Second Life Skins: SilkenMoon – Diva

ad-vendor-diva

Silken Moon made a wonderful new skin not too long. The face of the Eclipse line is called “Diva” and she is in my view one of the best skins Malicia Python owner and designer of Silken Moon, ever made.

What caught my attention were the lips. Malicia made totally new lips for the “Diva”! Together with those wonderful realistic looking eyes and the cute-looking nose it is a wonderful addition to the Eclipse line.

Diva Face

When she asked me if I would like to pose for the vendor of her new skin I had not long to think about it – certainly I would like to!

As I arrived at Mal’s place, where she had rezzed the background she gave me the new skin in band new and very special tone. The new “Ivory” skin tone she created is a very sophisticated looking skin tone. For all who love the already existing skin tones of the Eclipse line – no worries the new “Diva” skin as well will be available in bisque, brulee, lumee, bousee and a special colored version, he ivory tone is just a brand new addition.

The “Diva” skins comes with amazing new lipsticks and even in the demo you have one free lipstick!

On top you will get a SLINK applier HUD for your mesh hands and feet to make

I love to pose for Mal’s vendors as she always gives me amazing challenges. I asked her what she had in mind in general for the “Diva”. She told me a few things and I just started styling. First I put on the “4 Minute” jacket on, since I know that Mal and me have a close liking for several things and I thought she might like it and she did ;). For the jeans, I chose my absolute favourite jeans from R:A:D, a brand what does sadly not exist anymore, but the designer is still around and I am sure, that if you really like them, Redclaw Inshan will sell them privately to you ;). Now the jacket and the jeans made a more casual look the Mal wanted it. She wanted a bit of a posh look for the vendor. I thought about it and remembered a wonderful blouse, wich I got ages ago at bijou. I am not even sure if the brand still exists but this blouse is like an evergreen for me. For the shoes I decided to go with the “Bonnie” boots from Redgrave, to underline the amazing feminine attitude that the skin has. For the hair I did know I want something short but as well it should not be too smooth and tight. I remembered the “Tidal” from exile, again a male hairstyle, but I do not care about that anyways if I matches my face and my stylings ;). After we looked at the styling we still missed something and all of a sudden I got the idea to put on a corset what should go with the blonde hair, the jacket buttons, the bracelets, the ornaments on the huge bag and the golden earrings, as well certainly with the skin tone.

After Malicia finished the pictures we had to laugh a lot after she said the outcome of the picture remembered her of Lady Diana :p .

So take a look for yourself and try the demo… like I said the demo has a wonderful free lipstick in it πŸ˜‰

Chop Zuey: Art in Second Life ;)

Chop Zuey Full

The idea for this post was born when IΒ  visited the Arts in Hats event, that was happening not too long ago. Belle Roussel, owner and designer of Chop Zuey, made the wonderful “In Memory of a Watermelon Fascinator” for that event and from the moment I saw it, I had the imagination of being in a museum watching art.

The wonderful “La Traviata” gown as well is one of the newest creations of Chop Zuey. Belle started to make full gowns with matching jewelry parts not too long ago and opened her new Sky Boutique, where you can find all this amazing creations. The “La Traviata” gown is available in different colors but with my addiction to black clothing, I certainly picked the black version for the post πŸ˜‰ The wonderful black gown is mesh made and the amazing jewelry parts, like the upper end of the gloves, the beautiful shoulder part, as well the earrings, bracelets and the necklace are part of the gown. Basically Belle made a ready to wear outfit for all lovers of the elegant evening wardrobe ;).

The hat is one of the amazing creations of Xenobia Foxclaw. She made an amazing collection of black and white hats and the “Blackwell No. 6” is just one of them. So you might wanna go over to the Xen’s Hats Mainstore if you wanna see ll of the new releases ;).

