#7 for you .. you can have my mamas numba on speed dial anytime baby..thank you for having me, bows to the secret society. oxo
Empire is meshed by Beyonce Zane. Beyonce Zane has been on and under so many labels now because of her nasty attitude. If she would spend more time learning to textures maybe she would have something. She is to busy using people for their knowledge and then moving on and talking bad about them. Empire’s items will suck until she pulls her head and ego out of her ass and takes the time to learn to texture.
#6 well 799 for a pair of shoes in 12 colors its totally lame. I prefer Phedora and Moda and Bens Boutique ! In Phedora for a pair of shoes fully customizable and a hud with 30 colors you pay 399 and they are top quality! Moda offers also great price 199 for a pair of shoes and a really good hud. Bens Boutique too!
I wonder if #6 remembers back in the days before sale events, gacha, and the general proliferation of the ‘want shit, don’t want to pay what it’s worth’ ethos what shoes used to cost? $L700 for a single color way would not have been out of the ordinary. Some of the more established brands _still_ charge in that neighborhood for a good boot, especially now that they have to rig for multiple bodies.
And now there are brands like Empire, Reign, and the like who give you a whole fatpack for that price or lower? Good god. What more could you want? Oh, right. You want a cheaper price. How are they supposed to break even for their time that way?
Hell, I remember when Moody was a phenom, the ridiculous amount people paid for those shoes, 799 for a choice of colors and this price is usually for a thigh high pair not just a regular shoe is heaven in comparison. I still laugh at shoe places who want 300 or 400 a pair for ONE color.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled drama!
You’ve proven nothing, except for perhaps the fact that Hooked on Phonics didn’t work for you.
These are similar shoes, all based on similar real world designs. They’re not identical, and each of them has differences in style depending on which shoe maker put them out.
nah dude, Empire is not even original to sell shoes for dis high cost. It’s a copy store cause You can buy the same shoes from other stores which released dem first lolz and way more cheaper right, Nice shoes but still a copy tho..
@ KorgJuice It is not unheard of people making same/similar styles in SL even in RL. The fact that EVERYTHING in SL is somehow RL inspired there will be some of the same/similar shit put out. You really have way to much time on your hands unlike the designer you have your ass in a knot over, I am sure they are actually working on making new things. Why don’t you go learn how to mesh and texture and all that shit. Then you can show us all how it’s done. I would like to see what your brain shits out. I bet lots would have done it better and before you. Please if you’re thinking of telling me you do make things and blah blah blah. Post a link to your shit so we can have a look. I do doubt that will be the case because you spend all your time being a trolling cunt.
Are you actually fucking dumb?
First of all, some designers work months in advance. If there are slight coincidences between shoes, sometimes the person who released two days later actually made the shoes first.
Second of all, CREATORS USE REAL LIFE PHOTOS ALL THE TIME AS INSPIRSTION. Therefore, it’s incredibly likely that creators stumble upon the same real life shoes and create them.
At the end of the day, either know what you’re talking about or guess fucking what, DONT BUY IT. Clearly you don’t create and being some little whiney bitch on SL secrets really makes you big.
1) Could you teach me Gurl?
I can keep pasting 😉 and cause you are so curious , dont forget to check dates, need more girl? maybe nah! You know, Empire has good quality, but is just another one store runs out of imagination. bye felicia!
1. Is this English?
2. Please present evidence that Empire is making direct copies of their competitors shoes.
# 7 – asked yo mama!
When people in SL tell me they “fear logging in” to deal with a stalker….I assume they are either a noobie or emotionally unstable.
*Unfriend and BLOCK people. Learn to use your damn mute buttons.
*Hang out in “safer” places where you will not come across this person or these situations.
*Turn your bitch switch off about people coming on to you and making you uncomfortable. SL is a sexually charged place. If you don’t want to experience this, see the above tips.
*You may be a “kid” in SL, but act like a grown up with this stuff. Stop whining how people are not playing my YOUR rules. Protect yourself and be smart about it.
*Possibly examine yourself and see how you are contributing to your own drama.
