Okay so today I have a REALLY long post to make. I have a ton of stuff to write about so it’s all going to be in one post. First off, I’ve been wanting to do more clothing since I haven’t in so long so I’ve been pretty much pumping new things out like a factory the past few days. xD
I’ve got some new jeans, shorts, tank tops and hair, and I’m currently working on some bikinis. Getting ready for summer FTW 😀 Also some new skins from a friend and talented new skin developer 🙂
First off are the jeans. They’re called Widow Jeans because the design on the back is a tad unique like spider webs always are, and they have my little black widow logo on the back pockets. They’re available on the Republic shape, Booty Bottom, and my Calypso shape.
They’re available in five washes as well. I had randomly thought about making jeans for a week or two since the last jeans I made were back when I first started developing, Lol. These are entirely hand-drawn too 😀 I’m really proud of how they came out, especially considering my last attempt at jeans looked so crappy I quit them midway through.
After I did the long jeans, I decided that I wanted to do shorts too. I didn’t do hotpants or daisy dukes but I did almost like a bermuda short. Not quite as long as bermudas I don’t think, but they’re close. They’re a good balance between the two so I just called them Surf Shorts. 🙂
These are also available on the same three meshes that the Widow Jeans are available on. I’ve eliminated the acid wash from this collection though because I just simply couldn’t get the technique to work as well on these. =/ I have no idea why, since they’re the exact same thing but slightly modified. The only things changed are the design in the back, added rips and cut into shorts. I guess it’s one of those things you “can only do once,” LOL. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t duplicate what I did to get that acid washed look. =[ But anyway, I also modified the other available washes. I made them a little more blueish since the Widow Jeans were more on the green side.
Third, I wanted to do some cute beachy tops to go with these shorts and jeans. I actually based them (almost directly) on a top that I have in real life, the only difference being the style of the lace in the back. Also 100% hand-drawn 😀 This is the first time EVER that something I made actually came out 100% EXACTLY like how I pictured in my head before I started. I’m really happy with them and I hope to make some bikinis to match 😀
I couldn’t think of anything clever to name them so I just went with “Stripey Tees,” Lol. Ah well, it’ll work.
Fourth is a debut of sorts, of my newest hair textures. Since previously I only had my Scarling Pink color and a blondeish tone in it, this is the first full line of hairs in all of the natural (and one unnatural) colors.
I did do a line of the Valje hairstyles before this (between the jeans and shorts I believe) in all of the tones except Cherry. The version of Mohogany is slightly different though. A “rough draft” if you will. I would post those too, along with a new color of my Translucent eye series(a bright blue called Selene, my rendition of the blue eyes on the vampires in the Underworld series) but this post is already long enough so maybe I will do those another time if I feel like it. Anyway, I’m really loving this Cherry color that I did. I’ve actually had it sitting in my hair textures folder for a while now and I just never used it. I always start my textures in red because it’s a very easy color to manipulate and make other colors from. This was very first color of my new hair textures.
Last but certainly NOT least are some new skins by a friend and fellow skin designer, Muneca. She really has come a long way as a designer and I really love these new skins of hers. They look like a lot of time and effort was put into them, working out every little detail. The tone itself is extremely similar to my Natural tone so if you like my skins I’m sure you’ll love hers too. The noses are absolutely adorable and the lips are oh so glossy!
As you might notice, yes her skins are very similar to my own. This is partly because she used my Skin Guide psd file (available on FSF for 10k. It is NOT any of my skin textures, it is just a placement guide). I just wanted to point that out so no one thinks otherwise, because in the past a few people actually thought that she was an alt of mine because of the similarities. She puts a great deal of time and effort into her work and it certainly shows. I really love the softness and subtle but detailed enhancements. I love that she knows just the right amount of shine and shade to add to the body in each area and it looks just wonderful 😀 I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for more skins by her! ❤
