Maven Haus – Fresh, young, modern, avantgarde!

I had the great honor to meet Elaera Maven, owner and designer of Maven Haus as I stopped by at his store. He was very kind and showed me around. I have to say..amazing creations! Very high fashion and couture and each piece something special!

I am happy that I can show you a few of his amazing designs today 🙂 In the first pic we see a combination of the “Whole lot of Sass” and one of his great pairs of leggings called “Aquatic” for the color.

The dress is mainly made of a beautiful lace. only the hem of the skirt has a solid texture that is mixed with different colors and shades. to cover the private sots of the chest there is a t-shirt layer added 😉 I chose to wear the “Aquatic” leggings to that cause the colors matched perfect to the texture of the bottom of the skirt 🙂

The skin is one of the newest releases of Maven Haus. “Chamelon” is this colorful creation called and shows that even colors can be high fashion and couture!

The second dress is called “The Waiting Widow”…

A long elegant dress basically made of 2 prim attachments… the skirt and the corset with the huge neck collar. The skirt is made of many amazing ruffles that give the extra ordinary touch. In opposite the corset and the neck collar are made straight. The ruffles are repeated on the little necklace looking black part round the neck and on the top of the chest.

The skin I used for this outfit is also a creation of Maven Haus and one of the group gifts that are located on the left sat the store if you enter. It is named “Frostbite” and is a great combination of grey, black and white for the makeups and lips.

If it comes to accessories, Maven Haus also provides extravagant ones like the “Pearl Moncole”. A sweet monocle that is available in different color combinations. I used for this post the ‘silver – black’ version, but it comes in many different options in black, gold and silver for the basic and different combinations for the top part.

As I  was mentioning before, Maven Haus has great group gifts also… I cannot skip them 😉

The great “Splash” dress is one single prim that makes the whole dress and unbelievable but true… it is a gift for the group members! Also the great “Vertigo” leggings, you can see in my last pic. With the great “Frostbite” skin, whats also a group gift you have a full outfit and just have to add hairs and shoes and you are ready to go out as a real fashionista 😉

Maven Haus is definitely a brand I will have a close eye on in the future and I am excited what creations he will bring next!

Hair-Mania at Baiastice!!!

In one of my last posts I had the great new Baiastice skin “Pulchra” with the red hair attachment and hairbase (->here). But I wanted to give all the new hairstyles an extra place on my blog and also show different colors 😉 For today we have the new releases, or better the whole collection of the new Baiastice hair attachments…

Lets start with the 8 latest releases here shown in blonde. “Giselle” a smart and short ponytail for daily use. The ears are free and let much room for earrings. “Eva” is a very long and sexy ponytail. This extra long hair will turn heads and it is amazing flexible. “Melita” is a sweet girly hairstyle that also goes to nearly every outfit. Sweet wisps cover the sides and peek to the front view. “Ingrid again is more smart and a bit more huge then “Giselle”. Perfect for all the girls that love the wilder look.

And we keep the ‘wild thing’ style with “Spagna” and Spagna 2″ “Spagna decorates your back head as a lion’s mane. Dreamy flexible it follows every movement! “Spagna 2” is close to the “Spagna” hairstyle but it goes more to the side as a non symmetric style. “Vizzy” has wonderful color decorations added to the short knot on the backside of the head and on the fore head as sweet bangs. “Wilma” is one that I like a lot. A non symmetric long ponytail with a wonderful knot in the beginning. It is perfectly flexi and follows every move that you do.

A bit longer available are the following hairstyles that I snapped in black…

“Isis” has 2 different sizes in the pack. The one you can see here and one that s a bit smaller. The cool mane is made flexi and it looks very cool if it moves after you 😉  “Woopi” goes with all kind of outfits, anyways if casual or formal. The ponytail is close to the back of the head and the bottom end in made flexible. “Marie” perfect for every dress or gown, but also for every casual like a cool jeans outfit. “Malvi”  would take you a lot of time if you would have to style it in RL *winks* the amazing arrangement is a little piece of art on the back of your head.

