Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 04/26/2013 – Light Colors ;)

LOTD 04262013 full

Hoooorrraaay, Spring is coming 😉 In Germany we had the first sunny week with genial temperatures. It was great to feel the sun kissing your skin and the mood became better as well. No more cold weather no more dark cloudy days… amazing! Inspired by all the wonderful weather and colors outside, I wanted to make a spring look that would work to just go for some shopping 😉 .

I started with the “LolliPop Dress” top from GizzA, because I loved the strong yellow that reminded me so much of the sun. The cool ruffles gave the whole outfit a light retro touch. A longer time ago I got the “Apasionado” bag from LaGyo. The cute bag looks like a little face with the zipper and the holders and I really fell in love with it. The denim color of the bag brought me to my blue jeans. The wonderful “Skinny Pants” from GizzA are mesh made and so you have an awesome shape and it moves perfect even with weird poses or movements… no more weird knees 😉 .

Now the drama started, as I wanted to have yellow shoes that go with the shirt. I looked through my shoe folder and all yellow tones looked more orange than yellow compared to the top, not to mention that most of my shoes are black or white *chuckles* So the few I had, I could not really use and I thought about a good store for strong colored shoes that matched the look. I started window shopping for nearly over an hour till I arrived at Tara. Bingo! I saw already when I arrived – even if I was still rezzing –  that I would find many colored shoes and maybe even the right yellow tone 🙂 .

After trying a few demos, I decided to go for the “Equilibrium” shoes from Tara. With all the silver decorations, studds and ornaments I wanted to go for light accessories so my choice fell on the “Asia” watches and braceletsfrom GizzA and the “Lick ME!” earrings from Ticky Tacky, both in white.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 04/16/2013 – Loneliness

GizzA Cadet First

Today I was in a little romantic mood and I had to prepare for my GizzA shift. I wanted to use some ruffles but make it not too playfully. I took the pants from the “Valentino Inspiration” as I really liked the ruffles and the aerial movement it has. To not make it too sweet looking, I used the top of the “Cadet Couture” outfit.The golden ornaments and the brown golden sleeves perfectly repeated the basic tone of the chest part.

For the collar/shoulder part I remembered the “Epaulette” set, that once was part of a special event and now is back for some gatcha fun at the Gizza Mainstore. You never know, which color you will get but you can collect all of them if you have enough patience and pocket money :p

The “Combat Boots” are one of the latest releases of GizzA. The heavy looking boots made a perfect frame together with the top for the sweet ruffled pants 😉

To cover the break of the top and the pants I used the belt of the “Rock Queen” outfit.

Now I will make my way over to GizzA to work a bit, maybe see you there 😉

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 04/15/2013 – Black & Yellow

Bubbles Yellow 001

Sometimes when I just style for fun I try to make my self different tasks. Sometimes it is certain styles or even certain colors or color combinations. Today I was in a  little black and yellow mood after I tried one of the latest releases from Bubble’s Design. The “Tiffany Yellow” dress, that Bubbles released not too long ago brought me on the idea of the yellow & black color combination and I wanted to pull it through the whole styling and picture.

To the “Tiffany Yellow” dress from Bubble I added the newest shoe release from LeeZu, the “Piazza Navona” ankle boots. I love the non usual and crazy stuff anyways and this shoes just totally caught my heart. For this post I decided to go with the yellow ones but you can have them in nearly all colors at the LeeZu Mainstore. The “Anna” stockings I found as well at LeeZu.

To give it a little bit more craziness I added the “Cubism Shades” glasses from epoque & the back fan is a long time favourite of mine and I found them ages ago at [glow] 😉

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 04/06/2013 – Today at GizzA

GizzA 001

Not too long ago I started a new job… Assistant at GizzA. GizzA does not have usual store models, the have assistants that greet and help the customers with all of their problems.

I was about looking for the news at the GizzA Mainstore as I meet an old friend of mine while she was doing her shift at GizzA and she told me a bit about it.

I always liked the idea more of being an active helper that just a quiet mannequin and since I was told they still looking for assistants she directed me to Xii, who handles all the assistants. I know Xii for quite some time and we talked a bit and not too long after I got the job. And I have to admit the team there is amazing. We have so much fun and all are friendly and helpful.

