So take me as I am…

So take me as I am
This may mean you’ll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
And I’m going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won’t mean a thing

[Meredith Brooks]

The styling today I made with some goodies of the WCF 2017. The fair is now over but I am sure, you will find all the creations and designs in the mainstores of the designers ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes you plan on blogging something and then all of a sudden you RL comes in between and disturbs that plans.

But I loved the look too much to just trash it and go on with all the new stuffs ๐Ÿ˜‰

The outfit is a mix and match of several designers and as well of mesh designs and appliers.

The cool top, that mainly is made of chains with some cloth at the sides was made by [sys] as an exclusive for the WCF 2017. Since I wanted to cover up my private parts a little bit, I added the “Sexy Lingerie” from Cherie underneath the “Shane” top.

The hair as well was made as an exclusive to the WCF 2017 and it doesย  come from no.match. At the moment I have kinda a top 3 for hair designers and I could not say which one of those I love most , since they are all do different. No.match, EMO-tions and enVOGUE I use the most as I just simply love their ideas and textures the most. Certainly I have hair from all over as there are hairstyles I see and like instantly like DeLa, .shi or so many others but when I pull up my hair folder those 3 have the highest numbers for a reason ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the WCF 2017, no.match made 2 different version with a hat. one as a braid and one – the one I am using today – with open hair. One has the cap set on forward and the other one has it 180 degrees turned like the cool kids usually have it :p

The cool gloves were made by Real Evil Industries and I really love the details as well as the huge HUD that does let you customize so many parts to match your outfit.

The tattoo certainly comes from White Widow. I just love Julie’s tattoos and I rarely find good ones which do not get blurry or are way to colored or just uploaded RL tattoos. I do love the creativity and as well the painting skills that Julie brings to her tattoos and I am totally amazed that this creativity seems to be never ending ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 03/26/2017 – Yesterday @ GizzA

Working at GizzA is so much fun, you meet new people everyday and as well you have probably the 2 of the best bosses ever. Giz and Auster are 2 of the most kind people I ever met in Second Life and so work is even more fun especially if the come around to check the store and have time for little chit-chat ๐Ÿ˜‰

GizzA had many new releases lately – as always –ย  it was hard to pick one for my today’s shift.

Finally my decision fell on the “Karlie Sweater Dress”.

The dress can be worn without any pants or leggings as well, but I am not a fan of bare legs too much, plus the season not yet has me in the mood for that ๐Ÿ˜‰

The sweater dress comes in many different colors and you get for each of them 2 different shades and a HUD for the belt.

For the pants I chose some leggings from Lassitude & Ennui, that just matched the tone of the sweater perfectly.

That look just matched the season mood I am in at the moment, ready for spring to come even if it is freezy outside still later in the afternoons!

Diversity in Black and White for SL Fierce

Dark Beauty for SL Fierce Magazine (https://issuu.com/slfiercemagazine/docs/fierce-feb17_final)

I love working for magazines and not too long ago the newest issue of SL Fierce was released.

SL Fierce, February 2017

SL Fierce is something special to me, as they (aka mainly Steele Sirnah, as SL Fierce is kinda his baby ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) always come up with amazing themes and as well with challenging styling requests, but you always have to use your own inventory and have kinda free reign of what you are doing without any given items or rules.

Certainly it is fun too if you get things from amazing designers, but it is a totally different workflow for me then. When you get a design, then you try to highlight it in your look. You want to promote the designer that gave you the item and with the focus on that you built a style around that. I would not choose one over the other as I like both and each is a totally different challenge than the other ๐Ÿ˜‰

This time SL Fierce was going for ‘Dark & Light Feathers’ as well as for ‘Dark Beauty’. When I was told, who I may shoot with, I totally was looking forward to the shoots, as I always feel an invisible band between me and her and she seems to think so much alike and always feels and gets my weirdness :p

I am talking about WrenNoir Cerise, one of the most creative and skilled artists I met in SL, when it comes to 2D art and as well a wonderful and kind lady.

Light Feathers for SL Fierce Magazine (https://issuu.com/slfiercemagazine/docs/fierce-feb17_final)

Working with Wren always means huge fun and as well amazing pictures ๐Ÿ™‚ She loves to experiment and while she does her set ups or looks for the right poses she is even getting more into her creative universe.

