Back in Black

Yes I’m back in black
Back in the back of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet I’m a power pack

[AC/DC]

Yes… finally black again :p

Today with [sys] and Blacklace.

When I first saw the “Passenger” outfit from [sys], I fell totally in love with it. I anyways have a fable for non symmetric looks and that outfit itself already has that!

The jacket has along sleeve on the left side and is only held by a strap on the right side while the pants are right the other way round. The amazing straps over the belly and chest just add a wonderful, sexy touch to it.

You can wear it without any lingerie as well – and probably that would be even more sexy – but I liked a lot, how the lingerie looked like under the outfit. (Plus I was more safe to sit anywhere in public without any scandalizing views :p)

The amazing glasses I found at Minimal. I Loved the different look with the parts the cover the ears like headphones. I love futuristic stuffs anyways and the cool “Power Glasses” just have the right amount of futuristic and nowadays touch to it and matched perfectly my today’s look.

The amazing nail polish was made by ChloeElectra for her bran .alme. She recently came up with some adorable new nail polished on several events – I guess I should think about a nail spotlight soon – but some of her older ones are kinda long time favorites for me. The “Silver Lines” which she made in dark and light are one of those. with a solid color on the nail and a little silver line towards the finger at the end of the nail, they are just super amazing for all kind of styles and still look special because of that metallic line.

Even if I force myself more and more to try on colors .. black will always be my fave 😉

Summer Trend 2016 – Denim Shorties (featured in Eclipse Magazine July 2016)

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 01

Look #1

When Trouble asked me, if I would like to do a few pics for the upcoming (just released) Eclipse Magazine, I just said yes without even thinking about actual summer trends, as I really do love to take pictures and work with magazines. Then he immediately asked me, what summer trend I would like to go for… I did not look over all the summer trends the past few days, so I jumped to google to be informed before I choose.

While I was looking over all the amazing summer trends something immediately caught my eyes… Denim Shorties! All kind of shorts, mini skirts, used, with fringes and what not… That sounds like fun!

I told Trouble about my idea and he seemed to like it. First I thought this would be easy as I really do like denim in RL and SL, but I shall discover soon it sounded easier that it was in the end…

Look #2

So first of all, I looked through my inventory what kind of shorts, shorties and mini skirts in denim I would find – hell I had no clue how many non useful things I have when I type ‘denim’ in the search of my inventory…

 Most of my favourite denim things are still layers and I did not wanna use old layer items this time… and the next problem – a usual problem with mesh items – sometimes different mesh parts do not fit over each other.

But after some serious searching, I found a handful denim shorties, which I totally love. Now I just need to style them. Because I was told so often, I always only do extreme styles and mostly dark and gothic looking ones, I wanted to do 5 totally different styles for this little spread in the Eclipse Magazine.

Look #3

For my first idea – Look number 1 –  I started with the “Booty Shorts” from [M.o.w] together with the “Havana” short and head wrap from [sys], the first look went to a more boho type of style. For the accessories I went with the “Vilma” earrings and the “Sile” necklace from Kunglers paired with the “Wooden Bracelet” from artilleri.

Look number 2 is based on the “Briony Shorts” from Erratic. For that look I was inspired by a picture I saw from a country side advert, which told about the great lake sides in germany 😉 To achieve the summer casual look, I added the “Polly” top from Asia Rae and the amazing summer floppy “Laila” hat made by Zibska. For the shoes I chose the “Tropicana” wedges we made for Wicca’s Wardrobe (Yes Grand, we did that.. once *snickers*) The look I was going for,was something trendy, summer looking and as well something simple and kinda ‘girl next door’ looking.

The 3rd look, I wanted to do something more fashion forward in a hipster or clubbing look. I started off with the “Wendy Denim Skirt” made by GizzA. A super short denim mini skirt. First I added the “Dead Romance” tank from Mon Cheri, a tank I used for various styles already as it is a perfect top to go for many different looks and the sizes are made amazingly with the thought to wear something underneath. The mega trendy “Pulsar” glasses and backpack certainly come from [sys], the home for unusual and futuristic designs 😉 The cool boots I found at Stelloane.

Look #4

For Look number 4 I wanted something that I would wear RL as well. Some loosely casual but trendy and chic. something I would use for shopping or just go to the university or drink a coffee out with some friends. I always liked the ‘college girl’ look even if I am not in that age anymore 😉 The “Boyfriend Jeans Shorts” made by Maitreya, are one of my long time favourites. With their loosely fit they are a great everyday wear. I combined them with the “Liliana Top” from Glam Affair and put on the “Batschkapp” we made as a gift for the Indie Teepee event. Even if I like all 5 looks that might be my personal favourite out of them 😉

My 5th and last look is some more native and maybe gypsy looking. The idea came out of some pictures I saw of american native fashion trends. The denim shorties for this style come from GizzA. The “Loose Denim Short” was a perfect start for the idea I wanted to go for. With the lightly dirty looking fabric and the ripped trims it was just perfect to add a more simple, and light top. The “Julia” top from Asteria perfectly went with the shorts and kinda put them more in the focus. The cool necklace was one of the first original mesh releases from PurpleMoon and the incredible hat and back bag again came from [sys].

It was great fun to explore and try different things for this special spread of denim shorties and I have to admit, I found some goodies in my inventory, which I already forgot that I have them 😉

The other Me…

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 001

I have seen another sky
I have climbed another tree
I have wished another star,
above another star lit sea

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

And I have seen another sunrise,
and another lightning storm
I’m not just the me you see
You see another me was born

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

Somewhere I’m happy
I’m smiled at understood
In another Place I lift my face,
not hide it in a hood

[Lyrics by Jim Sturgess]

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 002

First of all I would like to thank Malicia for the time and the base idea for this pictures. She came up with the mirror idea and as well donated her mirror to the shooting 😉

We both wearing the newest gown release of LeeZu. The “Saphire” gown is a fully mesh made gown. It is available in many different colors but for the post we had to choose 2 and so we decided to go with plum for me and black for Malicia. The wonderful shoulder piece is to add single so you can even decide to go with or without it. As well part of the outfit the little hat is. The amazing little hat with the tentacles just adds the little extra elegant and couture touch.

The jewelry I chose to wear is made by Lazuri for the MVW 2014 contest. The “MVW 2014 Eva Luxury” set is an amazing set containing 2 types of earrings, bracelets, rings and a wonderful necklace made of 3 parts wich gives you the option to wear it in 3 different ways. As for all the amazing Lazuri jewelry the set is menu driven and you can recolor all parts to kinda customize the set to your likings and needs.

For the poses we needed some mirrored ones. For a long time I asked myself,why some pose makers made these and the only reason I could think of was, that you carry something in your hand that might be on the wrong side for the pose. But today I discovered, that they can be very useful if you want to do pictures like that as well 😉 So i went with poses from *PosESioN* and Morgane Batista.

The shoot and preparing was fun and I hope Mal will be with me for some more posts in the future 😉 It is rare if you meet people, that you go along so well and SecondLife gifted me a wonderful friend not only in SL anymore. Thank you Mal, for believing in me and being such an amazing friend for me in both worlds 🙂 .

Mal & Wicca FullFinal

“I’ve done a lot

God knows I’ve tried

To find the truth

I’ve even lied

But all I know

Is down inside

I’m bleeding

And super heroes

Come to feast

To taste the flesh

Not yet deceased

And all I know

Is still the beast

Is feeding.

And crawling on the planets face

Some insects called the human race

Lost in time

And lost in space

And meaning.”

[Lyrics from the Rocky Horror Show]

Lyrics:

I wanted you to know
that I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high
steal your pain
…away.
I keep your photograph
and I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high
and steal your pain

cuz I’m broken
when I’m lonesome
and I don’t feel right,
when you’re gone away

you’ve gone away
you don’t feel me
anymore

the worst is over now,
and we can breathe again
I want to hold you high
and steal your pain
There’s so much left to learn
and no one left to fight
I want to hold you high
and steal your pain

cuz I’m broken
when I’m open
and I don’t feel like
I’m strong enough
Cuz I’m broken
when I’m lonesome
and I don’t feel right
when you’re gone away
