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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Styling Challenge – It is all about a Bow!

Ok… I admit I am a little bot crazy sometimes :p, but most of you know that anyways ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyways, today the reason for my style and pictures was a wonderful head bow.

A friend gave it to me, it is part of her new gacha and when I saw it, I just HAD to think about a ways how I could showcase it ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, where to start with… first of all, put the bow on. That already was a hard choice, because Twelve gave me not only one to choose from :p. In the end I decided to go with the”Black Snow” one. I always had an addiction for black, white and red so that one just really caught me.

First I thought about a lingerie styling for the bow only and went through my lingerie folder, where I found the “Claire” teddy set from Blacklace. When I did put it on, I realized only lingerie would not be what I would like for the ‘Bow style’ and I started experimenting with several ideas.

I tried some dresses and gowns, they all looked nice, but maybe too nice and smooth ๐Ÿ˜‰

Then I found the “Hisa” leather leggings from Lassitude & Ennui in my leggings folder and with the black and white combination they looked amazing to the bow, but had a serious break/collision at the hips with the lingerie. I needed something to cover that up without hiding one of both. Next step – I typed ‘shorts’ in the search field of my inventory. Oh man… I better should not have done that… I did not even realize before how many ‘shorts’ I have…

Ok… focus Wicca… focus… you need something to cover the waist area. Maybe some high waist shorts would be a good idea! Back to the search window – ‘belted shorts’

Bingo! The “Celine” shorts from Asteria popped up as oe of the first and when I tried them on, I knew those would be the ones to use.

Now the arms looked a little bare and I thought about some kind of jacket. After trying some long-sleeved jackets, which usually were either close or too close in the front, I came across the “Neith” jacket, made by [sys].

That amazing jacket with the scales looking fabric and the short sleeves was just perfect, with the great open front. That even gave room for the amazing necklace from Empyrean Forge.

A tattoo for the arms came to my mind first, but after trying som of my favourite tattoos, I realized I need something more subtile. The amazing slit and sheer sleeves from the “Occult Jacket” just matched awesome under the short sleeves of the “Neith” jacket from [sys].

Looking at the style from all sides I really was happy with it, just some shoes were missing. No high boots, that would take off too much from the leggings, but pumps or stilettos would be too ‘tiny’. All of a sudden an ankle boots came to my mind, which I got longer ago and never had a chance to wear them. The super cute “Wicked” shoes from Moon Elixir. They even come with an amazing socks option!

PERFECTAMENTE!

With that weird mix and match, I got the feeling, that no location, that I know of would fit and so I started to build my own little set for the picture. The “Kira” sculpture from E.V.E Studio is an ultra rare of one of Noke’s gachas. First I thought it would be too huge, but with the great liquid looking ground part it worked out so nicely. I added the “Ivy Bonsai” and some parts of the “Chained Roses”. First it looked like a whole mess, as I am not the greatest set builder, but after some moving and twisting and turning it fell into place ๐Ÿ˜‰

I never made a style based on just one hair bow, but I have to admit, that style would have never come together like this, if I would not have started with the bow :p

Maybe I should do that more often again… just start with a little accessory and see what it does lead me to!

Crazy Connection: The question that matters

CC AD 1

The question that matters.

Sirena was a young woman leading a carefree life. She had a good job, no worries and the men courted her, though she did not really care for them. All in all, she did not really care for anyone but herself, using the same excuses we all tend to use. โ€œThat is none if my business.โ€ โ€œWhat can I do about it?โ€ or โ€œI donโ€™t want to interfere.โ€

She lived close to the graveyard and when the weather was fine, she took a shortcut there from the bus home. One evening, she saw a woman on a bench, crying bitter tears. The woman looked at her, but Serena quickly looked away. When she was about to leave the graveyard an old witch โ€“ by the looks of her โ€“ stepped into Serenaโ€™s way and asked straight away โ€œWhy didnโ€™t you ask the woman why she cried?โ€ Serena was a little scared and mumbled, I thought she was mourning, this is a graveyard after all. What can I do about her grief?โ€

The old witch looked at her sadly and shook her head. โ€œDear girl, you need a lesson in compassion. I hex you not to be able to leave the graveyard until someone shows you the sympathy you denied that woman.โ€

CC AD 3

Serena did not know if to laugh or to be scared, the old woman had disappeared as sudden as she showed up. Serena headed for the exit but ran into an invisible wall. She tried to get out at another spot, but to no avail.

Whenever she tried to talk to someone, they ignored her. After a while the place took its tribute, her eyes burnt out from crying over her own sad fate, her nails grew into claws, in short, she became a fearful sight. People started to run away from her thinking her a demon of some sort.

One day, when she was sitting numbly on a gravestone mulling over her fate and feeling the pain of being ignored, she finally learned her lesson. For the first time, she did not cry out of self-pity, but for shame and pity for all the people she had ignored all her life.

Suddenly she heard a warm male voice behind her. โ€œExcuse me, can I do anything for you?โ€ She felt the curse break and when she turned round she saw a man, just like herself smiling at her. โ€œI think you can go home now.โ€ He said.

Etchaflech & Voluptia featured in the Maniera Magazine

ManieraModels_CorsetFeature_LovelyMiwako7399 Menna_December12_Lineup_v3

For the actual Maniera Magazine December 2012 (http://manierasl.mymaniera.com/) I had the great honor to be featured in a wonderful fashion spread of Lovely Miwako. She made a special corset themed article about how different corsets can look.

We all got sent different corsets from Etchaflesh and Voluptia and Lovely asked us to style them in a vintage non typical lingerie manner. As well she wanted us all to choose one tattoo that we wear through the whole spread.

