Awakening Spring

#69 Awakening of Spring

No story today sorry, but I have been wishing soooo bad for warmth and sunshine that I decided to do a spring post. Maybe that’ll jump-start Mother Nature into spring mode in my area (probably not but I can dream☺). All kinds of good new releases and a couple new things I came across and loved.#69 Awakening of Spring Close

Lumae has two new fantasy shades out for her new skin Eirtae at this months round of We ♥ Roleplay and they are gorgeous. I am loving her new hud system. Instead of boxing the body appliers and head appliers and such separate she has put them each into their own huds. So all the body appliers are on one hud and the same for head appliers and so on. She is also adding appliers for Bentbox Sylvan ears, which is how I discovered them. The BentBox Sylvan Ears are so realistic and there is so many options in the hud that I did a photo showing the hud options ☺.

#69 Awakening of Spring - BentBox Sylvan Ear Hud

#69 Awakening of Spring - Soul Oree Wing HudAnother item that was new last month is the Soul Oree Wings. Not only are they gorgeous
but the are super customizable. There are 32 diff textures for the membranes and veins of the wings separately so you can mix. I took a photo of the hud for these too to better show you the options.

And the last thing I wanted to tell you about was this great little sim I came across by a Flickr group for photo sims. Luanes World has a few different sections, all of which are gorgeous. There are lots of little sitting spots and props for photos or just to hang out. Also she has a pose shop with beautiful poses. And she has a photo contest going on right now with some nice prizes. Here’s a link for more info on that. ☺

Winter Wonder

#63 Winter Wonder

Hey guys! No story today but I wanted to get a post in before my RL job takes over Friday. We are super busy running 7 days a week for 10-12 hr shift from Black Friday until New Years. So my posts will become even more sporadic. After the holidays I hope to get back to a more regular schedule.

#63 Winter Wonder Above

Since we got quite a bit of snow where I am and more on the way I decided to do a winter wonderland post. 🙂 I did do a little editing on my photos this time around to get a little clipping on the sleeve cuff and to add the snow.  The dress and hair are from adoness and all the poses are from Something New. All of which can be found for a few more days at Thrift Shop 11. I also used Lumae’s newest group gift skin. Hope you enjoy the pics! Wishing you all happy and safe holidays!

Captive Song

As the sun rose, the stone giant opened the door to a cage and held a palm near the opening. A woman stepped into the offered hand and balanced as the hand moved away from the cage and close to where the giant sat. He let his arm rest in the shallow water and watched the woman intently.

Captive Song

She stood and closing her eyes raised the violin from her side. The sun inched its way into the sky and the heat it brought warmed her. She spread her ravaged wings, sighing at the relief that gave her sore wings, and began to play the song the giant bade her to play each morning as the sun rose. It started as a slow, soft melody and gradually became more cheerful as the sun rose higher.

#60 Captive Song Close

When she was done, the giant sat still. She knew this was a silent order for more music and began a new song. After a few songs the giant lifted it’s hand back to the cage and as soon as she had closed her wings and stepped inside, it re-locked the cage’s door and left. She moved to a small couch and sat, laying her violin nearby. She pulled her knees to her chest and wrapped her arms around them and stared out over the sunlit water.

Goodness the past week/weekend was terrible. Thankfully it is over and I am feeling a bit better. Here is the post I promised you. Sorry for the delay. Thank you all for your patience with me.

Sinking Into the Depths

#58 Sinking Into the Depths

Lily felt a slow falling sensation, almost as if she were weightless, and furrowed her brows before slowly opening her eyes. As her vision cleared she realized with a shock that she was underwater. She fought the need to breather and looked around to discover that she was far enough down to see the taller plants and only faint beams of light from above. To her left a sunken pirate ship came into view.

She tried to move her limbs and propel herself toward the surface but they wouldn’t move. She fought panic as her lungs started to hurt from lack of fresh air. She felt herself settle on the sandy bottom and squeezed her eyes closed on the darkness starting to creep across her vision. She tried again to move her arms or legs, anything that she could use to push off the sea bottom and get to the surface and the oxygen her body needed. Her lungs felt like they would burst if she didn’t take a breath soon.

Sinking Into the Depths Bottom

Her mouth opened and she took an involuntary gasp of breath and her eyes snapped open. She lay panting looking up at a white ceiling. A face appeared above her and the last tendrils of confusion cleared from her mind.

“You okay down here?” The man gave her a grin and chuckled slightly.

Lily tried to sit up but found herself still unable to move. She looked down and realized that not only was she completely tangled up in the sheets, she had also ended up on her bedroom floor. She groaned and dropped her head back to the floor. “I’ll be fine in a moment. Just let me catch my breath and then help me get untangled.”

