Black & Gold – Happy New Year!

 

Back & Gold… always an exciting and most of the time elegant color combination. To me it was always kinda powerful, as well as it is a great contrast between the dark and more matte looking black and the shining and bright gold tones πŸ˜‰

I started with the “Lily Dress” from United Colors. That dress really is an amazing design. It comes with a HUD, that lets you change the style of the dress from a ground long dress to the sexy upper body design and as a bra top style only! So with the purchase of the dress you will get 3!

I do love mix and match and layering clothing, to create interesting looks, that do not show everything on the first view and so I put the amazing “Ulla” bodice under the “Lily Dress”. With the delicate lace parts and the solid middle part, it was perfect to go with the amazing dress. To stay with the gold & black idea I added the wonderful “Metallic Arrow” tattoo from Izzie’s. The tattoo comes in a gold version and several silver shades as well.

The great bracelet on my right hand and the amazing eyepatch are made by Bauhaus Movement, while iI used one of the “Lady Faith” gloves from Asteria for my left hand – yes, I really do like non symmetrical accessories πŸ˜‰

The awesome fitting rings are designed and made by Ivi, Bing, owner and designer of Formanails, who did as well the amazing mesh nails with these incredible filigree gold topping.

The eye makeup I found at Nanika. With that golden tear andΒ  the golden dust around the eyes it was a perfect match for my todays look.

For the shoes I used the “Monarch Heels” made by Reign, which I picked up on the great Black Friday sale. The have a huge HUD for leather and metal colors and so it was easy to color them in black and gold as well, to match the styling πŸ˜‰

For the set, I was thinking a long time what to do, until I decided to go with a more minimalistic look. I only wanted something black and gold for the set as well and not something that totally overloads the whole picture. I decided to go with the amazing bath tube from the pose shop and the awesome “Confetti Balloons” from Apple Fall.

I wish you all some golden and amazing times for 2017 πŸ˜‰

Happy New Year!

Ice Age – Mysterious, Unapproachable & Cold

Snow, darkness, post apocalyptic… that all was something I had in mind for this post.

When I unpacked the new “Frozen” outfit from [sys], I immediately knew – this would be the perfect outfit for that post.

A cape style looking jacket and some long sleeves under it, which are directly connected to the skirt. It doe s look like as if you would have your hands in your skirt pockets. The short mini skirt and the deep neckline give the whole ensemble a very seductive touch and I guess you should be not a freezy doll to wear that in the actual season *grins*.. ok maybe you can add some tights :p

The deep neckline was just perfect for the wonderful, filigree “Carlisle” necklace from Zibska. It comes with a huge HUD, that lets you customize it to many different color combinations.

For the boots I chose our new “Faye” boots, which we released for the actual Liaison Collaborative. The “Faye” boots come in many different colors and fit the Maitreya and Slink body.

The stunning and extraordinary head piece as well comes from [sys]. It was made for the Winter Solstice event from Pale Girl Productions. The event already is over sadly but I am sure you will find the “Kalt” head piece at the [sys] main store by now. All the amazing chains and pearls are part of the head piece and make it a real art piece!

The incredible awesome makeup was done by Slackgirl. She really has a hand for unusual and exciting face art! The “Cursed” makeup comes with a kick ass mesh piece around your neck as well, which i will probably showcase soon as well. for this post I decided to just use the makeup.Β  The awesome accented dark eye shadow with the wonderful gradient from the top to the bottom of the face is highlighted by the little silver – I am tempted to say Swarowsky – jewels and the awesome little moon at the forehead. It just gives you THE mysterious and seductive, tough look, like a cold and unapproachable strong lady.

When I looked for a location i just typed ‘ice age’ into search and right the first location that came up was ‘objective’ There isn’t much going on there but what I found was just perfect for my idea.

A cold, post apocalyptic snow chaos, with just a few structures left – buried in snow and ice.

