“And I wish that this World would embrace you…”

TUNES

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

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

I’m waiting, just waiting
Answers to return
Don’t let your dreams deny you
When it’s time to learn
I’m standing, I’m waiting

Bones will feed the dirt
Hunters and Prey
You got to run away!

Wicca’s Originals @ The Engine Room // March 2021

Wicca’s Originals @ Engine Room // March 20th – April 20th

The Parthena Top by Wicca’s Originals challenges the idea that Steampunk styles needs to be so modest. The prominent folded collar with the big stamped metal faux buttons of the plunging neckline keeps with the ‘overcoat’ aesthetic, but that’s where the similarities end. The teasing crop-top cut of the top and the single, delicate clasp in the front show off plenty of midriff, which is perfect for showing off any tattoos, piercings, or other accessories decorating your midsection. This smart, sexy top dares to be bold and sends the message that the wearer isn’t as repressed as the Victorian-inspired genre might suggest. Comes in 10 color palettes and is fitted for Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, and Legacy Perky bodies.

Travelling through the Pages of Time

TUNES

Several hundred years before
A gambler and a monk embarked
On a long trek through the endless prairies of the North
They had a fierce debate
About God and chance and fate
And to resolve it, agreed a game of cards indeed be played
The game went on all day
And through the next and next they played
And around them a shelter was built to shield the rain
A street around the shelter formed
Then a church, a house, a bar
New Albion today
With bustling streets, machines, cafes
And the nice, the wise, the eccentric and insane
The mafia’s run by
A red haired dwarf with just one eye
Whose affairs he decides with a pair of silver dice
Over the Zeppelin Union Pilots
A castrati boss presides
And we hear his song each afternoon as he flies by
There’s prisons made of lead
And gargoyles of iron shreds

“Leaving lepidoptera… Please, don’t touch the display,
Little boy, aha cute! Moving to the next aisle we have
Arachnida, the spiders, our… Finest collection.
This friendly little devil is the heptothilidi,
Unfortunately harmless. Next to him, the nasty licosa
Raptoria, his tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of
The skin (laugh). And here, my prize, the Black
Widow. Isn’t she lovely?… And so deadly. Her kiss is
Fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake.
You see her venom is highly neurotoxic, which is to say
That it attacks the central nervous system causing
Intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in
Breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions
And, finally… Death. You know what I think I love the
Most about her is her inborn need to dominate,
Possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation
Of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the
Species she kills and eats him…(laugh) oh, she is
Delicious… And I hope he was! Such power and dignity
… Unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a
Slice of personal philosophy, I feel that man has ruled
This world as a stumbling dimented child-king long
Enough! And as his empire crumbles, my precious Black
Widow
shall rise as his most fitting successor!”

“You want change with no sacrifice. You want peace with no struggle. The world doesn’t work like that.”

[- David, Allegiant, 2016 -]

Germany seems to be weird sometimes, especially our government. Now that we have our Covid numbers going down constantly, even with the new virus variations… they can’t wait until the numbers are as low as the experts ask for – no we have to break open schools and kindergartens as fast as we can. I mea i see the problems, do not get me wrong, but what does it help if we are back to sky high numbers in the next 3 weeks and then have to lock down everything again?!? Can we not just wait like 2 weeks more until the numbers are low enough before we plan things like that? Especially as it was clear, that the numbers dropped really fast when the schools finally were closed again? Would it not make sense to put some effort into the internet and into getting the needed hardware to the kids who are not having any still? The online platform for Bavarian schools (Mebis) looks and acts like they would have been made in the Stone Age some when and instead of working on it it feels like they counted on the fact that the summer will kill the virus and it is gone after that. They had oe year now to fix things and besides the fact they allowed Microsoft Teams, nothing really has changed – and that wasn’t the work of our government *facepalms* It seems more important to hold on exams and schedules instead of taking care of our kids and their health. We all know now, that the kids do not get symptoms but they can carry the virus around secretly and infect all their family. I just don’t understand all those rules and requirements anymore. WE can have the kids in school, shoulder on shoulder, but we cannot have theaters and cinemas open who definitely have way better hygiene management for infection control, than any school has – at our school we do not even have warm water for the kids to wash their hands as requested. But sure, lets open the schools again for 3 or 4 weeks to again close down the whole country as the new virus variations push the numbers up again – If they keep acting like that and with the not working vaccine concept (we simply do not have enough yet and some do not have a 100% protection – not to mention there is not even one yet for kids under 16 years, which is allowed officially) we will go back and forth until summer 2022 🙁

Anyways, lets take a look on todays pictures and designs 😉

Again I am in a cyberpunk mood – no wonder we just had the Mainframe event! I am super sorry for posting this so late but lately my RL is completely upside down. My mom got a new knee, and I still have to take care of her, cook, clean and walk her dog at least 2 times a day while I try to shuffle my work around as much as I can. Sometimes I am just dead in the evening when I am done with all my day work and I instantly fall asleep on the couch even if I made me some coffee to stay awake for some SL work.

