Genre’s new round is Medieval!

Fun round with some very cool items from the designers, but I picked my favorite to showcase here. :> I love this new skin from Lumae; I believe this is her first of her new face line, and the ad is very reminiscent of Elizabeth I. I thought originally of doing an Elizabeth-style picture, but I found this awesome cemetary at Order of Avalon and basically ended up doing something completely different.

I’m also wearing a few pieces from Vae’s new jewelry set, the Victorienne, over at The Secret Affair. As usual it’s beautifully detailed and comes in seven different metal types, with a HUD to change the opal/pearl-like gemstones featured on each piece.

Get thee to Genre, go!

omg HUGE NEWS FOR ME: I got accepted as an official blogger for Plastik!

I am a huge geek for Plastik and have been ever since I started out in SL. Vae does wonderful textures and models, gorgeous makeup, awesome skins, etc. There’s always been something fae about her store, and when I picked up some of her new releases I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them.

I’m a big fan of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, and Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness and monarch of the Unseelie–Winter–Court of the Fae is a fairly important character in the books. I recently finished re-reading the newest entry in the series, Skin Game, and Mab once again features in it. So this interpretation of Mab is influenced by Jim Butcher, and uses pieces from Vae’s beautiful Petrichor Druid gacha set at Whimsical. I’ve also picked up the new Lo hair from Little Bones at Uber and the Kat applier from Glam Affair at We ♥ RP to round it out.

You may also notice I’ve been working on my editing techniques! I really wanted to do something special for my first blog post for Plastik, so I decided to challenge myself and see if I couldn’t do something really lovely, and I’m pleased with how it turned out. Thanks to Daeberethwen Arbenlow for all her advice on Plurk ♥

HI EVERYBODY!

Hi Dr. Ni–wait. Okay, anyway. Hey guys, I just got back from vacation a few days ago and knew I wanted to get started with some of my blog backlog. A bunch of stuff happened while I was out, namely a ton of events, the end of Hair Fair ’15, and I was accepted to blog for Genre! The new round will be “Age of Dragons” and I’ll be putting something together soon for that.

However, yesterday marked the opening of an event I hate to love: Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

I love it because the stuff people make for it–including this incredible set from Aisling, the Arius Queen–is just drop-dead gorgeous. So many creators really pull out all the stops and put out things you absolutely must have, with wonderful attention to craftsmanship and detail.

I hate it because gachas are literally Satan. I always tell myself I won’t play anymore, but I do, because I’m WEAK. asdjfeerfkdjdjlgk

But this time it was so, so worth it. The Arius Queen set is stunning. Aisling’s work is always some of the best on the grid, with an attention to detail that I personally treasure. I can’t get over how much I enjoy the small parts of this, like the fold and buttons on the skirt, and the beautiful chains draped all over the chest and headdress. Another feather in Aisling’s cap, once all is said and done.

So! If you’re interested in picking it up for yourself, I’ve provided a taxi to the FGC in the credits, and remember to check out the work of the designers who’ve put up machines, because this round has proven to be one of my favorites.

“You are not among friendssss here, ssssurface-dweller!”

I love, love, love the naga as a fantasy race. Lamiae too, but naga in particular I think are cool as shit. So when JOMO released their Naga Avatar, I promptly freaked the FUCK out.

It’s so goddamn beautiful. I can’t even. It includes everything you see here, along with a pair of bracelets and a starfish bra that I’m not wearing, and JOMO’s mermaid AO.

The only reason I was able to get it so quickly is because a kind gentlemen saw me getting my outfit back on while I was demo’ing it, asked me what I’d been trying on, then gave me the L to buy it right then and there–saying nothing more than “It’s your lucky night. Have fun.”

So thank you, stranger I won’t name here (for privacy’s sake). Things have been rough and you honestly made my week.

I forgot to put on my sexy bracelets from United Colors for this picture, but it turned out really nicely anyway and I’m quite proud of it. I hope you guys enjoy! I paired it with the Naga accessories from the gacha at !deviousMind and snapped this shot at Haven of Mermaids.
