“Oh, are you doing magic? Let’s see it, then.”

[J.K Rowling – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone]

Like I did mention in my last post, the “World of Magic” event sadly is over, but I still want to post all those amazing things – it gives me the feeling it would still going on :p . I am sure you will find all of the creations at the main stores of all brands by now.

This time I have the whole scene built out of designs of the event and for the clothing I as well only used items from the “World of Magic” except the shoes.

I love Trouble Dethly’s events, he always picks interesting themes and does invest a huge effort in the sims and event places and builds. What I do love as well are his ‘Fashion Theaters”. To me that is the future of fashion shows in Second Life, as most of the main grind users are sick and tired of boring runway shows. Every thing has its time and realistic, real life like looking fashion shows had their time in the past. When they were new, many people went there and the audience was more than just 10 to 15 models and designers. I remember times, when we had to cap sims at 45 people, to make sure shows could run smoothly, or we even had to have 2 different sims beside each other – one for the audience and one for the models. Those times are gone. I really think there were too  many of those shows in a short time. Certainly there are a few agencies left who still try to do shows, but designers as well found a different way for marketing with all the monthly events. I would not choose one over the other, both ways have/had their advantages and times.

The “Fashion Theater” that Trouble more or less invented in Second Life, combines fashion shows and theater. Usually we have different scenes like in a real theater, and in the beginning of each scene the credits getting read out before the actual scene starts. So it is as well informative about fashion, designers get highlighted and used decor gets it’s spotlight, but at the same time it is entertaining with the story itself. Even as a model – I do have to admit – it is a lot of fun as you prepare different, it is a new challenge. You style up like you would do for a normal fashion show, but with posing you have to be way more creative and it is way more work intense to find the right poses, or even short animations, for the story that is going on, as your character has certain “tasks” to implement in terms of acting what the story determines.

Thereafter was the first Fashion Theater I did and it was a huge success. Back then we did a post apocalyptic version of the ‘Taming of the Shrew”. The story was adapted to the different genre and lightly changed, but the essence was the same. The last one we did was “The Tale of the Three Brothers”, an adaption or a tribute to the wizarding fairytale told to young witches and wizards in the world set by JK Rowling. Within canon, it is believed to have been written by Beedle the Bard and published as part of his works called “The Tales of Beedle the Bard.” Most believe it to be a story that teaches children the virtue of humility and wisdom. Others, feel that it is in reference to the Deathly Hallows. For the Potter fans, the concept made it’s debut in the seventh book and are considered three highly powerful magical artefacts.This time we had a very small cast, but we had tons of fun.

I would like to thank Silly Avro, Luka Benton, Sungyoung Holloway, Redclaw Inshan and Trouble Dethly for an amazing time, lot of fun rehearsals and 3 wonderful evenings of acting. Trouble had the most work since he wrote the whole thing and had to coordinate our chaos troupe and he did a hell of a job with that.

I can’t wait for the next one and I do not want to tell too much yet but… I have a feeling it will have to do something with doing a tribute to GoT and I will keep my fingers crossed to be casted as the Dragon Lady!

Wicca & the Hungarian Horntail

Picture made for “A Harry Potter Coffee Table Book” (https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/harry_potter_coffee_book)

I had the great pleasure to be part of a Harry Potter Coffee Table Book, hosted by Eclipse Magazine. The book is a photograph collection inspired by iconic scenes from the Harry Potter series and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Many amazing photographers and as well icons of mine contributed to the book and the more I felt honored and mega happy that Trouble asked me if I would be part as well.

I picked the “Harry in the first task versus the Hungarian Horntail” from the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire episode, after Trouble said we just should take the scenes as inspiration and I could be a female as well.

I love dragons and so that scene was right down my alley. I had something in mind, that I wanted to do and it turned out way harder than I thought. I never experimented with fire like that before and as well to find the right angle wasn’t as easy as I imagined. The next problem I came across was all my dragons had some poses but none worked out in the angle I wanted to shoot – I nearly lost my nerves about it *snickers* One of my old dragins from Manticore finally did what I wanted!

After some time – after I pulled out several hairs, bit fingernails and cursed like mad – it looked like, as it would come to a good end 😉 Gone where the thoughts of giving up and getting frustrated – I did it! At least I really love what I could come up with for such an amazing book of all those incredible photographers!

Thanks a lot Trouble, for that amazing opportunity!

Once again you challenged me – Once again I learned some new techniques!

 

Winter Echoes in Spring

I am not in gown moods too often, but if it is such a stunning gown like the “Yvaines Garment” from Enfant Terrible, even my smooth and romantic side comes through 😉

When I put on the gown, I immediately got a dreamy princess feeling. I added the amazing “Winter Fur” as well made by LeEnfant Terrible – I am sure no pixel animal had to die for it and it was just handmade by the amazing designer 😉

The incredible amazing head-piece was made my Eudora3D. It contains the headpiece, face chains and a left and right side part. For my post I used the silver one but you can get a gold version as well.

The hair certainly had to fit with the head-piece and as well I wanted it to go with the fantasy and dreamy idea. My final choice for the hair fell on the “Helga” hair style from EMO-tions. Usually I use a blonde tone but for my dreamy ice princess, this time I chose to go with a white hair color.

The awesome “Wassail” necklace, which perfectly matched the headpiece, comes from Empyrean Forge. I adore their jewelry a lot, as it is always so detailed that you have to zoom in really close to see all the amazing details.

The location is one of my favourites as well – Winter Moon. The whole year you have a winter themed sim installation with all kind of different corners for amazing pictures.

Mystical, Dangerous, Enchanting – Antares! News from Angel Dessous!!!

(Outfit: Angel Dessous – “Antares” /black, Model: Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Barney Roundel)

Lately I had the great honor to model for the advertise of one of Angel Dessous latest creations – “Antares”.

This gown really will turn heads. “Antares” is a gown for the brave fashionista that dares to show character and difference. The amazing back part that is connected to the back of the neck can be worn in 2 different versions. One with the high round spike shape and the high neck collar and one with out the round high part that has only huge flexible spikes in the back. The shoulders are covered by an amazing wrapped fabric that has an incredible texture. The whole gown is covered by a texture that looks kinds snake-skin print and this underlines the dangerous and mystical touch perfect. The long skirt starts at the hips with an incredible belt that also catches the theme of the outfit in its shape.

The top has a very deep neckline what gives the view on a wonderful cleavage and belly. The prim shoulder parts are wonderful continued with the attached upper arm prims that surround your arm like a snake also and the great bangles are part of the outfit too!

For sure you can purchase “Antares” not only in black. For this post I also got the ‘petrol’ version and I was wearing this one without the huge neck part to show you the second option for the upper back part. If you make your way to the Angel Dessous Mainstore you will see that there are more colors available also 😉

I really lost my heart to that gown… make sure that you take a look at the Angel Dessous Mainstore to see what color suits you best 😉
