Strolling--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 18

I took a stroll around Crestwick Island during a nice afternoon. This outfit from Hilly Haalan, made of pieces from her latest collection, show mesh used to its fashionable with a texture-change jacket belted over some terrific slacks. She includes the handbag with the outfit and several other pieces, so it’s quite a great buy. I paired it with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s shoes for Christmas on 34th Street, which keep showing up on my feet because they are sexy and fashionable (and giftable—hint hint, guys). Mea Carnell is selling this great statement jewelry set at Cosmopolitan Room with several variations on the necklace and bracelet for versatility.

My favorite jewelry today, however, are my earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, today’s gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Ava actually offers this pair and another in gold (somewhat different) so you are getting two gifts from a very talented jewelry designer.

Inka Mexicola has come out with this beautful applier for LeLutka mesh heads, and I chose to wear it on the Karin head. I love the shading under the eyes and the luscious lips. I will say I tried the expressions on the head with this skin and they were not doing it for me. The perfect pout is the way to go. Tabata Jewell is offering this sleek full low bun at Hairology. I love the wisps of hair framing the face and the fullness of the style. She is the goddess who organizes most of it so give her some respect when you’re enjoying Hairology.

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!

An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have. ~ Andy Warhol

Bacon

I hope the title got your attention! Art in Hats starts November 1, benefitting the American Diabetes Association via Team Diabetes of SL. I am sure you think, “Why a hat? Where will I wear a hat?” I don’t go to Easter Sunday here in SL and the last really interesting hats I saw in RL were perched on Princess Eugenie’s and Princess Beatrice’s heads. However, if you get past the utility and consider that the designers in SL are creating hats that are a wearable piece of art AND that part of the proceeds goes to Team Diabetes, you might want to purchase a few.

Bacon

For example, Nebraska Oddfish (palomasnow)/Dita Actor made this set of three hats that evoke famous artists (as she literally took “art in hats” to mean she needed to show art.. in hats). One hat, a surrealist’s dream, evokes Salvador Dali with its unexpected eggs and bacon theme. (And you can eat it for breakfast later!) The second reminds us of Andy Warhol’s tomato soup cans. The third is a tempest of stars like Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Made of mesh and the designer’s own textures, each hat is your own piece of wearable art.

Bacon

I decided to don an “artist” look, a Victorian-inspired dress from ValentinaEvangelista for Shiny Shabby which has been fit nicely to the Maitreya body. With Victorian boots from Jackal Ennui, it resembles an outfit a girl in my village persists on wearing (even to Fourth of July—really).  I anticipate she will be attending a school of art and design in her future. My hair is a darling, blunt bang look from Kuranosuke Kamachi for Uber, and I exploited the dipped colors to their advantage. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s applier for the Cosmopolitan Room, which I find absolutely love on this mesh head.

Bacon

Are you having a few issues with some alpha interference around the eyes with this head? Catwa Clip explained to me in Flickr that the eyes have to be modified to be completely sunken for eye depth so the system lashes don’t come through and mess with your makeup. Try this!

A Drop of Happiness

A Drop of Happiness

There will not be a spring without autumn; no taste,
If no sorrow, what taste happiness will provide, say?
If no youth, why then heart will throb; gaily and gay?
Autumn prepares to decorate the heart with haste..

~ from “A Drop of Happiness” by Aftab Alam

A Drop of Happiness

Fall is rolling in with cooler temperatures. The leaves are piling up outside and while the sun is shining, the day is ending quickly now. So it’s important to grab my drop of happiness whenever I can and remember with every fall into winter, there later comes a spring to summer. I have furnished Trace Osterham’s great new skybox with new finds and pieces that I have custom colored using SL’s tinting. Big strategy for me for decorating is using tints on mod furniture and builds. If a piece of furniture is not mod, I am not a happy person. Half of what you see in these photos was tinted that way, including the cushions of Piraiyah Novikov’s daybed available exclusively in his store at Flux Sur Mer. I paired it with ArtizanMesh’s awesome chair for Chapter Four and Sofi Trenkin’s lovely décor piece that I picked up a month or so ago. Clever pillows from Sway Dench’s gacha at Geeks n Nerds add some cute humor as well as Piraiyah Novikov’s fun Simon Says game for Collabor88 on his gothic table for Gothic Diva.

