We weren’t born to follow
Come on and get up off your knees
When life is a bitter pill to swallow
You gotta hold on to what you believe
Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
And that your saints and sinners bleed

You gotta stand up for what you believe

“I am a siren, and for my adoration of mankind, have been caught in fishing nets one time too many. And in those fishing nets I have learned too many unfavorable things about human intentions and the lack of trust and goodwill; I’m not going to allow myself to be caught, anymore. Sirens do well at singing the sirens’ song and dragging vile people to their deaths, and for good reason!

Sometimes the quiet, soft Notes are beautiful, too…

There are those times when you just want to relax and let your mind just float, not thinking about something special or fancy. I was in such a mood yesterday when I put on the incredible “Morana Dress” from AsteroidBox, which you can find at the actual round of the Equal10 event. It does fit Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Petite, Belleza Freya, eBody Reborn, Legacy Female, Legacy Perky body sizes. To quote the designer: “Single packs include 18 options for the top part of the dress, plus 14 options for the leather harness and 5 metal options. Fatpack includes all color / pattern options and the top part and bottom part can be changed individually. Each purchase also includes Bakes-on-Mesh stockings, which come in black and white and in 3 designs – ripped, solid and just the panties/garter.”

Another amazing release comes from Exile at Collabor88 this month. The “Emma” hairstyle instantly gave me a very girly feeling. I loved the way how the bangs fell down my forehead lightly wild and the amazing smooth waves that surrounded my head. With the Master HUD you get 4 different style options with all the amazing colors we know from Exile hair on 2 page of the HUD. I tried to used 2 different style options for my 2 pictures, too.

The idea for the pictures resulted out of yesterday afternoon, when I was going through my old pictures and memories of past SL times. I really enjoy snapping pictures and work them a lot – it is like a therapy for me, if the day was stressful and exhausting. I hope you can enjoy my more quite, girly moments as much as I do sometimes 😉

Picture by me – .:Tribal Tuesday:. – “My Heaven” (Bento)

And again another premiere and it was so much fun that I am sure we will do that again…

Vivien and me both had to blog a poses form different pose makers and thought we could make a little series out of it. So since her picture was the first she took the first part of the evening and me, with the second picture, the second part a little later at night 😉

We are both CerberusXing addicts and so most of our clothing certainly comes from there for this picture. Vivien was so generous to offer her bedroom for the shootings, so if you want to know more about the single items or her look as well – just ask her if you dare 😉

I more and more enjoy doing pictures with a friend and with Vivien it is so… easy. We think a like a lot, we have a close sense of style, our skins cooperate just amazing and since we are both making poses it is as well easy to arrange pose balls and do minor adjustments if needed. Sometimes we just sit hours and think about what we could and sometimes it is done in a blink, if one of us had an idea already. I do enjoy both sides of it and it does help my own creativity a lot, if we just talk about picture concepts and ideas. We never did a 2 part series before but even that was so much fun, that I hope we can do that again!

Angels & Demons – Part 2

Originally shot for Eclipse Magazine // June 2021 Page 159-168 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_june_2021

Angels & Demons

What would you choose? Who would you become? Would you rather be enchanted or consumed by Heaven or Hell, Light or Dark, Good or Evil, Love or Hate, or to be Blessed or Cursed. Angels and Demons are polar opposites of one another within many cultures and in fiction. On one hand, they are a form of symbology and on the other they are seen in religion, mythology, and fantasy. Magical and mystical beings that we will read find in books, movies,movies, TV, anime or plays from ancient to modern. Even within the confines of real life and Second Life, we will roleplay and become one of them.

Despite the difference in abilities and the cultural milieu they come from, they share some similarities, such as, hierarchical ranks, miraculous or magical powers, and the enmities and friendships with each other and with mortals. Though Angels and Demons are often in a never-ending battle to defeat the other, in that chaos comes a little spark: opposites, suddenly attracted to or obsessed  with each other. Will they escape and find peace or be consumed by their conflict?

Their appearances can differ, both taking on ugly, distorted, fear-inducing manifestations, or transforming into beautiful, ethereal and alluring personas. Angels usually are depicted with long, modest, feather-like flowing garments, while a Demons attire is often tight, conforming to every curve or their form making it matter little how much or how little clothing they wear.. Although in the more modern age and flight of fantasy, anything goes, the color palettes don’t often change. Angels decorated in white and softened colors and pastels signifying purity and innocence, guiding you on your travels, while the Demons adorn black and deep, rich colors, warning you to watch where you tread, but do you want to? Will they draw you into the darkness forever lost in their grasp.