Exactly, if this was legit they would just AR and mute the guy before warning their friends inworld, not send an illiterate postcard to a gossip site.
here is the persona dmitting to doing it, as u can see just up the top is the gayzo of the secret
i did ask for it to be taken down, as it untrue and full of lies,
Yanno, nothing invalidates a secret more than having ONE person trying to solidify it using multiple usernames.
Well from we understand this is a disgruntled ex turned SL stalker.
Oh, snap! What about Randy? He’d be the easiest prey!
I happen to love the fact that Empire and Phedora (maybe others?) sell you just the entire pack with all colors included. 700L is like what, $2? And, most of the packs aren’t even that expensive 499L and below. I feel it’s one hell of a deal, honestly. You can color customize every detail with every color to mach anything you wear. If you can’t afford them, don’t buy them. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a similar style for one single color cheaper at other designer’s stores. It’s SL after all.
They are not to die for. They are nice mesh badly textured, and Empire doesn’t even make them hersel or know anything about the mesh she releases.f If you like Walmart cheap fatpack shoes, buy one all get free, buy empire! I’d rather spend twice that or more on a Reign fatpack and get awesome quality than promoting some cunt that doesn’t even mesh. It’s an insult to real sl creators that actually work hard. No thanks.
“Whatever/Empire doesn’t really have a hand in any of her designs for Empie.” Actually, she does. She finds her inspiration and she has even created her own original shoes not from a RL reference. Fact of the matter is, a lot of designers use a RL reference, actually almost all, so some cross over will be expected.
“I find it interesting that she popped up with all these shoe designs that look SO SIMILAR to other creators” There are shoes REIGN has created that are similar to Empires AFTER Empire releases. Phedora too. There are similarities across ALL the top brands. Sometimes Empire releases first, sometimes she doesn’t, but it doesn’t mean she’s looking at people’s shit to copy their items.
Get your facts straight before talking shit about a brand you have no idea about.
Actually, to “hold the fucking phone,” when it comes to Reign, yes Illy does a lot of the texturing, but Kenadee has done a lot of texturing too. It’s not a “mesher and a texturer,” Kenadee and Illy work 100% together. Illy doesn’t have a hand in the mesh but Kenadee can do both. She is involved in every step.
Whatsherface from Whatever/Empire doesn’t really have a hand in any of her designs for Empire from what I have been told. And I find it interesting that she popped up with all these shoe designs that look SO SIMILAR to other creators, with a name “Empire” and a crown (hello, Reign knock off).
As for the actual secret, I understand both sides. It would be nice if I only had like 300L to my name to be able to purchase ONE shoe especially if I know I’m only ever going to wear black. Why can’t both options be available? Fatpack or nothing? What if I don’t have 700L to spend? The option should be there. The fatpack price is VERY generous- so keep it! Keep that fatpack at 799 and then offer individual options for 299… i guarantee you’re still going to sell more fatpacks, HOWEVER, you’ll also reach an audience/customer base of people who don’t have thousands of lindens to spend week to week and can still buy and love your designs. Seems like a simple cut and dry business practice to me.
nah dude, Empire is not even original to sell shoes for dis high cost. It’s a copy store cause You can buy the same shoes from other stores which released dem first lol, Nice shoes but still a copy tho..
The mesh is made by someone else, yes… and thats FINE. Reign doesn’t have the same texturer and mesher making a pair of shoes. There is a MESHER and then a TEXTURER. Just like 90% of ‘big’ stores are now paying other people to do their meshing and rigging. Her textures are FAR from shit, thats number one… Honestly, I’ll take an Empire Fatpack for a THIRD of the prices and walk around feeling like a bad bitch ANY DAY over paying 300-400L for a SINGLE color. It’s a matter of opinion. Theres no need to go ahead and shit on a store because you like another one better.
I agree with you 100%. I only buy shoes that have color change hud and Empire and Phedora shoes are to die for. And yea, if that person in the secret can’t afford it, then don’t get it. Chances are, there will be similar items in the color you want from other stores. I’ve always been skeptical when it comes to buying the fatpack but with $700L, it’s a bonus!There are some stores that sells fatpacks more than $700L. No one’s forcing you buy it anyways.
