The Night Troops 2: Wisdom of the Ancients

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Killing the boy king Tutankhamun was only a lesser of Horemheb's many crimes in the pursuit of ultimate power. He also burned down the Library of Alexandria. Why? Because brilliant Greek engineers had invented steam-powered engines and he wanted this amazing technology for himself. Under his leadership, the underworld flourished as they created more and more wondrous steam-powered inventions. Horemheb was the undisputed God King of the vampires for over 3 thousand years. 

In this post I'm showing some things you can pick up at Clockwork Spiral, but also I want to show a peak at FATEwear's new fall line for men. I love this coat. It comes in long and short, and you can wear a turtle neck or shirt and tie below it. The fatpack versions are nice with texture change hud for jacket, shirt, and tie. The fur stole is by Junbug. I picked it up at  the Mystery Gacha and it worked perfectly on me! Try to score one in the yard sales if you missed it. The Andrew hair is a nice romantic style for guys by Tableau Vivant. Now let's talk about the Spiral! How about those Spatz! I love them! I have wanted boots like this for some time. I don't care if they are for girls, I wore them anyway. They came so, so close to working for the guys, just need little bigger leather top and new alpha. I could have worn a black leather top and you would not notice the poke, but I liked the orange better and retouched out the poke. Please, if you try the demo and like these boots, I recommend you write Refined Wild to request a male version of the SpatSmasher. They are really cool. Speaking of cool, these Plasma Distorter Guns! Aren't the great? They are another fun toy by Souzou Eien. The are props but also mod if you want to add your weapon script. The Derby hat and googles are part of the Immateria Arcane Finery outfit for men.

STORYLINE: Horemheb's long suffering assistant Isabelle Stryker was disheartened by the news of Maximilian's betrayal. When she told the boss the bad news, he flew into a rage. Humans were below vampires! It was outrageous Maximilian was cutting deals with them! But not to be out maneuvered, Horemheb quickly cut a deal of this own with the other side. To make sure his new friends would win the war, he offered the Wisdom of the Ancients. It was no concern to him what the lowly creatures would do with it, humans were food. Never the less, they were delighted with the gift. New and powerful weapons would be created. To honor him, they redubbed him "Kaiser Kruel," for his wrath was a terrible thing indeed.

The Night Troops 2: Coup d'etat

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: As the world hurled towards war, even the winds of change reached Vampire Society. Nobel Elder Maximilian Spyder plotted to overthrow his rival Horemheb. It was long past time to lead his people out of darkness. It took many hours at the negotiation table, but he finally signed a secret pack with the desperate Winston Churchill. The Army of the Night would protect England from a ground invasion, and the vanguard of the Night Troops would take out the Führer himself. In exchange, the Vampire Nation would be recognized as a sovereign entity by all Allied Nations. At last, they would have their own country. It was a dream about to be realized, and they would call their new capital city Cursed.

Today is my birthday, gang! Woo! I will tell you a secret, I don't watch much television but when I do it's usually World War 2 stuff. Recently I listened to Cursed Event's Axi Kurmin give a lecture on DieselPunk style. I was drooling so hard, and feeling inspired. I was jumping up and down when Cursed Event's Lokii Violet made the Clockwork Spiral sim DieselPunk. Each year this event steps up it game and challenges designers and shoppers to think outside of the box. A Clockwork Spiral also covers SteamPunk, and Dark Victorian. Money raised goes to the National Kidney Foundation. You can read more about the event, and get a sim map here: A Clockwork Spiral blog Event runs until Oct 1st.

DieselPunk is a fantasy military style with elements of both world wars. It invents fanciful new machines. The Train Tank behind me by Kalopsia is a good example, a combination of tank and train. I love this TankTrain! I wear it like a pet! People give me compliments on it, well from those that I didn't flatten with it. lol You can pick it up at Uber. My other toy is the Souzou Eien Hand Gun available at a Clockwork Spiral. It comes with left and right hands. You can edit the size and tint it. Great fantasy weapon. The jacket and pants I am wearing are a new release WASD by VRSION. It has the theme of Little Red Ridding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, however this coat fits perfectly for an American military uniform with a vampire twist. It's fitted mesh too. The officer cap is by Death Row. The front plate can texture change a message, I picked a simple skull and cross bones. The black and red trimmed tunic is by Songbird at Clockwork Spiral. The donation item includes several colors. The Epia armband is something I have blogged a lot on the Cursed storylines. It's just so handy, I love being able to upload my own logo to it or tint it's colors.

STORYLINE: Many days passed as the Night Troops waited anxiously in their underground bunkers. At any moment they could get the signal to invade. To help rally the troops, Spyder's secret agent, vampire bombshell Lady Bug, posed provocatively on her big achievement, -- stealing the plans to the TrainTank.

