It's Kinitime!

I've got 4 hot hot hot new releases tonight...only available at CKS Designs @ The Deck!

So...any SL Designer will tell you that swimsuits (along with lingerie) are among the most frustrating pieces of clothing to make in SL. It might seem counterintuitive...after all they are tiny and thus shouldn't require much work, right? Wrong. They are evil little things that like to taunt you relentlessly with this little piece here...that little piece there...that still isn't. quite. right. I designed clothing for over a year in SL before I finally bit the bullet and made a serious go of making some swimwear...and every summer since, I've tackled them again...always starting from the ground up...always trying to improve on my last efforts. It's a fun challenge...and I'm happy to say that (after starting in June...and getting derailed by rw over and over) this year's are finally finished YAYYY!!!!

This year's are a varied bunch of 4 bikinis...and w/o any further yakkity yakking from me....let's get to them! I'm gonna go light on the piccies so you don't have to scroll thru a bunch to see 'em all...;)

'Sparklebum' is a sexy little string bikini with sequin accents and sculpted ties. It's a little glitz & glam and just the sort of thing for the girl who likes to be the center of attention. 8 sparkly colors are available. ;)

'Going Commando' is a skimpy little number all full of camoflauge-y & ruffly goodness...with sculpted ties & some fun color combos! I liked the combination of camo & ruffles...sort of girly yet not. Without doubt the least skin coverage of the 6 color combos:

The 'Dotty Bikini' (the last one made and prolly the least creatively named :P) is a cute bra-top style with criss cross straps in the back. Both top & bottom are accented with little gold's a very fun & girlie style that comes in 10 bright colors:

Andddd last but certainly not least is 'First Mate'...a nautical inspired bikini with prim ties & a teenie little cheerleader-style skirt. In 3 colors...this one is great for mixing & matching!

As I said at the beginning of the post (if you can remember that far back :P), these kinis are and will remain available exclusively at CKS Designs @ The Deck! So get on over there and enjoy some fantastic shopping in a beautifully designed sim!!

'Sparklebum' is $L170/single or $L680/pack of 8, 'Going Commando' is $L165/single or $L575/pack of 6, 'Dotty Bikini' is $L130/single or $L650/pack of 10, & 'First Mate' is $L190/single or $L330/pack of 3. Happy shopping!!! <33333
