Limited Edition Sakura Blossom Avatar

I am pleased to finally be able to announce the release of this limited edition avatar kit inspired by the famous cherry blossom dances held in Kyoto - and produced by myself, Orchid Dreams and Geisha Dreams skins.

It is a unique package of skins, shape, clothing and accessories. Limited to only 30 copies grid-wide, this is a chance for a unique look not ever to be duplicated!

10% of all proceeds will be for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

You can get your hands on it at my store, Orchid Dreams or Geisha Dreams.

EDIT: Orchid Dreams is now sold out - so there are less than 20 of these left!

February Kanzashi

I had planned to have these out yesterday, but best laid plans and all that...

A popular choice for February's kanzashi is plum blossom, or ume, to mark the coming of spring.

Junior maiko wear kanzashi made up of many tiny plum blossoms in shades of pink, white and red, often with the long flowing falls or shidare. Senior maiko choose single or miwa (three flower) kanzashi. As ever, the box contains both versions - so no need to worry about outgrowing them until you turn your collar.

The New Year is just around the corner, so for the maiko of Second Life it's almost time to change their kanzashi. January's ornament is now in, and once again includes hana kanzashi for junior and senior maiko and is available in either mod/copy or mod/trans.

This is the junior version:

New kimono, new store and something to keep the sun... er... snow off you

Finally! The Flower & Willow great update is done! Every single one of my kimono has now been upgraded to feature new, more realistic, sleeves and obi and I have to say I'm very pleased with the way they've turned out! I've also dropped the prices and introduced the option to choose whether you want mod/copy or mod/trans items as well as opening a brand new store. Now I just have to update all my onrez, exchange listings...

Anyway, here are the new releases. First up, two new kimono:

And a new freebie:

There are also seven parasol designs now in - these are scripted to open and close on touch and have a built in animation override for both the open and closed states. Here are a few pictures of my favourites:

Flickr photostream

The observant among you may have noticed that I've added a Flickr slideshow to the side of the blog. Well, cause just having pictures of me there will get boring, I've started up a Flower & Willow Flickr group here. Please feel free to join and add pictures of you in Flower & Willow stuff!

Back on home shores

I'm back in the country after my break overseas, so if anyone has any outstanding enquiries please do feel free to drop me an IM.

Things may still be a little quiet on the ground for a while, with a lot of behind the scenes work going on. Every single one of my kimono is currently undergoing an overhaul, with new and updated prim work, and there are also some new designs in the works.

Group members will be getting a free preview very shortly!
