Wicca’s Originals @ DUBAI – The City of Golds

Wicca’s Originals @ DUBAI  – The City of Gold // April 2019

We are back in Dubai! This time we have our Michonne Boots. This over the knee boot has no shortage of attitude! There are straps and buckles going all the way up, along with bold lacing. Metal studs add the perfect accent around the base of this boot as well as on the bits that secure the straps in place. Michonne is all business. No delicate high heels here. Just a thick, no nonsense flat base and attitude that goes for miles. Our Michonne Boots match the color and style of our Jane Body currently available at the Black Fair. The HUD contains the same colors and metals, so styling it up will be a breeze. Michonne fits Lara, Hourglass, and Freya.

Happy Halloween!

Finally it is Halloween!

The much I was waiting for it to happen, the more I am sad that it already is there now… Do you know that feeling? You desire something and when it is there or when you get it you are a little bit sad too, because now you cannot enjoy the waiting time as much anymore? Kinda like Christmas *giggles* even if I do like Halloween much more than that :p

Thank god we have SL where we can have Halloween through the whole year*winks*, so I won’t stop doing scary and spooky pictures as long as the dark season feeling has me in its hand…

Today again I would like to drag your view on those amazing nails. If you read my past 2 posts you will realize I got a lot of amazing nails from FORMANAILS lately ;)I really enjoy the details and all the tiny decorations the nails and hand accessories from FORMANAILS do have. Fingernails are overlooked so often. We just take them as granted, as an accessory we just ad to have something on our hands and usually they are so tiny that they get lost on pictures… same as shoes. What gets overlooked very fast are poses too, I recently made a post about that too. I catch myself a lot of times, when I add accessories that do complete my look and just don’t think about them anymore when I write my post. I soon will have another pose study post, as well as a nail spotlight I guess 😉

For todays post I combined the “Buffalo” hand accessories and the “Stiletto” nails – I just love how they work together! Oh and before I forget to mention, even if I do use the Maitreya version only, there is versions for Vista and Slink hands as well 😉

What better background you could use for a witch post, than the “Magick Shoppe” from DRD. I adore their buildings like in forever and since they had that awesome Stein/Reanimator hunt going this month.. I again was teased so bad for that incredible piece of art and I had to use it for my picture.

The hair is a Halloween special as well with that awesome 2 colors. The full pack comes with 3 special Halloween colors! It was made by no.match and it is named “No.Look”. You can find it at the actual round of Enchantment, but I am sure after the event ends, you will find it at the main store.

And now it is time to take my broom and go for a night out… it is HALLOWEEN!

Happy Halloween everyone!

My Decision…

Not too long ago a very close friend of mine, Seaside, was IMing me, asking if I would be ok. First I was wondering why she would ask me that, but then she told me she was following my flickr and the latest, and very dark pictures did concern her. I thought that was very sweet and I tried to explain to her why I do have this super dark and destructive side as well. I was suffering of depressions a very long time of my life and I sometimes still do, but I learning to live and work with them. So if I do those very dark and morbid pictures, to me it is like checking up on an old friend, deep inside of me. This friend will never leave me, but we both learned how to co-exist. I just have to go there sometimes, to check on him and if he still is there in place, where I put him a long time ago. I do not know if that makes sense, but for me it is kinda like therapy and it does work out 90% of the time. The hard times, where I often was close to the moment of giving up, or even tried to give up are gone and that is what counts for me.

For quite some time, I did not want to see that. I thought with medicine, pills and therapy I can make it go away – I just wanted to ‘heal’. After many different attempts to do that, I met a wonderful person, that to me was more valuable than every therapist I ever met before. He was a therapist too, but I did not met him as a patient, I met him at one of my concerts and we became friends over the time. After we met several times we had a discussion about depressions and he gave me a completely new view on it. He told me, depressions would be kinda the same thing as being alcohol addicted, you can fight the symptoms, but not the facts, case or reasons. He stated, that I can decide, if I let the depressions take over my life or if I take control over the depressions. That sounds very easy , but it is not and I probably would not have been able to do that without any help. I was very lucky to have real friends and family, who helped me over the time of the learning process and it was not done in just a few weeks – it took years.

I decided to take control – even if I maybe never will have 100% of control, it made my life way easier that to just give up and live for the depressions. I wanted more from my life that what my depressions would have allowed me to do. But like I said before, sometimes that ‘old friend’ knocks at my door and I have to decide if I let him in, or if I just go out with him for a while or even go visit him at his place, where I can leave him when ever I want.

I know, depressions can be very different and there is no general solution for that, but you always have decision to fight against or to give up – I never won’t judge over someones decision, as either of both is an option to choose and while one can be good for someone, it can be bad for another person.

I hope, I could make sense with my words – English is not my first language 😉

Wiccattitude with HelaMiyo!

Pose: HelaMiyo – “Wiccattitude” set

When I saw HelaMiyo has a “Wiccattitude” pose set.. certainly I had to play with it and make some pictures 😉

If you like the more edgy and unusual poses  and as well love the option of a mirrored version of your pose… then you should take a closer look at HelaMiyo. I got one of my first picture pose set from HelaMiyo and since back then Miyoko Magic never disappointed with new and exciting pose sets!

Pose: HelaMiyo – “Wiccattitude” set

It is always exciting and as well a huge honor if you have products named after you in Second Life, and when Miyoko Magic – owner and designer of HelaMiyo – even mentioned she thought about me when she was trying to find a name for her new pose set, I was completely blown away and certainly had to make a post about it 😉

Like I mentioned before, mostly we all use poses for each and every picture we do. We kinda see poses as matter of course and rarely think about all the work and effort each single pose needs to become real for SL. I often catch myself, to just use poses and not looking at the brand it was made from or even the name which sometimes as well says something about a pose set, for example a special purpose. That is why I made it as a task for myself for 2018 to have more pose centered posts or pose studies, to just do justice to all the amazing pose creators in Second Life, who make all our amazing pictures possible.

The “Wiccattitude” set is a very energetic one, which can be used in many different ways. You can even turn around the poses and use them laying or even 180° vertical twisted with many different angles to shoot from. Yes, I have to admit I love not just shooting but playing with poses as well, even if they are completely working out different as intended sometimes 😉

Pose: HelaMiyo – “Wiccattitude” set

If you do a shooting focused on poses, the question of the clothing and accessories is not always easy as you want the most flexibility for all kind of movements. I love to use skin tight clothing and look for even those posts the most. This time I started with the boots. The stunning “Syberia” boots from UTOPIA@DESIGN. I have a love for overknee boots, but for many looks you can’t wear them especially if long mesh pants are involved. 99% the pants stick through the boots except if you wear applier pants.

Speaking of appliers, the awesome “Cozy Tights” I am wearing are from .:Avanti:. and I love the details she puts on her fabrics and designs as well as her awesome ideas for appliers.

Pose: HelaMiyo – “Wiccattitude” set

The amazing outfit was made by Salt & Pepper. Originally the “Teisha” was released on We ♥ RP in December but I am sure you can find it in the main store now. I chose to go with the silver/black option for the outfit, that even includes the cool headpiece, that I used instead of wearing hair. On the HUD for the outfit you will find black and white for the shirt color and 5 different metals (black, silver, rose-gold, light gold and gold) for the body suit and the hair part. The outfit as well contains boots with those 5 color, which I did not wear for todays post.

Happy New Year 2018!
