Nature’s Alchemist

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival wraps up on August 21st!  They have been adding new items since the gates opened so be sure to make another stop in before it’s over.  I did *finally* get my crown as a gift from a good friend.  Thanks Missy.  I have to say I love Peqe’s Robe dress that’s included in the carnival.

Moon 1

The dress is easy enough to accessorize for whatever look you might be going for.  C88 opened and they are celebrating their second birthday (which doesn’t seem possible)!  It’s been a little crowded and tough to get into, I finally got a peek last night and there are lots of great items to be had.

Moon 2

As you might have guessed I’ve been trying my hand at roleplaying an elf.  It’s been a long time since I roleplayed an elf but I am enjoying the change of pace from other genres that I have recently done.  And it has given me a whole new list of shopping to do – which is the most fun part right?

Game of Thrones wrapped up it’s third season this week and it was undoubtedly my favorite season so far!  I love not knowing which of my favorite characters might die next – though I plan to take time out and read the books this summer.  June is in full swing and you know that means that all the events have restarted and you can find lots of goodies in FaMESHed, We ❤ Roleplay, and Collabor88.  This look is centered around the hair that I found at FaMESHed, I am really in love with it.

GoT 1

Mandala has released more new jewelry and it is gorgeous!  Their summer collection is definitely full of must have pieces for roleplayers.  I haven’t worn a Belleza skin in sometime but I fell in love with the Ava Best Buy 1 for June.  I missed the cleavage tattoo that Belleza includes with their skins.  This an option I’d really love to have with Glam Affair, I am not always wearing Lolas and I like being able to have cleavage now and again!

Why do I blog?

soe2 soe1

I’ve been reading Berry’s Memes over the past few weeks because the woman amazes me with her blog.  I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way lol.  She’s the one blogger that other bloggers would probably build a statue of and sacrifice review copies to for more readers or better photos. 😛  I love the memes and I think it’s a great way for us to get to know the bloggers out there and their perspectives.  Here’s my latest contribution to the blogger memes!

  1. How long have you been blogging?  Since July 2008  (Holy. Shit.)
  2. Why did you start blogging?   A long time ago, I fell in love with the Second Life and its ability to allow artists to create absolutely anything their minds could fathom.  I watched SL grow and become filled with beautiful things that I could never have seen in RL.  And my favorite was always RP.  The ability to explore another facet of yourself and to express yourself appearancewise in ways that aren’t possible in RL.  SL gave me wings one day and demon horns the next.  I was hooked and I wanted to share it.
  3. How many times a week do you post an entry?  I try to post once a week at least, but as we all know RL comes first and sometimes I just won’t allow it.
  4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?  A handful on a regular basis, but I love to browse tons of different blogs.  If I read it over and over again, it’s listed on blogs we love or blogs I follow. 🙂
  5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs?  I try to, yes.
  6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have?   All the friggin’ time.  I log in several times a day to see if anyone has dropped by!  It’s silly!!
  7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote?   Absolutely never.  Oh, I’ve certainly received flack over some things that I’ve written, but I won’t ever insult my readers by playing he said she said games, posting crap, or being a bigot.  It just won’t happen.
  8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? Yes I do.
  9. Do you blog under your real name?   No, I blog under my avatar name, Roewan Kline.
  10. Are there topics that you would never blog about?   Yes, I’ve been approached several times over the years about things that I blog, mainly people talking crap about another person’s work, but if I don’t think it has some merit, I don’t post it, and I’ll never be ugly or critical about things that I can’t even do.  So, for future reference, never approach me and ask me to tear someone else down.  It won’t happen.
  11. What is the theme/topic of your blog?   Roleplay Fashion/Sims/etc.
  12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? No I don’t, I’m too enslaved to this one lol!
  13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?
    I meet the most amazing, talented people on the grid.  I can’t name them all, but people like ILYUSHIN TZEDEK (I love this murf!!), Solange Cerveau, Surreal LeShelle, Evangeline Miles, Talyn Barrett, Songfeather Starr, Delora Starbrook, Celadori Sakai, Tyr Rozenblum, Etalena Lane, Sabina Takakura, Vaelian, Cymoril Lightfoot, and so so many others (forgive me if I didn’t say your name here), and I have been fortunate enough to be exposed to their art and their unique ways of thinking, and sometimes even asked for my opinion, which is a truly amazing experience.  I also get to meet other bloggers and enjoy their art, which I love just as much.  (Strawberry, Beks, Alura, etc.!)
  14. So, why do you continue to blog?   Because I live in a podunk town with the world a thousand miles away from me.  But here, I can explore, I can experience, and with this blog I can reach out and hopefully spread my love of art to someone else who feels just like me.  ART IS LIFE.  And it’s something we must cultivate if we want it to thrive. 🙂

