Golden Angel

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead

[Robbie Williams]

When I unpacked the “Posh Body Suit” from GizzA, which is sold at the actual round of Tres Chic, I immediately had the feeling of a dreamy angel and some fantasy ideas.

The outfit comes with the amazing body suit, the leg jewelry and the wings. You can purchase many different colors and I decided to go with the stone color, as it worked best with the windlight I was using, plus I planned the gold/copper look and for that it did reflect the lights best for that purpose. You get a 3 HUDs as well that allows you to change the gems of the Bodysuit, the leg and the head gemstones to 9 different colors.

I wanted some very filigree, delicate shoes for the look to not overpower the dreamy, light feeling of the outfit. I tried a few and in the end I chose the “Camilla” heels from Glamistry. With all the laces and as well the high platform they just looked perfect to the whole look.

For the set, I used the I used the “Golden Moon”, a rare item from the Golden Dreams gacha of Yokai. It has some poses in-built, but I went with my own, because I already had a special idea how I wanted to pose 😉 The moon comes with cute little particle stars, which fall down from the top.

The amazing golden particles and the delicate golden leafs do come from E.V.E Studio. I love to use Noke’s awesome creations for my sets as they always add something dreamy or artistic to them 😉

I do not wanna miss a close up for the makeup and the stunning hand piercings.

The exquisite eyeshadow was made by Slackgirl. I love the smooth shadow, the delicate little dotted ornaments upper the eyelid and the smokey, smooth gradient down to a solid color. The “ColrUs Shadow” HUD comes with 8 colors, available for Catwa, Akeruka and as Omega applier.

The stunning hand jewelry was made by Mea Carnell, owner and designer of MEVA. To be precise, it is not just normal hand jewelry… even better they are piercings! How cool is that?!

Everyone can wear rings and bracelets but who dares to have piercings in their hands 😉 ? I do! :p The “Bento Hand Rings” are made for Maitreya bento hands and they are rigged so perfectly. It is great to have a creative alternative to rings only, especially if you look for something etxra ordinary.

The cool bronze lipstick, which completed my makeup perfectly, was made by Zibska. It is included in the “Leyla” lipstick palette with 29 other amazing colors.

I do not often have dreamy angel moments but I quite enjoy it right now 😉 Lets see, if I can make some falling stars so you can have some wishes ♥

Black & Gold – Happy New Year!

 

Back & Gold… always an exciting and most of the time elegant color combination. To me it was always kinda powerful, as well as it is a great contrast between the dark and more matte looking black and the shining and bright gold tones 😉

I started with the “Lily Dress” from United Colors. That dress really is an amazing design. It comes with a HUD, that lets you change the style of the dress from a ground long dress to the sexy upper body design and as a bra top style only! So with the purchase of the dress you will get 3!

I do love mix and match and layering clothing, to create interesting looks, that do not show everything on the first view and so I put the amazing “Ulla” bodice under the “Lily Dress”. With the delicate lace parts and the solid middle part, it was perfect to go with the amazing dress. To stay with the gold & black idea I added the wonderful “Metallic Arrow” tattoo from Izzie’s. The tattoo comes in a gold version and several silver shades as well.

The great bracelet on my right hand and the amazing eyepatch are made by Bauhaus Movement, while iI used one of the “Lady Faith” gloves from Asteria for my left hand – yes, I really do like non symmetrical accessories 😉

The awesome fitting rings are designed and made by Ivi, Bing, owner and designer of Formanails, who did as well the amazing mesh nails with these incredible filigree gold topping.

The eye makeup I found at Nanika. With that golden tear and  the golden dust around the eyes it was a perfect match for my todays look.

For the shoes I used the “Monarch Heels” made by Reign, which I picked up on the great Black Friday sale. The have a huge HUD for leather and metal colors and so it was easy to color them in black and gold as well, to match the styling 😉

For the set, I was thinking a long time what to do, until I decided to go with a more minimalistic look. I only wanted something black and gold for the set as well and not something that totally overloads the whole picture. I decided to go with the amazing bath tube from the pose shop and the awesome “Confetti Balloons” from Apple Fall.

