Disarranged…

The picture exactly shows how I feel sometimes… Totally disarranged but… somehow still interesting*laughs*

Did you ever came across such a situation where you had something in mind, started to style for your idea and for whatever reason, the whole concept fell and was replaced by a complete different idea? It happens to me so often…

When I started to dress for this post, I had a military style in mind with the “Orsay” dress, but then I remembered the cool puppet hanger from Curio Obscura and the same time [Gos] released their “Natalie” ankle boots and all of a sudden my idea changed to something complete different. The first idea only had the dress in the focus and then I got shoes that matched so wonderful so I had to find an idea where i can showcase the dress AND the shoes 😉

Recently I had to re-think my idea for shoe posts as I did not like the “closeup only” pictures of shoes and accessories. I wanted something that still would allow more than just one part of the body in the picture and so I started experimenting a lot with crazy poses, crouch poses and certain sit and kneel poses. Sometimes it becomes more editorial looking and sometimes it just falls in place to a cool picture with the right angle. It is really fun the more you dare to fool around with poses and angles. Sometimes it just looks weird but if you just try a little more and not be afraid of crazy ideas it becomes way more exciting and interesting.

I will try to play more with those kid of ideas in the future and hope you will enjoy the results as much as I do 😉 Thanks a lot for reading!

Pink Therapy!

Pink always was and is a challenge to me. Some of you might remember times, when I tried to act like I had a pink allergy and even had a special skin with pimples and spots. Or if I got pink outfits for shows, I always predicted I had to have my medicine and pills with me to not get those allergy symptoms again. It was fun times and for what ever reason even nowadays people approach me about that allergy 😉

That even more encourages me sometimes, to try something in pink as it can be a very strong color and not just a Barbie girl tone.

First I wanted to do a picture where I sit on an object, because I wanted to showcase the shoes as well as the dress, the hair and the jewelry. I realized, if I just have a simple standing pose, most of the time the shoes get lost in the whole picture as they turn out way to tiny compared to the the rest of the picture. But I did not just want a little close up on the blog either and no hint for my flickr picture.

Everything what I tried to sit on – that did not seem boring and strong enough as well as matching my mood – did not work out. After some time I really got frustrated and had to step away from the whole thing. I logged out and went to the couch, to continue reading my book. After a couple of hours, I took a look at the watch and it was not yet that late. I thought I should give it another try and see if now the muse would be genuine enough to come back and maybe even kiss me again.

First I did throw the idea away to pose sitting on something and reduced the set drastically to some lights and effects from E.V.E Studio. I still was I a certain mood, which I wanted to express via the pictures as well. Something pensive, lightly fragile and with – here I have to credit Ephemeral Skye, since he was so kind to listen to my frustration and had kind words, which helped to go back to the whole project – “a hint of defiance in her as well”. It made me speechless that he tried to see “behind” the picture and saw what I tried to aim for. He is an incredible artist, which I adore personally for his creativity and ideas and if someone with that outrageous skills gives you such kind words… that is really motivating I have to admit and I am really grateful about that.

If you have a very minimal background, poses and angles count even more to have an interesting picture in the end. I love to jump into my Poseidon poses folder when I try to have a strong mood or attitude in mind. I have no idea how Gryphon Vendetta does it, but he ALWAYS hits the nail on the head when he makes his poses. They are so strong and expressive, even if they have an ’emo’ feeling to them. You can play with the angles amazingly with Poseidon poses as there is always more than one view that works. With the right crops you can even use extreme poses or flying poses without having their initial purpose shown.

Before I now go back to my inventory and look, what I could use for my next look, I would like take a closer look at the shoes, even if they are shown in the picture at the beginning. I so often feel that shoes are underestimated and as well way too often taken for granted.

The new “Charlie Platform Sandals” are available at the actual round of Fameshed (like the amazing dress that I am wearing for todays post as well). The perfect spring season heels come as usual for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet and have the amazing 3 new HUDs that [Gos] includes for all their new releases. The Boutique HUD for the amazing [Gos] colors we all know,  as well the Metallic and the Blueberry HUD with matching colors for your Blueberry clothing.

