Infinity

“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” ~ Stephen Chbosky

Infinitely

Art in Hats, benefiting the American Diabetes Association, opened with a plethora of headwear for the stylish avatar, including this hat shaped in a bent lemniscate, which resembled to me, the infinity sign (∞). It’s an elegant, chic headpiece that combines well with the straps echoed in my dress and shoes. The dress, which is an attempted fit to the Maitreya body (close enough), is one of Mariska Simon’s newest, with a lace tied back and a great number of colors for your choice of sexy club wear. The glass platform heels from Azlyn Vaher include a HUD that allows the heart enclosed in the glass to be turned off or on and a sexy tied ankle.

Mea Carnell’s beautiful leather flowered necklace provides a soft point to another otherwise sort of extreme look. I applied Aida Ewing’s recently LeLutka applier release, chose her chic eye and lip makeup and then used Thora Charron’s great hairbase applier and ponytail to complete this very sleek, very chic look.

Autumn Mornings

Autumn Mornings

“Once in a while i am struck
all over again… by just how blue
the sky appears .. on wind-played
autumn mornings, blue enough
to bruise a heart.”
― Sanober Khan

Autumn Mornings

A beautiful fall morning woke me up and I took a walk outside to enjoy the colors and the fresh air. It’s unseasonably warm so the vibrant colors are a pleasure. I wore a boho sort of outfit including a new top from Ariadna Garrigus that comes with a great texture-change HUD that allowed me to switch around until I was able to match the scads of gorgeous jewelry from Mea Carnell in her Gacha Garden collection. She gives you many options so you can combine necklaces and different mixes of bracelets and arm cuffs. She even offers rings that fit Maitreya or Slink hands. My boots are Senzati0n Domenitzo’s feature for Sad November. I decided that Paul Lapointe’s great boyfriend jeans would work great with this top.

Autumn Mornings

Inka Mexicola’s beautiful skin for Kustom9 allowed me to remove the mesh heads for a day and breathe in the fresh air. With several makeups, it’s fresh and lovely with gorgeous brows and eye makeups. My tousled hair is one of Shylah Honey’s pieces for Fameshed this month, an unrigged wavy ‘do finger combed and tossed back with pretty tendrils framing the face (and suspiciously like my own RL hair).  Enjoy the fall colors on the Loch Noble sim as I did. It’s gorgeous!

You Cannot Hide

You Cannot Hide

“You cannot hide in a hat; you will be noticed, especially by men. To men, you become a lady when you don a hat–one who they rush to open doors for. To women, you become an inspiration, reminding them that they have a closet full of hats they have not had the courage to wear.” ~ Unknown

You Cannot Hide

A woman in a hat is a glorious thing and highly unusual nowadays. I am showing a bunch of hats today from three designers participating in Art for Hats, opening November 4. Each is throwing a portion of their sales to the American Diabetes Association. I wore Mami Jewell’s newest elegant gown with all its finery to balance the magnificence of the hats I am showing, including a veiled vintage piece from Sonatta Morales in the top photo. Elegant stiletto pumps from Glamistry are the perfect accompaniment to this high style look.

You Cannot Hide

Sascha Frangilli is donating proceeds from three hats for the event, including this high bouquet of white lilies. It may be perfect for a wedding look.

You Cannot Hide

This sculpture of sticks and berries is also from Sascha Frangilli and creates a beautiful organic silhouette.

You Cannot Hide

Sonatta Morales is donating proceeds from this artistic pearl-studded piece (with a pearl teardrop below the eye).

You Cannot Hide

And Wicca Merlin has created this Marie Antoinette ship sailing top hat for both men and women as well as this futuristic sculpture that includes a great texture change HUD for the grid, flaps, helmet and gems.

Finding hair to wear with hats is not easy but Thora Charron has recently come out with a hairbase applier for the LeLutka mesh heads and a set of ponytails which are ideals for most hats and also for a sleek look. Monicuzza Babenco has created a gorgeous high-fashion makeup palette for her LeLutka appliers, available at Shiny Shabby.

My Halloween

My Halloween

Trick or Treat, be so sweet, give me something good to eat!

I was remiss in doing my Halloween blog because, well, 700 kids. Each year when we have trick or treating in my village, tons of kids show up from all over the city to get a treat. (Nice neighborhood, decent sidewalks, kind people.) This year it was easily 700 (guessing from the 12 jumbo bags of candy and box of 250 fun pencils all gone minus the few “quality checks” we had to give the candy). I typically put spooky sounds in the CD player and sit outside for 3 hours to hand out candy until it’s all gone. This year it rained off and on, sometimes pouring, and the temperature was 48, but the kids still came! I was also interviewed for the local TV news. With wet hair and no makeup, I aimed to give the scare to Halloween to the whole city. Here’s a photo of the kids lined up to the sidewalk at my neighbors’, waiting patiently.

The children were so cute! And it reminded me of the KittyCatS CostumeParty set, that has been sitting at my doorway for a good long time, asking for treats! Callie made these kitties based on RL retro costumes—the kind that you and I wore, not our kids. With plastic masks and bright silly costumes, there ARE kittens behind there but first you have to give a treat! They come with a special animation that allows you to ride with them on a broom. They also come with a week’s worth of food and they are collectible cats with the Genesis KittyCats traits, which means they have the potential to pass on their hidden traits like other Genesis cats. They potentially can pop up new hidden traits that can be discovered only through breeding. And best of all, if you breed two CostumeParty KittyCats, you get a special baby. They are transferable as well so if you want to get one for your friend or loved one as a sweet gift, here you go!

The scary thing is they are only available until November 3! Get over there NOW!
