The Love Witch

It’s hard to believe we’re almost into February; Christmas only seems like it was five minutes ago, yet at the same time it seems so very far away.  Still, there are lots of events to look forward to in 2018, and coming up we have St. Valentine’s Day, where we celebrate the beating, stoning and eventual beheading of this religious martyr

No, we don’t actually, we celebrate romantic love and all that it entails. Like most real-life holidays and festivals SECOND LIFE embraces St Valentine’s Day with as much gusto as it can, meaning that the grid will soon be festooned in frothy pink and red hearts everywhere, but there’s also going to be some excellent shopping opportunities.

If you like your looks romantic but retro with a modern edge, here’s an outfit to get you going.  I’m sporting a beautiful frock from VALENTINA E (perfect place for Valentine’s Day fashion, right down to the name!) in a perfect shade of blush pink, although other colours are available.  It features puffy sleeves and a nipped-in, banded waist with a ‘V’ neck to both the front and back, along with excellent creasing and seam detail.  I’ve teamed it with some edgy tattoos from NAR MATTARU, and a cracking necklace I discovered whilst mooching around RANDOM MATTER (one of my absolute fave stores in-world for edgy and unusual accessories).  My rings are from YUMMY, a brand that is quite frankly on fire at the moment, releasing epic ring set after ring set (and here I am buying them all) and this one is no exception. This is the ‘Sweetheart’ ring set, featuring a ginormous, gem-encrusted heart, along with individual decorated bands and statement rings to adorn your paws in perfect Valentine fashion.  It’s available right now at N21 and is available to fit either Maitreya or Slink.

.. it’s time for SEASON OF THE WITCH to come to a close. It’s been a phenomenal event and  I’ve enjoyed everything about it, from the Witchy aesthetic at the HQ and the sim itself,  to the wares that could be purchased.  I’m really pleased that the team behind this event have elected to do another one next year, ‘The April Witch’,  because I think it’s really bridged a gap enabling us Pagan-inclined folk to purchase quality Witchy wares for our abodes and ourselves.

If you’ve missed anything be sure to save the link to the Seraphim review page, that way you can locate the names of the designers and visit their in-world stores once the show has closed.

Here’s a final look using items from the event, and I’m sure you’ll spot many others on this page in the weeks and months to come!

SOTW: Inside the Witch’s parlour..

Season Of The Witch is in full swing gang, and every day there’s something wonderful to discover. I created a pretty, Bohemian look blending items from the event with a little furry friend that I discovered at THE EPIPHANY.   My skin is an AMARA BEAUTY Catwa applier,  ‘Anita’, that I’m using as a base for this WARPAINT eyeshadow that adds just the perfect touch of colour to the eye area.

The broom park behind me is from CANDLE & CAULDRON at SOTW, and it’s incredibly cute and adds a real witchy flavour to your abode! Details of the look are all below, enjoy!
