About Laura Blues

Let me think whom I want to be today...

My night arrives

Standard

You won’t hear the soft crunch of my hooves on the fresh snow, but I’m coming, for sure I’m coming. You better behave, you better feast on my honor and set my table, because I know your sins, and my night is coming. Please me, and I will bring you health and prosperity. Cross me, and I will stomp on you and yours, rip you open and stuff your remains with waste.

Krampus 1

A dark counterpart for St. Nikolaus, Perchta is coming for you, rattling chains and bells, and ready to punish your sins. She wears the exquisite Antoinette corset, created by Les Encantades exclusively for the December round of We  RP. Available in several colors (and a very special Christmas-themed pattern), it’s compatible with several mesh bodies and the classic avatar. It gets along beautifully with Stargazer’s new Ancoebus make up and body tattoo, available at the Makeover Room.

My skin is the beautiful Neeltje, by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at eBento until the end of December. To match the beautiful freckles of her face, I used one of the new 7DS body skin packs, including plain, moles, and two intensities of freckles. I couldn’t resist adding the luscious Clarity lipstick, also by 7DS, coming soon!

Krampus 2

Those delicate little golden snowflakes on my hair are one of Zuri Jewelry‘s best winter-themed creations of the year, the Falling Snow Hairpins. They are Elite, which means that I can choose between several colors of gems and metals, and they match beautifully with my Ice Queen jewelry set, also Elite. Zuri waits for you with a wonderful Cart Sale and Hunt, and group members can receive the 12 Days of Christmas gifts each day (and a little bird told me that group fee is only L$ 49 just for today).

Constant reinvention

Standard

No special story today, no song quotes. Just a few simple words from me, the writer behind the many Lauras that you’ve seen in this blog.

The many Lauras might be characters, sometimes historical, sometimes fictional, but often they’re more than that. They’re all part of me, they all remind me of a place I’ve been to, an experience I had, a story I read, someone I met, someone I love.

Second life makes it possible for me to be all these fragments of me, and one of the creators who greatly contributes to my constant reinvention is 7 Deadly S{k}ins. The talented Izara designs beautiful, sensual faces -for men and women- and pampers her group members with continuous sales, hunts, and gifts.

ADVENT-event-2017

Today is the LAST day you can join the inworld store group for the regular fee of L$ 225, and enjoy ALL the freebies that Izara has in store for you during December. Tomorrow, the group join fee will rise to L$ 1000 (still a pretty good deal, considering all the free stuff that’s coming up…).

I know this post is radically different from what I normally do, but it’s thanks to 7DS and the many gorgeous faces, that I’m able to play with my imagination and create all the silly little stories that I share with you.

Here’s your ride to 7 Deadly S{k}ins

 

Always together

Standard
Always together

They said, “I bet they’ll never make it.”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together, still going strong
You’re still the one…

Where do you go after everything is lost? Death in the air, and a night that never ends. And yet, here we are, weapons in hand, nothing but our courage and our love against all chaos and despair. As long as we’re together, nothing can touch us. We survive. We return.

Together-1

You learn to enjoy the little pleasures, like an improvised meal on our new makeshift kitchen, created by The Roawenwood exclusively for the Remnant Dark Days event. The build and the textures are so realistic, I can almost smell the slightly charred sausages he’s cooking. You can find your own at the Remnant until December 10th.

I smile at him and wipe my greasy hands on the rough skirt of my Nocturnal Prodigy dress, designed by Silvan Moon for the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, this round with the best of cyber punk, space/futuristic, and post-apocalyptic. The fit is great, the rigging is superb as usual, and the wonderful textures remind me of wool and rough cotton, after weeks of dusty wind. You still have a couple of days to go get yours.

Together-2

Here we watch each others’ backs by the super cool Watchdog Watchtower, also by Roawenwood. The photo was actually taken at the stunning Roawenwood main store sim.

We’re brave, we’re young, and we’re beautiful, even with the dense, hostile air, and the dirt on our faces. Our beauty comes from 7 Deadly S{k}ins; my handsome Zero wears Judas in Caramel, and I wear Tyna in Coconut, which you can still find at The Chapter 4 until the end of November (hurry!).

Together-3

Ain’t nothing better
We beat the odds together
I’m glad we didn’t listen
Look at what we would be missing

Quotes: You’re still the one, by Shania Twain.

Electric Barbarella

Standard
Electric Barbarella

The way you look
The way you move
The sounds you’re making
In Ultrachrome, latex, and steel

It could be a galaxy far, far away, it could be millennia away from today, in hectic worlds made of steel, chrome, and fantasy.

I fell through the rabbit hole and landed at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which this round is presenting us with the best of cyber punk, space/futuristic, and post-apocalyptic themed creations in Second Life. My powerfully sensual warriors today are wearing some great loot that you can win at Stargazer gachas, all part of the Vega-6TC collection, all fitmesh for the Maitreya Lara body.

Cyber 1

One of the rare items you can win is this glorious skin, emulating the metallic surface of the outfit, with Omega appliers. I wear it in the image above with the Metropolis set. In the image below, I’m wearing the Nebula set, and for that deep purple tone I chose the Psira skin, which you can find as a gift at the current round of Genre.

Cyber 2

I plug you in
Dim the lights
Electric Barbarella
Your perfect skin
Plastic kiss
Electric Barbarella

They call me The Wild Rose

Standard

On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I’d seen
I said, “Do you know where the wild roses grow,
So sweet and scarlet and free?”

Bavarian 1

She pricked her finger with one of the thorns, but her young heart is thumping so hard, she can hardly notice. The wind plays with the folds of her beautiful Giddi dress, by Les Encantades, beautifully crafted as exclusive for the November round of We  RP. The fabrics evoke the softness of cotton on the blouse, the richness of leather in the corset, and charming designs on the long skirts.

For this enamoured maiden, I could not think of a better face than the lovely Magda skin, from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Designer Showcase until the end of November. Her adorable, young features and natural-looking eyebrows bring out her emotions, and the innocence of her first love.

Bavarian 2

On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist

Quotes: “Where the Wild Roses Grow”, by Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue.

Bring me her heart

Standard
Bring me her heart

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn…

I was once the most beautiful, the fairest of them all. Every day that goes by, this wretched reflection of mine shows me a new line, a new spot, the youth fading away from my face, slowly but relentlessly. I observe them, I touch them, and I loathe them, my lonely mind also fading away in a fantasy of eternal youth, of some prodigious magic that could keep me forever young, forever beautiful.

Mirror Mirror 2

My tribute to aging Queen Grimhilde wears a beautiful creation from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, called North in the Snow tone. I added subtle wrinkles made by Izzie’s, and she’s still a ravishing woman. I will add the original vendor photo (without the wrinkles) with the credits at the bottom. My jewelry is one of the latest creations by Zuri Rayna, the Tear Drop collection, on sale for a few more days.

Take her far into the forest, to a secluded glade…
… and there, you will kill her.
But to make doubly sure you do not fail…
… bring back her heart.

Mirror Mirror 1

My desperate queen could only be wearing the exquisite Queen Grimhilde gown, by Silvan Moon Designs, which you can find exclusively at Enchantment (as you may have guessed, the theme this round is Snow White) until the end of the month. I chose to honor the classic Disney version of Grimhilde combining the purple dress with the black overskirt -Maitreya version.
