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

Wicca’s Originals @ SL18B // June 17th – July 6th

Wicca’s Originals is proud to announce our participation at this years SL birthday!

The Ranger Boots are the practical option for if you’re going to be working around twisted metal or broken glass, or maybe just don’t want to get bitten by snakes. The tough reinforced leather is built in layers, and rises almost to the knee, with a series of buckled straps to keep it secure and prevent any chaffing for extended wear. The soles are thick rubber, with deep treading for navigating even the most unstable terrain. These are an excellent choice for hiking, rock climbing, and are even treated for water and weather resistance. The ideal outdoor boot, and stylish as well, coming in 10 different color palettes and metal options, they are fitted for Maitreya, Legacy (F), Hourglass, Freya, and Gianni bodies.

For our free gift we wanted something special for male and female! To match the Ranger Boots, the Rune Top has been re-imagined in a post apocalyptic theme, it will be a perfect fit for the boots!
The Rune SL18B version is fitted to Maitreya (Lara, Petite, Flat), Legacy (F) (Original & Perky) & Signature Gianni.

“Form follows function” is an old design addage, but even in the age of cyber augmentation, it’s still relevant. Enter the Cypher Pants, engineered by the brightest minds at Wicca’s Originals. These pants are more than just coverings for your legs, they provide thermal insulation to protect from heat and cold. They grant your hips and thighs with next-generation support, alleviating some of the strain on them, allowing you to run longer with less effort. And of course, there is the very practical aspect of the slash-resistant materials used, giving the wearer a sense of security against either laceration or tearing, from falls on the asphalt, to thorny bushes or even knives. All of this in a sleek, aesthetically pleasing package. Get your Cypher Pants today, and feel the difference. Comes with 10 colors palettes and metal options, for Maitreya, Legacy, and Gianni bodies — Also comes in a ‘Rune edition’, for wear with the Rune Top!

The Yuri Arms by Wicca’s Originals are more than meets the eye. At a glance, they are sleek sleeves, covering from wrist to mid-upper arm, but they are so much more. Using a series of induction pads, the Yuri Arms read micro-electic pulses going on just underneath the dermal layer, in the musculature, and send signals to expand or contract along channels in the nanocarbon material to supplement the body’s natural strength. The effects of this range from subtle support to being a force multiplier, improving the precision of detailed work that requires a steady hand, or amplifying the raw strength behind a throw or a punch. This patented technology provides the best augmentation you can get for upper body control, short of invasive surgeries. Comes in 10 color options, with 10 metals, for Maitreya, Legacy, and Gianni bodies — Also comes in a ‘Rune Edition’ variant for use with the Rune Top.

Wicca’s Originals @ The Warehouse Sale // March 23rd – April 18th

Wicca’s Originals has released their latest optimal augment, the Kingsford Eyepatch. Bringing form and function together, this curious looking facial decoration serves to do more than just cover the eye with a stylish design. The eyepatch is outfitted with analog parts, including an optical zoom on the lens which can be adjusted from the dial on the side of the face, and a shielded concave lens designed to be able to maximize the capture of light and allow the wearer to see in near-dark settings. Being all analog, the Kingsford design requires no batteries or electronics, and is easy to service. The squeamish may find the way it is studded to the face uncomfortable, but nobody got anywhere by letting such hang-ups hold them back. This unrigged eyepatch can be worn on the left or right eye, on any head, and comes in 5 colors for the leather and 5 colors for the metallic pieces.

Thank you Vivien and Aramis De’Lancoure for your time and patience for that picture, as well as the awesome pose ♥

Surrender?

TUNES

Even though I know what I’m looking for
She’s got a brick wall behind her door
I’d travel time and confess to her
But I’m afraid she’d shoot the messenger

Every word, every thought, every sound
Every touch, every smile, every frown
All the pain we’ve endured until now
All the hope that I lost, you have found

Surrender

I am still fooling around with the new “Ceylon 3.0” head from LeLUTKA. I wanted to try the classic button on the HUD to see what the head looks like if I choose that genius option, plus I wanted to see how my face mods (which are all not yet EvoX compatible) look on that face and what they to do it 😉

For my set I used some of the new group gifts, which DRD offer for their new store opening. You won’t believe it but every section has its own group gift!So you can get 5 at once at the moment!!! What is even more cool.. they packed some of their older designs into a huge container (you can find that at the right side of the building at the landing spot) calling it “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”. “Some” might be a little underestimated as you can find like 700+ items in there and DRD will keep adding stuff. Now the unbelievable… it only costs 4000L$ and you will get a lifetime free update! So the price might grow up over the time, but if you get it now… you get all the coming goodies for free!

Now you might want to know where that kick-ass cool outfit comes from… it is a mix and match of 2 AsteroidBox designs. The shirt you will find at the actual round of Anthem while the shorts should be at the main store by now.

I still see so many cool things in that “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”… I should get back to my platform and build some more scenes with them for new pictures 😉

Wicca’s Originals @ The Warehouse Sale // January 23rd – February 18th

Wicca’s Originals has done it again with the Fox Glasses. Merging form and function, this set of eyewear dares to be bold and brings something fresh to the table. These will match any punk aesthetic well, rejecting what have become boring norms when it comes to eyewear. Whether you need them for eyesight, to accessorize, or to do some field work and want something that looks cooler than bulky safety goggles, the Fox Glasses fit the bill. The base frame and ear supports are made of a rigid, durable alloy rather than plastic, designed to hold up to more intense wear and heat. The lens frames extends from the lens to shield your eye on the sides, providing protection from dust or glare. The affixed flip-up UV shades provide shielding from intense sources of light, like a welding torch, or staring into the sun, if you’re into that. A faux ‘power button’ fills the gap between the frames, preventing any shrapnel from settling in the gap between. The Fox Glasses come in 10 colors and metals, and are unrigged, intended to fit any gender and any body.

