Might have been the wrong Spell…

Again LeLUTKA surprises us with an amazing new release. The new “Gaia” head is perfectly designed to create some fresh, youthful, kawaii, or fantasy looks. It does have the same incredible amazing featured and HUDs as all the new 3.1 updates and in addition you will getthe lovely facetattoo (“whiskers”) in 2 different styles and those super cute and awesome fox ears! The fox ears are animated like the elf ears we already know, you just have to activate them with the little blue button on your HUD. You can customize your new fox ears as well and you even can decide if you want them with or without materials applied. You get 10 different fur colors for your ears premade and you even can edit them to adjust the fur color to match you look perfectly. Furthermore you get 2 more layers, where you can color the tips of your fox ears and as well the fluff inside. I am usually no fur ears person, but I am completely in love with those new fox ears! LeLUTKA did collaborate with some amazing designers, to make a complete look for the release on Equal 10 – you should not miss that (direct TP will be on the credits below!)

At NEO Japan you can find some of the latest releases from CerberusXing and cinphul.

The amazing headpiece is the exclusive from cinphul for NEO Japan. I your package you will find one arrangement as seen on the picture above, but as well all the single parts -3 combs, 6 forks, 2 loops and 3 pins –  so you can create your own unique headpiece. With the HUD you can color it in 6 different colors.

The “Blazing Vixen” you as well will find at NEO Japan, released by CerberusXing. Coming in 5 different colors (I am wearing “Firefly”) this amazing sexy and cool, shot body suit is created for Maitreya and Legacy female mesh bodies. With the transparent front and back and the amazing colored sides, it is a total must have for a sexy girls wardrobe *winks*

As well at NEO Japan you can find that incredible amazing, Asian tattoo by Vegas Tattoo. I adore how crisp and clear all of the Vegas tattoos are, you really can zoom in close and still have no blurry spots – simply awesome!

At the Dark Style Fair you will find those super sharp claws, made by L’Emporio. They can be textured in many different colors and metals with the HUD that comes with them.

NEO Japan will last till the 17h of October and the Dark style Fair will close its doors on the 31st of October – LMs are in the credits below 😉

