Lazy afternoon at the Record Store

When I got the amazing record store from 22769, I immediately wanted to do a music listening inspired picture as I totally wanted to showcase this amazing set.

It is a gacha with 18 items including the rare. On top there was the special exclusive for the Epiphany, which is the actual record store building, which I did not use for this post as I always have trouble with lightnings in closed rooms :p (Not to mention, that I found out AFTER the pictures were done, that I can seperate the front and roof and just remove them for better light settings… DOH)

So I needed an outfit that was appropriate for a record store… something cool and urban probably would match the best.

The perfect base for that kind of look seemed the “Gymnastic Suit” from PurpleMoon. Again Poulet Koenkamp – designer of PurpleMoon – amazes me with her texturing. all those different patterns and fabrics on one outfit and the amazing cut outs paired with the upper body harness are simply stunning!

The cool jacket I found at Sabotage and since I anyways have a weakness for oversized clothing , I totally had to have it :p

Since I saw a lot of this new trend of pimping urban sporty wear in RL lately I added the “Nemesia” ankle boots from Glamistry. They added the elegant touch to the whole style that kinda pimped it the way I wanted it to πŸ˜‰

When I was looking through my hair, it was kinda fate I guess, that I found the “Rhythm” hair from Doe. I know I got it from an event as I thought it would fit super cool to something I was planning on a while ago and certainly.. I forgot about it until today*giggles*

With the super cool earphones attached to it, it was the perfect hairstyle for my lazy record store day!

Today kinda was a challenge for me as I am not very familiar with the more sporty looking styles, but the more I tried stiff the more I really started to like it. So I probably will explore that kind of look more in the future πŸ˜‰ Maybe some when I am allowed to play with the cool kids then*snickers*

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!

Explode!

eveformanails-01

There’s something I should get off my chest
I’m losing my mind and my life’s a mess.
Well everyone says do this and do that
Maybe they’re right
I feel like I’m gonna…….
EXPLODE.. I’M GONNA EXPLODE
It is so big yet I feel so small
It’s even in your shopping mall
Is my life wasting away
Don’t throw it away that’s what they say
I don’t wanna go out and fail
Yet I fail at home every day
I wonder someday if I’ll look back
With regrets on how I lived
Each way I turn I turn my back
Each time I turn I always look back
I’m trying to please everyone I don’t know how
I feel like I’m gonna…….
EXPLODE.. I’M GONNA EXPLODE

eveformanails-02
What should I do I really don’t know
Should I stay home or should I go
Well I’m struggling with my sanity
Is my life crumbling in front of me.
Oh.
Do you know how it feels?
To feel like you’re gonna explode
Do you ever feel
Like you’re gonna explode.
EXPLODE.

Indian Spirit or Ethnic Hippy?

PurpleMoon 1

Sometimes playing with colors can be so much fun. If it is with designs and creations from designers you adore and respect highly it is even more fun πŸ˜‰

Today my main focus shall be on the amazing furniture and decor from 22769 and the awesome designs of Poulet Koenkamp from PurpleMoon.

PurpleMoon 6

The new “Wanda” outfit immediately caught my attention after I unpacked it. It is the exact perfect outfit for the hot days at the moment. With the short asymmetric skirt and the amazing ornamented top with these delicate cut outs that awesome outfit pushed me towards a more alternative, ethnic, hippy looking style. That as well brought me on the first idea… to add the “Nazca” hair feathers from Indyra πŸ˜‰

PurpleMoon 2

When I was looking more through all the goodies I got lately, I stumbled over an amazing tattoo from White Widow. I always adored Julie Hastings for her skills to make such delicate and filigree tattoos, which appear so sharp on all of the bodies, that you can see every tiny, little line and dot. The “Shallows” tattoo was originally designed for the Epiphany event but I am sure you can find this amazing gacha now at the White Widow main store πŸ˜‰ The awesome glasses are made by Glamistry. They come with a huge HUD to customize many different parts of the glasses – plastic and metals.

