{ I’ll be waiting.. come and find me }

Hi there. Remember me?  Pardon me for being missing in action for the past few weeks but between birthdays and parental duties and getting in a knock down drag out fight with a flu virus I’ve had my hands full.  I’m still a bit under the weather but I’m on the upswing and a particular event in Second Life had me motivated to get out some pics and posts before it passed on by… I’m referrring to the latest round of Enchantment, of course!

castle-large_final

This month’s theme of “Cinderella” has me nostalgic for my childhood and remembering seeing it for the first time in the movie theater on the big screen.  A fairytale coming alive before my eyes.. and the story of a girl that against all odds had her dreams come true.  If anything Cinderella should give us all a little bit of hope for something better. And that it’s never too late for your happily ever after.

Check out Enchantment before the magic ends March 4th!  The clock is ticking!  (The date was extended to the 4th due to sim issues earlier in the event)

{ Float On } FLF, GizzA and Glam Affair goodies!

Got a few fun new goodies to show off to you today… GizzA has come out with several great new outfits lately, this one released just today that I’m loving.  It’s a little bit on the country side, but I think that’s why I like it.  The Wendy Denim Skirt and Knotted Top both come in a variety of colors and patterns to mix and match with each other or other items in your virtual closet.  I am also wearing Glam Affair‘s newest skin, “Fiona“, available at this round of Uber.  6 different makeups in two skin tones and allll the eyebrow options.   Lastly, tomorrow is Fifty Linden Friday and this week oOo Studio is participating with this fun singles pose set with color changing balloon prop!  Definitely a great deal to pick up when you make the rounds.

{ OMG Unicorns! } and NEW Poses from oOo Studio

This week, oOo Studio is participating in Fifty Linden Fridays with a set of 5 poses called “Margarethe”.  I decided to take this particular pose and run with it.. all the way to Collabor88 where it’s Unicorns, Unicorns, everywhere Unicorns this month!  Inspired by the tradition in Spain called “The Running of the Bulls” I set out to have a little fun with my uni-friends here and re-create that feeling with a fantastical twist of pink cobblestone streets up in the clouds.  Don’t be fooled by their cuteness, they’re faster than they look!

{ Eat, drink and be merry }

I’ve been a fan of medieval history and the renaissance for years, enamored with the pageantry and chivalry, the poetry and the art.  It’s all pretty fascinating.  This also explains my obsession with shows like Game of Thrones or The Tudors.  In fact, the very first time I ever tried to roleplay in Second Life was on the medieval sim of Avalon.  I admit it didn’t last too long, but I’ve always appreciated the RPing community in SL and can definitely see the draw for people to play.

Thanks to events like We ❤ Roleplay and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, you now have places to shop featuring some of the best RP content creators offering new items monthly!  I hadn’t ever been to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival before and was pleasantly surprised at all the beautiful creations.  Being a gacha event, it’s definitely a money-sucker, but if you’re determined you can come out with some pretty amazing stuff.  I was inspired by so many of the things I saw, my brain was bursting with ideas.  In addition this round of We ❤ Roleplay was chocked full of awesome designs.  I had to visit the Linden ATM before my trip was done.

Medieval-full_FINAL

The photos I have done here were inspired by and centered around the [bauwerk] Banquet table that is available at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I imagined a grand castle banquet hall lit with torches and candlelight, adorned in tapestries and banners, a table full with bountiful feast and the more I shopped, the more it came together.  {Junbug}‘s lovely period dress from We ❤ Roleplay was the perfect clothing choice for such a merry feast.

Medieval-feast_FINAL

One item that I want to show off to you that isn’t from either event, however, is this gorgeous necklace from an up and coming store called Empyrean Forge.  The details and texturing are very well done, and I’m pretty picky about my mesh.  And definitely about my jewelry.  So I was quite impressed with this piece and looking forward to seeing more from them.  They have a few items out on marketplace currently and  I’ve been told many more to come in the next several weeks.

Medieval-Face_FINAL

I may not be a hardcore RPer but you don’t have to be to enjoy all these goodies.  For me it’s just about imagination and playing dress up from time to time.

Now… LET US FEAST!
