Come, Join me on the darker Side!

It is Midnight Order time again! Today that amazing event opened its doors again for their first anniversary round! I love the event as you can get all that dark and creepy and evil things there *giggles like mad* As you will see in the credits, nearly all you can see on the picture, can be found at that amazing event run by Second Life Syndicate.

Lately I get asked more and more often about the landmarks of the stores in my credits… as simple as it is – when it is colored/highlighted… just click on it and you will get the direct TP to the store and if you click on the event, it will bring you right there as well *winks*

As much as I would like to talk more, I am so excited to work on my second post for that amazing event. Maybe I am in a writing mood in my next post a little more. Until then… Happy Shopping!

Wicca’s Originals @ The Dark Style Fair // October 2021

Wicca’s Originals @ The Dark Style Fair // October 9th – 31st

There was no moon to light her way, but it also cloaked her escape. She ran as fast as she could through the dense woods on pure instinct, like an animal in flight, Fitting, since he treated her like a dog.
One minute He offered a kind hand; lulled her into a false sense of comfort. Then, without warning, the pain He caused tore her heart and soul to shreds, Was love suppose to be so painful?
She fell against a tree as her legs gave out beneath her. Lungs burning, her breath sawed harshly in and out of her chest. She looked over her shoulder to see if anyone pursued, but all she saw was darkness. That was all her life really was – endless darkness.
Others had escaped and He had dismissed their absence with a flick of a wrist as if they were nothing more than an annoying gnat. But He said Rhoda was special. Is that why He especially enjoyed hurting her? Building her up to only beat down so far that death was her only escape?
Yes, she often thought of death. The sweet release. The peaceful darkness. She came close, several times. The promises He made and failed to keep. The lies that so easily rolled off his tongue. Sweet words meant to pacify a child that held no meaning to Him as walked away and left her alone and bleeding while he went to find pleasure with his other woman.

That’s not love. That’s greed. The need to possess more than anyone else. A selfish child hoarding all the toys just so no one else could have them. If one was lost, three more took its place. That’s all she really was – a shiny trinket to display. His true pleasure came from the compliments He received about her. Yes, that stroked His ego. He loved what she earned Him – adoration.
No more. She was not a thing. She was not the shiny ruby He named her after. She had a name! And by all that was holy, she would hear that name again or die trying. When she heard His angry shout, she hide behind the tree. His punishments were cruel, oh so very cruel.
It was time to run. Nowhere to go. No one to help her. It didn’t matter. If she didn’t run for her life now, the last tiny bit of life inside her would die.
He won’t hurt her again. No one will ever hurt Rhoda again.

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // September 2021 // Araneus Saga Chaper 1

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // September 28th – October 23th

Araneus Saga – Chapter 1

Three days before her Coronation, Wicca stands in the Great Chamber with a heavy heart. She stares at the shattered remains of the case that once contained the Araneus, the three symbols of leadership which she must accept in a formal ceremony before she can reign as Queen. Without the Araneus, Wicca’s Kingdom may be lost forever.

The Royal Guard informed Wicca that three rebels each took one piece of the Araneus and fled the Kingdom in three different directions. However, the rebels were not clever at hiding their tracks and the guards discovered the location of all three pieces. Wicca ordered three pairs of guards, all dressed as commoners, to follow the path of the thieves and recover the Araneus.

Hours later, one of the thieves lie dead at Wicca’s feet. He took his own life rather than risk capture and torture at the hand of the Royal Guard. The necklace – the Heart of People – granting her the right to rule the kingdom, was en route to a neighboring Kingdom with an eye on Wicca’s throne. Had the thief been successful, her peaceful kingdom would be at the mercy of a tyrannical Warlord.

The return of the necklace was not enough. Until the remaining two pieces of the Araneus were returned, no one was safe.

To be continued …

TUNES

The one that you fear is so close
The woman tattooed with the rose
Claws that are sharp, she’ll tear you apart
Make you into food for the crows

Revenge is her aim, she’ll make you pay
She talks a mean game and she’ll blow you away

Get out of town as soon as you can
You don’t want to face the Queen of the Damned

Fortunately I’m crazy!

TUNES

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!

[- Eisbrecher, original German lyrics -]

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!

