Elegant and still young and modern?

Morgane+GizzA 001

Not too long ago Morgane Batista released a set of poses she named after me. During the development of the set, Morgane and me talked a lot and she asked me many things about me, as she wanted to have parts of me in that poses. After she send me the first 3 of them I was totally amazed. The first 3 poses were amazing they had some elegance, some fierce and some fresh and modern in them and I really loved them.

The after a while she poked me again and had another pose, a cool kneeling one that really looked like and 80’s magazine style model. I told Morgane that I loved the idea of some non standing poses for pictures and the 5th became an amazing sit as well 😉 For the last, the 6th pose, Morgane reached deep in the trick box 😉 She made an editorial pose that was leaning backwards (like you can see on the first pic).

When Morgane asked me if I would model for the vendor of her Wicca Merlin poses, I certainly accepted gladly. It was a great honor for me 🙂 I asked Morgane if she has something in mind about the styling for the vendor picture and she just said ” Can you do me something Wicca?”. I giggled, as it really sounded funny and tried to style something ‘Wicca’. I remembered a look I did longer ago for a charity and pulled it back up. I was not anymore satisfied so I redid the styling until I thought it could look ‘Wicca’. I prepared 2 more but Morgane liked the first one the most, as I did 😉 The amazing vendor pic was shot by Sue Moonwall, a wonderful sweet Lady that really has patience as her second name 😉 Thanks for the amazing picture Sue!

For today’s styling, I decided to go with my outfit from my shift at GizzA today. The “Lordly” outfit is longtime favourite of mine and at the moment it is set to a discounted prize at GizzA, so I thought I can spotlight it 😉

The amazing huge collar comes from Finesmith and is called “Guilt, The shoes I found at Pixelfashion. I liked the combination of the woolen legwarmers that overlaps the pumps. With one of the latest releases from LeLutka I completed my styling. I liked the elegant and still modern look and for me it was kinda of a business attire and an appropriate outfit for my shift today 😉

Today I was in a little black mood again and wanted to do something semi formal, elegant but still something artistic. Sometimes you have something in your mind and it just does not wanna come out. I was trying for over 2 hours … different outfits, accessories.. nothing wanted to ‘click’ in my mind and set something free or meet my imagination or feelings. The all of a sudden I came across the “Haudrey Night” head piece from SoliDea FoliEs. That was a great basic to start with. I looked through all the new releases from SoliDea FoliEs to find a matching outfit. The “Sofia” dress was the perfect outfit and slowly the idea for the style and picture were growing inside my head 🙂

The tight shoulder free dress and the wonderful head piece let room for some extravagant jewelry. Not too long ago Finesmith released the set that was made for the Finesmith Muse 2014 poster. The set contains two chest and two body parts. in silver with light green gems and light pink flowers. The “Haudrey Night” head piece has some black pearls on it and i wanted to bring them back, so I added the bracelet from the “Maniko” set as well from Finesmith.

Now I needed some scenery and I have no clue why but a ‘Jewelry Tree’ was stuck in my mind  all of a sudden. I did not wanna have a spring tree with lots of petals and stuff and I remembered an old dead tree I bought ages ago for an event deco. To decorate the tree with jewelry I needed something that brings something organic with it. The”Love doesn’t grow on trees” set! yes that could be an idea. Finesmith released this set last year and I already fell in love with it  as it came out. The combination of organic parts like the wooden parts of the eye ornaments and the wonderful combination of all those different materials and shapes in the necklace were just perfect. I only had to resize them to make them really big so that I could decorate the dead tree with them.

Now I only had to place myself into that tree and my imagination became true 🙂

Ascension

Mantis Oh 002

Explore the seven levels of the Ascension tower and lose yourself in a mysterious world where musical notes appear from under your feet, robotic bumblebees hover close by and particles shimmer in the alien atmosphere.

Create your own music alone or with friends by jumping on the glowing sound pads and solve riddles under the illuminated eyes of the mantis sphinx!

Sound is important to the Ascension experience, so make sure your local sounds are on and walk through the whole sim to discover mystical places and secret trails.

Created by Mantis Oh (Cari Lekebusch in RL) you can also look forward to a schedule of Techno music events and DJ sets from RL record label H-Productions.

It’s time to ascend…

Mantis Oh 001

With this words I made my way to the Ascension sim, that was buited on LEA 16 by Mantis Oh. Mantis Oh is well known for futuristic environments and objects in SL. “Ascension is a fun and immersive experience that can only be found in virtual worlds. It is a build based on the intuition and actions of each individual visitor and encourages collective consciousness and social interaction through a range of sound displays, visuals and futuristic objects.”, the official press release says and I have to say, I was not dissapointed after I explored the sim, looked tried all of the great installations and saw all this amazing buildings. The Ascension sim is really worth a trip. Do not wait too long as it will be only available till the end of May.

