Who says Girls can’t be Car Mechanics?!?

“My dad had always said to not trust something unless it’s taken a tumble in the dirt. He’d meant it for people, and for things. Shiny and new didn’t exist for humankind any more.”
[Katherine McIntyre, Snatched]

Since I went decoration crazy at our parcel with the new store, I thought I can do a few pictures there now 😉

I really forgot how much fun decorating is and I never had the option to go post-apocalyptic crazy… the new look of the store does allow that, I have a feeling that will become a never ending story :p . One of the last garages I filled with neat little things was an actual vintage car mechanic looking slot. I never did know, I have all those gacha items for this special location in my inventory…

When I saw the finished spot I had the idea of a strong girl, which repairs cars and scooters on her own. After I was getting nuts finding oil appliers for hands and face, I decided to do ‘pre work’ pictures *giggles*.

The cool boots are the latest release of [Gos] for the actual round of FaMESHed. They do have a strong rubber looking sole and foot part, that lead into knitted high over-knee socks. I can see the awesome “Louise Trail Boots” as well as part of a school girl uniform or what ever you can imagine to do with them. I personally think they are very versatile. The boots come with a huge color HUD and are made for all popular mesh bodies. 13 colors for the shoes, 12 colors for the socks. As if that would not be already enough you can as well decide about a black or white tread and the way you want your stripes on the socks.

The cool and wild hair is one of the newest releases of no.match for the Salon 52 event. I love the asymmetric style and the high ‘wave’ at the front. It always reminds me about the 80s a little bit where we tried to get our hair fixed with a lot of hairspray like that.

Like I mentioned before, the garage is only one little spot of many at your new parcel and you are welcome to take a look and maybe do a few pictures yourself. I hope to see you there 🙂

It was time again for some futuristic ideas 😉 Some times I do like to give myself some challenges and today, I wanted to bring together the awesome “Aglaya Latex Cyber Collar” – made by A&Y – and the super cute “Frenchie Ankle Boots” from [Gos]. Latex collar and some rough cloth looking ankle boots with a shiny leather tip. I made it a challenge for me to combine 2 complete different fabrics and none of both should look out of place, or have more impact than the other – if that makes sense. I wanted them to shine together with each other and not compete against. I looked though my inventory to balance out the style. The first day I tried it I was nearly giving up as nothing seemed to work – I already was about to use the full “Aglaya” set from A&Y as it goes so perfectly together. But I already blogged the other parts a few times (I still do love them like mad), plus I did not want to throw my first challenge of the year so quickly 😉

I had to find the right balance and fabrics to put together my look. After a while I found a top, that played directly in my hands with those different fabrics and so I had hope again that this could work out nevertheless! The “Ellie Corset Top”, a collaboration of Azuchi and Vinyl. I do have that for a longer time and for today it was the perfect choice. The top has a matte fabric, while the corset has the perfect shiny look. For the arms I used one one arm some classic opera gloves, which I pimped with the cool “Pyper 69 Upper Arm” bracelet. On the other arm I went with the bento enabled “Nemesis Arms” from Wicca’s Wardrobe with the shiny metal plates. The latex skirt from United Colors and some Nylon stockings connected the upper with the bottom and the crazy “Medusa Cyber Hair”, as well from A&Y, combined with the “Disco Glasses from #187#gave the whole style a futuristic look. Since the look already is so full of details I decided to use a more simple background to get a more editorial looking picture.

Let’s see what mood I am in for the next post 😉

Black & Gold – Happy New Year!

 

Back & Gold… always an exciting and most of the time elegant color combination. To me it was always kinda powerful, as well as it is a great contrast between the dark and more matte looking black and the shining and bright gold tones 😉

I started with the “Lily Dress” from United Colors. That dress really is an amazing design. It comes with a HUD, that lets you change the style of the dress from a ground long dress to the sexy upper body design and as a bra top style only! So with the purchase of the dress you will get 3!

I do love mix and match and layering clothing, to create interesting looks, that do not show everything on the first view and so I put the amazing “Ulla” bodice under the “Lily Dress”. With the delicate lace parts and the solid middle part, it was perfect to go with the amazing dress. To stay with the gold & black idea I added the wonderful “Metallic Arrow” tattoo from Izzie’s. The tattoo comes in a gold version and several silver shades as well.

The great bracelet on my right hand and the amazing eyepatch are made by Bauhaus Movement, while iI used one of the “Lady Faith” gloves from Asteria for my left hand – yes, I really do like non symmetrical accessories 😉

The awesome fitting rings are designed and made by Ivi, Bing, owner and designer of Formanails, who did as well the amazing mesh nails with these incredible filigree gold topping.

