Sansar Store Spotlight: The First Custom Avatars Have Appeared in the Sansar Store!

Well, that didn’t take very long at all! Less than 48 hours after the latest update to Sansar (which allowed you to create your own custom avatars), and the first custom avatars are already available for sale from the Sansar Store!

First up is Ravioli’s gargoyle avatar, which is FREE:

Then there’s Fabeeo Breen’s zombie avatar, which is also FREE:

And following quickly on Fabeeo’s heels was Nya Alchemi, who released a cute boar avatar, which is also FREE:

Also up is a Frankenstein-inspired female monster avatar called “Yolandenstein”, for sale for S$5,000 (US$50):

By the way, here’s a link to the new Avatars section of the Sansar Store. (Check back often to see what’s new!)

So I bought all three free avatars and went into Sansar to try them on. There’s a new section under the Avatar tab in the Lookbook which allows you to select a custom avatar:

Just click on the custom avatar you want to wear, et voilà ! Be sure to click the Done button at the bottom to save your changes:

(Note that you will not be able to wear any human clothing on a custom avatar, as it is essentially a single piece wearable. The clothing must be part of the avatar.)

Here’s my boar avatar at Nya Alchemi’s S.L.A.R.P. experience:

Tonight I wanted to show you all of the saved outfits of my “Sansar supermodel” Vanity Fair—all 31 of them! This is like a history lesson in Sansar costuming, and these are some of my favourite costumes since the official launch of the fashion market in Sansar on December 18th, 2017.

Sansar Store Spotlight: Hair by Cora

As Sansar’s first, and so far only (with the exception of a single blogpost by Strawberry Singh) fashion blogger, I scan the Sansar Store daily for new things to show you.

One of the things that has surprised me is that there are still so few people making hair for Sansar avatars. Among those creators is Cora, and I would like to show you a few of her beautifully textured hair designs, all of which can be endlessly recoloured using the hair tab in Lookbook.

First up is her newest release, the Kim braided updo bun hair for S$150 (click on each picture to see in a larger size):

Cora also sells the beautiful brown eyes I am wearing for FREE. (They attach on the ear slot, so you can wear them with glasses which use the eye slot.)

Here’s another of her hair designs I love, the Andrea long wavy hairstyle:

Finally, we have the Kelsey messy bob hairstyle (which also comes in a men’s version):

There are several more hairstyles available on Cora’s store in the Sansar Store, so be sure to check them out!

The Sansar Store Reaches a Milestone: 10,000 Items!

The Sansar Store has reached an important milestone today: the 10,000th item has just been listed for sale!

What is the 10,000th item? Snow has figured out a neat trick to make your avatar body invisible, and so he decided to put it up in the store as a free item. Snow explains:

It’s just a rigging bug that creates really big attachments. Similar to the bug that caused the bunny ears, but it works differently. I made a cube attachment that’s too big to see. Because it encloses the avatar, the body gets culled when saving in lookbook.
Here’s a short video by Snow showing an application of this technique:

 

As you can see, it has all kinds of applications!
