New Releases and a unbelievable Christmas Special at Mea Culpa!!!

Yes it is true, Tatanka Kaligawa, designer of Mea Culpa, again created 4 new designs for Mea Culpa. 2 of them I want to show you today. The other 2 left I will for sure blog here also so keep tuned!

The first one I wanna showcase today is the “Bionic Symbiosis” which we can see also in the first picture above 🙂

“Bionic Symbiosis” is a wonderful gown that again shows the incredible skills and ideas of Tatanka Kaligawa if it comes to new ideas of fashion and couture. The dress it self has a very tight dress and skirt beginning that ends in a firework of huge flexible prims the more it goes down to the ground. The color is made in a wide scale of green and black. The layers are not made of a simple plain texture, it is a wonderful combination of different ornaments and colors that make this gown to something special, to a piece of art we know the designs of Mea Culpa for. The wrist sleeves are also decorated with 2 huge wrist prims that repeat the main theme of the dress in a very interesting way. All the attached prims are kinds wavy and for sure the huge and extraordinary hat add another ‘wow’ effect to the whole design.

The second new release is called “Wind of Change” and it really brings in some fresh wind onto the fashion industry 😉

‘This gown is made for a real ladie’s body… very elegant but also extravagant! The awesome combination of pink and black will let every fashionistas heart beat higher 😉


Let’s take a closer look on all that wonderful details… the basic skirt layer is an opaque tight pencil skirt that goes down to the ground. Spikes decorate the creation on the right hand side leg and add a lightly dangerous and goth style. The top under the jacket has a light transparent around the basic laced texture. The jacket reminds me on an old english uniform jacket even if it is made like a modern bolero jacket 😉 A huge, pink neck collar the puffy arm sleeves and the wonderful hat set this design also for a perfect winter outfit! at th belly button you have a nother detailed prim attachment with a huge purple ge in its center. If you take a look from the side or back you will realize how big that flexible black parts in your back are! The hat has a fur seam and the spikes are repeated from a few tentacle looking long and flexible parts that are longer on the right side then on the left of the hat..again a nice non symmetric detail… 😉

If you look at the texture of the jacket you can see that the Mea Culpa designs are really more than just clothing that every single part is made with love to the detail. All filigree black ornaments the shading of colors, the lights and shadows… simply amazing!

As I said that are only 2 of the newest designs of Tatanka Kaligawa…so stay tuned the other 2 I will review soon 😉 If you cannot wait you can also peek at the Mea Culpa Mainstore!

Now for something special… Mea Culpa decided to have a Christmas Special! Every Wednesday there will be 2 gowns set down to 50%!!! Yes you heard right… half prize! Also one pairs of shoes will be 50%. All 2 items are available 7 days before they change again on the next Wednesday till christmas.

Show Review of Angel Dessous and PurpleMoon

Last Sunday I was walking a show for Envision that featured designs of Angel Dessous, PurpleMoon and hair from Tukinowaguma. I really enjoyed my outfits and just wanted to show them 😉

My first outfit was from Angel Dessous and is called “Lian” here shown in the color ‘nightflower’. This great asian design leads to dreams with all its wonderful details and accessories…

The basic blue toned texture is full of wonderful little ornaments in blue and green tones. The gown looks parted in 2 parts one lower skirt and one upper that starts with that great prim attachment in the front, wich is lightly unsymmetrical to the right hand side. Another great attachment we find can see on the chest. Sweet little light ruffled parts make the seam of the top and only one neat line over the right shoulder connects the font and back of the dress. For sure the huge and great head part is one of the highlights for this dress and underlines the asian character perfectly. For the jewelry I chose the incredible “Victorian Secret” earrings from Finesmith. For the skin I used one of the new Glam affair ones out of the “Castalia” line in the natural tone. The lips are a different layer that blackliquid gave me once and this lips matched the outfit  perfectly. The hair comes from Tukinowaguma and is called “Princess” in ebony.

The second outfit I was allowed to showcase came from PurpleMoon and is called “Queen of Hearts”. The name is program for this neat dress ;).  A short and very sexy dress. Poulet Koenkamp again shows us her amazing creativity if it comes to designing. The main color of this dress for sure has to be red 😉 and it is not just a simple plain texture… way not…it is a firework of red tones and glitter and glimmering shades! The top is made like a corset with bare shoulders that let the possibility for great jewelry like the “In the Flash – Shpitz” from Finesmith.

The great “Disturbia Collection” veil and the “Sweet Cocktail” bracelets I am wearing also are from Finesmith 🙂 Thanks to Yula who has those amazing ideas for extravagant jewelry!!! A total ‘head turner’ is the big, huge head-piece that also carries little, neat hearts to underline the theme of the dress and to repeat the floating hearts that surround the little, short balloon skirt.

5 big roses decorate the higher forehead and make also an amazing detail of the whole outfit! The “Metallic Silver Nails” are made by PurpleMoon as well as the “Kis” hair style that matches wonderful to the whole outfit 🙂

My 3rd and last outfit for that show was also from PurpleMoon and it was one of the amazing bridal gowns – “Nefertiti”

This wonderful white piece of art is another masterpiece of Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon.  A wonderful, dreamy flexible veil goes down in the back nearly to the hips. The top is decorated with amazing detailed ruffles at the chest. The dress it self starts very tight and shows off the perfect shaped body of the bride 😉  The more it goes to the ground the wider it becomes and a nother train that follows your steps over the ground smoothly.

The “Metallic Silver Nails” and the “Era” hairstyle here in platinum are also from PurpleMoon. Earrings and bracelets are again from Finesmith. The skin also is from the Glam Affair “Castalia” line

I hope you enjoyed my show review 😉 If you wanna see more of the great designs made byAngel Dessous PurpleMoon, Finesmith or Tukinowaguma, just take the next free limo to their mainstores.

