First mesh release


Finally it is there! Hugo's Design first mesh creation. We've worked hard to make it a special one and we think we've succeeded in doing just that.

The first mesh products in store will be the Eos products. They will be sold as separate packages and they will all be packed with the same hud. First product will be the Eos body set and in the upcoming weeks the Eos corset will follow and more after that. The bodyset will include:

  • the Eos body
  • short gloves
  • long stockings
  • the Hugo's Design Style hud

That styling hud is a very... very special. We've seen nothing like it... It will allow you to set color of all parts of the set, metals and set the materials.

materials can be turned on and off, you can set custom colors and even pick from 20 predefined textured colors. If there are parts on the set that can be hidden (like the corset-top), you will be able to do that. Dressing up will be as much fun as wearing it and showing off.

Mesh is coming to Hugo's Design


It's been a while... All this time I have been silent, working on textured creations for release in the store. While there wasn't much besides our new releases, we did have a really cool update: the UniOmega applier, one applier to configure and wear the set the way you want(!) This applier was built by Ilana Debevec for Hugo's Design. Not that much new designs have been released lately. As I was very busy in my normal working life I had no more time available for more designs. 

Right now I have more time on my hands and so I started to look at mesh. There's still a whole lot to learn, but it's fun and soon you'll see new mesh designs from HD in the store! Keep your eyes and ears open for what is coming soon! 

Appliers and Mesh...


It has taken me a while to get back to my keyboard in order to write something here. It's been busy, not only in Second Life, even more so in daily life.

As I've written before, Second Life is changing rapidly since mesh is added to the mix. People are making the most beautiful clothing items and little ol' me has yet to adapt to making mesh items! Doing so has me facing some problems...

  • A rather large protion of the ppl who shop in my store is using mesh bodyparts or a total mesh body. These don't play well with mesh clothing...
  • Sheer mesh stuff doesn't work with alpha layers  
  • The 'exposing' nature of my designs in combination with latex mostly being body tight clothing... (I have been tweaking aplha layers and I have been weightpainting mesh items but I just don't succeed in creating something skin tight that looks good when the avatar moves...)

Most of these 'problems' (but not all!) can be conquered by editting and tweaking (for weeks) the set, however I don't have weeks of time to invest in a single set.... None the less I'll keep on working on mesh stuff in order to get some (basic) items out there... 

As for the mesh bodyparts and full bodies that are currently popping up left and right... I have spoken to other designers who support up to 9 different mesh body (part) brands and make separate appliers for each of them. Seeing as my sets sometimes have up to 12 different items in them I would in that case have  to create 9 (brands) x 9 (colors) x 12 (items) = 972 appliers. I'm not going to do that :) 

To cover this I recently started supporting the Omega system. Omega has created a couple of scripts one can add to their body (part(s)). When a designer makes an applier for the Omega system, he or she immediately supports all mesh body part(s) currently supported by Omega! *yay* One of the mesh bodies I really like is the one from TheMeshProject. Unfortunately... they don't support Omega (yet) so my stuff doesn't work on TMP bodies :( On the bright side... Belleza's body is supported now!

Alright... now on to updating the product page, more from me here soon!

Lola's, Azz and Booty


In the last days we've been busy... There's a lot of stuff that's on the horizon and here are the first updates! We're receiving more and more requests for Lola Tango updates and also Phat / Cute Azz is gaining popularity at a fast pace! That is why here's a first update... We've created Lola appliers and Phat Azz appliers for the Yali body set and the Yali set 1. For Expo 2013 there finally is a Phat Azz applier! 

Other good news is that from now on, Ghetto booty is supported too.  All three above named sets have an applier which is compatible with azz and booty :) 

So... what else is on the horizon? Well, a lot! First to appear next weekend is the last Yali set. Aside from that, we're creating new azz-appliers for our specials 'good / bad cop' - 'Elle generale' and even 'KittyCat'. That last one will also finally have Lola support! That is not all. We're working on a new special and the old Expo's will have azz-support soon too.

Slink Appliers


Hey all... it's been a while, and that's all because of a really busy schedule... None the less there was a new set released last week: Ayan. Appliers for Lola's and Phat azz are available too! 

SLink logoToday or.. this weekend we'll release basic Slink appliers! This update is for solid colored stockings and gloves both in a 5 style hud. We're planning on appliers for sheer gloves and stockings as well in the near future.

Mesh stuff? Still working on that one... We really hope to get our first mesh items out as soon as possible!
