DaneMarkz for the debra charity!

Charity001

Today I would like to focus on something very special. The top and the necklace for today’s post are something very important.

Both was made by Hannah Daviau, owner and designer of DaneMarkz (DMZ) and it is her contribution for the EB Charity Event.

The top is available in 6 wonderful colors and patterns with flowers and butterflies and all what you can imagine under the summer theme :). For todays post I chose the “Nanette” top in peachy green. The beautiful combination of colors and the amazing shape of the top are the right choice for the upcoming season. Together with the “Summerlovin'” necklace in green wich as well is a donation to the debra  (Dystrophic Epidermolyosis Bullosa Research of America) charity. AS well she made some shoes that will probably be part of another blog post ;).

What is EB?

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) — The Worst Disease You’ve Never Heard Of.™

Epidermolysis Bullosa, or EB, is a very rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects 1 child out of every 20,000 births (that means about 200 children a year are born with EB).  EB is actually a group of disorders that share a prominent manifestation of extremely fragile skin that blisters and tears from friction or trauma. Internal organs and bodily systems can also be seriously affected by EB.  The list of secondary complications  can be long and may require multiple interventions from a range of medical specialists.  As of today, there is no cure or treatment.  Daily wound care, pain management and protective bandaging are the only options available.

The manifestations of EB, the symptoms the person suffers from, and the overall long term outcome on quality of life run the gamut from mild to devastatingly severe.  This is dependent on several factors including the type and subtype of EB and the inheritance pattern (autosomal dominant versus recessive).  There are many people who are diagnosed with milder forms of EB, which, while they can be extremely difficult and painful to live with, are not disfiguring or lethal.  In these forms of EB blistering of the skin may be limited to the hands and feet which may not result in any scarring or loss of function.  In more severe forms there is generalized blistering of the skin as well as injury to many internal organs and bodily systems.  These more severe forms of EB result in disfigurement, disability and early death, usually before the age of 30.  In fact, some forms of EB are lethal in the first few months of life.

EB is caused by mutations in the DNA code that make up genes.  Genes are responsible for making and expressing proteins.  EB can result from one genetic mutation in any one of the 18 genes that have been found to cause the disorder.  These mutations, or errors in the genetic code, may not allow the affected gene to produce a specific protein, or it may result in the incorrect formation of that protein.  Either way, the mutation does not enable the affected protein to work correctly thus resulting in extremely fragile skin, and other manifestations of EB like: anemia, cardiomyopathy, syndactyly (fusion of the fingers and toes), renal insufficiency, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), malnourishment, cancer, constipation, osteoporosis, muscular dystrophy and pyloric atresia.

There are four types of genetically inherited EB: Simplex, Dystrophic, Junctional and Kindler.  These four major types of EB differ phenotypically (what physical manifestations look like) and genotypically (the genetic makeup) as well as by the area of the skin where there is blistering, otherwise known as “the site of ultra-structural disruption or cleavage”.  There is also an autoimmune form of the disorder called, EB Acquisita .

Children with EB are known as Butterfly children because their skin is as fragile as the wings of a butterfly.

There are about 30,000 people with EB in the United States.

EB affects both genders and every racial and ethnic background.

The Pose Fair 2014 is up! RubyStarlight Writer again made it to put together one of the most popular events on the grid. Every year she takes a lot of time and effort to feature a lot of pose designers on her fair. This year she created an amazing place for the Pose Fair 2014.

When you enter the sim you will immediately see what I am talking about. The whole place is black and just the shop entrances are highlighted. When I set up my store I really was impressed and it was super fun to just walk around and enjoy the feeling of the darkeness outside of the shops 😉

WM - Poses Elegant Clutch Set Posefair 2014 logo

For me this Pose Fair is very special as I was allowed to be part as a designer for the first time 🙂 . For my debut on the Pose Fair 2014 I made 4 different sets who are exclusively released atthe Pose Fair 2014 for now.

§ sets for the ladies and one for the gents. After I was asked so often to make some more male poses I had to include at least one set for the males as well even if I was told and as well shown, that some of my other sets as well work unisex.

