“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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

Taylor Wassep, founder and creative head behind the THEMA Magazine had a brilliant idea, which I totally fell in love with.

(Click HERE to find the latest issue of THEMA magzine)

For his latest issue of THEMA, he had the idea to use one ofΒ  Shakespeare’s works and then interpretate it in a Tim Burton inspired way.

You can imagine how straight that went to my heart with my Tim Burton addiction…

So for my pictures I chose Hamlet. Since I wanted to bring the head of Jack Skellington into my pics, becasue I totally love that character, it seemed the perfect match πŸ˜‰

Even more happy I was when Taylor asked me if I would like to be the cover girl for this special issue and if I could style another look. Together with Tempest Rosca who took the picture, we decided to give a try on Lady McBeth πŸ˜‰ The outcome you can see on the very last picture of this post.

I hope you can see the fun I had with those special pictures and how dear they became to me.

Thank you again Taylor for such an amazing theme for the THEMA Magazine and that I again was allwed to be part <3

The mastermind behind some of the most iconic art styling and modern filmmaking – Tim Burton, magically crafts story line thought the guise of whimsical fantasy mixed with overtones of dark elements. The result being a masterful experience that only Tim Burton can create. Likewise, William Shakespeare is thought of to be the greatest English writer in all of history. He too, created works of art that cast it’s character in to dark turmoil and suffering. For the enjoyment of it’s audience and unknowing the modern world. Combining these two creative geniuses pays homage to their brilliance in both writing and style. Please enjoy, Shakesburton

In a Tim Burton Mood with FrEgo & [AD] Creations

FrEgo 01

A few days ago I got a call from 2 dear old friends if I would have time to pose for his new top… what a question! Certainly I have time for those I call friends no matter what.

Plus… I know what amazing things they can do and so I was really excited and curious πŸ˜‰ .

FrEgo_Sleeveless_Summer_Wrap_vendor

FrEgo has no inworld store and you only can find it on Marketplace (https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/117990)

Since yesterday you can find the amazing “Sleeveless Summer Wrap” top there as well in 4 awesome summer colors.

FrEgo 02

But not only the top comes from FrEgo… The cool “Cutoff Jeans”Β  and the kick ass “Combat Boots” with all those sweet little details and in different colors, you will find as well at the FrEgo Marketplace store together with some more super awesome designs.

The huge and stunning hat was made by Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] Creations. The “My head mesh hat” comes with a HUD, wich lets you change the headband, the upper, lower and inner hat texture.

Together with the arm warmers from .shi I felt dressed right and had this Tim Burton mood already because of the colors and the huge hat. So I added some ripped socks and a small necklace to not drag the attention to far away from the clothing and the hat.

For the scenery I wanted to use something Tim Burton like and I remembered a skybox I got longer time ago from DRD and together with the poses from Del May I had a lot of fun going against the casual idea I had in the beginning for that look*snickers*. Sometimes the first idea of a look changes with every detail you add to it or even with everything you remove πŸ˜‰

Breathtaking News & Timeless Favourites by Mea Culpa & PosESioN!!! Starring Dahriel & Wicca

8396338325_9e2421b0a3_b

(Wicca Merlin: Mea Culpa – Back Mamba & Dahriel: Mea Culpa – Painless Obedience; Pose: PosESioN – Hamlet)

Lately my sweet little brother Dahriel, owner and creator of PosESioN, came across that we both liked a lot what the other did and we talked about to do some pics together. I adore his picture skills for a very long time and I was very happy, when he told me he would love to do some weird stylings and art with me together. All ofΒ  sudden he IMed me if I could style anything with Mea Culpa and purple, as he wanted to wear the “Illusory Wisdome” outfit from Mea Culpa. I was thinking on one of my long time favourites of Mea Culpa, the “Hopeless Illusion”. It was one of the very first creations of Tatanka Kaligawa, owner and designer of Mea Culpa. For the poses we used some of the latest releases of PosESioN. As Dahriel and me got dressed he rezzed one of his new skyboxes for the picture and I got huge eyes… The whole skybox was in purple and black and had a look like it could have been a location of a Tim Burton movie! Dahriel and me discovered that we both like Tim Burton a lot – another thing we share as so many others, that we discovered before and I felt even more how much I love my little brother πŸ˜‰

For the next picture we decided to go with one of the latest releases from Mea Culpa, the “X-treme Mirrors”.

(Wicca Merlin & Dahriel: Mea Culpa – X-treme Mirrors; Poses: PosESioN)

The “X-treme Mirrors” is part of the X-treme line of Mea Culpa, a special line, that combines fetish elements with high fashion designs. Again Dahriel rezzed one of his various skyboxes and again it was perfect for the whole scenery… he has the eye for the special detail. More and more I enjoyed our evening that we had together… all the stylings, like for the “X-treme Mirror” I had an idea and he came up with another one, or the other waxy round and we started to mix and match our ideas according to the other… I felt like in heaven. The wonderful mirrors on the “X-treme Mirrors”brought us to the idea to make the picture like there would be a mirror in the middle of the picture. Dahriel mirrored the pose he had for himself and the room as well and with all the amazing details of the “X-treme Mirrors”, the glasses, the wonderful headpiece and the amazing textures the whole picture became art for me.

Wicca & Dahriel 4

(Wicca Merlin: Mea Culpa – Oppressive Prophecy & Dahriel: Mea Culpa – El Matador; Pose: PosESioN – Matador)

Dahriel got he wonderful “El Matador” outfit from Mea Culpa and I had immediately the idea, the “Oppressive Prophecy” would make a perfect match for another couple shot with Dahriel. The gold decorations of both outfits are just like made for ech other. Both outfits have a black basic and with all the amazing prims of the “Oppressive Prophecy” I go the idea of if a fashion matador and his fashion victim. Dahriel loved the idea and started immediately to create the perfect pose. As we thought about a location we agreed because of all the black and gold tines we wanted to have sand and rocks with kinda an arena style for the amazing “Matador” pose from PosESioN.

I would like to thank my little brother Dahriel for an amazing afternoon and evening. For a long time I felt the first time that there is a soul that is somehow connected to mine with all the weird stylings and picture ideas. Our minds are so close that sometimes it scares me πŸ˜‰ , but I could not think of a better little brother than Dahriel! This was a wonderful and amazing time with such incredible pictures and I really hope that this was just a start and we can do many more like this little brother!!!
