Gears in motion.

Ive been meaning to blog here for a while...Ive been so busy lately.

So Ive comfortably settled back into SL and Ive consistently been releasing new clothing. It feels good to be enjoying SL again and Im in love with designing for my store. Im all inspired and motivated to create new clothing and I feel that after coming back from my break Im reaching another level of quality. The new sculptie prims are allowing me to create more realistic clothing, it brings that new dimension and its exciting to be working with something new.
A good friend of mine Snips has been putting me through my paces when it comes to sculpts. Coming back into SL I knew that I wanted to improve. Seeing the influx of new designers really made it apparent that I had to change with SL to stay competitive. Snips was great about listening to my ideas and telling me what was possible and what was too outlandish. I didnt really know what was all possible with sculpts until working with Snips. We've made a great team so far and Ive really pushed myself with my textures to fit the flow of the sculpts. Communication has been the key, I have always drawn out my designs for Snips to make my ideas clear. I thought Id share some of those sketches for people to see. :D

So, in other news. The show that Im apart of got put back. But it should be going down soon, its for Hommes magazine. Im happy I was able to get all 8 outfits for them together and am excited to see how the event goes down.

Ive also been trying to help promote the Block. Ive been not only pro active about my store and its releases Ive also wanted to help give The Block that push, its been nice to be around my friends and feel inspired and invigorated by working with them. You can catch the Block blog here! Im excited about seeing the new stuff all the Blockers will be getting out!

Im currently working on some more clothing. A completely new jacket that I think people will enjoy as well as some suits and blazers. Im also hoping to purchase land for myself...think its over due for me to have my own mainstore. Watch this space.

Peace out cool cats!

Hey guys.
So some of you may have spotted the hoodies Ive put out not long ago. There are currently two flavours available : Guile and iCON Red. Ive really been inspired by Bape. I love their patterned textures and Ive tried to offer some unique patterns of my own. I have two more styles yet to release : Ronin and Scribe. Which should be available very soon. The designs are available for both men and women.

The hoodies come with various wearing styles. You can roll up the sleeves, wear them down. You can wear it with the shirt/tank provided or with another of your choice. And of course, you can wear the hood up or down. Aemilia was kind enough to make some hair for the hoods when worn up which you can also grab at my store or hers. I really wanted to offer as many wearing options as possible.

I also have some jeans that I have been working on. Ive really put in the time with them and the prototype version is looking really sharp. I'll be putting out various versions which I will be unveiling at an upcoming show (this Saturday I believe...more info soon) with a whole heap of new yummy goodness. Lots of exciting stuff happening at GearShift. :D

Peace out cool cats!

So yea, HI! Remember me?

First thing you'll probably notice...other then a NEW post. Is that Ive actually taken time to redesign my layout. *wipes brow* Finally!

A blog post is certainly well over due. My 'absence' lasted I think at the very least for 8 months and while Ive been back in SL for maybe a month or so, I'm still getting used to all the changes. Changes to SL of course, changes to SL fashion, changes in attitudes from people and changes to how my store is received.
One of the first things I noticed when getting back was how many people had cut me. I cant really hold it against them. Ive heard it from quite a few people and the shared consensus was that I probably wouldn't come back. I guess it really is out of sight out of mind. But for every person that gave up on me, there was someone genuinely happy to see me back regularly.
Time in SL really is condensed, being away for just a week can see you miss so much. So with my extended absence it really was like a system shock trying to compute everything that HAD changed. For the first few days I pretty much camped out at my work space trying to create new things. I felt really sheepish and the idea of IMing people just seemed awkward at best. I think friendships in a virtual environment without constant attention can easily break down. Your always meeting new people, sharing new experiences. So those that aren't regular can be left behind or forgotten and replaced. People I think can quickly turn from being a friend, to just another name on your list, to a collection of letters on a card that can be deleted - its all just a click away. So the idea of trying to build those bridges again was a scary thought. I didn't want to be rejected, thats how I felt. But people can surprise you, with as much thought as I was giving everything - analysing how big a douche people thought I was . There were those that just didn't care about any of that - they were just happy to see me at the end of the day. Of course there are still people I think that probably humor me with light conversation - I guess that connection kind of burnt out with me being away. But then I cant expect everything to be as it was, people move on and Ive begun to accept that.

So other then dealing with issues like that Ive been trying to get back to that designing thing. GearShift is and will always be something special to me. Its an outlet for me to share my ideas with people. And Im so glad to be back working on things that get me excited...things are fresh again and Im definately enjoying it. Before my break I was trying to develop another project called 'Rival Skoolz' It was going to coincide with my mainstore. Things sadly fell through with that, a few people let me down and with a new RL job, I couldnt see the idea through to completion. Looking back, I think I was tackling something a little too big for me at that time, its definately a project I want to see acomplished - But its a project for later down the line. I think my priority back then should have been getting GearShift grounded. So thats one thing Im trying to do with me coming back. On returning its almost like starting from ground zero. So I have a little work ahead of me re-establishing my brand name. And I have a few things that people have been excited about. Lets watch this space.

Peace out cool cats.
