More KittyCatS Advent Calendar Gifts!

There are more and more gifts coming out of the KittyCatS Advent Calendar that wow me. What an amazing gift of creativeness and generosity we are receiving this year from these creators! Thank you so much!

First is this darling gift from Cherelle Capra of Circa for Day 11, a gorgeous holiday fireplace with decor and pillows. The cushions have 11 animations each, different in each, and marshmallow roasting sticks. The fireplace has on/off on touch.

Izara Zuta of 7 Deadly Skins provides the gift for Day 12, a gorgeous Omega applier fashioned on LAQ but can be worn on other heads like Logo and Catwa. In three tones, the set includes appliers for Tango, Phatazz and Slink hands and feet.

Day 13 brings us a whole set of fun from Rebel Hope for Rebel Hope Designs including mesh boots in red with green garters, a green knit dress with a red belt and a variety of ornamented kitty ears. What a perfect festive combo. I am seated at the gift for Day 14, a candy cane speckled bistro set from Victor Newchurch of Newchurch. Each chair includes a variety of poses for men and women and texture change cushions.

Sweetness

Sweetness

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk

Sweetness

I liked this quote because it reminded me that carrying a grudge is easy. Forgiving and remembering goodness isn’t as easy. I try hard to remember the creators who send me items to review without expectation–their gifts of talent are one of the sweetnesses in my SL.

Something’s so sweet about a easy dress in the middle of the summer, something stylish and fashionable but not too tight or fussy and this dress from Marcopol Oh from Shiny Shabby fits the bill. Fit to the Maitreya body, It includes a little sexiness on the side. I paired it with a great necklace from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby and high heels from Senzati0n Domenitzo.

Sweetness

GenesisLab has created this gorgeous mesh head for Shiny Shabby this month. I love that I am able to wear system eyes and don’t have to mess around with mesh eyes to wear it, I was also able edit my shape with the head stretch to change the look of the face. It did require some editing in the eye depth, and I had to mess with the lashes.

Sweetness

Especially sweet as well is when a creator donates a portion of their income from the creation of an item for a charity or someone’s need. Carina Larsen is donating a portion of her sales from the sale of her gorgeous hair at Hair Fair 2016 to Wigs for Kids. She includes this full, pulled back look with optional bangs.

Sweetness

She also offers an elegant updo with optional bang styles.

Sweetness

A very full-bodied, long style with a side part makes me look a little Jackie O. And she is offering duo-colored pigtails as a gift for those attending Hair Fair.

Angel of the Morning

Angel of the Morning

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby.

~ “Angel of the Morning,” The Pretenders version

Angel of the Morning

Spring is coming so I don’t think it’s entirely unbelievable that I would want to walk out into my garden in my dainties, especially when they are as beautiful as the lingerie Erratic Rain makes. She has released this gorgeous robe for Uber which can be worn open, as I show it, or closed via the HUD. In colors that match her lingerie perfectly (here I wear a bra and panties set she previously made), it’s a beautiful gift for the lady in your life or yourself. Senzati0n Domenitzo recently released these classic pumps in her store and has made available a set of spring colors. I found my garden perfect with Cory Edo’s collection for Uber, a small ivy-covered house with surrounding garden, complete with lighted trees, stone pavers and a beautifully textured terrain. She includes some beautifully-conceived garden furniture for sale as well, including this peacock bench.

Angel of the Morning

The Se7en Project opens in a couple days and it includes some new and old designers. I am kind of interested to see what the mix will be, especially after pulling out this lovely hair bow from Frangipani Flow that comes with a HUD to manage the color of the bow and the individual blossoms. Shyla Diggs has made a new applier for the Catwa heads, this gorgeous look for spring which she is featuring at Uber. As always, her artistry and delicate hand with makeups comes through on the skins. Carina Larsen’s beautiful updo is an elegant top to this beautiful spring look.

Love Birds

Love Birds

It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds. ~ Aesop

Love Birds

I walked out to the beach to find that it looked like a flock of lovebirds had taken nest in my palm trees. Oh wait. They purred and I realized they were KittyCats perched in my palms. KittyCatS recent release of LoveBirdS include a removable beak and crest and come with brightly colored feathers, made for Valentine’s Day but perfect to brighten up your spring after a long winter. Each KittyCat includes a special animation in them, where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend.

