There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can’t prove that there aren’t any, so shouldn’t we be agnostic with respect to fairies? ~ Richard Dawkins

KittyCatS recently came out with a new line of kitties that are based on fantasy with unicorn horns. Called KittyCornS, they are darling little kitties with great patterns and a sparkling horn. KittyCats has even made two that are tributes to David Bowie and Prince (see the “Purple Rain” kitty below). When you breed two KittyCornS, you get a special kitten!

Believing

Of course, this fairy is dancing through the fields when she comes upon these magical KittyCornS. She kneels down and finds they are sweet and gentle and just as fantastic as she is. It seems the theme for Enchantment this round has inspired many creators, including Erielle Deschanel and Mariska Simons, who made this fairy-themed lingerie with matching wings and headpiece. The wings and headpiece come with comprehensive HUDs that allow you to switch out colors on the tendrils, flowers, etc. The lingerie comes with a lace bodysuit (great lingerie on its own or with another outfit) and the beautifully fit corset and skirt (which are separate pieces for mix and match with other outfits too). I accessorized with Mea Carnell’s darling daisy jewelry and flat sandals from Senzati0n Domenitzo, also featured at Enchantment.

Wavy curly fantasy hair is Luka Hauster’s perfect offering for Hairology. With knotted bits and gently waves flowing down, it’s a gorgeous look for my fairy, especially with Umazuma Metaluna’s skin applier on the Karin head from LeLutka for the Ultra Event. I added Monicuzza Babenco’s fantasy lipstick, the rare prize at the Gacha Garden, to light up the pink in my look.

Morning Ablutions

Morning Ablutions

Every day I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful. ~ Prince

Morning Ablutions

A quiet morning is a good way to come out of sleep and into a peaceful day. I enjoyed this morning with Froukje Hoorenbeek’s new galvanized bathroom set for Shiny Shabby. Coupling the most cutting-edge PG and Adult animations with the loveliest fixtures on the market, Froukje’s bathroom set creates a spa in SL. Of course, you see me taking both a bath and a shower because I needed to show these beautiful pieces in action. Sheerpetal Roussel’s rustic cottage for Shiny Shabby is the perfect setting for retreat and peace.

Morning Ablutions

One of the great parts of Shiny Shabby is that you can get both clothing and décor. Paco Pooley made a set of music-related planters for this month’s event, including this drum filled with flowers. Hanshan Instrid created a gacha of lovely nature-based pieces including the artwork you see on my walls and the bench beside the tub. Kunst Himmel also enjoyed a garden theme with planters and the little watering can you see. And Artizanmesh has created spring seedlings for my windows. Qo0op has blessedly made her rugs for Shiny Shabby modifiable. That’s really important to someone like me, who likes to color pieces. Who wants to live in an all gray environment?

Morning Ablutions

Nicole Button is going crazy with appliers lately, enjoying the many mesh heads on the market and creating beautiful looks for them. This beautiful face with fine features and full luscious lips is available in her store with her updated body appliers. (Make sure you get the new ones for perfect match.) An updo from Kuranosuke Kamachi for Uber is a lovely look for my morning ablutions. And Mariska Simon’s lingerie appliers get me dressed to feel sexy all day.

To Seduce

To Seduce

It is not enough to conquer; one must learn to seduce. ~ Voltaire

To Seduce

I am guessing that Voltaire was suggesting in his quote something more about winning the hearts and minds of the populace but I think the suggested double meaning has great play for this set of photos, which I took at Corruption. (Thank you again for selling group membership to allow rezzing.)

To Seduce

Mariska Simon’s new lingerie is based on appliers, and Mariska has done a wonderful job of lining up seams and making the translation of image to seduction magic. I have tried on several lingerie appliers that have bad seams or simply don’t wow me, but Mariska’s is top notch from the straps to garter straps. And she attends to all the details, which is part of any good seduction, including the styling. The balconette bra barely gives a glimpse of the nipples and has an intriguing lace racer back. Platform show girl shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo, which she is featuring at On9, and Maxi Gossamer’s dreamy drop of pearls and starburst earrings and ring for Collabor88 complete my look.

To Seduce

Sawsan Secretspy has recently release a slew of new skins for events and this lovely look is her featured item for Black Dot. It’s simply a Catwa applier without makeups included, but I took advantage of the lipstick colors Catwa includes in the HUD to tint up my lips. (The liner comes with the skin.) Bubbles Clawtooth’s lovely long locks for Collabor88 finishes my look with their elegant volume and her gorgeous textures.

