Nouveau chez / New at “Minnu Model Skins” and “Corrupted Innocence”

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Friday, February 1st, 2008

• Another release of men’s skins at Minnu Model Skins! Less than 3 weeks after “Gen 3 for men” skin, Thora Charron offers us “Sexy,” a variation of Gen3. The differences are mostly in the skin tones and available facial options.

Showing Minnu Model Skin Men Sexy in Medium without chesthair, with complementary hair (offered with each pack.)

Skin tones are more naturally dark skin than suntanned skin (in Gen3) for the darkest tones. So the skin colors are less warm, more matte brown. It’s a very interesting alternative. The skins come in only two chest hair options (shown below) while Gen3 offers three. Eyebrows are slightly different, more straight. But the main change, and for me the most interesting, is the choice of facial hair and makeup offered. First, there are three different chin beard options. Chin beards are cool and sexy for sure! You can also get a rugged beard (like three days long of a very brown beard), and a shaven version. But there’s more! Each facial hair option comes in natural and eyelinered version! Eyeliner suits very well Asian and naturally dark skins, so the eyeliner is a perfect complement of the “sexy” skin tones.

You can have your favorite skin for 1700 Lindens (including bald and hair version), a pack of two skins (same tone, same chest hair option, same facial hair option, including with and without eyeliner in bald and hairy version) for 2500 Linden, or a pack of 5 facial options (same tone, same chest hair option, same makeup option, in bald and hairy version) for 6000 Lindens. Note that you will be offered in each pack a complementary hair working with the hairy version of the skins (shown below).

Available skin tones and chest hair options:

More pictures after the jump! (Facial hair and makeup options)

What I like: the quality of the chin beard options, the handsome facial features (same as the Gen3), the choice between 2 chest hair versions, plus yes, the back is sexy!

What I wish: a light stubble facial hair version. I like “rugged,” but a sexy skin should have a five o’clock shadow version ;-) ; a better definition of the feet, surprisingly less good than the other parts of the skin (same problem as withthe Gen3). Because i’m an insatiable freak, I would like a toned but less defined muscle option. I think we can have sexy avatars who don’t look like they spend 4 hours a day at the gym! Hey, we need time too to develop a smart mind and grab some culture, it’s part of sexiness too, no? :-D

• As usual, when it comes to showing you skins, I use designers’ shapes. I used today a shape from Alexxis Laszlo who just started a joint venture with Kira Paderborn named “Corrupted innocence,” such a program! They sell shapes, moddable shapes of course. I chose “Derrick” because I found he had an interesting and original face. (You have to choose your shape for the face, a moddable shape of course, then adjust the body to your own taste, I swear it’s not so difficult, and pretty fun!) Consider a designer shape as a start for the creation of your very own avatar. I modified slightly the body of Derrick to suit my needs for the shooting, it took me no more than a few minutes.

I tried out “MMS Sexy” with a few dozen designer shapes. The skin is pretty versatile. it looks better though with avatars whose lips are not too thin (if your avie has thin lips, you might appreciate “Damien,” “Darcy” and “Jared,” the best skins from Sachi Vixen @ Adam n’ Eve [Designer, Address & SLURL], just FYI

  2. I second that Mac. I tried on the demos and the skin tones just looked very off.
