Kunoichi s a modern term for a female ninja or practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo).

The term is thought to derive from the names of characters that resemble the three strokes in the kanji character for woman ( onna); said in the order they are written: ku (く) – no (ノ) – ichi (一). Early literary quotes include Enshū Senkuzuke Narabini Hyakuin (遠舟千句附并百韵?) (1680) as well as Maekuzukeshū (前句付集?) (1716), which specifically associates the word with the kanji 女 supporting the etymology. The “くノ一” writing requires the use of one character from each Japanese character set – first hiragana, then katakana, then kanji. While hiragana and kanji can exist in the same word, katakana generally cannot appear in conjunction with the others. There are exceptions to this, for example in “ゴミ箱” and “消しゴム”.

Female ninja are mentioned in Bansenshukai, a 17th-century Japanese book compiling the knowledge of the clans in the Iga and Kōga regions devoted to the training of ninja. According to this document, the primary function of female ninja was espionage, finding legitimate service positions in the households of enemies, to accumulate knowledge by gaining trust or overhearing conversations. One historically accepted example of this is Mochizuki Chiyome, the 16th century noblewoman with ninja roots who was tasked by the warlord Takeda Shingen with recruiting women to create a secret network of a few hundred female spies.

Ninja 5

Sometimes if you just put on one item, you immediately get an idea what you want to do with it… I am sure all of you had that happen at least once. Something like this happened to me when I put on the “Isis” collar and skirt from [sys].

When I put it on, I immediately had the vision of a ninja/asian inspired look. I remembered the awesome “Mei” hair from EMO-tions – that was sold on the south-asia inspired round of On9 – which I decorated with the cool “Albedo Horns” from Ayashi.

To cover my chest, since the feathers of “Isis” collar did not reach down far enough, I used the “Tigress Top” from Apple May Design. As it is a mesh body applier it fit perfectly under the feathers. Certainly a tattoo cannot miss when I style something like this :p This time I wanted something special and so the silver “Genius” tattoo from White Widow was the perfect match. I never made a secret out of it, that White Widow is my favourite tattoo brand… did I? *grins*

Ninja 6

I thought a little bit until I got the idea… but certainly a warrior needs some armor 😉 At least some that looks great for the pictures*giggles*

[LAB737] makes the most amazing armor parts I ever saw. So detailed and as well used looking makes them very realistic and I could not resist to add parts of the “Dragoon” armor to my left arm.

Ninja 2

Now the most complicated to get good pictures – I needed a good Katana and as well cool poses which did not just look like fighting. Certainly I could have sat hours and hours and make me some but then… still the good Katana would be missing since I just had som super old prim ones who kinda looked disgusting for nowadays standard. So I did what I usually do when I am looking for something special… I went to SL Marketplace 🙂

Ninja 4

I found a very little store, with just a few items for sale on MP and instantly fell in love with the “Katana Pose Collection”. A whole set with many variations of 10 different poses and 2 amazing handcrafted Katanas. Even more I was surprised that they were made for a female warrior, so exactly what I wanted. The poses do look more show or performance like than, fighting itself and so they were the perfect animations for the pictures.

Ninja 1

First I tried to build me a photo set, but soon I realized – I do not have the right items nor the knowledge of buildings and sceneries, that would suit the ideas and satisfy the styling. I jumped into the SL search and looked for places with key words like: japanese, warrior, ninja, katana and many more until I found “Kowloon”, a little island, which was empty when I arrived but the buildings and the garden was incredible beautiful. While I was shooting, the sim filled up more and more, but I did not see anyone around me and I became curious. I started to cam around, to spy silently, when I found an arena with a hell of a lot people who had begun a fight. I was so excited to see that, to see them fighting with Katanas and all kind of asian weapons, that I stopped shooting for a bit and just watched without disturbing them. I had so much fun watching them, that I nearly forgot to finish my shooting. It was an amazing afternoon and as well a lot of fun and I enjoyed the trip to a past time, that is totally new to me.

Show me how you Burlesque!

By Wicca Merlin – Wicca Merlin. Visit Show me how you Burlesque! for original post.

Burlesque 4

People love burlesque today because it incorporates all the old-school glamour, satire and highlights the female form – it’s something that many women can actually see themselves doing.
[Baby Doe]

Burlesque 5

TUNES

Burlesque, is a form of performing art that reaches back to at least the 1860s in the US. Presented in cabarets, theaters and some other location, burlesque was mostly presented by women. Colorful and laborious costumes as well as mood appropriate music and dramatic lightning, sometimes even fire breathing  were part of many burlesque shows. The goal was not to totally strip down, more to just take of certain clothing like gloves and stockings, which sometimes spoke louder as a common striptease.

