“There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill winter bastard though dry. The Korova Milkbar was a milk-plus mesto, and you may, O my brothers, have forgotten what these mestos were like, things changing so skorry these days, and everybody very quick to forget, newspapers not being read much neither.”

[- Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange  -]

I do not know how that happened but when I was ready dressed, ,I instantly got a Clockwork Orange feeling. I do love that movie, but didn’t see it for along time. So when I sat down and started to post work those pictures I had to watch it again to get the right feeling for it *grins* That ideas obviously was the reason why I added the bloody bat to my look and put myself in that grunge backyard. I started with the super cool “Nova Overalls” outfit from AsteroidBox, when I realized that they as well do have new shoes that completely fit to that outfit. While I was playing with the huge HUD and all its possibilities (maaany different textures and as well you can hide the shirt!) I discovered the striped version and remembered, that I had gloves that had a stripe option as well from {PSYCHO:Byts}. Certainly I needed some finger bandages as well to get the cool side of the “droogies” look. While I was looking through my L’Emporio Folder for those finger bandages, I saw that they had so cool new releases as well and the hat totally fit into my look – the cool collar as well! If I had planned to mix and match so many of my favorite designers I never would have made it, but this time it fell into place so easily… I have no clue how that happened, but I love it!

As soon as I put on that mega amazing veil from Nefekalum Tattoos (yes – it really is a tattoo with materials!) I did know I have to find those sharp kinda trademark lashes, which Alex had on just one eye in the movie – I found that at Shiny Stuffs. sadly I could not apply it just to one eye, like it originally was on the left eye only.

It didn’t happen for a long time that the imagination for a picture or story came so fast to my mind, after putting on just the first 2 or 3 items and I really enjoyed my journey in the past with that movie again. I have to say it again seemed very up-to-date to our times at the moment if you get the essence of that movie – that felt kinda scary, but I do believe in the human race to not make the future as dark again as it was in the past!

Revenge? – Together!

TUNES

Like Leo in The Revenant
Abel in that Bible bit
Revenge is sweet, isn’t it?
I really, really hope for it
I know that it won’t fix a thing
A song like this that I could sing for you
All the feels you make me do
A nightmare fucking coming true
I’m daydreaming
Let me count the ways
How I’ll get you, or how I’ll make you pay
Babe, I’m hurting and now you’ll feel the same

That’s my plan, that’s my plan, that’s my plan

We could do revenge, revenge, revenge, revenge
Together, together, together
We could take revenge, revenge, revenge
Revenge is sweet

Again I am coming to you with an amazing release from Midnight Order. The event just passed its half time celebrations and there are some cool new items available there. Until the 20th of February you can get all those amazing designs, gifts and news.

Today I would like to draw your attention on the release of AsteroidBox. The ultra awesome “Sabien” Outfit is their release for the Midnight Order event. It is a full outfit, coming in one piece – pants, corset, blouse and the amazing detailed chest ruffles, held by that beautiful gem. With the HUD you get a lot of different colors to choose from. And with that already being more than just cool, you even get a bloody and a clean version for all colors and parts. I always adored the mesh and texture skills of Leith – owner and designer of AsteroidBox – and with this ensemble made for male and female he again outdid himself. A definite highlight is the wonderful waist corset with the amazing detailed decor – not to mention the whole outfit is a total highlight anyway *winks*

Since I have a fable for mix and match looks,  I added the cool “KnottArms” made by the Eclipse Art Studio. I know I already blogged about them, but they are so awesome, come in so many colors and two different fabrics, there’s is a lot of more room for showcasing them 😉 They can be found in a gacha machine at the main store by now.

For the shoes and that outfit you usually would think about some Victorian looking boots, but when I saw the “*Refill*” boots – now as well available for as a female version – I could not resist to add them to my outfit and they gave the whole look a neat little, mean twist. I really love to add opposites that turn the whole look again a slight little bit!

As already mentioned, the “Sabien Outfit” as well has male body versions available, which brought me to the idea I could do a cool couple shoot with Redclaw Inshan my RL/SL partner. Usually he tries to avoid shoots, as he hates to redress and style (or being styled by me, saying what to add and loose *grins*), but when I showed him that outfit he was all in for it. He decided to go for the bloody version of the outfit and as well added some cool boots from L’Emporio – can you tell I am addicted to their shoes and not only to the shoes! The only thing I rarely can change is his hair – he loves his “Dext” hair from A&Y, but for this picture it was totally fine for me and … it is kinda his trademark so I didn’t start an argument about it.

