She walks in magic. – New Plastik and Swallow

Magic crackled around her in a soft hum. You could hear it, if you stepped closely enough. I wondered if she constantly heard that sound and felt the tingle along her skin. Or maybe it is like knowing your toes are at the ends of your feet and fingers are on your hands. You know they are there, but you are not constantly made aware of their existence.

Many people thought she was merely an enchantress, beguiling men with the curves of her body, but they were small minded and knew nothing of the nature of magicks. Others thought she obtained her magic from the crystals which hung from her ears, clothes, and a large one embedded in her wand, but this is not the case. Truth be told, the Elven sorceress just liked pretty things. No, her magic came from the pit of her belly and the thrum of her heart. It coursed along the surface of her skin and intertwined itself in the tendrils of her hair, and she could pull it and tug it until it grew in the palm of her hand. It was a physical manifestation of her wisdom and compassion.

Hello, Bloglings! So, this post is a little late because my week has been insane. My phone broke, my modem died, and my car broke down. Fun! But that doesn’t mean you should miss out on this beautiful wand/staff from Plastik at Crystal Heart. It comes with both handle sizes so it will work as either a wand or a staff, with different built in poses, and a HUD to color match until your heart is content. And while you’re out shopping for beautiful, fantastical things, stop by Kustom9 and pick up these new ears from Swallow.

She walked in magic.

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!

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.

Tranquility – We Love Roleplay November

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.

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!
