Play with Me!

I already told you about the amazing “Electric Sheep” exhibition a few days ago (HERE). Todays picture is another one of 3 I had to create besides the pictures they chose from my Flickr. I wanted to have one, which is more playful and more fun than the “serious” ones I usually take, when it comes to cyber or sci-fi. That doesn’t mean it is no fun for me to do cyber, I really enjoy it but usually I have deep emotions or deeper thoughts to those pictures, as I do have a storyline in mind when I create them. This time it was “just for fun”. The exhibition is still up if you want to jump paver and take a look at it. The gallery is a sweet little one, with so much charm and done with so much love and dedication – you really should see it *winks*

On cold wings, she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing, nightingale
Come on, just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe
When she embraces your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you are all alone
And when she whispers your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you
Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away
Haven’t you seen?
Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

I had the great pleasure to be invited to be part of an exhibition. I was totally surprised when Randy wrote me a message on Flickr and asked me if I would like to exhibit at his amazing, sweet gallery called The 22 Art Space in Bellisseria on the Grenouille sim. The Exhibition is called Electric Sheep. This is one of 3 new pictures I created, which are showed there together with some of my already released ones Randy and Ricco chose from my Flickr. There are 2 amazing other artists showcasing their incredible work. You can read the details HERE and if you would like to take a look yourself – and I would suggest that, as the place really looks amazing – just take the DIRECT TP.

The Scarlett Hotel – Chapter 1 – Another Fine Mess

The Scarlett Hotel – Chapter 1

Another Fine Mess

Griselda sighed heavily as she looked in to the empty bar of the Scarlett Hotel. Another day, another mess to clean up. This was her life now: or rather, her afterlife.
If she had known back in 1922 what a vacation at the Scarlett Hotel would cost her, Griselda would’ve stayed in the stifling heat of the city. She never would have accepted the position as a companion to a maidenly aunt. And never met … him. Her feet shuffle across the hard wood floor of the hotel’s bar as Griselda carries the cleaning supplies deeper into the room. Exhausted, she drops everything to her feet and slumps down on top of a large, wrapped lump lying on the floor. There is nothing she can do until they are moved out of her way. Last night was one hell of a party. He was in rare form. Anton is quite the charmer, especially back in the Summer of 1922. To a young, innocent girl like Griselda, the worldly aristocrat could do no wrong. She fell hopelessly in love with the tall, dark Duke the moment she espied him in the lobby of the Scarlett Hotel. Her heart stopped when her Aunt Matilda introduced them and he kissed her hand. Griselda nearly fainted when he asked her to dine with him that very night.

Their days were filled with long walks in the dense gardens, lazy umbrella-covered boat rides on the lake or picnics beneath the shade of weeping willows. Anton spun mesmerizing stories of his world travels, read poetry from well-worn first editions and kissed her breathless.
Even in the hot July days, Anton always dressed in a fashionable suit, gloves, hat and sunglasses. At first Griselda associated this with his European upbringing, but Anton assured her it was simply sensitivity to the sun. His pale skin, dark hair and hypnotic eyes just made him all that more handsome. Griselda was wined and dined on champagne and elegant cuisine each night and then danced until dawn. Although Griselda was there to work, Aunt Matilda was ecstatic over Anton’s fascination with her niece. If anything, Aunt Matilda seemed almost relieved.
If Griselda hadn’t been so blinded by Anton’s charisma and attention, she would have remembered Aunt Matilda was not a nice person. Griselda was not her aunt’s first paid traveling companion. There was a long list and they never remained passed one trip and were never heard from again. The family said they all ran away since Aunt Matilda was such a vile person.
On a starry night, beneath a full moon, when Anton asked her to spend the rest of her life with him, Griselda thought she died and gone to heaven. Heaven it was not. She managed to croak out a barely audible acceptance before Anton gathered her in his arms and kissed her long and hard. The kiss left her dizzy and flushed as he peppered soft kisses on her face, along her jaw and down her neck.

And then … Unconsciously, Griselda touched the two puncture marks on her neck and heaved another heavy sigh. Damn Aunt Matilda for selling her off to a Vampire for wealth and immortality. Damn Anton for taking an innocent girl’s dreams and turning them into nightmares. And damn herself for thinking such a sophisticated man like Anton could ever love a frumpy girl like Griselda.
Anton did confess after the deed was done that he had not meant to turn her into a creature of the night. He did truly care for her; as much as a Vampire could care for anyone. She was merely payment for a bargain her aunt made with him decades ago.
Now, Griselda was stuck here in this haunted hell of a hotel and relegated to maid status for all eternity. She rose slowly to her feet as the Zombie bellboys entered the deserted hotel bar and dragged out the bodies that were the unwitting ‘party favors’ for Anton’s guests the night before.
My job is to clean up the aftermath. Griselda cursed at the Zombies as their carelessness left a trail of blood in their wake. With a grunt, Griselda dropped a soaking wet mop on the wooden floor and began the backbreaking job of scrubbing it clean.
Another fine mess.

