News at Glam Affair – Castalia and Eva show off their Beauty!

OMG! Glam Affair has new skins and they are so amazing… I really love them. So realistic and smooth… unbelievable!

The first skinline is called “Castalia” and it comes in 12 different make up…

All makeups you can think of are covered by the “Castalia” line. The face it self has very interesting features that make kinds character face. I’m sure it is not a skin for every shape but if you are willing to modify your face lightly you can create a very unique and amazing face with it. For me it was perfect i just put it on and was really in love with.

The colors for the lips and eyes are very stong and fresh ones. From nude over pink to red and also unusual colors, this skin line provides everything thing the heart asks forΒ  πŸ™‚

“Castalia” is available in different skintones also :). You can choose from natural, dark, light or tan to suit your character for the best πŸ˜‰

The second new skin by Glam Affair, called “Eva” is the more playful and sweet one for me. The lips are a bit bigger and I am sure they are great for making ‘pouting’ expressions πŸ˜‰

The makups are very glamorous and sophisticated. And the smokey eyes you can see in some of them give a very stunning touch πŸ˜‰

You also have a great choice of different seductive red and pink tones to become a mystical maneater πŸ˜‰

“Eva” is available in different skin tones also like dark, natural, light, tan & medtan πŸ™‚ So you can find the perfect one for yourself anyways wich skin type you are πŸ˜‰ The bodies of both skins are amazingly made with such great details and the right shadows and lights to make them very realistic.

Another sweet thing I found in ‘The Dressing Room’… a sweet and neat version of the “Eva” skin with the name “Eva – Winter Make Up”

You really should make your way to the Glam Affair store and try out the demos… I really fell in love with and I am sure you will find one that you like also πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Future Fashion…

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Lately I had a strange mood and was totally been drowned into futuristic and cyberpunk looks… For a strange reason it catched me more and more and I decided to let you be part of my journey into that πŸ˜‰

I have to thank Harsch Sharktooth and Redclaw Inshan to follow me on my trip and pose with me for a few pics πŸ˜‰

(Models: Redclaw Inshan, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

First look ..lemme call it “Futuristic Red”… has a big part of cyberpunk also, but lets take a closer look at the 2 outfits πŸ™‚

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The basic of my first outfit was is the “X – Suit” from Graves Leather. It shows off a lot of skin and was a nice possibility to also wear some big tattoos πŸ˜‰ For the boots I chose the “Cyberboots” from R:A:D. They are fully color changeable for all the parts that are shown here in red. Also you can decide from different signs that decorate the boot tips. The bracelets and the mask are made by Nibiru Productions and are color changeable too. Te spine plugs are made by Toxic Orange and are color changeable with menu driven script as well. The hair I found at the Stringer Mausoleum and is called “Rooster Hawk”

(Model: Redclaw Inshan, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The male outfit is showcased by Redclaw Inshan, designer of R:A:D and he chose the same mask called “Optical Argument” as I did… actually it was the other way round…he had it first but oh well… πŸ˜‰ The pants are the great “Male Distressed Leather Pants” by with a wonderful prim belt that has an amazing realistic look. The boots are made by Bobbysocks and are called “Anarchy”. The cool black “Devious Trench” is made by by Spider Productionscoat and you can wear it with or without the spikes that you can see on the shoulderparts.

(Model: Redclaw Inshan, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

For the perfect cyberpunk look the “Cyber Heart” made by Mennisco Volitan for sure should not be missed. The spine implants are the same as I was wearing and yes this time I had them first… I guess πŸ˜‰ The mechanical “Cyber Droids Hand” comes from [:: Black Heart ::].

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

For the second look Harsch Sharktooth helped me for the pictures and chose a wonderful futuristic looking outfit…

(Models: Harsch Sharktooth, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The main color oft this 2 looks definitely is the silver & teal mix & match. Both of us were using cyberskins from LionSkins made by Lion Jonesford.

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Again the suit is the “X – Suit” from Graves Leather made by Jackie Graves. This time i chose the “Tech” spine implant from Toxic Orange and colored it in teal to match the great Griddie hair. Th guns are from Breach and the “Climatix” mask is done by AVZ. For he mask you can choose if you wanna show breath particles and also the color of a few parts. The bracelets are the same as I used for my first outfit but this time also colored in teal. The boots are the fantastic “Dragon Boots” made by R:A:D. Those boots you can change in 5 basic preset colors and chains and spikes you can change to every color you can thing of as the HUD has an amazing color field to play with πŸ˜‰

(Model & Photographer: Harsch Sharktooth)

