Swirling Clouds In Violet Haze

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey

Look out on a summer’s day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.

Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,

Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.

I love love LOVE Nuuna Nitely’s new Black Skins.

Black Mamba

“When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge it seems proof like no other; that not only does God exist, you’re doing His will.”

“That woman deserves her revenge and we deserve to die.”

“In Africa, the saying goes ‘In the bush, an elephant can kill you, a leopard can kill you, and a black mamba can kill you. But only with the mamba is death sure.’ Hence its handle, ‘Death Incarnate.’” Pretty cool, huh?”

“This is what you get for fucking around with Yakuzas!”

Mo Miasma of Morantique has just released a new line of jewelry. Known for her opulent furniture, she has taken this opulence to her new line called “Morantique Lush“. Ornate, and luxurious, this jewelry line is not for the feint of heart, but for someone daring to make a statement. I chose my 3 favorite earrings to feature, and will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Thoughts on business in SL

Although this is primarily a fashion blog, from time to time I will write things that have been bouncing around in my head, and this post being one of them.

I’ve been thinking of all the sales in SL that happen (which I also participate in). While a small part behind these sales is to offer something of quality at a discounted rate to shoppers, by and large the reason that there are sales is to make money. *gasps* Sound cold-hearted don’t I?

Regardless if you are selling items to pay tier, cover upload costs, shopping habit, or even to support your life in the real world; you are a business. Even if you create -just- for the joy of creating, your items that have a price tag on it, unless you are giving things away for free. My question is this: Why is that so bad? Why are SL content creators crucified for trying to run a business for whatever purpose?

Think about this for a moment. You get flyers in the mail for sales happening at your local shops, you proceed to buy that item because for whatever reason you want/need it, and you’ve saved yourself some money in the process. Why do people attack shops in SL that participate in sales for trying to be successful? There’s no difference between a RL company trying to bring sales in through different promotions than an SL one doing the same thing. Yet somehow SL content creators are held to a different standard and this is something I don’t get.

Clothing creators try to foresee trends happening in order to provide something that the public would like. Skin designers see a trend for teeth and cleavage, and try to accommodate that. This is what any business will do in either world in order to stay relevant and successful.

I’m not trying to state that we don’t enjoy creating and not care about our customers, or that we are all just soulless money grubbing bastards. However, just like any other business, money does play a huge part in what we do. So my question remains: Why is that so bad?
