Hunger Games Tribute by Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW - Johanna 01

“Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

And again I am back with another of my creations for the Hunger Games Tribute event ran by Opium Evolution.

Today I would like to showcase my “Johanna” dress. This dress is made with the idea of Capitol Couture.

The dress is basically a short dress with a long train in the back. The shoulders are free and a huge collar lays round the neck. To connect the dress and the collar I placed one of the popular mockingjaw brooches at the left side of the chest. The dress itself has a basic black texture and the golden brocade corset sets a wonderful accent to the black and gives the whole ensemble a sophisticated touch. To bring back the gold, the long train was overlayed with a golden gitter net looking gaze. The huge black and gold headpiece as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and an unrigged version.

To complete the look I added one armlet in black and one bracelet in gold.

At the moment you can see all my new releases for the Hunger Games Tribute even – female AND male – at the shopping area of the Hunger Games Tribute event sim (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)

Styling around a hat?

PurpleMoon 01

Lately I had a show wich gave me some nice challenge during the styling.

Usually we get an outfit and have to style around with hair, accessories, shoes and poses. This time we just got  hat as a basic and it should kinda be the center of your looks.

I was sitting down first and looked at all those hats and tried to imagine a time frame for them to be in and then slowly looks grew in my head for each one.

The difficulty mainly was, to not loose the hat in the look. The hat as a very little part on your head still had to stay kinda as the main focus.

One of my hats was the “Soleil” hat from Miamai, made for the Art in Hats 2014 event. This wonderful purple hat with the peacock feather decoration on the left side of the hat. The hat has a very young and modern look so I wanted to try to kinda develop a new and modern 80s look for it as the colors called so much for the 80s.

I wanted to kinda pull the purple and green through the whole styling so I decided to wear the cool “Moxie” outfit from PurpleMoon as it gives the basic 80s look for me with the jacked that has those huge shoulder parts and the amazing huge belt that I remember very well for the 80s together with some tight leggings 😉

So the purple part was covered and I just had to set some accents in green to bring the peacock feathers back into the center. That happened with the amazing earrings I found on marketplace and the kick ass “Summer Breeze Flips” shoes from PurpleMoon wich were part of the Le’Accessories event.

The awesome apple-green nail polish I found in the “Bright Set” from Nailed It! and the perfect finish for my look made the “Wicca Lips” in apple from Silken Moon.

LOTD 08/02/2014 featuring Faster Pussycat

Faster Pussycat 01

 

Sometimes you just wanna clean you inventory and you find things that you already forgot about.

So it happenend when I was sitting on my sky platform and found one of the wonderful creations of Honey Bender, owner and designer of Faster Pussycat. The amazing “Diablo” mesh dress in beige.

With the amazing beige tones it gave a kinda vintage touch to me but with the hat, and the spine it again was very modern. I still decided to try the vintage meets future look in a more vintage looking picture.

The dres sis mesh made with awesome skirt attachments that are moving. The hat as well is part of the outfit and with the cool looking veil, that kinda looks windblown from the front to the back, it totally made it’s way into my heart.

Honey Bender is one of the “oldest” friends I have in SL and I always admired her work and she was and still is always a huge inspiration for me. Her creations are so unique and you can tell by a piece of clothing if she made it. She always gives her designs a very edgy twist even if they look sometimes even casual on the first view 😉

To see all of her amazing creations and as well new releases please take some time and visit her store. Iam sure you will find something that suits you 😉

A Tribute to the Hunger Games by Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW - Enobaria 001

