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 @ The Warehouse Sale // September 23rd – October 18th

A shiver runs through her body; whether from nerves or the low temperature in the room, Talida isn’t certain. After all, she is only wearing a leather thong and thigh-high boots and nothing else. She sits on the floor on a fluffy rug you expect to find in a pre-teen girl’s bedroom. Arms crossed over her breasts to maintain some semblance of modesty while the photographer adjust the lighting.

This is her first modeling job and not what Talida thought the business was like. But after all, a girl has to pay the rent. Granted, the thong is nothing to write home about (which she won’t tell a soul), but the boots are another matter. The leather is butter smooth and the stitching is high quality.

She can’t help but be fascinated by the wealth of studs, grommets and rings that covered the boots. The moment the front zippers sealed her legs inside, Talida felt seduced by the the luxury.

Before long, Talida’s hands caressed the leather as she stretched one leg high in the air, her foot pointed toward the ceiling. She didn’t notice the soft jazz music playing in the background. She didn’t notice the clicking of the camera. She didn’t notice the photographer moving stealthily around her. All that mattered are the boots.

There was no doubt that Talida would soon be famous.

Captivating…

Sometimes it is just a Discord call and you got a new sponsor for your blogging *giggles* It wasn’t planned in any way… it just happened. I did follow the releases or Rubedo for quite a while, since my friend Chey  told me she got a custom make up for one of her contests made by Foxy Ruby, owner and designer behind Rubedo.  Today when we talked I teased her with the question if she thinks, that I would qualify for being a Rubedo blogger when we again talked about the brand again – 5 minutes later I was a Rubedo blogger *giggles* I am always a bit nervous when it comes to makeup, as I do not have too  many good experiences with blogging makeup, since I am not the typical beauty, closeup, clean blogger. But Chey is the blogger manager and she knows my work so… lets give it a try!

I do like creative, unusual makeups and eyeshadows, they do give a face character and you can do so much with a certain color and style. When I tried the “Titania” eyeshadow,I instantly had the vision of one of those popular tattoo models in RL. I do not remember her name, but she does wear colorful and bold makeup when she does TV shows, events and interviews. I do like the dark casual, urban, Goth looks a lot anyway and so it wasn’t too hard to come up with a matching look 😉

To match the “Titania” eyeshadow from Rubedo, I used one of the lipsticks I recently got at Top1Salon. So the green was set already, as I liked that combo of black and green (certainly the eyeshadow comes in 13 more colors so you can find the one you need for your look) and I came across my usual problem – one shade of green now I need to find fingernails with the perfect matching shade of green – that can end up in a headache! But not of you have the awesome “My Nails” from L’Emporio! You can hide the text in the nails and with their amazing HUD you can have preset colors PLUS you can edit them with a colorfield.

Vegas now does tattoos that work with the LeLUTKA EvoX heads. At Uber they do have one of their newest releases called “Siren” and it perfectly matched the look which I was going for. The incredible amazing necklace was made by AsteroidBox while the cool rings are from Eclipse Art Studio. Now who made that super cool glasses? Certainly CerberusXing! Those glasses are available in gold and silver and you get a HUD to texture the lenses in 8 different colors and as well each of them separately.

I am super excited what else the Rubedo makeup will challenge me to develop – I am looking forward to it 😉

Thank you Chey and Foxy for the opportunity ♥

Wasteland Summer…

TUNES

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin’ dirt and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity?
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people looking half-dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

The Maddy Gloves, by Wicca’s Originals, are a fun, but practical arm accessory. Whether you need to wear it as a compression glove, or simply want some extra padding on your arms, these arm sheaths have you covered. These gloves extend from elbow to the base of the thumb and forefinger, and are secured by a series of four straps and buckles, allowing the wearer to adjust the tension in them for comfort or muscle and joint relief around the wrist. And even if there is no practical need, be bold and try them anyway; they’re a great alternative to the everyday bracelet, and can add some more ‘edge’ to your styling. They come in 10 different colors with 10 metal options as well, and are fitted for Maitreya, Legacy (F), Slink (F), and Gianni bodies.

The Carvis Bindi is the latest in esoteric accessories for your enjoyment and spiritual growth by Wicca’s Originals. This simple headpiece adorns your sixth chakra, and resting the pentacle design is said to help the wearer attune their personal energy to the five elements, represented by the five points; spirit, air, earth, water, and fire. Meditating on these energies, to concentrate them to one’s seat of concealed wisdom is a source of great strength. The Carvis Bindi can be held in place by a single chain, with two optional side chains, depending on personal style. It is a unisex, unrigged piece, intended to be worn on any head, and comes with 10 metal color options.

New Ventures…

New Ventures…

I gave myself a new duty since I realized, that I do have a shopping addiction when it comes to sales. I am sure you all know that feeling, if you go and look at sales you will find a reason for each and every item you like, so you can buy it. But ever so often I fund stuff I bought weeks or month later, still unpacked in my inventory, because I forgot about them for quite a while. That doesn’t make them bad or ugly, but it makes me sad that I saw things, liked them and then forgot about them. So I made it a new rule to use everything I buy, at least once for a picture… we will see how that goes, but I am positive about it for now and already didn’t shop as crazy as usual for the past 2 weeks *giggles*

So this is my first post for some “private” fun… with some of my prey from my last shopping tours *giggles*

Since I felt the freedom to not have to be specific about something I thought I could practice my “built a set and nit just use a backdrop” skills and went a little crazy with all kind of deco and furniture from DRD, NOMAD, 22769 and some more – I do have to admit, first I thought it is too cluttered, but then I did really like it 🙂

This is just the beginning of a new venture for me, so I am sure there will follow some more until I know, if it was a good idea or not… but that only time will show *winks*

“Don’t try to talk, she ain’t in the mood…”

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

“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…

Wicca’s Originals @ The Darkness Event // April 2021

Wicca’s Originals @ The Darkness Event // April 5th – 28th

Item:
One pair of tall boots, nicknamed 'Lagoa' Boots'. Designer: Wicca's
Originals
.

At first glance, subject appears to be another tall pair
of boots, rising to the mid-thigh. A set of studs line the front of
the two-tone, subtly patterned material, providing security for the
lacing which criss-crosses over the leg, binding the boot securely
and snugly to shapely legs. A tall heel works in conjunction with a
high pitched arch of the boot's outersole to lift the wearer's foot
to a pleasant height, tightening the leg muscles and buttocks in
order to support the pose.

However, those trained in the esoteric and
the strange may recognize that there is more to these boots than
style alone. The inclusion of three crosses wrapped around the front
of the platform seem to promise either protection against or command
over demons and spirits. With the inclusion of the inverted pentacle
on the back of the heel, the latter seems more likely. These are the
boots of one who dabbles in dark arts, who makes deals and consorts
with devils. As a last resort, this particular set of footwear arms
the wearer with a very sharp, tapered heel spike, which is capable of
being changed out with different metals. It is well documented that
some extraplanar beings are susceptible to different sorts of things,
silvers, irons, some even respond to gold or brass, so this seems a
very deliberate choice. Recommended next steps for this investigation
are to track down those who have acquired a set of Lagoa Boots and
observe them, covertly if possible, in order to see what connections
they may have to the other world. This pair of Lagoa Boots will be
kept for 24 hours for continued study, after which time they will be
destructed in accordance with protocol. Other pairs may come in up to
10 color options and metal options, for Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, or
Hourglass bodies
