TUNES

Dreams, sensations you prove
Are taken from nature
You find those emotions are true in your mind
Fight against the kingdom of fear
Sooner or later they’ll try to convince you are wrong
But I’m sure,
We’re just
Crawling angels and demons disguised
The truth you don’t know so try to be sure
When your angels and demons arise
Face the truth, God is not love!
Feel as fluid as life,
Love is a rainbow
As much as it seems to be real
It’s all in your mind

Run away from all your whoredom and wave

And there were sales again… and some new releases as well certainly!

When I got that super cute outfit from +Psycho Barbie+ – the “Mei” outfit – which comes in 3 parts (top, corset and sleeves), I immediately had a “Lolita” impression. Maybe it was the ruffles, or because it looked so cute, I have no idea. But I wanted to do a sweet look with some edges with it. Ok I have to admit, maybe “sweet” isn’t the right word, lets go with playful *giggles*

The awesome No_Cradle hairstyle from no.match, which you can find at the current round of eBENTO, just matched perfectly. It does have 2 different style options, for my post I just used the one with the hair behind the back. You have another option, where a huge wisp falls over the left side of your face, but that didn’t work too well with the cool chain veil from Six Feet Under 😉

I have to say I do enjoy my new “duty” to make pictures and blogs with the loot of my sale shopping and I will try to go on with them between the posts for my amazing sponsors – certainly you will find them featured as well in most of my looks anyway… credits as always down below 🙂

[- David, Allegiant, 2016 -]

Germany seems to be weird sometimes, especially our government. Now that we have our Covid numbers going down constantly, even with the new virus variations… they can’t wait until the numbers are as low as the experts ask for – no we have to break open schools and kindergartens as fast as we can. I mea i see the problems, do not get me wrong, but what does it help if we are back to sky high numbers in the next 3 weeks and then have to lock down everything again?!? Can we not just wait like 2 weeks more until the numbers are low enough before we plan things like that? Especially as it was clear, that the numbers dropped really fast when the schools finally were closed again? Would it not make sense to put some effort into the internet and into getting the needed hardware to the kids who are not having any still? The online platform for Bavarian schools (Mebis) looks and acts like they would have been made in the Stone Age some when and instead of working on it it feels like they counted on the fact that the summer will kill the virus and it is gone after that. They had oe year now to fix things and besides the fact they allowed Microsoft Teams, nothing really has changed – and that wasn’t the work of our government *facepalms* It seems more important to hold on exams and schedules instead of taking care of our kids and their health. We all know now, that the kids do not get symptoms but they can carry the virus around secretly and infect all their family. I just don’t understand all those rules and requirements anymore. WE can have the kids in school, shoulder on shoulder, but we cannot have theaters and cinemas open who definitely have way better hygiene management for infection control, than any school has – at our school we do not even have warm water for the kids to wash their hands as requested. But sure, lets open the schools again for 3 or 4 weeks to again close down the whole country as the new virus variations push the numbers up again – If they keep acting like that and with the not working vaccine concept (we simply do not have enough yet and some do not have a 100% protection – not to mention there is not even one yet for kids under 16 years, which is allowed officially) we will go back and forth until summer 2022 🙁

Anyways, lets take a look on todays pictures and designs 😉

Again I am in a cyberpunk mood – no wonder we just had the Mainframe event! I am super sorry for posting this so late but lately my RL is completely upside down. My mom got a new knee, and I still have to take care of her, cook, clean and walk her dog at least 2 times a day while I try to shuffle my work around as much as I can. Sometimes I am just dead in the evening when I am done with all my day work and I instantly fall asleep on the couch even if I made me some coffee to stay awake for some SL work.

But I still love making pictures and I try my best to not come too much behind with my blogging schedule 😉

Like I said sadly the Mainframe event is already over, but many of the releases I am wearing were made for that and now should have found their ways to the designers main stores I suppose.

