Fae Real Estate Secrets

One thing I can tell you: I am no fan of complex puzzles, games that delight in making you lose (obviously gachas are an exception), So the truth is, I don’t do a lot of scavenger hunts.But when my friend (and I’m so honoured to call her that) Riven (yes, that Riven, of the whimsical and magical Rivendale), told me she had some items for the Twisted Hunt, and would I be interested in blogging them, I said, “Sure” without hesitation, because Riven‘s items are always wonderful to see and play with.

Gwyneth also has some homes to get ready for the influx of people into Faerie.

Gwyneth also has some homes to get ready for the influx of people into Faerie. This is one of those homes. It’s from the current round of The Arcade (mumble, mumble, gachas, mumble mumble, see above), made by 22769, a lovely little Victorian number that she thought would look great out on the edge of town, not far from the Book Forest.

Of course, Faeries are attracted to beauty, whether it be dark or light.

Of course, Faeries are attracted to beauty, whether it be dark or light. So there had to be a few accents to make the place attractive from the outside, before anyone ever passed the threshold.

That’s where these rose trellises come in!

That’s where these rose trellises come in! Riven did such a lovely job with them, and the wood textures on them matched so well with the wood accents on the house that I knew at once where I wanted to put them.

And, as the Fae world moves into Autumn, splashes of colour become more and more important. It’s one reason why I chose these !go! boots from a past Fantasy Gacha Carnival for Gwneth; their green makes her happy against an otherwise quiet ensemble, colour-wise, for her. It’s also why I chose this lush hair from the talented mind of Truth Hawks (Natalie, currently at Uber), so that she’d have a little bit of summertime lingering around her.

The trellis set includes an arch, a wide trellis, and a narrow one.

And then of course there’s the beauty of the individual flower.

And then of course, there’s the beauty of the individual flower. Worth contemplating, touching (but not plucking!), losing oneself in.

Ah, if only Gwyneth didn’t have so much more to do. I know she could contemplate these roses for hours if there weren’t so many things pulling her in so many directions.

Oh, well. Some lucky Faerie will get to live in this house and enjoy these roses every single day. And that’s enough to call Gwyneth’s work here finished.

On Being a Tree

No, seriously. Have you ever thought about actually being a tree? I had a roleplaying character once, back when I was, I don’t know, fifteen (or at least mentally), whose main power was that she could turn in to a tree and spread an aura of unshakeable calm. The boys in my D&D group loved that, I can tell you.

To start out with, though, it is possible.

To start out with, though, it is possible to become a tree. Obviously, you need the right environment. Duh, Faerie. And the right attitude. This, for me, can present a problem. So in lieu of the right attitude, I choose the right clothing. I mean, it’s really the same thing, isn’t it?

And you finish it up with shoes that are made of actual oak leaves. I kid you not. Or, as Fen might have said before she became The Amazing Catwoman and developed a worse potty mouth than I used to have, “For-real-sies”. No, I am not making this up. Don’t ask her: she’ll probably tell you to fuck off.

You have to appreciate shadow.

You have to appreciate shadow. Because what tree doesn’t grow up in the shadows of other trees? Well, aside from those fake tree plantations, or maybe trees in an orchard, or — yeah, whatever: we’re talking about actual, real forests here, not some artificial construct made by other hands, be they mortal or Fae.

You have to really want to be a tree.

You have to really want to be a tree. And I’m not taking about sort of going, “Yeah; it might be nice to be a tree.” I’m talking about full-scale, bark-fetish level tree envy. Like, “O how marvellous it would be to have a thousand year lifespan and never have to talk to another human being again as long as I lived, assuming someone didn’t chop me down and turn me into, I don’t know, some evil marionette and make me talk as if I were a … OK, obviously I’m going off on a bit of a tangent here.

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night…..

I’ve been singing this song to myself for days. And like all earworms, even though it’s beautiful the repetition can get to you after a while. So I went to a Realm of Water to sing to myself and hopefully get it out of my system.

Don’t forget: the Midsummer Enchantment event closes tomorrow, so you only have one more day to pick up this beautiful tunic from Arcadia, or these gorgeous Bento wings from PsychoByts, or these lovely Dark Passions nails!

Something about this song has caught me. It was always beautiful, always a picture of reminiscence and longing. Why do I need this song right now?

