MVW 2013 Russia Formal full

Miss Virtual World 2013 – Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks. One evening gown and one national costume for each lady. Every year when I saw the MVW finale it was an exciting moment to see the results, that designers and models worked on for so many weeks. Last year I took the challenge to make a full catalogue of all the gowns and costumes. The idea must have inspired some bloggers this year and they started to do that for the MVW 2013 designs. I decided for my own not to do the same again and just would like to showcase my personal favourites. First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order

:)

The wonderful deep red gown with the rich and detailed corset for Miss V Russia 2013, Dolcestella Draconia, was made by Enzo Champagne, owner and designer of Champagne! Sparkling Couture. The “Russian Passion” gown really reflects a style that i can imagine on a russian high society party. The huge red skirt is decorated with some delicate gems while the corsage is made with an amazing texture rich of gold and very filigree, detailed created. The amazing flowers that are going down from the waist over the skirt add a very elegant touch as well. The wonderful headpiece as well is part of the “Russian Passion” . The sheer lace that covers the eyes is hold by amazing 3 flowers that repeat the wonderful flowers of the skirt. The “Russian Passion” you can find at the Champagne! Sparkling Couture Mainstore together with some more amazing new releases.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Conflict of the Elements

The Fire-Water Conflict:

Fire and Water are the perfect opposites and both are necessary for our internal harmony. Fire is hot, dry, and light and Water is cold, moist, and heavy. Fire rules the future and Water rules the past. Fire is hierarchical and Water is inclusive, familial. Fire is impatient and Water is patient. Fire is intuitive and Water is imaginative. The opposites are almost endless. (Ingrid Naiman, 2008)

As I saw this 2 designs of Bubble Cyberstar, owner and artistic designer of Bubble’s Designs, I immediately was in love with them. I never before saw such strong and elemental themed creations. Each of the dresses, the “Fire” and the “Water” dress have animated water and fire effects. The water runs down the skirt and for the “Fire” you have floating fire textures on the corsage and the skirt as well. All the prims, like the wonderful waterdrops that decorate the arms and the wonderful texture layers make both of that outfits really to art pieces instead of only dresses to wear πŸ˜‰

And as if MyStiCa Matova, owner and designer of Bizarre Hair,Β  would have smelled it she sent me 2 hair styles from her called “Heaven” & “Hell”. She could not have sent me better ones as they totally hit the nail on the head with their styles according to the “Fire” and “Water” dresses from Bubble’s Designs!

Heaven

The “Hell” Hair, I modified a but I took the white version and colored it to light blue as I wanted to match the outfit. I always liked the idea of strange and extraordinary hair and really at Bizarre Hair you can find exactly that. The awesome jewelry was made byΒ  Maylo Designs for both hairstyles.

Hell

The “Hell” hairstyle comes with the amazing little fires hold by the horned demon. The hair as well has a face and body light that makes the super evil demon look πŸ™‚ . Like I said I never saw such kick ass hair that has such a special and unique style with such ideas like Bizarre Hair has πŸ˜‰

A special thank you goes to Dahriel my sweet little bother. I was trying to realize a fight between “Fire” & “Water” and “Heaven” & “Hell”. I drove me crazy since it never looked like I wanted it to. I was trying for weeks now and then Dahriel came into my life and I was knowing, if someone can do it he can. He made the poses and took the picture. Right in time for my rezzday today he gave me the pic and it was one of my best SL rezzday gift! Thank you little bro <3 !!!

Breathtaking News & Timeless Favourites by Mea Culpa & PosESioN!!! Starring Dahriel & Wicca

(Wicca Merlin: Mea Culpa – Back Mamba & Dahriel: Mea Culpa – Painless Obedience; Pose: PosESioN – Hamlet)

Lately my sweet little brother Dahriel, owner and creator of PosESioN, came across that we both liked a lot what the other did and we talked about to do some pics together. I adore his picture skills for a very long time and I was very happy, when he told me he would love to do some weird stylings and art with me together. All ofΒ  sudden he IMed me if I could style anything with Mea Culpa and purple, as he wanted to wear the “Illusory Wisdome” outfit from Mea Culpa. I was thinking on one of my long time favourites of Mea Culpa, the “Hopeless Illusion”. It was one of the very first creations of Tatanka Kaligawa, owner and designer of Mea Culpa. For the poses we used some of the latest releases of PosESioN. As Dahriel and me got dressed he rezzed one of his new skyboxes for the picture and I got huge eyes… The whole skybox was in purple and black and had a look like it could have been a location of a Tim Burton movie! Dahriel and me discovered that we both like Tim Burton a lot – another thing we share as so many others, that we discovered before and I felt even more how much I love my little brother πŸ˜‰

For the next picture we decided to go with one of the latest releases from Mea Culpa, the “X-treme Mirrors”.

