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: Three Inexpensive or Free Outfits for Female Avatars

Well, the Sansar Store is starting to fill up with clothing already! Just go to the Sansar Store webpage, select Wearables from the Explore drop-down menu, et voilà!

I tried on three inexpensive or free dresses, and at first I was dismayed when all three had parts of my body and/or underwear showing through them when I previewed them in the Lookbook avatar preview:

It turns out that, when you put on a Marvelous Designer-created garment from your inventory, you must press the Cloth Simulation button in order for it to fit properly without any body parts peeking through. Nyx from Linden Lab had this to say about it:

Anything with the MD logo, please do simulate it, and feel free as a customer to pull at it to help it to lay outside the body where you want it to lay.

You can use it to drape an MD item over a rigged mesh item to make sure that they don’t interpenetrate with each other.

So here are my three inexpensive dresses:

First up is a freebie by Sala Loon, called the Simple Dress:

Next up is a S$5 skirt and matching top ensemble with a camouflage pattern, called the SportKraft Outfit, by Kokoia:

And finally we have my favourite, the Hip and Casual Green Tunic by Whystler. It is also S$5.
