Future Fashion with Finesmith

Again I was in a funny mood and tried to find a way to show case the new Finesmith “Aphrodite” set. In the end, after trying different looks and styles I got stuck on a future fashion vision. The set contains earrings, necklace, bracelet, ring, lip piercing and the fantastic helmet. Again yula Finesmith created something extravagant. I never saw a jewelry related helmet before in that way. She included this helmet in an awesome way to the whole set. The set is sold in separate different colors but as well a huge fatpack , where the jewelry again has yula’s great color change menu. The menu let you change the metal parts in 2 ways. The petals can be retextured for another color and the spiked as well. Also the gems can be changed in color with the menu. “Aphrodite does not only have simple metal textures that you can change in color. Every texture has wonderful ornaments that decorate the basic metal, very filigree and light but they add an extra touch of noblesse. The lip piercing for adds the edgy touch and is a cool accessorie for the whole set. The color driven set and all the single colors you will find at the Finesmith Mainstore ๐Ÿ™‚

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss Australia 2012 by Tres Beau & Finesmith

Again we have a wonderful gown by Tres Beau combined with Finesmith jewelry that made it in the Top 12 of Miss Virtual World 2012… even more this combination of the “Miss Rissa” gown of Tres Beau and the “Tribal Glam” set from Finesmith brought Miss Rissa Friller – Miss Australia 2012 – on place 2 of the MVW contest this year. Lets take a look on the gown first. Kimmera Madison again showed her incredible skills of making textures and designing a stunning evening gown for Miss Australia 2012. The basic is made in silver. Silver is not an easy color for clothing in second life, most of the textures look grey and do not have any shine. But not for Tres Beau. The long experiences and the awesome skills of Kimmera Madison make this gown shine in a stunning silver attire. The ornaments look beautiful and give the gown even more highlights as it anyways has. The tight gown makes an awesome silhouette and the big mermaid skirt is a wonderful contrast to the shoulder free top of the gown. The ornaments are brought adorable on the gown so that you can move and pose without stretching this wonderful textures, again something that is not that easy I was told. So, no wonder that Miss Rissa Friller became the 1st runner-up for MVW 2012. The stunning gown is now available for everyone at the Tres Beau Mainstore.

For the jewelry, again we can see how close the designers work together to create this incredible looking styles. Yula Finesmith outdid herself again with catching the style and shape of the wonderful ornaments that Kimmera put on the gown. The swirls she did for the necklace, the bracelet and the ring are breathtaking awesome. Yula as well picked up the colors and made a firework of art with colors and design for this beautiful “Tribal Glam” set.The earrings, 2 little flowers,ย  are so unbelievable filigree and little, what again shows the incredible skills of yula Finesmith. The love for the detail yula and Kimmera both have in an awesome way. The great “Tribal Glam” set is now available at the Finesmith Mainstore.

Showreview: BOSL Fashion Week – Avantgarde

Today I was allowed to walk another show of the great BOSL Fashion Week. The theme was Avantgarde and again the BLVD Models had to style their own vision of avantgarde… but we as well had a premiere… our Editorial Clarity-Flux dared to walk the runway for his very first time :p For sure I had to ask him and his beloved husband RicoRacer Flux-Clarity if the would pose with me for my blog post opener pic and… they said yes!!! The result is the pic above! *happy dance* What a feeling between such great styled guys!!!

Ok Wicca… stop drooling… back to work… *coughs*

Again, as in the ‘Virtual Super Heroes’ show the BLVD Models had the freedom to style as they please to show off their very own vision of avantgarde. It was a hard decision and I made way more looks than this one… but this was the one that in the end, wich I was wearing on the runway ๐Ÿ™‚

I started with one of the new designs of the latest Miamai Black Label line – “Ungud” out f the Chod Collection. The big sleeves that cover the hands and the huge neck collar got my attention as I saw it the first time. Then I remembered the wonderful “Caged Birds Skirt” made by Faster Pussycat. I just change the color of the pigeons a bit ๐Ÿ™‚ We got eyeshadow from blackliquid and I added my longtime favourite lace tattoo from Obscure. The boots as well are from Miamai and the amazing headpieces I found at Lode. For jewelry I chose parts of the “Noir” collection of Finesmith Designs.

