Otherworldly

Autumn Wishes

There are few things as pretty as a forest full of autumn leaves and in Second Life that can last more than a brief time, as the leaves stay on the trees until you click the season change to winter. Using a little forest of Studio Skye trees as the backdrop, I setup the Wishing Well from Jian to take a few photos of a lovely Senzafine gown, turned slightly wicked by the ieQED hand jewellery.

Hay Fever

Artisan Fantasy releases a lot of high-quality props and furnishings, often with some kind of roleplay market in mind. For ROMP, they have released a large set of barn/stable themed pose props, as well as a few pieces of atmospheric add-ons, as the Stony Hollow collection. This seemed like the perfect opportunity for a bit of a roll in the hay, so to speak. Which means, yes, this is most definitely another NSFW post.

Wicked Wings

I have a feeling I won’t be getting more dressed photos done anytime soon, since I have quite a few more items from ROMP to cover and since even other events have ended up offering a lot of mostly-not-there “clothing”. But trust me, I am not complaining; I really like the Physique mesh body and I am always happy to show it off.

This time, its the ieQED gacha from The Gathering that has me prancing about showing off my skin, complimented by We Love Role-Play releases from Calico and lassitude & ennui.

Chained

ieQED has put out another set of body jewellery and I took that as an opportunity to show off Tuli’s Willow skin and her Slink appliers in yet another tone. As it happened, the body jewellery also went quite well with the latest jewellery release from Jian.

Twice Bejewelled

I love jewellery in both RL and SL, but SL definitely has the advantage in that I can’t really wear nothing but jewellery in RL. Or rather, there never seems to be quite the time and place for it. ;) In SL, however, the opportunities are as many as you want them to be and there are plenty of choices for what to wear. The latest to land in my inventory is two matched sets from ieQED. I also took this opportunity to show off a Pink Fuel skin and a favourite hair from Calico, which has just moved to a new location.

Hidden in the Desert

I have tried swearing off gachas more than once, but sometimes a release crops up that is just too tempting. Such was the case when I saw the previews for Ane‘s Moroccan Market gacha for The Chapter Four. Fortunately, I managed to get enough pieces to put together the build (alas, still missing the filler walls) without spending too much, giving me a nice backdrop for some photos.

That Little Red Dress

Whew. Finally back at my own desk. Not that I haven’t had a great time, but I did miss the conveniences of home…not the least my large screen. I have a sizeable blogging backlist, so today I dove right in to give you a look at some of Jian’s recent releases, accompanied by items from alaskametro, ieQED, Maxi Gossamer, Wasabi Pills and PXL.

Sail Away

I’ll be trying to get a few quick posts up today, or maybe just prepared in advance, since I am probably going on a bit of vacation (unless the weather gets even worse, that is). But that’s why I’ll be a bit briefer than usual.

The Vita necklace and earrings (which come in nine pearl colours and five metals) by ieQED for Shiny Shabby seemed like just the thing for a beachy setting, so I went off to the [email protected] sale (alas, I believe it ended yesterday) and hunted down a mesh bikini. Eliza is a cute tied model with a nice pattern and several vibrant colours included. You get both a rigged version (top and bottom all in one) and unrigged versions of the top and bottom separately.

The hair is one of Wasabi Pills Hair Fair releases, Saffron.

Intriguing

ROMP’s summer fair is now open, offering a wide array of releases on the theme “elegant kink”. My favourite pieces this time around was some of the clothing, such as the latest collaboration between Fallen Gods and Faida. In these pictures, I’ve paired it with the matching male release from these two brands for the Arena as well as a release from Jian for the Fantasy Collective.

Making Magic

I can’t believe it is already June (the fact that the weather feels more like April—at best!—probably has something to do with it), but apparently it is true because the June round of We Love Role-Play is about to open at 3 pm SLT. This time, I find myself fully kitted out in new releases from the event, from creators such as PXL, Calico, Luminary, lassitude & ennui and ieQED.

The Audience

Senzafine‘s release for The Fantasy Collective is a gown with some of the most lush textures and striking colour combinations that I’ve seen in Second Life. As often happens when I have something really pretty to blog, I found myself a bit daunted—how could I do it justice? I’ll leave it up to you to decide how well (or not) I managed. I did decide I needed to call in my favourite prop, aka Ran, to make more of a scene of it.

By the Fireplace

From a wintery wood to a camp in the desert, to show off new releases by Jian, Luminary and ieQED, matched with older ones from Tuli and Exile.

Contemplation

The Plastik is definitely more than fantasy clothes and accessories and the striking gown I am wearing in this post is just one of many examples of the versatility of the brand. Also featured is one of the new hairs from Calico for this round of We Love Role-Play.

Easter Maiden

It has not been a good couple of weeks since I last posted, so I have been slow to embrace the change of season and start looking forward to the rest of the year again. But Easter is hard to just ignore (and Easter candy always helps to perk one up), so when a box of adorable new releases showed up from Dysfunctional Designs, I found myself with a bit of inspiration again.

Skin Fair 2015: alaskametro

After being stolen away by RL for a few days it is time to take a look at another new skin release from the Skin Fair. This time we’ll be looking at alaskametro‘s new skin line. And, before we get around to the nudity, I am taking a look at some new accessories from Senzafine and ieQED.
