Naked to Nothing More Than Who We Are

FG17_008

 

For today’s post, I decided to take on one of Strawberry Singh’s #SecondLifeChallenges.  I’ve been in a somewhat reflective mood since my grand grandmother passed away about a week ago and I thought this might be a good way to ponder life and get back into blogging more. If you’d like to participate too, here’s the link to Strawberry’s post with all of the details.

First a word about today’s picture. The image for this post is my Fallen Gods Inc. 2017 Gods and Goddesses Photo Contest entry, the skin being the participation prize from last’s years photo contest. My love for this look is only surpassed by my surprise and awe at the luck I had in getting this shot. Go check out all the other pretty pictures in the temple here!

Now on to the challenge… Seven facts about my SecondLife avatar or SecondLife that may not be obvious to any of you, my lovely readers.

  1. I really can not stand sl voice. Besides the fact that I despise my own voice, it seems that people who use mic tend to forget to keep people who type included in the conversation. That and the quality of mic sound in sl varies by person AND I am hearing impaired. So, I dislike sl voice immensely.
  2. I have had two sl partnerships in my four years and four months on sl. Both of which lasted over the average of four months for sl relationships. The longer of the two relationships lasted two years.
  3. I am seldom without my jerboa tail. The only time I take it off is for blog posts at times or for roleplay. For a short time I was never without wings but I always return to neko.
  4. I have only roleplayed in Game of Thrones sims. The few sims I have roleplayed on have been places my sl parents roleplayed at for Game of Thrones because I don’t like to roleplay in sims I don’t anyone and because I only wanted to roleplay Game of Thrones.
  5. My first and only mesh head is my current one, the LeLutka Bento Simone, courtesy of the fabulous Sophia Harlow.
  6. I really don’t like changing my shape and skin. It throws me off. I only do so for roleplay characters or artistic photos. I’ll change my hair frequently but not my skin or shape.
  7. I have absolutely no idea how to landscape or edit terrain in sl. Zero. I’ve never owned land where I could experiment with it.

I’ve Been An Awfully Good Girl…

been-an-awfully-good-girl_002_001

Hi everyone! I know things have been pretty quiet around here lately. I had a very bad cold for over a week then have been running around to doctor appointments and juggling multiple school projects. But I am back! And just in time for all the holiday buzz. This post is just the start of a few because I am happy to announce I will be blogging for the Cart Sale at the Wash again which runs from December 14th 2016 through January 4, 2017. So without further ado, let’s see what treats we have to play with until the Wash opens, shall we?

To start things off, I’d like to talk about this lovely throne I’m sitting on with my handsome friend. Dictatorshop created this beautifully detailed Dragon Throne with the same animations as the popular Oak Leaf Throne. If you look closely, you can see the delicate Celtic knotwork carved into the wood along with the dragon heads and clawed feet of the throne’s front legs. While this may not exactly suit the typical household décor theme, it would be excellent for roleplay sims or an older styled home. I personally love Celtic designs and dragons and have an eclectic style in my home. Included animations are Solosits, Cuddles, Kisses, Dances, and adult animations under the MaleDom and FemDom menus. Smooth and easy to adjust via the Adjust button in the menu, these animations will delight anyone who wants to feel royal.

Feel like dressing up and looking festive? Mishmash Fusion has just what the ladies need with one of their newest releases, Feeling Elvish. Shiny and soft like satin, this dress will have you dancing and singing Christmas carols in no time with all the options. It comes with five standard sizes and fitted mesh models for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. The included Hud allows you to pick between 8 color options for the top, top frill, bottom, bottom extra frill, belt, and 4 metal options for the belt buckle. Not quite happy with these choices? Use the color picker on the Hud to tint it to your heart’s content!

My shoes are also from Mishmash Fusion and are customizable just like the dress. Rockin Around Socks and Heels have several options on the Hud; 8 holiday print options for the sock, 4 color options for the sock bow, shoe, and shoe leather. These lovely kicks are available in Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Venus, Isis, & Freya, and Tonic Fine & Curvy mesh sizes. Both these shoes and the Feeling Elvish dress are in the Mishmash Fusion mainstore now, so go swipe them and be the smexiest elf at all your holiday parties.

There’s so many events going on right now, I don’t have room to gush over everything but I have linked items that are at shopping events going on right now. Will bring me fabulous finds soon!

