STORYLINE: I could feel it, this day was different. Change was coming. My senses strained to detect it. Perhaps the change was not in the wind after all, but in the demeanor of She Who Watches Me in my sleep.

Of course I had to show you guys the Prince Phillip top that is available as an Enchantment stamp prize! Today is the last day for Enchantment, so be sure to scoop of the goodies while you can. I have something else special to show you. You guys know I am crazy for boots by now, right? I love me some tall mesh rigged boots, can't get enough. So I am happy to show you these badass Regency style boots by Kahli Designs, Exalted. They're prefect for horseback riding. The boots are one part of a complete outfit that includes pants that tuck nicely into the boots, a belt you can adjust on the xyz, and a tunic top.

Enchantment: Sleeping Beauty1

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: My name is Princess Aurora. If I have committed a crime against god, man, or nature, I know not what it was. I been locked in a coma, unchanged, since my sixteenth year. In the beginning as I laid helpless and prone, I heard the sobs of my mother, her tears falling upon my hand. The entire village grieved over my wretched fate. Three fairies, who meant well, cast a spell to put everyone to sleep along with me so that they might awake when I somehow escape this hell. But the fairies did not know I was aware in my slumber. I was merely paralyzed. There was nothing left to keep me from going mad. Not even the birds chirped outside. I have now been locked inside this flesh prison for over 100 years. I prey everyday, Merciful God, our father in heaven, please let me die.

Oh I love taking the fairy tales and coming up with a new twist to them. I thought about my verison of Sleeping Beauty all month, I hope you all will enjoy it. How many of you are planning to see the new movie Maleficent this weekend? *raises hand* But right here in SL for only 2 more days you can scoop up excellent creations in the theme of Sleeping Beauty. Pictured above are two wild interpretations of the tale. Anc has created an elegant surrealistic bed that contains single and couples poses. Matching the bed is a creepy surgical lighting structure. The lights will turn on and off, spin, and tilt. To complete the setting, you can pick up the Anc stamp prize of iron balls and thrones. The dress by The Annex comes with a corset, and birdcage skirt with flowers. The Slink high heel shoes by Annex match the dress and come in the garden style or black with thorns. How much do I love this hair by Mina?  A lot! The windblow style is wonderful hair to have for any SL denizen, and can you believe this is a stamp prize? It's also an exclusive to the event. In fact, everything in Enchantment is an exclusive. When June 1st hits, all these items will disappear! The bracelets are a prize by Boom and come in several colors, plus a hud to change the rose color. The Thorns at my Throat collar is the prize by T.arnished.

STORYLINE: I remember the day it happened like a nightmare repeating over and over in my mind. I had discovered an interesting new contraption in an abandoned section of the castle. It had a wheel that spun, a spool of yarn, and a tall needle point. Being always the curious one, I merely wondered if it was sharp and touched it.

Junbug always makes such great historical dresses.  This one is called Sleeping Beauty and you can get it in blue, green, black, or red. The flower vine mask and armbands are wonderful and they are the stamp prize from Lark. The spinning wheel is by Hopscotch and comes with great roleplaying poses for your Beauty. The large and small mirrors are by Unrepentant. They are not just mirrors, they store images and play them back! The hourglass is a stamp prize from OhMai, and Beauty's Vanity desk is the stamp prize from Unrepentant. The desk has poses for doing makeup and will attach makeup tools to you. It also contains couple poses. The garden plots are the stamp prize from The Annex. It has sleeping poses for Beauty as she lays among the flowers.

This round of Enchantment is different from the past versions, instead of central sim to shop you visit each store that is practicing. Look for the Enchantment sign and the stamp booth. Once you have purchased one item, you will see a stamp card inside the folder. Wear it and visit each store in this round. Find the stamp booth and touch it. As you go, your stamp card will be filled. Once you have then all done, head to the prize collect and select one of the prizes there to redeem with your completed stamp card. NOTE: You can wear multiple stamp cards at the same time to fill them all at one, BUT do not wear them all when you collect a prize. Wear only one at a time to collect. Have fun! For more information on how the stamp rally works and prize previews, go to the Enchantment blog. Hurry Hurry, this round ends May 31st!

