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 πŸ˜‰ (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 πŸ˜‰

Fantasy Faire 2013 – Rfyre & The Plastik + News from Finesmith

Fantasy Faire 2013 - Rfyre + Plastik full

From the 20th of April until the 28th of April you can find amazing creations various designers made for themes like fantasy, role play, steam-punk and Sci-Fi and all that is content of dreams at the SecondLife Fantasy Faire 2013. Β  Incredible builders created awesome sims for that event where you can make fantastic pictures or just explore and get caught away in your dreams and imagination.

The Fantasy Faire is one of the most huge events that take part in the RFL. RLF – Relay for Life – is a charity organisation that supports the American Cancer Society.

The whole event takes part on 10 sims. The are arranged in a nice way with a path that you can follow to explore all of them. On 8 you will find the creations that were made from all the designers to support the RLF. The last 2 sims are the event sims, where presentations, music events, concerts, auctions and silent auctions take place. To make it more interesting for visitors, a super amazing hunt is taking place where you can find many incredible little items.

Today I would like to take a closer look on the creations of Rfyre and The Plastik.

Rfyre created two wonderful full outfits for the Fantasy Faire and one I would like to spotlight today. The “Lux Fantasy” outfit is part wise made with mesh. The corset and parts of the arms sleeves are mesh made and the amazing bodice comes as a layer. The full outfit as well contains a long skirt, that’s open in the front, but for the post I just skipped that part, because for the aggressive running look I liked it more without the skirt ;). The amazing, cool looking boots with the detailed texture and the awesome buckles atthe side are part of the outfit.

As always Raven Pennyfeather, owner and designer of Rfyre, points with her amazing textures. She has such an eye for the detail and her creations mirror that. If you take a closer look at the textures you can see how filigree and perfect they are made and so she gives the gothic look a very elegant and high fashion touch. The chest part looks like silver plate decorations and give the whole outfit a very strong amazon looking touch. The wonderful chains that run over the cleavage again show how detailed Raven works for her designs. Her creativity seemd to never come to an end as she always comes with new ideas and combinations, that amaze me. It is always a honor to blog her creations :). The black silver look of this outfit really makes a wonderful base for realizing your own fantasies in many ways πŸ™‚

The wonderful huge jewelry is one of the newest releases from Finesmith. The “Truth” set is available for male and female and it contains the necklace, earrings, shoulder parts and a bracelet. The male version just is a little bit bigger sized. The dark silver metal goes wonderful with the black gems and the long spikes already gave a very demon looking attitude and so it was perfect for this styling ;).

The hair is one of my favourite styles from EMO-tions. The “Solitude” hair has a very special option as you have two hairstyles in one that are to change with a menu. If you click it you are asked if you wanna have ‘Style A’ or ‘Style B’ and with a sweet gesture it changed the look after you made your choice. For the “Solitude” style as well one version has the forehead chain like in the post and the other shows without the chain.

The skin as well is a Fantasy Faire contribution and it comes from The Plastik. The “Arkasia” skin in the ‘Paua” color was the perfect addition to my demon style. As I told before in another post you have several options for each skin and color in the pack and this time I decided to go with the ‘bare’ version, that only has a scale framed face and some scales on the body. The “Bloodless Silver” eyes are as well from The Plastik and I had them in the skin folder as well. Together with the “Dark Shadow”, the “Smudgy Shadow” and the “Lip Stripe” that came together with the “Arkasia” too the demon look was perfect and I just added some wings from Material Squirrel.

As well an amazing hunt just started at the Fantasy Faire… so hurry there and release the fantasy you carry inside you ;) (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Fairelands%20Junction/128/128/23)

Fashion Faire 2013 – EMO-tions, Paper Moon & Plastik

Fantasy Faire 2013 - EMO-tions-plastik-papermoonfull

Today I would like to lead you down into the ocean with EMO-tions, Paper Moon and Plastik :).

