Post Apocalyptic Mood

MoonElixier 4

A Post Apocalyptic Poem

All these days are filled with rust,
With nothing living on the earth’s crust.

Ships and cars and planes and hearts,
Are all that you’ll find,
But who said that the human race has become refined?

MoonElixier 3
Civilization has ended… Yes,
Cultures have been removed… Yes,
Common sense ceases to be relevant… Yes,
But was it not compulsory before?

Perhaps the era of technology has ended,
And most souls of the past have descended,
But we are still human after all…
Aren’t we?

MoonElixier 2
Does a smart phone and a suit and a job and a home,
Make us the humans we have all known,
Or is there something inside of all of us,
Something that helps the wounded,
Instead of our own.

Maybe it’s the feeling inside when we see another,
The rush of excitement, pain, fear and the next world,
To discover.

MoonElixier 1

Maybe it’s the thought of putting down,
What has so much to offer just for your own needs,
Greedy…
Needy…

I don’t see a difference from this world and the last,
Perhaps someone I stumble apon will shut me down fast,
Or perhaps they will nod and walk on, right past.

[by Lewis Cavallo]

We <3 RP meets Skinfair or [sys] meets Elysium?

sys, elysium 01

Sometimes you have 2 or more items you would like to blog and then you think for a way how you can combine them 😉

On the first view they might not look as if they would go together well, but then, if you play around with accessories and scenarios, sometimes you get lucky and the look falls together some when…

sys, elysium 03

Exactly like this happened to me a few days ago. I put on one of the newest releases of Elysium for the Skin Fair 2016. The “Candice Skin” totally caught my heart. With the cute freckles and the amazing skin tones, I really wanted to blog that wonderful skin. I comes with all kinds of appliers for the mesh heads and bodies, but for my first post with the skin I wanted to use my very own avatar face as the skin looked so cute on it.

sys, elysium 05

The skin really comes with many different options. you have the choice to use nearly all popular mesh heads, which are compatible with Omega, plus you can choose between a freckled and a non freckled version. What I loved most is that you as well can have an option for no eye brows, since that is my personal trademark for years now 😉

What I appreciate a lot, Elysium offers the same skin as well for the default avatar including the head, which is a real rare case lately and the more I ould love to spotlight Elysium skins for that as well.

I was so disappointed when I went to the skin fair and saw nearly only appliers for mesh heads but no default avatar skins anymore. I can see the need for mesh head appliers as many do like to use their mesh heads. But as well I know enough ppl who like to stick to their avatar heads still – or even wanna change around between mesh and default – to keep their uniqueness and personality. I am not saying I hate mesh heads, I just was very disappointed to not being able to look for a new skin, if I do not wear any of those.

Anyways.. that was not the topic I wanted to talk about today :p

sys, elysium 06

The second item I wanted to talk about is the item, that [sys] has on the actual round of We <3 RP.

The “Nemesis” outfit, is another genius design of the [sys] sisters. It covers all the important parts and still gives enough room to see the “Candice” skin of Elysium 😉

The set comes with a HUD to customize colors and fabrics. The basic armor can be changed to 5 different colors of metals and structures. For the light parts you get the choice between teal, rose and silver/gray.

The cool collar and chains as well come from [sys] and were made for the Whore Couture event.

The cool shoulder parts were made by Eudora and totally went with the rest of the look. The extraordinary head-piece was designed by Pure Poison and gave the dot of the “i” in my view 😉

All those parts made no sense when I put them first together, but by looking at them more and more an idea for pictures did grow in my mind as well. I wanted something trashy apocalyptic looking to make a contrast to the delicate “Candice” skin and the amazing shining “Nemesis” set. And right there the trouble started. I was roaming around over many sims and places and did not find what I wanted or I could not rezz the cool “Barrel Chair” from 22769, which I liked to much for the idea of my picture. So I ended up with the worst thing I could imagine… I needed to built something myself…

I am everything but a good builder… and usually if I try to set up something it never looks like I want it to. I adore people like Anderian Sugarplum or Daffodil Crimson, who can create amazing scenarios and sets.

