Luxuria’s thigh high stockings for ROMP set the tone for this post; they have “worship me” written into the seam on the back. I paired them with the Charline bodysuit from Voluptas Virtualis, though I passed on the included garters as they did not line up with the stockings. And just like I said in my previous post, you’re getting to see another colour of the Somber hair from Stealthic, here a dark wine-red. The poses are from the Madam Lyla Parlor Couch by Roawenwood.
No, not for sale, but I did get dressed mostly in last Friday’s 50 Linden offerings, with items from the Plastik, Luxuria and Maxi Gossamer. I rarely have time to actually blog anything on Fridays, but I know the item from the Plastik (items, actually, as it is part of a larger set) at least will be out at a regular price once the 50 L offer has expired.
I have been busy setting up for Skin Fair the last few days—I will be participating with my shape brand, Kanon—but this is a combination I have wanted to shoot for a while. It features my last two picks from February’s Bound Box; a harness from Narcisse and a lounger from Violetility. I’ve also added stockings from Luxuria for the new round of Blush and another new hair from Wasabi—they’re on quite a roll with new releases right now. Finally, I am giving a sneak peak of the Anya skin from Adam n Eve which will be available at Skin Fair 2018 when it opens on the 9th.
Thanks to a giveaway by Violetility, I received a copy of the Bound Box for February. This is a subscription boxed aimed at the BDSM/Kinky community in Second Life. I considered doing an unboxing vlog, but given the nature of the box I decided to take a look at the contents first and determined that photos might be a better way to show it off. So, what I am going to do is pick my favourites from the box and show them across a few posts, intermixed with other items. For this first post, I selected the items from Dictatorshop and Essenz, which I paired with among other things new releases from Wasabi and Luxuria. I am also wearing glittery makeup from alaskametro’s Alchemy gacha at the Cosmetic Fair.
This is all rather inappropriate, but once I got the Alice boots from lassitude & ennui and the thigh high socks from Luxuria, I couldn’t help but to pair them with a couple of recent gachas—Anachron’s School Book Gacha and Roawenwood’s Kinky Back to School Gacha. My inventory is distinctly short on school uniforms, so went for the Vickie corset from Voluptas Virtualis, which I have shown before but which has so many colour and texture options that it certainly doesn’t hurt to show it again.
The first edition of the Bound subscription box came out today at midnight SL time (I believe you can still subscribe for 24 hours after the release and get it for L$2000) and I have a preview for you in the shape of the item from Voluptas Virtualis, a sexy harness and mask with lots of options via the included HUD. I paired it with a pair of stockings from Luxuria and a new hair from Wasabi Pills with a bit of an edge to it.
Following my video review of LightStar’s Athena mesh head, I am now taking a look at the second female Bento head from LightStar. This one is called Marian and has a softer look than Athena, who has a bolder face. Like Athena, Marian will soon be updated to 1.3, but what you are seeing here is version 1.2. The updates are taking a little longer than I might have indicated in my video and this is because the creator has decided to merge the different head layers into one object as well as merge the different HUDs into one. This will definitely offer a better user experience and deal with some of the concerns I voiced in the video. The updated heads will also include a matching body applier. For these photos, however, I am once again using PXL’s Heidi applier, this time in the SunKissed tone.
With so many events having started around the same time in January, it is easy for some to go overlooked next to others. For example, have you been to ROMP or spent all your time trying to get into the Epiphany? If gachas aren’t your fancy, but a bit of elegant kink is, then you don’t want to risk missing the current round of ROMP. After all, who doesn’t need some pole dancing poses and dead-sexy lingerie? Also featured in this post is a new release from the Plastik for Shiny Shabby.
A new year and a new Deco(c)rate. I couldn’t resist subscribing for January as well since I liked the two previous boxes and since the previews looked tempting. The theme, “Frozen Elegance”, also sounded like it would suit me well. As it happens, it most definitely did and I was very pleased with the contents of this Deco(c)rate. I ramble on about this at some length in the unboxing video, which is a little later than usual since I spent most of Sunday at a dog show. I will blame it on being tired that I forgot to take off the HUD for the FATElashes, apologies if that is distracting to have on the video. I seem to mentally edit out the presence of my HUDs.
A few days ago, Siddean Munro announced that a big update of all three Slink bodies has been completed. She also released video tutorials for the core feature of the update, namely the brand new HUD. I have been playing with the new HUD for a while and I’ve found it a huge improvement both in terms of layout and functionality. To add my own spin to the tutorials available, I decided to spend Christmas Day recording another video.
It took a lot of demoing, tweaking and thinking, but eventually I did decide to purchase LeLutka’s Bento-enabled mesh head, Simone. And even though there’s already a great video by Strawberry Singh looking at the head in detail, I wanted to make one myself, discussing some of my thoughts about mesh heads and shape-making for mesh heads. I talk a bit about what I like (and don’t like quite so much) about the head, go over some of the functions of the hud and test a few different shapes that I have been working on for this head.
I am a little tired after a day spent in town, for Christmas markets and that last bit of holiday shopping, so a couple of lazy, laidback shots seemed about right. I’ve put together a few items from the December Deco(c)rate and found myself some pretty things to wear, including another release from the Midwinter Fair.
Trompe Loeil offers both a cottage and a sofa for the December round of Collabor88 and it was the sofa that caught my eye, with its elegant curved lines and rich leather textures. It also seemed like an excellent way to show off some lingerie from Luxuria and to get Ran down to his boxers.
The Gacha Garden is full of a new crop of flowers, among them another beautiful set of applier lingerie from Luxuria. I am “cheating” a bit, however, because what I am wearing in these photos is actually the Seed of Inspiration, the special prize awarded every 20 pulls on a specific machine. That said, the regular version of the Grazia lingerie, as the set is called, is also a very pretty design. I just couldn’t resist the black and red combination that is unique to the Seed of Inspiration. The regular set comes in 9 common colours and 1 rare (black) and has the same cut of panty but a bra instead of a bustier.
The annual horror game from Pulse Games opened a couple of days ago and I thought it would be fun to make a video of part of the game play. There will be some spoilers but the video does not cover the whole game so there are still plenty of surprises left. And as usual there’s tons of prizes to pick up as you move through the various locations and it is definitely not easy to find all of them! The game starts at [email protected] and spans across multiple sims. Just one tip if you head out there before watching my video—mind the bees!
