I can’t remember the last time I wore a gown in Second Life outside of blogging a preview.  It felt kind of nice so I think a ballroom might be calling my name.

The gown is by [EvelineintheBox] and will be available soon at Totally Top Shelf along with the jewelry that I am wearing by [Muse].

The gas lamps were perfect for this scene and I love the way they are lighted up. They are from unKindness and can be found at the Tennenbaum Holiday Market.

The devilish sea siren

Devilish Mermaid 011

Ever since I saw this hair as one of the gifts in the recently passed hair fair I thought that it would make a great hair for a mermaid picture.  Then time went by and the thought just sort of fell by the wayside.  That is until recently when I saw this oceania crown by Bite & Claw that is now available at Totally Top Shelf that thought came to the forefront again.  It comes with a friendly to use hud that gives you seven color options to choose from.

The mermaid tail is actually a 2013 item from Devious Mind, who created it for one of the earlier rounds of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  Two years later and it’s still very much appealing and quite an exceptional piece.  That it fit perfectly with my mesh body was a bonus.  There are star fish pasties that were a separate gacha and can be worn with the mermaid tail.  They too are well made, but left more skin exposed in that area than I normal like to show, so my alternative was this bra from .aisling, which is part of the Dangara set, that worked just as great too.

I was pretty pleased with the outcome and now makes me anticipate what new goodies are to be had at the new round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival that soon will be here.

Skully 003

I have never been a big fan of skulls, perhaps because I grew up associating it to darkness and death.   Though over the last few years I’ve seen it’s popularity in and out of Second Life, with the latter making me more comfortable as I’ve seen it’s many uses in fashion and decor.

Well Epia has recently released this wonderfully detailed skull helmet that I’m wearing that changes color of the face and eyes through a touch menu.  The chair that I’m sitting on is from [CIRCA] and is currently at this round of Genre as well as the black latex bodysuit I’m wearing by Sn@tch.

The rest of the items shown are from past events with all details listed below.

She was wild and untamed, but protected her own

Things 001-1

It had just gone pass noon time when I began this post.  Here it is almost 3.5 hours later and I’m finally getting back to it.  My minds seems to be all over the board in thoughts and actions, so I will be lucky if I get anything else done today beyond this post.

So right to it before I get distracted again.  I am featuring this lower body tattoo by Things called the Ragnarok, which is currently available at The Secret Affair.  It comes with system layers and appliers for the Slink physique, Belleza body, Omega Applier/Maitreya and TMP in both fresh and faded intensity.   I’m wearing the Antiope skirt and top by !gO! that kind of gives me that wild and untamed feeling with its grunge look, which is also at TSA.  The shield and spear are by May’s Soul also at the event.  I did mod to change the color of the ribbon.

The raven skull necklace is one of my past Fantasy Gacha Carnival gacha buys from Ariskea and I’m wearing another awesome hair from the Hair Fair that was a gift from [KoKoLoReS].  I’m also wearing these lashes and face tattoo that were also a gift from another wonderful creator Zisbka, also at the Hair Fair.  It’s probably a little quieter at the Hair Fair now after its opening week and my first purchases, so it may be a great time to return to pick up some of that hair that’s on my to buy list.

Once I was dressed the wild sort of called me and so I decided to set up this simple scene of being out in the wilds of Africa somewhere with some of my favorite landscape items by Sweet Revolutions.  The eagle is actually a pose prop as a shoulder pet and available at TSA, but hey it looked better on the elephant.

Saving the earth, going green

Green 001

On a whim I purchased this fantasy skin at the last Fifty Linden Friday.  I thought it was pretty and interesting. At least to go around in it for a day or so.  My sis said do you know you have a tree on your head.  I answered that it was good to know her eye sight wasn’t failing her yet.
