This will be short and sweet because I’ve been knocked out by a cold/flu/whatever and my brain is rather mushy. But We Love Role-Play is still on for a few more days (until the 28th) and there you can pick up the elegant Gravitas service chair by Dictatorshop. It includes both femdom and maledom animations, but since my partner has been struck by the same illness we were not quite in the mood to explore it any further. ;) I do love the look of this chair, however, and could see placing it in both modern and role-play settings.
My barely-there outfit is by Petrichor & Ersch for the November round of Kinky. The asymmetry really makes this design pop.
Finally, we have the hair which is a brand new Wasabi release for the Fifty called Kitten. Sleek and versatile, it can be worn four different ways and with or without hair clips.
For the independent adventuress, the Flor outfit and matching boots from Sweet Kajira are a perfect choice. Perhaps she is a pirate or a mercenary, but either way she is the kind of woman who can visit an inn on her own, certain that she can handle any trouble that comes her way. The textures on this set are really nice and the fatpack HUD offers a wide range of mixing and matching options. You’ll find it at We Love Role-Play for a few days more!
The gorgeous curly hairstyle is by Truth and is aptly named Bounce, of which it has plenty. My skin here is Otrera by Nar Mattaru in Olive, one of my favourites, and the shape an in-progress work for Zora and Legacy.
The build is one of the Medici townhouses by Del-ka Aedilis and I liked the idea of trying something different with this one, so I set it up as an inn. It has a large room on the first floor and a large room on the second floor, so that could serve as a common room and a sleeping loft.
Its early to hope for snow, but I am starting to long a bit for it, especially the way it brightens the dark november nights. Fortunately, I can get a little taste of it in Second Life. For this round of We Love Role-Play, Konoha has a beautiful orangerie available and it comes in two versions; with and without snow. I took the snowy version and set it amidst a snowy landscape. For a dash of colour, I choose the Matilda dress from Rakshasa and used the HUD to select a black and red combination. This versatile dress (with its matching hat) can be worn with long or short sleeves and with a long or short skirt. It certainly has a witchy feel to it with the hat, but less so without it, making it versatile in that regards as well. The white heels that you see peeking out beneath the hem in the first shot are from Sass, a nice low-heeled shoe option.
Finally we have the hair from the Truth Collective (Truth & Wasabi), a very charming double pony-tail called Pudding which is out at Access. It is very sleek on top so worked perfectly with the hat.
When preparing dinner, it is important to use the right mushrooms. Of course, what the right mushroom is depends on the goal of the dinner. With Static’s Mushroomery prop for We Love Role-Play you can identify a few suitable candidates if your meal involves murder. The book (which comes with a HUD for changing the leather and metal textures) is meant to held in either the right or left hand as seen in the first photos, but I also wanted to do a close-up and for that I placed it on the mantlepiece of the fireplace from Cabal. The pot heating up over the fire, the kite shield resting against the wall and the drinking horn converted into a candle are also from Cabal and all for We Love Role-Play.
The same is true for the beautiful Frigg gown from Enfant Terrible. Inspired by dress of Norse women during the Viking age, Frigg is the gown of a woman of some means, with finespun wool and linen adorned by the typical brooches (here joined by beaded strands) and a metal girdle. In the fatpack, the HUD allows mixing and matching between different dress and overdress colors and also includes options for the metals and beads. Not worn here is a fur shoulder piece and a crown of oak wreathes that are also part of the Frigg outfit.
Also new but for Anthem is Wren, a versatile double pigtail hairstyle from Wasabi. It includes style options for the bangs and texture options for the hairties.
Sunset over a beautiful temple and an ancient olive grove by the sea, and a priestess is bringing a tray of offerings. What you see in these images are just a few of things that will be available when the November round of We Love Role-Play opens tomorrow, offering new releases at discounts of between 15% and 30%.
Out now at FaMESHed is the Waterland House from Dutchie, a 17th century wooden residence with an L-shaped and open floor plan. Based on the kind of architecture that the Dutch village of Broek in Waterland is known for, this house was originally a combined store and residence. This remodelled version has taken out the wall between the front and the back of the house, leaving it open and airy. Even so, there is a private room suitable as a bedroom or office on the ground floor. Additionally, there is an open attic, accessed via a beautiful iron spiral staircase (walkable and also with click to teleport), with plenty of space. A wooden house like this can be used in a variety of scenarios and suits many different furnishing styles. It has a footprint of about 17 by 17 meters and a land impact of 103 prims.
You still have a few days until October 30th and the last day of the current Redeux round, which features (among other things) the Villa Equites from Del-ka Aedilis. A part of the Rome Series, it is an elegant villa with a garden, such as might be owned by one of the Equites. They were a wealthy social class but not as high ranking as the patricians. The villa features a first floor with the atrium and garden and additional rooms, as well as a partial upper floor overlooking the garden and with an attached balcony. There, I placed the banquet triclinium from the Civitas series and did a shot from a set of dancing poses by Nantra and one on the couch.
The outfit is not very Roman! But it is quite sexy, this collaboration between Petrichor & Ersch. There’s a bit of a kimono-feel to it with the wrap and the bow, but of course made a lot more revealing. As usual, you get tons of options for colors and you can choose to hide certain parts. You also have three different skirt options.
You still have a few more days to visit the Dog & Pony Show before it closes on the 23rd of October, so make sure you don’t miss out! There are still events left as well, including the eagerly awaited Live Auction on the 21st with many OOAK coats up for grabs.
