Puss In Boots

… because I found a group gift while cleaning my inventory.

Puss In Boots//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

A group gift from Hucci to be precise. I found it in my “still need to unpack this stuff” folder, so I have no idea when exactly this gift was sent.

Remarkably enough I just bought a very similar pair of boots in RL. So I decided to create a look I might wear in RL as well: with skinny jeans and a long sweater.

Now if only my RL hair would look as good as my pixel-hair does…

A bit morbid

… for Strawberry Singh’s Death Meme.

A bit morbid

Ms Singh recently had her birthday (belated happy birthday Berry!) And to celebrate this joyous event, she decided to ask us questions about death.

Yepp, you read that correctly: death.

Oh well, apart from taxes, it is the one thing you can be certain about. On to the questions:

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? – I don’t think about dying that often and that’s a concious choice. Why ponder about something you can’t control anyway? Just makes you unnecessarily depressed. As for how I expect to die? Hopefully something quick, so I’ll never know what hit me.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? – No, I don’t believe in any kind of afterlife. I know some people might find it shocking, but after I die I simply expect to be food for the worms.
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? – A friend of mine once had a dream about a meteor hitting the earth. In it she was happily telling people: “Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt!” So I’ll go with a meteor apocalypse. And hoping my friend was right.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far? – I cheated death twice so far. I’ve had a thrombosis and cancer. I’m still here and doing just fine. But 2003 was definitely not my favourite year…
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? – That was a difficult one, but I think I’ll go with Dracula. There is just something sexy about that neck-biting.
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? – Hmm, I don’t think I would want to be a poltergeist for all eternity. But I would love to haunt the culprits for a couple of years at least.
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? – Probably not. I’m sure I’ll have forgotten something… Did I leave the gas on?

Hello…?

… is anyone still reading this?

Hello...?

Honestly, I’m not expecting anyone to read this. Because dead blogs don’t have readers. And I know this one was so dead it was starting to smell.

So why did I disappear off the face of the blogosphere? Well… it just kind of happened. A combination of Second Life burnout, computer problems and just being busy with other things. But I was starting to miss SL, and I have a new computer, so the neko is back!

The first thing I did when I got back inworld, was try the new mesh body I had been reading about. I like it quite a bit. But OMG what does it take long to alpha, HUD, attach and applier yourself into an outfit. I’m really not wearing any kind of amazing ensemble, but it took me ages to assemble.

Winter is Coming

… for Strawberry Singh’s Winter Season meme.

Winter is Coming

The last couple of weeks have been rather weird for me. It started with a cousin having her first baby, followed two days later with the death of my husband’s grandfather, followed a couple of days later by my sister-in-law’s wedding, followed by grandfather’s funeral.

Oh and followed by my birthday. I actually had a very intelligent “huh, what?” reaction when someone mentioned that, because I had completely forgotten about my own birthday.

But anyway, I finally found some time and energy to do some blogging. Time for another meme:

  1. What is the December/Winter season like where you live? I live in the Netherlands. This means there may be some snow, but usually we only get rain, wind or fog. This time of year is often referred to as “the dark days before Christmas”. This post describes it much better then I ever could.
  2. When you think of winter, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? – I know this probably sounds stupid, but what it makes me think of is: cold. Cold hands, cold feet, cold… you get the idea.
  3. Have you ever played any extreme winter sports? – *falls over laughing* Ahum, sorry… I don’t like sports. I especially don’t like them in the cold and I’m way to much of a coward to do anything extreme. So that would be a no.
  4. What do you like most about this season? – I like that the cold weather gives me the perfect excuse to fire up the wood burner, wrap myself in a blanket and snuggle up on the couch. Basically “warm and cozy”. Yes, those furry feline parts on my avatar do represent a certain part of my RL personality. 😉
  5. Do you celebrate Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday during this time of year? – I’m not in any way religious, but we do celebrate Christmas. For me it’s not December if there isn’t a tree in the living room. And I mean a tree, not one of those green, plastic things they tell me looks just like a tree. I don’t care if I still find needles in the carpet next July, I want a real Christmas tree.

Kuzco

… Week 7 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Kuzco

Merida

Merida

I’m now so far behind with this challenge, that it has actually already come to an end, while I’m only at week 6. Quite an achievement really…

Anyway, here is my take on Merida. I made this picture about two months ago. So it was a good thing I wrote down the credits at the time, or I would have had no clue what-so-ever.

Peter Pan

… Week 1 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Peter Pan

Since I started this blog, I’ve done quite a few blogger challenges. But after the Color Challenge came to an end, it took me a while to find a challenge that appealed to me. I was a bit iffy about the DisneyBound Challenge at first, because I’m not a big Disney fan. But then I remembered just how much fun I had had making my Disney princesses-gone-hipsters look. So I went with it anyway.

Well, I was planning to go with it, before I went on my forced SL-hiatus. At the moment I’m already 3 months behind, so I’m not even going to try and catch up. I’ll just be posting these if and when I feel like it.

  • Hair with hood – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyeliner – Kyoot (saeya.nyanda)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Mesh hands – Slink (siddean.munro)
  • Neko tail – Lemon Tea (sei.minuet)
  • Dress – Somnia (sanura.snowpaw)
  • Belt – Fishy Strawberry (fae.eriksen)
  • Tights – G-Field (cerberus.noel)
  • Boots – Lassitude & Ennui (jackal.ennui)
  • Pose – Beetlebones (suetabulous.yootz)
