I’m still on a break from SL but, as always, a good sale has the power to suck me back in. Atomic Kitty is having a 50% sale on all gift cards and it’s not to be missed. They have some of the cutest Neko tails and ears in SL. So here’s my Atomic Kitty inspired look of the day. Also, if you haven’t already checked out AET‘s eyes, you really, really should. They are little works of art. :D
I write a bit in my spare time… I know, it’s very hard to believe considering the “quality” of writing I put out here… not to mention my deplorable punctuation. But I digress, I was listening to some Wolf Parade and was inspired to write today and one bit about a torn shirt just kept nagging at my brain. I had to see it. I couldn’t just write it, I had to visualize it. So about eight uploads later I had my torn shirt. Clothing, omg, it’s enough to make me pull my prim hair out. Making seams match up, fabrics match up, blah blah blah.. it’s argh. I finally muddled through with some stripes, but it was all worth the frustration to see it in the virtual flesh and it helped me finish up my vignette. I actually had made it to be worn by a male character but after seeing it on my Fricka, well, she had to keep it. One of these days I’ll take my hubby’s toon around to get accessorized so he can be properly photographed. Until then, it’s Fricka! The group gifts from Atomic Kitty are still available at their store.. but the hunt gifts are no longer available so far as I know.
I saw these boots from Bukka on Sai Pennell’s Blog and had to have them. They are so freaking cute! I love how realistic these look… they remind me of my favorite pair of Doc Marten hiking boots I had in college. (You know, all that hiking from the dorm across the street to class requires a good pair of hiking boots.) The legwarmers are also changeable with a blue menu which really gives them lots of options. I splurged and bought them in all 3 colors since I see myself wearing these almost all the time. I have a tendency to latch on a pair of shoes and just wear the heck out of them.
In other news, I continued to play around with the sky settings and well, I still think I look too ashen.. and it’s a little dark. But it’s a start. At least I don’t look like Homer Simpson. Oh and I was bored.. so I got a little over crazy with the photoshop editing. Kinda looks terrible now but I’m too lazy to fix it. :P
I was feeling cheery so here’s the look I put together. I am loving the new hair from Gritty Kitty! The little bow is just too cute! And o.m.g., the chucks from Akeyo are just the most awesome thing. I love the billion color change options and they are adorable. Chucks are my favorite RL form of footwear so having such a versatile pair in my wardrobe in SL is super fun. Get used to seeing them ’cause they make me happy. ^^
I was shopping around on OnRez.. one of my favorite past times… and I came across a slew of $1L items from a store called [OMFG] and OMFG indeed, they were awesome. I noticed they were blogged over on SL Free*Style yesterday and someone mentioned in a comment that they no longer seemed to be selling the items in world and sadly, it appears they don’t exist on OnRez anymore either. I am super sad because the stuff was freaking unbelievably cool. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw they were only $1L. I’m glad I snatched up what I did before they disappeared. I went ahead and linked their last known slurl so maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll sell their things again soon. Anyways, I built an outfit around the seraphim wings alone. I also modded up another skin with a kinda scarred up, bruised thing to match the steampunk/post apocalyptic theme. I tried bruising up the knees and hands but it was blurry so back to the drawing board with that. And crap, I forgot my piercings and eyelashes for the pictures…. well maybe they would have been excessive. Le boo.