The eye makeup I found at Nanika. With that golden tear and  the golden dust around the eyes it was a perfect match for my todays look.

For the shoes I used the “Monarch Heels” made by Reign, which I picked up on the great Black Friday sale. The have a huge HUD for leather and metal colors and so it was easy to color them in black and gold as well, to match the styling 😉

For the set, I was thinking a long time what to do, until I decided to go with a more minimalistic look. I only wanted something black and gold for the set as well and not something that totally overloads the whole picture. I decided to go with the amazing bath tube from the pose shop and the awesome “Confetti Balloons” from Apple Fall.

I wish you all some golden and amazing times for 2017 😉

Happy New Year!

Ashes to Ashes – A Tribute to David Bowie

Zen 1a

On the 10th of January 2016, the world lost one of the most genuine and influential musician of the newer music history.

David Bowie

As a musician myself I adored David Bowie since I was 14. His most popular successes he had in the 70s and 80s but he constantly worked on his music and released constantly new albums and was an actor in many movies between 1973 and 2009.

In the beginning of his music career he was called an Avant Garde artist, as his music, lyrics and as well his visual presentations were way apart from the standard back then. Many people called him a punk or rebel back then. He changed his image in the beginning to the 80s more towards the standard pop music image – at least in his visual appearance. His music never lost the incredible stand out factor and anyways what kind of music he created – or with who – it had his very own signature. It always felt like he was one step ahead of the standard 🙂

He left huge footprints at the music world and I am not sure if they ever can be filled… or if they even should be filled… ?

R.I.P David Bowie

Ashes to Ashes

Do you remember a guy that’s been
In such an early song
I’ve heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don’t say it’s true

They got a message from the Action Man
“I’m happy, hope you’re happy too
I’ve loved all I’ve needed to love
Sordid details following”

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain’t got no money and I ain’t got no hair
But I’m hoping to kick but the planet it’s glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I’ll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I’m stuck with a valuable friend
“I’m happy, hope you’re happy too”
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue,
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said to get things done
You’d better not mess with Major Tom

[David Bowie]

I was allowed to walk along with the Scala Grad Students!

Shey Casual 01

Last weekend I had the great pleasure to walk the Graduation Show of the last Scala Academy batch, side by side with the grad students! It was so much fun and I kinda missed my good old student days 😉

Since I got some of the students to know during the last batch of the academy, I did know I really have to watch my stylings, since we really had some very promising stylists! That does not mean I would not watch my stylings usually too but it is a very different feeling to walk along with the models that you taught about styling and other things before.

Plus, I know how obsessed Seashell is with poses and since we all had to be checked by her too… that was quite a challenge 😉

Shey Casual 02

The sponsor for this graduation show was Shey. A wonderful brand with so many different styles. All of us got 3 outfits, which we had to style for the show.

Mine was all very different and so I tried to do justice to each of them 🙂

 My first assigned run was the “Aukje” outfit. The outfit comes as a complete outfit including top, skirt, belt and pants. When I put it on it immediately screamed “rock!” to me. The short skirt with that open vest seriously needs to be styled urban and kick ass for me 😉 So I wanted to have a cool necklace but nothing elegant and sophisticated, more something loose and cool looking. I decided to go with the “Legendary” necklace from Mandala. The huge necklace made me kinda skip on the earrings but I did not wanna go with bare ears either. Solution: The special mesh ears from Mandala with the piercings and tunnels on it!

I am addicted to tattoos and I know many do not really like them on the runway. I had requested permission to do so for that very particular style since it kinda screamed for a tattoo 😉

The tattoo is from my favourite tattoo maker, Julie Hastings, owner and designer of [White~Widow]. The super cool makeup is a combination of Nuuna’s And Zibska, that I added over each other.

It still looked as if it would miss something and I started to experiment with my hair. I tried a lot of different hair and none would satisfy me for the look as I came across the idea of a hat. The extravagant “Dali” hat from [sys]. The hat has an open back, which allows you to have hair that goes a little higher that usually for hats.

Shey Casual 03

My second outfit was more classy chic and when I tried it the first time, I did know I had to put my personal twist on it 😉

 Shey Funky 01

The “Mira” outfit comes with a blouse and skirt. The top is a kinda overlapping style and with its asymmetric shape and the high open front it has a definitely sexy touch.

Shey Funky 02

The skirt with its asymmetric shape and the amazing ornamented belt gave room for a little bit of crazy ness and I decided to try the “Gorgo Metal Helm” That looked so weird that it already was kinda cool again :p So I decided to keep it. Since I have so much going on, on my head, I have to keep the jewelry to a minimum for my personal taste. So I just added the “Sinra” Earrings from Mandala and the “Axiom” bracelet made by [sys].

