News and Spectacular Christmas Special at Mea Culpa!!!

Wicca Siren full

Today I am very happy to showcase one of the latest Mea Culpa releases. The “Call of the Sirene” outfit again is a little piece of art of Tatanka Kaligawa, owner and designer of Mea Culpa.

The “Call of the Sirene” outfit was made for the last Fashion Teller and it’s inspiration were the historical Sirens.

In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous and devious creatures, portrayed as femmes fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. Roman poets placed them on some small islands called Sirenum scopuli. In some later, rationalized traditions, the literal geography of the “flowery” island of Anthemoessa, or Anthemusa, is fixed: sometimes on Cape Pelorum and at others in the islands known as the Sirenuse, near Paestum, or in Capreae. All such locations were surrounded by cliffs and rocks.

When the Sirens were given a name of their own they were considered the daughters of the river god Achelous, fathered upon Terpsichore, Melpomene, Sterope, or Chthon. Although they lured mariners, for the Greeks the Sirens in their “meadow starred with flowers” were not sea deities. Roman writers linked the Sirens more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys. Sirens are found in many Greek stories, particularly in Homer’s Odyssey.

Their number is variously reported as between two and five. In the Odyssey, Homer says nothing of their origin or names, but gives the number of the Sirens as two. Later writers mention both their names and number: some state that there were three, Peisinoe, Aglaope, and Thelxiepeia or Parthenope, Ligeia, and Leucosia; Eustathius states that they were two, Aglaopheme and Thelxiepeia. Their individual names are variously rendered in the later sources as Thelxiepeia/Thelxiope/Thelxinoe, Molpe, Aglaophonos/Aglaope/Aglaopheme, Pisinoe/PeisinoΓ«/Peisithoe, Parthenope, Ligeia, Leucosia, Raidne, and Teles.

The Sirens of Greek mythology are often confused with the Gorgons portrayed in later folklore as half women–half birds, (birds sing beautiful, enchanting songs, like the sirens are portrayed to do); the fact that in Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Romanian and Portuguese the word for mermaid is respectively Sirena, SirΓ¨ne, Sirena, Syrena, SirenΔƒ and Sereia, and that in biology the Sirenia comprise an order of fully aquatic mammals that includes the dugong and manatee, add to the visual confusion, so that Sirens are even represented as mermaids. However, “the sirens, though they sing to mariners, are not sea-maidens,” Jane Ellen Harrison has cautioned; “they dwell on an island in a flowery meadow.

Tatanka Kaligawa made his own vision of a modern and fashionable Siren come true with his latest creation;)

Wicca’s Wardrobe: A Tribute to Rita Hayworth

Wicca - Rita Hayworth Full 003

TUNES (Put the Blame on Mame – Rita Hayworth)

Rita Hayworth was an american actress and dancer. Her greatest success she had in the 40’s, where her fans gave her the nick “The Love Goddess”. With the movie “Gilda“, she acted side by side with Glenn Ford. This movie made Rita and Glenn one of the most well-known love couples of the movie history and the role of the dancer Gilda who drove so many guys nuts is always affiliated with Rita Hayworth. A very famous scene from that movie as well is the song “Blame on Mame” that I linked above where Rita Hayworth takes off her long black glove πŸ™‚

The styling itself was not even planned like this as I only searched for an appropriate outfit for the Miss Virtual World 2013 finale. I combined parts of PurpleMoon’s “Falbala” dress with skirt of the “Paulinha” gown from Azul. The jewelry as well is a mix of 2 different sets of Finesmith, the “Falbala” bracelet and gown decor paired with the “Radiance” earrings and necklace. The coat, that I carry in my left hand is part of Tres Beau‘s “Diana” outfit. I was not wearing it at the finale of MVW 2013 but for the picture I wanted to, it was an amazing detail I did not wanna miss πŸ˜‰ I just recolored the white to a golden tone to match the jewelry.

In the end it was Malicia Python, who brought me on the idea of Rita Hayworth as we talked and I was thinking of a background and scenery for snapping the styling.

One of the most popular pictures of Rita Hayworth is the one you can see above. I kinda loved the challenge to make my version of this wonderful classy and still sexy image and so I tried to make a pose that comes close to the one on the picture. At the end the cigarette could not be missing and I found a wonderful sculpted one fromΒ Meli Imako, that I just had to texture by myself πŸ™‚ In the end I really liked the idea of my own vision of this little “Rita Hayworth goes SL” and I hope you enjoy it as well πŸ˜‰

Mother Earth

TUNES

Again it was the music that inspired me for a styling. Within Temptation is a band that I used to listen to a lot in the past. As I was sorting all my CD’s the last days I found the album again where the song “Mother Earth” was from and just listed to it running in circles :p

The gown is one of the Ashraya Project contributions of Azul. “Tyra” in a special color only for this event made a great basic for the look that was stuck in my mind. The gown has a lot of sheer parts that still cover up all what it has to πŸ˜‰ The jewelry is as well an Ashraya contribution by Finesmith. “Krinin’s Poem” comes with headpiece, necklace and ring. The gemstones are color changable πŸ™‚

For the face tattoo I used the “Wild Flowers” from White Widow, as well available at the Ashraya Project sim. The hair I found at a huge hair store called Discord Designs. I loved it so much as it is made with the new mesh technique that goes with the avatar so well. The color was matching so well that imagination of all that earth tones that I just loved it πŸ™‚ I hope you had fun listening the tunes and maybe can feel what I was going for πŸ˜‰

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss USA 2012 by Azul & Alienbear

So it seems today I will have my last Miss Virtual World 2012 gown πŸ™‚ The competition is already 3 month over now but the stunning and beautiful gown of Miss VW USA 2012, Miss Michaela Benazzi, made by Mami Jewell, owner and designer of Azul, could not be missed in my MVW 2012 gown series πŸ™‚

The “Michaela” gown like you can see it on the picture is the original version , that Miss Michaela Benazzi was wearing on the MVW 2012 runway. Mami Jewell created more colors and a fully cream-white version for all those who do not like the white-blue-red combination πŸ™‚ The wonderful top is made with such lovely details, like lights, shadows and folds that you nearly can feel the sating that is wrapped round your upper body. The flowers are a wonderful decoration that hold the blue and red flexible lines that fall down in an amazing way. The delicate light white fabric that makes the skirt falls down in a dreamy flexible way to the ground. The skirt a well is ornamented at the bottom end and again shows how much love for the detail Mami Jewell puts in her designs. The “Michaela” gown you can purchase in many different colors at the Azul Mainstore.

The wonderful elegant jewelry was made my Alienbear Gupte, genius designer of Alienbear. She totally picked up the white-blue-red theme combines with the roses and created a wonderful filigree and sophisticated set, called “Michaela”. The incredible crown is made of 3 parts that you just add one after another. The necklace is made of 2 parts and the earrings and bracelet only take one attachment spot. Alienbear again showed that she is one of the most skilled jewelry designers in SL if it comes to ideas, designs and texturing. Her jewelry always makes every person wearing it at least a princess for one evening πŸ™‚ So make your way to the Alienbear Mainstore and see what is new beside the “Michaela” set.