The hair is one of the amazing hairstyles of EMO-tions. The “Chevia” hairstyle was made in a special color for Miss Chevia, as she won the auction of the FFL event, where Mirja Mills, owner and designer of EMO-tions, auctioned herself off for charity. I am very happy that Mirja now gave this hairstyle to all of us as, it is an amazing elegant hairstyle that still has some edges πŸ˜‰

Now I just had to try building a little to realize my imagination of the museum at night thing πŸ™‚ . Those who know me, might figure what it took until I had those few prims together and some texture on it. Usually if I try to build you have something apocalyptic looking something where you really have to have a good imagination to figure out what I wanted to do originally *laughs*. But after some hours it worked out somehow and … tatataaaaa… here it is πŸ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Having fun with my Inventory and sneak in Lovely’s^^

My inventory is a mess most of the times with all the blogging items, new releases and the stuff I buy, cause I think I have tome to blog it still *lol*.Β  But I have to admit I love my mess *giggles* Sometimes it gives me christmas more than once during the year if I discover something I never thought of :). Lately I found a super cute outfit from Inga Wind, designer and owner of Inga Wind Clothing sitting in my inventory. I put it on and really liked it.

The “Codie Jumpsuit” really is a cool outfit for the everyday wardrobe and with the cuteness it has by itself I could combine it wonderful with some accessories, without pushing it in the back of the view. “Codie” is made of lots of different shades of blue and as well many different fabrics. The chest part is kinda ruffles while the rest of the body is more straight. The sweet lines that hold the top in place are made with prims and the exact same look you will find for the belt. The neat cap completes the cool casual blue look πŸ˜‰

The jewelry for this amazing blue look comes from Mandala as I thought the textures and the style would go amazing with each other and for me it did :p

The shoes are a combination of the new “Oxa” mesh ankle boots by Baiastice and the “Legwarmer for heels” from G Field. Sissy Pessoa, owner and designer of Baiastice, released wonderful new mesh ankle boots in uni colors and a special edition of mixed colors, I will have them soon here on my blog as well :).

As I was roaming around in my little box in side of Lovely’s Inventory (if you now ask yourself why that, just read here: http://wiccamerlin.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/lovelymi-facetattoos-makeups-more/ πŸ™‚ It was a sweet little fun Lovely did not too long ago πŸ˜‰ ) I decided to walk out and peek a bit through Lovely’s inventory. I found a lot of cool makeups lying around and some stuff of House of Rage, what she designed and worked on. As well al lot of pictures and other clothing, suddenly I saw a folder called “[MIWA] Poses”… now I became curious… Lovely does poses? I sneaked inside the folder with my mini digi cam and tried the out. The were so cool that I had to snap them… then I heard a rumble going on outside and realized Lovely is back and was working something in her inventory! I grabbed my cam left the poses and sneaked back to my box hiding… but take a look what I got…

!Silken Moon – “Flapper” line!!!

!Silken MoonMalicia Python again made a masterpiece of skin!!!

The new “Flapper” skin line has an amazing retro touch and for every single of the 5 makup versions Malicia made an awesome ‘silent’ skin and some matching eyes, what is great if you wanna have the real vintage retro look for example for 20s pics :p

“Brooke”, “Coco”, “Djuna”, “Fay” and “Thelma” each have their own eyebrows and even painted lashes!!!

As Malicia and me are both huge and crazy Rocky Horror fans… we discovered that in one of our midnight talks… I could not resist to try making a Magenta using “Coco”, one of the new “Flapper” skins and make her a little surprise πŸ˜‰

Because of this idea Malicia created a little theatre in the store to set the new “Flapper” skins in the right light. It really became super cute you should take a look by yourself at the !Silken Moon Mainstore!!!

“It’s just a jump to the left…”

New skin label on the grid – Dessee’s Skins!

Lately I had the honor to model for some of the vendor pics of a new skin designer – natalie wells, designer and creator of Dessee’s Skins.

All the skins mostly are made in different tones so you can choose the teint that matches you best πŸ™‚

Beside the ‘normal’ skins you can find as well amazing limited skins at Dessee’s Skins.

What caught my eyes was the fact that some skins have masks or jewelry that is already on the skins itself. I guess Dessee’s Skins is a brand to watch out for and with what natalie wells comes up in the future πŸ™‚
