New jacket, new skin, new pants… my god, has Nigel shed his hermitness?
So lets start with the skin. Brand new from -Labyrinth-, I have to admit, I was skeptical regarding this skin from the first second I saw the notice in one of the new SL item groups. In my years, I’ve become so paranoid about alts and content theft, a sudden new designer popping up and I’m skeptical. The creator is a mere 3 weeks old. Of course it could simply be a current creator wanting a new line. I went out and hit up a bunch of other male skin creators and compared them. My untrained eye didn’t see any obvious “this is the same skin” anywhere, so I took the plunge.
The skin is beautifully done. The hands- the backs of the knees- the legs- the shading on the muscles- the arms- there’s nothing about this skin I don’t like. The package comes with two different body hairs as tattoo layers (full body and just a navel trail). Its important to note that if you wear a body tattoo, you have to wear the body hair first and then apply the tattoo over it. The body-hair alpha will block out anything you have on under it. There are fatpacks in each of the 10 shades with more than a dozen different facial hair options for a hefty $5000L or a single facial hair (or in my case, clean shaven) for $1100L. All packages come with the body hair options.
The jacket is from R3v0lt. What drew me to the jacket first were the cuffs. I love the diagonal curve with the buttons. I own a coat very much like this in RL and wore it into the ground before it took its place in the closet for special ocassions only. My serial stalkers can attest to my fascination with wrinkles and shading and oh this jacket has them in spades. Absolutely beautifully done, what absolutely can not compare to any other jacket I’ve seen so far are the buttons. Perfectly round- perfectly placed- shaded and lovely. The highlights and wrinkles on the tails aren’t to be missed either.
The pants are another new acquisition from my recent shopping spree at insanya. Made for women, they come with cute little checkered rolled cuffs at, unsurprisingly enough, capris level on the calves. Pop those off and slap on a pair of boots and they’re instantly ‘long pants’. Guys will have to swing their camera inside your body to grab the thigh pockets- since they’re made for women and all.
Serial Stalkers will also note that I’m using cuts now on the blog. I’ve seen them of course, just about everyone uses cuts to see more. I personally don’t care for them. I prefer to scroll down a page and see everything rather than have to cut and go back, cut and go back… however, in my general newness to Srsly Blogging(tm), I made some assumptions regarding formatting that were apparently wildly incorrect. Thanks to Ms. Darkley and her Idiots Guide, I learned something new today!
I had assumed that Feeds had their own formatting and, like my page, would hard cut the photo to fit their format like it does on my page. It doesn’t matter what size I upload to my blog, it hardfits to the width of my page and doesn’t “Scroll over” or “bleed out”. While walking through the various feeds I’m on, I’ve also never actually seen an image too big that broke the format so it never crossed my mind. However, as you’ll see on Darkley’s post above, they do!
Be kind and cut!
