Back in black...

Due to popular demand, I've gone back to the ESD03.2 and created the black version - now in-world, and yours for just 15L at Moonsong

Come get if you fancy... I'll get back to working on something new to me...

Until I eventually get it finished, or La Venta Eventa goes around,

No rest for the wicked - prototyping for LVE

La Venta Eventa hit me a week before I was expecting it to - fail...

Still, I've mentioned before that I'll be looking at my dreads soon, with the intention to replace them (AGAIN!) so I've been throwing a few texture tests together... and then I read she sheet and found myself with nothing to put out... so my texture test - the second one - went live under the name EDS03.2

There was supposed to be a fourth blonde, but they all looked brassy and horrible... Still working on it...

Well - this is is - the three test colors and from here I'll hit Max again and make some better sculpties. Watch this space... but please don't hold your breath for a 36 color release of this one... Available for the course of La Venta Eventa, although I might leave it up for a day or two seeing as I was so late to advertise it here...

Until next time,

Tasche Dash - Day 30 - Looks like we made it to the end...

You know... I sometimes live to regret being impulsive, and making snap decisions about things. Had I known this would take me around 200 hours to do I might have thought differently, what with everything else going on this month, but I got there... The final style is Vincent -

All in all, that makes fifteen mustaches, seven goatees, six full beards, a set of muttons and some whiskers... thirty facial hairstyles, thirty blog posts (28 of them on time... blush) and a serious extension to the beards wing at -dDx-... I hope there's something for you!

I reckon I may be taking a break for a few days, so until I get back, probably with some dreads, I'd imagine, be safe!

Until next time,

Tasche Dash - Day 29 - Dundundundun Der Der DUH, Der der DUH, der der DUH...

OK... the penultimate one for you all now... It's a rebuild of a -dD- stalwart in the form of Kerry:

Retextured, improved sculptie beads... Just generally a better job this time.

Anyway - That's today's... tomorrows is the last effectively, but so that you can have a stab at it early, it is out and available now... I'll blog it tomorrow though. ;)

Until then,


P.S. In other beard related news I'm sorry to have to report that the Burns store has massively downsized, pending a refit on the remaining 512m parcel. My landlord of four and a half years (and more) is selling up his mainland plots, and gave me first refusal to buy the remnants of the store to keep it going; but the cost of doing so would have upped my tier to way more than the store was returning - I'm sorry I had to let it go, but there you are.

Apologies I didn't provide you all with more warning; but I had 24 hours to make my decision - and that was it, I'm afraid. A small store still stands, but it will not be by any stretch large enough to support -dD- styles; as each vendor is 46 prims - just too much for a space with 117 total.

Tasche Dash - Day 28 - Salsa Verdi

Winding up now... as of writing this I've actually built all the releases - because yes, I have been running this by the seat of my pants. I only decided to start work on this on the 26th of October... so thirty-two builds later (I ditched two for completely different reasons) and so far, twenty eight releases later I'm finally winding it down, and have every intention to go down with a heavy cold on December the first... Still... Nearly finished NaNoWriMo as well... *fnar*

Still style 28 - Giuseppe - a rather traditional full beard, with a sculpted mustache...

Nice eh?

Anyway... Just two more to tint, box and ship out... I'll let you in on one being a pointed goatee, the other being a rebuild of a popular -dD- standby...

Until tomorrow,

Tasche Dash - Day 27 - Wave goodbye to Sunny - Say hello to Klaus

OK... started off thinking 'I know... I'll make a simple long goatee or something' at ten this morning... eventually, after several hours and some genuine moments of 'WHY!?', I came up with this beast...

Klaus - the second biggest beard in the -dDx- range, only toppled by Thor. To be fair, I really kinda like it for what it is now it's done.

OOH - Competition time! This is a 'blog only' one... First person to IM me, Kallisti Burns, inworld with the origin of the quote in the title gets the complete Klaus - and Thor - free... ;)

We're 90% of the way there now... :S

Until tomorrow,

Tasche Dash - Day 26 - The return of the legend

The original of this style was created in the early days of 2008 - and each and every time I tried to get rid of it there was a backlash - quite simply it showed its age because - well - I wasn't that great a builder back then.

