Free gifts and special offer kirtles at Arachne Silks

Lots going on at Arachne Silks at the moment, where they're merchant of the week at the Gorean University. There's a kirtle sale, free boots, and group gift camisks.

Northern girls will love the special offer on kirtles, with a whole bunch of them being marked down to 50L for the promotion, including new-ish releases like Heidi, below.

Another group gift from Soedara! Just a couple of quick shots before you run down to grab your copy (there was some stampede earlier, I can tell you).

Free silks - Blossom freebie and midnight mania

Moor Ravenheart, designer of *Blossom* has left a really nice freebie out at her Isle of Tyros store.

Soedara - Triumph of Ariadne silks line

More Amazing new releases from Soedara - the Triumph of Ariadne range features three kids of silks and a Gorean sirik.

(I'm going to skip over the sirik because this is silks girl, not chains girl, blog!)

I hope you're better at making decisions than I am, because you're going to have to make a lot of them!

Black Friday event - 35L silks, camisks and kirtle at Arachne Silks

There's a great big Black Friday event going on at Arachne silks, with six different ranges all reduced to 35L.

Sale continues until Sunday (27 November) do don't delay.

I grabbed a few quick shots of some little treats I picked up. (The backdrop, by the way, is an Arachne Minuette dance prop. But they also make mighty fine photo props!)

Roawenwood - 60L weekend sale - Isolda silks in Ice

Sales in Second Life can be a great way to grab some new gear, without making too huge of a dent in your Linden allowance.

The Sixty Linden Weekends have a huge mix of merchants. I always run to check the latest photo backgrounds from PNP and see if there's nice hair on offer from Ava-Tare.

Roawenwood are back in the 60L groove with this gorgeous offering, the Isolda silk in white.

Rag Dollz - Requiem for Arwen gown

This outfit must officially qualify as 'vintage'... it's a Lord of the Rings Inspired gown from Rag Dollz.

I'm happy with how the pics turned out, so I'll let them speak for themselves.

FallnAngel Creations - Roxi silks (black set free on lucky chair!)

I love silks from FallnAngel Creations. Aside from how beautifully baroque they almost inevitably are, they're so easy to fit as they're mostly on clothing layers. So, yay!

These are the Roxi silks, and if you haunt the FallnAngels silks lucky chair, you might be lucky enough to win the set in black.

Racist abuse in Second Life

I'm not Asian, but my default avatar is.

Why some people might get a kick out of calling me an 'asian whore' - when I'm wearing a medieval gown! - I don't know.

Unfortunately mindless cretins like this exist in SL as well as RL.

I've reported the three sub-humans and will be in contact with the sim owner to ask how they propose to deal with this behaviour on their sim.

Soedara - Goddess Nyx silks

Nyx, the Greek goddess of night, is an elusive figure in mythology, but considered "a figure of exceptional power and beauty".

Any girl wanting to pay tribute to the mysterious night and to steal a little of that magic for herself could do worse than take a look at Sodeara's Nyx silks.

(Dodgy pasties are my photoshopping, they don't come with the silk!!)

Second Moon - Mirror Cage II mix'n'match

It was like all my Christmases come at once when this little beauty popped up in my inventory, courtesy of Moonriver Darcy!

You possibly already know the original Mirror Cage set - well, Moonriver has re-invented it in enchanting shades of green and aqua, paired with silver accessories.

Demons and Angels - Viking Princess outfit

This is an interesting outfit for sure - I came across it on the marketplace when I was searching for silks.

It's by fantasy outfitters Piper Shan Designs, otherwise known as Demons and Angels, and it's called 'Viking Princess'.

I really like it, but I can't see it being suitable for a kajira, and I doubt it would pass as a kirtle (what do you think?).

However, I'm sure some Elven huntresses or warrior maidens could put it to some very good use!

35L Sunday at Arachne Silks IV: Aurora silks

Another chance to stock up for less courtesy of Arachne Silks!

This week's featured set is Aurora, which as you can see from the pic is quite a skimpy little number!

Soedara - Dancer of 3 Moons white seduction silk (50% off!)

