The Approach…

Crazy times… Corona still holds the world in its hand and all of us try to do our best to fight it, even if we cannot see yet any success and things seem to get worse and worse. I know it isn’t the fact, but sometimes it feels like it. We are now in our second week without school in Germany. I am a teacher (usually in the mornings I do teach at a school) and I do have a tiny private afternoon tutoring company. Usually I am surrounded by kids all day and in the past I had days where that was quite exhausting. Always having 10 to 60 kids around you from 8 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon didn’t feel always easy but now that I see how it is to have none of them around – it doesn’t feel good either. I am lucky to have the possibility to hold online classes and have some one-on-one tutoring as well, but it doesn’t feel the same. Before the difficulties were the noise in bigger groups, or the kids being distracted by looking outside the window and now… the difficulties have changed. I never thought it could be that hard to explain something like mathematics to a child online only online… you talk a lot more trying to describe everything and if they have to draw triangles with certain length or certain degree angles. Most of them do not have the technical equipment to show you what they did, they usually only can take a snap with their cellphone and send it to me.. and if they spend already like 20 min to do that task and then something went wrong you can start all over again.

Certainly it has a positive side as well – I do not have the distance and the time to drive to school and back in the afternoon and I have the advantage of having an open bowser all the time to find answers I might not know out of the blue for certain questions, so I do not wanna whine or rage about it – I just discover everyday the differences and the different difficulties. Between all that I try to keep my Mom inside and safe – she is over 70 and recently had a brain tumor and chemo after it, so she is in the risk group for that damn virus as well. So my Second Life times at the moment are a little bit more limited and not as regular as I used to be, but I do not want to stop blogging and taking pictures completely as it feels like a little bit of resting time and holiday for my brain when I do that.

The pictures for todays post I already did  over a week ago, but I wasn’t able to post work them and write something about yet. So now the Cyber fair by ACCESS sadly is over but I am sure you can find all the goodies in the designers main stores already or soon.

First of all the amazing vinyl ensemble from A&Y called “Phex”, which is a combination of a long sleeved top and short pants with an awesome, realistic looking shine. It is decorated with straps and zippers and with the huge HUD you can change the colors for all different parts including the metals.

All the amazing accessories I as well found at the Cyber Fair, but like I said before I am sure you will find them most likely either already or soon at the designers main stores. The incredible face art done by Nefekalum Tattoos comes in 3 different versions. You can find many different tings in your folder. First of all the 3 different versions of the makeup it self. Black Tears only, Red Smudge only and a full version of both. Furthermore you will find appliers for head and body materials and the belonging erasers. On top of that, since all his tattoos are materials enabled, Sir Skye added a perfect projector (light source) as well, for you to use if you like.

Certainly I did need some cool nails and rings to complete my outfit and it was no question that the “Creature Claws” from CerberusXing were just the perfect choice. They are available in 3 colors (silver, onyx and gold) and rigged for Belleza Jake,  Signature Gianni, Maitreya and the female Slink hands.

The smart looking hair style was made by no.match. I love the wild top hair, the shaved sides and the fact that you still have 2 wisps at your ears. Like always for no.match hair styles you have different color packs and a fatpack available. The purchases will include a shaved hairbase as well, but since I do have my own shaved hair base I did not use it for todays post 😉

It was time again to built my own set – I found so many cool things at the Cyber Fair, I just had to. All you can see, from the backdrop over the drinks, food (weed) vending machine and the incredible animals, I collected at the Cyber Fair.

I would like to draw your attention a little bot towards the animals. The “Caged Biter” is available in 3 different colors. You can separate the animal from the cage as you can see in my pictures. The Biter is an animated mesh design and has adorable movements, which make it possible to have some more interactive looking pictures with the different poses or the animal.

