Hunger Games Tribute by Lybra

Lybra  - Glimmer 01

“It’s weird, how much he’s noticed me… And apparently, I have not been as oblivious to him as I imagined, either.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Today our journey through the Capitol and the Districts brings us to District 1, wich stands for luxury. How else than Lybra Rage owner and designer of Lybra could have chosen this District 😉 .

District 1 is one of the wealthiest districts of Panem. Parents from district 1 seem to name their children after diamonds or precious gems, items or fabrics, like we have Glimmer and Marvel for the 74th Hunger Games. The children of District seem to be very pride in taking part in the Hunger Games and usually are part of the Careers,  who band together to get rid of the weaker ones first.

I would like to start with “Glimmer” a wonderful light golden dress with an amazing golden back piece and a wonderful matching Tiara. The dress itself shows a lot of skin and besides the elegant and classy look that adds a sweet sexy touch as well.

Lybra  - Glimmer 02

The special for this outfit would be, that it is a limited gown with only 20 copies and there are not much left! So go and get your “Glimmer” dress and with that, a piece of the legendary Hunger Games Tribute Event done by Opium Evolution.

Lybra  - Absinthe 01

The second outfit of Lybra for the Hunger Games Tribute is the “Absinthe” gown. In contrast to the “Glimmer” gown this one is made of a dark golden fabric with a long back train, wich is decorated at the end with some amazing feather looking prims.

Those feathers are repeated on the marvelous head – piece as well, wich almost looks like a crown and perfectly fits in to District 1.

To get a hand on those amazing designs please visit the Hunger Games Tribute shopping mall 🙂

WW - Johanna 01

“Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

And again I am back with another of my creations for the Hunger Games Tribute event ran by Opium Evolution.

Today I would like to showcase my “Johanna” dress. This dress is made with the idea of Capitol Couture.

The dress is basically a short dress with a long train in the back. The shoulders are free and a huge collar lays round the neck. To connect the dress and the collar I placed one of the popular mockingjaw brooches at the left side of the chest. The dress itself has a basic black texture and the golden brocade corset sets a wonderful accent to the black and gives the whole ensemble a sophisticated touch. To bring back the gold, the long train was overlayed with a golden gitter net looking gaze. The huge black and gold headpiece as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and an unrigged version.

To complete the look I added one armlet in black and one bracelet in gold.

At the moment you can see all my new releases for the Hunger Games Tribute even – female AND male – at the shopping area of the Hunger Games Tribute event sim (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)

A Tribute to the Hunger Games by Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW - Enobaria 001

“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
Today is a very special day for me. The first time my own creations will be showcased on a runway. I was asked my Anastacia Markova to be part of the Hunger Games Tribute done my Opium Evolution.
I sat down for 3 weeks to think about what I would like to do for this amazing event. I am addicted to the Hunger Games stories. I saw both movies, read all the books and have 3 parts as audio book, so I can say I am kinda.. obsessed*giggles*
I love the idea of the futuristic and high fashion designs that are worn in the movies as well the various websites about Capitol Couture.
In the past I already released my Claw Boots and the Mathayus Heels, wich as well were made after a website that shows Capitol Couture.
Today I would like to start with my “Enobaria” outfit.
The name Enobaria was taken from one of the tributes that were chosen to be part of the hunger games. She won the 62nd Hunger Games and was known of killing her fellow tributes by ripping their throats with her bare teeth. She was called back for the 75th Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell edition, as the female tribute of district 2 one of the Career alliance districts.
The “Enobaria” outfit is a top and leggings combination, wich as well can be worn single to make your own mix and match. For the Capitol Couture version I chose the color combination teal and black. The top kinda is an ensemble of blouse and corset and with the long arms and all the frills it was perfect in my view.
The leggings are only wearable with the Slink high feet, wich are not included in the package. The one part legging shows a metallic teal top with garter belt and garters wich hold long socks or stockings where the toes peek out. I totally fell in love with those pants and so it was no question that I made them part of my “Enobaria” outfit.
The Mask as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and unrigged version.
I hope you have fun with my little Hunger Games Tribute collection available at the Hunger Games Tribute Shopping Area (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)

Play Chess with Rfyre & EMO-tions!

Rfyre 01

Today I would like to showcase the contribution of Rfyre to the Month of Games event.

