Struggling but excited!

So wow, I never knew that setting up a pose store could be so difficult! I know it's just the initial burst of effort needed to get organised and to categorise and take inventory etc. Being me, that is extremely tough as I am very much a perfectionistic scatter brain (There's a handicap right there aye?), though I think I'm managing to pull things together.

Finally counted up the poses I'll have for the premiere of the store which is 77. Doesn't seem like too much but it's quite a bit to get through in one sitting!

After much shuffling, I've now decided that my poses can be best described in a range of five main categories with a sixth to describe poses that have been grouped in packs (for couples, clones, by theme, and fat-packs etc...). A 7th will be added later which will group the animations I have created for furniture projects past; but for now they are :

  1. Arts & Action - Arts & Action describes poses inspired by theatre, dance, classical painting and film
  2. Emotional & Horizontal - Emotional & Horizontal describes poses that centre around expression and  those created to work with landscape format portraits
  3. Crawls & Kneels - Crawls & Kneels describes poses inspired by these body postures
  4. Sits - Sits describes poses inspired by this body posture (includes sits on furniture, objects and ground)
  5. Stands - Stands describes poses inspired by this body posture
  6. Sets - Sets describes poses created for set theme fat-packs, couples or groups
I've also decided to use an artists' dummy avatar to illustrate the poses in my vendor photos. Here's a sneak peak :

What a bunch of my poses look like together!
After much hmming and hawing I decided I'm using Caspervend as they seem to provide the most functionality such as gift cards, redelivery terminals, group discounts  and marketplace integration. All nice nifty features that is something I look for myself when I'm being a consumer.

Thus with that blab, it's back to the drawing board!
