Ethnicity in SL


ray of light (click here for a raw shot)

The definition of Luxuria is lust or sexual desire. Personified as one of the deadly sins, it is also the name of a store in Second Life owned by Roslin Petion.

Roslin is a brilliant texture artist and her store is known for sensual lingerie. Great thing is that she also makes appliers for both Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. The body suit I’m wearing in the first two images was only 50L this past Friday. I am not sure if it’s still there and if so, still that price. However, she is having a sale in her store from September 7th-21st, up to 50% off.

Take the SLurl to Luxuria for the sale and remember to follow the Luxuria blog for future updates.


I still have Manberry in his new SLink mesh body so I thought I’d bring him out and let him play with Berry a bit. I can’t wait to buy him some more clothing that’ll work well with the body. I’m keeping my eye on the Slink Avatar Enhancement Creations flickr group!


I busted out the Stella mesh head from LeLutka again for these pictures because Deetalez just released some very pretty appliers for them. In the first two images I am wearing the Paige applier and in the last image I’m wearing the Chloe applier. Both are available at the Deetalez mainstore now.

The gorgeous headpiece and necklace I am wearing are both from the Forge. I just cannot resist detailed pieces like this. They are such a delight to play around with and photograph. I must own them all! The necklace is part of the Forge Boho Summer collection which was released back in July at the Epiphany gacha. I am not sure if it’s at the mainstore now. The headpiece is actually called Singh facechains (I LOVE that name! :P) and is currently available at the Fantasy Collective.

I had a lot of fun taking these images over the weekend. A big thank you to all the content creators for making such delightful things that keep me entertained. <3
