The Terra Cotta Army


I love my new dress from The Sea Hole. It comes in six colors and, of course, I chose antique. There’s also a pink, yellow, blue, black and silver all in powder-soft pastels with fancy names like blush, custard, sky, shadow and silverscreen. Don’t you just love color names? There are such fabulous details on the dress and it’s a great sensible use of mesh and system pieces in combination. The bodice, with its sheer panels and sparking contrast fabric is a system piece while the skirt is mesh and rigged to move with your movements. It has a mesh alpha, but it’s not necessary, so you can wear some of your loveliest lingerie.


Looking this good, I wanted to go out and about and what would be better than the fabulous new discovery at Tenth Rua. They were terraforming and their excavation lead to the discovery of these magnificent terra cotta soldiers that replicate on a small scale the vast Terra Cotta Army of Emperor Qin that was found under similar circumstances in 1974 when workers were digging a well. Who know such treasures lurked beneath the surface patch? Get digging, people!


I tossed on these lovely suede pumps from Hucci in creme de cacao – another breathless color name and rushed off to explore the excavation. It’s truly amazing and while I probably should have worn more practical shoes, I managed not to trip and fall on the rough-packed dirt floors.


Quite seriously, this is a stunning build and one that took my breath away from the moment I arrived and began walking down the short tunnel to the underground chamber where these soldiers guard the mausoleum of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang Di. The textures are amazingly well done and so rich in dimensional detail that you know you’re in for something special before you even see the vast underground pit full of soldiers. This is a real gift to the people of Second Life and you should take the time to go and experience it.


I am wearing stunning jewelry from Kunglers and the fabulous new skin line, Leah, from Glam Affair. My hair is a pert and sassy updo from Truth. And yet, I think the star power goes to the unnamed statue behind me.
