LM of our shop changed

15-12-2007

Yes, is has... agian... Happy because we are now at a better spot. But on the other hand, the SL-url keeps changing so people visiting this site end up at an old location because I (yes.. all my fault) keep forgetting to change the SL-url. Well, it has been updated! Happy shopping eveyone :)

New item: Lita 1.0

08-12-2007

Sexy Ellen wearing the set LitaYesterday I finished one of the pieces which I have created a long time ago. This black colored set is called Lita and it is the first non-lingerie set I've created. (except for the Ava classic pieces..) Again, it is an aquired taste and you'll like it or you don't :) Comments so far have been really positive...

I will probably make a color variant of this piece since the original design was in the color red. The black version can be bought in-world and on SL Marketplace.

Busy times

05-12-2007

Arg... wrote an item and yes...... forgot to save before leaving my computer alone for an hour of two... Windows update came along and rebooted my pc... yay! Ok.. here is an abstract from that post: I'm busy in rl, I want o make clothing, I went to a party....

nah.. that is no fun to read... :)

Oh well.. here goes again. I've been on the road for my rl company and so there has been little time left to be doing something in or with second life... I posted a lot of pictures on Flickr (for me it was a lot...) but right now there is simply no time to work on that.. I have some really cool ideas in mind, but they will require a lot time before they are realized. I also have some new idea's for clothing but they too have to wait untill I've got more time and energy! I want to finish the items in the ideas section soon and a jacket, dress and male clothing are on my also on my wanted list!

Yesterday I did something which I hadn't done for a long time: I went to a party in SL. It was a garden party with good music. Suze invited me and when I was there I also met the lovely Nur Moo who's original pictures I like very much. All in all, I had a very nice evening!

Oh.. I am looking for a new skin too.. something different again... I've got my skin for a year now an I guess there is a lot of new skins to choose from. I already went to RaC, they have the best I've seen so far... I you read this and know a good addres, let me know! And another funny thing is the post about latex clothing on this blog. I noticed that it is indexed into searching engines and so when someone googles on 'wearing latex' they find a picture of 'Ellen wearing latex' among the results lol. So: welcome all latex lovers! (or should I say: Welcome all virtual latex lovers!)...

Updates and setbacks...

The Hugo and vanDornan shop ground floorI bought a new plot! woohoo! The studio has it's own space now and the shop has two floors. On the top floor you can find Truus' products and 'downstairs' you can find my items. Minor drawback was fact that the shop and studio are built at 700 meters height... apparently a SLurl on this website will not bring you there... It will tp you to the ground below the shop. I think I'll build a tp unit on the ground to the shop. The lm to my studio in my profile will not bring you to my studio, but below it.. don't know why, i'll look into it...

The Hugo and vanDornan shop level 1Then.. the shop at Willow has been closed. Through this blog I would like to thank Eve for all his work and effort he put into it! The shops in which you can now buy our items are the main shop at tintafel and the shop at Lionheart (at this shop you can find an lm for the main shop which works!)

Then some news about this website. I finally have the model page up and running. For now only Ellen is on there, but others will soon follow... These will be persons who have posed for me for clothing (the sale signs which you can also find on this site) or just for fun. In their portfolio you can find the (special) pictures I've taken and some extra information.

Flickr

04-11-2007

As I already said to a lot of people: Second life offers so many ways for someone like me to be creative... I like to design and build my own house / studio / shop. I like to design clothing and I recently picked up photographing in SL again. At first there were the pictures of a model (usually Ellen) wearing the clothing...

Ellen and Ava wearing new shirts!Then I came across the SL community in Flickr and was amazed by the sometimes intriguing and beautiful photo's posted there. Seeing what some artists can do in and with second life got me curious as to what I could do with it myself and a little help for photoshop :). Right now I am still experimenting, but really like the pictures taken so far.

Lilith wearing the set AvaTaking snapshots in second life and post processing them is fun, but the real fun starts when you post your images on Flickr in order to share your creations with others. I can spend hours clicking through fascinating collections and great artwork. It is cool to see people like your work too. To the right you see a picture of Lilith Lunardi, taken by herself, while wearing the Ava set she bought from me! Designing these sets is fun, people buying you creations is cool... A picture taken by a satisfied costumer is very, very cool!