(Picture provided by Noah Bodenhall, Photographer: Mikael Charisma)

Tomorrow is the day of the day for Noah Bodenhall, fabulous designer of Divinity. The Divinity Mainstore got a makeover and appears now in a fantastic light 🙂

The huge store will let every ladies heart higher… you have enough space for a relaxed shopping trip. The whole store is made with an eye for the detail and very realistic looking.

If you enter the store to the left hand side you will find that great ‘reception’ that provides you all information you need and for tomorrows opening there is also places a wonderful free gift that you should not miss!!!

To the right hand side you have a neat lounge where you can sit down and let the whole store impress you. Also that seems the corner for the custom work section as I saw a special office table there where you can discuss your very personal likes and needs.

What really caught my eyes are the wonderful displays where you can see what you buy. The items are showcased in wonderful glass cabinets with beautiful lightning and behind every display you have a wonderful pic that shows a possibility to wear this amazing jewelry.

But lets take a closer look on a few of the wonderful designs of Noah Bodenhall, designer of Divinity.

Did thieves ever look so sexy? 😉 Just kidding. I was tempted by this amazing chain set calles “Pythagore” This set is a totally new creation that was made in 3 different tones. Gold, silver and a smoked silver version.

For the necklace you have the option of a long or a short one, so you can wear it simply to all and everything. This filigree chain parts take wonderful in each other and show off how sexy and elegant simple chains can be if they are made with such a great eye for the detail and a wonderful skill for textures!

The eye for the detail you also can see in the back of the neck where Noah Bodenhall closes nearly all his chains with the fleur de lys, a nice again very detailed trade mark that he chose for his brand Divinity!

The “Moon & Stars” necklaces representing the theme of the opening day, and new image of Divinity. A long necklace that goes down to the belly with an amazing twisted chain that carry this wonderful moon, star and gem spherule.

You can choose from different colors of the little gem that connects the tar and the moon. This necklace is a wonderful accessory for every look anyways of casual or elegant!

Up next we come to the wonderful “Panther” Set. This set was totally revamped completely from the original. It comes also in 3 different noble metals.

Again we have the option to choose between gold, silver and smoked silver. The smoked silver is lightly darker than the normal silver and is a nice variation for different outfits!

But not only full sets are provided… even the little parts have their own spotlight!

For example the beautiful “Bubbles” rings. So neat and detailed and an awesome firework of great colors!

The last creation for today is the wonderful “Charmes” set that was totally overworked from a to z 😉 What caught my yes are all the little parts that are connected in different colors of noble metals like the little shoe, the tiny little horseshoes that again show off the love for the detail of Noah Bodenhall!

For the opening they will have a huge event from 9AM to 9PM on sunday the 7th of november. The program you can read on the texture above.. and I know that I will definitely make my way to the new Divinity Mainstore to be part of that great happening!!!

PurpleMoon – News and Showreview ;)

Today I have a little combination of a new release and some great outfits that I was allowed to showcase for the amazing PurpleMoon/Finesmith fashion show at BLVD. For first lets take a look on the new “Tango” outfit.

This outfit you can wear in 2 different versions. The first possibility is a sweet wide top that has an amazing huge neck collar.

The pants can be worn with or without the leg sleeves. The pants are made of  a dark grey / black texture that let imagine a light rough-looking fabric and the white line adds a wonderful elegant touch. The neat hat also is part of the outfit!

For the second version you can wear we also see that there is nother color available for the “Tango” outfit 😉 Here I just took off the wide top prim and the leg sleeves. The hat I changed to one of the new fantastic hair attachments, named “Era” that come with the perfect matching hairbases! So stay tuned for the new releases that will happen 😉

Last weekend the BLVD Agency had an amazing show showing off amazing creationd from PurpleMoon and Finesmith. It was an awesome combination of dreamy outfits and perfectly matching elegant and stylish looking jewelry.

My first outfit was a stunning dark blue gown named “Sue”. This great evening gown is the perfect outfit for an elegant night out. The amazing skirt falls down to the ground and moves behind you with every step. The aerial ruffles that decorate the chest make beautiful filigree looking touch. The neat little blue flowers are amazingly detailed and light the dark blue perfect. Another great highlight we have with the head part. A huge headpart that repeats the roses of the dress and has a little train in the back. Perfect for every fashionista who likes to turn heads!

As it was made for, the “Tension” set from Finesmith looks as a perfect addition to this stunning gown. The half round earrings that become smaller to the end like a half-moon decorate your ears. The same theme you have for the bracelet where 2 of that ‘half moons’ surround your wrist. FOr the perfect finish I added the “Metallic Silver” nails from PurpleMoon.

Another great outfit I was wearing for the show was the “Zasha” dress in bronze. A very tight dress that accents a well-shaped fashionistas body 😉 The horizontal stripes of the main texture adds a modern look to the whole dress. The top is shoulder free and makes great room for a huge edgy necklace like the “Kitsch Couture” necklace from Finesmith. The black gloves and the mermaid looking skirt prim in black make a nice frame where the texture of the dress is fantastic highlighted.

The incredible “Kitsch Couture” necklace and bracelet, made by Finesmith are the perfect addition if it comes to the jewelry part for this dress. The 3 different gold colors go perfect with the bronze and black texture of the dress that has neat little ornaments if you take a closer look. Together with the “Sun” face tattoo, made by White Widow and the “Invicta” hairstyle from Miamai the whole outfit was perfect for the runway 🙂

But if you make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore you can see way more of Poulet Koenkamp’s creation and you will really have a hard time to think wich one you get first :p
