“I didn’t want to become human…”

“We weep for the blood of a bird, but not for the blood of a fish. Blessed are those with a voice. If the dolls could speak, no doubt they’d scream, “I didn’t want to become human.”

“In this Paradise you’ll find just what your looking for…”

TUNES

I could take your breath away,
I could make this feel so right
Out of the blackest shadows
Into your burning light
Your touch would enthrall my heart,
My touch could release your soul
Lying warm and dark in your arms,
Come close to me now and take control
Riding through endless nights,
Bury the nameless dead
The stars will rain down in the night
Cast out of Heaven by jealous angels of death
Together we’ll rule our world
Together we’ll rule theirs too

Lightning and thunder collide
At the edge of the world for me and you
In this Paradise you’ll find just what your looking for,
Beauty right before you eyes,
How could you ask for more?
Here behind these eyes,
Here inside my soul
Hear the screams of a crucifixion ring through the dark,
Ring through the cold
Reach up and pull me down
Into your hallowed ground
I’ll lead you into temptation,
Buried in passion I’ll lead you down…

Steampunk Heart

TUNES

Clockwork ticker, beating pulse
It lives and loves on wild impulse
Shiver and shake like feverish imps
If you look inside and take a glimpse
Romanticism is just an illusion
To a heart that beats confusion
Mechanical wonder but oh, so cold
The wheels and cogs in brass and gold
Manipulate the ghost in the machine
Ignored and loathed like something obscene
Tarnished and tattered by time and misuse
A strange device suffered decades of abuse
Mechanical lungs, screwed in ribs like art
All of them hiding my Steampunk hear

It’s not that bad, my dear…

TUNES

You’ve kept a little secret
Deep in your soul for all those years
But I can see into your soul

You think it’s a bad, bad secret
But it’s not that bad, my dear
It’s not that bad, my dear

I also hide a secret deep in my soul
And it’s a sad, sad feeling
But I can’t tell the truth to anyone

From a dear friend of mine I got that stunning “Kuroi Namida” dress – I really fell in love with that, thank you so much Shena. Now those of you who know me will ask if I am alright as I usually never like dresses too much, but this dress is a very special one. It has a wonderful corset and a short skirt which is covered by a long non symmetric second skirt part which goes down on the outside of the left leg. You have the choice of a full black version, or a black dress with colored accents like the one I am wearing today in red, at the actual round of NEO Japan. There I found that super-cool tattoo from Vegas Tattoo called “Akkorokamui” as well. I will have another post showcasing the neck part more in one of my nest posts, but it matched so amazing with the open cleavage part of the dress and the detail you can have on your face with the tattoo just finished the style in such a cool way ;). You get 3 different version of the tattoo if u decide to purchase it, where you have the choice of how much of the tattoo you would like to wear.

The holidays I desired so much seem to slowly do their thing as I am full of new ideas again and already think about my next post while I write this one, plus I found some more cool stuff on the NEO Japan event as well, which I want to showcase before the event is over *giggles*

Going to Hell

TUNES

Father did you miss me,
Been locked up a while.
I got caught for what I did but took it all in style.
Laid to rest all my confessions I gave way back when.
Now I’m versed in so much worse,
So I am back again, …

[- Pretty Wreckless -]

Sometimes you meet people and after a short while you get the feeling you know them since forever…

While I was styling I showed the style to Vivien and she seemed to like it so I asked her if she would not want do join in the picture. In seconds she had a matching style and we started to have fun quite a while. I already had done my pose and it was awesome to see how fast she arranged herself around and between me to make her fit into the scene. I anyway love her creativity when it comes to making poses. My head is always so stuffed, that I rarely be able to really make my own poses. But since I saw her working, Í found my way slowly back into that, too – and I really enjoy it again – nevertheless I always love when Vivian does her magic and so for the closeup I again could not resist to ask her, if she would like to make a pose again and she did another kick ass, cool one 😉

I have a feeling that won’t be our last collaboration, since we seem a pretty productive and creative team for that – plus, I hae to admit I immensely enjoy the time working with her. We have so much fun and it is a complete different journey that just doing pictures on my own. It does trigger other parts of my creativity and it as well challenges me to break my usual Photoshop routine, having a second person with a complete different skin and shape as my normal workflow and techniques apply differently on her avatar 🙂

Travelling through the Pages of Time

TUNES

Several hundred years before
A gambler and a monk embarked
On a long trek through the endless prairies of the North
They had a fierce debate
About God and chance and fate
And to resolve it, agreed a game of cards indeed be played
The game went on all day
And through the next and next they played
And around them a shelter was built to shield the rain
A street around the shelter formed
Then a church, a house, a bar
New Albion today
With bustling streets, machines, cafes
And the nice, the wise, the eccentric and insane
The mafia’s run by
A red haired dwarf with just one eye
Whose affairs he decides with a pair of silver dice
Over the Zeppelin Union Pilots
A castrati boss presides
And we hear his song each afternoon as he flies by
There’s prisons made of lead
And gargoyles of iron shreds

Thought Contagion

TUNES

Strung out, falling from the big time
Welcome to the infinite black skies
Brain cleansed, fractured identity
Fragments and scattered debris

Fall down, learn when to count it out
Prop me up before I blackout
Withdraw before you’re out of time
Clean slate and buried war crimes


You’ve been bitten by
A true believer
You’ve been bitten by
Someone who’s hungrier than you
You’ve been bitten by
A true believer
You’ve been bitten by
Someone’s false beliefs
