The Greed of Man

There are only five of us left.

One year ago, when 214 men and women arrived on this desolate, unnamed planetoid, it was with only one thought on out minds – how sinfully rich we would be when we left.

When Boyton Bros. Mining Corporation discovered a new fuel source, which they shamelessly named BBMC-X, their stocks skyrocketed. Just one of the small green rocks, no bigger than a baseball, could fuel a city the size of New York for two years. And just in time, too. The Earth, with all its greedy, wasteful inhabitants, had depleted all the natural resources on the planet.

Mankind now reached out to the heavens and stripped each planet we touched until it, too, was a dead rock in space. We took and stole every useful resource for consumption on Earth and left behind an empty shell.

So 214 men and women came to this lifeless planet with the promise of untold wealth once we strip-mined every last iota of BBMC-X in existence. Everything ran smoothly for the first month, until the killings began. It began in the deepest shafts when a shift reported for work and found a dozen bodies shredded to pieces; limbs torn away.

Security was sent into the tunnels armed with the deadliest weapons know to man, only never to be seen again. Soon the attacks were closer to Base Camp. Metal building ripped open like they were made of paper. The mined BBMC-X disappeared. That’s when we saw the monster. Hideous. Malevolent Lethal. A mindless killing machine.

Its skin was like armor that no man-made weapon could pierce, Long talons sprouted from its back that could tear a man to pieces in seconds or fell him with a single drop poisonous venom. It was mindless, merciless and killed without conscious. Now the remaining five are hunting the beast. Or, is it hunting us?

As we enter a large chamber filled with BBMC-X, the attack is swift and silent. The other were killed instantly. I was not so lucky. I feel the venom flow through my blood like acid as convulsions violently shake my body. In my last moments, I watch the gruesome creature carefully pick up a small green rock that fell to the ground close by. A fanged mouth opens and hisses its contempt for me as it gently cradles the rock to it chest.

The hiss turns into what I can only describe as a soft, soothing purr as a deadly, gnarled claw reaches out to a green orb bigger than my head. At the creature’s touch, the orb glows and shadows shift inside it. Something inside is … alive. Each orb the creature lovingly caresses responds the same way.

These rocks are not a new fuel source. It is not ore to mine for our consumption. They are eggs. And the creature was only protecting her young!

Dear God, what have we done!

The amazing story was written by my dear friend Anne Daumig. She was with me when I did shoot the pictures. Since I know what she can do and because she already had some cool ideas while I was looking for poses for my pictures, I could not resist to beg her… I asked her if she would be in a writing mood and give it  a try for a story to my picture ideas – She agreed and made my day with her writing magic again. Check out her BLOG and FLICKR and don’t forget to give her some star love *winks*

Thank you so much Anne ♥

Follow me to the other side…

TUNES

There’s no one no one to replace you, you’re the one that shines for me.
Gotta go where no one else can go, I’m the one, the one that will follow.
And I see a ray of light, you’re my beacon in the night.
I can feel, feel you coming, gonna kiss the deadly sin.
and I hear, hear you calling; now I’m answering
I still can see you and I’m at your side.
I still can feel you, cause I’m there, on the other side.

Come with me to the other side, follow me to the other side…

Finally I have summer holidays and now I can focus on catching up blogging properly 😉

The last 2 school weeks with exams, this year the floods and certainly Covid adding up to the last school weeks stress, made it insanely awful – more than usual… I was so exhausted sometimes, that I just sat on my couch when I was done with RL work and fell asleep not even finishing my coffee. Who knows me .. knows as well I would NEVER waste a coffee… so you can go figure how that past weeks felt kinda.

