Wicca’s Wardrobe @ The Dark Style Fair 2017

This round of The Dark Style Fair is appropriately themed “Day of the Dead.”
For this special occasion we have created a 100% original mesh ensemble we call Catrina. It is a coat/dress combination that can be worn independent of one another. Of course we have an amazing HUD that gives you many options for textures as well as metals. Catrina is a versatile outfit that can work together or separately in a number of different genre stylings such as, Victorian or Steampunk. Catrina fits Maitreya’s Lara as well as Slink’s Physique and Hourglass.

Exotic Orchid

Usually I am not too much of a gown person, but the “Talissah”gown from Azul really caught my eyes. With all those huge attachments and the unusual shapes of them, it really did touch me inside.

When it comes to Azul, I always admired Mami’s texturing skills. She used to always have so amazing details on her gowns and designs, that you never saw them all on the first view. Every time when you look at them you will find another amazing detail, like the delicate, asian looking brocade on the “Talissah” gown. The huge ruffles, together with the long metal parts reminded me of exotic orchids. The head piece as well has this huge ruffles and some metal parts and it comes with a wonderful tiara looking jewelry as well. Wit the flexi parts at the gown and as well attached to the bracelets, it got a very dreamy touch for me, too.

The dress was made for Talissah Xenga, one of the MVW candidates this year.

The amazing makeup – which I am using on my new “Simone” bento head from LeLutka – was made by Zibska.

The “Sirra” applier for mesh heads comes for LeLutka, TMP and as well for Omega compatible heads. Even the standard avatar heads can wear the tattoo version of it. The soft and spring looking colors with the darker, outer eye corner, just looked fantastic to the colors of the gown and still give kind of a nude look, that does not overlay the whole styling too much.

For the set I chose something more simple but as well something that made an impressive point to my look. I used the “Aerial Screw Parasol” because of with its top, it matched amazingly the asian touch of the gown. To enhance the dreamy feeling i got from the gown, I added the “Dancing Petals Dystopia” as well from e.V.E Studio.

LOTD 04/22/2016 – Girls just wanna have fun!

glamistry+AR 6

TUNES

I have no clue why, but while I was working on the pictures of todays post, the song ‘Girls just wanna have fun’ was stuck in my head :p

The base of the look was the incredible jewelry from Tracei.

In SL it is really hard to find modern casual jewelry. I have a lot of elegant jewelry or as well filigree little jewelry – most of the in either gold or silver – , but if you look for bigger, modern casual chic jewelry it is quite a challenge. When I discovered Tracei, it felt like I would be in heaven!

glamistry+AR 7

So long I was looking for some bold but still chic and fashionable jewelry and accessories, that can be mixed and word with casual styles.

Today I would like to showcase 3 parts of the fantastic jewelry collection of Tracei.

For the earrings I went with a pair of “Calista”. The “Calista” earrings are available in 6 monochrome shades and for my post I chose the opal blue ones. The “Calista” earrings are the perfect choice to take you through the actual season and onwards to the desired summer 😉 The earrings are so versatile, as you can use them for casual chic stylings as well as for pimp up your beach wear look or even for an evenings party! With the inbuilt resizer you can size them to your likings and needs. Originally the “Calista” earrings were released at the Lost & Found event but they found their way to the Tracei main store and marketplace now as well.

The wonderful ring and glasses are made by Tracei as well. The “Artio” sunglasses as well can be resized via a resizer and inside the lenses you have amazing reflections, what makes them look amazing realistic. The “Evan Apatite” ring makes the perfect finish for the accessorizing. With the oversized but clean look it makes a statement and can be worn by both genders. I loved the mix of the darn onyx ring with the smooth gem at the top a lot and it kinda brings to gether the casual with the chic thought of the look.

glamistry+AR 4

For the outfit I put on one of the latest releases from Asia Rae. The “Polly” top is a real playful looking little shirt with little lines over the shoulders and a long ruffled part on the front that reaches down to the belly button, what adds a very sexy touch in my view 😉

For the pants I decided to go with one of my long time favourites, the “Zipper Skinny” jeans made by Maitreya. I wanted some simple but not boring basics for the clothing, to make the accessories and shoes shine even more.

Talking about shoes…

Today I am wearing the “Echium” heels from Glamistry. Those heels are a definite must have for every girls wardrobe.

Basically you could call them plateau pumps but they are so much more than that! With the amazing add-ons that have a scales look, those heels are simply stunning and so adaptable to so many different styles and looks. The love of the detail of Glamistry again shows with the little studs that hold the add-ons in place and as well with the repeating of the scales fabric on the bottom of the heel. Again the shoes can be purchased in many colors which you can mix and match for the basic shoe, add ons, metals, heel and the sole.

glamistry+AR 1

The cool furniture I used for my set, was a mix and match of several items I got at various events. The cute pastel fan I got from Art Dummy which sadly is closed now , the cool shelf was made by Lark and the wonderful ‘boat couch’ I found on an event as well from Stockholm & Lima, one of my favourite brands when it comes to furniture with high details. Sometimes less is more and for fashion posts I really do like a pure and simple surrounding 😉

Steampunk with Dead Dollz & EMO-tions

Steampunk 01

Steampunk is one of my favourite fashion categories. I love the mechanical ideas, the colors and as well the Victorian touch of most of the styles and designs. Not everything might be steampunk looking first hand but with the right accessories some might be able to transform into it 😉

Today I took the fantastic “Octavia” ensemble, wich Dead Dollz released for the Fantasy Collective. The amazing outfit contains skirt, corset and the shoulderpart. The wonderful skirt has amazing ruffles in the back and the tight underbust corset has amazing fabrics and textures. The “Octavia” dress is available in 3 different colors and I chose the brown one for todays post.

