Romantic Dreams with [AD] Creations

AD Creations 01

Today I was in a very romantic mood, when I remembered the amazing “Oltre” mesh dress from [AD] Creations. Aliza Karu again outdid herself with a fantastic unique creation, that totally caught my heart.

The amazing “Oltre” dress has a bottom long skirt with a wonderful transparent net fabric skirt on top of the opaque one, wich adds a lot of sweet elegance and gives the whole look a very playful touch. The puffy sleeves in that darker color high light the upper body part in an amazing way. The huge head-piece as well is part of the outfit. With the long tentacle looking pats in the back it reminds me very much of some couture looks, I recently saw in fashion magazines.

The tendrils that surround the whole upper body and reach down to the skirt are ornamented with beautiful roses and petals what brought me to the idea to accessorize the dress with some designs of Pixel Box, which I got recently.

The “Goth Rose Ring”, the “Gothic Roses Necklace” and the “Goth Roses” eye patch. With the rose ornaments on the jewelry items it was a perfect match to the “Oltre” dress from [AD] Creations.

The fantastic building I used for the photo comes from “Atelier Visconti” and was released at the Fantasy Faire as an RFL item called “Morgana Fountain”. It comes in 4 different versions. One as a full version and 3 different versions of a ruined one. With the sweet water lilies in the middle totally matched the tendrils that surround the body and underlined the wonderful dreamy and fantasy look I wanted for today’s post ๐Ÿ™‚

Colorful Scary – Dia de los Muertos

Sazzy & Wicca Sugarskull 004

Today I am very happy, that I can have a post like this ๐Ÿ™‚

If you work a lot and always run behind deadlines, you need moments where you can just relax and have fun. The beginning ofย  this week requested exactly this and I was so happy when I saw Sazzy online. We talked about future plans and some amazing news which soon will be ready for official release (still working on the press release…) and then we had the ideas of making som fun pictures.

Sazzy & Wicca Sugarskull 002

We were going over our inventories and tried to find a theme that we both could style up, when we stumbled over some amazing outfits from [AD] Creation.

I was putting on the “WP Mesh Dress” while Sazzy tried the “Bluered Nesh Corset Dress”.

Mine was more like a corset/ pants combination even if the pants have very wide sleeves, I loves my pants ๐Ÿ˜‰

Those 2 outfits are both part of the Calavera Mini Collection 2014 of [AD] Creations.

Sazzy & Wicca Sugarskull 005

The Calaveras are originally skeletons made out of papier-mache, gypsum or sugar, which are placed in shops and sown the streets during the 31st of October and the 2nd of November. That is the time of the Dia de los Muertos, one of the most important holidays in Mexico.

The Dia de los Muertos are no sad days they are more the festive days. After old mexican traditions the dead people come back once a year to the end of the harvest season and celebrate together with the living a happy reunion with music, food and dance.

Sazzy & Wicca Sugarskull 006

To the outfits we are wearing 2 of the amazing Calaveraย  makeups that Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] Creations, made for those beautiful outfits. They kinda showcase the typical Cavalera face ornaments very colorful and artistic.

I added some horns I got as well from [AD] Creations.

Sazzy had some super sugar skulls left we used as props and it was great fun to just style away in a lightly scary way and so some pics together. There was not a special reason we ha to do it, or something we had to showcase it just was kinda like 2 girls playing around with their inventory ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you Sazzy for doing this with me and spend all the wonderful time with me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Excentric in Black, White & Red

Versus Magazine - EXCENTRIC TREND - Wicca Merlin

Today’s picture was made for the latest VERSUS Magazine. (http://issuu.com/versus.sl.magazine/docs/versus_aw_2014)

The theme was “Excentric” and after doing some research for a excentric fashion trend I started to think about how to bring that to SL.

I know that red, black and white are a very popular color combination but first of all I saw it a lot when I did my research and second… I just love it ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

I started with the “Madame Bovary” top from [AD] Creation. It is part of a full outfit but with the huge collar it was right the piece I wanted to start with. The deep neckline requested a bra, so I took the “Gothic Summer Bra” as well out of anย  [AD] Creations outfit. I wanted not to use too much jewelry in that look so I decided to go with the huge “Dotty Hat” wich I made for my own store Wicca’s Wardrobe.

