Enchantment preview: Bluebeard

Fairytales in their original form tend to be gruesome, and Bluebeard – the inspiration for the upcoming August round of Enchantment – is more gruesome than most.

A young woman marries an infamous local aristocrat, possessed of and named for his blue beard. Soon after the marriage, Bluebeard tells his wife (unnamed in the story) that he must travel for business, and will be gone some weeks. He hands her to keys to every room in his castle, telling her she may access all the rooms except one, on pain of his anger and punishment.

Inevitably, the young wife breaks his interdict, and makes her way to the secret chamber discovering its horrific secret; Bluebeard has murdered his previous wives and hung their remains from hooks on the wall. She drops the key into a pool of blood, and try as she might, she cannot remove the bloodstain from the magical key.

Bluebeard then returns unexpectedly early, but the young woman is rescued by her brothers in the nick of time.

~Summer in Sailors Cove~

Reason 99999 why I LOVE Second Life…I can live anywhere I want to and the move is a snap! A lot of people in SL just don’t think that having a “home” is important…but I have always had a home in SL; for me it is part of the immersive experience.  I’ve lived in skyboxes, […]

The wandering stars, the wandering June

So I finally got a chance to log in (busy RL, SL not cooperating) and head over to Collabor88. This month’s theme is nautical, and there are logs of fun things to pick up. Not least among them are this cool hair from Clawtooth (optional starfish attachment not shown) and top from Milk Motion.

Next on my list to check out is (Tales of Fantasy gacha event) where you’ll find these horns from The Forge. The necklace is from Luminary and you’ll find it at the upcoming round of Genre, which opens on June 15.

We Love Role-Play is still going strong, with everything discounted between 25 and 50%, including these pants from Paper Moon and the gorgeous bag from The Library.

Current rounds of Enchantment and We Love Role-Play end this weekend

A lot of events are ending this weekend, as the calendar changes from May to June.

One of these is the current round of We Love Role-Play (the new round will open on 4 June).
Just to be confusing, I’m wearing items from both the soon-to-end and soon-to-open rounds.

Currently available is the Zinga belt (with matching anklets, not seen) from May’s Soul. Don’t forget all items at We<3RP are discounted between 25-50% so take advantage of the opportunity to get it for less. Coming soon is the hair-headdress combination from Emo-Tions. (Note: The hair, horns, crown and face chain are one piece, so you can’t wear or move them around individually.) The pack includes a hud which lets you change hair tone and the colour of the jewels.

The tunic/ camisk I’m wearing is a recent release from Soedara, called Siv of the North, and I’m not actually wearing half of what you get in the box. Each pack includes two colours of the mesh tunic in two lengths each, circlet, chore belt, rope belt, boots, and bracelets. Thre’s also a clothing layer undershirt (to keep those nips covered!) and and armbands, which I am wearing.

Another event ending this weekend is Enchantment. The bracelets I’m wearing are from Boom, and they’re one of the special, exclusive prizes you can choose when you buy an Enchantment item from participating stores and complete the stamp card contained within. This post on the official Enchantment blog explains the conce (Read more...)


Natsumi Girl is a new release from  Soedara, it’s an Asian-styled ‘dress’ so perfect for Pani roleplay sims. The outfit includes five sizes of mesh, bracelets, and a hair flower. It’s also a bargainous 150L.

I haven’t tried layering it yet, I suspect it might work well as a tunic over trousers, but it looks like it might be a little too fitted for skirts and gowns.

Also, if you’re not as out of the loop as I am, you probably already know that Aisling (or a i s l i n g) are celebrating their first anniversary. They’ve very generously put out a special collection of gifts, which includes this circlet and necklace set for women. (There’s also a necklace for men, and a variety of decor items.)

This slurl should take you right there – Aisling anniversary gift - but if you do land at the main entrance, look for the special glowing teleportal! I’m not sure how long gifts will be out for, but at least one is a limited edition and the countdown clock reads 19 days.

Earrings (by Distorted Dreams) and Face jewels (from The Forge) are both available at We Love Role-Play while my foot jewels (Pure Poison) and fan are from Fantasy Gacha Carnival 
Both events run until the end of the month.

