When I heard that cStar was designing a Marilyn-skin I got super excited and soon as the demo was available in the mainstore I scooted up there to grab one and designed a Marilyn-shape to use in my photos with it right away. I am a big Marilyn-fan and thoroughly enjoyed creating several looks from different stages in her life but avoiding the most cliché-Marilyn-imitations. And what great coincidence Vintage Fair is going on with tons of new releases fit for a moviestar’s wardrobe. In The Starlet-photo no 1 from left is portraying the rising star Marilyn, the way she looked in the movie “Bus Stop” – fresh out of cheesecake modelling. The dress is a new release from 1 Hundred (Vintage Fair), in photo no 2 is Marilyn the way she looked when she attended the Lee Strasbourg academy of acting in New York – glasses and casual yet trendy clothes: stripy jumper from Coco (old item) and simple black pencilskirt from Faster Pussycat. “The Diva” is the fullblown moviestar, Marilyn at the top of her carreer adored and copied by the masses – i chose a new red sequin mesh dress from CIA (Vintage Fair) and diamonds from laGyo. Then there is “The Goddess” – Marilyn singing for the president – sporting “Lily” a sexy halterneck dress in gold – a new release from Baiastice (Vintage Fair). In “The Mistfits” Marilyn was cast in casual denim and plaid shirts, I chose a jacket from my inventory from Aoharu and teamed it with one of my own new releases – “Pinup Pants” from Faster Pussycat (Vintage Fair). Below is inspired by what has become known as Marilyn’s “Last Sitting” – a photoshoot she did with photographer Bert Stein commissioned by VOGUE Magazine – wearing nothing but her birthday suit, a selection of scarves and some drops of her favoured perfume Chanel No.5. The shoot took place over three daily sessions in late June 1962, just six weeks before she died. I hope this makes a nice tribute to both a legend – and a lovely new cStar skin.
cStar’s “Marilyn” is available now at Fashion Voodoo. It is like so many of cStar’s skins a limited edition skin and the pack also includes a Marilyn shape – only 2 restocks are available. There are 18 different tones to pick from and I am wearing the light tone for my photos. A fatpack option will only be available for the duration of the Fashion Voodoo event and it’s also 50% off. This skin could possibly be a fashionista’s collectible so hurry up and get it now – LM is available in the demo at cStar HQ.
Designer Honey Bender of Faster Pussycat is purring out the sexy new releases. Shelia is a sultry hot addition as the summer sun sets into the autumn leaves. A must have for any simmering summer night this mini dress comes complete with a wrapped guaze style hat/head dress.

If you like your fashion with an edge… then read on because I have some fabulous releases to show from the new Faster Pussycat collection by Honey Bender.
Black Magic can be worn as a figure hugging body suit to show off those gorgeous long legs….. Which of course we all have in SL don’t we?? ….. Or by simply adding a flouncy tutu skirt you can create a second look. Two of my favourite things are the texture work on the bodice and I love! love ! love! those sculpted shoulders, which for me gives this outfit great fashion attitude.
I chose to wear Tower Ankle Boots… take a peek below to see these unique boots in more detail.
Raven is a similarly designed to Black Magic.. which can also be worn as a slinky body suit or as skirted outfit. What makes Raven beautifully unique is the texture work and accessories. The top is semi opaque mesh with patterns of sequin colours perfectly placed all over. Black raven feathers are arranged at the neck and attached to a pearl beaded Aztek collar to create a stunning look.
Faster Pussycats Warrior Boots in pink are the perfect match and pick out the coloured sequins in the top.. see pic below for a close up.
The third outfit is my personal favourite… I love everything about Zebra Mini. Gorgeous animal print definitely gets this outfit noticed. Great belt detail, cuffs and sculpted shoulder accessories add a fashion edge. My footwear choice are these great Tower Ankle Boots, for a more feminine touch You Give Me Fever shoes would be just perfect. This short and leggy mini with a deep v cut oozes confidence and fashion attitude ….. Did I say that I love this outfit!!!
Fabulous outfits need fabulous shoes and Faster Pussycat has just the pair to add that finishing footwear flourish. Poosykat Littleboots waved her magic designer wand and created Tower Ankle Boots, You Give me Fever Shoes, Aztek Warrior Boots to choose from.

Do not threaten me with the fire of your body my love
for I am a man borne of fire and shall die of fire
I eat fire, I bathe in fire, I swim in the deepest part of fire.
If you wear the “Union Jack” by PoosyKat LittleBoots of Faster Pussycat….. you might not be a man borne of fire, but you will look rather smoking hot.
The cinnamon red sculpted waistcoat is fully adjustable so you can get just the right fit. Under it, the Leopard print tee with its guitarist decal is a very unique and distinctive piece of clothing. Matched up with the flag leather pants, you look every inch the rebel.