A Drop of Happiness

My dress is Ariadna Garrigus’ gorgeous look for the Boho Culture Fair, which opens tomorrow. She includes the very folk art wedges with them. My bestie is a grayhound from Garvie Garzo’s collection of pups at the Chapter Four. I am so glad to see her in these events because she’s a great artist! Behind me is Tyrek’s collection of potions on a shelf for Chapter Four as well and the awesome RL work of Joe Mainskreet through the avatar hibeebu at Gen Neutral. I saw the pieces on an ad and had to come get a few because they were mounted nicely and fit so well in with the mood here.

A Drop of Happiness

Again, I custom-colored a piece from one of Piraiyah Novikov’s gachas, added Anaisterpellie’s lovely table, candles, and rug for the gacha at The Epiphany, and popped up Joe’s artwork. Again, I have Sway Dench’s darling pillows on the chair (making <3). Below. I custom colored pieces of Piraiyah Novikov’s desk and chairs from gachas at his store (I had a big of a night there with the gachas—everything is so pretty and Piraiyah is smart enough to leave things modify so I can do this) and put my laptop win by Surrealia Anatine from The Epiphany on the desk. My doggie from Garvie, whom I have decided to name Herman, stands close.

A Drop of Happiness

Bubbles Clawtooth just came out with this casual but cute high ponytail with or without bangs (Saturday and Sunday) and I paired it with one of Inka Mexicola’s lovely skins on my own, familiar system face. Both are available at Kustom9. My necklace was a gacha pull at The Epiphany from Isabeau Baragula. First time’s a charm!

The Last Smile

The Last Smile

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” ~ William Cullen Bryant

The Last Smile

Fall came in yesterday just like that. It was balmy out on Monday evening, the air thick with humidity and early the next morning a cold front came through with a storm and chill air and golden sunshine followed it. When I was trying to take these photos and struggling, my friend asked, “What kind of windlight are you hoping for?” I said, “The kind that imbues the scene with sunlight filtered through a thousand autumn leaves, tinting everything with a nostalgic depth and laying upon it its honeyed warmth before the chill winter winds descend.” He sighed. “Try ‘Sunset.’”

My dear friend Sabein Streeter, helped me set up my autumn house, which I will be photoing in pieces because she jam packed it so full of goodness, and I can’t cover it all in one blog. Her wonderful decorating sense was assisted by the many beautiful décor items available this month at Shiny Shabby. We start, of course, on the back stoop, where we find leaves have covered the area via Kunst Himmel and a cart of gourds, courtesy of FadeArcade. A cozy rocking chair from Marinestella waits for a friend to sit but I have just finished riding my bike from Danielestro and am about to go inside. The house? Barnesworth Anubis’ beautiful cottage for Collabor88, more of which you will see in the next days.

The Last Smile

My outfit is a combination of fall and summer. A warm but sexy middriff-skimming sweater from Kiddo Oh at Tres Chic tops short shorts from xxxsaltandpepperxxx, available at the Cosmopolitan Room—both mesh. Long socks from Roslin Petion for My Attci and great little boots from Darling Monday at Shiny Shabby complete the look.

I want to highlight the berries in my hair—a lovely hair pick from Abraxxa Anatine, featured at the Cosmopolitan Room. I pushed it into my hair in front, a celebration of the fruits of fall. The pick has a color change menu on click and is exquisitely crafted in mesh, but not rigged so you can move it around and resize or copy and wear multiple. My hair is one of the wild fusion shades from Kavar Cleanslate, his contribution to Fantasy Collective. And once again I wear Catwa Clip’s lovely Jessica mesh head with a beautiful skin applied from Inka Mexicola , both available at the Cosmopolitan Room.

