Yoko Ireto @ Nitroglobus Gallery

Yoko Opening Party

The opening party for Yoko Ireto at the Nitroglobus Gallery last night was an absolute cracker. There was fantastic music from DJ Lex and later DJ Justininho, a warm, relaxed atmosphere, light-hearted conversation and most important of all great people.

Yoko Exhibit

It's so wonderful to witness something Dido and Nitro put so much work and effort into become a huge success. There was a lovely steady stream of visitors coming to admire Yoko's artistic nude pictures and join in the party fun.

I really do love the sensual compositions created by Yoko. Each one of them has its own story whether it has a deep meaning to the artist herself or was experimental to help expand her horizons.

The other fantastic thing about Yoko's art is that the poses used are created by her own fair hands. I had the pleasure and privilege of using one such pose a short while ago when visiting Dido. I posed nude for the first time while using it and very liberating it was too!

Yoko Party Clean up Crew

After every party there is cleaning up to be done. I knew Dido invited me along for a reason! After I was done clearing up it was late and I was tired. The trash bags looked like they'd make good pillows so I hopped inside to catch forty winks before heading home.

Alley cat Kook inside a dumpster at such a fine establishment. " Only you, Kooky. Only you!" I hear my friends cry...

Until next time,
Kooky.

Bandana Day. Remove Your Hair. Show You Care.

Bandana Day

Today is Bandana Day which marks the last day of the Hair Fair. This is the day where we're all asked to remove our hair to show we care about the fabulous cause the hair fair and this day supports - Wigs for Kids.

For the duration of the hair fair a wide selection of bandanas created by numerous different people are available to purchase for L$50. All the proceeds from each bandana sale and the donation kiosks around each of the four sims goes straight to this worthy cause.

I'm showing my support by removing my hair and wearing this black and white kitty bandana - a creation of  caLLie cLine and KittyCatS.

Until next time,
Kooky.

+grasp+ the Moment

Lookin' Up - Playing with PicMonkey>

More often than not it takes me a while to get a picture just the way I want it. Sometimes I never achieve exactly what I want and just settle for what I have already. I'm not an overly patient person with these things, you see. Then there are times where a randomly taken snapshot seems far more effective than a lot of positioning and faffing around could ever achieve. That's exactly what happened with the image above.

I decided to go for a bit of a rock/goth/bad ass Alley cat look today and I think I pull it off pretty well. It's amazing the difference something as simple as a change of hair style can have on the over all look of an avatar. Here I've exchanged my regular 'do from Truth for a Dura creation. 

I finally gave in to temptation after a recent visit to +grasp+ and purchased this newly released vest and t-shirt combination. There are several different coloured vests available and they all come with several options of t-shirt which you can switch between with the use of a HUD. One thing you can't do however is wear the vest and t-shirt separately.

Wrapped around my wrists are Blitzed Legacy cuffs. I really like the detail and textures of this item. I've had them a while and they're a staple in my wardrobe these days. 

The jeans I'm wearing are my favourite mesh pants so far. The [JP]:dsg Superior jeans are highly detailed, come with the option to wear them clean or dirty and give you the option to wear up to three accessories in a combination of your choice. The belt, key chain and handkerchief come with colour change options. You can also choose to have a smart phone tucked in your back pocket or not as takes your fancy.

I will be heading over to the Nitroglobus Gallery where a party with not one, but two DJs will be taking place shortly. There is a new exhibit on display and as always the change of featured artist is going to be celebrated in style. This time around artistic nudes by Yoko Ireto are on display.

The party starts at 12.30 SLT. Everyone is welcome to drop by and join in the fun. 

I hope to see you there!

Until next time,
Kooky.

Black Stuff Sale @ Madworld - [NV] & SU

Kooky - Goodbye Kitty

Hurry, hurry hurry!

For the next 48 hours the stores at Madworld - [NV] and Suicide Unborn (SU) - are having a sale. All black items (that I could see anyway) have been reduced down from their regular prices to just L$ 50. This includes all mesh items and new releases from the look of things so if you've had your eye on something or fancy a shopping spree now is the perfect time to go for it!

NV & SU L$50 Sale

I purchased a few items and have chosen to show you one from each store here. I'm wearing SU's "Goodbye Kitty" cropped T-shirt which comes on regular clothing layers with additional prim cuffs for the sleeves. 

