That’s not me
I go

~ “How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead

How to Disappear Completely

They were playing this Radiohead song on the stream at Furillen so I thought it was a perfect title for this entry. I put together a sort of eclectic look this time, starting with Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ boho crop top, which they have reconfigured to fit Slink and Maitreya bodies. I matched it with short ruffle tap pants from TheAnnex for The Project Se7en and bowed platform pumps from Darling Monday with optional stockings (that I opted to wear) from Darling Monday, also for The Project Se7en.

How to Disappear Completely

I piled on the jewelry. First I wore Maxi Gossamer’s chic and elegant necklace and earrings for Fameshed. They are delicate but still make a statement. My rings from Aikea Rieko are a perfect accompaniment to my look with their elaborate filigree and gems. You get a HUD that allows you to change up the colors of the separate gems, which I love.

“I usually travel with a posse. I roll deep. I travel like a rapper, but without the artillery. We don’t carry guns, we carry cookies.” ~ Gabriel Iglesias

Rolling Deep

I had my posse with me at the Furillen sim. We rode into town and then parked ourselves by the Airstream Serene has put out (from Wavie Haller—one of my favorites that he made). These “cRaZy lOVe” KittyCats are the other Love Collection pets KittyCats is offering this season and they too include a special animation in them where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend. We rode in on my cycle from Turluccor Mode, a brilliant piece that includes all sorts of fun stuff for riding (lights, engine, turbo) and a huge set of poses and animations for single and couples. And the bike is pretty cute with the purple tank.

The main part of my outfit is, of course, the rockin’ aviator leather jacket from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. As always, Paul has created a solid piece with great style, perfectly fit to the Maitreya body (and others). Bast’s HUD gives a ton of options in colors and textures. I especially liked the tank add-on options with some awesome t-shirt graphics. The jacket, tank and bra come as a complete package with a kazillion options for colors—it’s a very fat fatpack. My short skinny jeans are one of LiuMiwa’s pieces for Shiny Shabby, rolled at the ankle and perfect with Glamistry’s latest bootie, which also includes a texture change HUD for a ton of options. Keon Xenda’s poses show a male model but they were PERFECT for this set of photos (truly—I just positioned myself on the bike).

Rolling Deep

Deesselle Destiny made this sexy skin for the Catwa heads and I chose to dress it up with lipstick from the Catwa HUD and eyeliner from demi Placebo to make this hot tough girl look. I also got to try out Deesselle’s eyelashes for the Catwa head. (Kind of fun just applying eyelashes and not having to fit them into place!) A pretty necklace from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby is a perfect piece of bling for this neckline. I love this haircut from Dubled, which is a gacha at Shiny Shabby. Frankly, you should get all of them because the shortened bangs are darling and the windblown curls are perfect for a girl who just got off her bike.

How Far

How Far

“No matter how far you travel, you can never get away from yourself.” ~ Haruki Murakami

How Far

I took a trip down to Furillen in my traveling outfit, a set of comfortable and subtly sexy pieces from ValentinaEvangelista. The top is a fit-to-form body suit, perfectly made to the Maitreya body. She has matched it with low-slung trousers, barely held up with a belt, quite probably my boyfriend’s pants that I put on as I slipped out the door. With a great texture and wonderfully rendered folds, the pants fit a bit loosely. Thank goodness for the belt. I accessorized with a great tie from Kitt Ragu (I have wanted one like this for a long time!) I love how Kitt always sizes to men and women—it allows a lot of fashion flexibility! Darling oxfords from roscee that include a texture-change HUD so I could mess with colors to match up and a cute little travel case from Zen Zarco finishes me.

How Far

I resized Johnfrancis Laville’s porkpie hat to fit. If you ever check out his store, the man is SL’s milliner for guys, with a variety of amazing mesh hats to complete any look, and most include a resize script. My lovely locks are JourdanMcMillan’s contribution to Hairology this month, and I chose her lightest blond with roots. I spent some time deciding what brow color to choose from Deesselle Destiny’s lovely Catwa applier skin. With freckles scattered over the cheeks, a thick defined brow and a pretty nose, I accentuated my eyes with liner on the applier and slicked on a red lip from Catwa’s HUD. Finally, thanks Senna, for making me find the look!

The Color of Truth

The Color of Truth

“The color of truth is gray.” ~ Andre Gide

The Color of Truth

The season is turning to gray, both at events and on sims. I visited the new Furillen build by Serene Footman, inspired by the RL Furillen hotel, to see a widely gray scene based on the “brutal beauty of post-industry with the natural splendor of Gotland island.” It’s a beautiful place for photoing, of course, and I will probably return again and again as I do with most of Serene’s builds. The Shiny Shabby inspiration theme is gray as well. I wore this darling outfit from Larcoco Mathy for Shiny Shabby, which is a one-piece mesh look that includes a texture change for the skirt, so you purchase the sweater color and you get a variety of skirts to match via the HUD. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s chic boots for Geeks n Nerds keep me safe from the snow while looking chic and Christel Morane’s bucket bag for Boho Culture Fair has a fabulous texture change HUD to mix and match the bag, handle, and ribbon for an ideal look.

