Toujours, la mort

Standard
Toujours, la mort

En vain pour éviter les réponses amères,      In vain to avoid bitter replies,
en vain tu mêleras;                                              in vain will you shuffle;
cela ne sert à rien, les cartes                             that achieves nothing, the cards
sont sincères et ne mentiront pas!                  are truthful and will not lie!

If your page in the book up above is a happy one, shuffle and cut without fear, the card under your fingers will turn up nicely, foretelling good luck. But if you are to die, if the terrible word has been written by Destiny, begin twenty times – the pitiless card will repeat: Death!

Better be ready for the answer, if you dare asking the question. This is the sober and elegant Spirit Board chair set, created by The Roawenwood for this round of Memento Mori. Until February 9th, you can find this set with the sumptuous armchair, ottoman, a decorative Ouija board, and two beautifully macabre candles.

Shuffle time and again your Dark Arts Tarot Set, by Anachron, scattered on the floor in front of you. This tarot set chants your readings in local chat, and can be spread in various formations, like the Celtic Cross on the floor.

The eerie light from the candles dances on the dark gems of my Elegant Elite Choker, by Zuri Jewelry, and the Metaverse Sari Elite Ring, also by Zuri. The lip piercing is rigged for Bento, by Cerberus Xing.

My smile still stays on

Standard
My smile still stays on

The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

It’s the art of make-believe. Let me disguise reality under a thick layer of virtual happiness, and drown every thought with the immortal sweetness of chocolate. Ah, let me live like this forever, and never wake up.

This lovely cart of sugary comfort is the latest creation by The Roawenwood, which you can find exclusively at Draftsman – an SL architectural event. It’s impossible to look at those delicious pastries without craving for them.

The event runs until February 9th, and there you can find this refreshment cart, and also these beautiful vintage parlor chairs in two different colors: teal or rose.

diva-2

I love the versatility of this furniture. You can use them to decorate a Victorian parlor, a modern home, or anything else your imagination calls for. The chairs come with a few smooth animations for male and female avatars.

I’m also showing a little teaser of LaZe’s new creation, the vanity mirror/dresser I’m leaning on. I try practicing my smiles, but alas, Second Life mirrors never smile back. Show must go on.

diva-1

I guess I’m learning, I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free
The show must go on.

Blue skies smilin’ at me

Standard
Blue skies smilin’ at me

Never saw the sun shinin’ so bright
Never saw things goin’ so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my how they fly

I know the cold wind will bring your steps to me, and I wait. I saved all my smiles for you, and the warmth of my arms, the perfume of my hair, and the passion of my lips… I wait for you. I see your silhouette against the bright sunset light that reflects on the tundra. My heart races and I wait for you.

mongol-1

These are the beautifully crafted ger (or yurt) made by Anachron, exclusively for the current round of Genre: The Mongols. The perfect balance between realistically accurate and extremely cute, these gers come in various colors and have scripted doors and top covers, to let the sunshine inside. The textures are exquisite, with the typical bright and colorful Mongolian style.

mongol-2

Even though they seem rather small, the inside ends up being quite spacious, with enough place for everything a good nomad would need… including a bath tub. The water is hot… are you joining in?

Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin’ but blue skies from now on

Nessun dorma

Standard
Nessun dorma

Nessun dorma…                              No one must sleep…
Tu pure, o Principessa,                  You, too, o Princess,
nella tua fredda stanza                in your cold room
guardi le stelle che tremano       look at the stars, that tremble
d’amore e di speranza!                with love and with hope!

The air feels thin as the princess paces in despair under the moonlight. Nobody was supposed to guess the riddles, nobody can ever have me. And yet, he did. The unknown prince guessed them all, earning her hand in marriage. She begged, she cried, she threatened, and she was granted another chance. Now she’s the one who must solve a riddle. I must find the name of the stranger before dawn, and then he will die just as all the others before him... Or everyone else in Pekin will.

My version of the cruel and beautiful princess Turandot is wearing one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry: the Snowflake Elite Choker, to go with her heart of ice. This lovely piece offers you a menu with 10 different gem textures for two sets of gems, and 2 metals to choose from. Here is your carriage to the Zuri Jewelry main store.

Principessa di morte!           Princess of death!
Principessa di gelo!              Princess of ice!
Dal tuo tragico cielo             Come down to earth
scendi giù sulla terra!…       from your tragic heaven!

oqueen-2

Princess Turandot could not obtain the name of the stranger before dawn. As it happens often in operas, there was tragedy and death, there were passionate confessions of love, and her heart melted for the first time in her life. His name is Calaf… No, his name is love. They married. But was that really a happy ending? I guess it depends whom you ask.
