In The Half-Light

Be seeing you, sweetling. In the half-light.

The Buzzing

For this round of Cosmopolitan, GOOSE has the Umbrella Bench set. The umbrella lantern is a fun, a little strange but beautiful piece which inspired the half-light mood of this picture. The bench comes in PG and Adult versions.

I’m also featuring the beautiful aelin tree and the noori flower by Yugen. Like all trees from Yugen, you get a leaf and bark HUD and you can find four different versions of the tree in the box and each version come in a high and a low LOD version. The noori flowers come with or without fireflies, touch the flower for texture changer menu. Easy peasy and you’ve got yourself the most beautiful and magical scenery!

Beachy Sunset

The Agarwood Tree is an evergreen tree that was mostly found in Northeast India, Bangladesh and Southeast Asia, and is now considered endangered. Deep, rich, earthy and personal, its sweet yet sharp balsamic woodiness will stimulate all of your senses. Agarwood trees grow randomly in the forest, usually in difficult to reach places. A couple of them have made it down to our beach for the sake of this picture. Agarwood is also an aphrodisiac, both in oil form, and as incense. The Agarwood Tree is a new release by The Little Branch and it’s available at this round of Uber. Happy landscaping!

Route 69

When we’re not on SL, M and I often watch horror shows together on Netflix (screen share in Discord for the win!). Her passion for the genre has opened my eyes to Norwegian horror as we’ve watched Cave and are now enjoying the Bloodride short stories. Villmark and Cold Prey are definitely also now on the ‘to watch’ list! This scene I’ve created doesn’t look anything like Norwegian horror though; no dark forest, no looming mountains or cracking glacier… but would you stay at the Wander Inn?
