Mariko Magic: Moon Kitty Daria

It's not everyday that I'm invited to look in on the ground floor of a new fashion house and preview its collection. My good friends Tayrn Moon and Lady Di are launching Moon Kitty with a attractive and sexy line of fashions ranging from lingerie to formals. For this post, I choose to feature a charming formal dress from their collection called Daria. With its bright colors and damask textures, Daria would be the perfect outfit for celebrating the holiday season dancing at the clubs. And I love how it shows off my long legs.

Now don't I look like a bright green Christmas tree ornament? Well, I told you that this dress would be very holiday. And I selected a very appropriate location to photograph Daria - the Christmas Pavilion at Calas Galahon Park, a fabulous dance palace richly decorated for the season. There was a live music event going on at the time, so I found a little corner away from the dancers and began posing and taking pictures. I was striking pose after pose, one after another, while changing the colors and textures of the dress.  I was attracting much attention. People may have thought me acting very strangely, striking poses and all; but, I was also receiving IMs complimenting me on my lovely dress.  

Daria was working some wonderful magic as I was also receiving many invitations to dance. Often, at such music events, girls going unattached end up wallflowers forlornly watching happy couples dance. I saw a number of girls suffering that fate here tonight. So, this was a marvelous and welcomed circumstance for me. Thank you Moon Kitty and Daria.

I'm not a wall flower but I feel like one:

But, before hitting the dance floor, I want to finish this photo shoot. So, shall we continue ...

"Look to your right, Mariko." 

Daria comes with a HUD that allows you to change the color and texture of your dress. Daria comes in a dark color version and light color version of the dress. I'm wearing the dark version. Each version has six satin and lace textures and ten colors that can be mixed and matched.

"Now, look to your left. Perfect." 

The HUD also has a unique and useful feature - a light that is used to brighten the outfit. The light has 3 intensities, and, of course, it can be turned off. It will enhance the dress with a luminescence that highlights the textures. It is also very useful when taking photos.

My hair is from ARGRACE and is called ANZU. It was designed by ARGRACE owner rika Oyen. ANZU sells for L$250 per color set. A fatback set of all colors can be purchased for L$950.


I hope that this preview of lovely Daria has stoked your interest in Moon Kitty and its line of fashions. Moon Kitty has a vendor from which you can preview their fashion line and make purchases. Tayrn Moon and Lady Di will also be pleased to answer your inquiries and will be happy to show you their fashions and take your purchase orders. Just send either of them an IM when you are online, and they will get right back to you.

How I Spent My Second Life Halloween

The best place in Second Life to spend Halloween is at Calas Galahon Park, Tuck Meredith's and Tymus Tenk's wonderful gift to Second Life. Halloween at Calas Galahon gets better and scarier each season. And this year, it was most wondrous and terrifying. Tuck and Ty created a lost kingdom filled with mysteries and horrors. I couldn't wait to explore it with Jaysun.

Click on the pictures to see them in their full enlarged glory.

I met Jaysun there, and we began our exploration on the scaly back of a winged dragon.

It was a very harrowing experience. Our dragon climbed high over the mountains and then swooped down at high speed, twisting and turning in flight over the ruins of a long abandoned city. Abandoned by its human inhabitants that is.

The dragon deposited us in the city, and we continued exploring by boat. Yes, that's Jaysun under that skull head mask. Well, he said he was Jaysun. But, he's holding me awfully close and tight. Maybe too close and tight. Hmmm ... I don't remember Jaysun having such squinty eyes?

Well, I had more immediate dangers to worry about. Such as fire-breathing dragons.

And long dead warriors who might not remain so long dead.

And spirits from long forgotten ancient realms.

Some images were truly disturbing.

Wouldn't you know it that we would end up in the snowy realm beyond The Wall. Winter is coming, and I felt a chill.  And it wasn't only due to the cold. 'Jaysun' pulled out a flashlight from under his coat and was flashing it on and off. Was he signalling to someone or something?

In reply, a blood curdling shriek came from the forest.  And an apparition from hell came rushing towards us drawing an arrow on his bow. 'Jaysun' or whoever he was reared back his head and let loose a burst of maniacal laughter - BWAHAHAHA

He waved at the apparition and shouted, "I brought her to you like I promised."  
I immediately turned and fled. Then, I heard a loud thud and a "WTF".  I looked back and saw 'Jaysun' on his back in the snow with a feathered shaft through his black heart. The skeletal creature with the bow muttered, "Oops ... Sorry!" and laughed. 

A stone wall blocked further escape. Scratching and clawing their way out of shallow graves, more skeletons rose from the snow all around me. Heaven help me, what am I going to do?

Well, they are all so sweet and taken with me that I invited them to accompany me home to Opar, my country estate. After all, what girl wouldn't want to be pampered and wooed on Halloween?
