Wicca’s Wardrobe @ The Guardians – October 2017

This round of The Guardians we have our first ever mesh lingerie! And of course it is 100% original! Evelyn is made up of 5 rares and 25 commons… the RARE items are: the bra, panty, garter belt, corset, and stockings, that comes with a texture changing HUD for all the variety you could want. The commons are single colored bras, panties, garter belts, corsets and stockings that come with a small HUD to change the texture of the metals.

And only for the event we have the Gift of the Guardians, our Evelyn Heels with color changing HUD.

A perfect compliment to the entire set.

“Happy Valentines!” – Every Rose has a Thorn

Sometimes, strange moods can be very productive…

And exactly that I had today when I started to work on the styling for this post. It was a mixture of depression, sadness, the will to do something and the red all over because of Valentine :p .

I started with the “Oru” dress from [sys]. With it’s very cool and unusual shape, it made a great base for my look today, especially because it comes in such a bright and strong red 😉 .

When I tried on the “Luzy” hair from EMO-tions with the “Oru” dress, it was clear this will become kinda crazy :p

Valentine’s Day is something we do not celebrate in Germany as much as the US or other countries do. When I googled it, it said the first Valentines Party was round about 1950 in Germany, even if the traditional custom of that special day goes way back in history. So the biggest fortune of Valentine’s Day in Germany probably goes to the florists 😉

Anyways, I personally never was too much into Valentines’s Day as I do not believe, that only one day per year can tell how much i do love a person. To me it is more the steady and little things, than a bunch of flowers on one day.

But with all the Valentine advertisements and what not, you have a hard way around that and all the red at least inspired me for this post and the pictures.

The cool set I built with the “Tree of Nightmares” and “Koi Glitter Puffs” from E.V.E Studio. The red version of the tree really kicked my mind to go even more crazy with the whole look and so I decided to add some heavy makeup. Usually I am for either heavy eye makeup OR a ‘loud’ lipstick but today… It was calling for both 😉 .

The more I was playing with my style and the set, the more the thought of the phrase “every rose has a thorn” settled down inside myself and it became a working title for this post somehow. Like every wonderful moment you have, always can be destroyed by one little ugly ‘thorn’ that hides on that beautiful rose. If you do not think about it, it all of a sudden hurts you. That reminded me of some recent things that happened and so the phrase became more and more something I kept saying to myself, to remind me about the beauty of the rose and not think too much about the thorns.

The leggings from Cureless [+] even more dragged into the darker side and together with the “Nemesia” ankle boots from Glamistry, the whole look got some kind of a rocker chick touch to me.

Every year I discover my own little Valentine thoughts and it always is a lot of fun to see how they turn out if I try to make pictures or posts during that time of the year. But in the end I always enjoy them and I always discover new visions and thoughts of myself about Valentine’s Day looks and red challenges 😉

Happy Valentines!

Temptation in Black & Red

Today I have some amazing news from *ROMP* for you!

It was about time for a black & red styling I guess and with the new items from ROMP it was just perfect timing 😉

To me this round of ROMP is a very exciting one as we are allowed to participate for the first time with our store as well. I will probably do a post of our design as well but for now I would like to showcase some of the super awesome items I found there.

What caught my eyes as soon as I saw the vendor picture, was the amazing “Carmen” coat made by [sys]. The knee long open coat is decorated with an amazing fur looking fabric. You have 2 different versions available in each pack for the fur part. It comes fitted for all popular mesh bodies.

The amazing, delicate lingerie I am wearing underneath, comes from chocolate atelier (::c.A::). Chocolate Atelier usually provides the lingerie as system body layers, tattoo layers as well as appliers for Slink, Maitreya and Omega. For this post I used the “Nadia” lingerie in black but you can purchase it as well in red or white.

For the stockings I chose one of my favourite brands… AviCandy. They are always very well made without any seams – except the wanted ones in the back – and just look so realistic with their wonderful filigree lace decoration at the upper thighs. AviCandy provide for their nylons usually 2 different versions – one more opaque and one sheer one.

