Glorious October, Bakes on Mesh is finally in Firestorm! Oh, and yeah, its THAT month in Second Life, where the whole grid goes Halloween-mad. There’s no escaping that and with Bakes on Mesh available to me I can dig up all sorts of older skins, makeups and tattoos that suit the theme. Even better, because all of those are individual layers (okay, it isn’t so good for my inventory but it has been a lost cause for many years) I can easily see what I am wearing when the time comes to get the credits sorted.
In these images, I am wearing the Bakes on Mesh-ready Athena head from LightStar with a Tuli skin, alaskametro makeup and silentsparrow tattoos. I am going to get a lot of mileage out of my LightStar heads now that I am not limited to Omega appliers.
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.
It is no secret that I love virtual lingerie and for several years the Insolence brand, created by camilla Yosuke, was one of my favourites in Second Life. Then the releases stopped coming and once I moved to a mesh body I could no longer wear the existing pieces either. But a few weeks ago, a surprise notice arrived. Insolence was back, with mesh lingerie. The initial release was only for the Maitreya body, but the release notice promised that versions for other mesh bodies would be coming along. And just before I took off for Barcelona, the Slink versions (for the original and the hourglass body) arrived.
For all those with a virtual sweet tooth, the Candy Fair is now running. I mixed up a few things from the fair with some pieces from Salem and the Epiphany for my sweet but naughty little witch. Trick or treat!
The golden round of The Secret Affair has already provided me with material for several posts and I am not quite done yet. This time I’ve come to the releases by Noble Creations and Paper Moon, which I have paired with a new Omega applier lingerie from the Muses.
A beautiful set of lingerie from Luxuria, soon to be released at The Liaison Collaborative which opens later today, draped in body jewellery by Aisling and with the scene accentuated by decorations and trinkets by the latter brand, in both cases from We Love Role-Play. Quite the change from the shots I did earlier today, but that is a big part of the charm of Second Life for me.
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.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist that! But you really don’t want to miss that Sn@tch 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!
Well, I had something a lot longer written, but my browser crashed. So, this will have to be short and sweet instead. I am wearing the Rose lingerie from Luxuria for the Gacha Guardians event, paired with a pair of heels from Salt & Pepper from the same event. Gacha Guardians is an in-store gacha event where you fill out a HUD to get access to a prize room where you can claim Gifts of the Guardians if you have played a machine enough. Luxuria offers matching a matching body suit in four colours as their gift. The black set with garters and stockings that I am wearing is the rare of the regular lingerie.
More and more creators are now moving to offering their mesh as fitmesh, either based on “Ruth” or on specific bodies, and the advantage in terms of fit over “Standard Sizes” is quite considerable. Producing fitmesh for all different bodies still involves a lot of work, however, so I am very happy that many creators have opted for supporting more than one brand. But why am I going on about this today? Because the Muses has re-released some of my favourite gowns in four fitmesh sizes for the classic/system body, Slink’s two bodies and an experimental size for the Maitreya Lara body. So, I am taking a second look at a couple of them, and as it happened they went beautifully with some new jewellery from Aisling.
Fortunately, I don’t need my voice to write a blog post, because its been mostly gone for the last few days thanks to this virus. I’ve also had an incredibly sore throat and I am just so done with being sick right now. The weather has been glorious (if a bit too hot) and I’ve mostly been coughing in bed. But, enough about my misery and onto a mix of new items from among others Noble Creations, ieQED and Silentsparrow. I decided to setup this scene in our new castle by Fanatik—if I am going to decorate every room, I will need a lot of new furnishings!
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).
The latter half of May was eaten up by illness and scrambling to meet deadlines, so I am still behind on my reviews. But even though last month’s We Love Role-Play is over and the new one is just around the corner, I just had to combine a preview from Aisling from the new round with on my favourite items from the last round. After all, who can resist having their very own Iron Throne?
Another busy weekend and I find myself with a long list of new releases that I want to share with you. Quite a few of them come courtesy of We Love Role-Play and this is the case with the two new releases from Aisling that are the focus of this post. Which, by the way, includes a fair bit of nudity.
A few days still remain of the Fantasy Faire, but I am taking a little semi-break to sneak in some other items as well. With this saucy Faida & Fallen Gods collaboration from the Epiphany, I decided that some lounging about on the opulent Justine couch (also by Fallen Gods) would be just the right environment. The hair, however, is actually from the Fantasy Faire and by Wasabi Pills.