“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
Today is a very special day for me. The first time my own creations will be showcased on a runway. I was asked my Anastacia Markova to be part of the Hunger Games Tribute done my Opium Evolution.
I sat down for 3 weeks to think about what I would like to do for this amazing event. I am addicted to the Hunger Games stories. I saw both movies, read all the books and have 3 parts as audio book, so I can say I am kinda.. obsessed*giggles*
I love the idea of the futuristic and high fashion designs that are worn in the movies as well the various websites about Capitol Couture.
In the past I already released my Claw Boots and the Mathayus Heels, wich as well were made after a website that shows Capitol Couture.
Today I would like to start with my “Enobaria” outfit.
The name Enobaria was taken from one of the tributes that were chosen to be part of the hunger games. She won the 62nd Hunger Games and was known of killing her fellow tributes by ripping their throats with her bare teeth. She was called back for the 75th Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell edition, as the female tribute of district 2 one of the Career alliance districts.
The “Enobaria” outfit is a top and leggings combination, wich as well can be worn single to make your own mix and match. For the Capitol Couture version I chose the color combination teal and black. The top kinda is an ensemble of blouse and corset and with the long arms and all the frills it was perfect in my view.
The leggings are only wearable with the Slink high feet, wich are not included in the package. The one part legging shows a metallic teal top with garter belt and garters wich hold long socks or stockings where the toes peek out. I totally fell in love with those pants and so it was no question that I made them part of my “Enobaria” outfit.
The Mask as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and unrigged version.
I hope you have fun with my little Hunger Games Tribute collection available at the Hunger Games Tribute Shopping Area (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)

Play Chess with Rfyre & EMO-tions!

Rfyre 01

Today I would like to showcase the contribution of Rfyre to the Month of Games event.

The amazing “No Ones Pawn” mesh dress comes with gloves, boots and the awesome detailed head-piece. The dress itself carries a chess textured fabric and with the garters, the longer back and the short front it has a very sexy look. The gloves come with a HUD that lets you chose from different hand positions

When I did the styling and the pics I was all to the Musical Chess listening to all that amazing songs. One is an old-time favourite from mine and I had it in a turnaround quite a few times while I edited the pics, so iI would like to share it with you 😉

The hair style was one of the releases of EMO-tions for the Hairfair 2014. The “Love War” hair actually comes with an amazing headpiece, wich I will showcase in another post soon. I just liked the hair with the one braid in between the loose open hair for that look.

In the musical it’s about a snobby, intellectual chess master who visits Bangkok, capital of Thailand, for a chess championship, but is looking down on everything else that goes on there, the sex tourism and stuff like that. And he has no other interest than the chess, lol. But the devil walking next to him line, might indicate that he also feels tempted while being there. But he needs to stay focussed to win the game.

Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don’t know that the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
Show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies – doesn’t seem a minute
Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change – don’t you know that when you
Play at this level there’s no ordinary venue

It’s Iceland – or the Philippines – or Hastings – or –
or this place!

One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you’re lucky then the god’s a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One town’s very like another
When your head’s down over your pieces, brother

It’s a drag, it’s a bore, it’s really such a pity
To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town –

Tea, girls, warm, sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

Get Thai’d! You’re talking to a tourist
Whose every move’s among the purest
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

Siam’s gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a
Muddy old river or reclining Buddha

And thank God I’m only watching the game – controlling it –

I don’t see you guys rating
The kind of mate I’m contemplating
I’d let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use would not excite you

So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage
parlours –

One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

“You’ve got to go through it to get to the end of it.”

EF Designs as well made wonderful contributions to the upcoming Hunger Games Tribute event, presented by Opium Evolution.

For the hair I chose to use one of the amazing colors from the “Kiki” hair by Zibska.
My fantastic makeup artist was Madrid Solo. She made this wonderful “Checkered Past” eye makeup and the wonderful “Vendetta” lip design.

Exploring…

GizzA - Dakota Dress 01

Sometimes I am just to lazy to work and then I enjoy to just roam around and explore all the amazing sims in SL. This time my way lead me to the Neva Sky Villi.

This amazing realistic village has so many awesome spots and places, I had to take some snaps 😉

This place was built with so much love to the details, you land at a harbour, kinda as if you would have arrived om a boat and the area those pictures were made just is behind the landing point.

I immediately fell in love with th beige vespa. It looked so cute to my styling that I thought I coul have some pics done for my blog with it.

