Silent Valentine?

You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. Of all the people you will know in the lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or lose.

[Jo Coudert]

Valentine flowers, Valentine cards, Valentine cookies, Valentine this and Valentine that… every where you go, you get it rubbed right in your face wether you like it or not…

But what is with those people who would like to avoid Valentine’s da?

Maybe someone lost a beloved person and does not want to get reminded?

Maybe someone had a bad experience on Valentine’s day and tries to forget?

Maybe some people believe, that Valentine’s day only was made for the retail and do not want to support that?

What ever reason people have, I think that everyone should be able to make their own decisions about if they want to celebrate Valentine’s day or not.

I do not need  a special day to tell those I love how much I love them and I would not just do that on one special day. If I want to make my partner a little present, I do that on any day and as often as I want during the year. Sometimes it is just a little thing, maybe candy or something I saw and thought he would like it,  just a gesture or maybe just spend some precious time together. I even think it is the many little things that really show how much you do love someone else and not a huge present on a special day, that you are told by the calendar.

That brought me to today’s post as I wanted to do something different for Valentine’s day, but as well keep the typical red color 😉

So many new events started and so many new amazing creations got released, I really had a hard time to decide what I would like to wear and use for todays pictures. I ended up with a huge mix and match for my look and as well for the set.

For the outfit I chose a combination of the new “Diana” outfit from [sYs] and a new lingerie from La Perla. You certainly can wear “Diana” without a lingerie underneath but I thought it does give a nice romantic contrast to do so 😉

The awesome bracelets and the very special mask, I found at ROMP. When I tried the “Blinded” mask from Cubic Cherry, it immediately added a very intensive feeling to the whole look. With the metal look and the shaped eye contour, it did remind me on that old Roman theater masks.

The head piece is an art piece itself. It was made by LouLou Teichmann, owner and designer of Bauhaus Movement, and with the amazing details and the super sweet look, it made the perfect contrast to the mask.

I would like to drag your attention onto the hair a little more. Recently I discovered a new hair store. I am super picky with hair, especially with the textures, but when I tried my first Sintiklia Hair I was totally amazed. Not only the textures are awesome, Sintiklia has an amazing way how they create their hair at the base. You do not really need a hairbase with the way they do their end parts that meet the head and there is NO alpha issues at all! On many of their hair styles, they even include a style HUD, so that you can change the look of it and get more than one style with your hair. With the “Salma” hair, that I found at ROMP, you get a style HUD that gives you the possibility of 4 different ways how you can wear your hair! And usually you find a mirrored possibility if you have wisps of hair coming down at the front. So often I was cursing when the pose was not cooperation with my hair and I wished I would have had such an option to just change the side of the wisps. As if that would not be already awesome enough, with many of the Sintiklia hair you will get – besides the usual color HUDs – a tint color picker add-on HUD. With that you even can work on the shades of a certain color to match it perfectly to your skin and as well your look! You really should try some of their demos and see for yourself – I only can highly recommend it!

Another part of my post, which I would like to spotlight a little bit, is the sweet looking ‘daybed’ – if you call those things like that. It is a little stool with sweet ribbons and cute ruffles, that comes with many different textures. On the first view you would never believe what is behind that “cute mask” if you do not realize the little metal rings that are added to all the ribbons! Maybe you will get rough idea, if I tell you that the “Boudoir Bondage Stool” was made by Dictatorshop… ok the name might discover something already as well :p

This sweet little furniture you might imagine in a sweet girls room until you sat on it – and if you are a dork like me you enabled your RLV before as it said something about RLV and capture yourself on it *facepalms* It has a full ‘Dictatorshop known’ engine for all kind of couples and solos and for some poses it does even rezz cuffs and chains! What I liked most, you can pose solo in a non kinky way as well as you can roleplay all kind of scenes with it – private ones, which I resisted making picture of :p You still can get it, if you get you an actual Bound Box with a lot of other goodies in it at the Bound Box HQ!

I hope you enjoyed my little ‘different’ interpretation of my personal Valentine today 😉

Happy Valentine’s for all who celebrate it and happy shopping!

Butterflies – Black & White Experience

Sometimes, you see an outfit and immediately have an idea what you would like to do with it.

