HAIR: Jack

Jack is a hat hair. It has the same color choices as Reloaded (I now work with a standard pallet) and optional pom pom (you can set it to none in the script.)

This is a one script texture changer so please give it a second to retexture the pompom.

I love this hair and I hope others do too.

2009 End of the Year report from SL

Check it out.

K fellow users can you help me out on a little project?

I would like to collect some of the key uuuh, lets call them 'ungoods' in the community from 2009 and match it up to these stats LL has spit out.

Ungoods like:
When was NeilLife & Cryolife released to the community?

When was SLX changed to charge for listings?

When did the copybox exploit begin?

And any others you can think of?

Basically, SL needs a more realistic report to make 2010 predictions.

HAIR: Duck

So this is me dicking around in blender trying to create all my sculpts on the avatar in it before exporting to SL. So the result is... it's a high head hugging fit. I like it though.

HAIR: Carnegie

I redid the blonde color in my blondes. email me if you bought it with a REAL transaction number (yes, I now have to stress 'real') and I will pass you the new one assuming you want it.

HAIR: Davinci reloaded NEW HAIR TEXTURES

OH hai.

Guess who got an A last semester?
That's right. I did. So all that stress. All that panic. All that lack of me time and not having been able to do laundry for a month and a half was totally worth it.
Right right???

I mean I'm one step closer to a master's degree in computer science.

I'm on vacation now, which is good because I might have killed myself if I didn't get to have one soon. I finally got a chance to do something I've been attempting all year. REDO MY GAWDDAMN HAIR TEXTURES.


They are made!!!
They don't look like crap!!!!
I have new colors!!!
They come in packs of 3!!!!


I am going to redo some of my favorite hairs, but I probably won't rebuild every hair in the store :/ I want to try to make new stuff too.

First up on the rebuild is Davinci Reloaded. You might remember the davinci hair. It was my first hat hair using sculpties. This one I tried really hard to make the LOD better. It's.. kinda better. Please look at the demo.

The old Davinci load is now sold in packs fo $L50. I still wear that hair, it's not like it's crummy. I just felt weird selling it for the same price as the new one.

GRITTY KITTY: Winter Choice 09 gift

YOu can only get this gift by participating in the Winter Choice Stamp Card event.

I will be selling scripted versions of these sheep parts in other colors, but not until I have the time to script them. ;)

This CSR version is painty, as are all my CSR themed gifts.



WINTER CHOICE STARTS DEC 20TH <-- the stamp card thing.

COMING SOON: other new stuff.

Fuck you linden labs, I just found a new toy

Develop your own video games.

I have not installed it yet, but my coworker has and says it's good. I will report back if it's the best thing ever.

I'm very busy IRL.
I've been on a little lately, but I'm not really interested in anything beyond playing in blender and making silly things for my own amusement. I really like the new den dou skins though and I've been editing my shape to work with them.

When I'm not doing creative stuff, as I couldn't do for a few weeks now, I tend to go insane. I really need a creative hobby. SL was my creative hobby but honestly, it's kinda gross atm. Nothing like putting work into something that gets shit on by content rippers or whatever.

Neat thing:

Please keep contacting Cobalt Maladay for customer service. I pay him to do it. If you don't contact him he isn't earning the slave wages I'm paying him.

I'm not dead (but I'm close)

Hi. Not dead. Having issues with day job work, freelance work, school homework, and a bitch of a cold.

Please contact COBALT MALADAY for customer questions.
That name again is COBALT MALADAY.

What's the name of the Gritty Kitty customer service representative?

Who do I contact for customer service issues?

I dunno where stuff is, Noam can you tell me?

If you have never watched The Last Dragon, you must some how acquire this cinematic masterpiece and watch it immediately.

When I grow up, I want to be Sho'nuff the shogun of Harlem.


Some stuff has been made free....

