The Shops… Murdering Creativity and Your Wallet One Paycheck at a TIME.

Milli2

So firstly I’m going to critique the body as I always do considering I spent a pretty penny trying to get the full content on this mesh I was not able to go around and gather up others for comparison. I don’t take part in free blogging groups at this time because it’s allot of pressure and free stuff I can’t honestly say I deserve. Any how on to the topic of The Shops, and the The Mesh Project. So far, out of all the mesh bodies I have demo’ed this one has to be the most versatile! It has the smoothest fit I have seen from fitted mesh versus other out there. Which make it hands down my favorite mesh body. For one it’s damn well seamed, I love the fact the mesh hands come included but with the lack of nail options and the fact that I really don’t want to sink another 2k in linden I’ll pass on nail colors.

Here’s the Cons.

Price:
This may be one of the best mesh bodies on the market however I don’t see the justification in paying so much for this shape. It may have had some tweaking in the Thighs, Buttox, and breasts, however that does not justify the expense of Nearly 20 dollars USD on this shape. Why? Because the shape is based off of the original linden lab mesh model. As a mesh designer I know from first hand if you want something to be seamless its best to start with original files and tweak them. Does that justify paying an arm and a leg for something any skilled mesh artist could do… not really. The attempt to reach customers with different price ranges just not as many options is a sales tactic employed since the roman era.
For those of you not familiar with sales, and would willingly throw money at anything just because you have it here’s why you should care.

Analogy Time:

Say we all decided to go to Starbucks but because dick can’t afford a Vente Mocha Frappe star bucks decides they’re going to offer him a less satisfying Vente lets say its pistachio flavored. One it will not ultimately satisfy dicks need because its not chocolate and two it fucking pistachio flavored…? Theirs no caffeine. It’s ultimately not what dick wanted! Sure dick will spend the money to give it a go, but because dick isn’t satisfied with the options he’s likely to come back and spend more money later for Vente Mocha Frappe Which has all the original Options dick wanted in the first place. (WHY DICK!?)

Did that make sense?

SO lets break this down more, The Vente Mocha Frappe costs, lets say 4 bucks in a perfect world with out taxes.
The pistachio cheap flavor costs, Lets say 2.50 Same size just not the full chocolate goodness and caffeine you’d get from drinking the Frappe.

Dick Pays 2.50 for the pistachio thinking it would be more cost effective, but dick doesn’t take into consideration it doesn’t have Caffeine and it’s not fucking chocolate…
So dick comes back later and pays 4 bucks for the real thing. Dick SPENT 6.50!? WHY DICK WEREN’T YOU TRYING TO SAVE?

The Shop makes its money off of people attempting to make a good decision which is just sad.

Alpha Layers Hud:
IT SUCKS, it’s essentially the second life body, yet you can click sections and turn them off. Considering the wide range of mesh clothing products out there its sad. I feel like a lack of detail was left out in the design of this hud, you’re still very much limited and while the thought is cute theirs virtually no attempt here.

 

I’d like to say thank you to everyone who voiced the same opinion and helped in the creation of this blog.
Lets hope that this starts a well needed discussion.

Masquerading War Chieftess

The little indian

I love the thought of ball dresses with frills, the lovely bunching of the satin, and the way the light hits it. I took some inspiration of various things I purchased from recent event. I owe thanks to Collabor88, The Fantasy Gacha, And Oh My Gacha. I’ve made myself broke playing at these event but it was well worth it. I was able to put together several outfits using both OLD and NEW Release’s. I don’t believe a blog post is made interesting by simply having the newest and latest things, what makes it interesting is the outfit you make from it, is it colorful? Does it catch your eye? What about it makes it different from the rest?

In this outfit I’m wearing tons of Gacha Items, The Head Dress comes from the previous round of  The Arcade. I decided to pair it with the latest release from May’s Soul.  I’ve been addicted to the owl from Four Seasons so I wear it with almost every autumn outfit I have. Finally the most expensive piece my red dress from junbug

The Pregnant Pumpkin

The Pregnant Punking [Full]

Maternity shopping is probably the worst thing to do if you’re role playing pregnancy and still want to some how be fashion forward. It’s like trying to shove a square peg through a circle, nine times out of ten the outfit you put together just doesn’t fit your Role play… Most of the time you end up looking urban. I was really happy to stumble upon The Muse, although these dresses have been out for a while I still wanted to show my appreciation for having the luxury to wear something that is so detailed and lovely. I spent hours searching for the right dress that made me feel like I had that autumn “Pop”. I’m a sucker for Halloween and fall this time of year really makes you want to cozy up and drinking a nice cup of hot chocolate, well for me any way.

The Pregnant Pumpking [frontal]

Nothing says soon to be mommy like a bow from the forge… Last thing any one wants to deal with is a hormonal raging plump pumpkin chasing after them and shooting. If you add a pair of elf ears to this outfit the peak perfectly to the sides giving a nice dramatic look, great for the casual forest elf.

