The Keeper of Untold Tales

The Keeper of Untold Tales

 

Every story has a Narrator, even the really old ones.

How did they go about making sure each tale ended up having one, even if the stories were untold?

They would force a soul into a scroll, and as the words were written, the soul would alight with the new knowledge. A simple touch would activate the soul into telling the tale written on the fine papers.

As years went on, and less practiced the art of soulbinding, these souls were tied to more and more scrolls. Some would have up to 20 scrolls bounded to them.

In time, as with many things, this was all lost in history. People forgot about the soul bound scrolls, and the tales yet to be told.

The Keepers of the Untold Tales became bitter things. They had given up their eternal happiness for a greater cause, only to be left dusty on a shelf somewhere, forgotten. The bitterness gave them their own power of sorts, to appear without writing on their scrolls. People often mistook them for wraiths or banshees, history having forgotten their true purpose.

They are often seen near forgotten temples, library ruins and dismantled schools.

To look upon them is rather eerie, as they either just stare, or look like they are speaking, but no words every come out.

To lay a Keeper to rest, all you have to do is write a tale on one of their scrolls. When done, hide it in a safe place.

Monday Eyeful – Eye Effects by Birth

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Eye Effects by Birth

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eye effects from Birth. Not many designers make things that augment your eyes, but I really do enjoy the ones I end up randomly finding.

These are from Birth called Glimmer Eye System. You need the base system to be able to use the Eye Effects.

They are priced at L$150 per pack of 2 Effects, with 2 packs to collect. When I say 2 Effects, I mean the Type is the same, but you get one animation that is already coloured, and the other is a tintable version.

I ended up taking Some Gyazo Gifs of the effects, so you can see what they do, as pictures don’t do them justice. Also, it really is much cooler inworld live.

 

Glimmer Eyes by Birth – Standard Effect that comes with the base system

 

100% RFL Charity Spellbook Effect by Birth – Coloured Effect Version

 

100% RFL Charity Firehands Effect by Birth – Coloured Effect Version

The one this I really like about the base system, is there is a BOM set included, so I am actually wearing my own eyes, Shifting Sands, which are what the effects are layered on top of.  The best part about the base system, is you have pupil options. My Shifting Sands eyes are pupiless, so this allows me to change the look of my own creation, adding pupils, changing their size, adding shine type, then putting the effects on top.

This really means you can end up with so many options for eyes in your collection. This system, and it’s addon effects, can really help you make your look unique. I normally start my look with my eyes, and go from there, and now I can really make them the centerpiece of my who ensemble.

Monday Eyeful – Beautiful Creature Eyes by Rainbow Sundae

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Rainbow Sundae

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Rainbow Sundae. Another new to me store, which is sort of the point of this feature, me showing you eyes from places you might not know too.

These are from Rainbow Sundae called Beautiful Creature Eyes.

They are priced at L$150 per pack of 6, with 2 packs to collect. System/BOM and Omega Appliers are included in the pack. These are 100% charity items for Relay for Life at this years Fantasy Faire.

_Rainbow Sundae_ Beautiful Creature Eyes - Pastel

I have been enjoying the look of these on a mesh head that you can manipulate the eyes to be rather large. I think they are striking, and can be used for many different sorts of creatures. Great for Roleplaying, and fantasy looks.

I’m also wearing a few other things from Fantasy Faire. The crown is from Ambix and the Tattoo is from Even-Tide. Both are 100% Relay for Life Charity Items.

I was so happy to learn Even-Tide was still around. It is hard trying to check up on all your friends, and all the stores, when you come back after such a long break. So many people are resurfacing as well. It feels like a good time to have come back, even though the reasons for so many inworld right now aren’t the best.

Crystals!!!

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Crystals

Very rarely do I blog in the H&G category. I actually have never had a home in sl, prims are precious. Even with the 2 sims, and all the mainland I have, I just always thought it was silly to waste the prims on a home.

I do have urges every once in a while, and sometimes things are just too cool to pass up. That is what these huge Crystals are for me. Something really cool, that I wanted, and didn’t care if I had a place for them. I will eventually put one out at my store desk, or in my work station(which is where I photographed these).

