Do I get a fatpack or some single poses?


I hope you haven't missed me that much, because I have been kind of busy doing something to show you all. As posted previously you know that I am going to talk about some of the new poses that are going to be released, the ones I love the most.

I will start with this pose number 6 from the fatpack of Carmen Kass, our super smart intenational model ;)

Carmen Kass 06

I love the way the right arm is up, and immediately I thought on an embarassing emotion, you know when you do something nasty ;) and how the legs are positioned gives it kind of inocent girl look... this is a perfect pose for causing trouble.

My second picture is Carmen Kass 01

Carmen Kass 1

Sexy, radiant, the queen of the city, this pose says all... if you are looking for that perfect shot, full of unique style ... Carmen Kass 1 is the pose you want!

Thats all for now, and I really hope you like them as much as I do. Don't forget that all thr new release are always in the middle of our main store and there are also lots of dollarbies and sales from others releases that you can have for half price!

Have a nice Thursday!

Pose - Audrey Kitching #5
Wearing -
Illicit from Ali Couture

Wow...this would have to be one of the sexiest gowns I have seen in a long time! With stunning contrasts of black and white, its the perfect dress for any special occasion, expesially one where you want to knock everyone's socks off! The bodice connects to the skirt with a sexy chain detail and its completely backless! The low cut skirt is guaranteed to drive any man crazy for you! With it comes the gorgeous bangles and a stunning pair of earrings. It really is the must have gown for your inventory!

Pose - Sarah Michelle Gellar #10
Wearing -
Uu La La from Ali Couture

For the professional woman on the go, or the serious fashionista who wants to look classy and elegant when shopping, Uu La La from Alia Couture is the dress for you! Again Alia uses black and white contrasting patterns to make a simple dress spectacular. The collar accentuates the open neckline of the dress and the wide belt is a perfect finishing touch. Earrings and two gorgeous rings come with this outfit.

New from Body Doubles this week come two more great shapes! For the men, Ashton Kutcher! From the loveable ditz in That 70s Show through to Punk'd, Ashton has many looks, but is most famous for marrying his much older "cougar", Demi Moore. And for the ladies who don't want to be yet another SL Barbie Doll, Body Doubles has the quirky and edgy Juliette Lewis. One of the most versatile actresses of her generation, Juliette has featured in over 40 movies in her career to date and isn't slowing down now. This is one gorgeous shape, so check her out! As always, styling tips come in the pack to help you make your avi look like the display picture.

Gillions of dollarbies at Striking Poses


Friday is finally here and the weekend has just started, how nice, well for me it is like a normal day, how I stay at home now :P

So so ... here we go with the dollarbies to finish the week with.

We have this lovely girl called Anne Hathaway, and you can buy her pose for 1L! I like this pose very much because it's another kind of stand that says "worry" ... it is when you make a mistake and say "I shouldn't do that" but ... in my case, I never regret what I have done in my life

Anne Hathaway Dollarbie

Zelly never forgets the boys and that is why she has this awesome dollarbie based on Marlo Brando, this time I had to ask my lovely Spad to pose for me, and well ... here it is, my georgious man in a fabulous pose. The legs almost crossed and the head in a kind of "are you talking to me babe?" makes this pose really cool and interesting.


My third selection is not based on a celebrety, but that doesn;t mean it's not a good pose! in fact ... it is really good! A friend said to me "that pose is hot" so ... what do you think? .... beggin for mercy? or being a naughty girl?

Sexy Kneel Dollarbie

Okay, I hope you like all the poses, I really don't know what else to show you and I am hoping our dear Zelly will come back soon ... because I'm running out of ideas!!! (anyway I'm too much smart not to come up with new ideas xD)

And I hope I can tell you all about our project soon, because with Jordy we can not keep the secret no longer!! ... but don't put pressure on us or we'll tell all and then we'll be fired XD

Don't forget, if you are missing some old dollarbie?, Then don't forget that you can find them all at XStreetSL!

Ake! :3

Almost the end of another week here...and we're getting closer and closer to our big surprise! I know I can't wait to let you all in on it!

But before then, I have some more fab stuff from our Boutique Stores.

Pose - Nicole Scherzinger Lucky Chair
Wearing -
Monique ($149) from Jazmyn D

Every woman needs a little black dress in her inventory for wowing everyone when she goes out. The Monique from Jazmyn D isn't just affordable, its cute and sexy too. The lace halter top gives it an extra oomph and takes a simple strapless black minidress and makes it elegant and sexy! You will certainly have all eyes on you when you wear this to your next big occasion.

