“Did you ever realize, that the snow makes the world quiet?”

Once one of my kids in school – one with a mental disability that is usually very quiet – asked me “Did you ever realize that the snow makes the world quiet?” and looked at me curious, with his big green eyes. It was so out of the blue, that I really was speechless for a moment and then I realized he is right. Those little things we all do know, but never talk about them anymore – we just take them as read. When they brought up again, they show even more the beauty and miracles that nature gives to us, especially through the eyes of a child 🙂

I am still in a snow mood and when I found the super cute animated “Snowglobe” from [Since 1975] I was totally sold to do another winter post 🙂

The globe is part of a gacha, that has different season globes. some of them are animated and have poses even!The animated one I used has sweet snowflakes falling down while you can sit on the trunk. The trunk has some nice couple cuddle poses in it, I sadly found no one I could pose with (Red was busy as always), so I just made me some poses to pose in that amazing background 😉

I did not add much except some of the Canadian RedMarple” trees from Little Branch to enhance the globe a little bit. The trees have a 4 seasons feature and on touch you can change the season really easy to fit your scenery.

 

All I had to do is style one more winter look, which was not hard with the new “Nicole” outfit from *LX* at 4Mesh and the amazing “Ophelia” boots from UTOPIA@Design.

“Nicole” contains a top and a skirt. With 12 colors you have a wide range to play with the colors you like and a HUD as well provides the possibility for the seams of the sweater and the belt to color them different. The outfit is made for Maitreya, Belleza (Isis & Freya) and for both of the Slink Physique bodies (Original & Hourglass).

The boots again come with the same amazing HUDs as all the UTOPIA@Design shoes do. You can customize all parts of the shoes as well as you can use the already made presets, that the designer already made for you.

Since it is still winter I added some sleeves to the outfit. They are from Cashmere and I got them during their closing sale ages ago. Needles to say that there are not yet any mesh body sizes included, but with the Maitreya alpha HUD you can cheat your way round that as well sometimes 😉

The cool umbrella with an unbuilt pose to hold it in your hand was part of the “Alter-Umrella” gacha set from [Since 1975]. There are all kind of umbrellas in that set and each of them would have been amazing for my todays post.

Sunny Day with *agapee* & Eclipse

agapee 1

The sun comes out more and more and I just had to do another Spring post today 😉

I was experimenting some more with my new mesh head I got, but to be honest I did not yet found anything new. So I will focus on the amazing dress, which I got from *agapee* and  the cool boots made by Eclipse.

The amazing “Jean Outfit” is a real spring ensemble. With the sweet long-sleeved top, decorated by that little scarf, and the wonderful belted skirt with the delicate lace part in the front, it is perfect for the first warm sun beams.

The outfit comes with a HUD to change the colors of the short and the scarf to 6 different ones, so that you can customize the whole outfit perfectly to your very own likings.

The super cute hairstyle comes from Truth and was made for the actual round of The Fantasy Collective.

For the pictures, I wanted something sweet and modern, to complement the outfit itself. When I was lately doing some sim hopping, I discovered a residential sim called “Mataiva”. The name for the place is “The Iconic Spell”.

“The Ionic Spell is what remains of a little village devastated by a large solar storm.. For 10 years the people have lived without electricity and looked for ways to restore the light.The community is close and we must stick together to find the answer”

That is the description which I found in the sim description field. On the first view you won’t see the destructions, as most of the sim look like, as if the residents have rebuilt it, but some corners still show the basic idea. It is a fantastic place to walk around and enjoy the love to the detail, the people put in here to create this wonderful little world.

I am sure I will return to this awesome place to discover some more interesting corners for future pics and posts 😉

Snow Fun!

Sazzy&Wicca Snowy 1

Snow Song

She sat there, eyes open wide
And she watched the snow cover the ground outside
Mittens on her hands
A smile ear to ear
She said, “In California
It hasn’t snowed in years.”

So come outside
And we can watch the sky
Turn up your palms
And open your hands up wide
Come outside
And open up your eyes

Sitting next to me
She ties her scarf on tight
Winter can leave you crying
But it brightens up her eyes
And show kisses her cheek
Where I want to be
And rests on her shoulders
Like in her New York dreams

So come outside
And we can watch the sky
Turn up your palms
And open your hands up wide
Come outside
And open up your eyes

Walk with me…
Take my hand I’ll lead you down these city streets
Won’t you walk with me?
Won’t you walk with me?

When she says goodbye
She turns around and smiles
The next time it snows
I’ll be on her mind

Maniera Casting: YAY! I made it :)

Last Week I had the pleasure to b allowed to come to the live casting of Maniera. Maniera was a dream for me for a long time and I was very happy, that I made it through the first round and was invited to the live castings.

Maniera always stood for some extraordinary for me. The magazine they do, always was made in high quality and the models who are working there are all wonderful girls and guys with a great sense of fashion and style.

The live casting had a very cool theme and it was told in a little story so that I would like to just steal the words off the NC I got from Katherine Comet (Yes, I asked her and I may use them she said. Thanks for that Kat 😉 )

“Theme:

Your talent agent has gotten you an audition to be a supporting role in a Jungle Safari Thriller movie as the sidekick assistant to the leading actor who is a Detective trying to solve the case of a missing person.  You’ve been told you would be carrying all of the detective’s paraphernalia but you have to look good doing it.  You really want to knock their socks off with your knowledge and incredible ability to look like you’ve “been there, done that.”  Your audition will take place on location, IN THE JUNGLE, so you have to be prepared.

You know you have to be practical; the bugs and animals are out in full force but have been told you may not use any prim material which covers your face!  You MUST get this job as your career depends on it.

How would you dress and be prepared for the perils of jungle life, but still look the part of the supporting role in this major movie production?  
      
You’ve been given the storyline and requirements; now roll with it, have fun and good luck!”

The challenge it self was great fun for me. I tried to slip into that role and thought about it very seriously.. about not having high heels walking through a jungle and carry stuff around, about all the bugs and little animals that would eat me up if my clothing would be too short and show too much skin… all that stuff. And while I was searching through my inventory all that old movies like Indiana Jones, Crocodile Dundee, The Mummy and many more came into my mind and slowly a look was born. Thanks to all of the judges that made one of my dreams come true and took me to Maniera as a proud Maniera Model 🙂

Mesh News from Prism!

We all know the awesomeness and problems of the new mesh clothing in SL 🙂 Many designers already released mesh clothing and it really is a wonderful possibility to let the avatar look with certain clothes come more real. No more silly knee angles, no more skirts that fall trough chairs if you sit on. The idea of mesh really is a great revolution, even if there has to be done much more work on still.Everyone that uses one of the mesh featured SL viewers, can wear mesh.

Prism now released their first mesh dress as well. A wonderful short dress that can be used in all kind of stylings you can think of. I decided to go for a kinda Rockabilly styling, because I really liked that with that dress ;). Journey included 3 different sizes of the dress and 2 different alpha layers to make it fit better. For mesh you cannot anymore edit the prims, when you wear them, so that different sizes really make sense and with 3 options you pretty much have a good chance to make it fit your shape. For this post I used the “London Leather” version of “Adele” and I am sure if you make your way to the Prism Mainstore you will find many more amazing colors and versions of the “Adele” dress 🙂 Dare to wear mesh :p
