Tried "rebaking". Tried other suggestions posted here: http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_bake_fail Tried previous suggestion of wearing alpha mask or demo skin. None of this worked or none of this is the case. I've relogged about four times, once waiting almost twenty minutes. I've reverted back to my previous skin and rebaked, reloaded, and nothing is working.

Check to see that you have up to date graphic drivers. If using a laptop, go to the laptop manufacturers website to do this no the graphic card companies site.
You could also have a corrupt viewer. If so you will need to do a clean reinstall. If you are using a tpv the directions for doing this will be in their wiki. .

It may be the bug referenced in this Jira https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-12906
Although initiated in 2009, there are a number of 2011/12 comments too. Originally believed to be a Nvidia graphics card bug, seems it affects ATI as well. Reading this reminds me so much of the pink torso bug.
Suggested workarounds seem to be disabling Basic Shaders, disabling OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects in Preferences > Graphics > Hardware and updating your graphics card driver. Try these and see if any work for you. The Jira says Fix pending but I really don't know how long that has been there or if this is a forgotten Jira as no Linden comments since June 2010.
Are you using an up-to-date viewer by the way and can you please post your computer specifications from Login screen > Help > About Second Life.
If you have a desktop with AMD (ATI) or Nvidia graphics card, use these links to update the driver:
Input the details of your card or use Nvidia's auto detect utility if a Nvidia card.
AMD/ATI's auto detect utility is available here http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx
In its Help page http://www.nvidia.com/object/drivers_faq.html Nvidia recommends installing the new driver over the old one but to avoid issues, most people recommend you do uninstall first. You do have to uninstall AMD drivers before installing the new one. However, it's very simple and AMD provide helpful videos on that link.
If you have an Intel integrated chipset, use Intel's driver detect utility at http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect?redirector_count=1&
If you have a notebook, you may need to download an updated driver from the notebook manufacturer's website, depending on the card. For AMD Mobility cards in laptops, refer to the links on this page http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-28041SupportforATIMobility.aspx
AMD does supply generic Mobility drivers for laptops with some restrictions and warnings. Refer http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Page
For Nvidia cards in notebooks, Nvidia provide drivers from this link http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_drivers.html
