Kunoichi

Ninja 3

Kunoichi s a modern term for a female ninja or practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo).

The term is thought to derive from the names of characters that resemble the three strokes in the kanji character for woman ( onna); said in the order they are written: ku (く) – no (ノ) – ichi (一). Early literary quotes include Enshū Senkuzuke Narabini Hyakuin (遠舟千句附并百韵?) (1680) as well as Maekuzukeshū (前句付集?) (1716), which specifically associates the word with the kanji 女 supporting the etymology. The “くノ一” writing requires the use of one character from each Japanese character set – first hiragana, then katakana, then kanji. While hiragana and kanji can exist in the same word, katakana generally cannot appear in conjunction with the others. There are exceptions to this, for example in “ゴミ箱” and “消しゴム”.

Female ninja are mentioned in Bansenshukai, a 17th-century Japanese book compiling the knowledge of the clans in the Iga and Kōga regions devoted to the training of ninja. According to this document, the primary function of female ninja was espionage, finding legitimate service positions in the households of enemies, to accumulate knowledge by gaining trust or overhearing conversations. One historically accepted example of this is Mochizuki Chiyome, the 16th century noblewoman with ninja roots who was tasked by the warlord Takeda Shingen with recruiting women to create a secret network of a few hundred female spies.

Ninja 5

Sometimes if you just put on one item, you immediately get an idea what you want to do with it… I am sure all of you had that happen at least once. Something like this happened to me when I put on the “Isis” collar and skirt from [sys].

When I put it on, I immediately had the vision of a ninja/asian inspired look. I remembered the awesome “Mei” hair from EMO-tions – that was sold on the south-asia inspired round of On9 – which I decorated with the cool “Albedo Horns” from Ayashi.

To cover my chest, since the feathers of “Isis” collar did not reach down far enough, I used the “Tigress Top” from Apple May Design. As it is a mesh body applier it fit perfectly under the feathers. Certainly a tattoo cannot miss when I style something like this :p This time I wanted something special and so the silver “Genius” tattoo from White Widow was the perfect match. I never made a secret out of it, that White Widow is my favourite tattoo brand… did I? *grins*

Ninja 6

I thought a little bit until I got the idea… but certainly a warrior needs some armor 😉 At least some that looks great for the pictures*giggles*

[LAB737] makes the most amazing armor parts I ever saw. So detailed and as well used looking makes them very realistic and I could not resist to add parts of the “Dragoon” armor to my left arm.

Ninja 2

Now the most complicated to get good pictures – I needed a good Katana and as well cool poses which did not just look like fighting. Certainly I could have sat hours and hours and make me some but then… still the good Katana would be missing since I just had som super old prim ones who kinda looked disgusting for nowadays standard. So I did what I usually do when I am looking for something special… I went to SL Marketplace 🙂

Ninja 4

I found a very little store, with just a few items for sale on MP and instantly fell in love with the “Katana Pose Collection”. A whole set with many variations of 10 different poses and 2 amazing handcrafted Katanas. Even more I was surprised that they were made for a female warrior, so exactly what I wanted. The poses do look more show or performance like than, fighting itself and so they were the perfect animations for the pictures.

Ninja 1

First I tried to build me a photo set, but soon I realized – I do not have the right items nor the knowledge of buildings and sceneries, that would suit the ideas and satisfy the styling. I jumped into the SL search and looked for places with key words like: japanese, warrior, ninja, katana and many more until I found “Kowloon”, a little island, which was empty when I arrived but the buildings and the garden was incredible beautiful. While I was shooting, the sim filled up more and more, but I did not see anyone around me and I became curious. I started to cam around, to spy silently, when I found an arena with a hell of a lot people who had begun a fight. I was so excited to see that, to see them fighting with Katanas and all kind of asian weapons, that I stopped shooting for a bit and just watched without disturbing them. I had so much fun watching them, that I nearly forgot to finish my shooting. It was an amazing afternoon and as well a lot of fun and I enjoyed the trip to a past time, that is totally new to me.

PNP Pose Show – Review

Last Sunday the OGlam Agency presented the first show for PNP Poses made by  Spishak Sorbet.  Spishak Sorbet made a lot of new runway poses that were show cased by the OGlam models. It was an honor as well as a pleasure for me, that I was allowed to be part of that amazing show. The show was sponsored by Apple May, Azoury, Sascha’s Design, Champagne, Priviledge, !Silken Moon and Finesmith Designs. To give a short impression of that amazing show I would like to show you the outfits and poses I was allowed to showcase on the Runway.

My first outfit came from Apple May and was called “Cheery”. For skins we were sent to !Silken Moon and for “Cheery” I decided to wear the “Blog Frog” skin of the Rebel II series. The green eyeshadow and lips were the perfect addition to the color- and playful outfit. The jewelry for sure comes from Finesmith – and yes it is no secret that I adore yula’s creations as well as her genius designing skills and ideas 😉 – for this outfit I chose parts of the new “Rusalka Inspiration” set that matched the colors of the outfit and skin perfectly! For shoes we were allowed to pick from the great Mary Jane Shoes, made by Infiniti Mirihi. For this outfit the new “Cheeky” pumps in red where the perfect addition.

For this outfit I picked poses from PNP of the “PNP Runway – Mode” series.

The poses I used for the show were the “PNP Runway – Model 6, 28, 30, 42, 50

The second outfit I was wearing walking down the runway was made by Azoury and carries the name “Tenue Tooti”. The skin as well is from the Rebel II line of !Silken Moon and is called “L8ter G8ter” The jewelry as well for sure is made by Finesmith Designs and it is a mix of the “Vivienne Inspiration” set (earrings & headpiece), the “Ash” collar and let me add the fingernails as they are from Finesmith Designs as well, the “Finesmith Nails Painter v.1”

This dress was a real challenge to pose with the big sculpted prim that makes the skirt. But a few of the “PNP Runway – Dress” poses wer able to take the challenge and win 😉

For this outfit I used the “PNP Runway – Dress” poses 11, 44, 51, 56 and 63.

From Sascha’s Design I got the wonderful black “Zephra” gown. Again I used a skin of the Rebel II line of !Silken Moon , this time the “Mio Vio” skin. The jewelry is the “Idioma” set from Finesmith Designs and the shoes again I got from Mary Jane Shoes and they are called “Attitude Stilettos”

For the SAS Dress I chose poses as well from the “PNP Runway – Dress” series and it was the 2, 4, 9, 15, 24 and 46 that you can see in the pics above 😉

My 4th outfit was made by Champagne with a signature face tattoo from Garded Secret, that was made especially for this outfit called “Samba”. The skin is the same as I used for my first outfit and the shoes again came from Mary Jane Shoes, this time the “Strapped Stiletto” in cyan. The earrings are part of the “Valeria Inspiration” set, what is a limited set from Finesmith Designs.

For the “Samba” outfit I mixed poses of the “PNP Runway Haute” set and the “PNP Runway Dress” poses. From the “Haute” set I used the 2, 7, 10, 19 and the number 55 of the “Dress” series.

My last outfit for the PNP Pose Show was from Priviliged and it is called “Isadora Exclusive”. The skin is the last of the 4 Rebel II skins and named “Funny Bunny”, the jewelry set is the “January Colletion” from Finesmith Designs, the shoes are again a pair of the great Mary Jane Shoes – the “Satin Pumps” in white.

This time I again used poses from the “PNP Runway Dress” line to showcase the wonderful gown. I chose the numbers 8, 18, 20, 23, 26 and 27.

I hope you enjoyed my short review of this wonderful show and you take the effort and make your way to the PNP Mainstore and try all those wonderful and new poses 🙂
