Fallen goddess

The mist hangs close to your skin, a cool shiver runs down your spine that had nothing to do with the cold.  You look around furtively, and there — framed in the glow of the streetlight, regal and shining in silver and black… one who walks as if she owns these streets…

Okay, I confess — I am NOT a fan of hats in SL.  Even when they’re pretty, they…. just don’t work very well.  But then sometimes the perfect outfit just pops into existence for you.  When I found Silvan Moon Designs‘ new exclusive dress for the Fallen Gods Decennial, I knew that Spyralle‘s Breakfast in Vegas would make quite the statement.

The monsters were out, all right… but she was the one to be wary of.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Spoiled

This little dress was a gift on Monthly Midnight Madness.  If you don’t belong to this group you’re missing out on some wonderful giveaways each month!  But really, I wore it to show off the gorgeous new jewelry that my darling Aeon got me for my rezday recently!  She spoils me terribly 🙂

The dress is in fitmesh sizes for Lara, Hourglass, and Physique.  There was an a texture HUD available for it too, but I didn’t bother buying it.

Aeon gave me a gift card to Chop Zuey for my rezday.  She’s so wonderful!  Chop Zuey is one of the largest jewelry makers in SL, and their range is awesome.  I spent days looking for something that would be suitable for both casual and formal wear, and I had settled on a tennis necklace in diamond and platinum.  I went to buy it and the store uses one of the gift card systems where you have to rez out the card, and that transfers the amount to store credit.  So I had to go home to rez the card, and as I was coming back, I noticed this set that I’d missed in my days of agonizing.  I changed my mind in about 20 seconds 🙂

It’s a really lovely set, again in diamond and platinum, consisting of the choker, left and right bracelets, and earrings.  There are two other version available, one in diamond and gold, and one in black diamond and gold.  And to top it all off, this was a set designed for Layka Zelin when she was Miss Venezuela Virtual in 2014!  Wow!

Here’s a closeup of the bracelet.  One minor issue is that the bracelets and the choker are all attached to weird places.  Don’t just add these, attach the bracelets to your left and right hands and the choker to your neck.  You’ll then need to edit them to place them correctly.  The bracelets can be a little tricky figuring out which way is the right way up, so perhaps wear them right out of the box first so you know how they should look.

Also be aware that detailed jewelry like this is very expensive when it comes to avatar rendering complexity.  The choker alone is approximately an additional 62,100 rendering cost!

A touch of darke

I’ve been blogging about Petite Mort for a while now, but I don’t know how many of you know about Melora’s more recent venture, Oubliette!  Oubliette has a different flavour than Petite Mort, a bit of goth, a bit of darkness — or as one of my favourite book series says, “darkeness”.  That darkeness fires Lucretia, an exclusive art-deco inspired gown for the Midsummer Enchantment event!

Lucretia comes in fitmesh sizes for Maitreya, TMP, both SLink and all three Belleza bodies, and there’s a lovely palette of six colours for you to choose from.

I really love the beautiful way that Melora has worked the angular lines of the dress into the more flowery curves at the top and at the hem.   That’s always seemed the beautiful paradox of art deco to me, drawing from art nouveau, merging the linear and the curved.

Stop by Midsummer Enchantment, visit Oubliette, and revel in the darke.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!
