Hand and Feet Problems in Shape Demos

I'm having problems with my shape demos where the hands and feet are way too big and the body is super thin (not how it looks on the demo pictures).I've tried three different shape, and same thing happens to all of them. Is there any way to correct this w/o having to buy the shape, since the point of getting the demo is to try b/f you buy.

Shape demos have large hands and feet so you wont just buy the demos and use it as your shape. The skinny part, that should be how the actual shape will look. Shapes will look different with different skins and also some photos are enhanced.

Oh thanks for clearing that up, although it is a little distracting and I can't really tell what the shape looks like.

I know... :smileysad: but I guess it would be too easy to just buy demos shapes if they didn't do that, you know? Try to get a pose that makes you stand with your hands behind your back maybe, that way it wont be such a huge distraction. For the feet, maybe some shoes with alpha layers? Just thinking out loud now.

Sometimes shape makers use two demos. One for the head and one for the body. The one for the head will have an ugly body. The one for the body will have an ugly (usually huge) head. That is because people actually started using the demo shapes with the huge hands and feet. Either they did not notice or did not mind. Which is pretty funny because as you have seen the hands and feet on most demo shapes are enormous.

That could be why the body looks so thin in your demo.

This is a big factor. Ideally you want a quality skin and a quality shape. Quality skins are actually fairly easy to find, shapes are much more difficult simply because the tools seem explicitely designed to discourage anyone from ever making a good shape in SL.

Hi. If demo shapes had normal hands / feet and no other indication that they are demo's why someone after to buy the original product?

I moaned because i had no shoes until i met a girl who had no feet...
