~The Spring Fling Collection~

Original Release: April 2007 I learn a lot every time I do a project, as that I tend to do things entirely different each time and am often forced into learning something new (or several new things) in order to turn my ideas into a reality. This project however, was a truly amazing learning experience for me.
I took to prim work from the start in SL, few things in this world bring me as much pleasure as torturing prims into doing my bidding. This set however, was a whole new ball game.
The original idea was simple, in theory. I wanted to do a tri-metal blend. I originally thought I'd do it using simple thin bands of metal sort of layered... but right from the start it didn't feel like enough. (shown on right: spring fling tri-metal belly dangle) It took me days upon days upon days to get the first success out of my experiments, fighting against unusually high lag at the time didn't much help, but the result was truly amazing. In the end I managed to twist the metals together for the effect I had envisioned in my mind.
(shown on left: spring fling tri-metal choker) That is not a texture folks, but the result of an incredibly stubborn woman and some greatly abused prims. Citrine seemed like the natural addition to this jewellery, fitting ever so nicely in with the theme and the twisted metal sun pendants. There were only seven pieces to the full jewellery set in the end, much smaller by comparison to any of my past projects, but the hours that went into creating them were astronomical.
Now, I couldn't have a true Spring Fling collection without clothing could I? Up to this point in time my dealings with Gimp and the clothing templates were minimal. Wait, more truthfully, my successes were minimal. (Shown on right: Spring fling dress in Wild Berry Net) The reason for that in part at least is that I had never truly set my focus on it. I was too busy beating prims into submission. Several hours and tension headaches later, I FINALLY figured out the elusive secret to the perfect shirt straps, and suddenly everything started to fall into place for me.
There are 15 variations of this outfit, each including tank, booty shorts, flex top and two crochet butterfly sweaters (one in white, one in black).
I have this weird compulsion to always do more. It tends to drive a lot of people close to me a little nutz, but I admit to having a hard time knowing when enough is enough. That may be the largest reason I have accumulated so much merchandise in such a short amount of time. When it came to this project, that held true once again, because I couldnt simply leave the outfits, ever so adorable as they were, without shoes. How would I ever find the perfect shoes to match???? Simple; I'd make about a billion pairs of them.
Ok, in the end there were atually only 30 pairs, and I ended up selling them two pairs in a box. Each set of two is made using a fabric matching one of the 15 spring fling outfits, and then overlayed with white lace and black lace (done to match the two crochet sweaters in each outfit). (shown above: spring fling sandals in Blue Rasberry)These shoes manage to do what so few shoes in Sl can claim to do; they actually make your feet look better rather then draw attention to the ugliness that is our AV feet. There are cute flex straps on the ankle bands to accompany the little prim rose that crowns them.
