“And I wish that this World would embrace you…”

TUNES

Sweet innocent child with your open eyes
You’ve seen us for who we really are
And I know that there’ll be tomorrow
So that hope can have it’s glory day
And I wish that this world would embrace you
From magic stars and mystery
My open heart

Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
Until we see it through the eyes of a child

You say I’m different, I say you are right.
You say you’re in good mood, which means you’re sad
I’m insatiable, I get never enough.
grab into your wounds, and stir up the blaze.

Dinner is served, it’s a pleasure to me.
I’m licking your lips, because I like your taste.
Oh am I embarrassing you? Tell me, are you afraid of me?
Who is normal here and who is insane?

The decision has been made, the charge inside me is ticking…
Nothing will be like before, fortunately I’m crazy!

I’m on probation, okay I am not.
Your ugly brother, a hit in the face.
You say I’m menacing you, I’m out of my mind.
You think I understand you? I’m tantalizing you!

I’m totally clueless, I don’t remember anything.
I plead on acquittal, I am not in my right mind .
You say I’m embarrassing you, Tell me, are you afraid of me?
What is normal here, and who is… and who is insane?

The decision has been made, the charge inside me is ticking…
Nothing will be like before, fortunately I’m crazy!

It is one of my favorite songs and since it is in German, I tried a little translation hoping I didn’t loose the meaning too much 😉

Did you ever had the desire to not wearing complicated mesh styles which never perfectly match for mix and match styles, but still wanted to look mega cool and dressed? I might have the solution for you – The “Sluagh” full-body tattoo from Nefekalum Tattoos! You will not just get the amazing cut out bodysuit tattoo, you even will get amazing materials that give you a serious high fashion, avantgarde look. You get the illusion of shining from the inside out – that was my first imagination I got when Sir Skye showed me his newest creation. This fantastic design will come to the Chronicles & Legends Event the 10th of April 2021.

The cool bracelets, which have similar cut outs are made by .:E.A.Studio:. for the current round of the NEO Japan event, where as well you will find the amazing decoration from CerberusXing, which I used as a background.

The ultra awesome mask was made by Pendulum. I got it quite a while ago and always waited for the perfect idea to use it, so I could do it the justice it earns. I admire the designs from Pendulum for quite a while now. Each design is a unique masterpiece of creativity.

Happy Easter!

“Leaving lepidoptera… Please, don’t touch the display,
Little boy, aha cute! Moving to the next aisle we have
Arachnida, the spiders, our… Finest collection.
This friendly little devil is the heptothilidi,
Unfortunately harmless. Next to him, the nasty licosa
Raptoria, his tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of
The skin (laugh). And here, my prize, the Black
Widow. Isn’t she lovely?… And so deadly. Her kiss is
Fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake.
You see her venom is highly neurotoxic, which is to say
That it attacks the central nervous system causing
Intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in
Breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions
And, finally… Death. You know what I think I love the
Most about her is her inborn need to dominate,
Possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation
Of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the
Species she kills and eats him…(laugh) oh, she is
Delicious… And I hope he was! Such power and dignity
… Unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a
Slice of personal philosophy, I feel that man has ruled
This world as a stumbling dimented child-king long
Enough! And as his empire crumbles, my precious Black
Widow
shall rise as his most fitting successor!”

[- Johnny and V, in unison – Cyberpunk 2077 -]

Finally Friday – Hooray!

Today I would love to show you some of the mega, amazing designs released at Mainframe and Midnight Order!

Lets start with Mainframe, a cyberpunk, sci-fi orientated event, which had it’s debut last year already. With it’s great success it opened its doors again now in January!

What caught my eyes immediately, was one of the amazing release from Lanevo. This huge pack piece called “Maneater Machine” is just perfect for any cyborg, sci-fi or future orientated look, which steps away from basic human looks only. You can imagine an alien having technical tentacles, or a cyborg with super cool, multiple arms added on its back – it definitely does set a statement!

The “Cyber Pulse” gloves from L’Emporio&PL could even hold the control panel for that cool back piece at the lower arm where you can see all those cables and technical parts. The gloves are super detailed and certainly they are bento enabled. If you style for a sci-fi look you cannot miss Graves. Jackie is one of the best leather and latex designers I know and with her fantastic ideas and skills she brings us only the best for years now. The bodysuit is BoM and with that the perfect base for any cyber look! Another incredible store is Butanik83. I discovered them last year on the first Mainframe events and since then I always have an eye on their releases. Their designs are incredibly detailed and textured – very realistic!

What I will use for one of my next posts a well, as the pictures today do not really give a good showcase for it is the kick ass waist part – a metal spine replacement part, with a rough and basic look to it gives an amazing vibe for any android, gynoid or cyber avatar.

The boots with the awesome spikes at the front come from {PSYCHO:Byts} and were released at the Midnight Order event. With the cool spikes at the front and the tight straps at the thigh, they make a perfect addition to any kind of cool and smart looks.

Could you lend me an eye, please?

