LOTD 09/28/2015 – Today at GizzA

Gizza 1

Today was a cold but very sunny day. That inspired me to a more autumn, kinda ‘last sunbeam catching’ look.

The new “Sienna Ornamental” set from GizzA felt like the right choice for today.

The short leather skirt with the 2 slits definitely is an eyecatcher especially in gold and the amazing halterneck top with the deep neckline and the amazing wide and floating bottom is just a perfect match.

To add some more fashion to it, I put the “Quartz Glasses” from LeeZu and one of my favourite hairstyles from EMO-tions called “Rosi”.

News from LeeZu, EMO-tions & Finesmith

LeeZu+EMO-tions+Vista+WW 01

Today I am very happy to showcase one of the latest releases from LeeZu. The new “Tangled Top” is an amazing summer addition to every girls wardrobe. The top is just made of chains only and just covers the minimum what is needed to not look naked 😉

I am totally in love with it, because this top gives so many options for mix and matches and simply is a super sexy must have. Some of you maybe remind the amazing “La GOa Top” as well from LeeZu, wich only came as a normal avatar layer, but the new “Tangled Top” has some more great options! It comes as a normal avatar layer, as a tatoo layer, PLUS it has appliers for the Slink, the TMP and OMEGA compatible mesh bodies. On top of that you can choose between a color and a black & white version.

The wonderful “Straight Denim Jeans – 2” are from Vista, yes you heard right, Vista which does the wonderful AOs that many of us use mostly ;).

The do clothing as well (I already posted some of them in the past) and the super tight jeans come in many different versions. You have the choice of 5 different sleeve length from long to short, so you can wear boots or shoes as you like and you always will be able to have the right height for your pants. The jeans as well come with  a HUD to change the colors of the jeans to 6 different ones.

For the shoes I am wearing one of our own ones and the first original mesh made shoes for the Slink high mesh feet. The “Aria Stilettos” are available in different colors to mix and match them to your likings and style.

LeeZu+EMO-tions+Vista+WW 02

Since I am a friend of swag casual styles I added the “4Minute” jacket to my look. The jacked might be an older one, but it is the best I found in that style, which lets me still modify it to make it fit best for my look.

The great “Ashanti” hair is the contribution of EMO-tion for the actual On9 event. This short and ethnic hair just was the perfect addition for the look. With the loose hanging braids this braided updo should not miss in your closet ;).

Last but not least I would like to drag your attention closer to my fae on the amazing new “Malka” set from Finesmith. The set contains earrings, nose septum and a crown (not used in this post). The combination of filigree metals and a little gemstone at the bottom, matched the “Tangled Top” from LeeZu in a perfect way.

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Our first rigged, original Clothing Piece!

Zoomy Vest close

Today I have a very special reason for my post… a very special vest for a very special friend!

Many of you might know we are doing original mesh accessories for quite some time now but we never had a rigged clothing part yet… until now 🙂

I am very happy that I can announce we are now able to even make rigged original clothing!

What makes it even more special for me is that our first design was made for a very special Lady!

Zoomy Bluebird, our reigning Miss CoC 2015.

And even that contest is the reason for our new “Zoomy Vest”.

It was not even long time planned, that we make something for Zoomy. We were working on the national costume for Miss SL Poland 2015 (yes, that one will be showcased soon too I just need to finish the pics :p) when Zoomy was in my IMs and told me she was searching for a cropped vest for one of her finale stylings. She said she looked already for quite some time and could not find what she wanted or the vest was not cooperating with the rest of her styling. The more we talked the more I got an idea, but I did not dare to ask her about as I did not wanna bother or obrude her too  much. Then she all of sudden said she never would dare to ask me to make one, as she would know I would be busy with the gown anyways. You cannot imagine my smile in that moment… Zoomy was always a very dear friend to me over time, a crazy sister in mind and someone who always understood my weirdness. So you can imagine which honor it would be to create a piece for such an amazing woman!

So I told her that I would LOVE to design something for her, but that I have to ask Veo and Red as well. We are a team in creating and already were working on other designs so I could not decide that on my own. I was very nervous what Veo would say about it though.

