Hidden deeply in the mountains there is a safe haven for all alchemists to gather at, it is considered sacred grounds and no one is to use their powers against one another. Until today, no one has seen this safe haven. Tucked away in a beautiful area surrounded by luscious trees and flowers there are the sacred ruins. At these ruins the alchemists perform rituals.
As you can see, near the ruins lives a sacred lake snake that lives in this magnificent colorful pool of water that was created just for the creature. The beautiful trees with their illuminating foilage are available at Fantasy Faire. The purple tree is called the “MoD – Sylvan of Spells – Fairelands Hollowtree”. The tree is modifiable so you can shrink it to a size that is more suitable to your parcel. The golden tree is called “~*SR*~ Elemental Tree – Earth Box” and the interesting portion about this tree is that it has such a lovely phrase that circles around the tree. The phrase is empowering for those who are fighting cancer.
As you can see we have two Alchemists together at the ruins. They have been startled by the presence of a human. Humans are forbidden to enter this safe-haven so they are in a protective mode. The female alchemist is a orc that is also a alchemist. This is quite rare in the Orc world and it is a highly respected position to hold. The male alchemist is a elf who dwells in the woods deep in the dark forest. He is one of many in his family who has attained the gift of alchemy. Both alchemists are wearing the “[Gauze] The Alchemist” outfits. As you can see the female version is a little more provocative but she still has that edge. Whereas the male version looks strong and fierce in his outfit.
As you can see, this elf takes great pride in his appearance. He is wearing the RFL “Jack” hair by /Wasabi Pills/ and elf ears by Eclectica. I do like the design of the Eclectica ears but I found tinting the ears to be a tedious task. But I do love the Hide/Show option of their jewelry. I hid the jewelry on the ears and wore the Dragon Magick Wares “Dragon Ear Cuffs” and I also wore the Dragon Magic Wares “Mystical Necklace”. I was quite fond of the necklace. I felt it was the perfect necklace to use as a totem of some sort for a alchemist.
With just a handful of days left of this rounds We ❤ Role-Play Event, there are a variety of lovely items that you can still snag while waiting to get into Fantasy Faire 😉
Today I will be showcasing items by [GAUZE], that I have been wearing all week but just haven't had the time to sit here and write out this lovely blogpost. Yukio Ida is probably one of the hardest working creators I know who is willing to try new techniques and collaborate with other great creators to make the perfect items that fit her vision. This time around she has collaborated with the owner of BluPRINTZ once again to make the lovely "Celestine Gown". The unique details with the gown are something I know that would come from the inner depths of Yukio's artistic mind.
The gown is absolutely breathtaking and very ornate in its design. I love the crystal like adornments near the top of the gown that added to the celestial appeal of the dress. Also, I am wearing the newly updated “Chronicle Skins by [GAUZE]” that now have Omega Appliers, Slink Appliers for the skins. The skins have also been updated with little intricate details and a softness added to the body that was not as prominent on the first line.
I decided that I would prance about as some type of Elf-Demon Goddess who only comes out and communicates with the animals at night.
As you can see, the back of the dress has quite an astounding amount of detail drawn in by hand. What I also forgot to mention earlier about the dress is that it also comes with appliers so that you can apply the tattoos on your mesh bodies also. The ornate tattoos hide the special spots of your body so that you don’t need to wear a layer of clothing underneath that deters from the beauty of the outfit.
Since every celestial creature has a place they call home, I decided that mine would be near the lake.
As summer comes to an end, we are all starting to feel some changes in the climate. Some of us not so much. But before we know it, Fall will be here and it will be time to bring out the sweaters and hot cocoa.
I am showcasing a few items from the following stores: [bubble], :::insanya:::, and Koy.
In the picture above I am wearing frayed shorts by [bubble] that were available at the Thrift Shop. I am also wearing a new tattoo by :::insanya::: called “Strong Spirit” in the fresh ink option so that you can get a great view of the beautiful artwork. The mini-top that I am wearing is also by :::insanya::: and my hair is called “Goodbye Summer” and it is by Koy. I chose to wear the pink color from the Unnatural’s Pack because I wanted to try to be a little different than usual.
I love the bangs on this hairstyle. I love how they come together in the front but don’t cover your eyes. The rest of the hair is kind of swept back loosely on your back.
Now I can’t end this post without showing you my amazing shoes by :::insanya::: they come with a texture changing hud that allows you to customize them to a variety of colors. I opted to keep mine black. I just loved the unique look of the shoes and to me they uttered sexiness.
Seriously my inner otaku squealled when I saw the new tattoo that was released by [Gauze] earlier this month. If you watched the anime Inuyasha you would know which character the tattoos are quite familiar to. Although they were not intended in this manner I still think Yuki’s inner otaku was coming out and shouting its love for Sesshomaru. I mean who wouldn’t fall in love with the character, he’s handsome and charismatic and he’s the bad boy 😉
Now I really wanted to be nude for this post but really I also wanted to PC also so I opted to wear these silks by Deviance. So as you can see above I am prancing about around oversized bird cages. I saw these on the sim and I knew they had to be part of my photo series. To me it was like hahaha you petty humans I am too smart to be caught by your stupid traps.
