note to self first: Never again will I take pictures when SL is having server issues. One hour to get stuff attached is no fun. Also, never again will I log out to clear cache without having saved my outfit. Amen. Also, I tried around with PS some more. Not sure! I will have to work on it. Still though, my pics are only subtly processed. Windlight helps a lot.
That said, The Arcade started, and god damnit, someone hold me back please I spent a fortune there, for stuff I do not really need. But, the overall quality of items there is SO GOOD that I often just play the machines because I want to support the creator. Sooo many beautifully made items with VERY few that imho couldn’t quite keep up this round. I am impressed.
Just one thing: 64 LI for a ugly bag in which you sell your item, that does NOT deliver, neither upon click nor upon attaching it, is ridiculous. Because frankly, if it is 64, I expect a damned palace of a bag, not some crappy lil white box. No wonder I have not seen any La Gyo items at any yardsales. BIG grumble!
D!va hair by Marisa Kira is in The Arcade this round. I am usually a bit on the fence about her hair, but this one was too cute to not pick it up. Thank you Anemysk Karu, for giving me the red version! Marisa usually makes very soft, girly hair, with long, thin strands. I am always a bit sad that there are so few red options, but the hair is tintable (though the hairbase is not,so if you need it, that does not help!). This updo comes, as always, in two options (separate plays on the gacha though!) and I think it is very, very cute. I think it might be favourite updo for now!
Not long ago, Coral Lacey blogged this bolero by Chronokit. I instantly went to buy it, though admittedly I didn’t check…and it is Liquid mesh. Chronokit is known for their extremely welldone items and this one didn’t disappoint me in regards to quality either. I love the ruffles and the cute texture. Plus, the fatpack is only 350L for a bucnh of colors, so that is really a good deal. The price for one color was something around 100L I think.
However? It is so called liquid mesh. It only comes in one size that supposedly automatically adapts to your shape. I am NOT a big fan of liquid mesh when the item isn’t also offered in the usual standard sizes. Why? Because with liquid mesh, layering becomes a god damned chore. It was mad work to get this outfit to fit because -everything- had to be built around the bolero which only came in that one, self-adapting size. Blah.
What do you think of Liquid mesh? Do you think it is a good idea to sell items as liquid mesh only or should sizes still be included?
Oh, and one thing about the boots: I only detected they have a zipper on the back when I was already taking the pics. Ahem. I suppose they still work for skirts though.