“Miss Nothing”

TUNES

“Miss Nothing”

I’m Miss Autonomy, Miss Nowhere
I’m at the bottom of me
Miss Androgyny, Miss Don’t-Care-What-I’ve-Done-To-Me
I am misused, I don’t wanna do
Be not your slave
Misguided, high-minded
I’m missin’ the train
And I don’t know where I’ve been
And I don’t know what I’m into
And I don’t know what I’ve done to me
And as I watch you disappear into the ground
My one mistake was that I never let you down
So I’ll waste my time and I’ll burn my mind
I’m Miss Nothing, I’m Miss Everything


I’m Miss Fortune, Miss So-Soon
Like a bottle of pain
Miss Matter, you had her
Now she’s goin’ away
I’m misused, miss-cunt-strued
I don’t need to be saved
Miss-slighted, high-minded
I’m stuck in the rain
And I don’t know where I am
And I don’t know what I’m into
And I don’t know what I’ve done to me

And as I watch you disappear into the ground
My one mistake was that I couldn’t let you down
So I’ll waste my time and I’ll burn my mind
I’m Miss Nothing, I’m Miss Everything
I’m Miss Everything
And as I watch you disappear into my head
Well, there’s a man who’s tellin’ me I might be dead
So I’ll waste my time and I’ll burn my mind
So I’ll waste my time and I’ll burn my mind
I’m Miss Nothing, I’m Miss Everything

“Christmas time is buzzing in my Skull…”

TUNES

You know, I think this Christmas thing
It’s not as tricky as it seems
And why should they have all the fun?
It should belong to anyone

Not anyone, in fact, but me
Why, I could make a Christmas tree
And there’s no reason I can find
I couldn’t handle Christmas time

I bet I could improve it too
And that’s exactly what I’ll do
Hee,hee,hee
Eureka! I’ve got it!

[- Jack Skellington -]

Who says that freaks do not like Christmas… maybe no the typical, ribbon, red/green/white/gold one with candy sticks all over… but still.. Christmas :p What brought me to that idea for this post was the “Cozy Winter Collection”, which DRD released at FaMESHed and an older group gift – as well made by DRD – the awesome “DIY Christmas Tree” . I found it hilarious, when I saw that blank tree, a huge black sack with all the fir needles in it and three bottles of glue beside it – I simply love Jaimy’s sense of humor. With some parts of the “The Last Christmas Shop” as decoration and some more past group gifts, I tried to decorate my alternative Christmas room 🙂

Certainly I had to have the matching look to my scenery and I could not pass the cool glasses with that scary eyes by Madame Noir… such a cool accessory, that really creates a different vibe *grins* With my love for heavy boots I as well could not leave the “Ravage Boots” on the shelf at L’Emporio&PL. They are so hell detailed! If you take a closer look you can see every stud, every lace, and the cute hole in the sole – made me think of my New Rocks in real love and I love them to death 🙂 What as well caught my eyes were the awesome “Damned Claws” from L’Emporio&PL. They are made for hand and feet, but since the shoes cover my feet this time, I am wearing only the nail set. When I put on the HUD I was really positively surprised… beside different colors you as well can hide every single claw separate.

I have a few more scary Christmas ideas in mind and I am looking forward how they will turn out 😉 For now… Happy Holidays everyone!

Hide from the World Outside…

As I look out of my bedroom window
I see the chaos that’s calling me
So the wind blows wherever it will go
It’s all too much for me

[- Pretty Reckless -]

Lockdown, lockdown light, back to normal, all open , all closed… This pandemic really becomes a huge mess as no one dares to make decisions anymore. I am not one of those denying that the pandemic exists, I am not one of those who tries to cheat and avoid masks and I see the danger of that virus very clear – I lost people to damn Covid already. What makes me crazy is the way how our government handles certain things. Why conferences, which debate about school rules and changes, have to be on a Sunday (and being alive already on Monday – the next day), when parents need to be informed and need plans to take care of their children on Monday? Why kids may play soccer on the school yard but in the afternoon the clubs for free time activities (as well soccer) are closed? Why kids must sit shoulder on shoulder in school with a mask, while they are not allowed to play with more than one certain friend in the afternoons? More and more doctors speak up saying that it is the kids that transport the virus without having any symptoms and our minister of education still preaches “Kindergartens and schools have to stay open!” I can see that there is a need of having a place where kids can go, if their parents have systemically important jobs or if the only have one parent that takes care of them – but why keeping schools open like mad while it is more and more clear that a huge part of the spreading happens through the classes where 26 and more people share one room the whole morning from 8am to 2 pm? This lockdown “light” crap destroys more than it helps as the number still go up and more and more small stores, theaters, cinemas, bands, musicians and bars/restaurants cannot even plan when it will have an end. A harsh 3 or 4 weeks lockdown might have been better and we know since September (school started over here by then) that we are running into that problem, because number started to go up when school started after summer and autumn came… it just starts feeling idiotic and despotic at the moment. It only feels like reaction to whats happening, but not anymore like intelligent action.