Even so, the Tasche in question gave rise to it's own inworld owners' club... on seing that, I felt I had no choice but to resurrect and rebuilt - BANDITO:

It's all there - the volume, the drop below the chin, the long fluffy bits - but this time the lines are smooth, textures are better and overall it's... well... Just look at it... :))

In other news, this weekend I'm participating in the Euphoria Black Friday sale with a double pack of Lotta and Hustle for just 50L and you can also find Charlie and Stampede in double packs for 90L at Men's Select on Fantasia... here are some samples:

Until tomorrow,

Tasche Dash - Day 25 - Splitting the difference

Today we have a large forked beard with bead details - unscripted, but wholly modifiable if you fancy recoloring the ends... ;)

This is Uthar:

Something smaller tomorrow... ;)

Until next time,


Thursday, 24 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 24 - Less is more

Announcing Gomez - a fine pencil mustache - by request!

There's still time to get your requests in should you fancy one being made - just IM me inworld and I'll see what I can pull off.

Until next time,


Tasche Dash - Day 23 - Late again... *fail*

Sorry - this was my bad... put it out fifteen hours ago then got caught up in some RL...

Marti's now live!

I *promise* I'll blog on time tomorrow...

Until then,


Wednesday, 23 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 22 - Disorder! Disorder! Disorder!

Oh fail... late with the entry until I figure out how to backdate - Serj out today!

Ah well... another update later today, I guess!

Until then,


Monday, 21 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 21 - Pierce spear and ingest...

Part of the point of the Tasche dash is to reinvent some old lines, create a range of stock so that the ancient, decrepit and generally lame can be removed - there - I said it... but on occasion, someone still asks for an old style that's unavailable.

One of those such long gone ones was Forkboy - a goatee with two braids in the bottom. I've had a handful of people inquire about it so I figure, what they hey... new Forkboy:

Until tomorrow...

Tasche Dash - Day 20 - Surrealism FTW!

Late one today - admittedly - RL has been playing a big part this weekend - mores the point I've been trying to claw a little back after a frenetic months to date for numerous reasons - also trying to claw back the word count on the novel as I'm actually behind for once... :S

Anyway - Salvadore!

Hercule on steroids... here it is folks...

Thinking maybe another big beard on the morrow... ;)

Until then,


Saturday, 19 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 19 - Oldschooling it...

OK, I admit this is fairly low prim, but hey - sometimes you have to... ;)


Likely to be similar tomorrow, as I have a fair whack to do in RL - But Monday should be something fun!

Until next time,


Friday, 18 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 18 - It takes chops...

Another request - this time for a new large set of muttons - Sure! This is Agnew:

It's been a while since I had a set in the main store... That's resolved now!

Until next time,


Thursday, 17 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 17 - One for the few

This one was suggested by Madagascar Few - hence the name... ;)

Fun, funky, and as a first for my 'tasches - flexi in places... Worth a look if you fancy running a Fu Man Chu tip...

Until tomorrow, when I promise to put my shirt back on... *blush*


Wednesday, 16 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 16 - By Thor's Beard!

Finally, the big one's done!

Another 'tasche tomorrow!

Until then,


Tuesday, 15 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 15 - Slight glitch

SL prevented me from bringing the 'big' one to life that I wanted for today, but I am able to offer this pencil mustache:

Ah well... more tomorrow,


Monday, 14 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 14 - Less is More

Today's one... A tiny 'Zorro' style mustache in the form of Vega:

Out now... and tomorrow marks half way - I'll be seeing it in with a bang, methinks..!

Until then,


Sunday, 13 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 13 - The practical cat

Change of plan - and as a Plurk friend pointed out, whiskers are mustaches... therefore, I get to call this a 'tasche Dash thing under that caveat... Macavity:

Something different for tomorrow... going to have to decide on what I fancy making... :S

Until tomorrow,


Saturday, 12 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 12 - Humming like a dynamo

Bring it - it's long overdue that I had a Frank Zappa tribute beard instore... so here it is...

