It’s not much of a life you are living – News from The Forge, Lassitude & Ennui and more!! :)

Heya peeps,

The Fantasy Collective has started and we got a lot of positive Feedback. Several of the items featured by ‘our’ designers offer are featured in this post. Weather is getting really cold over here so I thought a snowy setting might be fitting again. 🙂

The armor!

Well, guess what? Deccan Arida released another armor for The Forge. Dun, dun, dun. I have seen a couple of previews and I was rather positive that this armor would turn out reall neat once again. First of all straps. It has straps and has an excuse to stay on my arms. Yay. I like the coloration of this armor, which is available at The Fantasy Collective. The shape is really welldone, it fits perfectly around arms and shoulders without having to twist and tweak like crazy. Deccan is really good with textures, though personally I believe the Daerwen Armor had textures that were a little prettier. The celtic (?) symbols are a neat idea but appear a little random to me. I love the spikes though, despite generally not being a huge fan of spikes at all. These however don’t look so very overdone. The edge around the armor is a very cool detail. However, to be fair, I think his Daerwen Armor will remain my fav for now, simply because it was so insanely detailed. This armor is done really, really well, too, but for me personally, it lacks a wee bit of that ‘girly’ feeling. However, I am damn sure this sells like warm bread anyways, especially to dudes. 🙂


The boots!

Jackal Ennui released these new, rigged boots for Lassitude & Ennui at Shoetopia. Aaaaaaaand my heart jumped a little when I spotted only tiny heels. And no zippers. That’s how you make an elf happy, just add a little suede in pretty colours and offer the item in a high quality and I’ll make funny happy noises. Fact is, Jackal offers these boots in various colours which range from more earthen colours to really strong tones. The mesh is original and welldone and I really like the flap on top which gives the shoe kind of a pirate-y look.  The suede looks soft and warm, so it is perfect for winter. My only problem was finding pants that fit into these: The calf gets very tight towards the ankle and finding pants turned into a chore for me. The pants displayed stick through a tiny bit, too. This is exactly the reason why I’d probably wet myself due to happiness if designers actually chose to offer to versiosn for their pants: one for whatever kind of shoes, and one for boots. So, it is less a problem oof the boots but rather of finding pants that don’t have a ton of wrinkles that stick through every damn boot out there. Talk about wrinkles: Love them on these boots, they look really natural. Definitely a must have for me. 🙂 And they come in a male version too!
