Before the dawn

Standard
Before the dawn

Meet me after dark again and I’ll hold you
I am nothing more than to see you there
And maybe tonight we’ll fly so far away
We’ll be lost before the dawn

My inspiration today was the beautiful temple dancer Nikiya and the tragic story of her love with the warrior Solor, an old story from an older era. I see her waiting for his return from the latest battle, with eager heart and loving eyes, in a time before the sad machinations of jealousy and dark fate.

dream 3

She waits on the beautiful Sovereign Born Chaise Set, one of the wonderful creations by The Roawenwood. The textures are exquisite and it includes several single and couple animations, which you can also adjust to your size. This was an exclusive design for the Treasure Chest, but if you missed it back then, you can still purchase the March Chest at its full price.

dream 1

This lovely dancer is also wearing several items that I found at one of my favorite events, the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The sensual outfit is one of the rare items from Devious Minds, and the jewelled hair is one of the rares from Aisling.

dream 4

I added the Metal Vintage hand accessories from Yasum, also available at the FGC, and the sweet Aztec Dream nose piece by Zuri Jewelry, with gemchanging options.

But Nikiya won’t stay much longer. A tall, familiar figure appeared from the other side of the glass, smiling at her…

My guard begins

Standard
My guard begins

I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men.

This realm is mine to protect, and no threat will ever challenge my sword.

Warrior-1

Playing her parchment moon

Standard
Playing her parchment moon

The starless silence,
fleeing from her rhythmic tambourine,
falls where the sea whips and sings,
his night filled with silvery swarms.

We all rise to the music that calls for us, tambourines mark the beat, and a guitar brings the known old song under the insistence of his expert hands. The dance marries the song, timid at first, then lively and bright.

Dance-2

The fabrics of our garments flutter in the wind. These are the beautiful Song of Shaharazad Gowns, one of the latest creations by Silvan Moon, which you can find exclusively at We RP until the end of May.

Dance-1

These beautiful dancers are wearing it in blue and purple, but there are other colors available, and they will be reduced during the event. Fitted for Slink Physique and Maitreya Lara, the textures are exquisite as usual, and the rigging is wonderful, even if you swing your body to the rhythm.

Dance-4

Copper and silver gleam on delightful bistred skins, shining under a friendly moon. I’m wearing the beautiful Spellbound set, by Zuri Jewelry. One of Zuri’s timeless collections, this is a new Elite version: I can choose several colors of gems, pearl, and metal. I’m also wearing the matching Spellbound Elite engagement ring.

Dance-3

The beautiful Vardo – Romani wagons on the background are a fantastic creation by Anachron, and they’re waiting for you at The Chapter Four, only for a couple more days.

Dance-5

Available in three different colors and splendid designs, these wagons are also scripted to make you feel at home. You can open and close windows, blinds, and doors, there are different single and cuddling animations, and the fire in the furnace can be lit on and off. Perfect to snuggle, hang out, or take a little nap.

Dreamland

Standard
Dreamland

When midnight mists are creeping,
And all the land is sleeping,
Around me tread the mighty dead,
And slowly pass away.

I won’t lie to you. It will hurt. This isn’t the magical dreamland that you were fantasizing about, and I will make sure that you learn that. Let me guide you through the gate.

Death 1

This amazing Underworld Gate is a super cool teleporter created by Anachron for Genre. It’s resizable and comes with easy instructions to set it up on your land. The gate circle is, of course, animated and it looks fantastic.

Death 3

The gown is the absolutely stunning Light of Sarin by Silvan Moon, fit for a queen indeed. I can’t sing enough praises about this gown. It comes in various strong colors at the Fantasy Faire, about which I’ve been bragging all week, and it will also be available in pastel colors very soon at We

Death 4

Even though the gown includes a head piece, tonight I’m wearing the marvelous Lilith Head Dress, a dark dream of black roses and emeralds, and one of the latest releases by Zuri Jewelry. It’s available at the store in various gem tones. I’m also wearing the Snowflake Choker by Zuri, gem/metal changing, and… it could come scripted for Open Collar…

Death 2

The blaze of noonday splendour,
The twilight soft and tender,
May charm the eye: yet they shall die,
Shall die and pass away.

Quotes: “Dreamland”, by Lewis Carroll.

In your head they are dying

Standard
In your head they are dying

Another mother’s breakin’
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken

Where is all the life I left behind? Where is all the love I bled for? There’s only the echo of my boots, the throbbing of my wounds, and the memories of what will never be.

Back home 1
Heavy and muddy, my armor is one of the latest creations by Anachron, exclusively for The Fantasy Faire. As I mentioned in my previous post, the Fantasy Faire is the coolest event for fantasy lovers, creators, RPers of Second Life, and it’s also for a wonderful cause: helping the work of the American Cancer Society with your purchases and donations.

It’s available in several sizes and colors, includes the boots, and on a very personal note, I love the fact that it actually looks like an armor that is useful in battle, like an armor that was much used in battle.

Back home 2

In your head they’re still fightin’
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head, in your head they are cryin’

Eternally mine

Standard
Eternally mine

The road is narrow and long
When eyes meet eyes
And the feeling is strong
I turn away from the wall
I stumble and fall
But I give you it all

My voice echoes and fades on the dark velvet that surrounds us. I sing for you and for you alone, while your eyes dance on the curve of my shoulder and slides down within the folds of my long draped gown.

Opera 1

This beautiful gown is a poem to finesse and style, and it marks the much expected return of Les Encantades to the world of SL, and what better occasion than the wonderful Fantasy Faire?

Not only is the Fantasy Faire the coolest gathering of awesome fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in SL, but also the occasion to contribute to the American Cancer Society through your purchases or direct donations.

Opera 2

You can find this gown and much more at the Faire until the 30th of April. It’s available in several vibrant colors, compatible with classic and mesh bodies.

Timeless and classic, the Antique Pearls collection by Zuri Jewelry is the perfect touch of sophistication, shining under the dim light of the theatre while I sing for you, only for you.

Opera 3

I am a woman in love
And I’d do anything
To get you into my world
And hold you within
It’s a right I defend
Over and over again

Under the dome of white jasmines

Sous le dôme épais
Où le blanc jasmin à la rose s’assemble
Sur la rive en fleurs, riant au matin
Viens, descendons ensemble.

The sun starts its symphony of colors up in the sky, and the sweet light of the sunset dances on the surface of the beautiful pearls on my chest.

Sweet Spring 3

This is the stunning new Mae jewelry set, the latest creation by Zuri Jewelry. It’s available in several colors, and the shape allows you to wear it with several mesh bodies.

The delicate champagne tone I chose is a wonderful companion for the flowing silks of my adorable Spirit Maiden gown, by Silvan Moon, which you can find exclusively at Shiny Shabby.

Sweet Spring 1

Also available in several soft tones, this original mesh design comes with versions for mesh and classic bodies, with the magical combination of talents that is Silvan Moon and that we all love so much.

Under the thick dome where the white jasmine
With the roses entwined together
On the river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning
Let us descend together!