World Goth Fair: The Spyder Guard

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The leader of the Black Ops in Cursed was none other than Noble Elder Maximilian, the progenitor of the Spyder clan. The Spyders had their threads throughout the city, nothing happened without Maximilian's knowledge. The plain-clothes Spyders hidden in the crowd had taken Elizabeth to the safe place in the sky, the BatHouse of the 101st. While Maximilian personally escorted Scarlet there to meet with her sister. Maximilian was a mystery to most, but Scarlet understood his mind. He was all knowing and powerful but slow to act. She understood he choose his battles wisely. Taking on another ancient, Kaiser Kruel (also known as Horemheb), is nothing to take lightly, but some battles were worth fighting for. The separation of humans and Darks was wrong. Petty differences didn't matter, they were all family. it was time for a conversation, time for two sisters to finally embrace.

Wow I have a lot to cover here. First check out this wonderful retro-80s punk vest by Papermoon. I really love the attention to detail Papermoon does. The vest you can get in several different textures for girls or guys. Then you can pick out back patches for either punk, metal patches, or gothic. On the front buttons you can pick your music genre too. And here's the fun part, the patches and buttons are rigged, that means you can wear these fun button and patches on any outfit you like! Just add buttons to create an instant retro look! The shades by Eclectia I am wearing come with a hud to change to the textures on the frames and lens. I love the options on the lens that include shading up or down and shattered. For my Security look, I included the retro headphones from the Standby gacha, and the group gift armband from Epica (but added my own logo to it). The jeans are by favorites from Ronsem that include a speical closed boot fit version. The belt comes with a hud to change it's colors. The gloves are by O.M.E.N and comes with open and closed attachments. The Iron Cross necklace is another great item in the LNS booth at WGF. It comes with a resizer and bead color changers. While you're at LNS, be sure to pick up the free beautiful masks gift there!

Scarlet is rocking a lot of badass here. She is the leader of the Rebellion afterall, but she still has a tender heart. She's wearing the goregous corset by Couture Rock. I love how this corset fits around the waist and then opens up around the hips. There is a little black lace fringe too. The back has black ribbons. Her necklace is also by Couture Rock and matches perfectly. I didn't show it here, but there is a cameo stocking also at the CR booth that matches the corset, be sure to check that out too. The shoulder armor and finger armor are by Death Row and on sale only a few more days at We <3 Role Play. The Amor and ring also work on the guys. Scarlet's boots are wonderful chained open boot by Death Row availible at Dark Style Fair.  To wear these you need the Slink High foot. To go with it, I used the Gallactic Symbiosis pants with appliers for Slink feet. It comes with appliers for the hands too. I love this texture! So alien and organic like. The armwarmers are a return to Scarlets outfit from last year by Inkubus by SAKIDE. The 2nd fingerclaw is from LNS and you pick it up in several different colors. (All the girl vampires will definitely like this handy spiky thing. lol) Her nail polish is Dark Passion's Koffin nails Shades of Red. Scarlet's signature hairstyle is Ivy by Alice Project. Her blindfold has a little iron cross and safety pins created by Kio at Dark Style Fair, and her sleek black horns are Damned Princess by DirtyStories at Dark Style Fair. The wispy anthers are by Death Row at Suicide Dollz. They look really cool when you wear them, almost like little glittering lights the tiny white points in them. Scarlets skin is an exclusive by Jalwa at World Goth Fair. It's the Celine skin with lovely gothic purple makeup for eyes and lips. By the way, did you guys pick up all the little gifts throughout the three World Goth Fair sims? Be sure you get your free sunblock 1000 at Chaos, Panic, and Disorder before the summer gets here. lol

World Goth Fair: The 101st Flying Bats

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Thunder was reassigned from the Deathhead Scouts on the suspicion of helping the Rebellion. He was of course found innocent, but still was forbidden from ever leaving Cursed again. He made the best of his new command of Curse's Air Force, The Flying Bats. Patrolling the skies during the big World Goth Day event was the most excitement he's had in a year. He listened intensely as the 101st reported an attempted kidnapping of Elizabeth, the little sister of the Rebellion's Leader. Would the kidnapping be thwarted by the land troops, or would Cursed be proven to be unsafe for humans?

