Sun Softly Setting


Storybook has been releasing a lot of moon-themed accessories lately, which I am beyond okay with! The new Luna Necklace, at The Fantasy Collective, matches the circlets from their previous Saga set really well! Though the Saga circlets only come in silver and gold, the silver can easily be tinted to match the rust necklace color (seen far right), so don't let the names deter you! The metal has an interesting grainy texture that I really enjoy, too. Storybook's metallic textures on their items are improving steadily (not that they were ever bad), so I look forward to future releases!

And/or when Alcyone & Awilix get their hands on cybernetic goodies and decide to wander around the Insilico sim. Who's to know which happened?!

Dragon Priestesses


Soooo.. my best SL friend and I REALLY enjoy wearing matching outfits and taking pictures. I don't think it has ever been more evident than in this set of photos. Luckily, we could still tell ourselves apart by our different shapes!


Read more below!


We are both sporting two new gorgeous accessories by [The Plastik]: the Banyari Horns, currently found at Fantasy Gacha Carnival, and the Ondalea Staff, which was debuted at Prismagica. Both of these beauties come with seriously impressive HUDs and gorgeous textures, which is to be expected from [The Plastik]. The staff is especially impressive to me, as it comes in a variety of sizes and SIX different Bento hold options (12 if you count the mirrored poses)

We are also decked out in gorgeous dragon finery, thanks to the Dragon Mistress set by Moon Elixir, also at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. While every color of this set is lovely, the way the teal color shifts to a soft purple is particularly nice. I really hope they work this set of colors into more of their fantasy releases, because wow!

Babes, Booze, & Birbs


Sometimes you need to be able to cut loose on a random beach with your ladies. When RL (or SL!) is getting you down, it's best to de-stress by dressing up and acting silly. Hanging around with these three always brings me back to cheerfulness, especially after a tough day!

We're all sporting leis from Anachron's Island Lei gacha, found at the current round of SaNaRae, as well as Parakeet Pals by HEXtraordinary and treats from ChicChica's Watermelonia set, both of which can be found at The Gacha Garden.

The Parakeet Pals are especially adorable! If you add them to your avatar, they will appear on your shoulder (great for a pirate buddy!), but you can also add them to your head or hands for fun. Two of the rares are a stand and a lovely manor-themed cage for these cute birbs, so you can also rez them and have them hang out at your home! The animations on them are smooth and adorable - they cock their heads quizzically and flap their little wings from time to time!


Photo taken at an awesome little beach we found - it's small, but decorated very well!

I N C A N D E S C E N T


If it isn't obvious from some of my past photos, I loooooove mixing dystopian and steampunk elements. These amazing hanging bulbs by ::Static:: can be found at the current round of The Gacha Garden. They have also offered an adorable gift - a matching idea bulb that will float above your avatar's head. These lights are all resizeable, and can be turned on and off with a click!

I paired the vintage lighting with my favorite dystopian outfit, which consists of pieces by [LAB737] and [The Forge]. 

I also included some of my favorite contact lenses, by <CyberLove>. I was shopping for neat cyborg eyes a while back, and stumbled upon their Dark Trooper Eyes. I wasn't sure of them, but for their super low price of 21 Linden, I decided it was worth a gamble. And it really paid off! These bad boys move with my Catwa eyes flawlessly (after slight tweaking to get them centered, which took maybe 30 seconds) and they are ANIMATED! Pretty much, they are perfect and are a great way to add interest to a steampunk, dystopian, or cybernetic character on the cheap.

We Captains Three

The current round of Genre, dedicated to sea-faring life, only has about a week left. There are lockets, tricorn hats, treasure chests, and even BENTO TENTACLE RINGS GUYS to be had, so don't miss out! Since everything at Genre is at least 25% off full price, it's always worth a trip (and a second trip, maybe a third!)

After stopping by SaNaRae to pick up these adorable "Elizabeth" outfits (dress, sleeves, and boots) by Sweet Lies, myself and my two..errr.. mateys skipped over to Genre to accessorize. We all love the tricorn hats by Senzafine - they fit over our different hairstyles with only minor adjustments, rather than being a huge struggle like most hats are! 

Also amazing was the jewelry selection in this round. We were all super excited about the Bento tentacle rings by .Drastic., for obvious reasons. (The reason? THEY. ARE. BADASS.) I also loved the Davy's Lock locket (center avatar) by +XAnSA+. It comes with a lot of stunning HUD choices, so you can match it to any sea-faring outfit you come up with.

September Fae


I find myself longing for the filtered sunlight and cool shadows of fall. The summer is entirely too hot for a frigid-hearted little fae like myself! I skipped over to Indie Teepee and picked up this stunning new face by Lumae - "Apoc" can be found in the desert portion of the festival. I love the tint to the upper face, the dark (I.E. PERFECT) eye makeup, and the delicate paint on the lower lip and chin. From there, I stopped by the newest round of Uber to grab this lovely little dress by Storybook. "Treat" is available in a mind boggling 25 colors. It's a perfect piece for any fantasy wardrobe.

