Cubism for Photographers

As toddlers.. we played with blocks..
As teens... we played Tetris..
As adults... prims.

Cubism.. the next generation of photography equipment for SL.
8 different cubes, 3 step-like, 3 for walls, 2 half walls, heads unlocked for directional positioning (except for just a couple which HAD to be locked). Menu Driven, Adjustable posing, and Pose Memorization. Modifyable- (go ahead and change texture and shape), Copyable- (add and subtract, mix and match, grab a new copy cause SL ate your last one), Expandable- so you can grab new add-on packs to make your photo studio the one with most to choose from. Low prim =P.

There are several sets to choose from. Individual blocks (one person at a time), Combined blocks (1 or 2 people at a time), and a Quad version that will pose 1,2,3,or 4 models at once.(Great for group shots!) 72 new poses in all, unlimited posing possibilities.

Demos on display here:

Halloween AO's!

Bunches of crazy fun for Halloween!

FYI... I wore that ZombieAO outfit with the AO down to Maitreya with a friend the other day.. (cause I thought we were FO SHO going to be SL's next top models in those outfits!) .. but instead of our great welcoming, we were slapped completely randomly by a group of Portuguese speaking customers... that was SO much fun.. I highly recommend that AO now xD

Happy Halloween!

Love, Surrealia

Moved... Sale Continued..

Well.. to fill you all in.. The main reason I moved my store was because the sim owner that maintained my main store location, decided to sell his sim... with about 3 days notice (-_-) ...

So.. thinking I had a bit more time I put my sale up.. but today.. my old main store is gone. However, I thought this was a bit unfair to my weekend customers, so I'm going to continue the sale at the Jabberwocky location until Monday.

AND... I'm also putting my specialty AO's up 50% off also.. this includes:

Fairy AO, KungFu AO, Drama Queen AO, TeddyBear AO, Music Box Dancer AO as well as the Photographers Chaise, Stools, Dance and Asian Inspired Pose packs and the Big Girls Pose packs. Single poses aren't on sale- just the full sets.

<3 Surrealia

LM to the sale -->

On another note.. You should really all come down and check out what Jessica Ornitz has done to the East Side Dollhouse room on Jabberwocky where Silent Sparrow and Draconic Kiss' stores are located.. completely beautiful. Such a talented builder!!

Re: Pawns on Jabberwocky

I've had several requests from store owners to come to Jabberwocky. Let me say first, its really an honor to have all the stores there now, and to see how many people still have a little bit of fantastical vision within them reguarding Lewis Carroll and Alice. I'm sure Carroll would be pleased to know that his story is still celebrated today!

So.. I was thinking about the Pawns .. and how really important they are in the game of chess. Sure, the larger pieces are prominant and get the most moves.. but the pawns are the tricky little warriors standing proud willing to risk all for the team. When thinking about this in reguards to what I wanted to accomplish with them, it reminds me of the stores that aren't necessarily EGL/Alice related, but couldn't resist making something Alice-y! There are several designers who've made these type of items or want to make something special in the honor of Alice.

Right now I have SIX Pawns on above ground Jabberwocky. I do not plan at this time to add more. I would like specially designed items in these Pawns. All stores on Jabberwocky are free of rent.. however.. I worked hard to ensure uniquely themed quality designs there, so I'll be allowing these shops by application only.

Who can be considered?
1) Those who already have shown some interest in Alice by some sort of previous work OR
2)Those who can prove interest in wanting to contribute AND can show good work examples in their particular area of design. ex. Jewelers who want to design a particular Alice themed crown but haven't yet.
3) Those who are willing to update their works approx. 2 times per year. (This sim is built on honoring Carrolls inspiration, not just free advertising for your store!)

Joining Jabberwocky does NOT mean that you have to be an EGL dress designer (in fact I'd prefer you weren't since I already have several of those on sim).. skinners.. avatar designers.. partical makers... builders.. you're all welcome to apply! The more unique the better!

If you meet these requirements, please send me a notecard with your store name/contact info. Please include why you'd like to be added to Jabberwocky, and why you believe you qualify as well as any photo examples of your content work (and/or what you think you are wanting to design if you haven't any Alice type content so far).

