In 2007, two role-players, Eclipse Lykin & Bryce Randt, found their way into Second Life to see what possibilities were available to those with an open mind and a thirst for excitement. What they found was that they had very specific ideas of what looked good on an avatar…what facilitated their role-play and made immersion an effortless experience.
Now, years later, their critical eye for aesthetic perfection aids in the designing of Second Life’s most detailed and versatile designs. With time have come skills that encompass nearly every area of Second Life content creation. With Eclipse & Lykin’s varied role-play and gaming backgrounds, Eclipse Development constantly evolves with the needs of its customers. Eclipse Development will continue to grow and help you, our customers, “Realize your Roleplay.”
Her designs cover a range of truly original styles, letting you live your Medieval Fantasy, or enjoy being whisked around a modern-day Ballroom in a Gown crafted to inspire your imagination. Evangeline’s work incorporates all original, hand-drawn textures, and each Gown is painstakingly constructed to ensure maximum wearability and quality.
Layja Vidor, founder and owner of EXXESS Designs, uses SL as a creative platform to let her mind flow while studying computing and design in rl. She’s found her niche in creations inspired by MMORPG worlds full of warriors and magic, leaving the boring jeans and t-shirts aside.
One will find her shop full of sexy clothes with high detailed jewelry, necklaces, sculpted heels, piercings, diadems, arm-bands and more. Layja also finds strength in hair creation, from straight to wavy styles giving it’s wearer the independence to move as much as possible which makes it look realistic.
EXXESS Designs catch slogan that truly embodies it’s emotion is… Are You Sexy Enough?
Diorsis Hair Design, is the work of RL hairdresser and wig designer Safia Ellen Sieslack, Diorsis Rossini in SL. Running her hair salon by day, Second Life is a place for her to showcase her work and creativity by night.
Diorsis gives each style a unique touch and her ornate detail can be seen within each fine hair. She specializes in short hair, offered in many different styles and colors, and updo’s designed as you would for a rl evening out.
BabyBoo Glitterbuck, the designer behind Here Comes Trouble, started designing in SL from the ground up. Finding herself homeless in the sandbox she quickly learned that everything in SL is made by it’s residents and the need for Lindens. Commonly found on a grass platform up to her neck in prims, BabyBoo started building anything and everything before she found her comfort in clothing and hair.
Driven by her passion for designing, she still gets excited seeing her completed products on the walls of her store and the tremendous amount of appreciation and support from her customers. “As long as it stays fun, I’ll stay here doing it”, says BabyBoo.

JDiva Ophelia, owner and creator of Luna Park Charade featuring the awe inspiring designs of Masquerade Parade, opened her doors in February of 2006 bringing her 2D artistic skills into the 3D world. Bent over her wacom tablet she is obsessed with hand painting beautiful and unusual masks and the oddest of accessories.
The historic Carnivals of Venice inspire her as she is fascinated by the psychological concepts of wearing masks and complete anonymity. The virtual world is the ultimate mask and JDiva is here to make it more visually stimulating.
Nikita Fride, owner and creator of her self-entitled store known for the best artistic makeup in Second Life, had one main intention when she began…”be one of a kind”. After following her own feelings, creating crazy unique skins, sometimes bloodied or mangled, Nikita began receiving special requests from her customers. From these request she’s created her notorious angelic skins, clothing, shoes, boots, eyelashes and both male and female hair.
“There are many stylish people, but few true unique. Personal style is, after all, quite exceptional”, say Nikita. Choosing to create for an exquisite clientele, she recommends to personally see and wear her creations and identify, not only with the design but also her select audience.
Aeris Shenlin, owner and designer behind the stunning creations of Smooth Designs, came into Second Life in late 2006 and started building about four months later. Having made quite a name for herself in these 3 years, Aeris’ designs, both jewelry and costumes, are loved for their attention to detail and realism.
Much of her inspiration has come from childhood memories of watching her mother beautifully create silk art work and growing up around such beautiful clothing.
