Stunning news from !deviousMind & EMO-tions

!dM 24 001

Today I would like to lead your view on one of the latest releases from deviousMind (!dM). For “The 24” event, Chandra Meehan created a wonderful and sexy dress called “Yve”.

!dM 24 002

“Yve” is part of kinda a new mini collection of deviousMind. The thing that combines all of the new designs are the ivy petals that are used for ornaments, decoration and parts of the textures. The “Yve” dress has a super cool feature. If you purchase one at “The 24” event, where it is sold as an exclusive design, you will get a hell lot of options with that dress.

!dM 24 003

As I unpacked my “Yve” dress, i first looked for the HUD, as I saw at the advertise, that it should be color change. Since the dress it self is mesh made, I thought you can change the texture and color by a HUD. But there was none and as I anyways was talking to Chandra, I asked her and she told me to just touch the dress… I was like… “oook but mesh you usually cannot touch, if it is rigged” but she just answered that if SL gives me trouble by touch only, I should just right click it and choose the option touch. I was very surprised after I touched the dress and got a menu. With the menu you can easy recolor the dress to your likings. The “Ivy” dress comes in various sizes so you can make sure you get one to fit your shape. As well you will find 2 version of each size for the dress, one metallics and one metallic material, where you can choose from. This dress is really a must have for all who dare to be different 😉

You still have a few days left to get one of the “Yve” at the “The 24” event, but hurry only 100 are available and there is not too much left!

The “Dream” hairstyle and the “Wild Garden” necklace are one of the latest releases of EMO-tions. The hair style is perfect for any elegant or even fashionista look. The ears are free and you can showcase perfectly earrings and jewelry ;). The “Wild Garden” is a wonderful necklace of the mesh jewelry collection of EMO-tions. With the filigree lines in black and silver and the little decorations, that are added on them it made the perfect finish for my today’s look.

Taste the Rainbow – Maybe the darker end of it?

Rainbow Hunt Faster PussyCat 001

And again I am in need of some serious medicals, after I was wearing this incredible contribution of Faster PussyCat for the Taste the Rainbow Hunt.

The “Lady Rainbow Laced Pants” are as well part of the mini collection that Faster PussyCat made for the most colorful hunt I ever saw. The “Lady Rainbow” pants are mesh made and the cool black laces at the sides give them a light punk touch, which I took as inspiration to go more into that direction and mix the strong colors with some more dark and edgy parts.

Rainbow Hunt Faster PussyCat 002

The top I chose, comes from LeeZu and is part of their BDSM collection. I just took the top part of the “Liquid Latex” outfit and the gloves. The wonderful colored wings are as well part of the Taste the Rainbow Hunt, made by Deviance. The cool hair is the “Pero” from Zibska, which i found at the HairFair 2013, but I retextured the white version of it to let it match to the colored look.

The mask I found at the gacha Fair. I had the luck to pull the rare version of the “Itzy Spider”” mask from Black Pearls, that has this neat scripted metal spider sitting on the shoulder. The mas covers half of the face with a black fabric and is decorated by a chain and a toothed wheel over the left eye. This mask as well can go very well with a steampunk look. At the lips as well you can see those 2 metal parts, that are part of the “Itzy Spider” mask. For the shoes, I remembered some cool shoes from Oh! with a little moving spider inside of the plateau soles.

My skin for sure is my custom made “Wicca” skin from Silken Moon. Silken Moon just released a new wonderful skin named “Diva”.

Malicia Python again outdid herself to create an incredible new skin for her E-Clipse line. I will soon have a complete post about it, so just a little teaser at this time 😉

You still have till the 3rd of September 2013 to do the amazing Taste the Rainbow Hunt. With all the amazing contributions of  various designers it is really worth it to give it a try 😉 You just have to search the little glass that is hidden at the stores. (I already gave the surls to the stores here:https://wiccamerlin.de/somewhere-over-the-rainbow-in-second-life-or-wicca-in-wonderland/)

This is what you're hunting for...

