Finally something new!

Posted in Club Wear at 3:52 pm by Catt

RL has been a right royal … well you know how that ends ๐Ÿ™‚ So much has happened in my SL world that I have just been too busy to deal with and it sucks! A couple of positives that I have to tell you about first. I got blogged! Which is seriously cool, but I am a horrible horrible person and I didn’t thank Ryker ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So I’m making this my official, if somewhat late, thankyou ::blows kisses::

The next truly awesome news is that I won the lingerie category of the EFA design awards. Yeah me! And of course RL was so insane at that point I couldn’t even make the awards ceremony ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

All this nasty RL stuff has also made it seriously difficult to release anything new. I had the following piece finished since before Christmas but have only just managed to get enough time to take photo’s etc recently. And it is only available at my main store until I can find more time somewhere to put it up on SLX etc.

This is something very much out of the norm for me, so hopefully I managed to pull it off ๐Ÿ™‚

Starz is available in 9 colours and comes as a cute mini dress or you can wear it with the boy shorts as a really daring play suit!

Although I dislike the idea of making yet another sales pic just for this blog, I’m really starting to hate uploading alllll of the pictures now that I’m making so many different colours in my outfits. So here is the new picture look, its big, its really big ๐Ÿ™‚ so I’m not sure if this is the way to go yet. But, here it is anyway, don’t forget to click on the little picture to view the goodness in all its big glory ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh and I’ve been playing on and off for a few months now with something completely not fashion in SL ๐Ÿ™‚ย  SL is exotic art.ย  You can check it out here, be aware it contains pixelated nudity so probably NSFW.

News at 10, wool is no longer considered frumpy!!

‘Specially not when its cut like this little dress ๐Ÿ™‚ Its out in the store now, will be a couple of days before it makes SLX/Onrez etc. Honestly I think this one speaks for itself and really doesnt need me babbling on about it.ย ย Dont forgetย the clickity game, click the pics to get a bigger view!

Something old is new again

Posted in Club Wear at 10:23 pm by Catt

One of the first dresses I ever made in SL is this little black thing.

512blackstrap.jpg

Oh and how I hate it! The side straps don’t match up, the area over the breasts has an extremely odd shape and a jagged edge, and whats with the dragon?!?!?! I have tried retiring it several times but keep getting requests for it and surprisingly it is a reasonably good seller. Well this weekend I just couldn’t stand it any longer and decided if it must remain in my store then it has to be updated!

And I will never, ever, play with side straps again. Ever. Now I know why they didn’t meet in the first place. The number of hours I wasted getting them right, and I ended up cheating in a few places. My hats off to anyone that does them well, because I wont be spending that amount of time again!

Having endured the frustration of making the damned thing I decided to have some fun with it and use a few interesting fabric textures. Panic not you purists out there, there is a black version ๐Ÿ™‚

As always let your mouse do the clicking for bigger pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

Right so, there’s supposed to be a designer about here somewhere?

Despite rumors to the contrary I have not been spirited away by aliens or been locked away in the funny farm (although there are days I think that’s only a matter of time). But I have been trapped in RL, and totally unmotivated the few times I’ve managed to actually log onto SL. But I know thats no excuse! So to try and make amends, I’ve more than just the usual single release today ๐Ÿ˜€ I had several requests to release my RFL outfit in different colours, so I did. I have called this one Devi after the Sanskrit word for Goddess and have deliberately not included the jacket that was available with the RFL outfit and of course, neither will I offer the outfit in pink.

I have always loved the TV show Andromedia and most especially the outfits that Beka Valentine wears. She manages to be sexy and mean all at the same time without showing all of that nasty skin lol. So I was watching my DVDs the other day and of course I just had to get the design her outfit inspired out of my head and into SL. That is why my second offering this week is “Beka”. I used a moleskin look to the texture of the clothing, and it includes two different top versions, the pants and several glove options. Gloves you say? What do we need gloves for?

Well ๐Ÿ™‚

The gloves started life simply as the bottom part of the sleeve where it wraps around the middle finger but then purely by accident I noticed it makes some cool different looks to the sleeve of the longer shirt. Hopefully you can see it in the pic, either way I included a few options for you to play with.

Oh and this outfit screams to be worn with some bad-guy kicking boots so I included the pants on the underwear layer as well.

