Kitty Quicky- SKIN FAIR IS COMING!!

..and I’m currently having a sneaky-peaky around the venue.  Not everyone has placed their displays yet, but of the participants who have I can tell you that this year is going to be AMAZING for skin enthusiasts. I hope to catch everyone over the next couple of days.

What I can tell you is that so far I am being blown away by the detail, the rendering and the scale of the skins that are on display. The effort that has gone into making the skins that are on show so far  is phenomenal. I’m also seeing some sensational make-ups and a LOT of Tango appliers!

Hopefully I’ll be able to share a looksy at some of the participants with you over the next few days.

Could 2013 be the best Skin Fair event yet? So far..I’m thinking it just might be!

Get excited peeps, and get saving those Lindens!!

Kitty says Hello Titty Tuesdays!

Image

If you own a pair of mesh bewbs then you really ought to be a member of the ‘Big Boobie Babes‘  group, especially because they’ve just launched an event called ‘Hello Titty Tuesdays’

Each week a selected number of designers will place an item in their store for L$50 or less, and every participant is guaranteed to feature appliers for various kinds of mesh boobs with their items. There are ten participants each round.

I picked up this rather dandy denim frock from Patchwork Heart  and added a scarf to it to hide my applier lines (that’s my latest trick, scarves, snoods and necklaces are good for hiding seams!) and it’s delightful, as are most things from PWH.

You can read all about ‘Hello Titty Tuesdays’ on the ‘Big Boobies Babes’ blog, which is an essential read if you wear mesh breasts.  Grab some Lindens and check out the list by clicking here. 

Kitty Clean or Kitty Dirty?

Clean or Dirty? Which one do you prefer? That’s the choice you’re being given by Ellemeno, who have launched a rather lovely lingerie set exclusively for the Whore Couture Fair, which begins Friday March 1st.

It comprises of bra and pants with ribbon embellishment and authentic strap-detailing at the rear. as well as some special, erm, ‘enhancements’ for intimate occasions. The underwear is available in a delicious sorbet of colours; green, blue, pink, purple, red and yellow as well as black and white versions.

To be honest the undies in the coloured options are so pretty that you could use them as bikini, as I have done in my picture.  The neutrals make great underwear, and the matching glasses really do add an extra layer of coordination to the look.

But of course you’re wondering what makes them ‘dirty’ aren’t you? Erm, well…

Image

Let’s put it this way, we’re not talking the kind of dirty that  involves laundry detergent.

What’s going on in the picture? Well, isn’t it obvious?! Kitty had an ‘accident ‘in the sauna when she was applying her ‘lotion’. (She was trying to do it carefully because she didn’t want to get the hose again) and as you can see clumsy Kitty spilled it all over her glasses and her frontage! (And there you were thinking it was something smutty! For shame!) What kind of a Kitty do you think I am? (No, don’t answer that question!)

Bra and panties set costs L$195 and you’ll receive both ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ versions of the bra and pants plus Tango appliers. The glasses are available in a Gatcha at L$50 per play (The glasses are great, especially the pairs that have the ribbon adornment. Very Hello Kitty-esque!)

Incidentally, if you want to know more about the ‘Whore Couture Fair, then you’d better check out the blog, because it is going to be *huge*. It’s going to feature some of the brightest and best designers that the grid has to offer (obviously, seeing as CarrieAnn Lemon is taking part) and will probably dominate the Second Life blogosphere for the foreseeable..

Kitty Purrs At QE

I’m on a mission at the moment to find good quality clothing for avatars who choose to wear mesh breasts. There are so many stores on the grid that don’t accommodate them yet, and I sure as hell enjoy wearing mine, so I dream of a day when a store like Cold Logic will incorporate appliers into their range.

That’s not to say that there aren’t any good clothing options out there already.  There certainly are; Patchwork Heart, Ellemeno and Cynful immediately spring to mind. There are other smaller names too, but at the moment I’m seeing a lot of the same templates being used for clothing for busty avvies in stores. I’ve no issue with that per se as long as interesting textures and adornments are used to make the item stand out from the crowd.

I do hope there’s not going to be a controversial ‘them and us’ culture develop among designers leading to some sort of great divide around who caters to boobies and who doesn’t.   The fact remains that there’s a lot of fetish wear and items that expose part, or all of your knockers to the metaverse, and I don’t necessarily want to do that.  I may wear mesh boobies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I want to look like a tart. 

At the moment my gut suggests such a division may be unlikely, especially when you have trailblazers like Strawberry Singh owning some norks and taking amazing photographs in them. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! (I’d be interested in your comments on this issue reader, please feel free to add them below)

I’m also very into big-cat print clothing at the moment. I’ve not gone full on Bet Lynch, but I do like a nice tiger stripe, or leopard spot skirt. I’ve found a couple of items on my travels that I’m going to share with you; and first up is this rather lovely shirt from a store called QE,  located on the Jersey Shore.

Actually the HQ for the ‘Big Boobie Babes SL’ group is directly opposite the store. (Incidentally, that’s your  starter for ten, because if there’s a group HQ on the sim you’re bound to be able to find some boobie-wear nearby.  And that I did!)

QE retails a mixed bag of fashion and you’ll find basic wardrobe staples such as dresses and tops. The range isn’t extensive but I have a hunch that this is because the creator, Emms, is probably busy working on new range additions.  There are some items that I think you’ll like.  Look out for the ‘Bambi Dress’ which comes in a variety of options, plain or patterned, but the patchwork styling has a nice hippy feel to it. It’s mesh as well, which makes it even more appealing, and not bad for L$250.

There are some basic jersey dresses, always a good investment at just L$169, and you can choose from black, red or pink.  Again, as with the majority of items in-store, they all include appliers.  The ‘Cozy Sweater’ is not dissimilar to the shape of the ‘Open Sweater’ at Ellemeno. This isn’t a problem for me though, as I said previously it’s what designers do with the template items that’s important, and Emms has applied a lovely chunky knit with contrast pockets to her sweater design.  The open styling of course means it’s wearable with mesh boobies, and they’re a nice addition at L$150. (Even better , the ‘Cozy Sweater’ in green, costs just L$1 so a great dollarbie addition to your wardrobe!)

My favourite item in store is the ‘Button Down Top’in ‘Classic Cheetah ‘design, which I’m wearing in my picture above. There’s a variety of these tops on sale, but I wanted animal print and this shirt was most definitely relevant to my interests. It’s sexy (open to just above the waist) but not over-the-top, and it’s also an absolute bargain at L$120, and looks great with a pair of mesh jeans, some chunky bangles and your fave flat shoes. Well, that’s how I’m wearing mine anyway.

QE has a number of satellite stores around the block; you’ll find it at Cleavage, Calista and Sense Appeal as well so you may well encounter the store while out shopping or doing other stuff and things, and I heartily recommend it for building up your booby wardrobe at a low price. Essential purchases for me are the Jersey dresses and Button Down Tops, you can do so much with them:)

(NOTE: The main store is actually (according to Emm’s profile) based at Sense Appeal, but I visited and it’s actually a hardcore sim ( A future breeding lab apparently. My eyeballs were on stalks!) and I couldn’t see the store; but I did see other things. Yikes!)
