May the waters run red.

||Oh, mighty Thassa, how you’ve cared and carried me – to many places in and out of this world. Cleanse my wounds and purify my skin as I pray within you. I’ve offered many times the life flow of others, so you too many enjoy the beginning and end as it always cycles. And here I am blessed that my prayers do not go unheard. Praise, oh mighty Thassa, as you drown me from the rest of the lands, please purge my memories of thoughts better off forgotten. I have come too far now to be stopped by the quakes of the heart.||

So it goes that work consumes, and in being the perfectionist, in-world pictures just weren’t expressing themselves as I hoped. As the world of SL continues to turn, The Fantasy Collective has once more opened the realm’s maw to bring us a world of Pirates! While the swashbuckler life isn’t exactly my favourite cup o’ tea, all the designers involved have made them quite the stylish folk. Featured is the lovely Pirate Jacket in Red from Peqe, as well as Olive‘s beautiful headband hair called Marina in Tangled Candies. There are plenty other lovely goods to mix-n-match, if not add to your personal inventory for just the perfect Pirate look or scenery. Be sure to click The Fantasy Collective banner below for more information and detailed gallery, courtesy of Seraphim. Inquire about any other piece worn in this ensemble and merry shopping!

She will be the queen.

||Perhaps if one held their breath, unconsciousness would eventually hit and leave the mind in an oxygen-depraved haze. But even that wouldn’t salvage the soul in its harvesting towards a new age. Who was to say who chose death over another chance in the service of the Red Witch. The moons had several passings, while the Central Fire stared unblinkingly across lands that were to idly come to burn and be cast in darkness no matter what. She kept to her hiding, the low profile, while doting hands and curt words meticulously pieced together parts of a master plan – one that would become whole with time and its fruition. The blood shed of green would begin soon enough once more, so the Red prospered.||

IR-64-Final2-2

So, as The Secret Affair has taken the grid by storm, everyone who adores exclusive creations by top designers will be sure to be spilling blood for their chance at the Iron Throne. This brand new event of course bears the theme in honor of Game of Thrones, a series that keeps us anticipating for more, if not ragequitting when our favourite character dies. While opening its doors in simultaneous release of the season 4 premiere April 6th, there are a few new additions that you may have missed if you haven’t re-visited. Firstly is !deviousMind‘s second creation to seemingly combat the beauty of her ‘Fire Priestess Melisandre’ Collars, the ‘Lady Margaery’ gowns. Elegant and magnificent are soft words in regards to the absolute beauty of these gowns, available in fitted mesh to treat your own built shape. You too can be the queen with these exclusive garbs in your hands, for there are many colours to choose from as well. Secondly, is the belated yet highly anticipated accessories by ieQED, Cache of Crowns 2 (gacha) and the Sunspear Pauldrons. You will not be disappointed in the detail of any of the gacha crowns, but definitely aim for the Ultra Rare Lion in Gold! Also, the shoulder armor pieces are stunning, if not intimidating; so be sure to keep your mind upon this season’s new addition of House Martell. Be sure to return to The Secret Affair and claim up these new items! Merry shopping all!

We’re going on and we’ll never stop.

One day she would be free of dreams.

||These lands of Gor were forever in their set likes of balance; set with rules that were continue on for eons to come. The Red Witch always held this concept to mind before, during, and after each exchange – whether it ended in bloodshed or led to better days. A woman was she who bore what she shouldn’t and toted in turn the dawn of new time. Many rivers would run red, with skies cast in a dark vacant of the Central Fire. Surely the shadows may dance amongst the flames which gave them life; ensnaring bones to ensure their passing into the next day and thereafter. The Red Witch had seen through many eyes, across several lands, and she’d see many more.||

Momento mori.

||These days that melt into night – mesh within their memories of time’s passage. As the Thassa swallows the Central Fire this day, the Red Witch found her mind waging war upon blessed body. It was the evening haze which always brought with it phantoms of haunting thought; for reflection of life was unfortunately a human flaw. She pondered on how the underground had become stable for the most part; although an eerie quiet was cast over trade routes. Imports and exports transitioned to new lands found and settled in as base, yet she could not shake the dawning of a change in her bones. It was the lingering of a presence that cast goosebumps along flesh, if not placed senses on high alert to remain vigilante. Nonetheless, with yet another chapter sadly coming to a close, a bloodied hand tucked that book away to pull forth another and paint pages red. It was becoming progressively worrisome that a veil had been cast over her occult precognition, yet she continued forward as a nefarious plague.||

Lay me down, and wash this world from me.

