So, today something for the guys! During May, I spotted a tiny vendor at the medieval fantasy sim Estara which caught my eyes almost immediately: Kahli Designs. They had ONE outfit there. At first I was ‘suspicious’: Probably a template. And another newby store “Avatarname Designs”. Granted, not all of these are newby stores, but there does seem to be a pattern. But for some reason, that didn’t quite add up with my gutfeeling. I couldn’t remember having seen that kind of tunic anywhere else and the vendors seemed too wellmade.
“Probably ripped.” Was my next pessimistic, sarcastic and dumb thought. I showed the vendors to friends, but still, my gutfeeling told me “No, this is cool.” So I bought it. And yay! I really liked it and I contacted the vendor, Viland resident/KahliDesigns Resident. I asked him about it, he turned out to be very nice and he told me that they were going to provide selfmade meshitems for guys mostly. More YAY! Not like there isn’t ENOUGH awesome mesh for guys already, while we girls get a horde of gowns and not much else (besides from The Forge and now GSpot), but it was still awesome. So we decided to invite them to We Love Role-Play, and we never regretted it.
So many good things to say!
It’s been three months since then and now I see Kahli Designs all over the place. They release new items on a regular basis and so far, NONE of them was a disappointment for me. Their meshes are really wellmade and always happen to fit my male alt quite well. Their styles range from rustic to finer attire. I love the textures and the attention to detail on them, plus: Their outfits seem realistic: When wearing these, you can truly picture them being worn back during medievalish times. Imho at least!
In these pictures Iorveth is wearing four items by Kahli Designs: The vest with shirt is part of the outfit that is currently available for a discount at We Love Role-Play. Pants, Boots and Necklace are part of a new release which is called The Brawler. I really like these pants a lot. The texture on the vest is really nice and gives the outfit the intended royal touch. Also, the inner side of the outfit is textured, too, where it is necessary, so no ugly invisibility depending on your perspective.
A few suggestions though!
I would LOVE it if you could mix and match Kahli Design’s outfit randomly. These pants leave a little glitch on his backside (covered up with the belt, so no big deal) even though I wear them in size XS and the vest in L. Plus, I think 5 sizes would be nicer than ‘just’ four. Also, I’d love to see a little more details on the boots. They are not bad at all, but a buckle, straps, lacings or something such would be soo nice. And…please male womens’ stuff?
PS: I really need to update my male alt, but it hurts me badly to buy hair for an alt I never use. *whines*. I also noticed my arms seem kinda short in that pose. Hmmm. -.-

You really should visit this sim by the way. It is called Winter Moon and SO pretty. I am not sure what it is supposed to be other than a pretty sim where you can hang out at.
