Hyperborean Chieftan

I make it a point not to re-blog old items, but sometimes you have to.  I first blogged the Snowmoon Silk Road tunic and pants from Spyralle almost two years ago — just a few weeks shy of two years.  Do you want a good laugh?  Go back and take a look at that post!

There’s a good reason to come back to the Silk Road tunic — Kerryth has created Eagle of the Snows, a new headdressb designed to complement Snowmoon, and it’s available only at Genre!

Eagle of the Snows has a number of wonderful options!  There is a removable mask-like portion (shown attached above, and removed, below).  There is also a texture HUD that allows three different pattern choices for the front and side gems.

The War Lance from Dragonsfyre was just what I needed to complete the ensemble.  It’s very nicely done, my only problem was that while resizeable, the minimum size was too big for a “normal” sized avatar (that is, my height of just under 2 m tall).  No problems, I was able to edit -> edit linked and resize the staff and adjust the feathers just right!

Okay, now for the bad news.  This is the last time for GenreSpyralle has been a part of Genre for a very long time, and Eagle of the Snows is a bit of a good-bye to this wonderful event.

Do stop by, let’s give Genre a good send-off!

Caught in the setting sun

I’m in trouble — or my bank account is.  I’ve found a merchant doing what I’ve been waiting for for ages: combine the beauty of mesh and the motion of flexi in the same skirt!  Nur from ALB Dream Fashion features just this:  a mesh top and base skirt, and flexi skirt add-ons that swish and flow as you dance!  WOW!

I know there’s been some well written posts about the dearth of fitmesh for Belleza bodies lately, and while I don’t have Belleza, I certainly sympathise.  Nur comes with fitmesh for all three Belleza bodies, TMP, both SLink and Maitreya.  Well done!

I think I’m going to have to go back to ALB and spend some more money, there are some beautiful flexi skirts there!

for the evening breeze

A moonlit night is the perfect time for a stroll along the water’s edge… and EvelineInTheBox has just the loveliest sexy things for it.

Eveline’s Nandi is perfectly daring for a light breeze in off of the water.  Care to go for a walk with me?

Nandi is an older piece from EvelineInTheBox, and is available in the standard rigged mesh sizes plus a single fitmesh for the standard SL body.  I was able to fit it pretty nicely with my Maitreya Lara‘s alpha zones nevertheless.  Eveline does have mesh-body-fitmesh on newer pieces, and you’ll see some of those from me in the future.

I hope that your Monday is bright and shining!  Aloha!  A hui hou!

Tanned in the summer sun

I don’t usually model different skins, but thought I’d try a little something different for a Friday.  Alaska Metro offers Sunny,  few lovely new face and Fit, a matching skin at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair!  Both come in three skintones, and Sunny has options for no eyebrows, light, medium, and dark shades.  Fit is released as an update to Alaska Metro’s older skin line.  Fit includes Omega, Maitreya and SLink appliers, and nail polish for both natural and french finishes.

 

Sunny comes in appliers for Omega (head only), Lelutka, and Catwa.  The Omega version is optimised for the new LOGO and LAQ Bento heads, but it works just fine, I think, on my [GA.EG] Barbara Bento head!  

  • <K&S> — Candy #2 pose

The Mesh Body Addicts faire has just ended, but look for Sunny and Fit at the Alaska Metro mainstore.

Happy Aloha Friday!  Mahalo,  a hui hou!

Child of the djinni

The theme for Enchantment right now is “A thousand nights and a night”, the tales of Princess Scheherazade.  Silvan Moon Designs offers Princess Parizade Dhoti as an exclusive for the event, with side-slit harem pants, top, and coin belt and scarf in three independent pieces.

Princess Parizade Dhoti comes in six lovely colours, in fitmesh for SLink Physique and Hourglass and for Maitreya Lara.

After moving from [GA.EG]‘s Kirsten non-bento head to the Barbara bento face, I lost two of my favourite eye makeup add-ons — the iLiner and the Nefertiti just didn’t work well on the bento face.  I’m so very happy to introduce [GA.EG]‘s newest eyeliner, Audacity.  Audacity is certainly an upgrade on iLiner, but with flavours of Nefertiti added on.  I’m so thrilled to have this look back!

Of course, facial expressions (eyebrows and mouth in particular) change the way that the different eye makeups are interpreted, so it’s kind of fun to see how they play together in each of the above looks.

Stop on by Enchantment and find this little bit of the exotic from Silvan Moon Designs!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

The Courtesan

Night,
dark, soft, alluring,
spinner of dreams I want to be lost in,
is a kindhearted courtesan,
who never demanded anything
for all her loving, that to me
was like a swim in the pool
of “Ananda” I was searching for.

I climbed her door steps
with the silent footfalls of a cat,
all these years for solace,
when the fair lass ,
regaled by my songs evening after evening,
scoffed and taunted,
when I fell wounded
in duels of life, I was forced to fight
to keep my honor intact.

Once,
seeing me left in the lurch,
blood soaked and badly wounded
she led my tired legs
to her house of magic and secret treasure hunts,
blessed me with oblivion, till I woke up.
Her mansion became
arena of silent dances of wounded memories,
till sun appeared above misty mountains
cheering me up with new promises,
but my thoughts never left her.
I spent my darkest hours
in her house,
thrilled by dreams she induced,
in which under moonbeams
princesses gathered,
bubbling fine wine brimmed
in sparkling glasses,
I felt the most loved man
within her tender arms.
I would wait for the night, my sullied lover,
to arrive with her hands of breeze,
to tousle my hair and caress my face.
Night  took away my pains,
her lasciviousness is the only drink,
that makes me ask for more.
She is not only mine,
as a courtesan, she needs to entertain
whoever seeks her,
But when I am with her,
she is all mine.

(Night is a Kind Hearted Courtesan, by K. Balachandran)

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs have a beautiful new gown for you at The Secret Affair.  The Courtesan is a two-piece mesh gown (gown and overskirt) available in four different lovely colour combinations for SLink and Maitreya bodies.

The Secret Affair has some wonderful treasures.  Stop by and take a look around before this secret disappears!

Friday meoooooww!

Happy Friday!  Wherever you are, I hope you’re looking forward to a bright shiny weekend!

The sky is blue, the breeze is soft, the smell of flowers is in the air.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

A thousand nights and a night

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs have a lovely exclusive for you at We Love Role Play this month: the beautiful Song of Shaherazade.

Song of Shaherazade is a single-piece mesh available in in fitmesh for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara only.

Shaherazad is available in six lovely colours — black, blue, green, purple, white and red.  Bee’s texturing is just amazing: I love the hip scarf and the the coin detail on the top.

I think I’ve blogged the Alae Atrae neckpiece from Rowena’s Designs before: it’s a beautiful neckpiece featuring an ankh and spine-wing motif, with a colour selection HUD.

Song of Shaherazade is a lovely outfit with a Indian/middle-eastern period feel, but it’s only around this month!  Stop by We Love Role Play and take a look today!
