Avantasia for THEMA Magazine

THEMA Magazine - Avantasia 002


(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.  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.

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 watched  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 Certainly some things are outdated some when, like the super old skins or hair, wich automatically let you look like 2007 :p , but for some clothing pieces and accessories that might not be the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 😉 . 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 😉 .

 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 😉

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 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Our Second Original Mesh

Wicca's Wardrobe - CD Teaser Mood

Today I am very happy and proud as well…. First of all my RL goes better and better what really gets me more and more in a positive mood and second… I am able to show you the second original mesh item of Wicca’s Wardrobe.

Lately we started to learn Blender with help of some friends and after a lot of practice and try and error I am very, very proud to say we made our second orignal mesh the “Cybernetic Eye”

Wicca's Wardrobe - CD Teaser Mood 3

I have a mega favour on steam punk and cyber stuffs and so the idea of that “Cybernetic Eye” was not too far off my direction. The one who made it possible for Wicca’s Wardrobe is my RL & SL partner Redclaw Inshan. Cause he is the one who kinda defeated Blender :p

So he has to put up with strange and weird ideas of mine and helps me to make them become real… ok.. virtual real 😉 Sometimes he is loosing his mind and temper and sometimes he even adds more crazy ness to my ideas, or he comes with amazing ideas of himself.

I am really looking forward to what the future will bring with the possibility to now make things out of our imagination.

Wicca's Wardrobe - CD Teaser Mood 1

The rest of the whole look as well is made by Wicca’s Wardrobe. The whole ensemble at the moment is available at the Couturier’s Docks. This special aluminium black combination is limited to 50 pieces only for the jacket, the pants, the heels and the cybernetic eye in that particular colors.

From the “Cayla” jacket and the “Renraku” pants there are still a few left at Couturier’s Docks but the special color combination of the “Lorraine” heels already sold out. That’s why I made one more pair of heels wich go with this futuristic look – the “Locked Heels” in aluminium.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Locked Heels (Aluminium) Vendor

Those are available at the Wicca’s Wardrobe Mainstore and as well at the satellite store on SaliMar if you wanna grab them after you did your shopping at the Couturier’s Docks wich are located right around the corner of my satellite store 😉

There are only a few days left before the Couturier’s Docks close for the next round maybe you get lucky and get one of the last pieces of that cool look for yourself 😉

News from [sys] – Futuristic Mood


If you are in a spacey, cyber or future mood what else than sys and Zibska you can use to think about a styling 😉

I totally fell in love with one of the latest releases of sys called “Exes”. The ensamble contains a wonderful sexy corset and a short skirt. The combination of the black base and the light blue applications caught my attention as i like this color combination a lot.


For those who know me for a while, you know that I never can have something stand alone and that I love to mix and match different designers and sometimes even different styles to create a new look. The “Exes” outfit already was a great start, but I wanted to add some more and so I remebered the “Sybella Noir” dress from Zibska, that I got at the SAVIAD fasion fair. The collar and the cuffs just were perfect to brake the more minaimal looking corset and skirt and added something different and strange to it with the pretty flowers in that very stong and dark black. Now I needed some hair that again would not be too elegant, but as well looks nottoo boring as well. I have to admit, I was wering that hair a lot lately and it became kinda a all time favourite of mine. The “Kat” hairstyle from EMO-tions would be soemthing I would LOVE to try RL on stage with the band as well 😉 .

Now for a female’s worst nightmare… shoes…

Do you know that feeling if you open your closed RL or your inventory SL, even if you have about 150 or more pair of shoes you still think that you have no shoes?

So it was with this styling too. I was trying several of my shoes and some was like … ‘ok’, but nothing really jumped into my eyes. All of a sudden I remebered, that I bought some shoes for slink feet lately on Marketplace, wich I not yet did unpack or sort into my shoe folder.

Welcome to my second nighmare… how those shoes were called and where in my overfilled object folder they are…

“Gladiator Couture Princess Boots”!!!

Yes! Something with Gladiator it was and thank god the inventory search was nice enough to work! Those mesh boots are made for the high version of the Slink feet and it comes in 2 different versions. One materials version for SL and Firestorm users, wich shows a subtile reflection on the shoes if you are able to turn your graphics up to advanced lightning and as well another version for all of those who either use another viewer or cannot pull up the graphics so high. For this post I used the no materials version, as the reflection of the boots nearly let them shine blue and I wanted the dark black to my styling.

Last but not least I looked though my makeup folder. I did not want too much but as well the whole look kinda requested something. So I decided to go with the “Zion” makeup from Nuuna and one of my Wicca lipsticks from Silken Moon wich is tinatable so I could make my own color to match the look.

Final Fantasies with ~*S.E.*~ , Yasum & GizzA

FFF Logo

The FF7 Livestream RP Community is opening their doors with a bang. They host a 2 week shopping extravaganza from February 7th to February 21st. All items showcased there are some kind of Final Fantasy inspired as well as steampunk, futuristic and cyber punk orientated.

FFF 001

For my today’s look I chose the “Oculus Enhancements” by Souzou Eien . Thos amazing eye decorations really inspired me to do a styling that goes in a futuristic and steampunk direction.

FFF 004

The “Oculus Enhancements” are very versatile and you can customize nearly each part of it with a menu by touch. You can change the color of every part to make sure it will match your extravagant styling.

To underline the attitude of the “Oculus Enhancements”, I chose to wear some hair, I got longer ago from a gacha. The “Codie” hair by Discord Designs just looked amazing with the “Oculus Enhancements”.

