After an enjoyable evening out dining with friends, I returned to find my desktop and monitor had cooled somewhat after having taken quite a beating the past few days. Cruising the feeds, Icame across the name of a store new to me posted by Suri Christen over at Free*Style. The store is named R.icielli, and its full of delicious seperates and dresses, realistically drawn and richly coloured.

During my meanderings here and there, I stumbled across the name ‘Rustica‘ which piqued my curiosity enough to take a look to take some photographs. On arrival I was confronted by jaw-dropping beauty, the likes of which I have rarely seen in this virtual world.

A Village In Time

Unbeknownst to me, I was greeted by the creator of this beautiful landscape, Maxwell Graf. I say this because although he was deep in conversation with me, I had crashed badly. However upon relog I was able to respond to him, and arrange a satisfactory disposition for the both of us.

I had intended to use the sim as a backdrop for fashion photography, but truly I could not do this without first taking some photos to show you of this build and the surrounding sims. Maxwell Graf has used our virtual environment as a canvas to bewitch and inspire us, beguile and transform our virtual lives, seduce and satiate our senses.

A Village In Time

Neighboring Rustica are the sims of LagNmoor and Rune, both equally enchanting, however I only got as far as LagNmoor this visit.

A Village In Time

Buildings, landscape, accessories in fact most things you can see are available for purchase.

A Village In Time

My photographs do not do this justice. This is not a series of builds, this is art from an artist. Please go and visit for yourself, you will not regret it I can assure you.

Post-Christmas, avoiding Boxing Day sales, exploring the Grid – that’s my theme for today!

‘Now, where shall I go to first?’

‘I found those stockings Tenshi was after, hope these are the right rose pattern’

‘Now – was it that store or was it this store??’