Side Quest: This is my nature, to nurture.

[[Oh, pure innocence, how you once crowned my skull and left me wondering of simpler things. These blossoms once virginal, though always beautiful – now symbolize a death to befall us all. And now the darker realms I roam; forever seeking to sate an appetite to a carnal core. Such is a clean slate now marked by wanton ink that delves to the bone. Some may even say my blood is tainted by the trials I’ve endured, but alas I strive on to take on this world and the next. These wastelands with apocalyptic geists are outside my window, while I wait to reach another high.]]

IR-58-Final1

So in this Side Quest issue, I was very much inspired by the mundane of nature and its clash with the modern world. Such an artistic scene is very popular in the video game and animation pop culture, so of course I thought, why not. To start off my fashion exhibit, some focal points are the ‘nature’ pieces I used: firstly that from an up and coming designer by the name of Iskra Bellic, owner of {INDOcile}. I was very much humbled with the opportunity to bring her creations into my world and in turn, show them all to my audience. The Mystikal Staff in Silver (shown above) is also available in Gold, and can be found on her marketplace here. While her collection is small, I personally sense a lot of potential to flood forth and for us to see lots more in the near future. I always get giddy of that aspect and hope all of you are as well. Secondly, are the head and mouth pieces from a Japanese shop by the name of *NAMINOKE, owned by Taiko McCaw. Available at the Depraved Nation: Luck Of The Irish Gacha Fair, you too can add these adorable creations to your own ensemble. Other events featured are that of [Bodify], which is where you’ll find my naughty little Gettin’ Handy Garter by the lovely Scarlett Loxingly, owner of The Scarlett Letter; there is also a new round of Suicide Dollz (a bi-weekly event) open in which you can find [geek.]‘s Got Capped Collars, available in 8 different colours. The Big Show definitely has its own audience, considering The Boobie Show and The Azz Show are now all in one glorious package. And not to forsake the men and uni-sex seeking readers, The Men’s Dept. has also re-opened its doors for the month of March with an array of discounted clothing, hair, accessories, and then some to suit everywhere from top quality creators all across the grid. Now to bring attention to one Fair that I attempted to avoid, but couldn’t and am glad I didn’t: The Skin Fair 2014! And the winner winner for me is the beautiful new Romy skin by none other than -Glam Affair-. I cannot even begin to express the beauty of this skin, with all the unique styling options with the available eye, eyebrows, lipsticks, and nose palates exclusively available at the Skin Fair. And a little treat is that -Glam Affair- has finally released beautiful Loudmouth appliers with an array of lipsticks to cater each skin tone! Ah, it is all so wonderful, but be forewarned there are 3 sims of skin designers all connected – so, with so much talent gathered in one spot, be sure to choose your look wisely! Expect me to be showing off this skin for many posts to come. But in the meantime, I expect you all to be hopscotching across these events and enjoying yourselves!

Side Quest: Real badasses eat chocolate chip cookies!

[[With our salvation in turmoil, we pray our days to survival and the good graces of luck. Skill is indeed innate, so the free-for-all will take its toll, and perhaps the exhaustion will reset our minds to being benevolent creatures. I walk this planet, fending off abominations whether they wear a monster or human mask; most lack any heart. But a settlement shall keep me grounded and perhaps I’ll find out if I am the hero or the villain.]]

