Butterflies – Black & White Experience

Sometimes, you see an outfit and immediately have an idea what you would like to do with it.

Exactly that happened with the “Siran” outfit from Zibska. In general with Zibska I have never a hard time when I am wearing one of her outfits, as I love er artistic view on clothing and design.

It was one of that days.. I stood around going through my inventory – telling myself I need to sort and clean that mess – and fooling around with unboxing and trying several things, when I found the “Siran” outfit from Zibska, which I got a while ago. When I put it on, the black and white caught my heart on the first sight. Yes – I have a weakness for black & white stuffs πŸ˜‰

The asymmetric design with the huge black body attachment and the black butterflies on the right side and the more filigree white one on the left perfectly match the 2 colored body suit. The bodysuit as well is unsymmetrical with a long black arm on the right and short white one on the left.

Since I had butterflies already I felt the need for more butterflies and added some in the background that I got ages ago from Tableau Vivant.

The amazing hand piercings and claws are from MEVA… I know I had them showcased already a few times but they are just so amazing that I can’t take them off :p

The mask and the cute little key in my mouth, I found in a folder that I got longer ago :p It was made by Bauhaus Movement and originally there is as well a clown collar coming with it, which I did not use for todays look.

I really do enjoy black & white themes so I kept the background as well very simple. I hope you enjoyed the Black & White as much as I did πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰ And cropping does help a lot with that but sometimes you just wanna see the whole avatar or at least 90% of it πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

The amazing nail polish was made by Giela Delpaso, owner and designer fo Nailed It!. I lately has a talk with her and I had to tell her that she kinda seems to read my mind about her new releases. Always when she brings out a new design I have the feeling of ‘Oh yes exactly that I missed!’ With her nail designs I am always finding the right style for my looks!

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

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”

The mixture of the opaque chessmen and the floating lace make a perfect combination. The dress is made of a basic black fabric that open on the belly for a little chessboard πŸ˜‰ Really a piece of Art!

The last outfit for today is the “Falling Apart Gown”. AlsoΒ  the first time on the runway at the BoSL Fashion Week 2011. A total eyecatcher is the huge bow head piece and the beautiful sculpted skirt with all this little domino parts at the back.

Wicca’s Wardobe: Weird moments in black and white – the second ;)

Ok I admit I stuck a while with my weird moments about stylings, but I have to admit it feels very nice to be allowed to do what you want πŸ˜‰ The basic of this styling was one of the last “Claim the Fame” shows. The theme was Fantasy Avantgarde. Mostly I try to match the shows themes with my stylings and so this look came together.

The basic makes one of the Black & White skins, made by Nuuna Nitely, owner and designer of Nuuna’s Skins. The for sure with my addiction to Finesmith Designs, jewelry from yula Finesmith had to be part. The skirt part is from the “Saleena Inspiration” set. To cover up the private parts I chose to wear the “Maya” nipple shields and the “O collection 011” bracelets, as well from Finesmith. If you look closer you can see that I used the “Valeria Inspiration” earrings as well for the ears and I changed them in size and made me great wings out of them as well πŸ™‚ The pants, the forehead pice and the feet parts I took from Eshi Otawara‘s “Flying Home” outfit. For the top I remembered one of my old-time favourites… the “Wilted Wednesday Vest” made by Kyoot. For the hair I chose one of the great hairstyles of 3636 Designs.

And now I will hide in the depth of my inventory again and see what I can come up next with πŸ˜‰
