The Great Escape

Posted on Updated on

Hello loves! I’ve been bone-deep tired the last few days, the kind of fatigue that I just can’t shake despite my best caffeine-and-cold-shower efforts. Like many of my kindred Second Life souls, I’ve some health troubles that shadow me and occasionally dull my spirits, but I do my best not to let them get the better of me. And it’s times like these that I melt more deeply into meditation, enjoying the rejuvenation that comes from a few minutes of pure relaxation. Many say that meditation can impart the feeling of flying or floating, and when I received these incredibly charming new poses from Kirin, that feeling of dreamy, floating repose is exactly what came to mind!

Poses & Destination

Poses / Kirin | My Sweet Cloud Poses – 7 | Kustom9 Event, through September 10th
Location / The Vineyard at Checkmate

Thanks to the bevy of summertime and fantasy-themed events on the grid, there have been many gorgeous mermaid pictures to enjoy on Flickr these last few weeks. So I put my own spin on the trend, imagining myself as an innocent human damsel who was kidnapped by a nefarious merman and held in his watery lair, only to escape when a low-floating cloud came by as I was sunning myself on the rocks. Hee hee! Hey, stranger things have happened!

The wonderful items in my look today may almost exclusively be found at events – 7 different ones, to be exact! – and since that’s a very auspicious number, I don’t feel the least bit guilty about making you travel the grid to pick up all the loveliness! All of the SLURLs and details may be found in the credits above, but I do want to give a special mention to the luscious Requiem hairstyle by Moon for the current round of Uber. It covers one eye and is terrifically sexy and sultry, with Moon’s trademark wonderful textures and color options.

I’m also really impressed with the lovely Hippie Dress & Belt by Salt & Pepper, part of a lovely gacha set that may be found at The Gacha Garden. The dress is available in both long and short versions, and the set includes a matching necklace, bracelet, earrings, belt, and a special “Seed of Inspiration” item that may be received after 20 consecutive plays. For more information about the event, be sure to visit The Gacha Garden website, and keep an eye on the calendar as this round wraps up on August 22nd!

    Gorgeous as ever, Ever! I love those poses, I was looking for something similar the other day and failed so I shall run and pick those up – did the balloons come with the poses? x

      Sorry for the delay, Meri! Yes the set comes with attachable balloons and clouds for each pose (the poses are built-in to the clouds, but I believe they come as separate animations as well). It’s a really lovely collection! ♥

      “Coco the cabana boy” – love it! And when he gets tired of fanning you with palm fronds, you can sacrifice him to the Tornado Gods. :) Thank you for the wonderful laugh, Winnie! ♥
