CSR Summer Choice Opens Tomorrow! Save the Date & Time!


UPDATE: Please forgive me! I misunderstood Moeke. It is already Saturday August 1 in Japan. I just visited the Event Hall again. The CSR Summer Choice has just opened!!! Stamping of cards has begun! Enjoy!!!!

I am so excited! I was just at the CSR Summer Choice Event Hall, talking with the manager of the event, the lovely Moeka Kohime.

Moeka told me that the time for Summer Choice to open tomorrow, Saturday, August 1 is 8:00 AM SLT.

That is the time at which you can go to the Event Hall, and use your stamp cards to collect your prizes! Yay!

Moeka is also the owner of Edelweiss, and the creator of the beautiful clothes there that we all love so much!!

Have you seen the Summer Choice prizes from Edelweiss? There are beautiful school uniforms for guys and girls 🙂

What prizes will you get?! I have to get these shoes from Coco for myself and my bf! (You can give CSR stamp cards to others so they can get prizes! What a lovely gift to give someone.)

I am sooooo excited! This is my favorite event in SL. I hope you all enjoy it! See you at the stores stamping my cards and at the event hall picking out our gifts!

Arigato to Moeka Kohime, and to all the creators at the participating stores!

Beanie Loves Summer Choice!!!! 🙂

CSR – Summer Choice 2009 – Update

July 22, 2009 Leave a comment

Konbanwa! I posted earlier about what the CSR Summer Choice 2009 is, how it works, and the SLURLs for the participating stores here: Creator Stamp Rally (CSR) – Summer Choice 2009 Information. Please see that post for comprehensive information.

A few updates:

*- I’ve added a category for CSR Summer Choice 2009 to the category list in the drop down menu on the right of this webpage. You can select that category from now on to see all my posts related to the current CSR.

*- Creator Stamp Rally (CSR) has been renamed to Summer Choice 2009

*- Along with the official website (URL in the post linked above), there is also an official blog. The URL for the official blog, SummerChoice!2009 Official guide Blog, is:

The official blog provides updates such as when each participating store puts their CSR items up for sale, and shows you what they are selling that contain CSR stamp cards. It will also tell you when a participating store has announced their gift item, and show pictures of the gift.

*- To read a Japanese blog, first, copy the URL to your clipboard. Next, go to Paste the URL of the Japanese blog from your clipboard into the box. Select Japanese as the language to translate ‘from’. Select English or the other language of your choice as the language to translate ‘to’. Click the translate button. You’ll get a page with the website translated to the language you chose. Read! Enjoy!

The translation will not be perfect, and at times confusing, but you’ll get the general gist of things. Also, SLURLs (and other links) may have extra characters embedded that you’ll need to delete to make them usable. Pictures are helpful in figuring out what is being said when it gets confusing – look at them carefully!

Please feel free to IM me inworld if you have any problems translating websites with Google – I’m always happy to help!


Creator Stamp Rally (CSR) – Summer Choice 2009 Information

July 12, 2009 2 comments


Konbanwa! The Creator Stamp Rally (CSR) – Summer Choice 2009 will begin on August 1.

The official blog is here:

For those of you new to the CSR, here’s my own explanation of what it is, and how it works. I hope you’ll find it helpful!

CSR is a promotional event put on twice a year by some of the very best Japanese creators and designers. It’s an event model that’s very successful in that everybody ‘wins’ – that is, both creators and customers come away very happy. The creators and designers are compensated for their work through sales and new customers. Customers receive far more than their money’s worth.

The event has an air of excitement that begins long before the event does, as customers and potential customers eagerly anticipate the new releases that will be put for sale, as well as the fabulous – often limited edition – gifts that can be acquired. It’s been my favorite event since my first CSR in 2007!

Each participating store will sell items that are specifically marked as CSR items. These items sell for $100 and up. If you’re not sure if an item is a CSR item, right click the vendor, choose Buy, and look at the list of items in the vendor. If it’s a CSR item, there will be a stamp card object in the contents.

Save those CSR stamp cards! When the CSR stamping begins (date to be announced), go to each participating store. You’ll have about a week to do this. Wear each of your cards. You can wear more than one card at a time by right clicking a card in inv, choosing Attach, then attaching to an empty spot on your av.

While wearing your card(s), click the CSR stamping machine at each store you visit. This will put a stamp on each card you have attached. The goal is to get a stamp from each participating store on each of your cards.

Once you have done this, you can go to the CSR pavilion, view the gifts available, then use the CSR gift machine to get your gift. To use the gift machine, simply drag a stamped card from your inv onto the gift machine, then choose your gift – and it’s yours!

Many of the gifts are limited edition items that no one will be able to buy. They’re valuable, very high quality, and extremely cool!

After you fill a card with stamps, you can also give it as a gift to someone else. That person just needs to go to the pavilion and choose their gift. It’s a wonderful gift!

I’d recommend looking at all the gifts, and figure out how many cards you’ll need – one for each gift you want. Then visit each participating store, looking at what’s available to buy as CSR items. Make a shopping list, then go back and buy those items and collect your cards.

You can buy a CSR item from any store to get a stamp card, even if you want a gift from a different store.

The gifts will be listed on the official CSR blog as they become available, so keep checking there!
