The Crow and the Raven
A CROW was jealous of the Raven, because he was considered a bird
of good omen and always attracted the attention of men, who noted
by his flight the good or evil course of future events. Seeing
some travelers approaching, the Crow flew up into a tree, and
perching herself on one of the branches, cawed as loudly as she
could. The travelers turned towards the sound and wondered what
it foreboded, when one of them said to his companion, “Let us
proceed on our journey, my friend, for it is only the caw of a
crow, and her cry, you know, is no omen.”
Those who assume a character which does not belong to them, only
make themselves ridiculous.

Today I have something very special for you…
Yesterday I got an outfit from the October’s Trending Fashion Chamber, from October Bettencourt, owner and designer of Captive Designs. The outfit is called “Snakeskin Jumper”, made in brown and green tones. As I put it on and looked at it for a while, I thought that many people will style it just like a casual outfit and I wanted to try something different… And for some strange reason suddenly a steam punk fairy came into my mind… I know that this 2 words usually do not go together well but … it got stuck in my mind. The “Snakeskin Jumper” comes with mesh pants, a short layer and the awesome huge neck collar. I only added a fishnet bolero… or that what was left from it*grins* and those wonderful steam punk wings of the “Fallen Aviator” outfit from E-Clipse.
The hair is one of the latest releases from Element’ Hair with the name “Camille” and the “Elise” ankle boots are from L&B. To make the steam punk feeling perfect I used the “Guildio” glasses from Crie Style.
While I was styling, I was talking to Malicia Python, owner nd designer of Silken Moon, on Skype. She is working on a special custom skin for me and she TPed over to my home to show me what she did new. While we were talking, I was arranging the scene and had pulled out the swing that I found longer ago and never used before. I was sitting on it and had still a white background and no idea for a picture yet. Suddenly Malicia said why not something fantasy? And we started to search for backgrounds. She showed a super nice one. I loaded it up to second life and she surprised me again with a curved background prim to have more depth in my pic. While I was snapping and crashing because of the shadows all the time I told her, how much I would like to learn more about PS and about some tricks and tips and I showed hr some pictures I really like. As she would talk about the weather, she suddenly started explaining to me, what I could do and try to make my pics more unique and more customized. She told me about features of PS I never heard of before and for me it was like … I do not know how to put it, it was kinda like a little child that left the house for the first time… there are so many possibilities and tricks… before I realized it was 4AM in the morning… I went to bed. The next morning I could not wait to sit in front of my PC and try what I learned the night before and after some hours… after I thought it was finished I could not wait to show it to Malicia and show her what I did with her advises… The results you can see in the 2 pictures of this post *smiles super happy*
Then she suddenly came up with a sweet short novel for this pics and style and that I will not hide from you!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for teaching, helping and making such a nice story for the blog Malicia :)!
The Water Fairy that wanted to Fly
ONCE upon a time there was a water fairy, she loved her fellow water beings, but what she loved most was the birds that flew over the lake. She sighed and said „I wish I could fly, too“ A water spirit heard her and felt like her longing would make her an easy prey. He told her he could give her wings, but this would have a price she must be really willing to pay.
The Fairy did not hesitate one moment. She followed the water spirit to his cave where he plucked her left eye out and put it into his own socket. The poor fairy was in pain, not only her missing eye hurt badly also her back felt like it was going to break. And even worse: as her wings grew, she could not breathe under water anymore. She swam up to the surface and gasped for air. The water spirit followed her and cackled as he saw her cry, because she realized her silly wish had banned her from home forever. As she wished for something that was not her nature.
And even today, when you come to the lake by moonlight, you sometimes see the fairy staring into the lake, where she could see her loved ones with her eye that was left with the water spirit.
