Finesmith Designs – Inspiration Sets March/April Part I

Finally I made it to snap my wonderful inspiration set of the Finesmith Muse 2011 contest. On the 1st of May, Finesmith Designs had a wonderful show, produced by Kabuki Boutique. The show was called “11 Rooms”. Each room had a special scene.

Each model with it’s own inspiration set had a room that was made especially for that set. Taylor Wassip was acting in a bedroom, Luralie Bailey danced in a club scene, Rissa Friller was in a shopping rage at a Jewelry Store, Aliyeh Yifu, the little mermaid  was swimming in an amazing underwater scenerie, Shena Neox was putting together a wonderful style in a dressing room, Vivienne Coppola showcased her awesome set in a cabaret show, Jamee Sandalwood wandered around the forrest, Sy Whitesong hovered through the downtown at night, myself was captured in a dungeon, Melanie Sauterau (for the show replaced by Serene Faith) strolled through an Art Gallery and Rusalka Callisto was turning her body in front of a camera in a photostudio.

During the show always one room was opened and each model has it’s own song to showcase the jewelry with a short choreography of poses. The audience was sitting in the middle of a black room and one room after another opened and a short story was read in a very interesting way not like the usual scripts of fashion shows. For this blog post I for sure wanted to show you the incredible set yula Finesmith made for me and as well I will try to show you all the wonderful sets one by one :). Luckily, I got the script afterwards so I can give you a short impression what was happening there :). At this point a big thank you to Xenobia Foxclaw who did this awesome script 🙂

As I mentioned… my room was a little dungeon. All in red and black with a cage and candles. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kabukimodels/5679571069/in/photostream) and for sure a text that matched this theme perfectly 😉

“Wicca Merlin was not born into the life of slavery. She entered it willingly with her eyes wide open. She adored her master and did his bidding. From cleaning his house to pleasing him in bed…she did it all without a word of complaint.

She knew he particularly liked to find her in this elaborate cage that hung in the dungeon surrounded by candles. She knew she looked especially pretty in candle light, and she loved the way the metals glinted and the candles set them ablaze on the walls. Tonight she wore his favorite set of jewelry – the Finesmith set that had been made to fit her. They felt warm and sensuous, and they fulfilled the promise he made when she signed the contract that made her his slave. Wicca would only enter such a relationship if the reward were her own set of jewelry from Yula. Wicca was quite sure she had the better end of that bargain.”

The second set I would like to show you, was made for Melanie Sauterau. For the show Serene Faith our actual MVW replaced Melanie as she was not able to make to the the show.

“Tonight is the opening of a new gallery exhibit. The pieces have been selected with great care to show the best work of this renowned artist. She is so young to be so accomplished in photography, oils, marble, metal, and gems. Her metal work is undoubtedly what she is best known for. I’m so very honored to be part of this exhibit. I’ve heard people say how very life-like I am. Some have even reached out to touch my skin to assure themselves that I am not a living model, or they watch my breast to see if I breath. I don’t understand how I cannot be living though – I have feelings, I love, I cry, I wonder..
I wonder who this person is who I’m named after – Melony Inspiration. Melony is a beautiful name, she must be beautiful to have inspired a work such as I am and the jewelry that I wear. I wonder if she is living still – perhaps a long lost love or a mother remembered fondly. I wonder what the story behind me is…I wonder.”

The last one for today yula made for Vivienne Coppola. A wild and fresh set that totally is a must have for every fashionista!

” Of all of her friends, Vivienne Coppola is the perfect one to appear in a dream cabaret. She has a wonderful collection of vintage flapper clothing. She is also dramatic in her behavior and her movements. She is even known to burst out into song and dance right on the street.
Even her jewelry, from Finesmith Designs, is perfect for her dramatic flair. The pieces seem somehow exuberant just like Vivienne. The band, the music, the dance, the beat of the drum – it all seems so full of life.
Listen, perhaps you can hear her now coming down the hall singing, “Stroke that shiny coat, stroking is the antidote, stroke that it’s a start, only for the wild at heart” – such a sexy song to sing and dance to. Yes, Vivienne is the perfect one to appear in this cabaret.”