On my bottom half I'm wearing something I'd been pondering getting for a while - the [NV] Soley denim shorts which are a mesh item. There are a good selection of sizes and a couple of alpha layers. The bum on these seem a little generous and I had to expand my booty to fit even with the smallest size, but I like 'em all the same.

The colourful blocks prop from BENT you can see behind me comes with ten built in poses. You can both reposition and rotate each pose via the menu which is pretty neat. This is just one of the many great items available during this round of a new shopping event called The Retreat where everything is L$50 or less.

There are so many shopping events and sales going on right now it's difficult to know where to look first! My first port of call is usually the Seraphim Blog where the vast majority of things every shopper should know about are covered. It's a very handy resource and comes highly recommended by yours truly.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Kooky's Pet Kitty

Kooky's Kitty closer

Ain't he just the cutest thang?

My new kitty from + Studio Sidhe + provided the proverbial yarn to really pull this look together. I'd been wanting to show you a few items that I've recently purchased but I'd been lacking the right 'something' that would help give it some much needed synergy.

The "Lion - Leo Tribute" pictured here with me is just one of many items available at a new shopping event in world called Zodiac where all the items are related to signs of the zodiac. This round is all things Leo.

Kitty Cuddles

The other items I've been wanting to show you are this fabulous messy "Tomoko2" hair from D!va that is currently available at the Collabor88 event. I don't think there is long to go before the collection changes so if you're interested in this or any of the other items you'd be wise to get your skates on and hop over there as soon as you possibly can.

Finally is this simple but wonderful set of silks from May's Soul called "Raven". They have been created especially for this round of the Gorean Room. I'm not usually one for outfits like this, but there are always exceptions to the rule and this is definitely one of those

You really do get a lot for your lindens with this outfit. For just L$50 you get the cross-heart top, slightly tattered and dirty looking silk bottoms and several different accessories. There is a Raven 'shoulder pet'*, a bracelet, two arm cuffs a thigh band and a back pack. Inside the open backpack, which I'd describe as more of a sling, nestles a jar of fireflies and a Raven holding a twig.

The outfit is of a very high quality and comes with resize scripts for easy fitting which is always a bonus. Over all I am happy with how this item manifested itself. I think it is far better than I actually imagined it would be which is always nice. 

Anyway! enough rambling from me for now.
Until next time,
Kooky.

* Just for your information the Raven I described as a shoulder pet is not scripted. It does nothing but sit there and look pretty.

Gitu Art Studio - Three Artists Under One Roof!

Gitu Art Studio

Last night I had the pleasure of attending an opening party at the Gitu Art Studio where the works of Gitu Aura, In Inaka and Ishq are currently on display. There was such a warm friendly atmosphere, free flowing conversation, lots of giggles and calm music provided by the lovely DJ Alessa to dance to.

Gitu Art Studio Opening Party bdr

I have admired the art Gitu creates since I became aware of her on FlickR. In Inaka had an exhibit of her work a little while ago at the Nitroglobus Gallery which I was lucky enough to see. It was very nice to see some familiar images from her hanging on the walls as well as new ones too. I also enjoyed an introduction into Ishq's work which I hope to see more of in the future.

These three lovely ladies are very talented and I am grateful to them for sharing their art work with us all. The doors of the gallery are always open and everyone is welcome to visit so if you're at a loss for something to do why not take a little ride over and have a look around for yourself.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Sweets for My Sweet

Candy Kitty. Mmmmmm!

Nope. They're really not for my Sweet. They are mine alllll mine. *Scoops them closer* A girl can't have a birthday without a little sugar now, can she?

I saw this pose and prop featured on another blog and it was one of those items that sing out to me. I just had to have it and make use of it right away. I have a bit of a thing for delicious, chewy gummy treats. I loooove them! I also adore the taste of the fruity rainbow and who in their right mind would say no to a Snickers bar?

This fun "human pinata" pose is available for just L$30 from Love Me Brutal on the marketplace. Another absolute bargain! There are lots of poses in the store that are all very reasonably priced. I think I'll be going back for another browse very soon.

For now though I'm going to see how many of these I can eat before someone finds me and I have to share.

Until next time,
Kooky.

