Wicca’s Wardrobe: Having fun with my Inventory and sneak in Lovely’s^^

My inventory is a mess most of the times with all the blogging items, new releases and the stuff I buy, cause I think I have tome to blog it still *lol*.Β  But I have to admit I love my mess *giggles* Sometimes it gives me christmas more than once during the year if I discover something I never thought of :). Lately I found a super cute outfit from Inga Wind, designer and owner of Inga Wind Clothing sitting in my inventory. I put it on and really liked it.

The “Codie Jumpsuit” really is a cool outfit for the everyday wardrobe and with the cuteness it has by itself I could combine it wonderful with some accessories, without pushing it in the back of the view. “Codie” is made of lots of different shades of blue and as well many different fabrics. The chest part is kinda ruffles while the rest of the body is more straight. The sweet lines that hold the top in place are made with prims and the exact same look you will find for the belt. The neat cap completes the cool casual blue look πŸ˜‰

The jewelry for this amazing blue look comes from Mandala as I thought the textures and the style would go amazing with each other and for me it did :p

The shoes are a combination of the new “Oxa” mesh ankle boots by Baiastice and the “Legwarmer for heels” from G Field. Sissy Pessoa, owner and designer of Baiastice, released wonderful new mesh ankle boots in uni colors and a special edition of mixed colors, I will have them soon here on my blog as well :).

As I was roaming around in my little box in side of Lovely’s Inventory (if you now ask yourself why that, just read here: http://wiccamerlin.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/lovelymi-facetattoos-makeups-more/ πŸ™‚ It was a sweet little fun Lovely did not too long ago πŸ˜‰ ) I decided to walk out and peek a bit through Lovely’s inventory. I found a lot of cool makeups lying around and some stuff of House of Rage, what she designed and worked on. As well al lot of pictures and other clothing, suddenly I saw a folder called “[MIWA] Poses”… now I became curious… Lovely does poses? I sneaked inside the folder with my mini digi cam and tried the out. The were so cool that I had to snap them… then I heard a rumble going on outside and realized Lovely is back and was working something in her inventory! I grabbed my cam left the poses and sneaked back to my box hiding… but take a look what I got…

Modeling poses by Morphine

Lately I discovered that Hadaluna Daines started her own business with making modeling poses. So for sure I made my way over to the Morphine Mainstore to take a look on her poses. I really have to say she does an awesome job with her poses. I IMed her to tell her that and she immediately sent me one of her sets. I was very happy and honored and for sure I have to show you this awesome poses…

Morphine poses can be used for runway and as well for photography. The smooth transitions let you shine on the runway and make a wonderful performance. What I like most is that the poses are a bit out of the box and not the same ones that you can find again and again. Hadaluna seems daring enough to try something new and I would say with success πŸ™‚ I am sure that this pose set is not the last (ok it was not the first as well) that I got from Morphine. If you wanna try by yourself make your way to the Morphine Mainstore πŸ™‚

Awesome new Lashes at Finesmith paired with Fluke poses ;)

One of the latest awesome releases at Finesmith were 4 new amazing lashes styles!!! We all know the black cool lashes yula Finsmith did for the “Noir” collection. Now she followed that great way of designing lashes with 4 more styles.

This incredible new Finesmith lashes are really a must have for everybody that likes an extravagant styling. Totally in black they always have a wonderful diamond part where they start from.

To make this awesome styling complete I added one of my long time favourites of Finesmith – the “Victorian Secret” set. This awesome set was one of the first sets that took my attention to yula Finesmith’s creations, as it was the first set where the jewelry was just ‘pinned’ on the body, like the necklace that goes right into the chest ;). The whole set is menu driven and you can change metals, colors and gems to make it match anyways what you wanna wear it to.

The awesome lace part, that goes up from the neck over the lips is one part of the “Lucia” lingerie from Glam Affair and as well a piece that I really like for a long time as well πŸ™‚ So what could fit better to this styling then the “Diva Poses” made by GM Nikolaidis, owner and designer of Fluke. I really love the poses as they are somewhat fresh and modern and dare to be different and out of the box, for me the “Diva Poses” have a wonderful dramatic touch as well πŸ™‚

Poses by Fluke!!!

