In the Evidence of its Brilliance

TUNES

Love controlled by time
Future lovers shine for eternity
In a world that’s free
Put away your past
That will never last
If you’re holding on to a dream that’s gone
I’m gonna tell you about love
Would you like to try?
In the evidence of its brilliance

[Madonna]

And again it was Madonna, the Queen of Pop herself, that inspired me for today’s pictures. I again saw the Confessions Tour Opener on youtube and I so wanted to capture that mood, colors and theme. It looked so cool with her and all the dancers dressed as ponies, her way to move and control them… just awesome.

I digged deep in my inventory and it was quite time consuming to find all the parts I wanted. I did not just want to have a fetish looking pony girl, I really wanted to capture that special mood of the video. I did not want to have a typical pony tail or one one of the ‘usual’ pony boots…

I was so happy when I discovered one of the amazing !dM gachas called “PonyPlay”. I picked the latex looking tail and as well the shiny latex boots with the hooves at the bottom. Those were exactly the base for what I was looking for. The cool outfit with the back-bound arms I found in my inventory in my Ghoul’s folder. It is an older outfit but for today’s post it was exactly what I wanted. The “Bondage Harness” was perfect, but since I am not a friend of having all the private parts completely exposed, I decided to add some cool latex pasties from CURELESS [+].

The poses and the right backdrop were quite a challenge too… I needed a certain light, several light sources and as well something that is not too crowded or busy. I tried with a plain black backdrop first and added some lights and projectors but it did not yet feel right. Then I remembered a background from Foxcity and some cool editorial poses from the same creator. With the neon lights it was perfect and while I played with some windlights I realized that this would be the perfect choice.

Madonna always was/is a great source of inspiration for me anyways if I was thinking about fashion or music. I am sure that will not be my last post that she inspired me too πŸ˜‰

What a Feeling!

TUNES

First when there’s nothing
But a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried
Silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel
Made of stone
Well, I hear the music
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around
Take a hold of my heart
Now I hear the music
Close my eyes, I am rhythm
In a flash
It takes hold of my heart
What a feeling
Bein’s believin’
I can have it all
Now I’m dancing for my life
Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life
What a feeling!

Fates Warning

TUNES

Why is it some of us are destined to stay alive
And some of us are here just so that we’ll die
How come the bullet hits the other guy
Do we have to try and reason why

Are we the lucky ones saved for another day
Or they the lucky ones who are taken away
Is it a hand on your shoulder from the Lord above
Or the Devil himself come to give you a shove.A volcano erupts and sweeps a town away
A hurricane devastates the cities in its way
The grief and misery for the ones that are left behind
The worst is yet to come a hell to face mankind
Be it the Devil or be it him
You can count on just one thing
When the time is up you’ll know
Not just one power runs the show
[Iron Maiden]

Mother of Dragons…

Mother of Dragons 1

I always had an addiction for dragons and my mom always laughed at me when I said “I know there must be some left dragon eggs somewhere, just nobody yet found them. Dragons will be back some when!”

But believe it or not, even if I am a well-educated and taught person and have some knowledge of science… I am still not willing to give up that thought πŸ˜‰

Mother of Dragons 2

Second Life, gives me the freedom to play with fantasies and so it was kinda a given that I needed some dragons πŸ˜‰

Last month when I was invited to put some pictures at Windlight Gallery, paired with the fact that I was watching the latest Game of Thrones season, the idea did grow in my mind to do my very own vision of the Mother of Dragons inspired by the Khaleesi πŸ˜‰

Mother of Dragons 3

Β The dragons I fund at Manticore (Thank you so much Daff for showing me!!!), a wonderful shop for all kind of animals and fantasy creatures. They are wearable and will walk around with you as soon as you have them attached.

The idea of having kinda series for this pictures, came by snapping… first I wanted to just do one picture, and the more I snapped the more ideas came to my mind and all of a sudden they fell together like a short story. In the end I was not able anymore to decide wich one I wanted to use and I just let them be the whole story in the end πŸ˜‰

Mother of Dragons 4

For the outfit I chose one we made for Wicca’s Wardrobe. Originally it was made for a Game of Thrones inspired theme, but we now put it at the store too in 3 different colors.

The “Visenya” is a short outfit with the great collar and some armor plates arranged as a back skirt. It goes very well together with the “Dragon Queen Headpeice”, the “Dragon Earrings” and the “Alysanne Booties”, which also were made for that event.

It really was great fun to play around with the dragons and loose myself in a time that has been long gone… but dreams.. they stay and who knows… maybe someday someone will find a mysterious egg.. somewhere πŸ˜‰

Hunger Games Tribute by Lybra

Lybra  - Glimmer 01

β€œIt’s weird, how much he’s noticed me… And apparently, I have not been as oblivious to him as I imagined, either.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Today our journey through the Capitol and the Districts brings us to District 1, wich stands for luxury. How else than Lybra Rage owner and designer of Lybra could have chosen this District πŸ˜‰ .

District 1 is one of the wealthiest districts of Panem. Parents from district 1 seem to name their children after diamonds or precious gems, items or fabrics, like we have Glimmer and Marvel for the 74th Hunger Games. The children of District seem to be very pride in taking part in the Hunger Games and usually are part of the Careers,Β  who band together to get rid of the weaker ones first.

