Strip Away The Layers

The closer she looked, the more the colors blurred. Dull, lifeless, common. Nothing to write home about, if she actually had someone to write to. It was a minor piece by an insignificant artist, who led an unremarkable life. Just like me, Naia thought to herself.

With a heavy sigh, Naia pulled off the magnified glasses she used to resort paintings at the Metropolitan Museum and tossed them on her worktable. The throbbing behind her eyes was there when she woke up that morning and nothing; shower, food or coffee, eased her discomfort. Considering the shower was lukewarm at best, the food bland and the coffee weak, it’s not like there was much hope.

For seven years, two as an unpaid intern, Naia worked in the cold, temperature controlled basement of the museum for long hours and low pay. Her clothes were from the bargain racks at the local Goodwill. Long skirts down to her ankles, and oversized, shapeless sweaters; all meant to hide her body. She might be 26 years old, but Naia looked as old as the other two basement dwellers who worked nearby; both close to retirement age.

After rubbing her eyes with the heels of her hands, Naia looked up at the clocked and noticed it was after six; time to go home. Mr. Smith and Mr. Jones, heaven help her, those were their actual names, had already shuffled out, leaving Naia alone. No hellos. No goodbyes. No conversation day in and day out. It was like working in a morgue with walking corpses.

Naia gathered her belongs and made her way out of the museum. She arrived at the bus stop in time to see the 6:15 chug away down the street. With her bag clutched tightly to her stomach, Naia sat gingerly on the edge of the bench and waited for the next bus. What else could she do, but wait.

Two hour later, Naia walked the final block to her tiny efficiency apartment with a bag containing two soggy tacos and a warm soda from the whole-in-the-wall place around the corner. Just like work, she lived in the basement of a converted brownstone that had seen better days a century ago. As she drew closer, the building manager came out of the front entrance with an overflowing cardboard box. Without fanfare, he dropped the box on top of the trash cans with a grunt of disgust, and then climbed the high stoop as if it were Mt. Everest.

To enter her shabby little space, Naia had to descend a few steps to a door beneath that stoop. As she passed the trash cans, Naia caught sight of a familiar item in the discarded box. Naia reached out and fingered the well worn boots worn by Tillie in 3B. They found Tillie a few days ago when the manager went up to demand she turn down the music blasting from her crappy stereo, dressed in just her underwear and the needle still in her arm. Bet that stereo is now in the manager’s apartment.

Looking around to see if anyone was watching, Naia grabbed the box and hurried down to her apartment. Once safely inside, Naia dropped the forgotten food onto an old, scarred table and carried the box to her bed; which was no more than a thin mattress on top of a wooden pallet. The single room contained a toilet, shower (without any walls), sink and a tiny closet. No kitchen – only a hotplate on top of a small chest of drawers.

One by one, Naia emptied the contents of the box on to the mattress. A couple short skirts, a tank top, a black button down blouse, a red pullover blouse and a thin black sweater. All that remained were the thigh high boots and what looked like a child’s diary.
Naia stripped down to her underwear and dropped back down on to her bed. As if driven by a force unknown, Naia slipped into the boots. A little snug around the toes, but otherwise the leather hugged Naia’s legs like they were made just for her. Naia couldn’t help but stare at her legs like they were a new, strange creature she had never seen. And she couldn’t help but wonder about the woman who wore them.

With the diary in hand, Naia scooted back on the bed until her back rested against the wall; only a thin pillow to protect her skin against the rough, exposed brick. She turned on the small lamp that sat on the floor and worked the clasped open on the small book.

At the beginning, the diary was filled with girlish hopes and dreams. Pretty dresses. Parties. A puppy. As a teenager, Tillie dreamed of becoming a singer. Loved. Adored. Famous. Soon after that the entries turned dark. Names of men. What they made her do. What they paid her. How they hurt her. The last entries were nothing more than incomprehensible ramblings and unreadable scrawls.

Naia didn’t realize she was crying until her salty tears fell on the last page. She looked around the place she called home and her stomach turned. Her life could be reduced to a cardboard box carelessly thrown onto a trash can. With gentle hands, Naia carefully removed the boots as if they were fragile and costly and returned them to the box. Each piece of clothing, neatly folded, was returned to the box. Last, the diary was laid on top with respect, as though Naia was placing flowers upon Tillie’s grave.

Staring down at the carton that now rested beside her dresser, Naia was determined not to meet the same fate. For the first time in her life, Naia wanted to fight for something. She was ready to fight for a new and better life.
Naia no longer wanted to just exist. She wanted to live.

I’ve had it with them, I’ve had it with you, I’ve had it with all this – I want room service! I want the club sandwich, I want the cold Mexican beer, I want a $10,000-a-night hooker!

May It Be For Me

May it be sexy and sleek, to make a man’s knee’s weak.

May it make me look hot, and I will love it a lot. May it be worn different ways, so I can I use it different days.

May It fit several bodies, so many can look like hotties.

May it come in many colors, so I can be unlike all the others. May it be available soon, like this very afternoon.

