“Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.” ~ Marcel Proust

Nostalgia--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 7

Who doesn’t like the idea of a Victorian Christmas? A lady waiting for her carriage outside her home, perhaps for a party or clandestine visit to her lover. Luna Barak is offering this gorgeous winter mesh outfit, which includes the draping sleeves, the hair tucked under the hood, and the lovely pattern, at Fair Play, with at least part of the cost benefitting Relay for Life. Luna has always been terrifically generous with her work for that particular charity—she had participated in Fashion for Life when I ran it—and now she is giving this, which includes a great HUD to change the colors of the hair and also change the color of the coat (red, green or white). It’s an absolutely lovely piece and I posed with Olaenka Chesnokov’s lamp post, which includes eight poses and is 100% original mesh from Olaenka’s own self. Since it’s for Christmas on 34th Street, it’s giftable to someone you love or perfect for your own holiday snapshots. (Note, I did change one of the poses using the Avimote Posemaker in order to better show off the coat. Artistic license and all that.)

It *is* the season for giving and today has two gifts from the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. First, Sawsan Secretspy is offering this exquisite lady’s skin as her gift in the calendar. It comes with and without cleavage option and includes this very neutral makeup palette so you can wear it with other makeups. It’s for system bodies, and that is just fine because anyone can wear it then. Julia Merosi, who has gone from creator to KittyCatS lover, made this darling seasonal clutch with berries and beads and a tinsel trimming. Remember: if you miss getting to the Calendar any day, you can get the previous day’s gifts so don’t worry. Though it’s one per avatar, there is ample opportunity to fill your inventory with goodness.

“A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle

Tangled—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 4

I have the tree up, lights on, some décor put out, but I had to get to a holiday party. I had this festive dress from Ever Wonder, a lovely mesh piece she was selling at Designer Showcase that included a texture change HUD so I could try a few colorways on. I slipped on my new shoes from Glamistry and great jewelry from Maxi Gossamer for this month’s Fameshed and rushed out the door to the party.

Now, you all know I have a new dog named Ziggy. She is a darling mutt, full of joy and life and coziness too. But she’s also still a bit of a puppy and she finds her way into things she shouldn’t frequently. For example, she has found (and chewed) slippers I forgot I had. She has chewed the hem on a sweater of mine (after she laid all over it). And she’s chewed up three iPad charging cords. (What the appeal is, I have no idea.) So I should have felt a little trepidation about leaving her loose with the holiday decorations out but I was already late.

Sure enough, she got into the tree. Thanks to today’s gift from Garvie Garzo in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, I have a perfect representation of Ziggy (though she’s not the same breed). When I rezzed the gift, I laughed because, yep, that’s my dog and somehow Garvie has met her. Garvie went to considerable pains to create a pet that would make you smile for the holidays, so I hope you rush to the calendar to grab this silly puppy to add warmth to your own home.

Monicuzza Babenco has made a lovely applier for the Catwa mesh head at the Dressing Room Fusion. At a ridiculously low price, it’s absolute beauty on a budget with the beautiful features and freckles (!). Mirja Mills has created this elegant updo with a pearl-studded scarf for all your holiday dress up, also discount priced for My Attic. So I can still smile, though I will be replacing all the lights.

“The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.” ~ E.E. Cummings

Callie told me the KittyCatS Winter Wonderland was an editor pick in the Destination guide. She was excited because there was beautiful fresh snow fall at the sim so everything was glistening and white. I freaked. See, Callie is from Calliefonia (her spelling, not Jerry Brown’s), and she really has no concept of snow or snow management. Where I am from in the hearty northern midwest, snow needs to be displaced as soon as it falls to prevent slipping, sliding, tripping, icing, and resulting lawsuits. You must immediately get out there and shovel it away. So I put on my fringed jacket from Paolla Flux that I got at Shiny Shabby, pulled on my jeans from Hilly Haalan (skin tight, baby) and boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo from Shiny Shabby. I whipped out the shovel I got at the Tannenbaum Market from Redd Columbia (she’s back!) and took advantage of the shoveling animation.

