"There also stands the gloomy house of Night; ghastly clouds shroud it in darkness. Before it Atlas stands erect and on his head and unwearying arms firmly supports the broad sky, where Night and Day cross a bronze threshold and then come close and greet each other." (Hesiod, Theogony, 744 ff.)Nyx was the primordial Greek goddess of the Night. Little was directly know about her but her origins lie at or near the very dawn of time. She was the mother of many of the most ancient gods, including personified deities like Sleep and Death. She is a mysterious figure of immense power that even Zeus himself feared to anger.
That seems an appropriate goddess for this sleek shimmering loose latex boot. Its a simple and elegant design complemented by a chromed spike stiletto heel. Nyx comes in nine colors and are built to complement the Dark Eden Mania and Stripped jacket designs with a touch of dark elegance... or is that decadence? You decide.
Nyx Boots are 200L per color or 900L for the mega set of all nine colors.

The latest from Dark Eden are our new Bottled Imp, Bottled Fairy and Shoulder Imps sets. These sets all focus on miniature sculpted fairies and imps which ride on your shoulders, your head, or even around your neck in a bottle! Both the Bottled Imp and Bottled Fairy are magically sealed into glass bottles reinforced with black iron and sealed with ofuda-like magickal papers. The bottles are hung from your neck by thick rope. I threw in display sets of the bottled fairy and imp for those that would rather keep their critters on their shelf instead of around their neck. I liked the little ofuda magic strips so much that I made an earring set out of them to accompany the bottle.
As a complement to the bottles, I have made a set of cute little demonic imps that will ride around on your shoulder with you. Four imps are included in this set, two for each shoulder. The red skinned little imps come in two varieties: bound demons complete with miniature shackles and chains, and 'happy' imps who are happy because they are free from bondage!
All three sets are combined with my previous Shoulder and Head Fairies into the Good n Evil Set. This big set costs 300L and includes 4 Necklaces, 2 Display pieces, 2 earrings, 4 shoulder imps, 4 shoulder fairies and 1 set of fairies on your head.
The Bottled Imp Set costs 150L and includes two necklaces, one display, and two earrings.
The Bottled Fairy Set costs 150L and includes two necklaces, one display, and two earrings.
The Shoulder Imps set costs 100L and includes four imps.
The Shoulder Fairies set costs 100L and includes four fairies.
Finally the Head Fairies costs 100L and includes one set of three fairies cavorting on your head.

Laynie Link and I love to have fun taking pictures. I saw the calendar contest and thought it would be fun to do a photoshoot with the fairy silks that I bought from Dark Eden. I have a deep love of fairies so these silks caught my eye when they were released. So Laynie and I played around with her making all these cute fireflies. She shot this picture for me because she was in windlight and I wasn't.

Dark Eden is taking a step into the high tech with our latest creation: The Edentech Smartvisor. This is a three accessory set: the smartvisor itself as well as left and right Wristcomps. All have detailed rotating technical readouts enhanced with color change scripting and a subtle use of glow that doesn't beat you over the head.
These sleek chromed accessories are perfect for most dark roleplay environments like Lost Angels, Midian, Toxia, etc but are also great for someone that wants more of a cyberpunk punch up to their outfits.
The sets come in eight colors: Black, Silver, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, Red and Yellow, and in a special 'trashed' set with a completely different texture set that's more appropriate for post apoc looks.
As far as scripting, the wrists have the ever popular Lockmeister scripting for the cyberpunk deviants out there. There are three different color settings: Visor, Main and Detail, allowing you to set different colors for different parts of the set's readouts.
Say "/4 main COLOR" where color taken from the list below, to change the color of the main part of the tech displays. example: say "/4 main crimson" to make the circles a nice reddish color.
Say "/4 detail COLOR" where color taken from the list below, to change the color of the detailing of the tech displays. example: say "/4 detail crimson" to make the detailing a nice reddish color.
Say "/4 visor COLOR" where color taken from the list below, to change the color of the actual visor. example: say "/4 visor crimson" to make the visor a nice reddish color.
The Edentech Smartvisor set is 200L for a single color or 900L for a set of all nine.
