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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

“The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”

[Yves Saint Laurent]

And again I find myself doing black & red tones pictures… I do not know what that is, but to me lack & red are a very strong color combination especially if you have a deep hued saturated red πŸ˜‰

For the set I used several items from E.V.E Studio. I love the way how she does her designs, as they can be used from casual to fantasy up to artistic surroundings.

When I unpacked the “{The Wall} Mural Tir Na Nog ” pack from E.V.E Studio, I was totally in love with all this tiles that make a wonderful structured wall and ground. playing with projectors was fun with this wall as the tiles reflect the lights in such an amazing way πŸ˜‰

The cool dress comes from [sYs] and I found out it’s ‘secret’ when I put on the HUD. Each color comes with a HUD and you can color 2 parts of the dress separate! If you own more than one HUD you can even mix the different colors :p

Tattoos – I rarely wear other tattoos that the amazing art pieces from [White~Widow]. Julie Hastings really is a genius with her tattoos and I rarely found such original, filigree and detailed tattoos somewhere else. Usually you have RL tattoos that, someone brings to SL, but Julie seems to hand draw hers one by one and it looks like her creativity has no limits πŸ˜‰ The “GetOut” tattoo you can find at the actual round of the Kinky event.

If we take a closer look on the glasses and the shoes you will remember both being made by Glamistry. The shoes come – as usual for Glamistry –Β  withΒ  several HUD options so you can customize them to your likings. The glasses are made the same way πŸ˜‰

I more and more like playing with projectors in combination with the SL windlights and I am sure, I will have something more for you soon πŸ˜‰

LOTD 08/05/2016 – Yesterday @ GizzA

GizzA 04

Yesterday when I dressed up for my GizzA shift I found myself in a light elegant mood. That for I tried one of the latest releases from GizzA called “Adrianna”. “Adrianna” is a wonderful ensemble of a jacket with a deep neckline and a wonderful short leather skirt. The outfit is available for standard avatars as well as for Slink Physique/Hourglass and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies.

Since GizzA recently started to make appliers for mesh bodies, I could not resist to use the new “Fleur Lace Top” under the “Adrianna” outfit. I made a wonderful addition to the rest of the look πŸ™‚ The “Fleur Lace Top” comes with four appliers (Slink, Belleza, Maitreya & Omega) so you should be able to wear it with all the popular mesh bodies out there. What really caught my attention, the lines are very sharp and crisp and so you could see all the love for the details, Giz put into that wonderful new release. To complete the outfit I put sheer tights from Izzie’s and the wonderful “MeiMei” set made by Meva for the past round of On9, but I am sure you will find it at her main store now πŸ˜‰

GizzA 01

For the pictures I again found my way to one of the Neva sims. This time it was Saint Pete City. A wonderful designed little city with so many details that I still find some every time I go back there πŸ˜‰ For these picture series, I walked to the more outsides where you can see the seaside from those lovely benches. That would be as well a wonderful place just to relax and chat and enjoy the waves and birds I guess πŸ˜‰

Fragilestrong with Salt & Pepper!

Salt & Pepper 02final

Today I have something very special and as well a personal favour for you.

Lately I got an incredible rope harness from Salt & Pepper. I did not know that amazing designer personally before and I was super surprised, that we share the same country in RL*grins*

It is always kinda funny, if you talk to people in English and after a longer while you discover, that you could have spoken your mother tongue :p

Salt & Pepper 10final

When I met that wonderful lady, I immediately had an amazing and comfortable feeling talking to her and the more we talked, the more I felt, I would like to do that sweet lady a favour. Just because she was so nice and kind to me πŸ˜‰

She released an amazing Rope & Flowers set on a very new event called Objets d’Amour, which was hosted by the owners or the ROMP event. The first round, where this artpiece was released, was going on from the 4th or February until the 15th.

Sadly, RL did not let me do the pictures in time of the event :/

But since I wanted to do something very special, I simply could not rush the pics through.

But I took a peek at the main store of Salt & Pepper and I saw that she has the gacha machine up there now with that amazing items πŸ˜‰

Salt & Pepper 08final

I know that many people have prejudices about ropes on a nearly nude body and many times it just falls towards porn or gets judged like that. But as in so many cases, it is always in the eye of the beholder or about personal taste I guess.

To me ropes can be very artistic and as well, tasteful and artistic lingerie or nude shots can be very impressing and amazing.

And exactly that, I wanted to transport on my todays pictures πŸ˜‰

Salt & Pepper 01final

First I put on the harness and all the parts that came with it and looked at it very close. It comes with HUDs for all pieces, where you can change the colors of the ropes, metals and roses. The set contains even more parts than the ones I used but for the purpose and look I was going for they did not wanna really fit in to my view this time πŸ˜‰

I decided to go with the harness, the gag and cuffs for ankles and wrists. All parts are scripted for roleplay as well.

