News from BaOba

Sightsavers Baoba fulla

ย Today I would like to show the amazing contribution of Baoba for the Sightsavers event. The amazing “Calla Green” hat. This amazing creation is the right accessory for the actual spring season. A green/white hat with an amazing Calla orchid at the top. The orchids looks so realistic with the wonderful textured white petals and the long yellow middle parts.. simply amazing!

This fresh and summer colors brought me to the idea to make a full yellow and green spring/summer look. รf I try to style colors my memory always pulls me towards my LeeZu folder ;). Leezu Baxter made amazing grey, brown and black shaded clothing but as well she did strong colors that I really love.

I started with the “Me Like It Pants” in apple green. As it was totally other green tone I wanted to break the green to not look like a frog in the end ๐Ÿ˜‰ and decided to go with the “Viela” dress top part in yellow. Since green, yellow-green and yellow are analogous colors they usually work very well if you choose the right tones.

To bring the yellow back again I put on the “Piazza Navona” ankle boots one of the latest show releases from LeeZu.For the jewelry I wanted something colorful but more modern and less elegant. I remembered the super cool “Deco” set from Baboom, combined with the “Orbital” collar from blackliquid and it matched the look perfectly, together with the new, mesh version of the “NifNif” gloves from LeeZu.

To finish off the styling I chose to put on some colorful make up, as well in green and yellow tones. My favourite store for that kind of makeups is Nuuna’s. Her crazy ideas and designs really can pimp many stylings in an awesome way ๐Ÿ™‚

TRPH #4 003half

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in itโ€™s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says โ€œThe hunt with models in mindโ€ does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybodyโ€™s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

Today I would like to showcase the contributions of Alafolie, location #24 and [mock], location #45.

Alafolie has a wonderful ready-to-wear outfit that comes with some amazing features. The sleeveless short is knotted at the right hip and the pants have an amazing shine. What makes this outfit super special, there comes a HUD with it what lets you change the textures of the pants and as well of the top. In the box that you get you will find shoes also that match the outfit, I just wanted to go with a bit more casual style instead of heels ๐Ÿ˜‰

[mock] has a set of amazing lips glosses for the TRPH #4. 3 different colors of gloss and each one in 3 different versions. All 3 colors are wonderful nude colors and add an awesome shine to your lips without being upaque like usual lipsticks ๐Ÿ™‚

Meeting an old friend of mine…

Enna Full

Sometimes you just hand around spend some free time cleaning your inventory or make new stylings when you suddenly hear the familiar sound of your IM window… “Ding Ding”. I looked up and saw that Enna Flatley was contacting me. I met Enna years ago on an RP sim and we spent quite sometime together and used to talk on a daily base. The RP vanished some when and sadly many of the old contacts as well, what is quiet normal I guess especially if you head for different directions. I chose the modeling and she already started to design clothing. But since she and her partner started mostly with Neko stuff, I twas our of my focus for alonger time. I have to admit as well that one of my long time favourite sneakers still are from back then ;). Anyways, Enna IMed me as she wanted to ask me something regarding a show she was planning to do and so we started to chat again. After some time she asked me if I would not like to come over and see her new store. She told me that she no runs her own business since her partner left SL quite a while ago.

As I landed at her Mainstore I really was surprised. No Neko stuff anymore but amazing mesh clothing for male and female. Mostly mesh made I saw various casual and sporty complete outfits, tops, pants and shoes. Enna asked me what I would like the most and I told her a few things that really caught my attention. I was not even finished tell her what I like and why, as I found various designs of hers in my inventory ;).

So this means I have some parts to play with and I would like to start with a mix and match of some parts of ENNA.

For today’s styling I had – I have no clue why – David Beckham in mind. I started with the mesh “Vintage Jeans” in dirty blue. The amazing mesh jeans are textured with amazing blue and brown shades and you nearly can feel the denim fabric and see the dust when you clap your upper leg ๐Ÿ˜‰ The folds are super amazing set and you really get the idea of a used jeans. At the ENNA Mainstore you will find 4 different colors of the “Vintage Jeans”. The “Female Jacket”, as wellย  mesh made comes with a little special feature. Driven by a HUD you can choose if you wanna wear it with or without a shirt under the jacket and you can change the color of that short with the HUD as well. With the super cool mesh “Sneakers” I really fell in love. The are so amazingly detailed, you can see every little part of the fabric and the lights and shadows make them looking really 3D. To complete my cool Beckham look, I added the “Amida” earrings and necklace from Mandala and the “Grappa Pieva” hair from LoQ.