I hope you enjoy my new sets and have fun by using them for runway or pictures 😉

You should not miss that great experience of the Pose Fair 2014 and all the great and amazing new and exclusive releases of all the designers who are being part 🙂

Through the eyes of a child

Sweet innocent child with your open eyes.
You’ve seen us for who we really are.
And I know that there’ll be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day.
And I wish that this world would embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I know you, I’ve seen your face before
you brought me to this open door
afraid to walk through.
Please take my hand.

I know that there will be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day?
And I wish that this world embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I see where we’ll go from here.
‘Cause love doesn’t break
with the right amount of care
in your hands is whom you’ve choosen to be.
Life is a freedom.
Now go out there and be free.

Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.

 Fashion for K.I.D.S.  is a week-long charity event which will take place from April 14th to April 21st, 2014. that will help to feed the bodies and minds of young children. The two Miss Virtual World 2014 Candidates, Sienna Bellios and Shelby Matfield will collaborate in this effort , and raises funds for K.I.D.S., a children’s charity that aids in the development of children through nourishment and education (literacy). K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distress Situations) donates 97 percent of donations to the children and families they serve. The charity helps many kids in distress situations such as homelessness, low literacy rate, victims of domestic violence, children with serious illness, and military families. More information on this charity can be found at http://www.kidsdonations.org/about_wwa.htm.

During this event, a host of 18+ designers  willing to set up small vendors of their creations – with one creation donating 50% or more to the children’s charity. Since the charity is to aid children, the designers will have an array of bright colors to represent children, and just in time for spring! To cap off this event, we will host a grand fashion show on the BOSL sim, featuring the awesome women of Miss Virtual World 2014! It is our hope that through this colorful, spring fashion event, that we raise a substantial amount of lindens to give to K.I.D.S.

Each day families all around the world struggle for food, clothing, and shelter. Each day a parent loses their job and with the loss of a job, usually the loss of their home follows. We work hard to make ends meet, rob Peter to pay Paul, struggle to care for our children but the truth is, the vast majority is just one pay check away from poverty. And while as adults we suffer, those who suffer the most are our children. (Sazzy Nirpaw, http://sazzynirpaw.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/through-a-childs-eyes/)

—————————————————————

I really was very happy when Sienna IMed me and asked me, if I would like to participate in that event. I worked or over 10 years in children home for abused and homeless kids and it really touched my heart, when Sienna asked me. All the memories came back, the eyes of the children looking at me, their little hands reaching out for something the would like to have, the sparkling in their eyes for candy if I brought some with me to work…

I was thinking a lot what I could make for such a charity, because I really wanted to have something that has the kids theme in it. The idea of the “Lolliopop Gown” was born. All kids love candy and the idea of a gown made of lollipops just seemed for me the right idea for such a charity 😉

The gown comes with the mesh corset, a mesh skirt, the huge lollipop back-fan, the ribbons and ruffles and some little parts like the hair decoration and the lollipop for the hand. I left all the prim parts modify, so that you can play with them and reattach or resize them to your likings.

I hope you all like the idea, my little candy dream because 100% proceeds of the “Lollipop Gown” will go to the K.I.D.S. charity.

Please help those who cannot help themselves!

Wicca’s Wardrobe for the BeStyle Gypset Market

Spring Flower Dress Pink

The BeStyle Gypset Market is a monthly event done by the BeStyle District. They have 2 different locations, one GOLD and one SILVER section. At the gold section you will find limited designs and the silver section has smaller and non limited creations to offer 🙂 .

I was very excited, when Linnda Scofield IMed me and asked me if I would like to be part of that event. The request was to create something spring looking in pastel colors. I decided to make the spring dress, wich already was a great success ina  very special color, wich willnot be available anymore after this month of the BeStyle Gypset Market. Since you all know about my pink allergy, I thought I can suffer for a limited time of tha color and so the “Spring Flower” dress in pink was born 😉 .

To match the “Spring Flower” dress in pink I made one of my “Coco” bags matching to the dress.

All those amazing creations that were made for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 event… and so less time to showcase them all 🙁

But I keep trying, even if it might get over the time of the event itself, I really belive they all should have a spotlight 😉

For this look I combined different designs released for the event on the SAVIAD sim. The huge feather wings and the amazing matching collar are parts of the release of Finesmith of the FIERA event. The “Butterfly” in general has a matching dress as well coming with them but I liked the “Estara” gown from Silken Moon so much together with it, so I just had to put those together 😉 . The cute wrap around at the chest have such an amazing and realistic look, simply stunning. The aerial pattern Malicia put on the dress with this amazing color combinations and the filigree floral structures just made the whole dress to a perfect spring item 🙂 .

