OMG… I made it into cinphul’s blogger team!!! For those who know me you might imagine what honor that was for me. I love cinphul and not only blogged them once before. I am a fan for years 🙂 Their dark and special view of “life” are right down my alley – I love the unusual and if it goes dark, creepy and sexy I am all for it!

Today for my first official cinphul post I want to highlight a few of their amazing designs. First of all the amazing “STQ [armor + boots set”, an amazing set of  3 parts to wear – rigged boots for Maitreya, Kupra/Lups, Legacy (male & female), Signature Alice/Gianni/Geralt, Belleza Freya/Jake and Slink Original/Hourglass/Male and 2 unrigged parts for the shoulders and the waist, which you can resize to your needs. As well in the pack you will find a 5 Color Texture HUD.

I truly love the shape and textures a lot, the first imagination I had, was the Xenomorph Alien made by H.R. Giger. I adore the Giger art, so it was no wonder that I fell in love with that amazing set from cinphul, which could easily fit into one of the Alien movies as a costume. Certainly I had to do a picture in that style as an homage to H.R. Giger as well as a tribute to cinphul 😉

For the picture I used more than just that amazing armor set from cinphul… that cool “temperance mask” as well was made by cinphul  – I got it last year on the Cyberfair – I just could not pass it by. That incredible details in the mesh and on the textures caught my heart in the moment I saw it. For the most part of the my scene I used a cinphul creation as well. It is a newer release called “azrexok” and I found it at one of the weekend sales recently and certainly had to get it. It contains two different pieces which you can resize or recolor with the HUD to red, black or silver. Since it is a new release you can find it now at the main store as well, just at the full price again 😉

cinphul has so much more to showcase and I am working on their newest release for the ACCESS Cyberfair at the moment – you will be amazed how incredible cool cinphul interprets the cyber genre as well!

There is more than one Demon here…

TUNES

You must have taken the wrong turn
You’ve ended up in hell
Hear me, temptress of the night,
There is more than one demon here
I see temples I yearn to defile,
‘Cause our horns hide divinity

And I think that the smell of your soft skin,
Is no less than the last legal drug
So here’s my seditious and bold whim:
Let’s drag the moon and make him watch
This grip will bloom into a bruise
These scars are your tattoos

And it’s a sad, sad feeling
But I can’t tell the truth to anyone

From a dear friend of mine I got that stunning “Kuroi Namida” dress – I really fell in love with that, thank you so much Shena. Now those of you who know me will ask if I am alright as I usually never like dresses too much, but this dress is a very special one. It has a wonderful corset and a short skirt which is covered by a long non symmetric second skirt part which goes down on the outside of the left leg. You have the choice of a full black version, or a black dress with colored accents like the one I am wearing today in red, at the actual round of NEO Japan. There I found that super-cool tattoo from Vegas Tattoo called “Akkorokamui” as well. I will have another post showcasing the neck part more in one of my nest posts, but it matched so amazing with the open cleavage part of the dress and the detail you can have on your face with the tattoo just finished the style in such a cool way ;). You get 3 different version of the tattoo if u decide to purchase it, where you have the choice of how much of the tattoo you would like to wear.

The holidays I desired so much seem to slowly do their thing as I am full of new ideas again and already think about my next post while I write this one, plus I found some more cool stuff on the NEO Japan event as well, which I want to showcase before the event is over *giggles*

Necrotize is live – One of the most cool events recently, at least for me *winks*. Second Life Syndicate (SLS) again outdid themselves with a super unique event. I love their personal vision by bringing that special cyber-horror event around the Halloween season.

I will have a bunch of posts probably and again some with Redclaw – I already forced him to get some male designs, even if he keeps complaining I would fill up his inventory just for my picture obsession and blogging*giggles*

But lets take a look at all those amazing designs now. My outfit certainty is one of the new releases at Necrotize coming from .{PSYCHO:Byts}. A wonderful ‘lingerie’ matching the cyber-horror theme in perfection. It is available in 8 different colors and for my todays post I chose to go with the vibrant red one. The outfit contains top and panty and as well connected to the panty are the super cool spikes attached to the hips.

The extraordinary boots are located at Necrotize as well and made by cinphul. I saw they made matching arms as well which I need to get later, too! The boots are really creepy and the toes look like predator claws, while the boots itself have a super awesome decor as well with little wholes and spooky elements.

Speaking of spooky the kick ass makeup and lipstick made by Suicidal Unborn, the decor I used from Dreamcatcher and the scary bone collar from ERSCH you can find as well at Necrotize as well. The event is really special and if you are into dark fantasy it is a definitely must go for you to discover all the amazing releases and gifts the designers put together!

Another new release, but at the Kinky event comes from Eclipse Art Studio. Shina Shan – owner and designer of E.A.Studio – made some cute little horns right in time for Halloween (not that I just would wear them for Halloween though :p ). The “Magnus Horns” come with a huge HUD so you can customize the skin and as well the horns itself easily to your needs.

