Price Slashes All Over!

I decided do to a disparaging remark, sales records, and the 'slum' of the market...
I'm cutting prices on a select few items throughout my store. You'll have to visit to see just how low I can go (A hint.. the ID servery has a version for 300L$!!)
I reduced prices down to almost unheard of levels for my level of quality and functionality.
This applies to the scribery, serveries, certain bondage items, fire pits and misc others.

Havok4 & My Store

As many of you may have found out through trial and error and silly flight system problems in my store.. as well as the little notice :: My store, the whole sim is a Havok4 Early Adopter sim. We have been this way for as long as they've had it avaliable. This does cause problems. I believe that being Havok4 is for the best though because eventually ALL of SecondLife will have it. Unlike many other designers who choose to either not update or live on mainland or not their own sim, all of my products will be completely compatible with Havok4 when it is released. We do still do testing on regular sims so that items work on Havok1 sims as well until the full update is released. Occassionally the sim will get updates to the Havok4 and we may have problems with all sorts of little things, and all I can ask is that you bare with me and report it to not only myself but Linden Labs as well. The sooner it's resolved the better.
I just felt I needed to address this after a peculiar talk with a friend whom was having problems with other designers items that were supposed to do the same as mine but did not, and he had also had a problem with an item of mine that functioned improperly because it was old On a Havok4 Sim.

Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and reading this!

The fabulous set has arriiivvveedddd!!

Okay so I guess canvas, tarnished iron, torn and burnt rugs, and crude wood isn't fabulous to 90% of SecondLifer's but hey, to me- this set is like the creme de la creme of rustic furniture. Want to seeeee itttt? I bet. Well. I'll post images in a bit. Lets talk!
This gorgeous bed is scripted, animated, and detailed to the max! This bed alone is selling for 185L$, the carpet? 250L$. Tack that on with tons of little bits... well it's far more then what I'm selling it for! 500L$, yep. You get a small houseful of this gorgeous matching furniture for like half or less of what it's worth. I'm crazy, yes. But I'm not stupid, this set is too cheap to pass up for it's quality. What's inside that makes it so faaabbbuuullouuuss? Well..
The bed. This bed is extremely detailed. It's a slat-style bed with a straw stuffed mattress and 1 couple, one single animation from Pillow Talk. The bed also has a scripted sculpted blanket that covers you up all tight and snug when you lay in it, and goes poof when you don't. Ohh lordy, for such a nice item must be hefty in the prims, eh? Nope. 16 prims, not bad.
The rug. Rug you say? Why is a rug expensive or special...? This is why :: It's a custom made rug with burnt holes, warping, fraying, and ripping, ideal for this situation, it's also high in resolution, detail, and depth. It is coverd with 4 single animations and 2 couple sets as well as a handful of tossed around canvas sculpted pillows which match the bed and the 1 prim pillows. The animations are a combination of PillowTalk & Bits n Bob's, and all are -very- nice. This rug is goorrgeeoouuss!

Okay okay! Ready for pictures? Me too! Fresh out of Photoshop here they are (Courtesy of my love)

Enjoy =) You can find this item inworld inside the little alcove with the red curtains and the scribery area.

Peasant Set Making Headway:

The second of the large living sets is finally making headway. For a few days I was sort of dumb on what to base the style off of, the bed really was a killer. Today I finally got hit in the head with the two base textures for it. It will be based off of a canvas texture as well as the one everyone knows as "Iron Diamond" or "ID" in my store, meaning the pieces will match perfectly with the Scribery and Servery sets, as well as many other items.
The bed is a simple, hay-stuffed slat bed with a sculpted blanket, pillows, and three PillowTalk sleeping animations. One Couple, one Single.
I'm also going to be including like normal, a hand-wash basin (for dishes, or other countertop stuff), a wash tub (for bodily cleaning), tables and cushions matching, various little accessories like a washcloth basket, waterbowl, urns, and a few misc pieces of food.
I would expect this to be done tomorrow or the next day, depending on the RL workload of both myself and my partner, Codered1200.
If you'd like to see a sneak preview, just ask!

The next set up is a high-mid class almost aristocratic living set with darker richer woods and satiny fabrics. Slightly higher prim, but with all the essential basics we've always provided. A gorgeous set for those who aren't so poor in RP. (Of course, all of our living sets are 500$L each, even though individual pieces may go upwards of 1000-1500L$ we are anxious to provide realistic furniture for realistic prices.)

It's here!

The gorgeous tribal living set is finally here! Yaaayy!
I went all out on this one, it's got so much in it @_@!! 4 Pillow Talk Anims, several Bits n Bobs and a few other misc. It's GORGEOUS! ;_;
Here are some photos of it! =)

Hope you like it! I'm anxious to see feedback.

New Set Nearly Done!

