It rained a bit here today, but I am still in Winter mood, waiting for more snow tomorrow. So, I am playing around with more snow scenes in Second Life as well, here using a covered viking hut from Del-ka Aedilis with the shimmer snow particles from Dysfunctionality. My outfit is by Sweet Kajira for the December round of We Love Role-Play (still available through January) and the head piece is by Miamai for Winter’s Hollow (open until the 20th of January). The poses are from Nantra’s Blame it on the Rain set, but that works just as well with snow of course.
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.
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?
When I was given the opportunity to show off the new Khara body from Inithium, that also proved an excellent reason for revisiting the Iron Bed from Dutchie (nsfw images in linked post) since both the body and the bed called for a video. In it, I demonstrate the animations in the “Friends” menu of the bed and give you a closer look at Khara, the Inithium hud and the contents of the Khara Starter Pack. You’ll find a couple of additional images as well as the credits below the video.
The Monk Outfit from Cosmos is one of several releases for male avatars at the current round of We Love Role-Play and while I don’t own any of the male bodies it is rigged for, the covering nature out of the outfit meant I could get away with using my Slink Physique Male body to show it off for you. This is a nicely meshed and textured outfit which is made very useful by the texture HUD that offers three different colours (brown, red and white/grey) and also options for different symbols on the chest (or none, as here). That means you can use it to portray monks of different varieties.
This particular monk is of the sneaky kind, out to explore a secret passage in an occult library. This is a release from Fantavatar & Moonstruck for Chronicles & Legends: “Creatures of the Night” and as you can see the middle section of the shelf set can be clicked so it slides sideways. For best effect, of course, you need a door or a passage behind the opening. Here I am using one of the lower levels of Fanatik’s Arkaig Castle.
I don’t apply for a lot of blogger positions any longer, things are busy enough as it is, but I did send in for Petrichor’s latest blogger search since I do like blogging intricate fantasy outfits and jewellery. So this is my first post, featuring the Zarys outfit. This is a release from a little while back that was created in collaboration with Ersch and consists of a dress, optional sleeves (one or both arms) and panties with leg chains as well as some spiky armor pieces (not shown). There are several different packs available with different texturing huds for the fabrics as well as the metals. The opacity of the dress can also be altered via the huds. Sizes included are eBody, Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Lara, Lara Petite and Mounds.
The hair is Wasabi’s New Year’s Edition of Mystique and the skin is LeLapeau’s Elsa with body skin by Velour. I am stepping out of Fanatik’s Stalker Castle and using a pose by Serendipity.
