Yesterday, on the 27th of November, the semi finals for the Finesmith Muse 2012 took place. I was allowed to be one of the lucky ones to be part of it . We got a very nice challenge and rules for our styling.
Yula send out a NC with the requests she had for all of the contestants. The theme was fantasy but still being human, so not having fantasy skins… some people told me that this is my theme to go wild with horns and wings and stuff… so I wanted to go completely different and not doing what people expect from me :p. So I took the risk to go for cute and fairytale *grins* rare but there 😉
As well I wanted to redo as many jewelry attachments to use them as a different thing as they usually were thought for. So the great “Victorian Secrets” earrings became my dolly ballet shoes, The “Jellyfish” headpiece became the dolly skirt and as well parts of the bracelets. Then a windup dolly needs a wind up key so I just took the “Victorian Secret” necklace, turned it around and made it way bigger before I attached it to my back ;). The collar inspired by Blackliquid went on my head, got turned around and turned into a hat 🙂
To make the fantasy fairytale complete I had the idea of a lonely sad windup dolly locked away in her glass cage and my genius sister Rhonda Pennell helped me with the story and proper english 😉 Thank you sissy!
Few of us can resist the magical power of a full moon shining brightly in the otherwise dark hours of the night…for some, it means sleepless wandering, for others, a metamorphosis. But for one single doll, a wind-up doll locked in a glass cage, it means a taste of freedom.
You see, our lovely doll, Wicca Merlin, was betrayed by the young, dashing prince she once loved. The prince was very charming and swept Wicca off her feet from the start, but he soon met another woman who was a beautiful but cunning witch, and he began spending more time with her and less with Wicca.
Poor Wicca! Her sweet, innocent soul unable to withstand the raging waves of jealousy, she became enraged and locked the prince away, letting him out only once every month on a full moon – for it was the most romantic time that Wicca could imagine spending with him. But the young witch found out, and before long, she and the prince schemed against our doll to doom her to the same fate.
Cursed, Wicca must now endure long, lonely hours in her glass cage, its door unlocking only on a moonlit night. But she must return before sunrise when the door once again closes, or she will perish in an instant.
Tonight the door opens once more, and our doll steps out in all of her shining Finesmith beauty. She takes a breath of the fresh, cool air, spreading her arms decorated with “Buckleup Jellyfish” bracelets like wings unfolding, and slowly begins to twirl. Her “Jellyfish”dolly skirt, her “Victorian Secret”ballet shoes, her “Leah”corset and even the hair with the “Blackliquid” hat, all sparkling and glistening under the moonlight, making her feel beautiful – and hopeful that perhaps this time, this very night, at last she might find a true love to rescue her from the confines of the glass cage forever, for only true love can break the curse.
The hours pass by, and lovely Wicca enjoys rare moments of happiness as she runs through the forest, and once even passes by a small pond where frogs croak softly by the edge and fish chase each other below the water, all doused in a silver moonlight glow. Or is the glow coming from our doll herself? She gently dips a finger in the water and giggles, as tiny circles spread from the center and grow larger, momentarily distorting her reflection.
But morning comes quickly, and in growing despair Wicca realises that she must once again return to the glass box. A single tear drops from her eye like a liquid diamond…She turns around once more, then steps inside as the door begins to close. As she prepares to go to sleep for another month, a soft glow remains, emanating from her Finesmith outfit – a glow of hope for eventual salvation.

On the 12th of November, AVENUE Models presented an awesome show featuring the designs of GizzA.
The set was made in an awesome way where the audience was actually sitting ‘in the middle of the runway’. That means the runway was going through between the seats. It was a very active show with a lot of movement, that I quite enjoyed as it was something different then just the one way out and back runways.
The designs were a great mixture of casual, city chic and formal. On the 3 pics you can see the amazing outfits I was allowed to wear. At this point I have to thank Nala Kurka who did this cool pictures of me during the show 🙂

At least I had to try my awesome new leather pants from Lapointe, that I found at the Vintage Fair and what better way then have fun with a biker look 🙂
I searched for a nice sim that fits to my cute biker look and I did not think I will find something if I type ‘Route 66’ in search… but I was showed different. I never thought that so many really cool and great sims are out there where you can have fun ad ride a bike in SL *grins* I really enjoyed it to hang out there and roam those long streets and highways 🙂 You should try it!

Back to the 80’s… for me that is back to my youth…
How does not remember those very tight carrot jeans, elastic leggings,sequins, wild long hair with lots of hairspray, David Bowie, Billy Idol, Kim Wilde… and all those horrible neon colors we all complain about today*grins*
But in the end it was super huge fun and the music was great – I still enjoy at least the music*laughs*
So for sure I went crazy as I saw the contribution of Elan at the Vintage Fair 2011... 80’s<<< vintage *sighs* oh man I am getting old…
Nevertheless, “Rockin in fur and sequins” is the name of the cute outfit that Elan made for the Vintage Fair 2011. You can purchase it in different colors – for sure the neon ones as well. The right arm always is covered by a huge fur attachment and a wonderful shoulder prim. The top always has 2 colors, one for the basic and one for the stripes. The short mini skirt shines in wonderful sequins all over 😉
So make your way to the Vintage Fair 2011 and get your trip back to the wild and colorful 80’s with Elan!!!
Vintage Fair 2011 and for sure yula Finesmith made some very cute and wonderful contributions 🙂

GizzA made a wonderful and cute contribution to the Vintage Fair. The “Steampunk” is a firework of great textures and primwork. All the little additional accessories give this outfit this wonderful steampunk flair. The glasses, the hat, the wonderful ankle boots with this sweet ruffles. For the textures as well GizzA chose the typical colors and fabrics 🙂 Again you can see the love for the details if you take a closer look at the clothing layers… the leather stripes over the knees, the delicate lines of the corsage in the front, the net gloves and the cute shoulder ruffle… simply wonderful!!! So make your way to the Vintage Fair and get your personal GizzA “Steampunk” outfit 😉
