Shoebox Event – September Round

Hey guys! A new shoe event has opened on the grid at 8 pm SLT on September 4th. The name of the event is called ShoeBox, and it is created by Rebeca Dembo (owner of CandyDoll), and co-owned by Skye Everidge. I am not sure if they both created the event together, for when I hear about the event, I only hear about Rebeca. However, if you look at the website and group, Skye is listed as a co-owner.

The event will start on the 4th of each month, and last until the 1st of the following month. This month we have 14 stores participating in the event.

I was surprised to see that a number of stores had shoes for only Maitreya feet – almost half the stores. It’s one thing if you have a certain style of shoe, and only a certain foot will do (e.g. Ingenue’s kitten heeled bootie). But if it’s a generic high or flat heel, there is no reason why a minimum of two sizes cannot be made. It just seems like in the rush to get items created by the deadline, shortcuts were taken by only rigging one size. I hope this will not be a trend for future rounds. People have written messages on Flickr expressing their pleasure or surprise regarding the items for this round. Go check out the photos and fave what you like, then come back here!

21 Shoe Event – June Round (48 hours!)

Hey everyone – welcome to the June round of 21 Shoe! This round is special because this is the first time that these deals will be available for 48 hours! So if you overslept or couldn’t make it on today, you still have another day ^^

This month’s group gift is from Klepsydra- exclusive stockings in system layer and several mesh body appliers.

 

Klepsydra  stockings - 21 Shoe June group gift

We have some new shoe designers on board, and some designers were not able to make it for this round. A couple of suggestions to the new designers:

1. Always have demos for your shoes. You are promoting your shoes to a broader audience who may not be familiar to your brand.

2. Labeling your ad to reflect which mesh bodies or feet can wear your items is a major plus. Sometimes people want to be able to tell at a glance whether a shoe suits them or not before trying on a demo.

Most of the shoes are “Exclusive” this round. This means they will only be available for this event, which ends in less than 48 hours. Look here and go to the stores now! ^^

21 Shoe Event – May Round

Hello shoe lovers – welcome to another round of 21 Shoe! Last month I had promised to keep you updated on whether the group will give out gifts for being a member of the group. And they did! Last week we received the following:

“Ahoy shoe lovers. For this round of 21Shoe we have an exclusive set of 12 fashion poses with mirrors courtesy of Thirty Loop Animations. The included 21Shoe Simple Pose Stand will whisper you instructions when you stand on it. Thank you for your fashionthusiasm and support!

Because of this stand, I was able to take this lovely shot – and it seems to be pretty popular on Flickr so far ^^

 This month it’s clear that Slink and Maitreya dominate as being the most popular shoe type. I think only one designer had just Slink. The Mesh Project has some shoes as well. After some feedback that I heard in a group last month, I have decided to list whether the shoe is exclusive, new, etc. This will help others who didn’t get a chance to get the shoes today figure out which shoes are still available. Most of the shoes ARE exclusive however, so that means you only have ONE day to get them!

21 Shoe Event – April Round

Hello everyone, and welcome to this round of 21 Shoe! It feels good to be back, but I think I will need to take this new computer back to the shop for them to look at it. It keeps restarting at random, and I can’t identify the cause of it :/

What has changed since the last round that I covered? There is a group fee of 150 L, which I find odd. I mean sure, it’s great that we can gain access to get great deals on shoes, but items only come out once a month. It’s rough to hold on to a group for 27-30 days with no activity. However, I hear we are going to have a gift in a few days so maybe there will be incentives for people to stay in the group? I will keep you posted.

I see that there is a good variety of shoes for the various brands of mesh bodies – Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and even The Mesh Project. I love the pastel colors for the spring season as well. Remember that these shoes (at this price) is only available for one day only! Some shoes may not be available after today, so keep an eye out for shoes that say “exclusive” ^^

21 Shoe Event – January Round

Hey everyone – happy New Year! It’s a new round from 21 Shoe, where all of these lovely shoes are available for one day only! If you are new to this event, 21 Shoe is an event where you get 2 shoes for the price of 1. You can update your wardrobe for only half of the cost ^^

Shoes for Slink feet dominate once again for this round, but there are a number of Slink/Belleza/Maitreya shoes for sale. There were not that many for The Mesh Project (TMP). I was surprised that N-Core had shoes for not only their feet, but Slink mid feet as well. So for those who had to say goodbye to N-Core when they purchased Slink feet, here is your chance to get reacquainted with the N-Core brand again.

Happy shopping!

21 Shoe Event – November Round

Hey everyone – after a break and a revamp, 21 Shoe is back! There have been some changes to the event, but it’s still great shoes, 2 pair for the price of one!

The most noticeable change I think is the logo for the event. I have to say, I liked the old design better, both in color and structural design. However, I like the fact that you can at least tint the new sign from pink to blue or purple (from observing the vendors). I don’t think a goth shoe or a shoe designed for men would look good in a pink vendor o.O

Next, you can see that there are SO MANY SHOES this event! It’s exciting, right? It was a bit more effort going to every store to see what was on sale, but I think it was worth it.

The shoes are majority for Slink feet, although there are a few for Belleza and I think one for The Mesh Project. Also, there were a couple of shoes that didn’t require mesh body parts to wear. I didn’t see any stores that had built-in feet like Gos or N-Core (although I hear that N-Core has its own system now with the feet + shoes like Slink).

As always, this event is for ONE DAY only!. The website says that not all shoes are exclusive (meaning that they will be available after the 21st), but all of the shoes are new. But if I were you, I wouldn’t take the chance of waiting.

Bring on the shoes!

Now, bring on the shoes!

21 Shoe Event – March Round

Hey guys! Sorry that I haven’t been around much this month…classes are kicking up into high gear, and now my dad gave me his cold 😦 Trying to get rid of it before it gets full blown, but I don’t know…

So! Welcome to the March round of the 21 Shoe event! There are some great shoes this round, and as always are only available for one day only. Now I know some people are upset that something like this is only for one day, because they don’t think it’s enough time to shop. But the way I look at is is, there are many things in RL and SL that last for one day only. And this plays up to the exclusivity aspect of having an event like this. Not everyone can have these shoes, but at least it’s not a case of, “There can only be one…”
