If I had known the world was ending…

I never was the typical pretty, beauty or girly type – neither SL nor RL – even if sometimes I even enjoy doing that for SL looks, but thats more rare i guess ;). I never was cagey about my addiction to strong, different and attitude looks and styles. The more I was happy when I saw the “Inana” outfit from [sYs]. It just called for something strong and edgy and since I started watching post apocalyptic soaps on Netflix again… I had a feeling that this could go exactly in that direction πŸ˜‰

I am well aware that I probably would not survive looking like that in such a futuristic environment, since running on high heels always fails at some point, but since I do love fashion, I want to combine both of it and create a modern, strong looking style. The outfit comes with top and shorts as well as the straps. You have the choice to add the harness or just leave it be and wear only top and shorts. The fatpack has a HUD to change several parts of the outfit to 16 colors and 2 metals. Typical for [sYs] it comes in all popular mesh body fits.

The super cool boots were made from Elisabetta Hyun, owner and designer of UTOPIA@Design. I already said so many times how much I admire her skills for sharp and crisp texture details. The “Mirka” boots do not disappoint about that either. It is just amazing how much details shoes can have, from the basic fabric to even the most tiny seams – stunning! Another neat advantage for shoes from UTOPIA@Design is the HUD. You get 2 pages on the HUD, one with some ready made presets for a quick styling and the second page for a detailed color customization. As well on the first page you will find another cool feature on the bottom typical for UTOPIA@Design. You have 5 different glossiness options. With those you can have every feeling from leather to nearly latex on some boots, which makes them very versatile.

The hair I found in the latest Bound Box. Bound Box is a quarterly subscription box for fetish and kinky lovers. Spellbound’s contribution was the “Control” hair with that amazing face harness. To make sure it does fit on every head, Spellbound included 2 jaw shapes for the harness, but you as well can resize it via a script (just left click the hair) if it doe snot fit 100%. I did not have to change anything that just move it forward slightly – you just can use your edit tool for that. What as well is a neat detail – The hair comes with a styler HUD for 4 different versions of the hair. If you have the hair in front hanging down over your chest you even get a small and a large version for that particular style.

The poses as well as the crossbows are part of the “Post Apox” set from Poseidon. Poseidon is still one of my number one stores for dramatic and action poses with attitude. Since Gryphon Vendetta, owner and designer of Poseidon, provides mirror poses most of the time, it is really easy to adjust your poses to your set and picture.

Again I had way too many pictures for the post and it was really hard to choose 3 for today. Do you know that feeling if you like a setting, the background and then find like 50 poses that would work and in the end you have to decide which pictures you will post process and use for the post.

Beware! – You never know who’s around…

Today I tried to do a different picture, but if you caught up in a theme, nothing else just wants to work… So we are back to the post apocalyptic style and probably have even one more over the next days. On 27th Thereafter closes and hopefully my mind can wrap around something else then at least for a while πŸ˜‰

Today I built a little set on my own as I wanted to showcase some more of the amazing landscaping items, accessories, clothing and poses, that were made for the Thereafter event.

Today I would like to start with the poses. The whole set – including the pistols – was made as an exclusive release for Thereafter by Gingerfish Poses. The set is called “One Shot” set and to me they are perfectly matching the theme. I really do love the movement and action they have to it, a very strong attitude. You can use them for so many different angles and I am sure they would work without pistols and for a nother theme as well. All the poses are so well made I did not have to adjust my shape nor anything else and could use them right as they came. That is kinda rare, as I am usually to tall for most of the poses and have to adjust my normal shape a lot to make it fit the poses. Certainly the whole set is bento compatible if you already own bento hands. In my case it was the Maitreya hands and they worked perfectly with the poses.

The cool dress, which I totally fell in love with when I saw it the first time was designed by !go!. The “Zulu” dress comes in many different colors and with all the amazing details it is a little art piece itself. It is very well rigged as well, even with the poses, that really have some action to it did not break at all. Theis dress is definitely a must have if you like post apocapytic styles πŸ™‚

On all four pictures, I mainly used items for my set, which are made exclusively for the Thereafter event and I will credit them all in the end so I do not confuse the hell out of you and make you going back and forth between the pictures.

With a closer look to my face you will see that wonderful forehead ornament. I used it in black but Cureless [+] has many more colors included in the HUD of the “Leonius Marking”. Combine with the “Apocalypse Paint” is an amazing makeup applier from Veechi. You have 4 different options of that amazing face-art on the applier HUD.

So many exclusives, that fell together to one style.. it is just awesome. The cool gas mask as well you can find on the Thereafter event from Cubic Cherry. It as well comes with a texture HUD and resizer so you can make it fit either to your system head or various mesh heads as well.

