Pure Evil

  "Maleficent: Listen well, all of you. The Princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But, before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she shall prick her finger, on the spindle of a spinning wheel - AND DIE!
Sleeping Beauty - 1959

 Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty, my all time favorite fairy tale growing up.  I always loved the storyline and of course, the witch Maleficent had to be the best villain I'd ever seen out of all the Disney fairy tale movies!  I was looking at the new Flickr posts the other day and came across a new Maleficent Witch Avatar and costume by Precious Restless of Vita's Boudoir!  I couldn't believe it, it was simply stunning!  I of course had to buy, buy, buy, then try it on as soon as I could.  You definitely need the latest Phoenix and/or a viewer for mesh.  She made several sizes in certain pieces for a good fit.  Here is the writeup in the marketplace by Precious:

This is a complete avatar,  which means it contains skin,eyes,brows,sculpted eyelashes,dress(mesh in 5 standard sizes),hat(also mesh in 5 sizes),shoes,witch animated magical staff and alpha layers in every possible combination so you can wear dress without hat in some another glamorous occasion :)))
Everything in box is modify except skin,eyes and brows ;)

This avie and costume is so much fun!  I took the pictures of Natalie below at Bentham Forest, the perfect setting for evil in its purest form :)  This would also make the perfect Halloween costume!  Yes, this detailed, beautiful costume along with the avatar is amazing....literally to DIE for!  *evil laugh*

Wisteria Wind

Okay, I know I'm rather slow moving here lately, sorry you all! Just been very busy with first life, you know how that goes. I miss blogging, so can't imagine staying away for too long! Anyway....

This time my blog is focusing on a simply stunning outfit my friend and sis SeleneLily gave me. She is always so thoughtful and is known to shower people with gifts for no particular reason at all, except that she's an unselfish, kind, and wonderful person :) This outfit is called Wisteria Wind by Elvina Ewing and the color is to die for! My favorite color is already blue, so this is just perfection to me. As always, the details are what make the outfit so contains wisteria and little butterfly adornments, along with lovely and elaborate feminine trim. The fit is just right and flows beautifully. The flowing fabric moves as you do and looks totally natural. You can also wear it in different ways as there are several pieces. Here is what's listed in the marketplace:

This set includes 13 pieces in total:
✿ clothing layers (no mod/copy): top on shirt and undershirt layers; thong; long glitchpants;
✿ prim parts (mod/copy): sculpted chest cloths decorated with wisteria vines and flowers;

✿ L & R upper leg short skirt pieces (sculpted folds & flexi prims);
✿ L & R sleeves decorated with wisteria flowers.

The matching wreath and sandals are sold separately. Also, I added the wings from Fancy Fairy because I decided I wanted to be a faerie for a change. The outfit comes in both blue and purple.

A Collector of Mushies

Hi all!  I know it's been a long time since I've posted, and I apologize for that!  I've had alot going on in real life and have just not been able to be on like  I want to.  I'm hoping I can be more regular with my posts again *crosses fingers*.

I'd like to dedicate this post to a precious accessory I absolutely love created by Maena Tammas of Mae Fairy Tale.  First, I adore mushrooms of all sizes, shapes, and colors.  To me, they are so magical and add so much to any kind of fantasy scene you may want to create.  There are so many beautiful and different "styles" here in Second Life.  I decided to go to a sim called Calan Diva to take some pictures for this post, as they have some lovely and colorful mushrooms on display.  I dressed Natalie in a darling outfit created by Elvina Ewing called,  Huldra, then I added a new accessory designed by Maena called Shroom Backpack with Gnome.  It's exactly as it states, a backpack full of colorful mushrooms with a tiny gnome holding a lantern hanging on the side of the backpack.  It is just wonderful and so much fun!  Thus, the little Mushroom faerie starts her collection of enchanted mushrooms.....with the little gnome's help of course!  :)

Sunny April

Sunny, cheerful, colorful, spring, Easter! Just a few words that describe Elvina Ewing's April Easter outfit. This was so much fun to wear and to take pictures in.

