I’ve been waiting to see what mesh could do for art deco dresses in SL. Let’s face it, prim panels stuck on the hips of an av in a tight system layer dress do not successfully simulate 20s tunics or the slinky siren dresses of the 1930s. Check out this month’s Genre for Senzafine’s mesh gown—shown here in black and also available in brown—and for a couple of mesh takes on shorter dresses. Genre is also offering gorgeous Art Deco jewels.
Honestly, I tried to add smoke to that cigarette but all the brushes I have just add digital line drawings where smoke should be. Portia’s Essences skin is one of the Noodles gacha skins at The Chapter Four.
If you’re curious what mesh can do for traditional Japanese clothing, which has also long suffered from awkward prim skirts and sleeves, check out the Yukata Festival, which runs to the end of the month at the Kyoto Bakumatsu sim. Most of the creators have demos, and you’ll be excited to discover that there’s quite a variety of mesh yukata templates, some of them better than others. I was tempted most by the ones from Sakka’s Studio. Portia’s yukata from Nonko is actually a Lucky Board win. There are quite a few boards at the festival, so you can kit yourself out for free. And if you’re not patient enough for LBs but are strapped for cash, you should check out the 77L offerings at the scary Tanabata mystery thing.
There’s nothing quite like Nonko prints. This one combines snails and mushrooms (I think they’re mushrooms) with images from Alice in Wonderland. The obi is covered in cats. And there’s a cat-face fascinator for those of you who have run out of creepy mask accessories. Gotta love Contraption in a feminine mood.
