Pretty in Pink

TUNES

Caroline laughs and it’s raining all day
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place in the side of our lives
Where nothing is ever put straight
She turns her self round and she smiles and she says
“This is it that’s the end of the joke”
And loses herself in her dreaming and sleep
And her lovers walk through in their coaches

Pretty in pink, isn’t she?

“Space Cowboy”

TUNES

This is the return of the space cowboy
Interplanetary, good vibe zone
Say, at the speed of cheeba, you and I go deeper
Maybe I’m gonna have to get high just to get by
Now, you know I got that
I got that cheeba, cheeba kinda space cowboy vibe

[Jamiroquai]

The basic design for todays pictures was the amazing face tattoo from .:E.A.Studio:. called “TaTToo Corvus Make-Up”. It is one of the recent releases at their main store. I loved how the wings hugged the undereyeline. You get the choice between black and white and as well 2 different opacities for each – 40% and 60%. All of them are BoM layers and so they will work wit every head that supports BoM. For my LeLUTKA heads it works just perfectly. *winks*. The layers are modifiable, so you even could turn the white one into every color you like. The head I am using today, is the new boundless update for Erin.For the outfit I chose the amazing “Rocket Captain” from {PSYCHO:Byts}. I love the details on the body as well as on the hat. You get different colored for the body and the metals of the whole outfit. I really had fun decorating my set as soon as the idea of a military space mechanic came to my mind. The “Wreck Hideout” from 22769 was perfect for that scenery! First I thought about a motorbike for my mechanic, but then I found that amazing, futuristic space bike from STUN in my inventory, which even came with those cool poses!

You’re Forgiven not Forgotten…

TUNES

All alone, staring on
Watching her life go by
When her days are gray and her nights are black
Different shades of mundane

And the one favorite toy that lies upon the bed
Has often heard her cry
And heard her whisper out a name long forgiven
But not forgotten

A bleeding heart torn apart
Left on an icy grave
In the room where they once lay, face to face
Nothing could get in their way

But now the memories of the man are haunting her days
And the craving never fades
She’s still dreaming of a man long forgiven
But not forgotten

Still alone, staring on
Wishing her life goodbye
As she goes searching for the man long forgiven
But not forgotten

You’re forgiven not forgotten
You’re not forgotten
No, you’re not forgotten

Eastern Asian Adventure! – NEWS from LeLUTKA

And again I have a wonderful new release from LeLUTKA! This time, LeLUTKA gives more attention to their East Asian customers with the new “Ryn 2.0” Evolution head (for the males there is a pendant named “Kane”)

The head has a very young look and so I wanted to find something what would work with such a look and came across the Kawaii genre. It was against my ethnics to put her in lingerie or something too sexy as she has more of a teen or young women look to me with this kind of shape and skin. Certainly I had to use the amazing piercings again that come with the head 😉 Ryn certainly has all the amazing features of the 2.0 Evolution line as well!

It amazes me how LeLUTKa has the skills and passion, to make such different heads for all the ethnics around the world. We had the amazing wonderful African or African-American head with Nuri, we had all kind of European, American heads with Lake, Erin, Nova and now we get the Asian look as well with Ryn. You still can twist your shape and have even all the subcultures of the Asian ethnic with this head, I just wanted to blog it as pure as possible with my first post – I only made the nose a tiny wee bit smaller as it came. I am sure that won’t be my last post as I enjoyed my little journey into the Kawaii look and there is so many more genres you can do with that look 😉

So pop over to the LeLUTKA main store and try out the new – and maybe even all the other ones, too – heads!

Alone at Night…

And summer finally kicked in with all its damn heat… I hate it… I never liked summer but since the temperatures going up that high in Germany too it really sucks even more. I really cannot understand people who try to tell me, they start working way more effective and their brain brings peak performance is temperatures go over 86° Fahrenheit. My brain and body stops working when the thermometer reaches +68° Fahrenheit. What is nice when you just sit and do nothing and already sweat?!? Anyways… let’s take a look on todays pictures…

Today I have something really neat for you. I was aware that this does exist for years and saw it in action for a while, but I never tried myself – Premiere! I am talking about the ‘undress-me’ clothing from [I♥F]. I was mentioning already that I would like to showcase some of Aindara’s designs with that special feature 😉 I chose to start with an amazing combination of the “Leni” dress paired with the “Lina” bikini. Since I am not a huge summer and beach fan, I wanted to try something different and went for a more casual, urban style – kinda a Wicca Casual *winks*