The first look of the 3 I started with, was the Light Feathers, since I thought that might take me the longest to style since white is not my total comport zone ๐Ÿ˜‰

First I thought about an angel, but what ever I tried it looked weird to me and so I decided to try something different. Something more fantasy and satyr or faun looking. I always loved the “Wisdom Angel Wings” from Astralia so much and now I got the chance to try something with them ๐Ÿ™‚ The rest kinda fell in place very smooth ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the Dark Beauty, I wanted a strong, dark diva look :p And with the outfit from Pixicat combined with the stole of *agp* it was easy to achieve that.

The Dark Feathers, that was the one I felt most comfortable with… that was my personal playground*giggles* I love to mis and match so I used a lot of different feather attachments for this look.

It is amazing to see how so many different outfit parts that do not really belong to ech other on the first view, can become a new outfit.

Thank you SL Fierce, especially Steele & thank you Wren for another amazing challenge and time working on those looks and having the photo shoots!

Posing with Poseidon

How often we see cool poses and we never get to use them becasue they are extraordinary, editorial and so super awesome expressive that they seem to never fit an outfit.

Especially crouch poses or some kind of unusual movements can be hard if you have a certain outfit, that just doesnot want to cooperate with the poses you would love to use.. I am sure you know what I am talking about :p

So this time, I wanted tight pants, which would not clash with any kind of poses and some cool casual look that would agree with any kind of poses, that I always wanted to use before and rarely had a chance to do so.

My choice fell on one of the amazing applier leggings from Lassidude & Ennui. Her appliers really have an incredible quality and so many details that you barely can see they are ‘just’ appliers and not actual mesh pants. Appliers have the great advantage that nothing clashes or bends weird when your legs move. Another great thing about appliers is, you can mix and match a little bot more by using them together with mesh pieces, as you do not have to take care of several mesh sizes or mesh poking through each other by layering it over each other. The top comes from Moon Elixir with a full amazing outfit called “Rebel”

All the poses of today’s post are coming from Poseidon. An extraordinary pose store I discovered not too long ago. Gryphon Vendetta, owner and creator of Poseidon Poses, never stops to amaze me with his new releases.

The poses are super energetic and natural looking and most of them show incredible movements, like a momentary capture of some animation. You will find poses for any occasion or purpose at Poseidon, no matter if you look for runnings, jumps, dances or even themed poses like the super cool “Hill Nurse” set, that inspired me not too long ago to some creepy pics ๐Ÿ˜‰ (http://wiccamerlin.de/something-evils-lurkinin-the-dark/)

He did some super cool props and as well little sets filled with his amazing poses. To me they are really refreshing and inspire me a lot just by running through them. If you are a friend of different angles, those poses are super awesome for editorial shots as well as he takes care of every limb to be perfect. And even if they look so dramatic you always get a real looking feeling and nothing breaks or looks like broken bones :p

If you love unusual, fresh modern poses and if you like to do editorial or fantasy shots or if you are searching for some new poses in general to make some cool pictures, just take a look at the Poseidon Mainstore (TAXI). I am sure you will find some exciting new poses for new picture ideas ๐Ÿ˜‰

Spring is coming… soon! – Spring Dreams 2017

Today I am very happy to showcase one of the newest releases from Enfant Terrible. The stunning “Verdandi” dress is available at the actual round of the Enchantment.

I always admired Enfant for her stunning textures and her super amazing designs. And again the “Verdandi” dress shows exactly what I am talking about. The incredible texturing in different colors and as well the cool wrapped around belt make a great contrast. The dress looks so filigree and sophisticated and the strong leather belt with those cool studs just breaks up the romantic feeling in an amazing way.

The sweet head piece I found on the Enchantment event as well in a gacha machine from LODE. The “Bleeding Hearts” head piece with the little red hearts on top of the yellow/green leaves just made the perfect head dress for the “Verdandi” dress to me and it pulled back some of the romantic mood the dress has for me.

For the makeup and lipstick I decided to go with one of my personal favourites – Zibska. I love the creativity of Zib Scaggs, anyways if it is, apparel, makeup, shoes or accessories. She has such a great eye for colors, shapes and details and two of her newest make up releases I found at the Enchantment event as well. In total she has 4 packs – 2 eye shadows and 2 lipsticks –ย  at the Enchantment, kinda one dark and one light set and I chose to mix them for today’s post with the light eye shadow and the deep and dark shining lips.

