Outfit Outlay: Highlander/Minotaur

Time for another rummage in the closet to pull together a look! This time I bought the Highlands Outfit for Male Avatar from the Sansar Store for S$400 (about US$4.00 or CDN$4.88).

Highlands Outfit 16 Sept 2017

The detail on this outfit, as with all the clothing sold by Sansar Studios, is very well done. I paired this outfit with the Minotaur head I purchased yesterday at Alfy’s 50% off sale, which is still going on as of today. The head attaches over the default male avatar head via the eyeglasses attachment slot, as shown here:

Outfit Outlay: Red Nails, Green Eyes, and Fairy Wings!

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:Outfit Outlay Fairy Wings 10 Sept 2017

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!

It’s lonely being the first (and so far, only) fashion blogger in Sansar. (Now I know how the Maytag Repairman used to feel.)

As I said before, Sansar Studios is currently the only game in town when it comes to avatar fashion. The Western Outfit for Male Avatar is available for S$400 (about US$4.00 or CDN$5.06) on the Sansar Store.

Here’s a closeup of the Western Hat for Male Avatar, available for S$100 (about US$1.00 or CDN$1.27):

The hat comes with a beard attached, which is kind of annoying if you prefer your cowboys to be clean-shaven. As I mentioned before, you can tint the cowboy’s hair any colour you like (but unfortunately, you cannot tint the beard). Also, I noticed that the beard is hovering slightly off of the default avatar’s face on both sides of the face near the ears.

Here’s my avatar all dressed up in his new cowboy outfit, at the Sansar experience Hootenanny, by Lillani.  (It is just me, or does he have a slight paunch?)

The detail on this outfit, like the other outfits that Sansar Studios is selling, is very good. Here’s a closeup of that belt buckle, also showing the stitching detail on the shirt and the blue jeans:

So saddle up, partner! Slap on your Stetson and head on down to Hootenanny and try your hand at horseshoes and other fun games.

Outfit Outlay: Highlander

You know, it’s lonely being the first (and only) fashion blogger in Sansar. Sometimes I feel like I am a million miles away from everyone else, far, far, away in the Highlands….

Highlander Vanity Fair 7 9 August 2017

As I have said in an earlier blogpost, Sansar Studios is currently the only company making and selling avatar clothing in Sansar. Here Vanity Fair is wearing the Highlands Oufit for Female Avatar (S$400) and the Highlands Hair for Female Avatar (S$100) for a total outfit outlay of 500 Sansar dollars for the look you see here. (That works out to about $6.34 Canadian/$5.00 American.)

You might not have known that the hairstyle is tintable to any shade you desire: blonde, brunette, white, black, grey, purple, pink, you name it. To tint your purchased hair, just go into avatar customization, click the little comb icon on the left hand side to bring up the hairstyles palette, then select the hair you want to colour so that your avatar is wearing it.  Click the coloured circle pointed to by the red arrow in the diagram below:

A colour chart will pop up, and you can select any shade you desire. Easy! I tinted this Highlander hairstyle a lighter brown than the default colour so that it stands out a bit more from the dark brown fur on the collar of this outfit.

Here’s a few close-ups of the amazing cloth, leather and chain-mail texture work on this garment. Check out the fur on those boots! Some poor virtual animal had to suffer 😉

Appropriately enough, these photos were all taken in the Sansar experience called Highlands.
