Wicca’s Wardrobe @ The Dark Style Fair 2017

This round of The Dark Style Fair is appropriately themed “Day of the Dead.”
For this special occasion we have created a 100% original mesh ensemble we call Catrina. It is a coat/dress combination that can be worn independent of one another. Of course we have an amazing HUD that gives you many options for textures as well as metals. Catrina is a versatile outfit that can work together or separately in a number of different genre stylings such as, Victorian or Steampunk. Catrina fits Maitreya’s Lara as well as Slink’s Physique and Hourglass.

Enoying my first few days of my Vacation with [sys] ;)

sys 4

Finally my summer holidays are here – YEAH! Yes, teachers desire vacation as much as students *grins*

6 weeks of mot getting up to early and living my true nature as a night owl again :p

It really does feel nice, if you actually can spend time and just roam around instead of just having 2 to 3 hours to create and work in SecondLife. First I started to unpack a lot of boxes, which came too short over the past few weeks because of the final exams at school and all the events that come for the end of year of school.Β  My first box already had something very cool in it… the new “Ride” outfit from [sys]. The whole outfit contains a bra, shirt, shorts and a wrapped shirt around your waist. There are different color combinations available but each one comes with a HUD to customize it a little more. You get 2 options per HUD for each part.

While I was opening all those boxes that got to me over the last couple of weeks I found one goodie after another, what means, there will be a lot of posts over the next few days o guess ;). Another amazing item, which perfectly matched the “Ride” outfit from [sys.], was the “Equals” tattoo from White Widow. That awesome art piece covers the arms all the way down with flowers in wonderful shadings. Now certainly I needed some cool glasses, which I found at Haysuriza – A place I really love to go if I need some cool, more urban casual looking glasses ;).

The totally awesome hair I am using, certainly comes from one of my favourite hair designers in SL… EMO-tions πŸ˜‰ The “Bernadette” hair does have the perfect touch of smart, urban and casual as well as a lightly rebel look, that I love so much for my more private and urban looking looks πŸ™‚ And now for the jewelry… I know Pris will kill me again – like she always does if I am wearing something “old” that might be not any longer available – but old does not automatically mean bad in my opinion. Sometimes, designs, creations or items do never get old. The look and the skills used to handcrafted them can make them long time goodies. Certainly sometimes weird moving flexies from 2008 might appear old but as well if you take a look at the nowadays designers who use flexible prims again to mix them with new mesh creations… they change in their look and as well improved in their movements. Sometimes it has even a huge plus and adds some kind of uniqueness if you use some of your long time favorites, as they just might add the little extra on your look. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying keep all your old items… but sometimes a few are worth it πŸ˜‰

Saying that, my jewelry for today comes from YS&YS and has quite some years on it’s back in my inventory πŸ˜‰ The “NEW Silver” set with a part flexible earing and the wonderful necklace just made the perfect addition for the look.

In the end I really do believe in a good mixture of new and older items to finalize a look. sometimes those old items even bring back some great memories to a show yu walked, a shooting you had or even from who you got them. With all our run on new releases, do not forget about some things, that might appear old on the first view.. on a second view they can quiet be nice *winks*

Head Up Guys…Attention*drumroll*… New Male Suit at R:A:D!!!

Attention guys..lately I catched Redclaw Inshan, designer of R:A:D – Red Alert Design, wearing his newest creation.. and for sure I had to snap it πŸ˜‰ we ladies always want you guys dressed fashionable πŸ˜‰ so take a look at the new R:A:D “Dragon Suit”!

The “Red Dragon” is an amazing black suit with red asian ornaments that break the basic black texture in a fantastic way. No more boring black suits for the fashion loving guy πŸ˜‰ With this suit you definatly will turn heads and show character! The suit basically is made of pants, shirt, waistcoat and jacket… and now…also the shoes are included! If you take a closer look you can see the brilliant texture with the great folds that really give this suit a very realistic look. Not only made with a plain black texture, the lights and shadows are perfect set! It really seems the texture fits every movement and pose… simply awesome!

Lets get rid of the jacket to see the great waistcoat πŸ˜‰ Made with an amazing detailed texture lightly asian looking, this vest really caught my eye. Like a trade mark for the suit every part of the outfit has one asian ornament on it as we can see here on the left side of the chest in black. The tiger and dragon ornament really makes a great eye catcher on the waist coat.

If you take off the waistcoat… and take a closer look you will see that also the shirt carries different asian ornaments on the chest and the back. If you take a very close look you also can see how filigree the label is embed into the ornament itself πŸ™‚ The shirt also is made with an amazing texture that shows the folds very detailed and perfectly. The light pine-stripes that decorate the short again show the eye for the detail ofΒ  the designer Redclaw Inshan. What caught me here, was the neck collar.. usually I know the conventional one..but this one is different.. and as you know I like the “different things” *winks*.Β  The collar is very cool surrounding the neck fully closed with a little button on the font that continues the button line of the shirt itself :)… the eye for the detail makes the good designs πŸ˜‰ The pants also carry an asian sign to underline the style of the whole suit ;), so the asian signs go over all parts like a red line πŸ˜‰

Nearly not to believe even the shoes are part of that great outfit and matching every color the suit comes with! Also decorated with an asian ornament on the top of the shoe this shoes are a totally eye catcher too! For sure the belt that you can see on the next picture also is included to the outfit πŸ˜‰

For now I saw 3 different colors, the “Red Dragon”, the “Purple Dragon” and the “Silver Dragon”… but I am sure if you really need or want another color… you can contact the designer and see if you can make a good deal for another color as well πŸ˜‰

All parts of the outfit comes in all layers you need to mix and match every possibility!!!

Overall I would take such a sharp dressed man for a night out with me πŸ˜‰ If you wanna see all the other great designs made by R:A:D simply take the TAXI (or click HERE http://slurl.com/secondlife/LM%20Maldives/56/198/22) and take a look by yourself..you will see it is worth it πŸ˜‰
