Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 03/30/2013 First, Shooting with Dahriel, then Shift at LeeZu ;)

8606862624_df6f823148_b

A few days ago Dahriel messaged me if I could put a spring look together real quick, for the vendor of a new set of his poses. The “Giz” poses are a very special pose pack, becasue the poses are very expressive. I told him I would do a style real quick and he warned me and told me: “Let me send you the poses before so you can check that they match the styling. The poses are not that usual.”

Ok that was a challenge and I love challenges ๐Ÿ˜‰

It took me a few minutes, but then I was sure what I wantd to wear and I am happy he liked the styling as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Second Pose Set together with News from Bubble’s Design!

Bubbles + Wicca Posen 001

Today I would like to show you one of the latest releases of Bubble’s Designs paired with my newest pose creations, the “Cool Handbag Set” by Wicca’s Wardrobe. As I put on the “Jackeline” outfit from Bubble’s Design I suddenly had the imagination of a 80’s styling :p

The sheer bodysuit with the amazing belt and shoulder collar that makes this wonderful, sexy and deep neckline in the back , immediately reminded of some of the early madonna stylings. Usually I am not a friend of pink but the 80s sometimes just scream about pink and so I added some pink with the lips, nails and the “Paris Pink Fashion Handbag” from MALT.

Then I looked for some cool trendy handbag poses… I went through all my inventory and I found quite some but all looked kinda elegant and sweet and I wanted some cool ones. So what now… make some!

WM - Poses Cool Handbag

I went back to my secret laboratory and started to make some poses that would go with the look I just created. I did some research on RL magazines and found a picture that caught my attention and I wanted to redo this in SL.

There was a girl that grabbed a fence with one hand and was kinda hanging from it, both feet at the ground and she was holding a bag! (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-EEdePH-c1hw/T7AHK7Ir9sI/AAAAAAAAAKA/fPoyGbpdUp8/s1600/V%2Bpose%2B2-001.jpg)

That was as well the inspiration for the first picture of this post, that you can see above ;).

So if you wanna grab them.. I put them for sale a few seconds ago ๐Ÿ˜‰ (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Napf/61/35/40)

Crazy Connection: The question that matters

CC AD 1

The question that matters.

Sirena was a young woman leading a carefree life. She had a good job, no worries and the men courted her, though she did not really care for them. All in all, she did not really care for anyone but herself, using the same excuses we all tend to use. โ€œThat is none if my business.โ€ โ€œWhat can I do about it?โ€ or โ€œI donโ€™t want to interfere.โ€

She lived close to the graveyard and when the weather was fine, she took a shortcut there from the bus home. One evening, she saw a woman on a bench, crying bitter tears. The woman looked at her, but Serena quickly looked away. When she was about to leave the graveyard an old witch โ€“ by the looks of her โ€“ stepped into Serenaโ€™s way and asked straight away โ€œWhy didnโ€™t you ask the woman why she cried?โ€ Serena was a little scared and mumbled, I thought she was mourning, this is a graveyard after all. What can I do about her grief?โ€

The old witch looked at her sadly and shook her head. โ€œDear girl, you need a lesson in compassion. I hex you not to be able to leave the graveyard until someone shows you the sympathy you denied that woman.โ€

CC AD 3

Serena did not know if to laugh or to be scared, the old woman had disappeared as sudden as she showed up. Serena headed for the exit but ran into an invisible wall. She tried to get out at another spot, but to no avail.

Whenever she tried to talk to someone, they ignored her. After a while the place took its tribute, her eyes burnt out from crying over her own sad fate, her nails grew into claws, in short, she became a fearful sight. People started to run away from her thinking her a demon of some sort.

One day, when she was sitting numbly on a gravestone mulling over her fate and feeling the pain of being ignored, she finally learned her lesson. For the first time, she did not cry out of self-pity, but for shame and pity for all the people she had ignored all her life.

Suddenly she heard a warm male voice behind her. โ€œExcuse me, can I do anything for you?โ€ She felt the curse break and when she turned round she saw a man, just like herself smiling at her. โ€œI think you can go home now.โ€ He said.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: The Steampunk Crow

WiccaMerlin_Fashion01_HauteMagazine_November2012_06

“People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the land of the dead, but sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back and put the wrong things right .”

