[G-WTF.] 06.08.12 – Elegance.

High Res @ Flickr.

Still wandering Gor, though I’ve potentially found a place to make my home. I’ve gone there and RPed multiple times on occasion now, which is a rarity with how picky I am. I mean, I feel like the sim itself could be nicer but the quality of RP that the people there do is awesome and is what draws me to them.

This dress from Chain and Vine caught my eye when I was buying their rigged mesh long skirts and the dress just kind of came together. All I could think of was, wear a long sleeve shirt underneath, cover up as much skin as you can and you are golden. Of course, I go against all BTB principals when I added on the earrings (only slaves have pierced ears) but alas, I’ve been in Gor so long now that I much prefer individuality over silly rules like ear piercing.

And this dress really is amazing, my BFF4LYFE over @ Zombie Fetus also rocks the dress like a pro — See Here (click it, now.)

High Res @ Flickr, like usual!

Well, after another failing within the sphere of Slavedom, I ran away and proceeded to revert back, near completely, to my initial and most beloved background story of being an amnesiac who managed to survive in the wilds on her own since she was seven. Crazy but it could happen, if the person was determined enough. This time, though, she’s attempting to make her way in the world of “normal” Gorean civilization and is forcing herself to wear clothing and walk upright, instead of on her hands and the tips of her toes.

It’ll be fun to see what happens to my, still unnamed FW self. “Eliska” was a good name but it is in the past now and so, I will take the next few days figuring out a new name for the new incarnation for a new adventure within the world of Gor– the odd world I randomly can never leave, because for some reason it resonates.

Oh, yeah, credits.

Intensely Delayed G-WTF for 11.12.2011

It’s honestly so like me to make my grand return to blogging only to… disappear for a month. I can say, though, that it wasn’t just me being a lazy bitch. There may be a few moments here or there where it was just being a lazy bitch but for the most part, I have just been tremendously busy in real life. I know, so terrible, right? Actually, right now it’s not too terrible at all. I can’t complain.

I really need to catch up. I have over fifteen outfits I have saved that I need to blog and no time to do so. I need to stop making new ones until I blog them but I change just about daily. It’s my routine. New day in Second Life, new outfit for the day. Being versatile in my attire is a part of my love of both Second Life and Role Playing within Gor. The Gorean guidelines help me have boundaries for my clothing as well as drives me in my searches for things useable and within all that, there is a feeling of artistic expression. I adore it.

I am a slacker. Anyways, does anyone else get this bug where a modifiable object will just suddenly turn no-mod even though it still says you should have mod rights for it? I’ve had it happen a ton for me lately and it’s making life ever more increasingly difficult simply because there is a 90% chance I cannot wear what ever it was in its original size, state or placement. If anyone knows how to fix that, that doesn’t require trying to get the creator to issue me a new set — since it’s really hard when its been a few months since you bought the item and cannot retrieve the transaction ID, then please let me know! I really need mod back on these things, otherwise they become basically worthless to me! This should also note the extreme benefit to modifiable objects versus just resize scripts. Some of us just don’t fit in a +5% or +10%. If we’ve got the will to mod it, we should be able to.

Now, enough of that. This post is becoming a wall of text. This was what I was running around in yesterday. It’s more conservative and could potentially be seen as a free-woman outfit. Not a super rich and fancy one, mind you but I think it covers enough for some sort of peasant-like attire.

The guitar from Happy Mood was from some sort of gacha event, I can’t remember it’s name. So if it’s unavailable now, I apologize. It’s one of my favorites, though. Since it looks painfully crafted naturally. All my jewelry is from Kosh since I fucking raped their store. I raped it even before the 50% off sale but then I truely raped it once the sale happened — including their furniture section.

Scarf is from Miel during last weeks 50L Friday. Speaking of that, I need to check todays…

[double.] + May’s Soul “Leonor”

(Please check out the full credits & High Res @ Flickr.)

This is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now but was given the opportunity to a few days ago. May Tolsen gifted me this outfit and while I adore it as its own outfit, I wanted to do a different approach to blogging it (I hope you don’t mind!). In Gor, there is a very minimal market still for nice, cute and super nice quality clothing and May’s Soul is one of them. While texture work isn’t super extreme, it’s constantly getting better and it’s not unwearable and is actually really nice, it kind of gives it all a more “natural” or “rustic” feel to it, instead of all the nice and sleek modern textures on the mainstream clothing. I’m in no way saying it’s bad at all, I honestly wear things from May’s Soul almost daily and check the store frequently for new releases and discounted items. Outfits come complete and are very affordable, so if you haven’t stopped by May’s Soul yet, I really suggest it. I like the store build, too :)

Anyways, where was I? As I was saying, the market is still a bit sparse (in comparison to the modern market) so there is a high chance that girls will be wearing the same things, even men in the same things. When something is good, there is no doubt that everyone will go out and get it and this obviously over-saturates it. I’ve seen some great pieces of male pieces worn by over a handful of men just from lurking Gor Hub. For me, the idea of this creates a problem. I like to be myself and stand out from the other girls. While I still try to portray my role as a Bond-Maid (a Slave Girl in Northern Gor) as closely as I can because I prefer a more By-The-Book approach to my Role-Play over “Evolved”, I still want to look unique. Both of these outfits, in my opinion are “Slave Wear” and I’ll explain the left one more-so than the right as to why.

