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.

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 😉 . 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.

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 😉

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 😉 . 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.

Taste the the Rainbow Hunt – Faster PussyCat

Rainbow Hunt - FP+SS 001

Again I would like to drag your attention to the ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ hunt. Faster Pussycat made a mini collection of 4 amazing outfits for that crazy and colorful hunt. Today I would like to spotlight the “Lady Rainbow Pantsuit”. Honey Bender and PoosyKat LittleBoots really became crazy with the rainbow theme. The pantsuit is shoulder free and super cool scarf, that is part of the outfit, makes a perfect addition to the suit.

Rainbow Hunt - FP+SS 002

The huge dragonfly as well is part of the ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ hunt and comes from Studio Sidhe, a super cool poses and prop store. The huge colorful dragonfly works like a glider. you just have to sit on the bar and you can fly all over the grind with the amazing hunt gift.

If yxou would take a closer look at the hands now… I would like to drag your attention to my nail polish. Malicia Python, owner an designer of Silken Moon made a huuuuge palette of various colors for the SLINK hands. The shine of the nailpolish is really amazing and so awesome realistic! You should really take a look at the Silken Moon Mainstore and see all the beautiful colors.

The incredible realistic shoes are made by ENNA. The sneakers really caught my heart, as they are so well textured. The “ENNA Sneakers” for women are available in different colors, wich you all can see at the ENNA Mainstore. For the hair I cheated a little bit. I took the white version of the “Octavia” hair from Zibska, and colored all the single parts in the same bright col9ors, that I found on the “Lady Rainbow Pantsuit” from Faster Pussycat. For the makeup, I decided to go with a mix of the amazing “Cool Pink” eyes from LovelyMi and the “Wicca Lips Blue Steel from Silken Moon.

Rainbow Hunt - dm! 002
For my first but certainly not last post, I would like to showcase the contribution of devousMind to the ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ hunt. Chandra Meehan, owner and designer of !dM, made an amazing corset outfit for the hunt.  The very colorful corset made of all the rainbow colors. The awesome frilled white pants, the sweet collar, the white fishnet tights and the sweet net train that brings back all the sweet colors 😉

For me, the usually black loving person it was not immediately comfortable to be so colorful, but one by one I got used to it. First I added the yellow version of the “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” from LeeZu when I came across the super cool “Codie” hair from Discord Designs. It had a rainbow colored  version in it and it was going perfectly with the “Valentina” corset from !dM. Each hair color of the gacha coes with a “Ripley” black hairbase. The “Codie” hairstyle was made for the gacha at the ’24’ event and usual colors will follow at the Discord Designs Mainstore after the event. To add my little rebel to the whole look i decided to go with one of the newest tattoos from White Widow. Julie Hastings made some new body tattoos, wich as well come with a tango applier for all those who love the new mesh boobies.

For the picture I wanted to go crazy with colors and items so I decided to put a lot of colorful candy behind and around me. I got a little bit the feeling of “Wicca in Wonderland” as I added the way too big teapot and the huge muffins and lollipops*giggles*

This is what you're hunting for...

If you are not sure what to search for … look the picture above. That would be the item you should look for 😉

The “Somewhere over the Rainbow” hunt is definitely worth a try, as many amazing designers put incredible colorful items for the hunters.

Chop Zuey: Art in Second Life ;)

Chop Zuey Full

The idea for this post was born when I  visited the Arts in Hats event, that was happening not too long ago. Belle Roussel, owner and designer of Chop Zuey, made the wonderful “In Memory of a Watermelon Fascinator” for that event and from the moment I saw it, I had the imagination of being in a museum watching art.

The wonderful “La Traviata” gown as well is one of the newest creations of Chop Zuey. Belle started to make full gowns with matching jewelry parts not too long ago and opened her new Sky Boutique, where you can find all this amazing creations. The “La Traviata” gown is available in different colors but with my addiction to black clothing, I certainly picked the black version for the post 😉 The wonderful black gown is mesh made and the amazing jewelry parts, like the upper end of the gloves, the beautiful shoulder part, as well the earrings, bracelets and the necklace are part of the gown. Basically Belle made a ready to wear outfit for all lovers of the elegant evening wardrobe ;).

