NEW: Ruin Collars

Ruin Collars are distressed leather chokers matched with rusted metal rings and spike details, along with a thick rusted metal lock holding it all in place. They come in five colors: Black, Dirt, Mushroom, Husk and Moss, matching the new Vagabond and Nomad boots.

The Ruin Collars are 100L for each color, or 250L for all five colors.

As a side note, this is my first item where the "Purchase Online" link will take you to Xstreet instead of Onrez. I already miss Onrez and its not gone yet, but I am quickly warming up to Xstreet. I hope we all make the best of this transition!

Onrez and XStreetSL and Lindens Oh My

I'm sure the news has been filtering around here and there in the SL fashionosphere. Onrez and XStreetSL have been bought by Linden Lab and are being merged. Onrez is being closed and everything is being migrated to Xstreet.

From the SL Blog:

"OnRez will remain active until Wednesday, February 11th, 2009 to allow the current OnRez users to migrate their accounts and listings over to Xstreet. During this time, people are free to continue to make purchases and use OnRez just as they have prior to this announcement, however, we recommend that instead, they begin learning Xstreet and supplying us with feedback if it is missing features which they enjoyed with OnRez. Once we have reached the end of this period, we will shut down the OnRez marketplace and fully concentrate on Xstreet."

I loved Onrez and will really miss it, but the important thing right now is for us designers who have our stuff exclusively on Onrez to start moving over!

I want to become the Dark Eden Girl of the Month!

The Dark Eden Girl of the Month contest is now entering its third year. We've gone through a lot of changes and we're seeing a lot of fresh faces around the store. Given all that, we thought it would be a good idea to update our rules and post them for all the new Dark Eden Girls out there.

What is this all about?
Its a monthly beauty and fashion contest for fans of Dark Eden now entering its third year.

How do I enter?
• Take a screenshot of yourself in world. MUST be a screenshot, textures will be disqualified.
• Make sure the screenshot is full permissions (mod/copy/transfer) If its not full perms I can't use it, sorry!
• Attach the screenshot to the notecard (just drag and drop it in!)
• Name the notecard - Dark Eden Girl and your name (Dark Eden Girl - Jane Doe)
• Send the notecard to Alexander Stygian at ANY TIME. You do not have to wait for some special notice or time of the month.
How does it work?
Around the middle of the month, we'll convene a meeting of our super secret ultra exclusive FIC-er than FIC panel of judges. These judges will gather up all the entries from the past month and pick our four favorites. After that, the decision is completely out of my hands. I put the four pics up in the store and put a voting machine up. Then your fate is decided by the collective votes of all your fellow Dark Eden Girls (and boys). May the best Dark Eden Girl win!
What do I get?
Aside from satisfaction, glory and envy of your friends, the winner receives A) $2000L B) A gift box filled with the latest Dark Eden products and C) your image will be featured on the Dark Eden Girl wall in the main store in Olive for one month.
How about if I become one of the 4 finalist but don’t win?
To us you’re all winners and will all receive A) $500L and B) a gift box filled with the latest Dark Eden Products.
If I lose or my picture isn't chosen can I enter again?
YES! Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right. We encourage people to keep trying!
Can guys enter?
YES! But there's no special class for guys. You have to compete with the girls and be sexier, more stylish more hot and tempting and juicy than all the other girls that month! Its a tough thing to ask any guy. So far only one (Alushee Essex) has made it to the finals but we're still waiting on our first official Dark Eden Guy of the Month. It could be you!
Can you give me some advice on what pics work best?
Why we sure can!
Background: This is probably one of the most important things. Make your picture interesting! Staging your picture can make the difference between entering the contest and being chosen as a finalist. Also remember to balance your background with your look. If your have a dark skin, dark clothing and dark hair, you will be lost against a dark background.
What to wear: It’s all about Dark Eden but we want you to be creative and have fun. Mix and match! Shakes things up! Show off your creativity and style! All we ask is that you use at least one Dark Eden product in your picture. You can mix in things from other designers to complement your look. Just remember the whole point is to make Dark Eden and yourself look awesome!
Pose: What looks great inworld in 3-D doesn’t always look the same in 2-D in a picture. Is the pose flattering to you and the clothing? Does it highlight your best attributes?
Lighting: Lighting is important. We want to see you! If your picture is too dark, we can’t see you and neither can the voters.
Nudity: Nudity is neither required nor forbidden. You can pose full nude if you wish as long as you have on at least something from the store. Does not posing nude hold you back? No! In fact a lot of times leaving something to imagination has been a girl's ticket to winning. Your grandmother had a point when she said 'leave them wanting more.'
Photographer: Finally, if you aren't so hot with screenshot taking, its perfectly acceptable for you to get a friend to take the picture for you. The only thing that matters is that its a screenshot and not photoshopped in any way.


Congratulations to our new Dark Eden Girl: ZUZU PELOUS! Zuzu is our last winner for 2008! Congratulations Zuzu!

Its a little hard to believe but we are now entering our third year of Dark Eden Girls. For new customers who are a little unsure what its all about, how you enter, etc, I'll be reposting some rules and guidelines later today. Four new finalists will be chosen on Monday to be the first Dark Eden Girls of 2009 so get your entries in now!

NEW: Vagabond Gloves

These distressed leather armlet/gloves have thick leather straps with rusted metal buckles. They come in five new color choices: black, dirt, mushroom, husk and moss. They're made to complement the other items in my newish line, the Vagabond and Nomad boots, Ruin skirts, etc, so try them out together!
The Vagabond Gloves come in five color choices at 100L each or 250L for all five.

I've taken out the holiday stuff from the in store freebie chairs and replaced it with new Vagabond Boots and Ruin Skirts, done in blood red! You cannot currently purchase these color choices so come on down and grab some freebies!
EDIT: Added the very important word 'currently' in there. I didn't mean to imply that you could never ever purchase the blood color at some point in the future and just wanted to get ahead of things before people got the wrong idea!

NEW: Ruin Skirts

Ruin Skirts are distressed leather miniskirts matched with rusted metal buckles and spike details. They come in five colors: Black, Dirt, Mushroom, Husk and Moss, matching the new Vagabond and Nomad boots. They are VERY short, so be warned, and there is no glitch layer, only thong panties of a matching color. Not for the faint of heart, the Ruin skirts are perfect for Dark Eden Girls looking to get in some trouble.
The Ruin Skirts are 200L for each color, or 500L for all five colors.

NEW: Nomad Boots

These distressed leather boots have a thick boot and heel giving them a rugged and durable look. They have a loose leather calf kept in place by two thick leather belts with rusted buckle details. They come in five new color choices: black, dirt, mushroom, husk and moss. They're designed for the post apocalypse or steampunk sim, or just a night on the town.
The Nomad Boots come in five color choices at 200L each or 500L for all five.

NEW: Vagabond Boots

These knee high distressed leather boots have a high spiked heel and five thick straps up the leg. Completing the look is a thick rope cinch on top. They represent a little bit of a new direction for me. They come in five new color choices: black, dirt, mushroom, husk and moss. They're designed for the post apocalypse sim, or perhaps the urban wizard's laboratory.

The Vagabond Boots come in five color choices at 200L each or 500L for all five.

After many requests from role-players, I've decided to take a different approach to my new designs.
For the past few months I've been playing around with new color lines and styles that work together across product releases the way previous Dark Eden designs do (Lilith, etc). This has lead me to a new direction in my products that should take me through 2009.
I love to hear your ideas and suggestions so please send me an IM or note with your thoughts!
