Yep, we're still beavering away behind the scenes, trying to get all our tatts updated with the new huds. Today it we tackled two tatts, we decided to take it a little slow since we've been working none stop this past week:
First up was actually the first ever tattoo that we released in-world way back when we began, a little promo couples tatt called "One Heart", unlike the rest of our tattoos, this one has a male and female tattoo that are both transferable, so it's an easy wee gift to pass on to your partner:
The second Tatt to get the update treatment was "Ancient Lines", the first of the few (for now) sternum tatts, and one of the most popular tatts we've released to date:
But...that aint all, we managed to get a couple of updates done on the QT yesterday, just kinda sneaking them in there for you all.
"Ripley's Butterfly" was a must, this tattoo is in a constant battle for the top spot as the most popular tatt ever with Wolf Moon and Izzy under the Sea, and, also, named after our Daughter,, bet you didn't know that eh? Either way it was long over due for an update:
The updates don't stop there, we couldn't do Izzy under the Seas and Ripley's Butterfly without bringing the third main competitor for top tatt up to date as well, yep, "Wolf Moon" has been updated, new hud, demo and a sexy new Vendor like the rest:
And last but not least, to bring all the normal tatts down stairs up to date we completed "Feel the Music", one of our special fatpacks featuring 2 separate tatts in 3 shades
...and, if that's not enough for you all, there's a cool new group gift up stairs in the gift and promo section for you all :)
For the past while we have been quietly thinking about where our future as RBT would be, as you know, we've moved a store a few times, and each time we've grown in size. Our home at Flawless was perfect, but it's starting to feel a little small for us, who knew eh?
Well, we started to talk tentatively about where we would go or how we could expand, and then it happened, we had no immediate plans to move, maybe a month or two down the road. But then it happened, that opportunity that only a fool would let pass by.
So, now we have partnered up with Arora Zanzibar of Zanzibar CreationZ (you may remember that it was Arora that created our new sexy sign) and taken our own empty plot of land at Havendale Village. Doing this has given us more freedom than we've had before so we were understandably excited. We bought ourselves a fancy new Mesh shop, and within about 5 hours we had moved in, and got set up. It was a crazy day, but we're damn proud of our new, bigger home for RBT.
There is still some work to be done around the outside of the store, some prettying up as Melissa calls it, but that work is down to the staff at Havendale who will be landscaping the parcel to fit with out stores, which we're equally excited about seeing how it looks
Come down and check us out, we have coffee and donuts, tunes, and loads of tatts!
So much has been happening this past week, honestly can't believe how busy we have been, in the space of about four days we have managed to create four brand new tattoos, three of which you can see down below, two new free gifts, brand new vendors in both of our stores, updated our Izzy under the Sea tattoos, and last but not least, taken delivery of our sexy new Mesh sign created by the brilliantly talented Arora Zanzibar
So, first up, our new in store release, my personal fave so far, "Phoenix"
As always it comes with Maitreya, Slink, Omega, Belleza and eBody appliers as well as layers for classic avatars, and of course, there's a demo so you can all try before you buy
Ripley Bay Tattoos Main Store
Next up we have our event release, "Painted Leopard". It comes in two variations, a colour version and a black and white version, and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Omega, Belleza, eBody and Classic avatars, and demos are available.
You can catch this at the Avangarde event where we have the two completely free gifts for you all
As I metioned we have also updated our Izzy under the Sea collection to include Belleza and eBody appliers along side Maitreya, Slink and Omega, we've sent updates to everyone who has bought this and re designed the vendors to make em a bit more sexy as well
And yes, we have finally taken that big step and got ourselves a sexy new sign and landmark giver, we haven't put these out yet, since we literally just received them from the creator Arora, but they'll be going out at Avangarde pretty soon, since we are both super excited about it all, like kids at Christmas. A huge thank you to Arora Zanzibar for her fantastic modelling work on these, watch this space for pics!
None of the above would have been possible if it wasn't for Melissa coming on board and taking some of the pressure off with creating huds for all these, working together as a team has made us work like a well oiled machine, so expect many more updates and new releases in the coming weeks.
A big personal thank you to my amazing wife Melissa, couldn't do this without you babe, love ya ♥
