The Skins Are In!
Well weeks of work finally paid off. Epic Skins are here! (Shapes coming soon!) Woot! I'm so excited! I have the models wearing some of them as we speak. I really hope you guys like em! This is my Emo Gurl skin shown above, I would have to say it's one of my favorites of the debut. I think since there are awesome photo-realistic designers out there like LAQ & Redgrave I think I will focus my skins on kawaii, fantasy and cosplay. So definitely stay tuned! So this release was the debut of my skins and some cute dresses, shoes & accessories. Anyway here are the highlights! Yay & in all my Ad pics I'm using Epic skins!
Electric Blonde-I wanted to make a fun and fresh skin pack that was inspired by one of my recent releases of Electric L.O.V.E. Leggings and Poison Racerback Tees. These come in 6 tones and 6 makeups, with a cleavage skin for each.
Dollie Doll-One of Ravyn's favorites, mine too! This one is special because I already have LOTS of dresses in mind for this skin collection. What's great about it is that it goes good with fae clothes & doll clothes. But honestly what makes it so dear to me is that I haven't seen doll skins available in a dark tone. Not shown above however, I made this skin in a chocolate skin tone which I love. The tone reminds me of a porcelain doll my mom gave me when I was growing up. These skins are available in 6 tones & makeups with a cleavage skin for each.
Bollywood Baby! When I started this Bolly Gurl set I was trying to go for a African American look but it was turning Indian to me so I went with it. This set has makeups in lots of bright colors, all inspired by Bollywood. I even have one makeup with a fashion Bindi. I tried to make the makeups usable in lots of outfits like Fae and fantasy, I think it really works! Now onto clothes and shoes!Click image above to see these dresses on Xstreet!
My new Tic-Tac-Toe Rosie Mini Ballet Dresses are absolutely my favorite of the Summer season so far! I made the dresses with a black and white top to switch out for any mood. I think it can work great as a fresh and flirty casual dresses, of a sexy and sophisticated formal cocktail dress.Click image above to see these dresses on Xstreet!
Hehe looks great with Epic Skins too! These dresses comes in 8 colors and has a adorable rose attached to the waist. In store you will find accessories also inspired by these dresses. We have mod rose sandals (which are in the Lucky chair right now) shown with the yellow dress above, Rosie Color Changing Ballet flats AND studded Mary Janes that can color change 15 different colors too! But my favorite of the accessories this release? My cheapie Black Lace Sunglasses!
These sleek glasses were inspired by some adorable lace glasses I saw Rihanna wearing on the red carpet. So I wanted to translate them into SL to go with my new dresses. I LOVE them! And I hope you do too! Anyways that's it for now, I'm tired lol. And next week I want to get started on some new skins & cosplay dresses all before the Xstreet changes on the 30th. Gah then I will have to fix all my listings, but at least we're getting store fronts! Woot! Anyway until next time, and keep enjoying your Summer!

Skinning is work!
From the wise words of Ru Paul, "you better work!" Well that's what we've been doing! The new Epic Skins & Shapes department is almost finished and man it's work! Mind you I've been having a blast skinning and making some cute stuffs though! Ok, our skins are divided into 2 types: Generation One
and Generation Two
. Generation One is more geared towards the SL Noob. Classic starter skins in both fantasy and mainstream, that has nice cleavage options and are very affordable. Generation Two
now, well that's where I've been having the most fun! More makeup options and everything from fantasy to more fun and avant garde aspects of SL. Not gonna say much but you'll see! Anyways here's a little bitty sneak peak. Enjoy! And see you when the new section opens! Woot!

New Stuff & a New Store? (Well Kinda...)Hihi
A new store? Well sorta... We've decided to start offering fantasy short shapes, AND fantasy skins! I'm hoping for them to have a teen, young and fresh look with lots of neat options thrown in. Modern with an a little bit of fantasy, you know, what Epic is about. I think I can do it & Ravyn's
going to be making the shapes. See, I've been asked a lot about my shape I made and I think it's about time we helped people to make smaller sized shapes that are in proportion. Fae, Pixie-like ever so kawaii
ones! So what you see at the store is the new section for this new direction, and we're very excited! I've spruced up the store changing lots of textures, and the layout, and I must say, I REALLY love it! The face lift I gave the store really is doing wonders. Well at least it's not nagging me anymore lol
. Here's a shot of it, it really makes the store look fuller and brightens it up a bit inside too!
I took out the cheapies
garden. *gasp* I know, but I think it's about time we offer a certain standard of clothing. My old stuff was nice for what it was, but now I've learned a lot and I think everyone deserves a certain level of quality, so here we are! I also cut back the back rooms of the store and added the windows you see here to the entrances of those sections. I hope you like it! Anyway, now on to the new stuff!
(Click image to see on Xstreet!
Rockabilly time! I've been in a country kind of way lately and these pretties just morphed into what you see here! I looked at a lot of vintage sun dresses, and I hope I remained true to the concept of rockabilly. When making these dirty old rockabilly dresses, I was picturing June Carter in my head just singing away looking ever so cute, so this is what I got. I would say that these are one of my favorite items I made this Summer season. The come in 10 different colors with each being very unique unto itself. So adorable! I started cowboy boots many months ago, but just haven't felt inspired to rework them, and this dresses sure did help! So you can wear them with cowboy boots or Faun stockings!
Of course I had to make dirty stockings to match! My Faun Fushion
Country Bowie Stockings I absolutely love, because of the patches. I wanted to make a way for Faun to wear my rockabilly dresses too so I came up with a country Faun look. The bows change 15 different colors and have my new sculpty
hooves in the pack instead of my old ones. Oh and it's the cheapest pair we have in the store! Click the picture to see on Xstreet.
And now for some Summer hotness!
New poison Racerback
tanks and designer leggings! I've been soooo
tired of making regular tanks, that I decided to go for a racerback
which we don't have at the store. Well we do now! They come in 3 fat packs and I would have to say this electric pack is my favorite. And I think it's yours too! You can't really see it in this picture but there are nipples too for an extra sexy look! These are my favorite tops at the moment because you can do so much with them.Just click the image above to see on Xstreet.
In the promo card you'll also see leggings for Faun too! I had to make something to go with these new tanks that is all Fauny
! But my favorite out of all the leggings I would have to say my L.O.V.E. leggings! I made these specifically to match the electric pack of racerbacks
and I really loves these too! You really can mix it up and have fun with these colors, they really compliment each other so well!Just click the picture to see on Xstreet
. And my Summer nom-nom favorite is Yummie Ices! You know, like the Flavor-Ice you use to eat during the Summer when you were growing up? Can't forget those! These are really cheap at the store (5L!) so you won't find them on Xstreet.
So there you have it! Now on to working on skins and such. I'm putting some clothing ideas I have and Fae Faire's
annual Summer of Love sale on hold to launch this. I'm really excited that we're going in this direction! It's only going to get better from here. Woot
! So until next time! Happy Summer!

That's right new blog art that's all Summery! I also redid my profile pic, and profile art work. Tis' all inspired by the wonderfully AWESOME next gen skins at Redgrave. I'm now wearing Zuri in Cacao. I bought the bundle and I looooove it. It's a very nice balance in everything I've been looking for in a skin (gah years!) that is on the money to my real life skin tone. Yay! Anyways, a new, BIG, release this weekend for Epic, and since it's Summer you're darn tootin' it's on sale too because it's Summer stuffs silly. Woot! Talk to you soon!
