For the independent adventuress, the Flor outfit and matching boots from Sweet Kajira are a perfect choice. Perhaps she is a pirate or a mercenary, but either way she is the kind of woman who can visit an inn on her own, certain that she can handle any trouble that comes her way. The textures on this set are really nice and the fatpack HUD offers a wide range of mixing and matching options. You’ll find it at We Love Role-Play for a few days more!
The gorgeous curly hairstyle is by Truth and is aptly named Bounce, of which it has plenty. My skin here is Otrera by Nar Mattaru in Olive, one of my favourites, and the shape an in-progress work for Zora and Legacy.
The build is one of the Medici townhouses by Del-ka Aedilis and I liked the idea of trying something different with this one, so I set it up as an inn. It has a large room on the first floor and a large room on the second floor, so that could serve as a common room and a sleeping loft.
Its early to hope for snow, but I am starting to long a bit for it, especially the way it brightens the dark november nights. Fortunately, I can get a little taste of it in Second Life. For this round of We Love Role-Play, Konoha has a beautiful orangerie available and it comes in two versions; with and without snow. I took the snowy version and set it amidst a snowy landscape. For a dash of colour, I choose the Matilda dress from Rakshasa and used the HUD to select a black and red combination. This versatile dress (with its matching hat) can be worn with long or short sleeves and with a long or short skirt. It certainly has a witchy feel to it with the hat, but less so without it, making it versatile in that regards as well. The white heels that you see peeking out beneath the hem in the first shot are from Sass, a nice low-heeled shoe option.
Finally we have the hair from the Truth Collective (Truth & Wasabi), a very charming double pony-tail called Pudding which is out at Access. It is very sleek on top so worked perfectly with the hat.
We Love Role-Play meets the Dog & Pony Showin today’s post, featuring poses from Aelithe, a lovely new dress from Rakshasa (with bonus vegetable basket from Neon Sheep), a kitchen work table from RiG! and some hopeful dogs from Teegle: the original size of the mutt (now a limited edition), the resized mutt and of course the adorable puppy. Also new is the hairstyle, a Truth Collective release from Truth and Wasabi. I love those two thick braids! It also comes with an optional hat decorated with an Ankh, quite suitable for Halloween, but here I am wearing the headscarf included with the dress.
Our own RL dogs, a pair of boxers, would definitely agree with this bunch that the kitchen is the best place in the house, even if the bed (not their bed) comes a close second. I think that their ideal would be a bed IN the kitchen. ;)
The new dark and delicious Dryad skin from Fallen Gods for We Love Role-Play is called “Blackwood” and it seemed to me that such a dryad would make her (or his, the skin is available for both genders) home in the deepest parts of the woods. The Fall Court Circlet from Kreep, with its pale mushrooms, felt like just the right crown for the queen among such dryads. And her throne? Those twisted brambles from Lore again, here placed in a dark forest tarn. I also went for some shopping at the Halloween Shop & Hop and came away with an appropriate set of swamp trees from Fundati’s Ultimate Swamp Setto add to the feeling of a ancient forest.
The October round of We Love Role-Play is just a day away, so I slipped into something naughty to do a little bit of teasing. Though the outfit is not for WLRP, instead it is Petrichor & Ersch for Kinky. The Kevrys bodysuit is more open than closed and accentuated by delicate chains and matched by a collar. Very sexy in the way it frames the body and of course the HUDs give you tons of texture options. My hair is by Truth and Wasabi for Anthem, which opens today. Rain is a delicious long style with four style options plus optional bangs. Perfect for the sultry look I wanted and which is enhanced by the eyeshadow from Poema which is one of the things coming to WLRP, together with a matching lipstick set, each offering 9 colours. The other piece from WLRP is the spectacular tattoo by Nefekalum, which of course uses materials for that extra effect and includes 20 colour combinations in two opacities each.
The poses (or rather, animations) are from the bed by Lore, which is actually from the last round of WLRP. An unwelcome visitor in the form of a nasty cold kept me from blogging that before the round ended, but I really wanted to show off the bed with its matching table and lamp and it gave an interesting vibe to this scene.
Short Leash has a fun set called “Charm School” out at We Love Role-Play and it served as the inspiration for a school-themed setup. The set includes the globe, the inkwells and the candle and includes a HUD with texture options. As my outfit I picked the flirtatious Thirteen from deviousMind, which definitely has a gothic school uniform vibe. The lovely amethyst colourway is matched by the eyeshadow from Rubedo, also available in several other colours and with matching lip tints. The dress and the makeup are also from WLRP, and all items have a discount of between 15% and 30% for the event.
The cute hairstyle is another excellent Truth Collective release, a collaboration between Truth and Wasabi. I also wanted to mention the head I am using. It is the rereleased Bella from Logo, now with EvoX support, and I have to say it is much more versatile now. A very nice update!
A bit of a different beach photo, with dark clouds in the sky and dark waves rolling in over the sand. I wanted dramatic lighting to match the slightly windblown style of Imani, the latest Truth Collective collaboration between Truth and Wasabi. I also thought it suited the other collaboration I am wearing, namely the Bariel Bodysuit by Petrichor and Ersch. The dark blue shade I selected on the Gloss HUD, one of several available texture packs, put me in mind of a sea at night.
What better way to go hunting in the deep woods than with a bow and your trusted wolf?
