Summer Deadlight, Kitty ExtraWeirdonaire here! Im a dork and I love it, but nevermind that. Iz a big topic for another day, now I got a mishmash combo that just rwaks ^^ Getting my swag on!
I finally found someone who could make my tail fluffy! A hairstylist with vision! I have been using Hybrid’s ears and tails forever, and I love it. But when I saw the Hello Kitty edition of ears and tails by *FIFFERLING~LEONARD* Really great store if you are interested in the cewt neko trend. There are some bloody, urban styles, but I mean its Hello Kitty! 😀 Let me show you a more close up shot of the ears and tail.
As you can see, the Hello Kitty only pierces one ear, and so there is not alot to draw attention away from other aspects of your outfit, but its cool enough to say Hey! Gotta check these ears out *twitches her ears* See! Made ya look 🙂 The hair is a style by Magika! I love Magika hair btw! I thought the avaitor cap gave this look a better view of my eyes, plus iz just cool. Yanno Snoopy may be a dog, but imma shoot the red baron down too! I can fly…really.. with guns…on a make believe “Red Baron” dog .. house.. Umm..ok on to the tail! *distracts you*
Hair pins, punk bracer, chucks, key, hello kitty all on the PINK bandana wrapped tail. Can we say, new punk, sk8ter, poser, loser, girlie? Ya baby! iz cool no matter what! Mostly cuz its pink, but hey what can I say, I love the color pink \o/
Oh oh! next thing I want to show is my leg warmerz! These are also from *FIFFERLING~LEONARD*
Look at these babiez! My leg warmerz pwn yours! Not only is the kitty paw print cewt and patriotic to the Neko Nation, but we got the little mice charms, the rotten chain, a bit of dirty print and pair these up with the .:-CatniP-:. Dumpster Diver shoes (Upper boot part not worn) and you got a great look. See the blood on the one boot? See the spikes? Just cuz we neko’s are cewt dun mean we dun know how to give a beat down, not just in the bedroom. Street sense is a must for any kitty!
Final touches, would be the Sn@tch Shirt, the Cross of Oscuridad necklace, and the eyelashes from [Detour]. So there ya have it. Just remember that swag is not about keeping up with the crowd, or having the latest greatest thing from a designer brand. Its about showing off your own personal style, being who you are, not being afraid to wear your own trends, mish, mash, combo, style it up. This is your world, you be who you are, and make yourself stand out for it!

Well I was advised that I should make a cewt post. I was like, “but im cewte anyways!” See! -_- I think its because my Flickr is bipolar. Ahem, anyways! So what is cewt, fun to wear and gets my tail swishing happily? I decided to head to Bijou, which btw is one of my favorite stores. I love the designs and the textures of the clothes there, not to mention the fingernail polish packs RAR! I hadn’t been in the store lately, and the changes are really cool.
After Bijou I headed to Truth with Babyhoney Bailey. After some dancing at GOL, she mentions there is new hair. I am a hair addict, on the Mean Girls blog, there is a current poll up “if you could only buy one” my answer was a definite hair. I love hair! Need hair hair hair! Im addicted. So we show up over at Truth and put on demos, funne thing was about 12 other chicks show up right after us. Bho said “was there a notice sent out?” hahaha mebbe there was! But I liked this hair alot, and smacked it on my head.
The outfit is completed with my brand Summer Style. Froggie boots! Dun need no fancy schmancy shoes, just give me a pair of green wellies with froggie eyes and im ready to splash in the rain. Yup im a kitty that loves water. Prolly haff some Turkish Van in me somewhere. Who knowz!
There are some days that I really like mainstream fashion as opposed to the grungy urban neko style. Personally I love the Harajuka and Gawth Lolly style, but it has its time and place definitely. I like different looks, but usually is dependent on my emotional state. Today’s outfit is definitely a Playday outfit! Lets go swinging, hanging out downtown, dancing in the puddles after the rainstorm, and eating ice cream cones. Sounds good ta meh!

So what does someone who placed in the top five finalists in Miss SL Universe (3rd or 4th place however you look at it) do after all the glitz and glamor is over? Well I’ll tell you what I did. I went home and got comfortable. Yes, I am Neko. To not be Neko is difficult for me, although I tend to role play a human for some fashion events, but my heart will always be kitty.
