A rainbow of slinky knee-high boots with a playful heel, the Riga Kicks were something I made just about exactly 2 years ago, but was kinda meh on my texturing skills at the time when it came to them. (Also, it was in the middle of a fashion show for which I was making a number of all new things _and_ Shoe Fair, and I sort of got a case of terminal oh god kill me now burnout.) I've dusted them off and started over from scratch on texturing them, and am much happier now. The are traditionally mod and _not_ made such that the foot must be sized particularly to the calf, for easier fitting on a wider range of avatars. They come with with one piece attachments with the ankle locked, and two piece (which also let you wear just the foot bit with long pants), so you can decide which way you prefer to wear them. They also come with invisiprims and with alpha masks, so whether you have a 2.0 featured viewer or not, you're set (me, I'm excited about alpha masks because that's another reason I kept waffling on them- the avatar foot doesn't go for a heel quite that high so it's made up in bulky platforms, so the invisiprims are larger than I really like....as I generally hate invisiprims making floors disappear entirely). Uberpack has a texture change HUD to let you fit just once and then change _that_ at a click.

Schadenfreude is a brand is Second Life, which has a big black elephant on Nouveau and a little cottage in the Munchkin village in Oz.
There are also a few things that were available in world for a limited time for events, or that have been retired from the elephant, that are now ONLY available on the Marketplace. (Including all the hair!)
With the death of onrez, I have no comprehensive web based gifting systems. Selections of items are on the Second Life Marketplace.
I am also very happy to gift items for you if you contact Allegory Malaprop directly! And you can also get old fashioned gift cards, if you contact me directly (sadly, many gift card systems are prone to security holes that can open up with no notice- if I do it by hand I can keep track a bit better...in theory).
I don't have a blogger list, for a number of reasons. I love seeing things blogged! I just don't do blogger lists, or review copies beyond some events. I totally do respect that blogging is expensive, even with promotional copies, and I'm sorry, but this is what works for me.
p.s. I do love to chat (though I'm not actually good at it- you'll probably have to carry the conversation!), so do feel free to talk to me anyway!