What as well jumped to my eyes was the amazing “Myla” hair from Mina. I anyways love shaved hairstyles but that one even comes with 2 versions of hairbases and the one with the cut lines i loved the most (On the fist picture you can see it very clear).

Even the earring, which sadly is covered by the shadow in the picture above is for sale at the event as a full set. The “Noxx” set contains earrings and a collar plus a neat HUD that lets you color the whole set in various gold and silver combinations.

Together – Even if the World fell apart

I am so caught by the Thereafter event and it’s creations and exclusives I could do nothing else that just snapping pictures all day long in post apocalyptic outfits on the Thereafter sim :p

Today is very special to me because Red usually never agrees or even asks me to do pictures with him. He usually rarely changes clothes, but with the “Survival Mask & Helmet” from ~isil~ he could not resist πŸ˜‰

So while he was styling his helmet, I was thinking what I could do since I had blogged the mask already a few days ago, BUT without the helmet!

This time I want to show the helmet AND the mask πŸ˜‰ Even if you could wear the helmet only as well, but I just loved the look of the combination of both so much – together with Red it looked like we were hunting or exploring πŸ˜‰

Red as well has a weapon addiction and the theme and looks allowed weapons as well – great fortune for cool pictures together with him. The weapons we use are mainly rom Breach, only for some poses I used the pose props pistols from Gingerfish, which I will showcase on a nother post soon, just because they were modifiable and fitted better into my little hands*snickers*

When I was looking for poses – couple poses I am not that familiar with as I rarely use them, especially those kind of poses – and I discovered that I have so many older ones I never used from various events. As you know I am not a huge fan of simple standing poses anymore for pictures, as I really do love movement and action shown in pics, so I wanted to find some that are in that direction too. When I found a few that I liked, we went again on the Thereafter sim for pictures – I so do enjoy that sim and I am already sad that the event will be over at the 27th and the sim will be gone πŸ™

I made so many pictures… it really was hard to decide which ones to use for the post – not to mention how much fun I had doing pics with Red, since that happens so rarely πŸ˜‰

I just can warmly commend the Thereafter sim and the event to you. It is an amazing experience and around the stores of the amazing designer – which made wonderful items according to the theme and the event – you can find so many cool corners and spots for pictures or just hang out and chat and enjoy the environment until the 27th of August.

Roaming around in Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW Nimue 1

Sometimes you are in a mood you can’t describe… it is a feeling you will not find any words for – neither good or bad.

One of those days it was when I was just wandering around in one of our latest releases for Wicca’s Wardrobe. It is those days when you do not feel inspired at all and everything you start seems to not work for what ever reason. Luckily I do not have such days too often :p . But when it happens, the best usually is to wander around, try some locations of the SL destination guide or go through my old landmarks and see if they are still there or if I can find some source of inspiration by just roaming around.

WW Nimue 4

Some when my way brought me to Ironwood Hills, one of my favourite sims actually πŸ™‚ . The creators of the sim change it frequently to a new design and look but always in a dark post apocalyptic theme with a horror touch, which I like a lot my self. This time I found a new layout again when I landed and I was very curious what I would find this time.

I landed in a warehouse with all kind of mannequins.. the dark version of those ;). then you make your way our through an abandoned looking town part before you enter a dark carnival fair it seems. You way leads you through a huge clown head… more specific, you have to walk over its tongue through its head. At the place after, you will find all kind of different things and I do not wanna tell too much as you really should see this place by your own and discover all the amazing and as well terrifying things there πŸ˜‰ What caught my eye though was a huge Ferris Wheel, which reminded me about a thriller movie. There was one similar at Pripyat near Chernobyl, what made the whole trip over the sim even more exciting πŸ˜‰ At the back side of the sim I found an abandoned Asylum with… no just see for yourself πŸ˜‰

WW Nimue 2

When I started my trip I was wearing the “Nimue” set, that we made for the still running round for We <3 RP. it was styled in a more medieval way as I was fooling around for vendor pics ni that look andΒ  I just had put it back on. But the more I was wandering over the sim the more I wanted to do some pics and so I had to change the attitude of the outfit a little bit to match the scenery. I added the “Nacha Set”. The “Nascha Set” is our actual item for The Secret Affair. I changed the color of the outfit – the leather parts to black and some of the cloth parts to red –Β  and matched the accessories to it. For the shoes I just put the black version of the “Gypsy Boots” instead of the brown πŸ˜‰

WW Nimue 6

Β Now I just needed some hair and makeup, which did fit more towards a post apocalyptic themed surrounding. The choice fell on the “Neva” hair, that I got as a special present longer ago and the “Fighter Eyeshadow”from Corvus paired with a red eyeshadow from L.Fauna. For the poses I just went through all kind of modeling poses, but for this special case it just felt wrong to pose as a model and so I started to look through my photo poses and found all kind of different ones, which just had a little bit more “movement” in them even if they were static ;).