We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost. ~ Henry Rollins

Warm Winds

The evenings are still balmy here, which is fine with me because I am not looking forward to winter at all, especially as it’s been the past two years. So a stroll outside on one of the last warm evenings of the year is in order. Poulet Koenkamp’s sexy top with optional bolero comes with a texture change HUD for the bolero (which can be made invisible), the top, and the chain decoration. And unlike many creators, Poulet is not afraid of prints, creating a gorgeous satiny texture for these tops. I paired it with the leggings from Kiddo Oh’s new outfit for The Secret Affair, which I am sure she envisioned as more a fantasy look but I loved them as just wearable leggings, especially since they were made for the Maitreya body. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s great heels for the Body Modification Expo and Mea Carnell’s fall-themed leafy necklace for the Cosmo Room complete the look.

Warm Winds

I ran to Kustom9 to try to rescue a lady from a life of slavery to the gacha for the pieces from helloaiko. I did not get the rare she wanted but I did get some others, including this cute little kitty backpack. Another great find from Kustom9 is this skin from Inka Mexicola. I am thrilled to see her putting out new skins and this one is exquisite with its sophisticated brow and youthful glow. Kuranosuke Kamachi has put this sexy casual hair in her store, versatile for many looks.

shopping chance: the chance of finding something magnificent on a shopping trip when you need nothing at all ~ Urban Dictionary

Chance

Threw my purse in the car and took off shopping. It’s just one of those days when I hope I might find a perfect something by chance, a sort of psychic gacha. I know I had lucked out yesterday with this gorgeous dress from StellaJane that includes a texture change HUD with a ton of gorgeous east Asian silk textures (like nothing I have quite seen before in SL). Lush and beautiful, I could choose a number of different looks off the one HUD at a great price. I loved how she got the texture so satiny with perfect proportion. I paired with it Glamistry’s new strappy platforms, sexy and simple with his great texture change HUD to control different parts of the shoe. Lovely earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, a great find from On9, and my Arcade gacha handbag from Fashionboi Landar, and I was set to shop ‘til I dropped.

Chance

Inka Mexicola will be releasing a set of makeups on a medium01 skin for the Cosmetic Fair. They are lovely and compliment different looks without being too outre as some gacha skins can be. My hair is Shylah Honey’s lovely side-parted and brushed look for Tres Chic, which is opening in a couple days. I love these pretty blue eyes from Audrey Lamede from The Men’s Dept. (Yes, eyes are unisex—”pretty” on women and “handsome” on men.) I rode in style at !ndustry with Wavie Haller’s rockin’ convertible from the Arcade.

In the Sea

“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.”

~ e.e. cummings

In the Sea

The theme for Enchantment this month is “The Little Mermaid,” and blessedly, instead of being inspired by a copyrighted cartoon, most designers opened their minds to sexier and more ethereal sea creatures. Kiddo Oh is presenting this seemingly basic black dress. I say “seemingly” because she has cleverly crafted the texture and dress so it’s beautiful even as you move into different poses (I am using Vestige Creations here). She has also textured the inside of the dress with a lovely purple so that you see peeks of it when you move. That’s craftsmanship, especially with the coordinating tentacle bracelets. You might think it’s just a black dress, but dress it up and it’s so much more, especially when you wear something as detailed as Mea Carnell’s exclusive for Enchantment, this lovely mermaid motif choker.

In the Sea

Inka Mexicola offers a beautiful new skin for Enchantment this month with subtly glossed lips and beautifully lined eyes. I paired it with Mina Nakamura’s windblown-hair from Kustom 9 in a fantasy white with dark roots. The curls provide movement without being a one photo look—you can actually wear this hair around and not look like it’s stuck in position!

“I dream. Sometimes I think that’s the only right thing to do.”~ Haruki Murakami

I Dream

What a dream of a dress this beautiful mesh set from Kiddo Oh is. Besides the beautifully done mesh, the colors that fade into each other makes the dress absolutely gorgeous. Kiddo has attended to every detail, creating a top that has a sexy midriff-baring shape with a sparkle across the texture’s surface and a skirt that has a perfect flare at the bottom. This outfit is available at FashionTropic for a few more days so grab it.

I Dream

I donned this beautiful look with one of Inka Mexicola’s lovely new skins. With a dew-kissed sheen and a gorgeous lip, it’s perfect for this dreamy look. Add Kavar Cleanslate’s gorgeous long hair with bangs for Collabor88 (which I show in one of his fantasy shades), and you get a complete dream-induced look.
