Data Courier – Uber

“In the cities of the future, after the first EMP wiped out the networks, code becomes more valuable than gold, and those who smuggle it weave through the darkness above the normal flight paths to keep the grid alive. These data couriers are the unsung runners of the new Dark Age.”

Hello, bloglings! Uber has opened and is full of lots of fun things this round. I’m not sure what the official theme is, but I would label it Tokyo Street Style. I was really inspired by this hoodie by Kitja. They have leather pants that go with it, but I chose to wear another pair by Canimal at the same event.

This lil story snippet above was written by my good friend Porlock. It went so well with the photo that I told him I was stealing it. ❤

Gretel’s Escape – Enchantment and Kustom9

It is strange the way our story has been told to children as a warning against being greedy for sweets. The evils that can happen to young ones who are easily lured by the simple prospects of sweets, but this is all a misunderstanding or blatant falsehoods.

My stepmother was a vicious woman, and my father was too weak and too lonely to prevent the evils she perpetrated against my bother and I. Hansel and I tried to remain in the house for love of our father, but the cruelty soon became overwhelming. The prospect of leaving home without any means or knowledge, throwing ourselves at the mercy of a forest, that was an easier reality to endure than our stepmother. So, we left. We were not tricked. Why should we have wanted to remain in such a household? The comfort of shelter was an easy price to pay to escape from that woman.

So, with little more than a change of clothes and a stale loaf of bread, we ran into the dark forest. And the way was lit by pebbles. Shiny pebbles which glistened in the moonlight as if bathed in water. The dark forest, which we had always been told was a dangerous and frightening place, welcomed us. The pebbles took us deeper into the forest’s thrall. It surrounded us. Fireflies danced in the trees as if celebrating our presence. How could we deny the forest when it welcomed us so graciously?

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!

091616-07 (Edit 2).png

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.

Caught – Enchantment Opens!

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.

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. 😀

Nostalgia – The Arcade and We Love Roleplay Opens

Alice: How long is forever?

White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.

-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Nostalgia

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).

Ursula – Final days of Enchantment

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.
Waiting for you.
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.
There's a story in her eyes.
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.

From the Dark – WLRP is Back! Epiphany is ending! And Illusion Point.

The bones of her wings spread, lifting towards the dark sky. The thick, dark membrane lined with muscle moved the hollow bones with ease and scooped up the humid air that surrounded her. One may not even notice the little necromancer if it weren’t for her wings. She was tiny but those dark, boned wings were broad and spanned out around her, creating a dark canvas for her pale skin.

She giggled as she skipped around a few crumbling gravestones and then irreverently sat atop one. Ancient words whispered from her lips with an impish smile and a deft hand flourish. At the sweet sound of her voice and the dark incantation, came a cacophony of groans and murmurs. The dead, angry for the interruption to their sleep, continued the dissonant symphony as they crawled from their resting places to meet their new mistress.
From the dark.

Blloglings! We Love RP is back and better than ever for the August round. Our favorite shopping event now has its own sim! It opens tomorrow and with the opening Souzou Eien is releasing these beautifully dark wings. They come with a color HUD and are still modifiable. I love when designers leave things mod. You can change both the bone and the membrane color.

Goth1c0 released this beautiful dress at a new monthly event called Illusion Point. I love the way the straps crisscross. You can’t see it here, but the back is absolutely lovely.  Goth1c0 walks the fine line between elegant and provocative without stumbling.

The Epiphany closes tomorrow, boggettes. So, you need to skip your cute mesh bum over there and snatch up this beautiful rare staff from May’s Soul. The detailing on it is really quite remarkable. Also, don’t forget to redeem your items for points. Only 100 points will roll over to next round, be sure to trade in any extra.

Also! (So much going on) Totally Top Shelf is now open. I popped over there and snatched up this really lovely necklace from Secret Love. They are a smaller newer store but have really delicate and lovely things. The necklace comes with a color hud to change both the drops and the gems on the necklace. It is really pretty, and you should stop by her store as well to see what other beautiful things she offers. DirtyStores also released this very detailed and macabre headpiece at TTS. It also has a color hud. All these options make me a very happy shopper.

…and new poses from Grafica at their mainstore location. Yay!

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.

Solitude – Mizu and We Love Roleplay

I took this picture a few weeks ago. I apologize for my delay in posting. I’ve been really low and have been finding it difficult to find the energy and the desire to do much of anything. An upswing is certainly on the way, though. I do miss mah lil bloglings!

Solitude - Mizu and We Love Roleplay
Solitude – Mizu and We Love Roleplay

Mizu is this lovely event that recently opened. Not only are there beautiful things there to purchase, but there is a storyline to follow. Put on the HUD and experience the story; it is lovely. All the details and the LM are on Mizu‘s website (in both Japanese and English). While there, I grabbed this lovely kimono by Silvery K and a few deco items. The kimoni is really beautifully made.

Also, still going is the June round of We Love Roleplay. Tableau Vivant made lovely hair, as usual. It is long and chunky; she calls them faux dreads. These pavers from Stormwood are also being released this month. They are beautifully textured, come with different configurations and each has a grass version (which I love).
