  1. Check out Junk - I just found it on the MP today and they have some cute but industrial looking items - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/77950 Oh and for midcentury: Soy - Main store, Soy (82, 224, 2505) - Moderate
  2. I found this explanation on another thread by Skell very clear and helpful in figuring out how Omega works. Otherwise, if you're looking for other skins - look for their head and body appliers for Maitreya as mentioned in previous posts.
  3. Hah good point. I spent a couple of hours trying on demos I'd been queuing up from the marketplace. Realized a store I thought would be super cute turned out to be kinda meh. So +1 for demos :p. Now if I can only figure out why shoes that say they're for the maitreya body attach on about half a foot in front of my feet!!
  4. Not sure what your style is but Addams and Bowtique have some items that are a bit less boobs-out-there.
  5. Thanks for this useful tip! As an aside, I feel like the general trepidation/misconception of mesh bodies isn't just about the bodies themselves, but about the changes to how SL is used from back in the olden days. I realize this is obvious to those who have been inworld for recent years as mesh bodies became a thing, but as an oldie, I didn't realize until actually playing with the bodies that really it's just based off of your base avatar shape. It makes body joints(?) smoother (and more often than not, the rear-end bigger). I think part of the trepidation for folks who have been o
  6. We're currently working on heads and bodies - and I noticed that Logo heads use the same wear point for their head alpha as Maitreya does for their body alpha - so they can't overlap...any suggestions as to what we can do to remedy that? EDIT: Sorry - as expected some stores have full body alphas which is what was needed. Logo is not one of them (not in their head section anyway) LAQ's full body alpha doesn't alpha the eyes...Catwa's does!
  7. Ah very useful! I had seen somewhere on the forums about Lumae having all of the major appliers available. I think we should likely start there first as we run around checking out the demos. Thanks for that tip! And thanks again @Skell Dagger for the explanations! It's making my searches on the marketplace make a bit more sense!
  8. Hehe thanks for your CSR qualifier . I did wonder how all of the head appliers could account for the skin tones of all of the body appliers, and vice versa, and now I see that it's not universal, which logistically makes sense. Has someone made a list of universally known pairings of head/body matches? You mention Bento heads. I believe I would be more drawn to these to try to keep my custom look that I've had for these 13 years (if I decided to go mesh instead of stay with my system head). Is Bento something that Catwa or other head appliers incorporate into their heads, or is Bento
  9. Thanks so much for your minitutorial Skell - I've been reading through the forums all day and of course you're right - my friend got a classic avatar with mesh clothing. It made sense therefore that the AIMI classic skins worked on her shape. Just a couple of questions: To continue wrapping my head around this, no pun intended. If I buy a Catwa head - will I receive a Catwa head applier when I buy the head, or do I need to buy the head-applier separately? Likewise with Omega appliers, is this available at some central Omega store, or will Catwa have an Omega applier I can buy so
  10. I think what we had our friend do (because we're blind leading the blind) was adjust her shape (Edit Appearance) of her starter av and look for system skins that worked with that. AIMI skins just weren't her jam. The terminology you've presented is very helpful - thank you!
  11. 2006 AV - Just got back into SL a few days ago after a few years off and I'm totally rockin my classic non-mesh av and still think I'm adorable in it, even with an old school Zaaya *Pipal* flexiprim dress heh. I like the floof. And am thankful that the skin that I got back in 2008 still looks great!
  12. Hi all - 2006 account here, so I'm very much stuck in the classic AV with my old school skin. I'm okay with this. It's been a while since I've been in SL, but have been back in the last few days discovering Magika hair, and have also introduced a friend to SL. Because classic avatars aren't a thing for newbies anymore, she ended up with a mesh starter avatar and in general we've been having a nightmare looking for skins. We first went to LAQ skins and tried a demo, but her skin didn't actually change. Our best guess is there's some sort of mesh magic she wasn't invoking. So we boug