The gnarly bridge leading over the stream and providing access to the woods is by Lore, as is the tree arch at the end of it. The bridge is almost made to look like it has grown into this shape, with the ends looking like roots. With the tree arch placed at one end, the impression is strengthened. You’ll find both at the current round of We Love Role-Play.
My tunic and my boots are also available at We Love Role-Play, from Viki and Kegel, respectively. The gorgeous long hair is another collaboration between Truth and Wasabi and features four different style options. The poses and the bow are an older set from HopScotch. And finally, the wolf is of course Teegle’s new release from the Fantasy Faire, here with an applier from The Flying Pony.
I love taking photos at the Fantasy Faire while the Fairelands are still around, but to show off the beautiful new buildings from Del-ka Aedilis I had to return home and play around with building a whole new renaissance quarter to accommodate them! There’s a total of eight new buildings added to the Medici series and I’ve worked three of those into my setup together with a pair of previous releases. In addition, I have added decor pieces from Harshlands and Contraption. But first, lets take a look at what I am wearing.
There’s a secret lair on Opera, well-stocked with wine and luxuriously furnished. Make sure you explore the sim thoroughly; it was beautiful before it was fully decorated and now it is just stunning. I wish it would stay around so that I could move in there, but alas, the Fairelands are ephemeral.
But I did at least get to move into the lair for a round of photos and naturally I needed a decadent and mysterious appearance for this. I picked Faida’s Brielle gown in Noir, one of two colours available as an RFL donation item. This slinky gown features a lace across the breasts, naughtily hinting but not revealing too much. I wanted to bring out the lovely Khara body again and Faida provides plenty of clothing for her already.
A mask was of course needed and this one comes from Hanzel. This is the standard version but there is also an RFL version. It makes beautiful use of materials and the HUD includes a nice range of possible texture options. And to add a touch of danger, the fingertips from the Vonnika hand jewelry set by Drunken Brokkr. The Kupra size will work for Khara as the hands are the same.
Just waiting at the castle’s forge for her father to return home from the tavern, where he has been spending too much time of late.
The Brokk Blacksmith set from Del-ka Aedilis is a nice set of non-animated props for creating a norse/medieval forge. I did find the lack of an anvil curious, so I added one from another set. The fires can be doused or lit and each piece comes in either plain wood or with a norse-inspired pattern.
I am wearing three new releases from We Love Role-Play. First we have the Atlas Gorget from Kreep, a very fancy piece of smithing which includes male and female fits and several texture options. The tunic is by Senzafine and I love the asymmetric cut. Finally, we have the Gudrun boots from Rakshasa. These are available for several male and female bodies and include a HUD for texture changes. Very nice and useful boots.
My hair is also a new release, the latest Truth & Wasabi collaboration called Seri. It comes in two versions, like this or with bangs, and is available at Kustom9.
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 Truth Collective is a collaboration between Truth and, at the moment, Faga and Wasabi. The Rowena style is by Truth and Wasabi, with Wasabi making the mesh and using Truth’s regular textures. The style comes with and without bangs and with the long ponytails either thicker or thinner. Its a pretty cool idea, this kind of collaboration, and it will be interesting to see what other styles come out of it.
The outfit is called YingShui and it is from another NextUp collection by deviousMind. Yellow isn’t usually my thing, but if you call it Gold or, as here, Saffron, I am all for it. ;) The collection includes two types of commons, the shorts & top shown here and a dress, as well as several rares. The tattoo is again Ceres from Nefekalum, but here I am using the golden base and the red overlay together. The pose comes with the couch, which is by Roawenwood.
The faerie leads you through a flowering field towards a secret door beneath a hill. Will you dare to follow her? If you do, will you ever emerge into the world again and will a hundred years have passed in a day?
We Love Role-Play is open for another round and I love how the releases from deviousMind and lassitude & ennui go together (you’ll see the latter in the second photo) for a dryad/faerie look. To find the perfect spot to photo this, I paid a long overdue visit to Ode and found it as lovely as I remembered.
deviousMind’s April outfit is a bikini made up of flowers, butterflies and bees. You can choose between three levels of coverage for both top and bottom. The Dryad shoes from lassitude & ennui are low, lace-up boots that look as if they’re made from leaves. Both the bikini and the shoes are for Maitreya Lara only.
Both poses used are from Be My Mannequin? The first is Pandora (includes the key prop) from the Pandora’s Box fatpack and the second is Vastness from the Star Gazer fatpack.
With Dutchie‘s latest release, chances are the male avatars in your life will take significantly longer to get dressed. The new mainstore release is a walk-in closet for men with a wide array of (display) clothing options. Indeed, if you get the full closet package you also get boxes of additional display clothing on hangers or folded as well as extra display shoes. You can use these to switch out the contents in the wardrobe or to decorate with. Or why not as props, as I do in the second photo? The clothing, both the pieces already in the wardrobes and the extras, can also be tinted for further customization. If you just want the display clothing, you can buy this separately.
There are 10 different wardrobe setups included, 7 with different clothing contents (5 wide, 2 narrow) and 3 closed (1 wide, 2 narrow). You get 6 texture options for the wood, where the white and black make excellent bases for tinting. The wardrobes can be arranged together any way you wish, so if you don’t have the right room for a full walk-in closet setup, it will still work beautifully.
The only downside is that you can’t actually wear any of the stylish pieces filling up the wardrobes! But it does make it look like you have a very expensive Second Life clothing collection.
