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.

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…

In your head they are dying

Standard
In your head they are dying

Another mother’s breakin’
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken

Where is all the life I left behind? Where is all the love I bled for? There’s only the echo of my boots, the throbbing of my wounds, and the memories of what will never be.

Back home 1
Heavy and muddy, my armor is one of the latest creations by Anachron, exclusively for The Fantasy Faire. As I mentioned in my previous post, the Fantasy Faire is the coolest event for fantasy lovers, creators, RPers of Second Life, and it’s also for a wonderful cause: helping the work of the American Cancer Society with your purchases and donations.

It’s available in several sizes and colors, includes the boots, and on a very personal note, I love the fact that it actually looks like an armor that is useful in battle, like an armor that was much used in battle.

Back home 2

In your head they’re still fightin’
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head, in your head they are cryin’

Eternally mine

Standard
Eternally mine

The road is narrow and long
When eyes meet eyes
And the feeling is strong
I turn away from the wall
I stumble and fall
But I give you it all

My voice echoes and fades on the dark velvet that surrounds us. I sing for you and for you alone, while your eyes dance on the curve of my shoulder and slides down within the folds of my long draped gown.

Opera 1

This beautiful gown is a poem to finesse and style, and it marks the much expected return of Les Encantades to the world of SL, and what better occasion than the wonderful Fantasy Faire?

Not only is the Fantasy Faire the coolest gathering of awesome fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in SL, but also the occasion to contribute to the American Cancer Society through your purchases or direct donations.

Opera 2

You can find this gown and much more at the Faire until the 30th of April. It’s available in several vibrant colors, compatible with classic and mesh bodies.

Timeless and classic, the Antique Pearls collection by Zuri Jewelry is the perfect touch of sophistication, shining under the dim light of the theatre while I sing for you, only for you.

Opera 3

I am a woman in love
And I’d do anything
To get you into my world
And hold you within
It’s a right I defend
Over and over again

Under the dome of white jasmines

Standard
Under the dome of white jasmines

Sous le dôme épais
Où le blanc jasmin à la rose s’assemble
Sur la rive en fleurs, riant au matin
Viens, descendons ensemble.

The sun starts its symphony of colors up in the sky, and the sweet light of the sunset dances on the surface of the beautiful pearls on my chest.

Sweet Spring 3

This is the stunning new Mae jewelry set, the latest creation by Zuri Jewelry. It’s available in several colors, and the shape allows you to wear it with several mesh bodies.

The delicate champagne tone I chose is a wonderful companion for the flowing silks of my adorable Spirit Maiden gown, by Silvan Moon, which you can find exclusively at Shiny Shabby.

Sweet Spring 1

Also available in several soft tones, this original mesh design comes with versions for mesh and classic bodies, with the magical combination of talents that is Silvan Moon and that we all love so much.

Under the thick dome where the white jasmine
With the roses entwined together
On the river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning
Let us descend together!

Nude

Standard
Nude

Nude, you are simple as one of your hands,
Smooth, earthy, small, transparent, round:
You have moonlines, applepathways:
Nude, you are slender as a nude grain of wheat.

I let your eyes feast on the curves of my skin. I need no garments, no other garb than your longing caress and the sumptuous beauty of my jewelry on the warm skin.

Comet-1

This ode to luxury is Zuri Jewelry’s new Comet Jewels collection. Partial mesh with Zuri’s incomparable diamond gems, this set brings the classic sophistication of vintage jewelry, with a touch of tender fantasy. I’m wearing the Onyx/Diamond gems with sterling silver, but it’s also available in several other color combinations at the main store (the bracelet belongs to the Ava Elite collection… which I also recommend!).

Comet-2

Nude, you are blue as the night in Cuba;
You have vines and stars in your hair;
Nude, you are spacious and yellow
As summer in a golden church.
