Crown Jewels – Enchantment

And in the visitation of the winds,
Who take the ruffian billows by the top,
Curling their monstrous heads and hanging them
With deafening clamour in the slippery clouds,
That, with the hurly, death itself awakes?
Canst thou, O partial sleep, give thy repose
To the wet sea-boy in an hour so rude,
And in the calmest and most stillest night,
With all appliances and means to boot,
Deny it to a king? Then happy low, lie down!
Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.
Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.

– Shakespeare, King Henry IV

Crown Jewels

Hello again, my lil bloglings! Just a quick reminder that the Enchantment events is still going strong. The theme this round is Rapunzel – so be prepared for lots of lustrous locks and tall isolated towers. But one of my favorite things this round is this beautifully detailed crown by AvaWay. It is so intricate and regal. And while you’re there pick up this lush gown by AiSha, the texture is so rich.

You can take a glace at my other Enchantment post here.

Asteria – More We Love Roleplay

The stars sang to her. Sang to her? She didn’t know how else to describe it. Along the surface of her skin she could feel them vibrating, hear them vibrating. It was a slow, desperate dirge. The other fae felt it, too. And some nights it would fill the forest, echoing off ancient trees, thrumming deeply along the walls of their homes. It kept them awake. It overshadowed their serotinal festivities. It was a part of every intimate gathering and couldn’t be escaped even in solitude.

They knew what it meant, but they dared not speak of it. The stars were dying. This was their sad song. They were mourning their own death. Each low, desperate note that played across her skin, tugged at her. So, Asteria wept for the death of her friends. She wept for the loss of future generations. She wept until the stars themselves blessed her and marked her as one of their own children.

“He stared up at the stars: and it seemed to him then that they were dancers, stately and graceful, performing a dance almost infinite in its complexity. He imagined he could see the very faces of the stars; pale, they were, and smiling gently, as if they had spent so much time above the world, watching the scrambling and the joy and the pain of the people below them, that they could not help being amused every time another little human believed itself the center of its world, as each of us does.”
― Neil Gaiman, Stardust

I am always on the search for some dramatic makeup. I think it can really make the appearance of a fantasy character very enigmatic and striking. Some of the best makeup on the grid can be found at SlackGirl, which I am wearing in the above photo. She has appliers for so many different heads as well as system tattoo layers. So, if you aren’t familiar with her store, you should definitely wander around it for a while…you know, if you’re into that sort of thing. But if you weren’t, I can’t imagine you’d still be reading this blog post. 🙂  And just in case you are on the search for dramatic makeup, another favorite brand which I have featured before is Zibska.

As all you lil bloglings know, one of my favorite monthly events is WLRP. And this round was no disappointment. Caboodle released these beautiful silky sashes in fitted mesh for Belleze Venus, Freya, and Isis; Maitreya Lara; and SLink Hourglass and Physique. That is a lot of options! While I was traipsing around WLRP, flitting like the adorable fairy that I am (or at least was at the time), I greedily snatched up the winged headpiece by Astralia. It is beautiful. Then I promptly turned them into new fae wings. To do this, you will need a bit of editing knowledge. However, I think they’re just as lovely large and stuck to my back. 🙂

Hello Bloggettes! I haven’t been posting LpD lately, which is sad for all of us, because they’ve been putting out some really pretty dresses. Everything has just been so busy! So, here is one of their newish dresses, which is just so petal soft. Also, this skin is a beautiful freckled version of Sora by Pink Fuel at the Adore and Abhor Anniversary Event. It is only 75L, so don’t forget to stop by and snatch it up.

LotD 123: Vivid

LotD 123

Herro bloglings! So, a friend of a friend passed me over this dress just about forever ago and I’m finally getting around to blogging it because I think it is really quite lovely, don’t you agree? Now, it comes with some flexi pieces for a fuller skirt bottom but I chose to leave those off and keep the look a nice sleek pencil skirt for a daytime into night time look. It is nice and modular that way. Try it out over at Chambres des Campbell <here> on the marketplace.

Also stunning is this spiked collar by Inside Lab. The detailing is just beautiful (just don’t poke yourself blogettes!).