Love Hurt Bleed at World Goth Fair

Love Hurt Bleed is a jewelry set balancing between the hardness of the wire and the delicate shape of the gemstone drop in the end. The simple loop around the neck is enhanced with the gemstone detail, the wire leading down to a larger gemstone, drawing your gaze with it. The earrings are shaped in an […]

FF2014: SSD

Today is the last day of  Fantasy Faire for 2014, so it’s your last chance to wander the awe-inspiring sims and snap up some purchases in aid of the American Cancer Society.

In these pictures, I’m wearing a set of body jewelry from Sax Shepherd Designs (Hope’s Horizon sim). This is the Nyx set in gunmetal.  Your set includes a forehead jewel, necklace, earrings, nipple covers (with a set pre-positioned for Lola’s), belt, and a bikini bottom for modesty (!). There’s also a hud which allows you to turn the modesty on or off, recolour it, and change the colour of the gems.

If you have some add-on silks, you can turn the jewelry set into some dancing silks. After the jump, I’ve used Soedara’s add-on silks for the Adora Bejewelled outfit. These are perfect as you get several different lengths and style of silk, and front and back are separate so you can position them exactly as you want.

I’ve also added some hand and foot jewels from On a Lark, because I’m a sucker for hand/foot jewels…

FF2014: Fairytale

I took some photos at Fantasy Faire sim Hope’s Horizon the other day, and noticed that the white tree near the summit was labelled ‘RIP Daddy’. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that tears came to my eyes.

Sometimes, it’s little touches like this that remind us what Fantasy Faire is all about. There isn’t a single one of us who hasn’t been touched by cancer in some way, whether someone dear to us has been taken too soon, or is bravely battling the disease.

While the funds raised for the American Cancer Society are vital, the Faire also gives us a chance to remember and honour those we have lost to the disease, and be thankful for and celebrate loved ones who have pulled through.

It’s in this vein that Augurer of Luminary has included moving tributes with each of her RFL items and named the gowns for the women in question. I’m wearing Annette, a beautifully modest outfit, fit for a fairytale princess.

I’ve teamed it with House of Rain’s Melt necklace and earrings, and I’m sitting on {anc}’s Fairytalebook pose prop. (You have to see this in-world; my photos don’t do it justice, and it’s a mere 4 land impact.)

Tomorrow is the last day of Fantasy Faire; so visit while you still can.

FF2014: Peacocking

Due to time constraints, this is going to be a quick post, so here goes.

Today, from Fantasy Faire I’m wearing Paiva, a stunning gown and cloak outfit from The Muses. The outfit comes in four pieces; gown, fabric cloak, additional feather cloak, and feather cloak clasps, so you can mix and match.

The necklace is from BluPrintz (another new-to-me store) and the gem is colour change… to match your birthstone. I’m also wearing several items from LaNoir Soleil – the eyes, hair and horns. (I also added and tinted a random modifiable hairbase that was lurking in my inventory.)

Now, I know I’ve told you this before, but the Faire only runs until the 11th May – that’s this Sunday. So please don’t miss your opportunity to visit the beautiful sims and maybe even support the American Cancer Society by buying from the special vendors.

A couple of Fifty Linden Friday items in the mix too. The armbands are from Noodles, and the poses are the special offer from !bang. You’ll find slurls to the stores linked in the credits at the end, remember the offers are only good for today!

I’d also like to draw your attention to the fabulous sandals, brand new from Pure Poison who are really turning out some beautiful add-ons for Slink feet these days.

FF2014: My new shiny

This year, there are a number of Fantasy Faire blogger challenges. You don’t have to be an official blogger or even a blogger to take part – if you’d like to know more, details are on the official FF blog.

This post is my shot for ‘My New Shiny’ – a challenge to find a store you’d never heard of before, and blog or photograph something you love from there.

Even though I haven’t spent nearly as much time exploring the Faire as I’d like (must rectify that before it closes on May 11), I did stumble across two treasures.

First of these is the Fantasy Headdress and Collar from Unzipped (on the Asperatus sim). The set includes the filigree mask and sidepieces, the collar, and the black feather-y ‘hair’. It’s one of Unzipped’s RFL items so benefits the American Cancer Society, and it’s a very good deal at 400L!

Second is the Mystik foot jewel from Hollyweird, who are sharing a booth with Heartistic and Cutebomb (on the Mourningvale Thicket sim). I love foot and hand jewels, and this one is slightly different in that it’s for Slink mid feet rather than flat… perfect for dancers, elegantly perched on the tips of their toes. Again, it’s an RFL item, and 150L seems a fair price for such a pretty little trinket.
