“Dark Swan” or “Do we ever have enough pumps?”

Today I am very happy to showcase the amazing new “Cassie” pumps from [Gos]. Who can say no to such an amazing sexy, pointed toe pump with that kind of high blade heel? We all know women can never have enough heels so lets take a look on the newest release from [Gos] for November round of FaMESHed.

[Gos] always was one of my favourite designers in SL and for this month they have some really exciting changes and news. The HUDs have been updated and from now on you do not have any words in a menu, you get a HUD that has little colored squares and so you just have to click on those to customize your shoe to your style and favor.

Cassie – Boutique HUD (includes 18 current, in-season colours & 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options perfect for any fashionista)

With the new “Cassie” pumps you have 3 different HUDs available in your pack. The Boutique, the Blueberry and the Metallics HUD. The Blueberry HUD will be a new addition for future releases, so you can coordinate your amazing Blueberry clothing perfect with your incredible [Gos] shoes ๐Ÿ™‚

Cassie – Blueberry HUD (includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry plus 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options)

Each HUD has a different number of colors on it as well as options for the sole, metals and lining. I only snapped a few colors to still make the full beauty of the show visible but as you can see there is a wide color range and you won’t hardly find any color where you cannot find a match in your “Cassie” HUDs.

Cassie – Metallics HUD (includes 10 metallics & 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options which will have your feet shining)

The “Cassie” pumps are made for MaitreyaLara, Belleza and Slink high feet. And now the unbelievable… That full pack is available at FaMESHed for only 495 L$. That is a steal of a deal!

Now I would just take a closer look on the rest of my look for today. To not over accessorize the shoes I decided to go for some body tight clothing. the lingerie I got longer ago from Apple May.ย  I loved the high-waisted panties and the look of the completely covering bra. The “Tigress” set are 2 appliers, which can be used on Slink and omega compatible bodies. For the harness I found the cool “Black Bird” harness from PurpleMoon. It just perfectly went with my lingerie and I loved the little wings in the back. To pimp the bra a little bit I added the “Skeleton Clamps” from Salt & Pepper which are a hunt gift for the ‘Once upon a Nightmare’ hunt. They are meant to be worn without any bra but I loved the look so much on it ๐Ÿ˜‰ The more I styled the more a dark swan grew in my head.

But I do not wanna bore with more text as I know you probably already trying to TP to FaMESHed to grab your “Cassie” pumps and I will put all the style details with LMs anyways below the last picture as always ๐Ÿ˜‰

Play the Trumpet?

Today I am very happy to showcase another amazing design of Faster Pussycat, one of my favourite designers and a great friend of mine as well.

This time it will be the “Trumpet Jacket & Pants”

I always loved the designs of Faster Pussycat, as they are so amazing out of the box. Honey Bender, owner and Designer for Faster Pussycat, together with PoosyKat LittleBoots do both have a very special taste for fabrics and color, which I love a lot.

This time it is a neat combination of blue and gold with some amazing patterns on the pants and parts of the jacket. The texture and the shape or the jacket remind me of a past time uniform type – or those 19th century music corps style – and together with the modern pants hold by a simple rope that is put through huge framed holes, it makes a great contrast.

The neat accessories come from LeEnfant Terrible. She has such an amazing quality on her items and they are all so detailed that they were the perfect addition on the amazing detailed “Trumpet” outfit.

since the outfit had a more masculine feeling to it, I again wanted to go with a contrast on the hair style. I chose the “Jaily” style from EMO-tions. With the puffy curls and the loosely wisps, together with the amazing rose attachment it looked perfect for the idea I wanted to go for. The rose attachment brought me on the “Shippoa” choker from Mandala for the necklace.

For the makeup I again did a mix and match of Nuuna’s makeups… yes I am totally addicted to her bold make up ideas. To Nuuna’s always is kind of charter makeup, that can set strong statements to a certain look. With the busy and detailed outfit, I wanted to do more editorial looking pictures to not miss the details on the styling. I more and more love to experiment with editorial shoots and new angles that are not looking that common, so this picture session really was fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

Autumn Mood with an Artistic Touch

Arts in Hats Tres Bau 7

Today, it again will be a post with lots of pictures, as I again could not decide which ones to use for the post so you will get all of them ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was starting to style today with one of the new hats of Tres Beau for Art in Hats. Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau, created 2 wonderful hats for the event and the “A Feather in your Cap” hat immediately caught my heart.

Arts in Hats Tres Bau 6

The black hat is textured with a wonderful detailed fabric. The asymmetric shape totally is my cup of tea, as I like the non even things a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰ The hat is decorated with amazing colored feathers, held by some delicate gems, which connect them to the hat.

When I first put it on, I had to IM Kimmera and asked her, if I have to behave or if I may go wild with it :p .

