What's New, Pussycat?

When your partner says she has never heard you so “ooey gooey,” and generally she thinks you are cranky, you know someone has hit a soft spot. I was invited to the KittyCatS sim once again, this time to cuddle the little kittens that will be soon be offered for sale. Breedable, holdable and transferable, these kittens are going to become the favored pets of many, including the fashion crowd (can anyone say optional diamond collars with matching jewelry for their owners).

What's New, Pussycat?

Although these kittens can be bred, they are really pets. Furniture, baskets, feeding bowls, even a cute suitcase by Barnesworth Anubis, are all offered as accessories to pamper your pets. They have come up with all sorts of features for breedable owners that make them user-friendly and also the opportunity to make the cat permanent so you don’t have to deal with breeding or feeding.

I got to walk around with my test kitty and take photos. He sat happily in my lap for this shot. I had a hard time handing him back. What is brilliant about the kittens is that they ACT like cats. When I went to click to hold him (you don’t have to “wear” it), he strolled away and then finally decided to come back around to be held—snooty just like a real cat!

What's New, Pussycat?

The textures for the kittens were made by my friendship partner, Callie Cline (which some people had guessed—the eyes are very Callie-like) and the sculpties were designed and sourced by Callie. The scripting was done by Dennis Lagan. Equinox Pinion is also part of the development team. (If those names sound familiar, they are the owners of the Fruit Island Estates, SL’s sixth largest estate.) The team of Callie, Dennis and Equinox did an amazing job of making the kittens catlike. The sweet cuddle animation when you hold the kitten was made by Isabella Baroque.

You do realize I can’t pass on doing a little fashion here. My cute dress with scarf is from Moonstone Eiren, who has a sweet little shop in Caledon. She works hard on her stuff, fashioning each piece with care and artistry. I really like this for the great ruffled skirt. My sexy-as-heck boots are from Gospel Voom, a recent new offering which I will be showing again so I can give them more attention. My hair is from Catwa Clip, a new store for me and offering hair with exciting volume and flexiness. And finally, my luminous skin is from Apple May, and you will be seeing more of this skin. I really really like it.

Little Wing

Well she’s walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that’s running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
That’s all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind.

~Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix (but see Corinne Bailey Rae perform it)

Little Wing

I keep sticking music in my blogs, but I am listening to a lot of it. This song popped up on my radar again recently, and I listened to it over and over while shooting these photos.

The music is so fitting because it is sung so absolutely amazingly by Corinne Bailey Rae, which suits this absolutely amazing dress by Moonstone Eiren. I met Moonstone when she showed up at a thing I did with John Zhaoying and Raven Pennyfeather for Smarter Technology in which we spoke about virtual goods and virtual fashion. Moonstone was psyched about the discussion and peeped in my window, do I look at new designers? Boy, was I glad I said yes.

Little Wing

Moonstone has a small inventory but it’s stellar. Take this sexy dress. Slit up the legs, textured with a sensuous suede in an rich hue, the masterpiece of the dress is the sculpty halter on top, which covers the chest but moves with an avatar brilliantly. The devil’s in the details, and she has a little ties at the hips and on the back of the halter. She also offers some beautiful jewelry sets (I wear a bracelet and earrings you can’t quite see from one set). Make sure when you visit her shop hidden away in the Caledon Moors, you cam up to the third floor to look at her great Poser-based hand-drawn art.

I show the dress with an equally sexy skin from Tricky Boucher. When I want sexy, sunkissed, silky skin, I don his skins. And of course, Queue Marlowe’s loose wavy tousled bedhead. Finally, sexy heels from Babette Ultsch and this look is complete.

Little Wing

When I’m sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
It’s alright she says it’s alright
Take anything you want from me,
