The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. ~ Roseanne Barr

Taking It

I got my slave boy out (my male alt) and dressed him up for today’s photos because there were some great poses from Olaenka Chesnokov and Luna Jubilee and other things at ROMP I found, and I was loving my look. Start with this top from Annette Voight from ROMP, which I paired with a skirt from an outfit ValentinaEvangelista recently came out with and boots from Saki Galiazzo. Then I found these fishnet appliers from Bax to pull together the look. Mr. Alt has the sexy collar from Cheerno Destiny at ROMP and a harness that Baileymonster featured at ROMP a couple rounds ago and now has in her store. I think I made him into a right sexy pet.

Taking It

My skin news for today is Dam1710’s applier for the Catwa Annie head, a beautiful east Asian look that went on beautifully and takes Catwa’s makeup options quite nicely. I was pleased with the look of the skin on the face and body and look forward to seeing more of David’s work. My hair is a short unisex cut from Dura that just topped this look perfectly and added a sexiness to my girl that went beyond bows and ringlets.

Digging Out–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 3

Digging Out–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 3

“The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.” ~ E.E. Cummings

Digging Out--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 3

Callie told me the KittyCatS Winter Wonderland was an editor pick in the Destination guide. She was excited because there was beautiful fresh snow fall at the sim so everything was glistening and white. I freaked. See, Callie is from Calliefonia (her spelling, not Jerry Brown’s), and she really has no concept of snow or snow management. Where I am from in the hearty northern midwest, snow needs to be displaced as soon as it falls to prevent slipping, sliding, tripping, icing, and resulting lawsuits. You must immediately get out there and shovel it away. So I put on my fringed jacket from Paolla Flux that I got at Shiny Shabby, pulled on my jeans from Hilly Haalan (skin tight, baby) and boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo from Shiny Shabby. I whipped out the shovel I got at the Tannenbaum Market from Redd Columbia (she’s back!) and took advantage of the shoveling animation.

Digging Out--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 3

Thank goodness Tommy Fairplay and Shylah Honey are giving out this hair for men and women in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. It’s great for men or women and includes ALL the hundreds of colors they make in hair and a separate HUD for change the texture on the beanie. And it’s warm! Umazuma Metaluna has made a set of luscious skins for the Arcade that include the sort of seasonal sparkle you need for a fashionable look.

Get to the KittyCats Winter Wonderland to hit the calendar for this great hair, see the sights, ride the carriage and skate, and rest assured—the walk is shoveled. You won’t slip.

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

It’s been a long, long time
Can’t explain why you crossed my mind
I guess it’s just to say, “Gee whiz, it’s Christmas!”

~ “Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas” by Carla Thomas

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

Gee whiz. It’s Christmas! I have started making massive numbers of cookies and putting them in the freezer (this is my new tradition). Last year I made over 500 cookies. My son and I love baking together and the putzing, making little balls of dough and decorating, is soothing.

Snow has already fallen here several times and it’s pretty chilly so this special gift from TOmmy Fairplay and Shylah Honey for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is welcome. TOmmy made two hairs that you get—one with the darker hat (in the main photos) and one with the lighter (in the top photo). It’s non-rigged so you can resize it (as I did) and comes as a fatpack of HUDs so you get all the colors Damselfly offers. This gorgeous gift can be yours starting today. The KittyCatS community members have also made some gifts “for the cats” as a special treat in the calendar. If you don’t have a KittyCat, don’t worry, you will on the 24th!

Gee Whiz—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 2

To match, I put together a casual outfit from several new pieces. First is a great sweater over demin shirt from beanster Potato that comes with one of beanster’s great texture change HUDs for the sweater. My jeans are Datrip Blackbart’s great offer for Winter Trend, available with a HUD that lets you change the texture on the legwarmers. I fit on boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo for the Frozzen Fair that also include a texture-change HUD.

