WE LOVE ROLE-PLAY ist starting tomorrow at 3pm slt and we are al soooo excited about it. There are so many crazy awesome goodies and great deals for people to pick up! Don’t forget to check outour WEBSITE, where we update the previews as soon as they are being sent to us. You will also find the previews here on The Blogging Elf. 🙂
So, let me tell a brief story: Calico applied for We Love Role-Play and we declined her for several reason. We were simply not convinced. A day after I sent the message (I really loathe doing that!) Calico Ingmann IMed me and I got prepared inwardly for lots of butthurt and a shitstorm.
But nope, nothing like that happened at all. In fact,a very friendly, if somewhat sad seeming Calico asked me what the reasons were and I reluctantly explained them. It makes me feel awkward giving feedback so directly especially when a person is very polite and kind. I pointed out our main concerns and we brainstormed a bit on what could be improved. She said she’d work on it, what already surprised me!
Two days ago, Calico IMed me again to tell me she had redone ALL her textures and her meshwork. Then she sent me a review copy. I was worried…what if I still didn’t think it was good? I put on the hair, and while it is no style I would wear regularly, my eyes almost dropped out of my head. I think my first response to her was something along the lines of ‘WOW.’
Calico Ingmann’s new textures are amazing imho and easily up on par with many of the famous hair designers out there. They are soft and natural looking, subtle highlights and the colours are well chosen. Each colour-package comes with a HUD to tint the hair which is another big plus in my book. I am very much in love with these and love that she told me she’d update her newer styles, too!
But not only the textures improved majorly! Her meshwork did, too. Before, it always seemed a little too chunky too me, not gentle curves but blocky strands. Now? I see soft curls and smooth strands that look entirely natural. It looks so soft I wanna bury my face in it. I am very much convinced that with her current improvements, Calico really stepped up her game and now can compete with the popular creators out there again.
Also, each part of the hair accessory is tintable with a HUD. 🙂 I chose autumny colours for this style.
I really ask you guys, even those who always frowned upon the mere mentioning of her store, to give this store a chance. Not only has she improved her hair within only two weeks by more than a 100% in my book, but also she proved to be an incredibly mature person with an admirable attitude that deserves applause. No one likes to hear negative things about their products, but where many, many designers would have blown up in my face and complained all over the social media to raise a mob against that terrible woman who dared to point out bad stuff about their items, Calico instead took the hints and ideas and WORKED. And the result is sooo worth to have a look at, so wait for her new releases! 🙂
We for sure invited her for WE LOVE RP now and are glad to have her in!
And here you can see Calico’s hair from behind!
Yasum Designs by Azlyn Vaher is a store that utterly confuses me. Most of the time, I totally get lost in their huge, confusing layout and give up frustrated after 20 minutes, haha. I have been frequenting their store in the past at times, but lately it seems they really improved their game. These boots are really to my liking! They come ins everal earthen colours and are part of a gacha which’s price is 75L. The mesh is welldone from what I can tell and…I LOVE the straps and lacings! Lacings! Azlyn made me an happy elf with these. 🙂 I also like the unique idea of adding a bit of a metal part to the boot, giving them quite the badass look. Don’t you dare to let me kick you! 😛
