Can swimwear be avantgarde or couture? – Mad Diva shows it!!!

I never thought about that it would be possible to wear a bikini and still show my love and addiction to the extraordinary fashion πŸ˜‰ Kalyabreeaa Capelo showed me different. She made a bikini, named “Yula” that totally will be my choice for the upcoming summer season!

The whole “Yula” bikini is made of prims, no clothing layers at all but it covers all needed parts πŸ˜‰ The basic color is a mixture of black metal and red… again a plus as that are my favourite colors as well πŸ˜‰ For the shoulder ring you can decide between a straight one like I am wearing for the pics, that goes around both shoulders and then there is another version that more diagonal and lays on one shoulder higher than the other. Swimwear goes couture πŸ™‚ I guess Kalybreeaa Capelo, designer of Mad Diva showed of in an incredible way that this os possible and very sexy as well πŸ™‚ You really should make your way to the Mad Diva Mainstore and see by yourself how innovative and new all the designs are! Or you can watch the Claim the Fame shows on every Wednesday as well where Kalyabreeaa Capelo is one of the contestants as well and shows a male and female outfit every week πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Colorful Spring Mood ;)

Yes it is me even with colors *grins*

The weather was so nice and the sun kissed my pale skin and I remembered some of the latest releases of LeeZu and started to put some together πŸ˜‰ Rare but true Wicca can go colorful and casual as well. The warm sunbeams kissed my face and decided to go red and yellow for a bit πŸ™‚

The top is made by LeeZu and called “Miss Tre’s Blouse” in red. The sweet ruffles and the awesome sculpted collar really had the right touch for my spring look.Β  One of the latest releases by LeeZu were the “Cortez” pants here in light vanilla. You can decide if you wanna wear them with or without a shadow. For the belt and the straps on the right leg you have the possibility to change the texture with a HUD that comes with the pants. The belt and sleeves of the pants are made of awesome sculpties as well that give a lovely realistic look. To bring the yellow color more out I decided to wear the “Cat Tights” in yellow. To complete the lookΒ  I took the “Esprit de Sable” boots in red from Courtisane, “Ayana” inΒ  messy blonde from Miamai and the left “Kayma” earring made by Finesmith Designs. The skin is my actual favourite still – the “Castalia” skin from Glam Affair πŸ™‚

Now it is time to go for a walk and show off my new styling idea on the grid πŸ˜‰

The Fallen One…

…or Faster Pussycat goes Cabaret Colore πŸ˜‰

Last sunday we had an amazing show with the Passion Fashion Agency. Leandra Breen did it again and pulled together a real amazing show where we all showcased the new outfits of Faster Pussycat. Honey Bender, designer of Faster Pussycat, always was someone who I felt close to even before her designing days and it was a great pleasure that I was allowed again to wear her designs on the runway. Her designs really touch my soul again and again as they are so innovative and fresh but still fashionable and they allow me to go crazy πŸ˜‰

My first outfit was called “The Caged Beauty” and usually the birds on the skirt were black. But as they are mod you can change the color to whatever you like πŸ™‚ The Show was called Cabaret Colore so color was the key πŸ˜‰ The outfit itself contains the top, the skirt, clothing layer and the head-piece. The rest I mixed and matched together. The skin is the “Lea Gothic” skin made by LionSkins, with a green lipstick from Launa Fauna,Β  the hair comes from 3636 Designs and is called “Tara”. I just colored the platinum one to match the green. The whole jewelry set is the “Ocean Winds” set made by Finesmith Designs. The huge amazing wings are done by Talyia Tarber and as well colored by myself.

The second outfit I was allowed to showcase was the “Hellfire Body Suit”. The outfit itself contains the sexy unsymmetric bodysuit that only hides one chest with an opaque texture while the other side gives a bit more of a view with the sheer part πŸ˜‰ What totally got me are the huge horns that are as well part of the outfit I am so in love with them. The skin I used for is one of the Miasnow “Beautiful Death Beth” ones in red. The hair and hairbase again are from 3636 Designs. Earings from Ticky Tacky, the collar from Finesmith Designs and the cute wings from Material Squirrel completed my look. The shoes you can see in the very first pic above we got from PoosyKat LittleBoots.

It was a totally amazing show and I want to thank all the amazing fellow models and Leandra Breen for an awesome event as well πŸ™‚
