“You’re meddling with powers you can’t possibly comprehend.” ~ Indiana Jones

The Adventure

Once again MadPea Productions is coming out with an event that will solve the problem of “what am I going to do in SL this evening?” Opening August 21 at noon slt, the Lost Treasure of the Inca Warrior is another one of their terrific and beautiful events. Purchase their kit for 1000L and you get this fantastic outfit created by Datrip Blackbart and then you wander the Andes looking for treasure, kind of like Indiana Jones without the snakes. And of course, there is treasure at the end, when you receive the prizes from creators such as Sway Dench and Pucca Firecaster. As always, the play is incredibly creative and uses all the powers of SL for entertainment including the experiences features of SL, and the take-home content is from top notch creators. They are also selling Inca Golden Coins so you can get early access to the sims and not have to fight the lag (and Kiana Writer will be extra super nice to you too). You can see more about it at the MadPea website.

The Adventure

I imagined my own adventurer to be a sort of wild beautiful woman, so I wore AvengeStore’s beautiful new applier for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair—a fair freckled mature skin perfectly suited for redheads or maybe brunettes. AvengeStore was smart in making an additional freckle tattoo for mesh bodies, which I was able to use to make a whole look. The pretty earrings I wear are one of the prizes, made by Natalee Oodles. Queue Marlowe’s new wild hair inspired me and I posed at one of the eight (!) sims of the Amazon River, created by YT Recreant. It’s another beautiful adventuring spot and open to non-RPers for exploration (though their RP seems pretty darn involved and interesting). Take a ride on the boat on the river and see the lush scenery.

Alexandra

A cute pop song from this year for a cute rock girl look. I am wearing Datrip Blackbart’s new Rockstar outfit, a skirt and t-shirt with a studded belt. The texture-change HUD allows for different shirt sayings and the belt can be switched up in color for different looks as well. I matched it up with the gladiator platform heels Kehl Razor is offering at Frost. It’s a nutty rock n roll look, I guess, but I think it’s fun.

Alexandra

I am wearing this all over the new Maitreya mesh body named Lara. I am still working out how I feel about the body so I will get back to that in another post. I used Umazuma Metaluna’s new applier for the Maitreya body, and it looks fabulous. Ms. Bubbles Clawtooth gave out this gorgeous hair in red and, of course, green as a gift for the holidays. I couldn’t resist matching it to my rock n roll style.

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

It’s been a long, long time
Can’t explain why you crossed my mind
I guess it’s just to say, “Gee whiz, it’s Christmas!”

~ “Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas” by Carla Thomas

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

Gee whiz. It’s Christmas! I have started making massive numbers of cookies and putting them in the freezer (this is my new tradition). Last year I made over 500 cookies. My son and I love baking together and the putzing, making little balls of dough and decorating, is soothing.

Snow has already fallen here several times and it’s pretty chilly so this special gift from TOmmy Fairplay and Shylah Honey for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is welcome. TOmmy made two hairs that you get—one with the darker hat (in the main photos) and one with the lighter (in the top photo). It’s non-rigged so you can resize it (as I did) and comes as a fatpack of HUDs so you get all the colors Damselfly offers. This gorgeous gift can be yours starting today. The KittyCatS community members have also made some gifts “for the cats” as a special treat in the calendar. If you don’t have a KittyCat, don’t worry, you will on the 24th!

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

To match, I put together a casual outfit from several new pieces. First is a great sweater over demin shirt from beanster Potato that comes with one of beanster’s great texture change HUDs for the sweater. My jeans are Datrip Blackbart’s great offer for Winter Trend, available with a HUD that lets you change the texture on the legwarmers. I fit on boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo for the Frozzen Fair that also include a texture-change HUD.

I got my lovely skin during the Skin Addiction Black Friday from Jade Glazner. The skin includes the Slink Physique AND Slink Hands and Feet appliers all on one HUD. (I had to clarify this.) Jade also offers a nail applier for next to nothing and a variety of lipsticks and eyeshadows as add-ons.

Arcade has opened, so the sim is packed and people are camming in to grab goodies. The nice thing about gacha items is that they are no copy, so perfect for stocking stuffing and a great way to “regift” the items you don’t want. I highly recommend the gacha from Cory Edo, which includes a variety of holiday decorations without a rare. I scattered them around me to add a little festivity to the scene. Gee whiz!

Diana, she loves me
No innocence or compromise
Diana, she loves me
The only way she knows

~ “Diana” by Paolo Nutini

Diana

This sexy, sophisticated song seems to match the look I put together for today, so let’s call her “Diana.” First is Harry Hyx’s on spot top, a constructed tunic, sleeveless and belted in front with a graphically appealing open back and asymmetric hemline. This mesh piece is wonderfully rigged and fits very well with a great alpha. Underneath I chose wide-leg slacks from Datrip Blackbart, which he will have at the next Showroom. New boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo, discounted at this month’s Thrift Shop, finish the look.

