I’ve been seeing several people wear Mother Goose skin so I went to the store to check it out. I’m wearing one of the newest release, Esmeralda, and it’s very pretty at first glance but upon closer inspection, I feel that this skin needs a lot of work.
The skin tones are not given names, but numbers. I am wearing tone 2 and tone 3 – each skin tone comes with 4 makeups and also freckles version.
I’m very impressed with the freckles on these! They’re subtle and complements the skin tone perfectly. I also like the no-freckles version too.
Here are some things this skin does NOT do well…. there are seams all over the legs, arms, and torso (pretty much everywhere). That’s bad. Seams are bad! Some seams you can live with, some you can’t… if it’s pretty much all over, that is sloppy. I also think the textures is sloppy throughout, here are some examples below:
When it comes to skin texture, I truly believe that less is more. If you put too much or don’t blend it well enough, the area looks like skin disease or something. It is not a nice effect at all.
I’ve seen some pretty ugly toes in SL, but I’ve never seen toes that don’t extend all the way. These toes are not ugly, but the texture needs to be extended further so it doesn’t look gross (odd) when you wear flip-flops or open-toed shoes.
The Esmeralda skins from Mother Goose costs $1,000L per pack of 4 or $300L each. These skin are pretty and I wish they were done with more attention to details. Hopefully the creator will improve the future releases because right now, I feel that with these.. “you get what you pay for” which is average or slightly below average skins for a cheap price. They’re like cheap shoes, it’s great to wear for a little while but they don’t really hold up to well.