Apparently people don’t remember the days when some brands would cost 700L for ONE PAIR OF SHOES. ONE! One color, above the knee, 700L. Now, you can get one pair of shoes in 15-20 colors for the SAME price.
Logic is lost upon most people in SL. They can’t remember how things were yesterday let alone a few months ago.
The secrets this week are lamesauce.
Yeah get on over to the whisperer.wordpress.com it’s all kicking off about Neva and Keon’s lack of receipts to show where the charity money went.
That website looks dumb as hell.
ERMM, so because she has bad grammar she cant be preyed on? Considering this is not the first time i have heard these accusations i will be viewing them as factual. it takes a lot to stand up to these people. (i am guessing your all family and friends.)
How difficult is it to grasp that someone who basically is considered his ENEMY (for lack of a better term), not his family member and not his friend, is even backing the fact that the secret is a lie?
I will be the FIRST person to back up any truthful claims regarding the type of person Hanibex is. Sorry, but your multiple claims under various alias’ (multiple personality disorder, much?) regarding him being into any form of pedophilia are falsified claims.
Again, Hani is a lot of things, but a sexual predator is not one of them.
And no, your piss-poor grammar makes it incredibly difficult to take you seriously because when I engage a conversation with an adult, I expect them to type/speak with some semblance of intelligence that shows you at least have an IQ larger than your shoe size.
Yea i agree, There was something not right how he acted towards me very suspect.
Yeah I HIGHLY doubt that… And like I said, I’d LOVE to see ANY logs of this sort of behavior. I WELCOME them.
Yea and your his family for all we know your involved. I heard this from heritage a while ago i diffident believe it until now.
-gives lourdes cookies and candy-
Add Ben to the list with Joy and Carl.
#2&7…..I understand that words are hard, but Grammar is quite important when you expect people to take you seriously. Just fucking saying.
As for #2 – I don’t even like Hani and even I can tell you that that secret is a bunch of bullshit. He is many, many things – but a child avi fetish person is NOT one of those things. Next time, work on your terrible English skills and try to make a more believable and true secret.
What a total sanctimonious cunt you are
“Flew off the handle “LMAO. You still think what’s written here is actually serious you said fuck. Oh no I said fuck am I flying off the handle. And my raging out of control, lol fool. I can’t insult you, you’re too thick, you don’t get that you look like a fuk wit.
Considering how you flew off the handle the other week merely because a commenter pointed out that you like to throw little bitch-fits, I’d say that you do rage when people say things to/about you on the internet.
As for the first half of your terrible little comment of banter, I say again: If you’re going to insult me, do so properly
Lol almightynot your pseudo psychology is pathetic. Quite the narcissist want you. Smug old turd. OMG I’m raging someone on the Internet said something about me omg lol
Good try, but it’s not slipping.
I’m also not posting with the intent of making you rage, it’s a mere reply. The fact that you continuously go to such great lengths out of nowhere to assure everyone that you aren’t angry leads me to believe otherwise. Typically, unangered people don’t need to randomly validate their lack of anger (just an FYI). Plus, the way you get so triggered whenever people mention you lying contradicts your little claim as well. Please, do keep telling everyone how you aren’t angry to disguise how you’re actually seething.
Oh and almightyNOT your grammar is slipping. Be careful with them stones warthog
Bahahaha nothing you say could make me rage sugar plum. I’m so sad for you, you take this forum sooooo seriously, you lose ya donuts over it lol. Winding you up is such fun when stuck in gridlock LMAO at you.
If anyone here is retarded, it’s you. You clearly lick windows as a profession.
If people speaking eloquently back to you is too much, then I assure you, I’m not the one with mental setbacks. If you’re going to insult me, at least do so properly.
Secondly, just last week and the week before, you went off raging because people called out your behavior. If you don’t remember that, then again – those are your mental health issues and no one else’s.
I intentionally write ludicrous lies just to wind you the fuck up. It works every time, and then I laughed myself silly.
AlmightNOT do show where I’ve ever been offended by anything written on the site lol. You your the one who needs to write a thesis on everything you retard
That comes from you – the butt hurt baby backed bitch that was offended because you got caught in lies by multiple people (myself included) in recent weeks.