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
~ Mary Oliver

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

I wanted to find a beautiful fantasy area for a sort of sexy snow queen and her pet and the Winter Sim at Kalamata fit the bill perfectly. My snow queen is a sort of sexpot too, so lingerie from Mariska Simons for Christmas on 34th Street made complete sense. A combination of a mesh corset and appliers makes the outfit beautiful and elegant, and it’s giftable so you can give it to a loved one or friend for the holiday. It also comes with a complement of jewelry, including the lovely crown I am wearing.

I did not wear the other jewelry because I received this beautiful gift from Belle Roussel for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, a set that includes a necklace, bracelet and earrings. The set also includes a texture change HUD so switch up various parts of the jewelry to match your outfit. I chose the ruby and pink because I wanted it to stand out on in this look. I really like it because it’s a very versatile and simply elegant set that could go with many looks. And I love how the bracelet hangs around the wrist with the heart-shaped charms dangling. It’s a fine set of prettiness for your holiday.

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

Today is the last day of this round of Shiny Shabby and Marcopol Oh has this beautiful applier on sale at the event so run over there now to get it. It comes with several eye makeups and lipsticks in his singularly elegant style. My hair is Kavar Cleanslate’s gorgeous new ‘do for Collabor88, a face-framing style with a great low profile so one can wear hats or crowns.

Merry Christmas baby
You sure did treat me nice, oh ooh, yeah, yeah
Said uh, merry Christmas baby oh

You gave me a diamond ring for Christmas
Now I’m living in paradise, oh

Merry Christmas, Baby

Well it’s turning out to be kind of a sexy holiday for me with the gifts from the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. Today’s gift is a case in point. Mariska Simons has given her considerable lingerie design skills to us with this delicious lingerie set that comes with system layers and Omega appliers. I applied it to the Maitreya body, wore the little bows, and boy, Santa’s going to want to treat me nice. With high heels from Glamistry, it’s a look destined to make me the best Mrs. Claus Santa ever did see.

Merry Christmas, Baby

Silent Alchemi has this gorgeous skin for sale at his place with Omega body appliers. With glossy red lips (sticky from my candy cane), it’s a sexy look, especially peeking from the sideswept hair from Shylah Honey that she is offering at this month’s Hairology. And how do you like my settee from Piraiyah Novikov. It includes single sits and couples’ sits.

Infinity

“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” ~ Stephen Chbosky

Infinitely

Art in Hats, benefiting the American Diabetes Association, opened with a plethora of headwear for the stylish avatar, including this hat shaped in a bent lemniscate, which resembled to me, the infinity sign (∞). It’s an elegant, chic headpiece that combines well with the straps echoed in my dress and shoes. The dress, which is an attempted fit to the Maitreya body (close enough), is one of Mariska Simon’s newest, with a lace tied back and a great number of colors for your choice of sexy club wear. The glass platform heels from Azlyn Vaher include a HUD that allows the heart enclosed in the glass to be turned off or on and a sexy tied ankle.

Infinitely

Mea Carnell’s beautiful leather flowered necklace provides a soft point to another otherwise sort of extreme look. I applied Aida Ewing’s recently LeLutka applier release, chose her chic eye and lip makeup and then used Thora Charron’s great hairbase applier and ponytail to complete this very sleek, very chic look.

The Waiting

The Waiting

“Am I in love? –yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn’t wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover’s fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.” ~ Roland Barthes

The Waiting

The lover who waits. She bathes, dresses, and listens to the soft music, expecting her lover. Her chosen lingerie is, of course, from Mariska Simons, the queen of lingerie in SL, who is now converting some of her older pieces and making all of her new pieces with appliers. This outfit, which includes appliers for every body you can imagine as well as Omega, is a case in point of sexiness combined with new technology. Paired with Darling Monday’s shoes for the Mix Event, it’s a bold but sexy look. Lounging on Cory Edo’s modernist furniture for Uber makes the wait more comfortable.

The Waiting

Her skin is a combo of Aleida Rhode’s newest skin available at her mainstore with appliers for everything but the kitchen sink with eyeshadows from Izzie Button and lipstick from Carrie Janick. I am kind of digging the ability to mix things up this way on the LeLutka mesh heads, though I will say it was a bigger challenge finding eyeshadows I liked. I loved these dark eyes from Eleri Catlyn for my waiting woman. I wish more creators made darker, rather than lighter, eyes. Thora Charron’s long wavy sexy new hair in a bold color is the crowning touch.