You can see more about what I'm wearing here if you're interested in doing so

Concrete Cakes & Rainbow [BG] Kitty

Today is a day that simply can't pass by without there being cake involved. I'm a year older, and supposedly a year wiser, though the latter is somewhat questionable.



This occasion has led to a perfect reason for me to show you this yummy cake prop with built in animations from Concrete Flowers. Due to a lack of time the owners - who also own the store KOSH - are closing Concrete Flowers temporarily at the end of this month and until then almost everything in the store (in-world) has been reduced down to just L$25.

If you take a wander to the very back of the store you'll find there are also four small but functional sky boxes set out for just L$1 each. I really like this shop. It's full of quirky items like mouth noms, holdable pickle jars, rugs, sandpits and clothing. I think there is something that'll tickle most tastes and even if it doesn't there is always the grumpy old tree outside that you can talk to.



While I am crawling all over the cake getting covered in frosting I thought I'd also show you another mod I've purchased for the Blue Galaxy Blue Galaxian Feline avatar. This one is by Kimmi Rexxi and I just loooove all the bright colours.

The mods are surprisingly easy to apply to the base avatar and clothing. You just rez all the different body parts on the ground and 'drag' the texture from your inventory on top of the relevant part. When it comes to the head it's ever so slightly more tricky. With the head you have to make sure the 'edit linked parts' box is checked then click on the part you want to alter the texture of be it the skull, ears or muzzle.

Also be aware that over the muzzle there is a transparent texture with the cheek blush on it. You'll have to move this up of the way before you can click the muzzle itself to apply the texture the same way as all the others. Once you're done if you re-click on the transparent layer, press the Ctrl + Z key on your keyboard the prim will return to its last position leaving it right back where it should be.

When you're done, pick up all your body bits and wear them. Ta-da. Easy as pie.

As I don't have pie I am going to continue enjoying my cake.

Have a great day and lovely weekend!
Until next time,
Kooky.

[BG] Blue Galaxian Feline - Krystal Fox Mod

Krystal Fox [BG] Mod
Isn't she just the cutest thing?

Today I'm not a kitty, but a vixen, which also fits my personality nicely. This beautiful mod is a creation based around the character Krystal Fox from the Star Fox series of games that was brought out by Nintendo some years back.

When I saw this mod while browsing marketplace, and then later in-world where I found myself unable to stop perving looking at the wearer I just knew it was something I had to have as an alternative look for my [BG] Blue Galaxian Feline avatar. The textures are magnificent and the options and extras included are plentiful.

Krystal Fox - [BG] Mod

With the exception of the actual avatar I've hidden beneath the mod kit from Puppy you get everything shown here and more. You get hair with and without a hair band, the tiara, the bangles, mesh shoes, the tail, textures for the mesh clothing you get with the initial purchase, tail textures and the body textures.

This mod contains PG and Adult versions of the skin that come with and without the tattoos (on the arms and hips). You also get two different textures for the hands, feet and tail so you and have a faded look from blue to white or the solid version which I've chosen to wear here.

The Adult version of Krystal Fox comes with the addition of 'mature' body parts. There are very sweet, well drawn nipples as well as all the other bits, bobs and holes you'd expect to find on the body of any vixen - human or otherwise.

So far these mods by Puppy are the prettiest ones I've come across so far. There are several of her items that I think I'll be adding to my BG wardrobe before too long. Just an extra tidbit of information for you... When I contacted Puppy with a curious question she told me that she's currently working on four new mods. I can't wait to see what she's going to come up with next. I think I'd better start saving now!

Until next time,
Kooky.

[BG] Blue Galaxian Feline Avatar

Blue Galaxian Cheshire [Kooky] Kitty - RaWr!

I've been like a child with a new toy since I purchased the Blue Galaxian Feline avatar from Blue Galaxy. Actually, I think I've been more like a child that has been taken to a toy store, given a trolley and been told to fill it up with whatever they want. 

Crazy bouncy and all bubbly excited don't really come close to the nature of lil ole me just recently. I'd also bet that I've talked way too much about how cool this avatar is, how much I adore it and how there are lots of mods I want to get for it. I have no idea how my friends (and my girlfriend in particular) have put up with my...ummm....enthusiasm but thank you all for embracing me and my increasing levels of excitement and silliness.