Sweet & Soft…

One week to go, then I finally have holidays – just one more week… *dances around*

With all the new jobs and Covid-Numbers are growing again like mad, my real life went upside down and my time for Second Life became really limited. I hope I can be online more constant again, after the holidays now that the jobs got some “routine” and are not anymore so time intense.

I had a little girly-goth moment when I did the pictures for todays post… I have to admit, I really enjoy that sweet and soft Gaia head from LeLUTKA sometimes *winks*

It is nice to have a little selections of different heads and play different characters – that gives me a lot more freedom for different styles and looks without letting Wicca loose her character.

These days it seems I need some kind of complete freedom or looks, styles and picture ideas. Maybe that is the reason why I do experiment a lot with a few of the other amazing LeLUTKA heads and as well with some of the BeSpoke heads – yes, I do have done a few with those, too, that I will post soon. I do not know if that makes sense, but over the years I developed Wicca into a character with her own twists and edges. I mean in the end it is me and I am the one operating her, but she is just once side of the real person behind the screen. Most of us are in Second Life to spend our free time here with fun, excitement, creativity and freedom to do what ever we want as long as we stay legal and law abiding. It does feel wrong to put Wicca into a ballgown ir have her sweet and girly looking, especially because of her trademarks. The silver eyes, being browless, having all those scars she got over the past years and all those special body mods – I just donut want to loose that on her anymore. I was modeling in Second Life for so long and changed my avatar to all kind of looks, but Liam tired of that and I like Wicca how she looks now, so why I should change her, just because someone doesn’t like what she is? It is my avatar, my personal vision. So only me has the right to make or suggest changes on her. I never really thought about that and it never felt as important to me than the past few month – maybe because RL put so much stress and instability on me, I wanted something that only me has the right to choose? But yes that is one of my personal proposals for 2022 and on going 😉

For today I would like to drag your attention to a few amazing designs made by my favorite creators. The amazing dress you can see on the pictures, was made by AsteroidBox. The “Zoya” dress is an amazing, short dress with a sweet little harness and waist corset on top. The HUD is the same as always for AsteroidBox and you get so many amazing choices to combine colors and patterns with the fatpack.

The “No_Books” hair is a cute, loose style from no.match and I guess I used the “Unicorn” color HUD with all the different pastel colors *laughs* , but for that special look it was just perfect. The “Farseer” glasses became to one of my favorite ones. I do love the squared glass and the ornamented temples a lot, they make them look very unique.

The amazing makeup and eyeshadow were made by a wonderful, creative Lady. She runs her own brand “Rubedo” for a few month now and you can find her all over the grid on the best events. What I love is her versatility and how she adapts her designs to various event themes without loosing her trademark. She works a lot with light and pastel colors – even if I sometimes would desire something deep saturated or darker shades – most of them I can make work with Wicca’s face, too.

I really enjoyed my sweet soft moment, but it will stay an exception – I do love Wicca the most and I do have no plans to change her look anytime soon 😉

7 Days until Christmas!

Insatiable Hunger

Hunger. Hunger is my passion. Hunger is my existence. Now, hunger is my curse. Hunger is my punishment. Eternal hunger. Once, food was plentiful. I would gorge myself on the sweet, succulent meat. Their fear made the flavor all that more tantalizing. I did not eat out of need or survival. I ate because I could, because it was there. My gluttony drove my hunger and hunger drove my gluttony.
I was insatiable. My hunger was uncontrollable. I devoured them all. Large and small. Young and old. So delectable, I could not stop.
They bred so often and so quickly, I never considered the tasty morsels would be no more. Millions upon millions upon millions. So much food. There is nothing left now. Gone. All gone. The seemingly endless supply of food – gone.
The bones are picked clean and left as a taunting reminder of what once was and will never be again. Bones scattered everywhere I look. Snap and crack as I walk over them. Dry. Brittle. Tasteless.
No more food. There will be no more. I ate it all.
Hunger is my punishment. Hunger is my curse.

The Song of Despair

“A Thousand Words” is a collaborative Second Life photography project dedicated to expression through creative imagery. For our inaugural exhibition, Second Life residents created photographs inspired by renowned poet Pablo Neruda’s “Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.”

Today I have something very special… I recently was invited to be part of an amazing exhibition. Trouble approached me, asking me if I would kike to be part of his newest vision. He told me about Pablo Neruda and his new project “A Thousand Words”and  sent me a link to Pablo Neruda’s”20 Love Poems and a Song of Despair” – I had to choose one. It took me a few hours to decide which one would be “mine” as they are all amazing and so I really had to think which one would be the most inspiring for myself.

