Stairway to Heaven

with 8 comments

 

This stunning Baroque Terrace from 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] has been in my Inventory for a while because I couldn’t do anything near to the beautiful posts my fellow bloggers have been doing, but this morning I got some inspiration. Having rezzed the terrace on my building platform yet again, I looked at the large amount of steps in the build that amounted to a veritable white stairway rising up to the sky… Stairway to Heaven!  Back down to the garden, I cleared everything off the lake, rezzed a white backdrop and it all started to make sense.

The terrace contains the statues and an oval platform at the top surrounded by a balustrade and another set of steps down the other side.  Some topiary bushes in pots are included at the sides.  I placed the Baroque Gazebo on the top platform and a little rock waterfall by Felix landscaping within it.  As you can see from the welcoming angel, it’s quite a large piece and would be suitable for grand gardens, parks and any public space where you wanted to make an architectural statement.

Here’s what I used:-

These are available at the I ❤ Roleplay Event, which runs until the end of the month.  All beautiful original Mesh with Permissions of Copy/Modify.

King of the North

with 5 comments

Here’s Jon Snow braving the other side of the wall because he’s forgotten to take in sufficient supplies to bolster up the Night’s Watch. By some trick of the light (and maybe destiny in my world) his shadow falls over the land making him King of the North.

Loving the outfit?  It’s April’s Group Gift by Heth Haute Couture and features a massive fur collar and all-in-one costume.  Absolutely love it and as he’s called it “King of the North Ensemble”  I just couldn’t resist the inference. This would suit most avatar and mesh bodies because you really knock those out with an alpha. The only trick is fitting the collar correctly.

If you’re fitting on a system avatar, then use the slide bars in the Torso section to get a good fit on the neckline. Don’t forget to add both the alphas included in the outfit, one is for the body and one for the system hands. When you’re satisfied with the fit, rename and save your shape. Keep it in the outfit folder and then you won’t have to mess about again.

The April free gift from Heth Haute Couture is the “King of the North Brooch”. I removed the fur cape to better show you. It’s gold with red rubies and rather magnificent. It will show up  under the fur cape but not as clearly as you see here.

Pick up your copy of the “King of the North” Ensemble and Brooch from these outlets:

The skin I’m wearing is from 7 Deadly s{K}ins  and it’s the Men’s Group Gift. “Bo” contains:-

OMEGA face applier – Caramel, Clay, Steam, Stone, Taupe

OMEGA body applier – smooth Caramel, Steam, Taupe, Clay, Stone

I chose the Caramel shade and put it on CATWA Bento Daniel Head (my own shape) using the OMEGA relay. This is a mature adult looking skin and goes very well with a number of outfits. There’s a shadow of a beard on it which is flattering and more realistic, I think. Very nice skin anyway, and if you belong to 7 Deadly s{K}ins  group, you’ll find many other great deals as well as hunts and generous gifts. There’s an Easter Egg hunt on at the moment which is for group members only. More about that in another post.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

 

 

 

 

Dinosaurus!

with 2 comments

 

I love a good Dinosaur movie, there aren’t many I haven’t seen.  My favourite story in this genre is Jules Verne’s “The Lost World” which is so exciting and well written.  Although penned in 1874, it is still an excellent read and I believe you can get it for nowt on Kindle as a classic.  There were some friendly dinosaurs in the novel, or at least they didn’t attack the hapless humans too often! And I think they were plesiosaurs, the chaps that are still supposed to be there in the waters of Loch Ness, Scotland.

All these recollections were brought on by [VM] Vero Modero‘s hunt gift this month, and it’s the “Dino Hoodie”.  The ITBH Hunt is on until March 29th so if you hurry, you’ll manage to get your copy.  The Hint is… surrounded by skulls.. the object is a Blue Butterfly dollabie.  Now the Dino Hoodie has five sizes, XS through to XL and I was wearing the L size. It’s in the men’s department, just follow the floor map at the landing point. It’s not difficult to find 🙂

Here’s what I was wearing: –

**RE** Ewan Necklace – Male

[VM] VERO MODERO – Dino Hoodie Size L (in sizes XS – XL with alpha)

ADAM Mesh Body v.1.4b and ADAM boxer v1.2 underwear
CATWA Bento Daniel Bento Mesh Head
7 Deadly s{K}insOMEGA Head Applier ACE V2 HB Caramel and OMEGA Body Applier – Smooth Caramel and don’t forget that March’s Group Gift is a 400L$ store voucher

Ragner’s Day Off

with 11 comments

*~*~*

I’m imagining Ragner the Viking on a day off. He’s gone on holiday to the Mediterranean and ransacked… errr rented a nice villa, to relax and keep out of trouble. *Laughs* alright, holidays in the Med were not invented back then but you know darn well that it’s all virtual fantasy, and I wanted to showcase a couple of things today.

