Late Autumn – Soon I need to turn on the Heating again!

Pose: – “Blasphemous Sister” (hand animation altered)

Todays post is filled with items from people I highly value, respect and I am happy to be able to call some of them friends as well ๐Ÿ™‚

After I had a blast with creepy and unusual looks, I thought it would be time for a autumn casual one – not that I will give up on the other though!

First of all I would like to mention the backdrop. The “Atelier Baudelaire” backdrop again shows the incredible skills of Hattie Panacek. I rarely saw such amazing detailed and realistic textures, as you can see it on all of her creations. What I do love the most is that she not just does clean and tidy textures, she allows as well non perfect and dirty spots. To me that gives the designs even more life and realistic feelings – nothing is perfect in RL and if it is it looks like a display in a warehouse but not like a realistic “used” place. Especially if you have materials on, her designs will blow you away in a good way!

The “Atelier Baudelaire” backdrop is a huge loft looking backdrop with 2 sides. The right side you can see on my todays pictures. It shows the desk of an artist or designer while the left side shows the actual working place of an artist- soon I will showcase the other side as well, but that backdrop perfectly shows, that you can use it for more than just one picture if you just use the right angles and crops. I do like it a lot, when you can use a backdrop more than once. Often enough you only can use backdrops only once, as they will be recognized instantly again on your flickr or blog.

The amazing coat was made by Salt & Pepper for the UBER event. The coat can be worn with or without the turtleneck shirt and certainly you have a color HUD to mix and match the whole design to your likings. Certainly you can color the shirt and the coat separately. What I loved the most on that coat was the texture. All the tiny leather details and the lightly used look completely caught my attention.

The hair was made by no.match and it was released for the last round of Tres Chic, but I am sure you will find it at the main store by now. The hair is a more loose style with a huge hair band that brings the hair down the left shoulder to the front. To me it looked perfect, it did underline the loose look of the trench coat so nicely. I love the hair textures of no.match a lot and especially the blond pack has a blond tone that I completely fell in love with. I do like the fact as well that you have a so called “Essential” pack for nearly every hair style. Even if my personal favorite blonde is not included in that one, it gives you the possibility to have more than one color, even if you do not want to buy the whole fatpack. Sometimes I want more than just color, for different possibilities on pictures, but a full fatpack sometimes is too expensive for a hair style you just want to use for a picture ๐Ÿ˜‰

But now I need to work on the picture for the left side of the amazing “Atelier Baudelaire”… I hope you enjoyed my first fall/winter post, even if it was a more casual looking one again ๐Ÿ˜‰

What a Feeling!

TUNES

First when there’s nothing
But a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried
Silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel
Made of stone
Well, I hear the music
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around
Take a hold of my heart
Now I hear the music
Close my eyes, I am rhythm
In a flash
It takes hold of my heart
What a feeling
Bein’s believin’
I can have it all
Now I’m dancing for my life
Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life
What a feeling!

A Walk in the Park

Walk in the Park

You go for a walk in the park ’cause you don’t need anything
The hand that you sometimes hold doesn’t do anything
The face that you see in the door isn’t standing there anymore
In a matter of time, it would slip from my mind
In and out of my life, you would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

But I’m always on the run

First Snow! – Winter Trend 2017

Matching the actual season the Winter Trend Fair 2017 is going on on the grid.

Amazing winter designs, that put you in a snow mood even if RL is not yet willing to gives snow yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

SL’s best designers again digged deep in their creativity sources to bring us amazing winter designs, certainly Utopia cannot be missed at such a great event!

Today the amazing “Wania” boots, made for the Winter Trend 2017, were the basic for my todays post and pictures. I always adored Utopia.. their shoes are one of the most stunning and realistic designs on the grid. The awesome high heels go up to the knee, while the bottom has some sexy toes peeping out ๐Ÿ˜‰ The fatpack or multi HUD has amazing features. You get 9 presets, which you can apply quickly and you have 5 options to raise the glossiness of the fabric. That comes in very handy depending, what kind of outfit you have on. If you tick the second tab of the HUD you get very detailed texture changing options. 6 different parts of the shoes can be color changed to 8 different colors! Can you just imagine how many possibilities that are? What more you can ask of such an awesome and sexy high heeled boot?

