Hourglass Shapes - Skin & Shape Expo Preview #2

The Skin & Shape Expo is fast approaching, and I've been busy making new shapes!

~Hourglass~ FILTHY (Dulcita) Shape

I discovered FILTHY on the feeds, and I decided to hop over-- and immediately fell in love with these skins-- completely unique, gives your face such a cute and glowing look to it. Surely to be one of the hot new places to grab a skin! Both male and female skins here too! This shape is for the line "Dulcita" which comes with TEETH! So cute!

~Hourglass~ Pink Fuel (Elly) Shape

The eagerly anticipated Elly skins are soooo close to being yours, can you taste it? Several makeups will be available at the Culture Shock event coming soon! This shape compliments the new Elly line, and also works well with several other skins!

These shapes will be available to purchase starting May 10th at the Skin & Shape Expo! More coming soon!

Hourglass Shapes - Skin & Shape Expo Preview #1

After a long hiatus from making shapes, Hourglass is back and ready for the Skin & Shape Expo -- which is happening May 10th-20th! At the expo, you can expect tons of new releases from your favorite skin and shape designers. Get more info on the expo here!

For those of you who may not already know, Hourglass is a shop based around designing shapes to compliment popular skinlines. Many of you know from your own experiences that the most beautiful skins require meticulous tweaking of your shape to look absolutely perfect on you-- and I've gone ahead and taken out the guesswork for you. My first preview post will showcase three of my newest female shapes which will be available at the Expo in a few weeks!

~Hourglass~ Mynerva (Sophie) Shape
Truly one of my favorite skins. Not the newest range from this designer, but still absolutely stunning. I rarely take this skin off, simply because the skin itself is so unique.

~Hourglass~ League (Sia) Shape
Showcasing the newest skinline from League, Sia is a showstopper. The most adorable button nose and curves for days, guaranteed people will notice you when you wear this skin-- just make sure you're wearing it right!

~Hourglass~ Curio (Lustre) Shape
I am a longtime fan of Curio skins, and was thrilled when Lustre was released! The skin has brilliant shading and highlighting and is delicate and highly detailed. This shape seeks to accentuate everything amazing about this skin.

That's it for now, but all week I'll be making new shapes to show to you. MALE SHAPES are also in the works!! (YAY!)

If you are a skin designer and would like me to showcase your skin at the Expo (in the form of a shape), please drop an in-world message to Averie Larnia.

Pictured above: The Just for the Guys Hunt prize from Hourglass Shapes,
a shape optimized for Dutch Touch's "NiK" male skinline.

Hourglass Shapes Mainstore Grande Opening!

It's been a long time coming, but the Hourglass Shapes mainstore is finally open!

The store sits near the swamp on the spooky sim of Elliott on Starlustland. And I've finally got enough room to showcase all my shapes, including my eight new releases from the Skin & Shape Expo! In celebration, I'm holding a mini-hunt!

Search in, out, up, and down for five sculpted hourglasses. The hourglasses are $1L/each and contain modifiable and limited perms shapes for men and women both! There's also a special hourglass containing a full series set of grey eyes from =HooT=.

I'm so glad to finally have the mainstore open! Hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more from me really soon!

Love you all!

Hourglass Shapes @ the Skin & Shape Expo!

Hourglass Shapes is proud of be a part of the 2009 Skin & Shape Expo, the first expo of its kind to include both skin and shape designers TOGETHER-- which to me, is how it should be. At least for my SL-business, skins and shapes have *always* come hand-in-hand. When it comes down to it, without the right shape, an avatar may not truly be harnessing the potential that any skin has to really look extra special and unique (without being bulky and disproportionate!).

So for this event, I've put together a staggering EIGHT new shape releases-- my biggest all-at-once release to date! And as a special incentive to come see the newness and shop-- every single one of my 8 new shapes will have 50% of proceeds going to charity-- the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

New Releases for the Guys:

Pictured above (from left to right): Shapes for Zanzo's "Narcissus" and Imagen's "Daniel"

New Releases for the Ladies:

Pictured above (from left to right): Shapes for Pink Fuel's "Skye" and Tyranny's "Sweet Augustine"

Pictured above (from left to right): Shapes for Fashionably Dead (updated) and lessthanthree's "Phoebe"

Pictured above (from left to right): Shapes for Exodi's "Lily" and &Bean's "Lake"

Here's the official Expo poster, and a linky to get you to my booth! Enjoy!