I as well could vomit when I see people going out on the streets wearing no masks and denying the pandemic would exist… did we not have enough death, not enough suffering and loosing people we loved? They claim they go out on the street for their rights – what about the right of  those who want to be protected, those who wear masks and follow given rules to get this pandemic stemmed? While they shout on the streets, people who care and try to protect themselves as much as they can, are forced to pass that crowd of people without masks. Recently they even started to use kids for their idiotic speeches making them say they would feel like Sophie Scholl or Anne Frank – I was so shocked when I heard that and my first thought was, what people would think who had to go through the cruel time of that times… for me an inexcusable affront to all those people!

All of that went trhough my mind when I was setting up the “Neclected Bedroom” from DRD. The idea of a messy bedroom, which you can hide from the world and read some books that even help with that – dive in a fantasy world and just forget all that madness out there and if you are lucky you have a little company from your kitty or the pet you chose for your life 😉 The kick ass cool boots I recently found at L’Emporio and could not pass them without getting my pair :p .

I hope you are well and afe and I wish you a wonderful pre Christmas time, even if it will be in a smaller circle than usual – it still can be nice and cozy ♥

Virtual Insanity?

“… And now that things are changing for the worse
See, its a crazy world we’re living in
And I just can’t see that half of us immersed in sin
Is all we have to give these –

Future’s made of virtual insanity now
Always seem to, be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh, now there is no sound – for we all live underground

And I’m thinking what a mess we’re in
Hard to know where to begin…”

[- Jamiroquai -]

When you think about your life as a path, it never seems to be a straight and smooth one. You have junctions, where you have to decide which way to go. You will face bumpy and rocky sections. You might even dead-end streets, which first looked completely right and all of a sudden you realize it won’t let you go further than a certain point. You might find ways, that feel as they would go to nowhere – some really do some just take a long walk until you can see where they lead to. Some might request major changes and decisions and some just need next to nothing to decide the change.

I am at one of those junctions, maybe even one of the dead-end ones in RL and SL. While it is a little more complicated in RL, in SL I just need to get my mind straight and think about what I really want for my free time activity called Second Life. I – and I only can talk about myself and my personal feelings – do not need a Second Life that dictates my schedule, gives me pressure time wise, forces me to decide on things I do not feel I want to, or to follow something I am not 100% behind anymore. Certainly I feel responsible about schedules and appointments, I always tried to be accurate, on time and well prepared what ever it was, but sometimes the thought of “Do I really need that?” sneaked into my mind and I was more careful the next time I committed to something. But what about things that you thought they would totally suit you and you would enjoy them – what you maybe even did for a while – and then they change? Maybe the fun fades or they take direction to something completely different than what you expected or pictured? I have a hard time lettings things go I had fun with for along time, especially if friendship is involved. It is always harder – at least for me – to leave something, if you have built a friendship with some of the people. Sometimes friendships break as certain people will take your decisions personally, even if they are not meant to be like that. On the other hand if you go on with it, you might risk the friendship as well as you are constantly unhappy and even if you try to hide it, it most likely will be felt by other people, especially if it is friends. Often it is a tightrope walking and you have to think very carefully how you decide.

That sometimes can lead to a “Virtual Insanity”, which inspired me for todays post and pictures.

