No Im not really a groupie but I do have a new group!
Well ok... it's my only group but anyway, to the point! I made a group for my business. The group is called "Sweet Chili" if you want to do a search for it or you can just visit my store at the agora village to find my group inviter which pretty much just gives you the link to my group so that you can join. =) There wont really be much action in this group right now but when it grows bigger and when my business grows bigger I will be alot more active with sending out notices of gifts and new releases and midnight mania boards...

...that's right, I decided to purchase a midnight mania board. For those of you who don'tknow what this is, midnight mania is kind of a freebie game. The owner sets a target on the board. This number defines how many clicks from unique avatar that's needed for the game to finish. Then they load an item into the board and if the target amount of clicks is reached before midnight SLT then everybody who clicked the board gets that item for free. If the target is not reached however there's no prize, better luck next time!
The items put in the board is not normally freebies, if they are then you've come to the wrong place, in fact most midnight mania(MM) groups have rules against using freebie items in their boards.
Groups? Yes, there are many groups dedicated to finding and announcing MM boards, to find one of these groups just do a group search in SL for 'midnight mania' or something similar. I suggest you pick a group with a large amount of members.

Lots of text an no illustrations... well, here's a picture of me at work!
Proof that I am actually doing my job; standing outside Studio Nails looking pretty!

New release and more ^^

Let's start with my newest outfit today. It's a full 7 piece outfit. The idea is similar to the 'Hot catch!' pants that I put out earlier this week but this is a complete outfit. The pants have big rips all over that's held together by fishnet. With this you also get a bikini top and bottom and a fishnet shirt that can be worn with or without the bikini pieces depending on how frisky you're feeling. ;) The fishnet shirt comes with a pair of gloves in order to extend the legth of it to give it that punky look. As a finishing touch I've included a belt in 2 different colors. This belt is worn on the jacket layer, it is NOT a prim belt. Why? Because I am tired of seeing these really badly fitted Prim belts that just looks like hulahoops or that's piercing your body in various places(ouch!). Don't get me wrong, some prim belts are really hot but this is how I choose to do it.

I have decided to lower the price on all my items and some of the older creations are now down to a mere 15 linden! The most pricey item at this date(not counting the fatpacks) is my new outfit that I've just told you about which is selling for 59L =) not bad for a 7 piece outfit . =)

Now that's out of the way, what else is new? I know I cut my last post off because it was so long ^^
I don't know if you know this but I was renting at a place called the 'Temple of Asrai' but shortly after I moved in I got a notice that they had to close down for personal issues, they were very professional about it and they also gave me a refund on my rent =)(I hope they're ok!) So I thought "Ok, this was probably good for me anyway because I really shouldnt expand right now"(yea right! We know how that went...). That was last week... THIS week my very awesome friend and DJ sent me a message to let me know that he had just opened a club and that he put up a small amount of stalls outside for rent, these stalls were 50 prim and only 50L a week... you know.. what was I to do? :p So now I have a small place outside a club called Phantasm, It's a rock-themed place to the looks of it, It's a kind of spooky and dark place but I'm trying to convert them all with my large pink posters!
The grand opening party of this place is on may 1st, so be there!

Naughty Bella!

I havent blogged for a whole week, I should be grounded!

I really dont have a good reason why I didnt blog. I've been a bit bored and a bit frustrated because I have great visions of designs but my photoshop skills need to be improved but that will come with time I hope. =) Right now Im practicing and practicing more. I rarely do the same thing twice in a row and if I do then I usually use different techniques. I think that might be why It's going so slow at the moment but Im learning lots.

So whats new? Hmm..

Well a few days ago there was a few changes made at the agora village shops. My good friend moved from her spot to a much bigger one and when I heard this I started to work my beautiful puppyeyes on the landowner to get my hands on my friends old spot, and who can resist a beautiful girls pleading puppyeyes? So I have moved from my old boring 15-prim spot(yuch!) to a fabulous, sexy, awesome 60-prim spot(yay!). With this I have also made a few changes to the look of my shop. Many thanks to the landlord for his patience with me and my floor! *wink*. You really should come see it for yourself, it's so hot and sweet(Sweet Chili pun, anyone?), it makes me drool!

I do have a new creation and you can expect to see alot more coming up now that I have room to expand.