Today I chose to use an inworld location, as iI wanted something like the first spring kiss, as I have enough of all the winter colds already and in Germany we got the first sunny days even if they still are not that warm ๐Ÿ˜‰ At “Romantic Moods” they already changed from the winter season to a spring coming soon layout, which just was perfect for my idea for the pictures.

Contrast – Black & Silver against Red

blacklace-agapee-1

Again Blacklace released an amazing ensemble of panties, bra, stockings, garter belt and this time even boots!

With my addiction for over knee boots I could not pass that one ๐Ÿ˜‰

blacklace-agapee-5

Again I tried to think about something to mix and match lingerie with something else to not again have a typical lingerie post (even if i will have soon one like that again since Blacklace does release so many amazing things *grins*)

When I was looking through my inventory what I could use today, a box was thrown against my head. Sora Tatham – owner and designer for agapee – a long time friend of mine sent me her newest release. The “Kelly Shirt” by agapee was the perfect addition to the “Anita” set from Blacklace.

With the open, loosely wrapped down front it was perfect for showcasing lingerie and the length was just right to let the garters peeking out under it :p

blacklace-agapee-3

I love several kinds of contrasts and so I thought about something black and silver highlighted just with one color, which I wanted to put on the lips, the hair and the nails.

Contrasts can be done in so many ways. colors, opposite things, things that do not belong together at all usually…and so many more.

The way how the comic Sin City is done always inspires me, when it comes to highlights and contrasts in colors.

blacklace-agapee-4

So for the hair I chose the “No.Case” hairstyle from no.match. In a red shade it was just perfect to the light red lip gloss and the red finger nails from Nailed It.

The scenery again was built mainly with designs from E.V.E Studio. The awesome “Ivy Trees M02” paired with parts of the “Broken Chains” set, that as well includes the amazing choker with the long chains in the back of the neck.

All the poses I used for this post come from Del May. I really do enjoy their unusual poses and I rarely found a pose store, that has those kind of poses before.. but a few days ago… I found another! Not yet saying which one, but soon I will have a post about it, I promise ๐Ÿ˜‰

warrior-blacklacesys-04

When you are going to blog about lingerie, maybe that is not the first idea that comes to your head *giggles*

But, I thought maybe it was about time to try something different. I always missed the mix and match of layers for the mesh clothing. It is really hard to wear parts of different outfits and designers with mesh clothing, if they are not made to be worn together. Mostly the sizes do not fit or something pokes through or what ever else does not work. When I put on the new “Cotton Candy” in black, with the amazing bra, waist corset, panties and garters, I just had the idea to experiment a little bit, since the whole lingerie set is a mesh body applier and would give me more freedom to mix and match with layers again ๐Ÿ™‚ PLUS I wanted to make a different post about one of the incredible lingerie sets from Blacklace ๐Ÿ˜‰

warrior-blacklacesys-06

[sys] released the “TWISP” outfit for the Fetish Fair 2016. The outfit contains a strapped body suit that just covers the most important private parts and a great pair of fingerless gloves. With the minimalistic straps it was just perfect, to go with the “Cotton Candy” lingerie set.

Who says lingerie is just something for the bedroom? *winks*

With the combination of those 2 outfits, the look already became very energetic and strong and more and more the idea of a warrior type look grew in my head. At the actual TFC round Bauhaus Movement has an amazing headpiece called “YEAH! Fashion Headpiece” which looked just as it was made for my idea :p The huge head piece with the feather looking parts all around and the amazing head band where the right addition to my warrior idea.

For the tattoos, certainly I chose White Widow again, Julie really is a body artist and I am just addicted to her creations. That became even more when I found out her newest makeup is compatible with the Genesis Lab 2.0 heads! The new “Couture” makeup is such an amazing mask looking eye art!

That is a very funny story as well.. I was looking for a mesh head I like for over a year now. Some were ok, but I never had the “YES!” feeling on any of the heads I tried. In the end I got a Catwa head as that was the one I liked the most but it was more a compromise than a real “YES!” Don’t get me wrong, Catwa does great heads and with the many different ones, they really make a statement. Catwa might be one of the best choices as there are the most appliers for those heads out there at the moment. But to me they are all very beautiful and smooth and I wanted something more character looking.

