Buccaneer – New Expressive Male Poses at Wicca’s Wardrobe!

WM - Poses Buccaneer Set

Not too long ago I had the honor to sponsor the opening show of the Autumn Symphony shows of Solo Evane with my poses. It was the first time I was asked and so I was quite a bit nervous πŸ˜‰ . Usually I make poses I need for my own pictures of blog, so this was something new to me, especially the male poses. It was a challenge for me to think of expressive and interesting poses for the guys and it was fun as well to make them πŸ™‚ .

The “Buccaneer Set” is one of the new male sets I made for my little store Wicca’s Wardrobe. I wanted to make some poses that are not just simple runway poses since I love it if the poses are expressing something. That is as well the reason for the name. A Buccaneer for me is a strong and powerful guy, so I thought the name matches the poses ;). Thank you Malicia for the help with the name πŸ˜‰ .

I am very happy and grateful that my brother Dahriel accepted, as I asked him if he would pose for the vendor. He made a kick ass avantgarde styling, what underlined the intention of the poses so well. Thank you for that and your time bro!

I recently moved my store to be together with Dahriel and Malicia. I was so happy and as well lucky as they asked me, if I would like to join them since I love both of them and as well love working with them. So I joined the Crazy Connection at the NEW sim.

Like always you can buy the poses single via the pose stand and as well as a fatpack with a little discount via picture with the fatpack sign πŸ˜‰ .

News by Mea Culpa and Wicca’s Wardrobe!

Mea Culpa Afrika Dings 001

Mea Culpa has moved! Back with a new look on a new location. At the new Mainshop you will find a lot of news and as well a special outlet place where you are able to purchase a few of the older creations and as well some single parts for mix and match stylings. If you wanna take a look – here is a taxi directly to the new Mea Culpa Mainstore: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Himmafushi%20Island/127/141/23

I am happy to showcase one of the latest releases from Mea Culpa – “Karasu Hebi”.

Mea Culpa Afrika Dings 002a

The “Karasu Hebi” outfit is an amazing surreal outfit with incredible textures and amazing huge and fashionable prims. The look kinda a snake that wraps up round your body and the laced textured full bodysuit with the golden ornaments really gives the whole outfit a very seductive and sexy touch. The headpiece as well is part of the outfit and completes the whole outfit to an amazing art piece.

I was very happy that I was allowed to wear this amazing outfit for the Autumn Symphony show from Solo Evane. It was a very exciting and special show to me, as I was allowed to sponsor the show with my own poses from Wicca’s Wardrobe, my new label. I made all the poses for the showcased Mea Culpa outfits, as well for the “Karasu Hebi”.

WM - Poses Constricted Set

I made the new “Constricted” set so that it goes well with all the prims and textures. Sometimes it is not easy to pose outfits with such huge prims without getting in trouble or always have your arms spread or high up in the air. I wanted some dramatic and still not too spread out poses for the outfit since it has an avantgarde attitude for me. The “Constricted” pose set does not only work for the “Karasu Hebi” outfit, you can try those poses with many other outfits, that are prim heavy just try them in my new store πŸ˜‰ If you wanna see… just take the limo πŸ˜‰ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/32/64/22

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Between LeeZu shifts with Malicia ;)

LeeZu Mal & Wicca 001

Thank goodness for flat shoes! Standing in a shop for hours makes you notice each single bone in your feet. Usually Mal and I relax pitying our poor feet after a shift at your fave Cafe. Mal has tea, I usually go for coffee. Today though we both showed off the wonderful Yukatan Pants, a new release by Leezu ….. and with the flat shoes we even had some energy left to snap some piccies for you.