We have a sexy menswear store with us at Striking Poses now. Welcome Karnal Rage! Full of sexy streetwear and clothing for the urban warrior, this is one store i could spend some time just standing around drooling in. Ah the advantages of being single! I'm not so good at lining up my shots yet, so I have a wonky screenshot of The Hidden, a warrior kilt ($99) outfit that is just yummy! If you like your man to have some edge to his wardrobe, send him to Karnal Rage and he'll be looking good!

Body Doubles has done it again! From the age of 5 till her death at 43, Natalie Wood was one of the rare child stars who managed to continue working into adulthood. She is famous for her roles in such films as Miracle on 34th Street, West Side Story and Rebel Without A Cause. Embrace the Summer of Love with the 70s Natalie Wood shape. All styling details come in the pack to help you make your avatar look like the picture.

We have a few vacancies at the Striking Poses mainstore if you are interested in joining us. $200/week gets you 50 prims in your own little Boutique Store.

Do you want some Dollarbies?


I must tell you before I start I am falling alseep, I ended up going to bed at 4am. I spend all night chatting with some friends from Taiwan they just love to spend their time chatting with me, but I guess I'm the same *giggles* then I was woken up at 9am to hand out my CV to a company.. so I'm really sleepy :p

Here I am with my pictures and my ideas for you all to copy. As promised I bring you some of the dollarbies that are ready to be bought by you at our Main Store and the best part ... they are all 1L!

My first picture is the Monica Bullucci dollarbie, classic and elegant pose, with both arms at the back.This pose can easily be used for models or designers to show their entire suit.

Monica Belluci

My Second picture is using the Donna Summer pose, also in our main store and also costs 1L! ... This pose is different to the typical stand ones, the head looks up as though you were looking at the sky, and the hands are in front of the stomach, making this pose so lovely and natural.

Donna Summer

And finally, my last choice for today is the pose based on Coco Roche, this pose is one of the orignal and extremely well made, just look at the hands and legs, the position of them are so straight and make the pose look special. In my opinion, this pose is perfect for original shots.

Coco Rocha

If you are new or a person that wants to try different and original poses, this is your chance to get these fabulous dollarbies and realise how great the poses from Striking Poses are.

See ya tomorrow my lovely fellow ladies.

XOXO ... Ake!

Back With Boutique Goodness!

Things have been all over the place lately. There's the top secret project we're all busy working on, as well as surprises for you all. Not to mention I keep forgetting what day it is in SLT so I keep missing my blogging days! Zelly's sending me to the naughty corner as soon as I'm done here.

Pose - Angelina Jolie #2
Wearing -
Delicious from Jazmyn D

I've just moved to a new Sim and I'm having fun exploring and making a new home for myself. On my travels I found the perfect spot for showing off the new lingerie from Jazmyn D. It has a gorgeous corset with a silver heart detail above the bow and adorable tiny pair of panties. Its the perfect set of the playful woman who wants to tempt her partner.

New from Body Doubles this week comes an icon! Born in 1923, Bettie went on to become the pin up and fetish model of the 1950s. With her trademark bangs and sultry looks, Bettie went on to inspire and influence many artists. If you love old fashioned glamour and style, then the Bettie Page shape is the one for you. Along with it someone a style card so you can make over your avatar to look like the picture on the box.

New from DollyRock this week is Calista. A sexy tank with gorgeous trim detailing, jeans with matching patches and a hat make up this sexy and casual outfit that is perfect for a lazy summer day hanging out in the park or walking along the beach. It comes in 5 wonderful colours, so there is bound to be the one for you. If you haven't checked out DollyRock's new home, what are you waiting for? It has a rainforest complete with a hidden grotto for photo opportunities, Paradise blankets for you to use alone of with a special someone and the shopping is incredible.

Don't forget to keep checking in for more fab poses from the archives, dollarbies, photo ideas and teases about the surprise we have in store.

Inside our Lucky Chair

Alreet pet?!

Today I bring you all some nice pictures using the poses from the lucky chairs, I wanted to show you how good these poses actually are and how easy you can create the most fantastic pictures or to put them on your hud (something that I always remind you to do ).

I went ahead and chose 5 of them to show you.

Lets start with Pose number 9 based on Vanessa Paradise, a lovely pose, the hand on the face makes it a delicate and feminine stand.

pose 09

The next poses are really good to make some sexy look, my first choice was to make a doble shoot, 2 girls posing in one picture.

pose 1 and 28

If you like this poses, take a note:
Pose at the left (black dress) is number 1 based on Anna Netrebko, and
Pose at the right (white jacket) is number 28 based on Nicole Scherzinger

The next one I needed my boyfriend's help, he is kind of shy boy so doesn't like to be in pictures, and don't talk about THIS kind of pictures (to be honest, I must take the shots quietly, if not, he will never pose for me *giggles*)

pose 19

This is pose number 19 based on Stephanie Seymour, a very nice pose, so provocative and why not to say ... sexy.

pose 14

My last picture is pose number 14 based on Tila Tequila, This pose is a very fresh one and really well done, I just modify the idea of the original picture and did this sexy shot to show you that the poses from Striking poses can be used in many different ways.

So my dear fellow girls, I hope you enjoy these Striking Lucky Chair Poses and come to the our main store and wait for yours.

See ya soon!!

XOXO .. Ake!

Do you know what is in our Lucky Chair?


How are our lovely girls doing on this fine Tuesday evening? Me? I’m being a strong girl after receiving some bad news yesterday evening. I’m determined to overcome anything that this world throws at me :)

As you are probably all aware our dear Zelly is still out and about, but when she arrives back she’ll be bringing you all an amazing surprise *giggles*

Meanwhile I will show you some of the random poses that you can win at the Lucky Chair. Last Sunday I showed 2 of them in our "Mother's day" post (I must apologize about my spelling, I don’t know what happened *blushes*)

The one that Jordan was posing with was Tara Reid Pose 17, and I was posing with the Stacy Kleiber Pose 20.

So now ... if you liked them, you will love the next 2 poses that I want to show you, they are really fresh and are so much fun to use and see them.

Lucky Chair poses 25 and 30

To your left is pose number 30 Kate Hudson and to your right is pose 25 from Reese Witherspoon.

Have fun with them and I wish you good luck to have all the 30 poses :D

Yay New Week!!!!!

Its a new week, and one I am looking forward to. My drama llama has been well and truly bbq-ed and life will be drama-free for this bunch of pixels from now on!

Lets see what I have found for you from the Striking Poses Boutique Stores this week.

Pose - Adriana Lima #4

From Body Doubles I have the super sexy supermodel Adriana Lima! This Brazilian beauty is a mix of French, Portugese, Native American and Caribbean. Her stunning curves will make any woman look amazing!!! With the shape you receive the styling card so you can look like a supermodel too, or just add your own style to it and make your own unique look for it.

Pose - Audrey Kitching #10
Wearing -
Military Salute ($149) from Jazmyn D

You'll be ready to invade and take over any Sim in this stunning outfit from Jazmyn D. Sexy booty shorts are teamed up with a flyaway tank top and helmet in a classic camo print. You'll stand out at any Camo Event or look great for manoveurs with someone special. Don't forget to check out the Jazmyn D mainstore for more special deals, Midnight Mania and the Discovery Hunt.

Pose - Audrey Kitching #9
Wearing -
Anita ($250) from DollyRock

DollyRock has opened a new store on their Sim and its seriously wonderful! I had a great time looking around it on the weekend. Unfortunately I missed the opening party. Timezones being what they are, it was at around 4am my time and I was off dreaming about...well lets get back to the fabulous DollyRock. The Anita was the opening freebie, but its now being offered for sale. A strapless column melts down the body and a trainlike skirt adds a sexy touch. It looks great when you walk and so special when you are off dancing with your someone special. Don't forget to check out the incredible winning pictures from the DollyRock/photoLIFE competition. Congrads to all who entered and to those who took the top awards.

Zelly is back hard at work in her workshop this week and I am certainly looking forward to what she surprises us with this week! I'm sure its going to be spectacular!

Don't forget to check out the older poses that Ake has been reminding us of and the awesome dollarbies in the centre of the store. They are also available on XStreet!

Pose with Paris

Good Evening!

I will get stuck right in and start with my pictures, why you ask? Well, I’ve been a busy little girl and made four of them for you all to see! I don’t normally do this but this week’s all the poses are just stunning and I got carried away when I was writing the review for them., just a shame I couldn’t do them all.

Onwards we go, this post is based on the Paris Hilton poses, and I’m going to start with pose number 4, this is one of three of the stand poses available.

Paris Hilton 4

Using my imaginations and my creative mind I decided to take this pose and wear this lovely Lolita dress, with this dark background. Doesn’t it just scream “Should I do it?” with a guilty attitude, don’t you think? I like how the hand goes up behind the head and the legs, makes the pose look rather cute like a little girl standing up.

Paris 4

My next choice was pose number 10.

