New Late Autumn Look at GizzA

GizzA - Woolen 001

Autumn gets colder and colder and the winter is right before us. I still try to tell myself it is late autumn but if I look outside… I get shown different*sighs* And even if I turn up the heat in my apartment… I afraid, I will not escape the winter outside. To bring back a bit of warmer feelings I could not resist to try the new “Woolen Series” and to get the warmer type of colors I went to one of my favourite places to snap the pictures – at the Looking Glass sim.

GizzA - Woolen 002

The “Knitted Crop Top” might let me freeze a little but the style of it lets me suffer*grins*. The top is mesh made and with the 2 belts round the waist and right under the dress it has a very sexy look. The “Tartan Mini Skirt” really is something I would wear RL as well. I like the pattern and the combination of the soft warm colors with a touch of red that goes perfectly with the “Knitted Crop Top”. I added the black version of the “Epaulette Set”. This accessoriy is out of the gacha at GizzA and it has many other amazing colors as well. The super cool mesh boots are my long time favourites of LeeZu. The “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” are the perfect addition to cover most of the legs so I will at least have warm feet ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

The “Woolen Series” are now available in different colors at the GizzA Mainstore.

The lipstick is one of the newest releases from Silken Moon. The “Luna Lips Bonfire” have the perfect red tone to match the whole look. The fingernails are colored with one of the Slink enhancer HUD’s from Nailed It.

For the poses I used some of my own poses out of several sets. All of them you can buy single or in a fatpack at my new Mainstore at the Crazy Connection.

News at Wicca’s Wardrobe!!! – The “Show Off” Set

WM - Poses Show Off Set

And again I did it :p .ย A new pose set has arrived at Wicca’s Wardrobe. The new “Show Off” set did grow out of a styling with the awesome “Au Revoir Sade” coat from LeeZu. I wanted to have some poses who have a smart and sexy touch for this styling. The focus for this poses were on the hips and legs since they can be seen. Certainly you can use those poses for every other styling with or without coats as well ๐Ÿ™‚ .

WM - Poses Show Off Set - Fatpack

As usual all of the poses have smooth transitions so you can use them as runway poses or modeling poses as well besides just making pictures with them. The poses are sold single via the pose stands in my store and as fatpacks out of the boxes that are hanging on the wall. I hope you like them and try them out in my new store at Crazy Connection ๐Ÿ™‚ at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/27/82/22

Black & White Riding Hood?

Mea Culpa & EMO-tions 001

Black & White looks always were a favourite of mine. Today I wanted another one and for the basic I started with one of the pret a porter dresses from Mea Culpa. The simple mesh dress is highlighted with a typical Mea Culpa made texture. The strength of Tatanka’s textures we know from various designs he made in the past. For his pret a porter line he has a lot of pieces and designs that look very simple on the first view, but on the second view you will see the delicate and extravagant textures and the little attachments that make evenย  the pret a porter line of Mea Culpa to something special.

Mea Culpa & EMO-tions 002

The “Antares” dress from Mea Culpa makes a wonderful shape line and with the amazing shoulder parts it is a wonderful basic for many kinds of styling.

The headpiece and hair reminded me of the “Red Riding Hood” even if the hood is black ๐Ÿ˜‰ . It is the new “Mary-Anne” hairstyle from EMO-tions. EMO-tions released a full line of hair pieces with bangs and various head pieces like caps and beanies and hoods. The interesting new feature is that you get a HUD for the fatpack. No more collecting tons of items in your inventoryย  – just the basic style with a HUD that chnages the hair color and as well the hairstyle under the hood or cap ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

The amazingย  necklace and bracelet are a gacha item from GizzA. The “Electra Set” in black was the perfect addition to the styling, as I only needed a necklace and a bracelet. The wonderful nail polish comes from Nail It. Giela Delpaso made several amazing nail polishes for the slink mesh hands and the “French Manicure – Dart Set” has amazing colors with the typical white top of the french manicure. The special on the Nail It nails is that you always have a prim version and one HUD version for the slink mesh hands and feet. So you can decide whether you wanna wear the mesh hands or your original avatar hands.

The lipstick is one of the latest releases from Silken Moon. The “Luna Lips” come with a special feature. You can decide, if you would like to have your lips closed or lightly parted with a teeth prim attachment. Both version will be in the “Luna Lips” pack that you are purchase.

