And so it went
The children lost their minds
Beggin’ for forgiveness
Was such a waste of time
And the bullets start to fly
And the bough’s about to break
When you hear them cry
It’s too much for me to take
They said the world does not belong to you
You are not the king, I am not the fool
They said the world does not belong to you
It don’t belong to you
It belongs to me

My Rage…

TUNES

Everyone’s a sinner, baby
And so are you
We don’t really need a reason
For the things we do

[- De/Vision -]

Yes, finally I found myself in the new Avalon head, but that was quite a journey and without someones help I probably would not have made that…

When I tried the 3 new head releases of LeLUTKA for the Skin Fair 2021, I first liked Ceylon the most. After fooling aournd with all 3, it turned out more and more, that the Avalon head features most of the things I like for Wicca’s face. It takes me in forever if I am finally willing to change to a new head, to find the right skin, the right mods, make the perfect shape… that is why I usually avoid changing heads often for my main character – blogging other heads is a totally different thing, that I actually enjoy, as I can built a character I have in mind at that moment when I do the pictures.

I wanted to try a look with an Albino skin – as I always loved the special features of that very special kind of skins – plus my I had the imagination my “no brows” policy would look lovely with that. I tried various skins from various brands inworld and from Marketplace. It seems I have a different vision of an Albino skin that most of the other have. All I found was either something Goth/Vampire looking or some cute, pale, rose skins with glowy cheeks and/or glossy, kissy lips kinda girly/dolly looking – that was not what I wanted…

A little frustrated I gave up on that thought and just went further with looking for pale, porcelain looking skins. And as fate plays out, you find what you are looking for completely unexpected. I was looking though one of the weekly sales events and my eyes got stuck on a skin. Unfocused and fidgety as I am, something came up and I got distracted. A few hours later I had a talk with Vivien and she reminded me of that skin again and I jumped over there trying it. When I saw what it did to my head, I was just speechless. I never had heard from that skin brand before and what I saw did really blow me away. A skin, very detailed, amazingly toned and without the typical girly look on it even without any face mods – not yet as edgy as I like it, but better than anything I was trying before. Certainly it was just the face as so often lately – I come from a time (before appliers came who made it reasonable to part the skin in body and head as you needed one applier for each) where skins used to be in one piece and not split up in head and body if both are “layers” (BoM) – so I took a look, how much the body part would be and how it looks on my body. I was amazed when I saw, that the body skin had an affordable prize as well and so I got face and body skin.

Back at my working space I sat down and worked on my shape for hours – If you ever tried to make a new shape from scratch, you know how long that can take. After 5 or more hours I finally was satisfied and happy and wanted to share my result with dear friends of mine. So I knocked at their screen with an IM and got a teleport. When I arrived there, I still was so excited about my new “me” and asked, what both of them would think about and I got weird and confusing answers like “Maybe you should fix your eyes they are poking out a little” or “Maybe the piercings need a little adjustment as they look out of place”. I was completely confused… I usually look very closely on my attachments and how can rigged eyes made for the head look out of place?!? I mean I know both of them are perfectionists like me and so I started struggling and caming on myself again, but I didn’t see what they seemed to see. So I did a gayzo and showed them my view. I got 2 gyazos in return and my blood froze in my veins – THAT was not even close to what I saw. The first things I could imagine was trying to undeform my avatar, which didn’t do anything so I came to the idea of toggling my shape with an older one… and then I was shocked. When I opened my current outfit folder, I saw that I am not wearing any shape at all! It was a huge surprise, because usually you cannot take off a shape completely! I went to my shapes folder and realized, the shape I was working on wasn’t there at all and some of the shapes I made the days before were missing, too. I opened the last safed shape and looked at the date and it said 3rd of March – We have beginning of April now!!! WTF?!? Ok, we all know SL and how it can act up sometimes, so the first thing I did was I relogged, hoping that it would just be a bug and that would fix it. When I came back, the shapes were still gone and I realized there are other complete folders missing too in my objects folder. Slowly panic raised up my throat and I thought I might have to clear cache, since I didn’t do that for a while – again nothing… I know it is just Second Life and I know that a shape isn’t something to whine about. BUT if you spent like a whole day to make something and then it is gone, you have nothing to remake it 100% again, as you didn’t make notes of any numbers… It IS god damn frustrating and I found myself in a mixture of madness, sadness, anger and rage. It was at the middle of the night and I was the only awake person in the house, so I could not even talk to someone and yell out my feelings to get rid of them. But if you have really close friends on SL, they even can “smell” though the web, over the ocean, what you are going through and all of a sudden you get an unexpected call. First I was scared to take the call as I didn’t want anyone to hear in what a condition I was, but if you respect someone, value his friendship and especially if it someone that shares your certain lifestyle, you better pick up that call. So to the mixture of already existing emotions, I felt nervosity adding and I was lightly scared as well, but I took that call – it turned out that it was the best thing I could have done. Even if he sounded serious and partwise firm, he calmed me down and he pulled me out again from that dark corner I was starting to draw myself back to. I still was mad about what had happened and sweared to just trash the whole idea of that new head and go back to my existing one. But that didn’t seem an option for him either and he tried to insist on the fac,t I just should restart from scracth and that if I made it once, I can do it again. At the end of the call he sent me to bed to get some rest and to a fresh restart on the next day – I didn’t see that happening at that point, but since the sun already was rising, I logged out and went to bed. I still hoped it was an SL bug and maybe I would login the next day and everything would be back to normal.

