LOTD 03/26/2017 – Yesterday @ GizzA

Working at GizzA is so much fun, you meet new people everyday and as well you have probably the 2 of the best bosses ever. Giz and Auster are 2 of the most kind people I ever met in Second Life and so work is even more fun especially if the come around to check the store and have time for little chit-chat 😉

GizzA had many new releases lately – as always –  it was hard to pick one for my today’s shift.

Finally my decision fell on the “Karlie Sweater Dress”.

The dress can be worn without any pants or leggings as well, but I am not a fan of bare legs too much, plus the season not yet has me in the mood for that 😉

The sweater dress comes in many different colors and you get for each of them 2 different shades and a HUD for the belt.

For the pants I chose some leggings from Lassitude & Ennui, that just matched the tone of the sweater perfectly.

That look just matched the season mood I am in at the moment, ready for spring to come even if it is freezy outside still later in the afternoons!

LOTD 10/18/2014 – Featuring LeeZu & PurpleMoon

LeeZu PurpleMoon 03

Lately I am a lot on to colored stylings… maybe that’s the autumn vibe 😉 So before the dark Halloween days start I use my colored moods a bit more 😉

Today I would like to showcase one of the newest releases from LeeZu together with the amazing new “Croco Boots”, that PurpleMoon released for the Instruments event.

The “Li-Belle” outfit is an ensemble of hotpants jacket and top. All of them are available in various color combinations so you will find your favorite one at the LeeZu Mainstore. The super sexy hotpants are made with some very aerial fabric and it nearly looks like as the short pant sleeves would move with every wind breeze ;). The jacket again is a little master piece of LeeZu again. The long sleeves are open at the outsides. A perfect look for the last sunny moments in the autumn season. Both, the hotpants and the jacket are mesh made and only the top comes in a layer version to fit perfectly under the jacket.

The boots are again the “Croco Boots” from PurpleMoon.. I know I already showcased them, but they are so amazing, that I had to wear them again in another color ;). You will find the boots at the Instruments event till the end of October.

The amazing earrings are made by Chop Zuey and with the golden metals and the possibility to recolor the gems to match the look the “Don’t call me Betty” earrings were the perfect choice.

With the glasses from Crie Style and one of my favourite hair styles from EMO-tions I felt ready for a sweet afternoon walk over the grid, where I found this amazing little garden house wich was part of the last Collabor 88. Perfect scenery for a perfect autumn look 😉

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 11/16/2013 – A little bit of Steampunk

Silken Moon-Shi 002

Steampunk – One of my favourite styling themes. I love the smooth and brownish colors and the idea of all the technical and mechanical stuff.

For todays look I started with the new “Paradox Pants” from Silken Moon. Malicia Python, wich we all know for her incredible amazing skins, again started to make some clothing. The “Paradox Pants” were released together with a matching jacket, but for this post I wanted to showcase the pants first, as they are really awesome for mix and matching.

Silken Moon-Shi 001

For my today’s styling I chose the ‘Nexus’ version of the “Paradox Pants”. Silken Moon made a lot of other patterns and fabrics for the beautiful mesh pants. The top I picked from Leezu. It is part of one of the Noir outfits called “Efraims Daughter”. I always like the brown fabric of the corset and the ripped part that covers the chest. The huge neck part I found at Shi. Shi is a store where I find myself lately more often. They seem to make some neat accessories and items that you cannot find all over the grid. The “Hesed” neck warmer, is one of those. This huge accessory is a perfect addition for my todays look. The used look and the warm colors of the ‘old book’ version perfectly went with the pants and the top. The shoes are one of my favourites from J’s. The “Studded Long Boots” are cool flat mesh shoes that can be worn in so many different styles and for the steam punk I liked the studds that brought back the metal parts of the neck warmer. Speaking of warmers, the arm warmers are from Shi as well. Shi released amazing armwarmers with mesh hands and fingers right attached to them. With a simple HUD you can choose the ring style and as well you can match the hands to your skin relatively easy. And now i will explore this amazing sim that I found for my pictures 😉

The Water Fairy that wanted to Fly

Today I have something very special for you…

Yesterday I got an outfit from the October’s Trending Fashion Chamber, from October Bettencourt, owner and designer of Captive Designs. The outfit is called “Snakeskin Jumper”, made in brown and green tones. As I put it on and looked at it for a while, I thought that many people will style it just like a casual outfit and I wanted to try something different… And for some strange reason suddenly a steam punk fairy came into my mind… I know that this 2 words usually do not go together well but … it got stuck in my mind. The “Snakeskin Jumper” comes with mesh pants, a short layer and the awesome huge neck collar. I only added a fishnet bolero… or that what was left from it*grins* and those wonderful steam punk wings of the “Fallen Aviator” outfit  from E-Clipse.

