The Dance of Sparks

The dance of energy, the sparks between objects, the gravitation toward some, the repulse from others, so like synapses flaring to life.

stardust1csNo words, no definitions, no limitations. Reach out, pull back, slide, glide: dance. Feel. Live.

stardust3csAll the power you could ever need is in your fingertips: not out of reach, never out of reach, within you to find and discover, for you to free to flow.

stardust2csThe final frontier is not a distant future, imagined possibility. It is in you for you to face, explore and learn. For you to dance in.

The Psychic skin by Fallen Gods Inc. is currently on discount in We Love Roleplay. The petals that I used as modesty meteor pieces are a new main store release by Zibska.

Scales of Magma

Fire has always been both a blessing and a threat. It warms and it burns, it cooks meals and destroys buildings, it supports life and it steals it away. It’s no wonder all around the world we have imagined creatures that live within it, creatures that fire does not burn, creatures that swim in lava and always we have envisioned them fearsome.

lavadraco1csMost of the fire-associated creatures are also always if not downright evil, at least scary. Dragons, demons, djinni, perhaps only the mysterious phoenix manages to escape to the general good side.

lavadraco2csWho is to say what they really want, the fire creatures? Maybe even the salamander queen wants to simply bask in the heat like a common little lizard and wouldn’t spare one single thought on the nosy, noisy, flammable humans.

lavadraco3csNo better way to start a day than a warm dip in the lava, after all.

Both the Draco Magma skin by Fallen Gods Inc. and the Khor Feet by [europa] are available in the current round of We Love Role-play.

The Wiglet Piglets

Remember the Hatter Otters? They’re not the only criminal gang after headwear out there, you know. Meet the Wiglet Piglets! As the name implies, they hunt for wigs. No one truly understands why since they are clearly rather inept at adjusting them on their heads, what with the hooves and all, but who needs sense when you can have wigs?

wigletpiglets3bsNo one knows that the actual mastermind behind the wig-yoinking crime waves is an android mannequin, obviously compensating for her lack of legs by her lust for big wigs. The bigger the better! The piglets are simply a bacony smoke screen.

wigletpiglets2bsSince legs are rather a delicate subject around Miss Mannequin, the piglets are forced to sit in cups when presenting their latest trophies. Despite their complete misunderstanding on how wigs work or what they are even for, let alone how to adjust them to look as good as they would on humans, they seem to have grown fond of them.

wigletpiglets1bbsWhich of course makes Miss Mannequin very, very dubious…

I present my humblest apology to Zibska for giving her hairdo-pearls to the swine, literally, but the rhyme was irresistible! I also want to emphasize that yegads, that is not how the hairstyles look on humans. They are piglets. What do you expect? It’s a surprise they’re even somewhat in the correct area!

All the hairdos can be found in Zibska’s booth in Hair Fair, go see what kind of places your mind travels with them.

“Movies inspire me.” That is this year’s theme for the annual Hair Fair Photo Contest. Obviously I had to go for sci-fi, not only because it’s one of my favourite themes in general, but because crazy big sci-fi hairs in SL have always made me throw lindens at the designer in a blink of an eye.

hf13scifi1csThe contest ends June 28th, so there’s still time to figure out your favourite movie hairstyles and to have fun with pictures before that. Hair Fair itself begins July 13th, so there’s still a long time to wait. More details on the contest can be found here.

hf13scifi2bsAs for the blue sci-fi hairstyle itself, it’s Delirium by Alice Project. Alice has a big summer sale going on until June 27th and has just released Create Your Own packs, which allow you to mix-match hair colours from all her HUDs ever, but only five different copies of the hair. This is great if you normally use just few colour-combinations, but if you want to be able to change your hair colour often, the Infinity packs are still the way to go. Alice’s HUD system has saved my blogger-behind on countless days of ‘but I need this green hair in slightly darker hue and with golden highlights’, so I wanted to give kudos and praise where it’s due when speaking of upcoming Hair Fair.

The Night Flight

There’s a feeling of depth in the sky when it darkens. It reaches down, covers the world, becomes a more tangible part of it. Gone is the illusion of distance, of the various shades dancing on the edges of blue covering the heights above us: during the night sky is all around us.

feathers2bsThe night makes it all a part of the same in our mindscapes, closes all distances, brings everything within touch range. It hides the sharp lines of logic and reality from our eyes and lures out the other senses, invites imagination, becomes a sensation instead of a sight.

feathers1bsEnough so that if you look up to the calling depths around and above, you could almost believe that all it takes is letting go and diving upwards. For the sky is just another sea.

The feather hat and accompanying accessories by Zibska are available in The Gallery Gift Shop. The Concubine dress by [ SAKIDE ] can be found in World Goth Fair Port Seraphine. The skin by +Nuuna+ and makeup by Beautiful Freak can be purchased from World Goth Fair Cursed. Speaking of World Goth Fair, it will close 12 hours later than originally intended since it opened 12 hours late: you have time to goth-shop until noon SLT on June 1.

