Terrible Tuesday: A Kittywitch A Day

honeybear_001Sometimes writing a blogpost is a doddle, other times it can be really hard. Occasionally I’ll put an outfit together that in my head works beautifully, but on the page..urgh. In truth it’s often the case that the really simple looks turn out to be the best, and that is definitely the case here. I love the way this look turned out: Yes, it’s another one featuring a Witchy theme but hey, it is the season after all!

My look takes its cue from the cracking jersey I’m sporting from MUKA at THE SEASONS STORY (an absolute must visit guys, I kid you not!)  and is further enhanced by this absolutely banging hat that I won in a Gacha machine at REMARKABLE OBLIVION. It’s well worth your time dropping by the store and throwing some Lindens at the machine to end up with a bonnet that looks radically different to your usual pointy black hat. Last but not least I decided to add a co-ordinating lipstick layer from ADORED, one of my absolute favourite cosmetic brands in-world.  You’ll find some cracking eye make-ups and lipstick layers there for other brands of mesh-mush, not just the PXL SWEET LIPS that I myself covet..which if you replace the ‘t’ with an ‘n’ turns into a VERY Witchy word indeed! HUZZAH!

LOTD: Kitty O’Ghoul Ahoy!

Halloween is fast approaching, like you needed me to point that out, so be sure to check out the Destinations Guide to keep on top of all the spooktacular goings on that are all the rage in-world at the moment.  It’s bursting with legions of them. And zombies, obviously.
In fact, Second Life is pretty much in full on excitement mode in every single way now right on through to New Year.  Halloween sets the spark alight and leads us into Thanksgiving and then onwards to Christmas and the New Year without really taking a breath, and as it does so the grid comes alive with all sorts of amazing content.It’s a good time to be an avatar, so I’m going to be sharing Halloween inspired looks and stuff and things with you through the rest of the month and also pay heed to some of the amazing events that are afoot. The majority of which I can’t get into (unsurprising when you consider that THE EPIPHANY made a whopping THREE MILLION LINDENS in their first day, I shit you not!) So I’ve been settling for other events while I wear out my ‘Get Me In’ Hud (other HUDS are available) THE COSMOPOLITAN SALES ROOM then was my first port of call for a mooch around. 
Occasionally I’ll visit and find the odd thing that is very relevant to my needs, and this time I found an absolutely corking wee number to dance around my skybox in! It’s the ‘Oriental Nights’ bodysuit from a brand called MILK TEA, and is multi- applier compatible and available in six smashing colour options. So of course, I opted for black.
It works really well; perfect for lounging around in but equally easy to dress up and dare I say it, even make a tad edgy.  To do that I added the amazing ‘Bastet’ Jacket by PIXICAT from the last round of THE ARCADE.  I also added some seriously gruesome eyes from IKON, a favourite BURLEY hairstyle and my N-CORE ‘Alexandra’ boots.  To finish I added the ever amazing ‘Steking Series 5’ ears by MANDALA, and there you have it, Kitty O’Ghoul at your service! MWAHAHAHAH!Evil cackles ahoy!

I’m the kind of girl who really does appreciate a quality group gift. Of course, you have to be in a quality group to begin with, and there are many of them in SECOND LIFE.
One example is MAGIKA hair, and this seasonal gift is nothing short of absolute Halloween perfection.  It’s called ‘Sorcery’ and includes a mesh hat + hair just for being in the group, and the style couldn’t be anymore enticing if it tried.  It has an almost coquettish quality to it, and is the perfect shade of Halloween green, although if you purchase the latest release, ‘Darkness Falls’ you’ll find that the colour packs are compatible with the gift.

I teamed it with a lovely shirt, jumper and jacket combo from APHORISM.  This is part of the ‘Autumn Jackets’ collection that is available from THE SEASONS STORY (beginning 10th October) and the textures on this are nothing short of perfect.  Zoom in and you’ll see chunky knit and stitching and a lovely, clunky belt that ties the combination together perfectly. The Jacket comes in 6 colours, Black, Charcoal, Grey, Pale Grey, Blue and Brown, and also included is a texture change pad with 6 colour options for the sweater. Even better than that, Maitreya Autohide is enabled too. HUZZAH!

My skirt is a jazzy wee number from R3VOLT called the ‘Heather’ skirt. I chose it because the HUD featured some grimy textures that were perfect for this look. They’re a label that I’m quite fond of actually and produce a great range of urban-styled pieces to mix and match together.  I’m also rather keen on these ‘Strap Leggings’ from ABRASIVE, which is another of one of those stores that once you find it you need to LM it for future reference.

I still feel the need to wear these exceptional NCORE ‘Alexandra’ boots at every opportunity but they’re so darn wearable and the HUD sock options alone make them a fantastic purchase for and edgy fashion look.

To finish I added my favourite eyeliner and a glorious lip stain from ADORED, a sweet Kitty septum ring from CX @ UBER and one of my favourite bracelets, ‘Eternal Life’ by YUMMY. Gearing up for Halloween in style aren’t we? WEEEEE!!!

Vintage & Cool

Denim Jacket Kitty

The Vintage & Cool Fair doesn’t end until Friday 24th October, so you have plenty of time to visit this event.  

I’ve popped back to it a number of times over the past few days, it’s one of those types of events that stands up well to repeat visits, particularly because of the layout.  I also really like that there are some great photo opportunities featuring vintage cars dotted around the place. As always with events I’ve discovered many new content creators, and I’m particularly impressed by the poses of offer from DYER MAKER.  Guys, my inventory is fit to burst with all the poses in there.I really don’t need anymore; yet I decided to splurge on the ‘Against the Wall’ and the ‘Pin Up Poses’ that were available at the event.  Then I just had to go and visit the main-store to pick up a few more. Curses!

So anyway, here’s another look I’ve put together in a retro style. The Tattoo is a new release from JOLI, and the fab skull and heart necklace is a gift from MAXI GOSSAMER. If you’re in the group get your tag on and go and collect it from the main-store, but hurry, it’s being replaced next week…Phew!  There are so many events and so many new releases on the grid at the moment, have you spotted anything amazing that you’d care to share in the comments?
