Twilight Delights

It’s strange to bid farewell to the cold lights and dark nights. Winter can be many things, but it is always familiar. It always encourages safety and comfort instead of whim and curiosity. It is also blissfully dark, the lights dancing within it more natural decor than a light source.

Then suddenly the nights are not dark anymore, there’s nowhere to hide, the light has invaded and won the world. Even the creatures of the night have their share of the soft illumination, brushing against the pale skins and dark strands of hair.

Cloaks and coats are removed, flower-scented air inhaled, warmth of the night experienced as the miracle that it is. There’s no greater magic than the one that returns life to us every spring.

No greater magic than the one that turns the dark starlit nights into warm haze of twilight delights and brings forth the sun that never sleeps, the Magic of Summer.

World Goth Fair has just opened. This year the event takes place only in Cursed (the event area up in the air). The gown by Pale Empress, cloak by @->~ISD and the poses by [Black Tulip] are all available in World Goth Fair. The skin by Fallen Gods Inc. is a rare in the gacha at Fantasy Gacha Carnival and the crown by lassitude & ennui is available at The Secret Affair.

The Other Side

Mirrors are doorways. We all know this, deep down. We know there’s something on the other side, watching back at us.

Is it a duplicate universe, an alternate, or completely different? Do its residents mirror us truly, or is it the separating surface that causes the reflection? If they could cross over — if we could cross over — would we meet in peace? Learn from each other, perhaps visit, explore, enjoy?

Or are they just the flicker in the corner of our eye, the fear of looking in the mirror at night, the unnerving certainty that the image would move when we don’t, the sight of the first crack on the surface forming… 

snowqueen2bsMirrors are doorways. We all know this, deep down, and so do they.

The gown by lassitude & ennui and the accessories by aisling are available in the current round of The Secret Affair. I have to add a little yey-note on there now being ‘xs busty’ sizes in lassitude & ennui’s mesh. The sizes that differ from the five standards is always a squee moment for me and worth a celebration.

Golden Gaze

It’s the golden eve, the heat of day having exhausted every living thing, the rays of sun slowly drawing out the very last pieces of focus and coherence, leaving behind only lazy lounging instinct, the primal indulgence of basking in the sun.

goldengaze1csLuscious, opulent, intoxicated from the warmth, the delightful incoherence affecting the vision until the whole world is gold. Gold and the scent of dreams.

The corset dress with all the pearl accessories by !deviousMind and the mask by Alchemy are both available in The Secret Affair. The boots by lassitude & ennui are currently available in We Love RP and the bed by Kalopsia in Genre. The hair by EMO-tions can be acquired from Hair Fair.