All of the March / April inspiration sets are limited to 50 sets each and you can as well purchse them in single parts! As I said there are 10 new inspiration sets and I will show them to you one after another, so stay tuned for all the other lovely piece of arts created for wonderful models by yula Finesmith, owner and genius goddess of Finesmith Designs!

H&S goes Avantgarde!

Lately I got a very interesting outfit from a store I did not even know before. Nicki Vervain, owner and designer of Hot and Sparkling Fashion Company gave me this wonderful outfit called “Reaching”. I was very curious and went home unpacking it and what I saw just amazed me! A wonderful composition of waving huge prims in silver. The outfit is made of 4 clothing layers and 4 prims to attach. Private parts are covered by the clothing layers 😉 The huge neckpart with the 2 shoulder attachments and a center one, wave dreamy around you with every move, as well as the skirt part does. I have to admit I was definitely surprised and I will have to make my way to the H&S Mainstore to see what else Nicki Vervain created 🙂

Thetra Blackheart:” One word describes the Eclettica “Tres Chic!”  Using only the best in Kid leather, Italian lace,  and solid brass accessories command  it’s posche look.  The Jackets raised shoulder and upright collar compliment  the beauty of a womans slender  neck.

SynsualSyn Sawson for “Claim the Fame”: Week 5 – Leather & Lace

SynsualSyn Sawson: “The Female Outfit “DeVille”  marries leather & lace in a stunning and unique way.  Syn shows off her shading & texturing talent on two of the hardest colors, black & white.  The form fitting, two toned leather body suit begs to be touched while the lace on the upper chest gives you tantalizing glimpses of skin.  The black belt gives the body suit definition with an added pop from the jewels that match the lovely multi-faceted diamond necklace and bracelet.  The two toned stole brings sophistication and a bit more softness to an already sexy, fashionable, and classy outfit.

The Deville Male Outfit shows just how hot men look in tight leather with the two toned, black & white pants with cuffs, also showing off her shading & texturing skills.  The formal jacket with collar and trim is supple & elegant.  The shading and seam on the back of the jacket, as well as the collar and split bottom trim, bring this jacket to life.  The jacket is left unbuttoned to show off the male physique as well as the white undershirt with split formal cuffs and straight collar.  The flexuous belt and two toned lace pocket hankies give this look the perfect finishing touches.  The complete outfit is a statement in couture elegance and style.

Lexi Vargas: “Gentlemen Dare.
– ‘Dare’ to wear this edgy combination of leather and lace for maximum impact 🙂 But don’t worry, the unique way the jacket is cut makes wearing red lace look masculine.   The matching black leather pants dip low onto the hipline leaving a sizeable portion of torso available for appreciative viewing. ‘Dare’ is complemented with stand up collar and cuffs subtly edged in red.

Ladies-Sweet Leather
‘Sweet Leather’ makes leather seem soft and feminine. The fit n flare skirt consists of panels of lace enclosed in leather that flow to the floor in the latest maxi length. The bodice of sumptuous white leather with a lace panel at the front and black laces to pull in the waist which finish in a bow. Ruffles of leather define the decolletage and  hipline adds to the beautiful proportions of this dress. ‘Sweet Leather’ is the perfect outfit for a midsummer’s eve 🙂

Inga Wind:” Nari seduces with her bare right shoulder, while separate layers of leather and rich lace meet on the other, binding into a strap. Both layers cling to each breast, giving a hint of the cleavage in between, while leading the eye down to the softer ruffles of leather attached to the intricate belt. The set also includes medium long pants with delicate leather flare extensions. ”

“Nairen is an eye-catching sleek indian-leather inspired outfit, blending together the eastern and western accents. The top features traditional asian sleeves and Mao collar, leading the eye down across a layer of truly golden lace. Decorated with distinctive details along the edges, the long sculpted extension is fastened with a half-seethrough, half-leather tailored couture belt.”

