130 ~ A Summer ROMP

It's here, it's here, it's here!  I get so excited when I know ROMP is upcoming, and I know I drive my friends crazy with it!  Well, IT'S HERE!  And there are only a few days left!  If you haven't been yet, you have to go check it out because there are SO MANY great designers that you'll want to buy all the things!  Get there before the 17th!

With everything from sexy heels to shibari rigging, you can find all your kink needs filled at ROMP!  I had a really tough time deciding what to put in this post, and if I can get some better shots of the other items soon, I'll have another post coming to show you even more of what's available.  I've been having some serious PC issues lately, hence the inactivity for ugh... months!  Enough about me, though, let's talk about ROMP!

I'm so excited that one of my favorite SL designers, Kalia Firelyte, has branched off into her own brand.  While I still love Dysfunctional Designs (Anke is amazeballs), Kalia is doing some really amazing work with her new brand, Jian.  Here, you can see she's even gotten into more modern and kink furniture.  The bedding set shown here comes in PG or Adult, and you can change the poses and textures with a touch.  The lamps have on and off modes, too, which comes in really handy when you tend to take overly-dark images like I do. 

I also need to just put it out there that yes, I have finally jumped on the bandwagon, and got myself a Maitreya body.  I did a major avi overhaul when I was going to start RP with the Sa Di Lina Panthers; but recently have found myself with less and less time in SL, and have had to abandon the RP.  Too bad, too, because those ladies are awesome!

The harness and pasties from Oaken work really well with the mesh body, I might add, as do the cuffs and collar shown here.  The pose even works well with or without the mesh body, without any major stick-through that you sometimes get.  The pose shown here and in the first image are both from POSEOLOGY, in their "Me Time" series.

The dresser also has animations in it, which I didn't try with me being alone for this shoot.  You can change the color of the laundry basket (left), the dresser itself, and the accessories, as well as turn the candles on/off by touch.  The framed print that you can see on the left, leaned against the mirror, is a gift from Fallen Gods.  Alia drew this!  I'm super impressed that not only is it skins - Fallen Gods has teamed with Faida to create some remarkable collabs, and now artwork too?  I'm in awe.  The beads on the dresser are from SBoT (Sacred Band of Thebes) and come in 5 colors, OR you can grab the rainbow version for only 1L$ and get a fun launcher, too!  Yes, that's right!  Troll your friends by shooting anal beads at them!  (Please don't go trolling sims, though.  That's not okay.)

The cuff shown here (kind of hard to see with me taking overly-dark pictures :x) is from C L A Vv.  I've got Whispering in the black/gold version; but there are several to choose from and a matching ring that can be worn with it.  I didn't wear it because it looks to be made more for a man, and with the Maitreya body, Whispering doesn't have man-hands!  They're daintier, and more feminine, which generally is a good thing.

The Breakdown:


Bed, Nightstands, Dresser:  Jian - Saxton - Adult bed, adult dresser, nightstand for him, nightstand for her - at ROMP event
Naughty Print:  Alia Baroque - Pleasure Leash gift print - GIFT at ROMP event
Beads:   SBoT - ONLY AT ROMP event!

Post 129 ~ Gorean Gacha and ROMP!

April is FULL of events, which are FULL of goodies!  If you role play in Gorean, fantasy or medieval genres, or just like to dress up, you are going to find some awesome items out there on sale!

If you're doing ROMP monthly shopping, you'll need to get out there today or tomorrow to get your goods!  There are a ton of items that were absolutely amazing, but I could only fit so many things in this one post!

There is a little more time to shop at the Gorean Gacha, though, which will be open until the 27th of April and has a lot of great designers.

I got all dressed up and dropped into Brundisium to take some pictures, where I was quickly surrounded by several very large, very strong, very intimidating warriors!  I was able to set up this pose scene from Come Soon Poses (the entire background is included as props, including the "sleen" that you see trying to come eat my face!) and Kuruk was kind enough to jump in and play my hero.  Doesn't he make it look natural?

Of course, a southern Kajira is nothing if she's not pleasing to the eyes and able to serve her Master well.  I wore -zero- mesh attachments for this look.  No mesh hands, no mesh feet, no mesh breasts or body.  Just the traditional SL body with a skin and shape from Favourite Genes, who came out of retirement just for the Gorean Gacha event.  The skin is 50L$ per play, with a surprise ultra-rare in there that is the entire set of skins and shape.  Each skin also includes the Lolas applier.  You can also see (faintly) the all-over moles body mark tattoo layer that is part of a discount set that you can pick up for 75L$.

