Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen!

Featuring [InsurreKtion] and *SK*

Sometimes ideas just come together so well.  I have been wanting to blog this vintage carnival gacha set by [InsurreKtion] for a while now and was just getting caught up on current events.  Just as I was getting some open time, *SK* released this Valentina outfit for Tres Chic and it had this vintage, androgynous feel to it and I knew it would be perfect for this photo.  She totally looks the part of a carnival barker!

It also reminds me of one of my favorite seasons of American Horror Story.  I loved everthing about AHS – Freak Show but Twisty the Clown is NOT allowed at my carnival.  I will have to turn the lion loose on him if he shows up.  I highly recommend it and it is currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Step right up and enjoy the show!

Rural Delivery

Featuring Sway’s

Let me just say how much fun I have had blogging these past 8 months!  So far I haven’t hit any roadblocks or lack of ideas and that is in part due to my sponsors.  I love when I get an idea instantly upon seeing items as I am unpacking them and the latest release from Sway’s did exactly that.

Featured here are items from the Mail For You gacha set that is available now at The Gacha Garden.  As soon as I saw the key photo I got my idea….it was that quick.

Up until I was about 10 we lived in the city, on a cute little city block where our mail was delivered to a cute little mailbox that hung right next to the front door.  Then we moved to the “boonies” which wasn’t really the boondocks but after living in the city it sure seemed like it.  It was certainly rural though.  People lived on acres, not lots and there were farms and horses and orchards…a complete change of scenery for sure. Where I had usually walked to school, I now had to take a bus and where we had been able to open the door and get the mail without even stepping off the porch, we now had to not only go outside but also cross the street to get to the mailbox.  It was totally normal to see clusters of mailboxes side by side.

That is still the place I think of as home, the place my mother still lives 40+ years later and I still smile now whenever I drive past little clusters of mailboxes.  Have a great weekend everyone!

DayZ

dayz

Featuring [Krescendo]

My husband and I recently started playing DayZ.  For those not familiar with DayZ, here is the description from Steam:

The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?

I have a love/hate relationship with this game.  I love playing it but it scares the crap out of me at the same time.  We play on our own server so at least I don’t have to worry about other players trying to kill me…just the zombies.  I figure its good practice for when the real zombies show up! *wink wink*

[Krescendo] has created a nearly perfect mode of transport for the occasion.  The Apoxwagon is coming soon to the Eclipse event which starts on the 13th.  It comes in Adult and PG versions and includes a hud allowing you to choose from 7 colors.  Get yours and be ready to survive the infected!

Grimm Enchantment

Grimm Enchantment

I must admit, I am super excited for the upcoming round of Enchantment, which starts November 10th.  The theme is the Brothers Grimm and I can’t wait to see what all the creators have come up with.  I collect vintage childrens books and have several that are collections of fairy tales.  The Grimms Fairy Tales have given us the well known classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel and some of the more obscure but delightful, like The Goose Girl, Snow White and Rose Red and The Bremen Town Musicians.  The dress I am wearing, Sabrina, is by *SK* and will be available at the event and the cane is included.  Don’t miss Enchantment…It’s sure to be…Enchanting.

Guardians of the Gate

Guardians of the Gate.jpg

Ok..I have to share!  There is a very funny story that goes along with this photo.  First of all, its the latest creation from TLC and it is available at a brand new event called Baroqued Gothical.  Now when I received the blogger notice, there was a small note included that the creators were leaving their comfort zone and hoped that we wouldn’t throw tomatoes at them.  In case you don’t know, TLC does amazing work, generally animals of all sorts, birds & feeders, fish, ponds…you get the idea.  So I unpack the box, rez the item and its this beautiful stone gate and I thought why would we throw tomatoes, its beautiful.  So I proceed with my setup and had it just about done but thought it was missing something.  I decided it needed another section of gate so I went back to the folder to rez another one.  Well, image my surprise when I see something in the folder that I missed the first time…tadaaaaa, The Dragon!  Well that clearly explained the tomato comment and required a completely new photo idea.  I do love the end result and would like to say to True and Lautlos, It’s ok…it took me out of my comfort zone too…but I think we both pulled it off.  Baroqued Gothical is open now and will close at 7:59 AM SLT on November 25th.

City Highrise

City Highrise(1)

I love decorating and there is never a shortage of supplies in Second Life.  Great things come out almost every other day.  I never get tired of arranging, rearranging and then re-rearranging a scene!  Its part of the fun.  For this picture I used a mix of new and old releases and would be content to curl up on that sofa, turn on the record player and enjoy the view.  The sofa and shelf unit are the newest releases by NEWCHURCH.  The sofa is part of the Flix & Chill set currently at the Red Light District and it is loaded with options.  You can change the color of the sofa, the cushions and even resize it to fit your avatar to perfection.  The set includes a rug, coffee table, tv, remote control, popcorn and more (not shown here)…everything you need to enjoy a weekend binge session of Netflix.  The Bonny Console includes all the decor items shown on its shelves and is available at Cosmopolitan.  It is modify so you can change the color of the wood to suit your needs.  Be sure check them, take them home and enjoy your own view!

Cave of Wonders

Searching for The Cave of Wonders

I am so excited for the coming live action version of Disney’s Alladin.  They released just a teaser of a trailer but it looks so good.  You can watch the teaser here.  Will Smith will be playing the Genie and I love him but he has very large shoes to fill.  (Robin Williams voiced the Genie in the animated version.)  The scheduled opening date is May 24th, 2019 so I have a while to continue to be excited.  The poor soul in my photo was definitely not “the diamond in the rough” but I am sure the vultures were happy for the meal.  The vultures are from TLC and are currently at the Salem event but as you can see they are certainly not limited to just Halloween use.  They would go perfectly in any desert or mountain setting.  Be sure you go take a look at all the tricks, treats and other spookish delights at Salem before it ends on October 31st!

Date Night

Date Night

So this may not be what you were expecting by the title but if you are a busy parent, caregiver or have been with your significant other for quite some time, this may be your idea of a perfect date night.  I love my alone time when I am free to do whatever I want, when I want and how I want.  Sometimes that is sitting in a swing and reading and sometimes its curled up in bed with popcorn and a good scary movie.

This beautiful lily pond by Krescendo is a perfect addition to any outdoor space. It has seating for singles, cuddles for couples and includes a hud with options to change textures of all parts; the wood, water, duckweed and the lily pads.  The Lily Pond can be found at the current round of Cosmopolitan.
