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 😉

Crazy Connection: – M.o.w.’s Style –

I already posted about that Dahriel and me discovered an amazing cool shop for casual clothing called M.o.w. We both already blogged about that brand in the last days and we thought we maybe could do one together 😉

As we started to do pics together none of us yet had the idea of where this team work would bring us. But after the pictures got seen by a few ppl and we got a quite nice and good response on them we talked more and more doing pics and posts together. Lately a magazine approached us if we would not wanna share a few pics and the style cards for a small column. That was the moment when the “Crazy Connection” was born, because we needed a name for the column and as well for our teamwork 😉

Dahriel as always is way faster as I am with the pictures so he already started the post with the picture and the style card. I asked him if he would mind if, I add some words to it and my edited version of his snapshot.

So for today and the first official post of the “Crazy Connection“, Dahriel and me styled some of the M.o.w. designs that we both got. As I still cannot snap pictures with shadows, Dahriel made the snapshot and send it to me. The picture you can see at the beginning of the post is the version Dahriel edited. I could not resist this time to work a bit in Photoshop as well on that amazing snapshot and at the bottom I would like to share my version as well 😉

We used the “Pleasure” couple pose of PosESioN, that Dahriel made lately and soon will release in his Mainstore as well 😉

I hope you all enjoyed the birth of a wonderful project and give Dahriel a warm welcome to “Fashion Addicted“. I hope that we will have many “Crazy Connection” posts besides Dahriel and my single ones.

Detention at MVW Academy

Last days I walked through the MVW Academy corridors and suddenly I heard a mega off one of the class rooms. As I went closer I peeked through the little window in the door and saw half of a class running around, shouting. Some where pulling each others hairs and some were throwing stuff against each other… I opened the door with a light smile as this reminded me of my own high school years. If there was no teacher the students freak out and start doing crap. And my memories were completed as I entered the room. All of a sudden it went quiet and all eyes were focusing me, in an asking way, what I would do here… As I started explaining my memories and that it lightly made me sad that they all went so quiet, I saw out of my eye corner in my back one girl who tried to place some glue on the teachers chair and as they wanted to prove me wrong a little paper ball hit my forehead. The suddnely I saw them both – Pow and Temptress –  pulling each others hair… I grabbed the 2 girls by the arms and pulled them closer looking at them… Finally I came to an idea… if they chose to put me in the teachers role so badly (yes I still do not feel like an adult most of the time :p), I decided I could get some detention out as well and told them, that I think they would have too much free time and that I can change that for a while…

I told them that I wanna have 2 looks created in the next 15 min. The first look should be kinda city chic style, like they would go out for shopping in London, Rome or Mailand. The second look should be a crazy future fashion… nothing that quite did happen, more what could be fashion in the future… and on the 2 pictures you can see the results :p. The did a pretty good job on the tasks and I wanted to share the funny story along with the nice results as well 🙂

So MVW Academy students… be careful how you show you have too much free time in the future *grins evil*

I really had fun and a special thank you to Pow Curameyer and Temptress Fallen for playing along the victims so cool, to make this funny story happen 🙂
