Ruffles & Lace

So, I feel in love with the Dead Dollz dress. And it’s one of those things I could never wear in RL because, lord it would itch. But I love it here in SL where nothing is itchy and everything feels like satin on your skin (or so I pretend). It’s such a crazy dress, with these tiers of ruffles and the tight fit… I loved it on my hips. I wanted to show it in two very different scenes, but I also wanted both to feel dreamy. The first pic I took at The Outer Garden, and the second I took at L’Arc en Ciel. Both places are beautiful, and at L’Arc du Ciel you can join the group for a small fee and get rezz rights. This is very handy for photographers and bloggers.

Don't wake me from this dream

The second picture I named Rebekkah. I showed a raw screengrab to my husband and asked what I should name it, and to be a wiseass he said the first name that came to mind… Rebecca. So I decided I’d go with it, in my own way. The crazy, wild, wonderful hair is from Exile for the OMG Unicorns round of Collabor88, and you still have a few days to go by there and grab the goodies. I’m not hugely into either unicorns OR pastels, but I still found plenty I wanted from this round, so even if the them doesn’t sound appealing, I’d say it’s worth checking out in person!

Rebekkah

This dress is a limited edition, and you can get it here. Only 100 copies will be sold, and as of right now there are 41 remaining.

On a final note, I was able to make this dress work with Maitreya’s mesh body, Lara. I was pretty happy about that, and figured it was worth sharing!

Cinder

Usually when people think of Cinderella, they think of the blue eyed, blonde from the Disney movie. When I began putting together a look for January’s We ❤ Role-Play, however, a very different version of Cinderella was born.

It began with the lovely dress from Evie's Closet. Now, this dress includes beautiful fairy wings, but I put on the PXL skin and Entwined hair and inspiration struck. Meet Cinder, the mysterious, dark version of Cinderella my imagination conjured up with help from these three wonderful We ❤ Role-Play releases.

Cinder dreams of love

Now, just like the Disney version of Cinderella, Cinder is overworked and dreams of love that will take her away from her evil stepsisters and wicked stepmother.

Cinder takes a break

We can only hope her dreams come true.

What fantasies can you make an SL reality with the help of creations from this month’s We ❤ Role-Play? Hurry over to find out today!

Hello 2015!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m having a hard time with the whole “wow, it’s another new year already feeling!” But ready or not, 2015 is here! So I threw myself a party for the new year, complete with a buffet and a sparkly dress and some fabulous shoes and jewels and a gorgeous new skin from Glam Affair available at the new round of Uber. My 2015 sign is from Sway’s. It includes built in poses that are a lot of fun, but not very dress friendly, so I’m using a Ploom pose instead. Whether used as decor or to pose on, though, this is seriously cute. There is also an elegant silver and gold version available.

Hello 2015

My jewels are from Cae, and the pearl ring on my right hand is new for Fit For A Princess. It’s so delicate and pretty.

January Jewels

When the party was over, the poor puppy was utterly exhausted, and curled up in his bed by the fireplace… the mantle was still decorated for the season and I couldn’t resist snapping a pic.

Not a creature was stirring

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!

The Attic Witch

There is a new round of We ❤ Role-Play going strong, and as always I found something fun to challenge my creativity. Koy released these awesome, witchy poses, and I’d just purchased the Vespertine skybox from the current round of Collabor88… and I knew they’d go perfectly together! This seductive gown is from Distorted Dreams, and is also available at We ❤ Role-Play.

The Attic Witch

Ploom has a new hair release, in two versions, for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. I’m wearing Mystic 2 here. I love the curly, wispy hairbase this one comes with so much.

Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween. I’ll be blogging some pics of my home all decked out for the holiday in days to come, but for now I have a couple of other pics to share.

This first picture features some items from Collabor88’s current round, which has dark, moody colors and lots of spookiness! These boots and dress are from ISON. The boots are so amazing. They move so perfectly with my av and I love the ruched detailing on them. The slip dress is just freakin’ stunning. The way it gathers around the belly, and the wrinkles, god the wrinkles. I’ve spent way more time than is probably normal just admiring the wrinkles… the attention to detail in both of these pieces makes ISON creator Harry Hyx a genius in my opinion. My witchy broom pose is from Ploom and the hair, so delightfully messy, is from Exile and also is at Collabor88. The pumpkin pile is courtesy of What Next, and the spooky plank signs are from Sari-Sari.

