#2 – I love PLASTIK especially over the last few months. As a guy, I overlook her nails but when I do see them I think the designs are rather cute, quirky and fun and no one else in Second Life offers nails like that. PLASTIK is a great brand because she branches out to ALL content types and in many color options: nails, skins, jewelry etc. and my personal favorite lately … her home decor.
Just saw her Moon bistro set for Shiny Shabby released yesterday and it is fantastic! https://gyazo.com/d1e0c5af7c7bce7c3cbd77e445dee86c Love every other decor piece she is pushing out.
Dear PLASTIK Owner, not sure how you got all these haters but please keep doing you and keep blessing Second Life with your breath of fresh air creativity. These SL Secrets serve as free advertisement and I think will just drive new clients to your amazing creations ♥
6. One of the most unique avatars I have ever seen in SL, you don’t have to be “cute” to be GORGEOUS! NEVER CHANGE, your avatar is PERFECTION! From a HUGE fan! <3
#2 The owner of plastik at the time of those nail polishes was recovering from surgery and yet still put SOMETHING out for a event she committed to creating for. She could have been like other stores and just not did anything and dropped out without saying anything to the event owner, but no, she still made and put something out after being in the hospital.
Talking about wasting spaces at events? Should be talking about Body Factory with their prefabs, maybe Etham who puts out the most basic, ill fitting shirt every event, or how about 90% of every subscription box events?
I take that back – their advertising looks like the hair in #11 smeared on a sign.**
So because they were sick, we should be happy that they still released something? If the owner of a company in RL was ill and released a shit product – would you be happy? No.
These designers are so determined to make a quick buck, they’ll enter any garbage into these events and the event directors just let them. Sick or not – release quality products or don’t release at all. Nail appliers are fine for marketplace or your in-world store.. not for a featured event.
Where is quality control? Don’t be butthurt when someone leaves a shitty review on your crap item because they expected more from an event.
[Sorry for the double post – your excuses for this consistently shitty designer made me feel the urge to rant a little}
We aren’t talking about subscription boxes though, there are people discussing cutie loot and such a few posts down if you wanna complain about those.
Nail appliers don’t belong in events – it’s a slap in the face to those that actually take the time to create and rig mesh clothing, hair and accessories. There are events that are more suited for Plastik – like Anybody, Fantasy Collective, and whatever applier events are going on now (couldn’t tell you, I don’t wear appliers because it’s not 2015 anymore).
She’s not the same level as Pixicat, Ison, Candydoll, Foxes, etc. so why is she invited to C88 and Uber? It’s not about providing variety to their selection because there’s a lot better fantasy genre’d designers that could be invited instead of her. It’s simply because her brand is old as dirt (which is obvious by it’s advertising and products) and because she must give a pretty good ass-lickin’.
I honestly dont see how you dislike their adds, they look fine to me but w/e that is difference in opinion, tho there are tons worse in events.
the designers who are just wanting a quick buck are the ones in shit like luxe box who put out below average shit, and dumb fucks still buy it for the one “okay” item in the box… that will be released in a different color in a month btw.
Just because you dislike nail appliers doesnt mean they are garbage, thats like saying the people who actually make nail polish in irl are lazy, and on top of that, nail appliers are far from the worst shit put out at these events.
Body factory gets into fucking everything with recolored prefabs that he sells no copy no mod, Idk who even buys azoury’s wierd ass stuff but half the time its copyrighted shit, including stuff from the ghost in the shell movie, soul and fallen gods make god awful skins that are so pixelated and singled toned that its like you were dumped in a bucket of low rez paint.
At some point people have to take responsibility for their own laziness without using excuses. Everyone’s got excuses, for example:
I’m an asshole in virtual-secrets comments because my grandfather fell out of a tree and landed on the family dog, instantly killing both of them.
Does that make me being an asshole right? No. Just like someone “recovering from surgery” (sure is a lot of that going around at the moment). The difference between me and a lazy designer entering events is that while I’m an asshole in virtual-secrets comments as a result of my “excuse”, she is releasing PURCHASABLE ITEMS to the public and EXPECTING THEM TO SPEND THEIR MONEY ON THEM as a result of hers.
Fabricated surgery or otherwise you can clearly see that they’re lazy as well as you jumped to the aid of the designer. Don’t be fucking lazy. Who knows why they’re seemingly invited to every event with bullshit like this – I still want to know whose dick they’re sucking.
LOL… she’s been putting out shitty nail appliers at almost every event for so long now. That surgery must’ve been done on the fucking moon.
Don’t make excuses for shitty work by lazy artists. She’s not on the same level as most of the other creators at these events that she’s invited to….even her advertising looks like smeared shit on a sign and it uglys up the whole event.
For those that want a bit of further entertainment.
This person clearly uses all their various maladies for attention grabbing purposes.
girlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll yassssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss !!!!!! .<
Surely someone with a leg infection could ONLY “sit back”?
Maybe they won’t stand for it.
Hey #3, when the text is shitty and low-resolution, zooming in on it makes it blurry and guess what- still unreadable. No one read your dumb shit two weeks ago, because it was illegible.
Yes to #13!
#5 Just say no to these pedo kids already!! The lot of them have all mental issues
No way, someone that plays as a toddler is totally well-adjusted!
No issues there are all, no sir.
Doncha know? All kids are pedos, all furries are deviant, all women are men, all men are cheating on their wives, and all wives are sluts. Yeah, I don’t get it either. People shove sex into everything. The idea that something isn’t sexual is alien to these people. It’s like they live in this SL bubble where everything is sexual and drama.
Really dude. It’s roleplay. If you’re fine with people who RP as toilet slaves and Gorean slaves and “forced breeding” futa and don’t think that’s mentally ill, a person reliving their childhood should be perfectly good and tame in your eyes. Do you think anyone who is an animal like a horse in SL is into bestiality too?
Yeah, didn’t think so.
Do we really have to rehash the same tired line about how ‘All kids are pedos’ every week? That shit is older than the shoe whore drama and even more fake. Find something new to bitch about.
Cutie loot… What’s going on with that, anyone know? I was hoping there’d be more on here for that.
Not really sure, but I saw on facebook that the sugar garden was putting out their stuff from Cutie Loot and apparently others are going to be doing it also.
So not know on Chloe, but Ever has a man alt also.
Here’s the newest news on that topic
Is Chloe an alt of Ever Amaranthine as she’s done a disappearing act?
@ #2 Sick of this shit put something worthy in these events, this is such a waste of space.
I just want to know whose dick he/she/they/xey (I wouldn’t dare assume their gender) is sucking to get in.
So many of these events now clearly don’t care about quality to the point it’s a popularity contest or a friendship circle.
Plastik is fucking terrible – worse than even Quirky – and yet consistently shows up with their lazy bullshit to events.
Yes, but it’s ‘something to do’ & pure addiction.
Maybe would be better to some new breedable, games to appear instead 1001 event.
Honestly events are ruining SL. I feel like SL has become a giant shopping event now because of them. No wonder designers just pump out uninspired crap. How could you do much else when your having to do hundreds of events each month. Honestly pissing and moaning about this shit is pointless anyway. You could always save yourself sometime and…I don’t know…just not buy it.
#2 i think she was recovering from a major surgery why do people care like i thhink theyre cute?
idk there are too many events and ppl cant be creative anymore its ruining sl but the other stuff she does is cute
like idk all of the themes and stuff seem to make designers in a box instead of lettign creativity fly
I don’t agree.
I think something happened with events and creating for them. Like this formula really washed out?
It seems that totally uninspiring for creators, things are terribly repetitive and boring.
Creators just trying to keep with deadlines.
At this point this system like really killed creativity completely.
