Accessories

Drunken Fun for 25L Tues

Drunken Beggin Fool Belt PouchWay way back I used to have an accessory that you wore and were able to play out the drunkard. Think I had a couple, a bottle… tankard. That sort of thing, single play animation of sitting on your arse singing like a buffoon while waving your arm/hand back and forth.

A hit in some ways. Now this was probably, uhmmmm….. 5 years ago or something maybe? Might even have been longer for all I know, and yet someone this past week sends me a notecard upset that this very old and very limited use item was missing from their inventory, could I please please help they need it for a role play.

Ok… there’s a flashback, and wow. I never did actually like how they turned out that well so I probably tossed them a very long time ago but it did do one thing… got me to thinking how I could make something like that now, but better.

So! This is what I concocted.

11 animations in the thing, click it to access the menu.  Standing, a drunk stumbling stand along with a couple sitting on your butt singing.  Then on top of it I added some beggar type animations.  I figured they kinda go together right?

Beggars… drunks…. begging so you can get drunker? *snickers* Ah well… but you see my point.  A great new RP accessory that you can use, it gives props.  Bottles, tankard, drinking horn and a goblet so you can mix it up however you like with whatever kinda thing you might be rp’ing.

I have it sized for both male and female avatars within the package but it is modify too so you can adjust it if you like.

It will be 25L TODAY ONLY!!!

Not leavin it at that price but I’m being a real nice sweet kinda creator person in letting you have it for next to nothing.

Hope you’re having a great Tuesday.

Free… free…. free….. free

I’ve been giving in world group members more gifts or deals lately because it feels like things have gotten so out of whack that the folks who stay in there don’t get much of a benefit.  So many things going on, time flying by.  Well today I’m offering up a lil freebie for only a little bit, not forever.

I even have a story to go along with it.Av attach - Hello Wall

Yesterday while working on some items for up and coming events I was approached by a would be customer.  My little IM tab starts lighting up, they were at an event type thing and could not find my booth/display/whatever.  They had been told I was there, could I help them please.  Sure… no problem.  Which event might that be I inquire wanting to help them.  So I wait for the reply, look at it when I get it.  Pause.

Hmmmm…..

I’m not in that particular event.  Ok, no big deal… express this to said individual.

So… they then pull up a blogger post that has an item of mine on the outfit/in the scene that was indeed for an event at one point or will be…. if you can’t tell I’m leaving this ambiguous on purpose…. a recent post though and according to it, there should be an item of mine at this event for this discounted price or whatever other limitation this particular event has within its rules.

Ahhhh… I see what happened.  The blogger probably under a big pile of boxes couldn’t/can’t/didn’t keep events straight and mislabeled my item.  Honest enough mistake, say this to said individual, tell them where it will be or won’t be available depending on your point of view.

Individual gets defensive.  Wants the item.  Wants it for the price specified, wants me to do what should be done, and that I should be more aware of things like this, that it is misleading… that I should be checking blogs regularly… etc etc.  As I slowly blink trying to take it all in.

I offered the piece, I offered to make them happy, I even end up giving it to them for free when it was said and done all the while listening to them rant at me as I thanked them for the feedback, telling them I appreciated them pointing it out to me…. all of that.  They have decided to not shop my stuff again.  Or so they say.

Wow.

It isn’t the first time of course that a blogger has made an error where an item of mine is for sale.  For which event or even in my store.  Misspellings happen a lot too.  Not usually that big of a deal, I catch some… might give a nudge… often leave it alone.  But this is the first time I’ve been laid to waste because of it.  I do try to keep an eye on blogs but do you have any idea how many are out there?  The best part?  The blogger purchased the item themselves from an event – it wasn’t just dropped on them or in a group notice for blogging.  It was fun, and all the while all I could think about was how I felt like I was banging my head against the wall.  Then the subsequent thought – even the bloggers can’t keep up with events anymore.

So!  This weeks fun little freebie.

Ta-da!

The “Hello Wall” Av attachment.

The most super duperist item to come out of the Wood all year.  A simple wall that you can attach from your inventory!  Wear it and you will be amazed at how much better you will feel!

Five awesome animations to choose from…. banging your head into the wall, and just because we all have our moods or needs… 2 male and 2 female animations where you can literally talk to the wall.

Yay!

For those moments where you are standing around or being barraged and nothing else can quite get across your feelings this well.  Adjust the wall, male or female… is simple really.

So that is my adventure for the week.

It is near the landing of the MAIN STORE in the NEW ARRIVALS area.

And to any bloggers out there reading this?

Please PLEASE for all the love that is holy….. double check your posts before clicking publish.

Thanks.

Fantasy Gacha Preview #2

I had been prepared to pull the corset from the gacha carnival until last night when I started getting the IM’s.  Fantasy Gacha Carnival Hideaway SetsQuestions as to why, some asking for it specifically… looking forward to trying their hand at it so, I decided after a bit of arm twisting that I would put it back in.  I’ve struggled with coming up with something else to put in to it anyhow so I might as well.  The 1st the fun starts and along with the Briarthorn Corset set I have two other gacha items in there.  See the previous post about them.

The first is supposed to be a major piece.  Two hideaway sets.  Variations in look and feel there is rustic, rugged, silks and satin.  Commons include accessories and things like a shanty…. candles, rugs, pillows, lil decorative objects and then the rare is one of two different beds.  The beds have 50 something couples animation sets.  Lots of loving cuddly stuff that just will melt your heart.  It’s really nice.  I should place out examples at the store but I almost doubt anyone would find them to check them out lol  It’s something of a problem I suppose.  I dunno, I like the idea…. I will probably put display pieces out so you can see them.FGC Elementalist Staff Set

The last little bit?  Well….. That’s a set of staves.  Elemental in design there are 4 commons, earth – air – fire – water, and then there are two rares.  The voidwalker, and then the spiritwalker.  I think they look kinda cool, lil floaty crystals in the middle of the larger crystal.