To know more about Malicia’s styling you can take a look at her bloghttp://silkenmoon.wordpress.com/2013/09/23/a-sip-of-tea-after-work-flat-heel-heaven/

The “Yukatan” pants are one of the latest releases from LeeZu and again she didΒ  what I loved so much on some of the other designs of LeeZu. She combined pants and shoes. With mesh you always get trouble if you wanna add shoes. Sometimes the shoes get stuck in the pants or even they peek out of the pants sleeves. So what better solution you can have, than have the best matching shoes already together with the pants?. For the “Yukatan” pants LeeZu decided to add some flat, casual, urban looking boots. The details on them, like the buckles, straps and lines again show the skills and the dedication of LeeZu, that she puts in her designs.Β  Besides the new “Yukatan” pants I decided to go with one of my favourite jackets from LeeZu, the “Tasia” jacket.

The hair is one of the latest releases of EMO-tions. The “Brooklyn” hair is a short, casual and still smart-looking every day style. I am a short hair addicted anyways and the “Brooklyn” hair will be one of my favourites with the neat wisps that you have on top of a very modern and fresh looking hair style.

The cool belly tattoo is the new group gift from Silken Moon so you better run there and get it before it is gone πŸ˜‰

The amazing furniture and house that i used for the pictures comes from 22769. For the food fair they made wonderful bistro with all parts you need to get the perfect illusion of a sweet little bistro where you can take breaks from work and let your soul fly and chat with friends πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe at the Couturier’s Docks!

WM - Elegant Evening Set

Today’s post is very special for me πŸ™‚ . I was invited to be part of the Couturier’s Docks with my new brand Wicca’s Wardrobe. Some of you might know already that I started making poses for my blog posts and pictures. At some point people asked me why I would not sell them… and so my store Wicca’s Wardrobe was born πŸ˜‰ . I thought a lot of what kind of poses I would like to do, as I have many dear friends who make poses and as well there is a lot of pose stores on the grid already. So I decided not to make only runway poses. I wanted to do ‘Poses for Purposes’. Sets of 5 poses who always are made for a special purpose, like huge hats or cool handbags. Tha’s as well the reason, why all my pose sets carry kinda funny names as they always kinda tell what they are made for.

You can imagine, how happy and excited I was. when I got asked if I would like to be part of the Couturier’s Docks of Mila Tatham. The Couturier’s Docks are a special place at SaliMar, where all those amazing and popular designers sell special items, which are limited to 50 pieces each. For me it was – and is – a huge honor that I may be part of that. I wanted to create a very special set for this event.

It was kinda fate that, at the time when I was thinking what set I could make, I met a very dear friend of mine. Sazzy Nirpaw, in the past she was one of my students and over the time a wonderful friendship developed. She popped in my IMs and asked me if I could take a look at one of her stylings. She always dresses very classy and elegant but never boring what I really admire. As I saw her in that fabulous outfit an idea was born in my head for a pose set. I asked her if she would have some time to work with me on a pose set, that would go with her amazing outfit. She agreed and so we started working. After some time the “Elegant Evening Set” was born πŸ™‚ . Thank you so much Sazzy for your time and patience!

The “Elegant Evening Set” is a special set for… like the name says.. an elegant evening outfit, that as well works with a little clutch. The poses are not only safe and nice, they have some edges that let every fashionista shine with pride and self-esteem.

Only 50 sets of the “Elegant Evening Set” are available at the Couturier’s Docks and quite some already got sold. So if you wanna own your special “Elegant Evening Set”, make your way over to SaliMar, where the Couturier’s Docks are located πŸ˜‰ .

Incredible Sale at Silken Moon!!!

Sale posterSilken Moon

Today I was in Malicia Pythons office to take a look at her bloggers list since she asked me if I maybe could help a bit sorting and finding new bloggers for her brand. I went over her desk… and you know how desks of genius minds look… to find the list. While I was looking a picture fell into my hand with some hand scribbled note that Malicia did. Since one of my most huge weakness is being curious, I had to take a closer look…

UNBELIEVABLE!!! The note said that Malicia will have a special weekend sale for makeup and nails!?!

50% off for lipsticks and makeups of the Eclipse line and as well for the nails that work with the Slink hands… ok that’s quite a tempting offer!!!

While I was drooling over the pic and the note I heard steps in front of the door… damn Mal was coming back, probably she forgot something…

I grabbed the picture and stuffed it in the back pocket of my jeans as the door opened and Mal came in.

