As most of you will be aware, in RL I’m Wiccan, and tonight is our New Year celebration, SAMHAIN.
In other words, I’m going to get plastered and have a wonderful time in-world:) HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Well, I have faffed about all week in my usual indecisive manner but I’m finally settled upon a Halloween outfit, and I think that it’s perfect!
Meet ‘Trick or Treat Kitty’!I found this upon our good friend X Street SL, it’s an outfit by Babbette Adair featuring candy stuck in your gussett, as you do, and it costs L$250. I’ve teamed it with my fave Halloween Neko boots, ears and tail that I’ve sourced from various places, BUT I think what really makes the whole outfit rock is the rather wonderful pumpkin that I’m carrying in my hand, it’s festooned with candy and is an interactive freebie from Schadenfreude’s Elephant location.
You can also pick up a gorgeous Halloween bracelet for zilch there…I’ve finished the look off with hair from Magika, eyes by Amis and skin in 24k ( v2) by Curio. The shape is of course one of my own, ‘Rocker’. Right, I’m off to find a party….Whatever you get up to tonight, make sure you have a fabulous Halloween!!
Don’t panic if you’ve still not got your costume sorted, there are plenty of items across the grid and on Xstreetsl…but hurry up!!
I found this cute Bat outfit earlier - all clothing items (except boots) for L$199 by a company called..wait for it..’Spell cats’. With a name like that I’m so going to have to check them out in-world aren’t I?
The boots are also an X Street find from Dino Hallard. they’re very nice chunky lace up boots and for L$150 you can’t really say no…
If you’ve got time, make yourself a cuppa and go to the market place on Xstreet and peruse the popular items because there are some great Witchy costumes lurking in there today, as well as some fab skeleton avatars!
It’s going to be a corking Halloween!
I’m loving this seasonal centrepiece that I bought at Winx at the deck. It really adds a festive touch to your virtual home, and I LOVE decorating my home in SL for the seasons. It looks lovely against my Edo Furniture set from Shag, which is covered in my eternally favourite Alphabet pillows from Agent Orange. A lovely entrance to my home, don’t you think? Oh, and check out the ‘Apothecary Bottles’ at Winx too, full of essential spell ingredients like Dragons Blood and Graveyard Dirt..essential ingredients in any Witch’s kitchen, at Halloween or otherwise!

I’m just having a mosey round ‘The Deck’, a shopping area that I am especially fond of, and have just spotted these great outfits at ‘popfuzz’. They retail at L$100 each, and I think they’d make a great double-act for you and a girlfriend at a party. I’m sure you’d be able to source some handcuffs somewhere in this mad, crazy world of hours. Oh, and what’s with the cat I hear you mutter? Simple- sometimes it’s easier for me to completely change into a cat, than it is to decide what I’m going to wear…seriously!! No, I’m not kidding! So, here you go, me in my full Kitty mode…an avatar I acquired an age ago from Zooby’s, and I still think it’s pretty cool:)

..only cost 50L from Adorkable Poses at ‘The Deck’ and I can’t think of any reason why anyone would choose to straddle a cauldron but hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! There’s some nice bubbles in here..OOH! It’s certainly different to your normal Halloween pose faire. There are a couple of other special Halloween poses available too. The socks I picked up from Miel, and they’re special editions of her fabulous Lo socks. They’re ideal for adding a spooky touch to any outfit. The hair is new from Magika, called ‘Moon’ and the dress and bow came from Love Soul, the same place I found my fabbo Halloween nails. Finally, the ears were sourced from a Halloween Neko Set that I sourced on Xstreetsl for L$99 I plurked last week that I was starting to feel a bit halloweened out, because I genuinely am, but I don’t mind one bit; it’s a great time of year, and after all, for us Witches it’s our New Year celebration so it’s definitely worth getting dressed up for.
You’d have to have been living on another planet to have not heard about ‘Designers United’, an exciting event at the Cupcake sim featuring work from a selection of clothing, skin, hair and animation designers centred around a common theme. This year, it’s ‘Crow’, which means stunning Anton Corbijn-like masks, printed tees and jumpers, deliciously dark hair styles, luscious skin designs, dresses and coats and jewellery and LOTS more Corvidae themed wonders. I managed to have a quick peek before the lag monster engulfed me; as you would expect because the event has a limited running time it’s consequently packed out..but keep trying. It’s worth it because the selection of wares on offer are very good indeed. The designers have evidently been very inspired by their brief, I would be so bold as to suggest that some of the items make excellent investment pieces, and there are a few that I think are destined to become SL design classics. This photo features a prime example. I absolutely adore this So Many Styles military jacket which has crow feather fringing along the bottom. It includes an option without the feathers too, for extra outfit durability. Although not specifically a Halloween piece, this would be ideal as a cover up for a posh event and is an essential addition to any Gothically inclined avatars wardrobe. I teamed it with a skin from Schadenfreude for a suitably dark look and I think the resulting photo is rather fetching..wouldn’t you agree? I also really rate the lovely Beetlebones body suits and wares from Miss 80′s and Djinn and Tonic. I need to go back though to check out the rest!