Going to Hell

TUNES

Father did you miss me,
Been locked up a while.
I got caught for what I did but took it all in style.
Laid to rest all my confessions I gave way back when.
Now I’m versed in so much worse,
So I am back again, …

[- Pretty Wreckless -]

Sometimes you meet people and after a short while you get the feeling you know them since forever…

While I was styling I showed the style to Vivien and she seemed to like it so I asked her if she would not want do join in the picture. In seconds she had a matching style and we started to have fun quite a while. I already had done my pose and it was awesome to see how fast she arranged herself around and between me to make her fit into the scene. I anyway love her creativity when it comes to making poses. My head is always so stuffed, that I rarely be able to really make my own poses. But since I saw her working, Í found my way slowly back into that, too – and I really enjoy it again – nevertheless I always love when Vivian does her magic and so for the closeup I again could not resist to ask her, if she would like to make a pose again and she did another kick ass, cool one 😉

I have a feeling that won’t be our last collaboration, since we seem a pretty productive and creative team for that – plus, I hae to admit I immensely enjoy the time working with her. We have so much fun and it is a complete different journey that just doing pictures on my own. It does trigger other parts of my creativity and it as well challenges me to break my usual Photoshop routine, having a second person with a complete different skin and shape as my normal workflow and techniques apply differently on her avatar 🙂

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // February 28th – March 23rd

The Arden Eyepatch, by Wicca’s Originals, is here for when you need a semi-permanent solution to a lost eye. However you gained that injury is in the past, and is your secret to keep. We’re just interested in making sure you keep looking good. While there are many options of flimsy patches you can strap to your head, the Arden Eyepatch is unique in anchoring to your face along the brow and cheekbone with a series of small metal studs. We’ve also added the iconography of the cross, both as a dangling charm as well as to the eyepatch itself. Wicca’s Originals makes no promises to the efficacy of this being able to keep evil spirits at bay, either those within or without, but it probably can’t hurt. This eyepatch comes in 10 color options, and can be worn on the left, right, or both eyes. Unrigged for a unisex fit for any head.

I welcome you to your hell
Look around
I hope you like what you see
Have a drink
Have a smoke
It’s your home now so feel free
Swallow your panic

About giving up your soul?
No way out
There’s no way out of this hole

“Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It’s a rule.”

[- Laurell K. Hamilton -]

For the current issue of the Eclipse Magazine, again I was allowed to showcase a role play genre. My choice this time was Vampires. I wanted to cover the more traditional and vintage side of it as well as the modern one.

For the more traditional, Victorian one I had the great pleasure, to get some company from Vivien Delancoure. It is always fun to do picture with friends, but usually I just do not dare to ask, as sometimes I take ages until I have my final pose, shot and background. I hate to waste others peoples time. With Vivien it was different. She is a blogger as well, making wonderful pictures and creates most of her poses by herself – Just take a look at her Flickr HERE. So she knows how long it can take and that made me brave enough to ask her, if she would like to join me for a picture. Her style is usually goth-romantic or dark romantic, which already was perfect for what I was going for. She was so sweet and patient and made the whole shoot to a lot of fun combined with a lovely chitchat 😉 I have a feeling, that this will be not our last shoot together as it really was awesome to work with her.

Thank you Vivien, for your time, patience and a new growing friendship I do not want to miss again 😉

My style you can find – like usual – below this post. For Vivien’s look, just take a look at her blog HERE.

Casting a Spell?

TUNES

She’s just testing her wings and if you give in to her, you’ll be just another feather in her cap-she’ll drop you in a flash.
She’s casting a spell, she’s casting a spell, well if she’s casting a spell, I can cast one as well.
So I said. “No, no, no, I ain’t falling for this!
This girl is built to tease; she’s only testing the efficiency of her kiss.”
She’s casting a spell.
Well, if she’s casting a spell; I can cast one as well.
She wants to check out how you check out on her test-bed:
Will you get in her book or will you go right to her head?
She’s casting a spell.
Well, if she’s casting a spell; I can cast one as well.
And so, I cast it right back on her, don’t you know my luck; she fell under the influence and then the thunder struck.
Now we’re casting a spell, we’re casting a spell-you can cast one as well!
