she fell from the sky like a 747

she’s a bad girl baby, she fell out of heaven

now she is stranded in suburbia

trying to show them her utopia

the homeless don’t care

the rich don’t see

most would not dare

but she is free

Shadows Gathering Around

Enfant Terrible 001

Why was I one of the chosen ones?
Until the fight I could not see
The magic and the strength of my power
It was beyond my wildest dreams

Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around
One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down.

Don’t you die on me
You haven’t made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe
Don’t you die on me
You haven’t made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe

[Lyrics by Within Temptation]

Enfant Terrible 003

Today I was in a weird mood and because of that, i cannot really say something about my styling. It is these days, when you do not feel like you wanna do anything because of various reasons and so you just put on some stuff out of your inventory and experiment around, never being satisfied with something.

Time is your biggest friend if you do that usually… because after some time of fooling around with a lot of items and clothes you might get lucky and get something that just pulls you out of your mood and all of a sudden you like what you see. This is exactly what happened today ๐Ÿ˜‰

I started with a necklace and a head-piece from Enfant Terrible. The “Lotties Darling Necklace” and the “Lotties Eyecatcher” in grey. This two pieces really look very playful and soft with the pearls, gems and ribbons, so I wanted to give it a little bit of contrast with something more harsh and simple. I found a “Harness” as well made by Enfant Terrible. It looked very weird and not really matching and I just kept on searching, but I did not take off the “Harness” again when I tried various clothing layers… I have no clue why I left it on, but when I saw the word catsuit pop up in my inventory it was kinda like a flash light in my head.

The “Shimmer” catsuit from VUI just made shining base for the “Harness”. Now the fantasy went off on me and I added the “Frozen Heart Wings”, wich were a rare gacha item as well made by Enfant Terrible.

The catsuit was lightly broken at the lower arms, cause I still had my Slink mesh hands on so I had to cover it up and went with the “Chloes” bracelets.

Since I anyways now had my hands deep down in my Enfant Terrible folder I just colored my Slink mesh feet black to match the catsuit and put on the “Wrapped Heels”.

You all know how bad layer catsuits look at the neck where they end so I wanted something to smoothen that break from the catsuit to the skin and just put my “Ninja” makup from Nuuna’s on.

I looked at myself and all of a sudden I remembered those awesome scary spiders from GSpot, that they had as gacha items at the Horrorfest 2013.

To bring the red of the spider back I decided to go with the red version of the “Fiamma” hair from Baiastice… one of my long time favourites when I wanna have some wild hair.

So sometimes even a weird mood can be good for something ๐Ÿ˜‰

The other Me…

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 001

I have seen another sky
I have climbed another tree
I have wished another star,
above another star lit sea

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

And I have seen another sunrise,
and another lightning storm
I’m not just the me you see
You see another me was born

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

Somewhere I’m happy
I’m smiled at understood
In another Place I lift my face,
not hide it in a hood

[Lyrics by Jim Sturgess]

LeeZu - Saphire Gown Mal & Wicca 002

First of all I would like to thank Malicia for the time and the base idea for this pictures. She came up with the mirror idea and as well donated her mirror to the shooting ๐Ÿ˜‰

We both wearing the newest gown release of LeeZu. The “Saphire” gown is a fully mesh made gown. It is available in many different colors but for the post we had to choose 2 and so we decided to go with plum for me and black for Malicia. The wonderful shoulder piece is to add single so you can even decide to go with or without it. As well part of the outfit the little hat is. The amazing little hat with the tentacles just adds the little extra elegant and couture touch.

The jewelry I chose to wear is made by Lazuri for the MVW 2014 contest. The “MVW 2014 Eva Luxury” set is an amazing set containing 2 types of earrings, bracelets, rings and a wonderful necklace made of 3 parts wich gives you the option to wear it in 3 different ways.ย As for all the amazing Lazuri jewelry the set is menu driven and you can recolor all parts to kinda customize the set to your likings and needs.

For the poses we needed some mirrored ones. For a long time I asked myself,why some pose makers made these and the only reason I could think of was, that you carry something in your hand that might be on the wrong side for the pose. But today I discovered, that they can be very useful if you want to do pictures like that as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ So i went with poses from *PosESioN* and Morgane Batista.

The shoot and preparing was fun and I hope Mal will be with me for some more posts in the future ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is rare if you meet people, that you go along so well and SecondLife gifted me a wonderful friend not only in SL anymore. Thank you Mal, for believing in me and being such an amazing friend for me in both worlds ๐Ÿ™‚ .

