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!

Where are we now?

Had to get the train
From Potsdamer Platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Oh, Berlin, my Berlin, beautiful Berlin, multifaceted Berlin of my heart. I can breathe the melancholy history of your terror and dividing walls, while the sun brings a new spring of “multi-kulti” happy youth. You stole my heart forever, my Berlin forever, my new home.

Even though summers here are weak, I’m wearing my super cool Crop Out Hoodie, by Anachron, which you can find exclusively at The Thrift Shop. It comes in various colors and includes mesh body versions. You can go get yours until the first days of May, and you can also find there some more cool urban/punk creations from Anachron, like these Rebel Shorts I’m wearing, and more.

punk berlin 2

I’m Berliner and I’m tourist, too, sometimes I still walk wide-eyed and eager to discover and capture all the secrets of your vibrant nights. I still let you seduce me every day with the strength of the past, with the sweet promise of today, with the fascinating mystery of the future. Do you know where you’re walking?

Nude

Standard
Nude

Nude, you are simple as one of your hands,
Smooth, earthy, small, transparent, round:
You have moonlines, applepathways:
Nude, you are slender as a nude grain of wheat.

I let your eyes feast on the curves of my skin. I need no garments, no other garb than your longing caress and the sumptuous beauty of my jewelry on the warm skin.

Comet-1

This ode to luxury is Zuri Jewelry’s new Comet Jewels collection. Partial mesh with Zuri’s incomparable diamond gems, this set brings the classic sophistication of vintage jewelry, with a touch of tender fantasy. I’m wearing the Onyx/Diamond gems with sterling silver, but it’s also available in several other color combinations at the main store (the bracelet belongs to the Ava Elite collection… which I also recommend!).

Comet-2

Nude, you are blue as the night in Cuba;
You have vines and stars in your hair;
Nude, you are spacious and yellow
As summer in a golden church.

Singing only for your eyes

Singing only for your eyes

Manhã, tão bonita manhã                       Morning, such a beautiful morning
Na vida, uma nova canção                      In life, a new song
Cantando só teus olhos                            Singing only for your eyes
Teu riso, tuas mãos…                                Your smile, your hands…

Because there will be a day when you will return…

At last, the Spring remembered this cold corner of the world, and a playful sun poured joy and warmth all around.

Ninfa-2

It’s time to leave those heavy garments behind and walk on this beautiful silky, flowy, and delicate Rhapsody gown. This is the last creation of Silvan Moon, found exclusively at We ❤ RP until the end of April. Fitted for Slink and Maitreya and available in a few sweet tones, this light dress will be reduced during the event.

My jewelry comes from -you guessed it- Zuri Jewelry. The adorable floral tiara that I wear is the Elite version of the Nahla Floral Crown (not available yet, but coming soon!). It allows you to choose the color of the pearls and metals. Here I chose the same Blue Fire Opal of my Tender Heart collection, also by Zuri.

Ninfa-1

Das cordas do meu violão                            From my guitar strings
Que só teu amor procurou                           That only wanted your love
Vem uma voz                                                  Comes a voice
Falar dos beijos perdidos                             Talking about kisses
Nos lábios teus                                               Lost in your lips

My heart sings, joy has return on the morning of your love…

Quotes: “Manhã de Carnaval”, by Antônio Maria (translated by me).

Whoever you are

Standard
Whoever you are

– Quem é você, diga logo…                            – Who are you, tell me now…
– Que eu quero saber o seu jogo…               – I want to play your game…
– Que eu quero morrer no seu bloco…       – I want to get lost in your block…
– Que eu quero me arder no seu fogo.        – I want to burn in your fire…

Masked lovers search for each other while the music comes alive, playing the guessing game between drinks and dances. “I play the tambourine”, hints the tall stranger. “I prefer the guitar”, she playfully answers from behind the feathers of her mask.

carnival

The Carnival is a vibrant, wonderful celebration in the tropical lands where my roots used to lay. Tonight I celebrate it with style, wearing this sumptuous gown made by Silvan Moon. It’s called the “Fairy Godmother”, and you can still find it for a few more days exclusively at Enchantment. A dream of fantasy, this gown also includes a delicate pair of wings, which I’m not wearing today.

carnival-2

I chose a special jewelry set from the fantasy collections of Zuri Jewelry, the Dark Faith, Elite version (gem change, metal change). I liked how the feathers complemented my mask, and the delicate flexi parts subtly followed the pace of my dance.

carnival-3

Mas é Carnaval!                                                 But it’s Carnival
Não me diga mais quem é você!                   don’t tell me who you are anymore!
Amanhã tudo volta ao normal.                     tomorrow everything goes back to normal
Deixa a festa acabar,                                         let the party end,
Deixa o barco correr.                                         let the boat sail
Deixa o dia raiar, que hoje eu sou                 let the sun rise, and tonight I am
Da maneira que você me quer…                     any way you want me to be…
