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!

Germany seems to be weird sometimes, especially our government. Now that we have our Covid numbers going down constantly, even with the new virus variations… they can’t wait until the numbers are as low as the experts ask for – no we have to break open schools and kindergartens as fast as we can. I mea i see the problems, do not get me wrong, but what does it help if we are back to sky high numbers in the next 3 weeks and then have to lock down everything again?!? Can we not just wait like 2 weeks more until the numbers are low enough before we plan things like that? Especially as it was clear, that the numbers dropped really fast when the schools finally were closed again? Would it not make sense to put some effort into the internet and into getting the needed hardware to the kids who are not having any still? The online platform for Bavarian schools (Mebis) looks and acts like they would have been made in the Stone Age some when and instead of working on it it feels like they counted on the fact that the summer will kill the virus and it is gone after that. They had oe year now to fix things and besides the fact they allowed Microsoft Teams, nothing really has changed – and that wasn’t the work of our government *facepalms* It seems more important to hold on exams and schedules instead of taking care of our kids and their health. We all know now, that the kids do not get symptoms but they can carry the virus around secretly and infect all their family. I just don’t understand all those rules and requirements anymore. WE can have the kids in school, shoulder on shoulder, but we cannot have theaters and cinemas open who definitely have way better hygiene management for infection control, than any school has – at our school we do not even have warm water for the kids to wash their hands as requested. But sure, lets open the schools again for 3 or 4 weeks to again close down the whole country as the new virus variations push the numbers up again – If they keep acting like that and with the not working vaccine concept (we simply do not have enough yet and some do not have a 100% protection – not to mention there is not even one yet for kids under 16 years, which is allowed officially) we will go back and forth until summer 2022 🙁

Anyways, lets take a look on todays pictures and designs 😉

Again I am in a cyberpunk mood – no wonder we just had the Mainframe event! I am super sorry for posting this so late but lately my RL is completely upside down. My mom got a new knee, and I still have to take care of her, cook, clean and walk her dog at least 2 times a day while I try to shuffle my work around as much as I can. Sometimes I am just dead in the evening when I am done with all my day work and I instantly fall asleep on the couch even if I made me some coffee to stay awake for some SL work.

But I still love making pictures and I try my best to not come too much behind with my blogging schedule 😉

Like I said sadly the Mainframe event is already over, but many of the releases I am wearing were made for that and now should have found their ways to the designers main stores I suppose.

Finally Friday – Hooray!

Today I would love to show you some of the mega, amazing designs released at Mainframe and Midnight Order!

Lets start with Mainframe, a cyberpunk, sci-fi orientated event, which had it’s debut last year already. With it’s great success it opened its doors again now in January!

What caught my eyes immediately, was one of the amazing release from Lanevo. This huge pack piece called “Maneater Machine” is just perfect for any cyborg, sci-fi or future orientated look, which steps away from basic human looks only. You can imagine an alien having technical tentacles, or a cyborg with super cool, multiple arms added on its back – it definitely does set a statement!

The “Cyber Pulse” gloves from L’Emporio&PL could even hold the control panel for that cool back piece at the lower arm where you can see all those cables and technical parts. The gloves are super detailed and certainly they are bento enabled. If you style for a sci-fi look you cannot miss Graves. Jackie is one of the best leather and latex designers I know and with her fantastic ideas and skills she brings us only the best for years now. The bodysuit is BoM and with that the perfect base for any cyber look! Another incredible store is Butanik83. I discovered them last year on the first Mainframe events and since then I always have an eye on their releases. Their designs are incredibly detailed and textured – very realistic!

What I will use for one of my next posts a well, as the pictures today do not really give a good showcase for it is the kick ass waist part – a metal spine replacement part, with a rough and basic look to it gives an amazing vibe for any android, gynoid or cyber avatar.

The boots with the awesome spikes at the front come from {PSYCHO:Byts} and were released at the Midnight Order event. With the cool spikes at the front and the tight straps at the thigh, they make a perfect addition to any kind of cool and smart looks.

