And so it went
The children lost their minds
Beggin’ for forgiveness
Was such a waste of time
And the bullets start to fly
And the bough’s about to break
When you hear them cry
It’s too much for me to take
They said the world does not belong to you
You are not the king, I am not the fool
They said the world does not belong to you
It don’t belong to you
It belongs to me

“In this Paradise you’ll find just what your looking for…”

TUNES

I could take your breath away,
I could make this feel so right
Out of the blackest shadows
Into your burning light
Your touch would enthrall my heart,
My touch could release your soul
Lying warm and dark in your arms,
Come close to me now and take control
Riding through endless nights,
Bury the nameless dead
The stars will rain down in the night
Cast out of Heaven by jealous angels of death
Together we’ll rule our world
Together we’ll rule theirs too

Lightning and thunder collide
At the edge of the world for me and you
In this Paradise you’ll find just what your looking for,
Beauty right before you eyes,
How could you ask for more?
Here behind these eyes,
Here inside my soul
Hear the screams of a crucifixion ring through the dark,
Ring through the cold
Reach up and pull me down
Into your hallowed ground
I’ll lead you into temptation,
Buried in passion I’ll lead you down…

Steampunk Heart

TUNES

Clockwork ticker, beating pulse
It lives and loves on wild impulse
Shiver and shake like feverish imps
If you look inside and take a glimpse
Romanticism is just an illusion
To a heart that beats confusion
Mechanical wonder but oh, so cold
The wheels and cogs in brass and gold
Manipulate the ghost in the machine
Ignored and loathed like something obscene
Tarnished and tattered by time and misuse
A strange device suffered decades of abuse
Mechanical lungs, screwed in ribs like art
All of them hiding my Steampunk hear

My Rage…

TUNES

Everyone’s a sinner, baby
And so are you
We don’t really need a reason
For the things we do

[- De/Vision -]

Yes, finally I found myself in the new Avalon head, but that was quite a journey and without someones help I probably would not have made that…

When I tried the 3 new head releases of LeLUTKA for the Skin Fair 2021, I first liked Ceylon the most. After fooling aournd with all 3, it turned out more and more, that the Avalon head features most of the things I like for Wicca’s face. It takes me in forever if I am finally willing to change to a new head, to find the right skin, the right mods, make the perfect shape… that is why I usually avoid changing heads often for my main character – blogging other heads is a totally different thing, that I actually enjoy, as I can built a character I have in mind at that moment when I do the pictures.

I wanted to try a look with an Albino skin – as I always loved the special features of that very special kind of skins – plus my I had the imagination my “no brows” policy would look lovely with that. I tried various skins from various brands inworld and from Marketplace. It seems I have a different vision of an Albino skin that most of the other have. All I found was either something Goth/Vampire looking or some cute, pale, rose skins with glowy cheeks and/or glossy, kissy lips kinda girly/dolly looking – that was not what I wanted…

A little frustrated I gave up on that thought and just went further with looking for pale, porcelain looking skins. And as fate plays out, you find what you are looking for completely unexpected. I was looking though one of the weekly sales events and my eyes got stuck on a skin. Unfocused and fidgety as I am, something came up and I got distracted. A few hours later I had a talk with Vivien and she reminded me of that skin again and I jumped over there trying it. When I saw what it did to my head, I was just speechless. I never had heard from that skin brand before and what I saw did really blow me away. A skin, very detailed, amazingly toned and without the typical girly look on it even without any face mods – not yet as edgy as I like it, but better than anything I was trying before. Certainly it was just the face as so often lately – I come from a time (before appliers came who made it reasonable to part the skin in body and head as you needed one applier for each) where skins used to be in one piece and not split up in head and body if both are “layers” (BoM) – so I took a look, how much the body part would be and how it looks on my body. I was amazed when I saw, that the body skin had an affordable prize as well and so I got face and body skin.

