OMG! There is so much we could tell you without breaking the rules...

In SL there is a huge fashion industry. Skins are a big part of it. Currently there is fund raising event going on and a number of the BEST skin makers are selling products at discount for a good cause. Visit One Voice for some great deals and excellent skins. There are numerous skin makers participating.

There is no way I can be fair to the skin makers and list them, there are just too many good ones. Thus I suppose in some part the rules to not advertise. BUT, there is an entire blogosphere reviewing skins and showing images of them. Visit Google and search for skins.

Open search while in world or on the Market Place and search on skins. You can add ethnic terms to the search if you are looking for exotic races. Asian and Afro skins are harder to find but there is a good number of people making them. So, don't give up.

If you mean exotic in terms of fae, demon, furry, and other mythical creatures... those are available too. Just adjust your search terms.

You may have some challenges with SL Search. I'm not a fan of it. But, it is the only in-world search we have. For the market place you can use Google and get way better results. Type your search query as: site:marketplace.secondlife.com/ Asian skins or replace 'Asian skins' part with whatever your interest is. The SPACE before 'Asian' is important.

There are big name brands in the SL skin business. Most are big because they make great skins. But, some small start ups make really good skins too.

Pricing can run from free to 2 or 3 thousand Lindens. With the new layers we can do more with makeup. So, skins with a nude version are way more useful.

In SL we have a counter fit product knock-offs problem. There is no easy way to check out skin makers or other other creative artists. So, while shopping and reading the reviews in the Market Place and remember we have lots of liars and gamesmanship going on. Ask around in world. Read the fashion blogs. Do what you can to avoid buying a counterfeit or 'copybot' skin because the Lab may remove them from the grid. If they do there is no way to get your L$ back.
