Let her go

Standard

I was down to St. James infirmary, I saw my baby there
She was stretched out on a long white table, 
So sweet, cool and so fair…

alone 1

The moonlight touches softly the delicate threads of the dreamcatcher tattooed on my back, comes down through the dirty glass with ghostly cold fingers, like a magic kiss on my skin. But all the magic is gone. As the night echoes between these naked walls, the nightmares will return.

alone 2

Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be…

Kissed by a rose

Standard

There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain
Baby, to me, you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny
Won’t you tell me, is that healthy, baby?

bath 1

A sultry song, the smell of roses, the warmth of the water on our skins, and the sweet taste of you between my lips… The true epiphany blooms from our passion.

bath 2

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey

Ruler of my heart

Your love is king
Crown you with my heart
Your love is king
Never need to part…

Your voice rings in my mind like that first sip of fresh water that we have long desired. I feel your eyes devouring me, running on my skin, frolicking in every curve and crease, turning my body into a joyful playground.

arualblues 3

Your kisses ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It’s making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me
I’m crying out for more

Arualblues, a princess

Standard

I’m very happy to present to you the new Princess Arualblues collection from Zuri Jewelry. I am honored and touched that Zuri has given my name to this gorgeous creation, which fits so well with my love for medieval/fantasy dress-up in Second Life.

arualblues

 

Five years ago, I became Zuri’s customer, later group member, then store model, flirted with management, and finally settled in my current role as her official blog fiddler. But the best thing about working with Zuri was knowing her. Zuri has been to me a dear pal, a caring mom, a nervous boss, a generous friend… Ours is a friendship forged through long talks, work stress, occasional scuffles, shared laughter, tears on each others’ shoulders, and we’re still here, and for this and everything else, thank you.

The collection will come very soon to the store in various beautiful colors, and matching crowns will also be available. I model a special edition in cobalt blue, my favorite.

Then and now #SecondLifeChallenge

Standard

then&now

Oh, what a ride this was since that September evening back in 2011, my first year in Germany, when this guy I was dating recommended me to join Second life. My virtual début had an important advantage: a long time “insider” who didn’t want his girl looking like a noob, and his wonderful friend Ms. T, who was incredibly generous and patient, and took me shopping to all her favorite places.

In all these years, I’ve been a zombie hunter, a medieval tavern wench, a jewelry model, and a hilarious array of goddesses, demons, mythological creatures, historical ladies, and more. And that guy who first guided me down this mesmerizing rabbit hole is now my partner, my lover, and my husband, in all my lives.

I haven’t kept many photos of my avatar from before 2014, but I always kept this one, taken when I was only 2 months old back in November 2011. I chose to recreate that one, one of the first looks I put together trying to mimic my RL overall look and style. I still own some of the stuff that I’m wearing in that first photo. I never had the heart to get rid of them, like the hoarder that I am, so I will include the credits!

Years later, just as it happened in RL, I became paler because my skin misses the tropical sun, and I lounge by a fireplace because I’m always kinda cold here… I also visibly gained some weight (blame all those delicious German pastries!), and I added my cute little wedding band, and strong nail polish, another hobby that I picked up here in Berlin.

After being so many different versions of me, so many different creatures and dreams, I came back to the me that reminds most of the real me… Thank you, Second Life, for all these years of adventure and entertainment. Thank you, my dear virtual friends, and the ones who also became real through hours of chat, shared laughter and tears. Thank you, my love, Zero Upshaw, for showing me this world and inviting me to live this fantasy with you.