I do have an immense fun at the moment with cyber and sci-fi posts as they open a whole new range for pictures and styles to me. We do not know what the fashion or environment will look like in our future, but for me that gives us a lot of room to experiment and the possibility of unending creativity 🙂

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS Cyber Fair // March 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS Cyber Fair // March 5th- 25th 2020

The latest in biotech augmentation, Wicca’s Originals has put forward the Deadbolt Arms. This body mod is not a complete replacement, but rather merges technology with some of the biologic parts of your natural arms. Bone structure will braced with titanium to resist breakage. Microscopic poly-acetylene tubes will be woven with your muscles to provide multiple times the strength. Additionally, movements can be both recorded, fine-tuned, and played back using the control panels on the upper arms for a revolunationary new definition of ‘muscle memory’. Comes with style in mind, in a myriad of color patterns, and with a transparent hardened fiberglass viewing port on the forearm, which can be removed if maintenance is needed.

The Deadbolt Arms are made for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass and Signature Gianni. They all come with a HUD for 10 different color options.

The Vision headpiece by Wicca’s Originals is a piece of tech you don’t want to miss. The external lens fitted before your head provides a non-intrusive heads up display. Perfect for painting and rangefiding targets, scanning for anomalies, or just secretly exchanging messages or browsing the web without appearing rude in company. The forehead brace isn’t that bulky just for show — it is an induction sensor which scans your brain patterns for commands. No typing needed. One size fits all — the device can be modified for any head, male or female, and comes in black, blue, red and grey.

Event Location: ACCESS Cyber Fair 2020

Black Widow

TUNES

Kiss me black widow.
Have no mercy on me tonight.
Feed on me, black widow.
Come feel me.
I want to touch you.

No rescue,
I already carry your poison within me.
All my vitality,
sinks into the abyss of lust,
tonight.

[Original German Lyrics from Eisbrecher]

When I styled todays look, I already had that song (above) in mind and since it is German, I tried to translate a few  lines for you all 😉

Again I am showcasing some of the incredible releases from the Mainframe event. The event has about half-time by now and some creators even put half-time news or gifts out us all – you really should check them out 😉

When I saw the insect legs from AMBIX, I immediately had an idea what I would like to do with them. I never saw something like that before in Second Life in such an amazing quality and with even an AO coming with them… The Black Widow jumped into my mind and settled down while I was looking through some other new releases of the Mainframe event. I marked all the goodies of the Mainframe event blow my credits you you can be sure to not miss any of them.

Sometimes I have the desire to tell a little story with my pictures and with the Black Widow, I had to have a victim for her and I didn’t want to go for the most obvious and use a human this time (maybe another time *grins wickedly*). That is the reason for the awesome, little dragonfly with me on my pictures.

So my biggest challenge this time was, how to  get my Black Widow in a cyberpunk or sci-fi looking surrounding without looking too weird *giggles* While I played around with the “hex frames” from Toxxic, I did remember the “Neon Retrowave Landscaping” set, which I picked up on a FLF. I KNEW they would come in handy some when!

Now that I had my perfect set I was able to go some more crazy with more news from Mainframe! Normandy made some really interesting pieces and since I was already wearing insect legs, the cool “Auto Fangs” with the matching lip stick, just matched perfectly in my imagination and the “Oeil” set with the eyes and the forehead accessories made the face look just perfect! I love cyberpunk and sci-fi sets and styles a lot as you can go crazy with kinda no limits not being called constantly a freak :p

Before I will run back to SL to do some more pictures, I would like to drag your attention to my panties and collar, which are made by CerberusXing. I already showcased both before but lately I simply cannot live without CerberusXing anyways plus I saw exciting news on his Flickr stream. He is remodeling his store completely and gave a little sneak preview (HERE) – it is really worth watching it!

And as I already said… back to Second Life for some more picture and fancy ideas *snickers*

Safe with me!

I wanted to do a couple picture for such a along time again with my partner Redclaw Inshan and now finally for the Mainframe event the time was right again. You can find so many cool new releases for male and female at the Mainframe event, that there was no way around some couple pictures of them 😉

I always get told, it is rare to find good designs for males… the Mainframe event would be one event to take a look as they have a lot of incredible designs and item for all genders and as well different genres inside a futuristic overall mood. But you can find electronic things, sci-fi, fantasy, post apocalyptic and lots of Neon things.

