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 πŸ˜‰ ) 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚ The rest kinda fell in place very smooth πŸ˜‰

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!

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

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

Β 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰ 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.

In a certain mood… playing with poses

White Room 4

Sometimes I really do like just roaming through my poses to see, if I can find any inspiration or develop some ideas based on poses.

This time I just put on one of my favourite fantasy skins lately, the “Amalthea” skin from La Petite Morte. I rarely saw such a light skin that still had all those wonderful details and it is still not white, it has a very dreamy tone.it comes in different versions, which follow an inspiration of the “Last Unicorn” One of them even has the darker star on the forehead where the unicorn of the enchanted Princess Amalthea is supposed to be, like we saw it in the movie πŸ™‚

White Room 3

The cool tattoo comes from TAOX Tattoos. I found it at the J&A Expo this year and with the amazing details and the huge size all over the body, I have to admit it pulled my view on that brand as i never heard about it before. As a tattoo addicted, you never can have enough places for good tattoos πŸ˜‰

TAOX provides appliers for nearly all popular mesh bodies and as well an Omega applier. The pack does not include any default avatar layer so you only can wear it with one of the mesh bodies.

The amazing horn on my forehead, was made by AiShA for the last round of the Enchantment event. For the hair I wanted something wild but still innocent and so my decision fell on the “Pocahontas” hairstyle from LeLutka. With the lightly windblown touch it looked perfect to the innocent vulnerable look of an enchanted unicorn πŸ˜‰

White Room 1

But now back to ‘random posing’ πŸ˜‰

Sometimes I really do like to go through my poses and just make it a challenge to shoot every pose I opened with the outfit I am wearing

That sometimes means to change the angle, if some parts would look awkward.Β  As well you can turn and rotate the pose stand to get an interesting angle. At times I get a weird feeling or view, but I still snap it, because sometimes later, when I work on it, it becomes more interesting as I thought on the first view πŸ˜‰ Shadows can do a big part as well to hide minor issues or errors. If nothing help, you always have the possibility to crop your picture. That as well sometimes gives a neat new view as originally thought. Sometimes you maybe just safe a shot with cropping it and other times the crop looks way more expressive and interesting.

Certainly it is easier, when you wear something that sticks close to the body. Some gowns or dresses can make a challenge like this nearly impossible. The “Siren ” ensemble from Pixicat was perfect for that purpose.

Urban Musing

ECLIPSE_WiccaFIN

This wonderful picture was done by the talented Tempest Rosca. We got the a theme for the last issue of the Eclipse Magazine, called Urban Musing. The trend becomes more and more popular. In many of the fashion cities you can find people who mix and match lingerie with normal urban casual, to create this new and modern look.

It was quite fun to experiment with lingerie and make something that can bw worn on the street πŸ˜‰

For more of those amazing looks you can take a peek on the February Issue of the Eclipse Magazine πŸ™‚
