What are the most suitable Skins, Clothes shops for Legacy Body and Genus Head (Strong Face) either inworld and Marketplace Am new to this BOM thing so if there are options for this I would appreciate an explanation on how to make it work. That way I could use it for Skin, Make Up or Tattoos
Hello lovely people, I have been using an avatar with an inbuilt head for some time and have just switched to using a Maitreya Lara body, which does not come with a head. And this has thrown me back into beginner territory.... I have been told that I just need a *skin* in order to choose a nice new face. So... I reset my body to a standard SL 'classic' female body and then added the Maitreya Lara body and alpha. So far so good... I have the nice new body and the standard SL head with its face poking out the top. I have one of the Maitreya *shapes* worn. I then went to stores 'LAQ' and 'Catwa'. Ignoring their (great) 3D mesh heads... When I try some of the *skins* on sale the new face gets applied but looks all distorted. But in some cases you get a *shape* with the skin and this fixes it. But this shape seems to override the whole body's shape as well as fixing the face. I am going round in circles not really understanding shapes, skins and heads! *cries* In short I have three questions: Do I need to buy a base Catwa or LAQ (or some other) *head* in order to apply their skins to it? Or should they work with the default avatar head underneath (i.e. without masking it off) What about shapes? Can I keep my own body shape and then use a 3rd party skin (for the face) or will I always have to use the shape that comes with the skin? Can you have a shape for just the head and a shape for the body or can you only wear one shape overall? If anyone can help me untangle this I will be very grateful! Thank you! Katy xx
