I See Pigs Flying!

No really, I do... but regular readers know that already, and are welcome to go to the Studio and pick up their very own flying pig any time!


What I really mean by that title is that there must be something very wrong with the world, I have another new release for you! Please don't get used to this frequency, I'm pretty sure it's not sustainable at all. Anyway, here I am relaxing on my latest release after a bout of frantic hard work:

It's the usual story of how my products come to be. I was messing around in my Princess' room trying to make it nicer for him and decided that the old armchair had to go. Then I thought a chaise would be nice so started pulling out every chaise I own, and of course none of them would do, so I made one! The result is the texture changing Tempo Chaise, available in standard and PG (no sex) versions. You can go nuts and buy the All Colours one, or choose your favourite from Checks, Daisies, Leaves, Pansies and Roses. It is for dommes and designed to co-ordinate with both the Book Nooks and the Tempo Armchairs and is in store and on the marketplace right now!

You can see the texture options and some of the animations from the marketing pics, but I thought I might show you some of the Squirms menu here, for a change, as those didn't make the cut into the adverts.

If that whet your appetite, please do head over to the newly rearranged (it was getting a bit crowded and needed a re-shuffle!) Studio to test it out for yourself and see what you think. While you're there, don't forget to pick up the Summer 2017 store gift, right beside the flying pig.

I think that's the lot for now. Until next time, I do hope all your lives are treating you well,

Bright Blessings

What a night!

Hello! Just a really quick post to say an enormous THANK YOU to everyone who came to help me celebrate 6 years of Evelock on Saturday night. I had a blast and I hope you all did too. The amazing Antony took some great photos of the event, and you can check out the whole album here.

New releases coming soon for those of you who worry about such things... a piece designed to co-ordinate with the Book Nooks and the Tempo Armchairs, watch this space!

In the meantime, I do hope that all your lives are treating you well,

Bright Blessings,

Eve :)

PS This is what two very happy and tired people look like after a great party!

Happy Birthday to Evelock - Presents for Everyone!

Hello there!

On the third of July, 2011, I nervously opened my first "store" which was actually a panel in a friend's store, with a whole EIGHT products. I genuinely did not expect to still be here SIX YEARS later, with over a hundred and fifty products.

My eternal thanks are due to the wonderful Nova Lustre for encouraging me to get off my ass and start selling things, and for giving me the space to take those first tentative steps. It looked like this:

Six years on, it looks a bit more like this:

So, it's time for a PARTY! And a BIRTHDAY PRESENT! And a NEW RELEASE!

First things first... the Party: 

Date: Saturday 8th July 2017
Time: 3pm till 5pm SLT
Theme: Bitches and Sweethearts
DJ: Eve Terr

So the dress code is simple - dress like either a bitch or like a sweetheart. We can have fun guessing which is which! There will be a present for everyone who comes to the party. Not saying what it is, because that would ruin the surprise!

Next up, the NEW RELEASE:

It's summer, so I wanted to make something for outdoors that would brighten up a discerning domme's patio. And so the Birthday Lady's Chair and Sub Cushion Patio Set was born. Nice and simple, low land impact, and a range of comfy sits for a lady and her sub to arrange themselves nicely. Original prints on the cushions and clean contemporary lines should mean that it fits in just about anywhere. You can test them out in the Studio or if you feel impulsive, just go ahead and buy them either at the Studio, or on marketplace. Let's have a look!

And finally, the BIRTHDAY PRESENT:

In store right now, you can pick up an exclusive version of the Patio Set that will never be sold.

So that's the news. I do hope to see you on Saturday night for some fun chatter and dancing. In the meantime, I hope all your lives are treating you well,

Bright Blessings,

Eve :)

Rambling Roses


I bet you didn't expect to hear from me so soon, eh? To be honest, neither did I, but there was a party and I couldn't find the dress I wanted to wear, so I made one, which, in typical fashion, turned into six and here we are again!

