So, rather recently, I was pointed to a hairstore that has been around since a while but never really caught my attention until now: Underscore! Plus, Stitched released this really cute rustic tunic and several other items have been tossed onto the grid. I Hope you like my more rustic outfit this time.
Please bear in mind that this is a review for a hair that is the second attempt of Nikolai Dionysus at original mesh hair and I think for that it is damned decent. As mentioned, Underscore never really made it to my attention because most of their simply didn’t suit my taste. I am glad that the co-owner, Syndel Daviau, sort of shoved their last released in my face and was kind enough to even re-send it when I was too blonde to find it in my inventory. So, I promised to have a look at it and didn’t expect too much at first…and then was pleasantly surprised. First of all, the hair comes in THREE different texture variants: Smooth, realistic and fierce. ‘Fierce’ is very strongly shaded hair that kind of looks rough, ‘smooth’ is the exact opposite, very much like most hairs out there. Realistic is my actual preference! It has nice highlights and slightly stronger shading, but doesn’t look as rugged ats ‘fierce’. I like the red tones. They come in all kinds of variants from ginger to actual red, however, the colours slightly differ depending on the kind of texture you chose. The hair is HUD driven and comes a ta price of 250 Lindens which I think is very fair. The overall meshwork seems pretty well done, however I do wish the strands were a little smoother and less chunky. You can see the slightly chunky strands of the bangs in the pic below. The parting, too, could be a little smoother, however that is something MANY hair designers struggle with.The style itself is very cute and feminine and flows nicely over the shoulder. It did not interfere with my meshclothes at all! Overall I have to say I am glad I did take a look at this and while I think some improvements can be done (as expected, second try!!!), this is a very nice start into the original mesh area and most definitely worth to keep an eye on.
Adele Bumblefoot of Stitched released another really cute item. I have been looking around desperately for nice, somewhat flared tunics the past weeks and never found much that really seemed to fit what I imagined. This tunic however hit the nail on the head (is that how you say it? :D). It looks really cute with the natural colours and the slightly torn look.The wrinkles seem natural and welldone. I really liked the belt it comes with but I would like it event more of it had a bow/lacings/a buckle or something else. The texture is very soft and remind sme a lot of suede. I do think if these tunics came in a dirty version, too, or with a more rugged looking texture, they were pretty much perfect!
