“Nothing ’bout me is ordinary…”

TUNES

Nothing ’bout me is ordinary
My friends all say I’m going crazy
I don’t hear a word that they say
‘Cause the voices in my head are legendary
But I’ll never tell ’em where the bodies are buried
Keeps them coming back every day

Back again with some cool news from NEO Japan. Today with that amazing outfit from AsteroidBox called “Ayden”. Rigged for Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Petite, V-Tech, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female, Belleza Jake and Legacy Male, it comes in 10 colors to choose from. Each color includes a plain and an ornamented design of the corset and comes in a huge color range for all different parts – if you get the fatpack you will get all of that awesome options, too just with all 10 colors at once :p

The cool messy hair I as well found at NEO Japan, made my monso. What I loved a lot about it, is that the hair has 3 different style options. It is really awesome that nowadays you will get some options for one hairstyle, so you can adapt it to different outfits and pictures. I had it so often that I wished I could shift the hair from the left to the right side and now you can find such things on some HUDs of certain brands – I really enjoy that.

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!

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 🙂

“In 2077, what makes someone a criminal? Getting caught!”

[- Cyberpunk 2077, by Johnny Silverhand -]

It is Cyber Fair again! ACCESS again runs another round of the Cyber Fair at the moment with amazing designers and creations for all those who have a sci-fi, cyber or cyberpunk addiction like me 😉

I would like to spotlight some of my person highlights (there will be more soon in my nest posts!!)… I love to mix and match looks and so I sometimes break down outfits into their single pieces to get a more unique and personalized look. Sometimes designers do not like that, especially if they made full outfits, they like to have them being showcased together. If I blog for a certain designer and only want to showcase their exclusive releases, I usually keep them together and try to used them in mix and matches later on. But since I just wandered over the fair to get some more inspiration, I was able to do my first look completely free from any obligations and duties just having fun and fooling around with all the ‘goodies’ 😉

Let’s start with the awesome jacket. The “Thrasher Jacket” was made by A&Y one of my favorite designers if it comes to cyber or science fiction looks. I love the her creative ideas and the way how she does texture her designs. It has a certain shininess and the materials are truly amazing without being too ‘glowy’ or light. That makes it very easy to work with lights, projectors and environments to have a cool atmosphere without washing out the colors or textures – something I seriously adore. With mesh it is always difficult to layer things and I LOVE the designs of Jackie Graves for that. she makes incredible amazing clothing on layers and tattoo layers. Even with being only a layers I rarely saw better details and highlights on leather or latex creations. I wanted to stay human this time, but still have a futuristic lightly extreme look going on and the “Drone Corset” from ::Static:: was just perfect for that. The extreme slim waist was a perfect opposite to the heavy jacket. Cyberpunk is a lot about accessories and technical replacements or better modifications of human body parts and in many movies we see a lot of extreme and colorful makeups, too.

For the eyes itself I wanted something more extreme, too and there is no better place, than Madame Noir to find such unique and extraordinary designs. She recently as well started to make really interesting and fresh mesh designs, which I as well really like (and will showcase again soon as well *grins*), but her eyes are still the most striking things for me as they really come in so many creative and different looks. And not only the styles… she offers applier for nearly every popular body plus an omega version AND mesh/layer eyes too – in all colors you can imagine so that they really fit into every look. In the credits below you can see, I used a lot of the new releases of the Cyber Fair, but there is so much more! You really should take a look for yourself while I am preparing for more awesome and crazy cyber ideas or looks – probably more shopping as well 😉

Maybe we meet soon at the ACCESS Cyber Fair!

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 ♥

Numb

TUNES

I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control?
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take
And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)

Blessed Be

A new year has begun… 2021! Let’s see what it has for all of us 😉

We are still in the dark season and I am enjoying doing the darker stuff anyway – but you know that already.

Today I am posting something which I planned to put into a magazine but apparently it wasn’t released in December as planned. I thought before it vanishes into the Nirvana, I will add some more pictures and make a blog post out of it 😉

So here we go!

Most of the designs I found at the Saturnalia event (I really hope they will do more events as their team really does amazig work and something different) –  such a super amazing event, directed to the more traditional and naturally side of the Christmas time. To me it was such a relief to see that Christmas isn’t just all shiny gold & red, not just the Santa Claus, Cola Truck, modern, profit-oriented, video game console Christmas. There is people like me who can see the more traditional, mystical and nature-loving Christmas – or even remember what Yule means 😉 For those who do not know, just lemme show, what Wikipedia has to say about it, as it might sound better than me trying to describe it with my limited English words *snickers*

“Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time” or “Yule season”) is a festival historically observed by the Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the original celebrations of Yule to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht.

Later departing from its pagan roots, Yule underwent Christianised reformulation, resulting in the term Christmastide. Some present-day Christmas customs and traditions such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others may have connections to older pagan Yule traditions. Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule are still used in Nordic countries and Estonia to describe Christmas and other festivals occurring during the winter holiday season. Today, Yule is celebrated in Heathenry and other forms of Neopaganism, as well as in LaVeyan Satanism.”

[- Wikipedia -]

I am still at home while the state is fighting and debating weather to open up stores and schools again or just one of both or none… to me it slowly becomes a joke and the measures get more and more opaque and difficult to comprehend. People get more and more disaffected. And even if I hate to admit that, I start understanding them. They are not against any rules – I am not speaking of all those who deny the existence of Covid or those who spread weird conspiracy theories – the normal mainstream crowd, who just don’t understand all this back and forth politics. How you can say schools can be open with 20-30 people,  inadequate hygiene standards, while bars and restaurants who invested hundreds or thousands of Euros to exactly follow their given rules and as soon as they had everything installed and working, they get closed again while schools and kindergartens are still remain open… anyway, I am not the one to make changes or decisions, but I slowly can understand those how get annoyed and frustrated.

I just will stick at home as much as possible to not risk an infection because of my mother and partner as they are both counted as group at risk members. I will teach and give music lessons online and trying to keep creative in SL and make the best out of it 😉

Happy new year and blessed be!
