Ponygirl

“Your nights are a season at my command, human pony girl”

[Samhain]

If you try to search for ponygirl on the internet, you will probably find this on wikipedia:

“Pony play is where at least one of the participants dresses to resemble and assumes the mannerisms and character of an equine animal. People involved in pony-play (“ponies”) generally divide themselves to three groups although some will participate in more than one category:

  • Cart ponies pull a sulky with their owner.
  • Riding ponies are ridden, either on all fours or on two legs, with the “rider” on the shoulders of the “pony” (also known as Shoulder riding). Note that a human back is generally not strong enough to take the weight of another adult without risk of injury, so four-legged “riding” is generally symbolic, with the “rider” taking most of their weight on their own legs.
  • Show ponies show off their dressage skills and often wear elaborate harnesses, plumes and so on.

Pony play is sometimes referred to as “The Aristotelian Perversion”, in reference to an apocryphal story where the philosopher Aristotle was persuaded to let a woman named Phyllis ride him like a horse, in promised exchange for sexual favors: an episode depicted in various woodcuts and other works of art.”

When I saw that the first time, I thought like “WTF?!?” and then I tried to find more about it. If you dig a little bit deeper, you will find a lot of interesting and sometimes even funny things. Most of them looked, as there would be a lot of fun involved as well. I learned a term from Silly once when she said “What ever floats your boat” and that perfectly applies on such fetishes I would guess. Why we should judge about something, that can be fun and satisfy desires of someone? For me there is no reason and as one that certainly had to try several things in the past, I had the chance to try out a tiny little bit of that kind of roleplay myself. I have to admit I really had good times, even if it is nothing for me, what would be an everyday fun or desire ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I saw this amazing outfit and head piece at the Kinky event, it immediately reminded me of those pictures and little movies and I had to give it a try. Certainly I wanted to have a fashionable ponygirl, so I decided to go for some kind of editorial ideas of fetish pictures in general. I even found some editorial fashion pony girl pictures from popular designers and musicians. The most impressive interpretation of that ponyplay in a fashion way I found at one of Madonnas live concert openings in 2005 (watch HERE). Inspired by that even more and because I adore Madonna’s creativity, I wanted to give it a try.

The “Pony Girl” outfit done as a collaboration between CerberusXing and Maru Kado is an ensemble of a body harness and the head gear, sold separately in either black or white. As always for both brands the textures are incredible awesome and the harness was made for the Maitreya Lara mesh body in a perfect fit. For the head gear, even an animation is included to have the mouth open to perfectly fit the bridle in between your lips. While I was looking for hair, which seemed not that easy when I first tried, as I did not want to mess up or hide that amazing head piece in any way, and all of a sudden the amazing “DoMina” hair fro Mina hair came to my mind, which I found at the last Fetish Fair. The hood with the ponytail fitted perfectly under the head piece! I have to admit, lately I practiced a lot of hair modifications and paintings for Second Life hair. The hair parts that are shown from the ears down are all not anymore true Second Life hair, but I am sure you are aware of that. The hair looks awesome in inworld, I just wanted to experiment a little bit with it for my todays pictures.

Another awesome idea and design I am wearing today are the “Rachel BENTO Clamps & Weights” from Salt & Pepper. When I saw them the first time, I wasn’t sure how I could showcase them properly but for this look they were just perfect. The clamps are not just decorative clamps they are genius scripted to make them perfect for any kind of fetish roleplay. In the box you will find the clamps and 3 different weights for the left and right nipple. Each weight pulls down the breast down depending on it’s own weight and it works as well with your physics and clothing. The handling is easy… you just add the clamps and then your preferred weight to see the effect. I bet you can imagine, how much that will add to your roleplay experiences! There is a version for Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass and Belleza Freya.

What is a huge part of todays look and its intensity are the tattoos of Nefekalum Tattoos. For this post I used the body tattoo called “From Ashes” and for the face I chose the “Egyptian Sun”. Both come as Omega appliers and can be used for all body and head types that support the Omega system. For those who already plan on the new “Baked on Mesh” possibility, both of the tattoos have the system tattoo layer included as well. I already tried it – it works just perfect for LeLutka Head and Maitreya Lara or Belleza Freya!

First I tried all kind of different backgrounds like a meadow, jumping obstacles (yes they are available in Second Life I found out!), barns and all kind of naturalistic sceneries and none them looked anywhere near “cool”.