The cute knitted knee warmers and the cardigan with the fur collar, I found as well at the Winter Trend 2017 – I am sure no pixel animal has to loose its skin for that amazing design ๐Ÿ˜‰ The sleeves are an old favorite of mine from a store that sadly already closed years ago. For the basic outfit I used the Lyra outfit from Wicca’s Wardrobe. With the awesome ruffled top and skirt and some tights, it made a perfect match for a cool winter look! “Lyra” as well comes with a huge HUD to customize many single parts of the outfit and so it was easy to match the incredible “Wania” boots from Utopia.

The amazing simple but stunning makeup I found at On9. Alaskametro<3 did an amazing job with the “Soiree” eyeshadow, the shimmer metallics are a perfect choice for a everyday look and as well work for an evening party look. The “Fay” lipgloss with its sheer colors and the little flecks of glitterย  are perfect for a pixie-perfect lipstick!

With all the fur I needed a winter scenery and so I thought it is time to get some winter on the parcel beside our store and India helped me with some Christmas decoration… I am not THAT much of a Christmas person, so I just added the amazing wolves and cat from Jian to get some sweet and cozy winter feelings ๐Ÿ˜‰

One more week to go until Christmas… and I still need some presents – like every year I again did not make it to have all together one week before Christmas*snickers*

I hope you already have yours and can have a relaxed week to prepare your apartment/house like you want it for Christmas!

Diversity in Black and White for SL Fierce

Dark Beauty for SL Fierce Magazine (https://issuu.com/slfiercemagazine/docs/fierce-feb17_final)

I love working for magazines and not too long ago the newest issue of SL Fierce was released.

SL Fierce, February 2017

SL Fierce is something special to me, as they (aka mainly Steele Sirnah, as SL Fierce is kinda his baby ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) always come up with amazing themes and as well with challenging styling requests, but you always have to use your own inventory and have kinda free reign of what you are doing without any given items or rules.

Certainly it is fun too if you get things from amazing designers, but it is a totally different workflow for me then. When you get a design, then you try to highlight it in your look. You want to promote the designer that gave you the item and with the focus on that you built a style around that. I would not choose one over the other as I like both and each is a totally different challenge than the other ๐Ÿ˜‰

This time SL Fierce was going for ‘Dark & Light Feathers’ as well as for ‘Dark Beauty’. When I was told, who I may shoot with, I totally was looking forward to the shoots, as I always feel an invisible band between me and her and she seems to think so much alike and always feels and gets my weirdness :p

I am talking about WrenNoir Cerise, one of the most creative and skilled artists I met in SL, when it comes to 2D art and as well a wonderful and kind lady.

Light Feathers for SL Fierce Magazine (https://issuu.com/slfiercemagazine/docs/fierce-feb17_final)

Working with Wren always means huge fun and as well amazing pictures ๐Ÿ™‚ She loves to experiment and while she does her set ups or looks for the right poses she is even getting more into her creative universe.

The first look of the 3 I started with, was the Light Feathers, since I thought that might take me the longest to style since white is not my total comport zone ๐Ÿ˜‰

First I thought about an angel, but what ever I tried it looked weird to me and so I decided to try something different. Something more fantasy and satyr or faun looking. I always loved the “Wisdom Angel Wings” from Astralia so much and now I got the chance to try something with them ๐Ÿ™‚ The rest kinda fell in place very smooth ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the Dark Beauty, I wanted a strong, dark diva look :p And with the outfit from Pixicat combined with the stole of *agp* it was easy to achieve that.

The Dark Feathers, that was the one I felt most comfortable with… that was my personal playground*giggles* I love to mis and match so I used a lot of different feather attachments for this look.

It is amazing to see how so many different outfit parts that do not really belong to ech other on the first view, can become a new outfit.

Thank you SL Fierce, especially Steele & thank you Wren for another amazing challenge and time working on those looks and having the photo shoots!
