TUNES

“Leaving lepidoptera… Please, don’t touch the display,
Little boy, aha cute! Moving to the next aisle we have
Arachnida, the spiders, our… Finest collection.
This friendly little devil is the heptothilidi,
Unfortunately harmless. Next to him, the nasty licosa
Raptoria, his tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of
The skin (laugh). And here, my prize, the Black
Widow. Isn’t she lovely?… And so deadly. Her kiss is
Fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake.
You see her venom is highly neurotoxic, which is to say
That it attacks the central nervous system causing
Intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in
Breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions
And, finally… Death. You know what I think I love the
Most about her is her inborn need to dominate,
Possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation
Of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the
Species she kills and eats him…(laugh) oh, she is
Delicious… And I hope he was! Such power and dignity
… Unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a
Slice of personal philosophy, I feel that man has ruled
This world as a stumbling dimented child-king long
Enough! And as his empire crumbles, my precious Black
Widow
shall rise as his most fitting successor!”

Surrender?

TUNES

Even though I know what I’m looking for
She’s got a brick wall behind her door
I’d travel time and confess to her
But I’m afraid she’d shoot the messenger

Every word, every thought, every sound
Every touch, every smile, every frown
All the pain we’ve endured until now
All the hope that I lost, you have found

Surrender

[- Billy Talent -]

I am still fooling around with the new “Ceylon 3.0” head from LeLUTKA. I wanted to try the classic button on the HUD to see what the head looks like if I choose that genius option, plus I wanted to see how my face mods (which are all not yet EvoX compatible) look on that face and what they to do it 😉

For my set I used some of the new group gifts, which DRD offer for their new store opening. You won’t believe it but every section has its own group gift!So you can get 5 at once at the moment!!! What is even more cool.. they packed some of their older designs into a huge container (you can find that at the right side of the building at the landing spot) calling it “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”. “Some” might be a little underestimated as you can find like 700+ items in there and DRD will keep adding stuff. Now the unbelievable… it only costs 4000L$ and you will get a lifetime free update! So the price might grow up over the time, but if you get it now… you get all the coming goodies for free!

Now you might want to know where that kick-ass cool outfit comes from… it is a mix and match of 2 AsteroidBox designs. The shirt you will find at the actual round of Anthem while the shorts should be at the main store by now.

I still see so many cool things in that “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”… I should get back to my platform and build some more scenes with them for new pictures 😉

New LeLUTKA Evolution X Line for Skin Fair!

LeLUTKA Evolution X 3.0 is here!

Right in time for the Skin Fair, LeLUTKA brings us again new and exciting heads! This time we have 3 new heads to choose from: Ceylon, Avalon and Briannon.

Today I would like to show you Ceylon 3.0 with all its wonderful new features. When I unpacked the new head I already was completely overwhelmed by all the boxes I found in the box already. So more unpacking and with each box my jaw dropped more… besides the content we all did know from the Evolution line 2.5, we get a lot more of makeup, super cute elf ears (which as well have the same awesome piercings as the human ears). then I spied something  called “EARS – lel EvoX” in 4 different tones and tattoos for the ears in one of the Add-On boxes and got really excited – OMG!

Ok, calm down Wicca, unpack the other Add-On boxes, maybe for once read the note cards and see what you can do with it 🙂

We get a lot of new features while some older features were granted an update. Lets’s see whats new…

For the head we have new HD skins & makeups on a new UV Map, especially made for even more high definition, the cute new elf ears and the lacrimal and tear line were joined to be the eye socket now. For all those new things we certainly got a few new buttons on the HUD as well 😉 While Omega Appliers still work for the eyes they are not an option anymore for the rest of the head.

When I first changed to the new Ceylon 3.0 head I was frightened as I found my whole face pulled over the top of my head – I nearly panicked, but then I reminded myself – NEW X Line! Glam Affair as well joined on that new venture and released for the skin fair various new skins for that Evolution X Line. I chose the new “Rika” skin along with the new body line of skins (THANK YOU Aida for being so generous ♥). Here we go, I have a human face again and what a sweet and cute one! Certainly I had to try the elf ears too for my first post and even the new tattoos you can apply on your ears now separately from you basic skin! You can stack the skin and the tattoos the same way as we can do it for the face, too. Like I already mentioned, there is a lot of incredible makeup coming with your new “X 3.0” head, I really had a hard time choosing just one for my first post… the final decision fell on the “LeLUTKA.EvoX.Eyeliner.042” combines with the “LeLUTKA.EvoX.Eyeshadow.042”

So with all the new features can I never use my existing BoM inventory? Does this upgrade make all my existing face tattoos and makeups useless? Hell NO! I have to admit I was scared about that for a second too before I saw this little new button on the HUD:

How cool is that?!? You just can switch between the new Evo X and the Classic Evolution features! That means you still can use all our existing BoM skins, tattoos and makeups, but you as well get the option to use the new even more high definition designs. I really do love that as it does give you a lot of possibility and you can as well bridge the time – if you need more than the uber-awesome palette you get with the new heads – until more and more Evo X designs will be released. For todays post I certainly go with the new Evo X option 😉 LeLUTKA again is pushing the limits for avatar enhancement with this new Evo X line of mesh heads – they broke free from the Second Life UV map and made their own way more detailled and shaper UV map to give us a even more awesome look!

