Nostalgia--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 7

Who doesn’t like the idea of a Victorian Christmas? A lady waiting for her carriage outside her home, perhaps for a party or clandestine visit to her lover. Luna Barak is offering this gorgeous winter mesh outfit, which includes the draping sleeves, the hair tucked under the hood, and the lovely pattern, at Fair Play, with at least part of the cost benefitting Relay for Life. Luna has always been terrifically generous with her work for that particular charity—she had participated in Fashion for Life when I ran it—and now she is giving this, which includes a great HUD to change the colors of the hair and also change the color of the coat (red, green or white). It’s an absolutely lovely piece and I posed with Olaenka Chesnokov’s lamp post, which includes eight poses and is 100% original mesh from Olaenka’s own self. Since it’s for Christmas on 34th Street, it’s giftable to someone you love or perfect for your own holiday snapshots. (Note, I did change one of the poses using the Avimote Posemaker in order to better show off the coat. Artistic license and all that.)

It *is* the season for giving and today has two gifts from the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. First, Sawsan Secretspy is offering this exquisite lady’s skin as her gift in the calendar. It comes with and without cleavage option and includes this very neutral makeup palette so you can wear it with other makeups. It’s for system bodies, and that is just fine because anyone can wear it then. Julia Merosi, who has gone from creator to KittyCatS lover, made this darling seasonal clutch with berries and beads and a tinsel trimming. Remember: if you miss getting to the Calendar any day, you can get the previous day’s gifts so don’t worry. Though it’s one per avatar, there is ample opportunity to fill your inventory with goodness.

Lothiriel at RFL

Most who have been involved with the RFL agree that the Milan sim is one of the most beautiful of an outstanding group of sims. Reminding people of the grandeur of Italian cities and the beautiful symmetry that lies within, the Milan sim was entirely built by Luna Barak, who as owner of Moonstruck, is also the sponsor of the sim. Let me highlight that sponsorship of a sim means the sponsor pays a pretty hefty fee to occupy the biggest space and to get their name on top. So give Luna some business!

Classic RFL

And let me tell you, you will get your money’s worth if you do. Luna’s day job is a producer of fantasy and RP wear in SL. I am wearing Luna’s offering for benefit of RFL. With its filigreed outer cape and the collaged inner skirt, this dress is a beautiful creation with complex details showing Luna’s amazing skill. She layers pieces on this dress.. as you pull each piece off, you marvel at how she fit it all together, like an amazing 3D puzzle. The bodice is not a system piece as you would guess but an amazingly sculpted front piece with the exquisite vine straps and belt integrated into it. And the colors greet the spring with their glimmering brilliance. It’s just an amazing piece of work all round.

Classic RFL

I styled the gown with one of Tuli Asturias’ great new skins from her Eva line. Every time I don these skins, I gasp at how lovely I look. I have received several compliments. The depth of the eye makeup and plummy tone of the lips on this particular skin compliment the dress wonderfully.

Classic RFL

Lothiriel means “flower garlanded maiden” with loth meaning “blossom” and riel meaning “garlanded maiden.” (from Wikipedia)
