[tunics and maidens]

In the past week I had some more spare time and decided to roam the grid for Lucky Chairs, Midnight Manias and some special events that are running right now, and I got lucky enough to find some nice outfits for free - or a very low price. If you're into medieval roleplay, Gor or working on a Halloween costume already, you might like the following items!

[tunics and maidens]

This lovely dress is a Lucky Chair-prize from [knickknack], a store that specializes on authentic medieval clothing and accessories. I really like the lush textures and the variety it can be worn, from a simple, rather revealing tunic to a modest dress reaching down to your ankles. The water yoke is another item you can win at the store's LC and comes in an animated (walk included) and non-animated version. When you're there, take a good look around, since there is 4 chairs in total to be found!

[tunics and maidens]

These stunning Celtic tunics are from De la SOUL and unisex, with a special love for detail when it comes to the beautiful embroidery adorning the sleeves and the lower seam. As you can see, it looks also nice worn without the prim attachments, so you can vary the look, and the rust-shaded pants are also included. The golden version is available for 10 L$ at the Marketplace, whereas the aqua-shaded one is only 25 L$ at the Fall Fete-event, which only runs til October 4th - so hurry if you wanna call it your own!

Unicorn without horn

It was always horrible when Sandri forgot where her favourite being was. It made her feel lost and sad. She would not be able to eat any cookies until she would have phant back. The worst was always when she was all desperate her blood started to turn black and it tinted the veins so that her skin wasn't as pale as usually.
Lonesome horselike being III
Sandri was a unicorn and was currently treated for drug addiction so she felt anyways often sad and exhausted. She had found her way from the fairy lands into the world of the humans by mistake and as most spiritual beings she did not enjoy her time there at all. Until she met a witch who offered her a drug which would help her to deal with humans.
Lonesome horselike being II
First the price she had to pay to get the drug was bearable. The witch wanted some of her hair or a bit of blood. Sandri had no problem to pay with those things but of course she became more and more addicted to the drug. It did not only help her to deal with humans it also made her feel great and it was like she would be in the fairylands again. Finally the witch asked Sandri to pay with her horn for the drug. The unicorn first did not want to pay that price but after a week without the week she would have given also a hoof just to feel as great as with the drug. So she lost her horn. After this the witch was not intrested in selling her any more drugs as Sandri had sold all she had. Members of the supernatural rescue squad found her under a bridge where she had been searching for a troll who might be willing to kill and eat her and brought her to an asylum. She was not happy there but the other sick beings were supernaturals like her so it was a bit easier. And she had phant whom she had forgotten on a bench while watching the stars in the night luckily he had stayed there so she was able to find him again.

[not one of your many boys]

[not one of your many boys]

The exhibition I was visiting faded from the spotlight as soon as my eyes came to rest on the slender being that was slouching in such a confident, almost luring fashion on one of the offered seats, illuminated from a soft light from above, like it was a piece of art itself. I found myself stopping in my track, my eyes drawn with wonder and delight to the one that was looking back at me with a nearly mocking gaze from dark-rimmed hues, and the challengingly risen chin made me wonder if my thoughts had been read... yet, I approached, unable not to stare, to not worship this diversity of beauty - male, female? I did not know, but honestly, I couldn't have cared less when I leaned in and felt my tie being grabbed, and a throaty-soft voice uttered into my ear: "You can't have me... I'm not one of your many boys." As I blushed in a deep shade of crimson, caught in the act as I was, I saw a teasing shimmer simmering in those expressive eyes of light and darkness, knowing that our game had just begun - and that it wasn't me making the rules.

By know I've realized that I'm not only having a slight addiction to mesh itself, but specifically when it comes to mesh-made footwear. Not many things have ever bugged me as much as the weird positioning of prims when trying to sit down in overknee-boots, and I'm really glad that the times of my misery are over now - even more when the solution to this problem is as gorgeous as Miamai's recently released Hiatus boots. They come in 14 colours, and each shade is available in 4 different materials: gloss, which I am wearing, leather, laced and matte - that makes it a total of 56 pairs to pick from! Needless to say that I'm in boots heaven, right? The pants and corset I'm wearing are from A:S:S and have been a part of a special edition that isn't available anymore, but you can still find similar corsets in a variety of shades and patterns in store. The lovely blouse with the oversized bow is from *COCO*, where the clearance sale is still running.

Dressed for Spaceadventures

Latex clothes are great for some roleplay. They can be used as uniforms for example on spaceships and of course they look great. The suits on the picture and the fitting shoes are sold currently in a 10 Linden sale which is taking part at Port Seraphine. I like the red and graphit one very much. Those have a sculpted collar and cuffs which causes a lightly different and actually comfy look. The teal one works very well as uniform on a spaceship or as suit to wear while diving. The shoes are mod and fit also small avatars. There are more stores which take part in the 10 L$ sale. The suits come from a store with the name Gallactic which seems to be a sideproject of the owner of Pixeldolls as she is the creator and some of the suits also are sold as Pixeldolls ones. Beside this the participants are Pixeldolls, romance, bewildebeest and bilo. The sale at Port Seraphine will end at 9am slt thurs.