CELESTE - Crystal Clusters

If you want some random crystals for yourself, then you have to head on down to Ostara’s Alter Event. These are the New and Exclusive item from Celeste.

If you are up to a slight, not so challenging challenge, there is this really cool globe thing, that Celeste has out for their Hunt item. It is only L$5, and the eggs in the hunt are rather huge and easy to find.

Celeste - Globe

If you would like to see what else is at the event, there is a wonderful gallery, with all exclusives, plus all the L$5 Hunt items.

The numbers correspond to the configuration of the crystals, not so much to the sizes. Or that is the way it seems to me. They are Copy/Mod, so you can change the sizes anyway.

Monday Eyeful – Fruit Punch Eyes by Demicorn

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Fruit Punch Eyes by Demicorn

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Demicorn. This is a new to me store, I am not sure if they were around when I was still inworld before, or just not on my radar, but I found them while doing one of the ever popular weekend sales lists.

These are from Lotus called Fruit Punch Eyes.

They are priced at L$599 per pack of 5, with 3 packs to collect, and the Megapack is L$999. System/BOM, Omega, Catwa and Genus Appliers are included in the pack.

Demicorn Fruit Punch Eyes

I am actually wearing just the system eyes with this head from Dream. The iris is a little large, but I don’t mind the look with this alieneque thing I have going on.

Now, I bought these during Secret Sale Sundays, so they were L$50 for the Megapack at the time. I would suggest if you like the look of these, to come on by the store, get a few gachas, other offerings, see about the quality. Join the subscriber, so you can get notices on other deals. I understand Eye designers are pricing their eyes at about L$100 per applier on average, so when things get bundled, prices go up. I don’t think the price is unfair, but as an eye collector, who buys multiple eyes in a week, from various stores, I like to keep enough money to go around.

This designer is really generous though, and does put things on sale from time to time, so again, click that subscriber.

I am also wearing this really unique skin from Stargazer. I was there recently, checking on the store. I have a list of stores I use to shop at, from before my absence, so over the last month and a half, I have been trying to visit a few here and there, to see if they are still around. Stargazer obviously is, and seems to be doing well!

On my visit I came across a little alcove, which has various discounted deals. This skin was up for L$99 for group members(Free to Join). And while I normally wouldn’t but anything with pink, it was so interesting, I couldn’t pass it up.

It is actually a full on avi pack, more than just a skin. There are 11 face versions, with different body types. The skin also comes in plain pink as well as the faded pink and green. You get eyes, nail appliers, ears, alien head bits, wings and other things??? I might be missing something, but there is a lot in the pack. For L$99, you really can’t go wrong. Fantasy Faire is on the way, and if you don’t normally do something more out there with your skin tones, this is a great way to get started!

Monday Eyeful – Fairytale Eyes by Lotus

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Lotus
This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Lotus. This is a new to me store, I am not sure if they were around when I was still inworld before, or just not on my radar, but I found them at The Arcade, with this Gacha offer.

These are from Lotus called Fairytale Eyes.

They are priced at L$69 per play, and there is currently no Megapack option. Unrigged Mesh, BOM, Catwa, Lelutka and Genus Appliers are included in the pack.

 LOTUS x THE ARCADE

I feel the eyes are a good size, especially with the trend of squinty eyed mesh heads. The ranges are great, I love options, and all the gachas are similar in the fact that there are a lot of colours.

Lotus makes a lot of gachas, but they do have regular Eye packs, which I think are very reasonably priced. You get around 8-10 eye colours for L$179. Read the vendors as some packs are only for certain heads and eye types.

Right now there is a little sale going on, for how long, I don’t know, but some of the gachas are set to L$20 per play, Two for Unrigged Mesh Eyes and one with Catwa, Lelutka and Unrigged Mesh.There is also some discounted eye packs, if you want to see if you enjoy the eyes, before you start going ham on the store. There are some discounted non eye related gacha things too. Not sure for how long, the notice went out April 4th.

