“Music was my first Love…”

TUNES

Music was my first love
And it’ll be my last
Music of the future
And music of the past.
To live without my music
Would be impossible to do
In this world of troubles
My music pulls me through

“Sometimes I’m feeling like an Alien…”

TUNES

Where did I come from? Where do I go?
I’m so far away from home
What am I going for? How can I know
What I’m fighting for?

[- Dennis Lloyd -]

“Sometimes I’m feeling like an Alien…” true words, which apply to my SL as well as to my RL!

It is amazing how SL and RL can be different sometimes and so alike on the other hand. I always was more of an outsider, as I never was able to walk with the mainstream… not SL and nor RL either. I always had my own thoughts and they never fit into a “normal” frame of view it seems. I always avoided the “either black or white” decisions and tried to find my own way through many moments and situations.

Maybe it is the little rebel inside of me that always questions, if there is only black and white and why I would have to decide. What if the truth is somewhere between black and white… what about all those shades of gray – there are so many!

Plus I always had a problem with the phrase “it is, what it is” or “because we always did it like that” – I mean if I did it myself and then come to the conclusion it is – fine! But what, if I do it and come to a different opinion? I would have missed that if I just went with what I was told. There were situations, which were not nice and maybe I should have skipped them by just believing what I was told, but on the other hand I would have not experienced other wonderful things either. I have no clue if I make any sense but I do prefer to make my own experiences and go my own ways even of they might need more time or be a little more gravelly.

So much for that and now lets take a closer look on todays pictures. I visited the CyberPunk Fair from Flair for Events again and found some more neat goodies 😉

I am a cyberpunk addicted, that isn’t a secret anymore and so events like the CyberPunk Fair are like heaven for me. As you can see in the credits below, I picked up quite some new designs there like for example that wonderful mask made by PSYCHO:Byts. The mask comes with a HUD that holds amazing possibilities for the front textures a well as for many different color options – definitely a must have for me! The cool bodysuit as well you will find at the event, made by AURORA. You can change the lights and textures via a HUD too and so it will match to all kind of styles and colors. What caught my attention was the cool neck/head tattoo from Tristan Flinders, which comes with the option of materials as well.

Certainly I had to pair all the new goodies with some of my all time favorites like the cool body tattoo from Nefekalum Tattoos, which as well comes with amazing materials and in many different colors.

And in the end I fell totally in love with that little “Alien Monkey” from Black Cat Creations. You will find that on the CyberPunk Fair, but as well at the main store. This little, awesome pet comes in different colors (HUD), if you decide for the fatpack and has a wonderful pose for each of them including a mirrored version – so 5 poses plus their mirrors… 10 in total!

I still have the feeling that wasn’t my last post for the CyberPunk Fair as I already spied “a few” more things that caught my attention *giggles*

“Don’t try to talk, she ain’t in the mood…”

TUNES

The one that you fear is so close
The woman tattooed with the rose
Claws that are sharp, she’ll tear you apart
Make you into food for the crows

Revenge is her aim, she’ll make you pay
She talks a mean game and she’ll blow you away

Get out of town as soon as you can
You don’t want to face the Queen of the Damned

“When you understand the Nature of a Thing, you know what it’s capable of.”

You can’t keep denying what you are, man. You think the humans will ever accept a half-breed like you? They can’t. They’re afraid of you. And they should be. You’re an animal, you’re a fuckin’ maniac!

Yay, Cyber/Punk by Flair for Events again opened its doors. It always feels like Christmas if a Cyberpunk themed event opens its gates with all the amazing goodies you can find there! Most likely it won’t be the only post about that awesome event, but I do have to start somewhere *giggles*

The cool pants and boots are a fabulous combo from AsteroidBox for this event. They come together in one pack and even for the single colors you have 16 colors/patterns to choose from. Each color already includes a huge HUD with many details to customize boots, knee pads, belts, leg strap, plus the neon details. For the fatpack you even can mix and match the styling of the leg sleeves individually and you can decide if you want to wear the pants, boots or hip circles all together or just parts of it. For today’s post i just skipped the neon circles at the hips, but I am sure they will come up in one of my next posts *winks* The “Nella Pants & Boots” are rigged for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female.