Today I have some perfect new for the actual season from Madame Noir combined with Hotdog and CerberberusXing. In the dark fantasy mood you can’t live without those brands – ok I never can live without them, but in these days they are even more desired by so many *winks*

So lets take a closer look… The incredible glasses with the long antennae or tentacles and the cool chains the connect both sides are a total must have for all those who love the scary things. To make it even more creepy,I added those cool eyeballs with the inbuilt arm/hand animation. They reminded me of a movie that  love a lot called Pan’s Labyrinth – I know the creature there had the eyeballs in the palms of the hand. To hold them properly and in style,  I felt I need some sharp claws certainly from CerberusXing. Since I am a tattoo addicted, I could not skip that awesome tattoo from Vegas which you can find at their main store.

As many of you know I love to play with opposites… and when I saw the new lipstick from CAZIMI, that originally was made to be sweet, sugarcoated lips, I could not resist to merge them into my look :p

The closer Halloween comes, the more stores release items for this special season… the more I lapse into that mood *grins wickedly*. For me that could go on through the whole year!

Wicca’s Originals @ Pretty // September 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ Pretty // September 7th – 30th

The Valorie Bodychain is a unique and finely crafted addition to your fetishwear collection. Wicca’s Originals has carefully crafted this series of links to best accentuate the feminine form. From the collar, a length of chain follows the sternum and series of chain ‘ribs’ is draped over the breasts, emphasizing their curvature while giving absolutely free access to your lover. The matching panty set hugging over each hip technically provides covering, but only the barest amount, while a series of chains clings to the lower abdomen. The overall effect is not to provide clothing, but to decorate and help the natural beauty of the female form shine even more. Adornment which directs the eyes and arouses hungers. The “panty plate can be taken off via the HUD, too *winks* Comes in 10 different colors, for the Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass, and Freya bodies.

Wicca’s Originals @ WCF // September 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ WCF // September 1st – 30th)

Wicca’s Originals has put together a new lingerie set, the Nicolette outfit, which is unlike anything else in your closet. Sporting a more science-fantasy styling, this titillating outfit sets itself apart. The main body of it is a bustier-style corset, supporting the underside of the breasts and sporting a series of chains across the torso. The ‘top’ is completed with a pair of nipple caps with chains connecting them, constantly providing stimulation so they are primed with sensitivity if and when it’s finally removed. The delicate chain links provide one’s lover a place to grasp and lead you around with a delicious mix of pain and pleasure. The thong style panties dip suggestively low, offering a teasing glimpse of lower abdomen underneath the corset. Thong and neck chain can be removed via HUD, trim and body color can be changed between 10 different colors, for Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass, and Freya bodies.

Fragilestrong with Salt & Pepper!

Salt & Pepper 02final

Today I have something very special and as well a personal favour for you.

Lately I got an incredible rope harness from Salt & Pepper. I did not know that amazing designer personally before and I was super surprised, that we share the same country in RL*grins*

It is always kinda funny, if you talk to people in English and after a longer while you discover, that you could have spoken your mother tongue :p

Salt & Pepper 10final

When I met that wonderful lady, I immediately had an amazing and comfortable feeling talking to her and the more we talked, the more I felt, I would like to do that sweet lady a favour. Just because she was so nice and kind to me 😉

She released an amazing Rope & Flowers set on a very new event called Objets d’Amour, which was hosted by the owners or the ROMP event. The first round, where this artpiece was released, was going on from the 4th or February until the 15th.

Sadly, RL did not let me do the pictures in time of the event :/

But since I wanted to do something very special, I simply could not rush the pics through.

But I took a peek at the main store of Salt & Pepper and I saw that she has the gacha machine up there now with that amazing items 😉

Salt & Pepper 08final

I know that many people have prejudices about ropes on a nearly nude body and many times it just falls towards porn or gets judged like that. But as in so many cases, it is always in the eye of the beholder or about personal taste I guess.

To me ropes can be very artistic and as well, tasteful and artistic lingerie or nude shots can be very impressing and amazing.

And exactly that, I wanted to transport on my todays pictures 😉

Salt & Pepper 01final

First I put on the harness and all the parts that came with it and looked at it very close. It comes with HUDs for all pieces, where you can change the colors of the ropes, metals and roses. The set contains even more parts than the ones I used but for the purpose and look I was going for they did not wanna really fit in to my view this time 😉

I decided to go with the harness, the gag and cuffs for ankles and wrists. All parts are scripted for roleplay as well.

The more I looked on the different pieces, the more I found all those incredible details like the little chains that lead for the ropes to the metals or the amazing detailed texture of the rope itself. That already proves the high quality of the Salt & Pepper designs. The whole set contains 5 standard sizes for the classic avatars, Slink Physique/Hourglass and a Maitreya Lara fitting version.

Salt & Pepper 03final

When I was staring at my pixels wearing the awesome parts of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, imaginations ran through my head about what to do with it.

First I tried the black ropes and everything I tried to style kinda was sexy and seductive… but I wanted more. The more I tried, the more an idea got stuck in my mind about opposites. I wanted something artistic, something sexy, something classy.. something fragile and something strong and powerful.

