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

New Collection at Devious Minds!

wicca 2

A few days ago Persia Bravin stormed my inventory asking me if I would have seen the latest releases of Devious Mind and I was like .. “Oh uhm.. aehm .. no…” and was trying hard to remember that brand. I know, that I heard it before but I could not really recall what it was. Persia kept talking, while I still was thinking,  she told me I so must see that and I need to meet the owner and in the end I was so curious that I TPed to the LM, Persia gave me and I just fainted. I landed at the !dm sim… sure… !dm was Devious Mind! For sure I know this brand and I as well have tons of her amazing outfits! *facepalms*

Persia kept saying me to contact the owner since she would be as crazy as I am :p . So I tried to reach Chandra Meehan, owner and designer of Devious Mind. She was offline but not too long after I left her a message she came back and we talked a while. She is that kind of persons I love from the beginning… crazy, wild, smartass, just like I use to be*grins*

wicca 3

We were talking about various things, until she asked me what my favourite colors would be. I told her that I basically like most of the colors and just have a pink allergy 😉 . Being a smartass, just imagine what she send me^^. But more about that soon. For today I have the new “Chained Lust ” outfit from Devious Mind. I am sure this outfit has many different facets with the latex catsuit and the amazing mesh chains, but I wanted to make something ‘Wicca like’. So I thought about, what I could do and as if it was fate, I had the the movie “The Crow” on my second monitor, as I started styling. Since I anyways liked the idea of Fetish Couture, I loved the pearl colored catsuit that goes down over feet and hands and only has that deep neckline in the front. You can choose between 3 different colors of the catsuit , as all 3 are included in the pack. The chains come in different sizes, so that you can make sure that the mesh fits your shape. I did not add much to the outfit itself, only a mask, wings and shoes and one of the jewelry sets of my brother Dahriel. The “Angelical Black” set comes with collar, crown, arm parts, earrings and a ring. The “Chain Lust” outfit was the perfect basic for my dark fantasys and if you now became curious what else you can find at Devious Mind, just take the taxi over to the Mainstore (TAXI: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/deviousMind/98/26/30). The sim as well is worth a visit! From my photographer side I just can tell you it is a paradise for making pictures as well!!!

Natzuka Full

Lately I was talking to Natzuka Milandrovic, a very close friend of mine and we came across the new ‘trend’ of combining fetish elements to high fashion, couture and avantgarde. If I remember back, when I started modeling in SL it was not even to think about and nowadays more and more designer and agencies try to do that. After a while she told me about a casting, that as well requested stylings with fetish parts and she showed me the outfit she made by herself for this casting. I totally fell in love with and after I told her that she was so kind and gave it to me with some poses that are made for this cool outfit.

As I saw the name of the outfit and the poses I had to grin and immediately I had the song “Paranoid” from Back Sabbath (linked above) stuck in my mind. So as I was styling the outfit, I listened to it most of the time and maybe that’s why the styling became a bit… crazy.

Natzuka Half

The outfit is named “Paranoid” and so is the pose set as well 😉 Nat founded a brand for all her different creations called Flighty Pixels. For this brand she did not set herself any boarders so I definately will keep my eyes on what she will create 😉

The “Paranoid” outfit contains a corset, the panty stripe some lace at the chest and the huge cool head-piece. I only added soe socks, the “Gothic Platforms” from L&B and the “Elle” hair from Zibska. The amazing arm tattoos are made by Talyia Tarber for her new brand The Makeup Artist. The amazing spades that cover the nipples, the front chest and the left eye are part of the “Spades” makeup and tattoo layers from Nuuna’s.

Natzuka Poses

With this interesting and cool outfit from Flighty Pixels Creative and the poses by Flighty Pixel Poses, Nat built a great base for her new brand. She already made quite a few poses besides the “Paranoid” set and I am really curious with what she will come up next 😉

The Water Fairy that wanted to Fly

Today I have something very special for you…

Yesterday I got an outfit from the October’s Trending Fashion Chamber, from October Bettencourt, owner and designer of Captive Designs. The outfit is called “Snakeskin Jumper”, made in brown and green tones. As I put it on and looked at it for a while, I thought that many people will style it just like a casual outfit and I wanted to try something different… And for some strange reason suddenly a steam punk fairy came into my mind… I know that this 2 words usually do not go together well but … it got stuck in my mind. The “Snakeskin Jumper” comes with mesh pants, a short layer and the awesome huge neck collar. I only added a fishnet bolero… or that what was left from it*grins* and those wonderful steam punk wings of the “Fallen Aviator” outfit  from E-Clipse.

