Artisan Fantasy released this beautifully detailed set for ROMP. If you’re not familiar with this store, you should be, especially if you’re into role-play. The work is always so well done, and this set is no exception. Now, as you may know, ROMP is an adult themed event, catering to classic kink. And this set includes the expected sexy poses, but it also has decor versions and cuddles versions, something I felt valuable to point out to those who maybe aren’t into the adult things but still love the look of these pieces. I am wearing SLink’s sexy new leather boots, which are designed to fit the Physique body. I’ve heard a few people say they worked for them with Maitreya’s Lara, too, but I’d definitely demo if you’re going to try to make them work with any other body (and frankly, it’s not a bad idea to demo regardless). My cozy sweater dress is from Valentina E. Couture.
Also, thanks to the gorgeous new Morgana appliers released at Pink Fuel, I now have the LOGO Alex mesh head. It’s a lot of fun. I don’t know if I am ever going to walk around full time in a mesh head, but they’re tremendously fun for blogging and will be really useful for ads. And this one is gorgeous, even the default skin that comes with Alex is beautiful. But I enjoy being able to change it because it allows more flexibility and the opportunity to be more unique, which can be, in my opinion, a bit tough to accomplish with mesh heads. But one of my best friends, Krisy, bought the same head and is wearing it with the Pink Fuel appliers, too… and we didn’t think that we looked like twins, and we were pleasantly surprised! I also just love how pouty this face is, and there’s a thinner lip option for those who prefer a less full mouth (personally, I love pouty, lush mouths).

I loved this sign I found over the jukebox in the Blithe Tavern. I found I relate to it, and think it’s true of me. Don’t ask me for advice if you don’t really want my honest opinion. I’ll be as kind as possible giving it, but I also won’t sugarcoat it. It’s how I want to be treated, so it’s how I treat my friends. Plus, I swear a lot, talk about TMI and other inappropriate things and I think it’s fair to say that I’m definitely not the friend for those who are easily offended! But I’m loyal, love my friends with all my heart and will defend them whenever needed, too.
Anyway, let’s talk the sexy dress I’m wearing. It is new from Apple May Designs and you can find it at Tres Chic through October 5th. It comes in four beautiful colors. My skin and eyes are both from Cosmetics Fair, which is doing a gacha round. I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t overjoyed by that, particularly during an Arcade month when I’m pretty gacha’d out. But I did cave and play Essences and The Skinnery.

I admit that when I first saw the Ravaged Wings Jian released for Wrath at the Festival Of Sin II, I was a bit… well, horrified might apply. I mean, they’re pretty gory, what with the flexi blood hanging off them. But they’re also SO well done, and after looking at them for a while I found myself utterly captivated. I wanted to challenge myself… I’ve blogged fantasy, but nothing quite so dark as this, really. I was imagining an angel, fallen from grace, being thrown from the heavens by the gods. I took the photo at Blithe.
I’m also wearing a lovely dress from le fil casse for Black Tie, which, like FOS II, closes September 5th. My foot wraps are from fri.day, for Collabor88’s birthday round, which is also winding down. The gloves I’m wearing are another new release from Jian, available at The Fantasy Collective. Last, but not least, I’m wearing one of Tableau Vivant’s awesome releases for The Arcade. There are a bunch of variations on this Editorial hair, which is just perfect for photography.

I readily admit that I am beyond eager for autumn’s arrival. I’ve been ready for weeks, honestly. It’s just always been my favorite time of year. But summer’s not over just yet, even here at 9,000 feet in Colorado where we could theoretically get our first snow nearly any day now (it’s happened as early as August, though not often). And the gorgeous outfit Valentina E. Couture has out for August’s FaMESHed made me want to dress for summer, even as I crave the first golden aspens of fall. So I found a field of golden sunflowers at beautiful Bella Pace. My hair is Tableau Vivant, also for FaMESHed.
My skin is Glam Affair’s stunning Fiona for Uber. I really, really love the lips on this particular face. They’re pouty and lush. I’m wearing new eyelashes from Izzie’s for The Mix Event. My necklace by Cae is another new release available at August’s round of FaMESHed. My eyes are another of Buzzeri’s Duo line available at N21.

I was really excited when Belleza updated their Venus mesh body and included two new versions. Isis and Freya are the new builds. Freya is my absolute favorite. The curves are gorgeous and for anyone looking for a fuller figure in SL, this is a must-try. I’m particularly in love with the legs on this body. It is important to note, however, that Freya will require clothing made specifically for it. Your standard size large (what I wear on the rare occasions I’m not in a mesh body) will not fit on Freya. Fear not, though, as designers are already beginning to make clothes that fit Freya’s unique proportions. I don’t know all of the stores making them, but I do know both Blueberry and Foxes are. Definitely be sure to try demos, to make sure the item in question has a version for this body!
In the pic below, I’m wearing a rather sultry dress that’s a recent release from Blueberry!
I’m also wearing one of LeLutka’s new release for Hair Fair 2015. This event is winding down… it ends on July 26th (which is also Bandana Day). Remember, Hair Fair is a charity event, raising funds for Wigs For Kids! The gorgeous skin I have on is PXL for Wayward Carnival. My beautiful necklace, based on Hermione’s Time Turner in The Prisoner of Azkaban, is from Cae for Wizarding Faire 2015. This event is also coming to an end this weekend; July 25th is the final day. Oh, and my eyes are Buzzeri’s new release for the new Epiphany gacha event.
A few final notes about the new Belleza bodies… they include an updated hud, with a lot more alpha cuts, a (very) improved fit around the neck, alpha save slots and some really cool features that, to be honest, I’m still learning! You can read more about the update on Belleza’s site. Please note that this post is NSFW!

You may have heard that Belleza is releasing a mesh body soon. I have a couple of teaser pics to share with you. They are working on a few more tweaks, but it should be out very, very soon! In the meantime, these are completely raw images. All I did was crop them. She’s named for a goddess, and I’m not gonna lie… I feel like one wearing this body!
Venus comes with two versions. One version comes complete with hands and feet (all one piece, attached to the body itself), which are controlled by the hud. There are three versions of the feet (flat, medium and high), and 16 different hand positions, all controlled by the hud as well. The hud, btw, is wonderfully easy to use. It’s very clearly labeled, and everything you need is in one hud. The other version of the body is compatible with the SLink hands and feet. In the pic below I am featuring L.Warwick shoes that will be available at the Le Ponpon Sweet 60s event in October.
Stay tuned for more info on Venus soon…
