Dr. Stein grows funny Creatures

TUNES

Once they killed his monster when it went into a trap
Now he’s making better ones on a higher step
[Helloween]

It is not a secret, that this time of the year is my personal favorite. The weather becomes bearable, the sun is not burning down like crazy anymore, the days become shorter – I always was more a creature of the night and certainly the spooky times arrived πŸ˜‰ Now I can do weird, crazy and morbid stuff without being asked if I am alright πŸ˜‰

What inspired me a lot for this post, was the actual hunt and the latest releases from DRD as well as the amazing group gift from CURELESS [+]. I got kinda an addiction to the incredible detailed torsos from CURELESS [+ ], that they have in various releases, which I showed already in previous posts. When I saw that they even released one of those as a group gift I first could not believe it. It was one of the best group gifts I ever got! Speaking of kick ass cool group gifts – the hair I am wearing as well is a group gift coming from no.match. You can wear it with and without the hat!

There is 2 events going on at the moment that really got me excited and after completing both of them I am kinda sad that it is already over… such thingsΒ  I could do forever πŸ˜‰ . The fist one would be the Ironwood Hills event called Haunting 2018. It is the 3rd event in a row – and all 3 belong to each other – and I immensely enjoyed them all. While we hunted for little charms for a charm bracelet laying inside a book, this time we got a tablet, that guided us through the whole story and hunt. You do not need to collect something this time you just need to find the right people one after another and solve their riddles. It is a great way to explore the sim as well if you did not do that before as it drags you across the whole sim. As if that would not be already enough for amusement, you get as reward over 40 gifts from the best designers on the grid. All of them as well made special Exclusives, scary, spooky themed for the event – It is a shopping paradise for all those who love the darker side of life πŸ˜‰

Speaking of the best designers on the grid, I cannot miss DRD. Deathrow Designs, is one of my all time favorites anyways if it is clothing, accessories or structures/buildings. They have a certain way of their designing and texturing, you would discover them under a million of other designers. The skills of the whole team is incredibly amazing and incomparable. They as well are part of the Ironwood Hills event with their mega amazing Reanimator Gacha – you can gamble for it or just buy the whole set. The whole set screams Dr. Stein with the tower and it’s furniture as well as the reward gift for completing the Ironwood Hills hunt. Last year round about the same time they introduced their Shadow Box. A monthly subscription box over 6 month with a final reward gift if you bought all 6 of them. My today background is exactly that final gift with various furniture items that were in the shadow boxes. Obviously I used the dark version – for the Shadow boxes you always got one light and one dark version.

DRD has as well an event going on, the Reanimator Hunt. You just have to grab the hunt HUD at the landing point and roam around the DRD sim along a path they mentioned in the NC. While walking around, you will find little skulls and just by clicking them you will get your hunt items until you collected all and can grab your final 10th gift back at the landing point. What I loved is that the skulls are not permanent. As soon as you lick them they vanish and spawn somewhere else randomly. That makes sure everyone has the same hunting experience πŸ™‚

As a little plus and for all that love to collect things they have a neat addition to the hunt The Steins – 11 unique, in character dressed avatars of their staff – appear randomly on the sim and you have to ask them a specific question (you find that one in the DRD group notices). If you asked the right question each of them will hand you a unique, personalized journal – I still miss 3 of them but I will keep hunting them down πŸ˜‰

Don’t miss either Ironwood Hills or the Reanimator Hunt @ DRD, before October is over – There is not many chances for free hunts and games in such an amazing quality!

Adorable news by PurpleMoon!

Last days I had a very elegant parcel brought by the postman… the look was very familiar and I was shivering because of excitement and happyness… the parcel was from Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon. I could not wait and run back into my livingroom and openend the big box… took the outfit and was holding it in front of my body looking into the mirror… AMAZING!!!

I could not wait anymore and put it on, again looking at myself in the mirror. “Marilyn” in the color sapphire, such a breathtaking awesome gown. I saw a little letter in that box and grabbed it still exploring the amazing fabrics of that new blue gown with my fingertips.

“Hello ladies!
We’ve got a new lovely gown today. I was asked to design two gowns for the GLANCE Fashion Awards 2011 Ceremony. It was an honor to design these gowns for two beautiful ladies, Patty Cortes and HoneyBear Lilliehook.
They said “red carpet” and “ruffles” and this gown came up, I named it “Marilyn” as a tribute to the sexy woman and fashion icon, Marilyn Monroe.
Patty Cortes decide to wear this gown in red and I added another 5 colors. I hope you like and enjoy this gown. There is also a demo version of the skirt available to try before buying it. Being a sculpted skirt I thought it would be handy to get to see how it fits.
The second gown I made for this ceremony will come soon!”