When I did not even think about a head, I saw the name of a wonderful friend in the Genesis Lab chat. We started talking and after a while I told her that I was looking for a particular head of Genesis but since Genesis is very limited with appliers and skins and as well do the most heads as Gachas… I kinda trashed the idea even if I liked their heads a lot. I came out that Danity Minx has a lucky hand with Gachas and she got a lot of the rare heads out of those and as well a few doubles. She gave me a few as gifts – very generous gifts – and I started trying them and when I put on a certain head… I immediately fell in love. DAMN my love fell on a Genesis head… that was my first intention.

warrior-blacklacesys-07

But I could not help it and so I try to work it as much as I can at the moment. I was told in the group, that the support is very slow to non existent and that many heads have issues and do not get updated. With the one I chose it seems I got lucky as only the lashes positioner is broken but you can get used to it, that it just works the other way round. Sadly non of the skins for Genesis comes with a no brow option, so I could not wear it as an everyday head anyways since one of my trademarks is exactly that. In PS I am able to remove them but not on the grid ๐Ÿ™

So we will see how that will go in the future… I have a light at the end of the tunnel, since a wonderful and kind skin maker offered me he maybe could take care of that ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 07/29/2016 – Lazy Afternoon

sys 4

Today I have again a post that fell together just by trying things ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometimes that is the best way to create looks – unplanned looks I just love it :p

sys 5

First I put on the “Sensa Tank Dress” and immediately fell in love with those huge buckle in the back and the amazing counter parts at the front. Usually this is meant to be a dress but I could not resist to play with it to see what I can come up with :p

After I tried various pants, shorts and skirts, I got stuck on the “Hunter Pants” from Pixicat. With the laced sides and the great sand color, they looked perfect to the “Sensa Tank Dress”. With the pants and the top the whole look took a more heavy casual look and so I added one of my favourite shoes to the outfit – the “Triumph Boots” from [GOS].

sys 3

ย The cool arm straps are part of the “In Flames” outfit from Asteria. With the huge buckles they matches so nice to the top with the buckle in the back ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I am really a short hair cut lover I could not pass the “No.Meaning” hairstyle of the actual round of On9 (July.. today is the last day you can find it there I guess) made by no.match.

sys 7

Now I needed a location to shoot. With this look I felt, that a inworld location would look better than an editorial shot in my studio. My first way lead me to one of the amazing Neva sims. I am sure you all know about those as they are the most awesome sims for photo shoots ๐Ÿ˜‰ If not you really should make your way to one of them. This time it was the Neva River Village. A wonderful sim with a lot of water, bridges and paths and a wonderful urban but modern and trendy look. I love the colors and tones and how everything works together so well for all of the Neva sims anyways what theme they have.

Summer Trend 2016 – Denim Shorties (featured in Eclipse Magazine July 2016)

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 01

Look #1

When Trouble asked me, if I would like to do a few pics for the upcoming (just released) Eclipse Magazine, I just said yes without even thinking about actual summer trends, as I really do love to take pictures and work with magazines. Then he immediately asked me, what summer trend I would like to go for… I did not look over all the summer trends the past few days, so I jumped to google to be informed before I choose.

While I was looking over all the amazing summer trends something immediately caught my eyes… Denim Shorties! All kind of shorts, mini skirts, used, with fringes and what not… That sounds like fun!

I told Trouble about my idea and he seemed to like it. First I thought this would be easy as I really do like denim in RL and SL, but I shall discover soon it sounded easier that it was in the end…

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 02

Look #2

So first of all, I looked through my inventory what kind of shorts, shorties and mini skirts in denim I would find – hell I had no clue how many non useful things I have when I type ‘denim’ in the search of my inventory…

ย Most of my favourite denim things are still layers and I did not wanna use old layer items this time… and the next problem – a usual problem with mesh items – sometimes different mesh parts do not fit over each other.

But after some serious searching, I found a handful denim shorties, which I totally love. Now I just need to style them. Because I was told so often, I always only do extreme styles and mostly dark and gothic looking ones, I wanted to do 5 totally different styles for this little spread in the Eclipse Magazine.

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 03

Look #3

For my first idea – Look number 1 –ย  I started with the “Booty Shorts” from [M.o.w] together with the “Havana” short and head wrap from [sys], the first look went to a more boho type of style. For the accessories I went with the “Vilma” earrings and the “Sile” necklace from Kunglers paired with the “Wooden Bracelet” from artilleri.

