Owlery

leave a comment »

 

The Owlery was a room on the top of Hogwarts Castle’s West Tower, where the school owls and the owls belonging to students lived during the school year. The Owlery was a circular stone room, rather cold and drafty, because none of the windows had glass in them. The lack of glass in the windows allowed the owls to come and go freely. The floor was entirely covered in straw, owl droppings and the regurgitated skeletons of mice and voles. Many owls nestled here on perches that rose right up to the top of the tower. During the winter months, the room was very cold, to the point that one had to be careful with ice on the higher landings.

Our Second Life® virtual Owlery is much more civilised and comes complete with stained glass windows. The owls get in through the round window and have a nice, warm set of rooms all to themselves 🙂

Here’s full details of the Home & Garden products and avatar accessories I used in the scene today:-

Sponsors:- Syndicate Sunday, Juna tattoos, Dragon Magick Wares
Others:- *HEXtraordinary*, MINIMAL, C L A Vv.
Events: – Syndicate Sunday, The Saturday Sale

*NB – all products have Permissions of Copy & Modify unless stated otherwise!

Syndicate Sunday – Feb 3rd – 10th – all items only L$69

1 . Juna
Although the offer is primarily for ladies, this great Symo tattoo goes very well on a slim, male body too! I used the Jake MESH body with the Omega applier option which worked perfectly so I’d say this was unisex. I would imagine that a larger male body with more defined musculature may distort the tats somewhat but it’s so cheap as this special offer – why not just try it out?
In the pack you’ll find dark, light and medium system layers as well as the Multiple HUD. This contains the applier for mesh Body in 3 tone (Dark 100%, Medium 75% and Light 50%) for:
• Altamura
• Belleza
• Eve
• Maitreya
• Omega
• Signature
There’s also a Juna: TMP Symo tattoo Woman option included.

 

2. Dragon Magick Wares
This is a daft price to pay for a lovely RP build – what’s there to think about?
Dragon Magick Wares Luna Cottage – LI 130 – Copy and Modify, you can enlarge this cottage only. It’s a beautiful building with Magick and RP aspects. There’s 4 rooms inside and they are light, airy and decorated with stained glass windows. Click doors open and close. The front door has an additional wrought iron decoration and door knocker. The footprint is 14 by 11 metres and the height is 0.45 metres. Here’s a picture to show the roof décor.

Ophelia’s Dining Table

with 2 comments

 

Ophelia: – “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance. Pray you, love,
remember. And there is pansies, that’s for thoughts.
There’s fennel for you, and columbines. There’s rue for you,
and here’s some for me. We may call it herb of grace o’ Sundays.
O, you must wear your rue with a difference! There’s a daisy. I
would give you some violets, but they wither’d all when my father
died. They say he made a good end.”
Hamlet – Act IV, Scene 5 – Will Shakespeare

Ophelia is going slightly mad here and she hands out flowers to various characters. It’s said that she’s suffering from the “poison of deep grief” brought on by her father’s death and is divided from herself and her sanity (her fair judgement). But that’s not her only problem. Shakespeare hints through the symbolic meaning of flowers that she’s been betrayed through adultery and may even be pregnant. In the end nobody is quite sure if her death is accidental or suicidal.

This is the last of my posts for Halloween on a Shakespearean theme and I hope you’ve enjoyed them.  I wanted to do something a bit different from the usual blood and gore and fortunately there were some truly wonderful products about by very talented designers to enable me to do so.
