Body Positive: New skins at “Signature”

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Monday, July 14th, 2008

Hi guys! I’m so happy to introduce today a new range of skins! One more occasion to allow men not to look like clones! YAY!

Simple Spad runs the new brand Signature and just released six skins to fit many needs.
Alika is a young caucasian, brunette, with a bit of a dark side. Looks maybe in his early twenties.
Chase is maybe in his late twenties or early thirties, brunette as well, perfect guy next door type.
Daniel is blonde! Yes, at last another blonde skin! Young as well, with lighter facial hair and eyebrows.
Jose is a dark young brunette, with a dark complexion.
Kevon is a young black guy.
Lee is a young Asian type.
Each of them comes in 3 tones (medium one shown on the composites below), accorded to the skin type, in eight facial hair options (shown below spread on the different composites), each with and without eyeliner option (shaven face with eyeliner shown on each skin composite, top-right picture, without eyeliner in various facial options on the other face pictures).
The body is smooth with no body hair option for now.
They are, as usual in SL, pretty athletic looking, with well defined abs and pecs.
They are fairly priced, at 1000 linden each, with two fatpacks available, all 8 facials with or without eyeliner for 5000 Lindens.

• What I like: the diversity of types offered, skin and hair colors; the interesting facial features, good looking without being too much photosourced (well i should say the post processing of photosource material has been done in depth to make the skin not showing it too obviously, avoiding the weird look you can get with very photorealistic skins); some details on the face are really good, like nose, eyebrows, lips; prices are good.

• What I wish: Better feet (but it’s always the weak point on skins… SL fault); better ears, those would be worth a bit more work; smoother shading and highlighting; a more detailed body; a painted hair option, as we can get with many skins, so usefull when you wear a cap or a hat; an everything pack with an irresistible price.

Conclusion: The first Signature skins aren’t totally as good as some of the best skins in SL, but at this price, these skins are really worth a look, as they offer good features, especially on the face (but who needs more frankly ;-) ) The Asian, blonde and black skins are a great tribute to diversity. Those wanting to look sexy without spending 2000 Lindens on a skin everyone is wearing definitely have to consider them!

  1. oooh I could kiss you (but I won’t XD!) I can’t wait to send my guys friends in to get these, no offence but it’s a bit unsettling to see everyone and his brother wearing the same skin (Abyss). Lovely as they are, I prefer some diversity which I think these skins you just posted will provide!