And you can get it at the main store in koreshan. Among the things are these 2 hairs (there are 6 free hairs total)

I am tired of filing DMCAs about these fucking hairs. If you see them on SLX, tell the seller they are dumbasses for selling freebie hair. Also tell them to get STDs and die. <3

offlineyness extrended this weekend

I got on for a little while last week to handle customer stuff, but this weekend I had went to a coding conference and tomorrow I have school after work.

I'm all brain bursty with ideas of sites and applications I want to build.

This upcoming Thursday I am getting all 4 wisdom teeth pulled and I may end up on super duper percoset high for this upcoming weekend.

So yeah..
This has been a slow year for Gritty Kitty. I would like to apologize for that. Second life has always been a hobby, and this year I've had so much personal growth in what I do for a career, trying to grow all those skills and get a name for myself in my field has also become a hobby.

I am not quitting or anything. This isn't one of those "peace out bitches" blog posts that are kinda condescending because the author is like "I found better things to do with my time than stupid ol' second life, unlike you people who have an abundance of free time." I hate those.

I have made stuff when I do get online.This is just a "sorry I'm wicked busy lately, I haven't forgotten about my beloved store" blog post. I made jackets. They are all built and sculpted and textured in game. I made necklaces. I made new belts. I have a shitton of extra underpants and T shirts that didn't make it into hunts. There is stuff, it's just not finished & packaged stuff. I have a really short attention span so if I don't log on for a while I will start a new project and totally forget that I already had something like 90% finished.

Another thing that is kinda messing me up this year is all the theft. Just when I got comfortable with it, the cryolife viewer comes out and makes me unstable again. I make a lot of things for myself, that I don't sell until I get tired of it and some I never sell because they are mine. They define my avatar.

The vast majority of my store are things I made for myself and wore until I got tired of it. Because I now have a cryolife detector, I don't even like leaving my house in like.. my shape and skin. I ruth myself. O_O This makes the whole "I made this just for me to feel cool and wear around" thing an issue because where the heck am I going to wear my stuff? My skybox? Oh wow, there is some serious satisfaction from a job well done right there...
:/ It's like either I only wear it for the sake of me and only me seeing it while I stand in a T pose and build stuff, or I go out in the world and risk people just taking my personal shit that I worked really hard on.

I know I need to mentally get to that level where I just accept that shit happens and I can't protect myself, but I can tell you right now, I'm just raged about it. It sucks. It sucks and I feel voiceless in the community and I feel voiceless to Linden Labs. A contact from fucking microsoft will respond to me if I tweet "guh vista is doing this annoying weird thing" and try to help, but if I try to find someone from LL to answer a question I have about the TOS, it's impossible.

I need to end this post.
Please send ALL notecard to Cobalt Maladay first and he will get back to you. And if it's something that requires my attention he'll email me. He can do like most stuff though. Hrm.. I need to pay him. Oops!

Happy 3 day weekend

I am offline this fine fine.. whatever holiday this is. mem-bor day...
I will be online again... I dunno. When I get a chance. Leave me notecards and I will get back to you.

You know what would be awesome? If SL let you set up an answering machine or status where you could put this shit, so all the nooblets could see it. But that's too much like something we could use, so instead, they'll roll out with something like a page in our profiles that lists all of our friends and our current location and what we are wearing or maybe a second set of thumbs added to the avatar mesh! \o/ oooh joy!

Thursday, August 27, 2009


I did not make these graphics, nor am I claiming to have. Nor did I really work too hard on the seams. BUT HEY GUESS WHAT?! Free tee shirts. For you! Originally for me.. to wear.. but... *sighs* I'm done. You can have them now.

Starting tomorrow (FRIDAY AUGUST 28TH) check out The Festivale Poop Hunt* and collect poops and TP rolls and get free crap.

Yes. It's a wicked gross theme for a hunt.

*I, in no way, condone poop. In fact I am against it. If I could I'd never poop again. Cause it's gross and smells.

