Simploring 2018 (106) :nostos:deer:

For my simploring tour on Thursday, December 6th, I picked :nostos:deer: from scoop.it SL Destinations, mainly because there was not much information about it. The landmark description didn’t reveal much neither, a list of tags that fits to store: “Yard, Sale, Gacha, Gift, Church, mountain, Sea, beach, Boathouse, Lighthouse, embankment, Canoe, river, Salmon, marsh, Snow, rain, Furniture, house, Rosary, Rosario, Nature, garden, resort, Japan, Nippon, Nihon, swan boat“. But the picture on scoop.it SL Destinations looked nice.

:nostos:deer: overview

:nostos:deer: is an island, actually two islands that are connected by a bridge. :nostos:deer: is owned by owner dora Nacht and as far as I could find out also by her partner hide Mint. The landing is at a lonely train station. The train takes you from the station to the other end of the island. The railroad tracks lead further to a broken bridge and at it’s end there’s a train blocking the way into the sea. The train I took turned before reaching the broken brige and brought me back to the station.

Impressions of :nostos:deer: (1) – The train

The train travels slowly, you can leave it easily by stepping out and continue exploring on foot, which I did. The island is really meagre and there’s not that much to see: A lovely beach, a beach bar, a lighthouse and a residential house. An old railroad trail winds up in serpentines to a mountain and on the top of the the mountain is a church. The church is quite interesting as it is so different from the many churches I saw in Second Life.

Impressions of :nostos:deer: (2)

Right across the bridge connecting the two islands is the entrance to what looks like a mine. Actually it is a teleporter that takes you to a platform in the skies. The platform is the show space for a store, “Little Hopper”. As far as I could find out, the store offers a lot of everything, amoung other items bumper cars. You can try them out on the platform. It is fun! From the platform you can walk down to the store itself. “Little Hopper” sells the swan paddle boat that I have seen so many times already on my simploring tours. You can get an overview about the items sold by Litte Hopper on the marketplace here.

Impressions of :nostos:deer: (3) – lower left is the teleport from the Island to “Little Hopper”, lower right is the entrance to the store

I returned back to the island and exploring the second island. Again, there’s not that much to discover either: A compfire with chairs for kids (funny to sit on them as an adult – just as funny as in RL), I saw a lonely deer and I found a peer with several swan boats.

Impressions of :nostos:deer: (4) – bumper cars, the store, the kid’s campfire, meeting the deer

Now after exploring :nostos:deer: I assume that :nostos:deer: is the island with the train. The second island is dedicated to the store “Little Hopper”. I looked up the profiles of dora Nacht and hide Mint. They are both from Japan.

Impressions of :nostos:deer: (5)

:nostos:deer: convinces with it’s simplicity. Some places offer nice views and invite to stay. The train is funny and trying out the bumper cars is fun. Now I also know the origin of the swan boats in Second Life. Thank you dora and hide for providing the :nostos:deer: to the public. I enjoyed my visit!

Simploring 2018 (104) Lullaby by Cica Ghost

On Tuesday, December 11th, I got an invitation from Cica to see her newest installation “Lullaby” that opened that very day. Spontaneously I visited “Lullaby by Cica Ghost” right away.

Lullaby by Cica Ghost – advertising poster, overview and Cica’s snail

Lullaby is once again a meagre hilly island with some steep single rocks and rock arches which reminded me of Monument Valley in Utah, US. But when you keep the windlight setting, wich I did except for the overview zoom out picture, the rocks are not red but the whole scenery is in dark greeen and blue colours.

There’re again fantasy animals and bugs living at Lullaby. Some of them have similarities with real animals and bugs. Right next to the landing point is a huge snail with large telescope eyes. Bugs will fly around you during your visit. They are huge as well and they have a trunk, cute!
If you’re not alone at Lullaby you might see other visitors flying around sitting on bugs. You can’t sit on the bugs flying around you, but you can get a bug to sit on and to fly around with on the top of one of the steep single rocks. You can keep the bug as a gift by the way and probably scare someone using it on other sims *winks*.

Impressions of Lullaby by Cica Ghost (1)

Most of Cica’s animals at Lullaby are stationary, maybe a particular kind of worms. What you see is there heads and the big “Cica”-eyes. They are scary only on the first glance. After you’re settled in into the scenery, they look harmless and peaceful. One of them though opens it’s mouth, ready for eating you. No worries, the mouth is spacious enough and will open again, so that you can leave again.