Witchy Woman

This next pic features a new release from Pixel Mode, the Woodlands hot tub, which is currently available at The Liaison Collaborative. I fell in love with the rustic charm of this release, and decided to dress it up a bit for a Halloween hot tubbing party, with some help from What Next, Fetch, Ploom and Belleza. The adorable skin I am wearing is one of Belleza’s new group gifts (the other one is in the previous picture in this post!). My hair is from Ploom. It’s called Oh Deer, and includes two versions. One has a built in, deer inspired headband. The other has space for headbands inspired by other animals (sold separately). I’m wearing that version with the cat ears! The headbands are actually compatible with three new Ploom releases, so be sure to check them out.

Halloween Hot Tubbing

However you celebrate today, whether it’s Samhain and a religious festival, or just secular Halloween fun, I hope you enjoy! As for me? Well, I’ll be making Mummy Dogs and watching It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown with my husband tonight!

The Autumn Harvest Fairy

This is an original short story, inspired by the gorgeous Obelia fairy outfit from Evie’s Closet available at this month’s awesome round of We ❤ Role-Play. Full credits will follow the story.

There is a chill in the air that awakens me. For weeks I have slumbered, tucked away under a large tree near a pond. My people have slept near me, in tiny huts made of leaves. I peel back my covers. It’s still officially summer, but I know the days of warmth and relentless sunshine are fading fast, as the leaves have already begun to turn here in the mountains. I do not care. Autumn is my season. It is the season of my people. We are the fairies of autumn, you see. For the past eight weeks, since spring left the mountains where we dwell, we’ve lived in a sort of suspended animation. You could say hibernation, I suppose.

I stretch, and unfurl my wings which are damp with the early morning dew. I’m still sleepy, but glad it is my time. I know I must soon rouse the other fairies, as they will look to me for guidance in the busy days ahead. For now, I take to the sky, landing on a leaf of a large water lily. The beautiful orange flower is still in full bloom, but this, too, will soon end and the flower will slumber as I have these past weeks. I rest on the leaf, and eat some berries for breakfast. I sip water from the cool pond, and then just relax in the mountain morning air.

Autumn Harvest Fairy

After my breakfast, I fly up to the lily. I begin the harvesting of nectar from this special flower. My sisters and I, along with the rest of our people, will collect this nectar and turn it into a fine, shimmery powder. Some we will save, to nourish us through the long winter months. The rest we carefully package for a long journey. With the powder in special silken bags strapped around our bodies we will fly down to the plains, where crops are still growing in the waning summer sun.

Harvesting Nectar

The farmers do not know the important part we autumn faeries play in their harvest, but every season, for thousands of years, we have performed the same task. We take that shimmery, powdered nectar and sprinkle it upon the crops to help enhance the harvest. We cannot control the summer elements, of course. That job falls on the shoulders of summer faeries, who have long been known for their volatile, unpredictable tempers. The wars they fight amongst themselves are often a distraction from their duties, and the crops can suffer when this happens. It is the job of us autumn faeries to clean up the messes made by the summer faeries. With our nectar, even in the worst years we’re usually able to salvage some of the season’s crops for the people who so desperately rely on them for sustenance. This year has been a good one, based on the flora I have already observed in my little mountain hollow. Our job will not be so difficult this year, which is a big weight lifted off my shoulders. Not surprisingly, when I have to wake my fellow faeries to bad news they become rather sullen and grouchy. But there will be none of that this year, and the crops should be especially bountiful.

I take one last deep breath… I savor the scent of the lilies, I tilt my head back and soak in the early morning sunlight. I catch it shimmer on my wings, and I know the time has come. There is work to be done; for the autumn harvest is nigh upon us.

I open my mouth, and sing the song that has awoken my people for centuries upon centuries; for I am their queen, and they will awaken to my command alone.

Wake my lovers, sons and daughters
Wake my people, sisters and mother
Come and break your fast with me at the water
The autumn harvest is drawing near
Wake, my people, our time is here

~Lucie
