My Halloween

My Halloween

Trick or Treat, be so sweet, give me something good to eat!

I was remiss in doing my Halloween blog because, well, 700 kids. Each year when we have trick or treating in my village, tons of kids show up from all over the city to get a treat. (Nice neighborhood, decent sidewalks, kind people.) This year it was easily 700 (guessing from the 12 jumbo bags of candy and box of 250 fun pencils all gone minus the few “quality checks” we had to give the candy). I typically put spooky sounds in the CD player and sit outside for 3 hours to hand out candy until it’s all gone. This year it rained off and on, sometimes pouring, and the temperature was 48, but the kids still came! I was also interviewed for the local TV news. With wet hair and no makeup, I aimed to give the scare to Halloween to the whole city. Here’s a photo of the kids lined up to the sidewalk at my neighbors’, waiting patiently.


The children were so cute! And it reminded me of the KittyCatS CostumeParty set, that has been sitting at my doorway for a good long time, asking for treats! Callie made these kitties based on RL retro costumes—the kind that you and I wore, not our kids. With plastic masks and bright silly costumes, there ARE kittens behind there but first you have to give a treat! They come with a special animation that allows you to ride with them on a broom. They also come with a week’s worth of food and they are collectible cats with the Genesis KittyCats traits, which means they have the potential to pass on their hidden traits like other Genesis cats. They potentially can pop up new hidden traits that can be discovered only through breeding. And best of all, if you breed two CostumeParty KittyCats, you get a special baby. They are transferable as well so if you want to get one for your friend or loved one as a sweet gift, here you go!

The scary thing is they are only available until November 3! Get over there NOW!

Don’t Be Scared

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Don’t Be Scared

KittyCatS has just come out with their Halloween cats, and they are not one bit scary. They are darling! One line is the Scaredy TatS! They are made of textures hand-drawn with pencil and ink by Callie Cline (which I personally saw in Skype in her sketchbook). Because Callie drew them, they have a vibrancy you just can’t get as easily with digital art. These seasonal KittyCats, which are covered in tattoos, also come with a special animation that allows you to fly with them on a broom. They are, of course, breedable and if you breed two of them, you get a special little kitty.

I had to make an appropriately spooky look for these creepy cats, and I started with the stunning Halloween dress from Ariadna Garrigus, which she is selling specially on Marketplace. It includes a pretty dramatic collar and wings (which I don’t show here). I wore it with Maxi Gossamer’s skull and roses jewelry for Collabor88.

Don’t Be Scared

My skin is one of Umazuma Metaluna’s brilliant Lelutka appliers for Collabor88. She offers three and this one was so gorgeously pale with deep ruby lips that I needed to show it. I wore a pair of eyes Uma had offered last year for the haunted holidays and lashes from Thora Charron. My dramatic final touch is Kavar Cleanslate’s wickedly wild hair for Collabor88 with its Tim Burton-inspired bow. Don’t fear—Scaredy TatS are here!

We on Fire

We on Fire

Get up, stand up, throw your hands up
Welcome to the other land of
Dreamers brothers sisters others
Yeah we on fire like that

Oh the bond is deeper than skin
The kind of club that we’re in
The kind of love that we give
Oh ever since the dawn of mankind
We all belong to a tribe
It’s good to know this one’s mine

~ “Fire” by Gavin DeGraw

We on Fire

If you use the Firestorm client, you would have to be blind not to see that it’s the fifth anniversary of the client, quite an auspicious occasion when Jessica Lyon spun the Phoenix viewer off from the original upstart Emerald viewer and then it morphed into the Firestorm viewer. Jessica has managed to imbue the project with kindness, helpfulness, and innovation with her calm and kind leadership.

Once again, the KittyCatS have made a commemorative kitten given out for free that has all the bells and whistles of the regulars ones, including breedability. Click this little darling and you can wear it on your shoulder, hold it in your arms, or cuddle with it. I ran down and picked one up, taking her along for the ride on my Haya 2015 from Turlaccor Mode. I had been noticing awesome photos by Darkley Aeon of these bikes on Flickr and so I got the chance to blog one myself (and will be showing more). Rideable and fun, the bikes also include many poses, effects and of course, exquisitely crafted details, as you can see here. Turlaccor is clearly a motorbike aficionado, with an eye for sexy speed. (All the poses you see me on the bike are unaltered poses included with the bike.)

