Ashes to Ashes – A Tribute to David Bowie

Zen 1a

On the 10th of January 2016, the world lost one of the most genuine and influential musician of the newer music history.

David Bowie

As a musician myself I adored David Bowie since I was 14. His most popular successes he had in the 70s and 80s but he constantly worked on his music and released constantly new albums and was an actor in many movies between 1973 and 2009.

In the beginning of his music career he was called an Avant Garde artist, as his music, lyrics and as well his visual presentations were way apart from the standard back then. Many people called him a punk or rebel back then. He changed his image in the beginning to the 80s more towards the standard pop music image – at least in his visual appearance. His music never lost the incredible stand out factor and anyways what kind of music he created – or with who – it had his very own signature. It always felt like he was one step ahead of the standard 🙂

He left huge footprints at the music world and I am not sure if they ever can be filled… or if they even should be filled… ?

Ashes to Ashes

Do you remember a guy that’s been
In such an early song
I’ve heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don’t say it’s true

They got a message from the Action Man
“I’m happy, hope you’re happy too
I’ve loved all I’ve needed to love
Sordid details following”

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain’t got no money and I ain’t got no hair
But I’m hoping to kick but the planet it’s glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I’ll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I’m stuck with a valuable friend
“I’m happy, hope you’re happy too”
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue,
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said to get things done
You’d better not mess with Major Tom

[David Bowie]

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Our first rigged, original Clothing Piece!

Zoomy Vest close

Today I have a very special reason for my post… a very special vest for a very special friend!

Many of you might know we are doing original mesh accessories for quite some time now but we never had a rigged clothing part yet… until now 🙂

I am very happy that I can announce we are now able to even make rigged original clothing!

What makes it even more special for me is that our first design was made for a very special Lady!

Zoomy Bluebird, our reigning Miss CoC 2015.

And even that contest is the reason for our new “Zoomy Vest”.

It was not even long time planned, that we make something for Zoomy. We were working on the national costume for Miss SL Poland 2015 (yes, that one will be showcased soon too I just need to finish the pics :p) when Zoomy was in my IMs and told me she was searching for a cropped vest for one of her finale stylings. She said she looked already for quite some time and could not find what she wanted or the vest was not cooperating with the rest of her styling. The more we talked the more I got an idea, but I did not dare to ask her about as I did not wanna bother or obrude her too  much. Then she all of sudden said she never would dare to ask me to make one, as she would know I would be busy with the gown anyways. You cannot imagine my smile in that moment… Zoomy was always a very dear friend to me over time, a crazy sister in mind and someone who always understood my weirdness. So you can imagine which honor it would be to create a piece for such an amazing woman!

So I told her that I would LOVE to design something for her, but that I have to ask Veo and Red as well. We are a team in creating and already were working on other designs so I could not decide that on my own. I was very nervous what Veo would say about it though.

Next day as soon as I saw him, I jumped on him, making super puppy eyes and told him about the idea for Zoomy’s cropped vest. I scribbled my idea on a piece of paper and showed him and he just nodded and said “Oh yeah we can do that”.

 You can imagine, it did not too even one second to jump back in Zoomy’s IM and tell her the good news.

With her special style, the vest had to be in a certain look to mactch the rest of the styling.

So while i was finishing the gown for JJ, Veo worked on the vest and not too much later I got my favourite IM from him that said “I guess I am done!”

When he uploaded it and showed it to me I had goosebumps… that was exactly what I had in mind and it was fully rigged and everything!

The “ZoomyVest” was born!

I grabbed it and immediately went to Photoshop to make the textures. Like you can see the styling was extremely colorful and wild so the vest had to match in there. I made 3 different textures and as it ould have been fate one even was close to the pants, which I never saw before 😉

Wicca's Wardrobe - Zoomy Vest (all)

Besides the 3 colors for Zoomy I already made some more, because I totally fell in love with that vest :p.

So we just had to get Zoomy to kinda custom tailor the vest onto her body with the dress under it, that again was a huge fun time when we were all standing on the platform and uploaded a bunch of different sizes until we had got it right ;). Somehow it felt like a real fitting for a super model*giggles*

 It was a very special moment for me and as well for us all at Wicca’s Wardrobe. When Zoomy then, a few days later even won the Miss CoC 2015, you can imagine how much we were excited and happy.