Before I was in the modeling/fashion world in SL, I was just a Kitty DJ working all over SL; sometimes 40-55 hours a week in various clubs. I always had my own sense of style and loved putting on things “I liked” no matter if others thought it was silly or weird. After Miss SL Universe, I had a sort of an epiphany.
I realized I had stopped being myself completely, chasing after the couture dreams, wearing the gowns, the high fashion and loving the limelight. Ok, I will always love the limelight frontstage or backstage, but I need to stay true to kitty self.
Don’t get me wrong, I do not want to stop modeling, or show production, or fashion related events, but the most important message I can give any new model, or even existing model: never stop being who you are. I loved being in Miss SL Universe, I made some new friends, felt that special sense of sisterhood, rehearsed and was a part of a very special and somewhat intense experience! I will never forget it as part of my SL life.
Yet the curtain does come down, the crowd stops applauding, time crawls forward and it becomes news of the past and you find yourself looking forward to the next project, the next show, the next big thing. So I am on a journey to get back in touch with who I was when I was a fresh faced, unknown neko that entered the fashion world winning a title and joining the ranks of ASpiRE. That is who I am and who I want to be. So I present to you, wearing a fashion style that I love and consider my own special kitty brand: Summer Deadlight kickin it back oldskoolz!
So we start off with earz! I usually wear Hybrid ears and tail, but I went shopping at .:-Catnip-:., Akasha Wachmann’s shop over at Hysteria and found these “.:-CatniP-:. OutCast Ears (damaged)” It has a bloodied bandage on one ear; NO it wasn’t from a fight with one of the other Miss Universe girlz, but Im not afraid to scrap it down alley style if I have to! There are two versions with different sized chains that attach from the left ear to the nose.
Next this necklace is just too awesome. I found Primitive Designs through Serinajane Loon, who thought it would be kitty love, and of course she was right! Geyer Schnyder is the creator and he has some great clothing, boots, belts, and accessories! He even has done some hair which I love. This necklace is “Primitive Design_Wired Love” and as you can see, totally grungy with a well designed heart that is pierced and barbed wire on a three loop cord necklace.
Back to Akasha’s “.:-CatniP-:. IV bag (milk)” I found it! A milk IV! What kitty doesn’t need her milk n’ calcium! Well I certainly do, so what better way than to have it fed straight into your system with an IV! It is very detailed accessory, and comes in different version such as coffee IV, liquor IV, etc. You’ll just have to go to Catnip to find out all the flavors available! Im a good kitty I drink my milk. You need shiny white teeth, strong bones and energies to get up on the runway and shine!
So you wonder what kind of milk I like? Well I personally like soy milk, or organic 2%. I think Akasha should make a whip cream IV. That would rwak! Hmm perhaps I missed it. Woot guess another trip to .:-Catnip-:. is in store for me!
This is that really cool “/artilleri/ 8ball wrist watch” from Antonio Marat. She makes some of the coolest retro/rockabilly stuff in all of SL. The design is sleek and well you know every model should know when to be where and at what time! Punctuality is a good thing. It fits to the right wrist comfortably and looks stylish whatever your style is. Hey who said Haute Couture couldn’t handle a retro watch? It can! If it fits your style, then slap that baby on your wrist!
Well down to the necessities of shoes and socks. These are my favorite type of tube socks and they come from Krius Misfit over at “Sinistyle.” You like boots? They got some great boots and more alternative/dark/grunge/goth stuff over there. These are “SiniStyle Tube Red.” There are nine colors for both the tube socks and the gym socks (ripped/dirty version): Orange, Red, Violet, Yellow, Black, Blue, Green, Grey and Indigo. The shoes are KK Outfitters “Hi-Top Kool Kicks (Women’s Black).” They come in Hi-top and Lo-top versions, in all sorts of colors and textures. The only downside is that they are no-mod, so they seem to be a little loose, but hey, the quality is nice for converse like shoes and they are comfortable!
So there you have it! This is my outfit of the day, on my journey back to Summer from the Block (j-lo haterz i know your out there!)