I wish you all some golden and amazing times for 2017 😉

Happy New Year!

Surrealistic Autumn with Asteria, EMO-tions and E.V.E Studio

asteriapurplemoonemotions-1

Surrealism was something, that I liked a lot in school and university when it came to art. The possibility to combine things that do not belong together or even play with sizes to really unnatural proportions can be a lot of fun. To mix dreams and reality as well has a very attractive side for me.

Surrealism:

Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. The aim was to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality”. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself.

Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur; however, many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artifact. Leader André Breton was explicit in his assertion that Surrealism was, above all, a revolutionary movement.

Surrealism developed out of the Dada activities during World War I and the most important center of the movement was Paris. From the 1920s onward, the movement spread around the globe, eventually affecting the visual arts, literature, film, and music of many countries and languages, as well as political thought and practice, philosophy, and social theory. [Wikipedia]

E.V.E Studio lately inspires me a lot, to do more surrealistic looking pictures, because Noke keeps releasing so amazing art pieces which are super cool for little sets. This time it was the “Chained Tree” from E.V.E Studio, that brought me on the idea for todays pictures. The tree is part of the “Whispers Gacha”, which originally was made for Chapter 4. To give the whole set more ambience feeling I added the golden version of the “Ivy Tree” (which as well was part of a gacha from E.V.E Studio), some dry grass from [we’re closed] and the cute “Floating Watering Can” from striped mocha.

First I thought about doing a creepy Halloween themed story, but after looking at all the gold it called more autumn that actually creepy Halloween at me :p.

I remembered a wonderful body suit with a cute leather harness from Asteria, that I did get not too long ago. Together with the awesome “Lost Mind Headdress” from PurpleMoon, the “Jane” outfit from Asteria it made the perfect look for a warm autumn picture series.  Since I was in a total autumn mood by now I added some tights, as I had the feeling, with naked legs, I would freeze like mad outside *snickers*, but the amazing “Sheer Tights” from Izzie’s took care of that ;). The “Jane” outfit from Asteria is made in 3 pieces. The sleeves, the body suit and the little harness. and you can mix and match with different colors as well if you like.

asteriapurplemoonemotions-3

The amazing hair cut is one of the latest releases from EMO-tions called “Melanie”. With the long hair that falls down straight over the shoulders to the front it looked amazing with the head-piece and the outfit and was the right match to get the feeling for the look as I wanted it.

I learned something again… even if you plan on something spooky dark scary, it can turn out as something warm and light :p

Golden Times with [sys] and E.V.E Studio

golden-times-1

We can be golden
Why don’t we show them
All of the life there’s meant to be
We can be golden
Look what we holdin’
Better than angels if you believe

More and more I like the idea of blogging with friends. It gives so much more possibilities even if it might be a tiny wee bit more time intense as you need to find times when you can shoot  together, but they are worth every single second 😉

This time it was the return game with Tempe. She did a wonderful picture of us both not too long ago and the deal was – once she does the pic and once I will. (Link to the post/picture)

So this time it was my time. First I thought about lingerie, but to compete with the picture Tempe did – impossible! So I thought about something different. I was thinking about, what I do love most and as well about the craziness we both have and came across an idea…

I IMed Tempe, asking her what she would think about a post with [sys], since we both like to blog them very much (yes I follow her blog and flickr certainly*grins*).

So it was a given, we needed to do something crazy or editorial or even both :p

We came across, that we both own the “Venus” dress from [sys], so Tempe was going for the black/gold version and I used the golden one. The basic idea was “No reigns, no rules – just go what you feel” and we both came up with something wild looking – I simply loved it. Again it showed why we go so well along, our craziness goes so well together :p.

For the set I immediately had the idea of a lot of gold, when Tempe sent me a snapshot of her styling. One of the latest releases was the “Flowers of the Golden Apple”. The huge golden apples come in 2 versions – once with and once without that sweet golden/white flower petals on the bottom. I added the “Splashing Droplets” in gold which were circling around us since they are animated 😉

The cute balloons I found at the ‘Book of Daniel’ fundraiser. They come in different variations but for today, I certainly chose the golden one.

