Funny Bunnies

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt! ~ Lucy Van Pelt

Funny Bunnies

Easter’s coming up and for some it’s and important holiday but for many it heralds the beginning of Spring. With chocolates and Easter egg hunts and bunnies, it’s a lovely holiday, and I have surrounded myself with the newest KittyCatS to celebrate. These kittens were custom made for the Showers & Flowers collection (rain, flowers, sunshine and blue skies) and the Bunny Babies, who wear darling flapbacked pajamas with bunny ears. These will be sold for only a limited time, so get them now! Interspersed are eggshell candles from Cherelle Capra and lovely sparkling art she is selling for the holiday (including one piece that is a group gift.

I dressed all in purple for the holiday, starting with my darling top from Paul Lapointe, which comes in a long and short version, which I wear here, and as usual, includes a texture-change HUD that offers 16 bright and muted textures. I have to note that Paul and Bast’s textures are infinitely better than your run of the mill looks. Paul does all his mesh himself and he does it with exacting attention. The fabric wraps around to a perfect insouciant bow in back. My jeans are from Christel Morane, who is selling these sexy skinny jeans at the 100 Block in several colors. My handbag is GraceHaddington’s newest, and it includes a texture change HUD with 8 colors and an AO that allows you to wear the handbag in several poses without seeing it go through your body. I picked up my shoes from the other day and decided to wear them because Pill Kanto did such a great job!

Funny Bunnies

My fresh look comes from PeachieMuah, who loves to add dimples and ruddiness to her faces to connote a healthful glow and youthfulness. Her skins are doll-like and precious but they still work on my rather longer face. My beautiful eyes are Isabelle Requiem’s featured product at Kustom9. I have been waiting for her to come out with new ones! Finally, my big fluffy hair comes from the master of feathered and fluffy locks, Kavar Cleanslate. I clicked around on his HUDs for quite a while to find this perfect blonde, pink-tinted look and had a good time imagining the possibilities. Hoppy Easter!

Where the Wild Things Are

20 12 2013

Where the Wild Things Are

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you. ~ Isadora Duncan

Where the Wild Things Are

Today I can’t be tamed. Start with a top from LeeZu Baxter, a system top done in Leezu’s magnificent artistry with ruffles at the bottom, little buttons, clipped straps. The old fashioned system piece, when done well, is still a wonderful avatar look and Leezu is one of the few that has the skill to pull it off. I pair it with Ivey Deschanel’s gift from the KittyCats Advent Calendar—a set of wild mesh pants with animal skin on the cuff. She includes four pairs in the gift—this is one of them. It’s a perfect gift for wild cats.

Where the Wild Things Are

Aida Ewing recently released the Kaelyn skin, which I have enjoyed wearing in the India tone. Some of the makeups are bold and some are subtle. This one is in between. AvaGardner Kungler offers this chic necklace based on organic shapes and probably real life jewelry. I love how Ava experiments with her jewelry, shapes and colors. Finally, Mina Nakamura put out this great side swept tousled look. I love how it wraps around the neck with pieces going down in back and a lock escaping in the front. It’s so natural and wild.

Cat People

Cat People

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Cat People

Callie invited me to blog the KittyCats Advent Calendar and I gladly accepted though.. well, I am not a cat person entirely. I like cats. We coexist nicely. But I am not enamored of them the way some people are. There are, of course, the “cat ladies,” who are the extreme. But there are also kitty girls, who just like to snuggle their kitties and once in a while dress them up. There are cat women who enjoy the independence of their cats. And then there are the cat men, a particularly charming subset, who expend their nurturing energy on their cats. I know a few of those, all of them tender and kind to a fault.

So I have to be honest, you generally would not be catching me wearing a sweater like this one from Sanura Snowpaw (note the name) except it is one of the generous gifts in the KittyCats Advent Calendar (which she gives away in several colors). Once I put it on, I realized how cozy it is, how it keeps me warm during this very cold winter, and how it has its own delight with a goofy kitty on the front. Worn with cat-patterned wellies from Moonbubble Gothly, it’s a fun and funky outfit.

