Crazy Connection: Minimal Style with NYU

nyu-face

“The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world.”

— Alicia Keys

Sometimes you do not need much to express yourself. Simplicity can be the key as well 😉

Not too long ago, I only knew Dahriel by name, before Raven Pennyfeather, owner and designer of RFyre, brought us together 😉 We started to do pics together and more and more we discovered that we have a lot of things together depending on fashion style and even personality. Sometimes it is just scaring how close alike we think and act. For me it is not something that happened a lot, that you know a person for not too long and already feel you would have known this person for your whole life. I am very grateful that Raven played fate and introduced us to each other 😉

The more we worked on pictures, the more we both discovered that we would like to make more out of our ideas and just post together sometimes. We kind wanted to have a project together.  We both are busy bees, Dahriel with his pose store *PosESioN* and me with blogging teaching and modeling but still we wanted to use the little free time to make something together. As we were asked for doing a column for a magazine, the “Crazy Connection” was born.

We both like the non usual and the different view on things, as well we like to have fun and be creative and we both felt kinda connected to each other, so the name was just perfect 😉

Today we wanted to make something special with a minimal style. What could fit better to start with as the wonderful creations of Nyunyu Kimono, owner and designer of NYU – Minimalistic High Fashion Couture. Dahriel picked the “Cropped Jumpsuit” and the “Tux Loafers” from NYU while I decided to go with the “Cotton Dress” with the “Cotton Cuffs” and the “Collared Bow Heels”.

Dahriel had the idea to use one of the cool buildings from Ewan Crumb for the scenery and he made the 2 poses we are using… I am sure that he will soon sell them at *PosESioN* 😉

For the skins we wanted something very pale that goes with the white stylings and Dahriel decided to wear one of his favourite skins from Fruk, while I used one of the new skins by Silken Moon. The blindfold was kinda the perfect finish for the whole look and it felt like a strong symbol for being open-minded and not just to believe what you can see 🙂

We hope you enjoyed our simple and minimalistic journey.

Casual Fever with M.o.w, *PosESioN* & In-Pose

Mow 001a

Sometimes I catch myself with a very casual mood – Yes, not that often but sometimes it just happens 😉 This time it was Dahriel, who made me go pink and white… I catched him at our platform, where we both have our photo studios and he was wearing pink and white and I remembered, that I have something similar from M.o.w. If you wanna see the details of Dahriel‘s styling just take a look at his post (http://wiccamerlin.de/?p=10635) He just finished one of his new couple poses for *PosESioN* – his amazing pose store – and so he snapped a quick picture of me and him with the new “YAY!” pose 🙂 After I was playing with the snapshot in PS for a while, I decided to make it the opener picture for this post as it turned out so nice 😉

Mow 002

Now I would like to take a closer look on my own styling for this post. Like I said before the basic for the whole outfit are the amazing creations of M.o.w. The “Utopia Jeans” and the “Unisex Armwarmers” in white are from M.o.w. For the top I just added an old tank top from Maitreya. Now for some shoes… according to the sporty casual outfit I tried sneakers and chucks and what not and all I tried did not really satisfy me… I needed some contrast! All of a sudden I came across the “British Lofers” from Redgrave and they made the perfect contrast for the special look 😉 The huge necklace is the “Hannya” one from Mandala, one of my long time favourites. The hair comes from LeLutka and is called “Cheryl”.

Mow 004

The skin is one of the latest releases from Silken Moon. The “Eclipse Lumee” skin is a very light skin, with amazing relistic details, amazing lights and shadows, this special, mystical and very light glow and it went perfect with the darkblonde/pink hair. I just added some makeup out of the new “Eclipse” line to give the eyes a little bit more accent and ready was the perfect look 🙂 The “Lumee” skin tone is perfect for all the ones who like the very light and pale high fashion look.

in-pose - fever

For all the poses – except the very first one – I used a brand new set from Trinity Graves, owner and designer of In-Pose. The new “Fever” set is just as crazy as I am and that is why I liked it so much from the very first moment she sent it to me 😉

I hope you liked my short casual and very pink trip… while I am writing this and look at the pics I cannot even belive that I did this on a free will*giggles*… me casual and then even in white and pink… scandalous 😉 I guess I need to rest in my wonderful couch chair for a bit and calm down, while I think what was in my coffee yesterday morning that I see my self in pink, white and blonde :p

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Winter Dreams

Miamai, EMO-tions, Finesmith Full

This week we had a nother wave of snow in germany and I was grumbling a lot for having the black card of being the one who had to clean the pavement in front of my house from the snow. So I thought I can try to get a better mood for snow, when I make some dreamy winter mood images in SL 😉

I started with the “Carley” gown from Miamai. The long shoulder free gown was perfect as a basic for the little winter beauty. For the even more elegant touch I added the bolero of the new “Riga” outfit from SoliDea FoliEs.

The hair is one of the latest releases from EMO-tions called “Solitude” and for the jewelry I decided to go with the “Nur” set from Finesmith.

The makeup comes from a lady I know for a long time and she came back to SL with her new brand – The Makeup Artist. I am talking about Talyia Tarber. I combined the “Angelic Lace Candy” with the “Black Female Swan” and added my favourite lipstick from Silken Moon, “Wicca Lips Lead”.