Some of the decor used for this pictures you as well can find at the Midnight Order. The amazing fountain, which you can see behind us was made by [ContraptioN] and the little mechanical heart (having a holding pose in it too, which we didn’t use for this picture) comes from Reliquary (!R!).

I hope I am able to do more pictures with friends and family soon. I really do enjoy them a lot, even if they are usually more work or take more time, as I am not that used to it as if I snap just myself 😉

What a week… don’t you hate that, if things go like 180 degrees the other way as you planned it? I am one of those, who like to at least plan a week ahead, what I do have to do, what I want to do and what I am supposed to do. I usually hardly can focus on things and I keep forgetting things very quickly – my friends know that and thank god they are not too mad with me usually *snickers* – and that is why I usually at least make a rough draft on a piece of paper or my calendar for each week.

Corona and the closing of the schools already messes that up weekly and if something else comes across, it can instantly become a disaster. That is what happened the past week. Blessedly it did all calm down and I finally could manage to get all done.

That gives me the time to post today. I know the Puppet Show gacha isn’t a new release from Moon Amore, but sometimes things need time until the “kiss me” and I know what I want to do with them 😉 I do enjoy the changeover from new releases, things I got because I liked them, but didn’t have the right inspiration and all time favorites. Many tried to tell me a blog always has to be up to date and you only can use things once – I completely disagree with that. My blog is my personal sandbox and I can play the way I like to play 😉 Certainly I will have new releases which I found in stores and on events, or amazing designs I got from my incredible, awesome sponsors, but as well there are times where I just can fool around with things out of my inventory and create pictures just the way I feel in that very moment 😉

Exactly that happened a few days ago with the Puppet Show gacha from Moon Amore and I really enjoyed playing with it as you can see ♥

“The deal was I wouldn’t kill you. I reckon you got a bargain, don’t you?”

Again I do have some amazing designs released at the Necrotize event! As mentioned before Necrotize is an event run by Second Life Syndicate. But who is Second Life Syndicate? The 3 genius minds behind that are Ylva Korhonen, Akira Voorhees and Helena Stringer – certainly they do have an amazing team and people that collaborate with them, but those 3 are the heads behind events like “Engine Room”and “Necrotize” and many more. Second Life Syndicate is not just only an event group, they are as well having a huge website where they provide latest news from the grid like sales, other popular events, freebies and group gifts from so many different stores. What I do like a lot is that they do have a lot of galleries, which make it easy to look through before you have to TP around yourself – I know… sometimes I am lazy, but I really enjoy that! You really should set a book mark for https://secondlifesyndicate.com/ to be informed and not miss out on any awesome deals!

Now lets take a closer look at today’s style with all those amazing new releases at Necrotize…

The amazing outfit was made by AsteroidBox. It already looked amazing on the vendor, but when I unpacked it I found – besides the color HUD – a super cool style HUD! What a genuine idea to give the possibility of having the lower pants hide-able for higher boots or the arms parts so that you can add armor or, like I did, the incredible “Dark Night Arms” from DRD! Speaking of those arms… they do come in so many different colors and you even have some bloody ones there, too!

What as well caught my eye when I saw it, was the amazing jawbone cover from Reliquary. A metal lower jaw with so many amazing details… simply awesome – you even have some metal teeth! The scary face tattoo was made by Rainbow Sundae and it perfectly matches with the body tattoo coming from Persephone – both Necrotize exclusives as well. You still have time to go over and look at that amazing venue, built by Walton F. Wainwright, owner and designer of ContraptioN. It did remind me of a combination of the Alien movies and some of the good old H.R. Giger designs, which cartainly became popular as well with the Alien movies again. If I can find a time when the event isn’t that crowded, I really would like to just snap some pictures there, too!

Bounty Hunter

Despite knowing the journey and where it leads, I embrace it, and I welcome every moment of it.

[Arrival 2016]

I LOVE when “accidents” happen while I am setting up my shoot… if they are “positive”!

Today it was a lightning surprise, which started with a mistake of moving light prims around. I was playing again with some Mainframe goodies today. I thought of something different, something what I not set did with all the amazing cyber and sci-fi designs I got there. I have no idea what exactly it was that brought me to this idea, but probably I watched too much Star Wars lately. I saw the “Cyberdoll Helmet” from Fika and instantly had the vision of Boba Fett, the bounty hunter.

