1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I don't think you can. I'm guessing @mdubs had @Burzan get them when they had a trunk show at O'Connors up in Canada. Garnet was a limited available color. My avatar is garnet shell cornwallis and it is sourced from that event.

    You got it, I actually really wanted to get a shell Liverpool from the event but I'm glad I didn't. I heard all the orders for them got cancelled after about a month.

    That Cornwallis in Garnet looks fantastic! One of the better models I've seen from AE in recent years.

    Thanks!

    I'll bet making the liverpool was too difficult, possibly seeing a lot of tearing. I do regret not getting some other makeups that weren't available during the US trunk show. Oh well there will always be other shoes haha.