PurpleMoon 8

The mega amazing jewelry as well was made by PurpleMoon. The “Imani” set is available at the actual round of Chapter 4. It comes with different color palette HUDs you can choose from. A well you can choose from different versions of the necklace and different combinations or even the full set. The set as well contains awesome earrings which I left out for this post because of the amazing “Loni” hair from Truth, that anyways covers the ears so you would not even see them. To not cover up the wonderful tattoo I needed some very special shoes. I wanted boots, but boots would have covered up too much. So I went with the “Botttlebrush” heels from Empire. With the thin laces they made the perfect compromise of boots and sandals I could find πŸ˜‰

PurpleMoon 7

For the scenery, I chose various items from 22769. I always adored Manuel and Paco, their genius ideas for all kind of furniture and as well their skills to create those detailed and so realistic looking designs. The super cute sofas are called “Beatle Chair” as the backside of them is made like those very popular cars (I will have another post showing them properly soon). The awesome wall flag, the neat, colored cupboard as well as the flowers and the lamp come from a new gacha machine, which is located at the actual round of the Gacha Garden and the very detailed shisha was part of a great beach set for Indie Teepee. Creating scenes with items from 22769 always is so much fun that I tend to overload the background as so many things would fit so perfect πŸ˜‰

PurpleMoon makes me wear pink!

PurpleMoon 8 starterWhen I got the amazing Cameron Outfit and saw the huge color HUD, I went through all colors… and I really could not resist to wear the pink. So I took my medicals and put it back on :p

PurpleMoon 3

Β The “Cameron Dress” is an amazing asymmetric dress with a sexy, high slit on the left leg. The sleeves are not the usual short ones and no long ones either. They just go down a little over the elbow πŸ˜‰

The dress for each color is parted in 2 halfs, what makes the whole ensemble very interesting and as well different. With the sharp folds and wrinkles it becomes an awesome realistic look.

PurpleMoon 6

As well part of the outfit is the incredible hat. Hats to me are something very special. I am a hat/headpiece addicted anyways and hats always add some kind of class and chic to every look. There is a reason why many classy celebrities and popular people wearing hats or some kind of head wear for the more classy events.

AS well all the rich and beautiful people who spent their free time on horseracing places like Ascot… you can see a lot of huge and extraordinary hats there πŸ˜‰

The hat of the “Cameron Dress” really reminded me on some of those πŸ˜‰

With the delicate lace and the wonderful ribbon that hat really makes a statement and pulls the whole look on the super elegant side.

PurpleMoon 2 shoes

To just not break that super elegant style I chose to wear the Titania Sandals as well from PurpleMoon. The shape just fit perfectly to the look and the color was matching dreamy to the pink shades of the dress.

PurpleMoon 5

For the scenery I used a few of the items that are available on the actual round of the On9 event. The “Pollen Table Lamp” I just used as a floor lamp together with the “Pollen Hanging Lamp” on the other side. Both are made by Di’Cor and available in 6 different colors at the event. The lights can be turned on and offΒ  by touch. The table lamp only has a LI of 2 and the hanging version only 6LI. With that low LI they are a perfect decoration even for a small room only πŸ˜‰

The cute and amazing steps were made by Serenity Style. There are 2 different versions available, one clean and one rusty. With all the love to the details those steps are a perfect decoration item for your home and as well a wonderful part of a scenery for photography.

LOTD 08/17/2015 – Goodies @ On9 :)

On9 1a

Today I would like to showcase some of the amazing designs available at the On9 event.

On9 is a monthly event, that offers many different designers, creations, and items. You will find clothing, accessories, furniture, poses, shoes, makeup and nearly everything you can thin about all in one place done by different genius and skilled creators. You can imagine how happy I was when I was asked if we would like to be part with Wicca’s Wardrobe as well… among all those incredible designers and creators πŸ˜‰

But today I won’t use any of our own stuff and put some spotlight on some of those amazing items you can find at the current On9 event.

On9 2a

Let’s start with the incredible amazing head-piece. Who else that Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska, could do such an amazing art piece?

The huge head-piece looks like made out of petals and some sweet fishes are swimming around. The head-piece comes with a great color HUD that lets you customize the petals, the accents and the fishes to many different colors.

