New Female Shape Release @ ~Hourglass~

Happy Xmas Eve, everyone! So I've been pretty hectic lately working on some new things..redid all the vendors with frames.. pretty classy, I was excited! And within the next few days I'll be releasing a few more male and female shapes. The first I've finished is a really unique and pretty shape, customized for M&R Cupcakes "Celebrity" line, which I think is really gorgeous and is up there with my favorite skins! Take a look.

I found the skin really unique and delicate, and tried to portray that with the shape. The shape is now available at my mainstore and Starlust locations, and demos are out for you to try!

Hope you enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

Peace on Earth Hunt *Gift Shape*

Hourglass is participating in the grid-wide Peace on Earth Hunt this year and this is my contribution:

Mijn Boa is an incredible SL artist and is also very well known across the world iRL as well (Mijn Schatje). This shape is to go with her "Ma Peau" series of skins, which are works of art in themselves. You can check out Mijn's gallery in the Hotel Dare if you'd like to see her work!

Hope you enjoy the gift-- available starting December 2nd thru the 31st!

Come get tall, dark, & handsome @ Hourglass

Who ordered tall, dark, and handsome? Well, Hourglass has it! Fresh from the pages of a magazine or a movie screen.. this handsome guy brings something different to the field of male shapes. An anatomically correct, non-boxy, non-my-muscles-are-bigger-than-my-face shape for the guy who wants a fun, young, and sexy look!

The shape measures at an in-world height of 6 ft 4 in. and was specifically created for the new line of men's skins from Karamia, which are amazing!!

As always the shape is copy/mod/no trans, and available at my new mainstore in Fantasma Plaza (climb the rope to the 2nd floor)! Demos available inside the entrance of the shop. More men's shapes on the way in the next few weeks!

*NEW* Mainstore & Fantasma Mall Opening TODAY! :D

I've been a busy bee these past few weeks, all in preparation for the grand opening of the new Hourglass mainstore. Had to move with all the LL openspace sim tier increases, but I'm really happy to be at my new home at Fantasma!

Fantasma is a themed sim designed by Brutus Martinek (of Pididdle). The sim itself resembles an old abandoned town, with a few special, magical touches. Other stores on the sim include Alchemy, Bagley, Golden Delish, Heart Attack & Vine, Humby Designs, lessthan3, Pididdle, Pig, Schadenfreude, Silent Sparrow, Smersh, Split Pea, and Twosome. It's a great little community!

The new Hourglass Mainstore @ Fantasma

The official sim opening is TODAY Monday, December 1st, and many of the shops will be giving out gifts for the occasion. I've created two special shapes, which you can find in a crate right as you enter :)

I hope you enjoy the new sim, the build, take lots of pics and show me!

TP to Fantasma!

MUCH more coming this week! Keep an eye out!

Grande Opening of NEW Hourglass Shapes Mainstore

I'd like to invite you all to join me on November 1st, 2008 for the grande opening of the new ~Hourglass Shapes~ mainstore!

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with myself and my store, I make shapes customized for different skin brands. I've always been the kind of person who tweaked my own personal shape with every skin, even if it was just slightly, to really enhance the beauty of the skin. I've taken my own shapes, given them unique features, and made them available to you!

Since my spontaneous "80's Workout" theme party went so well the other day for myself and my group members, I've decided to repeat the theme for the opening! So come dressed in your best 80's garb, dance, laugh, shop, fish, and just enjoy yourself!

In preparation for this opening, I've literally doubled the inventory of my shop, making 6 new shapes for the following skins:
Nylon Outfitters
Tuli (Meredith & Sumi)
Minajunk (Harajyuku)
D-Skin #42
Rockberry (Megan)

My original shapes are all available M/C/NT for 500L each. Demos are free and available for all shapes!

You'll find my shop amidst a forest in the sky, with a small pond for 7S Fishing (2 custom prizes are available! A shape for Tuli's "Black Swan" skin series, as well as a shape for Rockberry's "Mia"). So cast a line and good luck!

I look forward to meeting you all and hope you enjoy my shapes and the atmosphere I've created!
