Elys, a simple medieval gown in brocade and velvet, is Spyralle’s new exclusive release for the 2017 Medieval Faire, a SL Relay for Life event presented by the Unmasking a Cure team. All proceeds from four of the six colors go to Relay for Life.
Face InterFace, the newest design in Spyralle’s long running theme of technology as (usually whimsical) jewelry, is our exclusive for the May round of Genre. Theme: Science Fiction – or, perhaps more accurately nuanced, Sci-Fi. And, yes, there is a difference. The latter has, maybe, a bit more room for fun.
The idea is a wearable device – some futuristic amalgam of phone, tablet, enhanced reality interface – that also displays a “face” to the world. A tool of self-expression as well as interactivity and connection.
The controlling HUD – which attaches literally in your face (and also shows up on the inside of the screen facing the avatar) – gives a choice of five frame colors, six light colors (also an on/off switch for brightness), framed and unframed eye lenses in four colors and a selection of “faces” on the outside screen. More of the options are shown below.
There is a demo at Genre so you can try all the options. The scripting allows for future expansion modules.
Only the most observant of long time Spyralle fans may recognize the echoes of Spyralle’s very first Genre creation in this piece. Revisiting those ideas was a major part of the fun I had making this.
Genre is one of those events that encourage both intentional designing toward a set theme and a true diversity of approaches to it – a most welcome attitude in what sometimes seems a vast sea of sameness. For the designer, this poses a pair of challenges that may be in some tension with each other: being thoughtful about the theme as a basis for the design and yet looking for an idea just offbeat enough that nobody else in the event is likely to do something similar enough to dilute interest. The balance point falls differently for every designer, every month, and the chemistry of Genre’s team of creators keeps this event exciting to see and rewarding to engage in. This month’s sci-fi round is no exception!
The model wears “Attention!” – a dress released by Songbird at A Clockwork Spiral 2014, a vintage skin from Curio called The Visitor, a shaved hairbase from Wasabi Pills, IKON eyes and a personal shape.
These soft and colorful accents for a serene and peaceful outdoor space are yours for the finding if you follow the trail of this month’s Peace by Peace Hunt. This set uses three of Spyralle’s Royal Batik patterns – Dawn Sea, Morning Dance and Evening Mist.
Spyralle is delighted to be a sponsor of the Peace by Peace hunt, presented by the team that puts on the annual Peace On Earth Hunt in December. Prizes have the nominal price of one linden in this hunt.
It’s spring (in the northern hemisphere), and about doggone time Spyralle released a short dress, for a change. Lila, inspired by the lilacs in my garden, has perched for now at Swank’s May round. Theme: Wild Spring.
Lila sports some spring wildlife – butterflies! There’s one in the back, too.
We’re trying something a little different with Lila at Swank. Turns out quite a few Spyralle customers don’t use mesh bodies at this time, and several of them have asked if could, please, give them the option of not having a zillion sizes made for bodies they don’t own and don’t plan to. We know many wear mesh bodies all the time and have no use for system sizes, so….
…at Swank, you have the option of choosing a package of standard sizes or a package of sizes for mesh bodies. The prices are lower, too – plus an additional 25% event discount. Depending on how this goes, we may do this for future releases, at least on Marketplace. Be sure to try the demo to make sure you choose the option that is right for you!
The model wears Lila on a Maitreya Lara body with a personal shape. Eyes by IKON. Skin is Emma in the Europe tone from Glam Affair. The hair is tram’s F603.
Four more colors of Spyralle’s Starseeker costume were released for the latter half of Fantasy Faire.
All of the Starseekers will be available at Spyralle soon. The Tai’Dyed Nebulas will be out as well.
The headpiece/armpiece/hand glitter sets will be available separately or as part of the full outfit. Matching Nebula sets from Tai’Dyed were included at Fantasy Faire and may also be in the package at Spyralle. The coordinating and scripted Nebulas will be separate.
A version for Petites has been requested – we are working on that.

The April round of the SWANK event is about to close, and unfortunately I never blogged this set of hair jewelry, Spyralle’s exclusive for the event. The theme is “City of Angels” and I decided to do something a bit different with these fractal wing forms – create unrigged Angelwing jewels to decorate your crowning glory.
Each color set includes all four pieces.
Sunrise Beach. I remember the movie “City of Angels” – I watched it once when I was home with the flu, binge-watching Meg Ryan movies (before binge-watching was a thing) and I loved it. Watched part of it again to refresh my memory, but it was not what I remembered. I did remember the beach, though.
We may release additional Angelwing pieces and additional colors in the future.
In the top picture, the model wears Gemma hair from Elua, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya with a personal shape, eyes by IKON, a Jewel skin from Curio and the ivory Psyche I dress from Spyralle.
An iridescent bowl carved from a giant shell. A flower-shaped base carved from jade and inlaid with enamel. Your gift when you finish the Quest at Fantasy Faire 2017, among the pile of treasures you will receive. Happy hunting!
