Review and credits after the jump!

I’m showing today a new shirt and sweater combo from Mif Yifu for “Endeavor.” Each of the ten color packs available offers on both jacket and shirt layer, with a complement on the underpants layer, three versions: shirt and cream sweater combo, shirt and dark grey sweater combo, and shirt alone (this one on the jacket layer only). You will also get a pair of cuffs and three versions of sculpted collar, with cream turtleneck, grey turtleneck and collar alone. Everything is moddable for a perfect adjustment. I have to say the pattern Mif chose for this combo is one of the most difficult to work on male avatars, and she did a god job with it!

Quality: 3.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers for each item, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4.5/5 - Price: 2.5/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

These new sneakers from Truth bring the best of what I’m waiting for in sl fashion creations: realistic shape (here you’ll get a premium sculpty work), with a precise texture that gives a realistic look without looking too obviously photosourced. They come in 13 color combinations, each color pack offering two presized pairs for men and women, each of them resizable by menu. They fit nicely our oh so wide sl feet without annoying use of invisiprims. You have to give them a try. Good news, free demos are available! Pay extra attention when you choose your pair, zoom closely and set your lighting to get a neutral light, since the colors Truth Hawks created can be pretty close but yet different for some of them!

I’m also wearing a cap and hair combo by Rika Oyen for “Argrace.” It’s a nice one, with a recolor scripted hat, but since it’s no mod, you can’t adjust individual hair prims to fit your head shape. The only adjustment you can do, beside moving the combo, is to resize it by menu driven script; with certain head shapes, adjustment might be tricky, so, more then ever, I advise you to try the demo before buying! This combo comes in 6 beautiful hair color textures. I chose the black jeans from Unknown Jewell for “Unknown Boutique;” it is more than fairly priced and comes with two different shapes of sculpty cuffs. To achieve the look, I picked a ring from Mhaijik Guillaume for “Guillaume pour homme,” in gold with a cool orange animated and supposedly hypnotizing texture ;-) Enjoy!
