Ballet – Classic versus Contemporary

Eclipse Magazine, August 2020: https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_august_2020

For this issue of the Eclipse Magazine I was thinking a long time what I could do. I wanted a challenge for myself and I wanted to show that I can do different genres, not just the scary and crazy stuff πŸ˜‰

When I thought about what would be the most opposite thing for me to do, I came across ballet. Something graceful and beautiful. While I was doing some research about it, I came across contemporary ballet as well. That really caught my attention, because I found some very impressing as well as emotional pictures and videos. That formed an idea of having 2 different pictures for the magazine – classic and contemporary. In the classic ballet I found very strict rules for the look and even for the hairstyles, while contemporary ballet gives you more freedom in that.

I felt like I was entering a new world, even if ballet wasn’t completely new for me – as a kid I had to go through that kids ballet classes like so many of us. It didn’t last long as I had more fun with gymnastics, riding, swimming and playing volleyball and so those ballet classes stopped after at most a year I think. Being a punk and later a gothic girl in my teens and twens, ballet wasn’t a thing or an option at all *giggles*

Seeing all those pictures and videos, inspired me a lot and the idea for this month genre was made. While I was thinking, where I could find the clothing and accessories for my new idea, Salt & Pepper must have read my mind. She released a huge set of ballet collection at Equal 10 with her “Ballet Dancer Set”. That was the perfect outfit for my classic ballet dancer. I couldn’t even use all parts for my first picture, that means I will have to do another post to show the whole beauty and contents of that set.

For my second picture, I did remember a set, which I already showcased on my blog in the light version. Since I wanted the classic ballet to be in a light muted color, the contemporary ballet was meant to be darker and more ‘me’ and my personal thought of it and so the “Skye Dancer” gacha in black was the perfect choice for what I had in mind. I am really a lover of mix and match but sometimes, if you go for a certain look or genre, mixing too many things and overload the avatar can be contra-productive. That is why I nearly have no accessories or anything that could disturb from the essence of the picture, the emotions and the mood.

A huge thank you goes out to my sister Daffodil Crimson, who helped me with the amazing description for the magazine. English is not my native language, so I often hit her IM box, if it comes to “official” texts for magazines and such. Usually I do collect facts and free sources or try toΒ  write somethings on my own, if I am familiar with the theme. For the ballet one I only had a brief idea what I wanted to be written and that time Daffi jumped in and wrote everything on her own. When she came it to me to read it, I just was blown away! It was so very well written and had exactly in it what I was desiring for, but in words that described it so much better than anything I could have come up with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for again saving my SL life like so often sis!!!

I hope you enjoyed my little ballet adventure – for the next issue of Eclipse Magazine I will have another “unusual” genre for me, which gives me quite a challenge but I am looking forward to the final frames πŸ˜‰

River 2.0 joins the LeLUTKA Evolution Family!

Finally RL did set me free and I can show you that amazing new head from LeLUTKA! The whole week I was trying to finish the post and RL always interrupted me *frowns*

“River 2.0” is the latest addition for the LeLUTKA Evolution Family. It was released on the IBTC event this month. The head has the same amazing features as all the new Evolution heads have, PLUS it does allow a very awesome androgynous look. That is why LeLUTKA included male hairbases and beards for this head, what basically makes this the first “unisex” head for me. Depending on the shape and skin (for this post I used the original shape and skin, which come with the head) that you will use you can decide if you wan a more male or female look for your face.

On the same event, the new Maitreya “Flat Chest Add-on” was introduced… perfect for my androgyny look I was looking for! With that add-on you can just “overwrite” your female Maitreya “Lara” mesh body and have a flatΒ  boy chest instead of your regular female one. It is really easy, as you only have to exchange your Maitreya HUD to the new Flat Chest one and add the flat chest add-on on top of your Maitreya body.

There will be soon more with that special combination of “River 2.0” and the new “Flat Chest Add-on” – I really like to play with that new and special look and gives me the possibility to wear some male clothing, too πŸ˜‰

Humanity doesn’t count anymore?

Sometimes life just a bitch… or better not life it self but the people around you who you count on. About 6 years ago, I was asked if I would like to teach again. I had studied to become a teacher but I never did the second exam, as music took over back then and in the end I never saw me as a full time teacher anyways, because I need variety on my life and that is why I chose to be a musician.

