The Conquest

There is a new event opening at midnight, and I know some of you might be rolling your eyes and going, “another event?” But before you dismiss it out of hand, this one isn’t quite like the others because it is inspired by the wonderfully complex world of Game Of Thrones! So if you’re a GoT fan, this is definitely an event worthy of exploring. Here I am showing the beautiful weirwood saplings made by Roawenwood for this event, along with one of the stunning new skins from Glam Affair (available as a gacha) and a lovely gown from Les Encantadas.

Whispers in the weirwoods

Even if you’re not specifically a GoT fan, but love role-play, I am willing to bet you’ll find something to love at The Conquest. The Conquest is located on the Era Of Conquest role-playing sim, so if you’re interested in GoT role-play, definitely check it out. It’s an incredibly beautiful sim, and certainly worth a visit. You can also check out their website for more info.

Autumn Collaboration

A new round of Collabor88 opened this week, and the colors are rich, vibrant and perfect for October! You can check out the whole catalog here. It’s a must-not-miss round (but aren’t they all?)!

I fell head-over-heels for this dress from The Secret Store. It just screamed my name, and I had to fight the urge to fatpack it. But if I’d done that, I wouldn’t have been able to grab so many of the other goodies I wanted, so I simply picked my favorite color combo. The gorgeous house in the background is from Trompe Loeil, and also at Collabor88. I will have more photos of that before this round ends, but you simply must see it in person to appreciate the rich textures and amazing details on this build. The potted mums I snagged recently from MudHoney, and the pile of pumpkins are from Eleventh Hour’s pumpkin gacha at the Fantasy Gacha Fair (more from that event soon). I bought my leafy autumn grass from Zigana last year, and the adorable log path was a wonderful find from Alchemy for just 1L! The autumn rules sign was part of vespertine’s Arcade gacha this past round. I don’t know if they’ve made those available in the mainstore yet.

Autumn Collaboration

This stunning skin is from Collabor88, too. It’s by Glam Affair and is another in the Neva series. This is one of my all-time favorite Glam Affair faces, so I was absolutely thrilled to see it in two tones (Jamaica, as seen here & Artic). I also grabbed some new lashes recently. Mon Cheri released their Falsies lashes, and I have to say, I love them. You have two options for wearing them; one where the bottom and top lashes are one object, and one where you add them separately. They are hud controlled and there are lots of fun variations, like dip dyed and glitter. There are also 3 styles of lashes. I highly recommend the demo, which you can use to practice fitting. I’m not the best at fitting lashes, and it took me a while, but I did get them to fit (about as well as I ever get lashes to fit) after about 45 minutes.

Neva by Glam Affair (Collabor88)

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

Isolation of the queen

I don’t generally blog head-wear… be it hats or crowns. I sort of just don’t think to, unless it’s attached to, or included with, hair. But when I got this Framed headdress from Glam Affair (available at FaMESHed), I was instantly drawn to it. It’s so unusual, and it’s beautifully made. I built my look around this one piece, and building a look around an accessory is not something I’ve done much of, either. It was fun, and different… and a bit outside my comfort zone.

I decided to grab the beautiful Guilia gown from Baiastice for Love Donna Flora. My hair is Aria, a recent release from Truth. I love braids, and this hair felt perfect for the headdress. I wanted a location that had a touch of fantasy, but also something like a castle. I found the perfect location at Fallen Gods.

The isolation of the Queen

Here’s a closer look at the headdress.

Solitary

My skin is the latest release from Essences. It’s called Whisper, and I really love the depth of character in this face. They eyes, in particular, really captivated me.

Essences - Whisper

I really had fun with this look. Sometimes it’s fun to step outside our normal boundaries and explore!

Fantastical

I have more for you from Fantasy Faire today! First up, from Almost Wonderland I present this really cool chandelier. It has built in poses, which are a lot of fun… but even without the poses it’s pretty neat. Almost Wonderland has all of their chandeliers as their charity items from Relay For Life, so if you’re in the market for a new one, especially one fun for pics, definitely check it out.
You can find Almost Wonderland’s FF store on the Ravenshard sim. My frilly, sexy lingerie is from Blacklace. It had a sort of Wonderland feel to it, I thought. I added hair from Analog Dog and a headpiece from Pididdle.

Dangle

Okay, so my next set of pics… Peryton… this is such a cool avatar from Wilds of Organica, which is on the Dragonspire sim at Fantasy Faire. I am usually human in SL. Like, by usually I mean 99.9% of the time, probably. And this type of avatar is so outside my normal SL reality, I was a little nervous about doing it justice. Since I’m not one to play a non-human av, I can’t honestly say whether or not I did this avatar justice, but it was so, so much fun to take these dramatic pics of Peryton. I was really happy with how these came out, and I hope you like them, too. If you do spend time as a non-human, I’d highly recommend checking these creatures out because they are stunningly beautiful and have AOs and poses you can buy. In the pic below, I’m using the crouch pose. It made me feel like I was stalking prey.

Stalking

There’s something very regal about this avatar. I’m not really sure what this creature even is… part bird, part goat, part dragon? I think it’s cool that it’s not boxed in. But whatever Peryton is, I can’t help feel a little haughty dressed as her. Oh, by the way, I have the teal version, but the eyes change colors. I went with lavender because I love purple, and there’s a hint of purple in her plumage.

Wild Thing

I took both pics on the Valley of Ish’Nar sim at Fantasy Faire. This sim is part of the Key Of Hope hunt, which is a pretty cool event that’s part of Fantasy Faire. You can read more about it here.

Cinema!

I was very excited to have the chance to take a sneak peek at the Cinema venue. This build is possibly the most impressive, beautiful, richly detailed of any Second Life event I’ve been to, and for that reason in this first post I am sharing just pictures I took of the build.

Box Office

The snack bar is really amazing. Click the menu to get wearable props, each with the names of the event sponsors. This was such a creative, cute way to give those sponsors their due!

Snacks 2

All of the stores can be found in the various themed theatres. You’ll find Sci Fi, Romance, XXX, Film Noir, Horror, Action/Adventure and Musical/Fantasy. In other words, there’s truly something at Cinema to appeal to every taste. Then there is the adorable theater for the last breedable to hit the grid, Fennux. These critters, inspired by fennec foxes, are seriously cute. But don’t take my word for it… check out this guy, who was taking in a film as I walked by.

Fennux

I had tremendous fun exploring all the stores, and I have snagged so many amazing things I can’t wait to share with you. But alas, ever post must end… so those goodies will have to wait for another post!