Diana

Umazuma Metaluna’s newest skin as the most arresting eyes, verging on a beautiful maturity that gives the skin a ton of character and reveals a woman of substance, not just a pretty princess. With Uma’s characteristic sensuously full lips (which I adored with her customizable lipstick from another set), the skin includes a beautiful hairbase and her lush skin tones. Truth Hawks just came out with another wavy long style, with curls corkscrewing down beautifully with his lovely textures. And Maxi Gossamer presents this artistic set of jewelry at Collabor88, a fatpack in one with her texture change scripts.

The Aptitude to Fly

The Aptitude to Fly

“A power of Butterfly must be –
The Aptitude to fly
Meadows of Majesty concedes
And easy Sweeps of Sky -”
― Emily Dickinson

The Aptitude to Fly

The EB Awareness Event started yesterday and was quite a success with a full sim and lots of people shopping. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare disease that affects 1 in 50,000 children born throughout the world as a result of a genetic disorder. It varies in severity among its sufferers. It is characterized by a defect between the anchoring of the skin between the epidermis (top layer of skin) and the dermis (second layer). People who suffer from EB suffer from skin fragility, blistering and constant pain. “Butterfly Children” is what kids with the disorder are called due to the fragility of their skin so a lot of the décor sold at the fair has butterflies on it.

Kaerri Rae has made an entire set of furniture with monarch butterflies as the motif especially for this event with a large chunk of her income going to DEBRA of America. She offers two sets: one in white with dark gray accents and one in dark gray with white accents. Depending on your décor, you can choose a set and use the pieces with your own existing furniture. I set up two little nooks to show the set, and I included a few other pieces that will be sold at the EB Awareness event, including a darling lamp from Plato Novo.

 

 

The Aptitude to Fly

My sweater is also being sold at the event, a generous offer from Parallax Resident. The sweater comes with a texture-change HUD for some great sweater options. I have seen this in the men’s version too and it’s terrific. Portions of the sale of this sweater go to DEBRA of America. My jeans are a pair of great bell bottoms that Datrip Blackbart has at the Vintage  & Cool fair in several colors. My shoes, which I adjusted to my Slink feet, are from Renee Harvy and can be worn without the feet. My handbag is one of the gacha items at Miffhoi Rosca’s kiosk at Season’s Story.

Mochi Milena did an amazing job on the extensive skins she created for this month’s androgynous theme at Genre. I already knew that she put considerable effort into creating options for fembois and women who want cleavage and makeups. I really appreciate that Mochi offers these options to people who want to explore their identity. My hair is Mina Nakamura’s latest for the Dressing Room Fusion and so perfect for the season with a texture change hat as well as the mesh hair. Love this look!

Solitude

Solitude

“Trees’re always a relief, after people.” ~ David Mitchell

Solitude

I am an introvert. I like my alone time a lot. I like quiet. So a walk in the woods is a good thing, and dressed as a woman warrior, I can let my inner fierce out. I dressed this way because two elements I wanted to show: first, these great mesh gladiator sandals with knee pads from Erratic Rain, which she is featuring at Uber. Available in several colors, the sandals are great for any kind of RL or a sexy summer look. My outfit is one of ValentinaEvangelista’s great mesh pieces. She makes her own mesh, and it’s not easy rigging clothes to fit well and also doing the fantastic textures she makes. If you want original mesh, that’s the place to go.

Solitude

The other reason I did this look was to show off Shylah Honey’s hair for We Love Roleplay. Shylah (and her husband Tommy Fairplay) also do all original mesh pieces. This side-swept ‘do comes in 20 shades on their texture-change HUD and includes the feathers on the side, perfect for RP. My skin is Sawsan Secretspy’s exclusive for 24 Squared. She will only be selling 150 copies total and once they are gone, they are gone. The skin comes with a generous number of lipsticks and eye makeups plus freckles and of course, cleavage, so it’s a very unique look for a lucky few.

Pink Punk

Pink Punk

“Fashion is never wrong.” ~ Malcolm McLaren

Pink Punk

A pink punk princess is today’s look, made so by Datrip Blackbart’s fascinating dress made for Fashionart. With a metal framed peplum skirt over a zebra-striped and rose bud black mini, the dress is a juxtaposition of textures and ideas and overall, a success. I love the modified halter top of the dress, the colors, the idea of metals and fabrics and sequins, and yet it all goes together, unified by the color pink. GraceHaddington’s versatile handbag, being sold also at Fashionart, has a 60 Pantone color HUD. Senzati0n Domenitzo is offering these terrific strappy shoes at Fashionart with six colors on the HUD and they fit Slink feet. Yay!

Pink Punk

I dressed up Aleida Rhode’s intense new skin with pretty pink lips and prim glittering eyeshadow from Aida Ewing. (Yes, mesh eyeshadow!) Chiaki Xue’s newest boy hair makes the look with her great pink hairbase. The hair is what turns the princess into a pink punk and makes her sleek and edgy. Poses from Kay Weston from Fashionart give a little room for flair.
