It is We Love Role-Play time again. This time, my fantasy is more adult than elven, as the Versailles shoes from lassitude & ennui and the Portia jewellery from Sax Shepherd Designs inspired a lush boudoir look.
I have not blogged in quite a while for various RL reasons, none of them too fun unfortunately. However, I have had a bit of energy returning at least and doing something creative seemed like a good idea. So, I dug out a few things from the current (but soon to be over) round of We Love Role-Play; the Sultana dress from Apsara, the bracers from GSpot’s Dyonysos Bride and the earrings from Bliensen+MaiTai.
If you just can’t wait until noon tomorrow for Enchantment, then hurry up and join the Enchantment Update Group and you will get early access to the sim at midnight tonight. I’ll be finishing up my pre-opening coverage with a not entirely SFW Snow White. Don’t miss the closer look at ellabella’s gorgeous jewellery set in the next picture.
Enchantment opens in two days, on November 1st. Not only will you be able to buy exclusive releases inspired by Snow White, but you can also enjoy the scenery on a wintry island with a tall castle just next to the shopping area. Just be careful if you venture there, since you never know when the Raven Queen will be at home.
Events are still going strong in Second Life and personally I think that there is a strong appeal to “themed” shopping. I certainly enjoy it quite a bit myself, especially when the theme is something that appeals to me. The latest event to hit just the right mark for me is Enchantment. This event is inspired by fairy tales and it will run on a three-month cycle, which I think is a good idea now that there are so many monthly events. Additionally, all items sold at the event will be exclusives, available only at the event and then never again once that round has closed.
The first round will start on November 1st and it draws its inspiration from Snow White. I have had the opportunity to attend the blogger preview and I think you will find that there are quite a few things on offer that you won’t want to miss out on.
Its late October, so of course there’s a Horrorfest in Second Life. From there comes this sleek and sexy gown from Senzafine, which I’ve paired with the lovely Krysis jewellery from the Plastik. Its available at another event, the Body Modification Expo.
It is time for another round of Genre, this time with Steampunk in the focus. My immediate must-have item was this lovely Ada gown from Senzafine. It is available both with a black base and a brown base and I was sorely tempted by both. In the end, the Noir/Crimson version won out since it felt so lovely and gothic and just right for October. Once again, I am quite impressed by the lush and detailed texturing from Senzafine and I love the little red accents against the black.
The lovely Foxxe eye makeup is one of the Plastik’s releases for the Body Modification Expo. I think it really transforms the eye area of my Siobhan skin from Adam n Eve, creating a very different look.
A little less writing with this entry than usual, as my right arm is objecting a touch after doing a bit of sweeping in the yard. But I think the pictures of the elegant Morgana gown from the Plastik do a fine job of speaking for themselves.
Long mesh hair is finally getting a bit more curl and bounce and Calico Ingmann of Calico is one designer who is exploring these possibilities. I’ve paired her latest style, Penny, with the Bard top from the Muses for We Love Role-Play.
The new round of We Love Role-Play has opened and as usual there’s a wide and varied selection. I decided to get some more photo-mileage out of my newly purchased Enchanted Woods from Studio Skye, especially as the Nephilaine gown from Senzafine definitely called for a wintery setting. I am also wearing the Clara hair from Calico and Nahimana’s Autumn Necklace and Earrings from ellabella.
It took all of September, but now I have finally given into Autumn, and that set the tone for this post. Our sim remains very much a work in progress, but we’re hoping to find some more time for it soon. To gear myself up towards that goal, I’ve started shopping for various bits and pieces of landscaping. Like many others, I’ve now fallen in love with Studio Skye and I expect that quite a few of their pieces will grace our sim in the future. The same goes for LostAngel, whose inventive pose props always are a pleasure to use.
Bare Rose is a true Second Life treasure. The huge store is still filling up with more fun, unusual and inventive outfits on a regular basis, and now most of it is mesh. June Dion only offers a single size for her mesh items, but I’ve found that for the type of clothing I tend to gravitate to it often works out quite well. Such as with the Trobadour and Trobadour Lady outfits, which I knew I had to get for a couple photo with Ran as soon as I saw them.
We’re both wearing the Slink hands—the updated female hands and the brand new male hands—and skins from the Skin Shop. Ran is sporting a recent hair from Dura which I think is just so gorgeous and I am wearing Wasabi Pills.
I can’t resist doing another post about Genre’s September round, this one featuring the lovely Susanna dress from the Muses. Old times indeed, and it goes perfectly with the Akiko hair from Wasabi Pills. I am also wearing the updated mesh hands from Slink; if you already own the hands, make sure to get the update delivered using the terminals in the store, and if you don’t own the hands…well, get that problem taken care of right away. You need them, trust me. There are also male hands out now, so take your partner (or male alt) along as well.
The September round of Genre has opened and this month we are treated to an Old West theme. The Molly outfit from Senzafine immediately caught my eye and I decided that it would be lovely to pair it with the new Alisha lace booties from lassitude & ennui. These are made for the Slink medium feet and available at the new round of the Boutique.
“Of Fire and Ice…” is the second discounted—and updated!—Sourceress pose prop from chanimations for We Love Role-Play. This epic scene depicts a battle between two magic-users, each wielding one of the elements. The poses are suitably dramatic and the options for changing the look of the scene gives you many different possibilities.
While technically a set for two female avatars, the poses can largely pass for unisex, so we took this opportunity for Ran to show off his amazing new mesh armour from Silhouette Warfare. I, on the other hand, decided to go with rather less; I am wearing the lovely Naamah body jewellery from the Plastik, which definitely adorns you but doesn’t exactly cover you.
