Rock Star!

I was planning on waiting to release this with the rest of the collection, but i just couldn't wait anymore so I will just have to release them one by one.

Soda has a new line called Soda Rocks! It's a collection of edgier clothes with a nice early 80s punk feel to them. So if that is your style, keep an eye out for the rest of the collection coming out soon.

So the first release is called the Rock Star outfit. It includes everything you see in the ad, plus.. the jacket comes in three different varieties, with back detail (as seen in the ad), arm detail, or no detail. (i was indecisive!)

New Residents: Check out Soda's new Freebie Clothing Line!

When Second Life melds with Real Life

It's become pretty obvious to most residents of SL that there is a new surge of outside interest and now all sorts of businesses, musicians, etc want a piece of the action. I know there is some mixed feelings on these sorts of ventures in SL. Lots of people are threatened by it, and a recent episode of Second Cast mentioned that there seemed to be little point or interest to most of these new corporate ventures that are springing up all over the place. I didn't think about it too much until recently, when it seems to have hit me by storm.
I am still pretty new to SL, but I am the only one in my circle of friends and aquaintences that is involved in SL at all. Most of them had not heard of it until i mentioned it to them. So naturally, when the interest is sparked, I am the person everyone comes to for information. So recently a friend of mine that works at Cartoon Network comes to me to ask tons of questions about Second Life.. when i ask him why he wants to know all this, he tells me that CN is considering entering SL. For what, excactly.. i am not sure. I suppose a company such as Cartoon Network could do a whole lot of things in Second Life... but what's in it for them?
Which brings me to my next surprise. As i may have mentioned before, I work as a designer at a digital advertising company. Our company has recently merged with another larger ad agency and is all interested in doing a slew of far out things... so one of those things happens to be Second Life. My company wants to open up an island... and of course, as the resident (i.e. only) Second Life player, i have been asked to meet with the CEO to talk about prospects. But here is where i am confused.. what in the world could a digital advertising agency offer in SL? What is the purpose? I suppose i am a bit lost on what exactly they want to achieve by owning an island in SL, but its all very strange to me. My virtual world has suddenly become a lot less virtual and much more real... and i am not sure how i feel about it....

Soda Does Sexy

Who says you can't be Bubbly AND Sexy?

These new sets are sexy, but not TOO sexy. Perfect for the girl who doesnt like to get all glammed up. There are two different styles, each in 3 different colors: Pink, Red and Black.
You can buy each color individually, or buy all 3 colors in a discounted pack. (One pack per style!) So thats 6 options in all!

I had heard that making undergarments was a challenge, and all the rumors were true! The SL avatar mesh just doesnt make undies look that flattering without a bit of work. Hopefully these attempts dont fail miserably, but i am certainly up to the challenge of creating more and improving upon the style.

Also in the works right now: I am working on a special line of clothing for new residents. Being semi new myself (a mere 4 months old!) i understand how frustrating it is to want cool clothes but not wanting to spend the cash on a game you are unsure you will continue playing. So i am going to make a collection of L$1 seperates, mostly coming from things i have made in the early stages of my designing but have never been released. So i am very excited about this.. keep an eye out for it in the near future!

One more thing! (i cant stop writing today!) If you visit my shop you may notice a small prefab hanging out on the island. This small little building is the future home of Sioxie's Designs. Sioxie Legend is a VERY new resident (as of 3 days ago!) and is a RL co worker of mine. She is a very talented artist and is interested in designing clothing too. I know she will go far! So i am loaning her a little space of my land to get started. So keep your eye out for her.. i have a feeling she will take off soon.

PS: Soda is always looking to improve upon its creations, so please do not hesitate to let me know your thoughts. What you like, what you don't like, what you would like to see, etc.

Colorful Cardigans for Every Mood

I had a good time making these little sweater sets. There is nothing I love more than a funky pattern. I probably could've continued to make a billion combinations of these, but I figured I'd better stop a a nice, healthy number of 4.

I think my favorite of the lot is the chocolate brown cardigan with the french blue tank underneath. Brown is just such a hip color these days I can't resist it.

Just for fun I made a couple new Faded Tees. Just figured seeing my own closet is full of thousands of tshirts I would try to spread the insanity onto others.

Also, in unrelated news, I finally found the skin i want to live in forever. After flip flopping and changing every five minutes, this one seen in my ads by Gala Phoenix has won me over! It's from the Autumn collection and i lovelovelove it! So i think i shall never take it off.
