around somewhere towards the more fantastic end of the spectrum, though my preferred look is largely human. But I do enjoy fantastical outfits and accessories, not to mention hairstyles that would make Rapunzel jealous. Such as this impressive braid from Calico for Hairology. Also featured in this post are items from Aisling and The Muses.

Bed of Roses

A beautiful set of lingerie from Luxuria, soon to be released at The Liaison Collaborative which opens later today, draped in body jewellery by Aisling and with the scene accentuated by decorations and trinkets by the latter brand, in both cases from We Love Role-Play. Quite the change from the shots I did earlier today, but that is a big part of the charm of Second Life for me.

Gladiatrix

For this round of We Love Role-Play, lassitude & ennui has created what can only be described as a classic female sword & sorcery outfit. My first thought was to shoot these pictures at Kingdom of Sand, which has been my go-to place for desert environments for years…only to learn that it disappeared last year! Fortunately, I came across the Tajukistan Tahari sim and its gladiatorial arena was just what I needed. Still, Kingdom of Sand will be greatly missed as a photo location and I think I will need to make another effort to turn our own little desert corner into something more usable. Alas, my landscaping skills are limited. But, enough about that!

Ancient Accessories

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.

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.

Black Diamonds

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

Watercolours

Candied Violets is a new store from Sohma Dix behind Paper Moon and Hekate. It has a more modern, but still quite whimsical style, and I am showing one item from its first batch of releases. And speaking of the other two stores, they have just returned after a hiatus and are both offering reopening sales that you will want to check out.

Bound for Wickedness

There’s another new event lurking around the corner, Fetish Fair. It opens August 19th and I have a couple of previews in this post, from Aisling and PXL. Also, a pair of Wicked booties from lassitude & ennui for Enchantment, which is ongoing.

Eastern Circe

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.

Briony in Bondage

Roslin Petion of Luxuria is putting out a steady stream of sexy applier lingerie, with one of her latest offerings being for the Gacha Garden. I decided to pair it with a new release from Aisling and a new hair from Wasabi Pills, while also taking the opportunity to show off another tone of alaskametro’s/a> new skin, this time on the classic avatar head rather than a mesh head.

Vindicated

Running Second Life on a laptop and on mobile broadband when you’re used to a much larger screen and a much faster connection is not entirely enjoyable. However, with all the events starting up at the beginning of August, my inventory is full of pretty new things that I can’t wait to blog. Today, we have a sexy outfit from lassitude & ennui, a new skin from alaskametro and new hair from Wasabi Pills.
