Last Christmas–KittyCatS &Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special.

Last Christmas–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

The jingle jangle of bells in this old Christmas song from my adolescence always reminds me of snow. Gotta love George Michael (and his hair—wow). So I went to snowy Loch Noble to shoot photos of my outfit, which is sort of an awesome look considering the pieces are priced so inexpensively. Well, first there is the jacket which is free in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Sands Leavitt has generously offering this stunning red leather jacket with materials as his little gift to all the calendar clickers, and it comes in several sizes to fit different mesh bodies. Solange Cerveau is offering this itty bitty mini, made to fit several mesh bodies (and it does so on my Maitreya body like skin—not a single clip) for the Winter Gacha Festival. The chain and ornaments around the waist are the “rare” so you can push linden into that machine and always end up with a great prize because the skirt is so great! (And since it’s gacha, giftable. Get one for all your friends!) My awesome hat is Aleida Rhode’s gacha for the Gacha Garden at the Liaison Collaborative. The fur textures are so gorgeous and she has a big decorative safety pin. My long tall boots from Allie Munro are one of her featured pieces for FROST, which has opened. I love their shape and the textures and they are rock bottom priced!

Sawsan Secretspy released this lovely skin with several makeups at the Frozzen Fair. The lips are mostly pastel and the makeups a bit smokier, so the look is very sexy when you combine them together. My hair is naminaeko’s exclusive for Hairology. It comes with or without streaks and in a bunch of fantastic colors as well as “naturals.” I especially liked her “glitter” textures. The hair is low profile so it fit perfectly with a little resizing of Aleida’s hat and the textures looked fabulous.

At Christmas play and make good cheer,

Christmas Cheer

Kimmera Madison passed me her KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar gift a couple weeks ago with a smile—or perhaps it was a smirk—on her face. I opened the gift and carefully composed my face. A colorfully decorated sweater and green polka dotted blouse—how… delightful! This reminded me of so many holidays when my well-meaning but crazy aunt came to the celebration with an ostentatiously-decorated sweater, kittens and gifts knitted into the panels. It was the kind of sweater that could only be worn at this time of the year and only among loved ones where the humiliation would not be too great. Kimmera clearly worked hard on this—she made sure each button was a different color and even the back panel had gifts knitted in. Yep.

So when I had to pull this gem out to blog it, I needed a bit of liquid confidence. Conveniently, Cherelle Capra has made this decorative ensemble for the Black Dot event, a bar that issues white or red wine, a darling “tree” of ornaments and cute wall hanging. I served myself a glass of wine… or two… or three (really I have forgotten), and put the sweater on, donned the included knit cap with kitten ears (of course) and holly earrings, and pulled on Missqwerty Pevensey’s cute skin-tight jeans (hoping the cute butt would add the tiniest amount of sexy to this look). Senzati0n Domenitzo’s great little ankle boots add a pop of color.

Christmas Cheer

Sawsan Secretspy has come out with a new golden skin tone that I have rather fallen in love with and the beautiful makeup is my saving grace for this ensemble as I can look at my face and kind of ignore those floppy ears on top of the cap. Chiaki Xue has generously sent out her holiday gift, this short hair that is conveniently modifiable so I can tuck stray wisps into the cap.

Find Kimmera’s gift—a perfect entry for the ugly sweater contest at your local club—in today’s door on the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. And don’t tell her I suggested it was ugly. She meant well.

Home for the Holidays—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 4

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home

~ “Home for the Holidays,” as done by Perry Como

Home for the Holidays

The big news in my house is that we have 50 pounds of venison in the freezer now. Yep, the man of the house got a ten-point buck, so we’ll be eating meat this winter. I put my foot down about having a stuffed head on my mantel, so this great new piece of art from Tya Fallingbridge, the gift for today in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, is much appreciated. We can still celebrate the hunt without creepy glass eyes looking at us.

And I got all festive for the holidays at home with the Ugly Christmas Sweater from Phunk. (I don’t think it’s THAT bad personally, though some of the textures on the HUD are ones I would not wear personally. Ever. I am not a snowman-on-a-sweater girl.) My jeans with the really nice backend are from beanster Potato and come with a nice HUD for changing the texture. The texture is what makes the jeans, frankly. And Senzati0n Domenitzo’s darling ankle boots fit with these skinnies perfectly.

Home for the Holidays

Bubbles Clawtooth just came out with this darling hat-on-hair that comes with a texture-change HUD for the hat and what seems a thousand great hair textures. (I am exaggerating, but I spent a lot of time clicking.) This darling look is one of my favorite hat hairs of the season! I loved this skin from Syane Cisse on me. It’s plain, indeed, but has a certain sophistication I think could be dressed up or down.
