It is incredible how many amazing terrifying designs jump on the grid at the moment! I know why I keep saying, the actual season is my personal Christmas season *grins wickedly*

At the moment I am watching TWD again and when I saw the new mask from DRD, it instantly reminded me about the “‘Whisperers”. With the flesh and metal parts it is a perfect combination of a scary, horrifying mask. The details are amazing crisp, but that we already know from DRD *winks*

For the top I wanted something rotten, ripped too and CerberusXing had the perfect design for that. Matching the basic apocalyptic scenery, I wanted some cool and special weapons and strapped, used shorts to still let the amazing stompers from DRD shine.

The collar is one of our latest releases for the Hallow Manor event and made the perfect finish for my look today, but I still would love to drag your attention to the closeup below… The incredible cool eyes are made by Madame Noir for the Salon 52 event. Together with the messy eye-shadow and lipstick from CAZIMI they completely kicked my imagination about what this woman could have been gone through, before she ran from that huge fire explosion. Certainly such a strong and powerful woman cannot be without a tattoo and it was no question what ink master she chose when she got it – Vegas Tattoo!

Come inside, don’t be afraid, I’ll keep you safe…

Hey there, little girl
Come inside I’ve got some sweet things
Put your hair in curls
Paint you up just like a drag queen

I don’t mind decay?
‘Cause you are the night that saves my day

Today I have a picture for you, which I created for my exhibition at the L’autre Oeil Gallery. They asked me to create 3 pictures for a special exhibition called “Halloween & Goth”. When I saw the Incredible “Plague Skeleton Creature” mask and hands from DRD, released at The Warehouse Sale, it was a must to use them for the picture idea that I had! The hands even come with a BoM layer to make a smooth seam between the hands and arms. While I was styling, I realized that CerberusXing just released new horns at Necrosis another cool event for this season you should not miss out!

The cool tattoo, which perfectly matched the look, I found at Nefekalum Tattoos and the awesome, filigree outfit was made by ERSCH.

This time of the year is like my personal Christmas season. I do love all the dark, mystic and scary things – I know… no news so far – and I can promise, that I already have a few more ideas in mind in that kind of style, for my next few blog posts 😉

Lines of Light

“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding…”
[-William Gibson, Neuromancer-]

I wanted to post this way earlier as it does mostly feature designs from the ACCESS Cyberfair, but as I already write about… with looking for a new job my RL is completely upside down and takes more attention that usual. I do hate it  – I am usually a person that likes to have at least something stable in my life where I can fill all the other gaps with my own schedule and activities. At the moment I do not even know what the next day will bring as I try to find a new job and run from one appointment to another – it does pay off I have to admit but it is exhausting and time consuming. But I do not want to complain about – that is life. I am just trying to explain why my posts are sometimes a little behind.  I hope you will find all the amazing items in the designers main stores by now 😉

Nevertheless I want to put your attention on some of the amazing creations I am wearing in my pictures today. Since we have the closeup right above, Please take a closer look at that fantastic neon eyebrows and eye-covers. They are made by Madame Noir and they come with a color HUD, which allows you to customize this fantastic design to all of your cyber styling! What as well we can see are parts of the incredible vest and top from A&Y. The “Raizer” top and vest as well were released at the Cyberfair and like all oof the amazing designs of A&Y they perfectly fit together and as well do have a huge HUD to color ever little face of that incredible cyber creations.

Since I slaughtered the backdrop on my first picture with PS so much, I just left it untouched in the other 2 pictures, so you can get an idea what that incredible backdrop actually looks like 😉

I hope that I can post more regularly soon – I really miss my “free time” which I usually take, to make pictures and relax from busy, stressy days.

Out of my Head!!!

TUNES

I cannot breathe through toxic skies
You pollute me with your lies
Thought I died ‘long with my sense of time
And I’m not alright feel trapped in my mind
I can’t escape even if I tried
Too little too late too weak and too kind
My heart is on fire and I’m burnin’ alive
So I guess I’m not fine still trapped in my mind

[Adam Oh]

Sometimes you have so many things on your mind that give you more headaches than good that you would like to tear them out… do you know that feeling? At the moment I exactly feel like that. There is so much things in my head and some anxiety what the future will bring. Even in SL I had some things happen that really did trow me down. In the end SL isn’t in any ways different that RL even if you try to stay away from drama and negative things… people who want to drag you down, will have their stage to do so.

Anyways – that mood I was in, paired with the cool “Eye Spike” and the super cool “Broken Eyes from Madame Noir, todays  pictures came to life 😉 Now that I wrote about it and made those pictures I already feel better! I hope you had a wonderful day without any trolls or “brain refugees” trying to make it a bad one. I will now move on to some more pictures for my next post!