That was not all as Persia told me, that he not only builted that amazing sims and arranged all that great DJ events, Mantis Oh as well creates prefab homes and … what really caught my attention, he creates wonderful futuristic acessories. The “MartialArts Armguards”, the “Martial Arts Waistguard”and the “Third Eye Tiara” headpiece are made by Mantis Oh, owner and creator of Hybrid Productions. All of his pieces are incredible detailed and you can only imagine how long Mantis sit and worked on them. The belt with the ornaments and the to little bags where you can put bottles or what ever in are as well great for a fantastic roleplay 😉 But for me it is a wonderful fashion accessory, as O really love to experiment with futuristic ideas ;).  The “Third Eye Tiara” reminded me of the ‘Visor’ of Lieutenant Commander Georgdi Laforge of the Star Trek – The next generation movies and so it was clear I had to do a post about something futuristic 😉 The armparts and the belt as well have little glowing effects, that are not static. There is many more awesome creations of Mantis Oh at the Hybrid Productions Mainstore and I am sure this is not my last post about them 😉

Mantis Oh 003

I thought for a longertime about a cool styling for the “Outland” from [sys], that is sold at the 100 Block event. The cool blue & black pants outfit perfectly goes together with the acessories from Hybrid Productions. The top has a very sexy touch at it looks like it would be sheet while it is totally opaque. The pants are mesh made and very modern with the loose style. The “Vouge” shoes are as well from [sys] and made the perfect addition to the whole look.

So I only had to find the right jewelry and hair. For the jewelry I remembered that Sora Tatham, one of the genius designers of Gabriel, gave me a wonderful mesh set. She said the “Curb Chain” set would be her first try for mesh jewelry and I was totally amazed as I put it on. The jewelry comes with a HUD that lets you chnage the texture of the jewelry to 3 different colors. The hair comes from EMO-tions. I loved the way how the mohawk looks lightly ‘messy’ at the ends and the wonderful made braids that are covering the head. A nice mixture of different hairstyles together on one 😉

So… it’s time to ascend… 😉

Models always have to look amazing, be dressed perfectly, hair has to be styled always great, the makup always has to look fresh and certainly models always have to be in shape 😉

TUNES – The Model

So what to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon? Sure go for some workout!

That we even can look awesome during our fitness sessions, GizzA made the perfect workout outfits 😉 You can choose between 4 wonderful colors and the outfit includes all you need. The top, the pants, shoes and even the legwarmers. At least you do not have the excuse you would have nothing to wear or you would need too much time to dress before you can go and train a bit 😉

As it is never nice to do workout alone, I went with Falbala to have some fun and chat a bit while working on our shape 😉 We had lots of fun and nice talks until we both decided, we need a shower 😉

And what you do after a good workout? Yes you go for a nice coffee and some more chit chat 😉

Thanks Falli, for the amazing pic and the fun we had during that photosession 😉

Black & White Fantasies

Violator full

A few days ago soraya Vaher, owner and designer of Violator, released 2 more parts for her new Prêt-à-porter collection. The “Hit me Up” top and the “Luxury Pants” in black & white. Not too long ago, I said I am addicted to black & White anyways, so this combination together with the color matching version of the “Pride Stiletto Ankle Boots” just hit right up to my heart 😉

The amazing “Luxury Pants” come with so many details and accessories already and you can just put them on, no ned to think about any additional accessories. The long pant ruffle that attaches at the right hip, the amazing spikes, the button in the front and the gems of the upper and lower leg are all extra attachments so you have a lot of different possibilities as well. The top comes with kinda the same options. Besides the mesh top you have the desicion of chest flowers the feathers at the shoulder, and as well the gems.

Again soraya made a wonderful ready-to-wear outfit for her new collection that is affordable for everyone 😉 To see the other new colors and releases you best take a look for yourself at the Violator Mainstore.

The Runway Perfect Hunt #4 – Part 6

TRPH #4 - Gizza Fulla

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in it’s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says “The hunt with models in mind” does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybody’s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

Today I would like to drag the spotlight over to GizzA. GizzA made an amazing half mesh/half prims gown for the hunt. The wonderful turquoise and white, tight gown fawns dreamy around the fashionistas shape. The top is shoulder free and lets a lot of free room for awesome jewelry. In my case for the “Foliole” set of Finesmith. The special color of this set was one on the OGlam specials in the past but this kind of red together with the incredible teal gem matched “The Runway Perfect Hunt” gown from GizzA. For the hairstyle I chose one of the new EMO-tions hairstyles called “Sessie”. The huge bun paired with the loosely wisps just made the dreamy look complete 😉

