NOMINE APOCALYPSE AVATARS PT 2 ( and closing sale )

The male avatars are finally released! I am horrible, I apologize for making you wait so long. They are all up and in the store right now. I will be leaving the sim open through next wednesday to make sure everyone at least has a fair chance. 

I am also having a 100L sale on every stinking thing in my store from now until it closes. I will be starting that as soon as I send this message out. So come on down, have a looksee, grab an avatar and some clothes and skins. I love you all, thank you.

My darlings....

I am horribly horribly late this year, and I apologize for that. I am releasing the female avatars first, as I have them done. I will have the male avatars and the horses released as soon as possible before Halloween.

They are 5000L a piece and will never be re-released, especially considering Nomine's closing at the end of this month following Halloween ;)

They are a limited run of 12, but if one sells out, I may release a few more.

You are purchasing the original box and will need to pick it up as soon as possible or it will be autoreturned to your inventory.

The sets will NOT be sold separately. I will not sell parts of any avatar, only the complete package.

If I am available, I will be happy to model any of the avatars for you.

All avatars are mod/copy/ no transfer. 

They are as follows:





Each avatar package comes with BUCKETS o' stuff. The War avatar comes in black, red and navy blue - all of which are included in the package. Each avatar has an entire outfit, headpiece, staff, and many many accessories. For a full list of each package, please stop by Nomine and click the ad above the boxes. I will have the rest done SOON, I promise.

A final Thank You from Nomine

“If only there was enough space on this tiny card to evoke my unfettered joie de vivre for what you have done. The gaiety, the mirth, the heavenly bubbling of every effusive cell that sings inside me for your kind and pithy offering.”  - Joshua Braff

Dearest friends, customers, and passersby....

What a long, strange trip it's been, no?

The past few years have been extraordinarily hard for me. I've never been very public about my health issues, save a passing mention that I had them. About two years ago, post a bout with the flu, my body took a very serious turn for the worse.

I woke up with my hands locked in place, swollen, with a very large vesicular rash covering my upper arms. I ended up for the first of many, many times in the emergency room, where doctors hovered and came to no conclusions. I was sent to the first of several specialists then. Internal medicine specialists, rheumatologists, gastroenterologists, you name it. And every time I came home with a larger and larger amount of medical debt and no answers.

Finally I was sent to two geneticists, who diagnosed me with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. The short version of which is thus: my body does not and has never produced collagen right. Collagen is the building block that literally holds our bodies together. And mine doesn't work.

I was told there was no cure, and essentially no treatment. I would continue to get worse. I would spend the rest of my life in pain. I began a regimen of constant medication that I will continue for the rest of my life. Like a lot of diseases, there are degrees to which this one can affect someone. I am one of the unfortunate people who have a severe case. I do not ask for sympathy or condolences, it is what it is. I have come to terms with it.

This disease, however, coupled with the eternal downsliding of the economy have made Second Life an unviable option for me. I am no longer pulling in a liveable income, and haven't been for some time. I have fought like crazy to keep my store open despite the ever rising cost, but I can no longer manage that. I am deeply hurting for income and Nomine is costing more than it's making. The best option for me now is to close my inworld store and sell my sim. I will be leaving Nomine open through the end of October, as I have every intention of doing one last round of the Halloween avatars.

I will be leaving the marketplace open as an option through the end of the year.

As a final thank you, (and to be perfectly honest, a chance to make some direly needed income), I will be auctioning off one of each of some of my limited editions. I will be starting with the Alice in Wonderland avatars, and they will be auctioned off in my inworld store at a starting bid of 5k. The auctions will run for 48 hours and then a new set will take their place. I intend to auction off the past two years' tarot avatars, and one of each of the limited edition gowns from previous years.

These will begin today at noon.

You have all made my second life an amazing and enormous experience. I am awed and humbled by those of you who have stood by me all these years, and to every single customer who came to my store. I truly am.
You have pushed and inspired me to stay in business for almost 10 years. Your ideas and suggestions helped me evolve into something far greater than myself. I will remember you always.

