Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday…

Lybra & EMO-tions 003

And again I find myself in a dark and fantasy mood and with he Fantasy Gacha items from EMO-tions and the amazing outfit from Lybra it kinda put itself together one by one 😉

In my case dark mood does not mean automatically bad mood ;). I just enjoy dark stylings a lot and sometimes they might look  bit depressive but in general I just love that mood and look.

Lybra & EMO-tions 001

I started with the amazing “Mantus” hair from EMO-tions. It is a hairstyle that comes with so many different options that you have so much more than just one hairstyle if you purchase the “Mantus” hair style.

You can choose between hairbase with a bun or bangs only. Furthermore you can use the flexi pony tail or the rigged mesh one and add some upper hair on top of the hair base as well like I did for the rigged pony tail in my today’s styling. As well I used the face chains and horns, wich as well are in the whole package!

Now for this amazing fantasy hair I wanted to make something special and the “Captive Heart” outfit from Lybra came to my mind. A super sexy but as well very strong-looking ensemble.

The long sleeved top has an amazing front wich parts below the chest and gives a sexy peek on your belly. The bra part itself is decorated with some silver studs. The short and seductive hot pants and even more sexyness to the whole look. The huge chain wings really caught my heart. It must have taken days to put those together.

More and more an idea for the complete look did grow in my head and certainly it was a dark fantasy one, my favourite styles anyway 😉

I remembered the “Bellona” set from EMO-tions, wich is part of the Fantasy Gacha Fair at the moment. If you get all parts you have a wonderful collar, forearm and hand parts.

The “Lady of Highgarden” shoulder parts from aisling I found at a gacha event that was all about the Game of Thrones series.

Now with all the fantasy gear there was no way to just go with ‘common’ shoes. I had to use my super old “Kali Hooves” from Violet Studios.

The finish made the “Birdy” body tattoo from White Widow and one of my long time favourites makeup from Nuuna’s.

At this point I really need to say a few words. Usually for events I keep it to the facts, but for this creations there is a wonderful artistic background. Trinity Yazimoto, owner and designer behind Petite Chat (*PC*), is a wonderful artist. She tries to bring her art to her clothing. Like you can see in the first picture, to nearly every dress there is a painted picture as a base. I talked to her about it – she really is a wonderful and kind lady –  and she told me about how difficult it is to apply the painted art to the mesh prims. Mesh reacts very weird to some textures, so you can imagine how long it takes Trinity until the actual picture shows perfect on the designs! I will try to make another post in the near future where I can spotlight this amazing creations a little more 😉 .

Steampunk Fever!

Steampunk 001

Lately I was kinda affected by a Steampunk fever… I have no clue why, but each part of my body wanted to do something steampunk. Kara Trapdoor did even more throw me in that direction, when she IMed me, asking if I would like to be part of a steampunk exhibit done by bloggers. This wonderful exhibit started on the 4th of May 2014 and many of amazing bloggers made incredible pictures of steampunk sims, gear and fashion.

Steampunk Exhibit: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Station/182/122/1028

Steampunk Exhibit Poster

In SL I did not find too many steampunk designs so I decided this could be a reason to make some things, how I would imagine steampunk.

I started with a gown, the “Araminta” steampunk gown. When I finished it, in my view it looked a bit too elegant and I decided the gown has to have a jacket with it.

Steampunk Gown Vendor

When the gown was finished, the more I looked at it, the more I wanted a hat for it. I started with a simple top hat and added more and more gear and a head band closed in the back, until I was satisfied with it. To match the color of the gown was not that easy and took me quite some time and cursings but in the end it worked out :p .

Steampunk Hat Vendor

Steampunk 002

The glasses I am wearing are made by Crie Style, one of the most skilled designer if it comes to glasses and eye wear.

Gown, Hat… so what s missing? The gown can be worn as a long and wide and a short and tight version, so I decided to make some neat booties matching both of the dresses even if they only can be seen with the short version 😉 .

Steam Booties Vendor

The “Araminta” steampunk gown and jacket comes in the 5 usual standart sizes plus the needed alpha layers. The normal prims of each of the 3 designs are either mod, or have a resizer so that you can make sure to make it fit your avatar.

I hope you liked my little steampunk journey and all of the items are now available at the Wicca’s Wardrobe Mainstore 🙂 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/96/141/22)

Pink & Red does not go together?

Vista, Finesmith EMOtions 001a

There are these days where you feel the little rebel inside you… Many times you get told you cannot do this, you cannot fo that, that does not work, this will never go together and if you have one of those little rebel days you just need to prove them all wrong even by doing mistakes sometimes that you will never admit :p .

Today there was such a day and when I was looking through my inventory more and more the idea of a pink and red styling was growing in my mind.

I anyways wanted to blog the new “AV Straight Leather Jeans” from Vista, so I started out with them, after I saw this fantastic red tone in the HUD. The Jeans come in various versions in different length. Usually you have the problem, that if you would like to wear some cool shoes with mesh pants, you always run into trouble, that they just eat up the shoes or you get some weird flickering if you try to add boots over the pants. With the “AV Straight Leather Jeans” those times are over. 5 different length of the pants make it possible that you can experiment with different shoes or boots. For today’s post I decided to go with the number 2 version, as I found the cool and as well funny “Abdomination Bitey Meaty Boots” from Curio Obscura and the number 2 was the perfect one for the half-long boots.

Vista, Finesmith EMOtions 002a

Dressed with pants and boots.. maybe a little too less :p . What to wear for the top… ? I was sure I wanted to use one of the latest releases from Finesmith, the “Iris” set, but what to wear as a basic as I did not wanna go half-naked. It should be something soft, which does not overload the upper part of the body with the “Iris” set, plus I wanted to have a very soft pink to bring back the baby pink of the “Abdomination Bitey Meaty Boots”. The “Valerie Blouse” from LeeZu was the perfect choice. With the delicate and super amazing detailed texture and the awesome soft pink color it makes a great base for the jewelry.

Because the jewelry had such an amazing and huge headpiece and I was wearing the jeans, which give the whole out fit kinda a cool touch, I wanted to wear some really short, fresh and modern hair. The “Cameron” hair style from EMO-tions exactly looked how I wanted it to for this look.
The reason why I used the grey tone for the hair was, that I wanted to repeat the metal color of the jewelry.

Now the look itself was done but I still missed the little i-dot. Then all of a sudden I remembered the “”Skeletonia” hand jewelry from Formanails. This idea of the skeleton hand wrapped over the avatar hand is something that has a little story to it. Back then before we had Slink hands I always was looking about something new and crazy for accessories. At Formanails I found a skeleton hand, made of prims that covered the back of the hand inspired by Madonna. I was wearing that hand jewelry in forever and ever so often that I nearly cannot count it anymore and I never found something similar. After i upgraded my avatar with the Slink hands I really missed this accessory badly. When I talked the last time to Ivi Bing, owner and designer of Formanails, I told her, that I discovered her store over that wonderful hand accessory years ago, that I really miss it so much with the Slink hands and all of a sudden she sent me over 3 versions of the “Skeletonia”. She made it for 2 different versions of the Slink hands – casual, elegant and elgant1. This so made my day! I have my skeleton hand jewel back in an updated version with a HUD that lets you change the colors of the gems and some more little details like the safety pins and barbwire parts. Thank you Ivi!

And now… Pink & Red does not go together?