I read Poulet’s words and smiled… yes this gown really was made for a red carpet! The shoulderfree gown gives enough room for an amazing necklace and I chose to try the “Inspiration Celestial” set from Finesmith Designs. This set perfectly matched with this elegnat gown. With the silver of the jewerly I could repeat lightly the amazing sparklinig textures, that were added to the gown, for example on the right hips. The skirt is shorter and lightly open in the front so that your sexy long legs are showcased in a wonderful elegant way. For the backpart you have a wonderful train looking part that goes down till it nearly reaches the floor. The folds and ruffles are beautiful made and give the whole gown a very realsitic and dynamic touch. To see all the other great colors you can purchase that gown… you better make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore πŸ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Future Fashion…

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Lately I had a strange mood and was totally been drowned into futuristic and cyberpunk looks… For a strange reason it catched me more and more and I decided to let you be part of my journey into that πŸ˜‰

I have to thank Harsch Sharktooth and Redclaw Inshan to follow me on my trip and pose with me for a few pics πŸ˜‰

(Models: Redclaw Inshan, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

First look ..lemme call it “Futuristic Red”… has a big part of cyberpunk also, but lets take a closer look at the 2 outfits πŸ™‚

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The basic of my first outfit was is the “X – Suit” from Graves Leather. It shows off a lot of skin and was a nice possibility to also wear some big tattoos πŸ˜‰ For the boots I chose the “Cyberboots” from R:A:D. They are fully color changeable for all the parts that are shown here in red. Also you can decide from different signs that decorate the boot tips. The bracelets and the mask are made by Nibiru Productions and are color changeable too. Te spine plugs are made by Toxic Orange and are color changeable with menu driven script as well. The hair I found at the Stringer Mausoleum and is called “Rooster Hawk”

(Model: Redclaw Inshan, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The male outfit is showcased by Redclaw Inshan, designer of R:A:D and he chose the same mask called “Optical Argument” as I did… actually it was the other way round…he had it first but oh well… πŸ˜‰ The pants are the great “Male Distressed Leather Pants” by with a wonderful prim belt that has an amazing realistic look. The boots are made by Bobbysocks and are called “Anarchy”. The cool black “Devious Trench” is made by by Spider Productionscoat and you can wear it with or without the spikes that you can see on the shoulderparts.

(Model: Redclaw Inshan, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

For the perfect cyberpunk look the “Cyber Heart” made by Mennisco Volitan for sure should not be missed. The spine implants are the same as I was wearing and yes this time I had them first… I guess πŸ˜‰ The mechanical “Cyber Droids Hand” comes from [:: Black Heart ::].

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

For the second look Harsch Sharktooth helped me for the pictures and chose a wonderful futuristic looking outfit…

(Models: Harsch Sharktooth, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The main color oft this 2 looks definitely is the silver & teal mix & match. Both of us were using cyberskins from LionSkins made by Lion Jonesford.

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Again the suit is the “X – Suit” from Graves Leather made by Jackie Graves. This time i chose the “Tech” spine implant from Toxic Orange and colored it in teal to match the great Griddie hair. Th guns are from Breach and the “Climatix” mask is done by AVZ. For he mask you can choose if you wanna show breath particles and also the color of a few parts. The bracelets are the same as I used for my first outfit but this time also colored in teal. The boots are the fantastic “Dragon Boots” made by R:A:D. Those boots you can change in 5 basic preset colors and chains and spikes you can change to every color you can thing of as the HUD has an amazing color field to play with πŸ˜‰

(Model & Photographer: Harsch Sharktooth)

Harsch is wearing the Elixier “Latex Hipsters” pants in camo black combined with the Elixier “Latex Sheer Raincoat-Clear”. For the neck collar part he took a part from the Miamai “Lulu” outfit. “Lulu” is part of the Black Label Collection of Miamai. Also from Miamai is the attachment he chose for the right arm. The armwarmer is part of the “Kingdom M Grey shirt”. For the boots he chose the “Homme_EngineerBoots” from COCO in black. The hair he found at the Stinger Mausoleum. Last but not least the gloves… they are from Xplosion and named “Skull Gloves”. Did you ever see such a cute android before πŸ˜‰

(Models: Redclaw Inshan, Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Futuristic GREEN! πŸ˜‰ It was just too tempting to do a full green in green on green pic*giggles*…

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

This time I combined the “Tribal Latex Suit” from Creepy Latex with the “JG2 Body” in the short version again from Graves Leather. The boots are again the “Cyber Boots” from R:A:D. The mask for this outfit comes from AVZ and the Visor is part of the Graves “G121 Black & White- Zero” outfit from Graves Leather. The color changing spine tubes are made by Toxic Orange. The “Cyber Hawk” hair style in a poison green, I found at DV8 πŸ™‚ and for the earrings I chose of my favourite ones made by Ticky Tacky.

