River 2.0 joins the LeLUTKA Evolution Family!

Finally RL did set me free and I can show you that amazing new head from LeLUTKA! The whole week I was trying to finish the post and RL always interrupted me *frowns*

“River 2.0” is the latest addition for the LeLUTKA Evolution Family. It was released on the IBTC event this month. The head has the same amazing features as all the new Evolution heads have, PLUS it does allow a very awesome androgynous look. That is why LeLUTKA included male hairbases and beards for this head, what basically makes this the first “unisex” head for me. Depending on the shape and skin (for this post I used the original shape and skin, which come with the head) that you will use you can decide if you wan a more male or female look for your face.

On the same event, the new Maitreya “Flat Chest Add-on” was introduced… perfect for my androgyny look I was looking for! With that add-on you can just “overwrite” your female Maitreya “Lara” mesh body and have a flat  boy chest instead of your regular female one. It is really easy, as you only have to exchange your Maitreya HUD to the new Flat Chest one and add the flat chest add-on on top of your Maitreya body.

There will be soon more with that special combination of “River 2.0” and the new “Flat Chest Add-on” – I really like to play with that new and special look and gives me the possibility to wear some male clothing, too 😉

Out of my Head!!!

TUNES

I cannot breathe through toxic skies
You pollute me with your lies
Thought I died ‘long with my sense of time
And I’m not alright feel trapped in my mind
I can’t escape even if I tried
Too little too late too weak and too kind
My heart is on fire and I’m burnin’ alive
So I guess I’m not fine still trapped in my mind

[Adam Oh]

Sometimes you have so many things on your mind that give you more headaches than good that you would like to tear them out… do you know that feeling? At the moment I exactly feel like that. There is so much things in my head and some anxiety what the future will bring. Even in SL I had some things happen that really did trow me down. In the end SL isn’t in any ways different that RL even if you try to stay away from drama and negative things… people who want to drag you down, will have their stage to do so.

Anyways – that mood I was in, paired with the cool “Eye Spike” and the super cool “Broken Eyes from Madame Noir, todays  pictures came to life 😉 Now that I wrote about it and made those pictures I already feel better! I hope you had a wonderful day without any trolls or “brain refugees” trying to make it a bad one. I will now move on to some more pictures for my next post!

Candles raise my desire
Why I’m so far away
No more meaning to my life
No more reason to stay
Freezing feeling, breathe in, breathe in
I’m coming back again
Hazing clouds rain on my head
Empty thoughts fill my ears
Find my shade by the moon light
Why my thought aren’t so clear
Demons dreaming, breathe in, breathe in
I’m coming back again
I’m not the one who’s so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did want to be here again
And I don’t remember why I came

Sometimes one of your Dreams comes true…

Sometimes you dream of something for a long time and when you think not too much about it, it all of a sudden comes true!

As a blogger you have some personal goals and this year another one of my biggest ones came true. I am allowed to blog for Death Row Designs! I am a DRD addicted for years, probably since I started playing Second Life. I adore their buildings and landscaping parts as well as their clothing, accessories and shoes. My inventory still holds accessories and body parts from times before mesh did enter the grid and now with BoM some of them do work again! And certainly I do not want to bother you only with the old stuff – Today I have something brand new for you! The “Hellion Outfit”, released at The Warehouse Sale event. The outfit is made for Maitreya Lara,/Petite, Legacy and Legacy Perky , Freya and Hourglass mesh bodies. The pants have 4 colors to choose from and the top even have 7 different versions – if I may give a suggestion… just get the fatpack, it is so worth it and you do not have to decide!

To complete my first ‘official’ DRD look, I certainly had to dig in my DRD folder to find all the goodies, which I already own, like the “Sticker Stompers” and the super cool beer hat, which even is an actual group gift at the DRD main store.

The mega cool neck tattoo, which goes down from the back of the head, touches the chin and goes down the cleavage in a new release as well and was made by Eclipse Art studio for the Kinky event. Since we have BoM it is so cool that you can have seamless tattoos that go up to your head as well – I always loved the idea of that, when a tattoo not just stops at the neckline. Speaking already of new releases, we cannot forget the generous gift called “Take Over”, that Vegas Tattoo put out at UBER!

Most of the time I do make my own sets for my shoots, but this time I decided to just hop down on the sim, outside of our store, where I was allowed to create Bartertown, a neat little post apoc place. What could make a better scenery for such a cool casual look than something from DRD? I decorated Bartertown with a lot of DRD designs and the “Beer Stand – Collection” felt like the right choice. I am looking forward on my new adventure with the awesome and crazy DRD team – I can’t wait to see what will be their next release 😉

I guess I should refill my beer hat and go for some shopping for my next post 😉

It has so many great details amd the textures are just incredible amazing. You do not have to use the full set and can decorate something with all the single parts as well, but I just loved how the softlink version did look like. The pack contains 20 single parts and you can arrange them as you like as well if you do not want to use the pre-made linked version. I love that DRD always provides a soft-linked version for all their buildings and structures, which allows you still to re-arrange or you can built your own version with all the single parts.

