“I lurk in the Shadows…”

TUNES

I lurk in the shadows
Moonlight touching the ground
I creep in the bushes
Await for you my love
My pale skin feels so cold
I need your warmth beside me
I feel your beating heart
You’re swept into my arms
Oh how I love this night
And the many nights to come
For a thousand lifetimes
I’ll make you my own
I am immortal, the living legend
One thousand years gone, the fallen angel
I am immortal, the living legend
One thousand years gone, hell’s incarnation

Revenge? – Together!

TUNES

Like Leo in The Revenant
Abel in that Bible bit
Revenge is sweet, isn’t it?
I really, really hope for it
I know that it won’t fix a thing
A song like this that I could sing for you
All the feels you make me do
A nightmare fucking coming true
I’m daydreaming
Let me count the ways
How I’ll get you, or how I’ll make you pay
Babe, I’m hurting and now you’ll feel the same

That’s my plan, that’s my plan, that’s my plan

We could do revenge, revenge, revenge, revenge
Together, together, together
We could take revenge, revenge, revenge
Revenge is sweet
[- P!NK -]

Again I am coming to you with an amazing release from Midnight Order. The event just passed its half time celebrations and there are some cool new items available there. Until the 20th of February you can get all those amazing designs, gifts and news.

Today I would like to draw your attention on the release of AsteroidBox. The ultra awesome “Sabien” Outfit is their release for the Midnight Order event. It is a full outfit, coming in one piece – pants, corset, blouse and the amazing detailed chest ruffles, held by that beautiful gem. With the HUD you get a lot of different colors to choose from. And with that already being more than just cool, you even get a bloody and a clean version for all colors and parts. I always adored the mesh and texture skills of Leith – owner and designer of AsteroidBox – and with this ensemble made for male and female he again outdid himself. A definite highlight is the wonderful waist corset with the amazing detailed decor – not to mention the whole outfit is a total highlight anyway *winks*

Since I have a fable for mix and match looks,  I added the cool “KnottArms” made by the Eclipse Art Studio. I know I already blogged about them, but they are so awesome, come in so many colors and two different fabrics, there’s is a lot of more room for showcasing them 😉 They can be found in a gacha machine at the main store by now.

For the shoes and that outfit you usually would think about some Victorian looking boots, but when I saw the “*Refill*” boots – now as well available for as a female version – I could not resist to add them to my outfit and they gave the whole look a neat little, mean twist. I really love to add opposites that turn the whole look again a slight little bit!

As already mentioned, the “Sabien Outfit” as well has male body versions available, which brought me to the idea I could do a cool couple shoot with Redclaw Inshan my RL/SL partner. Usually he tries to avoid shoots, as he hates to redress and style (or being styled by me, saying what to add and loose *grins*), but when I showed him that outfit he was all in for it. He decided to go for the bloody version of the outfit and as well added some cool boots from L’Emporio – can you tell I am addicted to their shoes and not only to the shoes! The only thing I rarely can change is his hair – he loves his “Dext” hair from A&Y, but for this picture it was totally fine for me and … it is kinda his trademark so I didn’t start an argument about it.

Some of the decor used for this pictures you as well can find at the Midnight Order. The amazing fountain, which you can see behind us was made by [ContraptioN] and the little mechanical heart (having a holding pose in it too, which we didn’t use for this picture) comes from Reliquary (!R!).

I hope I am able to do more pictures with friends and family soon. I really do enjoy them a lot, even if they are usually more work or take more time, as I am not that used to it as if I snap just myself 😉

For the current issue of the Eclipse Magazine, again I was allowed to showcase a role play genre. My choice this time was Vampires. I wanted to cover the more traditional and vintage side of it as well as the modern one.

For the more traditional, Victorian one I had the great pleasure, to get some company from Vivien Delancoure. It is always fun to do picture with friends, but usually I just do not dare to ask, as sometimes I take ages until I have my final pose, shot and background. I hate to waste others peoples time. With Vivien it was different. She is a blogger as well, making wonderful pictures and creates most of her poses by herself – Just take a look at her Flickr HERE. So she knows how long it can take and that made me brave enough to ask her, if she would like to join me for a picture. Her style is usually goth-romantic or dark romantic, which already was perfect for what I was going for. She was so sweet and patient and made the whole shoot to a lot of fun combined with a lovely chitchat 😉 I have a feeling, that this will be not our last shoot together as it really was awesome to work with her.

Thank you Vivien, for your time, patience and a new growing friendship I do not want to miss again 😉

My style you can find – like usual – below this post. For Vivien’s look, just take a look at her blog HERE.

Finally Friday – Hooray!

Today I would love to show you some of the mega, amazing designs released at Mainframe and Midnight Order!