She looked at me wondering what I did here and I explained that I was looking for the bloggers list and tried to make an innocent face. Usually she discovers in between seconds if I did something I should not have

but she seemed to be already tired since it was way after her bedtime and she just forgot something in the office so I could get away with my innocent look and a secret in my back picket of my jeans πŸ˜‰

So mark this weekend in your calendar and make your way over to the Silken Moon Mainstore… you do not wanna miss that incredible sale!!!

Some Steampunk with LeeZu, EMO-tions & Finesmith

LeeZu Steampunk 001

Today I have the great pleasure to show you one of the latest releases of LeeZu. The “Deklannche” top is one of the latest additions to the new LeeZu Mainstore. I was looking for a styling for my LeeZu shift today and I wanted to use the “Deklannche” top in a different way. The top comes in various colors and each one has a HUD to it so you can even change and customize the fabric of the snake skin looking part.

LeeZu Steampunk 002

There is no alpha to it since it has so many parts where you can look through. An extra shadow layer as well is part of the top and you can use it if you are not running the SL shadows. The lines and the cream and brown colors brought me on that steam punk idea and I looked though my LeeZu folder what else I could add to make that imagination get real that built up in my head more and more. The “Heather” hot pants are very well mesh made short pants that totally matched the top and did not drag too much focus off the top πŸ˜‰ I looked a while at it and decided I need to find something top cover my belly since it looked too much girly like instead of what I had in mind. I looked though all my LeeZu tops until I remembered the “Lea Vivendi Pants” those pants are very high waisted and the waist part was justΒ  the part I was looking for. To cover my legs I chose for the “LaLun” tights and for the shoes I decided to go with my absolute favourites from LeeZu, the “Piccadilly Overknee Boots”.

LeeZu Steampunk 003

Now the base for the look was created and I had to find some cool accessories who underline and complete my imagination. I remembered the “Time Piece” of Finesmith. The amazing headpiece with all those little clocks hanging down from the branches. The cute butterflies make a wonderful contrast to the brown steam punk look. To make a smooth look for the part that is connected to the head yula Finesmith added some organic looking parts to give the whole head piece a touch of life, that totally makes that amazing contrast to the rest of the outfit and the scenery I chose for snapping.

The hair is made by Mirja Mills, owner and designer of EMO-tions. The “Jade” hair style is made of cool dreadlocks that are bind together to a kinda up-do look even if they have not a super elegant look, but I did not need an elegant up-do for this look so the “Jade” hair was just the perfect addition πŸ˜‰ .

For the jewelry I wanted just some bracelets that underline the style and not get too much into the focus. I chose the “Wanderer Bracelets” from League. The wooden pearls seemed to be the right choice for me.

LeeZu Steampunk 004

The skin still is my “Wicca” skin that Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon, made for me, but in one of the skin tones she made for her new Eclipse line. The “Lumee” tone is a very light and sophisticated tone and I asked Mal if I could have one version of my “Wicca” skin as well in that amazing pale tone. So if you want to try that amazing, smooth and classy and elegant lumee tone you just ned to try one of the amazing demos of the Eclipse skins at Silken Moon πŸ˜‰ .

GizzA – Burlesque Corset varied ;)

GizzA - Cadett in Red 001

Do you know the feeling if you think that the whole world is against you and every day something new stupid or bad happens… that’s how I feel lately. My doggie was bitten badly and since then she turned into a psycho after being my angel for 10 years. She seems to have a bad trauma now and it will need a lot of time and love to let her recover from that. My RL moving as well went not that smooth as I hoped and that holds me back a lot from being online and blogging. Many more small things added up to a point where I felt no power anymore. But as always it has to go on and so you mobilize a last time all what you have left and throw yourself into something that’s called life ;).

Yesterday finally I made 85% of my movement to the new apartment and so I just have 2 weeks left till I finally can leave this place here and start over new in my new appartment*happy dance*

I had a few time left last night and so I snapped a few pics so that I at least can blog something, after being so slow for a few weeks πŸ˜‰ .

