Blind folk see the fairies.
Oh, better far than we,
Who miss the shining of their wings
Because our eyes are filled with things
We do not wish to see.
Enchantment is open, and with it White Widow released thie gorgeous tattoo of butterfly wings for your back. I love everything she makes…the delicacy and detail to all of her designs is amazing. So, if you aren’t familiar with White Widow, you should stop by her mainstore and buy ALL THE THINGS. Also, stop by Enchantment because this round is Peter Pan inspired and the sim is lovely, and the designs gorgeous. You can see my first post about it here.
The pixie rarely traveled far from the forest, which was miles behind her. She could feel the trees calling to her even now, beckoning her to return to safety. They were not only her home and her companions, but also a part of her. And when they were distant, she felt incomplete, lost, and broken. Of course, she longed to return, but she would not be returning without her friends. Certainly, they felt the same pull from the far away forest, and she could not imagine (or did not want to imagine) what malevolent forces had captured them or why.
As she flew onward, away fromt he forest, the sky and sea became one, each reflecting into the other creating an infinite darkness that was only interupted by the tiny shards of glass scattered above and reflected below. The beacon flashed just ahead, which warned ships of the shore into which they would soon crash if they did not head its warning. It was the only thing that penetrated the encompassing darkenss, but even that light would fade and eventually be consumed by it. The pixie trembled, but tt was not the darkness she feared. It was that light; the darkness was her disguise.

So, Enchantment is open with tons of lovely Peter Pan themed items. Including this adorable fairy outfit with leaf wings by Snowpaws. There is also a really lovely bun by No_Match encircled by a ring of ivy.
This lovely skin is from AlterEgo and includes appliers for the Catwa head and Bentbox ears. No color matching, yay!
Also being released at Enchantment are these little Tinkerbell cages, with the tiny pixie darting about inside. It makes me a lil sad to see Tink captures, but let’s pretend it is just her home. :D
…and finally from Cole’s Corner a cute lil typer. This one was intended for a mermaid so it pushes your legs together, but I still like it even on mah fae. Please excuse my cursor, trying to remember to not move it while capturing the gif. >.<

Sooo…I really thought I posted this a week ago. My mind is apparently gone. I am so sorry. However, since I didn’t, I decided to do a lil gif of the Musa puzzle ball animation, which is pretty awesome!
Clickety-click for the delightful deetz, mah lil bloglings:
Her hands trembled, and the crystal which hovered above her cupped palms trembled with them. Light projected from the faceted sides. This light was not a reflection, but an emantion of the light which she poured into its core.
Calm. She had to remind herself. The anxiety which caused her hands to quiver had to be pushed down, but the crystal shook more violently and almost tumbled from her fingertips.
Breathe. Eyelashes brushed against cheeks flushed with exertion. As her chest rose slowly, from the deep intake of air, her hands calmed. The crystal vibrated under the flow of magic. It was a difficult task that required all her concentration and energyn and would leave her feeling bereft for days. But she needed to contain some of her power, for when she would be too weak to generate her own. It was this need for preparation which pushed her forward.
Another round of We Love Roleplay opened on the fourth of this month. As always, it doesn’t fail to disappoint. I love this beautiful dress by Moon Amore. I can’t seem to get enough of their work. It comes with a HUD to change various aspects, including the metal from silver to gold and back to silver again as many times as your lil indecisive heart desires.
Also, the most wonderful things was released by Bentbox this round. They have these adorable elf ears, which are animated! They come with so many options. Below you can see a gif of the animation, and then a couple screenshots of the HUD, you can see the different options for the animations and how many they come with. They’re really amazing.
The animations are really fun. As you can see below in the HUD shot not only are there tons of options for just your normal ear animation, but there are different ones for the ears to respond differently when you walk and run. How cute is that?!
Some HUD shots:
As you can see, you can turn on and off the piercings (all or just some of them) and change their color. There are also 5 options for tattoos, as well as the ability to create your own applier. These tattoos are tintabls as well, through the skin tint portion. You can even make each ear different, if you like.
Bloglings, this post is long in coming and I apologize for how long it has taken me. Honestly, some things have happened in RL, that have really drained me lately. It is difficult for me to find inspiration (though not impossible). I struggle with the ability to focus on anything long enough to actually accomplish any task lately. Some things are just really difficult for me right now. So, I quit my blogger groups for the moment. I need to gather myself together. I will continue blogging, but it may be intermittent. I still have stories to tell, they just may take more time to be born.
She could feel the change of the seasons in the air that surrounded her. The air still held that serotinal warmth, but it drifted along the surface of her skin with a crispness that had not been there the preceding week. It was an indication that she must find a place to settle soon. The idea made her itch. The simple idea of settling for a few months in a single place made her feel trapped. What a boring, stagnant life. What were lasting and loving relationships to others were monotony and risk to her. The comfort of familiarity to other people was tedious repetition.
This post is brought to you by serendipity, my lil bloglings. We Love Roleplay is open and wonderful. Coincidentally (or serendipitously) The Skinnery released this lovely faun skin with appliers for Lelutka. It is beautifully detailed. During this same round Doe released this ridiculously adorable hair tangled in antlers. But that is not all, blogettes. Gauze just recently updated their faun legs with appliers for mesh bodies. The stars have aligned, and we all need faun avatars now.
Also released at We Love Roleplay this round is this underbust corset/bodysuit thingy. I don’t know what to call it except lovely. It is beautifully details and though it is rigged and not fitted mesh, I was able to get it to fit my Maitreya body quite nicely.
I”m sorry but I don’t have a story today for you, bloglings. It has been a very difficult week for me, and I’m pretty behind. But I have so many lovely things for you!
If you haven’t made your way into The Arcade yet, keep trying. This doll avatar is worth every Linden you’ll dump into that machine. Bloglings, I’m not usually a doll avatar kind of gal. However, I love the creativity and detail on the rare with the carousel. And the hip joints on all the of them are kinda wonderful, I’m not sure why I’m enamored with that part
Also! We Love Roleplay opened. So, you know the first thing I did was hop over and grab a skin from one of my favorite skin makers, Lumae. The skin is a pretty close match to the mesh doll avatar, though not perfect. It was good enough for me bloglings. There are so many nice things this round that I am really can’t wait to show you.
(Because the photo above was taken before WLRP opened, the skin in that photo is Redmint).
She let the warmth of the coffee mug soak into the palms of her hands while exhaling a sigh in contentment. It had been so long since she felt warmth travel along the surface of her skin. A small smile curled across her lips as she looked down at the smooth skin on her hands and arms, skin unmarred by scales. How she missed that.She drew in a deep breath, letting it fill her lungs and held it there, relishing the simple rush of air for an extended moment before releasing it. But the comfort of warmth and air could not dispel the worry that tainted her eyes.
She could feel the cold magic that was held in the trinket around her neck; it weighed heavily against her. There could only be two ends to this story. Ursula could win, making her able to be human once more, permanently casting off a curse that haunted her for years. Otherwise, Ariel would win the human prince’s heart, and Ursula would be cast back to the cold depths of the unforgiving ocean. Neither was an optimal situation. A shiver traveled along her body at the thought of the cold waters once more. The prince could not love Ariel, for Ursula could not bear to be trapped by the sea again.
Unfortunately, this round of Enchantment will end on September 5th, this coming Saturday. If you haven’t stopped by, I’m pretty sure you must have a will of iron, because there are so many lovely things there. One of the items is this amazingly detailed and beautiful corset by FDD Stories, an ultra rare in the gacha. It come with a very detailed HUD for so much customization. So, it is really worth popping a few linden into that machine and taking your luck. Also at this round is this really lovely seashell necklace on a ribbon by Sweet Thing. It has a bit of glow to it which reminds me of the movie as Ariel’s voice is trapped inside. This also comes with HUD for changing the color of the ribbon and the shell.
I also wanted to mention (albeit a bit delayed), that this lovely skin is from la petite morte and is absolutely beautiful. It comes as a head applier for Lelutka and Genesis heads. These appliers were only 75L for the Saturday Sale. I’ll tell you a lil secret though (ya know, cause I like you bloglings) they are still up for that price. So, grab them quick, I don’t know how long that will last.
A soft cry emerged from deep in her throat as she lifted the bone structure of her wings. Each movement was drenched in agony, but she was surprisingly steady. She could feel the cool night air along the exposed nerves, alighting shards of pain that caused her body to tremble faintly. Torn muscles and tendons lamented the need for movement as the bones slowly rose higher and higher around her. Blood ran in tiny trails along the bones and dried along the edges or dripped off the tiny bits of flesh that remained.
Reluctantly she opened her eyes and looked out at the water in despair. The water reflected the deep darkness of the night sky, making the vista an interminable view of tenebrous light. Eyes lowered to the water before her so she could consume her reflection along the mirrored surface. A deep breath lifted her hunched shoulders momentarily as if she were breathing in the horror at the sight of herself in the water.
She wanted so desperately to be filled with the same anger that incited them to do this to her. She wanted to feel the wrath well up from inside and consumer her like the ravenous beast they claimed she was. She wanted to feel it pulse in her temples and drive her muscles. But she felt nothing, nothing but exhaustion, a deep fatigue that weighted along every limb of her body.
So, this gorgeous gown was released at We Love Roleplay by Valentina E. It now comes with a fitted version for Maitreya, but the straps still don’t have the greatest fit. I don’t care. The gown is still freakin’ gorgeous, as usual from V.e. Also, these amazing wings from Jian were released at Festival of Sin. They are absolutely beautifully grotesque. The wings come mod, but cannot be sized down in one piece. These are the size they came and are quite large, so be aware of that when purchasing them.
