It Has Begun

Standard

Even a well lit place, can hide salvation
A map to a one man maze that never sees the sun
Where the lost are the heroes
And the thieves are left to drown
But everyone knows by now
Fairy-tales are not found
They are written in the walls

As we walk in a straight line
Down in the dirt with a landslide approaching
But nothing could ever stop us
From stealing our own place in the sun
We will face the odds against us
And run into the fear we run from

It has begun
Into the dark below
Evading shadows
Blind in a rabbit’s hole
We fall beneath the earth
And watch the shell come unraveled
As the seeds begin to rise
Awaking a starlit fate as we wait in the night
It’s written in the walls

 

Well, it almost has begun.  Fantasy Gacha Carnival is looming on the horizon and I am so happy to be able to show you a few sneak peeks from the designers as they begin to roll out their hard work.  Opening Date is August 8th so time to ready your lindens for what is in store.  Also do not forget Hair Fair is wrapping up, you can get this amazing hair and so many others now while the event is still running.  The money goes to an amazing cause – Wigs for Kids!  So why wait?

Sweet Talk

Standard

Lift me up on my honour
Take me over this spell
Get this weight of my shoulder
I carried it well
Loose these shackles of pressure
Shake me out of these chains
Lead me not to temptation
Hold my hand harder
Ease my mind
Roll down the smokescreen
And open the sky

Let me fly
Then I need a release from
These troubles of mine
Fix my feet
When they’re stumbling
And well you know it hurts sometimes
You know it’s going to bleed sometimes

Dig me out from this thorn tree
Help me bury my shame
Keep my eyes from the fire
They can’t handle the flame
They’ve cut out from my brothers
When most of them fail
I carried it well

You see something, and you just need it.  It is really how I felt about everything in this picture.  I absolutely had to have this tail from Half Deer for FLF, it made me so happy its crazy.  But it does match nicely with her Velven ears available in gacha form.  I traditionally buy my hair in ginger or natural packs but Red Mint found themselves getting extra business from me with this fantasy color pack.  Another of my had to have purchases and hey it went to a good cause, Hair Fair is still running and now is the time to get there and make those purchases!  Especially while those proceeds are still going to Wigs for Kids!  Also everyone needs a micro bikini in their life, EVERYONE.  I happen to love every single color haste did in this little mesh number and you can try and buy them over at L’amitie Summer Market right now.  PS… have you demoed Rose from Glam Affair yet?  Why not??!!

Round Here…

Standard

 

 

 

Round here we’re carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs

Deep thoughts in the late evening, still I managed to produce a picture out of a rather up and down sort of mood.  Round here…

Just a remind do not forget to stop by Collabor88 before the deals return to the main stores.

You know when you see something that is so very random and you just insist it has to be yours and you know you will find something special to do with it?  That is how I felt about this hair when I spied it at Hair Fair.  LaNoir Soleil Designs  has released this fun hair in a variety of tones and it even comes with a pretty cool headpiece but I had something different in mind.  And then Aisling came along with their AMAZING new release for The Secret Affair and it all fell together.  Each piece is part of a gacha set ranging from common to rare and one more stunning then the next.  I paired up this fun look with a limited edition Glam Affair skin.  (Now sold out!)

Limited events are always tricky, it comes down to a lot of luck and praying your computer will survive the insane load when you get in.  This Glam Affair drow skin was worth the time invested in to getting there, that is all I can say.  It is gorgeous.  Tableau Vivant has heaps of new styles out at various events right now but this gem from Hair Fair really caught my attention.  It is designed around this texture change chain which I think is pretty awesome.  Can we also talk about this bracer and claw set from Random Matter?  You can pick it up for a sweet price right now at We <3 Roleplay in a variety of metal tones.

The Nameless One

Glam Affair took me off guard with some new tones she is releasing and it was hard for me to decide between the pair which I was going to play with first!  I FINALLY settled on tropic which will be out for The Season’s Story soon!  YES they will have appliers for slink hands and feet and the body which I am wearing here as well as some of the other usual suspects!  I could not resist pairing it up with this gorgeous hand and earring set from Aisling out now at We <3 Roleplay as well as the shawl I am wearing.  My epic desert like background?  you can get the pyramids at We <3 Roleplay as well!

So I have put some teaser pictures up of We <3 Roleplay so far but I got an opportunity to blog with Maci for the event which is something we very rarely get to do together.  She picked the pose and mood, I set the backdrop and we had fun.  :D  Time to stop by and get your fantasy goodies if you have not yet!  You can see Maci’s version here and you can refer to her for what SLURLS I did not have on hand.:  Show Me Some Mercy

The Distance

Standard

 

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
Engines pumping and thumping in time.
The green light flashes, the flags go up.
Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup.
They deftly maneuver and muscle for rank,
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank.
Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns.
Their prowess is potent and secretly stearn.
As they speed through the finish, the flags go down.
The fans get up and they get out of town.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he’s driving and striving and hugging the turns.
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

He’s going the distance.
He’s going for speed.
She’s all alone
In her time of need.
Because he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse,
He’s going the distance.
 

Nothing to really add here, this picture was just because.  ♥

Viking’s Word

But the law is law and will be (Indeed)
And I gave a Viking’s word

 

The Fantasy Collective is in full swing and now is the time to go check it out for all things Viking!  I am pretty excited about this theme and just about every possible item you could find there.  Sadly I could not fit it all in one single picture so just go, do it, now!  Or I will bash with with this shield from Noodles and tell you to Eat Wood!  (This viking also confesses she forgot to change shoes and did this entire snow scene in Macaw flip flops.  I am going to run with that is pretty badass honestly.)

Time of the Season

Summerfest opened today and it has been the hot topic of conversation.  Have your lindens at the ready, there is so much to see and buy.  I have to just put it out there how impressed I am by the overall quality of everything there.  The designers really went all out and it was hard not to buy everything.  My wallet says I came close though.
