The Glorious Ludwig van…

I have to admit.  I’m a huge fan of A Clockwork Orange.  I also quite enjoy Beethoven.  So when I was making this new outfit, I figured I should name it after one of the greatest composers in history: The Glorious Ludwig van, as Alex deLarge was fond of calling him.  Beethoven’s iconic high-collared coat … Continue reading

In the Summertime

Back in the good old days, circa sometime between Victorian times and the early 20th century, beachwear was stunningly attractive, easy to swim in, and made from fabulously heat resistant wool.  Men and women alike daringly showed off their ankles and elbows.  It was quite the love-fest on the beaches of yesteryear, I can tell … Continue reading

Mistress on a Sunday

Another look at the Nimue gown from Evie’s Closet. I wanted to create a ‘Victorian bad girl’ look (a scarlet dress for a scarlet woman) so here she is – Mistress on a Sunday.

Nimue

More from We Love Role-Play!  This amazing gown is Nimue from Evie’s Closet, and it’s an amazingly structured and detailed piece of mesh. You can find it in three colours, discounted, at the event, while there are even more colours available back at the mainstore. To my eye, it has a Victorian or Edwardian look; so I think it would work really well for steampunk settings.

This vintage-inspired hair is new from Calico and it includes a highly-customisable texture change rose accessory.  I love the waves and whorls at the back of the style, and how it’s pulled back cleanly from the face. This makes it perfect for showing off earrings!

Speaking of which, these earrings come from Distorted Dreams and are a lovely, substantial piece of mesh. Personally, I do like my jewelry to be quite large – the better for everyone to see an appreciate it. Once again, the eyes are from Musa’s gacha, in the special gacha chalet at the event.

Dressage For Success – A Twisted Hunt Gift

A friend of mine on plurk was pining for the Fjords while lamenting the lack of Dressage suits for men in Second Life.  I was vaguely aware that people riding in horse competitions wear something that looks a bit like a tuxedo with knee high boots, and it’s just the sort of thing I enjoy … Continue reading »

Pretty

Yay! Pretty flexies!

I wanted to show you some particular items tonight, so I kind of threw together a look. The items in question are a new handbag from Junbug and a jewelry set from AZE.

What both pieces have in common is their essential ‘prettiness’ – both are delightfully feminine and delicately colourful.

The AZE jewelry set is inspired by Victorian magic lanterns – a kind of slideshow. The necklace shows a rendition of the actual projector, so it might be best kept to contemporary, Victorian or steampunk sims. The earrings and bracelets don’t have this reference though so can be worn anywhere!

Gothmas by Gaslight – More Goodies

So.  Gothmas by Gaslight. Like the commuter train barreling around the bend at dangerous speeds, the holidays are fast approaching.  As much as we expect them, we’re still blindsided by the speed at which they attack our sensibilities.  Christmas is one of those holidays that oozes out of the cracks sometime in August, grows exponentially … Continue reading »