I have some awesome things to show you elegant vamps. Is this furniture great or what? The Gothic steampunk chair and ottoman are by Ravenghost and you can still scoop it up on sale until May 31 at We <3 Role Play. The gothic arch chair has multiple sits for guys and girls, will rez wine glasses, books, and cigars and automatically attach it to you! The pillows will also change textures. Love it!  The matching ottoman comes a pose for the guy and girls. Behind me is the badass Ravenghost floor Candelabra. You change touch it to change the metal colors. Next to it is the Graphic Chair with bat art by Bauwerk available at World Goth Fair. To the left of me is Bauwerk's Amber lamp. The lamp is mod so I switched the lamp's amber to a water alpha and added a glow. The skybox is once more the amazing cool The Chatham Loft by Trompe Loeil that I have living in since it was released. lol. I love how it has materials and projectors built right into it. Okay, you want to know a little more about what I am wearing? Well, I brought back my character the Deadhead Scout Thunder from last year's World Goth Fair. Some of the things I used are still available but not all. I put this outfit together while the Fantasy Faire was still running. I went to find the 62 Jacket this morning at BOOM's mainstore, but I didn't see it. I hope it will be added later. The jacket is great and comes with a hud to change the colors on buttons, tie pin, vest, collar, and shirt. My new vampire ears I also picked up at the Fantasy Faire, you find them at Trap mainstore now. The ears have a hud to scale the size, edit the main skincolor, highlight, shadow, and ear tip glow. The wings are from the Yasum Steamwing gacha at the Fantasy Gacha. I played it several times and won an Epic! One of the smaller batwings I turned into a lapel pin.

World Goth Fair: The Vampire Squids

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The Elders were worried for the safety of the visiting humans during the celebration of World Goth Day. Patrolling the sea would be the Navy of Cursed, The Vampire Squids.  

Time is running out to scoop up the awesomeness. Over at We <3 Role Play can you get this excellent Nick Belt Coat outfit from FATEplay for 25% off in white or midnight colors, and the Dueling Gloves. The gloves come with a color hud, and the ability to have hands open, closed, long cuff (like I used above), or short. The Vampire Squid is wearing an AMAZING skin by Pink Fuel that that fills all your Drow needs for both girls, femboys, and guys. It has tintable eyebrows and every applier you will ever need! (Slink hands/feet, Lola, Lush, Puffi, loud mouth, phat/cuteazz, ghetto booty. wowmeh, and perkies) Femboys might have already have tried and worn the Pink Fuels skins but those of you new to this let me explain how it works. You wear the normal girl skin, than choose either Boi or Athletic Boy tattoo later. This replaces the female breast and groin with a male version. What you end up with a lovely angelic male. This means the skin can be worn on either a male or female base avatar. If you want to give it a try, check out the demo! For the image above, I am wearing my normal male shape, but I have used the Boi version of Pink Fuels on male-on-female-base in the past.  This new Drow series is even better then the past Boi styles! Contraption has a cool helmet at We <3 RolePlay that's great for wearing while shoving coal in your steam submarine engine, or just decorating your unground lair and looking cool! On the wall is a Steam Furnace from Ravenghost. The detail and style of his work is wonderful. In the gacha area of WLRP, his Steampunk Luminaires has returned! I was so happy to see it was back and gave it another try. Good thing I did because I won the rare! Woot! From the Fantasy Gacha, is the mesh Victory boots for men by Yasum. Don't miss these! From World Goth Fair, I am wearing a cool light red to purple hair color from the Declan hair for men by Damselfly. While you are there, be sure to pick up the free Damselfly gift for men and women. The red-orange wingback chair comes from the WGF Salon Set by Nacht. It comes with matching couch, chair, and table and it's a 50% donation. To the left is the Graphic Chair Octopus by Bauwerk. It's editable mesh so I gave the chair a tint to match my color theme. I did something even more crazy with Bauwerk's nice Gothic Gazebo, I combined it with the Skybox by Trompe Loeil! Each section of the Gazebo is editable. It's really beautiful on its own but if you need to, you can also transform it like I did!