The damn cool straight jacket was made by CerberusXing for the Warehouse Sales event. It comes in a clean and bloody version and due the BoM Alpha layer you can wear it with different mesh bodies. The cute, pierced horns as well were made by CerberusXing for the Anthem event. My mega awesome piercing I found at Kinky made my .:E.A.Studio:. It is a huge gacha with many different parts, while the piercing is one of the rares you will find a lot of cool earrings as well. To snap my pictures with that kinda crazy, insane look, what could be better than the Rosewood Hills Asylum made by DRD. It is a huge gacha with 49 collectables items and they make in total over 150 separate decorative items!  The gacha set was parted into 2 machines, one focusing more on the medical interior and the other on the office interior. I just can say both totally worth to collect if you want an overall awesome Asylum! If you want a short and scary tour through the Rosewood Hills Asylum you can as well take a look HERE, where Eowyn and Jaimy made a short video to introduce it – watch at your own risk *grins wickedly* If you are even more brave you can take a taxi to Rosewood Hills (SURL below in credits) and look for yourself if you can survive the virtual insanity *winks*

The basic design for todays pictures was the amazing face tattoo from .:E.A.Studio:. called “TaTToo Corvus Make-Up”. It is one of the recent releases at their main store. I loved how the wings hugged the undereyeline. You get the choice between black and white and as well 2 different opacities for each – 40% and 60%. All of them are BoM layers and so they will work wit every head that supports BoM. For my LeLUTKA heads it works just perfectly. *winks*. The layers are modifiable, so you even could turn the white one into every color you like. The head I am using today, is the new boundless update for Erin.For the outfit I chose the amazing “Rocket Captain” from {PSYCHO:Byts}. I love the details on the body as well as on the hat. You get different colored for the body and the metals of the whole outfit. I really had fun decorating my set as soon as the idea of a military space mechanic came to my mind. The “Wreck Hideout” from 22769 was perfect for that scenery! First I thought about a motorbike for my mechanic, but then I found that amazing, futuristic space bike from STUN in my inventory, which even came with those cool poses!

So many new releases I just had to do another post today!

I would like to highlight some really exciting news. Lets start with the extraordinary eyes and glasses of my more casual looking styling – at least for me that would be casual :p

The glasses and the eyes are made by Madame Noir. Known for her incredible and extraordinary eye designs she started  – for quite some time now – to make amazing fierce accessories. For example the “Aniquilation Glasses” – on the first view you just see those awesome shaped glasses with the huge side parts and if you take a closer look you see those nasty little claws that point right into your eye. Paired with the new “Spectro” eyes, it gives you a totally wicked look.

Since we are already looking at the closeup picture – LeLUTKA has again updated their new Evolution line heads! Now they are all boundless… what does that mean… they now have unrestricted bones! Yu can even customize your heads more than ever and if you absolutely don’t like it you still get the option with the ‘dated’ heads as  well included in the new update pack. The great HUD git an update too and was polished even more. Omega was removed for skin and lashes layers, a second HD eyeshadow has been added, we got a new HD brow layer and a tear line has been added. While we already had so many awesome moods for our heads, we now even get more – 64 moods in total! The face expressions got reworked too and even there we got more now \o/.

What I totally love is, that you now do not have to wear all piercings single anymore. Now we have 3 different sets: Ears, lip and nose and an extra HUD. With that HUD you can hide/show the piercings way easier and detailed.

The super cute and to the same time mega cool shoes, are made by DRD. The “Girlie Stompers” You get a rigged and un-rigged version so you can make the best fit even with pants, which usually require a wider shape. With the color HUD you get different options and colors for laces, bow, shoe base, shoe tip and the platforms. Since  am a DRD addicted, I could not resits to use the cool “Gypsy Claws” as my hand accessories and all the amazing decoration of my set you can see, is made by DRD too (I credited them all detailed below).  To finish my look I used one of the lates releases from Vegas Tattoo – the “Dark Body and Soul” tatoo available at the current round of UBER.

I could not resist to put that little, cute kitty from JIAN into my pictures, as I loved the little distraction to the whole scenery, which that little boy brought to the set 😉

I hope I did not scare yo with all the little pictures and details, but I felt they needed to be shown for the new 2.5 update of LeLUTKA, which I immensely enjoy 😉
