“Don’t tell a girl with fire in her veins and hurricane bones what she should and shouldn’t do. In the blink of an eye, she will shatter that ridiculous cage you attempt to build around her beautiful bohemian spirit.”

Sheer Repetition

My first post — alright, we call ’em articles on this blog — and Harper asked me to help her fix something she missed.

Well, it wasn’t really obvious, I’ll say that. Harper stumbled across the dress under the coat I’m wearing when she went over a sales blog, and found it listed in a different location from the coat. Turns out they’re part of a set, really, but at two different sales. She asked me to model the proper set, if I was interested, and I said sure.

And it’s a lovely combination; the colors can be changed around to match or clash as you want with the HUDs, and you can have the metallic feathers either above or below, or both! Then there’s the dress …. I’d really encourage you to wear the coat, and some pantyhose under the dress, just as a precaution, because this dress is somehow on the sheer side. It still rocks, though; just revealing enough to make a noob like me cautious, but fantastically nice anyway.

Feathers and Shine On the Giant’s Causeway

In the north of Ireland is a stretch of basalt columns known as the Giant’s Causeway, formed by a volcanic eruption. As the lava cooled while welling up from the ocean floor, it formed itself into hexagonal pillars that stretch out some meters from the actual coast itself. The locals, however, would have it different — they will tell you that the rocks are the remains of a bridge, rubble from the nearby coast which was dropped there by the Irish giant Finn mac Cumhaill to make a road to Scotland, there to fight an enemy. ‘Tis said that, on finding that the Scot was twice as large as he was, he beat a strategic retreat back to Ireland, where he was hidden, disguised as a baby. When the Scot discovered the “baby,” and saw his size, he had to reckon that Finn must be of a monstrous size indeed, and legged it home himself, tearing up the causeway behind him.

We picked up a fragment of the Causeway in Second Life, in a corner of Rustic Retreat, a fantasy-themed region that I investigated today. You can almost imagine giants and fae here ….
