In the hood

… a new release I couldn’t resist.

In the hood

New hair, with hood, with kitty ears… I tried to resist, honestly… Really, I did! Just not for a very long time… (Thanks again for the heads-up Xaqueline!)

I tried, for possibly the very first time, to do a close-up. I did make some attempts before, but for some reason my pictures just never came out right, and I deleted them immediately. Turns out that it wasn’t my fault, but a peculiarity of Second Life itself, as explained in this blog post. Pretty amazing how you can be in SL for years, and still learn new things.

In the hood details

Anyway, I also decided to get myself some of Slink’s mesh hands. They have been out for a while, but I still hadn’t decided if I really needed them or not. But since avatar hands look so bad (and I was tired of editing them in pictures to look good), I got them anyway. Still not sure if I made my hands large enough though…

Sweater Cat

… a Look of the Day.

Sweater Cat

Lately I’ve been spending a lot less time inworld. This has happened before in the almost 6 years I’ve been in Second Life now. There are months where I spend loads of time online and months where I log in… and log out again. Right now, I log in, feed my (greatly reduced in numbre btw) herd of cats, read notices… and log out. Or SL logs me out, that happens a lot too.

Basically, what I’m saying, is that the blog might be a bit more quiet from now on. I’ll be around though. I’m still enjoying SL and blogging too much to say goodbye to it completely!

On to what I’m wearing. Well… it’s a sweater with a cat on it. I couldn’t resist. I apologize.

You might also be wondering why my tail is wrapped around my leg (probably not, but I’ll explain anyway). It’s a new rigged-mesh tail I bought at the SL Marketplace. It looks a bit weird when you’re simply walking around, but for pictures I do think it works. Especially because in the pose I was using here, my normal tail disappeared into the wall.

The tail comes in a black and a white version and it’s mod, so you can tint it. Which is exactly what I did.

  • Hair – pr!tty (karla.marama)
  • Skin – the body co. (thebodyco.resident)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Eyelashes – Maxi Gossamer (maxi.gossamer)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Neko tail – Hyperborea (serbitar.nemeth)—>@SL Marketplace
  • Sweater – Le fil cassé (jacinda.jaxxon)
  • Tights – JANE (janie.marlowe)
  • Shoes with socks – Heart & Sole (bijoux.lefavre)—>Store closed
  • Pose – aDORKable (adorkable.peapod)

Spots and Stripes

… time for a Look of the Day.

Spots and Stripes

I have, again, been making attempts to clean out my inventory. So far I have sorted a lot of stuff, but haven’t actually deleted anything. So mixed results really.

Anyway, while digging through both old and new stuff, it all came together in this LOTD. The new thing of note, are the neko stripes. They are from c( Two Cats one Cup), which is a new store, so there aren’t many items for sale yet. It’s a collaboration between Ingkeu Soonkyu of Bobtails and Sei Minuet of Lemon Tea and is located on the floor above these stores.

The Cat Lady

… inspired by pipe smoke.

Catlady

I hate smoking in RL. It’s unhealthy, it stinks and apparently costs loads of money too. But SL-smoking has, of course, none of these problems. So I had no problem getting inspired by this japanese kiseru pipe.

Fellow-blogger Nicandra Laval used this pipe in the Panties for Luna photoshoot. But it was only when she posted her look on her blog, that I noticed it had a cat on it! And of course, if it has a cat on it, I need to have it.

Panties for Luna

… a thank you post for Luna Jubilee.

PantiesforLuna1

After being our leader through two years of color challenge, we really couldn’t say goodbye without doing a surprise thank-you post! It was Eliza Quixote who got a bunch of us together for a photoshoot… in our panties… obviously. Because we all know Luna very regularly only made half an outfit for her color posts!

From left to right: Anichka Savira, me, Eliza Quixote, Rudhmellown Laguna, Laila Laperriere, Shayariel Teardrop, Nicandra Laval, Ygrey Auer and Laura18 Streeter.

I’m taking advantage of Eliza’s photo skills here, because I didn’t take any pictures myself. My SL experience has been terribly sensitive to crashing lately. And getting everyone together for the shoot and getting everyone to rezz was already quite a task, without adding a constantly crashing neko to the mix. So basically I didn’t want to risk it.