World Goth Fair: Dissension

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Not everyone loved the idea of humans and Darks intermingling for one day a year. The foremost critic of this new policy was none other than the creator of penal colony himself, Kaiser Kruel. Despite his protest, the event was moving forward so he sent out his righthand man to do his dirty work. Gin was delighted with the task. As fabulous as he looked, he was just as vicious. There was nothing Gin loved more than breaking wayward Darks who didn't appreciate the infinite wisdom of Kaiser Kruel.

Glamtastic Gin returns by request to rock fashions made for both guys and girls. The fun Madhatter hat with spider comes from Mitternacht outfit by the Avatar Bizarre. The jacket is Avatar Bizarre's Panzermensch. Gin is getting away with wearing the strappy pants for girls from Endorphin. And his boots are also for girls from the Little Bat's gacha Axi Boots. His Dracula half-rimmed glasses are by Eclectica. His fangs and fangs jewels are by [ni.Ju]. Gloves with materials by Fatewear. His favorite shirt is KC No.53 by Kyoko Couture, and skin Noctis by Tableau Vivant. His poor victim's style card is on the Dark Phantom blog post: The Crimson Ruler, but I can tell you her purse is Pipistrello by Bliensen + MaiTai with little bat charms on the string, and the pose I used for her comes the Gacha Pond Love Bites vampire poses by NanTra. (I won them all expect that elusive pose #2. *grumbles*) Now let's talk about this cool scenery! The lordly black Chtuluh chair is by bauwerk and comes with a collection of single poses. Behind the chair is a gigantic mesh black marble Oblodisk with red flowers. Love it! It comes with and without lighting,. To the side is the Cthulhu Urn by Nacht. For this picture, I used the Gentleman's Cane by Chaos, Panic and Disorder, but if you head over to the CPD booth at WGF you can pick up skull headed Ripper's Walking Stick.

World Goth Fair: Officially Licensed Band Hoodies!

(click to enlarge)
Happy World Goth Day gang! There are news stories all over the net about it, parties are going on in major cities, and very close to the epicenter of this growing holiday is SecondLife. Yes, you read that right. Because one of the founders, DJ Cruel Britannia, also spins the tunes here in SL at Club Gothika. Something truly special is going on. The real and cyber have merged and compliment each other. People who love gothic music and fashion but don't have a local club to go to or a concert to attend, can meet up with like-minded folks from all over the world and celebrate together live in virtual space. Earlier in the day, goth celebrity Raziel Panic, of You Shriek, dropped by Club Gothika. Yesterday Jasyn Bangert, of God Module welcomed everyone to SL's World Goth Fair in a short Youtube clip. JP Shea, of the JesusClever, returns this year to celebrate with everyone on WGD. This morning CruxShadows gave a shoutout of the good things going on at WGF raise money for S.O.P.H.I.E. Last Friday, Jordon Reyne performed live at WGF and donated her tips to S.O.P.H.I.E. With all this excitement and everyone wanting to make a positive difference in the world, what better way to celebrate than get the officially licensed hoodies from 35 awesome gothic and industrial bands! 100% of the proceeds go to S.O.P.H.I.E, (Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred, and Intolerance Everywhere).



35 Band Hoodies: Ad.Ver.Sary, Angels of Liberty, Angelspit, Antigen Shift, Assemblage 23, Bella Morte, BlakOpz, Calling All Astronauts, Carnival Star, Caustic, Covenant, Die Sektor, Everything Goes Cold, Faces of Sarah, FGFC820, God Module, Grooving in Green, iVardensphere, New Zero God, Panic Lift, Pretentious Moi?, Rhombus, Skeletal Family, Strap-On Halo, The Cruxshadows, The Eden House, The Gothsicles, The Last Cry, The Last Dance, The March Violets, The Mekano Set, Vendemmian, Voltaire, XP8, You Shriek.