FFF 002

For the jacket I took the “Vintage Leather Jacket” from GizzA. With the open front and the used leather look it was the best addition I could think of for this kinda special look.

Since it was open and I did not wanna put a shirt under it, I added some dirt and mud as well as some scratches to get this kinda apocalyptic look and mood, as if I just survived a fight;) .

The cool Steampunk Leggings” are made by Yasum. They originally were made for a steam punk event, but they just were perfect for my look. The come with a huge HUD wich lets you change colors and fabrics of the pants, the heels as well as from the added belt buckle. What really caught my attention was that the shoes are right connected to them and the heel was made with such love to the detail. All those cool little steam punk gears put together really caught my heart 😉 .

To see more of the amazing items made for the FF7 Livestream RP Community you just have to visit their amazing looking sim and look for yourself, if you do not wanna wait on more posts that certainly will come to showcase more of all the amazing items made for the FF7 Livestream RP Community grand opening.

In the year 2050 – News from Creepy’s Fetishwear

Creepys 001

Sometimes you think what fashion or clothing in the future might be… with Creepy’s ideas and creations you might get an idea of what future fashion will be 😉

The new “Cyber Punk Catsuit” in pink i guess you will be prepared to be a future fashionista. For me the idea of future fashion goes 2 different ways. One that will be a colorful and shining huge wardrobe and the other will be a very tight and shape based tight wardrobe, what allows you to be fast and very sexy 😉 .

Creepys 002

The “Cyber Punk Catsuit” from Creepy’s is a mixture of layers and mesh prims. The basic pink catsuit accents the well-shaped body in an awesome way. The high over knee boots are mesh made and so you do not have any longer the weird angles on your knees. The super tight corset and the amazing jacket with the half face mask are as well mesh parts and perfectly lay on you body. The combination of the latex texture of the catsuit and the more structured one of the jacket, boots and corset are a perfect mix for me.

The “Cyber Punk Catsuit” is available in different colors. So make your way to the Creepy’s Fetishwear Mainstore and get your favourite 😉 .

The makeup I choose comes from Lovely Mi. The “Ashraya Pink” eye makeup, with the pink down part and the white upper part was the perfect match for my todays look. Together with the “Diavolo” hairstyle from Vanity Hair, my vision of a future fashion look was complete. The wings are something, I got way in the past for a lingerie show but colored in pink they just gave the extra touch of being crazy for me 😉 .

Detention at MVW Academy

Last days I walked through the MVW Academy corridors and suddenly I heard a mega off one of the class rooms. As I went closer I peeked through the little window in the door and saw half of a class running around, shouting. Some where pulling each others hairs and some were throwing stuff against each other… I opened the door with a light smile as this reminded me of my own high school years. If there was no teacher the students freak out and start doing crap. And my memories were completed as I entered the room. All of a sudden it went quiet and all eyes were focusing me, in an asking way, what I would do here… As I started explaining my memories and that it lightly made me sad that they all went so quiet, I saw out of my eye corner in my back one girl who tried to place some glue on the teachers chair and as they wanted to prove me wrong a little paper ball hit my forehead. The suddnely I saw them both – Pow and Temptress –  pulling each others hair… I grabbed the 2 girls by the arms and pulled them closer looking at them… Finally I came to an idea… if they chose to put me in the teachers role so badly (yes I still do not feel like an adult most of the time :p), I decided I could get some detention out as well and told them, that I think they would have too much free time and that I can change that for a while…

I told them that I wanna have 2 looks created in the next 15 min. The first look should be kinda city chic style, like they would go out for shopping in London, Rome or Mailand. The second look should be a crazy future fashion… nothing that quite did happen, more what could be fashion in the future… and on the 2 pictures you can see the results :p. The did a pretty good job on the tasks and I wanted to share the funny story along with the nice results as well 🙂

So MVW Academy students… be careful how you show you have too much free time in the future *grins evil*

I really had fun and a special thank you to Pow Curameyer and Temptress Fallen for playing along the victims so cool, to make this funny story happen 🙂

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 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 11/29/2011 – Mother of Darkness

Yesterday, again I made my way to the DAB Studios, owned by Daron Brandeis. He was IMing me, if I would have time for a shooting. A designer booked a commercial picture and he wanted me to style and model it. As I arrived, the designer was there and we had a short talk about what she wanted to have, the after all was cleared she left.

We did a few test shots to show her later and as we finished I was fooling around with a few looks and styles I created before as, I heard Daron freaking out about my actual outfit. Again it was clear that our crazy minds are not that far from each other and he started building a stand up little set. I put on the funny lightballs again and got very excited about, what he has in mind… I suddenly saw electric lights between my hands and instantly put on my glowy blue eyes… one word gave the other and I heard the camera going again and again… and what came out… was so incredible I have no words for…

Then suddenly I got a notecard from Pindar, who was sitting and watching the photography session… I had no clue that he writes and was hell touched by what just came up his mind watching the shooting. I asked him if I may use his little “poem” for the blog as it says more than 1000 words I could do…

Mother of Darkness by Pindar Kanya

I walk the spaces
between the worlds
and stalk the ebon reaches beyond Time
universes come into being
between the possibilities of my Will
to Be…or not to Be…there is no question
for I decide
what will and will not Be
I am the Smiter of Gods
the Eater of Worlds
and the Mother of Darkness
I call and the stars answer
I smile
and Darkness covers a thousand worlds
I wait for all beings
in the places where all fear to look
deep within
that raw, primal, ancient space
I stand
and one day…your final day
long after Death takes you…
you will see my face
