Wicca’s Wardrobe: Black Magic Butterflies

Solidea, E-CLipse, Cliche 001

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young witch, she practiced white magic and tried to do good to all the creature that sought her help. When she became the age of marrying she wasย courted by three handsome young men, a count who promised her power if she helped his county to prosper,ย  a rich man who promised her wealth if she saw to his business with her skills and a wizard who promised her everything and asked for nothing.

Whom would you have taken? The wizard, right? Well thatโ€™s what the young witch did,ย  and soon regretted. He wanted her powers to make them the most powerful magicians that ever lived. She did not yield to the temptations of dark magic, but the disappointment made her magic turn darker. And she left.

So she went to see the rich merchant, but he was a vain man and grudged her choosing the wizard first. The count acted just the same. Bitter with the rejection her magic went almost black. But it was not in her to do harm and punish the men that hurt her.

She looked around and saw that the county was a really beautiful place, and a pretty butterfly even made her smile. So she decided to try to live a happy life on her own. Going far away. And the butterflies followed her, they did not want to live with the count, the rich merchant and the wizard. Ever since, there was not one butterfly to be seen in the county.

Crazy Connection: Minimal Style with NYU

nyu-face

“The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but youโ€™ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. Thatโ€™s whatโ€™s really going to make you look like youโ€™re ready to rock the world.”

โ€” Alicia Keys

Sometimes you do not need much to express yourself. Simplicity can be the key as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not too long ago, I only knew Dahriel by name, before Raven Pennyfeather, owner and designer of RFyre, brought us together ๐Ÿ˜‰ We started to do pics together and more and more we discovered that we have a lot of things together depending on fashion style and even personality. Sometimes it is just scaring how close alike we think and act. For me it is not something that happened a lot, that you know a person for not too long and already feel you would have known this person for your whole life. I am very grateful that Raven played fate and introduced us to each other ๐Ÿ˜‰

The more we worked on pictures, the more we both discovered that we would like to make more out of our ideas and just post together sometimes. We kind wanted to have a project together.ย  We both are busy bees, Dahriel with his pose store *PosESioN* and me with blogging teaching and modeling but still we wanted to use the little free time to make something together. As we were asked for doing a column for a magazine, the “Crazy Connection” was born.

We both like the non usual and the different view on things, as well we like to have fun and be creative and we both felt kinda connected to each other, so the name was just perfect ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today we wanted to make something special with a minimal style. What could fit better to start with as the wonderful creations of Nyunyu Kimono, owner and designer of NYU – Minimalistic High Fashion Couture. Dahriel picked the “Cropped Jumpsuit” and the “Tux Loafers” from NYU while I decided to go with the “Cotton Dress” with the “Cotton Cuffs” and the “Collared Bow Heels”.

Dahriel had the idea to use one of the cool buildings from Ewan Crumb for the scenery and he made the 2 poses we are using… I am sure that he will soon sell them at *PosESioN* ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the skins we wanted something very pale that goes with the white stylings and Dahriel decided to wear one of his favourite skins from Fruk, while I used one of the new skins by Silken Moon. The blindfold was kinda the perfect finish for the whole look and it felt like a strong symbol for being open-minded and not just to believe what you can see ๐Ÿ™‚

We hope you enjoyed our simple and minimalistic journey.

Casual Fever with M.o.w, *PosESioN* & In-Pose

Mow 001a

Sometimes I catch myself with a very casual mood – Yes, not that often but sometimes it just happens ๐Ÿ˜‰ This time it was Dahriel, who made me go pink and white… I catched him at our platform, where we both have our photo studios and he was wearing pink and white and I remembered, that I have something similar from M.o.w. If you wanna see the details of Dahriel‘s styling just take a look at his post (http://wiccamerlin.de/?p=10635) He just finished one of his new couple poses for *PosESioN* – his amazing pose store – and so he snapped a quick picture of me and him with the new “YAY!” pose ๐Ÿ™‚ After I was playing with the snapshot in PS for a while, I decided to make it the opener picture for this post as it turned out so nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mow 002

Now I would like to take a closer look on my own styling for this post. Like I said before the basic for the whole outfit are the amazing creations of M.o.w. The “Utopia Jeans” and the “Unisex Armwarmers” in white are from M.o.w. For the top I just added an old tank top from Maitreya. Now for some shoes… according to the sporty casual outfit I tried sneakers and chucks and what not and all I tried did not really satisfy me… I needed some contrast! All of a sudden I came across the “British Lofers” from Redgrave and they made the perfect contrast for the special look ๐Ÿ˜‰ The huge necklace is the “Hannya” one from Mandala, one of my long time favourites. The hair comes from LeLutka and is called “Cheryl”.

