They turned to dust all that I adore – News from Stitched and Five and Twenty

Heya peeps!

My homestead is slowly coming along and I am starting to wonder why so many people complain about there being too few prims. Well, sure, if you want to build an entire city around the whole sim…that’s not gonna work out. But with forests, a harbor, a campa dn a village, I am still doing pretty well. Thought the decorating part still scares me! ;D Friends are very welcome to visit anytime!! Just shoot me an IM.

The boots!

My friend Adele Bumblefoot of Stitched is stuck in a total designing flow. Today, she dropped two folders with boots on me. I already liked her first attempt at boots though those had a bit of a bland feel to them still. However, these ones are really, really detailed and nice. They come in several colors of which I am displaying the brown tone. I love, love and love those straps with the buttons on them and the nice leathery feel the texture displays. Very unique details! Also, the wrinkles on the calf are really well done and give them a used and worn look. These are handmade mesh, too! However, I am still not 100% happy about the footshape. Imho, the tip is a wee bit too sharp, the look of it doesn’t make much sense when you consider the whole shape of the boot. I am not sure, but sharp tips on boots, isn’t that cowbow style? :D But, it is really a minor thing. The foot itself is already a big improvement compared to her older boots as it is much less flat. I think for future version of these a worn, scratched leathertexture would be really awesome.


The corset!

Searlait Nitschke of Roawenwood (and 5&20) is usually known for furniture. Many forget that she offers clothes as well. This corset, which was sent to me by a friend, is really to my liking. I enjoy the tough look it has and I muchly enjoy those straps that go over my shoulder. It gives it a realistic feel. Now I can explain how it stays where it should stay while my elf is fighting! :P The texture and choice of colours is welldone, even if the leather looks a wee bit too clean for my taste. However, I will probably combine this with a lot of outfits.It looks like ideal riding/hunting gear for any kind of female badass character. I do believe (!) this piece is a template, but I may be wrong. Even if so, I enjoy it’s look greatly. It also comes with a nice pouch and unlike soooo many other corsets, this one is asymmetrical which is hard to mix and match, but once you’ve managed it, it looks fantastic. It also has nice lacings on the back! The only thing that does not appeal AS much to me are the…what are they called…uhh…latchings?..on front of it. Maybe working with a texture that supports the tiny details would have helped here. However, all in all, I really like this piece!

She’s got the Look! – News from Aisling, La Petite Morte and more! :D

Heya peeps!

I wanted to say thank you to those who stuck up for me yesterday. :) Also, all I will say in regards to a certain…uhhh…thing that happened: If I do not link an item/event/creator/whatever you can be more than sure I have valid reasons (Unless it is my current skin. That’s pure snobbish vanity). To achieve that, one has to do a little more than call me names and toss a bit of a hissy fit on Plurk.

Also, I noticed that she’s looking a bit as if she’s holding her breath on the first pic. LOL

The headpiece!

Druunah Esharham of Aisling is someone who applied a good while ago for We LOVE RP. Back then, she had about 3 items in her store and handed them over for me to review them. I was amazed! Yet, this woman manages STILL to become better and better at what she’s doing. This headpiece is marvellous. I really think it is a little masterpiece of hers so far. The unique style, the amount of effort and details put into this items simply baffle me. Her furniture is already incredibly well done, but I do hope she will start doing some more accessories on a regular basis. :D Hint, hint! Honestly there is not much more to say because quite simply, I cannot find anything to point out that isn’t done right with this one. :)


The corset!

I really like this corset by La Petite Morte by Voshie Paine. She’s participating in an event called A Clockwork Spiral which is organized by Bronxelf, who’s known for her amazingly well organized events such as the Goth Fair. I love the combinations of colours on this one as well as the textures. :) There are also very pretty lacings on the back of the corset (green) that look very realistic. My only problem is that due the actual shape of the mesh, this corset is HARD to fit with any other items. It took me forever to find something that worked and that I liked. O rmaybe I just ahve the wrong things in my inventory! :D You really should check out this store in general, she sells a to of unique skins, too. :)

PREVIEW: The Forge – Daerwen Armor

Hello peeps!

