Feeling Catty

Taking a walk on the wild side for Dazzle Event – March 2019

Catty will be available late Friday night, March 1st, 2019 exclusively at Dazzle until April.

I keep swearing not to do events anymore but, somehow, keep entering the Dazzle Event anyway. The owner/organizer, Palomma, is also the founder of Free Dove and her team builds remarkably creative themed displays for her events. This month’s theme is “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”. Naturally, I went with animal print. It’s likely that every other designer did the same. There is something about wearing animal that makes us feel powerful and bold – and it’s in fashion this season.

This mesh dress fits several of the most popular mesh bodies sold in Second Life. I was not able to get this one in a fit for JOMO, but will keep searching for mesh that work for those bodies, too.

No felines were harmed in the making of this dress and I will assert right now that wearing animal print does not have to be an act of advocating animal cruelty. It can be an act of honoring animals by donning patterns that are inspired by their beauty.

Now go sharpen your claws and be catty!

I found a TinRoof in RL!

Call me a visionary.  I “googled” my second life and found a store in real life called Tin Roof and they sell cute clothes!  It looks like they opened in November of 2017 in a small town in Ohio.  Here’s a link to their Facebook page.

TinRoof November Events

I made “Leaves” from a new set of luxurious textures of leaf patterns on neutral backgrounds.  The fitmesh for this blouse has such a satin-y drape to it that it needed a silky texture to do it justice.  Worn with a grey or chocolate brown skirt, this top makes a flirty entrance to the fall season.

There is still time left to grab it at The Shopping District before it’s moved to the TinRoof main store location.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Archon/71/123/1500

Leaves-Ad

Still inspired by leaves for fall, this cozy but sexy sweater was created exclusively for the WomenStuff Hunt (Nov. 1 – 30).

Two weeks left to come and find it for FREE in the store!  Woohoo!

Look for the WomenStuff logo shirt hidden away.  See the WomenStuff blog for hints to help you find free items in stores across the grid!  https://sl-stuff.com/womenstuff-hints/

This is a shot taken from the Pranava Yoga Studio in SL at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sapphire%20Skies/117/103/23.

Did you know that you can take yoga classes in Second Life?  Yasmin tells me they have class at 2:00 p.m. SLT on Wednesday.  What a great way to get us up out of our chairs at home while still feeling immersed in the virtual environment of SL!

I broke from the norm a bit this time and added some inspiring messages to this fit-mesh top.   The HUD has six color/word choices on it including “Pray”, “Breathe” and more.  So you can remember when you forget, and you can remind others so they don’t forget.  How kind of you!

The mesh is made in standard sizes for classic avatars and fitted mesh for the following mesh avatars: Ebody, Ocacin, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Slink.

Be love, and pass it on.

Happy New Year!

Happy hunting, and have a very happy year ahead!!!

Snowstars!

This gown was created for the Enchanted Yule event at Garden of Shadows.   A magical flurry of snowflakes will grace your shoulders as you walk through winter wonderland…

…because I pulled a Second Life fashion faux pas and made a sleeveless gown for winter!  What was I thinking???

Since we can’t really freeze in a virtual winter, I decided to take a walk through the picturesque snow drifts @ The Forest and take a few photos catching “snowstars”!  Hope you enjoy it.

“Kat”

Have you ever torn up a t-shirt to make a halter or tank top?

Kat-for-WSH-Spring-2017

Have you ever torn up a t-shirt to make a halter or tank top?  I’ve seen several of these on Pinterest and have meant to try my hand at making one.  When I stumbled upon this mesh model, I just new that it HAD to be a tie-dyed t-shirt, torn and tied in the back with denim jeans.  It would look so cute with cut-off shorts, so that may be my next project.

This is a Womenstuff Hunt prize, so I didn’t spend a lot of time with details.  I may do another one with edge seams and more shadows to give it dimension.  The hunt runs from April 1st (no joke) to the 30th.  That sounds like a lot of time but there are well over a hundred stores, so you can hunt a handful of stores each day and never run out!