(Sahra – The Crow 1994)

I know that crows are usually black, but as iIwas styling, I wanted to do someting in a brown/nude tone for the HAUTE Magazine (http://hautesl.com/latest-issue/)

The quote out of the movie “The Crow” still was in my mind all the time when I was styling.ย  I like dark fantasy novels and movies and so many of my stylings have some of those in the back, even if I do not always name them or tell about it.

For this styling I started with the “XXX” dress from LWL. I had it for a longer time but never something came to my mind what I could do with it. With the theme of the minimal colors for the HAUTE Magazine the brown tone matched amazing and I paired the crow theme with some steampunk elements like the boots from Grim Bros and the helmet from Diram. The amazing wings were a gift from Reclaw Inshan, former designer of R.A.D. Together with the leggings from LeeZu and the jewelry from Chop Zuey, the fantasy idea came to live. LovelyMiwako7399 Menna too this amazing picture ๐Ÿ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Cancion De La Muerte

ย Devils Violin 001a

Cancion de la muerte

Nathaniel had just finished school and wanted to make a trip through Europe before he started university. When he was in Spain, he had dinner in a little bar when he packed for the night, the landlord warned him not to go to the nearby ruins after sunset.

As every young man, Nathaniel did not care for advise and thought the locals superstitious. His curiosity tickled, he thought he might just see them before going to the hostel. As he got there, he started to feel a bit uneasy. Then he heard the sweetest music.
He followed the tune and saw a little girl playing. First she ignored him, playing with her eyes shut, then she looked at him, turned round and went into the direction of the ruins.

He hesitated, but decided to follow the girl. When he entered the ruins he thought he heard moans and muffled screams, but he told himself silly. โ€œWhen the little girl is not afraid, I should not be either,โ€ he told himself. He looked at the girl again and suddenly he realized what was so weird about her, she was slightly translucent. His heart started racing and he was about to let pride be pride and run, when the girl spoke. โ€œHelp us! We cannot live or die because of the music.โ€

He looked round and saw a few ghosts lingering around, they all seemed unnaturally aged. They all looked at him pleadingly, Mustering all his courage, he asked how he could help. The girl said โ€œStop the music. Come!โ€ She led him into a room in the ruins. There was a fire burning in the fireplace and someone was sitting on a chair. The little girl stopped playing but the music went on. She pointed at the person in the chair.

He slowly went round the chair and gasped in horror, there was a mummified old woman looking at the notes before her playing the violin. She had the same eyes as the girl and he knew her ghost led him to her body โ€“ or what was left of it. She played on and on. โ€œBurn the notes,โ€ said the little girl.ย He went around the chair, took the notes “Pierre’s Requiem” from the stand and threw them into the fire. Then all went very fast, the fire blazed up in a roar, the ghost of the girl was drawn into her corpse. Then there was a flash of light and the sound of thunder. Then, the music started again.

He saw the person in the chair had turned into a beautiful young woman, smiling at him while playing a different tune. He saw there were new notes on the stand and went to throw them into the fire, too. When he stretched out his hand he saw it was aging fast until he saw his own body crumbling into dust. The song was called “Nathaniel’s Requiem”. The last thing he heard was the womanโ€™s chuckle playing his song.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Sometimes you just wanna be with the cool kids ;)

WiccaMerlin_Closeup_HauteMagazine_November2012_04

Sometimes you feel casual but still wanna play with the cool kids ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is no secret that my favourite color is black and so I wanted to try a black and cool casual look. The look originally was created for the latest HAUTE Magazine of Leah Mc Cullough (http://hautesl.com/latest-issue/) but I loved the look and the picture so much that I decided to put in on the blog as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ At this point thank you so much LovelyMiwako7399 Menna for such an awesome picture ๐Ÿ˜‰

As I made the styling it still was very cold outside, but since the winter seems coming back in germany… it again matches the weather perfectly.