When I did some research about editorial fetish and ponyplay pictures, I found a lot of latex and leather stuff and ALL of them had some kind of smoke in the background and not much more to that. Sometimes there were simple, single props involved like posts, chairs and all kind of furniture, so I decided to go with a simple fence I could lean against or sit on for the possibility to use some cool poses. Lately I realized that pictures that involve movement or a certain action – like leaning against something – make pictures way more interesting, that just standing somewhere with no connection to anything.

If you follow my blog for a while you might have realized, that I have way less casual content than before. Some people asked me, if I now completely said goodbye to casual content… no, not in general, but there is so many casual content around AND I just did casual for too long already. Lately I am more into some edgy stuff – not that I wasn’t kinda crazy before already – I feel it suits and inspires me more. In the past I had my focus more on the fact, to show that I can be very versatile and pull of every style in its own way and not in my way ๐Ÿ˜‰ That lately changed a lot, as I feel way more comfortable to still do various styles and genres, but always in my own way and not following general mainstream or “rules”. I feels more honest and true to myself, while it still keeps me all kind of style genres open to play with. I hope you enjoy my journey of finding my own way of showcasing and interpreting things – thank you for all your support and all the nice word and comments through my personal Second Life adventures! That keeps me going and working on new content as often as I can on my blog and Flickr ๐Ÿ™‚

VERSUS Magazine Spring/Summer 2019: https://issuu.com/versus.sl.magazine/docs/versus_magazine_spring_summer_2019

I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
And every melody is timeless
Life was stringing me along
Then you came and you cut me loose
Was solo singing on my own
Now I can’t find the key without you

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

Sirens – The Dark Side of the Mermaid Family

Ok, if someone would have told me, that I would do a mermaid post… I would have broken down laughing. I always faced mermaids as the sweet and cute pink, purple or pastel colored girly sweethearts… until I came across a TV show called Sirens last year. I read about the dark side in some mermaid stories but I never saw them so dark before that show. I love the events from Flair for Events and when this year the sign up for the Mermaid Cove came out, I could not resist to apply as a designer, thinking we could do something that works for those dark sirens.

We did –ย  we made the “Amatheia” claws. A combination of bracelet and claws, connected by chains and decorated with some shells. When we set up our booth, I saw the super awesome cool release from The White Crow right beside us. It must have been fate, that we were assigned right beside each other, both enjoying the darker side of the theme :p

-[TWC]- made those amazing tentacles, which come out of your nose and mouth together with a cool matching makeup/lips combo. I so loved the “Sea Witch” I had to make a dark and scary siren usingย  that one ๐Ÿ™‚

There were so many other cool items, so the look came together really fast. Arise made those neat face scales in 3 different styles and the super cool “Sea Ghoul Eyes” with a matching makeup were made by BLAXIUM. I realized, that I discovered BLAXIUM for me lately as they to kick ass cool designs and piercings, that are not mainstream focused only.

First I tried to set up an underwater scene but, since SL water doesn’t really do much from below the water surface, I decided to go for a little dark cave, only lighted by a few moon beams, that come through the ceiling of it. When I had placed my siren on the awesome rocks (I really love their materials!) with the cool poses, that WetCat released at the Mermaid Cove event, I missed something in the back. Just open sea looked kinda boring and I decided to put a ship, that hit a rock because of the siren singing in front of the cave aka into my back.

To get a feeling of a rough sea, I had to cheat in Photoshop as I could not find waves and foam in SL that did what I wanted it to do. With most of the stuff I found, I ended up with weird pixelated white “something” in my back.

First I thought I do have to wear any kind of clothing to cover my chest, but the combination of the “Sandra” hair from MINA and the “Body Scales” from Cynefin did hide everything needed.

I had so much fun doing those pictures… I can’t promise that I won’t come up with another dark mermaid look and pictures in the future ๐Ÿ˜‰

Golden Moments

The people who live in a golden age usually go around complaining how yellow everything looks.

[Randall Jarrell]

This picture is something very special and as well unusual for me.

It was made not just for being a fashion showcase, but as well being something abstract and artistic. Originally it was made for the February Issue of the Eclipse Magazine, but I could not resist to fool a little more with it in Photoshop and tweak it a little more. First I thought about not posting it as it already was in the magazine, but I do love it so much that I finally decided to make a post out of it *grins*.

I felt different doing this kind of picture, that does not have the main focus on the avatar itself, but as well being not a landscape or furniture post either. It was more to focus on a feeling, that was in my head when I put on those amazing artistic parts from E.V.E Studio. It felt like something from outer-space, but still something vulnerable and romantic. I tried to express that with the pose and the few things I added to the “Elf-2255” designs.

I have no idea if I make sense by saying that, but I hope you can get what I mean *winks*

“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.”

