LOTD 08/16/2015 – Summertime

Summer Breeze 1a

As Time Passes Me By

The butterflies are floating through the air.
The grass is green,
and the trees are tall.
As the wind whistles through my hair,
I let life pass me by.
As time ticks and the clock goes by,
the flowers grow taller as life passes me by.
And I dream of floating right on by.
But now it’s time to stop dreaming,
and wake up to a hot summer day.

[Alice G.]
Summer Breeze 2aToday I was in a total summer mood…
That does not happen too often, but sometimes it really happens 😉
The outfit I am wearing we made for an event called FAD. The theme was Sundae Sunday.
Something dreamy and summer colored immediately came to my mind and it should have a little bit of ‘Kitsch’ as well. Why? Because Sundae Sunday reminds me of kinda the good old 50s/60s times with all the neat pastel toned colors and as well with a lot of plastic jewelry and accessories :p
The “Summer Breeze” dress – here shown in yellow – is a short dress with an amazing deep neckline in the front and as well a super sexy back with a lot of lines crossing your back side.
The “Tea Time” hat should speak for itself with the cute tea-pot and cup on the top.
To match the whole look we made the “Manon Heels” in yellow as well, with their cool heels, that totally add something special to the sweet look 😉

Sometimes…

Lost Creature 01

You can take away all my love, what do I need it for?
You can take away all these words, there’s no meaning anymore
You can take away everything, leave me lying on the floor
All those sorry’s, we can’t go back to the start
You can’t fix me, I’m torn apart

[Leona Lewis]

Lost Creature 03

Sometimes life feels dark…

Sometimes life feels empty…

Sometimes you feel teared apart…

Sometimes you see no light…

Sometimes you just feel nothing…

Sometimes you do not know what to do…

… But then…

You open your eyes, still full of tears and look up.

You take the hand, someone is reaching out and stand up again.

Hunger Games Tribute by Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW - Johanna 01

“Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

And again I am back with another of my creations for the Hunger Games Tribute event ran by Opium Evolution.

Today I would like to showcase my “Johanna” dress. This dress is made with the idea of Capitol Couture.

The dress is basically a short dress with a long train in the back. The shoulders are free and a huge collar lays round the neck. To connect the dress and the collar I placed one of the popular mockingjaw brooches at the left side of the chest. The dress itself has a basic black texture and the golden brocade corset sets a wonderful accent to the black and gives the whole ensemble a sophisticated touch. To bring back the gold, the long train was overlayed with a golden gitter net looking gaze. The huge black and gold headpiece as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and an unrigged version.

To complete the look I added one armlet in black and one bracelet in gold.

At the moment you can see all my new releases for the Hunger Games Tribute even – female AND male – at the shopping area of the Hunger Games Tribute event sim (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)

A Tribute to the Hunger Games by Wicca’s Wardrobe

WW - Enobaria 001

“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
Today is a very special day for me. The first time my own creations will be showcased on a runway. I was asked my Anastacia Markova to be part of the Hunger Games Tribute done my Opium Evolution.
I sat down for 3 weeks to think about what I would like to do for this amazing event. I am addicted to the Hunger Games stories. I saw both movies, read all the books and have 3 parts as audio book, so I can say I am kinda.. obsessed*giggles*
I love the idea of the futuristic and high fashion designs that are worn in the movies as well the various websites about Capitol Couture.
In the past I already released my Claw Boots and the Mathayus Heels, wich as well were made after a website that shows Capitol Couture.
Today I would like to start with my “Enobaria” outfit.
The name Enobaria was taken from one of the tributes that were chosen to be part of the hunger games. She won the 62nd Hunger Games and was known of killing her fellow tributes by ripping their throats with her bare teeth. She was called back for the 75th Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell edition, as the female tribute of district 2 one of the Career alliance districts.
The “Enobaria” outfit is a top and leggings combination, wich as well can be worn single to make your own mix and match. For the Capitol Couture version I chose the color combination teal and black. The top kinda is an ensemble of blouse and corset and with the long arms and all the frills it was perfect in my view.
The leggings are only wearable with the Slink high feet, wich are not included in the package. The one part legging shows a metallic teal top with garter belt and garters wich hold long socks or stockings where the toes peek out. I totally fell in love with those pants and so it was no question that I made them part of my “Enobaria” outfit.
The Mask as well is part of the outfit and comes in a rigged and unrigged version.
I hope you have fun with my little Hunger Games Tribute collection available at the Hunger Games Tribute Shopping Area (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/PAPAS/175/158/22)

Steampunk Fever!

Steampunk 001

Lately I was kinda affected by a Steampunk fever… I have no clue why, but each part of my body wanted to do something steampunk. Kara Trapdoor did even more throw me in that direction, when she IMed me, asking if I would like to be part of a steampunk exhibit done by bloggers. This wonderful exhibit started on the 4th of May 2014 and many of amazing bloggers made incredible pictures of steampunk sims, gear and fashion.

Steampunk Exhibit Poster

In SL I did not find too many steampunk designs so I decided this could be a reason to make some things, how I would imagine steampunk.

