Heart of Soraya

Bee and Solace at Silvan Moon Designs have a wonderful exclusive for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival!    The three-piece Psalm of Soraya has four lovely commons colours, and full sets in coal and ice as rares.

I shared Spyralle‘s Grow a New Heart with you before, it looks just perfect in Soraya’s chest cut-out

Solas’ fine mesh skills show up in the lovely lace-up back.  And take a look at Bee’s butterflies hiding in the gown texture!

You’d best hurry: the Fantasy Gacha Carnival only lasts until September 7th, then it, too, disappears like a dream.

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.

  • {Way} — Katherine 03 pose

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.

monsterously delicious

Okay, maybe that’s a bit too clever — monstera deliciosa is the scientific name for the split-leaf philodendron, a beautiful tropical plant that can grow up to 10 metres across!  It features beautifully on this little dress from Seniha Originals!

I’m not usually a huge fan of strapless/sleeveless, but this is just too pretty.  It comes in two patterns, a retro style and the tropical style that I’m wearing, and in fitmesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, both SLink bodies, and all three Belleza bodies!

I’m a sucker for a good tropical print, but this one is easy to love.  I hope you’re having a lovely summer!

Let’s get medieval on cancer!

Spyralle is supporting Relay for Life with a lovely gown exclusive for the 2017 UAC Medieval Faire!  Elys is stunning with Kerryth’s lovely textures in gold, blue or purple.

Elys comes in five rigged mesh sizes and three different fitmesh versions as well.  The fitmesh are not mesh-body-specific, but appear to be different bust-sized fitmesh for the standard SL body.  That’s all right, I found that they worked just fine with my Maitreya Lara and SLink Physique bodies — just use the appropriate alpha zones.

Maxi Gossamer‘s Shell Teardrop jewelry set seems as if it were made to augment Elys!

Please come out and support Relay for Life.  I’m always proud of the fundraising efforts that we in SL participate in, it shows we really are part of a larger community!  Visit the 2017 UAC Medieval Faire soon, you have until mid-June and it will just be a memory!

songbird

With graduation marking the end of the school year, summer is officially here as far as I’m concerned! Song Bird is a wonderful little fitmesh shift from Precious Designs with a six-colour HUD.

Beautiful weather, waking to the dawn chorus, picnics, hikes, a little more relaxation time (hopefully), warm rains and thunderstorms — I love summer!

InterSections

My lovely friend Sarah introduced me to the Gem Preiz’s The Anthropic Principle (supported by the Linden Endowment for the Arts) a week ago, and rather challenged me to incorporate it in my photographs.  You can learn much more about the sim here.   It’s a large sprawling cityscape in black and neon, and is truly amazing to wander about!

It seemed a good opportunity to show you Spyralle’s new offering for Genre this month, the Face Inter Face.

  • GRAVES — G257 Mainframe Bodysuit (blue)
  • Spyralle — Face Inter Face Headpiece and HUD (exclusive at Genre)
  • AITUI — Mechanical Wings –  Majesty Snowbird +HUD Rare (Gacha item)
  • [Kikay]Mega Lay Cutie pose

Face Inter Face calls back to an earlier piece that Spyralle did for Genre some years ago.  It’s glasses, a heads-up display, and a restricted message sender all at the same time.  It features a texture-change hud to turn the sunglasses on/off and select one of four different colours, as well as select textures for the little balls and their support pieces.  You can’t see the headband with my hair, but the headband terminates in ring-like headphone speakers for quality audio reception.  😉

Face Inter Face allows the user to project one of several little fractal images on the screen, as well as a couple of emoticons and (my favourite) the letters “afk” and “brb”.  It’s very cute!

A lovely extension of this would be to allow the user to drop in their own small image and toggle through those for the heads-up display.  I’ll have to suggest that to Kerryth…..

For now, stop by Genre before June 11 and pick up a demo.  This is a lovely tech piece, and will easily complement a futuristic or post-apocalyptic get-up.  Or anything else you might think of pairing it with!

Wickedly Enchanting

Is anything so full of Enchantment as the gowns created by Bee and Solas for Silvan Moon Designs?  The fabulous duo brings you Lady Gothel for the May 2017 Rapunzel-themed Enchantment event.

Lady Gothel comes in five colours named (more-or-less) after the deadly sins.  My favourite colours aren’t hard to spot.  I like strong colours, and greens and blues and purples most of all.

I’ve always been an opaque-gemstone kind of girl.  Opal and lapis lazuli may be my favourites.  I’ve had this lovely lapis set from Evelock for ages, but you would think that Evelock and Silvan Moon worked together to create a matched set.

For those of you who may not know, Mother Gothel, the namesake of this gown, was the “evil witch” who kept Rapunzel locked away in her tower from Tangled, the Disney adaptation of the faerie tale.  She’s an interesting character, but I  prefer the representation from Into the Woods, the faerie tale play from Steven Sondheim.  Something about the depth of the Witch, her fear of loss — her actions become understandable, perhaps even forgiveable.

But I digress.

Wicked or not, let Silvan Moon Designs cast their spell over you… stop by Enchantment before this fleeting dream slips away.

Butterflies

Kerryth at Spyralle has a lovely spring/summer dress for you, exclusively at the current round at Swank.  Lila is a mesh dress in four lovely palettes, each one featuring the lovely multicolour fractal patterns you’ve come to love in Kerryth’s work.

EarthStones’ Flight of Fancy is the perfect accent to Lila.  Flight‘s HUD allows you to select bead and wing stone colours from three different textures.  The blue/green ‘swallowtail’ scheme is perfect for Lila blue!

Due to changing customer demand, Kerryth is trying something new.  The standard five rigged mesh sizes are being sold in one box, and fitmesh for Maitreya Lara, both SLink bodies, and all three Belleza bodies is sold together in the other box.  The idea is to help cut down on the unused copies that you either delete or sit around cluttering up your inventory.  The demo box (free, of course!) has all sizes in it.  But make sure that you get the right one when you purchase!