Aayra returns to BishieStyleSL. You can see her post for the Clockwork Spiral here. I'm playing a robot for her, it's brilliant Fallen God's Oscar Avatar. She has a limited time to blog, but was a good sport to work with me on a style for this post and then allow me to log her account to photograph. I think the results are pretty cool. These boots, guys look how badass they are. House of Rain made DieselPunk boots with Art Deco boot jewelry Bats on them! They come in several colors so don't miss these! The boots are unisex, but I recommend smaller sized guys for them. Her a retro pinup hairdo is Bliensen + MaiTai's Diesel Hair. It comes in 3 different styles. It from last year, but I always loved it and wanted to blog it. I'm happy I got to show it this year. Also by Bliensen + MaiTai are the cute Aeropleustic Ladybug earrings, brooch, and ring. The Echelon Jacket is a perfect military vamp style by Senzafine. The chocker with key is by The Little Bat. ...Okay, you guys run go play at the Spiral!  I got some birthday cake to eat.

Surfing with the Alien

(click to enlarge)
Back at the beginning of August, I was invited by Style Kingdom's editor Dougie Boxen to take part in their Vol. 9 Challenge: Heroes and Villains. Entrants were to choose a comic book hero and create two looks: A hero outfit and an off duty look. Can you guess what I picked? lol I thought a long time about who would I portray. Which one spoke to me? Which inspired the most possibilities? Because this is a fashion magazine and a style challenge, I had the idea to develop two completely re-imagined looks using readily available items in SL. My goals in the style were: Elegant, Noble, Futuristic, ... and oh yeah, monotone colors white, grey, and black. After I sent my style shot in, and waited nervously for the results, it turned out I was one of two people who won the challenge! Woot! I feel like I just joined the Major Leagues. After that was the real photoshoot for each outfit, and this was much more time intensive that my normal blog shots because of the demands of the magazine format. It was a really cool challenge and I enjoyed it. Thanks to Dougie for inviting me. The final issue had a switch in concept from Heroes to Everyday SL. I admit, I'm curious about the other hero shots, I want see! But it was fun to go through the issue with a friend, and see if we could recognize any the heroes hiding below their secret identities. lol. I also enjoyed seeing all these badass looking ladies and sexy secretaries. Overall, great issue with beautiful pictures.  Check it out: Style Kingdom vol.9  If you're looking for me, my name got a mention on the cover and you can find my picture on page 8/9.  The pictures I'm showing in this post aren't in the issue, but I thought it would be cool to share my Hero image above, and two of my unretouched captures that I submitted for the challenge.

A few details about the the outfit above. Almost all the designers I chose from were at the FutureWave event for the simple reason that these stores are making original mesh design. I'm delighted that they got a spot in a more mainstream fashion magazine. Scifi original content makers need some loves too. The Helmet is by Blue Falcon Industries. You can switch the face shield between many different textures, I liked the white bright cyber one for my shot here. The system layers bodysuit is also by Blue Falcon Industries and comes with both white and black versions. The arm warmers by Razor come with a default hands fit and a Slink. (love that!) The texture hud will let you switch around the colors and textures. Because I really don't like sharp end between a system layer bodysuit and the neck, I added the Cyber Neck Corset by FK!Designs. Over the top is the Konvert Turtle Neck by VRSION. The boots are by A&Y Cyber Bunker. They used to be only for the girls, but no more! Yes you can get these in rigged fitted mesh for the guys! The hud that comes with it will let you play and switch around the colors too. Very nice. On the hands, I used the latex glove applier by Adam n Eve,

The full outfit for the image above you can see in the  Style Kingdom vol.9 issue. The Unsung top, vest, sleeves all work together seamlessly and have a very cool unique look. The pants by VRSION came included with the Konvert Male Boots. The folds between Unsung and VRSION work really nicely together. The Adventure Boots by Rab Labs are fitted mesh, so its simple matter to edit the shape and get the boots to fit over the pants. Love that!  The animating Citadel Eyes are By Snow. They echo wonderfully with the helmet. All the colors are changeable too.  The Nathan 14 skin texture is one of my favorites by Tableau Vivant. It has a wonderful silvery shimmer to it. truly unique. The fun hoverboard is a raffle prize from BareRose. You wear it and it will trigger a hovering animation. It's still available in the raffle if you want to camp out and win it.

The Cuffs are by Heathenesque and I used the x,y,z script includes to scale them up for a nice fit and they cover any seams.  And now a sneak peek at cool things to come in the next round of Creation.Jp, -- three new piercing sets by Haus of Darcy.

Campus Royal

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: If he had his way, he would stay in his posh royal bed, sipping blood wine, instead of braving the daylight, fangirls, and pompous professors who have no respect for the crown. It was dull. However, he rather enjoyed strolls in the shadow of the cathedral. No one bothered him there. He wasn't exactly sure why. The rumors the old place was haunted couldn't possibly be true, could it?

