News from [sys] – Futuristic Mood

sys001

If you are in a spacey, cyber or future mood what else than sys and Zibska you can use to think about a styling 😉

I totally fell in love with one of the latest releases of sys called “Exes”. The ensamble contains a wonderful sexy corset and a short skirt. The combination of the black base and the light blue applications caught my attention as i like this color combination a lot.

sys002

For those who know me for a while, you know that I never can have something stand alone and that I love to mix and match different designers and sometimes even different styles to create a new look. The “Exes” outfit already was a great start, but I wanted to add some more and so I remebered the “Sybella Noir” dress from Zibska, that I got at the SAVIAD fasion fair. The collar and the cuffs just were perfect to brake the more minaimal looking corset and skirt and added something different and strange to it with the pretty flowers in that very stong and dark black. Now I needed some hair that again would not be too elegant, but as well looks nottoo boring as well. I have to admit, I was wering that hair a lot lately and it became kinda a all time favourite of mine. The “Kat” hairstyle from EMO-tions would be soemthing I would LOVE to try RL on stage with the band as well 😉 .

Now for a female’s worst nightmare… shoes…

Do you know that feeling if you open your closed RL or your inventory SL, even if you have about 150 or more pair of shoes you still think that you have no shoes?

So it was with this styling too. I was trying several of my shoes and some was like … ‘ok’, but nothing really jumped into my eyes. All of a sudden I remebered, that I bought some shoes for slink feet lately on Marketplace, wich I not yet did unpack or sort into my shoe folder.

Welcome to my second nighmare… how those shoes were called and where in my overfilled object folder they are…

“Gladiator Couture Princess Boots”!!!

Yes! Something with Gladiator it was and thank god the inventory search was nice enough to work! Those mesh boots are made for the high version of the Slink feet and it comes in 2 different versions. One materials version for SL and Firestorm users, wich shows a subtile reflection on the shoes if you are able to turn your graphics up to advanced lightning and as well another version for all of those who either use another viewer or cannot pull up the graphics so high. For this post I used the no materials version, as the reflection of the boots nearly let them shine blue and I wanted the dark black to my styling.

Last but not least I looked though my makeup folder. I did not want too much but as well the whole look kinda requested something. So I decided to go with the “Zion” makeup from Nuuna and one of my Wicca lipsticks from Silken Moon wich is tinatable so I could make my own color to match the look.

News @ LeeZu! – At your side

LeeZu - Sazzy & Wicca 001

News @ LeeZu! Again LeeZu surprised us with an amazing new release – The “Constance Top” and the “Constance Leather Pants”. Both parts are mesh made and you can choose from various colors. The pants are amazing textured with an a wonderful used look leather texture and some cute ruffles at the knee. The “Constance Top” is something really eye catching. The right side of the top look like, as if you would have lost the line over your shoulder and it just fell down. I never saw something like this before as it gives the casual look a really cool and debonair touch. The top as well is again a masterpice when you look closer on the texture. All the shine and lights and folds make it look very realistic. Again I have to admit LeeZu is one of my personal texture goddesses. If you are brave enough you can just skip the top, wich I chose to wear from the “Vera” outfit.

Sazzy as well chose the same combination of the “Constance” top and pants, plus the “Vera” bra but in different colors.

We had so much fun doing the pics and the whole shooting went into a wonderful afternoon at the amazing “All starts with a smile” sim. It has so many wonderful corners and we really had a blast at the playground even if we had a hard time to find some non kissing couple poses :p But we managed to find some, with a lot of laughing, that we could use as best friends too.

Thank you Sazzy for that wonderful time again. I am happy we met and I hope we can have a lot more of those wonderful moments and times 😉

When the daylight’s gone, & you’re on your own
And you need a friend, just to be around
I will comfort you, I will take your hand
And I’ll pull you through, I will understand
And you know that…

I’ll be at your side
There’s no need to worry
Together, we’ll survive
Through the haste & hurry
I’ll be at your side, if you feel like you’re alone
And you’ve nowhere to turn
I’ll be at your side

If life’s standing still, and your soul’s confused
And you cannot find what road to choose
If you make mistakes
You can’t let me down
I will still believe
I will turn around
And you know that

I’ll be at your side
There’s no need to worry
Together we’ll survive
Through the haste & hurry
I’ll be at your side
If you feel like you’re alone
And you’ve nowhere to turn
I’ll be at your side

I’ll be at your side
There’s no need to worry
Together we’ll survive
Through the haste & hurry
I’ll be at your side, if you feel like you’re alone
You’ve got somewhere to go
‘coz I’m right there

DaneMarkz for the debra charity!

Charity001

Today I would like to focus on something very special. The top and the necklace for today’s post are something very important.

