Sansar Store Spotlight: Hellen Custom Avatar by eunicorn

There is something deeply satisfying about getting dressed in Sansar. I mean, who hasn’t tugged and pulled on their jeans in exactly the same way in real life? (Mind you, your real-life jeans might not be as stretchy!)

The jeans I am adjusting in the video above are called jeggings (jeans leggings), and they are sold by Debi Baskerville in her store, in five different colours, for only 50 Sansar dollars each:

There’s also a brand new, curvier custom Avatar 2.0-compatible female avatar for sale on the store by eunicorn, called Hellen for only 150 Sansar dollars (I found out about this via Sansar and Second Life blogger Chic Aeon’s blogpost):

Now, this is a custom avatar, which means that you cannot adjust any of the facial features as you can with the new default Avatar 2.0 avatars, or change the eye colour. But Hellen works with any female Avatar 2.0 hairstyles, so I picked the long ponytail, a pair of Debi’s jeggings (which fit perfectly after some gentle tugging for a minute in Lookbook), the default tan Nexus boots, and the lovely blue Infused Nexus Shirt, a free reward you get after completing the first couple of quests in the Nexus.

Here are a few pictures I took in my own experience (I mean, world…you’ll have to forgive me; this recent change in terminology is going to take me some time to get used to!).

(All pictures were taken in my own world, Ryan’s Garden. You are welcome to come visit and explore my green little world anytime!)

Between Daisy Winthorpe’s shapewear, Ravioli’s rigged attachments, and new custom avatars like this one by eunicorn, I am now completely satisfied with my female avatar options in Sansar. All of these, of course, are interim solutions until Linden Lab releases body deformation for Avatar 2.0 avatars, something Landon Linden (a.k.a Landon McDowell, Linden Lab’s Chief Product Officer, and the person most directly in charge of Sansar’s development) told us was coming within the next 4 to 6 months. Based on the amazing flexibility of the new facial deformation features, I am very much looking forward to this!

I can honestly say that this is the first female avatar that I feel truly comfortable exploring Sansar worlds in! Here’s a picture of Vanity Fair at the Nexus, which I think is the best work that Sansar Studios has done yet in terms of world creation:

Happy shopping and exploring!

Sansar Pick of the Day/Sansar Outfit Outlay: Scorpion’s Lair

Scorpion has created a wonderfully evocative sci-fi experience in Sansar called Scorpion’s Lair. We visited it today on episode 85 (already?!) of Atlas Hopping with Drax and Solas, and it is so wonderful that I decided to make it my Sansar Pick of the Day. The major build is a dimly-lit cathedral-like space with a huge wind turbine where the altar would be found, all located in a fantasy landscape sharply lit from the horizon by a distant sun. Scorpion did a fantastic job creating this space!

I am also going to show off my brand new custom avatar, created by Medhue using his FullSpectrum avatar kit add-on for Blender:

My avatar is wearing:

Custom Avatar: Tyrone by Medhue (S$899 on the Sansar Store and worth every penny, in my opinion)

Dreads Hairstyle: Tentacion dreads by Fabeeo Breen (S$200 on the Sansar Store)

Shirt: black men’s relaxed button shirt by Debi Baskerville (S$50 on the Sansar Store)

Pants: striped charcoal grey slacks by Whystler (only S$5 on the Sansar Store!)

Shoes: male club shoes (which I believe are part of the default avatar clothing inventory in Lookbook)

TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: S$1,154 (about US$11.50 or CDN$15.40)

Outfit Outlay: Ninjas in Sansar!

ninja (忍者) or shinobi (忍び) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare (Wikipedia). Three talented Sansar creators have made beautiful outfits for sale, for those days when you feel like channeling your inner ninja.

For women, there are two options for ninja wear. First up is the basic black Ninja Outfit – Female by Debi Baskerville, for S$99:
