Yay - New release!

It has been a long while since I released anything, due to things described in my previous message, but also due to my (sometimes annoying) perfectionism. I have made loads of trial and errors while trying to perfect my sculpting, but I have done it!

I truely think this new hairdo will make up for the waiting.

It is fully sculpted and very detailed and I have worked on it for a really long time (compared to the time it takes me to make a hairdo within Second Life).
It's Julie and it's a funky, messy, girly hairdo with two cute low little pigtails and some nice flexi details.

I hope you like it!

See you next time!

Oh mah gawd!

I'm finally online again!
It has been ages..!

Alright, to make a long story short:
First of all my beloved computer suddenly crashed majorly *boohoo* and I had to let it get repaired. Unfortunately I had to wait a while before I got it back, but I got it back, so that's a good thing... You think!
No, ofcourse something else had to crash as well, so again I had to leave my dear computer behind and wait again for it to get fixed.
And again I got it back, yay!
And again.. You think!
Within a couple of days it just stopped working at all!
We've tried to reanimate it, even used peddles, but still all we got was a flat line; no more heartbeats for my desktop..
Farewell beloved one, we had a great couple of years together *sob*

Anyway, I finally have a brand new spanking desktop and ofcourse I just had to let everyone know that I'm still alive *winks*

So here I am again!

Back to designing hair again *hurray*
(Now all I need to do is get everything up and running again, which will be really soon hopefully!)

New releases!

I've been working my butt off these last days, but it was worth the energy, because I have just finished and released 2 new hairstyles!

First up is Yuri: 

Yuri is a funky, messy, yet cute hairstyle, perfect for every occasion!

And the 2nd one is Sarah II:

Wondered what Sarah would look like without the bun? Well, here it is: A sideways tail with sleeky, flexi curls!

I hope you enjoy these styles as much as I do!
Now it's time to get some rest and think of new hairstyles *grins*

New packs released + Fatpack hunt

Finally I have released the new Rainbow Colour Packs!
It took me all afternoon, so right now it's time to just sit back and relax.

I've also priced some mystery fatpacks for only L$50! That's 80 different colours for only L$50!!
Since these are mystery packs, you have to find out for yourself which hairstyles these are. The only clue I'm going to give is that there are 2 women's fatpacks and 1 men's fatpack priced this low.
Enjoy searching for them!
This hunt will only last until midnight SL time, so be quick!

Short post today, but I'm kinda beat off so I'm going to relax now.

Legolas in the house!

This weekend I've been working on a men's hairstyle. I wanted it to be sculpted, but also really flexi. Since I'm a big fan of the Lord of the Rings movies and in particular of some of the men actors, I came up with Legolas' hair!
It took me a while to sculpt it to be perfect, but the result is satisfying.
Here it is:

Since no man in Second Life has the exact same headshape, it was difficult to make a smooth hairline. And even if I was able to make a perfect smooth hairline, it would look totally different (and probably messed up) on someone elses head. Therefor, if you have a headshape which makes the hairline look messy, or if you think it's just too bald up front, I made some additional bangs (included!) you can wear along with the hair!

I hope you will enjoy it!

I've also been working on creating the new rainbow colourpacks. I'm almost done with it, so somewhere this week you'll be able to get your favourite hairstyle(s) in even more colours!

See you next time!

Mens hair section!

Sooner than I thought; I made a mens hair section in my store today!
I've released 5 original WonderHair/Lamora (made by Kristel Wunderlich) styles, ofcourse in my own colours and I've adjusted some a bit. I'm working on some other styles myself as well and I hope I can release these really soon as well!
It would be really cool if the mens section would be as great as the womens, but that will take time (a whole lot of time, unfortunately).
Anyway, here are the mens styles which are available instore from now on:

*Carl: A long straight flexi ponytail with some loose strands on the front. 

*Michael: A short hairstyle with an attached hat. The hat is scripted to change texture by touch. Just click it and choose from 13 different colours on the menu!

*Philip: A short haircut with sideways bangs and lots of little flexi prims. Doesn't my model look sexy with this hair?!

*Ralph: A short low flexi ponytail with parted (flexi!) bangs on front which cover your face a bit. It makes my model look kind of mysterious don't you think?!

*Randy: A very flexi loose hairstyle with bangs that cover half of your face. The hair comes down over the shoulder and moves along with every move you make! Men with long hair are sexy, huh? =P

Alright, this is it.... for now!
I hope I can show you even more releases really soon! Wish me luck on sculpting a fully sculpted mens hairstyle! =P

New hair and packs

Last week I spent most of my time within Maya to learn the 'basics' of sculpting full hair. I already had some basic knowledge of sculpting within Maya and even used some selfmade sculpties in a couple of my hairstyles, but I wanted to make fully sculpted hair, so I grabbed myself a can of tea, a pot of sugar, a mug and locked myself in my study.

At first I had no idea what I was doing, but after some time I figured it out and, to my surprise, I even made a fully sculpted hairstyle!
I named this hairstyle Sarah and it's a classy, elegant hairstyle with a sideways bun on the right.
Doesn't it look really pretty for a first-timer?

I also found some time to create some new colourpacks! Since I didn't have any funky/fantasy colours yet I thought it was time to make some.
Here they are:

Rainbow Pack I and II both consist out of 5 funky/fantasy colours + 5 colours with black tips. Both for the same price as regular packs, nice deal huh?

I haven't had enough time yet to colour all current hairstyles into these new colours, but hopefully I can release these packs for all hairstyles somewhere this week!

I'll also release some men's hair this week (which I didn't have yet, shame on me!) so keep an eye on this blog.

Tata for now!


*Knock knock* Hi!

Since I have recently made some major changes to my store; such as hairtextures, interior design, etc, I thought I needed a blog as well to write about updates, new releases, special events, etc.
And here it is, my very own blog!
I will try to keep it up with every important thing that's happening, so sometimes I'll write a few times a week and sometimes only once a week or even less.
Just watch and see and I hope you like this way to stay up to date =)