I will look into the other 2 heads very soon and see what will be my new favorite of the Evo X line! You can as well make your choice, if you run over to the Skin Fair and just try 😉

“In 2077, what makes someone a criminal? Getting caught!”

[- Cyberpunk 2077, by Johnny Silverhand -]

It is Cyber Fair again! ACCESS again runs another round of the Cyber Fair at the moment with amazing designers and creations for all those who have a sci-fi, cyber or cyberpunk addiction like me 😉

I would like to spotlight some of my person highlights (there will be more soon in my nest posts!!)… I love to mix and match looks and so I sometimes break down outfits into their single pieces to get a more unique and personalized look. Sometimes designers do not like that, especially if they made full outfits, they like to have them being showcased together. If I blog for a certain designer and only want to showcase their exclusive releases, I usually keep them together and try to used them in mix and matches later on. But since I just wandered over the fair to get some more inspiration, I was able to do my first look completely free from any obligations and duties just having fun and fooling around with all the ‘goodies’ 😉

Let’s start with the awesome jacket. The “Thrasher Jacket” was made by A&Y one of my favorite designers if it comes to cyber or science fiction looks. I love the her creative ideas and the way how she does texture her designs. It has a certain shininess and the materials are truly amazing without being too ‘glowy’ or light. That makes it very easy to work with lights, projectors and environments to have a cool atmosphere without washing out the colors or textures – something I seriously adore. With mesh it is always difficult to layer things and I LOVE the designs of Jackie Graves for that. she makes incredible amazing clothing on layers and tattoo layers. Even with being only a layers I rarely saw better details and highlights on leather or latex creations. I wanted to stay human this time, but still have a futuristic lightly extreme look going on and the “Drone Corset” from ::Static:: was just perfect for that. The extreme slim waist was a perfect opposite to the heavy jacket. Cyberpunk is a lot about accessories and technical replacements or better modifications of human body parts and in many movies we see a lot of extreme and colorful makeups, too.

For the eyes itself I wanted something more extreme, too and there is no better place, than Madame Noir to find such unique and extraordinary designs. She recently as well started to make really interesting and fresh mesh designs, which I as well really like (and will showcase again soon as well *grins*), but her eyes are still the most striking things for me as they really come in so many creative and different looks. And not only the styles… she offers applier for nearly every popular body plus an omega version AND mesh/layer eyes too – in all colors you can imagine so that they really fit into every look. In the credits below you can see, I used a lot of the new releases of the Cyber Fair, but there is so much more! You really should take a look for yourself while I am preparing for more awesome and crazy cyber ideas or looks – probably more shopping as well 😉

Maybe we meet soon at the ACCESS Cyber Fair!

“Well, everything’s a lesson, isn’t it?”

TUNES

“There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill winter bastard though dry. The Korova Milkbar was a milk-plus mesto, and you may, O my brothers, have forgotten what these mestos were like, things changing so skorry these days, and everybody very quick to forget, newspapers not being read much neither.”

[- Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange  -]

I do not know how that happened but when I was ready dressed, ,I instantly got a Clockwork Orange feeling. I do love that movie, but didn’t see it for along time. So when I sat down and started to post work those pictures I had to watch it again to get the right feeling for it *grins* That ideas obviously was the reason why I added the bloody bat to my look and put myself in that grunge backyard. I started with the super cool “Nova Overalls” outfit from AsteroidBox, when I realized that they as well do have new shoes that completely fit to that outfit. While I was playing with the huge HUD and all its possibilities (maaany different textures and as well you can hide the shirt!) I discovered the striped version and remembered, that I had gloves that had a stripe option as well from {PSYCHO:Byts}. Certainly I needed some finger bandages as well to get the cool side of the “droogies” look. While I was looking through my L’Emporio Folder for those finger bandages, I saw that they had so cool new releases as well and the hat totally fit into my look – the cool collar as well! If I had planned to mix and match so many of my favorite designers I never would have made it, but this time it fell into place so easily… I have no clue how that happened, but I love it!

As soon as I put on that mega amazing veil from Nefekalum Tattoos (yes – it really is a tattoo with materials!) I did know I have to find those sharp kinda trademark lashes, which Alex had on just one eye in the movie – I found that at Shiny Stuffs. sadly I could not apply it just to one eye, like it originally was on the left eye only.

It didn’t happen for a long time that the imagination for a picture or story came so fast to my mind, after putting on just the first 2 or 3 items and I really enjoyed my journey in the past with that movie again. I have to say it again seemed very up-to-date to our times at the moment if you get the essence of that movie – that felt kinda scary, but I do believe in the human race to not make the future as dark again as it was in the past!