I would like to start with “Glimmer” a wonderful light golden dress with an amazing golden back piece and a wonderful matching Tiara. The dress itself shows a lot of skin and besides the elegant and classy look that adds a sweet sexy touch as well.

Lybra  - Glimmer 02

The special for this outfit would be, that it is a limited gown with only 20 copies and there are not much left! So go and get your “Glimmer” dress and with that, a piece of the legendary Hunger Games Tribute Event done by Opium Evolution.

Lybra  - Absinthe 01

The second outfit of Lybra for the Hunger Games Tribute is the “Absinthe” gown. In contrast to the “Glimmer” gown this one is made of a dark golden fabric with a long back train, wich is decorated at the end with some amazing feather looking prims.

Those feathers are repeated on the marvelous head – piece as well, wich almost looks like a crown and perfectly fits in to District 1.

To get a hand on those amazing designs please visit the Hunger Games Tribute shopping mall πŸ™‚

Today I was allowed to walk the “Yves Sainte Laurent” Tribute Show on the BOSL Fashion Week done by Boulevard Agency. It was agreat show and many designer donated a special item in tribute to Yves Sainte Laurent. I had the great honor to show case the amazing design of Poulet Koenkamp, genius designer of PurpleMoon. “Catherine” in black this lovely design is called and it really is a wonderful honoring of a great designer…

A wonderful short pencil skirt covers the legs down to the knees. The waist part is decorated with a wonderful prim that imagines a down jacket part. The top is wonderful detailed with a white shirt under a black jacket and on top you have that wonderful prim cape that covers the shoulders and goes down to the elbows. The neckpart shows off a light color part with the amazing filigree feather-looking prims. A totally eye catcher is that amazing huge hat in a lightly vintage style. Over all a dress that definitely turns heads and a wonderful contribution to this special show!

The second special will be presented on the Model Convention 2010 tomorrow during the PurpleMoon show. The Model convention is running for nearly a week now and it seems great sucess..nearly everyday the sim is filled up and informative workshops and lovely fashion shows go hand in hand. Tomorrow for the great ending there will be a runway show showcasing the amazing designs of PurpleMoon.

(Outfit: PurpleMoon – “Corina” /ruby, Model: Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Valeria Endrizzi)

A breath-taking extravagant gown called “Corina” will be the special release for the show on the Model Convention 2010 tomorrow, sunday the 26th of september at 4PM SLT.

The long and elegant gown starts at the top with a very tight shape down to the waist. There the huge skirt starts that moves dreamy with every step you take. The aerial kind of design really let you feel like a princes walking on clouds. 2 prim attachments decorate the shoulders and underline the sophisticated touch. What definitely gets a lot of the view will be the grand back part that gives a light asian touch. The long golden spikes hold a wonderful back fan of lace and red texture.Β  The red texture has a wonderful pattern and repeats the one of the dress perfect.

Perfect to that gown Poulet Koenkamp designed a hairstyle named “Zoe” her shown in ebony. With the sweet knots on the eft side it definitely adds a very high-class touch to the whole outfit.

All those specials make it totally worth to take a look at the PurpleMoon Mainstore and get one of that lovely designs… or 2 or 3 πŸ˜‰

Couture Alert at 3636 & Sneak Preview on a new Body Talking Set!

We all know dianny36 Aeon as a fabulous hair designer… but she has more skills than only hair πŸ˜‰ For the great McQueen Tribute she made a magnificant dress and hair!

“You will be in my heart” is the name of this fantastic dress combined with the great matching hair and hat.

The dress is a masterpiece of art and shows the fantastic creativity of dianny36 Aeon, designer of 3636! The skirt is a plain long white one that makes the basic for that stunning and amazing sculpted prim flowers that round the hips, hold by a 2 striped black belt that breaks the white color. The top has only 2 sweet lines over the shoulder what lets enough room for an amazing jewelry… for me it was the “Ambrosia I” black pearls set from Alienbear. also included are the white gloves that give a classy touch to the whole dress. Sure you will think this gown it very difficult with poses… but even that dianny thought of and included 5 great poses to match this dress! Let’s take a look at the great hair and hat, also made by dianny36 Aeon. It is all one piece so you do not have any trouble with the attachment points πŸ˜‰ The base is a long pony tail hairstyle what is decorated with an amazing high hat that underlines the style of the dress perfect and the face is covered by an awesome black laced veil, what is also part of the hairstyle. This dress in combination with the hat definitely has a very sophisticated and stylish touch that honors the work of Alexander McQueen and makes a great tribute to him!

Another cute couture design is the “Couture-Poker Face” outfit. A short dress with a balloon shaped skirt.

The whole dress is made of cards! The only non card part is the belt that makes the center of this sweet outfit. The skirt has a balloon shaped form and you really can imagine to steal one of that little cards πŸ˜‰ Again dianny shows of her great skills in building and designing with this dress that is made of a such a lot single prims and each one carries a great texture.

Perfect for posing this outfit will be the “Balloon” pose set from Body Talking by Arisia Ashmoot that will be released soon… I was allowed to use the poses for this gown as a sweet sneak preview πŸ˜‰ Thanks Ari! πŸ™‚
