Last Call: is it too dated?

Last Call

(Wearing LC Casbah)

I don’t consider myself an SL hoarder but there are a couple of things I just can’t delete. One of them being Last Call items, even though one of my close friends told me that she deleted her entire collection already *sobs!*

They’re getting dated, but I’m still fond of them. Do I keep hoarding it or donate it to someone that will love it more?

    • Last Call is an old but very beloved brand in SL, until the creator passed away in RL. There was a massive closing sale — so a lot of people have transferable items from this brand.

  1. If they’re truly looking dated just keep a token item & donate the rest. 🙂

  2. Keep it if you love it, old doesnt mean that its not good. I still have the same prim glasses from about my 1st or 2nd month in sl. I wear them usually everday and they are sorta my trademark. So if you love it, keep it, if not pass it along.

  3. Last Call items are classics. Yes some of the skirts are dated because of prim work but the majority of clothes is still imo better than items that are out now. The detailing on the shirts and dresses can still hold up today. I still have all my Last Call items and wear them to this day. I say if you are just looking to clear up some inventory space save the pieces you adore the very most and give the rest away.

  4. Last Call is my “go to” inventory items. I will never delete them. They are classics.. timeless.

  5. I still have all of mine too. And I’m a clothing designer so I never run out of clothes! LOL! I don’t know….I just can’t seem to part with them. They were my absolute favorite clothing and they were my style. I’m still a fan. 🙂

  6. I’ve got at least 20+ Last Call outfits on my very first Avatar in SL (rez date 7/6/06) When they closed I was lost..but SL has expanded so much since then!! As for something that I still wear for almost three plus years – a pair of Acid&Mala boots way way back when they were just a little bitty shop. I have them in black and in red. They’ve always been Dou’s trademark. Wear those things with everything!

  7. I would donate to someone who perhaps has heard of but never had the opportunity to experience the brand before the creator’s unfortunate passing. I have seen several items referenced before and wished I had had the chance to look in this store as some of the things look very interesting. Maybe keep the items you most appreciate and find new owners for the rest ?

  8. You really should keep them, they’re like little diamonds. Now they’re rare and you need to spend a lot of money to get a piece. I think that Last Call items are not dated at all… I mean, the textures are gorgeous and they are better than some items that are for sale now.

  9. Honestly I think it depends on the piece. I donated mine to RFL long ago as the prim parts were no mod (sculpties being so new then) and so while cute, it never fit me. I only bought the one item (thifty even coming out of the pod it seems). BUT , I have a friend who has that signature outfit that was in all the ads (I did my homework as a budding fashionista) and it still looks great. Not every piece from even the best designers is going to be a keeper forever, but some are going to last a long while.

    So I didn’t vote 😀 since I am on the fence. It depends what all you have. Honestly I just remember trying to get in for days and not even knowing exactly WHY it was important at the time. Ah to be young :D.

  10. Gogo, there is a Last Call auction with proceeds going towards the Toys for Tots charity this weekend. It’ll be a rush but if you did want to donate the outfits to a cause that will make a real difference pop Kate Stockholm, who is organizing the event, an IM, am sure she’d be more than happy to include what you have!

  11. Horde!

    I don’t wear entire outfits much, but I still wear the odd component as part of a larger outfit. I think a lot of it still holds up, particularly the later collections. I have away a bunch of my less-worn LC about a year ago when I was cutting down my inventory and I still kind of regret it.

  12. Gogo, I say keep them as well, you have a sentimental attachment to them. If you are worried about inventory space, just rezz a box and load them in it. And label the box. Problem solved. Im sure you already know this, you could make a folder called storage.

  13. I voted keep-

    Last Call was the place that got me into the SL fashion. I even met and spoke with Ginny a few times before her passing and she was always so nice. I remember it had gone through 3 remodels after i found it and the finale sale after Ginny’s passing I scooped up as many items as i could and I still hold on to them- a few parts are dated but the over all looks are timeless. Last Call set the foundation for many of todays designers/teams, they were truly a pioneer in the SL fashion world and there for should never be forgotten- thats why I still and always will hold onto my Last Call items. LC was the first place in SL whos fashions made me look as beautiful as i felt in SL- I miss Last Call. 🙁

  14. I would have a hard time parting with them. These are great pieces and I remember the huge sale and I was lucky enough to grab a handful, but I sure do miss it.

  15. I can’t seem to part with them either!!! I think its also sentimental because it was one of the first fashionable stores I went to that helped me get out of the noob look! Most of the outfits are still pretty well made and look great even better than some of the stuff I’ve seeen lately.LOL

  16. Not only can I not part with my Last Call wardrobe, I still have my Dazzle wardrobe. 🙂

  17. boo 🙂

    I have long list of Last Call to, i can’t delete them either, even though i don’t wear them, I am a hoarder no doubt 🙂

  18. HOARD!
    HOARD!

    Seriously, keep them. If they take up to much space then box them up. Like Julia, I too have some Dazzle items and most of my Last Call items. Besides getting rid of some of the shoes, I can’t bear to part with any of it!

