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!
What is the note slipped between the pages of the slim volume about? A warning? A secret assignation? Perhaps the message was found by chance, meant for someone else entirely?
From We Love Role-Play’s September round comes a collaboration between Portal and Barracuda. The Oren set, which includes a belted tunic and pants, comes in a silk and a rough leather version. Each includes several colour combinations for mixing and matching between tunic and pants and the set includes fits for Legacy Male and Legacy Athletic. This event exclusive release is sold at 25% off.
Also from WLRP are the Lune eyes by Musa, which you can see a close-up of in the second picture. The colour I am wearing is from the Fantasy pack and you can get it and the other colours at 30% off while at the event.
Finally, I’m using yet another torch from the set by Tirrany Designs, which is 25% off.
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.
In a forest clearing sits a cosy cottage. If the weather allows, the window shutters and the door stands open, welcoming any visitor who might be seeking out the herbalist.
The Herbalist’s Cot Heiltrud and the various furnishings (alcove bed in PG or Adult, worktable, fireplace, chair and shelf) are by Del-ka Aedilis for We Love Role-Play, with each piece sold separately. The cottage has two versions, one with and one without flowers and herbs on the outside. There are also alternative pieces for the fireplace, worktable and chair.
The pretty embroidered gown is a collaboration between Les Encantades and Una and judging by this dress they should do more! I really like the texturing, it feels a bit unusual, and its nicely fitted. For ornamentation, I added the Ekka headband from Angelicus. And, of course, the pretty Harmony hairstyle from Wasabi comes with the lovely flowers (but can also be worn without).
A mysterious sorceress, living alone in a grand elven palace permanently enshrouded in mists. Is she about to welcome her visitor or cast a spell on them?
From We Love Role-Play (open until the 28th) comes the magic energy swirls by En Pointe, the leaf wrap bracelets by Sigma and the beautiful build by Tirrany Designs. Scroll down for more pictures to see the latter two items more clearly. En Pointe’s release includes a HUD that controls the colour and style of the swirls and Sigma’s bracelets also come with several metal options as well as fits for a range of bodies.
The dress is a Petrichor and Ersch collaboration for Midsummer Enchantment. It is highly customizable, allowing you to show or hide the dress and the accessories in sections and of course retexture many pieces individually.
Finally we have the Dasha hair from Wasabi which is a Hair Fair release that donates 15% of the proceeds to Wigs for Kids. This long, straight hair offers four style options and hair clips that can be shown or hidden.
Grasshopper St has a great release for male roleplayers at this round of We Love Role-Play. A medieval tunic with a matching cyclas, both with extensive particolour options through the HUD. There is also an embroidery overlay for the cyclas, just as for the earlier Eleanor gown and surcote. For this post, I did not use the embroidery, but I did play around with the colours, including the tinting option to get deeper tones. I’ll note that while I am wearing it over the Slink body, since that is the male body I own, it is not fitted for this body but does cover six other male bodies.
Another release at the event that is available for male as well as female avatars is Sigil’s the Bard’s Lute. This beautiful lute comes with a playable version for male or female avatars with holding and playing animation, a version worn over the shoulder and a version that can be worn on the back or rezzed as a prop. Time to woo the lady in your life with a romantic ballad, perhaps?
I love how ornate the Carai outfit from Petrichor and Ersch for the Warehouse Sale manages to be even though there isn’t a lot of it! The thin chains drape beautifully from the pieces of filigree and the fabric (for which there are several different HUDs) is subtly patterned. There is, of course, also a HUD for the metal which offers lots of different textures. Prefer feminine pastels or darkly sensual hues? The choice is yours. I am always drawn to lush colours and I wanted something suited for a courtesan to lounge about in an opulent bed in. Speaking of the bed, it is a favourite of mine, the renaissance canopy bed from Fantavatar & Moonstruck. The other new release in this post is the hair from Wasabi, featuring two thick braids that can be draped over your shoulders or pushed back behind them. Here I’ve got one of each. You will find it at the Fifty.
