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.”

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!

Necrotize is live – One of the most cool events recently, at least for me *winks*. Second Life Syndicate (SLS) again outdid themselves with a super unique event. I love their personal vision by bringing that special cyber-horror event around the Halloween season.

I will have a bunch of posts probably and again some with Redclaw – I already forced him to get some male designs, even if he keeps complaining I would fill up his inventory just for my picture obsession and blogging*giggles*

But lets take a look at all those amazing designs now. My outfit certainty is one of the new releases at Necrotize coming from .{PSYCHO:Byts}. A wonderful ‘lingerie’ matching the cyber-horror theme in perfection. It is available in 8 different colors and for my todays post I chose to go with the vibrant red one. The outfit contains top and panty and as well connected to the panty are the super cool spikes attached to the hips.

The extraordinary boots are located at Necrotize as well and made by cinphul. I saw they made matching arms as well which I need to get later, too! The boots are really creepy and the toes look like predator claws, while the boots itself have a super awesome decor as well with little wholes and spooky elements.

Speaking of spooky the kick ass makeup and lipstick made by Suicidal Unborn, the decor I used from Dreamcatcher and the scary bone collar from ERSCH you can find as well at Necrotize as well. The event is really special and if you are into dark fantasy it is a definitely must go for you to discover all the amazing releases and gifts the designers put together!

Another new release, but at the Kinky event comes from Eclipse Art Studio. Shina Shan – owner and designer of E.A.Studio – made some cute little horns right in time for Halloween (not that I just would wear them for Halloween though :p ). The “Magnus Horns” come with a huge HUD so you can customize the skin and as well the horns itself easily to your needs.

To complete the look in a perfect way I used the new “Decadence HD Eyes”, which Madame Noir released at the Darkness Event. On the HUD you will find 13 different colors. What really caught my eyes is, that there is not a real iris or black middle of the eye, you just see something at the bottom that reminds me on vampire teeth – makes the whole look even more freaky, creepy and dark!

Tomorrow is Halloween… damn it again came so fast! I wish there would be one or 2 weeks more for me, to get every post done I planned for that. But then.. who says I cannot just go on with dark and scary things in the darker half of the year *winks*

Today I have a picture for you, which I created for my exhibition at the L’autre Oeil Gallery. They asked me to create 3 pictures for a special exhibition called “Halloween & Goth”. When I saw the Incredible “Plague Skeleton Creature” mask and hands from DRD, released at The Warehouse Sale, it was a must to use them for the picture idea that I had! The hands even come with a BoM layer to make a smooth seam between the hands and arms. While I was styling, I realized that CerberusXing just released new horns at Necrosis another cool event for this season you should not miss out!

The cool tattoo, which perfectly matched the look, I found at Nefekalum Tattoos and the awesome, filigree outfit was made by ERSCH.

This time of the year is like my personal Christmas season. I do love all the dark, mystic and scary things – I know… no news so far – and I can promise, that I already have a few more ideas in mind in that kind of style, for my next few blog posts 😉

Candles raise my desire
Why I’m so far away
No more meaning to my life
No more reason to stay
Freezing feeling, breathe in, breathe in
I’m coming back again
Hazing clouds rain on my head
Empty thoughts fill my ears
Find my shade by the moon light
Why my thought aren’t so clear
Demons dreaming, breathe in, breathe in
I’m coming back again
I’m not the one who’s so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did want to be here again
And I don’t remember why I came

Time Warp!

TUNES

It’s astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely
Not for very much longer
I’ve got to keep control
I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me
And the void would be calling
Let’s do the Time Warp again

[Rocky Horror Show]

And again we are at Mainframe with the designs of todays post. I really love that event, it gives you so much crazy and awesome things to play with. Today I wanted to post something about that super amazing time portal from Ex Machina. It is a huge design, so I had to think about a way to showcase the full creation. I didn’t want to just stay in front of the portal and started playing with the idea of being swallowed by it :p – That was the outcome of that and I really enjoy that thought.