Feels Like Rain

I can remember that just a few days ago, I was excited about the organically growing Faerie around me. And I had a lively conversation with Dyisi about whether or not she hates me. And some other things. And I can remember that just a few days ago, I was excited about redecorating my beautiful treehouse and making the house on the island a beautiful place for Nathaniel and me to live. I can muster a little bit of excitement about the Great Faire, but there’s some fear in there as well. What if Mother replies and doesn’t want to see me? I don’t think I could bear it. Of course I’ve heard nothing from her as yet. But we live in hope? Not always.

Springtime.

I’m remembering that kind of feeling I used to get when we’d have a rainy spring in London. Don’t get me wrong: English spring is a beautiful season—if it’s not constantly grey and raining. And while it’s not constantly grey and raining here, it is often raining. I was told to expect this when I decided to relocate to the Pacific Northwest. Faerie’s weather, of course, doesn’t have to adhere to the island’s—but if I don’t consciously change it, here it seems to want to be just like White Owl. It’s beautiful, truly. And the greens are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. But it may be a little more work than I was expecting.

What would help me feel better, I wonder? Ice cream? Music? Great sex? Learning something new? Some combination of the above?

Only the Faire to look forward to.

Right now, it feels like I have only the Faire to look forward to. But that’s something. And I can’t get this idea out of my head; it’s a story about a raven Fae, nowhere near as vicious as Nemaine, and a little girl. And it has something to do with roses. I’ll figure it out. Maybe I’ll figure it out as soon as it stops raining.

This month’s GENRE theme is Victorian!

There is always so much going on! If you’re not careful, you could miss stuff. For example, this month’s GENRE theme is Victorian! Genre is one of those events that has been going on for a few years and has had a few spikes and dips, but the last couple of months have been amazing. Last month was Viking, and I forgot to tell you about it, or I had too much other stuff to talk about, or my work schedule got out of hand (likely), so I didn’t get around to that. This time around, I promised myself I’d talk about Genre. I also haven’t got a chance to talk very much about what’s happening at Hairology this month, so I want to show you three different outfits in this post. Don’t worry: I do have an epic story post coming, hopefully tomorrow! But tonight is all about Fa-fa-fa-fa-fashion!

This dress is Senzafine‘s Zenobia gown, and her textures are really striking, no matter what colour you choose. I can never choose, so I tend to fatpack her gowns, but that’s because I have a hard time with, you know, choices.

I kept Gwyneth a redhead for this post, because I love the red eyebrows on this skin. The freckles are also great.

Stealthic hair from Hairology!

The hair here is Stealthic, for Hairology, which closes in a few days. The hairlines and textures on Stealthic‘s hair have been impressing me since I first discovered them at the 2015 Hair Fair, and this is one of my favourites to date: Cadence. This is Lelutka’s new Cate Bento mesh head, which is a little softer than the Simone. The ears are Swallow‘s Elf Ears High Definition, the eyes are from Mesange: the Bering eyes are available for a few more days at We ❤ Roleplay. I found the Earthstones Velvet Rose Choker at The Liaison Collaborative.

Another great hair from Hairology!

This next outfit features another great hair from Hairology, Runaway’s Jasmin. The skin is another of 7 Deadly s{K}ins‘ releases for Skin FairWednesday. These are the same eyes from Mesange: I just loved the purple colour with this dress, and I kept the rose choker on her as well.

Beautiful furniture from Raindale adorns this set for the whole shoot: these items are from the Birdside gacha. It was at the February Crossroads events, but you can find it at Raindale’s main store now. The gown is from BareRoseTasha in purple. The gown comes in sections, and it’s beautifully shaped. it comes with boots, but here Gwyneth is wearing the Harriet Booties from Wicca’s Wardrobe, which are also available at Genre, along with the dress.

This is the new Catwa Lona head.

This is the new Catwa Lona head. One of my favourite styles from the March Hairology is from Iconic; this is Esme, and I’ve been wearing it around just casually for weeks now. This is a Lumae freckled applier for Catwa, Ella, also available at Skin Fair. The eyes are once again Mesange; these are the Capriccio Eyes, which you can get for a few more days at The Chapter 4. The necklace is from Empyrean ForgeBreccia.

So, yeah; not a lot of my usual scintillating content here, but do take a trip to Genre. You’ll be glad you did. And don’t forget to visit the Skin Fair before it closes!

