Thoughtful…

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You’re frozen
When your heart’s not open
You’re so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret
You’re broken
When your heart’s not open

[Madonna]

Today, again I have some lingerie. Lingerie is always something difficult for me as I do not want something boring, nor I wanna over do it especially, if it is such a delicate and filigree lingerie like the “Iris” set from Salt & Pepper at the WCF7.

The set contains bra, panties and a HUD with 6 color options. Matching to that you can get the “Iris” collar which as well has a HUD for 6 satin and 6 metal colors.

The lingerie set is a wonderful mesh ensemble made of satin and lace. Salt always amazes me with her ideas for designs as well as with her detailed outfits and meshes, not even to mention her insane texturing skills. The lingerie is so body tight… on the first view you would think, it is a body applier, but it is really mesh work ON the body!

The tattoo is – how could it be different – from White Widow. It is no secret. that Julie Hastings is one of my favourite… if not my absolute favourite tattoo creator.

If you ever tried to make applier clothing or – in the past – layer clothing, you probably realized that making something detailed for the SL body is not easy. You have to fight seams, you have to fight blurry moments especially on body parts that allow more curves, as you never know who the shape of the users will be. If you look at Julie’s tattoos under this perspective, you only can imagine how much skills and time she puts in her creations.

The amazing shoes I as well found at the WCF7. Phedora made the awesome “Coax” boots with the huge HUD of 25 trendy colors. The knee-high boots have a wonderful laced front and around the legs they are held with straps and buckles.

I loved the interoperation of the several lace parts on the shoes, the lingerie and as well on the tattoo with the fishnet looking parts, that as well gave the imagination of lace.

Like I mentioned at the beginning most of the items are available at the Whore Couture Fair 7 (WCF7). The variety of designs on that event are just amazing. I am sure that there is something for everyone at that event and I will have for sure some more from there in the near future ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Whore Couture Fair 7 is really worth a visit as you have so many different styles of sexy, seductive and even provocative from some of the best designers in SL.The fair is open until March the 31st so you still have time to take a look ๐Ÿ˜‰

[Pauline Reage]

The Story of O is an erotic novel of the French author Anne Desclos written under her pen name Pauline Reage.

Published in 1954 it was a very hot discussed book, maybe that is why it did take Anne Desclos so long to discover herself as the original author. Desclos claims , that she wrote the whole story as a series of letter to her lover Jean Paulhan.

She shares dreams, imaginations and desires, which are nowadays are not anymore that ‘abstract’ than they seemed back in 1954 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Based on the novel, dresses got tailored, according to the description of certain dresses that Pauline Reage made in her novel. Over the time we have many different ones – 50 years are a long time to have several ideas for such dresses ๐Ÿ˜‰ all of them required an open font and back as well as a topless option.

One of them in Second Life would be the “Story of O” outfit by Salt & Pepper. The outfit contains the wonderful dress with a huge HUD to change the texture of the leather and satin of dress to six different colors and as well the typical collar and the cuffs for wrists and ankles (as well HUD driven). If you take a closer look at the collar and the cuffs you again can see the filigree details on the chains and as well the texture on the dress with the combination of leather and satin shows the amazing designing skills of Salt.

The dress is top less as described in the novel but to keep it PG I decided to wear a bra for the picture ๐Ÿ˜‰ The wonderful bra comes from Blacklace and is part of the “Niki” set in red leather & lace. To me it looked perfect to the “Story of O” dress ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the makeup I used one eyeshadow of a set I lately kinda use only, as it gives me the perfect look for colorful lipsticks. The “Noir Pack 06” from Zibska. I really do love either colorful lipstick OR eyeshadow. With the bright, shiny red lipstick from je suis, the light smokey eyes from Zibska looked just perfect.

Speaking of lipstick from je suis… Julia Merosi is back with amazing new lipsticks for Catwa and LeLutka! Her new sets really cover each color you can imagine and with each tone you get 5 different shades of the color you purchased and certainly if you are addicted to have always a matching lipstick you will get the fact pack with all of them :p

Roleplay is a huge part of Second Life, any kind of different communities are virtually living their dreams, desires and fantasies – Which one is yours?

Lingerie… innocent and delicate the same time ;)

Blacklace - Vivian 1

Again I had a lot of fun by playing with lingerie ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blacklace came out with some stunning news a few ago and today I would like to showcase the new “Vivian” lingerie from Blacklace. It comes in many different colors (always 2 in once pack), but I chose the nude/black version for today. I loved how the innocent nude fabrics going along so well with the delicate lace…

Blacklace - Vivian 3

I really do love the way how the applier lingerie works on the Slink mesh body. It has not a single blurry spot, everything is sharp and detailed shown, you nearly get the impression you can feel the lace under your fingers touching the screen :p

What could fit better to such a wonderful lingerie than beautiful pearls. The wonderful necklace with the incredible back view comes from AvaWay. The “Emmanuelle” necklace can be worn as a complete set or as 6 separate parts. For this post I chose the full set of the necklace. The bracelet I took from the “Taylor” set by Lybra and the super awesome ring was made by Tracei Moore.

