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.

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.

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…

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.
