The Liaison Collaborative — Couples lovin and snugglin

So this month I did the Liaison Collaborative. They wanted lovey things, wintery lovin things but still. I didn’t exactly go wintery. I’m kind of getting all wintered out to be honest. I love winter but you know how it is. Right now I’m in the middle of a snow storm where it’s dumping like 9 inches on me today alone so yea…

Heartstones Lovers Dance CircleAnyhow!!!!

The Liaison Collaborative opens officially this afternoon at 3pm SLT so I can put this out there now.

For this month I kind of did a revamp.  I’ve made things similar to this a few times in the past but I haven’t had anything in store inventory for quite awhile.  Heartsy dancing spot. This one is a little nicer. Has roses, stone circles, rose petals.

I mean, sure it’s not fancy fancy but you put this down somewhere you have an instant romantic spot waiting for you. I’m actually considering adding the proposal animations I have in it. Because it would really fit into it awesomely but I wasn’t going to diddle with that right now. Time and all, needed to get done. You know how it is. Hmm, you know it could be used for outdoor weddings too. If I added the ceremony animations. Anyhow… I digress and ramble.

So take a look!

9 Couples dances. Most of them are slow swaying sorts of things where you’re nestled in with your lover or friend for awhile. A couple of them are faster. A bit more fun.

19 couples kisses, cuddles, and just talking sorts of animations. To let you in on a little secret I put the talking ones in there partly because it just seems so abrupt to insta-sit on something and be in each others arms. Where’s the build up?! Where’s the romance? And ffs what if it’s one you don’t like right? Or a little more intimate that you wanted with THIS particular person. Talk about awkward. Jump on something.. “oh yea right, I wanted to sit with you but you know, that might be a bit more than what I was looking for” while the animation set has you dipped and his lips locked to yours. Uhhuh, so yea that’s why I do that. So you can comfortably shuffle through the animations, find something and then sit nice.

See I ramble.

Sorry.

So along with the options to be all snuggle like I made two versions available. One is the red roses version. The other has the roses and petals left at their default white so you can edit and recolor them to whatever you might have in mind. Just make sure to edit linked parts, click on the ones you want to recolor and then use the color part in the texture window to play. Voila!

Hope you enjoy, it’s priced at 399L

And only at the Liaison Collaborative, after February it will be in the main store.

TP TO THE EVENT!!

Winters Bite – Two new things!

Besides We Luv RP opening up at the beginning of the month there was also the Liaison Collaborative and then the Mystic Realms Winter Solstice fair thing.winters-bite-tree-set

I have a couple items that are geared more towards the cold of winter for the events.  The first for the Mystic Realms fair is a set of wintery icy trees.  I fiddled round and came up with these as a fun addition to your landscape.  Technically you get 12 trees in the set.  There’s 4 different trees, and three varieties of each tree. One plain branched one that reaches up into the sky… and then two others with lights. A randomized colored set that blinks, and then a plain white glowing light that sort of sparkles.  I’ve heard people say that trees are hard to do and you know I’ve never had that problem. Sometimes the prims or look just sort of fall together. The LI is a bit high for some of the sparkly ones though I got it down from where it was originally… it was let’s just say…. rather high.

See the picture for details on this one.

To get these they are only at the Winter Solstice event in the Mystic Realms… So click right here on this long line of text to get a TAXI!

The other item set was for the Liaison Collaborative.  It’s cute, but I wish there was more to it.  I was so exhausted finishing this that I really honestly don’t even remember doing the set up at the event. I think I was sleep building.

winter-retreat-shed-setI got it together and I really think it should get an update for the benches lol but we’ll get there right?  A shed to put outdoors with a bench.  The bench inside is copy, and has 11 animations for male and female avatars.

I added a fur rug for the shed, and a couple blankets piled on top of each other with a try or cocoa on it to round it out decoration wise.  It’s not a bad lil set really… I do like it.  Simple, and could be used year round since I didn’t rough up the thing too much or make it too snowy, it definitely has a wintery feel to it with the furs and such..  Though it would probably look pretty nice if it was.

So that is out for the Liaison Collaborative — click click to go!

Midsummer Night Dreams & Dreamweavers

Two other events have opened up this past week or within the past few days.  Indie Teepee and the Liaison Collaborative.  Both of them have dreamy sorta themes going on… catch that? The play on words? Yea, I went there.

It’s early… ish, on a Sunday, I can’t be held accountable.

Both of these item sets are something that I really enjoyed creating for very different reasons.

