Candy Cane Christmas—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 10

“It’s a Candy Cane Christmas
Sweet as it can be.”

~ “Candy Cane Christmas” by Darius Rucker

Candy Cane Christmas

Mariska Simons finally brought out the wildcat in this kitten with her gift for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Day Calendar. Mariska is offering this darling, if brief, bra and shorty shorts set to all advent calendar clickers today (and onwards until January 4). The top comes as a system layer or in one of several different appliers (this one being the Omega applier, which goes directly on to the Belleza Venus body). With a darling print that makes a kitten like me purr, it’s a great little set to heat up your cold winter nights and sweeten the holiday.

Candy Cane Christmas

The great news is that Inka Mexicola JUST put out Belleza Venus body appliers for the EVO line. It’s a beautiful look—the skin looks just wonderful over this shape and I love being able to wear the skins and have it all match. My fabulous waves are Truth Hawks’ newest, which I have been saving for a really seductive look because this hair is pure sex. I kept myself warm with darling mesh knee socks, now fitted to the Belleza body, from Muka Release that she has at The Big Show. It all adds up to a sweet look. (Mr. Harold Heckubaugh next to me agrees.)

Caught in the Wild

Caught in the Wild

“So, I ask you. Who is the happier elf? She who has braved the seas of life and risked everything, or she who has stood upon the shore and merely existed?” (based on a quote by Hunter S. Thompson)

Caught in the Wild

As it’s known, sometimes I am too lazy to do my own blog so I pull in another avatar who has a fabulous look to stand in for me. Today I feature the avatar Omenapu, who so kindly offered to pose for me and write something up.

She is a tribal elf, wandering the demilitarized territory between two great civilizations. Stealing and hunting to make a living, and rarely mixing with humanity.

Much of this outfit was created by the masterful Pucca Firecaster, whose texturing and design of all things fantasy is second to none. And just begs to be layered and mixed.


Caught in the Wild

Don’t be afraid to play with attachments and mix-and-match accessories to achieve a style. Custom tinting is very easy to do on moddable items and can be all you need to tie an outfit together.

I tend to use only moddable items when making an outfit in SL. Very often, I will see a particular part of an item that I like, but do not necessarily care to use the whole item. I’ll edit a face and make parts invisible, and link and attach things in places for which they were not designed, just to get that certain je ne sais quoi.

Now her eyes meet mine like green lightning-they are green, these eyes of hers, whose power is so indescribable-green, but as are precious stones, or deep unfathomable mountain lakes.” ~ Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Venus in Furs


The 100 Block opens today and as you might expect from this event, there’s a lot of sexy seeded in with the regular fashions. Actually, most of it is sexy, especially this corset and stocking outfit from Mariska Simons, one of the exclusives she is offering. With a mesh corset that cinches the waist just right and stockings and panties that can be worn as system pieces or as I do applied to the Cute Azz, it’s a versatile outfit. (Also comes with boob appliers.) I accessorized with cuffs from Muka Release that come with a great texture change HUD that allows a combo of colors across three elements of the cuff. There are also ankle cuffs, but I decided to forego those to wear these crazy-high mules from Antonia Millar which also come with a texture-change HUD.