Impressions of Lullaby by Cica Ghost (2)

Quite in the center of Lullaby, is one arch with a house. On the roof sits a “Cica”-girl with wide opened eyes. The girl is very pale and she looks a but scared. She fits to the poem Cica Ghost quoted in the landmark description for Lullaby:

“Another day goes by
And I don’t wash my hair
Another night is spent
Wishing you were here
My skin it looks so pale
What’s that over there?”

from “Lullaby For An Insomniac” by Kate Nash

Impressions of Lullaby by Cica Ghost (3)

More animals? Yes! A large teddy bear, a butterfly and a spider. The spider can be found close to the arch with the house and nearby you’ll see the spider net.

I had fun exploring Lullaby. Somehow Cica’s animals became friends of mine in the meanwhile. I look at them to see all details and am not scared. At Lullaby, the animals became part of the island. They’re integrated into the hilly landscape an into the steep single rocks. Lullaby is a fantasy world, a world to retreat and to let your mind wander. And the animals never sleep, even when they look asleep – insomniacs.

Impressions of Lullaby by Cica Ghost (4)

I searched to find one of Cica’s cats hidden at Lullaby, but I didn’t find it. Cica Always hides one of her cats somewhere in her installations. Maybe the cat digged a hole and is hidding in it? Maybe the cat is even sleeping in the hole surrounded by a sleepless world of insomniacs? If you find the cat, let me know please.

Thank you for another great installation, Cica. Once again, I enjoyed seeing your art a lot.

Diary 2018 (214) Nov 30th / Dec 1st – naughty Maurer’s

Jenny and I had a great afternoon, Friday November, 30th. We tested the new Real Restraints Police collar and went to “Atlas de sade D/s” and “Atlas Steam & Sensuality”, a club we never visited before. It was quite empty there, so we could explore it and test the new collar feature of zapping the sub and restricting the vision when the sub doesn’t stay close enough to the owner, a very nice new feature. Then we went to our skybox and we had some togetherness (no picture of course *winks)

Virgo had sent an offline IM that she will run late for our Friday night party. Before we left that afternoon we talked about the theme for the party and agreed to the right mood for the season, for the snow and the advent. Hence we choose shiny all white or red and white as the theme.

November 30th: Jenny and Diomita visiting “Atlas Stean & Sensuality” (upper left) / Della, Starry and Fox dancing (lower left) / Jenny, Diomita and slave Flo dancing (lower middle and right)

The party began without Virgo, but we had fun nonetheless and listened to a radio channel. And Virgo showed up shortly before midnight, just in time to play our traditional midnight puff puff song.

Saturday, December 1st, Jenny and I visited Heavy Bondage Club and Puerto Esclava in the afternoon. slave Flo joined us at Puerto Esclava. After celebrating her 5th anniversary and after all the leeway she got in the time before, it was about time to get her tied up and restricted again. I thightened her corset as much as possible and added a hood, gag and blindfold. And I locked her legirons and cuffs. She looks great like this. Our (and her) fun can begin, as I intend to increase her restrictions using the police collar and all the other fine possibilities of RLV.

December 1st: Jenny and Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club / at Puerto Esclava with slave Flo

At night Jenny was in a naughty mood. And she infected me. I had an invitation for an “island warming party” at Nylon Island, a ladies only sim, and as the name implies a sim particulary for those with a kink for nylons. I got the invitation from Heather Luna-Kilmister (heatherluna), a co-owner of Nylon Island.

We both dressed sexually explicit including nylons of course. Unfortunately the party hadn’t really started. We spent some time there teasing eachother and dancing, then we moved on to Babylon Berlin. We should return to Nylon Island and do some kinkploring another time. While we were dancing at Babylon Berlin, Jenny talked me into wearing my police collar and she put on hers as well.

December 1st: Jenny and Diomita at Nylon Island and at Babylon Berlin

We left the keys out and went to club Domme a Domme to seek some fun together. It was full at club Domme a Domme and we were close to get into trouble but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. Hence we visited our slut cecy, who had come inworld in the meanwhile, at Psi’s realm and then we retreated to our loft to get our naughty desires fulfilled (no pictures of this part).

Simploring 2018 (102) Celeste Sanct

Inspired by a picture that I saw at scoop.it SL Destinations I decided to visit “celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}“. On scoop.it SL Destinations was just one picture and a text in Japanese … nothing more. The picture looked quite interesting and photogenic, showing a lonely place in winter but the landmark description did sound more like a description of a store “High Quality Adult Furniture + landscaping & Fashion for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink & Signature“. So what’s behind it?

The whaling station at “celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}”

celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}” is an abandoned whaling station. It is lonely and exploring it is fun. In the few living quartes you find just some chairs, a sign “Baby it’s cold outside” and yes, christmas decoration!
The facilites are empty but the huge chimney is smoking. That’s it, besides two empty storage silos and an half sunken trawler. Just what you’d expect from an abandoned whaling station in the middle of cold nowhere – yet very photogenic.
There’s no shop, at least I didn’t find one. “celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}” is owned by Chania Leuce (cheekichica). It is a full adult sim. There must be something in the skies as the rezzed prims dont’t correspond with what you see. And there is! I found out later that there’s a big inworld store in the skies.