Burlesque lost it’s popularity towards the simple strip in the 1920/30s, but in it was never totally gone and got back some popularity way later with Hollywood productions and several organisations and clubs that try to keep the burlesque feeling and lifestyle alive. It was often called New-Burlesque or Neo-Burlesque and the 90s brought a huge comeback of the whole idea. In 2010 the movie Burlesque,with Christina Aguliera and Cher, this new way of a more modern burlesque feeling was shown in an amazing way. Dita von Teese is probably the most popular burlesque dancer nowadays and with all her productions, performances, products and marketing she is an amazing and valuable asset of the Neo-Burlesque movement.

Burlesque 1

Certainly hat was just a very short information about Burlesque and I could go on for hours to talk more about it as I personally really do like the idea of a burlesque lifestyle, but I will safe you from that and just move on to my todays post 😉

The reason why I came across Burlesque again, was the actual round of the GENRE event. It is the first time that we got invited with wicca’s Wardrobe to be part and then right there the theme Burlesque.. you can imagine how  much I smiled all over when I saw that.

The GENRE event aims for items, that are not more expensive than 100 L$ . We made the amazing “Fleur” boots for the event and set each of the 12 colors for 99 L$ . The idea behind the boots were to give some old-fashioned, victorian themed Burlesque boots a little modern twist in shape and colors 😉

Burlesque 7

When we set up the event I found so many other incredible designs that I could not resist to grab some and do pictures with all of them. The amazing fitting “Versailles Fall” corset with the amazing frills around your hips comes from Honey Bender for ber new original mesh label BENDER. The corset itself is an applier for the mesh body, what underlines every woman’s body shape in a very true way 😉 The beautiful frills that surround the hips come in different sizes to make sure they fit your curves.

Burlesque 2

The lovely accessories, the adorable collar and the awesome realistic cigarette, I found as well at the GENRE event. It was just amazing how all the parts feel together in one without overthinking it too much ;).

For the set I used the entire “Belle Rouge” collection from [noctis] – even that used lingerie which hangs down from the chandlier and lies on the couch and the floor came with the set. The chair I am posing on was made by [BlackTulip] and for the other pictures I used poses from the “Teese Me” set made by {Nantra}. Everything besides the head, body and hair in this post comes from GENRE, so you better hurry to make your way over there and see what else is there. There are many more than the few I was able to use for my post :p

Indian Spirit or Ethnic Hippy?

By Wicca Merlin – Wicca Merlin. Visit Indian Spirit or Ethnic Hippy? for original post.

PurpleMoon 1

Sometimes playing with colors can be so much fun. If it is with designs and creations from designers you adore and respect highly it is even more fun 😉

Today my main focus shall be on the amazing furniture and decor from 22769 and the awesome designs of Poulet Koenkamp from PurpleMoon.

PurpleMoon 6

The new “Wanda” outfit immediately caught my attention after I unpacked it. It is the exact perfect outfit for the hot days at the moment. With the short asymmetric skirt and the amazing ornamented top with these delicate cut outs that awesome outfit pushed me towards a more alternative, ethnic, hippy looking style. That as well brought me on the first idea… to add the “Nazca” hair feathers from Indyra 😉

PurpleMoon 2

When I was looking more through all the goodies I got lately, I stumbled over an amazing tattoo from White Widow. I always adored Julie Hastings for her skills to make such delicate and filigree tattoos, which appear so sharp on all of the bodies, that you can see every tiny, little line and dot. The “Shallows” tattoo was originally designed for the Epiphany event but I am sure you can find this amazing gacha now at the White Widow main store 😉 The awesome glasses are made by Glamistry. They come with a huge HUD to customize many different parts of the glasses – plastic and metals.