This time, it's an elegant, slinky gown that hugs your curves with a nice swoosh of fabric around your ankles. I added some roses as optional brooches to provide a bit of flair and drama if that's your kind of thing. Just leave them off if not. No HUDS, nothing fancy, just a simple gown you put on and go - Slink Physique, Belleza, Maitreya Lara and Fitmesh XS to XL sizes are included in the pack. Priced to be affordable at a very reasonable 125L$.

If you're feeling particularly creative, have some fun with the brooches. Maybe wear them somewhere else, or rip them apart and use bits. You can also further personalise the gown itself by using the standard edit menu. But, please, please, PLEASE take a copy before you start so that you still have the original should it not go entirely according to plan.

I do hope you enjoy wearing this as much as I did making it, and that all your lives are treating you well. You can grab them in the usual ways, either in-world at the Studio, or on marketplace.

Bright Blessings

Willow Pattern Love

Hello there!

It's been a while, I do hope you're well. Life continues to be interesting for me, sometimes in the great way, and other times in the Chinese way. Speaking of Chinese, I have been madly in love with the world famous Willow Pattern for as long as I can remember and always intended to do something creative with it.

Well, I finally did! And, in my usual style, couldn't just stop there and made my own life complicated and more difficult. That, dear reader, is where you benefit because it means you get a wider choice than would otherwise be the case.

What am I rambling about? I made a chaise. Quick rant - it's a chaise longue, NOT a chaise lounge. It's French you see, and means "long chair". When there are more than one of them, they are chaises longues, NOT chaise lounges. One can indeed lounge on a long chair, but its name remains long chair, or chaise longue. Thank you, rant over,

Anyway, the design of the... ? Chaise Longue, quite correct! is strongly influenced by the lovely prints and patterns of the far east and I'm excited to share it with you. I could burble on at length about everything in it, but I really do think it would be much more fun if you just went to the store and tried one out for yourself.

In brief, it has 5 menus - 2 single menus containing 8 animations each, 1 Miss and Sub menu with 8 animations to remind the sub just who is in charge, 1 Snuggles menu with 8 animations to let a couple cuddle up during the tender moments, and 1 Squirms menu for when a couple wants to get a bit more steamy.

Let's talk about textures for a minute. If you buy a "single" colourway, you can colour each of the three parts of the chaise in any one of 4 provided textures,giving you a total of 64 possible combinations. If you buy the "All Colours" version, you get to choose from 13 textures for each part of the chaise, giving you over 2000 possible combinations!

Anyway, enough burble from me, I'm sure you have things to be doing. Please do pop over to the Studio and check out the new release. You can, of course, always head over to Marketplace too, right here. I do hope you enjoy it and that all your lives are treating you well,

Bright Blessings,

Eve :)

Happy Holidays!


The sillies got me, so I made a little something, then I thought it might be fun to script it up a little, so I did that too, then I thought I wonder if anyone else might enjoy this, so I decided to make it available to all my lovely Evelock customers as a little Holiday Gift.

What is it? Well, have a look:

A cheeky little Santa for you to spank! You get two versions in the green box. One on a wall, and one without a wall, so you can put him maybe over a chair back, or a table, or a hedge, or anywhere else that seems like a good idea to you.

Just pop over to the Studio and click on the green box to get your own, FREE, copy. Don't forget to check out the other free gifts and the Lucky Boards too!

While you're there, you might want to rest in the special holiday editions of the Tempo Armchair, each one is a mere 100L$, so might make a great gift for a holiday loving friend. 

I think that's all for now, I hope all your lives are treating you well,

Bright Blessings,

Eve :)

A Dainty Rant about Entitlement...

Hey There!

Every now and then I get to thinking about general trends in human behaviour, and occasionally a specific incident will prompt me to talk about it. This time, it's pretty simple stuff, communication and entitlement, particularly within a virtual environment, such as our wonderful Second Life.

