some of them are old, some of them are new….

Ok…so.

Im a totally lame namer. My dogs, the 2 best things in my universe, are named Flopsy and Bratty. Well, theres something to be said for dumb names,  ok? So Marly, my retail guru, pointed out while making a new product, that just calling it the wicker chair was lame:

[18:52]  Marleen Vaughan: how about you name these like
[18:52]  Marleen Vaughan: Wicker Avenue (chair)
[18:52]  Marleen Vaughan: Wicker Avenue (couch)
[18:52]  Marleen Vaughan: Wicker Avenue (delux set)
[18:52]  Marleen Vaughan: like
[18:52]  Marleen Vaughan: name them after streets in New york or something
[18:53]  You: hmmm
[18:53]  You: i guess i cant go generic names forever
[18:53]  Marleen Vaughan: but there are too many furnitures and shit

And abbey chimed in also:

[20:03]  Abbey Underall: well what else could you call it? The Wicker Kicker? Wickity Wack Wee Wicker Wookie?

Well, pull out the wookie part. abbeys a bit too stars wars for her own good at times.

ok, so.. when we were furnishing the beach house,  i couldnt quite deal with just making yet another bean bag chair. sl is overflowing with sculptie blob beanbags right now. they breed like rats.  i was lusting after these chairs for a long time, and decided maybe we should have these instead. and so we have-

The Wicker Chair.
Lovingly sculpted from fine, err… sculpties, the wicker chair will look good in almost any decor. Click the base to change wicker colors, a choice of 3. click the cushion for a menu of cushion colors, a choice of 7438674982. well a lot, anyway.

Thats the sale pitch…

and the couch version. this has 2 sit places with animated poses, and all the color select stuff of the chair. Thanks for taking the ad photo Marleen. Thanks for the color change script, Haedon. Thanks for the sit target setter Allegory.

i went with a texture change for the wicker part, just throwing a color on top of a complicated texture like that looks a bit lom-may. this way it actually looked like bleached wicker thingers. what ever you call the sticks.

Also, 2 old products with new ads. the venerable Shark W.F.L.B.O.I.H. and the Portable TV.
