“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.” ~ King James Bible
The holidays remind me of the angels who tiptoe into my SL and make it better. Start with Multimuse, who answered my early morning call for help finding wings. Add in Barely, who can throw down like no one else and take it like a man. There’s Z, who taught me windlight so many years ago and still teaches me some new trick with SL every day. And John, who tells me what esoteric dish he is making for dinner so I can rush to find the recipe. Janey, in Skin Addiction, once said something nice to me. Stephen logs on to hear me whine and still likes me. I could go on and on about my many angels (chief among them Callie). I hope you remember your angels this year and thank them for blessing your life. And in SL, if you speak to a “stranger,” try to treat them with kindness because they are someone’s angel too.
This year for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, we had a bunch of angels, all of them giving beautiful gifts via the calendar. Today’s gift is no exception, a custom-colored gown from Mami Jewell. Mami has colored this beautiful and dramatic piece a lovely coral (though the windlight I used kind of obscures the color). The dress includes the amazing headdress and the barbed wire decorations and the amazing mesh bodice. And it’s a GIFT! A full Azul dress!
I wanted a beautiful skin to suit this look and I didn’t have to look very far with the gorgeous skins from Shyla Diggs’ work at Uber on my list. Shyla made this run of skins absolutely gorgeous with dramatic but useable makeups, colorways that will look fabulous with many different outfits. And as always, you get Shyla’s gorgeous brows, nose, lips and blushing face. My dramatic hair is Mina Nakamura’s featured work for Kustom9, a wild and fantastic hair, perfect for photos like this. With a great texture-change HUD, you get several color options, including a series of ombres. My wings from Selos Dae come in four colors, all of them beautifully textured and in four iterations for your wearing pleasure. They add the final perfect touch to this angel.
