Tranquil Beauty at Selidor

I’ve often visited Selidor, home of Fallen Gods.  Alia Baroque is well-known for his amazing skins.

However, I had never taken the time to wander around the sim, which is a shame, because it’s beautiful.

After seeing Selidor listed on the Destination Guide, I decided to take a quick jaunt over there and see what I could find.

What I found was a wonderfully decorated sim.  I discovered two new areas I’d never seen before, including the island building in the picture above.

A beautiful, tranquil, and magical place. There’s even a ‘Lost Town’ just waiting to be found. 🙂

My favorite spot, though, was the absolutely fabulous gardens.  There are little hidden areas everywhere, each filled with lovely statues, furniture, and more.  I spent quite a bit of time exploring, because there was something new around each bend.

Ancient statues, hidden coves, gorgeous waterfalls – it was all just stunning.

I would love to have a fountain like this one in my own garden.  Though many of the statues seem to have a Grecian influence, there were also statues with an Egyptian flavor, as well as a bridge that reminded me of Viking ships with their dragon figureheads.

Of course there were fantastical elements all over, including this amazing statue.  The sim is a treasure trove of wonder, and you never know what you’ll find around the next corner.

So if you find yourself shopping at Fallen Gods, don’t forget to step outside the store itself and explore this amazingly gorgeous area.

The Night Theater – Fallen Gods

Yesterday was chock full of shows, so I have a ton of editing and blogging ahead of me today. 🙂

I received a notice that The Night Theater would be doing two performances at the Fallen Gods sim as part of their 8th Anniversary celebration.

If you missed it, you missed out!

TNT Fallen Gods 1The acts all revolved around various gods and they were simply stunning.

The first act was set in a springtime forest, complete with beautiful nymphs and a satyr.

The set builds were amazing, as were the costumes.

Many of the acts incorporated skins from Alia Baroque, the well-known creator of Fallen Gods.

If you’ve never visited the store, you should. 🙂

TNT Fallen Gods 2After the stage was cleared, the next act was beautiful for its simplicity.

Some columns, some great lighting, and again, some stunning costumes.

As the act progressed, Aelva went from statue to beautiful woman.

I’ve long been a fan of Aelva and The Night Theater, and their creativity continues to delight.

Following the transformation, the next act was Medusa.

I have this particular costume, but I’ve never used it to dance, because I couldn’t see how it would work.

TNT Fallen Gods 3Aelva managed spectacularly. 🙂

Rising from the depths of her ichor-filled pond, she danced among the stone remains of those who dared to enter her lair.

Another amazing set build and some very creative choreography.

The last act of the show was my absolute favorite.

I’m a sucker for mermaids anyway, and then throw a gorgeous Poseidon into the mix?

I’m there. 🙂

TNT Fallen Gods 4Rising from the sea-foam depths of the ocean, the mermaids frolicked among the waves.

The set was fantastic, and the costumes (again showing off Fallen Gods skins) were stunning.

Here too I was amazed by the creativity of the choreography.

The mermaids danced partially in/out of the water, thus disguising some of the difficulties of using certain dance animations when wearing a tail.

The leaps and spins of the mermaids in the air was magical to watch.

The show only lasted about 30 minutes, but the entire audience was mesmerized.

Gorgeous work and kudos to Aelva and her troupe for the spectacular show!

LOTD #96

LOTD 96I discovered r2 at Collabor88 ages ago.

A lot of the recent designs are ‘barely there’ and I just knew I could use this one. 😀

Throw out a few skulls and candles and pentagrams and voilá – instant temptress.

Which is, coincidentally, the name of this pose.
