Tightly wrapped

aoharu01


In the middle of a crazy retail-mas, I paused to get a few awesome group gifts during my break today. This one was from Aoharu -- a set of three presents, boots that have been written about with cute legwarmers, a jacket and sweater set in a box, and that scarf. Acha immediately crawled into that jacket and scarf, and then found a pair of pants so tight that I'm not sure how he breathes. Or bends over.

If you haven't been following the Ingenue advent calendar, you should -- I've already gotten a lovely (girl's) sweater, cape, and two hats, and I'm about to go raid the tree for the fifth present!

Christmas ball

princess01


When I was a child, my ballet school used to stick me in all the boy roles. I was the bad brother in The Nutcracker, the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, and the Toymaker in Babes in Toyland. In my stint as a ballet-school token boy, I learned the following: unless you are a bad boy in ballet, you only exist as a prop to the woman. Here, my boy-avvie is very definitely a prop. He's the foil in a female-centric universe, the MacGuffin through which the woman's plot is enacted. Will the beautiful Fade Lei get to the ball? Will she slay the heart of the fair prince? Only time (and the prince's penchant for boys) will tell.

Meow meow meow meow

Curious Kitties has a little Christmas shop this year, out in the garden. It's got many items of Christmassy adorableness, including the group gift hat-with-hair (above) and the outfit and boots below. I especially like the vivid holiday eyes, so that I can see the world through Christmas-colored lenses. Maybe it'll make retail work during the holidays a little more sensible to me...

Grumpy for the holidays

softrider01


I went shopping at Niniko-boy to pick up pants and jackets, and then got the notice about Calico Ingmann Creation's new group gift boy hair. It comes with this great scripted Christmas hat! The scarf is also new for the season from Split Pea. I decided that I'd better wear all this Christmas stuff ASAP, because when else will it be relevant?

Steampunk Cygnet

evie03


So I've been in boy-avatar a lot lately, and have discovered something. If I'm in a mall and a guy has a nice coat on, I really shouldn't say "Hi there, nice coat." Because what it sounds like is, "Hey bebe, wanna go do gay things in my skybox?" It's all be an interesting learning experience. Apparently men just never really compliment each other…

In other news, I'm wearing Curio's group gift skin (a friend of mine pointed out that everyone would probably be wearing it today, and I said, ME TOO, it's too pretty not to!), and two colors of the Cygnet dress by Evie's Closet. I wore the Gritty Kitty Able hair a few days ago on my boy avatar, but I think it looks nice on girl-me too.

Bats and butterflies

huznstuff01


Ashia Tomsen's new skins for Idiosyncrasy made me remember how to be a girl again, because of their tender pursed lips and softly shaded eyes. I'm pretty sure being a girl also involves pretty butterfly tattoos (new from HUZ) and pretty hair (new-ish from Maitreya), soft boots that look perfect for a cold winter day, and armwarmers from ~silentsparrow~ with little skulls. Oh, and being a girl necessitates wearing a batkini with a cheeky little bat-head nestled betwixt my 2% jugs.

HUZ is having a sale, by the way, on all of the major tattoos! Perfect time to try out the henna ones, or the ones that Berry photographed so lovingly over here.

Fauns in the office

officefaun01


My pal Morgen Nitely was kind enough to photograph with me yesterday. We wore our best office gear, plus some horns because who the hell wants to look normal in the office? My outfit is from Zenith. Another pal took me shopping there recently, and I was overjoyed to see the array of cute boy outfits. I've been blogging the girl outfits for years now, ever since Caliah introduced me to Miffyhoi, and I'm quite happy to see that this lovely designer also comes in boy. Morgen's suit is from Shai, and I think I've gotta go back there and look around, I own too little of it. …I think I've forgotten how to be a girl avatar. Anyone who wants to remind me, go ahead…

Iced Swaga

noam02


Um. That is Noam Sprocket. We were searching for a good sim with a basketball hoop to take a Teen Wolf picture (…er. yeah, dun ask) when he stumbled into ICED. ICED has very large, very bright jewelry. He ended up with some fine pieces. "I love the typography," he said of the necklace. "This thing actually took a long time to make." Then he got pants from Dope Swaga, and I hate to tell him, but I think his manties are showing.

vest01


Happiness! hyasynth gave her ~silentsparrow~ VIP group some nice presents, a beautifully striped vest (above) and waist cincher (not shown). I'm wearing it with some loot from Schadenfreude's free Christmas stocking. This gift is so amazing -- you get the free stocking from Allegory's store, then anyone can click on it to get her enormous array of antlers, candycanes, and other awesome toys. There's always a super-nice easter egg somewhere down in the depths, and I don't know what it is this year… I'm also wearing three of Schadenfreude's new Christmas vests, below! The hair is from Gritty Kitty, named Abel. Can you guess what the name is from, aside from the Bible? :D
