Vasean Talamasca pointed me to this awesome Trin’s Alpha Layer Set Pro on XStreetSL that includes alpha textures to hide system lashes and various body parts. This set is so useful and awesome, so I promised that I would share it with all of you guys.

The alpha layer set includes 7 different alpha textures for your head, so you can choose to hide a little or a lot! They also include two types of textures: hide just the head area, or hide the head area & system lashes. As someone who wears prim lashes like it’s my religion, I opted to wear the “hide lashes”  version.

A hair fitting well after stretching is always best, but some hairstyles do need a little bit of help, especially if the creator’s profile is much shorter than your own. This is a great quick-fix solution, and I’m really thankful that it’s available.

The Trin’s Alpha Layer Set Pro 1.0 is sold full perm with permission to re-distribute but I am urging everyone to buy your own set to support Trin Trevellion and thank her for creating such a wonderful set. It’s 10L!

    It’s pure genius! I’m sure everyone, at one point or another, has been frustrated by how the eyelashes stick out (even though they’re set at ‘0’) when you’re adjusting prim lashes. They made adjusting them a breeze. Sooo awesome! Thanks for letting everyone know about these!

    Yeah but wearing this would remove face tattoos or makeup layers or whatever people use, wouldn’t it?

    • Gogo

      You can wear up to 5 layers > right click ADD in your inventory 🙂

      • Darkharmony

        Keep in mind that the 5 layers thing is only on viewer 2.0 and the ones that are like it (ie Kirstens). It is currently not in very many 3rd party viewers like phoenix, imprudence etc.

      RE: Face tattoos/makeup layers are completely different from Alpha layers. Wearing an Alpha layer will never remove a tattoo layer, skin, t-shirt, shoes, etc. They can be worn simultaneously. In fact, shoe designers who provide alphas expect the shoe base and alpha to be worn together.

      Alphas are simply designed to make parts of the body invisible without the need to encase attachments around invisible-scripted prims. Thus avoiding the clash of these attachments with other textures that use an alpha channel, like what you see when high heels go on alpha’d grass. They take up a category separate from the other articles our avies wear.

      Sorry, I’m a bit anal retentive when it comes to misinformation. I hope this clears things up.

      • Gogo

        Yep you’re totally right! I just doubled check, this is indeed an Alpha layer and can also be worn multiple times as well.

    Thank you Gogo for sharing this. I can’t wait to try out the hide lashes option. 😀

    I don’t generally have much trouble with hair, but I am unduly excited by the lash thing.

  10. Kalel Mommsen

    Hello, i bought the Trins Alpha Layer Set Pro 1.0, can anyone tell me how i add the alpha mask (texture) to the alpha layer? (shirt- in inventory)

    • Gogo

      In your inventory, go to the (+) plus sign and select Add New Alpha; then edit that alpha layer, and put in the lashes texture from Trin’s pack, save it, then wear it 🙂

      • Echo

        Thank you so much Gogo and Trin, just brilliant!!! 🙂 xoxox
