The current round of Romp ends tomorrow, so I wanted to squeeze in a look at two things from the event—a furniture set from Roawenwood and a pair of stockings from Luxuria. The furniture has poses for two and three avatars at once as well, but I didn’t have any extra bodies handy for these photos. The idea is that it is a “kennel” bed set (for girls, not dogs, even if my dogs would have liked the lower bed!) with solo animations that include various lays, a set of tasks (knitting, sewing, embroidering) and a set of beauty routine animations. The work animations auto-rez and attach props, but the beauty ones don’t, which I am not sure whether that is intentional or a glitch. There is also a “sisters” menu for two avatars, with hairbrushing and gossping, an adult menu for two female avatars, and a threesome menu (two females, one male) with cuddles and sex. The style of the set is pretty versatile, here I have it in a fairly rustic setting but I could see this kind of wood finish in a more modern room too.
Luxuria’s Heaven Thigh Highs (the writing on the back reads “this way to heaven”), which includes both appliers and system layers, comes in eight colours for easy matching with lingerie—or with nothing at all. ;)
Redeux is now open for the October round, running from the 14th to the 21st. There are plenty of discounted items on offer, including a L$50 offer from each merchant, and you will find everything from fashion to home & garden items. I decided to begin with a feature of the latter, showing some medieval buildings from Harshlands and some autumn decor by Artisan Fantasy.
I am continuing the theme of the previous post with more oldies but goodies skins through Bakes on Mesh and a ton of October-appropriate accessories and decor. This time, I am hanging out in my little witch’s shack from Jian which I have decorated with paper bats from Paper Moon and a furniture set from Roawenwood. The outfit is another Voluptas Virtualis release which worked great for showing off the fantastic Zodiac tattoos from Fallen Gods. I’ve also accessories with a jewelery set from the Plastik and a hair from Wasabi.
I could not think of where to photo the lovely Midsummer outfit from deviousMind. It deserved some place magical and fanciful and I did not have the energy to put something like that together right now. And then Searlait Nitschke announced that she was done with her rebuild of the Roawenwood sim. It sounded fantastic from her description and once I got there, it did not disappoint. It is like a permanent Fantasy Faire sim, with plenty of beautiful spots to discover, and I found just what I needed to photo the elaborate Midsummer gacha where swarms of butterflies cover up the essentials and carry ribbons of fabric and an elaborate bustle that further add to the outfit. It is available at Whimsical which is open until the 12th of September.
The latest release from Dutchie is a wooden stage, made to fit in a corner, with a vintage-style rig with lights. The stage and the lights are separate pieces, so you can adjust how high above the lights sit or even use the stage or the lights on their own. There are several colour presets for the lights via a menu and it is also possible to set each light to a separate preset or even to go in and make manual edits. That opens up a lot of options for how the lights look as long as you are comfortable with a bit of editing. Instructions are included in the information notecard.
You never know what you will find when you step inside of a fairy ring. It might be best to bring a friendly imp along—but keep in mind that imp’s love mischief!
The fairy ring is by Roawenwood and both the hair and the dress are new releases for the July round of We Love Role-Play, from the Dreaming Thicket and Velvet Whip & Faida. The imp is an earlier gacha release by lassitude & ennui.
Today is the last chance for you to check out the great sales and bargains at the June round of Redeux. Technically, it closed on the 21st, but I believe it stays around for most of the 22nd as well. So this is just a quick post to give you the chance to visit before it is too late. The fabric wrap by Roawenwood, the pose by Serendipity and the fireplace from Myth are all items available at Redeux. The hair is one of two styles available from Wasabi’s gacha at the June round of the Arcade.
The timing of Enchantment’s “Iron Throne” round has been quite excellent for my creativity, as the end of Game of Thrones has had me thinking even more than usual about A Song of Ice and Fire and the sort of moods and themes the series (the books, not the TV show that claims to adapt them) represents for me. Using Roawenwood’s set of weirwood trees, I made a little godswood within my pine forest, and I really love how it turned out.
All ideas I had about catching up on my blogging prior to the start of Game of Thrones went out the window sometime last week when the interviews started to pile up. It also did not help that we brought home a puppy last Tuesday! However, Fantasy Faire is just around the corner, so I will just have to buckle down and get some pretty photos done. And while the Ice and Fire event is now over, you will probably be seeing a few more posts inspired by Westeros from me. Like this one, which does use some releases made for Ice and Fire as well as a new gown from Adam n Eve for We Love Role-Play.
I am still playing with my new skins from Skin Fair; this time I am using Rachel from Adam n Eve on LeLutka Simone and I am really fond of this combination. Simone, of course, is the first bento head from LeLutka, but I still find that she (and Cate) are my favourites. That said, I tried their new release for Skin Fair as well and Korina is a really nice head. I may just have to splurge for it, though I have a couple of other expensive items on my shopping list that come first (animesh horses, yay!).
I’ve struggled a bit with a good way of showcasing this really very well-made and saucy outfit from Voluptas Virtualis, but yesterday I finally remembered that I had this principal’s office setup from Roawenwood, which includes some great single animations for photos as well as a whole heap of naughty couple animations. It is also a very good set for doing a more sfw school-themed photo as long as you use other poses. ;)
I’m finding myself rather spoilt for choice when it comes to blogging right now. Almost a little overwhelmed, even. I try not to pack too many things into any one post, but I couldn’t resist going all out on the accessories for this image since the pieces from the Plastik and Voluptas Virtualis fit so well together with them both using the heart motif and being rather naughty at the same time. The title of the post comes from the lounger, however, a new piece by Roawenwood. And that is not all of it, so dive in to see the rest.
There is a new round of Enchantment and this time it takes its inspiration from Lord of the Rings and the designers offer everything from orc-inspired skins to robes fit for an elven king. I am showing you a beautifully textured dress from Senzafine and a set of chairs from Roawenwood with clear elven inspiration in the elegant lines. Additionally, I am wearing another piece from the current round of Redeux (remember, that one is only open for a week!), an intricate necklace from On a Lark. Finally, the hair is Cayden from Wasabi, released as a male style but as you can see it works fine for a female avatar as well provided that you don’t have too large a chest (there’s only two size options for the chest).
Faida and Velvet Whip has another collaboration from their “Oops!” line out at We Love Role-Play. This is a line of scripted clothing for roleplay, which allows parts of the outfit to be removed when it is clicked by the wearer or someone else who is allowed to control the outfit. When someone else does it, the action can be accompanied by roleplaying emotes. I’ll show a couple of the options in this post, so it will be getting progressively more nsfw. The gorgeous hair I am wearing is the latest group gift for Truth’s VIP group; it has so many different ways of wearing it that you will be seeing a lot of it.
I am not a coffee drinker (which is pretty unusual in Sweden!) and while I do like tea, my favourite hot drink indulgence is without a doubt hot chocolate. Best drunk in winter, of course, especially outdoors at a Christmas market where you often get it flavoured with cinnamon. Delicious! So, for my second Redeux post for this round, I setup the hot cocoa stand from Roawenwood as a backdrop.