I've become rather lazy and slow in my recent work, I've picked up small jobs from other people, and become quite blahtastic when I myself are building.
I'm just sort of built-out... but! I have managed to get enough energy to make what I promised... the first one anyway. This is going to be GREAT for all the panthers, feys, or very woodsey campers.
I even made a few custom pieces for it =D
These are my economy packs, they're 500L$ and an essential set that supplies a bed, bathing basin, wash basin (hands), 4 types of lighting, cushions, tables, food, a relaxing area, in the tribal case :: a campfire and two logs, and accessories such as urns, rep cloth basket, waterbucket, and a few other small things. When I calculated out the entirity of the contents it came out to a whopping 1,250L$!(Actually more, but I subtracted since some small items arent copyable)

I was speaking with a customer this evening, and she too thought this was a great idea, not only because it's such a steal, but because most people, especially my common customers, the men of the household, are lazy and do not want to spend all the time shopping for things to fill their house... solution : Sets!
They match, they work, and it's everything you could need to set up the basic household. Too good to be true? Nope! Look for this release and updates by tomorrow!

Reduction: All Prim Clothing

Due to my lack of updating and improving the rather dim quality and variety of the prim clothing I hold on the second floor, I reduced the price down, dramatically. All items are full prim, and textured in 4 matching textures, even the 2 other brown and green rope sets are cut back. I do hope to make some more items avaliable, but these are primarily just for those, who do not really have much of a variety of clothing to wear something decent. They're all modifyable and look okay, but they're old, and really sort of blah. If you're interested in the range of prices currently, the lowest per item / color is 50L$ for a pair of sort of cozy prim booties which can be worn with the legs or without. The highest I think (excluding set which is 200 something) is only 125 for the cloaks. Some other items I do plan to expand on are the huntress gear which includes pouches, belts, and other cheap accessories to help you keep from pulling rope and other items out of your butt and actually have them be on you.

5 Minutes Into The Day...

Well! That scribery set was released today and it spun me into a whole new world of sets. I want to make sets. I have the craving, to make sets. For a few reasons:
* What they see, they get. No dissapointments.
* The Pictures look SO much better, when you have a lot.
* Give me a basis, a theme to build on. Rustic isn't specific.
* Fun & time consuming. I hate being bored.
So that's it, yep. I've planned a release of what I call the "Living Set" which basically is a little sampling of every product I have to fill the common household with a servery, some seating, sleeping, bathing, and other stuff!
I'm sure by now, you've realized don't rely on me to actualy come through with everything, but the living set seems like a formidible and good idea -- I mean. No more shopping and being sad because you paid 500L$ for a couch but you thought you got the whole room etc. I'll probably make it in about 2 or 3 packs, going from minimal sort of panther-y items to the more lavish, cozy, and overfilled package.
I think this really will make shopping a lot easier, I mean.. c'mon! No more misconceptions, what you see is what you get & you wont have to shop around for every little tiny piece to make your house look that good. Our pictures arent photoshopped except a black fading out on the edges in some, and wording of course. Otherwise they're 100% SL, most the time not even windlight.
Anyhow, I will post my second set here for you all to oogle over, it came out beautifully =) I'll do two pics, so you can see details.

Slow Day

Today was slow, like normal, both in sales and production. I haven't released really anything but I do plan on packaging a sort of scribery set as well as an infirmary set. But probably only one will be done today, another tomorrow.
I'll talk about the scribery one, since I think I'll do it tonight. Scribery.. meh. More like an office, or library. Track-keeper. Depends on who you are to what you call it. It's going to be compiled primarily of the "ID" set that is on the third floor, complete with the scripted bookshelves, 2 seating (1 writing, 1 not), a desk, fire lamp, a few scribbled pieces of paper, ink jars, endless quils, an open book, and whatever else I can think would go with it. I may include some ground cushions, maybe a low table or two. It'll all be matching in that gorgeous dark wood. I thought that large packs might interest some people because you dont have to dig through all of my store to find the tiny tidbits and match and all that, it's all there and usually at a decent price. I dropped the price of my one other large set, the ID Ultimate Servery (seen below) to 1550, and probably this scribery set will only be about 250L$ or 300L$.

Enjoy and take care.

Some more rereleases

I'm on a roll, re-releasing all my old items I feel are still decent, todays were the sculpted meat rack, the sculpted 3 prim torches (very... eh.. outpost/campy) and my food barrels. I need to do some retexturing and make more of each, but generally they're pretty nifty. I also hope to be able to find nice rug textures, when I do expect a large amount of cuddle, sleep, and other sort of anims piled onto a rug. I hope that I can get this one last wall filled up, and throw stuffs inside my huts then I believe my store will reclaim much of it's old cozy feel. I'm always looking for ideas, if you have 'em and want to see them fulfilled, throw me an IM & I'd be happy to help.