In my opinion this avatar is mind-blowingly awesome. It has been created primarily using mesh, though the head part is a sculpt. The head is scripted so that life can be breathed into it via facial expressions. You can poke out your tongue, smile, bare your teeth, just have your mouth open and a bunch of others as well.

Blue Galaxian Cheshire [Kooky] Kitty - Smile!

The 'skin' I'm wearing is one of the many mods you can purchase for the BG Feline avatar. It is one variant of the 'cyber kitty' mod from Static which is also where I got the matching cyber eyes. The eyes come scripted to colour change so they'll go with any number of outfits and match up nicely with the other colour options this mod is available in.

I am really loving the pink and purple Cheshire Cat thing I have going on. For a long, long while now I have wanted to create a look based around the famous, big grinned Alice in Wonderland kitty. I had considered taking the plunge and purchasing a special edition Cheshire Cat version of the DERP domestic cat, but, if I'm honest it didn't really make the excitabubbles fizz anything like this avatar does.

Did I mention how much I love this avatar? How I think it is one of my favourite purchases to date? How I think I was daft for not getting it earlier?

This avatar is mesh used to its full potential, I think. The way it moves with my AO is flawless, the textures are extremely high quality, crisp and clear. To top it all off there are free PSD's available to help make the creation skin and clothing mods easy (if you know what you're doing).

This avatar is simply  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! I really can't sing its praises highly enough.

I think you'll be seeing plenty more posts from me in the future featuring this gorgeous avatar and some of the mods you can get for it.

But for now,
and until next time,

Kooky.

Cover My Furry Butt Hunt 2 - I'm a Plushie!

There has been a little confusion surrounding the Cover My Furry Butt Hunt and as far as I'm aware no more official news from the hunt organisers has been released. It was supposed to start on the 1st of July but due to unforeseen RL circumstances and then a problem with a Second Life account the start date was delayed by a week.

I thought I'd chance my arm and start hunting for the prizes, the majority of which are out in the stores ready for you to get your paws on, and wow there are some good 'uns.

If I'd have been smart I would have made a list of the stores I couldn't locate the paw hunt objects in to share with you, but I wasn't and I didn't..Oh well. Sorry about that.

Plushie me!

Being the silly thing I am I'd always wondered if it were possible to become a plushie toy in SL so when I came across this Plushie Mod Kit for the Tokushi Tiny Skunk I got all excited! The mod kit is the hunt gift at Whimsical Wonders where there is also a mini hunt going on. If you can find the mushrooms you'll get leg warmers, a 'shroom' avatar and a couple of other great prizes - there are 4 of them to collect ontop of the CMFB hunt prize.

Before I go on I want to make it very clear that this prize is a kit to modify an avatar. You do not get the avatar as part of the prize. If you want to make use of this gift you will have to purchase/have purchased one of the Tokushi skunk avatars, apply the textures and use the provided body parts (tail, leg label and zipper) to turn yourself into the plushie version.

I really love this avatar it's just the cutest thing whether I'm wearing the original skin ( I chose the inverse skunk) or the modified version. It is a mesh avatar so you'll need to have a mesh enabled viewer to see it correctly. It works wonderfully with my AO and the poses I tried with it. There are no funny spaghetti bending body bits or odd twists. It has been rigged to perfection. I'm very happy with my newest purchase and think I'll be wearing it lots.

I wonder how many people I can get to hug me...teehee!

Until next time,
Kooky.

Mischief Managed - Harry Potter Themed RP Sim

Mischief Managed 1 - Express

So much to do and see, so little time!

Today I finally managed to satisfy my curiosity about the new Harry Potter themed roleplay sim and wow I am glad I got to go have a nosey about before the preview ends on the 13th of this month. The entire build has been created using mesh and is nothing short of breathtaking in my opinion. Details. Details. Little details, they're everywhere!

I began my journey at Platform 9¾.

Mischief Managed 2 - Staircase

During the public preview week anyone is welcome to go and have a look around the sim. Once the week is over and the ball gets rolling though the vast majority of the build is going to be restricted to group only access.


The build isn't complete yet but you can certainly get a feel for how deeply immersive the environment is going to be. I also really like the way they're going to use the incomplete build as a way to get people back into the swing of roleplaying their characters again.

