The more I try… the more I love!

BENTO… the more I try.. the more I love :p

Certainly we have BENTO now for quite some time but the more I look into, I find more and more possibilities and options. I was resisting to get BENTO hands as I did not like the shape of most of them too much and always counted on Slink or Maitreya to come up with their bento hands and I was not disappointed 🙂

We even got both as free updates for the hands we already owned!

The waiting was worth it and paired with the BENTO enabled AOs and animations or poses, it already was a wonderful experience. But when I found a special hands animator to even modify exiting poses for pictures slightly… that finally got me!

I did not yet make up my mind if I wanna use mainly my Maitreya of my Slink hands, so I just change back and forth depending on the accessories I want to wear for each new look.

When I saw the “Hand Poser HUD” from FATE, I did know instantly – I want that! To have control not only using premade poses but being able to adjust poses to make them even better fit for certain purposes – PRICELESS!

I am still in love with my LeLutka Simone head and with all the new face expressions there is so much to play with 😉 Especially the tongue ones I enjoy a lot lately, but as well several photo emotions are available now for a real cool price. They are so easy to install with the injector, which even looks funny with the syringe that appears when you add the injector and load the emotions into your LeLutka head HUD.

With all my BENTO cheering, I do not want to forget about my todays style 😉

It was one of the looks, I put together for one of my GizzA shifts. When I got the “Rodeo Shirt” and the “Grace” mini skirt, I immediately had the imagination of a modern ‘Cowgirl’ looking style.

Giz and Auster are amazing creative designers and over all the time they really became close and dear freinds to me 🙂 Thank you Giz and Auster for all your trust and support!

With the amazing “Indio” boots from Reign –  which as well matched perfectly in colors – I already had the right touch . The suede fabric and the laces on the outsides just made the perfect look. For the necklace I decided to go with a wrapped whip – you never know when a cowgirl will need one :p

Thoughtful…

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You’re frozen
When your heart’s not open
You’re so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret
You’re broken
When your heart’s not open

[Madonna]

Today, again I have some lingerie. Lingerie is always something difficult for me as I do not want something boring, nor I wanna over do it especially, if it is such a delicate and filigree lingerie like the “Iris” set from Salt & Pepper at the WCF7.

The set contains bra, panties and a HUD with 6 color options. Matching to that you can get the “Iris” collar which as well has a HUD for 6 satin and 6 metal colors.

The lingerie set is a wonderful mesh ensemble made of satin and lace. Salt always amazes me with her ideas for designs as well as with her detailed outfits and meshes, not even to mention her insane texturing skills. The lingerie is so body tight… on the first view you would think, it is a body applier, but it is really mesh work ON the body!

The tattoo is – how could it be different – from White Widow. It is no secret. that Julie Hastings is one of my favourite… if not my absolute favourite tattoo creator.

If you ever tried to make applier clothing or – in the past – layer clothing, you probably realized that making something detailed for the SL body is not easy. You have to fight seams, you have to fight blurry moments especially on body parts that allow more curves, as you never know who the shape of the users will be. If you look at Julie’s tattoos under this perspective, you only can imagine how much skills and time she puts in her creations.

The amazing shoes I as well found at the WCF7. Phedora made the awesome “Coax” boots with the huge HUD of 25 trendy colors. The knee-high boots have a wonderful laced front and around the legs they are held with straps and buckles.

I loved the interoperation of the several lace parts on the shoes, the lingerie and as well on the tattoo with the fishnet looking parts, that as well gave the imagination of lace.

Like I mentioned at the beginning most of the items are available at the Whore Couture Fair 7 (WCF7). The variety of designs on that event are just amazing. I am sure that there is something for everyone at that event and I will have for sure some more from there in the near future 😉

The Whore Couture Fair 7 is really worth a visit as you have so many different styles of sexy, seductive and even provocative from some of the best designers in SL.The fair is open until March the 31st so you still have time to take a look 😉

Abandoned

Sing for your tears
a song of the hatred
No one can hear
’cause your life is forgotten
I want to give my life to you
but my will is tied with puppet strings
I am fighting and screaming alone
inside this empty room
They let you down, threw you in the rain
They let you down, sent you away… without a name

fetish-2

The night is dark when you’re alone
and sometimes it can be so cruel
The rain keeps falling on me so coldly
’cause your wishes didn’t come true

Nothing seems real anymore
as I dive into the sea of lies
I don’t understand this sorrow
that keeps me sane

LOTD 03/20/2016 – Springtime!

sys + emo-tions 10

Today we had such a wonderful weather – I really got spring feelings!

Driven by those sun touched feelings, I went to my inventory and put on the “Caline” outfit from [sys]. The outfit was made for the Shiny Shabby event and with the shorts and the amazing stylish top, it gives a perfect ‘in between the seasons’ look.

The “Caline” outfit comes in the standard sizes as well as fitted for nearly all popular mesh bodies. I was wearing it with my Slink Physique mesh body and it worked perfectly.

For the shoes my decision fell on the “Gypsy Boots” from Wicca’s Wardrobe. With the loosely style and the used look to me they did underline the casual look. The lace in the back and the amazing lines that surround the ankles give a very smart touch and as well underline the casual feeling.

For the accessories, I wanted to add a bag. The “Charley” bag of [sys] was one of the cutest bags i got lately and so the choice was not a hard one 🙂 The bag comes in a rigged and unrigged version.

The amazing glasses were made by Haysuriza for the On9 event. With the inbuilt HUD it gives a huge variety of changes you can make to match your look.

The cool hair is one of the newer EMO-tions hair. It is called “Carol” and comes with the neat beanie. The HUD gives you a huge variety of colors for the hair and as well some choices for the color of the beanie.

The amazing jewelry – collar and bracelet – was made by Elysium. The cool leather paired with metals really gives a cool part to the whole look. The metals are available in gold or silver for the whole “Ichtaca” set.

Last but not least, I would like to drag your focus on the incredible detailed tattoo. The “Henna” tattoo from White Widow added the last little bit to the whole style, what I was looking for. As mentioned before I am wearing the Slink Physique mesh body – my favourite one –  and the “Henna” tattoo comes for that mesh body as well as for the most common ones.

Since it is still a little bit cold, even if the sun comes out more and more, I decided to wear tights from Izzie’s, which as well come with an applier for the slink body.