May it be for me, wouldn’t you agree.

Relax…

Finally RL gives me some room to breathe and I can write another post today. The 2 weeks Easter Holidays are over way too fast.Ssometimes I question myself where the time has gone. It was like usual… if you have to work the weeks crawl in an awful slow way and if you have holidays they fly by so fast.

Today I come to you with an amazing new outfit and boots from AsteroidBox, cool hair made by no.match and amazing accessories by CerberusXing and L’Emporio – detailed information blow the second picture as always 😉

It miss really Saturday again already after 2 weeks of holidays and I feel, I could use at least one more if not even two *giggles* But it is what it is and so I will hurry to slide in a few more posts that got side tracked due Covid, Easter with family and taking care of my Mom. The goal was to do at least one post ever 2 days during my holidays, but life never goes as intended I guess.

When I did todays pictures, I wanted to do something green, matching that awesome backdrop from Paparazzi called “Cannabis Shop”. You can find it at the actual round of Equal10. Certainly it had to be something grunge and cool and what would fit better than one of the newest outfits from AsteroidBox.

I do not want to bore you all with all the details you can see anyway on the pictures… I LOVE the incredible texture work of AsteroidBox and CerberusXing and i never made a secret out of that either 😉

I hope you had a great Easter everyone!

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // March 28th – April 23th

Bright Lights, Cyber Nights

Long, boot clad legs stretch out of the limousine door. Lights flash as cameras click away to get the first pictures of the rising new star of the blockbuster movie, Cyber Nights.

A delicate hand reaches out and the driver quickly takes it. With the grace of a predatory cat, the woman slowly rises from the car as though the world awaits her arrival. And it does.

Fans scream her name as journalists and bloggers shout out questions about the movie and her life. Lips curve into a Cheshire cat smile as Cybil simply gives them all a princess wave before moving toward the theater hosting the movie’s premier.

Dressed in vibrant pink from head to toe, looking like she stepped off the theater screen of the futuristic movie, Cybil pauses as the paparazzi get their fill of photos. With pale pink hair in a bob cut and a wide, opaque silver visor, all that can be seen of her face is a pert nose and bright pink lips.

The shimmering holo-pink bodysuit barely covers her voluptuous curves, where her leather wedge boots cover her legs all the way up to her ass cheeks. Pink and silver gloves cover her milky white skin all the way to the shoulder. Cybil is a vision of the picture perfect cyber heroine she portrays in the film.

Half way down the fuchsia carpet, no red carpet for this rising star, Cybil stops to sign autographs for a group a tween girls who have all adopted her many different looks from the movie. Before Cybil heads into the theater, she invites the girls to pose with her for some pictures.

Safely inside, Cybil does a quiet televised interview for a popular entertainment news network before she is escorted to her theater seat. She dutifully sits through the film, even though she has seen it in a private screening at the studio.
Hours later and several wardrobe changes later to make sure no one followed her home, Cybil disappears into the Hollywood lights.

With the flash and fantasy gone, the woman beneath the hype wearily opens the door to a modest one bedroom loft. Once the world is locked away behind a steel door and several deadbolt locks, Anne pulls off the hoodie and baseball cap and breaths a sigh of relief. Old, worn sneakers are toed off at the door and she pads barefoot to the kitchen for a soda.

Gone is the Hollywood darling. All that is left is a fresh-faced, quiet woman people ignore when they pass her by. Unremarkable looks, unremarkable childhood, unremarkable life. No one thinks twice about Anne. Cybil is the superstar.

Armed with a soda and a bag of potato chips, Anne settles down on her overstuffed sofa with a warm blanket and her lazy calico cat, Patches. With only the streetlights shining through the windows, Ann sits in her darkened apartment to watch her favorite movie.

A sense of peace and contentment washes over Anne as the credits roll across the screen. Bette Davis, now there is a star!

Made for SL20 // April 2022 // https://www.sl20.org/copy-of-march-2022

Finally I have holidays… Easter Holidays!

I really did desire them this time, as the times at school are really became more and more rough. Covid added it’s part and explaining or talking about the war in Europe to the kids didn’t make it easier either.

When I woke up this morning, it felt like someone took a huge rock off my shoulders. I woke up and with the feeling I just could stay in bed, the day felt so much more nice as it did the past few month. I sounds weird but it really felt like that.

With all my new freedom for the next 2 weeks, I would love to work on some ideas I had in mind over the past months – I hope I can do as much as possible, to get all my visions out of my head into pictures and styles. Todays picture, was made for the actual SL20 magazine and the theme was shoes. I made in total 4 pictures and certainly I had to wear some of my personal favorite shoes.

DRD is one of my favorite store for ages. I admire Jaimy’s texture skills and her incredible creativity. The details on all of her designs are stunning and every time I wear her things I discover more little things I didn’t see before. With the sticker Stompers she just right went into my heart. Those are shoes I wore myself for many years. Her love and eye for the details shows again with all those little stickers and the overall used look of the shoes.

But now… it is time for new visions and adventures in pictures and looks 😉
