“Burtonesque”

I sense there’s something in the wind, that feels like tragedy’s at hand.

And though I’d like to stand by him, can’t shake this feeling that we have.

The worst is just around the bend.

And does he notice my feelings for him?

And will he see how much he means to me?

I think it’s not to be.

[Sally, Nightmare before Christmas]

That I am a Tim Burton lover is not a secret. I love the movies and I as well love t he architecture and the clothing that is used in all of the movies. Anyways if Nightmare before Christmas, Corpse Bride or Beetlejuice ( and so many others certainly) – I am an addicted and saw them all more than once ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love the dark humor and the way how Tim Burton expresses things in his movies.

When I saw the “Elvina” outfit from .AiShA., I instantly had a ‘Buronesque’ idea in mind.

The striped leggings immediately pulled the “Burton” trigger in me :p

When I was looking for some furniture for my set, I just typed ‘Burton’ in my inventory search and had a lot of things coming up, that I already forgot that I have them!

I played around with the “Inspired by Burton” set from 22769 and completed the set with a bookshelf from Toiz and some parts of the “Burton Tea Party” from Cheeky Pea. I liked the shelf with the books falling out so much for the whole scene ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was really hard to choose from all the snaps I had – I had so much fun playing with the set and all of my Poseidon poses ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lady in Red? Featuring Azul & EMO-tions

Azul 1red

Lady in Red

I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
Looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you’re wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind

Azul 2

Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, it’s where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I’ll never forget, the way you look tonight

I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I’ve never seen so many people wanna be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

Azul 3

Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, it’s where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I’ll never forget, the way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight

The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)

LOTD 06/13/2016 – Dandy Chic with Asteria, EMO-tions, Tracei & Glamistry

Today I have an extraordinary outfit to showcase… The new “Willow” outfit from Asteria.

What caught my eyes was the wonderful asymmetric look of the whole outfit.

The outfit contains The shorts, the bustier and the amazing shirt. The bustier and the shorts are not just simple, black basics. The are designed in a very seductive way with all the straps and ‘holes’ that show a lot of skin. The cool shirt is buttoned in the front and lays smart on one shoulder only.

To accessorize the outfit I chose to go with the amazing “Xanthe Set” from Tracei together with his amazing “Ira White Ring”, both in white.

This amazing jewelry is such a chameleon! It works for so many different styles and looks and as well can turn the basic looks into something totally different.

I wanted to add some more chic to my look and the “Xanthe Set” was just perfect for that. with the shite gemstones and the delicate and sophisticated golden metals, it was the perfect addition to the look. The “Ira Ring” was the exact little piece that I was missing for my today’s look. It perfectly matched the “Xanthe Set” with the white color and the filigree golden metal decorations.

For the hair, I was thinking a lot what I would like to wear. First I tried a few more elegant looking styles – some updos –ย  but, it just did not look right… So I tried to think a totally different direction. I asked my best friend google – in such moments it really feels like a rescue :p – about some things and all of a sudden there popped up some female dandy looking styles and the idea of a hat was born!

And as if it would have been fate, I just got the amazing “Kiki” hair from EMO-tions. The hair looks similar to the “Kristen” hairstyle, which I loved so much lately, but with that amazing hat on top… just genius and so perfect for what I was looking for.

Now with the new idea for the look, I needed some shoes that support that new twist on the outfit ๐Ÿ˜‰

I looked through my shoes and immediately got stuck with the “Edelweiss heels” from Glamistry. With their casual and at the same time elegant looking attire they totally were what I was looking for. The great HUD did let me choose the perfect colors to match the “Willow” outfit perfectly. The laces added a perfect casual tad and the elegant hells pulled it right back on the chic side.

Now I just had to find an idea for the scenery, to make the pictures. First I tried several sky boxes but all looked too busy and so I decided to go with something very simplistic. I just put out the “Black Cube Pouf” from 22769 and parts of a skybox from CD Homes for the wall decoration. Sometimes less is more I was taught ๐Ÿ˜‰

Can Latex and Vinyl be Fashion? – Yes they can!

sys 6

Sometimes you just sit there and stare at your inventory, not knowing what you wanna do… You just see a wall of things you wanna blog and you cannot make up your mind what you should do first. I usually start then first with some inventory sorting and cleaning, what I anyways do way to occasionally…

Sometimes you get lucky and find an inspiration while you are sorting, sometimes you just have to put on several things until feels like “DingDingDing” and you know exactly what you wanna do ๐Ÿ˜‰

sys 8

It wasnt that bad this time, as I did know I want to showcase one of the latest releases of [sys] from the Black Fair and the mega cool Elephant seat from 22769 from the actual We <3 RP event.

