Darkness is our Cloak

“Darkness is your cloak. Fear is your ally. Wickedness is your manna.”

[- Stephen Hunt, The Court of the Air-]

Finally I can start my couple post series for the Engine Room! Usually I am only doing single pictures, the more I enjoy if I can talk my partner Redclaw into redressing and let me do some pictures with him. He rarely redresses or wants to appear on my pictures, but thanks to Akira… he has to*grins*

Today we are showcasing some of the designs of the Engine Room, an event I personally love to go to, as it does highlight some niece corners of Second Life roleplay and designs. I always was more on the fancy side of fashion and so this event is perfect for me.

I would start our couple series with designs from Hotdog, kosmii, bonbon, SEKA, Requisition & Varonis. As you can see we are wearing a partner look jacket, which was made by Hotdog. The waistcoat looking design has dangerous, long spikes at the shoulders, which give them an amazing rough touch. We both decided to defend us with the super detailed pistol from Requisition, while our taste for the eye patch was different. Red goes with an am amazing piece from Seka, while I decided to use the one from kosmii.

I hope you will enjoy our little couple series for the Engine Room as much as we did with doing the pictures for the coming mini series 😉

Wicca’s Originals @ The Engine Room 2020 // 20th April – 20th May

Times are stressful, but don’t lose your head! But just in case you do, consider this Elmstone Head by Wicca’s Originals as a replacement. The foundation of the Elmstone Head is a diving helmet, which is bolted to the torso instead of a diving suit. Within, it uses an air-tight seal to maintain your brain in a protective casing. Tubes are connected to air passageways to regulate your breath. The left half of the head if a cosmetic shell to give a more human appearance, whereas the right half of the head is all functional. A phonograph part emit your voice and can pick up sounds, a light sensor over the right eye is able to bring in images. An adjustment knob allows increasing or decreasing the light sensitivity for bright or dark environments. Further up, on the brow, switches and and a dial is present to control rest mode or to turn on low-power mode. In the event of a power-down, the wearer can be jump-started using the bolt on the left of the head plate. May take some getting used to. Wicca’s Originals is not responsible for any lapses in humanity or mental stability caused by prolonged use of the Elmstone head. The metal pieces come in eight different color shades and are finely polished for a nice shine, combining a kind of strange beauty with utility.

The Elmstone Head is rigged for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Legacy and Signature Gianni.

The Overton Arms by Wicca’s Originals are not just any set of steampunk vambraces. Ferroniobium cast plating provides superior protection against even the sharpest blades, but layered on top of the rubber allows the armored material to absorb even ballistic impacts. The shaping also protects the wrist join from intense impact, which is important because these Overton Arms have another secret built up their sleeve. They are powered arms, using kinetic energy stored up through routine movement to later be discharged in mechanically augmented jabs, hooks or uppercuts. A nixie tube display and dial both provide the wearer with a readout on how much potential energy is stored in capacitor near the elbow. Stylish, defensive, and powerful, be sure to get yours today!

The  Overton Arms are made for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass and Signature Gianni and come in 6 colors with a HUD to customize all the details and parts.

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Thank you Yula :)

Lately Xenobia Foxclaw had a great idea… she asked all the Finesmith models to think about their favourite Finesmith Designs set, snap it, write a few words about and posted them on the Finesmith Designs Blog. It was really hard to decide but in the end this was my contribution to it 😉

“As I was asked to pic my favourite Finesmith jewelry pieces, I did not think not too long and said “Yes sure, gimme a few minutes”…
…but then I was going over and over my Finesmith pieces and found out … it is harder then I thought to find my “favourite”, because if I woudl add all the ones I call my favourites one picture would not be enough 😉
So I was thinking, to wich piece I have the most personal relationship…
It was a huge honor for me to be chosen as one of the Finesmith Muse 2011. All of the finalists got a signature Inspiration set that carries our name. Yula put in so much time, effort and love in each piece she created. She tried to make for each of us a very personal set that mirrors our style and personality. For that she took time for each of us for talking to know us better and find out more about each finalist.
To honor all that she did and because she catched myself so much in the “Wicca” inspiration set I chose to wear it as my personal favourite.
Thank you Yula and the whole Finesmith Family, for a place in Second Life that I really can call home and family :)”

I got my first dress named after me – Sevenstar Amat made a dream come true!!!

I am so proud and happy to show you one of the newest designs of Sevenstar Amat, designer of Stitch by Stitch. She made a dream come true for me as she made this dress for her interview in Angie Mornington’s Fabulous Fashion TV (http://treet.tv/shows/fabfash/episodes/stitch-stitch).  Now lets take a look on the “Wicca Black Butterfly” outfit:

This cute black t-shirt dress, has so many nice details and accessories I simply felt in love with. The style I would say is located in the 80’s of the 20th century. The basic color is black, cause Sevenstar had known that black is my favourite color. She did not only but a dark black color on the layers… the shades are very nice and also they make the fabric of the texture visible, that show off the skills and love to the detail Sevenstar Amat puts into her creations. She broke the black color with amazing colored butterflies on the front of the top. This beautiful butterflies are repeated on the earrings, the belt and also on the sweet handbag.

The earrings have a long silver chain that holds a big teal butterfly with red wings. The butterflies that decorate the front of the top layer on different colors like yellow, pink, blue, red and teal and they give a part of the 80’s feeling 😉

The belt itself is made of a dark grey basic and the front is decorated with little metal parts that carry 2 purple flowers and a nice little chain and also the same butterfly the we had before for the earrings.

Another nice accessory is the awesome hand bag. A little, round bag that can carry the most important things a girl needs to have with… 😉 It is also made of a black basic with all the sweet colorful butterflies on it.

Over all I feel very happy and honored that Sevenstar made this dress carrying my name and it really shows off a little bit of me 😉

You should defiantly make your way to the Stitch by Stitch Mainstore to se all the other wonderful creations of Sevenstar Amat. Also the shop itself is worth a visit 😉 It is a sweet little place that is very colorful and comfortable, simply a nice place to shop and relax 😉
