Nouveau chez / New at: AOHARU & FNKY!

Machang Pichot, designer behind “Aoharu,” creates very interesting pieces of clothing. She succeeds, IMHO, in mixing realism and hand drawn effect in her items. I’m showing you today “ColorDenim” (will be followed with many other as soon as I will have a bit of time!).

They come in tons of colors, some in gradations of colors (shown). Colors are subtle, textures are well shadowed, and I really like them! Each color pack comes with a set of pre-sized sculpty cuff attachments. They are moddable for a perfect fit. I didn’t show you them, since I’m still not convinced of sculpty cuffs for pants.

Now that so many designers work hard to avoid seams in their textures, these attachments rarely match the layer texture. The lighting plays differently on them than on the layers as well.
Fortunately, Machang’s pants are nicely designed on the pants layer, so they are just fine without cuffs! They don’t show the ugly “jagged bottom bug” that I wish more designers knew how to avoid, instead of spending time with not so useful prim attachments. (Speaking of that, I will do a post very soon, explaining how to design pants textures without the jagged bottom bug, a technical post, not directly useful to customers, but it will maybe help them to buy more nice pants without being forced to wear cuffs on them for a perfect finish!)

I chose to mix these hand drawn jeans with photorealistic sneakers from FNKY! Funk Schnook released his “Racers” recently, and I found them fitting well together. As usual, Funk’s building is perfect. They are scripted so you can adjust them precisely to fit your avatar size. Plus, a script allows you to choose to show or not show the laces knot, for a perfect finish with long pants! Much kudos to Funk for that. The twelve available colors are sold one by one or in a nicely priced full pack!
I was about to write I would like the colors to be more subdued. But I went to FNKY! store for the usual checking before posting, and just saw the “Racers2,” brand new release of the Racers in ten new more subdued colors! YAY!

Just a quick note about the skateboard from the Skateboard Store and Park: it comes in three versions in each color/graphic pattern pack you can buy for 600 Lindens. One to wear in hand (shown) one in a back pack and THE one you can ride, scripted, with many tricks included, and a very sophisticated scripting allowing you to create trick series. I’m sure you will enjoy it!