Skybox: Into the woods

76 prims. My idea was to make a kinda fairy tale woodland skybox but it looks more swampy than I originally planned. I dig it though.
There is no DEMO at the moment. I am having issues with copybotters and low prims so I am kinda... struggling to figure out what I should do next.

New things! I bring to you new things!!

Guess who can't count and writes this blog! Me. The above headphones have 9 options. 9. I missed the zombie pinup girl. I am having issues getting my shit reinstalled on my PC so I can't fix the ad just now. But let it be known.. 9 options!! NIIIIIIINNNNNE!
This chair comes in color packs. You get 2 colors. I think they are transfer so if you are like HOOOBOYUGLY, you can give them to your friends. :D As one is aught to do with ugly things. The pillow is texture change, I do not remember how many textures I made... I think 12. *stares* And that little face pillow, I has that IRL. You can has that IRL too. OK Nevermind, went to grab the link and it's sold out on the site. Well, crapballs people! If you'd like some overpriced pillows you can check out Upperplayground and maybe that one will come back in stock.

These are rugs. I needed another rug... I found a rad pattern for AI, I textured it, I recolored it and thus a rug was born!

All these things come with CSR cards.

WARNING: I am offline

Windows Vista decided that second life was bad and deleted it from my system. Either my computer is telling me that I should take some time and spend it outside or with my boyfriend, or it's got a virus and it's just being a dick.

Assuming #2, last night I reformatted my computer and installed Windows 7. It took from when I got home at 7pm to 1am. I had to back everything up, then I downloaded the wrong version, then I had the wrong key, then I had to reinstall everything-which I still haven't done, I gave up after the drivers- So I am still offline. I haven't installed Second Life yet. I just remembered what a bitch it was to set up Blender the way I had it before and that's going to be a fun nightmare to relive.

In other news, I saw a great movie about a guy with swords for hands and bought a great movie called Executive Koala about a japanese business man who goes on a killing spree and just happens to be a giant koala. And yes, it was as awesome as it sounds.

Thank you to everyone who has purchased items from me since the Spring. Change adds up, and even if you only bought like 1 hair from me that was the USD equivalent of $0.40, you helped me raise the money I needed to pay for my class this fall. The money that will be reimbursed by my company if I get a B... but I had to pay for it out of pocket first and it was really really expensive (I had a small panic attack after submitting my CC info.) I enrolled yesterday and I start attending at the end of the month. ZOMG I AM GOING TO GET A MASTERS DEGREE! happy happy joy joy! ^_^

Monday, July 27, 2009

Nom nom nom

It's one of those days where I'm almost positive that I'm going to have a panic attack for no explainable reason.

Summer Choice 2009!!

It's that time again where you get the stamp cards in select marked vendors in my main store. Once you get the stamp cards you wait until the event begins and the stampers out side all the participating stores will turn on. Then you will be able to stamp your cards and trade them in for exclusive items.

Do I know dates? Of course I don't! I totally live with my head up by butt. I will keep you all posted though.

My gift this year is a painter's apron. I'm doing a theme now, the first time I did the event it was a gross paint covered bag full of art supplies much like the one I used to use in school, Winter was the sketchbook, and summer is this apron.

If I get invited back again, you bet the gift will be art themed again.

Bless you Greendream for being more on the ball than I am.
The stampy part of the event begins: August 1st through the 31st
And check out the official website for more information:

tiny tiny rant as my browser freezes

You know what's great about the second Life viewer?

Sometimes, when you shut it down it will lag for a second. And you'll hear ambient sounds.

You'll wonder where those sounds came from because when in game, you have those turned off.

And then you'll look at your system sound card and see not one, but three versions of second life that the sound card says are still open.

You check but the game does not appear to be open, you closed that an hour ago before you took a shower.

But then you check system resources, and it seems that something named Second Life is taking up fucking 25K.