Next day as soon as I saw him, I jumped on him, making super puppy eyes and told him about the idea for Zoomy’s cropped vest. I scribbled my idea on a piece of paper and showed him and he just nodded and said “Oh yeah we can do that”.

 You can imagine, it did not too even one second to jump back in Zoomy’s IM and tell her the good news.

With her special style, the vest had to be in a certain look to mactch the rest of the styling.

So while i was finishing the gown for JJ, Veo worked on the vest and not too much later I got my favourite IM from him that said “I guess I am done!”

When he uploaded it and showed it to me I had goosebumps… that was exactly what I had in mind and it was fully rigged and everything!

The “ZoomyVest” was born!

I grabbed it and immediately went to Photoshop to make the textures. Like you can see the styling was extremely colorful and wild so the vest had to match in there. I made 3 different textures and as it ould have been fate one even was close to the pants, which I never saw before 😉

Wicca's Wardrobe - Zoomy Vest (all)

Besides the 3 colors for Zoomy I already made some more, because I totally fell in love with that vest :p.

So we just had to get Zoomy to kinda custom tailor the vest onto her body with the dress under it, that again was a huge fun time when we were all standing on the platform and uploaded a bunch of different sizes until we had got it right ;). Somehow it felt like a real fitting for a super model*giggles*

 It was a very special moment for me and as well for us all at Wicca’s Wardrobe. When Zoomy then, a few days later even won the Miss CoC 2015, you can imagine how much we were excited and happy.

And now I am even more happy, that I may announce that the “Zoomy Vest” now is in store in 8 different textures to match as many different looks s you can imagine from casual to steampunk and even to the zoomylishious new style trend KAWA Couture!

Zoomy Vest 1

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.

Originally made for the Burlesque Event now the Amazing “Sina Jacket” is available in 7 different colors.  The jacket has a wonderful vintage touch. With the open front you can mix and match it with many other things to create the perfect look for you.

At the back of the jacket you will find a cute pin-up print wich underlines the vintage look of the jacket and with the high collar and the two little flower looking ornaments on the front this jacket is a totally must have for every wardrobe, as it can be worn in so many different stylings. To show this amazing back I included a back view on the picture above. For the shirt I chose the Oui Oui Shir as well from LeeZu.

 Another new release comes from Finesmith. The “Kitaro” set. A beautiful set made of golden, black and fabric looking parts. The set contains basically 2 sets as you have two pairs of earrings, three necklaces, two bracelets, a huge headpiece and a ring.  The set as well provides a gems HUD wich let you change the gem parts of the whole set to different colors.

LOTD 09/10/2014 – Autumn with PurpleMoon & LeeZu

PurpleMoon 01

Today I am very happy to showcase a look made with items from PurpleMoon  & LeeZu, 2 of my favourite designers for years.

The days get shorter, the trees get more and more colored in red and yellow tones, so my mood was totally autumn today 😉 .

The amazing “Erica” jacket, wich includes the top is made by PurpleMoon. It comes with a huge HUD, that let you change the jacket and the shirt separately to various colors.

PurpleMoon 02

The “Milan”pants from LeeZu are one of those things, that I like to wear again and again. The are timeless and you as well can choose between a long and a short version. Today I chose the short version as I wanted to wear the new “Croco Boots” from PurpleMoon. The “Croco Boots” you will not find at the main store for now, as it is the contribution for the Instruments event of October 2014.

Gothic Moments with LeeZu!

Leezu  - Aurora 001

Anyways if furniture or fashion LeeZu always amazes us with her creations. Today I have the pleasure to showcase one of her latest creations, the “Aurora” gown.

This delicate and elegant gown is a firework of textures and fabrics. The bodice is made with a black satin looking fabric. The right side has an amazing line over the shoulder and the left is totally blank what gives a very sexy touch.  The belly is covered by some filigree white lace on a black base. The black skirt is covered by a wonderful white laced top skirt. A beautiful brooch decorated the left side of the bodice 🙂

The jewelry I decided to wear with the “Aurora” gown comes from Baboom. For this stunning gown I wanted to have something that is not blingy or too shiny but still something special. The “Xena Set was exactly the right addition. With the unusual shape and the cool non symmetric wholes it complemented the gown in a very special way. The set contains bracelets and a collar.

