Wicca’s Originals @ The Engine Room 2020 // 20th April – 20th May

Times are stressful, but don’t lose your head! But just in case you do, consider this Elmstone Head by Wicca’s Originals as a replacement. The foundation of the Elmstone Head is a diving helmet, which is bolted to the torso instead of a diving suit. Within, it uses an air-tight seal to maintain your brain in a protective casing. Tubes are connected to air passageways to regulate your breath. The left half of the head if a cosmetic shell to give a more human appearance, whereas the right half of the head is all functional. A phonograph part emit your voice and can pick up sounds, a light sensor over the right eye is able to bring in images. An adjustment knob allows increasing or decreasing the light sensitivity for bright or dark environments. Further up, on the brow, switches and and a dial is present to control rest mode or to turn on low-power mode. In the event of a power-down, the wearer can be jump-started using the bolt on the left of the head plate. May take some getting used to. Wicca’s Originals is not responsible for any lapses in humanity or mental stability caused by prolonged use of the Elmstone head. The metal pieces come in eight different color shades and are finely polished for a nice shine, combining a kind of strange beauty with utility.

The Elmstone Head is rigged for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Legacy and Signature Gianni.

The Overton Arms by Wicca’s Originals are not just any set of steampunk vambraces. Ferroniobium cast plating provides superior protection against even the sharpest blades, but layered on top of the rubber allows the armored material to absorb even ballistic impacts. The shaping also protects the wrist join from intense impact, which is important because these Overton Arms have another secret built up their sleeve. They are powered arms, using kinetic energy stored up through routine movement to later be discharged in mechanically augmented jabs, hooks or uppercuts. A nixie tube display and dial both provide the wearer with a readout on how much potential energy is stored in capacitor near the elbow. Stylish, defensive, and powerful, be sure to get yours today!

The  Overton Arms are made for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass and Signature Gianni and come in 6 colors with a HUD to customize all the details and parts.

Steampunk Revolution!


We’ve got a steampunk revolution
We’re tired of all your so-called evolution
We’ve darted back to 1886
Don’t ask us why; that’s how we get our kicks

Out with the new
In with the old
Out with the new
In with the old

Our underworld isn’t filled with fear
Just brass and copper, leather scrap, and rusty gear
You can keep your hip-hop techno-pop-rock schleppin-dub
I’m on my way to a coal-powered underground vintage pub

Your subculture shops at the mall
We build ours with blowtorch, needle, thread, and leather awl
With our antique clock parts we’ve taken all arts, fine art to fashion
And now we’re spreading worldwide to circle the globe with a furious passion

“Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds, because it has more to prove.” – Terry Pratchett

“It is a law of nature we overlook, that intellectual versatility is the compensation for change, danger, and trouble. An animal perfectly in harmony with its environment is a perfect mechanism. Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change. Only those animals partake of intelligence that have a huge variety of needs and dangers.”

[H.G. Wells, The Time Machine]

As I threatened before… here is another steampunk post *winks*

Today it was the super cool “Steam Commander” gacha from Luas, that caught my attention – yes, I know it is around a while, but sometimes things need time to grow until they are ready to post. Do you know that feeling? If you see something and you want it no matter what, even if you have no idea yet what you will do with it? I am sure you do and for me that happens very often, even if I put a duty on myself to not shop things I won’t use anymore. With some designs I simply cannot resist, especially if it is something I do love in general. Steampunk I DO love :p


I didn’t use the full gacha set as I am more a boots girl than a pumps girl and so I added one of my favorite steampunk boots from Eudora3D called “Yana”. Since steampunk is kinda a fantasy genre I thought I can add some elf ears from my Eclipse Art Studio, as it gave the whole look a cute touch. I am anyways a friend of mix and match things to give them my own twist :p

More and more I try to built the sets for my pictures on my own, as I can showcase or credit things more precise and properly. But sometimes I just want to go to interesting Second Life places and show my respect for those who built those amazing places for everyone to visit.

Today It was again New Babbage, more precise the Canal District of New Babbage. Did you ever visit New Babbage? If you love steampunk and not yet did – you totally should take time for a little journey.  Even if you are not too much into steampunk, but love the 19th century, this vast Victorian steampunk area is full of airships, clockwork devices, submersibles, and other amazing technology. It’s an ideal place to explore life as it was in the 19th century. New Babbage is part of a sim collective of 12 sims with so many amazing places, that it took me way more than a week to explore and every time I go there, I still find something new – either because I did oversee it before, or they already changed some things again 🙂 If I go there, I really have to try hard to focus on my pictures and not just wander around and just look.

Even if building sets is a lot of fun and I still learn how to arrange things, so that they nit just look like a hot mess, I would not want to miss those journeys that again remind me of the beauty of Second Life.