Could turning it off at least work properly? Come on! It can make my CS3 run like shit when it's on, but when it's off SL should not be using resources ffs.

Hair: Butters & some other stuff

Butters has scripted bows and it's cute. The End. I'd write more but I don't have much else to say. ; )

Some lanterns are out too. (stamp cards included)

Honig Glasses

I love these glasses soo hard!!! Mostly cause one of the lense options has reflected in it. RED TUBE IS PORNOGRAPHY! DO NOT GO THERE IF YOU ARE AT WORK OR A DELICATED FRAGILE PERSON SCARED OF PRIVATE PARTS.

Anyway, all the frames are darker colors and the lenses have reflections in them as well as normal lenses like black , rosey, yellow etc.

[2:09] Helyanwe Vindaloo: you Prevert.

Another satisfied customer! :D

Hair & Glasses: Klaar & Ducklips

I've been wanting to redo AOI for a while, and while keeping that in mind I ended up with Klaar, which is different than AOI but still has pinned back bangs. I imagine it's what Cain looks like if you pull the bangs back.

Ducklips are called that because of the below reference picture. Look at her lips? Why is she doing that? It's not a kissy face. It's not an attractive face. I can't imagine why you'd do that expression unless you were playing charades and your word was "mentally handicapped duck."
Sweet glasses though. These are texture scripted with more retroy pastel-ish color as well as basic black and white.

HAIR & bake sale stuff

Available at Koreshan. It's sculpted. I'm kinda in an awkward trying to figure some stuff out phase atm.

Inspiration: From Starfighter, a anime porn comic I found on Deviant art. Woooo porn.


THE EXTREMELY FANCEH SQUID HAT: A knitting/fishing happy accident.
Available this weekend during the Koreshan Bale sale. It's not scripted because I didn't get my texture script in time ^^; so there are 5 colors in the box.

UPDATE: Linden Labs... Are you fucking kidding me?

[17:26] Draconic Lioncourt: oh so llabs was a total douche to me over the phone
[17:26] Draconic Lioncourt: trying to tell me i had to cut down on textures
[17:26] Draconic Lioncourt: and after 30 min of telling them we know wtf we are talking about he magically finds some physics object that was colliding and removes it and oh look at that the sim works again

And paying them thousands of dollars a year is something we do becaaaause? Note that Draconic is a private island owner. She's a premium member. What fucking part of that at all sounds premium?

Fucking A, I only pay $10 a month for my gym membership and the staff there once spent 30 minutes of their time looking for my keys.

Friday, June 12, 2009

It's so true

Kris Straub is a genius. Read his comics at

I just started playing D&D with my friends, it's been about 2 months now and I'm a level 4 halfling Beastmaster ranger. I fucking love it so much. I don't think I would have played this in highschool, but now in my mid 20s I seem to be just the right age.
I own 3 sets of dice and they are all sparkly. :D I don't own my own mini yet, but I made one out of fimo to represent my pet bear.

The Koreshan Lag Issue

Lately Cobalt has been getting a lot of complaints about lag and greyness in my main store in Koreshan.
I don't have these issues, but then my computer is so godly that it exists on another realm of awesome. I realize the average SL user does not have a $5K gaming PC so I'll just pretend you all have macs which run SL like a piece of shit.

Some fun facts about Koreshan:
  • Koreshan is a full sim (15K prims)
  • Koreshan is on the same shitty lowest class servers that are used to host OPEN SIMS. (homesteads are on better servers than Koreshan)
  • Draconic owns Koreshan, it's her and Chica's baby.
  • Upgrading Koreshan to a proper server is more money than Draconic can afford
  • The additional tier fee is also more money than Draconic can afford atm
  • Draconic is way too sweet a person to get on people's asses about paying rent so as far as I know maybe 2-3 people are actually paying her rent right now.
  • We do not use images larger than 512X512 although last time we complained about lag, LL said the proper size to use is 256 X256 which would look like complete shit.
  • I try to turn off scripts everywhere when I can to reduce lag from users coming in

Draconic and Chicanery currently are working a lot IRL. Since it's hard to get hold of them and I really have no control over the sim, bitching out Linden labs is on hold for now.