Exactly that happened with the “Siran” outfit from Zibska. In general with Zibska I have never a hard time when I am wearing one of her outfits, as I love er artistic view on clothing and design.

It was one of that days.. I stood around going through my inventory – telling myself I need to sort and clean that mess – and fooling around with unboxing and trying several things, when I found the “Siran” outfit from Zibska, which I got a while ago. When I put it on, the black and white caught my heart on the first sight. Yes – I have a weakness for black & white stuffs 😉

The asymmetric design with the huge black body attachment and the black butterflies on the right side and the more filigree white one on the left perfectly match the 2 colored body suit. The bodysuit as well is unsymmetrical with a long black arm on the right and short white one on the left.

Since I had butterflies already I felt the need for more butterflies and added some in the background that I got ages ago from Tableau Vivant.

The amazing hand piercings and claws are from MEVA… I know I had them showcased already a few times but they are just so amazing that I can’t take them off :p

The mask and the cute little key in my mouth, I found in a folder that I got longer ago :p It was made by Bauhaus Movement and originally there is as well a clown collar coming with it, which I did not use for todays look.

I really do enjoy black & white themes so I kept the background as well very simple. I hope you enjoyed the Black & White as much as I did 😉

I want to break free!

I want to break free

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free

[Queen]

Today, I again had one of those days where you have no clue what you gonna do. I was just sorting my inventory and tried things here and there.

The more I tried the more I realized it must be an earth tone mood, as all designs with the color I put on I liked :p

I started with the “Maika” top from [sys]. The long sleeves top with the amazing chains over the chest are so perfect for any kind of style.

The cute skirt I found in my inventory, comes from American Bazaar. What I loved most was the  mixture of the different brown/earth tones and then the layering of the leather and the amazing lace in the front. That kind of patchwork design makes it possible to either wear it for a medieval look or as well for post apocalyptic and fantasy styles.

The cool mask is made by Astralia, to me one of the best accessory designer ever with all the details she puts in her creations. The “Selveggia” mask with the huge horns is just so amazing and has so many details like the lines the pearls, the cover for the horns and it is even HUD driven so you can customize it to different looks.

Now I needed some boots for that cool top and the amazing skirt. since I am not a friend of long bare legs it had to be thigh high boots. My choice fell on the “Lido” boots from [sys]. The folds and wrinkles give them a light loose look, which was perfect for the look as body tight ones would not have looked that cool ;). With the neat zipper and the metal plate on the back of the feet, they just looked super cool.

For location shoots, lately more and more I like to go to roleplay sims, as usually they are created with so many sweet details and little corners that you can discover.. it is really fun exploring them and as well doing pictures there. This time I went to the Outbreaks sims. A post apocalyptic zombie roleplay. The have two sims going for RP but even the landing point up in the sky is amazing. so I decided to just use the landing point of the sims for my pictures.

Many role play sims allow snapping pictures as long as you do not disturb the RP or obtrude people who live there. Some offer photographer or observer tags and give you the rules of the locations. If you respect that, you rarely will have problems to make pictures on those amazing sims.

It’s a Life, it’s a Style…

TUNES

EXPRESS

It’s a cold and crazy world that’s ragin’ outside
Well baby me and all my girls are bringin’ on the fire
Show a little leg, gotta shimmy your chest
It’s a life, it’s a style, it’s a need, it’s

Burlesque

E-X-P-R-E-S-S
love, sex
Ladies no regrets

Been holding down for quite some time and finally the moment’s right
I love to make the people stare
They know I got that certain savoir-faire

Fasten up
Can you imagine what would happen if I let you close enough to touch?
Step into the fantasy
You’ll never want to leave, baby let’s give it to you…Why?

It’s a passion, and emotion, it’s a fashion, Burlesque
It’ll move, goin’ through you, so do what I do, Burlesque

All ladies come put your grown up, boys throw it up if you want it
Can you feel me, can you feel it? It’s

Burlesque

I tease ’em ’til they’re on the edge
They screamin’ more for more and more they beg
I know it’s me they come to see
My pleasure brings them to their knees

Fasten up
Can you imagine what would happen if I let you close enough to touch?
Step into the fantasy
You’ll never want to leave, baby let’s give it to you…Why?

