Phoenix – A Modern, Steampunk Interpretation

phoenix-1

Sometimes the mind takes off and you just go with the flow…

That happened again after I got the amazing “Lavi” makeup from Slackgirl. I wanted to do something special as the makeup itself looked very different to me.

First I tried something simple, as I wanted the makeup to pop out, but what ever I tried, it never did satisfaction to the makeup to my feeling.

That usually is the point when I put things to the side and wait until the creative muse kisses me with the right idea. But for what ever reason I could not do it this time without again and again thinking about it.

With the amazing shine of the makeup, I came across the idea to use the wonderful “Asgard Wings” from E.V.E Studio, that come with the matching head wing parts. So I slowly got a basic idea for what would like to go for. Wearing the cool head wing parts I had to find some hair, that go well with them without hiding too much or looking too funky. The ” Tommy” hair is the perfect choice to match my vision, which grows more and more in my mind πŸ˜‰

With the beautiful detailed top from the “Scarlett” lingerie – made by Salt & Pepper – I had the arms free for the awesome “Elowen” arm pieces from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The shorts with the cool garter straps come from Asteria and are named “Mady”.

With the cool “Lavi” makeup and the “Asgard” accessories the vision of an steampunk Phoenix was born in my head… I can’t tell you why but it just got tsuck in my mind :p

For the set, which I built at my studio I used the incredible “Propelling Gears” together with the “Rosina’s Undergeound” and the “Eye of the Storm” made the perfect ambience for what I was looking for πŸ™‚

Now.. simple runway poses would not do justice to the Phoenix idea. I was trying quite a few but nothing really would work with my idea and finally Gryphon Vendetta, creator of Poseidon poses saved my life. I ran into Poseidon via Gryphons amazing flickr stream and his incredible pictures. I totally love them and drooled more than once over his pictures πŸ˜‰

He does very dramatic and expressive poses which are perfect for exciting pictures and moods. I rarely saw such motion looking poses, which still look human and not distorted for the limbs. It looks like that he has poses for every occasion you can think about whether it is weapons, running scenes or flying moments. Sometimes he even has props coming with them like the one I used for the dark bloody nurse post not too long ago (http://wiccamerlin.de/something-evils-lurkinin-the-dark/).

I really got kinda an addiction for Poseidon poses since I tried them first and with all those possibilities he offers, I guess that will not be the last post I used them :p (I spied a Harley Quinn set too and I LOVE Harley Quinn*grins evil*)

But for now I hope you enjoyed my person vision of a modern steampunk Phoenix πŸ˜‰

Explode!

eveformanails-01

There’s something I should get off my chest
I’m losing my mind and my life’s a mess.
Well everyone says do this and do that
Maybe they’re right
I feel like I’m gonna…….
EXPLODE.. I’M GONNA EXPLODE
It is so big yet I feel so small
It’s even in your shopping mall
Is my life wasting away
Don’t throw it away that’s what they say
I don’t wanna go out and fail
Yet I fail at home every day
I wonder someday if I’ll look back
With regrets on how I lived
Each way I turn I turn my back
Each time I turn I always look back
I’m trying to please everyone I don’t know how
I feel like I’m gonna…….
EXPLODE.. I’M GONNA EXPLODE

eveformanails-02
What should I do I really don’t know
Should I stay home or should I go
Well I’m struggling with my sanity
Is my life crumbling in front of me.
Oh.
Do you know how it feels?
To feel like you’re gonna explode
Do you ever feel
Like you’re gonna explode.
EXPLODE.

LOTD 10/18/2014 – Featuring LeeZu & PurpleMoon

LeeZu PurpleMoon 03

Lately I am a lot on to colored stylings… maybe that’s the autumn vibe πŸ˜‰ So before the dark Halloween days start I use my colored moods a bit more πŸ˜‰

Today I would like to showcase one of the newest releases from LeeZu together with the amazing new “Croco Boots”, that PurpleMoon released for the Instruments event.

The “Li-Belle” outfit is an ensemble of hotpants jacket and top. All of them are available in various color combinations so you will find your favorite one at the LeeZu Mainstore. The super sexy hotpants are made with some very aerial fabric and it nearly looks like as the short pant sleeves would move with every wind breeze ;). The jacket again is a little master piece of LeeZu again. The long sleeves are open at the outsides. A perfect look for the last sunny moments in the autumn season. Both, the hotpants and the jacket are mesh made and only the top comes in a layer version to fit perfectly under the jacket.

The boots are again the “Croco Boots” from PurpleMoon.. I know I already showcased them, but they are so amazing, that I had to wear them again in another color ;). You will find the boots at the Instruments event till the end of October.

The amazing earrings are made by Chop Zuey and with the golden metals and the possibility to recolor the gems to match the look the “Don’t call me Betty” earrings were the perfect choice.

With the glasses from Crie Style and one of my favourite hair styles from EMO-tions I felt ready for a sweet afternoon walk over the grid, where I found this amazing little garden house wich was part of the last Collabor 88. Perfect scenery for a perfect autumn look πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Dark Fashion

Lately I was looking through my wardrobe again not sure what I wanted to wear. I was in a dark, straight and lightly monochrome mood…

I remembered of a jacket from LeLutka Ultra that I was not wearing for a longer time. After some searching way back in my closet I found it my black “Prison” jacket. Right beside I saw the top of the “Emperatriz” with that wonderful transparent texture and the “Lazos” corset also in black, both also from the LeLutka Ultra line. As I was looking in the mirror I asked my self if I am in a skirt or pants mood… there I saw my LeeZu “Zelma” hotpants and remembered a great leggings from Eshi Otawara that were part of the “Black Gems are Forever” outfit – perfect!

For the shoes I chose one of the new Mea Culpa ankle boots called “Rapture”. Those great black and white textured boots with that great spiky heels are the perfect addition for that outfit…

Finally I got on my black Ticky Tacky “Lick me” earrings and the black Mandala “Takara” nails with rings.

I looked again into the mirror watching myself and yes that was how I felt today πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Gothic Girl for a day :)

Today I was in a very good mood and I remembered my past goth times and I thought about to style myself kinda that just for fun πŸ˜‰

I took out my LeeZu ” Cat Tighs in black” as a basic for the LeeZu “Zelma Hotpants” also in black. I so love that “hole ” look πŸ˜‰ As i love the LeeZu “LaGoa” top soΒ  much I took it for the base under the Baiastice “Revolver short jacket” in dark night. As I like the extravagant things what could match this outfit better than the Stiletto Moody “Lucille” ankle boots in black. For the hair I decided to use one of the new Tunkinowaguma hair called “Helena” in black with silver accessories.

The amazing makeup and for sure also the stunning skin was made by Nuuna Skins, and the great 80’s earrings you can find at Tick Tacky πŸ™‚

I hope you had fun with my little “back to my goth times journey”

Stay styled… πŸ˜‰

Darkside? Did you ever think about, who does the Midnight Modelshift at Angel Dessous???

Did you ever think about who has the midnight shift for modeling at Angel Dessous? πŸ˜‰ These lovely ladies show of the dark side of Nando Korobases designs πŸ˜‰

First we have the “Cody”. A very sexy outfit that you can wear in different combinations to have different looks to show.

You can wear it with a jacket that makes the whole outfit a daily outfit or one for a very hot disco night πŸ˜‰ If you take off the jacket you have an amazing bra that looks very very sexy. You can choose if you wanna wear the great net body stocking or go without. The body stocking covers the legs and the lower body till the bra, and the net gloves match dreamily to this version. The fish net stockings are made with an amazing upper seam that has a fantastic buckle painted on it. If you decide only to wear lingerie you can just wear the bra and the panties without jacket and body stocking and you are the vamp of the night for your love πŸ˜‰Β  Also included to this great outfit are the belt and the great bracelets that match perfect to the whole outfit!

Up next we have a beautiful lingerie named “Rianna”. A seductive body that is closed by thin crisscross lines in the front with a high leg shaped panty. For this outfit you can choose 2 different versions of stockings. One as usual with straight seams on the top and another one with higher outsides and longer stockings. The sweet tattoo for chest or pelvis is included also, both as an underwear layer.

Our next outfit is called “Vanessa” and shows off a little more color than our first two black ones πŸ˜‰ Even if they are available in other colors also πŸ˜‰

This outfit is a multi talent. “Vanessa” can be worn as a daily casual outfit with the long pants and the little jacket that has amazing prim parts for the short upper sleeves. A bra covers the chest part and a cute belt accents the hips in a beautiful way. For spring you can wear that, for example for a nice shopping tour πŸ˜‰ You also can wear it as lingerie and for that you again have 2 different versions. One with a corset and one with just a bra. The stockings are connected to the panties with 4 amazing tiny garters. For this outfit we again have 2 amazing tattoo layer versions as an additional option. The whole outfit is made in 20 pieces including all parts that you can see in the picture.

The last outfit for the short introduction of the darker side of Nando Korobase is also a truly chameleon of an outfit with lots of possibilities to mix and match it. “Carry” can be worn like seen in the first pic with the long skirt and the jacket that makes the imagination ofΒ  a long sexy coat even if the belly is free πŸ˜‰

If you take off the skirt you have a sexy gogo club outfit with seductive hot pants. The jacket and the hot pants make a very sexy outfit with all the amazing jewelry parts and attachments like the belt and the bracelets. The stockings are without any garter andΒ  made with a sexy net seam that’s held in place by crossed lines in the front. If you take off the jacket you will see the stunning bra that goes perfect with the hot pants also, The great black tribal tattoo is again included as a separate clothing layer. If you like it more sexy just drop the hot pants and you will see the lovely panties with a very high leg seam up to the hips that show off your dreamy, sexy, long, well-shaped legs πŸ™‚

So now you know the darker side of Angel Dessous also and i have to admit I had great fun doing that post… it shows off a totally different site of Angel Dessous and also shows the many skills that Nando Korobase has to create outfits in different styles!

I hope you enjoyed my short “midnight models shift” trip πŸ˜‰
