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.

Essence of Women in plum… ok that sounds weird :p

LeeZu+Vista+ss close2

Sometimes you have the feeling you wanna do something but you are not yet sure what and then you start to look through your inventory. I stumbled over one of the latest releases of LeeZu, that I not yet had blogged and I put it on. Usually I tend to choose black for the first try, because I love black so much. But in that moments when you are not yet sure what the result will be you are a bit more daring :p. So I tried the plum version… I have no clue why, as the outfit is really different and a totally other color, but all of a sudden I had Kylie Minouge in my head with the video to the song “can’t get you out of my head. Even if the original outfit had a deep neckline and some floating fabric at the legs… it must have been the hoodie what reminded me of it πŸ˜‰

If you choose such a special color it is hard to find shoes in the same color range, since plum can have different shades as well. I went directly to my LeeZu shoes folder and with the “Times Square Overknee Boots” I found the right color for my boots to match the “Raphael Hoody”. It is no secret that I am LeeZu addicted, so I thought I can finish the styling with LeeZu items as well. The “Marmour Tights” in pink and the new mesh version of the “NifNif” gloves in mauve completed my plum-purple-lilac outfit.

Usually I wanted to attend the Home & Garden Expo 2013 as a blogger, but some unexpected RL issues came up and prevented me from blogging for over a week. But even if the event is nearly over, I do not wanna let the few things I got to get dusty in my inventory. The wonderful scenery of a room I made with the amazing furniture from Second Spaces. The “Messy Bookshelf”, that comes in a filled and empty version, the cute “Bennie small Chests”, the amazing “Honeycombs”, that you can get in different color shades and the “Bullseye Stool” made an amazing set for the styling, as I could match all the furniture design to my outfit color πŸ™‚

As we spoke of so many news, I would have another great new release to announce πŸ˜‰

I use Vista Animati0ns for my AOs in ages. I tried several others but in the end I always came back using my Vista ones. Their animations are simply the best ones I ever saw, not to mention that I nearly bought all of their AOs in the past*hides*. Natural and everyday usable for every kind of styling and attitude, because of the wide range of different AOs and animations. Now you can imagine how happy I was when Persia asked me ifΒ  would like to join the Vista Animations blogger team. I was jumping up and down not even believing what I just heard. To the same time she told me that soon thre will be a brand new AO. Now go figure… I kinda counted the days like a little child before Christmas. Not too long ago it happened… the new “Essence” AO for women was released!

The press release says:

“This AO is a tribute to women who are self-assured, passionate and playful; women who are aware of their femininity and the power that it holds.

With a series of relaxed and stylish stands, confident walks and cool new sit poses, this is the AO that the grid has been waiting for!

The Essence of Woman AO also features NEW subtle breathing animations and can be used with mesh clothing and Lola’s Tango breasts, so you will look perfect from head to toe.

This is an AO that you can wear in any situation: from nightclub to catwalk, from the beach to the bar and you will look the very essence of woman wearing it.

Our new Mocap technology now means that the Vista Animations team can provide you with the most realistic movements possible and we hope you enjoy this brand new release.”

And that does not promise too much!!! The new “Essence” AO has several new features like lola and mesh friendly animations, a soft and subtitle new breathing effect, 24 mocap stands, 9 brand new dances and 6 new couple animations were added. What I found very interesting and useful was the option for handbag and accessories. The handling still is easy and user friendly like always.
