The Goddess Of Events?

I’m feeling a bit like the Goddess Of Events right now… so many wonderful events.

This look features items from 7 different current events. My hair is Tableau Vivant for Collabor88, the dress is Coquet for The Theme Park, the garden table is Collage for TLC’s The Garden, and the food is also from The Garden, by Ispachi and my olive branch wreath is Lark for TLC’s The Boutique. The beautiful lemon trees are from Dysfunctional Designs for The Home Show.

Goddess At Sunset

My beautiful skin is by Essences for the new edition of The Seasons Story. This is Amaranth, and I love the glossy lips these skins have.

Don’t want it to end…

The hardest part of the holidays for me is when they end! I love the decorations, the lights… all the little things that make it magical. Of course, I understand it’s the limited time we use them that makes them so special, but it’s still always sad (for me) to see them go. I’ve had this pesky cold. Not enough to make me spend my days asleep, but it’s a distraction. So, I’ve been taking lots of pics and figured I’d blog some of them, finally, since right now I’m feeling pretty good.

First up… Christmas. On Christmas night I got to spend some quiet time with two friends. The munchkin and I were kind of sleepy, so we made our other friend finish wrapping presents courtesy of Kuro’s Wrapping Gifts prop set (at The Garden). I’m wearing PJs from FateWear and Isley is sleeping in the adorable Waiting For Santa sleeping bag set from O.M.E.N for Collabor88. The adorable dog is from Half+Deer for The Garden. The build is the gorgeous Trilby Dacha from Scarlet Creative, also at Collabor88.

Christmas Friends

Next up, this gorgeous sleigh from Pixel Mode Home for The Garden. There are multiple colors, but I liked the drama of the red & black. There are also Naughty (adult) and Nice (PG) versions, which made me giggle just a bit. It’s gorgeously detailed, and I don’t think this is limited to Christmas at all! I think you can use it all winter long, and you can go grab it at The Garden through January 10th! Especially since the blanket is texture change, making it more versatile. The ground blanket with champagne is included, too!

Sleigh

I have more pics to share, so here we go… this next one features Sway’s Wonderful Life living room set, which is also available at The Garden, as are the cute stockings from Barnesworth Anubis (they are one of the gacha items at this edition of the event). The strewn lights and boxes of Christmas decor are from Second Spaces, and the tree is also from Sway’s.

Christmas

While we were decorating, my naughty KittyCatS got into some mischief! The KittyCatS team really did an amazing job with these Naughty cats. The lights on them even blink, as you can see below. The tree skirt is from tarte. and is one of their gacha items for The Garden.

Naughty Kittens

This next collage features items from The Arcade, which has sadly ended. However, there are still yard sales (just do a search for Arcade yard sales in places), so if you want any of these things, and they aren’t in mainstores, you may be able to find them that way! The gorgeous dining room set is from tarte. and is another item from The Garden. The stockings in the dining room are from Dysfunctional Designs, and they are texture change. Also from Dysfunctional Designs is the cute Christmas tree photo collage on the mantle in the living room. The baking table, and much of the decor on it was from Pixel Mode’s Arcade set, and the hand mixer and tins are from Second Spaces Arcade set. The kitchen shelf was also an Arcade item, this time from Tres Blah.

Christmas Collage

This next pic features Cheeky Pea’s beautiful Yukon kitchen island, and is topped with lots of my Arcade goodies. Featured are items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah, Vespertine and Pixel Mode. If you’d like the name of anything specific, please ask! I normally would list it all, but I want to be sure I get this post done before the holidays are officially over (seeing as it’s New Year’s Day!).

Bake ALL the things!

I wish all of you a wonderful 2014. I want to especially say thank you to all the wonderful designers who have supported my blogging efforts, and to those of you take the time to read.

Enchantment

SL has become so saturated with events that I am kind of feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by them all. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of events that I absolutely love and would be really sad to see end. It’s just that lately I feel like every time I blink, there’s a new event! I say this as the owner (but not creator) of two events. I love my events like they are my babies, so it’s hard for me to say that I think there are too many in SL. But I do. So it takes something really unique, or a special and short term event (like Skin Fair or the highly anticipated Shoetopia) to grab my attention these days. Enchantment does just that. It’s also only every three months, with exclusive items and/or colors. Based on Grimm’s fairy tales, this event is perfect for those who love dramatic, fantasy themed items. The first round is Snow White. The build is spectacular, and there is a wide variety of items, many of which can be used just for every day fun as well as fantasy/RP. You can read more about this new and exciting event here.

My gorgeous gown is from Junbug for Enchantment. It comes in a wide assortment of colors, and all of them are stunning. Junbug is a new to me store, and one I’m thrilled to have discovered! The tiara I’m wearing is a Glam Affair release for FaMESHed, and seemed perfect for this ensemble. It also comes in a lot of color options, which makes me happy! My skin is also Glam Affair, from the new Elvi line which is part of a youth-inspired skin line from Glam. The apple pose prop is from Vanity Poses for Enchantment.

Care for an apple?

