This past week there was a few releases that I highlighted. In general I have new things floating around all of the time anyhow so I just pick and choose which ones I’m going to be telling ya’ll about well… I’ve been something on a clothes kick even though I haven’t entirely stopped doing other things either. I just can’t sit still for very long. Something is always rolling around waiting to be plucked and put out there for you. What I REALLY want to do again is what I have done in the past. Work on and save things releasing them a little at a time so I don’t have a “omg what do I do now” kind of thing going. *laughs*
I have two new outfit types…. and one I think is confusing folks a little even though I do label the box, I think I’m going to have to add an extra label or two. It’s a rigged mesh corset. The great thing about mesh is that it moves with the body. This corset is so neat. It attaches to the hand because the corset itself is already rigged to the SL avatar, so it doesn’t matter which attachment point it is on really… you could change it to anything and it will still sit on the correct spot.
Secondly, the viewer. If you’re not using a viewer that can see mesh like the LL viewer or something like Firestorm then all you are going to see is a bunch of funky textured balls and no corset. I know for a fact that viewer issues is one of the big reasons why mesh hasn’t been a huge BOOM on the grid yet. People don’t want to switch, they like their Phoenix, they like their _insert viewer name here_. To be entirely honest I don’t even really use a mesh enabled viewer all the time. I’ve worked with mesh some with a couple outfits and things but when it comes down to it I retreat back to Phoenix for ‘everyday’ use. The corset looks very cool, and I have one in the Lucky Chair even because I thought it’d be a nice lil present.
The corset is named Gitana and it comes in some very harvesty autumn like colors along with a couple others. Purple, Red and White, Red and Black, White and black, Pumpkin, Pumpkin Plaid, and the one in the lucky chair is Harvest Plaid. Each corset comes with alpha layer to hide the parts that aren’t supposed to show which reminds me – not EVERYONE will be able to wear this outfit happily.
One thing about rigged mesh clothing is that it can come one size fits ‘most’, and that’s what we have here. I only have the corset in one size unfortunately so what that means is there is a DEMO for you to try it out beforehand to see if it will fit your avatar the way you like.
The second outfit that I did up is a very stringy lil thing. Not a whole lot to it, which of course shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone who has known me too long. I like to show off the body often enough, a new set of silks called Yeira. The silks come with skirts, shoulder drape for the back, top & bottom, bracelets, armbands, and anklets. It covers everything but has lines drawn across the body to show off the hips, belly and breast quite nicely I think. Coming in four different colors… Red, Black, Silver, and Purple. The RED is in the Lucky Chairs for now even! Very nice hmm?
Last but not least I redid a chore. The Butter Churn has been one of those favorite little things people like to pick up.
In the slow but steady evolution of my chore line I added some accessories, redid the permissions, and added an extra animation. I have been rounding out and making the chores a little more for different reasons, partially if you’re going to spend your hard earned lindens you should feel like you’re getting a little something extra in some ways.
I am going to wrap this up for now… I have to get going! The day is just about to get started and I don’t want to run late. Talk to you soooooon I promise! Have a great week.