In my mind, IMs in Second Life are exactly the same as phone calls. I am always happy to hear from friends, from work colleagues, from customers who need some assistance. But, I *never* want to buy double glazing or life insurance or a good time... sadly, a lot of folks in Second Life seem to think that just because you can see somebody's name tag that gives them the right to barge right in unannounced and offload THEIR agenda. It doesn't. End of story.

Let's pretend you see somebody and you think their outfit is amazing and you'd like to compliment them on it.  Now, in real life, you wouldn't yell across the room at them, would you? No, of course not, you're far too sensible. When was the last time you heard somebody yelling down the freezer aisle of the supermarket "Oi! Thingy! You in the red dress! Love the shoes, where did you get them?!" Never, that's when.

So, you wouldn't yell across the room at a complete stranger. Good, we agree on that. Would you phone them up out of the blue (assuming you could find their number in the first place)? No, of course not, that's ridiculous. Imagine how that conversation would go.

"Hi, you don't know me but I like your shoes."


If you were indeed so intent on delivering your doubtless well meaning compliment, you would get close enough to the person to talk normally without invading their personal space and say "Great shoes", with a smile, and wait to see what happens next.

And yet. Every. Single. Day. I get phonecalls (IMs) out of the blue from people I have never met. Let me be clear here, approach makes a huge difference.

"Hi, sorry to IM you out of the blue, but I really love your shoes, do you mind me asking where you got them?" is far more likely to get a pleasant response from me than...

"NICE outfit babe"

What happens next is where it gets interesting. I state clearly in my profile that I am happy to hear from folks in IM about business matters (either Velvet Thorn or Evelock related) but for anything else to use local. And further that unsolicited IMs will be ignored without exception.

People don't always read profiles, I understand that. But, if I IM someone and don't get a response I check their profile to see if there's maybe a clue in there. Lots of builders are afk huge amounts of the time for example, no big deal. I'm starting to think I might be alone in checking profiles, but hey ho.

So let's talk about entitlement. And let's be blunt about it.

Nobody, not one single person on the surface of the planet has any entitlement to even a second of my attention without express and direct invitation, or a damn good and compelling reason (spoiler alert: you needing to have me be your walking wank mag is not a compelling reason, nor a good one). And that goes double for a virtual world, where I tend to come to ESCAPE being bothered by people.

If I'm about to be run over and yelling at me might stop it, go ahead and shout, I will appreciate it. If I'm sitting quietly on my own, or wandering around some place on my own (brace yourselves, this may come as a shock)... this is NOT an invitation to talk to me, to project your nasty, selfish little fantasies onto me, to invade my personal space and expect me to be flattered by your attention, to suggest that I might want to fuck you or dance with you or "just have a friendly drink" with you.

Just NO. Fuck off. Fuck right off. And when you're done fucking off, fuck right off again, twice as far. And no, that is not a challenge. I am not waiting for the right person to complete me. I am not secretly hoping that someone will shake me out of my bad mood and make me the woman I "should" be. I am complete and content exactly as I am, thank you, I only need people to stop being idiotic, rude, entitled louts in my direction for my life to be perfect.

If you really can't let the moment pass without doing something, smile, or say hi... but do not make the mistake of *expecting* a response. And, if you do get a response, most likely  an awkward half-smile, that (again, brace yourselves) is NOT an invitation to move onto the sleaze fest I just described. It means I acknowledged your presence, that's all, nothing more. Believe me when I say that if I am interested in you or what you have to say you will know about it.

Here are a few clues... I might put down what I'm looking at and make eye contact. I might say "Hi, nice day." I might ask how you are. If I do none of these things, I. AM.NOT. INTERESTED. Go the fuck away and leave me the hell alone.

I hope that's clear. Thank you so much for your time and attention. If you think this might help someone you know, feel free to share it. If you think it might help someone who is bothering you and needs to learn this, feel free to print it out, wrap it round a brick and hit them over the head with it (Joking! No, not really, well, okay, yes joking, but you know it would be so satisfying).

I hope all your lives are treating you well,

Bright blessings, Eve :)
