Winter Echoes in Spring

I am not in gown moods too often, but if it is such a stunning gown like the “Yvaines Garment” from Enfant Terrible, even my smooth and romantic side comes through πŸ˜‰

When I put on the gown, I immediately got a dreamy princess feeling. I added the amazing “Winter Fur” as well made by LeEnfant Terrible – I am sure no pixel animal had to die for it and it was just handmade by the amazing designer πŸ˜‰

The incredible amazing head-piece was made my Eudora3D. It contains the headpiece, face chains and a left and right side part. For my post I used the silver one but you can get a gold version as well.

The hair certainly had to fit with the head-piece and as well I wanted it to go with the fantasy and dreamy idea. My final choice for the hair fell on the “Helga” hair style from EMO-tions. Usually I use a blonde tone but for my dreamy ice princess, this time I chose to go with a white hair color.

The awesome “Wassail” necklace, which perfectly matched the headpiece, comes from Empyrean Forge. I adore their jewelry a lot, as it is always so detailed that you have to zoom in really close to see all the amazing details.

The location is one of my favourites as well – Winter Moon. The whole year you have a winter themed sim installation with all kind of different corners for amazing pictures.

Let it Snow! – Winterfun with [sys] & EMO-tions

We really got some freeze days over here in Germany the past few days and a lot of snow!

That kinda was one of the reasons, why I wanted to do a cold, winter look in a snowy environment :p

The amazing “Morisette” dress from [sys] was in the actual BishBox, which you can get just one more day before the new one will get released. The theme was ‘Wild Winter’. The BishBox is a monthly subscription box for the urban, crazy and wild girls of SecondLife. Every month 15 designers contribute for an amazing collection of wonderful items. All you need to do is just subscribe or preorder your box. No more window shopping, just unpacking a box of cool goodies πŸ˜‰

The mega cool necklace, comes from EMO-tions. I am totally in love with the “Hawk” necklace. It is a huge frame with an amazing non symmetric look, perfect for a casual style.

Because of the winter season I at least wanted to add a jacket, but not cover up the whole dress. So I chose one of the awesome “Jacket over Shoulders” from COCO.

For the shoes I wanted something flat, to get a more casual, cool look, but as well it should match the winter themed idea. In the end I chose some simple docs with two different high socks, which I found on Marketplace from Ducknipple. They have a huge color HUD for the shoes and the socks and the higher one just touched the bottom seam of the dress – perfect – as they would have been made for it.

The hair should be something loosely, smart looking and so I went with one of my favourite hair brands. KoKoLoReS always has some more extraordinary looking hairstyles, which look to me very modern and fashion forward with their wisps and wild looking strands.

I really do love my new bento head from LeLutka. The rigging is amazing and the animations do look so smooth, nice and realistic. I was not a LeLutka addicted before the bento heads but after testing most of the popular bento heads for over one week, I came to the conclusion that LeLutka definitely has the best one for me. It does support shaping in an awesome way even if you put your sliders to extreme sizes without breaking or destroying the mesh or make it look awkward. The price is as well fantastic for what you get. 5K for the full head with animations already in it and they even upgraded to an Omega support now. You can use all the amazing Omega appliers and they fit perfectly.

Since I was not using LeLutka heads before I had to upgrade my makeups a little and went to the great sale of La Boheme. There I found various, super cool eyeshadow and lipsticks. The “Stella” eyeshadow I am using for today’s post was one of them.

The location, is an amazing sim I found while I had one of my exploring days. It is called Neverfar. It is made with so much love to the detail and so many different corners that invite to spend a lot more time to explore than just for a few pics. I met the owner there when I was walking around and she was super nice and kind. It really was a wonderful experience and as well a very productive time πŸ˜‰

[Tunes]

When leaves have fallen
And skies turned to grey
The night keeps on closing in on the day
A nightingale sings his song of farewell
You better hide for her freezing hell

On cold wings she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing
Come on just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe

Azul Sofia 2

When she embraces
Your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you are all alone
And when she whispers
Your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you

She covers the earth with a breathtaking cloak
The sun awakes and melts it away
The world now opens its eyes and it sees
The dawning of the new day

Azul Sofia 3

On cold wings she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing
Come on just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe

Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away
Haven’t you seen?
Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

Winter Dreams

Snow Art 1a

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

[Bing Crosby]

Snow Art 3a

Dreaming of a white Christmas… yes .. exactly that was what I was doing for the past days. I still did hope that at least a few snowflakes would show up for Christmas but… sadly not even a single one…

So I had to play with snow for the pictures πŸ˜‰

First I wanted to dress up all in white, sometimes I like it when I can blend myself into the scenery or background as to me that usually makes it most dreamy and interesting.

