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.

Professor Wiltshire

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.

Solitude – Mizu and We Love Roleplay

I took this picture a few weeks ago. I apologize for my delay in posting. I’ve been really low and have been finding it difficult to find the energy and the desire to do much of anything. An upswing is certainly on the way, though. I do miss mah lil bloglings!

Solitude - Mizu and We Love Roleplay
Solitude – Mizu and We Love Roleplay

Mizu is this lovely event that recently opened. Not only are there beautiful things there to purchase, but there is a storyline to follow. Put on the HUD and experience the story; it is lovely. All the details and the LM are on Mizu‘s website (in both Japanese and English). While there, I grabbed this lovely kimono by Silvery K and a few deco items. The kimoni is really beautifully made.

Also, still going is the June round of We Love Roleplay. Tableau Vivant made lovely hair, as usual. It is long and chunky; she calls them faux dreads. These pavers from Stormwood are also being released this month. They are beautifully textured, come with different configurations and each has a grass version (which I love).

Into the Sky – Pumec, The Forge, Zibska, Souzou Eien at We ♥ Roleplay

Into the Sky - Pumec, The Forge, and Zibska for We Love Roleplay
Into the Sky – Pumec, The Forge, and Zibska for We Love Roleplay

We Love Roleplay opened today! That means tons of new goodies for everyone! First there is this absolutely beautiful skin from Pumec. It comes with appliers for everyfuckingthing. It is crazy. I’ve never worn a Pumec skin before but their applier HUDs are full of awesome. So awesome that I needed to share them with you. This is their two HUDs, one for bodies and one for heads:

Pumec mesh body and skin appliers HUD
Pumec mesh body and skin appliers HUD

So you can see all the amazing options and the simplicity of having one HUD. Although, you probably only have one body. What is the point in having six or twenty? >.< I can’t imagine anyone who would buy that many mesh bodies….just ridiculous. *hides*

Souzou Eien also released these really adorable imp wings and horns. There is a color change HUD for the lil gems on the wings. Kawaii succubus ftw!

An ancient magic. – Anniversary round of We Love Roleplay!

The gentle tinkling of the baubles and lanterns on her staff whispered her arrival to anyone around. Not that anyone was around in the forest, except the beasts to whom she spoke. People called her a lunatic, but they did not hear the things the beasts said. Perhaps, they simply did not listen. She listened. She listened intently. She listened to the trees screaming, too. She listened to the underbrush’s quiet but anxious murmur under the canopy of the frightened old trees. She listened to the soft, warm earth groan with each step she took. She listened to the winds gossip about far away lands of which she knew nothing. “Maybe I am a lunatic,” she pondered her sanity and the sanity of others as she marked the dark surface of her skin with magical runes. “How could I not be? Who can listen to the world cry out for help in every moment and not be driven to madness?”

As she made her way through the depth of the forest, the golden dragon flies gathered around her and chittered in her ear. They heard the winds’ gossip, too. The elf could feel their fear in every nervous flutter of their delicate, filigree wings. They sheltered themselves in the magic that crackled around her, bursting from the core of her ancient power.

But the other elves were oblivious to it all. Too long had they lived away from the forest. Too long were they comforted in homes built out of the carcasses of their friends. Logs piled around them and hid them from Nature. The carcasses had become a barrier intended to protect them from Nature. The same Nature which had previously protected them for centuries. They now prefered the soft comfort of feather beds to the soft warmth of a mossy hill.They preferred drinking from wells instead of a cool, flowing brook. They preferred to grow their food in cultivated fields and raise the beasts as slaves rather than to eat what the earth provided naturally and freely. She looked down at the village of elves in disdain. To her, they were merely human now.

During this round of We ♥ Roleplay, Enfant Terrible did what they do best…lovely filigree work. Their detail is always stunning and this staff and these dragonflies are no different. It also comes with this panty and bra set with a sarong style skirt.

I am wearing and old Glam Affair drow skin. It never had Maitreya Lara appliers, so I converted the lola and phat azz appliers to omega appliers. I love the contrast of the gold makeup around the eyes. Glam Affair did release new fantasy drow skin at We Love Roleplay this month as well as applier for the Lelutka head. You may want to go give them a whirl.

The Peacemaker – Anniversary Round of We Love Roleplay!

In a flash of light, the Peacemaker arrived. Her power was forged in a treaty between two lands centuries before. They had long forgotten the treaty and long forgotten her power. It was her burden to enforce the peace treaty which was written after the soil was soaked in the blood of young men who were promised honor and glory. Young men who knew nothing of honor or glory, but knew pain and horror well. It was the peacemaker’s job to ensure that farmer’s fields were not turned into battlefields, that modest homes were not converted into infirmaries, and that young men were not turned into soldiers. Today, her power would be remembered.

We Love Roleplay has opened for a new round. This round is particularly special because it is their 2nd anniversary. There are so many goodies to snatch up. You won’t wont to miss them. Tableau Vivant released this gorgeous hair which is layered with horizontal plaiting on the back. It is really beautiful. And this dress from Moon Amore is absolutely perfect. It reminds me of She-Ra, which is pure awesomeness, bloglings!17089000229_3248a81087_o

I’ve got stories to tell. The most interesting could be yours.

I've got stories to tell.

I’m a little late, bloglings, but We ♥ RP is open! They have some lovely furniture stuffs this round by Zerkalo, aisling, and Ex Machina. The shelves by aisling and Ex Machina are beautifully detailed, and I love the clusters of candles from aisling. They come with different configurations so you can move them around at your whim (and I have many whims!).

Also! The Birdy sim is now open! We’ve waited forever and for our patience we have been given lovely group gifts. If you haven’t heard or you haven’t stopped by their sim, do it now. You may have missed some lovely items from different events and now you can pick them up. I picked up this beautiful top and skirt. I don’t know how I missed them before.

I've got stories to tell.

(Click on photos to visit my flickr and see larger images.)

And, also, if you haven’t heard the new Lelutka sim is opened. Honestly, if you haven’t heard, I’m not sure where you’ve been. But you should come out from under that rock and go to their new sim because they have three lovely mesh heads available which are made to be compatible with the Maitreya body and for which you can buy appliers from Glam Affair! I’m just going to assume I can hear the *whoosh* of the teleport right now as you’re being whisked away to try demos and get your free gifts!

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.

Bathed in light, she walks in darkness.

So bloggettes, Fantasy Gacha Carnival is still open and you simply *must* play for this Alchemy Magi outfit. It is absolutely lovely. Admittedly, there is a small weird hole on the bum, but I still absolutely love it. Try the demo to make sure it isn’t a deal breaker for you.

A moment of thought before action.

And I would be the worst blogger in existence if I didn’t mention these wings from Miamai at We ♥ RP. They are absolutely beautiful and come in silver and gold and a HUD for tons of options on each. you can also get a matching breastplate (not shown here).

Battle Fairy

I am serious, bloglings, you need these wings.