Finally I was able to shoot some of the amazing Fluke poses πŸ™‚ GM Nikolaidis opened a while ago a wonderful new pose store and I was there again and again to buy poses. But as you all know.. if you buy poses you are tempted to try them all before you buy. Always as I was at Fluke, something happened and I had to leave or was pulled into a conversation… As I was talking to Barbara Nicholls lately, during my LeeZu store shift, we again came on the poses of her partner and not a second later after I told her that I always got disturbed buying his poses, he was in my IM and another second later I was drowned in amazing great poses πŸ˜‰ So I will post you like a TV soap again and again this amazing poses till I showed them all, because they are really cool for modeling and photography! As you not really can describe poses i just shot them set by set so that you can take a look by yourself :p

My first 2 sets are the “Casual Girl Poses” that you can see above and the “Fashionista Poses” that will follow below ;). They all have awesome transitions, so that you move smoothly from one to another.

If you are curious about more you can visit the Fluke Mainstore or even wait for my next post πŸ˜‰

Incredible Autumn News by Tres Beau!!!

Yesterday I had the great honor to judge at the Styling Forward contest with Frolic Mills and Kimmera Madison. It was great fun and we saw someΒ  cool Halloween stylings. After the show, Kimmera, Edi and me, talked a while and had fun in some pose stores. During that time Kimmera gave me 2 of her new designs. Not long after I excused myself and went into my dark corner to look at the outfits… WOW!!! Both are incredible great and so perfect for the actual season! I was sitting over my inventory to find a few things to style this wonderful outfits quite a while, but then it looked like I wanted it to be :p …

The first you can see in the pic above is called “Flight”. The huge feather collar inspired me to use the great face tattoo from Miamai that reminded me of some feathers of dark birds as well. That brought me on those 2 crows and the dead tree in the back ;). The lipstick was made by Oceane and the earrings are one of my longtime favourite, the “Vivienne” earrings made by yula Finesmith. The boots and the hat are as well part of that amazing “Flight” outfit of Tres Beau!!!

The second outfit for today as well from Tres Beau will be the “Meryl” dress in red…

On this dress you again can see Kimmera’s skills and possibilities if it comes to designing. The beautiful corsage has a handpainted texture as usual for Tres Beau clothing. That for me it makes it very special, as you really can see nearly every brush line, that is needed to make such a wonderful and unique texture! I only can imagine how long it takes to draw and paint such a filigree texture. What I always adored on Kimmera’s work is that the textures seem to move with the avatar… the texture hardly gets stretched weird or destroyed while my pixels move. The awesome sheer skirt as well is a pice of art if you see how it moves with the avatar. TheΒ  right flexibility and moving time to let it look really real. The 2 big ornaments at the left hip and the head make amazing eyecatchers and give an extra touch of elegnance to the whole outfit. If you visit the Tres Beau Mainstore you will find a lot more of the amazing creations of Kimmera Madison and I am sure you will as well find one for you πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 09/28/2011

Yesterday before my LeeZu shift I was thinking about what I could wear. I went to my LeeZu part of my wardrobe and after 2 hours… yes the LeeZu part is not small *grins… I came across a really beautiful gown that I was not wearing for quite sometime. I pulled it our of the wardrobe and put it on. “A Mon Insu” is a very elegant and still playful gown with all the cute ruffles and roses. And as I anyways was in an elegant mood from my last post, I really enjoyed styling this wonderful gown ;). For the jewelry I chose the earrings and necklace of the “Giz” set from Finesmith Designs. The skin is one of the new Glam Affair skins called “Gio”. For the hair I searched some to repeat the ruffle and rose theme of the gown and my choice fell on the “Cileste” hair, made by Bliss Couture. Even if you cannot see the shoes on the pic, I have to tell, that it was the “ChiChi” pumps in black from Maitreya as I loved them so much with their sweet crossed lines ;). Last look in the mirror to check… perfect! Lets go to LeeZu and work my shift as usual at Wednesday 11AM SLT πŸ˜‰

The second dress as well was shown the first time at the BoSL Fashion Week 2011. “Life is a Chess” this incredible outfit is named and as you can see Aleida played with a lot of chessmen on this outfit. The basic colors black and white make a perfect illusion of a living chess board with all the chess pieces on it. The huge headpart carries them as well as the wonderful back train of the dress itself.

The mixture of the opaque chessmen and the floating lace make a perfect combination. The dress is made of a basic black fabric that open on the belly for a little chessboard πŸ˜‰ Really a piece of Art!