Now that I had a huge load of red at the top of my stylingย  I wanted to bring back some red at the bottom and so I put on one of my latest group gifts, a special version of the “Ripley Heels”, wich are made for the Slink high mesh feet.

Then the trouble started as I had to find some pants wich are not going over the “Ripley Heels”. I went through my whole inventory and either I had pants with way to wide legs going down on the ground, which were hiding the shoes completely or i found as well some wich just cut into the ankle part of the heels. In the end I ended up using one of my latest releases, the “Anakri” pants [B&W Edition]. The pants have a HUD wich lets you choose between 6 different black, black & white, and silver options.

The bag comes from LaGyo and is called “Desperado Bag”. It is not a new release but I really love that bag for such a long time, so I had to pull it out again and get the dust off it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Like I was told so often ‘Oldies but Goldies’ and for this bag it really hits the nail on the head ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Like I said in the beginning, I did not want to put on too much jewelry so I just added a small necklace from Ticky Tacky, to not distract from the great red ribbon of the top too much.

Gothic Moments with LeeZu!

Leezu  - Aurora 001

Anyways if furniture or fashion LeeZu always amazes us with her creations. Today I have the pleasure to showcase one of her latest creations, the “Aurora” gown.

This delicate and elegant gown is a firework of textures and fabrics. The bodice is made with a black satin looking fabric. The right side has an amazing line over the shoulder and the left is totally blank what gives a very sexy touch.ย  The belly is covered by some filigree white lace on a black base. The black skirt is covered by a wonderful white laced top skirt. A beautiful brooch decorated the left side of the bodice ๐Ÿ™‚

The jewelry I decided to wear with the “Aurora” gown comes from Baboom. For this stunning gown I wanted to have something that is not blingy or too shiny but still something special. The “Xena Set was exactly the right addition. With the unusual shape and the cool non symmetric wholes it complemented the gown in a very special way. The set contains bracelets and a collar.

The incredible hat was made by [AD] Creations. The “Sophie Mesh HEaddress” added some more elegance and some serious mystic feelings to the whole look. With the horns, the black roses, the steel cage in front of the face and the veil parts it really made a great finish for my today’s look ๐Ÿ˜‰

To underline that black and white idea behind it I put on some of my favourite nails from Nailed It – the “Cracked Set”.

The Good Old Times featuring [AD] Creations, EMO-tions & SoliDea FoliEs

Solidea, AD, EMOtions 03

Today I had a very sentimental mood and that’s kinda the reason for those style of pictures for some news of EMO-tions, (AD) Creations and SoliDea FoliEs.

Lately I have a lot of those moments when you think back to the good old times when you started something. In this case it was a meeting with a dear old friend who started modeling with me and retired some time ago now. It was a very nice talk and not just whining about the good old times but we came across that there really are changes from back then to today – good and bad ones. One of the good ones is that nowadays the avatar really looks very nice with all the mesh, sculpties and what not parts you have for the body and as well for the clothing and hair. Wicca was born like a cybergoth with system hair and flexi prims were the top-notch as they were super new*snickers* I remember very well how long I had to wait until I got my first flexi hair from Gurl6 and my first skin from Nominee. Back then 75 L$ for hair and 250 L$ for a skin was a fortune for me. Usually you got your money from the camping chairs wich gave you like 2 to 5 L$ย  for a hour or from those funny money trees that gave you a linden here and there in a random time :p . We had to wear face lights to be seen on dark runways as there was no windlight at all and it was kinda as a revolution when Maitreya released their first animated poses wich moved from one pose to the other for runway modeling… yes we all had them and you saw the same 5 poses from nearly everyone ๐Ÿ˜‰

But enough reminiscing about good old times… because there are som many amazing news in the here and now.

The wonderful bacl dress are one of the newest releases from SoliDea FoliEs, called “Giz/Total Black” The dress comes in 2 parts , the top and the skirt wich as well can be worn single for mix and match purposes. The wonderful huge flower head part a well is part of the outfit. In the mirror you can see the sweet little flower, that holds together the belt at the backside of the dress.

