I am disappointed when I find a dress I like and there is no demo available. My buying habits are simple. If a clothing item costs more than L$50 and has no demo, I won’t buy it. I probably won’t buy any dress or blouse that costs less than L$50. If I violate those limits I find I am disappointed about 9 out of 10 times.
So, what do I do with those demos? Here is a video showing my basic process. Dress makers should consider this process. I use it when I test demos and when I make clothes. I figure stuff I make has to pass these tests. So, stuff I buy should pass them too.
The first dress is tight fitting camisole ‘sheath’ and has a sizable leg slit. It is tight fitting and that makes poke through VERY likely.
The dress works well with the upper body (TM: 0:30). It is possible to peak in and see a nipple. But, one has to work to get a peak. That works for me. I don’t want to be flashing everyone when just standing. But, if he is all that interested…
The deal breaker problem is the slit on the right leg. Because the legs poke through when walking I need to use the Slink body’s alphas. But, Slink uses rings of alpha on the legs. Hiding poke through (TM: 0:50) by the inner left leg, also hides leg exposed by the slit. This dress isn’t going to work with my mesh body.
I can use this dress with my classic body. My skin is useable with both classic and mesh. I can use the included alpha layer with the classic body to make the dress wearable.
The second dress is another tight-fitting sheath with a U neckline and long sleeves. The dress works well with my Slink body but, needs some alpha help.
I find more and more often I am wearing my mesh body. So, clothes have to make it through this testing. I also am beginning to avoid mesh clothes that require I use the mesh body alphas. Those alphas are a problem if I am playing in RLV areas. Quite often the Slink HUD refuses to work in those areas. I am still figuring out how to keep it working and have RLV working.
I used Snatch demo clothes in the video because I had just picked up several Snatch demos to try. Snatch has some really nice stuff I like. So, I am NOT picking on or slamming them. Nor are these two dresses representative of all their stuff. These are the two of 6 that fit my mesh body the worst. The second dress fits well enough to suit me. I don’t see Snatch as being the best mesh clothes. There are way way worse makers. The Snatch clothes are good and many are WAY cute or sexy. I do buy some of Snatch’s stuff. The newer stuff seems to be fitting and working better, at least for me. So, stop by and check out their store: Snatch Main Store.