As I saw the items from Paper Moon I thought about, wich fantasy direction I could go. Paper Moon offers a top and a skirt in different shades of purple, pink and beige for the Fantasy Faire. As I was playing again with the fantastic skins from The Plastik, I got the idea of a fantasy mermaid looking girl deep down in the ocean. So I took the “Synjarni Silver Tribal Fusion” top fromΒ  Paper Moon to the “Arkasia – Kryv” skin made by The Plastik. In the skin pack you find several versions of the skin, as well eyes and different makeup versions. I decided to go with the Atlantic version, because of the style idea I had. The scales round the eyes and over the body are not blanket the skin too much and let the human side still exist in a wonderful way. The mesh “Synjari” top from Paper Moon with it’s amazing texture and the filigree ornaments made a nice base for the styling together with the mermaid tail from FATEbecome. The wonderful “Paradise” hairstyle was made from by EMO-tions as well for the Fantasy Faire 2013. The long hair is available in black , natural, fantasy blue and fantasy turquoise. For this post I chose the natural version. The jewelry part of the forehead and the beautiful feathers are as well part of the hairstyle and make the awesome fantasy look perfect.

To add a a little playful touch I added some feathers from Fancy Fairy and to underline the underwater look with a jewerly piece, I decided to wear the “Kitsch Couture” necklace from Finesmith as it reminded me of those flexible sea anemones.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 12/26/2012 – Asian Touch

LeeZu - Half

One of LeeZu‘s latest releases is a wonderful mesh combination of a dress and boots and as well the popular “Nif Nif” gloves are now available in mesh.

The new “Kaya Gown” is a wonderful mixture of a long and short dress to the same time. For the left leg you have a huge slit that shows off the whole sexy leg and on the right side the skirt goes down to the ankle.

LeeZu - Full

The “Kaya Gown” comes in many different colors and I chose the black version for this post, because I liked the combination of black, red and the golden ornaments so much. The super sexy overknee boots repeat the golden ornaments on the leg and as well at the heels!

LeeZu - Shoes

The inner of the skit brings back the red color that we see under the chest. Even the upper end of the boots carry the same color and little buckle that we saw on the gown under the chest. The “Nif Nif” gloves make a wonderful shape for the hands. The option to have hands and feet made with mesh adds a lot mor possibilities for the creators and as well makes them so much more realistic πŸ™‚ To finish my asian touch idea, I chose the “Warrior” hair from epoque with the 2 crossed sticks behind the bun. The huge necklace from Swallowtail I have for a very long time and by searching for an appropriate one it fell into my hands again πŸ˜‰

To see more of the latest LeeZu releases you can takeΒ  a look at the LeeZu Mainstore and see for yourself πŸ˜‰

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Monaco 2012 by Tres Beau

Our Miss Monaco 2012, Miss Vivienne Darcy, was allowed to walk this lovely piece of gold in representing the second smallest country of the world. Monaco as well is the second smallest monarchy in the world and the most densely populated country in the world. From all the news papers and TV reports we know that the rich and beautiful live in Monaco with all their yachts, motor boats and expensive lifestyle. According to that Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau, designed this incredible golden gown for Miss Monaco 2012. The basic dress is made with so awesome skills that you really can see the golden shine what seems not that easy, as gold and silver are two of the most difficult colors to work with I was told. The huge prim parts on the side and in the back add even more elegance to the whole dress.

First I was thinking about huge and super sophisticated jewelry but then… I did not want to drag any attention of the gown. So I searched a bit and found an awesome set of Kunglers Extra, that I got not too long ago. It was inΒ  more red golden tone but it for me completed the outfit without overdoing it πŸ™‚ If you wanna join the club of the sophisticated high-class fashionistas, the “Miss Vivienne” gown shouldΒ  not be missing in your inventory πŸ˜‰ So make your way to the Tres Beau Mainstore and get your golden piece of art πŸ™‚

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Monaco 2012 by Tres Beau

The wonderful and cute national costume for Miss Monaco 2012, Miss Vivienne Darcy, was made by Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau. Again Kimmera did a great research, to create this beautiful national costume for Miss Monaco 2012. Many traditional parts you can find on the “Miss Monaco” dress if you compare the outfit to google search results of traditional clothing of Monaco. I admire Kimmera for her careful research, when she starts designing national costumes for Miss Virtual World. All of her creations have really a real based theme and you can discover the country from seeing the costume. The awesome love for the detail Kimmera puts in her creations you can see again at the “Miss Monaco” dress. The ruffles, the delicate corset, the hat, the cute little black ribbons that are used for the blouse and the hat and all those amazing and perfect placed textures… that’s really high-class designing. The skirt carries a very filigree lace texture over the opaque basic and adds a touch of elegance as well. “Miss Monaco” now is available at the Tres Beau Mainstore.
