Today I had a very sentimental mood and that’s kinda the reason for those style of pictures for some news of EMO-tions, (AD) Creations and SoliDea FoliEs.
Lately I have a lot of those moments when you think back to the good old times when you started something. In this case it was a meeting with a dear old friend who started modeling with me and retired some time ago now. It was a very nice talk and not just whining about the good old times but we came across that there really are changes from back then to today – good and bad ones. One of the good ones is that nowadays the avatar really looks very nice with all the mesh, sculpties and what not parts you have for the body and as well for the clothing and hair. Wicca was born like a cybergoth with system hair and flexi prims were the top-notch as they were super new*snickers* I remember very well how long I had to wait until I got my first flexi hair from Gurl6 and my first skin from Nominee. Back then 75 L$ for hair and 250 L$ for a skin was a fortune for me. Usually you got your money from the camping chairs wich gave you like 2 to 5 L$ for a hour or from those funny money trees that gave you a linden here and there in a random time :p . We had to wear face lights to be seen on dark runways as there was no windlight at all and it was kinda as a revolution when Maitreya released their first animated poses wich moved from one pose to the other for runway modeling… yes we all had them and you saw the same 5 poses from nearly everyone 😉
But enough reminiscing about good old times… because there are som many amazing news in the here and now.
The wonderful bacl dress are one of the newest releases from SoliDea FoliEs, called “Giz/Total Black” The dress comes in 2 parts , the top and the skirt wich as well can be worn single for mix and match purposes. The wonderful huge flower head part a well is part of the outfit. In the mirror you can see the sweet little flower, that holds together the belt at the backside of the dress.
For the hair I used the “Antoinette” from EMO-tions. A wonderful baroque hairstyle that went so amazing with the idea of my good old times rant 😉 . Together with the hair, the idea of the mirror and the chair came up to complete the vision of a baroque look 😉
The eye decor with all the incredible details was made by Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] Creations. The whole “Chain Make-Up” set comes with a wonderful tattoo layer for the makeup and the ‘tear-washed-down mascara’, plus an attachment with the sweet little heart-shaped gems under the eye and the inner eye corner.
For the jewelry I again chose EMO-tions, the “Dragon Heart” set. This amazing ensemble with gems and the little dragons framed in noble silver metal was the perfect finish for today’s look.
