Soooo . . . Salty's dress in this pic? Where is it from???

(Not that I'd ever have the nerve to wear something that tight in public, of course, being an enormously modest and self-effacing woman . . . My interest is purely academic. Yes, that's it: academic. *coughs again*)

Hey Presto, and you're not the first to bag one of these........two others (no names) have also done so. I have this dress and I love it.....and it has a massive colour hud........

*sigh*

For Maitreya only . . .

In fairness, it's actually pretty rare that something I want isn't available for Slink.

Damn, though.

You mean, buying a Maitreya body? (And new appliers, and, and?)

Yeah. And my understanding is that Lara is pretty comparable to Slink Physique, which is what I have now.  But I think it's probably more time, effort, and money than is really justified by the chance to wear a pretty small selection of things not currently available for Slink.

And . . . I do actually have a couple of items that I wear that were made for Maitreya. Fitting them on to Slink requires a bit of fudging -- and it wouldn't work with something as form-fitting as this dress -- but occasionally, I can cheat . . .

Found some nice short hair, first felt awkward, now I get used already.

That hair is something that might suit me. Would you mind revealing where it comes from?

I'm going to guess Dura, maybe? They certainly have a large selection of nice short styles that are like this.

My current hair is Dura 23, from their "Boy&Girls" collection. It's made from 255 sculpties (the max in a linkset) and has an ARC near 100K, as I recall.

I haven't visited their store in years, and it'll be the first place I stop if I ever decide to update my look. I have a lot of androgynous clothing I got in one fell swoop when Phoenix Rising went out of business many years ago. I don't look forward to finding that same look in mesh, and that's a major holdup in converting. I hate shopping in SL as much as I hate it in RL, unless I'm at Home Depot (which is the edit window in SL).

Indeed. When I converted to mesh (and hair was one of the first things I changed over), I spent a great deal of time trying to find mesh versions of my favourite flexi or sculptie hair. The search did not go well.

Eventually, I gave up, and just started buying whatever looked good. I'm a much happier hair shopper (and wearer) now.

(I tend to like shorter hair: Dura should be a go-to for me. For some reason, however, I've had problems finding things I really like there. Go figure.)

I've been getting back to a bit of building in SL recently. Just prims, nothing fancy, or big. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it!

I have it in black and I love it but am pretty sure I was asked to leave Franks because it was too revealing.

I've seen a lot of suits that I would have gotten for you in a heartbeat if you were mesh and if you didn't set me on fire. =~.^= or maybe if you did...

Yep it's banned from Franks. Quite the controversy when that dress was released.

Thank you for the thought, Clover. I'd also need to be in-world enough to justify making changes. If I ever get started, I'll ring you up.

Seriously? Yeesh.

Well, there's another item to add to my already voluminous list of reasons not to give [unnamed club] my patronage.
