The Nile Calls To Me

A few weeks ago, my beloved Gabriella informed me that she would be working on a secret project with my best friend.  This of course made me wonder at what the two cheries were up to!  But I had very explicit orders that I was not to be below 1000ft. on our sim.  For a couple of days they worked together on this secret project.  I of course kept my word and didn’t peek though did tease often that I was going down to the secret area.

They enjoyed teasing me and knew it was driving me crazy to know what they were doing.  Impish women, chattering in my ear and giggling while dangling little hints to me, but I did not peak! And I am so glad that I didn’t, for when they finally finished, they teleported me to the secret area and I was speechless.  There before my eyes, they had created Egypt!  Now, a little back story so that you understand why this is so important to me.

As an avid roleplayer, I have many personas, but Chance is the ‘me’ in all of those creations.  Though I have not roleplayed in a very long time, I do have a roleplay back-story, the most prominent is that in character I am an Archaeologist.  An Egyptologist to be exact. I had talked to Gabriella and my best friend Lupa about doing a big roleplay with them, taking us to Egypt on an excavation.  We figured we could go to a few sims that had a desert theme, but finding an actual archaeological dig site was a whole other story.  That is when Gabriella secretly asked my best friend to help her create one.

For the past few weeks since they completed the areas on our sim, we have been embarking on a grand expedition from Cairo city to the East, in search of ancient tombs and a secret city buried beneath the sands of time.  Over the next few blog posts, with the exception of a few styles or events, I will be featuring images from our roleplay to share with you.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we have finding the many wonderful creations in SecondLife to bring our roleplay to even more life.

And yes, that is my FALT in white. :)

Seasons Gatcha!

The Seasons Hunt was by far my utmost favorite hunt in Second Life.  I remember discovering it when I was a new resident and how much it opened up my eyes to amazing shops that I still frequent today.  The main one is Fir & Mna, a find I will cherish always for it’s definitely my style.   When the Seasons Hunt came to an end, I know I was really bummed!  So when the little birdies came out of their hiding places in the snow covered trees and whispered of something amazing to come, my ears perked and my shopaholic heart pitter-pattered.

The Seasons Gatcha Event: WINTER

Each season, we will be given a gatcha event!  I love gatchas, they are like gambling for shoppers and I so love to gamble.  You never know what you gonna get, and that is part of the fun!  I really love when a rare item makes my eyes go all dreamy and my palms itch to own it.  I hit the gatcha vendor over and over until I get it, and a few times I get really lucky and get them on first go.

I dragged Mrs. Raynier around the beautifully decorated gatcha area located on the My Pants sim and we had a blast.  We spent obscene money but every penny was well worth it.  I put together some of my great finds and lounged around on my new bed from the event, waiting for Mrs. Raynier to get home.  I’m hoping she’ll want to see whats beneath the hat! *wink wink*

You can find out more and see photos of the gatcha items at SeraphimSL who as always do an amazing job of covering our great events in Second Life.  Head on over, you’ll be glad you did!

Nature Boy

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day

One magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return”

Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Le plaisir, qui est bien en effet l’unique mobile de la réunion des deux sexes, ne suffit pourtant pas pour former une liaison entre eux…, s’il est précédé du désir qui rapproche, il n’est pas moins suivi du dégoût qui repousse. C’est une loi de la nature, que l’amour seul peut changer.

…pleasure, which is undeniably the sole motive force behind the union of the sexes, is nevertheless not enough to form a bond between them…even if it is preceded by desire which impels, it is succeeded by disgust which repels. This is a law of nature which only love can change.

-Les Liaisons Dangereuses-Choderlos De Laclos

My beautiful models for this series are Sefina, a she-wolf, Lycan born she has danced ballet since able to walk.  It is her passion, one that soothes the wolf within, until the moon rises and more dominant dark desires arise within her.

Viktor is a young vampire, saved from death into a deadly re-birth, he has a penchant for piercings and danger.  When the need to sate his bloodlust, his desires run intense and the chase of the primal drums of a heartbeat become his melody to follow.

The two together are deadly beautiful and proof that a predator can live beneath even the most exquisite of forms.

What It Feels Like For A Girl

Have you ever wondered what the opposite sex has to deal with in Second Life?  Have you perused stores that ONLY create womens clothing/accessories and wished down to your pixel heart that they made clothing for both genders?  I certainly have!  This is what spurred project FALT (female alt).  Let’s call her Cherie.

I took Cherie around to all my favorite shops that I take my beloved Gabriella shopping at.  I also found a few that I had never been to, so it was a win/win as I got to add more shopping spree spots to the list.

A few things that I discovered on my FALT journey:

  • Male AVs will hit on you for no apparent reason and usually with a silly ‘hi’ or really bad ‘how you doooin?’ pick up line.
  • Female AVs dragging their male AV friends/partners must scare them to pieces especially when shopping for shoes because every male I encountered at shoe shops had massive weapons on!  Shoe shopping IS war!
  • Many female designers make their prim parts no mod! How can you adjust the sleeves and collars to fit your AV if its no mod? That was very frustrating.
  • A purse is not a clutch and a clutch is not a purse…I still do not understand!
  • Some skirts really require a belt with them if you do not wear a baggy type top with them.  I made a sad face at this.
  • There are not enough stocking makers in Second Life (yes I have a thing for stockings!)
  • Matching your skin to heels is a pain in the ass!
  • Prim lashes are the devil! I like the tattoo layer much better.
  • Skirt prims are the devil also! Adjusting them to be specific. Grumble!
  • Female skins have a ton more options than male skins! Cleavage, make up, pubic hair or non. NON!
  • Redheads can wear red if their hair is blood red, which is the sexiest shade of red in my eyes.
  • Truth hair is Godly!  And um addictive…I now have like 5 different styles.  That is not that different from mens hair though and I am a hair addict.

And now, what I came up with for this installment of FALT.  Next up a more relaxed look.