Shey Funky 03

My 3rd and last outfit looked to me very elegant when I tried it on the first time.

Shey Formal 01

The “Sonia Prestige Gown” as well is an asymmetric gown. The left leg is long down to the ground while the right one ends short under the hips at the right upper leg. The top only is held by a filigree chain round the neck.

I wanted to keep that elegant touch and though about something what could work as well as accessory and for jewelry since the little chain round the neck does not let any room for a necklace. All of  a sudden the “Butterfly Neobaroque” head-piece from Swallow came to my mind. For the shoulders I chose a mixture off 2 different Finesmith sets, or better parts of them 😉

For the earrings I just put some little and simple pearl earrings as I wanted to wear the “Celeste” face chain to complement the chain around my neck.

The show was a blast and I was very happy to be allowed to walk with our grads. Great looks, a great set and a cool bunch of amazing, skilled and upcoming stylists and models 🙂 Thank you Scala, thank you Seashell and Kryptonia!

Pink Wonderland

Pink Alice 02

Yes… it is me… in pink! But no worries I took my pink allergy medicals :p

Sometimes you get special moods out of situations. Exactly that happened today.

It was time to sort and clean a messy inventory again and to go through all the stuff that I bought lately and had no time to unpack yet *giggles*

While I was doing that I found the “”Alice” hat from [sys]. The cool hat comes in 3 different version and for today’s post I decided to wear the fob watch version. If you are not a huge friend of pink you as well can have the “Alice” hat in other colors than that 😉 The hat was created for the Alice in Sexyland event.

The pattern on the hat band reminded me of a wonderful dress got at the SAVIAD Anniversary done by FEROSH earlier this year. The”Neinette” dress in the ‘Fragola’ color matched the hat band so well with the fabric and pattern, that immediately the idea for today’s post was born. The dress comes with amazing spiked shoulder parts. The tight shape accents the fashionistas figure in an amazing way and the cleavage part has some nice cut outs and an amazing collar that surrounds the neck.

Pink Alice 03

The amazing face chain is one of our latest original mesh releases from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The filigree chain with the roses and the little gems hanging down added some playful and romantic touch to the whole look. The pack contains a left and a right version of the face ornament and ou can find it at The Fantasy Collective event.

The cool “Dragon Scale Bracelets” you can find at the current round of the Instruments made by United Colors.

To complete that lightly crazy but still sweet look I added the awesome “Tall Leather Thigh High Boots” from Slink in pink too 😉

The cool flamingo came with the creations from Gizza for the Alice in Sexyland event and the color modified “Ballon Lights” are made by Kyoot.

News from LeeZu, EMO-tions & Finesmith

LeeZu+EMO-tions+Vista+WW 01

Today I am very happy to showcase one of the latest releases from LeeZu. The new “Tangled Top” is an amazing summer addition to every girls wardrobe. The top is just made of chains only and just covers the minimum what is needed to not look naked 😉

I am totally in love with it, because this top gives so many options for mix and matches and simply is a super sexy must have. Some of you maybe remind the amazing “La GOa Top” as well from LeeZu, wich only came as a normal avatar layer, but the new “Tangled Top” has some more great options! It comes as a normal avatar layer, as a tatoo layer, PLUS it has appliers for the Slink, the TMP and OMEGA compatible mesh bodies. On top of that you can choose between a color and a black & white version.

The wonderful “Straight Denim Jeans – 2” are from Vista, yes you heard right, Vista which does the wonderful AOs that many of us use mostly ;).

The do clothing as well (I already posted some of them in the past) and the super tight jeans come in many different versions. You have the choice of 5 different sleeve length from long to short, so you can wear boots or shoes as you like and you always will be able to have the right height for your pants. The jeans as well come with  a HUD to change the colors of the jeans to 6 different ones.

For the shoes I am wearing one of our own ones and the first original mesh made shoes for the Slink high mesh feet. The “Aria Stilettos” are available in different colors to mix and match them to your likings and style.

LeeZu+EMO-tions+Vista+WW 02

Since I am a friend of swag casual styles I added the “4Minute” jacket to my look. The jacked might be an older one, but it is the best I found in that style, which lets me still modify it to make it fit best for my look.

The great “Ashanti” hair is the contribution of EMO-tion for the actual On9 event. This short and ethnic hair just was the perfect addition for the look. With the loose hanging braids this braided updo should not miss in your closet ;).

Last but not least I would like to drag your attention closer to my fae on the amazing new “Malka” set from Finesmith. The set contains earrings, nose septum and a crown (not used in this post). The combination of filigree metals and a little gemstone at the bottom, matched the “Tangled Top” from LeeZu in a perfect way.
