I just Lurve Hunts & Tongue Things!



Hihi!

First I just want to apologize for forgetting to put the socks in my storybook faun stockings last release. Sorry! It's all fixed now and I combined through my transaction history and replaced them. Yay! Ok, Tuesday the Valentine Diva Hunt I'm in starts and ends February 28th. Above is my prize for the hunt a Special Edition Pim Stole My Heart Nom-Nom. The wings don't twitch since it's a freebie but it's way cute! Ok onto quick releases!



As I said quick because I whipped these up in a couple of hours. I got side-tracked see, making my new Faun boots for the new collection coming out Friday. (So far I have 12 new pairs! I will make a bunch more during the week so it will be a BIG release next weekend!) Anyway, I thought wouldn't it be cute to make tongues with all kinds of things on them? So here we are! I made 10 tongues called Tongue Things! and 3 of them were inspired by Val-day. They are tre kyoot, and only 30L in world! I'm not sure if I will put them on the Marketplace in the future, we'll see how it goes. Right now I'm wearing the pierced one since my tongue is pierced irl. Gah, ok that's all for now! Don't forget to stop by the store for the hunt info! I have it at the store entrance.



Happy hunting and uh licking? :D

Faun & Folklore!


(Click image above to buy online.)

Hihi!

I'm gonna keep this short because my sinusitis has been kicking my ass since yesterday. I actually made packaging mistakes this release and I've only done that once, I forgot to double check like I usually do but got side-tracked with stupid Marketplace issues. Where to begin, well 2 weeks ago my Grim Gloom Storybook Faun Stockings got flagged for being in the wrong category. Well I put them back up because my Faun boots have been in that category for almost 2 years without complaint. Well today I find that the item listing has been taken down and next to it says due to intellectual property issues. At this point I was wigging out because I created and invented all of it! I call AND talk to concierge and was told I need to write a letter to the LL legal department, now I'm REALLY angry. So, I decide to look on the merchant forums to see if anyone else had this issue, and sure enough there's a JIRA already out on it!

showing wrong reason for delisting + not warning merchants when flagged

I mean come on, if the listing is wrong (which it wasn't in my case) at the very least I should be told what listing it should be in. So what happened was since I ignored the flag the listing was then taken down and get this, their default reason they put up for ALL issues is violating intellectual property rights. Gah! Now on the same token this is becoming a big problem. People are starting to use flagging items as a form of griefing. As in flag them and since you do not get ANY notification from the commerce team via e-mail you have to keep checking your merchant page daily. I only found out my stockings where taken down when I was putting up new ones today and trying to use quick fill. I guess now I will just have to keep tabs on it more carefully. Ok, enough about that, onto the releases!

I decided last week to retire my Woodland Elfin Dresses, even on the Marketplace, they were YUCKY! The only salvageable thing was the flower hair wreath, so I re-textured and reused it for this new outfit! These Flower Folk dresses come in 8 bright colors (a little brighter than I usually make so it was a nice change), and I think they are adorable! I wanted to make something fantasy, and of course Elves can wear it but I wanted Faun to be my focus.


(Click image above to buy online.)

I would say yellow and teal are my absolute favorite! In the 1st picture of this post you see one of my new Fae parasols! These are extra special because Ara reworked the color changing Fae rain script to be less laggy, I also found a really nice new hold animation, AND decided to use more vibrant and electric colors this time around (the other ones were so washed out). So I absolutely love them!


(Click image above to buy online.)

And finally new Faun stockings with Epic's NEW color picker HUD! Now you can choose any color you want for my accessories, shoes and animal attachments. So far I made these and redid some mary jane wedges, ballet flats and sneakers with these new scripts. So you know what that mean? Hell yeah, an overhaul on all my Faun boots and stockings! So you will definitely be seeing my new collection coming next month! I will be retiring and discounting all my old Faun boots to the Marketplace to make room for the new and improved ones coming out! I will be using new sculpts, textures an ideas to make them extra unique! Just wait and see! I'm really excited about the new coloring system, no more getting stuck with a set amount of colors! Ok I'm gonna go now, I need to rest even though my mind is on the new Faun/Neko/Kitsune stuff coming out soon. Sorry for the long post, I guess I couldn't keep it short lol. Also if there's spelling and grammar mistakes oh well I feel really icky. I think I've been working too hard lately. :p Anyway, until next time!

Woot!



I did it! Epic is organized and cleaned out, out with the old and in with the new! This past weekend I got rid of a lot of old crap and redid all my old vendor ads so they match my current template and style. And I must say, it looks great! No more cringing every time I walk past old poster boards from yesteryear. Woot! Now tomorrow I can start working on this Fridays release! Hint: think Faun or random animal. Ok I will update late in the week, until next time! Toodles!

Bringing Neko Back...


(Click image above to buy online.)

Hihi!