The event is at the Cupcakes sim until Nov 3rd, so if you don’t want to miss out you need to head on over and brave the lag; NONE of the items are going to be available once the event finishes.
A few posts ago I told you about the new store, ‘Lark’ that has recently opened, and I know I eulogised about how wonderful the wares were to the point of being evangelical…..
But I hope, by looking at this photograph, you can see why I’m so passionate about it. My photo hasn’t really done this dress the justice that it deserves, but trust me completely when I say it is is just breathtaking. The reason? look at that layering dear reader, look how the dress flirts up at the edges, and look at the creasing across the waist. Isn’t it just magic? What you are witnessing here is attention to detail and craftmanship by the ton, and this is only the first batch of Lark releases….exciting times my friend, exciting times…
Some of my old shapes are now retired to my second store at Harlow, where the prices are all reduced..so you have one main store full of up to the minute Kittyliciousness, and a second store featuring some discounted happy! What’s not to love?
Let me tell you about the new shapes. I’ve been working on a few slimmer than my norm Kittyshapes, primarily because I’ve been approached and asked for them. My proviso was that there HAD to be curves: it’s a must for my shapes as I’m sure regular customers will know because I keep banging on about it. Anyway, the new releases feature some of the slimmest kitty-pickings yet…BUT FEAR NOT! I have a gorgeous, curvaceous stunner up my sleeve too, wee!!
First of all if you visited the Skin/Shape expo then you will have seen my Halloween collection, ‘Vamp’, ‘Wiccan’ and ‘Pumpkin’. Each retail at L$75 each, BUT until Halloween you can buy them all in a three pack for a mere L$100..which is smashing value. I must tell you that Vamp has proven to be exceptionally popular with my customers, and I’ve had a lot of feedback telling me how much she’s been admired.
All three will be retired at the end of the month though, for GOOD, so act sharpish if you want to wear them!
Now onto Halloween 2009, and I’ve created two new spooky shapes for your enjoyment.
‘Ghost’ is a slight, ethereal shape featuring the classic Kittylicious face, but she has long limbs to reach out from the darkness and grab you with. To be honest, it’s a lovely shape, and I’m very taken with it, as are some of the followers of my Flickr feed. The pictures for the ad feature me wearing a freebie spooky skin that I got from Plastik following a fab-free tip off, and I suggest you go there and get some while they’re hot.
‘Halloween Neko’ is pictured above, and she’s also slight, but a perfect size and shape for Neko aficionados. I’ve carefully worked the shape so that it balances out when worn with big furry fook-off boomers and tail. Again, this little beauty features the classic Kitty-chops, BUT with a few subtle changes; juicy lips and larger eyes for when you want to spook someone with your Kitty gaze….
Both ‘Ghost’ and ‘Halloween Neko’ will retail for L$100 each, because they’re a bit spesh and like my other Halloween shapes will be discontinued after Halloween……
Next up we have two additions to my specials wall at the back of the store ( in Malt)
‘Sparkler’ is a L$75 shape themed for November 5th, aka Bonfire Night in the UK. Again, this is a slighter (than my usual) shape for those who prefer a less weighty avatar. She’s blessed with a lovely face and will definitely make your bonfire party go with a crash-boom-bang!
Now on to my fave, ‘Winter’, which is my shape of the season, following on from Summer and Autumn, obviously. Ah Winter… The trees are forlorn and without their foliage, the landscape is bleak and the nights are long and cold…who better then to snuggle up with but this utterly gorgeous shape? She reflects wintry themes in her long willowy limbs (she has SUPER long legs for those peeps in-world who love them, but they can be easily resized should you so wish) plus a slender torso and swan-neck leading up to a new and super-pretty Kittyface. I’ve been tweaking and I’m really happy with the result; her demure pout and doe eyes make for a very beautiful avatar indeed. Even better than that, she costs just L$10!!! (All my ‘Shapes Of The Season’ cost L$10..Summer and Autumn are still available!) Last but not least is a long overdue addition to the ‘Signature’ shapes range..So named because it’s the kind of avatar shape that makes you exclaim, “Ooh, she’s lovely!” ‘De-Lovely’ is a larger than average avatar shape, with an almost muscular feel. She’s well proportioned with a small waist leading into large hips that feature an exaggerated curve. She’s also blessed with long legs, making her the kind of avatar that’s perfect for making a statement and being noticed. Oh, and did I mention that she has an absolutely exquisite face? ‘De-Lovely‘, like all my Signature range, retails for L$100 from my store in Malt, the entire ‘Signature’ selection can be found on the left side of the store.
NOW FOR THE REALLY GOOD BIT!!
Kittylicious! (Malt) now has a MIDNIGHT MANIA board, weeeeee!!!!
EVEN BETTER THAN THAT…’Halloween Neko’ is the first shape in it!! SO TELL EVERYONE to get their bums down to the store and slap the board !
The Midnight Mania Board needs just 60 hits to give the prize………and I’ll leave ‘Halloween Neko’ in there until Saturday 31st October ( Halloween obviously) after which I’ll put something equally scrumptious in there for you to win….( HINT: Whizz! Bang! Crackle! Ouch!)
