You know, when I first heard that the Sansar development team at Linden Lab was focusing on dressing custom avatars, my first thought was “meh, I’d rather have custom skins first“. But now that I can see all the creative possibilities, I think this is a brilliant move. Dozens of new human custom avatars have appeared on the Sansar Store, and over the weekend I signed in as my alt, Vanity Fair, Sansar supermodel 😉 and picked out a new custom avatar to style.
The Chisaki Asian female avatar is a custom avatar created by KandyBrainz, for sale for S$500 (about US$5.00):
Also available from KandyBrainz is the futuristic top-bun hairstyle, for S$250 (about US$2.50):
As with any custom avatar (well, within reason), you can dress this avatar using any clothing created using Marvelous Designer (and any shoes you buy from the Sansar Store should work with it as well).
Vanity Fair is wearing:
- the Chisaki custom Asian female avatar (there is also a second version with makeup available);
- the top-bun hairstyle;
- a black tracksuit jacket, one of the new items of clothing available for free in your avatar’s Lookbook inventory;
- a pair of black matte sports pants, which I picked up for free quite some time ago, and which I cannot for the life of me find again on the Sansar Store (I think they were these ones by Tremaine, but I’m not sure);
- and a pair of black old kicks sneakers by Wow (S$99 on the Sansar Store).
TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: S$849 (about US$8.50 or CDN$11.30)
By the way, I have tested and I can confirm that custom avatars can wear Marvelous Designer-created clothing originally intended for both male and female avatars. You might have to do quite a bit of tugging and adjusting in Lookbook, though.
