  • My racinated wardrobe is quite mada mada (not there yet) but I can relay a few basic principles to keeping warm in racinated clothing that West Telluria seems to have lost in recent years.

    1. Thick stockings, good boots. Covering and keeping the feet dry does a lot towards keeping the rest of your legs warm. Cold toes are dangerous in winter!

    2.…[Read more]

  • Rayati!
    I, too, live in a very chilly place.
    Personally, I have taken to wearing a sort of compression nylon under my knee-length dresses. I am also Estrenne, but dressing as such could be taken very poorly in my culture, and I have yet to pluck up the courage to do so… So I often stick to 1950s style dresses, or even shift dresses reminiscent…[Read more]

    Rayati and welcome, honored Miss Lynn! I beg your loving indulgence.

    Your profile picture is so beautiful! May I inquire from where it comes? The style looks so gentle and serene, and if it is a kinnie or a manga, I should like to see it, I think!

    In amity,

  • Rayati, minasan,

    I live in the north where it gets quite cold! As winter approaches, and the days of summery skirts and flowing tops go into hibernation, what is a maid to do with her clothing? As an Estrenne, I much prefer the old old styles like those in medieval or Renaissance Telluria, and even wide flowing dressy bifurcs with a beautiful…[Read more]

    Honored Mei-chei,

    Rayati! Please grant me your loving indulgence. That’s quite alright. In fact, I apologize that my reply is rather late in coming as well. I am also very pleased to meet you. I love your avatar, by the way. Sailor Mercury is my favorite sailor scout. Your profile is also quite adorable.

    In amity,

    Lynn

    Tamala, the final festival before the Nativity season, is a fire festival – the fires of Tamala light the departed on the next phase of their journey back to the Mother – and a feast of the unity of the Family of the Faithful. As for pumpkins and witches – well… why not? It’s fun too!

    Honored Venus-chei,

    Rayati again and I would like to extend my welcome as well, such as it is as an even newer member of the forum than yourself. I’m also from Texas and would be honored if you would join me for a coffee or other outing some time if you are able.

    I too have a Dianic Wiccan background and I would say your insight into the matter…[Read more]

    Rayati, honored Sushuri-chei,

    Please give me your loving indulgence. The pleasure is all mine, surely. I feel incredibly welcomed by you all.

    Thank you for the further clarification and for that vital piece of reassurance. I am sincerely flattered by the time taken to offer me such comfort.

    I look forward to getting to know you better and may…[Read more]

    Honored Venus-chei,

    Thank you for your kind indulgence of my curiosity. Your words have been most helpful.

    May you have a blessed day.

    In amity,

    Lynn

  • Rayati Miss Lynne, please give me your loving indulence.

    I am very happy to meet you and welcome you to Shining World.

    We mostly use the honorifics -chei, Miss and -san here. Miss is more Westrenne (and does not indicate marital status) and also West Tellurian. -chei is more Estrenne, as Miss Venus says. -san is used when we are speaking…[Read more]

    Dearest honored Miss Lynn the pleasure is mine,

    Yes, you are correct on the gospel. The one published by Sun Daughter Press/ Chapel Of Mother God is the one that we use.

    “Chei” is suffix meaning “Miss.” I may be mistaken, but I believe -chei is used more often by Estrennes than Westrennes. Either way it is perfectly fine to use.

    In amity,
    Miss Venus

    Rayati, Honored Miss Venus! Please give me your loving indulgence.

    Thank you for your wonderful suggestions. I have read some of those, but still have many more to catch up on.

    If I might impose again to ask a few more questions, I was under the impression the preferred version of The Gospel is the one printed by The Chapel of Our Mother God.…[Read more]

    Rayati Lynn-chei

    I am still quite new myself, but I found Flight Of The Silver Vixen to really help with my understanding of Chelouranya. There’s also Goldenhead, The Feminine Universe, The Gospel and allgirlsworld.

    The Encyclopedia for Chelouranya no longer works but notes from Chelouranya is another excellent blog. While we grow I focus on…[Read more]

  • Rayati and welcome, honored Miss Lynn! Please give me your loving indulgence. Yes, this aisatsu of ours is very much like the Japanese yoroshiku onegaishimasu! Isn’t it lovely that there is a modernly spoken language in Telluria that still retains so many civilized phrases?

    A lot of your questions can be answered by addressing what sort of space…[Read more]
