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).

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.)
