And around her head a circlet of leaves

leaves


I wonder what it is about jewelry that's had human being smithing it since before combustion engines. Clearly we had our priorities straight… "First pretty adornments, THEN motors." The jewelry fair is all about ways to enhance one's pretty in SL. Here, I'm wearing the offerings from Lassitude & Ennui, and I absolutely love the delicate elven motif of leaves interlaced in a chain… They come in copper and gold as well, and all-silver and all-black…a bevy of options. My outfit is from Vanitas Vestures. This dress is wonderfully whimsical, a froth of chiffon belted with a flower. The dress comes with a little beret that I'm not wearing in favor of the circlet.

Honey, kitty, Halloween

honey01


Honey Kitty has an attic full of the cutest Halloween stuff ever! There is a great orange schoolgirl dress as a group gift, and lucky boards with adorable sneakers in purple and orange, and a Halloween gatcha machine…*cry* I admit I left behind most of my Ls, but I managed to score the rare gatcha skin! One of my first purchases in SL was the Honey Kitty Halloween dress from 2008, and it's still in my inventory. The spark-emitting wands ALWAYS have a place in my heart. (SLURL to Honey Kitty)

Present for readers of my blog!

1600x1200_october


I love October, and because I can't really make anything worth a damn in-world, I thought I'd give y'all something kind of like a blog photo only bigger! This is a background for your computer, a small October postcard from me to you. The image is my attempt to represent an Autumn King of sorts, crowned in berries and thorns and scarred from brambles, walking out of the wild wood. Enjoy, and many thanks for reading my wacky blog. Here are three different sizes:

| 1600x1200 | 1024x768 | 1280x800 |
| Bonus for MacBook users, a girl-face background image in 1280x800 |

Hooray for...

Welcome, great pumpkin!

Leafy meow

neko01


I love the feeds right now. They're like October personified, happy and rusty-orange-gold and leaf-scented. I'm in some great things from Curious Kitties today. The hair and legwarmers are group gifts! The dress is from the autumn collection, in a pavillion a little away from the main tree. (SLURL to Curious Kitties.)

Elusyve in elven raiments

Elusyve Jewell of SLaundry


Tonight I stopped by the new Curious Kitties build, Fantasy Fuzz. The items in this shop are more faerie than neko, and when I saw the ears…skin…outfits…hair, I immediately pestered Elusyve Jewell. "Um…I saw this dress…and I think you need to buy it like right now k." She hesitated for a second or three because she has like a SHOP or something to prep for, but I managed to twist her arm. I'm glad I did, she looks absolutely stunning in this Protector of Wishes silk. (SLURL to CK: Fantasy Fuzz)

Pretty autumn day


Last night, I played with a fluffy sweater, Straylight Botanical, and a bunch of different Windlight settings. My poor computer crashes if I breath the word 'shadow' on it, but I do like the way certain light settings bright out the orange of the Autumn trees. The hair is new from Maitreya, and the sweater is a soft and comfy item from Amerie Men. (SLURL to Amerie) (SLURL to Maitreya)