Sinking Into the Depths Details


Sorry some of my items are from events that just closed recently. I have had a week or so of being uninspired. I have multiple characters ready to go for three or so other posts, just no story or photos for them yet. However when I saw this skin I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it and couldn’t wait to get it up! Lumae has done a beautiful new mer skin for the upcoming round of Enchantment. The theme this round is “The Little Mermaid”. It’s a fantasy tone on her Adore skin with 5 different make-ups to purchase. Each will only be 100L at the event. She will also have a pink-purple toned version out as a hunt gift in her store during the event’s time. Here is the current list of appliers Lumae skins include: Omega Body and Head, Omega Yabusaka Petite Body Applier (use in conjunction with Omega head), SLink Multi HUD (Hands, Feet, Physique) and Visage, The Mesh Project Body and Head, Maitreya Body, Belleza Body, LeLutka Head, Eve’olution by Absolut Creation, Genesis Lab Appliers (works best on Chloe Head), AMD Baby Bump, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweetlips, Kissers, Soul Ears (not the mermaid), and her own Leevi Ears in matching tones. This skin also includes 3 eyebrow options with both facial scales and without.

Later this week I’ll get my other posts ready and up. One is filled with the newest items out at Fair Play’s August Round. Another is featuring a new store called Glitter Trash. The last one is the one I’ve mentioned before about a battle between good and evil. 🙂 Thanks for sticking with me and I hope you enjoyed the story and photos!

The Lexi Project

#57 The Lexi Project Outfit 1

Shopping, shopping, shopping oh my! I went to the Lexi Project knowing I was going to be spending quite a bit of money, but its for a great cause so I don’t feel bad about it at all! I decided to use a couple of my old prop sets from W. Winx & Flair that are changing rooms to show off multiple outfits. The event runs July 26-August 9, 2015.

#57 The Lexi Project Outfit 2

“The Lexi Project, a collaborative fund-raiser event founded by Toxxic Rhiannyr & Heather Smithson, created to bring SecondLife brands together in hopes to raise money for one of our own, Lexi Zelin / Owner of AngelRed Couture. As many have probably by now heard, Lexi has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is in desperate need of funds to assist in paying her medical bills / expenses as she is unable to work. Lexi is only 28 years old, mother of one beautiful little girl and plays an important role within SecondLife by creating high quality, full permission mesh apparel, paving the way for many people in the virtual world to have the freedom of opening a store.” 

#57 The Lexi Project Outfit 3

They have over 350 stores participating, each with 1-2 items out. Everything from skins to poses to furniture is being sold there. 100% of the proceeds are going to Lexi. Some stores are offering exclusive items or exclusive colors. As of the morning of August 1st they have currently raised roughly 2,000,130L = approx US$ 8,072.28.

#57 The Lexi Project Outfit 4

I was more than happy to go and donate what money I could on my budget. I have quite a few of Lexi’s full perm mesh products and love them. I am not so great at making my own mesh so being able to buy affordable and great quality full perm mesh was a great option for me. Thank you for all you have given to our community Lexi and I hope your treatment goes well.

Moonlit Whispers

#53 Moonlit Whispers 1

As the moon rose over the ancient amphitheater a woman shimmered into existence. The moonlight caressed her coal dark skin and her long white hair glowed. She closed her eyes and began a slow sensuous dance.If you listen close you might hear the faint echoes of music and quiet conversations of people long gone.

#53 Moonlit Whispers 2

Soon enough the moon began to fade from the sky and the woman stopped her dance. Looking around the dust covered amphitheater she raised a hand to the collar that had kept her prisoner centuries after the people she once served had vanished. Any night the moon lit the stage she was returned her to dance. No one saw her anymore and yet she was unable to escape.

#53 Moonlit Whispers 3

She raised her haunted eyes to the lightening sky, longing for the chance to see the sun once again, and  whispered her wish before fading away.


#53 Moonlit Whispers Comp

So dancing is obviously on my mind lately. I have been watching So You Think You Can Dance which is one of my favorites. That paired with the Dance of the Nile poses from Something New that I am loving, makes for dance related characters and posts. I also couldn’t wait to show you this new release from Storybook. Isn’t it just gorgeous?

Also! Even though there is no We ❤ Roleplay round this month, Lumae still decided to do two new fantasy tones for her Jewel and Adore skins. Not only that but she has placed them in her store at 50% off, as well as every other fantasy tone for Adore and Jewel for the rest of July. So if you missed some in the past months drop in and grab them. She has also been updating and adding appliers. Here is the current list of appliers: Omega Body and Head, Omega Yabusaka Petite Body Applier (use in conjunction with Omega head), SLink Multi HUD (Hands, Feet, Physique) and Visage, The Mesh Project Body and Head, Maitreya Dedicated Appliers, Belleza Body Dedicated Appliers, LeLutka Head, Eve’olution by Absolut Creation, Genesis Lab Appliers (works best on Chloe Head), AMD Baby Bump, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweetlips, Kissers, Soul Ears, and her own Leevi Ears in matching tones. Past Adore and Jewel Fantasy tones are still being updated with Belleza Body and Genesis Head appliers over the next week or so. I will be showing off her other new skin later this week.
