We Love Role-Play remains open for two more days, until the 28 of September, so don’t miss the chance to check out all the great deals for this round. You will find new releases at 15% to 30% discounts, such as the lovely Cerridwen gown from Ruxy and the Butterfly Hennin by Grasshopper St. The gown is definitely more of a fantasy piece whereas the headgear is appropriately medieval. The ensemble gave me a reason to revisit my little Renaissance-inspired town, built with Del-ka Aedilis’s Medici Series of buildings. I also added a fountain from Hextraordinary to fill out the central square some.
Grasshopper St has a great release for male roleplayers at this round of We Love Role-Play. A medieval tunic with a matching cyclas, both with extensive particolour options through the HUD. There is also an embroidery overlay for the cyclas, just as for the earlier Eleanor gown and surcote. For this post, I did not use the embroidery, but I did play around with the colours, including the tinting option to get deeper tones. I’ll note that while I am wearing it over the Slink body, since that is the male body I own, it is not fitted for this body but does cover six other male bodies.
Another release at the event that is available for male as well as female avatars is Sigil’s the Bard’s Lute. This beautiful lute comes with a playable version for male or female avatars with holding and playing animation, a version worn over the shoulder and a version that can be worn on the back or rezzed as a prop. Time to woo the lady in your life with a romantic ballad, perhaps?
Whenever she sought solitude, she went into the labyrinth No one else was allowed to come there, it was for the queen and the queen alone.
We Love Role-Play closes on the 28th of April and you do not want to miss this beautiful and detailed medieval gown by Grasshopper St. The Eleanor Sideless Surcote is very good when it comes to historical accuracy and offers several options for how to wear it and how to colour it. Yes, you can do a parti-coloured gown and yes, you can add on heraldic embroideries as well. You are also able to wear just the kirtle with a belt over it instead of having the surcote as well. All depending on how fancy and formal you want to be. This is definitely one of the best medieval gowns I’ve seen in Second Life.
Also from Grasshopper St is the Inlaid Circlet, though this one you will find at the Fantasy Faire. The same goes for the labyrinth and the matching gazebo by Fantavatar & Moonstruck. I will try to give you a better look at the whole labyrinth as well, but I didn’t manage to do a garden setup that I was happy with for this post.
A lonely tower by the sea, a queen in self-imposed solitude. That is my second offering for We Love Role-Play, featuring the new releases from Grasshopper St and Les Encantades.
From Grasshopper St comes the Berengaria Crown and Medieval Veil. These are beautiful pieces, perfect for an accurate medieval look. The crown can be stripped down a bit by removing some of the ornaments and the HUD also includes several metal and jewel options. The veil comes in silk and cotton and rigged as well as unrigged.
The Revna gown is an intricately adorned dress that offers a lot of flexibility in how you combine the colours if you have the fullpack HUD. I had some minor quibbles with the fit of Blanca, the other Les Encantades gown I showed, but Revna is clearly a newer mesh and perfectly rigged to Maitreya Lara. It also includes fits for Belleza GenX, Kupra, Legacy and Reborn.
Lighting up the dark winter night with a lantern from 3rd Eye, I went to explore the SL Christmas Expo. Of course I was drawn to the Teegle lot where you can see several of their Teeglepets as well as the brand new Winter Hayride Wagon, a truly festive way to travel. There are also three new Teeglepet deformers from Mythril available at the Expo; Alter Real, Mustang and Tall Quarter Horse. Perhaps one of them will show up on the blog this weekend.
My dress is from Grasshopper St., a brand I have seen at a few previous rounds of We Love Role-Play, primarily with various kinds of period head wear. I have been tempted before and this gown made me take the plunge. It is very nicely made and features lovely textures, so I am really happy with the purchase. This red version has a very Christmassy feel I think. The fact that it is made for Slink as well is fantastic.
