Bird of Paradise – News at Silken Moon

Silken Moon - Simone 001

A new skin arrived on the grid! Silken Moon released a brand new skin. “Simone” is the perfect skin for all who wish to keep their young look. The skin is very detailed what you will see if you take a demo and look at the body. It is made very realistic looking. Every pixel was placed with love and thoughts. The high lights are incredible awesome set. For example the collar bones are wonderfully accented, to get the imagination of a well shaped and beautiful body. “Simone” comes in 8 new and different skin tones. If you purchase one of the “Simone” skins you get a lot of additional extras with it. Each skin has 2 cleavage options, an eyebrow shaper, Slink hand and feet applier HUDs for all 8 tones and as well an open and a closed lips option with matching prim teeth for the perfect smile πŸ˜‰ . Besides the natural tinted eyebrows you get some real crazy coloured eyebrows like green or pink and you get one tintable option to make it any color you like. For some it might also be interesting that Malicia Python, mother and creator of “Simone” and owner of Silken Moon, offers a free service for Lola appliers as well.

The makeup which I added on “Simone” as well comes from Silken Moon. The “Autumn Eyes” in gold so repeated the lines of the amazing clothing. The whole set of the “Autumn Eyes” contain wonderful dark and warm colors, wich are perfectly for the actual season. Usually I do not wear any eyebrows anymore but with the cool options of the “Simone” skin I could not resist to add some green eyebrows that went with the outfit so well πŸ˜‰ . The lipstick is one of the new “Simone Lips” in lavender.

Silken Moon - Simone 002

But Malicia did not only release a new skin… she as well made some amazing mesh clothing like the “Paradox” outfit. The “Paradox” vest and pants in the peacock version caught my attention as i never saw such a rich textured outfit in so many different colors that go so well together πŸ˜‰ Usually I am more the black type, but with the beautiful pattern of the pants and the amazing texture of the vest it was just a ‘must have’ for me. There is way more variations of the “Paradox outfit at Silken Moon and you can combine, mix and match all of them with each other. The dark teal, green texture goes along so well with the ‘cool pale canvas’ version of “Simone and I could not resist even red hair to all the colors and wild makeup combination πŸ˜‰ .

To add even more color and repeat the orange tone of the hair and the “Paradox” vest, I decided to wear the new “Kaya” set from Lazuri. With the amazing menu that does let you recolor nearly every little part of the set it was easy to set the gems to orange and get some gold and wooden look for the metals.

The poses are from the latest release from Corpus. The “Lounge Series 001” are a full set of amazing sits. But we all know Corpus for unusual and amazing editorial poses and so the new set is not just a bunch of simple and usual sit. You have half laying poses like i used on the first picture and as well some ground sits in it. A real must have for every blogger and photographer!

And there is me the Bird of Paradise, unbelievable but trueΒ  in strong and bright colors πŸ˜‰

New Late Autumn Look at GizzA

GizzA - Woolen 001

Autumn gets colder and colder and the winter is right before us. I still try to tell myself it is late autumn but if I look outside… I get shown different*sighs* And even if I turn up the heat in my apartment… I afraid, I will not escape the winter outside. To bring back a bit of warmer feelings I could not resist to try the new “Woolen Series” and to get the warmer type of colors I went to one of my favourite places to snap the pictures – at the Looking Glass sim.

GizzA - Woolen 002

The “Knitted Crop Top” might let me freeze a little but the style of it lets me suffer*grins*. The top is mesh made and with the 2 belts round the waist and right under the dress it has a very sexy look. The “Tartan Mini Skirt” really is something I would wear RL as well. I like the pattern and the combination of the soft warm colors with a touch of red that goes perfectly with the “Knitted Crop Top”. I added the black version of the “Epaulette Set”. This accessoriy is out of the gacha at GizzA and it has many other amazing colors as well. The super cool mesh boots are my long time favourites of LeeZu. The “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” are the perfect addition to cover most of the legs so I will at least have warm feet πŸ˜‰ .

The “Woolen Series” are now available in different colors at the GizzA Mainstore.

The lipstick is one of the newest releases from Silken Moon. The “Luna Lips Bonfire” have the perfect red tone to match the whole look. The fingernails are colored with one of the Slink enhancer HUD’s from Nailed It.

For the poses I used some of my own poses out of several sets. All of them you can buy single or in a fatpack at my new Mainstore at the Crazy Connection.

