La Boheme – Sneak preview of what is coming!

I did it.  I totally had fun doing it, too.   Behold..!  An array of false eyelashes for every mood.

The Cosmetic Fair will open on June 15th for another seasonal round, and the theme is red hot summer!  Well, ok, they aren’t red in the pictures, I get that, but La Boheme will be offering six different sets of false eye lashes for the Catwa mesh head system and they are 100% tintable.   Which means, if you want red eyelashes, well by golly you can have red eyelashes.   Each set will contain five upper lash variations and five lower lash variations, from thick lashes to snazzy lashes, full lashes, natural lashes and more lashes than you can shake a lash at.   We have standard styles, glittery glitz, feathers, laces and other fun styles, too.  Better yet?   Each set will be only $50 at the event, so scoop them up and make your summer..er.. red hot?

I will also have some Catwa lipsticks and new eyes being featured at the event!  More info and a taxi with landmark will be provided in a more proper post with all ad previews closer to event opening. ♥

Taking a moment to answer some common customer questions…!

Hi there. =)

Santana Lumiere (me!) has been a content creator in Second Life since early 2004 under the store name Nevermore.  As a designer, I get a wide range of comments from customers, both appreciative and complaints.  This is common place and all of it taken  into consideration for future products.   I would like to take a moment to field some comments I have amassed over the years and hope this helps those who are new to perusing La Boheme products.   This article will later appear as a permanent page for future access.

La Boheme @ We Love Role play March 2017

Hey folks! We ♥ RP opens its doors for another round tomorrow (the 4th) and runs til the end of the month.  We have  a bunch of stuff to offer everyone for only $50 per set for the duration of the event. Take a taxi to We ♥ RP.

First let me happily flaunt the 14 sets of eyes all themed after the 14 tribes of garou from the RPG World of Darkness.  They range in style and darkness depending on the overall humanity vs more wolf aspect of the tribes. \o/  World of Darkness is one of my all-time favorite RPGs and so I was excited to do one based on the 13 tribes of garou + the 1 extinct tribe (which, invariably, someone always asks to play in a campaign and you have to slap them down and remind them White Howlers are DEAD haha).  Also… We have added Catwa Mesh Eye appliers to our eye sets and plan to do so until.. well, until we get sick of making eyes.  New and shiny eyes.. oooohhh… ahhhh…  ooohhhhhh…

Secondly I am offering more Catwa cosmetics, but most of it is for the bento heads!  Some cross over between bento and regular Catwa mesh heads and are marked as thus.  Some are just for the Catwa regular heads.  Read what I used to create each set for and if you own neither the Gwen mesh head or the Kimberly bento head, feel free to try on demos because the appliers are script compatible with all of Catwa’s mesh heads and maybe something will look good on you.   Please note the release of these nine items will be twofold – released here and at the skin fair simultaneously.

 

La Boheme’s Annual Year- End Sale 2016

la-boheme-year-end-sale-2016

That’s right, folks.   The end of the year is nearly here, and that means everything at the La Boheme shop is going on sale for 60% off again!  The sign says it all, the shopping crusade begins December 15th and it will be your chance to scoop up all the loot you can possibly carry.  Also, there’s plenty of freebie gifts awaiting you at the store should you not mind Santa bringing you a present or three.  Gift previews can be seen in previous blog posts here.  Get your shopping shoes on!

Please be aware that due to prim restrictions, all of La Boheme’s items are in vendor machines at the in-world shop.  Please be courteous to other shoppers and don’t horde four at a time, ok?  Ok!   Also, the vendors are super simple to use – click any thumbnail image on the window and it will set it to the larger central image – click that to buy the item(s) of your choice.  A first for us, Talus has endeavored to spread the holiday cheer and set the sale prices on all our items on the marketplace, too!