It’s a passion, and emotion, it’s a fashion, Burlesque
It’ll move, goin’ through you, so do what I do, Burlesque

All ladies, confident, flaunt it
Boys throw it up if you want it
Can you feel me, can you feel it? It’s

Burlesque

It’s a passion, and emotion, it’s a fashion, Burlesque
It will move you goin’ through you, so do what I do, Burlesque

All ladies come put your grown up, boys throw it up if you want it
Can you feel me, can you feel it? It’s Burlesque

Le Enfant Terrible – Vintage Bunny Puppet

Bunny 1

Finally I have time to do another post!

All the Christmas horror kept me away from all the blogging fun for way too long. But now a few days before Christmas I am nearly done with all the students concerts and kids musicals for this year – for thank god!

7 days to go and I finally will have holidays!

Bunny 4

Today I would like to spotlight one of the latest releases from LeEnfant Terrible, owner and designer of Enfant Terrible and a wonderful friend.

The “L’odeur du cuir” what means ‘the smell of leather’ is a full set of amazing items all made of leather. A wonderful corset with a huge color HUD, the super cute bunny mask in black & white, the incredible necklace with the long leather straps down the cleavage, an elegant bracelet and a sweet leg band with tiny little accessories, every girl needs,  in black, white & pink.

 Bunny 5

The incredible details of this set, show the love for every little thing, that LeEnfant Terrible puts in all her designs. You can nearly feel the hours and days, that she must have spent on those designs. If you just take a look at the leg band – for today’s post I chose the black one – with the tiny little brush, the eyeliner, the amazing filigree chains and all those realistic looking creations… simply stunning!

Bunny 3

The “L’odeur du cuir” set immediately brought me to a vintage mood, when I put it on the first time. I added a bra, we made for Wicca’s Wardrobe, wich will be released soon and a fishnet panty hose.

The puppet hanger I saw, when I was walking a show and a real good friend was wearing it so I had to have it! Thank you Xandrah for sharing where you got them from 😉

Last but not least I would like to drag your focus on the amazing sweet ankle boots made by Elysium.

Bunny 6

The incredible “London Ankle Boots” from Elysium come with a HUD, to change the fur options on the top. With the amazing suede fabric and the filigree lines that end in such a sweet box at the upper side, those shoes are perfect for the actual season 🙂

Halloween @ Wicca’s Wardrobe

Avicula 2

Halloween… maybe my favourite time of the year 😉

The nights become darker and colder. The fog takes over in most of the evenings and bathes the ground in dense fog so that you get the imagination to walk over grey fogs. Very mysterious 🙂

Halloween in the US is way more popular than in Germany, but even over here we have some wild and crazy parties 😉

That gives us the freedom to go wild in SL too and design some crazy outfits for all those Halloween lovers and those who enjoy the season as much as I do 😉

Today I would like to showcase the “Avicularia” outfit, one of our original mesh designs for this years spooky season.

Avicula 5

The dress has high open front, and a long flowing back skirt. The gloves, all the spider attachments and the huge spider web in the back are part of the outfit. The gloves fit the regular avatar and as well we included Slink hands applier for all those who love their mesh Slink hands. To be honest I can’t live without them anymore.

The amazing “Myostola” headpiece is another new release at Wicca’s Wardrobe. The headpiece covers nearly the whole head and with the 2 horns it really makes a strong statement. The headpiece is available in 2 different versions. Once with and once without the spider web and the little spider between the horns. For each of the 3 colors you always will get 2 different pieces per box. with a vice versa color combination like black/grey and grey/black for example.

To complete the look we created the “Grammostola” necklace. The collar is inspired by a spiderweb as well and has one little spider sitting at the front left.

Avicula 4

To add some more to the look we tried to create some matching makeup too. I have to admit, it looked way more easy than it was and I do not see my future in that*giggles.

Anyways, for this outfit I tried to make a spiderweb for the right eye, an eyeliner and lipstick matching to the basic color of the dress.

Sometimes I get asked why some outfits would have such weird names…  so it was for the Avicularia, Myostola and Grammostola. Basically all those names are certain spiders of the bird spider family 😉 With the latin names it kinda sounded so scary and spooky, that I just loved it 😉

And now, I wanna go and find a cool place to hang out with my spooky scary look or maybe jump on one of my best friends, not to mention she suffers quite an arachnophobia*giggles evil*