The hoodies are created by Damien Fate (FATEwear). Sizes by Nephilaine Protaganist (PixelDolls, House of Rain, GALLACTIC, The Muses, Leto, Volstead, Pale Empress and Geometry). Textures by Lokii Violet (MV, Club Gothika). Licensing by Axi Kurmin (House of Rain, Beautiful Freaks, Pale Empress, GALLACTIC, Club Gothika) & DJ  Cruel Britannia (Club Gothika). There are 35 bands, and 35 hoodies for male or female. The gacha machines are located on all 3 sims. Each hoodie comes with an informational notecard that tells you about the band you won. (Who knows, maybe you will discover a great new band this way!) This year the organizers have introduced a collector's pack that contains all shirts, non-transfer, for 5KL. But if you want to take a chance on the gacha, you might win a secret prize there.  Even if you don't know all the bands, I recommend picking up this hoodie because it's nicely made, is limited to this event only which ends June 1st, it's officially licensed by each and every band, it cost only 40L a spin, and all the money goes straight to a good cause!

What better to celebrate World Goth Day than meeting with your Goth friends from all around the world, listening to music, and opening up all those cool band hoodie bags? -^

In the top image I am wearing the band hoodie with the S.O.P.H.I.E logo on upper right side. The wonderful Urban Voodoo necklace by Scrubs is available at Dark Style Fair, and you can get it in silver, bronze or gold. It comes with a x,y,z resize script. The cheek piercing by HV are one part of a set for men. When you touch the stone, you can change it to several different jewel tones, I used crystal. The headphone and blindfold are from a Fantasy Gacha by {anc}. The blindfold was a perfect fit. I tinted it darker, and then hid the more feminine upper part of the headphone set. The war paints and second set of piercings are by Haus of Darcy. You can pick them up for 45L at We <3 Role Play. Hairstore Scars is back inworld. I was able to scoop up a few style I was missing such as this one, Last. In the lower image, you can see the cargo shorts I am wearing by Kio. They fit on both girls and guys, come in standard sizes, and one with a deformer for female rear and hip size. My undershirt is by K!ng, my favorite fishnet/skull stocking are by Erratic. On my head is Stella, the limited edition plushie bat from HorrorFest, but you can pick up the normal colors at silentsparrow's main store. My nails are by Dark Passion's Greyscale Koffin Nails you can pick up World Goth Fair. For Bat Blogger Aarya's style card, you can find it on her blog: Dark Phantom. In the center of the picture is a wonderfully dark cake by Aftershok. It's a 100% donation to S.O.P.H.I.E and you find it on World Goth Fair Port Seraphine sim. At the foot of the purple chair is an adorable Bat plushie by Chaos, Panic, and Disorder. There are several theme plushie bat you can pick up such is winter, steampunk, and robot at WGF. The fun coffin holder for my Vampire Vintage wine is by Aphrodite. When you touch the lid, it slides all horror movie-like and then in local chat it makes a boast about its superb quality. Too fun. Touch the bottle and you get these great skeleton hand wine goblets. This was part of a set at HorrorFest that I lost my mind over and had to have it all. lol I don't know if the gacha is still available, but I gave a link the main store in the credits below. The giant cartoony bat and the two cute Bunnicula are by the power duo Beetlebones and OhMai. They were prizes from of the brilliant Nuville inworld theme park. Chairs by Trompe Loeil, one of them is tinted purple. This gorgeous skybox has become my new home. I love it! It was part of a Facebook Like gift offer from Trompe Loeil, but if you missed it, don't worry. You can these wonderful all mesh skyboxes at the mainstore for 250L in light or dark. They come with materials, projector lights, and it has a low land impact.