So I did know, I wanted the “Barrel Chairs” and something trashy on a sanded base. After I set that up, I opened my inventory and typed “trash” in the search of it and looked what comes up. I found an old bus station and some funny trash bins. A start but far away from what I was looking for :p

I remembered a wall, I recently got off a yard sale from Remarkable Obvilion. It is called “Junkyard Dogs – Corner Wall” and I suppose it came from a Gacha. Given the new term “Junkyard” (yes I am German and sometimes I miss such terms or words…) I made my way to the Marketplace and searched for some more ‘Junk’. I found various parts from Angharad Greggan, wich perfectly went with the idea I was going for. Together with some grass and dead bushes from [we’re CLOSED] and some time of pushing and turning and pulling, I got something I really liked 😉

Now just a few interesting poses and then…

SNAP HAPPY!

Final Fantasies with ~*S.E.*~ , Yasum & GizzA

FFF Logo

The FF7 Livestream RP Community is opening their doors with a bang. They host a 2 week shopping extravaganza from February 7th to February 21st. All items showcased there are some kind of Final Fantasy inspired as well as steampunk, futuristic and cyber punk orientated.

FFF 001

For my today’s look I chose the “Oculus Enhancements” by Souzou Eien . Thos amazing eye decorations really inspired me to do a styling that goes in a futuristic and steampunk direction.

FFF 004

The “Oculus Enhancements” are very versatile and you can customize nearly each part of it with a menu by touch. You can change the color of every part to make sure it will match your extravagant styling.

To underline the attitude of the “Oculus Enhancements”, I chose to wear some hair, I got longer ago from a gacha. The “Codie” hair by Discord Designs just looked amazing with the “Oculus Enhancements”.

FFF 002

For the jacket I took the “Vintage Leather Jacket” from GizzA. With the open front and the used leather look it was the best addition I could think of for this kinda special look.

Since it was open and I did not wanna put a shirt under it, I added some dirt and mud as well as some scratches to get this kinda apocalyptic look and mood, as if I just survived a fight;) .

The cool Steampunk Leggings” are made by Yasum. They originally were made for a steam punk event, but they just were perfect for my look. The come with a huge HUD wich lets you change colors and fabrics of the pants, the heels as well as from the added belt buckle. What really caught my attention was that the shoes are right connected to them and the heel was made with such love to the detail. All those cool little steam punk gears put together really caught my heart 😉 .

To see more of the amazing items made for the FF7 Livestream RP Community you just have to visit their amazing looking sim and look for yourself, if you do not wanna wait on more posts that certainly will come to showcase more of all the amazing items made for the FF7 Livestream RP Community grand opening.

News from Violator – “The Lady in White”

Soraya Vaher, owner and designer of Violator, designed 2 wonderful outfits for the AVENUE Cinque event. Today I have the great pleasure to showcase one of them 🙂

We all know Violator for extraordinary creations of outfits, jewelry and hair. Way back when I started modeling round about 4 years ago, Violator was one of the brands that caught my eyes as they always were different and out of the box and it still stays the same ;). All the Violator designs show of some very artistic skills and ideas.

“The Lady in White” was made for the AVENUE Cinque event and shows the amazing skills of soraya Vaher when it comes to special creations. ” The Lady in White” comes with jewelry and the wonderful headpiece. The long white and tight dress is decorated with amazing flexible and static prims that accents the wait and the ankles. The waist and head part remind me on some huge artistic, abstract flowers. The gloves and the collar add some very elegant touch to the whole outfit. The golden jewelry parts make an amazing contrast di the white dress. Little flower tendrils that decorate the waits part get repeated at the head piece and with an awesome line over the left shoulder. Overall this dress with turn heads everywhere, where you appear and you will feel like a princess for one night with the powerful, elegant and avant-garde looking “Lady in White”

To see the more releases and all the past creations you better take a look by yourself at the Violator Mainstore 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 01/30/2012 – The Day After…

30th of January… 2007 I was born in SL and now we have 2012… 5 years in SL, that’s a long time. I usually tend to forget that date as I did today. I realized it as the clock on my computer turned to 1AM and the date switched*grins*. So, today.. or better yesterday, I spent my SL day with styling and making pictures… like mostly*lol*. I had an argument lately with a few ppl about corsets. Some wanted to tell me corsets are fetish, others told me they are porn and some said corsets are lingerie only. But I disagreed and still do. Corsets came from way in the past before we had all those fancy leather and latex stuff and they were part of awesome medieval gowns for example.

