  1. I realy don't have a set style. When I first started in SL 13 ish years ago my wardrobe was heavy on the rockabilly/retro goth/punk look and mainly shopped at Ivalde, Sn@Tch, Artilleri, Thimble , Deviant Kitties , Silent Sparrow, schadenfraude, Black Maria, Exile with Seven's Wings being my main accessory. Although there was variation in that it was pretty much it. And then I've had alts Iv'e dressed differently. I also used to rip apart oufits when it was system layers and add on parts- take a top from one thing, take the skirt from a dress and create something new. With fitted mesht he way we have now it's not possible. Currently there is no set style, I don't really do more formal looks (not even formal but things like business wear type stuff) and range anywhere from futuristic or fantasy looks to kawaii, punk or casual. I don't wear a lot of accessories and want to change that and add more in. And I tend toward fantasy skins (mostly Lumae & now Ritual) and mix those with different things. I also have kemono, furry , Tiny, and Dinkie avatars although I don't break them out as much and they tend to be the same kind of way I dress. I don't have a clothing or hair store I am devoted to like I was with Sn@Tch (seriously I owned about 80% of her inventory at one time) but I primarily wear Lumae and Ritual skins. And I change my appearance a lot, not just my clothes but I have done full change of hair/skin/make up/clothes etc and so on multiple times a day...or I'll wear the same thing like 4 days in a row so it depends. And sometims I like to look more androgynous
  2. It was in the featured destinations so I assumed it was open. It finally worked and I walked around some and I'll have to check later . I didn't mean to wander in when it wasn't open to the public.n
  3. I am really excited about this but I keep getting a message that I am not allowed to teleport into the regions. I've tired various thigns and various fixes and I'm not reinstalling Firestorm in hopes that this helps but it seems other people are having the same problem.
  4. You look great! I was playing around with the new body as well and the BOM add ons help reduce the painted on look for clothes so that will help with appliers.
  5. If you are using appliers for LAQ then there are several slots available for eyeshadow on the LAQ hud. I think there are 4 (I am going off memory). To wear more than one applier you click the number check box you want the applier to go and then apply it. So you can out eyeshadow on 1 and then click 2 and put eyeliner. However layering appliers like this can cause flickering this is a problem with doing any kind of applier layers. If you are using BOM you just add the layers from your inventory. But you may need to play around with the order you add them so one layer doesn't hide the other.
  6. I can't figure out of materials is working like it's supposed to or not. I keep trying different appliers but I don't see anything at all (where as before I would see things but only white) so I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
  7. I don't really dress like this in SL so I don't want to invest my SL resources into a blog. Otherwise it would be a blog or me wearing demo clothes or skins. If people are looking for a more mature skin LAQ is a good place. They have the mesh head that is specifically made to be older....like 60s. But there are some of their older system skins that would work for those who don't do mesh or want to try the skins as BOM with their own mesh head. One that is the same age range and another that looks 40s or 50s. Izzie's has a skin more suited for elderly, I would peg it as 70s or 80s. It is pre mesh body but also comes with a shape. Izzie's also has appliers for several heads for wrinkles and to make eyebrows grey etc so that someone can vary how old their avatar looks. Sb@tch is known for club and goth wear but there are some pieces there that have long skirts or is more covered you have to hunt around. At Fameshed this round Tres Blah has a midi skirt. I think they may have some longer skirts and more every day not low cut clothes. Alaskmetro recently redid her skins and they look maybe not 40s but more mature than others. She also has a small selection of clothes like a longer pencil skirt.
  8. So this is the kind of idea I wanted people to do - add places for people to shop. Personally I was going to add a post later with a few more places. I had seen Valentina E at Fameshed and so was going to mention it even though it is not my style in RL or SL.
