White Winter at Finesmith!!!

As I said in one of my last posts… I would like to showcase some more of the ‘White Winter’ collection of yula Finesmith.

Today I have the white version of the “Shinobu Inspiration”. The whole set contains a pair of earrings, the necklace and a fantastic ring. The white gives the whole set a wonderful mystical touch. As always you can resize each part of the set to your likings and fittings via the menu. The little dragon heads make a wonderful theme for an extravagant outfit as well 🙂 If you make your way to the Finesmith Mainstore you can see more of the ‘White Winter’ collection 🙂

Incredible Autumn News by Tres Beau!!!

Yesterday I had the great honor to judge at the Styling Forward contest with Frolic Mills and Kimmera Madison. It was great fun and we saw some  cool Halloween stylings. After the show, Kimmera, Edi and me, talked a while and had fun in some pose stores. During that time Kimmera gave me 2 of her new designs. Not long after I excused myself and went into my dark corner to look at the outfits… WOW!!! Both are incredible great and so perfect for the actual season! I was sitting over my inventory to find a few things to style this wonderful outfits quite a while, but then it looked like I wanted it to be :p …

The first you can see in the pic above is called “Flight”. The huge feather collar inspired me to use the great face tattoo from Miamai that reminded me of some feathers of dark birds as well. That brought me on those 2 crows and the dead tree in the back ;). The lipstick was made by Oceane and the earrings are one of my longtime favourite, the “Vivienne” earrings made by yula Finesmith. The boots and the hat are as well part of that amazing “Flight” outfit of Tres Beau!!!

The second outfit for today as well from Tres Beau will be the “Meryl” dress in red…

On this dress you again can see Kimmera’s skills and possibilities if it comes to designing. The beautiful corsage has a handpainted texture as usual for Tres Beau clothing. That for me it makes it very special, as you really can see nearly every brush line, that is needed to make such a wonderful and unique texture! I only can imagine how long it takes to draw and paint such a filigree texture. What I always adored on Kimmera’s work is that the textures seem to move with the avatar… the texture hardly gets stretched weird or destroyed while my pixels move. The awesome sheer skirt as well is a pice of art if you see how it moves with the avatar. The  right flexibility and moving time to let it look really real. The 2 big ornaments at the left hip and the head make amazing eyecatchers and give an extra touch of elegnance to the whole outfit. If you visit the Tres Beau Mainstore you will find a lot more of the amazing creations of Kimmera Madison and I am sure you will as well find one for you 😉

Finesmith Designs – Inspiration Sets March/April Part I

Finally I made it to snap my wonderful inspiration set of the Finesmith Muse 2011 contest. On the 1st of May, Finesmith Designs had a wonderful show, produced by Kabuki Boutique. The show was called “11 Rooms”. Each room had a special scene.

Each model with it’s own inspiration set had a room that was made especially for that set. Taylor Wassip was acting in a bedroom, Luralie Bailey danced in a club scene, Rissa Friller was in a shopping rage at a Jewelry Store, Aliyeh Yifu, the little mermaid  was swimming in an amazing underwater scenerie, Shena Neox was putting together a wonderful style in a dressing room, Vivienne Coppola showcased her awesome set in a cabaret show, Jamee Sandalwood wandered around the forrest, Sy Whitesong hovered through the downtown at night, myself was captured in a dungeon, Melanie Sauterau (for the show replaced by Serene Faith) strolled through an Art Gallery and Rusalka Callisto was turning her body in front of a camera in a photostudio.

During the show always one room was opened and each model has it’s own song to showcase the jewelry with a short choreography of poses. The audience was sitting in the middle of a black room and one room after another opened and a short story was read in a very interesting way not like the usual scripts of fashion shows. For this blog post I for sure wanted to show you the incredible set yula Finesmith made for me and as well I will try to show you all the wonderful sets one by one :). Luckily, I got the script afterwards so I can give you a short impression what was happening there :). At this point a big thank you to Xenobia Foxclaw who did this awesome script 🙂

As I mentioned… my room was a little dungeon. All in red and black with a cage and candles. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kabukimodels/5679571069/in/photostream) and for sure a text that matched this theme perfectly 😉

“Wicca Merlin was not born into the life of slavery. She entered it willingly with her eyes wide open. She adored her master and did his bidding. From cleaning his house to pleasing him in bed…she did it all without a word of complaint.

She knew he particularly liked to find her in this elaborate cage that hung in the dungeon surrounded by candles. She knew she looked especially pretty in candle light, and she loved the way the metals glinted and the candles set them ablaze on the walls. Tonight she wore his favorite set of jewelry – the Finesmith set that had been made to fit her. They felt warm and sensuous, and they fulfilled the promise he made when she signed the contract that made her his slave. Wicca would only enter such a relationship if the reward were her own set of jewelry from Yula. Wicca was quite sure she had the better end of that bargain.”

The second set I would like to show you, was made for Melanie Sauterau. For the show Serene Faith our actual MVW replaced Melanie as she was not able to make to the the show.

“Tonight is the opening of a new gallery exhibit. The pieces have been selected with great care to show the best work of this renowned artist. She is so young to be so accomplished in photography, oils, marble, metal, and gems. Her metal work is undoubtedly what she is best known for. I’m so very honored to be part of this exhibit. I’ve heard people say how very life-like I am. Some have even reached out to touch my skin to assure themselves that I am not a living model, or they watch my breast to see if I breath. I don’t understand how I cannot be living though – I have feelings, I love, I cry, I wonder..
I wonder who this person is who I’m named after – Melony Inspiration. Melony is a beautiful name, she must be beautiful to have inspired a work such as I am and the jewelry that I wear. I wonder if she is living still – perhaps a long lost love or a mother remembered fondly. I wonder what the story behind me is…I wonder.”

The last one for today yula made for Vivienne Coppola. A wild and fresh set that totally is a must have for every fashionista!

” Of all of her friends, Vivienne Coppola is the perfect one to appear in a dream cabaret. She has a wonderful collection of vintage flapper clothing. She is also dramatic in her behavior and her movements. She is even known to burst out into song and dance right on the street.
Even her jewelry, from Finesmith Designs, is perfect for her dramatic flair. The pieces seem somehow exuberant just like Vivienne. The band, the music, the dance, the beat of the drum – it all seems so full of life.
Listen, perhaps you can hear her now coming down the hall singing, “Stroke that shiny coat, stroking is the antidote, stroke that it’s a start, only for the wild at heart” – such a sexy song to sing and dance to. Yes, Vivienne is the perfect one to appear in this cabaret.”

All of the March / April inspiration sets are limited to 50 sets each and you can as well purchse them in single parts! As I said there are 10 new inspiration sets and I will show them to you one after another, so stay tuned for all the other lovely piece of arts created for wonderful models by yula Finesmith, owner and genius goddess of Finesmith Designs!