Rainbow Hunt - FP+SS 001

Again I would like to drag your attention to the ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ hunt. Faster Pussycat made a mini collection of 4 amazing outfits for that crazy and colorful hunt. Today I would like to spotlight the “Lady Rainbow Pantsuit”. Honey Bender and PoosyKat LittleBoots really became crazy with the rainbow theme. The pantsuit is shoulder free and super cool scarf, that is part of the outfit, makes a perfect addition to the suit.

Rainbow Hunt - FP+SS 002

The huge dragonfly as well is part of the ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ hunt and comes from Studio Sidhe, a super cool poses and prop store. The huge colorful dragonfly works like a glider. you just have to sit on the bar and you can fly all over the grind with the amazing hunt gift.

If yxou would take a closer look at the hands now… I would like to drag your attention to my nail polish. Malicia Python, owner an designer of Silken Moon made a huuuuge palette of various colors for the SLINK hands. The shine of the nailpolish is really amazing and so awesome realistic! You should really take a look at the Silken Moon Mainstore and see all the beautiful colors.

The incredible realistic shoes are made by ENNA. The sneakers really caught my heart, as they are so well textured. The “ENNA Sneakers” for women are available in different colors, wich you all can see at the ENNA Mainstore. For the hair I cheated a little bit. I took the white version of the “Octavia” hair from Zibska, and colored all the single parts in the same bright col9ors, that I found on the “Lady Rainbow Pantsuit” from Faster Pussycat. For the makeup, I decided to go with a mix of the amazing “Cool Pink” eyes from LovelyMi and the “Wicca Lips Blue Steel from Silken Moon.

“Somewhere over the Rainbow..”

Come and find out!

Rainbow Hunt - dm! 002
For my first but certainly not last post, I would like to showcase the contribution of devousMind to the ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ hunt. Chandra Meehan, owner and designer of !dM, made an amazing corset outfit for the hunt.  The very colorful corset made of all the rainbow colors. The awesome frilled white pants, the sweet collar, the white fishnet tights and the sweet net train that brings back all the sweet colors 😉

For me, the usually black loving person it was not immediately comfortable to be so colorful, but one by one I got used to it. First I added the yellow version of the “Piccadilly Overknee Boots” from LeeZu when I came across the super cool “Codie” hair from Discord Designs. It had a rainbow colored  version in it and it was going perfectly with the “Valentina” corset from !dM. Each hair color of the gacha coes with a “Ripley” black hairbase. The “Codie” hairstyle was made for the gacha at the ’24’ event and usual colors will follow at the Discord Designs Mainstore after the event. To add my little rebel to the whole look i decided to go with one of the newest tattoos from White Widow. Julie Hastings made some new body tattoos, wich as well come with a tango applier for all those who love the new mesh boobies.

For the picture I wanted to go crazy with colors and items so I decided to put a lot of colorful candy behind and around me. I got a little bit the feeling of “Wicca in Wonderland” as I added the way too big teapot and the huge muffins and lollipops*giggles*

This is what you're hunting for...

If you are not sure what to search for … look the picture above. That would be the item you should look for 😉

The “Somewhere over the Rainbow” hunt is definitely worth a try, as many amazing designers put incredible colorful items for the hunters.

Love for Donna Flora – SoliDea FoliEs for Squinternet Larnia

Solidea - Hope for Donna Flora full

SoliDea FoliEs made two wonderful dresses for the Love for Donna Flora charity event. Many people came together to help Squinternet Larina with her heavy burden, the fight against her cancer. (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/)

Please make sure you visit the Love for Dona Flora sim and see all of those amazing designs, that were created to help Squinternet! (Taxi: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/139/155/31)

Solidea - Hope for Donna Flora half

Mila Tatham, owner and designer of SoliDea FoliEs, contributed 2 amazing creations. One of them is the “Dotty” dress. A wonderful short white dress with huge black spots. The delicate laced top, together with the amazing collar and writs parts call for a cute, nice and all sweet styling usually. So I wanted to give it some twist and as I showed it to Malicia, all she had to say was like “…you look like a crazy, freaky stewardess”.. thank you Mal.. so much to that :p .