  9. To clarify I started this thread becuase I've seen other people say they can't find things that would work for them. So I thought other people could post about where they shop and how to put things together. ESPECIALLY since everyone has a different idea of how they want to look if their avatar is mature. I am not actually doing this for myself, I don't really attribute any age to my avatar and just dress however I want. I'm not saying anyone should dress this way. I am terrible at naming things and naming a thread: Fashion and Appearance Resources for People Who want their Avatars to look mature (over 40) or to find modest dress - Please share your ideas Was too damn long of a name. As for those outfits don't look like what a woman in their 40s would wear. I would wear them and in real life I'm almost 47 but not everyone who is 47 would. I didn't make an avatar with lines or wrinkles on their face because I don't have a good way to do that with mine since it's not something I want to do. Also I routinely get mistaken for being much younger than I am IRL so if I DID want to make an avatar that looked exactly like my RL self I would 1) not have any actual wrinkles but just some fine lines 2) have the avatar with a asymetrical undercut pixie (my RL hair cut) and 3) have sneakers or boots, a pair of skinny jeans and a graphic t shirt since that's what I wear IRL. Also I wouldn't wear make up because I don't wear make up. I actually pulled inspiration for the first look from women I know my age. In conclusion if anyone wants to contribute and help people get ideas for how they can make their avatar look older if they so chose awesome especially if you feel you can pull together looks that are more diverse and show a range of what someone would like to look like.
  10. I've seen a few people talking about the lack of clothe/skins/hair that would work for an avatar that looks 40 and over or people who can't find clothes that are more covered up and not really sexy club wear. So I thought I would start a thread where we can share resources, pictures, ideas etc . I know some people (like myself) love to shop and have free time to be in SL a lot and other people don't so camming around a store to hopefully find a few items that might work is not fun at all so this might help people get in and get out and get the look they want. A lot of times some stores will have items you can wear in different ways to make them look older or younger. A dress that is too short can be worn with leggings or jeans to turn it into a tunic (and honestly if it's a mesh template that is being used someone probably has made it into a tunic.) Or you can use applier or BOM layer to add a tank top or cami if a neckline is showing too much cleavage. So my first recommendation for a store is Neve by Coldlogic. Neve has a lot of nice separates and mix and match pieces as well as having good basics. And there are some wonderful bonuses: the clothes come in 4 color or pattern packs that are 200L and fatpacks are 600L (usually at the time I'm writing this it may change). The clothes also have flexibility via the HUD to make them more wearable with things like belt loops, pockets and waist bands that can be turned on and off, different pant lengths, sweater sets or jackets and tops where the top can be hidden or the jacket. Bodies supported by Neve are Maitreya and all Belleza bodies and now Legacy bodies. Here is two looks I put together using the same Neve sweater. I added the HUDs so you could see the options for what could be hidden (nothing on the sweater could be hidden). I don't have 2 completely different looks on (I was doing this one day before I had to go to work ) but it gives you an idea of how changes can be made. I know the sweater shows a little tummy but I was just trying to show how you can change the feel of an outfit.
  11. well I was going to start a new topic but I uploaded the wrong picture and can't figure out how to delete it and if I cancel and then start a new topic it just comes back up; I feel so stupid right now.
  12. I'm not great at styling with jewelry and accessories but I am used to taking stuff and figuring out how to use it to get the look I want. While I love mesh, I miss the days system and scultpy clothes when you could take the top of a dress and then wear it with a skirt or the bottom of a different dress.
  13. This was the ad for the top and how they wanted to use it.
  14. ok so I don't know what to name the thread I want to make but I did make this look. I know it's probably not exactly what some people are looking for but the whole look and a face close up . The only thing I bought specifically for this was the tank top everything else I had in my inventory. What I'm wearing: Mesh head - LAQ Leia with the shape that came with it Skin -LAQ Natasha , group gift. I used the wrinkle layer on the HUD with the opacity down below 50% so it gives some lines but not a lot and it's not heavy. Top/jacket is from Scandalize and a group gift (free join on the group). They style it as a dress with thigh high boots Under it I'm wearing Izzie's Basic Tank top BOM layer. She also has a long sleeve round neck top but I didn't buy it and I felt it came up too high Leggings are Addams, group gift Boots are from Eurdora I dont know what age I look like exactly, I know not 50+ but this is a more mature look and it's using pieces from places that don't really do that kind of look.
