A Dying Machine

Look at you now you’re a dying machine
Cold and disfigured,
Corrupted, Diseased
Again, you’ve come back,
Oh I’ll die in this place
Mechanical cradle, synthetic embrace
You’re a dying machine
Tremonti – A Dying Machine

A Dying Machine

Man have I been waiting for the right idea to come along to use this song. Finally happened. I recently started watching the show Into The Badlands, yea I know I’m about 2 years behind or what not. It didn’t take very long to get into and I’m damn glad I did. After watching the entire first season I got the idea to tie it into the Tremonti song, thus ending up with this shot.

I wanted to use the cybernetic stuff to really play off of the song but beyond that it was random chance of where it would go. Then Into The Badlands happened. I really liked the idea of the dystopian martial arts vibe going on with the different groups. I was going to have my co-star in it either way, but after seeing the character Tilda in the show, I leaned more her direction look wise. She’s a bit of an assassin, really good with martial arts and all that goes along with that. Granted she’s not wearing Bakaboo in the show, but hey she can’t be perfect. I couldn’t not use that dress. I mean look at it, it stood out to me immediately. The patterns, the coloring, it just pops. Hats off to you Mr. Blackthorne. Keep knocking it out of the park.

I put the dress together with some badass new boots from Candy Doll that you can still snag at Collabor88 until May 6th. I remember first seeing them and saying to Brennan, “Why can’t we get more things like this?” I don’t mean thigh high boots of course, just the detail and quality in them, beautifully done. Male designers, or designers in general, if you’re reading this, we -WILL- buy nice things I promise. I topped it off with some fresh offerings from the latest round of Uber. It’s themed for Bikers this month and that couldn’t have been better timed. I added the Motor Gloves from RealEvil Industries to give her a bit more attitude. They’re amazingly made and come with a hud to change the colors of the leather and metals, as well as hiding various parts to pull off the look you want. Finally I grabbed the newest Truth hair style Panny. It was perfect right away as it’s quite similar to the hair that Tilda has in the show. ❤

Getting Lucky right for the shot was way easier. A little bit of hiding body parts and adding in the great cybernetic augments from NeurolaB Inc. I had to adapt the NK1 Cybernetic arms to make a leg, but that wasn’t all that difficult and worked out well in the end. I’ve always loved the work Ono does and this is no exception. The rest of me is pretty much your standard everyday me. I figured no reason to go overboard.

If you’re curious about Into The Badlands you can find seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix. I highly recommend giving it a shot. I knew nothing about it until I saw a commercial for Season 3 on AMC and now I love it. Until next time!