The hat is one of the amazing creations of Xenobia Foxclaw. She made an amazing collection of black and white hats and the “Blackwell No. 6” is just one of them. So you might wanna go over to the Xen’s Hats Mainstore if you wanna see ll of the new releases ;).

The hair is one of the amazing hairstyles of EMO-tions. The “Chevia” hairstyle was made in a special color for Miss Chevia, as she won the auction of the FFL event, where Mirja Mills, owner and designer of EMO-tions, auctioned herself off for charity. I am very happy that Mirja now gave this hairstyle to all of us as, it is an amazing elegant hairstyle that still has some edges 😉

Now I just had to try building a little to realize my imagination of the museum at night thing 🙂 . Those who know me, might figure what it took until I had those few prims together and some texture on it. Usually if I try to build you have something apocalyptic looking something where you really have to have a good imagination to figure out what I wanted to do originally *laughs*. But after some hours it worked out somehow and … tatataaaaa… here it is 🙂

Today at LeeZu – Working in Second Life

LeeZu - Blue full

Some of us just explore and enjoy their Second Life, while other enjoy working in Second Life to earn their lindens. I decided, that for me it is fun to work for designers in Second Life. LeeZu is one of those 🙂 I am working as  LeeZu model for over 3 years now. I remember it like it would have been yesterday when Vixie Rayna IMed me in January 2010 and hired me for LeeZu. I was dreaming for a long time to be a LeeZu model, since LeeZu always was one of my favourite brands. So you can imagine, what it meant to me as I was asked if I would like to be a store model at LeeZu 😉

After 3 years I still feel honored for the opportunity to work for LeeZu and so I like to share my looks, that I prepare for my store shifts.

Today I was in a little blue mood and since LeeZu had so many new releases lately I tried to make a blue mix and match. The “Helena High Heel Pants” are one of the latest addition to the LeeZu Mainstore. What I like a lot on those pants is the fact, that you have the shoes matching already with the pants. Sometimes it is really hard if you do not wanna just wear pumps, to fin shoes that match the mesh pants. Mostly you have the pants sleeves sticking through the shoes or if you push them down you see some gaps between your legs and the shoes. So the fact to make shoes with integrated pants, for me is a genius one. The top as well, is one of the latest releases called “Lulu Blouse” The blouse is transparent if you only wear one layer but since LeeZu always provides different layers and as well a tatoo version of it, yu can wear 2 or more over each other and then you can make a non transparent look as well. For my post, I am wearing 2 different layers. The jacket as well certainly comes from LeeZu 😉 It is the amazing “Victoria Blouse”. The huge ruffles at the shoulders for me made a great eye catcher for the more simple looking outfit.

So.. one last look into the mirror and ready to go over to LeeZu 😉 And I guess, if I heard it right, it will be the last time that I go to the actual Mainstore. Tomorrow will be grand opening of the new LeeZu Mainstore!

Love for Donna Flora – GizzA for Squinternet Larnia

yeriakapokalyptic1-2048

Today I would like to show you another contribution for the great Love for Donna Flora event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/)

Please make sure you visit the Love for Dona Flora sim and see all of those amazing designs, that were created to help Squinternet! (Taxi: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/139/155/31)

For the first picture, the credits go out to Falbala Fairey. She asked if I would have blogged the “Yeriak” gown already, the one Giz Seorn, owner and designer of GizzA, made for he Love for Donna Flora event. She wanted to do a special picture together with another new release from GizzA, in a way of good versus evil. As usual I get asked to do the evil part I was wondering, why she asked me for the “Yeriak” gown…  as I arrived I saw Falli in the new “Thorn Dress” and I did understand… Today she gets to be the evil and me the good one! I would like to thank Falli for that amazing picture. She even did some wonderful closeups, that you can see together with her stylecard on her blog (http://falbalafaireyfashionblog.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/in-darkness-shines-the-light/)

Gizza - Yeriak for Donna Flora 001.

