Silent Valentine?

You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. Of all the people you will know in the lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or lose.

[Jo Coudert]

Valentine flowers, Valentine cards, Valentine cookies, Valentine this and Valentine that… every where you go, you get it rubbed right in your face wether you like it or not…

But what is with those people who would like to avoid Valentine’s da?

Maybe someone lost a beloved person and does not want to get reminded?

Maybe someone had a bad experience on Valentine’s day and tries to forget?

Maybe some people believe, that Valentine’s day only was made for the retail and do not want to support that?

What ever reason people have, I think that everyone should be able to make their own decisions about if they want to celebrate Valentine’s day or not.

I do not needΒ  a special day to tell those I love how much I love them and I would not just do that on one special day. If I want to make my partner a little present, I do that on any day and as often as I want during the year. Sometimes it is just a little thing, maybe candy or something I saw and thought he would like it,Β  just a gesture or maybe just spend some precious time together. I even think it is the many little things that really show how much you do love someone else and not a huge present on a special day, that you are told by the calendar.

That brought me to today’s post as I wanted to do something different for Valentine’s day, but as well keep the typical red color πŸ˜‰

So many new events started and so many new amazing creations got released, I really had a hard time to decide what I would like to wear and use for todays pictures. I ended up with a huge mix and match for my look and as well for the set.

For the outfit I chose a combination of the new “Diana” outfit from [sYs] and a new lingerie from La Perla. You certainly can wear “Diana” without a lingerie underneath but I thought it does give a nice romantic contrast to do so πŸ˜‰

The awesome bracelets and the very special mask, I found at ROMP. When I tried the “Blinded” mask from Cubic Cherry, it immediately added a very intensive feeling to the whole look. With the metal look and the shaped eye contour, it did remind me on that old Roman theater masks.

The head piece is an art piece itself. It was made by LouLou Teichmann, owner and designer of Bauhaus Movement, and with the amazing details and the super sweet look, it made the perfect contrast to the mask.

I would like to drag your attention onto the hair a little more. Recently I discovered a new hair store. I am super picky with hair, especially with the textures, but when I tried my first Sintiklia Hair I was totally amazed. Not only the textures are awesome, Sintiklia has an amazing way how they create their hair at the base. You do not really need a hairbase with the way they do their end parts that meet the head and there is NO alpha issues at all! On many of their hair styles, they even include a style HUD, so that you can change the look of it and get more than one style with your hair. With the “Salma” hair, that I found at ROMP, you get a style HUD that gives you the possibility of 4 different ways how you can wear your hair! And usually you find a mirrored possibility if you have wisps of hair coming down at the front. So often I was cursing when the pose was not cooperation with my hair and I wished I would have had such an option to just change the side of the wisps. As if that would not be already awesome enough, with many of the Sintiklia hair you will get – besides the usual color HUDs – a tint color picker add-on HUD. With that you even can work on the shades of a certain color to match it perfectly to your skin and as well your look! You really should try some of their demos and see for yourself – I only can highly recommend it!

Another part of my post, which I would like to spotlight a little bit, is the sweet looking ‘daybed’ – if you call those things like that. It is a little stool with sweet ribbons and cute ruffles, that comes with many different textures. On the first view you would never believe what is behind that “cute mask” if you do not realize the little metal rings that are added to all the ribbons! Maybe you will get rough idea, if I tell you that the “Boudoir Bondage Stool” was made by Dictatorshop… ok the name might discover something already as well :p

This sweet little furniture you might imagine in a sweet girls room until you sat on it – and if you are a dork like me you enabled your RLV before as it said something about RLV and capture yourself on it *facepalms* It has a full ‘Dictatorshop known’ engine for all kind of couples and solos and for some poses it does even rezz cuffs and chains! What I liked most, you can pose solo in a non kinky way as well as you can roleplay all kind of scenes with it – private ones, which I resisted making picture of :p You still can get it, if you get you an actual Bound Box with a lot of other goodies in it at the Bound Box HQ!

I hope you enjoyed my little ‘different’ interpretation of my personal Valentine today πŸ˜‰

Happy Valentine’s for all who celebrate it and happy shopping!

