Give In to Temptation with Rebel -X-
There I was, innocently exploring a Neko mall when I spotted an amazing texture inside a store across the plaza. Neko ears in the vendor picture reassured me that potential shopping quarry was at hand, and I sauntered closer. That’s when it happened. A dress with black lace arrested my texture-loving heart and dragged my mouse (evil, singularly-minded, linden-devouring creatures that mice are) up to the “purchase” position. “Nightshade” was mine…

More Neko, goth, and vampish outfits beckoned. I temporarily assuaged my guilt with a couple of lovely men’s t-shirts that would look great on Bobby, dropping a notecard to the designer to request them as a gift. And that, cats and kittens, is how I met the lovely Rouge Darcy… a kind-hearted, sharp-witted, RL Italian artist who has clearly mastered the art of clothes making in Second Life with her store, Rebel Xtravaganza, or ‘Rebel -X-‘ as she likes to call it. I’m humbly pleased and honored to call her a friend (and a stubbornly generous one at that!).
Where does a Neko girl go, draped in textures as lovely as this? Bobby knew just the place: Crimson Shadow, another excellent Rezzable sim known for its vamp, goth, and Neko residents and patrons. It was time to explore!
Our teleport landed us into the middle of a “Best Neko” contest being held during one of Crimson Shadow’s regular afternoon DJ events… yup, we were in the right place. However vampires rule here, as attested by the glittering pools of blood, dark gothic textures, and lovely detailing in pentagrams, stained glass windows, and dancing cages.
It was almost enough to make this Neko want to shop for pale skin and fangs… and my, but Bobby’s neck was starting to look extraordinarily beautiful during the photo shoot… and then… I spotted the writing on the wall of the cave: “Give in to Temptation.” ::: smile spreads slowly across face ::: ^_^