The hair is one of the latest releases from Element’ Hair with the name “Camille” and the “Elise” ankle boots are from L&B. To make the steam punk feeling perfect I used the “Guildio” glasses from Crie Style.

While I was styling, I was talking to Malicia Python, owner nd designer of Silken Moon, on Skype. She is working on a special custom skin for me and she TPed over to my home to show me what she did new. While we were talking, I was arranging the scene and had pulled out the swing that I found longer ago and never used before. I was sitting on it and had still a white background and no idea for a picture yet. Suddenly Malicia said why not something fantasy? And we started to search for backgrounds. She showed a super nice one. I loaded it up to second life and she surprised me again with a curved background prim to have more depth in my pic. While I was snapping and crashing because of the shadows all the time I told her, how much I would like to learn more about PS and about some tricks and tips and I showed hr some pictures I really like. As she would talk about the weather, she suddenly started explaining to me, what I could do and try to make my pics more unique and more customized. She told me about features of PS I never heard of before and for me it was like … I do not know how to put it, it was kinda like a little child that left the house for the first time… there are so many possibilities and tricks… before I realized it was 4AM in the morning… I went to bed. The next morning I could not wait to sit in front of my PC and try what I learned the night before and after some hours… after I thought it was finished I could not wait to show it to Malicia and show her what I did with her advises… The results you can see in the 2 pictures of this post *smiles super happy*

Then she suddenly came up with a sweet short novel for this pics and style and that I will not hide from you!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for teaching, helping and making such a nice story for the blog Malicia :)!

The Water Fairy that wanted to Fly

ONCE upon a time there was a water fairy, she loved her fellow water beings, but what she loved most was the birds that flew over the lake. She sighed and said „I wish I could fly, too“ A water spirit heard her and felt like her longing would make her an easy prey. He told her he could give her wings, but this would have a price she must be really willing to pay.

The Fairy did not hesitate one moment. She followed the water spirit to his cave where he plucked her left eye out and put it into his own socket. The poor fairy was in pain, not only her missing eye hurt badly also her back felt like it was going to break. And even worse: as her wings grew, she could not breathe under water anymore. She swam up to the surface and gasped for air. The water spirit followed her and cackled as he saw her cry, because she realized her silly wish had banned her from home forever. As she wished for something that was not her nature.

And even today, when you come to the lake by moonlight, you sometimes see the fairy staring into the lake, where she could see her loved ones with her eye that was left with the water spirit.

But now lets take a closer look on the “Demonica” outfit first. The outfit comes as a full outfit and you only have to add skin, hair and shoes. the great skirt, open in the front, that is hold by amazing detailed leather straps makes a wonderful female attitude. The leather pants, gloves and as well the top are covered by amazing high quality textures. The whole outfit goves an awesome strong and warrior looking touch. What caught my eyes as well is the huge collar with that amazing chains the really shine in the lights and give the whole style a sexy touch as well 😉

Detention at MVW Academy

Last days I walked through the MVW Academy corridors and suddenly I heard a mega off one of the class rooms. As I went closer I peeked through the little window in the door and saw half of a class running around, shouting. Some where pulling each others hairs and some were throwing stuff against each other… I opened the door with a light smile as this reminded me of my own high school years. If there was no teacher the students freak out and start doing crap. And my memories were completed as I entered the room. All of a sudden it went quiet and all eyes were focusing me, in an asking way, what I would do here… As I started explaining my memories and that it lightly made me sad that they all went so quiet, I saw out of my eye corner in my back one girl who tried to place some glue on the teachers chair and as they wanted to prove me wrong a little paper ball hit my forehead. The suddnely I saw them both – Pow and Temptress –  pulling each others hair… I grabbed the 2 girls by the arms and pulled them closer looking at them… Finally I came to an idea… if they chose to put me in the teachers role so badly (yes I still do not feel like an adult most of the time :p), I decided I could get some detention out as well and told them, that I think they would have too much free time and that I can change that for a while…

I told them that I wanna have 2 looks created in the next 15 min. The first look should be kinda city chic style, like they would go out for shopping in London, Rome or Mailand. The second look should be a crazy future fashion… nothing that quite did happen, more what could be fashion in the future… and on the 2 pictures you can see the results :p. The did a pretty good job on the tasks and I wanted to share the funny story along with the nice results as well 🙂

So MVW Academy students… be careful how you show you have too much free time in the future *grins evil*

I really had fun and a special thank you to Pow Curameyer and Temptress Fallen for playing along the victims so cool, to make this funny story happen 🙂