First thing I'm going to do (maybe in a second or two since I just realized I brought my mac to work and it has SL on it), is I'm going to restart the sim. I don't know when the last time it got restarted was, and sometimes it just needs that to make it stop failing.

Second, I'm going to try to get Draconic to bitch a fit at Linden Labs over preformance. In theory I bet if you bitch a fit enough they might grandfather you into a better server, but it's Linden Labs. They are pretty confident that if you left, someone would just come in and take your place.

So that's the state of Koreshan atm.

The bakesale is scheduled to be this weekend but if the preformance doesn't improve, I might tell Chica we have to postpone it.

There is an option to delete the resize script on this bag if you so want.

WANTED: Art community

Does anyone know a small(ish) art community where you can post pictures and get redlines and critiques?

Kind of like what Yerf used to do a billion years ago when I was on yerf.

HAIR: Trilam

Trinitee sent me a picture for this hair idea, but I can't find that picture anymore. :/ so I drew a picture of it so I'd know to make it. See below.
Oh wait nevermind, I just found the picture!

I want this rug

It's in the clearance area of Urban outfitters. I just don't know if I want to spend $100 on a rug.. even if it's a super awesome rug.

Oh as I write this B gives me the thumbs up on it. OK now I need to buy it cause it's so full of awesome.

I think my favorite part of adulthood is the accumulation of nice stuff. I'm hoping by the time I'm 30, my apartment (soon to be condo) will be fancy and awesome... just I can only buy one part of it at a time.
I've only recently thrown out the milk crates and beanbag chairs.

Monday, May 25, 2009


Last October I got it in my head that I wanted deer parts. I started some and I didn't like them. I used the antlers from that initial try in Hunting season.
Then I wandered around with Fade looking for deer parts recently but I didn't like anything I found. After a day of searching I figured it would be easier to make them, so I started making them again from scratch. Untextured I didn't like them. I was like meeeeeeeeeeeh.

But then this weekend I popped on that posing stand that had the ears to work on a bag and I was like heeey wait, these sculpts aren't too bad. And I proceeded to procrastinate finishing my bag by finishing the deer parts.

Long boring story. Yes. I know.

These have some animation, but not a lot. Click the ear and it twitches, type and they wiggle, do /32 sadears and they go sad. The tail just wiggles.
They come in 3 colors and they are L$250 a color (includes ears, tail & antlers).

XD is basically Barista without the hat combined with my RL hair on my head right now... just maybe a little shorter and thinner. I has a lot of hair.

I'm never taking this off my little pixel head.

It's called XD because I wanted to name it after something to do with me IRL and my position at work is as an XD. Which is a stupid abbreviation for Experience Design. Also I drive a Scion XD. And XD is the emote I use the most when talking to Bill while we are at work.

Oh man it's so true.

The Penthouse in a mag

Although it's not credited/mentioned or acknowledged in any way, My Penthouse skybox that I spent a shit ton of hours texturing and drawing the city line for was in ROLE Magazine.
Check it out.

Look at this fucking hipster

Is something one of my coworkers keeps saying to me when I wear my kinda too huge headphones @ work.

I got this rad font and made a shirt from it.
There is a website but... the shirts they sell on it are lame.

HAIR: Kinder

I didn't get my script yet so... I'm using the old one but liberally :/

Wednesday, May 13, 2009


Angry moo.

I need to find a prim scrubber that targets only my old retexturer scripts and not my toaster scripts. The one the retexture thing came with deletes everything.


Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Check it out peoples!

God I love that Clawtooth is "Clawtooth by Clawtooth".
If that man made a movie, he's get like 90% of the credits.
