Ravaged. – We Love Roleplay and Festival of Sin

A soft cry emerged from deep in her throat as she lifted the bone structure of her wings. Each movement was drenched in agony, but she was surprisingly steady. She could feel the cool night air along the exposed nerves, alighting shards of pain that caused her body to tremble faintly. Torn muscles and tendons lamented the need for movement as the bones slowly rose higher and higher around her. Blood ran in tiny trails along the bones and dried along the edges or dripped off the tiny bits of flesh that remained.

Reluctantly she opened her eyes and looked out at the water in despair. The water reflected the deep darkness of the night sky, making the vista an interminable view of tenebrous light. Eyes lowered to the water before her so she could consume her reflection along the mirrored surface. A deep breath lifted her hunched shoulders momentarily as if she were breathing in the horror at the sight of herself in the water.

She wanted so desperately to be filled with the same anger that incited them to do this to her. She wanted to feel the wrath well up from inside and consumer her like the ravenous beast they claimed she was. She wanted to feel it pulse in her temples and drive her muscles. But she felt nothing, nothing but exhaustion, a deep fatigue that weighted along every limb of her body.

Ravaged

So, this gorgeous gown was released at We Love Roleplay by Valentina E. It now comes with a fitted version for Maitreya, but the straps still don’t have the greatest fit. I don’t care. The gown is still freakin’ gorgeous, as usual from V.e.  Also, these amazing wings from Jian were released at Festival of Sin. They are absolutely beautifully grotesque. The wings come mod, but cannot be sized down in one piece. These are the size they came and are quite large, so be aware of that when purchasing them.

Professor Wiltshire and his wife, the engineer. – We Love Roleplay and The Mix Event

By all appearances, they shouldn’t have been together.

His English was painstakingly proper. Each syllable was enunciated distinctly, and that precision came with a strange ease of comfort from familiarity. This same precision and comfort repeated itself in every aspect of his life. His movements, the manner of his dress, the way he ate a meal – all followed the manner of his speech – that odd combination of exactitude conjoined with ease from a lifetime of presenting himself this way. His words and his movements were moderated and slow.

But her words were broken. Sentences flittered out of her mouth rife with slang and words contracted and shortened with a quick tongue. Often her sentences were punctuated with giggles or a word that made the professor blush. She also blushed, but not at the profanities that escaped her lips when frustrated with another machine that refused to do as she commanded. She carried a wrench like a sceptre and dared her machines to disobey her orders. And they did dare. It was their daring which showed in long rivulets of oil that dripped down her legs and arms. It was their daring which splattered across her face and caught in her hair in clumps. Her movements also emulated her speech – quick, angular, and often incomplete.

To be sure, they were a strange combination, but they leaned into each other. Their styles complemented each other, made them an efficient and rigorous combination, which reflected in their work life, but also their private life. Their intimacy was one of respect, an understanding that each brought something the other needed.

Professor Wiltshire and his wife, the engineer.    A very dear friend of mine from a small store called Amalgamation created some steampunk goggles that are rich in detail, and he needed some photos. Thus, a steampunk post was borne. Yes, thus! xD

I love decorating with books and scattering them around my parcel. So, I was pretty ecsatic about the Literati set released by Stormwind at WLRP this round. There are many different configurations of stacks and piles, and vertical groups and single pieces. And each of these configurations is texture changeable with the HUD.

Also released at WLRP, is this incredibly detailed stimstick by NOMAD. Each color comes with two versions. One version has the steampunkish cogs, the other is a bit simpler in design.

The Mix also started a new round. The Mix is an event where you pick up a HUD and it lists all the stores that are participating that round. Each store is color coded to show if it has a sale item, a new release, or an exclusive item. Valentina E released an exclusive color of this Hand Me Down Ballet Dress. More details for The Mix and how to get the HUD are here.

She balanced the weight of the world so gracefully no one noticed.

Hello, bloglings! I am back after a short break. I didn’t leave you with nothing, though. I left a few updates on my Flickr, annotated and everything. I’m coming back to show you some new items from Uber. This round’s theme is ‘celestial’ and I absolutely love it.

Balance.

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!

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

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:

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

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.
