Dear Friends,

As we come to the end of 2008, I look back at this past year and think of all of the people that I have met and all of the people who have touched my life in some way. I am so fortunate to work in a place that I love, surrounded by people I love, doing things that I love to do. I would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to you. Thank you for being part of my life. If you have not gotten the free skin and lingerie and shoes that I have out in my main store at Shapes by Kira on the Flawless sim, please do. They are part of the Peace on Earth hunt which ends on December 26. Also, if you join my group, I will be handing out a dress in a card to everyone on December 24. Members of my subscriber will also receive the gift. And, as an added bonus, I will be including one free dress so that you can share with a friend. I would like to wish each and every one of you a joyous holiday season no matter where you are in the world and no matter what you and your family celebrate. I hope that the new year will bring you love, peace, and happiness.

Kira Paderborn

Armoire-Diversity Challenge

Well, Kira and I decided we could do the Armoire-Diversity Challenge easily seeing that Kira dresses male shapes all the time. Well, I still found it pretty challenging...Its hard to look good in alot of the mens clothing out there o.O

Here is Kira's, of course she spent like 2 minutes dressing and looks totally awesome. Great job on the photo too.

Here are mine, I did have fun doing this challenge, I would see guys that looked good and I would inspect his prims and head to that store lol. So I am not going to give names of where I got the stuff, because I didn't keep track. I went through so many different outfits, If you see something you want to know where it came from, just IM or email me, I will look it up for you.

Okay, this next one, looked better in my head then the photo, course it was on a man in my head. *giggles*

Would be way HOT on a smexxxy man right?

I had time to do another tribute to Bare Rose for the week long Rosebud challenge that Winter challenged us to do. YAY! I decided to do Christmas/winter themed outfits this time since tis the season fa la la. The red santa outfit I dug out of the big, scary, very deep inventory from last year. The other is the recently released 'Clausy' which I did not want to take off, it is soooo adorable! Clausy comes in blue, red and black.

Thank you June Dion for all the creativity you provide us, the multiple color choices and the awesome prices. Thank you Winter for reminding us and having us celebrate the often overlooked in our blogs but never forgotten in our second lifes, Bare Rose.

There is only one vampire in my Second Life, A dreamy well dressed, gentleman vampire who is also a very dear friend named Winter. As you probably know by now, Winter has given all bloggers a challenge to celebrate Bare Rose. This is an opportunity to do something for the vampire who gave me his favorite fangs, even if he didn't mean to. Also, this gave me an excuse to go check out the newness at Bare Rose. I don't make it there often because I know I will be there for hours looking at all the awesome stuff for such a good price. I too was under the belief that there were more then one creator of all this quality, especially with such diversity, so all I can say is WOW! June Dion holds a magnitude of talent, and very much deserves this appreciation week, Thank you June! Here is my choice to show the grid.

This is the TRADurian outfit and it comes five colors; blue, pink, purple, grey and red. I of course chose the pink *grins* I cannot even tell you how many compliments I have gotten, I didn't want to take it off.

History will be made today as we kick off the biggest hunt ever here in SL. GRID WIDE! I have to admit, I am scared of this going on at the same time as the Christmas gifts are starting. I am quite sure I still have some of those gifts in my objects folder untouched! Then I find out, these are going to be 'good' items O_O /me facepalms. My inventory is so out of control and looks as though it will be reaching higher numbers...OH WELL! LETS GO!

Look at what Kira has put out for the gift!

Shaping Up Your Second Life - IT'S TIME! 12AM SLT

Ok, the time has finally come for our grand re-opening of Flawless! YAY! I hope you all come check us out, there are some great designers here, one whom I will be showing you some of his creations in this post.

For the opening event we have a fantastic hunt with great free goodies to be found. You will find things like skins, shapes, hair and clothes from different designers (yes I said skins).

In addition to all that, Kira has put out 20 items from Last Call and Moderno to be had by the first to find them! Midnight, my little hunters, be there or be square. *giggles*

I am very excited to tell you about our first designer i am blogging about, Kwamey Pinion of Soreal. OMG his stuff is absolutely amazing, I find myself unable to stop looking at them for long periods of time. Any of you that have seen me in the last week or so knows that I have been wearing a backpack and tennis shoes (me not in heels you say, I know, but wait til you see these!)

