I’ve been a busy little elf since I last blogged. For starters, I’ve designed a new skirt. I was playing around with Ged Larson’s LoopRez Script, trying to layer different sets of panels over each other; and I ended up with this cute mini tutu…
I used the same idea for the garters and the stockings that I incorporated into the Punk Princess collection (my first efforts at skirt designing…some have said they look like lamp shades but to those people I simply stick my tongue out and waggle my flexi ears…) I made a purple and a red version, both available on SLExchange and SLBoutique, as well as…wait for it…my THREE inworld stores.
Yes! You heard correctly…I had so much fun putting the store in Potter Village together that when I spied some more ideal sites, I couldn’t help but slap down the rent and settle myself in. The first store is in Mordor, which is an amazingly detailed recreation of Sauron’s Mount Doom from The Lord of the Rings, complete with the ALL SEEING EVIL EYE!…scary. Here’s a picture of Mordor…this sim quite literally blew me away.
Do ya wanna see what my store here looks like? Go on, ya know you do…
Pretty groovy, huh? I wasn’t sure if it was an elf’s place to be setting up shop on Mount Doom (seeing as Sauron and his legions of orcs and goblins are kinda our mortal enemies), but no one has seemed to mind. Here’s the slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Mordor/177/177/26
The owner of Mordor, Beezer Golding, has got a web site dedicated to the sim and the events held at the Slayer’s Club, which is a pretty decent rock club right on the top of Mount Doom (I think I saw Gollum scurrying around up there but I’m not sure…). You can view the site here: Mordor.
My third store is in a place called Faery Haven on the Mordred sim. This is a fantasy medieval sim so you’ll see plenty of folk wandering around wearing huge wings and ball dresses. This is the slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Mordred/188/74/22
Urban Elf in Faery Haven
So…I began thinking to myself, I have all these stores…wouldn’t it be cool to have my own Urban Elf group? Well knock me down with an oversized feather if I didn’t only go and create one! If you join you can find out about new products, special offers and members only competitions. Plus you get that awesome ‘Urban Elf’ tag! You can join by searching for ‘Urban Elf’ under groups and hitting the join button, or you can IM me inworld and I’ll send you an invite.
One more link before I wander off to play some slingo on Mount Doom (who knew Sauron was into gambling?)…Timothy Lilliehook took some gorgeous pictures of my store in Potter Village and put them on his Flickr page. This guy is a really talented SL photographer…so go and have a look!