The boots i found at one of the Colabour88 events from ISON. The “Lace-Up Gladiator Sandals” are working with the slink medium mesh feet, so you can make sure to have the best match for your skin tone with your enhancement HUD applier for your slink mesh feet.

The cool chair comes from 22769 [bauwerk]. I wanted to add some furniture to my post and the “Kafka Black” chair in shape of an insect really kicked my mind. It added a special touch of weirdness and surrealism to my picture, what I really love ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Medusa from *PosESioN*

Medusa 001

One of the latest releases of PosESioN is the “Medusa” pose set. I was so happy when my wonderful brother Dahriel askd me if I would like to model for the vedor of the “Medusa” set.

Madusa Vendor

I had so much with the stylingย  that I decided to try some more poses of the “Medusa” set and went to find some greek looking places for the right abience of my Medusa ;). All the poses of the “Medusa” set are very strong and expressive. In the set you will get 10 different poses and one pose as well is mirrowed so you can find the right view and angle for your picture.

Medusa 003

For the styling I remembered the amazing “Medusa” outfit from Enzo Champagne, owner and designer of Champagne – Sparkling Fashion. He made this amazing outfit, with all the cool snakes and the amazing huge headpiece. I decided to take the headpiece and the waist corset with the attached skirt and huge snakes.ย  The skirt has an interesting feature… you can enable amazing snake sounds that give the outfitย  a very special mood ;). The neck corset repeats the waist corset in a wonderful way and builds a wonderful frame for the black corset and pants.

For the top i choseย  the corset of the “Sablier” outfit from LeeZu together with the “Glitter Pants” as well from Leezu.

Medusa 002

For the skin I chose one of the “Morbida” skins of Silken Moon. The “Morbida” skin line of Silken Moon has some very special and outstanding makeups. For today’s styling I chose the “Morbida Lizzie” with those awesome eye makeup and the wonderful reptile looking ornaments on the cheeks. I only added one of the lipsticks that Malicia made for my custom skin in the apple color, to match the snakes. I rarely saw a grey skin that has so amazing details and so great made shadows and lights that you still get a super realistic vision of a skin.

For the shoulder snake I found the “Kaa” snake of deviousMinds. Those cool mesh snakes were part of a gacha and you could get them in different colors.

Electrifying news by Mea Culpa & EMO-tions

Mea Culpa - Sirius 001

Today I was in a crazy color mood when I unpacked all my new things. The basic for today’s styling was one of the new releases from Mea Culpa called “Sirius”. The “Sirius” dress is part of the new pret a porter line of Mea Culpa. Tatanka Kaligawa, owner and designer of Mea Culpa, made a special line with new mesh dresses, skirts and tops that are sold for under 1000 lindens.

Mea Culpa - Sirius 002

Sometimes you just wanna go out and meet friends or just go for a window shopping tour. Then you do not wanna dress up too extravagant but maybe you still search for something that has something special or extravagant. The bright and strong colors of the “Sirius” really inspired me to do a colorful post.

To underline the strong colors I decided to wear some extraordinary makeup from Nuuna’s. I combined the “Warp” makeup in green with the “Tiia” in purple and added a lipstick, Malicia Python from Silken Moon made for me.

The wonderful red hair, is one of the newer mesh hair of EMO-tions. The “Maja” hair is a non symmetric hairstyle and with the mesh technique it goes wonderfully with all your moves.

Halloween with Mea Culpa & Silken Moon

Mea Culpa - Crow 002

Halloween is not too far away and SL’s top designers already released their Halloween collections and items. I would like to do a series of Halloween 2013 looks and decided to start with one of the latest releases from Mea Culpa.

Mea Culpa - Crow 001

The “Lunar Crow” is the perfect styling for an avant garde Halloween look. For all of those who prefer a couture look instead of a scary, cruel looking style, the “Lunar Crow” will be the right choice. The outfit is partwise mesh made. The skirt and the neck corset are mesh made and combined with the prims of the hat and the moving prims of the shoulder parts it makes a perfect match between old and new design tools. The layers are made with a delicate lace texture and the huge headpiece adds an extra avant touch.

