Ashes to Ashes – A Tribute to David Bowie

Zen 1a

On the 10th of January 2016, the world lost one of the most genuine and influential musician of the newer music history.

David Bowie

As a musician myself I adored David Bowie since I was 14. His most popular successes he had in the 70s and 80s but he constantly worked on his music and released constantly new albums and was an actor in many movies between 1973 and 2009.

In the beginning of his music career he was called an Avant Garde artist, as his music, lyrics and as well his visual presentations were way apart from the standard back then. Many people called him a punk or rebel back then. He changed his image in the beginning to the 80s more towards the standard pop music image – at least in his visual appearance. His music never lost the incredible stand out factor and anyways what kind of music he created – or with who – it had his very own signature. It always felt like he was one step ahead of the standard πŸ™‚

He left huge footprints at the music world and I am not sure if they ever can be filled… or if they even should be filled… ?

R.I.P David Bowie

Ashes to Ashes

Do you remember a guy that’s been
In such an early song
I’ve heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don’t say it’s true

They got a message from the Action Man
“I’m happy, hope you’re happy too
I’ve loved all I’ve needed to love
Sordid details following”

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain’t got no money and I ain’t got no hair
But I’m hoping to kick but the planet it’s glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I’ll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I’m stuck with a valuable friend
“I’m happy, hope you’re happy too”
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue,
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said to get things done
You’d better not mess with Major Tom

[David Bowie]

Tres Beau for Scala Gradiversary

Look #1: Tres Beau - "Breeze" (melon)

Look #1: Tres Beau – “Breeze” (melon)

Today there was a wonderful and exciting event going on at the Scala HQ. The Gradiversary event.

What is a Gradiversary event you might ask yourself… it is a mix of Anniversary and Graduation Show πŸ˜‰

Scala celebrates its 2nd Anniversary this year and so they decided to have a combination of an Anniversary and Graduation show.

With 19 designers, that made exclusive collections and releases for that show, it was a great celebration and I would like to show case one of them today.

Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau.

Tres Beau is one of the oldest and most popular clothing stores in SL and with her quality of designs, texturing, fabrics and colors she certainly is one of the top stores in SL for a very long time. How was that quote I got told so often when I was a child… quality will prevail and remain πŸ˜‰

For the Gradiversary event, Tres Beau created 3 different outfits, which are available in more colors that I will showcase today.

The first one you can see above, the “Breeze” ensemble. A wonderful combination of a compfy tank shirt and skirt with an amazing leather belt. The fresh colors already point out on the upcoming spring season and so the outfit is just the perfect choice.

Look #2: Tres Beau - "Sam" (tan)

Look #2: Tres Beau – “Sam” (tan)

The “Sam” combination again shows how fashionable knitted designs can be πŸ˜‰ The outfit comes in the standard sizes and as well in a slink and maitreya mesh body friendly version.

Β With the long arms and the high waist skirt – which just let a small space for the belly to peek through – is a perfect addition for the upcoming spring season. Still warm and cozy and as well sexy and fashion forward, this ensemble is available in several colors at the Tres Beau Mainstore!

I just added a stole from GizzA and boots from MODA to underline that wonderful chick attitude. The wonderful bag with the perfect color range was made by PurpleMoon.

Look #3: Tres Beau - "Tiffany" (teal)

Look #3: Tres Beau – “Tiffany” (teal)

For the third style, I am wearing the “Tiffany” gown in teal. A wonderful tight mesh gown with an amazing flexible bottom, that makes it very filigree, soft and airy.Β  The soft gradient on the color gives you a lot of options for accessories. The elegant necklace and earrings are already part of the outfit so i skipped any other kind of accessory to not overload the fine and delicate gown. Like the 2 other designs, the “Tiffany ” gown is available in more amazing color gradients and tones at the Tres Beau Mainstore.

Spot on 2015! – Happy and Sad Moments

EVE+Opi 03

Today I was in a very special mood. We are in a time of the year, that we call ‘between the years’ in germany the last week of December and the first week of January. It is that time of the year where we think a lot about the past year and as well about the upcoming one. Many try to find New Year’s resolutions, or things they would change for the new year.

I quit doing that as usually those things never work out like they should and why I need a special time of the year, to change something or think about good resolutions?

Still it is kinda a weird and strange feeling time with all those surrounding you and asking you about all this. I solved it for me with writing down the most exciting and wonderful things that happened though the past year and as well the most sad moments. Not for a special reason and maybe just to look back some when and remember better what I did in 2015.

I never was a very religious person, but I believe in certain things and as well some that are not to grab with my both hands. I really believe that there is more between heaven and earth than we think of and care about. Life became so fast and sometimes we just do not see the little hints and things that show is about exactly that.

That mood brought me on my styling and picture idea for today. In the spotlight of being questioned about New Year’s solutions, being like a puppet to not make anyone mad by really voicing my opinion and surrounded by mystical things, little positive sparkles that will lead me over to the new year πŸ˜‰

EVE+Opi 02

The 3 designers I would like to spotlight for today would be LeEnfant Terrible and Noke Yuitza and LeeZu. 2 of them are just 2 of all the wonderful moments, I was allowed to have for 2015 and one for one ofΒ  the sad moments.

LeEnfant I met a few years ago for the first time, but we kinda did not have the luck to get each other known better. But ‘you always meet 2 times’ is a quote, that we have in Germany. I am very grateful that I had the chance to meet such a wonderful person again and even more, to become friends with her. When I met her the first time, it was kinda just a designer/blogger relation ship and never anywhere near than what me and her share today. She became one of the dearest persons in my life. She is so creative, so strong and so unbelievable amazing, I really enjoy each moment we share and I hope that this will last a life time. I’m looking forward to even meet her in RL very soon and I can’t wait the day when I am allowed to hug her for real πŸ™‚

She made that wonderful “Emma’s Halo” headpiece for the actual round of We <3 RP. The headpiece is available in gold and silver and it comes with 2 different colored veils and as well as a second option with filigree shining tear drops. I decided to use the tear drops, which shall stand for the sad moments of the past year. The incredible details and the very realistic details are just 2 skills that are trademarks for LeEnfant’s work. She puts a lot of time and effort in her designs and to me, she is one of the most talented designers with a unbelievabel amazing quality to her creations.

EVE+Opi 04

Speaking of talent and quality, brings me to the second name, that I was talking about – Noke Yuitza. She is such an artistic and awesome mind and she is one of the rare people, that seems to understand my sometimes weird mind and thoughts. The first time I discovered her as a designer was in one of the past years arts in hats. Back then it was the “Maleficent Great Wave Hat” she released for her former brand Alegria, that caught my attention and brought me to her store. I found so many amazing and artistic, creative things, all with a special twist, which I realized is her very personal trademark. Every single piece she makes you can tell it is her creation. The amazing textures, the very special and artistic designs and lately as well the 100% original mesh items, which are materials enabled most of the time.

For today’s post I decided to use the “Etheral Body” with the belonging scarf and the “Atlantis Ankle Boots” from Noke Yuitza, which she made for her new brand E.V.E Studio.

The body is available in 7 different colors and comes in 3 standard sizes. Each of them has a color matching scarf to it, but I decided to cross colors and used the black body with the red scarf.

The body has a high slit at the sides and the cool “Atlantis Ankle Boots” in chrome and red were the perfect match to underline the sexy and cool look of the body πŸ˜‰

The high slit brings me to my 3rd designer for today – LeeZu.

LeeZu was my first employment in SL ever as a model. I remember so well, when I was desiring to work at LeeZu so bad and filled out the apply as store model. Weeks passed by and I already had forced myself to give up as I was very new to modeling and probably I would need more experience in that field, as Vixie Rayna IMed me and asked me for an appointment to talk. Vixie was one of the staff and managers at LeeZu and she was responsible for the store models. The talk was led by Barbara Nicholls and Vixie Rayna and when they told me I will be hired, I danced around like crazy and nearly could not believe. I was told to meet with GM Nikolaidis for my official store model picture and you can imagine how that felt for me… my first model job and then in one of the most popular and fantastic SL fashion store. (more about that exciting moment you will find here: http://wiccamerlin.de/hooray-i-am-a-leezu-model/)

That was back in January 2010 and since then I was a store model and some when I even got asked to be the store model manager, what was one of the most exciting moments in my SL life.

This year this great job sadly ended after 6 wonderful years. LeeZu closed the inworld store and only is available on Marketplace now, where you will find many of the amazing creations for 99 linden only! Believe it or not it was a very sad moment as the LeeZu family with all the wonderful people really became something very special to me and 6 years is a hell of a long time in SL where time flies by so fast… I will never forget that time and all the wonderful people, that became family for me – Thank you LeeZu, Barb, GM, Vixie and all the wonderful and crazy fellow models over the 6 years!

Today I am wearing the “Brigitte Body Tights” underneath the high slitted body of E.V.E Studio. LeeZu always was one of the most high quality stores for clothing and furniture. The texture work of LeeZu was so incredible great and detailed, I always admired her work and she was one of my idols when I started to make clothing myself. The body stocking shows how amazing and filigree LeeZu was working on her designs and the love for the details, for every little fold, wrinkle and light – simply stunning!

I do not know, if I can manage another blog post before the year is changing and so I would like to thank YOU all, for following my blog for the last year, for always showing me your support, for giving me blogger reviews and I wish you all the best for 2016 and hope to see you again for my new posts!

A Night after Christmas with Asia Rae and E.V.E Studio

Asia Rae 01

Phew Christmas is over and I have my ‘normal life’ back πŸ˜‰

That gives me time, to blog about the newest releases of Asia Rae, E.V.E Studio and EMO-tions.