The Color of Truth

Shyla Diggs has brought her beautiful art to the Catwa Jessica head and it’s breathtaking. With fine features, luscious lips and Shyla’s absolutely gorgeous eye makeups, the face is transformed and becomes unique. With face framing bangs from one of Kuranosuke Kamachi’s new hairs, it’s a stunningly beautiful look. Bastchild Lotus has made a beautiful necklace for the gachas at the Freak Show, one that comes with a center piece with all the cards of the tarot and if you get one of the two rares, you get a HUD with texture change for the beads AND for the center cards. It’s well worth pumping some change into the gacha to try to get it.

Spring Again

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Spring Again

I know every season Serene Footman changes up his sim at Prides Crossing so I went down to take a peek and I was much rewarded with springtime beauty on the sea. I wandered the grounds, nearly avoided a wild turkey, petted his dog and took a few photos of myself in this lovely dress from Giz Seorn, which she has at Shiny Shabby this month. Available in several colors, the dress combines very real mesh details (not just textures but actual cut out shapes) with a lovely springtime lightness. With a beautifully framed cut-out back, the dress is a must have. I paired it perfectly with flower-embellished sandals from HauteCoutureDesign.

Spring Again

JuneMonteiro brings spring time freshness to Skin Fair with her line of skins that also all come with TMP appliers. She includes four eyebrow options and a ton of luscious lipsticks and glittering eye shadows plus Slink appliers. These skins are truly hand-drawn with elegant features. Truth Hawks has issued a number of new hairs this past week including this side swept look with straight bangs upon which I placed one of Jacinda Jaxxon’s Coachella Bound gacha hair flowers.

Winter Grace

Winter Grace

If you have seen the snow
… somewhere slowly falling
into the brook
to be swallowed by water,
then you have seen beauty
and know it for its transience.

~ “Winter Grace” by Patricia Fargnoli

Winter Grace

I snuck over to Prides Crossing again to take photos because it’s so peaceful there with the falling snow and the beautiful landscaping. I have assembled a comfy look with a great mesh sweater/skirt set from Miffyhoi Rosca, who has made it all one piece in lovely soft pastels. I paired it with great boots that come with a terrific texture change HUD that allows all sorts of variations from Alliana Petunia, which she is selling exclusively at FROST this month.

Winter Grace

Bubbles Clawtooth made this fabulous hair with a knit cowl wrapped around it for Collabor88. She includes a texture change HUD not only for the hair colors but also for the cowl, but I opted for the default white because it suited the outfit. I had purcahsed this great skin from Aikea Reiko during Skin Addiction’s Black Friday and I am first getting a chance to show it. With its warm tones, beautiful brows and fantastic eye makeup, it’s a gorgeous skin for fantasy or for a peaceful walk in the woods.

This is hoping your holiday affords you some time for peaceful contemplation and gratitude.

Silent Night—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright

~ “Silent Night” as done by the Flaming Lips

(December 24, 1818: Father Joseph Mohr first performed his song Silent Night 196 years ago today. Nearly a century later, in 1914, German soldiers on the Western Front sang the song from the trenches and were joined by their British opponents.)

Silent Night

It’s the final day of the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, and I have to be honest, I am relieved. There were so many beautiful gifts given and I wanted to honor each one in my blog entries, but I am exhausted. Well add to this that I made 13 different kinds of cookies and 4 dozen sweet rolls for Christmas. And bought all the gifts and wrapped them, trimmed the tree, and managed to fit a manicure and pedicure in there.

The final gift of the season is, of course, a KittyCat, and this one is absolutely gorgeous with snowflakes across a midnight blue fur and a snowflake collar. Callie leant me a full grown KittyCat for posing but I couldn’t help but grab my own kitten and birth him. Rodwell sits nicely on my shoulder and in my hand.

I took my kittens to Serene Footman’s gorgeous sim and donned one of Kiddo Oh’s special holiday dresses, the Kafkaesque in white. I think this would be a fabulous wedding dress as well as a formal for the holidays. My gorgeous shoes are new ones from Senzati0n Domenitzo, and will be shown again as I love the styling. The shoes and dress fit perfectly over the Belleza mesh body (I did get the Maitreya but opted to wear this body for less hassle as I rushed to get this blog entry done).

Silent Night

I have used Umazuma Metaluna’s new applier for the body, and it works wonderfully across the whole body, including hands and feet. The match to the system skin is almost perfect. And my skin is one of her lovely skins at the Arcade, which is still open and great for grabbing gifts as all is no copy. Pack your gacha extras in boxes and give them to friends! My updo is one of Mirja Mill’s wonderful new formal looks, this one having her great animation for having it up as I show or down in a ponytail with one click. I love that option! Pretty earrings from Kouralee finish the look.

I hope you, my dear readers, all have a wonderful holiday time, no matter what your beliefs. This darkest of nights in the Northern hemisphere and longest of days in the Southern is a wonderful time to enjoy our families and friends and to indulge the wonderful gifts our lives give us. I would like to thank you for continuing to read my blog and wish you a most beautiful holiday!