GizzA - Cadett in Red 002

Today I would like to showcase my look I made for my GizzA workshift. The new “Burlesque Corset” got blogged quite a few times with amazing and beautiful pictures out of the Burlesque genre, so I wanted to to something different. With the red and gold version of the “Burlesque Corset” I came across the idea of a fashionable cadet look. I added the pants from the “Lordly” outfit as well from GizzA and the “Epaulette” shoulder parts that are available in various colors at the GizzA Mainstore from one of the gachas. The necklaces and chains are part of the “Epaulette” shoulder parts, so I skipped any kind of necklace to not overload the whole look. The amazing “Asia” bracelets with the leather parts, chains and watches were a good addition to complete my cadet look.

To add a female and sexy touch I put on the “Tall Leather Thigh Boots” from Slink. Then I wanted to wear one of those berets that make it even a bot more cadet looking. I looked all over but I could find none that matched in color nor did I like the shape of the most. I started a few ago to experiment with mesh and sculpties for designing clothes and I remembered that in one of those huge packs of sculpts there was a beret somewhere… ok.. i just will make my own one. I tried until I was satisfied with the texture, light and shadows and… tataaaaa my own beret that matched the look!

Couture News from Pure Poison

Pure Poison Absinthe+Finesmith Nova 001

Pure Poison Absinthe+Finesmith Nova 002

The black version of the “Absinthe” gown is an firework of textures and an amazing mix of modern looking extravagant prim parts. The slin gown is covered by this amazing straps and lines that as well go up and decorate the shoulders. I just chose the black version, but you can get the “Absinthe” gown in other colors as well πŸ˜‰ .

The wonderful head comes from LODE and is called “Bitter Sweet”. For the hair I used one of my new favourite hairs from booN. The jewerly are parts of the “Noya” set of Finesmith. I just skipped the necklace as the dress was alrealy making the cleavage relativly busy πŸ™‚ . The wonderful makeup, which so perfectly catches the shape of the hat is the “Bird” from White Widow.

If you cannot wait till I shocase all the rest of the Pure Poison Couture Collection, what I can understand, since it has so incredible outfits, just make your way to the Pure Poison Mainstore.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 08/31/2013 – Glamour Punk?

Yasum+LeeZu 001

Today again it was one on of the days where I did not plan to style something special… it just had happened during I sorted my ineventory ;).

Not too long ago I had a little chit chat with Azlyn Vaher, owner and designer of Yasum. I got her amazing
“Face Armor” mask, that she put in the Gacha Fair and I was lucky to pull the rare one while I was gambling at those gatchas. I had no special idea for that mask in that moment and sometimes things even get better when they lay around for a while, just like cheese or a good red wine πŸ˜‰ . Usually I do not sort those “I do not know yet” items in my inventory right away, I just leave them be where they are so every time when I open my inventory, I stumble over them and so, I keep them in mind better, than when I sort them in where they belong to.

Yasum+LeeZu 003

I put on that mask and while was wearing it, I kept sorting all the amazing stuffs I got and those I already blogged and was too lazy to sort in yet. That brought me to the amazing, sweet “Kitty Skirt” as well from Yasum. This short dress really is a cute base for a smart styling. I chose the black version with the light red accents and the red tartan pocket in the front. The “Kitty Skirt”Β  is top less so it starts right under the chest, so IΒ  had to find a top for it.

I was trying different kinds and in the end my decision fell on the “Lourdes” top from LeeZu. It is not a very new item of LeeZu but one that I really like and already was wearing a few times in all of its colors. The “Lourdes” top was perfect with the huge ruffles over the chest and the one line that leads up to a beautiful neck collar wich is ornaments with little flowers. The short dress and the ruffled top reminded me on my youth and the punky styles I loved so much, so decided to go towards that direction. With some Vivienne Westwood in my mind because of the tartan pattern I wanted to add some leggings since she is really well known for all her socks and leggings stuff and that she combines different fabrics that do not get together on the first view. First I tried some socks and ripped stockings but that became way to trashy for that what I wanted to go for. I tried more the cute side of tights and socks but that as well was not that what I was looking for. Again the choice fell on one of my long time favourites from LeeZu, the “Cat Tights”.

