Take me to Jodhpur

Take me to Jodhpur

The Arcade Gacha Events returns March 1st and Zaara is taking us all to Jodhpur, India this round. Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is often referred to as the “Blue City” due to the vivid blue-painted houses that surround the infamous Mehrangarh Fort.

It is one of these blue houses that Zaara has so lovingly built for us to enjoy, along with a selection of furnishings and decor items that resonate with the colors of Jodhpur.

You can’t really see the blue color of the house that well in my pictures, so make sure to check out Zaara’s Flickr to see all of the images in detail and you can also click over to her plurk where she shared some real life images that she took herself when she visited Jodhpur and got inspired by it.

I also found this very beautiful video on The World of Travel youtube channel that shows more of the beauty of Jodhpur.

Zaara Kohime’s work has been inspiring my pictures for many years but now her work also inspires me to travel and see more of the world. Jodhpur is now on my list of must-see cities!

Click over to the Arcade Shopping Guide’s page of Zaara’s items this round to see full details of this set, how much it is and the exact SLurl to the machine which will start working when they open their doors on the 1st of March. Before then, you can take the SLurl to the Zaara mainstore to see a version of this home rezzed with all of the furnishings.

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →

I need some TLC

(click here for a raw shot) I picked up a DEMO of the SLink Visage mesh heads when they were released last week and had decided not to purchase because I didn’t feel like myself in them.

The Book Meme

(click here to see raw shot, I actually prefer it) Usually when I’m feeling down, the first thing I tend to grab is some chocolate and a favorite book that I’ll sit and read to distract myself and get my mind off things. I’ve been doing that a lot lately and figured a book meme […] Continue reading →
