AIFW 2009 outfits released

Hi peoples :)

Ty to everyone for attending the show last night. Since I was stressed out to the max for this show and had some RL stuff happening too, gonna be lazy now for this blog post and copy the info from the note i sent out to my members :P

Believe me, I couldn't wait (and i know some if not all of my fellow designers in the team want this too) to show you the RL pictures we were provided to work with. Out of respect for the RL "designer"and the fact i have no RL fashion background, i will keep the comments to myself but let the pictures do the talking ;)
Ready? Here we go:

This is the vintage dress, which i tried to make as close as possible to the original, however i wanted to add some waist and a belt to make it somewhat nicer. The pack includes a top on all layers, a systemskirt, skirtbase on both layers, prim belt and sculpted shoulder wrap.

Next up is "the tube". As you can see on the RL shot i got, it took a little imagination to make this dress somewhat more attractive then just being a flat red tube, in my honest opinion. So what i did, was adding the black bra straps and made the top into a singlet, and added some flary flexi prims to the bottom of the skirt to cheer it up. Includes top on all layers, systemskirt, 3 flexi prims and skirtbase on both layers.

Here we have "the towel", one of the designs i liked the most compared to the other photo's of the RL designs. Sculptie work is not my strongest feature since i'm learning, so i turned this one into a babydoll style dress, and added a sculpted knot (optional) to get the "towel"wrapped look. Included in the pack: top on all layers, skirtbase on both layers, flexi babydoll, extra top with decoration instead of sculpty knot, sculpt knot.

I saved the best for last ;)

This one i called "The Hammer", refrerring to MC Hammer who use to wear pants like these, in a longer version. When i saw this picture, i immediately knew i couldn't possibly create something like this in SL, it would require me sculptie work simply too complicated for my skills, plus i honestly don't know if it would work in SL, a piece of clothing built like this ;) So what i did was, making a poofy babydoll layered skirt and funked it up somewhat with the black transperant fur and the "flames"on the top. Pack includes: top on both layers, skirtbase both layers, flexi poof babydoll.

Finally, i've made a special guest gift for this show, however I wasn't able to give it out, the gift is included in each pack ;) (yeah, smart huh? :P)

Tillie Ariantho as usual shot some beautifull pictures of the show, which you can watch on her flickr. stream here

TAXI to mainstore

*UPDATE: omg, almost forgot this! The gorgeous, gorgeous SKINS i'm wearing in the showoutfits photo's, are done by the talented Dezi Jarvinen, an upcoming skin designer who just opened her store Staged. I know i'm a skin nitpicker, and hardly ever change skins LOL, but her work amazes me, so if you're interested have a look at her work. While you're there, pick up the lovely red dress as a gift too :) The skins are a mix of handpainting and photosourcing, the results are imo beautiful. Taxi to Staged right here! <3

WOW! That was it! I hope you enjoy the designs :) I'm working on other projects and new releases as we speak so stay tuned :)
take care all!

Divine tea candy feathers captured!

Hi people! OMG i think SL (tm) actually WORKS again :D YAY!

Long time no blog, been soooo crazy busy lately but here's an update :) New dresses and gowns are released! First the Tea Candy dress, this is something different then what you're used from me. I wanted to really make a candy-doll-hint-of-vintage-funny type of dress, in girlie girlie colors. The dress comes in several layers and two colors: babyblue and pink:

And i've just released the Divine feather gown, a long lean evening gown with fishtail type of skirt, feathers surrounding for a funky edge in three colors (all layers are included):

Also i've recieved lots of requests (ok, three LOL) for the Flakes in the shadow collection in other colors, so I did one in white/ice blue! Both dresses are available in the mainstore now that the Black Swan winter magic event is over.

Last but not least: I'm working on a one of a kind design for the Heart of Love initiative, which I actually wanted to already have up but time didnt'allow me. Please keep your eyes on this blog as im gonna put it up real soon now. You'll find a red heart donation box in my store aswell where you can donate (read here all the info about this wonderful initiative!) and every single donation is SO appreciated!

Getting ready for the Captured tradeshow and much awaited book release (hear that Impa? :P:P) tomorrow, members of my group will have an invitation sent, this event is gonna kick some serious @ss so 1pm SLT GOL sim tomorrow is the place to be! Might see you there :)

Let me first of all post the new pants i did, so for those of you not interested in all other events can skip easily ;)
Tartan pants! With flared legs to give a funky edge :) Come in both layers, 4 colors available seperately. Taxi to mainstore here!

I want to thank everyone who so generously donated to the Make a Wish foundation during the Stylista Festival! And ofcourse all the volunteers, models, hosts, musicians and designers, everyone who contributed. It has been a blast and it's wonderfull to be able to do something so needed. Congrats to Wenadrenia Soderstrom on the winning bid on my one of a kind design <3! Special warm thanks to RubyStarlight Writer for organizing this! She's just ffin awesome!!!!! My newest release which i will put out probably tonight, i'm naming after her: The Ruby babydoll dress :D Piccy?

And guess what? The mainstore is finally ready! I think i can win an award for changing my mainstore building the most often, lol, but i promise this is here to stay for a good while. Check out the lovely ballerina statue by the rezzables, which I actually won on the Black Swan NY's party (lucky me!)