Another awesome release are the huge but (yes I found out while I was shooting) gentle giants. They are part of an awesome posing set from Black Cats Creations, which you as well will find at the Cyber/Punk event. You can choose between 5 amazing detailed giants with poses for each of them and you even can recolor the monster if you go for the fatpack.

There are so many exciting releases and designs available at the Cyber/Punk event, you should bring time and a huge wallet to not miss out any of them *winks*

Maybe see you there?

There is more than one Demon here…

TUNES

You must have taken the wrong turn
You’ve ended up in hell
Hear me, temptress of the night,
There is more than one demon here
I see temples I yearn to defile,
‘Cause our horns hide divinity

And I think that the smell of your soft skin,
Is no less than the last legal drug
So here’s my seditious and bold whim:
Let’s drag the moon and make him watch
This grip will bloom into a bruise
These scars are your tattoos

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

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

Finally RL gives me enough room to write a post I wanted to do for weeks now. It will be a premiere, because it will be the first post without any credits, but the topic  as well as the person are value a lot to me and so I wanted to do that without any fashion details.

This picture is a very special picture to me as it is the first picture of Vivien and me, done by her! I wanted a picture done by her for quite some time as I adore her picture and pose skills, but let me start like around a year back I guess it was, when I spotted her work the first time on Flickr…

When I saw her art the first time I immediately loved it and I remember how much I was pondering, if we even should contact her, as I thought she most likely must have been overwhelmed with sponsors already. But Silly contacted her never the less and when I heard that Vivien would be interested I thought I am dreaming. When I heard that she doesn’t even have that much sponsors yet I was more than surprised… how that was possible with the amazing pictures and showcases she did?!?

I was so happy when she agreed to be added to our blogger team. What I not yet did know how fast and conscientious she is with her blogging. She is so fast and creative… I am always amazed how she can have 2 or more pictures per day in that high quality and with so many different ideas. Certainly we started talking some when and figured out that we both are Germans. That made communication even easier and the more we typed and talked the more we found out that we have many commonalities about blogging and as well about general thoughts and views.

Then there was a point when Silly wanted to step back a bit from her blogger manager duties and asked if I would know someone who would like to take over… in the moment she asked It felt like loosing a sister and I had no clue who could take over. Silly was with us since the very beginning and when she said that I could not even think about someone who could take over. But Silly calmed me down saying she would not be gone as a friend anyway and as well not as a senior blogger manager either. She offered to help with the transition and still be there for the ones who do not speak German or English or if she is needed. That set my head free, to think about, who could potentially be her successor. As soon as I could think straight, it felt so natural to ask Vivien. We shared our visions about blogging, bloggers and how to treat sponsors and they were a lot alike.

When I asked her she told me that she would have no experiences, but she loves challenges and she would like to try it… Said and done! So she took over a few month ago and she does a hell of a job. More than I ever would have expected especially since she said she never did that before. Sometimes I even get scared how fast she is so that I really have to tr hard to catch up if I don’t want to miss one of  the wonderful pictures of your amazing team! She asks me stuff I didn’t even yet realize and it feels really awesome, how she takes care of the whole machine 😉

How did Beu mention today when I told her how happy I am with Vivien.. “Better chain her to the pipes at the basement” – I am not sure if I want her at the basement… but if she enjoys chains.. who knows *grins*

That brought us even more together than before and Vivien feels like a sister in crime to me. When I finally dared to ask her, about a picture giving her full reigns about what she would like to do. she made that incredible wonderful picture above. It already was a while ago and I really felt bad to not yet being able to post it as I didn’t want her to think I do not like it – I really love it and it does mean a lot to me that she took her time and patience to create that wonderful piece of art. But I didn’t just want to rush it through!

Since I posted about disappointment a few days ago and that we never should trust people at all anymore – Vivien is one of the examples why we should trust people even if we do not know them for along time. If I would have no trusted her, wee would have never had the awesome times we shared and I never would have been able to know her as close as she feels to me now.

That as well brought me to the idea to have a little series about those, who became family to me over the time. To show them how much I do appreciate them and how much they mean to me 🙂

Thank you Vivien for your friendship, your effort, your work and your creativity – Thank you for being an important part of my life and I hope we will make it to meet up RL for a coffee soon!
