From the Dark – WLRP is Back! Epiphany is ending! And Illusion Point.

The bones of her wings spread, lifting towards the dark sky. The thick, dark membrane lined with muscle moved the hollow bones with ease and scooped up the humid air that surrounded her. One may not even notice the little necromancer if it weren’t for her wings. She was tiny but those dark, boned wings were broad and spanned out around her, creating a dark canvas for her pale skin.

She giggled as she skipped around a few crumbling gravestones and then irreverently sat atop one. Ancient words whispered from her lips with an impish smile and a deft hand flourish. At the sweet sound of her voice and the dark incantation, came a cacophony of groans and murmurs. The dead, angry for the interruption to their sleep, continued the dissonant symphony as they crawled from their resting places to meet their new mistress.
From the dark.

Blloglings! We Love RP is back and better than ever for the August round. Our favorite shopping event now has its own sim! It opens tomorrow and with the opening Souzou Eien is releasing these beautifully dark wings. They come with a color HUD and are still modifiable. I love when designers leave things mod. You can change both the bone and the membrane color.

Goth1c0 released this beautiful dress at a new monthly event called Illusion Point. I love the way the straps crisscross. You can’t see it here, but the back is absolutely lovely.  Goth1c0 walks the fine line between elegant and provocative without stumbling.

The Epiphany closes tomorrow, boggettes. So, you need to skip your cute mesh bum over there and snatch up this beautiful rare staff from May’s Soul. The detailing on it is really quite remarkable. Also, don’t forget to redeem your items for points. Only 100 points will roll over to next round, be sure to trade in any extra.

Also! (So much going on) Totally Top Shelf is now open. I popped over there and snatched up this really lovely necklace from Secret Love. They are a smaller newer store but have really delicate and lovely things. The necklace comes with a color hud to change both the drops and the gems on the necklace. It is really pretty, and you should stop by her store as well to see what other beautiful things she offers. DirtyStores also released this very detailed and macabre headpiece at TTS. It also has a color hud. All these options make me a very happy shopper.

…and new poses from Grafica at their mainstore location. Yay!

The Witch – More We Love RP, Fantasy Gacha Carnival, and The Dressing Room Fusion

She was very good at discovering what people needed. They always had needs – love, ambition, wealth. She didn’t even search them out, they came to her. The poor, desperate souls came begging. They usually clutched tiny coin purses filled with the currency of men, trite ramblings filled the air around them as they hoped for pity. But her face was not one that reflected pity or empathy. She was, afterall, a businesswoman but she did not deal in gold or coins that promised something from a government she did not recognize. No, she required something far more valuable. it was strange that the humans themselves did not value it.

Cold, apathetic eyes glanced over at the dark stone figure as she finished casting. The sky had grown dark. Even the earth understood the deeds of this woman, yet, human greed and desire always overcame their ability to reason.

Bloggettes! So many wonderful events are happening right now, it is difficult to keep up with all of them. Of course, the anniversary round of We Love Roleplay (WLRP) is still going. At the event aisling is releasing this beautiful dress called hierophant. It comes with a HUD to color change different parts of it and is very well details (aisling always is).

Most of these decor items were from gachas at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival (FGC). The themes this round are goth, demon, elf, black caste, and urt. There are ons of dark decor items that are really beautifully made. This round ends June 5th, so don’t forget to stop over by then.

I always like to pop over to The Dressing Room Fusion (TDRF) to see if there are some discount items I can snatch up for my alt; she lives on a budget. When I was there, I found this lovely lace collar from Scrub. The horned hood actually comes with a high collar, but I really liked the lace detailing on this one.

The Secret Affair has also begun and is where I found these cuffs by Kibitz. They’re simple and well textured. Sometimes, that is all you need.

Also released at We ♥ RP was this cap and horns by Meva. It is perfectly villainous and fits the Lelutka head very snugly.

In case you didn’t know, The Fantasy Collective is also open.

The voyeur. – Collabor88 and Dark Style Fair

She fluttered her wings restlessly as she heaved a sigh, looking down over the edge of the cloud. The flicker birds played around her, swooping and chasing each other. They flashed their tiny flames through the fog of the early morning light. Absentmindedly, she motioned towards them to calm down. But it was a wasted gesture, as flicker birds do not listen, not to fae, not even to gods. Annoyed, another sigh snuck through her lips as her eyes remained on the ground far below.

