Stand my Ground

TUNES

Stand my Ground

I can see
When you stay low
Nothing happens
Does it feel right?
Late at night
Things I thought I’d put behind me
Haunt my mind

I just know there’s no escape now
Once it sets it’s eyes on you
But I wont run
Have to stare it in the eyes


It’s all around
Getting stronger, coming closer into my world
I can feel that it’s time for me to face it
Can I take it?

Though this might just be the ending
Of the life I held so dear
But I won’t run
There’s no turning back from here

All I know for sure is that I’m trying
I will always stand my ground

Stand my ground
I won’t give in
I won’t give up
No more denying
I’ve gotta face it
Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside
If I don’t make it, someone else will
Stand my ground

Wild Fairy Dance

saltpepperemotionseve-4

TUNES

I wandered alone to the forest one night
Led by a music strange to hear
And followed the glow of a shimmering light
That seemed to grow distant as I grew near

The woods were alive with the fragrance of spring
But winter was everywhere clear to see
The moon shone bright and a bat on the wing
Beckoned me closer and said to me:

“A clearing close in the forest you’ll find
A fabulous banquet, a fairy ball
If you close your eyes and you open your mind
The veil disappears and you’ll see it all”
saltpepperemotionseve-1
When I closed my eyes to the shimmering light
All memory faded and I could see
That a mushroom circle of red and white
And myriad fairies surrounded me

Beyond all space and beyond all time
On gossamer wings did the fairies fly
With a joy unknown to a music sublime
The fairies danced, and there danced I

“Those who seek us surely find us
See the trail we leave behind us
Some bewildered, some enlightened
Some are brave, some are frightened

saltpepperemotionseve-2

Are we kind or are we vicious?
Nectar poison or delicious?
That, my sweet, you will discover
Fairy foe, or fairy lover”

Come and play as the wild fairies play
In a magical circle, a fairy ring
You won’t want to leave and forever you’ll stay
Where the vision is bright as spring

Come and dance the wild fairy dance
Spin in a circle as fast as light
Once you begin you are caught in a trance
And the world can grow old in a single night

I wandered alone to the forest one night
Led by a music strange and clear
If you happen to pass when the moon is bright
And the veils are thin you will find me here
If the veils are thin you will find me here

Sweet & Cute

azul-5

A babydoll in black.. that sounded like a challenge for me*grins*

I really do have a cute side even if it mostly exists in the shadows πŸ˜‰

azul-8

The amazing “Brigitte” babydoll from AZUL, dragged out that sweet side and I really had fun doing something with it. “Brigitte” is a mix between flexible prims and as well mesh body appliers/body layers. The basic dress goes directly on your body weather you use your system avatar or one of the popular mesh bodies. AZUL offers appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Omega. The cute bow and the amazing skirt prims are super flexible in a very natural way. I tried to catch the softness on the pictures but if you see them inworld they look even better!

azul-6

Now how to style that sweet babydoll… Certainly I could have done a bedroom looking style but I really wanted to go different, since I did so many lingerie posts already lately :p.

I remembered the “Savage” legwraps from the last round of The Fantasy Collective. I wanted to use them so badly before and never found a matching look. When I put them on they immediately made a wonderful contrast to the cuteness of the babydoll.

azul-9

So the dress and the leg wraps are really solid and already make a statement, but I still wanna use some accessories and as well shoes. They should all be somewhat filigree and so my choice fell on the “Elowen” set from Wicca’s Wardrobe. I only used the arm parts, the headpiece and the necklace. With the HUD I was able to match them to the golden parts of the leg wraps.

For the fingers I used some rings of my favourite prim rings and nail maker – Formanails. Ivi Bing offers amazing detailed jewelry for hands and nails.. I never found anything comparable somewhere else. All her accessories usually made for Maitreya, standard avatar and for the casual and elegant version of the Slink hands! The ones I used today are called “Simple Rings” and they were right the kind of rings I wanted, to not overload the whole look.

azul-4

Last but not least the amazing sweet and curled hair I found with Tukinowaguma. The “Helga” hair style I liked so much because of all the wisps and curls as well as the pulled back part with the braids, so that not everything around the head down the shoulders is covered… if that makes sense (<< silly German here)

Overall I so had funny putting together my little fairy and I only needed to find a location for the pics. I remembered a sim, which I was shown by wonderful gentleman. Lakeside, recently even got revamped and is now even more romantic that before. With many hidden places and spots it is a miracle πŸ™‚ Every time when I go there, I find new corners and new parts I never saw before. It is really worth a visit πŸ™‚

Fantasy Dreams with Wicca’s Wardrobe

Miniel 1

Today I would like to showcase one of our latest releases. The “Miniel” outfit is available at the actual round of The Fantasy Collective (TFC).

Miniel 9

For today I chose the blue/brass version of the outfit, as it looked the best in the wooden environment I chose for my pictures. At the event you will find 5 different colors for the outfit.

The body is decorated with some armor looking parts as well as with some very filigree chains. The cool arm and leg armor is part of the whole “Miniel” outfit too.

Miniel 7

When I saw the “Eva” wings from NeverWish, I totally fell in love with them. They matched so perfect in style and color to the “Miniel” outfit.

Miniel 5

The “Eva” wings are incredible detailed and wonderful textured, little wings, that fit to many different looks. With the delicate roses and the wonderful filigree metal shapes they are a must have for every fantasy wardrobe. The wings do have a HUD to recolor the wings and metals separately.

