In the Hall of the Mountain King

What ought a man to be? Well, my short answer is ‘himself’.

Henrik Ibsen

Ah, my Norway. Norwegian nature and Grieg’s compositions have always gone hand in hand for me. Nothing reminds me more of the mountains at home like ‘I Dovregubbens Hall/In the Hall of the Mountain King’. I can just close my eyes and listen and I’m there.

Welcome To My Empire

Don’t play the victim to circumstances you created.

We’re a week into the first round of the ORSY Event and I have more good stuff to show you! Like the awesome scrawl style Metro backdrop by JEYS (which I tilted for this shot, the sand isn’t part of the build) and one of the male poses available in The Chair pose pack from Gravity Poses.

I’m wearing the Wasteland Men’s Outfit from Ahlure, which consists of shirt with mask, pants and goggles. The boots are the amazing looking Havoc Ops Boots from Lapointe & Bastchild.

The Malicious sleeve tattoo by TAOX TATTOO fits this style perfectly I think!

From Frankie With Love

BONDI has released the ‘Fun Drone’ for the Halloween round of Access. It’s a fun companion and made as a tribute to the video game called NieR: Automata and I have to say; this drone is a most loving tribute with its beautiful design and texturing. Now I’m showing you the Halloween version today, the ‘Frankie Drone’. In green. He looks a little bit like Frankenstein! The drone comes in lots of different colors but also, the drone HUD gives you options to not only show your online status, you can have the drone show a mood. I’m all heart-eyes for Mahogany!

The awesome tattoo is from TAOX TATTOO! Unisex and multi-body HUD as well as BoM layers, in three different intensities. Find it at the TAOX mainstore.

No Pain No Gain

Welcoming the MIIX Event to my blog with this picture as we’re getting ready for MIIX Round Six! Now that rolls off the tongue doesn’t it! At this upcoming round opening on September 30th you can find, among other cool stuff, a new shape for LeLUTKA Skyler from Malibu Shapes, eyes from [amicale] and facial hair from Prolific!

No Pain No Gain is the title I chose for this post and yes it says so on the Muscle Top from Nero but also, I went all BoM for this picture. That’s a first for me. I’ve been saying all along that I’m not going BoM before I get a BoM update for my skin from Session but I might have to start looking around for a newer skin that’s at least close to ‘my look’. After going through the pains of training my stubborn brain how BoM works, I am totally ready to go all BoM, finally, because it’s easier than appliers and you can wear multiple BoM layers at the same time.

La Petite Vie keeps taking me to the most beautiful places with their builds and this time we’re in the historical city of Campeche, Mexico. La Petite Vie is participating in Tlalli: The Fair Around The World – Mexico with the Campeche backdrops, or rather, they are beautifully detailed filler builds. The extra bonus about these builds is you get texture changer HUDs for the exterior walls of both builds so you can create a whole street of colorful Mexican houses if you want to! Backdrop 1 is 17 LI and Backdrop 2 is 28. The builds are Copy / Modify.

Also at Tlalli, dudes and ladies, is the beautiful Undead tattoo by TAOX TATTOO and yes it’s unisex. It comes in three intensities, all the right appliers and BoM layers too.

BONDI is at The Arcade with The Outlaws glasses gacha. Add a touch of post apocalytic punk to your glasses collection. Each pair of glasses in The Outlaws collection come with a HUD to turn blinders on or off and adjust the lens opacity.
