Dark Vision

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you’re searching for the light?
Sometimes when you’re scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You’ve sensed that something’s watching you
[Iron Maiden]

Challenge Today: Combine Sweet Shoes with a Bow and Scary Gloves with Teeth & Tongue!

Lately I do have a lot of fun to give myself little ‘challenges’ for my styles and trying to complete the task. I thought about a way, how I can re invent my view on my blogging pictures. Certainly we do have our ‘duties’ too with deadlines and blogging rules, but I do not wanna see it just as a job. I realized if I just do pictures without any special thoughts behind them they start looking the same. I do not want to have the same look over and over again and those little challenges as well remind me what I do have in my inventory. After 10 years of blogging, you easily can loose track of what you have, but with little challenges and the fact that you force yourself to not just buy new accessories, but use what you already got, it really gets an interesting aspect again. Plus it has another great advantage, you stumble over things you would never wear again, as they are outdated or used too often already and you can just delete those and make room for new stuff πŸ˜‰
Actually todays challenge was a fun one, as I really could go crazy again. Do you know that, if you got something because you likedΒ  it and then you have no clue what you can do with it? That was what happened to me with the cool “Koronay Veil” from cinphul. I saw it and thought I need to have that and then I was sitting and staring at it a little frustrated, as nothing wanted to come to my mind besides that I love it. Sometimes you have to put things aside until they talk to you πŸ˜‰ This happened today while I was trying to combine those awesome, sweet “Desir Stilettos” from Poison Rouge and the kick ass, uber cool “Voracity Gloves” from Cubic Cherry. I do have an addiction to scary, dark stuffs – and that felt like it could go directly into that direction.
As you can see.. it did :p

β€œOh, are you doing magic? Let’s see it, then.”

[J.K Rowling – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone]

Like I did mention in my last post, the “World of Magic” event sadly is over, but I still want to post all those amazing things – it gives me the feeling it would still going on :p . I am sure you will find all of the creations at the main stores of all brands by now.

This time I have the whole scene built out of designs of the event and for the clothing I as well only used items from the “World of Magic” except the shoes.

I love Trouble Dethly’s events, he always picks interesting themes and does invest a huge effort in the sims and event places and builds. What I do love as well are his ‘Fashion Theaters”. To me that is the future of fashion shows in Second Life, as most of the main grind users are sick and tired of boring runway shows. Every thing has its time and realistic, real life like looking fashion shows had their time in the past. When they were new, many people went there and the audience was more than just 10 to 15 models and designers. I remember times, when we had to cap sims at 45 people, to make sure shows could run smoothly, or we even had to have 2 different sims beside each other – one for the audience and one for the models. Those times are gone. I really think there were tooΒ  many of those shows in a short time. Certainly there are a few agencies left who still try to do shows, but designers as well found a different way for marketing with all the monthly events. I would not choose one over the other, both ways have/had their advantages and times.

The “Fashion Theater” that Trouble more or less invented in Second Life, combines fashion shows and theater. Usually we have different scenes like in a real theater, and in the beginning of each scene the credits getting read out before the actual scene starts. So it is as well informative about fashion, designers get highlighted and used decor gets it’s spotlight, but at the same time it is entertaining with the story itself. Even as a model – I do have to admit – it is a lot of fun as you prepare different, it is a new challenge. You style up like you would do for a normal fashion show, but with posing you have to be way more creative and it is way more work intense to find the right poses, or even short animations, for the story that is going on, as your character has certain “tasks” to implement in terms of acting what the story determines.

Thereafter was the first Fashion Theater I did and it was a huge success. Back then we did a post apocalyptic version of the ‘Taming of the Shrew”. The story was adapted to the different genre and lightly changed, but the essence was the same. The last one we did was “The Tale of the Three Brothers”, an adaption or a tribute to the wizarding fairytale told to young witches and wizards in the world set by JK Rowling. Within canon, it is believed to have been written by Beedle the Bard and published as part of his works called “The Tales of Beedle the Bard.” Most believe it to be a story that teaches children the virtue of humility and wisdom. Others, feel that it is in reference to the Deathly Hallows. For the Potter fans, the concept made it’s debut in the seventh book and are considered three highly powerful magical artefacts.This time we had a very small cast, but we had tons of fun.

I would like to thank Silly Avro, Luka Benton, Sungyoung Holloway, Redclaw Inshan and Trouble Dethly for an amazing time, lot of fun rehearsals and 3 wonderful evenings of acting. Trouble had the most work since he wrote the whole thing and had to coordinate our chaos troupe and he did a hell of a job with that.

I can’t wait for the next one and I do not want to tell too much yet but… I have a feeling it will have to do something with doing a tribute to GoT and I will keep my fingers crossed to be casted as the Dragon Lady!

Fantasy Dreams with Wicca’s Wardrobe

Miniel 1

Today I would like to showcase one of our latest releases. The “Miniel” outfit is available at the actual round of The Fantasy Collective (TFC).

Miniel 9

For today I chose the blue/brass version of the outfit, as it looked the best in the wooden environment I chose for my pictures. At the event you will find 5 different colors for the outfit.

The body is decorated with some armor looking parts as well as with some very filigree chains. The cool arm and leg armor is part of the whole “Miniel” outfit too.

Miniel 7

When I saw the “Eva” wings from NeverWish, I totally fell in love with them. They matched so perfect in style and color to the “Miniel” outfit.

Miniel 5

The “Eva” wings are incredible detailed and wonderful textured, little wings, that fit to many different looks. With the delicate roses and the wonderful filigree metal shapes they are a must have for every fantasy wardrobe. The wings do have a HUD to recolor the wings and metals separately.