Mea Culpa has an awesome Halloween special! Till Halloween on the 31st ofย  October, there will be different Halloween matching outfits for a special discount of 50% off!!! This is a chance, you should not miss… one of the great Mea Culpa designs for only the half prize!!!

Every week, there will be a selection of outfits that are set to 50% off. This week it is the “Black Mamba” (http://wiccamerlin.de/mea-culpa-goes-fetish-fashion/), the “Call of the Siren” (http://wiccamerlin.wordpress.com/2012/12/21/news-and-spectacular-christmas-special-at-mea-culpa/) and the “Dark Desire” (http://www.flickr.com/photos/meaculpahighfashion/6303396627/)

For all the males – do not be sad you have as well your Mea Culpa Halloween special. If you wanna know what it is this week just take a peek at the new Mea Culpa Mainstore! (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Himmafushi%20Island/127/141/23)

The nails are my favourite ones from Formanails. The “Madonna Skeleton” nails are prim nails, that fit to the regula avatar hands.

The incredible makeup comes out of the hand of Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon. The “Kabuki” makeup is one of the new releases, and for me it was the perfect match for today’s Halloween styling. The strong and dark ornaments round the eyes give you a certain kinda mystic look and together with the lip stripe that has that sharp line going down… it just caught my heart ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Dark Femme Fatale with GizzA & Finesmith

GizzA & Finesmith 002

Days get shorter, colder and my favourite season of the years starts… the mystical autumn.

Autumn contains some of my most favourite days like Halloween. I like the dark and foggy ambience what always has something dreamy and creepy scary when the sun goes down ;). This is the time of the little scary stories, which I really love a lot. Anyways if legends or fairy tales, I like the feeling that you have when you sit inside your house, the wind blows outside and shadows play little games outside ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

GizzA & Finesmith 001

I am sure that the new “Femme Fatale” outfit from GizzA was not meant to be shown in a dark and scary way but my mind was so much caught by the darkness of the season that I could not resist ๐Ÿ˜‰ . The “Femme Fatale” in black is a huge folder with many parts and items, which make an amazing ready-to-wear outfit. What first caught my eyes was the long, sheer mesh coat with the amazing frills. The sheer coat makes it possible that you can see the awesome mesh corset, the beautiful lace body and the super cool mesh overknee boots. Even the wonderful eye makeup is included.

To underline the dark look I decided to wear the “Black Bride” horns from Finesmith, with the veil made of branches. For the jewelry as well I added some parts of the amazing Finesmith jewelry, the “Shiraz” earrings and necklace in onyx.

The “Diavolo” hair from Vanity hair was the best match in name and style to complete my dark “Femme Fatale”. For the skin I was wearing my new and updated “Wicca Lumee Lunette” skin from Silken Moon. Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon, will kill me, if I do not add that the green tone, that my skin got came from my windlight settings as the skin itself carries the popular lumee tone of her new Eclipse skin line ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Buccaneer – New Expressive Male Poses at Wicca’s Wardrobe!

WM - Poses Buccaneer Set

Not too long ago I had the honor to sponsor the opening show of the Autumn Symphony shows of Solo Evane with my poses. It was the first time I was asked and so I was quite a bit nervous ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Usually I make poses I need for my own pictures of blog, so this was something new to me, especially the male poses. It was a challenge for me to think of expressive and interesting poses for the guys and it was fun as well to make them ๐Ÿ™‚ .

The “Buccaneer Set” is one of the new male sets I made for my little store Wicca’s Wardrobe. I wanted to make some poses that are not just simple runway poses since I love it if the poses are expressing something. That is as well the reason for the name. A Buccaneer for me is a strong and powerful guy, so I thought the name matches the poses ;). Thank you Malicia for the help with the name ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

I am very happy and grateful that my brother Dahriel accepted, as I asked him if he would pose for the vendor. He made a kick ass avantgarde styling, what underlined the intention of the poses so well. Thank you for that and your time bro!

I recently moved my store to be together with Dahriel and Malicia. I was so happy and as well lucky as they asked me, if I would like to join them since I love both of them and as well love working with them. So I joined the Crazy Connection at the NEW sim. (Taxi: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/18/67/24)

Like always you can buy the poses single via the pose stand and as well as a fatpack with a little discount via picture with the fatpack sign ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Wicca’s Wardrobe at the Couturier’s Docks!