ManieraModels_CorsetFeature_LovelyMiwako7399 Menna_December12_02

For the first picture Lovely placed me on the floor besides SterlingZen. The corset I was wearing for this picture came from Voluptia and everyone that knows me… I am a corset addicted even in RL, so to style the corset in a non lingerie way for me was like if you tell me I just won in a lottery *grins*

I love a lot the different vontage stylings from the 50’s to the 80’s ( it still scares me that 80’s are called vintage now too^^) and so I was going for my favourite urban look as well with the heavy boots and the tattoos and some fishnet stockings and torned stockings. The huge glasses and the pinup hair added the perfect finish for the look in my view.

ManieraModels_CorsetFeature_LovelyMiwako7399 Menna_December12_05

On this picture, I had the great pleaure to be with Katherine Comet a wonderful and classy Lady that shines at my side with a wonderful corset styling that reminded me a lot on the old racing pinups I saw so many times on that collectable retro/vintage, metal signs from coke or even others… not sure how they are called in english, mostly you find them in bars ๐Ÿ™‚

For the second look I was given the corset and the sneaker boots from Etchaflech. I added the neck corset as well from Etchaflesh, pantys and garterbelt from Maitreya.

Lovely did an amazing job in putting different ladies, diffrent looks and attitudes together to show a wide range of what corsets can do… weither of elgant, grunge, rocker, lingerie, vintage or burlesque… as different as we ladies are as different corsets can be used for anykind of styling, that you can think of ๐Ÿ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Scary Story

A pretty woman was serving a life sentence in prison for murder. Angry and resentful about her situation, she decided that she couldn’t spend her life in prison. She began plotting ways to escape from the jail.

She became good friends with one of the prison caretakers. His job was to bury any prisoners who died, in a graveyard just outside the prison walls. Whenever a prisoner died, the caretaker rang a bell, which was heard by all of the prison inmates. The caretaker then got the body and put it in a casket. Next, he entered his office to fill out the death certificate before returning to the casket to nail the lid shut. Finally, he put the casket on a wagon to take it to the graveyard and bury it.

Knowing this routine, the woman devised an escape plan and shared it with the caretaker. The next time the bell rang, the woman would leave her cell and sneak into the dark room where the coffins were kept.

She would slip into the coffin with the dead body while the caretaker was filling out the death certificate. When the caretaker returned, he would nail the lid shut and take the coffin outside the prison with the woman in the coffin along with the dead body. He would then bury the coffin.

The woman knew there would be enough air for her to breathe until later in the evening when the caretaker would return to the graveyard under cover of darkness, dig up the coffin, and set her free.

The caretaker was reluctant to go along with this plan, but since he and the woman had become good friends over the years, he agreed to do it. The woman waited several weeks for one of the other prison inmates to die.

One night, she was asleep in her cell when she heard the death bell ringing. She got up, picked the lock of her cell, and slowly walked down the hallway. She was nearly caught a couple of times. Her heart was beating fast.

She opened the door to the darkened room where the coffins were kept. Quietly in the dark, she found the coffin that contained the dead body, carefully climbed into it and pulled the lid shut to wait for the caretaker to come and nail the lid down.

Soon she heard footsteps and the pounding of the hammer and nails. Even though she was very uncomfortable in the coffin with the dead body beneath her, she knew that with each nail she was one step closer to freedom.

The coffin was lifted onto the wagon and taken outside to the graveyard. She could feel the coffin being lowered into the ground. She didn’t make a sound as the coffin hit the bottom of the grave with a thud.

Finally she heard the dirt dropping onto the top of the wooden coffin, and she knew that it was only a matter of time until she would be free at last. After several minutes of absolute silence, she began to chuckle quietly to herself.

Feeling curious, she decided to light a match to find out the identity of the dead prisoner beside her. To her horror, she discovered that she was lying on top of the dead caretaker.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 06/06/2012 – Rainbow

Today I would like to show you one of my styling ideas I had for the now finished LeeZu contest. One of the ‘Color me This’ contest themes was called ‘Rainbow’ and you had to mix and match as much colors as possible and still present a good look.

I really wanted to showcase it in a special way. More in an artsy way than I usually do my own pics. I was thinking for a longer time for the right photographer as suddenly an old friend came to my mind. The wonderful GM Nikolaidis, owner and creator of Fluke poses. I admired his graphic work for longer by watching his flickr and from past time shoots he did of me for designers. I had no clue he does clients work as well! After I found that out I ran into his IM asking him if he would do the pictures for me LeeZu rainbow style and he agreed!!!

So all the wonderful pictures of this post are made by GM Nikolaidis ๐Ÿ™‚ Now lets take a closer look of the style it self. I tried to combine as much colors by using LeeZu items and outfits only.

To have a base to work from I started with the dress. The “Catch Lily” dress is a longtime favourite of mine and so I began with taking 2 different colors for top and skirt of the “Catch Lily” dress – blue for the skirt and beige for the top. To add some more colors, I took the “Cat Tights”in yellow and put the “Anna” stockings in spring to put them over the tights. For the shoes I decided to go with the “Street Blues Boots” in mixed red and for the hat I used the “Natty Scarf Pin” as well from LeeZu. Just a few itemsย  are non LeeZu items and I will credit them in the style card at the end ๐Ÿ˜‰

I would like to thank GM Nikolaidis for his amazing pictures… I never dreamed about such pics ;). To see all the wonderful LeeZu creations you best take a look at the LeeZu Mainstore and if you catch the right time maybe I meet you there while my store shift ๐Ÿ˜‰