I really had fun doing something ‘arctic and cold’ even if we still have no snow over here in Germany :p

Merry Christmas with Blacklace & Glamistry

I never did any Christmas posts with lingerie I guess so I thought, this year I finally could have one :p

Maybe it was not that, but the fact that I am stuck at home with pneumonia till christmas and all of a sudden my day is so long, that I can play around with stylings more than I ever expected right before Christmas πŸ˜‰

Usually the days before Christmas are very hectic in RL. In school we need to finish the last Christmas presents for the parents, music students want to have a Christmas concert or I need to run for some last-minute presents… that all was wiped out all of a sudden, when I got told “You will stay at home on the couch, no cold air, no huge activities” by the doctor.

I never had pneumonia before and I have to admit it sucks.. all that weird coughing and fever that makes me feel dizzy and tipsy… horrible. I love my work and I enjoy my life! So being stuck on the couch is probably the most ugly thing I can imagine.

I was called a bad patient before, for being not patient enough and just laying down until I am better.. but hey… life is too short for just laying down and doing nothing!

When I saw the amazing group gift with the cute santa hat at Argrace, I did know, I wanna do a sexy Holidays post πŸ˜‰

I put on the super sexy “Vivian Candy Cane” lingerie from Blacklace, which just was released for Christmas πŸ˜‰ I always admired the amazing details and filigree textures of Blacklace lingerie and with that sweet ensemble Blacklace reinvented one of their amazing lingerie sets. The awesome shoes are made by Glamistry and with the huge roses on the top of the peep toes it matched perfect in cuteness to the hair and the lingerie πŸ˜‰

To have some gold added to the holy days.. I used the “Faith” jewelry from EMO-tions, that reminded me of the little Christmas tree balls my grandma always had on her Christmas tree.

The furniture and deco I used for the set I mostly found in my “MadPea Christmas Calendar 2016”. That calendar was so much fun with all the quality gifties in it… I just can recommend it for all for the next year if they do it again πŸ˜‰

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Stand my Ground

TUNES

Stand my Ground

I can see
When you stay low
Nothing happens
Does it feel right?
Late at night
Things I thought I’d put behind me
Haunt my mind

I just know there’s no escape now
Once it sets it’s eyes on you
But I wont run
Have to stare it in the eyes


It’s all around
Getting stronger, coming closer into my world
I can feel that it’s time for me to face it
Can I take it?

Though this might just be the ending
Of the life I held so dear
But I won’t run
There’s no turning back from here

All I know for sure is that I’m trying
I will always stand my ground

Stand my ground
I won’t give in
I won’t give up
No more denying
I’ve gotta face it
Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside
If I don’t make it, someone else will
Stand my ground

She’s a Maniac

Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She has danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between will and what will be

She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before
She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before

[Michael Sembello]

When I saw the “She’s a Maniac” gacha set from Salt & Pepper, I immediately had the pictures of one of my favourite 80s movie in mind… Flashdance!

For those who are my age.. I am sure you remember that little beauty training her ass off, sweating like she would have stood in the rain to get hired by that ballet company :p

Yes, I admit, I had to watch the movie right there again while styling the new gacha set of Salt & Pepper and I highly enjoyed it – even if I saw it like a hundred times before – Thank you Salt!

I wanted to make my own interpretation of that main character of the movie, or how I would have seen the look in my very own vision. Since I am an 80s addicted, I had to have it in black and white with some hints of red on the lips and the fingernails, the hat as well was a must πŸ˜‰

First I experimented with a ballet room with lots of mirrors and what not, but then I felt that something more simple would do a better job, to have the focus on the actual look and as well the fantastic poses from Poseidon.

So I just set up a white studio with a ballet barre from Cinphul and the “BoomBox” by [Since 1975]. I rarely saw such amazing energetic poses, than the ones of Poseidon. And when I saw he hadΒ  ballet and dances moves…

Again I experienced that not only great clothing, a cool set and some good photography make a picture.. no… poses do their huge part to it as well. It is always a combination of everything in my opinion.

And it is a lot more fun to work with energetic poses… if it fits the theme than with just static photo poses. Sometimes energetic, movement poses might not work on the first view, but if you change the angle, you can have super cool pictures, or if you just use a crop πŸ˜‰

To give the whole look some more personal twist, I added the “Grim” eyepatch from [sys]. I love fancy headpieces and face deco and this little piece of art is just another master piece of [sys]. All those leather bands, chains and little decorations make this eyepatch to so much more than “just” an eyepatch πŸ˜‰

The “Charming” collar from Happy Undead just matched so nicely in colors, style and as well in the positioning – it nearly looked as it was made for the “She’s a maniac” gacha set!

Maybe you now have the same desire as I had to watch ‘Flashdance’ again and I would like at least to link the video of that song πŸ˜‰

LOTD 12/17/2016 – The Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Β 
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
[Robert Frost]
Finally I had a little bit of time after 2 rough, not nice RL weeks, to sit down for a while and use styling as therapy again.
I have no clue why but making fun styles kinda really works like a therapy for me, to calm down and relax.
This time I started with the awesome “Provocative Thai” lingerie from Blacklace, which can be found at he actual round of the Kinky Event. It perfectly can be worn as seductive lingerie as well but I really wanted to showcase that it can be way more than that πŸ˜‰
The sexy shorts I chose to wear with the corset, come from [sys] as well as the mega cool scarf. Now I missed something for the arms.. We have winter Wicca dear’… i was reminded by a very close friend who was with me while I was putting that look together. Fine. since it is winter I can wear the amazing “Jane” jacket from Asteria, which iI anyways love so much :p Ok lets call it sleeves as it just goes to the arms πŸ˜‰
The shoes are made by my own brand – Wicca’s Wardrobe – for the actual round of the Liaison Collaborative event. The cool choker can be found at On9 made by Slackgirl – she made the amazing, cool earrings as well and I guess you will find those at her main store.
The super cute hair with the amazing corset lines at the sides are the item from EMO-tions for the actual round of Hairology. I totally fell in love with that hairstyle as it goes so perfectly with so many different looks πŸ˜‰
Now I just needed some wintery looking location and what could be better than the new decorated sim “It all starts with a smile”. The sim is made with so much love to the detail and has so many amazing corners and places where you can do awesome pictures! It is really worth a visit and maybe since it is Christmas you want to show their donation box, how much you like the sim, so they can hold it for many more amazing shoots, journeys and moments for all of us πŸ˜‰

Phoenix – A Modern, Steampunk Interpretation

phoenix-1

Sometimes the mind takes off and you just go with the flow…

That happened again after I got the amazing “Lavi” makeup from Slackgirl. I wanted to do something special as the makeup itself looked very different to me.

First I tried something simple, as I wanted the makeup to pop out, but what ever I tried, it never did satisfaction to the makeup to my feeling.

That usually is the point when I put things to the side and wait until the creative muse kisses me with the right idea. But for what ever reason I could not do it this time without again and again thinking about it.

phoenix-3

With the amazing shine of the makeup, I came across the idea to use the wonderful “Asgard Wings” from E.V.E Studio, that come with the matching head wing parts. So I slowly got a basic idea for what would like to go for. Wearing the cool head wing parts I had to find some hair, that go well with them without hiding too much or looking too funky. The ” Tommy” hair is the perfect choice to match my vision, which grows more and more in my mind πŸ˜‰

With the beautiful detailed top from the “Scarlett” lingerie – made by Salt & Pepper – I had the arms free for the awesome “Elowen” arm pieces from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The shorts with the cool garter straps come from Asteria and are named “Mady”.

phoenix-4

With the cool “Lavi” makeup and the “Asgard” accessories the vision of an steampunk Phoenix was born in my head… I can’t tell you why but it just got tsuck in my mind :p

For the set, which I built at my studio I used the incredible “Propelling Gears” together with the “Rosina’s Undergeound” and the “Eye of the Storm” made the perfect ambience for what I was looking for πŸ™‚