Paris Hilton 10

When I first saw this pose the first thing that came to mind was how casual, relaxing and fresh this pose looks, and I thought it would be perfect for the kind of shots I produced. Maybe it's a nice idea for you to copy and produce a new picture for your home :)

Paris 10

Next up is pose number 3.

Paris Hilton 3

Okay, I must confess that when I saw this picture I thought immediately on my boyfriend Spad, isn't it a great idea to surprise your partner with while wearing sexy underwear or a sexy dress? ... I think this pose can be used not just for a simple shot, don't you? It is sexy and elegant, mmm how does it look if you use it over the bed? ... What a nice surprise gift for your man ;)

Paris 3

OKay, this is my last choice, Paris Hilton Pose Number 7

Paris Hilton 7

This is another sexy pose that has many uses and not just for shots. What about sitting over your boss desk with hot outfit? ... That is what came to my mind. I think that Zelly really took that essence from Paris's photo, the legs are really well made, hands and torso are in a perfect position , I really like this pose, provocative and sensual.

Paris 7

Okay my fellow Ladies, I hope you liked my selection from Paris Hilton Collection, don't forget that it’s an old collection, so if you like them, you have to look over the Modern celebrities posters.

I want to thank to two people who helped me make these shots, one is Cerberus Noel, my best friend in SL, she is the owner of *G Field* she gave me the pink dress "*GF* Frilly Mini Dress "Dolly" for this shot, it’s a new release and is already out in stores.

The other girl who helped me was Marie Ruggles, who is the owner of "Elle er Lui _ Monte Carlo" store and she has made those fabulous boots "Cuissardes Emo Goth_Black" that you can see in the picture with pose 7. Wondering why I want to thank her? It's simple.. the boots you see me wearing were specially made to fit my leg shape, just for me!!! how awesome was that of her? So a big thanks to both Cerberus and Marie! THANK YOU!

Friday On My Mind...

Its been one heck of a week, and I am so glad its almost over! Its definitely one I will be happy to see the back of.

My life might have been suckful this week, but the new stuff at the Striking Poses Boutique Stores have been anything but!

Inset - Stud Lip Ring from Core
Cuppycake Lounger
from Core

Thank you to Kristya from Core for bouncing over to my place this morning and taking these awesome pics for me! The lip ring is fabulous! With the Monroe beauty spot piercings either side on the top lip and a labret one under the ring which pierces the bottom lip. There's a nose piercing too, but you cannot see due to the picture angle. Another new release is the Cuppycake Lounger which comes with 8 built in sitting poses. Yummeh!!!!! I could just dive on in and nom this all up! Its a fabulous novelty item from Core! Also added to the Core mainstore Lucky Boards is a new and exclusive, never to be sold in the store, pair of Heartz Short Shortz! These kick serious (no pun intended, or maybe it is) butt!

Pose 1 - Dita Von Teese #5
Pose 2 - Doutzen Krous #6
Wearing -
Covet (Discovery Hunt Gift) from Pout

I mentioned the fabulous Covet in Lilac from Pout in Monday's blog. Its not on sale in the shop and is a hunt exclusive, till the end of the month anyway. Here's your chance to grab it for free before anyone else can even buy it! It comes in 3 skirt styles; long and elegant, slanted and playful and sexy there is something for every occasion.

Pose - Audrey Kitching #7
Wearing -
Django`s Cat from Medusa's Joy

I have an interesting and playful outfit this week for you from Medusa's Joy. Complete with scripted tail, cap, full loaded belt and even a should rat friend, this is sure to make you stand out in a crowd. Don't forget to check out Medusa's Joy for more wonderful and unusual designs.

Fresh off the block at Body Doubles is Jennifer Aniston. Now some might fancy her, or be on Team Aniston...I just wish she would stop whining about Brad. Its been years!!! Get over it already! Regardless, its yet another stunning shape from Body Doubles. I don't know how they do it, but time after time, they get it right! With the shape, you get a style card with skin, hair, eyes and everything else you need to make your Avi look like the stunning picture on the board.

Hope you have had a better week! I'm looking forward to the weekend thats for sure. Zelly will be back with us and I don't know about you all, but I have missed her and her fabulous new releases. You can still check out all the previous pose goodness at the Striking Poses Mainstore or on XStreet. There's also a flickr page to show off your creative uses for them.

Get Paris NOW!!!

Heyyy!!! How’s everyone doing?

