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!

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.

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.

A Demoness’ Search

 #47 A Demoness' SearchTrista sighed as she heard the thump of books falling over followed by muffled cursing. She turned and holding onto the ladder carefully leaned back to straighten the books on the table. There was a dark blur as Carrnys was unburied.
“Tink’s titties Tris, why the devil are we in this dusty old shop?” Carrnys stood atop a short pile of books and put her hands on her hips.
 #47 A Demoness' Search - Trista CloseTrista turned back to the shelf and continued trailing her finger along the spines and glancing at titles as she said, “I told you Nys, this is the only shop in the city that carries a book on getting rid of a gargoyle.”
The imp flew over and sat on the shelf next to her giving her a smirk and saying, “Maybe that’s because most people don’t bring them to life.”
Trista glared at the imp. “I was trying to animate a book! how the hell was I to know you’d chose that exact moment to come flying by with a mirror of all things and redirect the spell?”
 #47 A Demoness' Search - Carrnys Close Carrnys shrugged and swung her legs, “Why not just leave it be then? He keeps eating the bugs and keeps the bats away.”
“Because he also keeps eating the messenger birds, which means I keep having to replace them, both my own and other people’s. Not to mention he snores loud enough to wake the dead. Now help me find the book so we can get out of here, I’m starving.”
 #47 A Demoness' Search 2Carrnys sighed and flew to the shelves on the opposite side.

Mystic

#46 MysticAya hugged herself as the moon reappeared from behind the clouds and gave her a clear view of the destruction surrounding her. She blinked back tears at the sight of the temple she grew up in laying around the clearing in rubble. She had had a vision a few nights back of the temple being swallowed by darkness. She bent and ran her fingers lightly over one of the angel statues that once guarded the temple doors, all that was left was part of its torso and left wing and most of its head. She stood and turning her eyes to the sky vowed that she would discover who had done this and bring them to justice and only then would she rebuild the temple in its former glory.

Hey guys! I am back from my long weekend and have quite a bit to catch up on. Three of my sponsors have items in this months round of We ❤ Roleplay! Lumae has two new fantasy skin tones for Jewel and Adore, Storybook has this lovely outfit and cape in several colors, and Gauze has some new eyes and a petite aura (I will be showing that off next post). I think the items went well together for this look. 🙂 Something New Poses and Dark Passions both also have new releases that I will be covering this week. I also need to see what else is out at We ❤ Roleplay and go yardsaling for some of the arcade gacha items that caught my eye. I also want to do a series of posts featuring one of my favorite kid stories, it will likely be 5 posts with others interspersed as needed.

Among the Stars

#41 Among the Stars Composite

Maia’s glow was fading. Her skin was no longer the beautiful luminescence of the stars, but a soft pale tone. It was time for her annual journey to rejuvenate her essence, for how were people to see her if she no longer shined. She journeys to a nearby galaxy, one famous for its river and sea of star essence. She reaches the river and takes a moment to enjoy the energy and essence vital to all stars flowing around her. She continues to follow the river until she reaches the vast sea of stars it flows into.

#41 Among the Stars Laying

Removing her top and skirt she lies down and begins to soak up the essence she needs to renew her brilliant glow. She closes her eyes and floats there for hours. She relaxes completely knowing no one would harm her here. She had been coming here since she was born into the cosmos. Long before any civilization had spotted her in their night sky and named her. She smiles with fondness at the thought of her name, Maia, it meant Mother to the Greeks which had named her. She had had many other names from various other civilizations on countless planets in various galaxies, but Maia was her favorite and the one she had chosen for herself.

#41 Among the Stars Dancing

The energy flowing in her starts to bubble over and she begins the next part of her rejuvenation ritual. Turning her face to what passes as a sky above the sea of stars she begins to dance. Her eyes close and as she dances she feels the energy she has soaked up settling in her body. When she finishes she looks down to see her skin once again glowing. She puts her top and skirt back on and begins the journey back home.


My challenge to myself for this post was to include as many of my sponsors’ recent or current items. I managed to fit all except Fair Play in, but look forward to seeing Otherskin’s exclusive item in a post soon! Thank you to all of my sponsors who share their wonderful creations with me so that I can create my characters to share with all of you.

Winter Queen

#35 Winter Queen Full

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days, the weather was really bad here which makes our wifi almost non-existant. Not to mention I got one of my lovely migraines. But! I am back and got a new look for you. Two of my sponsors, Lumae and Storybook, are at the new round of We ❤ Roleplay, which is celebrating its second birthday! So there are lots of goodies out, some free and some cheap, plus all of the normal lovely new releases discounted during the event. I also have a new sponsor! I was accepted to blog for Something New Poses. 🙂 So they are featured in this post as well. I chose one of their older releases so it would fit the outfit better but look forward to seeing some new stuff from them in upcoming posts.

#35 Winter Queen

I have been discovering new features of the updated Firestorm this week, when my net was working well enough. One of the cool new things is they updated the snapshot feature and options. They even have photo filters! I used the Spotlight feature on the close-up to give it the vignetted look.

Also I may be changing my blog look. I was reviewed a week or so ago by Canary Beck on her post about search engines and blogs. She had some good points about my blog design not being search engine friendly. However the main reason I am thinking of changing is I am concerned about the ease of navigation. I love being able to see all my photos displayed together like this, but I know it was difficult for me to figure out the navigation at first and want to see if I can find a template that I like but will also display my sponsors and blogroll more visibly. I would love to hear opinions from readers about this as well. 🙂

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.