I wanted a strong, robotic female version of a bounty hunter and her hideout on a dark, desert planet. With the super cool “Wreck Hideout” from 22769 I had the perfect scenery to set up my shoot for my vision.

While I was playing with lights, again something happened what I usually hate like hell… I tried to move a set of lights and my camera flipped while editing and the lights ended up “somewhere” behind me. When I reset my camera and wanted to try again I realized, it does look fantastic! Those kinda of accidents I really do love, it just makes it harder to reproduce it if you want to shoot more than one picture and have the lights attached *frowns*. Then they keep moving with every new pose and you hardly get the same result – it took a while*giggles* It is a strange habit to attach lights when you can rezz them as well, but for what ever strange reason I get different results wearing them instead of rezzing them. The Mainframe event only lasts till the 13th of august so if you want to get some of those extremely awesome goodies – you just have  few more days!

The last Key… Do you dare?

[Ed Warren]

Scary moments and moods! Again it was time for some creepy and horror inspired pictures *snickers*

This time it was the cool face tattoo from CURELESS[+] and the uber cool backdrop from CerberusXing that inspired me to do something dark and wicked. The “Crucifix Corridor” backdrop reminded me about a scene of the movie “The Nun” which lead me to 2 or my favorite horror movie series – Insidious and Conjuring with all its sequels and prequels. I never could decide which ones I loved more and so a little bot of all of them went into todays pictures.

You cannot make a picture with just a back drop and some face modifications, I thought and tried to put together a look that would work with what I wanted to showcase. Instantly the super awesome “Morgane Ribbon Heels” from [Gos] came to my mind. The were released for this month round of FaMESHed and I instantly fell in love with the way the ribbons reached down till the tip of the pumps. As always you get a wide range of colors with the HUD and as well the possibility to color the show and the ribbons, plus a few other details separately. I tried to show you a few possibilities above, but certainly you get way more than you can see up there 😉

For my outfit I chose and outfit I saw at the last round of ROMP, made by AsteroidBox and combined with the cool bracers from CerberusXing made the perfect look but still it looked a little bit too ‘cute’ for what I was looking for. With the cool horns from E.V.E and the evil hair from no.match I finally was satisfied with my look for what I had in mind. For the poses, always when I want to do something creepy and unusual, I went with the poses from Poseidon. I already wrote about them a couple of times, but I just cannot stop telling how awesome they are if you are looking for something that shows some action, or motions or something out of the mainstream looking.

I hope you enjoyed my little key keeper as much as I did and I will no go and watch some of the mentioned movies… maybe to get some more ideas for dark fantasy inspired pictures *wicked grin*

What now?!?

“Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do
Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go…”
[David Bowie]

Yes, I know… Cyberpunk Fair is over, but it seems I am not yet done with my sci-fi moods :p

Today it is less cyberpunk that actual real sci-fi I guess, but that doesn’t matter – I love both anyways 🙂

Today I was going to try something in a space capsule, like I would be on a mission to a new planet. I guess I watched too much movies like “Elysium, Interstellar, The Martian or my absolute favourite one – Serenity including the series of Firefly” again, which dragged me in such a mood. But that was cool, as I anyways wanted to showcase the new “THX Sci-Fi Set 1” from Ex Machina. The whole set contains console, cannister, crate and lamp… the lamp I will have to add into another post, as it did not look right for my picture of a space capsules cargo bay and that was what I was going for.

I do not know what it is, that attracts me so much about futuristic thoughts – Maybe it is the desire to know what will come? Maybe it is the desire to see something new? Maybe it is just something very human that you start thinking where you could go if the human race finally destroyed the earth completely? I have no idea, but I do enjoy movies and stories about that, as well I like to play with those thoughts in Second Life.

The cool backdrop was made by The Bearded Guy for a gacha set and I guess it was the rare piece of that gacha. I loved the way how you can look out the back window and see another planet. That gave such a cool cargo bay feeling that the “THX Sci-Fi Set 1” did fit on so perfect. The idea behind the scenes was, that I was on a mission and something went wrong and I tried to figure out what to do next, to not screw up completely. That as well gave me a brief idea for my pose choices.