Harsch is wearing the Elixier “Latex Hipsters” pants in camo black combined with the Elixier “Latex Sheer Raincoat-Clear”. For the neck collar part he took a part from the Miamai “Lulu” outfit. “Lulu” is part of the Black Label Collection of Miamai. Also from Miamai is the attachment he chose for the right arm. The armwarmer is part of the “Kingdom M Grey shirt”. For the boots he chose the “Homme_EngineerBoots” from COCO in black. The hair he found at the Stinger Mausoleum. Last but not least the gloves… they are from Xplosion and named “Skull Gloves”. Did you ever see such a cute android before πŸ˜‰

(Models: Redclaw Inshan, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Futuristic GREEN! πŸ˜‰ It was just too tempting to do a full green in green on green pic*giggles*…

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

This time I combined the “Tribal Latex Suit” from Creepy Latex with the “JG2 Body” in the short version again from Graves Leather. The boots are again the “Cyber Boots” from R:A:D. The mask for this outfit comes from AVZ and the Visor is part of the Graves “G121 Black & White- Zero” outfit from Graves Leather. The color changing spine tubes are made by Toxic Orange. The “Cyber Hawk” hair style in a poison green, I found at DV8 πŸ™‚ and for the earrings I chose of my favourite ones made by Ticky Tacky.

(Model: Redclaw Inshan, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Redclaw Inshan chose for the main part one of the outfits he made by himself πŸ˜‰ Pants, shirt, boots, wristbands, jacket and beltΒ  are part of the “Cyber Biohazard” outfit of R:A:D and you can find it in his Mainstore πŸ™‚ The mask is the same I was wearing πŸ˜‰ and for the shades he chose one of his favourites, the “Halo” made by Eryn Republic, designer of ERD πŸ™‚ I never saw such amazing detailed glasses before and I have to admit I bought me some glasses from there as well πŸ˜‰

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

My glasses from Eryn Republic Designs are called “Streemlyne” and I was really impressed about the service and help I found with the fitting of my glasses. The outfit I am wearing on this picture is a very old one I found during cleaning my inventory and it reminded me lightly of kinds ‘Matrix’ or ‘Trinity’ outfit πŸ˜‰ It is from Gothika and I am not sure if it still available or already gone, maybe you have to take a look by yourself if you are interested in πŸ˜‰

I hope you enjoyed my futuristic cyber trip and maybe I could show you my version of future fashion πŸ˜‰ A special thanks goes to Harsch Sharktooth & Redclaw Inshan, who had the patience and invested the time to style and pose for me πŸ˜‰

stay styled,

Wicca

Buisness vs. Private ;)

For longer I had a sweet couple pose idea and now I finally found the time and inspiration πŸ˜‰ For the business pics I used poses of the “Photoshoot” series made by Glitterati and for the private ones the “Romance” set by Body Talking.

The female business look styling I will have detailed here on this blog post, for the male one I just can guess what it was but not in all details πŸ˜‰

As the basic I chose a wonderful outfit from bijou called “Couture” The grey-black skirt combioned with a white blouse and that huge ruffles made a perfect basic for a female business outfit that also has a very female and stylish touch. For this outfit the “Stylus” pumps from N – Core looked perfect for me. High heels with a sweet ankle strap in simple black.Not to overdo it I just added the black “Lick Me” earrings from Ticky Tacky and the “7Luck” bangles from Mandala. For the hair I wanted some strict looking to underline the business theme but still some that is me ;). I chose the “Wilma” hair attachment from Baiastice that perfectly goes with the “Pulchra” skin on pale and the red hair base. The male suit we found at Hoorenbeek. The hair came from Mad.

After a hard-working day it is nice to have something comfortable you can slip on and no it don’t have to be the PJ or the jogging suit *grins*

I like jeans and some kinda cool top. So I do not have to stick on the couch if I suddenly feel that I wanna go out for a coffee or some like that. For the actual season maybe the white tank top from Maitreya is a little freezy so I wrapped around one of that great “Shirt-tied-around-Waist” done by COCO. The jeans that I am wearing for this post are the “Robin” jeans made by LeeZu. This jeans are really great made. All little seams you can see and for the leg sleeves you have 2 different options to wear. Also the “backside” is really great made. I rarely has such a nice shaped back side in a jeans. The 2 little pockets there have exactly the right size to for a really sexy ass πŸ˜‰ The male jeans come from LeeZu too. As we know LeeZu for the jeans are totally made with a lot of details that let the jeans really look very realistic!

This pose above is out of the “Romance” set by Body Talking, as all my “casual-private” ones in this post. It made the right look for a relaxing time for 2;) Too lazy to change my hair and skin I just kept the “Pulchra” skin with the red hairbase and the matching hairpiece “Wilma” from Baiastice.