Run along, trash. I already told you to before. This is for the big kids.
Oooh sweet baby Jesus in the sky, I feel so sad for you.
Wait, let me guess…you could truly care less. Or, perhaps you couldn’t care less? Which makes more sense to you. GAH LOGIC. WHAT IS LIFE? And seriously, I don’t need to type anything more than a few lines to make my point: you’re absolutely ridiculous, and it’s hilarious.
Huh ignore the sanctimonious twat. It’s a sad fucker with nothing better to do, it needs to get a life. At the moment it’s life is scrutinising a gossip site for a fantasy world, and pulling to pieces everyone’s grammar lol winning
You can say I look ridiculous, yet there’s a few people who have already figured out who I am and messaged me laughing at you. It’s amusing to see how much you’re trying (and apparently failing, given the responses I’ve gotten from at least 4 people in world laughing at you). Really, it is. Like I said earlier – at least you’re an idiot with ambition, bub.
I don’t doubt that there are people more intelligent than I am. You are not one of those people, though (sorry to burst your little bubble). Considering the fact that you don’t know how to read and properly interpret comments, that much has been made clear. You can continue to display further stupidity and continue to work on responding with double the effort in your comments, though I must warn you that the group of us will just merely laugh you off.
It’s quite funny how that works, isn’t it? You try to tell me that there are people more intelligent than myself who will laugh at me, yet you’re the lesser intelligent one being laughed at in this current conversation. Right from the start, you displayed sheer stupidity in not being able to read what is said. All you have done thus far is reinforce that display.
Well see, unlike you, I’m secure with my intelligence and my education. Your comments don’t touch me. ::shrug:: Would you like to criticize my grammar? Go ahead. I couldn’t care less (see what I did there?). You went to college? Congratulations. Do we need to discuss it further so that you feel validated? How’s that liberal arts degree treating you? How about me? Would you like to criticize my intelligence based on a few comments on a website? Whatever makes you feel better, ace. I mean it. I seriously will. I’ll validate you all night… ’til The Walking Dead comes on. Sorry, priorities. Now, I’m going to wrap it up with a little advice (TWD, you understand (if you’re cool)): Perhaps you should stop taking yourself so seriously (you look a little ridiculous). Stop trying so desperately to prove that you’re smarter than everyone around you (you sometimes aren’t). Secure, intelligent people neither feel the need to prove themselves, nor do they tear other people down. Read that sentence back to yourself, slowwwwly. Reading for comprehension is the key here. You good? Ok? Moving on. Listen. I know I threw a massive truckload of passive aggressive comments and sarcasm at you, probably a little condescension too (variety is the spice of life, after all), but now I’m genuinely concerned that you actually believe that what you’ve said thus far is how intelligent people behave…ehhhhh it’s not. There’s another word for those kinds of people. I’ll let you use your imagination here. But seriously, don’t be that girl/guy. People who are actually more intelligent than you (I know, that’s hard for you to conceptualize) will unabashedly laugh at you…then it gets awkward. Think on it. Write it down. Whatever works. PEACE! P.S. I don’t think we can be best friends anymore… Read more »
Well of course you’d think it’s hilarious – anything that’s been said to you has been above your comprehension level.
…wait, time out. Someone tries to warn people that a guy (whether you know him or not) is a pedo and you can’t take them seriously because of their poor grammar? I’m trying to say this as nicely as possible…but you seriously re-evaluate your priorities. I mean, I don’t automatically buy people’s stories on here either, but come on. Grammar trumps possible felony? YAH OK.
Where do you draw the line D:
Does grammar trump school bus fires?
Person: “Yo guys that there skool bus is a’burnin down the way! Send halp! Tha babies is in thar!”
You: Sorry, can’t. Your grammar is atrocious and I just can’t take you seriously.
You’d be piss-poor if you had a dollar for every improperly used hyphen. Go ahead, run to google and look up when it’s okay and when it’s not okay to use a hyphen. I’ll wait. If you’re going to attempt to consider yourself knowledgeable with grammar, you may want to re-read your first few comments where you displayed that you don’t know shit about it.