The pants and the jacket come from DeLa as well as the neck- and arm warmers. For the pullover I decided to wear one of my long time favourites from LeeZu.

The glasses I found at Steinwerk and for the hair I used one of the older styles of LeLutka. What I really like are the mesh ears with the tubes that you can get at Mandala and I use them a lot lately for the casual and grungy stylings ๐Ÿ˜‰ It really is fun if you try to make a casual simple styling and then you find this accessory in your inventory and that glasses and then maybe a bag… and all of a sudden you are far away from any minimal idea :p.

And now I will go out and see if I can find some cool kids to play with ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Spring Look for HAUTE Magazine

WiccaMerlin_Fashion01_HauteMagazine_November2012_02

Yesterday the latest issue of the HAUTE Magazine was launched on the new website (hautesl.com).

Leah McCullough, owner of the amazing HAUTE Magazine, released the second issue of her great magazine and I was asked to make a few stylings, wich were showcased as “WWW” – Wicca’s Weird Wardrobe. Leah gave me the challenge to stay in a black/grey/white or brown/nude color rage and I really had fun doing this looks ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had the great pleasure to work with LovelyMiwako7399 Menna for the whole column and she did amazing pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

For the first look I wanted to go with a fashion chic spring look. For the basic I decided to go with pants from LeLutka and a top from LeeZu. Then the idea of the hat and the bag came to my mind. It looked like a nice casual look and I wanted to pimp it a little bit and added a part of a Mea Culpa gown, glasses from Izzie’s and some gloves.

To see all of them at once you can visite the website and read the whole magazine online at http://hautesl.com/latest-issue/.

A special thanks goes to Leah McCullough and LovelyMiwako7399 Menna for the great oppostunity and the wonderful pictures!

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 03/24/2013 – My First Pose Set!!!

Casual Jeans 002

Today I would like to talk about what I did the past days and weeks just for fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

The basic look for this post was from my Silken Moon shoots, that I did with Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon, for her new vendor pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

The skin is out of the new E-Clipse line of Silken Moon. The tone for this post is the ‘bisque’ and the type would be the ‘canvas’ skin. I really fell in love with the look that has no eyebrows at all. To see all the skin tones I will add the vendor picture mal made for the ‘canvas’ skin type.

canvas-vendor-final

The look is more a simple casual one, but especially this simple and clean casual look I liked a lot. The jacket and the jeans are from M.o.w., the wonderful necklace is a tattoo layer, that was made by Malicia Python. For the shoes, I went with one of the amazing designs of Diktator.

For the poses of my own pictures, I wanted to try again to make poses myself. Sometimes you style an outfit and you simply cannot find any poses that express that, what you feel in that very moment and so the best is you try on your own ๐Ÿ˜‰ I did not use any outworld program to make my poses I used on of the existing inworld ones, wich I try for quite some time now. Usually I only make one or two poses for my posts, but this time I thought about making a set of 5 to practise a bit more ๐Ÿ˜‰ So this will be my first official set called “Casual Jeans” ๐Ÿ˜‰

WM - Poses Casual Jeans with letters

Like I said before, for this post I only used 2 or them and you can buy them HERE (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Napf/61/35/40) But It feels kinda good to have created something on your own and that’s why I wanted to share.

E-Clipse+Solidea 001

Today I would like to showcase a few things, that I had for some time already, but never had the idea how to put them together and how to make a cool pic. Yesterday it worked all of a sudden and so I am very happy to share it today ๐Ÿ˜‰

The outfit comes from E-Clipse and is called “Black Carnival” it was originally made for the AVENUE Cinque event. The “Black Canival” caught my attention. I really loveย  the amazing flexible parts of the legs and the wrists. They make a great contrast to the solid upper body that is covered by an amazing texture together with the beautiful lace part it really becomes to a little piece of art. The huge belt underlines the artistic part even more ๐Ÿ™‚

The incredible headpiece comes from SoliDea FoliEs and it is called “Love is Blindness”. It has a huge buckle in the back, that holds it in place, while front has lots of amazing gems and an amazing little red heart.
