Going to Hell

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, ร 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Introducing the Verne Boots, the latest of Wicca’s Originals footwear line. These boots rise up high on your thigh, snugly hugging the contours of your leg all the way down and emphasizing the shape of it. They’re smartly styled in an eye-catching two-tone, with a softer fabric material wrapped around each leg and foot, and a tougher latex layered on the front-side, affixed with metal studs all the way down. A thick, bulky platform and heel support your feet in a high arch.

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // November 28th – December 13rd

The Ayda Collar and Pasties by Wicca’s Originals is a new take on the usual dainty collar, and offers a much more dangerous kind of pasties. Some collars get locked on, this mass of metal gets welded around the neck much more permanently, and even includes optional pipes to connect into the lungs so someone who dares to be your master can literally take your breath away. The pasties redefine the joke of nipples poking one’s eyes out, by including a thin spike curved downward. While most pasties are glued on, we leave it up to the imagination how these heavier masses of metal stay firmly affixed to tender, yielding breast flesh. Not for the faint of heart. This set pairs great with the Ayda Outfit itself, and has a color palette to match, with 20 color options! Fits Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass, and Freya bodies.

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // October 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // October 28th – November 23rd

The Jaimie Boots by Wicca’s Originals are the latest in fetish wear. Long, smooth, sleek latex hugs every curve, from your toe all the way up to high on the thigh. The material is decorated with a colored stripe, sporting metal studs along the outer side of the boot. The most prominent feature is the series of spikes adorning the front of the boot, from the top of the thigh down to the thick toe of the boot. It tells everyone that the wearer can and will hurt you, if you deserve it.. or beg for it. The Jaimie Boots also sport a unique take on the heel itself, touching ground with a trident design of three points. This design exudes power and the promise of something wicked, and is sure to quicken the pulse of anyone who has the pleasure of having that trident heel dig into their chest. The boots come in 10 color patterns and metal color options for the studs, for the Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, and Hourglass bodies.

The iconography of the divine power of femininity continues in these Ashera Heels, completing the set from Wicca’s Originals. In ancient Semitic religion, Ashera is queen-consort of the sky god Anu, also known as the “mother of all living”, “lady of the sea”, and “the lioness”. These heels are comprised of three of the feminine ‘V’ symbol, with optional colored material inserts, woven into the delicate chains which start on the lower shin and travel down atop the top of the foot, and a tall stiletto heel in the back lifts the foot and emphasizes the shapeliness of the leg. The toes are left open and bare, allowing any nail paint to be on full display as well. As with the Nyana Legchains and the Valorie Bodychains, the Ashera Heels come in 10 colors for the chains and heels, as well as the ‘V’ inserts themselves, and are rigged to the Maitreya, Legacy, Slink, and Freya feet.

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // July 28th – August 23rd

The Black Widow boots are the newest footwear put out by Wicca’s Originals. The boot cut goes all the way up to mid-thigh, hugging every curve of the leg along the way. With that alone, these boots would be sleek, sexy accessories for the foot, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. These boots are fitted with a pair of studded straps along each thigh, and graced with series of barbed chains, spanning from the front of the thigh all the way down to the shin. The heel spike complements these chains with a very literal heel spike, all of it promising sweet suffering for anyone who gets too close. Some would-be lovers may be intimidated by these boots, but let’s face it — they probably couldn’t handle you, anyway. The Black Widow boots come in 10 color options, for Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass, and Freya.

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky // June 28th – July 23rd

The Faythe Booties by Wicca’s Originals are the latest fetish foot fashion you need in your life. These vinyl boots conform to the outline of your feet and ankles so smoothly, it’s like a second, shiny skin. The exaggerated, high arch and tall, thin lacing up the front gives these heels an very feminine, almost delicate ballet posture. This is in sharp contrast to the bulky platform and sharp spike of the heel, which is sharp enough to dig into the skin of a lover. A pair of latex straps affixed near the top of the boot sport little locks, securing the boot from removal and keeping those feet arched high. The high shine of these boots along with the bold contrasting colors, coming in 10 different options with 6 metals for the locks and heel spike, makes them real eye-catchers. They can complement and complete any fetishwear set. Get yours today! Comes in Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, and Slink (Hourglass+Physique)

Me, myself and I

Recently I was asked, why you never do casual anymore? Are you only going to do scary and creepy pictures now? Are you going to give up your versatileness?

The simple answer is… NO!