I mean it is no secret that I am addicted to cyber things anyways do that event was a “must go” anyways but I really think even if you are just looking for some extra ordinary accessories it will be worth looking.

Lets take a closer look what we used from the event…

The first item that probably jumps to your eye first is the cool “Enhancement” tattoo from Nefekalum Tattoos. It is available in red and blue and we chose the red version for todays post. The tattoo (face & body) comes in 2 versions, with the shading (black) and without. You can decide if you want to go BoM or work with the Omega Advanced applier, which as well gives you the cool possibility of materials on the tattoos. Sir Skye as well included 4 projectors (which I did not use for this particular post). 2 color ones in red and blue and 2 tech ones that give you an amazing look through their projector textures!

The incredible detailed face implants are made by {PSYCHO:Byts}. They come in 2 link sets (8 pieces), that you can perfectly edit to fit them on your face. With the HUD you can make a lot of color combinations based on 8 different colors and 6 metal versions.

The extreme cool eye patch was created by Gryphon Vendetta for his brand UNGOD. He already convinced me with his poses but his meshes are very unusual and perfect for a unique look as well! For the Mainframe event, he created that unisex eye piece in black and white. Each one has 4 different colors for the glowing lens and since he left his product modifiable, you can even adjust the glow to your needs.

The cool skin that I am wearing as well is one of the releases for the Mainframe event, coming from Stargazer. They offer the skin in 3 different tones for the event and I chose to wear the gray one.

The gloves that Sir Red is wearing, we created for our own brand Wicca’s Originals – as well a new release for the event, which I will do a separate showcase over the next few days since we again created a female AND a male version of a full outfit that is sold in 3 pieces (outfit, gloves & shows).

 What better than some evergreens from A&Y we could have chosen to complete our looks. the “Dext” hair is one of my personal favorites and I do not need to tell how much I love Anabel Crystal’s clothing if it comes to latex and cyber designs!

You still have till February 20th to visit the cyber fair and see all the goodies in one place before you have to do shop hopping when they all return to their main stores 😉

Wicca’s Originals @ Mainframe // 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ Mainframe // Jan 20th – Feb 20th 2020

Kevlar vests are all well and good, but what about the rest of the body? Wicca’s Originals has you covered, with the Guardian Suit. Coming in three pieces which can each be worn independent, the outfit, gloves, and boots, the Guardian Suit offers great protection without sacrificing mobility. The material is made up of a combination of plasteel panelling and synth-thread weave, providing effective defense against ballistics and cuts, while also softening any blunt force. The panel over the groin is secured by several buckles, allowing the wearer to ‘do their business’ without removing the entire ensemble. Our Guardian ensemble is designed to protect both men and women and is rigged for Gianni, Lara, Hourglass and Freya. Comes in six colors, get yours today!

LM: Mainframe

“If a technological feat is possible, man will do it. Almost as if it’s wired into the core of our being.”

“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding…”
[William Gibson, Neuromancer]

Again I was in a cyberpunk/sci-fi mood… I have no idea but in that kind of genre, I love deep and saturated colors like orange and blue or teal.

With the “Chemicoll” gacha set, a collaboration between CerberusXing and SOLE, I easily found my way completely in to the world of cyberpunk and future worlds. The set is made of 33 commons and 2 rares plus 6 amazing, different VIP rewards. You will get one VIP reward each time you play the machine for 1000 L$. I am wearing all parts mostly in orange for today’s post but you have the chance for  7 different colors – the rares certainly come with a HUD to match them to all colors. What is a neat little detail as well is, that most of the parts are modify like always for CerberusXing (except for script content). That gives you the possibility for example to work on the transparency of the “Tube Top”. With that you can decide how  much of your bits you want to show or hide *winks*

What other hair I could choose than a style from A&Y, my favorite store when it comes to cyber or futuristic hair. Today I picked the “Zeo” hair, which as well comes with the matching hair base with an Omega Applier. The hair is a full style with the head plate and all the tubes and parts you can color match to what ever you wear with the amazing HUD A&Y offers for all of their items.