I hope all of you have been having a good week, for me it’s been really busy but I have to say it’s been a great week so far. I no longer have a RL job, so that’s meant this week I’ve managed to focus on my personal stuff some of which is needs to be dealt with urgently … All I need is luck, so girls please wish me luck!

This week we don’t have a new release, but I do have some of the older releases that I’m sure you will all love. I had named this week’s star in lasts week post, I hope you all remember? If not, well today we have Paris Hilton. I have chosen her, as I just love the poses Zelly had produced based on her, the sitting poses are just.. well.. awesome, Zelly has taken the best out of this girl and voila this is what you have:

Paris Hilton Fatpack

The fat pack not only contains sitting poses (7 of them!) but also contains 3 lovely standing poses. On Friday I will post some of my ideas for using these poses and you will realise how simple and fascination it can be to have a Paris in your life.

Don't forget all members of our group will enjoy the fantastic gifts Zelly has every month for you, or of course the weekly dollarbie or be one of the happy winners with the "weekly drawing" with fabulous new releases as prize.

Oh ... I hope you had all been able to stop at our boutiques, they have lots of lovely things that you should see (and purchase!), and the prices are super cheap! I just bought some nice pants that I wore for a Fashion Show last week, I looked stunning!

Some Goodies For Monday!

Its the start of yet another week...and are they flying by or am I just imagining it? Its May already! Its gonna be Christmas again before you know it!

Pose - Jean Shrimpton #7
Inset Pose - Liv Tyler #3
Wearing -
Fusion ($250) from Pout

I was distracted by something shiny last week and totally forgot to share with you this absolutely gorgeous dress from Pout. It can work in so many ways, as a playsuit with the shorts, as a slim knee length dress or with the shorter flippy skirt that has great movement and is sure to get you noticed! You could even wear the top with jeans or a pair of smart trousers. The fabric is amazing! I love the silky sheen and oriental feel of the design on it. There's 8 colours to choose from, this blue is my favourite though. Pout is also in the Discovery Hunt with Covet as your gift in an exclusive colour not available for sale until after the hunt is over.

Inset Pose - Jean Shrimpton #9

Ritzy (Midnight Mania Prize) from Jazmyn D
Pose - Maxim Shannon Elizabeth
Wearing -
Discovery Hunt Gift ($0) from Jazmyn D

What I love about hunts is the little extras you find in stores along the way. At Jazmyn D I found the Midnight Mania board, so I slapped it and got my name into the draw and luckily so did 99 other people, cos look what I received at midnight! You cannot go past a lovely sparklie dress, especially one in such a vibrant shade of red! On the back is a heart shaped cutout which gives it a lovely touch. After slapping the board, I found the Discovery Gift. Called tasty, you receive a lovely vest top with a cute little design on the bodice and a skirt which can be worn with or without the tights.

Pose 1 - Catrinel Menghia #10

Blue Moon (Group Gift) from Ali Couture
Pose 2 - Eva Mendes #4
Wearing -
Discovery Hunt Gift ($0) from Ali Couture

From our other new Boutique Store, Ali Couture, come two sexy, fun and flirty outfits and best of all, they are Ali's gifts to you. If you love corset tops as much as I do, you'll love the Blue Moon one. It comes with a lacey little skirt, but will look just as fabulous with jeans. Join the group for more gorgeous gifts and to keep updated on the designs. The Discovery Hunt gift is just plain sexy! You'll be sexonlegs when you wear this stunning outfit. The cross over top is gorgeous and daring and the miniskirt is just the finishing touch it needs. I had a wonderful time checking out the mainstore when I was hunting down the magnifying glass and have the most naughty lusties for one of Ali Couture's evening gowns. Pop on in and see if you can pick which one.

Hearts N Hands Pasties (tba) and Short Shortz (previously blogged) from Core
Kitty Couch
($175) from Core
Background -
Grunge Florals (Midnight Mania) from Core

Ok are those pasties just the coolest things ever or what? Little pink heart hide your important bits while big black hands cover the rest! I think they are just so much fun! Perfect for those "Barely There" events too or just for teasing your partner. They look great with the shorts too! I love cats! When I saw this at the Core mainstore, it was an immediate purchase. Its nice having a big friend you can cuddle up with and I tend to do that a lot lately. Also when I was there, I slapped Core's Midnight Mania board and wo0t! I received a pack of 10 cute Grunge Floral textures! I've used them for cushion textures in my house and even photo surrounds. They are so versatile. I've transparented (is that even a word?) the one I used by 50% and it still looks fab!

Don't forget the rest of the fabulous stores up on the third floor of the Striking Poses Mainstore. Take a teleport or brave the stairs!