News at Mea Culpa – Beyond Oz

Mea Culpa - Beyond Oz 001

Today I would like to showcase the latest release from Mea Culpa. After the amazing pret a porter line, Tatanka Kaligawa, owner and designer of Mea Culpa now again released a wonderful avant-garde dress again.

Mea Culpa - Beyond Oz 002

The “Beyond Oz” has a mesh made basic, wich is wonderfully textured with a black fabric that wears amazing silver ornaments. The hips are decorated with huge ruffles on each side and for the shoulder you have a huge geometric looking attachment. The shape and style of this shoulder attachment is repeated in 2 awesome huge bracelets.

What caught my attention was the big and cool head piece with the jewelry. The headpiece looks like a huge black hair bun wich again captures the look and style of the shoulder part and the bracelets. Connected to that bun, you have a wonderful flexible attachment in the same texture as the dress.

The necklace and the head jewelry are as well part of the outfit. The black pearls complete the “Beyond Oz” dress perfectly and give it a beautiful and elegant touch. Since the head jewelry and the necklace are single parts you can wear them to any other styling as well πŸ˜‰ .

The cool matching makeup comes from Silken Moon. The “Kabuki” gives the styling an even more avant-garde look and it should not miss in a fashionista’s wardrobe.

AD Creations Halo 001

The wonderful outfit that I would like to showcase today comes from [AD] Creations. Aliza Karu, owner and genius designer of [AD] Creations is well known for her extraordinary and unique designs. As she says by herself, all of her designs are made out of a mood. So basically if you wear one of her wonderful creations, you wear one of her moods πŸ˜‰ . She always adds a special edge to her outfits like she did with the “Halo” dress. This dress can be used to create so many different looks from elegant to fierce or extravagant. The corset has an open front and the shoulders are free. For the skirt we have a huge balloon looking shape, wich ends in a wonderful lace part.

AD Creations Halo 002

At the hips you have the same amazing lace and the collar as well is part of the outfit. What caught my attention was the incredible headpiece. The crow head paired with that wonderful and delicate lace veil – simply stunning.

The cool snake that I am wearing over my shoulders again is the gacha “Kaa” mesh snake from deviousMind.

The beautiful jewelry comes from Lazuri. The “Eda” set is one of my favourites from Lazuri. With the huge range of possibilities this set really can be worn to nearly every look. You are able to color the metals and stones with a pop-up menu and you can choose between 3 different styles with the same menu as well.

The super cool tattoo is from one of my favourite tattoo and makeup stores. White Widow, done by the incredible Julie Hastings. The “Lady Killers” tattoo comes in 2 different versions, one normal and one low. Julie even thought about the new Slink mesh hands and made her tattoo end before it collides at the ankles.

The amazing hair is made by EMO-tions. The “Yeriak” hairstyle is a wonderful and elegant up do with pearls that just matches amazing to my today’s styling.

The skin is my custom made Wicca skin in the new ‘lumee lunette’ tone. I fell in love with that new tone, because it gives my face such an amazing filigree porcelain look. To make it easy to match the slink hands and feet Silken Moon offers the Slink enhancement HUD to nearly every of their skins.

News at Wicca’s Wardrobe!!! – The “Show Off” Set

WM - Poses Show Off Set

And again I did it :p .Β A new pose set has arrived at Wicca’s Wardrobe. The new “Show Off” set did grow out of a styling with the awesome “Au Revoir Sade” coat from LeeZu. I wanted to have some poses who have a smart and sexy touch for this styling. The focus for this poses were on the hips and legs since they can be seen. Certainly you can use those poses for every other styling with or without coats as well πŸ™‚ .

WM - Poses Show Off Set - Fatpack

As usual all of the poses have smooth transitions so you can use them as runway poses or modeling poses as well besides just making pictures with them. The poses are sold single via the pose stands in my store and as fatpacks out of the boxes that are hanging on the wall. I hope you like them and try them out in my new store at Crazy Connection πŸ™‚ at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/27/82/22

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 11/16/2013 – A little bit of Steampunk

Silken Moon-Shi 002

Steampunk – One of my favourite styling themes. I love the smooth and brownish colors and the idea of all the technical and mechanical stuff.

For todays look I started with the new “Paradox Pants” from Silken Moon. Malicia Python, wich we all know for her incredible amazing skins, again started to make some clothing. The “Paradox Pants” were released together with a matching jacket, but for this post I wanted to showcase the pants first, as they are really awesome for mix and matching.