Look number 2 is based on the “Briony Shorts” from Erratic. For that look I was inspired by a picture I saw from a country side advert, which told about the great lake sides in germany ๐Ÿ˜‰ To achieve the summer casual look, I added the “Polly” top from Asia Rae and the amazing summer floppy “Laila” hat made by Zibska. For the shoes I chose the “Tropicana” wedges we made for Wicca’s Wardrobe (Yes Grand, we did that.. once *snickers*) The look I was going for,was something trendy, summer looking and as well something simple and kinda ‘girl next door’ looking.

The 3rd look, I wanted to do something more fashion forward in a hipster or clubbing look. I started off with the “Wendy Denim Skirt” made by GizzA. A super short denim mini skirt. First I added the “Dead Romance” tank from Mon Cheri, a tank I used for various styles already as it is a perfect top to go for many different looks and the sizes are made amazingly with the thought to wear something underneath. The mega trendy “Pulsar” glasses and backpack certainly come from [sys], the home for unusual and futuristic designs ๐Ÿ˜‰ The cool boots I found at Stelloane.

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 04

Look #4

For Look number 4 I wanted something that I would wear RL as well. Some loosely casual but trendy and chic. something I would use for shopping or just go to the university or drink a coffee out with some friends. I always liked the ‘college girl’ look even if I am not in that age anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰ The “Boyfriend Jeans Shorts” made by Maitreya, are one of my long time favourites. With their loosely fit they are a great everyday wear. I combined them with the “Liliana Top” from Glam Affair and put on the “Batschkapp” we made as a gift for the Indie Teepee event. Even if I like all 5 looks that might be my personal favourite out of them ๐Ÿ˜‰

My 5th and last look is some more native and maybe gypsy looking. The idea came out of some pictures I saw of american native fashion trends. The denim shorties for this style come from GizzA. The “Loose Denim Short” was a perfect start for the idea I wanted to go for. With the lightly dirty looking fabric and the ripped trims it was just perfect to add a more simple, and light top. The “Julia” top from Asteria perfectly went with the shorts and kinda put them more in the focus. The cool necklace was one of the first original mesh releases from PurpleMoon and the incredible hat and back bag again came from [sys].

It was great fun to explore and try different things for this special spread of denim shorties and I have to admit, I found some goodies in my inventory, which I already forgot that I have them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Achromatic – A Show Review

Zibska

Outfit: Zibska – “Gong”

Not too long ago, SCALA had – in cooperation with Windlight Magazine – a wonderful show going on, which I was allowed to walk as a model and as well to participate as a designer.

A collective of amazing designers were chosen to create this amazing concept and show. The theme was Achromatic. Achromatic means literally ‘without color’ but it as well can refer to greys, neutral colors and black…” you will find on Wikipedia if you insert the word ‘Achromatic’.

For the SCALA event, the designers were asked, to create something with bold shapes or colors. It was amazing to see how different various designer did interpret the given theme.

Outfit: Rayne – “Bad Secretary”

The runway as well was special made for this show. Redclaw Inshan, designed a wonderful white runway with some great geometric structures. This light and simple runway showcased all the amazing creations in a wonderful way. The colors really popped out of the runway and got a very special spotlight.

I had the pleasure to walk for some very amazing designers – Zibska, Ghee, Rayne, Riciell and Alpha Tribe. I would love some details on the stylings I made for the show ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the first picture above you can see the “Gong” outfit from Zibska. A very artistic and extraordinary outfit with the huge tentacles and the very impressing head-piece.

The second look, was based on the “Bad Secretary” outfit from Rayne. With the bold mustard and purple colors it made a real statement on the Achromatic runway.

Outfit: Ghee – “Prawn This Way”

My third outfit comes from ghee. With the “Prawn This Way” in black and the signal red makeup and headpiece, this outfit really is a head turning eye catcher.The tight pants and the modern shape of the top together with the colorful head parts and the black gloves really is a must have.

Outfit: Ricielli – “Kendal Jeans Skirt & Top” + R.ielli – “Annmarie Boots”

Last but not least, my 4th outfit came from Ricielli. The “Kendal” top and skirt combined with the “Annmarie” heels came with a huge color HUD so I was able to find 2 strong colors for the artistic white runway.

It was an outstanding show with a filled audience and to me the combination of a runway show, together with a huge art aspect really was something special.