Both was made by Hannah Daviau, owner and designer of DaneMarkz (DMZ) and it is her contribution for the EB Charity Event.

The top is available in 6 wonderful colors and patterns with flowers and butterflies and all what you can imagine under the summer theme :). For todays post I chose the “Nanette” top in peachy green. The beautiful combination of colors and the amazing shape of the top are the right choice for the upcoming season. Together with the “Summerlovin'” necklace in green wich as well is a donation to the debra  (Dystrophic Epidermolyosis Bullosa Research of America) charity. AS well she made some shoes that will probably be part of another blog post ;).

Charity002

What is EB?

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) — The Worst Disease You’ve Never Heard Of.™

Epidermolysis Bullosa, or EB, is a very rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects 1 child out of every 20,000 births (that means about 200 children a year are born with EB).  EB is actually a group of disorders that share a prominent manifestation of extremely fragile skin that blisters and tears from friction or trauma. Internal organs and bodily systems can also be seriously affected by EB.  The list of secondary complications  can be long and may require multiple interventions from a range of medical specialists.  As of today, there is no cure or treatment.  Daily wound care, pain management and protective bandaging are the only options available.

The manifestations of EB, the symptoms the person suffers from, and the overall long term outcome on quality of life run the gamut from mild to devastatingly severe.  This is dependent on several factors including the type and subtype of EB and the inheritance pattern (autosomal dominant versus recessive).  There are many people who are diagnosed with milder forms of EB, which, while they can be extremely difficult and painful to live with, are not disfiguring or lethal.  In these forms of EB blistering of the skin may be limited to the hands and feet which may not result in any scarring or loss of function.  In more severe forms there is generalized blistering of the skin as well as injury to many internal organs and bodily systems.  These more severe forms of EB result in disfigurement, disability and early death, usually before the age of 30.  In fact, some forms of EB are lethal in the first few months of life.

EB is caused by mutations in the DNA code that make up genes.  Genes are responsible for making and expressing proteins.  EB can result from one genetic mutation in any one of the 18 genes that have been found to cause the disorder.  These mutations, or errors in the genetic code, may not allow the affected gene to produce a specific protein, or it may result in the incorrect formation of that protein.  Either way, the mutation does not enable the affected protein to work correctly thus resulting in extremely fragile skin, and other manifestations of EB like: anemia, cardiomyopathy, syndactyly (fusion of the fingers and toes), renal insufficiency, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), malnourishment, cancer, constipation, osteoporosis, muscular dystrophy and pyloric atresia.

There are four types of genetically inherited EB: Simplex, Dystrophic, Junctional and Kindler.  These four major types of EB differ phenotypically (what physical manifestations look like) and genotypically (the genetic makeup) as well as by the area of the skin where there is blistering, otherwise known as “the site of ultra-structural disruption or cleavage”.  There is also an autoimmune form of the disorder called, EB Acquisita .

Children with EB are known as Butterfly children because their skin is as fragile as the wings of a butterfly.

There are about 30,000 people with EB in the United States.

EB affects both genders and every racial and ethnic background.

Pose Fair 2014 – News from Wicca’s Wardrobe!

WM - Poses Momentum Set Posefair 2014 logo

The Pose Fair 2014 is up! RubyStarlight Writer again made it to put together one of the most popular events on the grid. Every year she takes a lot of time and effort to feature a lot of pose designers on her fair. This year she created an amazing place for the Pose Fair 2014.

WM - Poses Dark Lady Set Posefair 2014 logo

When you enter the sim you will immediately see what I am talking about. The whole place is black and just the shop entrances are highlighted. When I set up my store I really was impressed and it was super fun to just walk around and enjoy the feeling of the darkeness outside of the shops 😉

WM - Poses Elegant Clutch Set Posefair 2014 logo

For me this Pose Fair is very special as I was allowed to be part as a designer for the first time 🙂 . For my debut on the Pose Fair 2014 I made 4 different sets who are exclusively released atthe Pose Fair 2014 for now.

§ sets for the ladies and one for the gents. After I was asked so often to make some more male poses I had to include at least one set for the males as well even if I was told and as well shown, that some of my other sets as well work unisex.

I hope you enjoy my new sets and have fun by using them for runway or pictures 😉

You should not miss that great experience of the Pose Fair 2014 and all the great and amazing new and exclusive releases of all the designers who are being part 🙂

LOTD 24042014-01

No more I’m taking this hatred from you
You make me feel dead when I’m talking to you
You take me for granted when I’m not around
So burn down your bridges ’cause I’m not going down

This time I will be heard
I’m not gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

I hope you’re unhappy and hurting inside
I want you to choke when you swallow your pride
Lay in your coffin and sleep with your sins
Give me the nails and I’ll hammer them in right now

This time you won’t be heard
You are gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

This time you won’t be heard
You are gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

You fake your damnation
You pray for salvation
’cause your heart is made of stone
You can die and rot alone
You can die and rot alone

Just die and rot alone

This time you won’t be heard

[Bullet for my Valentine]

Spring Time with Lybra

Lybra 001

Lybra again made a mini collection of spring or even summer awaiting designs ;).