Blacklace - Vivian 4

Lingerie should never be over-accessorized in my opinion, so I decided to just add the fantastic “Galla” pumps from Glamistry to complete the look.

Blacklace - Vivian 6

The awesome deco and furniture for the scene, besides the wonderful mannequins, I found at the actual round of On9. I kinda wanted something industrial, used looking for my set today to put out the fantastic lingerie even more ๐Ÿ™‚

You may have noticed, a new head on my shoulders… I am testing again, but that will be a new post soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wasteland Vamp with Asteria & Enfant Terrible

Asteria 1

Sometimes you put on an outfit and you already know what you want it to look like :p

Exactly that happened to me with the “Tanya” outfit from Asteria.

Asteria 2

The outfit contains the amazing top, high-waisted panties and the incredible gitternet skirt. The top is decorated with some delicate lace at the bottom and the panties can be worn with or without the skirt. It is available in many different colors, but since I am addicted to black, I certainly used the black option ๐Ÿ™‚

Asteria 3

With the golden metal studs on the skirt and the very cool collar with the long leather tassels, this outfit called for something additional golden to me and so I chose the “Emma’s Halo” head-piece from Enfant Terrible in gold.

The amazing long and elegant gloves I picked from the “Charlotte” outfit from GizzA.

Asteria 5

The “Patch Mechanics” from .shi and the amazing “Rift Lip Paint” from Deche just made the finish of the look to me. The awesome boots are made by [MODA]. The come with a huge HUD, that lets you customize the boots in any way you think, so you can fit them to your outfit.

The amazing scenery I found at the wastelands. I loved the shape of the structure as it went so well with the shape of the headpiece and just gave the right ambience and feeling to what I wanted for my pictures.

Pink Wonderland

Pink Alice 02

Yes… it is me… in pink! But no worries I took my pink allergy medicals :p

Sometimes you get special moods out of situations. Exactly that happened today.

It was time to sort and clean a messy inventory again and to go through all the stuff that I bought lately and had no time to unpack yet *giggles*

While I was doing that I found the “”Alice” hat from [sys]. The cool hat comes in 3 different version and for today’s post I decided to wear the fob watch version. If you are not a huge friend of pink you as well can have the “Alice” hat in other colors than that ๐Ÿ˜‰ The hat was created for the Alice in Sexyland event.

The pattern on the hat band reminded me of a wonderful dress got at the SAVIAD Anniversary done by FEROSH earlier this year. The”Neinette” dress in the ‘Fragola’ color matched the hat band so well with the fabric and pattern, that immediately the idea for today’s post was born. The dress comes with amazing spiked shoulder parts. The tight shape accents the fashionistas figure in an amazing way and the cleavage part has some nice cut outs and an amazing collar that surrounds the neck.

Pink Alice 03

The amazing face chain is one of our latest original mesh releases from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The filigree chain with the roses and the little gems hanging down added some playful and romantic touch to the whole look. The pack contains a left and a right version of the face ornament and ou can find it at The Fantasy Collective event.

The cool “Dragon Scale Bracelets” you can find at the current round of the Instruments made by United Colors.

To complete that lightly crazy but still sweet look I added the awesome “Tall Leather Thigh High Boots” from Slink in pink too ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cool flamingo came with the creations from Gizza for the Alice in Sexyland event and the color modified “Ballon Lights” are made by Kyoot.

Fantasy Gacha Carnival Dreams

Saz & Wicca 001

Dreams

Beyond, beyond the mountain line,
The grey-stone and the boulder,
Beyond the growth of dark green pine,
That crowns its western shoulder,
There lies that fairy-land of mine,
Unseen of a beholder.

Its fruits are all like rubies rare;
Its streams are clear as glasses;
There golden castles hang in air,
And purple grapes in masses,
And noble knights and ladies fair
Come riding down the passes.

Ah me! they say if I could stand
Upon those mountain ledges,
I should see on either hand
Plain fields and dusty hedges;
And yet I know my fairy-land
Lies somewhere o’er their edges.

– Cecil Frances Alexander –

Saz & Wicca 002

I am very happy to do a post again with the sweet and cute Sazzy Nirpaw. She was always someone special to me since we met and your ways never parted even of we did not talk every day. Lately we came more and more close and were talking a lot and since I started creating stuff and anyways have a brain like swiss cheese she had pity with me and offered to be my personal assistant. First I was hesitating, as I never has something like that before and the thought of someone working for me, a confused and crazy-weird person that mostly cannot even work with herself, kinda scared me and I had the feeling, that should not bother another person with my ADHD character.

But she did not give up being here and helping me. After some time I could not even think what to do without her and I finally agreed, that she now official is my PA and I do not regret it – I could not have chosen a better one ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Thank you Sazzy for being here for me and sorting my chaos.

