Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day: “Aitui”, “Boon”, “Civvies”, “JHZ”, “Style Starts Here”…

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Dressy, Night, Semi-Casual | Friday, October 17th, 2008

Two months ago, I showed you some items of the new “Aitui” collection in a summer outfit, telling you how versatile it is, and especially the “Tokyo Intake” jacket and shirt combo. I’m showing today another look with this jacket, more a fall look this time. I chose “Baggy Jeans” from Civvies to go along with it, and the “Stomper Engineer Boots” from “Style Starts Here.”

Each piece of this outfit shows the same level of quality and attention to detail. Textures are very well done, showing a “realistic” look without being simply “photorealistic” in the most boring way. What I mean is, even though the designers could have simply used photosources, they weren’t satisfied with their work without adding a lot of their own creativity and vision to it. The result is a look that isn’t cartoonish at all, but doesn’t give you the impression you just have RL photographs applied to your avatar. In the end, a very cool look, full of SL spirit, with creativity and craftmanship in every component, thanks to Lissa Maertens, Posy Trudeau and Jesseaitui Petion!

I added nice gloves by Armin Wiefel for “Drawmachine,” with prim attachments for a better look, a modern and casual Watch and Bracelet by HugoZion Kondor for “JHZ,” a very cool haircut by Bo Nakamura for “Boon” and “Neo” by Kaoz Koba for “Damiani,” in tan with beard for today.

Enjoy!

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: “Civvies”, “Hazard”, “Negko Design”, “Tracks”…

Posy Trudeau, the designer behind Civvies just released two pairs of drawn jeans. I’m showing today the “Hellbound” one. I know you have probably enough pairs of jeans in your inventory, but these are different and might catch your interest! First, they come in two versions, to wear with or without a provided prim belt. Second, this belt is moddable, comes in two pre-sized versions, and last but not least, has a shape that, actually, fits avatars’ shapes, which is so so rare! Third, they are nicely textured, with attention to details, but without that now terribly dull (IMHO) “photorealistic” flair. But wait, there is more! Two pairs of cuffs are provided (two sizes), moddable, and those are sculpted in a very clever way which fits shoes without passing thru them. This kind of cuff could make me appreciate prim cuff attachments for pants, although I’m usually not fond of them. Note that one of the cuffs show drawings on it, which helps to integrate it with the rest of the pants (and must have been a hell of a lot of work to do, as everyone who has sweat at texturing sculpties knows).

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers for each item, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 3.5/5 - Price: 4/5 - Value for money: 4.5/5

Also showing: boots and choker from “Body And Soul Tracks,” at very sweet prices, a tattoo set from “Negko Design” (which is now in a new location, see the address on the address page). See details of the tattoo below. Plus another nicely drawn tee shirt from “Hazard” (comes on jacket, shirt and underpants layers), and a hair/hat combo from “Exile.” Enjoy!