The incredible hat was made by [AD] Creations. The “Sophie Mesh HEaddress” added some more elegance and some serious mystic feelings to the whole look. With the horns, the black roses, the steel cage in front of the face and the veil parts it really made a great finish for my today’s look 😉

To underline that black and white idea behind it I put on some of my favourite nails from Nailed It – the “Cracked Set”.

LOTD 07/14/2014 – News from LeeZu!

LeeZu, Emotions 01

LeeZu time again!

Again LeeZu surprises us with amazing new releases. I already blogged the “BonBon” dress, wich was made for the FFL (http://wiccamerlin.de/lotd-06242014-leezu-meets-miamai/) and today I would like to showcase some more amazing news by LeeZu.

Let’s starts with the “Cora Ruffleskirt” This sexy short mesh skirt as well was part of the FFL 2014 contributions of LeeZu. I love short skirts but as well, in my opinion, it is more sexy to cover the legs under them with something like a sheer panty hose or stockings. There are times to show those long pixel legs and then there is times where to cover them 😉 . I remembered the “Brigitte Body Tights”,  as well from LeeZu and it was the perfect addition to the “Cora Ruffleskirt”.

For the top I wanted something cool and red. I had a special love for the “Dekannche Top” before and I know, that I used it some times before but never in red 😉 .

LeeZu, Emotions 02

The boots are a cool new release from LeeZu as well. The “Mila Boots” are super cool mesh boots. They have the possibility to change the color of the laces with a HUD and as well you can resize them with a built-in resizer. Those boots are a mixture of heavy boots, with a wonderful detailed texture and the lower leg part with those huge holes makes them even fit to more than just a normal casual style 😉

LeeZu, Emotions 04

The amazing fire-red hair is called “Tariel” and comes from EMO-tions. With the sweet little tails that fall down over the shoulders and the chest and the pulled back hair at the top it was the right style to complete my look. Certainly the hair is available in more than just the fire-red tone. With the fatpack you will get all the amazing colors that we know from EMO-tions.

For the location I decided to try the actual sim environment of Bryn Oh. With that amazing dark and creepy surrounding, the look was totally matching in 😉 I explored the sim and was send home dead a few times :p . You will find killer bunnies and spooky looking dogs wich will hunt you down if you are not careful enough and keep moving. For me it was a funny and interesting trip over the sim and I just can advise you to try it as well 😉

The other Me…

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 001

I have seen another sky
I have climbed another tree
I have wished another star,
above another star lit sea

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

And I have seen another sunrise,
and another lightning storm
I’m not just the me you see
You see another me was born

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

Somewhere I’m happy
I’m smiled at understood
In another Place I lift my face,
not hide it in a hood

[Lyrics by Jim Sturgess]

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 002

First of all I would like to thank Malicia for the time and the base idea for this pictures. She came up with the mirror idea and as well donated her mirror to the shooting 😉

We both wearing the newest gown release of LeeZu. The “Saphire” gown is a fully mesh made gown. It is available in many different colors but for the post we had to choose 2 and so we decided to go with plum for me and black for Malicia. The wonderful shoulder piece is to add single so you can even decide to go with or without it. As well part of the outfit the little hat is. The amazing little hat with the tentacles just adds the little extra elegant and couture touch.

The jewelry I chose to wear is made by Lazuri for the MVW 2014 contest. The “MVW 2014 Eva Luxury” set is an amazing set containing 2 types of earrings, bracelets, rings and a wonderful necklace made of 3 parts wich gives you the option to wear it in 3 different ways. As for all the amazing Lazuri jewelry the set is menu driven and you can recolor all parts to kinda customize the set to your likings and needs.

For the poses we needed some mirrored ones. For a long time I asked myself,why some pose makers made these and the only reason I could think of was, that you carry something in your hand that might be on the wrong side for the pose. But today I discovered, that they can be very useful if you want to do pictures like that as well 😉 So i went with poses from *PosESioN* and Morgane Batista.

The shoot and preparing was fun and I hope Mal will be with me for some more posts in the future 😉 It is rare if you meet people, that you go along so well and SecondLife gifted me a wonderful friend not only in SL anymore. Thank you Mal, for believing in me and being such an amazing friend for me in both worlds 🙂 .
