Tuning in on your Saxophone

TUNES

You’ll never know that you had all of me.
You’ll never know the poetry you’ve stirred in me.
Of all the stars I’ve seen that shine so brightly,
I’ve never known or felt in myself so rightly,
It’s in me.
And you know it’s for real.
Tuning in on your saxophone.

Captivating…

Sometimes it is just a Discord call and you got a new sponsor for your blogging *giggles* It wasn’t planned in any way… it just happened. I did follow the releases or Rubedo for quite a while, since my friend Chey  told me she got a custom make up for one of her contests made by Foxy Ruby, owner and designer behind Rubedo.  Today when we talked I teased her with the question if she thinks, that I would qualify for being a Rubedo blogger when we again talked about the brand again – 5 minutes later I was a Rubedo blogger *giggles* I am always a bit nervous when it comes to makeup, as I do not have too  many good experiences with blogging makeup, since I am not the typical beauty, closeup, clean blogger. But Chey is the blogger manager and she knows my work so… lets give it a try!

I do like creative, unusual makeups and eyeshadows, they do give a face character and you can do so much with a certain color and style. When I tried the “Titania” eyeshadow,I instantly had the vision of one of those popular tattoo models in RL. I do not remember her name, but she does wear colorful and bold makeup when she does TV shows, events and interviews. I do like the dark casual, urban, Goth looks a lot anyway and so it wasn’t too hard to come up with a matching look 😉

To match the “Titania” eyeshadow from Rubedo, I used one of the lipsticks I recently got at Top1Salon. So the green was set already, as I liked that combo of black and green (certainly the eyeshadow comes in 13 more colors so you can find the one you need for your look) and I came across my usual problem – one shade of green now I need to find fingernails with the perfect matching shade of green – that can end up in a headache! But not of you have the awesome “My Nails” from L’Emporio! You can hide the text in the nails and with their amazing HUD you can have preset colors PLUS you can edit them with a colorfield.

Vegas now does tattoos that work with the LeLUTKA EvoX heads. At Uber they do have one of their newest releases called “Siren” and it perfectly matched the look which I was going for. The incredible amazing necklace was made by AsteroidBox while the cool rings are from Eclipse Art Studio. Now who made that super cool glasses? Certainly CerberusXing! Those glasses are available in gold and silver and you get a HUD to texture the lenses in 8 different colors and as well each of them separately.

I am super excited what else the Rubedo makeup will challenge me to develop – I am looking forward to it 😉

Thank you Chey and Foxy for the opportunity ♥

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // July 28th – August 23rd

The Tagan Piercing Set is a perfect choice for the piercing enthusiast. Numerology is at play throughout this set, and can be interpreted in different ways. On the one hand, the three lateral piercings along the nose (two bridge and one nasalang) result in 6 prominent spikes jutting out from the sides of the nose. However, the addition of the cross could be considered turning this 6 into a 7. Then, the Tagan set features a pair of chains connecting the nostril ring to a ring on the helix of the ear. This chain, again, has six spikes emerging from it, which are resolved to a perfect 7 by the addition of the cross. The full Tagan piercing set is worn on both sides of the face, decorating your face with 6-6-6 spikes.. and 3 crosses, which if you choose to interpret it that way, resolve that into 7-7-7. However, you may not want to be so fully decked out. For full customizability, with the Tagan set, you can pick and choose which parts of the set you wish to wear using the HUD, from each spike down to each chain or piercing. Comes in 10 color options, which can be applied and mixed across the set. The Tagan Piercing Set is unrigged and may be fitted to and worn on any head.

Wicca’s Originals has developed the Raha Armguards. These unique guards are not ‘worn’ in the traditional sense, they become a part of you. A series of four screws pierce through flesh and anchor directly to your bones, keeping them securely in place. They provide a hard surface on the top of the forearm, which can be used to provide shielding from blunt or piercing weapons. But more importantly, while they may be painful for the wearer, they provide the ability to inflict so much more pain on others. A set of 9 curved fin style blades are arranged, giving the arm very vicious backhand potential. Sometimes the mere sight of them can be so intimidating and unsettling that it can disarm or unbalance your foe.. or prey. Whether you get these for yourself, or to experiment on another, the Raha Armguards fill a special place in the Wicca’s Originals augmentation line. They come in 10 colors for the guard material, screw heads, and blades, and are fitted for Maitreya, Legacy (F), and Gianni bodies, as well as an unrigged form for other arms.