Firstly, TLC Home Collection‘s “Humming Birds Bush”.  This is an exclusive at the current round of Cosmopolitan. I absolutely love it – not only do you get the hibiscus bush in its planter but also 3 humming birds that fly around sampling the flowers. This is Copy/Modify so you can unlink the birds… they do still flap their wings but they will stay in one place wherever you put them as the scripts have been destroyed when you unlinked.  Click on the planter and the flowers change colour in various warm colours. The planter is white to begin with, I modified it to go with the patio.

The house is by Nomad, and it’s in the March Deco(c)rate Home & Garden subscription box. You can still get this edition but it’s now twice the price at 3k lindens.  It’s a great house with striking colours and a turret at the back.  Lots of doors that will stay open for various photography shots and then close on touch. This is very useful!

*~*~*

Secondly, I’m wearing appliers by 7 Deadly s{K}ins. With the group gift this month, you have 400L to go and spend at the store. This is enough to buy one of the many applier sets, I was using “Fier” face applier in Caramel with beard V2 HB. The artistry on this is really nice and unique, the beard and the hairbase join up in a natural manner and it suited the hair I chose so well.  For the body applier, I chose Caramel Smooth this time and Ragner must have borrowed his wife’s shaver as there’s no body hair, he’s just smooth!  I wouldn’t like to say if she’ll be pleased or not. Both these appliers are OMEGA so I can use them with my CATWA Daniel Bento face and ADAM Mesh Body. It does take a while fiddling with everything but if you persevere you can get some wonderful looks.

The bench  is the “Park Bench Rainbow” by Chez Moi Furnitures, and this should be back at the mainstore by now, having been out at an Event. It’s texture change for some very pleasant pastel shades and has PG and Adult versions with lots of lovely animations and interactive stuff, such as Chez Moi is famous for.

Viking Legend

with 8 comments

ragner-lothbrok-7ds-odin

 

Ragnar Lodbrok was a legendary Viking leader and hero of old Norse poetry and sagas from the Viking age.  According to this traditional literature, Ragnar distinguished himself by many raids against France and Anglo Saxon England during the 9th century.  When I saw this new release from 7 Deadly s{K}ins called ODIN, I was put in mind of Ragnar from the television series Vikings which is based on the Ragnar of old.

To get this look, you’ll need a Bento head and a mesh body that will take Omega HUDs. The 7 Deadly s{K}ins “Odin” pack contains 20 Omega Mesh Head appliers (based on the Bento CATWA Daniel head) in 5 skin tones – Taupe/Caramel/Clay/Steam (used in the pictures)/Stone and 2 facial hair options. There is also a Bento Shape which is Copy/Modify included.  The Shape is also available separately, check out the Second Floor of the guy’s dept and you’ll find it there.

I used the Adam Mesh Body with this Shape and the 7 Deadly s{K}ins Steam tone Omega applier for same.

It’s an easy matter to change the hair base using the CATWA HUD so as to get a nice blond colour, the hair is from EMO-tions Bradley which matches up perfectly. Add pants and boots from The Forge and a fur coat from !gO! and you’ve got Ragnar!

Here he is in close-up. I really think designer, Izara, has made an excellent job of both the shape and the skin. The nose is really elegant and the eyes are well spaced.

Conversation with the Kingfisher

with 8 comments

7ds-jager-earth-tone

 

There is an absolutely charming legend about the kingfisher. It was said that they built a floating nest and wherever the nest would drift according to the wind and river movements, the surrounding water would remain calm. Even if a nest floated out to sea, then the area would be calmed. Thus, the kingfisher would be a sacred bird to the ancient mariners. It was also said that the nest would be made of fish bones. In reality, kingfishers consume large quantities of fish, aquatic insects and freshwater shrimp. They regurgitate the indigestible portions and the nest can become strewn with bones, so this may have contributed to the legend. Their eggs are a beautiful deep pinkish hue, and usually they lay 6 in number. Male and female kingfishers create their nests by excavating a burrow in a shallow river, stream or lake bank, usually just below the top of the bank.

This little post is really to illustrate 7 Deadly s{K}ins January group gift for us gents, the “Jager” set. It’s a very generous set by designer, Izara.  Here’s what we get:-

24 Omega head appliers (with/without hairbase & clean plus light beard versions), which were fitted on the GA.EG Damon Bento mesh head originally, although here I used CATWA Paul. Tones are caramel, cotton, steam, earth, taupe and stone. I chose the earth tone, clean for my pictures.

6 system skins plus SLINK hands/feet appliers and Omega body appliers, I chose the matching smooth earth tone.

2 bonus shapes – shape for bento head on SLINK body, shape for  bento head on system body plus system head shape for comparison.

There is an add-on pack instore for 250L, viewing recommended.
