‘Twas…–KittyCatS &Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

‘Twas the night before Christmas….

‘Twas…–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

It’s actually the day before Christmas and the final day of the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, and you who are fans knows what that means: a beautiful exclusive KittyCat will be given as a gift to all clickers. The lovely Snow Cap is a pretty kitty, and you can birth it like any KittyCat and breed as well.

My wonderful partner designed the coat on the KittyCat and this is what she wrote:

“We love using snowflakes as a way to decorate our winter gift cats. They remind us of the uniqueness of each individual who is in our Second Life Community. Every person we meet, like every snowflake nature makes, is completely unique!

Each snowflake on your special Kitty represents each person you will meet in your life. Every one is different, special, and one of a kind.

You will notice that there is one snowflake on the cat’s body which has a diamond on it. This is the reminder that in a world of snowstorms where you can feel like you are one of many, YOU are unique. The little snowflake in the cat’s ear also has a diamond on it, as a reminder to listen through the noise of life for those special messages that are all around is. And finally, the cat’s eyes shine like diamonds too, a reminder to see the good in each person, and offer them our best, remembering that they too are special.”

‘Twas…–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

I brought her to the Winter Sim at Kalamata for a few photos in my own snow-white outfit. I started with this beautiful knit dress from Ilaya Allen for FROST that comes in several colors and *feels* soft and luxe. Then I added the fur bolero from Kit Ragu for Shiny Shabby, which also comes in several colors as just as a shell as you see here or with a sweater beneath that includes a texture-change HUD. Darling little mittens from PetiteAnaiis Eleonara for FROST include a special body alpha that you wear to allow your arms to show so you can remove your hands (when you are wearing a mesh body). Senzati0n Domenitzo’s thigh high boots are a sexy winter delight for this outfit and also available at Shiny Shabby.

Otyebis has made a lovely skin for Shiny Shabby that can be used on several mesh heads. I tried it on the Logo Alex and was not pleased with the outcome but on the Catwa Annie head, it’s very pretty. I spent a lot of time trying different makeups with it but opted to go with the lipstick in Catwa Clip’s HUD, dialing down the blend a bit. Empyreanforge has made a lovely seasonal necklace for FROST in both gold and silver, a festive look full of charms. Mina Nakamura has this sexy tumble of waves available at Shiny Shabby this round, available in two lengths in the box and with her great textures.

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.

Trouble seems to find me but what can I do?
Maybe that’s because I learned from you.

You’re a freak….

I went over to the beautiful Elysion to take photos of this fabulous new dress from Flutter Memel. Available with three different color choice HUDs, the dress has a great look and fit. I loved wearing it with Maxi Gossamer’s elegant jewelry for Collabor88, which includes its own clickable color change gems and metals.

Freak–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 22

I am ashamed to say, however, I needed to fulfill my mission of blogging every one of the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar gifts, so I snuck on to Elysion wearing Piraiyah Novikov’s gift for today, these adorable monster slippers. If you have ever seen Pira’s avatar in world, you will see that these slippers make total sense. I did match the dress to the slippers, yes. I had to because it’s very important. I am a freak.

Freak–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 22

The other big news of today’s blog entry is the new mesh head from LeLutka named Simone. With an elegant face, fuller lips and high cheekbones, this should get a lot of ladies interested in updating their look. They have also refined the HUD a bit more with additional mouth expressions and eyes that can be changed to accompany smiles or frowns. I wore Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier exclusive for Shiny Shabby on the head to show the beauty of its shape. Tabata Jewell’s stylish hair for Shiny Shabby is my up-do of choice, lending an elegance and sleekness to my look.

Cranes to do not fear horizons
They stretch their wings and fly
Carried by the winds and led by the light,
Look at the sun,
Look at the stars

Let’s see the beauty of it all before the fall
I want it all

Beauty--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

My friend Jaynine Scarborough is about to come out with an album that includes several gorgeous songs. Jaynine is a vocal teacher and performer in Berlin, who has, for years, also performed almost weekly in SL at her Thousand Rooms. If you have had the privilege of catching one of her weekly performances, you get to hear a beautiful woman’s voice, full of humor and earthiness and melody and sensuality. The song I link above is absolutely beautiful and the sentiment is perfect this season. Please click!!

I took a walk in a place called My Magic Winter to show off this darling coat from Larcoco Mathy for Shiny Shabby, which opens today. It includes a texture change HUD so you can switch up the sweater, buttons, and the detachable fur collar and cuffs. I wear it with Bax Coen’s newly redone knee-high boots, made specifically for different mesh bodies like the Maitreya Lara, the Bellezas and the Slinks.

Beauty--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

Look closely and you can see today’s KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar gift, a pair of earrings custom-fashioned by RL jewelry artist, Bastchild Lotus. With a texture change HUD that allows variations on the metal, the charm and the beads, it’s a terrific gift! Look again and you can see around my neck the cute snowman Abraxxa Anatine has fashioned for the holiday with clickable texture change for the metal and scarf.

Umazuma Metaluna has made this gorgeous applier for the Catwa heads, which I am wearing on the Annie head. With several lip options, it’s a beautiful skin to match this head. (I am wearing it bare because I loved the look without lipstick for this outfit). Viking has made this great braid set for Hairology in several versions for most versatile wearing. With rigged and non rigged pieces, you can select the pieces that fit you best. Included is a great selection of hairbase HUDs for the Catwa head, Omega or TMP.