I started with a gown, the “Araminta” steampunk gown. When I finished it, in my view it looked a bit too elegant and I decided the gown has to have a jacket with it.

Steampunk Gown Vendor

When the gown was finished, the more I looked at it, the more I wanted a hat for it. I started with a simple top hat and added more and more gear and a head band closed in the back, until I was satisfied with it. To match the color of the gown was not that easy and took me quite some time and cursings but in the end it worked out :p .

Steampunk 002

The glasses I am wearing are made by Crie Style, one of the most skilled designer if it comes to glasses and eye wear.

Gown, Hat… so what s missing? The gown can be worn as a long and wide and a short and tight version, so I decided to make some neat booties matching both of the dresses even if they only can be seen with the short version 😉 .

Steam Booties Vendor

The “Araminta” steampunk gown and jacket comes in the 5 usual standart sizes plus the needed alpha layers. The normal prims of each of the 3 designs are either mod, or have a resizer so that you can make sure to make it fit your avatar.

I hope you liked my little steampunk journey and all of the items are now available at the Wicca’s Wardrobe Mainstore 🙂 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/96/141/22)

When you enter the sim you will immediately see what I am talking about. The whole place is black and just the shop entrances are highlighted. When I set up my store I really was impressed and it was super fun to just walk around and enjoy the feeling of the darkeness outside of the shops 😉

WM - Poses Elegant Clutch Set Posefair 2014 logo

For me this Pose Fair is very special as I was allowed to be part as a designer for the first time 🙂 . For my debut on the Pose Fair 2014 I made 4 different sets who are exclusively released atthe Pose Fair 2014 for now.

§ sets for the ladies and one for the gents. After I was asked so often to make some more male poses I had to include at least one set for the males as well even if I was told and as well shown, that some of my other sets as well work unisex.

I hope you enjoy my new sets and have fun by using them for runway or pictures 😉

You should not miss that great experience of the Pose Fair 2014 and all the great and amazing new and exclusive releases of all the designers who are being part 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe for K.I.D.S. – Through the eyes of a child

13783588063_cd9a9a4f67_o(Picture & Model: Sazzy Nirpaw)

Through the eyes of a child

Sweet innocent child with your open eyes.
You’ve seen us for who we really are.
And I know that there’ll be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day.
And I wish that this world would embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I know you, I’ve seen your face before
you brought me to this open door
afraid to walk through.
Please take my hand.

I know that there will be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day?
And I wish that this world embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I see where we’ll go from here.
‘Cause love doesn’t break
with the right amount of care
in your hands is whom you’ve choosen to be.
Life is a freedom.
Now go out there and be free.

Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.

 Fashion for K.I.D.S.  is a week-long charity event which will take place from April 14th to April 21st, 2014. that will help to feed the bodies and minds of young children. The two Miss Virtual World 2014 Candidates, Sienna Bellios and Shelby Matfield will collaborate in this effort , and raises funds for K.I.D.S., a children’s charity that aids in the development of children through nourishment and education (literacy). K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distress Situations) donates 97 percent of donations to the children and families they serve. The charity helps many kids in distress situations such as homelessness, low literacy rate, victims of domestic violence, children with serious illness, and military families. More information on this charity can be found at http://www.kidsdonations.org/about_wwa.htm.

During this event, a host of 18+ designers  willing to set up small vendors of their creations – with one creation donating 50% or more to the children’s charity. Since the charity is to aid children, the designers will have an array of bright colors to represent children, and just in time for spring! To cap off this event, we will host a grand fashion show on the BOSL sim, featuring the awesome women of Miss Virtual World 2014! It is our hope that through this colorful, spring fashion event, that we raise a substantial amount of lindens to give to K.I.D.S.

Each day families all around the world struggle for food, clothing, and shelter. Each day a parent loses their job and with the loss of a job, usually the loss of their home follows. We work hard to make ends meet, rob Peter to pay Paul, struggle to care for our children but the truth is, the vast majority is just one pay check away from poverty. And while as adults we suffer, those who suffer the most are our children. (Sazzy Nirpaw, http://sazzynirpaw.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/through-a-childs-eyes/)

—————————————————————

I really was very happy when Sienna IMed me and asked me, if I would like to participate in that event. I worked or over 10 years in children home for abused and homeless kids and it really touched my heart, when Sienna asked me. All the memories came back, the eyes of the children looking at me, their little hands reaching out for something the would like to have, the sparkling in their eyes for candy if I brought some with me to work…

I was thinking a lot what I could make for such a charity, because I really wanted to have something that has the kids theme in it. The idea of the “Lolliopop Gown” was born. All kids love candy and the idea of a gown made of lollipops just seemed for me the right idea for such a charity 😉

The gown comes with the mesh corset, a mesh skirt, the huge lollipop back-fan, the ribbons and ruffles and some little parts like the hair decoration and the lollipop for the hand. I left all the prim parts modify, so that you can play with them and reattach or resize them to your likings.

I hope you all like the idea, my little candy dream because 100% proceeds of the “Lollipop Gown” will go to the K.I.D.S. charity.

Please help those who cannot help themselves!
