{ Artist of a floating world }

“She paints her face to hide a face
Her eyes are deep water.
It is not for geisha to want, it is not for geisha to feel.
Geisha is an artist of a floating world.
She dances, she sings, she entertains you, whatever you want.
The rest is shadows, the rest is secrets.”
~ Memoirs of a Geisha

“But hearts don’t have locks, she said.
Some do, he replied. There are people who give away the key to theirs for safekeeping. Others are mistrustful and give out several keys just in case. Then there are those who have misplaced them but never cared to look.
What about your heart, she asked.
He smiled.
Your words are the key to mine, he replied.
Never forget your words.”

{ Cover your crystal eyes }

I know I’ll wither so peel away the bark
‘Cause nothing grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear

Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

But I’m okay in see-through skin
I forgive what is within
‘Cause I’m in this house
I’m in this home
All my time

Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

FairyForest_FINAL

The Gacha Garden meets We<3Roleplay in today’s post for you guys!  It’s been a few days because this one took a bit more work to put together, but I hope you like the results!  I truly enjoy getting to do fantasy themed pics and although the We<3RP event is obviously geared for that genre.. I was excited that there were also quite a few items at The Gacha Garden this round that would also be fun for some roleplay!  Astralia is fast becoming one of my favorite creators for flowery fantastical goodies, as you can see by this gorgeous Fairy Huntress outfit!  Azuchi is also doing really well and popping up in more events, with such rich textures like that of this Archer’s outfit, you really have to see with your ambient lighting on to appreciate how magnificent they look.

Both events are still going strong through the rest of this month so get on over to hunt for your favorite fantasy items!

P.S. if you thought you were seeing things, no, those are indeed cat/owls in the trees. Yay for imagination!

(I wonder if they hoot or meow.)

{ dreaming } Gacha Garden Opens SOON!

“You know that place between sleep and awake;
that place where you can still remember dreaming?
That’s where I will always love you.
That’s where I will be waiting.”
~ Peter Pan ~FloraFauna_FINAL

The Gacha Garden is about to open its gates once again and welcome you in with an abundance of creativity and unique designs from many of your favorite creators around the grid!  I’m giving you a sneak peek at a few of my favorite items this round with a fantasy flair. If you weren’t able to check it out the last round, one thing that makes this event unique is that for those that love to play the gacha machines, you will be rewarded anytime you play 20 times on the same machine with a special exclusive prize called the “Seed of Inspiration” !  All machines are marked with the exclusive SOI (“Seed of Inspiration”) item as well as the commons and rares that you can win and collect.  As with other gachas, all items are NO COPY/TRANS so you can give away extras, trade them, or sell through various gacha groups and yardsales.

The Gacha Garden will open November 1st and run for the entire month, plenty of time for you to get on over and stock up on all the goodies that are available!  A great time to get an early start on Christmas shopping too!  See you there!

{ Give you what you like }

Please wrap your drunken arms around me
And I’ll let you call me yours tonight
Cause slightly broken’s just what I need
And if you give me what I want
Then I’ll give you what you like

Please tell me I’m your one and only
Or lie and say at least tonight
I’ve got a brand new cure for lonely
And if you give me what I want
Then I’ll give you what you like

When you turn off the lights
I get stars in my eyes
Is this love?
Maybe someday
So don’t turn on the lights
I’ll give you what you like

Emotions aren’t that hard to borrow
When was the word you never learned
And in a room of empty bottles
If you don’t give me what I want
Then you’ll get what you deserve

Boston-Arcade_FINAL

As much as this post is full of all the lovely things from The Arcade that make me nostalgic for school days… It really was the new “Boston” Outfit from GizzA that served as the inspiration for this picture.  Although the outfit comes in 6 different pattern options (including shoes – not shown), I fell in love with the pastel version of this outfit, particularly because I have a passion for all things pink!  Within minutes I knew I could build the perfect little classroom scene for my not-so-serious-schoolgirl because (Milk Motion) and Sari-Sari had the cutest offerings for Arcade this round with “back to school” flair.  For some reason I’m having a strong desire to watch the movie “Clueless” again.

It’s time to hit the books!  Nahhh.. let’s hit the mall instead!

{ Alter Ego } Collabor88, Gizza and Belleza!

Alter ego

An alter ego (Latin, “the other I”) (disguised) is a second self, which is believed to be distinct from a person’s normal or original personality. A person who has an alter ego is said to lead a double life.

Greek-AlterEgo_FINAL

In many ways, Second Life itself is a means to providing all of us with an Alter Ego… a chance to express different parts of our personality in the way we interact with others. Perhaps you are more outgoing online, maybe thinner, or a blonde instead of a brunette, maybe you live as a child avatar or a furry, or you are Gorean slave master with a harem of women…or maybe your avatar is the complete opposite gender than you are in your first life.  No matter who you choose to “be” in SL… the beauty is there are no rules.  I live my SL each day how I wish to live it.  I change my hair color, I change my size, I change my style from dark and emo to whimsical and fun.  Sometimes I’m a vampire, sometimes a fairy, sometimes I’m a nudist (some people call that lazy).  Honestly, I enjoy trying out all the possibilities.  I don’t want to be limited to a nicely packaged box.  I don’t want to be predictable.  Real life is limiting enough.

This month’s special Anniversary Collabor88 event is coming to a close soon but if you like anything to do with greek or roman mythology especially pertaining to fashion or home decor… there is plenty to be had.  Get on over to check it out.  With the exception of a few tidbits, all items pictured are from the event.  Both of my alter egos are featuring Belleza‘s beautiful new skin “Grace” that comes in 2 skin tones (medium and tan) and 10 different makeup options… in addition I snuck in a new item from GizzA – the ‘epaulet’ which comes in an amazing array of colors and metal options.

So don’t hold back.. be who you want to be.  Show your light and show your dark.  Variety is the spice of life!