Alone at Night…

And summer finally kicked in with all its damn heat… I hate it… I never liked summer but since the temperatures going up that high in Germany too it really sucks even more. I really cannot understand people who try to tell me, they start working way more effective and their brain brings peak performance is temperatures go over 86° Fahrenheit. My brain and body stops working when the thermometer reaches +68° Fahrenheit. What is nice when you just sit and do nothing and already sweat?!? Anyways… let’s take a look on todays pictures…

Today I have something really neat for you. I was aware that this does exist for years and saw it in action for a while, but I never tried myself – Premiere! I am talking about the ‘undress-me’ clothing from [I♥F]. I was mentioning already that I would like to showcase some of Aindara’s designs with that special feature 😉 I chose to start with an amazing combination of the “Leni” dress paired with the “Lina” bikini. Since I am not a huge summer and beach fan, I wanted to try something different and went for a more casual, urban style – kinda a Wicca Casual *winks*

So as you can see I tried to show at least 2 steps of the undress me possibility of the “Lina” set. But  let’s start from the beginning. The sheer “Leni” dress was made to be worn over the “Lina” bikini and it perfectly fits above that with every movement as you can see on the first picture. On the second picture I changed to step 2 of the “Lina” bra, which lets down the right side of the bra. Stage 3 would expose the whole chest and I was wearing that in picture 3, but I was too shy to push both of my boobies into your face and because the tattoo has such a great back… you can peek into the window as I tried to do a mirror effect very subtle *giggles*. Speaking of the tattoo… it is a new release from .:Vegas:., available at the Fetish Fair. I really love their tattoos, especially because you can choose different stages from light to dark and as well often you even have the choice of a colored or black & white version.

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!

Venomous Poison

TUNES

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I’m caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat
I hear you calling and it’s needles and pins
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don’t want to touch you but you’re under my skin
I wanna kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison

One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
I wanna love you but I better not touch
I wanna to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna to kiss you but I want it too much
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison

“Insufficient facts always invite danger.” – Mister Spock

“Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before”

[Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Star Treck: The Next Generation]

I was a Star Treck addicted since I saw the first episodes on TV back when I was a kid. I always was a little dreamer and the idea of having worlds out of reach, that no one yet had explored and either Captain Kirk or Captain Jean-Luc Picard just took us on their journeys to do exactly that, was just amazing. How often we sat, with the family or with friends, together in front of the TV and watched with excitement, what they would find and if it would be good or bad. For my age it first was Captain Jean-Luc Picard. I was about 10 years old when the first season came out on TV and when my mom realized I do love the whole story, she introduced me to the “older Star Treck” episodes with Captain Kirk and Mister Spock. Even if Jean-Luc will be my all time favorite, I did enjoy the older ones too, especially Mister Spock. The idea of having a life with no emotions, can be attractive if you are a very emotional kid and run into problems all the time*snickers*

That addiction to unknown space and fantasy stories did never go away… it did even grow over the time. Nowadays I still love Star Treck but as well all kind of post apocalyptic movies like Resident Evil, Mad Max, Book of Eli and many more. Fantasy or Sci-Fi as well is a genre that I do love a lot. The idea of machines that get some kind of personality like I Robot, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Minority Report or Ex Machina as well are an amazing yet dangerous idea… if artificial intelligences decide, that humans are the major problem in the the end – I would not wanna be part of that. What was an interesting movie as well and maybe a future vision of Second Life, was Surrogates. A world, where people never leave home again and just operate machines to do their jobs. When I saw the movie first, I thought it would be a cool idea, but the more I was thinking about that it was a scaring vision to me. I do have a love for such fictions and I am sure a few were part of what inspired me for todays post.

When I saw the “Space 2099” gacha set from Salt & Pepper, I instantly felt the 60s/70s, retro mood of the old Start Trek series. Then I saw, that Ex Machina made a matching scenery to exactly that gacha, there was no way that I would not blog that amazing collaboration. 2 of my favorite designers, collaborating on a sci-fi inspired set – priceless!

The gacha set from Salt & Pepper contains a body, shoes with long leg parts, sleeves and 2 different interactive tools that cooperate with the clothing AND with the matching props and skyebox from Ex Machina!!! While you can have 5 different colors for the clothing you get 3 options of guns. each gun shoots a different color (slime, hexagon glitter, holo swirls), while you can remove all the splashes with the scanner, which as well is part of the gacha. Sadly I found no other person, as I first had the idea of having a pixel fight with someone and colored slime splashes all over, but then I came on a different idea anyways. Maybe I will do some fun with that interactive gacha in the future ;). The VIP prize, a visor with a color HUD to match the clothing colors. The matching gacha from Ex Machina, as well called “Space 2099”, contains various props, a modular tunnel system and a skybox as rare.