Not fashion related, but then not everything in my store is, but I had a request to make a couple different models of my jukeboxes. And so I did. The pictures here aren’t very good because, well never mind, just because. But you can see what they look like. Oh and I decided to create a scripted set as well, so if you own the land you place it on or deed it to group on group land, it will control the music URL. There are 7 pre-programed channels on the jukebox. Actually I created the jukebox and my darling husband created the script inside ๐Ÿ™‚ and while he was at it he built a more modern version of the jukebox which is also available for sale.

And if you have managed to get this far… ๐Ÿ˜€ … I am thinking of trying my hand at shoes.ย  Yes yes I know, my apathy towards prims is well documented so its practically a given that at some stage I will want to pick them up and throw them against a convenient virtual wall, but I’m going to try anyway.ย  So there!

Hopefully my next lengthy absence wont be because the prims finally drove me batty and they dragged me away in a white suit – lol.

Is the agony over yet?

Posted in Club Wear at 8:27 pm by Catt

ย So, I finished it. The dress looks nothing like what I wanted, but it works. I’m actually still working on the prims a little so this is more of a preview than a release. I thought I had it done and was celebrating the end of the devil prims when the friends I had sent preview copies to gently tapped me on the shoulder and pointed out the odd one or two problems.

So I’m working on it, and I’m hoping that it will be released this evening. But just in case, here is your preview ๐Ÿ™‚ oh and if you click on the thumbnail to see the bigger picture just be aware its a much bigger picture ::whispers:: 1024×512, it ain’t small!

Edit:ย  Its uppp, have at it ๐Ÿ™‚

So changing ones sleep schedule from working nights to working days is not as easy as it sounds! Ugg. Surprisingly it does wonderful things for the creative process. ๐Ÿ˜€ So instead of no releases like I expected I have three!

Given that its already Sunday I’ve decided to run a red spot sale for the entire week! This means that any of my items marked with a red spot will be 30% cheaper than normal!

First new release today is my take on the little black dress. Now I’ve said in the past and I’ll take the opportunity to repeat here ๐Ÿ™‚ prims and I don’t play nice together. But I started thinking while working on this dress….. maybe I’m just too much of a perfectionist. Is the average buyer happy to have prims that don’t exactly match in colour, prims on dresses that come out of the butt instead of the waist, prims that fly up around your head when you walk! Black worked for me because it almost hides the prim location, but any other colour…. forget it, it looks horrible!

On that note ::laughs:: my little black dress.

I found the beginnings of a swimsuit design languishing on my hard drive that I decided just begged to be completed. And so it was, in 4 colours.

I’ve teamed up with Skydive SL to produce their skydiving suits and added a few more to my line.

New Release

Posted in Club Wear at 5:33 am by Catt

So its out ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve called this little piece Shanghai Spirit. As you can see it comes in 4 colours and as usual with each new piece I happen to think its my best so far – lol.

But I have a problem. I just can’t get the sales posters to look as good as the actual product. Which is quite funny if you think about it as most buyers complain that the final product is never as good as the pictures. And I have no idea how to classify this set. Is it club wear? Evening? Lingerie? I dont think it belongs in casual wear.

All that aside, each set includes a bodysuit on both the shirt/undershirt layer, the pants and two pairs of stockings. One pure black and the other with matching colour tops.

So here it is….. Shanghai Spirit.

Its definitely the best I’ve done so far and hopefully I can keep this level of quality up because in my not so humble opinion its awesome ::laughs::

Elegant not formal

Posted in Club Wear at 1:34 pm by Catt

Todays release is a simple dress, but elegant in its simplicity.ย  For those weddings or slightly formal evenings where you dont want to wear a dress so big it takes up the entire room ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I think it speaks for itself so enough from me.

Lucky for you I’m impatient

Posted in Casual Wear, Club Wear at 9:17 pm by Catt

Approximately 5 hours ago I set up this new blog, and made a post saying that my new items would be updated after I had imported everything from the old blog.ย  ::points below::

Well I released this piece today and by god Iโ€™m going to blog about it today ๐Ÿ™‚

When I had finished this outfit I thought it had a faint Egyptian feel to it, not that I had aimed for that but hey it worked.ย  So, as one is wont to do, I went web surfing to try and find just the right Egyptian goddess to name it after.ย  Next time Iโ€™m not just going to look at the first web site I hit!ย  The name I chose was Qetesh, supposedly the goddess of love and beauty.ย  Well someone pointed me to the wiki entry for Qetesh and I promise I didnโ€™t know she was all about sex when I picked the name!!!

::laughs::ย  regardless I really like this one, Iโ€™m thinking it probably the best outfit Iโ€™ve done to date.