And that puts us 40% of the way through the Tasche Dash... *phew*

Still got a couple in reserve... ;)

Until tomorrow,


Friday, 11 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 11 - Another knotty problem

Day eleven, and another braid - this time a solo tasche. Definitely a little on the outlandish side, but certainly with its uses... Lars!

More tomorrow... and I'd be happy to hear any suggestions, of course... ;)

Until next time,


Thursday, 10 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 10 - Horseshoes have got to be tossed...

Another tasche for you today - this is the horseshoe shaped Alistair:

Next one'll be out in the early hours (SLT) of tomorrow, rather than mid afternoon, as I have NaNoWriMo related business to attend to right now...Should you be that way inclined, look me up on the site - I'm Little Miss Discord (unsurprisingly ;)

Until tomorrow,


Wednesday, 9 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 9 - Under pressure

RL and SL workloads are pressing right now... along with the novel... but... here's today's tasche - Farroukh

Tasche Dash - Day 8 - OK... another non-tasche

Meet Andy - a Van Dyke style goatee...

More tomorrow!


Monday, 7 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 7 - Bitter and twisted

Nothing says -dDx- like the braids, right? And -dD- sold way more beards than anything else... yet, oddly, there's never been a wholly braided beard on the shelves of -dDx-... UNTIL NOW! Meet Hagbard...

246 prims of mental beardiness... and currently, two thirds off retail price until December 1st... get in quick!

Until tomorrow,


Sunday, 6 November 2011

Tasche dash - Day 6 - Making a point

Low slung pointed mustache... why not? Raleigh:

So anyway... another day, another 'tasche... we'll see what tomorrow brings - as if I didn't already know,.. ;)

Until then,


Saturday, 5 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 5 - Epic Beard Time

Whaddup hater... what do you know about beards?

Epic Beard Time here... talking about our next level beard creating manoeuvre... Using tried and tested prim shifting techniques, I've thrown together a shoutout to a man who's STUPID... and by stupid I mean SMART. He got drunk and cooked bacon on Youtube. I watched and learned...

So here it is... Harley... the first new full beard in nigh on eighteen months... *blush*

*ahem* OK done with the poor impersonation... Harley out now.

In other news, for La Venta Eventa this weekend we've got the Bakerboy from last month in six special patterns... L$75 until Monday...

Until tomorrow...


Friday, 4 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 4 - Don't be a stranger

Until tomorrow!


Thursday, 3 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 3 - Harking back

Today's offering is a remake of our 2008 style, HG... now massively improved. Hope you like it!

More tomorrow... and expect the first full beard diversion over the weekend... ;)

Until next time,


Wednesday, 2 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 2 - "Like my mother used to make"

Well, someone asked me whether I could make a soup strainer, so rightly I wondered why they were asking a hairmaker to make a kitchen utensil... so I did a little research, realised what they were on about and lo - it gave rise to the 'Minestrone'

...Might as well have a soup that's going to require some straining, after all...

Actually that sounds like a good idea for lunch... ;)

Until next time,


Tuesday, 1 November 2011

Tasche Dash - Day 1 - "It'sa Me!"

Hi all - for those who've been to the main store in the last two weeks, you've probably seen the signage advertising my plans to bring you a new mustache style every day for the month of November - well... slight change of plans - I'll be bringing you a new facial hairstyle - a lot of mustaches but the odd beard as well. ;)

In the meantime, Day 1 of 30 - MARIO

A slightly upturned, poofy 'tasche, now live for 30L a 4-box in-store. Not good for you? Come back again tomorrow! ;)

until next time,

Where there's hair, there's that hat...

Two new ones today, on the back of requests for hat and hat combis - Amanda and Mai.

Both are based around the Bakerboy hat that shipped last week. They're a little bit more than usual, at 225L a four-pack. The hat is still for sale separately (at 180L), but is included as a separate with both styles

That said, both styles and the hat are available in a treble pack for just 300L a fourway - can't say fairer than that...

