"Some call them Forest Girls..."

"These were Forest Girls, sometimes called Panther Girls, who lived wild and free in the northern forests, outlaw women, sometimes enslaving men, when it pleased them to do so."
-Captive of Gor, Book 7, Page 118, John Norman

Above:  There is a place called Hrimgar where the Sa Ki Fori Panther Girls reign.  Be careful to stay on the path, should you venture through.  Straying aside could give warning of your approach, and you may find yourself ambushed!

Above:  This outfit comes in 3 color options and includes appliers for Lolas and Phat Azz mesh parts.  There are scripted and unscripted prim options, to make re-sizing easier.  Now is the time to grab it, though, as it's on sale for a limited time at the Fantasy Room for only 50L$ per color set!

Above:  Another bargain to be had TODAY ONLY is this amazing rose bush!  Super-low land impact, with options of a dirt base, potted plant, or without a base, and you can change the rose colors as well.  Oh, and it gets better!  You can actually pick the roses, and get a beautiful, vast array of colorful roses.  The detail is amazing, and the rose bush is only 50L$ today at DDD!

So much greatness at such a limited time!  ROMP closes on July 30th and won't open again until this winter, so now is the time to go and grab this "Back to Nature" pose (includes props) from Bounce This Poses.

Heath is wearing a brand new release from Dura, which is one of their unisex styles.  It's one of their first attempts at rigged mesh, and is hot!  Find it by going to their new hair section and looking for DBG52!

Is she a good girl?

One of the places that I learned about way back in 2010 when Whispering was born, was FabFree HQ.  I learned that there were a lot of designers out there willing to help new players get a decent av put together without having to spend a ton of L$.  If you want to play on a free account, without ever buying a thing, you can, and there are people who will help you!  Every once in a while, I like to pop back in there and see how things are being updated.  Freebies have come a long, long way, and the recent revamp of FabFree HQ reflects that as well.

Ladies, here are a couple of options you can find there, whether you've got a free account, need a quick and inexpensive update, or just love to get gifts!  Who doesn't love gifts?!

One thing that has been a drastic change in SL was the addition of mesh.  We see it everywhere, from buildings and landscape to hair, eyes and even bodies.  The hands, feet, breasts and hair you see in this post were not free.  The shoes are available in a discount room right now.  The skin, eyes and outfit were all found at FabFree HQ!

This skin from LOUX comes with appliers for Slink hands and feet, Lolas breasts, and Linc Phat Azz mesh parts.  While that's not the entire list of mesh parts that you might want appliers for, that's a really good start!  most gift skins don't have appliers at all, let alone for so many different options!  Tattoos are on the skin itself.  The eyes are from Mayfly, and come in a variety of shading options.

For those of us who are in love with our mesh feet and hands, !Nail Me! has put out nail appliers at FabFree HQ, too!  It's a HUD set with 8 color options in this style for both finger nails and toe nails.

The breakdown:

Skin:  LOUX - Bella - Natural - Tone LX20 (with appliers) - 0L$ at FabFree HQ
Shape:  Mine!
Eyes:  Mayfly - Deep Sky Eyes (Mesh and System) - Onyx - 0L$ at FabFree HQ
Hair:  Tableau Vivant - Longfall Hair - Dark Blonds (without mermaid headdress) - previous gacha, can be found at some gacha yard sales!
Hands:  Slink - AvEnhance Hands - Female - Relaxed
Feet:  Slink - AvEnhance Rigged High Feet - Female
Breasts:  Lolas - Delicq Rigged Mesh
Outfit:  Biasta - Good Girl - mesh skirt and mini top with appliers - 0L$ at FabFree HQ

Nails:  !Nail Me! - Fabulous - 0L$ at FabFree HQ

Trip to Venice

"We feel most alive when we are closest to death."
-Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

Dark side of New Orleans

It's not Thursday, so I can't call this "Throwback Thursday."  I can tell you I revisited an old haunt and popped in over at Godswar the 100 today!  I ran into a great friend of mine, Petra, and coerced her into posing for me for another post! (Insert much squee here!)

I asked Petra to show me her favorite spot on sim and this is where she took me.  She said if you stand in the middle of the road there, you "look one way, you see Oak Alley, the other, you see that amazing Virginia Oak tree."  Above is a shot of Oak Alley.

Being a sim admin is tough work.  Petra is one of those admin that gave up RP (which breaks my heart because she's such an amazing writer!) in order to handle the admin side of things, helping with power leveling and story telling.  Running a sim takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work!  Though she's not an actual player character in NOLA, she's maintaining an active presence and what a presence it is!

 If you had to imagine some spirit-form wandering about New Orleans, wouldn't this be one you'd rather run into than some from the movies?  It's got the perfect balance of smolder and shiver!

Above:  That amazing Virginia Oak Tree!  Simple things in the distance that look so benign.  But when you get a little closer and see what's really lurking in the darkness...

Above:  The hair is a HAIR FAIR freebie from EMO-tions!  Get it while it's hot!  It's called Medusa, and for good reason!

A beautiful place to ROMP

I was getting ready to do the shoot this morning for today's post and realized that, while I've shown you items from the ROMP fair, I haven't actually shown you the ROMP fair!  It's just too beautiful of a build for me not to show you, so here goes!  Those of you who have been there will probably recognize some of these spots.  Those of you that haven't been really, really need to go!