#11 Really? OK, so the style is different, it’s quirky, odd, lighthearted, but do you really have to stoop to such a level? Do you know that this designer has had death threats because of Hair Fair? No. Did you know that this designer has been lambasted for apparent “cultural appropriation” by bloggers who have no clue about the history of this well established hair designer, who has been one of the driving forces behind dreads and braids even existing on the grid? No, I doubt you did, because she’s kept all that bottled up. She’s had to sit there with all this on her shoulders, because she dares to be different and all you can do is stick turd emojis onto a picture and think you’re clever. No.
Tbh I’m not a fan of this particular hair but no designer can get everything right Everytime. I do generally like this person’s hair though. It’s different and dreads are great for post apocolyptic looks. Honestly she should just ignore the nastiness. Some people like to tear others down. I do think they have some valid points in that it’s shape is not the best piled up on top of the head like that. It, to me, comes off a bit formless and lifeless if that make sense. I can see where they’re getting the comparison from but it’s a little to harsh of a way to put it imo. I do hope she continues to make dreads and unique hairstyles like that though as overall I do enjoy her work.
Oh wow.. now that you explained it for us.. OMG she’s so brave!!!
I take back my previous comment.. I’d rather wear literal shit on my head than this hair.
FFS, keep medical issues off second life and who is calling you in the hospital. You are probably the type who is constant on voice with kids crying in the backgroud. Second life is a game not fecking Match.com
As a white person (are we announcing our race AND our medical issues on virtual-secrets now? Is that a thing?): Does one need to know a designer’s history in order to have an opinion that something looks terrible?
I look at that hair and think it looks like booty. I don’t give a shit about the storied past of the designer, I just know it looks silly.
Race does matter because there’s not a lot of good ethnic hairs on SL…. DUH
Just because YOU do not like it doesn’t mean it looks like shit. Dreads is a cultural hairstyle and maybe it’s just not for you.
In RL dreads tend to look like that. And they look really good.
Never seen big thick dreads like that before? I have. Dreads can be thin thick curled straight twisted put in up-dos.
Soooo if you know nothing about African American types of hairs maybe you should shut up and stick to shopping at Truth.
you just answered your own question 😉
You’re the one who shared your experiences with Fibro when you weren’t asked to, right? I believe you opened your comment with that.
These people are getting called out for a reason. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, you have your thoughts and I have mine. Just like you think it’s silly to post snarky comments, I think it’s silly to announce in a comments section that you have x/y/z illness. As far as both of us are concerned, we’re right.
After looking at your comments, do you just come on here to make bitchy, snarky remarks for your Sunday kicks? I don’t really see you offering much else, not even your name. So basically, cowardly , bitchy, snarky and pointless comments. smh
I have not seen the hair in world but if it looks anything at all like the picture then it does indeed look like shit.
I’d rather wear the turd emojis then that hair.
As a black person and a friend to this creator Thank you for defending her. The person who made that post is nasty and mean hearted. Kal has always been making these beautiful styles and providing variety to second life. If a hair is not for you then stay away. I love her styles and I support her brand and stores. I am glad she did this so we had options and I hope Kal continues the great work. Its alot of things thats not for me on SL. This hair was not for that mean spirited poster. They should mind their owm business instead of continuing to spit vitrol. So thank you Kals Friend Im her friend too and im team dreads!
*eating snacks* I came for the cutie loot gossip and comments. I was hoping it make the secrets!
#08 – This jacket has been out for ages, just reapplied for events (apparently also a subscription box as well then). This shop does refresh their stuff a lot and well, most people don’t like those boxes so it wouldn’t be sensible to do exclusives for those.
Also, the Swagbag is defunct, so who cares if it was supposed to be exclusive.
Del only loves me and he already knows about me so, quit being nosey! P.s Wavie is my secret lover shhh
Cutie Loot is the true definition of a moneygrab.
Boycott this person’s “entrepreneurial” endeavors and we’ll all be better off for it.
