Always together

Standard
Always together

They said, “I bet they’ll never make it.”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together, still going strong
You’re still the one…

Where do you go after everything is lost? Death in the air, and a night that never ends. And yet, here we are, weapons in hand, nothing but our courage and our love against all chaos and despair. As long as we’re together, nothing can touch us. We survive. We return.

Together-1

You learn to enjoy the little pleasures, like an improvised meal on our new makeshift kitchen, created by The Roawenwood exclusively for the Remnant Dark Days event. The build and the textures are so realistic, I can almost smell the slightly charred sausages he’s cooking. You can find your own at the Remnant until December 10th.

I smile at him and wipe my greasy hands on the rough skirt of my Nocturnal Prodigy dress, designed by Silvan Moon for the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, this round with the best of cyber punk, space/futuristic, and post-apocalyptic. The fit is great, the rigging is superb as usual, and the wonderful textures remind me of wool and rough cotton, after weeks of dusty wind. You still have a couple of days to go get yours.

Together-2

Here we watch each others’ backs by the super cool Watchdog Watchtower, also by Roawenwood. The photo was actually taken at the stunning Roawenwood main store sim.

We’re brave, we’re young, and we’re beautiful, even with the dense, hostile air, and the dirt on our faces. Our beauty comes from 7 Deadly S{k}ins; my handsome Zero wears Judas in Caramel, and I wear Tyna in Coconut, which you can still find at The Chapter 4 until the end of November (hurry!).

Together-3

Ain’t nothing better
We beat the odds together
I’m glad we didn’t listen
Look at what we would be missing

Singing only for your eyes

Standard
Singing only for your eyes

Manhã, tão bonita manhã                       Morning, such a beautiful morning
Na vida, uma nova canção                      In life, a new song
Cantando só teus olhos                            Singing only for your eyes
Teu riso, tuas mãos…                                Your smile, your hands…

Because there will be a day when you will return…

At last, the Spring remembered this cold corner of the world, and a playful sun poured joy and warmth all around.

Ninfa-2

It’s time to leave those heavy garments behind and walk on this beautiful silky, flowy, and delicate Rhapsody gown. This is the last creation of Silvan Moon, found exclusively at We ❤ RP until the end of April. Fitted for Slink and Maitreya and available in a few sweet tones, this light dress will be reduced during the event.

My jewelry comes from -you guessed it- Zuri Jewelry. The adorable floral tiara that I wear is the Elite version of the Nahla Floral Crown (not available yet, but coming soon!). It allows you to choose the color of the pearls and metals. Here I chose the same Blue Fire Opal of my Tender Heart collection, also by Zuri.

Ninfa-1

Das cordas do meu violão                            From my guitar strings
Que só teu amor procurou                           That only wanted your love
Vem uma voz                                                  Comes a voice
Falar dos beijos perdidos                             Talking about kisses
Nos lábios teus                                               Lost in your lips

My heart sings, joy has return on the morning of your love…

Quotes: “Manhã de Carnaval”, by Antônio Maria (translated by me).

Whoever you are

Standard
Whoever you are

– Quem é você, diga logo…                            – Who are you, tell me now…
– Que eu quero saber o seu jogo…               – I want to play your game…
– Que eu quero morrer no seu bloco…       – I want to get lost in your block…
– Que eu quero me arder no seu fogo.        – I want to burn in your fire…

Masked lovers search for each other while the music comes alive, playing the guessing game between drinks and dances. “I play the tambourine”, hints the tall stranger. “I prefer the guitar”, she playfully answers from behind the feathers of her mask.

carnival

The Carnival is a vibrant, wonderful celebration in the tropical lands where my roots used to lay. Tonight I celebrate it with style, wearing this sumptuous gown made by Silvan Moon. It’s called the “Fairy Godmother”, and you can still find it for a few more days exclusively at Enchantment. A dream of fantasy, this gown also includes a delicate pair of wings, which I’m not wearing today.

carnival-2

I chose a special jewelry set from the fantasy collections of Zuri Jewelry, the Dark Faith, Elite version (gem change, metal change). I liked how the feathers complemented my mask, and the delicate flexi parts subtly followed the pace of my dance.

carnival-3

Mas é Carnaval!                                                 But it’s Carnival
Não me diga mais quem é você!                   don’t tell me who you are anymore!
Amanhã tudo volta ao normal.                     tomorrow everything goes back to normal
Deixa a festa acabar,                                         let the party end,
Deixa o barco correr.                                         let the boat sail
Deixa o dia raiar, que hoje eu sou                 let the sun rise, and tonight I am
Da maneira que você me quer…                     any way you want me to be…

My smile still stays on

Standard
My smile still stays on

The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

It’s the art of make-believe. Let me disguise reality under a thick layer of virtual happiness, and drown every thought with the immortal sweetness of chocolate. Ah, let me live like this forever, and never wake up.

This lovely cart of sugary comfort is the latest creation by The Roawenwood, which you can find exclusively at Draftsman – an SL architectural event. It’s impossible to look at those delicious pastries without craving for them.

The event runs until February 9th, and there you can find this refreshment cart, and also these beautiful vintage parlor chairs in two different colors: teal or rose.

diva-2

I love the versatility of this furniture. You can use them to decorate a Victorian parlor, a modern home, or anything else your imagination calls for. The chairs come with a few smooth animations for male and female avatars.

I’m also showing a little teaser of LaZe’s new creation, the vanity mirror/dresser I’m leaning on. I try practicing my smiles, but alas, Second Life mirrors never smile back. Show must go on.

diva-1

I guess I’m learning, I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free
The show must go on.

Nessun dorma

Standard
Nessun dorma

Nessun dorma…                              No one must sleep…
Tu pure, o Principessa,                  You, too, o Princess,
nella tua fredda stanza                in your cold room
guardi le stelle che tremano       look at the stars, that tremble
d’amore e di speranza!                with love and with hope!

The air feels thin as the princess paces in despair under the moonlight. Nobody was supposed to guess the riddles, nobody can ever have me. And yet, he did. The unknown prince guessed them all, earning her hand in marriage. She begged, she cried, she threatened, and she was granted another chance. Now she’s the one who must solve a riddle. I must find the name of the stranger before dawn, and then he will die just as all the others before him... Or everyone else in Pekin will.

My version of the cruel and beautiful princess Turandot is wearing one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry: the Snowflake Elite Choker, to go with her heart of ice. This lovely piece offers you a menu with 10 different gem textures for two sets of gems, and 2 metals to choose from. Here is your carriage to the Zuri Jewelry main store.

Principessa di morte!           Princess of death!
Principessa di gelo!              Princess of ice!
Dal tuo tragico cielo             Come down to earth
scendi giù sulla terra!…       from your tragic heaven!

oqueen-2

Princess Turandot could not obtain the name of the stranger before dawn. As it happens often in operas, there was tragedy and death, there were passionate confessions of love, and her heart melted for the first time in her life. His name is Calaf… No, his name is love. They married. But was that really a happy ending? I guess it depends whom you ask.