I added one of the amazing hats of Donna Flora called “Blackpool” and some hair from Amacchi that they gave away at the hair fair as a gift 😉

Solidea - Hope for Donna Flora shoes

The shoes I used for this post, are one of the amazing creations that Energie showcases on the actual Shoe Fair 2013. The “Flirtiny” heels really caught my attention as they were something new to me. First of all I saw they come with 2 different HUDS. One for socks and skin options and one for the nails and all the amazing spikes. What was special to me, was the idea of not having regula stockings that do not show the toes. I liked how the stockings have open spots at the feet and with the HUD you can choose from different ornaments for the stockings, different colors of the stockings and even a ripped option. All the different stockings that you can choose for the feet , are delivered as well in a special stocking bag, wich comes with the shoes. The extreme high heels can be decorated with 3 different colors via the HUD – Gold, Silver nd black. If you wanna see more of the amazing ne creations of Energie hurry to the Shoe Fair 2013 and see what  else they have new!

Brave Woman – A Tribute to Donna Flora

Love for Donna Flora full

Some brave women, not the famous ones, fought for the right to vote early in the last century, they were called Suffragettes in a pejorative manner. They went on hunger strikes, were forcibly fed, went into passive resistance and took other measures to claim that women are equal. After almost 20 years of fighting, the right to vote was finally granted in 1919 (USA) and 1920 (UK). Being a political decision, it had a strong impact on the women’s lives and their appearance. Long hair was cut, and skirts shortened, the corsets went. Around then Coco Chanel invented the little black dress offering an unknown freedom of movement tot he wearer. She was right when she said, this dress would be “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.“ Today we think of Flappers, thinking back tot he glorious 20s, who would not have been without some brave women fighting for their rights.

But there are other ways to be brave, face an illness, be there for others, raise children, solidarize and to speak up when needed, to name a few.

When talking about the Love Donna Event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/), Mal and I decided to pay our tribute, too. I guess you will get why we picked the 20’s theme.

 

As Mal was too late fort he Love Donna Flora event, she will donate all her Flapper skins you buy in the main shop. Click here for more details https://wiccamerlin.de/silken-moon-flapper-line/

Or help by visiting the Love Donna Event and enjoy what the awesome designers of SL donated to pay their tribute. The Love for Donna Flora Event will take place from the 25th of July until August the 11th. For a Limo please click HERE (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/135/127/31)

Our hearts go out to Sqinternet, the person behind Donna Flora, please send your hearts, too.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: How to not get broke?!?

ShoeFair 2013 Full

Shoes Fair… Hair Fair… Sales… lately it is not really easy to not get broke*laughs*

Today I would like to show you a mixture of all of those amazing events 😉

ShoeFair 2013 Full 02

Maitreya had a huge sale going on for their 3rd anniversary and I did not wanna miss that one. Just imagine all the amazing clothes, hair and shoes for up to 50% off.. unbeliveable! I was shopping like mad and it would really let a single post explode, so I decided to go one by one 😉 For today I chose the “Leather Skinny Pants” in pearl. What I liked a lot, are the zippers that are on the upper thigh and the amazing shadow and light arangment that give those mesh pants an amzing realistic look.

The top comes from House of Fox. It was one of the Colabor88 contributions and I loved the puffy sleeves and the simplicity of the whole top.

ShoeFair 2013 close

The “Kelsey” shoes are one of thge exlusive contributions of  Latreia, for the Shoe Fair 2013.  What really caught my eyes was the awesome way that the shoes were textured. The muted black basic and the wonderful and destiled skin of the bare feet. The heels as well are something special andnot the usual shape that you find all over the grid. So

The hair is one of the lastest releases from EMO-tions for the Hair Fair 2013, where 30% of all the sells goes to the Wigs for Kids charity. The cool “Sidney” hair style totally is something that fity my style. The smart wisps that go down int o the face and the shaved sides that even have ornamnts in them.

