“Fairy tales were not my escape from reality as a child; rather, they were my reality — for mine was a world in which good and evil were not abstract concepts, and like fairy-tale heroines, no magic would save me unless I had the wit and heart and courage to use it widely.”

I once took my daughter to see living mermaids. She was fascinated by seeing the men and women in their tails swimming in tanks. I was fascinated to see them holding their breath for so long… I will also admit to some silent admiration in their swimming talent, something I don’t share, despite my love of boats and love of water. I can barely dog paddle. My aunt tried to teach me how to swim once, but other than float, I’m precarious in water. I can drive a boat though!
I decided to try my hand at something different in Second Life though, and become a “living mermaid” at the Accidental Entanglement Gallery. If you are into RLV capture (don’t worry you can leave it off and you’ll be able to stand up just fine) you can get ‘captured’ unwittingly and turned into living statues and works of art… or you can willingly sit down and become live mermaids. So I tried my hand at it.
I needed the proper outfit and a friend of mine had told me that I could pick up some beautiful animated body glitter for just 1L at DeeTalez. I ran over to get that as I knew it was perfect for my avatar! It was true… 1L and the body glitter was mine! I love it and this picture hardly does it justice. You will need to get it for yourself. I have seen this stuff sold on marketplace for hundreds of linden!
I grabbed the revelation body bikini group gift as well. This is free and you get the bikini and the mesh overlay also. For just a moment I popped off the bikini for fun (eeeeee) and hoooo howdy! Hot simmering hot! Or cool… (grins). Enjoy the ocean spray on this one! It comes in the following sizes and is a Free gift:

We found ourselves back in the medieval times again and when I saw Peggy’s beautiful dress and all that jewelry she was wearing, I went back to the roots of my favorite roleplay character. Sure, he is now the Alpha of his own pack (yes, he is a werewolf), but back when he was younger he used to be a bandit, a thief…
So while my friend was looking fancy, I found myself the perfect medieval outlaw outfit for only 1L on the marketplace to perfectly blend into the background of the forest. I had to sneak through the bushes after all to take my share of all that wealth, because all I got was this dirty knife!
How it ended? I’d rather not tell… Let’s just say it’s unwise to sneak after ladies in the dark forest and one of us might have ended up with a black eye. No, it’s not Peggy…..

Sirens are not mermaids… yet the walk the line between water and land, being able to both have fins and legs. I found this free dress at Barbed Wire Kisses as part of the Siren Song Hunt and imagined that it would definitely be something that a Siren would wear if she were on land. At least for a time…
I was at the same store and found a little Balloon that I was able to buy for free as part of the Anything Goes Hunt and discovered that it had matching shoes inside, because who says a Siren has to go barefoot.
And just for some thinking… How are Siren’t Different from Mermaids? Here is some perspective:

There was a time when I roleplayed pretty much every single day. I had only just learned how to roleplay when I found this sim where I felt at home and met a lot of awesome people. Recently I have been trying to get into it again, having my character come back to his homeland and continue his adventures together with his friends.
Back in the day it was hard for me to find nice medieval outfits for men that didn’t cost too much, so I wanted to share this ranger outfit from COVETED! that I found for free at Redeux. And of course I also had to show off this gift from Noble Creations which might look really good in your medieval dungeons.

This 25L Tuesday sparked some dark fantasies for me… but only in good ways. I frequent a Medieval Roleplay sim called Revenland, but I usually play a goodie-two-shoes character there. My budget friendly finds today sparked my creative side, and I put together this demonic look so I could visit the Under City.
Tuesdays are a roleplay staple in my book. You can find all kinds of beautiful ideas for filling out your roleplay wardrobe for very few lindens if you pick up the weekly list. I happened to really fancy the Melina set offered at Luas this week. There are four colors, but I picked up the silver. 25L gets you the bra, corset (which fit Maitreya and Slink Bodies) as well as an unrigged thong which you can adjust to fit. (I’m not wearing the thong but opted for a pair of black mesh pants instead.)
A Free Weapon
We ❤ RP is still going on, and as it is a birthday round, gifts abound. I picked up this axe as a free gift from Fallen Arms. You’ll get both the “hand” and “sheathed” (shown) versions as your gift. I added it to my outfit for some flair.
I’m ready to go be a little evil in my roleplay this afternoon… who knows what the roleplay will bring. But it’s bound to be interesting storytelling. And a few additions to my wardrobe never hurts!