There’s something I should get off my chest
I’m losing my mind and my life’s a mess.
Well everyone says do this and do that
Maybe they’re right
I feel like I’m gonna…….
It is so big yet I feel so small
It’s even in your shopping mall
Is my life wasting away
Don’t throw it away that’s what they say
I don’t wanna go out and fail
Yet I fail at home every day
I wonder someday if I’ll look back
With regrets on how I lived
Each way I turn I turn my back
Each time I turn I always look back
I’m trying to please everyone I don’t know how
I feel like I’m gonna…….

What should I do I really don’t know
Should I stay home or should I go
Well I’m struggling with my sanity
Is my life crumbling in front of me.
Do you know how it feels?
To feel like you’re gonna explode
Do you ever feel
Like you’re gonna explode.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 04/26/2013 – Light Colors ;)

LOTD 04262013 full

Hoooorrraaay, Spring is coming πŸ˜‰ In Germany we had the first sunny week with genial temperatures. It was great to feel the sun kissing your skin and the mood became better as well. No more cold weather no more dark cloudy days… amazing! Inspired by all the wonderful weather and colors outside, I wanted to make a spring look that would work to just go for some shopping πŸ˜‰ .

I started with the “LolliPop Dress” top from GizzA, because I loved the strong yellow that reminded me so much of the sun. The cool ruffles gave the whole outfit a light retro touch. A longer time ago I got the “Apasionado” bag from LaGyo. The cute bag looks like a little face with the zipper and the holders and I really fell in love with it. The denim color of the bag brought me to my blue jeans. The wonderful “Skinny Pants” from GizzA are mesh made and so you have an awesome shape and it moves perfect even with weird poses or movements… no more weird knees πŸ˜‰ .

Now the drama started, as I wanted to have yellow shoes that go with the shirt. I looked through my shoe folder and all yellow tones looked more orange than yellow compared to the top, not to mention that most of my shoes are black or white *chuckles* So the few I had, I could not really use and I thought about a good store for strong colored shoes that matched the look. I started window shopping for nearly over an hour till I arrived at Tara. Bingo! I saw already when I arrived – even if I was still rezzing –Β  that I would find many colored shoes and maybe even the right yellow tone πŸ™‚ .

After trying a few demos, I decided to go for the “Equilibrium” shoes from Tara. With all the silver decorations, studds and ornaments I wanted to go for light accessories so my choice fell on the “Asia” watches and braceletsfrom GizzA and the “Lick ME!” earrings from Ticky Tacky, both in white.

Etchaflech & Voluptia featured in the Maniera Magazine

ManieraModels_CorsetFeature_LovelyMiwako7399 Menna_December12_Lineup_v3

For the actual Maniera Magazine December 2012 ( I had the great honor to be featured in a wonderful fashion spread of Lovely Miwako. She made a special corset themed article about how different corsets can look.

We all got sent different corsets from Etchaflesh and Voluptia and Lovely asked us to style them in a vintage non typical lingerie manner. As well she wanted us all to choose one tattoo that we wear through the whole spread.

ManieraModels_CorsetFeature_LovelyMiwako7399 Menna_December12_02

For the first picture Lovely placed me on the floor besides SterlingZen. The corset I was wearing for this picture came from Voluptia and everyone that knows me… I am a corset addicted even in RL, so to style the corset in a non lingerie way for me was like if you tell me I just won in a lottery *grins*

I love a lot the different vontage stylings from the 50’s to the 80’s ( it still scares me that 80’s are called vintage now too^^) and so I was going for my favourite urban look as well with the heavy boots and the tattoos and some fishnet stockings and torned stockings. The huge glasses and the pinup hair added the perfect finish for the look in my view.

ManieraModels_CorsetFeature_LovelyMiwako7399 Menna_December12_05

On this picture, I had the great pleaure to be with Katherine Comet a wonderful and classy Lady that shines at my side with a wonderful corset styling that reminded me a lot on the old racing pinups I saw so many times on that collectable retro/vintage, metal signs from coke or even others… not sure how they are called in english, mostly you find them in bars πŸ™‚

For the second look I was given the corset and the sneaker boots from Etchaflech. I added the neck corset as well from Etchaflesh, pantys and garterbelt from Maitreya.

