Small People Growing Bigger!

Hi there! Just wanted to give an update on the new line of toys I've got... :-)

There are now four Small People playsets out, and I am working on the next four. o/
Each playset is modify/copy (any textures are copy/transfer so you can use them with the dolls and stuff) and has a notecard explaining how to put everything together so you can get to playing with it! They are also very low prim - make a whole village of these guys. :-D
So far there are two types of houses - a conventional one and a treehouse, an art studio with a buncha original drawings and paintings by me (go ahead and add your own!!) and a remote-controlled school bus. I had a lot of fun play-testing the bus. :-)
In the works are a farm, castle, boat, airplane and the Blinging Disco! Gotta have a dance club, this is Second Life!
Stop by and take a look -Pygar Bu

OK, a second post in a row that doesn't show an avatar! I know, crazy, but I am finding I really enjoy taking photos of objects lately. One can get bored of staring at themselves all day! Haha. I would much rather stare at this super cool cotton candy machine from Crackberry.The cotton candy machine is available at the Home and Garden Expo. This item is only 12 prims!Oh, and the best part? When you touch it you get a wearable cotton candy! Awesome, right? This would be perfect for a carnival theme, a party, or just for a cute thing in your home.

Robin is in the Shoe Fair!

On 14th May 2011 · By Robin Wood · With Leave a comment
In General, Livingtree, Second Life
The 2011 Second Life® Shoe Fair opens today (May 14) at noon Pacific time, and runs through May 27th. It's one of the Big Events in SL™, with 4 sims full of stores (over 60 shoe designers.)

And I'm one of them!

The build this year is minimalist; with a clean, white, low-lag mall which really makes it easy to get to all the booths.

I set my booth up with some stunning photos taken by my friend Marianne McCann, some shoe stands, and a sort of path running down the middle...

One of the requirements of the Fair is that you make a new shoe, and that it be exclusive to the fair for the duration. That was a bit of a challenge for me, since I only found out that I was (probably) going to be in the fair on May 2! (I was confirmed some days later.) Mari and several other young friends had been begging for saddle shoes, so that's what I decided to make.

Eight days of intensive work later, I achieved saddle shoes!

While the fair lasts you can buy them there, and only there, in nine different color combinations, for L$150 a pair.… Read the rest

H&G Expo / Relay for Life / Vanda Orchid

Arctic Greenhouse is at the SL Home & Garden Expo, May 13th through May 22nd. %100 of the proceeds from all of the following new items goes directly to Relay for Life of Second Life!

The only way to get any of these new items, including the builder's Vanda Orchid kit, is to pick them up via the Relay for Life vendor at the Expo or at the Arctic Greenhouse main store. After the Expo ends on May 22nd the kit (and possibly other items) will still be available, but no longer as a Relay for Life item and also no longer at a discounted introductory price, so please stop by before the 22nd and help support a great cause!

Poche is Pleasing

So I mostly do wearable items or items you can sit on, etc. in this blog but when my friend Lae told me about Poche I checked it out and the items are sooo amazing I needed to share them!

Almost all items at this store are free! The most expensive thing I saw was 200L (I think) though most are only 50L.

The items come in a wide range of "tastes" and include food types from all over the world.

The store does have wearable items but tonight I felt like just doing close ups of the items themselves so you can get a feel for how great they are.

Feed your pixels! :)

Hope by LaVie

LaVie released a pretty new skin recently called Hope. It is sold in 3 skin tones: Pale, Normal, Sunkissed. I’m wearing it in Normal skin tone with Purple Heart makeup and LaVie’s Heidi shape here:
Hope is available in 16 gorgeous makeups and it comes with cleavage and hairbase options. I find the heavier makeups very useful with formal wear.
I always like to test skins on different face shapes before I buy. Here’s Hope on a few shapes from LaVie and on my personal shape as well. I hope these give you some idea of how it might look on you.
Go try it out for yourself. And while you’re there, join the group. You won’t be disappointed. Eyelashes: Flutter by Atomic

A Fresh Spring Lingerie Set @ INSOLENCE !

May finally arrived, days are longer now, we dare getting out with sandals, and the trees are beautiful !
Every single bit of mother nature says it is alive and in love, and so are girls !

I thought we really needed something fresh and new to revive the lingerie drawer, so I spent some time drawing some precious girly
sets again. I choose a rich embossed satin as the base fabric, and added some gathered lace frills and tiny ties to enhance the lines and catch the eye.

The cut is somewhere between classical and daring : I made a mix from a 3/4 balcony bra, revealing just a tiny bit of sexyness, together with a large girdle to draw the hips and frame the back, and small, sweet and sexy triangle panties.
This is a set to make you feel special and precious, elegant but simple , fresh and girly. A perfect spring time lingerie set !

The May sets come in five pastel tones and a pure white :

Timeless in Cream :

Little Girl, in Pink :

Fresh Green :

Aerial in Blue :

Soft in Purple :

and Pure in White :

As usual , I included many layers variations, so you can always find a way to wear the sets with any clothes or tattoo you may think about !… Read the rest

Anita by Miamai

I’m wearing Anita, a beautiful gown from Miamai. Its clean uncluttered design is made up of a soft silky fabric with a gorgeous contrasting lace border. The see-through fabric at the waist and the leg-revealing skirt are delightfully flirtatious. The bejeweled collar and shoulder strap, part of this very feminine dress, add a brilliant touch. Make a trip to Miamai if you haven’t yet been there. Monica Outlander creates gorgeous evening gowns. Her designs are classy, sensual and often have unexpected prim details that will delight you.

Evie’s Closet

Evie’s Closet is my go-to place whenever I’m looking for elegant evening wear. And you can even find the perfect gown for any themed formal affair here. Milli, an elegant and sophisticated gown by Evangeline Miles is one I wear every chance I get. It twirls beautifully as I dance. And I adore the understated print and pretty muted colors. Coppelia is one of my favorite gowns. It makes me feel bathed in luxury. Every time I wear it, I get compliments on the rich texture and perfectly put-together prims. If you like being “inspected” this is the dress for you. Coppelia was originally created for the Miss SL Universe 2010 contest. Amarie’s Bower has a lovely woodland nymph feel to it. This one is a sure-fire costume contest winner, especially when paired with the Secret Garden wreath in my hair. I love the laced front and the natural-looking leaves and tendrils at the shoulders and waist. Amarie’s Bower also comes with a short skirt for less formal occasions.… Read the rest