The more I looked on the different pieces, the more I found all those incredible details like the little chains that lead for the ropes to the metals or the amazing detailed texture of the rope itself. That already proves the high quality of the Salt & Pepper designs. The whole set contains 5 standard sizes for the classic avatars, Slink Physique/Hourglass and a Maitreya Lara fitting version.

Salt & Pepper 03final

When I was staring at my pixels wearing the awesome parts of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, imaginations ran through my head about what to do with it.

First I tried the black ropes and everything I tried to style kinda was sexy and seductive… but I wanted more. The more I tried, the more an idea got stuck in my mind about opposites. I wanted something artistic, something sexy, something classy.. something fragile and something strong and powerful.

First I thought that will be too many in one but the more I played with stuff the more I was confident about it can work.

Salt & Pepper 06final

I got stuck on the white ropes with the rose golden metals and the darker red roses. To give an opposite to the strong and kinky look of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, I wanted some white lingerie – not too playful with lots of ruffles and lace. More something classy, simple but still modern and different looking AND for the Slink Physique mesh body. After spending more than an hour on Marketplace, I made my way into the Starwalkers2010 chat and asked – kinda depressed – about ideas for something like that.

I got some very good advises but one girl hit the nail on the head with her suggestion… Thank you Voshie Paine!!!

She lead my way to Chocolate Atelier (c.A.). I TPed over to the store and already was very impressed about the designs and I was curious what Marketplace would give me for that brand since sometimes gacha items or older products are not available in world anymore but still there.

Salt & Pepper 09final

BINGO!

I found the “Thea Bra & Panties” ensemble. The amazing layer set can be worn on many different mesh bodies and mesh body parts with the provided appliers and it has the layer versions inside as well.

The simple looking light, smooth fabric has some very fascinating cutouts on both parts, that make an amazing front and back view πŸ˜‰

Salt & Pepper 07final

While I was searching through my inventory for any kind of scenery or decoration ideas, I stumbled over something that I got a long time ago and never really used it. It comes out of a time long before mesh even was talked about :p .

The “Draped” set from Glitterati was released back in 2011 and comes with a sheer satin looking fabric prop and 10 different poses. I did not use all of them but for a few I wanted to give it a try.

With all the new windlight, the old sculpties did not cooperate too well and I had to rework them a little later in PS. Since I am not a trained graphic artist in RL… go figure… that took a while, but it was well worth every minute for me and I learned new things πŸ˜‰

I had so much fun doing those pictures and post. I met a wonderful and kind person, I learned about 2Β  – for me new – brands I definitely will put on my “to shop and watch out for” list so overall it was a wonderful experience and try to play with lingerie, ropes and opposites πŸ™‚

LOTD 08/17/2015 – Goodies @ On9 :)

On9 1a

Today I would like to showcase some of the amazing designs available at the On9 event.

On9 is a monthly event, that offers many different designers, creations, and items. You will find clothing, accessories, furniture, poses, shoes, makeup and nearly everything you can thin about all in one place done by different genius and skilled creators. You can imagine how happy I was when I was asked if we would like to be part with Wicca’s Wardrobe as well… among all those incredible designers and creators πŸ˜‰

But today I won’t use any of our own stuff and put some spotlight on some of those amazing items you can find at the current On9 event.

On9 2a

Let’s start with the incredible amazing head-piece. Who else that Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska, could do such an amazing art piece?

The huge head-piece looks like made out of petals and some sweet fishes are swimming around. The head-piece comes with a great color HUD that lets you customize the petals, the accents and the fishes to many different colors.

To fit under this wonderful head-piece I needed some not too high but still modern and fresh looking hairstyle. Guess what… I as well found that one at On9 *snickers*. No.Match offers the perfect hair for my actual look. The “No.Call” style with the two smart braided tails left and right was the right addition to balance the crazy and the cute touch of the whole look.

The glasses are as well available at On9. Made by [Since 1975] those glasses are an extra ordinary addition to your accessories box! You can decide between 4 different colors. I went with the golden version for today’s post.

On9 3a

The super sweet top was made by the amazing Poulet Koenkamp, owner and designer of PurpleMoon.

Poulet is one of the most talented people, I was allowed to meet and call a friend in SL. She always amazed me with her stunning hand printed textures and her awesome ideas and designs. For this month of On9 she made this delicate top called “Anika” in 7 different colors. The top is a wide and loose fit and together with the cool sleeves, this top really is a must have for every ladies wardrobe especially for the late summer season:) .

