WANTED: Mesh Clothing Creator

Recommended Posts

There must be a ton of templates from which they could be textured to produce something like that.

Templates which will cost you around L$250 instead of the multi-tens of thousand L$ that someone custom creating that as a full perm item *should* be asking for.

Unfortunately the templates I have found are very few and far between and they all cost 600L and up. Meli Imako has substancially raised her prices, so the 250L templates you were probably refering to, now cost 699. Thanks so much though!

Even at the current prices, those are ridiculously cheap for a fufll perm template.  If that price is too much, the L$60,000 for a full perm custom unique might be a shade too far.  Yes you might get someone cheaper but understand that Meli's price is based on volume not a one off.  It might help if you state whether the use is to be exclusive to you as that's a huge difference.

Basically I am with Sassy on that. And 60k sounds ridic for me and yes I agree I had such offers or even more before too. Though with the level of details on the top plus its a pregnant dress needs some details to keep your eye on. Pretty sure you will find somebody who does that for much less than 60k :)

it would really help if you gave people what you consider a "fair" price for making this dress for you.  Or gave details... like do you want exclusive rights? do you want the IP for the item?

Indeed, details are good. Also, I'm quite surprised that anyone would pay to have custom work done by someone else, so that they can then sell it in their own store, or that any designer would go for that? is this a normal thing in sl, to buy a store specifically to sell things you didn't make? Not a criticism, just haven't come across this before so genuinely curious. I'm not even sure how much money I would ask for on full perm and ip, I suppose it boils down to how much I think I could have made on it myself.

@TomH78:  I guess there's a distinction between designer and creator.  If someone is a designer as in draws concepts but doesn't have the skills to bring it to product, I see no issue with that designer/creator relationship.  It's no different from complex products where someone needs to be animator, sound artist, texture artist, scripter etc. all in one.  It's often more sensible to get some of that outsourced. 

However, picking a product from a RL catalogue and having that made by someone else to re-sell is ... wait!  That's pretty much what Jonty Glaser did with Stiletto Moody Shoes and they were all outsourced for creation by underpaid workers (who allegedly didn't get paid towards the end).

Then there's the issue of IP rights http://newlegalreview.cpaglobal.com/legal-tensions-escalate-rights-virtual-goods/

Either way, to discard say L$60,000 as "too much, no need to pay that", that's where the difference in standards of living cross over from SL to RL.  There are creators who have very real bills to pay, competing with others who sustain themselves on a few handfuls of rice where the pay is measured in single $'s per day or week.
