Darkadia, now with extra inspiration.

An Orientalist Fantasy Framed
Eliza Maiman & DeNovo Broome in the Shibari Garden

I'm wearing the LW Tranceptor 2013 - having shed some parts and added a classic Plausible Body "Opacity" underlayer in red. (50%, I think) Thanks to the lighting it's almost modest and the colour is off, but I love matching the cherry-blossoms to my own.

 PB's Open Pricing model gave me my first favorite set of go-to latex, I still have it, still use it and still drag newbs there. Roslynd Turbo runs it and is one of the quietly generous people who make SL worthwhile.

"Get this, this, that, those pumps go with everything, tip the nice jar," I say as I slip another hundred or so in myself. And as you see, it still rocks - it's not so much latex as it seems to be skin-tight tight vinyl, but I like that.

It complements so many other outfits. And they do have many! Goddess, it's mix and match heaven, just like Latex Web.

 Eliza is wearing the Bamboo Blue Kimono by Rag Dollz.. RD is Eliza's favorite place in the whole of Second Life and I frequent it myself. They seem to have something for any possible situation or RP - even for the likes of me, though it's depressingly G-Rated. As you can see, their Kimono are quite good; I have one too. A Kimono AO is a good investment and it will complement many Latex Web outfits.

 Do remember to ensure that you have panties on when you go to Rag Dollz Island! I must admit I've forgotten, mis-remembering that a particular outfit. I was wearing had a system skirt and did NOT include panties! Thank you, Bhadra! Blush!

 This was shot in the Shibari Garden on the roof of the new club at Darkadia, I'm about to upload it to SL and hang it in the club.

As promised, as hinted, as teased - the new Latex Web High Gloss Catsuit and more!

A Brand New Shine

A Brand New ShineThe new Latexweb "shine" is, I think comparable to any other designer in SL, if not an entirely new standard. No, that's not hype - if I have a single, predominant visual kink, it's "shine," and I'm picky.

It's being released in parallel with a version of the Gwen hood - and the mouth-gag-plug toy has been moved right to the front of the store. Could that be a hint about a good look for aspirant drones?

I honestly can't say but I am sure that  they will be treasured additions to your collection.

I have rocked the new shine in pictures and seen it from every angle.

It's now a standard and I can't wait for more colours - which are promised. The first will be the transparent catsuit with a matching gloss.

I'm the Oni Demon Here 3

Here's something we have seen, on and off at LWI for a year or more now as a dreadful tease is FINALLY in the venders. I expect to find this in RLV folders soon!

  The Gummi Sack

At 400L, need I even word this as a hint? Well, yes. I should because I'm not a paydomme, - but I'm sure you have paid more to get less. It's something you would have expected to have to go to Hybridz for - but at home, supporting your favorite sim.

Edit: More on this from Mai, via her personal blog.

A little something to explore at Darkadia.

In the unopened club in Darkadia, there's a small telepad - and a chance to explore and play with Eve Light's Morphing Home. This is one of several options. Doesn't that bed look inviting? Why don't you invite someone - or sometwo? You'd be amazed at what poking all the different buttons will reveal.

Patience and Duty

"Patience and Duty" by M. DeNovo Broome

Darkadia isn't even officially open yet and I'm already inspired. This one turned out well enough that I made prints at Deviant Art.  I'm finally getting confident and patient enough with Firestorm's camera tools and my various image editing apps that I'm coming up with files that are genuinely worth hanging on your RL wall.

Although perhaps this one belongs in the boudoir... well, no, it's quite tasteful in it's charged and sexual way. Perhaps in the bar, or the billiards room.

My aim here is not to sell you prints (not that I'd mind if you bought one) it's to prove that it's possible to make salable, art quality, astonishingly beautiful artwork in SL and  that it can be and should be done at Darkadia! It's a strong suggestion that you should.... Mai. But not JUST her.

You as well, dear reader, you as well! "Why this is art, nor are you out of it!"
It seems appropriate to misquote Faust here...

SL is a wonderful medium for serious art, more and more are doing it as in-world decor and as a way of making physical "Legitimate Art."

That's a nonsensical concept, of course, but those are the sorts of words a girl has to use to get to the wine and cheese party. And in that vein.. or vain... we have two groups in which we brag. There's the original, Artists of Darkadia on Flickr. And now, we have a group on Deviant Art - The-Art-Of-Darkadia. Please do follow both and if you are an artist - we do hope you would like to contribute.

But if you are not an artist - S&m often stands for Stand and Model.

A Big Step For Dee

My New Gallery (pg image)
My new space at The Fetish Lounge Mall, surrounded with other adult artists and creative designers. Bhadra's Fetish shop is just a few steps down the hall.
Taken at Fetish Lounge Mall, Lost Dreams Exclusive (126, 137, 4001)
I got a call from Bhadra to come to her shop and move my book vender - there had been a thing with land ownership and everyone needed to move suddenly.

In the process, this storefront - surrounded by other artists in an high-traffic fetish mall - became available. It's right at the teleport point. I could not overlook what an opportunity this was. I thought about it, dithered, looked to see who was online, decided to wait and ask others what they thought, slapped myself and let my impulse rule. For if I think too hard about the risks of selling myself, I will never do it.

But I would not object to some company in this space!

Chic Magnet Show
Works featuring
Smooching Serpents
products at Villareal.
Many thanks to Eve Light
for the use of this marvellous space. 
Darkadian Retrospective
An retrospective exhibit of works
I've created in Darkadia
featuring the native scenery and designs.
I  was surprised to see how difficult
it was to choose between the
artworks I had created here. 
Thinking that the products of my elegant perversions are worth framing and putting on sale is a bit scary. But it's the proper next step. It's really the only proper response to two very public kicks in the ass encouragements by very dear friends.

It's a step I may no longer avoid, for I do indeed have "a body of work," things that are not merely good enough to get by, or illustrate a blog, or perhaps engorge the nether parts due to the virtue (ahem) of the acts depicted, but because they are beautiful or say something I feel to be genuinely important.

Tunnel Vision
One of my more recent works, available in real life as a print through my Deviant Art account which I created after Mai Nijan wore me down.
Some contents of these galleries - particularly the books on display at Chic Magnet in Villareal - are not merely NSFW, they are intended to grasp you by the genitals and focus your attention on ideas I wish you to consider while in an vulnerable state.

I would of course love for you to visit each exhibit - they feature different works, and not all are yet for sale. But they will be, and of course if you let me know, I will gladly put the one you love on the top of my pile.

The works I do have for sale are the same everywhere, so please consider buying at Darkadia because a portion of the sale goes to rewarding those who have created so much inspiration for us all.

A significantly different version of this story was also posted at Brigadoon Station.

New Art begets New Art

An Moist and Fluid Fate

 I am learning to embrace change - though it is never comfortable for me, it does bring new beauties inspire me So we have new things to share with you. Like this new artwork, which you will be able to see in my new gallery area in the tower. (Just teleport to the Tower and walk up one level.)

These images were shot as I swam about in the new Hydrophidan area beneath the store. You are encouraged to explore, but to do so properly you will really need a Naiad outfit and a Mermaid AO.

If you happen to make latex mermaid outfits - or even more conventional ones - don't be shy about shooting here. But please let us know you have so we may know, admire and share.
