IMVU; Where are they now?
This weekend there have been a large amounts of blogs attacking many people in the urban community of SL. Most users that we’re “put on blast” or “exposed” on the blog we’re people who originally came to SL from IMVU. As a past IMVU user, I feel that some people fail to realize the talent that did come out of IMVU. IMVU users have been called young, immature, and drama-filled. However many of the popular SL content creators have either played imvu or developed there as well. Many have become very successful on SL as well. Their humble nature and great business sense helps as well. This blog is to 1. Bring some positivity out of the fuckery that was written and 2. Showcase some great clothes (like i always do lol).
Sanya Bilavio (aka BluAbyss) started out as a skin creator, who early on got respect from veteran skin creators from Redgrave, went on to owning her own sim. Earlier this year she closed it with a bang; 20 freebie bags which packed the sim out for days. She is back now, located on the Eugene sim, along w/ Epoque. She offers high quality skins, shoes, accesories and clothing.

Meriiah Triellis (aka LuvableMeme) is one of the youngest and successful developers from IMVU. Everyone owned a pair of her original, no copy and paste, jeans. She came over to SL and started out doing the same; jeans. She’s blossomed into a very creative creator; ranging her clothes from 80s fashions to funky everyday denims that everyone can enjoy. She stays ahead of the trends and always has something to offer any type of girl. This skirt I’m modeling was actually one of the first items I bought on Barbiie and I’ve always wanted to show it off.

Emerald Emor, a former IMVU avi who never made anything there, made a BIG SPLASH on sl w/ her hidden talent. Her clothing is very in your face and great quality. It’s very rockish w/ a lil touch of Rihanna swag. Her clothing also reminds me alot of pop art. Its abstract and beautiful.

Chino and Trishiara (too many imvu name changes lol) have been a power couple since 2008. Chino had one of the hottest male clothing lines on IMVU. He then came to sl (after I forced him teehee) and owned the hottest urbanwear clothing line and urban clothing mall (Miami District). Miami District (also owned by Trish and Me) opened doors for many urban content creators while boostin our main stores. He also opened a second male store called Havok, which is more emo, skater and street. Miami did close and Chino got a sim for him, Emerald and Meriiah, titled 926 (which btw is Trish and Chino’s anniversary lol) What’s in store next? We’ll after some snooping, I see they are doing a discount group w/ the store’s on their sim called Freaky Fridays. They will have items for 69ls. When I get more info i’ll let you kno the scoop.
Tp to Havok
Last but not least there’s me! Originally Ariandym (both on sl and imvu) I came here to actually escape the IMVU market and gain more revenue w/ secondlife. (IMVU=Walmart of Virtual Revenue; but that’s a whole new blog) I also came here to escape the immaturity of IMVU. Since SL was suppose to be a game for people 18 and older, I thought it would be better. However many minors are on the grid. I also noticed when I came over, alot of IMVU ppl came over as well. 2 years later, I just closed down my adult main iDentity with a rockin’ fashion show and killer sale. Though i’ve been told that I’m missed heavily, iDentity isn’t apart of my heart anymore. However, I found a creative resurrection with Miinii Inc. The kid market on sl is one of the most lucrative and creative on sl. We offer any and everything and in honesty, its more fun! My blog has also been syndicated to every major feed and gets 100s of views a day. Miinii Inc has also crossed over to the adult side of sl, being included in many hunts and Fashion House.
Tp to Miinii Inc
In conclusion: We might be from IMVU but we have skills. We understand this is a business and that is why we are here. Judging ppl on rl isn’t want SL is about and people who waste their time to be negative and try to expose people really have nothing else better to do. Instead of hatin on us, follow our footsteps so you can be just as successful.
