I’m not obsessed
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
I must confess that clothing appliers amuse me. After all, when I began back in 2007, most clothing was made of textures applied on the avatar’s system layer. Details like buttons and collars and cuffs were usually drawn on and even photo sourced clothing had an air of unreality to it. Flexis and sculpts added depth and form, but they did not add verisimilitude. And then came mesh and there was a revolution in fashion where most of the design effort was focused on the forms, the shape, the buttons, collars and other details and the fabrics were added later. Because the barriers to entry for mesh creation are higher in terms of skills and software, several designers retreated and retired. Now that mesh bodies have replaced the system body for thousands of us, we are back to applying textures, this time on the mesh body. It does seem like we have come full circle – though with a distinct revolution in quality.
For example, this swimsuit from MiaMai is put on with an applier. It’s from the quarterly My Slink Obsession event that opens tomorrow. Certainly there are lots of mesh swimsuits and even several that don’t flash unsuspecting bystanders, though I think they are in the minority. However an applied swimsuit has its advantages, especially for those bystanders when one is sitting down and shifting positions in a chair. Another reason to love appliers is how much easier it makes layering. All of us have struggled with trying on a dozen blouses trying to fine one that will fit under a jacket and longed for the days of system clothing when layering was as easier as one, two, three. This brings back that ease coupled with the higher quality of the mesh body.
Almost everything can be found at My Slink Obsession, including those fabulous shoes from Basta! and really, there can never be enough when the shoes are that sexy, so it’s a good thing they come in several bright summer colors. The lovely mani-pedi appliers are from A.S.S. and likewise are at My Slink Obsession.
A few things are not from My Slink Obsession. I’m not obsessed. The lounger is from The Loft and the house from Trompe Loeil and both are at Collabor88 for just a few more days. The hair is from Wasabi Pills and was just released at FaMESHed. It comes with a color change HUD to change the wrapped hair bands. The necklace and bracelet are from Mandala and the earrings are from Maxi Gossamer.
The skin is YS&YS and is at My Slink Obsession and it is applied to the Slink Physique body and Visage Head, Becky. It is so adorable on the Becky head that the cliche “It almost looks like it was made for it” popped into my head. Then I remembered, it WAS made for it. I added a lipstick from KoKoLoRes, another My Slink Obsession treat. But really, I am not obsessed.
