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 πŸ˜‰ .

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 πŸ˜‰ . 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 πŸ˜‰ .

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 πŸ˜‰ . 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 πŸ™‚ .

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 πŸ˜‰ .

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 πŸ˜‰ .

News by Mea Culpa and Wicca’s Wardrobe!

Mea Culpa Afrika Dings 001

Mea Culpa has moved! Back with a new look on a new location. At the new Mainshop you will find a lot of news and as well a special outlet place where you are able to purchase a few of the older creations and as well some single parts for mix and match stylings. If you wanna take a look – here is a taxi directly to the new Mea Culpa Mainstore: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Himmafushi%20Island/127/141/23

I am happy to showcase one of the latest releases from Mea Culpa – “Karasu Hebi”.

Mea Culpa Afrika Dings 002a

The “Karasu Hebi” outfit is an amazing surreal outfit with incredible textures and amazing huge and fashionable prims. The look kinda a snake that wraps up round your body and the laced textured full bodysuit with the golden ornaments really gives the whole outfit a very seductive and sexy touch. The headpiece as well is part of the outfit and completes the whole outfit to an amazing art piece.

I was very happy that I was allowed to wear this amazing outfit for the Autumn Symphony show from Solo Evane. It was a very exciting and special show to me, as I was allowed to sponsor the show with my own poses from Wicca’s Wardrobe, my new label. I made all the poses for the showcased Mea Culpa outfits, as well for the “Karasu Hebi”.

WM - Poses Constricted Set

I made the new “Constricted” set so that it goes well with all the prims and textures. Sometimes it is not easy to pose outfits with such huge prims without getting in trouble or always have your arms spread or high up in the air. I wanted some dramatic and still not too spread out poses for the outfit since it has an avantgarde attitude for me. The “Constricted” pose set does not only work for the “Karasu Hebi” outfit, you can try those poses with many other outfits, that are prim heavy just try them in my new store πŸ˜‰ If you wanna see… just take the limo πŸ˜‰ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/32/64/22

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Between LeeZu shifts with Malicia ;)

LeeZu Mal & Wicca 001

Thank goodness for flat shoes! Standing in a shop for hours makes you notice each single bone in your feet. Usually Mal and I relax pitying our poor feet after a shift at your fave Cafe. Mal has tea, I usually go for coffee. Today though we both showed off the wonderful Yukatan Pants, a new release by Leezu ….. and with the flat shoes we even had some energy left to snap some piccies for you.

To know more about Malicia’s styling you can take a look at her bloghttp://silkenmoon.wordpress.com/2013/09/23/a-sip-of-tea-after-work-flat-heel-heaven/

The “Yukatan” pants are one of the latest releases from LeeZu and again she didΒ  what I loved so much on some of the other designs of LeeZu. She combined pants and shoes. With mesh you always get trouble if you wanna add shoes. Sometimes the shoes get stuck in the pants or even they peek out of the pants sleeves. So what better solution you can have, than have the best matching shoes already together with the pants?. For the “Yukatan” pants LeeZu decided to add some flat, casual, urban looking boots. The details on them, like the buckles, straps and lines again show the skills and the dedication of LeeZu, that she puts in her designs.Β  Besides the new “Yukatan” pants I decided to go with one of my favourite jackets from LeeZu, the “Tasia” jacket.

The hair is one of the latest releases of EMO-tions. The “Brooklyn” hair is a short, casual and still smart-looking every day style. I am a short hair addicted anyways and the “Brooklyn” hair will be one of my favourites with the neat wisps that you have on top of a very modern and fresh looking hair style.

The cool belly tattoo is the new group gift from Silken Moon so you better run there and get it before it is gone πŸ˜‰

The amazing furniture and house that i used for the pictures comes from 22769. For the food fair they made wonderful bistro with all parts you need to get the perfect illusion of a sweet little bistro where you can take breaks from work and let your soul fly and chat with friends πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe at the Couturier’s Docks!

WM - Elegant Evening Set

Today’s post is very special for me πŸ™‚ . 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 πŸ˜‰ . 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 πŸ™‚ . 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 πŸ˜‰ .

Wicca’s Wardrobe: 08/27/2013 – Today at LeeZu

Wicca's Wardrobe - LeeZu 001

Usually I am more into black and dark colors, but today I had a little bit of a pastel mood*grins*.

I started with the “Lana Top” in baby blue. The special satin set always comes in a basic color and a white neck part. I added the “XXX Tie”. The white version of it is modify, so I was able to change it a little bit, to give it the light pink color.

Wicca's Wardrobe - LeeZu 003

The “Victoria” pants are one of the lasted releases from LeeZu. I loved the idea of a lightly vintage looking basic paired with modern furniture and some modern accessories. The “Lana Top” ends right under the chest, I wanted to cover my belly a little more, since in Germany the weather really became rainy and cold, as I am sitting here freezing lightly I though a light autumn look would be the right choice πŸ˜‰ . To bring the light pink of the top and the beanie back, I added the “Cat Tights”, as well from LeeZu. The cool “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” are one of my all time favourites. I love how the perfectly fit to my legs and with the mesh technique, you have no more weird angles round your knees when the bend.