This will be certainly not my last post about the designs from ENNA, but if you cannot wait you maybe wanna make your way over to the ENNA Mainstore and see for yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰

Gizza - Like a virgin full

Today when I was thinking about what to wear for my GizzA shift I was listening to Madonna’s song ‘Like a Virgin’ as I again was dragged in some 80’s mood. Yes I know, I have a fable for the 80’s and especially the music of that time.

I like to mix and match my outfits and so I started to look for a top that I could use for a basic for my styling. As I was trying the “Anna” gown from GizzA, I fell in love with the top part of it and decided to use it together with the collar. For the pants I chose the “Loose Denim Short”, a well from GizzA.ย  What I loked a lot was the glam looking top against the kinda used looking shorts. Usually you might think that cannot really go together, but for me it did :p . The leggings are one of the latest releases from LeeZu called “Glitter Tights” Together those parts made kinda an 80’s look for me so I went further and added the “Epaulette” shoulder piece and the cute Handkeys” in the music version. The mesh boots I found at J’s. Now I wanted to have a strong makeup that as well underlines the 80’s look and remembered the “Geometrie” makeup from *LpD*.ย  The wild, lightly messy hair “Dolce” from LeLutka was the perfect hairstyle to the whole look for me.

A last look into the mirror.. ready to go ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Runway Perfect Hunt #4 – Part 2 & Amazing News from Finesmith

TRPH #1 Halfa

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in itโ€™s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says โ€œThe hunt with models in mindโ€ does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybodyโ€™s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

The amazing “Vintage Dress Neon” is done by Silken Moon, location #4. The short mesh dress is a firework of colors. While the front is dominated by red, range and yellow the backside features the green and blue color themes.

The stylish hair comes from store #14 –ย  L+N, a very popular brand for extra ordinary hair and clothing. The wild hair looks like flames in the red/brown color and the awesome flowers at the top and the back make this a total eye catcher.

The cute shoes as well are part of TRPH and you can find them at location #13. Loordes of London contributes the “Burbleary” booties. Black booties with a red sole and green top.

Now I would like to take a closer look at the jewelry, what is not part of the hunt but matched the styling so amazingly ๐Ÿ˜‰ The new “Matbuja” set from Finesmith, is nothing that you can just wear as a ‘side acessory’. The set is something that definately pulls some focus. The huge plates of the necklace are repeated with the earrings and the bracelet is as well part of the set. What I liked a lot was the perfect mix of silver and brown/grey shades that give the whole set a very realistic look. For this post I used the platinum version but if you take a look at the Finesmith Mainstore, wou can find more amazing colors ๐Ÿ˜‰

For today I would like to spotlight the first 4 stores with a mix & match styling.

First store would be *PosESioN*, store #19. Dahriel made a little set of 5 poses called “Andromeda”, made for females only. Maybe the brave guys wanna give it a try as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

The outfit comes from location #28, Svart. Angexx Quandry created one male and one female outfit. Certainly I used the female one called “Ren”. Shorts and top are mesh made and come in various sizes to make sure that it fits all kind of avatars.

The super cool hat comes from Xen’s Hats. A blue Feodora style looking hat with an amazing texture, that really gives the hat a realistic fabric.

The amazing lips gloss was provided by [mock]. The “Mariellis Lip Shine” comes in 3 different colors and each has 3 different versions.

To complete my styling I added the “Cubism” glasses from epoque because they underlined the retro feeling, that came with the outfit and the hat,ย  in such an amazing way. The jewelry is one of my long times favourites from Mandala called “Sinra”.

The Runway Perfect Hunt will last until the 30th of May so do not hesitate too long to grab your hunt prizes ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Skater Girl

IW 001

He was a boy she was a girl
can I make it anymore obvious?

He was a punk, she did ballet
What more can I say?

He wanted her,she’d never tell
secretly she wanted him as well
but all of her friends, stuck up their nose
they had a problem with his baggy clothes.

He was a skater boy,
she said see you later boy
he wasn’t good enough for her
she had a pretty face
but her head was up in a space
she needed to come back down to earth

Five years from now, she sits at home
Feeding the baby she’s all alone

She turns on T.V., guess who she sees
Skater boy rocking up MTV

She calls up her friends, they already know
And they’ve all got tickets to see his show

she tags along, and stands in the crowd
Looks up at the man that she turned down

IW 002

He was a skater boy
She said see ya later boy
He wasn’t good enough for her
Now he’s a superstar
Slammin on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?
He was a skater boy
She said see ya later boy
He wasn’t good enough for her
Now he’s a superstar
Slammin on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?