Cat People

Aida Ewing has come out with a new skin set that I will undoubtedly be showing more often. The Kaelyn set seems to fit my shape better—I wonder if Aida is making to the avatar shape for whom the skin is named. The Mokatana definitely didn’t look as good on me—I have a face shape more like Kaelyn’s—especially in the mouth. Ms. Queue Marlowe has come out with two new styles that are, as usual, delicious and fun. This topknot is SO Queue.

Cat People

Finally, today’s giftie in the Advent Calendar is a royal throne for your favorite KittyCat made lovingly by Carlotta Ceawlin. The seat opens so if you want to dump the cat in, it’s possible. (Oops, did I just say that?)

A Christmas State of Mind

15 12 2013

A Christmas State of Mind

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.    –Mary Ellen Chase

A Christmas State of Mind

I am enjoying the holidays a lot this year. I made a crapload of cookies (that are now in the freezer). I tied special ribbons all over the tree. I remodeled my family room and sewed a special holiday runner for my mantel. I went to a cocktail party last night and noshed on the holiday special treat in these parts: raw beef and onions. And I have been knitting like mad to get some gifts done too. So… I kind of dressed up elfishly to feel it in my heart.

I started with Shai Delacroix’s boat-neck top, a casual mesh piece with a great texture change HUD that allows a variety of looks, all with stripes. I wore red, of course, and matched my socks (cuz matching socks with shirt is very festive). And I put on Isabelle Requiem’s new winter shorts for a little elfish fun. Merry winter boots with pompoms from Anessa Stine make the look complete.

A Christmas State of Mind

My face is speckled with stars from Airedine Poe’s darling gift for the KittyCats Advent Calendar. In fact, I have two more gifts in this blog from the Calendar—first, my silly darling poses from Gidge Uriza and if you look at my nails, some awesome candy striped nails from Giela Delpaso, who has been giving in holiday spirit for both this and the Peace on Earth hunt. She offered TWO sets for the KittyCats Advent Calendar. Go give Giela some of your linden by buying one of her regular nail sets—she deserves some thanks.

advent nails_001

PeachieMuah has come out with a new doll skin, which I wore with elven glee and Isabelle Requiem’s moody eyes have a certain twinkle. I tied my hand up with a bow with Cherella Capra’s gacha ring (one of many) that she is offering at the Christmas Market Event, that is still open. Of course, M4ri1yn Magic’s cute hair with eensy ponytails makes the look—how much more festive can I get?

Christmas on the Flip Side

11 12 2013

Christmas on the Flip Side

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Sweating his fat away
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Water-skis on his sleigh
Never have a white Christmas
When you in Melbourne live
Wearing hot pants on the beach
When you your presents give

~ Bradley Stanley

Christmas on the Flip Side

I realized I needed to get over this cold thing and SL was the place to do it. Instead of trying to warm up, I just put myself on the flip side—the other side of the planet in Australia, where Christmas is warm and summery. In Australia, I don’t need the boots, the long underwear, the damn hat and mittens. I can wear a short little mini dress and do just fine. This minidress from SamanthaSJones is ideal with red roses and a skirt that’s just up to there, perfect in the holiday heat. Nuria Augapfel and Claire Messenger’s sexy high heels with a gift-wrapped bow are ideal in green, completing the holiday look. And if you look closely (past my darling bangle from Maxi Gossamer, featured at Collabor88 where everyone is falling into the water because they didn’t reset the tp point), you will see Giela Delpaso’s international-flavored nails, offered as her exceedingly generous Peace on Earth hunt gift. I chose the Australian nails, of course.

Christmas on the Flip Side

Julia Merosi is generously offering this chic and sassy little kittycat necklace as yesterday’s KittyCats Advent Calendar gift and Sileny Noel is offering a set of sexy lined eye makeups (one of which I am wearing) as today’s gift. Lano Ling recently put out this gorgeous pair of holiday eyes for all comers–grab these beauties. Long wavy locks from MissAllSunday Lemon suit this darling hat from Misseuro Chow. And Sawsan Secretspy’s sunkissed skin is the look to have for a summery Christmas, glowing with radiance from the sun, exuding warmth for a hot holiday.