To fit under this wonderful head-piece I needed some not too high but still modern and fresh looking hairstyle. Guess what… I as well found that one at On9 *snickers*. No.Match offers the perfect hair for my actual look. The “No.Call” style with the two smart braided tails left and right was the right addition to balance the crazy and the cute touch of the whole look.

The glasses are as well available at On9. Made by [Since 1975] those glasses are an extra ordinary addition to your accessories box! You can decide between 4 different colors. I went with the golden version for today’s post.

On9 3a

The super sweet top was made by the amazing Poulet Koenkamp, owner and designer of PurpleMoon.

Poulet is one of the most talented people, I was allowed to meet and call a friend in SL. She always amazed me with her stunning hand printed textures and her awesome ideas and designs. For this month of On9 she made this delicate top called “Anika” in 7 different colors. The top is a wide and loose fit and together with the cool sleeves, this top really is a must have for every ladies wardrobe especially for the late summer season:) .

Β The pants and the shoes coming from a very talented and skilled woman too. Thetra Blackheart, ower and designer of E-Clipse. The “Fringe Pants” I got longer ago but the amazing “Follia” heels are as well available at On9. In 6 different colors or as a fatpack, those amazing heels fit the Slink, the Maitreya and the TMP feet. The strapped heels have wonderful fringes at the front and some amazing metal decorations on the straps. With the HUD you can change the metals to 3 different types.

Last but not least I would like to zoom in a little bit closer and drag the focus on this incredible necklace from Kunglers. You can pick from 5 different colors. The great combination of filigree metals, stones and gems makes a wonderful every day necklace for many different styles.

For all the other amazing ne releases at On9 please jump over there and take a look by yourself. And don’t forget… every designer offers one piece for 20% off the regular price, like always at On9!

PurpleMoon goes Fantasy for the Instruments Anniversary

PurpleMoon 2A Midsummer Night’s Dream… that’s the name of one of the latest releases from PurpleMoon.

Poulet again designed a super amazing and dreamy outfit for the anniversary round of The Instruments.

When I unpacked it and put it on, I immediately was in love with the beautiful fairy looking outfit.

The outfit contains the sweet dress and the amazing Wings wich are color change able via a HUD to 5 different colors for the fatpack.

I decided to wear the ‘aqua’ version of the dress and as well color the wings in the same color.

PurpleMoon 1The dress is made with a corset and a very cute wrap around skirt. The corset is decorated with amazing ornaments, that underline the dreamy flair of the whole creation. To match the “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” PurpleMoon offers the “Titania Sandals” for the Slink high mesh feet.

The sandals as well have a HUD wich lets you decide between 3 different styles of the shoe – ankle, mid calf and calf high – and as well you can choose between 4 different heel/sole styles.

For the jewelry I put on one of the newer releases of Finesmith.

PurpleMoon 5The “Galactic” set is a very fantasy and space looking set. The huge aqua colored gems are captured by filigree little silver decorations… simply amazing. The whole set contains earrings, necklace, ring, tiara and a headdress (which I did not use for this post).

The look really took me away from reality and let me dream about aΒ  wonderful summer night in a fantasy kingdom πŸ˜‰

The Dark Warrior with PurpleMoon & EMO-tions

PurpleMoon & EMO-tions 01

Dark Illusion Warrior

From nowhere came a warrior
With a mission to complete
He was in possession of extreme power
That he’d use on everyone he’d meet

He came when you least expected him
He brought terror to the world
You could expect no mercy
As he swung his sword

He was cursed by the Gods
He had to fight ’til he died
But finally he beat the odds
And then he was free, free to rise

Nobody knew where he came from
No one knew his destiny
The story was told through the centuries
A piece of tragic history

He came when you least expected him
He brought terror to the world
You could expect no mercy
As he swung his sword

WW - Poses - The Spells Set

I wanted to make a special Halloween picture for Poulet and her amazing gown so I went ahead and made some poses I could use for my post πŸ˜‰ . The poses turned out to be a new set for my store called ” The Spells”

I wanted to show all parts of this outfit as the gown. The amazing feathers in the back, the awesome feathers that are lying around at the bottom and the incredible wings as well decorated with the feathers.