The amazing “Magissa Latex Dress” is one of the latest news by Asia Rae. The dress is a fashion dream with the huge cape looking shoulder part, that goes down until the elbows and the amazing combination of a knitted texture for the sleeves in contrast to the shiny latex looking fabric of the dress itself.Asia Rae 02

The super cool hair comes from EMO-tions for the Shiny Shabby Event. It is called “Jezebel” The huge hair style with the extraordinary shape comes with several appliers for mesh heads for the hair base and as well the amazing head band is part of the whole look.

Now I would like to drag your view no the amazing horns. They were made by Noke Yuitza for E.V.E Studio. The awesome horns are part of her Moon Collection, inspired by the winter nature. As always for E.V.E Studio the horns are 100% original mesh and materials enabled. You can choose between different colors for the horns to make them fit your desires πŸ™‚

Sceneries are always important for pictures and for today I chose the amazing “Christmas Decoration Set” from 22769 to make my sweet and cozy background.

And now I will put back all my Christmas stuff into boxes and put it back in the attic of my sweet little Hobbit House until next year πŸ˜‰

Winter Dreams

Snow Art 1a

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

[Bing Crosby]

Snow Art 3a

Dreaming of a white Christmas… yes .. exactly that was what I was doing for the past days. I still did hope that at least a few snowflakes would show up for Christmas but… sadly not even a single one…

So I had to play with snow for the pictures πŸ˜‰

First I wanted to dress up all in white, sometimes I like it when I can blend myself into the scenery or background as to me that usually makes it most dreamy and interesting.

I started with the “New Age” pants in white, I always liked those pants and the special shape of them. Then I added the “Orion” collar from [sys]. The collar covers the chest barley and if you move it shows more than I like πŸ˜‰ So I had to search for something that I could use as a base to not distract too much but as well cover my body at least a little bit. I used the layer of the “Mummy Bride” of Ezura Xue. Just a few bandages around my chest and waist πŸ˜‰

The shoes are from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The “Shenna” heels in white of the ‘Chic Edition’ pack. I already had a funky touch so I went for the amazing horns from Death Row Designs. The cool knee patches are part of an [sys] outfit called “Alcane”

Now I had to find a place with snow and after trying a lot of different sims which are just Christmas themed I found this wonderful little place. A wonderful landscape with a natural and realistic looking ambience. Sadly I forgot to LM the place and after hopping around so much I forgot how it was called *grumbles* But I will try to find it again and update the post then πŸ˜‰

*UPDATE: Found the place again and it is called “Let it Snow”

I hope you all will have some wonderful, relaxed and peaceful days with the ones you love.

Merry Christmas!

Le Enfant Terrible – Vintage Bunny Puppet

Bunny 1

Finally I have time to do another post!

All the Christmas horror kept me away from all the blogging fun for way too long. But now a few days before Christmas I am nearly done with all the students concerts and kids musicals for this year – for thank god!

7 days to go and I finally will have holidays!

Bunny 4

Today I would like to spotlight one of the latest releases from LeEnfant Terrible, owner and designer of Enfant Terrible and a wonderful friend.

The “L’odeur du cuir” what means ‘the smell of leather’ is a full set of amazing items all made of leather. A wonderful corset with a huge color HUD, the super cute bunny mask in black & white, the incredible necklace with the long leather straps down the cleavage, an elegant bracelet and a sweet leg band with tiny little accessories, every girl needs,Β  in black, white & pink.

Β Bunny 5

The incredible details of this set, show the love for every little thing, that LeEnfant Terrible puts in all her designs. You can nearly feel the hours and days, that she must have spent on those designs. If you just take a look at the leg band – for today’s post I chose the black one – with the tiny little brush, the eyeliner, the amazing filigree chains and all those realistic looking creations… simply stunning!

Bunny 3

The “L’odeur du cuir” set immediately brought me to a vintage mood, when I put it on the first time. I added a bra, we made for Wicca’s Wardrobe, wich will be released soon and a fishnet panty hose.

The puppet hanger I saw, when I was walking a show and a real good friend was wearing it so I had to have it! Thank you Xandrah for sharing where you got them from πŸ˜‰

Last but not least I would like to drag your focus on the amazing sweet ankle boots made by Elysium.

Bunny 6

The incredible “London Ankle Boots” from Elysium come with a HUD, to change the fur options on the top. With the amazing suede fabric and the filigree lines that end in such a sweet box at the upper side, those shoes are perfect for the actual season πŸ™‚

Β The amazing “London High Boots” are sold by GizzA as well. The cool over knee leather boots are perfect for the winter season and with each pack you will get two different colors.

GizzA 5

The awesome glasses are as well an item, you will find at Shiny Shabby, made by Sora Tatham for Gabriel.

What got my attention is a wonderful, sweet animation, that lets you swap the glasses from the usual ‘on the nose’ up to your forehead. That feature is part of a huge HUD, which lets you change the frames to different fabrics, as well the lens color and transparency and certainly you can resize it too.