We on Fire

Of course, I had to look the part and the first item that came to mind were Bax Coen’s smokin’ hot newly redone thigh high boots, which fit perfectly to the Maitreya mesh body. With materials, the metallic books in black are wickedly sexy, especially paired with mesh short shorts from Beanster Potato and a leather vest from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. Paul and Bast also offer a great motorcycle helmet with all sorts of texture options, which I donned as I took my kitten for a ride. (Safety first, right?) My skin is sawsan Secretspy’s newest for the Designer Showcase, a lovely sexy look that comes complete with all sorts of mesh body appliers.

Birthday Buddies

Birthday Buddies

Another year!

Birthday Buddies

The SL12B celebration for the community is almost over but there are still a few days to get some of the great things from the SLBig Hunt and the freebie areas on the sims, including your own KittyCat, made especially for the birthday. KittyCats employed the colors of the logos to decorate the kitties.

I am also using this chance to check the flexibility of Tricky Boucher’s newest mesh bodies. I made my avatar a curvier girl—not in the distorted idea of large butt and breasts and tiny waist but a viably larger girl with full hips and belly, arms and legs. I tried all three bodies on and saw how each could work but the Isis fit best under this dress from Marcopol Oh from Shiny Shabby, which I wore in large. “Fit” means that I could use the alphas in a way that allowed the body to look reasonable and believable with the dress. Freya’s legs were just too thick to work with the dress (though it was perfectly viable). The Venus gave a nice shape too though it seems Isis has a wee bit more booty, which I liked.

Birthday Buddies

I am wearing the absolutely lovely Amelia skin from Shyla Diggs, which looks gorgeous on my fuller face with its lovely features and makeup. Shylah Honey’s darling hair for Fameshed makes my look pretty and classy. I love the curls and the pinned bangs. This hair can easily be retro as well as contemporary. This posing blanket is from Olaenka Chesnokov and will be available for FLF. It has texture change and many cute poses.

A cute necklace and bracelet set from Maxi Gossamer at Uber fit wonderfully as did the initial ankle bracelet from Natalee Oodles from Shiny Shabby, which I had to resize up to fit my ankle and it looks terrific. Glamistry is still making shoes that fit Belleza feet and you can see even with filling out my shape, my ankles look beautiful.

Queen of Love

Today is a big deal. This is my 1500th blog post. Yep. 1500! With each post at approximately 400 words, that’s 600000 words or 2400 pages of writing. (If I were writing a paper, which I am not.) With approximately 4 images per post, that’s 6000 images (though my Flickr says 7861). With about 8 slurls per post, that’s 12000 slurs. And my traffic is almost at 1 million. (Yeah, a pittance in the grand scheme of the internet but still astounding to me.)

That’s why Callie got me this crown. And then she rezzed the new KittyCatS collections. Up top in my teaser you see the KittyCatS! 4th Birthday Collectible CatS. One is given out for free when you click the birthday cake at their sim and the other you get when you hunt for it. The two can be bred to make a special kitten, specific only to these two and both KittyCatS are free.

Queen of Love

The two special Valentine’s collections are the Forget Me NotS and the CupidCatS. Obviously, you can tell which is which, and I love the Forget Me NotS because they have that old fashioned Victorian style. Barnesworth Anubis made the pedestals for the CupidCatS!

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I donned a bra and panty set that LacunaInc has made in red with all the appliers you might need. I am lounging on a special Valentine’s pillow from Cherelle Capra that she is offering at the Color Me Project (where everything is.. well, red.. go figure). And I love Glamistry’s new shoes with color change everything in a funky, stylish design.