I am wearing one of the latest releases from GizzA, the “Dakota Dress” The cute dress come in combination with a cool leather jacket in many different colors. For the sim environ ment I changed to the one with a beige or cream looking dress together with a green leather jacket. The dress is made of a kinda cotton fabric and some amazing filigree ornaments decorate it on the left lower side. The delicate lade that is used for the bottom end of the dress gives the whole look a sexy touch 😉 .

The cute bag is a super old-time favourite of mine from a store that sadly is not longer round. The shoes I found at the Cosmopolitan Sale Room, made by 9ty.

And now I will look some more over this amazing sim and see for some more spots to make more pictures 😉 .

[sys] @ the Hairfair featuring Prism

Prism 001

At the moment we have hair fair and I got so many new and amazing hairstyles 🙂

One of the is my new “Hanayo” hair from [sys]. A wonderful short hairstyle with a huge decoration in the back, made of 5 amazing looking red fans and some sweet little flowers in purple and yellow. With all those wonderful acessories to the hair it gives the whole look a lightly asian touch.

The “Hanayo” hair style is not the only new release by [sys] and I soon will show you some more. For now I would lead the focus over to my wonderful “Leah” outfit from Prism.

Prism 002

This awesome knitted combination of a layer top and under pants with this beautiful mesh skirt and belt is a wonderful addition to your everyday wear, especially with the temperatures that are going on right now in the middle of summer. The “Leah” outfit can be purchased in many different color options, for my post today I chose to use the ‘news’ option with the amazing mixture of red against black and white 😉

For the shoes I took some of my Cashmere ones and  for the accessories i took my “Dark Desire” collar and the “Dark Metal Cuffs” that are sold at The Instruments at the moment.

The super amazing nail polish that you can see in the last picture is mad by Nailed It! The “Rock” set has various options for black, red and white styles and it became one of my favourite ones lately 😉 .

LOTD 07/14/2014 – News from LeeZu!

LeeZu, Emotions 01

LeeZu time again!

Again LeeZu surprises us with amazing new releases. I already blogged the “BonBon” dress, wich was made for the FFL (http://wiccamerlin.de/lotd-06242014-leezu-meets-miamai/) and today I would like to showcase some more amazing news by LeeZu.

Let’s starts with the “Cora Ruffleskirt” This sexy short mesh skirt as well was part of the FFL 2014 contributions of LeeZu. I love short skirts but as well, in my opinion, it is more sexy to cover the legs under them with something like a sheer panty hose or stockings. There are times to show those long pixel legs and then there is times where to cover them 😉 . I remembered the “Brigitte Body Tights”,  as well from LeeZu and it was the perfect addition to the “Cora Ruffleskirt”.

For the top I wanted something cool and red. I had a special love for the “Dekannche Top” before and I know, that I used it some times before but never in red 😉 .

LeeZu, Emotions 02

The boots are a cool new release from LeeZu as well. The “Mila Boots” are super cool mesh boots. They have the possibility to change the color of the laces with a HUD and as well you can resize them with a built-in resizer. Those boots are a mixture of heavy boots, with a wonderful detailed texture and the lower leg part with those huge holes makes them even fit to more than just a normal casual style 😉

LeeZu, Emotions 04

The amazing fire-red hair is called “Tariel” and comes from EMO-tions. With the sweet little tails that fall down over the shoulders and the chest and the pulled back hair at the top it was the right style to complete my look. Certainly the hair is available in more than just the fire-red tone. With the fatpack you will get all the amazing colors that we know from EMO-tions.

For the location I decided to try the actual sim environment of Bryn Oh. With that amazing dark and creepy surrounding, the look was totally matching in 😉 I explored the sim and was send home dead a few times :p . You will find killer bunnies and spooky looking dogs wich will hunt you down if you are not careful enough and keep moving. For me it was a funny and interesting trip over the sim and I just can advise you to try it as well 😉