So, ever since The Forge’s creator Deccan Arida announced is intention to possibly create armor for women…I have been bugging him and bugging him and…yes…bugging him. All the time. So he finally started after I literally flooded him with pictures for reference of what I was imaginign when talking about “Not so bulky female armor”. Poor guy, I really felt bad for him at times. :P

But! He caved in and came up with this amazing armor. First, I got the belt as a preview, which is so damned perfectly fitted and so easily to resize that I was speechless. Then, he showed me a preview of his boots and I tell you, I LOVE these. He kept consulting me over patterns on the platepieces and other stuff and geeze. I am truly baffled at the outcome. Imho, this is the proof that you do NOT need to go to shit stores such as Lost Gem, Von Strauss or Erebos to get awesome stuff in SL, giving thieves your money while getting items in return that are badly rigged and have more glitches than you can think of. I am sure he will be coming up with something equally awesome for the guys soon enough as well. ;)

So far, this armor and Innocuous’ armor (available at We <3 RP) are my absolute favs for gals.

THANK YOU, Deccan, this was desperately needed for the girls. We have a billion of dresses/skirts and silks to pick from, but wellmade armors are a rarity.

Have a look here:


So, why do I love this armor?

First of all, it comes in three different colours: Bronze (brown), silver and as an addition, black armor pieces which can be bougth separately. I wear all three colour sint he pics: Pants/bracers are from the silve routfit, boots are black, rest is bronze.The textures are AWESOME imho and really give the outfit a 3D appearance. The boots are perfectly fitted to the female leg and you can resize them as well. Look at those intricately worked mesh armor pieces? The textures and patterns are SO pretty! They look really, really fitting for an ykind of medieval setting imho.

Talk about resizing:

ALL armorpieces besides the pants and the top are easily (!!) resizeable. Nothing is more ugly imho that armor that stretches and twists as if it was made out of fabric (hi @ crappy armor from Erebos!). The belt is so damn well fitted to the female hips! The pants make an -awesome- ass and do NOT have the invisible ponyrider look! Also, created to fit into boots!I LOVE them! The top is so detailed, too, and look very rustic and natural. Every rigged part comes in the five standard sizes, too!

And now the HUGE THING that I LOVE: Each part of the outfit can be mixed and matched! Everything comes separately, even the alphas! YAY!

It’s strange what desire makes foolish people do

Hey peeps!

We ROUND 2 is starting soon! :-D Stay tuned for the awesome stuff to be had there. I am in LOVE with one item already:

Innocuous will be presenting this awesome, freaking nice armor at the event. Finally some decent armor for girls that doesn’t look bulky like hell and makes you look like a sad version of Conan. :D I am in love with it. It comes with shoulders, too, which I will show in a different post. The texture is really nicely done and it is MESH! But only the shoulders come in a rigged and a non-rigged version. The whole armor is modifyable, which is awesome for fitting. Imho, rigged armor always looks a little odd. Why would gauntlets move and bend with your arm? O.o

There will also be a dirty, rugged version of this armor available as well as a dark red and a black texture. :) I very much like this and will kiss Circuitous’ feet for a while now I think. :P Honestly I even believe it fits a guy as well, since among our penis-type people there are a few rogue-ish, leather-wearing characters as well. :P’ll come in a separate version for the guys! :D

There’s not a soul to hear – Fantasy Faire Part V

Heya peeps!

