I am having hot chocolate as I type this. Christmas-flavoured (aka gingerbread flavoured) hot chocolate from Monbana. No whipped cream though, since it is the middle of the week and I plan to be a (mostly) good girl until Christmas, when I will eat entirely too much food and candy. But I had to at least have some hot chocolate today because it is cold and dark outside and my avatar is looking so very cosy with her mug of hot chocolate (at least, I think I picked the chocolate) and her cosy sweater dress.
The lovely part of autumn is in the past now, with all the leaves torn down by wind and darkened to a rather unattractive brown by rain. Fortunately, it is easy to recall it in Second Life, where the autumn trees are always at their prettiest, with crisp leaves of red and gold.
As you may have noticed, I’ve started changing up the credits again, going back to the more traditional approach of having them at the end. I am still figuring out precisely how I want to do the linking (store or page, for example), so expect it to fluctuate a bit more. Some of the older entries may also end up displaying a bit weirdly as I work on tweaking some of the blog setup in preparation for a larger makeover. But, enough about that! Today, it seems I have been a naughty girl…
One of Roawenwood’s latest releases is the Einarr Stone Throne, available at a 25% discount at the current round of The Fantasy Collective. This called for Ran being not just behind the camera but also in the scene, since I could hardly be dancing seductively in front of an empty throne. He did not complain too much, however, especially not after seeing the set from Aisling that I was wearing.
The Fetish Fair ends on September 2nd, so you’re nearing your last chance to check out what’s on offer. Roawenwood has two new releases at the fair, both at a 50% discount, and I am taking a look at one of them in this post: the Enchained dance set.
Suddenly, it is ferociously hot here and of course I had picked today for a thorough house cleaning. Perhaps that is why I was inspired to make this photo of someone working in warm conditions! New releases by Roawenwood, Tableau Vivant and ieQED are featured in this “crafty” post.
Romp opened yesterday and is celebrating its anniversary with an opulent two-sim fair, full of naughty treats. I decided to make use of a prop from Roawenwood from a previous round of Romp to give Ran something to do while I dressed myself up in new releases from Luxuria and Aisling. The gorgeous hair I am wearing is actually the gift from Analog Dog at Hair Fair, which opened today.
Roawenwood made this lovely harp in three wood colours for Indie Teepee. I struggled a little at first in finding a setting that I liked for the harp, but then I remember this little island that I made in my latest reshaping of the sim and where I had placed the stone circle from HEXtraordinary. The setting then determined the rest of the items, a more modern look than I had at first envisioned but with a touch of whimsy about it.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist that! But you really don’t want to miss that [email protected] is having a sale, which of course means fatpacks at insane prices. I picked up the Martina lingerie used in this post (comes with and without the “modesty panels”) and decided to use a recent prop from Roawenwood to show it off. This post definitely gets NSFW!
Roawenwood (whose store has recently been remodelled and there is to be a photo contest on the sim) has a lovely summery swing with plenty of animations (single & couple) at the Fantasy Collective. I thought it deserved a bit of a floral theme for my accessories as well, so I went with some recent releases by Noble Creations and ieQED. I am also wearing a hair from Alice Project’s Summer Fun event, which offers one free hair per day in special colour packs and an extra bonus pack for those in her VIP group (which you really should join if you’re a hair addict since right now—today being the last day—the price is 50% of the usual joining price and you can then pick up the gifts you’ve missed).
Today is all about two gacha sets, one from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and one from the upcoming round of the Arcade. Both of them are of course extra nice with all the pieces present, but they are not gachas that depend on you collecting everything to have a usable set.
I still have several beautiful sims to feature from the Fantasy Faire, but these photos are taken on our sim instead, to allow me to feature a lovely piece of landscaping from Roawenwood. And, admittedly, to be able to show two lovely fantasy skins (I invited Ran along to do some of his own Fantasy Faire coverage in this post as well) without any clothing in the way!
A couple of days ago, I went through the Gacha Guardians event. This is a mainstore gacha event where you pick up a HUD, touch a runestone at a participating store and then click the HUD to get a teleport to a random store from the list. It takes a bit longer than just camming through the vendors at a single-location event, but I do think you give a bit more consideration to gachas that look potentially interesting (and if it comes from a store you don’t recognize, you might also take a moment to browse a bit before going on). Once you have filled up the HUD you can access a special location where you can redeem any keys you have earned by playing any given machine ten times for special Gifts of the Guardians which are exclusive to the event and retired afterwards.
Skin Fair opens on the 11th of March, so expect to see a lot of skin here in the upcoming posts. Which of course may not be that different from what the upcoming posts usually would have anyway… The first skin I am taking a closer look is the new line from alaskametro, a very nice hybrid skin that mixes photosourcing and handdrawing. I am also featuring releases from Roawenwood, Luxuria, The Plastik and EMO-tions.
Today, I’m taking a look at another gacha from Objets d’Amour, namely Roawenwood’s Sleek Bindings. In addition to that, I am showing three We Love Role-Play releases, from Aisling, Calico and Noble Creations.
