“Burtonesque”

I sense there’s something in the wind, that feels like tragedy’s at hand.

And though I’d like to stand by him, can’t shake this feeling that we have.

The worst is just around the bend.

And does he notice my feelings for him?

And will he see how much he means to me?

I think it’s not to be.

[Sally, Nightmare before Christmas]

That I am a Tim Burton lover is not a secret. I love the movies and I as well love t he architecture and the clothing that is used in all of the movies. Anyways if Nightmare before Christmas, Corpse Bride or Beetlejuice ( and so many others certainly) – I am an addicted and saw them all more than once 😉 I love the dark humor and the way how Tim Burton expresses things in his movies.

When I saw the “Elvina” outfit from .AiShA., I instantly had a ‘Buronesque’ idea in mind.

The striped leggings immediately pulled the “Burton” trigger in me :p

When I was looking for some furniture for my set, I just typed ‘Burton’ in my inventory search and had a lot of things coming up, that I already forgot that I have them!

I played around with the “Inspired by Burton” set from 22769 and completed the set with a bookshelf from Toiz and some parts of the “Burton Tea Party” from Cheeky Pea. I liked the shelf with the books falling out so much for the whole scene 😉

It was really hard to choose from all the snaps I had – I had so much fun playing with the set and all of my Poseidon poses 😉

Lazy afternoon at the Record Store

When I got the amazing record store from 22769, I immediately wanted to do a music listening inspired picture as I totally wanted to showcase this amazing set.

It is a gacha with 18 items including the rare. On top there was the special exclusive for the Epiphany, which is the actual record store building, which I did not use for this post as I always have trouble with lightnings in closed rooms :p (Not to mention, that I found out AFTER the pictures were done, that I can seperate the front and roof and just remove them for better light settings… DOH)

So I needed an outfit that was appropriate for a record store… something cool and urban probably would match the best.

The perfect base for that kind of look seemed the “Gymnastic Suit” from PurpleMoon. Again Poulet Koenkamp – designer of PurpleMoon – amazes me with her texturing. all those different patterns and fabrics on one outfit and the amazing cut outs paired with the upper body harness are simply stunning!

The cool jacket I found at Sabotage and since I anyways have a weakness for oversized clothing , I totally had to have it :p

Since I saw a lot of this new trend of pimping urban sporty wear in RL lately I added the “Nemesia” ankle boots from Glamistry. They added the elegant touch to the whole style that kinda pimped it the way I wanted it to 😉

When I was looking through my hair, it was kinda fate I guess, that I found the “Rhythm” hair from Doe. I know I got it from an event as I thought it would fit super cool to something I was planning on a while ago and certainly.. I forgot about it until today*giggles*

With the super cool earphones attached to it, it was the perfect hairstyle for my lazy record store day!

Today kinda was a challenge for me as I am not very familiar with the more sporty looking styles, but the more I tried stiff the more I really started to like it. So I probably will explore that kind of look more in the future 😉 Maybe some when I am allowed to play with the cool kids then*snickers*