As someone who suffers from two chronic life threatening diseases I would like to ask for a little compassion for the woman with fibromyalgia (hope i spelled that right). Chronic illnesses tend to isolate you from “normal” people. Your own normal life was suddenly taken from you and you are left with a life that now revolves around your disease. It can get very lonely for some, especially if they can no longer work. Most people just want to be loved and that’s what it sounds like she wants. I lose patience too so just don’t hang around her or close the box. Making these secrets will devastate her in a way you won’t get. Most of us question why we go on and what the point is and things like these secrets could easily send her over the edge. Just walk away when she starts to bug you, please.
As for people keeping illnesses out of SL, those posts from her look like Facebook posts to me.
Does that mean we can’t talk about how we feel on our OWN social media?
My lord people….just get off her accounts and don’t look at it if you don’t like it.
Stop trolling her stuff and you won’t know about it.
Get over yourselves. People need support. It is hard to get through health issues on your own, trust me I know.
When I lost a member of my family, I couldn’t have gone on without the support of my Second Life family and friends.
If you don’t wanna know, you don’t have to look!
To Kylyra Destiny, if you are a REAL person, your name is not your damn avatar name. And if you want people not to hide beyond Anonymity, then again, use you REAL name , not your video game avatars lol. Facebook has been deleting second life accounts since they fall under fake accounts. Grow up and stop living your life on the computer!!
So just because it is SL that means we are not still people behind the avatars with feelings and issues? SL is a social media platform, and for a lot of people that play SL and have SL FB accounts they actually treat people like human beings. What are you, a sack of potatoes? No? Then how about you use that thing you have called a heart and have some compassion for people behind the avatar who actually have difficult times in their lives and need support. But I see you are just a little troll that hides behind anonymity.
Sure if she has her own REAL PERSON facebook account, not a cartoon avatar!!
Usually the people with fibro/RA or arthritis bring it on themself by being OVERWEIGHT. A girl I know- only in her 20s has RA and is on 12 different pills. The doctor told her to lose weight but instead she takes her car with her handicapped sticker right thru the McDonalds drive thru almost every damn day. Stop the chronic complaining and make a plan to live a healthy life.
Mn hmn and I know just as many people who are skinny with both those issues so take your “FAT IZ THE PROBLUM” crap elsewhere.
As someone who doesn’t talk about any illnesses they suffer from online: shhhhh.
Her/His name is Matilda Soon….and he is wonderful ! I love his avatar, not your typical cookie cutter, over breasted, slutty woman…this avatar oozes originality and character !….to many pretty people in world as it is.
Love her AV…. she is original and fabulous. A fun flickr to follow 🙂 She is definitely more cute than most!
Matilda’s pics are well thought out. Beautifully executed and her photoshop is popping. I hate that people aren’t allowed to be different on second life without being judge. The blog isnt meant for the person posting the little ugly comment. So why dont you just unfollow her. Make your life great. I love it! I hope she keeps it up. I hope she keeps shining and it bothers you until you log off sl. Because evidently someone being unique makes you ANGRY. Big ups to the people who love her pics. I live for them!
I looked at that avatar and thought “what’s wrong with it??” I like it. Keep doing what you are doing whoever you are!
Agree, Matilda is a creative, fashionable and original avatar with great photography and styling. They also create some nice cosmetics and things. I love it when SL avatars are different and Matilda’s flickr is one of my favourites… the mean-hearted secret here is just agist.
All of that, AND I can pretty much guarantee that Matilda doesn’t give a rat’s ass about being cute.
#6 Id say thats accurat.
I know her personally and she is the most adorable person ever. She couldn’t even harm a fly. Also she is one of the most recognizable and creative looking avatars in SL. Who posted that secret is a major idiot.
I’m just glad old, decrepit Misandre found Second Life.
In fact, my inspiration is Bette Davis and Miss Havisham. All my love for you, kid. See you later alligator!
My bad y’all, my bad – that one’s on me. Melisandre.
Still looks like a boot tho.
