Sexy in Pink--YOURE INVITED!

I have lots to blog but here’s a teaser due to time constraints,  an adorable little purple party dress perfect for the coming holiday parties.  The skirt is a smart skirt so even sitting and chatting with friends you look great as the skirt immediately adjusts for sitting.  Glittery purple texture makes it fun, lets you shine!  The seam work is great and i love the bodice, but was surprised to see that once you take off the skirt you have a great body suit too.  Love when that works!  I have lots more and this is a sneak peek, so get over to Sexy in Pink and scoop me.

TP to Party here.

Alone & Adrift

First, I would like to apologize to those have forwarded along blog items.  I haven’t been able to get to them as I am going on week 4 of the flu (my immune systems is very poor at the moment), I have had some RL issues (Family is Fun…not-they like to hog the bandwidth with their WoW missions, while running YouTube, and file sharing programs-I have lost signal 4x trying to type this), and then there are the various SL glitches that make life so much fun (Meh).  I will get to them all, I promise.

I have set out in my store, 4 ice floats with a single sit on each, as a store gift.  They are scattered around the sim, so you will have to explore.

Don’t forget to stop by and check out Balderdash, Saiyge has placed her winter items out, and has lots of awesome things in her store.  We can’t wait until the other stores and items are in!   Thank you to all who came to our little ice skating party last night, it was fun to catch up with a few people who have been RL and SL busy, and meet some new people, and hang out with the crew.  It felt like magic when everyone was ice skating, sl is so much fun sometimes.

Sh*t Happens Partner Contest

Press Release:  Sh*t Happens Partner Contest Info

shit-happens-contest-ad-jpeg

Always wanted to design, but your store just isn’t taking off? Well here’s your chance to design under a well known label for a contracted time.

I, Ana Boogiewoogie, am looking for partners to expand my buisness so I am able to keep up with the popular demand for releases.

Whether you design skins, hairs, sculpties, shoes, accessories, poses, or clothing, i’m looking for it all! Don’t think you’re good enough yet? Don’t sweat it! I am not looking for just already done talent, if I see a potential in you, I will help you learn and teach you everything I know to help you get started!

The winners will receive a contract with Sh*t Happens for a period of time. You will get 100% of your profits from the store unless it is a group project, in which a split script will be placed. The winners will not have to pay rent for the first two months to build up an inventory to sell. Winners will also receive an email address to the website (shithappenssl.com) for them to use for customer service. (If this is used against the rules, it will be taken away as I pay for it irl and won’t want it to be used for wrong.) Also, they will have a spot on the main webpage it’s self once it’s up and running as well as the ability to blog. (Again I reserve the right to take this away at any time if used for wrong.)

ATTENTION: [[The contract and rent will all be discussed with the winners and we will come to an agreement. You will not be forced into a contract you don’t agree with, you will get to choose certain things, but it will be a legally binding contract so I am not ripped off and neither are you. It’s protection for everyone.]]

Now onto how to enter!

What do you need?:

–At least two outfits/skins/hairs/sculpties/ect. (At least two pieces of your work, basically. I would prefer more to see the consistancy in your work with the dates they are created.) I WILL ACCEPT DEMOS IF I CAN SEE THE WORK. You do not need to send me anything you don’t feel comfortable sending me. We can set up a time for you to show me your work on yourself if necessary. However, I still would like a notecard and pictures for consideration.

–Also, i’d like a notecard to tell me about yourself, why you want to work for Sh*t Happens, and about the pieces of work you are offering. I want to know who you are, and what drives you! This isn’t all about talent! I want my partner to be able to have fun. This is a learning experiance, for everyone involved. We can all teach each other things we don’t know!

–(OPTIONAL): If you have a current store, I would love to see it. Add a landmark to it in the notecard and the folder! (This also works if you don’t want to drop too many things on me.).

–(OPTIONAL): If you would like to include your RL email to contact you with further questions, or if you are the winner, please do so. It will be easier to contact you that way.

ATTENTION: [[I do NOT want them full permission. Please do not send me full permission unless they’re textures. If they are textures, please add in a NO MOD NOTECARD that I have permission to have the full permission texture. Otherwise the entry will be deleted to protect myself. ALSO, ONLY SEND ME YOUR WORK. I can not stress this enough. If you did not create, don’t send it to me. I will eventually find out! By sending me your entry, you agreeing to these terms and KNOWINGLY sending me YOUR OWN work. Anyone sending me other’s work will be immediately disqualified and possibly reported for content thieft.]]

What’s next?:

— You have all your pieces and your notecard, right? Well now all you need to do is drop them into a folder with the right permissions. The folder should be named Sh*t Happens Partner Contest – (YOUR NAME HERE).

–PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, put your FULL SL NAME on the notecard, on the folder, and even on the clothing. If your name is not on your entry, it will not be considered!!!

When’s the ending date?:

— December 27th, 12 PM SLT will be when entries are closed. The winner will be decided on January 2nd, 2009.

What are you looking for in the winners?:

— Talent or potential talent. Even if you are not the best, but you’re willing to learn, I am willing to teach what I know.

—  Drive. I need someone who is really into this, and will not leave halfway through. I am looking for a longterm partnership to potentially expand my buisness drastically. Please take this contest seriously, if not, don’t bother entering.

— Personality. Not just in person, but in your designs. I want to see unique! And I loveee fun people. I would love to have parties, contests, and get along with all my partners. Like a happy family. I know drama arrises, but I want to be able to work through anything that happens. I am willing, but only if you are willing as well..

Will I know if I win or lose?:

— Due to the number of expected entries, I am not able to contact each and every person. I suggest joining the Sh*t Happens subscribe-o-matic or update group to keep updated on the winners. I will announce the winners only. Everyone else’s names will be kept completely confidential. I will not spread anyone’s stuff around or share with anyone outside of myself and other judges who will be helping me decide.

If you have ANY QUESTIONS, please do not hesitate to drop a notecard onto Ana Boogiewoogie. Please put your FULL SL NAME in the notecard along with your questions. Do not send me an IM. My IMs get capped. You may also send me an email at Ana@shithappenssl.com.

Winx-Ice Float Deluxe

Winx Home & Garden has moved..again..Yeah I know.  BUT! I swear I am here to stay.  My new location is at Oubliette and is under construction, but all my items are out and set to sale.

Oubliette is a beautiful sim being created by Saiyge Lotus, and in completion will be home to not only Winx Home & Garden, but Saiyge’s Balderdash – Bagatelle & Trinketry, Evie’s Closet, so far.  The sim will change with the seasons of the northern hemisphere, and is currently in winter mode.  While not any where complete, its still a fun walk on a cold day.  So stay tuned I will post upcoming developments as they happen on the sim.

I have a flotilla of releases coming….the first being the Winx-Ice Float Deluxe.  This wintry iceberg cuddle is perfect to drift away on cold nights wrapped up in the warmth of friendship and romance with 4 single, and 5 couples poses fireside.  Once at Oubliette, open your mini map and head north to find the Ice Float, or explore the sim in its current state.

I have more fun wintery items coming soon..so I wouldn’t recommend parking a large ship anywhere near Oubliette at the moment…maybe for the spring thaw.

Archange-New Releases

Archange recently released several new items, and they’ve blogged that they have more to come!  Read here! They are currently offering a gift dress, Caroline in Copper for $1, it’s located on the stairs, please wear your group tag to purchase.  Please note that there has been some problem with the vendor not recognizing group titles, so if this happens, send along a notecard to Danner or Katterina.  They were looking into it as of this morning, and hopefully its been remedied.

I only picked up a few things when I went over, I want to carefully choose my colors, etc as I now not only wear my usually Copper/Ginger/Auburn hair, but also Black, Platinum, and a warm brown.  I need to be savvy enough to pick something that suits all three.  But wasn’t leaving without the Christine in White.

The Christine is all we have loved from their origins as Dazzle, to Last Call, and here it is now at Archange, that detail we love in our bodices, the thought that’s been put into the design.  This bodice has a lot of detail, the textures are perfect, and you can almost feel the fabric.  Front and back has been adorned so that the dress is perfect for the Second Life environment.  In addition the color choices for this dress were particularly pleasing for the coming winter months.  I think I am going to have to throw a ball now, so I can wear this out in public.

I also picked up Lily in brick, which is a shirt and pant outfit. Prim pant legs were similar to what we would expect, multiple layer options made it very well thought out, and its exactly what we would expect interms of quality of design.  As usual all their designs come in a variety of colors, and this season they’ve deepened the color palette.

“First L@@k” at SLim

Well if you regularly keep up with LL news via the Second Life blog you have heard of SLim…the new standalone application that lets you IM/Recieve IM’s from people inworld without going inworld.

Sounds great huh!

Yeah,  I thought it sounded slick too, or should i say  SLick.

That blog post if you clicked it carnival barkers it like this…

“…SLim enables Second Life Residents to conduct voice or text conversations with member of their Second Life friends list….whether they are logged into the virtual world or offline. While the Second Life viewer will still serve as the primary inworld communication engine, SLim is capable of running on most computers, and offers users a voice-enabled instant messaging client that extends the value of the Second Life Grid beyond the virtual world…”

It also directs you to this page, where it lists the instructions and downloads for SLim.

Basically you…

1. Download and install the First Look SL Client , this is a client just like any other one you are logging onto. You also HAVE to do this, you HAVE to cause SLim pulls/syncs your friends list via this.

2. Download and Install SLim, a breezy no nonsense, no bells, no whistles little application thats similar to Yahoo Messenger, AIM, etc.

3. Register an account with SLim, this takes two seconds, and USE A DIFFERENT PASSWORD THEN YOUR SECOND LIFE LOG ON PASSWORD, but use you Second Life avatar name.  Easy Peasy.

So I do all this, and no friends list appears.  So I log out of SLim and go back into First Look SLim Viewer aka the First Look client..work with me here.  So I log out and go back into SLim, and VOILA, YAY all is right with my virtual life I haz friends list.  So Milli plurks that she’s IM’d me but Second Life says I am offline when I have my settings set to Online.  I double check and all is set up right, and so I IM her via SLim, and I get this shiz…

“Imcompatible Peer Application” -Milli Santos is using a version of the Second Life Viewer that does not support IM or Voice session with this application.

Yep.

So to use SLim to its advantage all of the people you IM or IM you must be using the First Look SLim Viewer.

Now silly me, yeah I did see under the download button for the First Look SLim Viewer (not to be confused with the actual SLim application) this:

You need to download the Second Life SLim Viewer that is specially designed to work with SLim. Other Second Life viewers will not work with SLim.

Please note: You must log in to this viewer at least once before logging in to SLim. Logging in to this viewer ensures that your SL Friends list syncs properly with SLim, and that SL Voice is engaged. You do not need to speak to use SL Voice; you just need to log in to this viewer so voice is automatically engaged. This enables Vivox (our voice partner) to authenticate you as a SL Resident for SLim use.

Now to me, that simply comes off saying I need to use it the first time to load my friends list, not that everyone needs to be using it for me to be able to IM them.

Seriously!  Specifically this line:

Other Second Life viewers will not work with SLim.

Now where does that give you the nitty gritty that it’s useless unless you and all of SL are on it. To me this wording is deceptive.  I feel like I got a bottle of snake oil.

So now you know, if you were curious as to whether or not you wanted to try this out.
