New Katty Dolls for Spring!

I know, I know…after a post like the last one with all the unicorn and anticorn excitement, Katty Dolls might seem pretty tame.  But, I just couldn’t bring myself to do unholy things to these cute ‘lil dolls.  I must have a shred of decency left…somewhere!  (And I needed a break from the fierce battles…it just keeps escalating in Starlust and in the I (heart) Starlust update group!  SO INTENSE, dood!)

These 27 new Katty Dolls have little hoodies to look like bunnehs, bees, black sheep, and lambs and are just the cutest for Spring!  They each come with a “Priority 4” pose, which translated into non-posemaker speak, means you won’t be flinging your doll around with your AO if it has lower priority poses.  (I don’t know about you, but I hate looking like a cranky child when I’m holding onto something, so I dig the thoughtfulness with the P4 pose!)

You can pick up these cuties at Katat0nik’s main location in Axis Mundi!  The bunnehs, bees, lambs, and black sheep are available for sale and the clown Katty Dolls are given away by the Prize Orb!

Stay tuned to the blog for exciting information about an upcoming hunt at Loco Pocos Island that Katat0nik is participating in!

“Making Memories” with Katat0nik

Something’s afoot at the Starlust Motel.  Something that has caused two warring factions to break out amongst its residents.  Both sides have been and remain locked in a fierce battle to the death, the likes of which Second Life® has never witnessed.  And likely, never will again.

That something?

Unicorns.  And glitter.

Le gaspe!


Starlustland Becomes “Sparkle Village?”

I cautiously traversed the battleground to investigate and seek out one of the Unicorn Warlords (or is it warladies?), Apatia Hammerer.  With a last name like that, I knew she would be fierce.  When I finally found her, I was lucky that she didn’t behead me or make me suffer any similar and quite unfortunate fate.  Strangely enough, she was quite nice!  She recounted the following about how the war began:

“One day, Allegory [Malaprop] and I were like, ‘Hey…you know we love unicorns.  And glitter.  Starlustland needs more unicorns and glitter.  Is that a good idea?  Oh!  And sex.  Let’s make them unicorn sex islands?  Yeah?  Ok…yeah…that’s more “us.” Let’s do it!'”

When the decision was made, Allegory Malaprop, Apatia’s co-Warlord, proceeded to make a decree to all Starlustland, that read as follows:

“The Starlust Motel shall henceforth be known as Sparkle Village.  It is a testament to our love, and our love of unicorns.  In a carnal way.”

The Unicorn Opposition Front Strikes Back

Not everyone was in agreement with Apatia and Allegory’s ideas about redecorating.  As horny unicorns and glitter started to adorn the grounds of newly renamed “Sparkle Village,” Stein Shilova and Melatonin Hax vehemently condemned the changes and became the leaders of the resistance movement against the unicorns.

Apatia’s gave me a rather colorful account of how the battle began by saying, “Holy s**t!  When Allegory and I told Stein and Melatonin…boy did they flip out.  I mean flip out!”  Heated words went flying between the two parties, such as Melatonin (allegedly) shouting, “Jesus f***ing Christ, Appy!  You f***ing know I hate unicorns so f***ing much!”

Woah.

Neither Stein Shilova or Melatonin Hax could be reached for comment at the time this article went to press.  I suspect they were both busy hatching clever schemes against the unicorns.

Hundreds Rush to Join the Fight

Soon, shop owners, customers, and other assorted but equally inflamed hangers around the motel formerly known as “The Starlust” began to join in in the fray, either in support or in opposition to the unicorns and the glitter.  Guerrilla-style warfare now rages between the Pro-Unicorn and Anti-Unicorn factions, complete with incendiary propaganda such as tee-shirts and signs.

The Anti-Unicorn Gecko Gorilla and Katat0nik-clad Adaire DeCuir stand off in front of a propaganda sign decrying the arrival of the unicorns.

