“A purely instinctual creature, all desire and joy and rage.”

Jean Grey is probably my favorite of the X-Men, especially her Phoenix storyline (NOT from the movie, despite the above quote). As a result I’ve been kicking around an idea for a Phoenix-inspired picture, and played around with Photoshop a bit to get some nice effects. I wanted her to be in the White Hot Room, so I didn’t go too crazy on the background. Pretty pleased with how this turned out nonetheless!

Note: The flames were a gift to me from the lovely ColeMarie Soleil of Cole’s Corner, who does truly spectacular and beautiful particle effects. She sent them to me at a point when I was struggling for inspiration, so this picture is dedicated to her in appreciation. Thanks, Cole. ♥

Not everyone knows this, but I’m actually a Spaniard. My mother is from Spain, and I’m a dual citizen and bilingual. I’ve wanted to do a sort of Spanish-themed image for awhile now, and with the release of this lovely hair from Beusy I felt I could finally get something I wanted. I had to combine it with Kaorinette’s beautiful cheek brands, of course!

Btw, if you haven’t gone already, Beusy is offering both of her hairs at N21 for L$375 each for the full fatpack. It’s an incredible deal, so don’t miss out.

“What do you fear, lady?” Aragorn asked.
“A cage,” Éowyn said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.”

-J.R.R. Tolkien

Pretty stuff from Azuchi at this round of Lootbox, an event with a fun twist on normal gachas–when you win a rare, you get a handful of items in the box.

As usual, Sands has killed it with beautiful modeling and texturing on his pieces, so please check out his Shieldmaiden machine now at Lootbox. ♥

Was recently accepted to become a Cureless blogger, which is a huge honor for me, as I’ve been a fan of Kaorinette’s work back when she was still under the antielle name. In this post I’m wearing the new rare dress from her set for the Arcade, which is called the Red Queen’s Realm, and is full of beautifully crafted pieces that are just a little titillating.

Really excited to post this since it’s my first time ever previewing an Arcade set!

Rewind.

What a fun, adorable event, honestly. I’m a 90’s kid, and everything that the designers have put out has given me an almost physical wave of nostalgia. Hell, the two gachas by Plastik and CureMore (the Cureless/Moon Amore collaboration brand) are basically my childhood in a box.

Moon tickled my grunge-loving self with her two new hairstyles, and for once I picked the shorter hair. She named them Lithium and Sex Type Thing–two of my favorite songs of pretty much all time.

It’s absolutely worth heading over to check out the awesome stuff available. I’ll be going back for a few more things shortly.

Thanks to both Vae and Kaorinette for the adorable gachas. ♥

Hey everyone. Back from a holiday hiatus, and am slowly working my way back into blogging.

The Simone head from Lelutka was the first mesh head I ever bought, and I finally got around to picking up the Bento version. It’s really beautifully made and the animations are smooth and lovely. The new addons–teeth!!–were what decided me; I love how well made everything about this head is. The HUD’s great, and I can’t wait to see what else Lelutka will be putting forward for us in the future.

This shot is pretty much completely raw, straight from SL, so you can see the immense quality in the new head. Absolutely recommend picking it up if you’re a fan of mesh heads.