There’s no one no one to replace you, you’re the one that shines for me.
Gotta go where no one else can go, I’m the one, the one that will follow.
And I see a ray of light, you’re my beacon in the night.
I can feel, feel you coming, gonna kiss the deadly sin.
and I hear, hear you calling; now I’m answering
I still can see you and I’m at your side.
I still can feel you, cause I’m there, on the other side.

Come with me to the other side, follow me to the other side…

Finally I have summer holidays and now I can focus on catching up blogging properly 😉

The last 2 school weeks with exams, this year the floods and certainly Covid adding up to the last school weeks stress, made it insanely awful – more than usual… I was so exhausted sometimes, that I just sat on my couch when I was done with RL work and fell asleep not even finishing my coffee. Who knows me .. knows as well I would NEVER waste a coffee… so you can go figure how that past weeks felt kinda.

Anyways, now I do have holidays and the fun can begin \o/

And it does begin with great news from Midnight Order and some of my favorite creators 😉

Midnight Order is done by Second Life Syndicate. They do put a lot of love and a hell of  work in their events to have the best designer of the grid creating for their themed events. I love their themes a lot as they are always something out of the box. With the Midnight Order they touch the dark fantasy and mystical souls and certainly that is something for me *winks*

Today I am coming to you with amazing news from cinphul. They created 2 amazing items for the Midnight Order event, the “council of flesh” dress and boots. A perfect set, even if you can purchase both separately. You will get a HUD with 7 different colors for the base texture as well as the freaking awesome claws all over the dress and boots – simply a must have for all those, who love the dark side or life or having fun in being creative for pictures and art!

Certainly I had to pair that incredible outfit with some other designs that just fit in the same mindset *grins wicked* So my tattoos for this special look must come from Nefekalum Tattoos. The  top one called “Archaic” and with its materials, the long sleeves and the amazingly ornamented chest perfectly matches that crazy look while the lower one called “Redemption” gives a nice accent instead of wearing stockings – I hate having ‘naked’ legs so that tattoo just was the perfect fit for me.

Last but not least… for an ‘insane’ look I needed my “Ziekling’s Tongue” from CerberusXing and the “Damned Ears from L’Emporio. I immensely enjoyed to create those pictures and it did remind me that I really should go for the ‘crazy’ looks more often again. For those who care about me – I am ok it just was fun I didn’t drift off to the dark side completely again… yet 😉

Wicca’s Originals @ Uber // July 25th – August 22nd

The latest style-blending fashion by Wicca’s Originals is the Lena Top. Drawing inspiration from renaissance blouses and corsets, the Lena Top puts a modern spin on it by trimming the traditional cut down to a crop top. The two-part top incorporates a flattering, low, horizontal cut short sleeved blouse with a short, under-bust corset to lift the bust and create a tantalizing shelf of feminine flesh. The cleavage is teased with the inclusion of a mini-harness, which binds a choker vertically to a strap worn around the waist, hinting at one’s darker desires for power play. This clever merger of styles creates an genuine new look, and the blouse can be optionally removed. The Lena Top can be customized between 10 color options on the different material layers and metals, fitted for Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Maitreya Flat, Legacy (F), and Legacy Perky bodies.

The Hawkeye is a superdermal augment designed by Wicca’s Originals. This device is worn over either eye, and is equipped with some of the latest in neural interfacing. Unintrusive and reversible by design, induction connectors tap into a few points to interact directly with the optical nerve and spatial processing center of the brain. Like its superhero namesake, the Hawkeye empowers its wearer with preternatural vision, allowing for extreme precision and range with marksmanship, the ability to heighten the contrast of moving objects, or to lock onto and track a target moving in a busy scene. If connected to a storage device, it also can record the footage seen. The Hawkeye comes in 10 color options for the materials and metals, and is unrigged for a unisex fit on any head.
