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.

dream 3

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.

dream 1

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…

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…

Prost!

Standard
Prost!
Tam pro papa quam pro rege      To the Pope as to the king
bibunt omnes sine lege.                they all drink without restraint.
Bibit hera, bibit herus,                  The mistress drinks, the master drinks,
bibit miles, bibit clerus,                the soldier drinks, the priest drinks,
bibit ille, bibit illa,                         the man drinks, the woman drinks,
bibit servus cum ancilla               the servant drinks with the maid…

Raise that mug and bury your mouth into the foam, feel the refreshing taste of the cold beer treat your body and spirit. Stand up and sing an old tavern song, let your feet stomp on the floor to your happy rhythm…

dirndl-1

Yes, yes, I know Oktoberfest was like two months ago. But I’m wearing a Dirndl. Not just any Dirndl, this happens to be the most beautiful Dirndl I saw in SL so far. This is the last wonder created by Silvan Moon for the present round of Enchantment (ends tomorrow!): the Woodcutter’s Daughter Dirndl. Let me sing its praises and toast to it.

dirndl-3

Realistic, historically/culturally accurate, and perfectly rigged for classic avatars and Maitreya friendly. The richness and details of the textures contribute to make it look fantastic, while it moves with your avatar’s animations just as real fabrics would. It’s available in several colors.

dirndl-2

I can’t say enough how much I love this Dirndl, so if you still didn’t go to Enchantment, drop everything and head over there before they close. It ends tomorrow!

I will come with fire and sword

“A woman must needs piss twice as hard, if she hopes to rule.
And if that woman should happen to be small…”
-Rohanne Webber (The Sworn Sword, by G. R. R. Martin)

Too young, too small, too pretty to be the infamous Red Widow. Her freckles took over the fantasies of the young brave knights and toyed with their desires, but her deep green eyes fired a stubborn defiance and power beyond her size.

rohanne-2

She wears the sumptuous Tears of Liliana gown, the latest creation by Silvan Moon, which you can still find exclusively -and reduced!- at We ❤ RP for another week.

Like a good Webber, my lady is wearing the splendid Arachne Goddess Elite necklace, one of the cool Halloween specials you can find at Zuri Jewelry.

rohanne-3

I’ll bet she’s freckled all over…

The pictures were taken at the Highgarden & The Reach – Game of Thrones Roleplay, which I recently discovered and plan to continue exploring in the future. It’s true that my lady is from House Webber, but Lord Tyrell said it was ok to use his throne room.

I am the who when you call who’s there

Standard
I am the who when you call who’s there

I am the “who” when you call, “Who’s there?”
I am the wind blowing through your hair
I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

Everybody scream! October arrived to Second Life, and while my town is already pushing Christmas pastries, at the other side of the pond the pumpkin tones rule through the grid. In the spirit of giving our home a rather eerie redecoration, I took a joyride at the Gacha Guardians.

steam-3

Zero named this scene “Even scarecrows can die”… clearly it was outnumbered!

Anachron presents a new super awesome collection of Jack-o’-lanterns, in different colors and shapes. The ghost and scarecrow stands are the rares, and they can be used with any of the pumpkin heads.

In the Gacha Guardians, if you play 10 times on a particular machine, you will receive a special gift. For Anachron, it’s a super cute witch stand, with hat and all!

steam-1

I’m wearing the Gift of the Guardians from Wicca’s Wardrobe, the Tabitha Necklace (which matches my super cool Tabitha outfit, complete with arm bands, bracers, boots, hat, and even the eyepatch), and my Steampunk wings are the GotG from Ersch.

steam-4

Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Quotes: This is Halloween, by Danny Elfman

Who will love, who will betray

Standard
Who will love, who will betray

Speak to me, speak again
Show me the will of the gods
Who will betray me?
Who will love me?

Aritimi, speak to me. Laran, speak to me. Erus, speak to me. Let me see the paths that you have traced for us, let the twisted message of these entrails show me your will.

druidess-2

Frowning while she examines the liver, the haruspex is looking for signs and omens of the wills of the gods. She’s wearing the Druidess Hooded Dress that Anachron designed exclusively for the Spoonful of Sugar, an event to benefit Médecins sans Frontiers (Doctors without Borders). It’s the LAST day!

druidess-3

I chose to wear my own hair, but there is a version with hair (and a hair color HUD) included. Nicely shaped and with beautiful textures, 100% of these sales will benefit MSF.

The Table of the Haruspex is a wonderful set exclusively created by The Roawenwood for the Twisted Hunt, my mostest favoritest event in Second Life. The theme for the Fall 2016 round of the Twisted Hunt is Divination. This table is everything. It includes an animation that makes you examine the liver, perfect for RP (the knife in my hand is not included).

druidess-1

The glowing spirits from beyond are glowing on the Twisted Druid Circle, a wonderful creation by Sweet Revolutions, also a prize from the Twisted Hunt.

druidess-4

The haruspex is also wearing Zuri Rayna’s new edition of an old classic: the Night Sky Set in light gold and dark rubies, falling like delicate blood droplets around my neck. This set is incredibly reduced for a whole week at Zuri Jewelry main store!
