Demon. – Kustom9, The Secret Affair, FaMESHed, and MBA

The city was cold. It was not a city she could love, but it was a city which held the comfort of familiarity. It was a familiarity even her own home no longer had. The foreign cities of the surface dwellers were cold and damp. Air and water were indistinguishable here, hanging heavily, making the stone the cities were built from cold and damp. Stone, which to her, had always been warm and dry or molten and flowing. Here it was stolen, transformed. It lay about the city, cut away from the earth, now cold and alone. It was no longer a part of the Earth. Instead it had become exanimate, sad and broken from its home. She understood this rock. She felt cold and displaced here, too.

The stone could not be returned to its place in the Earth; it could not reunite with the Earth again. And she could not return home to a city that had probably forgotten her, to a city she barely remembered, but could still feel along the heated surface of her skin that it was somehow a part of her.

When they had taken her, the surface dwellers had called her a demon. They chained her and whipped her. It took most of her adolescence to fully understand the implications of their religious name-calling (and their language for that matter).

And now, after years of servitude, she was free. Her freedom hung loosely around her neck. The chain of an unheld leash mocking any who think they might be able to control her again. But most of them knew better by now, playing with fire is a dangerous thing for a surface dweller…uneducated, filthy lot that they were.

Hello again, bloglings. A few really great rounds are happening right now. FaMESHed is about to close which is where I picked up the bikini top by Just Because.

Then, at Kustom9, there are these amazing gloves with nails by Violent Seduction. They’re part of a gacha set, but the gloves are one of the commons and the dresses are the rares. So good luck! I just couldn’t stop photographing them; they’re so freakin’ dramatic. That is also where I picked up the collar/leash by Gabriel.

Also! The MBA Bimonthly event is back this month, with this great skirt/bikini bottom from Asteria. It comes with both silver and gold metal options. You can also wear the studded binki with or without the chains and/or fringe. Options!

Aaaaand…don’t forget this round of The Secret Affair. The theme this round is gold and there are some really lovely appliers there. I picked up every single one. In the photo beelow you can see the Nanika eye make up really well, and it looks just beautiful.

The Beckoning. – Enchantment, Ultra, Secret Affair, Uber, Collabor88, Fantasy Collective

She could feel it rising behind her, its gravitational force shifting the weight of the cool, damp air around her. These tiny shifts felt as if they crackled along the surface of her dark skin. That skin which was dark as the night which shrouded her during the beginnings of her ritual. As First Sorcerer, the ritual was her responsibility and, therefore, her burden.

Throughout the night, she moved with the gravitational forces, tugged at them, beckoning them to come forward. She sauntered and dipped, staffs twirling about her, glowing like night larks. It was surprising how fluidly she moved, considering the ornate ceremonial wings which hung heavily from her back. But she did not seem burdened by them as continued the ritual for hours, her power drawing the planetary body up behind her, forcing worlds to move, governing the heavenly bodies as if she were a god.

Bloglings, in case you haven’t heard, yet (why haven’t you been reading my blog?!), Enchantment closes on the 31st. So, get your pixel booties over there because these wings from Glitzz are absolutely gorgeous. They are delicate and ornate and extremely versatile with a color change HUD. Clearly, you need to pop on over so you can be the fairy princess unicorn you’ve always dreamed of being. Collabor88 is also closing, so stop on by and pick up this bikini from Fashionably Dead (who are now doing mesh body fits!).

While some good things are coming to a lovely end, new beautiful things open to fill the void in our inventory and delightfully consumerist hearts which replace love with things pretty things. So, don’t forge to stop by the new round of Uber where you will find this floral motif tattoo in metallic tones from Uber. It looks amazing against dark skin tones. Also, there is this very functional and and simple maxi skirt from Just Because. I’m certain I’ll be wearing it often. Then at the Fantasy Collective, I snapped up this gorgeous collar from Aisling. I just wish I could get everything they make delivered to my inventory directly.

Because I love options and the ability to change my mind at ridiculous rates without reaping the consequences out on my Linden balance, I am going to show you the many options you get with the Glitzz wings and Aisling collar. Their HUDs:

Mission. – The Fantasy Collective and Uber

Darkness painted along the edges of the city, filling in the creases and alleys. The street lights broke through the darkness, but only superficially. Their light was limited and hazy, only drifting along the surfaces, never able to penetrate the thick paint of darkness that seeped into the corners. She didn’t mind. Her visual sensors were very acute, and her processing power handled the flux and flow of data seamlessly. She walked with precision and purpose. One might even confuse the look on her face for an emotion, perhaps a mixture of determination, hatred, and anger deep within her gut? No, her wiring.

She was created by man. Artificial. Unnatural. A machine. Digital. They showed her at conventions, a prototype for a new and upcoming technology. She listened to the official presenters for Omnitech who spoke of her with clarity and precision. The memories of those speeches echoed through her mind, a mind she wasn’t supposed to have (or is that just her hard-drive?). Her audio input was acutely sensitive and the words cut to her core.

She was just a product, a resource, a thing to be used. Well, she would not be spoken of this way any longer. The fierce determination on her face actually was determination. The anger welling up in her gut actually was anger. And the hatred, the most human thing about her, that painted over all her sensory input, like the darkness painted the city. It filled in the empty holes, the cracks that could have been filled with love and compassion were dripping with the sweet absolving flavor of hatred.
Mission.   I’m so dark lately, blogettes. Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll do a fairy princess unicorn mermaid post again soon. But onto the shopping goodness!

Uber opened with the theme of awesomeness…again. Okay, it is really called Street Style (and, no, that isn’t a euphemism for hooker clothes). Shi released this nice unisex, windswept bob. They also have a bun version, if you prefer. Erratic released this bikini, which I <3. I know people have been looking for bikinis because it is summer, and they want to be all beachy and cute in their mesh bodies and splashing water on each other all sexy-like on sundrenched shores. But I like this bikini because it doesn’t really look like that. It it badass and has thick straps and looks like I could kill someone in it….and I just might.

The Secret Affair is also still open, which is where LAB737 released this beauitfully textured armor. The texture on this armor is seriously crazy good. Also, if you edit linked parts, you can make the straps fit your arms perfectly.

And, yes, I’m still pushing this beauitful skin by Lumae for 100L at Genre. It is a ridiculously good deal and such a lovely skin.

A Long Night – The Secret Affair, The Epiphany, Genre, and Hair Fair

She was a creature of the night, always drifting into the shadows. Darkness had become her friend; it beckoned her. The shadows broke across the pale surface of her skin; they were a part of her and yet so very distinct from her. Her strength was in her ability to kill. Efficient death – swift and painless. Her weakness was in the blanket of guilt that shrouded her, enveloped her. But an assassin does what she must.
A long night.
Bloglings! So many events are going on right now it is overwhelming. There is the new Epiphany event which had an intriguing gacha system that allows you to redeems extra/unwanted items. The Secret Affair opened with tons of awesome things and HAIR FAIR! The Hair Fair guide is here.
A Long Night - Detail
Also, this skin is from Lumae at Genre and is only 100L, including a slew of appliers. No, like every fuckin’ applier you could ever think of. I’m serious. Think of one. Yep, it is in there.