(taken from a notecard)
"July 13th: (We open the sim to Roleplay for current students of Hogwarts)
Midway through the summer holiday, letters have been sent out to the current enrolled students of Hogwarts to aid in the restoration of the school. The Hogwarts Express has been called upon to run over time so all throughout this second half of the semester, students may come to and fro to the school to help rebuild it. There will be no classes held but breakfast, lunch and dinner happens as the school is fully staffed with fresh house elves once again. "

On the first of August the first term begins!

Mischief Managed 4 - Building

This is a truly wonderful place to visit and I think I'll do so again before the 13th as my visit was cut short. I can't wait to see more of it.

I highly recommend a look around if you have a little while spare. If you do go over there I also recommend picking up the bag of luggage at the landing point which gives you some informational notecards, landmarks, and your very own suitcase too.

What is that vanishing spell again? I can't remember so I'll just say;

Until next time,
Kooky.

Doppelganger Inc. & Lolo Sim Sales

Doppeganger

While on my Fifty Linden Friday wander I found out that Doppelganger Inc.are having a sale. Absolutely everything in the store has been reduced down to just L$50 (not the fat packs). I'd actually had my eye on this sweater for a while and couldn't resist snapping it up for this super low price.

The Forester sweater comes with several plaid shirt colour options. You can pick between red, green and blue. I decided to combine it with a nicely textured pair of -BC- jeans and my trusty worn engineering boots from Deco.

As well as Doppelganger a lot of the other stores on the Lolo sim are having "Sweet" summer sales. The sales are going to last for a week, from the 8th to the 16th of July so if you want to make the very most of it I'd hot foot it over to Lolo sooner rather than later.

What better way to begin a new season than with a shopping spree. I know that summer has been here a while, but it really doesn't feel like it here in the UK. Rain, rain, rain.. ugh!

Until next time,
Kooky.

A Splash of Colour

As I'm sure many of you are aware the Fifty Linden Friday team are back in business again. During last weeks round there was one item available on the cheap that I just couldn't resist picking up. The Gos Gator Sports Clogs in the "Splash" colour option.

They're just so fun and funky. The trouble was that I had absolutely no idea what kind of outfit to put with them. I'd thought about going for the whole paint splattered look but as I was looking through one of the fashion feeds I came across a new release from AlterEgo that would go splendidly well with my new shoes.

Splatter

This outfit "Decode" comes in a variety of colour splash options. There is pink, blue, grey, the green I chose and a couple of others that elude me right now. I really like the simple casual look and love the textural details on both the pants and the shirt. Those wrinkles are just awesome.

It had been a long time since I had last visited AlterEgo and wow it has changed a lot! There is such a wide variety of outfits there now and they are really reasonably priced. The outfit I'm posing in here was L$200 which isn't a great deal at all, especially considering the quality of the item.

I hope you're all having a great start to the week!

Until next time,
Kooky.

Under The Sea - Sinister Steam Hunt II

  The seaweed is always greener 
 In somebody else's lake 
You dream about going up there 
But that is a big mistake 
Just look at the world around you 
Right here on the ocean floor 
Such wonderful things surround you 
What more is you lookin' for?

Ooooh! Shinies!

Shiny things. That's what I is lookin' for. Luckily for me I found some in an under water cave. Yay! Just call me Miss Money Bags!

Affinity Boutique Sinister Steam Hunt prize

This avatar is the Sinister Steam Hunt gift from Affinity Boutique. I think it's such a fun little thing and couldn't resist showing it to you. It comes with everything you can see apart from the shape which is my own. You get the wonderful skin, costume and even a swimming animation to send you off on an underwater adventure.

Have a wonderful lazy Sunday everyone.

Until next time,
Kooky.

One Voice


Curio's Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. 

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. 

Gala's fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight these baseless claims.

The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.

Some participants include HoD, SAKIDE, Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more.

This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it's necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn't.

Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you'd like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!

Sinister Steam Hunt II

The Sinister Steam Hunt has returned for a second time slightly later than was initially planned. The hunt will now run from the 1st to the 31st of July so you have a good amount of time to visit each store and hunt out the pocket watch hunt item.

There are fifty-two participating stores all offering up 'time machine' themed items for your enjoyment. You can find out more on the hunt blog where you'll also find surls, hints and even some pictures of the prizes you can find along the way.

