Greetings ZoHa Islands Residents!
This week I bring you a great store specializing in women’s and men’s attire… she’s got some fabulous outfits – mesh with color change HUDs ..you name it. Definitely worth a look and great for those Christmas gifts!
Store Name: ~ Shadow Moon ~
Store Contacts and Title: Candy Nizna (owner)
KittyKat Jules: What does your store sell?
Candy Nizna: I sell both women’s and men’s clothing for the everyday person. I have a dark humor side to me so that is what comes out mostly. I also make props and a few furniture pieces. I do monthly hunts so I tend to make random hunt themed pieces or clothing.
KittyKat Jules: How long has your business been established?
Candy Nizna: I actually opened a store 3 months into being in SL. We role-played as Native Americans in the 1900’s – so I made native wear as well as a couple of female settler dresses for my alt. – The store was named after my role-play avatar name “Shadow Moon”. After we moved from there to doing what we do best; “being ourselves”, I started making clothes that my hubby and I wanted to wear. Nothing specific, just what floated my boat that day.
KittyKat Jules: What made you want to start up your business and what drives you to keep going?
Candy Nizna: As I mentioned before, we started out as role-players, and when we were looking for low-prim items that would keep prim and lag down for role-playing we either couldn’t afford it as we were new to SL or couldn’t find what we needed low prim, so we had to make it ourselves.
KittyKat Jules: Any exciting happenings or new items you’d like to show off for us?
Candy Nizna: I just figured out the Mesh Scripts to allow for multiple color/texture changes without making your inventory blow up… so I have a female dress and a male outfit that are spectacular!
KittyKat Jules: What would your advice be to the new business owner in Second Life?
Candy Nizna: Do what you want, you will never please everyone. It’s a rough go in SL to make Lindens…so if you’re in it to make a fortune, you will be highly disappointed.
KittyKat Jules: How did you originally get started in Second Life?
Candy Nizna: I think I answered this in some of the other questions. 🙂
KittyKat Jules: Any hobbies besides running your business? What do you like to do in SL?
Candy Nizna: I blog for my own store and I have my own Fashion Blog about other people’s items, I love shopping – might as well show off my purchases!
My friends and I (the 3 Biotcheteers) play board games, we decorate, we chat, we avatar watch…..I have made some great RL friends from SL, glad that we had SL to meet each other since we are from all over North America.
Sounds like a great place to get some of that Holiday shopping done!