This design is so rich in color and comes with a beautiful head and waist wreath. The shoes are also Elvina's, but not included. Here is Elvina's list of what's included from the marketplace:

In this set:
✿ shirt on undershirt and shirt layers;
✿ dress bodice on shirt and jacket layers;
✿ shirt + bodice in one on undershirt, shirt and jacket layers;
✿ underpants;
✿ stockings;
✿ sculpted prim skirt with apron, lace underskirt, daisies and bow at the back;

Elvina Did It Again!

Elvina Ewing of Caverna Obscura did it again with one of her newer designs called Sorcerer's Apprentice. I spotted this in her blog (listed under fantasy to the right) and....well here we are :) I think the first thing that attracted my attention was the beautiful shade of blue! Blue is my favorite color anyway, then with it applied to an elven style I've always loved (more tailored with pants), how could I go wrong? Every time I acquire one of Elvina's designs, it always looks just as good or better than in the pictures...I've never been unhappy with a single one. This one has a lovely casual and tailored look of blue velvet sprinkled with gorgeous purple jewels here and there. As do many of Elvina's designs, this outfit comes with the boots and also an apprentice belt with scrolls, potion vials, pouches and a spellbook. A delicious buy indeed!

A Light in the Dark Forest

If you catch a firefly
and keep it in a jar
You may find that
you have lost
A tiny star.

If you let it go then,
back into the night,
You may see it
once again
Star bright.

The Beauty of an Enchanted Castle

As if a King overlooking his subjects, the castle stands atop a large mountain in the Bavarian Alps. Towering above misty clouds, it stands strong and majestic and exudes charm, magic and pure enchantment to all those who grace its presence.

What is it about castles? I loved them as a little girl, grew up loving them, and still love them. There's something so magical, yet so mysterious about these beautiful and amazing architectural pieces of art. My favorite castle of all time is the Neuschwanstein Castle in southwestern Bavaria, Germany. It was originally built and owned by Ludwig II of Bavaria in the 19th century and embodied the architectural fashion known as castle romanticism. It has become one of the most famous castles of all time bringing in thousands of visitors every year.

I'd like to focus on a wonderful and whimsical hat called Enchanted Castle created by Precious Restless of Vita's Boudoir. When I saw it in the store I smiled and it became a part of my huge inventory in a flash! The castle is extremely detailed and has so many extra touches worth mentioning. These include the flag on top of the castle, the light shining at the top, and especially the clouds which float around the castle while you're wearing it. I also found a beautiful dress called Potpourri at Vita's Boudoir that goes perfectly with the hat.

POEM by Robyn Schwartz

Across the ocean and above the lands

Sits a legacy for all curious eyes.
An ivory castle on a lonely peak
Where even the clouds bow down
Beneath its soaring majestic spires.
It was the dream of one king not long ago
That flustered the brow of every fair maiden.
To build for beauty, hold art above war.
Dismissing tradition and logic for lies
And following a single dream to lands end.
He sat on the banks of the river Rhine
Imagining one original palace after the next.
Maybe he shopped in the Marienplatz
For velvet loveseats and porcelain swans
To adorn the seed of his hearts content.
But now the king has been gone for years.
And Bavaria has never quite been the same
Since the death of Kind Ludwig the mad.
His castles stand proud and greet the wanderers
And journeyman, and dreamers and historians alike.
Though all are rare in craft and dripping in style
One of his lonely dreams stands above the rest.
Reaching beyond the Alpine rolling skies
Coloring heaven with a touch of human royalty.
A place any Sleeping Beauty would pray to wake.
It is here, I fell in love again, twice in the time of a year.
First with the earth, its inhabitants achievements
And the very nature that hides them in its breast.
The lakes that capture the suns final rays,
The heaving mountains with their fancy caps of snow,
The whispering cow bells carried by the gentle winds
And the serenity of the painted villages sleeping below.
The second time was with a young mate
Who accompanied me to my secret place.
To cavort once the daily bustles had calmed.
He fell for the battlements I had loved before
Understood the treasures I longed to share.
He carried me up the mountain like a princess
To her new palace on the night they were wed.
He kissed me to the whimpering of waterfalls,
Then watched on as the sun sank to bed.
Blessed be whoever may fall upon this place
Tucked into the heart of the Bavarian Alps
For this is the spot where I proudly left my heart,
And left Neuschwanstein for widened eyes to behold.

Sleeping Beauty's castle in Disneyland and Disney World was designed after Neuschwanstein
