When I blogged about the mesh heads from The Shops, I mentioned that 3rd parties would be able to make appliers for them. Today I got to play with the first one I have seen around, Deetalez Vanity skin applier. I am wearing it on the “Soft” head and well, yes, I have to admit, I love love love the look, although it’s a bit young for me. Makes me want to try it on the classic head as well, but yeah… budget… Oh well, I suppose I could brave the lag and grab a demo.
Anyway, the Vanity skin applier will be released at Skin fair and if you have one of the The Shops head, it’s sure worth a try!
For now, the face is come as is. There are no make ups available for now, but I’m sure that once the dust with the releases fro Skin Fair settles down, there will be some make up releases!
Mind you, the applier program for the The Shops heads is still in beta, so it’s not flawless yet. So is there for now no possibility to have a dedicated neck texture to ensure a seamless transition from the ghead to the body. I have been fiddling with windlight a bit and picked one that actually barely shows it, but under some light choices, the difference is pretty dramatic. There is definitely work to be done here by the Shops people. Courageous from Steffi to put herself out there already! As the heads/applier program advances, free updates will be available, so don’t be afraid of adopting now.
The applying process is (typically Shops) not very intuitive. Unlike with SLink Visage, where you can apply directly from the skinners HUD, you need to load the applier here in your Style HUD and move from there. It’s tormenting to see all the make up options I have from the shops, and not being able to mix and match with the applier, but I have no idea whether that would be even possible, or that it’s just my wishful thinking.
Either way, If you have a Shops head, DO go try Deetalez’ at Skin Fair when it is open, because I think you’ll love how it looks. I may like hers better than the original Shops textures anyway.
Deetalez is located on Skin Fair 3. SLurl will follow when the fair opens.
