Ion – Downtown

ion - downtown

Like all kids, Ion doesn’t always do what he’s supposed to. He loves to roam around and enter parts of town in which a rich boy isn’t exactly safe. The “cool” kids at school talked him into exploring some of the derelict buildings there. Ion sure doesn’t like to be called a coward and looks ready for adventure.

His outfit is a bit of a mix between old and new. Old favourites – like the collar. And new items, like the skinny pants from Ispachi, which replaced the texture layer jeans I previously used for the outfit. Both the shoes and hoodie were among the first mesh items I ever bought, and I still like them a lot.

The hair is modified – I bought it both in black and platinum and replaced some of the black strands around the front with platinum ones, which I tinted red. I’ve done pretty much the same (minus the red tint) with Leon’s hair, too. Depending on the hairstyle, it’s quite a bit of work, but I’m happy the result in both cases.

Today’s look:

hair: Dura (mod)
hoodie: Dirty Lynx
pants: Ispachi (The Liasion Collaborative)
shoes: Super Kingodm
collar: The GL
Pose: Oracul (from AO)

Corvus – New Cat in Town

corvus - new cat in town

A couple days ago, I picked up a mesh photo studio from Abranimations. Usually, my pictures are created on the fly, without a static studio setup. But since it was free (it no longer is), I thought I’d gave this a try and here’s the result. Now, I don’t do item reviews or anything, but the studio is sure fun to play around with!

The picture also shows, Corv can pull off colourful outfits just as well as his usual monochromatic looks.

Allow me to introduce… Marten Zann

marten zann

Name: Marten Zann
Age: 23
Born: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Occupation: violinist

Today, I’d like to introduce Marten, an aspiring violin virtuoso from Amsterdam. Despite his young age, Marten is a widower.

He met Annie, the love of his life, in music school when they were still teenagers. As soon as Annie turned 18, they got married and moved together, but their luck only lasted two short years before Annie became severely ill and passed within weeks.

If you ever get to meet Marten, you will find him very reserved, maybe he won’t even talk to you. Please don’t take it personally. He does try to carry on, but his only comfort is his music.

The Music of Marten Zann

OOC Information:

I have debated for a while whether to introduce Marten as a character. His tragic story sure isn’t for everyone – and isn’t meant to be. Annie never existed as a character, though, she is just part of his tale.
On the other hand, and the reason why I did introduce him here, is the fact I love to use him as a model. Maybe I am the only one to see the pain in his eyes, but knowing about him, his story, helps me create a certain mood for some photos. I am not sure if that makes sense to anyone else, but that’s the way I tick.
Marten’s name is inspired by the main character of my favourite webcomic, Questionable Content, and the short story The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft. The story is about a voiceless violinist who keeps away demons with his music.

Marten’s basic looks:

shape: my own
skin: Fruk
hair: Sadistic Hacker
eyes: TheAbyss
beard: VCD
scar: Fruk
hands: Vika Design
