My Love Affair with Aisling and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival

Previously posted by portiapexington at Mask and Mien.

My love for Aisling is strong. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I remember my first trip to the store in 2013 and, believe it or not, I wasn’t looking for beautiful accessories, but furniture. I was enchanted by the little blurbs of text behind each of the furniture sets and I was astounded by the quality of mesh and textures and *gasp* the fact that everything was unbelievably low land impact. A few years ago, when mesh was new, Aisling was putting out gorgeous decor items that were 1Li each and customizable furniture that came in under 5Li, modifiable and linkable to shave those prim counts even lower.

Meave 2

It’s not accurate to say that Aisling has undergone a massive improvement in the years that I’ve been a fan. The work of Damian Kleiner and Druunah Esharham has always been stellar, always such high quality with the sort of attention to detail that is so rare, so perfect. If anything, I’d say that they’ve continued along the trajectory set forth all those years ago, becoming more of what they’ve always been by doing what they do best. Better than most.

I really, truly hope this isn’t taken as an ass-kissing post. It isn’t meant to be. It’s more of a love letter, a gentle nudge for people who aren’t as familiar with the brand to explore the options at Aisling. As a role player, I encountered them early and visited them often. As a model and modern blogger, it would have taken much longer to find them in the first place.

This is why events like We❤ Role Play and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, like The Secret Affair, The Fantasy Collective, and The Fantasy Faire are so vital to our Second Life experience. Yes, I’ll be one of the first to say that the number of shopping events in Second Life is high – too high sometimes – but remember that, without them, it would be that much harder to find all the talented designers and creators we’ve come to know and love.

I don’t believe in limiting myself to one genre or another. I don’t like the idea of ONLY wearing modern clothing or medieval clothing or science fiction clothing and I don’t feel that it’s fair to expect our favourite designers to limit themselves either. Inspiration takes so many forms and when it happens, the results can be absolutely magical.

The Fantasy Collective : May Edition

Previously posted by at SL: LORI NOVO.

Featuring
!gO!
“Before you came,
things were as they should be:
the sky was the dead-end of sight,
the road was just a road, wine merely wine.

Now everything is like my heart,
a color at the edge of blood:
the grey of your absence, the color of poison, of thorns,
the gold when we meet, the season ablaze,
the yellow of autumn, the red of flowers, of flames,
and the black when you cover the earth
with the coal of dead fires.

And the sky, the road, the glass of wine?
The sky is a shirt wet with tears,
the road a vein about to break,
and the glass of wine a mirror in which
the sky, the road, the world keep changing.

Don’t leave now that you’re here—
Stay. So the world may become like itself again:
so the sky may be the sky,
the road a road,
and the glass of wine not a mirror,  just a glass of wine.”

Bedtimes of Fantasy and Reality

Previously posted by at Rudh’s Random Ramblings.

SecondLife is a world of fantasies… Some are admittedly more realistic than others, but even creating a 2.4 lifestyle with the partner of your dreams in the virtual world is considered as living a fantasy to many people outside of SL. Even my SL is a fantasy of being a curvacious barbie doll, that is secretary of a Biker MC.
Yet even in my SL there are fantasies and realities LOL… Seems strange to admit that but let me elaborate with the help of some new poses from Come Soon
The Fantasy looks something a little like this…

The seductive side of me would love to live out some fantasies of luring unsuspecting men into her bedroom… It may have happened once upon a time, before I met HellBone, but now days I am a good girl – flirting aside – still, that fantasy lingers and I am allowed to dress up occasionally and at least hint at it hehe… The pose – Come Soon‘s “Waiting for” Pose, which is available at the new round of Suicide Dollz – and the gorgeous Renee Lingerie that is available from BE Designs.
Yet the Reality of things would be more like this…

Wearing something a little more comfortable and heading to bed alone with her teddy bear… Her comfortable, yet still cute underwear is a set from The Untitled called Sexyness… It’s the kind of underwear that would still be OK to be caught wearing, but it’s more comfortable than seduction undies!
The pose used for the reality shot is another Come Soon Pose, this time called “Tomorrow” and this one is actually a cute couple pose with a male pose sprawled out over the bed. I love the fact that the female aspect of this pose works with or without male participation – pretty much like the fantasy scenarios too LOL…
Perhaps it’s time to start living the dream – or the fantasies?! Though not entirely sure if Hell would be too happy with that LOL…

What is she wearing;
Fantasy:
Hair: Truth – May (Available until May 31st at Enchantment)
Skin: Glam Affair – Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: [White Widow] – Gravity in Black (Available until May 31st at We <3 RP)
Lingerie: BE Designs – Renee in Black
Pose: Come Soon – Waiting For (Available until June 3rd at Suicide Dollz)
Reality:
Hair: Magika – Checkpoint in Hud 02
Skin: Glam Affair – Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: [White Widow] – Gravity in Black (Available until May 31st at We <3 RP)
Underwear: The Untitled – Sexyness in Red & White
Bear: <:*BoOgErS*:> – Snooze Bear
Pose: Come Soon – Tomorrow (Available until June 2nd at Pose Lover)

Sometimes I do enjoy the feel of masculine touch on my decor. Especially if I am working with something very close to nature like wood, natural timber, dark colors, earth stone, rusty metal etc. And this what bring the mood to this room.
