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.

Believe

Standard

I believe in love, it’s all we got
Love has no boundaries, costs nothing to touch
War makes money, cancer sleeps
Curled up in my father and that means something to me

Dragon fairy 1
All kinds of creatures deserve to love, all kinds of creatures deserve to be loved. Others say that she does not belong in this place, in the company of a monster. They think my claws were made only to tear and destroy, and don’t imagine I’m capable of tenderness. But for her, I have learned to sing, to enjoy the soft moonlight glowing on her delicate wings, to be happy… to love.

Dragon fairy 2

The Fantasy Faire in Second Life means different things for many people, but at its core, it’s about love. It’s also about beauty, talent, and our passion for fantasy, undeniably put to the service of a cause of love, Relay for Life (RFL). RFL of SL is a part of American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life fundraising. Help more families find hope for more fantasy tales and happily ever afters… or at least to help them battle that silent enemy within.

Let the fairies guide you to the Fantasy Faire… it will be open for a few more days!

Without love I wouldn’t believe
In anything that lives and breathes
[…]
Without love I wouldn’t believe
I couldn’t believe in you
And I wouldn’t believe in me
Without love

I believe in love

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

I still want you

Standard
I still want you

This may come, this may come as some surprise
But I miss you
I could see through all of your lies
But still I miss you…

The raindrops slithering down the window remind me of you, sometimes, when it’s cold, or when I’m alone with the memories of you. And still I miss you. I wrap myself in front of my faithful Tarkhan fireplace, and my eyes get lost in the distance, almost seeing you.

The fur softly caresses my beautiful Fionne skin, one of the latest creations by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at The Chapter 4 in February (it opens on Feb 18th). The sensual coconut tone I chose looks beautiful with my Chant fair lipstick (also 7DS) teal duo, now at the main store.

The fire crackles in a thousand sparkles reflecting on the luscious gems of my Forever jewelry set, one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry. A delicate combination of misty diamonds and teal, this jewelry evokes romance and glam.

You can have it… for free! Zuri is hosting a Cupid Hunt at the store, and each item is free for group members, and only L$ 10 for non group members. You can see more detail and find the hints to find the cupids on Zuri’s blog post (written by sweet meeee). The gorgeous glitter eyeliner is by Izzie’s, and I found it at the Epiphany.

Is it a crime,
Is it a crime,
That I still want you
And I want you to want me too?

Hear, gods of vengeance

Standard

“Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!”
          “The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart,
          Death and despair flame about me!”


Fall under the gelid stare of the Queen of the Night and her thirst for vengeance. The moonlight glimmers on her sumptuous jewelry, the brand new Lotis Elite collection, by no other than Zuri Jewelry. This is one of Zuri’s most beloved fantasy collections, and it’s now available in Elite version: you can choose between several colors of gems (two different sets of gems can be changed separately), pearls, and metals.

Her intense beauty is no other than the Romie skin, one of the latest creations by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at the 4Mesh Event. Don’t let those sweet freckles fool you, her wrath will not be appeased. I chose the luscious Juicy Lipsticks, also by 7DS.

This is the splendid Belinda dress, created by MeriVale suitable for classic and mesh avatars. The lace work is exquisite and the design has an absolute Gothic beauty.

“Disowned may you be forever,
Abandoned may you be forever,
Destroyed be forever
All the bonds of nature”

My night arrives

Standard

You won’t hear the soft crunch of my hooves on the fresh snow, but I’m coming, for sure I’m coming. You better behave, you better feast on my honor and set my table, because I know your sins, and my night is coming. Please me, and I will bring you health and prosperity. Cross me, and I will stomp on you and yours, rip you open and stuff your remains with waste.

Krampus 1

A dark counterpart for St. Nikolaus, Perchta is coming for you, rattling chains and bells, and ready to punish your sins. She wears the exquisite Antoinette corset, created by Les Encantades exclusively for the December round of We  RP. Available in several colors (and a very special Christmas-themed pattern), it’s compatible with several mesh bodies and the classic avatar. It gets along beautifully with Stargazer’s new Ancoebus make up and body tattoo, available at the Makeover Room.

My skin is the beautiful Neeltje, by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at eBento until the end of December. To match the beautiful freckles of her face, I used one of the new 7DS body skin packs, including plain, moles, and two intensities of freckles. I couldn’t resist adding the luscious Clarity lipstick, also by 7DS, coming soon!

Krampus 2

Those delicate little golden snowflakes on my hair are one of Zuri Jewelry‘s best winter-themed creations of the year, the Falling Snow Hairpins. They are Elite, which means that I can choose between several colors of gems and metals, and they match beautifully with my Ice Queen jewelry set, also Elite. Zuri waits for you with a wonderful Cart Sale and Hunt, and group members can receive the 12 Days of Christmas gifts each day (and a little bird told me that group fee is only L$ 49 just for today).