For the hair I used the “Antoinette” from EMO-tions. A wonderful baroque hairstyle that went so amazing with the idea of my good old times rant ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Together with the hair, the idea of the mirror and the chair came up to complete the vision of a baroque look ๐Ÿ˜‰

The eye decor with all the incredible details was made by Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] Creations. The whole “Chain Make-Up” set comes with a wonderful tattoo layer for the makeup and the ‘tear-washed-down mascara’, plus an attachment with the sweet little heart-shaped gems under the eye and the inner eye corner.

For the jewelry I again chose EMO-tions, the “Dragon Heart” set. This amazing ensemble with gems and the little dragons framed in noble silver metal was the perfect finish for today’s look.

In a Tim Burton Mood with FrEgo & [AD] Creations

FrEgo 01

A few days ago I got a call from 2 dear old friends if I would have time to pose for his new top… what a question! Certainly I have time for those I call friends no matter what.

Plus… I know what amazing things they can do and so I was really excited and curious ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

FrEgo_Sleeveless_Summer_Wrap_vendor

FrEgo has no inworld store and you only can find it on Marketplace (https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/117990)

Since yesterday you can find the amazing “Sleeveless Summer Wrap” top there as well in 4 awesome summer colors.

FrEgo 02

But not only the top comes from FrEgo… The cool “Cutoff Jeans”ย  and the kick ass “Combat Boots” with all those sweet little details and in different colors, you will find as well at the FrEgo Marketplace store together with some more super awesome designs.

The huge and stunning hat was made by Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] Creations. The “My head mesh hat” comes with a HUD, wich lets you change the headband, the upper, lower and inner hat texture.

Together with the arm warmers from .shi I felt dressed right and had this Tim Burton mood already because of the colors and the huge hat. So I added some ripped socks and a small necklace to not drag the attention to far away from the clothing and the hat.

For the scenery I wanted to use something Tim Burton like and I remembered a skybox I got longer time ago from DRD and together with the poses from Del May I had a lot of fun going against the casual idea I had in the beginning for that look*snickers*. Sometimes the first idea of a look changes with every detail you add to it or even with everything you remove ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 04/24/2014 – Alone…

LOTD 24042014-01

No more I’m taking this hatred from you
You make me feel dead when I’m talking to you
You take me for granted when I’m not around
So burn down your bridges ’cause I’m not going down

This time I will be heard
I’m not gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

I hope you’re unhappy and hurting inside
I want you to choke when you swallow your pride
Lay in your coffin and sleep with your sins
Give me the nails and I’ll hammer them in right now

This time you won’t be heard
You are gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

This time you won’t be heard
You are gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

You fake your damnation
You pray for salvation
’cause your heart is made of stone
You can die and rot alone
You can die and rot alone

Just die and rot alone

This time you won’t be heard

[Bullet for my Valentine]

[AD] Creations – “Ecate” for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 @ SAVIAD

The FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 at SAVIAD is open. It will last until the 31st of March and many designers made wonderful spring themed creations.

TAXI: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/CSW%20Island/72/191/2802

For my second post I want to showcase one of the wonderful creations of [AD] Creations. Aliza Karu is one of the owners of SAVIAD and so she is part of a genius 3-some of designers, who make this possible.

The wonderful “Ecate” mesh dress is a wonderful dark, elegant and as well fantasy looking creation. The combination of opaque fabrics, laced decorations and fantasy looking wings just made this creation to a must have for me. The “Ecate” gown has so many different way to style it up, I will have a lot of more fun with that in the future, too ๐Ÿ˜‰

The tight basic accents the shape in a wonderful way and gives the whole look the elegant and adult looking touch. The laces parts at the shoulders again make it more playful and romantic again. If you like it more simle you just can use the shoulder arts without the ruffles as it is as well included in the whole pack. The hear piece as well is part of that wonderful dress. The little bow made of pearls combined with the black roses just makes the dot on the “i” to complete the look.

The poses you can find as well at the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair, at the store of *PosESioN*. Dahriel made some amazing new pose set for the fair. Some of the new poses are kinda a 2 in 1. Lightly animated moving from one pose to another. Certainly you can find his ‘normal’ runway poses as well as always with a wondeful smooth transition. As well you will find 2 of the “Posesive” sets. Incredible poses for editorial and art shoots.

