Happy year of *katat0nik*

kativersary


Seems like just yesterday that hyasynth said, "I'm opening up a shop on the sim Axis Mundi. You should come to the opening party and meet Katat0nik -- she's got a lovely dress out." I went and spotted Katat0nik in her dress, and immediately ran purchase the Carousel. It remains one of my favorite of Kat's dresses, and reminds me of the cuteness of Kat's shop when it first opened: you could walk across it in three steps!

Many dresses later, Katat0nik is holding her one-year anniversary party tonight. She reminded me that I wrote about her dress right after I went and got it, so I took a small stroll back through time. (Lol. I guess I've come a long way (baby).) Katat0nik's trusty blogger Adaire posted about the party over here, and I'm standing in the party venue in the photo above. Come get some cotton candy and toast a year with Kat!

***Dress: *katat0nik* (orange/green) Carousel Dress in twelve pieces, including two glove types and two stocking types and a cute bow at the top

Yesterday I almost had heat stroke. Today, I've put my SL character into this new warm military coat by amerie's Naughty just to trick myself into believing that the onslaught of Summer isn't quite here...yet... I was so whiny and miserable looking that my husband turned on the A/C, and it isn't even May -- such a delicate flower, I am.

I'm wearing this Yankii coat with new skin by Toast Bard, the Bird Skin. It has a very expressive face and amazing brows, telling a story in a look. The hair is from Clawtooth, long, thick waves in a style named after Veronica Lake. Please note the boots by ~ First Flower ~. There's a sale at ~ First Flower ~ today that is well worth hitting! (In my case, since I own most of the shop, I'll simply round out a few colors that I don't have yet...)

Stay cold, everyone! Small note. I have to take my computer in to fix the network card. I might not be in SL for a few days...if so, I'll miss you guys!

I've got my helmet on

You don't really need many words when you get to photograph a Hobbit on a motorcycle. Fade Dana and her pals took me out for a ride tonight to test out her new Motor-Head II helmets. You can find all the helmets that we're wearing at Fade Dana's shop, along with goggle and mask accoutrements (SLURL here). Fade, Needles and I are wearing coveralls by 19 (SLURL here). Photos were taken at the Wasteland's Junkyard.

My dress has piranhas on it

fish02


I got about three hours of sleep last night due to allergies, and keep completely spacing out. You just caught me staring with rapt attention at this Mini Moni video, in which Mini Moni totally wants a pet, so an animal dude from the zoo comes and shows them cute animals. Basically, it's one big justification for tiny cute Japanese idol girls to play with cute wee critters. BRILLIANT. Whenever I see something like this I think immediately of my pal Giuseppe Spiccoli. Do you still sit around work staring at the cute asian chicks, Giu? I miss those days.

Speaking of cute cuddly pets, I have a piranha on my dress. This outfit is the result of a jeweler (Bliensen + MaiTai) branching out -- just because she can, there are no fewer than THREE pouches on the prim skirt. The jewelry and tie are also by Bliensen + MaiTai, and the Leah piggytail hair is the latest "sorry, can't rip it off my av" creation by Calico Ingmann.

More pants

moarpants02


I'm still in the mood for pants, and (since it's either this or revise my dissertation chapter), I'm going to say the word pants for a while: pants. Pants. Pants. Pants. (Wow, a few more 'pants' and this could be an RP log.)

Uma looks so fantabulous in this Rockberry skin over here that I snuck over picked it up (and thus does information travel on the interwebs). I'm wearing a new coat from Manticorp, a place with tomboyish rough-and-ready jackets that somehow still look sexy, and I'm wearing it with completely torn up WMD jeans. The belt and tube-top come from Triangle (formerly Ghost). They make me happy in a Madonna video kind of way! [Hey Adaire: you were asking me about obscure tattoo shops earlier. Warudakumi is a new-to-me shop with pretty Japanese-type tattoos in it.]

Once upon a time in Festivale, Little Loli Lost went looking for her sheep. She finally found them -- they'd been abducted by the evil Queen Autumn and conscripted to labor in her petting zoo! Sadly, Little Loli didn't have mod rights, so she couldn't set the sheep up in naughty positions for Queen Autumn to find. Stymied, she decided to photograph her pretty outfit (the new Selador from ~silentsparrow~, mixed up with Snow Glass) and shoes (new Hyasynths from [Shiny Things]) instead.

This post is brought to you by the letter R for Random. (My other idea was to post some Ice Cube lyrics, but this was much more tasteful.)

why02


Why am I awake at 3 AM? Oh well, I think I'll write about my outfit. I put on the freebie hip tattoos that I picked up at Little Bird the other day and realized that I'd need some super low-cut jeans to show 'em off. Ellantha was sporting just the pair a few days ago, so I snitched her style and went to Plastik to pick up these pants. They're so low that if I bend over, you could probably insert things down my bum-crack. However, this being SL, I'm thankfully immune from spitwads or paper airplanes, and the pants look fantabulous. My shirt is a combination of a new release item (the jacket from the Selador set) and an older one (the bra from the Fond Affections bustier) from ~silentsparrow~. The boots I totally stole off of Cajsa -- and you can see them highlighted in a very pretty way over on her blog.

Right. 4 AM now. G'night y'all.

Curio-ser and curiouser

curio02


Several of my friends are complete Curio-holics, so I generally hear about the release the second I log in. I picked up the demos and thought that the April makeups looked especially nice on my shape, especially after Aemilia was kind enough to tweak the lips all pouty. The skins are so cute that I decided to show two of them, with a vaguely similar outfit in two color schemes.

The outfit is Zenith's Swan frock with hair from House of Hearts. Zenith makes lovely sculpted bows, and the top of the dress is perfectly cut to show off Curio's boob shading. Whimsy turned me on to PhotoShop actions yesterday, and now I'm going frame-mad. I do apologize for any tackiness you might see in the near future, actions are fun. :D Happy Sunday!