Monday Eyeful – Oculos Eyes by Soul

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Soul

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Soul. These aren’t new by any means, but sometimes blogging isn’t about showing what is new, but what you truly love. There was also an oops though. I had originally done another shot, using newer eyes, only to find out they were not in the new store at the moment. Haha, I guess that one is on the bck burner until they come out again. So this is the sudden backup post!

These are from Soul called Oculos Eyes.

They are priced at L$199 per pair, or you can grab a Megapack for L$2,999. Unrigged Mesh, System, Omega and Genesis Lab Appliers are included in the pack.

2016_Soul_Oculos_Eyes_AD_ALL

I own about 4 of these, and they are all lovely and well made.

I am also wearing another not new item, but one I’ve enjoyed often in the past, which is this skin by Plastik. It works well with several BOM enabled head I own, so I thought I’d throw this into the post as well. I like to be rather pale when I am human toned, and this skin is one of the few human toned skins from Plastik that I like to wear more often. It is a good one for layering makeups on, as it is a great plain base. I also think the lips look great on their own, and I find that lacking sometimes, with basic human toned skins.

Throwback Thursdays – 2015 – Winter Halo

***Special Note – This was another post that just never made it up on the blog, which had some rather nice shots already done up. I even wrote the whole thing up, just never coded it. Not sure why. This baby was from March 2015.***

1

I have been wearing this outfit on and off for a bit now, and just been putting it off to the side, to post other things. I am not feeling that well today, so it was an easy decision to post this up. No hard work needed.

My friend longtime friend, Ruina Kessel, owner of Devae(House of Ruin and Rue), created this interesting Halo. I have to admit to not having a clue what event she originally created it for.

2

I got the last of the Limited Editions up for this hair, on SL Marketplace, so it is finally available for the general public. This is one of my favorite hairs, which is why I wear it so often. It is also one from my personal unreleased collection, hence why it is limited, and was never slated for the store.

I am getting a lot of new traffic, so you all may not know me. I am a lover of colour, so while I do tread more on the goth/punk/alternative side of things, I have never been one to just wear black. I enjoy creations from Adoness for this reason. Not only do most of the items work with my hair colours, but there is a variety of colours, depending on what the item is. This long winter coat is a fine example, pairing red and purple is not something most designers would do. The fact that it is a floral print to boot, well, I could not stay away, haha.

I also have some eyes from Chop Shop on, these call to my demony side. Hypnotic and gloomy.

Monday Eyeful – Madame Noir

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Madame Noir

This week on Monday Eyeful,I am showing you a discounted eye pack, that was out over the weekend for the Manly Weekend Sales Group. When I went to grab my slurl for the store, it was still discounted, as of this post, so might be worth it to hurry over to nab it.

While I might not be a male, I do have to dress up as one for ads, and yes go both ways, you really can’t make an eye that strictly looks manly. I always check the list for that reason. I’ve picked up a few packs from this store so far, from Manly Weekend.

The current offering from Madame Noir is called Moncho Eyes.

They are priced at L$50 currently for a pack of 13 colourations. These are discounted, and the rest of the eye packs in the shop are L$350, so I would assume these will be as well in the very near future. Unrigged Mesh, Catwa, Genus and Lelutka appliers are included in the pack.

Madame Noir - Moncho Eyes

Grab this awesome deal while you still can! Also, keep a look out for other Manly Weekends, it is a great place to score eyes, backdrops and buildings.

Ritual(formerly Lumae), has been doing L$75 Duo packs of skins for only the weekend. 3 have happend so far, so I can only think more will come. Today I am wearing the Elysa tone. I feel it works well with the new budget head I bought from Dream. Got to work on my face shape a bit more, but I am fairly happy.

Throwback Thursdays – 2014 – Holiday Angel

1

I thought I would share these shots today, for throwback Thursday, because they were sitting here all dusty in my drafts. One of the things I liked to do, expecially for event blogging, was pre do a bunch of outfits in a day, take shots, then set them to go live over a span of time. Every once in a while, my plans don’t really work. I can’t totally recall why this post never went out, but the shot above is fairly cool. I remember taking these in a church a friend owned on their sim.