The hair was made by Mirja Mills, owner and designer of EMO-tions. The “Anne” hair style is a non symetric one, with kinda a curled ponytail that comes to the front over your right shoulder. The fatpack again comes with the super cool HUD what really saves your inventory from being overloaded as you can change the color of the hair via the HUD. So ladies… only 2 items more for your inventory instead of one for each color ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

The amazing face decoration is the “”Giulia” mask from SoliDea FoliEs. It is the item of the actual Couturier’s Docks but I am not really sure if there are some left. It was limited to 50 pieces only and when I looked the last time when I was there they nearly all were gone… but… you never know :p .

Wicca’s Weird Wardrobe: Fear of the dark

Dark Angel 001

I am a girl who walks alone
And when I’m walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it’s dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something’s
Always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s
Always there

Have you run your fingers down
The wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you’re searching for the light?
Sometimes when you’re scared
To take a look
At the corner of the room
You’ve sensed that something’s
Watching you

Dark Angel 002

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no one’s there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you’re sure there’s
Someone there

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense, and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have constant fear that something’s
Always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s
Always there

When I’m walking a dark road
I am a girl who walks alone

Dark Angel 003

When I was styling the today’s look, I was listening to one of my favourite bands called Van Canto. I will attach the song that I liked most during my styling session at the end of this post ๐Ÿ˜‰ With this music on my ears I could not resist to just let it flow and see what comes out ๐Ÿ˜‰

I strted with the amazing “Emi Corset” from N1CO. The corset with the spiked bra are mesh made and coming in different sizes, I am sure you will find one to match your shape ;). As so often for N1CO, the “Emi Corset” comes with a HUD that gives you a hell of a lot of possibilities to customize the colors and textures. You can color the spikes, the corset straps and lines, the buckles and as well the corset itself with different patterns.

The pants i took from the “Tribute to Kattaca” outfit from [AD] Creations. The full outfit is amazing as well and I will make sure to show case it as soon as possible as well, but the pants just were the right addition for my today’s look. Since the pants are quite ‘open’ I added the “Glitter Pants” from LeeZu to cover my private parts ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

The amazing “Saxa” mesh boots from SeVered GarDeN, caught my attention. The boots are mesh made but with 2 parts. The leg part and the foot part so you even could add another pair of shoes if you would like to.

Now i would like you to take a closer look at the bracelets and the necklace. Not too long ago I was asked if I would like to blog a – for me –ย  new brand. I never heard about Enfant Terrible before and I am really surprised how that could happen. Enfant Terrible is the store for all those people who wanna be a little extra ordinary. LesEnfant Terrible, owner and designer of Enfant Terrible, has the special taste and feeling for the non usual and out of the box designing. All she creates has her special twist and tweak what makes all of her creations so unique. The “Chloes” set wich comes with bracelet and collier shows her amazing skills when it comes to texturing and creating. The set is HUD driven and you can exchange the gems and totally match any styling you working on. The filigree “Chloe” collier shows with how much love and time LesEnfant Terrible designs her creations.

Many of you know how addicted I am to little details and accessories. So it was clear for a kinda demon style I cannot just leave my face blank and casual with just some makeup :p .

The amazing “Scara” version of the “Morbida” from SIlken Moon made the right basic for an amazing dark and demon looking face. With the wonderful drawn face parts the “Morbida Scara” totally meets my likings. In the package as well you will find another version wich is just grey. I rarely saw a grey skin with so much details and great made body parts. The “Blackness Face Chain” from Soedara I carry around for quite some time and I never saw it fit to something until today ๐Ÿ˜‰ . The chains look very realistic and with the little red gem at the forehead it was the perfect addition. The cool and scary “Damage – Spiked Eye 001” was part of the Halloween collection fo Finesmith for this year. I just loved the look and the 2 little spiders that seem to crawl up the chain that falls down the cheek.

The hair was a new release of EMO-tions for the last weekend. The “Skip a Beat” hair was made as a tribute to Skip Staheli and it can be worn unisex and in different styles. For the fatpack the hair can be color changed with the new HUD that Mirja Mills started to use for all of her latest releases.
