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!

Darkness seeps.

||The last phase of recovery presented itself in the suspension of oneself within ones own mind. Day after day was the Red Witch becoming more of a solitary creature, with her loyalists and mighty word casting across the lands like a veiling storm. With dreams and visions reigning hell upon her subconscious self, the conscious reality always left her in a state of calculated thought. In being both a strategist and analyst, now was not the time to put down her guard in the least – for with a companion gone, it was the severing of some sources and only a small margin of profits. To depend upon another was not her way, so no harm done to finances . No, the harm was now to lash upon her flesh, with the gruesome hands of men seeking to grasp. In the base of Myrmidon, the Red Witch was to organize her thoughts and strive on to ensnare more souls to the underground. Her black market trade and occult ceremony were her glory now, and thus it would grow with dark intentions that even the Central Fire may not pry to see.||

So, it is known that I am a glutton for gorgeous accessories, especially that of headpieces that are both unique and intricate. Aymee/Nia of [Keystone] always exceeds my expectations with her jewelry pieces, especially with her latest release of ‘Zahidah’s Crown‘ that will be available for the next round of The Fantasy Collective this February 20th. It will be available in gold, gold/silver, silver, silver/onyx, and of course onyx (featured above). *Chronokit* has also released a comfortable, liquid mesh coat to further compliment their collection of outerwear, and with the chilly season and snow still here, I am more than thankful to be able to dress the part. In the meantime, hope you’re still enjoying the gacha craze, alongside the latest Genre ‘Fae’ Round! Merry shopping and trading and keep an eye out for the next round of the Fantasy Collective.

Why can’t I just trade a dream for a way, to peel back the shade behind the gray.

A frozen love.

I’ve sought my solace in this cold void;
Searched for promises, made solemn choices.
Left the embers in my core to kindle,
Hidden in a labyrinth temple.
Did you seek me out, my beloved?
The lands you trekked were many,
With hardships aplenty.
Very much like moths to the deadly flames we became.
Yet we embraced fire for the purest death –
Rising from ashes.
Shelter me when the world shows blight.
Covet my heart when it has no more might.
This flesh I have, I give to you.

– Fear.

With the festive weather change being experienced in both worlds, I definitely wanted to immerse into the seasons greetings with my beloved companion, ᴀᴏɪ “ᴘʀᴏᴘʜᴇᴛ” Yᴀᴛᴀɢᴀʀᴀsū (nightmare.rain).  These pictures have been a long time coming since I am not only a procrastinator, but a perfectionist for the best shot.

We’re leaving together.

No moons.

||The Red Witch gazed to a sky vacant of the three fond moons – such was a perfect darkness. It devoured the lands to all sides and thus dimmed senses less keen to her line of business work. The underground thrived in this zone of pitch black; where murmurs were shared alongside code. Those she worked alongside knew well of their trade and such made the coin run smooth and rich. And so in turn they were fond of her, ensuring they had a place in such a harsh world, and not only that, but a status to feed their palate for wealth. Nonetheless, it was these moonless nights that spiked her blood with adrenaline and gave the rush to mortal bones, knowing one day those chains would be broken.||

Courtesy of .Enfant Terrible. are these Vintage Girl accessories: fur shoulders and hat, and rings, available in beige and grey. These pieces and so much more will be in the upcoming Jewelry and Accessory Expo 2013, brought to you by Siren Productions, opening December 6th and running through the 21st. There is word of over 100 designers on two sims! So prepare yourselves for all the accessories that just make an outfit complete! While I love vintage in the real world, it was quite a challenge to incorporate such a style into even my ‘gorean evolved’ gear, but I tried! Last but not least, if you haven’t visited Shoetopia 2013 yet, be sure to do so before both sims close their doors November 30th @ 11:59PM SLT! Enjoy and in the meantime merry travels.

Winter praise.

||With the blanket of a freshly fallen snow, an icy beauty also represented a time of rest. But in the mystic eyes of The Red Witch it also stood as a time for change. As the seasons changed, time passed, and thus she grew and adapted all the more to the brutal world at her back. Even as the cold filled her lungs, it was refreshing and revitalized the senses to remain sharp. She’d bask in this time of year and took to heart all the lessons that would come to pass. This was to be a time to admire, as well as one for suffering, for while a peace came to some lands, she’d never settle.||

IR-30-Final5

While I am indeed belated, you still have time to visit the 30L Gacha Fling, located here – open until the 26th of November. My distractions of work and making the most of beta-testing kept me from drowning in the craze of this event, but you will definitely not be disappointed. I am very thankful to Jalilah of the re-branded .Enfant Terrible. for sharing her items that are featured in the gacha (pictured wings, crown, and necklace being ULTRA RARE). The representation of white really is rare for me to portray, as I prone to buy black, greys, and of course red attire and hair. If anything though, this quick styling was both elegant and fun, for I owned a lot more white or platinum items than I thought! So I do hope you enjoy, and be sure to hop on over to 30L Gacha Fling AND The Fantasy Collective (Theme for November: The Woodlands) located here. Shop and make merry all!

Can you die without pain?

On the hunt.

||The news of another uprising slithered through home and villages alike like whore with too much time on her hands. Many of her cargo ships had been marauded upon docking in a port city, or word simply vanished on the breeze. Such left a sour taste on the Red Witch’s palate, but it did not diminish her goal of acquisition. If thieves or the like were going to steal what she had already gone through the process of taking, then why not make it a game in determining who was better suited with the title. She rained news down upon those of loyal standing at her side like a freshly fallen rain – wishing to retrieve any identities or direction in which to surge her rage. Many goods were beyond rare, or contraband meant only for her eyes; so a personal game it became. Nonetheless, with her networking about the lands from sea to mountaintop and growing idly day by day, she’d have the news or heads upon her doorstep in no time. This hunt was going to be fun.||

Give her the sun.

||She dreamt that night had fallen eternally – gracing the lands with a death that ate slowly away at its victims. The green of her wilderness faded swiftly and in turn she felt herself crumbling away within. This was not the Dark Ages she wished for, nor hoped for – thus the powers at will had made a concept become real. And so, The Red Witch cried and mourned with great powerful sorrow – a pang of heart working to summon the return of the Central Fire. She woke with a start, wondering what turn of events this vision represented. Superstition rode heavily on her heart, so a mind worked in a wary state – well aware a change was at hand.||

IR-28-Final2

And just a couple days to go until The Fantasy Collective opens with its November round of The Woodlands. There is much elegance found in the earthy hues, coupled with the symbols of nature. And I have to say that ωolƒу DaraKaru (nitestar.albion), owner and creator of Cellar Door, captures the power of the wild in each and everyone one of her outfits. As presented in Avari, which comes with a high-waisted, though slimming skirt and shawl, and we cannot forget the accessory of these darling antlers. I definitely had too much fun adding accessories to complete ensemble and hope you are excited for this up and coming event! Remember all the designers have created exclusive items and indeed have busted their arses to deliver. Thank you all! So as you wait, merry travels!
