Free AO's

This question gets asked alot in a couple different groups. Who makes a good free AO for a new person? I have one in my store, based on the ZHAO HUD. I made it with poses from my good friend Neural Blankes. I needed an ao with a sexy walk and some nicer natural poses. I was tired of my "model" ao where I was talking to someone about business or what have you.. and BAM! I'm thrusting my crotch at them. Also annoying are the ao's where you yawn and stretch or walk around in a circle, or do a little dance like your bladder is full. Really, people!

Mine is here on Xstreet
Here is a GREAT male one. It's not $1L for gift giving but it IS transfer in world
and they make a nice female one also

Do you have a favorite free AO? Please tell me it's not that gangsta or ninja ao or that damn model one that has you posing on your toes all the time. Put it in the comments! We appreciate it.

Update! I have reset my damn Xstreet box and tested delivery.. please.. try again if you didn't receive your AO. Stupid SL..


Here we are in the middle of the year. It's not really summer here in my RL. It's been strangely cold and rainy. I wore a sweatshirt on the 4th of July! This is NOT midsummer in Ohio!

I've been pondering my store, again. I think I'm starting to make better shoes. I can rez some of my old old pairs and just CRINGE at the prim work. What was I THINKING?

So I need your help. I'm gonna post a couple questions here on my blog. If you feel like it. Answer them here, or send me a notecard in world. I will reward you with a pair of unreleased shoes. How's that for easy?

#1. When you are about to go shopping, how do you shop? Do you use the search, the blogs, etc?

#2. What makes you buy a certain product? Price, quality, name?

#3. How do you find out about sales and contest?

#4. What makes you add yourself to a subscribe o matic or in world group?

#5. What would make you more willing to purchase shoes from me?

#6. What do you dislike about my store and/or brand?

#7. Do you have a fashion blog and would you like to be my list for receiving review packs?

#8. What is your style, Goth, preppy, neko?

#9. What do you think is missing from shoes in SL?

#10. What is your inworld name and who would you like me to deliver the shoes to?

Thank you in advance!

Help Needed!

The Zero Linden store is an amazing place, filled with all sorts of good FREEBIES. Not dollarbies or cheapies. Freebies. It's done out of the goodness of the owner Naastik Rau's heart. As far as I know, the person who OWNS the sim hasn't paid LL and LL is repoing the sim. Naastik needs our help in finding a new place to go and GETTING the new place. I've moved in SL before and it's a paaain in the TUSH. Come help if you can. Rent an Adboard if you have a store, or just come donate a little cash, bring your friends. I've been in world for over three years and there are some good items here that I haven't even seen before.

Flickr your boogers

hahah.. I've restarted my Flickr group. There's a link on the side of my blog page. But if you look.. I've put a link here in the post. Miskat is my Flickr Guru. I knew NOTHING about Flickr til he yelled at me about letting my group go to pot. So.. any questions can be directed to ME.. but I'll just ask him about it. I know enough to log in and look a pics. Yay me! I did however, on my own, add a Flickr thingie to the side of my blog. Look at me! I can use technology. WOOT! I have special announcement coming tomorrow.. or well.. Sunday night in MY world about Flickr. Keep your eyes here.

I also have some amazing new stuff coming. Something that will REALLY interest those of you who LIKE shoes.. and you really really REALLY like them. *wink*

It's Bandana Day! Bandana Day is July 3rd when all us crazy Hair Lovers trade in our prim locks for a good cause. If you made it to the Hair Fair, I hope you picked up one of these fab $50L bandanas. All money goes to Locks of Love! So hurry down to the Hair Fair and grab one or two.. they are transferable so pick some up for a friend who can't handle the lag at the Fair.

Here I am in the Winx Bandana. I HAD to have it cause it goes SOOO well with my Carmen platforms I put outback at the Shoe Expo in 2008. Of course I had to do it up, old movie poster style. I usually don't do much postprocessing on my photos.. but.. Bandana Day called for it!