WW Nimue 5

Overall I had so much fun and actually found some inspiration to enjoy this trip and all the pictures. The more I tried the more pictures came out and I really had a hard time to choose the few for today. Again some loosely journey around did it to find something to work with without any special intention πŸ˜‰

I really can just recommend pressure free time and looking around when you feel like I described it in the beginning. For me it always is the solution to not be depressed, that I again wasted a day without being productive in any kind πŸ˜‰

Outbreak – A world after tomroow…

Post Apocalyptic 2

Yes, I have an addiction for post apocalyptic looks…

I do not know why, but maybe it is the strong attitude, the cool survival look or the fact of a very energetic instinct of self-preservation that makes the whole scenario and it’s fashions so attractive to me.

Today I was not looking for a special style in the beginning, but when I was wandering over a few post apocalyptic sims I discovered the “Outbreak” sim. A survival roleplay sim with an urban post apocalyptic flair. (more information you will find at www.outbreak.sl)

When I was roaming over the sim and saw its many different places, locations and RP sections, I more and more wanted to dress me like a part of this fantastic scenario, even if I will never find enough time to actually really RP at the moment.

Post Apocalyptic 1

So I ran home and looked for someting appropriate to put on.

I started with the “Natasha Corset” from Azuchi. It is available at the actual round of We <3 RP and with the amazing shoulder strap and the incredible detailed corset it was a wonderful basic part for a corset lover πŸ˜‰

Sometimes I get the feeling that bare arms are like a hole in a styling and so I searched through my inventory, what I could use to cover my arms and give the look still a cool attitude. After some time i found the “Sleevies” from PEQE. I know I got them from an event, as I thought something like this would be useful someday but I cannot remember which one it was. Since they are not that new I guess they can be found at their main store now πŸ˜‰

For the pants I wanted something shiny as well, as the corset had a very amazing shine to it too. I was looking through my pants folder, but most of the pants were too high and poked through the corset. Finally I tried the “Anakri” pants I made for Wicca’s wardrobe longer ago. They are still some of my fave pants of the store πŸ˜‰ and with the HUD you get 6 different options in black and white to choose from.

Post Apocalyptic 7

The cool heavy boots are made by wonderful friends of mine for their label “FrEgo”, which you still can find on Marketplace (https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/117990)

While I was trying a lot of different hair and not one did look right, I remembered the awesome “Kazakh” leather cap from [sys] with the cool goggles attached to them. With this cap I only needed a hair base, as the cap would be big enough to hide any hair inside of it πŸ˜‰

For the tattoo I again went with one of the newest ones from White Widow, the “Charade”. It is available at the actual Epiphany event as a gacha. One exclusive rare tattoo in 3 colors, 4 exclusive common items you can mix together in 3 colors as well and one exclusive tattoo you only can buy with Epiphany points, which you will not be able to get after the event is over.

Post Apocalyptic 6

The amazing face ornaments are from Elysium and together with the Face makeup from Nuuna’s – which is one of my favourite stores for interesting and outstanding looking face art – it made the perfect look for such a tenacious look πŸ˜‰

Certainly I had to have some piercings as well. The cool septum was made by Real Evil and the kick ass ear piercings coming from House of Darcy.

Post Apocalyptic 3

Ready styled I went back to the amazing Outbreak sim and continued my little roam over the sim, when I figured out it was not only one sim… it was 2. Both are built with an amazing eye for details and all the people I met were very friendly and did not mind me taking pictures. I just was asked to not disturb the ongoing RP or violate privacy, what to me is anyways obvious.

Post Apocalyptic 4

Post Apocalyptic Mood

MoonElixier 4

A Post Apocalyptic Poem

All these days are filled with rust,
With nothing living on the earth’s crust.

Ships and cars and planes and hearts,
Are all that you’ll find,
But who said that the human race has become refined?

MoonElixier 3
Civilization has ended… Yes,
Cultures have been removed… Yes,
Common sense ceases to be relevant… Yes,
But was it not compulsory before?

Perhaps the era of technology has ended,
And most souls of the past have descended,
But we are still human after all…
Aren’t we?

MoonElixier 2
Does a smart phone and a suit and a job and a home,
Make us the humans we have all known,
Or is there something inside of all of us,
Something that helps the wounded,
Instead of our own.

Maybe it’s the feeling inside when we see another,
The rush of excitement, pain, fear and the next world,
To discover.

MoonElixier 1

Maybe it’s the thought of putting down,
What has so much to offer just for your own needs,
Greedy…
Needy…

I don’t see a difference from this world and the last,
Perhaps someone I stumble apon will shut me down fast,
Or perhaps they will nod and walk on, right past.

[by Lewis Cavallo]