Afterall I have to admit… pink isn’t that bad 😉

Those Moments…

Sometimes you have something in mind and as much as you try… it won’t look like you first wanted it.

Do you know that feeling? You built a wonderful set, you had all kind of poses in mind to bring your set and vision alive and what ever you try it looks wrong?

Exactly that happened to me today. I was fooling around over 3 hours, stubborn about my first idea and anyways what I tried – pushing furniture around, changing poses, twisting poses and even make poses – nothing worked…

So I gave up on the first idea and since I anyways love playing with poses, I went into my Poseidon poses folder and started going through them. The dress (like dresses always do) limited the possibilities lightly because of the legs movement, but the more I played with them the more I got new courage and new ideas about how todays pictures should look like. I trashed my set and just played with poses, windlights and shadows.

Today my style was based off the amazing “Rihanna” boots from [Gos].

“Step into Rihanna, a sky-high thigh high boot featuring perforation detailed accented by a metal-capped square toe and sculpted-metal stiletto heel.
Rihanna is available in 3 colour HUDs – Boutique, Blueberry, and Metallics – each sold separately or as a collection. The Boutique HUD includes 16 current, in-season colours perfect for any fashionista, the Blueberry HUD includes 20 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry, and the Metallics HUD include 7 metallics which will have your feet shining. Each HUD also includes 5 sole and 3 metal options.” Gospel Voom states and he is not exaggerating!

The boots are skin tight and with the perforation something very special. It as well shows how accurate the boots are made and rigged as you cannot alpha out anything!

The cool dress with the amazing chained bottom part was made by [sYs]. You can have many different colors but since I am a black addicted – I went for black 😉

The awesome face decoration I found at Zibska. I adore her for her special sense of art. In every of her designs you see, what a skilled artist she is. Her items are never boring mainstream and always when I use her creations for a style it adds so much character and attitude. The eye decoration I really had to get, when I saw it as it reminded me of seeing many different shades of one thing if you look through all those parts or the imagination of how many you can see in one thing only.

So even if I trashed my set today I hope you nevertheless had fun with my look 😉

I can, therefore I am!

I already admitted, that I am a boots addicted, especially when it comes to overknee, thigh-high boots 😉

So it was a given, when I saw the “Monza” boots from [Gos], I had to make pictures with them!

[Gos] – “Monza” – Boutique HUD

This thigh high, stiletto-heeled boot features slouched leather, cinched with a wide buckled belt at the top.

The Monza Belted Boots are available in 2 colour HUDs – Boutique and Blueberry. The Boutique HUD includes 16 current, in-season colors perfect for any fashionista and the Blueberry HUD includes 20 colors which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry. Each HUD also includes 5 sole and 3 metal options.

The purchase includes sizes for Lara, Isis, Hourglass, Physique (high foot).

With the 2 closeups I at least wanted to try to capture the amazing color pallet that comes with the “Monza” boots.

[Gos] – “Monza” – Blueberry HUD

For the outfit, I chose one of the latest releases from [sYs]. The “Amirale” coatdress is a perfect outfit for the actual season, plus it really does make a statement. You can style it in many different ways from casual to heavy and industrial like I did it for this post. I loved how both designs, the boots and the outfit are made with materials enabled and reacted amazing to all the light sources around me. You get 4 different colors to choose from, but since I am a black addicted, I certainly had to use black and with the red collar and front button line 😉

The “Amirale” coatdress is available at The Project Se7en in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody and TMP.

Last Day before Christmas…

Again we only have one day left for Christmas. In Germany we celebrate Christmas on the 24th, in my family usually in the afternoon or evening. It never was a huge party we we only have the closest family around. This year it will be my mom, my brother and his girl friend, Red and myself.

Usually the last day before Christmas was very hectic, as I never made it to have all Christmas presents together in time 😉 This year I am all set and done \o/

So all I have left is preparing the apartment and do some Christmas tree decorating. It is a great feeling if you have everything ready and just can relax and enjoy the pre-Christmas feeling 😉

You can make your self a nice cocoa or – what I like even more – a nice ‘Glühwein’. It was really a wonderful day today and that brought me on today’s pictures and post.

First I only wanted to do a shoe post about the amazing “Kendall” ankle boots from [Gos]. The Kendall boot is a peep-toe leather biker ankle boot. Accented by double buckles and exposed zipper detail, Kendall is sure to add flair.
Kendall is available in 3 colour HUDs – Boutique, Blueberry, and Metallics – each sold separately. The Boutique HUD includes 14 current, in-season colors perfect for any fashionista, the Blueberry HUD includes 21 colors which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry, and the Metallics HUD include 6 metallics which will have your feet shining. Each HUD also includes 5 sole, 3 metal, 7 lining, and 2 heel options.

Based on the shoes I wanted to do a winter, cozy look and I just took the awesome “Lila Sweater” from .:Avanti:. and an older gacha hair, that I never used as I never found the right style for it. To not have bare legs with my denim shorts, I wanted some tights and remembered the cool socks/tights combination I got a few weeks ago, which even had a toe-less option – perfect for the peep-toe boots!

While I was playing with poses and some decorations… my sweet little niece India showed up and we all know how kids can be… curious especially one day before Christmas. She sat down with her little Rudolph cuddly toy and wanted some hot chocolate. She had a lot to tell from Kindergarten and about Christmas and certainly she asked me all those questions about Santa. she did not forget to mention that she hopes Santa got her wish-list in time this year and when I would think that he will come. I told her that we still need to get the cookies out the fridge later and make a little plate for Santa with them. I should not have mentioned the cookies I guess since India is the biggest cookie monster I ever met :p I had a hard time to tell her we cannot eat the cookies for Santa and that she better keeps her hands off them and that they are only belong to Santa and how important it would be to give them to him.

Finally I made it, to get her into her bed and after a little bedtime story she closed her eyes and fell asleep with a smile on her face. I closed the book and turned the lights off before I left the room and went back down to continue decorating and drinking the last few sips of my ‘Glühwein’ before I got sleepy myself and went to bed.

If you want to see India’s little over nightsecret… just take a look at her cute story 😉 https://indiaamari.wordpress.com/2017/12/23/its-almost-christmas/

I wish all of you Merry Christmas and hope you can enjoy the next days with your family and friends as much as I will 🙂

Vintage fun with [Gos]

[Gos] having their debut at UBER with a wonderful and sexy peep toe – “Bianca”!

“Zip into Bianca, an alluring variation of the classic peeptoe platform pump. Bianca features a high stiletto heel embellished by a zipper with circular pull. You will be spoilt for choice with Bianca’s 55 colour options.” , [Gos] describe their amazing new release. And I really have to agree. I was not able to snap 55 colors without photo bombing you all but I at least wanted to show some colors beside the black ones I used for the pictures 😉

[Gos] – “Bianca” Boutique HUD

Like we know it for all the new releases of [Gos], “Bianca” includes 3 colour HUDs – Boutique, Blueberry, and Metallics. The Boutique HUD includes 21 current, in-season colours perfect for any fashionista, the Blueberry HUD includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry, and the Metallics HUD include 6 metallics which will have your feet shining. Each HUD also includes 5 sole, 2 metal, and 3 lining options.

 

[Gos] – “Bianca” Metallics HUD

“Bianca” includes fits for Maitreya Lara, Belleza and Slink High feet.

 

When I unpacked my new “Bianca” heels I instantly had an idea, how I wanted them to style. The peep toe did shout ‘pin up’ at me but the cool zipper at the back of the heel said ‘no way you will wear those with a cute dress!’

I wanted to dome rockabilly like style with a cool vintage car at a gas station… and there they were again… the problems if you have something particular in mind and no idea where you find your accessories, clothes or the location.

Ok the look first. To give the heels enough room and to fit the style idea I need some 3/4 long pants – preferred used blue jeans with a tight fit. I do have a ton of jeans, but believe it or not either they are loose fit, bell-bottom style or long down to the ground *grumbles*

The search for that special type of jeans made  me work through all my denim/jeans pants and I was able to decrease my inventory numbers significantly *snickers*. It is really funny how much stuff yo find if you dig deep enough in your inventory :p

There they are! My “Ronee Boyfriend Jeans from GizzA. Recently GizzA got re-branded to Giz Seorn and I have to post some of her amazing new releases soon, but some things you simply can’t let go 😉 Next I first thought for a white shirt, or maybe a white cool sporty blouse but I did not find the right one and so i changed my mind and thought even more towards the cool kids rockabilly side 😉 Yes, that looked so much better when I tried the “Kara Vest” from DE Designs. Now I just missed some typical cat eye shaped vintage glasses and since I wanted to go for a gas station for my pictures maybe some fingerless gloves, just in case I want to so some car mechanic pics 😉

While I was looking for gas stations, I remembered a little retro looking one at Netherwood. So I just had to rez the cute vintage pickup from Wetcat and ready to shoot! The “Shelby” pickup has some inbuilt poses, but I just used the one on the first picture. for the other pictures I played around with poses from Foxity and ALIUD. I do not know why but vintage or even more Rockabilly shoots always are fun as I love listen to that kind of music while I shoot and edit my pictures to get in to the right mood 😉

Speaking of… I would like to close todays post with some lyrics, that I just heard, while I was typing and which belong to one of my favourite rockabilly songs… the little bass guitar solo in there was one of the first I learned when I started to play bass :p

Stray cat strut, I’m a ladies cat
I’m a feline Casanova, hey man that’s that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

Don’t go crossing my path

“Dark Swan” or “Do we ever have enough pumps?”

Today I am very happy to showcase the amazing new “Cassie” pumps from [Gos]. Who can say no to such an amazing sexy, pointed toe pump with that kind of high blade heel? We all know women can never have enough heels so lets take a look on the newest release from [Gos] for November round of FaMESHed.

[Gos] always was one of my favourite designers in SL and for this month they have some really exciting changes and news. The HUDs have been updated and from now on you do not have any words in a menu, you get a HUD that has little colored squares and so you just have to click on those to customize your shoe to your style and favor.

Cassie – Boutique HUD (includes 18 current, in-season colours & 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options perfect for any fashionista)

With the new “Cassie” pumps you have 3 different HUDs available in your pack. The Boutique, the Blueberry and the Metallics HUD. The Blueberry HUD will be a new addition for future releases, so you can coordinate your amazing Blueberry clothing perfect with your incredible [Gos] shoes 🙂

Cassie – Blueberry HUD (includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry plus 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options)

Each HUD has a different number of colors on it as well as options for the sole, metals and lining. I only snapped a few colors to still make the full beauty of the show visible but as you can see there is a wide color range and you won’t hardly find any color where you cannot find a match in your “Cassie” HUDs.

Cassie – Metallics HUD (includes 10 metallics & 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options which will have your feet shining)

The “Cassie” pumps are made for MaitreyaLara, Belleza and Slink high feet. And now the unbelievable… That full pack is available at FaMESHed for only 495 L$. That is a steal of a deal!

Now I would just take a closer look on the rest of my look for today. To not over accessorize the shoes I decided to go for some body tight clothing. the lingerie I got longer ago from Apple May.  I loved the high-waisted panties and the look of the completely covering bra. The “Tigress” set are 2 appliers, which can be used on Slink and omega compatible bodies. For the harness I found the cool “Black Bird” harness from PurpleMoon. It just perfectly went with my lingerie and I loved the little wings in the back. To pimp the bra a little bit I added the “Skeleton Clamps” from Salt & Pepper which are a hunt gift for the ‘Once upon a Nightmare’ hunt. They are meant to be worn without any bra but I loved the look so much on it 😉 The more I styled the more a dark swan grew in my head.

But I do not wanna bore with more text as I know you probably already trying to TP to FaMESHed to grab your “Cassie” pumps and I will put all the style details with LMs anyways below the last picture as always 😉

LOTD 07/29/2016 – Lazy Afternoon

sys 4

Today I have again a post that fell together just by trying things 😉

Sometimes that is the best way to create looks – unplanned looks I just love it :p

sys 5

First I put on the “Sensa Tank Dress” and immediately fell in love with those huge buckle in the back and the amazing counter parts at the front. Usually this is meant to be a dress but I could not resist to play with it to see what I can come up with :p

After I tried various pants, shorts and skirts, I got stuck on the “Hunter Pants” from Pixicat. With the laced sides and the great sand color, they looked perfect to the “Sensa Tank Dress”. With the pants and the top the whole look took a more heavy casual look and so I added one of my favourite shoes to the outfit – the “Triumph Boots” from [GOS].

sys 3

 The cool arm straps are part of the “In Flames” outfit from Asteria. With the huge buckles they matches so nice to the top with the buckle in the back 😉

Since I am really a short hair cut lover I could not pass the “No.Meaning” hairstyle of the actual round of On9 (July.. today is the last day you can find it there I guess) made by no.match.

sys 7

Now I needed a location to shoot. With this look I felt, that a inworld location would look better than an editorial shot in my studio. My first way lead me to one of the amazing Neva sims. I am sure you all know about those as they are the most awesome sims for photo shoots 😉 If not you really should make your way to one of them. This time it was the Neva River Village. A wonderful sim with a lot of water, bridges and paths and a wonderful urban but modern and trendy look. I love the colors and tones and how everything works together so well for all of the Neva sims anyways what theme they have.

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 😉

The back of the “Emma” dress holds a very sexy secret as well 😉 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 the  3 different colors and I chose the ‘Dark’ version for this post.

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

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Our first rigged, original Clothing Piece!

Zoomy Vest close

Today I have a very special reason for my post… a very special vest for a very special friend!

Many of you might know we are doing original mesh accessories for quite some time now but we never had a rigged clothing part yet… until now 🙂

I am very happy that I can announce we are now able to even make rigged original clothing!

What makes it even more special for me is that our first design was made for a very special Lady!

Zoomy Bluebird, our reigning Miss CoC 2015.

And even that contest is the reason for our new “Zoomy Vest”.

It was not even long time planned, that we make something for Zoomy. We were working on the national costume for Miss SL Poland 2015 (yes, that one will be showcased soon too I just need to finish the pics :p) when Zoomy was in my IMs and told me she was searching for a cropped vest for one of her finale stylings. She said she looked already for quite some time and could not find what she wanted or the vest was not cooperating with the rest of her styling. The more we talked the more I got an idea, but I did not dare to ask her about as I did not wanna bother or obrude her too  much. Then she all of sudden said she never would dare to ask me to make one, as she would know I would be busy with the gown anyways. You cannot imagine my smile in that moment… Zoomy was always a very dear friend to me over time, a crazy sister in mind and someone who always understood my weirdness. So you can imagine which honor it would be to create a piece for such an amazing woman!

So I told her that I would LOVE to design something for her, but that I have to ask Veo and Red as well. We are a team in creating and already were working on other designs so I could not decide that on my own. I was very nervous what Veo would say about it though.

Next day as soon as I saw him, I jumped on him, making super puppy eyes and told him about the idea for Zoomy’s cropped vest. I scribbled my idea on a piece of paper and showed him and he just nodded and said “Oh yeah we can do that”.

 You can imagine, it did not too even one second to jump back in Zoomy’s IM and tell her the good news.

With her special style, the vest had to be in a certain look to mactch the rest of the styling.

So while i was finishing the gown for JJ, Veo worked on the vest and not too much later I got my favourite IM from him that said “I guess I am done!”

When he uploaded it and showed it to me I had goosebumps… that was exactly what I had in mind and it was fully rigged and everything!

The “ZoomyVest” was born!

I grabbed it and immediately went to Photoshop to make the textures. Like you can see the styling was extremely colorful and wild so the vest had to match in there. I made 3 different textures and as it ould have been fate one even was close to the pants, which I never saw before 😉

Besides the 3 colors for Zoomy I already made some more, because I totally fell in love with that vest :p.

So we just had to get Zoomy to kinda custom tailor the vest onto her body with the dress under it, that again was a huge fun time when we were all standing on the platform and uploaded a bunch of different sizes until we had got it right ;). Somehow it felt like a real fitting for a super model*giggles*

 It was a very special moment for me and as well for us all at Wicca’s Wardrobe. When Zoomy then, a few days later even won the Miss CoC 2015, you can imagine how much we were excited and happy.

And now I am even more happy, that I may announce that the “Zoomy Vest” now is in store in 8 different textures to match as many different looks s you can imagine from casual to steampunk and even to the zoomylishious new style trend KAWA Couture!