This may be my final post for this year’s event and for that I am heading off into the mountains to show some Campion Mustangs in their natural habitat. Campion Mustangs, you say? Well, within the Teegle community on Second Life there are a few roleplaying games centered around fictional breeds. Some are more fantastical and are found in fictional worlds, others are intended as fictional breeds found in our own world. They use Teeglepets as the base but with the help of deformers and mesh add-ons they achieve unique looks.
We Love Role-Play meets the Dog & Pony Showin today’s post, featuring poses from Aelithe, a lovely new dress from Rakshasa (with bonus vegetable basket from Neon Sheep), a kitchen work table from RiG! and some hopeful dogs from Teegle: the original size of the mutt (now a limited edition), the resized mutt and of course the adorable puppy. Also new is the hairstyle, a Truth Collective release from Truth and Wasabi. I love those two thick braids! It also comes with an optional hat decorated with an Ankh, quite suitable for Halloween, but here I am wearing the headscarf included with the dress.
Our own RL dogs, a pair of boxers, would definitely agree with this bunch that the kitchen is the best place in the house, even if the bed (not their bed) comes a close second. I think that their ideal would be a bed IN the kitchen. ;)
It would not be the Dog & Pony Show without new releases from Teegle and this year they’ve got a massive lineup of news: two new horses, three new dogs, resized versions of the first three dogs released and also dog collars and leashes. And that is not even all, there’s more to come in a few days!
The new horses are a “Jewel” the Percheron and “Spice” the draft foal. The Percheron is a draft breed from France which descends from the medieval warhorses. It is not generally as tall as Belgians or Clydesdales, but it is quite solidly built while still being agile. In France, only black and grey Percherons can be registered, but the US registry allows additional colours. The default coat for the Teegle Percheron is a beautiful grey, but I have some new coats from the Dog & Pony Show to share with you as well so I applied the lovely dappled Poe coat from Royal’s Customs. As you can see, it includes some very nice materials as well. Royal’s Customs has several more gorgeous coats at the event.
The new dark and delicious Dryad skin from Fallen Gods for We Love Role-Play is called “Blackwood” and it seemed to me that such a dryad would make her (or his, the skin is available for both genders) home in the deepest parts of the woods. The Fall Court Circlet from Kreep, with its pale mushrooms, felt like just the right crown for the queen among such dryads. And her throne? Those twisted brambles from Lore again, here placed in a dark forest tarn. I also went for some shopping at the Halloween Shop & Hop and came away with an appropriate set of swamp trees from Fundati’s Ultimate Swamp Setto add to the feeling of a ancient forest.
The demonic steed, eyes glowing, raced along the narrow gorge, past thick, thorny brambles that seemed to reach for both it and the carriage that it pulled. Suddenly, it reared up, neighing shrilly, as it found the path blocked by a massive tangle of brambles.
Seydr and En Pointe welcome you aboard a collaboration truly fit for the spookiest of all months. The Midnight Ride carriage, available at the Engine Room, and the matching Midnight Rider harness from the Dog & Pony Show, will let you hitch up a Teeglepet and go for a wild ride. Add in the Theia Eye System from Seydr to make your steed look demonic enough for the role and pick up a suitable coat, such as the Draconic from Nocturne Skies, and your wild ride will be ready.
The October round of We Love Role-Play is just a day away, so I slipped into something naughty to do a little bit of teasing. Though the outfit is not for WLRP, instead it is Petrichor & Ersch for Kinky. The Kevrys bodysuit is more open than closed and accentuated by delicate chains and matched by a collar. Very sexy in the way it frames the body and of course the HUDs give you tons of texture options. My hair is by Truth and Wasabi for Anthem, which opens today. Rain is a delicious long style with four style options plus optional bangs. Perfect for the sultry look I wanted and which is enhanced by the eyeshadow from Poema which is one of the things coming to WLRP, together with a matching lipstick set, each offering 9 colours. The other piece from WLRP is the spectacular tattoo by Nefekalum, which of course uses materials for that extra effect and includes 20 colour combinations in two opacities each.
The poses (or rather, animations) are from the bed by Lore, which is actually from the last round of WLRP. An unwelcome visitor in the form of a nasty cold kept me from blogging that before the round ended, but I really wanted to show off the bed with its matching table and lamp and it gave an interesting vibe to this scene.
The Dog & Pony Show is now open, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, what are you waiting for? There are some great new pets from Teegle—both horses and dogs—which I will take a look at soon, but in this post I am continuing with a mix of landscaping and some new coats. I am thinking I might setup a permanent horse farm on one of my sky landscapes. It is a bit tricky doing trails when you’re working with just mesh landscapes, but we’ll see where it lands.
The best event in Second Life for ponies and now also pooches is back! The big Teegle event of the year, now renamed to the Dog & Pony Show, opens on September 29th and it is jam-packed with coats, accessories and everything else your four-hoofed/pawed friends might need. Or yourself, in case you prefer being the horse to riding the horse! The event will run until October 23 and in addition to tons of cool new releases, it will feature a packed schedule of events and demonstrations. As well as, of course, the immensely popular One Of A Kind auctions.
I am thrilled to have the chance to blog this event and for my initial post, the teaser before the event opens, I went straight for the brand new riding arena from The Domineaux Effect in which I setup a small jumping course using the English Show Jump set from Simply Shelby. As my mount for the day I selected the Tennessee Walker and prettied him up with a new coat from the Cozy Den and added Polo Wraps from Cinnamon. The tack set is Cheval D’or’s Pinnacle Saddle Seat, a previous release.