To complete the look in a perfect way I used the new “Decadence HD Eyes”, which Madame Noir released at the Darkness Event. On the HUD you will find 13 different colors. What really caught my eyes is, that there is not a real iris or black middle of the eye, you just see something at the bottom that reminds me on vampire teeth – makes the whole look even more freaky, creepy and dark!

Tomorrow is Halloween… damn it again came so fast! I wish there would be one or 2 weeks more for me, to get every post done I planned for that. But then.. who says I cannot just go on with dark and scary things in the darker half of the year *winks*

It is incredible how many amazing terrifying designs jump on the grid at the moment! I know why I keep saying, the actual season is my personal Christmas season *grins wickedly*

At the moment I am watching TWD again and when I saw the new mask from DRD, it instantly reminded me about the “‘Whisperers”. With the flesh and metal parts it is a perfect combination of a scary, horrifying mask. The details are amazing crisp, but that we already know from DRD *winks*

For the top I wanted something rotten, ripped too and CerberusXing had the perfect design for that. Matching the basic apocalyptic scenery, I wanted some cool and special weapons and strapped, used shorts to still let the amazing stompers from DRD shine.

The collar is one of our latest releases for the Hallow Manor event and made the perfect finish for my look today, but I still would love to drag your attention to the closeup below… The incredible cool eyes are made by Madame Noir for the Salon 52 event. Together with the messy eye-shadow and lipstick from CAZIMI they completely kicked my imagination about what this woman could have been gone through, before she ran from that huge fire explosion. Certainly such a strong and powerful woman cannot be without a tattoo and it was no question what ink master she chose when she got it – Vegas Tattoo!

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl

Challenge Today: Combine Sweet Shoes with a Bow and Scary Gloves with Teeth & Tongue!

Lately I do have a lot of fun to give myself little ‘challenges’ for my styles and trying to complete the task. I thought about a way, how I can re invent my view on my blogging pictures. Certainly we do have our ‘duties’ too with deadlines and blogging rules, but I do not wanna see it just as a job. I realized if I just do pictures without any special thoughts behind them they start looking the same. I do not want to have the same look over and over again and those little challenges as well remind me what I do have in my inventory. After 10 years of blogging, you easily can loose track of what you have, but with little challenges and the fact that you force yourself to not just buy new accessories, but use what you already got, it really gets an interesting aspect again. Plus it has another great advantage, you stumble over things you would never wear again, as they are outdated or used too often already and you can just delete those and make room for new stuff 😉
Actually todays challenge was a fun one, as I really could go crazy again. Do you know that, if you got something because you liked  it and then you have no clue what you can do with it? That was what happened to me with the cool “Koronay Veil” from cinphul. I saw it and thought I need to have that and then I was sitting and staring at it a little frustrated, as nothing wanted to come to my mind besides that I love it. Sometimes you have to put things aside until they talk to you 😉 This happened today while I was trying to combine those awesome, sweet “Desir Stilettos” from Poison Rouge and the kick ass, uber cool “Voracity Gloves” from Cubic Cherry. I do have an addiction to scary, dark stuffs – and that felt like it could go directly into that direction.
As you can see.. it did :p

She’s a Maniac

Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She has danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between will and what will be

She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before
She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before

[Michael Sembello]

When I saw the “She’s a Maniac” gacha set from Salt & Pepper, I immediately had the pictures of one of my favourite 80s movie in mind… Flashdance!

For those who are my age.. I am sure you remember that little beauty training her ass off, sweating like she would have stood in the rain to get hired by that ballet company :p

Yes, I admit, I had to watch the movie right there again while styling the new gacha set of Salt & Pepper and I highly enjoyed it – even if I saw it like a hundred times before – Thank you Salt!

I wanted to make my own interpretation of that main character of the movie, or how I would have seen the look in my very own vision. Since I am an 80s addicted, I had to have it in black and white with some hints of red on the lips and the fingernails, the hat as well was a must 😉

First I experimented with a ballet room with lots of mirrors and what not, but then I felt that something more simple would do a better job, to have the focus on the actual look and as well the fantastic poses from Poseidon.

So I just set up a white studio with a ballet barre from Cinphul and the “BoomBox” by [Since 1975]. I rarely saw such amazing energetic poses, than the ones of Poseidon. And when I saw he had  ballet and dances moves…

Again I experienced that not only great clothing, a cool set and some good photography make a picture.. no… poses do their huge part to it as well. It is always a combination of everything in my opinion.

And it is a lot more fun to work with energetic poses… if it fits the theme than with just static photo poses. Sometimes energetic, movement poses might not work on the first view, but if you change the angle, you can have super cool pictures, or if you just use a crop 😉

To give the whole look some more personal twist, I added the “Grim” eyepatch from [sys]. I love fancy headpieces and face deco and this little piece of art is just another master piece of [sys]. All those leather bands, chains and little decorations make this eyepatch to so much more than “just” an eyepatch 😉

The “Charming” collar from Happy Undead just matched so nicely in colors, style and as well in the positioning – it nearly looked as it was made for the “She’s a maniac” gacha set!

Maybe you now have the same desire as I had to watch ‘Flashdance’ again and I would like at least to link the video of that song 😉
