Wicca’s Wardrobe – Red against Green?

Lately I was in a very strange mood and I was thinking about something strong… I wanted colors *grins* I took my Ohmai “Contour” body suit as a basic to play with strong colors. First I remembered about an old corset that I bought once from Trilobite, the “Leather V Underbust” in verde. Perfect, that makes a nice waist πŸ˜‰ So now what goes with the green and is as strong…maybe some red? The “Siren” boots from Hoorenbeek are the perfect contra *grins*

With the “Contour” jacket from Ohmai the look was perfect…

For the skin I chose one make the new “Trinity” skin from Redgrave. The fantastic eye makeup was done by White Widow. It is the green version of the new “Wings” face tattoo from Julie Hastings.

Suddenly I met Arisia.. she saw me, yelled at me to do the pictures for the new “Wicca II” set and she told me right to go with this styling… said… done πŸ˜‰

And again I had the great honor to be the model for the newest release of Body Talking – the “Wicca II” set.Β  πŸ™‚

Finally, after few months, she can release the second part of the β€œWicca Merlin Set”. This set of 10 poses is a casual yet high fashion with that fierce touch that I really love!

For both – “Wicca I” and “Wicca II”, Body Talking made different variations to match all outfits and shapes πŸ™‚

Soleil – Bautiful and colorful :)

Not long ago I found a nice gift box in front of my door..I was very excited and took it in opening it, on top there was a nice letter of ColeMarie Soleil, the designer of Soleil.Β  She told me about her new shop opening…I noted that down in my calendar. Then I looked in to the box.. and there were so nice outfits in it… I just pulled out a few and tried them on… I definitely have to show you a few of them πŸ˜‰

The fist one was called “Miss Little Sunshine” and it is a great outfit in amazing colors! (look at the pic above ;)) Yellow and green are the dominant colors for this outfit.

As a wonderful accessorie you have the flower that is attached to the head as a hair jewelry. This dress is really a “Miss Little Sunshine” and honors its own name πŸ˜‰

The second one I want to show you has the sweet name “Lotus D’Anley”…

For sure it does not have to be a ballet dress but it was so tempting to make the pictures with it like this. The short black dress looks very classy and formal. The body is covered by a stunning lace texture in the front and the skirt, a very aerial one caresses your legs with every step you take The cest is decorated with an amazing laced prim part that carries a wonderful white diamond looking gem in the middle πŸ™‚

Soleil…definitely a shop I have to visit soon to see what else they have for me πŸ˜‰

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska (http://www.bouska.net) and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by the prop8 and with the words “NOH8” painted on their cheeks in protest.

Nearly two years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 5,500 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate expanding its reach. The campaign that began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and now Second Life community is also joining. A humble effort to strengthen the voices and fight for the rights of those who are victims of mere prejudice.

Sneak Preview – Mea Culpa Shoes!

Lastly as I was straightening up the laboratory of Tatanka Kaligawa a bit I suddenly stumbled over something… I looked down and..it was a single shoe..I was wondering how this came up here as he usually does not have ladies up in his laboratory but mine it were not too.. and I never saw himself in heels*winks* … I looked closer and saw a Mea Culpa logo on the sole…

My boss made shoes!!! I looked around but no one was there and he told me he would be out for a walk to get his head free for new ideas..and this can take time πŸ˜‰ I searched for the second of that animal print shoes and before I found it I grabbed another pair from under his desk…

A sweet pair of ankle boots with a great texture and amazing accessories…

Again I saw the Mea Culpa logo on the sole and smiled..thinking on how I can smuggle them out of his laboratory…suddenly I found the second one of the animal print one and right beside another pair…

Wow! another pair of ankle boots with a fantastic heel…

Suddenly I heard the key at the door..he was coming back..I grabbed those 3 pairs and run out to the back door..

But as far as I know Tatanka it will not take long till the shoes will be available at the Mea Culpa Mainstore πŸ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Workshift at LeeZu ;)

Today I quarried through my wardrobe as I was getting ready for me LeeZu Modeling shift and searching for an outfit to wear…

I ended up with a neat combination of different things πŸ˜‰

The “Cat Tighs” in black are a nice basic to start with… and after a look out of the window I decided that a jacket will be enough as a top and the “Margo” jacket in black would be the perfect desicion πŸ™‚ A nice break for the black I put on the “O`LaLa Micro” jeans skirts in the ‘used’ color what broke the black very nicely without disturbing. As the days go colder I pulled out the “Miss Mara” scarf in ethno black and wrapped it around my neck.

Last but not least…shoes…suddenly I reminded that I got these prototypes of the new Mea Culpa shoes from Tatanka Kaligawa… “Raptor” they are called and not yet officially released..but as far as I know Tatanka it will not take too long, till they are available at the store so I can use them for my todays outfit πŸ˜‰ A last look into the mirror…approved πŸ˜‰

I took my keys and leftthe home for a nother shift at the LeeZu Mainstore… as nearly everyday ;), so if you like come visit me there and you can take look at the store and I can help if needed πŸ™‚

In the end IΒ  have the great honor to give you a peek on the next pose set of Body Talking. For this post I used the new “Sunny” set, made by Arisia Ashmoot. I had the great pleasure to be again a model for her vendor πŸ˜‰ and she allowed me to use it as a sneak preview for this blog post πŸ™‚