Yasum+LeeZu 005

To add a bit more I put the “Knee socks” with the little holes over the tights. To not go towards the cute look too much I added the “Triumph” boots made by [GOS]. The heavy boots gave a good contra to the sweet ruffles of the “Lourdes” top. The amazing tattoo comes from White Widow. The “Mission” tattoo has 2 options one low and one normal. I decided to go with the normal one as I remembered some cool bangles from Xplosion I got long ago. The red leather together with the silver metals and that 80s look of them, just perfect matched the look. The huge tunnels and the piercings for the ears, are part of the mesh ears from Mandala. With the HUD that comes with them yo can recolor the tubes, metals and gems to match your outfit.

Yasum+LeeZu 004

Now the question came towards a difficult point again… wich hair to choose? I went through my hair folder, wich is not that small. One after another and none really wanted to match. The I came across a folder from KMADD. I am not quite sure where that was from, but I remember it was a special event. In that folder was a male shape and some other things and the “Seneca” hairstyle. Probably it was meant for a male avatar but if you know me for a while you know, I do not care about that facts too much, I just wear what I like πŸ˜‰

A last look into the mirror… perfect… I feel like years ago again πŸ™‚

Second Life Skins: SilkenMoon – Diva

ad-vendor-diva

Silken Moon made a wonderful new skin not too long. The face of the Eclipse line is called “Diva” and she is in my view one of the best skins Malicia Python owner and designer of Silken Moon, ever made.

What caught my attention were the lips. Malicia made totally new lips for the “Diva”! Together with those wonderful realistic looking eyes and the cute-looking nose it is a wonderful addition to the Eclipse line.

Diva Face

When she asked me if I would like to pose for the vendor of her new skin I had not long to think about it – certainly I would like to!

As I arrived at Mal’s place, where she had rezzed the background she gave me the new skin in band new and very special tone. The new “Ivory” skin tone she created is a very sophisticated looking skin tone. For all who love the already existing skin tones of the Eclipse line – no worries the new “Diva” skin as well will be available in bisque, brulee, lumee, bousee and a special colored version, he ivory tone is just a brand new addition.

The “Diva” skins comes with amazing new lipsticks and even in the demo you have one free lipstick!

On top you will get a SLINK applier HUD for your mesh hands and feet to make

I love to pose for Mal’s vendors as she always gives me amazing challenges. I asked her what she had in mind in general for the “Diva”. She told me a few things and I just started styling. First I put on the “4 Minute” jacket on, since I know that Mal and me have a close liking for several things and I thought she might like it and she did ;). For the jeans, I chose my absolute favourite jeans from R:A:D, a brand what does sadly not exist anymore, but the designer is still around and I am sure, that if you really like them, Redclaw Inshan will sell them privately to you ;). Now the jacket and the jeans made a more casual look the Mal wanted it. She wanted a bit of a posh look for the vendor. I thought about it and remembered a wonderful blouse, wich I got ages ago at bijou. I am not even sure if the brand still exists but this blouse is like an evergreen for me. For the shoes I decided to go with the “Bonnie” boots from Redgrave, to underline the amazing feminine attitude that the skin has. For the hair I did know I want something short but as well it should not be too smooth and tight. I remembered the “Tidal” from exile, again a male hairstyle, but I do not care about that anyways if I matches my face and my stylings ;). After we looked at the styling we still missed something and all of a sudden I got the idea to put on a corset what should go with the blonde hair, the jacket buttons, the bracelets, the ornaments on the huge bag and the golden earrings, as well certainly with the skin tone.

After Malicia finished the pictures we had to laugh a lot after she said the outcome of the picture remembered her of Lady Diana :p .

So take a look for yourself and try the demo… like I said the demo has a wonderful free lipstick in it πŸ˜‰
