New Update for Envision skin (The Body Politik) + 50% off Sale!

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Saturday, December 29th, 2007

Introducing today the updated version of Envision Skin for men, by Maximillion Grant for The Body Politik! And at the same time, I’m pleased to announce that The Body Politik is having a huge 50% off sale on every skin (including the updated ones), shapes and skin-shape packs from saturday 29th until the 31st of december at noon SL time! This is a very interesting way to get the new Envision I’m presenting in depth today.

Faithful to slmen policy about comments, I will stay as factual as I can and let you take a look at the many pictures I did.

First, general pictures in two skin tones, then after the jump, you will see all the skin tones offered, then the 12 different facial hair options added to the clean shaven one, and at the end you will have a look at the brand new makeup versions, in three options. They are modeled with 3 different designer’s shapes, to show you their versatility. (so no, it’s not me on the pictures :-D )

• Shape: Lemon E4:38 (800 Lindens, Perms: M/C/NT),
@ Lemon [Designer, Address & SLURL]
• Skin: Envision Caramel Clean Shaven (1750 Lindens, Perms: M/C/NT),
@ The Body Politik [Designer, Address & SLURL]

Note that the pricing scheme remains the same: you can have a skin in one skin tone and one facial option for 1750 Lindens, a pack of 4 diffrent facial hair option in the same skin tone, including the “clean shaven” one, for 3500 Lindens. 4 Packs are provided. You can choose the complete pack of all 13 facial hair options in one skin tone for 5000 Lindens. Each skin comes in two versions, hair and bald. In the following pictures, you will see the “hair version.” As a complement item, you will also get a color matching texture for your Xcite genitals if you have them.

So, what is new in this update?

Maximillion redid the eyebrows and the hair almost completely. The hair is now incredibly realistic, and can easily be worn without any prim hair.

The ears are retouched, and the result is worth it.

Most importantly, the upper eyelid is now lightened. That makes Envision now able to fit many more shapes. The main problem of the previous version IMHO was these dark eyelids which didn’t look good with many face shapes. This is now fixed!

There were little problems with light spots next to the eyes; these are fixed too. Last but not least, the skin suffered from dark patches, depending on lighting conditions, which have been fixed as well, so the skin looks more natural in more situations.

But wait, there’s more! Maximillion Grant went through the whole skin, top to bottom, and did a lot of work smoothing out any graininess while trying to keep all the details. As a result, the entire skin has much better definition.

A few words about the makeup options. They come for each skin tone in every facial hair option! Makeup 1 is an eyeliner, makeup 2 is the same eyeliner with some black eyeshadow, makeup 3 looks to me like the number two version, but tear-stained. Interesting options which stay masculine looking. I know that Maximillion has been working a lot on them!

Envision is now an achieved skin. It was already a good alternative, but its flaws and especially the lack of versatility according to facial shapes prevented it from being in the top category. Now it’s part of the top range and it’s good for the competition between skin creators!

What I like: the huge variety of facial hair options, and now the makeup options, which come in every facial hair and skin tone; the gentle face you get with that skin; the hair; the slim and toned appearance it gives, without overdeveloped abs or pecs.

What I wish: a blonde version. A real black skin tone and maybe a natural tone lighter than “titanium” (maybe with a blonde or reddish version? :-) )

Remember that the 50% sale will make these skins particularly more attractive until the 31st of december 2007 noon SL time!

Body Positive: Lemon, RaC, The Good Life and Body Politik

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

A shape and 3 skins. You know the challenge now! I chose the skins which offered the best fit for the face contour, then the best fit for the body, and I tried to avoid the ones you can see everywhere :)

The shape is shown “As is.” Aemilia Case of Lemon did it. Aemilia and her business partner Haver Cole design the most interesting shapes in SL in my humble opinion. They bring diversity to SL! Black shapes, shorter shapes, chubby shapes, and even old and fat shapes.

Aemilia and Haver know how to make an avatar interesting and genuine without being necessarily “pretty.” Because they are customer conscious, they make their shapes “modify,” so you can make your avie evolve if you want to. :-)

This -7:23- shape will please those who want to be pretty tall without being a giant (6’6”), with a thin body. Notice how different skins can give a totally different appearance to the same shape!

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