Inspired by David Bowie

In January, when the incredible David Bowie passed away way too early, I was asked if I would like to be part of a special in the Eclipse Magazine.

When Trouble asked me if I would like to be part, I did not even need one second to think about and instantly said yes. He asked us to style something that was inspired of one of the David Bowie songs. One of my favourites always was Space Oddity.

Whe I was told who will take the picture, I was jumping up and down as it was Anderian Sugarplum, one of my favourite photographers and as well a very dear friend. I did know now, with her, I can do all weird stuff and ideas, as she always is able to realize or understand my crazy stuffs 😉

When we met we did some brainstorming and she asked me what I had in mind for my styling or picture. When I told her about and as well showed her the amazing “Alien Drone” from E.V.E Studio, she immediately had an amazing idea for a set and started building it while I finalized my styling 😉

When I saw the result, I was blown away. I really did love it so much and it was exactly the feeling and mood, I had when I put  the whole look together!

Thank you so much for another amazing picture Anderian <3

News from [sys] – Futuristic Mood

If you are in a spacey, cyber or future mood what else than sys and Zibska you can use to think about a styling 😉

I totally fell in love with one of the latest releases of sys called “Exes”. The ensamble contains a wonderful sexy corset and a short skirt. The combination of the black base and the light blue applications caught my attention as i like this color combination a lot.

For those who know me for a while, you know that I never can have something stand alone and that I love to mix and match different designers and sometimes even different styles to create a new look. The “Exes” outfit already was a great start, but I wanted to add some more and so I remebered the “Sybella Noir” dress from Zibska, that I got at the SAVIAD fasion fair. The collar and the cuffs just were perfect to brake the more minaimal looking corset and skirt and added something different and strange to it with the pretty flowers in that very stong and dark black. Now I needed some hair that again would not be too elegant, but as well looks nottoo boring as well. I have to admit, I was wering that hair a lot lately and it became kinda a all time favourite of mine. The “Kat” hairstyle from EMO-tions would be soemthing I would LOVE to try RL on stage with the band as well 😉 .

Now for a female’s worst nightmare… shoes…

Do you know that feeling if you open your closed RL or your inventory SL, even if you have about 150 or more pair of shoes you still think that you have no shoes?

So it was with this styling too. I was trying several of my shoes and some was like … ‘ok’, but nothing really jumped into my eyes. All of a sudden I remebered, that I bought some shoes for slink feet lately on Marketplace, wich I not yet did unpack or sort into my shoe folder.

Welcome to my second nighmare… how those shoes were called and where in my overfilled object folder they are…

“Gladiator Couture Princess Boots”!!!

Yes! Something with Gladiator it was and thank god the inventory search was nice enough to work! Those mesh boots are made for the high version of the Slink feet and it comes in 2 different versions. One materials version for SL and Firestorm users, wich shows a subtile reflection on the shoes if you are able to turn your graphics up to advanced lightning and as well another version for all of those who either use another viewer or cannot pull up the graphics so high. For this post I used the no materials version, as the reflection of the boots nearly let them shine blue and I wanted the dark black to my styling.

Last but not least I looked though my makeup folder. I did not want too much but as well the whole look kinda requested something. So I decided to go with the “Zion” makeup from Nuuna and one of my Wicca lipsticks from Silken Moon wich is tinatable so I could make my own color to match the look.
