A Princess in Tuscany


I am a fan of the store Knick Knacks, but I had never explored the sim before. Pass through the courtyard and you are in the middle of the Tuscan countryside. It is a watercolour of hills, crumbling buildings and flowers. It is the perfect place for a princess to wander.

Princess Aurora, in particular. The Aurora dress by *Just BECAUSE* for Uber is a collaboration between mother and daughter. Annie Melson’s 15-year-old daughter designed the dress and Annie created it for Second Life. Together, they are AnnieRose. And they have created magic.

Magic fit for a princess in Tuscany.

When The Bough Breaks

1 Cold Out sm

Winter is slowly finding its way to Second Life. While there are still some sims sporting autumn colours and some that just stay the same summery or springy style all year round, there are more and more opportunities to frolic in the virtual snow. Pull on some snug boots, throw on your favourite jeans and toss on a sexy jacket and you’re prepped for stepping out or just lounging on the nearest branch.

Since I didn’t get to partake of Thanksgiving dinner this year, I’m hoping I’ll be able to get out of this pose before the bough breaks.

This cute jacket will be 50% off at Apple May Designs on November 29th for Lazy Sunday. It comes in a variety of colours – something that will suit your mood, I’m certain. The boots by fri.day are available at Kustom9 through Dec. 10th. You can check the credits for all of the other goodness.

S Is For She Of The Mountains

1 She Of The Mountains 01

In Hindu culture, Parvati, “She of the mountains,” is the consort of Shiva, the Supreme God within Shaivism. But she is a goddess in her own right, the goddess of Power and the source of all power and weapons. She can be both wrathful and benevolent. In some legends, she is the woman behind the man but in others she is superior to Shiva. She is, in other words, the prototypical woman, showing her strength in various incarnations.

Also from Hindu culture comes Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, nature, arts and music. She represents enlightenment, creativity and eloquence. She is also multi-faceted and a role model for everyone.

From Greek mythology is Athena, the goddess of knowledge, strength, just warfare and the arts. She is one of the strongest goddesses in Greek culture. In fact, city of Athens was named for her.

Gods and goddesses is the motif at this month’s round of The Theme Park. You can find inspiration from all three of these goddesses – Parvati by Sax Shepherd Design, Saraswati from .:CoLLisions:. and Athena from Coquet. Each offers a beautiful representation of they goddess they have chosen.

1 Parvati

Here is a closer look at Parvati, the stunning jewels and the front of the lovely tatto inspired by Saraswati. Obviously, the designers of this round of The Theme Park have drawn on the creativity and knowledge of the goddesses they have chosen to honour.

In case you didn’t know already, Pose Fair 2014 is now open! I am using one of the natural Body Shot poses from Image Essentials to highlight my portrayal of a goddess 🙂