Love Birds

I enjoyed the warm air in an outfit made of separates from the first anniversary Shiny Shabby. My top from evastika Aura is fitted for Maitreya bodies matched to denim shorts from Systi Cisse, also for Maitreya bodies. Cute bowed flats from Darling Monday come in several colors. A cute little diamond-studded watch from Bob for Shiny Shabby includes a HUD to change various parts of the watch.

Love Birds

Carina Larsen has made this cute and casual ponytail for Shiny Shabby with her great texture-change options. I am wearing Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier for Shiny Shabby on the Catwa Annie mesh head in a warm tan. I found my palms at the RFL Home & Garden Expo from Cari McKeenan, who got them out late. The donation from purchase of the trees will go directly to ACS.

A Moment White

A Moment White

But pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flower, its bloom is shed;
Or like the snow falls in the river,
A moment white–then melts forever….

~ Robert Burns

A Moment White

It seems all there is for sims lately are winter scenes and all I see outside is a winter scene. It was brutally cold today, so I put on a sweater in RL and found this very cozy one that Kitt Ragu is releasing at Shiny Shabby (opening the 20th). Made for both men and women, the sweater comes in several colors with an underlying shirt if you would like it. I forewent that version and put on a little scarf I found in my inventory from xxRyvenxx and found great little low-cost boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo at The Dressing Room. My jeans were released by Paul Lapointe a bit ago but work so well with the Maitreya body and so many different looks. They come with a brilliant texture change HUD allow different jean colors, pockets and belt and metal colors, though I went with the standard classic color and look.

A Moment White

OK, I admit I stole the hat from Karla Marama’s hair at Hairology. I will find a way to show the actual hair but it conflicted with the sweater, so I opted for Carina Larsen’s hair for the upcoming Shiny Shabby instead. It’s a cute short cut with fringy bangs and a lot of personality. I have once again opted to try an Omega applier on the GA:EG Adriana head, this time putting on Aida Ewing’s skin applier, which she made for the Logo heads but is on an Omega applier so can be used on this head too. I have tested a few Logo appliers and the skin makers, of course, want to have the skin suit the face shape, so when the skin is put on this shape, it can look measurably different and sometimes quite “off.” Aida’s skin looked pretty good and when I applied the add-on makeups, I think the result was quite nice, especially with Aida’s pretty freckles.

Almost There–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 23

Almost There–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 23

And I’m almost there, I’m almost there
People down here think I’m crazy, but I don’t care
Trials and tribulations, I’ve had my share
There ain’t nothing gonna stop me now ‘cause I’m almost there

~ “Almost There” by Anika Noni Rose from The Princess and the Frog

Almost There–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 23

We’re almost there—the end of the gifts in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Don’t worry, though, becaues the calendar will still be around through January 4, so you can still grab the gifts from every day through the new year. Mami Jewell is offering this darling cocktail dress in amethyst as her gift for today, a mesh piece that comes in the five standard sizes plus fitmesh sizes. Mine was specifically made for the Maitreya body and fit almost perfectly. She includes the mesh gloves, a netted fascinator, and a feathered neckpiece with the dress as well.

Glamistry is offering a little incentive to customers, and I think it’s a pretty dandy little gift he’s giving out. If you purchase any single color of these Parrasana heels via MP, the mainstore, or via the HUD, you can go to http://promo.glamistry.com and use the promo code ZCNAHF to get three more random colors that you don’t own added to your HUD for FREE. (Make sure you follow the directions.) The offer ends January 3 at midnight, so get over there. I did test it, and it works great. The random colors I got were pretty nice including the pinky purple I show here.

Almost There–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 23

Catwa Clip just released new versions of the Jessica and Annie heads. Make sure you go to the store and get them from the redelivery HUD. I was having all sorts of problems applying makeup and found that the updates solved all my issues. Nicole Button has created this gorgeous new skin with lipsticks and eyeshadows on separate HUDs. Her eyeshadows are rich and deep while her lipsticks are a bit flat and better worn using the fader in the Catwa HUD to decrease their intensity.

Rare–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 1

Rare–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 1

“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.