News @ Machoire – Back in Black

Machoire 01

Today I have the great pleasure to showcase some of the newest releases from Machoire.

The amazing “Veitades Hat” in black and the super edgy “Colde Heels” as well in black, both from Machoire.

The “Colde Heels” are made for the slink high mesh feet. with the huge circle shaped heel and the wonderful triangled front, those shoes are really a statement. Those high fashion and avant garde looking shoes definitely will turn heads everywhere you go and should not miss in a modern fashionistas wardrobe!

Machoire 02

The head piece is a very complex and detailed piece of art. With the huge back part that gives the imagination of a light fabric floating in the air and the wonderful mask, I would not dare to just call it mask or hat, as the whole design comes in one piece. The awesome waved silver lines at the sides and the edgy spiked curved part on the top are a perfect match for the cool looking solver mask, which is ornamented with some amazing chains across the eyes. The chains are repeated below the chin and with the shining gems at the forehead it really becomes a little precious in every wardrobe.

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Torn

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 003

Sometimes you just do not know where to go or what to do, you feel torn inside and you only see darkness. Sometimes your inner only feels like a big fight and you have no clue how to escape.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 002

Sometimes it it hard to find words to describe what you wanna say. And I tried to find words for this post and they just did not wanna flow. A close friend of mine, who is way better with words and who knows me very well wrote something for me after i showed her the pics and gave her a lot of single words and emotions and I would like to share it as it really expresses, what I only could say with pictures. Thank you Mal for finding the right words for me, for knowing me and understanding me even without any words sometimes.

Wicca's Wardrobe - Torn 001

Torn

I am alive – though I am dead

I am over you – though you bury me

I am me – though I am no one

I survive – though I die each day

I am strong – though I feel I will break any minute

I am you – though I don’t know who you are

I am here – though I don’t know where

I am understood – though you don’t know what I am talking about

I wanna enjoy –  though I don’t know fun anymore

I miss you – though I never know who you were

I am lonely – though there are crowds around me

I am dead – though I still move

I submit – though you are not worth it

I am all – though I cant cope

I will die – though I wanna live

I am weak – though I can do all I want

I am me  – though I am lost

I am there – though I don’t know where

I am a riddle – though it would be so easy

I wanna think – though I get stuck

I am happy – though I should not be

I am – though I am not

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Thank you Yula :)

Lately Xenobia Foxclaw had a great idea… she asked all the Finesmith models to think about their favourite Finesmith Designs set, snap it, write a few words about and posted them on the Finesmith Designs Blog. It was really hard to decide but in the end this was my contribution to it 😉

“As I was asked to pic my favourite Finesmith jewelry pieces, I did not think not too long and said “Yes sure, gimme a few minutes”…
…but then I was going over and over my Finesmith pieces and found out … it is harder then I thought to find my “favourite”, because if I woudl add all the ones I call my favourites one picture would not be enough 😉
So I was thinking, to wich piece I have the most personal relationship…
It was a huge honor for me to be chosen as one of the Finesmith Muse 2011. All of the finalists got a signature Inspiration set that carries our name. Yula put in so much time, effort and love in each piece she created. She tried to make for each of us a very personal set that mirrors our style and personality. For that she took time for each of us for talking to know us better and find out more about each finalist.
To honor all that she did and because she catched myself so much in the “Wicca” inspiration set I chose to wear it as my personal favourite.
Thank you Yula and the whole Finesmith Family, for a place in Second Life that I really can call home and family :)”

Showreview: BOSL Fashion Week – Virtual Super Heroes

Yesterday BOSL had a great show called “Virtual Super Heroes“. The show was part of the BOSL Fashion Week and it was great fun in the second show of this amazing row of shows.

Each model was asked to style his or her personal super hero look. There were so many incredible looks on the runway – it was just awesome. Free to style to a theme always is fun to me and if I am told have fun, go crazy… I am the happiest model on the grid :p

It was so cool that I had to snap my outfit and show it 🙂