Lovely did an amazing job in putting different ladies, diffrent looks and attitudes together to show a wide range of what corsets can do… weither of elgant, grunge, rocker, lingerie, vintage or burlesque… as different as we ladies are as different corsets can be used for anykind of styling, that you can think of πŸ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 01/30/2012 – The Day After…

30th of January… 2007 I was born in SL and now we have 2012… 5 years in SL, that’s a long time. I usually tend to forget that date as I did today. I realized it as the clock on my computer turned to 1AM and the date switched*grins*. So, today.. or better yesterday, I spent my SL day with styling and making pictures… like mostly*lol*. I had an argument lately with a few ppl about corsets. Some wanted to tell me corsets are fetish, others told me they are porn and some said corsets are lingerie only. But I disagreed and still do. Corsets came from way in the past before we had all those fancy leather and latex stuff and they were part of awesome medieval gowns for example.

So I took myself to a challenge that I can wear corsets without any touch of all that prejudices and create a modern non avantgarde look. Ok I admit… it turned out in some postapocalyptic again lightly but that might be because of my favour for this kinda pictures *smiles* Maybe if you just put the whole outfit in a different scenery it looks different again, but the big hoodie on the “Anath” jacket of Miamai. The rats that are placed over the shoulder just underlined the feeling of the day after a worldwide catastrophe where you just wake up and try to survive, maybe try to find other people and some food. The white corset comes from NV Corsetry. I discovered this store over 2 of my sissies, Lexie and Lorelei. The introduced me to Khurt Vhargon, owner and designer of NV Corsetry. He makes a very new kind of corsets, fully scripted to resize them in every direction. You can choose if you only wanna make it longer or wider and not just resize the full object… really an innovation for corsets in SL. As well he created so many different styles and different fabrics that you really get in trouble if you visit his store as you have a hard time to choose. The newest addition to that corsets is, that now he can help you fit the corset as well if you cannot do it on your own with a remote control of the script. That means he can operate the script while you are wearing his corsets. I only saw this technique at BAX before for the boots and it will be really helpful, if you are not yet that experienced in SL with fittings and scripts and still wanna wear one of his amazing corsets πŸ™‚

For the pants I chose one of my all time favourites from LeeZu, the “Madison” pants. The earrings and bracelets come from Finesmith and the face tattoo from White Widow, as well favourite stores of mine πŸ™‚ The skin is made by Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon. She made me this special makeup for the “Rookie” skin, called “Childhater” as I wanted black lips and dark smokey eyes. One example for the great custom makeups you can get from Silken Moon πŸ™‚ As I had to walk through water for that post :p the water swallowed the cool “Pomski” boots from Kookie

I hope I could prove my opinion, that corsets are not only porn, fetish, lingerie or avantgarde… they can be so much more and as well a part of everyday looks if you combine them with jeans and a casual blouse :). *makes a note to herself for a new look*

And so I will bring the box I found, in the water at the beginning of my post,Β  back home and see what I got…

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Having fun with my Inventory and sneak in Lovely’s^^

My inventory is a mess most of the times with all the blogging items, new releases and the stuff I buy, cause I think I have tome to blog it still *lol*.Β  But I have to admit I love my mess *giggles* Sometimes it gives me christmas more than once during the year if I discover something I never thought of :). Lately I found a super cute outfit from Inga Wind, designer and owner of Inga Wind Clothing sitting in my inventory. I put it on and really liked it.

The “Codie Jumpsuit” really is a cool outfit for the everyday wardrobe and with the cuteness it has by itself I could combine it wonderful with some accessories, without pushing it in the back of the view. “Codie” is made of lots of different shades of blue and as well many different fabrics. The chest part is kinda ruffles while the rest of the body is more straight. The sweet lines that hold the top in place are made with prims and the exact same look you will find for the belt. The neat cap completes the cool casual blue look πŸ˜‰

The jewelry for this amazing blue look comes from Mandala as I thought the textures and the style would go amazing with each other and for me it did :p

The shoes are a combination of the new “Oxa” mesh ankle boots by Baiastice and the “Legwarmer for heels” from G Field. Sissy Pessoa, owner and designer of Baiastice, released wonderful new mesh ankle boots in uni colors and a special edition of mixed colors, I will have them soon here on my blog as well :).

