Fran is coming along...

...Even though it's killing me :)

So, I started Fran on August 2nd, knowing that she would be a tough job. Mentally adding up the bits and pieces was overwhelming. So this is all of what I have so far:

  • Shirt Layer armor on avatar mesh
  • Pants Layer with thigh armor on avatar mesh
  • Underpants layer w/o thigh armor on avatar mesh
  • Socks layer Thigh armor (but I think it doesn't go high enough, so I may just trash that)
  • Gloves on the avatar mesh
  • Smexy sheer undershirt layer with prim dangly bit in front
  • Sculpted prim bracers on the forearms with lots of prims added to the sculpts
  • Prim tail armor
  • Prim ears
  • Prim skirtie
  • Sculpted prim shinguards with lots of prim pieces
    Sculpted prim anklets
  • Sculpted high-heel (double-heel) shoes with claws
  • Avatar shape

So now, all that's left is the little bootie plate thingie on her right foot (presumably for kicking ass), and her helmet. The foot piece will need to be a sculpt, and the helmet... well, nothing like saving the hardest thing for last...

Still hoping to have Fran ready by Mid-September... I'm hoping that Queue Marlowe will have the hair ready by then.

New to the project: Eve Express is making a skin with white eyebrows that will fit Fran nicely :)

1600 customers now!

Amazing but true, traffic at the store has been averaging 50 new customers a day now for some reason. I'm not sure what happened, but now more than 1600 different avatars have been to Wild Style Fashions :)

So, I slaved for a couple weeks, learned how to make sculpted prims, uploaded textures multiple times to get everything right, and FINALLY... I managed to create a Balthier costume for Second Life that does him justice.

Of course, everyone says "Now you need to do Fran!" So, I start slaving away. Then, I'm totally blown away because one of my designer idols - Queue Marlowe of Analog Dog hair - says she wants to work with me! Me? Little ol' me? WOW.

So what's next?

I can't wait to find out...