Miniel 3

The cool “Nanina” hair was made by EMO-tions. The hair is made of many little braided parts, that are non symmetrical and have an awesome high top part.

The boots are as well from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The “Inara” boots with the little golden spikes and chains totally rocked the style and the blue version of the ‘Chic Edition’, even matched the color of the “Miniel” body suit.

Back in Black with Miamai

Miamai & EMO-tions 001

Today I have something special. The “Arawn” outfit from Miamai. Now many of you will think, that you already know this outfit and that it would be quite old… Partwise you are right as this is one of the best sellers of the Miamai Black Collection. But with the moving of the mainstore, Monica Outlander, owner and designer of Miamai, updated some of her best sellers for the new mesh body parts like slink hands and feet, phat azz or lola appliers.

To pimp the “Arawn” outfit I used one of the latest releases from Enfant Terrible, the “Caelens Armor” shoulder parts in black. The cool “Aidan” hairstyle comes from EMO-tions and the “Creature Glasses” I made myself for my storeΒ  Wicca’s Wardrobe.

To complete the look, I used the “Tall Leather Thigh Boots” made by Slink in black.

Mea Culpa goes Fetish Fashion!

As I promised in my last Mea Culpa post, there is another amazing outfits of the new Mea Culpa X-Treme line. Tatanka Kaligawa himself named it Fetish Fashion and created a new line beside the Avantgarde and Couture designs in his store.

Again we can see the basic fabric is kinda latex and for the “Black Mamba” we have those wonderful long and flexible tentacles all over. What caught my eye is the cool hat that looks very stylish to the whole outfit . A very sexy touch is given by the body and the opaque stockings that are held by garters and show lots of skin πŸ˜‰

The absolute perfect jewelry for this outfit in my opinion is the “Noir” set from Finesmith Designs. The lashes are as well part of the “Noir” set of Finesmith Designs and go well along with the collar, the earings and the nails of the same collection.

New Collection at Glam Affair!!! Ladies grab your purse ;)

Glam Affair brought out their new NERO collection and I am happy to show you one by one all oft amazing and fantastic outfits! And for sure I would like to show you those amazing boots, that Shae Sixpence nearly forced me to buy πŸ˜‰ The boots I found at NeurolaB Inc and they are called “Fatality Black Boots” They totally caught me as they are really extraordinary, fierce and crazy like I am πŸ˜‰ They reach over the knees and come in 3 sizes. You should be able to use the alpha layers as you as well can have matching arm shields and all are made for the V2 feature with the alpha layer πŸ˜‰ If you take a closer look at the feet itself …. *drools* … I never saw such fierce boots before. you have no heel, but the sharp edge of the toes is “curved” back to make a little realistic vision that you are able to walk on them anyhow πŸ˜‰ The boots are available in more colors than black so maybe you wanna make your way to the NeurolaB Inc Mainstore and take a look by yourself πŸ˜‰

But now to the outfit itself…. “Nell”

“Nell” is one ofΒ  7 new releases from Glam Affair. A wonderful, sexy and stunning outfit perfect for special moments or as well to turn heads πŸ˜‰ I have to admit..usually ther is no musical note to cover the right chest… but I tried to make it PG for the blog πŸ˜‰ The outfit itself is just the half body that covers the belly and the pelvis as well as the backside. For the top you have a non symetric part that goes down lightly at the back of the neck in form of a little triangle. In the front it goes down a little more and covers the left side of the chest. It is as well decorated with an amazing flower part.

For jewelry and nails for sure I took some amazing art pieces made by yula Finesmith, incredible designer of Finesmith Design. The earrings are part of the “Inspired by Valeria” limited set, the collar is the ” Inspired by Elyna”. The fingernails are as well from Finesmith Design.

As I said, “Nell” is just one of 7 amazing new releases of Glam Affair and I will show all of them step by step πŸ˜‰

“X-Tina – not herself tonight 2” is the club version in my thoughts ;). Tight,Β  blackΒ  and very sexy. The bra looks very similar to the version 1. a great belt with wonderful detailed, gold decorations is a definitely highlight of this outfit. Handless gloves add the cool look to this version of “X.Tina” The tight, deep black pants have a nice glow and are decorated with seams that break the basic texture.

A perfect addition are the “X.Tina Boots” Very high heeled ballet ankle boots that need a lot of practice to walk with πŸ˜‰ Ladies take care of your ankles πŸ˜‰

“X.Tina – not herself tonight 3” brings the lady like look. A short tight skirt combined with an amazing detailed jacked. Totally in black perfect for the night out! The little hat is also part of this amazing outfit.

Diram goes Gaga ;)

After a longer time, looking at the new Diram Scandalous line I finally could make a decision what I wanna have first πŸ˜‰ The decision was not easy cause Diram really released a lot very stylish and great outfits lastly.

But my first post will show off “Steffani”…even if I am sure it will not be the last one πŸ˜‰

“Steffani” is a very various outfit. You can wear it in different combinations and always look sexy and perfect styled. You can wear all parts of the outfit, then you will have the nice hat with theΒ  amazing lace part over the face, the great jacket with its amazing details like th jacket collar, the awesome shoulder parts and the sexy transparent body under it πŸ™‚

Or you just take of the hat and wear that sexy jacked with the body with some of fierce, stylish hair πŸ˜‰

Also you can take off the jacket, keep the hat and have a stunning seductive outfit with a light touch ofΒ  wearing sexy lingerie πŸ˜‰

Anyways in wich combination you will feel a bit like Lady Gaga and can go fierce with accessories and poses to make great pics. For showing off all 3 versions I described, I would like to thank Daffodil Crimson and Arisia Ashmoot.

We all 3 wearing the new “Lucille” Stiletto Moody ankle boots that are really a perfect addition to that wonderful outfit!