Some prophets say heaven and hell are infinite. Others only suppose that only heaven would be infinite while they would be caught on earth which they see as hell. Only few mortals understand at the end when death carries them to their final destination. Those are mainly poets and now and then a mathmatican. No dead priest ever managed to understand the glory of hell and the fear of heaven. This is not a problem as nobody cares about death priests.
One of the truths of heaven and hell is that there are places where both overlap. Those are the spots where the ambassadors of heaven and hell meet.
Sirael would have hated his task if he would have been able to hate. So he only felt uncomfortable. He knew with whom he would have to talk. Hell was never kind to the servants of heaven not even to their own attendants so it was clear that Sebanius would be the ambassador of hell. Sebanius his love, Sireal formed his hands to fists when he remembered the time they spend together. The joy of hearing Sebanius sing next to him in the heavenly choirs and the feeling of the wind in their wings while they flew together over the new born earth. And the smell of human blood on Sebanius pale and perfect skin.
Waiting Angel
Now they would meet again. Sirael tried to concentrate on the things they would need to discuss. Hell was running out of space at least they said so and wanted to grow. But to keep the balance it would be needed that heaven would grow as well. The thought that he would meet Sebanius in a moment made him nervous.
Sebanius was able to smell Sirael's nervousness on his way into the garden. His lips curled to a light grin. He had not seen him for centuries but it seemed like the angel had not changed at all. Different than himself. He had changed a lot since he left heaven.
Black angel II
And he knew that Sirael would change a lot as well. Soon. Sebanius followed the smell of fear and excitement knowing that he would find his former lover at its source. He would never admit it but he missed the angel. Sirael had been so kind and careing. It always was like Sebanius was most important for him and Sebanius had enjoyed that feeling. But serving in heaven was exhausting and sometimes he had the feeling that he would never get rid of the blood of the humans he had to kill. The problem was not so much that he killed them more that some of them got into heaven and always stared at him when he passed by. Their glance made him feel uncomfortable and in the end it made him leave heaven. Of course he met some of his former victims also in hell but those never dared to look at him. They knew that they were guilty not like the ones in heaven who were collateral damage.
Finally he found Sirael and smiled to the angel forcing himself not to shiver as he saw how the angel shivered when hearing his voice. The conversation would be most intresting.
Black and White Angel
Fallen Gods Inc. released a new skin line and fitting outfits to those skins. The skins are available in three skintones and in several makeup versions. I liked Raphael with the Corruption makeup best. The skins come all in a version with and one without freckles. All of the skins have an androgyn look and of course there absolutly no skin imperfections. The used shape fits to the skin. It has an average height and looks androgyn although it isn't the shape of an untrained man. And its mod which allows to edit it if there is anything you d like to change at it in the end.
The arcangel outfit is unisex and available in black and white. It comes with a long skirt, shoulder pad, cheststrap and a bracier for the arm. For females is a chestcloth included which is worn instead of the cheststrap. The shoulder pad and the bracier are decorated with feathers which look like a wing. On the bracier is also a golden chinese sign which says "Faith". The sets include a normal and a smaller version of the items. Its possible to resize all parts and it was possible to make the skirt so small that it even fits my normal female avatar. As everything from Fallen Gods Inc. the skins, the outfits and the shape are great for roleplay. I like it that it is possible to play a fallen angel as well as a angel who is still serving heaven with the skin. And Im amazed by the beauty of the avatar although there are most likely no ugly angels. The hair comes from Wasabi Pills.

Skin: ANGELICUS Raphael +Fallen Gods Inc.+ Corruption (990 L$ one makeup 2200 L$ four makeup and 5600 L$ Fatpack with 12 skins)

It's all in the eyes

They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul and these eyes are certainly have a lot to say but whose soul are they the window to? Well it's certainly correct to say that eyes are very important when it comes to your avatars look. It's often a part that many overlook, or find one pair that they like and stick with them but I think that's such a shame especially when there are so many fantastic eyes around even though I have a vast amount of eyes I love to collect more. Somehow these eyes seem to make me look quite sultry- nice :)

 It's just as well I have sultry eyes as they add to my little saucepot look. The top and skirt are both from Sakide and much skimpier than I am used to wearing but I couldn't help but adore these items they're cool a little flirty and I like the detail. With the skirt it's the belt and the top I just love the teasing nature of the fallen straps.

These boots!!  which are on a Midnight mania board at Death row designs are a fantastic unisex item. It was Dagmar that brought them to my attention and I'm so glad she did! Dagmar also blogged the boots HERE.