Mow 004

The skin is one of the latest releases from Silken Moon. The “Eclipse Lumee” skin is a very light skin, with amazing relistic details, amazing lights and shadows, this special, mystical and very light glow and it went perfect with the darkblonde/pink hair. I just added some makeup out of the new “Eclipse” line to give the eyes a little bit more accent and ready was the perfect look ๐Ÿ™‚ The “Lumee” skin tone is perfect for all the ones who like the very light and pale high fashion look.

in-pose - fever

For all the poses – except the very first one – I used a brand new set from Trinity Graves, owner and designer of In-Pose. The new “Fever” set is just as crazy as I am and that is why I liked it so much from the very first moment she sent it to me ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you liked my short casual and very pink trip… while I am writing this and look at the pics I cannot even belive that I did this on a free will*giggles*… me casual and then even in white and pink… scandalous ๐Ÿ˜‰ I guess I need to rest in my wonderful couch chair for a bit and calm down, while I think what was in my coffee yesterday morning that I see my self in pink, white and blonde :p

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Winter Dreams

Miamai, EMO-tions, Finesmith Full

This week we had a nother wave of snow in germany and I was grumbling a lot for having the black card of being the one who had to clean the pavement in front of my house from the snow. So I thought I can try to get a better mood for snow, when I make some dreamy winter mood images in SL ๐Ÿ˜‰

I started with the “Carley” gown from Miamai. The long shoulder free gown was perfect as a basic for the little winter beauty. For the even more elegant touch I added the bolero of the new “Riga” outfit from SoliDea FoliEs.

The hair is one of the latest releases from EMO-tions called “Solitude” and for the jewelry I decided to go with the “Nur” set from Finesmith.

The makeup comes from a lady I know for a long time and she came back to SL with her new brand – The Makeup Artist. I am talking about Talyia Tarber. I combined the “Angelic Lace Candy” with the “Black Female Swan” and added my favourite lipstick from Silken Moon, “Wicca Lips Lead”.

For snapping the pics I remembered a place where Natzuka brought me once for a shoot The wonderful ambience of the alirium sim, with the pink colors and the snow just made the illusion of a winder dream complete for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Crazy Connection: – M.o.w.’s Style –

Dahriel & Wicca CC

(Models: Dahriel & Wicca; Snapshot & Artwork by Dahriel)

I already posted about that Dahriel and me discovered an amazing cool shop for casual clothing called M.o.w. We both already blogged about that brand in the last days and we thought we maybe could do one together ๐Ÿ˜‰

As we started to do pics together none of us yet had the idea of where this team work would bring us. But after the pictures got seen by a few ppl and we got a quite nice and good response on them we talked more and more doing pics and posts together. Lately a magazine approached us if we would not wanna share a few pics and the style cards for a small column. That was the moment when the “Crazy Connection” was born, because we needed a name for the column and as well for our teamwork ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dahriel as always is way faster as I am with the pictures so he already started the post with the picture and the style card. I asked him if he would mind if, I add some words to it and my edited version of his snapshot.

So for today and the first official post of the “Crazy Connection“, Dahriel and me styled some of the M.o.w. designs that we both got. As I still cannot snap pictures with shadows, Dahriel made the snapshot and send it to me. The picture you can see at the beginning of the post is the version Dahriel edited. I could not resist this time to work a bit in Photoshop as well on that amazing snapshot and at the bottom I would like to share my version as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

We used the “Pleasure” couple pose of PosESioN, that Dahriel made lately and soon will release in his Mainstore as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you all enjoyed the birth of a wonderful project and give Dahriel a warm welcome to “Fashion Addicted“. I hope that we will have many “Crazy Connection” posts besides Dahriel and my single ones.