Β The pants and the shoes coming from a very talented and skilled woman too. Thetra Blackheart, ower and designer of E-Clipse. The “Fringe Pants” I got longer ago but the amazing “Follia” heels are as well available at On9. In 6 different colors or as a fatpack, those amazing heels fit the Slink, the Maitreya and the TMP feet. The strapped heels have wonderful fringes at the front and some amazing metal decorations on the straps. With the HUD you can change the metals to 3 different types.

Last but not least I would like to zoom in a little bit closer and drag the focus on this incredible necklace from Kunglers. You can pick from 5 different colors. The great combination of filigree metals, stones and gems makes a wonderful every day necklace for many different styles.

For all the other amazing ne releases at On9 please jump over there and take a look by yourself. And don’t forget… every designer offers one piece for 20% off the regular price, like always at On9!

Hairmania with EMO-tions

EMO-tions - Nella

EMO-tions – “Nella”

And finally RL let me free to enjoy SL a bit more again πŸ˜‰

I would like to start my blogging year 2015 with a “New Hair” post.

Mirja Mills from EMO-tions was such a busy bee even during the christmas and holiday season, that I really thought I owe her a special hair post πŸ™‚

EMO-tions - Mona

EMO-tions – “Mona”

Recently she made some wonderful mesh hair styles, I really fell in love with. The “Nella ” and the “Mona” style totally captured my attention as this is kinda the way I used to have my hair RL and it reminded me of some cool pictures i got from a gig with my band. Both are kinda windblown and not just al good girl sorted. So the perfect choice for an amazing everyday look.

EMO-tions - Michaela

EMO-tions – “Michaela”

But even the good girls will be satisfied with for example “Michaela”. The amazing long braid, that is coming down over the right shoulder comes in 2 different looks. Once like we see it on the picture with hiding half of the face under a wonderful wisp of hair. The “Michaela 2” as well has some hair needles wich pull exactly that hair to the back.

EMO-tions - Laleen A

EMO-tions – “Laleen A”

“Laleen” again is a ‘2 in 1’ hair style with the amazing sweet and cute animation, which the avatar does when you change the hairstyle by touch. The “Laleen” hair can be worn as a long ponytail over the right shoulder or when clicked it becomes a sweet casual up-do πŸ™‚

EMO-tions - Laleen B

EMO-tions – “Laleen B”

For both versions the knot at the back of the head stays the same.

EMO-tions - Jared

EMO-tions – “Jared”

“Jared” originally was made as a male hair style. It as well has an amazing beard in the box but that really looked too awkward for my today’s post ;). But I never saw the reason why certain male hairstyles cannot be worn by females as well πŸ˜‰

EMO-tions - Lauren

EMO-tions – “Lauren”

With Lauren my little punk heart was beating a tick louder than usual. Those amazing little braids all pulled over to the right side of the head show a wonderful shaved under-cut on the left side of the head.

EMO-tions - Alicia

EMO-tions – “Alicia”

“Alicia” is one of those hair styles I dreamed about in RL ion forever but I never dared to cut my hair again so short, after I had a bad accident with a person that cut my hair while I was a child too short. But “Alicia” totally brings a super modern vibe to me and makes an amazing every day hair style.

EMO-tions - Eles

EMO-tions – “Eles”

Last but not least for today we have “Eles” a more elegant hair style which as well can be used for casual stylings but gives them a more classy look. The playful wisps tha go down at the sides add a very realistic touch.

Even if I posted all of those amazing hair now in only one color, you certainly have the normal color options we know from EMO-tions πŸ™‚

So do not wait and take the next taxi to the EMO-tions main store!

Exciting News for 2015 @ Wicca’s Wardrobe & Happy New Year!

Sazzy&Wicca Sexy 2

Today again is a very special to me as I can bring already a short sneak peel of some news at Wicca’s Wardrobe of 2015 πŸ˜‰

To already show part of the great newness I asked Sazzy Nirpaw to be with me for this amazing post for a very special reason.

Today’s post will be about a new release at Wicca’s Wardrobe and as well an introduction of a special new collection located at Wicca’s Wardrobe.

The ones of you who know me and Wicca’s Wardrobe for a while may know Sazzy Nirpaw as my COO and as well my personal assistant and very dear friend. But that’s not yet all πŸ™‚

Sazzy as well has amazing designing skills and already had a store way before Wicca’s Wardrobe was in my mind πŸ˜‰ Many of you might remember her brand FATAL.

She closed her doors couple of years ago and for me it felt kinda as a loss for the SL fashion world since then. But she wanted to develop herself more and had various other projects and things she wanted to get done. But lately we more and more talked about FATAL again and the more we talked the more the idea was growing in both of our minds. I kept nagging her about her amazing designing and creator skills – I guess I was close to just get yelled at for not stopping my bothering :p

But… it seems my constant poking was not for nothing^^

Sazzy agreed to think about designing again!