Let’s take a closer look on the “Yeriak” dress. The amazing corset shows, how much love for the detail Giz puts into her designs. The filigree and delicate lace that covers the waist and the wonderful opaque colored texture, that is placed on the chest make a perfect combination for this playful, vintage touched outfit. The gloves bring back the theme of the corset and the huge headpiece with the awesome sheer and flexible parts that are repeated in the skirt as well. The huge flowers that decorate the waist and as well the hat add a huge ‘eye catcher factor’ and together with the stockings and the garters it makes a perfect vintage touched outfit. The whole ensemble is a perfect contribution to the Love for Donna Flora event as it kinda is a tribute as well to Squinternet Larnia, the queen of the vintage look 😉

Out of the Darkness

 

Violator Kneel

TUNES

Out of the Darkness

How does it feel when your little world’s broken
Everything’s splattered with dirt
Too many words full of poison I’ve spoken
Now you are finally hurt
Nobody came from the outside to touch us
The enemy came from within
He came with his fear and with fear he did seize me
Tell me now where to begin

Violator Side

Welcome again to my hour of darkness
I put a spoke in my wheel
I was the fool who just gave it away
But this was the way I did feel

Violator Double

I couldn’t help but I
I’ll set it straight
No need to hide behind doubts
And I’m begging you please
Won’t you hear me I’m calling, so

Violator HairTake me out of this darkness
And right back into the light
Show me how can I get back to you

Welcome again to this hour of darkness
The shadows are finally back
All of my nightmares are waltzing Mathilda
Better I turn on the light

Mila Tatham, owner and designer of SoliDea FoliEs, contributed 2 amazing creations. One of them is the “Dotty” dress. A wonderful short white dress with huge black spots. The delicate laced top, together with the amazing collar and writs parts call for a cute, nice and all sweet styling usually. So I wanted to give it some twist and as I showed it to Malicia, all she had to say was like “…you look like a crazy, freaky stewardess”.. thank you Mal.. so much to that :p .

I added one of the amazing hats of Donna Flora called “Blackpool” and some hair from Amacchi that they gave away at the hair fair as a gift 😉

Solidea - Hope for Donna Flora shoes

The shoes I used for this post, are one of the amazing creations that Energie showcases on the actual Shoe Fair 2013. The “Flirtiny” heels really caught my attention as they were something new to me. First of all I saw they come with 2 different HUDS. One for socks and skin options and one for the nails and all the amazing spikes. What was special to me, was the idea of not having regula stockings that do not show the toes. I liked how the stockings have open spots at the feet and with the HUD you can choose from different ornaments for the stockings, different colors of the stockings and even a ripped option. All the different stockings that you can choose for the feet , are delivered as well in a special stocking bag, wich comes with the shoes. The extreme high heels can be decorated with 3 different colors via the HUD – Gold, Silver nd black. If you wanna see more of the amazing ne creations of Energie hurry to the Shoe Fair 2013 and see what  else they have new!

Brave Woman – A Tribute to Donna Flora

Love for Donna Flora full

Some brave women, not the famous ones, fought for the right to vote early in the last century, they were called Suffragettes in a pejorative manner. They went on hunger strikes, were forcibly fed, went into passive resistance and took other measures to claim that women are equal. After almost 20 years of fighting, the right to vote was finally granted in 1919 (USA) and 1920 (UK). Being a political decision, it had a strong impact on the women’s lives and their appearance. Long hair was cut, and skirts shortened, the corsets went. Around then Coco Chanel invented the little black dress offering an unknown freedom of movement tot he wearer. She was right when she said, this dress would be “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.“ Today we think of Flappers, thinking back tot he glorious 20s, who would not have been without some brave women fighting for their rights.

But there are other ways to be brave, face an illness, be there for others, raise children, solidarize and to speak up when needed, to name a few.

When talking about the Love Donna Event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/), Mal and I decided to pay our tribute, too. I guess you will get why we picked the 20’s theme.

 

As Mal was too late fort he Love Donna Flora event, she will donate all her Flapper skins you buy in the main shop. Click here for more details http://wiccamerlin.de/silken-moon-flapper-line/

Or help by visiting the Love Donna Event and enjoy what the awesome designers of SL donated to pay their tribute. The Love for Donna Flora Event will take place from the 25th of July until August the 11th. For a Limo please click HERE (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/135/127/31)

Our hearts go out to Sqinternet, the person behind Donna Flora, please send your hearts, too.