But I still love making pictures and I try my best to not come too much behind with my blogging schedule 😉

Like I said sadly the Mainframe event is already over, but many of the releases I am wearing were made for that and now should have found their ways to the designers main stores I suppose.

Wicca’s Originals @ The Warehouse Sale // January 2021

Wicca’s Originals @ The Warehouse Sale // January 23rd – February 18th

Wicca’s Originals has done it again with the Fox Glasses. Merging form and function, this set of eyewear dares to be bold and brings something fresh to the table. These will match any punk aesthetic well, rejecting what have become boring norms when it comes to eyewear. Whether you need them for eyesight, to accessorize, or to do some field work and want something that looks cooler than bulky safety goggles, the Fox Glasses fit the bill. The base frame and ear supports are made of a rigid, durable alloy rather than plastic, designed to hold up to more intense wear and heat. The lens frames extends from the lens to shield your eye on the sides, providing protection from dust or glare. The affixed flip-up UV shades provide shielding from intense sources of light, like a welding torch, or staring into the sun, if you’re into that. A faux ‘power button’ fills the gap between the frames, preventing any shrapnel from settling in the gap between. The Fox Glasses come in 10 colors and metals, and are unrigged, intended to fit any gender and any body.

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS // November 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS // November 12th – December 8th

The new Miriam Boots by Wicca’s Originals bring a fresh take on footwear. The most prominent feature is the blocky, thick platform and heel which features some unique embellishments. The holes drilled through them not only makes the boots weigh less, but also could be tied or chained together to hobble the wearer for fun. The metal bracings on the platform and the heel complement the rings of those gaps and are matched by bracings on the toe and shin. The metal addition gives it a soft ‘punk’ aesthetic, but what really gives these boots some edge is the faux tearing in them. The seeming ripped material reveals a smooth, flexible polyfiber mesh underneath, and on the other side conceals the zipper line in a flattering manner. The boot material and metal embellishments come in 10 colors, for Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, Hourglass and Physique feet.

“The deal was I wouldn’t kill you. I reckon you got a bargain, don’t you?”

Again I do have some amazing designs released at the Necrotize event! As mentioned before Necrotize is an event run by Second Life Syndicate. But who is Second Life Syndicate? The 3 genius minds behind that are Ylva Korhonen, Akira Voorhees and Helena Stringer – certainly they do have an amazing team and people that collaborate with them, but those 3 are the heads behind events like “Engine Room”and “Necrotize” and many more. Second Life Syndicate is not just only an event group, they are as well having a huge website where they provide latest news from the grid like sales, other popular events, freebies and group gifts from so many different stores. What I do like a lot is that they do have a lot of galleries, which make it easy to look through before you have to TP around yourself – I know… sometimes I am lazy, but I really enjoy that! You really should set a book mark for https://secondlifesyndicate.com/ to be informed and not miss out on any awesome deals!

Now lets take a closer look at today’s style with all those amazing new releases at Necrotize…

The amazing outfit was made by AsteroidBox. It already looked amazing on the vendor, but when I unpacked it I found – besides the color HUD – a super cool style HUD! What a genuine idea to give the possibility of having the lower pants hide-able for higher boots or the arms parts so that you can add armor or, like I did, the incredible “Dark Night Arms” from DRD! Speaking of those arms… they do come in so many different colors and you even have some bloody ones there, too!

What as well caught my eye when I saw it, was the amazing jawbone cover from Reliquary. A metal lower jaw with so many amazing details… simply awesome – you even have some metal teeth! The scary face tattoo was made by Rainbow Sundae and it perfectly matches with the body tattoo coming from Persephone – both Necrotize exclusives as well. You still have time to go over and look at that amazing venue, built by Walton F. Wainwright, owner and designer of ContraptioN. It did remind me of a combination of the Alien movies and some of the good old H.R. Giger designs, which cartainly became popular as well with the Alien movies again. If I can find a time when the event isn’t that crowded, I really would like to just snap some pictures there, too!