[Dawn of the Dead]

God I enjoy Halloween and the dark season way too much ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I started watching the 8th season of TWD – go figure where the inspiration of todays post came from…

Ok it wasn’t only TWD, it was the uber cool gacha from Salt & Pepper in cooperation with another one from Mina Hair as well. Salt & Pepper does some exciting interactive gachas for a while now. To me she did something completely new with those “changing” gachas. I guess it started with the wet clothing options, where you could go into linden water and had all of a sudden wet clothing, that dried again after some time when you were outside of water again. As well you certainly had the option of a drying towel as well if you wanted it quicker. That already was a great idea for roleplay scenarios. The paint ball game was an other one, that even had a HUD where you could fight with other residents , who owned the same set and HUD. That are only a few of her interactives… there are way more!

The one I would like to showcase today, is my personal favorite so far. The “Zombie” (Gacha Key) and the “Beatriz Zombie Hair” (Gacha Key) gachas were created for the special pop up round of the Arcade in October. Besides the interactive clothing and hair in both gachas you will find two different vents and fire-hydrants, that let you transform by walking by and a transformation HUD where you just can do the change by click.

To make my Zombie complete, I had to add 2 more creepy, scary things*grins*ย  The first one are the “Zombie” nails from FORMANAILS. When first saw them I was like “Are you kidding me?!?!??” I thought something like this would not exist but then.. who else than Ivi Bing should have done them ๐Ÿ˜‰ She is the one to be reckoned with, if it comes to extraordinary nail and hand designs. Nevertheless those nails are more than perfect for my Zombie look. They make me seriously look like being a Zombie for quite a while with my nails being damaged and ripped… just so kick ass cool ๐Ÿ˜‰

The second thing is that super scary facetattoo from CURELESS [+]. Actually I mixed a facetattoo and one of their eye makeup to make it even more creepy. The “XXX” face art and the “XXX” eye makeup made the perfect match to achieve the look I was looking for. CURELESS [+] always was one of my favorite stores for dark and scary things, the more I go there and shop the more I find things I want to use and due the fact of their designs, I see even more dark posts coming ๐Ÿ˜‰ I guess it was always inside of me and I just did hide it behind too much casual posts and ‘political correct’ do’s and don’ts ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe i should follow my dark and creepy mid a little bit more now and then ๐Ÿ˜‰

The only thing left was, to exchange my normal teeth with the LeLutka “Beast Teeth” and cover them in blood with their HUD. To me that worked beter with the bloody heart that looked so delicious :p

I found a new sim lately – my heart jumped higher when I found out it is a dark and scary place that will last the whole time and not just for Halloween! I am talking about Pendle Hill, another amazing creation of Lauren Bentham. She did a lot of amazing places already like Arranmore, Everywinter, the Baja sims and many more, but this one probably is my personal favorite. She used lots of DRD buildings and the environment is perfect for all creepy, spooky and darkness lovers!

Talking about creepy, spooky and scary places, I have to run to find more before Halloween is over and I can’t just do creepy things without having to explain it :p

Music was my first Love

Music was my first love
And it’ll be my last
Music of the future
And music of the past.
To live without my music
Would be impossible to do
In this world of troubles
my music pulls me through

[John Miles]

When I saw the outfit from today, I immediately had something in mind for pictures. As usual it did not wanna come out as intended and I had to think about something else.

The “Melodic Doll” from CURELESS[+] is another masterpiece of their amazing design. I always loved CURELESS[+] as they are creating things that are usually outside the box and very special. The details and the incredible skills of designing always was something that was marvelling. Every little detail is sharp and crisp and their creations usually need more than just one look to see their full beauty.

The whole set is rigged to fit the Maitreya Lara mesh body and with the alpha HUD you can fit the outfit perfectly to your avatar. The arms and legs of the “Melodic Doll” look typically like the ball jointed dolls, which we all might know from your childhood play toys ๐Ÿ˜‰ I totally love the look on my avatar now as well ๐Ÿ™‚ The limbs are a little thinner as your regular mesh body ones but that even more gives you the doll feeling.

The “Quaver” shoes of the gacha set are only working with the common dolly legs and won’t work with normal human feet. Some other unrigged shoes of mine did fit the dolly feet as well, but for the post I certainly chose the matching ones from the “Melodic Doll” gacha of CURELESS[+]. The box has no special animations in it but you can adjust it to every pose that you use easily.

The RARES of the set do have a HUD for full customization, while the COMMONS only have little HUDs that change the details.

As a musician, I adore the whole set and it was a must have for me. I hope you will have the same fun and happy feelings that I had when you get your “Melodic Doll”!