The show was great fun aI would like to thank all the people of the BLVD family who made this incredible show possible ๐Ÿ™‚

Oceane Body Design – Skins for the Fashionista

Lately Morgane Batista told me about her favourite skin maker…Oceane Grumiaux, owner and designer of Oceane Body Design. Morgane made me so curious that I had to take a look at Oceane’s store. I was not able to look for long before Morgane popped in there as well and made me meet Oceane herself. I have to admit as I was looking around I really was surprised… Such great realistic and detailed skins…lashes,ย  makeups, eyes and eyelashes… why I never was here before?!? Oceane herself is a very kind and nice person and we started taking. In the end she gave me one of her wonderful skins and one of her makeup packages. Please let me introduce “Terry”…

As many know I am a very light skin type usually and so “Terry” in cream was the perfect skintone for me. The body is wonderful and such high quality in every detail – really amazing! Such awesome shadows and lights give the whole skin a very realistic look.

What really got me was that all of her makeups fit perfectly on her skins. often if I was wearing lipstick the original lip color of the skin came through on the boarders or even through the whole lips. For that Oceane made a natural skin variation where you can add all of her makeups and it looks like they are originally on the skin.

On the top of this picture on the right side we have the natural version of “Terry” without any makeup. On the left upper side we have the “Terry Smoke” variation. The 2 on the bottom are the first of in total 10 makeups that come with the “Mistress Mood” makeup package.

The lips are stunning with a very light gloss, but not too much and the eyes are beautiful dark smokey eyes. I never thought that I could enjoy so many different red and pick shades and that each one looks so different on the total look. I definitely will keep Oceane Body Design in my mind now and I am curious about new makeups and skins in the future of Oceane Grumiaux ๐Ÿ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Puzzle Styling in a Crazy Mood

For the very first “Claim the Fame” TV show I put together an outfit that I liked in the end so much that I decided it will become a Wicca’s Wardrobe styling ๐Ÿ˜‰

Many people know my addiction to take different parts of ready mae outfits or even many single parts and put them together to make a new look out of them. The styling for this post exactly was such a ‘puzzle’ mood ๐Ÿ˜‰ The pants are part of the Gizza “Diamond Catsuit” in silver. For the corset i chose one of Trilobite my favourite corset maker named “Leather V” in coal. The top… yes I name it top even if it is justย  a bit more as a collar*giggles* comes from Kyoot Army and carries the name “Wilted Wednesday Vest”. The “Black Peahen” gloves by Glam Affair without the fingertips matched perfectly for the look I wanted to have. For the “Igaly Darkness” Boots by Eshi made a wonderful repeat of the look that the “Valeria” earrings from Finesmith Designs have – yes I so love that earrings ;). As well from Finesmith Designs are the “Draakje” nails that are only available in size 10. My hairstylist for this look was dianny3636 Aeon with her “Xia” hair attachment and the matching hairbase in black. The artist that made my wonderful tattoo was Shanea Parx from Wicked Tattoos. The skin is one ofย  my 2 actual favourite made by Glam Affair called ” Mary” in the light tone. The armlets I found at Rozoregalia as a part of the “Hydra” line.ย  For me a perfect everyday look for the crazy and daring fashionista ๐Ÿ˜‰ The poses of the yellow pictures I got from Diconay Boa, genius designer of CORPUS poses. If you need poses for pictures or even poses that are out of the box you definitely should visit her store and take a look. The amazing “Cycle Dancer” of the pink picture I found as a prop in 3 different colors with 16 different poses at Posies.

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Colorful Spring Mood ;)

Yes it is me even with colors *grins*

The weather was so nice and the sun kissed my pale skin and I remembered some of the latest releases of LeeZu and started to put some together ๐Ÿ˜‰ Rare but true Wicca can go colorful and casual as well. The warm sunbeams kissed my face and decided to go red and yellow for a bit ๐Ÿ™‚

The top is made by LeeZu and called “Miss Tre’s Blouse” in red. The sweet ruffles and the awesome sculpted collar really had the right touch for my spring look.ย  One of the latest releases by LeeZu were the “Cortez” pants here in light vanilla. You can decide if you wanna wear them with or without a shadow. For the belt and the straps on the right leg you have the possibility to change the texture with a HUD that comes with the pants. The belt and sleeves of the pants are made of awesome sculpties as well that give a lovely realistic look. To bring the yellow color more out I decided to wear the “Cat Tights” in yellow. To complete the lookย  I took the “Esprit de Sable” boots in red from Courtisane, “Ayana” inย  messy blonde from Miamai and the left “Kayma” earring made by Finesmith Designs. The skin is my actual favourite still – the “Castalia” skin from Glam Affair ๐Ÿ™‚

Now it is time to go for a walk and show off my new styling idea on the grid ๐Ÿ˜‰

La Dolce Vita – Mea Culpa shows how beautiful it can be ;)

“La Dolce Vita”ย  – wich better name could such a fantastic gown have… Tatanka Kaligawa again showed his creativity if it comes to style and design.ย  A wonderful gown in 3 different colors that caught the theme of the name.