PurpleMoon 8

The mega amazing jewelry as well was made by PurpleMoon. The “Imani” set is available at the actual round of Chapter 4. It comes with different color palette HUDs you can choose from. A well you can choose from different versions of the necklace and different combinations or even the full set. The set as well contains awesome earrings which I left out for this post because of the amazing “Loni” hair from Truth, that anyways covers the ears so you would not even see them. To not cover up the wonderful tattoo I needed some very special shoes. I wanted boots, but boots would have covered up too much. So I went with the “Botttlebrush” heels from Empire. With the thin laces they made the perfect compromise of boots and sandals I could find 😉

PurpleMoon 7

For the scenery, I chose various items from 22769. I always adored Manuel and Paco, their genius ideas for all kind of furniture and as well their skills to create those detailed and so realistic looking designs. The super cute sofas are called “Beatle Chair” as the backside of them is made like those very popular cars (I will have another post showing them properly soon). The awesome wall flag, the neat, colored cupboard as well as the flowers and the lamp come from a new gacha machine, which is located at the actual round of the Gacha Garden and the very detailed shisha was part of a great beach set for Indie Teepee. Creating scenes with items from 22769 always is so much fun that I tend to overload the background as so many things would fit so perfect 😉

Lingerie… innocent and delicate the same time ;)

Blacklace - Vivian 1

Again I had a lot of fun by playing with lingerie 😉

Blacklace came out with some stunning news a few ago and today I would like to showcase the new “Vivian” lingerie from Blacklace. It comes in many different colors (always 2 in once pack), but I chose the nude/black version for today. I loved how the innocent nude fabrics going along so well with the delicate lace…

Blacklace - Vivian 3

I really do love the way how the applier lingerie works on the Slink mesh body. It has not a single blurry spot, everything is sharp and detailed shown, you nearly get the impression you can feel the lace under your fingers touching the screen :p

What could fit better to such a wonderful lingerie than beautiful pearls. The wonderful necklace with the incredible back view comes from AvaWay. The “Emmanuelle” necklace can be worn as a complete set or as 6 separate parts. For this post I chose the full set of the necklace. The bracelet I took from the “Taylor” set by Lybra and the super awesome ring was made by Tracei Moore.

Blacklace - Vivian 4

Lingerie should never be over-accessorized in my opinion, so I decided to just add the fantastic “Galla” pumps from Glamistry to complete the look.

Blacklace - Vivian 6

The awesome deco and furniture for the scene, besides the wonderful mannequins, I found at the actual round of On9. I kinda wanted something industrial, used looking for my set today to put out the fantastic lingerie even more 🙂

You may have noticed, a new head on my shoulders… I am testing again, but that will be a new post soon 😉

I only know it’s a matter of time
When you love someone

Now, I know it’s right

From the moment I wake up till deep in the night
There’s nowhere on earth that I’d rather be

And a love that will survive
I’ve been waiting for someone new

Today I was in a very casual mood when I put on my clothes for my GizzA shift.

GizzA Urban 4

The cool “Emma Bib Overall” is one of the latest releases from GizzA. The used optic of the ‘retro washed’ version are totally my thing with the lightly urban but still trendy look. I completed The outfit with the “Lucy Tank” in ‘lemon’, which exactly mirrored my mood today 😉

GizzA Urban 2

Sometimes you do not even feel like you wanna put on makeup and since I wanted a real simple casual look, I went without any makeup. The super awesome hair comes from EMO-tions. Who does not dream of such a long and still great looking braided hairstyle? For today’s look it was just perfect 😉

The accessories are from Elysium and the leather strings kinda repeated the amazing ‘rasta look’ of the hair style and they did not overlay the whole style too much.

And now… time to work!

Summer Trend 2016 – Denim Shorties (featured in Eclipse Magazine July 2016)

By Wicca Merlin – Wicca Merlin. Visit Summer Trend 2016 – Denim Shorties (featured in Eclipse Magazine July 2016) for original post.

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 01

Look #1

When Trouble asked me, if I would like to do a few pics for the upcoming (just released) Eclipse Magazine, I just said yes without even thinking about actual summer trends, as I really do love to take pictures and work with magazines. Then he immediately asked me, what summer trend I would like to go for… I did not look over all the summer trends the past few days, so I jumped to google to be informed before I choose.

While I was looking over all the amazing summer trends something immediately caught my eyes… Denim Shorties! All kind of shorts, mini skirts, used, with fringes and what not… That sounds like fun!

I told Trouble about my idea and he seemed to like it. First I thought this would be easy as I really do like denim in RL and SL, but I shall discover soon it sounded easier that it was in the end…

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 02

Look #2

So first of all, I looked through my inventory what kind of shorts, shorties and mini skirts in denim I would find – hell I had no clue how many non useful things I have when I type ‘denim’ in the search of my inventory…

 Most of my favourite denim things are still layers and I did not wanna use old layer items this time… and the next problem – a usual problem with mesh items – sometimes different mesh parts do not fit over each other.