The same counts for “Agnes”… anyways what style this hair style always will fit. With “Xena we again have an awesome non symmetric ponytail in a lightly tube shape. The bottom is flexi made. “Boop” is the perfect hairstyle for an elegant gown. The big ribbon on the top and the wonderful updo in the back make this hairstyle an absolute extravagant and elegant one. “Shepa” is a wonderful straight hairstyle like a knot but  way bigger to the back. It goes lightly up at the end and makes it to something special. I like this one especially for geometric, avant-garde and straight stylings.

“Fiona” again is some for the smart and wild girls who dare to be different. the back-end is flexible and it goes really sweet into the forehead. “Eolion” again is kinda knot on the back of your head but it goes out to the back. the beginning looks wrapped around and the end very complicated twisted… simply great 🙂 “Lucrezia” again is a perfect updo for every elegant dress or gown. “Moira”, the long high ponytail for all who love long hairs. It falls down awesome in the back and starts higher on the back top of the head.

With “Carla” we have the classic knot that we all know from ballet or business outfits. “Donatella” is decorated with an amazing hairband. The hairband is modifiable and you can change the colors if needed. “Magda” looks close to “Lucrezia” but it is not that far in the back and you have sweet wisps that decorate the front of the head. “Arisa” is the classic wild ponytail. Not flexi made you will never loose the style 😉

I am sure, you will find your favourite hairstyle if you make your way to the Baiastice beauty shop. All hair styles are available in black, different blond, red and brown shades.

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Red against Green?

Lately I was in a very strange mood and I was thinking about something strong… I wanted colors *grins* I took my Ohmai “Contour” body suit as a basic to play with strong colors. First I remembered about an old corset that I bought once from Trilobite, the “Leather V Underbust” in verde. Perfect, that makes a nice waist 😉 So now what goes with the green and is as strong…maybe some red? The “Siren” boots from Hoorenbeek are the perfect contra *grins*

With the “Contour” jacket from Ohmai the look was perfect…

For the skin I chose one make the new “Trinity” skin from Redgrave. The fantastic eye makeup was done by White Widow. It is the green version of the new “Wings” face tattoo from Julie Hastings.

Suddenly I met Arisia.. she saw me, yelled at me to do the pictures for the new “Wicca II” set and she told me right to go with this styling… said… done 😉

And again I had the great honor to be the model for the newest release of Body Talking – the “Wicca II” set.  🙂

Finally, after few months, she can release the second part of the “Wicca Merlin Set”. This set of 10 poses is a casual yet high fashion with that fierce touch that I really love!

For both – “Wicca I” and “Wicca II”, Body Talking made different variations to match all outfits and shapes 🙂

Soleil – Bautiful and colorful :)

Not long ago I found a nice gift box in front of my door..I was very excited and took it in opening it, on top there was a nice letter of ColeMarie Soleil, the designer of Soleil.  She told me about her new shop opening…I noted that down in my calendar. Then I looked in to the box.. and there were so nice outfits in it… I just pulled out a few and tried them on… I definitely have to show you a few of them 😉

The fist one was called “Miss Little Sunshine” and it is a great outfit in amazing colors! (look at the pic above ;)) Yellow and green are the dominant colors for this outfit.

As a wonderful accessorie you have the flower that is attached to the head as a hair jewelry. This dress is really a “Miss Little Sunshine” and honors its own name 😉

The second one I want to show you has the sweet name “Lotus D’Anley”…

For sure it does not have to be a ballet dress but it was so tempting to make the pictures with it like this. The short black dress looks very classy and formal. The body is covered by a stunning lace texture in the front and the skirt, a very aerial one caresses your legs with every step you take The cest is decorated with an amazing laced prim part that carries a wonderful white diamond looking gem in the middle 🙂

Soleil…definitely a shop I have to visit soon to see what else they have for me 😉

NOH8

(Models left to right: Arisia Ashmoot, Tandra Parx, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Kaliope Faith)

On November 4, 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT community.

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska (http://www.bouska.net) and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by the prop8 and with the words “NOH8” painted on their cheeks in protest.

(Model: Tandra Parx, Photographer: Kaliope Faith)

Nearly two years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 5,500 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate expanding its reach. The campaign that began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and now Second Life community is also joining. A humble effort to strengthen the voices and fight for the rights of those who are victims of mere prejudice.