The amazing “No Ones Pawn” mesh dress comes with gloves, boots and the awesome detailed head-piece. The dress itself carries a chess textured fabric and with the garters, the longer back and the short front it has a very sexy look. The gloves come with a HUD that lets you chose from different hand positions

When I did the styling and the pics I was all to the Musical Chess listening to all that amazing songs. One is an old-time favourite from mine and I had it in a turnaround quite a few times while I edited the pics, so iI would like to share it with you 😉

The hair style was one of the releases of EMO-tions for the Hairfair 2014. The “Love War” hair actually comes with an amazing headpiece, wich I will showcase in another post soon. I just liked the hair with the one braid in between the loose open hair for that look.

In the musical it’s about a snobby, intellectual chess master who visits Bangkok, capital of Thailand, for a chess championship, but is looking down on everything else that goes on there, the sex tourism and stuff like that. And he has no other interest than the chess, lol. But the devil walking next to him line, might indicate that he also feels tempted while being there. But he needs to stay focussed to win the game.

Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don’t know that the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
Show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies – doesn’t seem a minute
Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change – don’t you know that when you
Play at this level there’s no ordinary venue

It’s Iceland – or the Philippines – or Hastings – or –
or this place!

One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you’re lucky then the god’s a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One town’s very like another
When your head’s down over your pieces, brother

It’s a drag, it’s a bore, it’s really such a pity
To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town –

Tea, girls, warm, sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

Get Thai’d! You’re talking to a tourist
Whose every move’s among the purest
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

Siam’s gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a
Muddy old river or reclining Buddha

And thank God I’m only watching the game – controlling it –

I don’t see you guys rating
The kind of mate I’m contemplating
I’d let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use would not excite you

So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage
parlours –

One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

Hunger Games Tribute by Zibska

Hunger Games - Zibska 02

“You don’t forget the face of the person who was your last hope.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Today I have the great pleasure to showcase of the fantastic creations of Zibska for the Hunger Games Tribute Event run by Opium Evolution.

Zibska is well-known for amazing designs that have an edgy and out of the box look. The “Loor” outfit again shows that there is always something new in the genius mind of Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska, The idea with the huge metal helmet and the matching cuffs together with that red and silver top will turn heads everywhere you go. For the pants we have smart and modern striped fabric that perfectly completes the whole ensemble.

There will be more amazing Capitol Couture looking designs and amazing tributes to the Hunger games soon in the upcoming “Hunger Games Tribute” event done by Opium Evolution. So stay tuned, I will have more designs featured soon!

Hunger Games Tribute by EF Designs

Hunger Games - EF Designs 01

“You’ve got to go through it to get to the end of it.”
Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire
EF Designs as well made wonderful contributions to the upcoming Hunger Games Tribute event, presented by Opium Evolution.
The amazing “Orchid Dress”  really would be something I can imagine in the movies, worn at the capitol.
The strong colors and the amazing petals that are arranged round your hip and waist just gives the imagination you grow out of the middle of a flower 😉 .
For the hair I chose to use one of the amazing colors from the “Kiki” hair by Zibska.
My fantastic makeup artist was Madrid Solo. She made this wonderful “Checkered Past” eye makeup and the wonderful “Vendetta” lip design.
For my nails I used one of Yula Finesmith’s newest little art pieces. She created several wonderful nail polishes for hands and feet and the one I used for this post is located in the “Summer Set 1”.

[sys] @ the Hairfair featuring Prism

Prism 001

At the moment we have hair fair and I got so many new and amazing hairstyles 🙂

One of the is my new “Hanayo” hair from [sys]. A wonderful short hairstyle with a huge decoration in the back, made of 5 amazing looking red fans and some sweet little flowers in purple and yellow. With all those wonderful acessories to the hair it gives the whole look a lightly asian touch.

The “Hanayo” hair style is not the only new release by [sys] and I soon will show you some more. For now I would lead the focus over to my wonderful “Leah” outfit from Prism.

Prism 002

This awesome knitted combination of a layer top and under pants with this beautiful mesh skirt and belt is a wonderful addition to your everyday wear, especially with the temperatures that are going on right now in the middle of summer. The “Leah” outfit can be purchased in many different color options, for my post today I chose to use the ‘news’ option with the amazing mixture of red against black and white 😉

For the shoes I took some of my Cashmere ones and  for the accessories i took my “Dark Desire” collar and the “Dark Metal Cuffs” that are sold at The Instruments at the moment.

The super amazing nail polish that you can see in the last picture is mad by Nailed It! The “Rock” set has various options for black, red and white styles and it became one of my favourite ones lately 😉 .

