Side Quest: Vocaloid Bizarre

[[Music shall always hold a special place at the core of soul. And song shall be the words to weave the dreams of the entities which reside there. While some possess no rhythm, the appreciation of artists remains. In a new age, this digital age, the virtual fervor has evolved our imagination in bringing music into this world. New expressions and representations of the artform have arisen, bringing both inspiration and further of evolution. While this change continues to occur, may we never forsake the origins of the sound and where it all began.]]

IR-62-Final2

As promised is a post that I am sure some have looked forward to. This side quest dabbles into the realm of Vocaloid, a program I hope to soon own and collaborate with several other artists. If you consider yourself well-rounded in the world and history of music, definitely allow yourself to research and expand your knowledge base if you haven’t (for the voice lyric and melody packages HAVE expanded past just Japanese voices~). Within the grid of SL a new sales event has begun by the name of KRAVE INC., brought to us by Delirium Style and Sanctuary Inc. To get everything in motion this April, Krave Inc. Presents Freestyle – Urban Fashion Fair. A store which I adore and love, [geek.] is participating with super adorable and quirky one of a kind items! As featured is the Never Bored Belt (available in Pink, Red, Gold, Green, Purple, Teal, White, and Black), as well as Kraving the Rainbow Necklace Gacha (available in Common: Evil, Girly, Mystical, Rasta, Skit-tels, Sky, Team, Unicorns & Rare: Classic, Evil, Girly, Mystical, Sky). Scope out these items and more as you explore this up and coming event. So, what really tied this entire outfit together were of course Remarkable Oblivion’s RAB 8 and Cat-A-Clysm Headphones, available at this month’s FaMESHed (running from the 1st-27th of each month). Accessories truly are the key in bringing out the best in any ensemble, so thank you all for making all these amazing creations that I can call my own! Be sure to not miss round 6 of The Big Show, where The Scarlett Letter will be releasing the Ridin’ Dirty skirt; available in a bunched and non-bunched version for all the stylish naughty-makers. Merry shopping all!

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.||

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!

Blow me away.

Let the night rebel.

||The raid had begun with a wave of fires that been masterfully plotted and mapped out through a portion of the Northern Woods. It was towards the Sardar Mountains that the flames erupted in a flourish of colour to ward off the evening fall. It was loyalists of the Red Witch that surged in caravans, with thalarion, or on their own two feet towards quiet little city of Harfax. There was trusted word that visitors rested there, thinking they hid from her eyes or grasp – but alas, such was the surge of bodies to encircle, if not ransack in surprise. Eager flames had trekked to the edge of the Woods of Clearchus, presenting an intimidating wall and aftermath of the trail the Red Witch had taken. A battle did indeed break out, with the song of clashing swords and tense bowstrings carrying across the air to join the choir of fire. A precious cargo was to be cut from chests as she tended to the objective personally. Such a distraction with a swarm of bodies had been necessary, though she had requested that the number of actual casualties be kept to a minimum – for the innocents need not suffer for their housing of the unknown. And such was a rare show of her forgiveness; as it coincided with blood on her hands.||

IR-55-Final3

As promised, I bring forth lovelies courtesy of Whore Couture Fair 3, The Arcade, and We ❤ Roleplay!! Inside every woman, there is indeed a carnal fantasy wishing to slither out and make a debut – however, mine seems to bear an exotic sense of grunge. As of late I had been very fixated on staying up to date on *Milk*, with their new releases of hair, and while dreads have never been my style in the least, High End Hippy really opened my eyes. I have noticed thus far that *Milk*‘s hairs are quite voluminous, which I love and adore, and come in a variety of cuts, updoes, and styles thus far. Next is a new store I’ve come across thanks to WCF3 by the name of D-Style. The shown top is their creation that includes a texture HUD with 10 colours and six decals to choose from. Following up next from Whore Couture, are the Destroy Leggins Noir from PANIK, which present a rough edge with fishnet to compliment the grunge look I wanted to set off. This is another store that is new to my fashion radar, however, this is not the first coming across them, as they’ve been present at Project Limited and The Big Show. I’ve also changed up my skin again, thanks to The Arcade. Beautiful -Glam Affair- is sure to break the pockets of many in regards to their smooth and new refreshing face of Aria, in Asia tone. If you are curious to what all the commons and rares are, simply click here – however, in all honesty, ALL the makeups are gorgeous. Last, but certainly not least, are my love for boots, and Jada of [geek.] has mixed both cute and rough into her new releases of Gonna Take An Arrow To My Boots and Took An Arrow To My Boots (shown), available at this months round of We ❤ Roleplay! Snag them in Girly, Snow, Abyss (shown), Bruised, Creamed, Dirty, Imperial Red, or Sunny today as the event is NOW open to the public! If anything, have fun, style it up and merry roleplaying!

Red walls, it’s revolution.

I’ve put a spell on you.

||A few visitors had come a’knockin’ on the Red Witch’s door: stained by blood varnish and placed in the shadow of her Adrastus family banner. Some had brought forth bundles of herbs or random tomes they either wanted translated or to offer up in trade for her services. They murmured of ‘fire’ and ‘eyes’,  wanting to discuss more of what they had heard across cities and amongst traveling caravans. She assured them she was no con-artist, nor did take the occult and the power it could bring lightly. Surely steel ruled the lands of the surface, but below and beyond another realm reigned – her source of strength. With secrecy maintained, any guests were led into the depths of her home within the wild of Myrmidon. Quite the hospitable hostess, their attention was maintained and palates kept sated with varying teas or brews. However, such was a lesson of perception, if not trust. And to not fall under the enthrallment of the red that crowned her head, or even the words that lulled from accented tongue. Some minds were too eager, if not greedy, as was read of their auras once they came upon her doorstep. Thus, living beings came in, bodies hauled out. Such was the price for her aid, when you came to deceive.||
