TUNES

There’s no one no one to replace you, you’re the one that shines for me.
Gotta go where no one else can go, I’m the one, the one that will follow.
And I see a ray of light, you’re my beacon in the night.
I can feel, feel you coming, gonna kiss the deadly sin.
and I hear, hear you calling; now I’m answering
I still can see you and I’m at your side.
I still can feel you, cause I’m there, on the other side.

Come with me to the other side, follow me to the other side…

Finally I have summer holidays and now I can focus on catching up blogging properly 😉

The last 2 school weeks with exams, this year the floods and certainly Covid adding up to the last school weeks stress, made it insanely awful – more than usual… I was so exhausted sometimes, that I just sat on my couch when I was done with RL work and fell asleep not even finishing my coffee. Who knows me .. knows as well I would NEVER waste a coffee… so you can go figure how that past weeks felt kinda.

Anyways, now I do have holidays and the fun can begin \o/

And it does begin with great news from Midnight Order and some of my favorite creators 😉

Midnight Order is done by Second Life Syndicate. They do put a lot of love and a hell of  work in their events to have the best designer of the grid creating for their themed events. I love their themes a lot as they are always something out of the box. With the Midnight Order they touch the dark fantasy and mystical souls and certainly that is something for me *winks*

Today I am coming to you with amazing news from cinphul. They created 2 amazing items for the Midnight Order event, the “council of flesh” dress and boots. A perfect set, even if you can purchase both separately. You will get a HUD with 7 different colors for the base texture as well as the freaking awesome claws all over the dress and boots – simply a must have for all those, who love the dark side or life or having fun in being creative for pictures and art!

Certainly I had to pair that incredible outfit with some other designs that just fit in the same mindset *grins wicked* So my tattoos for this special look must come from Nefekalum Tattoos. The  top one called “Archaic” and with its materials, the long sleeves and the amazingly ornamented chest perfectly matches that crazy look while the lower one called “Redemption” gives a nice accent instead of wearing stockings – I hate having ‘naked’ legs so that tattoo just was the perfect fit for me.

Last but not least… for an ‘insane’ look I needed my “Ziekling’s Tongue” from CerberusXing and the “Damned Ears from L’Emporio. I immensely enjoyed to create those pictures and it did remind me that I really should go for the ‘crazy’ looks more often again. For those who care about me – I am ok it just was fun I didn’t drift off to the dark side completely again… yet 😉

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!

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

[-The Rolling Stones-]

This time of the year usually feels the best to me. I can be me without getting asked if I am ok or if something bad happened *giggles* The season allows all the dark fantasies, creepy imaginations and scary moments with Halloween coming closer and closer.

I have so many ideas in mind i really have to channel them and thin about what I want to post next. I know I still want to showcase some of the amazing designs of the Engine Room while it still is running but I had to bring todays pictures first as it was itching so bad in my fingers. I made this pictures already a few weeks ago for an amazing exhibit at the L’autre Oeil Gallery and it already was hard to wait until the gallery opened *grins*

It is not a secret that I do have an addiction for the more darker side of fantasy. Recently a few people asked me why I am always wearing black or dark colors. They tried to challenge or even tease me, that it would not be difficult to create dark images with dark colors, while it would be way more difficult to manage that with light or pastel colors. Now since I have an super cute evil Kawaii doll daughter, who does really scary but pastel colored art work and pictures, I thought I would take n that challenge and chose to do the color I usually avoid the most to create some dark fantasy – PINK!

CURELESS has a perfect gacha released not too long ago, which was perfect for that project – The “Moirai Sisters” gacha. I took the amazing torso as base for my look and mixed and matched other designs with it. Since I thought it is kinda a sick idea, I used the super amazing “Welcome Home – Asylum Photo Scene” as background and decorated it with several items from DRD, CerberusXing and Remarkable Oblivion.

For the pose, I went to Le Poppycock. I did remember, that she released a gachas with that amazing skeletons. When I arrived there, I discovered she did not only have one! With the “Nyctophilia” gacha I found the perfect poses/props for my idea.