Winter Is A’Comin’

10 12 2013

Winter Is A'Comin'

Winter is icumen in, Lhude sing Goddamm, Raineth drop and staineth slop, And how the wind doth ramm! Sing: Goddamm. ~ Ezra Pound

Winter Is A'Comin'

Yesterday it was cold and the wind was blowing the sparkling crystals of snow off the trees, glistening in the sunlight in a most spectacular way. We are supposed to get more snow today and the skies have that certain gray cast. I realized once I put together this blog every item I am wearing relates to winter storms. First start with Poulet Koenkamp’s newest dress in “Turbulent Gray.” With a storm of translucent skirts, shimmering with swirls and feathers, this gown includes an optional fur stole.

My jewelry is Isaura Simon’s generous and lovely diamond snowflake and necklace, offered on the KittyCats Advent Calender as yesterday’s gift, a perfect accessory for this winter look, especially as I stand in Tya Fallingbridge’s gazebo decorated with white lights and surrounded by Cory Edo’s snow-kissed trees, both available at FaMESHed.

Winter Is A'Comin'

Aida Ewing recently released a set of skins at Collabor88, adding to my cool and beautiful snowy look. Kavar Cleanslate’s hair (appropriately from the “Wild Fusion” set) is cool and blue with white and gray highlights. And Maddox Dupont is offering these gorgeous “infected sky” colored eyes in the Peace on Earth hunt.

The Residents

9 12 2013

The Residents

“Most people are other people.” ~ Oscar Wilde

My friend, Tutsy Navarathna, recently released a new machinima that posed a really interesting question. What happens when someone from “outside” comes to our world? What do they see?

In this case, two aliens end up in our world, trying to understand the humans they see. But the machinima has a brilliant SL twist. I won’t say much more except I will encourage you to watch the whole thing. (At just over 10 minutes long, it’s a lot of content, very beautifully assembled, and it has an actual story of interest, which beats most machinima I have seen. Besides the beautiful imagery, showing some of the best sims of SL, the story is interesting and humorous.)

The Residents

I was inspired by the many “humans” Tutsy’s aliens encountered to make a human of my own in the same spirit. She is casual and otherworldly. First I start with a cute knit top from Sanura Snowpaw in a chic black and white stripe, off the shoulder mesh. Then I add Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus’ boot flared jeans with their brilliant texture change HUD. (The jeans come in a bazillion colors but I chose black to make this look.) Finally I end up with Pixieplumb Flanagan’s funky boots that also include a texture-change HUD—and I chose zebra print.

The Residents

Of course, Aida Ewing’s recent release of fairy skins inspired me in this blakc and white look. With beautifully rendered grays, the skin makes my “human” aetherial. A pair of intense gift eyes from Silverr Andel (part of a very generous set put out for the Peace on Earth hunt) creates her spark of life. And Kavar Cleanslate’s wild ponytails, using one of his crazier texture sets, makes my girl a combination of casual and unusual—a perfect “resident” for our aliens to observe.

The Residents

Finally, I share a tableau of residents, some of whom the aliens might encounter, in a typical scene in front of a holiday fireplace, generously provided by Misa for the KittyCats Advent Calendar for yesterday. She includes sitting rugs for “humanoids,” “dinkies” and “tinies.” I got Maxxi Toxx in his tiny avatar to come over and lie in front of the fire on the tiny rug to demonstrate. (You have to see the machinima to “get” the photo—it will all make sense.)

“The cold cut like a many bladed knife.” ~ Israel Zangwill

Brrrrr

A cold front has blown through my town and the rest of the country and we’re all huddling in for the duration. Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus just released this chic pair of boots in autumn colors that include a color change for the boots, the strap around the boots and the sole. In typical L&B style, the boots are sexy down to the last detail and versatile for many looks.

LG hud

SamanthaSJones proudly released this trenchcoat recently. I have seen the style in other stores but not with Sam’s unique twist on it. Rather than offering the coat in many colors, you get a coat OF many colors with her special hud that allows 120 different colors. I have to be honest—I was late on this post because I spent so much time clicking all the colors, trying to decide what I liked.