The Corsair Hands by Wicca’s Originals offer a unique type of prosthetic, with the aesthetic of something built out of your own garage, because not everyone has access to the highest end cybernetics. These are tailor for the rugged survivor or the unfortunate. The mounting bracket fits snugly to the forearm, and encases an analog logic chip which reads the slight movements of remaining muscle tissue. This is powered by two sizable batteries on the wrist, and translated into a limited range of motion of the hand and fingers, which themselves are made up of questionable materials, including a cut segment of a cheese grater which serves as a maintenance hatch for the wires and actuators. The fingers gently curved blades lined with holes, which not only make them lighter, but less likely to get stuck in whatever they might slice into. Comes in 10 color palettes and metals, for Maitreya, Slink, Freya, and Gianni bento hands.

Thank you so much for creating the pose for the teaser and posing for the pictures Ϯ.:Vɨvɨɇn Đɇ´ŁȺnȼøᵾɍɇ:.Ϯ & Ϯ.:Ⱥɍamɨs Đɇ´ŁȺnȼøᵾɍɇ:.Ϯ

DRD & Wicca’s Originals @ The Warehouse Sale // November 23rd – December 18th

Presenting DRD’s and Wicca’s Originals first ever collab!

Death Row Designs has teamed up with Wicca’s Originals to create the Alyx Legs. This prosthetic design is for the destitute out there, who can’t afford top-end medical limb replacements or don’t have access to a proper hospital. However, it’s also so much more than a simple peg leg. It sports a bucket thigh holder, with plenty of room to affix bumper stickers connected to a simple but functional hinge joint for the knee, which may squeak on occasion if left unoiled. The attachable wooden leg itself is the bottom half of a walking cane, complete with a rubber stop at the end to help with ‘grip’. However, it’s also so much more, to help you get a ‘leg up’ on your current, unfortunate situation! It has a utilitarian wire basket, to hold your various odds and ends in to help survive the wastelands. And for anyone who tries to give you any snark about your leg, there’s a sharp knife and back end of a sawblade where the foot might be, ready to deliver an attitude adjustment to them. The Alyx Legs are fitted to Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass, Freya, and Signature Gianni bodies. The accompanying HUD offers both Wicca’s Originals and Death Row Designs textures, and the color palette has a full 21 color options, giving great styling flexibility. While we are sorry for your loss of limb, we won’t ask how, and simply hope the Alyx Legs will help make your unique situation a bit more tolerable.

Wicca’s Originals @ ACCESS // November 12th – December 8th

The new Miriam Boots by Wicca’s Originals bring a fresh take on footwear. The most prominent feature is the blocky, thick platform and heel which features some unique embellishments. The holes drilled through them not only makes the boots weigh less, but also could be tied or chained together to hobble the wearer for fun. The metal bracings on the platform and the heel complement the rings of those gaps and are matched by bracings on the toe and shin. The metal addition gives it a soft ‘punk’ aesthetic, but what really gives these boots some edge is the faux tearing in them. The seeming ripped material reveals a smooth, flexible polyfiber mesh underneath, and on the other side conceals the zipper line in a flattering manner. The boot material and metal embellishments come in 10 colors, for Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, Hourglass and Physique feet.

Sometimes one of your Dreams comes true…

Sometimes you dream of something for a long time and when you think not too much about it, it all of a sudden comes true!

As a blogger you have some personal goals and this year another one of my biggest ones came true. I am allowed to blog for Death Row Designs! I am a DRD addicted for years, probably since I started playing Second Life. I adore their buildings and landscaping parts as well as their clothing, accessories and shoes. My inventory still holds accessories and body parts from times before mesh did enter the grid and now with BoM some of them do work again! And certainly I do not want to bother you only with the old stuff – Today I have something brand new for you! The “Hellion Outfit”, released at The Warehouse Sale event. The outfit is made for Maitreya Lara,/Petite, Legacy and Legacy Perky , Freya and Hourglass mesh bodies. The pants have 4 colors to choose from and the top even have 7 different versions – if I may give a suggestion… just get the fatpack, it is so worth it and you do not have to decide!

To complete my first ‘official’ DRD look, I certainly had to dig in my DRD folder to find all the goodies, which I already own, like the “Sticker Stompers” and the super cool beer hat, which even is an actual group gift at the DRD main store.

The mega cool neck tattoo, which goes down from the back of the head, touches the chin and goes down the cleavage in a new release as well and was made by Eclipse Art studio for the Kinky event. Since we have BoM it is so cool that you can have seamless tattoos that go up to your head as well – I always loved the idea of that, when a tattoo not just stops at the neckline. Speaking already of new releases, we cannot forget the generous gift called “Take Over”, that Vegas Tattoo put out at UBER!

Most of the time I do make my own sets for my shoots, but this time I decided to just hop down on the sim, outside of our store, where I was allowed to create Bartertown, a neat little post apoc place. What could make a better scenery for such a cool casual look than something from DRD? I decorated Bartertown with a lot of DRD designs and the “Beer Stand – Collection” felt like the right choice. I am looking forward on my new adventure with the awesome and crazy DRD team – I can’t wait to see what will be their next release 😉

I guess I should refill my beer hat and go for some shopping for my next post 😉

It has so many great details amd the textures are just incredible amazing. You do not have to use the full set and can decorate something with all the single parts as well, but I just loved how the softlink version did look like. The pack contains 20 single parts and you can arrange them as you like as well if you do not want to use the pre-made linked version. I love that DRD always provides a soft-linked version for all their buildings and structures, which allows you still to re-arrange or you can built your own version with all the single parts.
