So, I have previously mentioned my love of subscription boxes in a gentle rant when Luxe Box first hit the grid. Because there are now so many boxes, I usually choose one a month so I don’t end up spending all my L’s on them. This month was the first round of Powder Pack, a subscription box themed around skins and makeups. I admit the primary reason I joined was because Pink Fuel was participating. But it was a really great box! It is one of my favorite subscription boxes so far. If you want to know more about Powder Pack, you can visit their website.

Also! These ears are a new release from Swallow at Shiny Shabby! They’re really beautiful and I just wanted to show you the HUD, and show you some of my other favorite ears. I am a bit of an elf ear collector, and I previously did a post on my whole collection. So, if you ‘re interested, you may want to check it out here.

The Divining – We Love Roleplay & The Fantasy Collective

The future is a fragmented and varied thing. It reveals itself only to those with the strength of mind to see it and to understand its ambiguity. She followed the fragments like veined roads on a map. Some roads were certain and prevalent. It seemed as if all other roads spawned forth from them. Other roads were hidden trails, breaking through the thicket in a forest of uncertainty. One could spend their whole lifetime monitoring these roads, looking for signs and indicators of what may come to pass. It was an exhausting task, the future whirling around her, claiming her, blinding her, and binding her to a time which was not her own. But it was task that was part of her soul and her very being.

Hello, bloglings! In case you’ve forgotten, We Love Roleplay is still selling tons of amazing roleplay gear and free Christmas presents. One item being sold by aisling is this beautiful blindfold. It comes with an extra forehead bindhi and a necklace to match. All are included with a color matching HUD for your color indecisiveness (if you’re anything like me anyhow).

The Fantasy Collective just recently opened with a special holiday gacha round. This round includes loot boxes for rares. So, each rare has three items in it. Yay! Three items in one. So, I waited specifically for this event to open because I wanted this shroud by Stitched. It fits really well. I used the no-hair version with the Truth bangs group gift.

Reverence. – Swan and Tres Chic

121616-02_001

A friend asked me if I would look at the work of Swan and see if I might enjoy blogging it. They are delicate, pretty pieces. When making the post, I feared two things. The first was misunderstanding the obvious cultural meanings  of the symbolism and, therefore, not treating it with the respect it deserves. The second was the fear of losing it in the photo, because it is so delicate.

Also, at the same time I’m trying to decide how to present the bindhi (and reading through Wiki articles on the Ohm symbol), I found this gorgeous new skin released from Milan at Tres Chic. It is a Fiore applier, and is absolutely stunning. Credits after the cut, bloglings.

L’il Imp and Video Tutorial – We Love Roleplay, The Arcade, Limit8

121016-02 (Edit 2).png

Helloooo, bloglings! I am back with a new fantasy avatar. I am in love with so many things in this post. Please excuse my excitement over superficial, inconsequential things, but they make me happy. First of all is this beautifully detailed set from Violent Seduction at The Arcade. Unfortunately, it is a gacha, but is it really lovely and I found it worth the gamble. I have previously had difficulty with the fits from Violent Seduction, but this one fits me really well. Don’t forget to demo!

So, I am so super excited about these demon wings and tail by aii. So excited that I created a whole video below about my excitement and how to use them. I’m a total nerd, so please forgive me. The tail is being released at We Love Roleplay and the wings can be purchased at the aii main store location.  These wings utilized the bento update to SecondLife, which is explained by Daria here.

This is a guest post on the MBA blog. Please visit there for the credits.

 

Ice Queen’s Lair. – WLRP, Collabor88, Winter Solstice, Cosmopolitan

She carried winter with her, wearing it like a mantle, bearing down heavily on her shoulders. But it was a burden she knew well, and she carried it with grace. Queens do not complain about the weight of their crown upon their head nor the burden of law and scepter which they grasp in delicate fingers. Instead, they carry them and wrap the weight around them like a cloak to keep them warm. And, strange as it may seem, the winter did keep her warm. No, it did not feel warm on her cool skin, but it was a comfortable cloak, a burden with which she was very familiar.

Hello, lil bloglings! A new round of We Love Role-play opened last week, in case you’ve forgotten, I’m here to remind you. At this round E.V.E released this beautiful ice sphere. It is perfect for wintry scenes, like the one above. It is modify, so you can change the level of glow on it and resize it to fit your needs. It is really beautiful. While you’re there, EMO-tions has these beautiful eye crystals on discount.

While you’re out and about searching for beautiful wintry items pop over to Winter Solstice. It is a fantasy event celebrating the beauty of winter. It is also where I picked up this very elegant and intricate neck piece by Purple Moon.

And since you’re already out shopping, you might as well stop by Cosmopolitan this round and pick up this great fur boa and by Collabor88 which just opened for this gorgeous dress by Zaara. It comes in a variety of colors to suit your needs, but this icy blue was perfect for my ice queen.

The Empty Throne – We Love Roleplay

Nature rarely takes notice when a throne sits empty. The trees still stretch their limbs towards the sky, and unfurl their leaves in the Spring. Grasses still grow plush and verdant along the ground. The sun still paints the sky with strange colors in the dawn.

So, when the long standing Elven queen took her last breath and emptied the throne, it seemed very odd to the deer that the Elves should be so concerned. But deer know nothing about the peaceful transfer of power (and the fear of wars) or the nature of governments and diplomacy. They do not know about the struggle for power after an heirless queen ascends to the ethereal plane. Nor the way a new monarch might use or abuse the throne. Nor do they know about alliances and treaties between states.

Deer know many things. They know of the soft earth under their hooves; they know the sweet taste of spring grass; they know the warmth of the serotinal sun; they know the crispness of heavy snow on the ground..They also know that the elves may fret, but the seasons will still cycle and the sun will still warm their backs in the summer.

Hello, bloglings! We Love Roleplay opens its doors again tomorrow on the fourth. With this comes two beautiful new home and garden pieces. First, this beautiful Elven throne perched atop rocks. The throne appears to be crafted from growing trees, with their roots curling around the rocks. It is beautifully detailed. Another beautifully detailed item are the Thorn Fantasy Lamps from Elysium with elegantly swirling pole and texture change available on the glass globe. They are also scripted to vary their lighting.

Don’t forget to stop by this round; it promises beautiful things. Also, check the Christmas trees for your Christmas present. ❤

To be a unicorn – The Arcade is coming!

“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.” – Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

112916-01 (Edit 2).png

Bloglings, the Arcade is coming and with it your ability to frolic around in fields as a unicorn. Thanks to Swallow for these beautiful horns they are releasing at the opening on the first of December.

Opulent Tastes – We Love Roleplay and Enchantment

112016-03-edit-1

Hello, my lil bloglings! Just wanted to show you some more beautiful things from WLRP and Enchantment. This hair from Letituier is really beautiful; the cage around the buns is so intricate. While I was Enchantment snatching up the hair, I picked up the necklace which comes with a lovely tiara from Modern Couture. And don’t forget about this round of WLRP that is still going, Clef de Peau has this top out which is fitted and looks stunning. And, of course, these bloody lipped appliers from Glam Affair are done as beautifully as all their skins.