Certainly that wasn’t the case and I alredy switched back to my old look when I got an IM with a new vendor picture – The Hunger tattoo, which kinda became a trademark for me on my old face, made for the new EvoX heads. DAMN… suddenly I did remeber that I was harassing him at least 3 times yesterday, to make a version for the new EvoX heads – he said he would do that when he feels like it is time to do so. And now…? I felt it was kinda on purpose, to force me back to work on that new Avalon head… how mean… and how effective! Today I just wanted to do a quicky of my new look, but I will take those glasses off soon to showcase that incredible new version of the Hunger tattoo made b Nefekalum Tattoos. This new version for EvoX comes in different colors and matching materials for your LeLUTKA EvoX head. The reason why I am saying that, would be that I know it will go on the Wanderlust Weekend sale on the 10th and 11th of April and you have the unique chance to get that incredible, amazing design for only 50L$ before it rises to its regular price at them Nefekalum Tattoos main store!!!

Thank you Sir Skye, for catching me in that particular night and for the time you spent to talk to me… and certinly as well for making me sit down on my ass and work on that shape again 😉

She’s got a brick wall behind her door
I’d travel time and confess to her

All the pain we’ve endured until now
All the hope that I lost, you have found

I am still fooling around with the new “Ceylon 3.0” head from LeLUTKA. I wanted to try the classic button on the HUD to see what the head looks like if I choose that genius option, plus I wanted to see how my face mods (which are all not yet EvoX compatible) look on that face and what they to do it 😉

For my set I used some of the new group gifts, which DRD offer for their new store opening. You won’t believe it but every section has its own group gift!So you can get 5 at once at the moment!!! What is even more cool.. they packed some of their older designs into a huge container (you can find that at the right side of the building at the landing spot) calling it “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”. “Some” might be a little underestimated as you can find like 700+ items in there and DRD will keep adding stuff. Now the unbelievable… it only costs 4000L$ and you will get a lifetime free update! So the price might grow up over the time, but if you get it now… you get all the coming goodies for free!

Now you might want to know where that kick-ass cool outfit comes from… it is a mix and match of 2 AsteroidBox designs. The shirt you will find at the actual round of Anthem while the shorts should be at the main store by now.

I still see so many cool things in that “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”… I should get back to my platform and build some more scenes with them for new pictures 😉

“Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It’s a rule.”

[- Laurell K. Hamilton -]

For the current issue of the Eclipse Magazine, again I was allowed to showcase a role play genre. My choice this time was Vampires. I wanted to cover the more traditional and vintage side of it as well as the modern one.

For the more traditional, Victorian one I had the great pleasure, to get some company from Vivien Delancoure. It is always fun to do picture with friends, but usually I just do not dare to ask, as sometimes I take ages until I have my final pose, shot and background. I hate to waste others peoples time. With Vivien it was different. She is a blogger as well, making wonderful pictures and creates most of her poses by herself – Just take a look at her Flickr HERE. So she knows how long it can take and that made me brave enough to ask her, if she would like to join me for a picture. Her style is usually goth-romantic or dark romantic, which already was perfect for what I was going for. She was so sweet and patient and made the whole shoot to a lot of fun combined with a lovely chitchat 😉 I have a feeling, that this will be not our last shoot together as it really was awesome to work with her.

Thank you Vivien, for your time, patience and a new growing friendship I do not want to miss again 😉

My style you can find – like usual – below this post. For Vivien’s look, just take a look at her blog HERE.

What a week… don’t you hate that, if things go like 180 degrees the other way as you planned it? I am one of those, who like to at least plan a week ahead, what I do have to do, what I want to do and what I am supposed to do. I usually hardly can focus on things and I keep forgetting things very quickly – my friends know that and thank god they are not too mad with me usually *snickers* – and that is why I usually at least make a rough draft on a piece of paper or my calendar for each week.

Corona and the closing of the schools already messes that up weekly and if something else comes across, it can instantly become a disaster. That is what happened the past week. Blessedly it did all calm down and I finally could manage to get all done.