(Wicca Merlin & Dahriel: Mea Culpa – X-treme Mirrors; Poses: PosESioN)

The “X-treme Mirrors” is part of the X-treme line of Mea Culpa, a special line, that combines fetish elements with high fashion designs. Again Dahriel rezzed one of his various skyboxes and again it was perfect for the whole scenery… he has the eye for the special detail. More and more I enjoyed our evening that we had together… all the stylings, like for the “X-treme Mirror” I had an idea and he came up with another one, or the other waxy round and we started to mix and match our ideas according to the other… I felt like in heaven. The wonderful mirrors on the “X-treme Mirrors”brought us to the idea to make the picture like there would be a mirror in the middle of the picture. Dahriel mirrored the pose he had for himself and the room as well and with all the amazing details of the “X-treme Mirrors”, the glasses, the wonderful headpiece and the amazing textures the whole picture became art for me.

(Wicca Merlin: Mea Culpa – Oppressive Prophecy & Dahriel: Mea Culpa – El Matador; Pose: PosESioN – Matador)

Dahriel got he wonderful “El Matador” outfit from Mea Culpa and I had immediately the idea, the “Oppressive Prophecy” would make a perfect match for another couple shot with Dahriel. The gold decorations of both outfits are just like made for ech other. Both outfits have a black basic and with all the amazing prims of the “Oppressive Prophecy” I go the idea of if a fashion matador and his fashion victim. Dahriel loved the idea and started immediately to create the perfect pose. As we thought about a location we agreed because of all the black and gold tines we wanted to have sand and rocks with kinda an arena style for the amazing “Matador” pose from PosESioN.

I would like to thank my little brother Dahriel for an amazing afternoon and evening. For a long time I felt the first time that there is a soul that is somehow connected to mine with all the weird stylings and picture ideas. Our minds are so close that sometimes it scares me πŸ˜‰ , but I could not think of a better little brother than Dahriel! This was a wonderful and amazing time with such incredible pictures and I really hope that this was just a start and we can do many more like this little brother!!!

The soft pink and darker shade of rose make a very sophisticated look. With the huge prims that go up and down from the waist, the whole gown gets a light artistic look as well.

The italian community was always very strong represented in many MVW challenges… we had Mimmi Boa 2009 winning the crown, Mavi Beck in 2010 in the top 10,Β Angels Milena in 2011 in the top 12 and Anna Sapphire as winner of the MVW 2012 crown and again Italy was able to place on the winner stairs with a 1st runner-up in 2013 again!

The wonderful formal gown for Natzuka Millandrovic, Miss Italy 2013, was made by Mila Tatham, genius designer and owner of SoliDea FoliEs. What caught my eyes most of this dress was the incredible skirt. All those ruffles on the first view look like they would have been added totally confused… but if you take a second look you can see the incredible idea of this ruffle attachment. The wonderful bodice is covered with little white, silver and blue gemstones and the blue belt make a wonderful accent on the white gown. The ruffles are brought back above the side of the chest. For me the combination of white and blue with all this ruffles and gems made a perfect formal gown for a MVW runner-up πŸ˜‰

Are you ready for “The Abyss”?

FetishCouture-Twins

“The Abyss” – One of Mea Culpa‘s latest releases. Tatanka Kaligawa is working on his X-treme line for Mea Culpa. The idea behind the X-treme line is to bring the fetish style up to a high couture level. Britney Spear, Christina Aguilera and Madonna already discovered the success of combining this 2 styles. Both showed that latex and vinyl can be very sexy if you know how to arrange the outfit. More and more the music industry uses high fashion and couture to make their concerts to huge events with outfits, light and performances. They raised the bar for stage outfits a lot and many try to follow that trend πŸ™‚

For many fetish only has a naughty touch and all just think about the backyard dominas… but fetish itself can be so much more than that. Tatanka dares to break the old stereotypes and shows that he can bring the fetish couture to a higher level. With delicate textures and ideas for designs he shows that you can do so much more that just ‘dungeon’ outfits. He makes it happen that fetish components on his creations make them ready for the huge runways. Tatanka exactly knows the very thin border that he walks perfectly on with for example “The Abyss” outfit. The basic texture layers are again textured with amazing fabrics that have a sexy touch with all the well set holes πŸ˜‰ the prim attachments complete the straight and couture look in an amazing way. The waist attachment with the long lines hanging down, the cool glasses and the crossed lines at the front neck, that remind on a corset back are wonderful details that show the skills and abilities of Tatanka for creating unique and high fashion designs. What caught my attention a lot was the huge head-piece. The combination of horns, chains and fabrics add a light goth touch as well but with a special couture taste.

