Belated Happy Halloween! – Or welcome to the dark season of the year *winks*

Slowly I start to believe Vivien more and more when she said 2022 is cursed and we just should skip the rest of it… After catching Covid the 3rd time I started to get better again when my the kids of my school gifted me some kind of weird flu – another week down. Now last weekend It felt like it would be over and agreed to have lunch with my mom. I said I will prepare everything and we will come down to eat, so she doesn’t have to get up all the stairs (we live in one house but 2 different apartments). So we prepared everything and already were on our way down. I still felt a little wonky so the second half of the stairs, my partner decided to take the potatoes and the meat off my hands which I was carrying in a pot. When he had everything, I thought I could get down a little faster and … DANG… I fell down the second half of the stairs. Right knee, left shoulder and left wrist did hurt like hell and parts of the hand already were dark red, a few days later dark blue. My  knee was the worst as I could not walk anymore kinda instantly – Another half week on the couch and not really able to sit or move.. bye bye Halloween *sighs*

So today is the first day I was able to get up again and limp on my own through the apartment to my computer and sit down to work a little bit.

So you will have to stick with some more creepy, spooky pictures for a while I guess, as I prepared quite a few for Halloween *giggles* – But then, most of you are anyway used to my dark side and the fact that the dark season for me doesn’t end with Halloween anyway :p

So belated Happy Halloween!

Mother of Autumn

Made for the AttentionSL Magazine October 2022 // https://indd.adobe.com/view/4e274a38-1262-47d1-9f49-1c26ce8a0e62

Autumn’s Mother Heart

And there Autumn met me
with the loveliest of winds;
but a heart blown asunder
as her leaves would fall again.

She mourned like a mother
who may lose her only child.
So I looked past grand color,
to see grief in her raw wild.

The moon rose like a wizened soul,
as I swam into Autumn’s stream,
a whirlwind of warm memories
and soon-stolen wishes and dreams.

I spoke kind words that did little
to ease her deep growing beast.
She even trembled with vestiges
of leaf prints near her knees.

And so, I did the only thing
a human could truly do.
I bowed with grace before her,
and kept vigil through and through.

With bravery, Autumn finally let go . . .
as our tears shook and echoed
into winter’s bleary woe.

Time moved on as it has the want and will,
past winter, spring, and summer still;
and again, I greeted Autumn.

She smiled when she saw me,
and bowed to me with grace;
the human that saw fit to stay
in grief’s lonely darkened space.

I walked closer to divine Autumn,
the wisest mother of them all,
to notice lines and creases softer,
at peace with her destined fall.

Once more, sweet leaves moved from her
and, yes, she blustered and cried.
But, in the end, she whispered to me,
Love branches immortal, never to die.

Wicca’s Originals @ NEO Japan // September 2022

Wicca’s Originals @ NEO Japan // September 24th – October 16th

While many of Wicca’s Originals eye augments are more general use, the “Bullseye” visual augmentation serves a more specialized purpose.

If you’re looking for that extra edge, this is it. This augment taps into not only your optical nerves, but also connects to nerve signals connected to your arms and hands, and uses that extra information to offer the wearer enhanced predictive aiming.

Perfect for snipers or practicioners of “gun fu”, hitting your target, even at range, is as simple as pointing where the Bullseye indicates and squeezing the trigger. Can be fed IFF (identification of friend or foe) data to prioritize and exclude targets, to reduce decision making in the heat of a firefight.

The Bullseye mod comes in clean and worn variations, with 10 color and metal options, and is a unisex, unrigged augment capable of fitting on any head.

Location: NEO Japan

Wicca’s Originals @ Engine Room // September 20th – October 20th

Wicca’s Originals has performed another medical miracle.

Named after the infamous sky pirate, Captain Bellamy Barclay, these arm and hand prosthetics gave them a renewed chance at continuing their dominance of the skyways after a tragic accident in the boiler room left them without an arm.

