Jorōgumo

Standard

“The piercing radiant moon,
The storming of poor June,
All the life running through her hair…”

As the moon slowly dances above, your spirit drifts away in the grim embrace of my webs. Soon you will be yet another youth who never came back, so that I can remain alive another night, slave of the life force that I must forever consume to survive.

JorōgumoRavishing beauty or dreadful spider demon, Jorōgumo lays her webs to lure her next prey with her Promise of Sanctuary… ironic name for this splendid gown created by Silvan Moon. Meticulous craft, luxurious fabrics, and exquisite fit, this gown is ready to lure you into Jorōgumo’s trap.

Her alluring face is the new Emmy skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, an exclusive for Designer Showcase, available in several skin tones and also browless versions.

Zuri - Lilith Elite -FIXED-

This dazzling blend of spiders, roses and jewels is the Lilith head-dress by Zuri Jewelry, Elite version… not available yet, but will be very, very soon…

Approaching guiding light,
Our shallow years in fright,
Dreams are made winding through my head

Behind the door

Standard

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there? ‘Cause I’m the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Bride 1You will be here, I know that much. All the rest is noise, the flowers, the intricate bejeweled gown, the dazzling jewelry, the elaborated plans… it’s all beautiful, but nothing more than a pretty background. This is our story. Come beside me, and speak the words that make my demons run.

Bride 2

Come lay beside me, this won’t hurt, I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she’ll never love again
She lay beside me but she’ll be there when I’m gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes, she’ll be there when I’m gone

Dis-moi, Josephine

Standard
Dis-moi, Josephine

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds all day long…

She’s all feathers and luscious pearls, the most exotic midnight glam. Behind her dazzling smile, a dangerous secret is hidden by a song. Her voice enchants everyone in the room, a true spell cast by her playful eyes. She dances all their fantasies away, swiping their careless confidences away, while they’re too entranced to know that they’re the enemy.

Fabulous like no other, the Black Pearl plays a dangerous game. Today she fascinates the troops clad in her magnificent Miss Fisher Gown, designed by the amazing Silvan Moon Designs for the upcoming round of the Vintage Fair (June 8th to 25th). The fabric is super luxurious and the rigging feels incredibly authentic. It will be available in 6 colors.

Adored by a legion of admirers, the Creole goddess wears the glorious Charlotte pearls collection by Zuri Jewelry, with matching ring and bracelet. The Elite menu allows my to choose between several combinations of gems, metals, and pearls for a unique look.

Josephine 1

The music continues at the Twisted Summer RFL Sale, named Sockdolanger and themed after the Roaring 20’s. Nothing more fitting for the Black Venus than the fabulous Josephine Baker headpiece by Sweet Revolutions, and the Bento Satin Gloves by Maraschino (formerly Anachron). The event runs until June 30th.

The silence seems unnatural after the roaring energy of the party. Nothing but the swish of her garments and the subtle rustle of her magical pen, scratching stolen secrets between the lines of her music sheets.

Sleepy time gal
When all your dancin’ is through
Sleepy time gal
I’ll find a cottage for you…

Exactly like you

Standard

I know why I waited
Know why I’ve been blue
I’ve been waiting each day
For someone exactly like you

Seven years ago, on a beautiful summer night between German holidays just like now, I saw him for the first time. He walked on the dance floor and I remember thinking he was the most handsomest man I had seen. Only a few minutes later, he was dancing with me, the first of many nights that I would feel the world disappear in his arms.

Dance 1
Today we dance again, he gets lost in the sensuality of my Clairy gown, created by Witch)O(Craft exclusively for the Dazzle event, which runs until May 25th. He runs a hand through my back, playing with my Zuri Jewelry pearls, and exploring the curves of my new Cherry Blossom tattoo, also by Witch)O(Craft, which you can find at The Avenue until May 22nd.