Now this picture is me not noticing the big flaw (aka side booby) until it was already on flickr. So I figured it’s safe to show everyone here since its not showing anything really just a little skin. This is a much closer look of the Kitsune Tattoo and the Arcane Dancer Silks. I was attempting some depth of field stuff inworld but i don’t think my computer can handle it XD.
Finally you get a closeup of the awesome new Asgard eyes. I am wearing the Sif set and I absolutely loved the lightning effect on the eyes. These are by far the most amazing eyes I have gotten so far this year. It really put together my look perfectly.
It is no secret that Yukio Ida and I have a love affair. But sadly its only one sided. You see I am the only one who showers Yuki with love and affection but alas its not reciprocated. Ok all jokes aside. Yukio and I have been friends for a few years now and I have always been a fan of her creations. I am so glad she participated in Hair Fair this year. I always look forward to her creations because I know they will be unique and different then what can be found in the mainstream fashion world.
Let me introduce to you “Gravity”. Ok if you are a huge Kerli fan like myself you will squee with your little black heart adorned with pink ribbons when you see this hair. I tried to emulate Kerli’s look in her music video “Zero Gravity“. The hair includes the hair sticks adorned with stars. This hair is available in several color options.
Harley is a edgy pigtail style that fits well within the cybergoth and gothic fashion. I wore a hairbase by [LANEVO] that was made to match Dura hair but I found it complimented Yukio’s hair perfectly. I am wearing the Gems color pack and I love the bold rich colors in this pack. Of course with this look I was emulating the vendor look at Hair Fair because it seemed absolutely perfect but I added my own twist to it. And shockingly I am not wearing purple :O yes you can all be shocked
Last but not least is the “Unseelie” hair. If you are familiar with the lore of Unseelie subculture amongst the Fae then this hair is perfect for the look. I decided to complete my look with other items by Gauze and ears by TRAP. I am wearing the colors hair pack and this is by far my favorite hair pack because in this hair pack there is RAINBOW hair…that’s right I said Rainbow. But staying within Unseelie fashion I chose the color I am wearing.
There once was a princess who lived in the dark seas. Her clan was unique and of course every mermaid has heard the tale of The Little Mermaid, which was used as a way to ebb children from going against the clans ways. As you can tell they didn’t tell the entire story but only enough to put the fear in all the mermaids in the kingdom. The princess we are following is a rather adventurous mermaid who enjoyed exploring the land and making new friends amongst other undersea creatures. She enjoyed her freedom and solitude that her father granted her. He knew that she would never stray away from the clans watchful eyes.
She loved visiting all the wonderful creatures in her land. Even if she loved being alone, she still yearned for company that couldn’t be found within the mermaid clan.
Like many mermaids she loved the beautiful jewelry that had been created within the clan. When she was born a special crown was created just for her to be given to her on her 18th birthday. She was now 21yrs old and she cherished the treasures the clan had made just for her.
In this post I am wearing a item from a store new to me, this store is called TempT. Without the Siren Outfit I would have been able to pull off the look I wanted to create wearing the beautiful jewelry by [AZE] Jewelry Designs. I love the attention to color on the Siren Outfit and it is one of the few mermaid outfits I have found that had a tad more modesty when it comes to covering the breasts. I also picked up the poses from this post from a new to me store called “Poets Heart” they had a wonderful array of outfits but when I saw that she also created poses, I purchased poses instead.
When I began Second Life, [Gauze] was one of those stores I just couldn’t keep stop spending my lindens at. Of course it didn’t hurt that it was so close to Sn@tch and I was pretty much there all the time. I have watched the transition of [Gauze] go from Visual Kei items to more Fantasy and Roleplay looks. When I’m looking for a set of unique eyes, avatar, skin, etc. I can always count on [Gauze].
I am showcasing the female version of the Fenrir Outfit. Just in case you are wondering there is a wonderful male version that I wanted to take pictures of but alas boi Lola was being shy and didn’t want to make an appearance. If you remember the awesome Fenrir Pauldron that Yukio debut at last years Fantasy Faire, you will be amazed at this complete outfit. The claws include a position hud so that you can change how the claws/gloves pose. The corset is mesh as well as the boots. The pants also come in a phat azz/cutie azz version which I was tempted to try but I remembered I didn’t go buy the appliers yet for my [GAUZE] skins.
Also I was a bit nostalgic and I purchased a hair from the Curious Kitties booth. They were once my go-to place for unique hairstyles in Second Life but with the advent of so many wonderful stores in Second Life I have expanded my store options. I loved how wild and crazy this hairstyle I chose from Curious Kitties was. It was the perfect compliment to my [Gauze] look.
