Dive Deeper

Dive deeper. It’s summer, it’s time to swim and play. Time to explore for the sake of exploration, to see new sights, try out new things, view visions never encountered before.


 Who says the water isn’t warm enough yet? The sunlight reaches all the way down during the summer nights and where it doesn’t reach, the magic of underwater growth lights the way.


Perhaps if you’re lucky enough in your watery visits you might pique an interest of someone ascending to visit you in return. Curiosity is a remarkable trait, goes both ways.


In the depths all the secrets are yours to find, all the mysteries within your reach. Dive deeper. It’s summer and anything can happen.

Just because I’ve wanted to make a mermaid post the whole spring and never had the time for it: now I did. Besides, frolicking in water is an inseparable part of summer. The only event item in the post is the hair & headdress of the first mermaid, they’re by ~Tableau Vivant~ and available in The Arcade.

The Appeal of Red Rum

I blame these Appeal boots by SAKIDE for the rest of this. I tend to like mine with heels, so the huge platform stompers that double as murder weapons required excessive attitude to go with them. Attitude and a world seen through red haze.

There had to be horns, obviously. Slightly monstrous horns by lassitude & ennui, to be precise. The haze makeup by Zibska — half-mask, half-shadows — brings out the red eyes just right. The Evion earrings look almost like a handy collection of needles worn for quick access.

The top and pants are from an earlier round of Sn@tch‘s lucky boards, Ivy keeps them well stocked and you can always fish up the latest outfit from the pool while waiting for your letter.

As for the sim, it’s always intriguing S.I.C., perfect for both slightly grungy urban or less shiny futuristic shots, depending where you go and how you pick your lights. In this case fitting for a search of a drink, what else?

Captain Escargot

In case you haven’t realized yet: it’s Steam time! Steam the Hunt is going on again and you can find the shop slurls, hints and pictures of prizes here. The pocket watch is a prize by *Amaranthus* and is of course normally at the waist, like it should be.

Captain Escargot is named after my favourite prize of this round,  Escargot-a-vapeur by Sextan Shepherd. It’s one of the many prizes in a mini hunt at Joy of Steampunk Museum. This particularly fancy snail-mobile has plenty of living areas inside and is perfect for fashionably eccentric steam captains. If you like steampunk, but don’t have time for the whole hunt, this spot is what I recommend. It’s fun to explore and you can get the hunt gifts while oggling about.

The Time Watcher’s Gear (goggles and pack) is by [ContraptioN] and the Knight of Darkness outfit & hat are by RokumeikaN. The latter is a prize from Twisted Hunt, I just liked them together. Both hunts last for the whole of September, so there’s still plenty of time to cam about.

Now all we have to do is wonder what does a time watcher see through those goggles, while travelling around on a steam snail-mobile…

Space Bubbles

What else do you call the hilarious vintage scifi space suit helmet that is like a goldfish bowl attached to your head? Except adorable, of course. Or amusing. Or in this case, Hutt Ball. …no, not really. But still, I had more fun taking pictures of trying to catch the damn thing than with it on.

The helmet and the outfit by Rotten Defiance are available in the CHIC part of Vintage Fair in many colour variations, each just 100L, which I thought was practically space robbery. So much fun to be had!

The skin by Glam Affair is in the current Collabor88, I just added an eye stripe makeup by Nuuna’s Skins to it for further cyber vibe. The Fraya hair by :esk-imo: is one of their new releases for the (already ended) Hair Fair, which means that they should now be in the main store for lagless shopping of amazing colour combinations.

The environment is one of the dream scenes by Garden of Dreams. The Space skybox has 219 prims, footprint of 40×40 and has animations and poses perfect for meditating, posing, floating, flying, snuggling or quite-more-than-snuggling in space. There’s also nifty Tai Chi possibilities available in the rocks!

52 Colours: Unmellow Yellow

This is one of those rare weeks where I struggled so much with both the look and the pictures that when everything finally clicked together for one picture, the others were so inferior in comparison that I cannot bare to have them accompany the good one. Just one picture for Miss Unmellow Yellow, who turned to be a sun fairy.

I found the colour matching fairy outfit from *Deviance* and the exotic alien plant is the latest group gift by the Booshies. This plant is scriptless and simply decorative, but apparently the real ones will grow food for the booshies to eat. Perfect for fairies to flitter around!

52 Colours: Raspberry Glace

Due to lazing about, sorting inventory and watching anime at the same time recently, Miss Raspberry Glace was… influenced, to say the least. All she needs is a catch phrase now.

I think she falls into the pretend-to-be-innocent villain group that seduces and fools the main protagonist. Depending on the series, she might of course even turn before the end. Don’t get me started on TV Tropes or we’ll be here all night.

Should there be a turning point, I think this is pretty much the scene for it: facing herself after falling into water in the middle of a Meaningful Battle. Speaking of the water and the scene, the pictures were taken in Tyrehl Byk’s Almost Flat Land in a LEA13 sim.

