Tekeli-li Sale!! Hurry!!

I meant to post this much earlier but I got really busy and totally forgot.. but you still have 3 hours to get to Tekeli-li’s 50% off sale before it’s over at midnight!!  And go, seriously go.  I already have a pretty good collection of weapony and jewelry and today I picked up even more stuff including hair, which I hadn’t purchased until now and I must say, I <3 Tekeli-li.  Everything there is absolutely brilliant and the color changing options are so amazing that you can have a totally customized look compared to another person in the same piece.  And omg, they used one of my skins in their ad!!  **happy dance!**  At any rate, I shall cut myself short so I can get this and pictures posted.

Ode to a dead Paladin

I’m mourning the loss of my Retribution Paladin to the the mighty Blizzard nerf bat. /cry I haven’t really loved the Paladin class much at all in the past but I resolved to get her to 70 and it was an uphill battle the whole way. I was Ret for a good bit of the time I was leveling before speccing Protection which made me a decent tank in a pinch. I actually like Pally tanks quite a bit as a healer because I can bubble them. But because my other toons received far more love from me my Pally has never had the best gear so I typically would tank with my Druid. Anyways, long story short, I was just pwning face with my Paladin after I specced Ret again and it was so fun to actually do some serious DPS, even if I was only in a smattering of blues mixed with a few welfare epics. So I am in a deep melancholy over these nerfs. I knew they were coming, but omfg, the nerf to Divine Storm, give me a break!! This is going to make leveling to 80 an absolute pain. I am a sad panda today.

So as a farewell to my dead Paladin.. I made my version of a Paladin in SL. Just in an effort to keep this QQ post somewhat SL related.. and it gave me an excuse to wear this badass outfit from BareRose and awesome horns from Illusions. Yeah, I know, I don’t look like any Paladin in WoW but this is what I wish my Paladin looked like. :P I hope the outfit from BareRose comes out in more colors, it just might be my favorite outfit from there. Oh, I also want to mention the sword, it’s from Tekeli-li which, imho, makes the absolute best weaponry in SL. They are unscripted but I’m not doing epic battle so that’s fine by me. And the prices are absolutely insanely low, especially for the incredible detail, color change options and beauty that you receive. I should also mention that their customer service is top notch. I recently purchased a halbard from OnRez and Tekelili sent me a message letting me know the items were for sale in the shop and promptly refunded me the difference! That is just too cool and so above and beyond the call of duty. :D

Druid

I decided to be a Druid today…. mostly inspired by the AWESOME new horns Siyu Suen of Illusions released the other day. I had a hard time deciding which ones to pick up and I’m sure I’ll be back again. I have a thing for horns and I’ve usually paired them up with kind of a darker look but today I decided to go for a more woodland inspired thing. But I am terrible at writing sometimes so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. At the bottom of the post I have a better picture of the horns and all the options they come with! :D

Swords Part 2

Both sets of sword pictures were inspired by the game Soul Calibur.. specifically, the last set was inspired by Xianghua and this set by Amy. My takes weren’t very literal because it’s hard finding similar outfits in SL so I made my own customized fighting game character in the same general vein of my inspiration pics. This outfit was Mamesando’s gift from last year’s Creator’s Stamp Rally so I’m not sure if it’s even available anymore, but they will be offering it in black for the Summer CSR! This event is so much fun, I highly recommend it if you’ve got Lindens to burn because the gifts available are really awesome.

Super photo intensive… per usual. :D

Swords Part 1

I have been so excited for Sai Pennell‘s Katana poses ever since she first mentioned them and they are awesome!!! <333 I really love these, I keep making excuses to wear my swords everywhere so I can strike a pose when the mood hits me. Whenever I’ve wanted to use a sword or something in the past I’d have to edit the crap out of it to make it work with normal poses I had in my inventory so these just are fantastic. I’m planning on using them in two different themed photos and here’s the first set, inspired by a mix of fighting game characters. :D

I should also mention that Sai is offering an excellent AO completely free in her shop right now. I remember when I first started SL that finding a decent AO was really difficult and the ones that were free were, uh, shall we say not exactly understated. So this is really cool of her to offer this. :)