ย Now, the big question was how to bring those 2 together in a cool way, as I wanted to combine the latex look of the “Hellia” dress with the light shining texture of the “Elephant Loveseat”.

When I looked through my inventory to see what more I could use for my scenery, I came across the “Chameleon Bag” from Boutique #187, which i just put on the sofa, as I did not yet know what kind of poses I wanna use. Furthermore I found a shelf, that I got last year at the On9 event from six o’clock and some wall art from 22769.

The scenery became more and more monochrome and modern and so I decided to wear the “Overcast” hat from LODE to my styling. It is a long time favourite of mine and while I was fooling around with several poses more and more the idea of the huge hat did grow in my head. Last but not least I added the wrist cuffs of our new “Cathbad Set”, which we made with Wicca’s Wardrobe for the actual round of The Secret affair and some sheer tights from Izzie’s, to feature the gold parts of the “Hellia” outfit a little bit more.

To finish my look I certainly HAD to use my new “Nemesia” angle boots from Glamistry. Since I saw that boots the first time I fell in love with them. I know they are not the newest release from Glamistry but they are one of my personal favorites! They are so versatile! Depending on the color and color combinations they can feature every style from casual to elegant. Today certainly I had to go for black & gold to match the actual look (not to mention that black is my favourite colors anyways :p )

Overall this look might be another example, that latex can be fashionable even if so many still sort it only in the wrong corner… even some of the most popular designers used latex and vinyl for their creations and put it on the runways of our world ๐Ÿ˜‰

GizzA teams up with Glamisty for Peony!

Gizza & Glamistry 6

A collaboration between designers is always exciting to me, as it brings out new and different sides of each of them or even pairs their best skills and abilities.

The last fact happened in my view on the latest collaboration ofย  GizzA & Glamisty.

Both designers have amazing skills when it comes to designing and texturing. The “Peony” outfit and heels show how incredible amazing such a collaboration can be. The outfit – made by GizzA – itself comes in several colors. Originally there is one color for top and pants but I decided to mix 2 of them together since I anyways have a weakness for black and red combinations ๐Ÿ˜‰

Gizza & Glamistry 4

The top is a very summer looking top with a great leather texture. I the front you have high closed tight shape, which closes together right at the neck.ย  That leaves a very sexy back with much skin and only covered by 3 lines, that close around the front again, which hold the top in place ๐Ÿ˜‰

The pants do have an amazing, aerial floating back piece to them. The sheer part is perfectly rigged to the legs and will follow your legs with every step. The “Peony” pants are 3/4 pants (or sometimes called capri pants) and let enough room for the amazing “Peony” heels from Glamistry.

Gizza & Glamistry 1

Glamistry is one of the most popular shoe designers these days. And if you take a look at their designs you will know why ๐Ÿ˜‰

I rarely saw shoes, that are so detailed and realistic, as the Glamistry ones. They always release up to date creations and offer an amazing color system for customers. Usually you buy one color but you are able to add more colors on your HUD by just buying another color. That means you do not buy another pair of shoes, you just add another color on your HUD. That is a very inventory friendly system to have a lot of colors for each shoe!

For the “Peony Heels”, Glamistry certainly made the perfect matching colors to the “Peony Outfit” from GizzA. You have the possibility to color several parts of the shoes in a different color. The shoes itself have 2 parts like you can see on the picture above, I colored them black and red. Then you are able as well to choose for metals, heels and sole, to make sure you have the best combination for your look. To me that makes those shoes very versatile and perfect for any kind of styling ๐Ÿ™‚

Gizza & Glamistry 2

The incredible tattoo was made by my favourite tattoo designer and friend, Julie Hastings. She made the “Charade” tatoo for the actual round of the Epiphany gacha event.

The cute hairstyle, together with the hat, comes from Ayashi and the amazing bracelet was made by Asteria for one of the past round of the Enchantment event, if I remember correctly.

Since I have an addiction to piercings as well and rarely can use them usually, I could not resist to add the little “Dark Queen Septum” ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cool walls you can see behind me, are from E.V.E. Studio. I used several copies and resized them to build a surrounding for my today’s pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 04/19/2016 – Weird Mood

GizzA-Elysium 1

Yesterday I was in a very weird mood, when I put together the look for my GizzA shift. It was not a bad nor a good mood… it was just weird.

Do you know that moments where you kinda feel nothing – real nothing? It is a very strange and good feeling the same time. Hard to explain but if you ever had that you will exactly know what I am talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰

In such moments it is very dangerous for me to style. As I never know what the outcome will be… will it be a great funky look or will I look like a clown…

That is, why I always let one day go by and look at it again t make sure it looks ok :p

GizzA-Elysium 6

I started with the new “Joanna Laced Dress” from GizzA. A short, cute and amazing short mesh dress, which comes in several colors and patterns. What I liked a lot, was that the dress was not just made with a deep neckline in the back, but had those laces as a neat decoration what made it outstanding to me already. I decided for the ‘Red Floral’ version for today’s post. I was thinking a long time, what I could do with it. I did not want to make a too casual and common spring look, as I saw that already a lot of times for this dress.

I was looking into my ‘Shoulder Parts’ folder and found the cool “Epaulette Set” as well made by GizzA. They are not a new release but more and more I discovered that ‘old time goodies’ are still worth to be kept for several stylings :p

GizzA-Elysium 2

ย The “Epaulette Set” comes with both shoulder pieces and an amazing mixture of chains and pearls as a necklace to connect both parts. I used the white version for today but there are many different colors available at the GizzA main store.

For arms and legs I wanted something not too heavy, but as well nothing too simple.

GizzA-Elysium 5

The “Lovana” heels from Stelloane just perfectly worked for what I was aiming for.

With the cute laces wrapped around the whole leg, it was not just pups or sandals but as well not heavy, totally covering boots ๐Ÿ˜‰

The arm pieces from the “Bonfire” outfit from Edelfabrik perfectly complimented the shows for the overall look.

I know I used the “Sidsel Hat” before, but I just love it so much, that I had to use it one more time ๐Ÿ˜‰ To me that added a light touch of an artist look as I saw many painter RP with such hats… I know weird thoughts but sometimes… like I said it in the beginning… I am in a strange mood anyways atm ๐Ÿ™‚

PurpleMoon makes me wear pink!

PurpleMoon 8 starterWhen I got the amazing Cameron Outfit and saw the huge color HUD, I went through all colors… and I really could not resist to wear the pink. So I took my medicals and put it back on :p

PurpleMoon 3

ย The “Cameron Dress” is an amazing asymmetric dress with a sexy, high slit on the left leg. The sleeves are not the usual short ones and no long ones either. They just go down a little over the elbow ๐Ÿ˜‰

The dress for each color is parted in 2 halfs, what makes the whole ensemble very interesting and as well different. With the sharp folds and wrinkles it becomes an awesome realistic look.

PurpleMoon 6

As well part of the outfit is the incredible hat. Hats to me are something very special. I am a hat/headpiece addicted anyways and hats always add some kind of class and chic to every look. There is a reason why many classy celebrities and popular people wearing hats or some kind of head wear for the more classy events.

AS well all the rich and beautiful people who spent their free time on horseracing places like Ascot… you can see a lot of huge and extraordinary hats there ๐Ÿ˜‰

The hat of the “Cameron Dress” really reminded me on some of those ๐Ÿ˜‰

With the delicate lace and the wonderful ribbon that hat really makes a statement and pulls the whole look on the super elegant side.

PurpleMoon 2 shoes

To just not break that super elegant style I chose to wear the Titania Sandals as well from PurpleMoon. The shape just fit perfectly to the look and the color was matching dreamy to the pink shades of the dress.

PurpleMoon 5

For the scenery I used a few of the items that are available on the actual round of the On9 event. The “Pollen Table Lamp” I just used as a floor lamp together with the “Pollen Hanging Lamp” on the other side. Both are made by Di’Cor and available in 6 different colors at the event. The lights can be turned on and offย  by touch. The table lamp only has a LI of 2 and the hanging version only 6LI. With that low LI they are a perfect decoration even for a small room only ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cute and amazing steps were made by Serenity Style. There are 2 different versions available, one clean and one rusty. With all the love to the details those steps are a perfect decoration item for your home and as well a wonderful part of a scenery for photography.

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

The back of the “Emma” dress holds a very sexy secret as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 theย  3 different colors and I chose the ‘Dark’ version for this post.

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