Lets start with Mainframe, a cyberpunk, sci-fi orientated event, which had it’s debut last year already. With it’s great success it opened its doors again now in January!

What caught my eyes immediately, was one of the amazing release from Lanevo. This huge pack piece called “Maneater Machine” is just perfect for any cyborg, sci-fi or future orientated look, which steps away from basic human looks only. You can imagine an alien having technical tentacles, or a cyborg with super cool, multiple arms added on its back – it definitely does set a statement!

The “Cyber Pulse” gloves from L’Emporio&PL could even hold the control panel for that cool back piece at the lower arm where you can see all those cables and technical parts. The gloves are super detailed and certainly they are bento enabled. If you style for a sci-fi look you cannot miss Graves. Jackie is one of the best leather and latex designers I know and with her fantastic ideas and skills she brings us only the best for years now. The bodysuit is BoM and with that the perfect base for any cyber look! Another incredible store is Butanik83. I discovered them last year on the first Mainframe events and since then I always have an eye on their releases. Their designs are incredibly detailed and textured – very realistic!

What I will use for one of my next posts a well, as the pictures today do not really give a good showcase for it is the kick ass waist part – a metal spine replacement part, with a rough and basic look to it gives an amazing vibe for any android, gynoid or cyber avatar.

The boots with the awesome spikes at the front come from {PSYCHO:Byts} and were released at the Midnight Order event. With the cool spikes at the front and the tight straps at the thigh, they make a perfect addition to any kind of cool and smart looks.

Casting a Spell?

TUNES

She’s just testing her wings and if you give in to her, you’ll be just another feather in her cap-she’ll drop you in a flash.
She’s casting a spell, she’s casting a spell, well if she’s casting a spell, I can cast one as well.
So I said. “No, no, no, I ain’t falling for this!
This girl is built to tease; she’s only testing the efficiency of her kiss.”
She’s casting a spell.
Well, if she’s casting a spell; I can cast one as well.
She wants to check out how you check out on her test-bed:
Will you get in her book or will you go right to her head?
She’s casting a spell.
Well, if she’s casting a spell; I can cast one as well.
And so, I cast it right back on her, don’t you know my luck; she fell under the influence and then the thunder struck.
Now we’re casting a spell, we’re casting a spell-you can cast one as well!

The New LeLUTKA Girl Gang!

Head: LeLUTKA – “Irina 2.5” // Skin: YS&YS – “Kaylee” // Eyebrows: “Harper II HD Brows” (LeLUTKA HD Applier) // Ears: .:E.A.Studio:. – “Akasuna” // Hair: Stealthic – “Paradox”

I wanted to have that post done already but RL again meant to change my plans…

My mom had to be brought to hospital, as she needed a new knee. She was there about a week with surgery and after care. She has a super cute dog, that needed to be taken care of as well. I love my mom more than I can find words for, but if you have a daily schedule with work and what not , it does mean a change if you want to see your mom at the hospital and walk the sweet doggie 2 to 3 times a day. The dog is cute and can be as sweet as a teddy bear, but the same time she is so damn stubborn and not the lightest candle in the chandelier. Long story short… When it was my usual time to log on SL I was so exhausted and tired, that I simply broke down on the couch and fell asleep.

Now mom is back home again and since she has to walk with 2 crutches, she needs a lot of help still with cooking, walking the dog (she not yet is that fast, but she tries) and all the house hold stuff. I never thought that I would be able to do that besides my work and my own daily schedule, but it appears if it has to work, it does *winks*

Head: LeLUTKA – “Sasha 2.5” // Skin: YS&YS – “Kaylee” // Eyebrows: “Harper II HD Brows” (LeLUTKA HD Applier) // Ears: L’Emporio&PL – “Athan” // Hair: Dura – “U100-FAT PACK A”

But now, lets take a look at the new female heads from LeLUTKA. Around Christmas LeLUTKA was so generous to give out one of those heads as a group gift for quite a while, before it turned to a regular sale on the 26th of December 2020. It was the Lilly head. A cute, innocent and sweet head. I never before saw a full boundless, bento head as a group gift and certainly I had to tell everyone to get that head (there was a male one too which as well you can find at the main store now, too – Alain).

Head: LeLUTKA – “Lilly 2.5” // Skin: YS&YS – “Kaylee” // Eyebrows: “Harper II HD Brows” (LeLUTKA HD Applier) // Ears: .:[PUMEC] :. – “Yong Wing” // Hair: [RA] – “Alice Hair” // Necklace: .:E.A.Studio:. – “Damned Heart” // Tattoo: .:Vegas:. – “Sweet Love”

Usually I post the new heads with their original skin and shape first, but this time – since I saw them so many times already in their original look – I wanted to try something different. I still used all their original shapes, but with always the same skin – my everyday skin from YS&YS – and as well always the same makeup and face mods that I usually wear. The reason was to show, how versatile all those heads are and how different they can look even with all the same basics. With their new collections of heads, LeLUTKA again shows their insane, awesome skills for rare beauty and strong faces. LeLUTKA always set on diversity and fashion forward looking faces and with this collection they just once again show exactly that. Certainly all of those heads are boundless and have all the amazing features as always 🙂 . I can tell you if you started to wear one of the new Evolution heads from LeLUTKA and saw all the possibilities, expressions, moods and all the huge HUD offers you… you will never want to wear a different brand – been there done that *giggles* I love my LeLUTKA heads and for me personally there won’t be any better heads!