Get Your Goth On in Gothika!

Today is World Goth Day! This means that Club Gothika in World Goth Fair will be having a party of fourteen hours. Yes, fourteen. Seven DJs, seven different gothic themes, ridiculous amount of prizes with the winner takes it all principle and all around gothic entertainment.

wgdvampire1bsI’ll be hosting the Best in Vampire party at 2-4pm SLT for DJ Acerose Razor and decided I liked my hostess look so much that I’d blog it. The ruins behind me are where the party will occur, right in the middle of the WGF Cursed. The first shift starts at 10am SLT and the party eventually stops fourteen hours later at midnight SLT. You can see the DJ and theme schedule here.

Now what are you waiting for? Get your goth on and join us in Gothika!

The Malina dress by Pale Empress and the Khalida skin by +Nuuna+ are both available in World Goth Fair Cursed, the rest of the look is old favourites.

Back to Nature

Who knows where the evolution will take us? Who knows where it might have taken other civilizations elsewhere, merging and combining with their surroundings instead of taking control over them with tools.

alienplant1bsPerhaps there can be a symbiosis between humanoid life and flora, if nowhere else than in our imaginations. Sinking in limb-like roots that allow moving about, skin absorbing alien lights, humanoid hands kept for their usefulness, hearing becoming less vital when the senses are attuned to pollen and pheromones…

alienplant2bsI have always enjoyed such moments of trying to envision how life would look like through the eyes of something so alien that their priorities and needs in life differ completely from human. It gives perspective.

Almost all of the alien plant can be acquired from the new round of Genre that focuses on scifi. The skin by Jalwa is not actually green, I just played with windlights. The tentacle outfit by The Stringer Mausoleum went perfectly together with the mask and ear pieces by Spyralle, hair is by Analog Dog and the Biologic Evolution body tattoo by Fallen Gods Inc. completes the look.

Black and White

Sometimes they are both red. Every story has at least two sides to it and often one is painted black, the other white. Fairytales do this, many books and movies do this, presenting the side that the main character is not on in simplistic unlikeable hues. One can always recognize a more realistic story from having more than two sides, none of them truly evil or good, but with more developed agendas of their own.

blackandwhite1bsDespite all this we all enjoy a story with clear cut division. We were raised on fairytales, with heroes and villains, with arch-enemies worth an epic struggle. There are many such pairings in fantasy, but one of the more popular ones in recent years has been vampires and werewolves. Both traditionally evil, simply different viewpoints to their supernatural existences. Vampires tend to at least pretend to be urban, civilized, cultured and decadent. Werewolves are seen to represent nature, uncontrolled passions, rage and brutality.  Maybe that is why they have been so popular lately: a step away from black and white, both dancing in their own shades of grey, always ready to be covered in red.

blackandwhite2bsNo matter which side of the red you favor, both skins by Fallen Gods Inc. are currently available in the We Love Role-play event and you can locate the werewolf’s scale pauldrons by [HANDverk] in there as well. Both outfits are new releases by [ SAKIDE ] and both hairdos are by Alice Project, the vampire’s curls can be found in the current round of FaMESHed.

Moonlight in the Jungle

Surreal, vivid, alien. Both the horned female covered in intricate scales and the jungle surrounding her. Even the moonlight dancing on her bare skin seems out of this world, tinting her in camouflaging tones.

junglesnake4bsPerhaps the atmosphere in this world dyes the moonlight different, stronger. Perhaps the plants themselves soak it up and reflect it on the passing creatures. Whatever the reason, this night does not hide anything in the shadows, but reveals, basks and delights in a feast of colours.

junglesnake1bsFor those of you who are seduced by brilliant colour combinations, you can find these wondrous plants by Cerridwen’s Cauldron in Fantasy Faire at the moment, in Titan’s Hollow. The scaled, draco toned skins by Fallen Gods Inc. and the Erika hairstyle by Wasabi Pills can be found in Magnificat. The horns by [europa] are available in Ravenshard and the poses by c( Two Cats ) in Evensong Woods.

Forest Dragon

Not all dragons are roaring flames and burninating the countryside (sorry, I could not help myself). Nor are they dark menace made out of greed and tyranny. Some of them are protective, nourishing forces of nature.

forestdragon1bsForest dragons must prefer shapechanging for practical reasons, not much left of the forest if you stomp through them as a dragon. It is also easier to aid other creatures when they are not expecting you to snack on them any given moment.

forestdragon2bsIf you lack the ability to shapechange or help with magic, there is an excellent opportunity to do so with a much more mundane means: money. Isle of Wyrms is holding a spring festival that will benefit St. Tiggywinkes Animal Hospital in the UK. You can find many a wondrous thing on their marketplace, for example this Draco Laguna skin by Fallen Gods Inc. Half of the price will go to the charity while the festival is going on (skins available afterwards in the main store). The festival will end tomorrow (April 14th), so fly over to shop while you still can!