A tight long skirt with an amazing combination of transparent lace and a wonderful opaque texture with an amazing shine. The skirt is decorated with 3 sharp long spikes on the right side.The skirt itself that starts at the lower legs is made of wonderful lace that underlines the filigree and aerial theme of this gown. The waist is decorated with another lace part on each side of the hips. Another wonderful accessory is the chain belt that surrounds the waist so perfect.

The top is a little piece of art itself. Again Tatanka shows his great skills if it comes to textures. The top is a combination of different fabrics and ornamented textures that go perfect together. The sides are open and give the whole gown a lightly sexy touch. The sleeves are made of a wonderful filigree lace with amazing ruffles at the end. This sweet ruffles you also can find as a frame for the deep neckline framing a wonderful looking cleavage.

Another great eye catcher is the hat that also is part of the outfit. The big lace hat gives the perfect “La DolceVita”ย  feeling and is the perfect accessory to give the whole gown a very elegant touch. Again we have the 3 long sharp spikes this time on the left side.

My totally highlight for this outfit is the incredible beautiful and detailed mask. It is a tattoo layer so only to use with one of the new viewers that feature tattoo layers, like SL 2.0 and higher or Phenix, Imprudence, Emergence or all the ones that have this special feature. Again we can see the love for the detail that we know from Mea Culpa designs. Every little thing is made so perfectly. Again we have 3 spikes above each eye and an amazing decoration of long flexible “whiskers”

Overall this gown again is a wonderful piece that shows how artistic fashion and couture can be. If you have time just visit the Mea Culpa Mainstore and see all the other great news ๐Ÿ™‚

Shine, Glitter and Glamour from Violator

(Outfit: Violator – “Posh-Glitter” /purple -Bikini Version, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Again I have the great honor to show you 2 of the latest releases of soraya Vaher, designer of Violator. Both of the new dresses have an amazing glitter texture that shines and sparkles much more if you can see it in world on your avatar.

First I would like to show you “Posh- Glitter” in purple.

(Picture by Annough Lykin)

This sexy dress comes in 2 versions. The first one we can see on the picture above is the gown version. Amazing prim attachments only cover the needed parts and show off lot of skin and the well-shaped body of every fashionista. attached parts seem to wave perfectly round the body and the glitter texture gives the whole outfit a very elegant touch.

(Picture by Annough Lykin)

The second possibility to wear that gown is a very short and sexy bikini version, that lets every males heartbeat go higher ๐Ÿ˜‰ A tiny chest part goes round the chest. The belly and the back are totally free and make this outfit to an awesome sexy eyecatcher for the upcoming summer season. The lover part of the bikini repeats the great chest part as a lovely waist part and a long flexi tentacle goes down in the front and in the back. The fantastic umbrella also comes with that amazing outfit. As always Violator created matching shoes to that amazing outfit. The “Violator-Scream of the Raptor-Glitter” in purple are the perfect pumps for this dress.

Anyways in wich version, this outfit is a totally eyecatcher for every event. As an amazing special Violator made a matching jewelry set.

The “Posh Jewelry Set” in purple makes the perfect addition to the stunning glittering dress, anyways for wich of both versions!

For the gown version the outfit contains also a very cute purse with the well-known tentacles ๐Ÿ˜‰

The second outfit carries the great name “When the Night Comes – Glitter” and for my post it is the black version.

(Outfit: Violator – “When the Night Comes-Glitter” in black, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

A beautiful black short dress with dreamy flexi prim parts will make you the queen of the evening on every party! The shoulders are covered by a fantastic edgy boa and only a tiny chest part covers the private spots. Long wavy parts go down from the chest over the belly nearly to the ground and make this outfit very elegant looking.ย  The hips are covered with a small belt looking prim part that also carries long parts that reach down to the amazing “Obscurite Glitter Boots” in black. This pumps perfectly match that outfit. It is unbelievable but the whole dress is made of prims and does not contain any clothing layer! The blindfold gives this outfit a lightly mystical touch. A sexy leg band that reminds of a garter decorates the left leg.

The “Posh Jewelry Set” here in black also fits awesome to this dress. The big, spiky earrings are decorated with 2 gems in the middle and the choker is flattering the neck with some edgy parts and it looks as it was made for this dress also and give a very stylish touch. As we saw it for the “Posh” dress also the “When the night comes” dress includes a cute little purse for all the needed things a fashionista has to have with her ๐Ÿ˜‰