Sawsan Secretspy is offering two exclusive skins at the 100 Block this year. With sensuous shading and sexy makeup, the skins come with appliers for everything (as you can see by my beautiful behind) and is offered in several makeups. Nova Faerye has made three hairstyles for the event with four different texture change HUDs, including this fantastic Chromatic hud. I spent a lot of time today clicking around to explore the options of all these pieces to get the right amount of heat and sexy in the look. The 100 Block opens today with lots to see and runs through the end of the month.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska Simons hit on a vital part of SL life when she conceived of Blacklace—sex and love. In the business of seduction in SL, it’s not enough to just seduce with words (though those are important). We have the image of the avatar that plays into all this. When a woman wants to seduce a lover, prettying up and wearing lace or satin is a good plan.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska’s lingerie is sometimes subtle but often pretty blunt. A Blacklace girl knows what she wants and how she’s going to get it. With laces and ties, leather and bindings, garters and thongs, she’s telling you pretty strongly what’s on her mind, and it isn’t a trip to the grocery store.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska also knows that a girl wants to feel pretty. It’s the outward manifestation of her inner image—she is sexual and beautiful, strong and assertive. She wants to show off her beauty and revel in her femininity. And for many who are in SL, being able to do this fulfills our fantasies.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska gladly offered to be a VIP Sponsor and Store Sponsor for Fashion for Life. She realized supporting this cause would be a great opportunity to give back some of what SL has given her. As well as offering money out of her own pocket to be a VIP Sponsor, Mariska will have a store at Fashion for Life where she will donate 4 items whose proceeds go to the American Cancer Society via the RFL program in SL. Grab some of these pretties and other beautiful things in her store and help her fight for the cure.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Make sure you attend the Fashion for Life, March 12-22, on 9 sims hosted by the American Cancer Society and SL’s Relay for Life!

Inspired by a Violet….

A friend of mine, Mr. Oh, recently IM’d me to tell me about a new blog he had come upon. He is a wonderful blogger for Second Man—articulate, critical and illustrative. He raises the bar for other bloggers every time. So a recommendation from him needs to be heeded. And he was right. Digital Butch is a terrific blog by Saaskje Violet, a “boi” who likes to show her butch looks and explain where to find fashions she likes. What I so like about it is that Saaskje definitely has an editorial viewpoint, a unique voice, and a great fashion sense. Inspired by Saaskje, I put together this look.

Inspired by a Violet...

First the jacket, a punk marvel from Amerie Spitteler, who has her own unique voice. Kinda punk, kinda Tokyo street girl, it’s hard where it needs to be and sweet where it needs to be. I especially like how she got the system piece to convincingly show belts across the torso and combine it with the prim belt. It’s all of a piece and makes sense. I wear a little bra from Mariska Simons underneath—our girl is pretty underneath all that armor, you know. And leggings are from AvaGardner Kungler. Didn’t think she could do punk, didya?

I love these boots from Vasha Martinek, which I have been holding on to for a while. Vasha offers a plethora of fantasy and funky boots at DV8 and her designs are getting less chunky and more refined. My only complaint? This set did not have RED boots!

Inspired by a Violet...

I know a couple days ago I pointed out that Gala Phoenix’s skins were “young” skins—too baby-faced, too dewy. For this look they are perfect because the sweetness of the skins softens this look substantially. I don’t expect a punky girl to be all sophisticated. I expect her face to show vulnerability, and this skin makes it work.

My glorious hair is from Emilie Carter, who provides the grid with shaved, wild hair that is beautiful at the same time. In addition, she makes hair bases that are shaved to match her wild hair.

Black Heart in Love

I promised I would be bringing in some new stuff for Valentine’s Day gifts and I am getting there… but first one more evening gown.

Black Hearts in Love

Mariska Simons is known for her sexy lingerie but she has expanded out to evening wear as well. In simple black, this gown is elegant and simple. A halter top leads to a low cut open back and opera-length gloves dress the outfit up. I would say this dress is on par with most nicely done evening dresses in SL—nothing overly spectacular about the textures or shape. However, it comes with a bonus….

Black Hearts in Love

Underneath the gown is a set of sexy lingerie. You didn’t really think I would get out of there with a simple long gown, right? I mean.. come on! The best part of this gown is the pretty underthings, which include the bodice you see with the gown but also a garter belt, stockings, and panties. So after a long night of dancing and romancing, you can go home and get busy.

Black Hearts in Love

I show a beautiful skin from Nicole Button, ideal for certain women of color. With its glossy dark red lips and kohl-lined eyes and sweet little beauty mark on the chin, it’s a delicious sultry skin.