Another fantastic silk from Marbella Pronovost of Soedara - and thewhite set is half price for a short time only.

The silk may be white and unpatterened... but it's about as far from plain as you can get!

Tian Xia Hui - HuoDie Chinese outfit

What I love about Tian Xia Hu's roleplay oufits is that they're so much FUN.

Take the HuoDie outfit for instance -which is part the the 60L weekend sales today and tomorrow - it's super-sassy and ridiculously cute.

You've got fur and boots to keep you warm... and plenty of skin on show means everyone will feel the heat!

Second moon - Exquisite Beauty lehenga choli

This outfit isn't new... it's just another one of Moonriver Darcy's stunning creations!

This beautiful black and gold lehenga is part of Moonriver's Exquisite Beauty line, all of which use the same textures.

(Wikipedia explains that the gagra or lehenga choli is the traditional clothing of Rajasthan and Gujarat... choli is the top, lehenga the skirt, and the shoulder drape is a dupatta.)

Solange! - Innocence silks

Yay! A brand new release from Solange.

This beguilingly feminine silk has been a long time in the making - the official release notecard says it's a remake of one of Solange's very first silks, and she's been waiting to complete it for five years.

Quality designs - Shanaya silks

I saw this silk on the marketplace the other day and thought "hmmm, that looks nice".

Then I went to the store, and thought 'wow'!

Quality designs specialise in medieval and celtic clothing, so you'll find lots of gowns and other outfits. I was very impressed and there are definitely a couple of outfits calling me back.

In the meantime, here's one of their newest offerings, the Shanaya silk.

Bella Luna fashion - Winsome in plum

Ooh, I like this look. Makes me feel all Cate Blanchett-y.

Anyways, I have to admit I shamelessly ripped off this outfit from Elayne Diavolo. Not literally of course, but I'm that sort of thing must happen in the rougher sims.

Dream Things - New avatar gift pack (silks, camisk and gown)

Hmm, maybe I'm a bit slow on the uptake today, but I only noticed when I uploaded these pics that all the outfits are in different tones of purple - lavenders, lilacs, plums and grapes.

It gives the gift pack a little extra 'something' - it sits together like a mini-fashion collection.

Pia of Dream Things has got all bases covered with this gift too - there's a camisk, set of silks and a gown, so if you haven't quite figured out your RP station in life, at least you can experiment in style!

Darkly Delicious Hunt - Any colour so long as it's black!

It's Darkly Delicious Hunt time again and some wonderful merchants are participating. I've (very quickly) photographed some of the free outfits you can win below.

Other prizes include a skin from Whatz, gothic-y tiara from Inspired Designs, and chocolate fondue set for two from Roawenwood! Mmm!

There are some exclusions in the sale - gowns in the weddings section, kids clothes, newest releases, and the vintage section (where everything is under 150L anyway).

Elegantly Yours - Formal silks on the MM board

There's a new set of silks - pink! - on the the board tonight, but here's what last night's lovely prize looked like (it might come up again soon).

But if you do decide to buy it - at 200L it's a good price!

Delicious - Maharani silks and new group gift Olimpia camisk

I'm a little bit behind on my Delicious!

There's been several intriguing releases from the team lately... and just like yesterday's post featuring a sari from Falln, there's an Indian theme to tonight's offering.

The silks are called Maharani, after the historic queens of India, and I chose the delicous, spicy tangerine colour.

Shack freebies - free silks, camisk and 'huntress' outfit

If you missed these great freebies from The Shack, now you have another chance to pick them up, at Port Haifa!

I'm guessing they'll be out for a week, but don't take any chances.

Run, don't walk, and grab your gift box. (Also some gifties for men!)

FallnAngel Creations - silks/dress, kimono and sari/lehenga on midnight mania

There are some amazing prizes, just put out last night, on the November MM boards at FallnAngel Creations.

I love this outfit, which can be worn in many different ways,  including as silks. You'll have so much fun with it!
Falln 'Aeris' outfit orange
It's got several skirt options, two top options, a corset, and net gloves and stockings. Pictured above is with 'everything on'.