Back at my working space I sat down and worked on my shape for hours – If you ever tried to make a new shape from scratch, you know how long that can take. After 5 or more hours I finally was satisfied and happy and wanted to share my result with dear friends of mine. So I knocked at their screen with an IM and got a teleport. When I arrived there, I still was so excited about my new “me” and asked, what both of them would think about and I got weird and confusing answers like “Maybe you should fix your eyes they are poking out a little” or “Maybe the piercings need a little adjustment as they look out of place”. I was completely confused… I usually look very closely on my attachments and how can rigged eyes made for the head look out of place?!? I mean I know both of them are perfectionists like me and so I started struggling and caming on myself again, but I didn’t see what they seemed to see. So I did a gayzo and showed them my view. I got 2 gyazos in return and my blood froze in my veins – THAT was not even close to what I saw. The first things I could imagine was trying to undeform my avatar, which didn’t do anything so I came to the idea of toggling my shape with an older one… and then I was shocked. When I opened my current outfit folder, I saw that I am not wearing any shape at all! It was a huge surprise, because usually you cannot take off a shape completely! I went to my shapes folder and realized, the shape I was working on wasn’t there at all and some of the shapes I made the days before were missing, too. I opened the last safed shape and looked at the date and it said 3rd of March – We have beginning of April now!!! WTF?!? Ok, we all know SL and how it can act up sometimes, so the first thing I did was I relogged, hoping that it would just be a bug and that would fix it. When I came back, the shapes were still gone and I realized there are other complete folders missing too in my objects folder. Slowly panic raised up my throat and I thought I might have to clear cache, since I didn’t do that for a while – again nothing… I know it is just Second Life and I know that a shape isn’t something to whine about. BUT if you spent like a whole day to make something and then it is gone, you have nothing to remake it 100% again, as you didn’t make notes of any numbers… It IS god damn frustrating and I found myself in a mixture of madness, sadness, anger and rage. It was at the middle of the night and I was the only awake person in the house, so I could not even talk to someone and yell out my feelings to get rid of them. But if you have really close friends on SL, they even can “smell” though the web, over the ocean, what you are going through and all of a sudden you get an unexpected call. First I was scared to take the call as I didn’t want anyone to hear in what a condition I was, but if you respect someone, value his friendship and especially if it someone that shares your certain lifestyle, you better pick up that call. So to the mixture of already existing emotions, I felt nervosity adding and I was lightly scared as well, but I took that call – it turned out that it was the best thing I could have done. Even if he sounded serious and partwise firm, he calmed me down and he pulled me out again from that dark corner I was starting to draw myself back to. I still was mad about what had happened and sweared to just trash the whole idea of that new head and go back to my existing one. But that didn’t seem an option for him either and he tried to insist on the fac,t I just should restart from scracth and that if I made it once, I can do it again. At the end of the call he sent me to bed to get some rest and to a fresh restart on the next day – I didn’t see that happening at that point, but since the sun already was rising, I logged out and went to bed. I still hoped it was an SL bug and maybe I would login the next day and everything would be back to normal.

Certainly that wasn’t the case and I alredy switched back to my old look when I got an IM with a new vendor picture – The Hunger tattoo, which kinda became a trademark for me on my old face, made for the new EvoX heads. DAMN… suddenly I did remeber that I was harassing him at least 3 times yesterday, to make a version for the new EvoX heads – he said he would do that when he feels like it is time to do so. And now…? I felt it was kinda on purpose, to force me back to work on that new Avalon head… how mean… and how effective! Today I just wanted to do a quicky of my new look, but I will take those glasses off soon to showcase that incredible new version of the Hunger tattoo made b Nefekalum Tattoos. This new version for EvoX comes in different colors and matching materials for your LeLUTKA EvoX head. The reason why I am saying that, would be that I know it will go on the Wanderlust Weekend sale on the 10th and 11th of April and you have the unique chance to get that incredible, amazing design for only 50L$ before it rises to its regular price at them Nefekalum Tattoos main store!!!

Thank you Sir Skye, for catching me in that particular night and for the time you spent to talk to me… and certinly as well for making me sit down on my ass and work on that shape again 😉

Even though I know what I’m looking for
She’s got a brick wall behind her door
I’d travel time and confess to her
But I’m afraid she’d shoot the messenger

Every word, every thought, every sound
Every touch, every smile, every frown
All the pain we’ve endured until now
All the hope that I lost, you have found

Surrender

I am still fooling around with the new “Ceylon 3.0” head from LeLUTKA. I wanted to try the classic button on the HUD to see what the head looks like if I choose that genius option, plus I wanted to see how my face mods (which are all not yet EvoX compatible) look on that face and what they to do it 😉

For my set I used some of the new group gifts, which DRD offer for their new store opening. You won’t believe it but every section has its own group gift!So you can get 5 at once at the moment!!! What is even more cool.. they packed some of their older designs into a huge container (you can find that at the right side of the building at the landing spot) calling it “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”. “Some” might be a little underestimated as you can find like 700+ items in there and DRD will keep adding stuff. Now the unbelievable… it only costs 4000L$ and you will get a lifetime free update! So the price might grow up over the time, but if you get it now… you get all the coming goodies for free!

Now you might want to know where that kick-ass cool outfit comes from… it is a mix and match of 2 AsteroidBox designs. The shirt you will find at the actual round of Anthem while the shorts should be at the main store by now.

I still see so many cool things in that “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”… I should get back to my platform and build some more scenes with them for new pictures 😉

“There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill winter bastard though dry. The Korova Milkbar was a milk-plus mesto, and you may, O my brothers, have forgotten what these mestos were like, things changing so skorry these days, and everybody very quick to forget, newspapers not being read much neither.”

[- Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange  -]

I do not know how that happened but when I was ready dressed, ,I instantly got a Clockwork Orange feeling. I do love that movie, but didn’t see it for along time. So when I sat down and started to post work those pictures I had to watch it again to get the right feeling for it *grins* That ideas obviously was the reason why I added the bloody bat to my look and put myself in that grunge backyard. I started with the super cool “Nova Overalls” outfit from AsteroidBox, when I realized that they as well do have new shoes that completely fit to that outfit. While I was playing with the huge HUD and all its possibilities (maaany different textures and as well you can hide the shirt!) I discovered the striped version and remembered, that I had gloves that had a stripe option as well from {PSYCHO:Byts}. Certainly I needed some finger bandages as well to get the cool side of the “droogies” look. While I was looking through my L’Emporio Folder for those finger bandages, I saw that they had so cool new releases as well and the hat totally fit into my look – the cool collar as well! If I had planned to mix and match so many of my favorite designers I never would have made it, but this time it fell into place so easily… I have no clue how that happened, but I love it!