The camisk from PEQE is beautiful and simple, and perfect for the south.  It comes in multiple colors, black being the Ultrarare.  The beautiful copper jewelry collection is from Keystone at the Gorean Gacha, and though you only get a glimpse of it here, it includes an intricately crafted belt.  What made my day, though, was being able to get the simply beautiful collar from Cae (for ROMP) to match the jewelry metals with the simple click of a HUD button.

The Breakdown:

on Kuruk:

[The Forge] Gorged Pauldrons,  (Black) Fur
:Enigma: Cholia Fur Limited M
[The Forge] Asgar Bracer UltraRare (Black)
AoD Blindfold Eyepatch Black
[The Forge] Arwen's Belt, (Black)

Special thanks to Brundisium Gorean RP sim and Kuruk Souji (jokekiller) for help with this shoot!

Post 127 ~ The dollhouse in the attic

The problem with the ROMP event, if there is one, is that I find myself wanting to buy ALL THE THINGS!  Of course, I don't have room for all the things, so I send friends to buy the things I can't fit into my little corner of the grid, and then I get to see great pieces and designs when I visit with them!  Time is running out, though, so if you want to grab up the great pieces you see here, you'll need to get on over to ROMP: Fresh! and get yours NOW!

Who knew there would be such a lovely doll in the display box, hidden away in the attic of this cabin in the woods?  Okay, so it's not an attic; it's the loft.  It's still a really sassy, sexy way to keep your doll on display!

Materials, how I love thee!  I was so excited to see 22769 ~ [bauwerk] on the creator list.  I can't get enough of their work.  They did not disappoint, with the detailed bedroom pieces (complete set not shown - visit Fresh! to see the other items in the set!) in leather, fur and alligator hide.  No virtual animals were harmed in the making of these items.  

The bookends you see here, holding up the literary works devoted to kink, are also available as statues, and custom ones were made for the event itself.  Yet another reason to love Lost Junction!

Of course, the girls have to have fun!  This leash holder, which I love, is delightfully unisex, and the tray of toys comes with a male or female version!  Cerberus Xing and Plethora, you know what a girl wants!

Mina came through with a design for the men and a design for the women for this round of ROMP, and the one for the ladies is a sexy, let's-get-naughty (or maybe, we-just-got-naughty) look!  I love the way it's tousled.  I'm not normally a gold kind of gal, but there were so many things in this hue that I had to pair them all up for this scene.  The necklace (and tattoo!) are from .things. and the dress is from PEQE.

The breakdown:

Scarlet Creative Country Keep - Collabor88
22769 ~ [bauwerk] - Black Leather Bed, Black Tied Leather Bench, Alligator Skin Nightstands, Decadence Leather Chair @ ROMP

126 ~ Let's not keep Mistress waiting

January ROMP has come to an end; but February round is soon upon us, with the event being set up as you read this!  I'm so excited to see it, not only because of the amazing designers that will be displaying items there, and what they have; but because I absolutely love the layouts that the team comes up with.

In my anticipation of things to come, I'm getting into the spirit of kink with this post... WAITING... for the next round of ROMP to begin!

Artisan Fantasy featured this Mission set for ROMP January, and still has it available in store.  That is part of the beauty of ROMP monthly, is that while you can nab these beautiful items at a discount during ROMP weekend, you can still find them in-store after, if you missed it.  You just have to pay full price.  Discounted or not, this set is well worth it.  Exquisite details, multiple poses, AND you can use it for a variety of genres.  If you're looking for something Gorean, you can use it.  If you're looking for something rustic but modern, you can use it.  RP or not, it's perfect.  

Yes, this is the same corset in both pictures.  Amazing what a little lighting change can do!  The collar is a former ROMP item as well, from ANE.  You can wear it with the rings or with the ring/strap combo.  I love that they allowed for a strap leash as an option here.  The over-knee boots are a new release from Al-Hanna, with a 20 color HUD for only 90L$.  Lovely stockings as well, yes?  Nope!  Tattoos!  Yay for tattoos!  The lower body tats shown here are from Things and come with appliers for all kinds of mesh bodies and attachments.  Details below in the breakdown.  
The breakdown:

Furniture:  Artisan Fantasy - Mission Armchair and Ottoman - Weathered

Hair:  Tableau Vivant - Hatsuhi - New Year's Group Gift (no group fee)
Skin:  Glam Affair - Aria - Asia - Combo 3
Shape:  Mine
Collar:  ANE - Kinky Collar Necklace with Straps
Corset:  Anarchy Ink - Goth Pinched Corset - with texture HUD
Boots:  Al-Hanna - Pretty Mesh Boots with color HUD in standard sizes
Tattoos:  Things - [Appius Sleeves - Fresh] (top) and [Spectrum - Fresh (bottom) - includes appliers for Belleza, Slink, TMP, Ghetto Booty and Phat Azz - out now at the Fantasy Collective event

