Finesmith opens a new era of jewelry and accessories!

Yula Finesmith dared something new for the idea of jewelry and accessories. The new “FlaSH” line that she created goes a very new and yet seen way. Usually if you have jewelry it is made to look most realistic. Yula Finesmith follows the possibilities you have in Second Life to attach prims where ever you like. In RL you need a piercer to have jewelry attached to your body like earrings or belly rings..not all parts of the body are made for such ;). In SL you can attach prims where ever you want and follow your creativity and ideas like you want… you just have to dare! This can be the great start or an amazing fashion trend… you just have to find out if you like it… I LOVE IT!!!

First lets take a look at the new “Acupuncture” Set of Finesmith. You have no chains and no little wholes in your ears where the jewelry is connected to. Just long acupuncture needles that hold  noble metal frames with amazing black gems in it! The needles just stick in the side of your head or the velvet flesh of your chest… the thought maybe painful but the look is awesome!

The second set our of this new “FlaSH” collection is called “Victorian Secret”. There you have huge tubes that are simply plugged in your ears and carry amazing tear drops that hanging down on long filigree lines. Little copper spherules decorate the basic silver-white set perfect. The ‘necklace’ if you can call it like that is also just a huge tube that carries also this incredible looking teardrop. On the top part you have also those filigree lines that go to every side carrying those tear drops decorated again with the little copper spherules. There the term “Who wants to be pretty has to suffer” gets a whole new meaning 😉

The last set for today has the gret name “Deco Set” and it really means it 😉 A combination of copper and blue dominate this beautiful set. Technically in RL it would be very hard to realize as the earrings just pierced in the sie of the head and the fantastic necklace just was pinned into the cleavage. But SL gives us the possibility… ‘Fashion is Art’ I heard a lot of people saying and Yula Finesmith, genius designer of Finesmith made it come true. For me a new era of jewelry in SL. Thanks a lot for daring Yula!

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Autumn in pink? ;)

The autumn season usually seems very dark and grey or brown so I decided to try a bit with pink and white 😉 As you can combine all the LeeZu clothing so easy I decided to go with LeeZu… beside that my last wardrobe post had been a while ago 😉

What fits the best for a dark lazy autumn afternoon…? Exactly a pair of cool and comfy jeans and if they are so stylish and fashionable as the “Robin” jeans of LeeZu are you really can wear a jeans and still be a fashionista 😉 The top is a mix and match of 2 outfits also from LeeZu. The  “Valerie” blouse in old pink combined with parts of the “Mia Corset Pants” in white was the perfect mix for the feeling I was in 😉 To keep the comfortable and lightly ‘used’ look I chose the “All Star HiTop used” sneakers from Hoorenbeek and the great “Beat” Hair from Posh that includes the neat hat. For the jewelry part I used the “Zoee” earrings in metal from LeeZu, the “7 Luck ” bracelets form Mandala and the great “Perfect Hand Nails” in the short version from Mstyle.

Maybe you agree that autumn does not automatically mean less color and have fun by experimenting by yourself also 😉

Stay styled,

Wicca

Autumn and elegance with Baiastice!

Out of the latest release of Baiastice we have a wonderful autumn outfit that’s part of the new collection of Sissy Pessoa.

The “Dana” dress here shown in petroleum is a perfect dress for the actual season. The days getting shorter and colder but most of the ladies do not wanna amiss the dresses and skirts :). Baiastice has the solution. The short dress is made with a very big eye for details and realism. Every fold is places very well thought and the amazing ruffled parts add a very elegant touch. The left side is dominated by bigger ruffles the right hand side is a bit more simple and that gives a very stylish asymmetric touch. The huge hat also decorated with the ruffled parts let imagine a nice afternoon in Ascot 😉 The long well-shaped legs are covered by awesome leggings that match the whole dress tone in tone. This is not the only great outfit out of the Baiastice Autum 2010 Collection and I will have a few more step by step here on my blog. If you do not want to wait make your way to the BaiasticeMainstore and take a look by yourself 😉

PurpleMoon – News and Showreview ;)

Today I have a little combination of a new release and some great outfits that I was allowed to showcase for the amazing PurpleMoon/Finesmith fashion show at BLVD. For first lets take a look on the new “Tango” outfit.

This outfit you can wear in 2 different versions. The first possibility is a sweet wide top that has an amazing huge neck collar.

The pants can be worn with or without the leg sleeves. The pants are made of  a dark grey / black texture that let imagine a light rough-looking fabric and the white line adds a wonderful elegant touch. The neat hat also is part of the outfit!

For the second version you can wear we also see that there is nother color available for the “Tango” outfit 😉 Here I just took off the wide top prim and the leg sleeves. The hat I changed to one of the new fantastic hair attachments, named “Era” that come with the perfect matching hairbases! So stay tuned for the new releases that will happen 😉

Last weekend the BLVD Agency had an amazing show showing off amazing creationd from PurpleMoon and Finesmith. It was an awesome combination of dreamy outfits and perfectly matching elegant and stylish looking jewelry.