Bounty Hunter

Despite knowing the journey and where it leads, I embrace it, and I welcome every moment of it.

[Arrival 2016]

I LOVE when “accidents” happen while I am setting up my shoot… if they are “positive”!

Today it was a lightning surprise, which started with a mistake of moving light prims around. I was playing again with some Mainframe goodies today. I thought of something different, something what I not set did with all the amazing cyber and sci-fi designs I got there. I have no idea what exactly it was that brought me to this idea, but probably I watched too much Star Wars lately. I saw the “Cyberdoll Helmet” from Fika and instantly had the vision of Boba Fett, the bounty hunter.

I wanted a strong, robotic female version of a bounty hunter and her hideout on a dark, desert planet. With the super cool “Wreck Hideout” from 22769 I had the perfect scenery to set up my shoot for my vision.

While I was playing with lights, again something happened what I usually hate like hell… I tried to move a set of lights and my camera flipped while editing and the lights ended up “somewhere” behind me. When I reset my camera and wanted to try again I realized, it does look fantastic! Those kinda of accidents I really do love, it just makes it harder to reproduce it if you want to shoot more than one picture and have the lights attached *frowns*. Then they keep moving with every new pose and you hardly get the same result – it took a while*giggles* It is a strange habit to attach lights when you can rezz them as well, but for what ever strange reason I get different results wearing them instead of rezzing them. The Mainframe event only lasts till the 13th of august so if you want to get some of those extremely awesome goodies – you just have  few more days!

Time Warp!

TUNES

It’s astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely
Not for very much longer
I’ve got to keep control
I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me
And the void would be calling
Let’s do the Time Warp again

[Rocky Horror Show]

And again we are at Mainframe with the designs of todays post. I really love that event, it gives you so much crazy and awesome things to play with. Today I wanted to post something about that super amazing time portal from Ex Machina. It is a huge design, so I had to think about a way to showcase the full creation. I didn’t want to just stay in front of the portal and started playing with the idea of being swallowed by it :p – That was the outcome of that and I really enjoy that thought.

Cyber Wasp!

Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through.

[Jonathan Swift]

After I was a little bit shocked about a current hair gacha, I decided to just not to shop today and instead do a picture with the amazing things I got at the Mainframe event :p

Mainframe is one of ma favorite events of the year as it is all about cyber, cyberpunk and sci-fi stuff – I always find some awesome, weird things there…

For example that little accessory I am wearing at my right eye. A cool socked in the middle of the eye and a plug with a cable connected to that… incredible awesome *grins* Who can have such a cool, sick idea? Certainly Gryphon Vendetta, designer of UNGOD and Poseidon poses. I love how his mind goes along with mine sometimes so well! I loved his poses (which I used for this post as well) for along time, but since he started making little meshes for his poses and for accessories i just love him even more… Another designer, which recently caught my attention, is Imogen Veles (Draetia). She owns the brand “unstable.”. I saw her designs on events for quite some time, I as well bought stuff from her before but since she made a few cyberized items she even more went into my shopping focus. This time she offers a cool halo with and without a glow option at the Mainframe event – just perfect for my picture idea! I already have another sci-fi idea which I started styling – which I am totally excited about as well – so I will not bother with any more text or descriptions – all details you can find below in the credits anyways 😉 See you soon here on my blog!

Black Widow

TUNES

Kiss me black widow.
Have no mercy on me tonight.
Feed on me, black widow.
Come feel me.
I want to touch you.

No rescue,
I already carry your poison within me.
All my vitality,
sinks into the abyss of lust,
tonight.

[Original German Lyrics from Eisbrecher]

When I styled todays look, I already had that song (above) in mind and since it is German, I tried to translate a few  lines for you all 😉

Again I am showcasing some of the incredible releases from the Mainframe event. The event has about half-time by now and some creators even put half-time news or gifts out us all – you really should check them out 😉

When I saw the insect legs from AMBIX, I immediately had an idea what I would like to do with them. I never saw something like that before in Second Life in such an amazing quality and with even an AO coming with them… The Black Widow jumped into my mind and settled down while I was looking through some other new releases of the Mainframe event. I marked all the goodies of the Mainframe event blow my credits you you can be sure to not miss any of them.

Sometimes I have the desire to tell a little story with my pictures and with the Black Widow, I had to have a victim for her and I didn’t want to go for the most obvious and use a human this time (maybe another time *grins wickedly*). That is the reason for the awesome, little dragonfly with me on my pictures.

So my biggest challenge this time was, how to  get my Black Widow in a cyberpunk or sci-fi looking surrounding without looking too weird *giggles* While I played around with the “hex frames” from Toxxic, I did remember the “Neon Retrowave Landscaping” set, which I picked up on a FLF. I KNEW they would come in handy some when!

