What’s Next?

Today I do have a very special post – special to me, as I had an amazing girl with me. Abyss Artful. I adore her creativity, ideas and skills for quite some time.

Recently we started talking and we came across the idea we should make a picture together. You know how that is if both of the people that would like to do something together are busy and work a lot. Exactly that happened to Abyss and me for month. We always wanted to make a picture together and it just didn’t happen.

So this time we said we do want to make a cyber/cyberpunk picture and with the upcoming/now open Cyberfair we thought, this could be a great occasion to really come together and finally do this.

Since we do not know each other for that long yet, we both were excited and I was nervous as well. How it would go, how long it would take, would it work just the first time we try?

We are both perfectionists, we both wanted to shoot one version of the picture and from talks we had before we both did know from each other, that it could take us hours to have the perfect shot or pose or setup. So we said, we just meet and fool around a bit on one evening and then, when we re certain what we want to do, we meet the next day to shoot. Neither me or her are too familiar with couple poses, since we shoot all on our own a lot, so we thought about finding 2 poses that cooperate and make a cool scene. It was scary, how fast it did click and everything fell together so easy… really scary but as well awesome – hard to describe for me *giggles*

We had so much fun and soon we realized, how much we both are interested in having an “interaction” between the avatars, to have an interesting picture in the end. The more we fooled around, the more the concept came to live and I am still blown alway by the end result 🙂 It was so much fun, I really hope we will find a time and an idea again to work together for another picture.

To see Abyss version just clickHEREwhere you as well can find all her incredible, awesome work on her stream, too!

Thank you so much Abyss for an awesome evening and the fun we had!!!

“When you understand the Nature of a Thing, you know what it’s capable of.”

You can’t keep denying what you are, man. You think the humans will ever accept a half-breed like you? They can’t. They’re afraid of you. And they should be. You’re an animal, you’re a fuckin’ maniac!

Yay, Cyber/Punk by Flair for Events again opened its doors. It always feels like Christmas if a Cyberpunk themed event opens its gates with all the amazing goodies you can find there! Most likely it won’t be the only post about that awesome event, but I do have to start somewhere *giggles*

The cool pants and boots are a fabulous combo from AsteroidBox for this event. They come together in one pack and even for the single colors you have 16 colors/patterns to choose from. Each color already includes a huge HUD with many details to customize boots, knee pads, belts, leg strap, plus the neon details. For the fatpack you even can mix and match the styling of the leg sleeves individually and you can decide if you want to wear the pants, boots or hip circles all together or just parts of it. For today’s post i just skipped the neon circles at the hips, but I am sure they will come up in one of my next posts *winks* The “Nella Pants & Boots” are rigged for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female.

Another awesome release are the huge but (yes I found out while I was shooting) gentle giants. They are part of an awesome posing set from Black Cats Creations, which you as well will find at the Cyber/Punk event. You can choose between 5 amazing detailed giants with poses for each of them and you even can recolor the monster if you go for the fatpack.

There are so many exciting releases and designs available at the Cyber/Punk event, you should bring time and a huge wallet to not miss out any of them *winks*

Maybe see you there?

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 🙂