But what I gave up is to let others dictate me what I am doing or how I am showcasing things on my blog *winks*

I am in Second Life nearly 13 years now and I tried a lot of things on my blog. When I started I thought I have to have as many posts a day as I can pump out on one day and that 7 days a week. I had times where I ran though 5 to 7 “posts” a day – Posts in terms of I do a quick snap shot and post a style card. That didn’t satisfy me after some time and I started to write something to every picture. First the facts about the clothing, like what kind of HUDs, how many colors or what special features they had. Later even a little bit of a review about what I liked most of the items and designs I was given to blog. Again I felt at some point that that wasn’t the only thing what I liked to do and I dared to write a little bit about things in SL that bothered me, or about certain topics to explain them better as I had a feeling they were misunderstood and underestimated a lot. That I still like to do and sometimes my blog even was a place to vent for me and write things just off my soul to get rid of them. In my view a blog has to be more than just a style card. If I just would like to have style cards nowadays, I would just blog on Flickr I guess. But since I usually need or want more than one picture to showcase my styling, to as well highlight the details, I decided to keep my blog and continue to write what comes to my mind or sometimes even just post lyrics and tunes if I feel like it or have nothing to say.

 

Today I really felt kinda casual, or better I felt like doing my way of casual styling. When I showed my look to a friend and said I felt casual, she laughed her ass of and said: “Yeah, maybe for you that would be casual… could you ever imagine to go out like that?” My answer was: “Oh yeah… I did that in my 20s”. she stopped talking and asked if I would be serious… yes, I am serious. I was a little rebel in my RL as well – probably I am still one, but my temper might be more adult now as it used to be *snickers*

So lets take a look at the style… I wanted to use the “Fianna” face tattoo from Nefekalum Tattoos, parts of the “Voodoo Dolls Backpack and Mouthdoll” gacha set and the brand new “Infernal Claws” from .:E.A.Studio:. , the “Pepper Ankle Boots” from [Gos] and the “Heavy Duty Collar” made by CerberusXing. So I put that all on and looked at it thinking how the hell I could make this work as a look that I would call casual…

Maybe lets take a closer look at the “basic” parts I just had put on and then go from there. The “Pepper Ankle Boots” from [Gos] are a perfect pair of shoes for many kind of genres you want to style for. You can wear them to jeans, skirts, dresses or even to lingerie. With the edgy tip of the shoes and the huge, heavy heel it is very versatile as it combines the smart with the elegant for me. With the possibility to choose from many leather colors as well as from metal, shiny colors it allowed a huge range of use.

The “Voodoo Doll Backpack” is part of a gacha from .:E.A.Studio:. it is one of the rares and comes with a huge HUD to customize it for different colors and outfits. It is designed to wear it over one shoulder with a little buckled strap. The “Infernal Claws ” you will find at the 3rd Edition of the Fetish Fair at the booth of .:E.A.Studio:. until the 27th of December. You can choose if you want to wear only the rings or the nails or the whole set of it. With the HUD you have the possibility to color the metals and leather, the claw itself on the middle finger, the rings and the you even can color and hide all the nails separate for each finger. An amazing set and a must have for every Gothic wardrobe!

The “Heavy Duty Collar” from CerberusXing lives up to its name. It is a heavy iron collar, which lays around your neck with an attached leash in the front. It really has a martial look but I do love the feeling when a heavy cold metal collar gets locked around my neck *grins wickedly*. The face tattoo, even better the Face art comes from Skye Nefekalum for his brand Nefekalum Tattoos. It is very special and for me it did support the martial look of the collar perfectly as it as well is very harsh and dark.

To me that makes a perfect “Wicca Casual” and even if I am aware of, that this might not be a casual for everyone… this is my blog, my Second Life,ย  my personal fun and creativity and the spot where I can be 100% me, myself and I *winks*

Fly with the Dragons

After a rough week again I am able to do a blog post. It is funny how bad you desire some SL blogging when RL becomes stressy and rough, while you sometimes desire RL back when blogging is too overloading ๐Ÿ˜‰

I saw those dragons from E.V.E for a while and did not dare to get them, as I wasn’t sure if I can make it on time. But today I finally got the chance ๐Ÿ™‚

The “Scatha” dragons come with a huge HUD to chnage colors and even the opacity of the head and the tail. Their eyes first did drive me nuts – they kept moving no matter what I was doing – until I found out, they follow my avatar!

While I was thinking for a cool set I remembered the “Sunny Spells”, as well made by E.V.E Studio. The made such a great background that I decided I do not need more ๐Ÿ˜‰

I want to drag your attention to my hands for a little bit. I do know FORMANAILS for a long time, but did you ever hear of it? Ivi Bings is one of the best skilled artists when it comes to nail art and hand accessories. Today I combined 2 of her amazing designs – the “Simple Rings” and the “Chris Claws”. They go along perfectly and with the HUD you can customize each part to what ever you need. If you search for something special, something different and out of the box for your hands, go take a look at FORMANAILS. She recently changed her store and you now go shopping in a huge shopping bag ๐Ÿ˜‰

The hair as well is something new, made ny no.match for the MOM event. The “No.Suffer” hairstyle is am amazing unisex, short hairstyle. I love the hair textures of the no.match hair a lot and with the update from her A version to her B version, they became even more realistic. With my short hair addiction, the “No.Suffer” just was a must have for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tomorrow I will be back with some more Halloween looks – I enjoy the dark and scary season way too much I guess ๐Ÿ˜‰