Her answer just was “Wow me!” Oh dear… going wild is one thing but wow someone who I adored for years and who I respect highly… that is going to be a hard task…

So I was thinking about, what Tres Beau means to me and about the wonderful woman who is behind it. So I was certain about elegance and as well chic but as well about art and high quality.

When I was thinking about what I could wear to the hat, Asia Rae contacted me and surprised me with one of her own designs. When I tried it on it immediately formed an idea in my mind, about what I wanted the pictures look like.

The strappy top and the wonderful short skirt, were the perfect match and as well elegant but also modern and trendy. So the “Sona” outfit became the choice for the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย Now the hard choice of shoes was coming up. When I started looking through my shoes I realized that I recently got incredible artistic shoes from Maichore and i tried on the new “Piotr” heels for the slink high mesh feet. With the totally extraordinary shape of the huge heel, the filigree meshwork around the foot and the amazing little details, those shoes were right perfect for today’s look!

Now last but not least I had the desire to add some “Wicca twist” and looked or makeup when I kinda stumbled over the “Maiden Face Mask” from DE Designs. Having this mystical half mask I felt the need for something special for the hands as well, that gives the whole style a certain touch. The whole look already turned into a warm autumn kind of style and I decided to use the “Dryad Hands” from Figment. Those turned my hands into tree parts and the idea for the scenery was born in exact that moment ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the hairstyle I needed something that goes well with the hat and as well does underline the little smart touch of the look. The choice fell on the new “Izzy” hair from EMO-tions. The hair at the moment is sold at the On9 event until the 4th of November when the actual round closes. With the long “braided braid” coming over just one shoulder I could perfectly balance out the asymmetric hat without dragging away the focus tooย  much.

One last look… yes that look really matched everything I was thinking about ,when I started to imagine what I would like to go for the “A Feather in your Cap” hat from Tres Beau!

A Lonely Dancer

Zibska 10

A Lonely Dancer

A fallen dream…I hit the ground of Eden
For a last time…
A bleeding vision…an ancient prophecy

Zibska 9

White wings still burning…
I’m hidden in the dark…autumn never ends here
Forever trapped in the wings of eternity……
I gave you shelter…a place without fears
Oh, now I’m dancing with spectres of heaven……
A burning symbol bleeds – A deathless path ends
Did you realize what we have done?
A burning heart cries – A deathless love begins
I realized, life is just lies…
That bleeding vision shows us a true life
White wings are burning…
A lonely dancer…so far away from you
Sad melody dies – forever love lives…
A burning symbol bleeds – A deathless path ends
Did you realize what we have done?
We’re living in a new paradise…a painful journey begins
We’re wasting intentions of life…we’re wasting all of our sins……
ย 

Zibska 1

We are wasting all…a lonely dancer
This is the last serenade…this is the last serenade
This is our last serenade…a lonely dancer…I am…
A burning heart cries-A deathless love begins
I realized, life is just lies…
We’re living in a new paradise
…a painful journey begins
We’re wasting intentions of life
…we’re wasting all
My fallen dream…it seems a broken mirror
In a lost time…
Ethereal vision…ethereal prophecy
White wings will fly again…
Until then a lonely dancer I am…will fly again…
Will fly again…a lonely dancer I am…I am…

Avantasia for THEMA Magazine

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 002

Avantasia

(some when in the future round about the year 2525 maybe….)

Be aware of the life on Avantasia before you venture into this world in the climax of war and anarchy, their enemies, the sirens of Venus who else.ย  The Avantasians are a complex race but by no means should they be underestimated, from their flexibility to the swifness of their long sharp talons, their catlike movements ooze in deadly elegance and subtle seduction as they prowl their world in search for the ultimate in style to seduce their next victim…I mean mate.

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 005

Sometimes you just need 2 to 3 pictures and you end up with 9 and cannot decide which ones to use. That happened to me when I made my pictures for the actual THEMA Magazine (http://issuu.com/themapublications/docs/thema_terraefirma)

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 003

The theme was Terrae Firma, and we was asked to create pictures about a new race of the existing planets or a new planet. When Tayler told me, I was immediately sure I wanted to create a new planet with a new race.

I wanted to do something still fashion related and human but to the same time, futuristic and apocalyptic. I love apocalyptic movies and art and so I watchedย  a few of my favourite movies while I was styling.

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 010

The first piece that came to my mind was the “Lucian Hat Nox” hat from Machoire. An incredible headpiece made of so many filigree parts and textured with such a great feeling for materials.

This amazing art piece is available in different colors, wich you all can see at the Machoire main store or at their website (http://machoire.blogspot.fr/)

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 007

Now I had to find something what kinda showed evolution for the future but still has a human aspect for the whole look.

The head-piece gave a rough idea for the general colors, back and some kind of metal should be the basic.

So started with a super old but still amazing top from Muhi. One of the brands I really miss in SL as they always were up to date and very fashion forward.

