Stand up for your Rights!

TUNES

Preacher man, don’t tell me
Heaven is under the earth
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth
It’s not all that glitters is gold
‘Alf the story has never been told
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. Come on!
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight!

[Bob Marley]

When I was styling and shooting todays pictures, I saw a lot of things on the news that made me sad again. It is so embarrassing, that in the 21st century we still have to talk about human equality – it should be our nature by now and not something we still need to debate about! We are all humans anyways what skin color, religion, ethnics or countries we have or come from. I was raised that way, that I should always see humanity in people first, get to know them and then decide if I like them or not, but not because of their visible trademarks.I am very happy that according to the news there is many people who think the same – sadly not yet all. There are enough things to dislike someone, but that only should be about character attributes and nothing else. I am not a dreamer… not everyone can go along with everyone else – we have our own character as well – but it shouldn’t be any thing that we judge about, before we actually know the person itself and know what we dislike about a certain person! In a world where we can fly everywhere in the world and can live where ever we choose, those idiotic, racist thoughts should be gone – ALL kind of them! We all have our traditions and no one will take them away, just because we allow another one to be close and have their own traditions and culture – it even can be interesting and exciting, at least for me.

So yes, STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS if someone tries to take them away from you!

Deep Sea

TUNES

Deep sea dive
Got down, but you stayed alive
It’s only you down there
You and the bends
Lose your mind
Lose track of breathing and time
It’s only you down there
Sleep with the tides

Die, my love
Breathe in twos and fours
To know what’s worth breathing for
Some days it’s easier than falling asleep

We can be anyone
It took so long to know someone like you
And age in the dying sun
Wake only to bathe in vivid greens and blues

[Snail Mail]
A couple of days ago I was looking for days to find a nude, very pale lipstick for a very special look. I wanted to archive hat typical “dark smokey eyes against super pale nearly vanishing nude lips” look. I am wearing a very light, pale skin and all the usual nude lipsticks I found were too dark for what I was looking for – I have so many nude lipsticks in my inventory now… I probably never need to buy another in my whole second life 😉 . But like I said before none of them was working. While I sat here cursing and almost skipping my desired look with wearing my “everyday skin” I thought it would not hurt to ask in the LeLutka Discord channel, if anyone would know a very light, nude, nearly white looking lipstick I maybe could tint. I got one fast answer of a sweet Lady asking me if i would look for an applier, BoM layers or HD Lips for the new evolution headline – I was totally shocked by the thought of I would even get a chance to choose, since I could not find any of those matching my thought before! She had a store name in her Discord name so I went to the SL inworld search and looked for her store… CAZIMI!
I never heard of her store before but it turned out as a little  gem for LeLutka addicted people! She does offer BoM and other head appliers too, but she doesn’t treat the LeLutka cosmetics like stepchildren… No, she even privileges them! When Dima – owner and designer of CAZIMI – spied me at her store, she came down and poked me into the right direction for the super light nude lipstck she made. I tried a demo and already saw that the lips are incredible amazing fitted and textured. So I went ahead and bought the desired pack called “Trending HD Lipstick (Lelutka) Set 02 Neutrals” And guess what… it was PERFECTLY that color, that I needed for my skin tone! I will showcase that in one of my next posts as well, but while we were standing there and me being uberly happy and as well amazed by her work I could not resist to buy the colorful pack of the same lipstick with its rich and deep hued colors. The set is called “Trending HD Lipstick (Lelutka) Set 03 Colorful” and it is the lipstick I am using for my todays post. You get 8 rich and amazing colors with this pack – light blue, dark blue, light green, dark green, cyan, yellow and orange. What I do love a lot is that her lipsticks are NOT making that sadly popular thick, wide and pouty lips. It does look like a very natural lipstick with a little shine, which makes it very realistic looking.
I had no words how grateful I was for this amazing lipstick and especially the light, pale one I was looking for and while we were talking I peeked around the store a little more and found a lot of more useful, adorable cosmetics and nails. All cosmetics and nail polishes I am wearing for todays post are from CAZIMI. This is definitely a store, I will sort at the very top of my personal cosmetic stores. She does not only provide crazy makeup and nails, she as well has all kind of makeups, lipsticks and nails from cute to fierce and she keeps releasing new designs. So keep an eye on that wonderful store if you are looking for new and interesting, as well as very well fitting and shaped makeup.
I already posted the “Kanji” ears from .:E.A.Studio:. (HERE), but I wanted to use them again for a new gacha from .:E.A.Studio:. called “Domino Set”. It was available at the Kinky Event, but I am sure you will find it soon as well in Shina Shan‘s main store. The gacha is a pure earring gacha. You can gamble for 6 different earrings in various colors, which makes the gacha a full with 21 different possibilities to win. I tried to use all 6 different earrings on both ears. They are not rigged and so you can easily edit them and have fun with combining them differently.
The tattoo I am wearing with its incredible materials was made by Sir Skye Nefekalum, designer and owner of Nefekalum Tattoos. The tattoo is as well part of a gacha with 11 different, wonderful and extraordinary tattoos. It should be available at the Gachaland event and afterwards I am sure you will find it at the Nefekalum Tattoos main store.
I hope you enjoyed my little deep sea journey… I will make my way up to the human world again and prepare my next post 😉

