Dark, Moody and Powerful – Halloween!

I did my first monthly subscription!

I never really thought about all those subscription boxes before but when DRD announced they will have a monthly subscription box, I could not resist… I had to have it. Even if I already got my second box this month, I still wanted to do a dark, moody post with the items of the first one in September πŸ˜‰

What I really do love about that box is, that you get one dark and one light version of all parts in the box. All the items from the September box I used for the decoration of today’s scenery – certainly the dark parts πŸ˜‰

Talking about DRD, when I was doing the Ironwood Hills hunt I saw many of those items, used as decoration on the sim! Speaking about the Ironwood Hills hunt… that was one of the best hunts I lately did. It is not a usual hunt where you just run around ike crazy and try to find certain items.. way not. It was a very well made one, which was entertaining and exciting the same time. I anyways love the Ironwood Hills sim and did many pictures there for blog posts and magazines, but with that hunt it gets even more interesting and you will find corners that you did not realize before!

When you land you have to click th one sign at the barn where you get your hunt HUD along with a flash light. I highly recommend to use the windlight settings of the sim to have the full experience and for that the flash light is very useful and adds to the whole fun πŸ™‚

The HUD itself already is an amazing idea. You get the impression of a cell phone where you constantly be in touch with the person that is asking you to do something. I do not want to tell yo too much of the story as it would take away all the surprise and you would not enjoy it as much. You have to find a person and the one who asks you to, provides you constantly hints and ideas where you could look for your next step. I really enjoyed that whole story behind that hunt. You have several steps to go and only one was a bit harder to find but all the others where not baby easy but doable if you really read the storyline and hints. When you complete all the tasks you will be able to TP via the home sign on your cellphone HUD to the little market where all the amazing sponsors have set out little gifts for you. It was over 20 amazing gifts from SL’s best designers.

Since I found out lately about inworld games in SL and tried several ones like Madpea or even the ones I found at the Linden Labs Portal location for games, the Ironwood Hills hunt was the one I enjoyed most. I was highly disappointed from the Madpea one, after it was hyped so much when the game “Seven” came out, that I lost some motivation to do such things again. But the Ironwood Hills hunt gave it back to me πŸ™‚ The Ironwood Hills hunt is free to play, with amazing NPC characters that interact with you, so well scripted and you even get 24 amazing high quality gifts in the end!!!

I highly recommend the Ironwood Hills hunt to you if you love spooky, creepy, story based and exciting things πŸ˜‰ The hunt is on from October 1st until November 5th 2017.

Now I would like to drag your view closer on my outfit for today’s post. The incredible “Blood Lust” gacha from Salt & Pepper. Originally the gacha was released for the Arcade event but you now can find it at he Salt & Pepper main store. The whole set contains 3 rares (collar, corset & garters, boots) and 20 commons (sleeves & skirts).

Anyways if rares or commons you always get a clean and a bloody version for each color. While the rares come with full color HUDs too, the commons are all on one color with their 2 versions, that I just explained.

Could you imagine a better outfit that the “Blood Lust” for Halloween? Sexy and dark immortal fantasies πŸ˜‰ I am totally in love and enjoying the dark season a lot πŸ™‚

Achromatic – A Show Review

Zibska

Outfit: Zibska – “Gong”

Not too long ago, SCALA had – in cooperation with Windlight Magazine – a wonderful show going on, which I was allowed to walk as a model and as well to participate as a designer.

A collective of amazing designers were chosen to create this amazing concept and show. The theme was Achromatic. Achromatic means literally ‘without color’ but it as well can refer to greys, neutral colors and black…” you will find on Wikipedia if you insert the word ‘Achromatic’.

For the SCALA event, the designers were asked, to create something with bold shapes or colors. It was amazing to see how different various designer did interpret the given theme.

Outfit: Rayne – “Bad Secretary”

The runway as well was special made for this show. Redclaw Inshan, designed a wonderful white runway with some great geometric structures. This light and simple runway showcased all the amazing creations in a wonderful way. The colors really popped out of the runway and got a very special spotlight.

I had the pleasure to walk for some very amazing designers – Zibska, Ghee, Rayne, Riciell and Alpha Tribe. I would love some details on the stylings I made for the show πŸ˜‰

On the first picture above you can see the “Gong” outfit from Zibska. A very artistic and extraordinary outfit with the huge tentacles and the very impressing head-piece.

The second look, was based on the “Bad Secretary” outfit from Rayne. With the bold mustard and purple colors it made a real statement on the Achromatic runway.