Head: LeLUTKA – “Zora 2.5” // Skin: YS&YS – “Kaylee” // Eyebrows: “Harper II HD Brows” (LeLUTKA HD Applier) // Ears: .:E.A.Studio:. – “Kanji” // Hair: no.match – “No_Reign” // Necklace: [ abrasive ] – “Romance Necklace”

[- Metallica -]

What a week… don’t you hate that, if things go like 180 degrees the other way as you planned it? I am one of those, who like to at least plan a week ahead, what I do have to do, what I want to do and what I am supposed to do. I usually hardly can focus on things and I keep forgetting things very quickly – my friends know that and thank god they are not too mad with me usually *snickers* – and that is why I usually at least make a rough draft on a piece of paper or my calendar for each week.

Corona and the closing of the schools already messes that up weekly and if something else comes across, it can instantly become a disaster. That is what happened the past week. Blessedly it did all calm down and I finally could manage to get all done.

That gives me the time to post today. I know the Puppet Show gacha isn’t a new release from Moon Amore, but sometimes things need time until the “kiss me” and I know what I want to do with them 😉 I do enjoy the changeover from new releases, things I got because I liked them, but didn’t have the right inspiration and all time favorites. Many tried to tell me a blog always has to be up to date and you only can use things once – I completely disagree with that. My blog is my personal sandbox and I can play the way I like to play 😉 Certainly I will have new releases which I found in stores and on events, or amazing designs I got from my incredible, awesome sponsors, but as well there are times where I just can fool around with things out of my inventory and create pictures just the way I feel in that very moment 😉

Exactly that happened a few days ago with the Puppet Show gacha from Moon Amore and I really enjoyed playing with it as you can see ♥

Numb

TUNES

I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control?
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take
And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)

A new year has begun… 2021! Let’s see what it has for all of us 😉

We are still in the dark season and I am enjoying doing the darker stuff anyway – but you know that already.

Today I am posting something which I planned to put into a magazine but apparently it wasn’t released in December as planned. I thought before it vanishes into the Nirvana, I will add some more pictures and make a blog post out of it 😉

So here we go!

Most of the designs I found at the Saturnalia event (I really hope they will do more events as their team really does amazig work and something different) –  such a super amazing event, directed to the more traditional and naturally side of the Christmas time. To me it was such a relief to see that Christmas isn’t just all shiny gold & red, not just the Santa Claus, Cola Truck, modern, profit-oriented, video game console Christmas. There is people like me who can see the more traditional, mystical and nature-loving Christmas – or even remember what Yule means 😉 For those who do not know, just lemme show, what Wikipedia has to say about it, as it might sound better than me trying to describe it with my limited English words *snickers*

“Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time” or “Yule season”) is a festival historically observed by the Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the original celebrations of Yule to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht.

Later departing from its pagan roots, Yule underwent Christianised reformulation, resulting in the term Christmastide. Some present-day Christmas customs and traditions such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others may have connections to older pagan Yule traditions. Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule are still used in Nordic countries and Estonia to describe Christmas and other festivals occurring during the winter holiday season. Today, Yule is celebrated in Heathenry and other forms of Neopaganism, as well as in LaVeyan Satanism.”

I am still at home while the state is fighting and debating weather to open up stores and schools again or just one of both or none… to me it slowly becomes a joke and the measures get more and more opaque and difficult to comprehend. People get more and more disaffected. And even if I hate to admit that, I start understanding them. They are not against any rules – I am not speaking of all those who deny the existence of Covid or those who spread weird conspiracy theories – the normal mainstream crowd, who just don’t understand all this back and forth politics. How you can say schools can be open with 20-30 people,  inadequate hygiene standards, while bars and restaurants who invested hundreds or thousands of Euros to exactly follow their given rules and as soon as they had everything installed and working, they get closed again while schools and kindergartens are still remain open… anyway, I am not the one to make changes or decisions, but I slowly can understand those how get annoyed and frustrated.

I just will stick at home as much as possible to not risk an infection because of my mother and partner as they are both counted as group at risk members. I will teach and give music lessons online and trying to keep creative in SL and make the best out of it 😉

Happy new year and blessed be!
