A little this & that



As I'm able to sit for longer in my computer chair, I'm finally getting around to some projects that have been on the back burner for awhile.

One of the most common requests I get is "I love that outfit? Can you make it in [insert your favorite color here]."

I may eventually get around to making all my outfits in every color of the rainbow, but in the mean time, I've been rounding out sets so that they have three color options.

If you like the sapphire and ruby La Danseuse saloon girl dresses, you'll love the new one in emerald:


The popular amethyst and emerald Le Pianiste gowns are now joined by an onyx black version:



The Pluche line becomes a threesome with the addition of an onyx black gown to the ruby and sapphire sets:



Last, but not least, the La Ranchette line has had a complete overhaul, to include a new onyx set, a dark topaz, and a dark ruby, all featuring more prominent Native American embroidered trim:



What's the best part of this new round of new releases? I'm implementing a new sales policy -- all new releases will be 50% off retail for the first week of their debut!… Read the rest

Underground Hotspot and New Minigame

Underground, far beneath the Arctic Greenhouse, an underground cavern filled with lava and active volcanoes has been uncovered. This geothermal hotspot is accessible by way of a portal which has appeared near the landing point of Alternate Reality Island.



Once inside, feel free to explore this new area, or play the brand new freebie-minigame. Solve the SlidePuzzle you find there and win a free vase with yellow and white flowers.




Stay tuned for further developments coming soon!

Welcome to a New Build :)

On 30th May 2010 · By Siyu · With Leave a comment

Some people have been wondering if the store is open again, and the answer is yes! I've been on a slightly "soft" opening while I work out issues with my vendors. The thing is, there have been some technical difficulties and I was hoping to have them resolved before I posted about the sim, but no such luck.

It's not the grand opening I was hoping for, with a big unveiling of a whole new look with a whole new card system. Of course since the actual building process went so well, fate wanted to make sure I knew I was her bitch and so decided to throw other things at me to show me that no, you can't plan for everything. The card system is still down, but being worked on, and some of my vendors are missing due to a very obscure SL security measure that's made me unable to rez them. I have a ticket open and I'm still waiting for a resolution, I'm really hoping that they'll be able to help but if not, I will have to redo them. Some of the vendors are still a bit screwy, so please bear with me while I iron out the kinks.… Read the rest

Montagne Noire is back!



It seems my recuperation from surgery has generated a creative streak in me, as I have just finished another new gown, "Brode"!


Brode (English, "Embroidered") is a practical cotton day gown with floral embroidery, a perfect spring gown for the lady who wishes to take a leisurely stroll in a stylish and comfortable suit. It comes in garnet, jade and turquoise, and retails for 250L!

I've also put out a special 1L "dollarbie" gift in the entry foyer of the Caledon shop, "Le Merle" (French, "little blackbird"), a rich onyx black velvet and beaded lace gown and matching onyx hat, that previously retailed for 250L. Enjoy!

Also now available is "Dans le Rose" (French, "In the Pink"), a special edition breast cancer awareness gown featuring rich velveteen brocade and satin adorned with pink ribbons and flowers.

The gown is now on sale for 50L (originally 350L) at my Caledon shop! Additionally, all regular priced ladies, mens & childrens clothing in pink and red continue to be discounted to 50L for the foreseeable future (only at the Caledon location).… Read the rest

Sim to be Closed on 5/25

On 23rd May 2010 · By Siyu · With Leave a comment
In Illusions, Second Life
It's finally ready. I've tweaked my textures, revamped my vendors, primped my products and looked over my layout. The store is almost ready to be put in place, so I'll be closing the sim on Tuesday, the 25th in order to get things into place.

I can't say for sure how long the sim will be closed, but I'll be sure to announce the minute it opens again to Masqueraderie and on my Plurk. I'll try to get an entry out as well to detail what's new :)

One of the new things will be a card system that works with my current menu vendors. Problem is, there's currently a technical glitch which prevents the full amount to be refunded if you cancel the transaction when using your card, so I want to be sure it's fixed before I open. If it isn't, I'll have to leave the card system unavailable until it's fixed. I'm still very excited about it, when it's working I think it's something you guys will really enjoy.

Until then, I'm just incredibly excited about my store becoming this:

Booyah.

Deadwood Juniper Bonsai

New Bonsai tree at Arctic Greenhouse, this carefully crafted piece uses a combination of small alpha branches, supported by a solid backdrop to minimize and almost eliminate traditional flicker issues. It features stylish deadwood pieces and a realistic planter.




There are two versions of this bonsai, first the "plain" or flowerless version, which weighs in at 16 prims and is only available inworld. Second, the flower-covered large version is 26 prims, with orchids growing through the deadwood pieces and yellow daisies on the ground. The flower-covered version is available both inworld and on XStreetSL. While the flower-covered one is larger, and the plain one is smaller and on a table - they both come mod/transfer so you can resize them to fit any space.

OK, it's "strawberry" but my toddler says "strawbaby" and I think it's freaking cute.
Second best part about this outfit (after the fact that it is covered in berries of course) is that it is free! Yay!

I'm back home and working hard. I'm taking inventory of everything I have out in the store right now, making revisions to the vendors and updating everything that needs it. This is the big clean-up I've been wanting to do for ages. It feels good to take stock of everything, go through older items and revise the prices, or do new pictures for items that aren't well represented. I'm sorting and grouping items in new ways, revising old scripts, and trying out new organizations for the store layout.

The store build itself is, for the most part, done. There are a couple little things that I have in the works for it, but the prims are in place, the layout is solid, and the exterior is set. I'm proud to show you a few more teaser pictures, taken with viewer 2's gorgeous shadows.



It doesn't even look like SL, does it?

I'm excited and proud to have this finally in the works, and progress with the vendors is coming along (despite it being even more tedious than doing ear skin tones, which I didn't think was possible).… Read the rest

Hi everyone!

My deepest apologies if you visited [Pink Fuel] earlier to only find no Project Themeory item. I originally withdrew from participating this week because of RL but there was a minor miscommunication error between myself and the organizers and I was listed as a participant this week even though I had nothing prepared. I put all the blame on myself and not the organizers for this error. The Project Themeory organizers do a great job of keeping everything running and coming up with interesting themes.

I feel so guilty for all the frustrated people that tp'ed in and waited patiently for everything to rez only to find nothing __… Read the rest
