You can’t shoot me!

“You see that city over there? That’s where I’m supposed to be. Not down here with the dogs, and the garbage, and the fucking last month’s newspapers blowing back and forth. I’ve had it with them, I’ve had it with you, I’ve had it with all this – I want room service! I want the club sandwich, I want the cold Mexican beer, I want a $10,000-a-night hooker! I want my shirts laundered, like they do… at the Imperial Hotel… in Tokyo.”

Wicca’s Originals @ NEO Japan // March 26th – April 23rd

The lights outside Pyper’s window were bright, almost too bright, They glared throughout the city, illuminated every building as far as the eye could see. Yet beyond, there was only darkness.

Such is the way of space. Light and dark battling for dominance. A station floating among the stars as a refuge: a beacon for intergalactic travelers from the cold darkness of space. To Pyper, it was simply home.

Pyper held the notable distinction of being the first human born on this station, thanks to the fact that her parents were among the first to build this new colony. As word spread, other species arrived, as well as human explorers and settlers.

That was over 50 years ago, based on the Earth calender and the only home Pyper ever knew. When she came into adulthood, Pyper could have boarded a ship and traveled throughout known space or explored beyond. She was well educated, thanks to her parents and highly skilled in engineering, physics and biochemistry. Instead, Pyper chose to remain and follow in the family business. Her parents worked hard all their lives, sometimes at great risk to their own safety and sanity, to see this dream realized. A neutral platform where races across the galaxy could meet and work together.

Dressed in a synthetic, leather-like jumpsuit that stored body heat and reduced the need for room-by-room heating units, Pyper finished dressing as she continued to stare out the windows. While all her wardrobe was standard for the residents, Pyper did indulge in one luxury – her boots.

While they were constructed by the same materials as her clothing, Pyper had them custom made to include platformed wedge to the sole that not only elevated her height, but gave her a feeling of personal power. Her mother once referred to them as ‘ass kicking heels’. Whatever they were called back on Earth, Pyper wore them with more than a bit of attitude.

Seeing time grew short, Pyper gathered the last of her things and left her quarters. The tram system platform that transported residents everywhere in the city was across from her building.

Within minutes Pyper arrived at work. She had taken over for her father after his death at 173 Earth years. Why is it the good die so young?

The doors opened automatically as Pyper approached so she never had to break her stride. Confident, brilliant, fierce, fair-minded – all adjectives used to describe Pyper Inshan when she assumed her father’s duties.

“Good morning, Ambassador Inshan,” Pyper’s aide greeted her with respectful bow, “The Kherillion delegation awaits you in the Great Hall.“

Mainframe opened its doors again and you will find a huge load of amazing cyber designs there. My absolute favorite find is the new “Kay Body” from Misaki. I saw that amazing bodies before but what really got me is that she now released one of her incredible bodies with the option to wear regular clothing on it. In this case every Legacy rigged clothing – I hope she will come up with a Maitreya compatible version as well, since I am not a huge friend of Legacy and so I usually deleted all Legacy sizes. Now I at least can wear designs made for Legacy only by using this amazing cyber body like I gave it a try with the Legacy size of the super cool “Rebella Bodysuit” (it does come for Maitreya too certainly) 😉 The fact that you now can combine that amazing cyber body with LeLutka really made my day. I love the amazing cable shaped neck part and as well how the transition of the cyber parts to the LeLUTKA head works. Misaki provides an alpha that perfectly matches its needs.

What I enjoyed immensely too are the new released makeups from Shiny Stuffs that you can find at the Mainframe event. She has so many options for mix and match colors and different styles in her pack – I really had a hard time to choose which ones I wanted to use for my first post! What else I am wearing you ca find as usual down below at the credits – remember everything that is colored you can click and get a direct  SURL to go there. I know this won’t be my last post about Mainframe as there are so many amazing news that I already have an idea for more  pictures 😉

