New @ [LAP] - Buncha Couples & Group Stuffs

I thought I had a bright idea (it was not), but instead I think I lost my mind (true story), when I attempted to take over the world (I failed) by way of a pose set. The holidays are coming up and with that, lots of parties and pictures. So...I thought, why not make a huge pose set? :o If you have more than twenty friends, well, you suck. :p hehe.

I give you!!! :o

This set is made up of 8 smaller couples/group sets plus a couple of various poses I threw in to fill it out. It's casual and fun, kinda sweet, a lot dorky and goofy like me. And, here's the kicker - it's mod/copy! :D The first time I've ever offered a couple/group pose set with copy perms! I figure it would be insane trying to edit a set this large and not have a backup copy at all times. The nice thing too is that you can rez it, move it around, delete a pose, copy a pose, and recreate a pretty much endless number of combinations and have several large group sets for any photo situation. ALSO....I priced it so that you are saving almost 50% over buying the smaller sets individually.

Here are the smaller sets, just incase you have no need for such a large group set (not all of us have that many friends, goodness! :o) - these are MOD/TRANS. Not copy.

Hopefully this will help with those holiday party photo needs! You can find them all at my main store right now, far wall to the right as you come in the doors. Have a safe and happy holiday season and a great new year!

New @ [LAP] - A Little Holiday Spirit

Shir Dryke of Ornamental Life sent out the word today about her storecards being slashed 50% and when I found out it was because she was trying to raise a little money to help out her RL situation ...I told her I'd make sure she got the money she needed. To help do that I've created this limited time holiday treat. It's very simple but it's fairly priced all proceeds are going to Shir, so it's for a good purpose.

The chair is mod/copy, 10 prims, scripted - no poseballs. It functions much like my halloween punkins did...actually exactly like they did, except this is just a one pose prop. It's meant for two people, a male and female. Further instructions are included with purchase. It's only 100L. I put it outside on the steps, so it's easy to find! Thank you everyone, very much.

Long Awkward Pose TP

Happy Holidays Everyone!

New Pose Set @ [LAP]

I know I've been quiet for a couple of months now. I've been working very hard, I can assure you and here's just a sampling of what's in store in the coming weeks. I really hope you guys like this new set. I decided to step outside my comfort zone a bit and see what I could create, I really think it came out decently. I'm sorta proud of this one. I hope you like it too!

I decided to call this set 'sexy beast' because it really captures the sex appeal in the poses and body movement. I think it strikes a bit of a high-fashion style pose also. It's a bit of combined elements really.

Oh and I really must thank one of my idols, the godmother of poses in SL, Luth! This set is really very much dedicated to her. She bestowed some wisdom on me recently and I hope I've made her proud!

Anyway, enjoy and have a great weekend, I'll have more releases for you all very soon I promise!

I <3 Noobles

I've had these in my shop for months now, but never really made a big fuss about them. They were actually quite popular (IMs capped every day delivering these suckers) with just 3 stands, 1 ground sit and 1 object sit. I decided recently that I was not entirely satisfied, even as a freebie, with how they were, and I cursed myself for sending a whole new generation of noobs and alts out there in the world with a shoddy representation of an AO. I am sorry. Forgive me! :p So, I went in, jammed it full of poses to give it what you see in the photos. These are still only available to new residents of 30 days or less, but hopefully they'll be a bit more acceptable, quality-wise. It's still very very basic, but it beats the default, I suppose.

I know some people would like to have this, that are not new residents, so as a hint, they will be available for a limited time during a certain hunt, that will be the ONLY time EVER that you can get these without being a total noob.

Happy Sunday! :)

Ghost Busters Grid-Wide Hunt Gift @ [LAP]

This is my offering to the hunt. It starts the 24th, I'll be sending out the full details to my group as soon as they are given to me, so you might want to stop by my main store and join up!

The Magic of Oz - Sim Opening and Hunt!

Magic of Oz SIM OPENING!

My friends Candy and Malk have created one of the most awesome sims I've seen in a long while in SL. I was so thrilled to be able to get a peek and not only that, but help in the process and contribute my tiny bit of creativity to it. When they asked me if I wanted to prepare an item for their grand-opening hunt, I said - sure! But when I was later asked to help supply poses here and there around the sim for photo ops, I was honored!

