“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. ♥

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. ♥

“Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a white horse, and she who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to her, and she went out conquering and to conquer.” 

Revelation 6:1-2

First part of a series. I’ve been working on this for a couple weeks, and I’m happy with how it’s turned out.

This series, and this picture and one other in particular, are dedicated to the awesome Daeberethwen of Honey Junkie, who’s been a great source of inspiration and wisdom for me since I started blogging. Thanks Daebae. ♥

So I really like Overwatch. Pharah’s in my top three most played heroes, and I in general just adore her aesthetic. I’ve been wanting to do some “casual” Overwatch hero pictures and with the release of Vae’s new jewelry at N21 and at ROMP, I finally felt like I was ready to do it. Also, I had to add the wedjat tattoo in Photoshop ’cause I couldn’t find a good Omega or Catwa one inworld. Hint hint makeup designers.

“They call her Widowmaker,” he says, mouth twisting in a wry smile. 

I roll my eyes at him. “Nice cliche,” I say in response. “Let me guess, she’s a ruthless killer, best in the department. No one can hold a candle to her. Right?”

He shifts uncomfortably. “Well,” he starts, “yeah. But she didn’t start out with just anyone, dude. She killed her–“

He cuts himself off at the sound of heels clicking over cement. She passes by us, and as she does her green eyes, poisonous bright, lock with mine, and I want to cringe away from the look I see in them. There’s nothing there, just a yawning void. I blink first. She keeps walking, leaving behind the scent of orchids.

I turn back to him and he grimaces. “Who did she kill?” I ask him, my voice hoarse and whispery. He doesn’t look at me as he answers.

“Her husband.”

There’s so much good stuff coming out right now that I don’t even know where to begin with it all. So I kind of tossed a bunch of things together because I’ve been wearing this outfit for like, 3 days, and I’m in love with it. (Obviously the shirt is new.)

Oh, I finally caved and got a Catwa head. I’m pretty much in love with this one.

Aw yis. Plastik did some beautiful Drow skins for this year’s Skin Fair that come with every applier you could ever want. :3 Vae has continued to provide applier support for all sorts of mesh bits that aren’t really used at large anymore, like the Ghetto Booty, Phat Azz, Lola Tangos, and other assorted pieces, so if you use any of them still Plastik might be your skinmaker of choice.

I actually took this picture without my mesh head, for once, even though the skin comes with Lelutka appliers. I liked the way it looked on my face, which has been true of a lot of Plastik’s skins in the past–they always looked great on my shape and gave my av the haughty look I aim for. What I liked a lot about the skins was the texture on the body, which reminded me of stars in a dark sky; it is beautifully detailed and well worth looking at up close.

Head over to Skin Fair and pick up a tone of these skins, btw! There are 20 tones and they are available for both men and women, which means that all you Drow guys out there have a really lovely set of options. ♥

New round of Genre started and this month’s theme is DRAG QUEENS.

Initially I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to make anything look cool enough, but as usual, Genre’s designers made it easy with their kickass offerings.

I’m wearing Mad’s RuGirls makeup set in Adore (named for Adore Delano), which comes with all the appliers you could want and the tattoo layers as well, and I’ve featured it here on the Lelutka Simone head. My cute nail polish with its animal print design is from Dark Passions’ Koffin Nails in The Prowl, the lipstick is an awesome prop from Little Llama, and I’m using one of NANTRA’s “Werk” poses to show it all off. ♥

Be sure to drag yourself over to Genre as soon as possible!

New round of Genre has started and that means new blog posts! This round is Regency, and it looks fantastic–lots of lovely dresses and jewelry and furniture.

I was very drawn to this necklace by Distorted Designs. It paired beautifully with the Dead Dollz Young Witch dress, adding just a touch of something old to it. It’s vaguely sinister, due to the black flowers, so I felt it was just right for me.

Check out Regency over at Genre!