SinsterSteam Hunt & Filthy GG

The beautiful "Shirell" gown and hat with veil I'm wearing can be found in the hunt at PeKaS. I also thought I'd take the opportunity to show you this months female group gift from Filthy. The group costs L$199 to join, but is more than worth the small joining fee. They generously hand out a wonderfully crafted shape and skin combination for both girls and boys at the beginning of each new month.

I'm going to go unpack some more boxes to see what other goodies I've found on this fabulous hunt.

Until next time,
Kooky.

PetsiKat @ Nitroglobus Gallery

Dido & Nitro
(Dido Haas & Nitro Fireguard)

This month the artwork of PetsiKat Markova is on display at the Nitroglobus Gallery owned and managed by my two very dear friends Dido Haas and Nitro Fireguard.

This is the first time PetsiKat's wonderful work has been exhibited in this fashion and I'm quite sure that it isn't going to be the last. I really love the way PetsiKat has captured different moods in the images though the use of colours and fine attention to detail.

PetsiKat Opening Party

As always I had great time at the party with friends old and new. It is really heart warming to see more and more people coming to support this new gallery, Dido's art and that of the featured artist. I really do hope it is a trend that continues because I know how hard Dido and Nitro work to make these occasions go without a hitch.

Thank you Dido and Nitro for providing the setting and warm welcoming atmosphere, and thank you to PetsiKat for sharing your beautiful pictures with us all.

Until next time,
Kooky

Kook In a Box

Kook in a box - Peek

Go on, tell me of a playful soul that can resist getting inside a box when the opportunity arises? Not me that's for sure! 

I was recently at the Adorkable pose shop where they have several fun props and poses reduced right down to just $L10 this box is one of them. It comes with a nice selection of built-in poses and I just love the wonderfully bright colours.

Now I just have to wait for some poor unsuspecting soul to walk by so I can leap out, make them jump and then probably giggle. My outfit is....really something.

Kook in a box - Surprise!
Today I'm no cute cuddly kitten, Imma tiger! 
Rawr!

I couldn't wait for someone to pass by. I just had to spring out of my little hiding spot to show you these funky pyjamas from Plowwies. They are one of the many great hunt gifts available on the Femboy hunt, some more of which I blogged yesterday.

I adore silly items like these and there are plenty more fun pyjama sets on offer at the store. The outfit comes with foot paw slippers which remain hidden inside the box and on the back there is a little 'bum flap' which just adds to the adorability factor.

If you are interested in more of the hunt gifts available in the Femboy hunt plenty of images and information are available on the official hunt blog and I found this post helpful too.

I don't think I'm going to be changing out of my funky new jammies today. I am going to do what kitties do best - lounge, sprawl and snooze.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Femboy Hunt

(Skin with my personal Kooky Shape)

I absolutely love this skin from Tableau Vivant. The face is so beautiful; soft and delicate with very well done freckles spanning the upper cheek bones. The nose is cute with its shiny tip, the eyes are perfect and those lips are truly scrumptious. They almost make me want to kiss myself!

Femboy Hunt Skin & Shape orig

As you can see in the picture above the body is of the same quality and detail as the face. I love the soft toned nature of the abdomen and the shading along the inner hips is just plain sexy.

This skin (Tableau Vivant) and shape (Heartsick) I'm wearing are two of fourty-eight gifts available on the Femboy Hunt. This is not quite a free hunt  Each item is set the low and somewhat odd price of  L$2.

If you'd like to see what you could be getting for your money in this hunt there are pictures of hunt prizes available both here and on the official hunt blog. The hunt blog also has a list of all participating stores with surls to each one and hints to help you along the way.

I added the two year anniversary gift hair from Dura which is free for group members* and threw on a pair of mesh jeans from Bird Next Door to complete this simple look.

I'll be back with more from this hunt soon. I plan on showing you one of the outfits that really did make me giggle. I bet if you take a look at the prizes it won't take long for you to figure out which one I'm talking about.

Until next time,
Kooky.

*Group is free to join.

Summer Lovin'

Summer lovin'

WetCat currently have this great beach scene pose box as a group gift*. There are several different poses with props that auto-rez including a floppy summer hat, ice cream and watermelon. It's very nicely made and has served as a great back drop for something I've wanted to blog for a wee while now.