Above:  The theme of this event is elegant kink.  It's not dark BD/sm dungeon minded - it's meant to show the beautiful side of "kinky" sexuality.  While dungeons are certainly not frowned on, people who explore the sexual possibilities in life aren't necessarily dark, brooding, and full of doom and gloom.  No; they enjoy beauty, whimsy, fantasy.  This build encompassed it gracefully and beautifully, and held elegance and surprise around every corner.  There are birds and flowers, lanterns and fountains tucked into niches and corners all over.  Definitely worth a visit at least for the beautiful build, even if you have no L$ to spend!

Above:  I had originally intended to do a "demonic" version of Whisp today.  I opted for a tamer version instead, given the beautiful backdrop.  Eyes and makeup are from Plastik, one of my favorite go-tos for unique looks, especially with makeup and eyes.  They have a spot at ROMP, too, featuring an exclusive set of collars!

Above and Below:  It's like a secret, naughty garden at the ROMP fair, full of gorgeous and lush plants, arches, and other decorations.  Quite a bit naughty; but still beautiful, like this outfit from Tameless that includes appliers for top and bottom!

The windlight settings that were chosen for the fair were lovely enough I didn't have to change them for photo ops!  Not often that happens - Just another way that the builder put thought and effort into every detail!

Above:  Perfect for summer, these shoes from Glow Designs are airy, shimmery, and sexy.  They are made to go with Slink high feet, which makes them perfect for me!  Available at the Designer Circle in pink or blue until August 2nd!

Above:  Remember back before Slink came out with mesh hands?  We were all longing for prim fingernails until someone finally came up with these.  Sculpted fingernails with jewelry became a brief, but well-loved rage!  This particular set is called "Eye of Davy Jones" from Virtual Insanity, who now makes Slink nails with highly realistic details!  This was an old gift from the Macabre Hunt.  Check out VI for new, updated items!  There's something new there all the time!

The breakdown:

Skin:  Panda Punx Body Shop - Maddie - Lovestruck - Sunkissed - Cleavage (has appliers for everything!)
Shape:  Mine!
Hair:  Tameless - Evie - Naturals - Roots - Lolas - 3 color packs: Naturals with all 30 natural colors, Fades with 30 ombre and tipped colors, and Fantasy with 30 fantasy colors.  All colors come as both rooted and non-rooted.  Each color pack is $249.  The Mega Pack with all colors are $499L..
Eyes:  Plastik - Haunt Collection - Lyahra (system and mesh)
Breasts:  Lolas - Delicq Rigged Mesh breasts
Feet:  Slink - AvEnhance - Rigged High - Female
Piercings:  Tameless - Piercing 16 - $49L  The Naughty Nitch Fashion Fair
Outfit:  Tameless - Bold - Black - Tameless Outfits are priced and $149L and come with everything listed on the package art (Accessories and boots included, but not shown here).
Shoes:  Glow Designs - Straps Heels - Crystal Pink - at the Designer Circle
Nails/Rings:  Virtual Insanity - Eye of Davy Jones - old gift
Location:  ROMP fair! - Builder Hephaesteon Resident (Yes, the awesome SL photographer and blogger!), with the help of a drove of friends including Anke Hatchuk, Jax Lauria, and more!  You'll have to hit up Hephaesteon to get a more thorough listing, though most of his friends that I've met all tell me that it was him.  He's so humble!  And, straight from the Heph - "Oh wow, Whispering, thank you so much! I should note though that Kalia Firelyte was the builder of those beautiful sponsor shops we had - she custom whipped them out for us in just a handful of days."  Awesome shops, awesome of Kalia to do that!  And thank YOU, Hephaesteon!

Beach Baby

What's a summer without hitting the beach at least once?  I looked around for a place where I could enjoy the scenery and keep the bikini on, and ended up at Miami Beach SL!

The partially-shaved hair style seems to be the "in" thing all over the grid these days, as much as it is in the real world. This one is from Tameless. Tameless offers 3 color packs: Naturals with all 30 natural colors, Fades with 30 ombre and tipped colors, and Fantasy with 30 fantasy colors. All colors come as both rooted and non-rooted. Each color pack is $249. The Mega Pack with all colors are $499L.

Bikini is a new release from Al-Hanna.  You can find it on the Marketplace.  It comes in 5 sizes, with a HUD that offers 8 color options.

The breakdown:

Hair:  Tameless - Chanel - Fades - Roots - Lolas (also on Marketplace)
Bikini:  Al-Hanna - Bikini - Dots - Mesh
Jewelry:  Garage - Rura set (old group gift)
Sunglasses:  Elysium - Malene Sunglasses (old gift)

Hair so Fair

"Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself."
-Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985

Today, some portrait-style images to show you more styles available at the Hair Fair 2014

Above:  MaiOwn! has this great mesh hair called Lizz that comes in regular and "busty" sizes.  Rigged mesh, so not editable; but does have a texture HUD for options.  This is a more natural look, though their "wild" colors are pretty unique and awesome.  Love their teal combos, for example!

Above & Below:  I'm sure you all know by now about my love affair with Exile Hair.  The brand has been around for years, and constantly evolving.  I have to say that Kavar has taken the mesh revolution by the virtual horns and has tamed this beast into submission, crafting some of the most beautiful looks that I crave!  Whether perfectly coiffed, or blown in the breeze for that sultry-model look, he's got us covered! (also look really hot on men!)