To complete my look I used one of the latest releases from Nefekalum Tattoos. He recently started to work even more with materials and environment (Omega Advanced, for the bodies that support it). I LOVE his creativity and as well the dark mood his tattoos always put me in. That inspires me a lot and sometimes – like today, I was trying to go with a blue/teal color range first – I even re-think my looks and change around some colors to include his work into my styles. For the open chest of the “Tell Tale” tattoo a red/orange toned look matched much better…

My whole set I did build with HILTED items. I recently discovered, that HILTED not only does great accessories, avatar followers and gadgets, but as well backdrops and furniture! I am sure I will have more of that in the future as they are amazing built and as well incredible detailed textured. Today I mixed different sets and designs – a detailed list you can find in the credits below 😉

Wicca’s Originals @ Hallow Manor 2019

Wicca’s Originals @ Hallow Manor // October 18th – November 1st

Tired of tripping over your own feet? You need something more precise, and more functional. Enter the Eagleden Legs and accompanying boots, by Wicca’s Originals. A smart steel and brass body augment, this improves leg performance by incorporating hydraulics, spring tension, and replace brittle bone with unyielding metal. Jump higher, run faster, kick harder, these beat out their organic counterparts in every race. Comes exposed for easy diagnosis and maintenance, but can be covered up with clothing easily. The boots they come with are part western, part punk, held together with metal pins, metal studs, and buckled straps. Can choose to wear the replacer on one leg or both, and the boots come in a myriad of hues.

The Eagleden Legs are available for Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya and Signature Gianni!

Hallow Manor as well has a fabulous hunt going on during the event. The rules and guidelines you can find at the Hallow Manor Hunter’s Guide: https://palegirlproductions.com/hallow-manor-hunters-guide/

Our hunt prize will be a special version of your Phantom Mask. This half-mask can be worn on either side of the face, and is adorned with patterns depicting an enigmatic array of symbols. Puzzle pieces, haphazard stitching, saw blades, and gears appear on the mask, giving the wearer a sense of mystery along with anonyminity. Rather than a traditional eye hole, the eye is covered by a mesh, obscuring view of it while allowing clear sight. Can be worn by men and women alike.

Event & Hunt Location: Hallow Manor

Wicca’s Originals @ Driftwood // August 2019

Wicca’s Originals @ Driftwood (5th August – 5th September)

The Edge Implant. Some say it is a synaptic accelerator, increasing the brain’s own ability to process information. Some say it is able to provide the wearer with augmented reality, through induction points near key optical nerves. Still others claim that it is being used to control the behavior and condition the thoughts of slaves. One thing everyone agrees on is that it looks amazing, and is a must-have for any cyberpunk style! The Edge Implant comes with a HUD that offers you 13 colors to choose from. It is unisex and modifiable so you can size it to fit your head no matter if it is mesh or system.

Hoverboarding

CyberPunk Fair is over – Sadly!

But I am not yet done with my cyber moods *giggles*. The event had so many awesome new designs and creations, I just cannot stop yet to play with what I got.

Today I had mega fun with the “Samurai Hoverboard” from UNGOD and the matching pose set from Poseidon. Gryphon Vendetta, owner and designer of both brands, included a  more simple looking board in the pose set but I loved the hover board and the katana so much from the UNGOD set that I had to cheat them in 😉

Again I have to say, how much I love Poseidon Poses. They are so full of energy and so well thought through, it really inspires a lot of you have such poses for pictures – they are really poses for special purposes!

And again I am happy to show you another side of the “Simone” head from LeLutka. I do not know how to say, but the “Simone” head, is one of the most versatile ones. I know that some call it edgy and not as smooth as other ones, but maybe that is exactly what I do love. Every skin gives you different looks and with using the editing sliders, you even can force that more. This time I wanted a cyberpunk look and with the blue skin and some modification tattoos it really got a light machine character. The lips do have an amazing shape. I am not a friend of too full lips for my look and with thinner lips most heads do look angry – but not “Simone”!