The Crew


Genre has brought us another great round of objects you NEED in your roleplay life. Possibly my favorite stuff from the current round, which focuses on Seafaring life, is this furniture and decor set by LORE, called "Captain's Desk". This set comes with a TON of stuff to instantly add interest and awesomeness to your cabin. The chair, desk, treasure chest, and all the desk clutter are part of the set, so there is a LOT you can do with it!

Also, remember that everything at Genre is at least 25% off regular price, so every month a new round comes with the opportunity to get amazing themed items without making your wallet cry!

Soft Indie


Storybook has released an adorable dress at Indie Teepee. This dress comes in 25 lovely colors, and can be worn as a dress, shift, or even a soft nightgown. I chose to wear it while lounging around my house after getting back from the festival. I think it matches my decor pretty well!

The Epiphany brought a new round of gacha machines loaded with things we all obviously /NEED/. The "Saga" set by Storybook is a great fantasy set. My gorgeous friend Lix and I paired the top, sleeves, and stockings with the Storybook "Zephyr" panties, as they have a really nice metallic sheen to them that works really well with the metal accents of the "Saga" set.

G L O W F A E


I wanted to take a post or so to focus on my newest sponsor, _-FAS-_. Previously known for their mer and underwater products as [Tsunami], they have recently rebranded and are churning out a wide range of beautifully textured fantasy decor and accessories. The variety of colors and types of flowers available currently are stunning - as you can see, the glow works equally well in light and dark windlights!

Also awesome are the Druid Branches _-FAS-_ has released. These come in "normal" and fantasy tones, and the texture and glow are just as detailed as the flower decor. If you want to be a dryad, druid, or earth-themed fey, these branches are a must-have!

It's the final day of Summerfest, sadly! It's your last chance to rush to the sim and pick up all of the amazing pieces that will get you through the rest of this hot season. My friend Lix and I loaded up early and pretty much lived at the beach for a few days. We got a good dose of sun, as well as some sand in places I'd rather not mention!

The "Paradise" set by Moon Elixir is a summer must-have - the fit is phenomenal, the shell detail adds fun beachy flair, and the acid wash texture for the tank tops is seriously pretty. We paired this set with the adorable anklets from the "Moon Baby" set, also by Moon Elixir.

Also available at Summerfest is the hair on the right, called "The Summer Hair" by Olive. With just the hint of a breeze blowing it, this hair is great for subtle editorial looks.

Am Exotic Birb

Sometimes a gal just wants to bask in the sun and let the win ruffle her feathers, okaaaaay?

This lovely swimsuit is by Baiastice at Summerfest, which is going on until July 20th.. so just enough time to get there and get your summer necessities, but not ENOUGH time to put it off! If you haven't gone yet, you are missing out an an annual treat - a full sim dedicated to the best parts of the season!

"My date book shows that you're actually overdue for a Judgment Day. We have an opening later today, I'll pencil you in."


I had this really funny mental image of a merciless angel secretary that has to juggle appointments for things like Judgment Day, the Anti-Christ being born, and had to plan out all the plagues in Egypt. She started as a temp and can't make a decent cup of coffee, but is surprisingly efficient at... the other stuff, so she's been kept on full time.

This gorgeous dress, "Hum" by Storybook, is draped in a really pretty way; the back and sides are way more exposed than the front, which is really a lovely combination and shows plent of skin while still covering up the essentials... without having to toy with an alpha HUD!

The Three Sisters


I really wanted this photo to look like an old photograph or postcard, and I'm pretty pleased with the end result! The in world phototools have a lot of versatility to them if you're willing to sit down and experiment for a good long while!

This gorgeous bridge (and the lantern silhouetted in the back) are both by LORE from the current round of Genre. These gorgeous landscaping pieces will only be discounted for the duration of the event, so make sure you get them sooner rather than later! Each bridge and lantern come in 3 color options - plain, aged, and mossy. The mossy version of the bridge is honestly going to come in handy for fantasy stuff too, so I definitely recommend that one!

Wrap Me In My Daydreams


Is there any event quite like Lootbox? I always find myself looking forward to it, while my wallet cries from the moment I teleport in.

For this round, Storybook has released a stunning set of warrior silks, called Zephyr. A full set would consist of panties, silk wrap, spear, and shield. There are two rare Lootbox colors of the wrap, which in my opinion in a showstopper, but there are also a ton of gorgeous colors that are commons (including this blue one I'm wearing).

The fit on this set is phenomenal, as is the texturing; look at that metallic shine on those panties!

If you're like me and love to match small stuff, pick up the Gosalyn nail polish set by [The Plastik], found at The Kawaii Project's current round. One of the nail colors perfectly matched my rose gold panties, and it made me ridiculously happy.

