Opulent Tastes – We Love Roleplay and Enchantment

112016-03-edit-1

Hello, my lil bloglings! Just wanted to show you some more beautiful things from WLRP and Enchantment. This hair from Letituier is really beautiful; the cage around the buns is so intricate. While I was Enchantment snatching up the hair, I picked up the necklace which comes with a lovely tiara from Modern Couture. And don’t forget about this round of WLRP that is still going, Clef de Peau has this top out which is fitted and looks stunning. And, of course, these bloody lipped appliers from Glam Affair are done as beautifully as all their skins.

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?

Who needs Kansas anyway? – More Enchantment

“If we walk far enough,” says Dorothy, “we shall sometime come to someplace.”

081416-02 (Edit 1).png

Bloggettes! Enchantment is still open, of course. So, stop on by and snatch up some really adorable fantasy Oz inspired items. Here is my sexay Dorothy in an outfit by The Annex which is super cute and come a few different colors. The Lolipop on the ground also has a bow on it (which I made invisible for the photo) and a pose for standing. It is extra cute, so make sure you pick up one of those. These shoes are by Lotus, a brand that is new to me, and have a color change hud for the sole, bows, and socks. And don’t forget this limited edition Dorothy skin by DeeTaleZ and the adorable piggies by Runaway. Get all the things!

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.

Fairy Whispers – Enchantment Final Days

 This is a work of fiction. All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence. Or lack thereof. ~Neil Gaiman

052916-03 (Edit 1).png

Hello, bloglings! Another round of Enchantment is about to close. Even if you’re completely empty on Linden, stop by and enjoy the lovely decor. It is beautifully decorated and themed around Thumbelina. It is adorable. But if you’re there, you might as well pick up this adorable flower dress from Dead Dollz, perfect for your new fae avatar. I know you already have a fae avatar, but one cannot have too many (trust me on this). Cubic Cherry also has this adorable Flower Umbrella, I made it small so my fae is just holding a large flower, but it is so cutes.

And since you’re now on a shopping spree, you might as well stop by The Fantasy Collective for these en pointe ballet heels by Chica Chica. They’re perfect. ❤

The Beckoning. – Enchantment, Ultra, Secret Affair, Uber, Collabor88, Fantasy Collective

She could feel it rising behind her, its gravitational force shifting the weight of the cool, damp air around her. These tiny shifts felt as if they crackled along the surface of her dark skin. That skin which was dark as the night which shrouded her during the beginnings of her ritual. As First Sorcerer, the ritual was her responsibility and, therefore, her burden.

Throughout the night, she moved with the gravitational forces, tugged at them, beckoning them to come forward. She sauntered and dipped, staffs twirling about her, glowing like night larks. It was surprising how fluidly she moved, considering the ornate ceremonial wings which hung heavily from her back. But she did not seem burdened by them as continued the ritual for hours, her power drawing the planetary body up behind her, forcing worlds to move, governing the heavenly bodies as if she were a god.

052616-06 (Edit 3)

Bloglings, in case you haven’t heard, yet (why haven’t you been reading my blog?!), Enchantment closes on the 31st. So, get your pixel booties over there because these wings from Glitzz are absolutely gorgeous. They are delicate and ornate and extremely versatile with a color change HUD. Clearly, you need to pop on over so you can be the fairy princess unicorn you’ve always dreamed of being. Collabor88 is also closing, so stop on by and pick up this bikini from Fashionably Dead (who are now doing mesh body fits!).

While some good things are coming to a lovely end, new beautiful things open to fill the void in our inventory and delightfully consumerist hearts which replace love with things pretty things. So, don’t forge to stop by the new round of Uber where you will find this floral motif tattoo in metallic tones from Uber. It looks amazing against dark skin tones. Also, there is this very functional and and simple maxi skirt from Just Because. I’m certain I’ll be wearing it often. Then at the Fantasy Collective, I snapped up this gorgeous collar from Aisling. I just wish I could get everything they make delivered to my inventory directly.

052716-03 (Edit 2)

Because I love options and the ability to change my mind at ridiculous rates without reaping the consequences out on my Linden balance, I am going to show you the many options you get with the Glitzz wings and Aisling collar. Their HUDs:

Encounter with a Night Fae

I had never seen one of her kind before. Night fae hid from light, and we humans gather around it like insects begging for warmth and salvation. So, when I stumbled upon her in the forest which stretched out from the backdoor of my own home, I was startled. I did not know they settled so closely to my home. And in the depths of the darkness that closed around the whole forest, I distrusted my very own eyes. Even I know that human eyes are fickle things, only capable of seeing what they wish to see.

Her skin looked like the thick smoke that billowed from chimneys above the cabins in our town, simultaneously dark and luminous, as it hung placid in the winter air. Translucent wings twitched, luminescence glowing from within and casting a strange aura around her cinereous skin.

Eyes, undaunted by my sudden appearance in the dark landscape, looked towards me. It felt as if they sought me out, grasped at the edges of my soul to determine my virtue, or lack thereof. I do not know if her eyes emanated the same glow which cast itself about from her wings, or if it was a reflection of the magic which she contained in the palm of her hand. The magic remained steady, lighting up her face which seems soft and kind but somehow distant, even as she stared at me with those cerulean eyes which tugged at my thoughts. Her mere gaze felt like an invasion, but it was difficult to concentrate as the glow of magic in her palm grew, pulsing and oscillating. It drew me in, captured me as I stood transfixed before the beautiful, delicate creature.

