Super Bargain Saturday 25, yo! June 26, 2010

Have you joined the Super-Bargain Saturday event group yet? Well you can do so at the subscriber in any store participating in the event and save big every Saturday. This means BIG DEALS for you every single week from awesome designers. Every Saturday, from 12am-12pm SLT, you get whatever the designer puts out for only 60L. And these are very generous designers, so you won’t want to miss what they have for you. You don’t have to join to reap the rewards, but you will get a list every week with the stores and slurls ahead of time.

Seaside Splash Friends Pose

As of two weeks ago, Super-Bargain Saturday hit Olive Juice, and it’s back again! Since it’s officially summer time in the States, that means beach parties and fun with friends in any world. So I thought this friends pose would be perfect for capturing those fun moments on film. AND, since it’s a SBS release, that means it is only 60L all day today! After midnight tonight, it will go to full price, so grab it on the cheap while you can.

And don’t forget to check out the other great deals at the other Super-Bargain Saturday stores, like my neighbor in Morning Glory, Awesome Blossom. She has the cutest front porch set that includes a rocking chair with 4 custom animations (made by yours truly), side table with tablecloth and accessories. The chair and table are all texture change too, so the options are endless. All that for only 60L today too!

Happy Shopping 🙂

“Every Saturday a group of designers will place an item marked down to 60L in front of their mainstore. The item will be available from 12am SLT on Saturday until 11:59pm SLT on Saturday. All the designers are going to put up a totally new product or something from their store list. Each week we are going to give you the opportunity to discover new and great designers with gorgeous products.”

This week’s designers are:

Olive Juice does SLDD *dances like an idiot* May 21, 2010

Olive Juice- Barrel of Poses
If you haven’t joined SLDD yet, you most definitely should. It’s this fantastic shoppers club that has different price options, and you get to snag exclusive deals and sometimes exclusive items EVERY SINGLE DAY! Today happens to to Olive Juice‘s turn for the 50% off item, YAY! This “Barrel of Poses” is just what it sounds like. It comes packed with 8 static poses, fully adjustable to fit your av, easy touch menu built-in and 7 prims with sculpted flowers or only 2 without. Both options are included to blend in with your summer or spring decor. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did making it.

Just make sure your SLDD card is attatched, and choose ‘pay’ from the menu. If you aren’t a member, sign up right in the Olive Juice store at the Shopper Register Sign in the front-left hand side when you walk in. That’s it! Fun times at half the price, weeeee!

Visit Olive Juice’s Mainstore to grab it!

 

Spring is here, let’s frolic in the flowers! April 4, 2010

A virtual world is defined by the creativity, fantasy and talent of its residents. Our builders create the fundaments of such a world, the landscapes, houses, its flora and even its fauna. The designers make us look beautiful and enable our virtual selves to be whatever we want to be. But there is one group which tends to be a bit overlooked – the posemakers and animators. Imagine how your SL would look without them.

What would your SL be like without poses?

Beautiful avatars would stand in that beautiful world like scarecrows, watching the butterflies dancing over the meadows. We might be able to waddle right behind them with our noobish duck walk. Instead of ballroom dancing there would be only ballroom bumping-into-each-other in a desparate attempt to connect with each other. Couples could only sit next to each other and lovingly stare at each other from the corners of their eyes. It would be a beautiful world indeed, but at the same time a deadly boring one!

Hai butterfly!

This year, for the first time, posemakers have put together a Pose Fair (find more information here) to raise money for the charity Motivation , which does work in low-income countries to enhance the quality of life of people with mobility disabilities. I spent a few hours and lots of Lindens there and I am absolutely amazed by the huge variety of poses and creators (many of who I didn’t know before). The adorable butterfly pictured above for example is a donation gift by LAP and includes four different animations when worn.

Crazy Chick

Poses can turn us upside down, like this handstand by “aDORKable Poses”, which is part of a whole handstand set!

Bubble Dreamer

They enable us to visualise our favourite pastimes, our thoughts and our dreams.

Childhood memories

We need posemakers and animators as much as we need fashion designers and builders, so let’s celebrate them and give them our appreciation, and please don’t forget to credit them in your blog posts. Happy Easter everyone!

Byebye (pda) poses March 6, 2010

I was very sad when I heard that (pda) was going to stop selling poses. Izzy Bereznyak, Esme Milena and Samara Cioc have created some of the most elegant, sophisticated and sometimes just plain cool poses that I have seen on the grid. They are closing on Sunday night and until then you can get all poses for L$10 in a big closing sale (or two fatpacks with over 100 of Izzy’s and Samara’s poses respectively for L$1000 each). Here is a selection of my favourites that will hopefully convince you to teleport over there and splash out before they are all gone.

(pda) poses

A: I can’t find pleasure
B: Everything you touch becomes a crutch
C: Gallery pieces
D: Respectable
E: Nijinsky5

I am going to miss (pda) poses terribly!

(pda) Fireplace

However, I am very excited about the new furniture pieces that Izzy has recently released, like this beautiful recycled fireplace with book stacks inside and several poses. I can’t wait to see what else he will create and wish him good luck for his new business!

Teleport to (pda) here.

Uuuuh…. sure, we’ll say this is a Day 16 Post: A Very Dickens Christmas December 16, 2009

So, I second what Pau said. We seem to all be very busy and/or sick right now. It’s all I could do to release some Victorian inspired poses, from Olive Juice, right before Christmas. Now these can be used for a few things, but “A Stroll With Jane” and “Dapper Darcy” are very Austen-meets-Dickens, and can be great for a vintage Christmas photo shoot in the snow. Also, “Olive Juice Follies and Refined Vauldeville” are fun poses inspired by the all American era of variety acts, dancers, musicians and traveling shows all in the name of entertainment. All poses are available individually, as well as in pose packs. Have a Merry Vintage Christmas!

Olive Juice Follies and Refined Vaudeville

A Stroll With Jane- New Victorian Poses!

Dapper Darcy

Grab them for 25L a pop, or 5 poses for 115L in a pack at Olive Juice.
