Ely's Pic

Elysium Eilde took some gorgeous photos of the Isolde wings. This is my favorite.

But this one is a close second:

InZane skins

I am horribly jealous of the gorgeous photos that Elysium takes. Really, if you need some killer product shots for your store walls, she will do your product justice.

Tim Burton meets Tentacle Porn

Hello my darling space monkey love puppies,

I have FINALLY finished this outfit, it only took 3 months. My inspiration was a cross between Tim Burton movies and tentacle porn.

The skirt is made out of sculpted tentacles. I included my usual 3 fit options, but since this is a prim work, you may need to edit for individual fit AND tweak your AO. I am still trying to perfect building with prims, so well, perfection may not quite be achieved here.

I also want to thank everyone who has blogged about the Black Fire outfit. I try to add comments of thanks whenever someone blogs one of my outfits - but this week in RL, my sister got married and as part of the wedding party, I was quite involved. And now I have a nasty cold too. Blech! So thank you and my apologies that I didn't leave comments.

Adaire DeCuir wrote a lovely article featuring some of the fashions from the show - and featured the Black Fire dress and took a lovely picture of it.

Thanks Adaire :)

Black Fire by Haunted Zuzu

Hello my Dearlings,

My pixie spider minions would like to tell you that this dress is premiering today at noon (SL time) in the Passions of the Black Swan Fashion show. (for direct link - SL URL).

Today through Sept. 30th, the dress will only be available on the Black Swan sim. Half of the proceeds on this dress go to the Black Swan sim upkeep, etc. My darlings, I truly believe in supporting the arts as I was tortured by my fellow dodgeball players in PE as a child. The dark dreary child in the corner is soooo much fun, apparently. And thus, I support the arts because where else do misfit kids turn to but drawing severed unicorn heads?

The spiders worked hard on this dress, so please do go out and support them as well. Or I will give them 10 lashing each and they will cry black diamond tears.

Don't make the spiders cry,
HauntedZuzu Sorbet

PS - We are looking at creating another blog for the Haunted Zuzu line but we'll continue to spam you on this one until THAT one gets added to the Fashion Planet feed.

New Wings - On the Dark Side

Oh look, I made something finally! 2 new wings. I didn't think I'd be lazier than LAST summer (when I was pregnant), but I'm having a hard time finding motivation this month. Maybe it is just August. And Ziggy and I have had a ton of real life stuff going on.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who bought a pair of the Material Squirrel Relay for Life 2008 angel wings! I wanted to post when it was close to the last day, but the ending of RFL snuck up on me, as it always does.

I've been taking a break from SL for the past few weeks. I badly needed some distance. I feel recharged and ready to create again.

I'm in love with these pigtails. I saw the Curious Kitties ad on the Fashion Planet feed and I had to have them. And I love them. My only complaint would be that when I scroll out, the sculptie does the LOD thing and I have bald patches in my hair, but I fixed this by making a black hair base. The LOD thing is not the designer's fault, it is just a sculptie thing.

And I rarely share outfits on this blog, I just don't have the time now. But I'm stuck on my current wing project - we are having some scripting issues with how we want them to work and the obvious function to make it work that has been broken since 1.7 - you know, the release when they came out with FLEXI. Remember that? The Lindens have tried to fix it in nearly ever release since . . .

On Camping, the old and the new

Material Squirrel has been displaced by another wing vendor for the number one slot when you search (top right corner) for wings. I'm a bit sad, but that's how the cookie crumbles. I will NOT be adding a pay to add this location to your picks type dealio at this time. I'll never say never, since who knows what market forces may occur. But in general, I believe that if you make a quality product and market it within the normal guidelines, you should not have to resort to gaming the system.

I am old enough in SL years to remember when people first started using camping. A lot of people were up in arms about it. It made searching so difficult because sometimes I'd teleport to the top spot in the search and I'd find 5 items on the wall and 20 campers. I remember one store that I went to and it was similar - now they are a very established brand but I still won't shop there.

Perhaps this is sour grapes. Maybe. There are plenty of people who will argue that any marketing measure you can use, whether some might feel it is gaming the system, or not, is fair. Perhaps. I still feel tho that if you make a quality product and get the word out, you won't need to pay people to advertise for you.

Free Tank top for Haunted Zuzu Subscribe-o-matic group subscribers

My subscribe-o-matic Haunted Zuzu group members received this tank top as a freebie gift yesterday evening. You might still be able to catch it if SL isn't acting up. Go to the Haunted Zuzu location and touch the subscribe-o-matic object and go to the history tab.

However, when I tried it, it did not give me an object.

BUT I will be doing more of these tanks and they will be free gifts to the group first, then maybe for sale later.