I started with the “New Age” pants in white, I always liked those pants and the special shape of them. Then I added the “Orion” collar from [sys]. The collar covers the chest barley and if you move it shows more than I like πŸ˜‰ So I had to search for something that I could use as a base to not distract too much but as well cover my body at least a little bit. I used the layer of the “Mummy Bride” of Ezura Xue. Just a few bandages around my chest and waist πŸ˜‰

The shoes are from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The “Shenna” heels in white of the ‘Chic Edition’ pack. I already had a funky touch so I went for the amazing horns from Death Row Designs. The cool knee patches are part of an [sys] outfit called “Alcane”

Now I had to find a place with snow and after trying a lot of different sims which are just Christmas themed I found this wonderful little place. A wonderful landscape with a natural and realistic looking ambience. Sadly I forgot to LM the place and after hopping around so much I forgot how it was called *grumbles* But I will try to find it again and update the post then πŸ˜‰

*UPDATE: Found the place again and it is called “Let it Snow”

I hope you all will have some wonderful, relaxed and peaceful days with the ones you love.

Merry Christmas!

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

Winter Dreams with Finesmith and SAS!!!

One of the latest releases of Sascha’s Design was the “Roodvosje” gown here shown in lavender. Again this gown has many possibilities for the skirt as we know it from Sascha’s Design πŸ™‚

This delicate textured gown got me in a huge winter princess feeling so what could go better with that amazing shining dress then one of the latest releases by Finesmith… but first lets take a closer look at the gown πŸ™‚ The texture is a masterpiece and it shows again the amazing skills of Sascha Frangilli if it comes to textures and design. The huge shoulder part makes a wonderful cleavage and gives a wonderful dreamy touch. The skirt wishes lightly over the ground while you walk and gives a very elegant feeling.

Now the attention goes to this amazing jewelry… as I mentioned earlier it is one of the latest releases by Finesmith. Yula did a wonderful “Snowflake” set. This amazing set is made of so many little prims… I wonder that yula not gets crazy with all that little parts sometimes :p This set really again shows her creativity and sense for style and design. This snowflakes are so detailed and really look like as they were just taken from an iced window… now to something very great yula has on her jewelry…

As you can see the jewelry is fully colorable. That comes because yula makes the effort and puts menu in her colorsets… this menu let you change the metals as well as the gems and even in more than one color for this set. The metals are not just silver and gold, you will find way more colors like sky, pink, black and copper only for the metals, what already gives you a huge range of possibilities for matching your clothing. For the “Snowflake” set you have the option to change the gems in 2 parts as you can see on the pic. So the whole jewelry set is totally menu driven for all parts – earrings, bracelet, ring and necklace… yes I used the bracelet for my forehead and head on this gown*grins*

So make your way to Sascha’s Design and Finesmith to get your personal winter princess look πŸ˜‰

Holy Days are coming and Inga Wind Clothing makes Ms Santa sexy and adorable!

Inga Wind - Santa Girl in red and blue 123

Holy Days are coming and Ms Santa will be lonely at home until her husband comes back from his great tour all over the world. And she thinks how she can him welcome back and relax him from his hard job…There she got a hot tip to make her way to Inga Wind Clothing…cause she heared that there she will found the right outfit for that! and she found it…The Santa Girl outfit Inga Wind made…

 

“This would be the perfect outfit for the return of my love” she thought by herself and was standing in front of the vendors. First she saw the Santa Girl in red and she could not resist to buy it…it seemed perfect for the whole evening if her beloved husband comes back. With the great coat sh can go out and help him to get the reindeer in their stables without getting cold and if it stiikl snows she can put on the sweet sanat hat or even just get the amazing hood of the coat up on her head and will be safe and warm. If they are ready and back in she can make him a big pott of cocoa. While she is in the kitchen she just can get her coat off and has the perfect sexy outfit for a nice evening for 2 under it.

As she was standing there and thinking she thought ” Who told me always wearing red?” As she saw the same great outfit in blue…She opened her purse and smiles as she saw she has enough to get this also and thoughtΒ  that she could surprise him another day with the blue one too.

Back at home she went to the sleeping room where the big mirror is. She dressed first in the red one and looked into the mirror and saw that this great outfit has such nice amazing details and attachments she did not realize before. Ther was a bag with that dress and she could not take her eyes off as she saw the amazing little details and even she found a sweet surprise in it…2 kinds of chocolate that peeked out on the top of the bag…quickly she looked into the blue box and found the same great bag with sweetes and smiled as she thought on serving chocolate to the warm cocoa…As she searched further in the red box she found a fantastic pairs of white boots and she was dacing around through the sleeping room as she put them on and they looked sooooo sexy. Then she stepped closer in front of the miror and noticed the awsome little with love made lower armparts of the dress with that sweet white pompoms…and then belt…a sweet very nice made buckle holds the leather belt together that holds the skirt in place…her desire grown more and more and she nearly could wait until her husband comes back…but she has to wait a few days until he will be finished and back home…so she left the great dress on and thought about to walk again to Inga Wind Clothing..maybe she could find some more sexy and great outfits for the rest of the year πŸ˜‰