He introduced me to Second Life, and he also took me to my first visit to 7 Deadly S{k}ins, a favorite since life before mesh. Tonight the lights shine bright on my Seventeen skin, an exclusive creation for Ultra, and his handsome Judas skin. I will never forget that first night, that first dance… that feeling of the imminent first kiss… he’s the love of all my lives.

Dance 2

You make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
Baby you make me understand
These foolish little dreams I’m dreaming
And schemes I’m scheming

Blame it on me

Standard

Now that you’re gone,
I feel like myself again.
Grieving the things I can’t repair and willing…

Paternoster 2

In nomine Patris… I believe I still remember a prayer, maybe it’s not too late to be saved. I feel the weight of many worlds, even the fabric of my sumptuous Lucrezia gown seems to carry some sorrow. This beautiful dress was created for the Fantasy Faire by Les Encantades. The mists have already taken away the mystic Fairelands, but the magic remains. You will find it soon at the main store.

The perfect complement was this amazing Isabella d’Este hairstyle from Oblivion from last round of We ❤️ RP. I love the authenticity in these designs. I had a little fun putting them together, as Isabella was Lucrezia’s rival for a long time… but I digress.

Paternoster 1

Lacrymosa dies illa… She lights a candle with all the strength of her wishes, almost as expecting something mystical to happen. The light flickers on the gems of her Sweet Elegance cross-shaped necklace, one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry, reflecting on her warm maple-tone Yoga skin, created by 7 Deadly S{k}ins exclusively for eBento.

Blame it on me,
Set your guilt free.
Nothing can hold you back now.

Believe

Standard

I believe in love, it’s all we got
Love has no boundaries, costs nothing to touch
War makes money, cancer sleeps
Curled up in my father and that means something to me

Dragon fairy 1
All kinds of creatures deserve to love, all kinds of creatures deserve to be loved. Others say that she does not belong in this place, in the company of a monster. They think my claws were made only to tear and destroy, and don’t imagine I’m capable of tenderness. But for her, I have learned to sing, to enjoy the soft moonlight glowing on her delicate wings, to be happy… to love.

Dragon fairy 2

The Fantasy Faire in Second Life means different things for many people, but at its core, it’s about love. It’s also about beauty, talent, and our passion for fantasy, undeniably put to the service of a cause of love, Relay for Life (RFL). RFL of SL is a part of American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life fundraising. Help more families find hope for more fantasy tales and happily ever afters… or at least to help them battle that silent enemy within.

Let the fairies guide you to the Fantasy Faire… it will be open for a few more days!

Without love I wouldn’t believe
In anything that lives and breathes
[…]
Without love I wouldn’t believe
I couldn’t believe in you
And I wouldn’t believe in me
Without love

I believe in love

I am half sick of shadows

Standard
She look’d down to Camelot. 
Out flew the web and floated wide; 
The mirror crack’d from side to side; 
‘The curse is come upon me,’ cried 
       The Lady of Shalott. 

Shalott 1 - mirror

A mirror shard barely misses the delicate dew of her Junia skin, one of the latest creations from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, found exclusively at The Secret Affair until May 5th. Her Spellbound jewelry set, one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry, reflects the million lights from the mirror. Her fate is chosen.

For ere she reach’d upon the tide 
The first house by the water-side, 
Singing in her song she died, 
       The Lady of Shalott.

Shalott 3

The waves play with the folds of this sumptuous gown named after her, Lady of Shalott, by Silvan Moon Designs. Fitted for mesh and standards bodies and in several colors, this beauty will be available in the Aetherea sim, at the Fantasy Faire (April 19th to 29th).

The wonderful Faire is just around the corner, and I’m eager to see what fantasies will bloom from the talented creators who participate. This will be my first time blogging for the Faire, and I can hardly wait to drink inspiration from the Fairelands.

Under tower and balcony, 
By garden wall and gallery, 
A pale, pale corpse she floated by, 
Deadcold, between the houses high, 
       Dead into tower’d Camelot.

Shalott 2