My first outfit was a stunning dark blue gown named “Sue”. This great evening gown is the perfect outfit for an elegant night out. The amazing skirt falls down to the ground and moves behind you with every step. The aerial ruffles that decorate the chest make beautiful filigree looking touch. The neat little blue flowers are amazingly detailed and light the dark blue perfect. Another great highlight we have with the head part. A huge headpart that repeats the roses of the dress and has a little train in the back. Perfect for every fashionista who likes to turn heads!

As it was made for, the “Tension” set from Finesmith looks as a perfect addition to this stunning gown. The half round earrings that become smaller to the end like a half-moon decorate your ears. The same theme you have for the bracelet where 2 of that ‘half moons’ surround your wrist. FOr the perfect finish I added the “Metallic Silver” nails from PurpleMoon.

Another great outfit I was wearing for the show was the “Zasha” dress in bronze. A very tight dress that accents a well-shaped fashionistas body 😉 The horizontal stripes of the main texture adds a modern look to the whole dress. The top is shoulder free and makes great room for a huge edgy necklace like the “Kitsch Couture” necklace from Finesmith. The black gloves and the mermaid looking skirt prim in black make a nice frame where the texture of the dress is fantastic highlighted.

The incredible “Kitsch Couture” necklace and bracelet, made by Finesmith are the perfect addition if it comes to the jewelry part for this dress. The 3 different gold colors go perfect with the bronze and black texture of the dress that has neat little ornaments if you take a closer look. Together with the “Sun” face tattoo, made by White Widow and the “Invicta” hairstyle from Miamai the whole outfit was perfect for the runway 🙂

But if you make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore you can see way more of Poulet Koenkamp’s creation and you will really have a hard time to think wich one you get first :p

Autumn comes… we are prepared ;)

(Outfits: LeeZu – “BonVoyage” male & female version, Models: Wicca Merlin & Harsch Sharktooth, Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The days getting shorter, colder and less colorful. But also darker and fewer colors can be very fashionable 😉 For example the “Bon Voyage”  outfit from LeeZu. Part of the NOIR series this outfit comes in a male and a female version.

(Outfit: LeeZu – ” BonVoyage” male version, Model & Photographer: Harsch Sharktooth)

For the male version I am happy that Harsch Sharktooth agreed to help me for that part 🙂 Thanks a lot for your pics, time and patience Harsch!

“BonVoyage” for males is a great black opaque body suit. The basic black texture that we can see for the pants also is repeated in the combination of awesome textures.

(Outfit: LeeZu – ” BonVoyage” male version, Model & Photographer: Harsch Sharktooth)

Basically it looks like a simple bodysuit, but if you take a closer look and look at the prim attachments you will realize the amazing design ideas and skills with wich LeeZu can make every outfit to something special.

(Outfit: LeeZu – ” BonVoyage” female version, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The big legs sleeves, hand attachments, elbow attachments and the huge shoulder parts. All created with a fantastic eye for details and wonderful skills for creations and design! The female version is not a fully opaque body suit… it has this sexy laced parts at the top. The private parts are perfectly covered and still you can show a lot of stunning lace covered skin what accents your shape even more 😉

Overall a perfect outfit for the actual season anyways if male or female… with the “BonVoyage” you are perfectly dressed if you take care of your style 😉

Dojo – Papercouture… How sexy paper can be ;)

(Outfit: dojo – “Primerette”, Model: Wicca Merlin, Photographer: Helenna Baxton)

Again Sanders Beaumont shows how sexy and stylish paper can be.

The outfit is combined of tight pants with the paper optic and a great futuristic looking belly free top. For the top we have a long sleeve layer part and a great prim attachment that carries the huge shoulder parts. If you want you also can wear the chopsticks that are also included as a great hair decoration. Also part of the outfit are the amazing booties that are made in kinda Alexander McQueen style with the big front part that let you walk nearly on the toe tips and the high small heel in the back. Also the shoes are decorated with amazing details and the whole outfit again shows the great skills if it comes to the unique textures.

For the second outfit of this blog post I chose one of the new dresses -“Paulette”

“Paulette”, a short sexy dress all made of paper 😉 The skirt starts very tight and at the bottom it opens like a up-side-down tulip 😉 Matching to the dress Sanders added a huge hat. Hat and dress both are decorated with a filigree black ribbon.

To cover the chest we have a great black prim attachment with an amazing collar at the upper end.

This outfit comes with the same great booties as the “Primerette” I had as my first outfit in this post. This are only 2 of the newer dojo outfit and there is one very special with an amazing effect that I will showcase I my next dojo blog post… so stay tuned 😉

Nyu Concepts HUD

All of us always search for a HUD that works easy and lag free and to use without reading books of instructions that are hard to understand.

First, you put your poses and walks in HUD contents, then you open the notecard and fill it with your pose names. Save the notecard and load it by clicking a single button (as you can see at the pic).

Click Height button to find your height, with and without shoes.Tthe HUD  has an Instant Pose Stand so you need no extra posestand anymore. You just click the button and you can edit the prims you wanna move or resize.

16 poses plus one walk per ‘tab’ also make it easy to combine your own choreographie for every single walk you have for a show.