Miniel 3

The cool “Nanina” hair was made by EMO-tions. The hair is made of many little braided parts, that are non symmetrical and have an awesome high top part.

The boots are as well from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The “Inara” boots with the little golden spikes and chains totally rocked the style and the blue version of the ‘Chic Edition’, even matched the color of the “Miniel” body suit.

PurpleMoon goes Fantasy for the Instruments Anniversary

PurpleMoon 2A Midsummer Night’s Dream… that’s the name of one of the latest releases from PurpleMoon.

Poulet again designed a super amazing and dreamy outfit for the anniversary round of The Instruments.

When I unpacked it and put it on, I immediately was in love with the beautiful fairy looking outfit.

The outfit contains the sweet dress and the amazing Wings wich are color change able via a HUD to 5 different colors for the fatpack.

I decided to wear the ‘aqua’ version of the dress and as well color the wings in the same color.

PurpleMoon 1The dress is made with a corset and a very cute wrap around skirt. The corset is decorated with amazing ornaments, that underline the dreamy flair of the whole creation. To match the “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” PurpleMoon offers the “Titania Sandals” for the Slink high mesh feet.

The sandals as well have a HUD wich lets you decide between 3 different styles of the shoe – ankle, mid calf and calf high – and as well you can choose between 4 different heel/sole styles.

For the jewelry I put on one of the newer releases of Finesmith.

PurpleMoon 5The “Galactic” set is a very fantasy and space looking set. The huge aqua colored gems are captured by filigree little silver decorations… simply amazing. The whole set contains earrings, necklace, ring, tiara and a headdress (which I did not use for this post).

The look really took me away from reality and let me dream about aΒ  wonderful summer night in a fantasy kingdom πŸ˜‰

In Perfect Harmony with Machoire

Machoire 04

In Perfect Harmony

In a world so far away
At the end of a closing day
A little child was born and raised
Deep in the forest on a hidden place
Mother never saw his face

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

Machoire 02
Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

The woods protected, fulfilled his needs
Fruit by birds, honey by bees
He found shelter under the trees
He grew up in their company
They became his family

Machoire 05
Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

Machoire 07
A thousand seasons
They passed him by
So many times, have said goodbye
And when the spirits called out his name
To join forever, forever to stay
A forest spirit he became

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

Golden Dreams with Enfant Terrible

Enfant Terrible Full

I am very happy that I may showcase some news from Enfant Terrible.

With all her new releases it was a hard decision, what to blog first.

I decided to star with the new “Moonchild”set. It’s parts are all part of a gacha. You will find 3 different colors for all the items in the gacha – gold, black & white. The common prizes are 3 animated butterflies, the amazing nose chain and a matching necklace wich I changed in this post for another new release of Enfant Terrible, the unisex “Caelens Armor” chest part in gold.

The rare items for that fantastic gacha of Enfant Terrible are the wonderful crowns as well in 3 colors and for the 3 ultra rare items we have the incredible staffs in the shape of a moon.

For the basic outfit to underline the golden dream I chose the “Karolina” bodysuit in gold from Countdown.

I am sure will have fun playing that gacha!

Mermaids

Mermaid

Mermaids

She was a catch, we were a match
I was the match that would fire up her snatch
There was a catch
I was no match
I was fired from her crotch
I sit around and watch
The mermaids sun themselves out on the rocks
They are beyond our touch
I watch and watch
Wave at me
They wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea

All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the sea

I believe in God
I believe in mermaids too
I believe in 72 virgins on a chain (why not, why not)
I believe in the Rapture
For Ive seen your face
On the floor of the ocean
At the bottom of the rain

I do driver alertness course
I do husband alertness course
I do mermaid alertness course
Watch them out on the rocks
Wave at me
Wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea

All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea

For all the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea

Fantasy Gacha Carnival Dreams

Saz & Wicca 001

Dreams

Beyond, beyond the mountain line,
The grey-stone and the boulder,
Beyond the growth of dark green pine,
That crowns its western shoulder,
There lies that fairy-land of mine,
Unseen of a beholder.

Its fruits are all like rubies rare;
Its streams are clear as glasses;
There golden castles hang in air,
And purple grapes in masses,
And noble knights and ladies fair
Come riding down the passes.

Ah me! they say if I could stand
Upon those mountain ledges,
I should see on either hand
Plain fields and dusty hedges;
And yet I know my fairy-land
Lies somewhere o’er their edges.

– Cecil Frances Alexander –

Saz & Wicca 002

I am very happy to do a post again with the sweet and cute Sazzy Nirpaw. She was always someone special to me since we met and your ways never parted even of we did not talk every day. Lately we came more and more close and were talking a lot and since I started creating stuff and anyways have a brain like swiss cheese she had pity with me and offered to be my personal assistant. First I was hesitating, as I never has something like that before and the thought of someone working for me, a confused and crazy-weird person that mostly cannot even work with herself, kinda scared me and I had the feeling, that should not bother another person with my ADHD character.

But she did not give up being here and helping me. After some time I could not even think what to do without her and I finally agreed, that she now official is my PA and I do not regret it – I could not have chosen a better one πŸ˜‰ . Thank you Sazzy for being here for me and sorting my chaos.

The majority of the showcased items are coming from Enfant Terrible. One new upcoming brand that has all those extravagant goodies I love so much. For the Fantasy Gacha Carnival she did amazing accessories. So mark your calendars some when between the 1st and 28th of February to stop by and visit the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The ballerina shoes are available in February only at Enchantment and they will not be sold after.