I was very excited when I prepared for my first shift and it still is so much fun to create outfits with all the amazing designs of GizzA. Many of you know me already and know as well I am not the one that just throws on folders. So I was trying to mix and match out of my huge GizzA folder and find some cute and cool outfits.

The one I wanna show you today, falls more into the category cute I guess *grins* – I know.. rare but it happens :p

GizzA 002a

I started with one of the newer releases of GizzA, the “Pure Romance Blouse” in satin white. I always had a fable for black and white and as well for the 80s and so the idea of a 80s touched black and white outfit was growing more and more and the cute ruffles of the “Pure Romance Blouse” made a great basic. I digged a little deeper in my GizzA folder and found an outfit that I really have for a long time now and the pants of the “Princely” outfit were just perfect with the wide upper leg sleeves.

The 80s had a few typical shoes and one of the was the sneaker ankle boots. I remember I had some white Adidas boots with the typical three stripes in gray on the sides. Since GizzA released some stylish “Mesh Sneakers” lately they just were perfect for the look 😉

All of a sudden I remembered the amazing watches, that Giz released not too long ago and I just added them, as huge bangles and watches as well was something I remember very well back then – god i really had some of those huuuuge leather bands with a watch on it… and the hype of the big Swatch watches… amazing*giggles*

Last but not least I decided to go with the “Sirah” hair from Burley that I always call with love my “Boy Jorge” hat :p

A last look into the mirror… ready to go 🙂

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 03/30/2013 First, Shooting with Dahriel, then Shift at LeeZu ;)

8606862624_df6f823148_b

A few days ago Dahriel messaged me if I could put a spring look together real quick, for the vendor of a new set of his poses. The “Giz” poses are a very special pose pack, becasue the poses are very expressive. I told him I would do a style real quick and he warned me and told me: “Let me send you the poses before so you can check that they match the styling. The poses are not that usual.”

Ok that was a challenge and I love challenges 😉

It took me a few minutes, but then I was sure what I wantd to wear and I am happy he liked the styling as well 😉

My Second Pose Set together with News from Bubble’s Design!

Bubbles + Wicca Posen 001

Today I would like to show you one of the latest releases of Bubble’s Designs paired with my newest pose creations, the “Cool Handbag Set” by Wicca’s Wardrobe. As I put on the “Jackeline” outfit from Bubble’s Design I suddenly had the imagination of a 80’s styling :p

The sheer bodysuit with the amazing belt and shoulder collar that makes this wonderful, sexy and deep neckline in the back , immediately reminded of some of the early madonna stylings. Usually I am not a friend of pink but the 80s sometimes just scream about pink and so I added some pink with the lips, nails and the “Paris Pink Fashion Handbag” from MALT.

Then I looked for some cool trendy handbag poses… I went through all my inventory and I found quite some but all looked kinda elegant and sweet and I wanted some cool ones. So what now… make some!

WM - Poses Cool Handbag

I went back to my secret laboratory and started to make some poses that would go with the look I just created. I did some research on RL magazines and found a picture that caught my attention and I wanted to redo this in SL.

There was a girl that grabbed a fence with one hand and was kinda hanging from it, both feet at the ground and she was holding a bag! (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-EEdePH-c1hw/T7AHK7Ir9sI/AAAAAAAAAKA/fPoyGbpdUp8/s1600/V%2Bpose%2B2-001.jpg)

That was as well the inspiration for the first picture of this post, that you can see above ;).

So if you wanna grab them.. I put them for sale a few seconds ago 😉 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Napf/61/35/40)

Crazy Connection: The question that matters

CC AD 1

The question that matters.

Sirena was a young woman leading a carefree life. She had a good job, no worries and the men courted her, though she did not really care for them. All in all, she did not really care for anyone but herself, using the same excuses we all tend to use. “That is none if my business.” “What can I do about it?” or “I don’t want to interfere.”

She lived close to the graveyard and when the weather was fine, she took a shortcut there from the bus home. One evening, she saw a woman on a bench, crying bitter tears. The woman looked at her, but Serena quickly looked away. When she was about to leave the graveyard an old witch – by the looks of her – stepped into Serena’s way and asked straight away “Why didn’t you ask the woman why she cried?” Serena was a little scared and mumbled, I thought she was mourning, this is a graveyard after all. What can I do about her grief?”