I'll be accepting applications until July 31st and then announce those accepted. Please don't get angry if you don't get accepted! With only 6 pawns, I am forced to narrow it down to the best I can offer Alice appreciators when they come thru the sim. Good luck!

Big Update!


1st- 14 couples poses.. in 3 different choices!

The All About Us Collection is a set of 14 animated couples poses. Single couples pose ball sets are L300.

You can save by getting the full 14 pose collection (for over 50% off the individual price!) or a wearable HUD that allows you to take your poses with you anywhere you go. This is a non-sexual couples collection that makes hanging out under the virtual stars, or within a group of friends easy and still PG acceptable!

You can test all the poses here at my new store:

Or at my old store. (Building on the RIGHT side of lm)

#2 In my Jabberwocky store ONLY..

I have new ANIMATED versions of the LolitaAO, Hot StuffAO, and the KyootAO =D

AGAIN.. those newly updated AO's are ONLY at the Jabberwocky location at this time!

Also.. a another note.. when I posted my thank you's yesterday for all the help I received at Jabberwocky, I went and forgot to thank my partner! *facepalms* Thank you Faith Rosenberg for the endless hours upon hours, and days and days of your invaluable help to save my sanity while Jabberwocky was being built. I really can NOT thank you enough.

On July 4th, 1862 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, aka Lewis Carroll rowed along the Thames River with a little girl named Alice Liddell. In was in these afternoon hours that the story of Alice in Wonderland was born.

On July 4th, 1865 exactly 3 years from that afternoon, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was first published and released to the world.

Today, July 4th, 2008, 143 years later, Jabberwocky will be released unto the Second Life residents who still appreciate the visions of Wonderland that Carroll gave us all.

Jabberwocky is a unique island with 2 separate areas. Above ground, The Looking Glass Empire ruled by the stern Red Queen. And below ground, The Ruins of Wonderland, where the Royal Queen of Hearts has been laid to rest.

In keeping with tradition, Specially chosen EGL designers have been brought to the sim. Draconic Kiss, Silent Sparrow, Katat0nik, Edelweiss, Silver Rose, Red Queen Designs, and Violet Voltaire. (And The Loony Bin and Catnip as well because any real Alice fan knows how much she loved cats!)

Please join us at 2pm slt in celebrating Alice's Adventures today on Jabberwocky. Come explore the unfinished island, and come watch as it grows.

Special thank you's to Draconic Lioncourt, Chicanery Turnbull, Nectere Niven, and Raven Callisto for building/texturing and helping me realize my own visions for Jabberwocky. *Applauds* I couldn't have brought this to SL without you.

Stubborn AO Newly Updated!

Now Fully Animated instead of static poses. =D

Single Poses Available here:

Monday, June 16, 2008

Out With The Old...

And IN with the new! The original EmotiveAO is officially gone, off shelves, and deleted from inventory. But.. the new animated versions are up =D. The new versions are very subtly animated, small movements, breathing, natural. The individual AO's are $L650 (only 150 more for the animated version than the original) and the big 4 in 1 EmotiveAO is $L1800 (Only L300 more than the original and a savings of $L800 over buying each pack separately-which is actually a bigger savings than the original even =D )

This week in retirement, is my StubbornAO. Half off for the next week $L250!

AO Retirement Sale

In June 2007, I started making AO's for myself and friends for fun. I didn't know that a year later, I'd have a store full of them and be getting ready to open my own island. I've had a ton of fun along the way, and I hope to think I'm getting a bit better. That said, my first AO's were pretty much entirely static so I've decided to start retiring them and replacing them with animated versions. The first set to retire is my EmotiveAO line. This is a set of 4 AO's. Confident, Mellow, Emo, and Shy, along with the full EmotiveAO that contains all 4 will be set 50% off for the next week only. After that, I'll be deleting them forever and replacing them with a new and better version of these systems. To be clear, that will make the smaller single packs L250 per AO, and the full EmotiveAO version with all 4 packs L750. So if you haven't grabbed these yet, now is your chance for a big savings :D

Cuz Rhythm *is* a Dancer


I made this little video for the KoinUP Second Life Music Video Contest. I had so much fun making this with close friends in places around SL that I love and thought should get some notice. I know the music choice isn't everyones favorite, and its really not even my general genre lol, but, I hope it makes you smile. And it certainly made me want to film again.

