Nouveau chez / New release at: “Casa del Shai” by Shai Delacroix

• New suits at Casa del Shai! “Southern Comfort” comes in Cream, Brown and Charcoal, and a special Purple and Brown Relay For Life version, available during this week-end only, so hurry up and get it! All proceeds of this RFL Suit release will go the American Cancer Society.

The suits include sculpted cuffs for legs and sleeves. I do love the sleeve cuffs, I’m not impressed by the leg ones, so I choose to show you the suits without those. They look great that way after a slight modification of the pants. :-)

The jacket is entirely designed on the jacket layer, so you won’t fight with your sliders to fit a lower part on the skirt layer, YAY!

Pants are “Modify” which is, as you know, very important to me! ;-) Unfortunately, the shirt isn’t. It’s impossible to adjust the “sleeve looseness,” which is very useful to avoid the ugly “tight sleeves” look of the jacket you could wear over the shirt. The sculpty cuffs are here for that, but you definitely can’t wear this shirt with another jacket.

The bowtie is an attachment, so you can have a more casual look without wearing it. You can wear the “Southern Comfort” without jacket, with the choice of a tucked and an untucked, more casual looking, shirt (shirt layer and underpants complement for the first, jacket layer for the second).

Today I show you the Cream version, my favorite, and a quick view of the brown one and the must have “Relay for Life” special edition at the end of this post.

<> 800 Lindens for each color, including a tucked and untucked version of the shirt, along with a complement on the underpants layer.
The special RFL version comes with a matching fedora (not shown); you can get it for a 1000 Lindens donation.

• Introducing today the eyes range from Zada Zenovka, called Fidelity Eyes, which I recently discovered.

They are very detailed hand drawn eyes, and the designer has tried to make them as lifelike as possible, with certain success!

The eyes come in two sizes, which are called RealEyes and IdealEyes. Real eyes are my favorite; they are slightly smaller than the Ideal ones which have kind of an “anime” size. Be aware, though, that “RealEyes” are not as small as the “natural” from PixelDolls or the normal size at Miriel’s, talking about models I used many times on Slmen.

Each time you pick an eye from Zada, you get three pairs which are designed to match the ambient lighting. Indoors, the highlights resemble window lighting; the pupils are larger. Outdoors, the pupils are smaller with bright sunlight hinting, and an overall skyline sheen. Neutral have a generic highlighting. I do love this sense of detail! :-)

I will try to include some close-ups in my composites during the next few days, to show you these eyes properly.

<> You can get each color (from 20) for 100 Lindens (Introductory price, normal price will be 120 Lindens); or a pack of 5 (15 pairs) for 360 Lindens (Introductory price, soon you will have to pay 400 Lindens).

• New hair at Adam n’ Eve, by Domen Gorilla.

“Chico” comes in 20 colors, sold in packs of two nearby tones. 250 Lindens for a pack.

Body Positive: BodyWise, Adam N Eve, Aitui and The Good Life

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes), - Tenue/Outfit | Saturday, July 28th, 2007

I show you today a designer’s shape and 3 skins. I chose the ones which offered the best fit for the face contour, then the best fit for the body.

This shape offers an attractive face and seems to easily fit a wide range of skins, which is a real plus. Its price is totally fair and, if you like the face, go for it! You can modify the body to suit your needs anytime.

The shape is shown “As is.” I just modified the foot size, which was set to 24 but made the feet look really short for such a tall avie (7’00”). This shape will please those who want a tall and powerful body. And because it’s “modify,” you will be able to correct its flaws yourself, at times. :-) Remember this: NEVER BUY A NO-MODIFY SHAPE!

For example, you can see on the torso picture (second composite) how the “package” set to 65 spoils the belly line. Please gentlemen, use your eyes instead of your male ego! Set the package under 40. You will have a nicer belly and no less manliness, I assure you!

For further information about the choice criteria, please read this Introduction.

Body Positive: Body Politik, FORM and Naughty

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

First post of the series, with a shape from Body Politik and 3 skins from more than a dozen I tried with this shape. I chose the ones which offered the best fit for the face contour, then the best fit for the body.

The shape is shown “As is.” I just modified the foot size, which was conveniently set to 10 for a good shoe fitting, but was not good looking barefoot.

“Paul” is a high end shape, with good proportions, and you will appreciate it for sure if you like to be tall (6’10”) and muscular but not huge! :-) As usual, if you love the face, take it. Bodies are easier to modify. Fortunately, like all the good shapes I will show you here, it is fully modifiable.

I purposely chose skins with no or little facial hair, for a better detailed face view.

For further information about the choice criteria, please read this Introduction.
