  1. Consider fatpacks. They're a bit pricier, but just being able to change the color/pattern of something can go a long way to a full wardrobe. Heck, I'll buy a few colors of the same top in RL sometimes! Some places will actually have two or three different styles in a pack, too; I know Blueberry sometimes does this, where one fatpack of a skirt might have a short and a long version, etc. You might do well to spend a small amount on a couple of decent clothing groups, as well, for a few group freebies. Personally, no, I don't think it's weird. I have a few friends who almost never change outfits, or rotate between just a few things. Whatever makes you happy. I'll live in the same thing for days, sometimes; or change three or four times in a single day!
  2. The preferable solution is as mentioned: remove the body part when not using it. I have a handy outfit with all of my "adult" attachments for easy access, and/or they're in my Firestorm favorite wearables and just a couple easy clicks away. Full time wear isn't really practical, and others will thank you for just taking it off.
  3. If they have Slink physique body appliers, those should work for your hands and feet.
  4. No. The colors in your Maitreya HUD will only affect the nails built into your Maitreya hands, not add-on nails from a third party. You would want to hide those nails completely to use the add-on Empire nails. If the nails don't come with a color HUD and no additional colors are made specifically for them, look for Omega nail appliers. According to the ad, those will work, and they're pretty common. They also say there are fatpacks available at their inworld store; perhaps those will have different colors? ETA I own the Astralia nails posted above; the almond shape is very similar to what you posted, and I know those come with a small color HUD and that there are lots more you can buy for them. I've also seen other nail systems, but if you really love the Empire ones, demo to make sure they'll work for your hands!
  5. Hiding the nails is simple, and yes, you should do it. In the last tab of your Maitreya HUD is a small box towards the right side (under foot positions, I think) with pictures of different nails. The one with a slash line through it is to hide the nails. The others are for different lengths and shapes. You can get kind of long nails just with what's built into the Maitreya bento hands, but for really long ones like in the picture, you need to buy add-on nails. I have some from Astralia, but as others mentioned, there are many options. Just make sure the ones you choose work with Maitreya hands.
  6. I've always felt the shape of TMP was the best, at least for the ladies. The system makes it unusable. I may try the demo at some point, but it would take a lot to convince me to buy it. Plus, at this point, who's going to make clothes for it? And that's not even mentioning the fact that those who purchased deluxe were promised free updates, especially as it was in beta. Paying another $2500L? No, thanks.
  7. What happens when you try? What does it look like? Too big, too small, doesn't load...? If you're trying to use hairbases, you need something made specifically for TMP; nothing else will work. If the hair is too big or too small, you may need different hair. Most hair now is rigged mesh, which means you cannot resize it. You may need to hunt for unrigged mesh hair, so you can resize. Without more detail, though, it's hard to be more specific.
  8. Does it mention if Steffi is the head used in that skin ad? Many skins have shaped included with them; often this is also in the demo for the skin, so you could give that a try Grab the demo and see if there's a shape included, then wear the shape and apply the demo skin and see if it's what you're looking for. Skin has more influence than you think, so don't forget about it when you're fiddling with your shape. It won't change the basic facial structure, but it can make it look a lot different!
  9. Each account is an "avatar" and you cannot have more than one per account. You can, however, have as many different outfits, appearances, and personae on that account as you wish. You can even switch genders inside that one account if you want to; or hair color, or race, or species, or any and all of those at once, as often as you'd like. For a completely separate avatar, however, with a different name, etc., you'd need to create an "alt" account. Many people have several of those for various purposes. Keep in mind each alt is its own separate entity with its own inventory; unless your items are transferable, you won't be able to share items between them.
  10. At this point, I think what would probably help most is for you to take a snapshot of your entire screen. There's a selection option in the snapshot window to include HUDs in the snapshot; click that, take a nice big photo of your whole screen, and post that here so we can see you and everything you have on/ active.
  11. Skins can't be "locked". They can glitch, in which case a relog usually helps. However, from your description, I'm thinking maybe a couple other things. 1. You're trying to remove the skin. You can't; skins can only be replaced. If you were wearing a separate skin applier, you'll need to reapply it. If you were wearing a default skin, you can deselect it from your head or body HUD. 2. You reapplied your old skin but still have DEMO painted on you somewhere. Clear tattoo layer on your head or body, or blush layer on your head. 3. You're seeing chunks of a different skin through the one you're wearing. Did you remove your alpha by mistake? Make sure you are wearing a full body alpha, and/or one that includes both head and body. ETA: Some head skins include an option to "clear layer" or "remove." This is for makeup, not the skin itself. To get your old skin back, reapply it from your head Master HUD or whatever separate applier you used previously. Again, you cannot remove a skin.
  12. LAQ doesn't come with eyes because it works with system eyes, or other mesh eyes. You can purchase LAQ rigged mesh eyes separately, but they are not required. The texture you bought is likely to only work with the LAQ rigged mesh eyes, though. Personally, I quite like them, but you can stick with what you have already if you'd rather not spend the money.
  13. It's an alpha glitch and there is no fix, sadly. Same thing happens with a lot of things; hair does it sometimes, and I occasionally see it around the nails on my Maitreya body. Short lashes may do this less, but there's no preventing it entirely.
