I found a cool pic the other day:

COMMISSION – ALLISON ANDREWS by *IDarkShadowI on deviantART

I liked it so much that I felt an urge to simulate the appearance a bit using readily available resources in Second Life on one of my main avatar characters.
It’s not a perfect match but meh – it’s close enough to make me happy…

A Borked SL Avatar by *mudslinger-ning on deviantART

Taken a long time ago in a former Second Life area. I found this avatar that had borked – in that the body was there but the owner had logged out. (The glitch at the time prevented some people from logging back in).

This one was originally riding a broom stick – but I thought I’d position my cheetah in place to make it look like she’s riding a pussy through the skies.

It takes a bit of timing to get some shots just right – dealing with the delayed press of the camera button on taking and saving the digital image – to getting the feline subject to be looking in the right direction just as the picture is taken.

One trick I do is when I am ready to take the shot (and often starting to press the shutter button) I make a small pop or hiss noise with my mouth or click my fingers just above or near the lens or direction I want the cat to face.

If they stare long enough I can then capture nice detailed shots – if they keep moving I just get more blurry pics.