Now.. simple runway poses would not do justice to the Phoenix idea. I was trying quite a few but nothing really would work with my idea and finally Gryphon Vendetta, creator of Poseidon poses saved my life. I ran into Poseidon via Gryphons amazing flickr stream and his incredible pictures. I totally love them and drooled more than once over his pictures πŸ˜‰

He does very dramatic and expressive poses which are perfect for exciting pictures and moods. I rarely saw such motion looking poses, which still look human and not distorted for the limbs. It looks like that he has poses for every occasion you can think about whether it is weapons, running scenes or flying moments. Sometimes he even has props coming with them like the one I used for the dark bloody nurse post not too long ago (http://wiccamerlin.de/something-evils-lurkinin-the-dark/).

I really got kinda an addiction for Poseidon poses since I tried them first and with all those possibilities he offers, I guess that will not be the last post I used them :p (I spied a Harley Quinn set too and I LOVE Harley Quinn*grins evil*)

But for now I hope you enjoyed my person vision of a modern steampunk Phoenix πŸ˜‰

LOTD 11/28/2016 – Mix & Match with Mesh becomes more and more difficult!

Mix & Match… still my favourite way of styling even if mesh makes it more and more hard;)

With the mesh body rigged clothing it is even harder as it already was with standard mesh sizes, but if you try hard enough it still works somehow… mostly :p

Especially if you want to wander around with your mix and match styles in SL and not just do pictures, where you can cheat about poke through or bad back views πŸ˜‰

Sometimes it can help that you combine several parts of one designer, but not always you find what you want by just going through several outfits from one designer – plus I really do love the challenge to combine different creators as well πŸ˜‰

sysasteriaemotionsglamistry-4

I had a talk lately with one of my close friends about what is the advantage of standard sizes and mesh body sizes, because many designers do not even offer standard sizes anymore.

Part of that is that the SL community more and more uses the mesh bodies and standard sizes not always do fit on those, even if you can work many especially if you are not going to show too much skin. sometimes it does not matter for a simple pair of jeans, if you can alpha out everything properly what is covered by the jeans, or if you wear a full body suit with long sleeves for arms and legs. The more skin you show the more difficult it becomes because of the default alpha HUD for each mesh body.

But with the bigger usage of mesh bodies, certainly designers will tend towards the appropriate sizes and rigging to those as well. So I guess some when the standard sizes will be gone due the fact that they will not sell to well anymore.

And exactly because of this, I keep some parts even if they are older. I know many laughed when I told about my inventory numbers and called me a fool that needs to rezz forever, but for mix and matches sometimes if you sneak in an older part it can make it interesting again and as well spares you a lot of headaches by fiddling with fitted mesh only πŸ˜‰ (I am not saying i would use my hair from 2008 or really old looking accessories from 2010 all the time, but I do keep some things that are timeless for me and probably useful)

I am looking forward where SecondLife will go and with the new Bento possibilities it will be a new adventure like it was with every new possibility the past years – That keeps SL exciting to me… working out new things and new ways of importing likes and dislikes into a new way of virtual life πŸ˜‰

Maybe in 10 years we laugh about good old times with standard mesh sizes, like we do now about flexible prims and sculpts :p

The weather at the moment drives me crazy… It is November and we have 12Β° to 17Β° celsius.

So one side of me wants to do winter mood pictures, the other tells me it is too warm outside to get into that mood :p .So when I unpacked the “Artemis” dress from [sys] I had to do another more autumn looking one;)

The amazing earrings and the cool bracelet I used come from MEVA and the clear pack pulled hair was done by EMO-tions.

The sim I chose for the pictures is one of my favourite casual looking sims. The “west of the Rain” sim is such a lovely island with so many different scenes and corners.

