My shop

I never ran a shop in Second Life, I did build some things, but never thought they were good enough to sell, and the expense of setting up was offputting. Then Inworldz came along and changed all that.

As a kid I liked to doodle ladies in various positions and randomly draw arms and legs so discovering posemaking was a revelation. If only you could make money in real life doing poses! I'd been dabbling with Qavimator in SL, but the upload costs were breaking me and anyway they already had Su Voir . In my opinion she is the best pose crafter out there and I can only aspire to reach her standard. There's definitely an art to making a convincing pose, and even photo referenced ones can look awful if you don't have the feel for it. Anyway, here's some of my work:

Jodee Mistwalker of dAlliez estates very kindly responded to my forum request for shop space, and then recently Raven Dulce actually sought me out and gave me space in Bellissima Square. Things have grown unbelievably fast in the last week or so. I've just done a revamp of the dAlliez shop. The before and after pics are below:

The topless guy in the picture is not my latest virtual hunk (who wants one of those?) but my pose-testing alt. His name is Drew and he is a hybrid of Brandon Lee and Trent Reznor. I will close this post now in order to drool privately.


  1. Mmmmm I'll take some Trent! I knew we were fast friends for a reason! I love your poses Lyds, they are truly unique and fun, by far my favorite in Inworldz!

  2. Thank you Talia! I apologise for the self-centered nature of the blog, I'm just getting used to blogging really.