IR-57-Final2

So, it was bound to happen: my wandering back to my roots of blogging my take on modern fashion attire inspired by my view of games, writing-muse, and of course, music. [geek.], C h a r y., [Pumpkin], and -UtopiaH- have definitely aided in attire or accessories when I feel SecondLife Gorean Evolved rules and regulations just aren’t my cup o’ tea. So, in this issue I am introducing my ‘Side Quests‘, which will enable me to traverse all the realms of SL and in turn showcase a myriad of styles. But do not fret, The Red Witch will always remain, and I am sure a lot of my loyal readers will take notice of how there will always be a sliver of Her in any plane. On to the news: Depraved Nation‘s Luck Of The Irish Gacha Fair has begun, featuring an amazing selection of designers and creations for you to partake in. As per all of their events, their organization and collaboration never fails to impress my eyes and want of style.

And the power in my veins.

||In the depths of dreamwalking, the zenith split as a maw with jagged teeth – only to shatter and scatter. A gaping nothing held, while the lands of Gor held its breath for what may follow after. Quite the silence before the storm, with the eruptions beams of white and blue piercing down into the Counter-Earth. The Red Witch found herself blinded, before light and flames engulfed entirety. A struggle for breath came forth, as her entirety was assaulted by tongues of fire – the burning sinking beyond flesh to gnaw upon her soul. She heard her own anguished screams ringing in ears, before the physical was ripped asunder, leaving her weightless and lost. Perhaps this was the experience of death while in slumber, such remained unknown. Until of course, she felt plucked and prodded, with a body renewed. Yet her fingers flailed out to press into viscous walls which held an odd elasticity. With nails now curling she began to tear the material asunder; tumbling forth from what she glimpsed was a pod. A horror briefly lit up mystic hues, with the idle bio-luminescence shedding light to the underground she lay in. While eyes adjusted, the Red Witch was much too rooted in shock, even as Mul crept forward to assist in her cleansing. A new generation of the Hive was to be tended to.||

IR-56-Final2

So, with We Love Roleplay! in full swing, everyone has also become aware of three other events: The Chapter Four is in its 11th Edition, being a monthly shopping event that opens the 4th of every month and Oneword, which is a bi-monthly event in its first round. In regards to The Chapter Four, it consists of 4 rooms: 1) Gacha, 2) Buy 1 for 2, 3) Under 100L$, and 4) Half Price. So, if anything, you get deals and sales aplenty from a wonderful selection of designers. As for Oneword, it is new to me, and I came across it while shuffling through a couple favourite blogs. The word they’ve selected for their first round is Tragedy, with each designer having to create an item, whether clothing, accessories, or poses that translate the meaning to them. Featured is the Electra gown by none other than the lovely *{Junbug}*. For those not aware, Electra is known throughout literature as the main character of two Greek tragedies, which bear her namesake – so this dress is indeed Grecian and all the more beautiful for the vengeful story it bears. Be sure to keep an eye out for more information and future rounds, by clicking here for Oneword, and clicking here for The Chapter Four. And now, to hop back to We Love Roleplay!, for the theme displayed and exercised this round is that of ‘Druids‘. Such a mystic power is held around the enigma of what and who these priestly beings truly were, even to this day. We may fantasize or hold theories, but nonetheless, I thoroughly love how this 10th round came together. Shown is Alchemy‘s Druid Headdress, which includes a full HUD to change all three sets of horns and adorning jewels and Aii‘s Anima Halo, available in a pack that has Bronze, Gold, Ivory, Onyx, and Silver to hover at your back. Lastly, to sneak in that third event: The Fantasy Room, brought to us by the same team which brought you The Gorean Room. It is a monthly event focused on bringing new releases for all of us roleplayers, whether in the form of clothing, hair, weapons, accessories, poses, decor, and the like for as little as 50-70L$. Shown is Moragh’s Crown by [Keystone], which I find signature of Nia/Aymee‘s intricate headpiece style. Hope everyone enjoys and basks in their own collection of goodies! Merry travels and safe paths!
