Nine9 goes Petite

There is nothing quite the warm rich smell of leather and this super cute unisex outfit is full of it! I love the Steampunk vibe that comes from it. This outfit comes in both male and female and has a variety of leg versions to wear with your favorite pair of boots or shoes. Included is a very nice flowing jacket, collar and stylish top hat.

Petites are taking over!

I held out on getting a petite for a while now but new adorableness was too much to handle and I finally gave in! Star made my all time favorite dress *Fifi ala Mode* into petite size so I had to have it! You think this dress is cute as it is, wait till you see petite size! Star has been a busy bee converting her newest creations down into petite versions and I am soooo thrilled with the results. *Ribbons 'n Roses* is simply adorable so tiny! Each outfit still comes with multiple layering and different skirt options. AND she even has the super elegant *Isabelle* out (with 4 different skirts and 2 corset options and a smexy pants layer)! All these dresses are available down at the Petite Kingdom, but stop by the store and check the lucky to get the matching umbrella. OH OH OH and there are boots! Get the Cordelia boots in with Ash or Pretty in Pink. Ok I think that's all for now! Enjoy!

New texture sets from Star

“One day men will look back and say I gave birth to the twentieth century.” ~ Jack the Ripper, in the letter "From Hell"

The Whitechapel district of London in the late 1800's was a largely impoverished area. Robbery, violence and the abuse of alcohol was commonplace, and poverty drove many women to prostitution in order to survive. Whitechapel became infamous when the "Leather Apron" serial killer, who eventually became known as Jack the Ripper, began stalking "women of the night". The crimes were so horrific we still talk of them today.

As I have always been fascinated by gaslights and London fog, it was only natural that I was inspired to create some textures based on buildings from that period. I hope that I have, and continue to do them justice.

 Butchers Row, Aldgate High Street, late 1800's

Each set includes 34 plaseter based textures in different combinations along with 3 bonus textures featuring cracked and damaged walls. Set 1 is a package of all the walls without shadowed tops. Set 2 is the same set with shadowed walls which give them a bit more of a grungy look.