Sims used: Silent, SiniStyle, Scion City, Koreshan.. and The Far Away (which should be its own sim!)
Dancers: Faith Rosenberg, Archus Brodie, Taien Foulon, and myself.

Only The Cool Kids Will Have This!

I was really fortunate to work with Chicanery Turnbull of Koreshan fame on this incredible slide he made. Finally, instead of just animating the way you stand I got to animate the way you play also. He didn't really have the room to display this kick ass creation, so I've put it up at my main store for everyone to come have a look at. And seriously, you should!

This would be an excellent addition to all the little urban playgrounds around SL- replacing the plain old slides with something new and original and creative and well.. its the best slide in SL. Even the sandbox loves it ^^

Come see!!

Drama Queen AO

Because I obviously overlooked the fact that some people might not only want but NEED this xDDD

Oh.. and its FREE til Monday!!! So come get it!

<3 Surr

/on drama

Some people will try anything to rip you off and then give you a bad name all at once. I love my customers, I try hard to keep them happy. So, this, just seems so uncalled for.

[15:16] Vyxxen Vale: Hello, I was buying animations in your store and it took my money and got no animations, the system delivered a message stating"we are unable to transfer the process is stale"
[15:17] Vyxxen Vale: I think you will see I have paid you 600 lindens and have received no animations
[15:20] Surrealia Anatine: ok well.. i only see 300.. and then i tried to refresh and the linden transaction page died and said its down for maintence :\ so i cant honestly do anything until it shows up. But if you want to tell me which animations you didn't get, i'll put in on a notecard and send them to you as soon as it shows up
[15:21] Vyxxen Vale: I bought 600....
[15:21] Vyxxen Vale: My money is gone
[15:21] Vyxxen Vale: no animations
[15:21] Surrealia Anatine: did you read what i wrote?
[15:22] Vyxxen Vale: Oh I read it and it sounds like a push off , check will be in the mail
[15:22] Vyxxen Vale: I bought and did nto receive
[15:22] Vyxxen Vale: ANA-BabyDoll4_chest
[15:22] Vyxxen Vale: ANA_BabyDoll1_HIP
[15:23] Vyxxen Vale: ANA_BabyDoll5_belly
[15:23] Vyxxen Vale: ANA_BabyDoll2_hip
[15:23] Vyxxen Vale: ANA_BabyDoll5_chest
[15:24] Vyxxen Vale: And that is all and still nothing in my invetory
[15:24] Surrealia Anatine: alright, well, despite your rudeness, i'll make a notecard and as soon as the linden transactions show up, i'll send them to you
[15:24] Surrealia Anatine: there is obviously something wrong with transactions in some areas, thats not my stores fault
[15:25] Vyxxen Vale: My rudeness, I run two sims, and have to refund or give customers their items to keep them coming back, i trust their word as they stand in my stores
[15:25] Vyxxen Vale: You tell me you will send them later
[15:25] Vyxxen Vale laughs
[15:26] Surrealia Anatine: then you should know all about how people need there transaction numbers. If you can see them, i'd be happy to send them to you. I can't for whatever reason with the Lindens. Its not that I dont want too.. its that I can't see the transactions.
[15:27] Vyxxen Vale: I do not look for transactions, I want happy customers, and I want them to return and buy more I do not make them wait when they spent their money
[15:27] Surrealia Anatine: well, i like happy customers too, and usually when linden labs go down they are much more understanding
[15:29] Vyxxen Vale: Usually a dealer when messaged as the person stands in their store on their animations block still waiting for something they bought, does nto hesitate to make sure they come back, but instead you act like i am some liar over a few animations and not give me the product i PAID for this is nto ebay with a three week shipping period
[15:31] Surrealia Anatine: and usually the transaction list doesn't go down so i never have to ask anyone to wait either. I'll be happy to send them as soon as its fixed.
[15:31] Vyxxen Vale: It is alright I will get on all of my characters and announce to my thousands of friends that you are a thief and will not give me 5 lousy animations because your a untrusting soul who thinks i am standing in your store for no reason at all
