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.
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.
With the current offer from The Shops to buy one of their bodies for 50% off if you’re wearing a qualifying body from another brand, I went ahead and picked up the Legacy Athletic male body to have more options for blogging male outfits. And then I jumped right into the Ubbe set from Rakshasa for We Love Role-Play. The set consists of tunic, pants and belt, all with a distinctly Viking-inspired look. As usual, the fatpack is a fantastic option for customisation, as the HUD allows so much mixing and matching of colours. The texturing is really top-notch on these pieces, both in terms of evoking a fabric and in the hues of the colours.
LR Weapons has two pieces at WLRP and for these photos I opted for the Andel Bow, making my character into a wandering hunter who comes across a strange altar in the woods. The altar, or rather the Stone of Knowledge, is one of Angelicus’s releases for WLRP. Fundati and Fanatik provided some of the other decor elements while my hair is by Magika who has been including male sizes for her releases of late.
From Del-ka Aedilis comes the Beekeepers set, which includes beehives and a beekeeper’s stump with animations, some generic and a couple for preparing honey. The beehives include optional sound and would be a lovely, atmospheric add-on to a garden. Here I set them up next to the edge of the forest and added a carpet of flowery grass around them courtesy of Fundati.
