    There are a lot of that style, though it's not Kimono, rather it's Chinese "Cheongsam" style (though Cheongsam mean "long dress" LOL) - Qipao and Cheongsam are the same thing that look just like the OP picture (but usually longer to cover the groin area better) - BUT, it IS SL, right?

    Anyway, mostly just adding that if you search Market Place for "Asian" or "Chinese" - you'll get pages of this style dress (lots of Japanese styles also, and lots that are definitely SL-only-never-in-RL styles, too LOL

    Thank you for the clarification! What dres me to that dress is actually the transparency and the quality of the materials even though it's clear. Thanks to this thread I've found a bunch of similar options too! I'll peek at others in that style too. Thanks again!

  2. I'm not sure about free doll skins, but SongBird sells a tattoo layer/omega applier that gives doll joints (and optional cracks) to any skin you may already have. It's only L$175 so it's not that expensive, especially if you'll be using it a lot. 

    If you're using a mesh body you can use any skin you already enjoy and turn your shininess sliders all the way up to give it the appearance of glass. Combine that with the doll applier mentioned above and you already have a great base for a doll avatar. 

    I actually made a broken doll a while ago, you can see her in the attached file. She's one of my favorite avatars. I went for the creepy vibe with her, but you can make a pretty, unbroken doll with the tattoo layer too. You can get a more in depth look at her (more pics, info on the skin I used under the tattoo layer, etc) in the blog post about her.

    As far as Lolita products, I know a ton exist but I don't know the best place to snag them. I'd keep an eye out for events with cutesy or Japan/anime themes, they tend to bring in a lot of Lolita stuff.


  3. I'm a shiny broken doll today... God I have fun playing with new looks.The full body is all filled with cracks and doll joints but it's also not wearing clothing so no posting it here. It'll be in my blog post tomorrow!Doll_009.thumb.png.eaf4b4b30b8a746f300223e8c3e02e34.png

  4. Maitreya and Slink are both Omega compatible, you just have to get the Omega Kits. If you purchase skins that are made for Omega you can use them across all Omega compatible parts. IMO it's worth picking up the relay kits (they're cheaper if you're in the group and buy them in world at the store than on the Marketplace) and ensuring a perfect match with one skin purchase.

  5. Oh my goodness you look adorable! Just like Marianne said, corgis are small dogs. Size and Age are non synonymous, though I do understand being cautious. Since you haven't run into any issues I wouldn't worry too much. Kemono is pretty popular, especially with furries, so lots of people are familiar with it.

    I'll actually be picking Kemono up next week I think. Are you enjoying it? The lack of demo is driving me nuts.

  6. http://meshbodyaddicts.com/ is a wonderful resource for details on mesh heads and bodies. The page on the Damon head mentions that it goes well with most mesh bodies. Demo bodies that you are interested in, and make sure to demo skins on them as well to get an idea of what you may want. For my male I ended up going with a Catwa Daniel head, Slink body, Vista hands, and a Nivaro skin. The skin is where most of your realism will be coming from.

  7. Welcome back, Kain!

    It really depends on what you're looking for. Are you going feral or more humanoid? It's becoming more and more popular to use a mesh body (such as Kemono or Slink) and then purchase the head, paws, tail etc. separately. That said, you can also go the oldschool route and use a predone avatar (such as Luskwood). Some people mix the two, purchasing a premade and then swapping the body out with a mesh body. 

    Depending on how large you want the breasts you may be able to get away with just using a mesh body and adjusting the sliders for breast size. 

  8. In addition to Amethyst's spot on description, I recommend playing with some bento demos to see if they feel right to you. You can get free demos for Vista's bento hands and for various Bento heads (LeLutka and Catwa being the two most popular currently). You can play around with the demos on your own character and see if you enjoy the products.

  9. While not identical, this is something similar. The photo is blonde but the product is in blacks and whites:
    There is a demo you can try as well.

    These are a bit closer, though the bangs are a bit long:
