Morphe Inc. has been a place that I frequent for some time now. Abel Dreamscape is very talented in building dark, mysterious castles that are also quite elegant. As a castle lover, I enjoy every moment I mosey through his sim and castles.

Morphe's newest creation is Malicia - a tall (65 meters high) castle. The ominous towering stature is only the beginning. Abel packs in many details that make the castles special - ability to turn torches on and off, sculpted staircases with arched doorways, torches and torchieres with particle flames, ability to turn torches on and off, doors that open with a mechanical knob, elegant railings, and more!

The castles are also packed with overlooks showing you the beauty of the sim. Morphe is not only a place to buy castles and sculptures, it is a place to explore and take in the beauty. Explore the many rooms of the castles. Castle Darkness is a favorite to explore with the secret doors and corridors and the and the dark, mysterious cavern under the castle.

Don't miss the awesome sculptures at Morphe. I was so impressed by them that several of them adorn (and are for sale) at my castle at Effie's Designs.

The Beauty of Fractals - Spiral's Fractals

I just recently discovered the beauty of fractals. According to Wikipedia, "A fractal is generally a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole, a property called self-similarity."

The fractal art and Spiral's Fractals is absolutely gorgeous. The play of colors and is stunning. The pictures here only give you a slight idea of what Spiral has available. You need to see the art for yourself. Spiral's prices are very reasonable too, so you can decorate your SL home with these beauties. Digital Sculptures are also available.

While you are there, take the teleport up to the SPHERE. The SPHERE is a unique club that features a variety of MUSIC VIDEOS that are displayed across many screens throughout the club, allowing you to experience the music visually as you dance to the sounds of your favorite music artists. When I arrived at the club it was all dark and gray. Once I turned on media it became a beautiful play of light and colors - amazing! The club can be rented for special events.

See the Beauty Before It's Gone - The Nameless Isle

The Nameless Isle is another grand creation of Baron Grayson. The depth and creativity should be no surprise for someone who has seen Baron's work before.

The sim itself is far from flat. There are tall cliffs and hills surrounding lagoons at water level.

I can't say enough about the brilliant textures Baron uses on his sims. Sit and watch the waves lapping upon the shoreline. Walk through the rain and the flowers in the hills. Watch the dandelion seeds blow through the air. The realism is uncanny.

The light effects is also amazing. From the purple hues on the hills above to the blue hues in the lagoons to the combination of hues in the sky, it's breathtaking.

You have to see this sim for yourself. Take some time to explore it. But, don't forget to take pictures for two reasons: 1) The Nameless Isle makes a beautiful backdrop for pictures of your avie, and 2) The Namless Isle won't be around for much longer.
