Does a store build matter? Absolutely. I don’t really mind if a store is built badly (or no build at all), as long as the vendors can be seen clearly. This was not the case when I went to Filthy Skins a few weeks ago; the store was so blindingly bright and all the interior textures were tinted Blue, so I couldn’t see anything! I ran from the store as fast as I could after grabbing demos and didn’t think about these skins until last night.
After trying on several faces, I settled on this Candy skin. I think it’s lovely, and very “me” except for the Pale tone (worn below) is not really my idea of Pale, but more like a warm Sunkissed tone. Despite being too tan, I still wanted this, and I will try to make it work with Blonde hair, but I must warn you I look a bit like Snooky’s Blonde sister 😀
Check out Candy in Pale Tone:
I love this face! And it’s perfect for Dark Brown hair, but maybe even OK on Blondes.
Do you guys think the skin is more suited for Brunette or Blonde hair?
I’m really glad I gave Filthy Skins another look, cos I think I may have found a new favorite skin store.
Kyoot released the new Last Thread Tanks this weekend and they’re so pretty! I think the cleavage is so sexy, and the loose thread at the bottom of the tank is just a great touch. Howeverrrrr….. the side seams really bugs me! I know Saeya Nyanda can do better seams than this, cos it just feels incomplete to me, to not align it, and also not add side-shading to create a more “finished” look.
I’ve posted an example of what I think is great seams on a striped top from Ingenue. I love how Betty Doyle lined her textures up nearly perfectly, and also added shading along the seams.
For most of us who take photos staring straight ahead, the side seam is rarely ever seen, but what happens when you DO notice it? Designers who take more care into creating nice seams really sets themselves apart from designers who do not.