Queen of Love

Maxi Gossamer made this lovely locket that is full of a woman’s heart’s delight for Love is in the Air, hung on a beaded chain. And Sawsan Secretspy, the skin maker who never sleeps, has this gorgeous lush skin at the With Love Fair. Umazuma Metaluna is coming out with a new set of eyes for the Cosmetic Fair, and I donned a pair of the sparklers for this look. Finally, I love how Mina Nakamura’s sleek long hair curls around my shoulders, framing my face and making me look like a queen.

Silent Night—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright

~ “Silent Night” as done by the Flaming Lips

(December 24, 1818: Father Joseph Mohr first performed his song Silent Night 196 years ago today. Nearly a century later, in 1914, German soldiers on the Western Front sang the song from the trenches and were joined by their British opponents.)

Silent Night

It’s the final day of the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, and I have to be honest, I am relieved. There were so many beautiful gifts given and I wanted to honor each one in my blog entries, but I am exhausted. Well add to this that I made 13 different kinds of cookies and 4 dozen sweet rolls for Christmas. And bought all the gifts and wrapped them, trimmed the tree, and managed to fit a manicure and pedicure in there.

The final gift of the season is, of course, a KittyCat, and this one is absolutely gorgeous with snowflakes across a midnight blue fur and a snowflake collar. Callie leant me a full grown KittyCat for posing but I couldn’t help but grab my own kitten and birth him. Rodwell sits nicely on my shoulder and in my hand.

I took my kittens to Serene Footman’s gorgeous sim and donned one of Kiddo Oh’s special holiday dresses, the Kafkaesque in white. I think this would be a fabulous wedding dress as well as a formal for the holidays. My gorgeous shoes are new ones from Senzati0n Domenitzo, and will be shown again as I love the styling. The shoes and dress fit perfectly over the Belleza mesh body (I did get the Maitreya but opted to wear this body for less hassle as I rushed to get this blog entry done).

Silent Night

I have used Umazuma Metaluna’s new applier for the body, and it works wonderfully across the whole body, including hands and feet. The match to the system skin is almost perfect. And my skin is one of her lovely skins at the Arcade, which is still open and great for grabbing gifts as all is no copy. Pack your gacha extras in boxes and give them to friends! My updo is one of Mirja Mill’s wonderful new formal looks, this one having her great animation for having it up as I show or down in a ponytail with one click. I love that option! Pretty earrings from Kouralee finish the look.

I hope you, my dear readers, all have a wonderful holiday time, no matter what your beliefs. This darkest of nights in the Northern hemisphere and longest of days in the Southern is a wonderful time to enjoy our families and friends and to indulge the wonderful gifts our lives give us. I would like to thank you for continuing to read my blog and wish you a most beautiful holiday!

Blessings—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

Blessings—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” ~ Charles Dickens


No series of blog posts about the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is complete without an invasion by the KittyCatS themselves. Two new breed lines have been released recently—Rainy Day Dreams with little patridges and pears in the antlers and sELFies, Santa’s little troublemaking helpers. They are plopped all over a great piece of furniture that Debil Skute made for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 8, which includes several great custom poses for men and women. (You don’t need KittyCatS to enjoy the furniture, by the way.)


A green mesh jumpsuit from Cynthia Ultsch is casual wear at its sexiest. All in one piece, the outfit fits and bends amazingly well and comes in curvy as well as regular sizes so if you carry a little extra, you have room to move. Great winter boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo keep my feet warm.

The featured item today is a wonderful necklace made from scratch by Bastchild Lotus. Bast makes jewelry in real life so she brings a sensibility about what looks good and what is possible to her SL jewelry, and this great unisex necklace is no exception. If you look very closely, you can see a beautiful celtic heart finding, a gem, a kitty charm and of course the main piece. The beads are exquisitely textured, all on a resizable leather cord. This piece was made uniquely as a gift for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar so make sure you get your copy.


Truth Hawks recently ended his half off sale (waaah) but has come out with new hair (yay). This windblown style comes with our without a great pompom hat with all his gorgeous hair color textures. I am still infatuated with Syane Cisse’s pretty peachy skin, which I wear here without makeup. Love the delicate way she shows highlights.
