August Round of 30/31 Event

The newest round of the Kultivate Magazine’s 30/31 event is now open.  Kultivate (formerly Windlight Magazine) has some amazing artists and designers participating in this round.

Aug 3031 Brie Dress

One of the items you can purchase is this amazing dress from Prism.   The Brie Urban Leather Dress comes with a color change HUD and the texturing on the dress is stunning.  It’s only $331L and you can pick it up here.  It comes with fitted options for Standard, Hourglass, Slink, TMP, and Maitreya bodies.  I paired it here with a great necklace from Meva and some strappy shoes from R.icielli.

Of course, there is also some fantastic art in this round.

Aug 3031 Journey Art

I love this piece – it speaks to contrasts.  The area looks isolated, with huge rocky mountains looming in the background, but then you have this lovely little area with its well-worn chairs and table, and an unfinished game just waiting for them to return.

I’ve spent many a long hour playing games with family and friends and this picture evokes all those lovely memories. 🙂

Should you desire a copy for your own home, you can find it here.  It is copy-only, but it is a fabulous piece that would add to any home.

Both pieces (the dress and the art) were created by Journey McLaglen.  I took a quick peek at her Flickr, and she is amazing.  After you finish drooling over her photostream, don’t forget to head over and pick up these amazing items – the round only lasts until August 7!

LOTD #177 – Good Omens

LOTD 177

“Gather ye ryte close, goode people.

Come close untyl the fire near scorch ye, for I charge ye that alle must see how thee last true wytch in England dies.

For wytch I am, for soe I am judged, yette I knoe not what my true Cryme may be.

And therefore let myne deathe be a messuage to the worlde.

Gather ye ryte close, I saye, and marke well the fate of alle who meddle with suche as theye do notte understande.

Thirty seconds later an explosion took out the village green, scythed the valley clean of every living thing, and was seen as far away as Halifax.

. . . any divine or devilish intervention had been materially helped by the contents of Agnes’s petticoats, wherein she had with some foresight concealed eighty pounds of gunpowder and forty pounds of roofing nails.

If that voice was a stone it would have had words chiseled on it a long time ago: a name, and two dates.

Sadly, this round of A Tattered Page is almost over.

If you haven’t stopped by The Library yet, you have today and tomorrow to drop everything and run over there to grab all the goodies.

One of the amazing items for sale is this medieval style dress from Senzafine.

Agnes Nutter, whose prophecies are a major factor in helping to stop the coming Apocalypse, is a minor character in the novel.

But what a character. 😛

I love that the dress has little lumps and bumps in the skirt to simulate the hidden gunpowder and nails.

The messy, windblown hair is a recent group gift from Truth, and I thought it was perfect for this photo.

The necklace is one I’ve had for a while, but I thought the crystal was something a witch would wear, and it looks so good paired with the dress.

In the second picture are two items from @->~ISD, a new-to-me store.

The Death goggles come in both silver and gold versions.

I love the little skull detail on the front.

The bandanna comes in two versions as well, the Death grinning one shown here and a laughing one (which is equally terrifying to look at).

I know Death is typically shown as a male, but I figure Death can probably be whatever he/she wants, right?

Hurry on over to ATP before the round ends – run!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am so honored to have been picked to blog for A Tattered Page (ATP) this round.

I love the whole concept of the event, and I was even more excited to learn the book for this round was Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Since the book deals with the advent of the Apocalypse, the Four Horsemen put in several appearances. 🙂

Of the four, War is my favorite character.

She is characterized as a beautiful woman, who creates conflict wherever she happens to be.

“People were always fighting, over her, and around her,” War thinks, early in the book. “It was rather sweet, really.” (46)

I was blown away when I saw some of the amazing items available for this round.

I love the detail of the horns/halo set from Roawenwood and I think the juxtaposition of the horns with the halo is the perfect metaphor for War in Good Omens.

The hair from KoKoLoReS is a free gift at this year’s Hair Fair (which is ending in the next week, so if you haven’t made it there yet, hop to it!).

It comes with color change HUDs so you can make it any color under the sun.

The Stringer Mausoleum is offering “The Prophetess” makeup for tattoo layers at ATP.

It comes with a ton of colors, but the Void option was the perfect fit for this look.

The dress is another offering at ATP from Greymoon.

It comes in 4 different options – snakeskin, red snakeskin, leather with a cross design on the fabric, and plain leather, which is what I’m wearing here.

I love the cross cutout in the dress – I didn’t even have to wear the alpha layer provided and it fit perfectly!

When you stop by the Library, be sure to pick up a copy of these amazing shoes from Pale Empress.

Appropriately named War, they are for Slink High feet and come with a HUD that offers a ton of options.

I love the details on the front, the skull and the bullets – again, so apropos for the character of War.

This round of ATP only runs until July 31st, so make sure to stop by before it ends.

If you like British humour and satire, I encourage you to read the novel!