A Place to Hide

The darkness was broken only by the torch I carried, casting eerie shadows in the cave that is my last hope. A hiding place no one can ever find. My boots shuffle along the uneven and rocky floor of the cavern hidden deep underground a long lost and forgotten city.
No one has been here in hundreds of years and I pray no one will ever return. It’s the only place where I can keep it safe. If anyone gets their hands on the contents of the box in my backpack, all is lost.
It’s been discovered before, many times, because I was careless in my diligence and lax in my guardianship. And each instance was a cataclysmic disaster. I cannot allow it happen again.
It can’t be destroyed – God knows I have tried. No one else can bare the burden – the responsibility is mine and mine alone. Hiding it from the world was my last resort.
The slightest sound roars in my ears like a freight train barreling down on me. The drip, drip, drip of water. The crackling of the meager flame guiding my way. A tiny pebble kicked by the toe of my boot.
I’m close. I can sense I am near the edge of the endless abyss that is my only salvation. Trembling with fear, excitement, anticipation – I don’t know my own emotions anymore. I just know the end is near.
With the torch wedged into a crack on the ground, I drop to my knees and let the backpack slide down beside me. The box tumbles out as if it has a life of its own. It DOES have a life of its own.

I clutch at the key hanging around my neck. It is calling to me to unlock the box. I need to fight its siren call, but I have to see it once last time. The lid opens slowly and there it lies – the bane of my existence. My heart.
Its steady beat is hypnotic as it seduces me with talk of love and happiness. But those things don’t exist. They are only illusions and when reality rears its ugly head, the pain is unbearable.
I slammed the lid closed and the snap of the lock sends a cold chill through my veins. Before it has a chance to change my mind, I shove the box over the edge and into the dark abyss, a bottomless pit where nothing can return.
For long moments I wait, expecting the hear the box crash upon the rocks below. There is no sound. There is just … nothing; Torch in hand I rise and walk away, free of my burden at last. Free from the pain of feelings.
No one can hurt me again. Especially my own heart.

As lasers shoot at him from different directions, Sark drops to the floor with a shoulder roll. Finding temporary safety behind a stack of crates, Sark takes a moment to check the energy level on his laser rifle and mutters a silent curse. Ten percent reserves.

After a quick mental count, he knows there are two combatants near the hanger door and one hiding behind a steel pole near the only other exit. Three targets and only enough energy left to take out one, if he is lucky.

In the sudden eerie quiet, Sark can hear them moving in to flank him on three sides. In less than a minute, he will be surrounded. This is going to get ugly.

Without warning, Sark bolts away from his sanctuary and runs straight at the biggest of the three. In his peripheral vision, he sees the other two – one to his right, one to his left – raise their weapons and take aim.

Just before they fire, Sark drops to the floor and slides on his back as he fires at the monster in his path. The giant in front of him drops instantly while the other two take each other out in the crossfire.

A nearly blinding red light flashes as a deafening klaxon announces the end of the game. CONGRATULATIONS SARK! LEVEL 38 WINNER!

Billy jumps up from his desk chair and pumps a fist into the air. Eat my dust, Tommy Jefferies, he shouts.

Wicca’s Originals @ Cyber Fair // September 1st – 26th

The Phase Mask and Glasses by Wicca’s Originals incorporates the latest tech available in external augmentation.

With its smooth, curved profile framing your eyes, the Phase Glasses are a top choice for anyone fashion savvy. But for netrunners and cyberdeckers, it includes direct neural interfacing and a full range display array, covering even your peripheral vision. Augmented reality has never looked sharper!

The mask itself, in addition to having a bold and mysterious look to it, is designed to defeat most forms of facial recognition.

In addition to this, it incorporates an air filter which removes the ever-prevalent smog from the air and has been shown to improve respiratory function with long term use. Both are able to secure to your head through pressure alone, or for a more secure fit, actual anchor points can be installed on the skull.

The Phase Mask and Glasses come with 10 color options for material and metal areas.

Both are unrigged for a unisex fit for any head, and are modifiable, allowing full customizability for opacity.

Can be acquired as a set or separately.

The Hawkeye is a superdermal augment designed by Wicca’s Originals. This device is worn over either eye, and is equipped with some of the latest in neural interfacing. Unintrusive and reversible by design, induction connectors tap into a few points to interact directly with the optical nerve and spatial processing center of the brain. Like its superhero namesake, the Hawkeye empowers its wearer with preternatural vision, allowing for extreme precision and range with marksmanship, the ability to heighten the contrast of moving objects, or to lock onto and track a target moving in a busy scene. If connected to a storage device, it also can record the footage seen. The Hawkeye comes in 10 color options for the materials and metals, and is unrigged for a unisex fit on any head.

“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.”

“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.