Like promised from last weeks post I'm bringing Neko back! I have new Neko, Kitsune, and some abstract droopy ears and tails at the store! These ears and tails go really well with the more recent hair texture styles you'll find from Lamb, Friday, Magika, Elikatira, and Sixty-nine just ot name a few... No more tacky shiny hair textures from 2005! I think it's why I found the Neko attachments out there (before I made mine) to be soooooo TACKY. Those shitty shiny hair textures from 5 years ago are so ugly. Besides the best (and most successful) hair designers don't use textures like that anymore. And since all of you know where the best hair is at out there, I think you will really appreciate these new attachments! Ok, I also made some clothing too, but you don't really have to be Neko for them, they make great club clothes nonetheless. Alright, I'm done blabbering on, here's the favorites of the week!


(Click image above to buy online.)

These Basic Belted Jacket sets comes in 8 different colors with lots of sculpt attachments (this is the 1st time one of my clothing outfits is using the new "add" feature). I also made cute cheapie matching boots which are also unisex! These sets comes with a jacket and a pair of hot pants and what's fun about them is you can wear as is or layer them with something else.


(Click image above to buy online.)

Okies, I posted this one because besides black, yellow is my fave! It reminds me of a very sexy rain coat. Ok now on to the attachments...



So foxy! I'm wearing these and the tail below right now. I think I fell in love with Kitsune, way more than Neko. My goal is to bring the Kitsune revolution to SL!





Now this is very near and dear to me... These are my new Neko tails. I'll admit they are a little squirrely, but I was going for that cartoon cat bushy tail. I'm sooooooo tired of those flexi tails out there that whip around, I wanted to try something different so here it is! Anyway that's pretty much it! Man once again I'm exhausted. Still have lots more to do (store tweaking and redoing some ads), but anyway, lets see what I come up with next week! Toodles!!

Catching Some Magic...


(Click image above to buy online.)

Hihi!

I told you I had more stuff I wanted to work on! I figured it was about time I made some new Fairy outfits! This time around I wanted to give these Sparkle Fairy Queen outfits a cosplay (costume play) kind of feel, I think it's fun and flirty! This weeks release may be small but it definitely packs some punch, I haven't done full outfits in a long time so enjoy!


(Click image above to buy online.)

I started out this week putting together this Frost Fairy outfit. I wanted to try a winter Fae outfit which is new for me. All of these dresses and prim attachments comes with oodles of subtle sparkling pixie dust to match. I also gave all the skirts the illusion of stuff falling of it (well I hope you see that anyway). So I would say right now this is my favorite out of the three!


(Click image above to buy online.)

Why not passion? Since Valentine's Day is a month away, I made this outfit to celebrate the romantic holiday. I LOVE this one too! It's slightly inspired by my Queen of Hearts dress I made a year ago, I figured it was about time for a Fae version.


(Click image above to buy online.)

Why not DOOM! After making the other two I decided to try to make one a little darker than my usual Fae Faire (hehe). I never really made a dark Fae outfit, this is definitely on the cute track but with a little itty bitty dark twist.

Ok, well that's it! As I was setting this new stuff out a customer at the store asked if we carried Neko ears, I had to turn them away since we discontinued them. WELL. I think I will make some Neko attachments next week, we'll see... I already wanted to work on more Faun stuff next week so I guess I will just see what happens. I never can predict what I create, it's sort of an adventure that way. Anyway toddles for now!

PS-Yay this was short and sweet but man am I tired!

Grim, gloom and a new year!


(Click image above to buy online.)

Hihi and Happy New Year!

This year my SL resolution will be to TRY keep things short and sweet. Sometimes too many words can just muddle things up, so I'm going to try and let my work speak for itself, hopefully you can understand lol. Anyway here goes! I have bunch of things I've just released and these are my absolute faves!


(Click image above to buy online.)

I've been watching A LOT of Mad Men lately. I'm VERY addicted. I think this dress has a few elements throwing back to the 1960s, with a Suicide Girl twist. Anyway, these come in 8 different colors. not a bad start for 2011


(Click image above to buy online.)

And so it begins. I decided to try a new approach to my Faun feet. Something different without giving up the fantasy feel to my usual fair. I believe this is the beginning of a very beautiful friendship. There's definitely more to come down this road.



It's hard to believe I did all this crap in 3 days, and this is where it began. I couldn't stand the way my old Faun ears, tails, and horns ads looked, and I've been meaning to do them all over, so I figured if I'm going to redo the ads I might as well redo them while I'm at it. (Meh run-on sentence. :p) So now my ears are fully mod, and come in 8 different colors with matching tails. Lots of styles too!



Yay new horns! I decided to go with a black theme in this post if you couldn't tell. All my old horns are trashed and now there's these and a bunch more. Now all horn styles comes in 5 different colors. Ok that's it. This is the shortest I can manage. Man I'm tired. :p But no worries, I have more work to get to, and I have so many things I want to make this month. So until next time!
