These avatars come in a golden tan color, a blue grey color, and a snow white color (with leopard spots).

FH Skins (Faerie Hax): Human skin – F (waiting to see if these are still sold)
I’ve sent a notecard to the designer to see if these skins are still available.

Stay tuned…

Grendel’s Children (Lassair Griffis): Neko skin – M & F
This store has three great things going for it… 1.) a nice variety of “house cat” skins, and 2.) a super affordable price, especially considering that each “skin” package also comes with a shape, cat eyes, a matching Neko tail, and hair; and 3.) a unique little design detail: your feet and palms come with a cute little “pink paw” underside (come check out the vendor pics to see what I mean). Upon arrival, walk straight ahead and to the far wall to locate them. Options include:

Illuminati (Yukio Ida): Neko skin – M & F (temporarily unavailable)
If/when Yukio gets a chance, he’s hoping to eventually redo his Neko skin called Cheshire Cat. Me personally, I hope he will, because it’s one of the most unique I’ve seen in Second Life — think “marbelized” tiger stripe in pink, red, purple, blue, green and black/silver. Keep your paws crossed kittehs…

International Neko (Hatchy Mills)Neko skin – F
This store offers one slightly furry looking, hand-drawn female skin called Neko Skin natural.  Note: The store name used to be H&M; that logo is still shown on vendors.

Jungle VooDoo (Zoe Llewelyn) at Temenos PlaceNeko skins – M & F
Upon arrival, look for the teleporter with the “Jungle Voodoo” sign, and click on the small “Neko Skins” button beneath it — which is supposed to take you to the third floor of this building, but doesn’t always work for me, so take my slurl, come inside the building, and walk up the stairs to the third floor.

There’s a huge assortment of Neko skins with dollarbie demos as well as matching ears, tails, whiskers, and clawed feet (sold separately). All skins (whether male or female) come in a wide variety of skin tones: ivory, cream, golden, tan, chocolate, auburn (reddish brown), and ebony (dark charcoal), as well as more vivid colors such as berry (pink), blueberry (purple/blue), lavender (vivid purple), blood (crimson), and mint (green).  Current skin options include:

K&T/Kats ‘n Tats (Wiggy Bingyi)Human skin – F
This store’s “Katfight” female skin comes with two skin options that include various bruises, a black eye or bloody eyes, a split lip, a missing tooth, and red scratches. It comes as part of a package with animated ears (with ten textures), an animated tail (with a HUD), a shape, and cat eyes.

Katt Krap, upstairs from PopTart / Urban Assault (JoseDiego Silverspar): Neko skins – M & F
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you visit Katt Krap (up on the 2nd floor of the PopTart / Urban Assault store) and find even more options. What’s unique to this store?  1.) the face design, which is a blend of human with more pronounced cat markings; 2.) three different “Fantastikatts” (see below); and 3.) a variety of “domesticated cat” color patterns.  All told, there are thirty two different skin options for both men and women:

Liquor Pussy (Quark Yifu): Neko skins – M & F
Thanks to blog reader Tori for bringing this store to my attention: this is one you have to see to appreciate — the skins are probably the most “animalistic” that I’ve seen for Nekos and there are a LOT here. Alhough many skin types are not available without buying the whole avatar, the price is the same with or without an avatar purchase, so don’t worry about buying everything just to get the skin.

In the main building, skin options include Bengal Tiger, White Bengal Tiger, White Tiger (less stripes and whiter skin than Bengal), Goth Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Lynx, and housecat skins including Tabby Cat, Black Cat, and Soft Mistress/Master.

Across the street from the main store are two smaller open buildings selling more skins. On the left side are various colors of skins with a mottled texture, including Fluff, Smoke, Chocolate, Fire, Storm, Goth, and Rad. There are two additional housecat skins including Street Cat (a pretty silver furry skin) and Siam (like a Siamese cat).

