Wicca’s Wardrobe @ The Dark Style Fair 2017

This round of The Dark Style Fair is appropriately themed “Day of the Dead.”
For this special occasion we have created a 100% original mesh ensemble we call Catrina. It is a coat/dress combination that can be worn independent of one another. Of course we have an amazing HUD that gives you many options for textures as well as metals. Catrina is a versatile outfit that can work together or separately in a number of different genre stylings such as, Victorian or Steampunk. Catrina fits Maitreya’s Lara as well as Slink’s Physique and Hourglass.

It’s time for The Black Fair and as you would guess, EVERYTHING IS BLACK! We have a super sexy, super latex 100% original mesh creation we call Joan. It is made up of a alluring crop top, and curve hugging pencil skirt. We are offering Joan in in black of course, but with two variations of red included, and we also have our fatpack which of course has an impressive texture changing HUD so that you can have Joan in any color combination you like! Joan is made for Maitreya’s Lara, and Slink’s Physique and Hourglass.

But wait! THERE’S MORE! Our Joan gloves are BENTO! A definite must have!

Dark, Moody and Powerful – Halloween!

I did my first monthly subscription!

I never really thought about all those subscription boxes before but when DRD announced they will have a monthly subscription box, I could not resist… I had to have it. Even if I already got my second box this month, I still wanted to do a dark, moody post with the items of the first one in September ๐Ÿ˜‰

What I really do love about that box is, that you get one dark and one light version of all parts in the box. All the items from the September box I used for the decoration of today’s scenery – certainly the dark parts ๐Ÿ˜‰

Talking about DRD, when I was doing the Ironwood Hills hunt I saw many of those items, used as decoration on the sim! Speaking about the Ironwood Hills hunt… that was one of the best hunts I lately did. It is not a usual hunt where you just run around ike crazy and try to find certain items.. way not. It was a very well made one, which was entertaining and exciting the same time. I anyways love the Ironwood Hills sim and did many pictures there for blog posts and magazines, but with that hunt it gets even more interesting and you will find corners that you did not realize before!

When you land you have to click th one sign at the barn where you get your hunt HUD along with a flash light. I highly recommend to use the windlight settings of the sim to have the full experience and for that the flash light is very useful and adds to the whole fun ๐Ÿ™‚

The HUD itself already is an amazing idea. You get the impression of a cell phone where you constantly be in touch with the person that is asking you to do something. I do not want to tell yo too much of the story as it would take away all the surprise and you would not enjoy it as much. You have to find a person and the one who asks you to, provides you constantly hints and ideas where you could look for your next step. I really enjoyed that whole story behind that hunt. You have several steps to go and only one was a bit harder to find but all the others where not baby easy but doable if you really read the storyline and hints. When you complete all the tasks you will be able to TP via the home sign on your cellphone HUD to the little market where all the amazing sponsors have set out little gifts for you. It was over 20 amazing gifts from SL’s best designers.

Since I found out lately about inworld games in SL and tried several ones like Madpea or even the ones I found at the Linden Labs Portal location for games, the Ironwood Hills hunt was the one I enjoyed most. I was highly disappointed from the Madpea one, after it was hyped so much when the game “Seven” came out, that I lost some motivation to do such things again. But the Ironwood Hills hunt gave it back to me ๐Ÿ™‚ The Ironwood Hills hunt is free to play, with amazing NPC characters that interact with you, so well scripted and you even get 24 amazing high quality gifts in the end!!!

I highly recommend the Ironwood Hills hunt to you if you love spooky, creepy, story based and exciting things ๐Ÿ˜‰ The hunt is on from October 1st until November 5th 2017.

Now I would like to drag your view closer on my outfit for today’s post. The incredible “Blood Lust” gacha from Salt & Pepper. Originally the gacha was released for the Arcade event but you now can find it at he Salt & Pepper main store. The whole set contains 3 rares (collar, corset & garters, boots) and 20 commons (sleeves & skirts).

Anyways if rares or commons you always get a clean and a bloody version for each color. While the rares come with full color HUDs too, the commons are all on one color with their 2 versions, that I just explained.

Could you imagine a better outfit that the “Blood Lust” for Halloween? Sexy and dark immortal fantasies ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am totally in love and enjoying the dark season a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

Dark Visions

Dark Visions

There’s something hidden
In the depthsof the night
From a placenot forbidden
But deprived of light
A landscape of mistery
Is the other side
Derying the limits
Of the mind

Dark Visions
Fragment of a story that’s not a lie
Dark vision
Image of an existence destinedto die
Dark visions

A raid into the unknown
Enigmatic strangeland
Where the incognito’s grown
Harder to understand
The faceof silence
The likehood of fear
A reflex that will slowly
Disappear

Nightmares and dreams
Fictions or realities
Dark Visions

Today I have an awesome gacha outfit from Salt & Pepper for you. The “Like a Prayer” gacha is available at the actual round of ROMP.

The gacha comes with so many different itmes and colors, I really had a hard time choosing the parts and colors for today’s look.

Usually a nun seems something well behaved and shiny, so I wanted to drag it over to something dark, since I am on a dark and scary mood at the moment*giggles*

I love how the habit moves with the poses and animations and with all the options you really can create looks from totally nice and proper to something uber sexy if you only use the harness for the body…

For the set, what else I could use as the “Abandoned Asylum” gacha from 22769. I do LOVE their creativity and love for the detail in all of their items. The gacha comes with so many different furniture and deco parts.. you can just decorate away with all of them and since they are usually modifiable, you can even reuse them in different sizes! The amazing spooky mannequins as well are a gacha but from Remarkable Oblivion. That was the most funniest gacha play I ever had. When I saw those mannequins on the Ironwood Hills sim, I instantly knew – I want them! So I went to the event where they were and was doing a happy dance when I saw they are all common items. Usually I am not a lucky person with gachas, that is one of the reasons I stopped playing most of the time. So I started to gamble aways after setting myself a limit and the first 3 pulls already all were 3 rares and I was like “What the hell??? Once I seriously want the commons – really???” No that I did not like the rares, they are amazing, but… seriously?!? – Just on a side note, I never ever was that lucky at any other gacha*laughs*

Thank god I found the missing mannequins for a reasonable price on marketplace, to complete my Spook Show :p

I do not wanna forget to mention, that all the amazing poses I used are from Poseidon.

I still have so many poses and props he made, that I would love to showcase, but that crazy genius guy seems to be on a release flood! Just kidding but it is really hard to follow up with the speed of his releases.. I sometimes really wonder if he ever sleeps*grins* But for this post they were just perfect again. Using his poses seems to me like getting a picture alive. They are so very well thought trough from the fingernails down to the toenails every limb does exactly what it has to, to create the perfect illusion of a movement in just one pose!

It was really great fun to do those pictures and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank God it’s Friday!

I really do love my jobs but I am always happy when it is Friday and I can escape from my during the week routine ๐Ÿ˜‰

As much fun and joy my RL work is as much I enjoy the silence on the weekends – I am one of the happy people who only work from Monday to Thursday (more than 10 hours a day) t have free on Friday (if I do not have gigs with my band).

And I really enjoy those 3 days of total freedom and laziness ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I was in a little punky mood and the “Elemia” dress from [sys] was just the perfect item to start styling ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I am not a huge fan of bare legs – especially if the weather is not cooperating – I added some ripped jeans under the dress.

The cool sneakers I found at the Shoetopia and when I wanted to go back and get them… it was closed! Thank god I had not to wait too long until I found them in the KC main store.

When I was looking for a location, I wanted something casual, but as much as I tried to find a nice casual city or street, I did not find any… I really miss the old Mayfair sim where they had built a wonderful city with some stores and all those nice corners where you could do cool pics. The whole sim was mainly in white and light tones and not that dark as all the ones I found when I was looking today. Are there none regular and modern/mesh built city sims for just some easy casual posts? Maybe I am just too blonde to find them :p

Anyways, for the pictures I finally went to Woodbury Falls, as I did remember a car mechanics building there which I saw fit for today’s style.

Dark Victorian Princess for VERSUS Magazine

versus-magazine-dark-victorian-princess-look-02

Look 1

Read the VERSUS Magazine HERE

When Shena assigned me the trend for the current issue of the VERSUS magazine I was super happy. She said my trend would be ‘Dark Victorian Princess – but in an up-to-date look’ and she totally hit my heart with that ๐Ÿ™‚

I always had an addiction to dark stylings… black always will be my favourite color ๐Ÿ˜‰

The victorian princess merged into a more modern looking way was something quit interesting and as well challenging. My first step led me again to Google and I looked for Neo Baroque and New Baroque looks as well as for modern Victorian stylings.

versus-magazine-dark-victorian-princess-look-01

Look 2

I never tried to copy looks I found… more to find my own way of the styles I saw. When I look for a certain style, I try to find as many looks as possible to get the essence of the looks. To me styling a certain trend, theme or category does not mean to copy an existing look of a picture I found. I saw that so many times for challenges, contests or castings – People just open Google and get one of the first 10 pictures they see and try to find exactly that look in SecondLife. To me that is NOT really ‘styling’, it is just copying an existing look without any personal traits or edges, even if it can be a challenge to find all those items :p .

versus-magazine-dark-victorian-princess-look-04

Look 3

Copying looks to me never was fun and thank god I did not have to do that too often. But styling an assigned trend or style is the most fun challenge I can imagine, when I can try to put my own twist to something, but still cover a certain look. When you can bring something alive, that tells a general story about a look but as well a story about yourself… I do not know if that makes any sense but it is what I feel when I do those kind of stylings.

Thank you Shena, that I was again allowed to be part of your amazing VERSUS magazine. I always love the assignments you are giving to me, because you always think about, what would be fun for me or what would suit me. It is always an honor and pleasure to work with you and for you <3
