Launch with a !Bang


!Bang – Glitz 3 pose

Trieste Minuet and her partner, Izaak Minuet sent me a small package of review poses to introduce me to their new !Bang pose shop. It’s not a secret that I get review copies often, but when it’s from a brand I haven’t heard of before, I tend to look at the creator’s profile to see their website and policies and all that.

Now I have to say, if these are alts, they make no secret of hiding it. Both Trieste and Izaak are one moth old. Unless the learning curve in SL has flattened, that’s an incredible rate for anybody to make poses, open a shop with a catchy brand name, get cute avatars, find established bloggers and learn savvy marketing methods. Yes, I think they’re savvy.

Whose alts are they? I want to ask… cos I think I know who it is, but I don’t really know if I should. I’ve seen many businesses run by alts in SL, for many different reasons. Sometimes the main avatar needs a break, or they want  to branch out, or they want a nice tidy inventory to work with. Whatever the reason, well done, you’re definitely launching with a !Bang.

A friend of mine said, they must want to be “on my radar” so to speak, cos they did find me to send review copies. Anybody that knows me, knows I am curious and I ask questions! Cos guess what? I was a newb for a long time in SL and it makes me feel stupid that one month old avatars can run savvy businesses.

My guess is, these avatars may be new but they are owned by very experienced and savvy SL’ers. 🙂

* This is just a guess! If I am wrong, my apologies in advance.

    Well if it’s not them it’s definately someone trying to emulate the looks of their avatar. And we all know adding elf ears makes one look completely different 😛

    They prolly just wanted the same last names cos they are married.

    Hi Gogo – The pics you created are adorable! Using the edge of the tub is super creative for the sit pose. Yes the store is my alt’s. I use all my alts in the photos. As JenniferD said, its nice to have alts with the same last name since we’ve been partnered for the last 18+ months. Just let me know if you want to see other poses. Thanks again for the support – always appreciated! Luna

    Busted! I wonder if her alt paid advertising dollars to be promoted so heavily by herself. Thanks for the heads up Gogo!