That gives me the time to post today. I know the Puppet Show gacha isn’t a new release from Moon Amore, but sometimes things need time until the “kiss me” and I know what I want to do with them 😉 I do enjoy the changeover from new releases, things I got because I liked them, but didn’t have the right inspiration and all time favorites. Many tried to tell me a blog always has to be up to date and you only can use things once – I completely disagree with that. My blog is my personal sandbox and I can play the way I like to play 😉 Certainly I will have new releases which I found in stores and on events, or amazing designs I got from my incredible, awesome sponsors, but as well there are times where I just can fool around with things out of my inventory and create pictures just the way I feel in that very moment 😉

Exactly that happened a few days ago with the Puppet Show gacha from Moon Amore and I really enjoyed playing with it as you can see ♥

Blessed Be

A new year has begun… 2021! Let’s see what it has for all of us 😉

We are still in the dark season and I am enjoying doing the darker stuff anyway – but you know that already.

Today I am posting something which I planned to put into a magazine but apparently it wasn’t released in December as planned. I thought before it vanishes into the Nirvana, I will add some more pictures and make a blog post out of it 😉

So here we go!

Most of the designs I found at the Saturnalia event (I really hope they will do more events as their team really does amazig work and something different) –  such a super amazing event, directed to the more traditional and naturally side of the Christmas time. To me it was such a relief to see that Christmas isn’t just all shiny gold & red, not just the Santa Claus, Cola Truck, modern, profit-oriented, video game console Christmas. There is people like me who can see the more traditional, mystical and nature-loving Christmas – or even remember what Yule means 😉 For those who do not know, just lemme show, what Wikipedia has to say about it, as it might sound better than me trying to describe it with my limited English words *snickers*

“Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time” or “Yule season”) is a festival historically observed by the Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the original celebrations of Yule to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht.

Later departing from its pagan roots, Yule underwent Christianised reformulation, resulting in the term Christmastide. Some present-day Christmas customs and traditions such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others may have connections to older pagan Yule traditions. Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule are still used in Nordic countries and Estonia to describe Christmas and other festivals occurring during the winter holiday season. Today, Yule is celebrated in Heathenry and other forms of Neopaganism, as well as in LaVeyan Satanism.”

[- Wikipedia -]

I am still at home while the state is fighting and debating weather to open up stores and schools again or just one of both or none… to me it slowly becomes a joke and the measures get more and more opaque and difficult to comprehend. People get more and more disaffected. And even if I hate to admit that, I start understanding them. They are not against any rules – I am not speaking of all those who deny the existence of Covid or those who spread weird conspiracy theories – the normal mainstream crowd, who just don’t understand all this back and forth politics. How you can say schools can be open with 20-30 people,  inadequate hygiene standards, while bars and restaurants who invested hundreds or thousands of Euros to exactly follow their given rules and as soon as they had everything installed and working, they get closed again while schools and kindergartens are still remain open… anyway, I am not the one to make changes or decisions, but I slowly can understand those how get annoyed and frustrated.

I just will stick at home as much as possible to not risk an infection because of my mother and partner as they are both counted as group at risk members. I will teach and give music lessons online and trying to keep creative in SL and make the best out of it 😉

Happy new year and blessed be!

“The deal was I wouldn’t kill you. I reckon you got a bargain, don’t you?”

Again I do have some amazing designs released at the Necrotize event! As mentioned before Necrotize is an event run by Second Life Syndicate. But who is Second Life Syndicate? The 3 genius minds behind that are Ylva Korhonen, Akira Voorhees and Helena Stringer – certainly they do have an amazing team and people that collaborate with them, but those 3 are the heads behind events like “Engine Room”and “Necrotize” and many more. Second Life Syndicate is not just only an event group, they are as well having a huge website where they provide latest news from the grid like sales, other popular events, freebies and group gifts from so many different stores. What I do like a lot is that they do have a lot of galleries, which make it easy to look through before you have to TP around yourself – I know… sometimes I am lazy, but I really enjoy that! You really should set a book mark for https://secondlifesyndicate.com/ to be informed and not miss out on any awesome deals!

Now lets take a closer look at today’s style with all those amazing new releases at Necrotize…

The amazing outfit was made by AsteroidBox. It already looked amazing on the vendor, but when I unpacked it I found – besides the color HUD – a super cool style HUD! What a genuine idea to give the possibility of having the lower pants hide-able for higher boots or the arms parts so that you can add armor or, like I did, the incredible “Dark Night Arms” from DRD! Speaking of those arms… they do come in so many different colors and you even have some bloody ones there, too!

What as well caught my eye when I saw it, was the amazing jawbone cover from Reliquary. A metal lower jaw with so many amazing details… simply awesome – you even have some metal teeth! The scary face tattoo was made by Rainbow Sundae and it perfectly matches with the body tattoo coming from Persephone – both Necrotize exclusives as well. You still have time to go over and look at that amazing venue, built by Walton F. Wainwright, owner and designer of ContraptioN. It did remind me of a combination of the Alien movies and some of the good old H.R. Giger designs, which cartainly became popular as well with the Alien movies again. If I can find a time when the event isn’t that crowded, I really would like to just snap some pictures there, too!

