Wicca’s Wardrobe @ Monthly Midnight Madness September 2018

Wicca’s Wardrobe @ Monthly Midnight Madness (September 7th -9th)

It’s time for Monthly Midnight Madness (MMM)!! What is that you ask?

MMM runs only from September 7th-9th at our main store. Items are exclusive to this event only and will not be available after September 7th-9th. There will be only 1500 available for each gift (0L$). On Sunday there are the ‘last chance’ vendors, that are active for 24 hours. There people can get the gifts for 50 L$, if they could not grab them before or they were sold out already. For our Wicca’s Wardrobe group the last chance vendors will be FREE!

First gift we will be offering is our Holly Corset & Skirt, the second offering will be the Holly matching jacket. The Holly set is made for Maitreya’s Lara, Belleza’s Freya, and Slink’s Hourglass.

Please keep in mind that MMM has strict rules for avatar complexity. If your complexity is more than 50.000 an orb will send you home. We have to do that to comply with MMM’s requirements to reduce lag and to keep the vendors working smoothly and without any issues. (It’s nothing personal, honest!)

Kunoichi

Ninja 3

Kunoichi s a modern term for a female ninja or practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo).

The term is thought to derive from the names of characters that resemble the three strokes in the kanji character for woman ( onna); said in the order they are written: ku (く) – no (ノ) – ichi (一). Early literary quotes include Enshū Senkuzuke Narabini Hyakuin (遠舟千句附并百韵?) (1680) as well as Maekuzukeshū (前句付集?) (1716), which specifically associates the word with the kanji 女 supporting the etymology. The “くノ一” writing requires the use of one character from each Japanese character set – first hiragana, then katakana, then kanji. While hiragana and kanji can exist in the same word, katakana generally cannot appear in conjunction with the others. There are exceptions to this, for example in “ゴミ箱” and “消しゴム”.

Female ninja are mentioned in Bansenshukai, a 17th-century Japanese book compiling the knowledge of the clans in the Iga and Kōga regions devoted to the training of ninja. According to this document, the primary function of female ninja was espionage, finding legitimate service positions in the households of enemies, to accumulate knowledge by gaining trust or overhearing conversations. One historically accepted example of this is Mochizuki Chiyome, the 16th century noblewoman with ninja roots who was tasked by the warlord Takeda Shingen with recruiting women to create a secret network of a few hundred female spies.

Sometimes if you just put on one item, you immediately get an idea what you want to do with it… I am sure all of you had that happen at least once. Something like this happened to me when I put on the “Isis” collar and skirt from [sys].

When I put it on, I immediately had the vision of a ninja/asian inspired look. I remembered the awesome “Mei” hair from EMO-tions – that was sold on the south-asia inspired round of On9 – which I decorated with the cool “Albedo Horns” from Ayashi.

To cover my chest, since the feathers of “Isis” collar did not reach down far enough, I used the “Tigress Top” from Apple May Design. As it is a mesh body applier it fit perfectly under the feathers. Certainly a tattoo cannot miss when I style something like this :p This time I wanted something special and so the silver “Genius” tattoo from White Widow was the perfect match. I never made a secret out of it, that White Widow is my favourite tattoo brand… did I? *grins*

Ninja 6

I thought a little bit until I got the idea… but certainly a warrior needs some armor 😉 At least some that looks great for the pictures*giggles*

[LAB737] makes the most amazing armor parts I ever saw. So detailed and as well used looking makes them very realistic and I could not resist to add parts of the “Dragoon” armor to my left arm.

Ninja 2

Now the most complicated to get good pictures – I needed a good Katana and as well cool poses which did not just look like fighting. Certainly I could have sat hours and hours and make me some but then… still the good Katana would be missing since I just had som super old prim ones who kinda looked disgusting for nowadays standard. So I did what I usually do when I am looking for something special… I went to SL Marketplace 🙂

Ninja 4

I found a very little store, with just a few items for sale on MP and instantly fell in love with the “Katana Pose Collection”. A whole set with many variations of 10 different poses and 2 amazing handcrafted Katanas. Even more I was surprised that they were made for a female warrior, so exactly what I wanted. The poses do look more show or performance like than, fighting itself and so they were the perfect animations for the pictures.