With the cool face mods from  -[TWC]- and the crone ,paired with some cool cyber looking eyes from CURELESS [+], the whole look really became freaking cool. The smart “EmoTech Lens 1” from Astara, is a sweet little thing too. You can decide with a HUD, what kind of smiley face you want to show on your lens, as well you can choose your color. The cool neko headpiece was made by the one and only Deccan Arida from [The Forge] and it certainly could not be missed for my cyberpunk style today 🙂

What caught my attention as well were the lipsticks from nox. They do give the lips that awesome plastic look and oyu have many colored to choose from.

After all I do hope Flair for Events will make the CyberPunk Fair an annual event as I really miss this kind of things and it was like heaven to find so many in one place 🙂

Tokyo after Dark

Being still in my dark period, I was in a dark casual mood today 😉

I love the “VoDoo” ears so much, I had to do another post with them. I am not a fan of elf ears for everyday looks but sometimes – for what ever reason – I love them not just for a fantasy style.

Today I wanted to showcase one of Ex Machina’s awesome buildings. I rarely saw better structures that are made with more love for the details, than the designs from Hatris Panacek, owner and designer of Ex Machina. It is no secret , that I adore her work, otherwise we never would have asked her to make a custom built store building and most of it’s interior for us. Hattie has amazing skills when it comes to building and as well to texturing. She works so hard to get her realistic looking surfaces done and it pays of every time she does a new release. The “Tokyo after Dark” building is one of her latest creations. On her vendor she states, that his is the first in a set of urban, Japanese, cyberpunk styled buildings. That mean for me we can hope on more of those, which would make me super duper happy, because I LOVE that kind of style 😉

For my pictures I used 2 of the buildings and the amazing street components she delivers with the building. I just turned one of the buildings 90 degrees, so I could showcase the front and the backside as well – I really loved the stair case in the back a lot. I snapped over 10 pictures and I liked all of them. Making a decision was really not easy this time. When I started I just wanted to showcase the amazing “VoDoo” ears and the awesome “Tokyo after Dark” building. But the more I was fooling around with a style the more I got my vibe for that dark urban look. I used the amazing “Bella Leather Pants” from [Gos]. I already blogged those before, but in a more sweet casual style and I wanted to try if they do work for some more dark looks as well – They do!

What as well caught my attention a lot was the new tattoo from Mister Razzor. I love when tattoos go up till parts of the head, but not many are really seamless. The “Dante” tattoo, which was released at the Black Fair not too long ago, did not disappoint in that matter 🙂

Again I am wearing my everyday head from LeLutka. I know the “Simone” bento head was one of the first heads, that LeLutka released when the new bento generation of heads came out, but it is still my absolute favorite one, even if I more and more enjoy the new Korina head as well *winks*

The “Simone” head with a skin from the Skinnery became kinda my trademark. When I first put on the “Simone” head, I wasn’t really sold on the first try, as it looked very young with the default skin from Glam Affair. Since I am in Second Life now for over 10 years I wanted a more adult look for my pixels. I did a lot of things and I did grow up lightly too during my Second Life journey. That I wanted to mirror with my avatar as well. I remember very well the moment when I put on “my” skin. As models we all had quite some trouble when the first mesh heads came out and we all looked the same more or less, while we were told ALWAYS, tht our face would be our trademark in the modeling business. But the bento generation changed that “issues” pretty fast, when we were able again to at least customize our heads a little more again. From that moment on I was in love with my “Simone” head. I tried all the new bento heads from various brands but none was able to satisfy my needs as LeLutka did. What I do love the most on the “Simone” head (and as well on the Korina one), that it is not the usual mainstream beauty. It does have edges and give – depending on the skin – a very characteristic look. With my Skinnery skin and some face modifications from Izzie’s, I was completely sold with my new look and never really changed it drastically again – just some minor shape and other changes here and there 😉