Black – not a Color but an Addiction ;)

Back in Black ๐Ÿ˜‰ As much as I experiment with colors, I do love black and it feels the most comfortable to me. Today I do have fantastic news from A&Y and no.match. A&Y is THE brand for everything cyber and futuristic looking and my personal favorite, if it comes to that kind of styles. Today I would like to showcase the very first gacha, that Anabel Crystal made for the Lootbox event. The gacha has 24 commons and 2 rares. The “Lorna Cybergothic Leather” gacha is composed of armwarmers, collar, panties, skirt and corset. “Lorna” comes in 6 different colors – Mono, Light, Dark, Red, Hot Red & Dark Red. While the corsets are the rare items all the others are amazing common items. The panties fit perfectly beneath the skirt but as well can be worn without it.

The cool legwarmers are made as well by A&Y and they got released at the Red Light District event. They come with 5 latex textures,ย  unlimited palette of tint and it is materials enabled as well. Shine and glow options can be chosen, too and you have the choice of an linkset and separate objects for each leg.

The amazing hair, comes from no.match and was released for the UBER event. I completely fell in love with the “No.Arrest” hairstyle. I am anyways addicted to short hair and if they have a slight punky style I just cannot resist anyways ๐Ÿ˜‰ No.match is one of my favorite hair store for along time and I do love their textures and as well the different colors of their hair. Since Wicca does have the ‘no eyebrow’ look as one of her trademarks I do have to have a light hair color. That kinda limits me to a range from blond to light red if I do not use any kind of eyebrows – if I use them they are kinda unusual and the most I do love the penciled ones – no.match has the best shades of those colors for me, that as well match my skintone perfectly.

Since I am talking the whole time about favorite stores I cannot miss Zibska, one of my first stores to go if I am looking for extra ordinary and strong character makeups. I am always jumping up and down if I see new releases especially unusual lipsticks like the “Tista” one. It is just amazing what you can do with makeup and lipsticks apart from the norm and Zib Scaggs seems to have an unlimited sky of creativity for exactly those!

No matter where you go, everyoneโ€™s connected…

โ€œ You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own identity. โ€

[Philip K. Dick,ย Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?]

I do have an addiction for cyber punk and futuristic looks… but I guess thats not new;)

What is new is the hairstyle from A&Y which I completely fell in love with ๐Ÿ˜‰

A&Y always was one of my first choices for cyber or futuristic hair. The ideas of Anabel Crystal, Owner and designer of A&Y, are just incredible amazing. She has that special look to all her creations, when you see designs you immediately know she made them. The “Lucia Cyber Hair” is a perfect example for the incredible eye for the detail of Anabel Crystal. The haistyle is an unsymmetrical one, which I anyways love and it is decorated with amazing tubes on one side, which go around, down the neck to meet the tail on the other side.

What I adore as well is that with A&Y has some super vibrant colors in their hair. You can wear them as one color only or you can use the strong colors to set an accent to your style. That brings me to the amazing HUD for the A&Y hair. When I first used it, it took me a moment, to realize I cannot immediately use it, I have to connect the HUD first to my hairstyle. So you wear your hair, then the HUD and the you use the connect button on the HUD to ‘activate’ both to work together. The great advantage of that HUD is, that you can choose each section, which you want to color separately and clearly labeled. Each part of the tubes, the hair parts and every single decoration. I rarely saw such complex and great HUDs for hair, that are to operate so easy and detailed.

Certainly such a great hair needed a strong look to go with. I wanted to underline the cyber though with a non human skin. I remembered that I got an amazing unusual skin pack from YS&YS longer ago, with 4 very different colored skin tones. The great metal effect for the skin and the face, was part of another skin from YS&YS but it perfectly worked with the Zafiro tone from the “Ginny” pack. With the “Samara” outfit from Wicca’s Wardrobe, the cool stompers from DRD, the cyber arm from Naurolab Inc. and the long claws from Meva the look totally nailed a cyber look for me.

While I was styling the look for today I already got more cyber ideas :p So I guess it should not be too long until my next futuristic post ๐Ÿ˜‰

[Alexander McQueen]

YAY! Fetish Fair extends for one week! More time to get all the goodies ๐Ÿ˜‰ Speaking of goodies, many parts of my todays post are from exactly that Fetish Fair…

The cool mask, what made me start with my styling today, comes from E-Clipse Design. It is part of a full outfit called “Anu”. The outfit comes with dress, mask, boots and as well a whip. The boots and the whip I did not use for todays post.