So after nearly 15 years I was asked if I could help to built up a school band at a regular school. It sounded like fun and now after 8 years I am even leasing it on my own. While I was just working on music lessons and ensemble classes,Β  I was asked if I could jump in with regular teaching as well, because one of the teacher of the school became sick. I thought why not and gave it a try with just a few hours per week over a couple of weeks. That apparently did work out so well, that I got asked if I could imagine to be a regular teacher as well just not full time but with a certain amount of hours per week – that was about 6 yearsΒ  ago. Over the time I did well enough so they asked me for more hours per week and since all the people at this school were so nice and I anyways was there for the school band it really was a great time. I even got the leadership for the English and Music department for the school and did all the exams for that the past 4/5 years – the past 3 years all on my own. So I thought, the state – which is the employer for teachers – seems ok with me being at that school. I only got yearly contracts, but that is quite normal when you only have the first exam but not the second one.

But my work must have been good enough and it was even to see with the kids. When I started, I had one person doing the final exams in English and 2 who did Music. Now after 6 years I have 18 students doing the English exams and 12 or more who do Music. And 98% of them graduated with amazing results! For English that is not not normal in that tyle pf school as they usually already struggle with Maths and German.

And then a couple of days ago, I was told I am not longer needed. It felt like a punch right in my face. With Corona the teacher situation is anyways not the best at the moment and they tell me I am no long er needed?!? Then all of a sudden a few days later, they told me to apply again and made it very urgent, so I stopped doing what I was doing and sat down writing my application again. A day later I get an email that my application wasn’t successful and that I already had way too long contracts without having my second exam… I was like WTF? They need people and I was doing a good job with success that was visible… I just lost all trust into the world around me. With that happening they even risk the school band as they have no one who has the skills nor the will to run it. We are an inclusion school.. a school were all kids can be anyways if they are completely healthy, autistic or disabled ion any other way. That as well means you have different way of teaching and music is not just achievement-oriented, but as well a certain type or therapy. That means it is not a typical school band. I have 40 up to 78 kids every year in one band sitting in one room and half of them have their little “weakness” in what ever kind of way. I do not care about those and try to take them as they are, trying to make everything possible so they can learn an instrument, percussions or singing as well, even if the conditions are not that great. I simply enjoy the smile if a student holds a guitar and can play some sort of power chords even if their fingers are not working 100%, or an autistic that can relax while doing percussions and forget about being different than other kids. Over the years I was allowed to learn so much and I enjoyed every minute of it. We even won regular school band contests and were told we are just such a huge bunch of diversity and unique characters. And now they tell me I already had too many contracts for having no second exam?!? Experiences, workshops and seminars plus good work does not count? I have to say getting the second exam you have to teach for 2 years under the wings of an older teacher – that is all. So 6 years of successful work doesn’t make up for missing 2 years of tutored teaching?!? Seriously I do not understand the world anymore if paragraphs count more than the kids or their happiness and success. I do not know yet, what I will do as I am feeling way too hurt and broken at the moment and Corona doesn’t make it easy either to go back doing more music again or give private music lessons. I know something will pop up and make it better again – it always was like that but for now I am just speechless how people can decide over other people like that not even knowing or being interested to look deeper into their work. Humanity doesn’t count againts rules and paragraphs anymore…

Eastern Asian Adventure! – NEWS from LeLUTKA

And again I have a wonderful new release from LeLUTKA! This time, LeLUTKA gives more attention to their East Asian customers with the new “Ryn 2.0” Evolution head (for the males there is a pendant named “Kane”)

The head has a very young look and so I wanted to find something what would work with such a look and came across the Kawaii genre. It was against my ethnics to put her in lingerie or something too sexy as she has more of a teen or young women look to me with this kind of shape and skin. Certainly I had to use the amazing piercings again that come with the head πŸ˜‰ Ryn certainly has all the amazing features of the 2.0 Evolution line as well!

It amazes me how LeLUTKa has the skills and passion, to make such different heads for all the ethnics around the world. We had the amazing wonderful African or African-American head with Nuri, we had all kind of European, American heads with Lake, Erin, Nova and now we get the Asian look as well with Ryn. You still can twist your shape and have even all the subcultures of the Asian ethnic with this head, I just wanted to blog it as pure as possible with my first post – I only made the nose a tiny wee bit smaller as it came. I am sure that won’t be my last post as I enjoyed my little journey into the Kawaii look and there is so many more genres you can do with that look πŸ˜‰

So pop over to the LeLUTKA main store and try out the new – and maybe even all the other ones, too – heads!

Time Warp!

