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.

Fumando espero

Standard

Fumar es un placer genial, sensual
fumando espero
al hombre a quien yo quiero
tras los cristales
de alegres ventanales

Smoking is a wonderful, sensuous pleasure
Smoking, I wait
for the man I love
behind the glasses
of gaily-colored windows.

Sunset-2
I don’t smoke, but I used to. Safe within the mists of the past, there’s my old love for smoking, my lost family life, the taste of dulce de leche, and the sensuous tempo of tango. I don’t miss smoking, but sometimes I long for the memories brought by a spiral of smoke tearing up my breath.

Sunset-1

I found my cozy and warm ensemble at Uber this month; the lovely pullover is by neve, and this awesome hairstyle -scarf included- is by Shi. The beautiful skin I wear today is one of the latest creations from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will find at the Sad November event SOON (it starts November 11th, I will update with the LM as soon as it opens). It’s called Madelon, and I’m wearing the Coconut tone, with beauty marks. I wanted to wait until the event started to show it to you, but how could I resist those amazing eyebrows?

Sunset-3

My facial piercing is one of hopefully many more creations by my supercalifragilisticexpialidocious husband, very soon available under his new Drunken Brokkr line. They will come rigged and fitted for Catya and Daniel heads (by Catwa) initially, and soon for other heads as well. In the meantime, you can check out his other stuff here or here.

Queen of all nights

Standard
Queen of all nights

Once written in the stars 
A pathway set in stone 
A candle in the night 
To guide your way back home 

I’m the last of the Horai, the Hours, goddesses of time and fate. After the sweet nymphs of evening finish their dance of golden sunset, I reign. I rule in the darkness and quiet of the night, mine is the song of the nocturne creatures, the rustle of the wind, the peaceful breathing of sleeping babies, and joyful sighs of sleepless lovers.

Chronos-2

My Hora is wearing the beautiful Gwen dress, created by Les Encantades exclusively for the present round of Genre. I’m wearing the Maitreya version, but it’s also fitted for other mesh and classic avatars. You can find it in several colors at Genre until November 14th. It’s lovely and sensual, as it befits a goddess.

Chronos-1

While we silently observe our goddess, I wanted to show you my incredible new skin from Fallen Gods, just because I’m so happy with it. It’s called Chronos, and it was the prize designed for everyone who participated in the contest organized for the Fallen Gods anniversary celebrations. A massive thank you!

Chronos-3

Then somewhere in your memory 
Calling from afar It’s daring you to see 
What it is that’s written in the stars…

Rose without a thorn

Standard
Rose without a thorn

Are you like the others, so quick to judge
And for this the queen must fall
Was it my heart that doth betrayed me
‘Cause I loved more than one man?

I died a queen, and they said I would have rather died the wife of another. I’m not sure what I would have rather died, or lived, or dreamt. I died before my bones were even fully grown, and all my dreams fell with the thump of the axe on my neck. But my dreams were never truly mine. “Non autre volonté que la sienne“, no other will but the king’s.

Kathryn 1

My inspiration today is the tragedy of Catherine Howard, fifth wife of the infamous Henry VIII. Some say her terrified ghost still runs through Hampton Court, as she did the day of her arrest (the day after Halloween). Here she wears the Belladonna dress by Dreaming Thicket, one of the new “branches” of the store that was Anachron. You can still find it for a few more days at We  RP.

Her lovely face is my new Liva skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Cosmetic Fair. I chose one of the newest tones created by Izara, called “Cloud”. Her lovely tiara is the Tiara of the Mist, by Zuri Jewelry.

Kathryn 2

Truth within the writings of a letter
Signed and sealed poor Catherine Howard’s fate…

I died a queen, and I can’t remember how it felt to be a child. All I ever was, was someone else’s desire, and a pawn. I would like to curse you all, I would curse Mannox and his perverted hands on my 13 year-old body, Dereham and his husband/wife game when I finally thought I was free. I would curse the rotten old black-hearted king who sent me to die… but I couldn’t even do that. Culpepper was right. I may have been, indeed, a little sweet fool.

All that was me is gone

Standard
All that was me is gone

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lass that’s gone!

He calls me his queen, and his love, and he pretends not to hear me crying myself to sleep every night. My voice is raw from calling out my sweet mother’s name, then every god in Olympus, and any hero who could come to my rescue. My eyes are cloudy from the gloom and the permanent darkness of the underworld, this dreadful cage where I must now dwell.

Pers-2

My disheartened Persephone is wearing the beautiful “Spirit of Hope” gown, a lovely design by Silvan Moon, created exclusively for Gotham Island, a wonderful fundraiser event. The proceeds will be donated to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. You can find this and more until October 31st.

Persephone’s lovely face is the beautiful Lisa skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the current round of eBento. I chose the freckled version in this warm walnut tone. The jewelry set I wear is from the Sugar Drop collection, one of Zuri Jewelry’s latest creations, combined with an adorable Zahra floral crown, fit for the daughter of Demeter.

Pers-1

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.

Searching for my sins

Standard

La tierra muerta, como un ojo ciego,
Seguirá andando siempre sin sosiego,
Pero en la sombra, a tientas, solitaria,
Sin un canto, ni un ¡ay!, ni una plegaria.

A dead world like a blinded eye,
Restless forever moves through the sky,
But fumbling in shadow and all alone
Not a song nor a cry nor a prayer intones.

Mary Tudor 2

I was born the Queen’s daughter, resented by my father for not being the prince an heir that he wished for. By his whims, I’ve suffered through downfalls and brief flashes of grace, I saw him drive my mother to wither and die alone, I saw others rise and tragically fall. Now I am the queen, and the most unhappy woman on this sterile Earth.

Today I drove my inspiration from one of the darkest moments in the life of Mary I of England, first daughter of the infamous Henry VIII. After a psychological pregnancy ended her hopes of having a child and heir of her own, her beloved husband left her with the excuse of fighting Spanish wars.

Mary Tudor 3

Here she cries to the god she’s always loved and defended, in an effort to understand what her sins are. She wears the majestic “The Queen’s Daughter” gown, created by Silvan Moon designs exclusively for the October round of We  RP. The head piece is included, and it’s available in different colors. It’s absolutely exquisite, wonderfully rigged, and ready for Maitreya, Slink, or standard SL bodies.

The gorgeous jewelry that my melancholy queen Mary wears is by Zuri Jewelry: one is a complete classic, the Czarina Jewels here in the Elite version (metal/gem/pearl changing menu), and a new release: the Filigree Ring. It’s not fitted or rigged, but it’s already located on the ring finger, for Bento hand users.

Mary Tudor 1

The head I’m wearing today is the new Kiana Bento head by Genesis Lab, a most generous and adorable group gift. I added some wrinkles (Omega appliers by Izzie’s), to better illustrate Queen Mary in the situation I was portraying, lonely, depressed and in pain, thinking that god was punishing her for tolerating “heretics” in her realm.

Sola, con sus criaturas preferidas
En el seno cansadas y dormidas.
(Madre que marcha aún con el veneno
de los hijos ya muertos en el seno.)

Alone, with the creatures it preferred,
In its breast worn out, sleep interred.
(A mother moving on with venom pressed
from her children, dead now, in her breast.)