  19. Or the radical way, delete them. It’ll take you 2 seconds and after 3 days you have forgotten about them. As if they have never been there.

  20. I still have a LC Collection items, which I bought before the big final sale and a lot after, my most recent post for the 52 weeks of Colour I used LC Mackenzie top, I agree with the comment about the skirts, but with viewer 2, the top and glitch pants get new life. I also thinking about it and I also wore LC, Yelena on another post a couple of days ago. In fact anyone wanting to sell LC, come knock on my door.

  21. If you’re just clearing up space, box the folders.

    If you’re wanting to pass them on, do so. I like to mix and match some of my LC stuff in various outfits – like others said, many of the textures DO still hold up.

    I wouldn’t just delete them, though – that auction doesn’t sound like a horrible idea.

  22. Haha, I had one item at my old avatar and I “managed” to remove it along with … the WHOLE inventory (don’t ask how, LOL).
    I kind of regret that 😉 And like many says, LC were pioneers in SL fashion.

    I think you’d keep them, at least those you like alot and then remove, or whatever pleases you, the other items :}

  23. omg nooooooo!!!!

    Do not delete!!!!!
    If, for some reason, you have a mental snap and decide you don’t want them, donate them. They are worth a lot to certain people, and could go to a great cause.
    On the subject of quality, I still wear my dahlia cami… a lot. I still get comments on how gorgeous it is, and on the quality.

  24. No donate, save with you. But I would like to ask you something (i know this is noe the best place for this, but if not a problem… maybe other persosn have the same problem and u can help ): Some itens form Last Call disappeared, especially sets that contained parts in prim … I was just with textures and from time to time when i check, will occur with other outfits… : / Besides other things of other brands(new brands) disappearing too (example: 1 left prim shoes, but the right shoes stay on inventory), and I have one friend with the same problem … and we dont have a inventory disorganized^^ She call for LL but without answer :/ And we using viewer2… ^^ Ty 🙂

    • Jeanie, that sounds like a cache issue with the disappearing items. If you clear your SL cache manually (on my computer I have to go to C: drive, Documents and Settings, Users, , Applications, and Local or Roaming folders to get to my SL cache.) I delete the cache folder, then empty the trash and restart the computer. That brings everything back when you log in again.

      @Gogo: agree with the people here who said Last Call is timeless. Donate, sell or give away, but please don’t delete. They’re collector’s items if nothing else. I still have (and wear) the first limited edition Ginny made. It’s called “Sans”. 🙂

  25. I never wear my Last Call things (got them in that final sale) but they mostly stand up to what you can get today. Sculpts and prims and so on have advanced, but textures are textures. Most people’s stuff from that time… really doesn’t look that good anymore. It says a lot about Ginny’s talent that all this time later it’s still good stuff.

    What’s surprised me though is that on the occasions I’ve looked at the second-hand market, Last Call stuff hasn’t got much more expensive than it was at the time. I’ve met more than one person who spent astonishing amounts in that sale getting things to resell later. I would have expected that by now this stuff would be incredibly expensive, yet it isn’t. Too many transfer copies out there, maybe?

    I wouldn’t get rid of my Last Call, it’s a little bit of SL history.

  26. Hoard…I consider Last Call to be akin to Vintage SL Designer Clothing. Deleting your collection would be like burning a stack of Chanel suits….THE HORROR!!!

  27. Last Call will forever be my most beloved creator in Second Life. From the time they were Dazzled, way back in .. what, ’05 or so, when I came around? They made beautiful, quality clothes for a very decent price. Last Call was just amazing, and some of their things, particularly their couture items are still quite valid. But I’m prejudiced. *smiles* When I was feeling particularly sick, and had little in the bank, I’d amble into the store, and they’d have another beautiful freebie or three to give away. A beautiful brand, and a beautiful creator. I love and miss them both.

  28. I just recently found a little store in Toastyville that sells Last Call outfits. She has great prices too. I spoke with the owner and she is going out of business. All of her Last Call items are priced to sell! No more 1k outfits! I had to grab a few, and there are still many left! If you have never seen Last Call, it is worth it to even stop over and look at it. The quality is outstanding! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Lesten/246/52/95

  29. Thanks Sparkles! I just went to that store and was so happy to see good prices on authentic Last Call stuff! I wish I had more $ I would buy it all! The store is still there, so if anyone is looking for an outfit I suggest go now! She has some rare items that most people charge thousands for! Uber Score on Last Call! Oh and Toastyville is really cute too! Props to the free store next to the Last Call store! Did you get to check that out?
