Shelter from the Storm

I love listening when the heavy rain landing on the roof, while the thunder giving the background noise and the lightnings cutting the angry waves enlightening the dusky sky. It’s relaxing.. specially from a shelter.

I made this picture at Gale Storm Retreat, one amazing place in Second Life. Well worthy to visit if you want to make some photos or simply want to relax in the rain.

Fade Away

“Some people seem to fade away but then when they are truly gone, it’s like they didn’t fade away at all” – this Bob Dylan quote Cica Ghost choose for her latest art exhibition in Second Life. Called Fade Away is amazingly inspiring – like most of her artwork, because it’s not the first time i visited -, can bring you into a fun and deep trip.

For me so rock lyrics popped into my mind..as the Rolling Stones Time waits for noone…

FadeAway by Cica Ghost - clock

But also Neil Young’s classics, Old Man.. (Old man look at your life..)

FadeAway by Cica Ghost - elder

And having this place filled with ghosts, Bruce Springsteen’s The Ghost of Tom Joad when singing “Going someplace, there’s no going back”…

And the picture i set as featured image, now that’s Rolling Stones Dead Flowers.

I rarely do this, but this time can highly recommend to VISIT this place!

Hold the line

It’s 15th of March (well, it was an hour ago) so it’s a new round of Treasure Chest in Second Life! The theme for this month was Royal Treatment, which I frankly thought will be a challenging one to inspire me. Yet, when i unpacked the boxes and I found this supper cute Prince Frog by Unrepentant, i was already grinning. As you can see i couldn’t stop rezzing only one, but i surrounded myself with a whole army of frogs, waiting to get a chance with the princess.

Royalty

Having a huge passion for knifes i was even more happier when i tried on this worn sword crown (Vengeance Taken by The Half Moon Market), which i completed with the [Decoy] Kryst Hair from the Novembers Treasure Chest. Adoness made again some awesome eyes – which i surely can use a lot -, and the Bilquis dress by Faida was a perfect match for my image. The Roawenwood‘s Sovereign Born Royal Chaise was offering me the perfect animation for what i had in my mind, so i had a really fun time tonight.

Ok, i admit it. This picture has nothing to do with fairy tales. It’s rather a message to stay strong with your principles, even when becomes overwhelming.

 

I made my point!

My artsy mood knocked on my door and i let it in! At least i think so, because i pretty much enjoyed working on these pictures. Looking at them you might notice a fetishistic tendency – which is correct, because all my inspiration came from these beautiful gears, but beyond the sexual teasing i tried to express visually some of my social/political comment about whats happening around me, around us!

I will let you guessing my message…

blind-eyed-surveillance

But let me talk about these inspiring gears. On both picture i used items by Constraint, as follows: [CON] Strapped Torture Underbust Corset – Leather, OA/[CON] Sluts Harness (Pleasure Belt, Body Harness and Leather Cuffs), [CON] Vampire Gloves (Leather) – BENTO compatible, and the superstar of the second picture is the [CON] Third Eye Blindfold!

Not as it would be too important in this case, but i wear Maitreya Mesh Body.