For me it has a very special meaning, as I never was a mainstream girl. I always looked left and right of the mainstream and liked the unusual and extraordinary. As I started modeling, I was told as long as I always try to swim against the mainstream as a little fashion rebel, it will bring me nowhere. For a long time I kinda felt like the ugly duck beside all the swans in the fashion world. But it seemed never so bad, that I really wanted to change it. How could I change my self, what I think and what I feel, without loosing myself? So I decided to stick to myself and grow inside of what I felt, thought and liked. Not everyone liked what I did, but more and more it became a trademark of my self to be different, to be the little ‘freak’. The sentence “Hell you always have to twist outfits to make them part of yourself” or ” It is nice to see a different view of my designs” more and more became compliments instead or complaints for me. On that long way of developing myself, my style and to realize my own visions of fashion and style I met a few people who were close to my ideas and my mind. One of the is LovelyMiwako7399 Menna (http://eclecticmiwa.wordpress.com/2013/01/20/fetish-couture-twins/). She is wild, crazy, loud, cute, sweet, creative, young, fresh, provocative and one of the best friends you can have. Lovely became a very close friend for me and we share a lot, not only a loose friendship… we share ideas, minds, tastes and ideals. There is not many in a virtual environment like SL you feel so close to and trust so much.Β  She always was a rebel with her ideas, styles and creations as well and so it was a great honor to do this picture together with her as the ‘Fetish Couture Twins’, she as well did the picture for this post.

Dare to get out of dusted stereotypes! Dare to stay true to yourself! Dare to be different!

If you take a look at the Mea Culpa Mainstore you can see how πŸ˜‰ with the new X-treme line at the basement!

Jewelry by Jake, a small but wonderful oasis for those who love the excellent, elegant and beautiful jewelry. Today I have the great pleasure, to showcase 2 of the latest releases of Jewelry by Jake. The first set, that you can see on the picture above, is the “Moulin Rouge” set.

My personal favourites of MVW2013 – Formal Gown of Turkey 2013 by Tres Beau & Chop Zuey

MVW - Miss Turkey Formal Full

Miss Virtual World 2013 – Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks.

I decided for my own not to do the same again and just would like to showcase my personal favourites. First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order

:)

The formal gown of Miss Turkey 2013, Miss Nice Wildrose, was made by Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau. What caught my attention on this gown was the fantastic texture of the bodice and the amazing light transparent looking ruffles or the skirt. The texture of the upper body really shows how much time and eye for the detail Kimmera puts into her creations. You can look as close as you want you will not find any seams, even if it is a real difficult and filigree texture. The ornaments and the basis are tone in tone and paired with the ruffles and the gloves the whole gown has a super elegant look. The shoulders are blank. This fact adds a light sexy touch as well and leaves a lot of room for amazing jewelry.

Talking of the jewelry… The stunning jewelry set was made by Belle Roussel, owner and designer of Chop Zuey. She created a wonderful set that underlines the turkish touch for that gown perfectly. The headpiece and the filigree straight down earrings for me make a lightly oriental look and with the wonderful ring, that completes the set it was the perfect jewelry addition for this amazing creation.

The stunning gown you will now find at the Tres Beau Mainstore and the incredible jewelry set you can get at the Chop Zuey Mainstore πŸ™‚

“The Sin” – Do you dare to be fierce?

Mea Culpa Sin Red First

Tatanka Kaligawa, genius owner and designer of Mea Culpa is back on duty πŸ˜‰ He is working on many new creations right now and released already some of them in the last few days. I would like to start with the new “The Sin” catsuit today. This catsuit with the amazing latex texture can be a great basic for a cool and fierce styling. The shiny latex texture has a super realistic look with all the lights and shadows and the amazing front part is a highlight for itself as the most latex catsuits only have a simple zipper in the front. Mea Culpa takes the latex catsuit on a new level πŸ™‚ It is available in many different colors at the Mea Culpa Mainstore. As well Tatanka offers a “custom color” creation for the “The Sin” catsuit for a little extra fee. So what ever look you wanna create you can have the matching color of the “The Sin” catsuit, just put a color sample and your needs on a NC and you can have your custom colored “The Sin” catsuit πŸ™‚

Do you dare to be fierce?