WM - Elegant Evening Set

Today’s post is very special for me ๐Ÿ™‚ . I was invited to be part of the Couturier’s Docks with my new brand Wicca’s Wardrobe. Some of you might know already that I started making poses for my blog posts and pictures. At some point people asked me why I would not sell them… and so my store Wicca’s Wardrobe was born ๐Ÿ˜‰ . I thought a lot of what kind of poses I would like to do, as I have many dear friends who make poses and as well there is a lot of pose stores on the grid already. So I decided not to make only runway poses. I wanted to do ‘Poses for Purposes’. Sets of 5 poses who always are made for a special purpose, like huge hats or cool handbags. Tha’s as well the reason, why all my pose sets carry kinda funny names as they always kinda tell what they are made for.

You can imagine, how happy and excited I was. when I got asked if I would like to be part of the Couturier’s Docks of Mila Tatham. The Couturier’s Docks are a special place at SaliMar, where all those amazing and popular designers sell special items, which are limited to 50 pieces each. For me it was – and is – a huge honor that I may be part of that. I wanted to create a very special set for this event.

It was kinda fate that, at the time when I was thinking what set I could make, I met a very dear friend of mine. Sazzy Nirpaw, in the past she was one of my students and over the time a wonderful friendship developed. She popped in my IMs and asked me if I could take a look at one of her stylings. She always dresses very classy and elegant but never boring what I really admire. As I saw her in that fabulous outfit an idea was born in my head for a pose set. I asked her if she would have some time to work with me on a pose set, that would go with her amazing outfit. She agreed and so we started working. After some time the “Elegant Evening Set” was born ๐Ÿ™‚ . Thank you so much Sazzy for your time and patience!

The “Elegant Evening Set” is a special set for… like the name says.. an elegant evening outfit, that as well works with a little clutch. The poses are not only safe and nice, they have some edges that let every fashionista shine with pride and self-esteem.

Only 50 sets of the “Elegant Evening Set” are available at the Couturier’s Docks and quite some already got sold. So if you wanna own your special “Elegant Evening Set”, make your way over to SaliMar, where the Couturier’s Docks are located ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

GizzA – Burlesque Corset varied ;)

GizzA - Cadett in Red 001

Do you know the feeling if you think that the whole world is against you and every day something new stupid or bad happens… that’s how I feel lately. My doggie was bitten badly and since then she turned into a psycho after being my angel for 10 years. She seems to have a bad trauma now and it will need a lot of time and love to let her recover from that. My RL moving as well went not that smooth as I hoped and that holds me back a lot from being online and blogging. Many more small things added up to a point where I felt no power anymore. But as always it has to go on and so you mobilize a last time all what you have left and throw yourself into something that’s called life ;).

Yesterday finally I made 85% of my movement to the new apartment and so I just have 2 weeks left till I finally can leave this place here and start over new in my new appartment*happy dance*

I had a few time left last night and so I snapped a few pics so that I at least can blog something, after being so slow for a few weeks ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

GizzA - Cadett in Red 002

Today I would like to showcase my look I made for my GizzA workshift. The new “Burlesque Corset” got blogged quite a few times with amazing and beautiful pictures out of the Burlesque genre, so I wanted to to something different. With the red and gold version of the “Burlesque Corset” I came across the idea of a fashionable cadet look. I added the pants from the “Lordly” outfit as well from GizzA and the “Epaulette” shoulder parts that are available in various colors at the GizzA Mainstore from one of the gachas. The necklaces and chains are part of the “Epaulette” shoulder parts, so I skipped any kind of necklace to not overload the whole look. The amazing “Asia” bracelets with the leather parts, chains and watches were a good addition to complete my cadet look.

To add a female and sexy touch I put on the “Tall Leather Thigh Boots” from Slink. Then I wanted to wear one of those berets that make it even a bot more cadet looking. I looked all over but I could find none that matched in color nor did I like the shape of the most. I started a few ago to experiment with mesh and sculpties for designing clothes and I remembered that in one of those huge packs of sculpts there was a beret somewhere… ok.. i just will make my own one. I tried until I was satisfied with the texture, light and shadows and… tataaaaa my own beret that matched the look!
