Blood Magic On The Bayou

A new round of The Fantasy Collective opens today at 12PM SLT and it's all about everything New Orleans. So expect everything from voodoo to witchcraft, vampires and Mardi Gras. I'm wearing the DRD witch doctor mask and staff along with the Noodles Arcadia sandals. I was looking for a place to take this picture and came across a well done bayou, only after I had landed in another place where I was attacked by a bunch of zombies. Only in SL, right? Take a gander at some of the items you'll be able to purchase later today here!

Fear Our Wrath

I love getting to do a post with my close friend and occasional love slave, Lucie Bluebird. It means I get to boss her around for a change. I told her to throw on items from We <3 Roleplay and we ended up with similar outfits. We're both wearing the Pixicat Rogue pants and the attention to detail is flawless. They come with a color change HUD and built in shoes. We're also both wearing the Alchemy Lok armor. I'm only wearing the breastplate but Lucie is sporting the neck plate as well.

ieQED came out with another set of pauldrons for this round (remember the stag ones featured here). I added the bracer and collar set from Noodles with lovely silver filigree texture work. To finish off the outfit I'm wearing the Tableau Vivant Nyoki hair. It comes in male and female fit options, optional shoulder dreads and a color changing feather accessory. And last but not least we completed our "kick butt girl" look with a new pose from RACK Poses, also at We <3 Roleplay like everything else.

Star Light, Star Bright

I was on vacation from work this week and with a break from work, I also took some time out of SL. I think its a good thing to do every once in a while to avoid burning out or becoming bored. I had a lot to deal with at the end of the week in my personal life that left me frustrated, confused and very lost. I turned to my blog because when I don't feel like myself and don't know where to turn, often taking a creative picture helps.

They often say things get worse before they get better and I'm definitely feeling that now. There are some pretty big changes in my life and it's scary. Change is hard, no one likes it. Those closest to me are aware of what's going on and have been nothing but supportive, but it doesn't change the fact that I still feel adrift in cold dark ocean. Will I get back to some kind of normalcy or is this the "new normal"? Who knows. I'll have to take it one day at a time and see.

Golden Royalty

We <3 Roleplay opened for a new round on the 6th and Peqe has out this amazing dress in a variety of colors. The Majestic Dress has static sleeves (posed as shown) so there are no need for mesh hands and it looks best in a standing pose. I'm also wearing the Forge Circlet from The Plastik and a key necklace from Tea S. that is an Enchantment item.

New Wife, New Life

If you haven't heard, a new round of Enchantment started this month and this time the fairytale of choice is Bluebeard. It wasn't a story I was familiar with so I immediately did some research and it is a very grisly and gruesome French folktale, written by Charles Perrault, and first published in 1659. A wealthy aristocrat known as Bluebeard, who is feared because of said ugly beard has taken many wives and no one knows what becomes of them once they disappear. At the beginning of the story he persuades a local girl to marry him after throwing a lavish banquet. She agrees to marry him after such a lavish feast and soon moves into his home.

This picture was inspired by what the young girl would face upon moving into a new and strange place. Kalopsia made Bluebeard's Castle, a brand I am blown away by with every release. There is room inside to decorate on two floors. I'm wearing a new Elikatira hair and The Muses dress for Enchantment called Jeune Mairee. Your purchase includes three color versions of the dress (white, gold and pink) and my picture really doesn't do it justice. Also pictured are new candles from Alouette, available at Fit For A Princess and a swing from Wishbringer coming to We <3 Roleplay.

So what's in store for the new bride? Will she find out what happened to Bluebeard's other brides? Stay tuned for more posts about Bluebeard, his bride and the gruesome ending.

You Know I'm A Dreamer

I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now.
~John Lennon~

Just some more items from The Dreamers Factory. The scene is whimsical (forget the sheep and the bird, who wears heels on a bicycle?) because that's how so many dreams are. They don't make sense and they don't have to. So keep on dreaming, whether in your sleep or lost in thought during your day.

A Rumpus In The Forest

More goodies from the Wild Things gacha event. 8f8 has this gacha collection out called "Inside the Story" with 12 commons and 1 rare, the rare being the book island. Put it all together and you can make your very own storybook rumpus scene. I pulled out an old Auxiliary gacha item as well, this romper and romper hood, to jump around the story in.