The look-defining hat by Discord Designs is actually a hair from the earlier Crazy Hair Hunt. The mini-qipao is by ~Sassy~ and especially the top lace matched the colour of the week perfectly.

Squid Punk

It almost sounds like a band-name, doesn’t it? This particular piece of mer-attitude rose from the sea determined to prove that you don’t have to make any sort of unpleasant deals to gain legs. Learn the spells yourself!

“It’s all very well and fine, floating about in the sea, summoning jellyfish to play with, but eventually it gets boring.” The summoning horn is by T R I D E N T Jewelry and you can gain the possession of it in Shadow’s Claw of Fantasy Faire. The squid shell that I absolutely had to get is by Panda Express and available in Siren’s Secret. Goody-two-fins mermaids can keep their tails!

“Even the fact that your perfect hair matches with your shell brings you no joy, shiny lights seem dull…” The hair is one of the RFL-items by Wasabi Pills, Hawk2 in crystal violet. Hawk2 and Hawk (without the braids in front) were released for Fantasy Faire, both the RFL crystal versions and the normal colours can be found  in The Tides.

“The shinies of the world above are much more intriguing!” Obviously when a creature of such attitude as the squid sorceress gains legs, she adorns them with kick-ass wanderlust-boots by Lassitude & Ennui. You can grab these purple ones from her RFL-vendor in Jungle Bungle. The summoning horn has been changed into a belt version to keep it easily available.

“And now this jungle is mine! No, I will not cackle. ‘s bad manners.”  The punksy Teeloh-hair is another new release by Wasabi Pills, also available in the Faire. Perfect for those kick-ass moods. The wisteria-skin by The Plastik is one of the exclusive elven ones she has in her booth in the Ruins of Nu Orne and I decorated it with an awesome freebie tattoo by Favourite Genes. You can find the gift in Siren’s Secret.

The squid sorceress swam about in the seas of Siren’s Secret, then rose to land to conquer the jungle of Nu Orne.

52 Colours: Bright Turquoise

Diving into bright, strong, almost surreal colours after last week was practically a relief. I found a fitting skin and it immediately called for a lekku and so, tadah: Miss Bright Turquoise is a twi’lek adventuress!

This astonishingly bright turquoise matching skin is an oldie by .{Rue}., still easily yoinkable from the Marketplace. The lekku is by [ Infamous ] and I tinted it to the rgb values of bright turquoise. Playing around with it made me ponder why no one has made a mesh lekku yet. You’d think there would be a market.

I took the twi’lek on an adventure in the Doomed Ship. I definitely have to go and explore more there, I was paying more attention to how things looked like than what was happening otherwise.

The facial markings are a mix of Nuuna’s Skins and The Plastik with a whole body tattoo by Ngel Vella added to the mix. The adventuring outfit is a combination of PixelDolls and Bare Rose and the gorgeous cyber-arms are by Amorous. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to use them and Miss Bright Turquoise was just the right alien to show them off.

52 Colours: Royal Purple

With a name like this it was obvious Miss Royal Purple had to be a queen. Evil sorceress queen, duh. Are there any other kind?

Of course I went to my Evie’s Closet folder for this. Luxuriously rich colours and all the style a fantasy queen could possibly want. Since I was lacking in crowns I went for a big hair instead. This one is an old Crazy Hair Hunt gift by Curious Kitties. Speaking of, a new round has just started!

I did find a cute crown by Violet Voltaire from my inventory! Too small for evil queens to wear, but just perfect to tempt mortals with. What would you give for it, pretty one?

Obviously I had to go all the way purple, so even the skin by Heartsick, lipstick by M.O.C.K. Cosmetics and the eyes and the mask tattoo by The Plastik are all purple as well. I tried to find a golden throne for her, but failed. In the end I took her to Athan because I knew I could trust in Alia’s elven builds to have the right vibe. And so they did~

52 Colours: Tea Green

The busy life of Miss Tea Green! There’s all the flittering to do and bird tea parties to arrange and decorative leaf arrangements and flower therapy and and… the work of a fairy is never done!

Every time I transform into a petite I think that I should really do this more often. Such fun! Arranging scenes of appropriate size could keep me entertained for hours. Oh wait, it did! Miss Tea Green was brought to life by the hands of Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods Inc., she’s one of his crystal petite line.

I went on a fairy shopping trip to the Petite Avatar Kingdom where you can find all the things a petite could possibly want from hair to make-up and from mounts to furniture! I grabbed the outfit by Bare Rose and hilarious sky-tickle hair by Fantavatar from there to complete the look. Oh, and psst: #6 of the Great SL Photo Hunt,  you dancing in a field of flowers and butterflies: check!

Having magic makes pouring tea so much easier! Mr. and Mrs. Flitwing are of course from Happy Mood. The stump by Sway is from Home and Garden Market Hunt. The tray and associated noms are by Poche and the tea pot is by Love Soul. I set up the tea party in Ely’s home since she has fitting sim-prettifying magic galore~
