Mature content

As I was updating my SLexchange and Onrez pages with the newest adition to the Ava product line I noticed that the original Ava (red) and Ava 2.0 (blue) were marked as mature content. (This was done on the SLechange website). This came as a surprise, because I was not notified bij SLexchange. I can imagine that some folks find the content of these two items a bit too 'naked' (while they do cover all naked bits :)) so.... so be it. You can still find the items behind the 'unsencored' filter. Only thing that kind of bugs me is the mature content filter on the onrez website which which seems to be turned off after a few clicks (and which has to be re-ebabled again). This becomes tiresome very quickly... Sales dropped to a zero after the items were placed behind the filter. Now I know why... A week ago I bought a pair of Cleric 2.0 guns at SLexchange. I checked other guns for sale too, off course these items do not have to be placed behind a filter... Other news is that I finished a new item. Well it is not really new, it is the Ava 2.0 set in the color black. Gloves and stockings are included in the set as well and the set is called Ava 2.1 (surprisingly) One more other thing.. A few links of items to Onrez seemed to be broken and have been fixed. If you happen to find a broken link on this website, let me know!

LM of our shop changed

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

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

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.
