Gothic Moments with LeeZu!

Leezu  - Aurora 001

Anyways if furniture or fashion LeeZu always amazes us with her creations. Today I have the pleasure to showcase one of her latest creations, the “Aurora” gown.

This delicate and elegant gown is a firework of textures and fabrics. The bodice is made with a black satin looking fabric. The right side has an amazing line over the shoulder and the left is totally blank what gives a very sexy touch.  The belly is covered by some filigree white lace on a black base. The black skirt is covered by a wonderful white laced top skirt. A beautiful brooch decorated the left side of the bodice 🙂

The jewelry I decided to wear with the “Aurora” gown comes from Baboom. For this stunning gown I wanted to have something that is not blingy or too shiny but still something special. The “Xena Set was exactly the right addition. With the unusual shape and the cool non symmetric wholes it complemented the gown in a very special way. The set contains bracelets and a collar.

The incredible hat was made by [AD] Creations. The “Sophie Mesh HEaddress” added some more elegance and some serious mystic feelings to the whole look. With the horns, the black roses, the steel cage in front of the face and the veil parts it really made a great finish for my today’s look 😉

To underline that black and white idea behind it I put on some of my favourite nails from Nailed It – the “Cracked Set”.

The other Me…

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 001

I have seen another sky
I have climbed another tree
I have wished another star,
above another star lit sea

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

And I have seen another sunrise,
and another lightning storm
I’m not just the me you see
You see another me was born

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

Somewhere I’m happy
I’m smiled at understood
In another Place I lift my face,
not hide it in a hood

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 002

First of all I would like to thank Malicia for the time and the base idea for this pictures. She came up with the mirror idea and as well donated her mirror to the shooting 😉

We both wearing the newest gown release of LeeZu. The “Saphire” gown is a fully mesh made gown. It is available in many different colors but for the post we had to choose 2 and so we decided to go with plum for me and black for Malicia. The wonderful shoulder piece is to add single so you can even decide to go with or without it. As well part of the outfit the little hat is. The amazing little hat with the tentacles just adds the little extra elegant and couture touch.

The jewelry I chose to wear is made by Lazuri for the MVW 2014 contest. The “MVW 2014 Eva Luxury” set is an amazing set containing 2 types of earrings, bracelets, rings and a wonderful necklace made of 3 parts wich gives you the option to wear it in 3 different ways. As for all the amazing Lazuri jewelry the set is menu driven and you can recolor all parts to kinda customize the set to your likings and needs.

For the poses we needed some mirrored ones. For a long time I asked myself,why some pose makers made these and the only reason I could think of was, that you carry something in your hand that might be on the wrong side for the pose. But today I discovered, that they can be very useful if you want to do pictures like that as well 😉 So i went with poses from *PosESioN* and Morgane Batista.

The shoot and preparing was fun and I hope Mal will be with me for some more posts in the future 😉 It is rare if you meet people, that you go along so well and SecondLife gifted me a wonderful friend not only in SL anymore. Thank you Mal, for believing in me and being such an amazing friend for me in both worlds 🙂 .

Love for Donna Flora – GizzA for Squinternet Larnia

yeriakapokalyptic1-2048

Today I would like to show you another contribution for the great Love for Donna Flora event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/)

Please make sure you visit the Love for Dona Flora sim and see all of those amazing designs, that were created to help Squinternet! (Taxi: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/139/155/31)

For the first picture, the credits go out to Falbala Fairey. She asked if I would have blogged the “Yeriak” gown already, the one Giz Seorn, owner and designer of GizzA, made for he Love for Donna Flora event. She wanted to do a special picture together with another new release from GizzA, in a way of good versus evil. As usual I get asked to do the evil part I was wondering, why she asked me for the “Yeriak” gown…  as I arrived I saw Falli in the new “Thorn Dress” and I did understand… Today she gets to be the evil and me the good one! I would like to thank Falli for that amazing picture. She even did some wonderful closeups, that you can see together with her stylecard on her blog (http://falbalafaireyfashionblog.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/in-darkness-shines-the-light/)

Gizza - Yeriak for Donna Flora 001.