You can watch all the amazing artwork HERE but the exhibition inworld is so much more impressive as it is held in a perfect designed place where you even can hear the poems read to you

Visit the exhibition from November 1st until November 21st this year – You really should not miss it!

Location: A Thousand Words

And here is my choice and above the picture I did, inspired by the amazing “The Song of Despair

The memory of you emerges from the night around me.
The river mingles its stubborn lament with the sea.
Deserted like the wharves at dawn.
It is the hour of departure, oh deserted one!
Cold flower heads are raining over my heart.
Oh pit of debris, fierce cave of the shipwrecked.
In you the wars and the flights accumulated.
From you the wings of the song birds rose.
You swallowed everything, like distance.
Like the sea, like time. In you everything sank!
It was the happy hour of the assault and the kiss.
The hour of the spell that blazed like a lighthouse.
Pilot’s dread, fury of blind driver,
turbulent drunkenness of love, in you everything sank!
In the childhood of mist my soul, winged and wounded.
Lost discoverer, in you everything sank!
You girdled sorrow, you clung to desire,
sadness stunned you, in you everything sank!
I made the wall of shadow draw back,
beyond desire and act, I walked on.
Oh flesh, my own flesh, woman whom I loved and lost,
I summon you in the moist hour, I raise my song to you.
Like a jar you housed the infinite tenderness,
and the infinite oblivion shattered you like a jar.
There was the black solitude of the islands,
and there, woman of love, your arms took me in.
There was thirst and hunger, and you were the fruit.
There were grief and ruins, and you were the miracle.
Ah woman, I do not know how you could contain me
in the earth of your soul, in the cross of your arms!
How terrible and brief was my desire of you!
How difficult and drunken, how tensed and avid.
Cemetery of kisses, there is still fire in your tombs,
still the fruited boughs burn, pecked at by birds.
Oh the bitten mouth, oh the kissed limbs,
oh the hungering teeth, oh the entwined bodies.
Oh the mad coupling of hope and force
in which we merged and despaired.
And the tenderness, light as water and as flour.
And the word scarcely begun on the lips.
This was my destiny and in it was my voyage of my longing,
and in it my longing fell, in you everything sank!
Oh pit of debris, everything fell into you,
what sorrow did you not express, in what sorrow are you
not drowned!
From billow to billow you still called and sang.
Standing like a sailor in the prow of a vessel.
You still flowered in songs, you still broke the currents.
Oh pit of debris, open and bitter well.
Pale blind diver, luckless slinger,
lost discoverer, in you everything sank!
It is the hour of departure, the hard cold hour
which the night fastens to all the timetables.
The rustling belt of the sea girdles the shore.
Cold stars heave up, black birds migrate.
Deserted like the wharves at dawn.
Only the tremulous shadow twists in my hands.
Oh farther than everything. Oh farther than everything.
It is the hour of departure. Oh abandoned one!
[- Pablo Neruda -]

Get some Rest @ Salvage Station

In 2 days we will have a new event on the grid run by Second Life Syndicate called “Salvage Station”! It is right down my alley as it os a post apocalyptic themed event with all kind of genres in it! Even if it takes 2 more days for the event to open, I have the greet pleasure to show you some of the goodies, that you will be able to get there.

Lets start with that amazing top from AsteroidBox. The “Survivor Shirt” fits Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Flat, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female, Belleza Jake, Legacy Male bodies. Just be aware, that the chest slides on the female options have been disable for the effect of rigid armor. Other than that, there are 8 color options available with each purchase including 8 options for the armor vest, 6 options for the shoulder and other straps, 5 metal options, 5 options for the metal arm plate and bloody and clean options for the bandage. The fatpack includes all color / pattern options for the sweater. The bandage can be worn as a separate accessory too.

When I saw the vendor picture of the cool “Torn Leg Trousers” from Hotdog, I really had a huge smile in my face, when I realized, that the leg prosthetic he is wearing is the “Alyx Leg”, the collaboration we did with DRD. I loved the concept about the “one leg ripped off” style a lot and so I had to wear them for my first picture for that event – not to mention they worked so well with one of the newest releases from L’Emporio&PL, the “Zohar” boots. You will find them at the actual round of Man Cave. They are rigged for all the popular bodies (male and female).

The cool and lightly messy/loosely  looking hair (I love messy looking hair) was made by no.match and you can find it in many different colors at the actual round of Tres Chic.

I have a feeling that this event will be an amazing experience as they have planned so much more than just a sales event. They have the “Wastelands” as special guess for the vent and I heard about amazing activities and even interactive fun which will happen on the event sim. You should NOT miss that amazing event 😉