Thank you, truly. I couldn't have done it without you.

Veni vidi vici

So I decided that I was tired of the gatcha makeups only being in the gatcha and took them out. I fixed the lips on every single one of them and made a handful of new ones, but I'm way more excited because I made a ton of really cool warpaint-ish tattoos. They are shown on men but are completely unisex, and most of them are colorable/tintable. All avalable in the new releases section in the store, or on the marketplace
here. I shouldn't write blog posts at midnight when I'm tired because I stop being formal and just write about whatever.

Nomine Stained Contacts

Nomine presents an entire slew of new and exciting contacts. Fantasy, overlays, horror, and the entire skittles rainbow of basic colors, ranging from light to dark.

There are many more contacts than what is shown here, these are only a sample of the available colors and styles.

Each set comes with an eye alpha, a set of prims that cover the entire eye, and a set of prims that only cover the iris of the eye. 

Each set of prims can be touched or clicked to change the textures. In the case of the fantasy eyes, all textures are included in the prims. You need only to click them until the right set matches up, or wear them mismatched! There are several colors included in each fantasy pack.

The irises will only cover the colored part of the eye, and should not be worn with the alpha. The textures on the prims are much higher quality than the SL mesh allows, and can be considered high rez. 

The irises can be worn on top of the prim sclera or eye white prims by right clicking and selecting "add." Some moving and or modification may be necessary to make them fit your eyes perfectly.

All the prim contacts are modifiable, which means you can easily set them to fullbright, glow, or stretch the iris to make it large enough for your liking. I recommend making a backup copy before you attempt this, as I will not replace eyes that are broken due to user error.

The overlays - tech and rune, are ONLY the iris part, and are meant to be worn over existing contacts or sclera. They are colorable and modifiable and spin slowly clockwise. The sclera contacts are ONLY the full contact size.

If you have any questions, please ask BEFORE purchasing. I will be happy to assist you.

The eyes are out now in the new releases section of Nomine, right in front of you when you teleport into the store.

In the spirit of absolute awesomely creative boredom, I've made an unholy amount of makeup, which I have filled into two gatcha machines that are bursting through with super cheap makeups, JUST WAITING FOR YOU. They are in the new releases section and will be right in front of you as soon as you teleport in. Each gatcha contains six rares and 20 common makeup sets. These makeup sets are ONLY in the gatcha machines, and cannot be purchased any other way. The gatchas are 20L for a round. Pretty pictures found below. 



All makeups come with a lip and eyeshadow version, and a version with no lipstick. The lipstick versions will work with Nomine's skins from Papillon forward. They will not fit with any earlier skin lines. They may or may not work with skins that are not from Nomine, as I do not create to match other skinmakers. The shadows, however, will work with any skins. The makeups are mostly intended for lighter skintones, but are modifiable and can be tinted darker or to match other skins. 

All makeups are transferable, and non refundable.

Nomine's Voodoo Valentine

It's that time of year again when our thoughts turn to candy, love, warm fuzzies, and sometimes hallmark cards. Well some of us. For the rest of us, the single, bitter, and possibly violent stalkers...well, there's Nomine.

I have created a legion of evil candy heart necklaces, all transferable, to help you express how you REALLY feel. Don't have the right words for mister wrong? Let this fun gatcha prize help you say it! Have a burning need to tell the world about your burning rash? I've got one for that too! The gatcha prize machine is located just inside the door of the shop ( right behind you when you tp in ) and awards a random prize for each try.
The complete list is located in the sign above the gatcha machine.

Also! I have created a limited edition single avatar, full of fiery burning wrath and bleeding red. She is available in two versions, white and black, with an option to buy both for a phenomenal discount. There are only 10 of each, so hurry! When they're gone they're gone. They will only be available until the end of this month, at which point any unsold avatars will be permanently retired. 

Please note that you are buying the original box, and will need to pick it up if purchased, or it will be returned to your inventory by the land's autoreturn.

So come feed your spite and chocolate eating hatred with me at Nomine. ( not-single, deleriously happy people also welcome, we're just jealous of you. )
