Finesmith Muse 2012 – Semi Finale Review

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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.

The End

Personal Show Review: AVENUE – GizzA lรผks

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

End of summer… this more and more gets clear as the days really get short and cold now. Thats why I decided to pull out my bike one last time for this year and enjoy the last sun beams even if it was not that warm :p

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 youย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚ You should try it!