So I took myself to a challenge that I can wear corsets without any touch of all that prejudices and create a modern non avantgarde look. Ok I admit… it turned out in some postapocalyptic again lightly but that might be because of my favour for this kinda pictures *smiles* Maybe if you just put the whole outfit in a different scenery it looks different again, but the big hoodie on the “Anath” jacket of Miamai. The rats that are placed over the shoulder just underlined the feeling of the day after a worldwide catastrophe where you just wake up and try to survive, maybe try to find other people and some food. The white corset comes from NV Corsetry. I discovered this store over 2 of my sissies, Lexie and Lorelei. The introduced me to Khurt Vhargon, owner and designer of NV Corsetry. He makes a very new kind of corsets, fully scripted to resize them in every direction. You can choose if you only wanna make it longer or wider and not just resize the full object… really an innovation for corsets in SL. As well he created so many different styles and different fabrics that you really get in trouble if you visit his store as you have a hard time to choose. The newest addition to that corsets is, that now he can help you fit the corset as well if you cannot do it on your own with a remote control of the script. That means he can operate the script while you are wearing his corsets. I only saw this technique at BAX before for the boots and it will be really helpful, if you are not yet that experienced in SL with fittings and scripts and still wanna wear one of his amazing corsets 🙂

For the pants I chose one of my all time favourites from LeeZu, the “Madison” pants. The earrings and bracelets come from Finesmith and the face tattoo from White Widow, as well favourite stores of mine 🙂 The skin is made by Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon. She made me this special makeup for the “Rookie” skin, called “Childhater” as I wanted black lips and dark smokey eyes. One example for the great custom makeups you can get from Silken Moon 🙂 As I had to walk through water for that post :p the water swallowed the cool “Pomski” boots from Kookie

I hope I could prove my opinion, that corsets are not only porn, fetish, lingerie or avantgarde… they can be so much more and as well a part of everyday looks if you combine them with jeans and a casual blouse :). *makes a note to herself for a new look*

And so I will bring the box I found, in the water at the beginning of my post,  back home and see what I got…

Apocalyptic Impressions

On the 14th and 15th of January Opium was holding a casting for the new Opium Evolution agency.

They gave 3 themes to all of the applicants. Vintage, Goth Couture or Apocalyptic. All the old opium models were allowed to cast and new aspiring models could try out as well, it was announced as an open casting.

After thinking about what I wanna do I decided to get for the theme that would be my own biggest challenge… I figured that many will go for goth couture as we all have our inventory full with black great clothing and accessories. Vintage… I really like doing vintage styles and I could not decide wich style I wanna go, there are so many like 20s to 70s and in SL you will find a lot of vintage stuff. So I decided to go for Apocalyptic.

With the theme apocalyptic I immediately have movies in mind like, Water World, Riddick, Books of Eli, Pitch Black or Mad Max. Kinda a post apocalyptic theme after a huge atomic world war, where people have to get back to the basics to survive. Ruined cities where a few survivors fight for their rights and surviving.

As you can see on a few pictures I was not the only one that came up with that idea. Malek Sahara as well dressed up for apocalyptic and I just asked him if he would pose with me for a few pics 🙂

I really had fun with this styling and competition for my self and to collect all the stuff together, that I needed. Together with some cool action poses and using the cool weapons I got it made my ticket into Opium Evolution 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 11/29/2011 – Mother of Darkness

Yesterday, again I made my way to the DAB Studios, owned by Daron Brandeis. He was IMing me, if I would have time for a shooting. A designer booked a commercial picture and he wanted me to style and model it. As I arrived, the designer was there and we had a short talk about what she wanted to have, the after all was cleared she left.

We did a few test shots to show her later and as we finished I was fooling around with a few looks and styles I created before as, I heard Daron freaking out about my actual outfit. Again it was clear that our crazy minds are not that far from each other and he started building a stand up little set. I put on the funny lightballs again and got very excited about, what he has in mind… I suddenly saw electric lights between my hands and instantly put on my glowy blue eyes… one word gave the other and I heard the camera going again and again… and what came out… was so incredible I have no words for…

Then suddenly I got a notecard from Pindar, who was sitting and watching the photography session… I had no clue that he writes and was hell touched by what just came up his mind watching the shooting. I asked him if I may use his little “poem” for the blog as it says more than 1000 words I could do…

Mother of Darkness by Pindar Kanya

I walk the spaces
between the worlds
and stalk the ebon reaches beyond Time
universes come into being
between the possibilities of my Will
to Be…or not to Be…there is no question
for I decide
what will and will not Be
I am the Smiter of Gods
the Eater of Worlds
and the Mother of Darkness
I call and the stars answer
I smile
and Darkness covers a thousand worlds
I wait for all beings
in the places where all fear to look
deep within
that raw, primal, ancient space
I stand
and one day…your final day
long after Death takes you…
you will see my face
