Glimpse of midnight

Standard

The moon shines white and silent
On the mist, which, like a tide
Of some enchanted ocean,
O’er the wide marsh doth glide,
Spreading its ghost-like billows
Silently far and wide.

Moon demonDo you hear the eerie murmur in the dark, perhaps on the water? It might be the wind… or not the wind at all.

All things look strange and mystic,
The very bushes swell
And take wild shapes and motions,
As if beneath a spell…

I don’t belong here alone

Standard

Everything is so dark
And I know there’s something wrong
But I can’t turn the light on

Why 1Some days the sunshine is strong enough to reach me, but what breaks my heart is how I keep you trapped here in the shadows with me. I dream that you run free and the wind is yours, but I can’t breathe if you leave.

Save yourself
Don’t look back
Tearing us apart until it’s all gone
The only world I’ve ever known sleeps beneath the waves

Also wanna have fun

Standard

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh girls, they wanna have fun

In that fuzzy universe that we call RL, she lives at the other side of the world, and we never met. However, she has been a part of my life for years, always there for me on the other side of her screen. She’s my shopping buddy, occasional blogging model, parcel roomie, and always a good friend.

Pillow fight 1

We love to go hunting together, and then we open our loot and have some fun with it. The cute and very sexy little dress we’re rocking here is the Lucrezia, by Witch)O(Craft, and it’s part of the Hunt for your Inner Slut. Deliciously sheer, it displays my Asha tattoo, also by WC, an exclusive for The Expo Fair.

Beyond the fun, the shopping, the parties… we talk. We can’t be there in person, but whenever I need an ear to vent, she’s there for me, like we’re two regular pals, sharing a snack and staying up late. Today we’re also skin buddies, both by 7 Deadly S{k}ins. She wears the lovely Calamity with face moles in Caramel (right), and I’m looking pretty in my Tatum in Maple (left), exclusively created for the Ultra event.

When you read this, dear Chanty, thank you for being a friend all these years. Here’s a cupcake toast to more good times together.

Taste the poison

Standard

I can feel you calling me
I can see the cracks between these walls
But this pain
I choke on the words as they rise in me
To survive, I lock down

Music and laughter fill the air, a siren wails in the distance, someone yells something to the bartender… my body moves to some rhythm by inertia perhaps, while the blaring chaos around me muffles all my thoughts. Good. Some things are best unsaid, even if it’s just with the voice inside my mind.

Smoking 2

Cigarette smoke and sweat drench the soft cotton of my Witchy top, one of the latest creations by Witch)O(Craft, released at Suicide Dollz and soon at the main store. I can feel it crawling on my Muriel skin, smokey eye shadow and all, a beautiful creation by 7 Deadly S{k}ins that you can find at the Vintage Fair.

I need fresh air, or perhaps I really need to poison my breath in solitude. Maybe the silence won’t be enough to awake the dark thoughts. I let my Sierra heels by Renegade carry me outside. You can find these ravishing shoes at the Good Vibes event.

Smoking 1

Say the words
I can’t face the world
If I could say the words
Everything would be broken still
We are broken

Quote: “Lockdown”, by Amy Lee.

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.

Josephine 2

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

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

Everything’s got a moral

Standard

“You’re thinking about something, my dear, and that makes you forget to talk. I can’t tell you just now what the moral of that is, but I shall remember it in a bit.”
“Perhaps it hasn’t one,” Alice ventured to remark.
“Tut, tut, child!” said the Duchess. “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.” 
― Lewis CarrollAlice’s adventures in Wonderland

Duchess 1

I went down the proverbial rabbit hole all the way to Enchantment, and lost myself in the fascination of Lewis Carroll’s fantasy. My version of the Duchess is wearing the amazing Iracebeth gown by Silvan Moon Designs, inspired by the Queen of Hearts. It’s available in several colors, and of course the iconic black/red. The tea cup chairs behind her are the beautiful new creation by The Roawenwood. I plan to showcase them again, but I could not resist showing them off.

The Duchess’ stern face is the new Clover skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, created for the Designer Showcase. I chose the browless version included in the pack, and added wrinkles by Izzie’s from the last Skin Fair.

Duchess 2

I beat him when he sneezes;
For he can thoroughly enjoy
The pepper when he pleases!”