The last outfit for today is the “Falling Apart Gown”. AlsoΒ  the first time on the runway at the BoSL Fashion Week 2011. A total eyecatcher is the huge bow head piece and the beautiful sculpted skirt with all this little domino parts at the back.

All 3 designs are made very detailed and you can imagine how much time and effort were put in that dresses. Aleida is back with a big boom and awesome new designs. Watch out for her new Fall/Winter Collection 2011. This 3 dresses are only a little taste of what will come πŸ™‚

A laced gown with a big ‘veil’ made of straps from head to toe… a wonderful headpiece and a part that I would call face peace that comes down from the forehead over the eyes.

PNP Pose Show – Review

Last Sunday the OGlam Agency presented the first show for PNP Poses made by Β Spishak Sorbet. Β Spishak Sorbet made a lot of new runway poses that were show cased by the OGlam models. It was an honor as well as a pleasure for me, that I was allowed to be part of that amazing show. The show was sponsored by Apple May, Azoury, Sascha’s Design, Champagne, Priviledge, !Silken Moon and Finesmith Designs. To give a short impression of that amazing show I would like to show you the outfits and poses I was allowed to showcase on the Runway.

My first outfit came from Apple May and was called “Cheery”. For skins we were sent to !Silken Moon and for “Cheery” I decided to wear the “Blog Frog” skin of the Rebel II series. The green eyeshadow and lips were the perfect addition to the color- and playful outfit. The jewelry for sure comes from Finesmith – and yes it is no secret that I adore yula’s creations as well as her genius designing skills and ideas πŸ˜‰ – for this outfit I chose parts of the new “Rusalka Inspiration” set that matched the colors of the outfit and skin perfectly! For shoes we were allowed to pick from the great Mary Jane Shoes, made by Infiniti Mirihi. For this outfit the new “Cheeky” pumps in red where the perfect addition.

For this outfit I picked poses from PNP of the “PNP Runway – Mode” series.

The poses I used for the show were the “PNP Runway – Model 6, 28, 30, 42, 50

The second outfit I was wearing walking down the runway was made by Azoury and carries the name “Tenue Tooti”. The skin as well is from the Rebel II line of !Silken Moon and is called “L8ter G8ter” The jewelry as well for sure is made by Finesmith Designs and it is a mix of the “Vivienne Inspiration” set (earrings & headpiece), the “Ash” collar and let me add the fingernails as they are from Finesmith Designs as well, the “Finesmith Nails Painter v.1”

This dress was a real challenge to pose with the big sculpted prim that makes the skirt. But a few of the “PNP Runway – Dress” poses wer able to take the challenge and win πŸ˜‰

For this outfit I used the “PNP Runway – Dress” poses 11, 44, 51, 56 and 63.

From Sascha’s Design I got the wonderful black “Zephra” gown. Again I used a skin of the Rebel II line of !Silken Moon , this time the “Mio Vio” skin. The jewelry is the “Idioma” set from Finesmith Designs and the shoes again I got from Mary Jane Shoes and they are called “Attitude Stilettos”

For the SAS Dress I chose poses as well from the “PNP Runway – Dress” series and it was the 2, 4, 9, 15, 24 and 46 that you can see in the pics above πŸ˜‰

My 4th outfit was made by Champagne with a signature face tattoo from Garded Secret, that was made especially for this outfit called “Samba”. The skin is the same as I used for my first outfit and the shoes again came from Mary Jane Shoes, this time the “Strapped Stiletto” in cyan. The earrings are part of the “Valeria Inspiration” set, what is a limited set from Finesmith Designs.

For the “Samba” outfit I mixed poses of the “PNP Runway Haute” set and the “PNP Runway Dress” poses. From the “Haute” set I used the 2, 7, 10, 19 and the number 55 of the “Dress” series.

My last outfit for the PNP Pose Show was from Priviliged and it is called “Isadora Exclusive”. The skin is the last of the 4 Rebel II skins and named “Funny Bunny”, the jewelry set is the “January Colletion” from Finesmith Designs, the shoes are again a pair of the great Mary Jane Shoes – the “Satin Pumps” in white.

This time I again used poses from the “PNP Runway Dress” line to showcase the wonderful gown. I chose the numbers 8, 18, 20, 23, 26 and 27.

I hope you enjoyed my short review of this wonderful show and you take the effort and make your way to the PNP Mainstore and try all those wonderful and new poses πŸ™‚