First I thought that will be too many in one but the more I played with stuff the more I was confident about it can work.

Salt & Pepper 06final

I got stuck on the white ropes with the rose golden metals and the darker red roses. To give an opposite to the strong and kinky look of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, I wanted some white lingerie – not too playful with lots of ruffles and lace. More something classy, simple but still modern and different looking AND for the Slink Physique mesh body. After spending more than an hour on Marketplace, I made my way into the Starwalkers2010 chat and asked – kinda depressed – about ideas for something like that.

I got some very good advises but one girl hit the nail on the head with her suggestion… Thank you Voshie Paine!!!

She lead my way to Chocolate Atelier (c.A.). I TPed over to the store and already was very impressed about the designs and I was curious what Marketplace would give me for that brand since sometimes gacha items or older products are not available in world anymore but still there.

Salt & Pepper 09final

BINGO!

I found the “Thea Bra & Panties” ensemble. The amazing layer set can be worn on many different mesh bodies and mesh body parts with the provided appliers and it has the layer versions inside as well.

The simple looking light, smooth fabric has some very fascinating cutouts on both parts, that make an amazing front and back view 😉

Salt & Pepper 07final

While I was searching through my inventory for any kind of scenery or decoration ideas, I stumbled over something that I got a long time ago and never really used it. It comes out of a time long before mesh even was talked about :p .

The “Draped” set from Glitterati was released back in 2011 and comes with a sheer satin looking fabric prop and 10 different poses. I did not use all of them but for a few I wanted to give it a try.

With all the new windlight, the old sculpties did not cooperate too well and I had to rework them a little later in PS. Since I am not a trained graphic artist in RL… go figure… that took a while, but it was well worth every minute for me and I learned new things 😉

I had so much fun doing those pictures and post. I met a wonderful and kind person, I learned about 2  – for me new – brands I definitely will put on my “to shop and watch out for” list so overall it was a wonderful experience and try to play with lingerie, ropes and opposites 🙂

Wicca’s Weird Wardrobe: Fear of the dark

Dark Angel 001

I am a girl who walks alone
And when I’m walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

Dark Angel 002

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no one’s there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you’re sure there’s
Someone there

When I’m walking a dark road
I am a girl who walks alone

Dark Angel 003

When I was styling the today’s look, I was listening to one of my favourite bands called Van Canto. I will attach the song that I liked most during my styling session at the end of this post 😉 With this music on my ears I could not resist to just let it flow and see what comes out 😉

I strted with the amazing “Emi Corset” from N1CO. The corset with the spiked bra are mesh made and coming in different sizes, I am sure you will find one to match your shape ;). As so often for N1CO, the “Emi Corset” comes with a HUD that gives you a hell of a lot of possibilities to customize the colors and textures. You can color the spikes, the corset straps and lines, the buckles and as well the corset itself with different patterns.

The pants i took from the “Tribute to Kattaca” outfit from [AD] Creations. The full outfit is amazing as well and I will make sure to show case it as soon as possible as well, but the pants just were the right addition for my today’s look. Since the pants are quite ‘open’ I added the “Glitter Pants” from LeeZu to cover my private parts 😉 .

The amazing “Saxa” mesh boots from SeVered GarDeN, caught my attention. The boots are mesh made but with 2 parts. The leg part and the foot part so you even could add another pair of shoes if you would like to.

Now i would like you to take a closer look at the bracelets and the necklace. Not too long ago I was asked if I would like to blog a – for me –  new brand. I never heard about Enfant Terrible before and I am really surprised how that could happen. Enfant Terrible is the store for all those people who wanna be a little extra ordinary. LesEnfant Terrible, owner and designer of Enfant Terrible, has the special taste and feeling for the non usual and out of the box designing. All she creates has her special twist and tweak what makes all of her creations so unique. The “Chloes” set wich comes with bracelet and collier shows her amazing skills when it comes to texturing and creating. The set is HUD driven and you can exchange the gems and totally match any styling you working on. The filigree “Chloe” collier shows with how much love and time LesEnfant Terrible designs her creations.

Many of you know how addicted I am to little details and accessories. So it was clear for a kinda demon style I cannot just leave my face blank and casual with just some makeup :p .

The amazing “Scara” version of the “Morbida” from SIlken Moon made the right basic for an amazing dark and demon looking face. With the wonderful drawn face parts the “Morbida Scara” totally meets my likings. In the package as well you will find another version wich is just grey. I rarely saw a grey skin with so much details and great made body parts. The “Blackness Face Chain” from Soedara I carry around for quite some time and I never saw it fit to something until today 😉 . The chains look very realistic and with the little red gem at the forehead it was the perfect addition. The cool and scary “Damage – Spiked Eye 001” was part of the Halloween collection fo Finesmith for this year. I just loved the look and the 2 little spiders that seem to crawl up the chain that falls down the cheek.

The hair was a new release of EMO-tions for the last weekend. The “Skip a Beat” hair was made as a tribute to Skip Staheli and it can be worn unisex and in different styles. For the fatpack the hair can be color changed with the new HUD that Mirja Mills started to use for all of her latest releases.