For the shoes I used the “Parrasana” heels from Glamistry. They might not be brand new but still brand hot with their special heel :p.

Let’s take a closer look at the strong makeup I chose for today’s look. Normally I am a fan of either bold eyes OR lips and rarely use both but the look kinda called for a more dramatic looking makeup.

The stunning, dark smokey eyes were made by Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska. I am using the m aitreya applier of the “Selise” HUD. Zibska is definitely a must go for the new “Simone” bento head from LeLutka. Zibska offers a wide range of incredible makeup designs for that head, that just fits amazing. You will not only find a LeLutka applier HUD in the pack, there also is an Omega, Catwa or TMP one as well plus still all the system layer tattoos.

The great, deep and dark lipstick is one of the newest releases from je suis. Yes you heard right – Julia Merosi, owner and designer of je suis, is back! And she already made stunning new things including the “LeLutka Lips 006”, which she released at the actual round of the Chapter 4. The perfectly fit the “Simone” head and you can even play with the gloss and the blending to get the perfect result for your look.

For the set I mainly wanted to play with projectors and lights in different colors (thanks to Leah for teaching me some more about self made projectors!).

As a basic furniture I put down the new “Neo Victorian Sofa”, that you can get at ROMP as well made by 22769. It comes in different colors and as PG or adult version – for today’s post I just went with the black PG version, as I anyways wanted to play with other poses, even if the sofa has great inbuilt animations that you can play with via a touch menu. The curtains, that I used for the golden accents are as well made by 22769.

ROMP has some great goodies this round so it is definitely worth a visit 😉

Contrast – Black & Silver against Red

blacklace-agapee-1

Again Blacklace released an amazing ensemble of panties, bra, stockings, garter belt and this time even boots!

With my addiction for over knee boots I could not pass that one 😉

blacklace-agapee-5

Again I tried to think about something to mix and match lingerie with something else to not again have a typical lingerie post (even if i will have soon one like that again since Blacklace does release so many amazing things *grins*)

When I was looking through my inventory what I could use today, a box was thrown against my head. Sora Tatham – owner and designer for agapee – a long time friend of mine sent me her newest release. The “Kelly Shirt” by agapee was the perfect addition to the “Anita” set from Blacklace.

With the open, loosely wrapped down front it was perfect for showcasing lingerie and the length was just right to let the garters peeking out under it :p

blacklace-agapee-3

I love several kinds of contrasts and so I thought about something black and silver highlighted just with one color, which I wanted to put on the lips, the hair and the nails.

Contrasts can be done in so many ways. colors, opposite things, things that do not belong together at all usually…and so many more.

The way how the comic Sin City is done always inspires me, when it comes to highlights and contrasts in colors.

blacklace-agapee-4

So for the hair I chose the “No.Case” hairstyle from no.match. In a red shade it was just perfect to the light red lip gloss and the red finger nails from Nailed It.

The scenery again was built mainly with designs from E.V.E Studio. The awesome “Ivy Trees M02” paired with parts of the “Broken Chains” set, that as well includes the amazing choker with the long chains in the back of the neck.

All the poses I used for this post come from Del May. I really do enjoy their unusual poses and I rarely found a pose store, that has those kind of poses before.. but a few days ago… I found another! Not yet saying which one, but soon I will have a post about it, I promise 😉

News at Fellini Couture

Today I have the great pleasure to show you some of the latest releases of Fellini Couture.

