Basics

We all love Second Life™ and we all want to look simply fabulous. But, in order to look flawless, clothes are not the only thing we must pay attention to. I have elaborated a list of what you need to get in order to look fabulous. Here are the basics that, in my opinion, every Second Life™ Fashionista should have.

 


Skins

The first thing you must get is a skin that reveals who you truly are. Your skin will be your signature, it will be what you’re wearing when you’re not wearing anything. You must choose a detailed skin, created with attention and grace. Here is a list of stores that you can choose from:

L’Etre
ItGirls
Fiore

The Skinnery
Swallow
Essences
Tableau Vivant/Glam Affair

TheShops

 


Mesh Body

We live in a virtual era where a mesh body is necessary for a Second Life™ Fashion lover. Most of the clothes created nowadays are rigged especially for these mesh bodies.
My advice is choosing a body that is versatile and does not alter, but solely enhances the regular avatar shape. This way, you can customize your shape in any way that you desire. These are the most common (and recommended) places where you can find mesh bodies:

Maitreya
Belleza
Slink
TheShops


Eyes

When it comes to eyes, I can be but subjective. I am in love with the eyes I am wearing, and I do not plan on changing them any soon. They are from AMITOMO. You can also find eyes at:

Fiore
Mayfly
L’Etre


Mesh Heads

If you are not satisfied with the way your regular head looks, you can opt for a mesh head. They are easy to wear and look fabulous, however they do not have as many customization options as the regular heads (you can only adjust the width and the length of them, as Second Life™ does not yet allow face rigging). You can find mesh heads at:

TheShops
Slink
