6 Word Stories – LOTD #273 – Valkyrie

I’ve recently gotten on a kick of writing and reading 6 word stories.  I always like to combine a story with my pictures, so I thought this would be fun. Here goes!

Angered, she seethed. Below, men cowered.

She danced gleefully among the pages.

“How can you not like books?” she wondered.

All those worlds, right at your fingertips.

For the last several months, I have been participating in a theme challenge at Scribbler’s Cove.

I make some weeks, I miss some.

I like challenges like this because they generally force me to learn or try something new.

Next week’s theme is ‘Books.’

I’m a read-a-holic in RL, and I have a huge collection of books.

(Not as huge as I’d like, but short of owning the Library of Congress, nothing would do.)

Apparently I also collect books in SL.

I looked through my inventory for ‘books,’ with an idea for a shoot in my head.

Umm, there’s a LOT of them in there.

More for decor than actual reading, of course, but still – a LOT of books. 😀

Floating books, big books, little books, open books, closed books, torn books, old books, new books – you name it, I’ve probably got it.

That makes me happy. 😛

After rezzing my plethora of books, I put together this look.

My usually organized inventory has become a hot mess lately, so I’m trying to go through and pull things I’ve bought but never worn.

Mixed in with some new purchases, of course.

This adorable braided hair from Truth isn’t new, but is one of my favorite looks.

The earrings and cuffs I’ve had for quite a while, but they are definitely keepers.

The necklace is a recent purchase from Maxi Gossamer for July’s round at Mix.

There was so much stuff in that box, I’m still unpacking it!

The shoes from G&D (one of my favorite shoemakers) are from the last round of 21Shoe.  *sniffs*

I can’t believe that 21Shoe closed.

One of my favorite events, darn it.

The dress from Sage is fitted mesh.

I stopped by Designer Showcase to look at another item, and ended up buying this cute little number instead.

Yay for impulse shopping!

Treat yourself – buy a book and read it, and enjoy your Monday. 😀

LOTD #171 – Dark Underworld

LOTD 171

He faltered as she paused, turning slowly.

“You doubt my powers?” she asked in a deceptively calm voice, as the ghostly lights flickered about her.

“No, mistress,” he whispered, trembling.

Genre is an event I found long ago that has become one of my favorites.

The items are all $100L or less, so my Lindens go farther than usual.

I needed that this round, because there are so many amazing items!

The theme is “Underworld,” and though I didn’t think I would find much, I was so wrong. 😀

This drop-dead gorgeous gown is from Les Encantadas.

The bracers and shoulder pieces are included and I love the way the silver and blue complement each other.

The floating flames are from Paper Moon – I saw them advertised on Plurk and had to have them!

They come in three different versions – white (pictured here), washed out, and turquoise.

They added the perfect ghostly/arcane touch for my photo.

I am in love with this breathtaking headpiece from Black Pearls.

As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what kind of photo I wanted to do.

I’m a sucker for horns anyway, and this piece is so well-made and intricately detailed. 😀

The stunning hair is from Truth, of course – a recent release.

The cascade of curls down the front are gorgeous, and the raven color completes the look.

The skin is another new acquisition from WoW skins, courtesy of their group lucky boards.

I wanted something paler than I usually wear and Amanda fit the bill perfectly.

Genre just opened on the 15th, so you have plenty of time to head over there and pick up some of this deliciousness for yourselves!

LOTD #19

LOTD 19I am having a lot of fun with the LOTD posts.

I get to see what it is in my wardrobe, and I get to play around in Photoshop.

However, it does get a bit frustrating trying to find decent poses that don’t all look the same.

So I think I will try a few photos where I am dancing and see if I can get some snaps that have some movement to them.
