Love's Neko Lost

I was in a neko mood this morning, partly because of Gritty Kitty's new hair. hyasynth put it on for me yesterday and I was instantly in love, not least because the scarf has a color changing hud! I love items of clothing with this kind of flexibility. It's hard not to stand around for an hour clicking and changing and clicking and...Okay, perhaps I'm a bit obsessive. Along with the kitty theme are ears from Kalico Kreations (I'm a cheeseball and am still wearing the free ears from their NexCore fashion show) and outfit from Curious Kitties. Being a neko necessitates strapping stuff to your body, so I put on this armband thingie that I got as a Discord group gift. You might notice that my outfits are a mix of free and bought stuff; this is because I actually operate on a grad student budget. Plus, free things are great quality too!

Also notable is my new necklace. Violet Voltaire put out a set of jewelry called No Love Lost (read about it on her website here), and it continues her fascination with hearts. You'll see this motif throughout her work (like in my other favorite of her necklaces, the My Violent Heart set). Her work is amazing because the fluffy cuteness of hearts are always mitigated by an edge of saucy punk.
