Designers and Artists PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Read this post
Ok this may look like a fashion post, and it kind of is, but it is also wayyyyy more informative. This is Fiachra my very best friend, he is also the owner of Essentia, the creator of my Hair Roses and Jewelry I wear often.
One thing about him is he loves to send me links to things, and one of his favourite places to shop online is Woot, now if you don’t know about Woot it’s one of those sites that does a special of the day, generally electronics and such great prices they are a steal. Well there are also other Woot sites, and one of those he often shows me what he has bought, but we discussed it recently, my mind of course straight away thinking it would be cool if they were in world.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO It’s better than that, omg so much better. You see Woot has a shirt site, and these shirts are made by their own designers etc, BUT BUT BUT they have a weekly Derby where people can submit art work which gets voted on, and the winners art work will get turned into a shirt that is sold on the site.
Ok sounds great right, I mean you’re all so incredibly talented, and I know even more of you are gifted in so many ways other than just clothes making using the Phils Place templates, I have seen creators art work that never actually makes it onto clothes because of the way the mesh would distort the image etc. This would be a chance to show off your talent.
The way it works is that you submit the entry into the Derby, and then it is voted on, now unlike most votey stuff you have to be a customer of Woot, any of their sites though, and the thing is that a Tshirt from their Shirt site is only 10usd free shipping and 15usd internationally for their shirts of the day, if its an older shirt you like add 5usd. Now why are Fiachra and I so excited about this for YOU the designers of Phils Place, wellllllll if your shirt design gets picked you get $1000 USD , yes I will say it again $1000 USD.
Not only do you get that amount but after the first day, if people buy your shirt anytime after that you will get 2USD from every sale, ok this is tooo brill to not take a look at, the website is Shirt Woot Click HERE,
and more general info can be found HERE. I am really excited about this, I mean the concept of it is brilliant, you are all so incredibly talented, and the ability for us in RL to be able to one day maybe purchase something of yours RL for such a wonderful price will be AWESOME.
Now about what Fiachra is wearing and a big thank you to him for letting me know about this fabulous oppurtunity for many of you.
Fiachra recently went Neko, not that that was a huge leap for him as in the two years I have known him, he has been a Skin (thats what I call me who is without fur ) then a Kirin, then a baby dragon, then a huge dragon, then a skin again , then a Dragonne – which was a custom made avatar mixing a Dragon and a Lion- then a skin again and now a Neko lol.
So on his hunt for a Neko skin he finally found one he was pleased with at Nomine – he is wayyy fussy. The skin is the Neko – male cheetah and its cute I have to admit, especially around the face as that is pretty much all I see anyway. A while back on one of our teleporting adventures I came across some boots that I already owned and realised they had mens versions that were pretty spiff and made him check them out, he really liked them and bought black and brown ones, the store is Zero Number [0N] and the boots are called Engineer Boots Zipper Brown, which he likes so much that he has even bought brown clothing to wear with them – which if you look in his profile is kind of funny.
Last week we went to Dutch Touch and he got the Leather Jacket Brown, which he really likes and does go so well with the boots, but he needed something extra, and not really having allot of brown in his inventory yet I had to take care of that with the Digit Darkes Leather Chaps in Brown/Black, these pants have always been popular with the guys and now that they are on both layers they go great with boots such as these.
Fiachra is all about layers, and the fact that so much is made on partial or all, he likes to push those boundaries, hoping that designers instead of just doing longer shirts on the jacket layer only and then having tucked on the other two , possibly start making the bottoms of the untucked on pants layers so that you can use the underpants layers of pants and stil have that untucked look of a shirt with a jacket on as well – lol that all sounded so technical, but you can see in his pic what he has done.
Also from Dutch Touch is the LongSleeves Top Tucked DarkGrey which is actually being worn under a tank top from Aitui which actually has that pants layer shirt extension look, so as Fia says he has Sandwiched Aitui between his Dutch Touch, lucky Aitui. The tank from Aitui is the Plain Tank Top /Charcoal and his whole look is pretty funky.
His ears the Kitti Ears (Burnt) have been modded from some that I have as well, from The Sweetest Sin, as I have shown in the past the ears come pierced etc, but Fia didnt want all that so removed the extra prims, but really liked the movement and shape of them.
Fia is also wearing a tail he made for himself, and the Byzantine Choker Chain from his own store Essentia, which I also love and wear often.
Teleport to all stores from HERE .
Always thankful for:
Essentia for my Beautiful Hair Roses and Jewelry many pieces of which I have watched being made, and had the pleasure of wearing first as they are custom fit to my shape-I’m blessed.
Nuclear Boutique for my lovely Lashes that I wear when I think of it and because Ari is awesome.
My Posestand is by VR Fetish/Fashion and also available on OnRez HERE!, not only does it have hide/show, but also has 3 options for changing poses, lights built in you command on/off in chat, and it rezzes a prim sphere around you that allows you to turn your camera 360 degrees and take pics without moving your stand, the sphere also changes colour on chat command too, its brilliant!.
My eyes which I get complimented on all the time are from Minnu Model Skins the MMS Green which I love.
