A Murder of Crows

#85 A Murder of Crows

Her piercing green eyes swept around the abandoned fair grounds a small smile gracing her lips at the broken sights. The sound of wings and a calling caw drew her attention to the dark sky. She held out her arms without stopping and cooed at the crows that perched on her and those flying around. Two of the crows inched close to her face and gave their reports. She listened intently her smile growing at their news. She sent them off again and set off towards the old dirt road on the far side of the park.

Sorry not a long story this time. However I have to say you will be seeing this sim again because while I was looking for a spot to do this photo I explored and wow I loved one area especially and plan to create a look to better fit it. 🙂 Other news, I am back from my short break after the Fantasy Faire! Oh my goodness was it ever fun blogging them again this year. The last demon look, you will also be seeing similar again because I loved how those elements came together and do not feel that post did it justice.

Now, on to what my sponsors have been up to. Something New Poses is doing less events this month to focus more on some new releases and I love the pose I used for this post. Gorgeous work guys!

Adoness on the other hand has been a busy bee and is in quite a few events right now. She is in the Dark Fair 3, Thrift Shop 13 and Genre this month. The genre dress is a cute sports dress that I will be showing in a later post. And if any of you have had the same bad luck finding shaved hair bases for Lelutka heads (other than the ones they released with some new hairs) dispair no more! Adoness is working on bringing her beautiful shaved hair bases to appliers! So far she just has the basic and rose designs on Lelutka appliers but is working on other appliers as well as other designs down the road. Perfect for showing off with her new mohawk hair style. You can find both the hair and hair bases at The Dark Style 3. At Thrift Shop 13 she has a gorgeous new dress with a morte motif.

Last, but not least, Lumae has a new release. She’s had some troubles with getting on SL and so missed a few planned events but her new makeup for Eirtae at Enchantment is just gorgeous. The lipstick appliers she did for the hunt prize are wonderful as well and go great with the skin. The new makeup only comes in tone 3 but during the event is only 100L so be sure to run over and pick it up.

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.

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.

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.
