Gaslights Emporium MK.II

So here we are! Some two days after Port Babbage's initial opening, the new site for the Gaslights Emporium is looking presentable enough to call open. Feel free to drop by and see - all feedback is greatly appreciated!

To mark the event I've released two new batches of goods, with a few more shortly on the way.

First up is my range of formal dinner suits. These are far less dandy than my previous designs, with a much shorter coat bottom and a few done-up buttons for dignity's sake.

They are available for L$400 from either of the New Babbage outlets, and comes in a choice of:
Charcoal and

Though of course if you want another colour, you need but ask!

Secondly I've decided to release a couple of new canes to the ever-popular range, again with a few more on the way - why restrict the choice on a Gentleman's most important accessory, I say!

So for now I present the braced and the steel cane for your strutting pleasure.

Stay tuned for more, Gaslighters - these are early days yet!

Brave new shop

For those who haven't heard, I've made arrangements for a lovely new plot of land in the upcoming New Babbage port sim! I'm still in the process of constructing the building itself, ready to go in, but I plan to have some fun with it all. Imagine airship towers, an opening shop roof and finally that hangar-ship I've been talking about for months!

If anyone has any ideas or things that I'd be a fool not to include, feel free to drop me a message! It's all very exciting though, and I hope you'll all join me in making it as special and more than the current branch!

Eye caramba!

Yet another update!

In a bid to have the Gaslights Emporium cover yet more facets of Second Life existance, I'm pleased to bring you a healthy collection of eyes! Ideal for most system avatars, they're available for just L$40 each in a variety of vivid, 'hand' painted colours. Expect multi-packs in days to come, for those with a penchant for changing eye colours!

In other news, I have released my first true submersible! Unlike the airship 'pod' equivalents, this little one can only move beneath the waves, but move it does! Complete with an original driving pose and modifiable for resizing in according with your avatar shape, the Personal Submersible minisub is ideal for the upcoming New Babbage Docks and Vernian Sea sims. Don't miss out!

A Change of Face

Morning all!

It's not especially Emporium-related, but it seemed worth a mention anyway! After several months, I've made the jump to Vincente becoming a more "photo-realistic" avatar (See below!). All this came with the help of FNKY's superb skin range and stylish floppy hair from the very much under-stated H2L Hair Lab. Skin investment is always a weighty commitment, hence why I've hedged and put if off for so long, but having seen the amount of effort that goes into make a skin look halfway decent, I can only say that I'd rather not have to make it myself!

I'm rather pleased with the outcome anyway - there's a certain something to no longer having random bald spots and a slightly jaundiced complexion!

And now for something completely different

Good afternoon Gaslighters!

And no, really! I'm pleased to announce ("Finally!" you say) the opening of the Gaslights Emporium first floor (Or second floor, depending on how you look at it)! Contrary to original plans I'm using the floor as a costume shop which currently stocks a (gradually) expanding range of medieval and fantasy clothing. Take a look next time you're in the area and let me know what you think!

In other news - some of you may have already heard that I am looking to open up additional branches of the emporium. I'd just like to confirm that the second branch of my humble shop has been officially opened in the Four Deuces shopping precinct. While it currently stocks a very similar range to the New Babbage outlet, this shop will go on to feature more medieval and fantasy goods. Feel free to drop by and see what it's all about!
