Magnificent flying machines

I just wanted to take this time to announce that the vendors for the Gaslights airship range are now live and working!

For those not familiar with the Shepherd Industries 'pod' range, they're a series of aircraft comprised of metal plates, rotors blades and steam engines designed for aerial and nautical travel (Complete with steam or bubble particle effects depending on which environment you find yourself in!). There are three different models currently available with different uses in mind. Pictured below is the 'Airpod', serving as the slower moving of the series with added passenger space.

And now for something completely different

This is something a little special which I thought was deserving of a quick blog entry.

Gaslights Emporium is now host to a lucky chair, those most devious of gadgets - but this one isn't dispensing any old junk, oh no! This lucky chair will cycle through a list of limbs and attachments for the all new Mechanical Gentleman Augmentation Unit, challenging you to collect all seven independantly useable pieces in order to compile the complete avatar as below!

Good luck, Gaslighters!

Suits you, sir!

And it begins!

The Gaslights Emporium, situated in the New Babbage square district, has been gradually filling with stock and features for almost two weeks now and has finally reached the stage where I'm about ready to call it open!

Gaslights has been something of a dream-in-progress throughout my stay so far in Second Life. Its premise was to plug the gap in the market for authentic male Victorian clothing, drawing on liberal steampunk influences also to create a range of props, accessories and vehicles to complement it. I fully intend to make the jump into creating clothing for ladies in the weeks to come, but I've always reasoned that it's safer to attempt one thing at a time.

In recent days I've been focusing specifically on finishing several ranges of clothing and some complete outfits to cater to the better dressed gentlemen in-game, and am pleased to announce the release of both the Victorian dress suit and the formal tailcoat outfit!

Each outfit comes with a jacket, jacket bottom, trousers, shirt, waistcoat and tie, but seperate ranges of waistcoats are available for some mixing and matching. Keep your eyes peeled for added features here and by all means feel free to join the Gaslights Emporium store group in game for information, offers and freebies!
