Beauty–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

Cranes to do not fear horizons
They stretch their wings and fly
Carried by the winds and led by the light,
Look at the sun,
Look at the stars

Let’s see the beauty of it all before the fall
I want it all

“Beauty” by Juliane Gabriel

Beauty--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

My friend Jaynine Scarborough is about to come out with an album that includes several gorgeous songs. Jaynine is a vocal teacher and performer in Berlin, who has, for years, also performed almost weekly in SL at her Thousand Rooms. If you have had the privilege of catching one of her weekly performances, you get to hear a beautiful woman’s voice, full of humor and earthiness and melody and sensuality. The song I link above is absolutely beautiful and the sentiment is perfect this season. Please click!!

I took a walk in a place called My Magic Winter to show off this darling coat from Larcoco Mathy for Shiny Shabby, which opens today. It includes a texture change HUD so you can switch up the sweater, buttons, and the detachable fur collar and cuffs. I wear it with Bax Coen’s newly redone knee-high boots, made specifically for different mesh bodies like the Maitreya Lara, the Bellezas and the Slinks.

Look closely and you can see today’s KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar gift, a pair of earrings custom-fashioned by RL jewelry artist, Bastchild Lotus. With a texture change HUD that allows variations on the metal, the charm and the beads, it’s a terrific gift! Look again and you can see around my neck the cute snowman Abraxxa Anatine has fashioned for the holiday with clickable texture change for the metal and scarf.

Umazuma Metaluna has made this gorgeous applier for the Catwa heads, which I am wearing on the Annie head. With several lip options, it’s a beautiful skin to match this head. (I am wearing it bare because I loved the look without lipstick for this outfit). Viking has made this great braid set for Hairology in several versions for most versatile wearing. With rigged and non rigged pieces, you can select the pieces that fit you best. Included is a great selection of hairbase HUDs for the Catwa head, Omega or TMP.

I have seen Viking’s hair popping up at other events recently so I was glad to get a chance to see their hair at Hair Fair this year and it was a great experience! Choosing three different asymmetrical styles, Viking showed that hair can have variation, even across a similar shape. First long and straight and tied to the side, then a long braid with a full pouf, and finally curly and sexy dressy hair. It was classy enough to wear with Shyla Diggs’ skin and gorgeous drop earrings from Lusciousmami Emerald from the Showroom.

My dress is Dead Dollz featured exclusive for The Epiphany. It’s absolutely gorgeous but a bit complicated and costly to obtain. At this gacha event, players play on the machine as usual taking their chance with commons and rares but once they receive their prize they are given 2 options: open the box or redeem it for Epiphany points. (You only get 30 seconds to decide after you wear the box, so be careful to do this when you’re ready to make such decisions.) If they open the box they can keep the item. If they choose to redeem they exchange it for credit and the item disappears. The credits then compound and you can use them to “purchase” exclusive items that will never be sold outside of the event. A no-trans exclusive item costs 25 points; a trans item is 200 points. This dress is an exclusive item.

Bottom line, if you like this dress, you can purchase 25 common items in the gachas for 25-100L each and if you decide to redeem them all, you’ll end up with enough points to get the dress. Purchase the cheapest gachas at 25L each and you can spend 625L or less, if you get some rares to get it, and that’s true of any of the exclusive items. This dress is worth it. I am not sure all the exclusives are. I am guessing for hard core gacha enthusiasts, the ability to redeem points for duplicates will be a boon (and you can carry up to 100 points over to the next round). For those of us who aren’t hard core, well.. meh.
