So, as promised, here is a post about my new lil shape shop!
I’ve always really enjoyed making shapes in SL – in any world, really. Character customization is way fun, and I like creating new faces and bodies for themes and outfits, or for friends based on their likes and personalities. I have been asked several times in SL if I would sell my shape to random people in stores and such, and I was always like… o.o uh, NO bitch, getchya own! (I didn’t really say THAT because I’m nice, but I did decline. I realize now that is a silly attitude and I should profit from this hobby that I enjoy.
To me, each shape is a character. It has personality, and differences that are both easily seen and more subtle. Maybe no one else can see them… and maybe no one will buy them. Who knows! =P I never have sold ANYTHING in SL before so this is new territory for me.
And I named my shop bitchkitten. Why? Because I like those words, and how they fit together. Because I am, among other things, a bitch and a kitten. And because no one else was using it already. =P
The part of this shop that I am most excited and passionate about is ironically, the part I am selling for 0 Lindens to avatars 30 days old or less. Included in this package is a notecard introduction to a few of the more confusing and negative sounding sliders in the shape interface: fat, eyebags, jowls, thickness, etc. How many times have we seen avatars with stick thin legs and week old rez date because every one who’s anyone knows it’s bad to have any fat? =P I’ve seen a lot anyway. I want to help new players learn that the fat slider being above zero doesn’t make you like that obese dude in South America who can’t get out of bed. I also included a second notecard in the package with information about the free or cheap skin/hair worn in the poster and a few freebie websites that I enjoy reading and think might be useful for newbies. AND some links to stores with free stuff in them. I would love to know about a free site for men, if there is one, btw!
These are a few of the shapes I have up for sale currently. I am planning on creating more male shapes and then some shapes for child avs, before working on a few more female shapes! YAY. All the female shapes come with a SYSTEM SKIRT SHAPE (laws, yes) that has been created while wearing a system pencil skirt to achieve maximum sexy-bootiness for that shape type. Demos are offered as well. All the shapes cost 400L – which to me seems competitively priced, as a lot of shops sell shapes for 1,000L or in that ballpark. A friend told me 400L was too much and that they had seen shapes sold for 150L, but I sure haven’t seen any shapes sold for that little, lol. But I am interested in opinions on that – if you feel 400L is too much, please leave a comment expressing why so I can consider it.
TTFN!! <3 :D
Edit: it would help if I added a SLURL! =P http://slurl.com/secondlife/Juicy/180/102/25