Transformation

Transformation

He left me for dead in the back alley of London’s most desolate area.
His attack was brutal, ruthless. His hands steady; his blade true. He left me nothing that resembled the fairer sex. His hatred for women knew no boundaries. And when he was finished, he wiped his hands clean as he stared down upon me with bland indifference – a frog dissected.
Time changed after he left. Minutes felt like days. Pain gave way to a coldness that numbed me to the world beyond. Voices, wagons, hawkers – all faded away until the silence screamed in my ears. I prayed for Death to find me.
<scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump>
The sound grew out of the darkness. What did Death sound like?
A shadowy figure hovered over me before large, powerful hands yanked me from the ground and I was thrown across a shoulder as if I were nothing more than a burlap bag filled with potatoes.
<scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump>
The jarring gait matched the eerie sound. That was the last sound I heard before Morpheus dragged into the abyss.
Oh, what fresh Hell is this? I awaken to the taste of rancid gruel forced into my mouth. Only one eye will open and that takes all my strength to perform. A wooden pushed passed my lips and I gagged on the noxious porridge until the whole of my stomach emptied onto my makeshift bed.
Clumsy hands attempted to clean up the mess, but only seemed to spread it around. An angry shout and the familiar sound of uneven footsteps retreating from my side brought me back to my present situation. The rough blanket was snatched away and a violent shiver wracked my body.. I strained to raise my head and with my one eye I saw my both swathed in dirty and blood-stained bandages.
A man stood beside the bed; poked and prodded me with the same dispassion as my attacker. Cold, probing eyes watched me over wired spectacles perched at the tip of his thin nose. White, wiry hair stood out in all directions and thickly pursed lips hide behind a grizzly beard. What must pass for a doctor’s coat covered a wrinkled and ill-kept suit that once must have belonged to a gentleman of considerable wealth.
The uneven footsteps again approached and I got my first good look at my rescuer. Had I been able to move, I would have recoiled in fear and disgust. Had a gargoyle from high upon the Cathedral precipice come to life, it would hold more appeal than the freak approaching me. Hunched backed and dragging a clubbed foot,. its grotesque features distorted into a mask of pure horror. Yet, its eyes reflected … pity. Not for its own circumstances, but for ME!
Suddenly, I realized the man in the doctor’s coat was speaking to me. He explained how his assistance, Igor (the pathetic creature now gently covering me with a clean blanket) found me and carried me to the doctor’s laboratory. My mind spun and I heard only bits and pieces as he inventoried my injuries. Over 300 stitches. Missing eye. Amputated hand. Leg muscles and tendons severed. Lucky to be alive. Permission for procedures.
All i remember was grimly nodding my head in consent. What did it matter what this man did to me. The midnight attacker took my life. Now this doctor, Dr. Frankenstein, said he could fix me. What does it matter. I died in that alley.
Days dragged into weeks. Weeks dragged into months. As soon as my wounds healed, Dr. Frankenstein began his experiments. What did it matter what I looked like. No man would ever look at with anything but disgust in his eyes. The midnight attacker took away everything that made me a woman.
I would have gone mad; I should have gone mad, had it not been for Igor. Beneath that monstrous face and body was a pure and generous heart. Each day Igor would bring me a gift; a trinket of some sort. A wilted flower. Half empty bottle of perfume. A torn lace handkerchief. Items discarded by their owners were treasures in the creature’s eye. And each gift he presented earned him pained and weary smile from me.
Winter was in full force when I woke on my stomach after what Dr. Frankenstein claimed was the final procedure. No sheet covered me, but what did I have to be modest about now. I pushed myself up and startled when movement caught in my peripheral vision. For the first time in the eternity in this hellhole, I was presented with a mirror. Not a small looking glass, but a large, three-sided standing mirror one might find at a couturier’s shop.
I did not wish to look, but it seemed as though the Fate’s compelled me forward. The ever present bandages were gone and my naked flesh was exposed for all to see. What I saw reflected made Igor’s ugliness look like a work of art.
Skin once soft as satin and milky white was now ashen and covered with long, jagged scars. Once full and bountiful breasts were gone and only to be replaced with raw, burnt tissue covering my chest. My face … my perfect face, that once turned heads of men and women alike, was mangled beyond recognition.

Only one crystal blue eye stared back. The other hollow socket was covered with a mechanical piece with wires embedded into my head. Though the eye was missing, my vision was sharper and more intense than humanly possible.

When I reached out to touch the mirror in disbelief, I saw a mechanical claw resembling the talons of a bird of prey. I slashed out at my image and the razor-sharp tips left deep gouges on the mirrors surface. The other hand, while still flesh and blood, had similar claws embedded where fingernails once grew.
A sob escaped my lips when eyes traveled downward and I saw the devastation done to that most sacred of womanly places. Yes, the midnight attacker took great pleasure and care in that area. Nothing remained.
Farther down, the thigh of one leg and calf of another were replaced with metal rods and blood filled tubes and contained in some form of a clear, unbreakable casing. My head snapped up at a sudden movement from behind me. A pair of mighty wings spread out like an avenging angel sent from the heavens. Feathers black as night entwined with pistons and gears and glistening metal talons.
I did not hear Igor’s approach, but saw he stood beside the mirror. In his gnarled hands he carefully held the most beautiful gown I had ever seen in my life. A gown of such great wealth and quality a woman would sell her soul to possess it. His lips were twisted into what had to be a smile as he held out the gown to me as a gift.
But I am no longer a woman. I am no longer human. A shrill and blood-curdling screech tore from my throat as I snatched the dress from Igor and with a strength I did not know I possessed, ripped the gown to shreds. Soul sick and broken, I fall to my knees among the tattered remains of Igor’s gift and weep.
The passage of time again eluded me as I lay huddled on the floor before that mirror, the wings a protective encasement around me guarding me from harm. Only a pitiful, woeful sound made me raise my head.
There, crouched on the floor before me was Igor, tears flowing down his face and a large bundle clutched to his chest. He dropped his burden in front of me and quickly scurried back on his hands and knees like a bug caught in a sudden light.