Today I wanna drag the focus on the “Jamee” dress. All of the dresses and gowns of this sweet mini collection are full of color and aerial parts, but the “Jamee” dress really caught my attention the most, so I decided to put it first 😉

The base of the dress is mesh made, so you can be sure it will move amazing with your avatar. The wonderful skirt accent parts at the bottom are flexible prims, wich move amazingly with every step, and some of them even go up to the hips what gives a real playful touch.

Lybra 002

At the chest a wonderful flower ornament was added, wich underlines the spring or summer touch. The whole collection was released for the K.I.D.S charity and one of the amazing dresses even was a 100% donation for even that.

Certainly I could have added a wonderful elegant updo, wich would have put the dress more towards a gown attitude, for a more elegant occasion, but I loved the simple and clean, even lightly casual touch with the short and modern hair cut from Vanity Hair. For the makeup I wanted to continue my simple and easy, casual spring look and I just added some orange nailpolish from Nailed It! and the open version of the “Diva Lips” from Silken Moon in papaya with the prim teeth attachment in pearly white,  that comes with the whole pack.

The furniture, that you can see on the first picture was made by Atelier Visconti. The “Sophie” set contains a table, a chair, cupcake stands and cake stand, wich you can modify and 3 super sweet and cute cupcakes. I liked the idea of a spring morning, when you can have breakfirst outside – coffee and some sweet cupcakes in the sun… what more do you need?

Wicca’s Wardrobe for K.I.D.S. – Through the eyes of a child

13783588063_cd9a9a4f67_o(Picture & Model: Sazzy Nirpaw)

Through the eyes of a child

Sweet innocent child with your open eyes.
You’ve seen us for who we really are.
And I know that there’ll be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day.
And I wish that this world would embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I know you, I’ve seen your face before
you brought me to this open door
afraid to walk through.
Please take my hand.

I know that there will be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day?
And I wish that this world embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I see where we’ll go from here.
‘Cause love doesn’t break
with the right amount of care
in your hands is whom you’ve choosen to be.
Life is a freedom.
Now go out there and be free.

Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.

 Fashion for K.I.D.S.  is a week-long charity event which will take place from April 14th to April 21st, 2014. that will help to feed the bodies and minds of young children. The two Miss Virtual World 2014 Candidates, Sienna Bellios and Shelby Matfield will collaborate in this effort , and raises funds for K.I.D.S., a children’s charity that aids in the development of children through nourishment and education (literacy). K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distress Situations) donates 97 percent of donations to the children and families they serve. The charity helps many kids in distress situations such as homelessness, low literacy rate, victims of domestic violence, children with serious illness, and military families. More information on this charity can be found at http://www.kidsdonations.org/about_wwa.htm.

During this event, a host of 18+ designers  willing to set up small vendors of their creations – with one creation donating 50% or more to the children’s charity. Since the charity is to aid children, the designers will have an array of bright colors to represent children, and just in time for spring! To cap off this event, we will host a grand fashion show on the BOSL sim, featuring the awesome women of Miss Virtual World 2014! It is our hope that through this colorful, spring fashion event, that we raise a substantial amount of lindens to give to K.I.D.S.

—————————————————————

Each day families all around the world struggle for food, clothing, and shelter. Each day a parent loses their job and with the loss of a job, usually the loss of their home follows. We work hard to make ends meet, rob Peter to pay Paul, struggle to care for our children but the truth is, the vast majority is just one pay check away from poverty. And while as adults we suffer, those who suffer the most are our children. (Sazzy Nirpaw, http://sazzynirpaw.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/through-a-childs-eyes/)

—————————————————————

I really was very happy when Sienna IMed me and asked me, if I would like to participate in that event. I worked or over 10 years in children home for abused and homeless kids and it really touched my heart, when Sienna asked me. All the memories came back, the eyes of the children looking at me, their little hands reaching out for something the would like to have, the sparkling in their eyes for candy if I brought some with me to work…

I was thinking a lot what I could make for such a charity, because I really wanted to have something that has the kids theme in it. The idea of the “Lolliopop Gown” was born. All kids love candy and the idea of a gown made of lollipops just seemed for me the right idea for such a charity 😉

The gown comes with the mesh corset, a mesh skirt, the huge lollipop back-fan, the ribbons and ruffles and some little parts like the hair decoration and the lollipop for the hand. I left all the prim parts modify, so that you can play with them and reattach or resize them to your likings.