TUNES

It’s astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely
Not for very much longer
I’ve got to keep control
I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me
And the void would be calling
Let’s do the Time Warp again

[Rocky Horror Show]

And again we are at Mainframe with the designs of todays post. I really love that event, it gives you so much crazy and awesome things to play with. Today I wanted to post something about that super amazing time portal from Ex Machina. It is a huge design, so I had to think about a way to showcase the full creation. I didn’t want to just stay in front of the portal and started playing with the idea of being swallowed by it :p – That was the outcome of that and I really enjoy that thought.

A Look into the Mirror…

As I promised yesterday, I had to play a little bit with the new Fleur 2.0 head, which will be available at the LeLUTKA main store soon! Yesterday I used the shape, which came with the head without tweaking it. Today I got the amazing skins from Glam Affair, which were made especially for the new Fleur 2.0 head. After trying the all, I decided to do my first look with the “Muse “skin.

While I was playing around with the shape, I got such a cool idea, how I could showcase the new Fleur 2.0 head, the Muse skin from Glam Affair AND the amazing face mask from LeLUTKA, that is included in the Fleur 2.0 head pack. I could do a mirror shoot, facing my own evil side in the mirror! Since we have no real mirror option in SL yet, you always have to cheat around a little bit with PS and while you are shooting as well to get the right angle and view. What I do love a lot is all the cool face mods you get with the Fleur 2.0 head. For example on the good girl, you see those amazing smile lines, which make the look so much more realistic and unique. Or the incredible face masks – where I chose to wear the No. #1 of 3 that you get with the head update as well – on the bad girl.

There is so much more to play with, I am still not done with my Fleur 2.0 posts and pictures I guess *grins*

To have a complete overview of the new update, please scroll down after the credits as I put all the new features there for you to get an idea, why you should keep an eye on the LeLUTKA new releases on the coming weekend πŸ˜‰

Lost you in the crowd

LeLUTKA did it again!!!

They released another gorgeous new head for their Evolution Line called “Nuri”. Usually I try to combine different skins and shapes and try to ‘own’ every new head before I do pictures. Sometimes that takes a while until I am satisfied, but this time when I saw the “Nuri” head, I felt that African-American beauty of the basic structure of the head. I just had to use the original skin that comes with the head to really showcase that incredible work of LeLUTKA again. The head is very sophisticated and with some much love to the details. I always admired how LeLUTKA does give attention to different ethnics and how well the specific trademarks are brought to (virtual) life. The skin is one of the 4 original skins that come with the “Nuri” head. They perfectly work with the Glam Affair Body skins (OVERVIEW). I will play a little more with the Glam Affair skins made for the “Nuri” head for one of my next posts, but for now please do enjoy the natural beauty of “Nuri”

Alien Species

TUNES

I’m an alien
I hope I ever get to see
I’m an alien
My beam of light is breaking free

Too alien for Earth
Too human for outer space
I’m an alien
It’s time to leave for outer space

AgainΒ  I come to you with some exciting news from CerberusXing. He again made a pair of kick ass ears – the “Withered Berzerker Ears”! The ears are unrigged mesh, which gives you the possibility to resize and position them to your needs. The HUD offers texture and tinting options for skin (12 presets), piercing (black, silver & gold) and the snake ( 7 different colors). Furthermore you have 2 tattoo options with 7 different colors and the possibility to hide it. CerberusXing as well was so generous to include a skin texture map, so you can do your own modifications if you like. Doing so would require basic editing skills as you have to work with textures and applying them to the object.

Speaking of modifications, Nefekalum Tattoos offers already one called “Battle Add-On”, which I certainly had to try for my post πŸ˜‰ And since I an anyways addicted to the extraordinary work of Sir Skye, I had to use one of his newest releases for my tattoo as well. I am talking about the “Inked” tattoo, which you can find at his main store. An unisex tattoo, that comes with many options and possibilities as Omega Evolved appliers with materials, Maitreya Applier, Slink Redux Applier, Catwa Applier and certainly system, BoM ready layers and he again included some optional projectors you can use to let your tattoo shine in the right light πŸ˜‰

To complete my outfit I used an older but for me still super amazing gacha from CerberusXing – the “Osseous Species” gacha. What I love so much on that outfit set are the spike parts, the tubes at the collar and the colors and textures the whole ensemble is designed with. It immediately reminded me about HR Giger and so I had to make a set in that style for my pictures as well.Thank god, 22769 made some great tribute designs that perfectly worked for my idea πŸ™‚

Since I am anyways in a space and species mood, I guess I will jump into my Mainframe event folder and see what is left in there for my next picture πŸ˜‰

I hate the world today…

I hate the world today
You’re so good to me
I know but I can’t change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I’m an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