On the right side you’ll find Coal Cat, White Panther, Black Panther, Grey Panther, Blue Panther, Red Panther, Soft Goth Tiger, and White Cat. So check out all three areas, and don’t forget to pick up your

FREE Neko skins available inside the main building, including “Bray” (mottled housecat fur), “Grey Tiger” (looks more blue-green to me?), and “White Tiger/Bane” (very subtly striped white skin)…. AND there are free animal eyes too!

LoveCats (LoveCat Thei): Neko skins – Female only

All skins are upstairs on the second floor; women’s skins are on one side of the building, men’s skins are on the other. All patterns are offered for male or female Nekos, and each one can be demo’d. The White Spotted Jaguar is quite a unique coloring. Niki also offers custom skin design, and will soon be releasing a line of Neko kids skins… stay tuned!

Nikita Fride Design (Nikita Fride)Neko & Human skins – M & F
This store offers a beautiful hand-drawn Tiger skin for females, featuring four different facial makeups. If you prefer a Human-type look, you’ll find a range of excellent and distinctly different skins that will help you create your own unique statement… there’s even one for males!  Here are a few of my faves:

- Skin Mazscara (female): A pale grey skin that looks stitched-together, with a woebegone, running-mascara face (located in the middle area of the store).
- Sinistar (female): A bloodied, damaged skin (also in the middle area of the store).
- Star Snake (female): A golden flush on one cheek, dark gold lips, and extra underlashes could make you a one-of-a-kind Neko girl, especially if paired with golden or white hair and ears/tail.
- Star Vamp, Star Dark, or Star Brown (female): Any of these would make a perfect goth Neko look.
- Egypt (female): Tres sexy eye make-up on this skin looks tres Neko to me!
- New Perfect (female): On the back left wall of the store is a kiosk with six vendor windows, titled Lara, Lady, Sun, Tiger, Lethi, and Roses.  These come with shape and skin, and I can’t help but admire the “Sun” and “Tiger” styles as perfect candidates for Neko girls.
- Tribal (male): Located on the far back wall of the store, let’s just say there’s nothing about this skin (and shape) that wouldn’t make me purr to see it paired with ears and a tail on a guy…

Nomine (Munchflower Zaius)Neko & Human skin – M & F
On the “Specialty” wall, Nomine’s extensive selection includes several excellent Neko skin styles with very nice soft/subtle detailing, including Siamese, Black Panther, Cheetah, and Leopard. You’ll also find a “Bloody” and “Back Alley” human style, for Nekos who tend to get in fights a lot.  ^_^

One Soul (Emily Lelouch)Neko skin – F
On the ground floor of this store, left wing, is a “Kitty Cat” skin that features leopard-like spots in the shape of heart outlines.  Comes in Nature, Goth, Fantasy, and Grey colors.  Optional tattoos in the same pattern.

PixelPaws (Valeska McMillan)Neko skins – M & F
Valeska’s skins have very nice markings in two versions: 1.) markings only on the body; 2.) markings for the body and face, plus cat eyes.  Male skins are currently available in a medium tan color; females come in medium or dark flesh-tone (watch for a special “Black Rainbows” tone soon!).

Already happy with your current skin? No problem… every one of her skin options is available as a tattoo which you can apply to your existing skin. Just look for the separate button on each vendor window.

PopTart > see Katt Krap (and come up to the 2nd floor of the store)

Primitive Designs (Geyer Schnyder)Human skins – M
Primitive Designs’ male skin “Nuro” comes in a variety of bruised, bloody and scratched up options.

Purrrrfect Kitties (Selena Chastity): Human skins – F
There are three female skins here; two of which have a “beat up” look with bruising and abrasions. Note: When you arrive at the store, walk inside, turn left, and continue walking until you enter the adjacent wing of the building. Turn right and the skins are against the back wall.

Requiem Designs (Lexi Requiem)
Beautiful feral (and beyond) Neko skins for male and female await you… but it’s more than just a skin because each package includes ALL the avatar parts — twitchy ears, short hair tail with chat menu, two sets of eyes, two sets of hair, and a modifyable shape — for both male and female in the same package (and the female skin comes in two options, with or without girlie bits). The above link is to her Xstreet store, so it’s easy to take a look via a click.