As you may or may not know, my girlfriend Sol and I recently partnered in SL which was absolutely amazing all on its own. When I shared the news with my closest friend, Dido and her partner Nitro they were very happy for the both of us.

Being the amazing people they are they decided that they'd like to get me a gift to mark the occasion. They chose to buy me Slink mesh bare feet. Goodness I love them - and the feet too! Now I can proudly strut around with my tootsies on show; something I didn't really like to do much before with how ugly and deformed the system feet are. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful gift Dido and Nitro. You really are  fabulous people, amazing friends and are so, so cute together. <3

While I am talking about Dido and Nitro I'd like to add that there is a new exhibit featuring at their gallery this month and the opening party is tomorrow - Thursday 5th July. If you'd like to know more about that please follow this link over to Dido's blog. It's all very exciting. The parties at Nitroglobus Gallery are always so much fun I can hardly wait!

In case you're interested in my outfit I'm wearing the special priced leo bikini from DeeTalez. The offer was supposed to end on 30th June but is still available at the time of posting. If you want this skimpy-kini for the low price of L$60 I'd hurry as I doubt the deal will be around much longer.

The shorts featured in a recent blog post of mine. They are a recent release from Cynful. They're available in several different shades and come with a selection of different sizes to suit your body shape.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Death Row Designs - Fail Sister 2

Fail Sister - DrD Complete Avatar

The midnight mania boards at Death Row Designs are loaded with a tonne of goodies. There are 'gore' items, a battered tattoo layer, a couple of different pairs of boots and this fabulous complete avatar "Fail Sister 2" The boards lock down at around 200 slaps each so grab your pals, join the group if you're not already a member and slap away.

As well as having MM board gifts that change on a regular basis there are a bucket load of lucky chairs with yet more fabulous gifts. You can pick up clothes, accessories, boots and whole host of other fabulous goodies if your letter shows up. 

Each and every DrD product is lovingly handcrafted by the store owner, Jaimy Hancroft. The unique designs and high quality has me returning time and time again. I love this store and hope that you'll become a fan too if you decide to take a gander.

Until next time,
Kooky.

My Ideal Lazy Sunday & More MHOH 7

Day Dreamin'

On a grey day like today it's always nice to dream about an ideal lazy Sunday. For me this image pretty much captures what I wish I were doing right now. I'd love to be stood on a dock looking out over the water as cooling breeze kisses my warm skin. There are only a couple of things missing to make this situation perfect. One is my girlfriend and the other is a couple case of cold ciders. Mmmmm cider!

I'm a fan of the skimpy outfit I'm wearing today. If were more toned and had a stomach to die for like my avatar does it's definitely the sort of thing I'd wear in RL. The simple racer back styled sports bra is avaliable from *BOOM* both in-world and on the marketplace.

I've pair that up with these super cute mesh shorts which are a recent release from [Cynful]. They come in a wide variety of colours and with plenty of size options so there should be a pair that fit, or are very close to fitting, your shape.

Finally right at the bottom on my feet are a pair of boots available in the Make Him Over Hunt. I've shown several other items from the hunt in previous blog posts and you can find more information about it in them if you so desire.

The boots are pretty neat and come scripted with several options. You can change the colour of the boot straps, change the colour of the socks, or chose not to wear any socks with them if you prefer. They can be found at the Muism main store.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Goodies For Guys

Filthy & Kal Rau Group Gifts

I've broken Kooky-boy back out of the box to bring you a couple of really great group gifts. I was blog trawling yesterday and came across a wonderful jacket and plaid shirt combination from Kal Rau which I wanted a closer look at.

While browsing the store I noticed this mesh T-shirt and shorts combo was available as a group gift (free to join) and snapped it up quick smart. The clothing items come with a few size options and a colour change HUD for easy customisation which is pretty nifty.

The shape and skin I'm wearing are also available as a group gift over at Filthy. Though group is no longer free to join it is worth each and every one of the L$199 fee. In my opinion you get your money back and more the instant you pick up your first group gift as a skin and shape of this quality would usually set you back way more.

With it being the beginning of another month, hopefully one that brings a great deal more sunshine and summery weather than the previous three here in the UK, I'll no doubt be back very soon with more monthly group gifts and other goodies to share.

Until next time,
Kooky.