The old witch looked at her sadly and shook her head. “Dear girl, you need a lesson in compassion. I hex you not to be able to leave the graveyard until someone shows you the sympathy you denied that woman.”

CC AD 3

Serena did not know if to laugh or to be scared, the old woman had disappeared as sudden as she showed up. Serena headed for the exit but ran into an invisible wall. She tried to get out at another spot, but to no avail.

Whenever she tried to talk to someone, they ignored her. After a while the place took its tribute, her eyes burnt out from crying over her own sad fate, her nails grew into claws, in short, she became a fearful sight. People started to run away from her thinking her a demon of some sort.

One day, when she was sitting numbly on a gravestone mulling over her fate and feeling the pain of being ignored, she finally learned her lesson. For the first time, she did not cry out of self-pity, but for shame and pity for all the people she had ignored all her life.

Suddenly she heard a warm male voice behind her. “Excuse me, can I do anything for you?” She felt the curse break and when she turned round she saw a man, just like herself smiling at her. “I think you can go home now.” He said.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: The Steampunk Crow

WiccaMerlin_Fashion01_HauteMagazine_November2012_06

“People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the land of the dead, but sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back and put the wrong things right .”

(Sahra – The Crow 1994)

I know that crows are usually black, but as iIwas styling, I wanted to do someting in a brown/nude tone for the HAUTE Magazine (http://hautesl.com/latest-issue/)

The quote out of the movie “The Crow” still was in my mind all the time when I was styling.  I like dark fantasy novels and movies and so many of my stylings have some of those in the back, even if I do not always name them or tell about it.

For this styling I started with the “XXX” dress from LWL. I had it for a longer time but never something came to my mind what I could do with it. With the theme of the minimal colors for the HAUTE Magazine the brown tone matched amazing and I paired the crow theme with some steampunk elements like the boots from Grim Bros and the helmet from Diram. The amazing wings were a gift from Reclaw Inshan, former designer of R.A.D. Together with the leggings from LeeZu and the jewelry from Chop Zuey, the fantasy idea came to live.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Cancion De La Muerte

 Devils Violin 001a

Cancion de la muerte

Nathaniel had just finished school and wanted to make a trip through Europe before he started university. When he was in Spain, he had dinner in a little bar when he packed for the night, the landlord warned him not to go to the nearby ruins after sunset.

As every young man, Nathaniel did not care for advise and thought the locals superstitious. His curiosity tickled, he thought he might just see them before going to the hostel. As he got there, he started to feel a bit uneasy. Then he heard the sweetest music.
He followed the tune and saw a little girl playing. First she ignored him, playing with her eyes shut, then she looked at him, turned round and went into the direction of the ruins.

He hesitated, but decided to follow the girl. When he entered the ruins he thought he heard moans and muffled screams, but he told himself silly. “When the little girl is not afraid, I should not be either,” he told himself. He looked at the girl again and suddenly he realized what was so weird about her, she was slightly translucent. His heart started racing and he was about to let pride be pride and run, when the girl spoke. “Help us! We cannot live or die because of the music.”

He looked round and saw a few ghosts lingering around, they all seemed unnaturally aged. They all looked at him pleadingly, Mustering all his courage, he asked how he could help. The girl said “Stop the music. Come!” She led him into a room in the ruins. There was a fire burning in the fireplace and someone was sitting on a chair. The little girl stopped playing but the music went on. She pointed at the person in the chair.

He slowly went round the chair and gasped in horror, there was a mummified old woman looking at the notes before her playing the violin. She had the same eyes as the girl and he knew her ghost led him to her body – or what was left of it. She played on and on. “Burn the notes,” said the little girl. He went around the chair, took the notes “Pierre’s Requiem” from the stand and threw them into the fire. Then all went very fast, the fire blazed up in a roar, the ghost of the girl was drawn into her corpse. Then there was a flash of light and the sound of thunder. Then, the music started again.

He saw the person in the chair had turned into a beautiful young woman, smiling at him while playing a different tune. He saw there were new notes on the stand and went to throw them into the fire, too. When he stretched out his hand he saw it was aging fast until he saw his own body crumbling into dust. The song was called “Nathaniel’s Requiem”. The last thing he heard was the woman’s chuckle playing his song.