Circus Mystic for Fashion for Life 2014

FFL PC 03

During the .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week S/S 2014 I met a very creative and wonderful person. Trinity Yazimoto, owner and super creative designer of Petite Chat (*PC*). I already blogged 2 of her creations for the :PENUMBRA: Fashion Week and now she is part of the Fashion for Life (FFL) with new creations. One of those new designs is the “Circus Dress”. Again this dress was made from a wonderful picture of herself. I talked to her for a few times now and I only can imagine how difficult it is to bring those amazing paintings on mesh prims. If you ever tried to texture a mesh item, you know how back it stretches, twists and destroys the actual texture. But if you take a closer look on Trinity’s creations you can see that every little thing is sharp and in line on the clothing as it was in the art work.

The “Circus Dress” inspired me to really go against the circus idea. A longer time ago I got a wonderful gift from Daphne Klossovsky, designer of [HANDwerk]. A super sweet and cute wooden horse that looks like as it was taken out of a carousel. The colors just went perfect with the “Circus Dress” and so I finally found something I can post that amazing carousel horse with 😉 .

The “Circus Dress” is materials enabled and so you can test all those super cool new windlights with that new feature as well and can see the full beauty of that dress and as well it adds a wonderful uniqueness to the dress.

The original artworks are displayed in Trinitys little art gallery called Petite Chat Gallery (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Haddath/26/106/67).

And to keep the eyes on Fashion for Life please as well take a look at the hair. The “Josy” hair style was made by Mirja Mills, owner and creator of EMO-tions.

“Josy” has a wonderful long and flexible high ponytail and in the front some wisps fall into your face. With all those amazing features and the fact that you can have this in all the well-known colors that EMO-tion offers, this hair is the perfect addition for your everyday hairstyles.

Please make your way over to the Fashion for Life sims and help with enlarging your wardrobe, hair and accessories. All those amazing designs were made for an amazing charity that raises money for those who need the help!

FFL PC 02

Last but not least I would like to share the music, wich underlined my inspiration for the pictures while I was working on them.

Circus

There’s only two types of people in the world
The ones that entertain and the ones that observe
Well baby, I’m a put-on-a-show kind of girl
Don’t like the backseat, gotta be first

I’m a like the ringleader, I call the shots
(Call the shots)
I’m like a firecracker I make it hot
When I put on a show

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I’m ready to break
I’m like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon’ trip just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor just like a circus ahhhhha

There’s only two types of guys out there
Ones that can hang with me and ones that are scared
So baby, I hope that you came prepared
I run a tight shift so beware

I’m a like the ringleader, I call the shots
(Call the shots)
I’m like a firecracker, I make it hot
When I put on a show

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I’m ready to break
I’m like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon’ trip just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor just like a circus

Let’s go

Let me see what you can do
I’m runnin’ this like-like-like a circus
Yeah, like a what? Like-like-like a circus

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon’ trip just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor just like a circus

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon’ trip just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor just like a circus

Art in Hats 2014

Miamai Arts & Hats 3 with logo

Miamai – “Amarcord Hat” – luxe – black satin (Art in Hats 2014)

Yesterday the amazing Art in Hats 2014 event started. Again Quan Lavander took the challenge to again let  her amazing event happen, wich brings together photographers or bloggers and designers.

I felt very honored, when Quan last week IMed me asking if I would like to be part of her idea and make  the pictures for the stunning designs of Miamai. I love Miamai since in forever, so there was no doubt about it, that I wanted to make that. Quan TPed me over to take a look at the awesome hats of Miamai and instantly I had ideas how I would like to make pictures with them.

Miamai Arts & Hats 2 with logo

Miamai – “Soleil Hat” – luxe – indigo flax (Art in Hats 2014)

The basic idea of the exhibition is to bring designers, artists and photographers together in an art exhibition / sales event by presenting hats built by artists and fashion designers in combination with photos made by photographer, bloggers or graphic artists. The photos are meant to be an art shot.

Hats are such an important accessory to so many stylings that the idea of an event only made for hats really caught my attention already last year.

This year as well I am allowed to blog some of the amazing designs so it will be great fun after contributing those 3 pictures to ply around with some of the other amazing creations 🙂

I am very proud to be invited  to be part of Art in Hats. These are the 3 pictures I have made for the exhibition and there they are available, certainly without the Art in Hats letters ;).

Thank you so much Quan, for inviting me !