Powered with the technology available to Barclay at the time, these arms self-contain a pressurized gas chamber capable of operating for 48 hours without refueling under normal use. However, if one needs to get into a bar brawl or a particularly intense swordfight, the valve can be loosened to enhance the power behind each swing.

The three fingers are uniquely articulated to compensate for the lack of a thumb as best they can, and the entire apparatus is padded and built to withstand rugged use.

Whatever your own reason for needing a new kind of arm is, Wicca’s Originals has you covered.

Can be worn with Maitreya, Reborn, Legacy (F and M), Jake, and Gianni bodies, and comes with 10 color options for padding as well as metals.

“Lost in Time, and lost in Space… and Meaning.”

“And crawling on the planet’s face,
some insects called the human race.
Lost in time, and lost in space.
And meaning.”

[- Richard O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Show -]

Again I am coming to you with a wonderful memory of an amazing evening. A few days ago my sweet sister Vivien offered me to be part of one of her amazing, creative art shots. She asked me if I would have the new doll modifications from Salt & Pepper – certainly I do! She had built a wonderful set and had planned the shot for 5 people. It looked amazing and on her Flickr (HERE) you can see her amazing artwork of that picture. I tried to grab a shot too but it was one of those days where nothing wanted to razz and the more people you have the harder it goes. So I asked her if she would be ok with having  another shoot when she was done with just us 2 and lightly different poses. She said yes and did let me use the set she built too – Thank you for that Sis ♥♥♥.

It is so much fun to just do what you feel not running after deadlines only and it always feels like a little holiday for me when we work on some pictures together.

The whole theme looked very fragile and sweet and that is really easy for me as I am usually the dark and deep color lover, but it felt like a cool challenge and something new 😉

Thank you for another wonderful evening and a great time Sis ♥♥♥. If you want to know about her style.. just poke her 😉

Above you can see the try of my version… new but interesting, I hope you like it nevertheless!

Tired…

So you know that feeling if you just cannot get up and could sleep the whole day… I have no clue what that is but since a few days, as soon as I wake ip, I am already tired again and could fall asleep right away 🙁

I mean I have holidays and I tried that for 2 days now, to just sleep when I feel tired, but that seems not to be the right way either, as I get headaches and my back starts hurting as I am not used to lay or sit that much usually. My mind does not seem to like that as well as I feel weird and unproductive. I need to think about something different I guess…

But that gave me the idea of the “Tired Bee” for my pictures – even if it is a futuristic one 😉

Anyway… today I come to you with some news fro A&Y released at the Midnight Order event – you still have 2 days to ge there and see all the goodies and I promise it is really worth it 😉

The amazing “Cybergothic Corset” made by A&Y comes for Maitreya and Legacy body sizes. It does have a huge HUD where you can customize all kind of different parts of the corset. Th coast has a perfect length to fit pants or any other bottom part to it – I did use the “Phex” pants as well made by A&Y as I love when the fabric, colors and materials go together perfectly.

It is always hard to find really cool Cyber hair but at A&Y you get a very good selection. The new “Orbital Babe” hairstyle is just one example of the awesome and creative ideas. It dies come with the same kind of huge HUD as A&Y does provide it for all their designs. Just go there and take a look for yourself, I promise you you won’t be disappointed 😉

The arms and legs were designed by {PSYCHO:Byts}, one my favorite stores for the unusual and freaky stuff. I love her imagination and how she turns them into her creations. The limbs come with color HUDs too and you can recolor many different parts.

If you are looking for extravagant makeup and eyeshadows you should take a look at Rubedo. She creates wonderful color packs in all kind of shades. Usually she does release her designs for BoM and LeL. EvoX BoM in 2 different packs. Today I chose the “haven” style. What is cool with that pack, Foxy included a full version and a gentle one. The gentle one is a little bit more subtile (lighter) than then full, but both have beautiful colors with them.

I hope you had fun with my little “Tired Bee” and I will hurry to showcase you a little more from the Midnight Order event soon, so that you can grab all the stuff before the event ends 😉
