Tanks and kicks!

Things are getting a lil hectic reaching this weekend. I have quite a few stores I have to set up. SL wasnt entirely friendly to me last night, I couldnt log into SL at all or the website. It wasnt until about 12pm today when things were able to roll for me again, so thats set me back a little. But Im sure I shall have things sorted for an exciting block weekend.

Im SOOOOO behind on so many things. I have a back log of shit Ive made but havent released. My Ryu hair, my uniforms, more tracksuits and some polos. And my mainstore STILL isnt finished. I'll release the goodies little by little, Im sure once these shopping sims are open I'll have time to work and build on my store again.

I have released some new tank tops for girls just recently. Its one of those things I get nagged a bit about. Are you doing more womens clothing? So I finally got off my lazy arse and put together some tank tops to appease the people. Im actually quite pleased with the template I got through. Im a sucker for detail, so heres hoping you guys enjoy them. Big thanks goes out to the awesome Leila who helped pose for my ads. ^_^

Ive gotten into this habit of just releasing a WHOLE bunch of stuff together at the same time. After chatting with Rosie I realised it might be better for the store if I stretch out my releases. It would keep people checking back at the store, and keep my name in the forums a lil longer. So, with this installment of my releases I got out 5 new tanks and the Relics Casual for girls. ^^; I have been meaning to get them out for a while, the textures have been done for a month or so. Well, better late then never eh?

So having taken care of the girls with that release I have some stuff coming up for the guys. Im getting out these polo and sweater combos, Ive been sitting on them for a little while and am actually pretty excited about them.
Ive been feeling a lot more confident about my designs. I dont think my designs are as cluttered and over-bearing as before. I think Ive always had a nice technical understanding of putting my templates together, but now I feel my designs are a lot more solid. Something that I feel Ive accomplished if anything in my time as a clothing designer here in SL is that my brand is pretty unique. I mean, my designs and the overall flavour of my items are my own. The GearShift identity is completely different from say FORM or Renegade. I think its important for every clothing designer to have their own flavour that sets them apart, the little quirks and character of your brand are all things that can see you have longevity and success...well, thats what I think anyway. *laugh*

The polo and sweater combos come with prim collars. The set can see you wear the sweater with the polo, or they are perfectly able to both stand on their own. I'll be getting them out with some more goodies for guys just before the weekend.
Well, I'll leave you with that kids.

Peace out pretty kitties!