Silken Moon-Shi 001

For my today’s styling I chose the ‘Nexus’ version of the “Paradox Pants”. Silken Moon made a lot of other patterns and fabrics for the beautiful mesh pants. The top I picked from Leezu. It is part of one of the Noir outfits called “Efraims Daughter”. I always like the brown fabric of the corset and the ripped part that covers the chest. The huge neck part I found at Shi. Shi is a store where I find myself lately more often. They seem to make some neat accessories and items that you cannot find all over the grid. The “Hesed” neck warmer, is one of those. This huge accessory is a perfect addition for my todays look. The used look and the warm colors of the ‘old book’ version perfectly went with the pants and the top. The shoes are one of my favourites from J’s. The “Studded Long Boots” are cool flat mesh shoes that can be worn in so many different styles and for the steam punk I liked the studds that brought back the metal parts of the neck warmer. Speaking of warmers, the arm warmers are from Shi as well. Shi released amazing armwarmers with mesh hands and fingers right attached to them. With a simple HUD you can choose the ring style and as well you can match the hands to your skin relatively easy. And now i will explore this amazing sim that I found for my pictures πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe: ” Girls just wanna have fun”

LeeZu-GizzA-Lazuri 001Pink & Purple!!! Yes, I took my medicals for my pink allergy before I did the styling*grins*

Usually I try to avoid pink and purple like hell bu sometimes I am in a 80’s mood and back then pink and purple were some of the dominating colors.

The “Metropolis” mesh dress from LeeZu was the base for this in the end colorful look. The sexy short dress, wich only has straps over the shoulders is amazing textured with wonderful lights and shadows looks amazing realistic.

LeeZu-GizzA-Lazuri 002

The jacket comes from GizzA. The “Biker Jacket” always was something I had on my focus and as I saw the pink version discounted to 50%, I just could not resist and the pink & black idea was born. I am a fan of overknee boots since in forever and the “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” from LeeZu are a long time favourite of mine. To make a black basic, I put them on in black. Now the part of the legs between the black “Metropolis” dress and the boots screamed for some color as well, as the pink jacket dominated the whole look. I first tried some pink leggings but then it was too much of all that pink and so I decided to go a little darker with purple. The “Cat Tights” in violet from LeeZu with the holes just made the perfect match for my 80s look, since back then many ripped their stockings and jeans to get the used look.

For the jewelry, I wanted something with black metals and some pink and lilac or purplish looking gems. Nothing that would dominate the whole look too much, just something that goes with it. I have a fable for neck corsets and collars, so I remembered the “Noor Mystic Infinity” set from Lazuri, that I was given for the amazing jewelry spread in the BoSL Magazine. The “Noor Mystic Infinity” set is fully menu driven like all of the Lazuri jewelry and that makes it for me so valuable. I can decide about the metal and as well the gem stones for fabric and color and I can even color the gem stones in different colors and not just one for all gems. What I figured out for the Lazuri jewelry as well… you can have different styles for nearly each set. Always a basic style and 2 more to add more and more glam and parts to it. That really is something inventive for me, as you just buy one set, have 3 different styles and a full control over the metals and colors.

The skin as usual is my custom made “Wicca” skin in the new ‘lumee lunette’ tone. The lipstick as well comes from Silken Moon and the eye makeup I found at Boom.

The whole look took me so much back into the 80s that I was listening to all the old good tunes during my post and enjoyed it so much, that I would like to quote Cyndi Lauper for the end of my post… “Girls just wanna have fun!”

Autumn is coming and GizzA & EMO-tions are prepared.

The “Turtle Neck Dress” from GizzA is the perfect dress for the actual season. The wonderful print on the woolen dress are held in the typical autumn n colors. The rich brown and cream combinations are perfect to shine on a rainy and grey autumn day.Β The dress is mesh made and goes wonderful with every move you make. The high turtle neck gives a special look and for sure it leads over to the next season that will be even colder πŸ˜‰ .

GizzA - Woolen Dress 002

The hair with the cute knitted beanie are one of the new releases from EMO-tions. The new line of hair with caps, beanies and hoods comes with a very special feature. To change the hair color for the fatpacks you get an amazing HUD, that let you change the hair color. No more stuffing your inventory with a whole pack of different colors πŸ˜‰ .Β  As well you get different styles. For the “Livia” hairstyle you have 4 different options. A rigged long version, a bob, short hair and the tails that I am wearing.