I really had fun with these poses. The apple cart is from The Garden and is by Trompe Loeil. The spilled baskets are Dysfunctional Dolly Designs (aka [DDD]). My hair is a new release from Exile, and the romantic, messy updo seemed perfect for a possibly slightly evil queen.

Sweet but tart

Also from the current round of The Garden is this gorgeous camping set from What Next. My outfit is another item from Enchanted by The Library. This ensemble is inspired by the Once Upon A Time television series take on Snow White.

Guardian of the Camp

In this look I am wearing the adorably sweet new Lucie skin from Izzie’s. I was incredibly touched by this release, and consider it an absolute privilege to have been granted such an honor.

Events, events, events!

So many events, so little time! This post is a hodgepodge of events, featuring the Under The Sea Expo, http://seraphimsl.com/2013/06/08/collabor88-june-edition/, The Garden, My Attic and The Outlet! *wipes brow* That’s a lot of eventage! Yeah, I know that’s not a word.

First up, I love this gown from The Muses, available at Under The Sea Expo. It’s such a unique style. It’s a mesh/system hybrid (the bikini top is system), and it’s great for RP or just for dramatic fun. I’m kind of obsessed with purple lately, so I had to wear the purple one.

The Siren's Walk

I paired the dress with some gorgeous jewels from Ellabella, and this stunning Glam Affair skin for this month’s Collabor88. My eyes are from IKON (big surprise, I’m sure). Both of these pics were taken in the A.D.D Andel! Beach Nights Skysphere.

In the fog

I fell in love with this dress from Evie’s Closet, also from the Under The Sea Expo. It’s another mesh hybrid, with system layer seashells and a flexi skirt. Honestly, it’s been so long since I’ve worn anything flexi, I’d forgotten how fun it can be to photograph when you’re using AO poses (as I did here). Mesh is awesome, but it doesn’t move the way flexi does, obviously, and sometimes I miss that sense of movement in photos! This adorable ice cream cart gives wearable ice cream props, and it’s from What Next for The Garden. The floating lounger in the background is also from What Next, for Summerfest (more on that coming to a blog near you soon!).

Land Legs

My hair is from Ploom, and it’s at My Attic. I loved the starfish add on so much. I decided it would be perfect for this dress. All I could think when I saw this dress was of when Ariel gets legs in The Little Mermaid. Obviously, her clothes were uhm, different from this… but still. I imagined Daryl Hannah in Splash, too (totally dating myself here). And I thought… mermaids must like ice cream, too! My hands are SLink and the nails are from A:S:S Unicorn applier pack. The skin is Aeva for The Outlet. I loved the colors of the eyeshadow, and thought they worked nicely with my starfish hair adornment! Both of these pics were taken in the A.D.D Andel! Beach Days Skysphere.

Mermaids like ice cream too

More from me soon! There are more events to cover, after all!

An Unconventional Wedding

The brand new event The Garden, presented by The Liaison Collaborative, is now open! I was given the chance to preview some of the releases you can find there, and I must say you’re missing out if you don’t go!

When I rezzed the Wedding Altar from L&K Prefabs, I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. It came with some lovely, worn chairs in a variety of cheery colors, but I recently wrote a wedding-themed post and so I wasn’t sure I wanted to repeat that again so soon. I had this vague concept of just sticking some of my prettiest KittyCatS on there, but then… well… that sort of turned into something so much bigger than I imagined it would. What follows is a (not even slightly) true story of KittyCatS love.

The King & Queen of Winterland, Nicholas & Alexandra, wanted to renew their vows. They’d already done the formal wedding, naturally, as you’d expect of royals. So, they decided upon a garden themed wedding and invited all of their feline friends. Niles & Ginger, the Lord & Lady of Kittensham, served as Best Man & Matron of Honor. Bellini, a dear friend of the King & Queen, donned a cheerful vest and summer hat, and performed the ceremony. The bridesmaids held balls, instead of bouquets. Jian, the tiny flower kitten got distracted by a butterfly, and Zilver, the ring bearer was stretching and fidgeting the entire time, as young kittens are wont to do. But despite the antics of the youngest members of the bridal party, the royal couple’s renewal vows went perfectly.

Royal Wedding

While Alexandra & Nicholas renewed their love for one another, their friends watched on, from comfy old chairs. Leon, the MegaPuss, was too large for a chair, so he simply sat besides one of the guests and watched on. You wouldn’t dream of crashing this wedding party with such an imposing figure on site, would you? But Leon’s really just a big ole pussycat who wouldn’t hurt a fly. Well, okay, maybe if the fly was asking for it.

Unconventional Wedding

Following the ceremony, the not-so-young couple had the traditional first dance near the reception site. The catering was provided from What Next. I leaned against a stool and watched, while my friend Rosa photo bombed us by popping inside the caravan.

The Reception

Later, Jian (the tiny teacup kitten) and I had a heart-to-heart as I waited for my drink order to be served. Meanwhile, behind Jian & I, the newly partnered Rosa, and her guy Bentley, had heart-to-heart of their own.

Chat Chat

It was a lovely event. Everyone should really attend a KittyCatS wedding at some point in their SLife. I must confess I giggled all morning!
