The new Taylor tunic from The Sweet Pea reminded me of my days in EverQuest. I had many adventures in Norrath and many great roleplay stories. It was someone whom I met in Norrath that eventually lead me to Second Life, but that’s a story for another day.
The lovely tunic comes with a pair of matching over-the-knee boots. I paired it with some armor from Innocuous from a past We ❤ RP event. The tunic is very easy to accessorize with just about anything, making it easy to make it unique to your avatar.

Moving, unpacking, computer and internet issues finally seem to be resolved! The good news is I was able to keep up with shopping during the entire moving mess. Now, just to blog my overflowing inventory.
There have been several chalwars released lately. The first that I am going to blog is one of the two released from BINA. It’s an elegant yet simple chalwar with its own jewelry and veil included! It also includes tango appliers for the boob lovers out there. When I saw this chalwar I was instantly reminded of one of my longtime favorite chalwars from Solange. I have added a few accents of that chalwar to this look.
“From one side a slave girl, barefoot, bangled, in sashed, diaphanous, trousered, chalwar, gathered at the ankles, in tight, red-silk vest, with bare midriff, fled to him, with the tall, graceful, silvered pot containing the black wine. She was veiled.” Tribesman of Gor P. 88
The jewelry is amazing that’s included, it comes with bracelets, earrings, a veil with jewel (and a jewel without if you prefer), armbands, earrings, and a belly jewel (not pictured). If you like chalwars or just want a change in pace from silks I would definitely not miss this release.
I thought it might be fun to participate in Strawberry Singh‘s memes as I catch up on all the outfits I have to blog. I am going to work backwards so the first one is the haiku. Now, don’t laugh, writing a haiku is harder than it seems.
Shopping is my love.
Roleplay is my other love.
And there you have it! My haiku about my virtual life, which really does consist of just shopping and roleplay!

From Designer Cymoril Lightfoot:

Today, Cymoril Lightfoot, BINA Genius (*cough*bias*cough*) Designer releases Jezzie’s Wagon dress!
Those of you who have sought out a garment for a woman of the plains will back me up here, I think–its TOUGH. Finding a high quality one? Nearly impossible until now. Shown above is a completely black version. This is a RARE, LIMITED TIME OFFER. In the store there are 20 black bags at the landing point. Each costs 2000L. There will be -NO- more than 20 of these on the grid!! At the time of this post they had only just been put out and there was already only 18 remaining! So do not delay!
Another thing you need to rush in to pick up is the 25L Tuesday item! Today only, Jun 8 2010 you can buy these highly detailed birth stone posts in store:
but back to the main show…. Jezzie’s wagon dress. The official release includes the following color options:
Each color costs $599 L, fat packfor $2900 L (saving $694 L)
each comes with 18 Pieces!:
2 Dress tops (shirt and undershirt layers)
2 Prim (sculpted) sleeves
Prim (sculpted) boots
1 Prim Skirt
1 Prim Belt (with tons of RP details, pictured below)
Gold nose ring with several attachment options
1 Scripted necklace
Check out the pics:
RP items: bag similar to one you’d see in eastern india, a jade comb, keys, and on the rear… a cooking spoon and useful knife, both of which often described in the books!
Also, straight from Cymoril (because this is one of those gems of her creations that I’m still drooling over!):
The scripted necklace, an item influenced straight out of nomads.. the free women were not allowed to worship, but they did pay haruspexes (a type of holy man) to read their future or supply them with charms/talismans. Colored, knotted strings to wear around the neck were used in this example from the books, with stones that have natural holes in them. These types of stones have been considered magical for many cultures throughout time. I added carved bone beads and 2 kaiila claws for this magical fetish necklace. It is scripted to color change so you can rp wearing a color in accordance with your rp story (red for love, gold for money, green for health, etc!).
Now go!!! And don’t forget to slap the MMs, sit on a few lucky chairs and hit up the camping poles! New items!
The wheels just don’t stop when it comes to bina and I must admit hanging my head that I am sooo super late in keeping up with all the amazing reveals! I’m told theres some more stuff on the way and goodness-gracious I have to wonder if Miss Cymoril Lightfoot ever sleeps.
If she doesn’t…. Bina’s latest release “Tende” proves her efforts are well worth it:
I have honestly been wearing at LEAST one piece from this garment -everywhere- I go. I mean -everywhere-. The curled pick earrings never leave my ears.
Each Tende comes with *takes another of her famous Bina big breaths* TWENTY PIECES:
1 Pair Earrings
1 Prim Waist POuch
1 Prim Skirt tie
1 Forest flower (in THREE attachment points)
1 Bina necklace set (in TWO attachment points)
Slave Rags top and bottom ****on ALL layers*
This looks so amazing on and the colors are diverse past the traditional BTB Schendi-style red that the garment is based on. Its 365L each color set or get the steal of a fatpack for 1700L (pictured below in Cymoril’s official ad because … well because she looks hot in it! and it shows all the great options!)
Don’t delay! As always theres camping poles, lucky chairs and MM boards that I’m told by some of my smexy fellow bina girls that are locking down heavily lately!
In case you’ve been living under a hole recently and not been back to BINA…. you might not have peeped this goodness!
From the words of Cymoril Lightfoot, Bina Designer:
Whew. I don’t know about all of you guys but I’m dying to climb out of my kirtle for a few and slip into something a little more… comfortable if you know what I mean? *wink wink nudge nudge* Leave it to Cymoril Lightfoot, Bina Designer to read my mind.
Can you say…. *flails!!!* ahem. Well. We all know I can. I snuck into my partner, Darby Dollinger’s slavehouse in Salernum for this one, but something tells me he wouldn’t have minded to come home and see that next to his fireplace.
The goldenrod was my favorite, it made me think of a threadbare pagaslut look that crawled home and right into their owners lap. Very very sexy. The great thing about this, as with all the creations you’ll ever find at BINA (seriously!) is its VERSATILITY! I can’t say it enough. Something in every outfit for everyone. Check out just a handful of the mixings I made with all the colors:
You’ll find the corset on the jacket layer, the sheer on shirt/pants layer and a pair of ruffled panties that leave little to the imagination.
and oh yes, that IS three different skirt options you’re seeing!!
Another great idea my brilliantly styled fashion mind (heh, right) came up with was some mixing and matching! I paired the shirt/pants layer on the pink with a skirt and sash from the purple. Great variety!
Then lets not forget the accessories!
Shown: Hairpins, Bracelets, Anklets, Toe Ring, Thigh Pouch, Earring (didn’t get a closeup of the armlet, but trust me, its epic)
*takes a breath*
tell me you don’t loooveeee it?
Check out BINA in its new location, don’t forget to update your LM’s folks!!! New stuff in the chairs, MM and camping poles as well!!
Well first of all Happy Holiday Season to everyone! Whatever you may be celebrating (even if its just an excuse to eat great food and have a few drinks!) I hope you’re having a good time 🙂
Despite the craaaaaazzzzzyyyy amount of good stuff Cymoril Lightfoot, Bina Owner and Designer put out for christmas for us all–she has a new release!!!
Bina Pudding Kirtle!
(Unbleached Version Shown, Kirtle Length, Taken at Bina Sim!)
When I was dropped this a while back (*coughs and is a LITTLE bit slow thanks to too much holiday fun*) I fell in love!!! Most of us northern girls know all about kirtles and camisks, of course, but this new option is completely gush worthy! It’s warm and soft looking while still giving the torn hard working bond look that is great for all your roleplay needs!
These next pictures are of the ‘clean’ vs. ‘dirty’ versions and all the color options you can find at BINA! Left is the dirty, be sure to check on the breast area and one of the underarms for the worn parts if you can’t spot the ‘dirty’ 🙂
Red, CAMISK Version in Dirty and Clean versions
Black! Same deal 🙂
Blue! (apparently I loved the camisk versions!)
A very rich purple!
The Unbleached Camisk Version like pictured above!
AND! Who can forget? The traditional white!
Of course t his comes with all the bina favorite accessories! The belt on each set is different and all the sculpted pouches that hang from it are varying colors!
Each set comes with a pair chunky gold earrings with a corresponding stone featured as well
and of course each kirtle/camisk set comes with some protection for your feet in those snowbanks you’ll be dashing around!!
So cute and functional. I love the additional pieces that come along and aid in all your fine roleplay garment needs! Sounds a bit canned but SO TRUE. I like not having to RP frozen toes! 🙂
Each color set costs 428L or you can snag a fatpack of ALL the colors for 2498. I’m told theres a special color coming out soon so keep your peepers peeled for that too!!!!
