Xplosion – young, modern, urban, smart!

Today I have the great pleasure to show some of the great designs and the latest release from Xplosion. Owner and designer Kaliha Noel increased her label over the past years to an awesome ‘imperium’. I had the great honor to meet her ages ago, shortly after she started and to see this amazing brand growing over the time was really amazing. So it is for me a special thing to have her designs on my blog πŸ™‚

First I would like to start with one outfit I was allowed to model for the Glance Magazin a few month ago. I chose The “Woman Overall Break” pants. As a basic. The awesome used look was perfect for the styling I wanted to do. The loose strap on the left shoulder that let hang down the left front of the overall pants give a wonderful casual look. A perfect addition is the black “Hoodie” shirt. I just skipped the hood itself and used it as a zipper sweater only πŸ˜‰ Also the cool “Ladie Cat” shoes are from Xplosion. Neat little heels covered by great urban huge leg warmers are the best decision for the actual season also πŸ˜‰

Again I have to thank Harsch Sharktooth, who helped me and modeled for the male part πŸ™‚ He is wearing the “Chill Jeans” in light blue. This jeans also have that cool holes that make the basic for the urban-used look. For the top Harsch chose the hoodie and the gloves from the “Men Overall Break” pants outfit. For the actual season he decided to wear the “KBoots” not to get wet feet in those rainy days.

For the absolute highlight Kaliha gave me one of her newest skinst to test and they are simply amazing! I did not have to change anything… it just fitted perfect on my shape. As always the skin comes in different tones and with different colors of lipstick.

Also every lipstick color has 2 versions of eye makeup, one with just smokey eyes and one that is mixed with the color of the lipstick lightly, too! The body is awesome details and every light and shadow is in its place…not toomuch and not too less, just perfect. Also the skin does not have this ugly over glow, it looks lightly powdered and perfect for the everyday look of every fashionista. The face has stunning and great eyes and wonderful sexy and full lips with a very light gloss also perfect designed to give a natural but fashion look. The belly and back look very well-trained and shaped. For me “Nicki” is a wonderful and very realistic looking skin with all kind of perfect features you can have. If you take a closer look you can see that amazing hairbase and hair attachment. This was also one of the latest releases of Xplosion and it is called “Lyra”. You can purchase it in black, brown, blonde, red , silver and white always with the matching hairbase.

You definitely should make your way to the Xplosion Mainstore and see all of Kaliha Noel’s great designs and creations. You also will find a cute discount area where you can find some of the older creations as a give away or even very much discounted… I have to admit I nearly got them all πŸ˜‰

Shoe Mania at Mea Culpa – Part II!!!

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Matrix”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

As I promised… here is the second part of the last Mea Culpa shoe mania! Tatanka Kaligawa increased our ladies shoe paradise with new designs and ideas all around our feet πŸ˜‰

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Matrix”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The “Matrix” shoes captivate with their great and unusual heels. High heels with an amazing metal part that connects the heel to the sole. The basic shoe is made with a simple but amazing detailed texture and neat details. Wonderful sculpted toes with colorable nails in every color with the HUD that comes with, tiny little lines that connect the 2 big fabric parts that cover the foot with that amazing folds that make the whole shoe very realistic. You can change the main color to all colors you want with the big color matching field as well as you can match the skin of the foot itself to match yours.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Overdose”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Elegant and extravagant? No problem with the “Overdose” shoes. Very filigree the mixture of lace and opaque texture goes over the whole foot. Sweet little accessories with a sharp character decorate the “little blacks” in an extraordinary way. If you want a special pair of shoes for your little black dress… the “Overdose” heels of Mea Culpa are the right choice.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Darkness”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Or you go for the “Darkness” ones. Also great for every outfit but maybe a little bit more ‘sexy’ as the “Overdose”. The “Darkness” heels have a more opaque character and the shining black texture surrounds nearly the whole feet, just toes and back feet are free for the typical sexy high heel look. The white ornaments give an awesome touch to the whole design.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Zen”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Now we step on the asia path with the “Zen” shoes. The sweet golden dragon on the wooden heels give a cute basic for the perfect asian look. The ornaments on the fabric add even more asian feeling.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Zen”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

With the HUD you can match your skin, and color the nails in all colors you can think on with the big color field. Also the HUD has 5 pre-made colors for the basic texture as you can see in the pics above.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Vamp”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

“Vamp” is the playful one in this post. Fully made of lace you feet are totally covered except the toes and the back feet.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Vamp”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Little silver ornaments decorate the shoes at the ankle and the sides. The heel itself has an amazing texture too. Another silver line that goes left and right down the feet. The main color can be changed with the usual color field of the HUD as well as the toe nails.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Joker”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The last pair for today are the “Joker” ones. The main color is always parted in white and one of the 6 colors (black, red, blue, green, purple, gold & grey)

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Joker”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

A very cool feature you have on the back of the heel… the line that goes down the heel can be colored in every color you can think with the HUD as well as the nails and the skin.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Joker”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

There we are at the end of the second part of the latest shoe mania of Mea Culpa… but I already heared Tatanka talk about new shoe designs… so stay tuned πŸ˜‰

We all know Julie Hastings and her great new face tattoos… but there is another genius owner of White WidowStan Jigsaw, genius partner of the incredible Julie Hastings πŸ˜‰ This both together basically run White Widow. Todays post are about the hairbases done by Stan Jigsaw and the fact that these are not only for males πŸ˜‰

I really fell in love with that amazing unusual hairbases. The were basically made for males, but who knows me… that cannot hold me from testing πŸ˜‰

As a brave female you even can wear it without any hair and just show off character, but also as you can see in the first pics you can add hair attachments also…

The bases are available in 5 different colors (red, white, black, brown and chestnut) and the fatpack No#2 contains 6 different styles (Litmus, Mist, See, Swirl, Tecoma and Twig). In the 3 detail pics I got help by Harsch Sharktooth that shows the bases in black and myself the chestnut version. Thanks a lot Harsch for being patient and giving me that much of your time to snap!

