Winter in Nouveau

Wintertime in Nouveau! We've been snowed in, so wear your winter gear before visiting, and don't forget those ice skates.

Looks like the rivers are freezing over. Just keep away from the water edge.

The Skoopf skates come with some awesome trick jumps.


Yep, Miriel's been snowed in too! Looks like the glass roof is holding, that's a sturdy construction.


Some poor swan has been caught in the ice at Tete a Pied. He must have some pretty cold feet by now.


Sunset already? Good thing there's a warm fire here.

Small things...

From http://blog.secondlife.com/2006/12/07/gridwide-rolling-update-starting-shortly/ :

"WHAT’S NEW? Those of you who requested this before will be pleased that there’s — finally! — a followable pattern to the order of restarts. Regions will be restarted from left-to-right, north-to-south!"

A small thing .. but what an annoyance to be chased accross half a dozen sims when one has bad judgmenent (or bad luck) in choosing a sim to flee to! Thanks LL! Now if you could only fix the classifieds *nudge*nudge* ;)

Today I migrated my blog to "Blogger beta" - which shouldn't affect you, dear readers, but it rids me of the annoying nag screen. And apparently, it comes with desirable new & shiny features.

Other than that, it's just planning for the big event - lots of little details to be taken care of, but it's fun to be doing something different for a while. So, don't expect much in terms of new products 'til 07 ;)

(No longer) need models for event on Nouveau sim

Edit: Thank you to all who sent in applications, I've found three wonderful models!

I'll be needing 2-3 models for an event on sunday, December 17th, 1-3pm SLT. I'm looking for female models only, who should be comfortable with (tasteful) nudity in front of an audience - nothing smutty, it's for skins & jewelry showcasing, but you'll be pretty much nekkid. More specifically, I need models who like wearing Tete a Pied skins and who have a realistic build - short & chubby, tall & feminine is ok, silicon tits on a stick ain't. You should be amenable to slight changes to your avatar - like being asked to remove glasses / piercings, asked to wear a specific hair style (which I would, of course, provide) or to set your feet size 0. Nothing dramatic, but I'm going for a very specific look and if you're willing to cooperate, that would really help me.

What's in it for the models? You get to keep everything you wear (a skin, a jewelry set, possibly some shoes / boots) and 500L$ cash. Also you'll get a the opportunity to be part of a one-of-a-kind event that's going to be very very awesome. Poses and all accessories will be supplied, you just need to be there and look pretty, from 12:45 to 3pm SLT. (Since the poses will be static and no interaction required, some afk-ness is ok - but who would want to miss the party ;)

If you're interested, please send me a notecard titled "Nouveau event - Your name" and include a facial snapshot (frontal) with your usual hair color and wearing a TaP skin if you own one, a full-body snapshot (3/4, bikini or naked), list your favorite Tete a Pied skin tone(s) and whether you usually wear silver, black or gold jewelry. Please no fancy lighting, PS effects etc, I just need a plain snapshot to gauge whether your look would compliment the set. Please include times at which it would be convenient to contact you, and whether you'd have time for a short rehearsal on friday Dec 15th, around 3pm SLT. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!


Since the most common problem people have with my boots is adjusting the position so they fit on longer (or shorter) legs, I finally did a little instruction graphics. You can get it at my shop (with a complimentary posing stand) or stare at it on my blog. ;) For reference, my AV's legs are length 54 - so if your AV has similar proportion, the boots should fit out of the box. For everyone else - please take a minute or two to adjust the positioning!