For snapping the pics I remembered a place where Natzuka brought me once for a shoot The wonderful ambience of the alirium sim, with the pink colors and the snow just made the illusion of a winder dream complete for me 🙂

Crazy Connection: – M.o.w.’s Style –

Dahriel & Wicca CC

(Models: Dahriel & Wicca; Snapshot & Artwork by Dahriel)

I already posted about that Dahriel and me discovered an amazing cool shop for casual clothing called M.o.w. We both already blogged about that brand in the last days and we thought we maybe could do one together 😉

As we started to do pics together none of us yet had the idea of where this team work would bring us. But after the pictures got seen by a few ppl and we got a quite nice and good response on them we talked more and more doing pics and posts together. Lately a magazine approached us if we would not wanna share a few pics and the style cards for a small column. That was the moment when the “Crazy Connection” was born, because we needed a name for the column and as well for our teamwork 😉

Dahriel as always is way faster as I am with the pictures so he already started the post with the picture and the style card. I asked him if he would mind if, I add some words to it and my edited version of his snapshot.

So for today and the first official post of the “Crazy Connection“, Dahriel and me styled some of the M.o.w. designs that we both got. As I still cannot snap pictures with shadows, Dahriel made the snapshot and send it to me. The picture you can see at the beginning of the post is the version Dahriel edited. I could not resist this time to work a bit in Photoshop as well on that amazing snapshot and at the bottom I would like to share my version as well 😉

We used the “Pleasure” couple pose of PosESioN, that Dahriel made lately and soon will release in his Mainstore as well 😉

I hope you all enjoyed the birth of a wonderful project and give Dahriel a warm welcome to “Fashion Addicted“. I hope that we will have many “Crazy Connection” posts besides Dahriel and my single ones.

The Proud Butterfly

Evil Butterfly Half

Once, a beautiful, shiny and colourful butterfly was flitting from one flower to another. She saw a baby elephant coming down the path. She flew to him and sat on his ear. The elephant asked, “Who are you? Where are you going?”

The butterfly proudly replied, “I am the most beautiful of all the butterflies. You are ugly and fat. Your body is heavy while I am delicate and light. People are jealous of my colourful wings. I can fly anywhere with these wings.”

The elephant calmly said, “I am glad to meet you.”

The butterfly went on, “There is no comparison between us. You have four legs but I have six. You have a trunk and I have something like that too but I use it to suck nectar from the flowers. You cannot do that.” Just then a strong wind blew and the butterfly could not keep her balance. She cried for help as she was flown away in the wind. But the elephant stood firmly on ground and thought, “I can see how pride has a fall.”

Casual Evening Fun ;)

Mow - Wicca & Lovely Full

Not too long ago, my sweet little brother Dahriel sent me to a nice little shop called ‘M.o.w.‘, telling me I would find some super cool casual clothing there. I made my way over and I have to admit he was right. While I was roaming through the store, I had a nice talk with the owner and designer medusa Back. She seems to be a real nice and kind lady and we came across blogging. I got some amazing creations and after sometime I returned home and unpacked all the awesome goodies. While I was styling, Lovely Imed me and asked if she can visit me for some talking. I never can say no to her, she is simply too cute and so I TPed her over and she immediately discovered me styling me new M.o.w. clothing. She remembered that she has the same jacket as I was wearing and put it on. While we kept continue talking I combined the “Open Sweater” with the “Action Capris” as well from M.o.w. As I saw her in the “”Open Sweater” from M.o.w. I had to grab her and drag her in front of my camera with me 😉 The result of a wonderful and fun evening you can see in the pics 😉 If you wanna know the details of Lovely‘s styling you can see her blog (http://eclecticmiwa.wordpress.com/) or you just storm her IM asking her 😉

If you wanna see more of the amazing designs of M.o.w. you better take a look by yourself at the M.o.w. Mainstore 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Paranoid

Natzuka Full

Lately I was talking to Natzuka Milandrovic, a very close friend of mine and we came across the new ‘trend’ of combining fetish elements to high fashion, couture and avantgarde. If I remember back, when I started modeling in SL it was not even to think about and nowadays more and more designer and agencies try to do that. After a while she told me about a casting, that as well requested stylings with fetish parts and she showed me the outfit she made by herself for this casting. I totally fell in love with and after I told her that she was so kind and gave it to me with some poses that are made for this cool outfit.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLG5OoB78vU&w=560&h=315]

As I saw the name of the outfit and the poses I had to grin and immediately I had the song “Paranoid” from Back Sabbath (linked above) stuck in my mind. So as I was styling the outfit, I listened to it most of the time and maybe that’s why the styling became a bit… crazy.

Natzuka Half

The outfit is named “Paranoid” and so is the pose set as well 😉 Nat founded a brand for all her different creations called Flighty Pixels. For this brand she did not set herself any boarders so I definately will keep my eyes on what she will create 😉

The “Paranoid” outfit contains a corset, the panty stripe some lace at the chest and the huge cool head-piece. I only added soe socks, the “Gothic Platforms” from L&B and the “Elle” hair from Zibska. The amazing arm tattoos are made by Talyia Tarber for her new brand The Makeup Artist. The amazing spades that cover the nipples, the front chest and the left eye are part of the “Spades” makeup and tattoo layers from Nuuna’s.

Natzuka Poses

With this interesting and cool outfit from Flighty Pixels Creative and the poses by Flighty Pixel Poses, Nat built a great base for her new brand. She already made quite a few poses besides the “Paranoid” set and I am really curious with what she will come up next 😉