Now that I had my perfect set I was able to go some more crazy with more news from Mainframe! Normandy made some really interesting pieces and since I was already wearing insect legs, the cool “Auto Fangs” with the matching lip stick, just matched perfectly in my imagination and the “Oeil” set with the eyes and the forehead accessories made the face look just perfect! I love cyberpunk and sci-fi sets and styles a lot as you can go crazy with kinda no limits not being called constantly a freak :p

Before I will run back to SL to do some more pictures, I would like to drag your attention to my panties and collar, which are made by CerberusXing. I already showcased both before but lately I simply cannot live without CerberusXing anyways plus I saw exciting news on his Flickr stream. He is remodeling his store completely and gave a little sneak preview (HERE) – it is really worth watching it!

And as I already said… back to Second Life for some more picture and fancy ideas *snickers*

Kunoichi

Kunoichi: A kunoichi (Japanese: くノ一) is a female ninja or practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo). During the feudal period of Japan, ninjas were used as killers, spies and messengers. The training of kunoichi differed from the training given to male ninjas, although they had a common core of skills, being trained in martial arts, such as taijutsu, kenjutsu, and ninjutsu. Kunoichi training tended to prioritize female skills.

[Wikipedia]

Again I had a Japanese desire and with the awesome “Masami” gown from Fellini and the super amazing Katana headpiece called “Shakatu”, it was time to full fill that desire 😉 Both of those amazing creations you can find at the NEO Japan event this  month.

I needed shoes and first I thought about heavy boots as a fighter would wear them and then I was watching a movie… Sucker Punch! some of those really strong and kick ass looking ladies had heels on! Even if I doubt that you can fight and run on heels that great, the “Phoebe Slingbacks” from [Gos] looked so great to the whole look so I could not resist adding them to my look 😉

Having already some ‘girly’ parts to my look, I thought I can add the stunning “Mayra” nails from Formanails as well and still be able to holding my Katana right *giggles*

I still find a lot of inspiration in the web for my posting ideas and this time it were the Kunoichi, that inspired me.

First I wanted to shoot it with a simple background, but then when I tried the Katanas, which had those cool flames coming with them, the fire idea was born. The poses for this amazing shoot certainly were made by Poseidon Poses, one of my favorite pose stores especially when it comes to action and movement in pictures.

“I’ll be there when your reality drowns!”

TUNES

You’ll be seein’ me in your dreams
Even when your reality drowns

There’s a bright side
To every wrong thing
If you’re lookin’ at me through the right eyes
Darkness in my name
Don’t you wanna come and play on the cool side
Don’t be so shy

There’s a pleasure in hidin’ from the sun
No I was never one for pretty weather
I’d rather be a creep, baby follow me into the water
I’ll take you to the darker

[Kailee Morgue]

Again I was in a freaky mood and since the Mermaid Cove event from Flair for Events, I do have a little Siren addiction *giggles*
When I saw the “Liquid Soul” gacha from :Moon Amore:, I was thinking quite a while what I could do with it. I wanted to do something artistic as the whole set screamed for it, but as well I did not want to make it too busy, to not distract from that great design too much. After trying several things from simple black backgrounds to some simple props that didn’t really make any sense, the siren idea came back to my mind and with the awesome halo, that makes the whole look even more wild, the idea was born! The idea to do some water shots again made me excited. While I was again using the sim of a close friend, since I do not have a huge water spot on our land. But all I tried .. Linden water didn’t do what I wanted. So I had to find something different. I went back on my platform to see what I could do to “fake” a water scene. After trying different things I just rezzed a blank white floor prim and put a water texture with a high transparency on top with a certain color I liked. In my case it even was a frozen water texture as the effect was kinda cool :). Later in my post processing, I used some water brushes with some more ripples and did just put it on top of the one I snapped inworld with 30% transparency to get the more rough sea feeling before I added some splashes to add a little action feeling and movement.

I immensely enjoy my freedom lately, to do interesting shoots and have extraordinary outfits from all over the grid, let my freak come out here and there more than usual and just let my mind fly to see what comes out in the end. Sometimes I do not even know myself what will be the end result, when I start fooling around with styling. It is possible, that I start with a complete different idea from what it will be in the end. Sometimes it even takes days until I am completely satisfied with the final result and then it takes me again some times – sometimes days – until I am happy with the post processing. It just feels amazing to have that freedom and time – I am grateful that designers still like me on their blogger list, even if I get dragged away by emotions, feelings, visions and new tutorials for post processing my pictures 😉 It means a lot to me that you trust me, bare with me and my funky ideas and time frames!
