Coming Soon: SexGen Dark Eden beds!

Not a lot of people know that originally Dark Eden sold furniture, not kinky boots. We've decided to take kink to the next level, and in the process go back to our roots. We're extremely proud and excited to be working with Stroker Serpentine on a new SexGen project. We have been quite busy lately on bedroom sets for the Dark Eden Girl who wants a little more. Below we have a little teaser pic, involving me, the love of my life, and one of our new beds.

We have traditional, modern and more roleplay friendly designs that are fully SexGen capable. Look for a post soon with more information on where when and how you can get your hands on our new SexGen Dark Eden beds and furnishings!

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

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 picture in world. The picture must contain at least one item from the Dark Eden store, and must be of just one person. I like your group photos but there can be only one winner!
• The picture can be modified (as in photoshop, gimp, etc) or not as you choose, either by you or by a friend with mad photoshop skillz. This is a new rule and we are curious to see how it affects entries.
• Enter your snazzy new picture to flickr group:
You can enter more than one picture a month but don't go crazy please or I will have to go crazy on you and I'm crazier, trust me.

How does it work?
Around the middle of the month, we'll convene a meeting of our super secret ultra exclusive panel of judges. These judges will peruse all entries 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.

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. 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 or photoshopping, its perfectly acceptable for you to get a friend to do it for you.
TL:DR Version
Submit your pics to now, you can photoshop them if you want, good luck!

The lovely and talented Alexa Lioncourt had this to add in comments, "Please also be aware that you can enter older pictures as long as they have not been submitted previously! I've seen many amazing pics on Flickr and I'd love to see them added to the group!"
I couldn't agree more.

Dark Eden Girl Finalists!

We have four lovely Dark Eden Girl Finalists waiting for your votes! For those unfamiliar with our little contest, you can visit the main Dark Eden store in Olive, go into the outfits building and cast your vote on a voting machine for your favorite girl. Here are the four finalists:

Now a quick note. We are changing the way we accept submissions to this contest, and a few of the rules. Instead of sending in a screenshot and notecard, we have set up a flickr group! I will be posting another post later today outlining the new rules and submission guidelines!

NEW: Neko Boots

Our new Neko boots are leather boots with armor plates bolted into the toes and heel. They have rough knit legwarmers over them with all sorts of brickabrack tied off by leather straps, including: handcuffs, a wine flask, several stuffed animal toys, a sarubobo (japanese good luck charm), dog tags, scissors, a technomancer style pda.

It is textured with rough white knit legwarmers, but they have our familiar color change script in them. Simply type out “/4 legs red” for example to give your legwarmers a red hue. There's a jpg chart and a list of the colors for easy reference.

The Neko Boots are 250L and include both brown and black leather shoes.