If you cannot handle “paragraphs” in a discussion, then perhaps you should run back to kindergarten where things are far simpler for your minuscule mentality. Typically, when people are discussing something online, especially when they know how to read/type above a third grade level, they will type in those paragraphs that you’re bitching about. It’s a bit of formality. Then again, if you truly knew anything when it came to grammar, you would know why someone actually would be typing things out fully when they’re talking to you online. There’s a huge difference between defensiveness and a display of actual intelligence in typing. Your original comments, which showed somewhat of a heated, agitated response, are defensive. Someone typing in paragraphs rather than random jumbled sentences thrown together jumping from point to point isn’t defensive – it’s typing in an educated manner. Oh wait, there’s another hyphen! Shame!
*waits for your comment bitching about another hyphen that you don’t know and understand how to use*
I swear if I had a dollar for every time you slap a hyphen in there, I’d be a millionaire. Who taught you that? They should be slapped too. But regardless, isn’t it just the BEST when in a discussion, the person who claims you’re being defensive is actually the one typing verbose paragraphs dripping with defensiveness and you’re just sitting here cringe-giggling at them taking the bait over and over? The BEST.
BLEH. Sorry, sarcasm is how I deal with those whom I just can’t take seriously. Condescending hypocrites, for example. Coughs. Are we still besties?
I don’t need to google anything, nor back-track over what I say. I know what I say and I do this crazy thing called “proof-reading” before I enter my comments. I also know grammar quite well as it was my strongest subject in school even in elementary school, so it’s no wonder that’s what I majored in. I know what is and is not allowed.
You can throw a semi-colon in all you like – if it were to be correctly used in my comments anywhere, it would have been. 😉
Thanks for trying, though!
I do adore how much effort you’re putting in to try sounding a bit more intelligent in comparison to your original comments. It’s cute as all hell that you’re trying now. I applaud you for stepping up and displaying that there’s a chance you didn’t eat paint chips as a child. I’m quite impressed, to be honest. Most idiots would have continued drawling on without trying to sound like less of an idiot. I can at least say that you’re an idiot with ambition. You’ve got something going for you.
Here’s looking at you, kid. ;3
I’m actually seriously amused at the visual of you scowering your comments looking for grammatical mistakes. You’re so mad! So serious! How dare I take notice that you are a flawed vessel! GASP!
Now be honest, okay? How quickly did you rage-Google “when do I use a hyphen in a sentence?” I bet you were super dooper fast! Probably the fastest around! Spectacular!
^ Oh, here’s a semi colon as you don’t seem to have any over there. God, I’m such a giver! I think that makes us best friends now. Sharing is caring!
I could truly care less if you post a reaction gif – to each their own (oh wait, was that a hyphen that you think doesn’t belong there? Oops.). However, your response and the extent of your defensiveness shows how offended you are. It’s very laughable, really.
You clearly don’t comprehend emphasis on specific words. Nor do you understand what run-on sentences actually are (but that’s beside the point). Now, I wouldn’t expect you to truly know anything about how punctuation (i.e.: hyphens) would correctly be used, but I assure you – my comments haven’t abused them. Perhaps if you were educated, you’d know that. As far as those so-called “run-on sentences” go, you clearly don’t know what a run-on sentence is. A sentence that is broken up by commas or semi-colons to continue onward with the same point in a sentence that cannot be broken up into multiple sentences properly is not a run-on sentence.
And example of a run-on sentence would be this:
You don’t know what a run-on sentence is and you’re terrible at trying to reiterate your points but I’ll entertain your uneducated ass anyway just for the laughs.
I’m offended because I questioned your logic? The well-educated are more deserving of, and more easily given serious consideration when bad things happen to them? Gee wiz. What a spectacular mentality that is! Well, while it’s honestly news to me, I’ll take your word for it. You seem trustworthy.
Side note: GOD! I have a reaction .gif that’s painfully perfect for the look on my face right now, but I’ll save it. Trust me, though, it’s a good one.
Now, in all seriousness, the multiple comments made by the same IP ordeal is actually pretty funny. Way to throw a great big wrench into the gear of your credibility, guy.
Thanks for the laughs! Hugs-n-kisses. Enjoy your Sunday.
