Lazy afternoon at the Record Store

When I got the amazing record store from 22769, I immediately wanted to do a music listening inspired picture as I totally wanted to showcase this amazing set.

It is a gacha with 18 items including the rare. On top there was the special exclusive for the Epiphany, which is the actual record store building, which I did not use for this post as I always have trouble with lightnings in closed rooms :p (Not to mention, that I found out AFTER the pictures were done, that I can seperate the front and roof and just remove them for better light settings… DOH)

So I needed an outfit that was appropriate for a record store… something cool and urban probably would match the best.

The perfect base for that kind of look seemed the “Gymnastic Suit” from PurpleMoon. Again Poulet Koenkamp – designer of PurpleMoon – amazes me with her texturing. all those different patterns and fabrics on one outfit and the amazing cut outs paired with the upper body harness are simply stunning!

The cool jacket I found at Sabotage and since I anyways have a weakness for oversized clothing , I totally had to have it :p

Since I saw a lot of this new trend of pimping urban sporty wear in RL lately I added the “Nemesia” ankle boots from Glamistry. They added the elegant touch to the whole style that kinda pimped it the way I wanted it to ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I was looking through my hair, it was kinda fate I guess, that I found the “Rhythm” hair from Doe. I know I got it from an event as I thought it would fit super cool to something I was planning on a while ago and certainly.. I forgot about it until today*giggles*

With the super cool earphones attached to it, it was the perfect hairstyle for my lazy record store day!

Today kinda was a challenge for me as I am not very familiar with the more sporty looking styles, but the more I tried stiff the more I really started to like it. So I probably will explore that kind of look more in the future ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe some when I am allowed to play with the cool kids then*snickers*

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

A Night after Christmas with Asia Rae and E.V.E Studio

Asia Rae 01

Phew Christmas is over and I have my ‘normal life’ back ๐Ÿ˜‰

That gives me time, to blog about the newest releases of Asia Rae, E.V.E Studio and EMO-tions.

The amazing “Magissa Latex Dress” is one of the latest news by Asia Rae. The dress is a fashion dream with the huge cape looking shoulder part, that goes down until the elbows and the amazing combination of a knitted texture for the sleeves in contrast to the shiny latex looking fabric of the dress itself.Asia Rae 02

The super cool hair comes from EMO-tions for the Shiny Shabby Event. It is called “Jezebel” The huge hair style with the extraordinary shape comes with several appliers for mesh heads for the hair base and as well the amazing head band is part of the whole look.

Now I would like to drag your view no the amazing horns. They were made by Noke Yuitza for E.V.E Studio. The awesome horns are part of her Moon Collection, inspired by the winter nature. As always for E.V.E Studio the horns are 100% original mesh and materials enabled. You can choose between different colors for the horns to make them fit your desires ๐Ÿ™‚

Sceneries are always important for pictures and for today I chose the amazing “Christmas Decoration Set” from 22769 to make my sweet and cozy background.

And now I will put back all my Christmas stuff into boxes and put it back in the attic of my sweet little Hobbit House until next year ๐Ÿ˜‰

Black Dreams with Circles

Art in Hats Valsnia 3

And again the styling started with a hat only…

This time it was one of the contributions of Valsnia for the Art in Hats event.

Art in Hats Valsnia 9

I was thinking a lot about that cool “Circles Hat” and how I could style it up. I tried various style categories and nothing wanted to look right. I wanted something strong and powerful, but still not too huge to hide the hat.

When I started fooling with the Scenery and all the amazing 22769 furniture an idea grew in my mind.

Art in Hats Valsnia 1

A few days ago, I got this amazing tight dress from KaS as a special gift, and Iย  thought about, if that could work for my idea…

The dress has many different options to wear, but the long tight skirt with the sleeved top, looked perfect for what I was going for.

With the high neck collar from Spacegirl, I was able to kinda bring the circles of the amazing hat back to the whole look.

Art in Hats Valsnia 5

First I tried all kinds of pumps and stilettos and as well over knee boots for the look, but all added a weird domme touch to the whole scenery and I did not want that at all.

So just went with simple not too high boots from Pixelfashion, wich looked right and perfect to the amazing furniture.

Overall this looked like a very modern set up and I really enjoyed doing this whole photo series ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 08/17/2015 – Goodies @ On9 :)

On9 1a

Today I would like to showcase some of the amazing designs available at the On9 event.

On9 is a monthly event, that offers many different designers, creations, and items. You will find clothing, accessories, furniture, poses, shoes, makeup and nearly everything you can thin about all in one place done by different genius and skilled creators. You can imagine how happy I was when I was asked if we would like to be part with Wicca’s Wardrobe as well… among all those incredible designers and creators ๐Ÿ˜‰

But today I won’t use any of our own stuff and put some spotlight on some of those amazing items you can find at the current On9 event.

On9 2a

Let’s start with the incredible amazing head-piece. Who else that Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska, could do such an amazing art piece?

The huge head-piece looks like made out of petals and some sweet fishes are swimming around. The head-piece comes with a great color HUD that lets you customize the petals, the accents and the fishes to many different colors.

To fit under this wonderful head-piece I needed some not too high but still modern and fresh looking hairstyle. Guess what… I as well found that one at On9 *snickers*. No.Match offers the perfect hair for my actual look. The “No.Call” style with the two smart braided tails left and right was the right addition to balance the crazy and the cute touch of the whole look.

The glasses are as well available at On9. Made by [Since 1975] those glasses are an extra ordinary addition to your accessories box! You can decide between 4 different colors. I went with the golden version for today’s post.

On9 3a

The super sweet top was made by the amazing Poulet Koenkamp, owner and designer of PurpleMoon.