La Boheme @ The Wash’s Winter Cart Sale 2016

Hurrah, the cart sale is coming! Well, it is here, sort of.  Designers are still setting up, but I see a number of displays ready to go.  The awesome part?  The Wash is a shopping district open 24/7, and so the displays are all accessible!  Come snag loads of goodies from designers from the Wash & also guest designers for only $10 an item! Just follow the roads all across the sim to see the magnitude of sales available to you – and come before the sim gets too crowded by other shoppers!

La Boheme has 15 items for $10 each just outside our shop’s doors.  Several pretty nail appliers, a set of the Garou mesh eyes (10 eye colors in there!), two sets of the lip pets for the classic SL avatar, as well as two sets of lip appliers for the Catwa mesh head system.  Don’t miss out!  Just use the taxi to our shop to get here.

And yes, I totally photobombed my own display.  Shameless! ♥

On cosmetics for specific mesh head systems

One of my store bloggers asked me a question the other day, and therefore I just wanted to do a tiny explanation for everyone why things are as they are.

I make cosmetics (and mesh eyes and nail polish), and as a former skin designer I realize that making cosmetics entirely universal is very difficult and next to impossible unless making them for a specific skin.  As a third party cosmetics designer, we have to hope that our products look fine on any number of skins (granted the skin one wears beneath the cosmetics is not full of dark cosmetics to begin with) and can cover lips, not mess with eyebrows, etc.  The thing is, every designer of skins sets these differently, and therefore 100% camouflage is not possible always.  Sometimes a cosmetic layer over an existing skin just does not work with that specific skin, and as a third party designer it can be a challenge.

La Boheme @ We ♥ RP November round

Oh, so many goodies to blurb about here.   For this round of We ♥ Role Play, La Boheme has made a slew of new items: Lipsticks, eyeshadows, face paints all for the Catwa mesh system, and some mesh eyes!  All item sets are only $50 each for the duration of the event before they come home to the store at the end of the month and will be at full price: $75.

We ♥ RP runs from the 4th through to the end of the month.  Take a taxi there.

La Boheme – Updating Store & Marketplace!

With the amount of items I make for various events each month, I don’t get to update the store with all the new stuff until that month has passed.  To access new items shown in posts here, you need to go to that current event to get the item while it is new and priced on sale, or wait until it comes home and goes full price.

The in-world shop has been updated with nearly a hundred items today which spans from October to before that (and some which slipped through the cracks).  Talus, who handles the marketplace side of the store, will be putting all these new items onto the marketplace most likely tomorrow.

Therefore, if you have been looking for items from previous months which were in posts here or on Flickr, you can get them now.  Sorry about the delay!

PS – This means I can enter the Fifty5 Thursday sales listings again with so many new items to circulate and put on sale for you folks. ♥

PPS – Callie Cline, a longstanding SL friend and one of the three fabulous creators of KittyCatS, contacted me this week.  I’ve had a store outlet on her sim for like a year now, and she is about to put her whole sim under construction to make it rock and add some cool features.  Thus, if you were using my outlet there, you won’t be able to until her sim re-opens.   I’m excited to see what she does with her sim. =)  — This is the ONLY outlet for La Boheme, I primarily use my own in-world shop and marketplace.  Oh, and also!  La Boheme will be in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar again this December.  Woot, free loot to come!

La Boheme @ Alchemy

Over at the monthly shopping event Alchemy, La Boheme is offering the 5 sets of Berlin lip appliers for the Catwa mesh head system for only $50 each, as well as six sets of nail polish appliers for only $40 each.  See below for all previews.

La Boheme @ The Freakshow

This year we have four Halloween exclusives made for the Freakshow event organized by SCALA. There’s a Halloweeny face paint set for the Catwa mesh head system for $50, and three awesome Van Helsing nail polishes for only $35 a piece.  Beyond this, a Lelutka eyeshadow and face paint are there, as well as other cosmetics and face paints for the classic SL avatar on sale at my stall.   The Vampyr eyes and likewise Halloweeny themed mesh eyes are making a sale round here, too, so all of those are only $50 if you missed them over at We ♥ RP this last month.
