Okay Ladies and Gents, skinners and skinees(?), guy and gals. It's time this month's victim was announced.

So without further hooplah, I give you Skinner Extraordinaire, our one and only Xiandi!

Xiandi has been with us here at WinCustomize for quite some time now. She's been a member since July 8, 2007.

She's a journeyman and a Top 3 Elder. Despite her profile listing, she's a she...lol. 

Xiandi has also served as an Admin at TheSkinningSuite for the life of the site. (We will miss TSS). She hails from Michigan, the Land of Stardock!

Xiandi has been involved in several community projects as well as helping others when in need. She has always been ready to jump in and assist when a novice artist needs advice, and even been known to assist a Master here and there.  She has helped me with my first WB (which is still in limbo) and has advised me on countless DX themes, always ready to give helping tips from graphics to screenshot critique.

She resides in the Top 100 WindowBlinds skinners and is moving up fast! Xiandi and I have something in common that I don't get to bring up often, we were both honorable mentions in the first episode of the WC Skincast!

Xiandi has a gallery consisting of ten categories, but specializing in WB. I obviously couldn't cover all that so my picks weren't easy.

So, without further ado, here are some of her best skins, in a redneck's opinion. I'll begin with her newest WB, released today, Hardwired.

 

Hardwired      http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/7243/  

 


Gunslinger      http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/7213/

 

 

MRX4      http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/7141/

 

Armageddon     http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/7077/

 

Organic        http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/6494/

 

And I couldn't go on without mentioning the two WBs she made based on my DX themes.

Pressurized     http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/6928/

and

Copper Carbon Fibre         http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/6828/        

 

And a Xion skin for Pressurized which was quite creative!    http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/xion/381/

 

Here are a few more links to Xiandi skins, just for good measure! She's done so many nice things!

An excellent and well deserved spotlight! Armageddon has to be my favorite of hers. She's just so talented and versatile, and a wonderful, positive presence in the community at large.
