Monaco Anyone?

Spring Break ends today for me, and while I didn't get as much done as I want (does one ever?) I did get some things accomplished.

I finally introduced Walk on the Beach, I wanted tops to go with it. We introduced 2 to sell with the cute capri pants with sculpty cuffs!

Ohhhhhh, and speaking of sculpty, I learned how to texture sculpties this week! Why didn't someone tell me how fun that is earlier?? So watch out, I forsee numerous sculpty parts in our future :)

I started with a pair of His and Her cowboy hats for Relay for Life, available separately for $L 50 donations. Make SURE you check our ACS RFL vendor before you buy so you'll know it's an official one. I'd like to keep this blog PG or I'd post what I think about the people ripping those off - slime doesn't even BEGIN to describe them. Make sure you check all vendors you want to donate to and receive a gift, they have a nifty page that pops up with info certifying the vendors this year. Gotta love technology. They will have http://slrfl.net/kiosks/certify at the beginning of the url -with the matching code from the vendor.

And I may have saved the best for last here, hard to say since my creations are somewhat eccletic in genre! We introduced our first bikini, Monaco. It comes in a tri-pack of Cobalt, Lime, and Tango Red, or each color individually for those of you who hate blue or green or red, and you know who you are!

ANDDDDDDD we are offering a spiffy Orange version for FREE just for checking out the store! Careful, the Wolf Gift package with the big red bow will bite you if you miss out on this free offer.

Catch you in game,

And the Winners Are *drum roll please*

Our Wolf Pet Creations Get to Know Us Wolf Hunt is over and we have winners!! We had soooo much fun and we actually had entries!!!! LOTS of them. I was actually quite pleased - and alot of people said they had fun doing it too, so I'm putting this event down as a mission accomplished!

Each participant was assigned a number as they turned in their folders with the wolves, and then we drew 4 numbers from all the entries received. http://www.random.org is the website that generated the numbers.

Our winners were Deana Stawberry - no I didn't leave out the "r" - she's a special no R berry - that's her in the picture up there with her $L One THOUSAND linden dollars check in front of the store. We gave her real lindens too since not too many places take my check in second life.

Corus Ivory won the roll for 1st place and she celebrated her $L 750 winnings with some virtual champagne!

Dominata Iwish was our 2nd place winnner, she can shop til she drops with an extra $L 500.

3rd Place went to Kruz Kumaki, who checked out with $L 250 linden dollars.

Congrats to all the winners and to everyone who participated! We hope y'all had as much fun as we did.

Let's do it again sometime soon!

Wish you well,

Lawn Party

Whew! Our first party I will put down to a success in spite of being borked by SL for most of it. Lately SL has been freezing me up and kicking me out. Even after a complete delete and reinstall. Anyway, I took some pictures at the end of the party. Someone remind me to hire a photographer to take pictures when I need pictures. Second Life and I seem to have some sort of Event Photophobia affair going on.

You can see the fabulous stage built by our friend and neighbor Kasolai Nighbor. He builds the cool flintstone inspired cars you can find in my shop. He and Wolf Bain are the ones who fix up the land every time I mess with it - so I'm quite fond of him - plus he changes things up to just the way I like them - like this stage!

You can see the Fairgrounds we set up here. I love fairs. Being able to "ride" fun machines is one reason I love Second Life so very much. I actually loved the carousel from the second I saw it and snapped it up right away - then came the ferris wheel but I just rented the Frisbee - until we get more funds - It's loads of fun! The skydiving from Cubey's rocked too!! I bought the bubble machine so if ya need to borrow them just let me know and I can hook you up. Otherwise I just set the carousel out now and then and ride it myself. Does that make me weird?

From this angle you can see the store just in the background - I love my store, however, it's almost time for a bigger one.

We had so much fun at this party we'll be doing it again. Probably in May or June. We'll have some minor events between now and then - but look for another big one in a couple of months. I made a new years resolution to do one event per quarter.

Thanks to all our new friends who attended, and we hope to see you at the next one!

Two Fashion Shows in Two Weeks

Two fashion shows in two weeks and our big event at Wolf Pet Creations is this week ! I was fairly certain I had moments of insanity and now we know for sure!

I have to say having items you made in a fashion show makes one feel positively fabulous even if they were beginner shows so to speak. What a great time I had, and a learning experience as well.

For the Caledonia show I used items I already had made and up for sale. It was STILL a little hectic but I have to say superbly put on by Candie Rau, Storm Octavia, and Joseph Surface. It was fun and I learned alot about how to both "be" in a show and "put" on a show. Unfortunately I was so excited watching everything that I didn't remember to take photo's.

My friend Lana Shostakovich of Events by Lana was doing a Fashion Show and Art Exhibit at Vincent's Hollow Beach Retreat. Since I'd hired her to run our Lawn Party on March 8th, I said sure I'd love to present something, and that I'd give her 3 outfits for it, a casual, a formal, and a swim suit.

I went back to my skybox and looked around and thought to myself --- "Self, do I make swim suits?" --- and then I went into a modality of panic because the answer was, "Ummm, no, you do not appear to have a single swim suit that you've made anywhere." After much thought and walking around the wrong Vincent sim - I went to the Vincent Van Gogh sim and listening to Starry Starry Night, we have *drum roll please* - Vincent's Hope - my first swim suit creation. After the initial headache of trying to get the little triangle in front to go away (tricky that little triangle) I think I like creating swim suits and plan to make many more.

Unfortunately, this time I DID remember at Vincent Hollow that I needed to take photo's, so I took a "practice" photo to get the folder on the hard drive set up, and "boom" SL crash to desktop. I made it back in time for the finale. Here is Fanch Morgwain in our "Enigma" formal gown at the show.

We think you'll like it the simple elegance of it. You can check it out in world at the store. Well I have to get back to get things ready for the party on Saturday! Come have fun with us!