A big thank you goes to Magnus Stovall for being patient with me during the whole shooting πŸ˜‰ I really enjoyed doing this pics and the making of will stay in my mind πŸ™‚ as something special.We really had a good time and lots of fun!

New Releases and a unbelievable Christmas Special at Mea Culpa!!!

Yes it is true, Tatanka Kaligawa, designer of Mea Culpa, again created 4 new designs for Mea Culpa. 2 of them I want to show you today. The other 2 left I will for sure blog here also so keep tuned!

The first one I wanna showcase today is the “Bionic Symbiosis” which we can see also in the first picture above πŸ™‚

“Bionic Symbiosis” is a wonderful gown that again shows the incredible skills and ideas of Tatanka Kaligawa if it comes to new ideas of fashion and couture. The dress it self has a very tight dress and skirt beginning that ends in a firework of huge flexible prims the more it goes down to the ground. The color is made in a wide scale of green and black. The layers are not made of a simple plain texture, it is a wonderful combination of different ornaments and colors that make this gown to something special, to a piece of art we know the designs of Mea Culpa for. The wrist sleeves are also decorated with 2 huge wrist prims that repeat the main theme of the dress in a very interesting way. All the attached prims are kinds wavy and for sure the huge and extraordinary hat add another ‘wow’ effect to the whole design.

The second new release is called “Wind of Change” and it really brings in some fresh wind onto the fashion industry πŸ˜‰

‘This gown is made for a real ladie’s body… very elegant but also extravagant! The awesome combination of pink and black will let every fashionistas heart beat higher πŸ˜‰


Let’s take a closer look on all that wonderful details… the basic skirt layer is an opaque tight pencil skirt that goes down to the ground. Spikes decorate the creation on the right hand side leg and add a lightly dangerous and goth style. The top under the jacket has a light transparent around the basic laced texture. The jacket reminds me on an old english uniform jacket even if it is made like a modern bolero jacket πŸ˜‰ A huge, pink neck collar the puffy arm sleeves and the wonderful hat set this design also for a perfect winter outfit! at th belly button you have a nother detailed prim attachment with a huge purple ge in its center. If you take a look from the side or back you will realize how big that flexible black parts in your back are! The hat has a fur seam and the spikes are repeated from a few tentacle looking long and flexible parts that are longer on the right side then on the left of the hat..again a nice non symmetric detail… πŸ˜‰

If you look at the texture of the jacket you can see that the Mea Culpa designs are really more than just clothing that every single part is made with love to the detail. All filigree black ornaments the shading of colors, the lights and shadows… simply amazing!

As I said that are only 2 of the newest designs of Tatanka Kaligawa…so stay tuned the other 2 I will review soon πŸ˜‰ If you cannot wait you can also peek at the Mea Culpa Mainstore!

Now for something special… Mea Culpa decided to have a Christmas Special! Every Wednesday there will be 2 gowns set down to 50%!!! Yes you heard right… half prize! Also one pairs of shoes will be 50%. All 2 items are available 7 days before they change again on the next Wednesday till christmas.

Show Review of Angel Dessous and PurpleMoon

Last Sunday I was walking a show for Envision that featured designs of Angel Dessous, PurpleMoon and hair from Tukinowaguma. I really enjoyed my outfits and just wanted to show them πŸ˜‰

My first outfit was from Angel Dessous and is called “Lian” here shown in the color ‘nightflower’. This great asian design leads to dreams with all its wonderful details and accessories…

The basic blue toned texture is full of wonderful little ornaments in blue and green tones. The gown looks parted in 2 parts one lower skirt and one upper that starts with that great prim attachment in the front, wich is lightly unsymmetrical to the right hand side. Another great attachment we find can see on the chest. Sweet little light ruffled parts make the seam of the top and only one neat line over the right shoulder connects the font and back of the dress. For sure the huge and great head part is one of the highlights for this dress and underlines the asian character perfectly. For the jewelry I chose the incredible “Victorian Secret” earrings from Finesmith. For the skin I used one of the new Glam affair ones out of the “Castalia” line in the natural tone. The lips are a different layer that blackliquid gave me once and this lips matched the outfitΒ  perfectly. The hair comes from Tukinowaguma and is called “Princess” in ebony.