So for this weekend only you get the chance to snatch up around 30 poses I created for their sim, they won't be in any nice neat sets like I normally do, and they'll probably seem a little random, just keep in mind they're not Oz inspired, they're Magic of Oz SIM inspired. ;) I even dabbled in animating...heaven forbid. :o Yeah, go get them and laugh at me.

This is the hunt of hunts! Even if the sim alone wasn't enough to provoke you to stop what you are doing and visit, the hunt should! They have gifts from all of your favorites - Silent Sparrow, Miriel, Schadenfreude, The Stringer Mausoleum, Juicy, MnM Design, Designs of Darkness, and the list goes on and on. Not just that, but some of the designers who have moved into the shops sprinkled in munchkin land and the witch's castle have also created new releases themed around Magic of Oz sim, which can be purchased!

You will be hunting for red slippers, about the size of a normal shoe in SL. They will rez randomly and move every five minutes, but they're not that hard to find, trust me! They will rez just about anywhere and everywhere - so make sure to look high and low! I've been told that throughout the day some GREEN slippers will also be placed around the sim (these will not disappear) with even more prizes and gifts to be had! The hunt goes on for this weekend only so please make sure to stop in before it's too late - you'll be kicking yourself if you don't!

Hurry Down the Yellowbrick Road!

New Pose Set @ [LAP] - Red Carpet Diva

Got a new set for you that I just put out at the main store. This one was semi-sorta inspired by my recent visits to 7 Ultra Lounge - or at least that's where the initial idea bloomed. The poses themselves are inspired by all of those lovely celebrity ladies and their red carpet moments. I've picked poses from the old hollywood classic group, some from the younger, fresh and perky celebrities, and some from those curvier, saucy ladies who like to heat it up for the camera. You'll be happy to know some of these stands look great in an AO too. Very subtle yet ...sleek, is the word that comes to mind.


The current [LAP] Flickr group photo contest is about to come to an end and the new 'halloween' themed contest will begin in October, if you aren't already involved, you should be! Join the group and start submitting ...the prize is a 1200L giftcard to [LAP]! :o Check the group discussion for more details!

That's all. Have a great weekend!

Two New Pose Sets @ [LAP]

Hi everyone! Finally got them on the wall at the mainstore. Whew. I'm sloooow today! :p Two new pose sets for you today, with more to come soon I hope!

Eye Candy - My newest jewelry pose set, a sequel to the 'Material Girl' set of old. My friend Candy who is a jeweler has been the monkey on my back for this set for awhile, so this goes out to her! :D I tried to make them more fluid and versatile so that they can be used for more than just jewelry. Here is the vendor image, but please check out the photos my friend Berry did (caution nudity), because my vendor-style really doesn't do them justice.


Rawkstar - This is a set I started awhile back but never finished because I hate producing poses that I cannot provide a prop for. But some of my live musician friends in SL kept pestering me until I completed it.


I've also started a new contest for the [LAP] flickr group, theme is 'underwater' and prize is a 1200L giftcard to [LAP]! :o Check the group for more details!

That's all. Have a great weekend!

Coming soon to [LAP]...

I've been a busy girl. Sorta. Here's another set of teasing images for you, this time from my newest 'jewelry pose' set. I asked my friend Berry to take the pictures for me and she did an amazing job - squishing and resizing and adjusting so they don't hog the feed really doesn't do them justice, so please go here to view them in full: here

I think the thing that I like most about this new series is that it's rather versatile. My previous jewelry set is very one dimensional and not so fluid - I wanted to correct that with this new set. I wanted it to not only be ideal for jewelry but also great for fashion shots, shoes, or whatever it is that you might want to use them for. I hope I've accomplished that!

Again, this is just a small tease to prevent spamming the feed, if you want to see the full collection, just visit Berry's flickr stream!

I will have these out in the main store this weekend, probably as early as tomorrow - I'm also planning to release the rockstar set from the previous tease, and I have a few more sets in the works that I might be able to finish up and box for a weekend release too....if I can stop plurking (thanks Phoenix! :p).


If you aren't a member of my in-world update group, you should join so that you are updated as soon as these come out and are available!

