As a thank you to all my loyal group members, they receive this month as a freebie, the Odette gown, in this iridescent shade I called Shahzadi. Shahzadi, means princess, of course, and I hope that all the lovely ladies who got (or get) this number feel like one while wearing it. There are two weeks remaining in which the gown will still be in the group archives, so if you aren’t in the group but want the gown, join as soon as possible.
Yes, the Garindan location of Kouse’s Sanctum is no more. On May 1st, a brand new sister location will be unvieled, though it is very easy to peek in now if you like. Serenity Sieyes and Malakh Giles have worked together to create a stunningly gorgeous build for the new Sanctum location (heart goes pitter pat) I adore these people. They are two of my favourite people in the entirety of SL, and I am so so thrilled that they’ve been such an instrumental part of this, and that they’ve created this wonderful build. If you aren’t yet familiar with their work, please please PLEASE visit the Avilion sims (but please follow the dress codes…) their builds are always a joy to behold.
The new store will feature a special fountain I’ve made as well.
I am most likely going to change this a bit (ie retexture and remove my sig KS) and put it for sale, I’ve already had a couple people say they would like copies. Lately I’ve been finding it’s a nice break from all the clothing to do other builds, like jewelry or the fountain, for example, so the store may end up carrying a larger variety of things in the future.
Anyway, there will be a lot going on in the Sanctum that son’t make it to this blog, so to keep up with all the news if you’re so inclined, please keep an eye out for the group notices!

The Midnight Kiss Gift
Those of you who missed it, Midnight Kiss was delivered early in the morning of March 14th. It can still be found in the group info on the notices tab, and I hope you all enjoy this gift. Work is in progress for April’s as well as a bunch more new things.
So I’ve finally made a tiara. Granted it’s a bit whimsical, but personally I like it. Not sure how th over all reception to this piece will be, but if you’ve stopped by this blog, please take a second to look at the full size of these images.
Each of these two tiaras are 124 prims. They’re also scripted, so the owner can enjoy menu driven gem change (yay for low lag).
So many sweet lil faes and so many cute lil people have been asking for small versions of my gowns, that I’ve decided I’ll start making them available in the Sanctum. For some time I’ve been resizing them as requests have come in, but I think making them available small from the beginning will make for faster and happier shopping.
My newest release is the Celestial Empress series. As i look back I can see so clearly my own evolution, and I’m happy with my progress thus far 😀 This series is available in six colours, and this time I’ve also done a special wedding gown edition due to popular request and the sheer number of requests I’ve had for wedding gowns. I will still be taking on custom work, though not as much as before. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this series, I’m very happy with how it turned out. 🙂
New at the Sanctum, I finally added these circlets. I had originally meant to release these as a companion to the Lady Serenity gowns, but better late than never. Just like the Princess of Light circlets, theres a full prim display at the store so you can examine all angles for yourself. Enjoy!
At last the Crystal gowns have been released. The Twilight (baby blue) edition of this gown was given as a freebie to the members of the Kouse’s Sanctum update group. Available at the main store in a total of seven colours, however anyone wishing to have a custom colour can IM Kouse Singh and it will be arranged.
Jewelry is the Hope Collection in Gold and Sapphire, also available at the Sanctum.
A gown set that manages to be both formal and sporty, Gwyneth is a quality, affordable little number. Available in six colours (sapphire, gold, ruby, emerald, amethyst, and ocean) it’s a great addition to any wardrobe, be it the RPer or the one who’s afraid to be a little too formal in their choice of clothing, it’s great if you’re ona bit of a budget but still want to wrap yourself in something silky.
