as you can see this post is the beginning of a new colum or maybe it's just a try, during my holidays i found many small things on SD which i thought could be interesting and instead of posting many small posts i just collect all those tiny pieces and put them together in one big post ... yes i'm so smart it hurts doesn't it. i hope you enjoy it and who knows maybe between all those little pieces you'll find something you have been overlooking.
1. DIY stars
for me stardesign clothes are a complicated topic as they often look ... hm how can i put this nicely ... crappy! but recently i found two dolls who really know how to make a difference in the field of stardesign:
RedLadyCoolGirl is the second account of a.d.a.1234 another wonderful doll which already has been featured on this blog. on RedLadyCoolGirls account you can purchase the more-than-just-rad banana prints which seems to be inspired by ANDY WARHOLs cover design of the velvet underground and nico record. she always comes along with new color combinations which is a wonderful idea as you can buy lets say 4 banana prints each one in a different kind of color and hang them up togethere in your medolls suit which surley will look fierce! besides those absolut cool prints you can also buy nice looking band shirts (which are absolutly necessary if you wanne achieve a realistic soft grunge look) shirts you wont find at the starplaza.
degrade has a bunch of soft grunge inspired desgins she puts on sale at her bazaar. they can be combined in a more post-punk-new-york kind of way or in a teenwitch-white-magic kind of way. nevermind which look you prefer you always end up looking edgy and of course different.
so if you want to support some SD original desginer just visit those two talented dolls and buy some of there designs i mean why spend money on horrible and childish looking clothes (as if the upcoming valintines day has permitted SD to kill us all with a huge amount of pink cheesy ugly looking clothes) if you can buy some really nice garments which not only have a deeper meaning but also helps you to stand out of the a shallow looking doll crowd.
2. a question of morals
when i read through my favourite sd blogs i stumbeld uppon a smal post written by sparklewand12 owner of STARDOLLLOOKBOOK. the post was about the well known stardoll magazine version of VOGUE and its creator jelinna. you may read the post first before you continue reading this. just click here.
by now the whole discussen has cooled down but i still think its important to tell you guys about the whole thing. i really like jelinnas work. she is extremly talanted but does that give her the right to take money for an appaerance in one of her magazines? i think it's not fair because modeling schouldn't be about money it should be about beatuy and how unique you're doll is. of course in the real world if you want to be a model you have to pay your agnency so they can take care of you but you can't pay any real and honest agnecy to be a model if you haven't the potential and if they do you probably have been a victim of a shitty agency which never ever will help you to make it.
3. starplaza treasures
i thought it would be a nice idea to present you some wonderful treasures i found at the plaza. sometimes it's not so easy to notice the little things SD is selling in the plaza.
those wonderful heels (just recognized the fact that i failed at the easiest task ... putting on heels on your doll -.- ) can be found in the current RIO collection. i noticed that i often ignore SD shoes (shame on me). i think the reason is that those shoes are often so small that the nice details (like the golden triangles you can see on these beautys) simply can be overlooked.
this hair accesory which i found at the NELLY.COM shop is actually based on a hairpiece made by RODARTE (which by the way is one of my alltime favourite fashion lables)
here you can see the original RODARTE version of the piece. if you haven't bought it yet now is the time it really is a wonderful item and can be used espacially for teen witch and soft grunge (btw if i write soft grunge one more time i will kick slap myself unconscious) looks.
while i wrote this post alot has happend on SD (new antidote, new PPQ and royalty store) so some more sepcified posts will be uploaded soon (but promise nothing ... ).