The second outfit I was allowed to showcase came from PurpleMoon and is called “Queen of Hearts”. The name is program for this neat dress ;).Β  A short and very sexy dress. Poulet Koenkamp again shows us her amazing creativity if it comes to designing. The main color of this dress for sure has to be red πŸ˜‰ and it is not just a simple plain texture… way not…it is a firework of red tones and glitter and glimmering shades! The top is made like a corset with bare shoulders that let the possibility for great jewelry like the “In the Flash – Shpitz” from Finesmith.

The great “Disturbia Collection” veil and the “Sweet Cocktail” bracelets I am wearing also are from Finesmith πŸ™‚ Thanks to Yula who has those amazing ideas for extravagant jewelry!!! A total ‘head turner’ is the big, huge head-piece that also carries little, neat hearts to underline the theme of the dress and to repeat the floating hearts that surround the little, short balloon skirt.

5 big roses decorate the higher forehead and make also an amazing detail of the whole outfit! The “Metallic Silver Nails” are made by PurpleMoon as well as the “Kis” hair style that matches wonderful to the whole outfit πŸ™‚

My 3rd and last outfit for that show was also from PurpleMoon and it was one of the amazing bridal gowns – “Nefertiti”

This wonderful white piece of art is another masterpiece of Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon.Β  A wonderful, dreamy flexible veil goes down in the back nearly to the hips. The top is decorated with amazing detailed ruffles at the chest. The dress it self starts very tight and shows off the perfect shaped body of the bride πŸ˜‰Β  The more it goes to the ground the wider it becomes and a nother train that follows your steps over the ground smoothly.

The “Metallic Silver Nails” and the “Era” hairstyle here in platinum are also from PurpleMoon. Earrings and bracelets are again from Finesmith. The skin also is from the Glam Affair “Castalia” line

I hope you enjoyed my show review πŸ˜‰ If you wanna see more of the great designs made byAngel Dessous,Β  PurpleMoon, Finesmith or Tukinowaguma, just take the next free limo to their mainstores.

Head Up Guys…Attention*drumroll*… New Male Suit at R:A:D!!!

Attention guys..lately I catched Redclaw Inshan, designer of R:A:D – Red Alert Design, wearing his newest creation.. and for sure I had to snap it πŸ˜‰ we ladies always want you guys dressed fashionable πŸ˜‰ so take a look at the new R:A:D “Dragon Suit”!

The “Red Dragon” is an amazing black suit with red asian ornaments that break the basic black texture in a fantastic way. No more boring black suits for the fashion loving guy πŸ˜‰ With this suit you definatly will turn heads and show character! The suit basically is made of pants, shirt, waistcoat and jacket… and now…also the shoes are included! If you take a closer look you can see the brilliant texture with the great folds that really give this suit a very realistic look. Not only made with a plain black texture, the lights and shadows are perfect set! It really seems the texture fits every movement and pose… simply awesome!

Lets get rid of the jacket to see the great waistcoat πŸ˜‰ Made with an amazing detailed texture lightly asian looking, this vest really caught my eye. Like a trade mark for the suit every part of the outfit has one asian ornament on it as we can see here on the left side of the chest in black. The tiger and dragon ornament really makes a great eye catcher on the waist coat.

If you take off the waistcoat… and take a closer look you will see that also the shirt carries different asian ornaments on the chest and the back. If you take a very close look you also can see how filigree the label is embed into the ornament itself πŸ™‚ The shirt also is made with an amazing texture that shows the folds very detailed and perfectly. The light pine-stripes that decorate the short again show the eye for the detail ofΒ  the designer Redclaw Inshan. What caught me here, was the neck collar.. usually I know the conventional one..but this one is different.. and as you know I like the “different things” *winks*.Β  The collar is very cool surrounding the neck fully closed with a little button on the font that continues the button line of the shirt itself :)… the eye for the detail makes the good designs πŸ˜‰ The pants also carry an asian sign to underline the style of the whole suit ;), so the asian signs go over all parts like a red line πŸ˜‰

Nearly not to believe even the shoes are part of that great outfit and matching every color the suit comes with! Also decorated with an asian ornament on the top of the shoe this shoes are a totally eye catcher too! For sure the belt that you can see on the next picture also is included to the outfit πŸ˜‰

For now I saw 3 different colors, the “Red Dragon”, the “Purple Dragon” and the “Silver Dragon”… but I am sure if you really need or want another color… you can contact the designer and see if you can make a good deal for another color as well πŸ˜‰

All parts of the outfit comes in all layers you need to mix and match every possibility!!!

Overall I would take such a sharp dressed man for a night out with me πŸ˜‰ If you wanna see all the other great designs made by R:A:D simply take the TAXI (or click HERE http://slurl.com/secondlife/LM%20Maldives/56/198/22) and take a look by yourself..you will see it is worth it πŸ˜‰