For my outfit I chose some parts that I got at the CyberPunk  Fair from Flair for Events, which was ending not too long ago, but I think most of the creators will have their items in their main stores by now.

A few of you asked me, why I am wearing the same makeup for a few posts now already… that has  simple reason. I do have an everyday look where I do use an eyeshadow from Zibska and a natural lipstick from alaskametro<3 and for a casual look, or even a mechanics look I would feel weird wearing heavy makeups. There is ties where you just do not need makeup, even if your inventory is full of it and you got already more than you ever can use *snickers*

Another reason is, that I sometimes do want to show the heads more pure than covered in tons of makeup, to show that they are still mega versatile even without makeups and fancy face paints 😉 Like today, I am wearing the “Simone” head from LeLutka again – my everyday “Wicca Face” head. Today I wanted her to have a more bad girl, cool chick with the focus on the face it self and on the piercings. Plus the glasses would have covered anyways most of the eyeshadow.

I hope you enjoyed my little Sci-Fi mood today – Now I have to jump back into my GoT mood for my next post 😉 That is one of the nice things about Second Life… you can change looks, times and genres in like seconds!

Silent Crying

“The most painful tears we cried, were the tears we cried in silence…”

When was the last time you cried in silence?

Usually the emotions and the pain are way deeper if you cry in silence, than if you let people see it. But why we are crying in silence?

Maybe because we think no one would anyways understand why or what we are crying about, so we feel the need to hide it to not make things worse or complicated with other people involved?

Maybe we do not want to look weak and fragile and hide it, to not give people the idea we are an easy prey?

Maybe we do not want to worry the people, which are close and dear to us with issues and thoughts that might not even be real problems?

Maybe we do not have a reason that can be spoken out loud, as we do not have the words about the emotions that we are going through?

Maybe someone (accidentally) disappointed and hurt us so much and we do not wanna risk our future with that person and just have to play nice to not ruin everything?

Maybe we are scared that people won’t believe us or believe the reason we do cry?

There is so many reasons why we do it and each one must be very deep and painful, if we try to hide our emotions and feelings towards other people. The tears we cry won’t be seen by anyone. No one will come and put arms around you, because no one thinks you need support. Silent tears are one example of so many fights we have with ourselves. Even if no one can see them, after we released the tears and let them flow, we usually feel better and sometimes we even question our tears afterwards and then we are happy nobody did see them and we do not have to explain.

Do not be afraid to cry if your best friend is with you. Your best friend will understand, not feel bothered, not judge your strength in that moment, not question the reason for your tears, believe in every reason and maybe even put the arms around you and hold you silently until you feel better.

I am very grateful I have such a person in my life ♥

Todays pictures were the hardest for along time… do you know the feeling, when you have a complete vision of a picture in mind and then you run around like mad and can’t find what you were looking for? So it was today with my set. I had something in mind in a light, nearly purely white hallway with flying sheer curtains. I looked on MP and as well in world and I found a few things that were close, but not what I was looking for. Then I was trying one of the awesome creations from Exposeur, which I anyways love for a long time. I fell in love with the poses, what made me dump the idea of light and white and rethink my picture idea. So I ended up building something with the “Girl At The Window” pose prop from Exposeur and the “Flying Curtains” from Kalopsia.

The style of today was as well a little special as well. I wanted to do a post about the new “Lady G Pumps” from [Gos].

“What kind of Lady will you be today? Let Lady G help you decide. Out now at FaMESHed, Lady G is a classic high platform pump that is anything but basic. Four shoes in one, choose between a sky high stiletto or block heel and a open foot or Mary Jane strap.

Lady G is available in 3 colour HUDs – Boutique, Blueberry, and Metallics – each sold separately or as a collection. The Boutique HUD includes 21 current, in-season colours perfect for any fashionista, the Blueberry HUD includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry, and the Metallics HUD include 7 metallics which will have your feet shining. Each HUD also includes 5 sole, 2 metal, 3 lining options and controls heel and strap wear options. 56 colors in all!” [Gospel Voom]

First I went for the typical casual elegant look, which usually is expected for pumps like that. If you imagine pumps, what style you imagine on the first thought? Casual elegant, lingerie or formal/elegant. When I was fully styled, I looked at me and thought… “Nope, that is not you!” and took off everything but the pumps. But now what else…? Usually if I get stuck with ideas I dive into my accessories folder and see what I find there to kick in some creativity :p

The first thing I tried was the “Mouth Silencer” from AsteroidBox. As a German I was curious what a mouth silencer woud be. When I unpacked it and put it on, the first look – I have to admit that – was kinda terrifying. It looked very harsh and martial and with the blood applier that comes with it – I had to swallow a few times before my curiosity won and I thought that this could be an interesting challenge. So I looked at me, standing there in pumps and that bloody iron piece on my mouth. Usual lingerie would be too nice and I anyways did not wanna go for that. Pure fetish would be too obvious too now with that special accessory. Maybe a mixture would do it!