Kwamey designed the "SOREAL Superstars" after his all-time favorite sneaks in real life, and wow did he nail it. These are so realistic looking as are his backpacks. The sculpture work and the textures are just, magnificent! They come in a variety of colors, and you can buy a single pair or a mega pack which includes three exclusive colors only available with the mega pack. To top it off, they are priced very reasonable at just 399L a pair. Here, take a look for yourself, if you haven't seen Kwammy's work, you are in for a treat.

Look at the detail

So, it is just about time for the hunt to start... get over here!

Shaping Up Your Second Life - Next Round

Hi everyone, *waves* I am back and as promised I have more great shapes to show you! After this I am going to be posting again right away to tell you more about the grand re-opening of Flawless next weekend. We have LOTS of goodies planned for you, you will not want to miss out on these, trust me. Okay, Lets take a look at more of the awesome work Kira has done!

The following shapes were all created for the newest line of skins from Fashioncentric Soda. The skins are young looking and the shapes that were created especially to go with each skin reflect that youthfulness. Though the shapes were created for the Fashioncentric Soda skin line, they all went through the rigorous skin tests that all Shapes by Kira shapes must pass. You can be sure that any skin you wear on these shapes will look fantastic.

First up we have Julia "The Sorority Sister" - Julia is sweet and preppy and ready for a pajama party with her girlfriends. She has a petite frame and a perky look. As the popular girl in college, she is the one that everyone wants to get to know.

Next is Kara "THE Princess" - Kara is a pretty princess that you read about in fairy tales. She likes pink and frilly things and always minds her manners. She is kind and attracts all the princes in the land. She is intelligent and has a love for all creatures great and small.

Then we have Alice "The Mistress" - Alice is the woman you don't want your partner to hire as his assistant. She looks as sweet and innocent as the girl next door. But deep down, she is on the hunt for her next big catch. She is tall and curvy in all the right places.

Last but not least is Cecily "The Vixen" - Cecily is the most popular shape created for the line. She is the woman that other women envy and men desire. She has a voluptuous body and kissable lips and the ability to wrap men around her finger with just a glance.

I'm really excited about the new Soda skins too. Okay kids, I will be back very soon with more info on the re-opening and what kinds of things you may find for FREE! I also am going to tell you about the other designers we have here at Flawless and maybe give you a sneak peek at some of their work - check back soon!!

Shaping Up Your Second Life

Welcome to our new blog here at Shapes By Kira

My name is Tesa Jewell and I will be your host or blogger or oh whatever you want to call it. *Giggles* I thought about how to write this blog a lot and finally decided that the blogs I most enjoy are the ones that just feel as if I am chatting with them, so, that is how I am going to do mine as well. :P Therefore, expect emotes and my sense of humor here and there. I am very excited to take on this job for several reasons but number one is all the great work I get to show you from the designers here at Flawless. Trust me, you are going to see some real goodies, and not just shapes. We have a wide range of items that I will show you in the coming weeks.

Our Current location at Flawless is preparing for the grand re-opening on our new build and we would like to invite all of you to join us! More on that to come, right now, I am going to start by showing you the work of the multi-talented Kira Paderborn owner of Shapes By Kira. She really makes awesome shapes, a very wide variety and diversity. You will find male and female shapes of all ethnic backgrounds as well as full avatar packages.

Okay, first up we have Madelyn

Clothes : Girlie -Independent

Originally designed for Fashioncentric Soda's Madelyn skin, Madelyn is young and cute and more petite than some of the other shapes you will find around Shapes by Kira. She is part of a new line that will be introduced to the ever growing shape collection at the main store with the re-opening of the Flawless sim. Right now, you can find Madelyn at Fashioncentric Soda, sold along side the Madelyn skins.

Next is Mims

Mims is very sexy and curvy. She looks great in almost any skin you put her in. Whether you are neko or vampire, faerie or human, Mims fits the look. She is pictured, here, in one of the most popular B&B skins but try her in skins from Good Morning Rainbow and Fashioncentric Soda too!