Wicca's Wardrobe - LeeZu 004

The amazing bag comes from 22679. The made those for the L’accessorie event in various colors and I chose the white/white version for this post. The amazing lightning and shadows really give this bag a very realistic look. With the amazing details of the buckle and the overlays it really is an awesome addition to my bag collection πŸ˜‰

Wicca's Wardrobe - LeeZu 002

The fantastic furniture as well comes from 22679. The “The Challenge” set can be bought as a whole ensemble, or you can just pick out the single parts you like. The bed is available in a PG and in a mature version. The wonderful coffee table can be used with or without the decoration and as well you have the magazines and books single to decorate with them what ever you like πŸ˜‰ . The lamps can be turned on and of by touching them. The single seat, which I am sitting on has different poses for laying and sitting on it and as well some couple poses. The “The Challenge” set is the perfect choice for those, who like a modern, black & white ambience.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 003

Sometimes you just do not know where to go or what to do, you feel torn inside and you only see darkness. Sometimes your inner only feels like a big fight and you have no clue how to escape.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 002

Sometimes it it hard to find words to describe what you wanna say. And I tried to find words for this post and they just did not wanna flow. A close friend of mine, who is way better with words and who knows me very well wrote something for me after i showed her the pics and gave her a lot of single words and emotions and I would like to share it as it really expresses, what I only could say with pictures. Thank you Mal for finding the right words for me, for knowing me and understanding me even without any words sometimes.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Dark Indulgence

Wicca's Wardrobe - Dark Indulgence Half

The newest addition to my store Wicca’s Wardrobe, would be a very special gown set – the “Dark Indulgence” set. Sometimes you want to showcase a wonderful gown, but not in the usual, general just beauty looking way. Sometimes it needs to have a little special attitude, that goes a little bit in a more cool and dark direction ;). For this purpose I created the “Dark Indulgence” set.

WW - Poses - Dark Indulgence Set

Inspired by a gothic splendor or even lightly avant garde look, I wanted to have elegant poses that have a bit more of dramatic expression πŸ˜‰

Wicca's Wardrobe - Dark Indulgence Full

For the look I chose one of my long time favourites of Miamai, the “Mourning” gown. The black gown comes with the wonderful head part and the collar. I just added the back fan from [glow] and the super amazing gloves that are compatible with my Slink hands.

To the simple textured gown I wanted to add some heavy makeup so I decided to wear the “Maudite 10” mask of the “Les Makeups” line of Miamai.

If you did not yet see my other poses and like the “Dark Indulgence” set just take a look at my sweet little Mainstore πŸ˜‰ (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/240/183/22)

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Crazy Casual on a stormy Afternoon

Crazy Casual with Mow-Leezu full

The opening of my shop Wicca’s Wardrobe last night and the huge response of friends, customers and students, did really push me to make another set for my new store. Yes I am like a little girl on Christmas, because I never had a store or a brand before πŸ˜‰ This new “Crazy Casual Set” is kinda some poses I always wanted to have an never found them.

WW - Poses - Crazy Casual Set

Even everyday moments can be very special. Most of them are poses, that happen during the day , when you are walking around and you do not even realize them. What I realized while I made the poses, it looks very funny when you try to make static poses that are part of a movement you do not even notice when you do it πŸ˜‰ If you look out on the grid there are hardly any poses, that look like real snapshots, where you just catch a moment. For that special moments, a realistic and casual picture, the “Crazy Casual Set” is made πŸ™‚

For today’s styling I used a combination of LeeZu and M.o.w. The super cool “Suspender Jeans” in that tartan fabric looking texture with the loose suspenders really caught my heart. First I wanted to make an urban casual with it, but then I thought you even can make something chic out of it and tried the “Tasia” jacket from LeeZu. The jacket for me was something new and very special for me. The first time when I put it on, I thought I did have rezzing problems. Then I jumped… NO! it was supposed like this!!! I never saw a mesh jacked with a half open arm. The upper side of your arm is nude and the bottom part is covered and even carries some little decorations… just amazing.

For the location, I thought I can use the deviousMind sim, that I was talking about in one of my last posts. The whole sim has so many amazing secret spots and the buildings and arrangements have such a good quality it is really a fun to snap pictures there. Besides you can go window shopping as well, but that’s a totally other story :p

Of you like the “Crazy Casual Set” I am happy if you stop by at my new Mainstore and take a look at all of my new poses πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe: I have my first own store!

AD Creations+R2 full

Today is a very special day for me. I got my first Mainstore for Wicca’s Wardrobe. I recently started to make poses for my blog and I got asked again and again why I would not sell them.

I thought about and after being scared for quite some time, I started to sort my poses and tried to make a few mini sets. Each of my regular pose sets will have 5 poses, which you can buy single or even as a fatpack with a discount on it πŸ˜‰ .

I thought about what kind of poses I would like to make. There is already a lot of amazing runway pose makers out on the grid and a few are very close friends of mine. I am not a very competitive person and so I decided to make special sets for a special purpose. For example when I needed some cool casual jeans poses and could not find what I had in mind I just made me some and called the set “Casual Jeans”, or when I wanted to make a post with a handbag, a more cool that elegant one I found non that matched and so the “Cool Handbag” set was born. Another time I had to pose a wonderful Azul gown with super huge flower parts and so the “Huge Flowers” set came to life.

My poses will always have a purpose for each set and maybe that’s why they will carry funny names sometimes ;).

For the opening of my very first store I wanted to make another set. I was styling the amazing “Cross Halter Dress” from R2, that I found at the Collabor88 combines with the huge “MTL” hat from [AD] Creations. This super huge hat again brought exactly the ‘find the right pose problem’ and I thought I maybe can make a new set for opening my first Mainstore with a “Big Hat Fun” set πŸ˜‰

WM - Big Hat Fun Set

I wanted to have some not just nice and sweet lo9oking poses for that huge hat since the mesh dress is kinda special πŸ˜‰

If you wanna take a look at my first steps of making poses for a special purpose, I would be very happy if you take a look at my brand new Mainstore πŸ™‚

For my new brand Wicca’s Wardrobe,Β  I wanted to make a new clear logo. I wanted to cut back on one letter only, but I wanted to keep the snake that was with me for such a long time now. Snake is my asian zodiac as well so it has a special meaning to me πŸ˜‰