The Birdcage


Genre's newest round is inspired by eastern Asia and the rich cultures and history found there. Everything found at Genre is at least 25% off for the duration of the event, so make sure you check it out - there are ALWAYS good deals to be found. 

 I was really lucky in that two of my friends immediately said they'd be my models for a couple of group photos, which I love more than anything!

I'd love to focus on the folding screen in the back by Tsuru's Artifacts - not only is it lovely as a static object, but it folds and unfolds at a click! I adore little features like that. This lovely screen would work great as a privacy partition or in a doorway. Also by Tsuru's Artifacts is the pretty wall scroll to the left!

Also lovely is the side table by Mirage Treasure Co. The texture and detail on it are beautiful!

The table and chairs my friends are sitting at/on is by Anachron... so you know the texture is nice and the chair cushions are nicely patterned! The multiple sits are also animated, which is a really nice touch.

We're Just Two Lost Souls Swimming In A Fishbowl


The Betta Aquariums set by HEXtraordinary, currently found at The Arcade, makes me smile so big. They have a pretty extensive list of small pet gachas, and this one is my new favorite!There are tons of colors of male and female betta fish to collect, as well as some adorable snails! They are all animated on their own, and also can be activated with each of the rare aquariums to adventure in their little space! my favorite is the Brass Aquarium; I love the curly legs it stands on. The 25 pull reward is adorable - it's that grumpy lil fish in the baggy - it has both hold and rez versions!

I paired this set with the Vindeluna decor set by Plastik, which is also at The Arcade! The details and texturing on this set is beyond gorgeous, and honestly the commons are as pretty as the rares!

My gorgeous friend Lix, on the left, is wearing the Ask hair by Lamb, also (big surprise!) found at The Arcade. This hair is gorgeous. Lix and I usually have different taste in hair, but we both LOVE this style!

Rarest Specimens


I am in love with the Vindeluna decor set by [The Plastik], which is available at the current round of The Arcade for 75L per pull. The set combines industria, obscura, and some truly amazing texturing. For reference, The two avatars are full size! I had a lot of fun making everything else giant-sized for the photo set. The Vindeluna items' texturing held up to being scaled amazing well, and really showed off the details. Also, which I personally find pretty fantastic, the items didn't jump up in prims when resized!

Summer Strumming


I have one word for you. No... two. MERKITTIES. UKULELES. Guys, seriously!

I didn't play a TON of machines at this round of The Arcade, but the ones I did, I hit HARD. But when there's a gorgeous bikini set, a ukulele, and merkitties to get.. what choice did I really have?

You can't lose playing the Birdy machine, honestly. The bikinis fit great, the accessories are gorgeous, and the tattoo is worth every Linden I spent to get it!

I did soooo much trading to get the kitties in the snow tone that I wanted, too! So now I'm not only a crazy cat lady when on land :D

Also amazing are the ukuleles in the Reign machine. I own this wooden one and the pineapple one, and have zero regrets. They have a lovely Bento playing animation and a touch on/off sound that's really pleasant background noise!

Overall, I spent way more than planned at The Arcade... again. Big surprise!

Such Sweet Things


The Ittybitty Bikini set by Sweet Thing. at the newest round of The Arcade is AMAZING. A summer must-have, there are bikinis, accessories, and suuuper adorable floaties included! I am in love with the rezzable versions of the floaties - they come with a handful of animated sit poses, are wonderfully textured, and even rotate slowly (which you can turn off with one click). The pull price is 75$L, which is fair because of the superb fit and HUD the bikinis have.

Also featured above are the new scales by Cynefin - the ones I'm wearing are the fatpack exclusive; it's transparent, but when you have materials enabled, the scales shimmer in the light beautifully. It's an amazing set to have for merfolk, dragonkin, naga, and demons. The fatpack is 1500$L and in my opinion is beyond worth it!

Sharper Than A Serpent's Tooth


A couple friends were hosting and DJing a serpent-themed set, and it was suuuch a good excuse to bust out all of my favorite snake-themed items! 

The latest round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival (still going on, if you haven't had time to hit it up yet) was very kind to us snake-lovers. Both the Viper set by MaGma and the Satrinah set by Aisling were there, and they fit together beautifully. I was especially pleased that the tops & bottoms to the Satrinah outfit are commons, and come with amazing HUDS for the metals, jewels, and even the transparency of the silks! I had never heard of MaGma before this, but they definitely converted me to a fan immediately!

I also want to draw attention to my earrings, which are both by [The Plastik]. I had missed out on getting the ones on the left, the Kobre Earrings, at the last round of Memento Mori... BUT the store owner graciously sold me a pair when I contacted her about them. They fit the Mandala Fantasy Elf Ears perfectly, but each of the 3 pieces is move-able... as you can see I copied one, enlarged it, and turned it into a little snek bebe to carry around! As usual with [The Plastik], the included HUD has a TON of colors that will delight!
