Don't Fear the Reaper


No matter how scary they may seem, those big, tough guys are terrified of a good woman! Look him in the eye and call his bluff! If he isn't bluffing, LEAVE! 
You deserve better!


If darker makes you feel stronger, then by all means go dark! Showing another color combo that you might prefer.

What lies Beyond the Veil?


William here. I've taken over Aznana's blog to remind you know that Twisted Hunt Fall for 2021 is underway and that you may find many cubes with men's and unisex gifts. 

The Merchants who do Twisted are a dedicated bunch. When it comes to Twisted Hunts they are dedicated to making it as difficult as possible to find those cubes. Man up and give it a go! If it doesn't kill you, it may make you stronger. 

There are lots of Beyond the Veil prizes that will make you the most awesome wraith in the cemetery. Halloween is just around the corner, so what are you waiting for? 

HERE is the starting point.

  • One piece suit by **DSO** in standard sizes 
  • Garden of Hedone Love Eternal Coffin with "A" poses, lots of fog and candles 
  • Grey's Mind Maze Shroomies with fantasy grass and Twisted cubes * 
  • Multifarious Decoy Cube Fidget * for those times when you really want to get your hand on one of the cubes

Hair ~ Fabia Paul
Head & Body ~ Altamura "Max" Fullbody with "Tommy" shape
Skin ~ 7 Deadly S{k}ins Reid
Outfit ~ **DSO** Clyde (shoes not included)*

Persephone



The traditional story is that Hades saw the beautiful maiden, Persephone, playing in a meadow and came roaring out of Hell to carry her away. Her mother, Demeter, mourned her absence and caused everything in the natural world to die. The starving world appealed to Zeus to mediate and they worked out a deal that allowed Persephone to return to the upper world for six months every year. In the fall when Persephone returns to Hades' kingdom Demeter slips into depression and the northern hemisphere enters autumn and winter.


I think Persephone actually looks forward to returning to Hades each fall. Who wouldn't prefer a lover willing to go though hell for you to being treated as a child by an overprotective mother? 

Here she is dressed in her best for their reunion - sexy lingerie, flowered mantle, headdress and earrings, lots of jewels and pearls. 
She also likes her Rose Thorn Tail a lot, but only gets to wear the horns and tail when she's home in the Underworld. 

Nice of two of my sponsors to make their items so beautiful that a young goddess can really shine when wearing them. (Nice of Materials and Advanced Lighting, too!)

  • Look amazing in this Eternal Bloom Horns & Mantle Set * from Aii & Ego. It comes with color huds to personalize everything and is available in sizes to fit both male and female bodies as well as a pair of non-flowered horns and an unrigged set that will give you lots of leeway on fitting non-standard body shapes
  • Rose Thorn Tail *, also from Aii & Ego, is Bento and BOM, so will match your BOM skin perfectly as well as having a full range of accent colors and tattoos in the hud. 
  • Vaygah Lingerie Set ** from [QE] Designs is beautifully textured with 10 colors in the hud. Just the thing to bring out the devil in your SO! You'll find this set at a special discounted price in the [QE] Marketplace Store

T'was the Night Before Twisted...


Are you ready for a round of Twisted? The theme for this 13th year of fall madness is Beyond the Veil and there will be magic, mystery and spooky surprises along the way.

  • Your journey begins HERE. Make your way between the displays of pictures, awards and memorabilia from former Twisted Hunts 
  • Touch the twisting black and lilac cube above the altar for your official start packet. You can't miss it. There are huge pulsing arrows pointing the way! 
  • Don't expect it to be this easy to find any of the other cubes on this hunt. The rest will be fiendishly hidden, often in plain sight 


Twisted has a well-earned reputation for being the most difficult hunt on the grid. There will be challenges and decoy cubes along the way. There will also be side hunts and a lot of crazy fun!

Throw a coin to your Mercenary Magick User



Anyone who knows me well knows that I live in the fantasy realms and that I am an elven magick user when not taking blog pictures. I literally gasped when I saw this look from [QE] Designs! 

  • This is the prefect look for exploring, vanquishing enemies, sailing the Seven Seas, hatching dragons (or schemes), or for just hanging out around the tavern 
  • The outfit has separate Top, Pants and Boots. The hud includes 4 subtle color variations on the pants and lacings. I went with basic black though there is a red, blue and lilac as well. Metals are well done and the boots and belts are nice and shiny whether you have advanced lighting enabled or not
  • Find it @ the [QE] booth in the Enchanted Valley of Plenty

Hair ~ No.Match No_Top
Head ~ Catwa HDPRO Queen1.4
Body ~ Maitreya Lara 5.3
Skin ~ 7 Deadly S{k}ins Kirby. Eye makeup from Petrichor
Outfit ~ [QE] Designs Yessica Top, Pants & Boots *

Butterfly Dreams


Butterflies go fluttering by
On colored wings that catch the eye.
On wings of orange, and silvery blue,
On wings of golden yellow, too.
If winter brings the cold and snow,
To warmer climates, off they go!
Returning home the following spring,
Beautiful butterflies on the wing!
~Anonymous

You can find the newest release from Aii & Ego at The Crystal Heart. The set includes Magical Butterflies * in 2 sizes in either Animesh or Bento. Having the butterfly auras available in both formats allows you to add more to your avatar, since there is a limit to the number of Animesh items one can wear at the same time.


The butterflies move around your body in a very realistic manner. Two of the Animesh ones land on your shoulders and hover there for a short time before flying off again. The hand-attached butterfly is animated to flutter around your body and land briefly on your outstretched hand. There are 3 static butterflies that you can attach or rez wherever you wish.  I'm wearing Static v1 attached to the top of my head in several of these pictures.

The hud includes 20 colors and includes options to adjust transparency, alphas, luminosity, color, etc. I'm showing 3 of the presets. Demos @ Aii & Ego Main Store or TCH.
 
  • My dress can be found upstairs on the north wall of the [QE] Designs Main Store. You get to browse all of the fun looks and the Home D├ęcor available from [QE] on your way to the vendors. The dress comes with either dark or light ombre palettes in 10 color combos and includes panties and leg wraps.

Below is the comparison of regular environmental settings and Advanced Lighting. Not a lot of obvious difference this time except for the highlights on the wings and the shadows
