Fragilestrong with Salt & Pepper!

Salt & Pepper 02final

Today I have something very special and as well a personal favour for you.

Lately I got an incredible rope harness from Salt & Pepper. I did not know that amazing designer personally before and I was super surprised, that we share the same country in RL*grins*

It is always kinda funny, if you talk to people in English and after a longer while you discover, that you could have spoken your mother tongue :p

Salt & Pepper 10final

When I met that wonderful lady, I immediately had an amazing and comfortable feeling talking to her and the more we talked, the more I felt, I would like to do that sweet lady a favour. Just because she was so nice and kind to me 😉

She released an amazing Rope & Flowers set on a very new event called Objets d’Amour, which was hosted by the owners or the ROMP event. The first round, where this artpiece was released, was going on from the 4th or February until the 15th.

Sadly, RL did not let me do the pictures in time of the event :/

But since I wanted to do something very special, I simply could not rush the pics through.

But I took a peek at the main store of Salt & Pepper and I saw that she has the gacha machine up there now with that amazing items 😉

Salt & Pepper 08final

I know that many people have prejudices about ropes on a nearly nude body and many times it just falls towards porn or gets judged like that. But as in so many cases, it is always in the eye of the beholder or about personal taste I guess.

To me ropes can be very artistic and as well, tasteful and artistic lingerie or nude shots can be very impressing and amazing.

And exactly that, I wanted to transport on my todays pictures 😉

Salt & Pepper 01final

First I put on the harness and all the parts that came with it and looked at it very close. It comes with HUDs for all pieces, where you can change the colors of the ropes, metals and roses. The set contains even more parts than the ones I used but for the purpose and look I was going for they did not wanna really fit in to my view this time 😉

I decided to go with the harness, the gag and cuffs for ankles and wrists. All parts are scripted for roleplay as well.

The more I looked on the different pieces, the more I found all those incredible details like the little chains that lead for the ropes to the metals or the amazing detailed texture of the rope itself. That already proves the high quality of the Salt & Pepper designs. The whole set contains 5 standard sizes for the classic avatars, Slink Physique/Hourglass and a Maitreya Lara fitting version.

Salt & Pepper 03final

When I was staring at my pixels wearing the awesome parts of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, imaginations ran through my head about what to do with it.

First I tried the black ropes and everything I tried to style kinda was sexy and seductive… but I wanted more. The more I tried, the more an idea got stuck in my mind about opposites. I wanted something artistic, something sexy, something classy.. something fragile and something strong and powerful.

First I thought that will be too many in one but the more I played with stuff the more I was confident about it can work.

Salt & Pepper 06final

I got stuck on the white ropes with the rose golden metals and the darker red roses. To give an opposite to the strong and kinky look of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, I wanted some white lingerie – not too playful with lots of ruffles and lace. More something classy, simple but still modern and different looking AND for the Slink Physique mesh body. After spending more than an hour on Marketplace, I made my way into the Starwalkers2010 chat and asked – kinda depressed – about ideas for something like that.

I got some very good advises but one girl hit the nail on the head with her suggestion… Thank you Voshie Paine!!!

She lead my way to Chocolate Atelier (c.A.). I TPed over to the store and already was very impressed about the designs and I was curious what Marketplace would give me for that brand since sometimes gacha items or older products are not available in world anymore but still there.

Salt & Pepper 09final

BINGO!

I found the “Thea Bra & Panties” ensemble. The amazing layer set can be worn on many different mesh bodies and mesh body parts with the provided appliers and it has the layer versions inside as well.

The simple looking light, smooth fabric has some very fascinating cutouts on both parts, that make an amazing front and back view 😉

Salt & Pepper 07final

While I was searching through my inventory for any kind of scenery or decoration ideas, I stumbled over something that I got a long time ago and never really used it. It comes out of a time long before mesh even was talked about :p .

The “Draped” set from Glitterati was released back in 2011 and comes with a sheer satin looking fabric prop and 10 different poses. I did not use all of them but for a few I wanted to give it a try.

With all the new windlight, the old sculpties did not cooperate too well and I had to rework them a little later in PS. Since I am not a trained graphic artist in RL… go figure… that took a while, but it was well worth every minute for me and I learned new things 😉

I had so much fun doing those pictures and post. I met a wonderful and kind person, I learned about 2  – for me new – brands I definitely will put on my “to shop and watch out for” list so overall it was a wonderful experience and try to play with lingerie, ropes and opposites 🙂

Wicca’s Weird Wardrobe: Fear of the dark

Dark Angel 001

I am a girl who walks alone
And when I’m walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it’s dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something’s
Always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s
Always there

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

Dark Angel 002

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no one’s there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you’re sure there’s
Someone there

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense, and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have constant fear that something’s
Always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s
Always there

When I’m walking a dark road
I am a girl who walks alone

Dark Angel 003

When I was styling the today’s look, I was listening to one of my favourite bands called Van Canto. I will attach the song that I liked most during my styling session at the end of this post 😉 With this music on my ears I could not resist to just let it flow and see what comes out 😉

I strted with the amazing “Emi Corset” from N1CO. The corset with the spiked bra are mesh made and coming in different sizes, I am sure you will find one to match your shape ;). As so often for N1CO, the “Emi Corset” comes with a HUD that gives you a hell of a lot of possibilities to customize the colors and textures. You can color the spikes, the corset straps and lines, the buckles and as well the corset itself with different patterns.

