When it rains, it really pours

UnK 018

If you ever had the desire to build your own urban city or just wanted some extra filler homes for any other purpose then later today these buildings will be available. The new round of The Epiphany opens and unKindness has the Concrete Jungle Gacha set that is made of all these buildings that you see in both pictures.

unK 015-2

We’ve been having some torrential downpours lately, almost every afternoon. It was raining during the making of these scenes so here is the result of that day.

Have a great start to your weekend!

There is nothing like staying home for real comfort

Tia 007-Darker

After several restless nights I finally got a good sleep in, so I’m feeling bright-eyed and bushy tailed. In other words fully alert and with a slight degree of enthusiasm. I’m not a morning person after all!

Today I am featuring a new designer/creator.  New to the blog, but not to Second Life. She’s been around for a few years and her store  in Second Life is focused on original, high quality, mesh role play furniture.  Her new release, the Kaoutar lounge set, is a gorgeous adult set of furniture.

You get quite a bit of animations with both the double and single seats, that have a mixture of single sits, cuddles, dominants and sex animations.  It’s 100% mesh and my favorite of all creations is always the texture hud that gives you a little customization.  This one includes a hud with 10 luxury colors for the fabric and 5 wood colors.

The set is available now at the new We ❤ Role-Play round that started July 5th, and will go through July 31st.  It will be at the main store after the event, but why wait, grab it at a discount now!

Taking off the grit and grime of everyday life

Epia 005 Close up

When I got this firefighter uniform, a new store release from (epia), also known as “Every Pixel is Art,” the thought of doing a scene of saving a cat from a tree came to mind.  Except someone beat me on the concept and so switching gears I recalled this animated water hose in my inventory and the scene sort of created itself.

Have a great Monday!

Dog sitting

Jian 008

I actually did this over the past weekend with my sisters dog as she traveled out of town for the day. Her dog is pretty tame and  is very content these days just to claim her space in the room and sit quietly.

In-world it’s a different story.  I can handle more than one.  These cuties I’m showing are the corgis from JIAN that will be available tomorrow at the Arcade.  There are 15 total with 12 commons and 3 rares with a 11% rare chance and $50L per play.

There is a new thing with the Arcade this round and that is the rewarding of loyal players who at 50 plays to the same machine will receive a reward.  JIAN’s reward is the kite flyer corgi, which has 5 different whimsical animal kite textures.

There is so much more to the corgis than what you see.  Get all the details on the corgis below the credits.

Battle of the Bear Bands

Boogers 005ps

I was happily surprised when I opened up the blogger package of bears from BoOgErS for the upcoming round of The Arcade that starts on June 1st, because of what they represent.  It’s musical bear bands.

You see my father was a musician and his love of music was profound. It was his passion. He played the accordion since he was just a young kid. In his last years my dad still played every now and then with local groups and I recall one or two times where he participated in events where they had battle of the bands.  I don’t think he cared much about winning.. for him it was just doing something he loved.

Today is the anniversary of his passing and so I brought little me out to play the accordion in remembrance of him.  As you can see I suffered a little stage fright.

The Arcade opens June 1st and if you want to get all the latest news, visit their website here.

The band bears gacha will be 25L per play.  There are 15 commons, 2 rares, and 1 reward, which is something new.  You can get details on the player reward system on their website as well under news.

The other new thing with this June round is that there will be two identical Sims to shop from and two identical homestead sims to cam shop from.

Have a great Wednesday!

Ring side ticket

“In the boxing ring of life, it’s not how hard you can hit, but rather how many times you can get hit and keep moving forward.” ~rocky

Genre 014

Over the weekend on Sunday after having dinner with family members we all enjoyed time together playing cornhole.  It’s a lawn game where players take turns throwing bags of corn at a raised board that has a hole at the far end of it. I’m not much of a sports person, but it’s always fun getting into the spirit of playing with my family.

Though playing with some of my siblings means you have to be able to handle their intended good nature teasing.  My younger brother is a big sports fanatic whose played sports since he was young.  He loved to taunt me that I took after the other side of the family when my throws didn’t quite make it.  I had to remind him that at least I wasn’t whining and crying like he did when I beat him at marbles when we were young.

Well this month Genre is back with a sports theme.  Today I’m featuring this gold trophy by Bliensen + MaiTai, which is available now at the newest round that started on May 15th and will run through June 12th. I’m showing only the 1st place trophy, but there is a 2nd and 3rd place trophies as well.

I was after boxing gloves when I played this gacha and ended up getting the mystery item, which is the boxing ring that came in handy for this post. Most of the items except the top and shorts that are from Collabor88 this month are gacha items and detailed below.

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!

BeauRoche

Castle 027

Today I am featuring this mixture of cottage and castle known as the BeauRoche by M&M Creations, designer and creator of sculpted prims and mesh. The cottage/castle was inspired by a late medieval cottage found in rural France. It sits atop a small rocky rise that gives it a grandeur presence.

028
Basement

It’s highly detailed in both the mesh and textures utilized and to give a touch of realism the exterior texture has put-log holes to convey the age of the building.  All of the doors, gates and windows are scripted to open and close with original new sounds and the fountain seen in the first picture is scripted with running water that can be turned on and off.

031
First Floor

The balcony in the last photo could also be used as an entrance as the railing leading out from the house can be swapped out for a gate.  There is arch way in the courtyard/garden.

034
Second Floor

Each purchase includes a copy/modifiable version of high and low LOD build, and a template for the nameplate and also the shade maps.   The high has a land impact of 95 with the low at 56 with a footprint of 31×28.5 meter.

033
Back view

It’s a well done building that is great for medieval role-play enthusiasts. Go check out other builds by this creator at their main store

The leaning tree in the first picture is not part of the building.  It’s the newest tree by Little Branch called the Honey Tree, available now at the newest round of Lost & Found. The flowers also show in the first picture are by Little Branch as well and currently at FaMESHed.
