Hii everyone! I was delightfully surprised to find the Tumble head being sent to my inventory.  Catwa had a search for a few bloggers to feature her heads.  I feel honored and grateful to be chosen.   So thank you for choosing me.  
So my post is basically about the heads that Catwa places out.  Now I will admit when the heads first came out I really wasn’t on the band wagon for them.  Not because of the quality or anything of that nature.  But because the heads are popular and everyone wants to wear them.   I really do pride my look being my own.  I think that is the issue with many people and their heads.  Now at that time I was also a noob when it comes to heads, I didn’t realize you could to some degree make them your own by adding appliers and such like that.  Omega will be your friend and designers are now creating for the head itself so you dont need that. 
So yes Catwa heads are Omega friendly so you can match a look you want! But like I mentioned I am finding that you dont need another HUD as many designers are creating for the head.  I am wearing eyeshadow from Veechi, and a hairbase from Just Magnetized.  Now you will see on the HUD pictures below that Catwa has all that covered in her HUD that comes with the head.  So if you want just what comes in the package then you are good to go and believe me there are TONS of options once you start playing.  
Another good thing is you can test the skin on the head before you purchase.  So wear your skin on the demo head and voila you can see if you like the look and you can play around with options as well.  The HUDs work and you can test what you want to see if you want to make the purchase.  I find this fun.  All demos are free.  I adore stores that allow you to test most if not all the features before you buy. 
Now if you want to check out this head or all her other heads, including the men’s section just check out her store you can take a ride HERE.  Yes for all you men that are secretly reading this you can get male heads from her store.

Now open to visitors is Cica Ghost’s installation, Library, which she introduces with a quote from Albert Einstein, “The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.” And to be honest, this one is pretty hard to miss, being another of Cica’s installations produced on a huge scale – […]

The Mittens Visit Wizard Whiskers

“Is this the right path to the wizard?” The voice was soft and curious and only a little bit nervous.

“Yas,” another voice responded. “Lookit, a lantern guardian bun, just like Madame Miu said.”

“Please help us, o Mighty Wizard Whiskers. Flufftail has been turned into a hooman!”

“She’s now all mute, makes just weird gibberish sounds ‘n tries to walk on her hindpaws all the time.”

“She’s even started wearing other animals’ skins on herself! It’s so gruesome that we don’t know what to do!”

Wizard Whiskers did not say a word, simply nodded slowly and glowing strands of sparkles picked the hooman up to twirl her in the air until all the Mittens could see was glittering lights. Then they heard a soft thump as something considerably smaller and fluffier landed on her four white paws.

“‘n that’s how we got our sister back and learned not to play with cursed red ribbons. Not even when they have wiggly tinkly bells attached.”

A Visit to Art in Hats

This is a short update to my earlier announcement of the Art in Hats diabetes benefit exhibit and sale.  I visited the event, and you NEVER saw so many whimsical, lovely, bizarre, far-out HATS!  Even if you never wear hats in Second Life, it’s worth going just to walk around and marvel at the things that designers think we want to put on our heads.  Some of those designers must be, I think, twisted indeed, but others are obviously Artists of great skill and imagination.

The event is set up so that you can buy either the hat itself, or a piece of accompanying artwork that showcases the hat.  Or you can buy both!  That’s why the full name of the event is “Art in Hats – Hats in Art.”

If you do buy some hats, and are having trouble getting them fitted with your hair, here’s a tutorial that may be of help:  http://acrossthegridwithlindal.blogspot.com/2011/06/hats-off.html

Here are a few pictures I took, but they’re only the tip of the iceberg.  DO visit this extraordinary event!

Feathers!

Flowers!

Warhol!
