and I'm soooo
excited! I feel REALLY honored to be put next to designers that really are amazing and in awe with myself! I'm just really happy, because I've been working very hard and it feels good that other people recognize that! Anyway, I'm having an in-world sale starting now and throughout the weekend to celebrate! Yep, 50% off all the clothing being featured in the Lookbook

Something For My Boys!
Posted by Jaden Lexico at 4:55 AM
Well it's here! Finally! I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet! *Epic Men* by Jaden Lexico
is officially open for business! I would have released this stuff last weekend but boohoo my alt av wasn't old enough to post on Xstreet
. After some grumbling, fist shaking and tickets to LL everything is now worked out. So I'm really excited to get the ground running on this! Mind you, making Mens
clothes won't be my primary focus, but I plan on doing a lot more now that I opened the lid on this new direction! ANYWAY, here's my favorites of this opening release! Oh! And I promise to also have Mens
gifts available in the Epic VIP paid group now. Ok
, NOW on to the releases...
Of course I had to start out with Faun Jeans! Above is my take on how I see Urban Male Faun fashion. I'm also wearing unisex Nerd glasses, and a Raggy
Button Hobo Scarf, all availalbe
in the accessories section of the new department.
This is also my fave pic of this release, the hat/hair is from CheerNo
and reminds me sooo
much of Duckie
from the movie Pretty In Pink
. I think it goes with my new stuff perfectly! I'm wearing my Skeletorn
(name inspired from He-Man
) V-Neck sweater in black, with my Wrinkled & Ripped Distressed Jeans in Light Vintage, my tied button under shirt (specifically made to go under jacket layer shirts), AND my new color changing checkered chucks.[Click above to see on Xsteet!]
comes in 8 colors and divided into 2 fat packs. I would have to say these are my favorites out of the style. I love them so much I decided to feature them on Xstreet
.[Click above to see on Xsteet!]
I made all of these V-necks in 3 styles, now that you have seen Skeletorn
, I would have to say these are my second favorite out of the sets, in these colors too![Click above to see on Xsteet!]
Here they are! I think the best of the bunch this week! These Faun Jeans are available in 4 colors and 2 styles, and sold in singles and fat packs with a Viewer 2 set and alpha included. And yes we have jeans for you Urban Elves out there![Click above to see on Xsteet!]
These jeans comes in 4 colors like the Faun jeans, but come in 3 styles. What's great about them is not only are they well made and affordable, they come with 2 styles of jean cuffs for a slightly baggy leg look, and a neat folded up look. Okies, more shirts![Click above to see on Xsteet!]
I also made Polo shirts this week and these are my favorite of the 2 sets. Kinda going for an Emo surfer look.[Click above to see on Xsteet!]
And now something for completely different. On Jade I've made cute baseball tees in the past for guys and girls. So, since I love baseball tees so much, and they never go out of style, I wanted to make something a little nerdy, since I heart nerds! Anyway, I absolutely heart Albert Einstein! So there you have it! They also come in another color 4 pack but I like these the most.
Lol, and finally here's me and myself! Wearing my new unisex raggy button hobo scarves. They come in 16 colors and you can find them in the accessories section in the Mens area.
So that's it! As you can see I'm trying to take all my favorite things that I like to see guys in and mash them up into something else. This release was definitely nery emo boy inspired! Well I really hope you like it!
Until next time!
~JadenPS- I noticed the a lot of Mens clothes are EXPENSIVE! So with that said, just because it's hard to find high quality clothing for Men does mean it's right to mark prices up because of this. So, I will sell my items in the same price ranges as I sell my Womens items depending on what it is.

A New Look, New Direction & Of Course New Stuff!
Phew I'm tired! It's been a pretty busy this weekend, I decided to make some changes to Epic. What? Well I think after all the notecards and IMs I'm FINALLY ready to make a dedicated clothing line for Men. So look for it this Fall! It will have 2 major parts, just Epic the clothing will be divided into Urban Elf and Fantasy. For Fantasy I want to focus on male Fae, and fun costume play clothing, while for the Urban Elf department there will be some staple casual clothes but more Anime fashion inspired clothing. I want to try to have a little something for every guy. =) OOOh! And in order to really do it justice I created an alt, more like an alter-ego named Jaden Lexico. I think he's dead sexy. *winks* So I spent yesterday redoing the store and the department is ready to go! Woot I'm excited! Ok now on to the releases that came out this past Friday, I will try to keep it short and sweet. Above you see my fave ed shot of this past release it's called A Girl And Her Dog
. I love doing the editorial shots because I can play in PhotoShop. Ok really now on to the new releases!(Click image above to see on Xstreet.)
I'm slowly working my way into Fall clothing since it's right around the corner. Even though I started the stretchie tank dresses 1st last week, these are my favorite (well one of them anyway) this release. What's great about them is that they go with everything! You can wear them with a dress or even a t-shirt and some jeans. I really want to make stuff that you can layer to really customize your look. I also uses the same bows in my bowie black chibi chibi boots for another look to throw into the mix.(Click image above to see on Xstreet.)
Now on to ears! Finally I made some Elfy ears that I actually LOVE. Right now there's 10 different styles to kick off the collection but these 2 you see are my favorites of the bunch. They are fully mod too! I haven't put them up on Xstreet yet because I plan on redoing my Faun ears so they are mod as well. So look for them all online in the coming months!
Above is my Studded & Chained style.
Above is my Leafy Shroom style. And lastly the tank dresses. They come in 8 different colors and 3 different styles. I would have to say Red Sun is my favorite pack. Just click them to buy online.(Click image above to see on Xstreet.)

Well that's it! I have a lot of stuff on deck I want to make, I'm not sure where I would like to start 1st though. I dunno, maybe I will get started on the guys clothes? Well, we'll see how I feel tomorrow, lol so tired... Anyways, until next time!
~JadePS- I changed my blog because I will be blogging under both names.

The Epic VIP Paid Group Is Here!
As promised the VIP paid group is here! And you guys really seem to be responding well to it. Thank you! Don't worry my regular Friday release will still be tomorrow! Anyway, above you see the new subscribe-o-matic poster. Can you believe it's been over a year since I made the last one? The old one had me in clothes and shoes I don't even sell anymore at the store lol. The stuff in this pic above is new stuff I will be releasing tomorrow. So... The subscribe-o-matic group will still be running, only thing is I won't be giving gifts anymore in that group. Why? It's really not fair to the customers who support what I do here in SL. So there you have it. I'm sorry if that bothers you, but for the people who never buy anything, how is it fair that you guys get the same perks as the people who drop thousands of Lindens at my store? And it's only 250L and I promise it will be worth it! The gifts this month alone covers the enrollment fee, PLUS it's exclusive items you won't be able to get anywhere else.
So the theme for this month is Happy Kawaii Monsters. It was originally Domokun, but since it's copyrighted I thought it was best to change it. If it wasn't for my friend Delly I would have made a HUGE accidental TOS violation! But it's all good, I think it worked out to be better. Each month I will make a gift, a cheapie, and a lucky board item. So what do we have this month?
Stretchie Shirt Dresses, I love them! And you guys will love them even more with the new release I have coming out tomorrow!
Elfy Ears! This is a sneak peek of the kind of Elf Ears I will sell @ Epic. I'm slowly working on changing perms on ear items, (Faun will be in the future) so all Elf ears will be copy, modify, no transfer. So mess with them and have a blast! The ears come with a texture changer with 8 tones, for way easy coloring.
Hat & nom-noms! These are very cute! You can find them in the group only lucky board. I have it set to 2 minutes with frequent wild cards.
Phew, so there you have it! Please keep in mind that these items are exclusive for this month, and I'm already working up next months theme too! So this is launched, next major group is my Flickr group which I'm working on. I think I will start also offering Flickr contests too! So there you have it so far! I have lots to box and photograph for tomorrow, so talk to you later!