I know some people are against wearing old stuff and tell always to delete older things, but I am going more with my belly feeling and keep old things which I really like to combine them with new things. That sometimes can make a look very unique, as long as you keep the general style up to date and modern. Certainly some things are outdated some when, like the super old skins or hair, wich automatically let you look like 2007 :p , but for some clothing pieces and accessories that might not be the case ๐Ÿ˜‰ . As well I would say there is a difference in wearing old things for a picture or on the runway as some of the older things just react weird with movement, especially if they have huge static prims or sculpties, wich can look better with a nowadays mesh prim that actually moves with your properly.

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 004

To add a modern touch I put on my “Lavinia Leggins” in anthracite, which I made for my store Wicca’s Wardrobe. With the leathern garter belt over the leggings – one piece to wear – it got a strong and powerful look but as well some sexy attitude.

To finish the basic human look I added hells from Death Row Designs with some heavy chains and a huge plateau heel.

Now the challenge started to develop the human race forward to fit in the futuristic and apocalyptic environment, that I had in my mind for the new planet and race.

The first idea was the “Demonhands” from Death Row Designs. The sharp claws are important to fight and survive on the new planets face.

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 006

I so many apocalyptic movies females wear corsets in some style and this made me add one corset of Trilobite over the “Asymetrical Bodysuit” from Muhi. And what should not miss? Some weapon looking accessories. Those I found as well at Death Row Designs.. I bet you can tell I love this store really a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

ย The finish was the “Centipede” spine attachment, that comes with a wonderful tattoo layer. The tattoo makes the spine look like, as it would grow out directly off your back.

All the poses used in this post are from Del May, one of my favourite pose makers beside PosESioN or Corpus to just name a few.

And like I said in the beginning, It was so hard to decide between all the pictures I made, that this post is a little bit picture heavy ๐Ÿ˜‰

I would like to thank Taylor Wassep for this amazing opportunity and the great inspiration of her theme. The THEMA Magazine is for me really kinda an art exhibition with amazing stylists and photographers and I am feeling very honored that I was allowed to be part again ๐Ÿ™‚

Bird of Paradise – News at Silken Moon

Silken Moon - Simone 001

A new skin arrived on the grid! Silken Moon released a brand new skin. “Simone” is the perfect skin for all who wish to keep their young look. The skin is very detailed what you will see if you take a demo and look at the body. It is made very realistic looking. Every pixel was placed with love and thoughts. The high lights are incredible awesome set. For example the collar bones are wonderfully accented, to get the imagination of a well shaped and beautiful body. “Simone” comes in 8 new and different skin tones. If you purchase one of the “Simone” skins you get a lot of additional extras with it. Each skin has 2 cleavage options, an eyebrow shaper, Slink hand and feet applier HUDs for all 8 tones and as well an open and a closed lips option with matching prim teeth for the perfect smile ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Besides the natural tinted eyebrows you get some real crazy coloured eyebrows like green or pink and you get one tintable option to make it any color you like. For some it might also be interesting that Malicia Python, mother and creator of “Simone” and owner of Silken Moon, offers a free service for Lola appliers as well.

The makeup which I added on “Simone” as well comes from Silken Moon. The “Autumn Eyes” in gold so repeated the lines of the amazing clothing. The whole set of the “Autumn Eyes” contain wonderful dark and warm colors, wich are perfectly for the actual season. Usually I do not wear any eyebrows anymore but with the cool options of the “Simone” skin I could not resist to add some green eyebrows that went with the outfit so well ๐Ÿ˜‰ . The lipstick is one of the new “Simone Lips” in lavender.

Silken Moon - Simone 002

But Malicia did not only release a new skin… she as well made some amazing mesh clothing like the “Paradox” outfit. The “Paradox” vest and pants in the peacock version caught my attention as i never saw such a rich textured outfit in so many different colors that go so well together ๐Ÿ˜‰ Usually I am more the black type, but with the beautiful pattern of the pants and the amazing texture of the vest it was just a ‘must have’ for me. There is way more variations of the “Paradox outfit at Silken Moon and you can combine, mix and match all of them with each other. The dark teal, green texture goes along so well with the ‘cool pale canvas’ version of “Simone and I could not resist even red hair to all the colors and wild makeup combination ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

To add even more color and repeat the orange tone of the hair and the “Paradox” vest, I decided to wear the new “Kaya” set from Lazuri. With the amazing menu that does let you recolor nearly every little part of the set it was easy to set the gems to orange and get some gold and wooden look for the metals.

The poses are from the latest release from Corpus. The “Lounge Series 001” are a full set of amazing sits. But we all know Corpus for unusual and amazing editorial poses and so the new set is not just a bunch of simple and usual sit. You have half laying poses like i used on the first picture and as well some ground sits in it. A real must have for every blogger and photographer!

And there is me the Bird of Paradise, unbelievable but trueย  in strong and bright colors ๐Ÿ˜‰
