There’s this thing with cats and boxes. Corvus is no different! Also, he’s a big goofball.
I like creative and unique product packaging and this box from Kuro is a great example!

First of all, my paw says hi!
That’s why I didn’t really plan to write a blog post today. I considered Berry’s new teach me something meme, but didn’t really know what to write about.
But now that everyone is raging about the new flickr layout, I thought I could make a super quick tutorial on how to kinda get back to the old look and feel. It’s really simple.
After you clicked “Edit”, this is what your page will look like:
Maybe I should add, this is really meant as an option to edit names and descriptions of your pics and not as an alternate way of viewing them. But for me, it does have all the information I want to see – faves and views, not just comments, for example. Now that I know where it is, I can live with the new look of flickr.
A couple days ago, I picked up a mesh photo studio from Abranimations. Usually, my pictures are created on the fly, without a static studio setup. But since it was free (it no longer is), I thought I’d gave this a try and here’s the result. Now, I don’t do item reviews or anything, but the studio is sure fun to play around with!
The picture also shows, Corv can pull off colourful outfits just as well as his usual monochromatic looks.

Today’s post will be in a slightly different format than usual. First of all, it’s not about one of my characters and their adventures, but about a place. Secondly, this place was not built / put together just for the purpose of a blogpost.
Follow me to Mirror Lake. As it lies hidden in a secluded little area, surrounded by small mountains, it is not easy to find Mirror House. The humble residence of the Szpiegel family was built by Corv’s great-grandfather Erich. Recently the Kitteh inherited it from his great-aunt.
When he moved in, Corvus left most of the things as they were. He never really knew any of his family and being surrounded by their belongings makes him feel closer to them. He did, however, add a few touches of his own here and there.
Most of the time, the Kitteh and his friends hang out by the fire, with the old-fashioned, but cosy kitchen right behind them. The furniture may be a little old and faded, but everything is still in good working order.
The bedroom area has probably seen the most changes. Great-aunt’s frilly and moth-eaten bed wasn’t quite Corv’s taste and he replaced it with something that doesn’t smell of dust and moth balls, and doesn’t have springs that poke your fur when you seriously try to catnap.
I hope you enjoyed the little tour around the house – it is a private place and normally only open to select guests.
There are too many items in the pictures to list individually, so I am going to provide a list of shopws where items are from, and landmarks if possible. I hope I don’t forget anyone… if you see something I missed, please let me know!

The second part of the heroes series. Corv’s character of choice would be the barbarian.
Despite the fact, Corvus is all fluff and purrs, one should not forget he is a tiger, not a housecat. Unlike his feral conspecifics, however, he has a choice between following his instincts or acting reasonable. And usually, he chooses to be a friendly kitteh.
But in roleplay, even he cannot resist the urge to follow his dark, wild instincts. This is why the barbarian would be the perfect class for him.

Ok, now that I got your attention… in my first post about Corvus, I forgot to include a full body picture and I didn’t say anything about his outfit.
This is currently my favourite outfit for Corvus for several reasons. First of all, it is rather unique. You don’t see many guys wearing kilts in SL, and if they do, those are either traditional, or gorean kilts. The comfy, gothy style suits Corv very well, in my opinion. And, after removing all customisation scripts, it’s very performance-friendly, too.
