Cold Blue Sky

Find myself in peace, warm from underneath.
Wish you would be here in this magic scene.
I’ve escaped from reality, dancing in the snow.


It’s that time of year when the world sleeps, blanketed in white. Waiting to wake in a new dawn at the first kiss of springtime. Today’s feature, Winter Courtier, is my lovely and ever creative sponsor Nefekalum Tattoo’s offering for this round of Aenigma: Walts of the Daemons. The materials enabled tattoo is compatible with most mesh bodies including Omega and Legacy appliers. The beautiful symbols worked into the icy design are reminiscent of celtic and norse mythos. A wonderful choice for any winter spirits waiting to wake and celebrate the season.

  • I apologize, I took it over Thanksgiving week and somehow I completely forgot to write down the hair I used in this shot for some reason. Tried to find it in my inventory but it’s apparently vanished?

If you wanna run away with me, I know a galaxy
And I can take you for a ride


Cinphul‘s (feels weird capitalizing that but hopefully Imokon will forgive me because grammar and whatnot XD) uniquely named ‘prst.qn‘ set may not be their newest release, but it’s certainly one of their most iconic in recent history. Like the ‘prst.comdr‘ set I shot some time ago this outfit offers a variety of original mesh pieces, rigged and otherwise. And even while the prst.qn set offers a much more streamlined and delicate look, I would hardly call it dainty or light.

Each rigged piece works well with most popular female mesh bodies, flat chested or otherwise, and all pieces come in a variety of colors to suit most any situation. As with all of Imokon’s creations, the prst.qn set boasts some truly exquisite materials. The whole affect giving the wearer a truly otherworldly appearance.

The Horror Beyond

Are you afraid? You should be
I can’t explain what’s happening to me
I’ve been to places
That we’re not allowed to go
To learn the words
That we’re not supposed to know
Say them with me


To say I had far too much fun with this photo would be a dramatic understatement. I’m proud to say that I managed to combine the work of all three of my incredible sponsors here! There’s a lot going on though so let me break it down for you:

Just as a quick note – I highly suggest viewing this photo in its largest format. On Flickr this can be done by simply clicking on the image once or twice to ‘blow it up’. Here, you need to right click on the photo and select an option to view it in another tab and that should do it.

First up let’s talk about the amazing Nefekalum Tattoos! In this photo, I’m wearing both their “The Blood” arm and chest tattoos as well as “My Anubis” facial tattoos. Both of these are available in a few options and both include materials layer activation which gives them very cool highlights depending on the lighting in your area.

Next we have cinphul’s beautiful Argos set. This set was a very pleasant surprise for me as I was fully prepared to use it on my Maitreya Flat Chest look but discovered that the rigged Waist Cincher is actually rigged for Legacy Male! Can I just say that I love the hell out of Imokon for rigging for us guys as well? Because I really do. Not only is this Materials Enabled, beautifully detailed mesh set rigged for my preferred mesh body, but a ton of others as well! Both Male AND Female! The collar is fully adjustable as it’s unrigged and both the collar and cincher come with a texture HUD offering 8 different and utterly gorgeous texture options! If you’ve been collecting the recent clothing and accessory releases from cinphul these are an absolute must have for your Insect Queen look!

Last but certainly not least is my most recent sponsor – DREAMCATCHER! I’ve used their incredible Fallen Angel Aphelion Skirt in photos once or twice now but I wanted to do a piece that really highlighted how utterly gorgeous it is. The whole piece does have materials enabled but they’re subtle and blissfully reasonable as far as metal and leather go. No awkward or unnecessary shine here, folx! This piece is rigged for Legacy M, Belleza Jake, and Signature Gianni just to cover all the primary bases. It also includes a lovely texture HUD that offers the option to texture the skirt and belt separately. The movement is great as well! This really is the whole package in one, wonderfully simple, piece of clothing.

Just for kicks, I also decided to include DREAMCATCHER‘s Echo of Darkness orbs. And while, I admit, I added the electrical effects in photoshop just for flavor, these beautiful orbs are genuinely lovely all on their own. They are Mod/Copy and the orb, while it’s built onto the same mesh as the pedestal, is its own face. So if you have a little experience with the edit menu in Second Life, it’s super easy to add a little glow to it. These are available in red, as shown, purple, and a very pretty tealish green hue. They are 1 land impact at their ‘out of the box’ size but since they’re Mod you can resize them however you like! Just remember, that can have an effect on the land impact, so keep an eye on that!

To live, to let us die another day


Allow me a moment to both welcome my newest sponsor DREAMCATCHER and sing their praises. I stumbled across this little shop with the help of Flickr and was immediately struck by the creativity of the creator behind it. It’s painfully rare to find a creator willing to delve into alternative fashions for men such as the delightfully puffy sleeves I’m wearing in this photograph, as well as the skirt I will be displaying later on this week. So, naturally, I took the initiative and applied via their Blogotex. I held no assumptions that I would be accepted, of course, and was entirely too delighted to receive a generous message a short while later to that effect.

The Theodore sleeves worn in this photograph are incredibly versatile and can be worn with any sleeveless outfit or on their own. They do not connect in the front or back, so it’s not quite a bolero jacket, but the shoulder cuff is tight enough to reasonably keep them up (if you’re into realism at all). They come with a wonderful HUD boasting not only an extremely wide variety of colors, but the means to adjust the transparency to make them more transparent or entirely opaque, depending on your desires. These sleeves are rigged for the Legacy Male (regular/Athletic) and Belleza Jake bodies.

I’ve paired these sleeves with DREAMCATCHER’s Metal Rose Nipple Piercings, though they are more like pasties or nipple shields, meant to fully obscure the nipple from view. The mesh work for these is exquisite and while they do offer rigged versions for Legacy F, Maitreya, and Belleza Venus, as you can see they also offer an unrigged version for the rest of us. They’re very easy to adjust, which is a big plus if you’re a derp like me that takes forever to get things situated properly. And they come with a beautifully inclusive HUD that offers 9 different metal textures and hues for both the rose and the attached ring.

Born of Graves

I’ve a tale that time has lost
Sins of judgment born in frost
Then he took a name
For the one profaned
Know the dark but let it rest
Left to lurkers in their quest
Let the watchers fight

Pushing on

We make our own way, we rebuild
The cities razed
Our prophecy is self-fulfilled
For better days
When the broken call
I will stand up tall
It’s all over, there’s change in the air
If we fall tonight
I will shine a light
Upon justice, to make this game fair


It feels like ages since the last time I sat down to write about one of my sponsor’s lovely offerings and for that, I apologize. The last week of October and first week of November had a lot of things happening all at once and I fear it showed in my work. I’ll endeavor to avoid such nonsense in the future as best as I can but sometimes life just gets in the way.

Anyway, that said; Today I’m sporting Nefekalum Tattoos’ newest release – After Darkness. This set is currently available for an absolute steal as their contribution to 11/11’s Humpday sale! So grab it today before the price jumps!

It is available in three different styles – Just the eye makeup – Just the scars – and both eye makeup as well as the scars together. This gives you a wide range of possibilities for one delightfully low price! Even if you can’t grab it today keep an eye out for it to be added to the store officially because Nefekalum Tattoos is notorious for their ridiculously reasonable prices!