World Goth Fair 2014: Scarlet's Sister

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The Council of Elders decided it was cruel and unusual punishment to snatch people from their lives for displaying any hint of "darkness" and dumping them here without warning, never to be seen again. They thought it would be "merciful" for one day a year, to open Curse's gates for tourists and the foolhardy. Since there is no bigger holiday in Cursed then World Goth Day, it made sense that would be the day. Two neighboring human cities, Sium and Port Seraphine are also joining celebration. Rumor has it, Scarlet's little sister Elizabeth will be among the visitors.

Sneaking over here is Blogger Bat extraordinaire, Aarya Phantomhive of the Dark Phantom blog. She's wearing the Astarte hair with a widow peak bang by LaNoir Soleil Designs. This fun Miyuki outfit by Fosca de Le I'm sure many of my Lolita readers will love. It's especially cute when you add the Bat garter by Squeek! and match it with the Batwing Ruffle Platforms by The Sugar Garden. These badass Lolita shoes work with the Slink flat feet and are must haves for every EGL. Her arm warmers by Greymoon you can pick up over the WGF Sium sim, and the make up and nails by Beautiful Freaks. The Loli nails texture is awesome, perfect for Lolita style. Adding a little more punk is the spiked headband by Dark Waters Designs. You can find it at the Gacha Pond.

World Goth Fair 2014: The Enforcer

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: I'm what the locals call an Enforcer in the city of Cursed, the penal colony of "Darks." In truth, Enforcers don't really have a job title. You see, I was never here and you never saw me. That's not an empty threat either, I really can wipe your memories. *points to the hair* For those who are clueless, that's what the white hair means, an especially powerful Dark. Seriously, wiping the memories of hundreds of humans is something this White Hair would rather not suffer, but it's not my call. The trouble is, after the scandal a year ago of a human/dark hybrid infiltrating Cursed, and the fallout of a recent famous rock star suddenly ending up here, the Scarlet Rebellion finally won a victory. The Council of Elders will open up the city for one day a year.    (Note: to read past versions of the Cursed storyline go here: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7)

WORLD GOTH FAIR! WORLD GOTH FAIR! That's right. The Bats have left the belltower. It's time to head down to WGF and get your Goth on. There are three sims, yes THREE sims of wonderful gothic creations to help raise funds for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation to help stamp out prejudice, hatred, and intolerance everywhere. This is one of my all time favorite events in SL. So many wonderful things come together at this event. WGF will introduce you to all the many active Gothic designers in SL, and even some who are making their debut here. While you shop and drool over the goodies, you can listen to awesome music from Nightbreed Radio and come party at Club Gothika with some of the finest Gothic DJs in SL. Magical things happen. For instance, Friday there was live concert by Jordan Reyne at WGF, and she donated all her tips to S.O.P.H.I.E.. She was amazing with a powerful and compelling voice. Watch her video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaGylwkpPOg Returning this year will be the wildly popular officially licensed band clothing! I have sneaked a peek at a few bands listed for WGF this year, and I was jumping up and down. Mark your calendars for May 22, World Goth Day. There will be 12 hours of nonstop live DJing and prizes for costumes. It's a lot of fun! World Goth Fair runs from May 15 - June 1st.

 

In a true sign Darkness is taking over in May, The Dark Style Fair has also just begun. Many of top designers of SL have come out in force to tempt you over to the darkside with thier tasty goodies. It runs from May 17 - June 7th. In my outfit above I am wearing a mix of things from both events. From World Goth Fair, I am wearing an outfit from ImmateriA that includes pants, suspenders, shirt, undershirt, and a mask. Midnight Eyes are the latest By Snow and include an excellent HUD for the perfect fit, and adding glows or fullbright. The Fishnet nails are a free wearable demo By Snow you can pick up in her booth. On my leg is Bat Garter belt by Squeek! It's super easy to adjust to fit. Love it. Over at Dark Style, I am wearing a funky civil war-like hat by R3VOLT. It comes with a hud to change the colors and textures on all the different material zones. Very cool. The Vanquisher war paint and eye makeup is another excellent new creation from Lovely Disarrary. I'm not often seen wearing tattoos, but I thought it might be fun to wear the Punk tattoo by Zentro. It comes in black ink and color. Did you notice my busted-up hands? That's a sweet tattoo layer for Slink hands by Clemmm. On my nose is bandaid from the Apple May Designs gacha, I won the black skulls. Fun! Death Row Designs has new ankle length Stompers at the TDSF. They come in rigged and non rigged. I am wearing the black and white version. The staff I am wearing is from the Fantasy Gacha by Primus. (I'm so happy I won the red staff.) It's a working weapon with sheath and hold, and you can smack people in the head with it too. lol