Outfit: Ghee – “Prawn This Way”

My third outfit comes from ghee. With the “Prawn This Way” in black and the signal red makeup and headpiece, this outfit really is a head turning eye catcher.The tight pants and the modern shape of the top together with the colorful head parts and the black gloves really is a must have.

Outfit: Ricielli – “Kendal Jeans Skirt & Top” + R.ielli – “Annmarie Boots”

Last but not least, my 4th outfit came from Ricielli. The “Kendal” top and skirt combined with the “Annmarie” heels came with a huge color HUD so I was able to find 2 strong colors for the artistic white runway.

It was an outstanding show with a filled audience and to me the combination of a runway show, together with a huge art aspect really was something special.

Sometimes…

Lost Creature 01

You can take away all my love, what do I need it for?
You can take away all these words, there’s no meaning anymore
You can take away everything, leave me lying on the floor
All those sorry’s, we can’t go back to the start
You can’t fix me, I’m torn apart

[Leona Lewis]

Lost Creature 03

Sometimes life feels dark…

Sometimes life feels empty…

Sometimes you feel teared apart…

Sometimes you see no light…

Sometimes you just feel nothing…

Sometimes you do not know what to do…

… But then…

You open your eyes, still full of tears and look up.

You take the hand, someone is reaching out and stand up again.

My Bloody Valentine with Prism

02-19-2015-02a

On the 14th of February SCALA was having an awesome ‘Bloody Valentine’ fashion show. Who else that Honey Bender could come up with such an incredible idea and as a creative director at SCALA he helped to make this come true.

For all who missed the show… there is an amazing video on youtube, so at least you can get an idea about what I am talking.

BLOODY VALENTINE VIDEO

I felt very honored, when SCALA asked me to be part as a designer and I made 4 very special deigns for that but that will be a another post πŸ˜‰

Originally I was not counted in as a model as I try to avoid walking shows where my own creations are being showcased, so that I can fully enjoy the show and see what models did with my creations.

But I found my name on the list of the backup models and it was ok because usually at SCALA there are not really any dropouts. Since I am a good girl (yes even me sometimes) I went to the rehearsals so that just could fill in if really needed, since the walks at SCALA usually are not that easy.

After we tried the run order on this amazing maze –Β  yes we had a lot of fun by exploring where we have to go – we found one little issue and before I even realized I was pulled in for one outfit. And what me lucky girl got assigned?

PRISM! – YAAAAAY!

02-19-2015-01a

I know Journey McLaglen, owner and designer of Prism, usually gives me free reigns to style stuff and she does not mind, if I put my little weird and funky tweak on it :p

So … for Bloody Valentine show and me having free reigns … go figure, I had a lot of fun πŸ™‚

The “Tikka” outfit contains a red, short leather skirt and a creme kinda brownish top with an amazing looking print in the front wich perfectly matches the Bloody Valentine Idea.

First of all I wanted some heavy boots to go into a contrast to the more girly looking short skirt. I remembered some really funky boots wich I got from Remarkable Oblivion (RO), called “Hobnails”. With the cool open front showing some hungry teeth those were the right choice for the themed show πŸ˜‰

Now since the boots has such a grungy look I wanted to put on some socks and maybe some ripped stockings. :::insanya::: made those as a combination of exactly that… socks with ripped stockings underneath.

I did not wanna go with gloves so I thought about what else I could put on my arms, which felt kinda naked besides the amazing tattoo from Letis Tattoo.

I remembered a great arm gear from Death Row Designs. It comes for both arms but since I like asymmetric things a lot and both would have been too much I just put on the 3 parts for the left arm.

Since the whole look totally became crazy, I needed some crazy hair as well. Wich could do the job better that one of the amazing “Bizarre Hairs” that I have. Sadly the big folder I used to have disappeared some when and never came back. But some of my favourite ones, I got replaced by the very kind MyStiCa Matova, owner and designer of Bizarre Hair and so I am able to use the awesome “Angel of Elements” hair for today’s look.

To underline the Bloody Valentine theme, wich should make a total opposite to the usually sweet and nice Valentine’s Day, I wanted to go drastically on my makeup. REPULSE offers a lot of really creepy makeups and I could not resist to go for the “Worm Eye” for the right eye and a little “Forced Smile” for the left side of my mouth corner.

And last but not least, something I wanted to do in forever on a SL runway since I am used to do that in RL on stage when we play with the band… I wanted to smoke a cigarette and I know this was the only time I could get away with that :p.

I really had fun developing that look and I am very sure that the “Tikka” outfit from Prism would have never thought to be worn in that way πŸ˜‰
