Those Days…

TUNES

Fuck it all and no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
I need a voice to let myself
To let myself go free
Fuck it all and fucking no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets

[ Metallica ]

Do you know these days? Where you already know shortly after getting your corpse out of bed, that this won’t be a nice one? I exactly had that today… It is way too hot, anxiety about still having a job in September or not, then when you login you get exactly those people in your IMs, that you do  NOT really wanna talk to… just one of this days…

This mood really played into my pictures today somehow. I wanted to make a “rockabilly-goth” look. Nothing what fits together on the first view, but I liked the idea. While I did the pictures my mood already became better and better and in the end I even had fun playing with one of the incredible mesh animals from Jian 🙂

Suppertime!

What happens if you have 3 different designs you want to showcase and you try to combine them – I love challenges like that :p

Today it was the new ears from CerberusXing called “Sceleratis Ears” – they are available at the TMD event for August – an add-on for those ears from Nefekalum Tattoos and that cool tongue from unstable.I didn’t yet wanna give up on my new scars from E.A.Studio either, so that was quite a fun challenge to make that all work together. In the middle of the night – my brain must have been already fried and  I was hungry – all of a sudden the idea for this picture grew in mind… so yes… here we go!

Girls just wanna have Fun… even the crazy ones :p

TUNES

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells, “What you gonna do with your life?”
Oh daddy dear, you know you’re still number one
But girls, they wanna have fun
Oh girls just want to have

[Cyndi Lauper]

Finally I have Summer Holidays! 6 weeks of fun, being lazy or creative as I want, sleep when and as long as I want… just freedom all over!

Recently I met a cool girl in Second Life and while we were talking, I realized it is the creator of  [I♥F]&co. When I think back, she was one of the first.. if not THE first who did scripted clothing in terms of being removable/strip-able. It is a ton of work as we all know that clothing doesn’t move by itself naturally in Second Life so she has to make different meshes for all steps of  undressing! Soon I will do a longer post about that to showcase you the possibilities of that kind of clothing.

For today I chose one of my favorites from [I♥F] for my pictures – The “Ginger” outfit. A wonderful corset with pasties and a loose panty. The textures are incredible amazing, we all know latex is a very difficult fabric in SL ;). You get a glossy and a ‘normal’ option if you purchase the outfit, which gives you a wide range of possibilities to wear that amazing design. I chose the glossy version as it reacted so incredible to the lights and projectors I wanted to use.

First I thought about doing a fetish post, but then I thought that would be too obvious *winks*. So I decided to go with something different. I remembered the cool vending machine from Ex Machina, which instantly brought the memory of the “Clockwork Orange” movie to my mind. Having that crazy movie in mind it wasn’t had to come up with a crazy set and picture idea :p

Another thing I would like to point out is the amazing makeup from CAZIMI. I am addicted to my new Evolution heads from LeLUTKA (I can’t yet decide if I want to stay with Lake or to change again to Fleur) and CAZIMI does perfect HD appliers for the new LeLUTKA Evolution line AND super cool BoM layers as well. With those layers you can mix and  match your makeups again! For this post I did not just use one of her newest release – The “Starlet Lashes” Applier for Evolution heads – I as well mixed 2 of the “Cruel Summer Eyeshadows” to create a color that matched my tattoo! CAZIMI includes different opacities in some of her creations and that gives you such a wide range of possibilities to experiment for even more colors! Try for yourself and discover new way of putting your makeup together!

Selfie!

Lately real life is very time consuming – more than it used to be before Covid 19. As a musician and teacher you kinda double your hours with the same income than you had before. Classes need to be decreased to full fill the standard of hygienic behavior given by the state and online schooling takes ore time as well, as you need to learn all the new tools you need. It is ok, but with that SL time gets reduced a lot lately for me.