Did you pick up this awesome Fratboy suit by Swagga at 24 Squared? No? You better run! This sweet schoolboy outfit is a Limited Edition! Once its sold out, it's gone for good. Run Run, 24 closes tonight. There is a Light and Dark version. It comes with jacket and shirt, or just shirt, tie, and pants. It includes a texture change hud for the shirt color, tie, and belt. For the princely style is the new King hair by Ayashi. You can pick up at the Kings & Queen event. It comes with a materials enabled crown, and also a separate crown you can wear with any hair. The crown is mod so you can tint it. The beautifully crafted satchel is by David Heather. The bags come in either hippo or puppy, and has many different leather texture options. The bag comes rigged, non rigged, and has a pose trigger. The Wingtip shoes by Deco I love and they often come in handy. I am really loving the Echo skin by Tableau Vivant. If you missed it on sale, don't worry you can find it on the 2nd floor of the Tableau Vivant mainstore.

Her hair is cute braided updo with bow by Sweet Things. You can pick it up at the Kings and Queens fair. While you are there, drop by Dollle's for the this interesting umbrella-like Farthingale dress. Her Ballerina ribbons are by Bacio, stockings by Cannibelle. The Puppeteer pose is one she won at the WetCat gacha.

Fantastic gift! Thank you!  The Open Raven Tomb and the Dearly Departed grave series are all new releases by Noctis. You have edit permissions so you can move things around if you need. The tomb comes with poses, lighting, and creepy ground fog. I love Noctis so much, the textures are so nice and create perfect ambience. Adding to the scene, is the Contraption Dulci'matic from the current round of The Arcade. I love these music boxes too. Next to it is the Sess Tester game by Theosophy at The Arcade.  Behind it, is the game Whack-a-Noob by Weather or Not and I'm happy to report they have returned to SecondLife!

Dark Circus 2: The Ringmaster

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The vampire leader of the Dark Circus was part Necromancer, part Clown, but all Master of Ceremonies. "Ladies and gentlemen, boils and ghouls, welcome to The Greatest Show Unearthed!"

All fans of Elegant Gothic Lolita and Aristocrat have a treat this round at The Arcade by Remarkable Oblivion, -- the Melancholy set! You can collect the hat, collar, crinoline, garter, and wrist cuffs in black, white, and red versions. I could not resist stylizing this up for the guys. I used all the infernal pieces from the set except for the wrist cuffs. The "leg cage" was a bit daring, but I think turned out pretty cool. (see below)   Pictured above is the new Haus of Darcy piercing and paint set Ri Fhaolchu (Wolf King) and Banríon Faolchú (Wolf Queen) exclusives to We <3 Role Play, (exclusive meaning once September ends, they're gone never to be sold again!) For my image, I used the two bonus items from the Royal Deluxe fatpack: the bonus Blood Drop color piercings, and the bonus liquid Royal Eyeshadow. The Royal Deluxe fatpack includes all 4 metal colors male and female piercing sets plus the bonus Blood Drop, and Wolf King and Queen facepaints including the bonus Royal eyeshadow. Royal Deluxe fatpack is limited to only 200 copies.   On the lips is Ink Spit lip stripe by Forsaken. This is a really nice thin sharp lip stripe and it comes with a faded option and a handy tintable version like I used above to make the stripe red.

On Him, The Ring Master:
Collar: Remarkable Oblivion Melancholy Collar Inferno RARE, gacha [mesh](The Arcade)(75L)
Hat: Remarkable Oblivion Melancholy TopHat Inferno, gacha [mesh](The Arcade)(75L)

Another fantastic goodie you will not want to miss is the Twisted Hunt items from Souzou Eien. The Gothbrella shown above is one of three styles you can win at the Twisted gacha. Each umbrella comes with 7 static poses, and one hold pose that is AO compatible. The rares come with a texture change hud for new colors on the fabric, ribbons, beads, metals, and hand grip. Try to find the allusive Twisted hunt object, because inside is the fantastic mesh prop, the Scrying Ruins. It's mod too, so you can change the color of the water bowl like I did, or tint the glowing crystals. For my stylizing, I really love this combination of the ::K:: Buttoned Jodhpurs with the Lassitude & Ennui Wanderlust boots, and BOOM Sixty-Two Jacket.

Shop til you Drop - FATEwear 50% sale

(click to enlarge)

FATEwear is having a End of Summer 50% off sale!  All items on the island, not just a few items. Does that include FATEplay? Why, yes it does! Goodies for girls and guys! Hurry over and reel in the deals. Sale ends September 10th.

Pictured above are the FATEwear Grayon shorts and Gene shirt. The shirt has an anchor pattern, and the shorts have an anchor on the back pockets. The shirt comes in tucked and untucked styles. All the bags around me are actually the boxes you open to get your FATEwear goodies. I included two FATEplay action figure boxes too. The Aidoru hairstyle by Tableau Vivant on sale at District 5. It comes with a face bandage so you can cosplay Japanese Rock Star if you want. The Classic Vampire Sunglasses by Goth1c0 were at the OMGgacha and you can play it now at the mainstore. The shades remind of me of the ones Gary Oldman wore in the movie Dracula. Sweet. The cuffs are Mandala and I wear them often, and by often I mean almost always. For the summer I am bringing back the CheerNo Kenm but this summer I used only the legs and feet and Slink for the hands. The Tired Soul sandals by BOOM are Slink Sandals for girls and guys, they were in past Collabo88 round and comfortable for shopping in. Okay, enough talk. Get Shopping!
