Nouveau chez / New at “Civvies” and “Negko Design”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Costume, Dressy, Night | Saturday, April 12th, 2008

Negko DeVinna has put together a creative batch of skins called Orphee Chapter 1 - The Long Journey. The days don’t really make sense to me, but who am I to question the motives or creativity of a designer? Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — that’s 10 skins for $888. I’m pretty sure it’s differences in facial hair from one day to the next. This skin I’m wearing is Day 18. Made me feel like a beatnik, which fit perfectly with Posy Trudeau’s new Vasean coat (she calls it a coat; I’d call it a jacket). The whole outfit begged to be shown in a psychedelic atmosphere. This is the brown version of the coat; it also comes in black, red and green.

I think my main complaint about the skin is the hands…they look odd to me. But I’ve only made a fleeting attempt at making a skin and I never even got to the hands. I’m sure they’re difficult as hell. And 888L for 10 skins is quite a deal. Just shove your hands in your pockets!

My only complaint about the coat, which I think is very nicely textured and has a good cut, is that the collar prevents one from wearing a necklace, since they both have the same attachment point. And yeah, I probably could have messed around with attaching either of them to a different point, but that defeats the purpose of ease of use.

Jacket: Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 3/5 - Price:3/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

The outfit is finished off with Aitui’s Reborn pants in black, and the JCS’s Oslo boots in brown. Hair is “Wentz” by Truth.

  1. Hehehe, yes, I know about this ‘hand controversy’.
    Some of my friends are big fans of them, some others would like them to be ’softer’.
    As I see it, Orphee is a hero with a quest through Darkness and hell. So he faces danger, has to fight. His skin is a bit rougher than fashion models :).
    On next chapter, Orphee will stop at a barber shop for several variations around the goatee.
    Maybe he’ll take care of his hands with a moisturizer :)
    Many thanks to you guys for the highlight on my work, keep doing the good job this great blog alive!

  2. Haha, Negko! Well, that certainly explains it…

    I love the story you’ve woven around the character of these skins!