The hair is one of the latest releases from Element’ Hair with the name “Camille” and the “Elise” ankle boots are from L&B. To make the steam punk feeling perfect I used the “Guildio” glasses from Crie Style.

While I was styling, I was talking to Malicia Python, owner nd designer of Silken Moon, on Skype. She is working on a special custom skin for me and she TPed over to my home to show me what she did new. While we were talking, I was arranging the scene and had pulled out the swing that I found longer ago and never used before. I was sitting on it and had still a white background and no idea for a picture yet. Suddenly Malicia said why not something fantasy? And we started to search for backgrounds. She showed a super nice one. I loaded it up to second life and she surprised me again with a curved background prim to have more depth in my pic. While I was snapping and crashing because of the shadows all the time I told her, how much I would like to learn more about PS and about some tricks and tips and I showed hr some pictures I really like. As she would talk about the weather, she suddenly started explaining to me, what I could do and try to make my pics more unique and more customized. She told me about features of PS I never heard of before and for me it was like … I do not know how to put it, it was kinda like a little child that left the house for the first time… there are so many possibilities and tricks… before I realized it was 4AM in the morning… I went to bed. The next morning I could not wait to sit in front of my PC and try what I learned the night before and after some hours… after I thought it was finished I could not wait to show it to Malicia and show her what I did with her advises… The results you can see in the 2 pictures of this post *smiles super happy*

Then she suddenly came up with a sweet short novel for this pics and style and that I will not hide from you!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for teaching, helping and making such a nice story for the blog Malicia :)!

The Water Fairy that wanted to Fly

ONCE upon a time there was a water fairy, she loved her fellow water beings, but what she loved most was the birds that flew over the lake. She sighed and said „I wish I could fly, too“ A water spirit heard her and felt like her longing would make her an easy prey. He told her he could give her wings, but this would have a price she must be really willing to pay.

The Fairy did not hesitate one moment. She followed the water spirit to his cave where he plucked her left eye out and put it into his own socket. The poor fairy was in pain, not only her missing eye hurt badly also her back felt like it was going to break. And even worse: as her wings grew, she could not breathe under water anymore. She swam up to the surface and gasped for air. The water spirit followed her and cackled as he saw her cry, because she realized her silly wish had banned her from home forever. As she wished for something that was not her nature.

And even today, when you come to the lake by moonlight, you sometimes see the fairy staring into the lake, where she could see her loved ones with her eye that was left with the water spirit.

Fashion for Life – “It’s Time…”

Fashion for Life 2012-“It’s Time…..”

March 10th-20th 2012

http://www.fashionforlifesl.org/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/DreamSeeker%20Its%20Time/128/128/26

‘Fashion for Life’ is the longest running and most successful fashion fair in Second Life ™ and marks the annual start of the official  ‘Relay for Life’ events that take place inworld each year.

All donations are given directly to the ‘Relay for Life’ general fund which benefits the ‘American Cancer Society’ and its thousands of beneficiaries who rely on the charity for support and advice.

Fashion for Life is a hundred percent not for profit, and all organisation, building work and coordination are driven by the work of its volunteers which helps to maximise donated money.

So what’s New for 2012?

This year, Fashion for Life spans an incredible TEN lag free sims with over 200 stores selling the latest fashions, accessories, hair and unique designer items made especially for this event. There will also be gacha areas, a hunt, a raffle and a SALE- all with the end goal of raising funds for the American Cancer Society via SL.

The sims will be laid out in a cross formation and will represent the theme “Its Time…” with builds representing stages in time:  past, present, future and timeless. All building and landscaping have been created by some of SL’s top designers and builders to produce a beautiful environment for your charity shopping sprees!

Alongside the fabulous fashion, there will be a sim dedicated to providing a minimum of 12 hours entertainment and activities every day, so you can socialise, have fun and meet new people too.

Our sims have been kindly sponsored by ‘Dream Seeker Estate Corporation’ which has drastically reduced admin expenses, helping to free up even more money for Relay for Life.

Harper Beresford, Fashion for Life Lead executive says:
“Fashion for Life is not just about fashion and it’s not just about fund raising-it’s about supporting the members of our community in SL who have been touched by cancer.”

Cancer touches everyone. We sincerely hope you join us in this kick-off event for Relay for Life in SL, helping raise money for the American Cancer Society.
