Wicca’s Wardrobe: Burlesque

Today I would like to tell  little story again that this pictures, made by Daron Brandeis, have attached. The first picture, was the entry for the BOSL covercontest and was choosen into the Top 5 on Frolic Mills flickr stream. Sadly it did not make the cover but never the less it really was fun 🙂

I already blogged more then once the great new corset brand NV Corsetry. Their corsets are really amazing and I felt really honored as I was chosen to be part of the BOSL fashion spread of NV Corsetry. I already blogged many different styles with the corsets of NV Corsetry and for sure the burlesque theme was kinda bullseye for a styling with those corsets. In the burlesque aera, corsets were very popular and you could not think any styling without them nearly. I would like to showcase the stylings I made for the BOSL fashion spread, as I really had fun doing them and it shows another possibility for wearing the amazing corsets from NV Corsetry.

For the first look I got the “Ordained” corset and the short body from NV Corsetry and for the rest of the look I had my freedom to choose what I wanted, according to the challenge to create a burlesque outfit. I roamed through google and saw different pictures of amazing burlesque stylings, but one got stuck in my mind. It was a relativly modern picture but the girl had combined fishnet tights with cool boots and a litte hat. I remembered the “Rosenkavalier” hat from Rozoregalia and it matched perfect to what I wanted to go for. Fishnet tights I found on marketplace and for sure feathers and the long cigarette holder could not be missing. Them I found at !dM deviousBeauty out of their ‘Fetish Cabaret’ collection. I like the little details so I added one of those velvet chokers I saw on so many pics with the little rose in the front and the gloves of the Betty outfit from Angel Dessous. The awesome “Burlesque” boots, made by [GOS] made the perfect finish for Look No. 1 🙂

Look No. 2 was not that easy as the “Wrath” outfit from NV Corsetry comes with a long black latex suit. Latex was not that popular and known in the times of the burlesque aera. So I had to think harder for this look to make it work. First I slipped into my red BAX ankle boots. as red and black was used often for burlesque in the past. Then I made my way back to !dm deviousBeauty and took another look on their ‘Fetish Cabaret’ line. I found one outfit that had interesting huge red feathers for the hips, waist and head and as well a red feather boa that came with matching poses to wear it. The black “Wisper” boa I took from Miamai out of the ‘inMutatio’ collection. The 2 huge black fans were provided by Maya Paris.

I hope you liked my little trip into the burlesque aera 🙂

I would like to thank Sazzy Nirpaw for building the amazing burlesque set and modeling in pic 1 and Daron Brandeis for his great idea and the amazing pictures and as well modeling in pic 1 :p

The Undefeated Creature

We all heard the stories about Yeti´s, unicorn, chupacabra or even Nessie. Many people claimed to have seen them, but nobody actually caught them. Rumors and stories about this fantasy beings have been told since generations.

But now in the year 2012 something strange is going on deep in the spooky forest.deep down in Ireland. People found foot prints, first they though it might be a hoofed animal but now it changed all. People claimed to have seen a mysterious wild creature, yet female looking , she got a dark skin, horns, wild hair and hooves. This creature must have been hiding good because nobody ever was able to catch her, rumours are spread that the one that tames this beast will have all the wishes fulfilled that he or she might have.

Many people failed at trying to find her, a lot of people even didn´t return from their adventure. But one day a brave young man decided to try his luck to find this being, he got laughed at and people took bets on him – whether he would come back and no.

One day this mysterious creature roamed around the forest to try to find something to eat, after all she was really gentle and friends with the nature, she wouldn´t harm animals or humans. Her food was nuts and plants. She was a peaceful being, and over the time she got sad, because people tried to chase her and the family and now she was the onliest one left from her species.

The friendly beast took a small break at a small lake, she didn´t feel any danger so she wasn´t aware that a man was sitting in the bush right next to her, she hummed a little song and thought about her joyful peaceful life in the forest when suddenly a man jumped out of the darkness with a drawn sword.

She stopped breathing for a moment and thought she would end up like all of her other ancestors before her. After she got some clear thoughts she jumped off and tried defending herself but couldn´t find a way to fight back. She started running, and she ran and ran. Her heart was beating heavily, she just wanted to carry on her species, even though she would be the last one alive.

The man was still chasing her, she looked back and saw him following her with the big sword in his hands. She ran faster, but then, she stumbled over a tree root and fell. Her ankle started hurting and she couldn´t find a way to stand up again. With the last power she got back on her feet, but the male was too close now and as she turned, she ran directly in the big sword he had in his hands right behind her. A huge pain run through her body and silver tears were running down her cheeks as the man stopped in front of her to finish his prey.

She felt her power vanish and broke down to the ground, feeling the smooth and damp grass of the morning underneath her. Her last view was the male, standing above her his hands raised, lucky about his victory. In the moment of her death he would loudly call his wishes out in the forest, like the rumors said and like it always had been when one of her species was murdered.

She closed her eyes, a last silver tear ran down her cheeks, her breathing went quieter and quieter until she finally died on the forrest ground, kissed by a few last sunbeams that guided her over to where all her ancestors waited for her.

Valentine with Baboom – An amazing group gift!!!

Today I met Kyra Camel, owner and designer of Baboom. After a short time we discovered that we both are germans and we had to laugh about as the conversation started in english and it was to notice that none of us had english as her native language 🙂 We were talking a while and she gave me a few outfits to blog. I was amazed as she told me that she – like me – never learned Photoshop, she taught her all by herself what she needed. And I took a closer look at her textures and really was amazed. While I was trying her outfits and we were talking she suddenly dressed in a wonderful red gown telling me that this would be her group gift. I looked at her closer and asked her if she was kidding… but she said “No, the whole gown is my gift for all my group members”… and I immediately asked her for the gift to blog it. Valentine is close and the “Valentine Rose” gown from Baboom might one of the outfits for you to consider 🙂 The outfit has several possibilities to wear it. You can wear the full gown version, or even a sweet mini version if you just take the big skirt off. As well you can just wear it like a sexy minidress if you take all the attachments off and just wear the little skirt prim. So do not think too long, make your way to the Baboom Mainstore and join the inworld group to get your free “Valentine Rose” gown!!!

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Trouble

Today, while I was driving home from RL work, they played an older song from P!NK at the radio – “Trouble”. I did not hear that song in ages and as I arrived at home I had to listen a few more times to it. During that I logged into SL and started my SL day as usually with making some styles for the blog, I saw that little note beside my keyboard that reminded me of styling a casual corset outfit, like I promised in my last corset post.

Still the song “Trouble” from P!NK was running on my itunes and I could not resist… so the casual styling still have to be done somewhen, as this one turned out very punky :p

But even that is possible with the corsets of NV Corsetry 😉 Again I am very glad that I can show, that corsets have such a wide style range 🙂 Even the music industry in RL discovered that again and again. Singers like Lady Gaga, Pink, Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) and many others include corsets in their stage outfits. They simply add a sexy and elegant touch to everything what you wear and do not disturb any styling 🙂

For the shoes the choice fell on one of the newest Redgrave boots called “Bonnie Boots”. This boots really rock. You will get 2 versions in one pack, one with golden and one with solver hardware and sole. The combination of leather and cotton really makes this super-higheeled plateau boots perfect for every occasion.

To make the look perfect I added one of my favourite LeeZu jeans and a casual shirt as well from LeeZu.

But now it is time to switch the music and say bye bye to P!NK for now :p