::whispers:: I find your run-on sentences, gratuitously capitalized letters, and flagrant hyphen abuses sexy as you-know-what.
Again, I know the guy and can’t stand him and yet even I know the secret is bullshit.
I did not say that poor grammar is cause for complete disbelief – I said that it makes it VERY difficult to take the person seriously when they clearly cannot grasp how to speak properly. Although, looking at your own comments, it’s no wonder you would take offense to that statement. If the shoe fits, lace it up and wear it. Sorry to tell you, but when you want ADULTS to take you seriously, displaying some sort of basic intelligence is a factor to how they perceive you.
I do think it’s absolutely hysterical that even the site admin has come forward and pointed out that all the “people” who posted on here trying to back up the secret have all actually been the SAME person under the SAME IP address.
Quite pitiful, if you ask me.
Ahhh I see. The good ol’ grammar diss! Solid stuff. Feebly redirecting people’s attention using the most played-out retaliation known to the human race: since 2001. I feel you.
-bows out- lol
Yea and i happen to know this one is true, and i am sure shes just trying to get what has happened out there because looks like shes seriously outnumbered and being hated on for grammar. #slclich
Kanto and moonchild, same person. But possibly different from Joy, Carl and Ben.
ok they are the same person
If this was an actual accusation and she didn’t know the people she was defending and calling out, she wouldn’t be commenting on the grammar. But, because we KNOW that this is complete bullshit, and we aren’t taking it seriously at all, it’s more fun to get the poster frustrated as we make fun of his inability to write the English language. We’re not invalidating a claim because of grammar. We invalidating the claim because we know exactly who posted it, and because we have the logs and proof of his threat to do so. We’re just making fun of his craptastic spelling and grammar because we KNOW how angry it is making him that NO ONE is taking him seriously 🙂
Sorta OT: I often envy people who can afford mesh bodies and the clothes to go with them. Especially 700L+ fatpacks of shoes. I’m poor in real life with a low pay job (used to finance my schooling instead), so I rely on group gifts and freebies. I enjoy SL, and I sometimes feel like a loser for not having the most exciting and elaborate avatar on the grid.
Very rarely do I use RL cash to get something I like, and I don’t feel comfortable accepting gifts.
So, shoutout to all the designers who offer freebies of their products. I promise I’ll buy more from you as soon as I can!
Can you get in touch with me via the contact form. Someone wants to gift you something.
There is nothing to envy. I myself went through the poor years of working a low paying job while putting myself through school. For many who are on this path, its just a temporary thing. One day you will have more disposable income for the things you want. However, I still limit what I spend in SL. Most gachas are a huge money sink just to get one or 2 colors you want. I do yard sales or the marketplace. At one time I had no issue dropping $100 at each round of the arcade. Now I don’t spend a dime at any gatcha event.
I will say thought, mesh bodies are a one time investment that is worth it IMO. Its doubtful that they will be handed out as a freebie and most top stores only make for mesh bodies now.
Also… PLEASE mister Hani hater, show us LOGS of these SEXUAL advances. Lord knows we have the screen shots and logs of you threatening to make this secret you fucking cock head.
Yea he made me feel very uncomfortable when i met him. I belive.
Eh thats fine. Any idiot with a kindergarten diploma can see they’re the same person.
LOURDES MY LOVE. COMING IN CLUTCH <3
Hey, Lourdes… do me a solid, and let us know if they illiterate carl is also the person who posted the secret 😀 Because the spelling is about the same, and you know how much we LOVE when you call people out <3
We don’t have access to who uploaded that is truly anon. But the comments are not.
“Joy” and “Carl” are the same person.
Let me tell you something about Hanibex Cooper. Hani is an AMAZING person, who is NOT anything CLOSE to what this person is claiming, and anyone who knows him, knows that. He is an amazing father, an amazing friend, and an amazing human in general. The person who made this secret is a disgruntled and sad fuckboi of an ex boyfriend to one of his children who is on a fucking vendetta to ruin her life. Hani is NOT a perv, or anything of the sort. PS, Matt, you just opened pandoras fucking box… get ready for hell asshole