I am very proud and honored that I may show you the very first release of the Wicca’s Wardrobe [FATAL] collection…

Sazzy&Wicca Sexy 1

The “Sense & Sensuality” lingerie!

This amazing lingerie ensemble contains bra, panties, corset and stockings. The corset is mesh made while the bra, panties and stockings come as layers forΒ  very special reason.

For the very first time me and Saz were sitting together to figure out how the appliers for the Slink Physique are working.

Saz made the amazing “Sense & Sensuality” set in 6 different colors. For today’s post Saz is wearing the ‘black’ version and I decided to go with the ‘navy’ one.

The great thing of that lingerie is, it can be worn as usual layer clothing with the mesh corset AND with the Slink Physique mesh body. We included a HUD where you can apply the bra, panties and stockings to body, legs and feet.

So be sure to take a look and find the color that matches you best for a wonderful evening with the one you love πŸ˜‰

Thank you Sazzy for your work, trust, and friendship and I hope that’s the beginning of another chapter in the book we are allowed to write together – our book of the wonderful journey that brought us till where we are now <3

I am very proud, honored and happy to have Saz now not anymore only as a COO – I am looking forward to a great collaboration of Wicca’s Wardrobe & FATAL!

Happy New Year from Wicca’s Wardrobe & FATAL

Leave your Hat on – Styling around a hat Part II

Art in Hats 01

Because I had so much fun with the stylings for the Art in Hats show, I would like to share another of my stylings made around just a hat πŸ˜‰

This time the hat I started out with came from Miuccia Klaar. The amazing “The Garden in my Head Hat” shows a watering can and some huge flowers in red and pink growing out some grass.

So what to style around… I wanted to keep the hat center, but still have the colors repeated somewhere plus, I wanted to keep the art character of the hat for the whole look.

I remembered black pants from [AD] Creations, wich had 2 huge pink buttons at the belly and a long waist decoration so I jumped into my [AD] folder and tried all pants till I found them. They are part of the “Haw outfit. With the buttons at the belly and the sheer parts on the right leg they were just perfect.

To bring back the sheer part and to kinda make it pop out a bit more I decided to go with the shirt of the “Riga” outfit from SoliDea FoliEs. The amazing sleeves with the attached mesh hands are from [AD] Creations.

For the boots I chose one of my long time favourites, the “Piccadilly Overknee” mesh boots from Leezu.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: ” Girls just wanna have fun”

LeeZu-GizzA-Lazuri 001Pink & Purple!!! Yes, I took my medicals for my pink allergy before I did the styling*grins*

Usually I try to avoid pink and purple like hell bu sometimes I am in a 80’s mood and back then pink and purple were some of the dominating colors.

The “Metropolis” mesh dress from LeeZu was the base for this in the end colorful look. The sexy short dress, wich only has straps over the shoulders is amazing textured with wonderful lights and shadows looks amazing realistic.

LeeZu-GizzA-Lazuri 002

The jacket comes from GizzA. The “Biker Jacket” always was something I had on my focus and as I saw the pink version discounted to 50%, I just could not resist and the pink & black idea was born. I am a fan of overknee boots since in forever and the “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” from LeeZu are a long time favourite of mine. To make a black basic, I put them on in black. Now the part of the legs between the black “Metropolis” dress and the boots screamed for some color as well, as the pink jacket dominated the whole look. I first tried some pink leggings but then it was too much of all that pink and so I decided to go a little darker with purple. The “Cat Tights” in violet from LeeZu with the holes just made the perfect match for my 80s look, since back then many ripped their stockings and jeans to get the used look.

For the jewelry, I wanted something with black metals and some pink and lilac or purplish looking gems. Nothing that would dominate the whole look too much, just something that goes with it. I have a fable for neck corsets and collars, so I remembered the “Noor Mystic Infinity” set from Lazuri, that I was given for the amazing jewelry spread in the BoSL Magazine. The “Noor Mystic Infinity” set is fully menu driven like all of the Lazuri jewelry and that makes it for me so valuable. I can decide about the metal and as well the gem stones for fabric and color and I can even color the gem stones in different colors and not just one for all gems. What I figured out for the Lazuri jewelry as well… you can have different styles for nearly each set. Always a basic style and 2 more to add more and more glam and parts to it. That really is something inventive for me, as you just buy one set, have 3 different styles and a full control over the metals and colors.

The skin as usual is my custom made “Wicca” skin in the new ‘lumee lunette’ tone. The lipstick as well comes from Silken Moon and the eye makeup I found at Boom.

The whole look took me so much back into the 80s that I was listening to all the old good tunes during my post and enjoyed it so much, that I would like to quote Cyndi Lauper for the end of my post… “Girls just wanna have fun!”