125 ~ The Throne Room

~It's a simple room, sparsely furnished.  Only the gleam of candle light on a bronze rose on the table gives any kind of hint that this is a room used for anything other than sitting.  Stepping into the room, though, and walking to that table to inspect the rose shows it's more than just a pretty bauble.  It's a plug.  The door slides shut, leaving her there in her coat and heels, to wait.  Soon enough, a waif of a woman enters, silent, efficient, taking her coat and clicking the manacles into place about wrists and ankles.  A flit of dark eyes to blue, a gesture to the simple chair, then she is left bound to await the Master.~

ROMP January is here!  With a limited number of designers, it is surprisingly amazing, and I look forward to each round.  Turns out that the limited numbers is due in large part to the demand for high quality items - and they do not disappoint!

The throne from DDD is so intricate, with amazing texture work as always.  And, as usual, extremely low land impact.  They're specialists at giving more bang for the buck.  This throne has a plethora of poses, including some props, and rings in at only 2 land impact!

Artisan Fantasy has been doing rustically beautiful pieces for a long time now, so I always look forward to seeing what they come up with.  This hammered bronze lamp and table are part of their Mission set.  The lamp comes in large or small.  2LI for the table, and 2 for the lamp as well.  The plug you see here, in bronze, is one of many color options from [Haste] for this round of ROMP.  And, in a very thoughtful gesture, they've given options where you can choose to wear the plug, or put out a low land impact version for decor!

The dress shown here is a less cliche option for those with a little fantasy about wearing a trench coat and showing up to seduce someone... with little to nothing else under it!  It comes in a variety of color/print options.  I tend to prefer something more subtle most of the time, punched up with bright accessories.  In the background, you can sort of catch a glimpse of more of the Mission set from AF.

The manacles are part of the chair that Whisp is sitting in for this shoot.  You can click the chair to change the poses, or to get the manacle props.  There are single sits as well as interactive naughty couple poses.  The tattoo is new from .Things. and can be found out at the Big Show!

Roawenwood has come a long way over the years, as you can see by this mesh chair they've put out.  It's so simple, low impact, but once you sit in it you will be delightfully amazed by the options in it.

ECRU has an MM board in store that offers a unique color of special items.  Recently, they had this set of shoes in a variety of colors out for 60L$ weekends, and put this color (one of my favorites!) in the MM board.  I knew I had to get over there because I was positive it would lock down, and voila!  Sparkly shoes!  They're made for Slink high feet, and can be found in store for sale if you've missed out on the MM.

I love this collar.  I love the color HUD options, I love the simplicity of it, I love the design.  I've seen so many collars that are garish or don't translate well from one genre to the next.  This is perfection.  So, so glad that Cae came up with this!  Comes in 2 options - OpenCollar and accessory.  And, might I mention, the customer service for Cae is AMAZING.  Super fast at responding to questions and nipping problems in the bud!  I seriously can't rave about them enough!

124 ~ Warm Holidays

It's been a long time since I was able to enjoy Steampunk in SL.  Though it's not a regular RP genre for me, there have been times I've really enjoyed it.  Everything from music, like Steampunk Giraffe, to movies and clothing, can really be impressive.  And maybe, with the studies into creating a habitat in the Venusian atmosphere, it's not too far-off of a reality for us.

I was thrilled when I unpacked this fireplace from Ravenghost.  It's so well-detailed, with options for steam, smoke, fire, sounds, size and animations.  It's 100% original, and it's for a good cause!  If you haven't heard of Twisted Krissmus, let me share with you some awesome information!  It's a grid-wide event where all of the high-quality items (like this fireplace!) are brand-new, original, transferable for gifting, and 100L$ or less!  If you're trying to find something amazing for your family or friends, and are on a budget, this could work perfectly for you!  If you go to get this awesome fireplace and want to see who else is participating, you can click on the kiosk to get the list.  Or, you can check out their website for more info!

Another amazing event right now is the Gothmas by Gaslight event, open until January 3rd.  This is another production from Cursed Events, with 65 designers and sponsors spread out over 2 sims.  This outfit is a GxG release from Immateria.  The system layers, as well as the mesh jacket, are part of the set.  The shoes are an older item I've had in inventory for a while, from Heartsick in an old Black Event.

The dials on this fireplace really do work!  And you can see in these images the animations that have you warming your hands by the fire.  I love the texture work on this, and the creative take on a steampunk fireplace!

The breakdown:

Hair:  Analog Dog - ffwd - blonde
Skin:  Glam Affair - Aria - Asia - Combo 3
Shape:  Mine!
Outfit:  Immateria - Raith - for Gothmas by Gaslight event
Shoes:  Heartsick - Mischief Boots - Black/Gray