In other [LAP] news:

* My giftcards are now fully automated and work with pretty much the entire store. Now you can use them not just for full sets, but single poses too! Buy them for yourself, buy them for a friend, especially great for the holiday season coming up and all those October-boom rezday babies in SL! ;)

* I spent most of last week listing every single [LAP] product on not just SLX but OnRez as well. I'm trying to make sure that all of my customers are happy, not just some, so hopefully these multiple purchasing options will help. :)

[LAP] @ SLX:
[LAP] @ OnRez:

* I've been running flickr contests for my flickr group for awhile now. We're currently starting a new theme that runs until the 1st of October. If you are interested in more ways to get [LAP] poses you should join up and share your photos, winner receives a 1200L giftcard to [LAP]!


And here you go, a new release available in store NOW!

You will also find that I've put out a bunch of the poop hunt items for sale, so if you missed the hunt, you can now purchase them at the main store!

That's all from me. Have a great weekend everyone!

Free Stuffs, More Hunts & Teasers

The (greatest!) poop hunt is long gone and over, if you missed it - I'm sorry! Some of the things in the hunt will be released at normal prices in the shop, some will be put out as ever-long freebies in the store, and some will never see the light of day again. Poo.

But I haven't been idle in the meantime - I've got a ton of stuff I'm working on, almost complete is a new "rawkstar" set ...this one is going out to all my buddies who are live performers in SL. Here are some teaser images for you, keep in mind it won't be released for some time and might be released under a different name. (you can click the images for a full size preview)

There's also a hunt going on at HoH/Bewitched...I have a shop at the HoH mall and I'm very grateful to Shel and Fall for allowing me to take up space there, so trying once again to be a good neighbor, I am participating in the daisy pickin' hunt going on, starting today! Because it seemed fitting, I've put my 'Summer Daze' pose set into my daisy - all you have to do is find it and the set is your's free! You can find the full details on the hunt over here.

And lastly, my buddy Pill (aka: Pie) has her own sim called Zombie Love. She invited me over to have a little spot on her island and tonight at 7pm SLT she is having an opening party. I'm not alone over there - you can find ~momo~, Katat0nik, Mia, PillBugg's, and more! Tonight there will be a live music show and some freebies out just for visitors to Zombie Love...I've whipped up a set of zombie poses just for you, I know that ~momo~ has out the cutest suit, and Pill put together some adorable bangles! Some extremely creepy pictures for you of my zombie poses (yes my zombie wears pornstars):

(oops, sorry for breaking the feed, bad code! :o Just click here to see zombie pics instead)

Okay, that's all from me, I'll have some new releases next week, so keep an eye out for those. Until then, have fun, have a great weekend! <3 Dove

Ew, You Stink!

So, maybe the hunt has started, maybe not. I'm not telling. Here are some more teasers for you...just a few more of the most AWESOME free shit to be had during my great poop hunt (join the group for info!)! :D These and much much more to be scooped!

For the larger sizes of the images, you can check my flickr stream. Have a great weekend everyone!

It's coming......

Just five more minutes baby, let me get mine and then you can get yours! So yeah, another day, another round of teasers for the adoring masses (please don't hit me, I bruise easily). I've got more coming up later today and who knows, maybe the MOST AMAZING HUNT YOU'VE EVER PARTICIPATED IN ...will be starting? Could be. Maybe not. Only my in-world SOM group will know for sure. :p And those of you with inside sources, your days are numbered. Muahaha.

Sorry, it's early, I'm feeling frisky. Anyway, on with the show, here are some more of the great prizes you can find during my crappy poopy hunt which will be starting very very soon. I told you I'd have group stuffs and boy stuffs, well here you go.
(I'm posting these small so they don't eat up the feed, if you want to see the full versions just check out my flickr stream).

Remember, I love you, and you love me, that's why this continued game of teasing and chasing is okay. Right?

More Teasers...

I'm sure you guys hate me posting up teaser stuff on the's really rather pointless, except that I like to imagine you guys with your panties all in a wad. :D So yeah, here's some more teaser stuff for the CRAPPIEST HUNT EVAR - coming to an [LAP] near you SOON! The only way you are getting the full details is if you join my in-world group (kiosk on the steps at the main store, totally free, doesn't use a group slot, just do it!) or if you have a friend who has a big mouth. :p I'll post some more teaser pics tomorrow after I finish taking the bazillion snapshots for these darn things! :o Prepare yer pooper scoopers, this mess is gonna take awhile to clean up.

Remember, there will be couples poses, group poses, female poses, male poses and I've even decided to throw in, at the last minute, a new chubby set! :O I have lost my ever-loving mind! WOO!