For todays post I used the 2 gachas, but as well some other matching designs from Ex Machina. Hatris Panacek recently released some amazing sci-fi items that just were perfect to furnish the skybox. I first made one level with the modular tunnel system and all the gacha props. When I rezzed the skybox, I immediately had the idea of having a laboratory inside of it as a second level of my interstellar home *grins*. Who does not dream of a separated work/life balance *winks*

When I was done and satisfied with the look (I will credit all parts properly in the end of this post) I again came back on my initial idea of foreign spaces and forms of life. That brought up the neat idea with the little dragon , that just was born in my laboratory. First it looked super cute and then it did demonstrate it’s power and I had to run :p

I do love to tell little stories with my pictures and with that amount of items I wanted to showcase, it had to be a few more pictures than usual, but they all went so well together that I did not want to part them for a post.

Again I used the Axis HUD from LeLutka to animate my face. I know there is various face expressions out there at the moment, but I still think, that LeLutka had the most genius idea with that animation HUD. I already did talk about my first steps and tries wit the Axis HUD (HERE), but I seriously cannot stop to tell how amazing that HUD is. you can make expressions completely personalized and to exact purpose you need it. Sometimes I even modify existing expressions (certainly I mostly use the awesome, pre-made expressions from LeLutka as well), if I just want a little tweak and like the general attitude of the expression. If you not yet tried it, you really should. There is as well a demo HUD available where you can test the way how it works at the LeLutka main store.First I wanted to include a gyazo of my LeLutka HUD in action, with all the worked bones, but  with all my excitement about taking pictures… I again forgot to do that. I will try to remember that for the net time, when I have it excessively in use 😉

From little Seeds great Flowers grow…

“She limped, unaided around the house, like a bird with its wing broken. Tame, because it couldn’t fly away. All her time was taken up with managing herself, working out new ways to do things. Being a different person in the world.”
[ Joan London, The Golden Age ]

I guess I never had  more opposite posts back to back  than the last and today’s… maybe thats because my life at the moment is a little bit upside down and huge changes are about to come. I do have mixed feelings about it, as I did not really plan those, but sometimes you just get forced to make changes and you have to adapt the situation and make the best out of it for yourself.

But then, like I wrote yesterday… I always wanted the freedom to do what ever I want on my personal blog and so I hope you all don’t mind a black/silver against white/gold contrast 😉

It was always something I thought a lot about. When I started modeling, we were taught, that we should find our personal style. Back then it was like either you are a casual person, a formal one, am avant garde one or one of those kind of styles that we all know. I never felt ‘home’ in one style genre only and so I started to call my personal style weird or crazy to at least have category if I was asked about. I do not know where all that comes from, but it is not only happening in Second Life. In real life I am a musician, but as well a teacher and I do give private lessons for instruments and songwriting and I do work for a record studio playing the bass sometimes, too. I never had the desire to have a nine-to-five job, more than that I even was scared about the thought to have to do the same every day in a certain time frame. Certainly it would be easier and you could plan your free-time better, but I guess I would miss something just having one job.

It isn’t the first time that a chapter of the book of my life closes (sometimes I had to close them my self, too) and so I know if one closes another one will open. Just the time until that happens is sometimes a bit scary, as you never know what it will be. Usually those kind of “in-between” times only happen if you didn’t close the chapter yourself. Mostly they do happen, if you didn’t plan any changes and all of a sudden for no reason others decide to screw you over with lies and gossips that aren’t even true. First I tried to fight against that, but if you have 4 people gained up against you they can pretty much tell everything and being their own witnesses for their lies. First it dragged me down a lot and I was trying to find a way how I still could prove the truth, but the longer it did happen, the more I came to the point that it would be senseless. So I had to change my tactics and just make my peace with it and find new ways for myself. It would have been an unnecessary waste of power and time to keep on fighting in the end.

So I am looking forward to what will come. Things have come up to my mind already and now just need to grow and being developed more. That already feels much better than the time of uncertainty, where you have no clue what you are going to. Maybe that’s why I found parts of my creativity back, too and have fun taking pictures again even if they are a little bit weird *winks*

For now I will be on holidays and try to get some rest from all the past half a year crap. I know things will move on, as they always have and every time it happened, there was something new for  me that I really enjoyed. Even if that sounds old and lame sometimes and in the middle of frustrating and depressing times you neither want to hear or see it – Life has so much to give and there always will be ways to find new perspectives. Recently I found a quote, first I read it was from Sigmund Freud, but when I looked it up, there wasn’t any prove for that and no one really knows where it came from, but it does fit so perfectly for now and I like it a lot. I even thought, if I should put it on a sign and place it at my desktop somewhere, so I can look at it if I get bad feelings about the whole situation again. Maybe it makes a great closing sentence for today’s post *grins*