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 the new dress from Tres for We Love Role-Play. Nephi is a scripted gown available for Inithium Khara, Legacy and Maitreya Lara that offers various states of undress through a Touch-menu. My favourite is this version, with the bodice pulled down to reveal one breast. However, the top only and bottom only versions have an added benefit—you can wear two dresses and get the top and bottom in different colours! I am wearing the Khara size and don’t forget that We Love Role-Play has a raffle for 5 Khara bodies that you can join by wearing the group tag and clicking one of the raffle boards at the event.
Also from We Love Role-Play is the Helvi forehead chain by NeonSheep, a very delicate and pretty piece of jewellery that I have included a close-up of below. It comes with a HUD for texture changes.
Even Ran picked up some new clothing from We Love Role-Play, after I pointed him to the Colorblock Doublet from Stitched. For male RP clothing, Stitched is definitely one of the best sources and this is a really nicely made doublet. I just wish someone was making this kind of clothing in female fits too. ;)
And though you don’t see too much of it, the interior is from Tirrany Designs Stylized Medieval Tavern. I really like the look of this build, but it is quite large and a little difficult for me to get good use of given my attempts at more realistic avatar sizes.
A new round of We Love Role-Play is dancing your way, full of new releases. It opens on the 4th of the month as usual and this round is also the Birthday Round, which means that there will be gifts available for group members. The first thing that caught my eye for this round was the pose set by Musa, featuring five dancing poses. I love the expressiveness of the arm and hand positions in particular and it seemed like a perfect match with the Melissa set from Kegel. I also added the Sunnidhar hand jewelry by Drunken Brokkr, to further accentuate the arms.
The hair is a new release from Wasabi, a very cute shoulder-length style with four different options that for example vary the bangs and whether or not you have the little mini braids framing the face. I’d love to see a longer version of this as well!
I’ve lost this post twice already and I have a headache, so for now I am posting this without the full credits and links. The dress is by Una, the mask by Cerberus and the halberd and cuffs by Petrichor. Poses by Pink Moon and chanimations and everything mentioned except the chanimations pose are from the Fantasy Faire. More to come when I have stopped cursing my website.
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 large inn lay furthest out on the peninsula and served travellers coming both by land and sea. The dusky interior was cheerfully lit by torches and by the smile of the tavernkeep’s daughter.
There are so many new releases that I absolutely adore in this post. First, make certain not to miss the Spring Edition of the Asha hair from Wasabi, out for 50 Linden Friday. This is my favourite braid in Second Life and it is so pretty with the flowers. I had already decided on wearing Asha for this post and then the special edition came out and made the look even better, its so sweet together with the lovely Emma gown by Les Encantades, a new release for We Love Role-Play. The dress can be worn with or without the embroidered corset and the fullpack you can mix and match the colours.
There’s a brand new release from Dutchie at FaMESHed and this is my favourite kind, a fabulous bed with plenty of naughty options. I’ve focused on those in this review, but rest assured that there are many other great animations as well if PG or plain Adult are your preferences rather than BDSM.
The Antique Iron Bed features a beautiful frame that definitely lends itself very well to tying someone up, which is what you will be able to do if you opt for the Maledom BDSM version of the bed. In total, this version has 210 couple animations, with 70 of them being specific to it. I found the animations using props particularly nice, such as the wax play (the candle even functions as a light source) and the feather teasing. There are also many great choices among the other sex menus as well as the PG menus, such as some very sweet resting together animations and a sleeping animation where the bed rezzes the covers on top of you. Very cosy! All versions of the bed are AVsitter experience enabled, so props will auto-attach, and the adult versions have automatic tilting for Aeros and the Physics Cock. The BDSM version also adds RLV options.
Of course, it isn’t just about the animations, even if they are very important! The bed is also beautifully made and offers 9 colour combinations for the blanket and spread and 3 metal options for the frame. The style is a classic that will fit a variety of homes. And to help furnish your bedroom, there are a few additional items released alongside the bed: a lovely wooden chest, a lamp that comes in a floor version and a table version and some smaller decor items.
Below you’ll find eight images showing just a fraction of the animations. And yes, there’s NSFW content.
