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

Believing

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.

Believing

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.

Amble out for love”

KittyCatS has recently released the Maneki Dreams KittyCatS, a special line that they made with an East Asian theme. Each one has a different name, which you can find on its breastplate and its package, and if you look closely, the word dream is shown in Japanese on their fur under the flowers. Best of all, if you mate two of these pretty KittyCatS, you are guaranteed a MegaPuss with a special Maneki design of rainbow flowers on a black coat (it’s gorgeous). I took the kitties over to the Tatakai Tochi sim to photograph them wearing this darling dress from Culco, that she is featuring at the Color Me Project. If you look closely, the skirt is a bit translucent. I love the use of the kimono texture. I paired high heel mary janes from Glamistry with the look, a touch of innocence with wickedly high heels.

Deesselle Destiny has made some lovely applier skins, and this one is no exception with a gorgeous blush and optional eye liner and lipsticks for the Catwa heads. I believe she made it for another head but I think it looks fantastic on the Candy head. I found one of the gacha headpieces from SinfulSky for MadPea, which is featured at the Gacha Garden. AvaGardner Kungler is featuring this stunning necklace at On9 this month in several colorways. Hairology is open and MissAllSunday Lemon, the goddess of cranking out quality hair, has this darling side bun hair as her featured look this month.

~ “Daydreaming” by Radiohead

Daydreaming

Radiohead came out with a new album this weekend, which was a great Mother’s Day gift for me as I am a big fan (though not as big a fan as this guy). My favorite so far on the album  is “Daydreaming,” though that could change. The title inspires my photos with an outfit I put together with several new pieces. First, the Mesh Body Addicts event is opening tomorrow, and Doc Eldritch, who is seriously old school SL and has been clothing avatars since almost the beginning of grid time, has created this darling top and sweater set with a HUD that allows you to switch colors and switch off the tank. It’s perfect for a spring walk. Then I get a little more clubby with a metallic mini skirt from Ariadna Garrigus that she just released and Bax Coen’s fabulous iconic metallic boots, remade to fit to different mesh bodies.

Daydreaming

My gently wind-tossed waves are Bubbles Clawtooth’s contribution for this round of Collabor88, a beautiful casual asymmetric look. My skin is Umazuma Metaluna’s newest look for the Chapter Four, which I opted to wear on the Sarah head from Catwa Clip. I can’t seem to get over Uma’s gorgeous eyes, and the hazel color of this set compliments my look perfectly. My nails are Bcreative Wilde’s contribution to the Mesh Body Addicts event and my funky jewelry is Maxi Gossamer’s set for this round of Collabor88.   I am strolling at the So caL sim, a residential spot completely decorated by Beloved Ruby. (Yes, you can photo here and live here too!)

Optimist

Waiting, but I don’t mind
I’m all bus stops and heat
I’m neon in your daylight
I’m the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

~ “Optimist” by David Byrne and St. Vincent

Optimist

When you see the buds on the trees, Radiohead drops a new song, sunshine arrives, you can’t help but be an optimist. I put together a casual, about-town outfit and strolled the streets of St. Pete’s City. My top and jacket are Ariadne Garrigus’ newest separate with a texture change HUD for the top and sweatshirt. She gives you a ton of cute patterns and solids for the top. I matched them up with the funky harem-style pants from AscendSL that comes with a color-change HUD and bejeweled sandals from Lilo Denimore, both featured at Shiny Shabby. Aikea Reiko has a selection of darling embossed handbags and Empyreanforge has a terrific bracelet set with texture change HUD at Shiny Shabby.

Queue Marlowe is bringing this great ponytail back from the Fantasy Faire and putting it in her store soon. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s generous group gift for the Essences fans, a system skin with all the beauty we are accustomed to from Inka. And I am totally in love with these gorgeous eyes from Audrey Lamede for Cosmopolitan Room.
