Green Silks

She adored her new, fresh outfit. Green was her favourite colour, and she wore it whenever she could. For certain weeks of the year she donned red and gold, now and then she had white on, for a few days she was even clad in pink…. but nothing was like the silky, soft, bright green. She felt alive, blooming and splendid when she could wear her emerald dress.
Green Silks
It was May and the last light pink flowers just dropped off the branches of the old peach tree in the garden. The fresh, tender green leaves were still growing but they already foretold a glorious summer. The tree softly rustled as if it wanted to dance in the sunshine. Spring has finally arrived.

I seldom write about Gorean fashion (as in many aspects the so-called philosophy of Gor openly clashes with some of my fundamental principles in any life whatsoever), and I never participate at an event about modern clothes (please convince me about the importance of buying a pair of SL jeans when I can do that any time IRL...). Said that, I must admit I was smitten by the amazing silks and jewellery set that I found in the Event Hollywood Swag Bag offered by Kastle Rock. The topknot and the eyes are also an Event Hollywood gift, and you still have the chance to get them before this weekend is over. I picked up the skin in an Easter egg hunt that will be on for the whole month of April. There are 120 (!!) eggs waiting for you at Dark Romance until May 1st, and if you’re not into freebies... well, the place itself is worth a visit. :)

Outfit and jewellery: "Maya" Gown in Earthen by Kastle Rock - Event Hollywood Swag Bag gift (0 LS). The event is on until April 14th.
Hair: "Kate" in Black by Miss C. - Event Hollywood Swag Bag gift (0 LS)
Skin: "Elissa" by WoW Skins - Dark Romance Easter Egg Hunt gift (0 LS)
Eyes: "Image Eyes" in Branch Green by Amacci - Event Hollywood Swag Bag gift (0 LS)
Pose: Izumiya - free gift in the shop (0 LS)
I took the picture at World’s End Garden, freshly rebuilt by Lucia Genesis.

Bathed in the light of Sun and Moon

"Come on down to the beach" they said. Each to their own of course. The many lands had many people, and weather to match. The chill in the north, tropical heat in the south, bound east and west by deserts and rock. They would stretch out under sun or moon, enjoying the play of light across skin, sand and snow. 3 Skin : : S u g a r : Cry My Heart Out -C- :3:

Asasara was thirsty. Her scales were drying out slowly, yet with a deadly certainty. She knew she needed fresh blood, and very soon... but, in order to quench her thirst, she needed to find a suitable fountain and, in order to find a suitable fountain to sate her craving, she needed to shift shapes and become a desirable human. Preferably a human female. Asasara shivered and reached out for her magic staff, coiled her tail around the long handle, and heaved a long sigh. 
Sssznake She so hated being a human... all those complicated limbs, arms and legs that one had to coordinate in order to move around. The thin, defenceless skin... Asasara preferred her sinuous reptile body and the brilliant scales to any other shape or form, but what could she do? She had to survive. Asasara quietly started hissing the chants required for the ritual, and sadly listened to the first cracking noises coming from her bones that foretold the imminent transformation.

I’m happy that, in a single blog post, I can show you so many wonderful goodies from so many SL designers whose work I admire a lot. The deadlines are short, yet I do trust many of you can visit the shops and special events before they close... especially because the prices are practically nonexistent.
Skin: “Blood Snakes” by Fallen Gods Inc. – made for the current Genre event dedicated to Goth style, until April 12th (100 L$).
Eyes: “Feral Eyes” in Ember by Sterling Artistry – camping prize from the shop (0 L$).
Hair: GankeD. I am so sorry that Misti Merriman is definitely out of business in SL. Until recently she had some stuff available on the SL Marketplace but now it looks like she’s wound up that, too.
Outfit: “Cersei” in Pink by Evie’s Closet – for the special sale at Adore&Abhor that celebrates the 5th anniversary of the shop in SL, until April 16th (75 L$).