Anyways, now I do have holidays and the fun can begin \o/

And it does begin with great news from Midnight Order and some of my favorite creators 😉

Midnight Order is done by Second Life Syndicate. They do put a lot of love and a hell of  work in their events to have the best designer of the grid creating for their themed events. I love their themes a lot as they are always something out of the box. With the Midnight Order they touch the dark fantasy and mystical souls and certainly that is something for me *winks*

Today I am coming to you with amazing news from cinphul. They created 2 amazing items for the Midnight Order event, the “council of flesh” dress and boots. A perfect set, even if you can purchase both separately. You will get a HUD with 7 different colors for the base texture as well as the freaking awesome claws all over the dress and boots – simply a must have for all those, who love the dark side or life or having fun in being creative for pictures and art!

Certainly I had to pair that incredible outfit with some other designs that just fit in the same mindset *grins wicked* So my tattoos for this special look must come from Nefekalum Tattoos. The  top one called “Archaic” and with its materials, the long sleeves and the amazingly ornamented chest perfectly matches that crazy look while the lower one called “Redemption” gives a nice accent instead of wearing stockings – I hate having ‘naked’ legs so that tattoo just was the perfect fit for me.

Last but not least… for an ‘insane’ look I needed my “Ziekling’s Tongue” from CerberusXing and the “Damned Ears from L’Emporio. I immensely enjoyed to create those pictures and it did remind me that I really should go for the ‘crazy’ looks more often again. For those who care about me – I am ok it just was fun I didn’t drift off to the dark side completely again… yet 😉

There is more than one Demon here…

TUNES

You must have taken the wrong turn
You’ve ended up in hell
Hear me, temptress of the night,
There is more than one demon here
I see temples I yearn to defile,
‘Cause our horns hide divinity

And I think that the smell of your soft skin,
Is no less than the last legal drug
So here’s my seditious and bold whim:
Let’s drag the moon and make him watch
This grip will bloom into a bruise
These scars are your tattoos

This evil thing, it knows me…

Ring around the Rosie
Pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes

Lost ghosts surround me
I can’t fall down

Today they Bloggies took place, the Blogger and Vlogger awards done by BVN. I was nominated in quite a few categories and so when I got the taxi to the celebration event, I did throw on something as formal as possible for me – I do not own one single gown anymore – and took the ride to the Seraphim sim, where the event took place. I never expect to actually win something as the competition is huge and there are so many amazing people nominated.

A lot of people were there and it looked all very festive and classy – I again felt so miss placed *giggles*. I am not used to go to such celebrations or awards, eve if as a musician in RL we had some… I just can’t get used to it for what ever reason. When they started the announcements and who won all the categories (yes there were quite a few :P), I still felt somehow excited and nervous. Even if you never really count to win something, the hope that it nevertheless happens sticks deep inside somehow, I guess that’s human after all.

But all of a sudden I heard the speakers saying my name and I was like “Wait what?!?” and it seems, I won the Best Shoe blogger award! O…M…G…! Thank you so much for everyone that voted for me!

If I remember correctly I got a few awesome runner up placements:

Best Accessories Blogger: 1st Runner Up

Best Roleplay Blogger: 2nd Runner Up

Best Fantasy Blogger: 2nd Runner Up

Best Review Blogger: 1st Runner Up

Best Photographic Editing: 2nd Runner Up

Most Improved Blogger: 1st Runner Up

If I did name the category not exactly right, I am very sorry but when I heard my name again and again I was so excited that I might not have the 100% correct description of some of them *blushes*

Again thank you to everyone that voted for me that really means a lot to me!

But now lets take a lok at my today look as I do have some freaking, amazing designers to showcase!

Yesterday I had the honor to be asked if I would like to blog for {PSYCHO:Byts}… if I would like?!? YES!!! Certainly I would LOVE to! I do love that brand for a longer time and alraedy blogged the designs quite a few times *dances around* And her we go – my first blog as official {PSYCHO:Byts} blogger with the kick ass amazing “Nekhbet Mummy Arms” released at the Salem event. The arms are rigged for Maitreya and Legacy body only. With the huge HUD you can customize the skin, the bandages, the leather parts and the buckles. As well on the HUD you will find 3 buttons called “Whole”, “Half Sleeve” and “Hand”, which gives you even more possibilities to wear your awesome new arms.