Thank goodness Tommy Fairplay and Shylah Honey are giving out this hair for men and women in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. It’s great for men or women and includes ALL the hundreds of colors they make in hair and a separate HUD for change the texture on the beanie. And it’s warm! Umazuma Metaluna has made a set of luscious skins for the Arcade that include the sort of seasonal sparkle you need for a fashionable look.

Get to the KittyCats Winter Wonderland to hit the calendar for this great hair, see the sights, ride the carriage and skate, and rest assured—the walk is shoveled. You won’t slip.

“I am a rare species, not a stereotype.”~ Ivan E. Coyote

Rare—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 1

Today opens the first door to the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, a project I have been working on with my partner, Callie Cline, for my fourth year. Every day from December 1 to December 24, a door on the calendar is opened and an exclusive gift comes out, one per resident, when the door is clicked. Then the door stays open for the rest of the days until the end of the year. So each day, you can run and treat yourself to a little gift from one of these designers:

  • Carina Larsen for AMACCI
  • Queue Marlowe for Analog Dog
  • Sands Leavitt for Azuchi
  • Mami Jewell for Azul
  • Barnesworth Anubis for BA
  • June Dion for Bare Rose
  • Mariska Simons for Blacklace
  • Belle Roussel for Chop Zuey
  • Tommy Fairplay for Damselfly
  • Aleida Rhode for Elysium
  • Mirja Mills for Emo-tions
  • AvaGardner Kungler for Kunglers
  • Santana Lumiere for La Boheme
  • Bastchild Lotus for Lapointe & Bastchild
  • Garvie Garzo for MeadowWorks
  • Piraiyah Novikov for Nomad
  • Reishiprophet for Nivaro
  • Rebel Hope for Rebel Hope Designs
  • Beloved Ruby for Ruby
  • Shai Delacroix for Shai
  • Sanura Snowpaw for Somnia
  • StellaJane for StellaJane
  • Kimmera Madison for Tres Beau
  • Sawsan Secretspy for Wow Skins
  • zzoiezee for Zanze

Many of the designers are personally KittyCats owners but they were asked to make a gift that anyone could enjoy—not necessarily about KittyCats or cats. So you can be guaranteed the theme will be holiday and the gift will be fantastic. I know I am excited! (Like what kind of great silly gift will Shai make? Will Mariska make something super sexy again? How much glitter will Belle throw at it?) Last year we even won  the “Favorite Holiday Event” for the Avi Choice awards!

You will find the calendar at the KittyCats Wonderland Sim, the KittyCats main store, Amacci, Damselfly, LaBoheme, and Elysium, and I will update on other locations. Go to any of these locations and you can grab your gift for the day. And check back daily on my blog to see what’s coming!

Rare—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 1

Sands Leavitt made this fabulous suit for women to fit several mesh bodies for the androgynous theme for Uber this month, tapping into the idea of the beautiful rarity of the confidently androgyne. With an optional turtleneck “dickie” you can purchase to wear, the suit can serve as formalwear for humans of any and all genders. As usual, Sands lends his professional experience in modeling and texturing to this suit, which is sexy in the best ways. I paired it with Maxi Gossamer’s gorgeous necklace for Uber and stiletto heels from Claire Messenger and Nura Augapfel to up the fierce in my look. A bag from Harry Hyx takes us out for business. And I picked up some great poses from Di Hoorenbeek at Gen Neutral, where you can find great stuff every month.

What makes my beautiful soul a “rare” as well is my beauty’s green and blue eyes, the set part of the gift by Carina Larsen for the first day of the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. She gives two sets of eyes—one blue and one green—and since they are mesh, I can mix them up, so I did! My hair is the unisex style Carina has created in a wintery, snowy tint, great for a handsome Arctic warrior or our beautiful androgyne. Shyla Diggs’ beautiful new skin for Uber includes chest layers to make the ‘dehance” the breasts. I wore it with the Belleza Isis body, however, so that option is not available on appliers. I did, however, reduce my breast size with my sliders.
