Spooky!

I love the night
I like it spooky
Werewolves and their bites
I like it spooky
Skeletons laughing at your fright
I like it spooky
A black witch in green light
I like it spooky

Silent Hill… inspired by a movie!

Asteria 3

Yes, I have an addiction to mystic, dark things, especially for abandoned asylums at night. The imagination has no boundaries with those 😉

This time I got the idea, when I saw the “Spook Show Mannequins” from Remarkable Oblivion. It was a gacha at an event, and when I saw them… I did instantly know.. I need those :p

I am not a huge gacha player but those I really wanted and since they were commons, I thought I could give it a try. Guess what… certainly if I do not play for the rares once.. I get some*facepalms*

But since they were nice as well it did not bother me too much *grins*. I am sure I can use them for another post as well.

Asteria 1

As soon as I was at home, I unpacked them and put them down in a random way and just looked at them. After some time, they spoke to me and I got a basic idea about what I would love to do.

Most of you know I love antithetical scenarios and pictures. And when I looked at those Mannequins, I got the idea to combine them with some sexy and colorful lingerie 😉

I decided to go with one of the newer releases from Asteria, the “Nika” lingerie. With the choice of different colors the deep red combined with some black accepts like the straps on the legs it was kinda a mix of different color sets 😉

More and more the basic idea did grow in my head… Maybe you saw the Silent Hill movie… the idea I had when I unpacked them kinda was inspired by a scene of that movie. The one with the blind creepy nurses, which are attracted by the light and react on noises – they have no eyes, no face and kinda being anonymous. When I built my set with the new Mannequins I had this in mind the whole time :p .

Asteria 2

The necklace I pulled out from another outfit of Asteria called “Capretto”. With the sharp edges and the funky shape it just was a perfect addition for jewelry in a dark and grungy way 😉

The shoes I got from Empire. I wanted something boots like but not as solid as boots and the “Bottlebrush” heels from Empire were just what I was looking for. With a pump style for the foot part and amazing lines up till over the knee. Boots but no boots! *snickers*

The cool horns I found on Marketplace. Made by CerberusXing ([CX]) – originally for a gacha – those horns are awesome detailed and somewhat special and unique in the way they come down in the front.

Now to come back to my originally idea of the blind nurses, I needed something for my head/face to get the idea of a blind kinda anonymous look. First I remembered a hood from !!XX!!. It is quite old, and I only used the lower part, but for the idea it worked perfectly 😉 For the upper part I just put a simple blindfold.

Asteria 6

Now just a coll set was missing. I stared at the Mannequins, which I just rezzed into my white studio. I remembered the movie scene and the abandoned asylum surgery room. To make sure, I just poked you tube about the nurse scenes of both movies :p

While I watched them, I thought of a gacha set from 22769, that just should be perfect. Now the difficult part… Since I did not recall the name of that set and an inventory of nearly 200K of items… go figure…

I tried several keywords and when I typed ‘Asylum’ something from 22769 showed up – BINGO!

The whole gacha set is called “Abandoned Asylum” [*facepalms*… I should have known that much…). It contains many different items, furniture and deco parts and even a full Asylum house is part of it as the mystical prize! I rezzed out a few things and played with them until everything fell together for the whole set 🙂

I had a lot of fun doing those pictures and the whole process of finding all parts I needed for my idea, just reminded me about  why I love blogging and making pictures so much… the fun and joy of being creative and use all kind of things even if they do not belong together on the first view 😉

Fantasy Dreams with Wicca’s Wardrobe

Miniel 1

Today I would like to showcase one of our latest releases. The “Miniel” outfit is available at the actual round of The Fantasy Collective (TFC).

Miniel 9

For today I chose the blue/brass version of the outfit, as it looked the best in the wooden environment I chose for my pictures. At the event you will find 5 different colors for the outfit.

The body is decorated with some armor looking parts as well as with some very filigree chains. The cool arm and leg armor is part of the whole “Miniel” outfit too.

Miniel 7

When I saw the “Eva” wings from NeverWish, I totally fell in love with them. They matched so perfect in style and color to the “Miniel” outfit.

Miniel 5

The “Eva” wings are incredible detailed and wonderful textured, little wings, that fit to many different looks. With the delicate roses and the wonderful filigree metal shapes they are a must have for every fantasy wardrobe. The wings do have a HUD to recolor the wings and metals separately.

Miniel 3

The cool “Nanina” hair was made by EMO-tions. The hair is made of many little braided parts, that are non symmetrical and have an awesome high top part.

The boots are as well from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The “Inara” boots with the little golden spikes and chains totally rocked the style and the blue version of the ‘Chic Edition’, even matched the color of the “Miniel” body suit.

Inspired by Tom Ford S/S 2015 – How I put my style together?

Ferosh 02

I have to admit the idea to make a Tom Ford inspired look came not out of my head. There was a casting a few days ago and they requested a 70s Glam style after the S/S Collection 2015 of Tom Ford.

So I made my homework and sat down with google and watched first the fashion show of that collection and the I asked google for some pictures out of that show.

I tried to figure out what were the main aspects of the whole collection. Besides many details I saw black, black and black, some straps, a lot of sheer materials, shoes with high platform heels. messy hair and smokey eyes paired with nude lips.

So far so good. Since I did not wanna copy any of those stylings to as well bring an aspect of myself to it.

I started with the sheer part. I went through my inventory to find something that does not cover up the whole body and as well would not totally hide under all the mesh clothing.

In the end, the “Brigitte Body Tights” from LeeZu were the choice after trying on several sheer parts of my inventory. I liked it cause the arms and the lower legs are left bare wich gives a lightly sexy touch wich I found as well in most of the Tom Ford show pictures.

Now… find something that really shows the sheer and does not cover it up totally…

Regular pants would just have hidden the sheer body suit. After trying several pants – short, capri, 3/4 – I remembered the pants of GizzA’s “Donatella” outfit. With only one leg and the belt holding the pants in place that was the exact piece that I wanted. To cover the private part I wanted to use something not super solid and I put on the “Romance Black” panties from [Magnolia In], wich sadly does not exist anymore.

The top should be something that catches the straps/wrap character and as well the 70s Glam part. I decided to go with the “TSADE / Body Cuff” from  .Shi. It looked good and as well the way I wanted, but I was missing something still. I tried several bra, s and short top, but either they did not look good or they poked out under the Body Cuff. Since this was going to be a casting styling, there was no way to cheat with poking through prims :p

Ferosh 03

Finally I found the “Daleth” top, as well made by .Shi. With the golden ornaments and the shining black texture it was exact the right piece for the look.

I saw no jewelry on most of the pictures that I saw and with the golden decorations at the top it looked ok to me.

Messy hair… sounds like an easy task but after trying some of the hair I already had and a lot of demos, I figured I need a short hairstyle as everything else was either poking into the “Body Cuff” or the top *sighs*. I did not saw any short hair on the pictures I looked and nearly started all over with a nother idea, when I saw the “Nyja” hair from eXxEsS. It was not exactly what I was looking for but after trying and looking at it for some time I liked it more and more 🙂

For the finish I just needed some smokey eyes and a light lip gloss wich not put any color on my lips, just a little shine.

Finesmith – “Asia”

Yula Finesmith is back from her vacation.. and we have a bunch of amazing new releases at Finesmith!!! For today I have the “Asia” set for you 🙂 A wonderful, elegant and beautiful set, that contains a pair of earrings, a necklace and a ring. The basic shape we can see is kinda flower. The filigree lines at the outsides, that give the imagination of the petals meet in the middle in a fantastic textured pearl. The pearls, in a smaller size,  you as well can find at the very end of the silver ‘petals’ as well. Again we can see yula’s amazing skills if it comes to design and details. Her unique creations seem to be an inspiration for other jewelry designers as well, what bigger compliment you can get as a designer… so way to go yula… you rock 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Thank you Yula :)

Lately Xenobia Foxclaw had a great idea… she asked all the Finesmith models to think about their favourite Finesmith Designs set, snap it, write a few words about and posted them on the Finesmith Designs Blog. It was really hard to decide but in the end this was my contribution to it 😉

“As I was asked to pic my favourite Finesmith jewelry pieces, I did not think not too long and said “Yes sure, gimme a few minutes”…
…but then I was going over and over my Finesmith pieces and found out … it is harder then I thought to find my “favourite”, because if I woudl add all the ones I call my favourites one picture would not be enough 😉
So I was thinking, to wich piece I have the most personal relationship…
It was a huge honor for me to be chosen as one of the Finesmith Muse 2011. All of the finalists got a signature Inspiration set that carries our name. Yula put in so much time, effort and love in each piece she created. She tried to make for each of us a very personal set that mirrors our style and personality. For that she took time for each of us for talking to know us better and find out more about each finalist.
To honor all that she did and because she catched myself so much in the “Wicca” inspiration set I chose to wear it as my personal favourite.
Thank you Yula and the whole Finesmith Family, for a place in Second Life that I really can call home and family :)”

Finesmith Designs – Inspiration Sets March/April Part I

Finally I made it to snap my wonderful inspiration set of the Finesmith Muse 2011 contest. On the 1st of May, Finesmith Designs had a wonderful show, produced by Kabuki Boutique. The show was called “11 Rooms”. Each room had a special scene.

Each model with it’s own inspiration set had a room that was made especially for that set. Taylor Wassip was acting in a bedroom, Luralie Bailey danced in a club scene, Rissa Friller was in a shopping rage at a Jewelry Store, Aliyeh Yifu, the little mermaid  was swimming in an amazing underwater scenerie, Shena Neox was putting together a wonderful style in a dressing room, Vivienne Coppola showcased her awesome set in a cabaret show, Jamee Sandalwood wandered around the forrest, Sy Whitesong hovered through the downtown at night, myself was captured in a dungeon, Melanie Sauterau (for the show replaced by Serene Faith) strolled through an Art Gallery and Rusalka Callisto was turning her body in front of a camera in a photostudio.

During the show always one room was opened and each model has it’s own song to showcase the jewelry with a short choreography of poses. The audience was sitting in the middle of a black room and one room after another opened and a short story was read in a very interesting way not like the usual scripts of fashion shows. For this blog post I for sure wanted to show you the incredible set yula Finesmith made for me and as well I will try to show you all the wonderful sets one by one :). Luckily, I got the script afterwards so I can give you a short impression what was happening there :). At this point a big thank you to Xenobia Foxclaw who did this awesome script 🙂

As I mentioned… my room was a little dungeon. All in red and black with a cage and candles. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kabukimodels/5679571069/in/photostream) and for sure a text that matched this theme perfectly 😉

“Wicca Merlin was not born into the life of slavery. She entered it willingly with her eyes wide open. She adored her master and did his bidding. From cleaning his house to pleasing him in bed…she did it all without a word of complaint.

She knew he particularly liked to find her in this elaborate cage that hung in the dungeon surrounded by candles. She knew she looked especially pretty in candle light, and she loved the way the metals glinted and the candles set them ablaze on the walls. Tonight she wore his favorite set of jewelry – the Finesmith set that had been made to fit her. They felt warm and sensuous, and they fulfilled the promise he made when she signed the contract that made her his slave. Wicca would only enter such a relationship if the reward were her own set of jewelry from Yula. Wicca was quite sure she had the better end of that bargain.”

The second set I would like to show you, was made for Melanie Sauterau. For the show Serene Faith our actual MVW replaced Melanie as she was not able to make to the the show.

“Tonight is the opening of a new gallery exhibit. The pieces have been selected with great care to show the best work of this renowned artist. She is so young to be so accomplished in photography, oils, marble, metal, and gems. Her metal work is undoubtedly what she is best known for. I’m so very honored to be part of this exhibit. I’ve heard people say how very life-like I am. Some have even reached out to touch my skin to assure themselves that I am not a living model, or they watch my breast to see if I breath. I don’t understand how I cannot be living though – I have feelings, I love, I cry, I wonder..
I wonder who this person is who I’m named after – Melony Inspiration. Melony is a beautiful name, she must be beautiful to have inspired a work such as I am and the jewelry that I wear. I wonder if she is living still – perhaps a long lost love or a mother remembered fondly. I wonder what the story behind me is…I wonder.”

The last one for today yula made for Vivienne Coppola. A wild and fresh set that totally is a must have for every fashionista!

” Of all of her friends, Vivienne Coppola is the perfect one to appear in a dream cabaret. She has a wonderful collection of vintage flapper clothing. She is also dramatic in her behavior and her movements. She is even known to burst out into song and dance right on the street.
Even her jewelry, from Finesmith Designs, is perfect for her dramatic flair. The pieces seem somehow exuberant just like Vivienne. The band, the music, the dance, the beat of the drum – it all seems so full of life.
Listen, perhaps you can hear her now coming down the hall singing, “Stroke that shiny coat, stroking is the antidote, stroke that it’s a start, only for the wild at heart” – such a sexy song to sing and dance to. Yes, Vivienne is the perfect one to appear in this cabaret.”

All of the March / April inspiration sets are limited to 50 sets each and you can as well purchse them in single parts! As I said there are 10 new inspiration sets and I will show them to you one after another, so stay tuned for all the other lovely piece of arts created for wonderful models by yula Finesmith, owner and genius goddess of Finesmith Designs!

Finesmith Designs: 11 Rooms – The Inspiration Show!!!

Adorable news by PurpleMoon!

Last days I had a very elegant parcel brought by the postman… the look was very familiar and I was shivering because of excitement and happyness… the parcel was from Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon. I could not wait and run back into my livingroom and openend the big box… took the outfit and was holding it in front of my body looking into the mirror… AMAZING!!!

I could not wait anymore and put it on, again looking at myself in the mirror. “Marilyn” in the color sapphire, such a breathtaking awesome gown. I saw a little letter in that box and grabbed it still exploring the amazing fabrics of that new blue gown with my fingertips.

“Hello ladies!
We’ve got a new lovely gown today. I was asked to design two gowns for the GLANCE Fashion Awards 2011 Ceremony. It was an honor to design these gowns for two beautiful ladies, Patty Cortes and HoneyBear Lilliehook.
They said “red carpet” and “ruffles” and this gown came up, I named it “Marilyn” as a tribute to the sexy woman and fashion icon, Marilyn Monroe.
Patty Cortes decide to wear this gown in red and I added another 5 colors. I hope you like and enjoy this gown. There is also a demo version of the skirt available to try before buying it. Being a sculpted skirt I thought it would be handy to get to see how it fits.
The second gown I made for this ceremony will come soon!”

I read Poulet’s words and smiled… yes this gown really was made for a red carpet! The shoulderfree gown gives enough room for an amazing necklace and I chose to try the “Inspiration Celestial” set from Finesmith Designs. This set perfectly matched with this elegnat gown. With the silver of the jewerly I could repeat lightly the amazing sparklinig textures, that were added to the gown, for example on the right hips. The skirt is shorter and lightly open in the front so that your sexy long legs are showcased in a wonderful elegant way. For the backpart you have a wonderful train looking part that goes down till it nearly reaches the floor. The folds and ruffles are beautiful made and give the whole gown a very realsitic and dynamic touch. To see all the other great colors you can purchase that gown… you better make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore 🙂