Sorry girl, but you missed out
Well tough luck that boy’s mine now

We are more than just good friends
This is how the story ends

Too bad that you couldn’t see
See the man that boy could be

There is more than meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside

He’s just a boy and I’m just a girl
can I make it anymore obvious?

We are in love, haven’t you heard?
How we rock each others world!

I’m with the skaterboy
I said see ya later boy
I’ll be backstage after the show
I’ll be at the studio
Singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know.

Sightsavers – Baboom

Sightsavers - Baboom 001

This is a RL charity that works in some of the worlds poorest countries helping to save men, women and children from blindness.

Specifically, we wish to support their work in battling a disease called trachoma. This is caused by a bacterial infection spread by unwashed hands and certain species of flies.ย  Infection causes scarring of the eyelid, repeated infection causes the eyelid to turn inwards and the eyelashes to scrape against the cornea damaging it.

Years of repeated infections of trachoma cause trichiasis, when the eyelid turns inwards and the eyelashes rub on the eyeball, causing scarring of the cornea, constant irritation and terrible pain. In their desperation, many people pull out the in-turned eyelashes with a pair of tweezers. But the eyelashes always grow back, even stronger than before โ€“ bringing worse pain. Until slowly, they go blind.

The additional tragedy is that trachoma is such an easy disease to prevent. Trachoma can be treated in it’s early stages with antibiotics to clear-up the infection. Antibiotic treatment can be provided for less than $1.00 US dollar.

Once people have trichiasis, surgery is needed to turn the eyelashes away from the eye, reducing the pain and preventing the scarring of the cornea. Just $5.00 US dollars can fund a trichiasis operation.

Kim Rongyu, the CEO of this charity event, has lived in some of the countries where this awful disease exists, Through her RL experience, she knows how damaging this is and as a RL scientist, how easy it is to prevent. We are reaching out to the amazing talents of Second Life, creators and designers, to ask if you would like to join us for this cause, to raise funds to be donated to Sightsavers organization.

Today I would like to spotlight the contibution of Baboom for the Sightsavers event in Second Life.

Kyra Camel, owner and designer of Baboom, made a stunning dress in 3 colors to support the Sightsavers event. For today’s post I decided to wear the green version of the “Flora” mesh dress. The dress is a long tight shaped dress with an amazing shoulder free top end. The mesh prim moves smoothly with every animation and the wonderful light ornaments on the light green it is a wonderful spring dream dress. 100% of the “Flora” dress, anyways which of the 3 amazing colors goes to the Sightsavers charity. Thanks a lot Kyra for those amazing designs!

Rawk Balla Baby with Faster Pussycat

Faster Pussycat 003

A few days ago I had the great pleasure to walk a runway show for the Menswear Fashion Week 2013. The show was called “Rawk Balla Baby” and it was the only “Ladies only” show for the MWFW 2013 as far as I know ;). The runway was made by Locked Semaphore and it looked like a huge guitar and some floating keyboards… it was simply amazing.

For this show I got some wonderful outfits to showcase and I wanted to spotlight at least some of them. The first would be a combination of Faster Pussycat designs.

Faster Pussycat 002

I tweaked my show styling a little bit, to meet my personal taste and style a bit more for the blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ The amazing “Maja” corset in red, is a firework of textures combined on just one corset. Parts of paintings, overlaid by a wonderful structured layer makes the corset very realistic looking. The corset really makes a super shape with the very slim waist part, who ever closed that corset had no mercy with the girl in it :p. The “Mesh Pencil Skirt” in black is the perfect addition for the “Maja” corset as the simple black skirt let s the corset shine even more. I always loved Honey Bender’s ideas and styles and with her label Faster Pussycat, she 95% totally hits the nail on my head and I just adore her creations and designs ๐Ÿ˜‰

The shoes, that I as well got for the show, came from Redgrave. The “Doro” shoes are super cool with the high heel, the peep toes and the little metal decorations. They come with an amazing HUD that lets you change the colors in nearly all possibilities ๐Ÿ˜‰ To underline the cool rocker look I added some strapped gloves from Dark Eden together with the amazing TonkTastic gloves.

The fantastic eyebrow tattoo comes from Silken Moon. As I decided to go without any eyebrows, black hair sometimes let my face look odd. Malicia found the solution and made some very artistic and abstract eyebrows that look like I would have painted me some eyebrows ๐Ÿ˜‰ For this post I decided to go with the “Abstract” eyebrow tattoo.

For the location was looking for some rock club or even Rock’n’Roll club but I did not find some at the places I used to be. I started to look at the search and it brought me to the “13Cherry“. A super tiny but amazing club high up in the sky. It has a lot of amazing detailes and it was just perfect for the idea I had in mind ๐Ÿ˜‰
