My homestead is slowly coming along and I am starting to wonder why so many people complain about there being too few prims. Well, sure, if you want to build an entire city around the whole sim…that’s not gonna work out. But with forests, a harbor, a campa dn a village, I am still doing pretty well. Thought the decorating part still scares me! ;D Friends are very welcome to visit anytime!! Just shoot me an IM.
My friend Adele Bumblefoot of Stitched is stuck in a total designing flow. Today, she dropped two folders with boots on me. I already liked her first attempt at boots though those had a bit of a bland feel to them still. However, these ones are really, really detailed and nice. They come in several colors of which I am displaying the brown tone. I love, love and love those straps with the buttons on them and the nice leathery feel the texture displays. Very unique details! Also, the wrinkles on the calf are really well done and give them a used and worn look. These are handmade mesh, too! However, I am still not 100% happy about the footshape. Imho, the tip is a wee bit too sharp, the look of it doesn’t make much sense when you consider the whole shape of the boot. I am not sure, but sharp tips on boots, isn’t that cowbow style? :D But, it is really a minor thing. The foot itself is already a big improvement compared to her older boots as it is much less flat. I think for future version of these a worn, scratched leathertexture would be really awesome.
Searlait Nitschke of Roawenwood (and 5&20) is usually known for furniture. Many forget that she offers clothes as well. This corset, which was sent to me by a friend, is really to my liking. I enjoy the tough look it has and I muchly enjoy those straps that go over my shoulder. It gives it a realistic feel. Now I can explain how it stays where it should stay while my elf is fighting! :P The texture and choice of colours is welldone, even if the leather looks a wee bit too clean for my taste. However, I will probably combine this with a lot of outfits.It looks like ideal riding/hunting gear for any kind of female badass character. I do believe (!) this piece is a template, but I may be wrong. Even if so, I enjoy it’s look greatly. It also comes with a nice pouch and unlike soooo many other corsets, this one is asymmetrical which is hard to mix and match, but once you’ve managed it, it looks fantastic. It also has nice lacings on the back! The only thing that does not appeal AS much to me are the…what are they called…uhh…latchings?..on front of it. Maybe working with a texture that supports the tiny details would have helped here. However, all in all, I really like this piece!
