Body Positive - Nouveau chez / New release at: “Minnu Model Skins”, Men Gen 3.

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

Another release of men’s skins! The time when our choice of very good skins was limited to…one (a bit more than one year ago)… is definitely over! With this last release, Minnu Model Skins offers us an excellent and versatile skin. Gen 3 Men from Thora Charron shows the same athletic body as the previous versions. The muscles are VERY defined (way more than the new updated Envision I showed you a few days ago). The skins have some hair on the forearms and thighs for more realism and come in 3 chest hair versions (see below). Fragile guys who are afraid of waxing will be happy with this skin! :-D

Minnu Model Skin Gen 3 Men is available in 6 color tones. This is one of the widest palettes of natural tones you can find on the market. Each comes in 12 facial hair and makeup options (shown below as well).

What is new on these Gen 3 Men skins from Minnu Model Skin, compared to the previous model? The face, mainly. It can now fit a wide range of shapes, and the definition is truly improved. Brows were reworked, too. On the body, legs and feets are totally redone and improved.

Soon, you will be offered a goth skin tone version, a blond version, and some more face options.

You can have your favorite skin for 1700 Lindens (including bald and hair version), or a pack of 6 facial options (same tone, same chest hair option) for 9000 Lindens.

What I like: the choice of natural skin tones; the originality of some facial options; the choice between 3 chest hair versions.
What I wish: a true black skin; a little better definition of the feet; a more generous rebate on the multipack.

As usual, when it comes to showing you skins, I use designers’ shapes. You will see on the main composites and chest hair options composite a shape from Flesh Peddler by Vasean Talamasca. His shapes are good, come only in moddable version and have a very fair price: you can get one of them for 200 Lindens. Vasean is humble enough to consider his shapes not like achieved artwork, but as a basis to build our own. He is perfectly aware of what designers’ shapes should be: helpers to create faster and in an easier way a personalized shape. How far from the unbelievably pretentious words of some shape sellers who claim to make (at delusional prices) not only shapes but people, no less! :-D

You will find also (on color tones composites) a shape from Taco Taco Taco by Marissa Racecourse who offers cool moddable shapes at reasonable prices, and whose ads show shapes naked, simply dressed, and closeups of the face with different skins, a great idea and a true help for the customers. I wish I could see this more often in shops, instead of “stylishly” dressed models on pictures not showing how the shape really looks. Last but not least, Marissa offers a demo for her shapes (with oversized hands and feet). There is no better way to choose, looking at a shape at every angle with the skin of your choice!

  3. Ah, never mind! I see what you’re doing now, with a single list of designer SLurls.

  4. Otenth: yes, this is a way to have always updated slurls, since it was impossible to update each of them on each post when they changed! Now on a single page you can have a convenient way to tp at designer’s shops with one click!

  7. I have a MM skin for one of my characters, it is wonderful, BUT, has pubes. I wish the designer would offer a range of body hair options as well as face hair options. A pubeless version would be wonderful.

    It looks like, unlike max, upgrades are not being offered for this version?
