Hello, dear readers. It’s been an amazing three years since I opened the doors for La Jolie Designs (“DiGi: Digital Fancy” at the time), but it’s time for a new chapter to begin in my store’s life. Effective Monday, February 8th, La Jolie Designs will only be available on the Second Life Marketplace.
Now don’t freak out!
Still with me? Good. YES I am still making new products! M17 “Aleske” and M26 “Banar” are coming along nicely and should be ready for release soon, and I’m looking back at my older WIP holograms and seeing how I can pep them up to my current standards. (I’m staring at you “Shattered”, “Melody”, and “Adherent”!) I’ve also started working on bodysuits and latex with the first of this new generation of clothing, S06 “Bina”, having been released last week:
Such sexy. Bonus points to you if you can figure out who my reference model was for that suit.
M24 “Sesartes” is also ready for release and simply needs a better photo before it’s ready for your consumption! Expect this beauty to pop on the Marketplace in the next week:
Yes, those holo crystals are included. No, that is not the only arrangement M24 comes in either.
I’ve already closed registrations for the DiGi group since the in-world discount is no longer applicable. When LJD returns in-world it won’t be using that old group anyways since the names don’t even match anymore.
So why close down?
Time. Real life has kept me from enjoying Second Life and my store as much as I would like. The past few months have been a real strain with trying to keep up with effectively two stores (In-world and Marketplace) along with juggling real life and my own recreation on Second Life. I’ll be taking a bit of a break and will come back full-force with new products, though I can’t say when for sure. There’s some really exciting stuff coming soon – keep an eye out! So don’t think of it as a closing down, but a hibernation.
Thanks for being such a wonderful member of the LJD family!