First highlighting Indie Teepee, the music and arts festival I decided to make up a harp. I used to have one in my store quite awhile ago that I really adored and have always thought I’d like to have another version someday.  With the theme I found a way to make that a reality. The Midshimmer Harp set really did turn out better than I had hoped.  It has a soft feel to it with a fantasy flair, at least that’s what I think.  It comes in three different wood tones, a light, medium then darker tone. I couldn’t decide which one I liked best so you can choose which suits your decor the most.

I added things…. made a scene sort of…. so each set is sold separately, apologies for that but you’ll see why when I get going.  There are three harps in each package so you are totally covered in however you might want to use it.  A playable version that has 10 songs, and 5 animations. The animations include playing the harp, and sits for male or female avatars.  The stool rezzes/de-rezzes as needed so it doesn’t necessarily take up extra space while not in use or any kind of clutter.  There is also a “jukebox” version of the harp.  This harp does NOT have any animations in it BUT it has the 10 songs that can be played with a click so you can have music in the background even if no one is playing it.  THEN I added an unscripted version of the harp just for decor purposes.

Midshimmer Harp Set - Medium Wood Midshimmer Harp Set - Light Wood Midshimmer Harp Set - Dark Wood

Since I’m something of a freak and like to think up things to do or go along with everything I also added a stool that is meant to be for spectators or people or just furniture you want to have out… the extra stool has 9 animations embedded in it for male & female avatars.  Amongst them a listening to music where you tap your foot and play along.

Deco included is also some flower scatter for the ground, two versions… one all white and one that has a few colors to compliment the harps, as a bonus I threw in there a flying butterflies thing with particle fireflies to help make a magical, woodsy and fantastical setting. See…. a big set.  I really do like them.

TAXI FOR INDIE TEEPEE

The second event and set for this post is at the Liaison Collaborative. The theme was Dreamweaver and from all accounts and the Pinterest board it was a Southwest sort of theme going in. Of course I could have gone at this in a few directions but I decided to sort of bring back a favorite of mine.  AGES and ages ago when I was a wee one in SL terms within the first year Shimasani Weavers Setor two of my store I had created a weaving loom with a decidedly Southwestern feel to it. Later I updated it a time or two when sculpts came around and now… with mesh, I’ve made my own from scratch… so to speak. It’s a long time favored thing, I have a love for this stuff… I used to watch my grandmother weave when I was young so most things related to that make me smile on some level.

I suppose it is only fitting at the name then. The Shimasani Weavers Loom set, Shimasani meaning Grandmother in Navajo is a vibrantly colored rather rustic looking loom. The loom itself has 6 animations in it. Kneeling weaving, and some sitting type of things. While making it I realized I wish I had made it a bit taller so I could add standing weaving to it but I suppose that will be something I could do later too.  After the loom we round out the set with various balls of yarn, 3 and 4 of them in one object and different colors… a folded blanket that has already obviously been woven by work worn hands, a rug to kneel upon and then a basket of yarn to accent.  The loom weighs in at 7 LI, a bit higher than I like but it’s worth it if you like this sort of thing and then each accessory piece is only 1 LI each.  See, I make up for it.

Rich colors, from cool to warm tones make this really something that catches your eye.  Available at the Liaison Collaborative this month.

So there it is… my second post of newness.  I hope you enjoy.

Swings, Trees and Floating Butterflies

Lit Balancoire - AdultThis past week or two there have been a few events starting.  We <3 RP is one, and I was in a round for the Cosmopolitan shopping event.  There’s also the Liaison Collaborative opening for their 3rd Birthday anniversary round.  So much to do, so much to see.

I am pretty much ALL over the place trying to figure out what to work on next so I haven’t even been getting to you the lil notes to let you know!

Ok… first things first… I guess I’ll start with the Liaison Collaborative item.  I like this. It reminds me of lazy outdoorsy days under the sun with a soft breeze.  If you sit back you can breathe in deeply feeling at peace.  Well that is the whole premise of this piece.  The Lit Balancoire – 10 LI and available in two versions, PG or Adult.  Both versions have 18 singles lays, sits and relaxing animations to read or while away the hours watching the clouds.  Each version also has a very robust set of menus of cuddles, kisses and ways to spend time with someone.  7 sets for casual conversation or relaxing, 10 massages, and then 37 various cuddles… kisses… and tender moments to share.

Now then onto the full version, if you like your options when spending time with someone this set has you covered with 13 different foreplay options and then 69 extra adult animation sets to play around with.  So on top of all of the cuddly PG moments you get all of that too so as you can see it is truly a ‘full’ version. There’s also a FREE GIFT for the 3rd Bday round for this one… a set of pictures, so there’s even more incentive to go.

Taxi to the Liaison Collaborative

I’m quite enamored with this swing to be honest with the candles and the idea of the romantic.  I find even the concept of laying quietly watching the trees, the clouds or gazing at the stars as a fiercely calming and soothing moment.

