I’ve showed you the light version yesterday and obviously, this is the dark one.

Ante meridiem

Good evening! I know this post is unexpected as I usually post in the mornings, but I plan on posting another one tomorrow. Yes, this is me keeping the promise I made to myself, posting every other day. Well, you can all join me and hate Blogotex together.

Shadow Box is the new concept brought to you by Death Row Designs. It’s a monthly subscription box, similar to the ones you’re familiar with already, like Luxe Box and Deco(c)rate. Here’s some more information about it from their website:

It combines the mystery of getting something new and unknown once a month, with a bonus reward for purchasing a full series. Every Shadow Box contains twelve items created by Death Row Designs. Every series is 6 months, or 6 Shadow Boxes. At the end of a series the bonus reward becomes available to anyone who has received or purchased every box in the series.

The concept of Shadow Box is twelve unique products, six light or “normal” products and the other six are their dark or “abnormal” counterparts, or shadows. These items are not simple recolors. Every shadow has something unique about it ensuring you are receiving 12 unique items every month. Although every box stands on its own and can be used with or without the other months, a full series of six will reward you with not one, but two buildings at the end of the series. A light building and its dark counterpart, made specifically for that series, can be redeemed at no extra charge.”

You can read everything about Shadow Box and how to get it, here.

Rustling leaves

Good morning world and happy Monday! We’re having a moody weather in Athens today, still warm but very cloudy and possibly rainy later so today’s post feels appropriate. Autumn is here for good and it was about time it arrived.

The picture features a lot of new stuff from the Arcade. So grab your coffee and enjoy reading the long list of credits. It was great fun working on this picture for so many reasons. Mostly because it’s about Autumn which I have missed, (there’s a limit to the number of bikinis I can blog apparently) but also because I got to be creative and use a lot of different items, mix them together and hopefully make a nice picture.

Arcade has been open for several days now, so getting in the sim shouldn’t be a problem anymore. Good luck and have fun!

Good morning world! As promised, here’s the post of the scene I used for my picture yesterday. It’s the new 22769 stuff, currently at the Arcade. Here’s 3 things you should know about them:

1. This gacha set is event-exclusive, which basically means, it will be no longer available after the event is over.

2. Their materials, when lit, come to life. Put some light on them and see what I mean.

3. The “portrait from the other side” common item (the guy with the mustache you see in that portrait by the table) is a bit spooky and definitely brilliant. Play with it by turning your camera up, down, left and right and enjoy.

Good morning everyone! I will skip the “oh it’s Friday, yay” part, I know you probably share the same joy I do, and move on to the stuff.

Hive made a stage for the Rewind event. Yes, a stage with lights and barricades and everything. Now if you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know already that I used to be a dancer, so stages are kind of my thing. I love them. Looking at them, taking pictures of them, being on them. No matter what they look like, I don’t care – I just want to be near a stage. Sometimes, when I go to the theater, I’ll arrive super early, in order to get on the stage, when no one’s really there yet and take pictures on it. Auditions, failed or successful ones, performances, rehearsals, so many beautiful memories are brought back to me as soon as I’m on one. There is probably a disorder named after that – or will be after today.

So today, I went with an idea of an abandoned after-the-concert stage, picture. When everyone has left, and you only see what’s left of it. There are no signs indicating what kind of concert took place, but the event’s theme is the 70s so just choose your favorite.

Good morning world! Did everyone have a nice week? Nice or not, it’s over and that is a good thing. At least for me. Well technically, it’s not over yet, but if you work Monday to Friday, you know what I mean!

A lot of new creations, all of which are destined to spice up your kinky side, are waiting for you there. The event opens today so stop by and check them out.

Wooden Jungle

Good morning world! I have been singing “Welcome to the Jungle” by G’n’R to myself whilst working on this picture, for all the obvious reasons. I’ve said it before and I will say iy again. I’m obsessed with plants. Not in RL but SL. Don’t try to figure me out. 9 out of 10 times I don’t make sense. Quirky is how I prefer to be described as. He he.

Today’s post features the release of 22769 at the newest round of Liaison Collaborative, which is actually going to end soon. Have a look below for every item used and where you can currently find them.

The Secret Teahouse

Good morning world. Today I’ve realized that naming my posts, usually takes me more than actually making them. That is not always the case but happens quite often. I always want a nice title for them, something to catch one’s eye and hopefully to explain or compliment my picture. But man, that is hard! I have considered borrowing song lyrics, poems or whatever, and I often do, but still, it’s not easy finding something witty and to the point. So from now on, when that happens, and since time is money, I will name those kind of posts after the name of items used in the post itself. So “Secret Teahouse” is the name I’m going with today. Thank you.

Speaking of the Teahouse, it’s one of the new releases you’ll find by 22769, currently at Japonica (BAROQUE) event. Comes with some decor too. I did some research but not a thorough one, and if I’m right, the event ends in 2 days, so hurry up and visit today. I heard the sim there is nice.

The outfit is beautifully made by Addams, their newest gacha release at Epiphany. Have a look at the gacha key here and here (there are 2 gacha sets) for more details on what you can win. And of course, scroll down for the landmarks and information on every item used.

Eyes on the ocean

Good morning world! You’ve probably noticed that Flickr was a mess yesterday, which explains my absence blogging wise. Recent activity wouldn’t refresh, which means, any new post wouldn’t show up on anyone’s feed. Which also means, all the hard work for nothing. Sadly, Flickr plays a huge role in SL blogging, as it determines, big time, a picture’s exposure. And you probably also know that this is not the first time something like that happens. I just wish for two things. A. Flickr would send a notice each time that happens, B. a day will come that Flickr or any other social media won’t be necessary and posting on a blog will just be enough. I know, I know…I can dream on.

Today’s post features some new goodies. Let’s start with the head, which is a new bento head by Genesis Lab, currently at the Epiphany. That means it’s gacha and rare but this time you’ll notice that it’s already omega compatible. All your previous bento gacha heads (Sofie, Ethan, Flor) aren’t and there are ways to exchange them to copy/omega versions which I blogged about here.

The outfit, glasses and ice cream are part of the same gacha by Mossu. Mossu collaborated with Genesis and brough this big “We Want Summer” gacha so you should have a look at the gacha key here to see the whole collection and more details.

The scene consists of the huge docks 22769 brought to us at the Gacha Guardians (I know, more gachas, but you’re probably as addicted as I am) along with some of the decor around. Here‘s the gacha key of this collection. In the background you’ll notice the Food Truck DRD had released at past 6th Republic event and you can currently find at the mainstore. The sale over there is still going on and I blogged about it here, so if you haven’t yet, maybe now’s the time to visit.

Have a look at the list below for everything else used in the pic, details and landmarks.

Big, special thanks to my Mos for creating this pose and patiently posing with me for a while. Yes, I like to take my time and he knows that now!
