You know what’s cool about De La Soul?
Besides, you know, all our great stuff. We know that’s cool. And we know you know it’s cool. And that makes you cool. ♥
It’s a circle of cool. Like the circle of life. Only nobody becomes grass for antelope at some point in it.
No, what’s cool is that we listen. Not a lot of companies do that, you know, it seems, and we’ll be blunt, we think that kind of sucks, because without feedback, companies can’t grow. And if we can’t grow, we can’t get better, and if we can’t get better, you don’t get better things, and you get crappier things, and then you don’t like us anymore.
That’s the opposite of the circle of cool.
But we listen!
When we released a new line of petites, many of you saw the skins and clamored, shouted, exclaimed, cried out, and other synonymous actions pertaining to it, that you really, really wanted to see these skins in full-size awesome. And you know what, we thought that was a great idea. So we did gone did it for yas.
Because we like you. A lot. Though only in a platonic way. Sorry to disappoint you if we led you on otherwise.
Presenting the Lumi and Lumio avatar collection!
Along with these fabulous, wonderful, stupendous, spectacular skins, of which there are nine, one of which is a skin never released before, the “Cosmos”, you also get, which are all modifiable so you can let your own self shine..

Now, on to the hats!
Along with the Lumi and Lumio, we’re proud to announce a pair of different hats. Right. Hats. And don’t listen to Kathleen Kelly from the movie “You Got Mail”, because although a lot of hats are a mistake, these are not. Promise. First off we have..
The Asian Hat! Yes, I know, creative name. Actually, this hat was inspired by the Pandaren from World of Warcraft’s newest expansion. Love ’em, hate ’em, they had a nice bamboo hat going on! And now you can own one for yourself. It has its own HUD for changing colors, giving you lots of opportunities to match whatever you’re wearing. 199L
And the second?
The Sir and the Sir Petite!
And yes. The tophat does have a mustache. And monocle. And it comes with a mustache and monocle for you as well! With HUDs to change EVERY every aspect of the hat, monocles, and ‘staches, we’re talking serious customization here along with the awesome look of this thing. Seriously. Just..just look at it again. Look at it and tell me you don’t want the awesome that is The Sir.
And if you don’t, we can never be friends, you are not someone I wish to know.
How many customization options for The Sir?..
4 colors of Grey to choose from.
Tintable with the Tinting HUD.
Changes both on the hat and on the worn, separate Stache.
10 top and 10 Brim texture colors to choose and mix and match from.
The band around the brim of the hat.
10 texture colors to choose from. Mix and matching all the other colors of the Hat top and Brim.
20 Texture Colors to choose from in both Plain and Faded Satin.
8 Metal textures to choose from, changes both the metal of the monocle and the metal around the Gem pin.

Bright (On, Off)
Changes both the metals on the Hat and the worn separate Monocle.
10 Gem colors to choose from.
Shine (Off, Low, Med, High)

So if we multiply all these options to show just how many different styles this thing has, it comes out to..
Only Rys would do the math on this one. 😄
..One hundred two million, four hundred thousand different combinations for that hat.
Over ONE HUNDRED MILLION combination options.
You know what, I think my calculator’s run out to get one for itself.
Come on down and check out the new skins and hats! We’ll be waiting! And check out the display for our own roleplaying sim, The Isle of Amras, as well! It’s a load of fun! It has to be! Just look at all the exclamation marks!
I do hope that you have enjoyed reading this rather long notice! Enjoy your second life, whether you be large or small, there will always be something for you at De La Soul!
