The Morrigan – We Love Roleplay and Chapter 4

The austerity of her facial features, the hardness of its lines, and cruelty of her stark brows were, in a strange way,  tempered by her ease of movement. A skirt slung loosely around slim hips which swayed around her feet and whispered softly against the ground. Even the solid steal flail hung precariously across delicate shoulders swung at her side as if it were a delicate glass bauble not an instrument of harsh brutality. Dark wings hung behind her; the glossy, inky feathers matched the raven which perched on the handle of her flail.

A softness resonated in her eyes, contradicting the harshness of her cheekbones and jawline. Those eyes burned with a warmth of compassion and understanding that her victims did not expect. When she passed over battlefields to choose those to take and those to leave behind, when people wounded and weary from battle, gazed about and saw her face, they did not expect the depth of compassion and concern in her eyes. And when they begged her for more days, more days to struggle for causes in which they believed, more days to win victoriously against their foe, more days to be able to march home with their fellow warriors, they did not expect to see tears gather at the corner of those vermilion eyes, and run in rivulets along her cheeks. But her task was not one she chose, and the powers and balance of life and death was not something within her grasp. She was but a servant, a minion, to forces much greater than she. It was a burden which rested heavily along her shoulders and deep inside of her heart. It was a burden which seemed much too heavy for someone of her slight build, but which she carried with an unexpected ease.

Hello, bloglings! WLRP is still open and sYs released this beautiful feather collar which is fitted for mesh bodies. They also have a matching, high-waisted,  feathered miniskirt, which I am not wearing. It comes in two cloth versions black and brown, and each comes with a  HUD for changing the texture on the feathers. Chapter 4 also opened earlier this month and with it Storybook released this perfect skirt. I have a love for floor length, bohemian skirt. This one is perfect. For me, it is where is rests along the hips that is EVERYTHING and this one is slung just low enough. So, if you passed over this simple but versatile piece, go back. Go back, now.

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

My first Triple Play was in September and I thought it would only be a LOTD that happened to feature three looks, but just recently I did another one and now I’m going to do it again. I think this is going to be a new category for two reasons: mostly because I enjoy it but equally important is because it exemplifies how versatile specific pieces are and, therefore, how useful they can be. When this happens, maybe you are more likely to see them on your own avatar rather than see them on my avatar all the time, which is really the point, isn’t it (I mean other than the beautiful pictures, which I’m getting to!)?

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

I have no idea what inspired this look. It is inexplicable, but wandering around FaMESHeD and l’accessoires must have been good for me because it resulted in this. Besides, who could resist this new hair from Taketomi?

Style Notes: The leather mini from FANATIK comes in an array of colors from pastels to the dark brown I’m wearing here. You’ll notice on the red one that Musey wears in the last photo that the stitching detail is just divine. It is these small, unnecessary but complimentary details that really make a product stand out. Furthermore, these heels from FANATIK come with a HUD to color change the studs from gold to silver and back again as many times as your (or my) indecisive heart desires (how did they get that many spikes on one shoe?!).

Also, this new hat is from l’accessoires. Get the fatpack. I’m not encouraging you this time; I’m demanding it. The fatpack is 800L and each single hat is 200L. The fatpack contains 8 hats. 8! You do the math on those freshly manicured hands of yours and get back to me on whether or not you bought the fatpack. 🙂

One more thing before we get on to the next picture (which I know is what you are really waiting for). This jacket by Valentina E. is lovely, yes, obviously but also sold separately is a dress which is just as lovely. Take a look. They’re both sold at FaMESHed (hurry before the next round sneaks up on you); they look great together.

Onward!

Do not be appalled at my fashion judgement! Do not judge me! But…this jacket is not mesh, it is three prim pieces. I know what you’re thinking. I can see it in your eyes and tense lines around your lips but I have three excuses: it matches perfectly, it is cute, aaaaand it was only 100L.  XD

Style Notes: These shoes by JD are amazing. I know, I’ve blogged them before, but just in case you didn’t catch that post (I know you sit and wait at home refreshing my page for hours hoping for a new post but that is beside the point), these shoes come in a few fat packs and each fatpack comes with a HUD so you can change the color details on them. Also, you can remove the flower detail if you so desire. Oh, poor indecisive me.

Et nombre trois:

Finally, a cardigan. The staple of every wardrobe. In real life I love a cardigan–it is like comfort with buttons (so you don’t look too sloppy).  So, there is no reason not to love these cardigans from TokiD considering how well they’re made. Don’t look at me like that. I know they’ve been around for ages. Can’t I gush over something that I like even if it is old? Sheesh.

Actually, nothing in this outfit is particularly new (except the shoes which come from the new round of Zodiac). It is just a new spin on some old things in my closet. I like the idea of taking a leather mini skirt and tube top (items usually reserved for the club life) and making them casual and sweet.