Today something for the guys. :) The following pictures have been taken at Kaelus, a gorean role-play sim. ELves are NOT allowed. I got special permission to take a blogpicture, but usually, that is a big NO NO. ;)

Hair: Wasabi Pills (MissAllSunday Lemon, NEW!!, Mesh!! @ Fantasy Faire –> Magnificat Sim)

The FATEWeaR Outfit comes in two versions: WIth or without a cloak, an din the usual 5 standardsizes. However, it comes as a whole outfit, all in one piece: BOots, gauntlets, tunic, pants. The outfit is AWESOME, but I like to mix and match, and so I cheated:

I selected the item IN my inventory, clicked on edit, then selected the face on my outfit I wanted to texture and dragged an alphalayer on it. This way, I am hiding my pants, boots, cloak and gauntlets. ^^

Pants: The Forge (Deccan Arida, Mesh!! Part of Brandon Outfit)
Boots: Lightstar (Krystal Silverweb)
Armor: The Forge (Deccan Arida, Mesh!! Part of Brandon Outfit)

Dwarfins coming home! – Fantasy Faire Part IV


So, I have a strange fascination for breedables in SL. I used to be totally into KittyCats. I don’t even know why I dropped it, well, duh, I do know! Because I lacked the time to keep track of them all the time. I think in my case it is mainly the theorycrafting that gets me. :D

So, a while ago I stumbled upon something that freaked me out at first: Dwarfins. Breedables dwarves. Breedable humanoids. At first I thought it was creepy, but you know…it is freaking cute. THe little dwarfins are really cute, wellmade. They have certain traits that can be common or rare and depending on how you breed them, those traits get passed on from generation to generation. They got different haircolours and -styles, weapons, clothes, eyecolours etc.

The pricing is very reasonable imho, both for the dwarfins starterpacks as well as the food. They also can interact through interactive items such as a barrel for ale (hahaha :D), or fireplaces and many more. The furniture is REALLY cute. Also, they do not only come as breedables, but as wearable avatars (see second and third pictures!), too. I am the female avi in those pics. Am I not hot? :D

Horny dwarfins!

However, watch out! Them dwarfins are horny! If you do not turn off the breeding option through the menu (via clicking on the dwarfins) and you happen to be offline for a couple of weeks, you will come home to a GIANT family of dwarfins. :P Happened to me, though luckily the baby dwarfins stay in their stone-‘eggs’ until you birth them.

Dwarfins at the Fantasy Faire 2013

Darfins has a big store at the Fantasy Faire 2013, located in the Lumenaria sim. The dwarfins you see displayed here have been made especially for the faire and come in cute little wizards outfits. Even the food, mushrooms in a bowl, is special. :D Dwarfins also offer them as avatars, alongside with an interactive Magic Book and an interactive Andronicus Stone. As a bonus, the newly released Rinn and Rorek Rockbeard dwarfins are available as avatars for those who could not win the breedable versions at the auction. All of these items are really wellmade. :)


In the picture ALL furniture besides the bear rugs, the barrel to the right and the little bowl on the table are made by Anke Hatchuk and her team (Kalia Firelyte and Codereth1200 Nemeth) for Dysfunctional Designs who have a stall at the Fantasy Faire at The DragonSpire Sim. I really love her furniture and deco-items, my entire parcel is stuffed with it! It is handdrawn, original mesh and comes at very reasonable prices, so definitely worth to check it out. They had 14 (!!!) new releases for the faire, which I think speaks of a LOT of effort they put into it.

The bear rugs are made by Tia Biscuit for TIA, another store that I am incredibly fond of. Her textures and meshwork is plain awesome. :) The small bowl and the barrel are items for the dwarfins. :) The shack itself is a meshbuilding made by Nash Sauber for Absent Designs and a new release.


In this picture you see more of Dysfunctional’s new releases at the faire: The dresser and towel-shelf to the right. The bed is made by TIA and the pictureframe comes from a store that is -about- to open: AISLING by Druunah Esharham and her team. Stay tuned for that one! I am amazed by the quality they offer and already had a chance to take a peek at some upcoming items.  On the left you can see more items by Anke’s team and the pillow on the ground is actually a freebie made by them. :)

So, Dysfunctional Designs, TIA and Aisling are definitely three of my favourite creators for rustic furniture in SecondLife. Envisage Limitless would be the fourth, but I#ll wait for her newest release before I blog them! :)

Here a look at Absent Designs’ shack in my parcel, with me as a sexy dwarfin with Elikatira’s hair in front of it:
