Lately real life is very time consuming – more than it used to be before Covid 19. As a musician and teacher you kinda double your hours with the same income than you had before. Classes need to be decreased to full fill the standard of hygienic behavior given by the state and online schooling takes ore time as well, as you need to learn all the new tools you need. It is ok, but with that SL time gets reduced a lot lately for me.

But all those amazing new releases – just dragged me to SL and I had to snap a quick picture to showcase at least a few of them today 😉 I am not a snapshot only person and so it as well takes time to post work the picture(s), which makes it not really more easy if you already are short on time… but times will bet better again, I am sure they will 🙂

Stand up for your Rights!

TUNES

Preacher man, don’t tell me
Heaven is under the earth
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth
It’s not all that glitters is gold
‘Alf the story has never been told
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. Come on!
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight!

[Bob Marley]

When I was styling and shooting todays pictures, I saw a lot of things on the news that made me sad again. It is so embarrassing, that in the 21st century we still have to talk about human equality – it should be our nature by now and not something we still need to debate about! We are all humans anyways what skin color, religion, ethnics or countries we have or come from. I was raised that way, that I should always see humanity in people first, get to know them and then decide if I like them or not, but not because of their visible trademarks.I am very happy that according to the news there is many people who think the same – sadly not yet all. There are enough things to dislike someone, but that only should be about character attributes and nothing else. I am not a dreamer… not everyone can go along with everyone else – we have our own character as well – but it shouldn’t be any thing that we judge about, before we actually know the person itself and know what we dislike about a certain person! In a world where we can fly everywhere in the world and can live where ever we choose, those idiotic, racist thoughts should be gone – ALL kind of them! We all have our traditions and no one will take them away, just because we allow another one to be close and have their own traditions and culture – it even can be interesting and exciting, at least for me.

So yes, STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS if someone tries to take them away from you!

At Night…

TUNES

Sunk deep in the night
I sink in the night
Standing alone underneath the sky
I feel the chill of ice
On my face
I watch the hours go by
The hours go by


You sleep
Sleep in a safe bed
Curled and protected
Protected from sight
Under a safe roof
Deep in your house
Unaware of the changes at night

At night
I hear the darkness breathe
I sense the quiet despair
Listen to the silence
At night
Someone has to be there
Someone has to be there

Someone must be there

In Darkness let me Dwell

TUNES

In darkness let me dwell, the ground shall sorrow be
The roof despair to bar all cheerful light from me
The walls of marble black that moistened still shall weep
My music hellish jarring sounds to banish friendly sleep:
Thus wedded to my woes, and bedded to my tomb
O, let me living die, till death do come

[John Dowland]

Again I was in a more dark mood and had fun with the dark side of life 😉

I wanted to show off some new releases from CerberusXing, which completely caught my heart. The “Industrial Valkyrie” gacha set is a complete must have if you want to be one of the cool kids. The set contains top, skirt and the thigh-high stomper boots, which are decorated with some amazing chains at the foot. The black top and skirt are the rarely while you have 6 more colors, including white, in the commons. The colors are so very well compatible you can even mix and match different colors and have an amazing look.

The incredible detailed face chain as well was made by CerberusXing. The “Tyran’s Chain” is available in gold, silver and onyx at FaMESHed. It reaches over half the face from the ear towards the nose where it is ending in a little ring-shaped nose piercing. I found out that it perfectly goes with the “Ostium Impaler” ears as well made by [CX].

The perfect matching tattoo was made by Nefekalum Tattoos. It wasn’t meant to be word with the outfit intentionally, but for me it was the perfect match! It has long black arms and some amazing devilish ornaments across them and over the chest. The tattoo comes with materials, appliers and as BoM layers, so you really can choose what fits your style best or what you like most.

I will now go and try again all the other colors of that great gacha and make my personal mix and match with them for an everyday use – just to prove that I am not ONLY wearing black all the time *giggles*

Captured by my own Thoughts…

The past week was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. Life changed with the pandemic all over the world, I guess most of the people try to work with it as best as they can. For me personal, I am not suffering not too bad from quarantine and lock-down. I still get to teach 7/8 hours a days from Monday to Thursday – I am on of the lucky ones to have students who have/were given all the needed hardware to do online school with them. I just adjusted my work space/office to have a virtual classroom. I set up my camera and monitors to have one screen share for files and another as “chalkboard” where I can write on. That is working really fine for about 5 weeks now, even if I really miss seeing my students in person sometimes.

I followed the discussions about how to start school again with high interest, as according to all other news we are not yet over the pandemic problems since we have not yet any kind of vaccine. So we still have rules like limited contacts only, do not take your kids on your shopping tours and in some areas even the duty to wear masks while shopping or being on public transport vehicles. All over they tell us the self made masks won’t protect us from being infected and only safe the people around you in case you are infected and do not know. Reading all that I thought, they will keep school online for the rest of this school year to be honest, at least for those who have a good running system and perfect contact to their students. I was so wrong… They now force all exam classes back to school with no exception of having better alternatives or possibilities, which would limit the risk to get infected. So even if you have a good running online schooling, it doesn’t matter. If you have better ideas against the given “10 – 15 students in one little classroom”, for example use the gyms which is like 3 to 4 times bigger than a class room and you could keep the class together with 18 people and still have more space between them and as well the teacher… no exceptions allowed. When I read the reason for that “no exceptions” politics I was shocked. The reason would be to TEST how the numbers of infections change, if you put 10-15 people with the teacher in one tiny classroom… WTF?!? What is wrong with our society if we use kids and teachers as “guinea pigs” if we could have other solutions to keep them way more safe and healthy? I would not say a word, if that would be the only possibility to go back to a regular school schedule and if we already would have ways to really protect people like I already said for example vaccine, or at least protecting masks and what ever it needs! Our kids have their parents at home, sometimes even their grandparents. Some have parents, who suffer from all kind of heavy sicknesses or diseases! Just because the symptoms are not affecting the majority of kids that much, we just take the risk of making our kids sick on purpose and make them bringing it home to the rest of their family?!? I just do not see the pressure of having schools back up and having all grades right for the next certificate in only a few month by risking the health and maybe even the life of people or kids, especially if we could have all kind of work-arounds like home schooling or better protection if the classes have to be in presence of kids and teacher. I am not a paranoid person, I wasn’t panicking at all over all that past weeks, but the news of the past few days just totally did throw me off and beyond.

With all of that, I guess it again pulled out my darker side again for my pictures, but I do not mind that, since I do enjoy that side of mine too 😉
Lately I found a mega cool tattoo brand called Vegas Tattoo. They really do interesting and well drawn tattoos for an everyday look – if you love tattoos like me that would be 😉 Today I chose one of their latest releases for Spring Flair Event called “Welcoming Spring”. The tattoo covers all parts of the body, You have something on your front and back upper body, your arms and hands as well as down your right leg. What caught me the most is, that the seams are extremely well done. A nice little detail is the sweet butterfly at your left hip with all the more dark looking ornaments of the rest of the tattoo 😉
Certainly I had to complete my style with a lot of incredible, amazing CerberusXing designs – I can’t help it iam just a [CX] addicted *winks* Since I am in a way better mood now, after venting just a bit today in the beginning of my post, I will see with what I will come up next…

Deep Sea

TUNES

Deep sea dive
Got down, but you stayed alive
It’s only you down there
You and the bends
Lose your mind
Lose track of breathing and time
It’s only you down there
Sleep with the tides

Die, my love
Breathe in twos and fours
To know what’s worth breathing for
Some days it’s easier than falling asleep

We can be anyone
It took so long to know someone like you
And age in the dying sun
Wake only to bathe in vivid greens and blues

[Snail Mail]
A couple of days ago I was looking for days to find a nude, very pale lipstick for a very special look. I wanted to archive hat typical “dark smokey eyes against super pale nearly vanishing nude lips” look. I am wearing a very light, pale skin and all the usual nude lipsticks I found were too dark for what I was looking for – I have so many nude lipsticks in my inventory now… I probably never need to buy another in my whole second life 😉 . But like I said before none of them was working. While I sat here cursing and almost skipping my desired look with wearing my “everyday skin” I thought it would not hurt to ask in the LeLutka Discord channel, if anyone would know a very light, nude, nearly white looking lipstick I maybe could tint. I got one fast answer of a sweet Lady asking me if i would look for an applier, BoM layers or HD Lips for the new evolution headline – I was totally shocked by the thought of I would even get a chance to choose, since I could not find any of those matching my thought before! She had a store name in her Discord name so I went to the SL inworld search and looked for her store… CAZIMI!
I never heard of her store before but it turned out as a little  gem for LeLutka addicted people! She does offer BoM and other head appliers too, but she doesn’t treat the LeLutka cosmetics like stepchildren… No, she even privileges them! When Dima – owner and designer of CAZIMI – spied me at her store, she came down and poked me into the right direction for the super light nude lipstck she made. I tried a demo and already saw that the lips are incredible amazing fitted and textured. So I went ahead and bought the desired pack called “Trending HD Lipstick (Lelutka) Set 02 Neutrals” And guess what… it was PERFECTLY that color, that I needed for my skin tone! I will showcase that in one of my next posts as well, but while we were standing there and me being uberly happy and as well amazed by her work I could not resist to buy the colorful pack of the same lipstick with its rich and deep hued colors. The set is called “Trending HD Lipstick (Lelutka) Set 03 Colorful” and it is the lipstick I am using for my todays post. You get 8 rich and amazing colors with this pack – light blue, dark blue, light green, dark green, cyan, yellow and orange. What I do love a lot is that her lipsticks are NOT making that sadly popular thick, wide and pouty lips. It does look like a very natural lipstick with a little shine, which makes it very realistic looking.
I had no words how grateful I was for this amazing lipstick and especially the light, pale one I was looking for and while we were talking I peeked around the store a little more and found a lot of more useful, adorable cosmetics and nails. All cosmetics and nail polishes I am wearing for todays post are from CAZIMI. This is definitely a store, I will sort at the very top of my personal cosmetic stores. She does not only provide crazy makeup and nails, she as well has all kind of makeups, lipsticks and nails from cute to fierce and she keeps releasing new designs. So keep an eye on that wonderful store if you are looking for new and interesting, as well as very well fitting and shaped makeup.
I already posted the “Kanji” ears from .:E.A.Studio:. (HERE), but I wanted to use them again for a new gacha from .:E.A.Studio:. called “Domino Set”. It was available at the Kinky Event, but I am sure you will find it soon as well in Shina Shan‘s main store. The gacha is a pure earring gacha. You can gamble for 6 different earrings in various colors, which makes the gacha a full with 21 different possibilities to win. I tried to use all 6 different earrings on both ears. They are not rigged and so you can easily edit them and have fun with combining them differently.
The tattoo I am wearing with its incredible materials was made by Sir Skye Nefekalum, designer and owner of Nefekalum Tattoos. The tattoo is as well part of a gacha with 11 different, wonderful and extraordinary tattoos. It should be available at the Gachaland event and afterwards I am sure you will find it at the Nefekalum Tattoos main store.
I hope you enjoyed my little deep sea journey… I will make my way up to the human world again and prepare my next post 😉

The Approach…

Crazy times… Corona still holds the world in its hand and all of us try to do our best to fight it, even if we cannot see yet any success and things seem to get worse and worse. I know it isn’t the fact, but sometimes it feels like it. We are now in our second week without school in Germany. I am a teacher (usually in the mornings I do teach at a school) and I do have a tiny private afternoon tutoring company. Usually I am surrounded by kids all day and in the past I had days where that was quite exhausting. Always having 10 to 60 kids around you from 8 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon didn’t feel always easy but now that I see how it is to have none of them around – it doesn’t feel good either. I am lucky to have the possibility to hold online classes and have some one-on-one tutoring as well, but it doesn’t feel the same. Before the difficulties were the noise in bigger groups, or the kids being distracted by looking outside the window and now… the difficulties have changed. I never thought it could be that hard to explain something like mathematics to a child online only online… you talk a lot more trying to describe everything and if they have to draw triangles with certain length or certain degree angles. Most of them do not have the technical equipment to show you what they did, they usually only can take a snap with their cellphone and send it to me.. and if they spend already like 20 min to do that task and then something went wrong you can start all over again.

Certainly it has a positive side as well – I do not have the distance and the time to drive to school and back in the afternoon and I have the advantage of having an open bowser all the time to find answers I might not know out of the blue for certain questions, so I do not wanna whine or rage about it – I just discover everyday the differences and the different difficulties. Between all that I try to keep my Mom inside and safe – she is over 70 and recently had a brain tumor and chemo after it, so she is in the risk group for that damn virus as well. So my Second Life times at the moment are a little bit more limited and not as regular as I used to be, but I do not want to stop blogging and taking pictures completely as it feels like a little bit of resting time and holiday for my brain when I do that.

The pictures for todays post I already did  over a week ago, but I wasn’t able to post work them and write something about yet. So now the Cyber fair by ACCESS sadly is over but I am sure you can find all the goodies in the designers main stores already or soon.

First of all the amazing vinyl ensemble from A&Y called “Phex”, which is a combination of a long sleeved top and short pants with an awesome, realistic looking shine. It is decorated with straps and zippers and with the huge HUD you can change the colors for all different parts including the metals.

All the amazing accessories I as well found at the Cyber Fair, but like I said before I am sure you will find them most likely either already or soon at the designers main stores. The incredible face art done by Nefekalum Tattoos comes in 3 different versions. You can find many different tings in your folder. First of all the 3 different versions of the makeup it self. Black Tears only, Red Smudge only and a full version of both. Furthermore you will find appliers for head and body materials and the belonging erasers. On top of that, since all his tattoos are materials enabled, Sir Skye added a perfect projector (light source) as well, for you to use if you like.

Certainly I did need some cool nails and rings to complete my outfit and it was no question that the “Creature Claws” from CerberusXing were just the perfect choice. They are available in 3 colors (silver, onyx and gold) and rigged for Belleza Jake,  Signature Gianni, Maitreya and the female Slink hands.

The smart looking hair style was made by no.match. I love the wild top hair, the shaved sides and the fact that you still have 2 wisps at your ears. Like always for no.match hair styles you have different color packs and a fatpack available. The purchases will include a shaved hairbase as well, but since I do have my own shaved hair base I did not use it for todays post 😉

It was time again to built my own set – I found so many cool things at the Cyber Fair, I just had to. All you can see, from the backdrop over the drinks, food (weed) vending machine and the incredible animals, I collected at the Cyber Fair.

I would like to draw your attention a little bot towards the animals. The “Caged Biter” is available in 3 different colors. You can separate the animal from the cage as you can see in my pictures. The Biter is an animated mesh design and has adorable movements, which make it possible to have some more interactive looking pictures with the different poses or the animal.

I do have an immense fun at the moment with cyber and sci-fi posts as they open a whole new range for pictures and styles to me. We do not know what the fashion or environment will look like in our future, but for me that gives us a lot of room to experiment and the possibility of unending creativity 🙂

“Lake” came to the Skin Fair!

First of all I wanted to excuse myself for not posting the past 2 weeks, but as you all know the times at the moment are a little bit difficult. The new situation with the Corona virus did turn a lot of lifes upside down I guess. For me being a teacher and doing private tutoring in the afternoons,  having all the school closed now did throw me into a little bit of stress to keep my monthly income up at least as much that I do not run into trouble over the next few month.

But now all is settled and I can do pictures and post again \o/

So today I would like to showcase the new LeLUTKA Evolution head called “Lake”. You can find it at the Skin Fair together with the first new male head for the Evolution line, which is on a promo sale for the duration of the Skin Fair.

“Lake” is the 3rd head of the new Evolution Line, which concentrates on the new BoM feature. I already did a full review 0f the new HUD and all its features HERE. It does come with a default skin but since I have so much fun with playing with skins on the new Evolution heads I decided to fool around with some of the new Glam Affair skins.

To me “Lake” appears as the most edgy and adult head of the 3 for now and I loved the mouth part a lot. Today I am using it with one of the new skins of Glam Affair – made for the new Evolution lines – called “Cindy”, which you can get at the Glam Affair main store. I used tone “002 E” as I love me some pale look 😉

That amazing “Hairbase.c88.22”  as well was made by LeLUTKA for their new Evolution head line and perfectly fits for a centre parting long hair style or even for a ponytail hair attachment. You can wear it solo as well like I did, with a hat or a cap on only.

Make sure to jump over to the Skin Fair to get your “Lake” head and even more drag your man over there too to get the new “Skyler” head for the promo sale price of 3700L$ only!

Sweet Succubus

TUNES

You came to me in my sleep
A succubus all dressed in red
Filth that you whisper is sweet
But it’s my dream so let it be said:

You must have taken the wrong turn
You’ve ended up in hell

Hear me, temptress of the night,
There is more than one demon here
I see temples I yearn to defile,
‘Cause our horns hide divinity

And I think that the smell of your soft skin,
Is no less than the last legal drug
So here’s my seditious and bold whim:
Let’s drag the moon and make him watch

This grip will bloom into a bruise
These scars are your tattoos.
I said – “what kind of man would not succumb?”
You said – ‘what kind of monster you’ve become?

Succubus! Your horns are broken down
Succubus! Your wings are torn apart

[Phedora]