To show the full ornaments we just snapped every style and color once from the back so that you get an idea what they look like in total. But as I said I hope that could show that this great and incredible hairbases are not only for males;) Ladies..dare to be brave πŸ˜‰

New fantastic hair attachments at Baiastice!!!

Sissy Pessoa did it again!!! She designed 12 incredible new hair attachments. I am very happy to be allowed that I am able to show you all of them. for sure they come in the well-known colors and all shades as usual even if I only have the black version for this blog post only πŸ˜‰

“Michelle” , a wonderful and smart “up do” for the fresh and modern fashionista. The sweet wisps fly around everywhere as they are not really willing to behave. “Invasion” is a wonderful short hair cut for showing off your rebel attitude;)Β  “Fiamma” looks like the big sister of “Michelle” and even a bit more bad girl with the wild wisps that stick in the air like flames that raise in the air! “Fedora” is the good girl one of that 4… πŸ˜‰ An unsymmetrical hairstyle that has the dominant side at the left. “Fedora is perfect for a wonderful evening gown but not boring with the extravagant shape.

“Mylla” is the perfect style for a rocker lady πŸ˜‰ Sorry that was to tempting πŸ˜‰ It is for sure not only for them. It has a free forehead and is put together very high on the had falling down your neck over your shoulder. “Sukiu” I would put as the most avantgarde style for this 4. Very straight and very clear you can wear it for couture outfits but also for an elegant ball gown πŸ˜‰ “Meda” I like to wear with my couture outfits. Also straight and clean but with a wonderful non usual shape;) “Siville” again shows a bit more attitude again as there are some bad wisps on each side for this up do.

“Irene” is one of my actual favourites.. πŸ˜‰ I so love that cool look with the sideward cap and the sweet wisps that peek out on each side..simply fantastic. “Pistols” is definitive the wildest haircut and it is a bit more the ‘only’ an attachment as it covers most of the head also. “Shilova” is a long hairstyle again. The sweet tail is parted in 2 parts at the back of the head and moves wonderful flexible behind you. Wanna do some sports? The “Tennis” is the right hairstyle for you. The cool cap is part of that hair!

You really should make your way to the Baiastice Mainstore and see wich one and wich color is yours πŸ˜‰ I do not wanna miss one of them πŸ˜‰

I so was feeling the neat bad girl that I really enjoyed this last pic a lot… even if I took of the cigarette because of the smoke;)Β  The great shirt is from R:A:D and I really fell in love with. It is not the only one made by Redclaw Inshan πŸ™‚

New hair attachments by PurpleMoon!!!

PurpleMoon lately released fantastic hair attachments with the perfect matching hair bases, like we can see on the first pic. But lets take a closer look at the outfit, also one of the latest releases of PurpleMoon – “Gator”

A beautiful, extravagant outfit that can be worn with long or a short skirt. This first picture shows the long skirt version. Also you can choose between the huge neck collar or just that lovely necklace. The great necklace is also part of the whole outfit. The top is armless and has an amazing deep neckline that shows of the wonderful well-shaped cleavage. The skirt starts with an opaque part and goes down becoming more and more transparent.

‘The short version has the same great attributes as the long one, just the skirt ends after the awesome opaque part. The textures are amazingly detailed and in the front of the top you can see a sweet detailed zipper that decorates the top from the beginning, down to the belly. The great hair that I am wearing for this outfit is called “Era” and it is one of the new fantastic hair attachments of PurpleMoon. Poulet Koenkamp also created to every color the matching hair base what skips a lot of trouble finding the right color for the hair itself!

The hair attachments are available in 20 (!!!) different colors with 20 (!!!) hair bases also. Unbelievable but true! To cover all the wonderful colors I gave for every hairstyle a few colors naming them on the picture. “Era” is an avantgardistic hairstyle that totally turns head with its extraordinary shape.

“Cat” is a great non usual updo, that again shows off the great designer skills and ideas of Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon. A sweet unusual knot at the back of the head carries a little neat curved ponytail.

For the ones that like the longer hairstyles more PurpleMoon offers the “Mia” ponytail. A long ponytail that amazingly flexible moves with every step you take, hold by a sweet little knot at the back of your head.

A very smart and neat hairstyle you can have with the “Sun” hair attachment. 2 rows of circled hair behind each other. The second row shows of neat wisps and leads over to the tiny ponytail in the back.

Last but not least we have a wonderful elegant up do with “Ana”. Ana is a perfect addition to every ballgown or dress and it adds automatically the sophisticated and elegant note! This hairstyles are a totally must have for the modern and style loving fashionista. With all the colors I am sure you will find the perfect one for you anyways wich hairstyle πŸ˜‰ The new hair is available in different color packs like “Blondes”, “Reds”, “Brunettes” and “Black & White” with five shades in each of them. Also, a fatpack with the 20 shades is available as well. All the packs include the matching hairbases. Keep in mind, that these tattoo layers will work on SL viewer 2 and compatible viewers.
