Envy and Jealousy are incurable diseases…

Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them.

[Johannes Brahms]

It never stops to make me sad to see how some people try to make others life miserable for no reason. Not that I would not know it does exist but that does not mean I do understand it. The world is so huge and there is place for each and everyone. Some humans seem to believe, they do have to try to make others look bad and it does not want to get into my brain why. Do they feel better as others? Does it give them a “I am the better one” feeling? Does it give them any kind of satisfaction? Do they get up in the morning and the first thought is who they could trash today? If it would not be such a bad thing I would say I feel pity for those who cannot just enjoy their life by using all energy to make something out of themselves. But since it always involves that others get hurt by that, I can’t feel pity at all. I always try to figure out what kind of people that are. It cannot be successful ones as those would not need to put a bad light on others. They cannot be very self esteemed, as they probably suck all their power from others pain and sadness. They cannot be very creative as then they would use their energy to do something. They always try to justify their doing with the try to convince someone that they do it for law and order, while they are just doing it to feed their sick addiction of enjoying the sadness and pain they cause for others. There is even no way you could tell such people that they are wrong as they are so deeply caught in their addiction – like drug addicts, they never would admit they are addicted until they have serious physical problems.
Since we cannot do anything against it, the big question is how we deal with it… I guess there is no general way how to deal with it and everyone has to decide personally about how to handle it. First of all you have to find a way to not let to close to you. That is probably the hardest part as we are all humans and if we get attacked, it hurts. But that is exactly what those folks want and what we should not give them. It is only human nature that you instantly think you have to justify yourself, but you do not – especially if you did nothing wrong! It seriously is senseless to respond to such tries, as you never will get down a point against those trolls – they simply cannot see it (remember… addicts!) They will twist every word you say into something that works for them and against you. Anyways how you react or what you will do – it is just pointless.
The best is just to ignore and forget about them… in the end you must have done something right or spectacular, otherwise those people would not have tried to come after you.
After venting, I would love now to get a closer view on my todays look πŸ˜‰

Today I do not have one special item to focus on, it again was one of those lucky days where different things all of a sudden resulted in a whole.

[Gos] released an amazing combination of leather pants and funky ankle boots for the current round of UBER & FaMESHed. The “Liz” ankle boots (UBER) and leather pants (FaMESHed)!

Again Gospel Voom amazed me with his design and texture skills on both creations. The leather pants have a perfect shine if you use the materials version and the booties fit perfect with the leather pants. It is always hard to find matching shoes for long pants without getting any mesh clipping problems. I chose black for both “Liz” creations, because they reflected the light so amazingly.

Shoes often do not ge the spotlight they deserve and that is why I included a close up with different colors, just in case the dark green swallows too much of the shoes πŸ˜‰ The shoes again come in all popular body sizes and with the 3 amazing HUD options that lately are standard for [Gos]. The Boutique, the Blueberry and the Metallic HUD. AS well you have the choice for a materials enabled version and one without.

First I thought, To wear some gloves but then I found the amazing “Rallen” set that has makeup, lipstick and that amazing arms applier. That worked so much better than any gloves I found πŸ˜‰

The cool and funky necklace was made by Zib Scaggs as well. I really do love her crazy and funky designs as they always ad a extravagant touch to every style.

The amazing veil, was made by a very dear friend of mine. She does create for quite some time now and it is amazing to see what fierce ideas she comes up with. Anyways if makeup, headpieces or accessories, she has that little ‘something’ that make her creations very special. The “Shell Veil” comes with a huge HUD for the veil itself and the ruffled flowers on the top of the head. You get all kind of color and texture options with that πŸ™‚

I hope after my little venting at the top, I could do satisfaction to all those creations πŸ˜‰

Thanks a lot for reading and maybe you have your own experiences and ways, how you deal with trolls and all those who try to make others look bad and want to share that in the comments πŸ˜‰ Have a wonderful time and enjoy the happy side of life!

What got my attention is a wonderful, sweet animation, that lets you swap the glasses from the usual ‘on the nose’ up to your forehead.

Abandoned Asylum @ Night

Asylum 4

Sometimes you get confused, you doubt your own guts and feelings just because you think you know better…

Exactly that feeling I had, when I was trying out different things to get my mind off some things that really afflicted me the last few days.

I was trying out some new releases of [sys], GizzA and Gabriel. On the first view, it looked very strange to put those things together that looked all so different.