Freak Show – Am I a freak? Are you a freak?

freakshow-circus-5

I’ll tell you who the monsters are! The people outside this tent! In your town, in all these little towns. Housewives pinched with bitterness, stupefied with boredom as they doze off in front of their laundry detergent commercials, and dream of strange, erotic pleasures. They have no souls. My monsters, the ones you call depraved, they are the beautiful, heroic ones. They offer their oddity to the world. They provide a laugh, or a fright, to people in need of entertainment. Everyone is living the life they chose. But you, you undoubtedly will be one of those soulless monsters. Perhaps you already are.

[Elsa Mars // American Horror Story]

freakshow-circus-4

In current usage, the word “freak” is commonly used to refer to a person with something strikingly unusual about their appearance or behaviour. This usage dates from the so-called freak scene of the 1960s and 1970s.

[Wikipedia]

So… what is a freak? Am I a freak?

To me the term freak never had any bad taste. In school people called me freak as I didΒ  not look like anybody else. I had colored hair in deep hues and colors (red, green, blue)I used to have an undercut or s side cut and my clothing never matched the mainstream. I always had an addiction for punk and gothic fashions in RL as well. I never saw a reason to look like all the other girls, just because someone decided that this is an actual trend right now. During my teenager times it was not always easy. If you are called a freak or an outsider especially while you grow up and try to find yourself.. go figure. Several times I tried to level myself down, to what they called ‘mainstream or trendy’, but for whatever reason I always felt like dressing up for carnival and wearing a costume. It never took long before I went back to what I really liked, to again be called freak. Back then freak did hurt, but that changed big time, when I discovered that they just could not handle people who are different, but that was years later…

So I finished my school as the outsider with just a handful people in school I went along well, but each of them was worth a million more as the ‘hipsters’ in my class.

The I went to university to become a teacher, as iI wanted to prove my family I can do something ‘normal’ as well besides running to concerts and making music. That did last quite long and I really made my first exam quite fine. In germany there is required a second one after one year of guided teaching and when I had that first exam in my hands, I already felt that is the end of the street for me, since having the second year done would require to fit into what the guiding professor/teacher expects.

freakshow-circus-2

The same time I was offered my first contract from a record label with one band I had back then. so that kinda made the decision easy, to leave the teacher thing behind with the first exam in my hands and finally turn towards the music scene, which I had desired before, but due to the family reasons not yet looked deeper into that just playing in some bands here and there.

It was not a huge contract, but it was my first and it was one :p and the more I walked into the music business, the more I discovered that way more musicians are freaks that everywhere else I was before*giggles* and I am using the word freak not in a bad way. So many great individuals, great open-minded people and all of a sudden being a freak did not mean to be an outsider anymore!

I had amazing 20 years in the music world before I thought about teaching at a school again.

I always had music students and tutored some kids if they could not follow the teachers in school with afternoon hours of trying to teach them maths, english or what ever was needed but never officially as a teacher more as a private mentor or tutor. Somewhen – about 4 years ago – I got a call from a school. They were asking if I would like to teach some guitar and bass guitar lessons for some kids of the school band, which they just started. It sounded exciting and I thought why not give it a try, especially because the principal was so amazing. He got told about me from a mother, tha had her child at his school, that was having bass guitar lessons from me for years. So I went there for a first meeting to meet the principal and talk about a few things since I was not the only one he called to find a music teacher for guitar and bass guitar. It was a wonderful experience and during our talk he told me he was a musician in his younger days as well, playing trumpet and trombone. I do not know how to say but in german we have a quote that says ‘The chemistry between us was right from the first moment”. Again I was an outsider, a freak with my clothing and my weird stylings at school but the kids liked it, as it was not the usual teacher look. To me it was totally new again to be an outsider but one the kids and as well my peers respected and as well liked…

I am still making music, play in bands and having fun, but I found a new chapter in my life which more and more puts me towards teaching at an official school.

Being a freak… once it did hurt be called like that, but nowadays I do not mind be called a freak or being an outsider, as I learned the most interesting people are freaks somehow and not squeezed into the mainstream πŸ˜‰ Do not fear to be different.. life can be so much more exciting. You meet so much more interesting people if you dare watch over the border of the little plate we call life πŸ˜‰
