Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc

Now the flames they followed Joan of Arc
as she came riding through the dark;
no moon to keep her armour bright,
no man to get her through this very smoky night.
She said, “I’m tired of the war,
I want the kind of work I had before,
a wedding dress or something white
to wear upon my swollen appetite.”
Well, I’m glad to hear you talk this way,
you know I’ve watched you riding every day
and something in me yearns to win
such a cold and lonesome heroine.
“And who are you?” she sternly spoke
to the one beneath the smoke.
“Why, I’m fire,” he replied,
“And I love your solitude, I love your pride.”

“Then fire, make your body cold,
I’m going to give you mine to hold,”
saying this she climbed inside
to be his one, to be his only bride.
And deep into his fiery heart
he took the dust of Joan of Arc,
and high above the wedding guests
he hung the ashes of her wedding dress.

It was deep into his fiery heart
he took the dust of Joan of Arc,
and then she clearly understood
if he was fire, oh then she must be wood.
I saw her wince, I saw her cry,
I saw the glory in her eye.
Myself I long for love and light,
but must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?

~Leonard Cohen~

I felt inspired to refer to Joan of Arc with this outfit. I can’t say if it’s correct for the time….but, for me, it resonates of a strong woman warrior who has brains, courage, and pride! This is the Conqueror set from lassitude & ennui! The set includes the bra and skirt and it’s fitmesh for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya! The set comes in gold, black, and steel(seen here), and is available at the current round of We Love ROLEPLAY, which runs until September 30. The Battleworn Boots(in steel) are also from lassitude & ennui and are available at the main store.

I’ve had to bring out the big guns for my day of battle! I’m holding the Staff of Death,RARE from Anachron! It’s HUD driven with five special powers to use! The gacha set includes twelve common, two rare staffs, and two rare books for you to play for!

I’m wearing the Fierce Wolf Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t that is really impressive! It will be available at the Fluffy and Fierce Event, but not until September 16! I’m going to give you a closer look at this work of art a little closer to the start of the event!! So check back for a land mark and more info!

I didn’t do a close up of my face, but I think I should have! I’m wearing the Chimera Face Paint from Veechi! It’s got great lines and colouring! Check it out at the main store…it comes in the tattoo layer for classic avatars plus appliers for the Genesis Labs, Logo, and Catwa mesh heads!

My hair is NO.FUN, a group gift from NO.MATCH!

I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands from SLink.

To get this pose I used the Vibratory pose from the Frequency, Mens pack of poses from Le Poppycock. I then added the Staff of Death and touched the lightning bolt on the staffs HUD!

I’m high up on a mesa at Garlic Breath at Melee Island for this picture!