I hope you all like the idea, my little candy dream because 100% proceeds of the “Lollipop Gown” will go to the K.I.D.S. charity.

Please help those who cannot help themselves!

Lybra & Finesmith 002

Sometimes you do not really know what you wanna style, or what you wanna wear and then you maybe just start with the basic idea of the color. Today I was in a black & white mood.

For the base I took the amazing “Tigress Gown” by Lybra. Lybra made this for the Tiger Alley event at SAVIAD. The imagination of a white tiger is not to deny ;). The long tight shape of the mesh dress, that opens towards the floor, with its tiger looking top and the more black wider bottom was the perfect start to create one of my very own looks 😉 .  If you put on a dress you have various possibilities how to style it. You can go for the elegant and pretty look, or you can go a bit more couture or wild. For today I had no particular style in mind and just followed my feelings. The jewelry I took from the “Amit” of Finesmith. Usually the set comes with a black short leather dress but the jewelry itself was so perfect to the “Tigress Gown” from Lybra, so I decided to just mix those 2 😉 The wonderful head piece with the flower heads wich were repeated at the bracelet and the chest part give some kind of a spring feeling even if they are black. The petals that run down over the face for me give a lightly mystic or dreamy looking attitude to the whole look.

Lybra & Finesmith 001a

Now the whole look became  bit too elegant for my actual mood and I remembered the amazing “Gacha Horns” that I got from a gacha at the Arcade. Those made the perfect contrast to the basic elegant look 😉 .

The amazing necklace as well was made for a gacha with a lot of different colors. Natzuka made those and as well some wonderful spring looking rings for her gachas at the SAVIAD Spring Fair.

And now please take  look at those evil long and sharp nails… aren’t they just cool?

They are made by Formanails. Formanails started to make nails for the Slink hands not too long ago and I already had a special about them. Ivi Bing keeps herself busy and brings more and more amazing designs. The latest ones are the “XXL” nails. With an inbuilt menu you can change the textures on them by touch and I really was happy when I found a black and white one that was just perfect for my todays look 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe for the BeStyle Gypset Market

Spring Flower Dress Pink

The BeStyle Gypset Market is a monthly event done by the BeStyle District. They have 2 different locations, one GOLD and one SILVER section. At the gold section you will find limited designs and the silver section has smaller and non limited creations to offer 🙂 .

I was very excited, when Linnda Scofield IMed me and asked me if I would like to be part of that event. The request was to create something spring looking in pastel colors. I decided to make the spring dress, wich already was a great success ina  very special color, wich willnot be available anymore after this month of the BeStyle Gypset Market. Since you all know about my pink allergy, I thought I can suffer for a limited time of tha color and so the “Spring Flower” dress in pink was born 😉 .

To match the “Spring Flower” dress in pink I made one of my “Coco” bags matching to the dress.

Wicca & Saz Corset Vendor

Today I am very excited to announce that I finally released my short series of corsets with matching jeans and bolderos 🙂 . It is a short collection of 6 different patterns and fabrics that iI was working on for quiet some time now. In RL I am addicted to corsets so it was a long time dream to make some in SL as well that would be kinda the style I could like to wear. Usually if you hear corsets many have only the fetish vision or a medieval look in their mind, but corsets can be so much more and they can be part of every day wear as well.

Corsets,Jeans & Vendor for Blog 001

A corset is a garment worn to hold and shape the torso into a desired shape for aesthetic or medical purposes (either for the duration of wearing this item, or with a more lasting effect). Both men and women are known to wear corsets, though women are more common wearers.

In recent years, the term “corset” has also been borrowed by the fashion industry to refer to tops which, to varying degrees, mimic the look of traditional corsets without actually acting as one. While these modern corsets and corset tops often feature lacing or boning and generally mimic a historical style of corsets, they have very little if any effect on the shape of the wearer’s body. Genuine corsets are usually made by a corsetmaker and should be fitted to the individual wearer. (Wikipedia)

In the fashion industry corsets became again more and more popular as sexy and modern accessories. And so I am happy to present my short mini corset collection in my store now 😉

I packed some full outfits but as well I offer all the corsets, jeans and bolero single, so that you can mix and match them how ever you like 😉 .

The pants have a special metal button that gets repeated at the bolero as well. On the first view the boleros are all black but if you take a closer look, each of that 6 different black jackets have a different pattern or feature round the zipper on the arms to match the jeans and corset they belong to. Certainly you can cross mix them as well.

The corsets all have a different texture and a certain style. Anyways if back laced or front laced or with straps and buckles, all of them come in the 5 standard sizes and are mesh made, same as the jeans and the boleros.

I hope you come over and take a look or try the demos and find one you like for your wardrobe 🙂 .