To cover the chest I took one of my favourite bras, the “Bettie Bad Girl Bra” from Faster Pussycat.with the golden outlines it went so perfectly with the “Octavia” dress.

For the hair i took one of the newer releases from EMO-tions, called “Tanja”- Tanja is a sweet updo with some smart wisps and a longer front, perfect for the steam punk look 😉

To even more point out on the steam punk character of the look I decided to choose my accessories from Pixel Box. The incredible”Steampunk Multi Monocle” together with the “Steampunk Clock” set wich contains a necklace, earrings and the ring – the earrings I did not use for this post – was the perfect addition.

The”Bird Skull” hair accessory, made by LoQ is one of my favourite hair pieces 😉 and so I could not resist to add it today again as it looked so sweet together with the book, it gave a little science touch, which I really loved. Such things kinda happen when you just fool around with your headpiece folder to find something that matches your look :p .

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss Netherlands 2012 by Bliss Couture

The wonderful formal gown for Miss Netherlands 2012 was made by Bliss Couture. Amutey DeCuir again showed her amazing skills for formal and elegant  gowns and designs. The dress she made for Miss Draakje Daily, our Miss Netherlands 2012, and she shined at the Miss Virtual World 2012 contest. The bodice is made of very delicate lace fabrics, the ornaments are so filigree and detailed and the light and sheer ruffles make a great frame for the beautiful bodice. The bodice has a pain open back so a lot of skin is shown from the back view what just underlines the sexy touch of the whole gown dreamy. The gloves matching the gown are as well part of the outfit. The skirt gives the whole gown a sexy touch, too. The back is long to the ground and the front is short and makes an amazing open front to show off you long and well-shaped legs 😉

The aerial fabric of the skirt, totally matches the delicate lace of the bodice and it again underlines why Bliss Couture always was one of the top addresses for elegant and sophisticated designs.
The wonderful “Drakje” gown you can get now at the Bliss Couture Mainstore.

The jewelry Miss Draakje Daily took from Chop Zuey. The wonderful “Octopussy” bracelet and earrings in white. The set you can get in single part at the Chop Zuey Mainstore.

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Germany 2012 by The White Armory & Finesmith

The german national gown for sure was something special for me, as I am german myself. All of the gown are stunning and wonderful but for some strange reason I have a special relation ship to this one. It reminds me a lot on the days of my childhood, where I was read so many fairy tales and novels of the Brothers Grimm. Rapunzel, Dornroeschen, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Cap, Snow White… All of the princesses in those storys must have worn such gowns… I am sure! 😉 I really like the imagination of a german national gown with the relation ship to the Brothers Grimm and I never saw this idea before for such a purpose. The “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown, The White Armory/TWA made for Falbala Fairey, our Miss Germany 2012, is a masterpiece of art. I know TWA for some time and I always adored their medieval and roleplay gowns and clothing, so I am very happy that Falbala chose TWA, she could not have made a better choice for her imagination. The dress itself is made of black and many shades of blue. The huge skirt is made after the typical medieval skirt style with the wide hips and all the awesome folds and ruffles. The bodice as well has a black basic but the blue corset is made with excellent and filigree ornamented textures in all shades of blue. The prim parts on wrists and neck as well add a very special touch and show the love for the detail of designer Bee Dumpling. The “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown as well contains a crown that can be worn with and without lace in the style of the wrist and neck prims. The “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown you can find at the The White Armory Mainstore.

The jewelry set for sure comes from Finesmith and yula did an incredible job to make the total perfect set for this beautiful gown. The “Dornroeschen” set is really the set for the fairytale princess! It has so many great pieces and you really can see that they were made for the “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown. The 2 parts for the head, the delicate hairbun diamonds and the wonderful head-piece with that long parts that end in framed, awesome gemstones. A collar, a pair of earrings and the amazing corset decor of little flowers with a blue center complete the stunning “Dornroeschen” set, that you now can get at the Finesmith Mainstore.

Cute News by Ezura!!!

Ezura‘s latest release really is one of the most cute things I got lately. The sweet “Lolita Latex” dress really touched my ‘dolly heart’ 😉 I had to style it the cute way at least once 🙂 The short latex, flexi skirt perfectly goes with the “Lolita Latex” boots (sold seperately) in color and style. The corsage makes a strict and tight contrast to the puffy ruffles and the little brooch of the top.

As we know from Ezura, she always acts like a perfectionist if it comes to designs and textures. Latex is one of the most difficult texture to do in SL I was told by many designers, because of the lightnings and shadows to produce this typical shine. As we can see on this dress Ezura did an amazing job and made it as realistic as possible.

The dress is available in many different colors and for the “Twisted  Krissmuss Event”   Ezura made a special color, wich I liked a lot as well.

All prims do have resizer in it so that you can fit it perfectly to your avatar. For the skirt you have the flexi prim option that I have on my pics and as well a sculpted non flexi one. To see more of Ezura‘s latest releases or to see all the colors (black, red, blue, yellow, pink, purple) of the “Lolita Latex” dress you better make your way to the Ezura Mainstore and take a look by yourself 😉

As well Ezura celebrates her 3rd Anniversary with a special event and sale.

For her inworld group she made a special gift what is as well amazing for the holiday season.
