“All we’ve ever known.”

“A haze of neon illuminates the network of streets far below, and the sound of the traffic is quieter this high up. Even so, I can just make out the fine-tuned engines of several ModBikes in the distance –electrons circling Descada’s corrupted nucleus.
It’s an impressive view for a dorm, one of the best I’ve seen. It’s really no small wonder why most kids don’t discuss anything existing beyond the city. You could almost believe the buildings and lights here go on forever. This is our sanctuary. All we’ve ever known.”

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS Cyberfair // June 2021

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS Cyberfair // June 1st – 25th

“Form follows function” is an old design addage, but even in the age of cyber augmentation, it’s still relevant. Enter the Cypher Pants, engineered by the brightest minds at Wicca’s Originals. These pants are more than just coverings for your legs, they provide thermal insulation to protect from heat and cold. They grant your hips and thighs with next-generation support, alleviating some of the strain on them, allowing you to run longer with less effort. And of course, there is the very practical aspect of the slash-resistant materials used, giving the wearer a sense of security against either laceration or tearing, from falls on the asphalt, to thorny bushes or even knives. All of this in a sleek, aesthetically pleasing package. Get your Cypher Pants today, and feel the difference. Comes with 10 colors palettes and metal options, for Maitreya, Legacy, and Gianni bodies — Also comes in a ‘Rune edition’, for wear with the Rune Top!

The Yuri Arms by Wicca’s Originals are more than meets the eye. At a glance, they are sleek sleeves, covering from wrist to mid-upper arm, but they are so much more. Using a series of induction pads, the Yuri Arms read micro-electic pulses going on just underneath the dermal layer, in the musculature, and send signals to expand or contract along channels in the nanocarbon material to supplement the body’s natural strength. The effects of this range from subtle support to being a force multiplier, improving the precision of detailed work that requires a steady hand, or amplifying the raw strength behind a throw or a punch. This patented technology provides the best augmentation you can get for upper body control, short of invasive surgeries. Comes in 10 color options, with 10 metals, for Maitreya, Legacy, and Gianni bodies — Also comes in a ‘Rune Edition’ variant for use with the Rune Top.

“Sometimes I’m feeling like an Alien…”

TUNES

Where did I come from? Where do I go?
I’m so far away from home
What am I going for? How can I know
What I’m fighting for?

[- Dennis Lloyd -]

“Sometimes I’m feeling like an Alien…” true words, which apply to my SL as well as to my RL!

It is amazing how SL and RL can be different sometimes and so alike on the other hand. I always was more of an outsider, as I never was able to walk with the mainstream… not SL and nor RL either. I always had my own thoughts and they never fit into a “normal” frame of view it seems. I always avoided the “either black or white” decisions and tried to find my own way through many moments and situations.

Maybe it is the little rebel inside of me that always questions, if there is only black and white and why I would have to decide. What if the truth is somewhere between black and white… what about all those shades of gray – there are so many!

Plus I always had a problem with the phrase “it is, what it is” or “because we always did it like that” – I mean if I did it myself and then come to the conclusion it is – fine! But what, if I do it and come to a different opinion? I would have missed that if I just went with what I was told. There were situations, which were not nice and maybe I should have skipped them by just believing what I was told, but on the other hand I would have not experienced other wonderful things either. I have no clue if I make any sense but I do prefer to make my own experiences and go my own ways even of they might need more time or be a little more gravelly.

So much for that and now lets take a closer look on todays pictures. I visited the CyberPunk Fair from Flair for Events again and found some more neat goodies 😉

I am a cyberpunk addicted, that isn’t a secret anymore and so events like the CyberPunk Fair are like heaven for me. As you can see in the credits below, I picked up quite some new designs there like for example that wonderful mask made by PSYCHO:Byts. The mask comes with a HUD that holds amazing possibilities for the front textures a well as for many different color options – definitely a must have for me! The cool bodysuit as well you will find at the event, made by AURORA. You can change the lights and textures via a HUD too and so it will match to all kind of styles and colors. What caught my attention was the cool neck/head tattoo from Tristan Flinders, which comes with the option of materials as well.

Certainly I had to pair all the new goodies with some of my all time favorites like the cool body tattoo from Nefekalum Tattoos, which as well comes with amazing materials and in many different colors.

And in the end I fell totally in love with that little “Alien Monkey” from Black Cat Creations. You will find that on the CyberPunk Fair, but as well at the main store. This little, awesome pet comes in different colors (HUD), if you decide for the fatpack and has a wonderful pose for each of them including a mirrored version – so 5 poses plus their mirrors… 10 in total!

I still have the feeling that wasn’t my last post for the CyberPunk Fair as I already spied “a few” more things that caught my attention *giggles*

“When you understand the Nature of a Thing, you know what it’s capable of.”

You can’t keep denying what you are, man. You think the humans will ever accept a half-breed like you? They can’t. They’re afraid of you. And they should be. You’re an animal, you’re a fuckin’ maniac!

Yay, Cyber/Punk by Flair for Events again opened its doors. It always feels like Christmas if a Cyberpunk themed event opens its gates with all the amazing goodies you can find there! Most likely it won’t be the only post about that awesome event, but I do have to start somewhere *giggles*

The cool pants and boots are a fabulous combo from AsteroidBox for this event. They come together in one pack and even for the single colors you have 16 colors/patterns to choose from. Each color already includes a huge HUD with many details to customize boots, knee pads, belts, leg strap, plus the neon details. For the fatpack you even can mix and match the styling of the leg sleeves individually and you can decide if you want to wear the pants, boots or hip circles all together or just parts of it. For today’s post i just skipped the neon circles at the hips, but I am sure they will come up in one of my next posts *winks* The “Nella Pants & Boots” are rigged for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female.

Another awesome release are the huge but (yes I found out while I was shooting) gentle giants. They are part of an awesome posing set from Black Cats Creations, which you as well will find at the Cyber/Punk event. You can choose between 5 amazing detailed giants with poses for each of them and you even can recolor the monster if you go for the fatpack.

There are so many exciting releases and designs available at the Cyber/Punk event, you should bring time and a huge wallet to not miss out any of them *winks*

Maybe see you there?

Wicca’s Originals has released their latest optimal augment, the Kingsford Eyepatch. Bringing form and function together, this curious looking facial decoration serves to do more than just cover the eye with a stylish design. The eyepatch is outfitted with analog parts, including an optical zoom on the lens which can be adjusted from the dial on the side of the face, and a shielded concave lens designed to be able to maximize the capture of light and allow the wearer to see in near-dark settings. Being all analog, the Kingsford design requires no batteries or electronics, and is easy to service. The squeamish may find the way it is studded to the face uncomfortable, but nobody got anywhere by letting such hang-ups hold them back. This unrigged eyepatch can be worn on the left or right eye, on any head, and comes in 5 colors for the leather and 5 colors for the metallic pieces.

Thank you Vivien and Aramis De’Lancoure for your time and patience for that picture, as well as the awesome pose ♥

The Dash Mask, by Wicca’s Originals. This is the new gold standard for augmented reality. The mono-eye display allows the wearer to perceive a blend of virtual and real world experiences, or to read and respond to messages and browse matrix subnets while feigning interest in a boring meeting. It comes with a control panel for initial calibration and configuration, but after that it is controlled by reading neural impulses by induction using our new Neuro-Link technology. For aural experience, we’ve also made matching earphones – the Dash Earphones. Unrigged to allow a fit on any both, for any gender. The Dash Mask and the Dash Earphones come with 10 stylish color palette options.