Okay. Goodnight.

StoreCards & Another Freebie Hunt

Oh my gosh, this is the month of freebies and hunts. :o I'm taking a vacation soon! :p

Okay, first things, I have a new storecard system, yay! It's totally automated, no more waiting, no more hassle...just purchase a card from the vendor in the shop, and spendspendspend, or gift it to someone! That simple. If you were a member of my update group, you could have been one of the lucky ONE HUNDRED people who received a FREE 400L giftcard last night as a kickstart to the new system! I keep tellin' should join.


And for newest news! I have a shop at the Starlust motel and those crazy kids have decided to throw together a panty hunt. :D How fun is that? Since I can't make clothing all...I decided to make some goofy panty poses to stick in my golden clam (oh yeah, just go to Floyd or Lloyd sims and hunt for golden clams). This is what you'll get from my clam:

First up we have the 'crack attack' pose, for all those times when you need to dig yer panties out of yer crack. Second the 'omg my panties are so rawk, look at them!' pose, for uh..when you ..feel like ..bending over and showing everyone your panties? And last the 'holy package of panties' pose, the great 'V' of divine justice...I bet it could be unisex. heh.

Also, all the underpants used in that photo are part of the hunt too, courtesy Apatia and HoH! Woo! So what the hell are you waiting for, get thee arses to the Starlust Motel and dig them clams!

Sunday, August 10, 2008


I hate hunts. I hate them so much that I participate in every one that I have time for. I suffer the cluttered inventory of hunt madness along with the rest of you. So, because I had been promising my group a ton of freebies for weeks, rather than being cool and nice and just "dumping" them in a box and "dumping" them on my group neatly....I decided to be a brat, stick the freebies in piles of sculpted poop goodness and scatter them all over my main store location. WOO!

I'm not sure when yet, but soon, as in days from now. I'm not sure how many shit piles you need to find, but it will be many. It will include couples, groups, female and male poses (no boys, I won't forget you!). Yay! :D The only way you are going to know all the details is if you join my update group - it's free, doesn't use one of your group slots and you'll get a bunch of free crap from me! And by crap I really mean awesometastic amazingest stuff ever!

Stay tuned for more droppings....(I really must pun the hell out of this crap thing as long as I possibly can, sorry)...

New Pose Sets - Sugar & Spice @ [LAP]

Long Awkward Pose In-World

Finally got these two sets out at my Main Shop location and I'll be rolling them out to my satellites soon.

These sets were inspired by Avril and Taylor for a bit of punky and sweet. I named them Sugar and Spice. This is my first time using a lot of hand morphs with the poses, I normally avoid it because SL isn't reliable with hand morphs - but I think these came out okay. I would recommend using an emoter HUD with them for added fun!

If you haven't yet you should join my flickr group, see what others are doing with [LAP] poses, get sneak peeks of new poses and participate in fun bi-monthly contests!

Hope you all are having a great weekend! <3 Dove

Shit I knew I would forget something. Credits for outfits:

Spice Set: Top - MichaMi, Pants & hair - amerie's Naughty, Shoes - Sculpties Up In Here, Skin - Gala, Tattoos - artilleri.

Sugar Set: Top & Gloves - ZX, Skirt & hair & leggings - amerie's Naughty, Shoes - Sculpties Up in Here, Skin - Gala.

Friday, July 25, 2008

Sugar & Spice Coming Soon to [LAP]

I'm having a bit of delay getting my couples and group sets boxed up, so in the meantime I'm working on singles pose sets and freebies for my group. Yay! Here's a peek at some poses from two sets I've just finished up last night: Sugar & Spice. Inspired by that punkyfresh Avril and sugarsweet Taylor. These will be coming to my shop this weekend sometime. <3

Some credits since I'm horrible about not mentioning them: Top - MichaMi, Pants & hair - amerie's Naughty, Shoes - Sculpties Up In Here, Skin - Gala, Tattoos - artilleri.

Important Shop Info - Pose Replacements!

If you have purchased pose sets from me between June 20th and July 17th, please read on!

In my sets I included two versions of my poses. One set is more AO-friendly, but the ones labeled PR4 are the ones I am replacing at your request. I goofed up and left the heads loose on them, and the photographers and bloggers out there have been heard. :p I reupped them ...once again...and now the PR4 (priority level 4) poses are now completely static. No loose heads. Hooray!