3 sim overview: The whaling station between “Runaway’s Gulf Coast Retreat” and “Mistletoe Lodge & Ski Resort”

I looked around and zoomed out and found that there’re two adult homesteads adjacent to “celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}“, one is “Runaway’s Gulf Coast Retreat – Thunderstorms“, the other is “Mistletoe Lodge & Ski Resort“.
I started with exploring “Runaway’s Gulf Coast Retreat – Thunderstorms“. It is a photogenic sim dedicated to storm lovers. You get a notecard upon entering it and Chania Leuce (cheekichica) wrote in it that “this sim is art imitating real life. It is modeled after the South Texas Gulf Coast, USA.” I first used my standard windlight for my visit as the provided windlight is quite dark, later I used the provided windlight which gives you the feeling of being in a thunderstorm.

“Runaway’s Gulf Coast Retreat – Thunderstorms” – Impressions with a normal windlight setting

As Chania described it, there’s quite something to explore. The residential homes are all furnished (with style, I liked it!). There’s a large highway around this quite lovely and beautiful beach village, some parts of the highway are flooded, others are covered with sand dunes, just as you expect it after a thunderstorm. The contrast between the highway and the beach village is quite realistic (unfortunately that’s how it is in reality). I enjoyed exploring and visiting “Runaway’s Gulf Coast Retreat – Thunderstorms”.

“Runaway’s Gulf Coast Retreat – Thunderstorms” – Impressions with the provided windlight setting

On the other side of “celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}” is “Mistletoe Lodge & Ski Resort“, a winter skiing arena with a large sky-cab to travel and several lovely decorated and furnished cabins. Once again you get a notecard with some information upon your landing or entering. The cabins are not for rent but free for all to use as a first come first serve basis during your stay.
I traveled with the sky-cab, I had a look into the cabins and I had a sledge ride, which was fun. According to the notecard this sim is only up for a limited time, from now until end of February.

Impressions of “Mistletoe Lodge & Ski Resort” (1)

Chania Leuce (cheekichica) is the owner & Creator of celeste.sanct, which is a store for furniture (with even adult aninations), for decorations, for home and garden and for plants an stuff that you need for creating sims. I only found the store at the marketplace here. But I saw some of the items sold rezzed in these 3 adjacent sims.

Impressions of “Mistletoe Lodge & Ski Resort” (2)

I can only speculate, but I assume that building and creating must be a passion of Chania. The three sims don’t really fit to eachother but are really photogenic and offer a lot to explore. I was surprised that I didn’t find a store (I found it later though) and the name for the whaling station “celeste.sanct // crazy {home + fashion}” is really misleading. I decided to title this simploring tour with “Celeste Sanct” as this is the brand of Chania.

I enjoyed my visit to these 3 sims. And as Chania also wrote in her notecards that the sims are changing, I should visit again some time to see what has changed.
Thank you Chania for providing your space to the public!

Diary 2018 (205) November 18th/19th – at Psi’s realm

Sunday, November 18th, was a varied day in Second Life for me. I came inworld in the morning and met Kitty, who I haven’t seen for quite a while, at Psi’s realm. We found time to talk and catch up. That was a nice start.

November 18th: Diomita with Kitty at Psi’s realm

In the afternoon I made a simploring tour and visited Vespertine, a lovely place build around a shop for home and garden stuff (see yesterday’s post Simploring 2018 (101) Vespertine).
At night, Mistress Jenny and I followed an inviation to celebrated the 15th rezzday of Jopy Weber and the 10th rezzday of illa Quan. Both are friends of ours and they attend our Friday night party quite regularly. The party was well attended and we spent about an hour there following the main chat, reading profiles, we danced and we chatted amoung us – very relayxing.
In the meanwhile slut cecy had come inworld. She was still leashed at the Wall of Shame at Psi’s realm. When slave Flo came inworld, we picked her up at home and went seeing and teasing our slut. As always she was very excited seeing us and being teased in public.

Varied Sunday night, November 18th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Jopy’s and illa’s rezz day party (upper left) / picking up slave Flo (lower left) / visiting slave slut cecy at Psi’s realm / Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme

After the visit we returned home and had just one round of greedy with slave Flo, who left for bed after the game. Mistress and I went to club Domme a Domme and got some more eye candy before we went to bed ourselves. Quite a varied Sunday.

