In Darkness let me Dwell

TUNES

In darkness let me dwell, the ground shall sorrow be
The roof despair to bar all cheerful light from me
The walls of marble black that moistened still shall weep
My music hellish jarring sounds to banish friendly sleep:
Thus wedded to my woes, and bedded to my tomb
O, let me living die, till death do come

[John Dowland]

Again I was in a more dark mood and had fun with the dark side of life 😉

I wanted to show off some new releases from CerberusXing, which completely caught my heart. The “Industrial Valkyrie” gacha set is a complete must have if you want to be one of the cool kids. The set contains top, skirt and the thigh-high stomper boots, which are decorated with some amazing chains at the foot. The black top and skirt are the rarely while you have 6 more colors, including white, in the commons. The colors are so very well compatible you can even mix and match different colors and have an amazing look.

The incredible detailed face chain as well was made by CerberusXing. The “Tyran’s Chain” is available in gold, silver and onyx at FaMESHed. It reaches over half the face from the ear towards the nose where it is ending in a little ring-shaped nose piercing. I found out that it perfectly goes with the “Ostium Impaler” ears as well made by [CX].

The perfect matching tattoo was made by Nefekalum Tattoos. It wasn’t meant to be word with the outfit intentionally, but for me it was the perfect match! It has long black arms and some amazing devilish ornaments across them and over the chest. The tattoo comes with materials, appliers and as BoM layers, so you really can choose what fits your style best or what you like most.

I will now go and try again all the other colors of that great gacha and make my personal mix and match with them for an everyday use – just to prove that I am not ONLY wearing black all the time *giggles*

Wicca’s Originals @ Cyber/Punk Fair May 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ Cyber/Punk Fair (May 10th – June 7th)

Wicca’s Originals has produced another arm replacement, the Omega Arms. Whether one is a flesh and blood amputee, or a gynoid/android, these artificial limbs are built to fully simulate natural range of motion but with more reliability, endurance, and strength than its organic counterpart. Segmented paneling coming in 9 different colors provides a flattering look more stylish than a pair of gloves (though one could still sport gloves in addition). The panels and flexible rubber pieces provide covering and water-tight sealing for the sensitive gyros and step motors which drive the fully articulated (Bento) fingers, wrist, and elbow. The entire Omega Arms system, for each arm, is detachable at the shoulder for easy maintenance and power charging. Provides regular use for up to 48 hours, or high-stress usage for up to 12.
Omega Arms are rigged to fit Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass and Signature Gianni, so you and your partner can have cyber arms together!

Wicca’s Originals @ We♥RP 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ We♥RP (May 4th – 31st)

The RX-01 Spine by Wicca’s Originals is one of our most potent bodyware augments. While not as overt as the Elmstone Head (HERE)  and not as obvious in function as limb replacements, the RX-01 Spine brings its power to where it really matters: the nervous system. Yes, this augment is keyed to one of the most sensitive systems in the humanoid form and is capable of pushing the rest of the wearer’s body beyond its limits. Neural responses and muscle memory can be recorded and pre-programmed for precision reactions even before the conscious, slower organic mind can process what has happened. Pain signals can be isolated and deferred, minimized to below-shock thresholds (Or, for the true masochists, amplified). The external pieces of the artificial vertebrae were designed not just with function in mind, but also are quite stylish, sporting a true cyberpunk aesthetic. With the RX-01 Spine, the input/output system of the humanoid is purely under your control.
RX-01 Spine fits just about everyone – Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy, Slink Hourglass, and Signature Gianni.

 

Since it is the We♥RP Anniversary Round we put a little unisex gift for 10L$ only!

LeLUTKA did it again!!!