The jewelry is one of the lastes releases of Finesmith. The “Lika” set normally comes with a dress called “Fakaza” and it was available st the Gypset Market.

The amazing nailpolish, that goes s wonderful withthe SLINK enhancment hands comes from Silken Moon. Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon, spent half of the last week to make nearly 100 new nail polishes for the SLINK mesh hands! From colorful to muted, from wild to sweet and some very special ones with extravagant ornaments on them.  I used for this post the tartan nails. Who ever is so crazy and makes a tartan lookng nailpolish in several colors? Mal does… and she made, beside s huge color pack that contains all colors you just can imagine, some very neat and fun looking nails 😉

So with all that great news and events going on… you tell me how you can be safe from getting broke?!?

Thank a lot Maxes Loon and his amazing Moolto team, for being chosen as the blogger of the month June 2013 for the MORE Magazine!

Seasons of Couture – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

season of couture_1

For the June 2013 issue of the BoSL Magazine, I had the great pleasure to work with Natzuka again. Our fresh crowned MVW 2013, was always a person I adored for her photography skills and for the person she is. So you can imagine how happy I was, when Persia asked me if I would like to work with Natzuka for a spread for Seasons of Couture… for sure I would like, what a question!

season of couture_2

Seasons of Couture… what is that you might ask. Seasons of Couture is a special project by BoSL & Co. Over 20 of the best designers on the grid, created RL inspired seasonal styles. At the Seasons of Couture you can get the designs for 30% off the retail price, but only a 100 of each. After that 100 they will go with the regular prize to the designers Mainstores.

Seasons of Couture location: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Renaissance%20Galleria/119/79/28)

season of couture_3

So Natzuka and me went to the Seasons of Couture store at the Renaissance Galleria. She was supposed to do the pictures and I thought she will choose the ones, that go best together for the pictures. As she asked me wich ones I liked the most… I totally was surprised and super happy and for sure 2 black designs by Azull Ash and  YK jumped into my eyes, as my most favourite color is black. Natzuka chose 2 great contrast colors to the black by ghee and SoliDea FoliEs and I got more and more excited what the pics will look like. She showed me some ideas of RL graphics and pictures, what she had in mind and my jaw dropped down. The ideas looked amazing and with Natzuka’s skills I was sure, if someone can pull that out, it is her. But we still needed 2 more outfits to make a total of 4 pics, with always the both of us and it really was a hard choice with all the amazing creations that we saw. All of a sudden Natzuka pointed on a pink dress and I saw her face expression… she looked lightly evil with a huge grin as her finger pointed towards a wonderful design of Bliss Couture but in pink! I got scared… she knows my pink allergy and I really thought she wanna torture me, but her face became all smooth and nice again, as she said: “I like this one” and my muscles relaxed again. She looked further and asked me what I think about a light green even some teal looking color to the pink and pulled me towards a design of Sonatta Morales. I thought it is a tough combination but if she can see it in front of her inner eye, I trust her. You can see exactly that combination on the picture above and it was one of the most amazing pictures I ever saw, so yes this woman really knows her job and I again got proved it did right by trusting her. For the last picture she decided to go on a gold and white combination, a very elegant one by Countdown and Azull Ash. If I look over all this 4 pictures I guess we found a real nice mixture that show, how many different styles you can find at the Seasons of Couture. Anyways if formal, elegant, avantgarde, casual or what ever you look for, you always will find something that matches your styling ideas.

For the credits of the outfits you can take a look at the actual BoSL Magazin (http://magazine.thebestofsl.com/fashion/june-2013)

Thanks a lot Persia for the opportunity <3

Thanks so much Natzuka, for this incredible amazing pictures and the time we spent for making them. It is always fun to work or hang out with you 🙂