The pants i took from the “Tribute to Kattaca” outfit from [AD] Creations. The full outfit is amazing as well and I will make sure to show case it as soon as possible as well, but the pants just were the right addition for my today’s look. Since the pants are quite ‘open’ I added the “Glitter Pants” from LeeZu to cover my private parts 😉 .

The amazing “Saxa” mesh boots from SeVered GarDeN, caught my attention. The boots are mesh made but with 2 parts. The leg part and the foot part so you even could add another pair of shoes if you would like to.

Now i would like you to take a closer look at the bracelets and the necklace. Not too long ago I was asked if I would like to blog a – for me –  new brand. I never heard about Enfant Terrible before and I am really surprised how that could happen. Enfant Terrible is the store for all those people who wanna be a little extra ordinary. LesEnfant Terrible, owner and designer of Enfant Terrible, has the special taste and feeling for the non usual and out of the box designing. All she creates has her special twist and tweak what makes all of her creations so unique. The “Chloes” set wich comes with bracelet and collier shows her amazing skills when it comes to texturing and creating. The set is HUD driven and you can exchange the gems and totally match any styling you working on. The filigree “Chloe” collier shows with how much love and time LesEnfant Terrible designs her creations.

Many of you know how addicted I am to little details and accessories. So it was clear for a kinda demon style I cannot just leave my face blank and casual with just some makeup :p .

The amazing “Scara” version of the “Morbida” from SIlken Moon made the right basic for an amazing dark and demon looking face. With the wonderful drawn face parts the “Morbida Scara” totally meets my likings. In the package as well you will find another version wich is just grey. I rarely saw a grey skin with so much details and great made body parts. The “Blackness Face Chain” from Soedara I carry around for quite some time and I never saw it fit to something until today 😉 . The chains look very realistic and with the little red gem at the forehead it was the perfect addition. The cool and scary “Damage – Spiked Eye 001” was part of the Halloween collection fo Finesmith for this year. I just loved the look and the 2 little spiders that seem to crawl up the chain that falls down the cheek.

The hair was a new release of EMO-tions for the last weekend. The “Skip a Beat” hair was made as a tribute to Skip Staheli and it can be worn unisex and in different styles. For the fatpack the hair can be color changed with the new HUD that Mirja Mills started to use for all of her latest releases.

Are you ready for “The Abyss”?

FetishCouture-Twins

“The Abyss” – One of Mea Culpa‘s latest releases. Tatanka Kaligawa is working on his X-treme line for Mea Culpa. The idea behind the X-treme line is to bring the fetish style up to a high couture level. Britney Spear, Christina Aguilera and Madonna already discovered the success of combining this 2 styles. Both showed that latex and vinyl can be very sexy if you know how to arrange the outfit. More and more the music industry uses high fashion and couture to make their concerts to huge events with outfits, light and performances. They raised the bar for stage outfits a lot and many try to follow that trend 🙂

For many fetish only has a naughty touch and all just think about the backyard dominas… but fetish itself can be so much more than that. Tatanka dares to break the old stereotypes and shows that he can bring the fetish couture to a higher level. With delicate textures and ideas for designs he shows that you can do so much more that just ‘dungeon’ outfits. He makes it happen that fetish components on his creations make them ready for the huge runways. Tatanka exactly knows the very thin border that he walks perfectly on with for example “The Abyss” outfit. The basic texture layers are again textured with amazing fabrics that have a sexy touch with all the well set holes 😉 the prim attachments complete the straight and couture look in an amazing way. The waist attachment with the long lines hanging down, the cool glasses and the crossed lines at the front neck, that remind on a corset back are wonderful details that show the skills and abilities of Tatanka for creating unique and high fashion designs. What caught my attention a lot was the huge head-piece. The combination of horns, chains and fabrics add a light goth touch as well but with a special couture taste.