So as you can see I tried to show at least 2 steps of the undress me possibility of the “Lina” set. But  let’s start from the beginning. The sheer “Leni” dress was made to be worn over the “Lina” bikini and it perfectly fits above that with every movement as you can see on the first picture. On the second picture I changed to step 2 of the “Lina” bra, which lets down the right side of the bra. Stage 3 would expose the whole chest and I was wearing that in picture 3, but I was too shy to push both of my boobies into your face and because the tattoo has such a great back… you can peek into the window as I tried to do a mirror effect very subtle *giggles*. Speaking of the tattoo… it is a new release from .:Vegas:., available at the Fetish Fair. I really love their tattoos, especially because you can choose different stages from light to dark and as well often you even have the choice of a colored or black & white version.

Bounty Hunter

Despite knowing the journey and where it leads, I embrace it, and I welcome every moment of it.

[Arrival 2016]

I LOVE when “accidents” happen while I am setting up my shoot… if they are “positive”!

Today it was a lightning surprise, which started with a mistake of moving light prims around. I was playing again with some Mainframe goodies today. I thought of something different, something what I not set did with all the amazing cyber and sci-fi designs I got there. I have no idea what exactly it was that brought me to this idea, but probably I watched too much Star Wars lately. I saw the “Cyberdoll Helmet” from Fika and instantly had the vision of Boba Fett, the bounty hunter.

I wanted a strong, robotic female version of a bounty hunter and her hideout on a dark, desert planet. With the super cool “Wreck Hideout” from 22769 I had the perfect scenery to set up my shoot for my vision.

While I was playing with lights, again something happened what I usually hate like hell… I tried to move a set of lights and my camera flipped while editing and the lights ended up “somewhere” behind me. When I reset my camera and wanted to try again I realized, it does look fantastic! Those kinda of accidents I really do love, it just makes it harder to reproduce it if you want to shoot more than one picture and have the lights attached *frowns*. Then they keep moving with every new pose and you hardly get the same result – it took a while*giggles* It is a strange habit to attach lights when you can rezz them as well, but for what ever strange reason I get different results wearing them instead of rezzing them. The Mainframe event only lasts till the 13th of august so if you want to get some of those extremely awesome goodies – you just have  few more days!

Follow me Down

TUNES

Since I met you I’ve been crazy
Since I’ve been with you I’ve been lost
You make everything seem hazy
Love comes with such a cost

Nights avoiding things unholy
Your hand slips across my skin
I go down on you so slowly
Don’t confess none of your sins

Have I lost my mind?

When you’re young you always take what you can get
Even bicycles and sprinklers get you wet
Now I know that there’s a different way to die
My body breathes
Heart still beats
But I am not alive
Follow me down to the river
Drink while the water is clean
Follow me down to the river tonight
I’ll be down here on my knees

At Night…

TUNES

Sunk deep in the night
I sink in the night
Standing alone underneath the sky
I feel the chill of ice
On my face
I watch the hours go by
The hours go by


You sleep
Sleep in a safe bed
Curled and protected
Protected from sight
Under a safe roof
Deep in your house
Unaware of the changes at night

At night
I hear the darkness breathe
I sense the quiet despair
Listen to the silence
At night
Someone has to be there
Someone has to be there

Someone must be there

Captured by my own Thoughts…

The past week was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. Life changed with the pandemic all over the world, I guess most of the people try to work with it as best as they can. For me personal, I am not suffering not too bad from quarantine and lock-down. I still get to teach 7/8 hours a days from Monday to Thursday – I am on of the lucky ones to have students who have/were given all the needed hardware to do online school with them. I just adjusted my work space/office to have a virtual classroom. I set up my camera and monitors to have one screen share for files and another as “chalkboard” where I can write on. That is working really fine for about 5 weeks now, even if I really miss seeing my students in person sometimes.