Last but not least, the golden ‘rain’ in the back, I created from the “Segmented Curtain” made by 22769.

We had again a great time and I experienced once more how awesome it is to work together with a real friend. More fun, more ideas, more challenge;) Let’s see who I will poke next… I think I already have an idea…

“One last sunbeam before the long cold winter” featuring Prism & EMO-tions

Prism Alouette 02

This time I have something very special. I got it longer ago, but with all the RL crap that was going on lately with things, which really were throwing me out of line for quite some time, it had to wait till now. But it is such an amazing dress that I could not forget about it 😉

I am talking about the “Alouette” dress in the ‘sparrow’ version. The long mesh dress catches attention with the exciting and captivating texture. The white sparrow on the orange/salmon background bring so much light and sun back to the cold and grey autumn days, that this dress shines kinda like the last sunbeam before the long and dark winter is coming 😉

With the dress as well the golden belt and bracelets come. I just moved up the right bracelet and made it kinda like an armlet, as I like the non symmetric looks.

The hair is one of the newest releases from EMO-tions, called “Arielle”. The long and straight mesh hairstyle leaves the left shoulder free and over the right shoulders, it falls down in the front.

With the “Alouette” dress, the “Arielle” hair and the “Naughty Couture Heels” in white from Dirty Princess, the whole look got a very simple everyday touch. But I wanted something more special for the amazing sparrows 😉

So I added the “Overcast” hat made by Lode and the cute “Chatterbox Clutch” from 7891.

Recently I I fell in love with a new skin. [sys] released 2 new skin lines and I totally fell in love with the “Eva” skin. It has amazing details and to the same time it looks so smooth and realistic – just stunning! I promise I soon will have a spotlight blog about my new skin 😉

For the makeup I again used one of my long time favourites. Launa Fauna makes super stunning 3D looking lips since I can think of and I rarely found lips I liked more than those and they matched the “Eva” lips so well. For the eye makeup as well I am wearing a Launa Fauna design called “Midnight Glitter Swipe” and I added the “Twotone Makeup” in gold warm-gray over it.

I know the summer is kinda over but with this look, I at least could bring back some of it to my mind 😉

Golden Dreams with Enfant Terrible

Enfant Terrible Full

I am very happy that I may showcase some news from Enfant Terrible.

With all her new releases it was a hard decision, what to blog first.

I decided to star with the new “Moonchild”set. It’s parts are all part of a gacha. You will find 3 different colors for all the items in the gacha – gold, black & white. The common prizes are 3 animated butterflies, the amazing nose chain and a matching necklace wich I changed in this post for another new release of Enfant Terrible, the unisex “Caelens Armor” chest part in gold.

The rare items for that fantastic gacha of Enfant Terrible are the wonderful crowns as well in 3 colors and for the 3 ultra rare items we have the incredible staffs in the shape of a moon.

For the basic outfit to underline the golden dream I chose the “Karolina” bodysuit in gold from Countdown.

I am sure will have fun playing that gacha!

Hunger Games Tribute by Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW - Johanna 01

“Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

And again I am back with another of my creations for the Hunger Games Tribute event ran by Opium Evolution.

Today I would like to showcase my “Johanna” dress. This dress is made with the idea of Capitol Couture.

The dress is basically a short dress with a long train in the back. The shoulders are free and a huge collar lays round the neck. To connect the dress and the collar I placed one of the popular mockingjaw brooches at the left side of the chest. The dress itself has a basic black texture and the golden brocade corset sets a wonderful accent to the black and gives the whole ensemble a sophisticated touch. To bring back the gold, the long train was overlayed with a golden gitter net looking gaze. The huge black and gold headpiece as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and an unrigged version.

To complete the look I added one armlet in black and one bracelet in gold.

At the moment you can see all my new releases for the Hunger Games Tribute even – female AND male – at the shopping area of the Hunger Games Tribute event sim (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)