The more I played with it, the more it became a certain look I really liked πŸ˜‰

Asylum 1

I started with the “Tristeline Helmet” from [sys]. The helmet is an abstract looking, super cool head with horns and petal looking parts, that comes with a HUD, which lets you change the metal to 4 different types. The helmet was released for the We <3 RP event. The awesome “Glam Jacket” as well was made by [sys]. The open jacket is decorated with filigree chains over the chest and comes in fitted mesh for all the popular mesh bodies as well as in the standard sizes. The skirt is one of the latest releases from GizzA. The “Chloe Asymmetric Skirt” is a great short skirt with amazing details. you can see the seams, and the loose belt decorates the waist knotted into a ribbon shape.

Asylum 2

For the shoes I did not want high heels or something too elegant. It should be something casual with a rough touch. The perfect match made the new “Nicole Boots”. They can be word with or without socks, both versions are available. With the flat sole and the amazing trendy shape they just were right for today’s look.

The awesome earrings are one of the newest releases from Elysium. The “Oriental Delight Earrings” made the perfect contrast for the look. With the graceful silver metals andΒ  the beautiful back gem, they compliment perfectly the filigree chains of the jacket and as well give an elegant, gothic looking touch.

To give back some more weird and as well Asylum insane looking element I put on the “Tattoo Gift Bruises” by Coca & Wolf and the ripped stockings from insanya.

Asylum 5

All the scary, cool and realistic furniture for the scenery, were made by 22769. It is part of a full set called the Abandoned Asylum. The set contains 15 items. For this post i just used the “Asylum Bed”, the “Drawercase”, the”Fire Extinguisher”, the “Portable Oxygen Tank”, the “Screen” and the “Crutches”

Sometimes out of weird moods, cool looks and an idea is born. So not always a bad or weird mood only is a bad thing if you look back on it with some distance πŸ˜‰

LOTD 08/11/2015 – Back to the 80s?

Gabriel 001aI can not deny it… I am a child of the 80 somehow.

Born in 1977 I am basically too young to have experienced the 80s fashion myself a lot, but it was the time when I grew up and I still love the style of that time.

The 80s to me kinda show a fashion rebellion and as well I think that the 80s fashion made the way for what we call fashion nowadays.

Gabriel 002aWhen I put on the Emma Dress from Gabriel, I immediately fell in love and back to the 80s*giggles. Even if that dress matches a modern styling as well with the red and black and the shape of the dress I so saw Cyndi Lauper or Whitney Houston wearing it :p

The short dress with a kind of wrapped look, where the red overlays the black fabric, the neat belt, it just screamed 80s at me πŸ˜‰

The back of the “Emma” dress holds a very sexy secret as well πŸ˜‰ You have a small gap between top and skirt that gives a very naughty view on your lower back*rawr*

Gabriel 004aI added the “Khalessi” bracelets from [sys] and some heavy boots from [GOS], tp even more go towards the 80s look.

The amazing hair, which is connected to the hat comes from Ayashi and just was the perfect addition for that look. Certainly I needed a cool tattoo too and what can be better than one of my beloved White Widow tattoos!

Julie did it again and made a wonderful and as well sexy looking tattoo, that goes over the whole body and even down the hands, plus it even has a wonderful painted garter looking ornament at the left leg. The “Music Box” tattoo is available in theΒ  3 different colors and I chose the ‘Dark’ version for this post.

The fabulous nail polish was made by Giela Delpaso for Nailed It!

Gabriel @ Shiny Shabby

Gabriel 2

Today I am very happy to showcase one of the latest releases fo Gabriel for the Shiny Shabby event.

The sweet “Maria Denim Dress” made by Sora Tatham for Gabriel. The dress is a beautiful and casual looking dress with a lot of details. It kinda look like the dress would be two layers. The denim top layer with the open button at the top and two open buttons at the bottom, wich add a light sexy touch to the amazing dress. The white layer underneath has an awesome padded fabric and makes this dress to something very trendy and certainly an eye catcher. For the Shiny Shabby event the denim top layer has some sweet flower printed on it, while you can find a star print version at the Gabriel main store as well.

Gabriel 1

As well part of the dress is the awesome “Maria Necklace” wich matches the dress perfectly to a casual and leger look. To complete the look, I added the “Cassidy Heels” from Cashmere, wich sadly is not longer around. The amazing hand bag comes from 22769 and was one of their past gachas.

The super cool “Lou Glam Glasses” are made by Miamai and add the perfect coolness factor to the whole look. The perfect hair for today’s style I found at EMO-tions. The “Carrie” hair style. This hair has a wonderful back as well. A loosely updo with some nice chop sticks as accessories.

