Black & White – Pose Studies with Bauhaus Movement

I was in a Black& White mood again and with the amazing outfit from Moon Elixir, called “Gothique” it was easy to go with those colors. The “Gothique” outfit is a huge gacha set with 22 commons and 2 rares. There is many different versions you can wear, with all the parts being single like the harness is not connected to the pants or the body suit, or the top and the sleeves can be taken off as well.

Sometimes, I just have fu fooling around with poses, not for a special purpose just to practise about angles, crops and new views, or even just to see what you can work with shadows in several angles.

Lately I got a huge pack of poses from Bauhaus Movement, because I was searching ‘no standing’ poses. I realized that I have a lot of modeling poses, but not too many sitting, laying or crouching poses or editorial poses that allow to show a full body shot without having more background that me on my blog pictures.

It is hard if you just go with the general way of modeling poses and then try to make a blog picture that does not show like a million trees and flowers and your avatar gets swallowed by your surrounding especially if you go to a non square format for your pictures. I do like the 4:3, or in general the wider then high proportions for my pictures and so I have to find some solutions for myself. And there is so many more options, that make pictures so much more cool with not just ‘standing and being pretty’ poses ๐Ÿ˜‰ And cropping does help a lot with that but sometimes you just wanna see the whole avatar or at least 90% of it ๐Ÿ˜‰

For those kind of pictures I like a plain simple set or background. When I just wanna play with poses, angles and crops I like it very simple to see the result of the shoots better. That’s why I just put some lamps from neigeux, a wall with a black texture and a frame.

The pack I got from Bauhaus Movement is called “Full Metal Panic” set and has 50 different poses – some even with variations. I really felt the whole pack as a great variety of poses for so many different purposes. Certainly I could not show all 50 of them but I found a few cool ones that worked with today’s outfit. In general I like to wear pants for such pose playing, because with skirts you are way more limited with poses because of the stretching and breaking the skirt or its texture.

Sometimes playing with poses without any special goal can be so much fun and usually I end up with way too many pictures and have a hard time choosing the ones I wanna use for my post :p But I hope you enjoy my selection as much as I did ๐Ÿ™‚

Spring is coming… soon! – Spring Dreams 2017

Today I am very happy to showcase one of the newest releases from Enfant Terrible. The stunning “Verdandi” dress is available at the actual round of the Enchantment.

I always admired Enfant for her stunning textures and her super amazing designs. And again the “Verdandi” dress shows exactly what I am talking about. The incredible texturing in different colors and as well the cool wrapped around belt make a great contrast. The dress looks so filigree and sophisticated and the strong leather belt with those cool studs just breaks up the romantic feeling in an amazing way.

The sweet head piece I found on the Enchantment event as well in a gacha machine from LODE. The “Bleeding Hearts” head piece with the little red hearts on top of the yellow/green leaves just made the perfect head dress for the “Verdandi” dress to me and it pulled back some of the romantic mood the dress has for me.

For the makeup and lipstick I decided to go with one of my personal favourites – Zibska. I love the creativity of Zib Scaggs, anyways if it is, apparel, makeup, shoes or accessories. She has such a great eye for colors, shapes and details and two of her newest make up releases I found at the Enchantment event as well. In total she has 4 packs – 2 eye shadows and 2 lipsticks –ย  at the Enchantment, kinda one dark and one light set and I chose to mix them for today’s post with the light eye shadow and the deep and dark shining lips.

Today I chose to use an inworld location, as iI wanted something like the first spring kiss, as I have enough of all the winter colds already and in Germany we got the first sunny days even if they still are not that warm ๐Ÿ˜‰ At “Romantic Moods” they already changed from the winter season to a spring coming soon layout, which just was perfect for my idea for the pictures.

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 andย  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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy New Year!

When you are going to blog about lingerie, maybe that is not the first idea that comes to your head *giggles*

But, I thought maybe it was about time to try something different. I always missed the mix and match of layers for the mesh clothing. It is really hard to wear parts of different outfits and designers with mesh clothing, if they are not made to be worn together. Mostly the sizes do not fit or something pokes through or what ever else does not work. When I put on the new “Cotton Candy” in black, with the amazing bra, waist corset, panties and garters, I just had the idea to experiment a little bit, since the whole lingerie set is a mesh body applier and would give me more freedom to mix and match with layers again ๐Ÿ™‚ PLUS I wanted to make a different post about one of the incredible lingerie sets from Blacklace ๐Ÿ˜‰

[sys] released the “TWISP” outfit for the Fetish Fair 2016. The outfit contains a strapped body suit that just covers the most important private parts and a great pair of fingerless gloves. With the minimalistic straps it was just perfect, to go with the “Cotton Candy” lingerie set.

Who says lingerie is just something for the bedroom? *winks*

With the combination of those 2 outfits, the look already became very energetic and strong and more and more the idea of a warrior type look grew in my head. At the actual TFC round Bauhaus Movement has an amazing headpiece called “YEAH! Fashion Headpiece” which looked just as it was made for my idea :p The huge head piece with the feather looking parts all around and the amazing head band where the right addition to my warrior idea.

For the tattoos, certainly I chose White Widow again, Julie really is a body artist and I am just addicted to her creations. That became even more when I found out her newest makeup is compatible with the Genesis Lab 2.0 heads! The new “Couture” makeup is such an amazing mask looking eye art!

That is a very funny story as well.. I was looking for a mesh head I like for over a year now. Some were ok, but I never had the “YES!” feeling on any of the heads I tried. In the end I got a Catwa head as that was the one I liked the most but it was more a compromise than a real “YES!” Don’t get me wrong, Catwa does great heads and with the many different ones, they really make a statement. Catwa might be one of the best choices as there are the most appliers for those heads out there at the moment. But to me they are all very beautiful and smooth and I wanted something more character looking.

When I did not even think about a head, I saw the name of a wonderful friend in the Genesis Lab chat. We started talking and after a while I told her that I was looking for a particular head of Genesis but since Genesis is very limited with appliers and skins and as well do the most heads as Gachas… I kinda trashed the idea even if I liked their heads a lot. I came out that Danity Minx has a lucky hand with Gachas and she got a lot of the rare heads out of those and as well a few doubles. She gave me a few as gifts – very generous gifts – and I started trying them and when I put on a certain head… I immediately fell in love. DAMN my love fell on a Genesis head… that was my first intention.

But I could not help it and so I try to work it as much as I can at the moment. I was told in the group, that the support is very slow to non existent and that many heads have issues and do not get updated. With the one I chose it seems I got lucky as only the lashes positioner is broken but you can get used to it, that it just works the other way round. Sadly non of the skins for Genesis comes with a no brow option, so I could not wear it as an everyday head anyways since one of my trademarks is exactly that. In PS I am able to remove them but not on the grid ๐Ÿ™

So we will see how that will go in the future… I have a light at the end of the tunnel, since a wonderful and kind skin maker offered me he maybe could take care of that ๐Ÿ˜‰
