Autumnal Fae – Plastik Gacha

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus

Autumnal Fae

Hello bloglings! This gacha set was released by Plastik at Whimsical in August. I haven’t been able to blog it until now, but it is so beautiful. You can now drop by their main store to see it. There are so many pieces in the set for you to win and mix and match. Also, these ethereal bento fairy wings are perfect. Here is the gacha key for you to peruse the wide assortment of prizes.

Experience is sexy. – A&Y @ Romp

She was sexy. It wasn’t difficult to fit these physical criteria. I remember tales of when people were forced to live and be judged by the lottery of birth and appearance from centuries back. What a strange world that must have been. But we reconfigure ourselves regularly, given money and access. So, we are forced to live and be judged by the lottery of power and wealth.

Experience is sexy.

A&Y released this beautiful latex, cyberpunk corset at ROMP this round. It comes with all their usual color tinting, glow effects changing HUD. they also released this cyberpunk ballet boots at Fetish Fair.

Now, I admit, I love cyberpunk and scifi things. I watch tons of Dr. Who and Star Trek. SciFi has this ability of questioning modern conventions in a popular way long before other media outlets are capable of doing so. However, there are, in SciFi, some troubling and problematic tropes. Even though I love movies like The Fifth Element, it is trope which really exemplifies a lot of social issues. If you are interested in a really thorough and nuanced discussion of this, this video is excellent:

From the depths. – We Love Roleplay, FGC, and Rewind

“She is a mermaid, but approach her with caution. Her mind swims at a depth most would drown in.”

From the depths.

Hello, Bloglings! A new round of We Love Roleplay is upon us (and has been since the fourth). Zibska is one of my favorite make up creators. She creates these beautiful, bright colors and dramatic makeups that are perfect for powerful looks. Also, at this round are some really lovely eyes from Gauze and this beautiful body chain by sYs, which comes for allthefuckinbodies (Maitreya, all three Bellezas, TMP, and both SLinks) and even an unrigged version. So, go snap it up because you can never have to many chains to dangle delightfully across your delicates.

While you’re out shopping, you might as well pop on over to Rewind, because this amazing bra? …um… pasty? erm…boob cling! is there. It comes in a variety of colors, but it is only for you Maitreya gals.

Then just take a quick TP to Fantasy Gacha Carnival, because you know there is nothing more rewarding than trowing Lindens away on shit you don’t want on the off chance you might get something you do want…like this fucking amazing hair.

The Emergence of Spring. – We Love Roleplay and Collabor88

When her bare feet touch the ground, it thaws. The snow and ice melt away and the earth becomes warm again. When she speaks, the flowers listen. They hear the melodic whispers and sprout forth from the freshly warmed earth, peeking upwards to better hear her ancient words. When she sings the archaic hymns, the birds come back home guided by the soft, strained notes after months of silence and solitude. Eostre has risen, and it is Spring.

The Emergence of Spring.

Hello, bloglings! One of my favorite events just started a new round less than a week ago. Naminoke made these beautiful flowering devil horns for We Love Roleplay. They always make the prettiest, delicate flowery things.

Moon Amore made this really beautiful lace dress that is sheer and may not cover your lady cupcake (in case that is a concern for you) for Collabor88. It comes it both a wind blown version and a regular version, which I love. If you choose to go with the fatpack, you can change the colors of all the pieces.

Curious Sprite.

Also, at We Love Roleplay is this absolutely gorgeous skin by YS&YS. I’m completely enamored with it and the number of options on the HUD. If you are looking for a really pale fantasy skin, this is really perfect. If you zoom in on the image, you can see the fine vein lines on her face on the option that I chose. Seriously. I know Skin Fair is happening, but you need this one, too.

The sky is a long and lonely path. – We Love Roleplay Returns

The vast sky and sea melded together around them, becoming an infinite expanse of nothingness. Which was probably what that damned philosopher was reading about – the meaning of nothingness or some other nonsense. He was always spouting off some abstract theories that certainly weren’t going to get them into port before their food stores diminished into …well, nothingness. She sighed heavily, a warm rush of exasperated air forced passed frustrated lips. Of course, he didn’t notice. He only noticed the words on the pages which he slowly flipped with a flippant flick of his finger. Tugging deftly on a rope to navigate their direction through the sky, she sighed again. She knew, of course, that she would be the one that must bring them into port, find them supplies, and figure a way to barter for the goods. And as much as she wanted to hate him for his abstract theories and his blatant disregard for the corporeal world, she knew she loved him for it.

The sky is a long and lonely path.

Hello, bloglings! We Love Roleplay opened itself to the public once again yesterday, bringing you some great new fantasy gear. This round has a few really lovely steampunk pieces. Since it is really difficult to find steampunk gear in SL, I really wanted to show them off for you.
Through the lens of a different future.

Above is this beautiful monocle made by EMO-tions. I hope you can really see in the closeup portrait just how detailed it is. All those beautifully useless gears make me wonder what that monocle can actually do. It is purely superficial, just like everything else in SL, but absolutely beautiful.  ❤

Also at this round of WLRP is this corset by DE Designs. I love the clasp details and the tiny pocket to hide away ornate keys to hidden treasures. It also comes for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya, SLink Physique and Hourglass, and Tonic Curvy and Fine.

This is a guest post on the Mesh Body Addicts blog. Please see the credits here.

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.”

0303017-09 (Edit 3).png

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. ❤

Successor – We Love Roleplay and Gacha Garden

New worlds are birthed by successors and heirs. Sometimes, they are full of promise and beauty. Other times, they are bleak and ominous.

020417-12 (Edit 2).png

Hello, bloglings! This round of We Love Roleplay promises to be beautiful. Enfant Terrible is back with a gorgeous gown. The draped sash is a separate piece and the dress can be worth with or without it. There is a color change HUD for changing the colors of the leather harness and the drape. It is so well detailed and beautiful for both Maitreya and SLink Hourglass.

In the background of the photo, I used the pretty new stone stairs from Mushilu, which is another new release at WLRP. There are q few pieces included in the set, for you to beautify your parcel/sim.

To be a unicorn – The Arcade is coming!

“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.” – Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

112916-01 (Edit 2).png

Bloglings, the Arcade is coming and with it your ability to frolic around in fields as a unicorn. Thanks to Swallow for these beautiful horns they are releasing at the opening on the first of December.

Currently, there is also a really nice fundraising event going on called #UnitedAndKind, which is actually supporting four different but very important charities. You can read more about the fundraiser and the charities it is supporting here. At the site there are also some really amazing people going up for auction. So, bid, bid bid…it is all for four very good causes. ❤

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. 🙂

081316-05 (Edit 1).png

At the event aisling is releasing this crown and scepter set, in both a light and dark for either good or bad witches. And of course no Oz event would be complete with a yellow brick road.