As for the clothing in this pic, I wanted to showcase something by Soedara.  They have just beautiful clothing there, and it’s nice to see a new silk maker out in SL and holding it’s own with the big dogs!  It’s needless to say that the game runners in the silk business have certainly changed and it’s getting harder and harder to find sexy silks out there, but people like Soedara are still amazing us with their sexy designs!  And by the way if you haven’t checked into EXXESS lately, then you should.  The woman is churning out some badass mesh hair!!  See credits!

There was a little gem hidden at the We ❤ Roleplay event, tucked over in a grassy knoll.  It was this skirt by elymode, I blogged the shirt she had for the event in this post.  Elysium Elide has been a person I have admired in Second Life since I began reading blogs and taking photos of my own so long ago.  Her photography is nothing short of amazing with it’s rich color.  When she moved into clothing design she had the same standard of quality and rich color in all of her designs.  Almost caught up on the memes!

Simple Things 1

  1. What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often? Alura McCann – February 25, 2006
  2. Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life? The first place I made friends was Rosethorn Gardens, a sim that is no longer with us!
  3. Where do you spend most of your SL time now? My private home or whatever random place I am taking photos.
  4. Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one) One? This is hard!  My closest friend is my partner but he is my RL husband so he doesn’t count.  :p  I would say that Xanadue Moorsider is my closest friend.  I love her to pieces.
  5. What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one) This is tough too.  My current favorite is my Amberly skins.  I just can’t seem to get enough of them.
  6. The last thing you purchased in Second Life?  A tunic I meant to buy for my partner!
  7. What color clothing does your avatar wear most often? Brown & Green
  8. Do you prefer to walk, run or fly? I run if the sim does not permit flying but otherwise I will fly.  If I am roleplaying then I would do whatever the situation called for.
  9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL? I teleported around randomly in a Tardis once, kind of nerdy I know but it was fun.
  10. Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?  I have no idea!

She’s nothing more than fiction…

Sometimes the longest part of my blog writing process is finding a location that I love for my photos.  Admittedly, shooting on a plain background would be easier but finding locations makes me get out and explore more than just a skybox.  I have found some pretty awesome places by doing so. Once and a while I find a location that I want to return to over and over and take more photos there.  Oasis of the Two Schmitars is one of those locations.  The sim is beautiful and I really didn’t go much past the area where you teleport in!

Hooded Girl 1

On a Lark released these awesome hoods as part of an outfit last week and I admit to buying most all of the colors.  When I put together this outfit I just imagined a girl in the Tahari trying to get some protection from the sand and sweltering heat.

Belted Girl 1

Soedara is a must for roleplayers.  Though her creations are Gorean in nature many things that she creates can cross over into other fantasy realms.  In addition to silks and other Gorean slave wear, Marbella creates beautiful crafted face jewels and headdresses.  I definitely recommend checking her out.  I am also wearing a creation from another of my favorite stores, The Plastik.  This top is currently only available at Whore Couture.  That event is ending soon, if you’ve been putting it off now is the time to go!

Belted Girl 2

I was in the market for some new poses and I received a notice from Severed Garden for a new pose set.  I went and tried them out and I bought every set that she currently has out.  They are smooth, beautiful, and cheap!  If you need some new poses definitely check them out!
