Surely You Jest

#51 Surely You JestShe twirled and leapt in time to the soft music filling the garden, her one person audience sitting entranced. The music came to a close with a long drawn out note and the woman ended the dance in a graceful bow. Princess Ryn blinked a few times before her face split into a huge grin and she clapped.

“Jes that was wonderful! I’m sure everyone at mother’s dinner tomorrow night will love it!”

Jestina stood and gave the princess a small smile. “Surely you jest princess. That is to be a formal dinner, wouldn’t they enjoy my harp playing instead?”

#52 Surely You Jest - PrincessRyn shook her head emphatically. “No way! It is a dinner only for her closest friends and a few of my aunts and cousins. Mother told me to pick something that would appeal to both the older and the younger ladies. I know for a fact my aunts and cousins adore your dancing. As does Mother and almost anyone who’s seen you dance I’m sure!”

Jestina gave a small curtsey and said, “As you wish, Milady. Should I ask someone to play the music while I dance?”

Ryn thought a moment. “Can you use the magic to create the music again?” Jestina nodded and Ryn continued, “Definitely use the magic then. While many have heard you play and seen you dance, few have seen you use magic. They’ll be trying to figure out how you did it for months. Who composed the music anyway?”

“Mother did. She’s no longer able to dance and so has turned to her next favorite passion. She is thankful for your family allowing her the use of your piano.”

#52 Surely You Jest - JesterRyn grinned again. “Saves me from having to practice. You know how terrible I was. I am much happier to let your family be the entertainers.” She stood and hooked an arm through Jestina’s pulling her back towards the castle. She began to talk about costumes and entrances.

Jestina smiled and allowed the younger girl to pull her along. She had given up the fight of keeping her distance from the princess a long time ago. They had practically grown up together. Her whole family and much of her extended family had served Ryn’s family for generations as their Jesters. Many royals only had one or two Jesters, Ryn’s family had come across Jestina’s and seen how talented they all were and offered them employment. Even those of her family not gifted with talents for entertaining worked for them in other areas of the household.


Hey guys! Whew I have to go back to doing single person posts. Between taking the time to do two looks and find locations and poses and such and my net being a pain, my postings per week are dropping. 😦 Good news though! My internet company is aware of how bad the net is (apparently a lot of people have been complaining) and they are going to be working on it soon. We live in a small town, but hopefully that doesn’t mean they’ll put us off.

So for this post I really wanted to show off all the lovely things I’ve gotten from Fair Play! Fair Play is a new event on the grid where the theme of the fair is based of off games. July first started this round and its a beautiful setup based on an old celtic game from the 13th Century called El Mundo. It was a boardgame for four players and each chose a season or element. I will be going and taking pictures of the beautiful setup later this week. Fair Play is different from many monthly events because it is open all the time, the theme will change periodically but may not be on a monthly basis. Also each store has exclusive items out that you will only find at Fair Play. You can find more information as well as a vendor map on the website. The landmark will be below in the credits. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed my little story!

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.


#51 Through the Keyhole Part 3 - Composite

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.

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!

New Events and Fair Play

#34 Linopolis Lilli

Hey everyone! So many new events opening now that the new month is on the way. With the Fantasy Faire sadly over I have plenty to catch up with. As you can tell I was punk inspired for this post. Storybook’s new dress Torment is out at One Word. Then a couple of my favorite stores had things in events. The boots and leggings are from Insanya at The Black Fashion Fair and 100 Block. I know noth events are over, but I was so excited for the Fantasy Faire I didn’t get time to post  these items yet. I also got a few new things from Razor that I plan to share in future posts. Adoness has a new hair out at the Dark Style Fair 2, so I had to go grab that! The skin is Lumae’s from the Black Fashion Fair as well. The fabulous jewelry is from Plastik at the Fantasy Faire! All three were in Relay for Life vendors.

#34 Linopolis Lilli Close

I also have a new sponsor. The owner of Otherskin is starting an event called Fair Play. She has a team of bloggers set to go and the land set up in it’s first theme. Linopolis! Now she is recruiting creators who would like to have stalls there. Here is a photo of the setup and some information about it in her own words.

#34 Linopolis

What is Fair Play?

Fair Play is a kind of different fair group and organizes permanent fantasy fairs with designs, inspired by games.

Fair Play stands for regularly change and wanna spread the visitor crush. Every day is a bit different! The creators update regularly their spots and publish new releases, this guarantees a good and continuous flux and enough excitement.

What makes the Fair Play fairs so different?

The fairs are all permanent. You can rent Your stall and stay as long You like.

You can change Your design or not, how You like. There is no target! There is no stress and no time pressure.
You have one month time to make and publish one new release. You are also allowed to make one gacha vendor and one limited item if you like.

Which themes have the fair?

There is no theme limit, only a direction, the Fair Play team would be happy about. Fantasy, Gothic, Myth, Kins and Roleplay. No violence, no racism, no sex!

You can find out more by contacting Kaleidos Hope in SL. You can also contact her through the website or visit Linopolis inworld. You can also click on their logo before to go to Linopolis in SL.
