Violet Dreams

Preview: this outfit soon to be available in a range of coordinating colors.

This outfit includes the knife-pleated skirt as well as a custom underskirt that may be lengthened and worn alone. The rainbow cami is color coordinated to each outfit, as are the prim slide heels. A removable short cardigan (maybe it should be called a shrug instead?) completes the look for a more demure presentation.

As always, a color coordinated brief is also included for modesty's sake and those times when Second Life has you a little twisted.

The first release of this item in a range of colors will be offered in a Mod/Trans version.

Our first line is out there

We expect to update the entire line soon. Every item will eventually be offered in Mod/Trans and Mod/Copy versions. We're hoping this decision will satisfy the widest range of customer priorities. Our vendors also allow you to buy items as gifts, to get around the problem of non-transferable items.

At present, all items available at our Huineng location are available mainly in Mod/Trans versions and maintenance is ongoing to confirm that the permissions for all individual items are consistent with those settings. Any items that are not what you expected will gladly be replaced in the meanwhile, with the corrected items.

What? Another designer?

After a surprisingly successful opening for atelier dropdeadcute, we decided that we had better begin to get a little more serious about making our presence known.

Well, we being me.

As so many others seem to do in Second Life, I tend to describe myself as a fairly intentional recluse. Oddly enough, though, there seems to be little trouble running into kindred spirits in a place like this, and I've found myself becoming far more social than in any time I can recall. So, with all that in mind, I hope to begin to make my efforts and those of my growing list of friends, a little less of a secret to the rest of Second Life.

I especially want to thank Kriss Lehmann (and tell you to visit Kriss's wondrous Straylight Island) and partner Shai Delacroix for their encouragement and their patronage. It meant a lot to me. A self-portrait from Straylight is also featured below. It's one of the more incredible places I've visited so far in Second Life; a true inspiration for what this place can be.

Anyway, ff people are going to find the atelier, there might as well be one more dreaded blog in the metaverse or whatever we're calling it these days. I'll try not to make it too boring, and stick to posting mainly about what's new in the shop, or about recent discoveries in the world of Second Life.