Poulet is one of the most talented people, I was allowed to meet and call a friend in SL. She always amazed me with her stunning hand printed textures and her awesome ideas and designs. For this month of On9 she made this delicate top called “Anika” in 7 different colors. The top is a wide and loose fit and together with the cool sleeves, this top really is a must have for every ladies wardrobe especially for the late summer season:) .

ย The pants and the shoes coming from a very talented and skilled woman too. Thetra Blackheart, ower and designer of E-Clipse. The “Fringe Pants” I got longer ago but the amazing “Follia” heels are as well available at On9. In 6 different colors or as a fatpack, those amazing heels fit the Slink, the Maitreya and the TMP feet. The strapped heels have wonderful fringes at the front and some amazing metal decorations on the straps. With the HUD you can change the metals to 3 different types.

Last but not least I would like to zoom in a little bit closer and drag the focus on this incredible necklace from Kunglers. You can pick from 5 different colors. The great combination of filigree metals, stones and gems makes a wonderful every day necklace for many different styles.

For all the other amazing ne releases at On9 please jump over there and take a look by yourself. And don’t forget… every designer offers one piece for 20% off the regular price, like always at On9!

LOTD 08/16/2015 – Summertime

Summer Breeze 1a

As Time Passes Me By

The butterflies are floating through the air.
The grass is green,
and the trees are tall.
As the wind whistles through my hair,
I let life pass me by.
As time ticks and the clock goes by,
the flowers grow taller as life passes me by.
And I dream of floating right on by.
But now it’s time to stop dreaming,
and wake up to a hot summer day.

[Alice G.]
Summer Breeze 2aToday I was in a total summer mood…
That does not happen too often, but sometimes it really happens ๐Ÿ˜‰
The outfit I am wearing we made for an event called FAD. The theme was Sundae Sunday.
Something dreamy and summer colored immediately came to my mind and it should have a little bit of ‘Kitsch’ as well. Why? Because Sundae Sunday reminds me of kinda the good old 50s/60s times with all the neat pastel toned colors and as well with a lot of plastic jewelry and accessories :p
The “Summer Breeze” dress – here shown in yellow – is a short dress with an amazing deep neckline in the front and as well a super sexy back with a lot of lines crossing your back side.
The “Tea Time” hat should speak for itself with the cute tea-pot and cup on the top.
To match the whole look we made the “Manon Heels” in yellow as well, with their cool heels, that totally add something special to the sweet look ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 03/12/2015 – Original Mesh from SoliDea FoliEs

Solidea01

Today I was in a bit of a sad mood so I guess it kinda influenced today’s pictures a bit…

Not too long ago I got the great “Sweet Powder Shirt” from SoliDEa FoliEs. Lately Mila Tatham started to make her own mesh and the “Sweet Powder Shirt” is one of her very own selfmeshed creations. In the package there comes a wonderful black flexi skirt and black mesh panties with the outfit but I wanted to wear some pants for my today’s look ๐Ÿ˜‰

The shirt is a non symmetric design with one long sleeve and a bare one for the other arm. With the puffy sleeves it is a great contrast to the other side.

Solidea02

For the pants I chose the amazing “Perceive” pants from Lyrical Bizarre Templates. The black pants with the dark tartan looking fabric just made the perfect match to the look I wanted to go for.

I have an addiction for dark stylings, always when I get asked about my favourite color I name black even if black is not a real color :p

Sometimes I just wanna add a single color somewhere and today it was a monocle with red accents, that caught my attention. The “Greatest Love Earthbound Monocle” in black from Sanu. To repeat the only color of this look I decided to go with red shoes and red fingernails. The cool looking shoes I grabbed at “9ty” and the amazing nail polish again is made by my favourite nail designer Giela Delpaso from Nailed It!

Solidea04

The amazing hair I found at Vanity Hair. The “Guns & Pearls” hair style is exactly my favourite way of wearing my hair RL so I had to have it and use it for my todays styling ๐Ÿ™‚

The amazing black & white sofa was made by 22769 for the Future Wave event 2015. Originally the sofa has 2 parts one inner and one outer ring, but for today I only used the outer ring of the “Snake Sofa”

Immerse for the Fashion Fair

Immerse 001

Today I am very happy to welcome a new designer on my blog – Immerse! The first dress I like to showcase, is the contribution of Immerse for The Fashion Fair, that starts on the 30th of november.

The Fashion Fair Poster

The short “Sequioa” dress is an amazing mesh made dress. The woolen texture is perfect for the actual season and the amazing ribbon thats attached to the waist band really gives it a wonderful playful touch. The dress adds some chic to a casual look. The leggings I chose are from Leezu and with the bald knees they underline the sexy touch of the look.

Immerse 002

The shoes are made by [sys] and the amazing huge bag comes from BeloD, a new and upcoming label from Bozda Mubble. She made a lot of amazing designs lately and the “Leather Handbag” really caught my attention, as I always look for cool fashion accessories.

The hair is one of the latest releases by EMO-tions called “Harley”. With the lightly ‘,essy’ look it was the perfect addition to my today’s casual look. The necklace as well comes from EMO-tions and is called “Daylight”.

For the nail polish I used one of the last releases from Nailed It. The cool red polish with the golden studds out of the “Rock Set'”made the perfect finish for me.

The awesome furniture right behind me is the latest release from 22769. The cool “Vroom” sofa lets every males heart beat higher and even me would like to have one of those in her living room*giggles* It was made for the November mens department. The lamp I took out of the “Midcentrury Modern” set wich contains as well a PG version of a bed and a chair.

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 evenย  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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ . 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 inventoryย  – just the basic style with a HUD that chnages the hair color and as well the hairstyle under the hood or cap ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

The amazingย  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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ .
