Eyelids fluttered shut against pale cheeks, removing her from the stage. Instead, she was there in the forest. The painted particle board became large, ancient tress that bowed over her graciously. The hard surface of the stage became soft, warm earth covered in plush grass beneath her bare feet. She heard birds chittering in the distance.
Palms of trembling hands smoothed over the thick velvet of her gown. They moved slowly, first over her bodice then down her skirt overflowing with a pettiskirt. As they traveled, the trembling slowly abated.
She remembered back to her childhood. Dressed in a plastic tiara and bits of clothes she found at yard sales, she pretended to be a princess. Other childred mocked her. They told her that trash could never be royalty. And now she was pretending again. A smile alighted on her face; it revealed itself more in her cheeks than her lips. She pretended to be many things as a child. She would continue to do the same as an adult on stage.
Retroville Gacha opens on the 15th and DRD is releasing this really cute studio set. The insert that I used on the stage that looks like a play set is one of many different sceneries available in the gacha: forest, castle, sci-fi, a street, western town, etc. All of them look pretty phenomenal. There is also a studio building for you to put one in at a time and a casting couch and director’s chair as rares. It is a really lovely set.
This Pixicat dress is a new release at We Love Roleplay. It is sumptuously detailed for nobility, exactly as intended. Look at the backs of the sleeves! Also, at We Love Roleplay this round is a beautiful hair from Elikatira. It has a side braid and comes with a lovely circlet. Circlets are my favorite!

Looking at an old blog post? Is the event over or the landmark out of date? No problem! Go to the menu and find the Stores page in the upper right-hand corner. Here is a list of all the stores I have blogged. I have their blog and flickr linked if I was able to find them. The landmark or marketplace is also linked. Most importantly, I have the name of the creator listed. When in SecondLife. search for the name and they should have an updated landmark in their profile picks!
You can also find a list of events, sorted by how often they recur with fairs at the bottom. Also! Some of my favorite blogs and production companies are found on the Blog Roll.