NEWS: New Second Life Library Avatar


Linden Labs has now released the new Mesh avatars that new members can choose when they sign up.

WOW I'm loving the Vampire Set so hard! Vampires, Zombies, Wolfman, Werewolf, Werebat, Slayers, Goth girls, and even Blackula! It's Christmas in May! These are all free for members and 100% originals. Wowowowowowow!!!

To get your copies, download the update to the SL official viewer. Select the "People" button in your viewer to see the new selections. (If you don't have this button on, just add it to your tool buttons with the toolbar options.)

You can change the hair, and clothing and replace the shape on the new mesh avatars. You can even try to wear their clothes and hairs if you want. I was able to take the Vampire Slayer's outfit. lol One thing you will miss is the edit options for the face. They also lack facial and hand expressions, and no eye movement. But overall really fun new addition to SL! p.s. The Bat avatar comes with giant gargoyle-like wings not shown in the preview above.

The Weighing of the Heart

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Welcome mortal. Your soul’s journey has come to it's final test. Is your heart lighter than a feather, or is it weighed heavy with sin? The Keeper of the Balance is all seeing. Woe be unto you for he can not be tricked or bribed. The Wicked shall perish here.

When I hopped over to the Fantasy Gacha and spotted the Ensepulcher series by Papermoon, I squeaked and started hitting that machine like mad. I'm a huge Ancient Egypt fan. Anubis is my favorite deity. The detail on this gacha is wonderful and of course the Scales of Truth is a powerful symbol. Many ideas from Ancient Egypt are still with us today such as the commandants, going into the light, the judgement of the dead, and an idyllic afterlife. They believed when a person died, their soul journeyed through the underworld. If they completed all tests they would reach the end and stand on trail before Anubis. They would recite the 42 Commandments of Ma'at and proclaim to have not broken any of the laws. Anubis however is not fooled by lies. He would take your heart (which thought to be the seat of your soul), and weigh it against the feather of Ma'at. If your heart was heavier than the feather, your heart would be destroyed and thus you are annihilated. If you pass the test, your soul is then allowed to enter the blessed afterlife in the Elysium Fields. (Yes, that is Egyptian too!) ... The Papermoon set has all the tools used in the Egyptian mummification process such as the 4 Canopic Jars that hold the internal organs, and a cranial hook to pull out your brains out through your nose. Hey if you want your body to remain preserved for all time, you have to make a few sacrifices. lol

So how does Anubis rip your heart out? How about the badass Azrael gloves by Remarkable Oblivion? They reminds me of Horus with the feather details and talon like claws. The Azrael gloves come with a Hud that will switch the colors from black, gold, and bloody. You can also pose the fingers, and thats not all, they animate in wonderfully scary way too! LOVE IT! You can find them at the Dark Style Fair which opens May 17th.

The rest of my outfit comes from pieces I have collected over the years, I have several different Anubis characters. This one wears the Hawk hair by Wasbi Pills, Leg Harness by .Shi, Wolfen eyes and makeup By Snow, sandals by Pure Poison, and Slink Claws with cool foot pads for Slink male flat foot. For Throwback Thursday fun, my non-mesh items are the Anubis Ears and the Anubis staff from the Tokushi Anubis, collar and cuffs by Illusions, and kilt by Shai. The Pyramid and firebowls are from the HR.PyramidePalace by Han Roffo. You can't get it anymore, but the dark Pyramid dungeon is still available.