I think you mean Melisandre? Wouldn’t want you to misspell your petty insults *wink*
I don’t know #6 personally (if this secret is in reference to her personality), and with that said, I think she looks adorable with a very unique look. Cookie Cutter avatars get pretty boring. 🙂
17: So do some adult avatars. I’ve seen more than my fair share of massive shelfass and boobs which should have their own gravitational field, and that’s to say nothing of the downturned lips and squinty eye trend, the ponyriders, and the people who wear mesh heads/bodies with mismatched skin tones. Picking on all child avatars because of a couple funny looking ones is stupid, especially when SL is filled with such a diverse variety of ugly in every age group.
A store I frequent on my adult avatar has two “greeters” with size ZZZ breasts, wobbling asses with cheeks the size of two beach balls each, and faces that make Bratz dolls look cute and they are almost always dressed in sheer lingerie. Since TD, SMB, and the other new toddler body and all the mesh TD heads, I haven’t seen any kids that look anything close to how bad adult avatars like that do. Not even the kids in your secret, #17
That’s true. But still, child avatars are fucking weird in general. Ugly ones are even worse.
I mean, that’s your opinion and you’re entitled to it, but I think it’s important to respect the dedication and art which has gone into making child avatars look like they do today. SL’s avatars were never made with child shapes in mind. Early kid avs looked like aliens or little people. What you see today is massive leaps ahead of even a few years back. Hell, didn’t they make the first popular mesh body? Toddleedoo came before Maitreya or Slink had their bodies out, iirc. The kid community has done incredible work getting around LL’s creation system to make semi-realistic child avatars.
Hey, don’t get me wrong! I think most people in Second Life look ridiculous. Big titties are the constant to the point where if you have a semi-normal size they look small. When the world decided to collectively ejaculate over the concept of a “thigh gap” SL followed suit – but everyone still wants their “curvy” hips so it all looks fucked up and disproportionate. Every guy is chiseled out of marble and has an impossibly large elephant dingdong.
I agree, 90% of avatars look dumb.
Doesn’t take away the fact that kid avatars are ugly and weird.
Whoever made that secret about Quirky needs to get a life. Obviously she’s making what sells, and why does it bother you so much? If you don’t like what she makes then don’t fucking buy it.
If this is the type of shit that you’re into buying, that’s on you… but she didn’t even make the make-up appliers for this garbage. She literally makes nothing but the same straps unless she can piggy back with Atomic.
That’s all that was the case here at Epiphany, Atomic wasn’t here to help so she was forced to poop out some harnesses that you sheep ate up.
Oooh boy. That one I’d never seen.
That’s atrocious, and she/he/it should be ashamed.
Yay another garter/collar/harness!
I just think Quirky doesn’t know how to make actual clothing unless she collabs with a real designer :p
She’s actually made clothes plenty of times without collabing so you might want to try a different avenue of argument.
As for “lazyassquirky,” I find the comment laughable considering the harness is rigged just fine; I’ve worn it around plenty so it sounds to me like you just have a personal problem with the creator and are grasping at straws to find flaws with the fact that she enjoys making collars/harnesses/garters and continues to make them – her textures have gotten 100x better and her items are great. Again I ask, if you don’t like what she’s making, then why the fuck do you even care? Don’t want a harness? Then don’t fucking buy it. It’s a pretty simple concept – for someone who’s calling everyone else dumb I’d thought you’d at least grasp that but apparently I am mistaken, my bad! 😉
Dear Quirky defender,
The shit that this lazy designer sells is boring, generic and poorly rigged.
How many times do we need to see the same harnesses again and again and again and (I could go on)…
To be fair, you’re right. If people are buying it then she’s in the right. But that doesn’t say much for the idiots that do so, y’all are fucking dumb.
Someone Who DOESN’T Buy The Same Old Shit Again and Again
I found some clothing on MP Quirky made.
Looks like quirky makes nail appliers too…
I have no opinion about this store tbh, I have bought from them a few times never disappointed but I do not normally actively seek the store out either. I wanted to show how quickly you can find other items by quirky that do not contain harnesses.
Now this is more like it! Lol