“Silly humans,” she thought with a giggle. Her laughter tinkled like a wind chime and tickled the bellies of the flicker birds. The birds continued their acrobatics in the air with each other, but with more vigor. She shook her head in disbelief, another round of giggles freeing itself from her belly. “Oh, The stories they tell down there! Do they really believe such things?” With a deft motion of her wrist, she closed the gap in the cloud beneath her, hiding the world below from her view. “Humans really do believe the silliest of things,” she laughed again, at no one in particular. “Science, they call it,” she said with a final shake of her head.

The Fairy Voyeur - Dark Style Fair and Collabor88

So many lovely things at Colalbor88 this round. If you love pastels, then stop reading and teleport over there right now! Also,t here are actually two things from the Dark Style Fair in this post. I know it is difficult to believe. 🙂

Legends are lies masking truths.

Fairy tales and legends are often told as stories which present truths or morals of a sort. They provide lessons to be learned, we are told.

The story of Little Red Ridinghood presents interesting morals. It preaches that we should obey our parents. Red is to stay on the path as her grandmother advised. However, it is this oversimplification of moral tenets that is usually problematic. Not only do we want to instill in children (and in people) that you should follow good advice and listen to those who have more experience or knowledge than you in a particular field, but conversely we also want people to follow their own path, create their own destiny, and learn to think independently. It is the strange gray line between these two goals that is difficult to navigate, and the story provides no moral guidance in this difficult gray area.

Not only does the story provide little practical moral advice, but it could actually instill xenophobia. There is a contrast in the story of the safety of the village where Red’s grandmother is or from whence Red comes and the dangers of the forest. We imagine a dark and frightening forest (it is a German tale, afterall). Not only is the dark unknown forest dangerous but so is the stranger to whom Red speaks. Teaching “stranger danger” to children is very common. Although, interestingly enough most of the horrors that children endure are not from strangers but from family, friends, and others in the child’s community.

The oversimplificaiton of moral tenets may actually do more harm than good. It is important to understand that morality/ethics is a complicated field and thinking about our actions and reflecting upon the right decision is much more important than strict adherence to any particular rule–because this is how people actually live and must live ethically in a complicated world.

Luckily for you this tangent and this photo were brought to you by the coinciding of two events serendipitously. The first is this lovely hooded gown by Junbug, which is just as beautiful as everything else that Juno Mantel creates for us. The dress is at Fantasy Faire right now in an RFL vendor, which means part of the proceeds are donated to Relay for Life. Fantasy Faire ends tonight at midnight SLT, so be sure to hop, skip, or dance over there wantonly and show your support for both Juno and RFL before it closes. The other event was my good friend Freddiiee purchasing this Niramyth wolfkin avatar. Now when I have a riding hood dress sitting in my inventory and my friend excitedly comes to me to show me their new werewolf avatar, there is really only one thing a girl like me can do. Take fairy tale photos!

Along with the beautiful gown from Junbug, Muse has lovely flowers adorning her wrist from Naminoke. These flowers are being released tomorrow at the opening of the May round of We Love Roleplay. This is their 2rd year anniversary, which means tons of wonderful things are being released. Don’t forget to stop by this month and wish them a happy anniversary by emptying out your coin purse!

The ritual.

I’m not exactly sure how this post came about. It is quite a bit darker than what I generally prefer. It began with this lovely purple Soul skin and Even Tide dragon scales. It is the first time I have used a Soul skin before and it is really very lovely. Generaly, I don’t use many fantasy colored skins. I tend to use realistic tones or very pale tones, and periodically a drow tone. However, this Soul skin was well done and pairs lovely with the dragon scales. The skin is also a nice even tone, creating the perfect template for a few contrasting makeups.

Apparently, it is a new month for skins for me. I change my skins constantly but often use the same designers. However, this month at We Love Roleplay, Mudskin also released this lovely soft skin. She is so sweet that I decided Piggy (my alt) needed it.

Fantasy Faire is lovely and We ♥ RP is still going strong. So, if you need some new fantasy items, you know where to shop, bloglings.

This skin by Soul and the scales by EvenTide are just a couple things you should pick up.  (Click on photos to visit my flickr.)

Apparently, it is a new month for skins for me. I change my skins constantly but often use the same designers. However, this month at We Love Roleplay, Mudskin also released this lovely soft skin. She is so sweet that I decided Piggy (my alt) needed it. So hurry quickly before We ♥ RP closes to get this skin at a discount!

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!
