Lake of Dreams

with 2 comments

“Lake of Dreams
Each island a risen fantasy
Safely hid within stone walls
Sunlit waters guarded by swans
Venture there by faery boat
Enact the ancient ceremonies
Enjoy the blissful nights”

The June Deco(c)rate had a theme of Enchanted, so I thought I’d build a scene that was a bit unusual and magical.  Little islands huddle inside a walled lake, it’s another version of the secret garden. All set up for a wedding reception, then later on climb the stairs for a night of bliss. Many thanks to Duvet Day for providing the amazing build and other gacha pieces which are currently available at the Cosmopolitan Event.

Here’s some close-ups in a less extravagant Windlight:-

This is a really lovely wedding set by Your Dreams. There’s a couple of rezzers, one for the ceremony and one for the reception, which is great if you’re on limited prims as you could rez one after the other very quickly. Plus a box of all the separate items should you wish to rez just a few of them.

Swan Island featuring my favourite Little Branch tree – the Wild Sassafras, it’s charming the way the tree trunks wrap around each other. So nice to see their Norway Maple in the Deco(c)rate subscription box, too.

As the new year begins it’s a great time for group gifts with stores wishing to get customers’ attention, and Heth Haute Couture is no exception. For us gents, there’s the “William Men’s Suit” which is a whole outfit including shoes. Here’s what you get in the pack:-

~ A classic couture slim fit jacket with standing collar. The fabric is a heavily embroidered pattern in shades of grey, black and tan with pops of white. The accent colour is repeated in the white silk shirt and collar. Black crepe slacks match the jacket. This is an all-in-one Mesh to fit 5 standard sizes XS  – XL. I was wearing the size M.

~ All-in-one Alpha layer… it’s a couple of clicks to fit this suit, so easy.

~ Polished wingtip leather shoes and a pair of very useful filler socks for that perfect fit.

Here’s a view from the reverse to show the jacket’s texturing.

The chair I used was from the December Deco(c)rate pack –
Stockholm & Lima: Bennington Chair (Green) – it has some great poses and is only 2 Land Impact.