Inga Wind: “Josephine is an elegant come back to the jazzy 20s flapper style dresses, sprinkled with tiny ornaments and pearl strands along the edges of the two-layered top. Extending into a short and straight  feathery skirt, this sleeveless dress comes with matching decorative gloves leaving your shoulders and legs bare. The outfit is finished with a stylish net-hat, complimenting your bobbed hair with an attached blooming flower.

Joe is a classic suit for the oldschool tommy gun story lovers, featuring a tucked in buttoned up white shirt. Enhanced by sculpted sleeves and collar jutting from underneath the jacket, the outfit compliments the chest with its fancy matching tie. Tip your Joe wide-rim fedora hat and the street is yours.”

SynsualSyn Sawson: “The 1920’s Garbo Flapper Dress was inspired and designed around Hollywood’s Legendary Screen Actress and Fashion Icon, Gretta Garbo. Oralee Fairey shows you how the plunging neckline and the ornate hand beaded work on the front of the dress draws the eye to the allure of the cleavage and down to the shapely hips. The diaphanous layered skirt floats with every step on the red carpet. This ensemble comes with a feathered headband embellished in jewels.

The Fairbanks was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks the swashbuckling actor, screen writer and producer shown by the dashing Greywolf Fairey. From his Italian silk scarf tucked into his impeccably tailored double breasted suit, he is the epitome of the 1920’s debonair man about town. His hat worn at the 20’s angle of the rakishly devilishly handsome man, so hot he sizzles. Both designed and fitted by SynsualSyn Sawson for Claim to Fame.”

SynsualSyn Sawson for “Claim the Fame”: Week 3 – Darkness

SynsualSyn Sawson: “Wicca Merlin plays the fantasy roll of Princess Bellona of the Dragon Slayers as she gets dressed to go to war. Princess Bellona is in her dark castle, it’s dusk on the night of a strong full moon, she’s feels the dampness of the night start to roll in as she slips her Royal Purple Velvet skirt over her hips, sitting on the small of her back draping grazing her mid-thigh.

She checks in the mirror as she pulls the gold strap of her panty just over the top of her hips snapping each side against her skin, the gold metal embeds in to her skin. She sits on the stool reaching down to roll her soft purple velvet stockings over her legs tugging and turning them perfectly to mid-thigh. The stiletto heel holds her balance as she is bent over tightening the gold strap of her boots, fingers softly touching the Magical Green jewels encased in the gold band atop each boot.

She reaches behind her to grab her leather corset, slowly wrapping it around her torso. Princess Bellona smells the leather as she pulls the corset into place, fitting perfectly over her rib cage, cupping her breasts she feels the cold metal of the gold sewn in to the hem pressed deeply against her skin.

The velvet collar is latched around her neck with the prim the Magical Green jewels sitting on her shoulders; she can see the glimmer the jewels emit. Last thing she slips on are the soft purple long gloves after she locks the gold cuffed wrist bands with matching Magical Green jewels around her wrists.

This is how she begins every evening as the Dragon Slayer, one of the most elegant, well dressed Warriors known specially designed and fitted by SynsualSyn Sawson, Master in her field of design.


Harsch Sharktooth couldn’t be a more perfect Prince Drake of Ravenwolf, Prince of the Warrior Dragon Slayers. As he walks toward Princess Bellona, she sees a strong man, an honorable man, a man dressed as a Prince should be.

Poised and statuesque in his Black velvet and leather mixed pant, she notices the riveted studs wrapped around each thigh. As her eyes move up she sees the Magical Green Jewel on his belt, a faint green sparkle emits. His hands on his hips she eyes the polished studs attached to the leather encircling his wrists.
She moves her eyes to his chest and lock on the Dragon Slayer Crest etched into the armor of his breast-plate. The prim Titanium shoulder epaulets are sharply pointed making him tall and strong. A 5-carat Magical Green jewel sits just over his heart, what are the magical powers of this jewel? We shall see come sunrise.

With every step he takes, Price Drake’s black cloak sways behind him falling just above his silver studded boots as he stops inches in front of her. This is the ensemble of a noble Dragon Slayer. This is the design of SynsualSyn Sawson, Master designer to the Prince Drake of Ravenwolf.”
