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!

I shall light my own way.

||A deep sleep had oddly enough been beneficial to the Red Witch; granting a restoration to mind and spirit. With thoughts still a clinging craze however, she chose to shake away the haze – taking in the rise of Central Fire over wild lands.  The golden allure was astonishing as it brought an odd sense of the ethereal realm across land usually viewed as dank and decrepit. In standing in the threshold of home base and the outside, she felt in-between different worlds; a sly smile came upon lips, brightening the return of hue to mystic eyes. It came as a passing thought as to why she chose Myrmidon before other grounds, for it was a reminder of nature that had welcomed her into this world. With the distant sea glistening beyond a stretch of trees, such was the Red Witch’s focus now – the influence of the water ports. It was time for the Thassa to truly bless.||



Today my influence stems from new releases, as well as visiting the main locations of stores that I come by via an event. Firstly, is [The Plastik], brought to the grid by Aikea Rieko. Once introduced  years ago, I honestly became hooked to all that this store entailed. Visually was the sense of a fantasy world glorified via the build of main store and the creations within. Ranging from casual wear, formal wear,  and accessories, alongside her line of beautiful skins, eyes, and mystical markings – [The Plastik] certainly delivers to every audience; even men! Ontop of all of that, her textures are by far the most unique I’ve encountered from my ventures all about in-world; truly clothing you in beauty and unique vision. Next comes Peqe, delivered to us by Inex Hax. I will honestly say I must thank the first round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival for bringing this creator on my fashion radar. Whenever I am wanting to feel both classy and of high-caste, I find myself peering into the main store for more colors or styles of dress or skirt. Each cut of attire is detailed and slimming once you don them. On top of that, her palette of colours are true and vibrant to their namesake – never dull or off the path. Last but not least, is the hair store [elikatira], courtesy of Elikapeka Tiramasu. As most know, but if you do not, this store has undergone a rebirth of sorts. Elika chose to retire all of her old hair styles, and is now bringing the grid brand news ones one hairdo at a time. There is surely a style for everyone, as they range from short to mid-cuts, with lovely variety in how they frame or cover the face. Short and sweet, so you have the time to hop on over and decide for yourself! So merry shopping all.

Feet turning black, is this the path we must walk?

Slithering on.

||The North remained dominated by its bitter winter; a shroud leeching the very warmth from bones and blood with every breath. So with the drive to travel, the Red Witch ventured into territories and cities that had never glimpsed the sight of snow. The return of rich Central Fire to her flesh was both revitalizing and heavily needed. The lull of a port city kept her attention as it outlined the jungles, therefore bearing contraband of the reptilian sort. Much fondness fell upon the crates of serpents, of all varieties and levels of danger. The caretaker and merchant who specialized in their capture became yet another contact to her web of power – for what was another brood to her other hundreds.||


With the onset of new work, alongside the fact it is indeed the holiday season, I’ve definitely decided to keep it calm and easy going. But do not fret, I am still alive and well! While of the regal appeal, I decided to keep this look rather simple. Nia/Aymee Monk and mother-dearest of [Keystone] has released this dress from her clothing sub-brand by the name of Melodic. It is a slimming and romanesque piece, which includes a color changing HUD as well! Nonetheless you will never be disappointed with her work, whether it is of her debuted clothing line or well known accessories. So do enjoy the sights in the meantime! There is more to come.

The light of a dream.

Kiss these slay bells.

|| Bodies were strewn across the northern woods as the Red Witch trekked through various winter wonderlands. Snow had fallen heavily in the night, but now after experiencing an early morning raid, blood red added a brilliant display. She advanced with her victorious comrades, with crunching ice beneath boots adding ambiance of the crows that watched in scavenger’s delight. The outpost they had ransacked had been stationed there for some time now, however much to her surprise these culprits had been hoarding some of her goods for an unknown source. With area and contraband secured, the indepth investigation could be resumed.||

One who lies defeated, beneath the other’s hands.

A deal made.

||And once more, for there were sure to be many treks back and forth, did she step off the docks of Valhalla. The waterfalls still sang to veil the lands in a lulling ambiance, and most stood about tending to business of their own. Little did they know there was much in store for the future of their lives and home; carried on the shoulders of a leader, a witch, and a ronin. The Red Witch stood as an aloof power as always; fluid and flowing across the lands like a red phantom. Yet, she had discovered a streak of regalia from having mingled amongst the high castes; so angular chin rose and doted Dia with eyes that saw there here, then, and beyond. With the dark-haired woman approaching, the grape from many’a vines was accepted and tested with teeth and palate – quite sweet and firm indeed. With eyes leveled and mindset on the same wavelength, it was inevitable that the two of them would find their calling in the same fate. A coy smile curled the corners of her painted lips, with a soft nod shifting silken tresses. “I’ve broken many a molds in getting this far.. and there is still so much to do, and so many more paths to conquer and take. I am blessed to have the contacts and clients I have now, who provide either out of their intrigue or the right coin.” Thick lashes fluttered in studying Dia’s hand, only to have it met with one of her own; dainty yet calloused here, smooth there, and strong in grasp. “Let us make history then, dear Dia.”||

Your self fulfilling prophecy.


These tidings come.

“And these tidings take, the dearest of them all. You cannot shake this hand that breaks the brittlest of bone. Be it maker, be it friend, a cycle does not end. And though you wane from the course, fate sets you forth, into the dawn of a new day.”



So, over the past couple days, that known verse called “real life” has drained me of creativity, as well as time to delve into my storytelling. However, it did not halt my wanting to make a rather random boho look. While yes, Wednesdays are meant to be the spontaneous day, this look can cater to more of the wanderer or phantom of the GE world. I promise to have more in store for you all in the next episode. Just a heads up for all the shoppers out there, I came across a Saturday event known as The Rack! (be sure to catch the next round, since I am belated in posting this! Oi!), and another piece of news that THE LEGION PROJECT has opened with their Fall Spooktacular (Oct 11th-Oct 31st). Otherwise, do enjoy this simplistic ensemble and merry traveling!

Enigmatic regalia.

||The venture had been made to the Sardar once many a confirming birds had woken the Red Witch from slumber. Back up the Vosk did her current gather of mercs and traders go. Swift and with haste towards news that made her heart palpitate – both in anticipation and disbelief. Once the river split to become to Olni did the transition to caravan happen; making good time on the backs of kaiila. At the base of the mountains did they rendezvous – contract men greeting her with precious, stolen cargo. In suitable vessels had the white, viscous liquid been milked and spirited away. All of this had happened for a reason, considering the very Nest had been possibly compromised without consequence. Though filled to the brim with excitement and joy in obtaining Gur, the Red Witch was very much wary of what laid in wait.||



So, if you haven’t heard Collabor88 has reopened for their October round – Black Magic. So many styles and so many accessories to suit this time of the month, whether it is classy, dressy, casual, or just plain fun! Check it out for yourself! Otherwise, merry travels!