If you bought the plain hat, and would like a free upgrade, just IM me inworld (Kallisti Burns) and fling me the transaction details, style and fourpack color choice and I'll ship you an update ;)

Amanda, Mai and the multipack are out now at Moonsong.

Until next time,


Monday, 10 October 2011

Fade out again... times nine...

Hi all - due to there now being some very closely related styles in the -dD- and -dDx- wings of the old main store, I've taken the decision to have a bit of a sale and finally cull nine three year old (in some cases) styles from the remnants of the older -dD- lines.

Both the old and new styles will be discounted until the 22nd - then the -dDx- lines go back to full price and the -dD- ones go.

See you instore,

Until next time,


Saturday, 8 October 2011

Neguinha Eventa

Hi all - La Venta Eventa comes around quickly, doesn't it?

Well, this week I'm happy to offer a pre-release of Neguinha (named after Neguinha Darcy of Kurka's blog), which is a set of medium length braids on the new pineapple hairbase...

Five colors, 90L and available till monday morning.

Short but sweet, this entry...

Until next time,

Put a hat on it and call it a thing

So I distracted myself last week with thoughts of trying something non-hair related... and what happened? I made a hat... apparently the apple doesn't fall far from this here tree:

This is the Bakerboy - now live instore and priced the same as a regular hair fourpack... a little steep for a hat on its own, you might say, but I got carried away. It was, after all, supposed to be an exercise in texturing, so I made a few variations... all selectable by touching the hat and clicking the relevant button:

I like it... a lot... and am yet to take it off... :)

Well - not true. I took it off long enough to shoot some vendor ads today for two new Savoir Hair freebies - Aura and Julius:

Both are out now in the four limited "Miscellany colors" - Discord Red, Raven Black, Ash Blonde and Milk Chocolate. Aura you've seen before, but Julius marks something different - new twist sculpts, and a new hairbase - the pineapple - that's set to make something of an appearance towards the end of the month - watch this space!

Until next time,

Exclusivity comes at a (reasonable) price

Greetings again after something of a break. This time out I offer you a little inside info on two styles available exclusively at Le.Look and Euphoria. The Le.Look exclusive -dDx- style is a set of long cornrows (that people have asked for) called Kaycee - five tails behind, one over the shoulder.

The Euphoria exclusive is a short, masculine cornrow pony, named hustle (remember our old -dD- style Rush? now you see where the name comes from ;) )

Both of these styles went live today. Topping that, of course, La Venta Eventa has cropped up again this weekend for me, so BOTH of these are available in the 5-pack of Discord Red, Milk Chocolate, Raven Black, Pearl and Ash Blonde for 90L. The boards, however, are not in the main store but in Le.Look and Euphoria respectively. Fear not if you're missing a landmark - TPs to both are available from the info board at the enterance to the main store.

Until next time,

One new, One updated, One out for La Venta Eventa

Does what it says in the title - just a short one to let you know of three new styles:

Khrystina - medium length messy braids with black roots - think Lux, but you've had it a few weeks and slept in it;) Available this weekend for La Venta Eventa in 5 shades - Ash Blonde, Discord Red, Raven Black, Milk Chocolate and Pearl for just 90L

Aly - the first set of braided pigtails since the now discontinued Seraphina - released two and a half years ago(!) - yeah... I took my time :$

Jocasta's another old one initially, released January 2009 - built December 2008, but one that's proven to be inordinately popular. It's high time it was revamped and has been - although the inherent details remain the same. Same back, updated headband and finally a better front...

Thursday, 28 July 2011

Slowly twisting in the wind...

UPDATE: These two styles are now live, as of 4.10am SLT, Thursday 28th July...

Two more launching before the end of the week - Aura and Delora...

What differs about the former - Delora - from work done before is that it isn't braided - it marks the first of a series of prim twists I hope to launch shortly - this was a prototype that I threw together for testing purposes, but those who saw it said I should put it up for sale... so I am!

Aura, by contrast, is an extension on the Arianrhod base much as Silva was to Jordan in '08-'09.

Hope you like - and out by the weekend...

Until next time,
