Licorice Soft Whip

On Your Toes Blog: Licorice Soft Whip

I have been trying to work with the new 'materials' feature for mesh in SL, unfortunately I am still working out the kinks and trying to 'make nice' with the official viewer. Properly lighting my photos using the new feature is challenging. I love the idea of having this as an option, I do still wish that the content creators who have quickly jumped onto the bandwagon of this new feature, would offer their items in a non-materials version too. When using my preferred viewer and light setting without a non-materials option the accessories look flat and dark, so while they are really wonderful items, I sadly will have to largely forgo wearing them for now.

I wanted to feature these accessories by Maxi Gossamer, as they appear using the materials feature in the main SL viewer, they are great and the texture certainly comes to life a bit more with this option. I am also enamored by the light ruffled wrap style dress by ISON, and the equally soft and romantic hair by D!va. The shoes, the latest from the exceptional Gos Boutique are another must have item, by my calculation, I love the options to select different fabrications for various parts of the shoe, which makes getting the full color set even more irresistible (shown here in a combination of black and silver.)

This look is comprised of items mostly found at the current round of Collabor88. This round is, in my humble opinion, one of the best and most cohesive in recent memory. It is easy to pull together effortless summer looks from the numerous pretty dresses and separates, exceptional add-on shoes (for Slink feet), and accessories on hand, not to leave out the wonders of d├ęcor and prefab builds you will find there.
