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. ☺

Through the Keyhole Part 3

Blanca groaned and said, “Incoming.” The other girls followed her gaze and let out groans of their own.

#51 Through the Keyhole Part 3 - FullThe elegant woman came to a stop before them and gave them a snooty look before saying in a slightly nasal voice, “Well isn’t this… quaint. I should have guessed you girls would use your heritage for your costumes.”

Chessa hissed and Hati wrapped an arm around her to keep her next to her. “Really, Ruby? Isn’t that the kettle calling the pot black? Why not go back to your throne and put your feet up on a pig?”

#51 Through the Keyhole Part 3 - Close

Ruby frowned at Hati and Chessa and raised her chin high as she replied, “We don’t use pigs anymore. That’s just filthy. Why my great grandmother thought that was a good idea is beyond me.”

“Where’s your entourage tonight Ruby? No hot men or plastic women with you?” Alice asked in a chipper tone. Blanca bit back a laugh and did her best to keep a straight face.

Ruby narrowed her eyes at Alice and turned to stalk off.

“Well that was a blessedly short run in. Lets get to those drinks and get to dancing.” Blanca said and pulled Alice towards the table in the corner where their drinks still waited.

Sorry that part was short. I hope you enjoyed my Alice in Wonderland characters. To clarify, these were great grand-daughters of the originals, set in a more modern world with magic.

Also! Fair Play’s newest round El Mundo opens today! The link is down below in the credits. Also here is a link to that great article by Rubilyn that explains more about the fair’s newest game inspired theme in case you missed it last post. I will be going and getting pictures there later this week.

Through the Keyhole Part 2

#50 Through the Keyhole Part 2 - CloseBlanca reached back and grabbed Ali’s hand pulling her close before the crowd could separate them. Ali laughed and thanked her. They reached where they had seen their friends and they stopped to stare a moment.

Blanca sighed at the sight of their two friends entwined and said, “Maybe you two could separate for a minute so that we can greet you and see your costumes.”

Hati and Chessa giggled and stopped dancing to turn to them.

“Well we had to do something while we waited. We’ve been here over an hour already. What took you two so long?” Hati said with a knowing grin as she reached up and straightened her hat.

“Oh you know it was Ali! Blanca is never late!” Chessa said in her musical voice and showed off her cheshire grin.#50 Through the Keyhole Part 2 - Full

“Geez Chessa what did you do to your face? And where the hell did you get real ears and a tail?” Ali grimaced at Chessa’s creepy new smile. “You’re taking the costume just a tad far.”

Hati smiled and tilted Chessa’s face to her and gave her cheek a caress. “I like my kitten’s new look. It fits perfectly with her new collar.”

Chessa gave a little purr at Hati before turning her gaze back to Ali and Blanca. “It’s a spell of course. Wears off in 24 hours. Got it for a steal.”

“Same for your hair Ali?” Hati raised an eyebrow at Ali’s long blonde locks.

Ali nodded and said, “Anyways now that we’re here did you grab a table before the place filled up?”

“Sure did it’s over in the corner. We even ordered your favorite drinks.”

“Cool we’ll come back to dance in a few, I am dying of thirst.”

Blanca turned to follow Ali to the table and groaned as someone caught her eye. “Incoming.”

“Ay Dios mio, Ali! You have five minutes to get down here or I’m leaving your butt behind!”

“Oh chill Blanca. It’s not like the party will end before sunup anyways. Besides its fashionable to be late.” Ali said as she came down the stairs and smiled at her friend.

Blanca pulled her pocket watch necklace up and gazed at the time. “We were fashionably late over an hour ago.” She paused as her cellphone dinged and she flipped it open to check the newest message. “Not to mention the five million texts I’ve gotten in the last hour asking where we were from Hati and Chessa.”

Ali laughed and grabbed her keys from the table by the door. She paused to lock the door behind them and then linked her arm through Blanca’s and started off down the street. “We’re only a couple blocks away from the club. It’ll take all of five minutes to get there. Besides it took longer than I expected to get my hair this light.”

#49 Through the Keyhole Part 1 - Close

“I don’t know why you die it black to begin with. You’re natural blonde looks great on you.”

Ali gave a small snort and said, “I got tired of the stupid blonde jokes.”

“So instead you chose to put up with the goth jokes?”

“Hey people may call me emo and tell me to get some sun, but the goth jokes are no where near as bad as most of the blonde ones.”

Ali and Blanca paused at the club door to flash their IDs and hand over the entry fee. The door opened and they waded into the wave of people dancing to the loud music. They looked around for a moment before Blanca caught sight of Chessa and Hati and pointed them out to Ali. They grinned at each other and began to dance and weave their way across the club.