As I said earlier, it’s said that during the winter, slaves do indeed wear pants. The issue is that pants aren’t very revealing at all and since it’s winter and obviously cold, a lot of skin is going to be covered up which isn’t allowed by a Slave. To be fully conservative and covered is the right of a Free Woman and more-so, a Slave must wear clothing that is easily removable or, ahem, bypassed in-case their owner wishes for them to serve in the long-house (in the north) where bond-maids serve naked. How I tried to balance that was with a very billowy and loose shirt under a high-cut and open little tunic. In my eyes, the loose fabric bares the stomach when there’s movement and since obviously, there is nothing under it, if her Jarl wants to slip his hands up her shirt and sneak in a squeeze, the ability is there and the clothing aren’t getting in the way of it.

The right one is more Summer bond, or even Southern sans shoes. The camisk looks like it’s plain unbleached linen split down almost to the navel, like how the top of Kirtles are described to be, which paired with the belt could technically make this some sort of psuedo-kirtle.  As a Bond, I tend to use a lot of accessories because unlike their Southern counterparts, they usually do a lot more in terms of work and labor and since my Jarl and I travel around a lot still, the idea of carrying little things we need or purchase during our travels as one of my tasks makes its plausible. I had someone laugh at me for it, saying it was wrong because I “owned so much stuff” because I was wearing it but just because I am holding it does not make it “my property” or any other slaves property for that matter. If their Master or Mistress tells the to carry the backpack full of supplies then they damn well will carry the fucking backpack full of supplies.

So, when you go shopping. Don’t get scared of not liking an outfit as a whole and try to have a wider outlook on it.  I know I will sometimes see an outfit and not like it too much on its own but they I’ll remember a piece of clothing in my inventory or something I saw in a store but never bought that would go *perfectly* with it and make it my own personal style and suddenly it becomes like a favorite outfit of mine. Like they say with anything, the only thing stopping you is yourself so don’t be scared to be yourself.

I am amazingly tired even though I’ve been sleeping thoroughly the passed few days. But hey, this is what happens when you’re having a struggle with anemia that’s worse than normal! Still, that doesn’t stop me from putting my outfits together and posting them. Honestly, it’s so much simpler to blog the outfit you wore *yesterday* and *today* because I don’t have to sit around and rush myself to have an outfit, I already did. Better blogger Verinne, here we come! Now I just need to start doing reviews again and I’ll be good. Speaking of, I need a public opinion on if I should move the Gorean portion of this to a separate, Gorean only blog. I think it might be a good idea to separate them as Gor is becoming a large part of my day to day in SL and I feel it would allow me to reach out more as the Gorean blog could be syndicated to the regular feeds as well as the *Gorean only* feed, which I feel that currently, since it isn’t a Gor only blog, I would not want to syndicate it in to. Whatever, feedback would be appreciated!

Anyways, I’m wearing pants! Well, they’re ragged shorts with socks underneath. In Swordsman of Gor, which Elle over @ Elle’s World most graciously reminded everyone of, it was said that during the winter times, slave girls are indeed allowed to wear pants. Obviously, it’s a bit more detailed then that and she has the quotes within her blog. So, even though my Jarl obviously prefers when I show off my booty, he was at least alright I had a nip slip going on. Got to have some flesh out in the open here.

The hardest thing I’ve found already with this is having enough fucking additions. I don’t ever seem to have enough scarves or ACCESSORIES as I had mention yesterday. I really wish I knew more places to pick them up. I scour all over the Gor sims, inspect the shit out of people at the Gor hub (Which seems like other people do to me *cough*) but half the time there just doesn’t seem like there are any new places for me to go. I know, there are actually a lot of things I want for Gor and have yet to buy. Stores like ViGo, Savage Garden, Knickknack and an even larger list of others are all on my list to buy from but I have to be patient . Can’t throw all my money all over the place all the time!

One thing I highly enjoy when role-playing, as I think most of us who role-play do, is the creation of characters and/or the creation of outfits. I love shopping and I like to go to different stores and just buy things here and there. One thing I cannot have enough of, though, are accessories. Belts, thigh belts, anything. I love to take an outfit that other people might also have and make it into something greater. Accessories help me accomplish that. I can’t have enough things to add on.  Literally, can not have enough. I buy so many accessory based things simply because I feel like it adds on to the role play.

For example, I play a bond-maid in Torvaldsland. Cold there, obviously — snow and all. She is a slave to a traveler who trades and sells fur. This means she’s more likely to wear fur accessories as well as carry a lot of things. She has to be useful so she carries most of the furs and rations and whatever miscellaneous items and the backpack, belt and leg items sure have enough room to hold things for two people. With fur, the small poncho/cloak, the scarf, the mittens and the boots all reflect the usage of furs, skins and leathers and she adorns her head with the odd pair of tabuk, verr, deer, Kailiauk, Bosh, whatever horned-animal-type horns. Given as they only sometimes traded or sold the horns, she’s able to keep a few pairs as accessories.

I like to keep my clothing neutral. Browns, tans, sand-tones, off-whites; Anything that seems like it wouldn’t take a lot of processing. She is new to her role as a slave and if she acquires anything that is of far greater quality then her simple kirtles, they would be for special occasions. Extremely special seeing as bond-maids serve naked in the long-houses (unless in the presence of a free woman). and besides, neutrals just look way more viking-ish don’t you think?

I will make one note, the belt is from Ever After and I wish that they had more things for sale. They seem to cater just to belts and accessories and it’s exactly what I need to add more to in my inventory.

If anyone has any suggestions for great gorean clothing and accessory stores, please do drop a line with the name! I’m always looking for great pieces to supplement my RP stuff too. I’m also always looking for great winter-ish articles of clothing as well as nicely made kirtles and bond-maid outfits.
