Take a step outside your sim once in a while and you might run into the power players of the RP sims. These are the women who carry heavy duty scripted weapons and have kill ratings floating over their heads. They are always gorgeous—well dressed and beautifully detailed in their character appearance.
One of the places the best RP’ers go is Eclipse Development, where Bryce Randt and Eclipse Lykin make being an RP’er a work of art. Their newest outfit comes with so many combinations, you’ll be able to traverse the plains, survive the apocalypse, engage in hand-to-hand combat, and seduce the prince with just a few clothing changes.
The outfit comes with the wicked boots and gloves as well as a sculpted chest piece that discreetly covers the breasts and another shoulder piece that comes with or without cape. Add a veil and long skirt, shoulder pads, and layers upon layers of stockings, pants, shorts, corset and sexy bra, and you get a lot in this bundle.
Mirja Mills’ hair is another great place for RP/fantasy wear. Her hair (which she is producing at an unbelievable rate) is perfect for outfits like these—a bit wild, very untamed and perfect for fantasy.
“You wouldn’t think it would be Toby—she was so tough and hard—but if you’re drowning, a soft squashy thing is no good to hold on to. You need something more solid.” ~ Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood

Bryce Randt and Eclipse Lykin of Eclipse make some of the toughest, most elaborate RP wear on the grid. They are also the nicest people you will ever meet. I had the pleasure of meeting Bryce and then his partner Eclipse when we were all doing RFL (which has personal significance for them as it does for many in SL). I had long admired their work without knowing the warm hearts behind the work.
Bryce and Eclipse have achieved a partnership that many of us would envy. They had known each other before entering Second Life, and Bryce followed Eclipse into this new world where they could open shop. Their work and vision is so entwined that they can not tell where one’s work ends and the other’s begins.
“Realize your RP” is the tagline of their business, and it caught my attention. Their RP wear is so elaborately made, so complete with evocative details that it’s hard not to WANT to create a story about the person wearing it.
I felt instantly tougher wearing it. Gone was the fussy woman with the legendary shoe collection. Present was the tough and beautiful warrior and conjurer. Scuffed boots from miles of travel, elaborate staff in hand, equipped with tools for conjuring and facing foes, I felt confident and ready.
Note the details–the knife holstered on the back of a vest, the tooled leather belt complete with mystical hourglass and pockets containing herbs and other spells. I styled this piece with MissAllSunday’s Aerandir beautifully braided hair to make a complete look.
And check out the back side. They sure know how to make a good butt, much less the gloves and leg satchel.
Few things in SL can survive such close scrutiny. With their work, I can still get this close and gasp with wonder. The textures from the system pieces to the prims are immaculate and contain in them the stories of ages.