“I’ve done a lot

God knows I’ve tried

To find the truth

I’ve even lied

But all I know

Is down inside

I’m bleeding

And super heroes

Come to feast

To taste the flesh

Not yet deceased

And all I know

Is still the beast

Is feeding.

And crawling on the planets face

Some insects called the human race

Lost in time

And lost in space

And meaning.”

ๅคฉไฝฟ – Blue Angel

Azul+EMO-tions 001

Today I have the great pleasure to show you the winning formal gown ofย  MVW 2014. Miss Anjelica Carling had the right thought as she went to Mami Jewell, owner and designer of Azul, for her formal evening gown for the MVW 2014 contest. The “Anjelica” gown is a wonderful example how well it can work if you combine mesh parts with sculpts or flexible prims. The upper body is mesh made and comes in different sizes so you really can be sure you get one that fits your avatars size. The amazing waving prims add a very aerial touch to the whole look. The black base that is decorated so amazing with those sparkling and shimmering textures, makes a beautiful and sophisticated overall look. The gloves are as well part of the gown. For me gloves – and especially simple ones, wich go up over the elbow – always give the whole styling such an amazing lady like touch.

For the accessories I could not resist again to for my personal likings. For sure I could just have added some wonderful jewelry and a simple updo hairstyle but then… I kinda would not have felt like me ๐Ÿ˜‰

I decided to go with one of the amazing mesh jewelry sets from EMO-tions. The “Kaluha” set contains bracelets, earrings and this wonderful high neck collar made of a lot of circles that are added over each other.

The “Dream” hair as well you will find at the EMO-tions Mainstore. I wanted an elegant but still not too simple and smooth up do for the look and the “Dream” hair exactly had this super light ‘messed’ up look to it, that I had in mind.

For the makeup I wanted to use something very special to get this angelic look even more. Silken Moon had a wonderful gift for the POE6, maybe if you hurry Malicia still has it out! The”Ice Angel” makeup with the light blue shimmer over the forehead and the eyes, the dark lined eyes combined with those little 2 wings just was the right addition to make the whole look to mine ๐Ÿ˜‰

On my Way to a Mad Hatter Party with my new hat from Natzuka

Natzuka Hat +N1CO 001

Lately I talked to Natzuka and after some time we came across her store. She usually sells poses and makeups. She made some outfits in the past as well but she told me as well she found her way into nice and cute accessories now too. She showed me her new “Moka Hat” and I totally fell in love.

The cute purple and pink toned hat really comes with such amazing little details that make it an art piece itself. The little cup, the amazing sweets and flowers… you nearly get the imagination you just have to grab it and taste it ๐Ÿ˜‰ The soft feathers that fall down on your face add a lightly elegant touch to that overall playfully and funky looking hat.

Natzuka Hat +N1CO 003

What else it needs for a cool Mad Hatter party outfit? A cool and crazy look that goes with that amazing “Moka Hat”.

I decided to go with one of the latest releases from N1CO, the “Zoe” pants. Thos freaking cool mesh hotpants, are really something I love. With the cool leather stripes and all the spikes and studds I so screamed Wicca to me and it was exact the right pants to make a cool contrast to the beautiful and playful hat. The pants are fully customizable with a HUD. This HUD lets you change every part of the pants and as well recolor the studds and spikes to what ever you need.

The collar as well comes from N1CO. The “Queens Collar” comes in a golden and copper looking tone with amazing feather attachments. Made in mesh as well it goes amazing with every move and pose you do and it is the perfect accessory for an outstanding look.

The very elegant boots are out of the “Golden Thread” collection. This collection was the latest addition to the Black Label of Miamai. This overknee boots carry an awesome black and white sequins looking texture. The feet itself are kinda black leather looking so it looks like the black and white fabric overlaps the black leather shoe parts.

Ready for the Mad Hatter Party!