But all those amazing new releases – just dragged me to SL and I had to snap a quick picture to showcase at least a few of them today 😉 I am not a snapshot only person and so it as well takes time to post work the picture(s), which makes it not really more easy if you already are short on time… but times will bet better again, I am sure they will 🙂

At Night…

TUNES

Sunk deep in the night
I sink in the night
Standing alone underneath the sky
I feel the chill of ice
On my face
I watch the hours go by
The hours go by


You sleep
Sleep in a safe bed
Curled and protected
Protected from sight
Under a safe roof
Deep in your house
Unaware of the changes at night

At night
I hear the darkness breathe
I sense the quiet despair
Listen to the silence
At night
Someone has to be there
Someone has to be there

Someone must be there

Captured by my own Thoughts…

The past week was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. Life changed with the pandemic all over the world, I guess most of the people try to work with it as best as they can. For me personal, I am not suffering not too bad from quarantine and lock-down. I still get to teach 7/8 hours a days from Monday to Thursday – I am on of the lucky ones to have students who have/were given all the needed hardware to do online school with them. I just adjusted my work space/office to have a virtual classroom. I set up my camera and monitors to have one screen share for files and another as “chalkboard” where I can write on. That is working really fine for about 5 weeks now, even if I really miss seeing my students in person sometimes.

I followed the discussions about how to start school again with high interest, as according to all other news we are not yet over the pandemic problems since we have not yet any kind of vaccine. So we still have rules like limited contacts only, do not take your kids on your shopping tours and in some areas even the duty to wear masks while shopping or being on public transport vehicles. All over they tell us the self made masks won’t protect us from being infected and only safe the people around you in case you are infected and do not know. Reading all that I thought, they will keep school online for the rest of this school year to be honest, at least for those who have a good running system and perfect contact to their students. I was so wrong… They now force all exam classes back to school with no exception of having better alternatives or possibilities, which would limit the risk to get infected. So even if you have a good running online schooling, it doesn’t matter. If you have better ideas against the given “10 – 15 students in one little classroom”, for example use the gyms which is like 3 to 4 times bigger than a class room and you could keep the class together with 18 people and still have more space between them and as well the teacher… no exceptions allowed. When I read the reason for that “no exceptions” politics I was shocked. The reason would be to TEST how the numbers of infections change, if you put 10-15 people with the teacher in one tiny classroom… WTF?!? What is wrong with our society if we use kids and teachers as “guinea pigs” if we could have other solutions to keep them way more safe and healthy? I would not say a word, if that would be the only possibility to go back to a regular school schedule and if we already would have ways to really protect people like I already said for example vaccine, or at least protecting masks and what ever it needs! Our kids have their parents at home, sometimes even their grandparents. Some have parents, who suffer from all kind of heavy sicknesses or diseases! Just because the symptoms are not affecting the majority of kids that much, we just take the risk of making our kids sick on purpose and make them bringing it home to the rest of their family?!? I just do not see the pressure of having schools back up and having all grades right for the next certificate in only a few month by risking the health and maybe even the life of people or kids, especially if we could have all kind of work-arounds like home schooling or better protection if the classes have to be in presence of kids and teacher. I am not a paranoid person, I wasn’t panicking at all over all that past weeks, but the news of the past few days just totally did throw me off and beyond.

With all of that, I guess it again pulled out my darker side again for my pictures, but I do not mind that, since I do enjoy that side of mine too 😉
Lately I found a mega cool tattoo brand called Vegas Tattoo. They really do interesting and well drawn tattoos for an everyday look – if you love tattoos like me that would be 😉 Today I chose one of their latest releases for Spring Flair Event called “Welcoming Spring”. The tattoo covers all parts of the body, You have something on your front and back upper body, your arms and hands as well as down your right leg. What caught me the most is, that the seams are extremely well done. A nice little detail is the sweet butterfly at your left hip with all the more dark looking ornaments of the rest of the tattoo 😉
Certainly I had to complete my style with a lot of incredible, amazing CerberusXing designs – I can’t help it iam just a [CX] addicted *winks* Since I am in a way better mood now, after venting just a bit today in the beginning of my post, I will see with what I will come up next…
