“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.” ~ Garrison Keillor
Today’s KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is a double-whammy of star power. Both Shai Delacroix and Barnesworth Anubis are giving gifts, so make sure you get to the calendar today. Shai has contributed this darling mesh Santa hat, perfect for good girls and boys (and bad ones too). I matched it up with this darling coat from Ivy Burner that she is featuring at Frost, a beautiful piece of mesh work, intricately done with a hood and fur-trimmed cuffs, collar and hem. Ivy has really upped her mesh game and she caters to every applier possible. She is a hard-working lady. I paired it with tights from Lisanna Lauria and great boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo, both also available from Frost.
Barnesworth has made these beautiful sets of mesh frames, 1 land impact with both dark and light frames, which can be modified in size, to change the matte colors, whatever you choose. He has improved the LOD over frames he has made in the past so they render beautifully. I use these frames extensively in my house because, well, I am a shutterbug (duh) and love having a visual reminder of the wonderful times I have had with my friends. The frames are kind of an iconic piece for SL—we are social and we are visual in this world and this piece serves as the perfect container for that.
Shyla Diggs is offering a gorgeous set of skins at The Liaison Collaborative this month and with separate lip tattoos, you get a seemingly endless variety of looks from one small pack of skins. And what a gorgeous set of looks. Ms. Bubbles Clawtooth’s hair fits perfectly under Shai Delacroix’s holiday hat and makes my look pretty and festive.
