Howdy Boys and Girls,

While I was moseying about the grid I found a really spectacular offer from the designers at The Bobbysocks Shop (Demented Isle 186, 67, 25). Here you'll find 13 pairs of boots completely free nestled among some great cowboy, cowgirl, and Native American gear. You'll also have the opportunity to pick up a prairie style outfit for the girls or a cowboy outfit for the guys.

I used the L'Oreal free skins that can be found at Calla or Nuclear Boutique among other places. To find the L'Oreal skins open your search window and search for " L'oreal " via the places tab. Why am I not giving the slurl? Because search is your friend and this is a tool that everyone should learn to use.

Chrissie Miller on designing SOPHOMORE

Chrissie Miller's SOPHOMORE is taking off and expanding in her direction as a once strictly T-shirt company into a full blown line of clothing reminiscent of the old lower east side. This is not a line for hipster-ism. There is a very contemporary vibe to what she is doing. To think this all started as one big happy accident. Which is why I always try to push the idea out there to just do your art. Get it out there not 100% perfect. But expose yourself. And who knows what will happen next?!

-From what I understand you where a graphic artist who accidentally spawned a line of kitschy pop culture T shirts meant for friends only and voila it just blew up from there. Tell me a little bit about your beginning, and was it way overwhelming?
The beginning was the best part!

We made 72 t-shirts for Charlotte Ronson's store, then Daily Candy wrote about it and then we got orders from tons of stores including Bloomingdales! We didn't even have a company name yet! I thought I was going to be a graphic designer, but couldn't find a job. Then when our t-shirts starting doing well, it gave me a job! I love clothes and had so many ideas, it just felt right.

- For a few years now I've noticed you how you have a quirky sense of humor when it comes to the sayings that are printed on your T's ie ( The New York Crimes)... Currently Just Another Rich Kid is doing the same thing. Are you 2 friends that have happened to influence one another? If not what do you think of his work?

I've never heard of "just another rich kid"... We were inspired by the whole NY underground t-shirt culture. Brands like aNYthing, Danucht, Fuct, Ssur. None of those lines were really doing womens clothes so i wanted to put great graphics on good bodies.

- I love Cory Kennedy's style and would have loved to be in her shoes at that age (Hell this age too)... Lately she's been name dropping SOPHOMORE all over her high profile blog. How where you 2 introduced and has this really expanded your business, is the Sophomore fan base growing???

Ha!! I LOVE Cory, she is the most photogenic person I know! We met because she was dating my friend Wade (from the Virgins). She's a Pisces, I'm Pisces... She likes fashion, I like fashion it just works! I do get a lot of emails from her fans and now that I'm on her top friends on myspace my friend requests have tripled!

- When you are designing at your showroom what are you listening to these days musically? And what is the Showrooms atmosphere like?

Good question! I ALWAYS listen to music when I work. Right now I listen to The Virgins, Radiohead's In Rainbows and Amy Winehouse!

- Is your company involved in any charities, if so please tell us a little bit about which ones?

There are a few I am interested in getting involved with but nothing officially.

-You know there is kind of a soft spot I have for your line, it really reminds me of X-GIRL in the late 90's when Kim Gordon started this little brand of clothing, and had Chloe Sevigny sporting it around town as well as Kathaleen Hannah from Bikini Kill flaunting it in her video's. Not sure if you grew up around that era while "KID'S" the movie came about. But were you associated at all or into X-GIRL, and have you ever thought for a second "I take after that a bit coincidentally?"

WOW! That is a huge complement!!! Thank you so much! I think the 90's are in the air right now so I think for sure that came out in the clothes. I love the idea of being nostalgic with without looking vintage. Staying contemporary is key.

7 I get the feeling you and Charlotte Ronson are friends with Similar career paths. Did you always know each other, and do you ever plan to collaborate with one another?

Charlotte is one if my best friends! We have known each other since high school. We collaborate all the time, we did that Vote Ronson t-shirt together. (I think it was on your blog right?)

It was I thought is was way clever!Well thank you for your time,and I look forward for years to come with SOPHOMORE, what can we expect in the future from you?

Thank you! I'm a big fan of denim and I have yet to find a great line (even though there are tons) So maybe we will do a denim line some day..

-Kristen May Anastasia


You can purchase my head bands on ETSY!!! I will update it again soon!!!

Anthropomorphs Galore

If your looking for a variety of anthropomorphic avatars you might want to check out Yiffy Yaffle's store ($0) ( where in a small free box (71 Quality Free Furry AVs v1.2) you'll find a wealth of furry goodies among a ton of other freebies. Here is just a small sampling of the avatars (all these are female, but there were more male avatars in the box- so guys if you're into anthropomorphic avatars this would be a jackpot for you.):

Taylor Made Collie:

All the photos were taken at Groll's Inn & Hideout (Clematis Island). More after the cut...

The avatars made by Wingless were boxed according to color and contain both male and female versions in the boxes. There are also several hairstyles and a hud included with the horse avatar that may help newer players who are unfamiliar with editing linked prims customize the avatar. If you've wanted to try out a furry or anthropomorph and haven't yet, this is your perfect opportunity.

