Caira [Latex Edition] – NEW @ Wicca’s Wardrobe

Previously posted by Wicca Merlin at Wicca Merlin.

Lately I had a long talk with a close friend of mine about latex on fashion runways.

In the end we both agreed that latex can be a very fashionable fabric for clothing and accessories and so the idea of the “Caira” Latex Edition was born.

I know from various talks with other SL models, that many feel uncomphortable with wearing latex or think that latex just belong to others peoples bedrooms.

I never understood that because if you look at RL runways the high fashion designers used latex and vinyl for years. It all always depends on the way of how the latex is used and as well about the presentation.

To me latex always was something that had a very cool look to many different designs. Sometimes you saw very casual clothing shapes totally changed in their attitude with just being made of latex.

When we made the new “Caira” outfit for the store, we first had a Leather Edition, but we wanted to try how it would look in latex or vinyl as well and so we gave it a try. I have to say latex is one of the hardest materials you can try in SL probably as all the shine and lights are not really easy to do.

If you ever saw a latex clothing piece in RL, it basically just has a surface that is very clean, glossy and sleek with nearly no fabric structure. So everything what makes the look of latex is the light of the surrounding, that gets reflected by the clothing piece. That means it never will have the shadows and lights on the same spot, basically they change with every move.

Now try to make some permanent high lights for SL, which donot look like you wouldhave painted on someones body with a wide brush of white wall paint :p

It took some time until we all were satisfied with our version of a latex looking “Caira” but the result now really looks good and I love to wear it myself a lot. Especially becasue iam allergic to latex in RL and can’t do it there at all without getting bad pimples and itchy spots all over my skin *giggles*

In the end I guess everyone needs to decide on their own, if they wanna wear latex or vinyl or not, but I would not ban it from the runways or out of fashion blogs in general 😉 To me they are refreshing and extraordiary plus sometimes.

I had fun doing those pictures, giving them an art touch with different lightnings and crops 😉

Can Latex and Vinyl be Fashion? – Yes they can!

Sometimes you just sit there and stare at your inventory, not knowing what you wanna do… You just see a wall of things you wanna blog and you cannot make up your mind what you should do first. I usually start then first with some inventory sorting and cleaning, what I anyways do way to occasionally…

Sometimes you get lucky and find an inspiration while you are sorting, sometimes you just have to put on several things until feels like “DingDingDing” and you know exactly what you wanna do 😉

It wasnt that bad this time, as I did know I want to showcase one of the latest releases of [sys] from the Black Fair and the mega cool Elephant seat from 22769 from the actual We <3 RP event.

 Now, the big question was how to bring those 2 together in a cool way, as I wanted to combine the latex look of the “Hellia” dress with the light shining texture of the “Elephant Loveseat”.

When I looked through my inventory to see what more I could use for my scenery, I came across the “Chameleon Bag” from Boutique #187, which i just put on the sofa, as I did not yet know what kind of poses I wanna use. Furthermore I found a shelf, that I got last year at the On9 event from six o’clock and some wall art from 22769.

The scenery became more and more monochrome and modern and so I decided to wear the “Overcast” hat from LODE to my styling. It is a long time favourite of mine and while I was fooling around with several poses more and more the idea of the huge hat did grow in my head. Last but not least I added the wrist cuffs of our new “Cathbad Set”, which we made with Wicca’s Wardrobe for the actual round of The Secret affair and some sheer tights from Izzie’s, to feature the gold parts of the “Hellia” outfit a little bit more.

To finish my look I certainly HAD to use my new “Nemesia” angle boots from Glamistry. Since I saw that boots the first time I fell in love with them. I know they are not the newest release from Glamistry but they are one of my personal favorites! They are so versatile! Depending on the color and color combinations they can feature every style from casual to elegant. Today certainly I had to go for black & gold to match the actual look (not to mention that black is my favourite colors anyways :p )

Overall this look might be another example, that latex can be fashionable even if so many still sort it only in the wrong corner… even some of the most popular designers used latex and vinyl for their creations and put it on the runways of our world 😉

Fetish Friday: Latex Bunny

Previously posted at Kirstentacular.

      What is Easter without a Pink Latex Bunny? I made my bunny with a latex lingerie set from Big Beautiful Doll and latex ears from Avanti. I have been watching Big Beautiful Doll for a little while now. They have a growing collection of applier latex lingerie. I thought this set looked like a typical bunny suit shape. Avanti has a lot of latex ears in various colors called Bad Bunneh Ears. They have piercings in them, lol. My mesh bunny tail was made for me by my submissive because I could not find one that looked like a real bunny tail. They were all circle balls of fluff and that is not what a bunny’s tail actually looks like. So he made me this realistic shaped tail and I think its great. Have a Happy, Fetish Easter!

Lingerie: Big Beautiful Doll – Latex Lingerie Kitty – Blush Pink
Ears: .:Avanti:. Bad Bunneh Ears – Pink
Hair: .ploom. Cora – Monotone
Shoes: Glamistry : Parrasana Heels

Satin, Leather or Latex from Flowey

Previously posted at Its Only Fashion.

If you’re like me you’re still mulling about your Valentine’s options in terms of what to wear. I can’t ever decide and end up with more choices than I need.

Whenever I say need in terms of SL clothes I always think of that old saying “Must is not a word for princes.” In my mind it changes to “Need is not a word for fashion bloggers.” Regardless, this new dress from Flowey at Collabor88 should be on your must have list.

Designed with the elegance of a slinky slip dress, this is available in leather, latex or satin textures which allows you to choose the look you’re going for.  It’s perfectly paired with heels from Tetra, which you’ll also find at Collabor88. These are for MID height feet.

Also in the offering this round is a new head from one of my favorites – Genesis Lab. I’m not sure how they make so many heads so fast. This one is a pretty round faced girl. I really like this one a lot. As always the huds are easy and give you several options. I’m not sure if their body appliers are still free at their mainstore but they were – so you should go look if you haven’t picked them up.

And now I’m gonna get out of the studio and go finish my Valentine’s! Happy shopping today girls!

Gidge is Wearing:
Ring: (Yummy) True Fate Ring – Gold – Opal
Head: Genesis_Head_Melissa_2.0 COLLABOR88
Feet: Slink Avatar Enhancement Feet Mid Left V2.0
Slink Avatar Enhancement Feet Mid Right V2.0
Hands: Slink Avatar Enhancement Hands V2.1 – L – Elegant