But after some serious searching, I found a handful denim shorties, which I totally love. Now I just need to style them. Because I was told so often, I always only do extreme styles and mostly dark and gothic looking ones, I wanted to do 5 totally different styles for this little spread in the Eclipse Magazine.

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 03

Look #3

For my first idea – Look number 1 –  I started with the “Booty Shorts” from [M.o.w] together with the “Havana” short and head wrap from [sys], the first look went to a more boho type of style. For the accessories I went with the “Vilma” earrings and the “Sile” necklace from Kunglers paired with the “Wooden Bracelet” from artilleri.

Look number 2 is based on the “Briony Shorts” from Erratic. For that look I was inspired by a picture I saw from a country side advert, which told about the great lake sides in germany 😉 To achieve the summer casual look, I added the “Polly” top from Asia Rae and the amazing summer floppy “Laila” hat made by Zibska. For the shoes I chose the “Tropicana” wedges we made for Wicca’s Wardrobe (Yes Grand, we did that.. once *snickers*) The look I was going for,was something trendy, summer looking and as well something simple and kinda ‘girl next door’ looking.

The 3rd look, I wanted to do something more fashion forward in a hipster or clubbing look. I started off with the “Wendy Denim Skirt” made by GizzA. A super short denim mini skirt. First I added the “Dead Romance” tank from Mon Cheri, a tank I used for various styles already as it is a perfect top to go for many different looks and the sizes are made amazingly with the thought to wear something underneath. The mega trendy “Pulsar” glasses and backpack certainly come from [sys], the home for unusual and futuristic designs 😉 The cool boots I found at Stelloane.

E-Clipse Magazine - Wicca Merlin - Shorties 04

Look #4

For Look number 4 I wanted something that I would wear RL as well. Some loosely casual but trendy and chic. something I would use for shopping or just go to the university or drink a coffee out with some friends. I always liked the ‘college girl’ look even if I am not in that age anymore 😉 The “Boyfriend Jeans Shorts” made by Maitreya, are one of my long time favourites. With their loosely fit they are a great everyday wear. I combined them with the “Liliana Top” from Glam Affair and put on the “Batschkapp” we made as a gift for the Indie Teepee event. Even if I like all 5 looks that might be my personal favourite out of them 😉

My 5th and last look is some more native and maybe gypsy looking. The idea came out of some pictures I saw of american native fashion trends. The denim shorties for this style come from GizzA. The “Loose Denim Short” was a perfect start for the idea I wanted to go for. With the lightly dirty looking fabric and the ripped trims it was just perfect to add a more simple, and light top. The “Julia” top from Asteria perfectly went with the shorts and kinda put them more in the focus. The cool necklace was one of the first original mesh releases from PurpleMoon and the incredible hat and back bag again came from [sys].

It was great fun to explore and try different things for this special spread of denim shorties and I have to admit, I found some goodies in my inventory, which I already forgot that I have them 😉

Lady in Red

I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
Looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you’re wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind

Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, it’s where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I’ll never forget, the way you look tonight

I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I’ve never seen so many people wanna be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, it’s where I wanna be

sys 4

Today I have again a post that fell together just by trying things 😉

Sometimes that is the best way to create looks – unplanned looks I just love it :p

sys 5

First I put on the “Sensa Tank Dress” and immediately fell in love with those huge buckle in the back and the amazing counter parts at the front. Usually this is meant to be a dress but I could not resist to play with it to see what I can come up with :p

After I tried various pants, shorts and skirts, I got stuck on the “Hunter Pants” from Pixicat. With the laced sides and the great sand color, they looked perfect to the “Sensa Tank Dress”. With the pants and the top the whole look took a more heavy casual look and so I added one of my favourite shoes to the outfit – the “Triumph Boots” from [GOS].

sys 3

 The cool arm straps are part of the “In Flames” outfit from Asteria. With the huge buckles they matches so nice to the top with the buckle in the back 😉

Since I am really a short hair cut lover I could not pass the “No.Meaning” hairstyle of the actual round of On9 (July.. today is the last day you can find it there I guess) made by no.match.

sys 7

Now I needed a location to shoot. With this look I felt, that a inworld location would look better than an editorial shot in my studio. My first way lead me to one of the amazing Neva sims. I am sure you all know about those as they are the most awesome sims for photo shoots 😉 If not you really should make your way to one of them. This time it was the Neva River Village. A wonderful sim with a lot of water, bridges and paths and a wonderful urban but modern and trendy look. I love the colors and tones and how everything works together so well for all of the Neva sims anyways what theme they have.