Katat0nik Takes a Stand

Katat0nik Pidgeon, the proprietor of a shop that inhabits the war-torn motel, has officially come out in support of the unicorns.  I ran into her while investigating the war and she said, “When I first saw the sex unicorns at the Starlust, I laughed so hard!  I had no idea that Allegory and Apatia liked unicorns…you know…that much!  But then…”

Kat trailed off mid-story for a moment and her cheeks began to flush with what I can only describe as a deep-seated rage.  “…But then I saw the evil ‘SAY NO TO UNICORNS!’ signs!  I heard about the drama that has been going on in Starlustland from a fellow shop owner, and while I don’t want to get caught up in drama…”  She did a twirl in a brightly colored dress that was adorned with unicorns making sweet love before finishing her sentence.  “…I was inspired to make this dress in support of the unicorns, and I’m placing it in my shop for free for all those in favor of the cause!”

When I told Katat0nik that I too supported the unicorns, she graciously handed me a copy of the very same dress she was wearing that she had named “Making Memories.”  I ducked off to change, unable to resist wearing the pro-unicorn couture.  When I came back to continue to talking with Katat0nik, I was suddenly overcome by the surroundings.  Two unicorns in bed in post-coital bliss.  Another unicorn lay close by, seductively looking up at me.  I looked at Kat.  She looked at me.  And then…

Making Memories

Kat and Adaire fell against each other, consumed by unicorn fever!

Kat and Adaire fell against each other, consumed by unicorn fever!

At first, we just swooned, unable to handle the overwhelming sexual unicorn frolicking while wearing dresses depicting…sexual unicorn frolicking!  But soon, things started to heat up…

Swept up in the unicornyness, Adaire reached for Katat0nik...in a very inappropriate place.

Things started happening in a rush, both of us powerless to stop it!  A touch.  A kiss.  A caress.  A…

Katat0nik and Adaire join the other unicorns in their sexual debauchery!

Unable to resist the power of the Unicorns, Katat0nik and Adaire engage in sexual debauchery!

The rest of the story?  Well…it’s too sordid for print.  But in my defense, I blame Stein and Melatonin for the above-documented (and probably of blackmail quality) “frolicking.”  They must have put something in the water.  Yeah….!

Joining the Movement with the “Making Memories” Dress

You too can stop by the lobby of the Starlust Motel for your complimentary dress that supports the Pro-Unicorn faction within Starlustland.  But when you arrive, be on the upmost alert for crazed Anti-Unicorn fighters.  And, be careful…you just might start making your own memories like Katat0nik and I did!

The Hunt is On in the Magic of Oz!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the awesome Magic of Oz sim is hosting the St. Patrick’s Cuardach (that means “seek” or “search” in Gaelic!) hunt with many of its fabulous vendors participating, including the lovely Katat0nik!  Katat0nik has three gifts in the hunt –  two versions of a shamrock-themed dress and a cute little shamrock hat!

The Magic of Oz Hunt Prizes!

The Magic of Oz Hunt Prizes!

How does it work?  You tp into the Magic of Oz sim and start looking for gold coins that appear randomly all over the place.  When you find one, click on it!  The coin will tell you which store it is for.  It may take awhile to get a Katat0nik coin, but don’t worry!  It just takes a little patience to hunt them down.

Once you get a coin, you have to find that shop location within the sim.  Head towards the gold pot within the store, WEAR the gold coin you found, and click on the COIN!  The pot will gift you with your prize.

Are you one of the lucky ones to get the Katat0nik prizes?  We’d love to see you show it off!  Snap a picture and post it to the Katat0nik Flickr Group.  We’ll post some of the best ones!  AND, stay tuned for…dun dun dun…a Katat0nik Flickr contest to be announced soon!

Also, this Thursday, there will be a Banshee Ball at the Magic of Oz from 7-9 pm SL.  Wander over to the Witch’s Castle in your best dark fae-themed outfit for a chance to win prizes and listen to fantastic tunes by DJ Sierra Sugar.  Hope to see you there for the fun!

