Flight of Fancy into the Darkness

At the moment I am trying to learn new PS tricks and techniques. I discovered my likings for dark background pictures with a very simple set and more extra ordinary poses, so that the focus is more on the person and the items that are being showcased.

When I started to work with black backgrounds, usually they looked kinda flat and I was wondering how you can still have the imagination of a room even if it is all dark. But som subtile lights which are not even really noticeable, will do the trick I read. The shadows on the avatar will as well help with that if you have something throwing shadows on your avatar that you, that you not really see. There are so many more things like reflections and what not, that I still try to learn properly before I am coming up with picture :p

Today it would be The amazing lingerie from Blacklace, the super sexy high heels from Glamistry and the adorable and incredible jewelry from EarthStones, which I would like to showcase.

I had the great pleasure to take a photo of Abraxxa Anatine, designer and owner of EarthStones, for the last issue of the Spotlight magazine. Abraxxa is such a wonderful and lovely person and her creativity has no limits. While we were shooting she was wearing one of her latest releases, the “Flight of Fancy” jewelry set.

When I saw it, I immediately fell in love with it. It was made for the last round of TLC but I am sure it will be in her main store now.

The set contains a pair of earrings, 2 bracelets as well as a short and along necklace. The details on this set are incredible. With the butterflies and the little studs and gems and all the filigree chain links… just amazing. The Set as well is HUD driven so you can customize the colors to your personal likings and your look.

For the shoes, I decided to go with the latest release of Glamistry. The “Lilium” heels are a pair of super sexy pumps. I love the high plateau heel on them and as well the simplicity. With that you can see the wonderful leather texture if the shoes and as well the great details like the seam.

The super cool nail polish was made by ChloeElectra for her brand .alme. I love the golden geometric lines that run over the colored nail πŸ™‚ and with the color they matched amazing to the jewelry and the lingerie!

The lingerie is not just an applier! This time Blacklace came out with a wonderful negligee made of mesh with a sexy transparency.Β  The panties and the garters are made of mesh as well, only the stockings are mesh body appliers. “Kelsey” you can purchase in many different colors as always with Blacklace designs πŸ™‚

The sofa I used was made by Katink. originally it comes with some poses, but for this post I just used various other poses and adjusted them to the sofa πŸ™‚

Tempest & Wicca wearing Blacklace – “Passione – Leo Print & Lace Bra Set”

Today I have something very special…

Tempest Rosca, an incredible photographer, an amazing model and what counts even more for me… one of the ‘oldest’ and best friends I ever met in SL.

Tempest and me go way back and share quite a long past. We met in the early days of our modeling back on 2008/2009. That makes about 7 years… holy… time goes by!

The more I was happy when she IMed me and said “Wic.. do not blog the next Blacklace you get, let’s do it together!” God how iI could even think other than yes, when I thought about Tempe’s amazing pictures – I would get an original Tempest Rosca shoot!

Since I know how important a vision is for a photographer, I asked her if she had a special styling in mind. She just said “Hold on I send you a snap in a few but think lioness, princess, queen…” That sounded about Tempe… we get lingerie and she is talking about lions *giggles* I just love her. She has her own way of craziness and it seems to get well along with mine :p

When we met, while she was arranging the poses she had in mind we again had some great time for talking. Do you know that feeling.. you have friends, that you do not see or talk to every day, but when you met them it feels like it would be like that? That Tempe and me share.. we both have our own Second Life, but it crosses here and there and the it feels again so close and familiar, just amazing. We talked about old times, changes, new times and it felt so good to just talk away without any fears to say something wrong or something that he other would take wrong. Tempe and me never ever had that issue, we can talk about everything even about things we dislike or disagree and it never ever hit our friendship. That is very rare for me and with that it has one of the highest value. Exactly that to me is real friendship. We do not need kissy kissy everyday and as well we can talk clear and straight, without taking it wrong from each other – that can be so freeing and relaxing… I have no clue how long we talked until she found the right poses, angles and setting but I enjoyed every single second of it.

When I saw the picture I was speechless… it is incredible and perfect and again I know why I admire Tempe’s skills for pictures.

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening and an incredible picture Tempe – and yes.. next time it will be my turn and I am looking forward to it!!!

Darkside? Did you ever think about, who does the Midnight Modelshift at Angel Dessous???

Did you ever think about who has the midnight shift for modeling at Angel Dessous? πŸ˜‰ These lovely ladies show of the dark side of Nando Korobases designs πŸ˜‰

First we have the “Cody”. A very sexy outfit that you can wear in different combinations to have different looks to show.

You can wear it with a jacket that makes the whole outfit a daily outfit or one for a very hot disco night πŸ˜‰ If you take off the jacket you have an amazing bra that looks very very sexy. You can choose if you wanna wear the great net body stocking or go without. The body stocking covers the legs and the lower body till the bra, and the net gloves match dreamily to this version. The fish net stockings are made with an amazing upper seam that has a fantastic buckle painted on it. If you decide only to wear lingerie you can just wear the bra and the panties without jacket and body stocking and you are the vamp of the night for your love πŸ˜‰Β  Also included to this great outfit are the belt and the great bracelets that match perfect to the whole outfit!

Up next we have a beautiful lingerie named “Rianna”. A seductive body that is closed by thin crisscross lines in the front with a high leg shaped panty. For this outfit you can choose 2 different versions of stockings. One as usual with straight seams on the top and another one with higher outsides and longer stockings. The sweet tattoo for chest or pelvis is included also, both as an underwear layer.

Our next outfit is called “Vanessa” and shows off a little more color than our first two black ones πŸ˜‰ Even if they are available in other colors also πŸ˜‰

This outfit is a multi talent. “Vanessa” can be worn as a daily casual outfit with the long pants and the little jacket that has amazing prim parts for the short upper sleeves. A bra covers the chest part and a cute belt accents the hips in a beautiful way. For spring you can wear that, for example for a nice shopping tour πŸ˜‰ You also can wear it as lingerie and for that you again have 2 different versions. One with a corset and one with just a bra. The stockings are connected to the panties with 4 amazing tiny garters. For this outfit we again have 2 amazing tattoo layer versions as an additional option. The whole outfit is made in 20 pieces including all parts that you can see in the picture.

The last outfit for the short introduction of the darker side of Nando Korobase is also a truly chameleon of an outfit with lots of possibilities to mix and match it. “Carry” can be worn like seen in the first pic with the long skirt and the jacket that makes the imagination ofΒ  a long sexy coat even if the belly is free πŸ˜‰

If you take off the skirt you have a sexy gogo club outfit with seductive hot pants. The jacket and the hot pants make a very sexy outfit with all the amazing jewelry parts and attachments like the belt and the bracelets. The stockings are without any garter andΒ  made with a sexy net seam that’s held in place by crossed lines in the front. If you take off the jacket you will see the stunning bra that goes perfect with the hot pants also, The great black tribal tattoo is again included as a separate clothing layer. If you like it more sexy just drop the hot pants and you will see the lovely panties with a very high leg seam up to the hips that show off your dreamy, sexy, long, well-shaped legs πŸ™‚

So now you know the darker side of Angel Dessous also and i have to admit I had great fun doing that post… it shows off a totally different site of Angel Dessous and also shows the many skills that Nando Korobase has to create outfits in different styles!

I hope you enjoyed my short “midnight models shift” trip πŸ˜‰
