Beautiful Mess

BeautifulMess

Seraphim lives in a home she built herself. It’s nothing fancy, just really spacious, because she likes being surrounded by all the beautiful things she collects…

BeautifulMess2

… her most treasured item is these two guys… they were the first gacha she ever played, they are the ‘rare’, and she was only after them, and she won them first spin… she absolutely adores these guys…

BeautifulMess3

… she has been a fairly addicted gacha player, ever since, because there’s just so much cool ‘stuff’ to win!… she has a lot of kiwi’s, because her human is from New Zealand, and she shares her human’s pride in being a ‘kiwi’…

BeautifulMess4

… this ‘little brown kiwi’ is probably her fave…

BeautifulMess5

… she also has many dolls, because she just loves them…

BeautifulMess6

… she has many cat-themed treasures, her absolute favourite is this pink ‘kitty in a balloon’, which, of course, is a ‘rare’… she (pink kitty) cruises around Seri’s living area, in her little pink balloon, her flight-path is very erratic, and she leaves a little trail of flame from her balloon’s burner, and she lets out the occasional meow, all of which totally melts Seri’s cat-loving heart…

BeautifulMess7

… Seraphim also loves good neon…

BeautifulMess8

… amongst other stuff.

 

Studio Time

RioSisco

Having read about RioSisco Studio Pictures on Inara Pey’s blog, Seraphim decided to go and see it herself. The first thing she loved was the dramatic scale juxtapositions, from the tiny…

RioSisco2

… to the gargantuan. The two avis sitting on the roof are Seri’s fellow bloggers, Pearl and Klaus. Pearl and Klaus happened to arrive at the sim seconds after Seri, in fact, Pearl landed on Seri’s head. After a brief hello, Pearl and Klaus went one way, and Seri went another, later spotting them on the roof, as she set up this shot…

RioSisco3

… there’s all kinds of fun stuff to see in this build…

RioSisco4

… several species of saurian…

RioSisco5

… a really cool maze that could be used perfectly for something like Alien vs. Predator…

RioSisco6

… if it had been any bigger, Seri could have gotten lost in it…

RioSisco7

… and never found this rain-soaked alley…

RioSisco8

… or this beautiful building.

Snow Queen

SnowQueen

When Seraphim first arrived in ‘Winter Hollow’, this morning, she found the windlight a bit harsh, and tried to create something better, but she couldn’t quite match it, so went back to it… and it quite grew on her. The pallet is almost monochromatic in it’s washedout-ness…

SnowQueen2

… and, by pure fluke, matched Seri’s colours beautifully…

SnowQueen3

… she soon found herself loving this winter landscape and it’s muted pinks/blues/greys, and the silently falling snow…

SnowQueen4

… there are actually a lot of buildings/structures in this sim, Seri had to go out of her way to create these ‘silent wilderness’ images…

SnowQueen5

… often, there are structures just out of the frame…

SnowQueen6

… but she much preferred the empty, silent, snow-blanketed-forest look.

Pandume

Seraphim doesn’t have many ‘friends’, she seldom accepts ‘friend’ requests… she believes a ‘friend’ is someone who actually thinks about you, and who contacts you occasionally… who actually wants to talk to you and, even more rarely, hang out with you… if she accepts your ‘friend’ request, then you never talk to her, unless she contacts you, first, after a few months, she’ll ‘unfriend’ you, because you were never her friend, were you…

Panny

… her three closest friends are Zoey, Luna, and Pandume… these three are the friends who she actually hung out with, who actually shared stuff with her, went places with her… there was a time when the four of them were always together. Unfortunately, unlike Seraphim, who is very much a creature of disciplined routine, her friends are not, and they are often absent from SL for long periods of time, Luna and Pandume in particular. Pandume has a castle, just down the road from Seraphim, and, although Pandume has been absent from SL for months, as she does, Seraphim regularly visits her castle, just to make sure it’s still there… today, she had, literally, just walked in, when Pandume logged on!…

Panny2

… Seri was delighted to see her lovely, succubus friend, again…

Panny3

… Seri told Pandume how much the neighbourhood had changed, since she was last here, and about how she’d been coming here, regularly, all the time Pandume was gone, just to make sure it was still here, and to just be here, because she loves Pandume’s place…

Panny4

… it was so nice seeing her, again, and so trippy that she’d appeared, just as Seri walked in (:

 

Fusion

Fusion

Seraphim took time from her work on ‘Whimsical Eclectic’, to visit the Fusion sim…

Fusion2

… she found a beautiful, very Asian-themed sim…

Fusion3

… with pretty, industrial/commercial spaces…

Fusion4a

… and items by many of her favourite creators, lovingly incorporated into the general aesthetic…

Fusion5

… the whole sim has a clean, modern look/feel…

Fusion6

… with traditional elements mixed in…

Fusion7

… Seraphim particularly liked all the vintage posters…

Fusion8

… Fusion is a beautiful, elegant work.

Drune: East of Eden

Drune

Today, Seraphim visited the latest Drune iteration. The first thing she noticed was her profile picture, without her permission, up on the over-head display… she couldn’t care less, but found the lack of etiquette pretty disappointing…

Drune2

… the sim was, like previous Drune sims, a glory of neon eye-candy…

Drune3

… also, like the previous Drunes, there was the juvenile obsession with sexual themes…

Drune4

… as though the sim was built by genius 13 year-old boys…

Drune5

… whose sophisticated visual aesthetic was continually over-ridden by their desire to masturbate…

Drune6

… but, when she thought about it, Seri had to admit that this is a fairly common phenomenon in SL…

Drune7

… and, that if you have to have sims built by wankers…

Drune8a

… the wankers might as well be genius 13 year-old boys.