CerberusXing and DRD have some hyper cool news as well, fir exmaple the super cool leg bandages I am wearing you can find at The Warehouse Sale event and the incredible mask, which reminded me aboutthe SAW movies , which I totally love, is one of the hunt gifts at the Hallow Manor event! DRD is participating in so many events this month, you better safe your money to get all this amazig designs: Salem, Satan Inc, Fameshed, Hallow Manor, Epiphany and The Warehouse Sale!

I hope you enjoy the dark season as much as I do – Happy Halloween!

Breathing Underwater

TUNES

Breathing Underwater

There’s a light in the dark where the sky splits apart
Where the stars find a way to shine through all the spaces in between
Here we are, face to face, all alone in this place
And the night is finally coming down to you and me
Tell me where you been hiding
Oh, I want to know, oh
You’re my silver lining covered in gold
Tell me what am I feeling
Well, it’s hard to explain
Like underwater breathing, swimming in rain

Wanna fly through the blue bay on the bottom with you
Getting lost in the waves, let the world slip away
Where nobody can find us, I don’t wanna be safe
Leave it all behind us, make an escape
Oh, tell me what am I feeling
Oh, it’s hard to explain
Like underwater breathing, swimming in rain

Wanna go to the edge
Wanna dive in again
Here we are, face to face
All alone in this place
And it’s finally coming down to you and me
Breathing under

Oh oh, all I really wanna do, do
Is fall a little deeper with you, you
Never come up
Breathing, breathing underwater
Weightless with every little kiss you steal, boy
You are m-making me feel, feel
Like I’m breathing
Breathing, breathing underwater

The Approach…

Crazy times… Corona still holds the world in its hand and all of us try to do our best to fight it, even if we cannot see yet any success and things seem to get worse and worse. I know it isn’t the fact, but sometimes it feels like it. We are now in our second week without school in Germany. I am a teacher (usually in the mornings I do teach at a school) and I do have a tiny private afternoon tutoring company. Usually I am surrounded by kids all day and in the past I had days where that was quite exhausting. Always having 10 to 60 kids around you from 8 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon didn’t feel always easy but now that I see how it is to have none of them around – it doesn’t feel good either. I am lucky to have the possibility to hold online classes and have some one-on-one tutoring as well, but it doesn’t feel the same. Before the difficulties were the noise in bigger groups, or the kids being distracted by looking outside the window and now… the difficulties have changed. I never thought it could be that hard to explain something like mathematics to a child online only online… you talk a lot more trying to describe everything and if they have to draw triangles with certain length or certain degree angles. Most of them do not have the technical equipment to show you what they did, they usually only can take a snap with their cellphone and send it to me.. and if they spend already like 20 min to do that task and then something went wrong you can start all over again.

Certainly it has a positive side as well – I do not have the distance and the time to drive to school and back in the afternoon and I have the advantage of having an open bowser all the time to find answers I might not know out of the blue for certain questions, so I do not wanna whine or rage about it – I just discover everyday the differences and the different difficulties. Between all that I try to keep my Mom inside and safe – she is over 70 and recently had a brain tumor and chemo after it, so she is in the risk group for that damn virus as well. So my Second Life times at the moment are a little bit more limited and not as regular as I used to be, but I do not want to stop blogging and taking pictures completely as it feels like a little bit of resting time and holiday for my brain when I do that.

The pictures for todays post I already did  over a week ago, but I wasn’t able to post work them and write something about yet. So now the Cyber fair by ACCESS sadly is over but I am sure you can find all the goodies in the designers main stores already or soon.

First of all the amazing vinyl ensemble from A&Y called “Phex”, which is a combination of a long sleeved top and short pants with an awesome, realistic looking shine. It is decorated with straps and zippers and with the huge HUD you can change the colors for all different parts including the metals.

