Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: “Dahlinks”, “JCS”, “Little Heaven”, “Shiki”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Official, Semi-Casual | Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Are you (like me) somewhat tired of “realistic” items, and looking for more genuine creativity? There are some designers to fit your needs, and Shinichi Mathy for Shiki designs is one of them. He offers colored items for guys that make you feel happy!

I’m showing today “Mustard suit.” It comes in two versions (open and closed) for jackets, two versions for pants (brown and black belt) and 3 undershirt colors (Olive -shown- plus Teal and Grey), available in the three layers possible for top items, plus an underpants complement. As the shirt has half sleeves, you can’t use the short layer to give solme volume to the jacket over it, so I chose the undershirt layer and completed it with my personal sleeve filler.
Everything is moddable and copiable. You can have this suit for 450 Lindens!

With the last unisex hair from Little Heaven (Salva), the Eternity Dress Ring from Dahlinks in black diamond and titanium, and Grey Carl Perkins shoes from JCS, I had a lot of fun trying to mimic some well known RL designer ;-) This “face 3 eyeliner” version of the Joshua skin by Damiani helped me a lot!

  2. My eternal question - why will people pay 1800L for a skin and hate to pay more than 250L for a piece of jewelry?

    Skin artists are artists and granted it is difficult to get all the body part skin lines to match up. And I do applaud their creations and the beauty of them.
    But we jewelry designers are also artists and those tiny prims do not line up all by themselves….. We also have to conceive new and interesting styles, and draw textures. Not to mention trying to make styles fit well for most avatars *sigh* It just seems the public is adverse to paying for our hard work as they will pay for skins.

    Anyway, back to drawing and building my inexpensive artistic creations, I call jewelry. =D