Dream of Summer with Petit Chat

PC & EMOtions full

Today I am very happy that I am allowed to showcase again one of Trinity Yazimoto’s little art pieces.

The “Dream of Summer” dress in pastel, is one of the summer releases of Petit Chat. The amazing red tones underline the darker end f the summer and its red tones symbolise for me, the beginning change of the season.

For the few last warm days of the summer this short mesh dress with the amazing and elegant looking neck collar are the perfect choice to enjoy the few last warm sun beams outside.

The wild and lightly messy hair gives the whole look a very smart and fresh look. The “Alex” hair from EMO-tions with the wild wisps in the front and the high ponytail in the back was perfect for the high neck collar of the “Dream of Summer” mesh dress.

I did not wanna wear too much jewelry as I am not a friend of over accessorizing anyways πŸ˜‰ So I decided to just wear the “Cecilie” set from EMO-tions. This amazing and filigree set is just perfect for an everyday casual look. he set has a HUD, wich changes the gem and metal colors. For todays post I decided to go with copper metal and a red gem to match the “Dream of Summer” dress.

Ascension

Mantis Oh 002

Explore the seven levels of the Ascension tower and lose yourself in a mysterious world where musical notes appear from under your feet, robotic bumblebees hover close by and particles shimmer in the alien atmosphere.

Create your own music alone or with friends by jumping on the glowing sound pads and solve riddles under the illuminated eyes of the mantis sphinx!

Sound is important to the Ascension experience, so make sure your local sounds are on and walk through the whole sim to discover mystical places and secret trails.

Created by Mantis Oh (Cari Lekebusch in RL) you can also look forward to a schedule of Techno music events and DJ sets from RL record label H-Productions.

It’s time to ascend…

Mantis Oh 001

With this words I made my way to the Ascension sim, that was buited on LEA 16 by Mantis Oh. Mantis Oh is well known for futuristic environments and objects in SL. “Ascension is a fun and immersive experience that can only be found in virtual worlds. It is a build based on the intuition and actions of each individual visitor and encourages collective consciousness and social interaction through a range of sound displays, visuals and futuristic objects.”, the official press release says and I have to say, I was not dissapointed after I explored the sim, looked tried all of the great installations and saw all this amazing buildings. The Ascension sim is really worth a trip. Do not wait too long as it will be only available till the end of May.

That was not all as Persia told me, that he not only builted that amazing sims and arranged all that great DJ events, Mantis Oh as well creates prefab homes and … what really caught my attention, he creates wonderful futuristic acessories. The “MartialArts Armguards”, the “Martial Arts Waistguard”and the “Third Eye Tiara” headpiece are made by Mantis Oh, owner and creator of Hybrid Productions. All of his pieces are incredible detailed and you can only imagine how long Mantis sit and worked on them. The belt with the ornaments and the to little bags where you can put bottles or what ever in are as well great for a fantastic roleplay πŸ˜‰ But for me it is a wonderful fashion accessory, as O really love to experiment with futuristic ideas ;).Β  The “Third Eye Tiara” reminded me of the ‘Visor’ ofΒ Lieutenant Commander Georgdi Laforge of the Star Trek – The next generation movies and so it was clear I had to do a post about something futuristic πŸ˜‰ The armparts and the belt as well have little glowing effects, that are not static. There is many more awesome creations of Mantis Oh at the Hybrid Productions Mainstore and I am sure this is not my last post about them πŸ˜‰

Mantis Oh 003

I thought for a longertime about a cool styling for the “Outland” from [sys], that is sold at the 100 Block event. The cool blue & black pants outfit perfectly goes together with the acessories from Hybrid Productions. The top has a very sexy touch at it looks like it would be sheet while it is totally opaque. The pants are mesh made and very modern with the loose style. The “Vouge” shoes are as well from [sys] and made the perfect addition to the whole look.

So I only had to find the right jewelry and hair. For the jewelry I remembered that Sora Tatham, one of the genius designers of Gabriel, gave me a wonderful mesh set. She said the “Curb Chain” set would be her first try for mesh jewelry and I was totally amazed as I put it on. The jewelry comes with a HUD that lets you chnage the texture of the jewelry to 3 different colors. The hair comes from EMO-tions. I loved the way how the mohawk looks lightly ‘messy’ at the ends and the wonderful made braids that are covering the head. A nice mixture of different hairstyles together on one πŸ˜‰

So… it’s time to ascend… πŸ˜‰