Flesh to Blood to Bone to Love… Twisted…

29895214106_0a6536c957_o

Hello my lovelies! It seems my witchy side is persisting as we get closer to Samhain and the Day of the Dead. I seem to have acquired the gift of divination for a time. Or maybe it has something more to do with this Twisted Hunt that’s been going on all September. Haven’t heard of it? Well let me tell you a little story…

Twisted Hunt is well known as the hardest hunt in SL. Its Organizers are evil and the merchants are ebil. And no that was NOT a typo. Ebilness is reserved for the truly twisted of twisted people and fair warning, you’ll lose your mind and hair on this hunt. Merchants are allowed to use only a certain number of visible decoys but who’s to say they won’t bury a million cubes in the walls and rename their building parts? In an effort to ward of would-be cheaters, merchants are very crafty and downright wicked at times in hiding their prize cubes. So why go through all the trouble for a little cube? Because Twisted Hunt has arguably some of the best creators on the grid offering FREE prize hunt cubes. Merchants like Mishmash Fusion..

The gown and blindfold I am wearing come as a set of standard mesh sizes as the main hunt prize for this hunt at Mishmash Fusion. Spirits sending you visions of the Apocalypse? Randomly spouting prophecies worthy of the Ancient Greek oracles? You’re going to need this gown! The beautiful rich fabric will keep you warm as you scry in crystal balls by moonlight and read fortunes in animal guts. The blindfold comes in two versions, one of which is unrigged. I’m wearing the LQ version. I did have to squish my boobs into my dress but that was because I wanted to fit in a size M. Other than that, no shape modifications. Find this lovely gown before the event ends! My necklace and earrings are from Sn@tch and come with easy to use resize scripts. This hunt prize is simply lovely and is a great addition to a witch or seer’s wardrobe.

I also wanted to share the cool crystals and big stone looking thing behind me. The crystal clusters are the Twisted Hunt gift from Attitude is An Artform. These beauties are very low prim and can be linked together without making the prim count multiply like rabbits. The stone piece is carved with old Celtic symbols for the five elements; earth, fire, water, air, and spirit. When clicked, a smokey mist is emitted from the circle as spirits are called forth. Find this hunt gift at Lilith’s Den while you can. More info on the Twisted Hunt and the Merchant List with direct store teleports can be found here and below with all other links.

Also small note, I’ll be creating a page with the mesh body parts I always wear and will link it at a later date for future referencing. Have fun hunting and see you all again soon! 🙂

And Now You’re Mine


Occasionally, we all encounter people who annoy us, give us the creeps, or do something that results in causing us pain. For the past few months I’ve been healing and rediscovering myself. Part of this process has led me to meet some interesting characters and some of them, are not so great. I’ll admit, my witchy side started to take over. So, as any good girl (or is that bad?) would do, I went into my attic and wove some spells to summon a demon for a little vengeance. Hint: Check the window. Who said we can’t help Karma along?


To cast my spell, I decided to wear something to give me a bit of extra confidence. My dress is from Mishmash Fusion and comes in a great selection of colors. Diversions is mesh body friendly for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass and comes in five standard mesh sizes. Ladies, this dress is perfect for going out on the town for the night to lure unsuspecting men for some fun or for staying in and weaving witchy spells. 🙂 You won’t be disappointed! I know I couldn’t stop admiring myself and how awesome my bewbs look in the dress. Every curve is flawless. Grab a demo and check this gem out!

If you’re curious about my wings, I found them at a gacha resale on the Serenity City sim. Lots of gacha goodies can be found and empty space is swiftly replaced by new ones. Other items seen in the picture are from an old Twisted Hunt and sadly not available. I’ve marked in the credits which are from the hunt. If you’ve never done the Twisted Hunt, check the link here for info and join in on the fun as it is Twisted Season!

I hope I am able to post again soon, but with school coming up, I am not sure when I will have time. Send me good vibes and I will do my best!