The boots are as well from GizzA and called “Lisha” boots. The brown boots with the nice accented tip and heels were the perfect addition for the “Turtle Neck Dress”.

The skin is my newest custom Skin from Silken Moon. The “Wicca Lumee Lunette” skin has the popular lumee tone of the Eclipse line from Silken Moon. For the lips I decided to go with one ofΒ  the newest lips effect of Silken Moon. The “Gold Desire” is a lipstick overlay that you can add on every lipstick of our own. It adds an amazing golden shine on every color that you like. There will be an eye makeup as well with the same effect. You are able to wear the lips and eyes effect without any lipstick or makeup under it as well. It is not yet released, but I loved the combination of red and gold together with the autumn colors of the dress.

Black & White Riding Hood?

Mea Culpa & EMO-tions 001

Black & White looks always were a favourite of mine. Today I wanted another one and for the basic I started with one of the pret a porter dresses from Mea Culpa. The simple mesh dress is highlighted with a typical Mea Culpa made texture. The strength of Tatanka’s textures we know from various designs he made in the past. For his pret a porter line he has a lot of pieces and designs that look very simple on the first view, but on the second view you will see the delicate and extravagant textures and the little attachments that make evenΒ  the pret a porter line of Mea Culpa to something special.

Mea Culpa & EMO-tions 002

The “Antares” dress from Mea Culpa makes a wonderful shape line and with the amazing shoulder parts it is a wonderful basic for many kinds of styling.

The headpiece and hair reminded me of the “Red Riding Hood” even if the hood is black πŸ˜‰ . It is the new “Mary-Anne” hairstyle from EMO-tions. EMO-tions released a full line of hair pieces with bangs and various head pieces like caps and beanies and hoods. The interesting new feature is that you get a HUD for the fatpack. No more collecting tons of items in your inventoryΒ  – just the basic style with a HUD that chnages the hair color and as well the hairstyle under the hood or cap πŸ˜‰ .

The amazingΒ  necklace and bracelet are a gacha item from GizzA. The “Electra Set” in black was the perfect addition to the styling, as I only needed a necklace and a bracelet. The wonderful nail polish comes from Nail It. Giela Delpaso made several amazing nail polishes for the slink mesh hands and the “French Manicure – Dart Set” has amazing colors with the typical white top of the french manicure. The special on the Nail It nails is that you always have a prim version and one HUD version for the slink mesh hands and feet. So you can decide whether you wanna wear the mesh hands or your original avatar hands.

The lipstick is one of the latest releases from Silken Moon. The “Luna Lips” come with a special feature. You can decide, if you would like to have your lips closed or lightly parted with a teeth prim attachment. Both version will be in the “Luna Lips” pack that you are purchase.

The boots i found at one of the Colabour88 events from ISON. The “Lace-Up Gladiator Sandals” are working with the slink medium mesh feet, so you can make sure to have the best match for your skin tone with your enhancement HUD applier for your slink mesh feet.

The cool chair comes from 22769 [bauwerk]. I wanted to add some furniture to my post and the “Kafka Black” chair in shape of an insect really kicked my mind. It added a special touch of weirdness and surrealism to my picture, what I really love πŸ˜‰ .

Scary Autumn with PurpleMoon & EMO-tions

PurpleMoon Halloween 2013 001

I know Halloween is already over, but this year my RL movement and a tour with a band did hold me back from posting all the amazing Halloween stuffs, so I decided to still post them πŸ˜‰

Autun for me is kinda my favourite season. The days are short, the ambience gets dark and cold. If you go out for a walk you will feel the special mood that you only get in that times. The leaves fly around kissed by the wind, sometimes light rain tickles your face and fog lays heavy over the meadows and grounds.

PurpleMoon Halloween 2013 003

The “Black Widow” dress was the Halloween special of this year by PurpleMoon. A short sexy dress with amazing spider legs in the skirt. The top looks like a tight body with just one arm and the cute tights with the sweet dots added some playful touch to the dark and scary outfit. The necklace as well is from PurpleMoon, as well as the boots. The “Widow” boots are the perfect match for the dress.

The mask as well comes with the “Black Widow” outfit. A simple black mask that goes very well with the rest of the outfit without overdoing it. The huge spiderweb headpiece perfectly catches the spider necklace and the spider legs at the skirt.

For the hair I added one of the newer releases from EMO-tions. The “Illusion” hair style with the loosely wisps for me added the perfect wild attitude πŸ˜‰