No style cards for this post: everything’s in the text, and I’m kinda tired, and it’s Dyisi’s RL birthday, so I have to think of her right now. 🙂

Thoughts Are Things

So I took a walk down to the other side of my small Realm, because I had this idea in my head that perhaps the Gypsy Davey had listened to the boys and the other Rom who live here and decided to take up residence in the special (and it is pretty amazing) vardo they have set up especially for him. I haven’t asked them what they’ll do if he says no, though I think I might talk Dyisi into moving up here if I let her live in that.

The mist was just about to burn off when I got near the vardo site.

The mist was just about to burn off when I got near the vardo site. And there, sitting next to the amazing Rom Castle, which is what some of the neighbours are calling the place, was a vardo I’ve seen him travel in before. So. I could walk up and just knock on the door, I guessed….

Or I could notice that suddenly, a greenhouse with a flower shop has appeared not too far from there, across from the red cottage; just the kind of flowers I like, and a greenhouse filled with roses. I remember once as a young woman I wrote a series of stories for a guy I loved more than I thought I could ever love anyone, about a house where things only had to be wished to be brought into reality. I haven’t thought about those stories in so long. But now, it got me thinking. Thinking about the way things spring in to being. I wonder if I wasn’t somehow foreshadowing my life now, all those years ago. All those years ago. It wasn’t all that long ago. And if I think of that guy, I still miss him. And I wish he could see all this. But then, flowers.

I just sat there and thought, for a long time.

I just sat there and thought, for a long time. About how things manifest. About why there was an Oxford Circus tube station sign on the front of this greenhouse. I thought a lot.

I thought about getting up and marching over to that vardo.

I thought about getting up and marching over to that vardo and just knocking until somebody came to the door, and if it was him, great, and if it was some little Rom girl, also great, and welcoming them to the Realm, and maybe offering to treat them to dinner down the pub or at one of the little cafés on the green. I thought about that a lot. And the roses smelled wonderful, and the sunlight shifted and shifted.

Catching Hearts

So much to blog, so little time! The beginning of the month is always a whirlwind, isn’t it? All those great events opening up, finding out what our favourite creators have been up to….

I’m on several time deadlines: my holiday is almost over, and I’m preparing to go back to work on Wednesday, so you may get a few small posts today, because I have such a lot to show you.

Catching Hearts

As it’s February, many events have a Valentine’s Day theme. Whether for or against, there is a preponderance of hearts and red out there this month! I haven’t put Gwyneth in a stunning gown for, oh, at least 12 hours now, and this one from Enfant Terrible is definitely a stunner. It’s at We ❤ Roleplay, the Decimas Gown. The accompanying fur is just called Winter Fur, and if you’re not in to fur, the gown itself comes with a little wrap that you can choose to wear in different colours. You can change the colour of the harness as well via the included HUD. As often, Gwyneth is in skin from Lumae; this is the Aurora applier, only for Lelutka heads, style Loved, in T3, Shell. It’s available at The Coven. These eyes are new from Mesange and available at The Chapter 4; they are called Jasper Eyes. I love Mesange eyes so much that I’ve just begun fat packing them wherever they’re sold. The ease of using the Omega eye appliers is completely addictive and has spoiled me for other eyes. Gwyneth’s hair is, as often, from the hair design powerhouse that is Wasabi Pills, the Happy hair. It’s at The Chapter 4, part of a gacha, and it comes in two great styles. The cheek hearts are a gift from Adam n EveValentine Cheeks. They’re at the Shop Your Heart Out event. At the Fetish Fair, I found these beautiful new ears from Eclipse Art Studio. These are the Elf Dior ears, and they’re quite customisable. I love the feathers, and the grommet-style piercings are really well done. The necklace is also from EA StudioFeathers Dior. Gwyneth’s crown is from B.F (Bitch Factory), called just Crown Gold; I love the deep red gems and how they reflect the red of the dress. From the magical mind of E.V.E come the Frosted Heart and the Floating Hearts and Floating Petals. The Frosted Heart is available at the Shop Your Heart Out event, and the Floating Hearts and Petals are at We ❤ Roleplay. The Chained Orchid in the background is also from E.V.E; it’s at The Chapter 4 in a very nice gacha. And trust me: the ultra rare secret item is amazing!

I was going to write a story to go with this photo and some others I shot at the time, but my head just isn’t in to it right now. We’ll see if I can come up with something more creative by the end of the day, but for now, I hope you enjoy the photograph. And there are so many more pretty things from We ❤ Roleplay to show you, I don’t even know where to continue. I suppose I’ll do my next favourite thing with Gwyneth (after shopping and photoshopping!) and dress her up in cool outfits.