I found the “Sex Vixen Princess” outfit from Dirty Princess, which made the perfect combo of cute and strong with the little ruffles on the lingerie and as well the strong leather harness on top of it. To drag it back a little bit I added the ripped stockings to get a more gothic touch in it and I loved the contrast of the elegant pumps and the ripped nylons 😉 Needless to say it was luck that the nylons were just as high to meet the garters of the outfit, but since .:Avanti:. has so many different heights for their stockings I did know I would find one that matches :p

Certainly a tattoo could not be missing in that look and what else than one of the [White Widow] tattoos could work better to bring the sweetness back again as well. The “It” tattoo with the cute roses just perfectly did what I expected from it. I did say more than once already, that I adore the texture skills Julie Hastings has and I would give my right arm for it to know, how she archives it to have all of her tattoos so needled-sharp on the mesh bodies 😉

Even if the pictures today turned out completely different than I first thought, the emotions and feelings I wanted to transport with them still remained the same. It was a great experience for myself to start with a mouth piece and heels and I hope there will me many more like those in the future 🙂

Temptation in Black & Red

Today I have some amazing news from *ROMP* for you!

It was about time for a black & red styling I guess and with the new items from ROMP it was just perfect timing 😉

To me this round of ROMP is a very exciting one as we are allowed to participate for the first time with our store as well. I will probably do a post of our design as well but for now I would like to showcase some of the super awesome items I found there.

What caught my eyes as soon as I saw the vendor picture, was the amazing “Carmen” coat made by [sys]. The knee long open coat is decorated with an amazing fur looking fabric. You have 2 different versions available in each pack for the fur part. It comes fitted for all popular mesh bodies.

The amazing, delicate lingerie I am wearing underneath, comes from chocolate atelier (::c.A::). Chocolate Atelier usually provides the lingerie as system body layers, tattoo layers as well as appliers for Slink, Maitreya and Omega. For this post I used the “Nadia” lingerie in black but you can purchase it as well in red or white.

For the stockings I chose one of my favourite brands… AviCandy. They are always very well made without any seams – except the wanted ones in the back – and just look so realistic with their wonderful filigree lace decoration at the upper thighs. AviCandy provide for their nylons usually 2 different versions – one more opaque and one sheer one.

For the shoes I used the “Parrasana” heels from Glamistry. They might not be brand new but still brand hot with their special heel :p.

Let’s take a closer look at the strong makeup I chose for today’s look. Normally I am a fan of either bold eyes OR lips and rarely use both but the look kinda called for a more dramatic looking makeup.

The stunning, dark smokey eyes were made by Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska. I am using the m aitreya applier of the “Selise” HUD. Zibska is definitely a must go for the new “Simone” bento head from LeLutka. Zibska offers a wide range of incredible makeup designs for that head, that just fits amazing. You will not only find a LeLutka applier HUD in the pack, there also is an Omega, Catwa or TMP one as well plus still all the system layer tattoos.

The great, deep and dark lipstick is one of the newest releases from je suis. Yes you heard right – Julia Merosi, owner and designer of je suis, is back! And she already made stunning new things including the “LeLutka Lips 006”, which she released at the actual round of the Chapter 4. The perfectly fit the “Simone” head and you can even play with the gloss and the blending to get the perfect result for your look.

For the set I mainly wanted to play with projectors and lights in different colors (thanks to Leah for teaching me some more about self made projectors!).

As a basic furniture I put down the new “Neo Victorian Sofa”, that you can get at ROMP as well made by 22769. It comes in different colors and as PG or adult version – for today’s post I just went with the black PG version, as I anyways wanted to play with other poses, even if the sofa has great inbuilt animations that you can play with via a touch menu. The curtains, that I used for the golden accents are as well made by 22769.

ROMP has some great goodies this round so it is definitely worth a visit 😉
