Queen of two worlds

Standard

Me dá a chave que abre esse portão, teu coração
Vem… a lua cheia nos chama pra rua
A minha vida parou no tempo pra te esperar,
Minha amada princesa

Give me the key that opens that gate, your heart
Come… the full moon calls us to the streets
My life stopped in time to wait for you
My beloved princess


They say that Chica was the most beautiful woman that João Fernandes, the young new governor of Tijuco, had ever seen. His passion defied the scandal, the frowns and the whispers. Hated and feared, envied and praised, all bow now to queen Chica.

Xica

This fascinating love story inspired the TV series Xica da Silva. In a scene, after some time dressing up with the best Baroque gowns that the diamonds of Minas Gerais could buy, she chose to don sheer, delicate silks on her voluptuous body, so that her lover João could see her beauty at all times.

Here she waits for him at the door in her exquisite Lady Penelope gown set, an exclusive creation by Silvan Moon for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The complete sets include a lovely soft gown, but I chose to wear the sheer pieces alone. The stunning jewelry set is the new partial mesh version of Zuri’s Czarina collection, no less than any queen would deserve.

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

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…

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

I don’t wanna feel blue

Standard

Bad girl, drunk by six
Kissing someone else’s lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I’m not happy when I act this way

Neon lights, smoke, and noise, all the human smells, fake smiles and more noise… perhaps that will muffle the whispers I don’t want to hear, the thoughts that roam my mind until I drown them away, until I dance them away, until I fuck them away.
Bad girl 2Let’s spin once again on my furiously high Trinity shoes, by Renegade. Their sinuous Gothic texture shines under the flickering lights as I fall. I laugh, I light another cigarette, and I keep dancing while the world swirls around me.

I close my eyes, I almost see myself. No sweat on my face, no make up, just the flawless natural beauty of my Katie skin, an exclusive creation  by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Designer Showcase. I could not resist the sombre beauty of Zuri Jewelry‘s Only You Rose in this dark new edition, currently on sale as part of Zuri’s Steals & Deals.

Bad girl 1

Is it me or you that I’m afraid of
I tell myself I’ll show you what I’m made of
Can’t bring myself to let you go

Days when you used to love me

Standard
Days when you used to love me

Over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Once when you walked beside me
That inconceivable, that unbelievable world we knew
When we two were in love

I still remember that night, as vivid in my eyes as it was then… the sound of your voice, your laughter, the sparks in your eyes, and that unforgettable, intense cherry-red smile. I was under the spell of your charming little freckles, and the sweet maple tone of your skin…

Vintage 3

This is a very special edition of the brand new Naomy skin, the latest creation by 7 Deadly S{k}ins exclusively for the Skin Fair. This beauty was designed for LAQ heads, and even though you can wear it on any Omega-friendly head, I simply had to try it on my lovely LAQ Neve. I chose the new skin tone, Maple, with adorable freckles. The cherry-red lipstick is one of my favorites from 7DS, Clarity (at main store).

And every bright neon sign turned into stars
And the sun and the moon seemed to be ours…

Vintage 2

The colors on this old photo have long since faded… perhaps by looking at it so much over the time, or perhaps because memories are also fading slowly. A sentence you said, the taste of bourbon on your lips, and that sensual gown, tight on your figure…

This is the luxurious “Spring in Paris” bridal gown, created by the talented dream team Silvan Moon exclusively for The Trunk Show, open until March 18th. It has an incredible timeless beauty, vintage air in the exquisite texture and the pearls on the chest. It’s fitted for classic and mesh bodies, and you can find it in several lovely soft pastel tones.

Vintage 1

Each road that we took turned into gold
But the dream was too much for you to hold…

In other words, I love you…

Standard
In other words, I love you…

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars…

Those were stressful days. We had a new home, our first home together, and all our days were consumed trying to find the perfect kitchen, the right curtains, the color of the walls. We were exhausted. But he was happy, oh, so happy. He hummed and sang “Fly me to the moon” over and over in the most romantic “ear worm” ever. The night we finally moved in, we dressed up and he played the song, in his favorite Sinatra version, and we danced together among all our cardboard boxes.

Valentine 2

I felt like a beautiful diva clad in a sumptuous gown, adorned with this gorgeous new Dahlia collection by Zuri Jewelry, while I turned and danced in his arms. A couple of years later, we held each other on our first wedding dance to this song, whispering the lyrics while our family and friends watched us with watery happy eyes.

Mushy reminiscing aside, I wanted to recreate this diva in love. I chose the lovely Lumi skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at the Designer Circle for a couple more days, with the complete body applier for moles and freckles (from the main store).

Valentine 1

I added the 7DS Juicy lipstick in the tone prune, and Izzie’s special Valentine’s make up. Now I’m ready to keep dancing in the arms of the man I love.

Zero, you are my love in real life, in Second Life, and in all my lives. Every twisted path in my life led me to you, and I love you always.

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