Brrrrr

Helyanwe Vindaloo offered this blushing, cold weather skin in the KittyCats Advent Calendar yesterday. Remember that you can get previous days’ gifts in the calendar up until Christmas, so if you missed yesterday, get it today. My sleek hair is Tabata Jewell’s newest style, offering a close-to-the-head style that looks chic and fashionable, perfect for the new menswear haute couture look or for wearing short under hats (or earmuffs—these from Izzie Button).

Brrrrr

Finally, under my gloves I sport a secret manicure. Today, Caroline Apollo offered this darling nailpolish set as a gift in the KittyCats Advent Calendar. With four different kitty motifs, you can share your KittyCat love on your Slink hand nails.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

5 12 2013

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev’rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in ev’ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

~ “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” (version by Bing Crosby)

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

My studio has been taken over by the coziness of Christmas. My KittyCat, Calliekins, pops up from time to time to cuddle with me on the sofa while I am planning my holiday lists. The countdown to Christmas, my seasonal target date, is getting hectic. All these Advent Calendars are not making it any easier!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

First, we have KittyCats’ Advent Calendar, which is offering a darling gift from a KittyCats friend every day. Today’s gift was a darling antique cabinet with doors and a drawer that open and close from Bebe Begonia. I put books in but you could put anything you like in this antique cabinet.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Speaking of Advent calendars, Cory Edo is offering a great one at the Arcade, which offers 12 gifts for the 12 days of Christmas. You pump your quarters into the gacha machine and it spews out keys that can be rezzed to open the doors. DO NOT rez a key for a door you have already opened. You will render it unusable—one key opens one door once only. I rezzed the #1 key and got this darling holiday bird with frame.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

If you hadn’t noticed, I decided to begin to look a lot like Christmas myself with this short sleeved turtleneck from LacunaInc. The weather being what it is today, short sleeves would not do well for me in RL but in SL, it’s always the perfect temperature, so I could snuggle up on a Holiday-theme sofa with Calliekins and enjoy the twinkling lights on the holiday tree from Cory Edo, both offered at FaMESHed. Ceberus Noel is offering these cute cuffed boots for the winter season made from mesh.

Finally, I gave myself a holiday appearance with green eyes from Audrey Lamede and one of the Shyla Diggs/Tricky Boucher skins being offered at the Arcade. With beautifully lined eyes and a deep red mouth, this ones a keeper if you only get one. And I am wearing the rare long hair from MissAllSunday Lemon in Ash, which is also being offered at the Arcade.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will start
And the thing that will make them ring
Is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart, right within your heart

Luck Be a Lady

4 12 2013

Luck Be a Lady

They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt

~ “Luck Be a Lady” by Frank Sinatra

Luck Be a Lady

I am one lucky lady. I have this sexy little dress from Ariadna Garrigus, these longer than long red vinyl thigh high boots from Bax Coen and my own showgirl sign, advertising my luck from Agustkov. The dress comes in black with red or white but I chose the red because it’s my lucky color. The boots come in several colors—they were recently released in vinyl because, well, every girl in SL needs a little kink in her SL. And the sign is a great one with texture change, on and off marquee lights, and seven poses—some of which I show here except lying on my back, which is one of Rogan Diesel’s new “Erotique” poses.

Luck Be a Lady

It seems lady luck is what you need at the gachas. I thought SL banned gambling but a little gumball machine stuffing doesn’t seem out of the question. I am lucky because I got Queue Marlowe’s rarest hair offered at the Arcade, this fresh-out-of-bed sexy ‘do with a queen of hearts crown. And my skin is one of Umazuma Metaluna fresh faces from the Arcade. I love the cat eyes and the bright cherry lips softened by a freckled face. Sexy as heck—get them all!

Luck Be a Lady

I would be remiss in telling you about the gift for the fourth day of the KittyCats Advent Calendar. It’s such a sweet gift, it just didn’t fit in with my Lady Luck, but you’d be lucky to get it. Dellybean North has lovingly recreated the KittyCats in a music-playing snow globe. Click the globe and snow falls while a sweet lullaby plays.