I followed the discussions about how to start school again with high interest, as according to all other news we are not yet over the pandemic problems since we have not yet any kind of vaccine. So we still have rules like limited contacts only, do not take your kids on your shopping tours and in some areas even the duty to wear masks while shopping or being on public transport vehicles. All over they tell us the self made masks won’t protect us from being infected and only safe the people around you in case you are infected and do not know. Reading all that I thought, they will keep school online for the rest of this school year to be honest, at least for those who have a good running system and perfect contact to their students. I was so wrong… They now force all exam classes back to school with no exception of having better alternatives or possibilities, which would limit the risk to get infected. So even if you have a good running online schooling, it doesn’t matter. If you have better ideas against the given “10 – 15 students in one little classroom”, for example use the gyms which is like 3 to 4 times bigger than a class room and you could keep the class together with 18 people and still have more space between them and as well the teacher… no exceptions allowed. When I read the reason for that “no exceptions” politics I was shocked. The reason would be to TEST how the numbers of infections change, if you put 10-15 people with the teacher in one tiny classroom… WTF?!? What is wrong with our society if we use kids and teachers as “guinea pigs” if we could have other solutions to keep them way more safe and healthy? I would not say a word, if that would be the only possibility to go back to a regular school schedule and if we already would have ways to really protect people like I already said for example vaccine, or at least protecting masks and what ever it needs! Our kids have their parents at home, sometimes even their grandparents. Some have parents, who suffer from all kind of heavy sicknesses or diseases! Just because the symptoms are not affecting the majority of kids that much, we just take the risk of making our kids sick on purpose and make them bringing it home to the rest of their family?!? I just do not see the pressure of having schools back up and having all grades right for the next certificate in only a few month by risking the health and maybe even the life of people or kids, especially if we could have all kind of work-arounds like home schooling or better protection if the classes have to be in presence of kids and teacher. I am not a paranoid person, I wasn’t panicking at all over all that past weeks, but the news of the past few days just totally did throw me off and beyond.

With all of that, I guess it again pulled out my darker side again for my pictures, but I do not mind that, since I do enjoy that side of mine too 😉
Lately I found a mega cool tattoo brand called Vegas Tattoo. They really do interesting and well drawn tattoos for an everyday look – if you love tattoos like me that would be 😉 Today I chose one of their latest releases for Spring Flair Event called “Welcoming Spring”. The tattoo covers all parts of the body, You have something on your front and back upper body, your arms and hands as well as down your right leg. What caught me the most is, that the seams are extremely well done. A nice little detail is the sweet butterfly at your left hip with all the more dark looking ornaments of the rest of the tattoo 😉
Certainly I had to complete my style with a lot of incredible, amazing CerberusXing designs – I can’t help it iam just a [CX] addicted *winks* Since I am in a way better mood now, after venting just a bit today in the beginning of my post, I will see with what I will come up next…

Alien Species

TUNES

I’m an alien
I hope I ever get to see
I’m an alien
My beam of light is breaking free

Too alien for Earth
Too human for outer space
I’m an alien
It’s time to leave for outer space

Again  I come to you with some exciting news from CerberusXing. He again made a pair of kick ass ears – the “Withered Berzerker Ears”! The ears are unrigged mesh, which gives you the possibility to resize and position them to your needs. The HUD offers texture and tinting options for skin (12 presets), piercing (black, silver & gold) and the snake ( 7 different colors). Furthermore you have 2 tattoo options with 7 different colors and the possibility to hide it. CerberusXing as well was so generous to include a skin texture map, so you can do your own modifications if you like. Doing so would require basic editing skills as you have to work with textures and applying them to the object.

Speaking of modifications, Nefekalum Tattoos offers already one called “Battle Add-On”, which I certainly had to try for my post 😉 And since I an anyways addicted to the extraordinary work of Sir Skye, I had to use one of his newest releases for my tattoo as well. I am talking about the “Inked” tattoo, which you can find at his main store. An unisex tattoo, that comes with many options and possibilities as Omega Evolved appliers with materials, Maitreya Applier, Slink Redux Applier, Catwa Applier and certainly system, BoM ready layers and he again included some optional projectors you can use to let your tattoo shine in the right light 😉

To complete my outfit I used an older but for me still super amazing gacha from CerberusXing – the “Osseous Species” gacha. What I love so much on that outfit set are the spike parts, the tubes at the collar and the colors and textures the whole ensemble is designed with. It immediately reminded me about HR Giger and so I had to make a set in that style for my pictures as well.Thank god, 22769 made some great tribute designs that perfectly worked for my idea 🙂

Since I am anyways in a space and species mood, I guess I will jump into my Mainframe event folder and see what is left in there for my next picture 😉
