Wicca’s Wardrobe @ The Guardians – October 2017

This round of The Guardians we have our first ever mesh lingerie! And of course it is 100% original! Evelyn is made up of 5 rares and 25 commons… the RARE items are: the bra, panty, garter belt, corset, and stockings, that comes with a texture changing HUD for all the variety you could want. The commons are single colored bras, panties, garter belts, corsets and stockings that come with a small HUD to change the texture of the metals.

And only for the event we have the Gift of the Guardians, our Evelyn Heels with color changing HUD.

A perfect compliment to the entire set.

GOTG = Gift of the Guardians (On top of each 15th pull, only available during the event itself)

Evelyn is designed to fit only Maitreya’s Lara.

Phoenix – A Modern, Steampunk Interpretation

phoenix-1

Sometimes the mind takes off and you just go with the flow…

That happened again after I got the amazing “Lavi” makeup from Slackgirl. I wanted to do something special as the makeup itself looked very different to me.

First I tried something simple, as I wanted the makeup to pop out, but what ever I tried, it never did satisfaction to the makeup to my feeling.

That usually is the point when I put things to the side and wait until the creative muse kisses me with the right idea. But for what ever reason I could not do it this time without again and again thinking about it.

With the amazing shine of the makeup, I came across the idea to use the wonderful “Asgard Wings” from E.V.E Studio, that come with the matching head wing parts. So I slowly got a basic idea for what would like to go for. Wearing the cool head wing parts I had to find some hair, that go well with them without hiding too much or looking too funky. The ” Tommy” hair is the perfect choice to match my vision, which grows more and more in my mind πŸ˜‰

With the beautiful detailed top from the “Scarlett” lingerie – made by Salt & Pepper – I had the arms free for the awesome “Elowen” arm pieces from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The shorts with the cool garter straps come from Asteria and are named “Mady”.

With the cool “Lavi” makeup and the “Asgard” accessories the vision of an steampunk Phoenix was born in my head… I can’t tell you why but it just got tsuck in my mind :p

For the set, which I built at my studio I used the incredible “Propelling Gears” together with the “Rosina’s Undergeound” and the “Eye of the Storm” made the perfect ambience for what I was looking for πŸ™‚

Now.. simple runway poses would not do justice to the Phoenix idea. I was trying quite a few but nothing really would work with my idea and finally Gryphon Vendetta, creator of Poseidon poses saved my life. I ran into Poseidon via Gryphons amazing flickr stream and his incredible pictures. I totally love them and drooled more than once over his pictures πŸ˜‰

He does very dramatic and expressive poses which are perfect for exciting pictures and moods. I rarely saw such motion looking poses, which still look human and not distorted for the limbs. It looks like that he has poses for every occasion you can think about whether it is weapons, running scenes or flying moments. Sometimes he even has props coming with them like the one I used for the dark bloody nurse post not too long ago (http://wiccamerlin.de/something-evils-lurkinin-the-dark/).

I really got kinda an addiction for Poseidon poses since I tried them first and with all those possibilities he offers, I guess that will not be the last post I used them :p (I spied a Harley Quinn set too and I LOVE Harley Quinn*grins evil*)

But for now I hope you enjoyed my person vision of a modern steampunk Phoenix πŸ˜‰

Real Friendship

blog version

Tempest & Wicca wearing Blacklace – “Passione – Leo Print & Lace Bra Set”

Today I have something very special…

Tempest Rosca, an incredible photographer, an amazing model and what counts even more for me… one of the ‘oldest’ and best friends I ever met in SL.

Tempest and me go way back and share quite a long past. We met in the early days of our modeling back on 2008/2009. That makes about 7 years… holy… time goes by!

The more I was happy when she IMed me and said “Wic.. do not blog the next Blacklace you get, let’s do it together!” God how iI could even think other than yes, when I thought about Tempe’s amazing pictures – I would get an original Tempest Rosca shoot!

