The Sorcerers Photographic Competition is in full swing... here's a little pic I did to give you some ideas about themes outside of the "sorcerer" realm. This is a competition only limited by your imagination, so have fun with it, and the pose prop :)

For some more ideas check out The Hole in the Universe blog, over the last week Tearsong Vaughn has been featuring the staff using some very interesting themes and looks :)

The Sorcerers Staff and Competition details are available in world at Studio Sidhe

N.B. This competition is for both men and woman, and has two categories: Photography only and Post Processing ... so everyone can join in the fun and have a go at the L$10,000 prize for each category.

Sorcerer's Staff... add some magic to your day :D

This is a very special release, and of course has a story... but first for those who don't like stories and just want to cut to the chase:

This pose prop is wearable, menu driven multi pose and comes with both a left and right handed version of the staff :D 4 poses + plus one staff hold pose, so a total of 5 poses in all in each staff. The staffs are mod/copy so you can fit them to your avi and mod the staff to suit your pic.

Available in world at Studio Sidhe or Xstreet.

Okay! that done... time for my story!!! You comfy? ... okay, I'll wait while you grab a pose ball... ready? righto!

Well, I went down to Siddean's store, SLink, when the Revolution Coats came out...who didn't? they are HOTNESS! and got the Chocolate one for some promo pics I did with the Kaleidoscope set I recently released as well as the collaboration between Sid and I... (the elf ears with the Kaleidoscope earrings), so that was all good, I was all ooh, How chic am I? but then randomly, as only seems to happen to me, I accidentally had hair named after me, done by Hair Solutions, and the lovely Kia from said business sent me the hair... so there I was running around my crazy, yet fun little corner of SL; feeling like a Million dollars in my SLink coat & my very own hair and thought OMG! I'm like some windswept sorcerer in this outfit!!!! and of course, HAD to make a staff and poses to go with... which of course meant I had to go back to SLink and get the coat in black (*nods*, yes, it really was necessary... one must have pretty stuff). So there you have it... my rather long winded ramble about how this latest pose prop came to be.

I would also like to give a BIG thank you to Achariya Maktoum (both Lady Acha and Boy Acha) for taking the pics for the ads, she is a lovely woman and way talented. THANK YOU ACHA!!! :D

That's all from me for now,

A mixed bag of Goodies :D

Hi everyone!

Who's been super slack at updating their blog? .... MEEEE!!!! heehee

But I did just want to let you know that the Slice of Summer watermelon hunt is winding down, so if you haven't already, hurry in to get your couples pose from our main store (pictured above).

In other news, I've also made a version of the bell and chain anklets with a bell sound on walk. This version comes with both the with and without sound version of the anklet.

You can find these at Studio Sidhe, SLink (the prim feet featured in the pic are the brilliant work of Siddean Munro) or on Xstreet.

Also! I've made a hugely fun pose set... The wine glass comes with either the rainbow texture or a tintable version :)

Available at Studio Sidhe or on Xstreet.

Okay! done... now back to making more fun stuff =D

Take care, and as always...