So if you would like a replacement set, please get your transaction information to me in a notecard and I will get it back to you as soon as I can. Sasy posted this helpful information that I'm going to paste here for those who don't know how to find transaction information or what to do with it:

The page to go to on the second life website is:

what you need to paste will be the whole transaction, something like this:

Date:time of transaction
Object Sale
Description: something something
Region: a place
Destination: a person

You will find your transaction details by looking on the day, using the dropdown, that you purchased the items on and highlight by running your mouse over the transaction, then if using windows CTRL C, then CTRL V into a notecard in world, then send to Dove Swanson.

Sorry for the hassle everyone, and yes, I have lots of newness coming to you guys very soon, as well as some freeness for my group (you should join it if you're not in it!). Thanks!

Non-Fashion, Spank me.

FIXED!!!! A very helpful forum user was able to give me a tip. Apparently the newer models come with bundled (forced) security software. So, if you come across this problem, make sure to uninstall the 'edata security' software. That's all I did and it fixed it. I'm only bumping this to make sure people know and just incase anyone else has this problem you guys will know what to tell them. Thank you everyone!

I know this is poor form to post something non-fashion related on the feed, and doing so with my shop blog. :o Whoops. But this is important to me.

Some of you might know that I've been struggling with a dying computer for weeks now. I finally decided to call it quits with the old beast and so I got a new computer wednesday. It's lovely, it works wonderfully. I didn't actually try uploading anything until Sunday, and that's when I ran into a problem. For some reason I can't upload - at all. I have no upload dialog menu. I crash if I try to force it to find a file. I crash crash crash. I've done everything I can think of - uninstalled, reinstalled, different accounts, different viewers. Today a friend pointed me in the direction of a JIRA that is my problem exactly. Apparently it's a new model Acer issue, as that's what my computer is too.

If any of you want to take a look at the symptoms in the JIRA comments and give me ideas or suggestions - I'd love that also. But if you could just take a moment to go there and simply vote on the issue, I'd appreciate that muchly.

This is rather might not seem like much, but without the ability to upload - LAP comes to a grinding halt. I'm going to steal a computer from my mother or brother to try and use for uploading in the meantime, but that will be such a tedious process I can probably assure you that I won't accomplish much at all. So, for those of you who care about this at all, and my sanity, please vote!

Thank you! <3 Dove

New poses @ [LAP] & Fashion Expo 08!

Long Awkward Pose In-World

So, I have some newness for you but you need to read carefully so there's no confusion.

I am participating in the Fashion Expo 08 RFL event this year. It opens tomorrow and as my offering I'm bringing with me THREE new sets (all for the ladies, sorry guys!) plus an extremely limited edition set that is exclusive to and going bye-bye with this event.

So, before I give you the photos of the new sets, just know that you WILL NOT find these in my store right now, they're going to be debuting at the Fashion Expo tomorrow. I really hope you guys will find time to come by and participate in a great cause! There's so many amazing designers involved in this. Not to mention an auction and fashion show, raffle prizes and so much more! If the lag is too killer, at least find a kiosk and make a donation! <3

Direct TP to [LAP] @ Fash Expo 08

(also, a side note, you will not be able to buy single poses during this event, because of the way the RFL vendors operate, I was unable to create a split script for my pose you can only demo and buy the full sets - sorry!)

This set is ONLY at the fashion expo and will only EVER be available in-world from June 5th-9th. It is a Fashion Expo RFL exclusive and limited edition. If you want this set, you WILL have to visit the event and purchase it from the RFL vendor. It will be GONE forever after the 9th.

I am a huge Sex and the City fangirl. I can't wait to go see the movie and because that has been on my mind I thought it fitting to do a "tribute" set, all of these poses were inspired by the cast/characters of the show!

I don't know why, but I've wanted to make a flapper-girl inspired set for awhile. So, finally I got around to it. I'm sure they can be used for other purposes but that was my original inspiration. ;)

A sequel to the Aerial Assault set, I had so much fun with that set that I wanted to make another. The thing that I found most fun about these is that while photoing them for the vendor ad, if you come at these from several angles with your camera, they really have such multiple uses and change 'attitude' so much.

There you have it - remember, these will be out tomorrow at the fash expo! I hope to see you guys there!