Sorry this is so late. The Alice in Sexyland event just ended yesterday. >< I have been working on it most of the week. I decided to update one of my alts and get her a mesh body and slink hands. Then because of all the storms coming through the net has been terrible. I dual-logged and crashed a ton, but I finally got the photos I wanted! There are 2 more parts coming ASAP as well as me catching up with stuff from sponsors and events.

#45 Dark Passions 2

Lea Pulled on her new melting bat crop shirt and a cute new skirt. Next came her rocker leg warmers with the small knives and the black boots. She leaned close to a mirror to do her eyeliner and add a hint of purple eyeshadow. Next came a dash of lipstick. She stepped back and looked at her look in the mirror critically. She was rocking the cute punky look but something was still missing. She pulled her blonde hair into various hair styles not liking any of them. She looked around on her vanity and spotted the rainbow glitter hairspray she had used a few months ago for Halloween, perfect! She grabbed a small purse and made sure she had her cell inside. She locked up the apartment and headed to the rave to meet her friends.

#45 Dark Passions


Hey guys! So, I have a new sponsor! Dark Passions makes some cute clothing and I love their nail polishes! The shirt, skirt and nails are all from them. I also have some steampunk items from them I need to put together. A couple of things I know they are involved in at the moment or in the near future are: The Witchy Hour Hunt is from June 1st-30th and has 2 full sets of nails  for 1L each, and coming soon the Alice in Sexyland Hunt from June 12-24th. You can find more info at their store inworld or at their blog.

Xin and Mesh Heads

She approached the ruined city and knew it would be another ghost town. She could see that nature was overtaking it much like many of the other places she had visited while looking for other survivors. She walked through the streets winding her way through wrecked vehicles. She went inside one of the sturdier looking buildings and made her way to the roof. Sitting on a ledge she looked out over the city hoping to spot a sign of life.

#42 Xin and Mesh Heads - SlinkA flicker of red-orange on another roof top caught her eye and she stood in surprise. There was a fire burning, and it wasn’t the building. It was too small to be sure but she thought she could make out what seemed to be a sleeping bag as well. She hurried back down to the street and made her way to the other building. She climbed back up to the roof, this time having to back track and use multiple staircases because of damage to the interior of the building. She passed bullet holes in the walls and blood stains all over and suppressed a shiver of disgust. Finally she made it to the door for the rooftop and pushed it open slowly.

#42 Xin and Mesh Heads - LelutkaThere was a sleeping bag and a small bonfire as well as bottles and empty food cans littering the roof. She stepped towards the fire looking around to find the person who must have made it. Only another survivor could have done it, the mindless creatures the virus had made its victims couldn’t speak let alone remember how to make fire. She noticed a paper tucked under one of the bottles and stooped to free it. It was a note. It was from another survivor to anyone who might find it. They had moved on to the next city, no one was left here. There was two of them a young couple that had escaped the virus and like her were searching for other survivors. They had gone north and would wait in the next city for a week before moving on. She clutched the note tight. It was getting dark, so she settled down and ate some canned beans. She would head north at daybreak and hope to find the couple. Maybe then she wouldn’t be alone anymore. She double checked that her gun was loaded and ready and snuggled down into the sleeping bag. For tonight she would enjoy her temporary safety and the warm fire.


#42 Exposeur Pipes - LelutkaWell that was a surprise. 🙂 I actually wasn’t planning to write a story for this post but I started what was going to be a small description of her finding the ruined city and words just kept coming. I had been looking forward to going and exploring this sim since I began to see pictures of the new build on flickr. Xin did an awesome job! I also wanted to compare my two mesh heads. I have had the slink head Emma for a while and while I like it okay I found it near impossible to find hairbases for. The one I used for this post is the only one I was able to find thanks to a fellow blogger in the SL Blogger Support group. Its not a shaved hairbase, but I used it anyways. I love Adonnes’ hairs and many of them need shaved hairbases. I had been hesitant to get a different mesh head because I was having trouble finding ones I liked that my favorite skin people also make appliers for. Then Lumae, my skin sponsor and favorite skin store, got accepted to make appliers for the LeLutka heads. Still I was indecisive because they are pretty pricey, until they made two wonderful hairs with hairbase appliers for their heads. Cassie is a pretty mohawk type hair with a shaved hairbase, and Ciara is a cornrow hair with a matching hairbase. After seeing Cassie I knew I wanted a Lelutka head. Below I show you a comparison of Slink’s Emma and Lelutka’s Stella. They have the same skin and hair and piercings and all. Stella is on the left and Emma on the right.#42 Xin and Mesh Heads - Slink vs Lelutka

They both have their good and bad points but overall I like Stella better. I will still use Emma sometimes I am sure, but Stella is closer to what I like my face to look like. Sadly I don’t really know how to describe why that is.

Along with showing you the new Xin sim, I also wanted to use my new Exposeur Pipes prop as well as Otherskin’s exclusive snake tongue available at Fair Play. Credits and links to stores are below!