The mask caught my attention immediately – I LOVE such neat accessories that are outside the mainstream range… I am sure thats nothing new ๐Ÿ˜‰ All the little details, the gear and tubes already make this a stunning accessory and if you take a closer look at the textures, you will see why I fell in love with it. The dress as well is something special. The fabric is opaque, but has a wonderful shining texture and you get the imagination of it being slightly sheer even if it is not. Speaking of details… take a look how awesome the strings are wrapped around the body held by those amazing metal rings!

The cool boots would fit perfectly into the Fetish Fair as well, but those are out now at the Cosmopolitan event. The “Camala” boots are calf high boots with an amazing lace down at the sides of the feet. I have no clue how Elisabetta Hyun does her textures, but they are so incredible realistic and you never have any seams where the shoes have none. The “Camala” boots come with a huge HUD to customize several parts of the boots like the main boot, the laces, the inner and outer sole as well as the heel and metals. I know I already mentioned that, but what I do like a lot with the UTOPIA@Design shoes is the preset tab on the HUD where Elisabetta already makes 9 presets ready to wear and as well the possibility to choose about the glossiness of the whole shoe.

The collar and the cool garter – yes, it is a mesh body rigged garter that is a standalone without the stockings – I as well found at the Fetish Fair. Recently I look into .:Avanti:. more and more as I really do like the way Intoxicate, owner and designer of .:Avanti:., creates her things. I rarely saw so many different way of stockings like she did and what I love the most – they are different high on the thighs depending on their style. That makes it possible, that you can either connect them to garters or wear them even under thigh high boots and see the tiny boarder peeking still ๐Ÿ˜‰ and certainly I cannot forget to mention that I adore her texture skills for her appliers!

Last but not least, I would like to drag your attention towards the amazing hand accessories I am wearing. I always look for something I can wear on my hands, I am addicted to all kind of nails, rings, gloves and what not ๐Ÿ˜‰ This time I chose the super cool “No Mercy Rings” from [Since1975].ย  They combine some leather straps wrapped around your hands and as well unusual, kick ass rings and little gems on the fingernails. All are perfectly rigged for bento hands and react awesome to all kind of finger movement and posing. With the HUD you can decide what metal colors you would like to have and as well you can hide rinsg and gems single, to not have a perfect mirror on both hands. That I like a lot, as you usually never have all the same rings mirrored on each hand at the same time and I am anyways a lover of non symmetric things.

But now I will make my way back to the Fetish Fair again – since I have one week more to go – and see what neat accessories I can find for my next post ๐Ÿ˜‰

“Did you ever realize, that the snow makes the world quiet?”

Once one of my kids in school – one with a mental disability that is usually very quiet – asked me “Did you ever realize that the snow makes the world quiet?” and looked at me curious, with his big green eyes. It was so out of the blue, that I really was speechless for a moment and then I realized he is right. Those little things we all do know, but never talk about them anymore – we just take them as read. When they brought up again, they show even more the beauty and miracles that nature gives to us, especially through the eyes of a child ๐Ÿ™‚

I am still in a snow mood and when I found the super cute animated “Snowglobe” from [Since 1975] I was totally sold to do another winter post ๐Ÿ™‚

The globe is part of a gacha, that has different season globes. some of them are animated and have poses even!The animated one I used has sweet snowflakes falling down while you can sit on the trunk. The trunk has some nice couple cuddle poses in it, I sadly found no one I could pose with (Red was busy as always), so I just made me some poses to pose in that amazing background ๐Ÿ˜‰

I did not add much except some of the Canadian RedMarple” trees from Little Branch to enhance the globe a little bit. The trees have a 4 seasons feature and on touch you can change the season really easy to fit your scenery.

 

All I had to do is style one more winter look, which was not hard with the new “Nicole” outfit from *LX* at 4Mesh and the amazing “Ophelia” boots from UTOPIA@Design.

“Nicole” contains a top and a skirt. With 12 colors you have a wide range to play with the colors you like and a HUD as well provides the possibility for the seams of the sweater and the belt to color them different. The outfit is made for Maitreya, Belleza (Isis & Freya) and for both of the Slink Physique bodies (Original & Hourglass).

The boots again come with the same amazing HUDs as all the UTOPIA@Design shoes do. You can customize all parts of the shoes as well as you can use the already made presets, that the designer already made for you.

Since it is still winter I added some sleeves to the outfit. They are from Cashmere and I got them during their closing sale ages ago. Needles to say that there are not yet any mesh body sizes included, but with the Maitreya alpha HUD you can cheat your way round that as well sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cool umbrella with an unbuilt pose to hold it in your hand was part of the “Alter-Umrella” gacha set from [Since 1975]. There are all kind of umbrellas in that set and each of them would have been amazing for my todays post.
