Oh Brother–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea. ~ Dylan Thomas

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

This is my brother. Ok, in RL I don’t have a brother but in SL, I have someone who functions as one. Not in that sticky icky hearts and flowers in my profile way. More like that annoying IM me with foolishness and stupid names like “smeg” and “fart blossom.” The one who will trash me one minute and go after anyone who looks at me funny the next. There is, of course, constant bickering and arguments about who is to do what and when. Like shoveling.

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

Of course, my brother needs to be the one who has to go out to do the shoveling. It’s only fair. The pose set from Kay Weston for FROST is more ideally fitted to him (*cough* no one needs to tell him the shovel position can be modifed).  And of course I can sit by sipping my hot cocoa and watching and tell him where he’s missed a spot. It’s the natural order of things.

Of course, if he was a little misaimed in throwing the snow, it would hit me and get all over my new sweater, the gift Sanura Snowpaw made for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar for yesterday. It includes a texture change HUD so you can wear this snowflake in several colors. My tights are stocking appliers from Ashton Tryce at FROST. They are awesome snowflake tights for any holiday outfit. My little boots are one of Chantal Mynx’s creation for FROST. My brother is wearing a horrible Krampus sweater from Parallax and a matching hat that he got on MP. (Because, you know, no reason to be cute and festive. Always have to bring things down, right?)

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

My brother is wearing today’s KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar gift, a beard from ReishiProphet, available in two styles and several hair colors including a tintable beard. (I tried making it green but, yeah, don’t go there.) This is a tattoo layer and is a gift for MEN, who seem to get short shrift in the gift department in SL during the holidays. He is wearing it over the Emerson skin from ReishiProphet but it can be worn with any skin and look just as awesome.

I am sporting Lara Hurley’s lovely new skin with an included winter blush, which is just lovely. I love the brows, lips, eyes. Well I love it all and it’s fantastic on my system shape. Bubbles Clawtooth is featuring two hairs with texture-change hats at Collabor88 with winsome hair styles. Please note brother and sister have the same eyes from Constance Daehlile. We got them from our dad.

Cookie Time—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 6

Cookie Time—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 6

I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how seriously you approach your whole life. ~ Martha Stewart

Cookie Time

It’s Saturday and I simply don’t want to get up and get dressed. I want to mosey around the house and do housework and bake Christmas cookies in my pajamas, so Ivey Deschanel gave me the perfect opportunity to do so with her pajama bottoms, today’s gift for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. I paired it with the top to an outfit Moonbubble Gothly is giving out as a gift and the grooviest slippers from Parallaxx (they even have paws on the bottom).

Cookie Time

Queue Marlowe recently put out this disheveled up-do, which suits this look ideally with its casual loop of hair and wild tendrils and bangs. My plain but pretty skin is from Syane Cisse, and of course, I pulled out accessories from Redd Columbia, because.. cookies, right? (I have approximately 12 dozen cookies in the freezer already for the holiday. Want to offer me your favorite cookie recipe? I want to get it!)

The Aptitude to Fly

The Aptitude to Fly

“A power of Butterfly must be –
The Aptitude to fly
Meadows of Majesty concedes
And easy Sweeps of Sky -”
― Emily Dickinson

The Aptitude to Fly

The EB Awareness Event started yesterday and was quite a success with a full sim and lots of people shopping. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare disease that affects 1 in 50,000 children born throughout the world as a result of a genetic disorder. It varies in severity among its sufferers. It is characterized by a defect between the anchoring of the skin between the epidermis (top layer of skin) and the dermis (second layer). People who suffer from EB suffer from skin fragility, blistering and constant pain. “Butterfly Children” is what kids with the disorder are called due to the fragility of their skin so a lot of the décor sold at the fair has butterflies on it.

Kaerri Rae has made an entire set of furniture with monarch butterflies as the motif especially for this event with a large chunk of her income going to DEBRA of America. She offers two sets: one in white with dark gray accents and one in dark gray with white accents. Depending on your décor, you can choose a set and use the pieces with your own existing furniture. I set up two little nooks to show the set, and I included a few other pieces that will be sold at the EB Awareness event, including a darling lamp from Plato Novo.

 

 

The Aptitude to Fly

My sweater is also being sold at the event, a generous offer from Parallax Resident. The sweater comes with a texture-change HUD for some great sweater options. I have seen this in the men’s version too and it’s terrific. Portions of the sale of this sweater go to DEBRA of America. My jeans are a pair of great bell bottoms that Datrip Blackbart has at the Vintage  & Cool fair in several colors. My shoes, which I adjusted to my Slink feet, are from Renee Harvy and can be worn without the feet. My handbag is one of the gacha items at Miffhoi Rosca’s kiosk at Season’s Story.

Mochi Milena did an amazing job on the extensive skins she created for this month’s androgynous theme at Genre. I already knew that she put considerable effort into creating options for fembois and women who want cleavage and makeups. I really appreciate that Mochi offers these options to people who want to explore their identity. My hair is Mina Nakamura’s latest for the Dressing Room Fusion and so perfect for the season with a texture change hat as well as the mesh hair. Love this look!