For me it has a very special meaning, as I never was a mainstream girl. I always looked left and right of the mainstream and liked the unusual and extraordinary. As I started modeling, I was told as long as I always try to swim against the mainstream as a little fashion rebel, it will bring me nowhere. For a long time I kinda felt like the ugly duck beside all the swans in the fashion world. But it seemed never so bad, that I really wanted to change it. How could I change my self, what I think and what I feel, without loosing myself? So I decided to stick to myself and grow inside of what I felt, thought and liked. Not everyone liked what I did, but more and more it became a trademark of my self to be different, to be the little ‘freak’. The sentence “Hell you always have to twist outfits to make them part of yourself” or ” It is nice to see a different view of my designs” more and more became compliments instead or complaints for me. On that long way of developing myself, my style and to realize my own visions of fashion and style I met a few people who were close to my ideas and my mind. One of the is LovelyMiwako7399 Menna (http://eclecticmiwa.wordpress.com/2013/01/20/fetish-couture-twins/). She is wild, crazy, loud, cute, sweet, creative, young, fresh, provocative and one of the best friends you can have. Lovely became a very close friend for me and we share a lot, not only a loose friendship… we share ideas, minds, tastes and ideals. There is not many in a virtual environment like SL you feel so close to and trust so much.  She always was a rebel with her ideas, styles and creations as well and so it was a great honor to do this picture together with her as the ‘Fetish Couture Twins’, she as well did the picture for this post.

Dare to get out of dusted stereotypes! Dare to stay true to yourself! Dare to be different!

If you take a look at the Mea Culpa Mainstore you can see how 😉 with the new X-treme line at the basement!

Halloween is close – Nikita Fride is prepared ;)

Every year on the 31th of october we all can pander our costume addiction and go fierce 😉 All is allowed as long as it is lightly scary or neat fierce 😉

Nikita Fride did 2 amazing different Halloween outfits and today I wanna show you one of them.

The “Feline” outfit plus the fantastic “Halloween Femme” skin. The skin can be worn with hair base of as a usual one without, both versions are available. The outfit itself is a wonderful combination of a sexy bratop, a bolero jacket and cool pants. A perfect addition are the “Halloween Sneakers” and the punky looking orange socks.

Lets take a closer look on all that amazing details that are part of that cool Halloween outfit. On the left upper leg you can find a nice wool “garter” that looks like part of the cool socks where Nikita Fride put a little and awesome detailed pistol in it. This pistol is hold by also very filigree barbwire, chains and lines. The same love to the detail you will find on the sneakers and the lowers socks. Both are also decorated with very detailed accessories too. The hat is connected to the hair and this complete style is called “Halloween Chic” and you can decided between a normal and a bright version.

The makeup of the “Halloween Femme” also matches perfectly the theme. The big black eyeliner and the orange makeup complete the look. As a highlight you can add the “Long Eyelashes Shine Fall” and your autumn Halloween costume is ready to go out to one of those great parties with 😉

What a vehicle our mixture of witch and scarecrow could use? for sure a broomstick 😉 Morgane Batista made 6 amazing poses with the matching broom.

The “Take a ride on my broom” pose set was made for Halloween and you can get it in Morgane Batistas Poses Shop.

6 different poses, that will let you look good for every situation 😉 The individual poses are 75L, the fatpack is 500L and comes with the 6 brooms.. already rotated, so that you have no trouble editing that broom to yourself 😉

This was just one of the 2 Nikita Fride Halloween outfits, so stay tuned the second one will follow soon 😉

La Dolce Vita – Mea Culpa shows how beautiful it can be ;)

“La Dolce Vita”  – wich better name could such a fantastic gown have… Tatanka Kaligawa again showed his creativity if it comes to style and design.  A wonderful gown in 3 different colors that caught the theme of the name.

A tight long skirt with an amazing combination of transparent lace and a wonderful opaque texture with an amazing shine. The skirt is decorated with 3 sharp long spikes on the right side.The skirt itself that starts at the lower legs is made of wonderful lace that underlines the filigree and aerial theme of this gown. The waist is decorated with another lace part on each side of the hips. Another wonderful accessory is the chain belt that surrounds the waist so perfect.

The top is a little piece of art itself. Again Tatanka shows his great skills if it comes to textures. The top is a combination of different fabrics and ornamented textures that go perfect together. The sides are open and give the whole gown a lightly sexy touch. The sleeves are made of a wonderful filigree lace with amazing ruffles at the end. This sweet ruffles you also can find as a frame for the deep neckline framing a wonderful looking cleavage.

Another great eye catcher is the hat that also is part of the outfit. The big lace hat gives the perfect “La DolceVita”  feeling and is the perfect accessory to give the whole gown a very elegant touch. Again we have the 3 long sharp spikes this time on the left side.

My totally highlight for this outfit is the incredible beautiful and detailed mask. It is a tattoo layer so only to use with one of the new viewers that feature tattoo layers, like SL 2.0 and higher or Phenix, Imprudence, Emergence or all the ones that have this special feature. Again we can see the love for the detail that we know from Mea Culpa designs. Every little thing is made so perfectly. Again we have 3 spikes above each eye and an amazing decoration of long flexible “whiskers”

Overall this gown again is a wonderful piece that shows how artistic fashion and couture can be. If you have time just visit the Mea Culpa Mainstore and see all the other great news 🙂