Chop Zuey Gown full

Yesterday I got an awesome opportunity from Belle Roussel, owner and designer of Chop Zuey. I was excited all over, when Trinity came to my IMs asking me if would like to pose for one of Belle’s new gown… If I would like… sure I would love to! ๐Ÿ˜‰

LaVieEnRoseAd-Wicca(advertising picture by Belle Roussel)

I saw Trinity in the pink version already and was kinda relieved as I could leave my medicals for my pink allergy at home ๐Ÿ˜‰ A few minutes later Belle send me the black version of the new “La Vie En Rose” gown. I know quite some of Belles dresses but this one just blew me away. The combination of the lighter more sparkly texture and the black satin for the belt and the top really catched my eyes. The belt looks kinda draped round your waist with a huge black ribbon on the left side that carries a filigree lace part falling down to the ground. The top as well looks like wrapped around your upper body in a very stylish way. in the back you again have a huge black satin ribbon that holds the top in place to make sure all is covered what should be ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

The dress is decorated with beautiful gems and jewelry. The front and back of the top carry wonderful brooches and the top end of the gloves, the cuffs, as well is made in a very luxury way carrying all those amazing jewels. Certainly you have a matching jewelry set as well with earrings,upper armlets, bracelets and a wonderful collar. The beautiful tiara as well comes with the “La Vie en Rose” gown and the whole look let you be the princess of an evening ๐Ÿ˜‰

STOP WILDLIFE TRAFFICKING!!!!!

Global seizures of illegal ivory suggest that some 25,000 to 50,000 elephants were slaughtered in 2011 alone to furnish demand in major markets around the world.

The message is simple: stop wildlife trafficking.

And to highlight it, the United States destroyed tons of elephant ivory it has seized over the years — and will pay out $1 million to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Hours before the destruction of the stockpile in Colorado Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry announced the reward money to help dismantle elephant and rhino trafficking syndicates.
It’s the first time the United States has offered such a reward, he said.
The ivory was seized and maintained as evidence until court trials were completed. Once the cases were concluded, some of it was used for training law enforcement officers.
“Over the past 25 years, we have accumulated far more elephant ivory than we can use for these purposes, and decided to destroy this material as a demonstration of our commitment to combating wildlife trafficking,” the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said.
“We want to send a clear message that the United States will not tolerate ivory trafficking and the toll it is taking on elephant populations, particularly in Africa.”
The illegal ivory trade has doubled worldwide since 2007, with the United States the second-largest retail market for illegally acquired ivory. China is the largest market.

An unprecedented demand for ivory today has resulted in the slaughter of elephants throughout their range. It is estimated that 96 elephants were killed in Africa each day during 2012. That translates to four elephants an hour or one elephant every 15 minutes. In scarcely more time than it takes to read this commentary, one more elephant will be dead.

Fueling this devastation are greed for a rare commodity, local poverty and social disorder. Wracked by civil strife, central Africa presently finds itself amidst political chaos that has enabled people to profit from the looting of natural resources, including wildlife. At present rates of decline, forest elephants could go extinct within a decade.

Twenty three years ago, I began studying a population of forest elephants at the Dzanga Bai clearing in the southwest corner of the Central African Republic. Protection for this particular population was probably the best in the entire central Africa region, with regular guard patrols routinely confiscating arms and arresting poachers.
To get to the clearing one must walk a couple of kilometers from the local base camp along huge elephant trails stamped out over hundreds of years. After a half hour’s walk through the forest, the sky lightens as the trees give way to a great clearing. Upon emerging, you may see 40 to 100 elephants at any given time โ€“ part of an estimated regional population of roughly 75,000 animals.
Having no nationality, the elephants arrive from across the larger Sangha Tri-National Protected Area, some traveling hundreds of miles. They become very excited when they recognize family members they haven’t encountered for a long time. Elephants can be seen running across the clearing several hundred meters to greet each other in what are visibly emotional encounters.

In March of this year, the Central African Republic’s government was toppled with the help of heavily armed rebels calling themselves Seleka. Since then, Seleka has wreaked havoc with both local people and the nation’s wildlife. In early April, the rebels infiltrated the Dzanga Bai clearing, gunned down 26 elephants with automatic weapons, hacked out the animals’ tusks, then vanished.

– How many elephants are left on earth?

– Are elephants endangered species?

There are about 600 000 African elephants, and between 30 000 and 50 000 Asian elephants. (Approximately 20% are in captivity) Itยดs difficult to estimate their numbers exactly. The Africans dropped by 50%, from 1.3 millions to 600 000, between 1979 and 1989, because of poaching. About 8 elephants an hour (70 000/year) were poached during this period, until the CITES Ivory ban 1989.

The CITES ((Washington)Convention of International Trade In Endangered Species) regard both species as so threatened, so they are included an appendix 1. (the red list) In the Cites conference 1997, populations in Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia were downlisted to appendix II.ย  This means that limited trade with ivory on quota, to Japan is ok.

If a population is undisturbed, it grows with only 6% a year according to the IUCN (International Union of Conservation of Nature) elephant specialist group.