Again, Igor brought me clothing, but this time far different from the Lady’s gown. This offering contained men’s trousers and jacket made from fine leather and boots to match. Seems when Igor stole, he stole only the highest quality goods.

The pants were snug and fit me like a second skin. The jacket, too, fit me perfectly and was even tailored to allow for the wings now permanently affixed to my back. The tall, thick boots provided warmth and protection.
And it seems Igor was not willing to allow me to forget I was once a woman, for he included a short velvet cape elaborately embroidered with gold thread.
I pulled what was left of my unevenly cut hair together into a bun and turned to the mirror for the last time. Anne was gone forever. Only this creature, the Dark Angel of Harper’s Ferry remained. And she was ready to hunt.
Beware, Jack the Ripper. I am coming for you!

I feel so gifted to be allowed to call Anne a close and dear friend. Today it was her coming to me when I was trying to run after all my duties. I didn’t say something, but she asked if all is fine. She does have that 6th sense I guess, that makes her feel, if I am just slightly sad, stressed or frustrated. Today she must have felt that I am a little stressed and he asked me if all would be ok. Basically everything was ok and I told her that Liam fine, but had to finish some pictures for a magazine, a blog post and the posting for the store – for that she as well wrote a wonderful story, just take a look at the previous post HERE – and today I wanted to reveal the first chapter of it (yes she made 3 chapters and they will come one after another *winks* ). Being such a sweetheart she always is, she asked me if she could help me. Since it was making pictures, I told her that I do not think I could ‘outsource’ any of my work. A little later I again thought about the amazing story she wrote me yesterday for my post and so I carefully asked her if she still would be in a writing mood. I really was a little shy as she already wrote all those amazing chapters for the store releases and that incredible amazing story for me yesterday. But she said she had the second half of her frozen custard, which made her so cuber awesome creative yesterday and she asked me what kind of story. I showed her my raw shots for the post and instead of asking when I need it or telling me she would not have time, she just asked “Did you have anything in mind while styling this?” That was the moment where I just could have hugged her super tight again. I told her about the basic idea I had for the pictures and she started writing. Again she saved my ass! I adore her creativity, her skills for making all those stories for me and as well for our store releases – Anne you are such sweet little diamond, thank you so much… again ♥

The Greed of Man

There are only five of us left.

One year ago, when 214 men and women arrived on this desolate, unnamed planetoid, it was with only one thought on out minds – how sinfully rich we would be when we left.

When Boyton Bros. Mining Corporation discovered a new fuel source, which they shamelessly named BBMC-X, their stocks skyrocketed. Just one of the small green rocks, no bigger than a baseball, could fuel a city the size of New York for two years. And just in time, too. The Earth, with all its greedy, wasteful inhabitants, had depleted all the natural resources on the planet.

Mankind now reached out to the heavens and stripped each planet we touched until it, too, was a dead rock in space. We took and stole every useful resource for consumption on Earth and left behind an empty shell.

So 214 men and women came to this lifeless planet with the promise of untold wealth once we strip-mined every last iota of BBMC-X in existence. Everything ran smoothly for the first month, until the killings began. It began in the deepest shafts when a shift reported for work and found a dozen bodies shredded to pieces; limbs torn away.

Security was sent into the tunnels armed with the deadliest weapons know to man, only never to be seen again. Soon the attacks were closer to Base Camp. Metal building ripped open like they were made of paper. The mined BBMC-X disappeared. That’s when we saw the monster. Hideous. Malevolent Lethal. A mindless killing machine.

Its skin was like armor that no man-made weapon could pierce, Long talons sprouted from its back that could tear a man to pieces in seconds or fell him with a single drop poisonous venom. It was mindless, merciless and killed without conscious. Now the remaining five are hunting the beast. Or, is it hunting us?