Fairly There Fantasy Trees Fairly There Seasonal Trees

And onwards to the next little bits of things I have to show you.  I have been in a mood to capitalize on the outdoors things.  I think I’ve been wanting to just sit beneath a set of trees breathing in the moments plus I have been creating my space in SL to sort of share and that always has a rather woodsy element.  In that vein I have a few sets of trees and some butterfly tracks.  For We<3 RP this month at a discount are two sets of trees.

The Fairly There Fantasy Set and then the Fairly There Seasonal set.  They are titled that because at the time of creating them I felt like I was… fairly there with finishing a display. *laughs* Never ask a creator where they come up with names by the way, sometimes we’re kind of warped or just come up with something……….. odd.Butterfly Tracks

I like these a lot.  Both sets really for different reasons.  The fantasy trees obviously have some wilder colors to them, I have become quite taken with the lilac one, it feels light… springy.  I like the other ones too of course but that one is probably my favorite in the set.  Then the seasonal trees have some more normal bark to them along with the coloring of the leaves from deep green to some colors that will look wonderful for autumn scenes.

Another item that I fell in love with ages ago are butterflies.  I like creating levels of color and movement within my displays, builds or areas so having little butterflies darting in and out among the grasses or in general around the trees can be somewhat soothing for me.  Light and playful elements.  So I decided to spend a little time trying to make my own.  I have these set up be rather awesome I think.  There’s something like 9 different butterfly textures for each track, various colors and a few different patterns for the wings letting you pick what you like.  And while I did all that I set it up so you can rezz 1, 2 or 3 tracks at a time.  The sets with 2 or 3 tracks have an anchor.  A set of stones with grass around it so you can easily move them.  Each track can have their textures changed so you can have all the same on one set or 2 or three different ones.  However you want to play it.

Oakenfield Tree SetTo add to the versatility I have it set up so you can change the butterflies either right in front of you at 20 meters, then up to 100, then if you really want to do it all at once sim wide.

Everything at the We <3 RP event is at a discount of 25% so they’re cheaper than normal… go get em if you want em.

The last thing that I can mention here is a set of trees that I released for the Cosmopolitan event.  For the two week round I had a set of oak trees that I fiddled with.  They weigh in a bit more than I’d like to be honest on the Land Impact but that does happen on occasion.  The trees have I think 7 different textures for the foliage and two different barks.  This gives a lot of options with the look.  They are on sale there until the 12th and then will be added to store inventory.

That’s really not all because I don’t think I even put out there what I did for twisted hunt did I? ugh… you know…… I need someone to keep me in line or to whip me into shape so I can keep up or something. *laughs*

I WILL update for Twisted Hunt soon… I have plans hopefully coming up that will add to it so maybe I’ll do it all at once.

Have fun and take care!

The Liaison Collaborative – Ashur Living Set

Ashur Furniture SetI try events and to do things when given half a chance to broaden my experiences.  Recently I was given a slot as a guest designer for the Liaison Collaborative.  Kind of one of those ooo things because I tend to look at the people who create for this sort of thing very highly.  So I kind of snuck in and have a wee bit of something for this round of the Garden and the theme was World Market.  So up my alley in some ways, don’t you think?

I’m rather excited to be honest. A long long time ago I made up a set of furniture using sculpts.  I had called it “Ashur”, at the time I had been rabidly watching Spartacus and that weasel of a character was on my mind while I made it.  I always really liked that set.  The idea of it, the style so when the theme for this event was knocking around in my head it reminded me of it since the chairs had been sort of fashioned after a Syrian styled chair and the accessories I had for it all that that sort of flavor.  I tend to have my own personal style and not entirely accurate historically or anything but I liked it soooooooooo I decided to start from scratch and mesh it.

It turned out nice I think.  I am not entirely sold on how I did it but I love love love the new curvier part of the chair and the little tassels that I added.  It’s so much better for that, it isn’t as flat looking in my opinion and a definite upgrade.  One that I am hoping people enjoy.

As part of the upgrade I added more animations to it.  The other set much to my surprise only had 4 animations in each chair.  There’s almost no point to that in my opinion.  That’s like a nice piece of deco, not a useable piece of furniture so… that’s changed too.  Now there is 17 animations embedded in each chair. 7 for male avatars, and 10 for female avatars, there’s two chairs.  One draped with silk and one that isn’t.  The set also comes with the screen, table, plant and a rug to throw around on the floor.  A full living set for only 550L normally… However!!! Because it is at the Liason Collaborative it is at a discount of 25% so right now you can get it for 413L