The Runway Perfect Hunt will last until the 30th of May so do not hesitate too long to grab your hunt prizes ;)

“College girl is on vacation” Mood…

Jezixxa full

Lately I was talking to Jezzixa Cazalet, who works for Prism since I can think of. After some other stuff, she told me very excited that she made her first own outfit and released it at Prism. Jezzixa was doing tutorials about seamless textures and in that process she started to make her own outfit to as well use them. Her first one was the “Diane Floral Dress” dress. A wonderful short mesh dress with matching shoes. The amazing spring pattern is available in different colors. I could not resist to mix and match around again so the shoes got lost in the process and I hope Jezzixa will not cut off my head for skipping the flat spring ballerinas 😉 Instead I used the “Studded Long Boots” from J’s. I have no clue why but I all of a sudden was in a “College girl is on vacation” mood and the idea of a girl that explores the world came to my mind. For sure you cannot explore the world in just a short dress.. what if you crouch or sit down in a non ladylike way… so I added the “LaLun Tights” from LeeZu. What else is part of a good tourist… ah I needed a bag for maybe some souvenirs and for sure a camera to bring back all the lovely moments I had during my trip 😉 Since it is springtime I wanted one of this huge floppy hats and some vintage sunglasses. For the glasses I fast found the right ones, the “Oversized Sunglasses” from Izzie’s. For the hat I was running around like crazy to find something that goes with the dress but I did not find the right color of the hat together with the right one for the headband. In the end I ran into Kyra Camels IM, owner and designer of Baboom, because she had this amazing floppy hat for the TRPH #4. She told me to come over that she can see the styling and the colors and immediately started to make me that matching hat to my outfit 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my little “mind trip” 😉

With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

I always had a weakness for black & white outfits and stylings and as I saw the hunt prize from location #23, Dot BE Fashion I would not resist to do another totally black & white look ;).  Boniefacio, owner and designer of Dot BE Fashion, made a wondeful 2 part outfit called “Female Outfit” for the 4th Runway Perferct Hunt. The long black mesh pants with the wide sleeves reminded me of the good old flares of the 70s. Together with the long, geometric black & white textured mesh top it gets a light touch of a retro style. To do not another totally retro style I decided to add one of my favourite 80s look hair and the “Britsh Loafers” from Redgrave, what pulled it more towards the 80s. To give it another more modern touch I added the awesome “Dahlink Wild Zebra” makeup from Zibska and the “Lips Stripes” from Silken Moon, wich both went amazing with the black & white “Female Outfit” top :).

The Runway Perfect Hunt will last until the 30th of May so do not hesitate too long to grab your hunt prizes ;)

The hunt is going very well, I saw many people at the various locations as I was looking around myself. Today’s featured locations would be #2 and #5, Headturners and Baboom Couture. The amazing “Kelly” dress with the super cute and huge hat are the contribution from Baboom. A wonderful summer dress in black and light pink. The shoulders are free from any lines and with the huge floppy hat it gives a real summer feeling 🙂

The lipstick and the bangles come from Headturners. There is a pair of nails as well going with them but I lately like my mesh hands so much, that I did not wanna fiddle around 8 hours, to make them fit to the mesh hands ;). The light pink lipstick goes perfectly with the “Kelly” gown.

News from BaOba

Sightsavers Baoba fulla

 Today I would like to show the amazing contribution of Baoba for the Sightsavers event. The amazing “Calla Green” hat. This amazing creation is the right accessory for the actual spring season. A green/white hat with an amazing Calla orchid at the top. The orchids looks so realistic with the wonderful textured white petals and the long yellow middle parts.. simply amazing!

This fresh and summer colors brought me to the idea to make a full yellow and green spring/summer look. Íf I try to style colors my memory always pulls me towards my LeeZu folder ;). Leezu Baxter made amazing grey, brown and black shaded clothing but as well she did strong colors that I really love.

I started with the “Me Like It Pants” in apple green. As it was totally other green tone I wanted to break the green to not look like a frog in the end 😉 and decided to go with the “Viela” dress top part in yellow. Since green, yellow-green and yellow are analogous colors they usually work very well if you choose the right tones.

To bring the yellow back again I put on the “Piazza Navona” ankle boots one of the latest show releases from LeeZu.For the jewelry I wanted something colorful but more modern and less elegant. I remembered the super cool “Deco” set from Baboom, combined with the “Orbital” collar from blackliquid and it matched the look perfectly, together with the new, mesh version of the “NifNif” gloves from LeeZu.

To finish off the styling I chose to put on some colorful make up, as well in green and yellow tones. My favourite store for that kind of makeups is Nuuna’s. Her crazy ideas and designs really can pimp many stylings in an awesome way 🙂
