This is post is so far 'off my toes' that it doesn't even have feet, but that doesn't mean it is lacking in the stuff that gets your heart racing. When I first got a peek at the Erare Project, the latest venture from the creative people behind Celoe and LeLutka, I was quite simple in awe. It has been far too long since I climbed into something this breathtaking, the Erare Syrens, as they are called, are sensual and dangerous creatures... this isn't Disney folks. They have the appeal of a mermaid, but they have the kind of creative edge that makes them full out fantasy, rather than simply another SL costume event.
These eight beautiful creatures are; Flora, Foam, Fury, Ghost, Glory, Pretense, Mercy and Spire. Each of the Syrens comes packaged with everything you will need to drift away, minus the skin and shape, and for many that is ideal. The mesh parts of the Syren are beautifully realized, the system layer body texture is hauntingly detailed, and the flowing flexible prims are something out of a dream. These are well suited for anyone seeking inspiration for photographs, but equally great for dressing up with your friends and going underwater dancing at one of the mermaid friendly sims in SL, some of those mer-men are worth checking out too!
I decided to embrace the fantastical and resurrected the Trinity/Vampire Skins from Redgrave, they have a eerily pale iridescence that worked really well, and I love the dramatic look of them. Naturally you can wear your favorite human skins, or why not pull out some of those exotic gatcha prize skins and customize your look even further. Whether you create your own lore for your Syren, or derive inspiration from the included notecard, I hope you will take a closer look at them when you visit Mayfair tomorrow (Scheduled release date is March 1st), they are the stuff that songs are written about.
