It’s still rather lonely being the first (and, so far, only) fashion blogger in Sansar! But with the latest release of the software, creators can now sell avatar attachments in the Sansar Store. That, to me, really marks the beginning of the fashion market! Here’s a link to all the wearables available for sale, sorted in order by newest items first.
Also new in this latest release is the ability to set your nail colour! Here’s what this looks like in the Avatar Customization module, under the Skintone & Body tab:
You can pick one of the six pre-selected colours, or if you wish, you can click on the multicoloured circle to customize your nails to any colour you wish:
Here I chose a slightly brighter shade of red for my fashion model avatar Vanity Fair’s nail colour.
Now, let’s get shopping! Debi Baskerville has already put a number of items up for sale in the Sansar Store, eyes, wings, and even a bag to cover your head for those days when you’re feeling particularly ugly!
I bought myself a pair of pretty light green eyes for only S$75 (US$0.75 or CDN$0.91). You attach them to your avatar under the Accessories tab in the eyeglasses slot:
I also bought the lovely translucent fairy wings for S$200 (US$2.00 or CDN$2.43). It took me a second to figure out how to attach them. They are located on the necklace slot in the Accessories tab, as shown here:
As Debi mentions in her store listing, Linden Lab has (short-sightedly, in my opinion) restricted the size of avatar attachments to one metre in each dimension. That’s so that you do not block other avatars with oversized attachments like walls or boulders! However, these fairy wings are a grandfathered item because Debi created them before that restriction was enacted! I have a feeling that Linden Lab will ease that restriction somewhat, once they realize that you can have items like this that do not pose an impediment to other avatars around you!
Here are a couple more shots of Debi’s fairy wings, taken in the Fairy Tale Island experience by GlitchNovastar. Notice the transparency of the wings in the photo of Vanity’s back! Debi did a wonderful job with these wings.
So, what are you waiting for? Fly over to the Sansar Store and get your own pair!