Starfuker Skins (Vry Offcourse)Neko skins – M & F
There’s a very unique skin called “Ocelot” here for both male and female Nekos.  It features very subtle spots and shading in grey, black, white, chocolate, gold (female only) and pink (female only) skin tones.

Trap (Selos Dae)Human & Neko skins – M & F
This store offers a variety of skins with very unique facial makeups, for those of you wanting a distinctive look.  Their “Neko” line is either Human-type (non-striped) or Neko-type (softly striped), for both males and females, and comes in just about every color you can imagine.

Urban Assault > see Katt Krap (and come upstairs to the 2nd floor of the store)

Urban Dare (Craven Theas)Human & Neko skins – M & F
Urban Dare pretty much has it all — human skins and neko skins, for males and females, in no less than eighteen colors (yes, you read that number right).  Neko skins come with either leopard spots or tiger stripes; all female skins come in a wide variety of makeup options.  If you would rather “nekofy” your existing skin, you can buy spotted or striped full body tattoos here too.  Tails, ears, whiskers, and eyes all sold separately.

What The Hell (Laura Boram): Human & Neko skins – M & F
Thanks to a comment from “LAC” on the Second Life Herald reprint of this story for tipping me off to this store. The skins here are excellently made, with subtle shades and tones. The “Dark Goddess Tiger” female skin is a must-see. (Editor’s note: Panthers don’t have spots except when first born, but these Panther skins do… they resemble the spots found on a leopard).

Each package includes two skins (one with Neko markings, one without), so it’s like getting both a Human and a Neko skin in the same purchase. Each package also includes a shape (or you can keep your own), along with two sets of eyes (Panther and Neko). The female skins also include lip piercings. Demo versions of all skins are available. Skins are located on the 3rd floor of the store. Styles include:

- Deviance Skin – Black Panther: (male) This is the only male Neko skin in the store. It’s medium-grey and comes with or without dark charcoal leopard spots. You can find it in the corner, on the opposite side of the store from female skins.
– Dark Deviance Skin – Red Panther: (female) a medium-grey skin that comes with or without red leopard spots.
– Natural Deviance Skin – Black Panther: (female) a tan skin color that comes with or without dark charcoal leopard spots.
– Natural Deviance Skin – Brown Panther (female) a tan skin color that comes with or without brown leopard spots.
– Natural Deviance Skin – Red Panther (female) a tan skin that comes with or without dark red and black leopard spots.
– Natural Deviance Skin – Tiger (female) a tan skin color that comes with or without very beautifully colored/patterned tiger stripes.
– Dark Goddess Skin – Black Panther (female) Just like the male “dark deviance” skin, this is a medium-grey skin that comes with or without black leopard spots.
– Dark Goddess Skin – Tiger (female) a medium-grey skin that comes with or without tiger stripes in probably the best pattern and colors I’ve seen in a skin of this type, which are particularly lovely set against the dark color of this skin.
– Dark Goddess Skin – Cuts and Bruises: (female) a medium-grey Human skin that will make you look like a little feral kitty.

Other types of skins are available here, including devil, witch, vampire, “winter blue,” and more.

  2. And there I go spending too much again…

  3. You missed 3 that I love, Lapointe and Bastchild has male and female in a variety of colors/spots/stripes. Falln Angels skins has some really cool ones. De La Fae comes with tail options in addition to the tail and ears that come with the sets. The sets also come with options so that you don’t have to wear clothes with the skins if you don’t want to.

    In order to preserve enough time for ongoing blog feature stories, your list is probably going to take me a while to get through (you have no idea how long the main list took me!). I’ll probably start by adding SLURLs directly to your comment list for Nekos who crave the full meal deal shopping adventure (and will add selected ones to the main list depending on what I find, as/when I have time to get there myself).

    Thank you SO much for making this Neko Skins page so thorough!!
