I have a love/hate relationship with gachas. It can definitely be a exciting to play, but it can also be really frustrating. Over time, the excitement factor has lessened, but sometimes a set crops up that brings it back. For example, Lux Aeterna’s “Feast for a King” at the Arcade. Lux Aeterna makes beautiful things that are very much in my wheelhouse when it comes to style and sources of inspiration and the two rares in this set created an immediate “must have” feeling. Fortunately for my virtual bank account, the beautiful skybox landed in my inventory almost right away.
Of course, the full dinner table set did not materialize as easily, so I settled for photoing a rather more scaled-back scene. However, I love how moody the hall comes out with just the single chair in front of the empty fireplace (though I did add some festive candelabras from Roawenwood).
As soon as I saw the amazing Serenade set from Toksik, I knew Ran had to have it. The coat is so opulent, with such fantastic details and great use of materials, and the Bakes-on-Mesh leggings look every bit as good as a pair of mesh leggings. Plus, they will work with so many things! The only part he didn’t get was the boots, instead he went with a pair from lassitude & ennui.