The Approach…

Crazy times… Corona still holds the world in its hand and all of us try to do our best to fight it, even if we cannot see yet any success and things seem to get worse and worse. I know it isn’t the fact, but sometimes it feels like it. We are now in our second week without school in Germany. I am a teacher (usually in the mornings I do teach at a school) and I do have a tiny private afternoon tutoring company. Usually I am surrounded by kids all day and in the past I had days where that was quite exhausting. Always having 10 to 60 kids around you from 8 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon didn’t feel always easy but now that I see how it is to have none of them around – it doesn’t feel good either. I am lucky to have the possibility to hold online classes and have some one-on-one tutoring as well, but it doesn’t feel the same. Before the difficulties were the noise in bigger groups, or the kids being distracted by looking outside the window and now… the difficulties have changed. I never thought it could be that hard to explain something like mathematics to a child online only online… you talk a lot more trying to describe everything and if they have to draw triangles with certain length or certain degree angles. Most of them do not have the technical equipment to show you what they did, they usually only can take a snap with their cellphone and send it to me.. and if they spend already like 20 min to do that task and then something went wrong you can start all over again.

Certainly it has a positive side as well – I do not have the distance and the time to drive to school and back in the afternoon and I have the advantage of having an open bowser all the time to find answers I might not know out of the blue for certain questions, so I do not wanna whine or rage about it – I just discover everyday the differences and the different difficulties. Between all that I try to keep my Mom inside and safe – she is over 70 and recently had a brain tumor and chemo after it, so she is in the risk group for that damn virus as well. So my Second Life times at the moment are a little bit more limited and not as regular as I used to be, but I do not want to stop blogging and taking pictures completely as it feels like a little bit of resting time and holiday for my brain when I do that.

The pictures for todays post I already did  over a week ago, but I wasn’t able to post work them and write something about yet. So now the Cyber fair by ACCESS sadly is over but I am sure you can find all the goodies in the designers main stores already or soon.

First of all the amazing vinyl ensemble from A&Y called “Phex”, which is a combination of a long sleeved top and short pants with an awesome, realistic looking shine. It is decorated with straps and zippers and with the huge HUD you can change the colors for all different parts including the metals.

All the amazing accessories I as well found at the Cyber Fair, but like I said before I am sure you will find them most likely either already or soon at the designers main stores. The incredible face art done by Nefekalum Tattoos comes in 3 different versions. You can find many different tings in your folder. First of all the 3 different versions of the makeup it self. Black Tears only, Red Smudge only and a full version of both. Furthermore you will find appliers for head and body materials and the belonging erasers. On top of that, since all his tattoos are materials enabled, Sir Skye added a perfect projector (light source) as well, for you to use if you like.

Certainly I did need some cool nails and rings to complete my outfit and it was no question that the “Creature Claws” from CerberusXing were just the perfect choice. They are available in 3 colors (silver, onyx and gold) and rigged for Belleza Jake,  Signature Gianni, Maitreya and the female Slink hands.

The smart looking hair style was made by no.match. I love the wild top hair, the shaved sides and the fact that you still have 2 wisps at your ears. Like always for no.match hair styles you have different color packs and a fatpack available. The purchases will include a shaved hairbase as well, but since I do have my own shaved hair base I did not use it for todays post 😉

It was time again to built my own set – I found so many cool things at the Cyber Fair, I just had to. All you can see, from the backdrop over the drinks, food (weed) vending machine and the incredible animals, I collected at the Cyber Fair.

I would like to draw your attention a little bot towards the animals. The “Caged Biter” is available in 3 different colors. You can separate the animal from the cage as you can see in my pictures. The Biter is an animated mesh design and has adorable movements, which make it possible to have some more interactive looking pictures with the different poses or the animal.