As I was roaming around in my little box in side of Lovely’s Inventory (if you now ask yourself why that, just read here: πŸ™‚ It was a sweet little fun Lovely did not too long ago πŸ˜‰ ) I decided to walk out and peek a bit through Lovely’s inventory. I found a lot of cool makeups lying around and some stuff of House of Rage, what she designed and worked on. As well al lot of pictures and other clothing, suddenly I saw a folder called “[MIWA] Poses”… now I became curious… Lovely does poses? I sneaked inside the folder with my mini digi cam and tried the out. The were so cool that I had to snap them… then I heard a rumble going on outside and realized Lovely is back and was working something in her inventory! I grabbed my cam left the poses and sneaked back to my box hiding… but take a look what I got…

“One in a Million Contest”: Mea Culpa – “Shanghai Noon” could grab the win!!!

As well designed for the “One in a million” contest, I would like to showcase the second design Tatanka Kaligawa made for this challenge.

This gown comes with all parts you can see. The hair and shows are part of the outfit and even the amazing jewelry. What I was not able to show on the pics, the gemstones of the jewelry have a very tricky and great texture. It is glittering and glimmering kinda like an animated texture! I rarely saw such before and it really caught my attention. The same texture is repeated on the little balls that are attached on the shoulders. Such a shame that you cannot catch that in a picture but if you make your way to the Mea Culpa Mainstore and get this fabulous gown you can see it πŸ˜‰ as well you can IM me and I will come to the store and show you :). The name already tells some about the idea that was behind that gown – it has a huge asia touch ;). The wonderful fan with the spikes on the right hip and the wonderful flowers that remind on orchids… simply amazing!

The gown can be worn in 3 different versions. I tried to catch all possibilities with keeping one pose to show you what the changes are. Above you can see the first version. For this one you just wear the skirt layer and a special provided leggings under it.

Second possibility would be the so-called mermaid version. For that you just add the prims on the bottom of the skirt combined with the stomach attached prim and the skirt layer.

The last option would be a pants version. For that one you will find an extra made pants layer in your folder that is lightly different to the leggings for the skirt. The incredible hip attachment with the long trains for left and right go well with all versions of them but for sure you can experiment with it as you please. The wonderful shoes are as well part of that outfit as I said and they come with the Mea Culpa HUD to match your skintone perfectly. This outfit really is something special with all the possibilities to wear and all the additions you will get if you purchase that outfit!

Wicca’s Wardobe: Weird moments in black and white – the second ;)

Ok I admit I stuck a while with my weird moments about stylings, but I have to admit it feels very nice to be allowed to do what you want πŸ˜‰ The basic of this styling was one of the last “Claim the Fame” shows. The theme was Fantasy Avantgarde. Mostly I try to match the shows themes with my stylings and so this look came together.

The basic makes one of the Black & White skins, made by Nuuna Nitely, owner and designer of Nuuna’s Skins. The for sure with my addiction to Finesmith Designs, jewelry from yula Finesmith had to be part. The skirt part is from the “Saleena Inspiration” set. To cover up the private parts I chose to wear the “Maya” nipple shields and the “O collection 011” bracelets, as well from Finesmith. If you look closer you can see that I used the “Valeria Inspiration” earrings as well for the ears and I changed them in size and made me great wings out of them as well πŸ™‚ The pants, the forehead pice and the feet parts I took from Eshi Otawara‘s “Flying Home” outfit. For the top I remembered one of my old-time favourites… the “Wilted Wednesday Vest” made by Kyoot. For the hair I chose one of the great hairstyles of 3636 Designs.

And now I will hide in the depth of my inventory again and see what I can come up next with πŸ˜‰