Ring around the Rosie
Pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes
We all fall down
Ring around the Rosie
What do you suppose we
can do to fight the darkness
in which we drown?
Ring around the Rosie
This evil thing, it knows me
Lost ghosts surround me
I can’t fall down

Today they Bloggies took place, the Blogger and Vlogger awards done by BVN. I was nominated in quite a few categories and so when I got the taxi to the celebration event, I did throw on something as formal as possible for me – I do not own one single gown anymore – and took the ride to the Seraphim sim, where the event took place. I never expect to actually win something as the competition is huge and there are so many amazing people nominated.

A lot of people were there and it looked all very festive and classy – I again felt so miss placed *giggles*. I am not used to go to such celebrations or awards, eve if as a musician in RL we had some… I just can’t get used to it for what ever reason. When they started the announcements and who won all the categories (yes there were quite a few :P), I still felt somehow excited and nervous. Even if you never really count to win something, the hope that it nevertheless happens sticks deep inside somehow, I guess that’s human after all.

But all of a sudden I heard the speakers saying my name and I was like “Wait what?!?” and it seems, I won the Best Shoe blogger award! O…M…G…! Thank you so much for everyone that voted for me!

If I remember correctly I got a few awesome runner up placements:

Best Accessories Blogger: 1st Runner Up

Best Roleplay Blogger: 2nd Runner Up

Best Fantasy Blogger: 2nd Runner Up

Best Review Blogger: 1st Runner Up

Best Photographic Editing: 2nd Runner Up

Most Improved Blogger: 1st Runner Up

If I did name the category not exactly right, I am very sorry but when I heard my name again and again I was so excited that I might not have the 100% correct description of some of them *blushes*

Again thank you to everyone that voted for me that really means a lot to me!

But now lets take a lok at my today look as I do have some freaking, amazing designers to showcase!

Yesterday I had the honor to be asked if I would like to blog for {PSYCHO:Byts}… if I would like?!? YES!!! Certainly I would LOVE to! I do love that brand for a longer time and alraedy blogged the designs quite a few times *dances around* And her we go – my first blog as official {PSYCHO:Byts} blogger with the kick ass amazing “Nekhbet Mummy Arms” released at the Salem event. The arms are rigged for Maitreya and Legacy body only. With the huge HUD you can customize the skin, the bandages, the leather parts and the buckles. As well on the HUD you will find 3 buttons called “Whole”, “Half Sleeve” and “Hand”, which gives you even more possibilities to wear your awesome new arms.

CerberusXing and DRD have some hyper cool news as well, fir exmaple the super cool leg bandages I am wearing you can find at The Warehouse Sale event and the incredible mask, which reminded me aboutthe SAW movies , which I totally love, is one of the hunt gifts at the Hallow Manor event! DRD is participating in so many events this month, you better safe your money to get all this amazig designs: Salem, Satan Inc, Fameshed, Hallow Manor, Epiphany and The Warehouse Sale!

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

[-The Rolling Stones-]

This time of the year usually feels the best to me. I can be me without getting asked if I am ok or if something bad happened *giggles* The season allows all the dark fantasies, creepy imaginations and scary moments with Halloween coming closer and closer.

I have so many ideas in mind i really have to channel them and thin about what I want to post next. I know I still want to showcase some of the amazing designs of the Engine Room while it still is running but I had to bring todays pictures first as it was itching so bad in my fingers. I made this pictures already a few weeks ago for an amazing exhibit at the L’autre Oeil Gallery and it already was hard to wait until the gallery opened *grins*

It is not a secret that I do have an addiction for the more darker side of fantasy. Recently a few people asked me why I am always wearing black or dark colors. They tried to challenge or even tease me, that it would not be difficult to create dark images with dark colors, while it would be way more difficult to manage that with light or pastel colors. Now since I have an super cute evil Kawaii doll daughter, who does really scary but pastel colored art work and pictures, I thought I would take n that challenge and chose to do the color I usually avoid the most to create some dark fantasy – PINK!

CURELESS has a perfect gacha released not too long ago, which was perfect for that project – The “Moirai Sisters” gacha. I took the amazing torso as base for my look and mixed and matched other designs with it. Since I thought it is kinda a sick idea, I used the super amazing “Welcome Home – Asylum Photo Scene” as background and decorated it with several items from DRD, CerberusXing and Remarkable Oblivion.

For the pose, I went to Le Poppycock. I did remember, that she released a gachas with that amazing skeletons. When I arrived there, I discovered she did not only have one! With the “Nyctophilia” gacha I found the perfect poses/props for my idea.