I do have an immense fun at the moment with cyber and sci-fi posts as they open a whole new range for pictures and styles to me. We do not know what the fashion or environment will look like in our future, but for me that gives us a lot of room to experiment and the possibility of unending creativity 🙂

Blue Mood

Did you ever have that… that you didn’t have quite an idea for a picture but you wanted to have it in y special color? Lately that happens a lot to me, that I know what colors the general over all picture should have and then I just try to squeeze what ever it becomes to match those color ideas *giggles*

Today it was blue – I really had a Blue Mood today, I do not know why though.

For this pictures I had 2 basics I wanted to blog – the new dress from A&Y, which they offer at the current round of ROMP (I wanted to do that earlier but with my sickness and the need to lay down, I wasn’t able to sadly) and the super cute little “Chonk Demon” from HILTED, which they released at the current round of Aenigma, a new event that happens the first time this month.

I LOVE A&Y for their design ideas as well as for their incredible latex textures. Usually I try to style up something cyber or sci-fi with their designs, but this time I wanted to show that even if it is latex, it can be very versatile in different looks. I combined the awesome “Jane Dress” with a fur stole from {le fill casse} and the whole look got a lightly elegant chic. I so would go to a cocktail party or on a red carpet like that *snickers*

Certainly the look has to have my personal twist and I added some of the amazing piercings from CerberusXing and I painted me some eyebrows for today, as I saw fit for them to complete my look. The strong makeup I needed I found at alaskametro<3. I recently got the BoM layers for all those awesome makeups I had as appliers, as I just could not live without them anymore.

The cool hair, which was right perfect for todays look was made by no.match and you can grab it at the eBento event at the moment. I always had an addiction for non-symmetric hair that has a little bit of a wild touch so the “No_Shit” hair style was right down my alley.

Another addiction of mine are nails and rings,  usually claws I do love even more and if they come with huge statement rings – even better! The “Conjuration Claws of CerberusXing are just a perfect example of that. Huge, sharp claws and different rings for all fingers. For the claws you even can decide if you want a plain or a scaled version to make them even more evil 😉

OMG it is BoM!!!

And again I am coming to you with the new Evolution Line of LeLutka heads – this time with Nova!

The new Evolution Line of LeLUTKA, does hold so many amazing news for the heads that you really need some time until you have them figured out fully and every second is worth it. Today I decided to go with the “mature” feature of the materials. When I took a closer look I was able to see all the cute wrinkles at the outer eye corners and the cool ones on my forehead and between the eyes above the nose. I guess that will be my everyday look now for the new head generation, as I love t to not look like a young woman anymore after all that time I was in SL now*grins* What I found out too was, that I can play with the intensity of the materials as well as the environment influence, which again opened a complete new world for me for future posts!

What I wanted to test now too, was if the amazing Axis HUD from LeLutka would still work with the new heads and – surprise surprise – it DOES! That means even if i got so many new moods and expressions I still may do my own or alter the ones that are included in the HUD.

I never was full sold on the new BoM features besides the new LeLutka heads, so I was fooling around quite a while with a BoM head and a non BoM body. Since it seems to become more and more popular (even if I still do not really see the mega advantage of it for the body) I thought I will give it a try with the “Maitreya Bakes on Mesh Relay HUD” for the Maitreya Body which is sold on MP for 0 L$ (link to the item in my credits below). What I do like with the Maitreya body, is that I still can use my appliers in addition to the new BoM feature and my alpha HUD still works normal.

So what better I could try first on my BoM enabled body than wearing one of my most favorite designers from the past days… LeeZu!!! She sadly left Second Life quite a while ago but I still have EVERYTHING I ever got and bought from LeeZu in the past. I was working there for years as a store model and LeeZu, Barb and GM became true friends of mine. With that feelings and emotions behind it, I never was able to delete all the amazing creations and now, since we can wear layer clothing again, it was the first I tried!

And guess what… it worked! With her texture skills it even looks kick ass awesome on the BoM body. Her textures always were super detailed and knife sharp so she was already ahead of her time back then, which is no surprise to me as she always was one of the very best if it came to texturing and creating her own textures.

So even if I am still not really  a stalwart supporter of the cause, I definitely enjoy wearing all my LeeZu goodies again for now! We will see what the new BoM adventure will have for me the more I take my look into it 😉

Crime Scene!

