{ Candyland }

candyland_final

The latest round of Enchantment was deliciously themed around the fairytale of “Hansel and Gretel”.  For me it was also reminiscent of playing Candyland as a child.  How can any kid (or adult for that matter) resist the fantasy of a world so sugary sweet, where lollipops bloom like flowers, candied apples grow from trees and donuts glazed in chocolate adorn the land?  Sadly my blogpost didn’t make it up here in time before Enchantment closed it’s doors for this round, however you’ll find all the items listed below with their corresponding stores should you find yourself hungry for a little shopping treat!

{ Time keeps on slipping }

Time keeps on slipping
Into the future
Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly (oh, yeah)
Fly right into the future

The Secret Affair geared up this round by tinkering with all things Steampunky.  A popular roleplay genre in Second Life for many that dates back to the early days and still many sims abound with Victorian gadgetry from pre-mesh days. The Secret Affair can certainly help bring you up to date with some creative low land impact goodies but you better time hop on over before it ends November 30th!

The Secret Affair will be opening up for yet another round of fantastical goodies on September 14th focusing on all things golden and glitzy.  You’re sure to find anything from urban glam to heavenly gilded gorgeousness.  The event will only be around for 2 short weeks so hurry on over to see what rich treasures await you.

In addition, I want to take this time to mention another very special event going on right now thru September 20th called “The Book of Daniel” that is in dedication to our very own Daniel Estro of Zerkalo.  This past year Daniel has been battling a type of brain cancer.  Needless to say, dealing with such an illness has halted his ability to continue his livelihood thru Second Life at this time…not to mention the enormous financial burden this has put on his family.

This is a fundraising event put together by Neva Xenga of Shiny Shabby and owner of the Neva River Sims, also a very close friend to Daniel and his family.  In collaboration with numerous designers/creators from around the grid to give of themselves so generously in hopes to raise money and offer support to help Daniel and his RL/SL wife & business partner, Anais Terpellie, in their time of need.  Please consider shopping this event and know that in doing so you are helping someone else just like you, who is a part of this wonderful community of Second Life.

To read more about Daniel’s Story and about the event see Neva’s page here.

{ In broad daylight }

…She will come for you.  She isn’t afraid to be seen, even in broad daylight.

She is fearless.

Did she lie and wait
Was I bait, to pull you in
The thrill of the kill
You feel, is a sin
I lay with the wolves
Alone, it seems
I thought I was part of you

You loved me and I froze in time
Hungry for that flesh of mine
But I can’t compete with the she wolf who has brought me to my knees
What do you see in those yellow eyes?
‘Cause I’m falling to pieces

I’m falling to pieces
I’m falling to pieces
I’m falling to pieces
Falling to pieces

{ The darkest part of me }

It’s my descent
To know your pain
It’s watching all
I believed fade away

Half traitors and fools
Half beggars and thieves
Which mask will you choose
What is underneath

I never wanted you to see
The darkest part of me
I knew you’d run away
I waited but you never came

Redbull_FINAL

So afraid to be alone
I tried to let you go
And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me

And out of the black state of your perfect life
And out of the darkness that you need to hide
It covers you
It spills over you

I never wanted you to see
The darkest part of me
I knew you’d run away
I waited but you never came

So afraid to be alone
I tried to let you go
And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me.