New Script: New Possibilities

I've had a lot of ideas come up with this new script we created for the library bookshelving. The script is really phenominal and moderately low lag, since it's menu operated.
Basically what it does is you put xxx items, ranging from notecards, landmarks, objects, skins, shapes, pretty much everything... Inside the primary object, in this case, a bookshelf. You then have the script, which assigns itself a random 9 digit number so to not interfere with nearby ones. Then you click the object, it brings up a menu (Buttons name themselves by the objects name) and you click & receive! It's a really nifty system and opens up an endless amount of possibilities in the dispensible arena. I've got a few ideas, such as making full on single sets for infirmaries, kitchens, and libraries that are all 1 piece but gives individual items. It will also make my travel bag, when I make more / update 100x better and more efficient. Other things I can now improve on are my bandage baskets. I have a lot of plans with this, but as with my post earlier today, I'm sort of blah and have some sort of nasty little virus that makes the bed look like the holy grail and fountain of youth to me currently, so I will check online a few times a day for IMs, transactions, and notices.
As always, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or recommendations regarding my store, please feel free to voice them. I love feedback and I'm always open to new ideas, there is no guarantee I can fulfill them, but I'll certainly try!

Releases & Re-releases

Released within the last few days are 2 -great- chair styles and a few water pieces.
I released the chairs as the "Comfy" (Single) and "Cuddle" (Couples) chairs. They look identical except for the poseballs, and come in 4 different cushion colors, the cushions, which are gorgeously sculpted, are arranged in a semi-circle around the back, making it look exceptionally plushy. They are each 11 prims and 125L$ each, and I plan to make a smaller line for singles with just 1 pose later on, also in the same 4 mosh of textures.
My other releases, and re-releases today are my old 'water bowls' which not only use a new sculpty, but are in 7 beautifully realistic textures, my water pump in a bucket, my bucket of water, my old fashioned water pump, and my 6 prim water spigot. A new release is making my water spigot, low prim version, for my serveries sold for seperate, for those who think theirs is superior to mine, or just want a different style I don't have. It's fully functional, sound, and particle effects.

I plan on a few new releases today, but I wont give that away because I happen to like the suspense.
Remember: If you have any recommendations, concerns, comments, or other issues with my products, please tell me!

Blog Restart.

I'm going to redo the blog, like... delete posts and restart.
I'm Nyalee Mirrikh, of Dysfunctional Dolly Designs.
I product mass quantities of rustic or old-world themed items, such as (but not limited to)kitchenware, infirmary (physican-ish) furniture, huts and woodsey builds, campfires, fireplaces, bedroom/livingroom items, dining items, dispensible items, some clothing, some mild bondage things (hardly sexual) and soon, slave chores.
I am one of the larger competitors out there for this group of items, and there isn't much of a variety out there so far, I hope to expand on it. Currently I occupy the sim Sanguine, one which my boyfriend owns, and he also helps me build. Not in depth co-building, but he does help a lot on small stuff, like texturing issues, sculpties, scripting, and when I lag a lot: Naming things. My store even has a small little alcove at the bottom where I keep the most peculiar items... errh.. like my tongue chair. I can't explain that, but you definitely have to see it. My primary floor has all of my main items such as my vast amounts of serveries, my randomly there campfire pieces, and the little alcove in which I store bedroom/livingroom items that are a little more lavishly comfortable.
Well, I'll stop ranting for awhile. I'll post pictures later, take care!

"New" Releases

My releases today are both old and new, meaning some are changed, modified, or just put out again. Some of these items are copiable, some aren't.
One of my newly released items are the
sculpted 3 prim bota in 4 fur patterns,
my ka-la-na dispensing barrel (which I plan to make a paga one etc)
some of my new sculpted bottles (New sculpties, never seen before!)
A set (maybe more later) of sculpted dishes, including plates, bowls, goblets, and simple cups.
Beautifully sculpted and shaded urns in 4 varieties
Other things I've done today is to remarkably reduce prices on my ultimate servery kit to 1750, many smaller items are down to a lot as well, such as quite a few little tables for 15L, my bloody infirmary cot for under 90L$, and many of my new releases are only 10L$ each.
I'm going to continue reducing prices all over my store, keeping the simple and unscripted items to below 25L, animated ones vary from 25L$ to 100 per animation. My corner servery, I have removed the high prim version and reduced the low prim version to only 550L$ for two animations & the working faucet. It's like 40ish prims if I remember right.
I've sort of postponed my bedroom set stuff due to my lack of enthusiasm on it. I will be releasing some 'outdoor' items varying from my former meat rack to some torches, and even my olde fashioned hand water spigots.
I hope you all enjoy, and like normal- I'm more than willing to do customs and modifications.