“You want change with no sacrifice. You want peace with no struggle. The world doesn’t work like that.”

[- David, Allegiant, 2016 -]

Germany seems to be weird sometimes, especially our government. Now that we have our Covid numbers going down constantly, even with the new virus variations… they can’t wait until the numbers are as low as the experts ask for – no we have to break open schools and kindergartens as fast as we can. I mea i see the problems, do not get me wrong, but what does it help if we are back to sky high numbers in the next 3 weeks and then have to lock down everything again?!? Can we not just wait like 2 weeks more until the numbers are low enough before we plan things like that? Especially as it was clear, that the numbers dropped really fast when the schools finally were closed again? Would it not make sense to put some effort into the internet and into getting the needed hardware to the kids who are not having any still? The online platform for Bavarian schools (Mebis) looks and acts like they would have been made in the Stone Age some when and instead of working on it it feels like they counted on the fact that the summer will kill the virus and it is gone after that. They had oe year now to fix things and besides the fact they allowed Microsoft Teams, nothing really has changed – and that wasn’t the work of our government *facepalms* It seems more important to hold on exams and schedules instead of taking care of our kids and their health. We all know now, that the kids do not get symptoms but they can carry the virus around secretly and infect all their family. I just don’t understand all those rules and requirements anymore. WE can have the kids in school, shoulder on shoulder, but we cannot have theaters and cinemas open who definitely have way better hygiene management for infection control, than any school has – at our school we do not even have warm water for the kids to wash their hands as requested. But sure, lets open the schools again for 3 or 4 weeks to again close down the whole country as the new virus variations push the numbers up again – If they keep acting like that and with the not working vaccine concept (we simply do not have enough yet and some do not have a 100% protection – not to mention there is not even one yet for kids under 16 years, which is allowed officially) we will go back and forth until summer 2022 🙁

Anyways, lets take a look on todays pictures and designs 😉

Again I am in a cyberpunk mood – no wonder we just had the Mainframe event! I am super sorry for posting this so late but lately my RL is completely upside down. My mom got a new knee, and I still have to take care of her, cook, clean and walk her dog at least 2 times a day while I try to shuffle my work around as much as I can. Sometimes I am just dead in the evening when I am done with all my day work and I instantly fall asleep on the couch even if I made me some coffee to stay awake for some SL work.

But I still love making pictures and I try my best to not come too much behind with my blogging schedule 😉

Like I said sadly the Mainframe event is already over, but many of the releases I am wearing were made for that and now should have found their ways to the designers main stores I suppose.

“I lurk in the Shadows…”

Made for Eclipse Magazine // January 2021 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_january_2021

TUNES

I lurk in the shadows
Moonlight touching the ground
I creep in the bushes
Await for you my love
My pale skin feels so cold
I need your warmth beside me
I feel your beating heart
You’re swept into my arms
Oh how I love this night
And the many nights to come
For a thousand lifetimes
I’ll make you my own
I am immortal, the living legend
One thousand years gone, the fallen angel
I am immortal, the living legend
One thousand years gone, hell’s incarnation

“Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It’s a rule.”

“Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It’s a rule.”

[- Laurell K. Hamilton -]

For the current issue of the Eclipse Magazine, again I was allowed to showcase a role play genre. My choice this time was Vampires. I wanted to cover the more traditional and vintage side of it as well as the modern one.

For the more traditional, Victorian one I had the great pleasure, to get some company from Vivien Delancoure. It is always fun to do picture with friends, but usually I just do not dare to ask, as sometimes I take ages until I have my final pose, shot and background. I hate to waste others peoples time. With Vivien it was different. She is a blogger as well, making wonderful pictures and creates most of her poses by herself – Just take a look at her Flickr HERE. So she knows how long it can take and that made me brave enough to ask her, if she would like to join me for a picture. Her style is usually goth-romantic or dark romantic, which already was perfect for what I was going for. She was so sweet and patient and made the whole shoot to a lot of fun combined with a lovely chitchat 😉 I have a feeling, that this will be not our last shoot together as it really was awesome to work with her.

Thank you Vivien, for your time, patience and a new growing friendship I do not want to miss again 😉

My style you can find – like usual – below this post. For Vivien’s look, just take a look at her blog HERE.

Casting a Spell?

TUNES

She’s just testing her wings and if you give in to her, you’ll be just another feather in her cap-she’ll drop you in a flash.
She’s casting a spell, she’s casting a spell, well if she’s casting a spell, I can cast one as well.
So I said. “No, no, no, I ain’t falling for this!
This girl is built to tease; she’s only testing the efficiency of her kiss.”
She’s casting a spell.
Well, if she’s casting a spell; I can cast one as well.
She wants to check out how you check out on her test-bed:
Will you get in her book or will you go right to her head?
She’s casting a spell.
Well, if she’s casting a spell; I can cast one as well.
And so, I cast it right back on her, don’t you know my luck; she fell under the influence and then the thunder struck.
Now we’re casting a spell, we’re casting a spell-you can cast one as well!