Ninja 1

First I tried to build me a photo set, but soon I realized – I do not have the right items nor the knowledge of buildings and sceneries, that would suit the ideas and satisfy the styling. I jumped into the SL search and looked for places with key words like: japanese, warrior, ninja, katana and many more until I found “Kowloon”, a little island, which was empty when I arrived but the buildings and the garden was incredible beautiful. While I was shooting, the sim filled up more and more, but I did not see anyone around me and I became curious. I started to cam around, to spy silently, when I found an arena with a hell of a lot people who had begun a fight. I was so excited to see that, to see them fighting with Katanas and all kind of asian weapons, that I stopped shooting for a bit and just watched without disturbing them. I had so much fun watching them, that I nearly forgot to finish my shooting. It was an amazing afternoon and as well a lot of fun and I enjoyed the trip to a past time, that is totally new to me.

Show me how you Burlesque!

Burlesque 4

People love burlesque today because it incorporates all the old-school glamour, satire and highlights the female form – it’s something that many women can actually see themselves doing.

Burlesque 5

TUNES

Burlesque, is a form of performing art that reaches back to at least the 1860s in the US. Presented in cabarets, theaters and some other location, burlesque was mostly presented by women. Colorful and laborious costumes as well as mood appropriate music and dramatic lightning, sometimes even fire breathing  were part of many burlesque shows. The goal was not to totally strip down, more to just take of certain clothing like gloves and stockings, which sometimes spoke louder as a common striptease.

Burlesque lost it’s popularity towards the simple strip in the 1920/30s, but in it was never totally gone and got back some popularity way later with Hollywood productions and several organisations and clubs that try to keep the burlesque feeling and lifestyle alive. It was often called New-Burlesque or Neo-Burlesque and the 90s brought a huge comeback of the whole idea. In 2010 the movie Burlesque,with Christina Aguliera and Cher, this new way of a more modern burlesque feeling was shown in an amazing way. Dita von Teese is probably the most popular burlesque dancer nowadays and with all her productions, performances, products and marketing she is an amazing and valuable asset of the Neo-Burlesque movement.

Burlesque 1

Certainly hat was just a very short information about Burlesque and I could go on for hours to talk more about it as I personally really do like the idea of a burlesque lifestyle, but I will safe you from that and just move on to my todays post 😉

The reason why I came across Burlesque again, was the actual round of the GENRE event. It is the first time that we got invited with wicca’s Wardrobe to be part and then right there the theme Burlesque.. you can imagine how  much I smiled all over when I saw that.

The GENRE event aims for items, that are not more expensive than 100 L$. We made the amazing “Fleur” boots for the event and set each of the 12 colors for 99 L$. The idea behind the boots were to give some old-fashioned, victorian themed Burlesque boots a little modern twist in shape and colors 😉

Burlesque 7

When we set up the event I found so many other incredible designs that I could not resist to grab some and do pictures with all of them. The amazing fitting “Versailles Fall” corset with the amazing frills around your hips comes from Honey Bender for ber new original mesh label BENDER. The corset itself is an applier for the mesh body, what underlines every woman’s body shape in a very true way 😉 The beautiful frills that surround the hips come in different sizes to make sure they fit your curves.

Burlesque 2

The lovely accessories, the adorable collar and the awesome realistic cigarette, I found as well at the GENRE event. It was just amazing how all the parts feel together in one without overthinking it too much ;).

For the set I used the entire “Belle Rouge” collection from [noctis] – even that used lingerie which hangs down from the chandlier and lies on the couch and the floor came with the set. The chair I am posing on was made by [BlackTulip] and for the other pictures I used poses from the “Teese Me” set made by {Nantra}. Everything besides the head, body and hair in this post comes from GENRE, so you better hurry to make your way over there and see what else is there. There are many more than the few I was able to use for my post :p