Having fun

Todays whole outfit started with these sort of funky, kind of cute unisex steam powered skates I found on a Japanese sim. The shirt I bought ($1) from a store Cheri Pye recommended named Frozen Turquoise Valentine which had a number of dresses, but I really like this shirt which I modeled sans boa. The shirt seemed to match the pants perfectly to, which I picked up at one of my favorite stores Kurotsubaki. And the hair from Adimu just seemed to pull everything together.

Primalot -Steals and Deals

I vaguely remember seeing something written about Primalot (Blackmount 7, 121, 706) around the ever hectic Halloween season, but sadly to say I quickly forgot about it. Yesterday after a friend checked out a Freestyle notice about a witch outfit (which I unfortunately clicked through) she tped me to the store saying that there were a couple other things to checkout. Although the store does offer male clothing all the free outfits are for females. But, there are a couple unisex items in the free section: neko ears & tail ($0) and I think the caged heart chocker may also work for a male ($1). I also think the Halloween Witch outfit would make an excellent Halloween Warlock.

What I can show you from the store are four looks. The last is a complete avatar priced at $10, which I thought was pretty reasonable especially when you'd likely pay more for just the hat that is part of the avatar. So here are the looks:

The Halloween Witch included a scripted crow with pose and sound:

Primalot_Halloween Witch

The little snowflake outfit included a wand that emitted particles while playing an animation along with 3 skirt options:

Primalot_Little Snowflake

The Valentina Red was priced for $0, but the other colors in the room were priced at regular price:

Primalot_Valentina Red

All the above outfits were photographed with various skins from previously blogged Coquette ( * C ASM Series II Skins $1. The next picture is of a $10 starter avatar set that includes a freebie skin along with outfit made by Primalot.

Primalot_Silvestra Sparkle_10

The Silvestra Sparkle outfit also included a wand with sparkles and the skirt and shawl parts were scripted to bling, but the hat is bling free.

Overall I think the store is worth the time to look around. It's small and it won't take a lot of time and there are a number of cute items there. Also many of the dresses included shoes, hair, and jewelry.

Spring Wishes

It's that weird sort of year when it's still a bit cold, but everyone is thinking ahead to spring. I put together an outfit that gives just a hint of spring thanks to the strawberry skirt from Feather:

Strawberry Skirt
Hair: Mod's Hair ( $0
Eyes: Shop BF part of free avatar ( $0
Skin:*CASM - ModLips - Silver/Pink from * C ASM Series II Skins found at Coquette/Go Dutch ( $1
Skirt: Berry Mini Skirt from Feather ( $0
Shirt: Free Topps Kurotsubaki ( $0
Shoes: Free Red Loli Mary Janes from She's So Unusual ( $1
Necklace & Earrings: (Shiny Things) Enamel Flower Jewelry available at the Gnubie Store ( $0

While you're at She's so Unusual picking up the shoes you may want to look around. There are 10 pairs of shoes hidden around the store priced at $10 until February 25th at which time the store will close for remodel.

Monday, 18 February 2008


I first stumbled upon this sim searching for the much blogged about 69 (shoe, hat, and accessories store). Although some of the areas still look like they are being developed most appear to be finished and ready for business. If you're strapped for time I'll suggest two main areas that need to be checked out, but really you could spend the better part of a day seeing everything that there is here. First, I'll suggest the ECS Katurin Park ( a free market (no not freebie - free as in non-discriminatory free trading) that houses several merchants. Many of the merchants have put up free items. You'll find the bulk of the items located in the four corners of the market: complete outfits for both males & females, hair, jewelry, and tons of novelties all $0.

ECS Katurin Park

Wow, that was a lot of stuff. All the outfits and hair are from ECS. I did use the valentine skin and unisex hair from another part of the sim. If you want the skin or unisex hair look at the list of free items that will be at the end of this entry. (larger photo here)

The second place I'd suggest you check out if you're pressed for time is another of the larger shopping areas on the ECS shopping mall ( which like the Katurin Park also offers a lot of goodies for both the female and male avatar especially any avatar 60 days or younger. Yes, you have to be a new player to get some of the items, but since I'm not new I can't show you any of those items. What I can show you is:

ECS Shopping Mall

Now guys, you have to admit that coat is pretty darn cool and the hat with hair is unisex both can be found on the second floor. The dress near the entrance on the first.

I know I suggest if you're strapped for time that you check out the two areas above, but keep in mind there is a lot here to see. You'll want to check out this sim really well because almost all vendors offer something for free. And almost all of the vendors are offering great prices for their items especially in the open market and the small vendor carts located here.

Oldie, but goodie Party Dress

This was one of the first freebies (well dollarbie) I found that clued me in that there were indeed cute things out there at an inexpensive price. I found the *Free* Colorful Party Dress ($1) at MM Clothing ( and thought I'd share in case anyone has missed it. It really is a cute little dress. You'll also want to take note that the sculpty hair and skins are from Bare Rose which has expanded their freebie selections and you can even find a couple of Drow skins available.

Another store of note is Mirada ( which has a number of $10 outfits for not only girls, but also guys.

It's ON.