And now I am even more happy, that I may announce that the “Zoomy Vest” now is in store in 8 different textures to match as many different looks s you can imagine from casual to steampunk and even to the zoomylishious new style trend KAWA Couture!

Asian Valentine? A Special Way to Celebrate a Special Day!

Rfyre Asian Valentine 001

Valentine is close and we all think about a special way to say thank you to people, who are special to us, people we love. We always think about something very special for our beloved ones to surprise them and show them how much we love them. RFyre comes out with 2 very special outfits for Valentine’s Day.

Why not surprise your boyfriend with a very special look?

The “Psyche Formal” dress with all the amazing asian textures and colors really makes a point in being special I guess 😉 . The body part is mesh made what totally accents the shape and for the leg parts you have a 2 part long, sheer skirt that covers the outside of the legs. The amazing overknee boots in red as well are part of the “Psyche Formal” dress. The huge, flexible back train gives the whole ensemble a very elegant touch. The neck and shoulders are decorated with an amazing high collar and originally you as well get an awesome red/golden collar.

Rfyre Asian Valentine 002

For the jewelry I decided to wear a special set from EMO-tions. Made for the Fantasy Gacha. The “Elbensoul” necklace and earrings in golden/black are one of the rare items of the EMO-tions gacha goodies. The filigree metals paired with the amazing black gemstones are just an amazing accessory for every elegant and special styling.

Rfyre Asian Valentine 003

For a bit later in the evening RFyre had an amazing idea as well in a lightly asian style. The playful looking “Psyche” outfit is the right choice for the time when you are back hom from a romantic dinner or event and just want to spend some private time. The sweet outfit is available in red and noir so whatever color you choose to seduce your boyfriend you will surprise him with a wonderful mesh corset, mesh bra and this awesome, cute panties with the ruffles at the back. The over knee boots and the amazing stockings wich are held by sexy garters as well are part of the outfit. For the bra you have 2 options to choose. Either you wanna go totally black like the corset, or with the sweet ornaments you can see on the pictures of my post.

With those 2 outfits I am ready for Valentine 🙂 Are you too?

Out of the Darkness

How does it feel when your little world’s broken
Everything’s splattered with dirt
Too many words full of poison I’ve spoken
Now you are finally hurt
Nobody came from the outside to touch us
The enemy came from within
He came with his fear and with fear he did seize me
Tell me now where to begin

Violator Side

Welcome again to my hour of darkness
I put a spoke in my wheel
I was the fool who just gave it away
But this was the way I did feel

Violator Double

I couldn’t help but I
I’ll set it straight
No need to hide behind doubts
And I’m begging you please
Won’t you hear me I’m calling, so

Violator HairTake me out of this darkness
And right back into the light
Show me how can I get back to you

Welcome again to this hour of darkness
The shadows are finally back
All of my nightmares are waltzing Mathilda
Better I turn on the light

LeeZu - Half

One of LeeZu‘s latest releases is a wonderful mesh combination of a dress and boots and as well the popular “Nif Nif” gloves are now available in mesh.

The new “Kaya Gown” is a wonderful mixture of a long and short dress to the same time. For the left leg you have a huge slit that shows off the whole sexy leg and on the right side the skirt goes down to the ankle.

LeeZu - Full

The “Kaya Gown” comes in many different colors and I chose the black version for this post, because I liked the combination of black, red and the golden ornaments so much. The super sexy overknee boots repeat the golden ornaments on the leg and as well at the heels!

LeeZu - Shoes

The inner of the skit brings back the red color that we see under the chest. Even the upper end of the boots carry the same color and little buckle that we saw on the gown under the chest. The “Nif Nif” gloves make a wonderful shape for the hands. The option to have hands and feet made with mesh adds a lot mor possibilities for the creators and as well makes them so much more realistic 🙂 To finish my asian touch idea, I chose the “Warrior” hair from epoque with the 2 crossed sticks behind the bun. The huge necklace from Swallowtail I have for a very long time and by searching for an appropriate one it fell into my hands again 😉

To see more of the latest LeeZu releases you can take  a look at the LeeZu Mainstore and see for yourself 😉