As soon as I put on that mega amazing veil from Nefekalum Tattoos (yes – it really is a tattoo with materials!) I did know I have to find those sharp kinda trademark lashes, which Alex had on just one eye in the movie – I found that at Shiny Stuffs. sadly I could not apply it just to one eye, like it originally was on the left eye only.

It didn’t happen for a long time that the imagination for a picture or story came so fast to my mind, after putting on just the first 2 or 3 items and I really enjoyed my journey in the past with that movie again. I have to say it again seemed very up-to-date to our times at the moment if you get the essence of that movie – that felt kinda scary, but I do believe in the human race to not make the future as dark again as it was in the past!

Again I am coming to you with an amazing release from Midnight Order. The event just passed its half time celebrations and there are some cool new items available there. Until the 20th of February you can get all those amazing designs, gifts and news.

Today I would like to draw your attention on the release of AsteroidBox. The ultra awesome “Sabien” Outfit is their release for the Midnight Order event. It is a full outfit, coming in one piece – pants, corset, blouse and the amazing detailed chest ruffles, held by that beautiful gem. With the HUD you get a lot of different colors to choose from. And with that already being more than just cool, you even get a bloody and a clean version for all colors and parts. I always adored the mesh and texture skills of Leith – owner and designer of AsteroidBox – and with this ensemble made for male and female he again outdid himself. A definite highlight is the wonderful waist corset with the amazing detailed decor – not to mention the whole outfit is a total highlight anyway *winks*

Since I have a fable for mix and match looks,  I added the cool “KnottArms” made by the Eclipse Art Studio. I know I already blogged about them, but they are so awesome, come in so many colors and two different fabrics, there’s is a lot of more room for showcasing them 😉 They can be found in a gacha machine at the main store by now.

For the shoes and that outfit you usually would think about some Victorian looking boots, but when I saw the “*Refill*” boots – now as well available for as a female version – I could not resist to add them to my outfit and they gave the whole look a neat little, mean twist. I really love to add opposites that turn the whole look again a slight little bit!

As already mentioned, the “Sabien Outfit” as well has male body versions available, which brought me to the idea I could do a cool couple shoot with Redclaw Inshan my RL/SL partner. Usually he tries to avoid shoots, as he hates to redress and style (or being styled by me, saying what to add and loose *grins*), but when I showed him that outfit he was all in for it. He decided to go for the bloody version of the outfit and as well added some cool boots from L’Emporio – can you tell I am addicted to their shoes and not only to the shoes! The only thing I rarely can change is his hair – he loves his “Dext” hair from A&Y, but for this picture it was totally fine for me and … it is kinda his trademark so I didn’t start an argument about it.

Some of the decor used for this pictures you as well can find at the Midnight Order. The amazing fountain, which you can see behind us was made by [ContraptioN] and the little mechanical heart (having a holding pose in it too, which we didn’t use for this picture) comes from Reliquary (!R!).

I hope I am able to do more pictures with friends and family soon. I really do enjoy them a lot, even if they are usually more work or take more time, as I am not that used to it as if I snap just myself 😉

“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.

Master of puppets, I’m pulling your strings
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can’t see a thing
Just call my name ’cause I’ll hear you scream
Master!

[- Metallica -]

What a week… don’t you hate that, if things go like 180 degrees the other way as you planned it? I am one of those, who like to at least plan a week ahead, what I do have to do, what I want to do and what I am supposed to do. I usually hardly can focus on things and I keep forgetting things very quickly – my friends know that and thank god they are not too mad with me usually *snickers* – and that is why I usually at least make a rough draft on a piece of paper or my calendar for each week.

Corona and the closing of the schools already messes that up weekly and if something else comes across, it can instantly become a disaster. That is what happened the past week. Blessedly it did all calm down and I finally could manage to get all done.

That gives me the time to post today. I know the Puppet Show gacha isn’t a new release from Moon Amore, but sometimes things need time until the “kiss me” and I know what I want to do with them 😉 I do enjoy the changeover from new releases, things I got because I liked them, but didn’t have the right inspiration and all time favorites. Many tried to tell me a blog always has to be up to date and you only can use things once – I completely disagree with that. My blog is my personal sandbox and I can play the way I like to play 😉 Certainly I will have new releases which I found in stores and on events, or amazing designs I got from my incredible, awesome sponsors, but as well there are times where I just can fool around with things out of my inventory and create pictures just the way I feel in that very moment 😉

Exactly that happened a few days ago with the Puppet Show gacha from Moon Amore and I really enjoyed playing with it as you can see ♥