As we enter a large chamber filled with BBMC-X, the attack is swift and silent. The other were killed instantly. I was not so lucky. I feel the venom flow through my blood like acid as convulsions violently shake my body. In my last moments, I watch the gruesome creature carefully pick up a small green rock that fell to the ground close by. A fanged mouth opens and hisses its contempt for me as it gently cradles the rock to it chest.

The hiss turns into what I can only describe as a soft, soothing purr as a deadly, gnarled claw reaches out to a green orb bigger than my head. At the creature’s touch, the orb glows and shadows shift inside it. Something inside is … alive. Each orb the creature lovingly caresses responds the same way.

These rocks are not a new fuel source. It is not ore to mine for our consumption. They are eggs. And the creature was only protecting her young!

Dear God, what have we done!

The amazing story was written by my dear friend Anne Daumig. She was with me when I did shoot the pictures. Since I know what she can do and because she already had some cool ideas while I was looking for poses for my pictures, I could not resist to beg her… I asked her if she would be in a writing mood and give it  a try for a story to my picture ideas – She agreed and made my day with her writing magic again. Check out her BLOG and FLICKR and don’t forget to give her some star love *winks*

Thank you so much Anne ♥

Hitchhiking…

My favorite part of the year is just about to start with one of my personal favorite events – The engine Room done by Second Life Syndicate!

An event entirely event about steampunk, dieselpunk and all those amazing technical based designs with mostly a Victorian touch somehow – just completely down my personal alley 😉

Today I am coming with a maybe very modern technical style, because the amazing “Technolady Boots” from A&Y are one of the releases for the Engine Room. To show you that you as well can use them for a more modern futuristic look as well and because I am an A&Y freak addicted anyway, I styled it with some of her latest releases as well. As usual the boots come with her amazing HUD that lets you customize so many different parts that let you match it to all kind of looks and styles.

The hair I am using is the first EvoX hairbase coming from no.match and guess what.. it is a gift! Coming in 4 different colors it is a really generous gift with all those new EvoX hairbases 🙂

Speaking of all those amazing designs I do not want to forget that incredible tattoo which I am wearing – certainly from my favorite tattoo maker – comes from Vegas Tattoo. For the Cyber Fair they released a new tattoo with an amazing futuristic look as well coming for EvoX! I am so in love with those tattoos, that come up the neck until the chin that this one for me is a definite must have.

For now I will just go back to my platform to make more pictures of all those amazing new releases of the Engine Room. While Liam doing that, you could just opo over to the event and see by yourself what amazing releases are waiting there for you 😉

What’s Next?

Today I do have a very special post – special to me, as I had an amazing girl with me. Abyss Artful. I adore her creativity, ideas and skills for quite some time.

Recently we started talking and we came across the idea we should make a picture together. You know how that is if both of the people that would like to do something together are busy and work a lot. Exactly that happened to Abyss and me for month. We always wanted to make a picture together and it just didn’t happen.

So this time we said we do want to make a cyber/cyberpunk picture and with the upcoming/now open Cyberfair we thought, this could be a great occasion to really come together and finally do this.

Since we do not know each other for that long yet, we both were excited and I was nervous as well. How it would go, how long it would take, would it work just the first time we try?

We are both perfectionists, we both wanted to shoot one version of the picture and from talks we had before we both did know from each other, that it could take us hours to have the perfect shot or pose or setup. So we said, we just meet and fool around a bit on one evening and then, when we re certain what we want to do, we meet the next day to shoot. Neither me or her are too familiar with couple poses, since we shoot all on our own a lot, so we thought about finding 2 poses that cooperate and make a cool scene. It was scary, how fast it did click and everything fell together so easy… really scary but as well awesome – hard to describe for me *giggles*

We had so much fun and soon we realized, how much we both are interested in having an “interaction” between the avatars, to have an interesting picture in the end. The more we fooled around, the more the concept came to live and I am still blown alway by the end result 🙂 It was so much fun, I really hope we will find a time and an idea again to work together for another picture.

To see Abyss version just clickHEREwhere you as well can find all her incredible, awesome work on her stream, too!

Thank you so much Abyss for an awesome evening and the fun we had!!!