Monday afternoon, November 19th, Mistress Jenny and I took slave kelly to Psi’s realm and Mistress had fun teasing slave kelly and to make her serving her well. We didn’t have much time but we enjoyed it.

November 19th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave kelly at Psi’s realm

Monday night Mistress Jenny was absent due to her RL. When I came back inworld at night, I met with Angelique and slave kelly. Angelique had been in her white outfit for several days now already and I selected a new and sexy outfit for her.
We were about to visit a club when Rye Falmer came by and visited us. I met Rye when I visited his sim Meadow Rose in September (read here). We had a nice chat and he might come and join our Friday night party soon. slave kelly was very excited by the idea that she might be allowed to serve Rye when he comes by again and asks for it.

November 19th: Diomita, Angelique, slave kelly and slave kelly meeting Rye (upper left) / Diomita and Angelique at home with slave kelly and slave Flo (right picture) / Diomita with slave kelly and slave Flo visiting our slut cecy at Psi’s realm

When slave slut cecy came inworld, I took slave kelly and slave Flo with me to visit our slut. Angelique stayed at home and went to bed.
We had some fun at Psi’s realm. I allowed slave kelly to tend to my boots and later I even allowed her to kiss my butt. slave Flo did tease our slut cecy in the meanwhile. It was really full that night and there was some public chatting too. Of course our play didn’t stay unnoticed and that added a lot to slut’s and slave kelly’s excitement. In particular Pamela (Pamela Emmons) joined teasing slut cecy and made some valuable proposals for diapers for our always dripping slut. I was not convinced as I’d perfer installing a drain at Psi’s realm *winks*

And that’s it for this diary entry 🙂

slave Flo collared 5 (!) years

For slave Flo’s 4th collaring anniversary last year I researched in our blog about her first days and months with us, how we kidnapped her, kept her and enslaved her. You can find this story here. Today marks slave Flo’s 5th collaring anniversary. Incredible how time flies!

November 29th, 2018: Our slave Florence is collared 5 years

Slave Flo is to some extent the good soul in our D/s family. She’s responsible (and accountable) for the housekeeping and she does it with great devotion. slave Flo is also our head slave and being it she’s approachable for her sister slaves or for new applicants be it advising them or helping them. And she’s complaining almost always, about her hurting knees, about the workload at the house, about her bones aching when we keep her restrainted, about her vision when we apply a hood, about her restrictions and about everything. It’s not always easy to distinguish her complaints from hints to be tied up again. Secretly she enjoys her restraints and restrictions but she would never admit it.

5 years is a long time in Second Life and slave Flo has become an important part of our family. We’re happy to own her and look forward to own her for many years to come. Happy collaring anniversary, slave Flo!

Simploring 2018 (101) Vespertine

For my simploring tour on Sunday, November 18th, I picked Vespertine from scoop.it SL Destinations because of the nice and colourful pictures I saw. The landmark description of Vespertine did already give away what to expect: “deco, home, garden, skyboxes, prefabs, shopping, autumn, relax, nature, original mesh“.
Vespertine is a store for the products listed in the landmark description. The store and the sim is owned by dead inside (amelie knelstrom).

Vespertine overview

Vespertine is a homestead. I first zoomed out for an overiew. The sim is dominated by the store which takes most of the available space. It is embedded in a really nice, colourful surrounding, that is worth a visit for it’s own.

Impressions of Verspertine (1)

Vespertine consists of 2 islands. The main island is occupied by the store. You land outside at the entrance of the store and can either decide to visit the store or to explore the smaller island. I explored the smaller island first. It offers some nice places to sit and it offers great views because of the foliage – a perfect place to take pictures. At the end of the smaller island you can take a ride with a paddleboat, which I did.

Impressions of Verspertine (2)

Then I explored the store. It offers home and garden decorations. I have seen a lot of it’s stuff already during my simploring tours. Hence in some respect it was a deja-vu for me. Vespertine also offers prefabs and skyboxes. I have seen at least the greenhouses, that are sold there, before at other places. And also the summer ice cream truck, which seems to be quite popular. From the store you can take a teleporter to a rezzing area where you can see the prefabs and skyboxes by temporarily rezzing them.
I really enjoyed poking around in the store. That’s another shopping experience. You get ideas by looking at the stuff and it is presented in a very appealing way.

Impressions of Verspertine (3)

I appreciate it a lot when shopping is not limited to the marketplace and I like it even more when shop owners present their stuff thoughtfully and when they provide a nice surrounding for visitors. Particularly for a home and garden store that’s fitting. Dead inside (amelie knelstrom) made this effort and I enjoyed my visit to the store as well as the outside. Vespertine is really a great place for photographers.

Thank you dead inside (amelie knelstrom) for adding this nice place around your store.