Bloglings! How I have missed you! A couple weeks ago, Muse was finally returned to me. The account was fixed. Linden Labs told me that she had an inventory bug, but it has now been resolved. It is a bit strange how accustomed and comfortable one becomes with a chosen identity. And it was so bizarre not having her around. I have spent the last couple weeks getting reacquainted with her inventory. I don’t remember all the new things I had purchased or where I had left off. I have also been really attempting to purge things. My inventory went from 130K to 93K, I would like to get lower and will be working on that.

So, while doing that, I updated my drow fairy. Nothing in this photo is particularly new, but they are things I love, and I just wanted to take a quick snap of the avatar.

050216-02 (Edit 1)

The skin here is from Alterego. They make some of my favorite fantasy skins right now. If you’re interested, please demo the skins. The faces are much lighter than the body and this can look a bit strange, if you aren’t accustomed to it. This is how the skins were intended, they blend together beautifully from the body to the head.

The wings are from Amalgamation and are some of my favorite fae wings. I may be biased because my best friends created them, but they are beautiful and come with so many options, including animations.I wanted to show a quick gif of them here, since I haven’t done that before. The animation is a bit quicker in world, was lagging a bit due to the recording.

Can you keep a secret? – The Fantasy Collective

I shall know you, secrets

by the litter you have left

and by your bloody footprints.

– Lola Ridge, “Secrets”

092215-01 (Edit 2)

Bloglings, this post is long in coming and I apologize for how long it has taken me. Honestly, some things have happened in RL, that have really drained me lately. It is difficult for me to find inspiration (though not impossible). I struggle with the ability to focus on anything long enough to actually accomplish any task lately. Some things are just really difficult for me right now. So, I quit my blogger groups for the moment. I need to gather myself together. I will continue blogging, but it may be intermittent. I still have stories to tell, they just may take more time to be born.

Wanderer – We Love Roleplay

She could feel the change of the seasons in the air that surrounded her. The air still held that serotinal warmth, but it drifted along the surface of her skin with a crispness that had not been there the preceding week. It was an indication that she must find a place to settle soon. The idea made her itch. The simple idea of settling for a few months in a single place made her feel trapped. What a boring, stagnant life. What were lasting and loving relationships to others were monotony and risk to her. The comfort of familiarity to other people was tedious repetition.

Wanderer - We Love Roleplay
Wanderer – Taken at Frisland

This post is brought to you by serendipity, my lil bloglings. We Love Roleplay is open and wonderful. Coincidentally (or serendipitously) The Skinnery released this lovely faun skin with appliers for Lelutka. It is beautifully detailed. During this same round Doe released this ridiculously adorable hair tangled in antlers. But that is not all, blogettes. Gauze just recently updated their faun legs with appliers for mesh bodies. The stars have aligned, and we all need faun avatars now.

Wanderer - We Love Roleplay

Also released at We Love Roleplay this round is this underbust corset/bodysuit thingy. I don’t know what to call it except lovely. It is beautifully details and though it is rigged and not fitted mesh, I was able to get it to fit my Maitreya body quite nicely.

Sweet dreams – Collabor88 Birthday Round

She had such terrible night terrors as a young girl. When sleep should have been a safe retreat from the dangers of the world, it just became another thing to fear. She would lie in bed, pricking her arm and the tips of her fingers with a needle to keep herself awake. Tiny droplets of blood stained her pillowcase and sheets. Inevitably, sleep would come. It came and took her in, refusing to let her elude its terrifying grasp as it forced her into another world even more terrifying than the actual one.

It started as a game, she asked others about their dreams-friends, family, even stragers at the playground or the store. It drove her mother mad. Her mother would try to hush her and would giggle awkwardly when she asked the store clerk, “What do you dream about when you sleep?” in a curiously soft and shy tone. But they always told her; they didn’t mind indulging the young girl.

As she grew older, she learned. She would lie in bed at night and before sleep could take her she would jump. Eyes closed, she recreated other people’s dreams in her own mind, and she could jump into their dreams. She could experience their lovely worlds because she was not capable of creating her own world without horror.
Sweet dreams.
So, Collabor88 is amazing this round as I’m sure you know bloglings. There are so many lovely things. I love all the decor items, of which I was only able to present a few here. They are lovely and perfect for my parcel Strange (but I have so few prims left 😦 ) This windswept dress is absolutely beautiful by Moon Amore. Although, it is more suited for photography than wearing in world because of the static nature of mesh. Although, there is an addon, which makes for the dramatic tail of butterflies, so it is still conceivable to wear in world without being completely ridiculous. I often wear their Helena dress in world (seen here in a previous post), which has the same affect. I absolutely love the delicate lace and detailing on this dress, so you will probably catch me traipsing about in world in it as well.

Breathe also released these beautiful butterfly heels in world. I don’t tend to wear a lot of shoes, but I love the cute twist on the classic pump.
