The Secret Store for Modavia Fashion Week

The Secret Store - Babydoll 2

Yeah! It is over! The Secret Store show for the Modavia Fashion week has happened and we were given the opportunity to admire fantastic knit wear ranging from cute to very sexy like the Babydoll set which has inspired me these Marie-Antoinette revisited pictures. Made of a gorgeous bodysuit, over-knee socks, cute gloves, a girly bow and a lovely sweater, this set could easily be worn in a much wiser way by adding a skirt to it.

The next set I have picked is Sequoia. I love how it has a bourgeoise feeling to it thanks to the pencil skirt.

The sets are available for purchase at the Modavia Fashion Week event.

About colors

Hello,

Bobo Blue 2

Yesterday, I have been using another computer to show the last pictures I had taken to a friend. while I did that, I was struck by a change of the colors which were not at all the way I remembered them. They used to be a bit more vivid, asif a orange warm filter was applied all the time. Later, I told about this to a another friend who told me she was seeing them a bit whitsh and then advised me to check my screen settings. After some quick tests, it was quite obvious I was lacking some blue and green and have reajusted my screen settings.

I now see things quite differently. A fun detail is I have always thought my pictures had too much red or yellow so I was trying to correct them thanks to the curves in photoshop. Now, I see them much paler than what I thought. I guess I will have to change my windlight settings for the next pictures.

About the styling now. The new tunic and tied big belt from Fishy Strawberry have inspired me this hippie chic look with a new feather vest from So Many Styles (which I have slightly recolored to match the belt). For the chic part, the EXPERT hairstyle from LeLutka is adding a luxury touch.

I am also wearing the new skin from ADDICT, RAIA. I like the way it looks feminine and less sweet and young than a lot of other skins on my avatar. It is definately worth a try though it does not come with plenty of options like we are used to with many skins now, but dark and light eyebrows. You cannot change the eyeshadow or the lipstick with tattoo layers made specifically for Raia and the cleavage option is on the undershirt layer. Old viewers people will be happy to find a skin built the old way while new viewer peoples might feel like this is not enough. It is still a beautiful skin which should suit a lot of ladies.

Ok… What’s new?

Hello,

Hydrangea_004

Lately, I have seen several complaints from people that designers they liked were not making mesh stuff yet. The important words to remember in the last sentence are “designers” and “not yet”. Probably most people have missed the following fact, or they don’t care about it, but most of the good mesh clothes we are having at our disposal are made from the same full permissions templates, designed by Damien Fate who is offering us high quality products, setting a high standard from the start for other mesh creators. Some people who are using those templates are adding value to the product, offering us a nice texturing work, adding their touch. Others are just assembling a mesh and a random texture. They don’t care if the final result is ugly, people are taken in the mesh crazyness and will buy it anyway, ugly or not, added value or not. Of course, there is nothing new about this: what was occuring with sculpties is occuring with meshes. Unfortunately, that is not new that many people have forgotten about being objectively critical.

To illustrate my writings, I have chosen a funky dress from The Secret Store which is still available for one more week at the Dressing Room. I have picked this one for two reasons. First, it does not need to be mesh stuff to be awesome. Maylee Oh is spoiling us with something you can call real designing work, her creations are unique. You will not find the same sculpted prims on other people’s clothes. Second, Maylee is a perfectionnist. She is very able to create mesh, she has already started, but she wants it to be very good, designed by herself, before she releases something, like she has always been doing with any of her creations. I believe a lot of designers are busy lately discovering the new possibilites, and very soon they will release awesome new creations. Others are happy to share with us their first creations as group gifts. When you are trying those gifts, please always remember they are work in progress, that the designers are getting their hands at this new toy and that they, at least, have the courage to learn and try something new.

Now, it is up to you to see which are your quality standards. I am happy with some clothes made from full permissions templates if they have added value. I am even happier with unique original creations and if I have to be patient to get that, I am glad to wait. I am much less happy about people who have forgotten (nerver had?) their objective critical mind and dare bitching about brands which do not have mesh yet. But yeah… that is not new.

In Laq Thea Skin

To end this post on a positive note, here is the new LAQ Thea skin. On my shape it looks a bit more mature than their last faces so I am a happy customer with a pretty new skin.