[15:32] Vyxxen Vale: Also I am a SL mentor i will be sure to tell those on helpers island not to frequent here
[15:32] Vyxxen Vale: I cannot believe the issues you have with giving a customer their product
[15:33] Vyxxen Vale: anyway you said you seen 300
[15:33] Surrealia Anatine: i think you're going unnecessarily overboard and being dramatic about this. You'll get your product, as soon as i can see that it was actually bought. I have lots of very happy customers who've had problems and they've always been very kind about transactions messing up
[15:33] Vyxxen Vale: Well then give me my three hundred so I can go elsewhere to a more developed dealer
[15:33] Vyxxen Vale: I do not like being called a thief
[15:34] Surrealia Anatine: no where did i call you a theif. not once. i only said i couldnt send anything until the transaction history shows back up.
[15:34] Vyxxen Vale: You are calling me a thief by not believeing me as a consumer standing in your store lady
[15:35] Vyxxen Vale: As you sit and assuredly hold my lindens
[15:35] Vyxxen Vale: Now A Refund , or better yet my product would be what I would deliver if I had a customer obviously upset by the way you are trying as a product dealer handling things
[15:37] Surrealia Anatine: the transaction list is back up, i still can only see 2 purchases. Maybe your list can show something different?
[15:37] Vyxxen Vale: Please give me my money
[15:38] Surrealia Anatine: you said the product is what you'd give? if you are a business owner, i dont see why you find it so difficult to just show me your transaction history and i'd send what youre missing right to you now?
[15:38] Vyxxen Vale: Listen I am done in your store and do not want your product whatever it is you see refund it
[15:38] Vyxxen Vale: I am done with dealing with you
[15:39] Surrealia Anatine: when the transaction list is fixed.. i will send you either the product immediately.
[15:40] Vyxxen Vale: There are other places to buy animations who willIt is fixed
[15:40] Vyxxen Vale: Send me my dam money
[15:40] Vyxxen Vale: I am reporting this
[15:40] Vyxxen Vale: [15:37] Surrealia Anatine: the transaction list is back up, i still can only see 2 purchases. Maybe your list can show something different?
[15:41] Surrealia Anatine: go ahead and report it, i haven't done anything wrong?
[15:41] Vyxxen Vale: You are that poor that you need my 600 lindens?
[15:41] Surrealia Anatine: well.. i certainly dont need your threats and harrassment.. and i'm sure that if youre a 'mentor' the lindens wont appreciate your attitude either
[15:41] Vyxxen Vale: Im sure they wont but at this point it does not matter as you are a thief
[15:42] Vyxxen Vale: Now whatever it is you have seen on your list please send me it
[15:42] Vyxxen Vale: No more of your untrusting mind needed
[15:42] Surrealia Anatine: what i see on my list, is that you bought 2 animations for 300.
[15:43] Vyxxen Vale: amen then send me 300 and i will be gone from this place
[15:43] Surrealia Anatine: alright then.

Did I send her the 300.. yes.. did anything beyond that ever show up in my transaction history, no... would she show me hers? .. no.. did she harass my customers?.. yes!

So, just in case someone wants to get ugly, let me just clear this nonsense up publicaly now. I would never treat my customers poorly or not send them their items, and also.. ugh wtf, why be like that? I guess I'm still just a noobie store owner and thought everyone is SL just wants to be honest. Shame on me.

/end drama

On a happy note.. I have sooooo much new stuff on its way for you all, I promise, its BIG so it takes awhile to make! xD

Color Yourself Infected

Silent part 1.

What the hell happened to this quiet little town??? Do you know?

Tuesday, January 1, 2008


You said you wanted more animated stands... your wish is granted xD A little bit sexy, a little bit natural, and a little bit flamboyant.. VixenAO is a combination of 5 animated stands and sits made to compliment the majority of poses for women in my store. Come buy the AO, or pick up the single poses to add into your already existing system :)

Happy New Year SL ^_^
