Epicene Round II

Epicene is upon us again and just about to start (10th May)
Following on from my previous release at this event "Nothing is random", I've decided to continue my exploration in architectural and sculptural form by making this set of Art Wings.

While the items come in sets of pre-textured groups (Whites, Blacks,Golds) they are set with modify permissions so it is possible for you to add your own colours or even modify the basic shapes and sizes of the wings.
Ultimately, the idea is to give you creative freedom with how you wish to interract with these pieces for you to document/perform as you like.
Thank you for reading!

Latest from Oddfish Studios

Genre Belle Epoque
For Genre's Belle Epoque round.
It has been a while since I've had the chance to sit down and write again. So whilst I will catch up on my flickr posts - I wanted to write about some of the things that I have been making for a few events around the Grid. The latest being for Genre, which just opened today and for which I have decided to launch my telescopic cigarette holders in two lengths "Maxi" which is 22cm and "Ultra" which is 44cm.

Genre Belle Epoque
Both cigarettes come with a smoking animations hud with priority 3 animations.

A separate pack of 12 static smoking poses have also been created to go with this exclusive launch!
I had made this prop for my shoot of a few posts back :

Behind The Scenes : Let's Party like its 1929

" Let's Party Like It's 1929"
Pose by Anlar Poses from Anais mini series pack out @ Shiny Shabby (Feb 2016)
When I received the blog pack from Bampu Legacies for "The Great Gatsby Headdress", of course I just had to write about it!

Art Deco and Art Nouveau are some of my favourite periods in art and coincidentally - as one of my (many) side projects; I'd been fabricating some hand-drawn art deco style "Great Gatsby" inspired wallpaper which is what I've used in the background to these images.

Bambi is such a creative designer who lavishes so much detail on all of her projects and this one is no exception with it's jewelled/embroidered rosettes, feathers and sparkling gem stones. Perfect for every chic flapper living it up in virtual 1920's.

Complimenting this lovely headpiece are the beautiful organically shaped set of "Sile" earrings by Kunglers.
"Sile" available as a new release @ Shiny Shabby

Well, I think I can take my "Blogging" hobby to extremes sometimes - when I have an idea in mind on a sort of image I want to create but cannot find the items I need to make this happen, I make these props myself; which is how this dress and telescopic cigarette holder came to be.

I'll have a mini rant here about the idea that "bloggers" are free loaders begging for free stuff.
This really infuriates me because to reach this point (writing this blog) has been a labour of love with hours invested in creating the dress (2+ hrs), the cigarette (2+ hrs), the look , the shoot and pose (many more hours) - and that's not even including how long it takes for me to sit down and gather my thoughts to compose a blog entry in itself. This culture of misunderstanding really makes me shy away from applying to blog for anyone. *mumbles*

Sometimes I am frustrated at myself for being "trapped" by details - I have this need to get it just so... and this cigarette holder is a good example. I just could not seem to find one on marketplace with the exaggerated length and telescopic detail I wanted in the design like so :

A silly thing that S. finds endearing about me and I find annoying in myself because in the end who is going to look at these details in my image? (Laughs) But you know how it is... I would know and so that is that :
The cigarette itself is made with laid paper and is signed "Oddfish"
This is actually a tribute to
Sobranie Cocktail Cigarettes
My Telescopic Cigarette Holder
I imagine it to have been hand turned ebony,
tipped and capped with embellished silver and set diamonds for silly sparkle
Iconic objects have that sort of faff.

Screen captured details of my outfit as is.

News : Oddfish Studio is Migrating

I received news this morning from my landlord that the parcel I rent for Oddfish Studio will need to be vacated. Moving is always difficult both in SL and RL!

However, it gives me a chance to revisit the design of my store and a new location which is always exciting! I will update you guys on how I get on with this but meanwhile a temporary place is being set up at

If you happen to pop by do forgive the mess as I put together a better store soon!
Meanwhile - to make up for the inconvenience, my MP products will have a moving sale of 20% off!

My first 2016 release! Oddfish Landmark To SLURL Translator Pin.

Yes I'm afraid the geeky rather than arty me has decided to have a go at making something which I hope will make your SL Blogging and Event Co-coordinating experiences that much easier! Converting a list of Landmarks to SLURL's is something I do almost everyday for blogging, but recently I was given a notecard for an event with some 60 Landmarks to participating designer booths. The idea of having to look up each landmark for their URL's was far too daunting a thought (and I know other people must do so much more!)

I had a look for something to convert LM's to SLURL's  but couldn't really find what I was looking for and so with the help of a superscriptor friend, I have come up with this solution.
Currently I have released it on Marketplace as early access for 20 participants at a very low price.
It will also be available to buy in store in final release.

The Oddfish Studio Landmark To SLURL Translator Pin
A useful gadget for anyone who needs to convert a batch of LM's to SLURL's quickly!
I've also created a Product Support page - thought it might be a good idea.
I'll keep adding and refining the way information is provided here.

So if you feel that this gadget might be useful to you, pick it up for a steal on

Enjoy your Second Life <3