A Montage of Breasts!

Frontshots(Clean)

So before we get started, let me introduce you to all of the breasts I have owned over the past two and half years or something like that… Might be exaggerating a bit there. This post is going to go in order of age, starting with the sculpted push-ups to the left and then going to the newest in the Lola’s Line. This blog post will show you front and side boob comparisons of all of these glorious titties! One more thing before we get started my Mucky Duckies. If you want the dirty images for better comparison to each breast you can visit my flickr which is linked to the right of the blog and click through. You must be logged into flickr to view these images! Now shall we continue?

Lolaspushups

Hello old school push-ups. Originally body modifications in SL took a lot of time and patience and appliers were almost impossible to come by often. This caused a great deal of stress. No matter how hard you tried seaming these boobs, they were practically impossible to work with. It took tons of effort or a really good friend to put together a texture for you which often resulted in the stretching of the nipple to the point they looked like droopy ovals (YUM). You can see why body enhancements had a bad rep and were reserved for the down right mucky. Often they never looked good and you had to keep the same skin otherwise you risked having to start from scratch to make them work.

There’s two designers that owe some recognition for trying to deal with these puppies and market them, C.K. Winx and Morgan Adamski.

Clean Tangos

Then came Tango’s and thank god because seaming was so much of a hassle; these boobs were a joyous arrival onto the body modification market. It gave Skin Creators back creative control over their skins and potential to make cash flow off of offering appliers. They were fun and easy to seam and instantly exploded with popularity among women looking for that perfect rack. Still there was a huge stigma on them, many woman were still skeptical and some of the first appliers were risky and variety was tight.

Lushbreasts

Lush… I bought these because they had the roundness I was looking for at the time. However Tango’s had stolen the market and many designers didn’t want to make another set of appliers for these. Thankfully through a couple of updates you could apply Tango Appliers to these lovely breasts. The only thing that really put me off about these breast is the awkward crease at the bottom of the breasts. I ended up moving back to my Tango’s until Tango Mirage’s arrived. These breasts are affordable and they are compatible so if you’re looking for a good pair of respectable breasts they’re relatively easy to re-size.

LolasMirage

Round, BEAUTIFUL, LOVELY… Ugh… I bought these two days after they came out. I can’t stop praising these because of the effort in scripting, and seaming is simply masterful with these. So what makes these different…

Well Let me just Roll out my List:

1. Re-sizing is simpler and editing and positioning takes just seconds to make it work.
2. Tango Appliers work with them.
3. LESS SCRIPT USE. Just 2 scripts. No need to go on to the marketplace and purchase a script cleaner.
4. Want oil on them? No problem they still seam correctly.
5. They’re Masterfully round and plump… with no awkward crest at the bottom of the breast.
6. The drop menu is cleaner and easier to use.
7. You can use both Bra and Dress tops on one or the other.
8. Bounce script included!
9. Script Usage is minimal [80Kb consumed for 0.004724ms of cpu time.] you can keep your tits for a raid, they cost less than your collar.
10. Looks more realistic with half corsets.

Side Shots of all (CLEAN)

Here’s the Side view of each breast! Depending on what you’re looking for in your breast shape one of these four are suitable.
The skins featured in this post are Vive Nine, and Essence. Remember if you want the dirty comparison please visit my flickr! you can get a good idea on how the nipple shapes around the breast.

The Wilderness

Woot my first post… Lots to talk about! This is a blog devoted to not just female fashion but two avid role players who simply want to show you our taste in style.
Yes, Their will be men styling and of course I’ll talk about some of the juicy stuff and give my opinion and suggestions on just about everything.
So for the first official post I’d like to introduce myself, I’m known as foxy! I’m generally pretty open about where my outfits come from.
I’m pretty enthused with whats new and I’ll try just about anything! I plan on bringing more then just Gorean Fashion, but random outfits that are fun and cute.

So now that I’ve gotten that out of the way lets blow the lid off of this top. Lots of New RELEASES… Tons of things to be interested in as of late.
C.K. Winx released his Phat Azz, and I spent the last week adjusting my shape to fit and I have a few tips to add on to the suggestions CK Made.

On top of that we have the arrival of the very much anticipated mirage breasts. I’ll be doing a clear blog on presentation and the difference between Tango’s and Mirage.

The Wilderness

Here’s My tips!

1. Make sure you edit your hip width… It’s very important to get a nice full round bottom. Other wise you end up with what I call a shelf azz… Trust me its not pretty.
2. After setting your belly fat to 16 make a point to set body fat to Two This keeps the crease on the back from appearing.
3. Body Fat does not play a roll in how your mesh ass appears. whats great about liquid mesh is it will most certainly form to your shape as best it can.
4. My final tip and this should be common sense… DEMO everything for your lower half!!! I mean EVERYTHING.