Joy again surprises us with some new fantastic mesh creations. The new “Tentation Lips” dress is a wonderful combination of a very female looking dress and some…  kinda pop art with the huge lips. The dress itself is made very tight and lays dreamy around a slim, but curved female shape. The corset makes an amazing waist size, sexy and seductive. The huge lip that decorates the front of the skirt, Joy brough back above the corset, with some glass/diamond looking parts on red lips that are arranged to cover the chest. To really make sure that, you do not see anything you should not, you have an extra clothing layer ;). The strong red lips combined with simple white brought me on some crazy and funky accessories… the huge collar and the leash between my lips made the whole look pointing out on some Lady Gaga stylings and so I decided to add some heavy makeup from LovelyMi for the eyes. With that, now more fierce than elegant look, I needed some extravagant hair and my thought fell on one special hair from Bizarre Hair that was released not too long ago. To bring back the red of the lips, belt and gloves below the skirt, my decision for shoes fell on some red and vintage looking ankle boots from BAX.

As I finally finished my look and snapped the pictures the red came out very strong and I suddenly had the imagination of the comic ‘Sin City’ that uses a lot of black and white only featuring a deep and blood-red and so I worked on the pictures to get exactly that vibe for this post. The “Tentation” mesh gown as well is available in a nother version that is made only off black and white without the huge lips what might fit better for any elegant and classy occasions, but I liked the red accents so much, that I had to showcase the red lips version 😉

If you wanna take a look at the other one you can wait till I have it on my blog or you just make your way to the Fellini Couture Mainstore and see for yourself.

Black, White & Red – Square Fantasys with SoliDea FoliEs!

Part of the Spring Collection 2012 of SoliDea FoliEs are the “Optical Dresses & Hats”. There are 3 different versions in color and texture for this amazing new dress. For today I chose the ‘Square’ version of the amazing outfit.

The hat looks like one of the asian ‘Koi’ fishes and it is a very extravagant hat. I always loved how Mila Tatham, owner and genius designer of SoliDea FoliEs took unusual ideas and made them fashionable 🙂 The short dress is perfect for the upcoming spring season and I really like how carefully the red color is brought in with just the few little red balls and at the hat. I have an addiction for black and white and for squares for a long time – yes I am a child of the 80’s :p. So this dress really got my attention even if the 2 other colors are amazing as well.

To catch the red color again I took the new “Play Cubes” earrings from Finesmith. The square shape totally made it to the dress for me 🙂

Too keep the look in a modern way I added one of the latest releases from Urban Lutz for the hair.

To see all of the amazing colors of the “Optical Dress & Hat” and the “Play Cubes” you better take a look by yourself at the SoliDea Folies and Finesmith Mainstores 🙂

Mesh News at E-Clipse!

A few days ago, Thetra Blackheart, owner and designer of E-Clipse, went into my IMs and told me she had a new outfit ready that might be my groove and she asked me if I maybe could do some pics of it for her. I was very curious about her newest designs because I always liked her fresh and modern style and ideas. I went home and unpacked the box she sent me and I got big eyes. She created a wonderful new mesh dress with matching overknee boots in 4 great, different colors and all made with the new mesh technique.

I tried to style in different types to show the wide range you can wear this amazing new “Triste” dress of E-Clipse. With all the colors and the different styling possibilities the “Triste” dress already is worth the trip to the E-Clipse Mainstore and you can see what else Thetra has new there 😉

Ezura at the Festival of Sin

These days we have the wonderful Festival of Sin (LM to the Festival of Sin: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Diablo/138/119/72) going on in Second Life. One of Ezura’s contributions is the “The Sins Wrath”. The Festival of Sin happens the first time  in SL and it is a lovely made place where a lot of SL’s top designers showcase special designs, some of their latest releases and old-time favourites. The place itself is worth a visit.

Ezura came up with a wonderful red gown that is the perfect picture of wrath, one of the 7 deadlies. A wonderful red and seductive gown with a mixture of lace and opaque textures in red. The basic of the gown is made in the new mesh technique, the prims on the sides and at the neck are normal non mesh prims and easy to adjust. The amazing red horns are as well part of the wonderful gown. For the hair I chose a combination of Urban Lutz and Baiastice. Urban Lutz started to create a new hair-line that follows the zodiac signs. For today iI chose the wonderful “Capricorn” style combined with one of my all time favourites from Baiastice.
