Flickr-ing

For the foreseeable future, please follow me on Flickr for all my texture updates and new releases! With the recent news about Flickr accounts, I’ve decided to upgrade to Pro and post the majority of my product-related content there moving forward. I’ve also taken the recommended steps to ensure my account follows Flickr’s guidelines for digital/virtual world images.

Note: Flickr is running a 30% off promotion for all free accounts that upgrade to their annual plan by November 30, 2018 (this is what I used).

That said, I will still keep and use this blog for longer posts … or those without an accompanying picture.

Quest Fur Cover Hunt

For the month of October, I’m participating in the Quest Fur Cover hunt at my main store! The hunt prize is a new body coat titled Tangled Branches, and this time there may or may not be decoys 🙂 I made this one at the same time as the Tangled Flames coat for the Twisted hunt, but with more pastels and less of an inferno. See the complete list of merchant prizes and hints here, and start by visiting store #0!

My hint is: “Oh keeper of magic and rainbows, where are you?”

Ribbon Pattern Gacha

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’m taking part in the Out Shop Cancer event for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life, and have created a Ribbon Pattern Gacha for it!

This gacha consists of 8 patterns/tattoos that all have a subtle awareness ribbon design on the haunches. It was a conscious decision to include colors other than pink, so the patterns will look good on a variety of body coat colors and can be worn year-round!

One thing to note about the gacha vendor: to receive a prize, a donation of $50L (or more) must be made. 100% of all proceeds from this event will go directly to the American Cancer Society. To visit other participating stores, you will need the Out Shop Cancer HUD which is available at the American Cancer Society sim.

Now available at my main store — happy shopping!

New Body Coat: Mossy Forest

Released a new coat yesterday titled Mossy Forest! I was originally going for a wooden rocking horse look, but that morphed into a nature/forest/woodland theme instead. I know it’s not your typical horse coat, but figured someone might like it for roleplaying or Halloween 🙂

I also need to remember to take pictures in brighter lighting than normal. Everything looks great at full size in-world and in Photoshop, but when uploaded to Flickr and the marketplace it seems to lose detail and become a bit muddy.
