Shadow of the Reaper, 3

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Dr Oliver Conray shuffled into the dreary bedroom provided by his Grim taskmaster. In disgust, he tossed his scythe against the bed and sunk onto its faded surface. Dust wafted up and danced in pale light before his strange blacked-out eyes. Standing in the light by the window was the ghostly form of a refined lady. Her delicate voice broke the tense silence, “What happened my love?” He sighed. He didn't want waste a single precious moment he had with his beloved over unpleasant matters. After all, he had paid a horrendous price for the privilege. But still, his heart ached for the life he left behind. "I killed my last living friend today."

For you goth boys, I have some fun things to share. First, I experimented with mixed mesh bodies once more. The upper body is The Mesh Project Male and wearing Gabriel Body Belt shirt. The lower is... *drumrolls* ...Maitreya. Why? For the simple reason that I was able to rock this badass outfit by Moon Elixir thanks to this little trick. Its on sale at the Fantasy Gach Carnival. Paired with the shirt, these two outfits actually worked together really well. My only complaint (besides heavy avatar render weight) is the foot size. Sadly the foot can not be scaled up.  The wonderful black oil tears are from this year's Halloween offering by Tableau Vivant. Its one of the Mort Vivant faces for new skin Marcus. To go with the oily tears, I used the Cubic Cherry Loss eye and tears and tinted it black.  For the hands, is the Cursed Hand applier by Lovely Dissarray. In the background is the fun Hunter Scythe by Swagga. Oh and, one more thing... Did I also mention the *must have* bed for any self-respecting vampire in Secondlife? The Death Row Vampire Gothic Bed set. Worth every single L.

Shadow of the Reaper, 2

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Brilliant white light penetrated the dreary halls of the underworld. It felt warm to the Ghost Lady. She closed her eyes and sighed. It was so peaceful standing in its radiance. Souls of the dead shuffled past her towards the light, drawn by instinct like moths to a flame. She suddenly opened her eyes and turned to an elderly woman. "What do you think the light is?" The woman smiled at her, "Why its the light of heaven, my dear." "No, no," the nearby teenager cut her off, "It's a birth canal. Through the tunnel into the light we live again." A man scoffed and waved them off, "I have to say, as a scientist, its a star. Everyone who ever lived, and anything you ever saw, was born in the heart of a star. So maybe, just maybe, we return to it. Matter back into energy," he shrugged. She stood soundlessly, watching them disappear one by one into the light. Everyday she stood here at the portal waiting for her beloved Oliver to return. And everyday she wondered what lay beyond light. It was a mystery she would never solve. She was trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Was it really a blessing to be loved by a Reaper?

The last round of the much beloved Fantasy Gacha Carnival is going on now. This has been one of my all time favorite events in SL. Its always fun, and always had a good collection of gachas for the men. But take heart, rumor has it the Fantasy Gacha may be continuing with new leadership and new location.