They released another gorgeous new head for their Evolution Line called “Nuri”. Usually I try to combine different skins and shapes and try to ‘own’ every new head before I do pictures. Sometimes that takes a while until I am satisfied, but this time when I saw the “Nuri” head, I felt that African-American beauty of the basic structure of the head. I just had to use the original skin that comes with the head to really showcase that incredible work of LeLUTKA again. The head is very sophisticated and with some much love to the details. I always admired how LeLUTKA does give attention to different ethnics and how well the specific trademarks are brought to (virtual) life. The skin is one of the 4 original skins that come with the “Nuri” head. They perfectly work with the Glam Affair Body skins (OVERVIEW). I will play a little more with the Glam Affair skins made for the “Nuri” head for one of my next posts, but for now please do enjoy the natural beauty of “Nuri”

Captured by my own Thoughts…

The past week was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. Life changed with the pandemic all over the world, I guess most of the people try to work with it as best as they can. For me personal, I am not suffering not too bad from quarantine and lock-down. I still get to teach 7/8 hours a days from Monday to Thursday – I am on of the lucky ones to have students who have/were given all the needed hardware to do online school with them. I just adjusted my work space/office to have a virtual classroom. I set up my camera and monitors to have one screen share for files and another as “chalkboard” where I can write on. That is working really fine for about 5 weeks now, even if I really miss seeing my students in person sometimes.

I followed the discussions about how to start school again with high interest, as according to all other news we are not yet over the pandemic problems since we have not yet any kind of vaccine. So we still have rules like limited contacts only, do not take your kids on your shopping tours and in some areas even the duty to wear masks while shopping or being on public transport vehicles. All over they tell us the self made masks won’t protect us from being infected and only safe the people around you in case you are infected and do not know. Reading all that I thought, they will keep school online for the rest of this school year to be honest, at least for those who have a good running system and perfect contact to their students. I was so wrong… They now force all exam classes back to school with no exception of having better alternatives or possibilities, which would limit the risk to get infected. So even if you have a good running online schooling, it doesn’t matter. If you have better ideas against the given “10 – 15 students in one little classroom”, for example use the gyms which is like 3 to 4 times bigger than a class room and you could keep the class together with 18 people and still have more space between them and as well the teacher… no exceptions allowed. When I read the reason for that “no exceptions” politics I was shocked. The reason would be to TEST how the numbers of infections change, if you put 10-15 people with the teacher in one tiny classroom… WTF?!? What is wrong with our society if we use kids and teachers as “guinea pigs” if we could have other solutions to keep them way more safe and healthy? I would not say a word, if that would be the only possibility to go back to a regular school schedule and if we already would have ways to really protect people like I already said for example vaccine, or at least protecting masks and what ever it needs! Our kids have their parents at home, sometimes even their grandparents. Some have parents, who suffer from all kind of heavy sicknesses or diseases! Just because the symptoms are not affecting the majority of kids that much, we just take the risk of making our kids sick on purpose and make them bringing it home to the rest of their family?!? I just do not see the pressure of having schools back up and having all grades right for the next certificate in only a few month by risking the health and maybe even the life of people or kids, especially if we could have all kind of work-arounds like home schooling or better protection if the classes have to be in presence of kids and teacher. I am not a paranoid person, I wasn’t panicking at all over all that past weeks, but the news of the past few days just totally did throw me off and beyond.

With all of that, I guess it again pulled out my darker side again for my pictures, but I do not mind that, since I do enjoy that side of mine too 😉
Lately I found a mega cool tattoo brand called Vegas Tattoo. They really do interesting and well drawn tattoos for an everyday look – if you love tattoos like me that would be 😉 Today I chose one of their latest releases for Spring Flair Event called “Welcoming Spring”. The tattoo covers all parts of the body, You have something on your front and back upper body, your arms and hands as well as down your right leg. What caught me the most is, that the seams are extremely well done. A nice little detail is the sweet butterfly at your left hip with all the more dark looking ornaments of the rest of the tattoo 😉
Certainly I had to complete my style with a lot of incredible, amazing CerberusXing designs – I can’t help it iam just a [CX] addicted *winks* Since I am in a way better mood now, after venting just a bit today in the beginning of my post, I will see with what I will come up next…
