Oh wow, so when did it start being October?! Is anyone else having this feeling of days just ‘whoosh’ing past like so many autumn leaves rustling across the sidewalk? If so, you’ll be happy to realize that you are that much closer to the newest cycle of We <3 Role-Play (We <3 RP). Yes, October ‘We <3’ opens TOMORROW afternoon and I am so so SO excited to be sending my first official preview post to you tonight. Yes, tonight! Huzzah!
I had such a fantastic time putting this picture together, mainly because the result you see above was almost nothing like what I started with last night. I knew as soon as the preview pictures started coming in that I wanted to work with Bee Dumpling’s ‘Invoking Autumn’ gown but it wasn’t until I found the charming flower jewellery from *N*COSMOS that I finally decided on the purple dress. Now, if you’ve peeked at my blog before, you’ll see that I don’t use the colour as often as I could (or really at all) but let me tell you .. I’ve been buying absolutely everything in purple and grey lately, setting it off with hints of gold, green, and white – kind of the way I did in this picture. Crazy, no?
Another important element of this picture is the background. I wanted to start with a relatively dull background so the purple would really stand out; the meadowWorks Gargoyles from this round of We <3 RP are flipping -gorgeous- and I feel like they bring an interesting feel to this setup that is completely enhanced by the dark-wood pavilion from ~*Souzou Eien*~ (~*S.E.*~). I’m hoping to showcase it a little better in a future post. ;)
A friend remarked to me this morning that the build for this picture reminded him of an execution ground and at first I laughed it off – when he started to explain his reasoning, I found myself in complete agreement .. but I wasn’t going to put a gallows in my picture, not if I was already stone-walling the beautiful gothic pavilion. The autumn leaf motif in the gown’s skirt was screaming for more colour in the background. Season-change trees and shrubs from Jian (that you can also pick up at We <3 RP) were a low-LI and pretty solution to the problem. And gosh, I was so excited to bring out the silver sickle I found in an Apple Fall (AF) gacha machine months and months and months ago!
So instead of an execution theme, we ended up with a reaping; kinda creepy with the gargoyles and gothic wood. I amped it up from there with sexy demon-looking hair from Tukinowaguma and if you look very, very closely you should be able to see the succubus claws that fit perfectly on my mesh feet.