To complete the colorful spring look, I added one of the 2 amazing head pieces from Swallow. The “Butterfly” headpiece in turquoise just hit the nail on the hat for me 😉

The elegant “Allegra” hair knot at the back of the head together with the amazing hairbase again comes from EMO-tions.

The matching makeup with the soft but still deep colors I found at Silken Moon. The combination of the “SM Eclipse Centrestage Green Spleen” and the “SM Eclipse Color Eye Mauve” caught the colors of the look in an amazing way.

Azul as well made a beautiful gown for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 @ SAVIAD. The “Claro de Luna” gown is a partial mesh gown with as well flexible prims that let some parts flow amazingly with every breeze of air that surrounds you 😉 .

The hat as well was made for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair. BaObA made a few wonderful hats for the fair and the “Orchids” just was the perfect match to the “Claro de Luna” gown.

The beautiful “‘Spring Wedding” nails from Nailed It! are as well one of 2 super cute sets, wich you can find at the SAVIAD sim.

So I just had to find some jewelry and hair to complete the look. The hair comes from EMO-tions and is called “Yashi” with the high updo, I wanted to underline the elegant and still modern look of the dress and the hat.

For the jewelry I wanted something with a timeless chic and I decided to go with the “Talluah” set from Maxi Gossamer.

SAVIAD GizzA + Finesmith 001

One more post for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 for today 😉

This time I would like to show case one of the amazing creations of GizzA at the SAVIAD sim. The “Lolita Dress” comes with leggings that have the heels included, the hat and the wonderful butterfly belt accessories. With the light brown and beige color it really gives you a feeling of the coming warmer days of spring.

For the jewelry I decided to go with the “Geula” set of Finesmith. The golden brown textures give a wonderful frame for the huge gem and with the beige of the outfit it was just as it was made for it 😉 .

To match the beautiful gem I wanted to add some more color to the beige and brown. I remembered one of the “Rainbow” eye shadows. The “Rainbow Mauve” catched the colors of the gem so wonderful and gave the whole look the little bit of color I wanted.

The little bag, I made by myself and I like it so much that I decided to make a few white ones, wich you can find at my first gacha on the SAVIAD sim as well 😉

Now I wanna share a secret with you… if you take a look on my skin… yes it is still my custom-made Wicca skin by Silken Moon, but Malicia updated it!

She made a whole new body and as well updated a lot of my facial features. And besides my usual super light tone she made me one version in the new peach tone she made for her new skin line as well! But this I would like to pull over onto a nother post with a total spotlight on my new updated Wicca 😉

Wicca’s Wardrobe for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 @ SAVIAD – Part 1

Spring Flower Dress Vendor

Today I am very excited… The FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 is the first event I was asked to be part as a designer!

I started making poses longer ago and lately I found fun in making shoes and clothing. I started with some black and white clothing and so the SAVIAD event really was a challenge for me. The request was to create something spring looking. I thought a long time anbout what I could do and did some research of the colors for spring 2014. In the end the result was 2 very different creations and the first one I would like to show you today.

The “Spring Flower” dress is a short, non symetric dress with amezing ruffles on the outside of the right leg, wich is a little longer than the left side. To underline the soft orange color I decided to add some orchids and Daisys in front of the dress. I started with the sash of flowers and while I was putting them together one by one the idea came to my mind to extend them even down the ruffles. When I saw the final result i wanted to add some more flowers round the head and so the idea of  a little hat was born 😉

Spring Flower Hat Vendor

To add some more flowers i decided to include 2 little daisys to the dress as earrings. When I took a final look over the dress with the hat, I could not resist to even make booties for it as I like to create whole looks where all works together. Sometimes I have trouble while styling to find the right color for the shoes and so the “Spring Flowers Booties” were born 🙂 . The “Spring Flower Booties” match the color of the dress and as well repeats the orchids and flowers I used for the dress sash and the head piece.

Spring Flower Booties Vendor

In the end I liked the dress so much that I wanted to make it in another color, so I decided to make a white version of the “Spring Flower” dress and the booties as well.
