Every year the new form takes her by surprise. She knows it’s coming, she can feel the change, the pull, the call, the sheer excitement of anticipation, but she never manages to guess what she will be once the magic in Selidor finishes its work. Some years she grows scales, some years she has a tail and some years she spreads wings to take to the suntouched skies. This is one of those years.
This year the wings are made for preening, not for flying. The skies did not call her up, instead all the flowers on the ground invited her to flourish next to them, to match the splendor. Every step stronger, every twirl more luxuriously delicate, Vanitas finds herself within the stunning sceneries, finds herself as a part of the whole, spreading her feathers not to fly, but to adorn the glory of magic even further.
The 9th Anniversary Festival of Fallen Gods Inc. has started with the Fortune Teller, hunt and rooftop market, soon to be followed with events and celebrations. Keep your eyes on the schedule!

The sun in Selidor is always warm. The eternal summer embraces all visitors, inviting them to rest on the soft grass and to watch the wonder that is summer sky.
The magic runs deep in the veins of the island, not a remnant of the incarnated gods, but a living, breathing, growing presence. Selidor has a spirit of its own.
It whispers words of beauty to each new deity taking shape in its arms, words of truth from the realm where magic flows as easily as air.
“Be all that you are, creature of elements, spirit of growth. Breathe in experiences, embrace changes and always, always face the sun.”
The Fallen Gods Inc. 8th Anniversary Festival week has officially started off! The roof top of the temple hosts an Eternal Market featuring wondrous things for sale (or as gifts), the Fortune Teller inside the temple is still offering free Infinity Sidera avatars for both men and women that find their match, and the week is full of events!

I did not even know this is an actual fruit, thought it was just a mesh-up name for the colour, but apparently it is! I had to do something silly for Miss Tangelo, so somehow that translated into an anything-but-realistic sailor costume. With a cutesy hat. The First and Last and Always necklace by House of Rain is available in the gachas at Unhinged Festival. It was just the right amount of sweet to go with the look. The Reema hairstyle is by Alice Project, who keeps saving my colours with the HUDs that allow exactly that: colour change. The sailor costume is by *BOOM* and if you are new to this outfit, be warned: the skirt is really really short from the back. Really. As for the surroundings, I wanted both a hint of orchards and sea, so I went to visit Selidor. Plenty of both there for silly sailors to pose with.

Apparently October is a contest month, here’s another that I sent a picture to: Fallen God and Goddess Election 2011. Since I had reached my costumes-creatures-mermaid folder in my marathon of inventory sorting, the decision was easy. I made a goldfish!
The resolution is different than my usual one, but the contest asked specifically for 3:2 ratio, so there it is. There was no mentioning if it had to be a straight snapshot in-world (if it had to, I’m automatically disqualified since I cropped in photoshop and sent a texture) nor did it say anything about if photoshopping otherwise was allowed or not. To play it safe I didn’t touch the picture beside cropping, although I had to take gazillion shots to get one where the square bug didn’t appear so I could manage to pull off a completely untouched picture.
The other pics are just for fun and blogging, so this one got some curves-lightening on it. I took all the pictures under water in Selidor. It wasn’t a requirement, but felt appropriate. I played around with windlight and water settings and had a blast. I was also greatly amused by a random passerby who wandered over and thought I was a part of the landscape, then startled when I changed the pose and apologized.
As for the look itself, the skin and the scales and goldfishy parts are all by Fallen Gods Inc., all the jewelry is by .( bewildebeest ). — pay extra attention to the fun lantern that I had to add to mimic deep sea fishies. It’s actually supposed to be sideways, but… fishy needs to see where she’s swimming! I added two separate head crown jewelry decoration things and a ring to the mix, too. So much ❤ Coyo. Hair by Alice Project (mesh), eyes by Repulse, tattoo layer lashes by Miamai and the poses in order are mine, Niqotine Poses and Di’s Opera.
PS. I just put the pose used in the first picture and the original companion shape for the Queen Bee on Marketplace as a freebie. The blog hit over 10.000 so I had to do something other than faint, after all. ❤
