Catsuit

02-04-2013

While I'm busy preparing new sets for Lola Mesh support, I'm also looking at the catsuits... Over the years the classic catsuit has not changed much, however... The tattoo layer came along, Hugo's design expanded it's color range and now the impants slowly start to look (more... somewhat big, but more) realistic. Apart from that, my photoshop skills have improved too...

Some of the catsuits for sale now still lack tattoo layers, and so it's time for an overhaul. I'll update the sets asap. (Which means they'll certainly be ready by this time next year hehe). Here's two examples for the shine on the suits (the classic one in the first pic and the 'hard shine' version the second). There is a third one which I'm still testing. A pic of that one will be here soon!

Catsuit 2 - classic Catsuit 2 - classic
Catsuit 1 - hard shine Catsuit 1 - hard shine

And an update: here is catsuit version 3. It's an updated version of the classic catsuit. I think it's my favorite one...

A new special and transparency

12-03-2013

While it's still work in progress, here's an early preview of the new specials I'll have in-store ASAP. I'm still working on the finer details but this project is called 'Good Cop, Bad Cop', and you can see why...

I've had some requests along the way for uniforms and, as I don't have enough time to do custom work (sorry!), I've always been forced to decline these requests. That's not to say that I won't give a spin to a special set or a uniform once in a while, though! What's actually the good or the bad cop is for you to decide once both outfits are ready.

On a side note: I do have to say that I love the full perm mesh designers who produce such wonderful ideas. The hat featured in the photo, for instance, comes from 'N&T designs' by Natasa Rozensztock. I really can go wild texturing it!

Good cop or bad cop? Good cop or bad cop?

While working with the Lola's Tango Mesh implants which recently went on sale, I came across a problem. It appeared while wearing hair that partially falls over the chest (and thereby over the Lola Tango implants) when the hair texture 'overrides' the applier texture and results in the applier texture not being shown where the textures meet. This isn't helped by the fact that the hair texture in that area is transparent, too, and creates a 'gap', and it makes no difference which applier clothing layer (top or bra layer) is used or which texture has the most transparent parts - it will be 'lost' and thus not shown.

This problem will cause one applier to work while another won't. This is not due to 'faulty' hair or anthing to do with the implant texture: it's a because of the SL rendering engine and possibly may have to do with using .png files, but there's no way I'll revert to using the extremely elaborate .tga format, so... So stay tuned for a whole host of new designs featuring Lola's Tango appliers and other updates from Hugo's Design!  

Mesh: the dress

09-03-2013

Now mesh has been fully adopted in Second Life it's fun to see what can be created with them. I'm going to be honest and let you all know that I don't feel like- and / or have the time to figure out how to build mesh. In stead I'll use full perm mesh items that are for sale in SL. Like this dress!

I've ALWAYS wanted to make a tight skirt, and the skirt provided by SL was no good... There are some issues with the alpha layer, but I guess that is just the way it is and I can live with that. Wearing a mesh object also requires standard sizing, something which I'll explain next week. Here's a first try-out on the dress (including the Lola Lango mesh Implants I mentioned in my last post ... yeah, I'm a fan).

New Stuffs

07-03-2013

Hi all,

As you could see in our previous post, we recently started to support Lola Tango Mesh Implants. Because basically... they look awesome. Last monday the New Yali Garter set hit the store and next weekend we'll release new stuff. We're working on appliers for older sets and new sets. If there's a set you think we MUST make appliers for, let us know!
