Toki Doki Haru Jacket in Black

TokiD Noir

Sometimes, when you have an idea in mind to create an outfit, it is tough to forget about it. I wanted to use the new Toki Doki Haru jacket. I like its simple cut, it is a basic for any wardrobe, be it the cute type or a more sophisticate one. But I wanted it in black and it didn’t exist. The flower prints and the solid colors are great but it was not what I had in mind. After asking Maya Levane, Toki Doki’s designer, if it was available, she was very kind to make a black version for me. So I really want to say a big thank you to Maya for being super cute and helping me so kindly.

If you are interested, there are three colors of the jacket available at The Dressing Room Fusion and much more colors at the Toki Doki mainstore.

The Secret Store Babydoll

Lizbeth Babydoll

Maylee Oh has a new babydoll dress at The Secret Store with seven different textures including hand dyed patterns, lace and geometric designs, going from sweet and girly to more modern pattrerns. I have picked the Graph It Up one for this picture for its sixties touch.

While you are at The Secret Store, get the Lady Swing Skirt, a long retro skirt with a lovely belt shaped as a rose. The crimson color is a bargain for Lazy Sunday.

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.

Hydrangea

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.