Each one comes with an unscripted version, then a scripted version with AO so you can stand and walk around.  One blogger made me laugh, her write up said something along the lines of… being able to stand around all badass or be able to walk around without stabbing yourself with it.  Awesome.

So there you have it…. my offers for the fantasy gacha carnival.

25L Tuesday

Two brand new items not in store inventory for 25L Tuesday this week.  Next week I’m on the list too and we’re supposed to do a gift I think so it’s all good.  You know it’s funny, for quite awhile I been thinking yea I should get on the list once in awhile at least.  It’s an interesting thing to do and people like to get a little deal once in awhile.  I don’t ALL the time but yanno, to keep it interesting.

Anyhow… I kept wondering why I’d miss the sign up times.  They alternate time zones so people have a fair chance.  Open up the reservations say noon one week and then the next it’s at 10pm or something.  My time that is, in SL it’s like 7pm or something.  And I digress yet again, but I was wondering why I kept missing them and guess what?

Well… I had group notices off. heh.

Nice huh?

So for this week I have a couple items up.

 

The first, the meat wagon was actually a customer request.  They had some of the other pull carts and was wondering if I had something along those lines.  I didn’t and while trying to figure out something for this week I figured why not.  So there you have it, at a discount through today.  Tomorrow it’ll be placed at normal pricing.

Second item is a set of bondage posts.  Short posts with a handful of animations in it, particle chains and gives manacles.  It matches the other wooden post that I tossed out there a few months ago.  I like it when things match or go together.

So there you have it, 25L for this week.  Come take advantage before midnight tonight SL time.

To wear…. See!

I have done chores and different things for years to help people within their role play or to create scenes.  It’s something that I have always loved to do.  Chores/work sets were some of the very first things I ever did.  I loved the idea of creating an atmosphere.  I don’t know if I want to say I wanted to make it feel ‘real’ but something along those lines.  Little things that you could do, or play into to create bigger scenes than just standing around… wandering… or well pixel bumping.  Not like we don’t all like a good pixel bump or scene but sometimes there are other things.  Perhaps it is my caregiver type nature in some respects finding the interesting possibilities that can be had within something as simple as work or day to day living.

Perhaps it is because I grew up around farms, animals, braiding rugs, big looms, churning our own butter amongst other things that created a love within me for the simpler life.  I don’t know, perhaps I remember the smell of the wood fire burning while doing all of this creating a homey type feel.  Perhaps a lot of things.

One thing that was always difficult though was creating these pieces for people who didn’t have the ability to really have a home.  Land is expensive in SL.  Period.  It is.  Not everyone can have some land to set their things out on, and then there are limitations.  One, being around other people…. creating atmospheres but then not having folks to interact with.  And sometimes even if you do place out or have things placed out on a sim it isn’t necessarily what you want to do or have right?  Plus prim counts and all that stuff.  I have done attachable pieces before, you know… brooms and things.  A few other items…. but one thing that always bugged me was how it was only 1 animation.  So there you are… like with my harvest bag I used to have.  It attaches and over and over you just do the same animation….. can’t stop, pause or whatever.  Someone comes up you have to take the bag off etc, which really doesn’t create role play…. or anything else.

Awhile back I figured it out.  One of my first pieces with this in mind was the feather duster.  It has quite a few animations in it. Seven I think.  Ways to stand, kneel or work.  So you could click it and stop working to interact with passersby.  Awesomeness really.  I loved it.  A bit too specific, don’t think people really saw it for what it was and I don’t think most people care if they have a feather duster. *laughs*

It is something I have long wanted to offer, wearable things with multiple options, and now I can.  With this in mind I had created the seating for the gacha event.  A group member had mentioned this too, sometimes at events or something running out of places to ‘sit’, wanting to be able to no matter what.  So now that gacha has been going for a bit and it seems to be well received I decided to move forward and offer up the first of what I hope to have as a decent line of options for people.

A set of three rocking type chairs.  Granted I can’t make them rock while attached but you can get the feel for them rather well.  Each chair has 12…. you see that??  12 animations to choose from.  Sewing, crochet, knitting, reading, drinking tea… cocoa… and wine.  Then different lounges, or sits so you can relax or work or mend clothes whatever.  The cushion holds the props which are included.  You get two different chairs, one with sewing basket attached… one without.  I figured not everyone wants it around with them all the time right?  More opportunity to use it wherever you want that way.

Anyhow…. so that’s pretty awesome don’t you think?

You click on the chair while wearing it and a menu comes up.  You can choose from the 12 animations that are in it.  You don’t need to rezz… you don’t need to do anything except wear it.  If you sink into the ground I have a lil tip in the instructions to help you out so you can fix that… or you can adjust it as I left it modifiable.

Of the three they each have a different style to them.  The rough one is more rustic, darker… has a furry throw over the back and patched leather for the seat.  The second is a rich brown wood, with quilting for the seat and the throw along the back.  The last has white shabby wood, blue quilting on the seat and then a crocheted throw over the back.  I thought that each one could suit so many different styles, places or moods.  It’s perfect.

So you can decide… which one do you think is your flavor?

I have more of this sort of thing to come I think…. do you like them?  Give me some feedback, do you see improvements to be had or ideas that I might not consider?  I’m all ears.  I would love to hear from you about it.

Thanks very much and have a great week.