I do love the song above and it is basically a song that has a lot of meaning to me and Red and it was just perfect for this pictures and post. In general it is not always easy if you have to hide parts of your life even to close friends just because the ‘society’ doesn’t really appreciate or understand them. I am not only talking about BDSM or D/s, but as well as things like a male loves a male, or a female loves a female, or if you have a job that other won’t understand whatever it would be. As well as if kids do not have any label clothing because they do not have a rich family, but do not want anyone to know about that when they go to school or meet other kids. There is many things that people have to hide in all kind of ways to make it through their life. The older I get the less I do want to hide things. They are a part of me and they do make me to what I am now. Even for being a musician, I often had to say I am teaching music or I do work somewhere else and just do music in my free time or on weekends. Over 20 years ago when I started my music career, music wasn’t something that was considered as a job and I often heard “And when you will learn something proper to pay your bills?”. Sure it wasn’t the life of a millionaire, especially in the beginning I had to do a lot of side jobs to make sure my bills got pair and it wasn’t only fun all the time. The longer I followed my personal decision, the better it became and in the end I was able to prove them all wrong and made my life out of music completely and it feels awesome.

Why other people or the so called ‘society’ do think they are allowed to tell one person, what to do and what not to do as long as they do not violate the law? Since when law should be able to dictate who you love, or even worse what gender you love? Just because certain religions and a lot of old fashioned people think that would be right? At school we teach all of our kids, the gifted ones and the non gifted ones that they can do what ever they can imagine in their life and be happy with that… and with that we lie to them already, as so many factors will force them to just do something that is accepted by our ‘society’ somehow. I am not anymore a rebel that only fights against exactly that ‘society’ and tries to break free like people in the 70s already tried – I am too old for that and I am way more critical about certain things these days, even if sometimes my punk breaks free and needs its room as well from time to time 😉

Even in SL when I started modeling, people tried to tell me what I should do and what I should not do and that made me even more angry than in real life. Again, I am always talking about things that do not hurt other people or violate the TOS and the law, I am talking about things like “You can not wear shaved hair and piercings while you are in a gown” or “You can not jump between style categories, hair colors or  wear wings, elf ears and hooves to a casual spring dress!” or “If you blog for this store you should not blog for that store as they do not really like each other!” – WTF!!! This is SL! I can do what ever I please especially on my blog, my pictures or my wardrobe! No one pays me a monthly salary and can dictate my Second Life for that! I can make decisions and like in real life I have to be able to stand behind them even if I can not be everyones darling then, which NEVER works in both lifes anyways on a long term if you do not want to lose yourself. You have value, your life and opinions do have value… in our modern times there is no room for hate about religions, races, nations, other opinions and new inventions or fictions. Our past should have taught us, that we need free spirits to evolve and that hate never brought out any productive. Sometimes we need to know a person before we can judge about them and even if we do we should never try to limit or tell them what they should not do – we should encourage them to tell us about their ideas and ideologies and even if we decide that they are feeling right for us they feel right for them and need to be heard. I do not know, if that makes any sense and I am well aware of that a nation needs rules, traditions and laws to work, but all of that doesn’t give anyone the right to destroy others lifes, or make it miserable, as long as they are not guilty of a heavy crime. I am sick and tired of hearing what would be the best of me, when I can feel that this comments are just made out of jealousy, vindictiveness and power games. I did survive – RL and SL –  with going my way. I did not hurt too many people in my life and those I did hurt, if I realized it I at least had the decency to apologize and see if I could make up for what I did wrong – but you only can do that if you have friends that have the strength and grace to tell you and not just go away and talk bad behind your back. I am grateful, for all of those that stuck to me through both lifes even if I had my moments and arguments with them. They helped me to become what I am now – even if I am still no millionaire, I found luck and satisfaction in my life and as well my place in my life. There are still days, where other people try to shake and rattle my pillars and the principle, sometimes it even still hurts, but they do have a way more difficult task to do as they had to in my past. I am not saying I know everything, or I am done learning in my life… that probably never stops and I am always open minded to what ever crosses my paths, but it isn’t anymore that easy to turn my life upside down and make me question everything I experienced and learned in my life.

Just imagine, what would feel more nice if you meet a new person in your life… to look a them, judge them about their first view and words or just smile, be friendly and see what they to have to say on a second view? They might have solutions for things you did not yet found some… they might have to hide things on your first meeting as they are scared you will judge them and turn around leaving them without even really knowing them, or have given them a chance to show you who they really are? And… just turn it the other way round… how you would feel if you are judged by your cover and not even given a chance to show who you really are?

I would like to close todays post with a quote from an En Vogue song, as I really believe in that every day more, the older I get:

“Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don’t be so shallow.”
