Otherworldly

Forum Romanum

A little while ago, Fanatik released a wonderful collection of Roman buildings. With these, you can build your very own Roman town, with houses, warehouses, temples and a forum. There was also a package of Roman roads and a gorgeous villa Rustica, for the country lord living in style outside of the town. The textures for these sets are fantastic and they are easily resized if you find the defaults a bit too large. I am showing just a few shots here, to give a sense of the overall look of the pieces, but I am thinking of doing a video walk through of a build as well.

Another piece of Roman-inspired decor is the well bearing the SPQR inscription seen in the first two shots. It is from Del-ka Aedilis and also nicely resizable for when you’re rather short by SL standards. It looks great in the forum!

The hair is from F&M Oblivion, an elaborate updo that I don’t think was intended as Roman in style but sort of could pass for some of the braided arrangements we see on busts. My dress is from TRES for We Love Role-Play, a sleek fantasy gown with a nice ornate belt detail and a lovely back. For this release, TRES has added sizes for three new bodies, Belleza Gen X and Prima Femme Busty & Petite. I am actually wearing Prima Femme Petite for this post, together with a few of the very nice body deformers that add extra versatility to the shapes you can achieve. I will be digging into this body with a full review shortly! In the meantime, check it out at FaMESHed!

The days after Christmas are often some of the best, nice and relaxed with plenty of leftovers to eat so you don’t need to worry about cooking for a few days. Which leaves plenty of time for lazying about and doing whatever I want, like catching up on some blogging. I am, admittedly, a bit late in showing you the lovely Brooke lingerie & corset set from Voluptas Virtualis (the Seduction Fair has already closed, but hopefully it should be in the mainstore soon enough), but it doesn’t make it any less pretty. I also think it happened to be a very nice fit for the brand new Alessia Tent Loveseat from Trompe Loeil for Uber.