I got my lovely skin during the Skin Addiction Black Friday from Jade Glazner. The skin includes the Slink Physique AND Slink Hands and Feet appliers all on one HUD. (I had to clarify this.) Jade also offers a nail applier for next to nothing and a variety of lipsticks and eyeshadows as add-ons.

Arcade has opened, so the sim is packed and people are camming in to grab goodies. The nice thing about gacha items is that they are no copy, so perfect for stocking stuffing and a great way to “regift” the items you don’t want. I highly recommend the gacha from Cory Edo, which includes a variety of holiday decorations without a rare. I scattered them around me to add a little festivity to the scene. Gee whiz!

Happy Halloween!

I had the lucky fortune of being asked to do photos for the SL splash page and Marketplace for Linden Lab. They chose two photos, and I think it’s only fair to give credit where credit is due on the great content I used to put them together.

“You and I are in a world without boundaries and our spirits flow in it like ink blots on damp paper…”

~ quoted from “Transcending Borders” by Tutsy NAvArAthnA

S/He

My pal, Tutsy Navarathna, has been a resident of SL for quite a while and has tackled a few of the issues of virtuality that we all experience. His latest movie, “Transcending Borders,” looks at gender and attraction. Besides showing the beauty of SL so evocatively, it has a great ending! (I just want to note that Tutsy makes these amazing machinima from his home in India with the crappy internet that is inherent with living there. Bow before his amazing skills!)

Meanwhile, Genre has taken on the theme of “Androgyny,” which dovetails nicely with my recent online series obsession, “Transparent,” on Amazon. It’s a full-on examination of the many flavors of being sexual and gendered with the common issues of family dynamics, living in LA, growing up, being Jewish, and love, of course. I highly recommend it.

The suit I am wearing, from Poosykat LittleBoots, is the ideal look for a “low femme,” as one of the characters in “Transparent” labels this. This tailored suit is full mesh and fits perfectly. Platform heel boots from ThePierrot complete the look And I chose a neutral polish for my nails from Giela Delpaso.

S/He

A short men’s cut from TOmmy Fairplay is perfect for this look. With a long top that is insouciantly swept back and a great hairbase, the hair is ideal for men but really suits me too, and is one of his featured looks at The Liaison Collaborative.

The best part of the look is Mochi Milena’s skin, one she made just for this round at Genre. Supplied with the skins, of course, are all the appliers you might need but she also gives you a variety of cleavages from completely male to buxomly female with boi and girl in between. She also provides several shapes, which transform the skins from softly masculine to nicely feminine. I wore it on my shape as is, and it made an ideal look. Mochi also includes a bunch of makeups to femme up your look. If there ever was a skin to explore the spectrum of sexuality and gender representation, this is it.

Solitude

Solitude

“Trees’re always a relief, after people.” ~ David Mitchell

Solitude

I am an introvert. I like my alone time a lot. I like quiet. So a walk in the woods is a good thing, and dressed as a woman warrior, I can let my inner fierce out. I dressed this way because two elements I wanted to show: first, these great mesh gladiator sandals with knee pads from Erratic Rain, which she is featuring at Uber. Available in several colors, the sandals are great for any kind of RL or a sexy summer look. My outfit is one of ValentinaEvangelista’s great mesh pieces. She makes her own mesh, and it’s not easy rigging clothes to fit well and also doing the fantastic textures she makes. If you want original mesh, that’s the place to go.

Solitude

The other reason I did this look was to show off Shylah Honey’s hair for We Love Roleplay. Shylah (and her husband Tommy Fairplay) also do all original mesh pieces. This side-swept ‘do comes in 20 shades on their texture-change HUD and includes the feathers on the side, perfect for RP. My skin is Sawsan Secretspy’s exclusive for 24 Squared. She will only be selling 150 copies total and once they are gone, they are gone. The skin comes with a generous number of lipsticks and eye makeups plus freckles and of course, cleavage, so it’s a very unique look for a lucky few.