New Haunted Zuzu Outfit

Finally, and I do mean FINALLY finished this dress. It only took like a year. I had the idea over a year ago, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work. In about November (2007), I finally figured out what I wanted to do. I guess sitting on a rocking chair endlessly breastfeeding gives one LOTS of time to ponder. I did work on it a bit then, but I couldn't figure out how to make the seams work. Matching the wispy seams on the side was just impossible. And yes, I tried because I am crazy like that. Finally figured out another option.

And you will notice that the seller is HauntedZuzu Sorbet. Yes, Hello Alt! The inventory in my Kala account is just getting soooo crowded. It is really refreshing to have 1,000 something in inventory again. Well, in my alt. Anyway, it's not a secret hiding alt, just another way to work.

I feel rather dorky releasing just ONE outfit when I haven't done clothes for a while, but in the limited time I have, I get done what I get done, or I'll be releasing a bunch of stuff . . . next year . . . or if I ever find a babysitter for a few hours a day.

The dress details:
- Flexi prim skirt - 3 fit options
- glitch pants
- top (on both undershirt and top layers)
- gloves
- butterfly train

5 - You do NOT have to change the wing names back to their original names.


Version 4.2.1 is NO TRANSFER so please be sure you give me the wings from the avatar you want to receive them!

***Upgrade bonus - I have lowered the price on the MTV wings. To make up for that, upgrades on the MTV wings will get a bonus wing of their choice (if they follow the direction correctly!). If you don't specify a wing you'd like, I will just give you one of my choosing.

I will upgrade any previous version of my wings.

Future upgrades will be automated! Thank you for your patience!
Thank you,
Kala Bijoux

Monster Truck Wings are Back!

The Monster Truck Wings (our HUGE size of wings) are now back in the store with the new upgraded 4.2.1 features. I also managed to get a few new styles out for these wings.

Please note that these wings are as large as prims can go (without mega prims) so the size change works in the smaller direction. These wings differ from the normal 4.2.1 wings as they go a bit larger and the textures are made to specifically work with larger prims. Due to the size, however, the fit is NOT perfect so please use the demo stand before buying. If you are looking for a pefect fit, these are probably not the wings for you.

Upgrades - Give me a few days and I will have the info for people who wish to upgrade their old Monster Truck Wings! I plan to do something a little special for the upgrades due to the price change of the MTV wings.

2008 Relay for Life Angel Wings

Finally finished - my contribution to the 2008 SL Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.

Aside from helping out a great cause, this is a Relay for Life exclusive - meaning once the final bash is over with in July, these will not be available. So . . . you can get some limited edition wings that will be pretty unique. In past years, I've had people ask for the angel wings well after the fundraiser was over, so . . . get them now, I guess.

Turn on glow on these wings for a different look.

Only 299L - all proceeds from these wings benefit RFL

Relay for Life Angel Wings - Sneak Peek

Here's a sneak peek at the angel wings I created to benefit Relay for Life 2008. This is my 3rd year making a pair of angel wings! The photo doesn't show the detail in the wings - but you can get this effect by turning on glow.

They aren't quite available yet, Ziggy needs to do a bit of scripting since these are a different size and with the normal scripts, droop looks spastic, but soon, soon. I even completed the adbox shots.

New Skirt Single to benefit Wheelies

My friend Sasy Scarborough put in a request to all her friends to help raise money for the Wheelies group in SecondLife.

I really wanted to help out and also create something new. But these days I am so short on time and I still haven't done the the Relay for Life angel wings yet (they are in progress tho!). But I did remember this skirt single that I had almost finished, so yesterday, I put the finishing touches on it.

And here it is:

I changed the skirt singles a bit - I removed some of the old styles since one had massive texture transparency flicker issues and the other I didn't like. So you still get a nice mid-length (pictured, full color in ad), but also now you get a shorter length(greyscale full image), and an extra-long ball room gown length (not pictured).

The skirt pack is only 100L and all the proceeds from this skirt sale go directly to Wheelies.

And I should add, once the fundraiser is done, I will not be selling this skirt - it's a limited time dealie-o. I prefer charity raising products to be like that - so you know you are getting something special! And if you feel like 100L is too little, I placed a donation kiosk right below the ad, so drop a little more in the pool.

New Product - ColorFX color changing scripts

A new product add-on available for Material Squirrel 4.2.1

This product was created by Kim Ninetails and we loved it so much that we decided to work with Kim to bring it all of our customers. (And yes, we are profit sharing with Kim since she did the main work.)

ColorFX is a script that you add to your wings to get the color effects. The effects include emotional color options - like heartbeat, dead, and other cool things. My favorite is the color flows - which cycle the wings through colors.

This works best with certain wings - such as the Avalon wings or the Storm wings. I have a list up at the WingFling with what wings work best.

Available - or check out the demo at:

At the WingFling Fair

soon to be in our store, need to get that setup!

New Wings - Daray Wings

More new wings! These have a nice transparency effect and also look great tinted.