This time it's a pair of jeans. I was thinking of my older black ripped jeans and this idea came to me. So here they are, a pair of ripped jeans, but with fishnet instead of rips! These jeans are a little special, they're based on a pretty neutral color which means that they are very tintable. All the variations you see on the poster was made using the 'tint' option in the appearance controls and I left copy/mod perms on them just for you, so now you can make many pairs out of your 1 pair and make them all look different. It's like getting a fatpack in just one pair of jeans! ^^

There's a little freebie for you guys aswell. I made this shirt to hand out during the snail race that was going on last week and that is why there's a little snail crawling out of the cleavage of this tank top. The shirt is worn on the jacket layer, this is because I wanted it to be longer than the reglar shirt layer is.

The snail race is run to collect money to help fight cancer. If you want to contribute then all you have to do is pay the vendors for a starting number and join the race! It's great fun. I couldnt join at this time because we were having our grand opening of the mall on the same day but me and a couple of the other shop owners at the agora shops were standing by the starting line(which is right outside our building) cheering in our little bunny suits.

This post is getting quite long so I will save some for next time, I bet you're all bored by now! Take care guys and see you in SecondLife!

Is it time yet, is it summer? Not quite... but we're getting there. The light skirts and dresses are slowly making their way out of the deepest corners of the closet to shine in the warm sunlight once again. To celebrate this time of the year, the time where you finally realize that the winter and snow isnt coming back, I made a beautiful dress to bring out that spring feeling in you. It is available on XSL and in game at the mall.
But wait!
Here's some really good news if you're interested in massive shopping. This saturday(the 18th) the mall will have a Grand Opening party and there will be sales going on all around the mall. I will, ofcourse, be in on this too and ALL my creations will be sold extremely cheap. You're going to think that I'm crazy when you see my prices. Remember this is a ONE DAY ONLY sale, after that the prices will be back to normal. So this saturday it is, be there! =)

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, I hope you all have a good time with friends and family and may you find lots of easter eggs!

Ok, so my creativity has kind of been washed out since I went public with my design. Making all those posters stressed me out a bit :p
But now its easter and I just couldnt let easter go by without adding my design to it and since easter is supposed to be fun Im sharing it with the rest of the world for only 1L.
Get it on Xstreet SL: https://www.xstreetsl.com/modules.php?name=Marketplace&MerchantID=154509
or at the Agora Village mall: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Abitibi/196/233/56

Another note, as my friend told me.. I didnt mention the actual name of my shop. My designs go by the name "Sweet Chili design".

IzaBella, what have you done!

What exactly have I done? Let me tell you..
If you've been reading my blog you should know that I have been creating clothes for SL, getting better and better. I was hoping to some day buy myself a piece of land and set up a store there. As I was crafting more and more I came across the xstreetsl forums and saw that they have a business forum. There's so much good reading... in this forum I also started to look into rental prices to be prepared for when it was time, I wasnt planning on getting anything buuuuut...
I saw that the agora village was renting out a few different size slots at their mall, some for as low as 35L per week! Come on, what was I to do? Ofcourse I took it! So then I had a little 15 prim mall slot and I had nothing prepared to put there, not even a store sign! So I worked very hard for 2 days. I finished a halfdone outfit, made a sign for my store. I got myself a photostudio to take good pictures of my creations and made a couple of posters. This may not sound like alot of work but it really was! From now on Im making posters as I finish designs... So today I finally started to put things up in my little space, if you want to check it out here is a landmark to my store at agora village.

The mysteries of SL

How hard can it be? Trying to find a nice place to party in SL with good music and most important; NOT a strip club or sex oriented club! Sure some of them are nice with nice people but the only way to have a conversation and meet new people in those clubs is by being naked or talking about being naked. So I have been surfing around the net, the SL search, SL itself and although I am usally good at finding things, I havent found a decent club yet. There must be some secret sect out there to keep this all so quiet. A club with first class DJ's, bartenders, beautiful dancefloor filled with party-people and events to keep them all going.

Problem and solution

I love rockabilly fashion. So stylish, so clean.. and it never gets old!
So here is my idea of a rockabilly dress, very clean lines and ofcourse the polkadots! :p
With this dress I realized a problem tho.. my 100% solid, non-transparent texture used for my prim skirt was causing the transparency glitch! How ugly! So I started to ask around, I asked my teacher Afon Sheperd at NCI academy and we started to brainstorm. We didnt find the solution tho but after I had been given some ideas from her I went to Natalia Zelmanov's blog as I know she has some tutorials on making clothes with both .PNG and .TGA fileformat aswell as Photoshop. I read through a few and there it was, in the comments on her blog! Apparently newer versions of photoshop does not give you the option to turn off alpha channels when you save as a .PNG making SL think theres transparency, making it glitch... That's just my luck! :p
So from now on Im saving all my primskirt textures as .TGA. It doesnt make it more difficult, since theres no cutouts or transparency I dont have to mess with the alpha channel anyway.