Katat0nik Comes to Loco Pocos!

Exciting news!  Katat0nik has teamed up with Damien Fate, the ingenious creator of Loco PocosLoco Pocos Island is a one-in-a-kind sim that has so many places to discover and explore with a magical story interwoven throughout.  The island is inhabited by “loco pocos,” which loosely translated, means “crazy tines.”  The truly unique, customizable, and sculpted avatars that are available with an easy-to-use HUD include bunnies, koalas, mice, squirrels, and more!

After terrorizing Kat with my detective shenanigans, I asked about her decision to start creating fashion for Loco Pocos avatars and how that came about.  She said, “A Loco Pocos employee named Calberd Ofarrel was hosting a fishing contest at the Island last week and I went to check it out.  I asked about making Loco Pocos clothing and accessories because I love the avatars so much, and he told me that it’s not only ok, but encouraged!  Calberd was kind enough to give me a huuuuge tour of the Loco Pocos Island after the contest and I instantly became obsessed!”

Before you roll your eyes and say, “Ugh, tinies…I’m a fashionista!  Not a skunk!,” check out Katat0nik’s first creation for Loco Pocos – her Dollie Dress!

The dress comes with eight texture options that are interchangeable through the Loco Pocos HUD, and you can mix and match different textures for the top and skirt parts of the dress!  There are light and dark striped and solid color versions, each with a heart or skull option.  There are practically infinite possibilities, and all in one dress!

Katat0nik also created eyes for the Loco Pocos avatars with 11 color options that are also changeable through the HUD, and you can even make them mismatched!  It’s as easy as attaching and clicking, and…BAM!  You’re a Loco Pocos fashionista!

I asked Kat what she liked most about creating her first dress for Loco Pocos, and she told me, “I love the many options in the HUD that lets you customize everything and I LOVE having the option available to make stuff that will interact with the HUD too. I wish human avs came with special huds like the Loco Pocos one!”  Kat plans to make more Loco Pocos versions of her current dresses for sale, and may eventually start doing new releases with human and Loco Pocos versions coming out at the same time!

Free Loco Pocos Avatar!

Free Loco Pocos Avatar!

Curious about having your own Loco Pocos avatar but not 100% sure it’s for you?  Good news!  You can pick up your very own “Benny” bunneh avatar (male or female options) for FREE at the Loco Pocos Island landing point.  It’s a fabulous way to give it a go and play with the HUD before investing in the awesome apparel and accessories.  Within five minutes, I myself was well on my way to Loco Pocos obsession!

Katat0nik fans have already expressed their excitement about a new way to indulge in the Katat0nik-ness, and Kat herself couldn’t be more enthusiastic about her new endeavor, saying, “I love how Damien is so welcoming and how he made Loco Pocos into a friendly community.  It’s really awesome!”

Visit the Loco Pocos Boutique today for your very own Dollie Dress and set of color-change eyes, and stay tuned for more Loco Pocos clothing and accessory releases and blog posts about adventures through the sim!

Hoho!  Detective Adaire DeCuir has gathered some very important information!  While on a mission to find out about sekret pretties that are coming to a Katat0nik shop near you, I spied Kat herself working on her latest creation!

Le gaspe!  It is Katat0niks bum!

Le gaspe! It is Katat0nik's bum!

The dress is tentatively called (le!) cupcake and is certainly (le!) nom-a-licious.  (Pardon to all the French peoples I may be inadvertently insulting.  I’m trying to channel a little Inspector Jacques Clouseau mixed in with some Sherlock Holmes.  Hopefully you’ll agree Kat’s dress is so the cuteness that you won’t mind my cultural faux pas!)

I have spied the Cupcake dress!

I have spied the Cupcake dress!

My sources tell me the dress will be released in a few days and is tentatively called “Cupcake!”  And, there will be at least 6 colors!  Le rejoice!  Stay tuned to the blog or Katat0nik’s update group for the release of the newest yum yum.
