Sansar Outfit Outlay: Red, Gold, and Black!

I haven’t done a Sansar fashion blogpost for quite a while, so I thought I’d show off a look I put together for Sansar supermodel Vanity Fair. Once I saw this jacket for sale on the Sansar Store, I knew I had to have it!

Vanity Fair 5 8 Jan 2019

I love the military styling, the draped chain details and the metallic shoulders; it totally reminds me of something Michael Jackson would wear! So I paired it with a few other items already in my inventory, and behold! My red, gold, and black look was complete!

Sansar Tutorial: Clothing Creation Using Marvelous Designer

vintage-1047275_1280

Lacie, a Linden Lab employee, has made the following tutorial video series and posted it to YouTube and to the Fashion channel on the official Sansar Discord server. In it, she takes the viewer step-by-step through the process of making a shirt in Marvelous Designer 8, texturing it, and then importing it into Sansar to wear on your avatar.

This sort of tutorial is very useful for people (like me), who one day want to become virtual fashion designers in Sansar. I had created twenty articles of clothing for male and female avatars using a previous version of Marvelous Designer last winter, but I haven’t touched the software since February 2017, so this tutorial series is a welcome refresher for me of some nearly-forgotten skills. It’s also perfect for the absolute beginner!

Here’s Part 1, which covers the creation of the clothing in Marvelous Designer (please note that the sound on these videos is really faint, so you will have to turn your speaker volume up to its maximum to be able to hear Lacie’s voiceover, or use headphones):

Part 2 goes over how to texture your clothing:

And finally, Part 3 covers how to export your garment from Marvelous Designer to Sansar:

Thank you, Lacie!

Sansar Pick of the Day: TurnupVR

I have been seriously remiss in not doing more of my Sansar Pick of the Day profile series, which is something I hope to address in 2019. This particular blogpost is long overdue. Nebulae is one of my favourite creators in Sansar, and a very talented programmer whose enthusiasm for the platform is infectious. I’ve been a big fan of her work ever since she created the fun-to-play Accuracy Training Module experience, which was a simple but wonderful demonstration of Sansar’s scripting abilites at that time.

TurnupVR is a fun and funky curvilinear space with lots of purple neon lighting; essentially it’s a shopping mall and a showcase for Nebulae’s work:

Scattered throughout are two different kinds of kiosks. The first kind of kiosk is an in-world vendor, which allows you to page through a particular store’s wares, eight panels at a time. Here’s the kiosk that Nebulae very kindly set up for my own brand, RSVF (Ryan Schultz Virtual Fashion), which allows the user to browse through a selection of men’s and women’s clothing I had created using Marvelous Designer:

Nebulae even included such thoughtful details as a small icon in the upper right corner of each item listing to indicate whether it is for male or female avatars. But the best part is, you can buy the item directly from the kiosk! No need to load up the Sansar Store website! This is a perfect example of Linden Lab stepping back and giving its insanely talented pool of content creators free reign to solve a problem: in this case, the lack of in-world shopping.

The second kind of kiosk gives event organizers the ability to set up a series of stops on a self-guided tour along a particular theme:

For example, the front kiosk in this row gives the user a list of Christmas light experiences in the local chat window, when it is clicked on:

Each of the blue links in local chat takes you to a different experience. Each tour also has a dedicated webpage on the TurnupVR website. Nebulae programmed it so that this page is automatically generated when someone sets up one of the themed kiosks in their own experience.

For example, they recently had a Black Friday Shopping tour, and I placed one of the tour kiosks in my Ryan’s Garden experience:

When a visitor clicks on the kiosk, they can directly buy the item I had placed on sale!

I will be celebrating New Year’s Eve offline, with real-life friends here in Winnipeg. It looks like we’re going to have a cold night! 😉

Meanwhile, in Winnipeg…

If you are looking to spend New Year’s Eve online, here are a few options on the various social VR platforms:

Sansar

Eliot (Linden Lab’s Community Manager for Sansar) will be hosting three New Year’s Eve events in Sansar in different timezones:

High Fidelity

High Fidelity will be hosting a round-the-clock event at The Spot from Monday, Dec. 31st 2:00 a.m. to Tuesday, Jan. 1st 4:00 a.m. (Pacific Time).

Sinespace

As part of its Winter Festival, Sinespace is hosting a New Year’s Eve party. Check the login page of your Sinespace client for more details.

VRChat

The best place to find out what New Year’s Eve parties are happening where in VRChat is, as always, the VRChat Events Discord server. Apparently, there’s a round-the-clock party happening at Void, according to AgentM83:

They’re partying in every time zone all day long (started this morning).


However you choose to ring in the new year—online or offline, alone or with friends, awake or asleep!—may 2019 bring you happiness, peace, and prosperity.