Let’s take a closer look on the “Yeriak” dress. The amazing corset shows, how much love for the detail Giz puts into her designs. The filigree and delicate lace that covers the waist and the wonderful opaque colored texture, that is placed on the chest make a perfect combination for this playful, vintage touched outfit. The gloves bring back the theme of the corset and the huge headpiece with the awesome sheer and flexible parts that are repeated in the skirt as well. The huge flowers that decorate the waist and as well the hat add a huge ‘eye catcher factor’ and together with the stockings and the garters it makes a perfect vintage touched outfit. The whole ensemble is a perfect contribution to the Love for Donna Flora event as it kinda is a tribute as well to Squinternet Larnia, the queen of the vintage look 😉

Brave Woman – A Tribute to Donna Flora

Love for Donna Flora full

Some brave women, not the famous ones, fought for the right to vote early in the last century, they were called Suffragettes in a pejorative manner. They went on hunger strikes, were forcibly fed, went into passive resistance and took other measures to claim that women are equal. After almost 20 years of fighting, the right to vote was finally granted in 1919 (USA) and 1920 (UK). Being a political decision, it had a strong impact on the women’s lives and their appearance. Long hair was cut, and skirts shortened, the corsets went. Around then Coco Chanel invented the little black dress offering an unknown freedom of movement tot he wearer. She was right when she said, this dress would be “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.“ Today we think of Flappers, thinking back tot he glorious 20s, who would not have been without some brave women fighting for their rights.

But there are other ways to be brave, face an illness, be there for others, raise children, solidarize and to speak up when needed, to name a few.

When talking about the Love Donna Event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/), Mal and I decided to pay our tribute, too. I guess you will get why we picked the 20’s theme.

 

As Mal was too late fort he Love Donna Flora event, she will donate all her Flapper skins you buy in the main shop. Click here for more details http://wiccamerlin.de/silken-moon-flapper-line/

Or help by visiting the Love Donna Event and enjoy what the awesome designers of SL donated to pay their tribute. The Love for Donna Flora Event will take place from the 25th of July until August the 11th. For a Limo please click HERE (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/135/127/31)

Our hearts go out to Sqinternet, the person behind Donna Flora, please send your hearts, too.

Love for Donna Flora Close

Black & White Fantasies

Violator full

A few days ago soraya Vaher, owner and designer of Violator, released 2 more parts for her new Prêt-à-porter collection. The “Hit me Up” top and the “Luxury Pants” in black & white. Not too long ago, I said I am addicted to black & White anyways, so this combination together with the color matching version of the “Pride Stiletto Ankle Boots” just hit right up to my heart 😉

The amazing “Luxury Pants” come with so many details and accessories already and you can just put them on, no ned to think about any additional accessories. The long pant ruffle that attaches at the right hip, the amazing spikes, the button in the front and the gems of the upper and lower leg are all extra attachments so you have a lot of different possibilities as well. The top comes with kinda the same options. Besides the mesh top you have the desicion of chest flowers the feathers at the shoulder, and as well the gems.

Again soraya made a wonderful ready-to-wear outfit for her new collection that is affordable for everyone 😉 To see the other new colors and releases you best take a look for yourself at the Violator Mainstore.

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: Of Fire and Dancing

Of fire and dancing.

One day, a fire spirit was curious about the other elements and decided to walk their places. She danced up into the air to see the spirits that could fly. But it did not really work. The flying spirits were afraid of her and pushed her to the ground, but she left her fire in the air. So they learned to dance and were a little bit ashamed that they treated the one who brought the gift so bad.

The fire spirit landed where the creature walked. Those creatures were bound by gravity and cautious about the fire. But they tried to use these gifts the spirit brought. The fire spirit like these slow walkers but longed to see her fellow dancers, so she walked to find them again.

Led by the same instinct that makes birds find north and south she danced over the earth to find home. But then the land ended and became water. By another instinct the dancer knew this was an element to kill her. The powers living in the water felt the same and stayed clear of her. So she started to dance at the shore of the ocean to evaporate the water. As you can imagine, it didn’t work. At times the fire spirit can be seen dancing fast over the land she is trapped on, but she always stops when there is water. But you can always see her gift to the earth when you see someone dance.
