It’s been awhile since my last blog post! Perhaps to long but I kinda hit a rut after looking to change somethings on my blog. I figured out that changing things wasn’t really what I wanted to do! Decided to instead take a bit of a break then jump back in when I was feeling more inspired. What can I say all this vintage stuff coming to SL is amazing and has truly inspired meh! I really hope you all enjoy! This picture was a inspiration of a 70’s movie night!
On to the reviews!
The blouse and pants are created by TABOU. And this is one of my first experiences with this creator. I will admit the fit on the top is not the best there is some clipping with my AO in the elbows. I tried solving this with the alpha hud included with maitreya. I am a very firm believer that alpha’s are needed sometimes and are 100% acceptable form of fixing small problems. Sadly the clipping is still there and alphaing out anymore of the elbows causes the arm to be shown alphaed. Another item of note is the texture of the shirt. The demo didn’t have a pattern and most likely this be a non issue on a solid color version of the shirt. The texture is a bit blurry and the shadows a tad to bold and off. This isn’t really a issue unless you’re zooming in closer to your self. It’s not a complete deal breaker it’s just something to be aware of.
The Jean’s require the use of alpha’s also but can be fully fixed. I didn’t bother wearing shoes. The jeans I was wearing where the flat versions. I did have to put my foot at a medium height to stop it from clipping through the bottom of the jeans. I do not think that shoes would be wearable with the flat version of the jeans! Honestly I liked them better dragging the ground anyway as it gave a more 70’s feel to them. The overall textures were not bad either. The belt did come with a texture change hud so they’re a bit of customization offered. Overall even with their shortcomings I still like the set and the price was reasonable.
The hair there not to much to say it’s a new release from truth. Its called Sorcha. It looks amazing and comes with several options and ways to wear it. The new hud system gives three chest sizes a default, Size 2 and Size 3 which seems to lengthen the hair placement from the body. Allowing for the bigger chested to fit the hair properly. It also comes with bangs options in the hud! Then it comes with his new color huds. This hair is really nice and the braiding is a lovely touch! It’s totally worth checking out and the fit on Catwa head was perfection as always.