Fantasy Faire: The Living Stone

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The victims of Medusa's attack had their souls merged into stone, therefore they could not pass into the afterlife. Persephone, being the daughter of Demeter, had the power to restore their lives. However Medusa's magic was too powerful. The people remained stone. Their steps were difficult and sluggish. Some of them begged Hades for mercy, and he quickly obliged. His touch swiftly brought an end to their suffering. During their labor, Hades and Persephone came upon a young man named Theo who had broken in two at the hip. Hades shook his head sadly and said nothing could be done. Persephone scoffed at him and said, "Nonsense." She took a stone deer who had also been broken and merged the two together. The revived young man was ecstatic. He had been blessed by a miracle. His joy was infectious and even Hades almost cracked a grin. But the young man had trouble walking on his new tiny deer legs. His massive stone weight was just too heavy. When it seemed like he might be give up, Persephone said she had an idea. When she returned, she was carrying the leash of a beautiful albino dragon. "Why walk when you can fly?" She smiled broadly and handed the reigns to Theo. It was the happiness moment of his tragic life. Yes, horrible things happened to him, but with the kindness, skill, and encouragement of others he was able overcome strife and soar to new heights.

This story is my reply to the, "Why I relay" Fantasy Faire blogger challenge. I hope you all enjoyed it! This weekend is the last of the Fantasy Faire. Be sure to go and have some fun, and help raise some money for the American Cancer Society, Rely for Life. The Palace of Tears Hunt part 1 will end along with the Faire on May 11th, but part two will continue on the Palace of Tears sim until the 18th. While you are there, take a look at all the wonderful art created by the Fantasy bloggers and photographers in SL. Such a great idea. You might spot me somehow sneaking in among all those talented people. How did that happen?  lol -^

The Ridable Dragon from Dwarfins is fun to wear and it comes in 8 different colors. When you fly, he will fly with you! A shoulder pet version of the flying dragon is a donation item. It has a tiny Dwarfins rider in male or female, and dragon comes in either light and dark. These wonderful horns are by LaNoir Soleil and they have a color change hud for the gems and horns. The tribal tattoo is also by La Noir Soleil and looks great on the Fallen Gods Lacrimosa skin. The faun legs are a rigged mesh attachment for male or female and come with a tattoo fur layer from Satyrs Moon. Wasabi Pills has a fantastic new long hair for men or women can pick up at the faire. The blue, purple, pink version is a donation item. The collar and arm harness are a past limited edition from Glam Affair. This picture was taken at above the Hope's Horizo sim. It's an amazing all mesh build by Jaimy Hancroft of Death Row and Dwarfins. You can walk from the ground level all the way to top. It's a lot of fun to explore.  Have a fun weekend gang!

Fantasy Faire: The Horror of Sanctum

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The mystery of the souls lost to Hades were soon discovered in the city of Sanctum. It was completely deserted. Not a single living creature stirred. Everywhere Hades looked there were grotesque statues twisted in horror. Some had tumbled down. Fragments of heads, leg, arms, hands, and fingers littered the road. He picked up a finger and studied it closely. The details were far too exact, it even had the grooves of a fingerprint. His rage boiled. He raised his fists to heavens and bellowed, "MEDUSA!"

These wonderful statue avatars by Fallen Gods are a donation item at Fantasy Faire. It comes with appliers for Slink hands and feet, eyes, and a kilt for the men, and a dress for the ladies. For hair, I used the very greek god-like style Kawashima from Tableau Vivant, and the new Tableau Vivant Diabolito for the lady. To match both hair to the statue textures I used grey from the Spring pack. The Diabolito Hair you can find at the new The Men's Department sim. Both poses are past Madpea Hunt gift from Image Essentials. Posing as the Curious Lady is Aarya of the Dark Phantom blog.

Below the style credits you will see all the freebies I tracked down at this year's Fantasy Faire! In the image above, I am using the free Stone Sword from MacMoragh and Muse. You will also find a free matching stone rigged mesh long tunic for the guys. Have fun collecting the goodies! And forget there is also the Palace of Tears hunt going on.
