Despite the fact that it’s getting warmer here by the day, I have to admit that the recent round of Collabor88 has put me in the winter spirit (don’t hate me, Wendz!) I’m sure it will disappear by the time we hit our first 38C (100F) day. We’ve gotten close, but this morning it is a comfy 22C (71.6F), so I’m relishing the spring-like weather and taking advantage to channel my inner snow bunny.
I bundled up in this outfit I put together with finds from both the current round of Collabor88 and the depths of my inventory. Amazingly, I wore this outfit for two days, since I didn’t like the photos I took on my first outing. Fortunately, on my second attempt I had just received a notecard from Fruit Islands, letting us know that there are now three winter sims open to the public. I wandered over the KittyCatS Winterland sim to explore, and I had a lovely time!
If you are a KittyCatS fan, or even if you’re not, this is sim is a treat. Winding along the top of the mountain is a walkway that is lined with little cottages, dressed up by KittyCatS owners for the holidays. You can vote for your favourites, or simply enjoy the festive decorations. I snapped a couple of shots, but I’m not posting them – they didn’t turn out well and I don’t want to give a false impression of just how detailed and adorable they are! Just do yourself a favour if you have a bit of time to spend exploring these delightful scenes. And don’t miss out on the KittyCatS Advent Calendar – it always has some lovely gifts from some fabulous designers. Not only is it available to everyone, you can grab any of the previous gifts you might have missed (one to a customer).
There is more to this sim – below the walkway is a magical winterland. I plan to do another post, highlighting the scenery, but for now, it’s about the outfit. After two separate shoots, by golly, I’m going to show it off!
With help from Tee*fy, – Tres Blah – and (fashionably dead) from Collabor88, I put together what I must say is my favourite winter outfit…so far. The season is just beginning, so that proviso is a necessity 😉 I have faith in the talent of Second Life’s designers that they will wow me again before the last snowflake melts!
