It’s definitely all about the girls at the moment. Today Aiko 6 gets to step back into the limelight (move over showgirls) as a sweet new character is released for her, along with an outfit and hair. Her name is Kimiko and she has huge eyes and an ethereal face combined with Aiko6’s long-limbed body. Raiya is the artist behind the character, and she always does lovely work on the skin textures. -Esha- has come up with a cute outfit for her, and SWAM has contributed an equally cute hairstyle, so this girl has everything she needs to look her most adorable right from the start.
There’s also a spacious and enticing ballroom from Bluebird3d which is new today. It’s full of detail and the additional lighting set will help you get those sparkling results. The basic structure reminds me a little of this very good Blender tutorial series from Greg Zaal to make a Breakfast Hall — I’ve worked through most of it but am yet to add the finer detail and texture it for DS.
Elsewhere the sales are wrapping up. Sadly the ‘T-Party’ sale is now over, and this really truly will be your last chance to get those reduced-price Victoria and Michael 4 products. I hope they follow that amazing sale with a Genesis one… What do you think? Of course we have the PA sale on the horizon too.
Over on Hivewire 3D the very lovely Elisa for Dawn sneaked in almost without my noticing. Read more about her below.

The Taste of Platinum Club promotion now in store is only going to be interesting if you are not in the PC at all. If you are in the PC+ beta trial, there’s nothing new to see here. Pass on quickly or you’ll just become irritated that non-members are getting the same deals that you paid for. Today is the first day I feel like giving this beta a ‘fair trial’ has backfired on me, though the Taste of PC is not new in itself.

- Kimiko for Aiko6 by Raiya. As I mentioned above, this girl’s all big-eyed cuteness. Raiya has a lovely way with character skins too.
- Kiriko Hair for G2F and V4 by SWAM. It’s a lovely hairstyle for this childlike character and similar ones that you might have. The handles to pose the tails are a nice touch. I just wish there wasn’t now a strong trend of vendors (not just SWAM) supporting V4 and shiny new G2F but leaving out Genesis completely. I guess that says something about the popularity of V4 in spite of her advancing years.
- Kiriko Outfit by -esha-. A short and sweet outfit to show off those endless legs of Aiko’s. You get hosiery and shoes too, and a couple of textures (red velvet or black silk).
- Colorful Kiriko by -esha-. A texture add-on pack that is full of gorgeous options. With 8 new coordinating outfits, this is a must-buy if you are treating yourself to the outfit too.
- Rendezvous Ballroom by Bluebird3d. A light and airy space with a nice glass ceiling detail and sparkly chandelier.
- Rendezvous Ballroom Lights by Bluebird3d. A real time-saver if you buy the above product, this set will instantly give you a choice of 4 lighting sets to give your celebrations different moods.

- Elisa for Dawn by Maelwenn. A fair-skinned beauty who will transform your Dawn base mesh into a real head-turner. She has a curvy figure and her face options range from truly fresh-faced to 6 different full make up choices. In Studio, she uses AgeofArmour’s Subsurface shading for the most up-to-date skin shader results. I think she’ll win Dawn many new fans.