The majority of the showcased items are coming from Enfant Terrible. One new upcoming brand that has all those extravagant goodies I love so much. For the Fantasy Gacha Carnival she did amazing accessories. So mark your calendars some when between the 1st and 28th of February to stop by and visit the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The ballerina shoes are available in February only at Enchantment and they will not be sold after.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 003

Sometimes you just do not know where to go or what to do, you feel torn inside and you only see darkness. Sometimes your inner only feels like a big fight and you have no clue how to escape.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 002

Sometimes it it hard to find words to describe what you wanna say. And I tried to find words for this post and they just did not wanna flow. A close friend of mine, who is way better with words and who knows me very well wrote something for me after i showed her the pics and gave her a lot of single words and emotions and I would like to share it as it really expresses, what I only could say with pictures. Thank you Mal for finding the right words for me, for knowing me and understanding me even without any words sometimes.

I am here – though I don’t know where

I am understood – though you don’t know what I am talking about

I wanna enjoy – ย though I don’t know fun anymore

I miss you – though I never know who you were

Crazy Connection: The question that matters

CC AD 1

The question that matters.

Sirena was a young woman leading a carefree life. She had a good job, no worries and the men courted her, though she did not really care for them. All in all, she did not really care for anyone but herself, using the same excuses we all tend to use. โ€œThat is none if my business.โ€ โ€œWhat can I do about it?โ€ or โ€œI donโ€™t want to interfere.โ€

She lived close to the graveyard and when the weather was fine, she took a shortcut there from the bus home. One evening, she saw a woman on a bench, crying bitter tears. The woman looked at her, but Serena quickly looked away. When she was about to leave the graveyard an old witch โ€“ by the looks of her โ€“ stepped into Serenaโ€™s way and asked straight away โ€œWhy didnโ€™t you ask the woman why she cried?โ€ Serena was a little scared and mumbled, I thought she was mourning, this is a graveyard after all. What can I do about her grief?โ€

The old witch looked at her sadly and shook her head. โ€œDear girl, you need a lesson in compassion. I hex you not to be able to leave the graveyard until someone shows you the sympathy you denied that woman.โ€

CC AD 3

Serena did not know if to laugh or to be scared, the old woman had disappeared as sudden as she showed up. Serena headed for the exit but ran into an invisible wall. She tried to get out at another spot, but to no avail.

Whenever she tried to talk to someone, they ignored her. After a while the place took its tribute, her eyes burnt out from crying over her own sad fate, her nails grew into claws, in short, she became a fearful sight. People started to run away from her thinking her a demon of some sort.

One day, when she was sitting numbly on a gravestone mulling over her fate and feeling the pain of being ignored, she finally learned her lesson. For the first time, she did not cry out of self-pity, but for shame and pity for all the people she had ignored all her life.

Suddenly she heard a warm male voice behind her. โ€œExcuse me, can I do anything for you?โ€ She felt the curse break and when she turned round she saw a man, just like herself smiling at her. โ€œI think you can go home now.โ€ He said.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Sometimes you just wanna be with the cool kids ;)

WiccaMerlin_Closeup_HauteMagazine_November2012_04

Sometimes you feel casual but still wanna play with the cool kids ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is no secret that my favourite color is black and so I wanted to try a black and cool casual look. The look originally was created for the latest HAUTE Magazine of Leah Mc Cullough (http://hautesl.com/latest-issue/) but I loved the look and the picture so much that I decided to put in on the blog as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ At this point thank you so much LovelyMiwako7399 Menna for such an awesome picture ๐Ÿ˜‰

As I made the styling it still was very cold outside, but since the winter seems coming back in germany… it again matches the weather perfectly.

The pants and the jacket come from DeLa as well as the neck- and arm warmers. For the pullover I decided to wear one of my long time favourites from LeeZu.

The glasses I found at Steinwerk and for the hair I used one of the older styles of LeLutka. What I really like are the mesh ears with the tubes that you can get at Mandala and I use them a lot lately for the casual and grungy stylings ๐Ÿ˜‰ It really is fun if you try to make a casual simple styling and then you find this accessory in your inventory and that glasses and then maybe a bag… and all of a sudden you are far away from any minimal idea :p.

And now I will go out and see if I can find some cool kids to play with ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Proud Butterfly

Evil Butterfly Half

Once, a beautiful, shiny and colourful butterfly was flitting from one flower to another. She saw a baby elephant coming down the path. She flew to him and sat on his ear. The elephant asked, “Who are you? Where are you going?”

The butterfly proudly replied, “I am the most beautiful of all the butterflies. You are ugly and fat. Your body is heavy while I am delicate and light. People are jealous of my colourful wings. I can fly anywhere with these wings.”

The elephant calmly said, “I am glad to meet you.”

The butterfly went on, “There is no comparison between us. You have four legs but I have six. You have a trunk and I have something like that too but I use it to suck nectar from the flowers. You cannot do that.” Just then a strong wind blew and the butterfly could not keep her balance. She cried for help as she was flown away in the wind. But the elephant stood firmly on ground and thought, “I can see how pride has a fall.”