TUNES

As he came into the window
It was the sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She ran underneath the table
He could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down, it was her doom

[Michael Jackson]

Do you know that feeling, if you have gotten something you totaly like and then you have no satisfying idea how to showcase it in a styling? You do not want to make a compromise, nor you want to waste it in something it doesn’t belong 100% to? This I an fighting for 2 different things for weeks now and finally one design just made it into something I do like *smiles all over*

That is one reason, why I am wearing my Simone head from LeLutka again instead of one of the new Evolution line (that will be my next post again!) I was a longer process this time – it started way before the new head line from LeLutka was released *giggles*

When I finally had my look together, the huge problem of the background/scenery started again. Lately that is one of my biggest problems as I rarely find good places when I need them, they usually pop up way after I posted something and then I get into the “Damn, would you just have waited” mode. But if I wouldn’t have the pictures already, that moment would not have happened most likely…

I am pondering if I just over-think things sometimes and that becomes to the problem that I do not like anything I am doing, or if it is just an episode in my life that I question everything at the moment – I have no idea.

But this time I was lucky again and found my perfect background with the “Slum Riverside” backdrop from Paparazzi and some deco elements from DRD and floorplan to make it look like I wanted.

My item I was trying for so long to find the right look was the “Crime Scene” face art from Nefekalum Tattoos. It was a gift for the Hallow Manor. It is an amazing alteration of the “Seer” face tattoo, which I was already in love with and showcased before already (HERE).

Yellow usually isn’t a color I am very familiar with as I love black and red or white the most . Sometimes even blue but the warm, bright colors are something I struggle a lot with. Even more I wanted this pictures to be perfect and cool 😉

CerberusXing is one of my favorite places to go, if I am looking for something edgy, extraordinary or outstanding. I love his dark moods and designs a lot and they do inspire me a lot for many of my pictures. His texture work is incredible with so many different fabrics and his leather textures are just stunning.

Today I am wearing a mix and match of many of his designs. I combines the “Hiniata” net dress with the “Pantsu Codex” panties and the amazing detailed “LSD Fishnet” stockings. I will have another post for the stockings soon since I am hiding half of the beauty in my “Monster Boots” from Psycho Barbie.

I wanted to bring the yellow once again and I digged deep in my inventory to find something yellow that would work with the amazing face art. Yellow isn’t automatically yellow, something I tried to tell people for years. Even if it is the same color or color range it still might clash if you pair the wrong shades, but I rarely get heard with that *rolls her eyes*

It is the same when people keep saying red and pink do not go together – damn hell they do if you picture the right shades… anyways, lets focus on yellow and black again *winks*

I know I used the earring/piercing gacha set from Eclipse Art Studio already for my last picture but it is just so amazing I had to use it again for this post. I even loved that kind of piercing in RL and as well had one of those for a long time, where the nose piercing was connected to the ear – maybe thats is why I love it so much, as it reminds me on my 20s. Even if I have no clue anymore how I could sleep with that chain across my cheek… must have worked as I had for quite a while! I always loved long earrings more than short ones or studs only, even if sometimes my long hair totally became a mess when they tangled up with exactly that. The long earrings I used to take out at night and changed them kinda everyday.

The whole style remembers me on my 20s somehow even if I would have not worn that tiny, little nothing of that sexy net dress like that… but hey, that is what we have Second Life for!

Now I will crawl back to my platform and work some more on the new “Nova” head from LeLutka, so that I can show that to you next 😉

Scary moments and moods! Again it was time for some creepy and horror inspired pictures *snickers*

This time it was the cool face tattoo from CURELESS[+] and the uber cool backdrop from CerberusXing that inspired me to do something dark and wicked. The “Crucifix Corridor” backdrop reminded me about a scene of the movie “The Nun” which lead me to 2 or my favorite horror movie series – Insidious and Conjuring with all its sequels and prequels. I never could decide which ones I loved more and so a little bot of all of them went into todays pictures.

You cannot make a picture with just a back drop and some face modifications, I thought and tried to put together a look that would work with what I wanted to showcase. Instantly the super awesome “Morgane Ribbon Heels” from [Gos] came to my mind. The were released for this month round of FaMESHed and I instantly fell in love with the way the ribbons reached down till the tip of the pumps. As always you get a wide range of colors with the HUD and as well the possibility to color the show and the ribbons, plus a few other details separately. I tried to show you a few possibilities above, but certainly you get way more than you can see up there 😉

For my outfit I chose and outfit I saw at the last round of ROMP, made by AsteroidBox and combined with the cool bracers from CerberusXing made the perfect look but still it looked a little bit too ‘cute’ for what I was looking for. With the cool horns from E.V.E and the evil hair from no.match I finally was satisfied with my look for what I had in mind. For the poses, always when I want to do something creepy and unusual, I went with the poses from Poseidon. I already wrote about them a couple of times, but I just cannot stop telling how awesome they are if you are looking for something that shows some action, or motions or something out of the mainstream looking.

I hope you enjoyed my little key keeper as much as I did and I will no go and watch some of the mentioned movies… maybe to get some more ideas for dark fantasy inspired pictures *wicked grin*