Since I know how important a vision is for a photographer, I asked her if she had a special styling in mind. She just said “Hold on I send you a snap in a few but think lioness, princess, queen…” That sounded about Tempe… we get lingerie and she is talking about lions *giggles* I just love her. She has her own way of craziness and it seems to get well along with mine :p

When we met, while she was arranging the poses she had in mind we again had some great time for talking. Do you know that feeling.. you have friends, that you do not see or talk to every day, but when you met them it feels like it would be like that? That Tempe and me share.. we both have our own Second Life, but it crosses here and there and the it feels again so close and familiar, just amazing. We talked about old times, changes, new times and it felt so good to just talk away without any fears to say something wrong or something that he other would take wrong. Tempe and me never ever had that issue, we can talk about everything even about things we dislike or disagree and it never ever hit our friendship. That is very rare for me and with that it has one of the highest value. Exactly that to me is real friendship. We do not need kissy kissy everyday and as well we can talk clear and straight, without taking it wrong from each other – that can be so freeing and relaxing… I have no clue how long we talked until she found the right poses, angles and setting but I enjoyed every single second of it.

When I saw the picture I was speechless… it is incredible and perfect and again I know why I admire Tempe’s skills for pictures.

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening and an incredible picture Tempe – and yes.. next time it will be my turn and I am looking forward to it!!!

Sometimes…

You can take away all my love, what do I need it for?
You can take away all these words, there’s no meaning anymore
You can take away everything, leave me lying on the floor
All those sorry’s, we can’t go back to the start
You can’t fix me, I’m torn apart

Sometimes life feels dark…

Sometimes life feels empty…

Sometimes you feel teared apart…

Sometimes you see no light…

Sometimes you just feel nothing…

Sometimes you do not know what to do…

… But then…

You open your eyes, still full of tears and look up.

You take the hand, someone is reaching out and stand up again.

Exciting News for 2015 @ Wicca’s Wardrobe & Happy New Year!

Sazzy&Wicca Sexy 2

Today again is a very special to me as I can bring already a short sneak peel of some news at Wicca’s Wardrobe of 2015 πŸ˜‰

To already show part of the great newness I asked Sazzy Nirpaw to be with me for this amazing post for a very special reason.

Today’s post will be about a new release at Wicca’s Wardrobe and as well an introduction of a special new collection located at Wicca’s Wardrobe.

The ones of you who know me and Wicca’s Wardrobe for a while may know Sazzy Nirpaw as my COO and as well my personal assistant and very dear friend. But that’s not yet all πŸ™‚

Sazzy as well has amazing designing skills and already had a store way before Wicca’s Wardrobe was in my mind πŸ˜‰ Many of you might remember her brand FATAL.

She closed her doors couple of years ago and for me it felt kinda as a loss for the SL fashion world since then. But she wanted to develop herself more and had various other projects and things she wanted to get done. But lately we more and more talked about FATAL again and the more we talked the more the idea was growing in both of our minds. I kept nagging her about her amazing designing and creator skills – I guess I was close to just get yelled at for not stopping my bothering :p

But… it seems my constant poking was not for nothing^^

Sazzy agreed to think about designing again!

I am very proud and honored that I may show you the very first release of the Wicca’s Wardrobe [FATAL] collection…

The “Sense & Sensuality” lingerie!

This amazing lingerie ensemble contains bra, panties, corset and stockings. The corset is mesh made while the bra, panties and stockings come as layers forΒ  very special reason.

For the very first time me and Saz were sitting together to figure out how the appliers for the Slink Physique are working.

Saz made the amazing “Sense & Sensuality” set in 6 different colors. For today’s post Saz is wearing the ‘black’ version and I decided to go with the ‘navy’ one.

The great thing of that lingerie is, it can be worn as usual layer clothing with the mesh corset AND with the Slink Physique mesh body. We included a HUD where you can apply the bra, panties and stockings to body, legs and feet.

So be sure to take a look and find the color that matches you best for a wonderful evening with the one you love πŸ˜‰

Thank you Sazzy for your work, trust, and friendship and I hope that’s the beginning of another chapter in the book we are allowed to write together – our book of the wonderful journey that brought us till where we are now <3

I am very proud, honored and happy to have Saz now not anymore only as a COO – I am looking forward to a great collaboration of Wicca’s Wardrobe & FATAL!

Happy New Year from Wicca’s Wardrobe & FATAL

Stunning news from !deviousMind & EMO-tions

!dM 24 001

Today I would like to lead your view on one of the latest releases from deviousMind (!dM). For “The 24” event, Chandra Meehan created a wonderful and sexy dress called “Yve”.

!dM 24 002

“Yve” is part of kinda a new mini collection of deviousMind. The thing that combines all of the new designs are the ivy petals that are used for ornaments, decoration and parts of the textures. The “Yve” dress has a super cool feature. If you purchase one at “The 24” event, where it is sold as an exclusive design, you will get a hell lot of options with that dress.

!dM 24 003

As I unpacked my “Yve” dress, i first looked for the HUD, as I saw at the advertise, that it should be color change. Since the dress it self is mesh made, I thought you can change the texture and color by a HUD. But there was none and as I anyways was talking to Chandra, I asked her and she told me to just touch the dress… I was like… “oook but mesh you usually cannot touch, if it is rigged” but she just answered that if SL gives me trouble by touch only, I should just right click it and choose the option touch. I was very surprised after I touched the dress and got a menu. With the menu you can easy recolor the dress to your likings. The “Ivy” dress comes in various sizes so you can make sure you get one to fit your shape. As well you will find 2 version of each size for the dress, one metallics and one metallic material, where you can choose from. This dress is really a must have for all who dare to be different πŸ˜‰

You still have a few days left to get one of the “Yve” at the “The 24” event, but hurry only 100 are available and there is not too much left!

The “Dream” hairstyle and the “Wild Garden” necklace are one of the latest releases of EMO-tions. The hair style is perfect for any elegant or even fashionista look. The ears are free and you can showcase perfectly earrings and jewelry ;). The “Wild Garden” is a wonderful necklace of the mesh jewelry collection of EMO-tions. With the filigree lines in black and silver and the little decorations, that are added on them it made the perfect finish for my today’s look.

Mea Culpa goes Fetish Fashion!

As I promised in my last Mea Culpa post, there is another amazing outfits of the new Mea Culpa X-Treme line. Tatanka Kaligawa himself named it Fetish Fashion and created a new line beside the Avantgarde and Couture designs in his store.

Again we can see the basic fabric is kinda latex and for the “Black Mamba” we have those wonderful long and flexible tentacles all over. What caught my eye is the cool hat that looks very stylish to the whole outfit . A very sexy touch is given by the body and the opaque stockings that are held by garters and show lots of skin πŸ˜‰

The absolute perfect jewelry for this outfit in my opinion is the “Noir” set from Finesmith Designs. The lashes are as well part of the “Noir” set of Finesmith Designs and go well along with the collar, the earings and the nails of the same collection.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Angel Dessous News and Finesmith’s RLF contribution… my vision ;)

I had a dream … wich girl would not dream about a to be captured and rescued by a strongΒ  handsome knight…

One of the latest creations ofΒ  Angel Dessous is called “Mona”. A wonderful and beautiful lingerie set, as well available in black. “Mona includes bracelets and a necklace as well even if I used for this post the great contribution of Finesmith Designs for the Glance RLF event. But to that I come a bit later πŸ˜‰ “Mona” is a very exquisite lingerie set and you can see how long Nando Korobase must have sat on that design. All this amazing different and filigree textures show how detailed Nando works if he creates new outfits. The stockings you have the nylon fabric for the down part. The top is ends in an awesome lace texture that accents the ladies long well-shaped legs so beautiful. The sweet, neat garters that lead over to the delicate panties… stunning and seductive ;). The corsage as well looks very elegant and sexy and with the lovely prim ribbon in the front it gets a light playful touch as well. The gloves with the amazing bracelets are as well part of the “Mona” outfit.

Now lets take a closer look the great feather collar that yula Finsmith made for the Glance RFL 2011…

An amazing little piece of art that totally matched my vision for this styling πŸ˜‰ the collar itself is made of 2 colors for the white as well as for the black one. version. The white version has black white black for the collar itself the black one just the other way round and for sure the difference of this both is the white or black color of the feathers. This accessory is really a wonderful addition to every look and it is sold for a good cause as well πŸ˜‰ So you should not even think about if you must have the “Divine Spirit White Feathers”Β  or not πŸ˜‰

The face tattoo comes from White Widow and is one out of the latest line Julie Hastings released. “Volute” is available in 5 different colors (black, copper, gold, red and silver) and each color comes with 3 different versions like for both eyes, or left and right only πŸ™‚

The skin is one of the newest from Glam Affair called “Mary” for this post in the light tone. For sure I will show the rest of the make ups of this amazing skin soon in an extra blogpost πŸ˜‰

But now I guess I should stop dreaming about the strong handsome knight that comes rescue me out of my chains and go back to work πŸ˜‰