Born to Be Wild at the Cart Sale

25917919826_267b8445ea_o

With the onset of spring rolling around, there’s lots of bright and happy dresses being pulled out of the closets and great sales going on. One of my favorite sales events is The Cart Sale @The Wash which offers all items for 10 lindens with the option of one item being 50L. Right now Spring Freshness is the theme of this round’s Cart Sale and there certainly is a lot of spring fever going on. I, for one, loved exploring the grittier side of the theme, which led me to get back onto my bike for a little ride around a new roleplay sim called Dark Edinburgh. Continue reading

Ice Inside Your Soul

 

And who do you think you are?/Runnin’ ’round leaving scars

Collecting your jar of hearts/And tearing love apart

You’re gonna catch a cold/From the ice inside your soul

So don’t come back for me/Who do you think you are?

Jar of Hearts, Christina Perri

I am no Cinderella, but I certainly love dressing like her. But in this gown I feel more like the Snow Queen. Beautiful and aloof. Ready to steal everyone’s attention then disappear with nothing behind except a footprint in the snow.

Cinderella would have left her glass slipper behind. Cinderella’s prince would have found it and rescued his princess with the help of her glass slipper. But me? There’s no way I would leave my lovely glass slippers from Mishmash Fusion in the snow. These lovely shoes look lightly frosted with little etches all over. A decorative spiral and curved piece on the back and small piece on the toes add a touch of fairytale magic to these whimsical heels. The strap across the front insures no loss of footwear while you dance the night away with Prince Charming. I just love these darling Slink shoes.

The gown I’m wearing is from Evie’s Closet and comes in a few other colors. I had no problems with sizes with this dress which includes several sizes. It’s elegant and formal enough for any event you might attend. I simply adore how the texturing of this gown was down to look light and airy, as if the skirt will twirl out as your dance partner spins you across the dance floor.

Around my neck I’m wearing a necklace given to me by my own Prince Charming for Christmas. This lovely locket comes with a menu to change metal color, gem type, and to play a secret message written on a notecard in the locket’s contents. As part of the Twisted Krissmuss gifts, I do not know if this will still be available after the event but Chaos, Panic, & Disorder has beautiful jewelry so I wanted to share a special piece I was given. Twisted Krissmuss ends January 11th.

I hope everyone’s new year is going well and I will try to post more regularly now that the holidays are over. Until next time lovelies. 🙂 ❤

I’m Wide Awake: More Magic from the Elven Forest Hunt

23896819995_8e1e691078_o

I’m wide awake
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
I’m wide awake
Need nothing to complete myself, no

Wide Awake, Katy Perry

We’ve reached the end of 2015 and I must admit I am not sad to see another year go. There is magic in endings and new beginnings. Life and death continue in a constant cycle that can never be undone. Unless you’re not mortal that is. Follow me into the forests of the Fae and elves. Take each step with care; the fair folk don’t take kindly to those who can’t play by the rules…

Only two days left of the Elven Forest Hunt.  I braved the maze created by the designers of =EC Designs= and managed to find all the clues to win the prize protected by the dragon at the end. If you’re feeling confident, the main maze prize is an exclusive edition of the main hunt prize. While I like the main prize, I’m always ready for a challenge, and the thought of having a prize that will never be offered again? Count me in. The Druid’s Haven is a large orb structure with a bit of magic inside.  The logs and leaves all have single and couple animations. Unique to the maze version of the prize is that the crystal orb changes colors.  Add this piece for an enchanting effect on your garden or hidden sanctuary.

When I think of faeries and elves, green comes to mind.  The creators of some of the clothing must have thought the same.  Lady Gwen’s Gown from Cheeky Parrot Boutique is a beautiful robed gown with a hood for those nights when you need to cast a little love spell on that certain someone or brewing potions kept in bottles from Independent Objects…er I mean seek Mother Gaia’s help in the prosperity of the garden…A men’s cloak is also included.  Get Frocked has a cute dress with an elf on the skirt; it’s not too formal so it’s nice for exploring in the woods or on the beach barefoot much like the elves do.  Add a pair of heels or foot gems and you’re set for a Fae wedding.

Elsewhere in the world, in lands where snow covers the floor, what do the faeries wear? Ollies Follies created a short dress that fits snugly on the body.  Boots and a men’s tunic is included, but you may want to look for some pants to keep your bum warm.  Snow faeries aren’t bothered by the cold and rest in snow flowers like the one I’m sitting in.  The flower from Love Everlasting Plantpets is animated with a few different sits and snowflakes swirling down from the sky.  It’s perfect for winter decor in a garden empty of spring blooms to give hope for new life to come.
