Newbie Style Challenge II

Gogo announced Newbie Style Challenge II - another round of her very popular challenge from last year. The rules are the same (see Gogo's post for full guidelines) but this time the spending limit has been raised to 550L$.

I've made a couple - a girl and a boy, just like last year, but this time I decided to create dark-skinned avatars, for ethnic variety and as it turned out for a more difficult challenge, because freebie/inexpensive dark skins are very hard to find.

I wanted to give personality to created avatars with their outfits and accessories, and I really like how they look. I hope you do as well!

Vinyl record texture can be changed through easy menu. Each earring script works separately, so that you can have a different colour on the left and a different colour on the right earring.

Freebie time: Artists prim kit

I came across this cute freebie when I was exploring SL8B sims. It's called 'Artists prim kit' and it presents prims we use every day in SL. The side of the box says:

Basic prim kit for artists in Second Life. Just add technique, emotion & originality.

I think it can serve as a really adorable piece of decoration for designers' workshops. Unfortunately I don't have that many spare prims on my parcel (yet I had to pick it up), but maybe you do :) Collect yours while SL8B exhibits are still there!

TP to freebie location: LEA Exhibit at SL8B

New release: Summer Vine

I made some sculpted vine to save prims on my parcel, and I decided to release it, so you can enjoy it too! It let me reduce 35 prims of vines that I used before to only 4 prims!

Bring summer to your garden with these vivid green vines climbing the fence, the porch or the buildings. Summer vine comes in a variety of 1-prim sculpted shapes in the package to fit your pixel gardening needs and help you save prims.

I rezzed an example inside the store and of course the store porch now uses my vines as well, so you can see it used live :)

New release: Spring Skybox

Spring edition of my skybox is finally here! Sunny window, pastel curtains and sakura flowers everywhere - it must be springtime!

[MAGIC NOOK] Spring Skybox

I'm releasing the skybox at The Dressing Room, which means you can get it cheaper (only 70L$!) for the next two weeks. Later I will place the skybox at [MAGIC NOOK] main store for regular price.

The skybox is sized about 10m x 10m x 5m and it should fit even small plots of land. It is packaged in a rezzer for easy set up. Skybox window is controlled through a scripted menu, which allows you to change inner and outer window opacity. There's also a particle emitter included with three options: sakura flowers, leaves or no particles at all, and finally there are sunlight beams, yay!

Happy living! <3
