If you’re in the market for a complete ensembles for men and women, Penelope Heron’s store, !MPOSSIBLE, just may be the place for you. With a balanced selection of clothing sets for both genders, the brand offers casual, semi-formal and formal clothing for a variety of occasions.

Penelope, a seamstress who creates clothing designs of her own in real life, has become absorbed in transforming her ideas into an interactive digital medium since discovering Second Life. “Basically, I love to sew my own clothes in real Life, but I never [became] a real life Fashion Designer. I joined SL to live my dream!” she says.

Heron’s store was originally named Pebbles, but the designer eventually found it to be “boring”. The store name !MPOSSIBLE, came about from spending time with her Second Life partner. “I always said to him ‘Du bist unmöglich!’ (German-to-English translation: ‘You’re impossible!’,” she shares. “So … tada! The new name was born in honor to my SL hubby”.

For men !MPOSSIBLE currently carries baseball caps and outfit combinations which usually include a short or long-sleeve tee, polo or dress shirt (sometimes paired with a blazer, outerwear option or tie). For women, one can find gowns, subtle and sophisticated casual dresses, and clothing sets that have a bit of a daringly glamorous flair. For both genders the store also carries footwear options, as well as swimwear – board shorts for the guys and bikinis for the girls.

“When I came to SL I played around with the [clothing] templates … just for fun,” says Penelope, who received much encouragement from those around her in support of opening a store of her own. “I started to work with Photoshop and Milkshape 3D about 5 Years ago. Now that SL came up with sculpts I had to learn Blender as well.”

For Penelope, the “wow” effect has driven her contributions to the upcoming Sunday fashion showcase. The tight-lipped designer has chosen to keep what she will be showing hush-hush. Sending out an invitation to personally view her designs, she says, “I think everyone likes to be asked where [they get their] style from. Naming and telling about the items would be not enough … you need to see them. I hope to see you all around and share some fun with us.”

Heron will be opening another store location in the near future. To keep abreast of the grand opening date, keep your eyes peeled to her blog.