All the amazing accessories I as well found at the Cyber Fair, but like I said before I am sure you will find them most likely either already or soon at the designers main stores. The incredible face art done by Nefekalum Tattoos comes in 3 different versions. You can find many different tings in your folder. First of all the 3 different versions of the makeup it self. Black Tears only, Red Smudge only and a full version of both. Furthermore you will find appliers for head and body materials and the belonging erasers. On top of that, since all his tattoos are materials enabled, Sir Skye added a perfect projector (light source) as well, for you to use if you like.

Certainly I did need some cool nails and rings to complete my outfit and it was no question that the “Creature Claws” from CerberusXing were just the perfect choice. They are available in 3 colors (silver, onyx and gold) and rigged for Belleza Jake,  Signature Gianni, Maitreya and the female Slink hands.

The smart looking hair style was made by no.match. I love the wild top hair, the shaved sides and the fact that you still have 2 wisps at your ears. Like always for no.match hair styles you have different color packs and a fatpack available. The purchases will include a shaved hairbase as well, but since I do have my own shaved hair base I did not use it for todays post 😉

It was time again to built my own set – I found so many cool things at the Cyber Fair, I just had to. All you can see, from the backdrop over the drinks, food (weed) vending machine and the incredible animals, I collected at the Cyber Fair.

I would like to draw your attention a little bot towards the animals. The “Caged Biter” is available in 3 different colors. You can separate the animal from the cage as you can see in my pictures. The Biter is an animated mesh design and has adorable movements, which make it possible to have some more interactive looking pictures with the different poses or the animal.

I do have an immense fun at the moment with cyber and sci-fi posts as they open a whole new range for pictures and styles to me. We do not know what the fashion or environment will look like in our future, but for me that gives us a lot of room to experiment and the possibility of unending creativity 🙂

Black Widow

TUNES

Kiss me black widow.
Have no mercy on me tonight.
Feed on me, black widow.
Come feel me.
I want to touch you.

No rescue,
I already carry your poison within me.
All my vitality,
sinks into the abyss of lust,
tonight.

[Original German Lyrics from Eisbrecher]

When I styled todays look, I already had that song (above) in mind and since it is German, I tried to translate a few  lines for you all 😉

Again I am showcasing some of the incredible releases from the Mainframe event. The event has about half-time by now and some creators even put half-time news or gifts out us all – you really should check them out 😉

When I saw the insect legs from AMBIX, I immediately had an idea what I would like to do with them. I never saw something like that before in Second Life in such an amazing quality and with even an AO coming with them… The Black Widow jumped into my mind and settled down while I was looking through some other new releases of the Mainframe event. I marked all the goodies of the Mainframe event blow my credits you you can be sure to not miss any of them.

Sometimes I have the desire to tell a little story with my pictures and with the Black Widow, I had to have a victim for her and I didn’t want to go for the most obvious and use a human this time (maybe another time *grins wickedly*). That is the reason for the awesome, little dragonfly with me on my pictures.

So my biggest challenge this time was, how to  get my Black Widow in a cyberpunk or sci-fi looking surrounding without looking too weird *giggles* While I played around with the “hex frames” from Toxxic, I did remember the “Neon Retrowave Landscaping” set, which I picked up on a FLF. I KNEW they would come in handy some when!

Now that I had my perfect set I was able to go some more crazy with more news from Mainframe! Normandy made some really interesting pieces and since I was already wearing insect legs, the cool “Auto Fangs” with the matching lip stick, just matched perfectly in my imagination and the “Oeil” set with the eyes and the forehead accessories made the face look just perfect! I love cyberpunk and sci-fi sets and styles a lot as you can go crazy with kinda no limits not being called constantly a freak :p

Before I will run back to SL to do some more pictures, I would like to drag your attention to my panties and collar, which are made by CerberusXing. I already showcased both before but lately I simply cannot live without CerberusXing anyways plus I saw exciting news on his Flickr stream. He is remodeling his store completely and gave a little sneak preview (HERE) – it is really worth watching it!

And as I already said… back to Second Life for some more picture and fancy ideas *snickers*
