TTS 2nd Anniversary Photo Contest

“She brandished a sword just as good as she did her femininity…”


This anniversary round of Totally Top Shelf is coming to an end in the next days and I wanted to get in one more post before it was over.  I’m also participating in the photo contest as I liked the idea of using items from previous events. Here’s one good reason for liking my inventory set up of naming folders by events and dating them.

I’m featuring the newest release of skins by Essences called Zara made for Catwa and it’s available now at this round of Shiny Shabby.  Now for this contest photo. The theme for this round of Totally Top Shelf is Rome and I really loved this dress that I’m wearing that is named after the Roman Goddess Minerva.  It’s why I decided to stick to the theme for this picture and feature items that would compliment what I’m wearing.  The dress is by [QE] Designs and the ear cuffs are by Attitude is an Art Form, which are a little hard to see so I did this close up photo to show the jewelry a bit better. The other jewelry that I am wearing is by [Ketamine], which are the bracelets and finger rings with turquoise.


The dangling bracelet is an older event item by !Musa!.  The hair and the golden net are by Chimeric Fashions, also from a previous Totally Top Shelf event as well as the Gyda Torq and armlet by QweenB.  The sword also is from a pose set by La Jolie Rose Poses.

The rest of the items are just from ongoing or previous events, which are all listed below.  The garden pavilion with the lanterns, chaise and table are by Dysfunctionality, which I just now recall doing a previous Roman theme, “Respite”.

Have a great Monday!

Heavy On My Heart

Angel 0173

I often take pictures for my own amusement and this is one I took a few days ago from some of the items from the epiphany event. Sometimes pictures are an expression of what I may be feeling or thinking or often just an inspiration that arises from whatever I have put together.  This was just an inspiration as I wanted something different than other pictures I’ve taken using wings. Though it’s eerie how it serves a purpose today to express my emotions in this case when my heart feels heavy over someone that I care about.

It’s a blessing and a curse to be quite sensitive sometimes, especially when I am extremely connected with someone as it means that I have a keen awareness to their moods without even having to be told.

I just feel it.

This was my original take and the rest was done using pic-monkey.

I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

Desert 068

So many great fantasy events lately and it’s always hard to choose what to get and style.  Though it’s not hard when it comes to any head wear by LODE as I practically like every piece that comes out.  This Kazakh forest head wear was no exception, even if I had no idea how I would end up using it.

Then I saw these camels and instantly was inspired to do something with a desert and then everything sort of just started to come together.