(Model: Redclaw Inshan, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Redclaw Inshan chose for the main part one of the outfits he made by himself πŸ˜‰ Pants, shirt, boots, wristbands, jacket and beltΒ  are part of the “Cyber Biohazard” outfit of R:A:D and you can find it in his Mainstore πŸ™‚ The mask is the same I was wearing πŸ˜‰ and for the shades he chose one of his favourites, the “Halo” made by Eryn Republic, designer of ERD πŸ™‚ I never saw such amazing detailed glasses before and I have to admit I bought me some glasses from there as well πŸ˜‰

(Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

My glasses from Eryn Republic Designs are called “Streemlyne” and I was really impressed about the service and help I found with the fitting of my glasses. The outfit I am wearing on this picture is a very old one I found during cleaning my inventory and it reminded me lightly of kinds ‘Matrix’ or ‘Trinity’ outfit πŸ˜‰ It is from Gothika and I am not sure if it still available or already gone, maybe you have to take a look by yourself if you are interested in πŸ˜‰

I hope you enjoyed my futuristic cyber trip and maybe I could show you my version of future fashion πŸ˜‰ A special thanks goes to Harsch Sharktooth & Redclaw Inshan, who had the patience and invested the time to style and pose for me πŸ˜‰

stay styled,

Wicca

New!!! Maven Strasse – The PrΓͺt-Γ -Porter line by Elaera Maven!!!

(Outfits: Sweater: Maven Strasse – “Bulwark” sweater, Leggings: Maven Haus, Models: Wicca Merlin & Elaera Maven, Photographer: Adien Arun, Infamous Robot Studios)

Elaera Maven, genius designer of Maven Haus created a side label for his PrΓͺt-Γ -Porter clothing – Maven Strasse!!!

Maven Strasse will be the name for the more ‘casual’ clothing of Elaera Maven. But it would not be Elaera if this just would be another usually casual wear… way not. He creates very fashionable and chic designs for the modern fashionistas everyday life. For example the great “Bulwark” sweater. I was very happy as he IMed me asking me, if I would pose for this amazing sweater! The “Bulwark” is a great start in a new casual era where you do not have to miss a very modern and fresh style that still is in a high fashion way.

The basic of this great top is a t-shirt layer that is combined with 4 amazing sculpted prims. The huge neck collar, 2 wrist cuffs and the amazing bottom that falls down your upper body like a neat bell, tight at the beginning and very wide and comfy at the bottom. With a very good eye for the detail the wool textures where fitted on the prims. Every part is connected perfect without a texture break to each other! The huge collar is made of 2 parts linked together, an inner one a bit higher and an outer one.

PurpleMoon – News and Showreview ;)

Today I have a little combination of a new release and some great outfits that I was allowed to showcase for the amazing PurpleMoon/Finesmith fashion show at BLVD. For first lets take a look on the new “Tango” outfit.

This outfit you can wear in 2 different versions. The first possibility is a sweet wide top that has an amazing huge neck collar.

The pants can be worn with or without the leg sleeves. The pants are made ofΒ  a dark grey / black texture that let imagine a light rough-looking fabric and the white line adds a wonderful elegant touch. The neat hat also is part of the outfit!

For the second version you can wear we also see that there is nother color available for the “Tango” outfit πŸ˜‰ Here I just took off the wide top prim and the leg sleeves. The hat I changed to one of the new fantastic hair attachments, named “Era” that come with the perfect matching hairbases! So stay tuned for the new releases that will happen πŸ˜‰

Last weekend the BLVD Agency had an amazing show showing off amazing creationd from PurpleMoon and Finesmith. It was an awesome combination of dreamy outfits and perfectly matching elegant and stylish looking jewelry.

My first outfit was a stunning dark blue gown named “Sue”. This great evening gown is the perfect outfit for an elegant night out. The amazing skirt falls down to the ground and moves behind you with every step. The aerial ruffles that decorate the chest make beautiful filigree looking touch. The neat little blue flowers are amazingly detailed and light the dark blue perfect. Another great highlight we have with the head part. A huge headpart that repeats the roses of the dress and has a little train in the back. Perfect for every fashionista who likes to turn heads!

As it was made for, the “Tension” set from Finesmith looks as a perfect addition to this stunning gown. The half round earrings that become smaller to the end like a half-moon decorate your ears. The same theme you have for the bracelet where 2 of that ‘half moons’ surround your wrist. FOr the perfect finish I added the “Metallic Silver” nails from PurpleMoon.

Another great outfit I was wearing for the show was the “Zasha” dress in bronze. A very tight dress that accents a well-shaped fashionistas body πŸ˜‰ The horizontal stripes of the main texture adds a modern look to the whole dress. The top is shoulder free and makes great room for a huge edgy necklace like the “Kitsch Couture” necklace from Finesmith. The black gloves and the mermaid looking skirt prim in black make a nice frame where the texture of the dress is fantastic highlighted.

The incredible “Kitsch Couture” necklace and bracelet, made by Finesmith are the perfect addition if it comes to the jewelry part for this dress. The 3 different gold colors go perfect with the bronze and black texture of the dress that has neat little ornaments if you take a closer look. Together with the “Sun” face tattoo, made by White Widow and the “Invicta” hairstyle from Miamai the whole outfit was perfect for the runway πŸ™‚

But if you make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore you can see way more of Poulet Koenkamp’s creation and you will really have a hard time to think wich one you get first :p
